Just seen Dale launching the TSV with that awful woman, not only is she annoying to listen to but she is anything but knowledgable about technology and that is from someone who is anything but a techie and even I know she is a prat. Also I would have no confidence in someone who one day is spouting about naff key rings and the next a computer/tablet.

I would rather stick burning needles in my eyes rather than listen to one second of her.

I could not agree more, LATI. If I had been in the market for a tablet - not into them - or an Archos product - don't like the brand - her being the guest for it, would deter me from buying. Someone who can present a technical product and, simultaneously, a fashion item (handbag holders), with the same enthusiasm, does not say much for her expertise in either area, imho.

Don't normally like to have a go about presenters BUT, for her, I'll make an exception.

She is just rough looking and superficial when she talks about tech... At least she's not wearing one of her clubbing outfits this time!

When are they going to get someone credible for technology?

Dell Boy Trotter comes to mind. And that voice has got to be the most annoying ever, like a nail scraping down a blackboard. For once the shouty females on Q might be a blessing to drown her out.

Time for bed.

Tim Goodwin was an extremely competent and credible technology guest, I felt. I suppose the most proficiently knowledgeable techie we have atm, would be Mat Trim.

Far too good for Q, a proper expert not some barrow boy they trot out to try and pull the wool over our eyes.

Who remembers when Claudie did the tech shows???? I remember on here we all went but doesn't she do the beauty shows as a model?

One minute she was a normal model on QVC, then bang then doing the tech shows(before Tim came), then another bang and full time presenter on QVC.

I agree about Mat Trim. He is by far the most knowledgeable expert on QVC, and he doesn't even show half of his knowledge and expertise. (Photography is a hobby of mine). They really do need a knowledgeable, presentable IT expert. Treating the viewers as idiots by throwing any old presenter into the mix is never going to work long term.

I think Abbey is still a presenter on the Rocks TV American arm of Gemporia too. Jack of all trades comes to mind!

Oh no not that Abbey all day long

Not a lot of QVC for me today...we have hours of Abbey blinding us with science (not) and hours of the my can't/won't watch CR. I think my flexi card is safe today....

How can they present her as a technology expert when they have also had her on presenting ghastly, cheap wrapping paper in the past? At least she has got rid of them dreadful hair extensions. You could see where they had been glued on. I won't be watching much QVC today!

I cannot stand her and her bunch of stock phrases ....... "It's beeeerrrrilliannnnnt", "It's amaaaaazinggg", "You can use it on the go", "Its phenominal"
Her voice is awful and the deliberate diction is very hard to listen to. Makes me laugh when they introduce her as someone who describes things in a manner that we can all understand - yeah, that's coz she doesn't know much!!!

And while I am on the subject of presenters, will someone please tell Charlie to wear some underpants!!!!!!

Awww she should be called "Abbey No Love" from now on lol thank god its not still valentines day lol. I used to like her when she was on IW however she comes across as desperate and tries too hard since she came to Q, I still prefer her to useless Lee though.

I remember her doing the tech items on something for the weekend and she was worse than useless and just as annoying so I'm afraid for me Q is not totally to blame other than the fact that they punish us with her far far too often.

Abbey is "eye candy" nothing more.
Sadly when she opens her Gob it all goes downhill!

I agree we need a decent technology presenter, Tim Goodwin was apparently back, so lets hopoe he is being lined up for the role

Is she really eye candy? Up until very recently she was very bloated and sorry to say, trashy looking. More TOWIE than eye candy I would have said.

If that was the cause I apologise about the bloated part but still stand by the trashy. She still is the most annoying guest

I don't normally agree with the slagging off of about guests, but dear old Abbey Horne, really is an exception, she is somebody to me, as if she had blond hair, you would describe as being very bimboish, and lacking up stairs.

How she can go from selling Christmas tat, to being a guest for an archos tablet is beyond me, does archos realise who is selling there items for them on QVC. Tony Limerick, used to do all the Archos items, he is still around cause I have seen him on QVC, use him not her.

I don't no who was launching the TSV tablet, but if I was QVC, I would use Dale F as techie expert, as he knows his stuff, and I don't no why he needs a quest with him.

I would make sure he was heavily involved on days when there is a Technology TSV, and if that meant he decided to cut down on his other hours, selling items, which don't suit him when well be

I saw part of the launch hour, and I agree, DF seemed to be giving us the technical details about the tablet, and she would go along with him. Which does beg the question : why exactly was she there? She would be getting paid to, supposedly, present the tsv, and provide us with the necessary information, to enable us to make an informed and, hopefully, correct choice whether or not to purchase, none of which she did. Assuming the Q is the party paying her, that says a lot about why postage costs are so high and where that money is going. I certainly wouldn't even contemplate buying any technical product she was endorsing. Why the Q has her as a technical guest, I don't know. I can imagine her doing the turbie twist - that sells itself - but I will always remember her from the auction channel. A reliable source of technical knowledge, she is not. And she told us she deals with technology all day, every day! We are not a few sandwiches short of a picnic, Abby.

I wouldn't but a bag of potatoes from her. She looks and sounds dim and not I would have thought promoting the sort of image QVC try to project.
The constant over emphasis of odd words is grating, but who cares I am switching off pronto! Poor Dale.

I ABSOLUTELY agree.She is ABSOLUTELY the ABSOLUTE worst product presnter I've ever seen.
She seems to think that using that word.."Absolutely" with every single product ,somehow makes it credible.It doesnt. Shes awful.
In fact QVCs tech shows are rubbish these days.They used to have interesting and knowledgable guests like LJ Rich,Katherine,Anis, and many more,who made it all interesting and knew their stuff.Now its pretty much all Abbey,Lee.who blaggs and BS's his way through demos at 100 mph,and Mat Trim who is a colossal bore..to say nothing of Smarmy self satisfied Dale Franklin who generally hosts.
Its pretty unwatchable stuff these days. I wish they would bring back Tim Goodwin and Antony.They always made every Tech show interesting and very entertaining.What they have now doesnt even come close.

"Now, I want you to go through the technical side of this....", said Julia to Abby. Julia said herself, at the onset of the show, that HTTE is not her area of expertise; well, it's not Abby's, either.

I find her really annoying. I wanted to know what the camera meg pixel thingy was on the camera on the TSV today but she never gave out any info on it at all. All she kept going on about was the dual core, which is fine but that is all she seemed to mention and ignored all the other stuff. Also what has she done to her hair? it looks awful, it has put 10-15 years on her. As annoying as she is, she at least looked young and fresh with her old hair style, now she looks like a frumpy soccer mum.

No QVC for me this weekend with those two being on presenting the TSVs. Annoying and boring both of them.
