4.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 hour battery life when using wifi....... Come on Apple, you can do better., 23 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely product but good heavens, can people tell Apple the battery life is barely fit for purpose? With wifi on, reading web content and e mailing.... Why, it's about 2.5 hours. I do not think this is down to age or fault..... Ask long-standing users.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 16 Dec. 2011
For anyone old enough to have an adult memory of the 1980s, this book is a marvel, reminding us what an extraordinary decade we all lived through. Half forgotten memories are given fresh life as you turn the pages - and turn them you will, given the fast pace, the lovely writing and the way the material is organised. And then there is the stuff that passed you by - the details you missed at the time,or which have come to light since. Margaret Thatcher lambasting her home secretary over incompetence in the search for the Yorkshire Ripper and having to be dissuaded from racing up to Yorkshire to take personal charge of the investigation... as the author points out, this was in Hugo Young's biography of the Iron Lady, but how many readers will either come upon the anecdote for the first time, or have forgotten it?
Politics, pop, crime, counter-culture, economics, the miners' strike - this wonderful pocket history covers it all in one effortless read.
And for those too young to remember the 1980s, what an enviable way to learn. Entertaining, informative - Andy Marr is right, it is hard to think how this could be improved upon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous read and a very original story, 18 May 2010
This review is from: On the Broken Shore (Paperback)
The literary equivalent of a refreshing sea breeze. Landlubbers in need of a break but unable to get away could do a lot worse than open this book. You will be transported to a marine world and rewarded with a wistful and original story. Anyone contending with the pressures of urban life will find themsleves prompted to reflect on life, loss and liberty. As with the very best fiction, the protagonist and the choices he makes linger in the mind long after the final chapter. On the Broken Shore brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "a good beach read".
