The leading selling on-demand service, Gone, has announced the launch of a Gone Marketplace, where users can purchase second-hand electronics that have been inspected and approved for quality. With all of the risks in buying electronics from unknown sellers, this platform guarantees buyers know exactly what they are purchasing. The company taps into eBay’s most important category (used electronics is a $30 billion market). In addition to the launch of the Marketplace, Gone is also expanding its popular concierge service to Manhattan.
The service provides every user with a Gone assistant to simplify the selling process. The assistant goes to the seller’s home to pick up and package each item for sale. The service alleviates stresses of selling in the city as Gone handles the entire process from the pricing, pickup, packaging, contacting buyers, negotiating, and shipping of items.

Today INRIX, Inc., the world leader in connected car services and movement analytics, released a completely redesigned version of INRIX Traffic for iOS and Android. INRIX Traffic is a next-generation navigation and traffic app that learns user preferences to take the guesswork out of driving. The app integrates with a user’s calendar and learns their driving habits to create a personalized itinerary that includes automatic alerts, anticipated trips, favorite destinations and preferred routes.
Available worldwide now in the Apple App Store and Google Play, INRIX Traffic learns routines and preferences as users go about their day. INRIX Traffic adds favorite places automatically instead of requiring users to spend time inputting destinations like home, work or school. Based on learned activities, it creates a daily, driver-specific itinerary of anticipated trips, as well as frequent and preferred routes. By accessing calendar information on a mobile device, the app also adds events with addresses to the daily driving itinerary.
TrialX announced the launch of “America Walks,” a mobile based research study to determine the walking behavior of Americans. The entire study is being conducted virtually by requiring participants to download a mobile phone app that is available for both iOS and Android phones. The App will leverage the mobile phone’s step count sensor technology to automatically determine participants’ daily walking activity, thus being the first research study to measure such activity using mobile phones, instead of self reported surveys, pedometers or tracking devices.
The study also breaks new ground by being the first mobile app based study to be available on both iOS and Android devices. The America Walks App has been built using Apple’s ResearchKit Library but the team at TrialX has also ported the same for Android devices so that the app is available to a much larger population base.
Like the luxury appliance maker’s recently launched connected wall oven, the new Jenn-Air counter-depth French door refrigerator will feature wireless connectivity and a fully functioning application for IOS and Android devices.1 The app will allow users to view the appliance status of activated settings while also providing remote control of refrigerator settings. Users can choose from a range of notifications to receive such as a door that’s been left open or a loss of connectivity. A special mode allows for remotely activating specific appliance behavior such as making extra ice when entertaining or decreasing refrigerator temperatures in anticipation of doors being open more frequently.
Maynard notes that in addition to enhanced features, the control the app offers remotely can also help optimize conditions for the refrigerator’s contents. For example the Max Cool setting which lowers the temperature for a select period of time, can be activated prior to returning home to unload a large batch of groceries.

As a faithful reader of this site, you might’ve noticed that we’ve just reviewed this application, however this is version 2.0, a new full point release. The previous review you can read here.
Le Menu Dit has a better translation in this version as well as an improved user interface with better instructions and a new Feedback page. So let’s translate some menus and see for the results.
The first menu I tried was interesting because it has fish too, fishes are hard to recognise when you don’t speak the language, while everyone worldwide knows what chicken or taco means. “6 Oysters on the half shell” was translated into “6 hunters sur la demi-coquille”.
