The Apple Fitness Plan

An Apple a Day: Apple knows a thing or two about sleek design, and now it wants its employees to be sleek too. Apple is launching a campaign, targeted first at its designers, encouraging healthy living. This campaign features an Apple Design + Health Kit, the contents of which include: weighted mugs (yes, that’s right, so you can do reps at your desk and drink coffee at the same time!), an exercise guide full of exercises you can do right in your office (with your mugs), a “Design + Health” Guide, and so much more! Time for all of you fast food loving, sedentary Apple designers to get into shape so Steve Jobs doesn’t have to look at you and cringe. Start lifting those mugs fast! ZDNet

Extreme Cooking: So apparently there is a YouTube trend of extreme cooking shows: quirky, over the top, culinary adventures that aren’t quite what Food Network would air. For example, the Vegan Black Metal Chef. Get your chain mail and black nail polish on and watch (and cook) for yourself.  The Washington Post
