5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful pictures. Could be longer, October 18, 2014
I'm going to make these guys if they keep making these in German, Italian, and French. Outstanding product, well made, beautiful pictures. Could be longer, if I had to give it a slight downgrade--and pick some words that aren't cognates next time editors. Der Bus? Yeah, I don't need a book to teach him that one. Ditto on teddybear.

1.0 out of 5 stars Released with bugs, June 5, 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Publisher released a buggy game expecting to force you to download the patch. Don't fall for it--save your green. Sick of companies half-donkeying their jobs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Republicans will hate this book!, March 16, 2012
In short, Republicans lose elections in inner cities--and then respond by moving away! There is no way in hell we are going to let that tax base run away from its responsibilities. Detroit would STILL be a shining city on the hill if Republicans hadn't given up and run away like a thief in the night, taking their tax revenue with them.

Poor children are being robbed of their Constitutional right to a good education, and Republicans have been fighting this responsibility since they almost stopped the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Only the work of generous Democratic Senators and Representatives got the CRA passed, and not a moment too soon.

Only books like this can show what's happening in this country today, and help us stop it! Stop white flight using the full power of the Constitution immediately!

1.0 out of 5 stars They're selling old packets, February 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The five year shelf life is impressive. Too bad it arrived with about 30 days left on that.

Why do they think someone would order these and intend to eat them almost immediately?

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe it works as good as it does for this low a price, October 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have tile floors and this thing might as well be in cement once it's in place--if you're in a state like California where double-sided keyed deadbolts are illegal AND have side windows next to front door: this is your product.

If someone punches out your sidelight, then yes, EVENTUALLY they could figure out how to undo this thing--but the surprise of a door not coming open after the deadbolt is turned while the alarm is wailing might be enough to make them take off running.

For the money, I'm very very happy with this product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Capitalism's Achilles Heel? "Freedom", says the author, September 10, 2010
Free flow of capital is going to, by definition, be amoral. Some capital will flow to orphanages, some to drug dealers. According to the author, the best way to ensure none of it goes to drug dealers is to have the federal government able to see every transaction, and forbid any transaction in cash.

This should frighten the lot of you. Governments have been on a never-ending quest since the dawn of time to control every aspect of your lives, and with the advent of the computer, that capability is now here.

Cut your credit cards and pay cash for what you want, buy houses for cash, and stop automatically giving out your phone number and home address to the minimum-wage zombie working the cash register at Best Buy when she asks for it.

And any time the government invokes drug dealers for a policy, grab your wallet and run.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring beginning (you start with the UN?!), sad middle, very disturbing end, March 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Having loved 2001 and the sequels, I was very interested to read another book by Clarke. Until around page 21, when I realized there was going to be some kind of message in the book. Authors sending me a message usually = the plot is going to suck. Long story short--this book shows us what Clarke's idea of what a great afterlife it would be without a God. Oh, and if we all give up our individuality. So some Socialist undertones to the rampant Atheism throughout. And to those who say there's no pro-Atheism, anti-religious bias in the book? Take a look at humanity's "assistants" through the process. Subtle Arthur, very subtle. Ditch this waste of paper, and save yourself about 3 hours of wasted reading, and 1 to 2 hours of rampant depression after finishing it--this is the most depressing thing I've ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it should--protect my investment, January 29, 2010
It does a fantastic job of protecting my iPod Nano--I've dropped it several times while working out. The ipod WILL slide down if you wear it on your arm with the bottom exposed, but why anyone would wear it that way since the screen is upside down to you is beyond me.

Another reviewer mentioned the armband is a little snug if your arm is bigger--that's true, but if you slide it down to your forearm while running or rowing (what I do) or put it on a belt (shouldn't be hard), that would fix it.

All in all, I'm very happy with it, and wish Apple included something like this for the money I paid them for the iPod itself.
