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 (RM767) 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 RM440,505) so far on a goal of just US$50,000 (about RM163,150) - 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.

Currently, the channel&rsquo;s HBO Go service (pictured) is only usable by cable/satellite subscribers - and friends and family members that have syphoned their login info.</p> <p>&ldquo;It is time to remove all barriers to those who want HBO,&rdquo; said CEO and chairman, Richard Plepler. &ldquo;All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO [in the United States] and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them.&rdquo;</p> <p>No word yet on whether it will simply be a paid option to access all of HBO Go&rsquo;s content, including original series like <em>Game of Thrones</em> and <em>True Detective</em>, or perhaps a smaller offering to appease cable providers. But after years of pleas, it&rsquo;s great to know that HBO will finally acknowledge them.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.timewarner.com/newsroom/press-releases/2014/10/15/hbo-chairman-and-ceo-richard-plepler-announces-hbo-to-offer-a">Time Warner</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/amazon/fully-charged-samsung-galaxy-k-revealed-amazon-teams-hbo-and-withings-now-tracks-your-blood-o">Fully Charged: Samsung Galaxy K revealed, Amazon teams with HBO, and Withings now tracks your blood oxygen</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="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</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"> Lollipop statue unveiled at Google HQ </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>Google played the run-up to Android 5.0&rsquo;s name announcement for laughs <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/android/fully-charged-leaked-fitbit-adds-constant-heart-rate-tracking-google-trolls-fans-over-androi">earlier this week</a>, but when it comes to decorating the lawn outside its Mountain View, California headquarters, the company is serious about maintaining tradition.</p> <p>Like previous versions, Android Lollipop has its own representative statue on the lawn, and this one is a particularly whimsical addition.
