5.0 out of 5 stars Laptop like keyboard experience for your iPad and excellent customer service, December 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great interface and easy to reach keys. The previous one I owned didn't have keys spaced appropriately so every third word would be a typing mistake. I like the fact that when traveling I don't have to carry another charger since it uses standard AAA batteries. Very happy with its quality and value. Customer service is also extremely responsive. I had an issue with one of the keys and Anker was very responsive and replaced the unit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, fun to read, with a dose of reality, March 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While salesforce is a success now, Marc does a good job of the various points of failure they could have hit. I find it fascinating that a company with the disruptive to power to change the industry is also focused on doing good in society. The author spends significant time on how they focused in this area and put their money where there mouth is

4.0 out of 5 stars Arrived earlier than planned and working well to keep my 8 year old Dyson still functional, February 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
No issues. Its keeping my 8 year old Dyson still functional. Its good that somebody is making these batteries for the consumer. Probably not as good for Dysons since I have not bought a new one.

5.0 out of 5 stars An informational read for aviation enthusiast, and a doze of reality: happening today in the F-35, August 9, 2013
Very well written, researched. As an aviation enthusiast, I have known about the aircraft that Lockheed manufactured and there weaknesses. C-5's crash history, failure of L1011, and most importantly the terrible crash record of F-104s across NATO. This book made me realize the political lobbying, self interest, and collusion between the military and Lockheed to protect its interests. And for overseas markets, blatant bribery to promote inferior equipment.

This is happening today in the F-35 program. Over budget, and behind schedule but nobody in congress has the guts to cut it because Lockheed has suppliers in most states/districts.

1.0 out of 5 stars If I wanted a religious text, I would have picked up the holy book, not a fiction, June 14, 2013
Book started well with intensity in a scenario that could very much unfold in reality. But as you get into it, there are disproportionate references to religion, conversions, and how any body that didn't convert was not going to be well served. I am not talking about the classy way that Dan Brown makes references to church in his books with references to Church. I felt I was reading that I had to wonder what it was reading: fiction or a religious publication. I am not an atheist and consider myself moderately religous, but in principle I am against a bait n switch that you pick a fiction but instead you are getting author's projection of religious preferences and continuous quotations from scripture that are not necessary for the plot.

To top it off, this author has no idea how to end a fiction. The whole purpose of a fiction book is to build up a plot but eventually end on a happy note. Rosenberg's ending is tragic and not one of the hundreds of books I have read end this way. I felt I wasted my time reading the whole thing. I won't write him off as an author and will read another book to see if this may be an outlier.

3.0 out of 5 stars there back-up software is hard to de-cypher, May 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Its hard to see progress on how the back-up software is doing when it starts to backup. But I have not been able to see a complete back-up of directories. It may be a user issue on my end but this is supposed to be idiot proof. I have previous NTIShadow also from previous Toshiba hard drive and no issues in using it. They should have bundled this with NTIShadow (like they did the drives two years ago). Its easy, reliable, and you know exactly what its doing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly detailed but knowing how unintelligently management consulting firms now work, I would never hire one, January 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The author has written this with incredible depth and detail. A good perspective on how much work must have gone in to change the culture. To some extent its repetitive and could have been covered in half the content.

As for the actual content, the book gave me insight into a few areas:

1. Management consultants may on paper make a lot of money but divided up by the number of hours worked, time away from family, and interference with personal life on weekdays and weekends, its no better than any other white collar job.

2. It is common sense that the more distractions you have the less productive you are and less focus you have. Same reason you don't have TVs in a cockpit of a plane or inside an operating room. The book gives accurate empirical evidence to support this.

3. Most consulting firms work in the same manner as the one mentioned in the book: if this is how UN-smartly they work, with resulting type of moral problems, distractions, productivity to go with it, I am not sure I would want their perspective if my Fortune 100 company ever needed one.
