Apple acquires ‘Gliimpse’
It’s been reported by ‘Fast Company’ that Apple has acquired ‘Gliimpse’ – a health startup company, aiming to create personalised and sharable medical records. Apparently the acquisition took place earlier this year, and although it hasn’t yet been reported on the Gliimpse website, ‘Fast Company’ have reported that Apple has more or less confirmed the acquisition in a statement made to them. This is a potentially ground braking partnership as to date, there is no single electronic health record that all physicians use. Perhaps even more shocking, there isn’t even a common file format across more than 1000 different systems! So, could all this be set to change with Apples’ acquisition of Gliimpse?

Fitness Apps – The Future of Training?
The previous blog saw us discussing online personal training – this week, we’re sticking to the ‘online’ theme as we look at fitness apps. The virtual world is growing and growing, and with all of the fitness apps, YouTube exercise videos and online PT’s out there, it looks like our gym facilities could quickly run out of fashion! Of course, many people will always prefer to stick to the more traditional method of heading out to their local gym to train. However, with so many alternative methods now out there, surely our gyms are going to have to offer something extra special and unique to retain members – otherwise we could be losing them to the virtual world of fitness apps! One side of the argument is that there's no reason to set foot in a gym thanks to hundreds of new fitness apps and online workouts. Personally, i’ll always prefer going to a gym to train – it’s a way of escaping the house and switching off from life’s demands. A gym can provide the facilities and equipment needed to get an effective training session done. If guidance is needed, there are fitness professionals around to help and most gyms have programs to follow if requested. However, for some, financial worries and having the time to travel to a gym, or having to look after children may be a barrier. In such cases, it may be that a following the guidance of a fitness app is a good alternative to still being able to train effectively.
