  1. As well as BFMTV (France's 24 hour news channel) already mentioned you can also go to www.pluzz.fr and France televisions and watch live French tv. All three also have apps for iPad/iPhone too if you have one. Direct and replay French TV on your computer, so no excuse not to watch it if you wanted to.

    I watched it too (fell asleep towards the end - too tired not necessarily because of the subject matter). Sadly I don't think that Sarkozy will win this election. Holland just insn't presidential enough, as I was told by a neighbour earlier.
  2. The mairie has access to a database online and will be able to tell you who owns the land.
  3. Yes, you can write to EDF to ask for it to be removed. My friends did exactly that last year. I can't remember though if they had to pay for it.
  4. I have a TT which I have found to be pretty good. But, I have just changed my mobile to a Nokia smartphone (the E5-00) which has Ovi-Maps gps/navigation built in for life. The maps are updated regularly for free. I've tried out the navigation in walking mode using the 3d map option and it was very good (also 2D, satellite and terrain options). I've yet to try the driving navigation as I'm waiting for my car holder. If you were going to use the Nokia Ovi-maps regularly as your car gps system then one of their models with a full sized screen would be better although I hate tactiles so have chosen a different model.

  10. Nearly every town in France I would imagine, certainly around here. Throughout the warmer months, not necessarily for May day.
  11. I think you'll find that even though you can copy the books between people/PCs you won't be able to open them to read them. I have a UK amazon account that I downloaded books to my Mac application but when I tried to copy the file to my Kindle on my different .com account it said it was registered to another user.

  12. Something to be aware of that I have discovered :

    I bought my 3g kindle from .com a couple of weeks ago, delivered to France. I had my region set to Europe. On trying the web browser and Kindle store on the device all worked fine as it picked up my home wifi connection. However, when I tried it out and about using the 3g (actually it was edge but that is neither here nor there) I could access the Kindle Store but I COULD NOT access the web browser as there were "local restrictions in force". I have now got around this by changing my region to UK using my BIL's address. Now all works fine.

    If I were to download any books from the Kindle Store I think I would browse and decide what I wanted to buy on my home computer as it is easier then go and do the purchase 'outside' using the 3g just to be safe.
  13. quote user="Simon-come-lately" How complicated, and expensive some peoples lives are !

    Take a look at this text from the 'Manage My Kindle' page on my Amazon account:

    Your Country

    If you're moving, you can change the country associated with your Kindle account.

    Current country

    United Kingdom

    Edit

    Simple - just change it. If you gave your Kindle to someone in another country they'd do the same thing.

    There are millions of people all over Europe who order their Kindle from the UK and use it in Europe (including France!) and Worldwide - without any problems. I fly all over the place and have never had a problem.

    Why on earth anyone would order their Kindle from the US when they can get it across the Channel I've no idea......

    Simon :-) /quote

    Because I live in France, have done for nine years, have no connection to the UK, no address in the UK and so it is the correct way to order a Kindle. Kindle UK won't deliver to France. I have ordered from .com because that is what you have to do, and I did it in order for my life to be NOT COMPLICATED by trying to cheat the system (and yes I fully understand about changing your location in Manage My Kindle)
  14. quote user JK:- "Well, that sounds very reasonable. Will you use the 3G or wifi to get books and do .com levy a charge for delivery outside the US?"

    You have to set what region you are in - so I am in 'Europe' region (as apposed to UK / US / Australia....) . It seems as though most of the 'free' books that are on amazon.com US region cost 2,30usd on amazon.com Europe region. This, I am told on the Kindle forum, is due to France imposing a charge on 3g downloads. Plenty of free books are available on other sites though.

    I am happy in the knowledge that I have ordered my Kindle 'correctly' should I encounter any problems.
  15. I paid in euros (new facility on Amazon.com - pay in the local currency of the credit/debit card used). I bought the 3g model with the Proporta waterproof (5m) cover and I paid a total of 211€ which includes p&p, taxes/import duties etc.
