Host Roger Galloway and I are looking forward to another great edition of the Frontier Technology Hour on Wednesday, July 9, from 12 noon to 1 p.m. Join us to hear all that we have to share on the next edition of the Frontier Technology Hour on KNTR’s “Speak Out.”
July is here, and summer is the perfect time to get in shape. We’ll be talking about wearable fitness technology that makes getting in shape even easier.
We’ll also discuss the ongoing transition from regular wallets to e-wallets, as more technologies make it safer than ever. And of course, we can’t forget the World Cup and the explosion of social media surrounding it.
According to Forbes, 17 million wearable fitness brands are expected to ship this year. Sales are predicted to grow to 45 million shipments by 2017 with several key players entering the market. Samsung, Google, and Nike already have fitness trackers for sale, with Microsoft expected to launch its own this fall.
For more information on wearable fitness trackers, see the Forbes story here.
Imagine leaving the house and taking only your keys and phone with you. If you make the transition to an e-wallet, this is a viable possibility. Among the best apps for those interested in paying with their phone are Google Wallet, Venmo and Passbook.
By syncing your phone with your credit card or debit card information, Google Wallet effectively acts as a payment source in store and online, and allows users to withdraw cash from ATMs using their phones. Meanwhile, Passbook offers the convenience of combining loyalty cards, tickets, boarding passes, and reward points. Just scan your ticket — it could be for a concert, baseball game or anything else — and you have it ready for when you arrive.
More detailed information can be found here.
And with the World Cup soccer tournament nearing the championship game on Sunday, July 13, we can’t forget that impact social media has had on the event. We’ll provide updates from our conversation on last month’s show, including a wrap-up on US goalkeeper Tim Howard’s record-breaking saves and how his performance made him an overnight social media sensation. For details, click here.
Of course, Frontier Communications always has some great promotions to discuss. I’ll provide details on some valuable deals, and the variety of other Frontier products and services that can be customized to fit your needs.
