5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality counterfactual history!, 20 Jan. 2015
Saw this recently, and loved the concept. The book was always one of Dick's masterpieces in need of visualization, and so I really hope Amazon go all the way with this and deliver a whole series. As counterfactual history ideas go, The Man in the High Castle is one of the most enticing, and suggests so many intriguing possibilities. Nazi's, be they real or imaginary, have never been beaten as villains, and for good reason. Daring to produce a show where America has been defeated by the Nazi regime is a brave, creative move. More please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touch one button for a brew!, 10 Jan. 2015
We we're given on of these as an Xmas gift, and at first thought it was a solution to a problem that didn't need solving. However, after a few uses we found that it was actually a really good gizmo. We like it so much that if it eventually broke down we'd get another. Press one button and the Hot Cup boils only one cup at at time, usually in under a minute. Doing two or three cups in a row still only takes about as long as a kettle. The amount of water dispensed can easily be adjusted between small, medium and large cups/mugs, and there are very few drips after dispensing. Should you accidentally chose the wrong setting, dispensing can be stopped with a touch. The Hot Cup is ideal for its purpose and would be especially good for anyone who has difficulty with their hands. Once filled we estimate it would dispense 4to 6 cups before needing a refill. Now, we use it in preference to our kettle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior quality case., 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superior quality case, feels nice and sturdy, grips the phone firmly and feels good in the hand. For those who favour the flap down style of case, this is a winner. I must also commend Membrane Store, who when I raised concerns over the delivery of an xmas order, responded immediately, sending a replacement out just to be sure. That is what I call excellent service.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice bright case, flimsy inner sleeve., 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On the plus side the case is nice and bright, for those who like that kind of thing, and the price is very reasonable. The phone clips in easily, and seems to be firmly held. The case comes with a matching full size stylus, and a screen protector, making it good value. The one proviso we noticed was that the material used on the inner sleeve, where credit cards can be stored, is very thin indeed. My impression is that I would not expect it to stand up to having cards pulled out and pushed in for a long period, without tearing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice stocking filler. Stock based in China., 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Three times now, I've tried to write an informative and honest review of this product. Each time Amazon has rejected that review. What I want to say about it is totally honest and provable, yet somehow breaks the rules. So, I will try again, letting the title speak for itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purple reign...with a hoodie, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as an xmas gift, so the 'how does this product fit' bit - which Amazon forces reviewers to chose from, is at best a guess at this stage. What I can say with confidence is that the garment looks exactly as it is presented, and under daylight the shade of purple is most pleasing. The quality of fabric seems good, not too heavy not too light, and the stencil of the VW Camper is a professional job. Therefore, it should last many more than a few washes. All in all, a great buy for the VW enthusiast who likes a pull-on style hoodie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal, accept no substitute., 14 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as a gift, having seen a Thin Lizzy tribute band earlier in the year who got the volume completely wrong, temporarily deafening most of the audience. As always, it's better to see (and hear) the originals. This is a pretty good DVD, featuring most of Thin Lizzy's classic hits performed at the peak of their powers. A great trip down memory lane for those of us who remember, and possibly the best way to show younger rock fans what made Thin Lizzy such an iconic band. Accept no substitute.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gung-ho Boys Own adventure!, 14 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this and a another from the same source as a stocking filler. Great for young and not so young fans of a classic genre. These books collect several stories in each edition, and aside from being a greater depth (obviously) have the same dimensions as original magazines. That being slightly shorter and wider than a DVD. The stories are all Boys Own style adventures, which do not really glorify war but definitely glorify the military. Unlike the real military, there is not serious swearing.
