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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
