1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 16 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bricked itself in an hour - very common problem. Don't buy. Overpriced and poor sync with google. Don't go near.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent keyboard but just one gripe..., 14 Mar. 2012
All the other reviews on here complaining about the keys being too hard are rubbish. The ones complaining about the keys not working are just complainers: if it doesn't work send it back. Simple.

This keyboard is excellent value for money and feels reasonably sturdy. Works straight away when you plug it in (even on linux).

The problem with this keyboard is that it doesn't have any proppy up legs at the back so you cannot have it on an incline like with every other keyboard that has ever been made. If it had this it would be 5*. Otherwise, I'm just going to have to improvise.

Great keyboard, great value - just missing one vital feature!

Gives everything you need to know about parallel patterns. Must read for all working in this area. Doesn't age at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rewrite of the docs, 14 Jan. 2012
This book is just a rewrite of the OpenCL specification - wouldn't really recommend it. Would definitely recommend Heterogeneous Computing with OpenCL which is much smaller and better written. Also, this book doesn't talk about thing such as device fission. It does however provide a good overview of the whole OpenCL ecosystem, and, gives a very good outline of memory, execution etc. Useful if you dont have the ability to print the specification.

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 14 Jan. 2012
Provides everything you need to know. Significantly more succinct than the 'OpenCL Programming Guide'. Contains excellent examples and outlines - especially of the underlying example. It isn't just a rewrite of the specification.

2.0 out of 5 stars A round about way of saying nothing, 14 Jan. 2012
This book could be written in one sentence. "It's not about what computer you have, it's about how it's connected."
Very random walk about the economics of the internet, giving dull examples of websites that use cloud - never really summarises it is what he's saying nor does he make a cogent argument. It's just a description of the internet plus some history in the front to fill out the page count. Really not very interesting, especially if you have even a remotely technical background.

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Get Past the First Ten Pages, 5 Sept. 2010
Couldn't get into this at all, it was incredibly self-congratulatory and pompous (as another reviewer mentioned I think). I think I know all I need to from the prologue...he also keeps referring to the book as a paper. It's not.
