5.0 out of 5 stars A4 Landscape Binder, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These things are particularly difficult to come by as all A4 binders seem to be in Portrait format. The Landscape ones are not as cheap so expect to pay a premium. This one has a good tough cover with strong thick sprung rings that will stand up to a lot of use.

5.0 out of 5 stars TeckNet Kindle Case, 23 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These days it is unusual to find something that gives really excellent value for money while at the same time proving itself to be more than capable of doing the job it was designed to do. My wife has has her Kindle in one of these for over six months. There is no sign of it wearing (despite constant use in and out of the home) and it has provided superb protection against damage.
Nice to see that the Kindle can be charged without fiddling around trying to line up poorly positioned cut outs (as so often happens with phone cases). I can recommend this item with 100% confidence - well done TeckNet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cole & Mason Salt Grinder, 6 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We seemed to get through more salt grinders than salt! some broke but most suffered from the grinding mechanism (some were only made of hard plastic) wearing out. The Cole & Mason uses ceramic grinders, if they are going to wear out it will take a long time. The rest of the grinder appears well made and functions easily. This is certainly a case of spending more to save in the long run.

5.0 out of 5 stars George Martin, 17 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably one of the most mixed bags of music on any CD that I own. Its highlight has to be the brilliant 'Theme One' stirring memories for those of us who had to get up early to start work back in the 60's & 70's it was used as the daily opening theme for Radio One in the Tony Blackburn Era. For anyone who may be interested the BBC's very own Brian Matthew reckons that Martin had this written and one afternoon at Abbey Road after he finished recording Sergeant Pepper and before sending the orchestra home he got them to put this track down. Very possible as it seems its introduction carrys on where 'Day In The Life' leaves off. You can make your own mind up on that.

Quite simply George Martin has been one of the most brilliant and influential people in the UK music business for many years, his son Giles carries the family tradition on. This CD is a fantastic tribute to a music legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars iPod Wallet does what Apple couldn't, 15 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite why Apple decided to set itself the challenge of giving the G4 iPod such a highly polished rear casing cover is a mystery, perhaps they thought they were going to be used as lenses for the Hubble telescope. It shows every fingerprint and mark and in a very short time could end up looking like the proverbial dog's breakfast. We bought our daughters iPods for birthday presents but refused to let them take them out of the house until they had covers on them. There are loads of silicone skins that do the job but these leather ones are brilliant. They provide real protection from everyday wear and tear and would probably lessen damage if dropped (although we haven't been brave or daft enough to try a practical test). They are well worth the small extra cost over the plastic and silicone ones which by design have to have a very thin edge lip to avoid covering the screen - it also makes them prone to flipping off. There is the added bonus of the 'picture frame' type stand on the back which allows them to stood up on a desk or table. I would recommend these and the seller to anyone - ours arrived next working day - you can't ask for much better then that!


The Essential Andy Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Williams, 28 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are a few Williams 'Greatest Hits' or 'Best Of' compilations around but in my mind this one is the best of all by a very long way. Starting with his 'Can't Take my Eyes Off You' collaboration with Denise van Outen, made when he was 75 and one of the best male/female one-off duets around. Van Outen gives the song its punch and muscle alongside an ageing and weakened voice Williams. Interesting to hear his earlier 1968 solo version alongside and compare how his voice has changed. This is one of the few compos with 'Home Lovin Man' on it, this is music to cheer you 'Up-Up and Away'. The BBC 2010 Six Nations Rugby coverage gave a new boost to 'Happy Heart'.

'Can't Get Used To Losing You' 'Spooky', 'Aquarius' and so it goes on - 24 tracks that even if you're not a true Williams fan will have you drumming on the steering wheel even more than you did to Drivetime Rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain, 22 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a little gem - I read all the camera mags and few had a bad word to say about it. Image quality is Canon at its best. Its hard to see how they pack so much into such a compact space. I have a EOS400 SLR and this produces an equivalent 10 megapix image albeit without the luxury of RAW and all the SLR bells and whistles. Only minor let down is the zoom range which is less than many others on the market. For the price this is a total bargain

5.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop CS4, 9 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably one of the best Photoshop books for those who already know the basics, if you don't then Photoshop CS for Dummies is a good starting point before moving on to this one. It is a very heavy volume and best used as a reference manual - don't get any ideas about sitting on the train and reading it from cover to cover and then going home to work your magic, this book has a lot of info and a DVD and unless you are someone who uses CS4 everyday as part of your work don't even think about remembering everything it covers. Perfect for solving those niggly problems you often get but cannot sort out.
