1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money doesn't work, 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Card was initially readable by phone but after two days it burnt out, and is no longer recognised. It's cheap tat, stay away

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works but not very well.

The leather on the clasp started cracking after a couple of days of use, and if you fold the cover back on itself (necessary so you can use it one handed) the magnet in the case makes the screen turn off.

That said, it works as a case, and I'm probably going to keep using it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Badly size but otherwise ok., 1 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought the largest size (XXL) of these gloves as they were on special offer. Despite having fairly normal sized hands they are too tight around the palm knuckles to wear comfortably. They also have a polyester lining that makes my hands sweat even when I'm not cycling.

Otherwise, if you have small hands and don't sweat very much, they seem like a light well-made pair of gloves, and I will probably give them to a friend with smaller hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minimalist table, just the right size, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good size, large enough to work with a laptop, books, and papers, but not so large that it takes over the room. The lack of drawers/ a filing cabinet give much more leg room and makes it more enjoyable to work at.

Unlike cheap wood style tables, that are made of MDF and a thin layer of laminate, it looks good, and is not pretending to be something it's not.

Highly recommended.


New Everlast Bag Boxing Gloves

2.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Generally poor quality.
The inner lining is not attached the the outer leather layer and when you remove your hand, the thumb inner layer is separated from the outer thumb, and it takes a minute of fiddling before you can use the glove again.

Glove has no padding at all, I guess it's suitable for condition your hands to get used to a heavy bag, without skinning your knuckles.


Anatomy Of Strength Training: The 5 Essential Exercises
Anatomy Of Strength Training: The 5 Essential Exercises
by Pat Manocchia
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed overview of 5 fundamental exercises and their varients, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Includes multiple photos of each motion, and detailed anatomical drawings showing which muscles are used.

As the exercises aren't listed anywhere else, they are:
1. Deadlift
2. Lunge
3. Push-ups
4. Pull-ups
5. Ab-wheel

To do all the variants you will need a fully equipped gym, but many (obviously, none of the deadlifts) can be done with just a chin-up bar and a yoga ball.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge improvement over standard showerhead, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My bathtub is almost level with the hot water tank, and we don't get a lot of pressure to run the shower. Replacing the old shower head with this has completely revitalised the shower, and massively improved everything.

It's a cheap, and easy to install alternative to fitting an electric pump.

My only regret is not buying this years ago.

Why Things Break: Understanding the World By the Way It Comes Apart
Price: £6.89

4.0 out of 5 stars More an autobiography than an account of why things break, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an account Mark's journey to understand the world, rather than what scientists have found.

An enjoyable read none the less, and there is some coverage of "Why things of break" along the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very bright, large rear light with wide viewing angle, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good extremely noticeable light, and bright enough to easily spot in Central London. The 'anti-theft device' of a single screw mentioned by the other reviewer is completely ineffectual - I've been taking the light on and off without tools, and didn't even realise it was meant to stop removal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice TV but not smart enough, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The picture and sound are good enough, as discussed by other reviewers.

The primary problem with it is, when watching online TV, the network connection drops out frequently, requiring the TV to be restarted. This occurs 3 meters from the wireless router, in direct line of sight, where other devices show a full connection. As restarting the TV fixes it, this is clearly a problem with the TV and not the network.

Unfortunately, restarting the TV, and the reloading the watched program takes around a minute. It also loses the place on some online channels like 4od, and you have to rewatch the adverts to skip back to where you were before. On a bad day, this will happen 3-4 times in a 40 minute program. All in all, it's a bit disappointing as an online device.
