Change is hard! I suppose I like this show a great deal because of the bakers and the way they seem to care about baking, AND each other, so much. I loved the original - and don’t get me wrong, I missed Mary and Mel and Sue a whole hell of a lot initially. Mel and Sue quit the FIRST original show when the producers Read more

There’s nothing they could do to “ruin” the show for me (there’s a bit of ‘whinging’ in the FB fan groups about how people still miss Mel and Sue and Mary).

I have a stupid question: How does ordering from the app even work if you use the drive through? I assume you still have to go through the same line of cars as everyone else, which would seem to make the app a lot less of a time saver. Read more

Unless you have a burner phone that you only use for apps you don’t want to know your privacy (and you always have GPS/cell signal turned off), then they’re going to get personally identifiable data from you. Even things like your screen size and OS versions can still create a digital fingerprint to uniquely identify Read more

I’m of the ilk of data being like toothpaste - once it’s out of the tube it’s out. And that it’s like an STD - once someone has it, everyone can get it, and pretty easily too. I’ve worked in big data and I’m CISA, CISM and CISSP certified (IT security certifications) - if you’ve got FB, Twitter, IG or have signed up Read more
