Raspberry Pi Case - Clear Access to all ports
Raspberry Pi Case - Clear Access to all ports

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply perfect, 2 April 2014

It does its job. It protects the Raspberry Pi, and it does a pretty good job evacuating the heat.

Couldn't be happier. Besides, the fact that it is transparent adds a bit of a "geek" factor :).

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it is meant to do. Excellent value for your money., 2 April 2014

Nice and easy. Super quick delivery.

The cover matches perfectly the size of the phone. The stylus does its job but it is maybe to big to be carried around. The screen protectors are extremely difficult to fit.

In my opinion this is good value for your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure speculation. Just one person's opinion, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What Is HTML5? (Kindle Edition)
I am a software engineer and was expecting this text to be more engineering oriented. It turns out to be more about the philosophy of the web than anything else.

It is not even fun to read. Save yourself a couple of minutes and stay clear of this little article. There are much more useful articles on the Web.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect cable, 5 Dec 2012

Cable arrived in time and in perfect condition.

I needed it to get the sound out of my XBOX 360 directly, and in this way avoiding the latency introduced by the TV (for a guitar playing game).


Dexter - Seasons 1-5 Complete [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars High production values, highly addictive story lines, 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality of the series is astounding. The attention to detail, the well develop characters, the sound, the colors, all adds up for a fantastic experience.

Fantastic value for money. The DVDs include some nice extras like interviews with actors, directors, and technical members of the team. All very interesting to learn a bit about how complicated is to make good TV shows.

Not recommended for kids though: lots of blood and bad language!!!


A Picnic on Earth
A Picnic on Earth
by Rupert Morgan
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't explore the potential of the characters, 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Picnic on Earth (Paperback)
This book is a very light reading, too light for even a summer afternoon.

The story is set quickly and some of the characters presented feel fun and refreshing. However as soon as the story begins unfolding the fun ends. The story is meaningless, boring and definitely not entertaining or amusing.

Maybe for students of English as a foreign language.

Language Implementation Patterns: Create Your Own Domain-Specific and General Programming Languages (Pragmatic Programmers)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good if you already know about the topic, 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful book for people with a computer science background. Lots of things are taken for granted (Java, grammar definition, data structures, ...).

If you have used flex/bison (yacc/lex) this book will open your eyes to new modern technologies for language implementation

I find the writing style quite refreshing. I never felt bored while reading the book. The way the book is organized into patterns make it very easy to consume. Once you get used to the structure it is very easy to jump back and forth looking for the pattern that will solve your problem.

I'd recommend it to professionals rather than programming hobbyists.

Perfect in combination with the "dragon" book.

5.0 out of 5 stars It will make you a better engineer, 11 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let me start by saying that this book is not for everyone. It is a book for Computer engineers.

This book won't get you a job in Google or Amazon if you are not a good engineer, but if you are a good one this book will help you focus on the areas that really need your attention when facing an interview.

Don't read this book from cover to cover. Do all the exercise on a whiteboard, in different languages, think about the solutions, and check other sources. I guarantee you will end up being a much better engineer.

I absolutely love this book, and keep going back to it.
