Happy New Year everyone! As the weariness of our weary heads wear off, I thought it would be a good time to reminisce about the year just past. Here’s my round-up of 2015’s hottest conversations.
Strangely, I used to loved going to our NHS dentist as a child. Maybe it was the free lolly they gave you (not something you can imagine dentists encouraging these days). Still, at least I was able to visit an NHS dentist.
It’s clear washing machines – and perhaps some other products – aren’t lasting as long as you expect, but why is this? And is the situation any worse than it used to be?
Music in shops is a pet hate for many Which? Convo readers – judging by the vast majority of the 1,500 comments we’ve had on the subject. But what about music in restaurants?
You were keen to kick into Sky and Virgin Media’s plans to increase prices for sports packages from June 1. It’s clear many of you aren’t happy to pay more for sports packages you already think cost too much.
We asked you if ticket prices have affected how often you go to see films. Plenty of you said they have, hardly surprising when some cinemas charge up to £15 a ticket – and that’s before popcorn and refreshments.
You might remember our debate about smaller creme egg packs. Well, there’s more. Not only have we uncovered a host of other everyday shrinking products, the sun’s at it too…
There are too many gripes to mention from our last supermarket debate, so I’ve summed comments on the three that just keep coming up – self-service check-outs, multi-buys and under-stocked shelves.
BT recently announced its intention to buy mobile provider EE for £12.5bn, and there are rumours of Three buying O2. What followed was an intense debate about mergers.
Last week we asked you for your thoughts on having a monthly tariff for your printing. While most of you were against it, could it help us be more eco-friendly?
It’s Which? Convo’s fifth Christmas! For some reason that makes me think of the joy of belting out ‘five gold rings!’ at the top of my lungs. Anyway, let’s get cracking with my look back at the past year.
Our debate on money-saving dishwasher tips took an interesting turn. Rather than dishwasher detergent tips, your top tip was to ditch the dishwasher altogether. Can you really get away without one?
Last week we asked you whether you use an electric or manual toothbrush. As the referee of that debate, I have to award team electric the winners. But it was a valiant effort by the manual underdogs.
Our recent discussion about the investigation into the ‘Big Four’ banks prompted a plentiful debate. In fact you’ve shared so many great comments, we’re still working our way through them.
