[Version 2.2.0]

Amazingly, painfully slow downloads (admittedly, that may just be eMusic's servers), no possibility to pause single downloads, and - worst of all - no ability to resume partial downloads after a crash. The last point is staggering, when you consider that a, eBook consists of chapters, which load into single files. Unfortunately, those disappeared when the program went down.

I tried the emusic store exactly once and then deleted my trial account. Not worth a visit.

Incredibly slow and buggy. I tried to use this program to synchronize folders on two Macs (after getting the license in a bundle), and gave up in frustration. Even if you get it running (about once in every four tries), it takes forever to set up a sync, and then you can go to bed, sleep for eight hours, have breakfast, and it is still not done syncing 200 MB of data.

1Passwrod is pretty much the gold standard for password protection on the Mac. Great integration with the apps for iOS devices, and it is continuously being improved. I've been using it for about 18 months now and recommend it to everybody.

The reason for this review is that a few days ago I had a problem with the Safari plugin. My first real problem with the app, and I couldn't solve it myself. So I mailed their customer support, and within a few hours got a friendly reply that a) solved my problem, and b) refrained from pointing out that it was caused by my own stupidity.

Good app, great support: Worth every penny.
[Version 3.8.14]

Well, I cannot tell much about the game, since I hardly got to play it. SInce it was free I used it to check out how Steam works. The answer: It doesn't. At least not with this game.

Team Fortress took forever to load (at least five minutes between clicking the icon and actually making it onto a server - yes, I timed it), and about half the time before it finished loading completely. That was annoying, but what made me delete the game after four days of trying was the fact that the game crashed completely EVERY SINGLE TIME I tried to change a server or load a different map.

I know that it's free, but it's still not worth the time you have to spend with it.
