2.0 out of 5 stars Too small, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sound is ok. Noise cancelation is ok but not great. They are the most uncomfortable set of headphones I've ever worn. Even after extended them and bending them they are still too tight. The plastic has started to split on one of the arms.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good case but reduces signal to phone, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice case, but it does reduce my wifi signal from 3 bars to 2 bars in certain places in the house. Also my GPS signal keeps dropping out when using the phone as a sat nav.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should have read the other reviews before buying, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have never returned a book to amazon before but have done after reading half of this book. I have read other Sams teach yourself books and have found them quite useful but this one is terrible. Each 1 "hour" session is about 10 minutes reading, would be even less if you skip were the author repeats himself on the previous page or two.

There is very little about objective-c so far as it is more about xcode, such as setting up a project and using version control. There are simple typos in the code, i.e. missing end brackets and also in one code section (page 76) an note from an editor was obviously ignored, so much so that the note from the editor is still in the source code "Suggest removing this. RMCG". I have given up reading this book (even though it will prob take 5 hours max to read cover to cover).

Added these to my logitech speakers. Made no difference at all. Speakers still make an annoying sound when my phone is in use

3.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS EDITION, 26 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this off amazon a few weeks ago and assumed it to be the most recent edition. There is new addition (2nd) called begining iPhone 3 development. If you have the most recent SDK (3.0+) do not by this book as there are many changes in it. The book its self is very good. I will be sending this back/selling it on and buying the more recent edition.
