5.0 out of 5 stars A book that gets to the root of the "Matter", October 2, 2014
This review is from: Relevance: Matter More (Hardcover)
I've put this book next to my coveted copy of Stephen Covey's "7 Habits of highly effective people".

Why? Because this book gets to the root of the matter better than any other book on business success that I've ever read. That "matter" is people, and what happens when atmospheres are created that promote the welfare of others. While other books on success deal with current issues of the day, Relevance reaches beyond current trends and teaches us how to embrace a life of authenticity through an enjoyable jaunt through the life experiences of Styrlund and Hayes. Historical notes are mixed with comedic stories and notable teachings making this a hard book to put down and one to truly learn from. Styrlund and Hayes are masterful storytellers while Deegan adds the finesse through smartly written text. This should be a staple in every library for those interested in how to "Matter More".

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Girlfriend EVER !!!, April 28, 2013
Lexmark Genesis; The coolest name for the worst printer ever. Don't let the slick facade fool you into thinking it's going to be spectacular piece of equipment as it is anything but that. Everything from setting up the printer to getting it to work was a hassle. The wireless connection is laughably intermittent even though the printer was only 4 ft from the computer! If you don't print often, be prepared to clean the ink cartridges every time as they dry and don't work - usually right when you need it to. Who has time to think about whether your ink cartridges are dried up or not when doing office work? BTW, ink cartridges are pricey and this thing eats up ink like a hungry hungry hippo!

Oh, did I mention that the printer has a mid of it's own and would decide to do routine start ups and shut downs without being prompted? To add to the insult, when I was able to get the printer to actually work (about 30% of the time), the print quality was nothing special. This printer is like one of those super hot girlfriends who aren't good at anything other than looking pretty. As it stood, useless, the Lexmark Genesis was becoming an oversized paperweight -something I didn't need cluttering my desk top; so I threw it out the window of a 3rd story building to watch it smash into pieces below - which oddly gave me a good feeling since all this printer did for me was cause headaches.

Beware, do not buy, whoever designed this piece of crap at Lexmark hopefully got fired!

3.0 out of 5 stars Style trumps Function, September 25, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
To be honest,...this really isn't a wrist watch that is perfunctory; i.e.- to easily tell what the time is. It is a fashion watch, and as fashion goes,..it's incredibly cool in appearance and gets tons of compliments but yes, you might be suffering if you want to be able to tell time easily from your watch. The concept of how to read the time is ingenious, but the actual ability to do this in real life circumstances is hard as you have to adjust the watch in the right light to be able to read the watch. With the LED display, it is not easy to read the larger numerals that depict the hours, but the minutes are easy to read as the display "bars" move around the dial. I usually guess at the hour, but know the minute increments easily.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh,....it's okay., August 2, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I received this watch and um,....let's just say: it's not worth the suggested retail price of $235.00 that Invicta has for it. The photo of the watch is more exciting than the actual timepiece itself. Although the colour is nicer than most garish yellow watches, it reeks of cheapness from the dull aluminum bezel and frame to the cheapie synthetic band. The weight of the actual timepiece also gives away it's inferior nature - it's lighter than a feather which tells me the insides are made of inexpensive materials.

What I will say that, if you're looking for a sporty colourful cheap watch to bang around, then this might be okay. I haven't had it long enough to test it out during rigorous activity so I can't say if this watch is up for the task or not. I'm still wondering if the $90.00 I paid is too much, but I will be able to tell in no time. I just expected more form a well known watch company than what I got.
