Tech World (Undying Mercenaries Series Book 3)
Tech World (Undying Mercenaries Series Book 3)
Price: $4.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Darned good military science fiction yarn and series, September 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like the "Undying Mercenaries" series a lot, and this is the third novel in the series. I gave it four stars only because I liked the first novel quite a bit better, but this one is quite good and well worth a read. This novel and series do an excellent job of extrapolating what it might be like if a Galactic Empire far, far advanced over Earth were to suddenly make contact with our planet. The Empire's technology is so far ahead of Earth technology that, as the great Arthur Clarke once said, it is almost indistinguishable from magic. The Empire is ruthless and pitiless, but also old and perhaps corrupt, allowing the wily Earthmen to create a niche within it, albeit not without a great deal of pain and dislocation.

This story is quite interesting and fun, but at times seems to go off track and a few times I had trouble following the storyline. By and large though, this is a fun and interesting story that moves fast and holds the reader's interest. Recommended, and I am waiting for the fourth installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seem fine to me., September 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I use USB 3.0 devices and for those that use this type of connector, e.g. USB 3.0 hubs these cables are fine, and work just fine. You want to check to make sure what kind of connector your USB 3.0 device needs, as there is more than one configuration. As best I can tell the quality of construction of this cable is quite good. Recommended. RJB.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly with my HP ZBook 17 and Elitebook, September 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a hefty 200 watt power supply that works perfectly with the Elitebook 8770W or ZBook 17 computer. Both of these Notebook computers require a hefty power supply and this one does the job. It works great; not much more to say. Recommended. RJB.

5.0 out of 5 stars A powerful film and bravo performance by Richard Widmark, September 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Time Limit (Amazon Instant Video)
Richard Widmark has always been one of my favorites. In this powerful film, Richard Widmark is a senior JAG officer tasked to investigate apparent acts of treason by an American officer POW in Korea. The Korean War is over now, and one officer committed acts in collaboration with the enemy such as signing leaflets affirming germ warfare by America, and the like.

At first the whole matter seems clear-cut, but Widmark soon discovers that all of the involved POWs at the camp are hiding a terrible secret. Army politics intrude into the investigation, and only the integrity of the JAG officer prevents possible injustice. More would be telling, but this is a fine film that shows that many acts of wrongdoing involve shades of grey and extenuation. I had seen this film as a teenager, and it made quite an impression on me. It is terrific that this excellent film is now available on Amazon Instant Video. Don't miss it. RJB.

5.0 out of 5 stars The series continues into the third generation, September 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
"Marching with Caesar--Rebellion" follows the third generation of the family of Titus Pullus into the Roman Army in the times of Augustus Caesar. Like the entire series, this novel features extreme attention to detail and realism, together with a linear plot and characters that keep the reader's interest throughout. I have been reading this entire series and it does not disappoint. This novel and series really do give the reader some idea what life might have been like for Legionaries in the Roman Army. I will naturally be avidly waiting for the next installment in the series. RJB.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great monitor, September 13, 2014
I needed an excellent second monitor for my HP ZBook computer and I selected this HP Envy 24 inch Monitor. I have been uniformly satisfied with the monitor. Firstly the construction of this monitor is first-rate. It is thin, light, and elegant. I love it that this monitor has HDMI and other interfaces including VGA (it does not have PCMI). And, of course, this monitor contains Beats speakers. I was delighted to find that the sound automatically plays though the HDMI-to-DisplayPort cable, eliminating the need to connect through the available stereo jack.

The picture on this monitor is outstanding. For text it is bright, crisp, and pleasant to work with. For video the picture is excellent. This monitor is viewable from extreme angles, making it great for presentations in the office and whatnot. Users will want to select among the various HP color adjustment options for various types of viewing, as they really do make a big difference. "Movie" for videos, for example.

The controls are touch items on the lower left of the monitor. I spent a few minutes trying to figure out where they were because there is only a tiny menu icon there until you touch it, at which time other icons appear. This is neat and elegant, but confusing until you know that they are there. Once I found them they were very easy to manipulate. Refer to the manual (I did not).

Overall this is a sharp, delightful monitor. I do not know why HP puts DisplayPort connectors on its computers, but HDMI connectors on its PCs. I guess these two divisions do not talk to each other. Paging Meg Whitman.

I can recommend this monitor without reservations. RJB.
