    Apparently lots of fakes around, would be careful where you buy (if online or second hand)

    It's worth shopping around and reading the small print on these type of insurance products. (Generally they are very profitable for the sellers...)

    Why is Administrator of Newbridge Credit Union paid so much?

    I'm wondering if the article was imprecise in the language used. There's a difference between "being paid an hourly rate" and "charging an hourly rate". The former suggests it's a full time salary he receives, the latter is what E&Y are getting for his "billable time". If it's a short term, part...

    Android tablet - good deal

    In general I believe the ipad battery life is better than android. I believe apple have tighter control over the components and SW running (remember the adobe flash debate!)

    Android tablet - good deal

    Check the bargain alerts thread on boards.ie if you're looking for a cheap tablet. http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=346 In general though, it's an older version of android, plus probably a cheaper resistive screen (since it doesn't say capacitive)

    Quality Bargain TVs in the sales

    I have an older model panasonic plasma, 3.5 yrs, very happy with it. I (still) prefer plasma to lcd, but the led TVs look good too. I think plasma is heaviest on electricity, but probably only a factor if you're a heavy user. I think 3D is a fad, so personally wouldn't pay any more for this...

    Would I get away with an indoor aeriel?.

    I'm experimenting with saorview at the moment also. Indoor/outdoor aerial will depend on your location, aerial and box/tv. Unfortunately no way to know if an indoor aerial will work until you try (& some will give different results). You can also get "saorview combo receivers" which give the...

    Tracker Mortgages - Handcuffs to trading up

    One word that doesn't feature, "ladder". The notion of a property ladder was one of the great mis-sold myths during the boom.

    Where is the best place to store digital photos?

    I use pix.ie for photos. The monthly limit is 500MB & they keep photos in the original format. I also use mozy.ie to back up my laptop (selected folders) online. I have an external hard-drive, but I'm just not disciplined enough to use it regularly

    Why Ipad???

    Not an owner of any tablet, nor an expert, but I would focus more on applications rather than specs. The reason an ipad would be the first choice over another tablet is the range of apps on the apple appstore. Android market does have alot of apps also, but very few are tablet...

    Staff Member with European Arrest Warrant

    My first reaction is that it has to be a wind-up? Why would a detective give you a 'heads up'?
