I started doing the Team Beachbody Combat program this past week thanks to Chris and Julie Colotti and their group Virtual Fitness. Beach body uses their own program scheduler on the SuperGym site. This is fine, but I did not want to have to go to that site everyday to look up which program I was supposed to be doing. Currently there is no way to sync the calendar from SuperGym to your iphone via Google Calendar or even Outlook. This was not going to work for me so I started doing some research and came up with a way to get the schedule on my iphone. Hopefully it will help more of you also. Heres the steps:
Every once in a while you come across a small item that seems potentially frivolous but at the same time very handy. The Seagate GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage is in fact one of those things.
It is only 500 Gb which is pretty small for a portable hard drive now a days, especially when it is so easy to pick up a 128 GB USB Flash Drive but this little guy has lots of cool features. The one I wanted the most was the ability to have it use the internal wifi hotspot. You simply fill up the drive via a drag and drop just like every other USB hard drives, then when you unplug, the fully charged drive (yes it has a 5 hours battery life also) you can have it start its own wife hotspot. You can only connect to the device but when you do you can see the pictures, files and movies that you installed. You then stream directly from it. My plan is to leave it turned on in my bag int he overhead on the airplane then stream to my ipad which has alot less space. If 500GB is not enough for you, Seagate has just released a 1TB version, that is $189 on Amazon now. It also allows for streaming from 3 devices where the 500 GB only allows from one, but I did not need that and 500 GB was more than enough for me.

I was fortunate to spend the last couple days at the Charlotte VMware User Summit. For those of you not familar, the User Summits or Conferences are larger regional and all day conferences for the VMware Users Group. I happen to be one of the leaders for the Washington DC group, and have been heavily involved in the Potomac Regional VMware User Conference that is coming up next week. If you are in the area and have not registered, then you should using this link http://www.vmug.com/p/cm/ld/fid=1742.
