On my iPhone/Android...Chronos: Find your time

 
Chronos icon
 
 
I am one of those (perhaps, odd) people who loves to track where I have been, what I have been doing, who I have been with and even more about my life. Chronos is another in the long line of life-tracking apps available for your mobile device that seeks to do just that. (I highlighted a similar app, Saga, in a previous On my iPhone... entry). Chronos does a great job of tracking where I have been and allows me to edit its automated decisions to make them more accurate. It also provides a cool weekly mail that contains an infographic detailing how I have spent my week. Unlike other apps, like Saga, Chronos does NOT include links to social media posting, which I do find interesting and, for me, this creates a more complete "lifeblog."
 
Still, I have kept Chronos installed and running for a while now and really enjoy the infographic data it provides on my travels each week. If you enjoy tracking your own life, consider downloading and installing. It's free!
 
From the iTunes App Store...
"Chronos is the best way to understand how you're spending your life. See where you’ve been and who you’ve spent time with, all without lifting a finger. You can also set goals and track progress, helping you to align the life you’re living with the life you’d like to live.

We built chronos because we often found that we’d get to the end of the week and feel exhausted, but didn’t have a great sense of where our time was actually going. We wanted to make sure that we were prioritizing the people and things most important to us.

chronos runs in the background on your phone, to automatically capture every moment. Persistent location monitoring is core to the functionality of the application and for best results WiFi and location services should be enabled."

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.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
