1.0 out of 5 stars Tears before bedtime, 14 July 2012
Well that's gone and ruined the evening - five minutes after excitedly opening the official totalitarian toy of the 2012 Olympics and turning my back, the children are in tears and He-Man has sustained a fatal fall down the stairs.

Apparently he looked at Wenlock 'something funny'.

Whilst showering.

We've tried to recover the footage from Wenlock's built in security camera, but he claims to have lost the tape.

BTW. Just heard that my Group 4 Security action figures aren't going to arrive in time for the opening ceremony!

Quite possibly the slowest card reader ever made. On my Mac it makes more than a minute to recognise a card, several minutes to list the contents of the card and as for transferring stuff - well you'd better not be in a hurry to get those images.

Card after card after card reports problems after being put in this reader - at first I assumed my cards were all failing, but then it became clear - it's just the reader.

This is not a device I would trust with any of my data ever again.

If like most people you stick to the recipes and don't have the confidence to make MAJOR changes, the results come as a huge disappointment. Most of the recipes don't look complicated, and they shouldn't be - but the quantities, cooking times and temperatures are all over the place. It's only when you find yourself confronted with a… Read more
