Matt's 12 Must Have (Free) iPhone Apps*

Evernote
The ultimate note taking app. Sync notes, pictures and voice memos automatically between your computer (Mac or PC), read your notes in the browser and share them with friends. Make sure you pair this with Evernote's web clipper for your browser of choice. You can also upgrade to the premium version for some added features, but I get along just fine with the amazing free version.

Dear Apple: Please Let Sparrow For iPhone Have Push Notifications!

I absolutely love Sparrow for the Mac, being a Gmail user I find it simply amazing, and several months ago when I found out that Sparrow was bringing an iPhone app out I was pretty excited. It's not that I hate the default email client for the iPhone, I actually find it to be the best email client on a phone ever, at least until Sparrow for iPhone was released tonight. 
Sparrow for iPhone is every bit as good as Sparrow for the Mac, with one major problem...it does not support Push Notifications... 
You can read Sparrow's official explanation here, and it from what I have read in other articles it was available in beta version of the app and they said "it was fantastic" but Apple would not approve the method of push notifications that Sparrow was using. In short, Sparrow is a small startup and to use Apple's official version of push notifications it would have to store all of it's user's secure email information and it cannot handle that responsibility yet,…

How to Get a Brand New Mac on an $800 Budget

So my sister called me today and said they were going to buy a computer and her husband James was on the way to grab it right now, but "what did I think about it?" Being that I am a total Mac guy I had to convince them that a Mac was within their budget, so on their $700 dollar budget here is my recommended setup.

Apple Mac Mini is tax free from Amazon is only $568.95* as of this writing and is tax free, which depending on what state you live in will save you about twenty five dollars or more. Compare at $599 on Apple.com and you will have to pay tax there.
Of course being that a Mac Mini is designed for people that either already have or want to get their own add ons, you are going to need to get a few things starting with a monitor and the two that I like are this 24 inch Asus for $159.99* or this 24 inch Samsung on Amazon for$169.99*, both are HDMI capable and full 1080P. The Asus is an LED monitor which at least in theory is better so I would lean slightly toward gettin…

Juiced Cannabis for Erythromelalgia?

I've thought of cannabis as something that could possibly help erythromelalgia for the pain, but could using it in the raw or juiced form help even more? I don't know, I didn't even know it could be juiced. I do know that I don't rule out anything when it comes to treating erythromelalgia. 
Some highlights from the video of the effect that raw and juiced cannabis has on the body.  Helps the bodies regulatory systemHelps all 210 cells types in the body function more effectivelyIt has potent anti-inflammatory benefits It is an antioxidant  "It is not psychoactive as a raw plant" - This means it does not cross the blood brain barrier, which means it will not get you high. This may be looked at as a negative for some people, but for those that are looking for as something that heals and treats them, the fact that it won't interfere with how their brain functions is a very important aspect. In fact the one doctor claims that by heating it and using as a psycho…

Looking for Improved Gas Milage? Get a 2012 BMW 328i

Something you should know about me, I'm always looking at and researching cars, it's just something I enjoy doing, no I'm not always going to test drive them, though I do on occasion, but I'm always researching them, planning what I would get if I was in the market. 
Well, something I have looked at a lot more over the last few years while researching these cars is fuel economy, but its always been a challenge to balance my desire for power with fuel economy...BMW is looking to change that, sporting a 240HP turbo 4 cylinder engine that gets, get this, 36 miles per gallon on the highway! 
Wow, my dreams have come true, now I just have to figure out the whole cost thing, it starts at 35,795...

Possibly Something That Could Help Erythromelalgia & Chronic Disease?

This woman is a Doctor who became wheel chair bound with degenerative multiple sclerosis (MS). Using a form of paleo she actually seems to have cured herself of it! Her idea was that having a very nutrient rich diet void of the bad stuff would help, and wow did it ever. This is not just your average person, this is someone that is an MD, that did tons of research to try and save her own life, and after "modern medicine" failed her, she found diet...
While there is no guarantee that this well help Erythromelalgia, things like this give me hope that we can cure this disease with diet. I keep going back in our mind to our brief experience with juicing, while that was not a sustainable long term solution, those 10 days were some of the best Tracey has had in a very long time. We have personally seen more correlation with how she feels based on what she eats then with anything else. I do not know if we will be able to cure her with this, but it is something we have started to try…

Tim Tebow's Inspiration

In case you somehow missed it, Tim Tebow, the same guy that "they" said couldn't be a winner in highschool or in college, couldn't be drafted in the first round of the NFL and probably shouldn't even play in the NFL, let alone be a starter...started his first career playoff game on Sunday. You would think it would be hard to top what he did in the regular season, coming in and rescuing a 1-4 team and helping them to simply make the playoffs which nobody expected... well in his first ever playoff game, he beats the #1 ranked passing defense in the NFL (for non NFL fans, the biggest nock on Tebow is that he is not a great passer), has his best ever game and wins pretty dramatically...

Oh and don't even get me started on the whole John 3:16 thing...favorite Bible verse...John 3:16...pass yards against the Steelers, 316...yards per completion, 31.6... peak TV rating for the game, 31.6....amazing! 
For someone like me, who has struggled with his faith in the last…
