The Great Beanie Baby Bubble: Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute
The Great Beanie Baby Bubble: Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute
Price: £9.02

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating look at the Beanie Baby phenomenon, 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting look at what created the Beanie Baby speculation/bubble of the 1990s, the people at the centre of it most notably Ty Warner himself and the insanity, genius and random circumstances that came together to make it happen. Very relevant to any student of the bubble phenomenon as well as those interested in the broader aspects of how human psychology, sociology and economics meet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip off., 11 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worthless. About one regular page of material here. Not worth the time it takes to read it which is about one minute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting and Comprehensive., 29 Nov. 2013

Well worth reading for anyone who has heard of this mystery. The author has truly put in a lot of work and it shows. His conclusions could once and for all provide a plausible explanation for what actually happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb way to get into Infrared Photography, 12 Jan. 2012
Got the conversion done from ACS. Took about 4 weeks. Camera arrived back in perfect condition. The images produced are simply stunning with the otherwordly look of infrared and due to the enhanced color filter the skies are blue straight out of the camera. If I want traditional 720nm IR filter and that removes the "enhanced color" wavelengths of light (between 590 and 720nm) and obviously being a converted camera I dont need to use very long exposures as the sensor does not filter IR wavelengths. Superb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Value and great RAID performance!, 14 Dec. 2011
This is easily one of the best bargains when it comes to hardware raid. This card costs about 50% of what you would pay for the same features from most other manufacturers. It covers all the major RAID modes 1,0,5,10 etc. and is surprisingly easy to setup. Maintenance and management is via a web interface which is very easy to use. In all honesty this is one of those components you can simply fit and forget. I would definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing sound! Great features. A great solution for me!, 14 Dec. 2011
This is a definite increase in sound quality from my TV speakers, and my TV is a Toshiba which has specially produced Onkyo speakers that are a cut above the usual flatscreen units. Dialogue is at once much clearer, and more intelligible. Movies and TV shows really come alive despite what are in essence very small speakers. This helped in part by the superb wireless sub which is taught and controlled no matter what you throw at it. Buy these and you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but worth every penny! A must have for all computer musicians!, 14 Dec. 2011
Arturia are known for their amazing synth recreations and this pack is no exception. It contains recreations of most of the legendary synths from the early era of synthesis such as the Moog Modular, Minimoog, CS-80V etc. The recreations are incredibly detailed with exact "virtual" representations of each instrument allowing full interaction with the controls. The sounds are also very authentic, the virtual analogue engine providing an amazing rendition of those old analogue sounds. A must have for all computer musicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Studio Monitors!, 14 Dec. 2011
These are fantastic Studio Monitors and have a very neutral sound. Perfect for mixing and mastering audio/home studio use. They have surprisingly big and powerful sound despite their diminutive size.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent HD-DVD transfer of a horror classic., 29 Jan. 2008
There are plenty of reviews of the actual film over the net so I want retread that old ground too much. This is Kubrick's haunted house film. As always (forgetting EWS) Kubrick did not disappoint.
Re-watching this on HD-DVD I was struck by the beautiful landscapes and scenery that Kubrick recorded whilst making this. I had always liked this film but having only seen it on TV I had never really noticed the sumptuous beauty of it all. It really shows what the format can do. Well worth buying on HD-DVD (while you still can).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very effective., 23 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Dark Water [2003] [DVD] (DVD)
Much better than the hollywood remake. This is another atmospheric and deeply satisfying Japanese horror. A great follow up to the Ringu series.
