5.0 out of 5 stars Something quite unique, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is absolutely a must-have for couples, families or for when you're planning a night in with your mates.
This game has 6 different sports: wake racing, football, tennis, bowling, shooting and climbing. All of them are brilliant on their own, although you will find that some are harder than others.
Although you have a "Career" mode in which you play part of different teams competing on one different event after another, as soon as you unlock all sports, you are free to play any of them, either alone or with someone.

Although quite simplistic, this is so much fun when playing with someone. One of the most unique games I have bought in a long long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic display. Quality/Price excellent, 28 April 2010
Firstly the monitor looks absolutely gorgeous. The design is quite overwhelming. The foot stand is from a transparent material, giving the impression that the monitor is floating. Also, there's a frame surrounding the screen, from the same type of material, which adds to the absolutely gorgeous design. I won't even comment on the fact that it's amazingly thin.

Image quality is impressive (thinking that it has a relatively low price compared to other similar 23" screens). Also, you can increase the luminance so that if you're watching a movie and you're standing on a couch 2-3m away, you'll still see the beautiful colours and everything (even in darker scenes). Yes, I've seen better, but on displays worth at least £600.

What I don't like is that, to leave the design as it is - impressive -, the guys from Samsung dumped the old-fashioned menu buttons in favour of touch-sensitive buttons. Yes,they look awesome. When you touch the portion of the screen where a button is, they all fade up one after the other, creating a very nice view. BUT, they are so damn slow, it's impossible not to get annoyed while you're navigating through the menu.

All in all, I strongly recommend the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good introduction to the operating systems world, 23 Dec. 2009
I had the opportunity to read through different books regarding the subject and, while I must admit that each and every one of them has its pros and cons, Operating System Concepts provides the reader with a very solid introduction to the subject. Each chapter is very well structured, mainly on examples from real OS's like Solaris, Linux, Win XP or Mac OS X. Reading through the book, one will notice that some parts are repeated over and over again, but I must stress that I find this a very good thing because it keeps the reader with former issues fresh in their mind. Also, at the end of each chapter, there are some really interesting programming exercises in which the author engages the reader to modify kernel functions from different open source OS's. The code examples in the book are great and very good explained. (mostly C, but Java as well).
Sometimes, the reader will have the impression that the author is advertising Sun's OS, Solaris, because of the big number of examples from it and the good reviews he gives to different aspects of it.

All in all, I definetly recommend it. I will actually buy it for myself. I'm currently reading a library copy.
