3.0 out of 5 stars Some words of warning,, 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
was hoping to avoid hitting my isp download limit by buying this on DVD, but no such luck. this is very much an on-line game and requires EA's online store Origin (+ update to the version on disk) + 5gb Game update before it will run.

The base game easily the best arcade racer since Burnout Revenge but is marred with a number of bugs including slowdown for most wanted intros (doesn't effect the race itself) and persistent quits to desktop (was particularly adverse to the shelby most wanted race) EA do not have any effective fixes in there forums and customer services suggested using task manager to shut every process that wasn't windows itself or the game, and when this didn't work unhelpfully informed me that Windows 8 is not supported.

It's also keen to start flogging you additional DLC from the moment you start playing which i found quite irritating.

therefore have very mixed feelings about a game whose core mechanics i love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Value earphone/hands free combo i could find., 17 Dec. 2012

Excellent sound, Robust and adaptable, the microphone extension has outlasted the ear buds by almost a year (and counting) and the answer button on the microphone has been a godsend when trying to answer a smart phone in the rain

disappointing product, dim, juicy and quite fragile, but easy to fit. Back light is actually pretty good, but the front light is horrendous

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and effective., 17 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These look good when there running, but they are a bit cheap and plasticy.
Bought them as a more suitable replacement for an old lady's bike than a similar product shaped like alien heads.
unfortunately after a few months the chrome paint was starting to flake and she went back to the alien lights instead

My 11yr old nephew loved these, more surprising was the fact that his grand mother was so impressed at how well they worked she bought some for herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars regardless of political leading this book is fascinating, well argued and worth while reading., 17 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of those books that has been passed around a lot since first reading (indeed i bought the kindle version as my paperback has been on constant loan to many different people since i finished it).
and everybody who has has come away thinking differently about the British attitude to the poor.
and is wonderfully bi-partisan it's scathing condemnation of the event's that bought us here.
too often books like this end up being so polemic that they offend rather than educate the people who would benefit most from reading it, fortunately this book sidesteps that conundrum admirably.

5.0 out of 5 stars the generic packaging belies the beautiful finish of this box., 17 Dec. 2012

while this box would be a lovely ornament in it's own right, it demands to be played with and it's tactile nature is a Joy.

This book is both intriguing and informative, expertly combining the personal accounts of the people that where there with the historical whole to create a book that as fascinating in microcosm as it is in the wider context, Painting a vivid picture of life at Bletchely Park.

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining but not as funny as you'd expect and not as poignant as you'd hope, 17 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this book has it amusing moments, but overall was slightly disappointing, with little to take away from it other than the fact that being an impossible perfectionist makes dating hard.
Not nearly as funny as his stand up (or even a good episode of 8 out of 10 cats) or poignant enough to justify the lack of funny.
