4.0 out of 5 stars Fixed, August 26, 2016
This review is from: Fix You (MP3 Music)
When it has came down to Coldplay, they have honestly been one of the most distinctive and melodic acts to have ever came out of the 2000 decade. Hard to believe that it has been over 15 years since Coldplay made their debut with Parachutes, and the songs that they have released have mostly been strong, uplifting and incredible. Chris Martin & company have not one group that has been tiring, they have just gotten better with age. But the past few years have been hard for the group. For Chris Martin, his marriage to Gwenyth Paltrow ended in divorce, but their music has not been as solid as what it was before. So lately, I have been going back to what made the guys from the U.K. so classy and distinctive from before. One of their bigger songs from 2005's X & Y, Fix You actually is one of those songs that really is melodic and brilliant. I early on liked the song, while I didn't find it as strong as The Scientist, Speed Of Sound or Clocks. But still, it is definitely a great song to listen to, and one of those gems that you should hear, if you have just gotten into Coldplay for the first time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lifetime Or Subscription?, August 26, 2016
There is no question that with computers and the constant and striking threats around you from malware and Trojans, to hackers stealing your information, you really have to find new ways to protect you while you are surfing the web, or buying online. But most of them really do want you to pay yearly subscriptions to make it worthwhile overall. When I heard about Vipre as another lesser-known brand, I was very skeptical about whether or not it would be as strong as the other brands like McAfee and Norton. But honestly, I was taken at how strong and distinctive Vipre really does work. It really handles itself very well, and does a very good job at keeping out those pests that can really harm your computer. While it does handle well, there are other versions of the software actually work just as well, and can save you in the long run rather than a yearly subscription. You can choose to buy lifetime subscriptions for one or multiple PC's online through Amazon, or you can try with HSN that has more exclusive versions that can protect multiple PC's for their lifetimes, without the cost and drag you would get with subscriptions. But still, I would recommend Vipre, just not as a subscription security software.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Windows Cloud, August 25, 2016
Honestly, the past few years we have really seen more companies like Windows considering having cloud laptops where your storage should be on a cloud service, than a more striking hard disk drive. But honestly, it has had more of its drawbacks with Windows 10 computers, rather than the Google Chromebooks that have actually been more productive and really show that they have been more worth the money. Many companies do not really have the appeal that Google has shown in price and reliability. But Microsoft has been trying nevertheless with their own Cloudbooks, and this one by Acer is one that is reliable, but it is not as speedy and distinctive as the Google Chromebooks. While you do get more out of the use with Office 365, it actually isn't worth it in the long run to have it, considering your would have to pay more to use it in the long run. One year with Office 365 can cost more for you in the long run. While it is a sleek computer, you would still need to have security software with this computer, because it doesn't protect you better than a regular computer. If you really would rather have a cloud computer, I would honestly consider going somewhere else in value and appeal, like Google with their Chromebooks. They are more reliable at the end of the day if you need a second computer, or a cloud laptop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cloud Starter, August 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These days if you really want to save all of your files online, you would have to subscribe to a cloud service. Unfortunately, trying to find a good cloud service, can be both time consuming and a waste on your wallet. Especially with companies like Microsoft which you'd have to subscribe to Microsoft Office 365, which can be a waste of your wallet over time, or you would have to buy a personal cloud storage system, which also can be a waste on your wallet because you would have to pay a lot of money up front, and not have to worry about others stealing your information. When I heard about Degoo, I was honestly surprised about free cloud storage. It offers 100 GB free storage for only 2 computers,or one computer and one tablet or smartphone. It is reliable, but you would have to subscribe to a yearly service for the money for numerous devices for all of your tablets and computers. Still, if you just want a cloud system for all the basics for your computer, and have limited space, well this is one to go to for the money. But if you have multiple devices, you may need to look into the their subscription services to see if it is worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars As Strong Today, August 25, 2016
This review is from: As (MP3 Music)
I have always loved George Michael musically, because he has been one of the most soulful singers I have ever enjoyed at the soul of the voice within. Which is something many of today's singers do not have and neither they will try. Hard to believe that it has been 35 years since he made his debut as a part of Wham, and his world really changed. But he has done so many remarkable covers over the years. He showed that throughout his career on his own by covering artists from Bonnie Raitt to Terence Trent D'Arby a few years ago for with Let Her Down Easy for his Symphonica album. But he has covered Stevie Wonder for years for so many of his albums and b-sides. His rendition of As with Mary J. Blige is one of those underrated covers that is really a hidden gem of George's. The song actually was a U.K. exclusive for his 1998 hits compilation, Ladies & Gentleman: The Best Of George Michael. The song is definitely a lovely song to listen to, and definitely worth every note. He really showed that he and Mary really do have a lot of chemistry worth listening to. It really was never recognized in America by die hard George Michael fans, as was the case with Outside back in 1998, but honestly the song definitely is joyous and very soulful. If you have loved George's duets over the years like Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me with Elton John, than you'll absolutely love this song.

If there is one that I have loved about Microsoft Office is that its a simple and convenient software that has worked wonders for so many. But the past few years has shown that Microsoft wants to make it much different for those whom have relied on the software for all of their needs. When Microsoft Office 365 came out a few years ago, I really would have to say that I was deeply and simply unhappy with the idea that so many would have to switch over to a cloud software to keep all of their records intact. But overall, I wasn't really thrilled with that notion. Microsoft Office 365 is one of those pieces of software that makes it where multiple computers would have to rely on the yearly service for your needs. But honestly, it isn't really worth it in the long run if you need to have multiple PC's on a cloud service, where you'd have to pay so much yearly. But also, I was not thrilled with the speed of the software on my computer either. While it does work nicely on some of the titles like Powerpoint and Word, it falls short on Excel and One Drive. Still, I think if you really need a cloud service for your computers, Office 365 isn't worth the money in the long run.

3.0 out of 5 stars Make Take It Again, August 24, 2016
The past few years have been very hard for Twisted Sister. Musically, the band decided to retire from performing, marred with disgust and fallout in the late 80's, but coming back so nicely in the 2000's because of the aftermath of 9/11. All they were embarking on their farewell tour, Dee Snider, Mark Mendoza and company were also dealt with a massive blow, with the tragic death of their drummer A.J. Perro whom died of a malicious heart attack in 2015. The gang were hit very hard, but the spirit of Twisted Sister is well alive. As for Dee Snider, he decided to make a more stripped down of the group's striking anthem, We're Not Gonna Take It. The 2016 acoustic version, unfortunately doesn't drive in the way the original showed so well for years. While it will appeal to die hard Twisted Sister fans, unfortunately it will not appeal to those that have never heard a Twisted Sister song before, especially one so striking from the 80's. If you're a fan of hard rock from the 80's, than you'll love this acoustic classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive Protection, August 23, 2016
There is no question that these days, it is much easier for you to not have protection for your credit and bank cards. Largely, because of the new protective chips that have been installed in your cards to pop into a protective scanner, and it will easily take the money out of your account, or you will be charged for your purchases. But unfortunately, there are so many people that can now easily have their card information stolen with those chip-placed cards. I have used card protection decals from Stealth before, which have worked so well, but cost a lot of money. So trying to find another method is just easier said than done. When I had heard about Card Lock, I really didn't think it was anything special, because when you used to get those sleeves at first, when you have received newly activated debit cards from your banks. It does though fit into my wallet nicely, and does protect my chip-enabled card nicely. Yet, I do wish that it would've cost a lot less for the money. But it is better than getting a wallet that really does not protect you at all. I did like Card Lock, but I wish you could've gotten more for the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Swiss Moon & Sun Starter, August 23, 2016
If there is one thing that I have adored about being someone whom has collected watches and being a horologist, is that you can sometimes be just as defined as the watches that you do wear. In the case with Movado, they have been one of the most distinctive watch companies that have ever graced the market. They have shown that so well, but the past several years, Movado has been trying too hard at gearing to the younger generation of those watch owners, that unfortunately it has cost Movado one of their strong and distinctive brands, ESQ. But with Movado trying to take it a step further with their Bold collection, they still have made some distinctive timepieces. This gunmetal Swiss quartz piece is distinctive and one of the few classier watches from the Movado Bold line. It has a very strong movement, and classic style. But honestly, there still could've been a bit more added to this watch. There could've been more water resistance to match brands like Invicta and Deep Blue, and some illuminated hands on the watch, so you could see the timepiece clearer in the dark. But still, despite the flaws, this is one of the more distinctive watches Movado made for their Bold collection, and one more worthwhile than the rest.
