3.0 out of 5 stars Small and Silent: More Appropriate for Granny than a Big Honking Man With a Hair Chest Who Hunts Bears for a Living & likes Tea, January 29, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's great looking... (PRO). CONS - however. 1) it's TINY. I mean TINY. The picture is deceptive, so measure it out... it's really for a small teapot - perhaps tea for two... but not a big amount of water. I like to not only boil water for tea but also have enough left over to be able to heat up a thermos. This is not enough for that. Second CON - the whistle is not loud at all. This is more appropriate for a granny or little old ladies social at the local diner than for a big honking macho man like me. I have a very hairy chest and hunt bears for a living, and when I want tea I want to make it with a man-sized tea kettle. (Not really). But seriously it's a good kettle but too small and too silent. And it's so cheap that it's not worth returning to Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Click (and Yes It Matters), January 16, 2016
Hard to click. I know it sounds whiney. The mouse is hard to click. But, I have suffered with carpal tunnel's issues and have learned (the hard way) that the little things matter a great deal on computer. So compared with the 'classic' white Microsoft mouse that has been discontinued, this guy is too hard to click.

Seems silly but when all you do all day is click and click and click and click and click and click and click and click and... sooner or later your fingers are going to hurt.

It's also BIG and TALL and awkward. So not at all a good, cheap replacement for the original classic Microsoft mouse if you are looking for a corded USB mouse. Sigh... why do they discontinue classics?

2.0 out of 5 stars Be Careful: Read the Directions Cuz There Ain't No Goin' Back, January 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I deal with technology on a daily basis, and I am good with computers. Here's the scoop on this product. First and foremost, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS - you have to go to the Logitech website and DOWNLOAD their software. In today's computer world, I generally assume everything is "plug and play" and I don't have to go "install software" or anything else so 1999. But in this case: YES YOU DO.

That took me about 1/2 an hour to figure out, and I felt like the proverbial male who was unwilling to ask for directions. Except that I am and I do (except now we have GPS and WAZE and who uses directions any more and when the satellites go down because of a North Korean attack, all of America will be lost (except for the Google cars, which will begin randomly crashing into each other)). But I digress - READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.

Ok, that's step one. Then it actually works. Yeah! OOPS, I installed it on my laptop as a test... and I don't need it on my laptop.

Guess what: it DISABLES your older non-compatible Logitech receivers and these puppies are NOT cheap. So, just FYI, once you install this software you are stuck. I de-installed the software and NOPE, my mouse no longer works with the older receiver. So I'm too busy to debug this mess - just be aware that once you go forward to this device, you ain't going back.

THREE - these puppies are NOT cheap. They're like $16.95 when the devices themselves might be $25 - $30. So it's a kind of a rip off for Logitech to charge so much for them, and then SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE (just like Gomer Pile (if you're under forty - Google it)), it deactivates all your older devices, so SURPRISE SURPRISE SUPRISE you have to buy more of these puppies.

So I ain't a happy camper about this. Oh, and guess what - check the "so-called" return policy because you can't send it back. No refunds, no exchanges, so this is sort of a scam in my humble opinion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read the Shoe Description Carefully, December 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Shoe does not fit the same as the product it replaced. It is very plastic and rigid. In addition, there are issues with the description posted of the product - read it very carefully as you know who is blocking me from saying you don't know what about the shoe and the related how you get it procedures. Pay attention to who fulfills the order. It's bad enough that the shoe itself has issues; it's worse that Big Brother isn't allowing a truly honest discussion of this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for the Resurrection but Stay for the Logic, December 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Being a huge fan of Bishop Robert Barron on YouTube, I turned to this book for a specific issue: what is the historical evidence not only that Jesus lived but that He was resurrected? In addition, I wanted something that wasn't written from the perspective of theology but from a more neutral, historical stance. Furthermore, I wanted a book that wasn't a 900 page academic treatise but a book that a layperson could read, easily, and get an overview to the historiography.

AN OVERVIEW TO THE HISTORIOGRAPHY

This book fulfilled that role. Whether you accept its evidence or not hinges a) on your own religious perspective and open mindedness, and b) whether you accept the veracity of many of the early writings of Christianity. Not being an expert, I can't really reach a firm conclusion on "b." The authors are clearly fervent Christians, but they do an admirable job of leaving their beliefs aside and resting their survey to the facts and the historiography.

The book is an excellent overview to the logic and argument in favor of the resurrection. If you're curious or you've ever wondered whether there is any evidence... this is an excellent choice.

AN EXPOSE ON LOGIC

What I found surprising and enjoyable, however, was the writers' expose on logic. If x is true, then y is true. If a is not true, then b cannot be true - etc. The discussion of historical logic, above and apart from the Resurrection, was eye-opening. It made me think - a lot - about how I apply logic to my own understanding of "reality," whether a scientific theory (e.g., evolution) or a historical theory (e.g., that Christ was resurrected).

For that alone, the book is worthy of the read. Did Jesus live? Was he resurrected? This book is not only a good survey of the evidence and arguments but also a wonderful adventure in logic. Read it, and you decide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tips on How To Insert Them Properly: Quiet Time can be Anytime., December 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When you do NOT want to hear what's going on - THESE puppies are the BEST puppies to put in your ears. 1) They are made of the best, most amazing material. How good is it? Well, it's soooooo good that when they swapped it out for some cheaper stuff a few years back, lovers of these ear plugs like yours truly, complained so vociferously and loudly (ha, ha), that they swapped it back. AND their packaging for a while had to say: made with the original material. 2) I have tried like 16 different types of ear plugs, and these are by far the best I have ever used. Don't be fooled by cheap imitations, nor by the decibel level.

Once you buy them, the trick is to insert them correctly. (SPOILER ALERT - read on, only if you're not easily grossed out).

TIPS ON HOW TO INSERT THEM

1) Take the ear plug and, while spinning it, compress it into a small cylinder.
2) Pull down slightly on your ear plug, so that it opens your ear canal.
3) Insert the compressed ear plug. It's VERY important that it be COMPRESSED!!!!!

As it expands - bye bye subway noise, airplane noise, snorring, kids' singing, loud TV, dog barking or whatever is annoying you.

Another tip: do NOT reuse them. If you do, you may encourage nasty ear aches. So I have these as ONE TIME use only, and I am a frequent user.

(I am very noise sensitive).
