5.0 out of 5 stars Game of the year in my book, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Im a big fan of Assassins Creed. I can spend hours playing it without doing any of the missions.
Whoever thought of combining it with Naval Battles and Sea Shanties is a genius.

You will end up singing Sea Shanties in your sleep.

I'd already played it on x360 before i got it on PS4. Theres not much difference. Some of the ground cover shrubbery is obviously a bit more complex. But most of the graphics appear to be built for x360. It's not a showcase for next gen. The frame-rate is much better on PS4. But otherwise its basically the same game.


Remington NE3350 Angled Hygienic Trimmer
Remington NE3350 Angled Hygienic Trimmer

2.0 out of 5 stars Its a bit rubbish., 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From the other reviews i was expecting something more powerful.
The trimmer attachment you can barely tell you are using. The motor is week.
And the rotating handle/switch/quick release fall apart if you turn it the wrong way design is stupid.

Build quality resembles some cheap OEM off a market stall. Not something id associate with this brand.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much use yet. But it's early days., 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to get the full PS4 experience.
Its not really worth it. Nothing uses it.

Design wise its nice enough. But the picture quality isn't as good as id hoped for.
The lack of software support is the killer.

Using facial recognition to sign in isn't practical, since you are still going to use a PIN, if you value your credit card details.

The built in mic for Voice Command is the only bit I'm using at the moment. They should have put it in the Controller. Instead of the speaker.

The only thing I'm happy about is i saved money buying it from Amazon, as Game were charging silly money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic design. Makes chopping onions much easier., 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ive been looking for one of these for ages. My mum used to have one, no idea where she'd bought it,
when i saw this on Amazon, it was an instant buy. It didn't disappoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elegant design, window in the back, but day wheel and instruction manual is German Only., 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this watch as a gift for my dad. Something special. Overall I'm happy with it.
It has a clear and simple face, with elegant gold numbers. The leather band is a good combination of colours.
A nice looking watch.

On the positives, there is a window in the back, (not shown in the pictures on the website),
where you can see the complicated movement inside, a nice feature i wasn't expecting.

On the negatives, the day wheel is German language only. As is the entire instruction manual.
The description on the website didn't really mention this. I could live with it. But I expected better.
I managed to work out how to set the date and time. But I've no idea how you would adjust it, if its running fast or slow.

Also the first watch i received was faulty. One of the gold numbers had fallen off the face, and was loose inside the glass. I consulted a jeweller, to see if it could be repaired. But they told me it would have to be sent back.
But kudos to Amazon's Returns Service, they got me a replacement with minimal hassle. Really good customer service. Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to learn Python. Read this book., 9 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Learning Python (Paperback)
This is the book to read to learn Python.
Easy read, cover to cover, teaches you everything you need to know and more.


Perl Testing: A Developer's Notebook
Perl Testing: A Developer's Notebook
by Ian Langworth
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Learn how to Test in Perl, 9 Feb. 2012
Im a big fan of the O'reilly 'Animal Books'. But i must admit that i find the "A Developers Notebook" series a hard read. The writing is sketchy, and can be hard to follow. (Oh and the squared paper and coffee stains is naff.)

I bought this book as i was having trouble getting into testing.
The selection of test modules can be bewildering. Perldoc lacks the depth of explanation to get you started.
Unfortunately this book is sufficiently difficult a read that it went back on the shelf for many months.
Recently, i broke through this impasse, and have now worked my way through the book.
It has good coverage of the topic, and is probably enough to allow me to start testing.


Intermediate Perl
Intermediate Perl
by Randal L. Schwartz
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect companion to 'Learning Perl'., 9 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Intermediate Perl (Paperback)
After reading "Learning Perl" i thought i knew enough to write Perl programs, but felt some knowledge was missing.
Theres a lot more to modules, when you start writing them.

"Intermediate Perl" picks up where Learning Perl left off. At the same pace, and quality of narrative.
It fills in all the gaps with References, Namespaces, Modules, and OO Modules.

It's a must buy if your writing large Perl programs.


Be-Active Triangle 2 pc Lightweight Nylon Cue Case wih Burgundy Flash
Be-Active Triangle 2 pc Lightweight Nylon Cue Case wih Burgundy Flash

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic, but does the job, 9 Feb. 2012
Its not the nicest looking case i've seen, but it does the job.
It can also be a bit fiddly to insert the two halves of the cue either side of the divider.
and you have to watch you dont catch the cue tip in the zip.

(when i bought this, the picture was wrong, but it has since been corrected)

5.0 out of 5 stars Im not an expert, but this is the best pool cue i've ever used., 9 Feb. 2012
Fed up with the poor quality pool cues at our local pool hall,
i saw this cue on amazon and thought it was worth a gamble.

It turned out much better than i expected.
The cue looks stunning, it well balanced, glides really smoothly,
and the grip is superb.

Check out the different colors too. The blue is stunning.
