We’re quite giddy about Google TV and the possibilities of bundling together digital media, on-demand and rental television with the web and apps. For the first time in a long time, it looks like Google are creating something sexy, something consumers would want in their home – which is more than can be said for the Google TV controller revealed by Sony in readiness for the launch.

Just look at it. Could this piece of plastic be anymore a) complicated, or b) ugly?

April 8th, 2010 2 Comments By Andy Dawson

hukd logob1 HotUKDeals Of The Day   Thursday 8th AprilBargains, bargains, bargains! There haven’t been very many of them around today but we’ve managed to cobble together a handful for your perusal here and now.

There’ll be more along soon at HotUKDeals – trust us, we’re doctors. Doctors of deals.

651722 HotUKDeals Of The Day   Thursday 8th AprilWhat would you say if you shoved 20 metres of Ethernet LAN cabling in your face? You’d say “thanks for the 20 metres of Ethernet LAN cabling that you’ve just shoved in my face. I might use it for my PC, or PS3 or my Xbox 360, or I might just see how many times it’ll wrap around that tree over there before it’s all gone.”

And what would you say if we told you that all we wanted from you in return would be £3.49? You’d say “Wow – that’s amazing. Here’s the cash, now why don’t you shove that 20 metres of Ethernet LAN cabling in my face all over again?” You sick freak.

652084 HotUKDeals Of The Day   Thursday 8th AprilNext up comes a box. A magical box. For just £8.85 delivered. You’re probably wondering what might be in that box, given that it’s so cheap. You probably think that it’ll have some duck feathers in it or some misshapen pieces of plastic or maybe a fox puppet. No, it’s even better than that. Find out more in the next paragraph.

Hi there, thanks for joining us for the next paragraph, where we reveal what you’ll get in your £8.85 box. It’s actually the first three Indiana Jones movies, with an additional fourth disc with some extra stuff. Crucially, it doesn’t include the recent, not-all-that-good fourth Indiana Jones movie. Phew, eh readers?

651997 HotUKDeals Of The Day   Thursday 8th AprilFinally today, we want to share a little secret with you. In truth though, we don’t. Bollocks to you all. Who do you think you are, turning up here on the internet expecting us to reveal sensitive and potentially reputation-damaging about Paul Smith’s mangina. Not that he’s got one.

No, you’ll have to make do with finding out more about the Logitech Harmony 555 universal remote control, which you can get at the moment for a piffling £39.80 delivered. Now be off with you – there’s no one with a mangina HERE!

HotUKDeals Of The Day – Thursday 26th November

hukd logob1 HotUKDeals Of The Day   Thursday 26th NovemberWhat’s that you say? You want a cheap lunch, a universal remote control and a box of beer and you want it now? Well screw you – we’re not your personal shoppers.

But we can show how to get all that stuff yourself, with the help of HotUKDeals. So stop bloody crying.

hotdogman HotUKDeals Of The Day   Thursday 26th NovemberIf you’re on the lookout for lunch (and who among us can honestly say that they aren’t?), what can you reasonably expect to get for 99p out there in The Real World? A Mars bar and a brisk kick in the fanny, that’s what.

No longer. We’ve tracked down a sandwich/water/crisps three-way that will earn you a single penny in cashback for your meagre outlay of one shiny poundular coin. Informed comments over at HUKD include: “the water is horrible.” Where do we queue?

538848 HotUKDeals Of The Day   Thursday 26th NovemberJust what has modern life really given us, eh? Seasonal Affective Disorder, Twitter and too many remote controls in our living rooms. And that’s pretty much it. Not what we hoped would happen is it? At least we can rectify one of those problems for you here and now.

What would you say to a Logitech Harmony 515 universal remote control that will take on the roles of five other remote controls, and has garnered generally positive reviews from everyone who has used it – and all for £27.99? You’d say ‘Hello remote control!’ Where do we queue?

538493 HotUKDeals Of The Day   Thursday 26th NovemberFinally today, a booze offer. Because as we never tire of reminding you, it’s almost Christmas and you need to stock up on your festive booze stash. Plus, because it’s so cheap, you don’t feel guilty about drinking it all early, because you know we’ll throw another deal at you a few days later. Glug!

Today’s offer is a delightful little cardboard box filled with 18 bottles, each one containing exactly 275ml of Carlsberg Export. It was £14.98 but right now it’s only £6.99. Put it somewhere safe for Christmas – wouldn’t want you drinking it all bef… oh, you’ve gone.

hukd logob1 HotUKDeals Of The Day   Tuesday 21st OctoberTime for our daily round-up of some of the finest bargain-flavoured stuff as recommended by the vigilant geniuses at HotUKDeals.


172727 300x193 HotUKDeals Of The Day   Tuesday 21st OctoberHow long since you treated yourself to a new telly? If it’s longer than a year then you must surely be feeling the itch for a new one. Surely? Well, you could do a lot worse than this 42” Panasonic plasma, available for just £684.99

In terms of HUKD heat ratings, it’s a winner. Whether it truly is a bargain, or in fact a great telly, is totally open to interpretation. It’s all abstract, but there’s some smashing debate over its merits going on at HUKD. Insults fly and someone gets called a ‘tool.’ Seriously, have a look – you’ll love it.
