5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic mini keyboard, with loads of practical uses and useful functions., 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this mini keyboard/mouse combo. The buttons have a great feel to them, and appear to be well made.
For the price, I absolutely couldn't fault it. I've seen some complaints on reviews for the previous model of this product, but I cannot say that their comments are applicable to this updated model.

I have been using it to control a portable raspberry pi system, which boots directly to the terminal. It worked instantly, with no additional driver installation required. The battery life appears sufficient, with an included charging cable. The keyboard also works (if switched on) whilst being charged.

The space bar is relatively small, but has only one physical switch in the centre of the button, as opposed to the 2 switches generally found in larger keyboards. This can sometimes lead to button presses not being recognised, if you hit the edge of the space bar, rather than the centre.

The backlight is toggle-able, so you can switch it on when required, and off to save battery life.

There are THREE ways to trigger mouse clicks on this device. At the far left hand side of the keyboard, there are large physical buttons for left and right clicks. There are also small physical buttons to the left and right of the track pad. Finally, the track pad accepts gestures, a single-finger tap to left click, and a double-finger tap to right click.

There are media buttons, such as volume, tracking, play/pause, etc., so this would be perfect as a "remote control" board for a media centre computer.

The shift button is not a "sticky toggle" - you can hold down the shift button as you would on a larger keyboard, as opposed to some of these wireless keyboards, which require you to press the shift key and required button in sequence.

Finally, I'd note for those who aren't expecting it, the product image depicting the trackpad gestures are actually printed on the device itself.


The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction
The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction
by William E. Shotts Jr.
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Very succinct, understandable book. Perfect for beginner and intermediate linux users., 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fantastic introduction for people wishing to learn the linux command line, containing anecdotal notes about historical *nix systems, and practical demonstrations of the commands covered. The book guides the reader through the process of creating a "playground" to safely play with commands, as well as warning the reader of potential disasters, practices to avoid, etc.

The book is very succinct and understandable, and I would say that it still provides some valuable information for even competent linux users, though the early chapters are certainly aimed at beginners.


Willow Tree Around You Cake Topper, Multi-Colour
Willow Tree Around You Cake Topper, Multi-Colour
Price: £28.09

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful, well made cake topper., 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This a beautiful cake topper. It is made of resin, but surprisingly is quite heavy. It has a solid round base, with an included removable plastic barrier (as the resin itself is painted, and not designed for direct contact with food). I'm very happy with it.


Lowepro Toploader Pro 70 AW II Bag for Camera - Black
Lowepro Toploader Pro 70 AW II Bag for Camera - Black
Price: £66.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly built for purpose. Ideal for larger cameras, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfectly sized to hold a larger camera with or without a battery grip. I keep a Nikon D750, with a 28-300mm lens attached in the main compartment, a spare memory card or two in the purpose-designed spaces, and a spare battery in the top compartment.

There is a wet weather cover towards the bottom of the bag, which can be stowed away.

There are D-ring loops to easily connect clip-ons, like a lens wipe, etc.


Atdoshop(TM) Privacy Anti-Spy LCD Screen Protector For HTC One M8
Atdoshop(TM) Privacy Anti-Spy LCD Screen Protector For HTC One M8
Offered by Malloom®
Price: £1.61

4.0 out of 5 stars A good privacy filter, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good privacy screen. Helps to protect against shoulder surfers, but by the nature of the product, the device screen appears dimmer, which presents a problem in strong sunlight. This is unavoidable for privacy screens, so I don't feel it's fair to lower my rating on this front. However, I have decided to give this a 4-star rating, as the user-facing surface is easily scratched. Fits the HTC One M8 perfectly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bored the cat in a minute or so, 25 April 2016

The cat played with it for about a minute, before catching on to the way it worked, and just grabbed hold of the wand.

It's also loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly fit for purpose., 25 April 2016

The product itself is great, works as a faraday pouch, blocks mobile phone signals without a hitch. Keep in mind that there are two compartments. There's a "secret" compartment that starts in the flap, just below the Velcro.


Mash'ems Avengers Figure (Multi-Colour)
Mash'ems Avengers Figure (Multi-Colour)
Price: £2.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't last long, poor quality., 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought 4 of these. Received Thor, Falcon, and 2x Ultron.
With the Thor figure, the helmet was ripped off within seconds (making him look like he had a bald patch), and the hammer was also ripped off by a younger kid.

With the ultron figures, there was nothing to rip off, so they survived, but the colour rubbed off by the end of the day.

The inside of the figures appears to be some kind of liquid, which leaked out of the Thor model.

They excited the kids as they anticipated opening the capsules, but for a product that claims to be able to withstand being "mashed, twisted and pulled", they were not at all resilient.

Burgess Excel Nuggets Blackcurrant and Oregano Guinea Pig Food 2 kg ( Pack of 2 )
Burgess Excel Nuggets Blackcurrant and Oregano Guinea Pig Food 2 kg ( Pack of 2 )
Price: £8.58

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for healthy, happy piggies, 9 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much better for Guinea Pigs than the muesli often sold at pet shops; these pellets contain everything a piggie needs, whilst also supporting their digestive health, and apparently tasting great!

Both of my boys jumped straight in with their new food, didn't need weaning off of their old diet at all. I'll definitely be sticking with this brand. I recommend buying some sort of Tupperware box designed for holding cereals, or a pet food bin, as these bags don't "re-seal" well. I've transferred a good amount into a plastic cereal box, and sealed the bag up again.
