Gone intros ‘Gone Lite’ with UPS shipping to declutter your life

Instagram has some custom layouts ready for you, and a facial detection algorithm that will make piecing pics of friends together much easier.

Google’s Places API for Android, iOS brings better location awareness

When you tell someone where you are in the world, you rarely give out your longitude and latitude (unless your name is Walter White).

Mondaine Helvetica No 1: analog dials, smartwatch information

Over at BaselWorld this week, even brands like Mondaine aren't immune to the market wish for "smart" functionality in high-end watches. The last time we heard from Mondaine - in a smartwatch sense - was when they took part in a protest of pirated smartwatch faces back in November. Now they're back with their own smartwatch - one with fitness tracking abilities. That's about it. Two years of battery life is fairly standard when it comes to a smart fitness tracker like the one you're seeing here - even if it has a high-end body.
