Nyon Estylo

Nyon EstyloWhen we think of technology, we think of wires buzzing and high speed information traveling through cables and connections that we can’t even see. It’s all fascinating, but what if we merged technology with basics that we are already familiar with and materials that we can fully trust and rely on? NYON is a company that is doing just that by creating wooden styluses that not only work, but that look good too!

The Estylo, a.k.a. The Pencil of Now, is a wooden dual tip magnetic stylus that was designed to work with the iPhone, iPad, Android, and any other touch screen device. The tip works in a variety of angles and it has been designed so that it will never scratch your screen. Aside from the super sleek design and functionality that the stylus offers, it comes in brilliant and vibrant color choices.

Most all styluses work and look the same. Chances are, you’ve come across or maybe even own a circular stylus that is heavy and made of metal or a cheap plastic material. Why settle for the same thing that everyone else has when you can own something special and unique. Stand out and get a product worth having. It’s stylish, sleek, and does its job.

Apps For A Healthier You

A Healthier YouIt seems anymore that technology is a permeant fixture in the lives of just about everyone. To some this may be an excuse to not live healthy or put health on a lesser priority, but it is actually a great way to stay healthy. Some of the most effective and popular apps on the market today deserve some recognition. If you own any iod device, basically an Apple product such as an iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad, then you already have the base for what these apps are all about! Here are the best fitness and health apps on the market.

MyFitnessPal – Now you don’t need an ios device for this because they have a website that does the same thing, but this app makes it very simple to track weight loss, manage your diet, connect with other people wanting to stay healthy and loose weight, and it has just about every feature someone looking to stay healthy on the go would want. This app is FREE!

Couch-to-5K – Talk about an effective app! This app not only sets a simple to follow plan to get you healthy and ready to run a 5K if you want to, but it has a built in music player for when you are doing the plan, three different digital trainers to choose from to guide you along, and offers the option for finding 5K’s near you and even gives you a discount for registering for a 5K. This app cost $1.99.

Sleep Cycle – Everyone knows that you can’t exercise and be healthy if you are tired and exhausted to begin with. Sleep Cycle is an app that monitors your motion while you sleep and determines when you are in your lesser sleep cycle, meaning you aren’t in as deep a sleep, and it goes by the time you set to be woken up. It gradually wakes you up by playing your choice of sound, music, or regular alarm noise. This app is important because it wakes you up on time and does it in a way that makes you feel like you have gotten a great nights sleep every time! This app is $0.99.

Pedometer – There is a paid and free version of this app, both are great! This app takes the pedometer to the next level by allowing you to listen to your music while walking, running, jogging, etc. it also records spikes in how fast you are going, as well as time, and it does all of this while setting goals for walking with you. If you plan on having your ios device with you, then this is the app to get, but it is ment for iPod Touch and iPhone, sorry but I doubt you would want to carry an iPad with you while you go jogging.

These are some of the best health and fitness apps on the market, some are free, and some cost, but none are over $3. Health is such an important thing, so I have a feeling you won’t mind putting down a dollar or two to make your tech life a little more healthy.

Steve Jobs Biography by Walter Isaacson

Author Walter Isaacson is known for publishing biographies of the long-dead geniuses, Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, tackled the task of producing the biography of Steve Jobs. The biography ‘Steve Jobs’ reaches out to current and future generations to explain the fascinating life of Steve Jobs. Using forty self-conducted interviews, along with interviews from family, friends, colleagues and even competitors.

Isaacson has written about the roller-coaster life of the creative perfectionist with a ferocious drive. Jobs cooperated with this book, asking for no control over what was written about him. He encouraged everyone to speak honestly, for a complete and accurate biography. He spoke candidly, and almost brutally honest about those that he worked with and competed against.

Critic Jane Maslin says, “Mr. Isaacson’s long view basically puts Mr. Jobs up there with Franklin and Einstein.” It’s a portrait of his legacy, and a story of how Jobs overcame skeptics and obstacles in the technology industry. Most importantly, it tells who he is as a man.
