  • Comparative book review

    Below is a a short comparative review of tow books about Java concurrency which I’ve read in the last couple of months. Disclaier: the Amazon links are affiliate ones. Java Concurrency in Practice is an interesting book, which should be a must-read for anyone doing concurrent programming in Java (and in these days if you […]

  • noevir review

    noevir is a “direct marketing” company focusing on cosmetics and “* care” (skin, body, etc) type of products. After looking at their site I’m mostly neutral about them. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to join such (“direct marketing”) organizations, but that’s not specific to noevir. It also says “Ginza Tokyo” in the header, which is a […]

  • scentsy review

    scentsy has an interesting concept for providing different scents in the room: rather than burning different materials (like candles or sticks) it uses a lightbulb to heat the wax. This provides a “smoke-free” way to enjoy your fragrances. An other advantage of the concept is that it keeps the warm glow of the candle. If […]

The particular niche eDirectHost focuses on is ecommerce web design.

  • FindersUK review

    Finding relatives was always a topic which interested me marginally, so I was interested in checking out the Finders UK website (which BTW, can also be read in other ways because URLs don’t have the concept of capitalization implicitly – lets just leave at that). They offer different services like tracing heirs. Unfortunately (for me) […]
