Basis now links its fitness data with Google Fit

The +Basis Peak app is able to share your calories, heart rate, sleep, steps and walk, run, and bike activities with Google Fit. Google Fit is able to share your weight with the Peak app.

By allowing users to export their fitness data to Google Fit (and in turn, other third-party services compatible with it), Basis is turning its closed system into a more open platform

Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mybasis.android.basis.peak

Delight your Employees, to delight your customers

I've always believed in Happy Employees make happy Customers. The better experience your employee will have, more and better your customers will be delivered. 

+b.good went from 15 to 500 employees, spread across 25 US locations, four in Canada and Switzerland. A nice example reinforcing, that your employees(and customers) are your best brand ambassadors, making them feel valued should be one of important task of managers and founders of any company.

Track everything from Cardio to strength training

Now comes with Fit Challenge, a simple trainer-style workout plan that starts you with simple goals and gradually increases the difficulty over the course of 30 days.

I've linked with myfitnesspal for 3 days and it has yet to show the correct data. It shows almost twice the amount of calories eaten than what I entered in MFP. Anyone else have this problem?

Google wants not only to reinvent the car but to replace the whole idea of driving

The next stage of Auto Industry will be a paradigm shift as an ultimate driverless machine rather than a marginal gain.

Automakers are taking an incremental approach, where they let the car drive itself in the situations it can handle and turn control back over to the human driver when the car encounters something it can't handle. Google says that won't work, and has data to prove it. The problem is that the carmakers' approach requires that the human "driver" remain ready and alert at all times, doing all of the mental work of driving so that if called upon to take over they know what's 
going on and what needs to be done. Given how many people don't pay adequate attention to their driving even when they are in sole control of the vehicle, this is clearly insane.

Google tested it by giving 100 employees semi-automated cars and then recording the results. Even though the employees knew the technology was a prototype, as soon as they saw it working well they immediately put far too much confidence in it, proceeding to ignore the road for large amounts of time. These employees were skilled engineers with a deep understanding of automation and much better able to judge what the car can or cannot do than the general population.and their judgment terrified the skilled engineers who built the vehicles. That is why it is extremely tough to get from incremental improvement to full self-driving.

So, +Google Self-Driving Car Project believes in an all or nothing approach: either the car must be able to handle the job entirely on its 
own or it's not ready for real-world deployment. At a minimum, if the car encounters a situation it can't handle it must be able to give the human driver plenty of notice before he or she has to take over. Expecting the driver to be ready to take over at any instant simply will not work.

Of course, what's even better is if we simply remove human driving from the equation entirely. Get the car to the point where it can really handle anything that can come up, and remove the human controls. That is what Google is working towards.

Google is attempting autonomy in city driving, a challenge, at a different order of magnitude from what +BMW and most of the rest are aiming for. In some ways this is primarily a mapping challenge. There is a kind of ambitious genius in what Google is aiming for – and of course the implications, positive and negative, are debatable – but the spirit of it seems to go against the grain of what people are ready for.

Driverless cars will revolutionise motoring, claim the manufacturers. But is the greatest danger that they will be too safe?

Google Fit can break barriers between applications!+Giampaolo Frello

#googlefit   #fitnessapps   #lifesum   #runtastic  
 
The right way to use Google Fit (IMO).

I finally found an application that really uses Google Fit. 
As you can see I run a session with +Runtastic  that unfortunately doesn't sync directly with +Lifesum. However it syncs with GoogleFit. 
However also Lifesum syncs with GoogleFit however not only as a container to drop data in but even to collect. Hence Lifesum detects there is a physical activity in it and import it! Excellent.

Now I'm eagerly waiting an update by +Runtastic for its excellent Runtastic Me (and Orbit) to support GoogleFit so I can import to Lifesum my daily steps and calories burned. And of course also an Android version of Runtastic Libra to sync my weight.

The way I see GoogleFit can break barriers between applications!

The questions we ask reveal who we are

Google’s Year in Search is better than ever. The findings are the the result of Year In Search, news about the news that people cared about. Google’s been doing it for 15 years. It created a remarkably comprehensive package, one that used trillions of queries as its data pool. The results are presented as raw search numbers, downloadable datasets, interactive elements, and embeddable components.

The New +Google+ is fast, super light and highly responsive

After using it for last week, I find, It's the same but not the same. Now it is all about the stuff you're into and the people who get you.

The focus is on the redesign, the bold colors, and the improved access to Collections and Communities(these are the places on +Google+ where people around the world are spending their time discovering and sharing things they love), but there's a better story hiding there for everyone. As much as I've loved Google+, it was stupid slow to load, it used to leave Chrome often in a laggy state. The last thing minimalism lovers like me want is bloat, and I knew +Google could change this. So, they did, and it is freaking awesome to see, how much they've done in the background to get to this speed. So, this change is welcome. Developers have even published a case study on the work that went behind this redesign.

Why are they changing so much?

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Diyawali and a prosperous New Year ahead

Let’s light-up your home this Diwali!

Diwali reminds us of the warmth of togetherness and the light that everyone we love can bring into our lives. The soul of a flickering diya in the winter breeze, the elation of fireworks lighting up a dark sky or the warmth of the little decorations around the house, are all moments to savour for a lifetime.

Let this Diwali bring you peace, prosperity and happiness. And let the diyas bring warmth, love and light to your lives...
