The smallest Black HDMI TO VGA with Audio Adapter for PC Laptop to VGA Monitor, Power-Free Support Raspberry Pi
Offered by CAMAC ™ (Ceed Cable)
Price: £6.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Much neater than the dangly cable Mac users have, 6 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Laptops these days have eliminated the VGA socket, but projectors haven't. This makes it easy to connect the two.
Only criticism is that it is a shade loose in the HDMI socket and sticks out a bit so presenters or attendees can knock it out. I stuck a felt pad on the bottom of mine so it rests on the table, making it more secure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Art is a window into our history. This opens it wide., 3 July 2014

K Clark gives us an excellent grounding in art and its place in history. We may have moved on in some of our thinking but this is still an excellent primer to help anyone understand art and its relationship to who we are.


The Future of Work: How the New Order of Business Will Shape Your Organization, Your Management Style, and Your Life
The Future of Work: How the New Order of Business Will Shape Your Organization, Your Management Style, and Your Life
by Thomas Malone
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for anyone changing their organisation - or feeling the need to, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Malone starts with a simple premise - that autocratic organisations and markets are at opposite ends of a decision speed continuum. He then exposes why most businesses are being disrupted and how it is organisation, not product, which is at the core of the problem.

Very powerful in exposing the problem, and it shows why many of the latest ideas have emerged.

McGregor was one of the first to consider the human side and many of his conclusions underpin the latest thinking. This takes you back to the source.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very important subject, well covered, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a new and immature field. Danny is opinionated, with strong views on the various errors which traditional marketers get wrong. He explores it well, showing us why it is valuable and how it works.
