Stunning CSS3: A Project-Based Guide to the Latest&hellip by Zoe Gillenwater

It's not often I read a book and feel like I've learnt something new after every page; however this was exactly what I felt after reading Stunning CSS3.

Previously I'd known some of what CSS3 was capable of - rounded borders, box shadows, semi-transparency with RGBA - but I'd not seen such a complete overview of what's new in CSS3, or as many real-world examples of how its features could be used in combination, as offered by this book.

What I liked about this book was the emphasis on progressive enhancement; that we should be striving to give visitors with the latest browsers the best possible experience, while still presenting a perfectly acceptable experience to… Read more
Microsoft Office 2007 Home and Student Edition (3 &hellip by Microsoft Software

This is fantastic value for the Home and Student edition of Office that, unlike the Student and Teacher version it replaces, can be used be *all* home users. I would've jumped at the chance of buying Office 2007 for less than 100... if only it contained Outlook.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 11 Sep 2004
The one word that sums up what I thought about this album - disappointed.
You aren't taken to "a higher place" like with the other Euphoria CDs, and many tracks seem to be over before they get going (e.g. The Prodigy). Also some of the music seems to be so out of place, such as track 13 on CD2 (System F - Cry), which is very slow and has slow, loud vocals. The Euphoria series of CDs have recently been taken over by MoS, so maybe that has something to do with this drop in standards?
Maybe I was just expecting something different from this CD, or trance has dramatically changed in the last 12 months. Personally my only highlight on the entire album is Motorcycle - As The Rush Comes,… Read more
