5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet well written childrens book about monsters, 20 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Here Be Monsters (Kindle Edition)
Well written kids book that I brought after reading about the film which apparently has some innovative and engaging animation.

I love the world Snow's created and look forward to seeing how the film reinterprets it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mic, acceptable app, 20 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The mic is brilliant, just a a shame the accompanying app wasn't kept up to date when I purchased it.

The apps had two updates now and is working very well, great product.

The app could have better sharing options as it's very tricky to get audio out without plugging it into itunes, especially if you are making longer recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky and informative, 17 Dec. 2012
Excellent well written piece's exploring the more unconventional uses of modern technology with a little bit of whimsy on the side.

The writers reveal how many everyday technologies can be used for good and ill and how you can exploit or protect yourself, while encouraging you to explore beyond what's inside the sealed box.

Quirkily written by self confessed hackers this journal will open your eyes to a side of technology often sidelined, the joy of taking stuff apart and seeing how it works.

Recommended reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware!! Utter rubbish!, 10 Nov. 2009
Barely supported under Leopard and not at all under Snow Leopard I have been trying to make this work with VMWare/Windows but am having patchy results.

Mustek of course have been stoney silent about this budget rubbish product not responding to my, more politely worded, requests to provide support for Snow Leopard. I never had high expectations but this is ridiculous.

The Leopard compatible plugin for Photoshop had the worlds tiniest preview window and extremely limited options but it did work after a fashion, now it just crashes Photoshop. The install under Leopard was painful and difficult, the CD provided doesn't have the right software and Mustek's web site is a maze of misleading dead ends.

Can it really be that hard to update the plugin or write some basic software that works properly on the Mac or even Windows for that matter. The Windows Panel software doesn't allow you to choose the resolution and has no preview window or basic setting accessible in the main selection area.

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE this is truly the WORST A3 SCANNER on the market.
