EShop
Eshop is a Joomla MVC compliant component which is an ideal solution for (responsive design) ecommerce within Joomla. The standard features are in line with what you would expect in wanting to create a functional store to sell online. Support for multiple currencies, countries and unlimited products, coupons, vouchers etc etc.
Comes with sample data to give you an idea of the settings. Standard plugins of paypal and flat or free shipping and more. For anybody experienced in Joomla software, the component files are easy editable to customise the core files to change the functionality to your requirements. Besides that there is an adequate Manual to read for usage settings, support forum and support ticket system where the developers respond within a couple of days at most. The developers are open to suggestions and (unlike other template and software companies) will offer custom programming if necessary to your tailored requirements.
If youre frustrated with other popular free ecommerce cart such as bug ridden Virtuemart, then this is the way forward.
The only drawback is it lacks some of the third party plugin-ins that are common with free but incomplete software like Virtuemart. However, the developer is open to create bespoke functionality for you and is building a range of extra modules as they progress.
Joomla users should stop expecting Free software and start supporting developers like JomDonation who are making some really solid coded products.

MambWeather
Works straight out of the box and the set up is a breeze. Parameters are straightforward also. Big minus is the fact it needs to refresh the whole page on selecting a location forecast. No AJAX here I`m afraid.
But if you want various locations you have to edit lots of METAR stations in the parameters.
No option to remove the drop down info box either just in case you want a basic listing of temp/location.

***That Refresh on choosing a new weather forecast is really annoying me already.

Thank you for you honesty.
The option to hide the drop down list is in the premium and business edition of the module. See the module's configuration options page at the project's website. For each station, you need to enter the station code, its description (what name is to be displayed), its time zone, sunrise and sunset times. In total five parameters that are all required for the proper functioning of the module.
