1-0 out of 5 stars Try Route USA by Route 66 for Mac
Hi everyone,
I have been looking for a travel program for my Mac and came up empty until I took the most obvious route and looked on the apple store webpage. They have a program called Route USA 2004 by Route 66. Looks like its a very good program that will work for most peoples needs. So there ya go, no more worries. Go to www.66.com

1-0 out of 5 stars Used to be great...
This used to be a good product, but now Delorme is not offering a Mac OS X version. The product doesn't even run in classic mode. I am extremely dissappointed that they are not going to support OS X. I think they are making a HUGE mistake since this is the only map software avaiable for Mac that I could find!

1-0 out of 5 stars Out of date
This will not work on OS 9.2 or later (OS 10.x), only on OS's before 9.2 where it is very good. According to Delorme it is not & will not be supported after OS 9.1.

1-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Disappointed
This product does not offer the level of service of its competitors. For example, it does not download current road construction & detour information, nor does it offer *any* information on crucial points of interest such as restaurants, hotels, gas stations, shopping, tourist destinations, etc. Microsoft Streets & Trips, as well as other products available for Windows (*Including* Street Atlas USA for *Windows*) does offer all this & more. Also, to search for an address you must know the zip code of the address in question. (Believe it or not! Curiously this is not the case with the Windows version.) I purchased Street Atlas USA for Mac because I hoped I would be able to run a GPS mapping software package for Mac, rather than run MS Street & Trips via Virtual PC & Windows 98 (which is what I'm doing now). However, this package is so poor that I will not be using it & would return it for refund if I could. If this is the best that is available for Macintosh that doesn't say much for the platform. The Mac may be more user-friendly than Windows, but the Windows mapping software products I have used are a lot more user-friendly & intuitive than Street Atlas USA Mac. If anyone thinks this product is the best there is, I'd recommend looking at the competition. If you're using a Mac your best bet is to use Virtual PC & Windows, & load MS Street & Trips or equivalent. I definitely do not recommend this product under any circumstances!!! I'd give this product 0 stars if possible. DeLorme should be ashamed & Mac users shouldn't put up with products like Street Atlas 6.0 Mac or publishers like DeLorme.

5-0 out of 5 stars On the road with Street Atlas USA 6.0
I'm on an extended genealogy research trip (1 year +). My portable mounts to a Jotto Desk in my motorhome and guides me down the freeway from location to location, telling me my exact speed (with the DeLorme GPS attached), direction and showing me what road I'm on. A boon to safe travel and to not getting lost.

I plan large segments of the trip on a main map and then use other maps for more local travel. This planning is greatly aided by the Street Atlas USA 6.0 program.

Once I'm in a research area, I park the motorhome and the Jotto Desk and portable computer are easily moved to my small tow vehicle. Street Atlas USA 6.0, at this point, provides VERY accurate route sellection and position information. Invaluable in fact. I've found old cemeteries using this program that the locals didn't even know were there.

The program still has some weaknesses and minor glitches, but its usefulness vastly overrides those concerns... and DeLorme is known for fixing the problems that customers report.

The one really bad thing is that DeLorme does NOT provide all of its products in Mac format. :-( ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Companion
As the lead developer of A New Kind Science Explorer I am quite pleased with this product, and I think that those interested in Stephen Wolfram's book and science will enjoy NKS Explorer too. Turning 10 years of scientific research and 1192 page book overflowing with graphics and programs into an easy to use, accessible software product was quite a daunting task, but I think that we have really succeeded with NKS Explorer. The key was building the simple, forms based interface which allowed us to offer over 450 different computer experiments from Wolfram's book covering virtually every major topic in the book. From just about any page in the main text of A New Kind of Science, you can jump to the same experiment in NKS Explorer and probably find the exact graphic you are looking at among the examples. The number of different kinds of experiments in NKS Explorer is really astounding.

NKS Explorer is perfect for anyone who is interested in really understanding Wolfram's science. Readers of A New Kind of Science will appreciate the opportunity to see the programs discussed in Wolfram's book come to life. They can experiment with the same programs they are reading about, interactively discovering the insights that lead to the creation of A New Kind of Science. But, NKS Explorer is not just about recreating what is in the book; the forms based interface allows for open ended experimentation. Even advanced researchers will find NKS Explorer a valuable tool for studying new rules and systems beyond the book. I think that NKS Explorer is ideal not only as a companion to A New Kind of Science, but also as a tool for serious research. It is exciting that we have been able to create something that can be appreciated by a whole range of users from the neophyte to the university professor. In the end, I think that anyone who is interested in Wolfram's science will find NKS Explorer to be fascinating and fun; I still surprise myself with some of the things I find.

Amazon.com Review

So you've got a blockbuster movie idea floating in your head and you want to break into show business? Final Draft won't put dialogue on the pages of your screenplay for you, but it'll do almost everything else. With plugs on the back cover from such notables as Tom Hanks and Oliver Stone, it's obvious that at least some folks in Hollywood actually use Final Draft for their final drafts.

Writing for stage and screen has its own arcane set of rules. Break them, and your masterpiece is likely to be tossed in the garbage before it ever gets considered. Courier is the only typeface that's acceptable, dialogue must be centered, "foreground" is abbreviated f.g., while "interior" is INT. Final Draft promises it will sweat these details for you while you just churn out those magic words that will make box-office millions. The program also converts text to speech, so you can assign different voices to characters and have your computer read your masterpiece out loud. A function called SmartType anticipates what a given word might be, saving writers from repetitive typing. If your script goes into production, the program has a revision mode to create A and B pages. ScriptNotes is another nifty feature that allows writers to create separate windows within a script for notes or comments--without taking up script space.

This isn't really a "how to be a screenwriter" program. The assumption here is that the user already has a grasp of screenwriting basics. This program's format is designed for big screen, stage, and television episodics and movies--it won't work for television-news scriptwriting or any other format that requires two columns with visuals on the left and sound on the right. Now get out there and write the next Cats. --Anne Erickson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Hands of Fate Have Issued a Gold Mine
To see a program work so well is very rare indeed. Looking at Final Draft made me uneasy for the price was so high. But do not, I repeat do not let the price take you away from this program. [the money] is well worth it. The interface is easy and very user friendly. I am not going to go in depth on what it has to offer, because you can just read it for your self at the website (finaldraft.com). If you are looking for easy to use format then this is the place. It is so good I am even thinking using this to type up my school research paper. Get the demo at the website, and buy at Amazon. You truly will not be let down by product this buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't live without it.
Agents, studios, instructors or just about anyone who reviews a screenplay will expect it in "standard" screenplay format. There are dozens of rules regarding font, typeface, margins, indentations, grammer, syntax etc. On top of that you need to write the screenplay iteself!

Enter Final Draft.

It takes the work out of formatting, remembering what goes where and what syntax to use and leaves you to do what you originally intended to : write screenplays.

Final Draft automatically lays out your pages correctly. It indents slug lines, scene descriptions, speech etc. perfectly. It even ensures that you can't hit Enter twice without selecting something new to put into the script (i.e. a scene heading). The package is easy to use right out of the box. Take half an hour to get used to it and you're off. However, if you've never taken a screenwriting class or read a book or two, it might get a little confusing. The online help is pretty good, but it is basic. If this is your first screenwriting attempt may I suggest the Screenwriter's Bible (Trottier) to help you understand what Final Draft is trying to do.

A feature that I find really amusing is the script readback feature. It allows you to assign computer "voices" to different characters in your script. The speech synthesizing has a LONG way to go, but it's very funny to listen to.

Final Draft organizes index cards for you (if you use them to manage your scenes) and can print them out on card stock. Other neat little features include dual dialogue, which is very easy to use, tracking of changes, script "locking" for portions of a script, character name database, spellchecker, online script registration and, of course, the accomanying video (worth viewing, for sure). If you've tried using a standard word processor, even with your own templates, you will feel as though you've died and gone to heaven.

Final Draft is an excellent, and should be essential, part of any screenwriter's suite of tools.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Screenwriting Marvel
This is a great combo. Final Draft 5.0, aside from being the leading professional screenwriting program, is extremely simple to use and very stable. With is Mac and Windows compatiblity, it can be used by anyone regardless of previous screenwriting knowledge. This softwares helf menu is very pleasing as well. If there is a term or function that you don't know the meaning of, it will explain exactley how to use the funtion in a professional way. For example, the 'INT.' means interior. If this is new knowledge for you, you just go to the help menu and instanty be explained that it is a prefix for a scene inside. The smart type is another fantastic function that cuts typing time in half. When there is dialog between two characters, the computer automatically begins to put the next characters title in the center of the page for ease and speed. All the heading and prefixs are already built in. (V.O.), (con't), and other additions are as simple as a press of the arrow keys and a return. No previous knowledge is needed to use this software. It has a clean interface that is very similar to such populat software as MS Word. It has customizibility, a good spell checker, a name database with over 90,000 names in it, thesaurus and one of my favorite features, the Speech simulator. Assign voices to your characters and listen to them speak the words you've written. The video itself is another wonderful thing. Syd Field is a down to earth man who mencourages and helps you understand the art of screenwriting. He give you the tips that make great screenwriters of people and in a conginial way that you feel comfotable with. Whether you are a professional writer or ameteur, this collection is the best choice you can make. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I don't understand the criticisms of other reviewers.
The only thing I find really peculiar about the program is that the so-called random problem generator is something that simply links you to their website so you can do more exercises. I'm not fortunate enough to have seen the other math software packages but I am STUNNED at what I've seen so far. True, at this moment I've only gone up to chapter three but I find the software amazing and addictive. I love the mostly black background because it doesn't tire out the eyes like a white background does. I like the voice in the background because I'm sometimes too lazy to read or I have a hard time concentrating. You can even click on repeat to hear the explanation again. AND you can click on show example to see how the operations are done. The bottom line to me is whether YOU will want to use it or not. I guess it's like a movie or a book. People have different tastes. So far I haven't thrown it out. Had I put it aside after looking at it, I would not even rate this.

4-0 out of 5 stars helpful but frustrating
I love the graphics,animations, video, charts and the glossary complete with the symbols and formulas is very helpful. I saw only one problem and that is that the practice problems are too long and time consuming. A person who is made of less steel might drop out before they even get to Algebra. I am learning the concepts and am able to do most of the problems correctly but this is only because I use another math software program to compliment this one. If you can get math advantage at a good price by all means buy it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Software bugs - no support - lame
I'm running Windows XP with 1GB of RAM. When I try to run the product I get an error message that says, ""This program requires at least 3MB of free virtual memory to run." I can forgive mistakes made by software companies; however, I expect good support and fixes available ASAP. This is not the case. Companies that don't buck up on support or fix their bugs don't deserver your hard-earned dollars. Buy another math product from another company.

1-0 out of 5 stars A disapointing Math Software Program.
The design of this program leaves much to be desired. There is poor presentation of the content which is confusing, sometimes hard to comprehend, and makes many assumptions difficult for the neophyte to understand. Text being read gives little time to absorb math concepts. Provides sample problems with little or no explanation.
I suggedt a complete revamping of this software to accomadat all levels of math competency.

2-0 out of 5 stars Lacking information
I am a sophmore college student who bought this software thinking it would give me a little help with home study. As soon as I started the program I couldn't find certain topics that were in my algebra book. The topics the software had were only summaries. This software should claim "along with pre-algebra, there is a brief introduction to algebra, pre-cal, calculus and trig." You would only know it was a short intro if you were or had already taken these classes. Otherwise you wouldn't know what you missing.
Don't be fooled. Know going into this you will not get much out of it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Deep Space Explorer is a CD-ROM package that takes stargazing a step further, perhaps a little in the mold of the Starship Enterprise--like Star Trek, the package allows us to venture into uncharted celestial territories without leaving home. Using excellent graphics and color images of stars and moons, the software places the user at the helm of their very own "starship," allowing them to navigate into the outer reaches of the universe.

The range of the program gives a hint of the sheer enormity of space. With this software you can travel anywhere within 700 million light years of Earth--probably enough for most of us--visiting 28,000 galaxies and 30,000 individual stars. Navigating through the deep blackness, only to find yourself in the silvery whirl of a spiral galaxy, is a beautiful and unusual virtual experience.

In addition to this extraordinary--and literally otherworldly--voyage, though, Deep Space Explorer provides important sources of information, with links connecting to Internet sites that provide more material about the locations you are visiting and multimedia tutorials from a professional astronomer on current cosmological theory and a wide range of topics in astrophysics. These give an interesting understanding of the nature of black holes, galactic collisions, and ideas about the big bang--while being perfectly accessible to the layperson. They also mean that in each of the 28,000 galaxies that you enter the most up-to-date information about this star collection is available at the click of a mouse.

This combination of disparate learning and intense virtual exploration of space is difficult to beat. Computers can do many wonderful things, and surely bringing the extent of the universe to so many more people is among them. Now it is no longer necessary to travel to observatories in the American deserts or the Chilean Andes to gain some understanding of the distant stars. --Toby Green ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Data and idea are excellent, Interface is so so.
Defenitely worth the money. A great effort. However, here is what I didn't like:
-Photos of galaxies are not that good, I've seen much better photos on line.
-Space ship mode (where you fly through the cosmos) was unusable (tooooo slow) on a 1.5GHz and ATI Radeon.
-Controls (especially zooming)and program look are archaic and somewhat illogical (akin to early 90s games).
-Could not find anyway to adjust slewing speed.
-Every now and then slewing becomes jerky or the screen turns white until destination is reached.
-Photos are not scaled (e.g. GL). Several photos of various sizes seem to be stored instead, the result is that as you approach an object it continues being the same size until a threshold is reached then it gets larger. Not a smooth transition.
-The narration of the videos is far too dramatic and annoying (who cares about the videos though).

4-0 out of 5 stars Amazing sense of scale!
I really enjoyed this program. I agree with the other reviews I read here, that it has a lot of controls to figure out and it is just a bunch of galaxies. On the other hand, no one knows much about what's inside those galaxies and I bet nebulae and such will appear in version 2.0!
The movies and tech talk are very informative, and interesting even if you know most of it. You need to have the CD in for those, but you can run the simulation program just from your hard-drive, which is cool.
The best thing about this program is the sense of scale you get in the simulation. You have to be travelling at ludicrous speed, like a billion billion times the speed of light to get anywhere in a descent amount of time. The universe is a really big place -- perhaps one of the biggest!
I recommend this program for the educational mini-movies and the thrill of piloting around 30,000 galaxies. It is well-executed, fun, mind-opening, and awe-inspiring.

3-0 out of 5 stars Galaxies only
I was really looking forward to getting my hands on this, but was a bit disappointed.
First, the good news - the 3D views of galaxies are really special, and zooming from one to the next can be real fun, as is slowing down for some lazy flybys of any that particularly strike my fancy. The animations are great, too.
My only complaint is that this is a bit limited in scope. I would kill for some good 3D explorations of nebulae ("flying" along the pillars of the Eagle nebulae or among the cometary knots of the Helix nebulae would be worth any price), but this concentrates almost entirely on galaxies. Once you get to one there isn't really anything to do except fly around it.
You don't even get to play around inside our own Milky Way other than zooming into the Sun.
If you buy this strictly for the galaxies and the fact that everything is real, you'll certainly enjoy it. Just don't expect any suprise and delight.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good entertainment and learning package
The pros are it has a lot of information about the physical universe. The 3d views and mini movies are great. The cons are it has a lot of controls so children might find it a little overwhelming. Once you get the hang of the program it is great. I am very happy with this purchase and if I had to do it again I would. So if you are patient and have a couple of hours to learn how to use the program then anyone who wants to know about the planets and universe would benefit from this program. ... Read more

EndNote 4.0 may be the cure for all that bibliographically ails you:this package is assuredly a one-stop source for researchers, students, andanyone else wishing to catalog some sort of library. Founded on the comfortableshortcuts and clicks that most Windows users are familiar with, text formattingand file functions are a breeze, and clicking does everything from sorting theindicated column to drag-and-drop copying from one library to another.

After a quick install, beginning a new library is a snap. Creating each newentry, or reference, has a nice rhythm to it. You'll maneuver through any numberof fields (EndNote provides several dozen, and you may also add customizedfields) by tabbing or clicking, and auto-completion will keep you moving alongas the software recognizes past entries. EndNote allows for many referencewindows to be open at once, coupled with a quick close-all keyboard shortcut.And no need to be manually saving after every entry: every time you change data,EndNote saves.

EndNote is well suited to handling professional bibliography work: eachreference in a library can hold a total of 64,000 characters, or about 16 pagesof text. Additionally, each library can grow to about 32,000 records, or about32 megabytes.

After entering your references, you've created a venerable library for yourself,searchable and concise. You may also import reference data, which allows you toavoid rekeying any other bibliographic work you've already done in Refer, BibIX,ProCite, or tab-delimited data from spreadsheets, databases, and word-processingapplications. Your library can also be exported to Word and WordPerfectdocuments and structured in any bibliographical format that you choose (completewith correct in-text reference citations). Options include standards like TheChicago Manual of Style and APA to lesser-known journal stylesranging from Advances in Agronomy to Yeast.

The only challenge when using EndNote is comprehending how powerful it is andexactly how much you, the bibliographer, can do with it. Additionally, using theconnection files to search remote databases may at first feel awkward for thosewho have searched these sources directly. But once a connection is established,searching ensues through the EndNote search window, which is completelycustomizable. You can even add other databases as long as they areZ39.50-compliant.

A powerful application for academic, professional, and personal use, EndNote 4.0is a complete resource for gathering and maintaining bibliographic references.--Emilie Dirks--This review was written for the full Windows version. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

EndNote 5 is a new version of the bibliographic software popular among researchers, students, and librarians. It is used to search online bibliographic databases, organize references, and create instant bibliographies. EndNote 5 introduces a new level of integration with Microsoft Word, along with a traveling reference library that follows the document for easy collaboration with colleagues.

The Cite While You Write feature lets you locate and insert citations without leaving Microsoft Word. EndNote 5's new instant formatting creates your bibliography as you type, without waiting, guessing, or taking extra steps. Cite While You Write locates references in your open EndNote library and provides you with a selection list. If you don't find what you're looking for, simply modify the search to receive a new list. EndNote retains your last 10 searches to easily recall previous selection lists. As you insert a citation in your document, EndNote formats the in-text citation and builds the bibliography instantly.

EndNote 5 automatically creates a hidden traveling library as you cite references in Microsoft Word. The traveling library contains complete reference data for all your citations. When you're ready to send this document to colleagues for editing, they'll have all the necessary information to add, delete, and reformat citations.

5-0 out of 5 stars This software is excellent
Endnote 5.0 is absolutely wonderful. It is incredibly easy and fast to use the built-in components to search online databases such as PubMed, Biosis, or Web of Science. References can be stored on your computer with their abstracts and the link to the journal site to download the article. This makes sorting papers and collecting papers for research and writing easy! I didn't believe it would be so useful until I tried it. Well worth the money if you write and cite literature often.

Thoth, Akhenaton, Champollion, and the Rosetta stone--gods,humans(ancient and modern), and artifacts that all await discovery onthe packed DVD-ROM Egypt: Voyage to the Land of the Pharaohs.

There are several options for exploring the material, and the best forgaining an overview are two narrated introductory films: History (thebias is towards ancient history, with only a few minutes covering thelast century) and Civilization. Divided into short sections, you canwatch these sequentially or pick sections at random. The Film option issimilar with four sequences of film, again split into sections. Thequality is good and the script is interesting, though even with anup-to-date PC, the film ran a little jerkily on occasions. Thumbnails ofassociated topics appear as the film runs; these can be followed tofurther images and text.

There are also aerial maps of parts of Egypt. However, even though youcan zoom in to a degree, you can't see really detailed views from theair. Also, the geographical map has relatively little detail anddoesn't show the country's borders.

Navigation could be easier: the position of the main menu bar at thebottom of the screen means that it's all too easy to pop up the WindowsStart menu. If you're just following your nose through the contents,using the index, thumbnails, and hypertext links, performance can feelslow. The Travel Log is a great idea, however; it constructs anitinerary from places you choose as you browse.

All manner of fascinating detail unfolds as you peruse thiscomprehensive Egyptian compendium. --Mark Whitehorn ... Read more

Are you ready for a dose of Old World spirituality on your digital desktop? Jesus: Gospel & Paintings brings the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to a CD-ROM format that incorporates text, narration, works of art, and music. Produced by Montparnasse Multimedia of Paris, this European CD-ROM features reproductions of Renaissance art masterworks, with musical accompaniment that ranges from Bach to Verdi.

The CD-ROM divides the stories of the Gospel into 12 scenes, which are easily navigated from the home page. Each scene contains four features: an animation, a commentary that paraphrases the story, an explanation of its historical context, and the biblical text of the scene. You can move quickly to related scenes or further background information. One especially interesting feature is the Synopsis, which allows you to see all four Gospels at once for any given scene.

Along with the 12 scenes, there is a Discovery button that allows you to click on the sayings of Christ or on symbols, such as a loaf of bread. This leads you to the relevant passages in the Gospels. A similar feature is called Actors, which allows you to search for a relationship between two separate terms, such as "John the Baptist" and "Galilee." The use of these features is not immediately obvious onscreen, but it is clearly explained on the disc jacket.

This scene-by-scene exploration of the Gospels will not interest everyone, and there are a handful of spelling errors that detract from its overall appearance. The European interpretation may appeal most to Catholics and those interested in the cultural history of Western Christianity. It might make a perfect Confirmation gift. --Matthew Kohut ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A great gift for Christian art lovers
The editorial reviews have given us a good idea of this CD-Rom. So I'll just add a brief review. You can always expect a high standard of production from Montparnasse Multimedia though the design and navigation of this one is not as smooth, informative and interesting as the more recent "Musee d'Orsay" or "The Hermitage Museum". The analysis of the paintings and commentaries are too brief and not too enlightening.

The basic "12 scenes" are: The Annunciation, Birth of Jesus, Baptism of Jesus, Disciples are called, Wedding at Cana, Sermon on the Mount, Resurrection of Lazarus, Transfiguration, Entrance to Jerusalem, Jesus before Pilate, Death of Jesus and Road to Emmaus. For Christian art lovers, this CD will be a great tool for enjoyment and contemplation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very well done
This CD-ROM is easy to install,simple to operate,and lovely to look at and listen to. The producers{MONTPARNASSE MULTIMEDIA} have doen a very commendable job with this. Each of 12 scenes gives biblical narration,paintings,commentary,related scens{which all together are close to 100}textual comparisons,analysis, and discovery,which enables you to explaore the various parts or symbols of each scene{for Lazaraus,for examole,Martha and Mary can be reserached,with reaLTED scenes] For a CDROM neophyte{as I am},this is an excellent introduction. Not a bad way to intrduce children to Jesus in art and word, either. Very nicely done ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The one time in life that navel gazing is allowed, even indulged, is during pregnancy. After all, that bulging navel you're staring at is connected to the bellybutton of a bona fide miracle. Nine Months to Birth is a useful cybersupplement for that semiobsessed mom-to-be who loves to track fetal growth, cell by cell.

Don't expect a "you are here" type of pregnancy guide with this program. Nine Months to Birth doesn't address the mother's changes; instead, it gives full attention to tracking baby from the ovum-meets-sperm stage to birth. If you want to see how your fetus's dendrites are developing, this is the program for you.

With synthesized music--accented with digitized baby coos--in the background, this program allows you to visit areas devoted to various body parts (brain, genitalia, limbs, eyes) or follow certain pregnancy time lines. (It compulsively details the first, second, and third month, then rushes through the second trimester and third trimester. Sound familiar, moms?) Each of these time spans has a number of sites within it containing written, audio, and occasionally video information. The 25 video clips are this program's strongest point. There's something endlessly fascinating about watching that one sperm penetrate an ovum, or tiny, perfect hands waving in front of a face that belongs on an alien.

Nine Months to Birth uses fairly technical language. You'll hear things like "oocyte" and "vitelline sac" instead of "Congratulations! Your baby has tiny toes now!" Our only significant problem with the program was that it wasn't quite enough. A woman in her first trimester could easily devour this program in a couple of nights--one night if she has a good medical dictionary. --Anne Erickson ... Read more

Survivors succeeds in doing what few history books have managed toachieve: putting names, faces, and personalities with those lives destroyed bythe atrocities of World War II. Through video testimonies of four JewishHolocaust survivors--Bert, Paula, Silvia, and Sol, each from differentcountriesand age groups--we hear about what life was like before Hitler's reign ofterror, thehorror of Nazi rule, and the difficulty of picking up the pieces after thewar'send.

The two CD-ROM program is constructed so that users can access information inavariety of ways: go directly to the survivors' stories, broken into chaptersbyyear (from 1939 to 1945); examine an interactive map of Europe to learn howindividual countries were involved in and affected by the war during eachyear;scroll through a timeline of key events in the evolution of the war and itsaftermath; peruse an index containing definitions and/or descriptions ofsignificant people, places, and events; or connect to a related Web site thatexplores issues of individual and nationality identity to examine just how theHolocaust could have happened.

Sprinkled throughout the CD-ROMs are black-and-white photos illustratingimportant people, events, and ideas, plus important and sometimes little-knownfacts about all aspects of the Holocaust. For example, we learn that theGermansmade an average of $745 from each prisoner at Auschwitz through theirconfiscated belongings and labor, and that the SS formed an orchestra ofAuschwitz prisoners to serenade their fellow Jews en route to the gaschambers.These seemingly small details tell a thousand stories, opening up the years ofWorld War II to reveal a time of unspeakable inhumanity and injustice.

Produced by Steven Spielberg and the Shoah Visual History Foundation, andnarrated by Winona Ryder and Leonardo DiCaprio, Survivors has a mostimpressivepedigree. Fortunately, the depth and presentation of the material it containslives up to the high standards implied by those affiliated with it: theemotional impact of seeing and hearing Holocaust survivors describe what itwaslike to see their families die around them--how they were able to resume"normal" life after experiencing such atrocities--leaves an indelibleimpressionon those who experience it. Technically, the interface is virtually seamless,asis switching between the two CD-ROMs that comprise the program. And navigationof the information is quite intuitive, making the program ideal for younger(i.e., middle-school-age) students or those without much computerexperience.

To describe this as an important program would be an incredibleunderstatement;this should be required viewing for all students of history--for allpeople--iffor no other reason than to prevent such a dark moment in modern life frombeingforgotten. Only by remembering, through such programs as Survivors, do wehonorthose whose lives were lost. --Leah Ball ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not as complete as described just by reading review
I haven't bought this software, and I don't think I will. In order to have a complete and historical view of the Holocaust you would have to include the other "inmates" besides Jews. These would include: Political antogonists, Homosexuals and even more little known would be Jehovah's Witnesses. These are all included in the Holocaust Museum in DC....let's see a more complete product in software used in education of history. ... Read more
