ZS Stick Anywhere Multi Surface Suction Car Dashbo&hellip by BuyBits Addons
5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and useful, 26 Feb 2013
I've put off getting a proper satnav for years because I didn't want the hassle of sticking one on my windscreen, obscuring my driving visibility and having wires trailing everywhere. Thankfully, nice portable smartphones now have a satnav function, and with this mount you can stick yours in easy viewing, on your dashboard in no time.
So what will you think of this? A few pointers:
1. It has a sticky 'foot' so you can mount on your dashboard, or indeed anywhere with a reasonably (though not necessarily strictly) flat surface - see the photo.
2. You place your device between the two 'clamp-like jaws' and then close them with your fingers. They will close, but require the push… Read more

Being a fan of Black/Symphonic metal, I picked up this CD following recommendations that they were similar to Tristania. I spent weeks trying to get into this album, I really wanted to like it. But no, this really doesn't cut the mustard.

This is the fourth full length album from Norwegian synthpop/EBM/darkwave/Cybergoth (whatever you want to call it) outfit Apop. To my mind it is their best offering and a logical progression of their sound. The first two albums, 7 and The Apocalyptic Manifesto were much more dark and angry sounding than their next release, 'Welcome to Earth'. Harmonizer continues where WTE left off, continuing the 'futurepop' progression that Apop's music has been taking.
Fans of the EBM genre should find plenty of tracks to satisfy here. Although many have criticised this album from being too 'poppy', this is a solid release with plenty of danceable tracks. It needs to be understood that Apop have… Read more
