These are a reasonably cost-effective substitute for the Apple version. There are two differences: it is a bit bulkier; not really a problem. And it has a blue light (see picture showing the blue plastic). This is actually pretty bright and rather annoying. I don't see the point.

No particular comments really. Reasonably robust; did our removal job for us. One thing to watch: when you have applied the tape, press down on the flexible tongue - otherwise it won't cut the tape.

4.0 out of 5 stars Black Russian or Black Turk?, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Black Russian (Kindle Edition)
In 1899 a black American goes to Russia, becomes a successful showman and on the eve of the revolution even becomes a Russian citizen. The research into Frederick Thomas's background in Mississippi is quite interesting especially I'm sure for American readers. But the account of his time in Russia is mostly a catalogue of business ventures. An enormous amount of research has evidently gone into this work and it reads well. However, I didn't feel I came away better informed about this crucial period of Russian history. As others have commented you don't get that much of a sense of the man either, although that may be due to limitations inherent in the available material. For me the most surprising thing, though, was that the last half of the book is in fact about Thomas's time in Constantinople and not about Russia at all. Again this is mostly a catalogue of business ventures to which are now added run-ins with the American consular authorities. From the Treaty of Versailles the Allied Powers controlled Constantinople until handing over to the new Turkish Republic in 1923. This fascinating period of Turkish history is now largely forgotten in the English-speaking world and could have benefitted from a fuller treatment - but then the book would have been even less about Russia.

What you see here is the actual device. Very handy if you don't have built-in wifi. At 150Mbps this isn't the fastest device but fine for everyday use.

The problem is we all travel with at least a tablet and a phone now and if there is more than one of you that is immediately at least 4 devices. With this device you can charge everything at the same time and use different cables. Great

My review applies to all the Dutyhook stainless steel products. You can order very small, very precise quantities. The price is reasonable and the items arrive very quickly. No fuss. Great service. Thank you!

I have a wooden seat in a damp toilet. The old chrome hinges had corroded so a brass replacement seemed like a good idea. Seems to work perfectly.
