Thought exact same thing - probably not though.

Looking through it seems that there is tariff free deals on clothing. But for exports Only.
Imports remain the same.

You’d have thought japan would have stuck an automobile tariff in there for when we exit EU with no deal.

not sure if anyone has any advice on this but …

has anyone had on their MacBook a situation where images/open browser windows etc are leaving a shadow when closed, mine has been doing this since monday and its driving me fucking mental. Ive tried to screen grab it but nothing shows up in the screen shots? i'm also finding that white backgrounds on websites/images seem to be showing almost inverted as a light blue, which again makes viewing pretty much anything really challenging.

I dont recall doing anything and it just started when i opened my laptop on monday morning

any help appreciated

Have you tried an SMC and PRAM reset? It usually solves 99% of audio/audiovisual issues.

I realise that I have probably left it too late owing to the transition period ending at the end of December, but I want to go and live somewhere in Europe just now. My job is flexible and I just need to be able to fly to Norway and I'm in the process of getting my flat in the UK ready for renting out etc. I was eyeing up Spain but is it realistic that I could do all the forms and shit in a short space of time? Any help appreciated.

Sounds like an issue with the either the panel or display cable. Best to get it looked at by a pro.

My favourite wallet accidentally got put through the wash, it's camo leather by Maharishi, it was really nice and soft but is obviously dry and cracked now. Obvious fix would be buy a new wallet but my Mrs bought me it about 13 years ago and I've had a good few wallets in between but I've always gone back to it. Is there anything I can do to bring it back?

Sorry for the late response but, is it possible to hook the macbook to another screen like a tv or monitor? If it doesn't show up there and the resets didn't work then it's possible along the lines of what ismvl says and you have a hardware issue.

I would recommend having it checked by the apple store and having them give you a quote on the repair. If you think it's not worth the dough you could always check a 3rd party repair service or use ifixit to give it a go yourself. Although those new MacBooks are notoriously hard to fix yourself mind, as they glue down many parts.

As a disclaimer, I'm out of my depth about hardware repairs, I only handled software issues when working for them…Oops
