5.0 out of 5 stars Good lighter, good price, 20 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zippo Cigarette Lighter (Sports)
A decent little lighter, I lost my old zippo and the 2 days I was without it were pure hell.

I've checked for any signs that it's a forgery, just in case, and I can confirm that I'm pretty sure it's a GENUINE zippo lighter. Just in case you were wondering how to check for a forged Zippo I'll post a few simple points:

1. Dull flat click. When you open and shut your Zippo it should have a nice echoey ping.
2. Brass pins. A genuine Zippo will not have brass pins through the thumbwheel and the lock connecting the insert to the case.
3. Obviously the price, this is pretty much the RRP for a cheap ZIppo. Fakes will be cheaper.

You can also check when your Zippo was made by looking on the bottom of the case. The letter on the left will indicate the month (A is Jan, B is Feb etc.) And then the year is on the right. Mine is June 08, bit old for a new item but I guess it doesn't really make a difference.
The month and date will also be on the insert (don't worry if the date on the insert doesn't match the date on the bottom, they are often made at different times).

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money, 3 Sep 2009
Snow Leopard is an evolutionary release that builds upon Leopard. It incorporates a lot of new technologies under the hood that allow Mac OS X to take advantage of GPGPU (using the graphics processor in everyday applications), and tools such as GCD (Grand Central Dispatch) that allow developers to take advantage of the multiple cores found in modern Mac systems. The kernel and all standard applications within OS X have also been recompiled as 64 bit on Macs that support it, so that they can perform more efficiently and take advantage of massive amounts of RAM.

It also features a lot of speed improvements (especially boot up and shutdown, install time, as well as general system speed). There aren't a lot of new end user features (QuickTime X is all I can think of), but Apple has taken a lot of time to refine the current features, productivity enhancements to the Dock (Dock Expose) and the Finder, and hundreds of small tweaks across the system that make little difference by themselves, but when grouped together make OS X that more enjoyable to use.

And at £23 I can think of no reason not to buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 18 April 2009
A good return for Dt. Inspector Frost. 3 good storylines, all enjoyable. There will be 2 more episodes broadcast sometime this year, and then unfortunately Frost is hanging up his hat for good, a shame, but no point in letting it drag on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure drivel, 29 Dec 2008
This review is from: My Booky Wook (Paperback)
Yet again another attempt of a painfully poor, talentless Z list celebrity to cash in. Rather than create sympathy, it made me loathe this imbecile even more.
