1.0 out of 5 stars An Obscene Toy For Obscene Times, 4 Feb 2013
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
An obscene toy for obscene times thought up by people with no functioning moral compass. The real drones are used to kill "suspects", that is to say murder people people who have no chance to defend themselves either physically or in a court, worse still is that entire families are being literally ripped to shreds as Helfire and Brimstone missiles tear into family homes. I can only assume that the "character building" the makers of these toys want to achieve is the character suitable for future corporate imperialists, able to set aside any distinction of right or wrong !

1.0 out of 5 stars Firewire does NOT work with Macs, 9 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is touted as a drive for Macs however the Firewire does NOT work out of the box, it requires a firmware update first which must be done via the USB connection, an O/S update from apple rendered all external Firewire drive connections dead. This would be fine if this actually worked but while my Mac Mini could see the drive the Firmware Updater from Western Digital's own support site is not able to see the connected drive. You can power down and restart as many time as you like in any combination of connection but it will not see the drive. I followed all the WD technical help they provided in their site to the letter but all to no avail. I called WD Technical help and got through after "just" 33 minutes. Sadly it was like talking to a dolphin. I speak five languages, three fluently but the technical support I got was barely able to string more than five words together at once. I returned the drive to Amazon and they most commendably replaced the drive in just 20 hours - so congratulations to them.

Sadly I then went through the same pain all over again. I do not know who is at fault, the almighty and arrogant Apple for O/S changes that render drives useless overnight or the sloppy WD whose firmware updates cannot see one of two connect usb devices- to be frank I do not give the furry crack of a rat's behind but the end result is that after years of buying WD drives I am done.

I have since done some Googling of the WD 3TB My Book and found any number of similar issues with it specifically, and with other WD drives on Macs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideas in Plenty, 16 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read some fifty two books this last year, this is the one i keep revisiting the most. Packed with ideas that i have copied, developed and applied to other things. Very inspiring for anyone doing any sort of hobby art. Beautiful and plentiful illustrations that work extremely well on kindle for android or ipad, some thought went into how the e book was put together i would say, not the usual copy and plonk shoddy job. If you never buy another journalling book then buy this one, really worthwhile investment if you only go as far as looking at the wonders created by others.

Always go for quality when buying any supplements, the fillers used in many are positively harmful. Life Extension have THE best reputation, best quality and most thorough product quality control and checking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relief From the Plague, 16 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried many things over the years for cold sores but lysine seem to be the most effective, certainly better than the zovirex rubbish that just makes matter worse. The lysine soothes the pain, and reduces the length of the attack, especially when used with a simple cheap 750nm 2mw laser as an attack begins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Drafting and Sketching Pencil, 16 Dec 2012
A beautifully crafted machine, just holding its solid, perfectly machined weight in your hand makes you want to use it. Perfect for drafting and sketching, i now have five of these each with different leads in to meet my drawing needs. They go with me where ever I go, from Northern Norway through Europe to the Med and east into Russia they function flawlessly exposed to any environment (though wear gloves when sketching out in sub zero or they will stick to your fingers!). They also attract admirers where ever I am, in Joensuu, North Kerelia, Finland I was able to trade one for a bus ride to Helsinki !
