1.0 out of 5 stars Only works with Xperia Z5 phones., 11 Nov. 2015
I bought this item in good faith form Sony Mobile Europe as a compact travel version of the UCH10 quick charger. That was what it was touted to be in the press before it was released. On their website it doesn't show compatibility only 'Works well with Z5.'
I can tell you this charger does not work with i.e. will not charge my Xperia Z3+ phone, Z4 tablet or Smartwatch3. I've yet to try it with any of my other Sony chargeable peripherals.
Apparently it is only compatible with the Xperia Z5 range of phones. Be warned.
I have been calling Sony up about this even during the 14 day cooling off period and now it's out of it they are refusing to take it back and refund me.
I called the UK European Consumer Centre and they say that you have to go with what it says on Sony's ESHOP re compatibility, which is zilch. Like I said, all it says is 'goes well with z5.' Just because other web retailers say it's compatible with all Sony devices doesn't mean it is. I leaned that at least. And that goes for news articles in advance of the product's release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellence Supreme!, 25 April 2008
This review is from: Fierce Disco Ii (Audio CD)
This release is the most outstanding yet this year for me. It's very well rounded.
As ever, Mark Doyle and The Fierce Angels family strive to give us the best quality music.
And this time round they win hands down with a lot of amazing disco house tunes.
Thank you and well done guys.


Jane Preston: Pt. I and II
Jane Preston: Pt. I and II
by Jane Preston
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and important read!, 31 Mar. 2008
Jane Preston is an inspirational human being as all who have the privilege of knowing her will testify.
Her autobiography here is a great insight into why this is.

The strength of Jane's character and positive zest for life shines throughout the book.
It is an excellent read and it is clear that a lot of thought has gone into what is being relayed. The writing is honest, conversational and descriptive. It is heart wrenching at times; dry and humerous at other times.
It is very well balanced and reflects on the person writing it which is quite refreshing.
It's a very involving read which shouldn't be rushed but savoured. We the reader are being gently engaged and sometimes challenged.
A 'Life Map' is being shared here, and there are many lessons to be learned and knowledge to be gleaned by the reader. But that, as the reader, is up to you.

I can't recommend this book enough. It is one of the best,relevant and valid autobiographies I have ever read.
Buy it now.... In fact buy two, and pass one onto someone you know may benefit from what is being shared or who simply enjoys a good read!

5.0 out of 5 stars The sound that changed dance music in the mid-eighties, 2 Feb. 2006
Its great to see this single released again in its original form.Even if it does seem to capitalise on the success of Pete Burns' recent appearance on the UK reality show: 'Celebrity Big Brother.'
Two and a half years ago DoA released a completely new 'metro' version of the song with a new video which is also on this enhanced cd. But on this release,the video is overlayed with the original version of the song. (You can still get the newer 2003 version which has some great new mixes.)
I love both versions....but I wish the new version was the one that were released since it's more up to date and cutting edge (just like the original was when it was released at the back end of 1984!) But Im sure in their wisdom Sony have a method in their madness.
It's great to see Pete and DoA back....they were and continue to be true, original, creative and cutting edge artists both in sound and vision!
The accompanying Hits CD: 'Evolution' is a great companion to this single which can be found in standard,ltd double CD,and DVD.(You have to get them all if you're a fan or newly interested in them.)
