5.0 out of 5 stars SINGLE TRACK REVIEW: HENRY MANCINI SCORES ANOTHER UNUSUAL, ENJOYABLE TV THEME SONG, July 27, 2014
This review is from: Mystery Movie Theme (MP3 Music)
Back when NBC started the TV Mystery Movie series of days gone by, they enlisted the Academy Award-winning composer Henry Mancini to do the theme. Mancini originally scored his first career triumph with the huge success of both his theme music and his album of the supporting music, along with a great ensemble of actors and writers on the hit TV show "Peter Gunn". The Mystery Movie series was unusual in that it used a round-robin trio of shows that alternated each week, which went on to individual success: "Columbo" with Peter Falk, "MacMillian and Wife" with Rock Hudson and Susan Saint James, and "McCloud" with Dennis Weaver. The series even produced more hit shows and spinoffs on different days. The instrumental theme is a wonderful ascending 10-note motif riding a latin beat with a synthesizer mostly stating the main theme, while trumpet and strings do the bridge with a full orchestra pushing it all along. On the TV show's opening, the lilting theme plays while a mysterious man walks through the dark countryside with a flashlight, moving it back and forth as he approaches the camera. A big enjoyable blast from the past. Highly Recommended. Five SWIRLING Stars. (1 MP3 track; Time-2:00)

5.0 out of 5 stars NETCAM HD+ SECURITY CAMERA DELIVERS ON ITS HYPE, July 27, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Four and a half EFFECTIVE Star. This Belkin Netcam HD+ Security Camera is advertised as "HD Wi-Fi Camera with Night Vision" with Premium HD glass lens, Easy Setup and Cloud+Premium Services. It also comes with an Apple and Google Play Store App that allows connection with smartphones or tablets. Out of the box, it is apparent that this product's presentation is a 'step up' from many other security cameras with a clear and intuitive Quick Install Guide and with a power supply that will not block the adjacent power receptacle as some do. With regard to the ease of setup, the software is downloaded quickly from the respective App Store, the camera is powered up, and the camera is recognized by the Belkin site producing a clear sharp normal and night vision picture that is viewed from the iPhone5 and operates as required. However, among the local WiFi network listing of users, the NetCam listing is not showing the lock symbol and is therefore not secure. Smartphones with Apple IOS 5.0 or higher or Android 2.3 or higher are required to monitor the activities in the view field of the camera. Highly Recommended. Four and a VISUAL Stars.

MOCREO® Universal World Wide All-in-one Safety Travel Charger Wall Charger Adapter Plug Built-in Dual USB Ports (White)
MOCREO® Universal World Wide All-in-one Safety Travel Charger Wall Charger Adapter Plug Built-in Dual USB Ports (White)
Offered by MOCREO
Price: $24.80

5.0 out of 5 stars THE MOCREO MULTI-NATIONAL PLUG ADAPTER IS VERSATILE, July 21, 2014
This MOCREO Universal World Wide All-in-one Safety Travel Charger is a very versatile device that can convert to fit many specific wall plug adaptations around the world: specifically to meet requirements in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, and Europe, and 150 countries that use their plug configurations. This device does NOT do power, current, or voltage conversion of any type: it simply passes the power from the wall power receptacle thru the Universal plug adapter to the electronic device/appliance on the other end of the Universal plug adapter. No grounding: the USA plug has only 2 prongs. "This product is for use with unearthed or double-insulated appliances only". It may not work with certain high power devices requiring more than 6 amps such as hair dryers. Each country has its own regulations for using these devices, so please check before use.

This device has a multiple input receptacle on top that can accept a UK, USA, Australian, and European power plug attached to an electronic device. Then by selecting from a 3-position switch on the side marked "U.K.", "EUROPE", "USA/AUS", the proper plug is deployed for plugging into a wall power receptacle of the foreign country. Blue LEDs light up when plugged in. For the UK and USA use, a specific plug comes out of either end. However, in order to get the European plug, one must push the selector switch to the "Europe" position and push the selector button in to deploy the two prongs from the bottom. In addition, there are 2 USB charging ports of 1 Amp and 2.1 Amps for charging smartphones, tablets, and computers. Read the instructions carefully before use. I am in the USA and tested this device on an appliance with a UK plug which I plugged into the top of this unit and deployed the US plug and plugged it into my US wall receptacle: the appliance worked for hours with no problem, except slight heating of the MOCREO charger. I also used both USB receptacles successfully for charging smartphones. Highly Recommended for specific ungrounded applications. Four and a half FLEXIBLE Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars MOCREO SOUND BAR IS AN EXCELLENT WATERPROOF BLUETOOTH SPEAKER, July 21, 2014
This black stylish, silicone MOSOUND Bar individual portable Bluetooth speaker from MOCREO charges up in 4 hours using a provided USB charging cable and at full charge provides up to 6 hours of medium-volume music, radio, audio books, and so on. This is done either by the speaker's Bluetooth V2.1 connection with the computer, smartphone, or tablet device or by direct connection between the MOSOUND speaker and the device using the provided 3.5 mm dual-pronged audio cable plugged into the MOSOUND Aux in port. A pleasant female voice announces Bluetooth or Aux connection, implied disconnection ("Hi, I'm ready for a connection."), or auto "Power off". The device also accepts a 16GB TF/Micro-USB card for playing music without Bluetooth. The TF, Aux, and Micro head ports are under a rubber strip on the side near the power "on" and the phone answering button.

This waterproof MOCREO speaker produces very nice, medium loud stereo wireless sound (120 Hz to 18 kHz) from front-firing speakers over 32 feet (~10 meters) through two walls (out to a maximum 43 feet line of sight). Its Bluetooth and IPX4 waterproof rating (splashing liquid from any direction, but not immersion) solves the problem of taking expensive smartphones, computers, and tablet devices into a hot bathroom with lots of moisture in the air from a shower: this speaker can sit on the bathroom sink on slightly raised legs and play on with clear sound, with your device safe in the next room. Or you can take it to the beach. If a phone call interrupts music play, tapping the side phone symbol on the speaker's side allows call completion with a strong, clear signal. Con: operating the "+" and "-" controls for raising volume/changing tracks takes a slight learning curve. My Highest Recommendation. Five FLEXIBLE Stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars HALO4: THE MOVIE EXPANDS THE VIDEO GAME EXPERIENCE, July 19, 2014
This review is from: Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn (DVD)
Four RIVETING Stars! "Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn" is a theatrical film by 343 Industries who took over the helm of the billion dollar video game empire that began with the likes of Bungee, Microsoft, Macsoft, and so on. The film is a full uncut version of the TV mini-series which is based on the experiences of Captain Lasky on board his ship "Infinity", thinking back to his days as a freshman member of Hastati squad at the UNSC Corbulo Academy of Military Science when, in the midst of training, they have their first experience with a unique, deadly enemy not taught in their cirriculum. After a slowly developing introduction of the squad members, the action and tension picks up with the 'first encounter' and some unique friendly warriors. Whets the appetite for more HALO movies and the upcoming 343 production of HALO5. Directed by Stewart Hendler. Very Definitely Recommended as a franchise product and stand alone Sci Fi. Four AXIOS Stars! (Amazon Prime Video. Time:1:27)

5.0 out of 5 stars SINGLE TRACK REVIEW: SINGER/SONGWRITER SARA BAREILLES GROUNDS US WITH A STUNNING "GRAVITY", July 14, 2014
This review is from: Gravity (MP3 Music)
"Something always brings me back to you, and never takes too long."

Five EXCELLENT Stars! Singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles is definitely one of the best young rising stars out there in pop music: possibly headed towards Streisand and Dion territory if she keeps it up, writing and singing some heavyweight, heartfelt songs, delivered by her sweet dynamic soprano voice, backed up by her own attractive piano stylings. In the album "Little Voice", one of the best performances among many is the song "Gravity" starting sweetly and building in intensity to one stunning, hair-raising grace note crescendo that is twisted and turned up and down the music scale in one long breath. "Gravity" was previously the lead song in "Careful Confessions". My Highest Recommendation. Five AMAZING Stars! (1 MP3 track. Time: 3:52)

Deep Space Explorer
Deep Space Explorer

Price: $1.99

2.0 out of 5 stars MISSES THE TARGET: DAZZLING LIGHT SHOW, ANIMATION, & SPACE SHUTTLE LAUNCHES, SET TO PULSING MUSIC, July 14, 2014
Two AVERAGE Stars! "Deep Space Explorer" is mostly an hour of dazzling, music-only, animated light-show effects, augmented with 15 minutes of actual and animated `earth-to-near space' launches and animated moon landing video segments that ultimately disappoint in dealing with `deep space exploring'. With so many near and deep space achievements by nations around the globe from the last decade, I was expecting at least Hubble Space Telescope deep space photographs, information on interplanetary and Voyager-like explorations beyond Pluto, and some verbal information, but instead we get videos of animated, very colorful spinning globes, aurora borealis effects, colorful spinning wheels, and tunnels of changing colors for an hour, all to the sound of pulsating music beats. Then for the final 15 minutes, the theme changes to actual and simulated, but still spectacular, launch shots of the now-cancelled USA Space Shuttle program, orbital satellites, and animated Moon landings complete with astronauts in motion. NOT RECOMMENDED because it fails to treat the main topic, but it is dazzling as a light show of what `might' be out in deep space, waiting to be explored. Two OFF-TARGET Stars. (Animated and actual footage with music. Time 1:15. Amazon Prime Video via FireTV.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY DELICIOUS CUP OF PEPPERMINT GREEN TEA., July 14, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Five FLAVORFUL Stars! This Traditional Medicinals company Green Tea Peppermint package contains 16 individually wrapped tea bags each of which deliver a very pleasant cup of organic tea which is heavily flavored with the taste of peppermint. In fact, in each cup the scale is tipped in 'flavor' of peppermint: 1020 mg of organic peppermint leaf and 480 mg of organic green tea leaf per bag, as well as 12 mg of naturally occurring caffeine.

Each bag is to be steeped in 8 ounces of hot water for 10-15 minutes. Traditonal Medicinals says the product soothes the digestive tract, but advises users to consult their healthcare practitioner before use in case of gallstones, bile duct obstruction, hietal hernias, acid reflux, and pregnancy/breastfeeding. With these limitations in mind, this flavor tea product, high in peppermin essential oil and with the touted benefits of green tea is Highly Recommended. Five TASTY Stars! (1 box of organic Green Tea Peppermint Tea containing 16 bags)


Polka Dot Pinwheels Package of 12
Polka Dot Pinwheels Package of 12

3.0 out of 5 stars A DOZEN SMALL MULTI-COLORED PINWHEEL WIND SPINNERS, July 14, 2014
A dozen nice very small 3 1/2 inch multi-bladed, multi-colored easy-spinning pinwheels with polka dots all over the surface, mounted on a 9 3/4 inch wooden stick. Spins freely at the slightest breeze placed outside of the home. It will also spin as you can walk along holding it in your hand, or it can just be used as a decoration inside of the home, or placed near an air conditioner/heating register to get some additional spinning benefit from a strong air current. Very small in size, spins easily, and is Definitely Recommended. Three ATTRACTIVE Stars! (Very Small Plastic Pin Wheels on a Wooden Stick. Package of 12)

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT STYLISH ALL-PURPOSE, MULTI-POCKETED VIKING CORDURA ROLL BAG, July 14, 2014
This review is from: Viking Cruise Roll Bag
Five VERSATILE Stars! This strong, stylish-looking medium-sized Viking Cruise Roll Bag is made of black Cordura material and has 2 large side pockets and 2 smaller zippered external pockets, plus a large internal storage cavity with 3 internal zippered pockets and 2 pen holders on the inner top lid. The bottom has both 2 strong bungee attachment cords and 2 cordura straps with male ends on either side of the bag. To prevent scratches when sitting on other surfaces, there is a permanently-attached Cordura flap that can be attached with Velcro to the other side to cover the entire bottom area, covering up the bungee and cordura strap attachment points when the bag is not mounted on a motorcycle. Plus there is a separate bottom cover that can be attached by Velcro for additional protection. There are two 8 inch long pocket strips for mounting bar insertion (not included).The outer dimensions of the roll bag are: approximately 20 inches long, 15 inches high, and 12 inches wide and there are leather accent plates on either side.

The interior is lined with soft felt-like material to protect its contents. As a capacity test, I was able to put 4 full one-gallon milk containers inside the main compartment, side by side, two abreast. As a practically test, there is enough room, in actual use, for 3 pairs of jeans, 3 shirts, 3 pairs of underwear and socks, a pair of sneakers and a pair of flip-flops: suitable for a 3-day getaway. Plus in the 3 compartments of the top lid, I can stow a wallet, cell phone, Kindle tablet, smartphone battery charger, and two pens in pen holder slots (a total of 15 pounds of stowed internal gear). There is also a separate 4 gallon capacity waterproof bag with drawstring for extra protection of the bag from rain or to keep dirty laundry from soiling the interior. The bag can be carried by either 2-piece strong Cordura handcarry straps, secured together with Velcro, or a separate 3 foot long shoulder strap with rubber slip-resistant pad in the middle and carabiners on either end for attachment to the case. There is one 14 by 1 inch light-reflective strip on the side for night time visibility.

Outside of its use as a motorcycle luggage bag, this nice-looking, rugged bag can also be used as a gym bag, carry-on flight luggage, or nice-sized essentials-only "go bag", and it gets My Highest Recommendation. Five EXCELLENT Stars (1 black Cordura and leather Viking Cruise Roll Bag, 5 pounds. This product was provided for testing and an impartial review.)
