Now for some good news in the app dept. …
Green Smoothie in Your Phone
Since August of this year I have been working hard on a surprise project that today, has finally been completed. Apple has just approved my Green Smoothie iPhone Application. If you have an iPhone, you can have instant access to countless green smoothie recipes. What makes my program unique, is the nutrition data that accompanies every ingredient and each recipe. Along with nutritional data, I have included the nutritional highlights of what foods are beneficial for particular health condition. For example, raspberries are associated with colon cancer protective properties, parsley have been shown to inhibit tumor formation in the lungs, and lemons are useful in conditions like colds, flu’s, and recurrent ear infections.
It took me five months to compile the scientific information to create this application, and format it in an easily comprehensible manner. All of my nutritional highlights come form the best most trusted sources one of which is www.nutrtiondata.com
To make this program esthetically beautiful, and to make the ingredients easy to recognize, I purchased all of the ingredients of each smoothie and hired my good friend and brilliant photographer Robert Petetit to capture artistic images of the produce.
This applications is available for $1.99. This could be a great last minute gift for friends and relatives who have iPhones. To purchase the App go to the iPhone App Store or you can use this link.
For those of you who do not have an iPhone, I have some good news: We in the process of making this application into a website.

IPhone and Android Apps Breach Privacy – WSJ.com:———–That’s a good article! dated 12/18/10. Not too surprising but it does reveal the quagmire of confusion, lack of total transparency, & mega-greedy commercialism where nothing is sacred.Also linked from the same page:“The Journal’s Cellphone Testing Methodolgy”:Some of the reader comments:(…)Now I know why there seems to be a new agreement to consent to every few weeks before I can get to the app store on my iphone. (YES! I have wondered about that, too! It always unnerves me! /bg) I’m just another idiot that consents without reading, as 99% of the users do. I’m glad someone is raising awareness on this topic. I will be more careful of which apps I use and download as the biggest offenders get outed by articles like this one.I smell a website. Badapps.com or something similar that details the personal info transmitted by each app. Get on it, you techies!(…)(YES! Great idea! I would love to know myself! I never use games apps, & I never turn on “location.” Mostly I use Safari & Mail apps, various notes apps, & photo storage apps. Most of my homescreens are full of websites that I save. /bg)———(…)Mobile phone microphones can be activated remotely. The government can listen to everything you say, even when the cell phone is turned off. This “roving bug” feature has been used by law enforcement agencies and intelligence services to listen in on nearby conversation.(…)(I have always heard of that. I guess I should quit talking to myself so much, lol./bg)————-More good links in this comment…(…)How many times I have tell you, this is real, illegal bull*** that companies do to ptotect their so-called corporate status, when the customer is the one, who make of a company what is it, is there where no customers, how a company can function, no way, no how, simple as that, but aside of that, there is the shadow that controls the media, in any way you could imagine, a global brain wash if you would called, here is the article in detail:On top of this, we are being tracked down, like dogs with a leash, so, what about the basic principles in which this country was founded?(…)Example of what I am talking about:(…)So who want to control us all? that is the real question.Privacy is history, as I said in previous articles, there is no privacy, our personal information is being sold and distributed like inside of a Walmart Store.Global “Secret” conference to “rape your privacy rights” literally:On top of this, our Justice seems to notice what is the problem, but I bet a million bucks no-one ever has heard of this, and it’s real (please read the whole letter below link):So if we come back to the main topic of this conversation, if you like to know the truth about what this corporate companies do and how they reveal you personal info here is the links (all leaked information):Microsoft:Paypal:Myspace:Facebook: (his post was cut short right there, at the WSJ site./bg)(…)—————(…)The government maybe the sponsor of these data grabbers as a part of the big brother is watching program.(…)Indeed. Lol. People always want to run to the feds re these types of revelations, yet the one is in bed with the other. /bg———(…)A stalker is an anonymous follower and tab-keeper of another person or persons. Illegal and creepy.The defense these stalkers use seems to be: We don’t know the victim’s name so we are not doing anything wrong.IMO Flawed and creepy.(…)Stalkers. Good term. I didn’t think of that! /bg————(…)I’ve been warning people from the very beginning. I have developed these technologies for web and wireless and was amazed by the potential for abuse. I guess knowing is bad business. I also know what will happen next…(…)Yeah but you didn’t bother to share what that “next” is… /bg———–(…)Numerous papers on de-anonymizing have shown that it is quite easy to uniquely identify you using just a few scraps of “harmless” data (e.g. age, sex, zip code, income).(…)———–Ho hum! The surveillance & profiling society continues to grow by leaps & bounds!Re top photo collage:–“Big Eye of Apps” pic is from the WSJ article.–“Spy vs Spy” came to mind (as a perfect depiction of what the article describes) because my brother used to read Mad Magazine when we were kids. :)/bg
APPLE REMOVES CHRISTIAN APP CONDEMNING SOCIAL EVILS(From “Friday Church News Notes,” December 10, 2010, www.wayoflife.org email@example.com, 866-295-4143)The following is excerpted from Baptist Press, Dec. 3, 2010: “Conservatives are expressing shock and frustration after Apple pulled an iPhone/iPad ‘app’ from its online store that contained basic Christian beliefs on homosexuality and abortion. Although the move impacts only owners of iPhones and iPads, conservatives fear it is another indicator of where society is headed when it comes to critiquing core Christian values.The app — one of more than 200,000 applications, or software programs, in the app store — included the complete text of the Manhattan Declaration, a 4,700-word statement on the culture that about 150 evangelical, Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox leaders signed last year and that more than 475,000 other people have since signed. …More than 35,000 people have signed a petition at ManhattanDeclaration.org asking Apple to reinstate the app. The application was pulled after 7,700 members of the liberal website Change.org e-mailed Apple and asked the company to remove it, which Apple did in late November.Apple has since told ABC News, ‘We removed the Manhattan Declaration app from the App Store because it violates our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people.’ …In a summary paragraph, the Manhattan Declaration says: ‘[W]e will not comply with any edict that purports to compel our institutions to participate in abortions, embryo-destructive research, assisted suicide and euthanasia, or any other anti-life act, nor will we bend to any rule purporting to force us to bless immoral sexual partnerships, treat them as marriages or the equivalent, or refrain from proclaiming the truth, as we know it, about morality and immorality and marriage and the family. We will fully and ungrudgingly render to Caesar what is Caesar’s. But under no circumstances will we render to Caesar what is God’s.’”CONCLUSION FROM BRO. CLOUD: I generally like Apple products but the downside is the dictatorial control it maintains over everything. The pulling of the Christian declaration is not surprising, of course. As a corporation Apple is godless like the vast majority of corporations in this present world and is certainly not a friend of the truth. To avoid such things we would have to go out of the world and avoid most commercial activities (1 Corinthians 5:9-11). Thank God, a new world is coming in which “dwelleth righteousness.”——————-So Apple succumbs to removing the app because of a “document” included in the app that outlined moral issues that are clearly stated in the Bible.What will Apple do when the same or similar complainers demand that Bible apps themselves be removed (which contain the scriptures the above moral declarations are based on)? Hmmm?“If they hated me,” the Lord said, “they will hate you also…” & everything His Word stands for.So WE “can take it” because we have been prepared by the Lord to know things would turn out this way in this anti-God world.But why are the complainers such whimps that they cannot cope with differing opinions?The Devil truly is a coward. And he obviously doesn’t prepare very well those he has duped to be able to cope with those of us who disagree with them. Their “best shot” is to “bury the evidence.”What are they so afraid of?Reality & Truth, that’s what./bgSource:
