I upgraded to Windows 8 as soon it became available in November 2012. As I am using it more and more, I have grown to love it. Not many apps so far but I am using a few of the wonderful cooking apps they have. When I decide to purchase a tablet, it will have to have Windows 8 so it can be synced to my PC.
Already, I find it fairly easy to sync some of the apps between my laptop and desktop. Some of my favorite apps are Evernote, Allrecipes, Icookbook, Recipe Keeper etc.
love it and still learning all the great things this tablet can do...this was a birthday gift and a good choice.
I bought this pillow at bb&beyond after looking at the sample they had on display. I haven't seen the infomercial. It was a total impulse buy based on how this pillow felt to my hands compared to all the pillows I've bought in my life that ended up not working for me. It felt different - it was a little lumpy but springy (more on that later), and felt ..."crisp".
I've now slept on it for two nights and it's perfect for me. I'm a stomach and side sleeper. The fact that the fill is not uniform, but each piece is springy, means that when I'm on my stomach I can find just the right support for my head but still find air for my nose - not possible with a normal pillow. On my side, it can easily be bunched up and it stays put while maintaining it's support. But the "springy-ness" seems to be the key all around: I don't feel like my head is sinking in so much as being gently bounced upward. That may not sound like it would necessarily be good - I've tried springy pillows before and woken up with all sorts of kinks in my neck - but in this case, for some reason, it works great. I do, also, find it to be very comfortably cool.
So... I'm very happy with this pillow. For my body, this is the best pillow I've ever slept on. And there's the caveat - everyone's body is different. What works for me may not work for you. I'm a little surprised at the tenor of some of the bad reviews - maybe people were expecting something different or more luxurious. But my personal experience is that there really seems to be some method to the madness here whether it turns out to be a good pillow for you or not. If you are someone, like me, who has resorted to sleeping on bunched up sweaters to make up for your pillows deficiencies, you might give it a try.
I do think it's overpriced - I paid less, actually. Having slept on it, I think it was well worth the price I paid, but not necessarily what's being charged here.
I have to admit, I have never written a review on any product I have purchased online. However, the reviews for this product are what motivated me to purchase it so I thought it only fitting to review it myself. I came across this product when searching for ANYTHING that might work to reduce the excess head, face, and neck sweating that I have experienced off and on for a number of years, but in the past couple of years, the sweating has increased to a point of embarrassment. I am 46 yrs old and I have found no correlation to physical activity, the temperature of a room/outdoors, or anything I eat or drink. The sweating may start while I am just sitting in church. The only place I sweat is on my face (under my eyes and on my upper lip), head (along hairline - runs down my face) and on my neck (actually drips from my hair!). After having been to the doctor and having my thyroid and other labs checked, the excess sweating was eventually blamed on early menopause. The thing is, it is not a "hot flash" it is just plain old excessive sweating at random times. I have an executive level job, do a fair amount of presentations, and have interactions with Boards of Directors, etc. and I had a needed to find something that would work. I never know when the sweating will start - no stress, anxiety, or strenuous activity is needed. Needless to say, VERY frustrating and embarrassing.
I had not tried any product previously for the excess sweating. I have been using Sweat Block for only 2 weeks and I have not had one sweating espisode! It is amazing! I did have a some episodes fo a "damp" feeling on my head (which I suspect would have been a full-blown sweat episode previously), but I can deal with feeling "damp" vs. drenched; my hair wasn't dripping and my face/neck was dry. I used the wipes (I have been able to use each wipe more than once) for 3 nights in a row and then again after a week. They have a bit of a smell and dry your skin out some, but i can totally deal with that to have no sweating. I have very sensitive skin on my face and while it burned/tingled some about 5 mins after using the wipes, I did not break out or anything, which was a concern for me. I know the packaging says the wipes are for the underarms only, but I took a chance after reading other reviews and I have not been disappointed. It was certainly worth the cost of the purchase to try Sweat Block and I am hopeful the favorable results will continue long term.
Sheryl Sandberg's book Lean In is a must read for all women in the workforce. I don't agree with everything that Sandberg professes: I wish she had spent more time discussing working single mother's in the workforce - according to a Pew report published in May 2013 there are over 8 million single working moms today. I also believe that there needs to be space to discuss that perhaps many women don't want to "lean in." It's possible that women have different ideals when it comes to measures of success and personal satisfaction. However, here is why I give this book 5 stars: it has created a dialogue. Agree or disagree with the author, this book has put discussions of women in the workforce in the national spotlight. In conversations with other women about this book, reactions have been as varied as "this book changed my life" to "couldn't get past the lack of connection to most working women who don't have access to the support systems of the writer." Read this book and join in the debate; the needs of all working women is a discussion that should continue.
