4.0 out of 5 stars 30 day battery life, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap, light, durable, clear sound, colour screen, headphones if you want to use them. Like an iPhone, but better on battery and has less apps.

Losing My Virginity
Losing My Virginity
by Sir Richard Branson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Great inspirational book at start, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Losing My Virginity (Paperback)
Gets boring at end when he speak about his personal goals.

Also, the big business deals are a little irrelevent for me, and the ballooning chapters are not so interesting.

The start of the book is great, learning of his business methods and partners and deals etc.

Neck got cold, but good for price. Used for skiing
Fairly thin material, but that was ok.
Probably not the best product out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars Never turned up!!, 23 Feb 2014

I wasn't contacted to be informed, and just waited patiently for a few weeks.

I had to do some last minute ski sock shopping in town and pay far more than online.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent summary and inspirational, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Covers most the important things in Jobs' life.
Nice to read it.
He wasn't perfect, but had faith in many of his ideas.

Well written, and concise. Sometimes might have preferred more detail, but I don't really read that much, so I'm very happy with the length of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inspirational.

Ray Kroc didn't get involved with McDonaldsuntil he was 52.
Nice to read about how he did it, the obstacles he came across, how it really wasn't all that smooth, and how he had a few character flaws himself.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unresponsive, difficult to use, AFWUL browsers, cheap, 23 Feb 2014
Just HORRIBLE tablet.

Slow to open, since the swipe rarely responds first time. Also, need your hotmail password to login, so get ready to share that with all your friends that want to use your tablet!

I was happy to have Office, but most the icons are too small for a tablet. So, undo cannot be hit most the time, often you hit a different key. On average when used to the tiny menus it takes 5 attempts to hit something.My friend tried closing browser tabs, but couldn't in over 20 attempts.

I wanted to use it for browsing mainly, but only really desktop browsers to choose from. So, after finally unlocking the tablet, you click on the browser icon, but it then switches to 'desktop mode' and then launches the browser. Slow. However, it gets worse. Now, you don't get a keyboard, since its in desktop mode. So, you have to click on that tiny icon and if/ when you manage to get it open, it COVERS GOOGLE SEARCH, so you can't see what you're typing. That is made worse by the fact that it doesn't always start typing when you want it to. The only half-decent free browser in tablet mode has only one tab and you can't open multiple copies of it, so is very '1990'. You can't really browse th web on this tab!

in desktop mode, it is better, but why not just get a laptop?

Just noticed that the screen is cracked. I have had a cover on it, and my bag is never very full, so the screen can't be very strong at all.

All in all, a VERY disappointing tablet. Not even close to an iPad mini or iPad 2 or Samsungs, which are similar prices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best armband iPhone case out there, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I did a lot of research, and this seemed the best, running case, so it had a LOT to live up to.
Amazingly, it did that, and more.

GOOD POINTS:
- Looks fine; actually more stylish than in pic, and is a bit smaller, making it more discrete
- Durable enough for price
- Velcro strap makes it so easy to adjust
- Phone does not have play inside the case, so always feels 100% secure
- Very light indeed
- Doesn't feel uncomfortable
- So much cheaper than many cases, and I can't see how any of the more expensive ones could possibly be better than this
- PJA Distribution dispatched it really quickly

UNEXPECTED GOOD POINTS:
- My iPhone fits in, WITH it's shellcase on, so I don't need to constantly be removing that each time I run
- Has slots for charging and earphones, so don't need to keep removing from case to use those
- Using phone screen through case isn't impossible. I was writing text replies on first use, and iPod buttons etc work fairly easily. That's brilliant considering I have a really thick screen protector on.

I seriously can't think why anyone would get any other case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
- Fast delivery.
- Soft to your peachy parts.
- Decent price.

...but housemates took a liking to using it. Toilet visits increased, and it didn't last long. Far better product for families, than for people who live with potential frequent flyers.
