Under Armour (owner of MapMyFitness) buys both MyFitnessPal and Endomondo

What’s really astounding is that none of the companies acquired make actual devices.  Instead, everything is about platform and data.  And – more importantly, users.

Endomondo is the smaller of the two, clocking in at 20 million registered users.  While MyFitnessPal dwarfs that at 80 million users.  That is added to the previous Under Armour (effectively MapMyFitness) user base of 30 million.  Total users: 130 million.

Just doing some back of the napkin math, if you were/are a user of those acquired platforms, here’s what you were worth:

MyFitnessPal: $5.94
MapMyFitness: $7.50 (at purchase there were 20M users)
Endomondo: $4.25

What’s in Those Supplements? 

The New York State attorney general’s office accused four national retailers on Monday of selling dietary supplements that were fraudulent and in many cases contaminated with unlisted ingredients.

The authorities said they had run tests on popular store brands of herbal supplements at the retailers — Walmart, Walgreens, Target and GNC — which showed that roughly four out of five of the products contained none of the herbs listed on their labels. In many cases, the authorities said, the supplements contained little more than cheap fillers like rice and house plants, or substances that could be hazardous to people with food allergies.

Perhaps eat food and lay off the additives.
