Lifelogging – the idea of carrying a tiny camera around with you and recording images from your entire day automatically – is nothing new, and yet it’s failed to catch on as yet. A new device and online service from Swedish startup Memoto that has just launched a campaign on Kickstarter, could change that. Measuring just 1.4 x 1.4 inches, the Memoto clips on to your clothing. It takes a picture every thirty seconds throughout the day via its 5 megapixel camera, timestamping and geotagging each shot. Once you connect to your computer via USB, it will begin uploading your images to the accompanying Web service. (via Memoto: The Tiny, Wearable Camera to Take Lifelogging Mainstream?)

At Apple’s live event in San Jose, the company has announced its iPad mini, a smaller version of its iPad tablet. “This isn’t just a shrunken down iPad,” says Apple’s Phil Schiller, touting its craftsmanship. The iPad mini, is 7.2mm thick. That’s about a quarter thinner than the 4th gen iPad. Schiller called it “thinner than a pencil.” It’s 0.68 lbs and 53% lighter and comes in black and white.
