I think I’m getting old. The first thing that tipped me off was that I was discovering a growing disdain for any music that I didn’t listen to in high school. Next came my desire for an increase in the analogue-watches, pens, pencils, and books. All these things could easily be replaced with digital versions, but now, I have an appreciation of holding something truly exquisite, truly exceptional in my hands. Fast forward a year or two and I’m holding the most premium Book I’ve ever held in my life- Crossway’s ESV Preaching Bible. [Read more…] about Crossway’s ESV Preaching Bible [Saturday Morning Review]
Several years ago, I ditched Evernote. I was a loyal user for the all the reasons everyone loves Evernote: organization, the ability to handle any data type you throw at it, and having it available on any and every device I used. Then, they restructured. Free features became locked behind a paywall, and I could only use the free version on two devices, this wouldn’t work as I was constantly bouncing between my phone, tablet, and desktop. This began my search for a replacement that could do everything I needed it to. Finally, last year, Notion launched, and I haven’t looked back. This calls for a Notion review.

Well, November 8th 2016 has come and gone, and we are left with a nation divided. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but Facebook is toxic right now. I was thinking about social media conduct post-election. Lots of misinformation, harsh tones, and unfriending going on over there. I myself fell victim to Facebook’s black hole of political partisanship with a post of my own. Deeply regretting that mistake.
On the podcast Cross Politic, the hosts had a special guest Steve Deace, a nationally-syndicated radio host answering the question “Which candidate is worse for the church?” Deace made the argument that a Trump presidency would undermine the integrity of the American church. I think this has some real merit, and we need to fight hard to make that prediction never happen.
I fell in love with Skyforce 2014.
iDreams made a top down shooter that I actually enjoyed. With beautiful graphics, engaging gameplay that didn’t feel prolonged with in app purchases, and quirky characters, I felt right at home in a genre that always ends up alienating me.
Since the invention of the modern cell phone, there has been the cell phone case. An often oversized, clunky, and unsightly piece of equipment, most of us had no choice but to don these horrors on our beautiful, expensive smartphones as the only means of protection the market offered us. Then came the phone skin.
Phone skins are adhesive on one side, and gorgeous on the other. Most offer no-to-minimal protection while some offer more case-like protection. It’s no secret that Toast has been making some of the most premium skins around. Their wooden skins offer a functionality and a beauty that is hard to find, even among the other top manufacturers in the industry.
Recently they’ve introduced leather skins to their line, and me, not wanting to be left out, was eager to try it out. So here’s our review of the leather Toast Cover for my Nexus 6P.
