1.0 out of 5 stars UNSUPPORTED on MAC OS, 23 Feb. 2015

UNSUPPORTED

This trackball is UNSUPPORTED on a mac.

I have spent hours with logitech on this, and they are not fussed.

I can point, I can click, but the two additional buttons which I would have used to scroll are not functional.

DO NOT BUY IF YOU OWN A MAC. Really.

2.0 out of 5 stars Faulty item suspected. Wifi never worked., 29 Dec. 2014
Could not even connect to its own wifi to set it up. Tried from iOS, mac OSX, and windows 8. No luck. Suspecting the one I bought is faulty. Hope they will refund, but do not expect it as was not bought on amazon.


The Art of Thinking Clearly: Better Thinking, Better Decisions
The Art of Thinking Clearly: Better Thinking, Better Decisions

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.08

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing book for anyone curious about how humans work / think., 3 Nov. 2014
It's like taking all of those behavioural economics and psychology books, summarising them, putting them on steroids so they pack more punch, and tidying them all up in a book with cross-links for relevant biases.

I own the ebook, have gifted two hardcover editions (to great acclaim), and also own the iPhone app. I am thinking of buying a hardcover edition for myself to have at work for easy reference and to refresh my memory.

They do not have a string to hold them up, the fabric just folds down, which means they are very comfortable to wear and do floor exercises in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening, comforting, sane, bright, inspirational, motivational, and real. For working women., 3 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're a woman who cares about her full time job and has thought about having a career (the way men have), then you should read this. The anecdotes, the advice, the statistics, everything resonated with me. Building a career when you're a woman is harder than when you are a man, for a multitude of reasons. This book has many stories from real people who accomplished certain things, intentionally or by accident.

Definitely worth a read, especially if you've ever wondered how to make a career and a family happen at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read it if you make things that people use, 3 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have worked in User Experience for 9 years at the time of reading, and I still found value in its stories.

It was an easy read. Broken into three sections, by the time I was done I had forgotten the first one, because the lessons of the last were the most valuable. "Getting people wrong" is easy to forget. "Getting people right" will fuel several conversations you have if you work in a "making things for people to use" industry.

The examples of companies who have used sensemaking, and how they used it were very interesting. Did you know Intel cared about how people use technology? I didn't!

I would not advocate sensemaking as a solution to many problems, but the ones that it can solve, it should solve exceptionally well. It was very good to read that taking more than 6 months to rephrase a problem as an experience, observe the experience, analyse the results, and find groupings, and finally come to a moment of clarity which enables further action, was a) normal and b) a path to success.
