ICARUS 8 Zoll eReader E800BK (E800BK)
I think it's a wonderful reader, especially the size. But...I just couldn't manage to work through the book-buying eco-system (and I'm quite technically clued in), and I've actually packed this product away and bought a 6 inch Kindle Paperwhite instead - which (although I would prefer if it was 8 inch) is a wonderful, easy reader with built-in light and long battery life.
If Icarus provided a MUCH clearer users' guide, that might help. I don't want to 'knock' the Icarus (if I did, I'd give it less than 3 stars), but I would recommend anyone who might have difficulties outside of buying from Amazon or one of the other 'standard'=format booksellers to stay mainline and buy a different… Read more
Njal's Saga (Penguin Classics) by Leifur Eiricksson
Njal's Saga (Penguin Classics) by Leifur Eiricksson
I first read the Pengun Classic's Njal's Saga when I was 15 years old. That's over 50 years ago. I still love it. The version I read was that by Magnus Magusson (sp?), and maybe naturally enough it's the one I prefer; but the Leifur Ericksson version of Snorri Sturrlesson's (sp?) masterpiece is a worthy enough follower.

Njal's saga covers a turbulent time in Icelandic history, and its scope extends way beyond that - to my own native Ireland, and the Battle of Clontarf, where some of the Burners fetched up (and one of… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars The best app for radio, 27 Feb 2014
I use my iphone almost all the time when I want to listen to the radio - usually national Irish or UK radio stations. I have several radio apps, but Tunein Radio is by far the quickest and most reliable, working fine when other apps such as RTE Player refuse to work. I recommend it over other radio apps.
My one gripe is that I can't play back specific podcasts of specific programmes from specific stations selected by me - at any rate, I can't find out how to do this. Maybe the app will let me do it but if it does, it isn't obvious.
But for live streaming, I recommend it highly
