Angular 6 for Enterprise-Ready Web Applications: Deliver production-ready and cloud-scale Angular web apps
Angular 6 for Enterprise-Ready Web Applications: Deliver production-ready and cloud-scale Angular web apps
The thing that sets this book apart from other Angular books is the comprehensive advice on how to take an idea from the back of a napkin to deployment.

The book starts with a chapter on how to configure your development environment and integrate build tools and project management tools. Next, Doguhan provides thoughts on how to best work with the business stakeholders to gain a high-level concept of the application's major functions and turn that into a simple set of interactive wireframes. From there, you build a simple local weather app to cover the Angular basics.

Switching gears into a well-defined line-of-business app project, you are shown how to build the walking skeleton of the new application utilizing the powerful Angular Router. This critical step gives you something to put in front of the stakeholders almost immediately. Not only is this very quick business value, but gives you an opportunity to iron out any large architecture-level issues before they become too difficult to manage.

After the walking skeleton, several Angular concepts are covered in-depth as you work on features for the Lemon Mart app. This larger app provides an opportunity to talk about best practices, useful design patterns and potential pitfalls. The last chapters cover how to easily deploy the app to Amazon's cloud using Docker, and how to tie into Google Analytics to give your stakeholders feedback on site performance and user activity.

So, yeah, you'll learn Angular.

You'll also learn so much more that you can use on all of your future web-app efforts, regardless of whether or not you use Angular.

I cannot believe I wasted almost 3 minutes scan over this. This doesn't tell you anything beside buying ETF and promo his other books.

There is nothing wrong with buying ETF, but that is not how you out perform the market. Buying ETF is speculation. If you want to invest, you have to do with cashflow, AKA buying someone that give you cash, like dividend. Yes, 3 to 5% dividend seen little, but if you have it compound and also a gain of 3 to 5% of capital gain over the long run will out perform speculation in general. Unless you happened to bought Google and Apple from a decade ago
When Money Dies: The Nightmare of Deficit Spending, Devaluation, and Hyperinflation in Weimar, Germany
When Money Dies: The Nightmare of Deficit Spending, Devaluation, and Hyperinflation in Weimar, Germany
I got this book in October 2010 based on a recommendation from either BullionVault.com or another website devoted to providing a dissenting view to mainstream economics. It was first published in 1975, just four years after the Nixon administration had severed the last tie between gold and the U.S. dollar by closing the international “gold window” and terminating the right of foreign governments to exchange dollars for gold. At that time the prospect of an American hyperinflation seemed far off, even as inflation was rising fast, and those scratchy old silent-film clips of forlorn Germans pushing wheelbarrowfuls of banknotes to the bakery to buy bread were quaint and unreal-looking.

As I type these words the price of gold is US$1,818 per ounce, an increase of 4400% since 1971, and last week Switzerland, long a bastion of monetary probity, gave up on maintaining the value of its franc and pegged it instead to the moribund Euro, joining the other major currencies in a death-spiral of competitive devaluation. For those aware of what hyperinflation is, the possibility of experiencing it for ourselves is becoming ever more plausible and imminent. Adam Fergusson’s book gives a detailed picture of how hyperinflation—the death of a paper currency—played out in a modern industrial economy in the 1920s. It’s not a pretty sight.

I never knew much about the Weimar hyperinflation, but assumed that it had something to do with the payment of war reparations imposed on Germany by the Treaty of Versailles. And while Fergusson’s topic is not really the cause of the hyperinflation, he does eventually come out and say that war reparations probably had nothing to do with it. Instead we see a fledgling republic facing severe social and economic problems, but whose leadership throughout remains stubbornly timid and ignorant. The leaders of both the government and its central bank, as well as newspaper editors and other leaders of opinion, were almost unanimous in asserting that the inflation had nothing to do with the runaway printing of banknotes, which they saw as an effect rather than as a cause of rocketing prices.

Hyperinflation inflicts severe suffering on almost everyone except those able to profit by making bets on the collapse of the currency. The suffering, though, is very unequally distributed, and the injustice of the whole process is one of its most striking features. With a whole generation of children malnourished, women selling their bodies for a pork chop, and retired civil servants dropping dead on the street from hunger and cold, you also have farmers hoarding bumper crops, unwilling to sell for worthless paper money, and industrialists in a frenzy of factory-building to make use of cheap credit. Some of the best parts of the book are extracts from the journals and letters of housewives describing what they see around them. They witness mob violence and exchange their pianos for potatoes.

In other ways though I found the book to be a dry read, and I felt that it was really addressed to people who were already students of this period of German history and had a grasp of the people and events of that time. The author assumes a knowledge of the time and place that in my case was lacking, which made the reading tougher going. I also found that his style lacked fluency, which made things harder as well. A sentence taken at random: “The uncertainties to which these postponements gave rise in large measure accounted for the wild fluctuations of the mark during the year.” Another writer would have put this is a more readable way.

All of that said, this book was for me very readable because of its relevance to the events unfolding around me in the world. The enormous federal budget deficits in the United States are starting to look like the Weimar deficits, and although printing presses are no longer used to create money, dollars are being created by the trillion—a figure that became familiar in Germany in the early 1920s. When I go shopping I’m struck by how much less my money buys than even a year ago, and I fully expect that prices will only accelerate upward from here.

But does that mean we’re headed for actual hyperinflation? According to writers like James Turk of GoldMoney.com and John Williams of ShadowStats.com, yes we are. Williams, a longtime statistician with the U.S. federal government, thinks it will be in the next year or two.

But are our governments as timid or as deep in denial as the Weimar republic? I’ll leave that question with you. Another thing I’ll leave with you is a favorite quote from another writer, Henry Hazlitt, an American journalist on economics and finance. In 1946 he wrote these words:

"Inflation discourages all prudence and thrift. It encourages squandering, gambling, reckless waste of all kinds. It often makes it more profitable to speculate than to produce. It tears apart the whole fabric of stable economic relationships. Its inexcusable injustices drive men toward desperate remedies. It plants the seeds of fascism and communism. It leads men to demand totalitarian controls. It ends invariably in bitter disillusion and collapse."

If you’re looking for a refutation of Hazlitt’s points, you won’t find it in When Money Dies.
Slaying Goliath: The Passionate Resistance to Privatization and the Fight to Save America's Public Schools
Slaying Goliath: The Passionate Resistance to Privatization and the Fight to Save America's Public Schools
Diane Ravitch’s book is a powerful weapon describing the fight between David, representing the resistors—the advocates of public schools, and the corporate Goliath, the disruptors—advocates of privatized education. I’ve learned a lot from this beautifully written and engaging discussion about the rise and fall of the disruptors and hopeful victory of the resistors. But I missed a satisfactory explanation of the underlying cause of this struggle.

In telling this story Diane Ravitch rightly points out: 1) that the root cause of low performing schools is poverty, and 2) unlike the earlier rich who wanted to reform and improve the public schools, the new wealthy disruptors (Goliaths) don’t trust the public sector which includes “government schools” and they don’t trust local control, so they use philanthropy and the promotion of charter schools as devices to control under the guise of helping and 3) for the disruptors profits are more important than students.

In addition to the above three points Ravitch poses, what I believe the central question of the book on page 140 “Why were the billionaires so eager to open charter schools whose results were not different from those of public schools and for which there was very little demand? Why not put their millions into fighting for better funding for public schools, where the vast majority of students are?” but she never really answers her question. Instead, she left me with inciteful stories of the fight between David and Goliath. I was hoping for an answer that also pointed to the underlying cause of the battle—the economy.

What’s missing in this analysis is the sinister C-word (capitalism) the privatizing, isolating, profit-maximizing engine and creator of vast inequality that sets the stage for the battle between Goliath and David. We need a chapter on the relationship between capitalism and public education. Despite the excellent stories “Slaying Goliath” in uncritically accepting capitalism as the norm will only propose reforms that will eventually fail as did the new deal.

By approaching problems with schooling through an analysis of capitalism resistors will be able to act more effectively in their battle with Goliath, for they will see: 1) where poverty comes from (the class struggle and growing inequality) and 2) how Goliath, in his frenzy for profit and growth considers schooling to be a training ground for compliant workers and consumers 3) why Goliath has grown so powerful and can influence education, the economy, and government through lobbying and control of the media.

Jimi Hendrix: Blues
Jimi Hendrix: Blues
If you want to listen to some of jJimi Hendrix’s best blues and guitar playing ,buy this Album!Jimi Hendrix Blues”
And if your a guitar player buy this book as first of all it is a beautiful book with accurate transcriptions to every song on the JiminHendrix blues album.
This album was released after Hendrix passed away,but the collection of songs is far from his psychedelic work and commercial music , However it is such a great collection of Hendrix blues playing!
If you ever wondered why Jimi Hendrix was ever considered ground breaking the best Guitar player ,well you will understand andget it once you listen to this entire Blues album and it will quickly be your favourite Hendrix album ,Jimi Hendrix Sound is spectacular as their are many slow blues tracks
And believe me this is Hendrix at his best
Be sure to listen at night just before you crash out and really get prepared to be blown away and just think that some of this playing is nearly 50 years old but really stands the test of time(the book that I am supposed to be reviewing has a little story and history I believe with every song
The book also has some great photos and again every song is transcribed for guitar.
It is such a shame Hendrix didn’t concentrate solely on his blues guitar playing as again it is just spectacular listening to this album as I wish he would of recorded many more. Buy this book and the album!!!
Music By Bacharach
Music By Bacharach
Now this one's a keeper, so good that it sits in my car on a semi-permanent basis to help set up my day.

The Bacharach/David collaboration spawned more memorable hits than could possibly fit on a single CD, perhaps even two. Thus my procrastination in purchasing any such CD, as I dawdled on Amazon and at Borders, combing through all variety of offerings to find just the right mix of my own all-time favorites. I still haven't found the perfect mix - probably never will - but this one comes extraordinarily close. ("Promises, Promises" and "Raindrops" didn't make the cut. Nuts.)

The opener, "Don't Make Me Over", was Dionne Warwick's breakout hit with Bacharach/David and ensured a long-running relationship and steady stream of chart-toppers. That slight off-beat hesitation (in a way like Sinatra) makes all the difference in the world. And she's back several tracks later with one of my all-time favorite teen-decade solos, "Walk On By", with those lush Bacharach strings. Jackie DeShannon takes us from bittersweet lyrics to halcyon ones with "What the World Needs Now", which could easily have morphed into an over-the-top saccharine ditty were it created by less gifted hands. "The Look of Love", from Brasil 66, doesn't provide us with the smoky sax of the original version, but instead offers up a delightful, pulsating Latin treatment with great vocals. And then, two back-to-back startlers - a highly stylized, aching rendition of "Anyone Who Had a Heart" by Ronald Isley and an equally agonized confessional from Elvis Costello. To take us down from these two windows into the soul, the producers leave us with the soft, stage-exiting "Windows of the World", a Sixties-flavored instrumental if there ever was one.

I stumbled upon this CD while placing an order at the Starbucks on the mezzanine of the U.S. Steel headquarters in Pittsburgh, carefully examined its contents, and snatched it up. There were only two left. Don't miss out on Amazon.
Best Of, Vol. 1
Best Of, Vol. 1
This album cuts right to the heart of the thorny question: "Can you be a true fan of an artist if you are primarily a fan of their greatest hits compilations?" Much as it hurts me to say this, my gut has always told me the answer is "no". Why does it hurt so much to arrive at this answer? First, I absolutely adore Creedence Clearwater Revival's Chronicle Volume I - it has to be one of my top 10 all-time favorite albums. But since I don't love any of CCR's "real" albums, I'm not a true fan of CCR according to my rigid standards for true fandom. It pisses me off to have to admit that. My second reason involves my girlfriend. She is hopelessly devoted to Bob Dylan's imported Best of 1 - I reckon it is her favorite album. And yet, she rarely listens to his other material. I mean, she has several of Dylan's albums, but it is Best of 1 that she returns to time and again. So, according to my standards, she's not a true Dylan fan. Don't get me wrong, she's more than just a casual fan. But a true fan? I fear not. In my opinion and (I suspect) those of several influences from my formative years (Chris S., David F., and Steve M.), a true fan appreciates most of, if not all of, an artist's works. So, I'll keep enjoying my Chronicle and N.G.A. will keep enjoying her Best of 1, but until we develop more complete appreciations of CCR and Dylan, respectively, we simply won't qualify as true fans.
What do I think of Best of 1? That's easy. There are a bunch of amazing songs here and it would be foolish to even consider giving this album less than 5 stars. There's not much I can say about the individual songs that hasn't already been said more eloquently by countless others over the past 30 years. On this one album, you will hear timeless folk music, classic rock, and the roots of "the (alt-country) movement". Heck, Dylan even had a punk attitude long before that genre was born. Simply put, if you don't have any of Dylan's other albums and have at least a passing interest in popular music, this album belongs in your collection.
The Pilgrim's Progress: Positive Action Youth Edition
The Pilgrim's Progress: Positive Action Youth Edition
This is a great story with a picture on every page! It is an allegorical story following the character named Christian. Christian meets lots of people along his way to try to get rid of the burden on his back representing his sin. He cannot remove the burden on his own. Some people lead him astray and some people point him back to the right path towards Jesus and Salvation. Christian eventually reaches the cross and gives his life to Jesus. Jesus forgives his sins and the burden falls off his back into a bottomless pit and he is made new with a new identity in Christ! That is only the beginning of the story however and Christian goes on to learn what it means to live a life for God. He also eventually equips himself with the armor of God. It's a great story and one I recommend to every parent with young children! When my mother read this to me at 4 years old I gave my heart to Jesus. When Christian reached the cross I told my mom, "Mommy I want to give my burden to jesus too!" I pray this story will continue to share the gospel with many more people for years to come!
A Haunting in Saginaw, Michigan
A Haunting in Saginaw, Michigan
This is another cookie-cutter ghost hunting show, except it seems more staged than others. The "Prozac" nickname in the and the thunder sound effect throughout the video got a bit annoying. They start their investigation by turning the lights out - no reason for this and completely done for the spooky ambiance. In the first few minutes, it is apparent they don't use any controls against false-positive results, and they have an obvious bias that ghosts exist and can do a whole bunch of magical stuff. Their EVP sessions do nothing to further understand what they might be experiencing...and "Prozak" seems to think he gets amazing EVPs and has some kind of authority superpower to make ghosts leave the house. The three video clips (frame moving, light fixture, and pool table) in the beginning are horrible...nothing that couldn't be done with fishing line, especially the way the cameras are positioned. The rocking chair moving can also be easily done with fishing line...in fact all of the video "evidence" is shot in a way to make it easy to using fishing line. The door closing video taken by the "resident" seems staged - her reaction is not what would be expected. Their use of K2 meters show they don't understand how they work - K2 meters are single axis, meaning that just pointing it towards a fish tank doesn't get you the full reading. Also, the over-sensitive meters are easily set off....and are not good tools for what this group is attempting to do.
Jane Hawk ( Books 1-3 ) Series Set
Jane Hawk ( Books 1-3 ) Series Set
I have not only read these books, but listened to them every night (all five books). Of all the thriller detective type books, including the Hannibal series, this is by far the best, and the best of Koontz. Also, the science fi in the book is not so much fiction anymore, and it applies even more each day as truth in our screwed up world.
Jane Hawk is a hero that could change the world, in a world where right now, I doubt it can be changed.

Die Geschichte hat mir erst gefallen und ich war fasziniert von Erzählweise und Spannung, so dachte ich, lese ich auch den 2. Roman, nun entpuppt sich am Ende, daß das Ende offen ist und die Romane als Serie geschrieben sind. Das hat mich sehr enttäuscht, in Buch 2 kamen schon viel Wiederholungen, zum Verständnis, aus Buch 1. In Buch 3 werden dann Wiederholungen aus Buch 1 und 2 folgen, für mich wirkt das in die Länge gezogen unglaubwürdig und enttäuschend.

MiCare [15pk] - 1-Panel Urine Drug Test Card Fentanyl (FTY) #MI-WFTY-114
Either A i got a defective batch or B these tests arent accurate at all

Heres why:
I bought these so that a friend of mine could test her son for drugs. She is in the medical field and has never done drugs. She took one of the tests herself first to see how they worked. When hers came back with a positive test we both were alarmed because we both knew she didnt have anything in her system. We then tested the urine of my 14week old puppy whos urine also came back positive we knew something was up, then we tested a glass of plan water which also came back positive, and then a glass of orange juice which also came back positive. I think it is safe to say that every single test no matter what the liquid comes back positive for a substance it doesnt even contain.
The Trader's Dream: The Traders, Book 3
The Trader's Dream: The Traders, Book 3
Like the first two books in this series The Trader's Dream was very engaging and engrossing. This one had a bit more history tied in with the opening of the Suez Canal. I loved reading about the development of relationships, between Maura and the children, then Maura and Hugh and of course, once they reached Australia the relationship between Bram and his newly arrived family members. It was also interesting to see Rory again, and seeing he has a good side to him and isn't as bad a person as he was in the last book. The book felt like an ending to the series, I think it was supposed to be only three books, but I am happy that it will carry on for two more stories because I am not ready to let this characters go just yet.

No hay historia de esta mujer que no me guste, pero invito a cualquiera que lea esta recesión y tenga sus dudas a sumergirse en las Crónicas Angélicas. Merecerá la pena.
Phantasmagoria and Other Poems
Phantasmagoria and Other Poems
Charles Dodgson better known to us all as Lewis Carroll needs no introduction, and here we have a selection of some of his poetry. I should point out that this free kindle edition does have a couple of problems. There is no active table of contents here so if there is a particular poem in this collection that you are a fan of you will have to bookmark it. The other problem we have here is one of presentation in that although everything is here the titles for poems do appear after the line of the previous poem, thus not giving you a line break. I know that this is only a problem with the actual presentation but it does become a bit annoying if you are trying to find a particular piece.

In all though this makes for interesting and fun reading and will probably be enjoyed by many.

The "reparo" - bottom left on the graphic was not legible - I am not noticing that the picture actually shows it this was, and did not notice that before ordering.

I got this product to re-seal a leaky joint on a cistern pipe. This means the cistern needs to be drained to get it done. I didn't want the toilet out of action for 24 h, the time needed for regular silicon sealant to set. Instead, I thought I'd pay more to get a product that would do the job in one hour.
Nowhere in the description does it tell you, but this product actually takes 24h to set. It's on the tube itself. The "one hour" thing is for "indirect water contact" only. I've never heard a shower called THAT. This suggests that it's not even dry enough for an actual shower, just the splashes that occurs whilst showering? Even if I was just sealing a shower, I certainly wouldn't risk anything near the finish until fully dry. Why take the chance? So I spent nearly 4 times as much as for regular silicon for the same actual drying time. Round of applause, Unibond, no thanks.

Overall, this is a good unit. It serves the purpose for which it was intended almost perfectly. It is a little deeper than I expected, so sticks out from the wall a bit more than I had thought/hoped. I should have looked at the dimensions more carefully and done the simple math to see how deep it actually was.

Assembly:
It was "mostly" easy to assemble...meaning that it wasn't very complicated when said and done, but the included instructions weren't the easiest to understand at first. I had to undo a couple of steps as a result of that. So something that should've only taken 20-30 minutes to assemble ended up being about 45 minutes. It inlcuded the allen wrench and open-ended wrench needed to assemble.
I see others have complained about the length of bolts not being accurate. I don't know if the manufacturer changed this up after getting that feedback, but mine had all of the bolts separated and labeled by step, so it made it easy to ensure had the correct bolt with the correct length for each step. I did not have any issues as others reported.
The shelves were a little difficult to get everything lined up, but I found that if you keep things a little lose it will give some slack to move it around in order to get the shelf holes to line up.

Quality:
The casters that came with mine were no where close to what was depicted in either the photos or the video; the actual quality of casters was much lower with it all being hard plastic. That isn't a big issue for me as I don't intend for this to be a mobile unit. I also don't know how well the casters move the unit around, as I only used them to move it over carpet into the corner of the office where it will stay.
It is fairly sturdy when all assembled and everything gets "locked" into place. I was a little nervous as I went along as it didn't seem very sturdy...but when everything got tightened down it is sturdy.
The raising and lowering operation is a bit basic. You can raise it fairly simply, but in order to lower it you have to raise it all they way to the top to take it down. Would've been nice to have a pneumatic lift mechanism....but that would've raised the price.

Overall, it serves it's purpose and matches what I needed.

This mobile has an amazing effect on my son. Actually, when we first got it, it got him too excited because he loved the rotating animals. Soon he got used to the melody and now it helps him fall asleep.

I even user it for the melody when I'm rocking him to sleep near the crib.

I highly recommend this electronic chime over the wind-up one. It lasts about 20 minutes and really helps him fall asleep. The volume is adjustable too.

Pick up some AmazonBasics AAA batteries and you'll be all set!

Shortly after purchasing a 2012 Chevy Volt, the included OEM Voltec charger gave out. Replacement for that part seemed astronomical so I searched for an alternative.
This charger is just that. This cord has some heftiness to it, I can assure you that. Even with that being said, the product is on par with the OEM (if not better). The charge is level 1, so you know what to expect for it, but the space required to keep it near the outlet is far less, not mention you do get quite a bit more length in the cord.
I highly recommend this product. Great value. Great build. The light pattern on the charger is easy to understand. Two thumbs up without question.

With few exceptions, I am very bad at returning things that I should return.

Because of some difficult circumstances, last year (family crisis), we didn't put up our 7 foot tree. In fact, we put up no decorations. So, when Christmas Eve rolled around I felt terrible that we had consciously neglected to decorate. It was then that I declared never-ever again would we neglect Christmas and we would be sure to, at least, set up a tree. We're older with no children in the house but, we have a 100 lb German Shepard puppy who is a whirlwind of energy and trouble, but we love him! So we decided to go with a smaller table top tree, hoping that it might survive the puppy's romper-room antics. This tree seemed to us to be very pretty and we thought it would serve our purpose nicely.

When it arrived ahead of time I took it as a good sign. Upon opening the heavily taped box and pulling it out, I began to wonder if they sent me the correct tree. The tree in the picture looked so full, but, this tree will never look like the picture - no matter how long we spend "fluffing" (pulling the bent and twisted branch clusters apart). The bottom section has hinged main branches, while the top section has no hinges and the main branches have to be BENT down. In addition, I wonder if this tree was jammed back in the box by some other unhappy customer and returned.

Buying from pictures has always been a gamble. Hopefully my warning to you will steer you in a different direction. I learned my lesson with regard to buying trees from a picture. Merry Christmas.... try Home Depot.

Die Philips LatteGo ist im Kern eine umgelabelte Saeco Incanto - nur mit besserem Milchschaumsystem. Die Incanto ist ja bekannt für die Zubereitung von sehr leckerem Espresso und für die Top-Crema. Die Optik und Verarbeitung ist sehr hochwertig, sie sieht richtig gut aus. Die Maschine ist sehr gut durchdacht und übersichtlich. Alle Füllmengen, Getränkestärken und Mahlgrade lassen sich einzeln speichern. So werden jetzt auch unsere überdimensionalen Latte-Gläser richtig voll.
Ich trinke auch gerne mal einen Latte macchiato. Aber die danach erforderlichen Reinigungsorgien bei den bisherigen Kaffevollautomaten selbst wesentlich teurerer Maschinen hatten dazu geführt, dass ich immer seltener Lust darauf hatte. Daher war die LatteGo für mich die erste Wahl.
>> Das LatteGo-Milchschaumsystem besteht aus zwei großen Kunststoffteilen, die Milchschaum produzieren. Damit geht die Reinigung supereinfach im Geschirrspüler. Die Reinigung des Milchbehälters war noch nie so einfach, schnell und bequem.
>> Der Milchschaumbehälter lässt sich wirklich sehr einfach anklicken und abnehmen, ohne auf Schläuche achten zu müssen.
>> Natürlich ist LatteGo nicht leise - aber so laut wie in anderen Beurteilungen geschrieben ist sie nun auch wieder nicht. Anderen Kaffevollautomaten sind vielleicht einen Tick leiser - aber schlürfen auch laut vor sich hin.
>> Der Schaum ist gut - aber natürlich nicht auf Barista-Niveau. Er ist aber völlig ausreichend fest und schaumig. Das nehme ich gerne in Kauf, wenn die sonst aufwendige Reinigung entfällt. Endlich Cappu und Latte mal zwischendurch bedenkenlos zapfen ohne einen Gedanken ans Putzen zu verschwenden :-D
>> Für Espresso-Fans wichtig: die Bezugsmenge kann auf 25 ml pro Espresso heruntergeregelt werden, das ist spitze.
>> Die Schwäche unserer vorherigen DeLonghi war die niedrige Brühtemperatur - selbst bei maximaler Einstellung war mir das zu lau und nur was für Schwarz-Soforttrinker. Die Lattego hingegen kann wirklich megaheiß zubereiten, wenn man das wünscht.
>> Ansonsten gibt es Spül-, Entkalk- und Reinigungsprogramme, wie es sich gehört. Die Brühgruppe ist ordentlich entnehmbar und leicht zu reinigen.
>> Wer keine Lust auf Entkalken hat, nutzt den Wasserfilter für ca. 5000 Tassen, der im Nachkauf ca. 12€ kostet. Es gibt aber auch 1kg-Nachfüllpacks, damit wird es dann wesentlich billiger.

Fazit: von mir gibt es eine absolute Kaufempfehlung. Philips LatteGo EP5333/10 ist für mich der Preis-Leistungssieger bei Kaffevollautomaten.
