5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased so far - the concerns I had pre-purchase proved to be unfounded, 15 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased one of these for running, after initially starting out looking for a blue tooth solution. My main reason being that I was fed up with fiddling about with wired ear-phones.

An earphone only device seemed like a perfect solution although I was a bit concerned about; a) how well it would stay in place, and b) whether the controls may be a bit fiddly with buttons only as I'm used to having a small display.

I've been out for 3 runs with it now and there has been no problem with it staying on my head and selecting the required mode is very easy with the recorded voice feedback. The only snag was that it took me a few attempts to download a playlist but nothing major.

2.0 out of 5 stars ... would be enough for my needs but have been disappointed with the accuracy, 24 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a beginner I thought that basic functionality would be enough for my needs but have been disappointed with the accuracy. Over 5K it underestimates the distance covered by up to 170M (although not by a consistent amount). After adjusting for the errors it has provided some useful data. If you are happy with that kind of accuracy it's OK but consider going for a more expensive model as I wish I had.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, good size, 25 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just what I needed to replace the 2 slightly different sized monitors I was using previously.

Good quality for everything I generally use the PC for, everything as advertised when I made the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Foo Fighters, 28 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Foo Fighters (Audio CD)
Being a fan of Foo Fighters recent work, I thought I'd check out their earlier recordings.

I was not disappointed.


Agile Game Development with Scrum (Addison-Wesley Signature)
Agile Game Development with Scrum (Addison-Wesley Signature)
by Clinton Keith
Edition: Paperback
Price: £41.99

4.0 out of 5 stars I recommend it to Game PMs / Producers, 7 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having spent 15 years managing game development projects, it was interesting to read how someone else applied Scrum to the game development process.

The interesting thing was the similarity between his approach (based on Scrum) and my approach (based on common sense and experience).

3.0 out of 5 stars Print quality is not great, 7 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for reference purposes after reading the on-line version.

The on-line version included some nice color illustrations, but the book is black and white so these were not so clear which was disappointing.


The DSDM Atern Student Workbook
The DSDM Atern Student Workbook
by D.J. & I.J. Tudor
Edition: Paperback
Price: £24.95

4.0 out of 5 stars This book provided what I needed., 7 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a way to familiarize myself with Atern with a view to possibly taking the APM AgilePM exams. The book got me at least to the Foundation level by reading through it once (based on the practice questions in the book and a practice paper on the APM website).

My only criticisms were that the Life cycle and products chapter seemed to skip the products part (I had to refer to the official DSDM Atern Manual on the DSDM Consortium web site for this information, the book also refers to a "scenario" which didn't seem to be included in the book.
