The Fitbit mobile app now lets you sync multiple trackers to your account

File this one under first-world problems but if you are like us and own multiple Fitbit trackers (collect them all!) you no longer have to decide which to wear.

The last time Apple made such a beast was a decade ago: The 2005 12-inch PowerBook G4 model was discontinued in 2006, as Apple migrated from PowerPC to Intel processors.
