Unlocks Your Smartphone’s Senses Using Behav.io

“When you leave the house, the three things you usually take with you are your keys, your wallet, and your phone,” says Nadav Aharony. And the phone is a now “sensing and processing machine,” he says. The smartphone in your pocket knows where you are, who you’re with, how fast you’re moving, whether you’re standing up or sitting down.

What if we could refine all of this invisible metadata into meaningful stories?

Aharony and his colleagues, Cody Sumter and Alan Gardner — all recent or soon-to-be recent MIT Media Lab grads — have built an open-source platform that simplifies this kind of mobile data collection. They want to enable a new generation of apps that detect social and behavioral trends in communities or groups of people.

Samsung Vibrant/Galaxy S Get’s Much Needed Update

HP Reveals New EliteBook Lineup

Hewlett-Packard revealed a new line of EliteBook laptops today, using the same Forge design framework that was used for its business notebooks back in February. The new designs were built to look simpler, more durable, reliable, and are built in a greener way. The EliteBooks shine a gunmetal brushed finish, have a backlit HP logo, and “orange-colored accents.” The EliteBook 8440w, 8540w, and 8740w, will be replaced with the EliteBook 8460w, 8560w, and 8760w, which range from 14 inches to 17.3 inches in size. We agree that the model numbers are a bit bulky too.
