I've just scrolled down thru many other reviews - and think that now
all I have to say is -"Me too, I loved it!" I have wanted to read something by
McDermott, just never did; and now I am happy to be a new member of
her fan club. I was stunned by how beautiful her writing could be - while
being so spare. I was amazed by how much I got to know about the
characters - while not reading reams of description. I was surprised by
how I was easily able to follow the plot turns - without her having to give
us every last detail. This is a wonderful story told by a woman at the
end of her life - and it's had a big impact on me as I hit my "later years". . .
there's so much feeling and so much life in her memories. McDermott
is helping me see how memories become a bigger part of our lives
as we age. Fabulous book.
I have had my Prime for a week now. I have tested just about every aspect of use that would be usable for my needs.
WiFi/Bluetooth/video playback/PDF reading/battery life/Web Surfing
*WiFi I have had no issues for connecting with anything. I'm not to particularly needy with my signal strength so i have not really been to anal about the strength but if I can send a wireless print job to a machine over 300 ft away its all good, connecting to customer's WiFi signals, Hospital WiFi and anything that my iPod Touch picks up my Transformer Prime will pick up.
*Bluetooth I have been syncing any device or phone to send mp3's, and video left and right
*Video Playback, I run many point of sale booths for concessions at local events. Using this for video has been very good for the one event used so far. I have downloaded 1080p resolution videos and this tablet has yet to hiccup.
*PDF reading, I know this would be a standard for many thing that has adobe acrobat but It is important for me like tonight When I sat down with a few doctors that wanted documented proof of product information, so i just used Polaris office to bring up the information. I'm also using this as a replacement for Service manual, Service documentation, Part breakdowns for any equipment that I would normally need a laptop to look up or an internet connection.
*battery life, I pull my transformer Prime off of the charger at about 7:30am and i usually get home about 5pm. that's about 9-1/2 I'm usually at about 45% to 30% battery life after using it for the above uses
*Web Surfing, when ever I go to a customer site I connect to the internet and log in and out for work, check my companies dispatch screens to look for what i am to do for the day. I also use it for connecting through a VPN to look at inventory for parts and pricing Inquiries. and to check on company vehicle GPS to look for other local technicians to assist if need be. I have used the installed browser and added Firefox, i have to say that using Firefox seems to be faster for certain sites and ASUS's browser seems to be better for others. its all where i need to go to know what browser to use.
I have noticed a problem with the screen glitching when i have a lot of programs running, but closing this out ends that.
I have yet to see any real problems with any hardware or software.
btw if you are looking for a game get RIPTIDE!!!
Wouldn't expect less from the makers of The Sims. Another great game! Completely fun and addicting.
When I first played this game it was a little bit weird how you just started eating food particles, but when your creation grew legs and started socializing with other people it became fantastic! One of the great things here is that you can never go wrong in how you make your creatures grow. If they are vegetarians in early stages, you know they will be pacific when they become civilized; therefore, if they are carnivorous, they will be aggressive and war-prone. I recommend playing this at least 3 times, differently, to see the outcome of such a small decision on the rest of the civilization in its future. :)
I do have to admit, I was skeptical about buying this game for my 11 year old daughter. It did look sort of childish in the demos, as if only a small child could enjoy it. There were no indications that an older child would like this game at ALL. I went ahead and bought it because we DO have the Kinect, and there are not a whole lot of choices for the Kinect right now. Plus I bought it since it was cheap, and figured I would just resell it if it was not that great.
BOY oh boy was I surprised at this game!!! My daughter has had endless hours of enjoyment out of it! There are so many activities, and it really keeps her busy and interested! Alot of the activities are very challenging, also- and stimulating for her. This game was used that I purchased from Amazon, but it looked almost new except for noticeable wear on the box- it even had the 2 day gold pass inside of it, and the booklet still!
Great buy for the money, would recommend this to any family of any age!
My husband and I also had great fun playing along with our daughter!
