ZEEQ Smart Pillow: Stream Music, Stop Snoring, Sleep Smarter

The super comfy pillow that plays your music, monitors and reacts to your snoring, analyzes your sleep and intelligently wakes you up.

Introducing ZEEQ, the world’s most sophisticated pillow. ZEEQ is not just another device or accessory, it is an active participant in your sleep. ZEEQ can play music to help you fall asleep, monitor and react to your snoring, analyze your sleep and intelligently wake you up. Unlike other sleep technology ZEEQ actually responds to the data it collects.
ZEEQ will help you fall asleep by allowing you to listen to music through the pillow and letting you choose music from your favorite sources. You can set a sleep timer in the app so the music will stop automatically - that way you can focus on sleep. We have even created some new relaxing tracks (some even using binaural beats) to help you fall asleep faster and achieve even more restful sleep.

How To Create A Simple Task Management System

Making and sticking to your to-do list can be very tedious and difficult to do. To-do lists seem complicated because we have to set due dates and prioritize one task over another depending on what we deem most important at that moment.

Defining Tasks

To start with this topic, we first need to define word “task.” In simple terms, task presents an action that needs to be completed now or later. We describe tasks in many different ways, assigning it to a larger project, with actions that need to be done in order for the task to be completed. Our tasks have abandoned one-sentence rule where we numerically ordered our tasks without specific details. By writing actions that will ultimately lead to the task completion, it is easier for us to trace our progress and gain short-term sense of accomplishment as we get closer to our final goal.

It turns out that task management is extremely important. In today’s world, success comes as a result of a clear goal and action taken towards that goal. If you don’t have a list of tasks, then you cannot take directed action towards your goal.
Tasks are great because they allow us to write our ideas and thoughts that will lead to our goals. Many ideas have been forgotten simply because people didn’t write them down immediately. Once you write down an idea, use actionable words that will create tasks and guarantee your long-term success. This also improves your organizational and time management skills, simply because you’re organizing yourself and your time, which is very challenging.

These actionable tasks also help us to keep ourselves in check and make sure we’re not creating overwhelming tasks but also that we’re not slacking.
The simplest rule to preent you from creating a complicated and long task list, is to look at your tasks. If any of them can be done in less than two minutes, make sure to do those tasks immediately. Otherwise, it will just clutter your to-do list and make you more anxious once you see the length of your tasks.

This is the part where most people struggle. It is important to recognize what tasks should be completed first. Also, this is the part that is unique to each person. We all have different lives and priorities that other people might not care about. This is why it’s crucial for you to think well about your tasks and the priority of each.

You can organize your tasks by having a variety of task groups. For example, a category named “personal projects” could refer to your current projects within your household. This category can range from “read a book” to “redecorate the master room.” Errands should be in a separate category because these tasks fall into everyday repetitive tasks. Another category could include “private events” where you can place family trips, birthday celebration, special family dinner night, etc. In case if you have a lot more ideas, you can have a category that reflects ideas that are not a priority but you would like to have them completed soon.

Finally, all of the tasks you set for yourself should have a realistic time period for completion. Avoid writing long to-do lists for a short period of time because these lengthy lists are more likely to bring you anxiety rather than productivity. If you have a highly complex task to complete, break it down into smaller tasks. Make sure your task list looks appealing and not cluttered. Use visuals to make your to-do list look more appealing.

Tinder Social – A New Way to Plan Your Night

Get ready to roll. Your night just got better. 
Tinder has always been about getting you out of the house to meet someone new. But sometimes you want more than a party of two. Often your best nights are when you’re hanging with friends, someone makes an unexpected connection with someone in another crew, and your two crews have an amazing time together. Maybe you spark a romantic connection. Maybe you make new friends. Either way, a good night out with your friends becomes something better. That’s why we’re launching Tinder Social, a new platform that helps you plan your night out. We first test-launched Tinder Social in Australia, where we learned that people were looking for a better way to plan their night out with friends—tonight. For this launch, we’ve made changes to the feature to deliver a more real-time experience. People can see who’s going out tonight, what they’re up to, and plan their night, easily and efficiently—all on Tinder Social.

Business Process Management Drives Innovation In Healthcare

Healthcare is an industry driven by processes. There are processes for patient care such as diagnoses and treatment. Then there are processes on the administrative and management side of the industry in areas such as hospital management or clinical research, as well as legal and regulatory processes that must be followed too. What most of these processes have in common is that they are nearly always being done inefficiently. Healthcare has historically been one of the slowest industries to automate and digitize, but luckily some proactive healthcare organizations are starting to realize the potential for improvements to their existing systems.

A key way through which these innovative organizations have started to realize improvements is through the use of Business Process Management (BPM) principles and adoption of BPM solutions. In using BPM, healthcare organizations are able to document and manage every step of patient care more efficiently. This is done through setting up workflows of the various processes that must be completed in the course of caring for a patient. Some of these processes are necessary for regulatory compliance reasons, and many are administrative. While the processes are important and necessary, they end up taking time and resources away from the most important job of anyone working in healthcare, which is to actually care for the patient.

Healthcare professionals should be able to focus solely on the patient sitting in front of them and not have to waste their time digging through huge patient files, navigating through legacy databases, or dealing with administrative tasks such as scheduling. Using BPM to make all of these processes more efficient allows the healthcare professional to spend more time helping their patients. This leads to increased quality of care as well as decreased costs through elimination of inefficiencies.

Currently, most hospitals and healthcare practices rely on multiple different software and manual systems to perform even basic processes. It isn’t unusual to find healthcare organizations that have multiple systems in place just for the process of checking patients in. Then there are separate systems for scheduling, billing, diagnoses, filling prescriptions, tracking patient progress, etc. The myriad of different systems makes a visit to the doctor less personalized. Doctors are forced to focus too much attention on administrative tasks and regulatory issues, which takes away from their ability to provide the best possible care to their patients.

Healthcare organizations that have implemented BPM solutions are able to more easily recognize areas for process improvements and increased efficiency. For example, they might notice that lengthy patient intake procedures are creating a bottleneck in the workflow which could be mitigated by asking patients to complete intake forms online ahead of time or through reallocating staffing. Not only would a process improvement like that save money for the organization, but it would also lead to increased customer satisfaction as patients wouldn’t have to wait as long to see their provider. BPM makes it possible to notice these types of inefficiencies that otherwise might be overlooked, leading to increased value for the healthcare organization.

iPhone Tesla Supercharger

Smartphone Supercharger

Tesla Supercharger for Phones

- A must-have for every TESLA Enthusiast
- Charging cable for your Smartphone that looks like the original Tesla Supercharger
- Ready-to-charge with Micro-USB / Apple Lightning cable
- 3D-printed and very realistic


A friend of mine showed us his new Model S in 2014. He took us for a ride to the next supercharger station and explained how the supercharger network is working. It was stunning to see, how Tesla solved the long charging time problem of electric vehicles.
I spent almost all my free-time of researching Tesla Motors and the Model S - this is the future!
Visiting the supercharger station again, the idea came into my mind:
the supercharger network is the key to success for Tesla - so every Tesla owner would love to have an own supercharger at home.
So I developed the smartphone desk supercharger. Loving the whole Tesla story I am happy to share all the details and files of my work.

Custom wooden USB flash drive from Fox Brothers

Custom wooden USB flash drive from Fox Brothers is a 32 gigabyte USB flash drive ideal for storing, transporting, or backing up files and would make an excellent gift for a photographer, computer enthusiast, or as backup in case your PC, laptop, etc. crashes or is damaged.

You can customize the woods used. If you would like a different storage capacity, they also make custom 64 GB drives in their shop, and if this isn't the right capacity either, you can send the request so they can work with you on a custom order. If you would like a different wood type, they can accommodate this as well. You can also put a name, company name, etc. on it using woodburning. 



FoxBrothersWood began as a way for me, Shane Fox, and my brother Clayton, to make a little money on the woodworking projects we made on the scroll saw and lathe and also to pay for wood and other materials to keep us working. We saw Etsy as a good option due to its low cost and easy maintenance and set up our shop in October 2015.

Looking for a project that would be interesting and relevant in today’s digital world, I decided to try making wooden flash drives. After a few experiments, I found that we could allow the customer to choose what woods and what capacity flash drive would be used, as well as giving them the option to have it personalized with a name or text. Therefore, it would make a great gift for a photographer, computer enthusiast, or just someone who wants to store files or back up their computer.

Customer service is a priority at FoxBrothersWood, so if you have a unique or different idea, let us know and we will do our best to try and accommodate that.
