WEARABLES: Mobile Technology now the "hot trigger" for better Health for all
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:02 CET under 01 - General News

While this press release and study isn't brand new, Fitbit UK published the results back in October already, the German press release just reached me today. Nevertheless, it shows that the topic "wearables" is a hot one and will gain more importance, the smarter the wearables will become. According to a new research recently released from Fitbit, mobile technology - which includes smartphones and other mobile connected devices – has a significant impact on the choices we make towards living healthier lifestyles. In fact, nearly half of people (48 %) surveyed in the UK, have reported strong positive behavior changes through the use of mobile devices that provide the ability to self-monitor their health and well-being.

ALLOWED: FAA to allow Airlines to expand Use of Personal Electronic Devices
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:59 CET under 01 - General News

As the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced today, the FAA has determined that airlines can safely expand passenger use of Portable Electronic Devices (PEDs) during all phases of flight, and is immediately providing the airlines with implementation guidance. Due to differences among fleets and operations, the implementation will vary among airlines, but the agency expects many carriers will prove to the FAA that their planes allow passengers to safely use their devices in airplane mode, gate-to-gate, by the end of the year. The FAA based its decision on input from a group of experts that included representatives from the airlines, aviation manufacturers, passengers, pilots, flight attendants, and the mobile technology industry.
