Vague ramblings

And another thing….

OK, so this isn’t exactly a small city post, but sometimes one needs to vent.

Tried buying a TV (or any other electrical item) lately?

I bought one not so long ago and found myself relying more on shop staff than I like to for advice. Try looking up reviews for consumer goods on Google. What you get are loads of links to other search engines and loads of links to people trying to flog you the kit.

But trying to find a proper, impartial, review site is a different matter. “What Hi fi” is pretty good, but I found it more by luck than judgement. Again, the corporate seems to win out over the individual.

Surely it’ not too much to ask that when you ask for reviews, you get review sites not selling sites. Is it?

And yes, I am aware of the irony of using blogger to make these observations.<included for historic accuracy!
