5.0 out of 5 stars He says it's good, even on the first go, 7 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not being quite that hairy faced, I passed it to the testing department, who normally uses a Gilette hand shaver for preference. He found it a very nice close shave, even on the first go. The independently moving heads do get into all the face contours. We'd tried an earlier version of this, but it was a bit awkward to take on holiday, as it really needed the cleaning station to charge. This version just has a simple plug in charging point AND a nice hard case.
Although you can clean it under the tap (manual says make sure the water isn't too hot) it's a bit annoying that a cleaning station isn't included, and I can't quite work out which one would go with this modl.
VERDICT: yup, you want it.

4.0 out of 5 stars As you really need one per room...., 6 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a fairly reduced design- my original detector has a display as well to advise you if there is a small amount- this is an all or nothing thing. Bung in the batteries and press the button to test it- ear splitting screech results. The instructions suggest you blow smoke from a cigarette or a joss stick to actually ensure the sensor is working- poor me I have neither!
Anyway- happy now to have a second detector to go in the bedroom.
My initial detector was bought because we kept on getting headaches and felt icky- this is a sign of CO poisoning. Because I live in flats there are loads of boilers, and most of them don't seem to get serviced. we did just have the blue flu happily, but it's nice to be reassured.
Given all the awful stories of poor families succumbing to fumes while in holiday homes, this is the ideal size to pack in your hand luggage, just to keep safe.

fascinating insight into the hormone that pretty much dominates the world. Definitely worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat confusing, 4 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
well, they are fairly comfy to wear, even with glasses- I tend not to like big heavy headphones as they hurt after a while.
They are a bit odd since they seem to handle the bottom range reasonably, mid range fairly well, and go a little hissy at the top. Anything with a wide range seems clipped. So having thrown YouTube at them, britney Spears and the Rutles play reasonably well, nigel Eaton on Hurdy Gurdy is fine. Neil Innes on I'm the Urban Spaceman and Blowzabella on multi instruments both sound a little weird and missing sections.
So OK if you like ordinary music. Otherwise not

3.0 out of 5 stars How to play the flute, 9 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
.......blow in the hole and move your fingers up and down (thanks, Python (Monty). Pretty much this thin book is a complete waste of tree. Banal, and too general to be of any use. I upped it to three stars only because it does contain an explanation of a responsive design, Twitter Bootstrap (something that will scale your website with pinch and zoom so it works on your desktop AND your smartphone. Plus technically HTML is markup. Spend your pennies elsewhere

4.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best in the series to start with, 7 Jun. 2015

Three days ago I was still perplexed about how to get my DSLR to work. Although I'd grown up using film SLRs, digital perplexed me for years and stopped me just enjoying getting shots. It was enough to try to puzzle out what all the automatic pictograms meant. My colour saturation was intermittent. THEN I ended up reading through the entireity of this beginner series. NOW I get it. Yes there are a few problems with the text misreading computer characters and inserting short strings of gibberish when the author meant to type an apostrophe. Yes the different books do repeat chunks of other books, and overall that does make them a pricey series at the moment. HOWEVER.

As a standalone book this goes through the principles of setting the ISO (my first confusion explained, as I couldn't get what this old film speed term meant for digital). You get an explanation on how to set the white balance. THEN, what I should now be using most, the Av mode or APERTURE VALUE (f numbers/depth of field) . It allows you to adjust the depth of field with the manual thumbwheel while kerping an eye on the film speed which it adjusts automatically. In practice, taking shots round a bird collection where the sun kept changing between sunny and cloudy, I eventually put ISO back on auto and just kept adjusting the white balance, as I kept missing shots. Indoors this would have been less of a faff, as conditions would have been more constant.
If you want to adjust action in your shots, start with the book on Tv TIME VALUE/ shutter speed. Instead.
The strength of these books is the very comprehensive collection of colour pictures that go through each scenario in turn. Also the author is not seeking to dazzle you with his supadooper artistry, he is trying to demonstrate with commonplace examples so you can go off and get inspired.
I read this last, but wish it had been first.
