On my iPhone/Android…Saga – The Essential Lifelogging App

Saga – The Essential Lifelogging App

Download Saga for iPhone | Download Saga for Android

I have always had a desire to remember where I have been and what I have been doing. As you might imagine, my iPhone has made this even easier to do and also able to capture much more information. I have tried out a variety of apps for my phone, including Latitude, Foursquare and more, but Saga is looking to be the latest, and best app for capturing as much about my life as possible.

Battery life is often a concern when using any location based app, but Saga seems to have limited the burden on the battery by using other sensors in the iPhone to let it know when it needs to turn on the GPS system and locate you.

Saga allows me to confirm when I am at a particular place, notes my travel time between locations and also integrates my Facebook and Twitter posts in each day's journal.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
