Look you cant go wrong with this for only a few pounds. Very good. Got it for someone, they use it all the time still looks good. I would say it will last the year and then will need to be repliased. but for the price, what more do you want.


Belkin Wemo Home Automation Switch for Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch and Android Devices

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not reliable., 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like Belkin products, but this wemo is just "crap". When I first got it, every 2-3 days it would need to be re set up, after about 7 days and a few reinstalls it still did not work great. Then came an update for the firmware. Hoping this would fix it right! - NO! now my devise just wont work, it never shows up on the app. Flashes blue and red. Contacts with the phone, but not app and just will not work. This is just not a good product from belkin.
I would also highlight, they know this, as it's already been phased out in the USA, and a new wemo insight is been lunched.

My advice, do not buy this. Wait another year till the iron out all the issues. And never buy this model. it is "crap".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read., 26 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off, I got the paperback 2011 copy, Perrow, C. notes that this preface of the 2011 book has been updated from the 2005 book to include BP oil spill, economic meltdown and global warming. (this may help you pick which copy you want) I dont have the 2005 copy so cant say that was covered there.

Short Review;
This is a great book, Perrow, C. makes good use of reference though in some cases an academic may find the references not to be of a great source, such as the use of blogs from the web!
This aside Perrow, C. like his other books, provides for an excellent read, discussing topics of great merit, while he dose include political views on some topics but needs to do this to talk about decentralization of high-risk populations, and how critical infrastructures will need to change. Perrow, C. clearly keeps his book within the context of the USA but his views can be used though the world (mostly).
Perrow, C. discuss the reduction of vulnerabilities in the fild of - natural, organizational, and deliberate (terrorist) disasters and this book is aimed for a broad array of readers from risk management students to practitioners and even just an interested reader.

Well done Perrow, C. looking forward to whats next!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, 21 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good book for communications, ive seen the last Ed did not get great review but i did not own a copy so i can not compare them im sad to say, but overall i found this book very good. Im not going to tell you the contents as all that info can been seen in the preview, What i will say is i found while at times the book will have Refs to other authors, they do not really uses refs that often, so as an academic book i found it lacking in some areas. That said the book has a lot of information and really covers most areas of communication in organizations. This is the sort of book i would recommend for anyone starting out looking at organizational communication, but for anyone that has worked or studied in this area i would say the book will be found lacking in depth.
Hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this watch (got 3 of them for presents), 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great watch, and i got it at a good price from amazon. Its a Nice size on the wrist, and the watch face seems of normal size to me (though my last watch as a g-shock so theses my be a bit big anyhow)This is very good quality and is not that heavy on the wrist, orange is nice as well.

Watch is easy to read, and its cool that you can see the other number for the dates,

When you hold this watch or have it on, you really know it is not a fake, and i like that idea as i am using it as presents. Also comes in a nice box ready to gift rap.

Im happy with this watch and would by it again.

As to the workings of the watch i really cant say as i said there gifts, but hope this review is of some help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy, 14 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are very good, with in the box these is 5 packs of 10 tabs. The used by date on the ones i got are for 2017, so im happy with that.
I did not get a bad taste of them when i tried it and found the tab was dissolved in the water after around 20 mins, but as has been noted before water temp will effect this, and this was cold out of a tap.

Overall seems like a good product and id get em again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Im happy with this game as a COD fan., 14 Nov 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fist off it was hard to decide should i give this 3 or 4 stars... Very very hard, so in the end i want with 4, for the one point been after all the problems getting it installed i did have fun in the first few hours of game play.. but really the install was a lot of unwanted stress..

If you dont want to read all of this, my most important point would be that:

1. On my PC the CDs where hard to install, for ages the pc would not read CDs had to take them out put them back in to drive over 3 times, this happened on both CDs and has never happened with anything else before...Lots of stress :(

2. the game seems a lot faster (in its game play) then before, BO1 felt just slow at times in aiming and moving around, this is alot faster and the smaller maps increase this feeling of speed as well as everyone is closer together (on the maps ive played so far, cant say this is for all of them yet)

Full review:

First of my PC fits the requirements, it is around 3 years old, so its not a top of the line pc by any means, though.

Game came fast from Amazon, so all well there.

In side box is the code for the game + free extra map! As is known, game is around 12 GB in size, It took my PC 45 approx Mins to install on steam. There was a small problem where my DVD drive did not want to read CD however after about 5 mins it just started (dont know why the delay was as of yet) This delay also kicked in on Disk 2.. was very annoying as game kept asking for Disk 2 and even though i was in PC nothing happened had to take CD out 3 times before it started to read it.. really dont know why this is my PC has never ever done this before.... So im thinking its BO2 CD and not my PC.. in the end though after some much on wanted stress it worked.

I know there have been reports of bad CD 2 with wrong game one it but cant comment on this as was not the case for me.

Game Play: Im going to update this post as it goes, but based on the lack of comments, i though i would get this up fast, should there be parents out there thinking of this as a Xmas present or something!

Multi-player: Ive started with the Multi-player level so far ive found no problems and have not hit a hacked server yet (with in the first hour of COD MW3 this had happened to me!) Game play on my PC is running fine, i would see an improvement from BO1 and some points taken from MW3, game is more fast paced (very fast shooting)then before, the maps ive been on so far, seem smaller then MW3 etc but there is still open areas for the snipers out there! Stuff like calling in air support etc has been improved on now, as it dose not slow you down so much AKA all adding to the fast shooting etc.

Domination, is very good in this game, you now play 1/2 with on one side and then swap to the other side of the map, keeps it a lot more even than before!

Im sorry to keep this short but am only playing this from today, so i will add to this over next week or so.

Zombies: WOW this is fun, really good fun, ive only just started on this part, so im going to wait till update it over next few days.

Single player:
So far, it is ok, there is a lot of video parts that i dont care for too much, but one part i do love about it is that, before each mission you can pick the weapons you want on that mission! very cool idea as you dont get such with a gun you hate and need to swap from the get go!
Update on this, Yes there is well too many video cut scenes in this part of the game, really i played a mission for around 10 mins and had also over 10 mins of a video crap to watch of people talking... really dont like this, really slows the game down when it comes to single player...

Last Comments,

I like this game but ive liked all the COD games, though as i type this BO1 was not one of there best, this has been improved, And so im happy with it, and will be playing less of MW3, This said, I am saying Less MW3 still has something over this game, that i have not put my finger on yet! but when i do know you will too!

Overall, this is a fine game and should your child not have it, it would make a good Xmas gift im sure. for everyone else, well its up to you if your a cod fan or not, if iwas you id give it a try!

UPDATES :

Graphics - this is something i did not pick up on at first, but personally i think MW3 had better graphics, dont get me wrong, there is a lot of content in the graphics however and this is a BIG but and is hard to explain, but the graphics are less "real" all the textures seem wrong, like there is a train in one part and it looks so fake something i am use to seeing in games like 6 years ago, its a big step back from MW3, now btw dont get me wrong MW3 had its downfall in graphics as well but personally i think BO2 has dropped the ball on some small things here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Was a present for someone, 13 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this for someone but, since then they have come back to me a few times and said how much they loved it, so I though I would pass on the message.

They have used it a few times, the recipes are good I'm told, but also they loved it as just a book to read, there are great images used and they said it was the kind of cook book you just pick up to flick though with a cup of coffee in the morning!

I'm can't say much more but I hope this helps, in short I would this this again, even thing I should get a copy now!
