5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, I enjoyed this book very much., 18 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Proxima (Kindle Edition)
Excellent read, I enjoyed this book very much.

Interesting slant on a tale with a nice round robin story.
Say no more, this is not a spoiler!

Read on the Kindle and worked well on it too, some do not.

I shall look for some more of his work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely sparkly bits end up on your feet as you use this kit., 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lovely sparkly bits end up on your feet as you use this kit.
Don't be put off by them being extra course, they need to be to actually function normally.

The unit these fit is underpowered and it takes a long time to get the require result, despite the diamond grit.

I wish Scholl would add this diamond grit to the standard Scholl quick pedi rollers; they do a much better job at skin removal, but last a fraction of the time they should for the price.
I suspect the inclusion of diamond grit to these roller is to compensate for the underpowered device in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent brush, with TWO, yes two brush heads. A first and well overdue feature for this brand., 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Excellent brush, with TWO, yes two brush heads. ( Count them, there are two!) A first and well overdue feature for this brand.

They are also the oblong brushes, like a plain toothbrush, instead of the annoying round heads so common on Braun brushes.

The body charges reasonably quickly, a mere 16-18 hours!!!

It's easy to clean, but make sure you turn it off before removing from your mouth, unless you want white dots drying over ever surface and what fun cleaning them off when dry.

Standard charger with a shaving 2 pin plug.
Induction charging, means there are no direct wire contacts and it does a great job in cleaning teeth.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a cheap, tacky, tinny, quiet thing, 18 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All those reviews and no-mentioned the most important facts.
Here they are.
1) it's a tinny sound
2) its not very loud
3) only 1 tune is usable, the rest are cingingly tacky and awful and terrible. Get the picture?
4) one frequency only, you can't change it
5) its very cheap and thin plastic looking
6) it does work okay.

Should you buy one?
Nope
The reviews are very deceiving.It's awful, never buy a bell without hearing it first.
After my 30 year Friedland with the deep sound gave out and you cannot get them any more, this is a cheap, tacky, tinny, quiet thing.
The only good thing is it uses AA rather than the expensive C cells I used to have to buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a very comprehensive program intended for the serious movie producing buff, 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have used an earlier version which fell over like a drunk at a wedding. Embarrassingly so.
Installed on a 64 bit power PC of a humdinger, this 64 bit program seems to work pretty well indeed.
I often find 64 bit programs lacking in real functionality compared to the 32 bit.

However this is a very comprehensive program intended for the serious movie producing buff.
It's a little daunting at first and is definitely not for noobies.

However with time and effort the interface becomes natural and there are some amazing little tricks you can apply, once you have found them.

Someone here pointed out that it has problem with movies over 30 minutes.
Most amateur audiences would be asleep by then anyhow!
The maximum attention curve is 20 minutes, so unless you are making a professional quality movie, this would not be something this program would be useful for, ie you'd use a pro package and a mixing desk.

However if you are an enthusiast with a power PC, this program is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small unobtrusive phone with BIG buttons and a simple to use interface., 10 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Small unobtrusive phone with BIG buttons and a simple to use interface.

It is either table top mounted or wall. On the back of the handset is a red LED to signal it is ringing and it stores two fast dial numbers.
The print is LARGE, so no specs needed nor an arc lamp to read them.

What is it good for?

- Elderly relatives sometimes prefer an old fashioned phone, they struggle with DECT codless units. This is a good 2nd phone or by the bed - with family call buttons.

- WE all need a wired phone. In case of power-cuts, the wireless DECT phones are dead. Useless. You can't even call an Ambulance.
However the phone lines are independent of your power supply and they still work.
This phone is therefore great to call the power supply company before your freezer melts and your tropical fish freeze.

-Testing. In case A wireless phone is going mammeries up - this unit will plug in and test the actual line, not that dodgy DECT you bought down the pub from a dodgy geezer.
Also batteries do go flat!
Could be that, more likely the Trotter Brothers.

For this price, you can't go wrong.

Should you buy it?

Yes

PS I'm all the above, even for testing the doddery relatives phone. It's always a flat battery, because the cat is not a charger.
