Classic car – Jaguar Mk2

Thought for the day…” The only difference between a rut and a grave are the dimensions”

“Happiness is always an inside job”.

The GoPro saga continues.     Customers can forgive a lot if they see that a company is trying, but when a company tries to avoid admitting an obvious problem, then customers rapidly lose confidence.    So far, customer services at GoPro have been far from brilliant and also far from helpful.   There are already a lot of unhappy GoPro 4 Hero Black users on the internet, many of whom have had issues with the camera overheating when recording 4K video (which was the sole reason that I bought that particular camera).   So what would you or I do if you had a product that you knew had a problem??   Continue to sell it?    No.    Offer to refund the money?    Yes.    But so far, GoPro have not offered anything.      The user manual acknowledges the problem, and suggests recording only short video clips at 4K.  Not practical if you are doing action sports, as you can hardly pause the action just to wait for the camera to cool down.     So the emails to GoPro customer service go back and forth.   The GoPro camera sits in its case, no longer used due to the overheating issue.   I would like very much for GoPro to refund my NZD 732 that I paid for it.    My action sports continue, but will be unrecorded !!   Come on GoPro.   You have admitted in the user manual that there is an issue, now do the right thing.

Two photos of an immaculate 1961 Jaguar Mk2 car, seen here in Alexandra, New Zealand.  These cars were built in Coventry, England between 1959 and 1967.   Engine sizes ranged between 2.4L and 3.7L, with up to 220 bhp.     Top speed for the 3.7L engined version was about 201 km/h, although with a high fuel consumption of around 14L/100 km.  The TV detective, Inspector Morse drove a Jaguar Mk 2.

Clear air and beautiful reflections, Autumn splendour.

Another beautiful morning in the hills of Norway for the photo today….clear air and almost no wind…… Did you know that Norway is home to Europe’s highest waterfall (Vinnufosen which falls some 860 m), and also the World’s longest road tunnel (Laerdal Tunnel, at 24.5 km long), and also the deepest road tunnel in the World (Eiksund Tunnel which goes down to 287m below sea level).    It is also home to Europe’s deepest lake (Horninsdalsvatnet which goes down to 514m depth) and has the longest coastline in Europe ( 53, 199 km of coast).     Norway has also won more winter Olympic medals than any other country in the world.    And around 98% of all electricity comes from hydro-electric sources, the highest ratio of any country in the world.   There is a fair amount of water visible in this photo of the lake at Geilo……..

Buyer Beware – caught out again !

Thought for the day…” If we open a quarrel between past and present, we shall find that we have lost the future”  (Winston Churchill).

”  Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever”  (Walt Disney)

We all make mistakes, that is only human.  But what is wrong, and perhaps even criminal, is when companies make mistakes then are unwilling to put them right.    The latest example is by a Swedish based company called Cyberphoto, who trade online around Scandinavia.   Having ordered a new camera from them, I was told that it was on its way to me.  First mistake, as it was not.    So Cyberphoto had raised my expectations that I would soon receive my shiny new camera, but it was not to be.    When it did finally arrive, I saw that Cyberphoto had charged my card twice for the purchase.   I returned the camera due to the poor lens quality (Sony A6000, but the Sony 55-210mm kit lens was just too low a quality for the camera) but I am still waiting on Cyberphoto to refund my money.    It would not be so bad if Cyberphoto replied to emails promptly, but that seems to be too much for them.    So, at the moment, they have both my money and the camera.    And they seem to have gone very quiet too.

Making a mistake is not the problem, we all do that.  But what is wrong is when a company fails to put things right promptly.    Do Cyberphoto think that I would ever order from them again??    Indeed, unless they refund all my money very quickly then they are going to find a court summons landing on their doorstep.    Having been to court before (only as a plaintiff I must add) then I am not afraid to do it again, but it is a sad state of affairs when you have to do this.    But the way that this company is behaving, then it deserves to end up in court.  And they may well do.  Let the buyer beware.  And in this case, let Cyberphoto beware, because this particular consumer many just bite back, and bite back hard.

And today’s photo….some Austin Healey cars seen here in Wanaka, New Zealand.

The fun stops now – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” You cannot have what you do not want”.

“Take time to recharge your batteries.  It is hard to see where you are going when the lights are dim”.

The fun stops now !    Just imagine being out in your Ferrari on a Sunday afternoon.  You just HAVE to drive a Ferrari fast.   Today’s photo was taken Stockholm, Sweden.   The driver of the Ferrari had been driving up and down Strandvagen (an expensive waterfront street in the Swedish capital), a street where a Ferrari does not look out of place.   Clearly he was enjoying the drive UNTIL the flashing blue lights came on behind him.   The famous prancing horse on the badge of Ferraris was originally a symbol of Count Francesco Baracca, who was a pilot in the Italian Air Force.  A Swiss motorist who was caught in 2010 driving his Ferrari near St. Gallen at 137 km/h in a 50 km/h zone received a speeding ticket of USD 290 000.  The fine had been increased because he was a repeat offender.
