It didn't really have potential. It's only as secure as the sunbed is strong, and most sunbeds I've ever seen could easily be broken, then you could just take the safe.

What he should have invented was a sunbed with a built in safe. Then a thief wouldn't know what to target.

You should take that idea to Dragons' Den.

Built into sunbeds. Or, because it looked waterproof, be able to strap it to yourself while in the water. Dunno, think he was on to something with it and if they looked into ways of developing it instead of just having a go at the guy it could be a decent product.

Built in to sunbeds would be a better product, but then you have to try and get a hotel to upgrade their entire suite of sunbeds which drastically reduces you market. As a standalone product that you attach to an existing sunbed it's stupid because firstly it highlights to everyone that you have valuables, because presumably you've paid to rent one of these boxes. Secondly it's not even secure because anyone could just break the sunbed and take the safe. There are already loads of waterproof products that you can strap to yourself to keep your valuables safe while you're swimming.

A better product, that doesn't draw attention to itself:

I watched last week's episode earlier today. Duncan skipping and mentioning how he plays the various Angry Birds games were particular highlights. :lol:

No, it's been moved to tomorrow evening. Same time and channel, mind.

Why are they dicking about with the broadcast day? Now it clashes with Doc Martin, FFS.

Wasn't this week's episode the last of the series?
