5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Service, 31. Oktober 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Nach kurzer Zeit ging der Girosensor in meinem neuen Galaxy S4 kaputt (Bilder drehten sich nicht mehr von Portrait zu Landscape wenn das Gerät um 90 Grad gedreht wurde). Also musste ich mich mit der Reparaturdienst von Amazon in Verbindung setzen. Ich befürchtete das Schlimmste, wurde aber angenehm überrascht! Beispielhaft ist, dass im Falle eines Defekts keine typische Call-Center-Warteschlange-Tortur erduldet werden muss. Man meldet ein Problem und wird dann von Amazon angerufen.
Das Gerät wurde tatsächlich "repariert" und innerhalb 7 Tage zurückgeschickt. Leider hielt die Reparatur nur wenige Stunden bis die Symptome eines kaputten Girosensors wieder da waren.
Nach einem freundlichen Gespräch mit Amazon wurde sofort ein neues Ersatzgerät versandt. Mit dem Gerät bin ich sehr zufrieden und ich habe gerade eine 64 GB Mikro SD Karte bestellt.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Foscam FI8910W with Buggy Software, 4. Juli 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This camera works some of the time but has many bugs. For example, it regularly forgets the OSD date setting it to some time in 1970. The most annoying thing is a tendency to automatically reset when some unannounced thing happens. The camera then starts scanning horizontally and vertically and ends up pointing in the wrong direction, sometimes with no picture. Here's what I discovered concerning this behavoir today:

Hypothesis: Seems to happen when camera is looking at a bright scene.
Test: Put red Plexiglas filter over lens and point into garden (bright sunny day)
Result: reset after about 1 min.
2nd attempt - OK for 3 min, then auto-reset action started.
Test: Remove filter
Result: Picture brighter (overloaded); camera stopped delivering picture. Auto-reset action started.
Test: After reset action finished, replace red filter.
Result: Stable picture for >2 minutes, then reset action started
Test: After reset action finished, remove red filter and point to scene in room
Result: Stable picture for >60 minutes, then reset action started
Conclusion: This thing auto-resets if the scene is too bright! It is only suitable for indoor light levels or outdoor scenes at night with the IR LEDs.

If you buy this camera make sure you have enough time to play with the problems. By the way, I couldn't get it to work properly with Chrome - it took me a day playing around with that! Use Internet Explorer with Active X instead.

Foscam really should fix their firmware bugs!

Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs
von Walter Isaacson
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 16,95

4.0 von 5 Sternen I thought I knew the story anyway, 7. Februar 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Steve Jobs (Gebundene Ausgabe)
As we all know, Steve Jobs was a fascinating personality. This book has been piling up in book shops since Steve died and I was reluctant to buy it because, since I've worked with computers since pre Jobs/Gates times, I thought I knew the story anyway. But one day, while waiting for my wife in the library, I picked up a German translation of the book and browsed through it randomly. I liked the way it was written and decided to buy the original version.
Walter Isaacson does an excellent job of describing the personal, business and technical aspects of Steve's life, and shows how his difficult and intense personality lead to the creation of successful products and companies.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Crashes my Win7 64 bit PC, 7. Februar 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Reception of DVB-T signals is very good. Used it with DVBviewer - an excellent way of watching TV on your PC. Unfortunately it crashes my PC when attempting to start DVBviewer a second time. After rebooting it works perfectly again but only once! Tried to find a BDA driver that worked properly but without success. Have now replaced the AirStar 2 TV with a KNC-1 TV-Station DVB-T card which works perfectly and doesn't crash the PC.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Questions a lot of conventional wisdom, 7. Februar 2013

A good book. Questions a lot of conventional wisdom about the current flavour of global capitalism. Ha-Joon Chang is well worth reading.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Book received in poor condition, 11. Oktober 2010
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
The book is good, but unfortunately I have had to return it to "Best Bargain Books" since it is in very poor condition. When the book arrived (after about 4 weeks!) it was accompanied by a printed email apologising for the poor condition and giving me the option of cancelling the order, but the email was not forwarded to me in time to act.

A new edition of this book is being offered by Amazon at about the same price that I paid for this secondhand one. I will order that instead. I suppose that will be the last secondhand book I buy via Amazon.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Read this book before campaigning against global warming, 23. Januar 2010
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Anybody who voices opinions about humans causing global warming should read this book first. It provides a wealth of information about the mechanisms that really affect our climate and exposes the superficial and false picture presented by the IPCC that has resulted in the expensive, irrational measures instigated by politicians.
You should also read "Unstoppable Global Warming" by Singer and Avery.
