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.

Gmail’s Multi-Call Feature

It’s always more fun talking to two buddies at the same time than talking to either individually. Google has added the same feature into its Gmail service to make the conversations more enjoyable.

It’s more fun to read email and place a call from the same interface rather than switching back from mail to make a call. With preliminary voice and video calls support, Gmail brought forth the facility of calling land line and mobile phones across USA and Canada last year. Google has now enhanced this facility by adding multi-call support, allowing users to switch between callers using resume and hold features, much akin to call waiting.
