Asus USB 3.0 HZ-1 Universal Docking Station by ASUS
2 of 4 people found the following review helpful
Overall the docking station is quite good. For some reason I had it in my head that this would be able to power my laptop, which it clearly can't. This is a pretty frustrating functionality omission and I wouldn't have bought it if I'd realised. Most of the clients I work for have limited power points available, so I could do without having to take two power supplies with me everywhere. Without this, it doesn't really give me any better functionality than I could have got from a couple of usb splitter cables at far less cost. It'll now form an expensive desktop addition to my home set-up instead. Good quality product though as always from Asus.
When A Crocodile Eats the Sun by Peter Godwin
5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it!, 11 Sep 2007
That's an order! Tremendous piece of work by Peter Godwin. Whilst being very personal (being a story about his own family), Godwin unveils a waterfall of information about a torn country suffering from the dictatorship of the infamous Mugabe.

I have read many books on the plight of countries, including China (Mao: The Unkown Story), Nicaragua (Jaguar Smile) etc, but on finishing When a Crocodile Eats the Sun I feel completely useless, and hopeless, to a cause far beyond my help. Brilliant.
