Intuit Quickbooks Premier 2014 - Download
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs another incarnation of super proprietary business software 12/23/2013

This review is from: Intuit Quickbooks Premier 2014 - Download

Pros: This is comprehensive software that will surely run your whole business. If you learn the Intuit way, you will need little else to successfully run your business.

Cons: The software is extremely convoluted. It's terrible to figure out how to use it. I've had little exp with the software and do not like it at all because they expect you to run absolutely everything through it. You must follow the process and use their not-at-all user-friendly interface.
Fortunately, this product is for my father who uses it to a fraction of its potential and finds it much harder to use than the 2002 version that he upgraded from.

Other Thoughts: 4 stars because, you should know what you're buying and if you do, it's good stuff. Only the product's functionality and reliability should affect the rating.

Overall, if you drink the kool-aid it'll be a good buy but if you are specific as to how you want things done, excel, numbers and google spreadsheets (to a lesser degree) are still the best cornerstone of business IMO.

G-Flare 100 Lumens Compact Aluminum Flashlight - SOS Flashing, Focus Control, Dimming Control
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Tiny, bright, great beam width control, 1 AA battery, I feel awesome every time I take this thing out.

Cons: Brightness is not controllable.

Other Thoughts: I love this thing. I have about 4 of them, give them as presents and everyone who uses mine wants one.

I carry it in my laptop bag (without a battery in it) along with extra batteries, just in case.

Lots of people complain about the battery life, which is dumb. I'm not sure how you could get as much brightness for longer from one AA.

If you need an emergency light, something to keep in your car or hiking bag, this is an amazing find for $25.

G-Flare 100 Lumens Compact Aluminum Flashlight - SOS Flashing, Focus Control, Dimming Control
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I've bought four of these, I've had two for a year and was super excited when they went on sale again.

This light is super-bright and compact.

The SOS function, I can't really see coming in handy but I'm sure I'll be glad to have it if it does.

I keep a battery in it backwards while it sits and turn it around when I need it. The light travels with me in my everyday carry and has come in handy many times.

The battery life seems to be decent seeing as it takes one AA. I've seen others complain about this but I disagree.

Cons: Getting the SOS function not to happen is a little tricky when you first get the light but that's about it.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a reading light, something to brighten a room or long battery life, go elsewhere.
This light is compact and bright and it does both extremely well.
