This review is from: Luxury Lane Men's Cashmere Lined Lambskin Leather Gloves - Black - Size L
Pros: Extremely soft interior. Leather looks very good. These are comfortable for long drives. After about a year, they still look new.
Warm but not stifling---these gloves hit the sweet spot of keeping my hands warm enough to be comfortable without ever making them sweat.
Cons: These will not keep your hands warm on a long excursion in frigid weather. For that, you would want real outdoorsman gloves.
This is not really a negative, as I doubt anyone would look at them and think, "I'll be good for 4 hours at -15"---but Newegg requires something for a review.
Other Thoughts: These gloves are a little on the snug side. If you're on the border between M and L, you definitely need to go L.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hamilton Beach 64650 6 Speed Classic Stand/Hand Mixer Silver
Pros: Smooth mixing, powerful enough for thicker batter, reasonable attachments.
Cons: Turntable is awkward.
Other Thoughts: Unless you need an impeccable turntable or plan on a tremendous amount of baking, this is an excellent alternative to spending $200-$300 on a KitchenAid mixer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade
Pros: Fastest and easiest installation of any OS I've done to date.
Metro interface offers some convenience for desktop users once configured.
New features like ISO mounting and the updated Task Manager eliminated the need for a lot of third-party utilities.
And, finally, Windows has a decent file copy capability. Better late than never, even if late is about 20 years.
Cons: Half of the default Metro apps are worthless clutter. Since they can be removed with three clicks, this isn't really a big deal.
Other Thoughts: On previous versions, cleaning up the Start menu was entirely optional. Not here. For Windows 8, organizing your Start screen is the single most effective way to make your computer feel like a powerful, efficient tool.
As with any new software, there is a learning curve. It's rather tame and definitely worth the effort for those coming from XP or Vista.
