5.0 out of 5 stars One man movie with nice plot and lots of tension, 11 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All Is Lost [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
I am giving five here because I thought I wouldn't be surprised by any "silent movie". Redford made a movie that builds tension while at the same time he speak almost nothing.

One man movie with nice plot and lots of tension.

I really enjoyed this one. However, it might be hard to follow the plot if you are not a native speaker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff for making notes on printed text, 11 Aug 2014
This is really great tool if you want to make some notes on printed text. BB nib makes it flow over the text and the ink stands out (however, be warned that in case of low light it might be hard to read).

4.0 out of 5 stars Just watch it, 12 Jun 2014

This review is from: The Act of Killing [DVD] (DVD)
If you think that there is something like consciousness be prepared to watch people who are not quite into this kind of idea. Killing lots of people and feel comfortable with that - no problem here.

I am huge fan of Lily Allen and this record is not an exception when it comes to the quality of the album. Very consistent, really good as a background music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, really nice, 12 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
But ... I hate all these explanation on second plan done by main character. Please, don't treat me as a stupid. And the range of different poses played by main characters is really limited. After third episode you can expect the way they will act in particular context.

Anyway, quite interesting, I am still waiting for second season.

One note for non native speakers. The complexity of language is rather high. Lots of very uncommon and complex words. Sometimes you have to guess the dialogs by the context of the whole scene. Especially when law and bill related topics are discussed.

Monster Inspiration Passive Noise Isolating Over-Ear Headphones (Black, Multilingual)
Offered by Recordcase

4.0 out of 5 stars Great headphones but I hate active noise cancelation, 12 Jun 2014
These headphones are just great. One, huge improvement comparing to Monster by Dre is the ability to turn noise cancelation on/off. This is really something you want to pay attention to. If you run out of batteries - no worries. Just turn cancelation off.

As of the noise cancelation and bass boost. Bass is great, deep, blows your head off. Noise cancelation - I hate it. When you try listen to some classical music, forget it. The noise produced by headphones is really frustrating. You can hear this slight sound (the noise) in background and this is something that kills the joy of peaceful music played by Inspiration. In that case, I have to turn off the cancelation.

Works as advertised. Simple connection (just plug fire wire), formatted for OS X, can work as time capsule. one word, second word, third word :)


Xcode 4 Cookbook
Xcode 4 Cookbook

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical cookbook, 25 July 2013
This review is from: Xcode 4 Cookbook (Paperback)
When it comes to the content of this book, I would vote here for something between three and four stars. Why? Well, first off all, the idea of the book is really good. Sometimes, you simply don't fell like getting through all the details is a right thing to do. Sometimes, all you need is just a quick recipe of how to do things. But, as I said, quick recipes are all you want. And here come drawbacks of some of the recipes in this book. They are simply too long. At some point you just feel like you have lost a track of what's really happening (e.g. Building iCloud application - this recipe has 50 steps!). Of course, this is just an extremum. On the other hand, you have very useful recipes (very short ones) regarding instrumentation. OK, you just get some basics in case of this topic, but if you haven't used Instruments never, ever before, it will be just enough.

There is one more thing I haven't found quite useful. Recipes that focus on building applications. The point here is, that this kind of stuff shouldn't come into this book in a first place. This kind of approach focuses too much on the overlay architecture rather than on small pieces.

On the other hand, there is a part that I strongly advice to people who are starting their experience with XCode, iOS and all that stuff. That is, "Packaging and Deploying Your Application". If you try to do it by yourself, it becomes something that you will remember for your life :) And, this is the place where this book should definitely, help you.

For me, personally, this book is not a cover to cover one. I have found here few nice ideas, but I can't say that all the topics and their explanations where breath takers. Some of there where simply too long, some of them where just right, and some of them really surprised me in a positive way.

One more remark. This book is a typical cookbook, so, do not expect deep and detailed analysis of the topics.

For me, this book is like 3-4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely good ink flow, 19 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This pen is really great. It is light, good looking, cheaper version of m405. Nib is made of steel. It's little bit scratchy comparing to m405's golden nib, but it doesn't affect the writing. Just one remark. This pen is rather small one, so make sure it will actually fit correctly in your hand.
