The Good, the Cheap and the Dirty

We've all had the problem of finding just the right present for that special friend's birthday and with the new techie age having dawned, we're encouraged to do all our shopping online. Fair enough, there is a lot of choice out there, but tracking down the right product at the right price is nigh on impossible.
It is due to this fact that we've compiled a list of our favourite cyber-shops, which, although not exhaustive, gives a wide scope for finding that particular item.
We've decided to give the list its peculiar name for reasons that will become obvious. It includes all that you would expect from us, the serious and the bizarre, the useful and the senseless, the priceless and the giveaway.
But most of all, it includes "the Good, the Cheap and the Dirty".

 

Get a first opinion before you buy

Before you buy anything online, there are two places you MUST check out. The first is Ciao.com, the second, Pricerunner.com.

Ciao has honest opinions on loads of products, so you can check what other people think about it before you buy. If you register as a reviewer they'll even pay you for your opinions and each time someone reads your opinion. And they allow freedom of opinion, so don't worry about slagging off things you don't like. It's a win-win situation.
Pricerunner is a site that tells you the best price for goods before you buy them. Say for instance you want to buy a CD player. You can find out the specifications of the different models, where you can get them and, most importantly, how much each site charges. Even if you don't want to buy online, it's a good resource for find the best product for you.
Using these two sites in tandem, you should never make a bad purchase again.

Gadgets, Inc.

Like a lot of people, I've always fancied myself as a spy, even to the point of nearly getting arrested for 'stalking' someone (I was doing undercover surveillance, m'lord). And IWantOneOfThose.com is my kind of shop, as GQ said, it's "like having Q's laboratory in your living room". But even if you're not the Modesty Blaise type, you'll be glad to know that they also have lifestyle and homeware - rubber band gun vs toast rack, Walkie Talkie vs Sun Lounger, Flying Lessons vs CD Rack. The last thing I'll say is make sure you have your credit card details handy, you'll need them.

Tom Cruise's y-fronts

Also fitting into the 'different' category is asSeenonScreen.com, who specialise in designer items from your favourite film or television show. From Brad Pitt's "Fight Club" sunglasses and clothes to the "Big Brother" cow chair, there's something to suit everyone's tastes and pockets. The stuff is absolutely amazing. Imagine owning Samuel L. Jackson's "Shaft" hat, or Marilyn Monroe's "Seven Year Itch" white dress (you know the one). I would say that this shop is unbeatable. I don't know of any other site like it.
