Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7" Standing Leather Origami&hellip by Amazon

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although the Origami is described as a leather case on first inspection it doesn't really look or feel like leather and it's only really the smell that confirms it. This is because the leather is tightly stretched and bonded onto a hard plastic shell. The inside also has a soft brush texture which must be a man-made material. One half of the case is a single solid shell and the other half is made up of a number of solid triangular panels held together by the leather covering. On its own the overall effect is slightly underwhelming and left me thinking, "Is this really supposed to be worth over 50 ?"

When I put the Kindle Fire HDX into the case it did snap firmly into… Read more
Planet Waves PW-CT-12 NS Micro Headstock Tuner by Planet Waves

I remember learning to play guitar and trying different tuning techniques: I used pitch pipes, piano keys, standard 5th fret relative tuning and eventually settled on using harmonics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still a Great Show, 23 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The long lasting panel game returns yet again. The format of the show hasn't changed much over the years and I don't think many would want it to but the format of these CDs may be becoming a little tired. Once again we get two CDs with two full episodes on each. There's no introduction or commentary or anything additional at all. Even the cover hasn't really changed for about 10 years. It's really money for old for the BBC. However, the shows themselves sparkle as always and it's Sue Perkins who really seems to be the star of this series.
