“Planning on gobbling a few extra treats this holiday season?  Soon, your cell phone may be able to help you maintain your exercise routine and keep the pounds off over the winter months, without your having to lift a finger to keep track.”

“Researchers at the University of Washington and Intel have created two new cell phone applications, dubbed UbitFit and UbiGreen, to automatically track workouts and green transportation.  The programs display motivational pictures on the phone’s background screen that change the more the user works out or uses eco-friendly means of transportation.”
