So, a little over a month ago, after reading my article, featuring the JumpSnap, the jump rope without a rope, Brad LaTour of JumpSnap challenged me to actually give the JumpSnap a try. I was happy to do so and rose to the challenge. After all, what's the worst that could happen? I'd exercise more?
One trial month later, I have to say, it isn't all that bad! But it isn't all that good either. What I mean to say is that I wasn't 100% satisfied. Still, I did see potential in the JumpSnap and believe with a few minor changes I could find myself appreciating this exercise tool and using it on a frequent basis. read more »

Curious about who invented FM?
The tragic story of Edwin Howard Armstrong is an updating of the classic David and Goliath tale, as well as a cautionary account about individual creativity suppressed by corporate power misused.
Unless you're an engineer or a techie-type, you've probably never heard of Armstrong. He wasn't adept at self-promotion as were Thomas Edison, and Bill Gates, or any of the inspirations for the endless number of eponymous products and services out there. Still, he was the real deal.
Remember Wake-Up Juice from Back to the Future III? (View a clip on YouTube here .) It was a concoction of flaming sauces that jolted Professor Brown’s body to immediate alertness after a night of whiskey sloshing. Today, dozens of energy drinks and pills flood the market claiming to keep your body jazzed up with hours of unlimited energy, but most of them have annoying side effects (rapid heartbeat, shakes), or lead to addiction (hello, coffee!). But what if there was something that kept you awake without the consequences of traditional stimulants?
