I've read many poor ratings of this product and was even told not to purchase from an actual Bose store employee, but my long history with Bose and knowing how they design their products proved correct...again. For smaller rooms as an upgrade to TV speakers, this product is perfect. It gives great clarity and bass at a level intended by the source soundtrack. If you are looking for boom box bass sound, this (or Bose for that matter) is not the product for you. If you are looking for true clarity and sound as designed in your TV or DVD soundtracks, this is a great product for the price.
I use my tablet daily and have never has a single problem with it. I would highly recommend it for the price.
Tilex Mold and Mildew Remover really works! I am so pleased with the results and extremely glad I gave it a try. I had some significant mold and mildew buildup in areas of my mostly unventilated shower and had tried a few different cleansers with little to marginal success. It is such a relief to have it gone and even with very little effort overall, just a little light scrubbing in a few areas while other areas simply required rinsing. I did leave it on for about 30 minutes to be sure for this initial cleaning with it. I wish I could find a natural cleaner that is this effective, but it is great to have this product available and will continue to use as needed!! Thank you Tilex!
Edward Tufte is a Yale political scientist turned information architect who brings 1500 years of analytic design together (including the histories of science and art) to create a very unique presentation that ET delivers in person each year to packed houses in large cities. He is known for his intense criticism of PowerPoint and his work on the Columbia Accident Investigation Board that catapulted him to fame alongside Richard P. Feynmann, who said [about the Challenger Disaster], "For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled (p.168)."
Beautiful Evidence has nine chapters (Mapped Pictures; Sparklines; Links and Causal Arrows; Words, Numbers Images; Fundamental Principles of Analytic Design; Corruption in Evidence Presentations; Cognitive Style of PowerPoint; Sculptural Pedestals; and Landscape Sculptures) and, although all of the chapters are not uniformly strong (notably Sparklines and both of the Sculptures), two of them (Fundamental Principles and Corruption) are better than anything you could find anywhere else. It's content that you would want undergraduates to take away with them.
Beautiful Evidence is Tufte's greatest hits volume and last year I used it to teach table and figure making and even paper writing to undergraduate Digital Technology and Culture majors at Washington State University, emphasizing practice rather than theory. As in each of Tufte's books, figures, tables, maps, cartoons, paintings, photos, and illustrations from 1500 years of human history stand alongside one another to illustrate such design principles as to escape flatland by adding scales, diagrams, overlays, numbers, words, and images to make "mapped pictures" to document and present evidence, to skillfully use arrows to suggest cause, and to show skepticism whenever stumbling onto official reports that use the passive voice or the bullet-list format (pp.142-3).
Although I had taught Tufte's Envisioning Information to undergraduates for years, there were lessons for me in bringing Beautiful Evidence to a group of undergraduates, as there seemed to be a minority that despised Tufte for his standards, his moral imperative that evidence presentation is a moral act as well as an intellectual activity, and his emphasis on historical precedent--in short, things that all educators and librarians hold dear. One student called it "a picture book for adults" that contained commonsense stuff that everyone knew. And, although there may be some truth here, the good thing about Tufte is that he is all about showing the design principles that the world doesn't have to reinvent but simply carry forward.
Additionally, Beautiful Evidence has (at least) two other bonuses for undergraduate students, its comparison of PowerPoint with other methods of presenting information and its utter skewering of a book that presents a study of artists' paintings and value (pp.148-9) that was published by a Cambridge, MA publisher. Both offer great Tufte lessons. Energized undergraduates will argue against Tufte's condemnation of PowerPoint by saying that it is a more dynamic tool than Tufte makes it out to be because the "pitch" has a place in modern life. Tufte's skillful analysis of the study of artist's paintings (that illustrates a new term, economisting, with accents on the con and mist) will seem even more amazing after checking the book out over Amazon to discover all the favorable reviews associated with it.
Whether Beautiful Evidence is an introduction to Edward Tufte's work or simply the latest in a successful string of four books, readers will find something of interest. New readers will discover an explosion of beautiful, colorful-but-integrated content and seasoned readers will find what has come to be Tufte's style: a minimalist, no-nonsense text where the references are elevated to a place of honor along the right-hand side of the page and the images take center stage.
As a PC person for over 25 years, I finally switched to Mac - but I can't leave MS Office!
I've looked at a few of the offerings on Mac, but there really is nothing else like office - and it is used by Everyone.
My workplace is stuck in the dark ages - Windows XP and Office 2003.
And, my PC that died this past spring was on Office 2000 (?).
So, I'm still getting used to the new features and surely haven't started to use most of them.
But it does work great for me.
