As a father of three daughters who have free and open access to education, this really made me appreciate what my children have. I am now much more aware of the importance of education for all children. Bought this copy for my mum after Id listened to the audio version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great set of Blutooth headphones, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love them. Had a pair of Bose QC3's before. Got these because Id worn the QC3's four days per week for 2 years and they finally broke. Decided I wanted something wireless. Exactly what I expected.

Would be 5 stars if the battery lasted longer, or if it came with a spare battery (like the Bose QC3's did).

Also, if you've had a pair of QC3's in the past, these are a little tighter fitting, and the noise cancellation is not as good as the QC3's. But still a cracking set of headphones!

Love them.

DISCLAIMER: I know Marc and Martin.

Just what I'd expect from these guys. Short sharp and straight to the point.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible product. If I could give 0 stars, I would!, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Keeps losing connection the internet (remains connected to the WLAN but stops being able to get to the internet).

I've been on the Netgear forms and this is a known issue that LOTS of people are experiencing. Netgear has not commented on the forums and has not produced a fix.

I have to go through the setup process at least once a day. Abysmal!

VMware vSphere 4.1 HA and DRS Technical deepdive
VMware vSphere 4.1 HA and DRS Technical deepdive
by Duncan Epping
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.10

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch book - highly recommended, 23 April 2011
Firstly, I'm an infrastructure architect with a focus on storage, and I like technical material. I've no time for marketing and I don't care for material that contains inaccuracies and waffle.

With that in mind, this is a great book and I recommend it to anyone needing to understand VMware HA and DRS.

The chapters are very short and sharp, making it easy to read. I'm a big reader of technical books and short sharp chapters like these make it easy for me to pick up any time I only have minutes free and cover one or two chapters.

I've just finished skim reading it cover to cover and didn't notice any mistakes - which is quite strange. Mistakes annoy me, and fortunately this book didn't have any that jumped out at me, so top marks there.

My only gripe with this book is that it only covers the topics of HA and DRS - but I can't really complain as it is in the title ;-) However, I did speak with the authors and tried to encourage them to compile a more comprehensive work, but sadly such a task is huge (which I appreciate). Shame, as I've enjoyed this work so much that if they came to market with anything else I'd definitely buy.
