Blog BT Shop, on-line delays, poor customer service
Hits 16818 | Last Modified 2008-04-01I decided to buy an Asustek Eee Pc 7" 512MB Memory 4GB Flash Linux with a bonus I got from work at the end of last year.

One month later, I'm still waiting...

Blog Comet, the Sale of Goods Act, a Cooker, some frustration
Hits 25535 | Last Modified 2008-04-01We bought a cooker just over 12 months ago from Comet, a DeLongi, gas hob, 2 x electric ovens.

That time it was fixed for free, so what happens just after the magical 12 months expires?

Article Nokia N95 8GB - Contact names not showing
Hits 24818 | Last Modified 2008-04-01I searched for an answer for this for an age. When people call or text me, their names didn't show up, just their numbers, even though they were in my address book. Not all of them though - just some! Some people worked fine!

This is a record of my letter-writing campaign to them.
