2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 23 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Township (App)
This is a fun game but not for the serious player. What I liked about it is the graphics and animations which are quite good. However, this is a slow game, it takes ages to produce things and upgrade unless you are willing to pay money, which I am not. I didn't like the incredibly small storage space you have in the barn and the worst part is that crops cost money, except wheat, which means you will run out of money in the game quite a lot and you have to wait to get it back. It can be fun just to play it casually, but apart from that it can be frustrating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comedy, 11 Jan. 2011
This is one of the best comedy shows I watched recently. It follows the footsteps of the first season by delivering a laugh after another with a cast of characters that all work togehter beatufiully. Sadly this is the last season of the show, but it still ends in a nice way. unlike other sitcomes, the standard in this season does not drop from the first, it still gives you what you expect, and you feel you want to watch it again. I particularly liked the characters of Frank, and Dina, though not the main characters, but their role, I think, is very important and the show would not be the same without them. This is a fun, refreshing, and very entertaing sitcom that can be watched at anytime, and definitely more than once. If you are a comedy fan, you definitely need to watch these two seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent phone, 11 Jan. 2011
This is one of the best phones I owned so far, if not the best. It looks so sleek and beautifully finished, and very elegant in hand. The screen is of a good size and very bright (brightness adjustable from settings menu).
Functionality wise, it has everything I expected a decent phone to have. The camera is very good, though it can be a bit tricky to use if put in Silent mode as the shutter will not make a sound and you would not know whether the photo has been taken or not when you first use it. It has many screen gadgets that are all customizable and can be replaced with any of the other available widgets and gadgets from the phone menu. The phone volume is much better and higher than I expected form a Samsung phone, and the volume is adjustable from both the profile page, or a side button. The only thing I did not like about this phone is the usb connection jack, it is located at the top of the phone, near the power button, and it just looks and feels fragile, and you need to be very careful when using it (it is used for both charging the phone and connecting it to your PC). The software that comes with the phone is very useful, but I thought it is not so user friendly (interface wise), not to mention it feels very sluggish sometimes.
The best feature of the phone by far is the battery life. It is amazing, never had a phone that could last so long without being charged almost everyday. I am only charging it once a week even though the battery is not dead yet. In addition, the phone recharges when it is connected to your PC, and I thought this is very good as well.
If you like customizing, this is the phone to get, you can have themes, wallpapers, ring tones, photos for callers, and so many other features, you can spend a whole day just deciding how to make your phone look like. I read a few reviews about the phone online, and some of the problems that were mentioned is that the phone dials numbers by itself, and this has never happend with me. If you lock the phone, there is no need to worry, and if that happens, then you can lock it with a password, and problem solved. Another problem was that the screen is unrespnsive. This is not so accurate, the screen is very responsive, maybe too much, and that is the problem, not otherwise. If you have a problem with texting, just turn the phone to have it in a horizental position, and the virtual keypap will turn into a full querty one, and that will definitely be easier to use.
I would definietly recommend this phone, maybe it is not the most expesive, or it does not pack all the most advanced features of other phones, but it is fun to use, has superb battery life, and very elegant.

Acronis True Image Home 2011:PC Backup and Recovery (PC)
Acronis True Image Home 2011:PC Backup and Recovery (PC)

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing at best, 25 Dec. 2010
Upgraded to this version after using the previous one for about a year with no problems at all. This version; however, is a total let down. It seems that every new version of this software is getting more attention to the interface rather than useability and user friendliness. The interface looks good, but you need to spend a lot of time trying to figure out where all the backup options are, and read the help file again to see if there are changes to each of them. This was a problem when I first run the programme, but the main problem is that it did not work at all. I chose to do a full backup of my main system and partition, and chose to start the backup immediately. Waited for about half an hour and nothing happened. I existed the software, started it again, and got a look at the error log, and apparently it did not do the backup cause it could not connect to the update server.
What If I do not want to update the software? I do not have an internet at home nowadays, so that means the program is never going to do what it is supposed to do. This is very annoying, and the previous version is a lot better in all aspects, not to mention it would actually allow you to do a backup without having to connect to the internet. Avoid this version and get the previous one and save yourself from the pain of trying to get this version to work.

5.0 out of 5 stars great, 4 Dec. 2009
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
very nice and easy to use software. Been using Acronis and still do, but gave this a try and it works perfectly. It is very simple to use, and like all other backup software gives the option of a full backup which is pretty useful in case of disaster. The interface is easy, no complicated stuff here, and does not need an experienced user to manage. Would definitely recommend it, it is very easy to use, and very helpful as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good, 4 Oct. 2009
very good quality T-Shirt, the print is amazing and quite eye catching, and does not wash off easily at all. The only bad thing about it is that it shrank badly after the first wash, almost does not fit any more. Would highly recommend going a size larger than what you normally wear, if you are going for M, choose L, it is definitely going to shrink, which is really a shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars worst purchase ever, 25 Sept. 2009
Items was received very fast, good delivery. However, very disappointing. It is made of leather, that is the only good thing about it. It does have many slots for credit cards as you can see in the product photo. I put only about 6 cards in there, and a couple of notes, then the wallet got so bulky and did not even close. The outer side of the wallet seems to be very thick, and there is no chance all the slots can be filled with credit cards, and money, etc, which means the wallet is totally useless. My old one was holding 10 cards, money, receipts and could still close and not be so heavy. Avoid at all costs, find something better.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good software, 24 Sept. 2009
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This has become one of the most essential programs for me, and use it very frequently. Been using version 5, upgraded to this one very easily, no problems there. The integration is very good, with shell extensions, Microsoft Office and browsers. It is very comprehensive, very easy to use, and extremely useful to make PDFs from almost any thing viewable in text format, including images. This version however did seem quite heavy, and very intrusive at times, had to edit the registry to stop some of its entries from loading with Windows Vista (which already requires every bit of Ram you have). Once I have done that, it did seem to work quite smoothly. I have not used the PDF editor itself, mainly used the converter which is excellent, never failed, and the quality of the finished PDF is really good. The editor allows you to do everything, from digital signatures, to authoring, to editing existing files, merging, etc. Almost anything you can imagine. I have used Acrobat pro before, but for the price, this is unbeatable, not to mention it is more user friendly and does everything that acrobat does. Would definitely recommend it, though you might need to have a very good look around the interface to get used to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars good for a start, 16 Sept. 2009
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For the complete beginner who wants to learn German, this is definitely a very recommended product. It will not teach you everything you need, but still for a starting point, it is very comprehensive and helpful. Probably the best feature is having the ability to listen to the audio tracks on the move, on your iPod or mp3 player, very handy to get used to hearing the language. It does say that it covers three levels, up to advanced, but still you will not a lot more. Of course, learning this way is a lot nicer than reading boring grammar books, and losing interest. Here, you can find real time conversations, which is a must for anyone to listen to native speakers, and learn the proper pronunciation. Installation is quite easy and fast, and the interface does seem a bit confusing at the beginning, then you will get used to all the tabs, and navigation around. Have not tried it with Vista, so not sure how well it will work on it. Would definitely recommend it for anyone interested in learning German, quite comprehensive, easy to use and most importantly entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, 3 Sept. 2009
one of the best drama/comedy shows I have seen, and continuing from season 1, and 2, this season does not fail to continue being just brilliant. Both situation and physical comedy really leap ahead in this season, though there are some moments where you think that you have seen that before, and it is repetitive, but there is always that minute difference that makes it better. Every character in the show is brilliant, and for me the ones that really stood out in this season are that of the Janitor and the gorgeous Dr. Elliot, two of my favorite characters in the show, in addition to Dr. Cox, who adds a lot to the show. Very addictive, and entertaining and after Friends, this is the best American comedy I have seen. Cannot wait to watch the rest of the seasons, if you have not started watching this already, you are missing a lot.
