2.0 out of 5 stars There is a lot of useful info in this book, 21 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is a lot of useful info in this book. Alas, it is difficult to find as there is no index. Even if there was an index, it wouldn't help much as there are no page numbers!
I eventually had to add page numbers manually, and then add these to the (very minimal) table of contents.
Now as for learning in one day, I suppose if you added up all of the time spent reading the book, it might total 24 hours. However, if you believe the title, then you are well on course to becoming a brain surgeon in a fortnight.
Like almost every other skill in this world, you only really learn by doing.
However, apart from that the technical content is very good, if you can find it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little stand, 8 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great little stand, works well for even quite large USB monitor.
Just a word of warning - DO NOT (like I did) force it open without reading the instruction sheet. There is a concealed button inside the end of the hinge to release the ratchet. It's a shame there was no sticker on the stand to warn users; I broke mine and had to buy another one. I will glue the first one to make a permanently open stand, quite usable if no longer conveniently portable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth a Read., 21 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simon Monk and his books need no introduction or recommendation from me. Other somewhat long-in-the-tooth electronics engineer/programmers like me will have come across many of Simon's books and articles.

What is different about this book, however, is the sci-fi "back story" which provides a wide range of pegs on which to hang the various circuits and experiments. It is proving an interesting and entertaining read, as well as bringing me up to date with current technologies.and suppliers.

For these reasons, I can recommend "Zombie Apocalypse" as a good bed-time read, as well as a useful source of ideas.

As a lifetime PC user, I was pleasantly surprised by how well well the iPad fitted in to my existing lifestyle.
I am using Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, and iCloud on all of my devices, with automatic synchronization between them. Not all of the Apps are as good as the corresponding Windows programs or web interfaces, but overall I am very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction., 26 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book got me up and running on Windows 10 in a day, and will provide a very useful reference for features which I have not had time to explore. It is a simple, practical guide which gets the job done without delving into a mass of technical detail.
For the price it is excellent value, and I can recommend it for both beginners and experienced users of previous Windows versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant., 14 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had many voice recorders over many years, and this by far the best. It is easy to use, without unnecessary complications and unintuitive menu options. If all you want is a simple way to record and play back memos or job bookings, this is just the job.
I also use the SD card facility to play back radio recordings while we are driving about in the car. (I feed the headphone output into the external input of the car audio system with a simple mono/stereo adapter cable..)
Highly recommended.
