1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible retailers do not buy from them!, 15 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It concerns me greatly that I bought this product as a gift for someone else and now I am being hounded by the TV license people for not having a TV license - Digital Daffodil Ltd, should have informed me first before they went ahead giving my details to the TV license. I don't watch TV, I don't have a TV and I have no need for the rubbish that passes as TV entertainment.

The product itself - how the hell should I know how good it is - I don't have it!

I bought it as a present for someone else.

I 'm mad as hell, and ain't gonna take it anymore!

Advice don't buy from this retailers, unless you want to be hounded by the trolls at the T.V. licence department.

I don't have a TV get it!!!

WHY THE HECK CAN'T YOU GIVE 0 STARS - Amazon - I'm shouting this one at you. : (

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple but functionally good, 18 May 2012
If you need a funtional Mic that is cheap yet works well with online audio chat this item is great value. You will need to spend a little time getting the noise levels just right for you. Lightweight too! Overall a good little mic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the bunch, 27 Mar. 2011
WordPress is a fantastic blogging tool -Simple, easy and SEO friendly. But there is much, much, more to WordPress. It can be used as a full CMS framework. I have tried several CMS frameworks; none come close to giving you the fast development environment that Word Press can.
Professional WordPress Design and Development is the best book to harness the power of WordPress

If you are like me, you probably want to create your own customised websites, but:

1. You don't want to start from scratch (don't reinvent the wheel - that's already been done).
2. You want to create code modules/plug-in/custom functions that are unique to your site.

You can get 1,000's of WordPress plug-ins from the WordPress site, but if you also want to create your own plug-ins - well this is the book for you. The book teaches you, how to setup WordPress and the processes behind the CMS framework, it then takes you to the point and beyond of creating your own plug-ins and functions.

You can have it your way - you really can!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book to program your own social networking site, 11 Mar. 2011
PHP 5 Social Networking is simply a must buy for anyone interested in the intricacies of developing their own social networking website. You'll be grounded in developing your own simple yet effective framework,(yes you could plum for an off the shelf product, but building your own will make you into a real expert). This is a book you will have to come back to time and again, as there are gold nuggets which you will want to implement in your own work - I'm thinking about status streams - chapter 7.
Now all that is needed is the Social Networking Development for the mobile platform - and you'll have the perfect set.

Michael Schrenk has truly written a very special book

This book harness the power of PHP and CURL, to give you the ability to create webbots that till recently were only a mere pipe dream, now - if you have a good understanding of PHP and want to reach a level past your PHP Programming buddies - then get this book -
The detailed explanation is straightforward and easy to understand. The book concentrates in automating processes where intelligent software will do the work for you - need a website populating - the code in this book will assist you, need your server to SMS you if there is an intruder in your house - the code in this book will assist you and that's just for starters. Michael even discusses the legal implication of web bots and of course there is much more.

Computer systems are getting more and more powerful and A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) algorithms are now being developed for web applications, so web developers you are going to need webbots to help you create your powerful fantastic Web sites.

Read and Re-read most of all have fun!
