Due to its ease of measurement and calculation, it is the most widely used diagnostics tool to identify weight problems within a population, usually whether individuals are underweight, overweight or obese.

Dead Simple iTunes Library Recovery with iPod -> Folder


Windows and Mac OS X only: Freeware program iPod -> Folder allows users a super-simple way to do a full backup of their iPod on any Mac or Windows computer.

We’ve actually posted a few methods for backing up your iPod in the past, but iPod -> Folder is a nice standout both for its simplicity and is Windows and Mac versions. The downside is that iPod -> Folder doesn’t allow you to selectively backup music, so it’s an all-or-nothing affair. That said, this is a great little app to download and stick on your iPod so you can easily “back up” your music at any computer. Thanks Rory! — Adam Pash

Instapaper for iPhone/iPod touch


I’ll admit that when I first started trying out Instapaper, as a quick and dirty “bookmark this for later” web service, I didn’t see that many advantages to it. There’s delicious.com for bookmarking and Evernote for saving clips and PDFs; NetNewsWire for following my preferred sites… I felt like I had the bases covered. Sure, Instapaper was fast and dead easy (you would expect as much from Marco Ament, lead developer at microblogging service Tumblr), and having a personal ‘newspaper’ page of items to review at leisure was nice, but nothing earthshaking. Then, wouldn’t you know it, everything changed.

Pandora Radio (for iPhone & iPod touch)


Pandora Radio is one of my absolute favorite iPhone apps. (It’s also one of my favorite Web sites, so if you don’t own an iPhone or iPod touch, you can still enjoy the magic of Pandora on the Web at http://www.pandora.com.)

What is Pandora Radio? Simply put, Pandora Radio streams music you’re almost certain to enjoy to your iPhone. Sounds impossible but it not only works, it works incredibly well.

There?s no shortage of applications that can stream music to your iPhone or iPod touch. But while many Internet-based radio stations play great music, the music they play is selected by a program director or disk jockey who has no idea what you might enjoy hearing.
