5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Smartphone, 1 Feb. 2013
Have been using the N7100 now for roughly a month and all I can say is wow!

I have some experience with Smartphone's having owned over the past 3 years multiple devices such as: HTC Hero, Legend, Desire, Desire HD & Samsung Galaxy S, S2 and S3, plus brief periods of using an iPhone 4S (though I'm not a fan of IOS) and an LG Optimus 2X (the less said about that the better)

I change my handset quite often much to my wife's dismay as I like to stay on the cutting edge. However with the Note 2 I have a Smartphone that I do not feel the need to upgrade anytime soon, and here are the main reasons why:

1. Though initially large and somewhat unwieldy to hold it's amazing how quickly you adapt to this device, much the same way we adapted to previous `large' screen sizes i.e. anything between 3.5 - 4.7 inch which were all once considered the upper limit. When you get used to the 5.5 inch screen you won't want to go back.

2. This truly is a Smartphone without compromise, it has it all: large screen, powerful processor, plenty of RAM, changeable battery, expandable storage, and all the latest connectivity options. With all other competing Smartphone's you will find one or more of the above items missing, but not here.

3. The S Pen, it's not just a gimmick, Samsung has really managed to incorporate it into the Note 2 package and create some very interesting and useful features.

4. When it comes to day to day use, again this phone ticks all the necessary boxes, battery life is great, call quality loud and clear, Screen is bright and sharp and the UI is (thanks to the powerful hardware) completely fluid.

The functionality and diversity of the Note 2 is immense, you want a phone, media player, portable games machine, camera, E-reader, pda, gps device etc then this does it, and again thanks to that large HD screen it does it superbly.

Overall this phone deserves everyone of the 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait, 1 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having literary just finished reading this book, I thought I'd give my perspective as someone who has read his fair share of material relating to the space race of the 1960's-1970's.

To say I was exited upon hearing this book was soon to be published is something of an understatement. John W. Young's experience in manned space exploration is second to none, and it's all captured here in detail.

Is it a little heavy on the technical side of thing's...perhaps, but this was also the case with Mike Collin's `Carrying the fire' in this case mind I was expecting it as anyone who's ever heard of John Young's infamous `Youngrams' will know he is regarded as something of a stickler for details.

Does it contain mistakes...yes, but again anyone with enough knowledge on this subject should be able to spot them quite easily, and for me personally (even though their presence is indeed perplexing) they do not detract from the overall experience of the book.

What I like in reading such books (besides the historical reference) is to get a sense of the subject's personality and in this `Forever Young' does deliver. It is John Young's tenacity and determination that really shines through in the pages of this book.

Overall I really enjoyed this book, though the comparatively high level of technical detail means it's not as easily accessible as the likes of say Gene Cernan's `Last Man on the Moon' or Deke Slaytons `Deke' it still however manages to be an enjoyable and informative read and the epilogue is both inspiring and sobering in it's parting message.

12 delivered in the pack and not one of them was useful, there seemed to be a slight crease in the upper right corner which could not be smoothed once applied to the screen. complete rubbish.
