    The Apprentice - The products after the show...

    Watched the Apprentice last night and me and the missus were wondering. After the show/series has ended, do the team(s) products actually go into production for the companies that placed orders for them?

    Asda ordered 800,000 units and I'd be interested to see if they actually appear on the shelves.

    They did in Milton Keynes and a few of the larger stores.

    Someone i worked with was on it a few years ago. Some stuff they have made has gone into production.

    would the ideas and products belong to the teams involved or the bbc or alan sugars company?
    as i'd assume the teams come under alan sugars remit as they are "working for him" but he is then contracted to the BBC so would they have a claim to it?

    thing is those weren't actually created by the contestants, they were only sold by them, i'd seen the spiderpodium thing on firebox a while back, sort of like the gorillapod for cameras

    I've just bought a Spiderpodium. I'm really impressed. It's so versatile.

    I have a problem when using my HTC Desire on SatNav where the phone gets hot. I can now hang it safely in front of a vent. It also works as a desktop cradle.
