5.0 out of 5 stars Works great as an input to my stereo, January 3, 2016
I have an older stereo with nice speakers that I wanted to stream Pandora music to. Using this and an old ipad it works great.

5.0 out of 5 stars works great to connect my BlackBerry Passport to HDMI display, January 3, 2016
Just the gizmo I needed to connect from the micro USB port on my phone to a HDMI cable. BlackBerry phones run QNX so you can multi-task really easily, this cable let me hook it up to a monitor, along with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and I've got a computer in my pocket.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty useful mount, but not for serious training., December 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Handy, but I don't use it as much as I thought I would. That's mostly a fear that I'll drop my phone while riding, not any digs against this device. I used it for some shorter, (1 hr) rides to track my distance/speed etc. But my phone while it will do all these things, doesn't have the battery power for a full day of training and isn't as weatherproof as a dedicated device. Still if you want to use your phone as a gps, heart rate monitor, speed tracking device, this thing will do the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tool for Julienene cut carrots., December 28, 2015

Totally awesome cutter. I use it for cutting up carrots as a replacement for noodles, along with a spiralizer cut up zucchini. Sharp as heck, keep the plastic guard for storing it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy peasy spiralizer., December 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like it, however, if you are trying to "spiralize" a carrot, it's hard to not waste the carrot. Better is the straight cutter I bought, a Julienne Peeler from Kuhn. I use this to cut up zucchini (middle size) and it was east to do. However it does take some wrist strength, some time, and it leaves a core of about 1/2inch of unused squash.

Pro:
Simple, stores in the drawer with all the other misc sharp things.

Con:
Takes time to do the cuts, and doesn't to things like carrots well.

5.0 out of 5 stars No dime store western here!, December 21, 2015
Amazing stories of a real Frontier man. Kit Carson was incredibly complex and yet one of the few who could track with the Plains Indians. If you like dime westerns, why not read the real thing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh, not your average Bogart film., December 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: We'Re No Angels (1955) (DVD)
For me, it was hard to watch. The dialog is very dated and while I like most of the Bogart films, I couldn't finish this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars But the good news is that everyone is way more alike than ..., December 21, 2015
Well this book throughly destroyed my myth of all noble savages with the reality of the plains tribes. But the good news is that everyone is way more alike than we would like to admit. I'm always searching for books which tell both sides of history, winners and losers and this one seems to to a good job of it. Read it over a long weekend vacation and enjoyed it all.
