TechnologyTell Review: V-Moda Faders VIP Tuned Metal Earplugs

Although I don’t get to see musicians live that often, I make it a point to go when I can. It’s an indulgence that everyone should do a few times a year, since music is so much more powerful and exciting that way. Aside from a potentially-packed venue, the only real drawback would be ringing in the ears due to lack of protection.

Sit much? Let Darma, world’s first inactivity tracker, coach you

Health is both big news and big business these days. It probably always has been, if you consider the decades of infomercials peddling the latest iteration of fad exercise equipment and/or diet pills. But that’s not what I’m talking about.

So, when I read about a new smart yoga mat being crowd-funded, my impulse reaction was an eye roll corresponding with my usual “wtf” reaction.

Blast music not ears, DUBS deliver safe audio experience

TechnologyTell Review: Plantronics BackBeat FIT

When it comes to exercise, music is a driving force. Some studies have shown that people are less likely to commit to working out without music. However, not every set of headphones or earbuds are ideal when it comes to cords, sweat, and motion. It makes sense that a wireless product would pair well with activity.

STD and HIV test results delivered via an app? It’s happening with Healthvana
