1.0 out of 5 stars Bundled articles from wikipedia, 22 Feb 2012
A company variously calling itself Alphascript Publishing and Betascript Publishing is taking articles from Wikipedia and publishing them as books. It would appear that the act of doing that is legal, but from the outside, many of the books give the appearance of having been put together by some automated system, because the titles (and presumably contents) seem to be comprised of a Wikipedia page forming the starting point for the book and then a load of other Wikipedia pages which are linked-to from that page. It's all very strange.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hobbled by the display, 20 July 2011
This book is all about typing in the example code for practise. Unfortunately on the standard kindle display the code scrolls off the right margin, making you have to scroll (a very awkward operation).

This makes the whole operation pointless.

As for the content, it's good - but you're better off either using the free website or paying for the PDF.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fried my Hard Drive, 23 Jan 2009
Just received one of these. It did not work with 2.5" or 3.5" drives and fried the 2.5" drive (no longer works in laptop).

Avoid at all costs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing, 15 Dec 2007
The interface & build quality are so much poorer than an ipod nano.

For the difference in price, buy a nano.
