2.0 out of 5 stars Poor sound!, 11 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live From Texas [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Good live performance, but sound quality very poor, particularly in the first ten minutes or so! Don't know why most dvd's have a low sound recording level.....seems a common complaint! Would return the item, but the cost of return postage from France makes it uneconomic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hamburg grit and great music!, 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I first saw this in the cinema, I thought it was harsh interpretation, particularly of John! Having thought back to Liverpool at that time and having read more about their early days, I now think this film is closer to the truth. Worth having just for the sound track!

A wonderful photographic record, shot with skill and sensitivity! Astrid always captured them in a way no other could! A treasure!

Great read! Well written, with an honest and informative input from Paul! I learnt a lot about the inter-group relationships and later negative influences, Yoko?

5.0 out of 5 stars First and Easy Steps!, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used both the VB and C++ editions, this publication is an essential 'first read'! Clearly written and illustrated, the content takes you through the essentials in, as the title, easy steps! This was my first call, followed by the SAMS and Microsoft publications (mainly for reference)! Not definitive,but highly recommended considering price and content!

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspired read!!, 22 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really enjoyed this autobiography! Nigel manages to accomplish what few others achieve, easy-reading narrative with detailed technical analysis. Also unusual among designer's, he highlights his successes, but also is very honest about less than satisfactory designs and describes in detail why they fell short! Rare and refreshingly honest account!

The book is beautifully produced with high quality photographs and cut-away renderings.

Recommended without reservation!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good text on PicAxe!, 1 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike other reviews, I found this book ideal when used alongside R.Hackett's practical guide to PicAxe projects! I found the text easy to access and full of useful information, going deeper into PicAxe theory than Hackett's more practical guide - the combination of the two publications takes the reader a long way towards successful PicAxe projects! There is a section using the inexpensive 'Schools Experimenter' board for a very extensive range of projects, simple and advanced, that provides an ideal way of getting up to speed with PicAxe programming and electronic circuit construction.

In all, recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value with limitaions!, 23 Mar. 2011
I bought this item purely for net access on the move and for storage of photographs while away! This it does fine, and bearing in mind it is a bottom of the range machine, performs well. I have topped the RAM to max and optimized the s/w, so speeds are acceptable. The included Samsung utilities for optimizing the m/c seem to work and keep things tidy. Normally using large monitors, the screen seemed very small to start with, when using photo software, but you get used to it and the display is very crisp and clear! The mouse pad for me is infuriating, over-sensitive and does to much! No better or worse than others equipped with the same. I have simplified its actions and when possible, use a mouse for tricky stuff.

Overall, a well designed and styled machine, with a very good price/performance ratio!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great technical approach!, 22 April 2010
This review is from: Ultimate Skiing (Paperback)
Bought this book to help with unpacking the physics of ski-ing - it does that exceptionally well! The subject is well explained with sound case-studies and easy reading style. As a relatively new skier, I found this book very useful! If you want to read about the science of ski-ing and thereby improve your understanding of why your ski's behave the way they do, then this book would be difficult to better. I'm from a scientific background and the sums and science seem to support the author's analysis of ski-ing dynamics! Great read!
