    You've got guests in, it's a cold winters night. You're all sitting in the lounge with your 1 ceramic heater on full blast. Nice and toasty. Rest of the house is FREEZING as you're following IW's expert advice on heating your home. You've been feeling a bit bunged up for a day or two then...

    But surely you'd rather wheel a heater from your lounge, then into your kitchen, then into your bathroom, then back into your lounge, then into the bedroom, then back into the lounge, then ... I'm SURE, I'm 100% CONFIDENT, that ALL the IW presenters practice what they preach ;)

    Haley selling the heaters earlier, usual stuff, Peter V doing his heat party trick thing that's worthy of being on the BBC Royal Institution Christmas Lectures. Haley doing the stuff about not needing to heat the whole house as those of us with central heating do (aye okay Haley, whatever you...

    I'm not saying you should buy stuff hoping it'll go up in value, however I do wonder how many of these collectible coins will prove to be a good investment.

    I know this is the IW forum, however I'm sharing this here as other sections get little traffic. You have to love Gems TV. We're going to talk at you for 2 hours before actually selling you something. We're going to bore, oops I mean educate you about the mines were the raw material comes...

    Mary, you've been left your father's 3 houses and £500,000. Tom, you've been left your fathers holiday home in Spain and the investment portfolio. Lucy, you've been left your father's vintage car collection and £100,000. Bob, you've been left your father's extensive Swan & Edgar, Morphic and...

    I know we've said it numerous times, it's the fact the numbers don't align that would bug me. Maybe a nice watch to buy for a child (gimmicky) however that's about it. If the drums turned and aligned with precision then it might be a more tempting proposition, although not for me, maybe when I...

    Agreed. Ties in with the tv prog I watched a few years back re furniture retail. Was very interesting believe it or not. It was mentioned on the prog how, in many maybe even most cases, the starting price for furniture has no bearing on reality as customers are always looking for a bargain...

    I'd just switched my PC off but felt obliged to switch it back on to type this! Mike M selling Morphic watches with the female watch expert, can never remember her name. They're selling the drum, barrel whatever you want to call it watch. She's saying how, in all her years in the industry...

    Another thing that gets my goat is the Elizabeth Grant shows. 'This collection would cost you £280 if you bought the items separately. We're selling it to you for £39.99.' Aye, whatever you say. I'm sure there are lots of people around the world buying the individual items for prices like...

    Remember when they used to use that old, very dirty, scraggy sprung mattress as the sprung alternative. They had the audacity to tell us 'and this is a good quality relatively new mattress.' Yeah, run over by a steamroller a few times by the look and condition of it!

    As Peter S said a couple of weeks back 'we're on the home of all the big names, Ant & Dec, Coronation Street, The Cube' ... yeah ... IW aligns perfectly with all those big well known names that are ACTUALLY ON THE CHANNEL AT PRIME TIME!!! Not the early hours where your audience comprises...

    You mean the way she talks all the time? Does my nut, the constant 'having a moment' tone, YUCK! Maybe attractive when younger ... :(

    Whilst the returns policy at IW is good for things like mattresses (compared to a standard store) what lets them down is choice. Yes they do a few different mattresses, however most stores and other online retailers do many more. And whilst you might only have a few mins to lie on them in a...

    Trying to get sales through fear, lowest of the low tactics. All done with faux sincerity.

    I've always had Android but tbh I'm not heavily into my phones, so it does what I need it to. I liken it (the Android vs iPhone debate) a bit to the Playstation vs xBox debate, can go on and on with no clear winner :)

    Random musings and general banter.

    Had to chuckle the other night when they were selling an Android phone. Peter S was bellowing at (Grant?) that he had a friend who recently bought a £1200 phone (I'm assuming he meant an iPhone) and that next time the friend had said they would seriously consider Android as it's so good...
