5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Survey of Big Data & NoSQL, 16 April 2013
This is a very readable, very comprehensive look at what is currently a very hot topic. Importantly, it deals well with many of the key ideas, such as the CAP theorem, clarifying important areas of mis-understanding. It also is very practical in emphasis, discussing the costs and weaknesses of different non-relational approaches, as well as their strengths.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice Display - Pity About the Software, 8 April 2012
I have had a TomTom Go 1005 for just under a year. The display and navigation is very nice when it works. However, as some people may already know, there has been a problem with the software for most TomTom models since the end of March, resulting in frequent and complete failure of the device to find the GPS signal, rendering it almost completely useless. TomTom have released a couple of updates, but, as yet, they have failed dismally to correct the problem. They have also failed to give any significant apology, let alone offer even token compensation for the inconvenience caused. I would suggest that nobody consider buying any TomTom until you have seen reviews confirming consistent and long term reliability.
