5.0 out of 5 stars A Boost for your iPhone's Camera, September 2, 2015
When I first heard about the premise for this book I was skeptical. I have used my iPhone starting with the iPhone 3 as a grab it and snap a quick picture camera. In no way would I expect the quality to meet or exceed what I could pay a professional to complete for me. Reading this book though I have been able to make strides in just my general snapshots.

One of the most intriguing portions of the book was the affect of lighting combined with some of the apps you can add and how they could take a product that is with me all the time and make it capable of producing amazing high quality photographs. I know that I have already seen a difference just in my quick shots that we all love to take and share on social media after reading and following many of the instructions offered in this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, quick and very enjoyable game, December 17, 2014
This review is from: 12 Days Card Game (Toy)
This is a great lightweight card game which has a nice mix of planning and bluffing involved. It can be played with kids who understand Go Fish which makes it great for families.

Typically I prefer heavier games, but the fact is most of the people who I can easily play games with don't. This game is enough fun that it can fulfill the urge to play something more than a simple card game when I cannot find anyone who wants to play the more complex games with me that night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted, January 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I very much enjoy dark roasts. The challenge I find is that many of them are either burnt or overly bitter from poor roasting. This coffee does a very good job of being a strong dark roast that is full of flavor without any hint of burnt or bitter flavors. It is very dark and oily and the small portion that did not fit in my airtight container dried out a bit and was not as strong flavored. That took over 3 weeks though due to the volume of coffee and it was still better than other dark roasts I have tried. I have used this for guests to eat with pies and cake over the holidays and all of them commented on its excellent flavor. A couple who don't really like dark roast did request some cream, but still gladly had multiple cups.

I would recommend this to anyone who:

1. Likes dark roast coffee
2. Doesn't know, and wants to try it
3. Wants to change it up from a medium, or god forbid, a light roast.

It is a good quality product made more so because of the cost

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I expected, March 11, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Prior to purchasing this I did go to local stores and tried this and other entry level guitars. With no experience what so ever on guitar I had a vague idea of what I cared about. It had to fit, it had to sound good to me, and I had to like the look. In the end the DR-100 won out. I have owned it about a week at this point, I can play 2 chords correctly and 4 others correctly if I am extremely slow, and I know that I went the right direction.

This guitar works for someone learning. It does stay in tune without major issues. Even having to re-tune each day takes very little adjustment. You WILL want to buy strings and swap them out. I could hear the issues more experienced players were pointing out and a $5 set of medium strings made that disappear immediately. I do think that the strings are a bit higher than a couple others I tried, but my feeling after a week of playing it is that this forces me to be careful and make sure where I am positioning my fingers (more importantly my hand/thumb).

From listening to a more experienced friend play it I will buy another one if I am still playing in a year. At that point I will spend more and get a better quality instrument. For now the investment to learn is relatively small and I think I could recoup about 50% of it if I don't continue to play long term.
