5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting flavour, 15 April 2015
Has a slightly sweet and "fruity" flavour by comparison with straight Mate. I am not sure that I get extra energy from the combination of Guarana and Mate but this tea has an interesting taste that is less "green" than brands such as Cruz de Malta.

3.0 out of 5 stars big and clunky, 26 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this piece of kit in order to protect my iPad when on the beach.
It is not really suitable for this type of function. It is very heavy duty around the frame but the plastic membrane seems very delicate. It would probably do best as the cover for an IPad being used on a sailing boat (e.g. for navigation).

My cat managed to eat the connections on the cable but fortunately did not get as far as munching the headphones. I thought all was lost until I spotted this replacement cable I now have a system that is as good as new with remote volume and start/stop capabilities! The headphones sound wonderful all over again

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading information, 12 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased the Philips 388 Pocket Memo Rechargeable BECAUSE it was rechargeable. Unfortunately recharging requires a 3v adaptor, and rechargeable batteries -- neither of which is included in the package. The product did arrive with batteries included (Philips LR6 1.5v AA) but they are explicitly marked "non-rechargeable". The adaptor (in the product information) is called an "optional extra"! Hardly "Optional" if the product is being used in the manner advertised and intended.

Of course Amazon can supply an adaptor (apparently with an American plug) at the bargain price of £39.99.(Philips Pocket Memo Power Supply Ref 142). No doubt they could also sell some rechargeable batteries but I am not impressed.

The product is nearing end of life and with this approach to marketing it deserves to be on the junk heap sooner rather than later.


Camden Memory Tests
Camden Memory Tests
by Eliz Warrington
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars For the specialist user, 15 Mar. 2011

This review is from: Camden Memory Tests (Paperback)
The Camden Memory Tests are a collection of psychometric tests that were designed to be used in assessing neurological impairments of memory. The "package" consists of FIIVE subtests in separate booklets together with a manual with technical information. The Camden Memory Tests are mostly measures of recognition - supplemented by one test of Paired Associate Learning. They are primarily suitable for use with older and less able client groups.

The publisher (Psychology Press) restricts the sale of these items to people who have qualifications relevant to test administration (it is unlikely that they will be of interest to people without clinical or assessment training). Restricted tests occasionally, become available at a discount price on the open market - as was the case with my purchase. However, booksellers do not necessarily have all of the relevant information and intending purchasers from secondary sales outlets are recommended to check that all of the tests and the manual are included in their package. I was sent a single book (fortunately, the seller acknowledged the problem and I was not out of pocket).

The Camden Tests are very useful in quick assessments of pepole with neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders of memory. They cover a different set of skills from the Wechsler Memory Scales or the California Verbal Learning Test and are very useful in Neuropsychological practice. However, they are assessment materials and are not suitable as primary sources for the training or rehabilitation of memory and are probably susceptible to practice effects on re-administration. You cannot use them to "test your own memory" and as only a few clinics now use them routinely, their occasional availability on the open market is unlikely to have serious consequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars functional and fun, 12 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an attractive manual pencil sharpener which looks good on the desktop and does its job well. It can produce good, very pointed pencils (probably less than 5mm at their tops). The heavy handed writers I share my pencils with invariably break the very tip on their first attempts at writing with pencils from this gadget - but I personally like the fine tips for drawing and writing.
In routine use, the red upper part of the sharpener needs to be removed from the yellow and black striped drum in order to empty the waste or remove broken graphite from the sharpener. There is a ribbed pressure point (above the written label on the drum) for facilitating removal but the top has a very tight friction fit and I have had a couple of near- misses when the contents have almost ended up on the floor. My only other comment concerns the size of the sharpener - it is suitable for standard drawing and writing pencils, not for larger diameter items.
