reviewed Nut mix. September 30, 2010
Nut mix
We like mixed nuts.  Unfortunately, almost everything is heavily salted.      To fix this, we buy a large jar of mixed party nuts at BJ's or wherever but mix it with unsalted …

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
I LOVE this stuff!      I used to hate cleaning our shower.  The soap scum that builds up on the walls and the glass doors is incredibly resistant to removal and I hated using …

The Thin Man
Fun and fast moving, no boredom here.  We were also impressed by the enunciation - no mumbling, no stopping and moving back because we couldn't understand what some word slurring actor said.   …

iPad
  I bought my iPad because I have an app that I'll start working on after the new operating system comes out in November.  I really had no idea that it would turn out to be my favorite …

Gmail
First, I sell commercial mail servers (no, not Exchange), so  I have some bias.   I'm not going to plug the product I sell (though it's easy enough to track it down through my profile …

Google Analytics
I had low expectations for this. After all, Google Analytics has very detailed help pages and you can find specific pages for all of the major concepts covered in this book. So what's the point?    We …

Rosetta Stone V4 TOTALe: Spanish (Latin America)
I had a little French in 5th grade but took Latin in 7th and continued with that for four years. I always regretted not taking French or Spanish, but never had the time to do anything about those regrets.  &nbs …

Altec Lansing MZX126W XY Headphones
What I liked most about these was the wrap around design. Every other set of earbuds I have owned has two cords leading all the way back to the plug and of course that's just that much more wire to get …
iPad Application Development For Dummies
I just couldn't get interested in the iPhone - the small screen size just turned me off entirely and the pricey, locked in data plans didn't help either. When Apple announced the iPad I immediately saw …
The iPhone Developer's Cookbook: Building
It can be very frustrating trying to step into the iPhone/iPad world. There are plenty of "Hello World" examples, but after that it starts getting very confusing very quickly.    Worse, …

The Art of Assembly Language
I am someone who did a little assembler many years ago but haven't touched it in the interim. I always *liked* it - it's mentally challenging and the forced attention to detail and required concentration …

LOREX LW2301 4-Channel Wireless Quad Surveillance
Yes, easy to set up. But if you have a camera device, why not go the extra step and let it be network connected? Remote viewing is what most people want and expect today. Does it cost that much to throw …

Health (Sports) Rider
We bought this many years ago - probably when it first came out sometime in the 90's. I used it quite often, but when we semi-retired and moved to a smaller home, we gave it to my daughter because we …
Friends with Benefits: A Social Media Marketing
I know that I should do more social media marketing for my own business. I do some, but I don't really do all that I could.    The reason is that I have a distaste for spammy marketing. …
Long Past Stopping: A Memoir
I read a hundred pages or so and put this down. I will say that it's well written, but I just have a hard time maintaining interest in someone who is obviously intelligent and yet has made so many unintelligent …
Cisco Network Professional's Advanced
I'm not sure what happened - did I read the wrong description or was I just not paying attention?    This book deals with networking at levels I don't get into. I deal with small businesses, …

Avery® NoteTabs(TM) 2 inch x 1.5 inch Neon Blue
My wife and I both use PostIt notes to mark off sections of piles of paper, bookmarks and so on. In some places, these are better, but certainly not as inexpensive.    As an extra …
The Art of SEO: Mastering Search Engine
I am one who has been very outspoken about the more shady SEO practitioners and about the ridiculously overprices "courses" that are heavily promoted on the Internet. SEO has acquired some of the taint …

Angels and Ages: A Short Book About Darwin,
In contrast to the reviewers who hate Gopnik's writing, I think it stands among the best I have ever read.    His paragraphs often bring you to a full stop at the end where you have …
Network Know-How: An Essential Guide for the
If I hired a new employee for my computer consulting business, I'd give them this to read. I'd HOPE that there was nothing in here they didn't already know, but I've seen supposedly knowledgeable people …

Googled: The End of the World As We Know It
As I started reading this earlier today, I thought it would be a glossy recounting of Google's history with little substance. I deliberately ignore the author's name when I first pick up a new book so …
reviewed Windows 7 Secrets. September 23, 2009
Windows 7 Secrets
I make no secret of not liking Windows. I mean Microsoft, its products, I dislike them. I have to have knowledge of their OSes because my customers can't use Unix and Linux everywhere, so I do need to …

Windex Outdoor All-in-One Glass Cleaning Tool
We have gardens in front of our house so it has been a major pain for me to wash windows. I have to get a ladder, but it's hard to get it in the shrubs without breaking something - big pain!    I …

Windex Outdoor All-In-One Glass Cleaning Tool -
This worked perfectly for me.    I think the people who had bad results must have different water than the rest of us.    Why else would some of us think it works …
The Myths of Security: What the Computer Security
I really enjoyed this. John pulls no punches and isn't afraid to express his opinions.    Of course not everyone is going to be happy with those opinions. The chapter on Open Source …
Unscientific America: How Scientific Illiteracy
I was left feeling very disappointed by this. I feel it is shallow and exhibits obvious bias.    I am as dismayed as anyone by the apparent stupidity all around us. I am disgusted …
The Republican War on Science
I came late to this - I bought it in conjunction with Chris Mooney's latest "Unscientific America"    The title reflects Chris's bias. I'm as strong a Republican basher as anyone, …
The Looting of America: How Wall Street's Game of
Just minutes after I finished reading this I happened to be standing in a long, slow moving line at a store. Someone wondered why they didn't have more clerks working just before a long holiday weekend …
Writings on an Ethical Life
This is a book you should read in your teens or even before. As an adult, I found it tedious, obvious and even boring. This is fodder for long conversations between earnest youths, not anything most adults …
Sun of gOd: Discover the Self-Organizing
I'm an atheist from day one - day one being the first moment when I became aware that other people had notions of a "god". I do not know how old I was; I was quite young and frankly it scared me a bit …
CompTIA Network+ Study Guide: Exam N10-004
This is very complete and I have little doubt that it will prepare you well for the CompTIA Network+ exam. I thought the test and review questions were very well done and I also liked that it included …
Survival: How a Culture of Preparedness Can Save
I've been holding off reviewing this because I'm not sure how I feel.     I took an instant dislike to General Honore in the first few pages. That undoubtedly colored my judgment of …
Stopping Identity Theft: 10 Easy Steps to Security
Like most of us, I've been bombarded with offers from credit card companies and others offering identity theft protection. I didn't think I needed it, but really wasn't sure.     Well, …

I'd like to start by wishing Marion a long and peaceful life. I say peaceful because he certainly deserves that after everything he has been through in his life.    I'm very glad that …

Exposed!: Ouija, Firewalking, and Other Gibberish
I was looking forward to this but ended up quite disappointed.     Part of it is probably that I'm just too much of a skeptic to begin with - I found it impossible to believe that …

I'll Make You an Offer You Can't Refuse: Insider
This is a pleasant enough read. Basically the author contrasts the advice of Machiavelli and Solomon while throwing in a little mob history and anecdotes and relates all of that to general business advice. …

Corel Painter 11
First off, no, I'm not a professional artist. I'm not "artistic" at all. To give you an idea of how untalented I am, consider that my own aunt was my 7th grade Art teacher and she gave me a "D". In fairness, …

The Death of Meriwether Lewis: A Historic Crime
This book feels rushed. Perhaps it is - as the upcoming exhumation of Meriwether may settle the suicide/murder question entirely, there may be little interest in the book after that, especially if it …

You know how you read some books and you are dead sure they'll end up in the "New and Used" section here for four or five dollars in a few years?    This is one that I think will be …
