MiFID II - A Survival Guide. Would thoroughly recommend this book by Seb Malik - it is a tough job to write something in the middle ground between the hundreds of pages of text and the higher level summaries out there. Well positioned for project teams progressing the challenges...

5 Steps from Corporate Hell to Freedom & Fun: Using Your Current Expertise as a Stepping Stone to a Purposeful Working Life

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful on many levels, 25 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's not so often you find a short read that covers lifestyle,
Coaching and Business Approach all the way telling a story through illustrative examples. I partially liked the revisiting of examples in a different context as the text progressed how the example became relevant at different stages. I liked the steps aspect to the change journey and found this worked as a straight read and also as a focus on specific chapters. Good mix of best approach and practicality all the while maintaining an outcomes based stance. Useful book some early tips to put into immediate use - see you at 5am tomorrow ..

Puts the well known Dummies format to good use. Logically laid out sections and a good build on themes throughout the text. It does have a very North American flavour which may not appeal to all European tastes specifically in some examples/suggestions muted. Overall it helped very well and does what it says on the tin.. would recommend.

Really great idea and overall good product but does not just turn on and work. The instructions provided are brief and you have to guess a bit which app to download for iOS (don’t have Android, so cannot comment there). There are two called “Sandisk Connect Drive” and its the one that has a picture of this unit. I spent 30 mins playing with it to get everything working. Best option once you have downloaded the app is to go into settings and hook it to a known WiFi network. This saves continually switching WiFi connections. The main issue I had was the URL provided sandisk.com/myconnect does not detect the drive when on a known network and when directly connected to the drive the web page cannot be found? The workaround is to connect to the devices web page via its IP address. This can be found via the iOS app in settings (e.g http://192.168.1.18/myconnect/). Also need to go into settings to set a pass word to the drive, I think this should be alerted as critically important and surprised it was not. Despite the rough edges on the set-up a good, well made product that does offer portable flexibility. Works well with a ChomeBook as well as Windows. As an aside, could not get it to mount with Linux (MINT 17) either WiFi or physically but the product does not mention Linux support. I was surprised it would not recognise it as a simple drive however.

Very hard to calibrate and not robust, broken after a few weeks following minor knocks and bumps - which anyone new to drones will have. Two stars to reflect a lot of functionality for the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars A positive to highlight is excellent battery life, 8 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is slower and more basic than my three year old entry level Nokia it replaces. Cheaper to replace the phone than get a new battery! Its a backward step under Microsoft ownership and product development, from a real Nokia. Shame, that 15 year old basic mobile OS had been honed to perfection.. No issues with the dual SIM, works well with Vodafone and Tesco carriers using a standard SIM. A positive to highlight is excellent battery life. Its good value for the money, but my rating reflects the general product backward step from excellent to good.

Quality cable that looks to stand the test of time, appears not to have the tearing cable issue. The apple product colour match is a nice touch too and it still undercuts a standard lead from apple by some margin.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Installed a very basic desktop on a AMD 64 bit machine (Dell Vostro) with windows with no menu's and thus a really unusable workflow. This was very different to the run directly off the memory stick (which is of course standalone) which worked well. After some investigation gave up and installed MINT (free download) on the machine with no issues. This is a huge disappointment as a paid for packed distro (the OS is of course free) should work on the most common of machines/configs, suggests very little testing here...
