Say Say Say (Radio Edit / 2015 Remix)
Say Say Say (Radio Edit / 2015 Remix)
Price: $1.29

4.0 out of 5 stars Said, Said, Said, May 29, 2016
There are some songs that people have forgotten from a legend like Paul McCartney. Hard to believe that it is the 45th anniversary of his solo career, after he and The Beatles broke up. But musically, his solo songs are just as strong and dominant as they were back in the 70's, and the 80's. But his solo work is still just as exciting. Last year, Paul re-released his two solo albums in the 80's, Tug Of War and Pipes Of Peace. With that, last year a lot of great song were re-released like Ebony & Ivory with Stevie Wonder, and a remix of his acclaimed duet with Michael Jackson, Say Say Say. The song remixed isn't bad, but doesn't have the kind of longevity as the original song did since 1983. Still, it is a good song, and doesn't overpower the original version, but it doesn't ignite at the soul for newcomers to Paul legendary music. Still, it isn't a bad remix, and a treat for die hard Paul McCartney fans all over. Maybe more should've been said to say, say, say.

ThreatTrack Security VIPRE Antivirus 2016
ThreatTrack Security VIPRE Antivirus 2016
Price: $39.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Security Starter, May 28, 2016
There are just so many different antivirus and brands of security software on the market, and unfortunately there are some that can be good, and others that can be more of a hassle in the dollars overall. I have used so many different brands of security software, while there are some that have worked very well like Bitdefender, there are others that are just about the brand name, and not about the protection anymore like Norton or McAfee. But either way, trying to find the best security software, is more like a needle in a haystack. I have also tried the security software Vipre, and honestly I was very surprised at how well it does work not only getting rid of those pesky bits of malware and Trojans, but how very speedy it was in the process, where so many other brands of software take up more space on the hard drive, and limit you from really installing new versions of software needed. Yet, there is one downside with the Vipre 1 PC 1 year subscription. You really do not get more for your money on 1 computer alone. There are versions that really do offer lifetime subscriptions for the life of the computer, without a lot of faults. It would be wiser to go for one of those, if you feel you're going to have the computer for many years, and just want one for your money.. Also, there are better versions more compatible in price and value on other sites like HSN that give more bang for the buck. But this is a nice sampler for anyone that wants to get into Vipre for the first time, and see what really makes a smart security software tick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loyalty App Saver, May 27, 2016
This review is from: CardStar for Android (App)
These days, we are honestly using our smartphones and tablets for all of our everyday use. But out of all of them, we really do not see just how important it is to find what is really the best apps that are need for convenience, especially for when we do go shopping. Well, there are so many different apps for our grocery and specialty shopping needs, but honestly trying to find the best one is more like finding a needle out of a haystack. There are just so many apps out there, where there is no convenience for if you have so many cards. If you honestly one app for all of those loyalty cards, well this is a nice app to download. CardStar for Android smartphones and tablets, is one that actually works by having you manually install all your store loyalty cards into one simple app for all your purchases, wherever you go. Unfortunately, you can either scan the cards on the app, or you can enter them manually and they will be in one simple space. It is a noble app woryh checking out, but there are some that don't feel the need to store of their security cards for better checkouts, and lower prices.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Office, One Mac, May 27, 2016
There is absolutely no question that Microsoft has decided to limit the methods that we do use Microsoft Office the past few years, and so many people have chosen to go onto Microsoft Office 365. While that has been a noble effort, there are some that would just feel a bit more secure having one piece of software, rather than paying out a subscription fee for the money for Microsoft Office. There is one that has been obligated for Windows PC's where you can use it with one PC, and there is also one for Mac computers that would be more of a buy for the basics. Microsoft Office Home & Student For Mac would work better for those that do not want to be forced out to shell out a subscription fee which would cost more than what it is worth. The basics from Excel, Word and others are here, and the software handles very nicely. It is very simple to navigate and easy to understand from the simple interfaces, to trying to change types with Word from New Roman, to sharper italics. I think it works just as well as Office 365, and shows that if all you need is one for the money in you apple computer, than I would recommend you get this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yellow Brick Matching Road, May 26, 2016
This review is from: Wizard of Oz: Magic Match (App)
There is no question that ever since Candy Crush Saga came out a few years ago, there have been so many people whom have wanted to try and recreate the same magic that the classic app game had for several years, but honestly there have been so many games that have been more of a bust than anything organic enough to make more magic out of a winning game. But when I did hear that Hollywood was going to make a knockoff game based upon the movie The Wizard Of Oz, I did think that it was going to be interested to see whether or not it would work. But overall, it is a nice concept to see if it could fly. The Wizard Of Oz: Magic Match, takes on the gameplay that games before like Bejeweled and Candy Crush Saga, but it doesn't actually impress in the way that other games have done before. It does work though for die hard fans of The Wizard Of Oz, and has good visionaries of the film from Judy Garland and company. It is a nice download if you want a alternative to other matching games, or if you've been a die hard fan of the movie. I do suggest you give this one a try.

(Love Is Like A) Heatwave (Live) [2016 Remastered]
Price: $1.29

4.0 out of 5 stars Live Heat, May 25, 2016
There is absolutely no question about Phil Collins and the status of his own music. When world had came out that he was coming out of retirement and singing live again, there has been just so much hype about his catalog again, but seeing his music have a new appreciation on a era that has been so much in tune with joke singers that have lagged at the soul, and showed they are not sincere from the heart. When Phil made the decision to re-release Going Back, he chose instead to make it a trimmed re-release, feeling more conflicted with a deluxe version and a single version being released in 2010. Hearing Phil return for a brief time back in 2010 also was tough on him, considering he was told at one point he could no longer play the drums again, after a accident in the studio while making Going Back. His live rendition of (Love Is Like A) Heatwave, isn't that bad, and showed that Phil had the soul to thrive on, despite his pain in the other direction. The live rendition from 2010 wasn't bad, but not as strong as when Phil had recorded and performed live earlier in his career. But it still is all Phil, and a nice treat for die hard fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Money Earner, May 25, 2016
This review is from: Receipt Hog (App)
It seems as if these days, we all throw our receipts away for garbage. But honestly, these days it has been more of a throwaway that really doesn't have any value. But there is a new app that can help turn your old receipts into gold where you can earn either store credit for Amazon.com, or get money earner back through Paypal. when I had heard about Receipt Hog, I personally thought it would be more of a gimmick, than anything that is worth the while. But every receipt that you redeem whether it is at a gas station or your local pharmacy, you can get points toward Amazon credits with each receipt you save. You just simply upload a receipt and take a snapshot from your smartphone, Android tablet or Ipod. What I like about this is that it can accept any receipt from anywhere, just as long as it is within 2 weeks of the purchase date. The more receipts you save, the more you earn. While I do like it, unfortunately, it can be rough to verify small business receipts, unlike the larger franchise shops. Still, it does make it worth the while. If you need a little extra money to go around for Amazon or Paypal, I sincerely recommend you have this app for your smartphone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Timid Roar, May 25, 2016
This review is from: Dangerous Woman (MP3 Music)
There is absolutely no question that today's female artists have more of a whimper in the whole voice and seduction, to where they haven't been able to drive in their voices they way that artists used to. Unfortunately, for Ariana Grande, she has not been able to drive in her work the way that she wanted to before, by trying to be more seductive in her songs. But honestly, she hasn't really put her song choices in the best interest to where her voice can actually make stronger strides. The past several songs that I had heard from her from Focus and Bang Bang were so poorly inspiring, still shows she is like a church choir performer, that doesn't feel like she was inspiring and raised the roof for everyone to feel joyous over. Dangerous Woman is another one where she is trying to show a more sexual side. Unfortunately, she turns the listener off overall, because she overdoes it to make more shrills than seduction. I found this song to be very poor. Perhaps when she grows up in her sound, she can feel more dangerous than timid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Starter Cell Phone, May 24, 2016
These days with cell phones constantly changing, it has been more of a must to keep up with the times. For smartphones, it isn't just the cell phone you are honestly buying, it is also the cell p[hone plan, even when you are going to a unlocked phone. I have loved what Tracfone had done with their cell phone plans overall in regards to their price, their convenience, and their playback. But overall, it is also about the reliability. I love the fact that they have made so many of their prepaid phones, with offering triple the service, every time you really use it. But it is also the kind of phone you do go get for the money. ZTE has made some decent phones, and some beginner phones for the money. Their ZTE Valet is a nice beginners' smartphone, but honestly isn't that fast or strong to come into the play if you are trying to upload a movie, or read your local paper online. It is a nice beginner's cell phone in price and compatibility, but overall Tracfone is starting to get more faster 4G LTE phones right now from LG and Samsung that are worth checking out. But if this is your first smartphone, and if you are getting a Tracfone prepaid cell phone and its plan, this is a nice one to start off with.

The Show Must Go On
The Show Must Go On

4.0 out of 5 stars Her Show Must Go On, May 24, 2016
This review is from: The Show Must Go On (MP3 Music)
The past few years have been extremely difficult for Celine Dion. Professionally she had put her show in Las Vegas on hold for a little while so she could redeem herself. But personally, she was deeply strugling in her life, with the deaths of two of her men in her life, both of her family members, her brother and her soulmate and husband Rene Angeil died tragically from cancer. It really took a toll on her. But also her music had not been doing as well to the success of sales that she had in the 90's and the 2000's with her personal status. But now with a lot of loss, Celien has to come back from the verge of massive destruction. Her comeback single, a take on Queen's The Show Must Go On, their final song with the great Freddie Mercury actually works for her well, and places the power ballad in her voice and heart in hand nicely with not a lot of strains overall. There have been so many artists whom had covered the song and paid respects to Freddie nicely with that song before Celine, like Elton John whom remembered Freddie shortly after her lost his life to AIDS in 1991, and it worked brilliantly. But for Celine, the song takes on a deep soul from her, and doesn't show to be overbearing from where she loses herself in soul and song. This works very well from Celine and compliments a lot of cover songs she had done before like Cyndi Lauper's I Drove All Night or Herat's Alone from Taking Chances in 2007. If you are a massive fan of Celine Dion, than I suggest you download this song.

Song: B+
