Page is filled with ads and click bait .
a lot of things you can find on youtube without all the popups .

The stories are ok, but they seem to be broken into like 15 different pages filled with the most annoying adds and popups.
One was 15 slides summarizing a 5 second video that I could have just watched immediately instead of flipping through 15 pages of ads.

free circuits lessons, great resource and better than many expensive textbooks.

They honestly are the reason I have been able to get through some of my harder classes.
Great style, fairly clear and much better organized than if I just went to their YouTube page.

I spent years going to my local library getting their limited number of books on cd,
until i discovered this awesome website .
All i needed to do was get a library card and i had access to tens of thousands of great audio books .
I can download them directly to my phone, and when they expire they return themselves.
if you don't live in ny, just look for a library online in your state that uses the company that makes this called "overdrive". or go to the overdrive website and click "find a library".
I have rented hundreds of books from them and i don't intend to stop any time soon ,

Turns motivation into a team sport.
Helps alot with getting work done.
Can be a bit non intuitive for new commers .

great place to find things locally, I have successfully bought and sold here. But be careful! people can be dishonest and Craigslist does not guarantee anything (how could they they don't charge). treat it as if you were responding to a paper add in the newspaper or posted in a public place .

Fast shipping, great service , quick returns .

this is a good place to upload pics fast if you want to share them, but their homepage is really random, not necessarily bad, but it can get odd.

it is free, minimalist and does not do anything annoying after installation .
The only downsides will be true of any software based tracking solution it tracks the laptop when it is online and running on the same os (meaning the thieves did not format the hard drive).

This company might be ok if they were upfront about what you can do for free.
I spent a week desperately waiting for a response to my messages to get a roommate fast (i got a job offer in a different city and need to move fast), only to receive a message, and find out that i can not read it or any message without paying .
If they told me this up front, it would be ok, but waiting to tell me this after i have wasted a week of my time and someone else's seems really dishonest.
Honestly, craigslist works much better and is free.
*Update*
I give the company credit, they responded to this review, quickly , calmly and in a professional manner. However, in my experience, most companies will provide a checklist of features at each price point upon creation of an account , so the customer is not unpleasantly surprised and forced to upgrade.
But i am really impressed with how fast they replied to this, good work.
