Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The tablet fits perfectly and all ports and buttons are easily accessible. When put in stand mode the tablet sits securely and at a nice angle. I reccommend this case wholeheartedly.

Easy to fit and remove if necessary. Black colour blends in nicely with the black leather of the car seat. Does a good job of protecting the car seats and will help minimise any damage and help with resale value of the car.

2.0 out of 5 stars Love Demille. Hate this book., 18 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Gate House (Kindle Edition)
The Gold coast is one of my favourite Demille books and was so complete and satisfying that a sequel is a big surprise. However Demille reunites his main characters years later with a plausible reason and has John, Susan and Anthony Bellarosa (son of Frank) all living within close proximity of each other. He throws in a shady Iranian, a potential new love interest, Elizabeth, for John and he has a serious girlfriend, Samantha, back in London. The scene is set for some interesting plot developments and romantic entanglements....and he's done it! Demille has set the scene for a great book in the first 200 pages.
However in a completely implausible move he reunites Susan and John and decides to abandon the book he should have written and spends the next 400 pages chronicling other character's reactions to John and susan's reunion. So nothing happens for the next 400 pages. Seriously. NOTHING happens.
Demille's humour is given free rein and every other line is a joke or comic scenario. It is so overdone you soon stop laughing when you realise the plot has stopped in it's tracks and this has descended to just being a joke book. You lose interest in the characters as they are wheeled in and out just to set the scene for more jokes. Worse still I recognised some of the jokes from his previous books. Re-hashing old material is a sign that the creative juices have dried up. Oh dear.
At 400 pages this could have been ok. At 700 it's tiresome and boring.
Hope his next effort is better or he will lose a serious fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mag. Great price., 18 Oct. 2010
This is an unexpected bonus of owning a kindle. Haven't seen this mag for years. Works well on the kindle (though probably less graphic intensive than the actual mag). It's now easy to get hold of and it's a bargain at £1.99 an issue.
Wish Isaac was still around to see this, Asimov's delivered wirelessly to your electronic reading device! It's like a self fulfilling prophecy isn't it? Proof that the future is here now! Thankfully no silver jump suits but sadly no hovercars....

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best, 13 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Kill To Get Crimson (MP3 Download)
What a gem. Great story-telling songs that all belong together to create a great album. Top notch production and arrangements. Superb musicianship, as usual, and the best vocal performance yet from Mark.
I read complaints here that he's too laid back but that is his style and, really, always has been. Listen to the first, and best, Dire Straits album and hear how different it is to the rest of their work. Dire Straits got caught up in the whole 80's cd sales boom and stadium rock thing like a lot of artists at that time. Many of them started writing loud, anthemic songs designed to get 50,000 people clapping and singing together but ultimately the commercially oriented songs quickly lose their appeal. Artists like Springsteen and Bowie produced multi-million selling records and played to huge crowds but that period is easily their worst in terms of creativity. A lot of people still want Springsteen to re-hash Born in the USA over and over and it's the same story with Mark Knopfler and Money for Nothing. Those days are over and thank God they're not coming back. Please accept it.
