2.0 out of 5 stars No UK plug for charger! Otherwise great (4-5 stars)., 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does NOT come with a UK plug!

Otherwise this would get 4 or 5 stars. Battery life isn't great, but it easily lasts the day on my wrist: I recharge it at night.

When I first got the watch, I couldn't charge it. Try plugging the USB lead into a running computer: this got over the initial problem and is now fine from either a wall socket or a computer.

Excellent product: good sound, great battery life. You get used to having the weight around your neck pretty quickly, and the controls are simple to use.

Unicorns are supposed to be friendly creatures, surely? Don't be so sure: and don't assume that the countryside is a green and pleasant land, either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great short, 31 Oct. 2013
As usual, the Laundry has some surprises in store for Bob, and as usual, they're not good. Allege great novella from Stross fast and furious, with laughs along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for novice kernel hackers, 17 May 2011
This book gives an excellent overview of the modern (2.6.35+) kernel series. It's aimed at developers wishing to make their first foray into the kernel, and assumes a good knowledge of C (the programming language) and architectural concepts. It does a great job in explaining not only the design of key parts of the kernel, but also the reasons for the design. There is some historical discussion as well, to allow legacy pieces of kernel design to be understood, but if you're planning to hack older kernels, this probably isn't the book for you.

Great sections on locking, memory access, devices, etc. - although it's not primarily a reference book, it can certainly act in that capacity as well. The author notes that the book _can_ be read non-linearly, but as there is quite a lot of back-referencing, you'll probably want to read it from the front to the back (at least first time round).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 27 Oct. 2010
I'm using two of these in bridge mode to provide access across my house to a second network. Took a bit of configuration, but once working, completely error-free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic price on some brilliant headphones., 20 Sept. 2010
As soon as I started using these, I had a "wow!" moment. They're certainly better than the output my phone seems to be able to reproduce, and they're great for high-noise environments, too, even with the standard buds. I can't recommend them highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners, but an excellent work, 5 Sept. 2005
This review is from: The Postmodern Bible (Paperback)
This book is not for those who are new to the concepts behind postmodernism: neither would I suggest it for people who are starting on biblical criticism, as it assumes at least some knowledge of current (or recent) trends in the field. Having said that, this is an excellent introduction for those wishing either to see how one or more of the postmodern critical methodologies with which they are familiar can be applied to biblical criticism, or for someone looking to expand their understanding of the latest critical developments in biblical studies.
A variety of approaches are covered, including structuralist, post-structuralist, reader-response, psychoanalytic, feminist, womanist, deconstructionist and ideological. Although a grounding in the principles of at least one of these is probably a good idea before tackling this book, the differences (and links) between them are well-explained, and most readers are likely to find something that is new to them.
