For about 5 minutes one summer back in the 80s, girls with huge mullets & rocker dudes who came to see the headliner stood in awe of a glammed-up group of b-grade hairfarmers called Ratt.

Singer Stephen Pearcy brings the years of using and abusing into focus some two decades later in this new book. As you might imagine, it’s a touching tale.

The reason nobody under 30 gives a squirt about activity trackers that count your steps is because unless you’re a retiree or a stroller mom, walking around isn’t really an “activity.’ Enter Lit, a new kind of activity tracker designed for action sports.

The technology is certainly complex but the smooth, rounded look of the display is stunning in its simplicity.
