    The big switch over

    TV is going digital. The existing analogue TV signal will be switched off and replaced with a new, stronger digital TV signal. It will mean that almost everyone will be able to receive digital TV through an aerial. You may have already been through this changeover, but some areas are still awaiting the arrival of Digital TV.

    Yorkshire TV region - Switchover starts from: 3 August 2011

    Meridian TV region - Switchover starts from: 8 Feb 2012

    Cleanliness is next to Godliness

    In the mid 1800s in Michigan, America, a wife complained to her husband about sawdust and dirt getting embedded in their carpets, and that sweeping alone was not enough to get rid of the dirt. The husband went on to design, and construct a carpet-sweeper to make his wife’s life easier. This machine went on to be a massive success, and people were soon asking where they could get one for their own homes. The husband and wife were Melville and Anna Bissell, and the Bissell Carpet Sweeper was patented in 1876.

    Now, ladies, I know you are probably thinking that your husband wouldn’t invent something for you, but that was not the point I wanted to make! Since then, Bissell has grown, and it isn’t just carpet

    Always improving the site...

    Here you can scroll right through from A-Z and see all the brands that we have available to purchase. At the moment when you click on  Dualit you get taken to all the products by Dualit, but eventually most brands will have a landing page with information about the brand and selected products - maybe even some pretty pictures or offers! Which means if there happens to be a Magimix, Polti

    Sleek, Modern, Stylish...

    The Conran Audio iPod dock is beautiful mixture of stylish, modern design and stunning audio technology, thanks to a brilliant partnership between Armout Home and design guru Sir Terence Conran and his team.

    The iPod dock’s audio engineering comes from Q Acoustics, and the dock is a dedicated “100% pure iPod player” but also features Bluetooth connectivity so devices can be used wirelessly (such as an iPad). Don’t panic if you want to connect other music sources, such as radios, CD and MP3 players – these can be connected through the
