For decades we’ve enjoyed the freedom to take our music with us wherever we go. Today we begin a new era of freedom.
The year was 1979. It was a time of big hair, big platform shoes, big bellbottom jeans and the big beats of disco music. Donna Summer, the Bee Gees and the Village People ruled the music charts. Continue reading →
The weather outside was miserable, so I headed over to the fitness club to resume my half-marathon training.
I laced up my shoes, plugged in my earbuds, fired up RunDMC and began pounding the indoor track. As I glanced at the others working out that day — running, spinning, lifting — I couldn’t help but notice how many, like me, were wearing headsets or earbuds. At least 8 of every 10 by my count.

If you’ve ever wondered if your workout routine is making you more fit – or if it is just a waste of time – there’s now an easy, accurate way to find out.
We’re working out like crazy. But are we getting in better shape?

We have apps to manage virtually every part of our everyday lives. How do we decide which are necessary and which we can survive without? The answer lies within ourselves.
Did you get in your 10,000 steps yet today? Or drink your 6 glasses of water?
There’s an app that’ll tell you. In fact, the list of apps to manage our everyday lives is virtually endless – ranging from how many steps we take to when we should get out of our chairs and stand up to which foods we should eat.
There’s no question that apps are great tools for helping us get in shape, live longer and organize our hectic daily lives. They do it in a way we all understand: Continue reading →
