2.0 out of 5 stars US layout, not UK layout, 10 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You'll be okay with this as long as you are happy that it is a US layout keybaord and you have to set your computer to US English.
To get the keys to correspond correctly, you have to go to control panel, choose languages and then choose keyboard layout and choose US (English) and following this, all keys will work as shown on the keyboard. Otherwise you don't get a forward slash and a number of keys don't do what is on them. I have yet to test this out with using special characters on the US setting and I am concerned taht preprogrammed settings for Times_CSX font may not work properly. I think it is wrong that the seller does not make it clear in the product description that this is a US layout keyboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 15 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant book by a brilliant author who is sadly no longer alive. Someone I would have loved to have met. If you are interested in ancient Indian culture and the development of rituals then this book is essential reading. Every essay in here is innovative, insightful and well-written.

The film was very good apart from trying to make out mumbled dialogue.


Emotion: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Emotion: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
by Dylan Evans
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Okay, 6 Jun. 2016
This is certainly a beginner's book and anyone who has read widely in philosophy and cognitive science will be aware of much that is in here and probably, like myself, will take issue over a number of things and feel that some new readers may be misled by the more cavalier comments. If you have no background in the subject I recommend the book as interesting but urge any reader to be careful. Here are a couple of examples - the author briefly mentions John Searle and David Chalmers, two of the very big names in modern philosophy of mind who deserve far better treatment than having their mind experiments labelled as "too much thought and not enough experiment". This crass and unwarranted assertion only shows that Dylan Evans has not read either of these philosophers to any great degree and clearly does not understand the role of a thought experiment in modern philosophy. A glaring omission in this book is any reference to the work of Jesse Prinz and I'd urge anyone interested in emotions to read this author's work. I agree with Evans positive stance on emotion and the holistic nature of the system underpinnings of emotion (pace Damasio who does get a slight mention) but the issues surrounding robots developing emotions are far more complex and problematic than is made clear in this book. In this respect, "The Character of Consciousness" by David Chalmers is very important as it poses the single greatest challenge for a proper explanation of emotion and consciousness to be found anywhere in the literature. All in all, not the best VSI out there and I've been more impressed with other authors in terms of both their knowledge and style but it still worth reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the most awful remakes I've ever seen, 4 Jun. 2016
This review is just of the film itself as I would never consider watching it again on any format. I saw it on the cinema and it is an applling remake full of cliches, especially the daft "race against time" ending that must have had HG Wells revolving in his grave at near light-speed velocity. Apart from a couple of interesting scenes this has nothing that the 60's film didn't have. Sadly, nobody has ever made a film that is true to the book so if you like the idea of this film I suggest you read the book first. Maybe one day someone will do justice to HG Wells' classic but we may need a time machine to go and see it.

Overpriced ripoff - buy the inks, syringes and latex gloves and refil your cartridges yourself - save yourself a small fortune like I have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful film my parents hated, 2 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lunchbox [DVD] (DVD)
My brother loved this film, we loved this film but I bought this DVD for my parents who hated it. You need to be interested in other cultures and be happy with a real life drama that does not have dramatic events in it. It is a lovely film that brims with love, joy, sadness, tragedy, bitterness and sweetness all together.

Over-priced rip off. Buy the inks and refill your cartridges yourself. There are plenty of places to buy the inks and syringes and there are instructions and videos online. It is a messy job so use disposable latex gloves but it will save you a fortune if you use a printer regularly.

5.0 out of 5 stars She loves it, 2 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
She loves it so that's great and it smells good to me too ... it is a strong scent though so if you're after something subtle this is not for you. The real plus is the naturelness of the fragrance comapred to the high street rubbish.
