Tim's Vermeer [DVD] [2014] <b>DVD</b> ~ Teller

I really wouldn't agree with the reviewer who said if you're not into the art, skip this movie. I have NEVER got why people raved about Vermeer, nothing in his paintings seemed very interesting to me. Of course I was looking at pictures in books or posters. Seeing a camera roving over the details of the highlights on a crusty loaf, a woven basket, the glaze of a vase gave me an "Oh, THAT'S what all the fuss is about!" feeling, and then the fantastical technical detail that Jenison goes into in his quest to reproduce the Music Lesson was a joy.

Sennheiser RS 160 Over-Ear Wireless Over-Ear Headp&hellip by Sennheiser
Didn't get them from Amazon, but sharing our experience here. Having had a set of Sennheiser cordless in the house for year, older model no longer available some flavour of the 120, my son took his Christmas money and bought some of these. They were, as others have noted, useless when he moved out of the room with the base - the older set we have can go from one end of the house to the other. Tried changing channels, did everything we reasonable could, then returned them. He bought the 170s instead, and is very happy with them. This seems a rare dud model for Sennheiser - although others are obviously happy with them, beware especially if you have solid block walls.

Audible for Android by Audible, Inc.
Despite uninstalling and reinstalling, the Android app kept telling me I didn't have an Audible membership, would only show me sample excerpts and couldn't find the book I chose with my free trial membership. I even downloaded that to my Mac in iTunes and followed the instructions in the help for dragging it into the Audible folder on my phone with Android File Transfer. I could see it there plain as day on my phone, but the app couldn't. So now I'm reduced to stripping the drm just so I can move this via another app and listen to it. And will I be keeping up my membership beyond the free trial? Unless support get back to me with a total solution, not b likely.
