Savoo loves all its merchants, so it's a shame we don't get to see all of them more often. But last week the team and I visited eBuyer in East Yorkshire. It's a long way to go from London but it was worth every hour on that train. eBuyer should be a case study on how to run an internet business. The team there are always open to ideas, they understand how people want to shop and they know what they want to buy. They understand online marketing, they understand that consumers want a great deal and, I am pleased to say, are doing really well.
Personally, I am a massive fan of eBuyer
and last week I put my money where my mouth is and bought my wife a
present she has been after for ages to help her with her design work
that she is doing.
As the colder weather begins to set in, more and more people are beginning to focus on what gifts and presents they will distribute to loved ones this year. Christmas can be an expensive season and, with the current state of finances showing little sign of improvement, households will want to find ways to give the perfect gift without spending a fortune.
Photographs and art work are perhaps some of the most versatile gifts
which can be given at this time of year. Not only are they personal but
they are also unisex, being just as suitable for men as they are for
women. Photographs, therefore, make the perfect gift for both friends
and family members so how can you save money on them?

Christmas and New Year
There's a fairly decent chance that you or someone you know may have accidentally stumbled upon a fake gadget at some point. iPods, computer software, mobile phones and mp3 players, among numerous others, have all been counterfeited at some point or another. But there is no way you could counterfeit an entire store, right? If you happen to find yourself in Kunming, China, you just might want to think twice about that.
blog recently broke news that, yes, there's an entire store in China
that's masquerading itself as a legitimate Apple Store. Taking a quick
glance, you could see how one might get away with it. Like real Apple
Stores, the fake one features the same clean white walls, wooden floors
and tables and even blue-shirted employees toting those familiar Apple
Store employee name tags. The aesthetics of it all seem to blend right

Technology and Gaming
Digital cameras and camera phones are commonplace in most homes, meaning the exciting days of taking your photograph films to be processed then showing friends and family are over. Unfortunately, this often results in the pictures just being saved to a computer and forgotten about - very few of us print the images out and put them in an album. Digital photograph frames are today's version of albums but they're even more convenient and social. Visitors to a home can relive and share memories, sometimes when they least expect it if a particular picture pops up in the slideshow whilst they are having a cup of tea and a chat. Many frames come with a remote control so they're also great for inviting loved ones round for a social screening of the Christmas or holiday snaps.
Digital photo frames have gone down in price over the past couple of years so they're a great Christmas gift for people of all ages. Different sizes and key features will suit various friends and members of your family so if you're not sure which digital photo frame to opt for, here are some tips to help you on your way.

Stuff We Like
If you, for whatever reason, never took the advice we dispensed several months ago about getting Steam, you may have just missed out on one of the best gaming sales of the year. As we noted, Valve, the company behind the Steam platform, is notorious for offering its customers unbeatable discounts almost year round, in addition to providing them with top quality games. However, around the holidays, Valve tends to go overboard with its deals, and this year was no exception.

Although the majority of the talk surrounding Apple as of late has been centred on the iPhone 4's various antenna issues, the company was, at least for a day, allowed a bit of reprieve from the public as they handed out free t-shirts to customers on August 7th. At the company's new flagship store in Covent Garden, London, thousands of people stood in queue to be among the select few who would receive a shirt commemorating the store's opening date and location.
While even the most ardent Apple supporters would admit that the free
shirts lack the flash of some of the company's more recent products
like the iPad and the aforementioned iPhone 4, many claimed that the
appeal of the shirts were due more to their limited numbers.
