5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised. Tootally am, December 2, 2014
To be perfectly honest, I am not a huge fan of the cold gel in my underarm bright and early in the morning. I just want to be warm and cozy. However, I am pleasantly surprised with the results. I usually start to feel sticky by the mid day. Once in a while, I even my question in the morning - did I put my deodorant on? No questions the last few days - I feel pretty cool with everything. Dry, not sticky, care free throughout the day - in the office, in the car, at home #gotitfree

5.0 out of 5 stars Good training pet for your kiddo, September 30, 2014
This review is from: Zoomer Dino (Toy)
(Just putting it out there - this toy was sent to me for review purposes and here is my honest review)
If the brain of a cat and a dog were combined and inserted into a toy dinosaur, you would have Zoomer.
The plus: you don't have to feed it, walk it, or clean up after it. It may not be a fur baby, but it makes for a great practice pet for the kids. When Zoomer is happy, it rubs up against you and acts so cute that our cat gets jealous (absolutely serious about it). You can teach him to do a few tricks, which is amusing, especially the tail spin. Leaving dino alone is amusing as he entertains himself and farts and laughs about it. On occasion, he even beatboxes for you. When Zoomer gets mad, he gets angry and starts running into things with all his might. He does forgive very fast and goes back to being entertaining. Outside of letting Zoomer's artificial intelligence take over, the remote control can be fun since you can control where he goes and looks.
CONS:
There were a few times Zoomer freaked out and tried to back away at high speeds, hitting a wall until finally falling over, uncertain of the cause (totally didn't expect it). Be sure that your floor is clean when playing to avoid interference in the movement. If your Zoomer falls forward or backward, you can use the button on the back or on the controller to help him get back up.
OVERAL
Overall an entertaining and highly interactive toy. Great for the kids 5 an up and would make a great birthday or Christmas gift

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Easy, September 26, 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
My son goes an extra mile taking pictures of his train tracks, toy boxes and something that seem completely abstract to me. But guess what, we got a new piece of equipment in our house:
SHOWCAM by PLAYSKOOL
It looks as serious as a grown up camera and it is kids proofed. But that doesn't even start to describe what this camera can do.

Obviously your future National Geographics Photographer can practice his mad skills with this state of the art camera, but it also has great fun features that will get your kids hooked on taking hundreds of pictures. This camera has more than 50 effects that will help your kids create silly candid photos of all sorts. There is also a bunch of animations that will make your family member excited about making their own movies.

Tech Aspects
This is not really a professional camera. Don't expect the superior quality of the photos. However this is a fun toy. The camera stores about 1000 photos and requires no software.
There is a digital screen you can use to watch the videos and photos - your kiddos took or project it onto the big screen aka the wall.

It is big and I think that is what my kids love the most. I am just happy that my 4 year old is giving me back my phone in exchange to Showcam.

My kids favorite feature is projecting photos and videos onto the walls

4.0 out of 5 stars Great (very smart) Phone With Few Buts, July 1, 2013
I have this phone now for almost 2 weeks. I absolutely love the color and and it does look pretty sharp.

I have used an iPhone for just about 4 years and I have to say: there is a huge difference between the two. Using an iPhone is not the same as using a MacBook. It doesn't behave like a computer and at this point of time it can't replace a personal computer (if you are used to rely on one). When it comes to a Windows based phone, it is an actual computer with everything that is good and bad. It can sometimes crash, but it also can be controlled like a typical computer. I have always loved the task manager function (and have greatly missed it since switched to Mac).

If iPhone is your best friend, I can guarantee you will be uncomfortable with this phone at first, because the difference is H-U-G-E. However, I have to give it to Samsung guys - they work their hardest to make the switch as painless as possible.

SIM Card.
Believe it or not, you can use your iPhone SIM with the Samsung Galaxy - just pull it out of one and plug into another one. I even went back and forth few times

Samsung Smart Switch.
Free app by Samsung will help you make the switch. Back up your iPhone first and launch the program. Besides moving you personal info and data, Smart Switch will also run through the list of apps: finds compatible Android versions of your Apple apps, suggests to buy those that are paid or download free versions of the same apps. For any applications that are not available by Android, it will suggests similar apps.

But why would you really want to switch?
If you want more features and more flexibility, Samsung Galaxy has a bucket full to offer and it's Active model has even more.

Smart Everything
This might be a bit freaky, but this phone can follow your movements (I know all s4 do that, but it is new to me)
It can scroll your email up and down following your head tilt and flip pages following your non-conctact air gestures

S-Bean
That is what you so in the commercial - touch another phone and share files (as long as you stay in a certain radius)

What is so Active about Samsung Galaxy Active?
Believe it or not this phone can function under water. Don't plan on going diving with it, but it is capable of working in up to a meter under water up to 30 minutes at a time. It is also perfect beach companion, because it is not a frraid of sand. Note! You have to make sure that you phone's back cover is completely sealed. Double check it before throwing your phone into the fish tank

Anything I don't like?
I do feel that it is too smart. With so many features and options it probably will take me a while to fully understand it
I don't think the voice assist as functional as Siri
You have to make sure the screen is turned off - I have randomly pressed buttons few times while carrying it around
The camera lens - make sure to clean it before taking picture. For some reason it gets dirty very easy. I know it should have very good camera, but have made a bunch of lousy pictures because of the dirty lens. (On the good not it has a great set of filters and post production effects and editing tools)

5.0 out of 5 stars not just for little kids, January 10, 2013
My kids are not babies anymore, but a friend suggested this one for chapped skin. It is not as strong as medicated ones, but still works pretty good. Just remember to be consistent if you already have a problem

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, January 10, 2013
I am a newbie and just bought my first serious Canon. The only reason I bought this lens too, because Amazon gave me a really good deal. I figured, it seems like an expensive lens and I am getting a very good discount on it. It is an awesomely cool and just a fun lens. Just don't try to shoot in small spaces - it is telephoto :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes things so much easier, January 10, 2013
Here is what I do - I get my camera out. I take pictures, I shut it down, I put it back in the bag. Later on I open my computer and everything just comes to me. This might not be a big deal for some, but I have kids and any time anything gets left unattended, there is no guarantee it will live to see another day. READ THE INSTRUCTION, or just listen to this: if you want for the card to overwrite the images whenever it runs out of space (images already downloaded on your computer), set it up from the beginning. It's called Endless memory. I didn't and ran out of card while trying to video my daughter's performance. yeah, I know - sucks

5.0 out of 5 stars Just OMG kind of product, January 9, 2013
Absolutely love this product. And does so many things. Flip screen is great for vlogging, quality is amazing. Do make sure to buy 18-135 mm Lens. The price difference is totally worth it. I was hesitant, especially since I was already spending so much money, but it like buying a lens that would wonders vs a lens that would just do ok job. Also separately this lens would cost a lot more

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this toy, January 9, 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This toy is so not for just kids. My kids do love it, but it is highly addictive for the kids. It is pretty cool I know few people in my household who spent hours trying to master it. Lots of fun too. Better than a similar toy for Discovery Toys
