Interesting to see. Using the UP, FitBit, and Basis I still believe FitBit has gotten it right thus far in terms of apps, data available on the web, and integrating in weight, activity, and food. However, this purhcase and the open API from UP should hopefully be good for the industry as a whole. My biggest complaint with the UP is the lack of a web based interface and export to see the granular...

It’s an interesting but smart play for Amazon.com to fund sellers working capital. The more hooks Amazon can keep in the sellers the more sticky they wil be and the more products consumers will be able to buy. This coupled with the rumors about future wine sales!

web based iMessage
Everyday I sit in my office working on a PC, I long for a web based iMessage client. It would make chatting so much easier. We can’t all use Mac’s at work, even if we wish we could. Maybe my friends should just switch to using Facebook chat ;)

This is a rally cool use of tracking and analyzing personal behavior. As I’ve mentioned I am a big user of Daytum for tracking but that requires active tracking rather than the passive tracking used by Stephen. Analysis like this is great for tracking behavior patterns. I find more value in tracking the context of the behaviors - much like Nicholas Felton does.

Citi Cards and eBills
Random rant - I love ebills, you know the electronic bills that get sent to your banks bill pay system informing you automatically of how much you need to pay and when. Historically, every major credit card I’ve had supports ebills - I can’t imagine why any bank would not. Today I noticed something new, after having problems with getting my Citi Cards to work with Bank of America...

iMessenger for Mac needs to come to iCloud as a...
It was only a matter of time before Apple would release a Mac client for iMessenger. One of the reasons I moved to Google Voice a few years ago was the ability to carry on sms conversations on any platform. Since iMessenger came out with iOS5 I’ve been using it more than google voice for my close friends (where the higher volume is) so that i can carry on a conversation on my iPhone and...
