COMMENT:  The Hue brand offers 16M colors, but this bulb has just one. What gives? I like the price and simplicity but don't think it deserves the name Hue, do you?

And this bulb breaks previous Philips claims of healthy lighting that promotes good sleep. 

Simple installation for one room is nice but limited. What about the ability to control lights in different rooms independently? Not with that remote. 

The Philips website (http://www2.meethue.com/en-us/the-range/hue-wireless-dimming-kit/) shows an evolving and expanding product line worth watching for its promise, but most of the devices are only available in 240V versions, not suitable for American homes.

I’d like to share a few of the fantastic benefits that I've experienced with meditation in the hopes that maybe you could experience them too.

Exercise, diet—even attitude—can be as important as genetics when it comes to growing old gracefully. "Old age," as Bette Davis once said, "is no place for sissies." But that doesn’t mean you need to chicken out. Sure, growing older affects nearly every part of your body—including your hair, skin, heart, muscles, and more—but aging well may be as simple as adopting these (mostly) easy everyday habits.

COMMENT:  To me this video had mixed messages that sometimes spoke of designing for inclusion (everyone) and other times spoke of accessibility (for special needs). While the message and examples are important, the video missed an opportunity to stress UNIVERSAL Design. 

I would have liked the video to stress Accessibility & Inclusion as part of Universal Design principles, appealing to the profit motives of reaching a wider audience (everyone regardless or size, age or ability) to advance accessibility.

When researchers scanned the brain of the legendary masters track athlete Olga Kotelko, they found that her brain was different from those of other people her age. But was it exercise that changed her brain?

COMMENT:  An example of this is the many wearables that claim to track sleep patterns, simply by using accelerometers to monitor motion. Better would be a mix of sensors for motion, temperature, heart rate variability, blood oxygen levels, and EKG & EEG electrical signaling in the heart & brain. We'll eventually get there,and include coaching systems that convert data points into actionable insight, but most of today's digital devices just tell us what we already know -- we're not sleeping or exercising enough.

Introduction

I'm an IBM trained technologist and market strategist, now a futurist, consultant, consumer advocate and founder of Modern Health Talk, an online community about low- and high-tech solutions for safe & healthy independent living at home.

PERSONAL: Proud husband of the world's greatest mom, father of the world's greatest high school band director, and grandfather of the world's prettiest and smartest 2-year old. ADVOCACY: With no funding, the non-profit consumer advocacy that I cofounded successfully opposed powerful lobbyists for the $35 billion Texas homebuilding industry to enact new consumer protections and abolish an abusive state agency. PROFESSIONAL: Introduced IBM to the Connected Home market and influenced its consumer & wireless strategies, and held leadership positions in wireless and home gateway standards development.

"Arrrr" -- No, not the pirate saying. I knocked off the "R" key on my friend's Dell notebook, volunteered to get it fixed, and was worried sick. I took in the Anderson Ln store in Austin and showed and saw Lauren at the Repair counter. "Arrrr" I said, showing her the key cap and the missing place on the keyboard. Three minutes later she came back with the fixed PC. Rob did it and fast, and they charged me nothing. Thanks, Rob & Lauren (i.e. FishFace because of her lip stud). You saved my bacon.
