2.0 out of 5 stars Good game until level 17, 10 Oct. 2015

This review is from: Escape 2048 (App)
Not a bad escape the room game, unfortunately level 17 is impossible to complete as it doesn't allow you to interact with one of the objects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good fun, 29 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Bonza Word Puzzle (App)
Puzzles vary in difficulty but are generally good. Being British the American slant can be a bit annoying but not overly so.
The daily free puzzle can be anything from thirty seconds of time passed to a good few minutes.
Overall an enjoyable and interesting game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A melodic album that is a joy to listen to, 16 Feb. 2010

This review is from: Smoke & Mirrors (MP3 Download)
This album has obvious influences from The Fields of the Nephilim but is a musical work in it's own right. The various female vocalists give a melodic and sweeping feel to the tracks while still keeping an 80s goth atmosphere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 16 Feb. 2010

The knives have a good solid feel to them and fit comfortably in the hand, only been using them for a couple of months but they have retained their edge well so far and are a joy to use.


Logitech Squeezebox Boom

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound at a decent price, 4 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was my first Squeezebox purchase and was bought to replace a more traditional mini stereo system.

Once ordered I immediately downloaded the software and installed it on my pc rather than wait till the device arrived and the installation was simple and effortless and once downloaded took less than 5 minutes to install and configure.

When the device itself arrived installation was so simple it hardly warrants being called an installation; plug the device in and wait for it to boot, use the dial on the front to select the wireless network and then enter the access code. Wait for device to download firmware update and reboot and then it is ready, again the entire process took less than 5 minutes.

Once the device is up and running the device is easy to manage from the supplied remote control operating a menu system that allows you to browse your collection in the expected ways (artist, album etc) with a minimum of fuss. Selecting from preconfigured radio stations or applications is equally simple.

A web interface allows you to perform more sophisticated functionality and provides an easy to use interface for browsing and searching music, reordering play lists and managing other settings. The web page allows you to register favourite internet radio stations and assorted plug-ins (these include support for the BBC's listen again and iPlayer radio stations plus last.fm scrobbling support and radio playback).

I personally find the sound quality to be more than satisfactory giving good bass sounds and clear higher frequencies which remain free from distortion even at high volume levels while lower volume levels are still ample to fill my living room.

All in all I couldn't fail to recommend this device to anyone looking for an affordable replacement for a more traditional stereo system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on .Net, 12 May 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Written in a very nice and easy to read style, covers not just how the framework is put together but more importantly reasons why and how best to take advantage of it in your own software.
Delves deep into areas of the Framework that I personally haven't seen covered as clearly anywhere else.
