The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared
The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read, 10 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very funny story about a 100-year old man "escaping" from his care home. Although his adventures "on the run" are very entertaining, it is the details of his earlier life that bring all the surprises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Put back what's missing from Windows 7, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am delighted with my upgrade to Windows 7, and everything seems to be faster, neater and more stable. The only problem that I had was not having the address book and Calendar functions of Outlook. I did rather miss Word, too!

This solved the problem beautifully, and at a good price. I now have Word, Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint, Publisher and Access.

I keep my diary and address book in Outlook, and my BlackBerry synchronises perfectly, just like it used to back when I was using XP and Office 2000.

If you're dithering about purchasing this, for the same reasons that I was - don't! It's well worth buying. Arrived by return, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific bargain., 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little webcam is extremely good value at the price that I paid. So much so that I recommended it to my daughter and son-in-law, who also bought one. Indeed, when it came to ordering theirs the price had dropped by a pound or so!
The camera itself could hardly be simpler to set up. It plugs into a USB socket, and the microphone plugs into the microphone socket of your PC. There is a mini-CD of software provided, but Windows will recognise it anyway. It works beautifully with Skype, giving better results than more expensive webcams. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 (64 bit), and feared that there might be compatibility problems, but that was not the case.
Definitely worth the 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adrian Rollini as great as ever., 14 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 1924-1927 (Audio CD)
This is one in a series of excellent CDs containing transcriptions of 78s from the 1920s and 30s. This particular disc has an all-star line-up, including Adrian Rollini (of course) and Tommy Dorsey. Just superb, and nicely transcribed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real bargain, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product was purchased as a replacement TV, rather than buying a set-top box.
When it arrived, I actually checked the packaging, (and my original order) to make sure that I hadn't been sent something of superior spec by accident! It has more extras than expected, a good picture and doesn't have the "tinny" sound often associated with small flat-screen sets. All this and a built-in DVD drive! Set-up was simplicity itself. Literally plug in, switch on, click on "yes" and wait about 3 minutes. All digital channels received, and on in indoor aerial. If you want a cheap second set, this is the one to go for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointing., 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complete Recorded Works (Audio CD)
Obviously, recordings made in the 1920's are going to have a surface noise problem, but modern "clean-up" techniques normally remove a lot of this. This collection suffers quite badly with hiss, but there are so many rare recordings on it that it is still worthwhile for the serious collector. The album artwork is disappointing, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat little charger, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this charger to save carrying the one supplied with my tablet around with me. It works extremely well, and has the added bonus of a removable adaptor tip, so that it can also be used with other compatible devices, using different plug sizes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice quality item at good price., 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this cable for connecting my Tablet PC and my video camera to the TV. It gives a superb high definition image, and doesn't cost a fortune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An illustrated copy of the complete works of F. Scott Fitzgerald, on your Kindle, without having to visit a bookshop, for just over a pound? Obviously worth buying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, but I haven't used it to its full extent yet., 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well written guide, but as using it decided me against upgrading to Windows 7 for the present, I haven't made full use of it yet. If/when I do, I shall certainly use this book to help me.
