Problem is they are tesing in an empty basketball court, sitting on the ground.
What's the point?

You wouldn't watch Top Gear for advice about your next car purchase. Same with Gadget Show. Light entertainment froth.

I fail to see why testing in a basketball court is better for ratings than testing in a lounge or demo room . They could even throw in a few facts about basic acoustics.Although i can sense people switching off at that
The difference between The Gadget Show and Top Gear is that The Gadget Show is testing kit that 90% of it's viewers can actually afford so they should at least try to conduct a half decent test.
They also drank water from a toilet.Says it all
I thought the best test was when they were trying to fry an egg on the torches they just tested, but they didn't say what was the best torch at frying eggs, must say i was a bit dissapointed by that.

God help channel 5's complaints department if it only gets 3Gs
Didn't some magazine test mobile phones by how well they performed when you drop them?
I have given up on this programme. So repetitive.
