3.0 out of 5 stars Solar Leather, August 29, 2014
There is no question that Citizen has been trying well too hard to get a younger generation of watch wearers into the sleekness of their Eco-Drive watches. But while they have great technology, the Drive collections 2.0 & 3.0 have really been more wastes on the dollar than driven timepieces. This Leather strapped piece though is a little bit better than the lagging watches that Citizen has made. It has a nice solar movement, good illumination on the hands and easy to read date and time. What I do not like about the watch though is the chronograph is a bit hard to read, and doesn't have enough display for reading the hours and the A.M. / P. M. sub-dial. It has good water resistance, but more could've been put into the watch to match the prestige other brands like Invicta and Casio have put into their timepieces. Still, it is a fairly good beginners' watch fr anyone trying to get into a Citizen watch for the first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gold-tone Classy Automatic, August 28, 2014
There is no question that when it has came down watches, people have definitely overlooked Stuhrling, and what has made them a fantastic watch company. While so many people have longed for watches from Invicta and Michael Kors, they have definitely made great concepts n watches from the classy automatic, to watches really made for the modern generation. Yet, there is a elegant simplicity and class in some of their watches. Their Augustus automatic has a beautiful self-winding movement and a simplicity in reading the date and time. I also like the dimensions in the mirror-finish in the face of the watch. Yet, there is one small flaw in the strap. While I do like the easy to adjust clasp in the leather strap, which shows less wear and tear of the piece, it just doesn't stay as crisp and solidly locked. But still, once adjusted it works nicely, and a great buy for anyone looking for a nice timepiece. While so many people have overlooked Stuhrling watches, I definitely suggest you give them a shot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stayed To Him, August 28, 2014
This review is from: Stay With Me (MP3 Music)
There is no question that there are very few and far between songs that really are worth their while in voice and absolute heart. Especially from so many artists like Katy Perry, Beyonce' Knowles and Rihanna. But for new artists, it has been so hard to really find the right song and let it come from the heart. For newcomer Sam Smith, he has a lot to really prove from voice and heart. But nevertheless, his breakout song absolutely sounds much, much better than all the joke songs that are on radio right now. Stay With Me, Sam's breakout song from In The Lonely Hour really sounds absolutely brilliant and simply beautiful. It actually is a lovely song that sincerely comes from the heart. For a guy to be brought up on Whitney Houston, and Chaka Khan, he really knows how t make a lovely start. I hope that Sam isn't labeled as a one-hit wonder, because he has a lot of talent. Let's see him follow-up what a lovely song is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Horizontal Face, August 27, 2014
There is no question that so many companies this past year have really tried to be more modern for a generation of watch owners who want to really be more with tablets. Nevertheless, they have had some unique watches with great designs and clever concepts. But nevertheless, when it has came down to automatic watches, whenever a timepiece shows a bit of skeletal display, it does seem to be a it boring rather than classy. Android shows that with the Horizon timepiece, which is a clever watch that displays the time in a straight set of lines, rather than a traditional face. It is a bit tricky to get used to if you have never owned a Android watch before. Sadly, the semi-skeletal display does make it a bit trickier to tell time on this watch. It has good water resistance, but needs a bit better display. The watch is cleverly designed, but could be more for its money. If you new in Android watches though, this is one to try out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreamcast Days, August 27, 2014
This review is from: Crazy Taxi (App)
There is no question about the legacy that Sega had made in classic video games. While they have been out of the console business for over a decade, their classics have still withstood the test of time. While the Genesis system has reigned supreme as a template of the video game industry, Sega's other systems haven't delivered in the same stamina like the Saturn, Sega CD, Game Gear or the Dreamcast. While Sega's Dreamcast had some really great classic games, they still are very hard to find fit for all systems, after Sega's demise. Crazy Taxi was one of those guilty pleasure that still shows how much fun Sega had it at making some clever games past Sonic The Hedgehog. The object of the game is very simple, get passengers from Point A to Point B as fast as you can. It is a very fun game, and shows just how much fun Sega had it. It has a great soundtrack and fun gameplay. It is a great buy for anyone who loves the classics that Sega showcased, or for any die hard fan of the actual Dreamcast era.

3.0 out of 5 stars Robin's Whitney Houston, August 27, 2014
This review is from: Exhale (Shoop Shoop) (MP3 Music)
There is no denying the simplicity of a voice when it sincerely comes from the heart. For female singers, Whitney Houston will always be the diamond template that so many desired to be like. Whether it is Beyonce', Jennifer Hudson or Rihanna. She set the bar so high, she broke and made records for every female singer from top to bottom. For a male singer to try and deliver a female singers' work, it is very difficult. Robin Thicke tried that as a tribute to Whitney's legacy, when he recorded a version of her hit song Exhale (Shoop Shoop.) I found it to be very light, but not as a simplistic or beautiful as the mighty voice showed the song nearly 20 years ago. It is a good sing for any die hard Robin Thicke, but doesn't compare to the version from Waiting To Exhale. Robin is going through a lot, and this should be a song he should have on Paula, better than the lagging Get Her Back. Maybe he needs this to get Paula Patton back in his life.

This review is from: Stay With Me (MP3 Music)
There honestly have been very, very few songs that have been worth while from a new artist in this generation. But with a era so overexposed by joke singers like Rihanna, Katy Perry and Beyonce' Knowles and other female artists, sometimes it is so nice to see a man sing the soul of a woman and their heart. When I heard this song from Sam Smith, I was absolutely impressed with how elegant and lovely this piece really is. I just sincerely hope he isn't labeled as a -one-hit wonder because the song speaks for itself brilliantly. For a man who said his influence was the great Whitney Houston, he really hits the mark so well. It definitely is a much better song than all the jokes out there on radio. Hopefully, we'll have more from Sam Smith down the road that works just as well. This song shows real beauty from the heart.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is no question that when finding the right vacuums these days, it has definitely became a hassle in price, and compatability, for ay floor and any value. But nevertheless, there ae som tha be of so much value that it has been very difficult to find after time. Irobot has been one of those brands that many people have seeked, but sadly has not been in the best of terms with value and convience as well.But when I haev decided to try them after all the hoopla, and time many people have wanted a better kind of clean, this brand definitely handles very well. It handles with a simple charge of the battery and virtually can go from one room to another. I like it beause it doesn't feel like you are weighed down in simplicity. While I do feel bad that it costs so much to get one, I would have to say it definitely is worth it though. It gets very deep in the carpets and floors, and cleans nicely in those hard to reach regions of the home. I absolutely recommend a Romba for our home, if you have the money and the patience to give you vacuum a try and let it firmly do the work for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two-Tone Automatic, August 25, 2014
There is no question that when it has came down to contemporary watches, it has been very hard to see which companies have really stood the test of time. Invicta, has been one of those companies that really not only ave made great watches, but have delivered in excellent quality in their automatic timepieces time after time. This classic two-tone automatic watch, part of Invicta's Pro Diver series is a classic and contemporary watch which has excellent water resistance, brilliant illumination, so you could see the time easily in the dark, a simple unidirectional bezel and a brilliant two-tone finish. This is one of those watches that absolutely looks great, and delivers well, has a good power reserve, around 40 hours so if you do not wear it after a day and a half. This is a lovely timepiece for any watch collector, if you are looking for a nice watch, without all the hooplas of having a new battery time after time. This is a great watch from Invicta, and worth the money and time.

4.0 out of 5 stars The First Female #1, August 24, 2014
This review is from: Whitney (MP3 Music)
There is no question of today's female singers, most of them have let their voices die and fade away like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce' Knowles and Rihanna, and definitely the quality of a voice has sincerely died and faded away. But of voices that sincerely have shown to speak for themselves, Whitney Houston's has been the top tier of artists that have sincerely came from the heart. She broke records long and wide with her near 30 years in the industry, won over 400 awards and is in The Guiness Book Of World Records as the most-awarded female artist of all time. When she broke out with her first record, it left a whole nation in shock knowing how brilliant and beautiful a woman can sincerely sing from the heart. Yet, it sadly has been 2 years since Whitney passed on, and her body of work has been marred by how much people chose to remember her as "The Crack Is Whack Girl", not even recognizing her gift as a human being.

In 2010, her debut record was re-released with beauty and a real re-introduction to a simplicity of a gifted individual. Whitney Houston's sophmore album is just as important to her legacy, becoming the first album by a female singer to debut at #1. What Elton John did first in 1975, Whitney did for all female artists in 1987. The songs here have been remastered in stride and include great songs that still stand the test of time like I Wanna Dance With Somebody, the elequent Where Do Broken Hearts Go, the driven So Emotional and a sultry cover of The Isley brothers hit For The Love Of You. The songs here are just as dynamic as what made "The Voice" so beautiful. Each song takes you back to a time when music has been un-fashionable by pop trends, and not a sincere voice that truly came from the heart.

Overall, it is never possible to celebrate someone's life, when being reminded of their passing. Whitney passed on in 2012, but it seems here, her heart is still a voice that will never deliver with a generation that has shown to be more of trash than sincere majesty. If it weren't for Whitney Houston, there would be no Jennifer Hudson, no Beyonce' Knowles or Katy Perry. Whitney Houston's Whitney is a definite must have for anyone who have never even heard a song from her before, and are just knowing whom she has been in loss. I have always loved her work from beginning to end and each album is pure heart. Whitney is definitely a must buy.
