About this book
 The untold story of a heroic band of Caribbean pirates whose defiance of imperial rule inspired revolt in colonial outposts across the worldIn the early eighteenth century, the Pirate Republic was home to some of the great pirate captains, including Blackbeard, "Black Sam" Bellamy, and Charles Vane. Along with their fellow pirates—former sailors, indentured servants, and runaway slaves—this "Flying Gang" established a crude but distinctive democracy in the Bahamas, carving out their own zone of freedom in which servants were free, blacks could be equal citizens, and leaders were chosen or deposed by a vote. They cut off trade routes, sacked slave ships, and severed Europe from its New World empires, and for a brief, glorious period the Republic was a success.

Longitude, The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time

Creator: Dava Sobel | Biography & Autobiography - 2010-07-05

Longitude is the dramatic human story of an epic scientific quest, and of Harrison's forty-year obsession with building his perfect timekeeper, known today as the chronometer.

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA

About this book
Anyone alive in the eighteenth century would have known that "the longitude problem" was the thorniest scientific dilemma of the day-and had been for centuries. Lacking the ability to measure their longitude, sailors throughout the great ages of exploration had been literally lost at sea as soon as they lost sight of land. Thousands of lives, and the increasing fortunes of nations, hung on a resolution. The scientific establishment of Europe-from Galileo to Sir Isaac Newton-had mapped the heavens in both hemispheres in its certain pursuit of a celestial answer. In stark contrast, one man, John Harrison, dared to imagine a mechanical solution-a clock that would keep precise time at sea, something no clock had ever been able to do on land. Longitude is the dramatic human story of an epic scientific quest, and of Harrison's forty-year obsession with building his perfect timekeeper, known today as the chronometer. Full of heroism and chicanery, it is also a fascinating brief history of astronomy, navigation, and clockmaking, and opens a new window on our world.

    Rating (115 reviews):

    Works great for PS4 and is easy to do if you follow instructions well!

    Works perfectly, fits the PS4 console perfectly, and was easy to install PS4 software.For those of you who have had trouble getting this to work with your PS4, you must follow the instructions on the Sony website exactly. Here is what I did:1. Use a usb flash drive that has at least 4GB of space. Check its properties to make sure it is formatted in FAT32. Create a folder named "PS4" in all caps and without the quotes. Inside of that folder create another folder named "UPDATE" in all caps, and without the quotes. On an internet connected computer go online to playstation.com/en-us/support/system-updates/ps4/ and go to the very bottom of the page where it says "Perform a New Installation of the System Software" and click the black "download now" button. The file should be over 800MB in size. If it is smaller, you are downloading the wrong update. Check again that you are using the link at the bottom of the page.

    The instructions were very easy to understand and helped a lot

    5/5 Kristy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Western Digital 1TB 2.5" Playstation 4 Hard Drive (PS4) (Video Game) I got this to replace my 500gb hard drive in my playstation 4. The product came with the hdd itself and a usb with ps4 update firmware for when you put in the new hard drive. The instructions were very easy to understand and helped a lot. I would recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade their ps4 memory. An added bonus is that it came with warranty as well which for the ones I looked at previously did not have that option and were much more expensive. All in all a great prouduct for the price.

    Great product, easy install. Here's a few tips.

    First off the packaging was excellent, the drive was perfectly protected. No worries there.Now I know most of the people purchasing this are doing so for the sake of upgrading their ps4 do they don't have to worry so much about those huge installs. Many are a little intimidated by it but don't be, your only obstacles are 5 screws that can be easily overcome with the right tool (a medium-sized Phillips-head screwdriver in this case), but there are a few things you can do to make things easier on yourself while you wait for your product to arrive. First off, make sure to have a usb flash drive with at least 1gb of free space. Secondly, head over to the Sony website and download the latest Ps4 firmware while making sure it is the proper firmware for a fresh install, if the file size is anywhere between 100-500 mb chances are it's the wrong file(In response to the one start review for this product, you most likely downloaded the wrong firmware file if you're getting errors... 5/5 Shiro - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Bad power supply

    I bought this drive in April 2008 to use for backups. I used it maybe 10 times for a total of about 25 hours. The rest of the time it was stored, unplugged. About a year after I bought it, the power supply failed. I had to call customer support and ask for a new one. As of May, 2009, they're out of stock and WD doesn't know when they'll be getting more. It will cost me $21 to replace (1/5 the cost of the original drive). They claim there was a "bad batch" of power supplies and that the problem has been fixed. We'll see.UPDATE (August 2009):I have been trying for months to get a new adapter. Every time I call WD tech support, they tell me the same two things:1) They just shipped out the last one2) They will get more in 7-10 daysI don't believe them when they tell me this, because they also tell me these three things:1) I can't preorder a new adapter and have it shipped when they get one in stock2) They... 1/5 Will's Mom (East Coast, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Quick. Compact. No complaints

    I have to say, this drive has surpassed my expectations. It is well made, compact and doesnt come with any bloatware preinstalled on it trying to get me to use their backup solution or anything else.The drive is just that. A drive. A quick drive with a lot of space.First and foremost I was shocked at how small it was. It is the first portable hard drive I've owned, and I was pleased with the fact that it can fit in the small zip top pocket on my computer backpack that was designed to hold a mouse, and still have room for that mouse. On top of that, if I really needed to, I could stick it in my pocket. It really is that slim.The build quality is top notch, the case doesnt creak or rattle, its smooth to the touch without being so slick that you'd drop it, and it has nice rubber feet to prevent rattling during drive access when it is sitting on your desk.The drive itself is very quick, I managed to transfer a 2 gigabyte ISO file to it... 5/5 Beradon (WI, United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Excellent drive for use with Time Machine (OS X)

    I use this 500 GB drive as a Time Machine with my 2012 Macbook Pro (the 15" with Retina display, simply for reference). I have been very happy with every aspect of its functioning: it is quiet, it runs cool, and the transfer speeds are quite fast (I rarely notice that the 'Time Machine clock' is spinning).As it comes, you need to reformat it for use with a Macintosh computer, but with Disk Utility, this is not a problem, and the drive responds well to being reformatted. I set the drive up with two partitions, one for a drag and drop compatible with Windows, and one for Time Machine. Since the unit is very light, and yet feels safe and sturdy, I've been able to carry it around on occasion with no problems. Of course, it is a portable drive, so this is to be expected!When I first set the drive up as a Time Machine, it needed to transfer approximately 42 GB of data, which took about 25 minutes. This corresponds to a relatively slow transfer rate (on the order of... 5/5 A. Berke (Longmeadow, MA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

Saw a few 'oil smudges' on the case. The receipt came with a sticker.... "Warranty void if removed". I matched the numbers, were the same. BUT... The HDD was "Recertified in Malaysia" I am disappointed with the seller....I haven't checked whether it is working yet, that's why the two stars. Will update after customer service call.Update: After customer service call.Returning it. Never wanted a recertified piece.Kudos to the seller. Good customer service.Amazon has a problem. The condition of the item is not mentioned on the main page. Amazon should really make an effort to put sellers comments on the first page.
