Stock tracking with a sexy new twist

New iPhone application brings a whole new level to watching the stock market

A new iPhone application has brought the financial index to a sexy new level.

Sportswear company, Puma, has created an entertaining application called The Puma Index. It tracks global stocks, mirroring the increase and decrease of market shares in the amount of clothes a model is wearing.

If the stock on the Dow Jones industrial average goes down, the models on the application strip down to Puma’s new line of body wear. When the stocks go up, so do the layers of clothing.

“Think of it as an entertaining antidote to Wall Street woes,” the company said in a statement. “So now if you lose shirt, at least our models do too.”

Despite the new twist in economic indictors, other indictors such as the skirt length and hair length indictors have been introduced to appeal to the male audience. To be fair, however, you can choose between a male or female model to be your DOW index guide.

The Puma Index covers the Dow, German (DAX) and Australian (ASX) markets.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
