Only use Royal Mail for the smallest and cheapest contents. Their large parcel rates are a joke and most importantly their 'compensation' scheme is an absolute con. The site is a joke - Reference numbers don't work, reCaptcha's don't work (work on every other site I use) meaning it is almost impossible to make a claim. Also be aware that if you are an online seller they DO NOT compensate the value of the item you sold only WHAT IT COST YOU (and you need proof of buying it) - so those antiques you inherited with no receipt are WORTHLESS according to these people. This organisation deserves no sympathy and at the moment I would happily see them go bankrupt.


This is a review for the app as much as anything - the site just sells rubbish with a logo for a barely working app on it - crashes constantly, can't remove photos and most importantly no direct way to remove an account so god knows what happens to your data. Just cos people are stoners doesn't mean they have to accept this lazy garbage.


This is a great little site that I'm suprised is not more popular. It basically gathers all the news for all over the web and presents it in a simple graphical way using just boxes. Different subjects (world news, entertainment, science etc) are group by colour with items varying in size depending on how well read and popular they are - the bigger the box the bigger then news. You can also select your location so that the news is localised (to some degree).
It does occaionally go down for maintanance and can be a little slow to load but thats not suprising considering all that fishing it doin! Also the smallest items shown need to have the mouse moved over them to read and it includes items from paid news services which can be frustrating if you just want to read one item.
Overall though this is a cool little site - so much so that it has been my home page for some time now!


The site is basic and straight forward but this is the best place to buy guitar strings (especially for those based in the UK) on the net. Great prices and service - I always come back to these guys!


Totally slow and unresponsive, riddled with scripts that don't work and make the site unusable. Hilarious for a tech site really...
