PCMag came up with this schizophrenic list, so don’t blame us. Here’s an example:
Exercise or Risk Your Favorite TV Shows
Watching TV is a popular activity while working out. But imagine your fitness equipment working against you. The Entertrainer ($139.99) is a wireless heart rate device that is activated by your TV’s remote control. Mount it on a treadmill, bike, or any other exercise equipment. Choose your level of work-out intensity, and then power on your TV. If you’re not exercising hard enough, the volume on your TV will go down; if you don’t get your routine back on track, the TV will turn off! Talk about taking candy away from a baby!
Not clear to us what’s so harmful about it, though. But we are just bottom feeders with degrees in medicine and biomed engineering around here, not big journalists like they are, so what do we know?
The schizophrenic list…
