The world is full of cool stuff – really and truly. As I find said stuff, I plan on sharing with you, gentle readers, because that’s just the kind of incredibly awesome guy I am. Read on and hopefully something here will be of value to you.
Evernote is a cross-platform program used for taking all kinds of notes. Sounds simple, right? Here is where it gets good: you can take the notes on:
- the Evernote web site;
- on a Windows or Mac version you download to your computer; or
- on your iPhone, Blackberry or Android phone.
Then, your notes are synchronized across all of these platforms so you can access them wherever you are.
I have the Android version (and so I am guessing the iPhone version is about the same) and since I always have my Droid with me, I can pop in notes any time a moment of inspiration strikes. These include text notes, voice notes or even taking pictures to create new notes. The notes can then be tagged, places into a variety of notebooks and so on. You can even upload handwritten documents or PDFs to keep everything you have all in one handy spot.
And guess what? It’s free. There is a premium version that gives you more storage and uploads, but a lot of people can make a ton of use of the free version (like I am doing, although I am giving a lot of thought to going premium).
I’ve been reading Lifehacker for a little while now and it’s one of the better sites that focuses on a variety of “lifehacks” such as better ways to organize yourself, great computer/tech tips and basically anything else that will help make your life run a little more smoothly. It does have a bit of a techie and computer leaning to it, but not to the point of it being so nerdy that you feel like you need “Linux rulez!” tattooed on your backside.
I recommend this book by Jonny Bowden to everyone I know. It’s a very easy read, well-organized by food type and with a clear explanation for why each of the 150 foods were picked for the list. What refreshing about this book is that it’s not something with the typical agenda you find with some nutritionists (i.e. “All red meat is bad! Just eat whole grains!”). Also, it’s useful regardless of your eating style (vegetarian, vegan, high protein, etc.).

Well, almost everything about this photo… just not the eventual tongue-lashing my girlfriend will dish out after seeing this. Love ya honey!
