Amazon.com Review

The myriad joys of journal writing are given an electronic shakeup for young users in My First Amazing Diary. This electronic diary uses pictures and sound files to ease new readers into the experience of writing--about themselves, their school experiences, their pets, or anything that comes to mind. Along the way, children can design goofy pictures of themselves, friends, and family members and personalize the diary with pictures and text that the computer can then read back to them.

Designed for new readers in the 5- to 9-year-old range, My First Amazing Diary is a straightforward program. Naturally, it invites users to write whatever comes to mind in the diary pages, just as they would in a paper-and-ink version. However, the multimedia design of the program encourages more taciturn diarists, too, drawing them out with simple questions about themselves, beloved pets, and preferred foods. Rather than facing a blank page or even feeling obliged to write reams about the topics provided, children are encouraged to pick their responses from a small but humorous assortment of pictures. The computer can then read the selections back to them, improving their vocabulary and reading skills. This low-key approach, with its emphasis on creating a writer-friendly experience, accustoms users to recording information about themselves without pressuring them to take the whole process too seriously.

While My First Amazing Diary offers new writers a safe and amusing place to record their first thoughts and memories, children will likely outgrow the program quickly as they become more dedicated writers. The database and activities are neither terribly extensive nor particularly varied. The small size of the diary pages, while obviously nonthreatening, will frustrate more prolific writers. The program interface is attractive but sometimes balky, and it has few customization options. After a taste of diary writing, most users will probably want to graduate--to a more advanced and flexible electronic diary, to a simple word processor, or perhaps even to an old-fashioned journal. Clearly a great introduction to the concept of journal writing, My First Amazing Diary will definitely require later follow-up. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Keep kids busy through summer vocation
This diary software is very attractive to kids. It starts at the beginning level of writing and has many ways to draw kids' attention. Kids can start writing from their familiar persons and stuffs. Because it is a diary, it really works out on a daily basis. My seven-year son love it. Now he starts writing sentence and some stories on daily basis. We highly recommended this software.

2-0 out of 5 stars So so
I bought the MY FIRST AMAZING DIARY for my son a week ago. He is a 7 year-old. He liked it at the beginning as other software he owned. He mastered it very quickly and easily. It is OK for a regular diary, but it isn't as AMAZING as what we had expected. We experienced technical difficulty while we installed it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Data Becker's Your Handwriting 2 lets you turn your handwriting into a personal font. Instead of selecting Arial or Times New Roman from the drop-down menu, you can introduce a more personal touch to your letters with your very own font.

Before you rush out and get this program, though, you need to make sure that your computer is up to the task. The program requires at least a Pentium 133 and 32 MB RAM. In addition, you will require at least an SVGA graphic card with a minimum of 64,000 colors and a resolution of 800 x 600. You'll also need a scanner.

If your computer meets the specifications, you can get started by filling out forms in your own handwriting so they can be scanned. The editor tool lets you change the character size or modify a character's shape; for example, you can adjust the character's width. Keep in mind that if you use different types of pens at the scanning stage you'll have a greater variety of styles to work with later.

The advantages to this program are that you can, for example, sign letters by using your computer (although the usefulness of this isn't clear unless you will be sending the document electronically). More practical uses are thank you letters, invitations, address labels, and greeting cards.

Your Handwriting 2 allows you to successfully computer-generate your own handwriting in an instant, and will bring a warmer, more personal feel to your text. --Justin Hunt ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars C_Dilla spyware/copyright protection ? NOOO THANK YOU !
If I had known in advance that this program contains CDilla spyware / malware, I would not have bought it. I ordered the product already... but I guarantee it will make a quick trip to the trash-bin UNOPENED.

Many thanks to the reviewer who recently pointed out, this program contains CDilla.

For those of you who don't know what CDilla is:
It's spyware, which means it reports across the internet to let the mfr. know if you're making extra copies. It's also malware, because it interferes with your CD copying... not just preventing certain copyrighted CDs from being copied (OK, OK) but also just plain preventing your CD burner from copying random CDs properly...whether there's a legitimate reason for preventing that copy or not.

CDilla sets itself up on an undeclared, self-created partition on your hard disk. Yes, that means it goes in and changes your partition table !!! For some users, that's going to be a real problems, because monkeying with the partition table is NOT a good idea...particularly if you have several partitions, dedicated to several flavors of operating system (Windows and Linux, for example... with a LiLo-type partition to provide you with a boot-time menu so you can choose which operating system to boot).
Here's a quote from extremetech.com's site, one of many articles about C-Dilla, particularly C-Dilla on Intuit's TurboTax software. (Intuit-TurboTax's version of C-Dilla wasn't different from any other version of C-Dilla, just got alot of attention because TurboTax *was* very popular software until C-Dilla became a part of it.)
From the article:
"Likely the biggest problem users have expressed, is the level at which the TurboTax licensing agreement is managed and protected with the SafeCast/C-Dilla technology. People believe C-Dilla infiltrates their system in a very insidious manner, and uses memory and resources even when TurboTax is not loaded. And some believe it has caused them serious compatibility problems with non-related CD writing operations. (PC Magazine and ExtremeTech will be conducting some tests next week to see if we can duplicate some of these problems). [....] or your customers still looking to exit TurboTax for good, the uninstaller at this link now fully removes components of SafeCast/C-Dilla that were previously mostly impossible to remove."

You can use the search engine at extremetech.com to find this article and related C-Dilla articles, and the very interesting discussions about C-Dilla, what it does, why folks dislike it intensely, etc. etc.

In short, C-Dilla is an extremely strong reason for any PC user to avoid this product. Buy something else instead. If you're planning on using this product at work, forget it... your Info Technology manager will have a cow if he/she knows that you're installing destructive trojan/spyware (C-Dilla) on the company PCs. If you've already installed this software on a PC at work, let your IT manager know IMMEDIATELY, so he/she can take steps to remove it. (Indications are, though, that it's extremely difficult to remove, and many uninstall programs do NOT remove C-Dilla properly.)

3-0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised, but...
Data Becker has created a fine product that actually does what it says it does. Based on samples on ones handwriting, it creates a TrueType font suitable for use in any documents created on a Windows or other TT-compatible computer. I have downgraded the product, however, because it's copy-protected. Not just copy-protected, but using C-Dilla, one of the more obnoxious copy-protection schemes in existence. Of course, there is no mention of that until the install routine actually installs C-Dilla on the PC, after which it's a major nightmare removing the "curse" should one desire to later. I don't have a problem with software publishers protecting their property, but this is major overkill for a $20 program. Had I known ahead of time that C-Dilla was used, I'd never have bought it, despite its excellent performance.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for someone wanting to create own style font
I purchased the item as art is a basic hobby of mine and I wanted to design my own unique, readable font/typestyle. I have actually not used this software yet, but I did set it up on my computer. Just from reading the instructions, the software seems quite capable of handling what I want to do and that is to convert my own calligraphy styles into a computerized writing. I can actually spend the time to create the perfect letters and then have them computerized...It will probably take me a few weeks for me to do this (not the software) as I am working on the type of strokes I want and the depth/thickness and fine lines of the letters, and I am a basic calligrapher but I have vision of what the letters should look like...

The instructions say that one can just create a few letters and the rest will done by the software, but the more letters one adds, the better the simulation. It allows one to edit and manipulate the letters to a certain extent. One can create several different types. I would say this software has a variety of letter design applications. This is quite exciting. I am not familiar with most computer design software as my art hobby has not taken itself fully to a computer (yet, anyway), but I can say that this is really nice software because one can add one's personal touch and one can also use it for email.

I will add to this review after I am finished with my letter designs and after I have fully used the software.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Easy and FUN!
The software is very easy to use. It does work best if you use a fountain pen. Ballpoint pens are not recommened. Felt tip pens can give you letters that are too large, or blurry, which will require a lot of etrxa time to edit after they are scanned. I've created a few different fonts very quickly. It does take a while to get it just right, but, it is very easy to fix the letters and characters to get them just the way you want them.

One other thing. The box says that you need a flat-bed scanner. This may not be true for all circumstances. I have a sheet-fed scanner cartrige, (IS-32), for my Cannon s400 printer. The proof sheet scanned into the program, using the cartridge, just fine. I used the OCR setting in the scanner driver. Sending an e-mail attachment with the text in the personalized font was very easy. The whole thing works like a charm.

I ran the program on a computer with a 1.2 G Celeron processor, running WIN XP with 256 RAM.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Software Ever
It is really great. It took about half-an-hour. I still need to tweak the letters a bit, but it is far better than I expected. If every one knew about this software, I think it would be very popular. It would also blow those companies that charge 200 bucks to turn your handwriting out of the water. One thing I would like to recommend, use a Calligraphy pen. I am not sure how much they are, but the result is better. Use only the tip, not the wide part. I am sure you can get a Calligraphy pen at Wal-Mart or a local art store. I am going to start a crusade to tell everyone about this software. ... Read more
