Technology Centered Results

Using Tech to Your Advantage We had a meeting yesterday at the office, and two members of the staff pulled out their fancy new bracelets. One of them was the Jawbone Up, the other the Nike+ FuelBand, both of which use various tools to track your activity and health. Each [...]
