Dollar razors heading to the UK

Do you buy fancyish razor blades, and wonder why you're spending so much of your money on them? Largely, they're a rip-off, and that's something to do with so few companies producing them. It's almost as if there's an artificially inflated price thanks to a monopoly. Lawyers, you'll note we said 'almost like'. Well, some…

Warning over Tesco's super-hot chillis

Some people like pain. They actively seek it out. Their lives must be pretty safe to have to introduce actual danger into their routines. Some like pain 'in the evening', while some do martial arts.

Black Friday part two, from Amazon

While Black Friday seems to veer from 'carnage' to 'a bit of a damp squib', Amazon is undeterred, announcing the date of their second annual global shopping day.
