  • Gavin Scott - Still the gold standard in personal accountingQuicken (and its Quickbooks sibling) are the packages that pretty much single-handedly eliminated the accounting application software business for small to medium sized businesses, and brought easy management of financials into the realm of the personal computer.

    If you're not a Quicken user then this is a great place to start.

    If you are a quicken user, then as others have said this version is incremental rather than revolutionary, and sometimes it feels like the furniture is just being re-arranged to make it feel like a new house even though there's not really that much that's new.

    Quicken makes it easy to do all those record keeping, tax planning, budgeting, and other tasks that you know you need to do, and you keep telling yourself you're going to get around to. It pretty much takes your hand and leads you thought the process, even if you don't know anything about accounting.

  • jsmeth - Its about the apps for me.First off, and I can't believe I'm still having to say this. Don't pay more than the MSRP for this device or any device for that matter.

    That being said, I did not get my Transformer Prime from Amazon, but rather was given one as a gift (they told me it came from Staples).

    I mostly use the device for work related functions, checking email, browsing the web, and taking notes during meetings. But there is some entertainment value added to it as well, such as games and watching videos. I've had mine now for about a month and I couldn't be happier with the device.

    I like the quick settings button, as I am calling it, it is a nice touch to quickly change the screen brightness, turn on and off wifi, and change the performance modes right from the bottom toolbar.

    I have had no problems with Ice Cream Sandwich, but I have no basis of comparison since I chose to update as soon as I recieved the device.

    To finish, this review is mostly about the apps. I love the apps that came pre-installed from Asus. I've connected the cloud storage to both my work and home computers and as long as I am connected to the internet I have access to my files and other things. I also really like that it comes with Splashtop remote desktop for free. I connected that to my work computer and couldn't be happier. It allows me to access software and applications on my tablet that I may not otherwise be able to connect to. Lastly I enjoy the Supernote app that came installed. This app allows me to not only type out notes, but I can write directly on the sceen and it will appear in the notebook. The organization features that allow you to create notebooks, and pages is also fantastic. (And let me say I am addicted to Zen Pinball, and some of the other Nvidia suggested games for the tegra 3 processor).

    I was already convinced before I saw one in real life that I wanted to get the transformer prime based simply on the hardware presented. But had I known how useful the pre-installed apps were going to be I would have attempted to get the prime much sooner.
  • Patrick OFlaherty "Excite My Ears" - Great Photo-Bio of Lizfor 78 years nobody photographed better than Elizabeth Taylor, whether it was on the big screen, papparazi or international photojournalistic images, her beauty and personality was always evident. This book is a nice collection of phototgraphs dating from Elizabeth Taylor's childhood years to her waning years on the screen and in later life as an American icon. The book contains light anecdotal and biographical text of personal events and landmark Hollywood aspects of her storied life. My copy has made the rounds with friends and family who saw it on the coffee table and asked to borrow it -- and later bought a copy of their own for themselves. For fans and collector's of Liz and Hollywood legends this is a no-brainer purchase.
