4.0 out of 5 stars Was great when it worked, 25 May 2016

The mouse cursor works but tapping does nothing since the Fire TV stick update, therefore useless as a mouse until this is fixed.

Superb! So much better for text entry than the FireTV stick remote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless classic, 21 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was bought for my daughter, who loved it.

There are obvious flaws with the film, the main one being that Audrey Hepburn is just too prim and proper to be believable as an escort/call girl (only subtly hinted at but obvious to an adult audience). Truman Capote purportedly wanted Marilyn Monroe in the Holly Golightly role and she would have been a better fit (think "The Seven Year Itch") but the utter charm and visual style of the movie makes you forget the shortcomings and just enjoy.

How sad that George Peppard is now most famous as Hannibal Smith in the A-Team. He is a handsome leading man in this with a real movie star charisma - and he can act better than I remembered.

They truly don't (because they can't) make them like this anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars My wife loves this book, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife knew this was a good book. I bought this to replace a copy she had on long term loan from a friend, so my purchase had the benefit of pleasing two people; my wife and her friend (who finally got her own copy back).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sat Nav-friendly road atlas, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great road atlas with postcodes for important landmarks and places - ideal if you have a Sat Nav. Ring binding also makes it very easy to open and fold back, if necessary, without the risk of breaking the spine and pages falling out. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars This will keep the wife busy for ages!, 16 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An ideal weight for plastic templates and a good price. It's amazing how expensive this stuff can be in other places. My wife uses it for making quilting templates and because she hand quilts, this will keep her busy for many months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb for the money, 3 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This small stereo speaker unit won't win any audiophile awards, but for the size (and they are very small) they pack a surprisingly loud punch and have a good, rounded tone. USB powered or use the in-built rechargeable battery for up to 3 hours.

I bought these as a small portable unit that would be easy to take on holiday etc. If you buy them for a similar purpose, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap does not mean nasty, 8 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To be honest, when I bought this gel case and protective sock combo for my son's iPod I wasn't expecting too much with regard to quality. I was pleasantly surprised.

The gel case looks absolutely beautiful with a concentric circle design. The buttons are covered by the case but remain fully functional and it also makes the iPod feel safer to hold. It is better than several cases I've seen in stores that were more much, much more expensive. The colour coordinated protective sock is a very nice bonus.

You'd be foolish not to spend a small amount to help protect such a costly product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funky fob watch a big hit with my daughter, 8 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read some reviews of similar watches that said they had a tendency to pop out of the rubber holder. That can't happen with this watch because there is a hidden flat link chain with a brooch pin behind the funky rubber casing.

They are undoubtedly functional and great value but also quirkily fashionable. My daughter wears hers to school and has had lots of compliments from friends.
