1.0 out of 5 stars Have a look at their website first, 9 Dec 2013

Nick Woodbridge - See all my reviews
This review is from: Contour +2 HD Handsfree Action Camera (Electronics)
Contour have gone out of business and therefore there will be no updates for any if the software from now on, no warranty, no support, lack of parts if anything goes wrong, lack of mounts supply. . .

From contour.com:
Happy holidays to all and thank you for continuing to support CONTOUR. It has been a difficult time, as you may have read, but we are getting closer to being able to provide you with the support you deserve for the world's best sports camera! The shop will be open soon, so stay tuned for new announcements.

2.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining? Maybe. Inspiring? Not really., 25 Nov 2013
The first 1/3 of the book (up to the Ironman) was entertaining and easy to read, the rest was a chore with dull description of his races, preparations and other benign things of ordinary life... Got really tired of short descriptive sentences, not a literature masterpiece that some reviews claim it to be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Completely Pointless - Lane Assist with Garmin PhotoReal(tm) junction view, 20 Aug 2013
Completely Pointless - Lane Assist with Garmin PhotoReal(tm) junction view, all junctions look pretty much the same except the blue traffic signs that you can't read unless the unit is under your nose. Also, most pictures look different to what's on the screen after you travelled for a few hundred meters.
Wish they had an overview map instead of this rubbish.
Battery life is very very poor.
Prepare to travel tiny one lane country lanes that are being chosen for some strange reason if you follow this satnav blindly.

5.0 out of 5 stars One spoon added to hemp shake makes wonders, 1 July 2013
I used it as suggested by someone on good hemp powder review (1 to 3 spoons of hemp) and it's magic, it helps to improve taste and mixes well.
It is also easier on the stomach than hemp protein on it's own.

2.0 out of 5 stars One foot of thread to screw each time you want to change weight, 20 May 2013
This review is from: York Spinlock Bar (Sports)
I'm not sure this bar can hold a foot worth of weights at each end, meaning you have to spin the lock bracket for a whole foot when you want to change the weight. Why? Just to annoy anyone using it?
It comes wrapped in plastic, but just try to imagine taking it back to collect+ shop :-)

1.0 out of 5 stars Put together by someone who never wore a belt!, 17 May 2013
This review is from: York Leather Belt (Sports)
As the other review said the prongs on the buckle had been put on the wrong way round. Making it impossible to buckle.
Very poor shape design at the front with buckle bulging out.
It's very cheap and not good value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Windows XP is more usable than this, 9 April 2013
If you ever used Mac OS X, you would know how absolutely horrible it is to use Windows 7, 8, etc.
It is simply abhorrent and will drive you up the wall with constant annoyances that make your life a misery.
It just doesn't work when you need it to.
Get a new life and get rid of this stupid Microsoft crap, you are worth it!

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm hating it, 9 April 2013
I upgraded to this from 2010 through my work licensing "offer" from Microsoft for £10. Completely illegal practice in my opinion.
I really don't understand who would pay full price for this product, they must be out of their mind. If your PC/laptop fails after the install and all that money is just wasted as you have to buy another license.
£10 was a waste of money for me as it does not offer any real new functionality compared to Office 2010 that is useful for ordinary people. I liked the option of being able to insert screenshots into the document, but it is so awkward to use that a simple screen capture program with copy and paste option does a better job.
I don't have microsoft online account and I will NEVER get one. There are zillions of other online options to keep your documents updated instead and would be far better, more secure and reliable.
The user interface is just appalling, in Outlook preview you simply can't read the email text due to all other rubbish being shown on the message, empty picture icons, social rubbish, etc, etc.
I spent hours on searching the internet to find out how to remove all that visual garbage to make it half usable. There are hundreds of menus to customise things and I'm sure there would be plenty of one week courses to master them all until next release comes out. Sorry, forgot we are in different economic climate and companies are not wasting their money on that now...
I really don't understand the logic behind using 60-70% of app screen to show icons and other useless rubbish.
The whole Ribbon interface is hated by most people because of this.
We wouldn't be in this position if Microsoft didn't bribe their way through to the completely monopolised and proprietary market in document editing software.
Don't use it if you don't have 22 inch or bigger monitor or unless your PC or hard drive will NEVER EVER fail and need to be replaced as the office "software" is permanently tied to your existing PC and it's not transferable.
I'm not joking, see other reviews as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best PJ album, 25 Mar 2013
This review is from: Dry (Audio CD)
Every song is a climax of anger, love, happiness and desperation.
The guitar has a mind of it's own on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even adults will enjoy reading these, 1 Mar 2013
If you kids are between 7 and 11 they would love reading these books, it's very representative of typical life in a primary school and children love the characters and the humor.
I read it with my kids and it was the highlight of the evening to read it, they are now confident readers and reading them again by themselves.
The books are excellent introduction to the wonderful world of books and imagination that is much more enjoyable than any film can ever be.
I can't say that about many other books that I had the privilege to read with them...
