Automatic locking with your phone as the key? Indeed. GPS tracking for when it&rsquo;s lost or stolen? Sure. How about the ability for the suitcase to weigh itself with a tug of the handle? Incredibly, yes.</p> <p>And the Bluesmart even has a hefty built-in battery that is advertised to recharge phones, tablets, and more up to six times over before it needs to be plugged back in. The makers claim that the suitcase will be compliant with all travel regulations, which is the one red flag we had coming into the campaign.</p> <p>A US$235 (&pound;145) investment now can get you one Bluesmart for yourself come next August, says the Indiegogo page, and the campaign has already caught fire, raising more than US$135,000 (about &pound;83,000) so far on a goal of just US$50,000 (about &pound;31,000) - and that&rsquo;s in just the first day. Barring unforeseen issues, this project is ready to follow through on its bold ambitions for next year.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bluesmart-world-s-first-smart-connected-carry-on">Indiegogo</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/these-suitcase-speakers-pack-bags-sound/news-1">These suitcase speakers pack bags of sound</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/iO3mQuAfp5M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Gmail 5.0 for Android adds Outlook, Yahoo support </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>According to a report from Android Police, Google&rsquo;s next big revision of the Gmail app - which will be available in time for Lollipop&rsquo;s release and use the material design aesthetic - will expand its capabilities to allow Outlook, Yahoo, and other mail service users to access their accounts.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s a big shift for the service, but it makes sense for Google, as the company derives a significant portion of its income from advertising - the more users, the better, regardless of which mail provider they prefer.

Expected to be officially revealed tomorrow at an event in London, the new handset appeared on a Brazillian retailer&rsquo;s site over the weekend.</p> <p>According to the listed specs, the Moto E will feature a 4.3in display, a dual-core 1.2Ghz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot that accepts cards up to 32GB in size. It also includes a 1,980mAh battery and a 5-megapixel back camera, and it&rsquo;ll accommodate variously colored Moto Shells on the back.</p> <p>No word on pricing, but with the better-equipped Moto G launching at &pound;135.00 not long ago, it&rsquo;s sure to be cheap.

No idea on that front, though Gmail features are often optional and it&rsquo;s hard to believe that Google would force all users to accept such a drastic shift without time to adjust. That said, we&rsquo;re excited to see how this slick new approach actually pans out under the weight of a heavy inbox load.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.geek.com/apps/google-is-testing-new-web-based-gmail-features-1593555/">Geek.com</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/chrome-os/8-essential-google-chrome-os-apps-get-your-chromebook-flying/feature">8 Google Chrome OS apps to get your Chromebook flying</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="614" title="Rumored Gmail overhaul" alt="Rumored Gmail overhaul" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/gmail-new.png?1399881388" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Riding a roller coaster with Oculus Rift on?
