4.0 out of 5 stars Good Insight into the times and players on the early pro-tour. Hoad, Rosewall, Gonzales to name but a few., 6 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For someone like me in their mid-sixties Rod Laver was my tennis hero. The book then is a fascinating insight into those days when there were two strands to the tennis scene, professional and amateur. The author gives some very interesting context to those times and how life was on a day to day basis for players. Like a lot of these sports books one doesn't read them for the fabulous prose but to learn more about the individuals and their fellow competitors. A really worthwhile read for anyone who is interested in the 50s and 60s and early 70s tennis scene and the very top players like Hoad, Rosewall, Gonzales who all travelled together with Rod and others promoting the pro-tennis circuit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be prepared to alter your long held perceptions!, 15 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent book full of surprises! The title is very apt especially for this long time football fan and the conclusions are backed up with very interesting data. Having said that this is not a dry book full of statistics but a fascinating read written in a very approachable style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple - Just Works!, 8 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have a flat screen Philips TV - probably 10+ years old but several devices such as Nexus 7, Mobile Phones, Chromebook and laptops. Whilst we are not avid watchers of films etc we were impressed when our son brought his Chromecast over and it just plugged and played with minimum of setup.
So, for GBP30 we thought we'd buy our own and sure enough it was very easy to set up and use.
We play music and all the various films etc one finds via the internet and are very pleased with the whole thing.
For the money it adds tremendous flexibility to our viewing choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Mark Steyn What else do you need to know?, 6 Jun. 2014

Some wonderful writing by Mark again with superb anecdotes and stories of famous people who have recently deceased.
Those who know Mark's writing will not be disappointed and for those that don't know him - then this is a veritable treat.


Integral UltimaPro 64GB Class 10 SDXC Memory Card
Integral UltimaPro 64GB Class 10 SDXC Memory Card
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought to use in my Chromebook, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most Chromebooks have only 16Gb SSD card which actually is fine for most uses (and indeed there is another 100Gb in Google drive).
But I use a lot of tutorials (Videos) and putting these on the card means one is always able to carry on work. The card is permanently in place and thus increases the "hard drive" space to nearly 80Gb - I can't imagine many Chromebook users wanting more than that currently.
The card was well-priced and transfers to and from it are very fast.
Certainly no problem at all watching the videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits my HP Chromebook 14 perfectly, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quality bag (Belkin) which fits my Chromebook like a glove.
Nice zipped front pocket as well to hold papers and small accessories (one can put the mains lead in there but I'm not sure it would be a good idea).
Well padded and the handle is very useful when transferring everything into the car etc - you know how it goes otherwise, both hands full, try to open the car door which swings back and knocks the laptop out of your hand on to the floor!
Excellent value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Perfectly, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to use on my HP Chromebook 14 which I had bought in the USA earlier this year. Obviously it had a US plug and this cord works perfectly to allow me to charge up whilst in this country without any hassle.
Have had it for 4 weeks now and can see no sign of wear (as others have said) so I'm hoping this will be good value.
UPDATE - it's now September 2014 ie 6 months on and the cord still works OK and shows no sign of wear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mark Steyn at his best, 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Effectively this is the story of Mark's successful campaign against the Canadian Human Rights gang. If you know Mark's writing then you'll know what to expect and you won't be disappointed as he takes up the cudgels against the Orwellian thought police.
Of you haven't met him before then you're in for a treat.
If you believed in genuine free speech then you'll be grateful there are such defenders willing to put themselves on the line for the betterment of us all.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Case , tremendous value, 7 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having had my own Nexus for a year now with a Proporta case I would advise anybody looking for such a case to go for the 360 degree version which allows viewing in both portrait and landscape mode.
This case which I bought for my wife's Nexus is exactly the same, sturdily made, nice colour and very practical. For the price it cannot be beaten.
