2.0 out of 5 stars Good Idea, Poor Execution., March 31, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great idea for a book, but it really lacked in the execution department. Too much of the book was unbelievable and the author did not do enough to place readers within the universe of novel.

Fantasy or Science Fiction falls apart if the author does not convince the reader to step into the same world and adopt those rules. In this case, I never got close to stepping in. Some of the things didn't make sense (viruses transmitted via calls ??) and some of them I just did not care about.

Good idea, but hard to recommend. I found it hard to finish . . .

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My one year old loves it. Healthy, good ingredients, easy to eat from pouch, and he is always looking for more after he finishes. If you are looking for quality baby food in a easy to use pouch - buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, Very Expensive, March 31, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I don't use a stylus very often, so it is harder for me to appreciate the fine point and precision on this one. That said, there is an immediate difference to the clunky, crayon-sized stylus to this one. You will feel like you are actually using a real pen and writing. It works great and is far and away better than the others I have tried.

That said . . . It's about 15x more expensive. If you use a stylus all the time on your iPad and really need to take notes, spend the money and buy this. Otherwise, keep with the cheap ones . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Very cool, my wife likes it, March 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My wife enjoys swewing gifts for friends and family, so this review is based on her opinion more than mine. She enjoyed this book because:

It had some very unique ideas
Great 'look' to the toys
Easy to use for anyone with moderate skill

Very unique toy ideas - so far this one is a big hit.

Highly Recommended.


Edison and the Rise of Innovation

5.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, Great execution, March 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a beautiful book, perfect for a gift or for a book in your personal library to display. Rather than a biography, this book focuses on Edison's inventions for the most part, with smaller focus on his life and the processes he used.

The amount of inventions that Edison came up with is staggering, and this book picks the best of them to expand on. I knew very little about Edison before reading it, but left with a new appreciation for it. My favorite chapter was on Motion Pictures and his contribution, but they were all good. This is more than just a book - its a labor of love and a great read.

Highly Recommended. Looks like one of those coffee table books you buy but never read, except this one actually has some great content as well as beautiful artwork and pictures.

3.0 out of 5 stars One Trick Pony, March 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book has some good information in it that will serve you well, but its too long for the subject and does not offer enough value to warrant a purchase. It could have been summed up in a much shorter article, or served as a chapter or two in a broader book, but there's not much here to build on.

If someone asked me for a recommendation because they are too busy, I would point them towards The Four-Hour Workweek. More practical information and ideas, and its a broader book.

Good idea, well executed, but too narrow. Would find it hard to recommend to someone over other similar books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Eh . . ., March 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Not much here. I would not call this faux leather. Maybe you could call it hard cardboard with covered in a faux leather color . . .

Offers almost zero protection.

Doesn't look very good - mine already had a chip in the 'finish'.

Not well made.

Skip it - if you bought an iPad, spring for a case that's a little nicer than this. It won't offer you any protection other than keeping scratches away from the screen and it does not look great . . .

Not recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it, but . . ., March 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Good case, perfect for what I do most of the time with my iPad (show farm & ranch real estate).

But . . . missing a couple of features that would have made it great.

- I wish it had the ability to lock in position. The only thing keeping it open is the rubber resistance on the surface, won't lock open.

- I hate the folio cases when you are trying to take pictures or video. Would be great if it could lock in position open and had a hole or glass for the camera to see through on cover. Awkward as is.

Very secure, 15 screws to lock it in, great case.

Recommended.

Coast FX412 Frame Lock Folding Knife 4-Inch Blade

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, Large Knife - - Doesn't Lock, March 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a good knife, but not a great one.

Pros:

Good weight, not too heavy
Looks good - faux wood is fine, blade is nice
Sharp
Safe to carry in pocket closed - won't open on you

Cons:

Biggest con - won't lock properly. It will lock at times, but I have to use two hands to put it in place and the its not a 'secure' lock - wouldn't want to risk doing anything rigorous with it and have the blade come down.
Can't open one handed

Overall, very big nice-looking knife for the money, but doesn't lock properly. Maybe it was a bad run . . . if you are looking for a cheap knife, might be worth the risk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool, the real thing, February 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a really well made knife, easy to carry around in your wallet. Makes a great gift, and its also an excellent knife to get someone who does not want to carry around a pocketknife, just in case. Very handy.

Also --- I would highly recommend paying a little extra and getting it from a reputable dealer. I bought two and was happy with it, turned out to be the real thing. Muzitao was the dealer, Amazon fulfilled order (Prime).
