The Week in Review is a collection of both all the goodness I’ve written during the past week around the internet, as well as a small pile of links I found interesting – generally endurance sports related. I’ve often wondered what to do with all of the coolness that people write, and while I share a lot of it on Twitter and Google Plus, this is a better forum for sending it on to y’all. Most times these different streams don’t overlap, so be on the lookout at all these places for good stuff!
So with that, let’s get into the action!
DCRainmaker.com posts this past week: There’s no doubt TONS of interest in the FR910XT, and as such I’ve been busy answering questions and adding new sections to the review constantly. Good stuff abound!
Men’s Health/Gatorade/Urbanathlon Blog posts this past week: In addition to all my writings here, I also cover a bunch of topics over on the Men’s Health Urbanathlon blog. Here’s the goods from the past week:
Note that I post over there roughly every Monday and Wednesday, and Sarah posts on Tuesday and Thursday. It’s a tag-team event.
Stuff that I found interesting around the interwebs: Here’s a not-so-small smattering of all the random things that I stumbled on while doing my civic duty to find the end of the Internet:
1) The Business of Ironman Hawaii – Steve Fleck takes a good look at the business side of Kona, and what it means and has meant to some sports companies.
2) Wahoo Fitness starts a blog – The little company that keeps on chugging. Good to see them enter the blog world, would love to see others join them.
3) iPhone 4S includes Bluetooth Low Energy – With the iPhone 4S now including BTLE, it’ll be interesting to see how the low-energy sensor market plays out (since it competes with ANT+). I still think we’re talking a long way off until the two are truly ‘competing’ though in consumer devices, simply because there’s no BTLE devices out there today.
4) Bike-Car Proximity Sensor – I’ve recently been pondering some different ways of accomplishing something similar. Interesting ideas to keep the two transportation mediums from colliding.
8) Bluetooth Wireless Bike Radio System: Ok, this devices seems sorta messed up in implementation – but the basic concept is something I’ve alluded to in the past. Now it just needs to be better integrated with our bike head units and phones. (Thanks Victor for heads up)
11) Bike Babes at Interbike…a turnoff: An good piece on Bike Babes at Interbike, how it works behind the scenes and why they don’t always help the company. I actually agree here. For me, seeing Bike Babes at a booth means that in general the product probably can’t stand up by itself. Just my two cents…
You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2021 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s Gear Guide too.
