80's The Club

Went with my wife this weekend to hang-out, and decided to go to 80's The Club(in San Juan PR).Since we are from that wonderful time and love the 80's music, we gave it a shot. Got there, place was not so packed, which is good. Music was good, nice selection. I was hoping it was a little louder though. But what really hot me was the fact that the decoration was fairly poor. The club was set up on top of and older decoration of the previous club "Egipto".

So there you are dancing to the 80's in an Egyptian background. Kind of throws you off a bit. The only 80's theme there was, were some glitter from the ceiling and a few Disco Balls. So if you are in Puerto Rico and visit the club, I'd say that you will have a good time. But don't get confused when you see all the Egyptian decoration.

Nike Plus - The sensor in the shoe

Recently I took on running again. Just for the sake of good health. But i needed to track my runs in a more technical way than just jotting down my times. So when I went to the shoe store to get some new Sneakers I thought I would give it a try and get the Nike+. So I get the sneakers, now I need to buy the sensor that goes in the shoe, that would later sync with the ipod Nano. Yes just the Nano. Not the iPhone not the iTouch....just and only the Nano.

Once i git the shoes and the sensor, I went on to give it a try. Went to the track walked some 400 meters to do the more accurate calibration. Then the running begins. Turns out the its really cool. I can select a song and assign it as my power song, while im running whenever i need that power song for extra boost I just press and hold the center button of the nano, and the power song will kick in. While running I can just press the center button (no holding) and a configurable voice male or female will tell me how much have i ran and long has it taken. Very nice.

Once you have finished your run, you can sync your ipod and the data can be sent to a profile you can create at Here you can see graphically your runs and your progress. Its a great way to keep record. I give it 2 thumbs ups.
