The worst alarm radio I ever owned was a Pure model, Tempus? When I set it to come on at the start of the Today programme, at 6am, I expected it to switch on at 6am. Pure boasted about the time keeping of their radios, locked as they were to the time signal of FM broadcasts. What they neglected to mention was that
1 The time signal was only acquired when the radio came on.
2 There was no attempt to acquire the time maybe 15 minutes before the alarm time.
3 The old crock of a digital clock inside the radios was capable of losing or gaining up to 3 minutes in a day.
The result was that the main items of news had passed by the time the radio came on, else I had to set the alarm early and suffer whatever preceded the Today programme for a few minutes.
My exchange with Pure was lengthy and heated, starting amicably but ending in vitriol. They eventually admitted that the radios were deficient, but said they had no intention of fixing them, ever, even though they were new and still being sold.
My revenge was to post the entire exchange as a comment to my review, which got high ranking on Amazon. Someone else commented that he looked inside his and had never seen such bad workmanship nor so many dry solder joints before.
The moral? Despite a dishonest campaign, Brexit won, and despite an execrable campaign, Trump won, and Pure still sell loads of junk, and despite so many missed or late bug fixes Humax sell loads of boxes. Go figure!
