Beta testers sought

If you’re a Garmin GPS user with a Mac, and you’re not happy with your existing software choices, there’s a new option coming soon.

The developers of Rubitrack are looking for beta testers of their app, which brings a polished Mac interface to tracking GPS and heart rate data collected through a variety of Garmin (and other USB-based) devices. You can check out screen shots and their frequently asked questions to see if it’s something that might work for you.

The beta offers a free unrestricted version of the software, which will expire November 1. Licenses are set to be 29 euros, or about $42.

Secure Bike Stands and Pump Art

From across the pond, we’ve got Secure Bike Stands from the Design Against Crime Research Centre

The project seeks to reduce bicycle theft by applying and integrating the design against crime approach to the design of bicycles, bicycle locks and bicycle parking via the generation of new benchmarks in terms of design standards, design methodologies, design resources, user evaluation and design education that will generate commercial product design application.

And here’s the result. I couldn’t find any good photos, but the shape of the stand works to prevent these various theft techniques (pdf).
