Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not far into the future, everyone uses a prediction programme called ClearVista. Fill in the questionnaire and the software will search everything known about you to come up with a percentage to the question you ask about yourself, or anything else for that matter; imagine, "OK Google, will I pass my driving test?". (As a result of this, there is no longer any gambling.) One person to fill in the top rate thousand question form is Laurence Walker, a man running for Presidential nomination, who wants to know what his chance of success is. Walker has paid for ClearVista's premium package that also cobbles together a prediction video.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Why is it that whenever you look for an iron, they all seem to come in some variation of blue, or white with blue flashes? (Yes, I know not every iron follows this practice but the shelves do appear to be full of these.) Those nice people at Philips have bucked that trend with this purple offering.

Whilst this doesn't have the weight and gadgets, etc. of a high-end iron, it doesn't come with that equally high price tag either. This might be at the lowest end of the scale in monetary terms but it does do what it's made for. Fill it through the nose and the plate will be ready to use by the time you've laid out your first item of clothing on your board. Considering its weight it… Read more
