MediaDevil Magicscreen Screen Protector: Crystal C&hellip by MediaDevil
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 5 July 2013
I cleaned my S4's screen using the cloth included with the protector (and my breath to moisten the screen); then followed their instructions for application of the protector. No problems with bubbles or trapped dust (then again I ensured the screen was perfectly clean before attempting to apply it). Couldn't be simpler and it looks great.

One other thing to point out was I bought it on Wednesday afternoon, received a notification a couple hours later that it had been dispatched (I thought "right, sure it has...") and received it the next morning - all with the standard free shipping. Probably the quickest I ever received anything ordered with free shipping from Amazon.

I use it mainly for reading news articles and technical books. The news articles I paste into Word and save as HTML, then send them to the kindle email for transfer to my kindle. Books instead I mostly convert ones I already own in PDF format.

Nothing imo can replace the feel and sight of an actual book; however I personally am unable to accumulate a book collection due to my fluid situation, and am actually in the process of selling off my 200+ book library. In this situation it's very useful to be able to have my book and papers… Read more
Secrets of Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs th&hellip by Greider
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 16 Sep 2011
First of all don't be put off by the title: this is not a conspiracy theory book. It's actually a mostly descriptive account of the Federal Reserve during Paul Volker's reign. It starts just before Volker is appointed, progresses a bit and then goes back to the beginning of how and why the Fed was created. It follows the Fed from its beginning and eventually winds back up where it started, and the current (at the time) narrative resumes. It ends around the end of Volker's term, 1987 I think.

The book talks about a number of things, but mainly the effects of Volker's monetary policies on the real economy, and the relationship between the Fed and the elected government… Read more
