The Reebok ZR10 treadmill
Every now and again I get asked about exercise equipment. Well this time, I'm taking my own advice and went out last week end and purchased the Reebok ZR10 Treadmill.
It has lot's of physically accessible buttons, a screen of course, a 3.5mm cable to plug my iPhone in to, and it folds up.
I'm not actually getting it until August, but I have my favourite exercise iOS app lined up for it, Zombies, Run!: here is the description and link.
Welcome to Season 2 of Zombies, Run!
I'll let you know how it all goes when it arrives. Should be fun, and tiring (smile).

On the quest for a RSS reader for my iOS, OS X, and Android devices
With Google officially closing down Google Reader as of July 1, I'm now on a official quest to find an RSS reader that I can sync between all my different devices.
I've come across so far: Feed Wrangler: for which I used ReadKit on the Mac and the Feed Wrangler iOS app: seems pretty good so far.

Using my Mac like my iPhone: turning on/off wifi and Bluetooth
When I fly, I have to put all of my iOS devices in airplane mode, now I can do the same with my Macbook pro. With Airplane Setting, I can use it from the Extra's menu on my Mac to quickly toggle both wifi and Bluetooth off at the same time: no more fiddling with separate menus: very very nice. Not to mention, it also saves on battery power when you don't need wifi or Bluetooth.
The first PDF reader for visually impaired people
I'm not exactly sure if its the first actual PDF reader for vision impaired folks, and I think its only for low vision, not people who are blind: at least it does not work with VoiceOver on the Mac. I've put the link here in case anyone wants to try it out. Works on both Mac and Windows.
