1.0 out of 5 stars Oh and dialogue like "she was, 27 Oct. 2014
Weak book. A selection of well worn Star Trek clichés stuck together with cardboard cut out characters. Oh and dialogue like "she was... like a blond laura croft". I gave up after that line.

If you're looking for an audio book of the Narnia series then look no further. This collection is well produced and affordable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor production quality, 15 Feb. 2012
I bough the A1 for the following reasons - good battery life, higher resolution screen, no need for separate charger (charges of USB). In use the A1 more than met my expectations.

However there is a widespread problem with the A1 - poor production quality means that many of these devices have a problem with 'ghost fingers' on the touchscreen. This means that when you place a single finger on the screen a second 'ghost' finger also registers. This is really annoying and prevents the device from operating properly. There is no fix. Its a hardware defect that seems due to manufacturing issues.

Also I have to say the viewing angles of the screen are very poor. This shouldn't be too much of a problem, but they are soooo poor that it gets annoying.

Very disappointed as I expected more from a leading brand like Lenovo. I returned mine to Amazon for a refund.

I will say that I found the RMA and refund procedure at Amazon is simple, effective and hassle free. That is a big up for Amazon - other online retailers can be deliberately difficult to deal with when you need to return defective goods.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK - but just OK, 21 Nov. 2011
Bought this as a spare for my EP121. The pen is OK but accuracy is not as good at the one that came with the EP121. As well it seems a little flimsey. I only use the pen for OneNote so it does ok as a spare but if you're a graphic artist then look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound and video works a treat on Asus EP121, 30 Sept. 2011
Cant fault this. I use it with my Asus ep121 to connect to a standard HDMI-HDMI cable from my TV. Passes both sound and video through no problems. Also use it with a DVI-HDMI cable connected to my workstation monitor.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much theory, 11 April 2011
This is a good book if you are studying innovation for a college course. However as a hands-on business book its got to much text and not enough frameworks. As a result it isnt great if you are looking for something to help you implement innovation in your business.

2.0 out of 5 stars All theory- no practical insights or frameworks, 23 Mar. 2011
This book is simply a condensed tome of theories on strategy. It does little to inform about any practical approaches to applying strategy. The book will be of use to college students looking for a concise overview of theory. It will not however be of much use to someone looking for a practical framework for approaching strategic initiatives.

1.0 out of 5 stars A cross between an iPAD and a paper weight, 25 Nov. 2010
After a lot of research into 'cheap' Android slates, I bought one of these to see if there was any merit in the whole concept of slate devices. Given the unbranded nature of the device and the price point I wasn't expecting much. Yet still I was left very disappointed.

The G10 is a cross between an iPAD and a paper weight - that is to say it looks like an iPAD but functions more like a paper weight!!

Here is the low down...

Screen
The screen is a resistive multitouch screen - I can only assume that the multitouch is faked by the use of drivers. This results in a screen that is about as responsive as a dead cat. You can poke and prod it all you like but it ain't gonna get up and meow! Please note I am not a capacative touch screen chearleader - I have a smartphone with a resistive screen that is just a responsive and easy to use as any capacitive screen. There is no reason for resistive screens to be unresponsive, except when really low quality ones are used to save money (as in the G10).

Battery
1hr tops browsing the web with WIFI. Nuff said!

There is no point in talking about any other aspects of this device as without a good screen and good battery life it's about as much use as the aformentioned dead cat.

My advice? If you are serious about slates go for a good quality device such as an an iPAD or Galaxy Tab. Prices are high but if you want a slate that is of any use they're the only option at this point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to innovate!, 27 Aug. 2010
As an innovation trainer and consultant I can highly recommend this book. The content is fresh, practical and powerful. Forget the traditional approach to innovation - the Business Model Innovation Canvas used in this book will help you create an exiting new business or transform your existing one. I have even used it to help internal service departments innovate their service and deliver genuine value. I would also recommend that you bundle this with Marty Neumeier's Innovation Workshop (DVD) for an added insight into brand/design innovation.
