Image was blurry. No ability to focus. Eventually fell to the hardwood floor from a height of a few feet and fell apart into little pieces.

I'm not using it with a tablet but with a heavier 7-inch monitor fed by a backup camera. Dash mount. The anchor unglued after a few days in the sun. Fixed it with superglue and the problem never came back. Should not be an issue with lighter devices.

Great riding glasses. Take minimum space, fit tightly. However, even a minor drop will pop a lens out. Easy to set back in though.

After a few days laying on the deck, and a few rain showers, paint started coming off the black pentagons.

2.0 out of 5 stars Who's deceiving who?, January 17, 2013
There are two parts to this book. The first half deals with the author's training and brief employment as a case officer. The second half describes a number of operations by the Israeli intelligence that the author was not involved in.

There are multiple problems with this book and its content. Let's start with a physical one. The Kindle edition is terribly OCR'd; there are misspellings all over and sentences are occasionally garbled.

As to the content... The author has destroyed his credibility right out of the gate, with his defensive introduction. If he has published this book to make the world a better place, what stopped him from quitting the Mossad in the first place (as many others do), instead of being essentially forced to do so? The story of the circumstances that let to the author's predicament is totally outlandish and destroys whatever credibility he may con you into thinking he has.

The second half of the book cleverly intersperses facts harvested from open sources with "information" that the author supposedly had access to through his employment. How an employee at his relatively low level had access to such privileged information remains a mystery.

The book is a quick read and is engaging, as long as you realize that this is a work of a disgruntled employee, and is partially fictional.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost there, January 17, 2013

Visibility in the dark is a staggering improvement to a perfect line of e-readers. On my device, there is a little bit of side bleed. More annoyingly, the font seems to degrade with each page turn. A refresh fixes the problem, but it is rather annoying that you have to think about such thing. You may want to set the device to refresh with every page turn, a system setting.
I'm sure the next generation will fix the problems. As is, the device was still worth it for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Landmark series, January 13, 2013
This review is from: Prisoners of War [Region 2] (DVD)
Far superior in every way to its "global" version, Homeland, to the point that it's difficult to imagine that it was written by the same screenwriter. Also hard to imagine that this was filmed non-linearly (scenes shot at the same location grouped together), and on an extremely low budget, according to Gideon Raff.
This is about as good as TV gets.
First season is available with English subtitles on Hulu, second on Maco VOD in an ongoing release, Hebrew only for now.

Got this hat as a gift and have used it regularly ever since. Jogging at night? Wear the hat. Taking out garbage at night? Wear the hat. Need to use both of your hands to do some housework in a dark closet? Wear the hat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Work of a maverick, January 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bringing out laughter and tears, sometimes at the same time, this book a work of satire that exposes the undercurrent running through the German society. Nothing here is new; it is the directness of delivery that may shock the reader familiar with the subject matter at hand.

Tuvia Tennenbom is a theater director, a playwright, and a columnist who is fluent in a number of languages and has no trouble being an impostor in his interaction with various characters. At different times and as situation warrants, he passes for a Jordanian, a Canadian, a German, with hilarious consequences.

I'm of the opinion that this book is written in good humor and with deep admiration for the German people. It is bound to draw extreme reactions because of the directness with which it confronts the subject of anti-Semitism in the German society.

This is a book that is both highly entertaining and educational, esp. if the reader is familiar with the subject matter through study of history and/or personal experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy reading but could have been better, January 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is written in a rather dry language, where some more excitement would be appropriate. The book reads as if it passed through the hand of a military censor, which it undoubtedly did. If you are looking for a relatively factual history of the Mossad, this is a worthy read. Unfortunately, much of the book is covering material you can read on Wikipedia. The part that doesn't is great, and occasionally provides analysis that goes beyond common opinions. For instance, the second Lebanese war was deemed a success by the intelligence community, while the public opinion in Israel and elsewhere has clearly been to the contrary.
Another negative is the occasional interjection of opinion, clearly left-wing as far as Israeli political issues are concerned. These opinions do not belong in a history book.
