One question we’re often asked, via our customer comments, is how we make our videos. Specifically, what technology we use to film, edit, export and upload them. Mostly people are wanting to create something similar for themselves, and looking for advice about buying cameras or editing software. Our intention always is to create in house, informative, helpful videos at the least expense. Thus far I think we have succeeded!

Alright folks the long weekend is finally upon us and for those of you working, well ain’t that a shame. For those fortunate to have the time off and are planning to attend one or more of the many brilliant festivals, Notting Hill Carnival, spend time with family and friends or all of the above, do enjoy yourself.
I blogged about this at about this time last year, but you know what? I really think this is a great idea from Electrolux. Their Design Lab competition is aimed at design students from around the world. They are ‘invited to present innovative ideas for household appliances of the future.’Read more
The manufacturer of Beko fridge freezers has issued a warning. In a very small number of incidents, the defrost timer on a certain production range of BEKO frost free refrigeration can fail and overheat. The models affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006. Beko will carry out a free in-home modification to the defrost timer if yours is affected.
My post the other day about the breadmaker got me thinking. Basically, while having the means to easily make your own bread must certainly be nice, a breadmaker is pretty much a luxury that it wouldn’t be too hard to live without. I mean, you could just buy a loaf of Kingsmill. Or if the urge to bake becomes too much, your regular oven is a perfectly acceptable substitute.
Love the lawnmower in this video. I’ve had a go on it, it has a throttle and propels itself, you pretty much just guide it. Great for medium sized gardens. The thing may look pretty gnarly (the cassette blade looks like it’d make a bit of a mess of your extremities), but simply put together and easily maintained.
Extended warranties offer poor value for money for most consumers. That was clear finding of a piece of research that we published earlier this year – The Billion Pound Waste of Money. We commissioned a detailed report and conducted an extensive survey into the extended warranty market to get a better understanding of what’s going on. We passed on our findings to the Office of Fair Trading and urged them to investigate.
As you’ve no doubt seen, we make videos so that the people we supply parts to have a helping hand when fitting them. Sometimes the people we supply parts to make the videos themselves. We like it when this happens.
