Bastards.

Why do Google hate the Isle of Man so much? 10,000 public views would have made my channel eligible for monetisation, now I have achieved those views I get told this.

NO JUSTICE.

(Not that I would have monetised the channel, I believe it would besmirch the CREATIVE PROCESS, and it'd only be worth about £1.67p per month anyway, but I guess it links into how we still only get the free Play Store on the IOM, and have to VPN to get the full store.)

EDIT - Any of these countries would be fine though, Zimbabwe, Oman, Guatemala, Azerbaijan.

Can you not just set your country on your account to the UK, or is it geolocating you?

Geolocating, which is why we have to use VPNs to get the full Play Store. (My ISP actually run their own VPN service as a freebie for all their customers, specifically for issues such as this.)

It's not even a problem really, as I wasn't going to monetise the channel anyway. It's more of a pain on YouTube as we sometimes get 'The uploader has not made this content available in your country' for some videos, as we're lumped into the 'Rest Of The World' category rather than a distinct country or part of the UK (and we're not part of the UK, so it's accurate in that regard).

So for example I get this trying to watch the latest Last Week Tonight video, so I have to VPN if I want to watch it.

Because it looks cool.

I dunno, Android is close to Google and Google is YouTube and there's a synergistic theme going on?

If anyone can be arsed please feel free to move the posts to the correct place. Although if we're going to start asking 'Why is Thing Y in Thread Z here at BEEX?', mods gonna be busy as fuck.

What should be is the new GPD XD I ordered over Christmas. It came on Saturday and I've had a quick play with it so far and it seems to be a pretty competent machine. I've been playing some PSone games and Amiga games but it'll do much more.

I'll post more about it when I get to grips with it if anyone is interested?

Why is discussion of what is the proper thread to post things in clogging up the android thread?

Decided to get a cheap spare Android phone to use for work. I'd initially looked at small tablets, as I'll mainly be using it for running apps, so didn't plan on needing a SIM, but the cheap tablets all seemed a bit naff, so I went with a Spark X phone instead. For £70, it seems pretty good so far, and it runs Nougat, which my main phone doesn't. Some really mixed reviews on there, but figured it was worth a go.

Although, I might need to buy a new charging stand, considering the location of the socket on the damn thing.

I've just downloaded an APK file which I was going to use on my new handheld but it has installed fine on my phone through the ES file explorer. I didn't think a phone would install anything other than apps from the official Play store?

It does if you turn the control settings off.

Stupid charging port location aside, it's been a good phone so far. The launcher that it came with seemed to glitch occasionally, so I've switched to Nova and everything has been fine since then. I'm rather liking the default calling app too, Truecaller, with its lookups on numbers as they come in. This is how it displayed a call to me a few minutes ago from one of those "We can see you were recently in a car accident..." companies..

And of course, now WileyFox have gone tits up. I guess an update to fix the occasionally flaky wireless is never going to come now. I might switch it to Lineage OS at some point.
