I've never heard of Coby Persin until today. When I saw the news report on Facebook, I wanted to come here just to the project. This is something EVERY teen and even preteens these days should be made aware of. I don't know for sure if it will actually penetrate, but if you've seen this and you don't share it, you will never forgive yourself.

I personally prefer the softbox across the board. AND, they come in MUCH smaller sizes, a 20-24" softbox without diffuser is actually lighter and easier to transport.

One of my favorite female singers. Can't wait for the CD release and VERY proud to be a supporter.

You should have stated with the basic assumption that the Nissan Leaf is NOT intended to be your long haul car. It's intended to be the city car. People continually push the limits, but they do it to commute to work and run errands.

I understand what you're saying and I turned my leased Leaf in a week ago after 3 years. I decided that with a 240 volt charger in the garage, a second car at home, zero maintenance costs in the last 3 years and an average power cost of $18 per month, I decided the best replacement was the 2015 Nissan Leaf. Yep. it works for me.

The maintenance alone is enough to sell it. You can do your own tire rotations and the inspections are free. With Nissan dealerships at about 40 mile intervals (actually 6 within 20 miles of my house), there are lots of DC quick chargers. I can safely travel the 65 miles to my dad's house with a DC charge stop on the way and feel extremely safe to get home on the single stop.

Since you didn't provide where you are, I can't guess what the infrastructure is there. For me (30 miles south of Washington, DC), I travel all the time. and have plenty of free charging options. With Nissan's addition of the No Charge To Charge program. it's even easier with the new Leaf.

Definitely ruled out. And you nailed it. No battery and NO SD slot. I use a LOT of storage and the lack of an SD card is too limiting. Looks like Samsung is making a drastic mistake in eliminating one of the differentiators from the Apple line.

Honest review. One details not mentioned (because it may not be known by the reviewer), the hardware is actually made by Samsung. Also, the technology itself is very outdated in comparison to the Gear S. Apple has a long way to go to catch up and their entry is not earth shattering.

Interesting way to describe a peaceful protest. They violated his First Amendment rights and should be thrown out of ANY veteran's organization. Shameful!! I didn't give up 20 years of my life and body parts for people to step on the Constitution.

Since when is it a crime to hold up a sign? I think we've seen MANY REPUBLICAN presidents "disrespected" far worse than this old guy did. He should have turned around and decked the little turd who grabbed him. Disgraceful!!!

I liked your review, but do have some details you might not be aware of. I'm on my second Nissan Leaf. The 2011 was leased or I would still have it, but at the end of my lease I found it better to purchase a 2015 because of the better charging and slightly better range (which really is the reason I leased to begin with).

Some minor corrections to your posting.:

1. DC Charging has recently been identified to actually be better than slow charging based on ChargedEV magazine's report of a university study.

2. While you did have ECO mode engaged (good on ya!),you were not driving with Braking Assist engaged (move the shift to the D/B position twice to engage). While this doesn't sound like much, your downhill battery recovery is greatly enhanced.

3. Always plan for about 25% of estimated range. Find charging stations along that guideline.

4. DC Quick charging does cut off at 80%, but the charger continues to charge at a slower rate, very similar to a Level 2 charger (Even tech support usually gets this wrong). You could leave your car plugged into the Quick Charger if no one is waiting, but it's just as easy to just keep plugged in without worrying.

I recently took an out of state trip between my home in Virginia and my brother's home in Maryland. It's also about 75 miles each way. The trip over was delayed due to events in Washington, DC, so the high speed driving was pretty limited heading north, but the return trip was 60-65 speed limits all the way. I left my brother's home at 93% and arrived home with 22% remaining. I did stop for a quick charge before actually showing up at his house and debated returning for a top of, but figured I'd be okay. Oh, and we did have the AC on (my wife is definitely a creature comfort kind of person).

Picked up my 2015 Leaf a week ago today. I turned in my 2011 Nissan Leaf. Yeah, I'm hooked. I have noted that with ECO AND Breaking modes, I get about 15% better range AND yes, I've developed the same climate games, just sets in naturally.

+Bruce Warner I'm really glad to hear that. EV range just keeps getting better for the price. I really wnat my next car to be an EV.

If every kid read as well as this young lady, there would be NO reason for it. 1967 was kind of the peak for US schools. Since then, we have dumbed them down rather then raising up schools that were failing. Now we are trying to reverse that and the result is nailed by this young lady.

Bottom line, VERY accurate. I have the Gear S, and the comparative reviews from the intro presentation were pretty bad for Apple. Add to that the one review I read commented that inside it's all Samsung. Another not so good indicator for Apple. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Apple. I've been in the IT field since 1968 and find them over priced and under capable. My real fear is that Samsung is starting to lean toward some of the Apple practices. the Galaxy 6 line has been introduced without a replaceable battery and no SD card slot. Since I'll have my old Note 4 to push apps to the Gear S, I can switch to another Android device, probably at a lower price as well.

I'm definitely a Samsung user, so the Gear S was a logical choice for me. It's also a great choice. This week the Apple Watch was revealed and one of the greatest comments made was in the last paragraph. Yes, the Apple hardware is Samsung. There are some issues I had with this review. Samsung has definitely made a move to more free apps. Learning the Gear S took a matter of minutes. Also, the similar display format makes it much more intuitive. I've only used it a couple of times as a stand along phone, but it works perfectly. I'm sure there is a difference between different phone companies, but my company charges 20-cents per call for call forwarding. I've suggest that since this is featured as a paired device that they should set up an exception rule for call forwarding. The solution I've found is to "forward the phone," but don't answer it. I have caller ID and if it's important enough, I can call them back.
