When buying a book like this, you expect to read heartwarming stories of love, sacrifice and devotion. That is what is implied by the subtitle, isn't it? We got too excited by this and forgot to read the back cover. Its not that a little scripture would bother me, but the stories are short, weak and followed by a much longer bunch of cookie cutter advice set to the tune of a biblical metaphor.
Two stars for tricking me. One for content.
We have a sweet little setup in our office where we have this bluetooth receiver output to a cheap T-amp and then to 2 bookshelf speakers hung up on the wall. Total cost was $90 and now anyone in the office can connect and stream music to it. Range is good for 20-30 feet depending on what is broadcasting....Read more
I'm a 6-game and multiple app veteran of Android development. I completely agree with the approach this book takes to Android game development. Mario takes the developer through a step-by-step process in assembling a light but high quality game that isn't just the "Android" way but is the way many portable titles are built out. I also like the fact that multiple examples are given and fully functional source code to the projects.
Very good job, Mr Zechner! If you're new to Android game development, this is a great way to start.
I was itching for a little nostalgia when I decided to go back to the desktop case land. There aren't many choices if you don't want a tower but luckily Silverstone makes this little beauty.
Into this case I packed:
650 Watt Corsair PSU
Asus Rampage III Formula Motherboard
EVGA Geforce GTX 470 Full Size Video Card
12GB G.Skill Ripjaws RAM
1TB Western Digital Black HD
Intel Core i7-950 CPU with stock cooler
Let's not kid around about space here.. This is a high quality case but space is tight inside when you've got a full ATX board and a full length GPU. I had to do some careful wire routing and tying to make everything accessible. I also wasn't able to put my hard drive where I wanted. I had to put it behind the PSU or had I had an adapter - in a 5.25" drive bay. The 3.5" internal bays for me are all obstructed by either the motherboard or video card. Keep that in mind - you can really only fit 2 3.5" hard drives in here comfortably when its loaded. A 2.5" one is probably fine anywhere, though.
Despite that, I'm glad it's not any bigger because it works perfectly on my desk with an Asus monitor on it. I play games all the time and airflow is good and heat hasn't been an issue at all. The GTX470 screams when being pushed hard but that's par for the course. CPU has always been in good range. The 2 fans on back move a lot of air.
I love the quality of the case exterior. It makes me happy to see in front of me.
Highly recommended case for anyone wishing to relive a higher quality 90s computing experience :)
