5.0 out of 5 stars Superb sound, easy to use, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have used this microphone in a pub gig environment, so easily to fit and unclip I was switching between Tenor and Alto sax with no fuss. There is a fine wire leading to the connector and you need to take care of where the connector ends up on stage - I preferred to leave it on the floor - some have put it into a pocket - but I was also switching to guitar so not an option. There is a setting to change to the low frequency end of things, with that and some low end rolled off on the PA key noise was minimal and responsiveness through the playing range - excellent.

Very good value for money. Phantom power required of course - but a wide voltage range is supported.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my needs, and stylish, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having protects my Macbook from scratches using a SlickWraps skin, I also needed something for transporting and storing the macbook safely. This is absolutely perfect for my needs - will fit into another bag or briefcase easily, is stylish and easy. If you are using any form of bulky hard case or cover, it might be excessively snug. The clue is in the name, its a close fit!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product does not do what it says not the tin. It feels like it should when you first open it, but on my Macbook pro retina 13", yes it looked like it fitted in terms of where the keys are, but each key then has a 'ridge' around it. Apple design made a beautifully easy to use keyboard, this product completely takes that feel away. If you are working with your macbook in a high risk environment, lots of dust or potential for damp or spillage (e.g. a field worker or researcher etc) then it might be worth it. Otherwise you'll probably do what I did - try it and then bin it. Good job it only costs pennies - it was worth a try but it doesn't work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Set book for GCU Masters in Risk - highly readable, 22 Feb. 2014

As a set book for an academic course, you might expect this book to be a bit heavy going - but it really isn't. Very easy to read, well written and researched.

4.0 out of 5 stars Follow the video guide and its easy, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Follow the link to the web and get step by step video instruction on the fitting, and its easy to do. Particularly pay attention to "do not press down firmly until you are happy with the positioning." This product is not designed to protect against drops or similar impacts, it protects the alu casing from scratching and day to day wear and tear. I like it because it adds no bulk or weight. I then transport and store my macbook in a black leather Snugg wallet - which is excellent.


The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable
The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable
by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Use your own brain, persevere and challenge yourself., 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some reviewers have stated that the author "talks down" to the reader. If you look at his experience and track record, I don't believe this is intention but perhaps a consequence of how deeply he has considered his subject. Don't expect this book to provide you with ready made answers or methods - but allow it to challenge your own attitudes and approaches and it will add value to you. There are plenty of places where I found myself thinking - OK Nassim, so what's your point? Or how would I apply that? But it doesn't hurt to get your own brain turning. There are also times where stories are only vaguely relevant and could be much more succinct, but stick with it - there's usually a good point worth persevering for. There are times when the logic is a bit flawed - for example the point that if we thought rationally about the divorce statistics we wouldn't get married with an expectation of a lifetime of wedded bliss ahead. Well, what about those people who did think about that, and decided not to wed? Hey ho. There is plenty of value in here, but its not a free lunch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very academic - useful as a reference, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book spends a great deal of time explaining what the rest of the book is going to set out, and why it will be doing to a very high standard but in an approachable manner etc. Chapters follow a similar pattern. I have studied mathematical modelling at degree level and found that the book moved quickly into terminology and an assumed level of knowledge that is higher than the authors seem to believe is required. I'll be using it as a reference to support my work and studies at Masters level, and I'm sure it will provide a useful reference from time to time.

This review is from: Auditing (Paperback)
Ideal for students of professionals who are not trained auditors but want to structure their thinking more in line with an audit approach. As a risk manager, I work closely with auditors and of course carry out control effectiveness assessments. This book has helped to provide new insights and to provide guidance on a structured approach.
