5.0 out of 5 stars Loads of fun, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Photo Lab PRO photo editor (App)
This is NOT a photo editor - there are many of those around
However - if you want your face on Lionel Messi's t-shirtsshirt or a 500 Euro note then this is for you

Sandisk 32GB MicroSDHC Micro SD HC Memory Card Stick For Sony Xperia T Mobile Phone

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it should, 11 April 2013

It is hard to get excited about memory cards. All I can say is that it arrived promptly, was easy to fit and stores lots of stuff.


Samrick Specially Designed Leather Flip Case for Sony LT30i LT30P Xperia T/Xperia TL - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled by the price, 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really solid case, that holds the my Xperia T snugly, and closes with a good solid magnetic catch.

The only drawback with it is that the holes for the buttons do not quite line up with the buttons themselves. It can be a bit fiddly waking the phone up for example. However, this does mean that the buttons are less likely to be pressed by accident when it is in your pocket or bag.

Overall, I would recommend this cover - and at this price it is almost a steal!

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely waste of time!, 16 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Spirograph (App)
This app is a great recreation of the Spirograph of the 1970s. If you want to relax, set it up and let the auto feature take your mind off everything

3.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable tripod but room for improvement, 9 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tripod was my first heavy-duty one, replacing an old lightweight one.

I find the tripod easy to use. The legs extend easily, and the locks hold very firmly. So far, I have used this tripod standing on concrete, wet sand, and grass; it has performed admirably, and has allowed me to get some good shots. Even in quite windy conditions, the tripod has remained very stable. I have only used it in the basic layout, and have yet to experiment with opening the legs wider, angling the centre post or inverting it.

However...

While the tripod is good, the acccompanying head is a disappointment. The quick-release D ring in the back is often a bit too quick to release. Unless you are using the camera in landscape mode, I find the D-ring will not hold the camera in place (particularly if using a zoom lens). If you do get the ring tightened enough to stay, the D-ring will then not return to the flat position, making it impossible to attach the plate to the tripod. My suggestion is to ignore the folding D-ring and take a hefty screwdriver with you instead - it save you mangling the edges of your coins!

Also, be aware that the matching Giotto's bag will hold the tripod, but will only take the head if you unscrew one of the handles on the head, which adds to the time needed to set it up.

Overall, a reasonable tripod and head, but with definite room for improvement.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new way to read a timeless story, 19 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I was first introduced to the message, I was somewhat taken aback by its style. I found it very brash and American (which it is) and was not at all what I expected. I found some of the Americanisms grated on me - and to be honest, they still do sometimes.

The main point though is that it makes the Bible relevant to today. I have gained new insights from reading it. I would not recommend it is a main Bible, but it makes a great additional source. If you can get past the American language then I am sure it can help you see the Bible in a new way.


Red for Danger: The Classic History Of British Railway Disasters
Red for Danger: The Classic History Of British Railway Disasters

5.0 out of 5 stars Red for Danger, 14 Oct. 2009
If you have ever wanted to find out why railway accidents make the headlines, then this book will tell you. It covers the history of railway accidents, from the very earliest days. As you read through, you can learn how the Railway Inspectorate worked with (and often fought against!) the railways to make a railway train one of the safest places to travel. You can find out how accidents happened - the tiny mistakes or momentary lapses of attention that have caused disaster - and read of the improvements that were made in the light of these bitter experiences! There is mystery (accidents that were never explained), drama (hairs-breadth escapes) and even comedy (runaway engines). This is a book to read again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tubular Bells - but sharper, 2 April 2006
This review is from: Tubular Bells 2003 (Audio CD)
I always enjoyed the original Tubular Bells - a great album for one man to make. TB 2003 is the same album - but sharper. The closest analogy I can come up with is the original is like listening to it on an AM radio, while 2003 is on FM. It feels crisper and sharper. Mike has kept all the life in the original and tightened it up to make a thoroughly good listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Mike Oldfield ever, 10 Mar. 2001
This review is from: Tubular Bells III (Audio CD)
Having heard Tubular Bells 1, I thought it was the best. Tubular Bells 2 was a disappointment - but Tubular Bells 3 confirms Mike Oldfield as one of the leading instrumentalists ever. If you only own one Mike Oldfield album, this is the one.
The album contains everything - from the pop-sounding 'Man in the Rain' to the exotic 'Serpent Dream'. There is even a hint of the Irish in 'Top of the Morning' - a personal favourite of mine. However, the whole of the album is brough together by the child's voice in the final track - which leads to a wonderful track with the (inevitable) tubular bells - my only advice is to make sure the neighbours are out and turn it up LOUD!
All in all - a wonderful album.
