Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been using a Moto X on loan from Motorola. It is not my favorite smartphone–that distinction still goes to the HTC One–but it’s the best software experience I’ve ever seen on an Android handset.
I’ve been thinking about this in light of Apple’s iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C announcements on Tuesday. Though I personally prefer Android, what I’ve always appreciated about the iPhone is how it wastes nothing. There are no gimmicky features or tech specs that only exist for bragging rights. Everything in the iPhone is there to help the user–or as Jony Ive says, to make the technology disappear.
The Moto X is the rare Android phone that feels the same way. Unlike so many other Android devices, the Moto X doesn’t have any junkware or useless gimmicks. The phone comes out of the box with a practically clean home…

Tracking your steps will be so 2012 if the sensor-packed athletic tank that the folks at Hexoskin have designed takes off. The company, which was formed in 2006, recently launched an Indiegogo campaign featuring a shirt that contains an ECG sensor, two breathing sensors and an accelerometer.
This is a washable shirt, much like the folks at Heapsylon are doing with washable sensor-packed socks, and the data this shirt generates looks pretty impressive. The shirt contains the sensors, but to transmit that information you plug a box into the shirt (there’s a pocket it slips into), and then you view the data on a smartphone app.
The retail price is $399, which is a hefty chunk of change if you are happy with your Jawbone Up or Fuelband. But if you’re a hardcore athlete or maybe a research scientist, this product looks reasonable. Hexoskin CEO Pierre-Alexandre Fournier tells me that…

Today was a fun day at TechCrunch Disrupt because a product that I have been developing for a couple months was shown today on stage as part of a presentation. I have been helping a buddy of mine with his company on and off for a couple years while he had been building a new music experience for consumers called Feed.fm. I always liked his product so we added it to Trulee to give people an additional music source while working out. Well, he gave me a call the other day and told me that Trulee would be shown at Disrupt during his presentation. Needless to say, I was happy to see my product flashed on the screen in front of millions of people, even if it was for a quick moment.
It’s been a while since I have done a post. Over the last six month I have been focusing on my fitness and wellness. As I entered into my new quest, I had to work up a game plan for losing the weight and monitoring my performance. As I looked around, I was dumb founded at how hard it was to find a single product to store and analyze my daily food and workout information. To make it even more complicated I wanted my gadget data stored as well, Nike fuel band, running watch with gps and wahoo heart monitor data.
After a couple weeks of floundering around the internet, I decided to build my own fitness diagnostic platform. Like all of my projects, they solve a life problem for me. So, I sat down with the guys, worked up a design and started coding. After about 30 days, we had a working interface that I could manually enter my information and see the results and I was amazed!
So, I showed a couple friends of mine and they agreed that the information returned was fantastic and they quickly wanted to know where to signup. I took this information back and we feverishly started working on a full product.
TRULEE, is a body diagnostic tool that is primarily driven by body activity devices that we use everyday. I listed my gadgets above… The interface is packed with information and graphs that are derived from basic input data that you enter each day and with gadgets it takes minutes a day!
We are weeks always from a release date, so stay tuned for more information on the product and launch.
