Sublime.

I don't have more words for you than that. Pristine sound, inspired performance, and most of all, the amazing music of Beethoven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fed Up With the Church? You Are NOT Alone., August 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Before writing this review, I decided to scan the 1-star reviews here.

Ugh. Did they even READ this book? Or did they just sputter forth the same criticisms that they've been told they are supposed to have of all things "liberal" or "progressive."

If those reviews pissed you off, and you've totally written off church, this might be the book for you. The church is a strange place, full of interesting characters and, far too often, some very narrow minds. And, for what it's worth, it's where Jesus does life with his people, so you do NOT want to miss THAT.

Perhaps the church is dying like all the pundits and pollsters say. Maybe that's a good thing... or even a great thing... Then, when it resurrects again, it will look more like the church that Rachel found and less like the one she left behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun, August 10, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This game is serious fun.

Not too hard to learn, not too hard to play, I love that you can play with even only 1 player.

Pieces and parts are well made enough to last, and the game feels like it'll never get old.

Price seems just right for what you get.

Great family fun, or just one on one, or even by yourself.


TC Electronic PolyTune Clip

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny., August 10, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Extraordinary!

First off, it's smaller than it looks in pictures, so it won't take up too much space and call attention to itself. The display is big and bright, the tuning is accurate and fast, especially in strobe mode.

I use guitars that feature the Buzz Feiten Tuning System, and I wish this tuner had a mode for that, but for this price, to get a "real" strobe tuner in this form factor is simply amazing.

It can be a little awkward to attach to some guitars (like strats and teles), but it'll get there and although I prefer the form factor of the tiny little Planet Waves tuner, this one is way faster, the display is much brighter, and it feels much more solid. I suspect it will last.

I find the polytune mode (where you hit all the strings and adjust them) fairly useless, but even ignoring that (and you might like it very much) it's a great value for a pro tuner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent clean-up wipes at a bit of a high price., August 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am not reviewing this as a "science took", but as a basic clean-up solution.

A little windex and one of these and you have a great electronic screen cleaner or glass cleaner. They're plenty big so they're easy enough to use, and even though they feel kinda stiff, they don't seem to be a product that will scratch glass.

However, for a lot of things, ya know what works way better or just as well for less money? Viva paper towels.

Don't pay the extra for these unless you need what they specifically offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview of Paul, especially for book clubs and small groups., August 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
First off, if you're looking for a complete understanding of Paul, his life and world, this book is too short for that. And a bunch of you are probably thinking "thank goodness for that".

If you're looking for a "popular" account, and especially if you want a great book to do a small-group study, you probably can't do better.

Hamilton fills his book with photos and stories to shed light on the man who some say founded Christianity. The book is a quick and easy read, but still gives enough depth and background to give the average Christian a firm grounding in who this man was and why he means so much to us today.

Highly recommended, especially if you can get a group to do it together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Original Cut Is Better, But You Get That Here, Too, July 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The movie is great, the "Rogue Cut" is a waste of 17 minutes.

I suppose it's fine to see a different cut of the film, but only after you've enjoyed the excellently edited and paced original cut. Adding Rogue into the story doesn't add anything to the excitement, and slows the film down in places.

The two different casts feels a little like one of those retrospective episodes they used to do a lot on TV series to quickly and inexpensively do an extra episode, but that doesn't hurt the movie in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars AGain, a terriffic product for the student who is hard on things., July 30, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pardon me for copying and pasting from another review, but this is so similar to the other excellent product I've already received from these guys.

Terrific product. Just enough ruggedness to last all year. pockets for each subject come in handy, there is a lot of flexibility and toughness to the cover, which has a cloth back to avoid (I expect) falling apart. There is also a pen-holder on the front.

The price is right for something that has to last for teens who are tough on their school supplies.

Just like the other Five Star product I reviewed recently... Terrific product. Just enough ruggedness to last all year. moveable storage picket is a great idea, there is a lot of flexibility and toughness to the cover, which has a cloth back to avoid (I expect) falling apart.

The price is right for something that has to last for teens who are tough on their school supplies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great value for the money, but install Windows 10 FIRST!, July 15, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It is tempting to harp on the things that you might not like about this, so let's get them out of the way.

A "tablet" without a detatchable keyboard might not be everyone's cup of tea. It's bulkier in the hand and lap than you want. If you want a tablet, you should buy a tablet.

The size is a little big for an 11" notebook, enough so that it might not fit in the sleeve or case that another 11" notebook fits in, so be careful there. Make sure it fits.

And if you are going to do anything remotely "serious" with a computer, this is not going to cut it with only 2G RAM and 32G storage. Lastly, setup was really clunky. I had to hard shut-down the computer twice before it would complete.

I would give it 5 stars because of the value I'm about to detail, but I've removed 2 stars. The reason why is at the end of the review.

FIrst, that slightly bigger size makes the keyboard as easy to use as it is on my 13" laptop. And most 11" laptops are just plain useless. That said, I find all non-Mac trackpads to be too hard to use, and this is no exception.

But mostly... the price of this, considering you get a touch-screen and a case robust enough to withstand moderate use for a while, is insanely great. I didn't expect at this price to find 3 USB ports, HDMI, SD Card slot and even wired Ethernet. The value they have packed into this is remarkable.

Many people who an iPad or tablet, then end up using it with a keyboard all the time, who are looking to do work and email and web surfing, would imho be way better served by one of these, probably for way less money. I have an iPad, but if I'm surfing or doing light typing, I'd rather use this in a heartbeat.

If you're content-creating (audio/video/graphics) this is not the computer for you. It's too small in size and in memory and storage space. If you are "consuming content" and doing general email, word docs, and stuff like that, this is just perfect.

If you have bad eyesight, an 11" screen is too small, but that is not a defect of this computer.

One last thing, I'm normally a Mac user, and I am not going to switch for my daily driver any time soon... but... Apple has stubbornly refused to add a touch-screen feature to the Mac line. Even a cheap little computer like this is a great lesson that this is a mistake. The touch screen comes in so handy. Apple, are you listening? I know it wasn't your idea to do that on a "real" computer, but do it... soon...

Update: I have removed two stars from this review

When you first get this computer out of the box, it has a free upgrade to windows 10 sticker on it.

You can not install Windows 10 on this computer as shipped to you if you install even one or two little programs or run Windows Update. It does not NEARLY have enough space available.If you restore the computer to factory defaults, it frees up the space you need, and you can install. So... IF YOU WANT TO RUN WINDOWS 10 ON THIS MACHINE INSTALL IT BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE.

I will update again as I test this under Windows 10 (Home Edition)
