    3-0 out of 5 stars A delight--but...
    I had little trouble installing this game, even though I had to use the patch. It's a hoot, a delight to play. Yes, you'll need to change the default controls. My gripe? The "Save" feature is dreadful, you can only save in highly specific situations, usually at the beginning and end of a level (unless I'm doing something wrong, always possible). But it's fairly easy to figure out and just a lot of fun to play.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just A Great Game.
    I can't describe Lego Star Wars II in any other way but awesome.It is the perfect recipe of fun for everyone.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Pain to install but worth it...
    I have to agree with some of the other reviewers, this game was a pain in the a** to install, however once you do get it going it is more than worth it.The anti-piracy software (Securom) makes it a pain to install and in fact it will not install as is out of the box.You need to go to the web site and download an update patch to get it going.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not Much New
    Kris, et all. Like many reviewers in the past, I have to agree there are no significant features to warrant upgrading.If there's a new feature (not many for most users) that you're dieing for, certainly upgrade.I upgraded (regrettably) since there was a new feature to delete all Bills area out.I had two phantom bills which kept showing up and every month an additional set would show up as past due.The number of past dues would have kept increasing every month. The short version is this feature (delete all Bills area) did not work for me.After discussing the issue with MS, the solution was to export every account (investments have two accounts) to a QIF file and the one at a time re-import each QIF file in.This was an absolute brutal recovery and I've spent well over 35 - 40 hours getting it cleaned up.After each import you have to delete the duplicate/double posts in both accounts.As one web site once noted, this is not for the faint-of-heart.One of the features toted in this version is the budget improvement.So in fairness, I decided to test this out.I really didn't see any improvements during the interview portion, but afterwards the budget screen just shows a tan box where the cash flow used to be.Basically, it didn't work (keep in mind I basically started from scratch with the imports).I'm not impressed.The bottom line:Don't upgrade just because there is a new version.If there's something you have to have, then sure upgrade if people say it (the to-die-for feature) works.I rate this a 2 for current MS Money Users and a 3 for users who have no Personal Finance Management (PFM) software.If you are torn between Quicken and MS Money as a new user, go with Quicken because most professional/reviewers like Q the best.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for managing your finances.
    I have been using Microsoft Money 2003 for years and recently upgraded to Microsoft Money 2007 Deluxe.I initially tried the 90-day free trial from the Microsoft website.The download and installation only took a few minutes and the data transfer only took seconds.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Big dissapointment
    I bought and installed Microsoft Money 2007 Deluxe.It installed fine with no errors.When I launch the program, it launches fine but when I go to run the reports, they don't work.I tried uninstaling and re-installing several times and no luck.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Leaves Ghost in the dust ! Great results either using it installed or booting via CD
    I never used the trial versions and then later upgradedby purchasing the serial # or key # like some other reviewers did.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly
    I've been trying a number of backup programs and thought I had a pretty good one but needed something that would create a drive image and so bought Acronis for that purpose. However, it worked so well for the image backup, that I also tried it for my regular backups. Now it's the only backup program I use.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Acronis True Image Backup 9.0
    In terms of value, reliability, and ease of use, Acronis True Image 9 stands head and shoulders above most of the other backup software out there (e.g. Ghost, Dantz Retrospect, to name but two). Don't look to the folks at Acronis for great product support, however, because you're not likely to get it ... at least I never have, in the three years or so that I've been using their products. A couple of hints to those new to this software: (1) If you are installing your Acronis secure zone on a dual option Firewire/USB external hard drive, DO NOT use USB; always, always, always use Firewire instead. (No matter what they may tell you, True Image 9 IS NOT properly supported by prevailing USB 2.0 architecture, let alone the older 1.1, and if your external hard drive is USB 2 only, you may be in for a lot of headaches.) (2) If you are reinstalling Windows, haven't updated your applications in some time, AND you happen to own Acronis Privacy Suite as well, DO NOT download antispyware definitions updates directly from the Privacy Suite GUI; instead, go to the Acronis Updates page. Download the largest (oldest) applicable updates file from there, and install OFFLINE. Otherwise you will find that True Image 9 stops working and has to be reinstalled. (3) If you have a printer or other peripheral hooked up to your USB port(s), DISCONNECT it (them) BEFORE starting any backup operations. Good luck. This is a good product. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Improvements don't help if you forget the basics...
    Quicken 2007 has some nice new features - but it appears to have some fundamental basic problems as well.I seriously question just how much testing was done before it was released.The first problem I encountered was that the tax reports were wrong - when I converted from Quicken 2004 to Quicken 2007.Seems the file conversion program missed many tax line assignments - and the most basic was depreciation.I'm still looking but I can't find depreciation in any of the tax line item lists!Leave out depreciation and all your reports are wrong (if you use depreciation that is)The other problem was updating stock prices.Q2007 can find all my stocks and update with current prices - but can't find any of those stocks for their historical prices!And as usual with new Quicken versions - they still haven't fixed the problem when you pick "earliest to date" for a report, it gives an invalid start date 0/0/1920 and then gives you an error message and tells you to enter a valid date!
    1-0 out of 5 stars Quicken is a piece of junk
    Quicken Deluxe 2007 is certainly not user friendly nor intuitive. The worst part, however, is the fact that when I print I get only micro printing (perhaps 1/4 point which is too small to read). I have tried to get help from tech support but they are worthless. I highly recommend that you do not buy Quicken Deluxe 2007. There must be some other financial software out there, and anything else would surely work better.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Frustration with software bugs and LOUSY tech support
    I have been using Quicken since 1999 very happily.Unfortunately, I decided to upgrade from 2005 to 2007.It will not let me print reports, and every time I try, it crashes my computer.I spent over 5 hours on the phone with Tech Support in India and they just kept running through their pre-scripted solutions which never fixed the problem.Now I'm going back to using 2005 and will lose all the data that I entered since I upgraded to 2007.I'm VERY unhappy with this product and with how Intuit handled (or didnt' handle) my problem.Stick with your current version.Quicken is a great product, but the 2007 version has too many problems. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars OK but Don't Bet Your Life On It!!
    I've purchased the latest S&T for the last 4 maybe 5 years and have become somewhat dependent on it for accurate routing whenever I thought we needed directions.In the past, one attribute of the program always annoyed me, namely, the strange text directions.I still read them a couple times, print them, grab a yellow highlighter and select the text that made sense.Then I augment the directions with my own notes in the margin.I could never figure out why msoft needed 5 instructions to tell me to stay on the same route.If you've ever used the product, you know what I mean.With this latest version, that problem/issue still persists but there's something new: errors and wrong directions!!I usually compare "fastest" to "shortest" routes.I have seen numerous cases where I had to trick the software to show me the most correct route.An example would be selecting the wrong direction off an exit of an interstate or even better, routing you in the oppposite direction to get to a road when there is a more direct route.I always update the traffic/highway info everytime.The GPS interface works fine; would be nice to have voices but I really don't miss that feature.Biggest impression: my wife and I have learned to not blindly trust it but rather we challenge every turn and pay very close to what it is telling us as we approach decision points.This year I almost went to Delorme but its reviews were even more disappointing.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Probably OK for planning, horrible in the car
    I have substantial experience with both the Toyota and Honda in-car GPS systems and frankly feel somewhat lost in a car without one.

    I have been a gnucash user since 2002, but needed a windows solution (also, gnucash 1.8 reporting sucks).So I bought Quicken 2006 from Costco last year, but it sat on the shelf for quite some time as the porting from gnucash isn't trivial [...].By the time I had all the ducks lined up, Quicken 2007 came out and, I feel like such an idiot now, I bought the upgrade.I figured I might as well jump to the latest version.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Does not covert Money files
    With quite disappointment, I found that Quicken 2007 does not convert Money files even if its sales material says so.In the Quicken support forums, Quicken Steve writes, "The Money data converter will not be updated for Quicken 2007. The decision was made to allocate engineering resources to issues that affect people that are new to personal finance software and people upgrading from prior versions of Quicken instead of people switching from one software package to another."

    I'm the last one to recommend a Micosoft product, but if you're looking for a good finance managing application, don't look here. Go back to money 2007.

    With quite disappointment, I found that Quicken 2007 does not convert Money files even if its sales material says so.In the Quicken support forums, Quicken Steve writes, "The Money data converter will not be updated for Quicken 2007. The decision was made to allocate engineering resources to issues that affect people that are new to personal finance software and people upgrading from prior versions of Quicken instead of people switching from one software package to another."
    1-0 out of 5 stars Ouch
    I'm the last one to recommend a Micosoft product, but if you're looking for a good finance managing application, don't look here. Go back to money 2007.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Final Draft 7 does the job.
    When I wrote my incredible screenplay on Final Draft 7 I was amazed. My first screenplay was done on Word and took forever to format. The only problem is that my screenplay sits and waits for representation--it's an awe-inspiring story and I can be reached at wlux22 at aol dot com.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Beginner's Thoughts.
    Even though I have done a lot of writing in my life, I had never written a complete screenplay.I've had lots of ideas, but had never written them down.I finally decided to get some of these ideas out on paper.I knew from talking with friends who already work in the industry that script readers are very particular when it comes to the format of a screenplay and that one formatting error can cause someone to throw away an otherwise wonderful script.I considered other screenwriting software, but after speaking with my industry insider friends and doing other research I felt that FINAL DRAFT was the best software to get.I've been using FINAL DRAFT 7 for awhile now and have not had any problems with it.For writing screenplays, I love this software.I have not had any trouble with the software not loading and I've not lost anything I've ever written (though I tend to save a lot of my work frequently anyway).I've read most of the other reviews about FINAL DRAFT 7 on Amazon and it seems that people either really like the software or they hate it.I fall into the former category and have found it quite useful.For a beginning screenwriter, it works wonderfully.The only downside I have with the software is that it is quite expensive.As an educator, I was able to get a discount. FINAL DRAFT offers a discount for students, educators, and military personnel, but if you're not able to get that discount then the software is about double the cost that it should be.

    4-0 out of 5 stars What a transformation!
    Reformatted previously written scripts.The script was transformed to a professional looking one.I was going to rate this a 5 but reformatting is a slow process but well worth it!I have still a lot to learn! Loved it immediately. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not A Cheap PhotoShop Alternative - Better!!
    It's a shame Paint Shop Pro (PSP) is so often described as simply an alternative to PhotoShop. In reality, Paint Shop Pro is better. While both are fairly evenly matched when it comes to image editing, PSP also has a full set of graphics editing tools that PhotoShop mostly lacks. These tools allow one to draw and paint in vector, raster, and art media layers for the creation and editing of clip art, business logos, web graphics, and similar artwork. Reviewers (magazine or other) rarely mention this when comparing the two products, instead pointing to a few additional esoteric image editing tools while claiming PhotoShop is the superior product.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Go find a copy of version 7
    I guess Corel thought PSP would sell better if it was dumbed down for the masses. I am in complete agreement with everyone who says Corel has done a bad number on it.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Goodbye Corel
    Well, I finally got around to it: uninstalling PSP X. It was just a waste of perfectly good harddrive space. And besides, I have PSP 9 installed, which is just a better program than PSP X. I'm only sorry that I purchased the "upgrade" to PSP X when it was first offered by Corel, after they bought out JASC. What a waste of money. Now I hear that Corel has released PSP PHOTO XI. Yes, what was once a fine image processing software program has been relegated to being a mere photo enhancement program. No thanks, Corel! ... Read more

    I purchased this game through the EA store.It shipped quickly; I got it the day after it was released.The graphics for the PC are much improved from the previous versions.I am very happy with the gameplay, however, between Pro & All-Pro there is a major difference in skill level required.I am able to play well in Pro mode but in All-Pro I can barely do anything.The computer opponent is just too difficult.

    Here is my review of Microsoft Money 2006 Premium, that is, last year's model. Honestly, after I installed Money 2007, I simply could not find any differences from Money 2006. Whatever improvements Microsoft put in, I don't use.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Some regrets
    I regret that Microsoft has removed items I had on my last edition (2005)
    2-0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE!.NET 2.0 is too buggy.
    I agree with all of the positives of other reviewers. Five stars for the program. Unfortunately, it runs on .NET 2.0, which is so no ready for use that Microsoft doesn't even have an FAQ page about it on their website. Version 2.0 is incompatible with many programs that run on .NET 1.1 and will wreak havoc on your system. Examples: The Complete New Yorker Viewer becomes non-functional and you may not be able to access other computers on your home network. Wait for Microsoft to fix the buggy .NET 2.0 before considering buying. Stick with Encarta 2006 for now.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A universe of knowledge on your screen
    While Microsoft Encarta Premium 2006 marked Microsoft's commitment to the Web - Microsoft Encarta Premium 2007 marks its commitments to its own technology. The new Encarta relies on Microsoft's powerful, flexible, scalable, and adaptable .Net Framework 2.0. There a price to pay, of course: the time it takes to install the product is much longer and the user is henceforth prompted to constantly download security updates from Microsoft. It is also recommended to turn off your firewall and anti-virus products during installation.

    I was stunned when I started using Pages v2... because I'd been convinced that Apple would never get a word processor right. AppleWorks pretty much sucked (tedious interface, limited capabilities, never fully updated for Mac OS X). TextEdit is nothing more than a rough draft of an application.

    "Not too long ago, Zoombinis enjoyed the good life. Though they alllooked slightly different--different eyes, noses, hair, feet--such differencesmeant nothing to the Zoombinis. And so they lived happily on Zoombini Isle,making small, useful products, which were prized the world over." So begins anunsuspectingly addictive CD-ROM, featuring uncommonly fun reasoning games thatrequire serious problem solving and math-thinking work. Yet the perils that facethis cheerful society are not as fearsome as the amount of time you'llpotentially spend on this pursuit.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why I like Zoombinis
    Hi, my name is Manuel, I am 6 years old and I like Zoombinis a lot because of all the adventures they go through to pass activities and discover new lands. I also like them because the stories are very exciting.
    5-0 out of 5 stars So much fun!
    This is one of the very few computer games where there are no glitches. The graphics, sound, and over all logic of this game are wonderous. Though some people may say it is for younger kids- they are wrong, my olmost fourteen year old cousin loves it- and even adults like it! It's not the same puzzle over and over agin either- clear directions and changing goals and directions give this game a little lift. There is so much more I could talk about with this game- but I don't want to bore you- overall this game is great!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love'd this game!
    I was probably 14 when I played Zoombinis. My aunt had it for my cousins and well for her too, and thought that I would really like it. Not only do you learn and have fun it's so addicting. The best part about it is that you don't even realize you are learning. I am now 24 and recently purchased the game for myself. Not because I need a refresher course but because I enjoyed it so much. I think that this is a great game for the classroom. I've encouraged many of my friends that educate to install into their classrooms. ... Read more

    I am fluent in Spanish. So, the Rosetta Stone Italian language software, was perfect for me. It is very easy to understand, to follow and to learn. If you study one hour per day, in one week you are going to remember several words and phrases. I don't have any regret at all, I think my investment was worthwhile.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not exactly top notch but it will get you there
    This review might be alittle hard on the product but I wasnt impressed.Expecting something revolutionary instead the lessons were kind of like going though High School again with one big exception.They dont give you a writen translation of what every thing means.Rossetta Stone focuses on pictures and the actual sounding out of words spoken.In the program you are presented a picture and in Italian a narrator tells you what is going on or what the picture is.However what he is saying is not directly translated in written words.Its up to you to figure out what he is saying based on what you see in the pictures.So pretty much you are not sure at times which words spoken are verbs or nouns.They do their best to single out the verbs in which they give you multiple pictures of ppl performing the same actions.However still its up to you to figure that out.Other than that its a great program.It forces you to pronounce italian with an italian accent using the pictures you see.You are able to write italian sentences using the same technique (still no english translation).I chose a language I already knew to try the program out.If I was a true beginner...I might have a hard time learning this language and I would by far not be fluent in it.Thats for sure. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars So how long before the patches are released to address bugs?
    OK, so I bought 2006 back in July, because I'd previously been at 2003, and needed to upgrade so that I could take advantage of the online banking and account download, which was going obsolete with 2003 (Grrr.)
    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't upgrade to this product.
    I purchased and installed the new version of Quicken Home & Business.The first thing I noticed was that some software design genius decided that it would be a good idea to put black text on a dark background in the account bar.Also when the balance amounts are checked to not show in the total they a light grey color and become almost invisible.I searched everywhere for a place to change the color and after contacting Intuit I found out that you can't change it.
