  • Booksquire - I'm Embarrassed

    Not enough Biotin to do anything for one's hair and I feel embarrassed to have purchased it for my skin. In theory drinking liquid collagen would be a nice miracle. In practice - well just save your money! Shame on all of us who buy into this nonsense. Youth in a grape syrup liquid. smh. They dont even have to try to come up with something plausible anymore. I'd fall for anything. :(

  • D. Saville - I bought Home Designer Suite 2015 because it bared a strong resemblance to the old Windows 95-98 Broderbund product that was so

    I had used early versions of Broderbund's 3D Home Architect years ago and have been frustrated by newer versions and every other similar product I've tried since. I bought Home Designer Suite 2015 because it bared a strong resemblance to the old Windows 95-98 Broderbund product that was so easy to use. After using this for a few minutes it became clear that this is the same software. I'm sure it's had bells and whistles added, but at it's core, it's the same software. All the tool buttons I'm already familiar with are there. All the object options work the same.

  • Tracy Foote - Kids ByPassed in 24 hours - Admin Password

    I was very impressed with this system. I just wanted something to block certain sites for my teens so I knew they would focus on homework instead of facebook. I also wanted something to limit the time so the computer would kick them off instead of me dealing with "Ok, I will get off, just a sec..." and 20 min later being told the same thing.

  • Peterson - Short antenna, unfortunately short on performance.

    I've had the antenna installed for 10 days on my 2011 Mini Countryman. That has been long enough to confirm that it DOES affect satellite radio service. It fits fine and has a clean profile on the car. But in a downtown setting the antenna is affected by the buildings. In the suburbs, driving street lined with mature trees the signal is also inconsistent. It also has random signal hiccups on the open freeway. This just doesn't come close to the factory antenna. I expect to return it and get the Mini factory stubby.
