The Psion Revo is a remarkably powerful, feature-rich and lightweight PDA. An interesting alternative to Palm or Pocket PC organisers, the Psion is stylish and slim and has a high-speed processor and built-in long-life batteries. The Revo is relatively simple to set up. Connect the AC adapter to the serial cable (the power cord does not plug into the docking station), hook up the serial cable to your PC, open the Revo's case and slide the Revo into the docking station. (The Revo cannot fit into the docking station unless the case is open.) A green LED confirms that the Revo is properly docked and a red LED indicates that the battery is fast charging. The battery charges to 85 per cent capacity in just 1.5 hours and fully charges in four hours. The charged battery lasts about 12 hours. The Revo is based along the same lines as earlier Psion models, but with considerable cosmetic and technical improvements. You operate this organiser with the 14 touch-sensitive buttons that border its screen or by using the stylus to tap onscreen buttons and menus. Psion has made every effort to keep the operational controls above the keyboard, thus maximising the space available for keys. Still, typing on this small keyboard requires much getting used to, and the keys' tactile feedback is not very satisfying. Testing for this review, it was possible to type memos, make appointments, add addresses and create a sample spreadsheet using the Psion's built-in applications. Agenda and contact information automatically synchronises with your PC. For other files, such as those made using the Psion's surprisingly advanced word processor and spreadsheet applications, the PsiWin software transfers and converts the files to a PC-compatible format, such as Microsoft Word or Excel. The Revo's PsiWin software is also compatible with Lotus SmartSuite, WordPerfect, dBASE and more. Psion licences its EPOC operating system from Symbian, so the interface is not as instantly obvious as with a Microsoft Pocket PC/Handheld PC based device. Howev
Advantages: Good quality tissues, strong menthol-like scent, gentle on skin Disadvantages: None
...I've always been a fan of Kleenex Balsam tissues, and l was delighted when I discovered the Kleenex Balsam Fresh tissues which included menthol. However, when struck down with a nasty cold I needed some decent tissues - I wanted them in handypacks to carry in my bag, and the Boots branch I was in only had the Boots own brand Ultra Balm, or Lotus Olbas. As the Lotus Olbas were on buy one get one...

...What are they?
A packet of folded handy pocket tissues.
These tissues are collaboration between the makers of Lotus tissues and Olbas. Together they have come up with the concept of integrating essential oil capsules into the tissues. Developed so that the tissues can release oil vapours to help relieve nasal congestion...
