So, you applied to an Internet dating service and found your ideal partner. How did you cope when you discovered your dream partner is an android? This story shows how the aspects of consideration, sensitivity, gentleness, good manners and some old fashioned customs will all, someday, be emulated by advanced humanization. And then some ....

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of “Story Engineering” by Larry Brooks, 22 Jun. 2016

Rating: Five Star
This is essential reading for all new or aspiring authors. The components of storytelling, the “Six Core Competencies” are presented in short chapters, as study chunks, and avoids technical terms and jargon. I found it very easy to read and absorb. The use of examples was just enough to prove each point.
The book provides valuable check-lists so that an author may look at their work from a fresh point of view. If you are thinking “what’s next?” or “why is this failing?” you will find many reasoned arguments as to the best approach to resolve the issue.

1.0 out of 5 stars Falling short of expectations, 26 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The laptop came with the wrong power adaptor, so I never powered it up. The cover picked up finger prints far too easily which will be a major annoyance to many. The laptop supplied was from China and was stamped as model P57F; basically a clone. Checking on Dell website did show this as the appropriate computer 'as ordered', but I found this only inspired lack of confidence in the product supplied. My last 3 laptops have all come with stickers proudly displaying the internal products and the supplied laptop had no such stickers. Dell has a good reputation and this attitude to shifting boxes and not checking power supplies will not meet their normal high standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars FAST and future proofed, 26 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ideal laptop. The C-drive is a SSD (Solid State Drive). Its effectively the same as using main memory. This means the laptop is extremely FAST. Most will buy it as advertised - as a games machine. I was only interested in a quality display with good graphics as I use DAZ 3D to produce book covers. The rendering speed is impressive. This laptop has all the new features I was looking for: USB-3 ports and DD4 memory. The laptop comes with an American keyboard which may be an annoyance to some users. The laptop comes with Windows 10 preloaded which defaults the keyboard layout to English(UK). This default needs to be changed to match the keyboard hardware - English(USA). The keyboard has a red backlight which I have come to like. This laptop specification will easily meet my next 3 years expectations.
Overall - the hardware is very good. - hence 5 stars.


Kindle Fire HDX For Dummies (For Dummies (Computers))
Kindle Fire HDX For Dummies (For Dummies (Computers))
by Nancy C. Muir
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.18

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for Dummies, 11 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not written for dummies. The word 'dummy' is demeaning enough but has been accepted by most to mean 'not computer literate'. This book needs an introduction to present the Kindle to the older generation, i.e. technophobics.
This book has presented the required information; it's all there, but there are several instances where pictures are not on the same page as the descriptions. This is very confusing.

We have only just discovered 'the Librarians' and so these films were a great filler for the Christmas period. They are all very like Indiana Jones movies and just as much fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story of misdirection., 24 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read the free copy of 'Social Engineer' I bought the book 'Invasion of Privacy'. This book is a great read and I dropped everything to finish it. The story is heavy with computer terminology which is explained in 'every day speak' from geek to outsider. This novel is a must read for everyone including those who think they have done everything to protect themselves from hackers. I guess I enjoyed this so much because of my own experience of 40+ years in IT, mostly in communications. I can vouch for the accuracy of most of the methods covered. Buyer beware! You will be distinctly worried about your own security after reading this novel.

A typical example of 'you get what you pay for'. This duvet is worth every penny of its high price. It's light and very comfortable.
