Roku Streaming Stick (3500R)
Roku Streaming Stick (3500R)

4.0 out of 5 stars much smaller size, gives up very little, March 11, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a couple Roku 3's and love them--if they could just get iTunes channel, all the big streaming services are there. I opted for the stick this time to use with a wall-mounted TV. The TV is a Vizio that has streaming capability built in, but the Amazon app is too limited (why did they leave the watch list out?) as are other apps. The channel options are also very limited. So the stick is great for a wall-mounted TV. I'm planning on getting a 90º HDMI adapter so the TV can be closer to the wall. No fault of the Roku Stick, if my TV had the side mounted HDMI input, it wouldn't be necessary. The trade-off for the much smaller unit and lower price: a little bit slower, no games and a different remote (though my Roku remote app connects seamlessly). As far as I can see from just the first use, it looks just like its bigger brother. One minor disappointment with the remote: it has 4 permanent shortcut buttons. A good idea, except when one of those services is no longer available. It would be nice to be able to select your 4 favorites, to allow for different tastes. Otherwise, very satisfied. Another winner for Roku. Bonus: free movie rental coupon & free trial month for a few movie channels.

3.0 out of 5 stars a little disappointed, March 5, 2016
I got this (direct from Keurig), expecting access to all the serving sizes that my Keurig 2.0 offers, but it still only offers the 4-10 oz sizes. It is well made and I like the screw top instead of the more fragile plastic hinge many others use. However, I'd recommend the Fill N Save 2 Pack Reusable Carafe K-Cups. Reusable coffee filter for the Keurig 2.0, K200, K300, K400, K500 Series of Machines which has two for just a little more than the cost of the Keurig, but does allow access to all the 2.0 modes, 4 oz to carafe. And its plastic hinge is a little snap-in type that allows easy removal and longer durability than the plastic that seems to weaken with each use on most of the smaller K-Cup reusables. When those break, I'll have no need to replace them, since I have those others

4.0 out of 5 stars my dogs love it, March 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My dogs love it (although living in Arizona, it's not practical in summer, allowing all that air conditioning cooled air to be wasted) it is very handy for those times when your pet is conducting thorough inside vs outside testing. I've had mine up since last summer (I used the included tacks and added some heavy duty staples) it's holding up quite well (even though it's not really intended for long term use). I have one issue that may affect some, but not all users: I have a steel security screen door, and when the dogs run through it on their way out, the magnets often catch on the open door or the steel frame. So, I always check that it has closed when they run out. For people and mellow dogs, the magnets snap right back together

Nice mix of Monuments Men, Indiana Jones, and I.Q. (I.Q.. Some mysticism, intrigue, mystery and a light-hearted view of Albert Einstein in his later years at Princeton.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't leave it plugged in for extended periods, March 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This looked to be a good solution for those who already have a phone cover. The thin metal pad can be used without having to use the adhesive. The neck is a little stuff--good for supporting the phone, not so good for adjusting. I ran into two issues that made stop using it. I drive a manual transmission Mazda 6 and the car's lighter socket places it too close to the shifter and blocks some AC controls. Likely no issue for other vehicles, just not the best fit for my car. The other issue is with the power plug. It does add two usb ports for recharging, but I would not recommend leaving it in the socket when your car is not running. It apparently was leeching some power (nothing plugged in to it, just sitting in the socket) and after a cold night, left me with a dead battery. I had the car checked: charging system & battery were fine; the only other cause I can see is that this happened after I had been using it a little over a week. Bottom line: if there are no placement issues, works well, but disconnect when not in use


Western Kokopelli Travel Mug
Western Kokopelli Travel Mug

4.0 out of 5 stars Large good-looking mug, March 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Western Kokopelli Travel Mug
I really like this mug. It's got a nice big (16oz) capacity, looks good with a kokopelli figure on both sides (twice the luck!) and a simple yet effective lid. My only criticism is the little decorative curl inside the handle: would be more comfortable without it. It's a little too big for the handle, and doesn't really add to its looks (especially for those with large hands/fingers)

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made, March 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
well made, nice long leash to allow your dog a little extra room to roam. I have two small dogs and this did not solve the problem I have with my dogs' habit of spreading out when we walk. This is not because of the leash--this would be great with one dog, even a large one. Wide & strong, comfortable handle. Nice leash, my pups just outsmarted me. Again. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars the old reliable, March 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been doing my taxes with this (starting with earlier versions Personal Tax Edge and MacInTax) since the mid-90's. Does a great job walking you through your taxes making the enormous tax laws understandable. TurboTax has several versions to suit your tax situation's level complexity, and will import your information from the previous year if TurboTax was used then. Intuit also provides excellent tech & customer support. I only wish I had waited a little longer to order (I ordered my copy in early December) because the price eventually came down (below Intuit's direct order price) and my tax documents were delayed this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good cable, March 5, 2016
I have an iPhone 5 and Kindle Fire, and have them both with me at work--the Kindle for listening (music, audiobooks, radio etc) and the iPhone for email/messages/calls. I've tried the clip on adapters (both the iPhone 30-pin to lightning, and the micro usb to lightning adapters, and they seem to work OK for a little while, but the micro usb end don't seem to fit well, and end up providing a poor connection. This cable does not have that issue. When using with the iPhone, it charges just as well as the Apple OEM cable. The adapter has a nice snug fit (on both cable and phone ends), and as many of this type cable the adapter is physically attached to the cable when not in use (those other little adapters are very easily misplaced)
