LOS ANGELES -- The new year is a good time to think about new ways to get fit. The AnyWear 3D Pedometer beats its peer because it has a slim design, while most others are bulky and awkward to handle in motion. You can wear it clipped onto your shirt, pants or around your neck.

Next, if you own an iPhone, chances are you probably also own an iPod. If that's the case, you might like this twin charger. The small i.Sound twin dock won't take up too much desktop space and is small enough to carry along on the road.

Now, more about the pedometer.

Now is a good time to think about new ways to get fit.

Most pedometers are bulky and can be a bother to deal with while walking orrunning.

What I like about this Oregon Scientific AnyWear Pedometer is the slim design, along with the option to wear it clipped onto a shirt, pant pocket or around your neck.

This device will measure distance walked, calories burned and time elapsed.

There is enough memory onboard to store up to seven days of stats, includingsteps and calorie data. The step counter will go up to 99,999 steps before needing to be reset. There is also a clock and alarm in case you need extra incentive to get out and walk.

If you own an iPhone, chances are you probably also own an iPod.And if that's the case, you might like this twin charger.

A slim dock holds and charges an iPod and iPhone simultaneously side by side.With its small size, 2.2 x 6 x 8.5", this twin charger dock won't take up too much desktop space and is small enough to carry along on the road.

This might also work if you have a couple of people at home or in a home officewith two iPhones or two iPods that need to be charged at the same time.

It comes with blue LED lighting, and unlike some charging docks, is licensed by Apple ( AAPL).

Site to see: SuperGenPass Password Generator

If you are among the hundreds of people who use the word "password" for your password, this free site might be of interest. What this site does is it will generate a "super" password (based on a very complex math problem) for better security.

Once you commit to this process, and it's better to do it gradually, you'll have togo through all of your sites where you've listed a password and change them to the new and improved "super" password.

How this works is, when you go to log into a site, instead of entering your password, you select SuperGenPass from your bookmarks or favorites and it will then generate the new password for you.

It also has a mobile version, which would be a good idea for business travelers who use open networks.
