5.0 out of 5 stars Big Sound in a Tiny Package, July 18, 2014
The Inateck BP2001 is a compact portable speaker that packs quite the punch. In the box it comes with a charging cord, user manual and an auxiliary 3.5mm cord. Without ever plugging the device in to charge before use I was able to get about two and a half hours of playtime at fairly high volumes. In this review I did a side-by-side comparison with the TYLT Tunz which cost more than double the price. As far as price range is concerned, this speaker is a few steps above. Here are some pros and cons I noticed for of the device.

Pros
[+] Comes precharged
[+] Clear crisp sound even at top volume
[+] No distortion
[+] Price is great for the quality
[+] Sturdy design and kickstand

Cons
[-] Not a lot in the lower register
[-] Will not pair with some android devices
[-] Does not have an aux out

When putting the speaker head to head with the TYLT Tunz I was not expecting the device to stand as tall as it did. With both at top volume the Tunz began distorting bass and mid range where the BP2001 continued to remain true. With both beginning at a full charge the BP2001 only died fifteen minute before the Tunz. Overall if you are looking for an economically designed and priced Bluetooth speaker, I would put the BP2001 at the top of your list. I was provided the speaker for review by the manufacturer. I stand by my review - this is a quality product. Unfortunately someone swiped it off my desk so I suggest putting it away if you work in an office with heavy foot traffic.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Odd Sequel, June 30, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm a big fan of the Iron Druid series. Few series make it this far because they can run out of steam if the characters aren't interesting or the plots intricate. And here's where this series is perhaps showing its strains. In this book Hearne has decided to add a twist by adding two extra perspectives to the narrative: Granuaile and Eóghan Ó Cinnéide (Atticus's arch-druid mentor). It make for an odd narrative flow. Granuaile's father is an archaeologist digging in India who has become possessed. Overall I enjoyed the book but the jump in narrative perspectives made the story less engrossing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living on the Edge, June 30, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Arlo's life on the surface sounds like fun - he rides trick bikes and is the top player in the world at Drone Pilot. But under that he has to deal with his dad crawling into the bottle, his sister's Huntington's problems and they are all grieving the death of their mother. And now he's being hired by the government to fly drones over Pakistan. In some ways I get the parallels to Ender's Game but I think this book is perhaps a little deeper, a little closer to home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Military Sci-Fi, June 26, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm a sucker for military sci-fi and this series is becoming a guilty pleasure. Max and Sahin are balling the Krag and dealing with incompetent staff and officers that care more for politics then military ability. Fun stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Sequel, June 26, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I was hoping for a reboot for the Watch series but I was unsure where the author was going to go. In this book Magician Anton Gorodetsky is on a plane and a child starts ranting that the plane is about to crash. Anton discovers this child is a prophet. This serendipity leads to a series of events and prophesies that may shake the wold and unleash a magical evil. The world making aspect of this series is fairly well fleshed out so the author has to lean on the narrative much more and there are some define weak spots, especially when it comes to dialog and character development. But this book is a fun return to a familiar dark world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weird Magical Premise but a Fun Read, June 26, 2014
This review is from: California Bones (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Kind of Like Hannibal Leceter meets Ocean 11. Osteomancy is a kind of magic where you gain power by consuming another person's bones or flesh. Daniel Blackland is living on the run since he was 12 and he's been asked to steal a powerful sword that may topple the magical hierarchy that runs the country. A decent start to a new series the author does an excellent job of developing the main character but I tend to gravitate to series with a good ensemble cast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Premise - Magic as Alternate US History, June 26, 2014
This review is from: American Craftsmen (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
To be honest I picked this book up because of my fond memories of Orson Scott Card's Alvin Maker series and Larry Correia's Monster Hunter series. The basic premise is that magic has existed since the founding of the country and people with special magical talents or "Crafts" serve to defend the country. A parallel history of sorts. Dale Morgan is the latest incarnation and after surviving a dangerous mission in Iran hew comes to believe a conspiracy involving another faction of the Morgan clan. A decent start to a new series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best, June 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I tried this out using my iPhone and I have to say there is just too much noise. In my other car I use a cheapo Tape adapter and the sound is much better. Maybe it's because I live in a big city with fewer open FM bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and Interresting, June 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've always been fascinated with architecture and building construction. I find it curios that there aren't more books like this since we all live in houses and work in buildings built with the same basic construction designs. This books does a good job of detailing the European version of standard construction.
