3.0 out of 5 stars Nicholsons vs Pearsons, 31 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Couldn't decide which to use for recent cruise, so bought both, and ended up using both as each has significant deficiencies....
Nicholsons - by far the better map (OS) but occasional omissions. Continuation Page numbers on edges of maps are not always correct (pretty basic error). Too much historical information at expense of pragmatic information on where to moor, local services, etc. Infuriatingly, pubs indicated on map are not named or cross-referenced to their brief descriptions. I went through book before trip adding in the pub names and updating using Google.
Pearsons - better information and narrative. Maps are vitually unintelligible and useless (North is in a different direction on each page, for the convenience of those compiling the guide but making visualising and tracing a route almost impossible for the user).
Both guides are useful but woefully out of date: sometimes pubs have changed their profiles, closed or even been knocked down!
A more subjective and up-to-date guide to pubs (interactive?) must be possible.

Does exactly what it says on the tin! Reasonable size and good quality. Hope it doesn't rust in my leeky greenhouse.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kaspersky - great. TuneUp - cowboys, 5 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm yet another purchaser who bought this version of Kaspersky because of the additional TuneUp utilites.
Kaspersky works fine (as ever)
TuneUp do not bother to contact you when you use the key to request a download.
Furthermore, TuneUp do not respond to support requests submitted through their web-site, and they do not respond to emails asking why they are not responding!
If they were local, they would find me on their doorstep ready to ask them some questions in person - this kind of attitude towards someone who has bought their product in good faith really stinks. Kaspersky ought to reconsider their association with them.
