Is technology spoiling your workout?
Over the past 20-plus years, I've developed an unhealthy relationship with my workout gadgets. It started with a Walkman, then escalated to a jumpy Discman, just about every version of the iPod and finally an iPhone with music synced to the Nike+ app....

Cameramakers missed the Wi-Fi bandwagon on the road to obsolescence
I've been writing regularly, sometimes constantly, about Wi-Fi since 2000, and ever since about 2005 or so, when extremely tiny, low-power Wi-Fi radios became available, I've been beating a drum about wireless photo transfer. Cameras started to ship ...

The road to obscurity
Once the preserve of doctors - at least on television - for a short time in the mid-late 1990s, having a bleeper clamped to one's belt was the ultimate comms status symbol. Then they vanished. In 2001 That didn't stop Sony describing 1998 as the ...

You may lose an hour of sleep, but daylight saving time promises an extra hour of evening light for months ahead. It's also a good time to put new batteries in warning devices such as smoke detectors and hazard warning radios.
Perhaps, says research psychologist Larry Rosen. “Workout technology can be valuable,” says Rosen, author of the book “ iDisorder: Understanding our Obsession With Technology and Overcoming Its Hold on Us ,” but if you are constantly checking your stats, “then that is going to create anxiety —... ” Exercise is supposed to produce endorphins and dopamine, chemicals that make you feel good, not anxiety neurotransmitters like cortisol. Even more potentially damaging, says Rosen, a professor at California State University at Dominguez Hills, is the social media component of some apps — posting your run on Facebook, for example, and relying on your friends to cheer for you virtually. Making your personal workout public sets you up for disappointment, he says: “What if you posted your run and nobody liked it. Does that mean you got nothing out of it. ”. Working out wired can also pose safety hazards. Those little app rewards “might also tempt people to push too hard when they should be listening to their body and not their iPhone,” says Jo Zimmerman, a trainer and instructor of kinesiology at the University of Maryland. Exercise tech, she says “is a double-edged sword. For some people, technology is the exact reason to get off the couch and for others it’s what makes them too competitive.
The day of the standalone digital camera has passed for all but professional photographers and those who aren’t paid for their work but have particular needs a phone’s built-in camera can’t meet. Early smartphone cameras were of often terrible quality but convenient—now they’re both terrific and convenient. And I’ve talked to many professional photographers for whom a smartphone isn’t a replacement for their DSLRs or mirrorless cameras, lenses, and flashes, but a supplement—a choice that they can reach for, and sometimes reach for first. Cameramakers had a window of time that stretched over 10 years during which they could have proven their relevance to casual and somewhat more serious photographers. I’ve been writing regularly, sometimes constantly, about Wi-Fi since 2000, and ever since about 2005 or so, when extremely tiny, low-power Wi-Fi radios became available, I’ve been beating a drum about wireless photo transfer. Cameras started to ship that year with rudimentary Wi-Fi, sometimes in the most expensive models and often in modest ones. In 2008, I covered the new Nikon S52c for PCWorld, one of the best consumer cameras of the time that included Wi-Fi, and its horrible limitations.
