Getting Started with OAuth 2.0
Getting Started with OAuth 2.0
by (Computer software developer) Ryan Boyd
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.50

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough content - book too small, 19 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting book on OAuth, covers the basics, etc., but is very thin (less than 70 pages), and you can learn just as much from the RFC as you can from this book.

I would have liked more code examples, more concrete implementations - maybe building an OAuth 2.0 server from scratch, discussing security implementations etc.

Not worth it at this price point - maybe for less than £10.

It's Lego, it's a mug - what's not to love

4.0 out of 5 stars Very smart, 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very smart looking, but a little tight putting on and doing the buttons up. It will do the job (for one night)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, solid piece of furniture, 2 May 2014

A nice, solid piece of furniture. Looks good in my room!

Plenty big enough to put a large screen tv on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother - less than 20 pages, a rip off at any price, 28 July 2011
A complete rip off - not only is there hardly any content to this so called "book", the content that there is is poorly written, biased, and badly formatted to boot.
I wanted an atlas for my Kindle - if you want one too, I suggest you look elsewhere, and steer a clear path away from this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this album, 17 May 2010
This review is from: Giant Steps (Audio CD)
See the title - if you have a single indie bone in your body, this is a must own album.

Listen to it again and again and it simply rewards you with its sheer staggering genius. Every track blends seamlessly into the next one. There is no clear stand out track on this album, because they all stand out. OK, if I had to choose, Barney.

I met the band once - I went to a gig round about the time that Wake Up came out. I was jumping around at the front with a Lazarus t-shirt on - got me backstage, as I already knew their earlier stuff. And arguably this is their finest moment.

Forget Oasis, this is *the* best album from Creation records, ever. Period.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, almost 3D performance, 18 Jan. 2006
Just hooked up the set to Sky+, and the performance is exquisite.
Scenes look truly 3 dimensional in places.
Can't wait to try it with a true HD source!
couple of (minor) gripes - I can't get to grips with the Ambilight feature. Also the screen is very unforgiving on a low quality signal - but feed it a decent high quality, high bit-rate stream from DVD or Sky (preferably in native) and watch it shine.
