This review is from: Scosche fitRAIL IPD2FR Mounting Adapter for iPad, Exercise Equipment
Pros: good design
Cons: Does NOT work if your iPad has a cover! The bottom bracket and top clip are ONLY designed for a "naked" iPad.
Who leaves their iPad naked... Especially if its going to be mounted on exercise equipment or in a vehicle?
Other Thoughts: This actually gave us a cheap & easy way to mount an iPad on the dash of our Mercedes Sprinter RV dash... Except we have to take our iPad out of its water / dust / drop proof case to mount it in this bracket. DUMB since all Scosche had to do was make the bottom bracket & top clip a little wider to accommodate iPad cases.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Parallels Desktop 7 For Mac
Pros: THE best way to run Windows on a Mac
I've been using Parallels for years and its definitely THE best choice to run Windows on our Macs. We have to run WinXP Pro for a couple of WinBlows only programs (TurboTax Business and 3 commercial real estate applications) and also to use our Fujitsu fi-5110C scanner.
Another HUGE benefit running Parallels is handling WHEN (not IF) Windows implodes. Restoring a Windows PC on a real PC is a nightmare. With Parallels, all you need is to routinely make a copy of the ONE file that makes up your Windows VM ("Virtual Machine") onto an external hard drive. WHEN (not if) Windows implodes, just trash your imploded VM then restore your backup VM and you're back in business in MINUTES, NOT hours or days! Been there, done that!
Cons: Parallels 7 requires an Intel Core 2 Duo or newer processor (4+ virtual cores)... Won't run on my original MacBook Pro because it only has a Core Duo processor (only 2 virtual cores)... but Parallels 6 works (albeit slowly on this Core Duo) and Apple's BootCamp runs acceptablyREAD FULL REVIEW
