4.0 out of 5 stars Hand held magnifyer, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my elderly mother, and she really finds it useful for reading in place of her glasses. The magnifyer is clear and large enough for general reading and household jobs. It is constructed of good quality materials and the built in light is useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice ring, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ring arrived promptly and was as advertised, perhaps slightly rounder in appearance than the image on the site but not significantly. The central stone is an excellent colour and the diamond surround is very sparkly. All in all, very pleased.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow to get started, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a fairly promising pilot, this series gets off to a slow start. The story is actually very simple but the "action" is spread over too many episodes. Would have benefited from a severe edit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good little camera, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these as a bit of a toy, i tried it on a scuba diving trip in January (20m +) and was surprised and pleased by the results. The screen is very small, but is fine for use as a view finder, though reading the menus underwater is beyond my middle-aged eyes. the buttons can be a bit stiff with the case closed, but it did get easier with practice. Overall for the price a good little camera.

The Trade of Queens (Merchant Princes)
The Trade of Queens (Merchant Princes)
by Charles Stross
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars Merchant Princes series, 24 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series started with an interesting and original premise which the first book started to explore. However as it went on the series degenerates into a rather tiresome soap opera, in which plot is sacrificed for complexity, apparently for its own sake. The characters are not developed and become less and less credible. By the last book i'd frankly lost interest in them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Geo computer OK but has problems, 3 May 2010
Contrary to the other review i have had a Geo for several years and it is fine and can easily be set for metric or imperial units. It also has one of the most generous algorithms giving more time at depth. Overall i was very happy with it. However there is a problem with the battery life. My first battery lasted 2 years, after replacement it never worked properly agaim and would reset itself at random intervals. I contacted the manufacturer who (to their credit) replaced it with a new one. After 2 months in a drawer the low battery warning came on. After battery replacement by Oceanic (again no charge) it flooded on its first dive. I know two other divers who have a Geo, like me they like the computer, but one of the two has also had problems with low battery warnings and random resets.
