Now There’s A Fitness Tracker For Your Car

Will Cars of the Future be Designed for Women Only? – Forbes

152030006_Woman in Car Looking Back Unlike so many other tracker devices, this one doesn’t need to be constantly recharged. “Our device is powered by the car, so there is no battery,” John Gattuso, the founder of FIXD , told Mashable. “It will last as long as your car battery will last.” Image: FIXD In addition to tracking the status of your oil and air filter, the device also delivers updates on the condition of your airbag and tells you when your car needs more coolant. The FIXD app also tells you how long, in miles, you have until a particular problem might become critical, as well as the possible consequences if you ignore the app’s warning. Another helpful aspect of the app is a feature that estimates the costs to take care of various problems the sensor discovers. “For the repair estimate we are going to initially talk to mechanics about the time required for certain fixes and part costs,” Gattuso said, “but as our user base grows we would like to crowdsource that information from the actual experience of users.” However, attaching such a device to an expensive car raises security concerns.

Cyclists Peddle to Battle Alzheimer’s – Laguna Beach Independent Newspaper, The “Indy” – Laguna Beach News

Isles, 44, who generally bikes 20 to 30 miles a week, sometimes making the 10-mile jaunt to his job in San Juan Capistrano, stepped up training to 150 miles a week. Rode 55 miles today and it was a killer, wrote Isles, describing a ride with a headwind and a 9,000 foot elevation gain at their page: http://act.alz.org/goto/maxandryan. We have a lot more training to do before we can ride 100 miles day after day! Isles grandmother suffered from dementia, and now his father has been diagnosed with it. OMalleys grandfather died of Alzheimers. Being witness to a loved ones slow decline is heartbreaking and extremely taxing on the family and close friends helping to care for the sufferer. I cant begin to imagine how frustrating and depressing it must be to witness your own decline, Isles and OMalley wrote on their page, which seeks the publics support for Alzheimers research. OMalley, 33, like Isles is a native of Britain.
