Works perfectly for small cables and plastic cable (zip) ties for such a small price.

They do what they are supposed to, but they could be cheaper.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great keyboard, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using heavily in a daily basis for three years so far, and is still working properly. It has an amazing battery life, its function keys are customisable (although I never found the side zoom keys useful). Its only downside is that it can be a little loud at some points. I bought it for £42, and it worth every penny.


Machinarium : Collectors Edition (PC/Mac DVD)
Machinarium : Collectors Edition (PC/Mac DVD)

5.0 out of 5 stars The adventure of a robot in love, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Machinarium is a point and click adventure game which brought me back to the good old days of such games. You control a small and cute (this is my feminine side speaking) robot through its journey to find its lost beloved one in a cruel robot world!

It has beautiful hand-made style graphics (as you can see on the screenshots) and the robot world is designed almost as I would have imagined it. Its music is a great company to the graphics. There is a lack of speech, but the communication is being done well using speech bubbles which explains everything clearly. After all, in a robot world English (or any other human language) can’t be an option!

It incorporates a large number of puzzles, in a great variety, from simple games (e.g. a large tic-tac-toe variation and an arcade asteroids game) to more complicated puzzles. Some of them are hard enough even for an experienced adventure games player (maybe due to the lack of explanation) but everything is solvable with some attention and patience.

After successfully using an item, it is disposed so the inventory isn’t full with unusable items (actually when I finished the game, I had 2 items left in my inventory but it wasn’t annoying at all).

But enough with the praise, let’s talk for the bad stuff: It’s a little bit annoying that you cannot just deselect an item in use and instead you have to return it to the inventory. Also, it might become boring at some point to have to watch the full animation of the robot walking up the stairs to go to another floor etc.

The only actual downfall of the game is the use of Flash as the development platform. Right-click does nothing (actually it displays the frustrating Flash player menu) when it could be used for example to deselect an item of the inventory (if another development platform was used since Flash doesn’t support right-click functionality as far as I’m aware). Also, the point-and-click system isn’t as precise as someone would expect it to be, so you might find yourself at some point clicking in the wrong place and making a wrong move.

But these facts couldn’t prevent even a huge Flash hater like myself to play and enjoy this amazing game! Before I forget, you cannot die in the game, so feel free to explore and try anything that you can think!

PS: The collectors edition is really worth it.

Masters Of Doom: How two guys created an empire and transformed pop culture

Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.69

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring and motivational read, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The inspiring tale of the two Johns (Carmack and Romero) who formed Id software and created -among others- Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake, massively evolving the world of gaming. It's not a book containing any tactical stuff related to starting or growing a business, but I found it a quite interesting and motivational read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly recommended platformer, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Limbo is a dark and atmospheric puzzle-platformer. Its graphics are very simple; you can only see the silhouette of the character you're controlling and the outline of the rest of the world. There are no fights with enemies; you can only run around, jump, and interact with a few objects. Be prepared to die a lot, though!

PS: The limited addition box set is completely worth it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice cover for Samsung S3 mini, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice cover for Samsung S3 mini. Easy to open/close even with one hand, it hasn't worn out at all (have been using it for 7 months), and it generally does what it's supposed to do.

A minor issue is that the button holes are not very well aligned with the buttons (i.e. power and volume buttons), but they are still usable and you are getting used to it after a bit. I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars only because it doesn't cover all the sides of the phone (the top & bottom sides are not covered).
