Sparkle Paper Towel with Thirst Pockets, 6 Count
Sparkle Paper Towel with Thirst Pockets, 6 Count
Price: $5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, just right for regular household, January 31, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Despite being thinner sheets than Bounty, these are still work horses. I like the size of the sheet-not too small or to big, and perfect for projects around the house. I was surprised that when I cleaned the windows, and wiped a dried food spill off the floor, they didn't tear. For liquid spills it wicks up the liquid pretty quickly, instead of sloshing the liquid around. The roll lasts a long time in our house, and we have 2 cats. The decor is also minimalistic, and I was not bothered by the small amount of blue. Eventhough these are pretty much $1/roll, these are infinitely better than very cheap paper towels which rip, not standing up to every-day jobs. We like these better than Brawny (too wimpy). Bounty is very good for cleaning up major messes, but these provide a nice balance of quality and quantity for the amount of spills we tend to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy snack alternative for indoor cats, January 21, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Our one cat really likes these and comes immediately when she hears the bag crinkle. The other does not like them, but she does not like most treats. We generally try to eat as organically and healthy as possible, and try to incorporate this into our cats' health as well. The first ingredient is salmon, and it states that it has no corn, soy or wheat. Keeping weight down on indoor cats (naturally more sedentary) is challenging, but this is a nice, lean alternative to other treats which have far more fillers. Despite being made out of salmon, they do not have an overwhelmingly fishy smell, which is a plus. The texture is more of a soft chew, not a hard kernel. We've also purchased other treats that were 'freeze-dried' and the cats did not like them as much as these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Multi-use carrier can be used as child grows, January 21, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really like that this product can transform from baby to toddler carrier because you can continue to use the product while the child grows. I also appreciate that it is organic since kids put everything in their mouth-one reduced worry. It's also a very nice color and texture of the fabric. It's a soft, comfortable fabric, and not irritating to skin. I also liked that the shoulder straps had a lot of padding, with similar quality to a high-quality book bag. It came with picture instructions, which is one of the reasons I could not give it 5 stars.

The pictures seemed simple, but in actuality it took a bit more than 'common sense' to figure it out. It turns out that there are two plastic clips in the front that adjust up and down, which was not clear in the pictures. Once I figured that out, the item was much more comfortable and adjustable. It's 100% cotton and it can go in the washing machine (just watch the clips on agitator). It also has a an adjustable hood to go over the baby when sleeping. It has a convenient zipper pocket as well.

I used the item on a 30 lb toddler. She enjoyed the ride. For me, the carrier was very comfortable. The description says it can hold up to 45 pounds, so it's just a matter of whether or not you feel comfortable carrying such a weight on your back/chest The item can be used to carry a child on your back, chest or hip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, roomy shelf for multiple showering/bathing products, needs some smaller compartments, December 27, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
By looking at the picture you would not think this is as wide as it actually is. The suction cups are really firm and sturdy, and very easy to adhere to surface. They are about 3 inches in diameter, so this item seems to work better if you have larger titles. You can slide the suction cups up to line up with the tiles, which is a nice feature. Despite the weight on the shelf (we have numerous bottles of various sizes and weights), it has not slid down. The look is clean and sleek, and the drainage areas are large. The item is made from stainless steel and plastic, so rust is not a concern. Unlike smaller shelves, this one is nice and roomy and allows multiple sets of shampoos and conditioners to be easily accessible. The reason it does not get all 5 stars is that there are no compartments to store smaller items, like razors. It also does not have hooks (we added those for loofa sponges, etc).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent open world first person shooter!, December 21, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If you like open-world first person shooters, you're going to just love Far Cry 4. The folks that bring us Far Cry 4; Ubisoft have a particular way of doing things. Terrain that is very laid out, an exotic setting, beautiful environments, and a multitude of tasks to perform within it’s realm. Some things are very straight forward, such as climbing a tower to provide more open map vision or capturing an outpost to enable fast travel to another part of the map. Then there is a plethora of mini-games or side missions to choose from to keep you busy between major campaign assignments.

This is a game that offers unrestricted freedom as a given. There’s a story securing the action, but the best moments in Far Cry 4 are those that players create for themselves - like riding an elephant through an enemy outpost or escaping from insurmountable odds by leaping off a cliff and deploying a wingsuit. Far Cry 4 has a decent plot, sure, but its biggest strength is the fact that, for the most part, it doesn’t get in the way of players experimenting.

These kind of mini-missions can keep you endlessly occupied until you are helping out a villager accomplish a certain task or racing against the clock for a time trial mission of quad bike racing. Far Cry 4 accomplishes the one goal games have been trying to do for years; experience your own story the way that you want it.

I really liked the extra customization of the loadouts and all of the skill trees, crafting more powerful weapons and looting that you can do just about everywhere you go. There is a huge amount of activities that can be performed in Kyrat.

Far Cry 4’s main antagonist, Pagan Min, is one of my favorites in video game history. Min is incredibly sarcastic, yet can snap at the blink of an eye revealing his darker, deadlier side. There are so many things to do in Kyrat, anything from rescuing hostages to destroying enemy propaganda, to spending hours hunting down animals to upgrading your equipment.

While playing on the PS4 I was just stunned at the level of detail of it’s next-gen graphics, cinematics, full action sequences, storyline and a very enthralling experience with animals and places that will keep one entertained for hours (upon hours) for some. The dynamics of the gameplay itself feel very alive and immersive. Also the map is so huge that you can have something to do everywhere you go, hence open-world.

Music, ambience, sound effects and acting is exceptional and leaves nothing to be desired. Surround sound is extremely accurate. At one point I was across the street from a gun fight and the stray bullets that were whizzing by me had my side and rear surround speakers quite active making me immediately looking over my shoulder and asking myself “was that coming from my speakers” and duck for cover after a few close calls. Shouldering a fully automatic AK-47 and unloading a clip is even an entertaining experience on it’s own when firing it, while off to the right side speakers in my room I hear my expended bullet casings hitting the ground. Very impressive to say the least.

As far as replay value is concerned, yeah I believe so, Far Cry 4 has excellent replay value. The reason I say that is because of it’s endless mini-missions it has and can be experienced in a whole new light upon a second play session.

The only thing I didn’t like at all was the save system, it is horrible. Far Cry 4 needs quicksaves, not checkpoint saves which is a poor choice for an open world game in my opinion. So much for saving your progress if you're off on a mini-mission and you die and then you respawn at the start of a campaign mission you started some time back. So what has happened to all those mini-missions that I just finished - are they gone and every one of them have to be redone? I didn’t venture off to find out but if so that’s not good.

The exordium to Far Cry 4 gives you the run through of how to run, jump and shoot, the usual stuff, but it was during this period that I ran into my first issue with the game. Ubisoft decided that as well as mapping your weapon select wheel to the L1 button on the PS4 controller they figured it would a be a good idea to also map the touch pad with the same function. I have large-sized hands, and the PS4 controller doesn’t usually pose an issue but with this feature enabled it caused numerous issues. The slightest brush off the touchpad would result in the weapons wheel popping up rendering all other controls useless, leaving me wandering in a straight line while soldiers riddle me with bullets. Even when the touchpad is disabled once you exit the game and then load it back up the touchpad is re-enabled, even though the settings have it set to off.

All in all a really solid game and an excellent time waster. You’ve done a great job with this game Ubisoft. Can’t wait for any DLC now.

Kensington Wired iPad Keyboard with Lightning Connector (K72447WW)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great full size keyboard, very comfortable with iPad!, December 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The first thing to note, is that, unlike other solutions, this is not a 'case/keyboard' combo. While I knew that before I ordered it, I thought I'd mention, in case that 'combo feature' is important to you. I previously had a combo for the ipad, which was exremely heavy, and a bit prohibitive for quick picture taking and extended 'surfing' or work. This keyboard is bigger than those 'combos', maybe 1/2 size, but much lighter.

It is very comfortable to type on, as it allows you to spread your fingers out a bit more (as opposed to the more 'cramped' and a bit unnatural motion created by smaller keyboards). The cord for this is a nice length, so you could control how far you are away from the ipad. Another nice feature is that it is not necessary to charge the keyboard as it's wired (it uses power from ipad, but not enough to make it prohibitive during my work).

It is not a 'quiet touch' keyboard, but I do like the fact that it's raised on an angle, so you have some wrist support. This has been great for prolonged typing.


Bostitch Dynamo Compact Stapler, Blue (B105R-BLUE)
Bostitch Dynamo Compact Stapler, Blue (B105R-BLUE)
Price: $8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 'multi-function' teacher/office tool!, December 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a teacher's or office worker's dream with a pop of color. It combines many features into one unit. There is an area at that bottom that holds an extra row of staples. This enables you to continue working on 'in-progress' projects, without having to leave frequently to get more staples. To be specific, my wife, as a teacher frequently has to hang up papers and projects on the wall and bulletin boards. This stapler opens up 180 degrees to enable you to push things into the wall. It has a rubber grip so it doesn't slip out of your hands and a staple remover on the back. You can place it on your desk horizontally or vertically to save space as needed, because of the shape of the stapler. There is also a manual pencil sharpener at the rear of the unit, allowing you to avoid yet another 'gizmo' on your desk, and or/searching for them when you need them. I would have given it 5 stars, if it had more power, or a 'one touch' feature. We would consider this a more 'light duty' stapler, as far as the number of sheets to be stapled together, and overall power.

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality, compatible, reliable cable., December 12, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This replaces a shorter cord we had, and once again Belkin delivers an excellent product. We have used this for iPhone 6 plus with no problems. The charges was fast and reliable and no strange 'not compatible' messages as found with some accessories, because this is Apple MFi certified. The quality is excellent and the cord is flexible and an apprpriate length. We have never had any issues with Belkin (AV accessories, and now, phone accessories). Highly recommended.
