5.0 out of 5 stars The Scents of Home, April 27, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These smell great. I enjoy scenting our home, we're always lighting candles and using air fresheners. These are strong enough to perceive the smells (we use them in a space approx. 15x15'), but at the same time are not too overbearing to the senses. We like the "sugar cookie" and "hot apple pie" scents in particular. Because it's a pack of five scents and you use a relatively small amount of the product each time, they should last quite a while.


The Hunt: The Outcome Is Never Certain
The Hunt: The Outcome Is Never Certain
by Alastair Fothergill
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $31.17

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hunt - companion book to the BBC nature documentary series., April 24, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am a big fan of nature documentaries, and nobody does it better than the BBC: if you've seen "Planet Earth", "Seas of Life", or "Frozen Planet", then you'd likely agree. After reading this book and seeing the images within, I'm very excited to watch "The Hunt" television series which the text is based on.

The book examines predators and prey. This aspect of life has been covered in previous BBC series, but "The Hunt" goes in-depth into this one very interesting topic. A variety of species are covered, from the big cats and birds of prey to insects and microscopic sea life. It's interesting how complex the hunting process is for some of these animals - some spend a lot of time watching their prey and learning their habits/schedule; other species cooperate as a team and then share the prize. Equally as interesting is how animals have evolved physical and psychological features that give them a better chance of surviving encounters with predators.

The book's subtitle, "The Outcome is Never Certain", very much comes into play - failure is more likely than success for the predators. The large cats on the African plains, which include lions and cheetahs, fail to catch their prey a majority of the time. In fact, they expel so much energy in pursuit of prey that the decision to pursue is not taken lightly -- they have to pick their prey carefully as to not waste energy on something with little chance of success. It reading through the book, you appreciate just how privileged the modern human species is to avoid the whole predator/prey situation.

The final portion of the book tells you how the very talented crew of camera operators and other technicians were able to capture such stunning footage for the BBC production. The camera are incredibly complicated, some with extremely long lenses so that the team is able to get footage from far away without disturbing the animals or the scenario. The camera are mounted to everything from a tripod, to a specially-rigged vehicle, to the back of an elephant. It's incredibly fascinating to see the lengths the crew will go to get these amazing images for all of us to see.

If you enjoy nature, and are specifically interested in the predator-prey relationship, then don't hesitate to read this - it's one of my favorite books this year.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The speaker sounds excellent. I tested this with a few pieces of music that I know well, plus some old movies that had mono audio tracks. For the audio that was familiar to me, it sounded as crisp and clear as it ever has on anything. Unfortunately I was only provided one single speaker for review so I was unable to test the stereo aspects of the sound. Everything sounds pretty good, and I'd the effect would be compounded once you have two of them. It really is essential to have two if you are planning to do any serious mixing with these, so I plan to pick up another one for my setup, and will amend this review with additional details at that point.

The back of the unit has a variety of inputs (including XLR), and there are knobs to adjust the sound levels as well. Build quality is clearly nice; and it will good good as part of your professional or home studio.

Let me stress how important it is to have studio monitors in your mixing setup. If you are a professional then you already know this, but film/music/video producers looking to get started should invest in a quality pair of monitors to ensure that your projects actually sound the way you intend them to sound. They don't have to necessarily be the most expensive, you can spend under $400 and will have a very capable set of monitors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Air Hogs Batmobile Remote Control Vehicle, April 18, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Whether you enjoyed Batman v Superman or not, if you're a fan of Batman then you likely enjoyed seeing a new version of the Batmobile. This RC vehicle, based on the Batmobile from the new film, is sufficient for providing fun. It looks great as a scale model; it performs okay as an remote control vehicle.

My only gripe is that the car flips quite easily when hitting a bump (the weight is well distributed and it's not top-heavy, but I guess it's so light overall that it doesn't hold up well with any impact). It also makes a bit of noise, but no more than the average RC vehicle that I've used.

Overall, it's a nicely crafted model for the price point; a moderate quality scale replica of a well-designed and sharp-looking vehicle. And it really makes me want to find a remote control model of the Tumbler from the Dark Knight trilogy - now that would be fun!

This is a nice pair of in-ear headphones that is well-built, lightweight and very comfortable.

AUDIO QUALITY: 4/5
Overall, the sound quality is very good. I have watched several movies with these headphones and listened to a few of my favorite music playlists... no complaints. The over-ear design helps block external noise.

COMFORT: 5/5
The comfort of the headphones is excellent. I think In-ear headphones are more comfortable than over-ear headphones. The earbuds come in various size and are interchangeable, so you can find the one that best fits your ears.

COMPATIBILITY: 4/5
The headphones connect to almost any device via a 3.5mm audio jack. I tested with by iPhone 5S and iPad Air, and it worked flawlessly with both. A lack of volume control is a bit of a downer for those used to the convenience of that feature.

DURABILITY: 4/5
These headphones appear to be well-made and very durable. Earbuds like this are typically quite fragile in general, so you'll want to be careful using them.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There are times when you'd like to clean up a bit but you're not able to shower or wash your face. That's where these Cetaphil face cloths come in. These are really great for cleaning the face in the middle of the day. I do a lot of nature photography, and sometimes there's a bit of dirt and sweat involved -- so I use one of these to freshen up when I get back to my car.

The cloths are one-time use and come pre-moistened in the package. They are larger than I thought they'd be, comparable in size to a typical wash cloth. There are 25 in a pack, so it will last nearly a month if you use one a day - in fact, I'd recommend using it up in that time or you risk the remaining wipes drying out over time.

Beautiful wedding card, it's high quality, durable, and looks nice. As usual with cards that use glitter, you can expect a small amount to come off on your hands etc. The message inside is classy and heartfelt.

Great set of microfiber dish towels. They are high quality and absorb a lot of water. The design of the towels is also outstanding, just what we needed for our kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hoover WindTunnel 3 Vacuum, March 25, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I previously owned a few of the Hoover WindTunnel vacuums, they are very high quality products and we rely on them to keep the house clean. We have a dog that sheds a lot, and the WindTunnel series always takes care of the pet hair. This model, the WindTunnel 3, is every bit as good as its predecessors.

Features of this vacuum:
- Relatively light yet durable, will be easy to handle/maneuver for most people.
- Works great with thick carpet and easily picks up pet hair.
- For the hard-to-reach areas, an extension attachment is included. There is also an attachment for furniture.
- All dust/dirt is captured in a canister, which is easy to remove and empty. The filter can also be washed (although you should replace it once a year for best results).
