4.0 out of 5 stars Peace of mind, April 24, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Heavy duty protection for day to day activities. It is a white stick and easily disappears upon application. It also thins out on heat.

It is advertised as a 24 hour protection. Just like most deodorant based on aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex, it takes multiple soap rubs to remove.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Tasty and yummy just like your typical gummy bears. Kids need to be responsible or supervised lest they will eat them all. You cannot tell it is sugar-free.

Just a bit disappointed with the shape of the gummies. There is only one shape. They are one big circle with two little circles as ears. Maybe I am just expecting more considering it is a Disney character.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good size bottle of aromatic and soothing oil, April 24, 2014
Review for the Energize Citrus-Ginger bath oil -

This is a good size bottle of bath oil. I pour a few squirts on the tub and it adds some nice soothing scent on the hot water. I didn't have to put lotion anymore as the oil gives me the same treatment on my skin. Smooth with a subtle smell.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best home all-in-one printer I own to date, April 23, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Canon MX532 is an al-in-one inkjet color printer. If you need a printer at home, it is just practical to get one that can do everything. The MX532 can print, scan, copy and send fax.

The most important to me is to print from my mobile devices. I store most of my documents in the cloud and the ability to print from my iPad, phone and laptop is now a necessity. The MX532 can also print directly from Flickr, Facebook, etc. if that matters anything to you. This is also the quietest printer I ever had.

Wifi:
Where is the uppercase and numeric characters?

I never done the WPS way and always configure it the standard way. It defaults to WPS configuration first so I had to canceI to make the printer look for an access point. Once I found my SSID, I started typing my password. The manual didn’t say clear how to input uppercase and number. I keep pressing the key hoping it will cycle from lowercase to uppercase and then numbers. It didn’t work that way. You have to press the asterisk once to switch it to uppercase and then press asterisk again to do the numbers.

Initially, my problem with the older MX522 is that sometimes I lose connection to the printer. I found out that when this happens I was not using the right SSID. I have a guess WiFI network and sometimes my iPad or iPhone automatically connects to the Guess instead of the main WiFi network. The simple solution is to connect to the right SSID. Rarely, but it happens too that I am on the right SSID but my device cannot find the printer. Turning off and turning on the printer solves the problem.

Airprint:
My Macbook Air and IOS devices immediately found the printer. Now I have a selection of 520 or 530 series. Printing emails and pics is a cinch.

Copier:
Making copies is even easier. Just put it face down on the glass and press either black or color.

Quick specs:
- duplex printing
- biggest paper size - legal
- ink - PG-240 black & CL-241 color
- Windows and Mac
- paper capacity - 100 Sheets /30 sheets on Auto Document Feeder

5.0 out of 5 stars Smarter than Knightrider - and less annoying, April 23, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length:: 2:34 Mins

This could be the most intelligent toy I got so far. It combines AI and robotics. It is a video game and a physical toy at the same time.

Setup:
It may be daunting at the beginning. Opening the box and thinking that you have to deal with a super sophisticated electronic toy, download and learn a special app and the overall learning curve. Actually it is just downloading the app to IOS device and all it takes is about 5 minutes to start racing. The app tells you in real time how to set up and play. (It won't work on older devices like iPad 2; basically your IOS device should be an iPhone4S and later.) In about 15 minutes, my kids got the hang of it and start upgrading their cars' weapons and engines in no time.

Charging:
The box came with two cars plus a bonus red expansion car, "Rho". Immediately I plugged it to the wall so it will be ready by the time I read the manual. They all have charges out of the box so it only took about 3 minutes to fully charge all of them. Each car have their own bubble case and the bubble is a charger. You plug the bubble into the AC adapter with three USB leads. In short you can plug three bubbles/cars all at the same time. It will take about 8-11 minutes to fully charge an empty car and it will run for approximately 15-20 minutes. The car is fully charged when the LED turns to steady green. Thereafter, it will automatically switch to trickle charge.

App:
The app is free, just type Anki Drive on the Appstore. Once installed, it will tell you step by step how to play the game, name your car and do the upgrades later on. You go to the Garage on the app to customize your car. At the beginning you don't have enough money to purchase upgrades. You get money through playing. The higher your place is, the more money is awarded to you that you can spend on your car.

Maintenance:
It is important to maintain the track and the tires to be clean all the time. Do not step on the track and do not lay your car on dusty carpets, or any dusty surface or it will lose traction. The Anki kit also comes with a tire cleaner.

Do not fold the mat and avoid damaging the printed side. The mat has special elements that the car need to know where it is. Always roll the mat on the included tube.

Gameplay:
You can play up to maximum of 4 cars on the track. You can choose 15, 30 or 45 laps. We usually do 30 or 45 laps as the cars can go around 15 laps pretty fast. If you play solo against the AI, you can choose difficulty level. You can control you car by tilting the iPad. On your control panel are speed and available weapons. If an opposing player hit you with her weapon, your car will be disabled for a few seconds and lose precious time. Basically, you can also compare it to a laser tag. Whoever complete the number of laps first, wins.

It just amazing how the cars respond to its AI. They are very small but with a brain of a sophisticated computer. They can run reverse, navigate through the track by itself without getting out of bounds unless being attacked. They can go in circles, idle, accelerate, and more.

Cons:
So far, the frustrating thing is to run out of juice while in the middle of the race. You'll get a warning that you are having low batt, but it just takes a minute from the warning before it dies and get thrown out of the race. When that happens, all your potential money to be gained on that race is gone - same goes to all the participating players in that race. No matter if it is only one player ran out of juice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real deal, April 23, 2014
Length:: --:-- Mins

Titan's paracord is built to comply with military standard MIL-C-5040H. Originally used for, you guess it - parachutes. Now it is like an all-purpose cord made of nylon that is used in almost anything you need a heavy duty string. Great for securing luggage on your car, securing grills and furniture on your deck on a windy day, boat, on your boat, camping, or even as clothesline. Also tough against the elements as it is weatherproof.

This paracord is Type three which is rated for 550 lbs. The only thing stronger is type IV rated for 750 lbs which is rare.

The now popular product paracord bracelet is designed to be untangled in case of emergencies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made specially for shocks, April 23, 2014
Length:: 0:53 Mins

This is a nice portable pump that can be attached to the bike and can travel with you wherever you go (unfortunately there is no clear instruction on how to install to your bike). It is a 2-in-1 pump for the shocks (if your bike has a pneumatic type) and for tires. The pump has 2 modes, high pressure and high volume. This can be adjusted on he tip of the handle - Hi-P or Hi-V. You will generally use high pressure for the shocks as it gets really tough to pump on higher psi.

It has a built-in gauge which shows both the psi and bars. If you need to get some of the air out, the red button is an easy way to reduce some of the pressure. The hose can rotate 360 degrees - very convenient and useful when your hands have little tight spaces to work on.

The pump is great for shocks but you will find it a bit cumbersome if you just need it for your tires. Beto also makes high volume pumps specially made for tires.

Aqua Spa Energize Body Creme, 9 Ounce
Aqua Spa Energize Body Creme, 9 Ounce
Price: $9.65

4.0 out of 5 stars Silky smooth, April 22, 2014
Body cream is just a fancier word for body lotion. Aqua Spa has 3 scents, Citrus+Ginger labeled as Energize, Eucalyptus+Mint labeled as Soothe and Lavender+Chamomile labeled as Relax. I like this Energize scent. My wife likes it too although she said it is more of a masculine smell.

Sticky the first few seconds you apply it but you feel silky smooth on the skin after it gets absorbed.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first choice of light for my car's glove compartment, April 21, 2014
Length:: 1:28 Mins

This is the perfect flashlight to keep in your car. It has so many features that MyGyver would want one. It is a flashlight, a lantern, emergency car window breaker and a cellphone charger. It is also waterproof.

What's included in the box?
- LED flashlight
- (1) 2,200 mAh 3.7V 18650 battery
- Window tip
- Rubber cap for the window breaker
- Light diffuser
- MicroUSB cable

Light:
It uses a 3.7V 18650 battery which drives the LED to fire up 220 lumens. Not extremely bright but bright enough to trounce most double AA flashlights. The light diffuser cap is my favorite; it does an amazing job producing smooth and very even light. This makes it great for camping, fishing, reading in bed or in your car, or anywhere that you need a mini lantern. You can hang it with the lanyard or just prop it standing on any flat surface.

Light modes:
The light cycles through different modes by half-pressing the power button. The modes are 1) bright 100%, 2) medium 50%, 3) dim 15%, 4) fast strobe, and 5) SOS

Charger:
You can charge the battery in the flashlight on any USB power adapter in your house, or on a PC. For a full charge, it can sufficiently juice up my iPhone5 for one complete charge. When charging the flashlight, red means in progress, and green means fully charged.

Window breaker:
For emergency situation, the solid metal tip can be screwed into the other end of the flashlight and used to smash your car's window in case you get trapped. In fact it should be permanently attached to the flashlight if use it as your car's dedicated flashlight. Nice that they provided a silicon rubber cap to prevent accidental banging to your windows and scratching your car for just day to day regular use.

Cons:
The only improvement I can think of is to use reliable and well-known brands of 18650 batteries like Panasonic or Samsung. Otherwise, I have nothing but love for this multi-use flashlight.

4.0 out of 5 stars High powered with low profile design, April 20, 2014
Length:: 0:32 Mins

The Maxboost car USB charger is a high power low profile 2-port charger. The upper slot is rated at 2.4A and is optimized for Apple devices and the 2.0A is for Androids. The total power for this charger is 22W. The charger gives you a nice bluish glow when powered up.

Stylish with shiny carbon fiber-look (I got the black version), you won't see much of it when plugged in with its minimalistic design.

Cons:
The labels are so inconspicuous that there is no telling which port is 2.4A and which port is 2.0A. Just remember that the top slot (closer to the Maxboost name/logo) is for Apple and the higher rated one.
