5.0 étoiles sur 5 Works for me, Jan. 8 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I live in Toronto where signals are strong, so I bought this to see if it would pull in enough channels to allow me to cut my cable. I have the antenna on the second floor, by a window facing east. I get the following useful channels with it, most of which are broadcast from the CN Tower: CBC, CFTO/CTV, CHCH, Global, City, WLNO/CW, TVO, Omni, Fox. The HD quality is startlingly better than my cable. Very pleased with this antenna.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun toy, Jan. 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got this for an 11 year old and a 12 year old for Christmas and they both love it. The twelve year old took a picture of it on her phone and shows it to everyone. The 11 year old's piggy bank is almost half full in just a week because every adult she shows it to just has to feed it a bunch of coins. If you want to see the cuteness it in action there are a bunch of videos posted on YouTube.

It shipped from Japan and arrived several weeks ahead of the projected date. Great product, great seller.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect in every way except one, Dec 15 2013
This slow cooker is everything I was looking for - programmable but with an easy-to-use manual dial setting, not too big, not too small.

The one serious issue I have with it is that the lid has a rubber rim which unfortunately absorbs the smell of whatever you are cooking. I don't have a dishwasher, and I have been unable to get the lid clean through scrubbing, soaking, or a baking soda and vinegar paste. This is really disappointing because in every other way this slow cooker is perfect. I recommend buying slow cooker that doesn't have rubber parts in the lid.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent mouse, Aug. 15 2013
This is an excellent wireless mouse with an ergonomic feel and very smooth tracking. Of course it sells for 20 bucks across the border.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Worked well while they lasted, Feb. 11 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The positives: Very good sound and range.
The negative: A little heavy and quite tight. The pressure begins to hurt my ear after about 10 minutes. I hope it will loosen up.

Update July/13 - Unfortunately these stopped working after about 3 months of light use. Buyer beware.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent fan, May 27 2012
As all the reviews state, this is an excellent window fan. However, it retails for 70 dollars in the US, so to Canadians I recommend popping over the border and buying it there.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun!, May 1 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lost Girl: Season 1 (DVD)
I had never heard of this show until I caught the pilot episode on TV this weekend. It was a lot of fun and left me wanting more. I was surprised to find out that this is not a new show, but is already well into the second season! How did I miss this one?

The plot of this show appears to be a combination of the Meredith Gentry series of novels by Laurell K Hamilton and the Ephemera series by Anne Bishop. The Fae or Faerie are living amongst the human population; working as PI's fighting crime both supernatural and human; there is ongoing conflict between the 'dark' and 'light' Fae. Succubi, demons and other supernatural creatures abound. All in all a good time for someone who likes this kind of lightweight fantasy. Looking forward to catching up on both seasons.

Wow, look at the price! $67.77 for a game that retails for $8 at Target in the US! Thanks for continuing to gouge Canadians.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Lightweight vinyl case, straps can get in the way, May 29 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This lightweight vinyl case does the job. I think that this case is the best of a poor selection here at amazon.ca. It's depressing to go to amazon.com and see all the great stuff available there that either doesn't ship to Canada, or the shipping across the boarder plus duty costs a fortune.

The good : Kindle fits snugly. Lightweight. Has a magnetic clasp keeps the case closed.
The bad : The straps that hold the kindle in place can get in the way of the buttons.
Cheap quality (vinyl) and overpriced for something that isn't leather.

The Lost Continent

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Exaggerated but hilarious, June 23 2009
This review is from: The Lost Continent (Paperback)
This was the first Bill Bryson novel that I ever read and I found it hilarious. But I do remember thinking at the time that it would definitely offend a lot of Americans.

As a Canadian who has lived in US and who loves it, I think I have a lot in common with the author. Bryson is an ex-pat American, but in this book acts essentially as Brit who is viewing the US through the lens of a cultural outsider. A lot of incidents in this book are exaggerated for laughs, but there is always a kernal, and sometimes a whole corn cob, of truth.

If you are the type of American who thinks that your country can do no wrong, and who can't laugh at your own culture (I always maintain that there is plenty to laugh at in every culture!) don't bother to read this book. It will just raise your blood pressure. Everyone else, enjoy!
