Why Your TV’s Brand is Sometimes Misleading

For many of you, there’s a good feeling in choosing a familiar brand. But before you consider buying a new TV it’s worth divulging an open industry secret: even if a TV carries a brand name you recognise, that model might have a very remote relationship – legally and geographically — to the company that built the brand and its reputation over many years.

Branding makes all the difference. A professional appearance and carefully strategised branding will help the company build trust with consumers and potential ones. Relatedly, it is also vital for increasing value when trying to generate future revenue, and a strongly established brand can increase a business’ value – think of the simple black cotton T-shirt: one in a supermarket for £5, the other with the same or similar materials for £55, their difference largely because of a logo.

Appliance Cover; The Finer Details

We often take our appliances for granted, until — once we’ve been dropped back into 19th century, forced to scrub clothing by hand we can’t get our white goods repaired fast enough.

A standard home contents insurance policy will cover your appliances if they are damaged or destroyed in a fire, storm, flood, other natural disaster or if they’re stolen. But it won’t cover these kitchen essentials if they break down due to age, wear and tear or are accidentally damaged.

Appliance insurance policies can cover these eventualities, compensating you for the repair or replacement of appliances, including ovens, hobs, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, and more.

All insurance policies have exclusions or events they just will not cover. Typical exclusions on appliance insurance policies include: Continue reading “Appliance Cover; The Finer Details”

Internet of Things: Security Issues with Smart TVs, Who is Responsible between users and Manufacturers?

In a world environmental consciousness has increased due to climate change and global, eco-friendly products are being rendered alternatives. This fuss has even gotten into the way of Televisions.
