3.0 out of 5 stars not bad for price., 16 July 2014
Reasonable picture quality from this little camera, build quality is good for price, records in 3 minute clips and overwrites files once card is full. Had issues trying to put video files in movie maker or Sony Vegas, must be a slightly odd video file format. Handbrake sorted that out nicely by converting to mp4 with no real quality loss. Selection of mounts is good. Night time footage is poor, sound almost non- existent. Good for me as an extra can on my bike in addition to gopro on helmet, so I can get on- bike footage too. You can adjust camera settings via a text file that appears on the SD card- allows turning off the date , changing exposure, colour etc. Not bad for the price if you don't need sound or night footage. Nice as a cheap MTB helmet cam. .

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book for the anatomy, shame about some of the pictures., 11 Dec 2012
Good book as far as showing how various muscles come into play during many different types of exercise. The illustrations are excellent, and well drawn and overall its a great book to learn the functional anatomy and proper names of all the muscles etc. What struck me about the book was the uneccessarily sexist pictures! The male figure diagrams are shown working out clothed, or where muscles/ bones are shown it's not in the genital region, and most of the female diagrams show the figure partially naked, but sometimes showing the breasts, vagina or both. where the female diagram has a top on, its semi- see through showing erect nipples???
In another diagram, the female figures is wearing a top, but no shorts or leggings?? Do people work out like that?
Cant really see how this adds to the book content, and why there is such a disparity between the depiction of the male and female form. Now I am not really offended by this, but just surprised how blatant it is for a modern book. Should treat both sexes the same in how they are drawn.

Recommended read, but bear in mind the pictures, if that would bother you. Guess its a book mainly for Men, and thats why it doesnt seem to have been mentioned by the other reviewers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, sound advice, 4 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Picked up this book (kindle edition) as a background read while just starting out with light weights and jogging in my 40's
The style of writing is easy to follow, the descriptions of exactly how muscles work from a biological point of view were excellent. The insight into how muscles get stressed from the workout, then use components from the diet to recover and grow during the rest period was fascinating.
The chapters cover eating/ diet,using supplements, safety, as well as all of the excercise types (with photos of each one), , tips on gaining maximum benefit from your workouts, 3 different types of diet/ workout depending on your body type and goal, utilising the anabolic "window", how to best increase mass, and more.
The book is for American readers, but translates fine for the UK body builder. i feel that i have learned a lot in a short time with this book.
highly recommended (but i am a novice!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Small sized EE-3 replica, but can be modded, 17 Sep 2011
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This EE-3 Boba fett blaster is a great toy in its own right and will delight kids. Has a loud electronic blaster sound and lights up.
bear in mind you will need an adult to release the item from its packaging, its virtually welded in there! Batteries ARE included.
for the older kid read on........
You can modify and paint these up to be a replica EE-3 for fancy dress, but they do require quite a bit of work and this item is quite small.
The main areas needing attention are the pistol grip (needs enlarging to fit an adult hand) and the stock need extending. A cheap 4x20 scope can be added in place of the plastic one to add authenticity. just spraying it black and adding some grey " weathering" effects makes it suitable for fancy dress.
I wouldnt pay more than about twenty squid for it, as you can get this item cheaper than that online.
Thanks for listening!
(See last photo on listing for the final modified item after painting and weathering)

4.0 out of 5 stars Adult fancy dress?, 17 Sep 2011
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
YES!
This item is big enough for an adult to wear to attend a fancy dress party. The sounds which it plays are very low volume, so no-one is going to hear them except you!
Item takes a little bit of assembly, but afterwards is great. Head straps ensure you can custom fot from child to adult ( to be honest its more suited to adult as quite large and heavy)
Suitable for custom work and repainting. Differs from the "real" Boba Fett helmet mostly in that the visor is much bigger and wider (presumably so you can actually see out much better)- but this can be fixed with plastic card over the front and painted.
Its a good , cost effective helmet for Boba fans to modify if they are able to, and for everyone else, its will fit adults and be great for a fancy dress event.
Cheers for listening!

4.0 out of 5 stars Zenithink ZT-180 10.2 screen, 256MB RAM, 24 Jun 2011
Thunderc's review is spot on. These devices are not in the same league as the ipad, but then neither is the price. Be prepared to put some time in on this device to get the most from it. Screen responsiveness and operation is slow and quirky- but when you get used to it, entirely functional. mine was seventy squid.
battery life 1-2 hours dependant on useage. build quality is Ok, but bear in mind the price. Screen is bright but has not got very good off- axis viewability (you need to be right in front of it for best results).
mine runs IMDB, BBC News, angry birds, UTUBE, marketplace, adobe, Kindle, facebook all fine. runs slow with better android games as slow processor/ low RAM.
Music playback is Ok, as Thunderc says, volume level is quite low. headphones Ok, but slight background hum.
Video playback generally good up to 720p. utube videos play fine.
Kindle use is good, with all features (use mine a lot for this)
Adobe book reading is good, if a little slow on page turns etc, but entirely useable.
plug a mouse in the USB port works fine (ipad cant do that)
USB port can be used to plug flash drive inand run content from it.

Summary:
it aint no ipad, but for less than a ton it looks the same (lots of colleagues commented that i had splashed out on an ipad), and has functionality similar to a netbook. Screen takes getting used to and does not have ipad zoom or speed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor, continually repeats itself, 14 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very poor, save your money. Text just continually loops through the same advice, and its not really advice to be honest. after a couple of pages, I realised this e- book was probably a con, as it is just a blantant re- typing f the same paragraphs. Hope you dont make the same mistake and buy this!
