5.0 out of 5 stars So danged catchy!, 5 Oct 2010
Heard this in the club a couple of times and had to download it. Can't believe how catchy it is! You just have to get up and dance when it comes on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant song... But too short!, 5 Oct 2010
This review is from: Dynamo (Radio Edit) (MP3 Download)
Have fallen completely in love with this track after spotting it on a music channel last night. Proper Jackie Wilson 50's rock 'n' roll style track, but just as you start getting into it it finishes! Looking forward to see what he does next!

4.0 out of 5 stars For the money, not a bad little product, 5 Jan 2010
Well, I normally use elegant touch nails, but thought I'd give these a go for the money!

Double check though, as these are the bare ones (the slightly brown/flesh tone) not the pink as shown in the picture, I have raised this with the seller.

The pink ones would probably look a little nicer, but for the money decided I'd just use these ones.

The glue is great, very sticky and lasted 3 days already. It comes in a standard small thin tube but there is no pin to pierce it included, but there is a square file to cut off the corners which are very sharp

My reason for 4 stars? The sizes of the nails are limited. I normally get 2 sets of nails out of every set of elegant touch nails, and they come in varous sizes including repeats as with most people the 3rd and 4th finger need the same nail size. There are no repeats in here, 10 sizes and 2 of each size. Some of these also go very, very large, and there aren't as many of the small, this may be perfect for you so don't be put off. I guess for the money, only getting one set out of these is enough.

So, if you're looking to just give false nails of a reasonable length a go without spending a fortune, give it a go!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but I want more!!!, 3 Nov 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I really enjoyed this game, graphics were excellent (apart for the way the characters seemed to constantly need the toilet...) gameplay simple to understand, story with more twists and turns than a Norfolk bypass and battles tricky enough to hold you for the 3 minutes they last.

Basically you play Lock, a young man aspiring to be an Archineer like his parents. Archineers are the people who build the walls to defend the city against the evil clockworks.

You start with roughly 2-5 minutes (depending on the level) to build up walls, traps and towers, built using "source" and bits of scrap you ifnd during battles. The Tutorials are in game and its very easy to get the hang of, but designing some of the towers/traps etc can be a tad tricky, but nothing too difficult.

You then go into a 3-5 minute battle in which your walls and your own fighting power have to hold off the oncoming Clockworks. You can repair the towers and walls, but not rebuild them so multi tasking is essential to keep them upright until the battle is over.

As you progress you get stronger walls, traps, towers and helpers, but the enemies also become stronger and stronger and more varied with everything from flying ones, to ghosts!

Its also got a brilliant story line which has you guessing right up til after the credits have ended.

I have been told the multiplayer is excellent, but haven't tried myself.

I would advise this game to anyone who enjoys games like the battle and defense side of Age of Empires, although no where near as advanced and complex it has similar qualities and is good for picking up and doing a level whilst on a break from everything else. Not being so complex you can then put it down again!

My only problem is how short the game is and the lack of sandbox mode. I'd like to see something where you build the best denfense and see how long you last rather than have to hold out for X time. The game is only 100 levels of 10 minutes total max, I bought it 4 days ago and have completed it already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy brain teasers? Love this game!, 3 Nov 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I have recently completed this game and loved every step of it

Apart from the odd puzzle which has the wrong answer (I think there's 2 out of the 100 odd in the game) the game is perfect: Wonderful graphics, excellent story line, and lots of puzzels!

You start by solving simple ones, like matching shapes to shadows, and go right up to the ones like "A farmer has a wolf, a chicken, and a bag of seed, he wants to transport them across the river on his raft that will only hold himself and one of the items/animals, what order must he take them over the river in" with plenty of sliding, liquid and number puzzles on the way.

The puzzles aren't boring either with the vast majority being "animated" so you actually complete them on screen, rather than having to have a pen and paper handy. You can also write on the touchscreen for the "worded" puzzles, no marks for showing your working out though! You do also get a set amount of hints and tried for each one, but there's no time limits on them, which is good for me with the sliding ones, never had the nack for those!

I found it great fun, especially with the ones you get stuck on and end up asking your family, then your friends, then your aunts uncles and cousins twice removed!

The story is entertaining and somehow relavent to the array of puzzles! Its wonderfully done.

I would advise this to anyone who's played and enjoyed games like Brain Training, or even RPG Puzzle Games like "The Longest Journey", "Sam and MAx", "Day of the Tentacle", or the "Monkey Island" Trilogy, as long as you enjoy the puzzle side of it of course.

I WOULD NOT ADVISE THIS TO ANYONE WHO USES A CHEAT OR WALKTHROUGH. It ruins the game!

Also, for anyone who's completed it, you can download extra puzzels with a WIFI connection, just to keep you going til the sequel!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 9 Nov 2007
I live in North Norfolk and use these transmitters with my IPAQ, iPod nano, Sony CD Player and Nokia N95

Pros: Looks brilliant, sleek and smooth design. Annoying ring is a mild buzz!

Cons: Can't use it unless you're in the car (unless you have cigarette chargers in your house...) Can't adjust the volume using the iPod though, you have to turn the actual stereo down, but you can do this on anything plugged in by the 3.5 mm

IN THE BOX:

You get the actual device with one lead for the cigarette car charger, and one for the adaptors (iPod and 3.5 mm headphone) these are permenantly connected

LOOKS:

Sleek, smooth and black. Looks smart if you like. The paint rubs off the buttons easily though. Super bright screen which displays the frequency or the setting (500, 501, 502 etc up to 509)

ROBUST:

Seems good, no breakages yet. Feels sturdy as well. the wires are thick so unlikely to snap or break
EDIT: I have noticed a couple of other people commenting on this, do be aware if you are constantly plugging it in and unplugging it the screw in the end may come loose, just keep an eye on it!

SOUNDS:

Sounds great! My only problem sound wise is that you can't adjust the volume using the device, you have to use the radio, which is ok but I've got used to being able to quickly make it quieten when I needed it to. You can do this with the 3.5 mm socket though... a slight design hitch?

BATTERY:

Very quick charge through this device to the iPod. My only problem with the battery life is that you can't run it without being plugged into a car. I use mine in my room and at work, which obviously are two places where I don't have cigarette chargers!

EXTRA FEATURES:

The charge of the iPod is the only one, which works fantastically. Its also optional so you don't over charge the iPod, brilliant

THE ANNOYING IN CAR WHISTLE:

...is actually more of a low buzz with this, and easily drowned out. Result!

CONCLUSION:

Worth the money if you are only planning to use it in the car, if you want to use it at home, or work its impossible. Good screen and easy to use/set up. Plays through all of my devices fantastically. Definitely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for..., 19 Oct 2007
I live in North Norfolk and use these transmitters with my IPAQ, iPod nano, Sony CD Player and Nokia N95

Pros: Does the job. Just.

Cons: Tacky looking, Usual Ringing, No Hold Button

IN THE BOX:

You get a USB Cigarette charger (worth a penny for that really) USB cord to connect to the transmitter and the unit. No rechargable batteries are included

LOOKS:

Tacky. Basically.

ROBUST:

It's survived two weeks in my car, so its gotta do pretty well. Battery cover doesn't fall off which is the normal problem. No hold button though so I have to leave it in my car because it drains power so fast if it switches on in your handbag

SOUNDS:

Not bad for a penny really, good sound in both speakers. Holds the signal well and if the radio adjusts it changes automatically (not all of them do, some just cut out) When you go through a bad signal patch it just cuts out in one speaker for a couple of seconds. It does make a horrible white noise if you move it or the MP3 Player whilst in use

BATTERY:

This is the only thing (apart from the hold switch) That I really am miffed about. I use Energizer 2000mAh batteries with this unit, but it can't charge through the cigarette charger as fast as it uses the battery life. Which means you either have to switch it off and let it charge for a bit every couple of days or change the batteris, which evades the point of having an in car charger! Also there is no indecator on the unit that it is charging (apart from the fact that it doesn't die every 4 hours!) It doesn't charge the MP3 player too.

EXTRA FEATURES:

Apparently there's a flashlight (!) I assume this means the backlight, which is pretty good, gives a nice sharp display, and a thermometor which is permenantly stuck on room temperature. Make your own choices here!

THE ANNOYING IN CAR WHISTLE:

It seems nearly all of these carry this "feature" which is why I list it seperately. With this one, on certain songs on my iPod its non exisitant because the song volume is loud, with the rest its just a dull ring and sits in the background. With my Nokia N95, there's no interference at all because you can turn it up loud enough to drown it out, the same with my IPAQ. My CD player works fine too.

CONCLUSION:

If you just want something that does the job, this is perfect, it comes with everything you need to get started. The only problems are the ringing (as standard), the battery and the lack of a hold button (but that's personal preference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny!, 4 Oct 2007
I bought this to fit my Nokia N95 to my windscreen for use of the satnav download.

Its brilliant, fits the Nokia N95 perfectly, but don't be mislead by the reviews saying they had to hack bits off to charge it. I just attached it to the windscreen upside down! The feet to stop it falling out normally are short enough to still open the phone and if you use the spring edges to grip it it doesn't fall out either.

I stuck it on yesterday and now refuses to move!

Brilliant buy, I would advise getting it if you're using the satnav download!
