Fitness trackers have been improving steadily over the past few years, but if the latest gadget lives up to its lofty claims, they may have met their match in Moov. The newly-announced Moov fitness gadget aims to be more than just a fitness tracker, it wants to be your fitness coach. The problem with most fitness trackers is their passive nature. They simply sit on your wrist, collecting data, and leave it up to you to parse what it means.
Moov, on the other hand, takes that data, relays it to your phone for processing, and uses what it knows about you and your goals coach you on exercising better. It wants you to be stronger and it wants you to be safer. Moov worked with real athletes and trainers to design Moov's algorithms and ideal forms. By know how the pros do it, Moov can instruct you on how to run, box, swim, bike, and exercise like them. It can even adjust to your known injuries, coaching you to adjust your stride to avoid aggravating that knee injury from your intramural frisbee days. Moov is about precision, whereas other fitness trackers tend to be about generalization.
Secret for iPhone is part of a new wave of social networking. Secret lets you post what's on your mind but lets you do it anonymously. Your friends can still see what you write, and the friends of your friends, and even the entire network if it becomes popular enough. You can all comment back and forth as well. Your friends just won't know you wrote it. (At least they won't be able to prove it!) Secret keeps your identity hidden behind generic avatars in an attempt to remove your inhibitions, your concerns about being judged or facing repercussions. But does it work?
Home Sharing is a great way to stream content from your Mac right to your Apple TV.

It's an older feature, more pull than push, but for home movies, personal video collections, ripped CDs, and more, it still works great. Here's how!
