My iPhone Locations since June 2010

If you haven’t heard yet, your iPhone creates a record of all the places you go, and the information is stored in a database on your computer whenever you sync with iTunes. Tracking started June 2010 with software IOS version 4. Before June 2010 the iPhone was not tracking your location.

If you sync your iPhone to someone else’s computer they might have your location data on their computer. My roommate charges his phone on my computer and I have his location information on my computer–not cool.

In the past week since the location database was discovered people have written visualization programs. Here are three.

PC: huseyint.com/iPhoneTrackerWin –created the visualization above

Recovery Is As Important As The Workout [part 2]

Part 1 showed a single workout. Part 2 shows the affects of repeated workouts.

According to Mens Journal [link], supercompensation is the secret to getting more from each workout in less time.

On the other hand if you workout too infrequently your body will regress back to baseline, and you will never improve.

World Population Distribution (2010 to 2050)

Observations:

  • Most of your customers are in the Orient (no matter what you’re selling)
  • If you’re American you’re probably out of touch with 84% of the world (I am)
  • Asia is shrinking fast
  • Africa is growing fast
  • USA and Australia are staying the same size
  • Antarctica remains unpopulated (but Christine still wants to go there)
