Node.js Web Development: Create real-time server-side applications with this practical, step-by-step guide, 3rd Edition
Node.js Web Development: Create real-time server-side applications with this practical, step-by-step guide, 3rd Edition
This book is a great step by step guide to get started with NodeJS in no time. It uses a lot of detailed examples to make you understand how NodeJS works and how it can be used to implement modern requirements like using third party authentication (e. g. login with Twitter), NoSQL databases (MongoDB is used here), responsive web design, or deploying with Docker.

I found it very useful that it provides detailed information on how to install NodeJS on Windows, OS X, Linux, etc. and that it contains facts about performance (regarding usability and scalability), which are useful when thinking about picking NodeJS for the next project. Also, the book presents an interesting link between NodeJS and green technology.

The book focuses on presenting NodeJS by building an actual application to which new features are added in every chapter. This application passes through many stages, starting from a simple basic web application which displays notes in the browser and ending up having a structure similar to a social networking application (a very simple one, but conclusive for its purpose).

The content is very up to date. Apart from presenting integration with Docker and MongoDB, and how to make your web application mobile friendly, it also uses in the examples the latest changes in JavaScript (ES-2015, ES-2016) which are now available in NodeJS.

Furthermore, the language used in this book makes it pleasant to read. The more complicated parts are often rephrased to emphasize the main idea and to make it as clear as possible before passing on to the next step. Humorous comments used occasionally make this book even more fun to read.

To sum up, I think this book is a good choice and I would recommend it to all new NodeJS developers as well as to those interested in implementing more modern requirements (having responsive web design, using Docker or logging in with third party authentication). Overall, it is a great book for every developer interested in staying up to date with technology.
Failing to Succeed: The Story of India’s First E-Commerce Company
Failing to Succeed: The Story of India’s First E-Commerce Company
Failing to Succeed (Book Review) by Vaitheeswaran
TLDR : Sad but insightful look into the mind of a pioneering startup. 3.5/5
Review
This book was an overnight quick read because as the author says : If you have a story, the book writes itself. The author details the struggle and philosophy/ideology and the strategy behind his cofounder/CEO/COO role at IndiaPlaza/Fabmall/Fabmart.
The story is deeply personal and there are numerous scandalous tidbits of personal conversations among those who are more into startups for their personal wealth rather than any passion. The author establishes himself as a genuine individual with a passion to establish Indias first ecommerce startup. Notably, he started in 1999 when e-commerce in India did not exist. It was the same time I got my job in Wipro (he is an ex-wiproite too) and I was introduced to Bangalore and my first Citibank Suvidha card. The author did spend a lot of time establishing the viability and attractiveness of e-commerce in those early days when today no one things twice of ordering even Fridge and AC from an e-commerce provider.
Notably, the author thinks more of his enterprise like a retailer than a technologist (he is on the Microsoft Stack, and thats all we come to know). So he spends a lot of effort on the innovative strategies they followed to educate the customer or to compete with other offline (and in the future online retailers). He also details a lot of funny incidents that happened during early days and how they pioneered things like omnichannel, digital payments or hyperlocal before these buzzwords even existed.
One of the recurring themes which the author comes back to is to value profitability , margins, retention, conversion rates and customer experience over Gross Merchandise Value (or customer base). He derides GMV as a measure of growth which Flipkart and Snapdeal until recently used to value themselves in eyes of the investor. One key point he keeps coming to is how the new fangled startups are more keen to burn foreign VC money and grow rather than actually look at business bottom line. For example he takes exception to plush campuses, large and heavily compensated workforce and deep discounting which he thinks will not be core to differentiate the likes of Flipkart, Ola from global brands like Amazon or Uber which have better technology and deeper pockets. He also takes exception to India based ecommerce brands flouting FDI laws due to their socio-political clout as well as asking for protectionism from government hypocrtically when most of their VC friends are from abroad.

He also takes exception to India based ecommerce brands flouting FDI laws due to their socio-political clout as well as asking for protectionism from government hypocrtically when most of their VC friends are from abroad. The author further derides the "Last Man Standing" shootout model of funding when everything boils down to a winner take all market. He also hints that with the same VC investing in both say for example Flipkart and insuring himself by investing in Amazon also; it sets up dangerous double games that may get played. Many of his criticisms get quite repetitive and drag from the pace of the story.
One of the successful ventures of the author was the foray into offline retailing which they successfully built, grew and sold (now More). This offers some respite as a happy story among the gloom.
Also, I liked the authors way at looking at customer service as an exceptional case to providing a good customer experience. Rather than tracking how many calls you successfully closed in customer service, the author recommends to pay more attention to why the call was needed in the first place. Another interesting aspect of the authors thought is to build a e-commerce company as purely a technology middleman with nor human resources and full automation (the retail equivalent of a driver-less car). I found this interesting and quite possible with advanced in AI and automation today (one tidbit : Amazon has a patent on shipping you a good, even before you order it :))
The deeply personal part is at the end. The author says that he tried to push IndiaPlaza as a profitable company when the industry was chasing GMV and growth and pedigreed (IIT/IIM/Ivy League) founders. He sees this as a mindset that he could not accept nor even promote with a spiced up Power Point deck. He personally feels talent need not be restricted to a prestigious school but can come from anywhere. He describes the hell he went through personally when he was not able to sell his enterprise against heavy competition by deep discounters and a bad investment climate due to the financial recession. Some of his struggles like being asked to step down as CEO, being abused by creditors in office, dragged to police stations and being ditched by his friends make you feel sad for him. At some point the author even contemplates death but happily for him it passes away. He demonstrates tremendous integrity in guarding the companys customer database and paying of some of the bills of the company from his own pocket in the trying times. I agree with him that Indian government needs to do a lot to assist entrepreneurs to smoothly exist a failing corporation.
I think this story appeals to people who are passionate and want to start out on their own and need a senior industry veteran to point out the snakes in the grass. Further, I do hope the e-commerce bubble bursts quickly and we see more saner profitable digital companies and not just cash guzzlers.
Best of luck to Vaithee. I wish you all the best as you continue to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Until Today!: Devotions for Spiritual Growth and Peace of Mind
Until Today!: Devotions for Spiritual Growth and Peace of Mind
This book has helped me through the toughest of times. I really love how it's not all "you're wonderful and perfect" it forces you to look at how your actions, environment and entire being contributes to your situation. Sometimes the moments in are lives are beyond our control but we have control over how we react to it. And this book really forces us to do that. I'm a massive fan and what's even better is that you can go back and revise the devotions dependent on what you are going through at that very moment. I like to pray/meditate after reading and actually use the words to improve everything I do. This book really forces you to live in the now and be mindful. It's not a religious book yet it is you can apply it to whatever faith system you follow if you are religious/atheist/agnostic/spiritual. I can't recommend it enough for people who are going through a tough time or maybe just want to self improve and feel more present in their lives!
Henry Ford: A Life From Beginning to End (Biographies of Business Leaders Book 3)
Henry Ford: A Life From Beginning to End (Biographies of Business Leaders Book 3)
Henry Ford, as a man who had an incredible impact on America as well as the rest of the world, was a great choice for Hourly History. It is too bad that the book wasn't able to live up to the fame of the man.

There is much information about Ford, and the author has mentioned the good as well as the bad, giving readers a balanced view. Topics range from the five-dollar wage and the assembly line to Ford's international businesses and his antisemitism.

Unfortunately, it appears that the book was published quickly, and even a cursory proofreading could have picked up many of the errors that litter the pages. Punctuation is sometimes used, sometimes not, and there is no style consistency. While it is possible to understand what the author is saying in many instances, the sentence errors are inexcusable. For instance: "In 1872, portions of Montana and Wyoming territories were declared the Yellowstone National Park Act" or "Ford created a huge publicity arrangement in Detroit to ensure that the new about his new car would reach the public." These are not the only errors in the book. You can't turn a page without finding one. Any writer will experience typos while creating a book; the responsible ones will ensure a decent proofread of their work before offering it up to the public.

Bottom line: Decent book about Ford's life with a haphazard effort by the author. Three stars.

COOLA Organic Sunless Tan Firming Lotion, Pina Colada, 6 Fl Oz
I bought this based on some online reviews I read on other sites. This stuff is the real deal. The first time I used it, I was hooked. I realized I used a generous amount the first time, so the second time I tried to use a bit less because I actually wasted some. I found out the generous application is what prevents any streaking. I did end up with a bit of streak on my leg the second time because I tried to apply as little as possible. I learned my lesson.

It has a tropical smell, which I love. If you're sensitive to fragrance, it might be too much. Overall, this is an amazing product. I would rather use this than sit in the sun any day. The color is rich but very natural and even. This stuff is amazing, and the facial serum by them is even better.
JBL T750BTNC Wireless Over-Ear Headphones with Noise Cancellation - Black (JBLT750BTNCBLKAM)
JBL T750BTNC Wireless Over-Ear Headphones with Noise Cancellation - Black (JBLT750BTNCBLKAM)
Just got these today. I tried charging the headphones from three different things (Computer and two different chargers), using four different cables, including the one it comes with.
The charge light comes on for two or three seconds, then turns off. Left it connect for a couple of hours. Which is how long it's supposed to take to charge fully, just in case it's charging but the light isn't turning on.
Tried turning it on after (holding the power button for two, five, and ten seconds on separate occasions) and nothing. No lights or sound.
I'm going to try charging one more time, but if it doesn't work, I'll be returning it.
Edit: The "professional" product reviews were glowing so I got them to exchange the bad ones for a new pair. Recieved them a few days ago. These work much better. Sound is great. I'm a little hard off hearing, but they seem to have great dynamic range. I'm changing it to three stars and not more because the malfunctioning pair were legitimately bad and a genuine product of theirs. So that's my average experience.
Pizzas
Pizzas
Lazily done. I expected a history of pizza around the world.

Let me save you some time - what we got was: 1/ Pizza from Marseille is good. 2/ Pizza was invented in Naples. 3/ Italians went to New York and made pizza there. 4/ people in Naples aren't too happy that others think New York is the "capital of pizza". 4/ But really, in Marseille pizza is better. Cue some footage of street pizza joints in France.

Now you can go and watch something better. You're welcome.
Walden and Civil Disobedience
Walden and Civil Disobedience
I first read "Walden" in a freshmen seminar course in American Lit, and it was quite daunting reading at the time. Thoreau seemed an over-rated author: he darts from topic to topic with little to no transition, he quotes obscure passages, he sermonizes. And perhaps most frustrating of all, he wants his writing to be ambiguous (see for instance, Chapter 18), and for an assiduous college student eager to absorb and analyze, this can be quite an overwhelming experience. So, I got very little of Thoreau at the time.

Ten year's later, I decide that I would pick "Walden" up again. I told myself that I would stop whenever the reading became too discursive or abstract... And I did not stop until I reached the end!

As any student of early American lit. knows, Thoreau built a small house for himself in the woods of Walden Pond in Concord, MA, where he lived for two years (1845-1847), documenting his experiences living there in "Walden." He hoed beans for a living, lived a mile from his nearest neighbor and survived on the absolute minimum that he could. In his downtime, he would swim, fish, read and take in his surroundings, describing every sight and sound with the utmost care. Thoreau creates for his reader an unforgettable Nature-observing experience with such richness of detail that we feel we are right there with him. We hear the owl's cry, we witness the loon diving into the pond and the two ants going head-to-head in battle, we see the blue of Walden Pond. He is a student of Nature of the highest order and extracts from each of these experiences a parable about humanity: what we lack and how we can be free. For Thoreau, Walden Pond is a place of purity, an oasis, an Eastern paradise on earth, a Ganges.

An ardent non-conformist, Thoreau also uses this book as a sounding board for his "radical" views and practices. He detests the railroad and its encroachment upon his land (and more generally, that of technology on human and animal life). He refuses to pay taxes to a government that supports slavery and the Mexican War (for which he is briefly imprisoned during one of his sallies to the village). He prefers Eastern spirituality and meditation to Western religiosity. He spurns the high life and abstains from drinking and eating meat. He believes that man is in a dormant intellectual state, from which he can one day rise and embrace the dawn. And the list continues...

Thoreau's prose is also rather unique. What one must remember is that he is faithful student of Emerson and like Emerson, his paragraphs often contain non sequiturs, digressions and sometimes outright contradictions. It was perhaps this lack of logical linearity that initially kept from enjoying his work as a college student. We must be indulgent with Thoreau: his wit, his aphorisms, his acumen are well worth the sometimes uncomfortable task of deciphering his prose. I am very glad that at nearly the same age as Thoreau, I took a journey to Walden Pond with him.

A Naked Tree: Love Sonnets to C. S. Lewis and Other Poems
A Naked Tree: Love Sonnets to C. S. Lewis and Other Poems
A Naked Tree is subtitled "Love Sonnets to C.S. Lewis and Other Poems." However, this subtitle is misleading and used for name recognition to help the book sell more copies. The book is in fact 300 pages long with only 40 of those pages devoted to the Love Sonnets. The book is organized chronologically and starts with poetry as early as 1929, when Joy Davidman would have been only 14 years of age. I remember poetry I wrote at that age, and it was nowhere near as composed as her poetry. Here is a sample:

What spur of gold is this that pricks the dawn
To further flaming of its fierce desire
Of glory? On the eager winds of morn
Comes bowing down the soul-devouring fire
That keenly lashes the mad spirit higher
And higher yet; the dry hot fever of fame,
The far bright crown to which all slaves aspire-
Need most imperative, to which the name
Of fondest love shows but a flickering flame.

After her early poetry, the complete "Letter to a Comrade" is included in this anthology, and this section is followed by "Poems 1939-1940" and "Poems 1941-1952." Looking at just the length of these sections, it seems that Davidman did a bulk of her poetry writing from 1938 ("Letter to a Comrade" poetry) to 1940, as these two sections/three years comprised 125 of the 300 pages. When you finally do arrive at the love sonnets, it feels like arriving home after a long journey. Her poetry up until that point felt like she wasn't sure who she was and that she was searching. The sonnets to C.S. Lewis, it is like she has finally found what she is looking for, not just C.S. Lewis, but God as well.

Reading through this book, I can safely say two things. First, Joy Davidman was a much better poet than her husband C.S. Lewis. Second, Davidman was much less appreciated and acknowledged that C.S. Lewis. If you want to understand not just Joy Davidman, but also C.S. Lewis, then this is a book that you should take the time to read. Once again, Don W. King demonstrates his impeccable research and brings us an important book on Lewis and Davidman. If you have an interest in either/both of these authors, pick up a copy of this book for your personal library.
La segunda vida de Bree Tanner (Saga Crepúsculo) (Spanish Edition)
La segunda vida de Bree Tanner (Saga Crepúsculo) (Spanish Edition)
Me gusto mucho el libro. Sobre todo porque se puede conocer la historia desde otro punto de vista que no es el de Bella. Los nuevos personajes. Ver como fue que surgieron y mal-convivieron estos neofitos. Diego y Fred, Riley, y sobre todo Bree, te hace sumergirte mas profundamente en el mundo de los vampiros de Stephenie. En esta historia maravillosa que ha creado y que hemos disfrutado.
El final, aunque triste, creo que fue lo mejor, porque cuando lees Eclipse, crees que Edward esta hablando con Bella y cuando lees esa misma parte en este libro, te das cuenta que los dialogos encanjan de una forma magnifica y que no solo esta preocupado por Bella, los Vulturis y su familia, sino que hace todo lo posible por salvar a Bree de su final. Esa comunicacion entre ellos, entre Bree y Edward fue de lo mejor. Muy valiente Bree, le hizo saber todo lo que pudo. Su personaje me gusto y de haber logrado integrarse a los Cullen, creo que lo hubiera logrado, despues de todo, tanto ella como Diego y hasta Fred no estaban mal encaminados a pesar de su comienzo con Riley y Victoria.

Recomiendo el libro. Una vez mas Stephenie Meyer me hace disfrutar de una buena lectura. Thank Stephenie!
Lover's Touch (Penny Jordan Collector's Editions)
Lover's Touch (Penny Jordan Collector's Editions)
Sometimes I find Penny Jordan's books very repetitive in that the heroine keeps mulling over the same emotions over and over again until it becomes really annoying. However, this tendency is not too overdone in this romance and I liked the added dimension of the jealous secretary which stopped it being too maudling. As with most of the Penny Jordan heroines this one is rather spineless and allows her lack of confidence to turn her into a somewhat ineffectual woman. The story is readable and good for whiling away a few idle moments.

Ohjeh. Ich liebe die Bücher von Patricia Cornwell. Eigentlich... Aber hier habe ich mich wirklich bis zur Mitte absolut durchgequält in der Hoffnung, dass da irgendwann mal noch Schwung reinkommt. Wirklich nicht ihr Glanzstück! Endlose Psycho-Machtspielchen, viel Nachdenken... alles sehr langatmig und ich wusste bis etwa zur Hälfte des Buches noch nicht wirklich, worum es eigentlich geht.
Der zweite Teil des Buches ist dann zum Glück doch noch spannend und alles fügt sich zusammen.- Deshalb doch noch 3 Sterne.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Hufflepuff Edition
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Hufflepuff Edition
It's hard to believe that it's been 20 years since the initial release of 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'. As someone who has grown up reading about and adoring the world that J.K. Rowling has so intricately created over a span of nearly two decades, I have to admit that I have escaped to Hogwarts more than once to join Harry, Ron and Hermione on their adventures and in their quest to defeat You-Know-Who.

This year, on Harry's birthday, I am planning to re-read the series from start to finish and upon inspecting my copy of Philosopher's Stone, I discovered that over the space of twenty years the binding had become battered and the pages were fragile. Well, it's a much loved book! As a proud Hufflepuff I decided to purchase the special 20th anniversary edition of the book and I cannot be more pleased with my purchase and here's why:

Firstly, the book itself is stunning. The artwork on the sleeve is beautiful and the fact that the edges of the pages are decorated in the Hufflepuff colours of black and yellow is a lovely touch. Looking at the book, you can tell that a lot of thought and effort has gone in to making the 20th anniversary collection something worth owning.

Upon opening the book, you are greeted by a table of contents. J.K. Rowling has provided exclusive information that was only available on Pottermore for readers about the house, including; an introduction to the house including character quotes and key characters in the history of the house, information about the founder of the house (Helga Hufflepuff, in my case), the house relic (Gryffindor's Sword, Hufflepuff's Cup, Ravenclaw's Diadem and Slytherin's Locket respectively), the house mascot or livery and the house ghost. After you have completed the first section of information about the house you are greeted by a Tolkien-esque sketch of the Hogwarts grounds. This fangirl's heart skipped a beat when she saw that!

Before I get on to the story itself, I would like to mention that at the back of the book there is further information about Hogwarts and the house you selected. There is information about the sorting ceremony, a quiz, a thorough description of the common room, information about the head of the house and famous alumni – in the case of Hufflepuff this includes Tonks and Newt Scamander.

The story of Philosopher's Stone appears to be exactly as I remember it with only aesthetic changes to things like notes and letters between characters – these now appear to be handwritten by the characters rather than the centralised/italicised style in my older copy of the book. There are also stars now embellishing the tops of title pages for chapters. Not a massive change to the actual book but enough to make me sit up and take notice.

So is it worth investing in a new copy of Philosopher's Stone? In my opinion, yes, especially if your original copy is as old and as beaten up as mine is. There is also a lot of information in there about the houses that I imagine many people won't know, especially about the major houses – Gryffindor and Slytherin. Plus it looks beautiful on a bookshelf, so why not pick it up? It's a perfect purchase for any Potterhead!

Ich habe zum ersten Mal ein derartiges Kissen erworben und muss sagen, dass ich von der ersten Benutzung an sehr begeistert bin. Letzteres liegt daran, dass mein Nacken durch das Kissen gut gestützt wird, dabei aber das Liegefühl herrlich weich ausfällt. Bei meinen bisherigen "normalen" Kissen musste ich diese immer unter meinem Nacken zusammenknüllen, was dann allerdings zur Folge hatte, dass am Ende der Nacken bzw. der Kopf zu hoch lagen, was wiederum zu Verspannungen führte.

Besonders hervorzuheben ist noch der sog. "Memory Foam" der dafür sorgt, dass dass Kissen nach Benutzung von selbst wieder in den Ursprungszustand zurückkehrt. Im Übrigen stellt die löchrige Struktur des Gelschaums einen angenehmen Temperaturausgleich her.

Insgesamt also ein Schlafgenuss, den man sich besser nicht entgehen lassen sollte. Vom Ergebnis her daher eine absolute Kaufempfehlung.

The is a dual battery charger that you plug directly into a wall socket. It is not one of those chargers that you plug into a USB power supply. That is a good thing....I think those chargers you plug into a USB power are stupid. They don't charge fast and you have to get a USB power supply.

This is a super fast charger. It charged a drained battery in a few hours.

Each of the two sockets has an LED that is green if the socket is empty. It turns red when you plug a battery in and turns green when the battery is fully charged. Works great.

I did have one small issue with this. Sometimes the battery is hard to pull out of the socket. I don't know what causes and it doesn't happen all the time. Maybe I am not putting the battery straight into the socket?

Pour le prix je m'attendais vraiment à mieux ! Ok on est sur du 1er prix en automatique mais la qualité plastique chinois fait mal, on dirait un jouet kinder surprise !
Alors c'est clair elle bouffe de l'eau, compter les 3/4 du réservoir pour 1 expresso de 30cl entre allumage et éteignage, la totalité du réservoir pour 2 expresso.... Le réglage de la quantité d'eau est mal fait puisque l'on ne sait pas combien d'eau va sortir en fonction du réglage, heureusement le réglage peut se faire en temps réel.
Cependant point positif, elle est effectivement très rapide pour un expresso à la sauvette, compter 1m30. Donc content de ca, le matin, la tête en vrac, café tout rapide sans effort !
Enfin, parlons de la qualité d'extraction, médiocre, même très médiocre, mon ancienne saeco intellia fait mieux mais je l'ai mise au boulot, je regrette qu'elle n'existait plus dans le commerce pour moins cher en plus... Pour ceux qui passe d'une machine à capsule (qui est tout, sauf une machine à café), peut être y trouverez-vous votre compte mais on est TRES loin d'un café de bar, comme je l'ai vu sur d'autres commentaires. Je savais que c'était d'ailleurs impossible pour une machine automatique, de faire aussi bien qu'un vrai barista de comptoir mais au vu des commentaires je m'attendais à un bon résultat, on en est loin... Pour un vrai buveur de café comme moi, ca passe un peu comme une machine automatique d'autoroute, je n'y glisserais jamais mes meilleurs grains de café. Fait donc le taff pour le matin en réglant au plus corsé, ou pour un ptit café de trop en fin de journée, celui qu'on regrette mais qu'on voulait absolument se faire !
Pour le bruit rien à redire, jamais vu une machine automatique autant silencieuse, je ne comprends pas certains commentaires, d'ailleurs on s'en moque du bruit sur ce type de machine, mais la, chapeau, le moulin est rapide et silencieux, on entends à peine la percolation.
Enfin, la buse vapeur est une bonne blague, une vraie honte ! La pression qui en sort ne permettra jamais de chauffer un lait correctement, en fait j'aurais du prendre la solo, parce qu'il est clair que je ne m'en servirais jamais.

Zu meinem Kaffeevollautomaten von Melitta gehört ein 1 Liter Milchbehälter aus Kunststoff, auch der Innenstab ist aus Kunststoff. Dadurch blieb die Milch nicht lange frisch bzw. verdarb schon nach wenigen Tagen trotz Lagerung im Kühlschrank. Ein Thermomilchbehälter aus Metall kam zwar in Betracht aber da kann man leider nie den Füllzustand von außen sehen. Von daher schied auch solch ein Milchbehälter für mich aus.
Glas hält Milch länger frisch, außerdem ist dieser Glasbehälter wesentlich günstiger als ein Metallbehälter. Der Innenstab ist zum Glück nicht aus Kunststoff, sondern aus Metall. Der Deckel sitzt passend auf dem Behälter drauf, nicht zu locker, nicht zu fest.
Die Milch bleibt im Glasbehälter länger frisch als im Kunststoffbehälter und sieht außerdem sehr schön aus. Eventuell, kaufe ich mir gesondert noch einen Gummistopfen um das obige Loch für den Milchschlauch zu schließen, um noch länger die Milch frisch zu halten, da ich nicht so oft Kaffeemilchgetränke zubereite.
Bin 100% zufrieden mit diesem Produkt und würde es immer wieder Empfehlen. Preis top, Quali top!
