Product Spotlight: Nuun Single Serve Tablets



Nuun is leading the way in portable hydration with three drink options to keep you refreshed and replenished all day, everyday. All three are ideal to help keep you hydrated and to make the most of the water you drink.

Our single serves have been made available so you can easily share your favorite electrolyte drink with your favorite organizations, events, and groups! Each gravity-fed dispenser box comes packed with 100 tablets in assorted flavors, each individually wrapped for sharing.

This assorted box of Nuun singles contains four of our most popular flavors: 25 each of our Strawberry Lemonade, Grape, Triberry and Fruit Punch flavors.



Nuun Active Hydration drink tabs are portable, taste great, and deliver a fast-absorbing electrolyte blend without the sugar or waste of bottled sport drinks.

The electrolytes that your body needs: Each tube of Nuun contains 12 tablets. Each tablet makes 16 oz. of Nuun, and delivers 360 mg Sodium / 50 mg Potassium / 25 mg Magnesium / 13 mg Calcium

Nothing that you don’t: Less than 1g of carbs, fewer than 8 calories. No sugar. No high-fructose corn syrup. No artificial flavors or colors.

Good for the Earth: One tube prevents the manufacture of up to twelve 16oz plastic bottles from sugar-ADE sport drinks.


About the Company
Nuun, pronounced “Noon,” was the first company to separate electrolyte replacement from carbohydrates. Before Nuun, if you wanted electrolytes, the result was a bottle full of sugar. With our simple, self-dissolving, sugar-free electrolyte tab, we revolutionized the sports drink forever.

Nuun was originally the brainchild of a student and professor from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. An avid cyclist, he longed for a lightweight, easy to use hydration method that didn’t include a sticky high-calorie mess. His research led to the creation of a sugarless, dissolvable, and portable tablet called Nuun.

Eight years later, Nuun Active Hydration is the #1 selling sports drink tab in the cycling, running and outdoor specialty marketplaces. As education about hydration and wellness grows, Nuun has become more accessible to a wider range of people. In response, Nuun has expanded its product line from sports performance hydration to include two all natural, vitamin-enhanced products for every day use, Nuun All Day Hydration and U Natural Hydration.

Be it a bike ride, a long day at the office, or a day at home juggling kids, Nuun has a tablet and flavor customized to help you stay healthy and hydrated.

Nuun and Company is based in Seattle, WA. Nuun is sold in over 5000 outlets in the U.S. and available in over 30 countries

The ‘Phablet’ isn’t a ‘Phad’ or a Phase – massive phones are coming

I’ve been looking with some lust at the new 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega Phone, which got me thinking about how quickly  we’ve gone from 4 inches being the ideal phone size to the S4’s 5 inch screen. With the Galaxy Mega Phone coming, it’s  entirely likely that 7 inches – the size of a Kindle or an iPad Mini – is in the  works somewhere. These are the devices people talk about when referring to  “phablets,” and it appears that we’re getting more comfortable with the idea of  massive phones.

How perceptions are changing

A few years back I carried around an HTC phone with a magnetic keyboard  called the HTC Advantage. Folks looked at me like I was insane and, to  be honest, I probably looked like it. A 5-inch “palm top” computer with a  magnetically-attached keyboard was pretty unusual in 2007. But it was very easy  to read the display and the keyboard made typing longer documents much easier  than the keyboards typical of phones back then. It was both thick and heavy,  which was inconvenient but gave it the added functionality of a weapon in a  pinch. Keep in mind, this was right around the time the iPhone was launched – at  3.5 inches.

Tech Spotlight: World’s first tablet for women

DO women need their own tablet?

A device dubbed "the world's first tablet for women" that comes complete with a pink background and weightloss app has been dubbed as sexist.

Other apps that come pre-loaded on the tablet include a clothing size conversion app, a "Daily Yoga", "Yoga for women" and "women's fitness" app. Also an app called "women's assistant". That's not all. It also contains a shopping list app, a number of recipe apps.

Needless to say the app is driving people crazy.

One Twitter user @fennelw wrote: "I guess their hearts in the right place but their willy is firmly shoved up their own arse (this is a saying now)."

Another twitter users @bonstewart wrote: "so, kids. 1 + 1 = 2. gender stereotypes + marketing = reinforcement of sexist stereotypes FOR PROFIT. any questions? "

Twitter user @BinkyJ45 wrote: "Really? A man must have had this idea. ePad Femme: A Tablet Computer Easy Enough for a Woman to Use! And It's Pink! "

The tablet is the brainchild of Middle Eastern company, Eurostar Group who says it is designed for womens' "diverse lifestyles".

Creator Mani Nair denied that the tablet was sexist. He told the Jerusalem Post that it "makes a perfect gadget for a woman who might find difficulties in terms of downloading these applications."

The tablet is wi-fi accessible, runs on Android 4.0 and contains 16GB of storage space. However, users are reportedly unable to download their own apps. There goes half the market that might have considered looking past the blatant sexism and embraced the tablet for its range of targeted apps.

Digital Spotlight: Surface Phone Concept

The gorgeous Surface Phone concept isn’t rooted in any sort of reality, but this concept video does a great job of showing the world exactly how terrific Microsoft’s smartphone could be.

Rumors of a Microsoft-made Surface Phone have been swirling around since the Surface tablet was first mentioned so many months ago. The desire for the Surface brand to extend to smartphones even spawned a few concept renderings showing what the phone may look like if it ever saw the light of day. The whispers have died down since then as people have moved on from the disappointment brought on by the Surface RT and begun looking forward to the upcoming Surface Pro. But that didn’t stop Tech Radar from bringing the concept to life in a mock promo video.

Acer announces new 7-inch tablet

Though it won't be available in the U.S., Acer has announced a new seven-inch tablet that will bolster the budget options on the market. The Iconia B1-A71 will be priced at under 0 and will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Acer has a brand new 7-inch tablet that will be heading to market soon–just not in the U.S. The Iconia B1-A71 is not only proof that hardware developers shouldn’t name devices, but also will add another option to the tablet market’s budget price range.

Priced at under $150, the Acer Iconia B1-A71 won’t overwhelm with its specs but it will likely get the job done. The new 7-inch option and its 1,024×600 screen will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as its operating system. A dual-core, 1.2GHz processor will power the device, along with 512MB of RAM. Internal storage comes in at 8GB, which can be expanded with micro SD card slot and micro USB port. Finally, a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera rounds out the Iconia B1-A71 features list.

While most of the announcements coming out of CES 2013 aim to wow and impress, the Acer Iconia B1-A71 probably won’t turn too many heads and definitely isn’t a device folks are rushing to try. But when all of the devices shown at CES hit store shelves and price tags are attached, the Iconia B1-A71 will probably look a little more appealing. If only Acer could have made the name even less convenient.

Amazon Unveils The Kindle PaperWhite. Where´s the white version?

Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite line boasts an illuminated screen, sharper display and better touchscreen, while the most basic Kindle will now sell for $69 and gets a host of improvements as well.

The new Kindle hardware inarguably stole plenty of attention at today’s event. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezo’s waxed lovingly about the lineup as well as users’ love for it before introducing us to the Kindle Paperwhite, the latest addition to the Kindle family.

“We love to invent. We love to pioneer,” he said. “We even like going down alleys that turn out to be blind alleys.” Bezos also explained that while Amazon is a risk-taker, it’s also perfectly happy when it strikes gold – and that it certainly has with the Kindle

While this is a pretty big announcement due to the technical aspects and nice price tag I wonder about the design.  If Apple has taught us anything it´s that beautiful design matters.  I for one tend to buy on looks rather than tech specs.  Design wise there is nothing that comes close to the elegance of Apple products and some companies aren´t even trying.

I really like what Amazon is doing with the Kindle, I myself am an avid reader and purchased the first edition of the Kindle Fire.  I´m happy with the technical aspects of the product and since I travel quite a bit it´s a lot easier than lugging around actual books (although I do miss turning the pages).  However I would like a better aesthetic design.  Why not create a white Kindle with a bit more focus on design aspect.

The Kindles fire at this point is for avid readers, you are not going to find a 15 year old rocking one and the reason is simple, it´s not cool looking.  I´m not saying you have to focus solely on the design however if Apple is the blueprint then more companies need to follow their lead.

This Now Exists: Tablet Made for Christians

It's got porn blockers, Christian radio, and 27 different translations of the Bible—it's the Edifi, and religious retailer Family Christian calls it the world's first Christian tablet computer, reports Fox News. And at just $149.99 for a 7-inch HD tablet that runs on Android, Family Christian says it is taking direct aim at Amazon's $199.99 Kindle Fire. "It goes along with our mission: trying to get people closer to God … through a tablet," says Family Christian's tech supervisor. Of course, Fox quips that this isn't actually the first tablet with that aim. "That honor goes to Moses and the Jews."
