4.0 out of 5 stars Good bit of pacey fun., 12 April 2014
This review is from: D.O.A. (Amazon Instant Video)
I enjoyed this. A good fast paced mystery-thriller.
Sure, there are some unlikely situations / responses from certain characters but it all rolls along very nicely.

I'd recommend this if you like this vintage of suspenseful stuff.

Oh yeah -picture and sound were fine on streaming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great hammy intruiging crime/espionage thriller., 8 April 2014
I enjoyed this escapade. OTT dramatic acting and gets a bit preoccupied with the commy angle towards the end but a very enjoyable caper nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than original. And great value., 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Several improvements over the OEM brick which came with my ASUS Aspre One D250:

1) This PSU is smaller.
2) It has a power LED.
3) The wire is thicker and more robust.

How could I not give this 5-stars?

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but worth it., 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great shampoo. Very concentrated; just a small blob gets up a rich lather and leaves the hair squeaky clean.
Has a nice almond fragrance.

My missus's salon suggests this brand to wash her curly perm and she won't use anything else.

Good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great. Tested 100% OK. U-1 / Class 10., 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought direct from Amazon for extra confidence due to number of flaky cards on the market.

This product is genuine and a top-notch performer PLUS was such good value there's no point risking an unbranded version from a dubious source.

It arrived in nice, basic packaging as well, so I didn't need bolt croppers to get at it.

Well recommended and no hesitation in awarding 5 stars.

Android Programming: Pushing the Limits
Android Programming: Pushing the Limits
by Erik Hellman
Edition: Paperback
Price: 18.62

4.0 out of 5 stars Advanced. For advanced Android application developers only!, 6 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
'Pushing The Limits' indeed; this book is for ALREADY experienced Android app developers who want to PUSH themselves.
One should already have mastered the Activity, Service, Broadcast Receiver and Content Provider classes, it says.

But I haven't.

-I was really after an 'Introduction to' type book and have clearly bitten-off more than I can chew here.
As such, I'm not fully qualified to review this book but I can see that it is seriously in-depth and thorough.

Amazon's 'Look Inside' feature will display the chapters list and index which show just how thorough this book is. -It teaches not only how to exploit Android's official features but also how to call Hidden APIs and Hack Android.

The writing style is explicit and informative. That is, instructions are given clearly and without humour or waffle.
Some screenshots are a bit hard to read as the text is small and grey-on-black but the code in the text is clearly written in standard sized text.

Erik offers a list of sites and books at the end of each chapter to help those who don't particularly specialise in that area. This is a nice touch to help those who need to swot up before tackling the subject matter.

This book looks like an extensive and thorough guide which is clearly written and I'd be tempted to award 5 stars. But as most of it is Greek to me I can't really say if there are any omissions or faults so am being prudent and awarding 4.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work in the wet! Impossible packaging. Not for rechargeable batteries., 6 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As these things go, this is better than most...

-It is nicely shaped with curved lines and no fiddly edges (rather phallic if I say so myself).
-Feels solid in the hand and houses FOUR (supplied) batteries for superior power.
-Has a robust sanding wheel which is properly abrasive (almost industrial!) and removable for cleaning.

BUT
-It is impossible to remove it from the most ridiculous plastic packaging.
-IT CANNOT BE USED IN THE BATH as is not waterproof. Huh?
-Manufacturer advises NOT to use rechargeable batteries but doesn't say why.

It's too much hassle waiting for your feet to be dry so you can RETURN to the bathroom to use this instead of simply using a waterproof device which can be used at the same time as bathing/showering.

Mrs P has a plastic file thing -a flat stick of plastic with a handle shape at one end and an abrasive coating on each side of the other bat-shaped end. This is easy to store and can be used IN the bath manually, unlike this Scholl electric device.

Sure, the Scholl sander works. But it will remain in the drawer most of the time as it isn't a convenient enough alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look good. Comfortable & functional. Washable., 6 April 2014
I've had these for several years and they're fraying a bit but are still intact.

Will probably buy another pair. You can use the stringy bit to wipe the sweat off your brow.

Good for driving as well as cycling.


The World's Best Spicy Food (Lonely Planet Food & Drink)
The World's Best Spicy Food (Lonely Planet Food & Drink)
by Lonely Planet
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.34

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book equally viable for coffee-table reading or actual cooking. Hot Hot!, 31 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have no hesitation in awarding this book 5 stars.

Imo, similarly to TV cooking shows, these types of books can have 2 functions: purely as entertainment (in the form of a 'coffee-table' book) and/or as a functioning cookery guide with ingredients & method.

This title does BOTH admirably well PLUS it throws in a bit of a travel-guide element by recommending where one can actually source genuine versions of the dishes to slurp up in far-flung destinations.

You may be able to see from Amazon's 'Look Inside' feature that each dish is laid-out very pleasingly on 2 facing pages.
-Background info and descriptions are shown in box-outs over a nice textured background image on the left, with a plainer page on the right offering an ingredients list and method for those who want a bash at knocking it up themselves. There's a relevant photo' displayed on each page.

Mine came with a free ebook downnload of 'The World's Best Street Food' which was a bonus.

I'd value the book at 13 to 15. It's marked as 15- but if it's going for cheaper I'd suggest you snap it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars On in an instant., 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wouldn't bother with any flourescents under 20 Watts; they'll only ruin your eyesight.

This is a nice compact bulb with good brightness and it really does come on in an instant -just like an incandescent.

Very good, no drawbacks.
