4.0 out of 5 stars The Title Is Misleading, March 24 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The title is misleading. This book would have been better called: Idiot's Guides: A Handbook to Programming in Python. This book, however, is quite extensive and gives the reader a solid grounding in computer programming in Python.

3.0 out of 5 stars Has some metric-inches compatibility problems but otherwise okay, March 24 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have used it in only transmit mode as yet but I'm happy with it. The only stickler thus far is that the mini-jack is metric while many of my devices with which I hoped to use it are decimal inches. It means that the left channel does not always work perfectly. I might be able to remedy the problem by using a different cable other than the one supplied.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nigh impossible to use, Sept. 27 2015
The information contained in this English and German dictionary is excellent and up-to-date. The method of accessing information -- not so great. This rendering smacks of a rush job to have the dictionary available in Kindle format. I have the impression that it was ported directly from the PC version (which I have and had working on my PC perfectly until the advent of Windows 7) to the Kindle without any regard to how a Kindle reader / interpreter functions. The result is that it is difficult in the extreme to access any information from it. Kindle should have had it beta-tested before release.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good idea redered useless, Sept. 27 2015

Save your money. The Kindle reader has the exact same problem as any of the Kobo readers, that is, they are engineered to read only mainstream books and novels in English and a select few modern European languages. In this case, it lacks the requirements to render Gothic characters turning all the Gothic texts into gibberish. It is not only Gothic that the Kindle can not render but also Old English, Middle English, Middle High German, Icelandic and any other languages that do not use the roman alphabet including Greek.. Bottom line: any texts requiring characters outside chrs 32 to 255 in ANSI or ASCII Code Page 437 you can forget about. You will be better off buying the hard copy versions or PDF versions if they are available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed, Jan. 3 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The transmitter worked perfectly for what I needed which were two things: 1) I wanted to listen to music quietly and wirelessly while at work but there are too many machines and suchlike for RF earphones to work efficiently. My work PC does not have Bluetooth built in and the powers that be wouldn't allow me to install the software for a Bluetooth dongle. By having a device such as this that plugs directly into the headset output allowes me to overcome these restrictions. 2) I have an extensive audio cassette collection. By using this device, I was able to plug it into my Sony Walkman and it worked perfectly. The sound is even better now that I can listen with quality Bluetooth headset instead of the cheap pair that came with the Walkman.The only thing I could have asked for is a secondary on-off switch because the device tends to turn itself on at the merest touch of the button. But hay! Four outta five ain't bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Should hav done better, Aug. 28 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had only childhood memories of the show so this was almost a new experience for me. It had the potential for becoming a multi seasonal show acording to my father had there not been so many time shifts or cancellations for other special events and sports. It was great fun.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save Your Money -- It's A Rip-Off, Jan. 2 2014
This review is from: Winx Club: Magical Adventure (DVD)
If you love the Winx Club then don't waste your money on this version of Winx Club the Magical Adventure released by Nickelodeon. The original Italian release is about 90 minutes long. Nickelodeon did some heavy-handed editing to fit it into a 60 minute time slot and didn't even remove the grey areas for commercial breaks. An Italian unedited release is available that includes an English sound track. It is expensive but worth it in the long run.
