Haven't even managed to break the cellophane. Maybe I'm a bit too out of shape? :S

1.0 out of 5 stars Look into my eyes..., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
SPOILERS: Become a vegetarian.

That's really the crux of this book, and although it's very persuasive (as it's supposed to be), I like eating meat, just so long as it doesn't still look like a dead animal. I'm sure that if you follow his teachings, you'll do fine, but I just couldn't in all honesty do it. There is no quick, easy way to get thin. Reduce your portions, eat less sugar and reduce your fat. It's the only sensible way. Yes... I'm still on the podgy side, but I'm VERY slowly losing it by exercising will power, which is incredibly hard in this age of plentiful junk food.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not really up to the task., 4 Sept. 2014

Generically, SSDs are just the best thing to make you feel like you've got a new computer. Buy one, use Macrium Reflect to copy your data over, and watch as your Windows startup screen struggles to finish before the login prompt appears :) Just don't buy these. I had two of these and they both went down within warranty in quick succession, so I sent 'em back and have switched allegiance to the Samsung EVO SSDs instead. They're a bit faster too :)

Slik Mini Pro V (2-Way Head) Tripod
Slik Mini Pro V (2-Way Head) Tripod

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak, feeble & wobbly., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not strong enough, very easy to tip over with a Canon 40D and 17-85mm IS EF-S USM lens (<2kg) onboard. it needs restrainst for the legs to stop them spread-eagling, and it's just not robust enough. I sent it back and got a Velbon CX Mini for about the same price, and it is orders of magnitudes better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little tablet., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had the original Nexus 7 (V1), and this one is better, but not by a huge margin. It doesn't bring enough extra features beyond those mentioned below to the party to warrant the upgrade, and I sent mine back fairly soon after because its digitiser was behaving oddly. Android 4.3 on my old V1 made it fast and responsive, so you barely noticed much difference on the desktop (palmtop?), apart from the extra pixels sharpening up the display a little. Then 4.4 came along, and V1 is like wading through treacle now. :(

There are plenty of reasons to get a new Nexus 7, such as lightness, screen, the availability of prompt upgrades to the latest version of Android, but as usual with OS updates, as soon as your device has been superceded, it'll slow down with each successive update, so it might be worth keeping it stock.

Aliens: Colonial Marines: Limited Edition (PC DVD)

2.0 out of 5 stars Well... about this game. Y'see..., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the early Alien concepts looked a bit like a giant turkey (thank heavens for the late Mr Giger!), and this game seems to want to mimic that to a great extent. It's not a great game, but you probably already know that. At least it's cheap now, so use that as an excuse to treat yourself to some Alien splattering fun.


The Day The Earth Stood Still [Blu-ray] [1951]

5.0 out of 5 stars Gort & Klaatu get heavy with the neighbours., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The most awesome Sci-Fi film from the McCarthyist Cold War era gets the Blu-Ray treatment, and I couldn't be happier. It's more of an indictment of America's fear of us friendly Soviets than a film about aliens, and original Gort is just WAY cooler than the re-make, despite his oversized CHiPs helmet, and bendy diving suit limbs.

Michael Rennie was born for this role, and it shows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extending trumpet that takes great pics., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Super little lens for a super little camera, and takes good pics. The only thing wrong with it is that when it's extended, which is one the main reasons you'll be buying it, so that'll be a lot, it looks like you're rockin' a silver trumpet instead of a lens. The section with the thread for the lens hood is substantially larger than the extending barrel, so it looks a bit silly. Put your pride to the side, and you'll really like it though :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacement battery to replace your battery with., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great replacement when your stock battery swells up and stops holding its charge, which I understand is fairly common on the S4. Good job they're cheap then!

Charges well, lasts a day, will probably swell up in about 6 months. Can't wait! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars 12 months of gold for your PotatoBox!, 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A much cheaper way of getting a year's worth of PotatoBox Live for your PotatoBox. Enter the code in on your annoyingly time-consuming on-screen keypad using your controller, and off you tiddly-pop-pop! My problem was that I discovered PC gaming fairly soon after, and now I have 6 months unused subscription... ho-hum.
