A dozen episodes ago, we kicked off this little podcast. This week, we usher in the New Year with our look at apps designed to help you keep your New Years resolutions. Nikole and Dave talk about a number of apps, including:




Nikole is also excited to talk about news out of China: They’re using supercomputers to combat their smog problem. And Dave brings up DoctorOnDemand [], an app for consulting a physician via your phone. 

On the show this week is Tina Haskins, an oceanographer who talks to us from Palmer Station, Antarctica – literally the most remote, far-away place on earth. She talks to us about caring for her dog, Kona, who stays behind in New Jersey when she does her work at the bottom of the world, via a Whistle [] activity tracker (sort of a Fitbit for dogs).
