1.0 out of 5 stars Pretentious, 1 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Broken (Kindle Edition)
I rarely give up on books, but this one had to go at 30 per cent. The premise of the writer's dialogue with a character allows Fossum to meander on in a self-indulgent musing style which isn't relieved by any active plot and offers no psychological insights.

1.0 out of 5 stars beware, 23 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Apple TV MD199HK/A (Electronics)
If you were thinking of mirroring an apple computer on screen, you should be aware that airplay, which is required to do that, is only avilable on apple computers sold after mid 2011. Otherwise this is really just a box for renting movies, showing videos from your iphone/ipad or signing up to Netflix.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 29 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very much in the same genre as G K Chesterton, so I should have known. The dialogue is stilted (nobody, even in the 50s, ever spoke like this) and the plots implausible. It isn't funny either. I found myself reading quickly just so I could finish and get onto something better. Which is a shame because on TV Mr Runcie came across as an entertaining and likeable chap.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another Pretender, 29 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a bit of a pot boiler, OK for a holiday read, but not in the same league as a CJ Sansom. The basic tenet, that here is a boy who looks enough like a king for others to notice, and the descriptions around that, are quite naive, and the characters separate neatly into very good goodies and very nasty baddies. There are irritating lapses in the proof-reading of the Kindle edition, which should have been spotted. I won't be proceeding to the subsequent books in the series, but if you want something lightweight, it's passable.

5.0 out of 5 stars mybook 500Gb essential, 17 Mar. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Formatting to NTFS took seconds following the clear intructions on the website (should really be with enclosed paper instructions). I used the suppled WD backup software to perform a full system and file backup of 2x 250 Gb disks, about 3/4 full, with hundreds of large image and CAD files. This first full backup was very much an overnight type operation (it took 17 hours), but the subsequent incremental backups are done very quickly - it took 2 minutes to write over 300 files which had been modified. I can't see any downside to this disk: it's silent in operation, portable for security and easy to accommodate in its vertical mode.
