Plato: Philosophy in an Hour
Plato: Philosophy in an Hour
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand, but very basic, 10 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It will take you less than an hour to read this.

It is written in a very simple form, which is easy to follow and absorb. This is good given the fear with which one may approach Plato, or philosophy, for the first time.

The book covers three broad areas:

(1) the context of the world in which Plato lived, and his life experiences;

(2) a high level explanation of his philosophy: a major influence on Christian theology following the neo-Platonists, and still of great influence, Regardless of your personal spirituality, you can learn from this;

(3) a very short summary of his views on how society should be ordered. These views are unpleasant in application, and were an influence on fascism and communism.

For the price this is very good value, and worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, but use rechargeable batteries, 28 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for a chronic nerve pain problem. It does some good on a 'distraction' basis.

This small version is sufficiently discreet that you can wear it when walking about.

One suggestion: If you use ordinary Duracell or Everlast batteries, it becomes very expensive. Cheap batteries do not work. I bought some rechargeable CR2025 batteries and a charger [Not available on Amazon. I went to another site. Do not buy the cheap £8+ Chinese version which does not work]. With these I am content.

Famous 'Four Just Men' and other stories. Some stories are rather weaker, but at this price for 1500 + pages you can not go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it for the price; good Edwardian atmosphere, 28 July 2016

Victorian / Edwardian crime stories with amateur sleuth. Good period detail. Technical detail about railways. The style is rather dated, but enjoyable for its evocation of the period. Excellent price.

Lenovo E73 Tower Desktop (Intel Core i3 3.7 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Windows 10)
Lenovo E73 Tower Desktop (Intel Core i3 3.7 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Windows 10)
Offered by Kikatek
Price: £285.27

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended : good value at this price for 3.7GHz processor, 14 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a replacement for a worn out PC. Do thorough research before choosing. My criteria were the best processor speed and RAM at the lowest price. At 3.7Ghz this stood out.

4GB of RAM is on the low side, and there are no extra slots to add RAM. Try it with the 4GB and replace with 8GB or 16GB if you need.

Set up: It is loaded with Windows 7, but you can upgrade for free to Windows 10. Allow many hours for it to do this and download other updates.

Then you will need to download other programmes, printer drivers, Adobe PDF reader, and others (see below) and transfer data from your old PC. The Lenovo is pre loaded with MS Edge browser which is OK, although I use Firefox. The Lenovo accepted Windows Office Professional 2007 via my CDs without problem.

Once in operation the Lenovo is good. Simple and fast.

Security protection: It comes with Windows Firewall (which I use), Windows Defender anti virus (which I use: see below) but no anti malware.

The machine offers paid for Norton AV. Research your own AV, but I found Norton blocked a port on my old PC, while on the Lenovo Avira (of which I downloaded a free trial) slowed it down terribly. Defender is not the best, but with care OK. Never open files or programmes from outside unless trusted.

More important is to download Malware Bytes. This captures 'Trojans' etc. It is good: it detected and killed 70 files not detected by Defender or Avira (I suspect they came in when I lowered the Firewall to download programmes).

Otherwise: add Trusteer Rapport by download to protect banking & investments. The machine offers Slim Cleaner and Drivers Update, but I rejected these as research suggests they do more harm than good. Never add new programmes unless they are necessary.

Back up storage: Set this up on your OLD PC before you start. Then you can simply download to the new Lenovo. There is a significant difference between cloud storage e.g. Google Drive and Back up storage, for which I use Crashplan: you have a 30 day free trial to be sure it works. Before on my old PC I used Google Drive, and could not download all my old data. Crashplan is simple: automatically it stores and updates everything in C:/Users/ You, plus any others you select.

If you do not use Back up, then transfer data using a MS programme after networking the 2 PCs.

In conclusion: the Lenovo is a very good machine for the price. Ideally it would offer the option of more RAM and have Windows 10 preloaded. For set up, allow time, be patient, and do your research. It helps to have your old (or another) PC connected to the Internet so that you can check things while you set up the new Lenovo.

Recommended.

I regret that, for my cat, they did not work.

The products are expensive,even if they did work.

I found the Cat Calm collars much better.

Nespresso Inissia Coffee Capsule Machine by KRUPS - Ruby Red
Nespresso Inissia Coffee Capsule Machine by KRUPS - Ruby Red
Price: £60.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product at a good price, 10 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was ticked off for making a mess with a cafetiere. This machine is simple to use and makes little mess: you simply refill with water daily, empty the tray of used capsules, and empty the drip tray. The machine occupies little room and is neat in appearance. Make sure you have an electric socket next to where you will place the machine: the cord is short.

The machine uses very high pressure to push water through the coffee resulting in a good density and taste.

The brand name capsules are expensive at c. 30p each. I buy them in Lidl at 18p and find the quality just as good.

This machine is sold at a good price.

This review is from: CatCalm Pouches Twin Pack (Misc.)
Many of these calming aids simply do not work. This one does. It can work out expensive if you have more than one cat, but if your cat is nervy these will help.
