1.0 out of 5 stars Ludicrous, invasive permissions, 10 Sept. 2015
This review is from: Amazon Underground (App)
The control this application seeks over my phone and my personal information is quite unacceptable. Amazon is clearly thinking that if it gives away enough cheap apps I'll give up my rights to privacy and security. Sorry Jeff, I'm not that cheap.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not waste your money on this cleaner - £40 each time for beater bar that fails again and again and isn't covered by warranty, 30 Nov. 2014
Do not waste your money! Panasonic should be ashamed.

Not fit for purpose - i.e. as a domestic vacuum cleaner. The beater bar design is flawed and the plastic breaks at the same place, at the opposite end to the drive belt, again and again, is very expensive to replace and is not covered by the warranty. I imagine this is how Panasonic hopes to make its money. I have never known a vacuum cleaner beater bar to be engineered like this and to fail again and again and again. The beater bar, part number amv92rcv0r0p, costs £40. I am not buying any more. This machine is going into landfill.

5.0 out of 5 stars These squabbles apps are fab!, 28 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Squeebles Maths Race (App)
Our children, aged five, seven and nine, love all the squeebles apps. They love the little animations, collecting the squabbles and learning! These apps cost very little, contain no advertisements or IAPs, are frequently updated and making learning fun. They are heads and shoulders above most of the other educational apps and highly recommended. Don't let you kids suffer the rubbish free apps when these cost less than a pint or a coffee!

1.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like a mid-life crisis amateur rock album played through your wall from another flat in your building, 16 Mar. 2013
This review is from: The Next Day (MP3 Download)
I am really surprised by this album. Disappointed. It sounds samey, it sounds boring, it sounds amateur. It sound like a bunch of bored, middle-aged farts trying to make a good album and failing. The production and mastering are horrible too, like mud and treacle. This album isn't worth your time or money.

I was listening to Hunky Dory before this, so maybe the review is unfair. But it isn't unfair because Bowie made both albums, Hunky Dory costs less to buy than this and I can't think of a word that adequately describes the vast, gargantuan gulf in quality. Some will say this is unfair as Hunky Dory is a masterpiece, but this isn't even remotely close. For the sake of clarity, let me say that I do not expect or want this album to sound like any of his classic albums, and yes, an integral part of Bowie's genius was evolution and revolution capturing and setting the Zeitgeist. Nevertheless, it would just be nice if the new album was any good: it is a quality rather than a style comment. Scary Monsters doesn't sound like Diamond Dogs but it is still a decent album. This is not.

Once the media hype is over, the album will be forgotten but Bowie will be a little bit richer. I really do wonder if this album was released simply to introduce his fabulous back catalogue to a new younger audience. Buy one of his many classic and brilliant albums but don't bother with this limp and lifeless effort.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid!, 15 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After three months use the plastic has worn away behind where the credit cards go and the phone holder is thin and has snapped, which puts the phone at risk of serious damage from falling out. The vendor claimed it had stock but I didn't receive the item for more than a week. I had to chase the seller who claimed to have already sent the item and then posted another but I received only one item. The seller also claimed an exclusive on the item at the time but clearly didn't have one. A nice idea badly executed by a dishonest seller. Avoid.

1.0 out of 5 stars What's really interesting is what the Guardian's own hacks think about this process, 14 Mar. 2013
And which keeps on being deleted from CiF on the Guardian website, so copied here for your pleasure and information:

"Afternoon Alan - I'm a member of Guardian staff, posting anonymously.

As you know, it's a tough time for your journalists at the moment - especially for those of us way down the food chain: the production grunts, the desk-bound, the ones who actually produce the content.

We're working harder and harder (because we love the papers), coping with dwindling resources and morale, we're badly mismanaged, and trying to cope with the life-changing threat of compulsory redundancies - all a result of the company's long-term financial illiteracy and lavish excess at the top.

So I just want to say thanks for the series of articles - three now, isn't it? - about learning to play your Fazioli piano. They're brilliantly timed, and I know they'll lift spirits. We always wondered how you filled your days, how you spent your fortune. Now we know."
