This is helpful for several scenarios
 
IPHONE SPEAKER ON BY DEFAULT
I've noticed that often prefer to use my #iPhone  with the #speaker  on when receiving calls - e.g. if I'm typing away and get a call, I can more easily keep typing if the phone is already on speaker.

I had to google it, and it wasn't obvious, so I thought I'd share.

To make the speaker on by default when receiving calls, go to
Settings > General > Accessibility
Under Physical & Motor (you'll have to scroll to find it), select Incoming Calls and select Speaker.

Sometimes an odd food pairing helps enhance the benefits of both foods. Skeptical? Here's the science behind it:
Real nutrition is a complicated, individual science, and there's no magic bullet, but some foods do compliment each other in odd ways that can help you get the most nutritional benefit from both.

Scientists at CRANN, the Science Foundation Ireland-funded nanoscience institute based at Trinity College Dublin, have partnered with world-leading brewing company SABMiller on a project to increase the shelf life of bottled beer in plastic bottles. The new deal will see SABMiller invest in the project over a two year period.

Look & Feel younger by eating these free-radical fighting antioxidants.  ♥ :)

1. Blackberries - 1 cup contains the most antioxidants of all the berries tested, beating out blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, raspberries. Plus, 1 cupful provides 1/2 your daily recommended intake of vitamin C.

2. Strawberries - Bursting with fiber & Vitamin C (149% of your daily recommended intake!) a cup of sliced strawberries is a cup full of healthy benefits.

3. Coffee - Not only does coffee help keep us alert, it reduces the risk of diabetes and Parkinson's disease and also stimulates enzymes that protect against colon cancer.

4. Raspberries - Another super-healthy berry to add to your diet. One cup of raspberries is loaded with Vitamin C (54% of your daily recommended intake) and antioxidants.

5. Ground cloves - Just a teaspoon of ground cloves can do wonders for your body. Spice up your meals and boost your health at the same time.

6. Peaches are rich in betacarotene, vitamins A and C, fiber and minerals like iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus.

7. Walnuts - Just an ounce of walnuts, or 15-20 halves, is loaded with antioxidants. They're cholesterol free and low in sodium and sugar. Nuts are laden with calories, though so be mindful of your intake.

8. Artichoke - One artichoke contains approximately 1/4 of an average-sized adult's fiber needs. It's rich in Vitamin C, potassium, folic acid & magnesium and is naturally fat free and very low in calories. 

9. Cranberries - One cup of whole cranberries is full of disease-fighting and health-boosting antioxidants.

10. Pecans - One ounce, or 20 jumbo kernels of pecans is rich in antioxidants. They increase metabolic rates, enhance satiety and play a role in protecting the nervous system.

11. Blueberries - This superfood is good for your health and can help protect your skin from premature aging. Blueberries reduce the risk of urinary tract infection, and improve eye vision.

12. Broccoli contains indole-3-carbinol that reduces the risk of breast cancer and other estrogen sensitive cancers, like cancer of the ovaries & cervix. It contains other protective constituents like beta-carotene, which can help prevent heart disease.

Other AntiOxidant sources:

Vitamin A & Carotenoids: Carrots, Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Tomatoes, Cantaloupe & Apricots
Vitamin C - Citrus fruits like oranges & lime etc. Green peppers, green leafy vegetables & tomatoes

Vitamin E: Nut & Seeds, whole grains, green leafy vegetables, vegetable oil & liver oil.

Selenium: Fish & Shellfish, grains, eggs, Chicken & Garlic.

Flavonoids & Polyphenols: Soy, red wine, purple grapes, or concord grapes, pomegranate, tea.

Lignan: Barley, Flax seed, Oatmeal, Rye.

On June 5/6th, 2012 will be last Transit of Venus in this CENTURY - next in 2117. Don't miss it!

Before it happens again, the Earth will change beyond recognition

It won't happen again until December 2117. On June 5th, 2012, Venus will transit the face of the Sun in an event of both historical and observational importance. The best places to watch are in the south Pacific, but travel is not required

Check on map where will be visible → http://goo.gl/jjW54

Microsoft invests $300m in Barnes & Noble’s Nook; more e-books for Windows

A few months after Barnes & Noble announced it was looking to spin off its Nook business, Microsoft and B&N are forming a strategic partnership that combines Nook and the B&N college businesses into a new, still unnamed company (for now called Newco). Microsoft is making a $300 million investment in the new company “at a post-money valuation of $1.7 billion in exchange for an approximately 17.6% equity stake.” Barnes & Noble will own the remaining 82.4% of of the new subsidiary, “which will have an ongoing relationship with the company’s retail stores.”

It's good that BN is getting some influx of cash for their ebook and college businesses but hopefully this deal doesn't involve them shifting the OS on the Nook over to some crappy microsoft OS. I'm sure this deal will do more harm then good (like everyone who gets into bed with microsoft) but hopefully it will give them some breathing room to improve the Nook products and compete with Amazon and Apple in the reader area because all competition is good for us the consumer.
