5.0 out of 5 stars Works like original, amazing Customer service., December 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Product:
The build is great and the wire profile is similar to the OEM cable. The usb sync with iTunes works flawlessly and there is no noticeable difference in the charge time and sync speed between this cable and OEM. Also the connector is reversible. I am able to sync the iPhone 5 with my car audio and continue to stream podcasts and Pandora. (Btw, podcasts app is a debacle only eclipsed by issues with Maps). Yes, the fit is slightly more snug than the original cable which makes the cable useful in the car.

Customer service:
My initial order was reported as delivered but never arrived at my apartment complex. I contacted the seller and their customer service was prompt and courteous. They were willing to ship it again once I confirmed the shipping address. The packaging was excellent and, from now on, Boxwave Corp is my preferred vendor. Kudos to Boxwave's customer service. I am duly impressed.

It goes over the life cycle of a PE fund, various roles of employees and the 2/20 income model. It goes over the traditional and non-traditional routes of breaking into PE industry. The book has good and specific recommendations to start early in the college for people who know they want to work in PE.

The Case Studies at the end of each chapter illuminate the importance of early planning, hard work and networking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, functional and product is made locally, September 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was looking for a solution to use the keyboard and the trackpad to control my HTPC. Bluefin has a simple design and provides firm background to use the trackpad on almost any surface. Access to power button is a bit cumbersome, but I have not noticed any significant increase in battery usage after using Bluefin. As the keyboard and the trackpad fit snugly into the Bluefin, it might be a bit of a hassle to get them out. Otherwise, the product delivers what it promises without adding too much weight.

1.0 out of 5 stars Empty than a empty jar., September 7, 2012
The ExpendablesWOW! Never thought a collection of 80s action stars will work in a mindless orgy of CGIs. So much unrealized potential. This could be an EPIC action movie apart from the lack of a credible plot or believable action sequence.

5.0 out of 5 stars In use since May 2008, January 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this mount for Garmin Nuvi to use in rental cars and also to avoid the attraction of car thieves. I travel extensively and have used this mount in various cars and terrain. It has a good grip and does a good job of holding the gps in position. Obviously it cannot override the laws of physics and a sudden deceleration will cause it to slide back. One important thing is to realize that higher the surface area of the mount's base is in contact with the car, higher is the mount's stability. If one/more pads of the mount are bent, you will notice that it's easier for the mount to slip. My advice is to always pack the mount in such a way that the pads don't bend. This will decrease the likelihood that the mount and gps will become a dangerous projectile on sudden braking at high speeds.

2.0 out of 5 stars The book extols an effective methodology but..., January 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros
The book mentions an effective template for Analysis of an Issue and Analysis of Argument.
There are 15 questions covering all the principal verbal content areas. The problems are relatively easy.

Cons:
1. The book has the complete list of AWA essays which are easily available as pdf download at [...] I cannot comprehend the need to unnecessarily repeat the whole list, when an electronic copy exists
2. Though the methodology in the book appears to be very effective, there are only 2 sample essays in the book. I understand most of the programs don't give a serious consideration to the score but 10 - 20 samples for each section will provide the reader with a better understanding of the methodology and its effective application.

Having looked at other books and online resources (free and paid), it's hard to recommend this book. A simple Google search provides more effective templates and resources for AWA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arrived within 24 hours of ordering, October 10, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered these cards in preparation for the upcoming Holiday season. Placing the order was a breeze. I had ordered the generic gift card. My order was shipped by UPS next day air and it arrived as promised. Each envelope had the gift card attached to generic greeting card and another envelope to mail the greeting card. I did redeem some of the cards and the balance was immediately credited to my amazon account. Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase and will likely buy this again.
