            My elderly aunt ended up being gifted an iPhone SE. It comes without a charger so I bought a cheap usb-c one but it isn't charging. I don't know why. Can anyone please recommend one to get.

                                      iPhone use their lighting connection to charge rather then universal connection. And confusingly, you can get a usb-c to lightening cable - the usb going into the wall/transformer end.

                                      You might be aware of all of that. Just checking in case you just grabbed a usb-c cable. And of the cheap iPhone cables I’ve had worked without issue - initially at least.

                                              It definitely is taboo. It's tabooness to so ingrained and accepted that people don't even realise.

                                              As an example, I'm sure you are aware that people don't tell friends that are pregnant until first scan/3 months/12 weeks. Ask yourself why.

                                                I think TABOO is entirely the wrong word to use in this case. I think ‘sensitive’ should be the word. It is sensitive information.

                                                Comment


                                                  Yes. Definitely not taboo. In fact a lot of people seem quite willing to share and discuss the pain around the circumstances. I remember reading an academic article by a colleague and friend who I had lost touch with and she described having a miscarriage at a conference and her devastated feelings around it. Deeply moving, and great that it is indeed no longer taboo. - but also it is definitely a highly sensitive topic.

                                                    Sorry just saw this now. Hellmuth chinned. It was live streamed on poker go. They hadn't planned on doing it but made a last minute decision when Phil final tabled. They couldn't show hole cards so you didn't miss much really. Couple of minor rants was all.

I was going to but one as a pressie for a teenager relative. I know the components wear out but how long would you get from one of these? Refurbished.
