Pure ONE Mini Series II Compact Portable DAB/FM Radio - Black
Price: £49.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Value., 1 Aug. 2014

Simple. Effective. Good for the bathroom, if you have the battery. DAB delay matches our other PURE radios, so no signal displacement "echo". Now we have three.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top buy for style-indifferent self trackers., 1 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good for tracking activity and -- unlike the Vivofit -- doesn't stealthily slip off your wrist in week 1, never to be seen again. Wearing it as a watch may prove too much for style seekers, unless they are going to a Thunderbirds Convention.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nightmare, 20 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has been the first total fail of any Apple product I have owned; and this is probably my 10th iPod. I have found it impossible to get my PC to recognise the device, making it a pretty ineffective £95 paperwieight. Indeed, I would have been far better off if I had simply purchased such an object as I would not have lost half a day following arcane instructions uninstalling and installing software. As neither the iPod nor the PC is was launched recently, there is no excuse for problems of this sort.

Others have not all had this problem. But just know that you are playing roulette.

Truly moving story of an inspiring man and musician lost and then found. Story would be unbelieveable if it wasn't true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but pays for itself., 15 Sept. 2013

Works more smoothly than filter paper. Seem to need less coffee for a given strength than with paper filters. Will never run out, stores in AeroPress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gower walks for the energetic, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why invest in another Gower walking guide, when there are already so many available? This has a good range of walks, including many that are longer than the norm. The NW of Gower -- too often overlooked -- is particularly well represented.

All are well explained and illustrated, with useful snippets of Gower history/geology etc. thrown in. Best used with an OS but this is not essential.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too long but useful, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is so long that, at UK voltages, transmission losses are such that it can't quite charge an iPad2 while it is in use. But it will definitely extend non-contorted viewing significantly.

Microplane Premium Zester/ Grater, Turquoise

5.0 out of 5 stars Narrow niche genius, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Who knew blade dimensions could have such an effect. We have other, coarser microplanes which do their own stuff well.
But for zesting lemons and mushing garlic (both tedious with other tools), this is a complete winner. As these are two of the most important sources of flavour in cooking, this is a great investment. And, if it is like my other microplanes, will last forever.

If you need any space for writing look elsewhere. But as a nice window on Gower on the wall, this is lovely.
