5.0 out of 5 stars Froopy! Mostly accessible., 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great collection of essays which use HHGTTG as the basis for exploring some philosophical ideas in an accessible way - apart from a few complex bits. But then, where would we be without our complex bits?
Highly recommended to all aspiring to membership of AUPSLOTP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. iPhone etc can get lost, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is such an excellent phone that I am astonished anyone would be daft enough to spend 3 x as much on an iPhone or suchlike. Android apps are better. Since getting this my iPod touch is redundant. Only downer is small internal memory combined with no slot for expansion sd - which has been rectified on later model. But there are workarounds which allow me to use a 1tb drive with much of my music collection, should I desire.

4.0 out of 5 stars does the job, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, it does what it says on the tin. Can be fiddly getting the phone off, almost impossible one-handed. No adjustable slant of course which makes it less convenient than some stands, but you can't have everything I suppose.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brain Salad Surgery (Audio CD)
Why no 5.1 mix? 2014 stereo mix on the DVD-A is fine. Original mix remastered is a bit of a mess. Haven't tried the others yet - alternate (shouldn't that be "alternative"?) is a bit of a curiosity I guess. But why, oh why, not take this opportunity to do a 5.1 mix? I guess I misread the original blurb when I pre-ordered this 3 disk set and assumed the DVD-A was for one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for hi-fi, but ok, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrible sound used with my main hi-fi, but fine with portable devices such as between my Nexus7 or mobile phone and non-BT mini-speaker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent budget plugs, 31 May 2014

Do the job well, the 2 screws holding strands and insulation independently. Plastic cover prevents risk of short-circuits to which all-metal plugs might be more vulnerable.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good but.., 31 May 2014

Great little device for creating a WiFi zone for sharing docs or listening to music from a hard drive (1tb maximum). It charges my mobile phone well, but struggles with my Nexus7.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too long for EasyAcc WiFi router/repeater, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice slim case with room for cable as well as the device, but significantly too long for the EasyAcc WiFi router I bought it for. The straps do hold it in place, but the case takes up more space than needed.

Offered by Paramount Zone COM UK

3.0 out of 5 stars Good.. but tends to leave scatterings, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fairly useful robot vac (I call mine K8..Kate!), which manages to dislodge a lot of stuff from my rugs which Vaxing doesn't. However, it obviously can't get into any corners which have obstacles such as floor lamps, and also tends to leave scatterings of dust and bits just off the edge of rugs unless it has space and time to approach from different directions. Hence, you do have to check up on its work, and occasionally 'top up' or give a more thorough manual vacuuming.

Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and readable, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent historical summary of the action in the middle east around the first world war, perhaps of particular interest to those interested in the story behind Lawrence of Arabia. An easy read too.
