Do you feel lethargic?

News of an upcoming NTT DoCoMo phone.

The sensor can tell whether you're walking, running, climbing stairs, or resting....

Any phone tracking my stress levels in Tokyo would see Everest-like peaks at the time of train & subway travel. Perhaps it would learn to play soothing music at those times?

Of course, the value of such a device increases significantly were all that health data to be accessible for more refined analysis off the phone. If only there were a standardized, secure, & privacy-respecting framework by which this might be accomplished ...

Enter, Liberty Advanced Client, stage left, trumpets blaring.

Separately, the possibility of tracking employee sloth helps to explain why my Tokyo bosses are promising me a new "state of the art" phone that I will "not want to ever leave my side".
