That is so much easier that having to open up my laptop and insert the old drive if I need files from it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but not their best work., 1 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Songs from Earth (MP3 Download)
It's okay, but nowhere near as good as their earlier albums. I just can't see myself singing along to it, or listening to it very often to be honest.
That being said it's not bad background music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three stories in one., 30 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In a nut shell this book is about three different parts of Conqueror's history:
1) The Falklands - Which is very interesting and detailed, but doesn't reveal anything new.
2) The Political fallout of the Government's lies and their shameful attempt to cover them up by smearing some of the crew/civil service.
3) A top secret cold war operation that took place just after the Falklands war.
All three sections are interesting, the middle section probably being the most intriguing regardless of the fact it has little to do with the sub itself.

Overall a very good book. I just wish there were more details on the cold war ops, but as the author pointed out, many of these are still covered by the official secrets act.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good graphics just can't overcome a dull dull story., 23 Aug. 2011
I thought I'd like this. The screen shots on the box showed excellent graphics and the blurb told of a story that I thought I'd find interesting. (Air battles are always awesome.)
Regretable that wasn't the reality of this film. I found it slow, uneventful and boring. Even the ending could hardly be described as a climax.
The concept was fine, but there was nothing there to grip you.
This DVD will be going in my bad of things to drop off at the charity shop next time I go. I'd recommend spending your money on other anime.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fix the IP address, 30 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a bad printer and fairly easy to set up as long as you have the correct USB cable.

However there is one big issue that needs to be mentioned as it caused me loads of grief until I worked it out (I assume it applies to other home wireless printers too).
If you're printing over a wireless network rather than using the USB cable, make sure you go into your router setting and force it to give this printer the same IP address every time you turn it on. At first I was getting angry that the printer sometimes wouldn't work. It turned out that Windows was trying to print to the IP address the printer had when I installed it, but on that day my router had given it a different one.
Most routers (mine is a Netgear) will have options under "LAN IP setup" (or something similar) to give any device the same IP address each time it connects. Enter the printers MAC address there and fix it to an IP address. You can find the mac address under the Wireless settings ->Access List settings of your router once the printer is connected to the network.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not quite as good as series 1-3, 28 Aug. 2010
As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a filler series. To be honest it shows. Don't get me wrong, it's still an enjoyable series to watch, it's just not quite as gripping as earlier story lines. Plus some of the characters feel as though they've been used for no other reason than to be there (Ganju and Honataro etc).

5.0 out of 5 stars Now wonder it's won awards, 17 Aug. 2010
I bought this NAS box after is won the Custom PC (mag) NAS box labs test.
I'm glad I did. It was easy to set up and is fast enough for my needs but didn't blow my budget.
The cooling fans are quiet enough and the USB ports are useful too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good end to the story of the 1st three series, 23 Aug. 2009
Series three of Bleach marks the end to the story (started in series 1 & 2) of Rukia's rescue from the Soul Society. It also marks the arrival of a new protagonist for series 4 and beyond.
As with the earlier series the animation is excellent and the story is gripping, though you do have to pay attention to understand it.
I can strongly recommend this box set.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good 2nd series, but the story doesn't end with the last episode., 14 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good series in general, however you will need to see series 1 to understand it and you will need to get series 3 to find out what happens in the end. There is one episode that seems very out of place, but I'm guessing it will make more sense in the next series.The animation is generally very good, though it is a little bit simple in a few places. This is more than made up for by the in depth story line.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stupidly restrictive DRM, 17 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Spore (Mac/PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I came close to buying this the other day. Thankfully I read up about it first! Cut cut a long story short, EA have put ridiculously restricive DRM in this game. As much as they want to believe that DMR cuts down on piracy without affecting paying customers, it simply isn't true. Pirates can already get this game over torrents, but paying customers are left with the likely possibility that they won't be able to play this game in the future.

As a protest against DMR (and hopefully as a way to stop EA using it in future games) this game should be avoided.
