1.0 out of 5 stars Quicken for Mac 2016 is NOT QUICKEN., January 18, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Like many others, I have been a satisfied Quicken Windows user for 10+ years. I switched to a Mac several years ago and have used both Parallels and now Fusion to run QW. But, in spite of all of the negative reviews, I decided to give Quicken for Mac a try. After converting my files and using the product, I was very disappointed (duh!).

But I figured out the problem. Quicken for Mac IS NOT Quicken. It should be called something like Intuit Personal Financial Software for Mac. The two products are completely different and have different approaches to personal financial management. Intuit did what many companies have done and that is ... take the product name of a successful product and use it for an completely different product in order to "piggy back" off of the QW version and make sales. The result: anger, frustration and disappointment by QW users.

Reports is the best example of the different approaches to financial management. QW is set up more like an accounting system with Income, Expenses, Balance Sheet, etc. (which I like having come from a business background). QM 2016 is more like YNAB and other home financial management products. Instead of Income, QM uses Money In. Instead of Expenses, it uses Money Out. Many reporting functions of QW is not in QM. Most QW users will not be happy with QM 2016 because it is NOT QUICKEN.

Many of us who have switched from Windows to a Mac have installed products like Microsoft Word and Excel for Mac. The look, feel and functionality of the Mac version is very, very similar to the Windows Version. Excel is essentially the same on a PC or a Mac. That is not the case with Quicken.

If this is your first home financial system, then Quicken for Mac has many consumer features you may like. Compare it to YNAB and other MAC financial products. Just do not expect it to be like Quicken for Windows.

Bottom Line. Quicken Windows Users … this is a completely different product. Do not be misled by the name "Quicken" for Mac.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware --- Not Geniune Briggs and Stratton Part, October 17, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I rebuild old mowers and give them away to people in need. I ordered 10 Briggs and Stratton 491588S Air Filters. The ad clearly says "by Briggs and Stratton". The picture in the ad clearly has the B&S logo. However, what Interstate Supplies and Services shipped was a "knock off" and not the Geniune B&S Part. It comes in a package marked "Proven Part" "Made in China". The Air Filters I received look exactly like the Briggs Part.

I wanted the Genuine B&S Filter because I know they are reliable which is important when I give a mower to someone. I have no idea how these will perform. Maybe they will be OK, maybe not. However, the ad and picture are misleading. I do not mind buying off-brand parts when I am told in advance. What I do mind is being part of a "bait and switch" scam.

So, if you are dealing with Interstate Supplies and Services, you may or may not get exactly what you order.

Porn Nation: Conquering America's #1 Addiction

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read, May 7, 2008
Incredible! I just finished reading Porn Nation. Michael Leahy did an awesome job. The book is well written ... it flows great, he is honest and vulnerable ... yet he doesn't mince words ... he tells it like it is.

Porn Nation is the story of one man's battle against pornography and the tremendous toll that it took on him, his wife and his children. He lost everything - his marriage, his job, time with his kids, his friends ... everything. Porn Nation lets the reader know the truth about how pornography slowly but progressively destroys ones values and ones relationships. Leahy reveals how pornography distorts the mind so that women become "porn with skin on" ... killing any chance for true love and intimacy.

The book exposes the many myths and lies about pornography (like porn doesn't hurt anyone!). Leahy explains how porn, especially in the electronic age of Internet and Cell Phones, is easily available to everyone - especially kids ... starting in grade school!

Also, woven throughout his book is what I would call "an anatomy of an affair". Pathological lying, the emotional impact on his wife, his wanting to have both his wife and his "affair partner" at the same time; how he started blaming his wife for the problems in the marriage as a way of dealing with his guilt. Leahy provides a viewpoint of an affair rarely seen ... the viewpoint of the person who was having the affair. This book is a "must read" for those who are dealing or have dealt with an unfaithful spouse.

This book can have an impact on a wide range of people. Parents need to read this book to see how prevalent that viewing porn is by kids of all ages. Older teenagers need to read this book to see how destructive that porn can be. College students will clearly see how porn fuels the desire for multiple sex partners and how it kills any chance of a meaningful, intimate relationship with another person.

Read this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Watch Out for Power Consumption, August 11, 2006
Great Printer with lots of neat features. HOWEVER, the printer uses 1024 WATTS or 9.1 Amps when it powers up to print a page or make a copy. This has caused me alot of problems.

I installed the printer at home in my study. I have two desktop computers, modem, router, HP P1100 color printer,Canon PC 720 Copier, desk lamps, etc. The electrical circuit for the study is a 15 AMP circuit. Everytime the printer powers up, I take a "power hit". Fortunately, I have a UPS for each computer and the UPS units kick in to keep the systems from completely shutting down.

I'm going to have to install a new electrical outlet and run the wire to another circuit in order to keep the printer.

Before you buy, you may want to add up the WATTS of all of the equipment you have on that circuit. A 15 Amp circuit has max of 1800 WATTS; A 20 Amp circuit has max of 2400 WATTS. The 8860DN will use 1024 of the WATTS on that circuit.

Here's the link to brother's web Site that will show the power consumption.
