1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 13 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Big Win Baseball (App)
This game is not a game at all, but a rip-off of statistics-based auto-run fantasy/manager software for kids. It is unlikely to appeal to anyone with an effective intellectual age over 5 years.

This guide is for beginners, but very soon runs out of useful information. It is simply too basic to be of much use. All of the information could have been condensed into 3 A4 pages.

2.0 out of 5 stars Onerous, 13 Jun 2013
This app is very onerous if one is used to Google's slick performing apps. All it has manage to unlock thus far is my frustration. The interface on a Kindle is far from user friendly. Amazon would do well do do a deal with Google or Mozilla for a better search engine or browser - Silk is simply rubbish.

This is supposedly an upgrade from the previous version, but it doesn't work well with other apps. It appears that there may be conflicts as the other apps stop working when you use this one. The jury is still out for me...

This review is from: Latex (Paperback)
This is a very good primer to a very good software application. There is a free manual available for Latex on the internet, but this is better organised and presented.The format is a bit larger than I expected and feels like a school textbook of old. Of course, this is a collaborationist product, being created on Wikibooks. One essentially pays for printing and binding.

I'm not entirely certain of what is is app is for, or more useful for than any other. It appears to be just more of the same. When one already has an adequate app for the purpose this seems superfluous.

This review is from: Huawei Wi-Fi Repeater (Accessory)
This product is a doddle to set-up. It may be because I also have a Huawei WiFi router, but it took no longer than 3 minutes to complete the set-up and there was no intricate tinkering with the settings in the web interface necessary. Of course, one is in danger of prematurely posting a glowing review. However, having struggled in vain to set-up a different WiFi-N Repeater and eventually returning it, the experience with this repeater has been nothing but positive. I plugged-in the repeater to an electrical socket in the same room as the router for set-up. Once set-up, I simply moved to another electrical socket and it initialised perfectly. This repeater does not link to the computer via RJ45 cable and is therefore a true wireless repeater. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUUJQZ_KJDI for a short set-up video. Set-up is really that simple. I had the range extension independently verified by a technician, who confirmed the efficacy of the product.

This DVD is so much better than watching edited reruns on TV. You only realise what you've missed on DVD.

It keeps reporting advertisements found, but that's about where it ends. At least it is free. I wouldn't pay for this...

1.0 out of 5 stars Pirate or Grey Product, 6 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having repeatedly and unsuccessfully attempted to set this product up, despite the seller's guidance, I have come to the conclusion that this product/item does not perform in a manner fit for purpose. This product fails for a complete lack of manufacturer support. The set-up instructions are very poorly drafted and the lay out adds to the confusion. Since the manufacturer is nowhere identified, I doubt whether this product should be sold in the EU at all. It is very strange that the manufacturer doesn't even claim intellectual rights on this item. None of this is the seller's fault, though I would expect the seller to be able to refer the user to the manufacturer for product support. The RJ45 cable is about the only part that is fit for purpose.
