3.0 out of 5 stars Firestick TV With Voice Remote VS Apple TV4 with Siri, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fire stick was simple to set up and came pre-registered to my account. All that was left to do was to plug it it in and connect to my account with email and by entering my wireless network passcode and then choose the apps I wanted most of which were free. - though in the case of Netflix and Curzon cinema there was a charge for most films but, with Curzon cinema this is more than justifed because of its specialism in Art House and Foreign films. There are more than enough films across the board to watch and many of them are free with an Amazon Prime account which is not just a good film provider but offers a next day delivery service for items sold by Amazon or Amazon associates.

Before I ordered Amazon Firestick I was already enjoying a large spectrum of films on Apple TV 4 which is easier to navigate using 'Siri' voice recognition with iTunes Netflix etc but not so many choices of film apps as I have found on Firestick. However 'Siri' blows Amazon's Voice Remote out of the water. With Siri you can search for films by director, leading actors, genre or film title. You can also ask it to play music by a composer or musician or genre and it works flawlessly. Ask what the weather forecast is for today or the next week and it will give it to you with amazing accuracy. Ask it for the time in any part of the world and it will supply it down to the seconds. Ask to play music by genre, artist, composer or song title and it will play it for you and if you say 'Add this music to my library', and it is added to your iTunes account for free if you have apple music.

So. At the moment I find that Apple TV is better than Amazon Firestick for voice command alone. Also if I was a gamer there would be no problem with memory or storage as Apple TV comes with 64 gb. I am not a gamer so I opted for the less expensive model with less gb. Of course the real comparison should be made with Amazon TV but I didn't feel I needed to pay for the extra features. Both Apple and Amazon have almost eliminated my need to watch cable TV though I still record items using Tivo.

In summary Apple TV and Amazon Firestick have plenty going for them but Apple Voice recognition beats Amazon on the points I have mentioned above. And Siri is due for an update so may yet carry more services - at present it is way more sophisticated than Amazon's Voice control. So if I had had to choose I would have chosen Apple - despite it's higher price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Independent Cinema at its best., 28 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Curzon Home Cinema (App)
For people like us who lived in Brighton and moved to a small market town with one odeon multiplex which caters mostly for teenagers and Hollywood smash hits Curzon cinema allows us to see the best of foreign and independent film makin - even of films still in the cinema. It's like living on the south coast again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Colour transfer onto sheets make these a poor buy - even at the price., 24 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Pyjamas seem ok at first. Lightweight and comfortable for these warmer nights. However there is a transfer of colour onto the sheets that is hard to remove. Normally there is a label with the washing instructions and a warning that colour transfer may take place but the label has been cut off at the end.

Y-FAL01 - Falcon Standard Pipe with Smooth Bull Dog Bowl
Offered by Remo shop
Price: £27.99

5.0 out of 5 stars No longer need 3 pipes., 15 April 2016
The good thing about Falcon pipes is the interchangeability of bowls. To get a good smoke from more conventional pipes meant owning 3 or more pipes as they needed time to cool down and dry out. So I had three Petersons's on the go. With falcon pipes all I need to do is change the bowl of which I have 5 bought very inexpensively through Amazon. Each bowl has two to three days to dry out and cool down before it need be used again.
No wonder they are the most popular pipes in the UK

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm Lighting, soot and smoke free., 25 Mar. 2016
Beeswax candles are far superior to paraffin wax which smell, smoke and cause soot. Initially the large size of these candles were bought as a Christmas present and we were so appreciative of them we ordered two more boxes of them as well as these. They are slow burning with a soft warm light and no tendency to burn out in the middle, like paraffin wax candles invariably do. Smokeless, soot free and slow burning these will remain our candles of choice.

Tori Amos: Lyrics

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Sumptious, 20 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tori Amos: Lyrics (Hardcover)
This beautifully illustrated book of Tori Amos' lyrics will be a delight for every fan that buys it. The songs, laid out like poems and prose poems are interleaved with colour illustrations of the singer under her many different guises each with its own mythic feel to it. The only thing missing are the lyrics since 2001 - the date of publication of this copy. A second volume is highly desired and if it matches the standard of this volume they will leave nothing left.
