  1.  The INCOMPLETE Fourteenth Season

    Posted: 

    This season of South Park is great. Hilarious! I would recommend buying it.

    I couldn't help but notice however that this season is missing two episodes. Episode 5 & 6 (200 & 201)

    According to Wikipedia it is because of the references made about Muhammad and many celebrities. Wouldn't want anyones precious little feelings getting hurt now would we?

    Anyway. Great season! Just felt it was a little sneaky of them to stamp "The Complete Fourteenth Season" all over the box when nearly 15% of the material has been cut.

  2.  Lovely Glow!

    Posted: 

    I have two of these, the sun jar and the moon jar. Both are lovely and do glow for quite a long time after spending several hours in the sun. Would recommend to those who like mood lighting.

    I noticed a couple of people saying theirs hardly produced any glow. I did too notice this initially but then I realised the light detectors [which are beside the solar panels] that turn them on when it gets dark enough are very sensitive, so if you are in a room that has lights, lamps or even a bright TV on, the light detectors will cause the LED in the jar to dim.

    A way to make sure the jar glows its brightest is to put a piece of cardboard over the solar panel and close the jar shut. That way no light can enter the top of the jar and cause the detector to make the LED dim.

    A tip. With some care, you can lift the solar panel off and replace the battery with a better one or[in the rainy seasons] you can remove the battery in it and charge it with a wall charger.

    Also, With some more care, you can take off the tubing that surrounds the LED, remove it and replace the LED with a different coloured one if you so desire. Just make sure you know what your doing. :)

    Anyway, great wee product, those who love mood lighting will love it.

  4.  Something for the fans.

    Posted: 

    Quite impressed with this eve hypo. It does look great, however, I think they could have put more work into it. For example.

    - The seams along the sides of the hypo are blatantly obvious and don't give the hypo a solid look.
    - The needle part can be pulled off to reveal a screw that holds it together. This is an advantage if you ever need to mend something inside, but even the slightest tug will pull it off. At first I thought I had broke it, then I realized it was meant to do that. It really should have been made more secure to the rest of the hypo.
    - The plastic battery door is also quite obvious and it also has a screw on it to keep the batteries locked in, so again, it doesn't give it that solid look.

    Anyway, On to the good,

    -The blue LED light does look good in the dark but It really shouldn't be left on, I guess the batteries would run down very quick.
    -The On/Off switch is actually the top of the hypo, its just like the clicky top of a pen which means theres no awful switches or buttons on the sides.
    -Its a good size and stays true to the design in the game.

    Overall I'm impressed, but more work could have been put into it. Only something for the fans.

    Now I'm just keeping my fingers crossed they will bring out an ADAM syringe to go with it.

    Hope this helps!

  5.  It's Decent!

    For Nokias 1st touch screen mobile, its not bad at all. However there is room for loads of improvement.

    The Good -

    - Comes with an 8GB Micro SD Card for all your music.
    - Contacts bar on your main background for 4 of your favorite contacts.
    - A proximity sensor that turns the screen off when you make calls so your cheek doesn't press any buttons
    - A standard 3.5mm headphone jack for you to plug your normal headphones into to listen to the music.
    - Create and customize your own themes and profiles.
    - Good selection of small applications (voice recorder, calender, calculator, converter etc).
    - Works well as an MP3 player once you get all your music organised.
    - Very impressed with the radio and the phones loudspeaker ability. Using two speakers on the back, its very loud!

    The Bad -

    - The Battery life. *sigh* Its TERRIBLE! I swear I lost one battery bar just by making a call. Surely the folks at Nokia knew they were making a phone that uses a lot of power (touch screen, mp3 player, Internet, radio, loud speaker etc etc) so why didnt they invest in a better battery

    -The touch screen. If this phone is going to be your first touch screen device then you probably wont have any complaints. However, if you have an iTouch or have tried out the iPhone, you will be very disappointed. It is in no way near as responsive as the iPhone. I find myself pushing down on the screen to get what I want with the 5800, yet all it takes is a tap with the iPhone.

    -The camera. This one doesn't bug me as I don't take any pictures or videos with my phone, but I can see how it would annoy some of you. The camera is capable...and nothing more. Not one thing stands out with it.

    - The music synchronization software provided. Its awful. Thankfully I found out you can just use good old Windows Media Player to sync all your tunes to it.

    Overall - 4 Stars. It impresses but needs some big improvements to the battery and touch screen.

    Hope this helps!

  6.  Amazing. Just Amazing.

    Posted: 

    This is a fantastic album. While the album should be listened to as a whole for the real experience, tracks like Fatal Tragedy (the drums and guitar will never cease to astound you), Through Her Eyes, Home, The Spirit Carries On and Finally Free can be listened to over and over again and never get old. This is definitely one of my favourite albums and certainly worth the money. A very talented band.

    This album honestly does not have a bad track on it. If you like your "classic rock", as the user "Foofighter" has said, "Buy It". I have to back him up. I find this album puts me in a really good mood. Exceptionally good tracks. A highly recommended buy. It has sold well over 17million copies. Fact. Find out why!

  8.  A wonderful game but...

    Posted: 

    I really did try to get into this game as it has an intriguing story line, inventive weapons, decent graphics [even for nowadays standards] and occasional puzzles to get your brain working. Problem is they took all these great features and destroyed them with terrible controls. It's so clunky and awkward. I can't get my head round it. It seems like they were too ambitious in creating a very realistic game (e.g. manually combining items and changing the batteries on your torch when they run out of power) and because of this, the gameplay suffered greatly.

    Do buy it if your up for the added challenge of mastering the controls. I got a couple of chapters into the game, gave up and switched to a different FPS/Shooter where I could really understand and appreciate how much better a game is with decent controls.

  9.  Listen to MrLuigi!

    I'm backing this guy up as he is 100% correct. Just buy the original and download the FREE Survival Pack Add-On off Xbox-Live. Valve is an amazing company but I can't believe they brought out the same game with FREE downloadable content and charged people full whack for it. It's insulting almost.

    The only people who should buy this are those who don't have their Xbox's connected to the internet, though I wouldnt advise it as L4D is best played online with others.

    5 Star Game!!
    1 Star for the ripp off!!
