5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Marie Griffiths - the anti-Dixons consumer champion - has finally got her telly back.

Almost three months after it was taken away to be fixed (it went titsup before Christmas just days after she'd bought it) Dixons finally, finally returned it.

Here's Marie's entry in her blog on Friday: "Hey guess what! I just received my TV back!! Woo hoo!!

"Still, the issue still remains, where was my TV for the 2.5 months that DSG had it? Why did it take so long for them to return it to me? Why did I have to go to such extraordinary lengths to get it returned?

"Not good enough," she wrote.

Dixons is still investigating the cock-up. No doubt the issue of compensation will also be something that needs to be ironed out.

In the meantime, fingers crossed the TV doesn't go titsup again. ®
