5.0 out of 5 stars A good work horse., 4 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Windows 7 - does exactly what it says on the label. The successor to XP.
Only slight downside was, once installed, it took several reboots to finish downloading all the updates from MS.
And there were lots and lots of them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money., 4 July 2015
Like all the other 1* reviews I found this over priced gadget leaves streaks on the glass and black marks on the window frame as I finished the stroke.
Do not buy, a cloth, bucket and chamois will do a far better job.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the one it replaced., 13 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought to replace an identical looking calliper, this is definitely a cruder version. It is not as smooth in operation. If you close the jaws fully, hit the zero button, open the jaws then close them again it does not return to a zero reading, usually 1 or 2 out. I'm suspicious the it will not return consistent, accurate readings to the least significant digit. Nevertheless it's probably OK for most purposes, just not precision engineering.


The Last Good Man
The Last Good Man
by A.J. Kazinski
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts off well, 13 May 2015
This review is from: The Last Good Man (Paperback)
The characters are fine, and their problems have been adequately covered by other reviewers. However what starts out as an apparent whodunit, descends into metaphysics and very bad science. Plot the murders on a map of the Earth as is is today, then cut out the land masses and piece them together as they would have been over a billion years ago before plate tectonics moved them to their present places. Low! the dots form a recognisable pattern and the missing murders (past and potential) can be pinpointed to within a few dozen metres in the present by completing the missing parts of the pattern and running the tectonics forward. I don't think so. The pattern, by the way, is a 2D diagram of an atomic structure which is a convenient way of describing the atom, not an accurate depiction of the atomic orbitals in 3D and definitely not to scale.

Neither is it is explained
1) Why the 36 are dying.
2) The method of their death (poison? err... no.)
3) Why they die at the same time of day a week apart on a Friday
4) Why and how they die with a strange stigmata-like design on their backs containing their death sequence number.

It is hinted that deaths like this may have happened before, again with at least one survivor, but the idea is not followed up. Are the 36 of each generation always killed this way? Why? What, if any, is the overlap between generations of good men? So many unanswered questions.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good copy of the genuine article., 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose the give-away is the price, Whilst these bobbins work quite adequately in my Singer sewing machine, when held alongside the genuine Singer article can be seen to be a copy. The corners are not rounded, the plastic is not as crystal clear. The other downside is that they actually ship from China, so don't expect fast delivery.

More bobbins than your sewing machine has storage? This item will keep them neat, tidy, free from tangles and ready to lock and load.

Does exactly what it says on the label. No more tangled cottons with embedded reels in the bottom of the sewing box!


Melitta Look Selection Filter Coffee Maker - Black
Melitta Look Selection Filter Coffee Maker - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars A good solid coffee maker., 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another new coffee maker for me from Amazon, my third. They seem to last about 2-4 years before, usually in a spectacular puff of smoke, going to that great kitchen in the sky. My daughter already has one of these so I know I'm going to get good coffee out of it. One advantage of this machine is it is lower than most so it fits more easily under kitchen cabinets even with the lid open. Hopefully it will last till I get my Miele CVA6805 built in, computer controlled bean to cup machine for a mere £3,299! Well, a bloke can dream.


The Hit (Will Robie Series)
The Hit (Will Robie Series)
by David Baldacci
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but mared by erors., 31 Mar. 2015
I've only just started reading this book and already, on page 16 there is another of Mr B's glaring errors. "The long distance flight of a 7.62 round built up astonishing kinetic energy. In fact, the farther it travelled the more energy it built up" Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! What he should have said was "Any bullet has its maximum kinetic energy as it leaves the barrel. In fact, the further it travelled the more energy it would lose until it fell to the ground completely spent."
Having said that, this looks as if it is going to be another otherwise good, fast moving thriller.
Later.
Yes, just as I suspected, a good page turner. And some further errors and inconsistencies.
Nevertheless - recommended.
