4.0 out of 5 stars All as described - and works as described., 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All as described - and works as described.

Apple TV is a pain which stops auto-changing the channel (not related to the produce) and the Chromecast doesn't have a power off remote so I have to change channels using the remote.

The only thing which I wish I could change is the brightness of the lights on the front panel - VERY bright blue (and lots of them) which I may need to cover over with some tape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes the grind out of long reports, 14 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I tend to have to transcribe 4 long meetings each week and it was driving me nuts spending all that time listening to the recording of the meeting and typing it up. It won't recognise the voices in the meeting (other than mine) but it does recognise me summarising in the meeting. I then tend to do a 'voice over' from the meeting. Saves me hours each week.

Should have bought it years ago.

You could never pretend that this is an easy read manual but that's not what it's supposed to be. It is THE definitve manual on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - the hit of Christmas, 9 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dinosaur Snap (Toy)
Of all the toys and games the boys got for Christmas this was the one which entertained them most. Though to be fair - their dad and granddad were also enthralled which led to a bit of a gender split in the household with mum and gran being left in peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas, 12 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been working with a very angry 8 yo boy and this book was brilliant in forming the work. The volcano theme worked well for him and the fact that it stresses that its ok to be angry was hugely realistic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dense Dense Dense, 18 Jun. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok - anyone who buys this is going to be on the geek scale somewhere and I freely admit that I am but this is a heavy book (both in weight and content) and although I am sure it is expertly researched I had to add it to the pile of unfinished books. Maybe I needed more stories and less fact but....

1.0 out of 5 stars Just Give up !, 29 Jun. 2004
This review is from: My Life (Hardcover)
I'm at page 186 and I've just had enough. Way too much hick nostalgia for me - Arkansas IS nowhere and Little Rock is just that. Even though he was the best President since JFK I've got to the point where staring out of the tube window (whilst underground) is more interesting than the book. Sorry Bill.


Fast Track to MDX
Fast Track to MDX

1.0 out of 5 stars There are better books about on MDX, 3 Sept. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fast Track to MDX (Paperback)
Bought this book thinking that it was going to supplement the information in 'MDX Solutions' by George Spofford and I was seriously disappointed.
I was expecting the definitive book given who the authors are and this is not the case.
It has some significant gaps such as how you would use MDX to define calculations within a cube, how the calculations interact and there is no function reference section.
Connection parameters which can govern a lot of what you see from the front end are not covered. Infact, this is not really a reference book and I could not imagine picking it up having read it once (if I ever got to the end of it).
This is the 'ladybird book of MDX' and is not something which will assist a Developer / DBA as it says in the blurb.
If you really want it buy a used copy - It may be mine !
