Funny Amazon Product Review for USB Cup Mug Warmer Coaster

Two engineers left this incredibly detailed one-star product review of a Mustard USB Cup Mug Warmer Coaster on Amazon. The product claims to keep tea warm, so the engineers put the claims to the test in a review called "Two engineers, one cup: a scientific investigation into Mustard’s 50ºC claim." Source: Amazon UK After receiving this item as a Christmas present, I immediately saw its potential for keeping my tea warm at my desk whilst I'm working in the electronics laboratory where beverages, hot or cold, are forbidden (for obvious reasons). Imagine my disappointment then when, on my first day back at work after the Christmas break, I made myself a nice cup of Earl Grey, went to the lab for a while, and then came back to find my tea cold. Certainly not the 50ºC at which this product claims to keep your tea. It was then that I decided to finally put my physics degree and electrical engineering PhD to good use by subjecting the Mustard Hot Cookie to a scientific investigation. Figure 1 shows my test set-up. A k-type temperature probe, connected to

4 Great Tips to Boost Your Amazon Seller Rating

While only Amazon itself can say with absolute certainty what the sure-fire way of winning a Buy Box is, we here at FeedbackExpress have a fair idea of what you need to do. One of the best actions you can take is maintaining a stellar Amazon Seller Rating, and it’s really a lot easier to accomplish than you think. 1. Why Amazon Seller Rating Matters So Much Amazon buyers don’t have the luxury of walking into your brick-and-mortar shop, asking you questions in real time, and examining products with their own hands. They have to rely on the judgements of others to feel reassured they’re making the right choice, and having a high seller rating is one of the best ways to build trust. Also, Amazon takes it very seriously when deciding who to award a Buy Box to. So what can you do to score as close to 100 as possible? 2. Do as You Say and Describe I love books, but I once decided to take a chance on a Kindle. I didn’t need anything fancy, just a tablet-y thing that showed the
