The Convo top ten – the best of the year

As it's the end of the year, and a time to reflect, we're bringing you a special edition this week with ten of our best-ever Conversations. If you missed them first time around, here's your excuse to get involved now! (this year's top ten...)

Make sure you stick to your financial resolutions

The dawn of 2011 will see millions of people promise themselves that they’ll spend less, save more and ditch their Christmas debt mountains. But what are the chances we’ll stick to these New Year’s resolutions? (more about financial resolutions...)

Our worst cars of 2010

As we near 2011, the Which? Car team has been reflecting on the last 12 months, thinking about the cars that left us less-than-impressed in 2010. Here's what we think – do you agree or do you have another contender? (our worst cars...)

The top technology successes of 2010

As we come to the end of 2010, it's time to reminisce over the best technology from the year that was. The Which? Tech team has joined us to run down their technology highlights, featuring the iPad and Xbox Kinect. (Which? Tech's 2010 successes...)

Are massive mark-ups on used video games fair?

If you've ever tried to sell on a video game to a high street store, you may have been disappointed by the price offered. Our recent investigation backs-up that feeling, adding huge used game mark-ups to the equation. (more about video game mark-ups...)

What does 2011 have in store for consumers?

Hands up if you've made a New Year's resolution yet? We all have our own goals and aspirations, but research into consumer trends for the year ahead suggests we have more in common than you might imagine. (more about 2011's consumer trends...)

The top technology disappointments of 2010

We've had a cracker of a year for tech, but there's also been some duds and disappointments dampening 2010's technology darlings. The Which? Tech team has decided to run down their biggest disappointments of 2010. (Which? Tech's 2010 disappointments...)

You say: cheques should be here to stay

When we started a Conversation asking, 'Do you want to save the cheque?' you spoke up in great numbers. But we weren't prepared for such a resounding response. The cheque, most of you agree, should stay. (more about your views on cheques...)

What will you be recycling this Christmas?

The presents have been opened, the crackers pulled and the champagne cork popped. But how will you be tackling the post-Christmas clean-up – by binning everything, or by recycling it? (more about Christmas recycling...)

Nothing to open on digital Christmas

Did you have fewer Christmas presents under your tree this year? It seemed that way in the Stevens’ household. Not because we’ve all turned a bit Ebenezer Scrooge, more that this year was an eChristmas. (more about digital Christmas...)

Why only eat turkeys at Christmas?

Ah, the good old Christmas turkey. Just one could feed an army. But with many of us overcooking them into frazzled dry hunks of flesh today, why don't more of us banish the turkey and tuck into something else? (more about the Christmas turkey...)

How do you think we should test products?

From fake bums to bird poo, we use some funny testing methods here at Which? To mark our new ad campaign, we're rounding up some of the unexpected tests we use – and challenging you to think of new ones. (more about how we test products...)

The Convo top ten – the twelve days of Christmas

There's not much longer to wait before it's Christmas morning, but prior to the present opening rush, why not wrap up warm and get cosy with this week's top Which? Conversations and comments? And Merry Christmas! (this week's top ten...)

Christmas stay-at-homers still risk being burgled

Forget Father Christmas shimmying down your chimney; it’s burglars you may have to contend with this festive season. And it's not just a problem for people leaving homes empty. (more about Christmas burglaries...)
