A new app called Moves could be the simplest fitness app ever.
It lives in your iPhone and tracks your activity in the background, so there’s no separate device to learn how to use or remember to carry (you already have your phone on you at all times).

But another nugget in the article is:
However, they also measured the average distance that each Twitter user travelled according to their geolocation data. They found that people in cities tend to travel over a larger area than people who live in less densely populated areas.
City dwellers travel farther. Which shouldn’t be a surprise I guess but is.
After years of debate about Sound Transit’s light-rail line in Bellevue, the City Council and the Sound Transit board will decide this week which options — some of them still controversial — to take to final design.
Anyone want odds on Bellevue getting light rail right?
