1.0 out of 5 stars Boycott Cisco!!!, July 6, 2012
For those that don't know, recently, Cisco rolled out a silent firmware "upgrade" to all devices. As part of the "upgrade", all users were then forced to sign up for a Cisco cloud management account, as the new firmware disabled the ability to locally manage the device. What Cisco didn't openly mention, was that the new cloud management software was logging all web history through the router, and that every web page you looked at was being logged off site. Additionally, according to the new terms of the forced "update", Cisco could close your cloud account, thus rending your router useless, if any user on the router ever looked at pornography, or any obscene sites, which was up to Cisco to determine. Yes, that is right, they took over everyone's router, and then decided to dictate what the end user looks at. Clearly Cisco is a shady company that can't be trusted, and thus I would encourage everyone to boycott all Cisco products. We need to send them a message that this type of behavior is unacceptable. Search for the Ars Technica article tilted "Freeing your router from Cisco's anti-porn, pro-copyright cloud service" for more information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for consumer photo based uses, May 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This works great on my D3000, even for RAW files. My tests showed my 16GB copy got 11.6MB a sec for write speeds, and 17.1MB a sec for read speeds. For larger files, such as RAW files from the D800, you might have problems, but with consumer grade equipment, you will be fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should watch this., February 9, 2012
This is an excellent film that shows just how terrible Wal-Mart really is. I would encourage everyone to watch this, just to see what you are enabling when you shop at the store.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great machine., January 21, 2012
Maybe my unit is just lucky, but this has been an excellent snow blower. As said by others, this blower has trouble with slushy snow, but for regular snow, it can't be stopped. Last year in Chicago one storm brought over 20 inches of snow, and even with the box on this being only 16 inches tall, I wasn't even slowed down. At the end of my driveway the snow pile measured almost 40 inches tall, and this still didn't have a problem. I of course couldn't go at full speed, and had to move the blower up and down to allow the blades to eat at the pile, but considering the size, I have no complaints. See the image of my green snowblower doing my sidewalk with an even larger pile. After three seasons of blowing, I have only had to replace one belt that snapped on this.

LG W2343T-PF 23-Inch Class Widescreen LCD Monitor (Gloss Black)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good- with one unusual minor issue., December 5, 2011
Overall this is a fine monitor for the price. The picture quality is good and colors are also vibrant. The only issue with this, which is only going to effect a few people, is that for whatever reason the monitor emits significant radio interference. If I place my 800mhz radio within about four feet of the monitor I get huge amounts of static on the radio. If I turn off the monitor the static immediately goes away. If you have any sort of radio or RF sensitive equipment this would not be a good choice. I have never experienced this with any other monitor, so this is certainly not a common issue with computer displays.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally ridiculous., June 20, 2011
I really don't know how anyone over the age of five could actually believe this stupidity. There are so many totally unrealistic things written in here I honestly can't remember them all. It is a real shame the book wasn't written about the true story of the facility and its employees. Some of them are getting older and their story's may never have a change to be told. I also honestly don't know who is stupider, the author, or the readers who gave this a good review... Watching the abc interview with the author of this abomination would be a good start for them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Christian propaganda, February 4, 2010
I was looking for a science book not a bible.... This book has way to many unscientific things thrown in just to be godly. For example when talking about how we have made cures for things the line "God created men with the capacity to reason and to do scientific research" had to be thrown in to explain why we found the cures. Other things are stupid too like how they say "success in arriving at correct conclusions unmixed with error requires a disciplined mind guided by gods work". I would highly recommend a book that doesn't have the author putting his personal beliefs in at every possible opportunity and that just has real unbiased facts.
