It seem as if you have dropped a clangor here, most people like myself just wanted a written review and a quick link to the sites. What you seem to forget is that only 43.2% of the UK’s population live in cities where high speed broadband is readily available. I for example have not been able to get more than 1.5megs as an average for the last 4yrs and have lived in many different parts of the southwest. This means that while stream videos may seem a good idea sitting in your office using corporate band connection you are simply alienating a massive part of your prim view public. This for a T.V show is not a smart or wise idea. Maybe you should look into and investigate the slow broadband issue and as the UK gadget champions push the government and BT into releasing the exchanges for upgrades faster.

Completely agree with the comments here; love the Gadget Show and love this website but I've already seen the episode and don't really want to watch it again. I just wanted to be reminded of the links/products (and maybe prices, where to buy from etc where applicable). Also, as it's delivered via the Flash Player it doesn't even work on the most beloved gadget of all - the iPhone! Surely Jason would have something to say about this... :)

This website is very poor design (content good) - why do I have to watch the video to see the web pages... please can you list them I have to watch the video or keep on Sky+ and play/pause etc. Could you not show a synopisis from each show and suitable hyperlinks with info?

What's the name of the website where you can just enter the ingredients that you've got in your cupboards and it calculates food recipes for you?

carl harkness

Why don't you have a episode fact sheet detailing the info from it, this could be in addition to the video, as not everyone lives in cable or fibre optic areas and have good speeds. I think it's may be showing off too much, and the pop up adds are very annoying and should be removed.

LIST THE BLOODY WEBSITES! I can't believe they want me to watch the whole clip just to find the name of the recipe website. What a waste of time.

Thanks for the list of websites Tom B. It's a shame that Five don't consider the user/customer before the fancy graphics and bull.

I just watched this episode but it also showed either Jon Bentley or Jason Bradbury showing other useful websites, such as the one where you could dial alternative cheaper telephone numbers instead of the 0845 ones? Also another website that gave you a list of all the telephone menu number sequences to press for most major companies to put you str8 through to a human being?.. Anyone know if this clip has been uploaded as I cannot find it? Thanks.

I am also looking for the same details as Arimor with the telphone numbers and option sequences to get straight through to speak to people. Has anyone been able to find this yet? It would be so useful. Thanks

I can't play the video either - funnily enough it's fine for the 'sponsors messages' but have given up trying to get the cookery website info - what I really really wanted was just a list of the websites... my mobile broadband cannot cope with videos...ho hum

Convertit.com is a fantastic idea unfortunately it hasn't worked with any video I have tried including Mpeg, Avi, 3gp, Mov, Mp4. If anyone has another conversion site I would be very grateful.

I too thought this being a hyper-text web site that there would be hyper-text web links to the pages mentioned on the program!! if it helps anyone I think the two web sites that Jon talked about were http://gethuman.com/ giving the short cuts to humans on phones and http://www.saynoto0870.com/ for alternative phone numbers. If the presenters/producers read these they may get the hint that this sort of info would be good and do so in the future

Following my own investigation, millions of people in the world receive the <a href="http://goodfinance-blog.com/topics/personal-loans">personal loans</a> at different banks. So, there's a good possibility to find a consolidation loan in any country.

Check out www.formvote.com , it's awesome.

home loans

If you're in not good state and have got no cash to move out from that, you will need to receive the loans "goodfinance-blog.com". Just because it should aid you emphatically. I get college loan every single year and feel myself OK just because of it.
