Wearable fitness trackers help kids take healthy steps

Lifestyle
Kids take fitness into their own hands with wearables like the UNICEF Kid Power Bands. Kids are jumping on the fitness band-wagon. Many parents are seeing their little ones taking a sudden interest in wearable activity trackers — like the Apple Watch that Jennifer Owens’ 12-year-old daughter, Gwendolyn, borrowed this weekend. “She was stepping in place to see how much she could get the tracker to move, and she was really getting into it,” says the Carroll Gardens mom, whose tween bookworm is a bit of a couch potato. “So now she’s saving up to get a Fitbit or another wearable for herself.” Manhattan mom Lyss Stern, founder of the Divalysscious Moms lifestyle site, says her 8 and 11-year-old sons are wild about their Nike Fuelbands, which track activity and sync with social networks to share

Steam users flood to take advantage of new refund policy, leave game developers in the lurch

Gaming
Share This article A few days ago, Steam announced that it would begin offering refunds to anyone who wanted them, provided they fulfilled a few minimal requirements.

There are still questions about other aspects of the license, but this major point has been resolved. We also know that the OS is going to pioneer a Windows-as-a-service model, offer some interesting Xbox Live cross-play opportunities, and, of course, features like DirectX 12. The one thing we don’t know — and by “we”, I mean both tech journalists, use
