5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 28 Jan 2009
When you see the television in a shop, connected to the same digital feed as the other 20,30 or 100 televisions you are never too sure that it will look like that in your living room. I have over 300 DVD's and I do not see Sony making any offers to swap them over to blue-ray for me. The upscaling of both DVD and non-HD satellite pictures is truly amazing. I will possibly spend the next few weeks playing with all the settings and options, but out of the box, connected with 2-scart cables and one HDMI the initial impression is that this hits the spot.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best possible introduction to security., 11 Nov 2001
Should be added to the list of required reading for CEO's and CIO's of all companies that work with "systems" of any type.
The book has been written in a manner that both groups of people could understand. There are masses of references for those who want to go deeper.

1.0 out of 5 stars Basic, with little or no value in the real world, 11 Nov 2001
This is the most trivial book that I have ever read on the subject. The table of contents is the most valuable element of the book. The actual contents have only a weak connection with reality. Working as a consultant, I only hope that more people read and implement the ideas in this book. This would then provide an endless stream of work to implement solutions that work.
