5.0 out of 5 stars Removes the Russian Roulette of old wines, 16 July 2014
A must for opening wines of a certain age. This tool frees stuck corks which would otherwise disintegrate. Thoroughly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that unguarded!, 16 July 2014

Not as revealing as billed, but nevertheless lays bare the regimented life of a modern professional ruby player

5.0 out of 5 stars straightforward and unfussy, 20 Oct. 2011
Swatch replacement battery, delivered very swiftly indeed and at minimal cost. As easy as pie to install yourself. Why couldn't other purchases be as easy as this?

5.0 out of 5 stars a classic, 27 Aug. 2011
This seems to be a remanufactured version of the original Braun alarm clock, with a German movement but now assembled elsewhere. They have been gone too long from the marketplace, since they stopped production of these about a decade ago. Time will tell as to the quality of the new case, but initial signs are very good indeed. The design itself is perfect, with the classic Braun clock face with yellow second hand. The definitive small alarm clock

1.0 out of 5 stars useless, 27 Aug. 2011
I give this one star because they won't let you give fewer. This contraption doesn't appear to transmit a signal sufficiently clear or powerful to be picked up by the car's radio without extreme static. Tried various settings to home in on the signal but to no avail. Luckily it's cheap! I had also tried other i-trip gadgets years ago which are similarly poor, but wanted to try this in case the technology had been refined sufficiently. Now I know that the idea itself is a duffer. Avoid

5.0 out of 5 stars just what you need - so far, 10 Feb. 2011
When the battery on my Tom Tom Go died I fleetingly considered just buying a new one but I found a video on the internet of one being repaired, and thought it was worth a try. This battery plus a small toolkit to open up the Tom Tom was extremely promptly delivered (free shipping as I recall), and the battery was very easily swapped out over an hour's unhurried work. I played the video in front of me, pausing where necessary. As long as you're happy taking things apart and putting them back together, I wouldn't worry about this job. First class service, and so far (a month on) the battery performance is perfect

1.0 out of 5 stars tragic - but not for the right reasons, 15 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Trench [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
William Boyd scripted and, unfortunately, directed this. An observant and detached writer, he is no director. Blackadder Goes Forth is far more poignant

5.0 out of 5 stars revamped a genre, with an eye on past greats, 15 Nov. 2009
The James Bond franchise had lost its way and become a tired product placement campaign. Enter the Bourne Identity - a pacy straight-down-the-line spy thriller that was believable. Doug Liman does just enough, but no more, to keep the story going while paying multiple hommage to John Frankenheimer and Ronin (just watch both in quick succession). The result is unobtrusive and therefore compelling direction - contrast that with Paul Greengrass who by the Bourne Ultimatum has got handheld camera neurosis and has forgotten about subtlety. Very good indeed
