Minus one star becouse of adds - I am already paying DR licence so why I have commercials here? And I mean visual pop-up adds in tha app, not audio adds in the radio. And minus second star for battery consumption. Watching YT takes less battery than this application running in a background. Plus one star for a amazing help :)
To application developer I have purchase the application and its work well , only menu on car android device head unit is so huge , so difficult to select station because application cannot use on horizontal . I hope full it's will be better soon
Var god i starten. Men nu begynder den pludselig at afspille musik 2-3 gange om dagen. Og når man så lukker app'en så spiller den bare videre. ( Android kommer også med advarsler om den bruger både data og batteri når den køre i baggrunden) Det er irriterende da app'en ellers har tjent mig godt da den virkede. men nu må det være nok.
If there ever was a book that has it all, a book that holds your attention, a book that makes you wish to know more, this is it.“Life at the Dakota” is a socioeconomic history of the popular Fresh York Town residential building. Yes, that one – the one where scenes from "Rosemary’s Baby" was filmed, the one where Jason Robards once slept overnight at the wheel of his car, the one where a resident displayed a her favorite stuffed horse, the one where John Lennon was e Dakota was constructed between 1880 and 1884 and opened October 27, 1884. It was built by the architectural firm of Henry Janeway Hardenbergh with the design by Edward Clark, the head of the Singer Sewing Machine e Dakota was, indeed, a building well ahead of its time, with central heating, its own in-house power plant, the first elevators installed in a residential building, a gymnasium, and much more. Before it was opened for residency, all of the apartments were leased, and no vacancies existed from then until e book begins with an in-depth history of Fresh York and the Central Park West area, including the dichotomy of the lifestyles and economic factors between the East and West Sides. Here we learn about the Who’s Who and Who Wants to Be and Who Doesn’t Care Who’s e original apartments, dining room, gymnasium, tennis court, servants’ rooms, laundry rooms, wine cellar, et cetera were lavish or simply practical, according to function. No cost was spared. We search that over the years, even at the onset, residents took to moving and rebuilding walls and reconfiguring the space. One resident even had a sunken pool installed, only to be covered over at another time, and then rediscovered during a future remodeling project decades ere are numerous stories about a lot of of the residents and the employees, their quirkiness, their practicalities, and their contributions and influence on The Dakota. There are people whose names were, or are, well-known, and those who are now shadows in history or pop culture, but intriguing e building became a co-op in the early 1960s, and we learn how that occurred with all its brouhaha, and how that continues to impact its operation today – or at least until 1979 when this book was is is a very tightly-written book and is, therefore, extremely interesting and difficult to place down. Each chapter is filled with so much material on the people, politics, cloak-and-dagger tomfooleries, and economic data that I wish to learn more, yet it’s a shame that the book ends its acc in 1979. It practically screams for an addendum to share what happened since then.I recommend “Life at the Dakota” for anyone who likes history, architecture, mystery, intrigue, and/or entertaining ideas. Yes, it even has a trio of old cocktail ere is a book that has it all, a book that holds your attention, a book that makes you wish to know more – this is it!
i bought this because of an "ad" on facebook-it promised a view of John Lennon's and Yoko's life at the Dakota. what i got was an amazing book that delved into the complete history of the marvelous apartment complex and the a lot of people who have lived there and the rich background of how it came to be the Landmark it is in NYC....Loved this book...a amazing read!!!
Amazing read. It is fascinating to read about an old building and its put in time. If I were a Fresh Yorker, I would wish this book on my coffee table for my mates to look over/thumb through when they got tired of the party and didn't wish to go home - just yet. The book takes the reader back to the very beginning - before the idea of this building was conceived. If you like to learn about monuments, and this building is a monument, you will have fun this book. You will learn who bought apartments there and why, and also learn bout the newer generations who now occupy entire floors, suites, and little apartments. You will also learn how the occupants got control over the building and how they learned to govern themselves. Like I said it's a fascinating story and well written.
What an interesting book! The only thing I knew about this building was that John and Oko Lennon lived there. But this book gives the reader so much more: I learned a lot about how NYC developed and who were the people (many wealthy) who built up the city. The Dakota was built waaaaay uptown, for those days, as a home for the builder’s family. It was labeled because it was so far uptown (not considered so now!), that it might as well be in the Dakotas! Also, it was on “the WEST side—oh, the horrors—not the EAST. Enough to create Lady Astor wonder what on earth this man was doing! It is now divided into a lot of huge dwellings, occupied by the rich and popular (eg. Lauren Bacall).If you live in or near NYC, this is a must read. If you don’t, you’ll search it very interesting! I probably have gone past it a million times and never thought about it. Now, I really wish to walk past and think about all I’ve learned in this book! I also wish to read more of Stephen Birmingham’s books about the “in” crowd of times past. Fascinating!
Very well researched and well written. I really enjoyed this book. I highly recommend it if you like to learn about Fresh York and those who lived there. Well I watched Rosemary's baby to immersed myself even more in that fascinating building. Amazing book.
Life at the Dakota was interesting, but not quite what I expected. A lot of of the names mentioned were unfamiliar to me and the author didn't always tell us why they were important. I still don't have a "feel" for the attic rooms or the layout of the building. In fact, it was rather confusing. Some original blueprints or pictures would have been helpful. The writing was clear and very readable. What Stephen Birmingham left out of the book may have been because the building is still inhabited by some of the original families, and they may have refused to give him permission to be more specific in his descriptions or to contain pictures. I did skim some locations which I found to be repetitious or "unnecessary," but I did finish reading.
Though a lot of facts are thrown at you in this book, one isn't overwhelmed by it. The beginnings of the Dakota building are very eye-opening. Amazing read if you're looking for a taste of grandeur and a bit of pop psychology for the residents of the Dakota! Amazing for 18+
Yes, the book is old and therefore not feeling close in time to today -- but it is, after all, a history book. Just not a more current history. I found the book interesting all the method through until about the latest 10 percent which seemed repetitious to me. The people who lived in the Dakota from its beginning until the late '70s are interesting and quirky. It was fun to read about the disputes among the residents, the bigotry, and the a lot of renovations to the interior over the years (but it would have been nice to have seen images of the interior...I think that would have added quite a bit to one's appreciation of the book). I like Mr. Birmingham's writing style and will look for more of his books.
My introduction to the Dakota was John Lennon's murder. I figured if John Lennon could afford to live there, I never could, and this story confirms that! It's a fascinating look into the history of the building, and some of the (wealthy) people who have lived there. There is insight into that zone of Manhattan and explains the 'East Side, West Side" of Central Park. Entertainingg; recommend.
Book is fascinating for it's history until the late 70s when it begins to become clear that the book, though promoted as a latest publication, in actually a reprint of an almost 40 year old volume. Enjoyed the earliest history - the more contemporary not so much.
Very amazing application I am listening everyday mostly Los 40 and KissFM, the only annoying thing is that you cannot select the favorite radios screen to pop once the aplication is opened and when you are removing the headphones from the input the radio is still playing when most of the app's are pausing the music, or maybe it is an option in settings were I can select to pause it once the headphones are removed? It will be cool if these features can be added. Thanks
Llevo escuchando Onda Cero durante años, desgraciadamente las ultimas versiones para Android device hacen que el Application oficial de OndaCero no se pueda usar por que simplemente no funciona. Radios de España es increible, la radio no se corta nunca, ni en los tuneles ya que usar un bufer altisimo. Le doy 5/5 por que incluso gana a las Apps oficiales.
