.. very useful product. Simply place it on or close to a power cable and a clear sound and light signal tells you it's live. Sorted!

Great value for a big can of cleaner instead of the small ones that just run out in no time. Does a great job of cleaning glasses and lenses. Only negative is the very strong smell of furniture polish. Strange experience to be walking around with a strong polish scent coming from your glasses!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin....., 14 April 2012

In this very readable book the author provides some very practical advice for the simple act of running faster. The text reveals some simple but thought-provoking points on improving running speed (for example speed is driven by leg cadence and leg cadence is driven by the arms, how to get speed work into your schedule) as well as best preparation for improving race-day performance.

The author draws heavily on his personal experience as a top level runner in what many consider to be the golden age of British middle distance running regularly rubbing shoulders with the likes of Ovett, Coe, Bedford and Cram.

The book is certainly a comprehensive running guide but also part autobiography in which the author looks at several of the key races in his career and analyses what caused success and, in some cases, failure in those races. He then brings those factors back into the advice being given those who aspire to run faster and be more competitive in their own racing.

This book is a welcome break from the plethora of run coaching books which are focused on hours of obsessive slow base-level running and a deep emphasis on heart-rate analysis, VO2 max, lactate threshold etc. Whilst there is certainly huge merit in such an approach to athletic performance The Art of Running Faster takes a fascinating look at the basics of running and advises some simple, practical and functional approaches to getting those legs going faster and longer and watching those PB's fall!

An immensely enjoyable read that will get you thinking about your running from a whole new perspective.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and nowhere to go for help!, 24 Nov 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought one of these in order to watch my Sky box whilst on business trips around the globe. Works well whilst my laptop is connected to my home network but no access to my sky box when I am away from home. Have tried the Sling website (heavily focussed on selling upgraded devices, posted messages on there etc) and got no help whatsoever there other than the ususal "is it plugged in". Worthless to me if it doesn't work away from home - which it doesn't! Ho Hum!! Still waiting...........
