  • Amazon Customer - Missing An Important Editing Feature

    I am giving it one star because Microsoft Office 2016 seems like a downgrade from Microsoft Office 2013. Microsoft 2016 now has fewer of the useful editing features than Microsoft 2013. Most importantly to me, the Grammar and Style checking feature in Microsoft Office 2016 (as of the version I downloaded on 11/12/15) is lacking when compared with Microsoft Office 2013. MS Office 2016 does not track contractions or place two spaces after the period and such. In fact, you no longer have a choice of picking Grammar and Style. You can choose only Grammar. So, in my humble opinion, MS Office 2016 is not as functional a product as MS Office 2013, which has some decent editing features. Now I do not know if this is a permanent downgrade in this feature for MS Office 2016 or if some upgrades are coming that adds back this particular feature. I have seen posts on Microsoft concerning this matter that are contradictory. In any case, if the "grammar and style" are features you use, then you might want to avoid Microsoft Office 2016 until you know the features have been added back. I will consider increasing this rating once this missing feature is restored.

  • Georgia Broeder - Horrible

    I really do not know where people are getting that this series is so great. One, it's like 5000000000 books - I'm sorry but I do not have the time to invest in a series that long - who the hell does??? Does it ever end?? The characters are mediocre at best, grammatical and spelling errors throughout. I've read 5 of them until I realized there were SO MANY MORE - the first two books - were somewhat well structured and kept you going - I thought surely the story would end at book 3 - this just seems like a crap-tastic plot for this author to just keep making money off the poor suckers that want to continue this series. BOOO!! Give me a good 3-5 book series and I'll surely continue to buy them - throw out 50 mediocre books and I'm done -- not spending more money on a crap twilight-esque series.

  • CURTISBALLARDSR - Good quality garden tool set

    This is a good quality two piece set of garden shears that allow you to trim everything from the smallest stems to finger size limbs off of trees. They are made from good quality steel and have excellent rapping on the handle themselves so that they not only do not wear out your hand but also will not slip if you become sweaty while working in the yard. They both include a handle Locking System which also provides additional safety for children. Straight blade shears are made for floor trimming and pruning where is the large curved blades are much better for cutting large Limbs and things that are more durable. The blades come with an extremely sharp edge and as long as you follow the same angle you should be able to keep them in the same amount of sharpness. Good beginning 28 Garden tool set that everyone should have if they have a home Garden. I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for this honest and unbiased review.

  • ok2dv8 - Let the Christmas light wars begin!

    Ok so I know that it’s not Christmas time right now but I am always looking for decorations for my house. I have seen other houses at Christmas time with some pretty cool decorations. It seems that we are always competing with our neighbors each year to see who has the most and coolest Christmas decorations. So far every year, we have beaten them out. Now that I have this new cool laser projector, I just know that I am going to have the coolest house in the whole neighborhood again this year. It’s Christmas light wars!

  • Kathleen S. - Not as good as the original type

    I have been using the ORIGINAL Salonpas patches for years, wouldn't buy anything else. The new patches, on individual papers, no ribs on the material are not up to the standard of the originals. They do not last as long, they do not provide as much relief and the worst part is they do not stay attached to the skin as the old type did. The minute you sweat, or even get warm from outdoor temperature, they come off. All you need do is touch them when your warm and they buckle and are no longer stay on. I am hoping I am able to find the old type on line or in a store, but if not, will have to find a new brand. This was the best and quickest relief I could find and bought plenty in the years I've used them. You should go back to the original type or at least let the consumer choose the type they prefer.
