Fits canon 70d reasonably well. Note that it includes 6 screen protectors, 3 large and 3 small - not 6 of each.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent, 1 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked really well for me sending 1080i picture (Sky+HD) over a 30m length using Cat5e cable. I compared the tv picture from this to a direct feed from the back of the tv and you cannot tell the difference!

A far cheaper and easier option than buying a 30m HDMI cable especially when you are putting it down the side of the house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent product. Secure and flexable., 1 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really good to use as holder for phone in order to use it as a sat nav. It twists so you can have the phone horizontal and stays in position with no vibration.

Phone slots in nicely and a spring clip holds it.

The Complete Guide to Flags of the World
The Complete Guide to Flags of the World
by Brian Johnson
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introductory book to the worlds flags, if already a little out dated, 1 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book does what the title says, it details all of the worlds flags (as of 2009 - so includes ommisions like South Sudan) with good size pictures. Along side each picture a breif description of the flag is given along with its meaning and origin. Its not just countries, oversea terretories and regions/ states of countries are also listed.

My only criticism is that notation like "this is an overseas British Terretory" is within the description and it would have been nice if that was clarified in the sub header beneath the offical title of the country.

That said is a really good introductory book to the worlds flags including non-recognised states such as somaliland.

Well writen and clear introduction to transport economics for someone who did not study economics prior to university. It covers all of the key theories and principles you need to know with some informative examples.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you have a few weeks spare go for it... if not dont! Very detailed simulator!, 10 July 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unless you have a week to learn the instruction manual (+100 pages) do not buy it. It is basically a full on simulator of some dutch signalling control room. It is difficult and accurate. If I had the time I know it would be fun, but I dont so its not. You cant pick it up in half hour pressing buttons... trust me!

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job but a bit cumbersome, 10 July 2012

Does the job but a bit cumbersome and would suggest getting a plastic case to go round it or a sleave as folding over the leather cover to take a call is a bit anoying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Basically a notched up verision of AoE, 10 July 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far I have only played Rise of Nations and not the expansion disk that came with it.
I thought that it would take me a bit of time to get used to a new interface after being used to AoE gameplay in the past, but no it is basically the same game but notched up one step to make it a bit more strategic with things like markets to trade your resources but with fluctuating prices like the stock markets.

The best bit about the game though is the ages. I always felt AoE needed to go further once you fully industrialised and this game does the job well. Although the graphics are a bit weaker than AoE (but that is becuase it is an older game) they are still really good and do not detract from the playable nature of the game.

My one criticism is that you select south africa for instance but your army still calls all of the places by UK names which I dont really get, so will name a city in South Africa York or London?

I will also point out that the one star review on here is stupid and you should ignore it! They are talking about it not working in their CD drive... thats because it is a DVD!


No-nonsense Guide to Globalization (No-nonsense Guides)

4.0 out of 5 stars argument a bit skewed but a good and informative read, 9 July 2012
An easy informative read that covers the main aspects of globalisation for the most part since the end of the second world war. My only complaint is the aparent bias in the writing. The argument is not balance and it is clearly a gripe at globalisation. In one part it talks of the problems of structural adjustment programmes the west has imposed on the south only to then go on after a few pages of arguements in about two lines to say that political turmoil and coruption may also have been responsable. In addition to this the benifits of globalisation are not detailed fully - the way we and the author no doubt live our lives is the result of globalisation and the profiteering and re-investment and inovation as a result of the private sector - no doubt because it would detract from the authors criticism of past and current forms of globalisation.

Although an old book, and points mentioned feed into the cause of the current economic crisis it is well worth the read.


Working The Wheel
Working The Wheel
by Martin Brundle
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just a description of circuits and how to drive them, 19 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Working The Wheel (Paperback)
I really enjoyed reading this book. I was first a bit hesitant as it was a book with chapters of race circuits and thought it would just be a description of them and how to drive them (well it was inparts) but was mainly a recount of his own experiences at the circuits from the eyes of a driver taking about his eperiences not only as a formula 1 driver but also in earlier formula. It covers a lot you would expect from an autobiography about his life in f1, just not in a chronological order with a bit more depth about the places he was driving and the skills and stratagy needed to drive them well.

My only complaint is the book is not a full autobiography with pre and post racing events, but well worth the 1p (+p&p) i spent buying it!
