4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice watch. Face is a bit cluttered, but the time is a good size. Lots of flexibility with stopwatches, times, multiple alarms, world time etc. Strap simple to adjust, maybe feels a little light, but I would recommend it - great value for the money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware Tech Support, 13 Oct 2013
This is a really great machine but there is an issue with the Computer interface (Home2) which Tomtom are reluctant to admit. If you use it as a stand alone and update via computer fine. If you want to use the interface to plan journeys - you have been warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars A moment's sanity, 1 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are a Christian who rushes through life (as most of us do) then this book is brilliant. It's about "practicing the presence of God" - or remembering that God is with you and for you wherever and whenever you are. You can read a day's reading in under a minute, but I find it to be a great "scene setter" for the day. I have given this to about half a dozen people all of which have found it really helpful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great but .., 21 Feb 2012
As far as voice recognition goes it is really good, but the User profile you must create is really fragile and even if shut down properly is easily corrupted. The a way to recreate them but this requires a very expensive tech support package or starting the training from scratch again which is hugely time consuming. Customer support is non-existent once you've paid your money. Buyer Beware!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really challenging, 19 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is the diary of Simon Gillebaud who took the dangerous path of deciding to follow God's will for his life and ended up practically showing Jesus Christ to people in the middle of the Burundi civil war. The writing is nothing to write home about as literature goes, but I had to read this in small chunks as almost every page made me stop and question my own motivations. I would strongly recommend this book for Christians who are wondering if there is more to the Christian life than services and for anyone who wonders what Christianity, with its claim to be a living relationship with God, is all about. But there is one caveat, once you get on the journey with Simon, you never know where you might get off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where the wild things really are., 21 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is the film of the classic 1960's book by Ken Kesey, which follows the story of McMurphy, convicted of assault and statutory rape, who how has been incarcerated in a mental institution for assessment.
The disruptive influence that McMurphy brings to this peaceful and ordered world puts him on a collision course with the manipulative and tyrannical Nurse Ratched, which can only end in trouble. As we experience the problems of his fellow inmates we are forced to reflect on what normality really is, and where we fit into it. This film is a tough watch, but his hugely insightful, drawing on Kesey's own experience working in mental institutions. Humorous, touching and in a strange way life affirming. A film deserving of the 5 Oscars it won.

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE - NOT FROM THE FILM, 21 April 2008
The other reviews are spot on. If you found an unlabelled copy of this CD you would never guess the connection to LOR. I was hugely dissapointed. This is like going to a Queen concert and getting a tribute band singing anything by Queen songs. If you like wallpaper music you may like it - elsewise beware - the tracks go ever on and on...

3.0 out of 5 stars Wandering mouse, 3 Oct 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I agree with the comments below. A good product with a flaw - in mouse mode tends to develop "mouse creep". Without touching any of the buttons in the mouse wanders off. I bought two one is fine and one is almost unusable. As a presenter it is fine as a mouse ...

Buy with caution.
