3.0 out of 5 stars Good Speaker, shame about the suction cup, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This speaker functions as well as one should expect, but a few factors let me down a bit:

1) The suction cup is EXTREMELY weak. Even wetting it before adhering it to my tiled bathroom wall does not keep it on there for long. If the suction is absolutely necessary for your intended use, I'd continue looking for a more suitable product.

2) The instructions for this product are only in Chinese. In order to determine how to use it, I googled for other bluetooth speakers which seemed to have the same button set-up. The most important thing to know is that in order to make the bluetooth signal visible, you need to hold the power button down until both the red and blue lights start blinking (5 seconds or so).

3) In a time when mini-usb is the nearly universal, this product uses the needly nokia-style charging point. This means that you now have a somewhat exotic usb charging cord to keep track of.

3.0 out of 5 stars A valiant effort, but..., 22 Sep 2007
...I found it to lack some of what I have come to expect from 3D software texts.

The positives about this book...

It provides a good overview of Blender and is very throughly illustrated. It contains information on features added with Blender 2.43 which can only be found in online forums otherwise.

But the book is structured in a somewhat irratating way.

The index of the book is not at all complete, so it does become frustrating when you want information on a specific topic. I have found myself either having to thumb through entire sections of the book to find the information I need (due to an index which really could have used a bit more consideration) or resorting in frustration to online resources .

As an example, I was searching for information on adding an audio track to my animation... nothing in the index whatsoever about audio... quite an oversight, I would think. I have encountered this looking for information on other topics as well.

Hopefully, this will not be a template for future publications by the Blender Foundation. Remember that proceeds from the book do go to the Blender Foundation, so that alone would merit buying the book, but even having said that... consider this book more an introduction and overview of the software, rather than an exhaustive and indispensable resource.
