    how does it know if you're cycling? (or on the bus, etc)

    Well 'they' already know...

    I assume this will collect the track data without recording who provided it - though the first option is 'sign in withFacebook'.

    Some people use Strava - which makes rather a lot public!

    It doesn't - which is obviously a bit of a problem! It does ask what main means of transport is.

    Moves (now owned by FB) differentiates 'automatically' by making assumptions (presumably) based on speed - but is not 100% accurate.

    My phone is like a pager from 2009 does not do photos, they won"t get me. However screen now cracked and can make loud whining noise in your ear at times. So given that I succumbed to Rapha (you would think there was more than 39per cent merino in their tops) I may crack on the iPhone. Though what I need is a keyboard for the iPad then I could cut and paste things. I can't do touch screens.

    Wow, looks groovy. That lezyne mini-pump I bought from EBC recently is a similar machine tooled thing of great beauty. I did look in halfords but they had none. Also the Tesco at hermiston gait had no paneer. What sort of shopping mall is hermiston gait?

    No paneer in Balerno Main Street true. But cheery bill in the hardware store will sell an individual nail. Also knows a lot about DIY and other stuff. Once sold me a 1 amp fuse for inside a video recorder.

    Scotmid is better than tesoo. But no decathlon
