5.0 out of 5 stars It's like..., 25 July 2013

... a flak jacket for phones. Reet easy to put on, take off to pick the hairs of the screen, and put on again. Went on like a proper little corker.

5.0 out of 5 stars A reet good USB pen, it is, aye., 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Aye. Lovely in t'blue, and its reet tough an'all. I saved so much stuff on it, I literally saw it get, lark, twice as big, I swear, as when I first got it. It quite literally grew like an inflating ballon that's just got a bit of air in it (like when you start to blow up a tough ballon but carn't get it to properly blow, and ya get a proper 'eadache and stop - that big). A cracking pen with lots of memory brains. Careful though, cos even though its called a pen, you carn't write bugger all with it.

Everything about this is cracking. The amount of information, the smile it puts on your face, all of the pictures, the spine when you first open it. Brilliant.

1.0 out of 5 stars How much?, 21 July 2013
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tennis Ball in Soft Foam (Toy)
Just be clear. You will receive ONE ball. The product description reads:
"Tennis Ball in Soft Foam, 24"
I had a punt on whether the '24' meant you got 24 balls. You don't. You get one. And given it costs around £4 with postage, it's grossly overpriced.
Avoid.
(I used Fun Fancy Dress Ltd - I can only presume the others send you one ball too)

3.0 out of 5 stars Effective, worth £4.99. (Snigger) 80% off! Bargain (Snigger), 19 Feb 2013
It's a thick plastic bag with three of those things at the top that seal bags. And the top of the bag folds over, with a couple of button pop things. And there's a cord that 99% of the buyers will cut off on receipt. It's a bit big for the Kindle Paperwhite, but does fine.

Don't be fooled. It's VALUE is about £4, not the £24.99 it was 'originally' on sale for. If you REALLY paid that much for it you'd feel like you'd been mugged!

3.0 out of 5 stars Effective but not cheap for what it is, 19 Feb 2013
Very solid on the windscreen. Holds the phone really well. It's (just) worth £12 for what it DOES, but certainly not for what it IS. It feels like a very cheap item. I dread to think what the markup is!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK case, poor screen protector, 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Case is OK. Protects the back from scratching and gives SOME protection to the phone when dropped I suspect (depends how it lands), but really just for aesthetics.
Screen protectors quite thick. Easy enough to get on, but thick and feel cheap, and you have to really squeeze out the bubbles. One of those protectors where you always have little bits around the edge that just won't stick down fully.

2.0 out of 5 stars There's nowhere to go but down, 1 Jan 2012
I adore The Office. Best comedy series ever, even better than any series of Blackadder. Extras was OK. Found it's legs in the second series along with the Christmas Special. Little Fat Man song was genius. Still not as good as The Office, obviously. Then this. It's really, really bad for the following reasons;

- The only guest appearance that was well used and funny was Liam Neeson. The others were painful, especially Depp and Bonham-Carter. Dear me. As for the bloke off the American Office. Oh dear. Seriously, that was meant to be comedy?
- Gervais and Merchant, sitting ridiculously behind that desk, have no place in this show. As demonstrated by the plethora of posters around the office with his own face on, Gervais is there to demonstrate just how brilliant he is and to 'give the fans a treat'. Problem is, he nor Merchant have a single funny line in the whole series and, intended or not, Gervais comes across as incredibly horrible and arrogant.
- The looks to camera. Far too overused, and now not funny. Please.
- The accountant and PR characters, not being funny.
- The wife and solicitor, not being funny.
- Warwick, being Brent on a day when he's not being funny. Honestly, EXACTLY the same character, but nowhere near as funny.
- The best lines were from Chegwin and Les Dennis. Their screen time must have been about 30 seconds in total, and probably only really funny because they reminded me of funny moments from Extras!

Extras series two was better than series one. Sort this mess out with the same outcome!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product but be aware how to set up, 4 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product, but BEWARE...

When pairing two adapters, only hold the button down for between 3 and 8 seconds, then let go (I counted to five). The power light on the front will then flash.

Don't do what I did, and hold the button until the lights flashed, then let go. This is too long (about 12 seconds) and the pairing will not work.

Lastly, if you are 'pairing' three (or more) adaptors, make sure they are in very close proximity, just during the pairing process. If you don't get to the third adaptor within a couple of seconds of the first two to pair it, you'll never get all three communicating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic, 2 Oct 2010
Having read this book (please, I didn't buy it, but read it in about 2 hours on a bumpy flight from Turkey after borrowing it from the passenger next to me), I have to say it was one of the most fascinating books I've ever read. Why? Because it really made me think about my own sad life and how, in Heavens name, I might gain any entertainment from reading about sad Gary sad Cockerill, friend of the friendless. Pathetic. Me and him.
