4.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded expectations, but limitations, 1 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Far exceeded my expectations. It connects with my iPhone and shows notifications of incoming calls, text messages. It also shows the time, number of steps, an estimate of calories burned and estimated distance travelled. There's a choice of styles for the text to the shown on the watch.

There are two key downsides. The app needs some work. I've still not been able to get the device to record my personal data (weight, height, gender) without throwing an error which means the calories are out.

The display is also unreadable in sunlight which limits the device's use outdoors.

For the price, I'm delighted - I'd consider buying a similar device with a brighter screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars delicious!, 11 Jun. 2015

I have two coffee machines (at home and work) and this is easily the best capsule coffee on the market. Delicious, and you don't need milk! It doesn't taste synthetic and is better than much if the milky coffees served up by high street coffee shops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good replacement, stand-alone light, 11 Jun. 2015

Brilliant - I use it submerged below my built (and broken) Juwel lighting unit. Good light and low energy usage. Easy to fit.

Easy to set and works well. We use it with Gradwell's VOIP service. Our Gigaset system kept disconnecting, but no problems here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good sound, but keep falling out, 11 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound quality is good, and they pair easily. Unfortunately, despite fiddling with the various parts and sizes (with no instructions) the feel uncomfortable and are insecure, sometimes popping out of my ears. I walk, but I'm not running with them. They're heavy compared to usual earbuds which doesn't help their stability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back on form, 1 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a native of the North East of Scotland, I've a special affection for this series. The last book, however, I found disappointing: the characters seemed to be parodies of themselves, so extreme as to be unbelievable. The crime descriptions stepped over a line which made it difficult to read.

This book, however, is right back on form. Great personalities, wonderful character interaction, a good storyline and a thrilling ending. Highly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but now outdated, 17 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Laravel Starter (Paperback)
A very good guide to the basics. However, it predates Laravel 5 (the current release at the time of writing) and therefore is no longer of much use to beginners as the examples simply don't work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bloated and unreliable, 8 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TuneIn Radio Pro (App)
I've used this app pretty much since day one and it was the benchmark. Sadly it has become bloated and unreliable. Favourites are slow to load, car mode can't be defaulted and I've no idea what the (seemingly unmoderated) social network is supposed to do. I've switched to simple radio.

3.0 out of 5 stars B2C Great, B2b not so good., 20 Jun. 2014
In fairness this book has some good general advice and the approach has value regardless of what business you are in.

Howver, the review by KindleLover has it spot on. For those of us selling B2B much of the advice is limited in its use. I was dismayed that LinkedIn was dismissed at the end of 2013 as an emerging network. It's already almost as big as Twitter and has a much higher net worth and relevance for many businesses. There's no real advice there or detailed analysis of the context.

Similarly most of the examples are consumer focused. It's not that the advice isn't good, it's just that the value of the practical examples are lost.

Worth a read but doesn't quite deliver the blueprint for dealing with the proliferation of social networks and dealing with their unique aspects it promises.

Scrum: a Breathtakingly Brief and Agile Introduction
Scrum: a Breathtakingly Brief and Agile Introduction
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, well written overview, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Many project management and technology books are padded out with background and discussion which are of little more than academic benefit to the end user. Often it seems primarily to justify 600 pages and a cover price of £40+.

If your interest in Scrum is practical this book does exactly what it says: it provides a primer so you can get started with the process and a reference guide. We need more books like this!
