You have Chromium not Chrome

Chromium is similar to Chrome, but lacks built-in automatic updates and built-in Flash player, as well as Google branding and has a blue-colored logo instead of the multicolored Google logo
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

If I understand "niggle" correctly, here's one,

When I turn on my new Sony TV, it actually says "Sony" on the screen before the channel appears. Are you f'ing kidding me? It's bloody disgusting.

My Panasonic does the same thing. Pitiful, actually. Because when it eventually starts having problems it will remind me of exactly which brand is frustrating me... :P

the game I brought arrived today and it's not in English language despite the cover art being English and the preference to sell this game in the UK but on the bright side I've contacted the seller and he'll give me a full refund including the P&P
