Whether you consume it or create it, entertainment is likely a huge part of the reason you love tech. You probably already have a subscription to big names such as Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, or Netflix, and those are all good services, but they’re not free. Crackle , on the other hand, is totally free, and you can stream its offerings from just about every desktop computer, phone, tablet, Internet video streaming box, or modern game console. Crackle doesn’t have a huge selection of films and TV shows, but it does have some heavy-hitting movies and series such as Talladega Nights , The Professional , and Seinfeld . Not sure what you want to watch? Sign up for MovieLens , an ad-free recommendation service set up by the University of Minnesota that uses your own ratings of flicks to predict new movies that you’ll enjoy.

Apps or applications are pieces of software that can be downloaded and installed on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Some mobile devices contain accessibility features that help older users perform tasks such as reading, typing and browsing the web. The assistive technologies included in the device will depend on what operating system it runs on, such as Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android.

I’ve been curious about tracking physical activity since I was an undergraduate. I remember traveling to a local middle school with a researcher interested in how physical activity was taught in low-income Native American communities. Back then, the best we could do was have the children wear simple electromechanical pedometers to count their steps during their physical education classes.
