Mobile phone cameras are the most convenient to use. So when it came time for me to buy a good camera, I ended up buying a 3rd phone - Sony Experia Z5 - because of its 23 MP and built-in macro.

That said, holding a phone to take photos is a bit awkward. I miss the feel and control of an SLR in my hands. But maybe this PICTAR camera grip is my solution, as I also have an iPhone 6+.

The app is called eAscot – after the name of [British runner Simon] Wheatcroft's guide dog – and uses coordinates to plot a route. Wheatcroft recently ran the Boston Marathon for which IBM programmed the route. When Simon veered too far left or right from the straight path, the smartphone app would making a beeping noise in his headphones, and alert him to get back on track.

I couldn't run 155 miles let alone do it blind.
Simon Wheatcroft is completely blind. But that's not going to stop him running a 250 kilometer (155.3 mile) race in the Namibian desert.

Fitbit proved victorious in a spat that has resulted in some of Jawbone’s patents being invalidated, reducing the odds of Fitbit being hit with an import ban.

In May 2015, Jawbone slapped Fitbit with a lawsuit over what it claimed was the latter company’s systematic ‘plundering’ of confidential company data by hiring now-former Jawbone employees. Such was the start of a long-running legal battle between Jawbone…
