APX Labs, which sells Skylight — software that connects wearable tech to enterprises — is out with a smart “periodic table” of the enterprise wearable ecosystem. It’s worth looking at because it gets so much right. The chart’s focus is not on hardware or software, although those layers are certainly represented. Instead, it breaks down enterprise needs by function. Categories on the edges — communications on the left, and “work and help” on the right — are about “doing your work,” Ed English, APX’s chief product officer told WTI. “If the left-hand column is about connecting to people, the right-hand column is about connecting to work, getting your help and getting instructions.”

Sleeping Well in the Digital Age [INFOGRAPHIC]

sleep

If you find you’re waking up exhausted or having lots of sleepless nights, you can partly blame the many hours you spend staring at screens of various sizes. A number of studies that have recently emerged suggest that the closer to bedtime you use your phone or tablet, the harder it is to get a good night’s sleep. Our bodies operate on circadian rhythms that play a role in how alert we feel throughout the day. And since our brains respond to light and darkness, that blue light emanating from your phone at 2 a.m. – when you are generally meant to be having the deepest sleep – messes with your internal clock and makes your brain tell your body you should be awake. This infographic by Boll & Branch offers more information and ideas on getting restful sleep in an age of 24/7 connectedness.
