What Apple Gear Has Not Been Updated Lately?

image

Apple may have just updated a bunch of products and introduced some completely new ones, like the Apple Watch, but there are quite a few products on their price list that are overdue for a refresh. The iPod line hasn't been touched in almost two years. Considering they list for close to the price of an iPad mini, Apple may feel that customers can get a bigger device for the same price, or buy an iPhone or use a hand-me-down iPhone, without a cellular contract, as a de facto iPod touch. The Apple Watch could take the place of the iPod nano, but at a much higher price.

Counting Steps is Lame. Count Jumps with VERT!

image

My daughter is participating in the American Heart Association Jumprope for Heart program. To prepare, I've had her try the VERT Jump Tracking Device ($124.99). While it's meant for professional and serious athletes, it gave her the feedback and encouragement needed to keep working. The VERT is a belt-clip wearable that's made in the U.S. and if you don't have an outfit that accommodates a belt-clip, they include an elastic belt as an option.



Valedo Makes Fitness Fun

image

The fitness tracker movement reminds me of that saying about the weather. Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it. Pedometers and trackers are helpful, but they are observers. I discovered a cool gadget at CES that actually improves your health. The Valedo is a two-piece wearable that sticks to your chest and lower back using the 100 included disposable stickers. The two lightweight sensors work together to determine your posture and position, while you "play" a 3D interactive game.



Tip of the Day: How to Control What Information Each App Can Access on Your iPhone or iPad

image

Privacy is a huge topic these days. But despite this, how many of us download apps and accept the terms without even thinking about it, thus giving apps access to our contacts, location, social media accounts, and more?

If this describes you, no worries. I am going to tell you how you can check your privacy settings on your iDevice and revoke the access you absentmindedly gave to these apps.
