I laughed so hard throughout this book. The Russian grandmother created me crazy and cracked me up in equal measures. This is a lighthearted, witty, amazing read. Once again Christina Hovland has delivered a page-turning book. Her humor shines, and Jase and Heather are likable and hot together. One of the best rom-coms I've read.
I loved this book. I loved the antagonizing relationship between Heather and Jase. They were mates but the banter between them in trying to figure out their pretend and not so pretend relationship was so enjoyable. They were a amazing couple and really brought out the best in each other. Of course nothing could be simple and Jase’s family, mainly his Babushka, interfere with their relationship. Babushka is a hoot and Heather really gets along with her and gets pulled into her crazy schemes. You will definitely have a smile on your face as you read this book.
I've read so a lot of reviews that say books are hilarious, when they turn out to be corny or just stupid. This is not one of those. I actually laughed out loud through the whole book. The main characters are okay but it's the supporting characters that really create the book. The elderly Russian grandmother steals the storyline. She is a hoot, and you'll love her. She's definitely the reason for most of the laughs throughout. So a lot of things work for this couple to obtain together, then things go haywire to stop them. Most of the things that go wrong are not of their doing. Hard to believe a man who has been through the military, and one failed marriage allows his family to totally run his life, but the reasons behind that become more clear toward the end. Amazing characters, amazing ,moving storyline, lots of humor, hot sex, emotion, nice HEA, in this stand alone. Take note, lots of Four letter words that seem to turn some off, but used appropriately. Amazing book. Fun read.
Blow Me Away was a fabulous book. The characters are so simple to like. You can totally feel the chemistry between them. And the family dynamics support create the story more fun. Christina did an awesome job with this story!
Loved this second book in the series. Really enjoyed reading as this couple got together. So much amazing items in this book! Love this author, will continue to read and have fun her books. She is going to the top of my must read category.
Um lixo, absurdamente lento, fica 90% atualizando a tela, a navegação trava, dá um trabalhão passar de uma notícia para a próxima, para piorar écheio de propagandas enormes que ocupam a tela e obstruem a leitura fluida e ainda consomem a conexão. O refresh das páginas exige conexão super rápida pois fica carregando o tempo todo, após ler uma notícia não é possível ir diretamente para a próxima, é necessário voltar à página anterior que começa a carregar tudo de novo, um verdadeiro suplício ler o jornal com ele. Sou assinante há 60 dias mas vou desistir, juro que tentei.
Houve grande melhora da interface com as últimas atualizações, mas o aplicativo ainda fica importunando o assinante com promoções do tipo "assine já", que ficam piscando no inferior da tela. Anúncios deveriam ser apenas para usuário free, não tê-los deveria ser um dos benefícios de assinar o jornal.
Another 'must have' tool from VBE..... Allow your phone's sensors do the work they are capable of.... With newer technology, application developers are doing awesome things making it possible for average people like me to investigate the spirit dimension.. Was not feasible only a few short years ago. Thanks for the amazing work, Ricky V!... This is kicking it up!!
Very well structured and complete. It has been really helpful to several Delphi developers I know, which had small or no experience with COM. With this book in your hands you will learn not only "how", but also "why". It covers a lot of concepts and explanations that usually Delphi programmers ignore or don't know. I particularly liked the DCOM topics. The examples are very amazing and well-chosen too. A amazing job, for sure...
This is not your typical 1200 page Delphi biceps-builder. This book is compact, well written and to the point. No filler, just meat. The chapters develop each subject with very amazing examples that illustrate COM and some amazing coding practices to boot. One caveat is that he does not always give each step if your working through the examples so you may have to do a small detective work to search out how a variable or interface showed up where it did. Take heart though, all the code can be downloaded"~ from the Fresh Riders web website and the examples run fine. He also affords you the curtsey of compiling the examples for you so you can run them even if you don't have the recent ver of Delphi. The book can be used equally well with Delphi 3 through 5."~ server by the second chapter!"~ done does not implement this interface directly. It is much more practical to allow COM do the marshaling for you.
Looks nice, but not sure how long it will sically it is a thin piece of aluminum with a black coating on the outside. They ship it with 7 pieces of double-sided tape and it sticks to the outside of the existing gas cover. No nuts, bolts, or anything mechanical to attach. So, it will latest on the car as long as the double-sided tape lasts.
A lot of have described this item as cheap-it is not. It is thin, because it does have to fit over the existing cover-but it does so perfectly and installs in minutes. The seller provides VBM tape to adhere this to your gas cover and this is the same tape that is used by auto manufacturers to adhere all of the create and model badges on your vehicle, so it will do the job. This is a much easier solution than replacing the entire door-- looks just as good, with minimal effort and much less expensive for the same effect.
O jornal é excelente, mas o aplicativo precisa melhorar. Há um desperdício de espaço para leitura devido aos menus superiores, duas faixas de menu com conteúdos semelhantes. Além disso, sempre que rolamos o conteúdo para cima o application abre um popup que atrapalha a leitura. Também não vejo utilidade para o botão "continuar lendo" se eu já solicitei para abrir a matéria, isso é desnecessário. Parabenizo o editorial pela qualidade do conteúdo. Só deixa um pouco a desejar a usabilidade do app.
Passou dos limites. Fica abrindo propaganda por cima do texto e não dá pra fechar nem pra ler a notícia. O suporte não resolve, as mensagens são ignoradas. Cancelar a assinatura só por telefone, e tem que brigar muito. A gente até quer dar dinheiro pra empresa, mas eles se esforçam pra não merecer.
Instalei o aplicativo do estadão faz mais de um ano e sempre sempre usei a versão gratuita. Eu era restrito a apenas 15 artigos por mês, mas isso já era algo. Algo eles colocaram uma propaganda que abre sempre que você clica num link ou volta para a página principal e a pior parte é um delay de 5 segundos entre a abertura do artigo e a abertura da propaganda. É muito comum você não conseguir fechar a propaganda e ter que fechar o aplicativo e tentar de novo só para ter que fechar uns 2 pop-ups por artigo.
I'm removing this (and most other Brazilian Android device apps) from my device because most don't help move to SD, even though they do not use Widgets or other capabilities requiring installation to the phone. As soon as the developers present some respect for users and best practices in development, I shall reconsider my score (and re-installing the apps).
Definitely an improvement over the brief sprints through the topic found in other general Delphi guides, but... When I got my copy, I wondered if I got a various edition. My copy has a picture of ruins, not the elephant in the phone booth pictured above(NOTE: The cover image has since been changed on Amazon to the ruins.) I was also surprised when several examples from the book didn't work right on Delphi 3 or 5.(Surprised because previous reviewers commented on the examples being usable.) Several features discussed, including not needing to define functions that return HRESULT, would work when called by another Delphi application (only when using an Interface, not DispInterface or Ole Variants), but not from VBA. Changing back to the 'old-style' HRESULT code fixed that. Not only that, but the author seems to forget the names of the recently defined interfaces when referring to them later (ex: IAreaUnitConverter becomes IUnitAuto! ). When I checked the web website to the examples to test and compare with my code, I found that only selected examples were actually contained in the zip file. All I can figure is that I got a "beta" copy.
A very interesting and worthwhile book, if you wish to learn about Interfaces, COM programming, Type Librarys, DCom and all that stuff. It provides a amazing set of examples, and some very fine sample code, such as a type library viewer, which is almost worth the of the book itself. Well worth a read if you wish to integrate COM into your delphi apps.
Bug EXTREMAMENTE irritante: se você está usando algum outro app, chega uma notificação e você abre o Estadão Mobile a partir da notificação, o programa "rouba" a sessão do application que você estava usando antes -- se você tenta voltar para o mesmo, o que abre é o Estadão Mobile. É preciso derrubar manualmente o application a partir do gerenciador de tarefas e abri-lo de novo.
Ficou pior. Nova interface sobre a mesma estrutura de notícias e sessões. Muito lento. Impossível localizar-se. Tem quebras de links como em mais colunistas. A versão anterior bem modesta era melhor. Porque simplemente não copiam ou se baseiam no NYT, Guardian. Um retrocesso...
Desde que passei a usar, sempre travou con certa frequência. Contudo, basta abrir novamente que funcionava. Agora, faz semanas que nem abre mais e, mesmo após inúmeros envios do erro, não se dão o trabalho de corrigir ou sequer dar algum tipo de retorno. LAMENTÁVEL
I'm always suspicious of a book from an author I hadn't heard of before and ordering it online didn't help. Within the first couple of pages I was sure I had bought a rehash of everything I had read about COM in so a lot of other books during the latest yearand a half. Seeing the a lot of pages of printed code, while I 'fan previewed' the book convinced me that this was the 'filler' of a lightweight. But this was not so. By page 50 Mr. Harmon was clearly taking me locations I hadn't been and by the end of the third chapter, I knew that this book would fit nicely between Danny Thorpe and Ray Konopka on my programmers ic explains COM from a perspective familiar to a Delphi programmer and doesn't waste time teaching OOP 101 as so a lot of other books of the genre. He starts each fresh zone on friendly turf to a typical delphi programmer, creates a framwork, and builds on that structure to explain rather complex concepts quickly and effectively. I found his way of teaching comprehensive and thorough - yet demanding. If you aren't already reasonably comfortable with OOP than you still have a small more homework to do before you move onto COM. But it'll be here when you are. Even a general understanding of interfaces, com and dcom would be advisable though though he does review the basics briefly. But then he quickly moves through interfaces and drills down into levels that I hadn't encountered and I'm not yet at page 100. About a third of the method through chapter three and I knew I was on the clock - that this book would for itself in no time.I must admit that I am only into Chapter 5 now but did catch a peek of all to come. If you are a reasonably seasoned programmer and wish to move on to COM with the rest of the Windows programming community, this is how you do it. Simply begin reading at page one, do every example in the book as you go along, sometime before the appendix you will have your COM/DCOM wings. The embedded source code is there because it has to be there. Nearly every line is referenced in the narrative and the text depends on it. If you already have programmed some COM/DCOM experience as I had, you may still search the read worthwhile.I must caution that the book is exceptionally dry and without witticisms or amusing anecdotes. Mr. Harmon is down to business and makes no result to entertain the anyone that I can tell. You won't even search a jab at Microsoft here. But if you wish to learn COM/DCOM as a Delphi programmer, you have come to the right place. You can always go out to the club when you're done.
This book has already added several nuclear warheads to my programming arsenal. It explained a lot of concepts I have struggled with in a very explicit manner. There is a severe issue with this book however. I have already found errors in the code examples that have hindered my learning. The top code example on page 24, and on page 26 are amazing examples. On page 24, TObject was not typecasted as a TFormattedInteger and thus could not be casted "AS" an IFormattedNumber. It generated the compiler error described on page 25 even though I had a GUID declared in the IFormattedNumber interface. On page 26, MyInteger is incorrectly declared as a IFormattedInteger, even though no such Interface is declared in any of his other examples. I do not wish to belittle this perfect book however. I just simply cannot give a book with these types of errors 5 stars when the writer obviously did not try every example he presents. It is definately still worth buying. I even suggest buying this in tandem with "Delphi4 Unleashed" by Charley Calvert because that book explains COM/Interfaces a small differently and can support you obtain the concepts faster by filling in some of the gaps.

I search the book usefull for writing COM objects with delphi. This the only book I search at amazon writing COM objects with delphi. But I have a question about writing DCOM objects. At page 299 under the title "Creating DCOM client". The author says us to import b type library. But I cannot search this on neither my machineor anywhere else. Is it a standart Type library? It will be very amazing if you ilimunate us for this. Thanks You.
Until now the only decent Delphi reference on COM has been the two chapters by John Lam in Marco Cantu's "Delphi Developer's Handbook". This fresh book presents 500 pages of well written, focused coverage of the practicalities of Delphi's COM implementation. It is ideal for those with moderate Delphi skills who wish to come up to speed quickly in writing ActiveX Control or Form solutions, or who wish a amazing explanation of the usage of interfaces, variants, connection points, automation or though it goes into depth in a couple of locations - structured storage and property sets in particular - readers will still need to look to people like Binh Ly for advanced discussion of threading models and so forth. I was hoping to search detailed discussion of the internal workings of DAX, TOleContainer and the TComObject/Factory descendants, but most of the code in the book focuses on *using* the VCL framework rather than on its design and the different bugs and gotchas it works ose with C++ COM/OLE experience looking for Delphi solutions (eg those rolling their own OLE DB providers, windowless ActiveX controls or Active Document servers) may be disappointed: it's not "Inside ATL" for the VCL. However I think the majority of Delphi developers - who don't have time to read Brockschmidt or Box but just wish tools and solutions that work - will search the book a amazing time-saver and reference. COM newbies wanting Delphi guides need look no 's certainly an perfect contribution to the Delphi literature. I'll be buying a second copy for the office, but it left me thirsty for more.
