5.0 out of 5 stars Diabolically witty, 29 Feb. 2012
This famous book, though not to everyone's tastes and certainly not PC, is a gem. Written over 100 years ago, it is a compilation of definitions which originally appeared in an American newspaper. Some are long-winded or now obscure, others will offend, but many are wonderfully funny. A cabbage, for example, is defined as' a familiar kitchen-garden vegetable about as large and as wise as a man's head'. This is a must buy for the broad-minded and at a ridiculously low price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Let down by software, 10 Feb. 2011
I purchased this wireless adapter to work with an old Apple Mac and the seller delivered quickly. The product arrived in excellent condition and is small and discrete.
When running the signal appeared to be strong. However, the accompanying software is awful.
Astonishingly, the device requires that the user inputs the password for each session online. As the password is not remembered this means having to re-type the password for each new session on the internet. And I do mean re-type. The software refuses to allow the password to be copy and pasted into the application.
With a very strong password this is just not practical. It didn't help that the connection was frequently lost.
I contacted the software supplier but they have yet to even acknowledge my email.
I decided against sending the product back because it was inexpensive and I am too busy to waste any more time on it.
My advice is - do not buy this.
