Cambridge Audio MINX GO Bluetooth Active by Cambridge Audio
I bought this just before going on holiday with a group of friends - basically I wanted something to play party music, which would enable everyone to connect wirelessly. It was perfect for the job! The bluetooth connection is really easy to set up, and the sound is excellent, given the size of the speaker. No, it is not going to be enough for a wild party, but easily the sound fills a good sized room. Since the holiday, I have used the speaker on business trips - connecting it to my tablet, so I can listen to music or watch television via iPlayer. Again - perfect for the job.

So, for example, when you select a programme to watch in the programme… Read more
Buying a House in France by Michael Streeter
Buying a House in France by Michael Streeter

To be honest, this book comes across as a poor update to a tired book. It lacks detail ... for example, glossing over huge areas of the country in a few pages. The price information on typical properties is pointless and superficial, as are the views on different regions, as expressed by local estate agents. We are about to embark on a purchase of a property in France, and this book has offered very little help.
