This GPS Navigator works well. Some of the addresses are off in the country but that is how all of them are. I wish there would be an easy way to send in proper coordinates for stuff you see that is obviously off the mark by a mile or two. Enough dreaming. I am happy with the layout and menus on the device. It also allows more types of routing. You can set it to avoid toll roads which is good if you are not racing with time.
P. S. Download map updates overnight. They take about 3 hrs. Happy routing!
Have used this before and found best price here (as it can be expensive). I always have a tube on hand to stop cold sores as they start....works as well as oral prescription acyclovir (sp?). Highly recommend - just keep on had always.
QuickBooks for Mac 2013 [Download]My business was growing and I still wasn't the most organized in the 'paperwork department.' QuickBooks was highly recommended by several entrepreneurial friends.
I was a little worried about using QB on my Mac because they all have PC's. I found the website 'Intuit Quickbooks for Mac - Little Square' and have NO worries. There are no questions that I've asked that I couldn't find an answer or video for.
The accounting required for my business; invoices, estimates, and other reports are a breeze. A few minutes every day working with the incredibly user friendly QuickBooks puts everything where it belongs. With it all being in the right place, I no longer dread my bookkeeping.
My kids have had the super-tough Leapsters for years, but this is our first foray into having a LeapPad. The good news is that this gadget seems to be just as tough as the Leapster, which is important considering how often children can drop iPads/Kindles/Nooks/etc.
Like they seem to do with all tablets, will figure out how to use the LeapPad quickly. If you want to add to the pre-loaded apps the LeapPad comes with a $20 credit. That's great, but do some careful shopping because the big name brand apps can cost more than that. Besides the apps, there are built-in features such as the camera, the calender, a folder for books (none included), a folder for mp3s (you have to pay more the the mp3 player if you want to add your child's music). Loading the LeapPad with a wide variety of activities, apps, music and more could get pricey.
So, in short, the LeapPad is durable but you really need to look at other tablets and see if you want to buy a dedicated child-based tablet or an adult tablet that can be adapted to your child with much cheaper (or free) apps.
It's only been out of the box for an hour, and I'm already convinced this was the right TV to buy. I'm one of those people who believe that if a product is designed right, I should never have to look at the manual. With the exception of putting the TV on the stand this has been true. The remote and the software work beautiful together.
The smart: while waiting for the cable modem to reboot, I clicked on settings, and the TV connected to my wireless network faster than a new Mac does. A click on the "smart tv" remote button, and I was in business. The YouTube app connected easily with my iPad, so I was instantly able to play videos I bookmarked. The TV software then remembers the videos you've recently played so you can go back to them easily. I'm looking forward to playing with the other networked features and will update the review when I've had more experience.
The sound is clear and better than most built in TV speakers. The sound settings give you a limited amount of customization, and I wish it had a bass boost, but otherwise no complaints. I've been listening to both music and standard TV programs.
The quality of the picture is what sold me on LG TVs over the other brands when I went to the store to check out the different brands. As a previous fan of high end Sony TVs, this one holds its own in terms of sharpness and detail. If you are wondering if getting full 1080 HD resolution on a 32" TV is worth spending a bit more, it is. Whether you are trying to read movie credits or seeing the details of the net behind home plate, those extra pixels mean a lot.
The "Picture Wizard" makes customizing brightness, contrast and color easy. There is no absolute in picture preferences, so you can set it to what looks good to you. It might have just been an overcast day in Chicago when I was watching the Cubs game, but I turned off the Eco mode because it made the picture look too flat. This TV faces a window with a southern exposure, so maybe I was asking too much of it.
One warning: the 60Hz does mean that there will be blurriness in some very fast moving sports or action films. There was only one time it made a difference when watching baseball, but it should be a consideration if you watch faster moving programs.
Now that I've figured out the basics, I might read the manual to see what features I missed, but even if I don't, this is a great TV.
