agree  AdamiAkaPataflo: ahaha, penso anch'io. sulle prime non ho nemmeno capito dove fosse il problema, ma in effetti questo è un testo inglese e "handy" è, ahem, tedesco! :-)))

  -> Grazie! Vedi che conoscere millemila lingue non basta ma aiuta?? hehe

agree  Colin Rowe: Clear from context that the German (mis-)usage of the word is meant here. I have never seen this in English before and can only assume that there must be some German connection (German manufacturer?).
