5.0 out of 5 stars Good looking in itself and, 1 Jun. 2017
I've had one of these for around 3 years now. First used it with a Nexus 4 and kept it when I upgraded to an Xperia Z5C. A quality product and, being real leather, darkens and develops real character over time. Good looking in itself and, when you take the phone out, allows the design of your phone to be admired as well.

Well packaged, good instructions (although I could not find the relevant YouTube video). Tools reasonable quality. Only downside (apart from not being able to link to the video) was the double sided tape to hold the battery in which was not easy to use

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant light, shame about the bracket, 14 Feb. 2015
This is a review in two parts:
First, the light itself is extremely bright and very effective at being seen by cars approaching from behind. I am sure that cars now pass me wider than they used to.
Secondly, the bracket! This is a fixed bracket i.e. no adjustment, and is designed to work on a seat post of a particular angle, however, mine was a different angle, so I was doing a very effective job of lighting the tarmac immediately behind my bike. When I deliberately misplaced the portion of the rubber strap on the seat stem this now means the light points directly backwards. The light snaps into the bracket and seems quite firm once secured, however, removing and reattaching is a bit of a pain, so if you leave your bike locked up for most of the day and want to remove your lights during the day, this is a bit of a down side.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the original, 14 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect replacement for my original 12 cutter head, but has the added advantage that in future you only need to replace the cutter and foils and not the complete cutter head. Shaves as close as previous one. Cleaning is slightly different in that you clean all heads at once, but this does not seem to be a problem.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK book let down by poor Kindle implementation, 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have reduced the rating I have given the book independently by 1 star due to the poor implementation in Kindle - many sections of the book contain no quotation marks or apostrophes, which makes reading some sections quoting different people quite difficult - you have to use the dialect to work out if this is still a quotation or further descriptive text. Additionally, there are many other errors in copying to Kindle. Probably the worst converted book I have come across.

Having grown up in West Yorkshire at the time that the Yorkshire Ripper was committing these crimes lead to a curiosity to find out more about what happened and why. This book provided a reasonable view about the life story of Peter Sutcliffe, his development and subsequent crimes.

However, for me it left many questions unanswered. The narrative calmly switches from mundane events to his first attacks almost as if describing another trip to the pub. Even the later section on the trial, where the diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia was mentioned provided little more detail around why...

5.0 out of 5 stars At last, a viable LED alternative to halogen, 6 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having tried out a range of LED GU10 bulbs over the last few years where it was very clear that the technology had not yet become suitably mature to produce a comparable level of light and to keep working reliably, it is good that at long last there is something suitable on the market.
The bulb lights immediately and produces a similar level and spread of light as a halogen GU10. The bulb is heavier and longer than a normal bulb, so may restrict its use in some fittings, but looks attractive all the same. Can't yet report on the longevity of the bulb, but it does look well made and comes with a 5 year warranty, so should not be a problem

5.0 out of 5 stars A valuable reference source for MDM projects, 8 Mar. 2011
As part of a recent data quality assignment, I had cause to use the recently released 2nd edition of "Master Data Management and Data Governance" by Alex Berson and Larry Dubov.

Although I did not acquire the book specifically for this assignment, it ended up providing much valuable theory and background information. The book is very comprehensive (clocking in at just over 500 pages) but is written in an engaging and informative style by Alex and Larry, both well recognised authors and thinkers in this field.

The structure of the book is rational and logical, starting with an overview of Master Data Management, architectural considerations for MDM solutions, security/privacy/compliance and then moves on sections on implementing and governing Master Data Management. The final section reviews current MDM markets and trends. This edition has been updated to reflect the changes in both the techniques used and the technologies that are available.

The general approach to the subject is expansive, but very readable and contains many references to other publications, authors and web resources with clear analysis of these different views.

Where methodologies are stated, the authors in many cases provide alternative approaches and do not present a `one size fits all' solution. This means that you will have to spend a little time deciding on the most appropriate approach for your particular situation - but that is probably time well spent and does not make you feel that you have to follow a single prescriptive approach.

Throughout the book space is devoted to providing explanations of the different techniques and technologies, for example, the information security chapter takes time to explain the range of different security techniques and technologies and how they can be applied.

I only one minor criticism of the book, that more space could have been devoted to Data Governance and data quality management approaches.

Overall, this is a valuable and informative book that should be a key reference source for anyone starting or following an MDM path. In terms of the client I mentioned earlier, I recommended that they buy a copy of this book to ensure that they fully understood how MDM can support them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best from an artist mostly unknown in the UK, 30 Dec. 2003
Zucchero is well known and popular in most of Europe, especially his native Italy.
His music is very accessible and follows a lot of styles and themes. This version is in English, but as has been pointed out the version with most songs in their native Italian is better.
