I am very happy with this purchase. It has extended the life of my G4 desktop. I am getting 5.4 Mbps download speed and 1 Mbps upload speed. Couldn't ask for anything more from an original Airport card. Arrived in excellent condition (actually looked like a new card) and has worked flawlessly ever since. Well worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars How interesting....., May 1, 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
...that they are releasing the final episode on DVD just a few days after it airs. Not that I am complaining...I just never saw this before. I am a huge Friends fan and I look forward to this special release. For those that are still wondering if all 10 seasons will be released, well, they will be. If you need immediate proof, click the 'United Kingdom' link at the bottom of your Amazon.com page. Then, search for 'Friends' DVD. You'll see that 9 seasons have already been released. Great news for ALL Friends fans. By the way, 2 million dollars per 30 second spot during the final episode? Hmm...I wonder if they'd accept credit cards.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Is a review really necessary?, May 22, 2003
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cheers: Season 1 (DVD)
I'm not going to bore you with my usual long, technical review. I'm not going to bore you with a review of a television series that speaks for itself. What I will do is say this....in a nutshell, there is absolutely NO REASON for you NOT to buy this DVD. If you are a fan of Cheers, the first minute of watching Episode One, you will be watching with your mouth opened...literally...like I did. From the beautiful stereo sound of the theme music, to the vibrant colors of the remastered film (especially if you have a component set-up), you will be filled with "wow" and "oh my gosh" as you step back in time. This DVD package is a MUST BUY for any fan of Cheers. Just be warned about one thing, the episodes are not in the order in which they were aired for some strange reason. Other then that, step back to a time when TV was at its absolute perfection...and step into a place where everybody knows your name. Enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy cow! Mac OS X users, your book has arrived!, March 19, 2002
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mac OS X Unleashed (Paperback)
When I received this book from amazon.com, the only thing that initially crossed my mind was, "How many trees had to be cut down to print all these pages!?"

This has got to be the most complete book to date ever written covering the new Mac operating system and it's UNIX based programming. At first, I thought this book was strictly for the "power user." I was happy to see that the first 11 Chapters (about 500 pages), were focused on the beginner and advanced user. After Chapter 11, the book gets increasingly more advanced and caters to the "power user."

This book is a must have for every OS X user. It covers everything! This may be the only book in your library that wouldn't be blown away in a hurricane. If you have any questions or problems in OS X, the odds that this book would have information and a fix for it would be very high.

If this book seems intimidating to beginners, you may want to read my other review on 'another' OS X book.

If you have the time (and the guts), buy this amazing book...we'll ALL be programming in UNIX in no time! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Trust me - BUY THIS BOOK - A pleasure to read!, March 19, 2002
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been using Mac computers since 1986. For the past 8 years, I have been editing films and videos professionally on Apple's top-of-the-line Macs, from System 8 to the current OS 10.1.

David Pogue has written a book that takes the anxiety out of switching to a brand new operating system. I consider myself a professional Mac user, and still this book was not only educational, but extremely informative and pleasing to read. The graphic examples and writing style will make the beginner as well as the advanced user happy they purchased this.

The book never 'talks down; to the reader. Instead, David Pogue brings the reader inside the Mac, showing us how the new OS thinks, and how it is now easier and more fun then ever to work on a Macintosh.

Many people not familiar with OS X do not realize how advanced and how sophisticated an operating system it is. "The Missing Manual" covers OS 10.1 and is an excellent introduction to the new operating system, and an excellent presentation. I love having OS X on my Macintosh....Don't forget to "Think Different" and give this book a well-deserved look. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Famous - What were YOU doing when you were 15?, March 15, 2001
This review is from: Almost Famous (DVD)
Myself, like many others, counted down the days until March 13th arrived. Cameron Crowes "Almost Famous" has reassured me that this talanted director creates films unlike all others. There is always SOMETHING unique about every movie this man has been a part of. With Almost Famous, I had a constant 2-hour smile on my face, at the same time remembering a bunch of adolescent memories like my first girlfriend, my first kiss, the first time I got to experience real freedom away from home. And I am sure I'm not alone here, because what made this film so wonderful is that it has provoked similar memories in those that saw this wonderful film. OK, let's talk about this DVD. As soon as I received mine, I immediately looked on the back for the 'extra features.' Let me make this clear before I start my review, there is NO COMMENTARY and there is NO 30 MINUTES OF EXTRA FOOTAGE. From what I hear, Cameron Crowe was too busy working on his next film to spend time on this DVD release. So, I'm expecting a FUTURE release of this film with all those extras many of us were hoping for. However, I DO recommend getting this DVD in its current state, because simply, it's just a GREAT film! OK...NOW back to the DVD. I opened the case up and was introduced to an attractive looking DVD with a picture of the cast on the DVD. The pamphlet inside is nothing special. It has 3 behind-the-scenes photos and a little background on the making of the film. It also has chapter listings. I popped the DVD into my player and was pleasantly surprised by the menu design, very easy navigation with eye popping moving menus and colors, all displayed with the background music of Stillwater. The 'main menu' has a choice of 'special features', 'scene index', 'audio options' and 'subtitles'. Under 'special features', you have the choice of watching an HBO special on the making of Almost Famous, the theatrical trailer and the "Fever Dog" music video. You can also view production notes, cast and crew biographies and Rolling Stone articles written by the director. The "Making Of" special is a nice look into the film, with interviews by many cast members. Nothing we haven't seen before, but still nice to have. The "Fever Dog" video is pretty bad. Yes, it contains a few cuts not seen in the film, but 3/4 of it seems out of sync. (I'm an editor, I notice stuff like this). The whole video resembled an old 'Godzilla' TV show after a while....oh well. The 'scene index' is wonderful. It has a title for each scene and moving menus which create a very attractive screen. You have 3 'audio options'. DTS Digital Surround, 5.1 Dolby Digital and 2.0 Dolby Digital. You also have a choice of having English 'subtitles' on or off. My favorite 'special feature' were the articles written by Cameron Crowe. Reading these articles makes you realize what a terrific writer Cameron Crowe is, and how much of a pleasure it must be to read his scripts. OK....now to the technical stuff about the movie. I was very VERY impressed with this beautiful anamorphic widescreen transfer. The cinematography in this film is wonderful. Colors are beautifully rendered, blacks are rich and the concert footage is gorgeous. No complaints about picture quality, it is excellent. The audio is also wonderful. Although the dialogue is pretty much center channeled, the movie sounds far from monaural. Ambience sounds are surrounding and the music is outstanding. If you watch this on a surround system, the concert footage will envelope your ears and bring you right into the show. I was even impressed with the audio on a 2 speaker system. Your subwoofer will kick in during the concert footage, other then that, this film is not one to test your system out. Having the dialogue strictly centered makes the concert footage EXPLODE! The sound design is terrific, clean, clear and beautifully recorded. (Yes, I found myself singing Tiny Dancer.....again!) In conclusion, Almost Famous is one of my favorite films from the past few years. It's full of emotion and PERFECTLY casted with wonderful performance from all involved. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this DVD. I give the film 5 stars, but the DVD loses a star for lacking the footage we were all hoping for. Go get this DVD if you want to smile for 2 hours straight. You'll find that you can't help but relive those early-teen memories while watching this film. If you ARE a teen, trust me, you'll still enjoy this movie. If you are of the older generation, who knows......I think you may love this film! You'll laugh, cry and go through all the emotions a Cameron Crowe movie brings out of us. Enjoy Almost Famous....and oh yeah...."Don't do drugs!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Seven-A disturbing and entertaining DVD, January 3, 2001
In 1995, Director David Fincher joined Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt in
the years most disgusting, tense and talked about films. Seven is a
look into a persons liking for gore and blood, all done through the
theme of the 7 deadly sins. Unlike Fight Club, another Fincher film,
Seven was made right before the DVD format was introduced. The
initial release of Seven on DVD was less then spectacular. The New
Line Platinum series is visually one of the most stunning releases to
come along in a while. Sonically, this release will surround you with
sound elements of such clarity and depth, it may seem too real at
times. The 2 disc package is similar to the Fight Club package. It
has two nicely designed discs in an attractive package. The menu
design on the discs are very impressive. What may seem confusing at
first becomes quickly understandable and easy to navigate throughout.
Disc 1 has the movie along with commentary by David Fincher, Morgan
Freeman and Brad Pitt. It also has commentary by the Screenwriter,
the Editor, a Professor of Film Studies and the new Line President of
Production. These commentaries are very insightful, informative and
entertaining to listen to. The scene selections are nice, shown with
still pictures and a title of each sequence. Disc 1 also has a simple
'color bars' setup. Picture quality of this movie is outstanding to
say the least, especially if you compare this release with the
previous DVD release. The original negative was used this time, and
the darkness of this film has never looked so incredibly clear.
Contrast and colors are beautiful...not too saturated for this type of
film, but quite stunning. Sharpness is well executed throughout the
film and I found it hard to see any grain or dirt on the picture.
This is obviously a first class transfer and the anamorphic widescreen
picture is superb. Sound quality is even more amazing. When you go
to your setup in the menu, you have a choice of English or French
subtitles. You also have a choice of stereo Surround Sound, Dolby EX
Surround Sound or DTS ES Surround Sound. Whatever type of system you
have, this film shines. If you have a surround system with a great
subwoofer, you will not believe your ears. This film has been rebuilt
from the ground up and remixed for DVD. Effects elements and
atmospheric sound effects will simply blow your mind. Dialogue is
clean and clear. The sound department responsible for this soundtrack
should be applauded. They did a superb job. Disc 2 has a bunch of
extras that will keep you busy for quite a while. The first extra on
the disc is an "exploration of the opening title sequence."
You get to choose from different angles and different audio options
while watching this sequence. You can watch an early storyboard
drawing of the title sequence, a rough version of the opening and the
final version of the opening title sequence. You can choose from a
surround mix, a Dolby EX mix that was made just for this DVD, or a
high quality 24bit/96Khz stereo mix. It's amazing how many options
you get to pick from just to watch something about the opening title
sequence! You can also listen to commentary by designer Kyle Cooper
or the Sound Engineers Brent Biles and Robert Margouleff. Wow! The
next pick on Disc 2 is where you get to see "Deleted Scenes"
and "Extended Takes" from the film, all with or without
David Finchers commentary. There are seven scenes to choose from and
are all fascinating to watch while listening to the commentary. The
next pick on Disc 2 are the "Alternate Endings." You have
your choice of the original "test" ending with or without
David Finchers commentary. You also can look at an animated
storyboard of an unshot ending. This was done really well and both
offer subtle differences and insight into the ending that is in the
film. Next, you can look at a bunch of Production Design stills with
commentary. This was also done very well, considering how amazing the
Production Design really is for this film. You next have choices of a
bunch of other still photographs from the film, including John Doe's
photographs, Victor's decomposition, police crime scene photographs
and production photographs. These come all with commentary, and this
is the first disc where I actually enjoyed still photos on a
DVD....very well done. Another choice you have on Disc 2 is called
'The Notebooks." This is a very informative sequence of stills
with commentary on how those infamous notebooks were created. When
you choose "Promotional Materials," you can watch the
theatrical EPK or the movie trailer. As with most DVD's, you can
choose "Filmographies" where you can see the resume's of all
the actors and many crew members. Finally, for all you technical
people out there, you can choose "Mastering for the Home
Theatre." This is a fantastic look into the film to video
transfer of Seven, as well as the color correcting, telecine, audio
mastering and mixing of Seven for the theatre as well as the remixing
for the DVD. All are played with scenes from the film comparing the
last release and this release of Seven. The commentary is both
educational and entertaining to listen to. In conclusion, Seven is a
must have DVD. Picture quality is outstanding. Audio quality is
fantastic, and the extras are wonderful. If you loved Seven in the
movies, or want to replace your old DVD release with this one, buy
Seven and prepare yourself for 2 hours of amazement. If you are a
lover of crime thrillers then get this disc. If you enjoy Morgan
Freeman, Brad Pitt or David Fincher then get this disc. It would be a
sin NOT to get this DVD! Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars This Is Spinal Tap - Defining the "Rockumentary", November 11, 2000
I always compared Spinal Tap to a fine wine....the longer you let it age, the better it will taste. Watching this DVD proves my rather silly comparison. This film is so funny, and with the addition of over an hour of footage, this Spinal Tap DVD provides an overwhelming amount of laughter. I find this film funnier now then when I first saw it over 10 years ago. Marty DiBergi (Rob Reiner aka "Meathead") is back with his rockumentary classic in the digital medium. The graphic design on the package and disc itself is simple.....it's black. I'm sure the members of Spinal Tap approved this color since you can't get any more black then this. The inner pamphlet contains updates on the members of Spinal Tap, including a "Drummer Necrology" of all the drummers that died throughout the years. A funny little read, but I always seem to want more from an inner pamphlet! I popped in the DVD and immediately started to laugh. As the main menu started to load, the band started talking about the menu. You really have to listen to it to understand, but if you are slow at deciding what you are going to choose, the band members have plenty to say to ammuse you while you decide. Anyway, the choices you have are "Scene Selections", which has a very impressive graphical design. Scenes are numbered and each one has a picture and description. You have a choice of French or Spanish subtitles while listening to the band chatter brainlessly about what a subtitle is! Your final choice from the main menu is "Special Features." You can watch the film with audio commentary by the band which is really funny because the bands IQ seems to have decreased throughout the years! You also have a recent interview with Marty DiBergi, and you can watch over 1 hour of rare outtakes which are hysterical! You can click "Vintage Material" and watch the 'Flower People' press conference and the 'Joe Franklin Show' with the band. You will find yourself laughing again and again! You have the choice of watching 4 music videos including "Gimme Some Money", "Flower People", "Hell Hole", and "Big Bottom". You have a button titled "Promotional Materials" where you can watch the theatrical trailer, 3 TV spots and a few other funny trailers and commercials. The final button titled "Commercials" has all 3 "Rock & Rolls" spots....all silly, all funny. So I started to watch the film and a smile came to my face as Marty DiBergi introduces us to his film. The new digital transfer is fairly clean. Dirt and grain is noticeable sometimes during the film, but for this feature you really can't complain. The picture is sharp and surpasses any previous release. The colors, especially during the concert footage are also a noticeable improvement over any previous release. This DVD transfer is the best version of Spinal Tap you will find. The picture is far from poor and will be pleasing to most viewers. There is no choice of audio formats on this DVD, but the sound was fairly clean. It sounds great on 2 speaker set-ups and of course sounds better on surround sound set-ups. The production track is dated, but overall pleasing for this type of film. The dated production track will not at all affect the overall experience of the film. It still sounded acceptably clean. The music track sounds like it has been improved, sounding much cleaner then the production track, and opening up in ambiance and atmosphere a great deal during concert scenes. In conclusion, if you are a fan of this film, the music, the craziness and silliness, then this release of "This is Spinal Tap" is a MUST HAVE DVD. The menu design and navigation are excellent, and the technical aspects of the disc are quite pleasing. "This is Spinal Tap" is a very funny and entertaining film. Turn your receiver up to 11 and enjoy this DVD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pink Floyd: The Wall - Welcome my son....., November 9, 2000
This review is from: Pink Floyd - The Wall (DVD)
I was a Pink Floyd fan throughout my younger years, but The Wall to me
is still one of the most wonderfully well-produced albums of all time.
I must have seen this film in the theater over 20 times during my high
school years. And now, seeing and hearing this film on DVD has
'remastered' my appreciation for this entertaining visual and audio
experience. At first sight, the graphics work on the package and the
disc itself is attractive. the animated flowers are beautifully
portrayed on the disc. The inner pamphlet is a simple mini poster,
with movie and DVD credits. I was hoping for a little more to read,
but I guess not this time. I popped the DVD into my player and was
immediately introduced to the main menu. You have 4 choices....the
movie, the extra features, scene/song selection and audio selection.
Let's first talk about the audio selection, titled "Set The
Controls". You have a choice of 5.1 surround and PCM stereo
surround. **TECHNICAL NOTE-If your DVD player has 3D sound
enhancement, you must turn this off for this disc. Having that
feature on will lower the sound quality from this disc** You also have
a "system set up" choice. It gives you specific sound tests
and directions on volume and surround elements. A nice addition, kind
of like the THX optimode on other discs, but slightly different. The
next menu button is titled "Any Title You Like". Under
this, you get to choose subtitles if you wish. Your choices are
Spanish, French or English. You get to choose scenes by song, of
course. Unfortunately, these choices are only numbered, there are no
descriptions of the scene or the song. So, it may take a few tries to
find an individual scene. You also have a choice to watch the film
with the song lyrics below the picture. This is pretty cool. It
reminded me of those "Pink Floyd Karaoke Parties" that I
never went to! Anyway, it would probably be taken more seriously to
those not too familiar with the lyrics. The final button, titled
"A Soucerful of Features", contain all the supplemental
material. You have your choice of two documentaries, titled "The
Other Side", "Retro Part One", and "Retro Part
Two". "The Other Side" is a piece produced around the
time The Wall was released, and it's great to watch. There is a lot
of behind the scenes footage. "Retro Part One and Two" are
recent documentaires containing rather new interviews with Roger
Waters, Alan Parker and others who worked on the film. Both of these
documentaires are fascinating because it is well known (to fans), that
Roger and Alan had very different views as to what the film is about!
A lot of behind the scenes stories and information. They are put
together very well and a pleasure to watch! You also have the choice
of watching the film with commentary by Roger Waters and Gerald Scarfe
(animation). These commentaries have great behind the scenes
information throughout the film. Roger Waters is especially a
pleasure to listen to because he laughs (which is rare), and he gives
the commentary a more personal experience since the film is
semi-autobiographical. He even mentions a story about Syd Barrett
(the founder of Pink Floyd). This commentary is outstanding. The
final piece of supplemental material is when you click a button titled
"Oddities". These pieces of supplemental material include
the trailer, photographs from the movie set, paintings from the film,
a music video of "Another Brick in the Wall-Part 2", and a
sequence of the song "Hey You" that was not in the final cut
of The Wall. That's all the supplemental material...well worth it
too! The only two complaints I have are these buttons that you can
press that give you 10 second sound bites from the film, and the
slowness of the menus. After you select something, you need to watch
10 seconds of video before you are allowed to make your next choice.
Menu design and graphics is pretty good, but should be MUCH faster.
OK, so I watched the film and the high definition transfer is
incredibly beautiful. Colors are deeply saturated with a sharp
picture and wonderful clarity. The transfer is very impressive!
Sound quality is a mixed bag. The production track sounds dated, not
too much range but not at all annoying, just noticeable. The music is
unbelievable! The soundtrack was remastered from the ORIGINAL MASTER
TAPES. If you've never heard The Wall on a surround sound system, you
are in for a big treat. The music sounds almost perfect, with some
hiss, but nothing to complain about. There were times I heard
instruments that I didn't remember from the album....incredibly clear,
wonderfully recorded music. I can't say enough about the musical
soundtrack, it comes alive on DVD. Pink Floyd never sounded better!
In conclusion, I recommend this DVD to EVERY Pink Floyd fan, and to
those who want to hear a unique, musical experience and watch a
beautifully photographed film. I must add that the animation is
absolutely wonderful. Gerald Scarfe has included his great creativity
throughout the film! The disc loses points ONLY for its slow menu
navigation. Other then that, Pink Floyds The Wall on DVD is
wonderful. Tons of extra footage, a beautiful transfer and
unbelievable sounding music. A great DVD to own whether you live
inside or outside the wall! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Saving Private Ryan-Hold onto your subwoofer!, November 5, 2000
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
**This review covers the 5.1 surround version, NOT the DTS version**
I was anxious to receive this DVD, since I heard amazing things about its sound quality. The DVD comes in an attractive case, with well-made graphic design on both the package and the disc itself. A small pamphlet comes inside the package, with an interesting read about Spielberg and the film. Not too impressive, but a good read overall. I popped the DVD into my player and was very impressed with the simple, yet beautiful menu design. Navigation is easy and the menu design couldn't be more simple, without lacking attractive graphical design. In the menu, you have the choice of picking certain scenes with a very impressive moving scene index, and you can choose to have English subtitles. The special features are put together very well. You have a special message from Steven Spielberg, a behind the scenes featurette titled "Into The Beach", the theatrical and re-release trailers, cast & crew info and production notes. (Into The Beach is NOT on the DTS version because of space limitations. DTS audio takes up much more disc space then other audio formats. If you prefer DTS audio and don't mind the lack of the "Into The Beach" featurette, then make sure you order the DTS version.) The audio choices you have are 5.1 digital surround and 2.0 Dolby surround. Whatever type of system you have, be prepared for an audio experience that will overwhelm the senses. Saving Private Ryan is an incredible film, a real tribute to those that put their lives on the line over 50 years ago. Spielberg has created a film with top notch production values. The cinematography and sound design, as well as the production design are incredible. The picture quality of this DVD is superb. It is very clean with beautiful detail and a look and style that is amazing, especially during the battle scenes. The cinematographer Janusz Kamisnki, who I had the pleasure of working with once, did an exceptional job of bringing the viewer right into the extreme chaos of war, and creating a visual experience unlike any previous war movie ever seen. The sound of this DVD is another story in itself. The sound design of this film is just about flawless. Incredibly realistic, unbelievably clean with beautifully recorded music and crisp, clear dialogue. If you have a surround system, the war sequences will be nothing less then spectacular. Even those with 2 speaker set-ups, the sound is amazing. On 5.1 systems, gunshots and bullets will surround your head with such clarity, you may find yourself ducking for cover. Sound design is ground-breaking, and the people responsible for it on this film should be applauded. Deep bass is well used throughout the battle scenes, so your subwoofer will have an extreme workout. The ambiance and atmospheric qualities of the entire film, along with the surround and effects elements, will give the viewer an unbelievable listening experience. Add this to an incredibly visual film, and you have the stage set for about 3 hours of DVD pleasure. I highly recommend this DVD to any fan of Spielberg, or to anyone who really wants to hear audio that is simply groundbreaking. In conclusion, Saving Private Ryan is an excellent, well produced film. A real tribute to those who risked their lives in World War II. This DVD is excellent....buy it and enjoy it...an amazing treat for the eyes and ears.
