5.0 out of 5 stars world and rock influences into something that sounds better than it seems when written down, 26 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Percy Plant showing that, whilst 'we' may want it, a Led Zep nostalgia fest is not in his sights anytime soon.
Some cracking songs that meld trance, blues, world and rock influences into something that sounds better than it seems when written down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good case, small aperture for headphones may cause problems for some users, 6 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality case. This is not really red colour though, more a near fluorescent Orange; you will not misplace your phone again!
Pros for me - the Moment lenses fit with this case
Cons - the 3.5mm cut out is a tad small and ended up buying an extension cable to allow my headphones to fit :( Also, the back case back does show marks more than I had hoped.

All in all though, very pleased with the design and protection the Nexus 5 now has.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 21 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As others have said, it does what you expect.
I suspect, like mine, later smartphones may struggle with receiving a full charge but it's a handy thing to have for when you inevitably run out of juice after a day of watching YouTube.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin!, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Similar principle to a French press/cafetiere but much less messy.
Judging by YouTube videos on the best way to use the Aerobie...this could get very nerdy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Phew! At times a painful read but worth the effort, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There but by the grace of god... Having had the Yellow Fever jab when I headed to Kilimanjaro in January of 2013 it was disconcerting to find out how that simple trip to the doctor could have such a devastating effect on Malcolm and his family.

A well written, sometimes bleak, sometimes uplifting but shot through with humour this is the story of a man and his family taken to the depths of despair after a (more than) severe reaction to a medicine design to help.

The fact that Malcolm has now been able to write this book is testament to his perseverance under the most trying of circumstances. I hope that he continues to improve and gets back his journalistic mojo!

5.0 out of 5 stars At last Bill Nelson in concert on DVD, 6 Aug 2011
It's taken a long time but at last we can see Bill Nelson playing sublime guitar on DVD.
From what Bill has blogged, the event cost him money to put on and provide a decent sound quality for the DVD but for us the viewer it's worth it.
A combination of solo material and with a band put together for the session, you get a smattering of songs from his lengthy back catalogue.
As Bill states in the interview, included as an extra, he prefers the studio to live performance and hasn't played many of the songs since they were written so this is a rare opportunity to see one of the most underrated guitar players live.
For me the highlights are For Stuart, October Man and (my favourite 3 minute pop song) Maid In Heaven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, to the point with excellent follow up activities, 15 July 2011
A well researched and informative guide to business networking. Covering both face to face and "online" networking, this really is a comprehensive step by step guide to becoming a networking ninja.
As someone who shies away from networking and used to think Linkedin was Facebook for managers, Heather's guide has helped me get my head around how important networking can be to building relationships and manage business contacts for a positive result.
Each chapter builds upon the previous one to arm you with tools and techniques to develop strong networking skills. Insightful case studies and comment from other networkers help justify the suggested actions you can take.
I'm off to review my online presences in the light of what I've learnt from the book as well as actually looking forward to opportunities to network at an MBA event in early September - no hiding behind the coffee urn from now on for me!
