5.0 out of 5 stars A superior alternative to foil or cooking sprays for oven roasting, March 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An excellent addition to my kitchen. It's been great for roasted vegetables, and generally anything that needs to be on a tray but doesn't require liquid or oil for cooking (such as frozen potatoes). I've never had anything stick to the surface, even when the food has burned a little. The surface is very easy to clean and any residue from the food comes right off. I've had no problems with it at 450F (though I believe it is not fit for broiling). This has replaced foil or greasing a metal sheet in my oven.

5.0 out of 5 stars A winter lifesaver, March 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was a bit skeptical about the products efficiency and the fact it was pricey but it turned out to have exceeded my expectations. I was biking to work (in Chicago) through out much of the winter with this on, and felt comfortable. At work, where I have active 12 hours shifts, I wasn't uncomfortable or hot at all. It became essential winter clothing.

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, March 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I saw a brief mention of this on a tech blog, so I thought I'd give it a try, given its low price. I wanted to replace my USB keyboard without dropping $70 on an Apple keyboard. It came fairly quickly, packaged in an envelope and a flimsy box. Instructions were basic but easy to understand. Setup was easy: 2 AAA batteries and activation view a button on the underside. My MacBook detected it and did the usual test by having you hit the keys next to the shift keys. It was operational after that.

The footprint is basically is the same as an Apple keyboard. The main drawbacks: some keys just didn't do anything, like ESC (escape) and some of the function keys that didn't respond or trigger any shortcuts or events, despite changing settings in the system preference. The worst thing was the key action itself. The keyboard is not very sensitive and requires more pressure to register a click than what I had been accustomed to, leading to a lot of misspellings when I didnt type hard enough and missed letters (and occasionally, hitting a key too hard would result in double letters).

I cant see using this keyboard for too long if I'm going to have to constantly correct typos. It'll likely just end up as a backup keyboard.

3.0 out of 5 stars Let's review, one more time, December 8, 2005
This is important to understand: this is not a book that will teach you the fundamentals of CSS. Repeat, NOT a primer on CSS. Rather, it is a book aimed at users who want to write or improve the aesthetics of their website by incorporating CSS. For that reason, it is fairly solid. Most of the premises are fairly basic and straightforward, covering the usual elements of type, layout, images, grids, etc. It is a decent resource for ideas and perhaps some alternative ways to approach building or rebuilding your site (using CSS presumably). Advanced designers would probably want to look elsewhere for ideas, theories and techniques.

If you want to understand what CSS is really about, in terms of writing it (to make your site as pretty as the examples in this book) you should turn elsewhere, like Eric A. Meyer's book on the subject. And you can easily check out the publisher's website and probably see everything you need to that is in this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for beginning actionscript auteurs, March 11, 2003
This book is a solid starting point for people interested in making dynamic flash sites with actionscript. It's written in a casual tone, so it's not too dry. However, I do recommend some knowledge of object oriented programming (javascript) because the logic of writing actionscript will be foreign to people who are beginners or have only worked with HTML. However, the lessons are presented in an easy to understand way, with concepts that can be applicable to your own work. There are occasional lapses, such as the author's failure to explain just how a layer mask works, even though it is a necessary step in several lessons (I had to go to macromedia's site for a quick tutorial). Overall, as a relative novice, I have found it helpful and it will be useful as a reference tool after I have completed the lessons.
