Zagg Zaggkeys Folio Black Hinged Tablet Case and Back-Lit Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad Air / iPad 5
Zagg Zaggkeys Folio Black Hinged Tablet Case and Back-Lit Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad Air / iPad 5
Price: £80.21

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical and good value for money, 15 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a techno-phobe, but even I managed to marry up this keyboard to my iPad Air. It has proved invaluable because I needed it to produce large amounts of written work, via a downloaded word-processing app. However, there is no keyboard manual issued with it, so you have to select the appropriate demos on Youtube,etc.
One niggling aspect; some of the keys seem to be a bit 'sticky', requiring you to give certain keys an extra firm touch. My o and f are the main culprits! Otherwise, I'm really pleased with the product and am continuing writing short stories with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dutch Master?, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rembrandt (DVD)
Wonderfully creaky black n' white film set mostly in Amsterdam, following the tribulations of Rembrandt, who is at this point already established as a successful artist. However, there is a certain emphasis on his personal/domestic life so any illumination on his ideas, inspirations and techniques is sadly lacking. The leading actor has an authoratitive air and carries the part admirably, but I can't help thinking that a well-presented modern rendition is screaming out to be realised (film directors, producers and money-men take note). Or a Beeb costume drama perhaps? This Master is permanently in vogue and justifies a contemporary version of his story, and to explain why he still stands out from the crowd.

This review is from: War Horse [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Bought this film for the benefit of a horse-mad teenage daughter, and although sections of the film are painfully twee it nevertheless had the intended effect. A First World War story sanitized for family entertainment.

For anyone who needs to know the basics of cooking; you are guided through the recipe with simple illustrations. Not too challenging for the intimidated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 4 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this DVD to inspire a group of friends/mature students who want to develop their artistic/painting skills (we meet for one art lesson a week at my home).
They found the film inspiring and have since been producing some interesting compositions. I think it has encouraged them not to feel as though they should produce 'correct' drawings (representational, shading, perspective etc), but to develop an eye and style with which they feel comfortable, and to use a variety of media accordingly.
