4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value for money., 13 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of course, this is no iPad, Samsung or whatever but, at the price, it is amazing. It operates at an adequate speed and has a reasonable amount of space. I have docked a star because it comes rooted and in developer mode - which was great for me but some people might find that degree of control a bit intimidating and might even result in doing something ill-advised. There is also a bit of a peeve that (as with so many) the main memory is set up as a virtual external storage and this makes the real flash memory card a little difficult to use effectively.

Still, that all said, it is certainly a great way of testing the water if you haven't used a tablet and want to try out an Android.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book for seriously committed Nerds, 25 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is well presented and his a major plus in that it provides a reasonable amount of repetition - gradually providing repeated instructions in abbreviated form to encourage you to remember how to do it. Be aware that there is a lot of implied references to Objective-C and Objective-C constructs - this is not the author's fault but is the nature of OS X programming (and Swift, in particular). This is *not* a beginner's book.

The latest version of Interface Builder has clearly been designed to allow development as presented once you have started a New Project but Hillegass (as every other manual I could lay my hands) insisted on deleting the provided window and coding through a manually created Xib (Nib) file, which might be better Model-View-Control programming but I found it frustrating that it didn't seem to be making full use of the Interface Builder, as provided. (In fact, I'm far from convinced by this MVC approach: I've encountered it in Joomla programming too, and it just seems to lead to excessive complexity - what's wrong with old fashioned OOP, I say.) So, I docked it a star.

But, if you're serious about OS X programming (or iOS, for that matter) and don't want to go whole hog and learn Objective-C itself (or already know it), then this is probably the right book for you.

Paretsky's usual high standard. The subject was maybe a little over-technical for her and, as a consequence, a little far fetched - but fun and good reading all the same.

Clear, straightforward presentation - a lot more so than the tutorials on the Joomla! home site.

It does the job and at a relatively low price. It *is* noisy but, to some extent, you get what you pay for.

This review is from: The Bayeux Tapestry (Hardcover)
A very thorough treatment of the subject with a clear presentation of the tapestry. It may be a little heavy-going for those who are looking for a more general overview.

Wow! The starting point was an artist whose audience paint on her body - not your everyday experience! Sara's normal complex weave of characters and sub-plots. Worth reading

4.0 out of 5 stars Sara Paretsky never fails to deliver, 4 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sara Paretsky never fails to deliver. Only 4 stars because I felt a little as if she was working to formuila ... but a great formula, none the less. Perhaps, in this case, the final ending was a little weak - but an enjoyable read.
