In what is arguably the most important facet of reading news, Google has implemented a fact checking section that sits on the right hand side. This special fact checking section contains articles from popular fact checking websites such as Snopes or PolitiFact along with reputable news agencies like the BBC.

What if I told you that less than half of design teams frequently work with analytics or data science employees during an iterative design process? That's worrying because our research finds that this collaboration is a critical part of effective, modern design. For example, John Maeda, design author and Chief Experience Officer at Publicis Sapient, says that "dataful" is one of four "ingredients" needed to succeed in design. Unfortunately, it's hard to be "dataful" without talking to data scientists who have lots of data. … [Read more...] about Just how much do design and data science collaborate?
The physical cards slot into the top of the speaker like the nostalgic HitClips of yore, which encased bite-sized clips of music in tiny plastic squares. Parents can connect the speaker to a companion app to “upload” their own content onto blank cards, or purchase cards that connect to Yoto’s library of music, activities, sound effects, and audiobooks from partners like Random House and the Roald Dahl collection.

Blank cards can be customized with your own MP3s, purchased audiobooks, or anything you upload to Yoto’s server. There’s free daily content, but Yoto is also selling an annual subscription service that delivers new audio cards to your house four times a year, which costs $94. That seems like a lot to pay compared to the catalogs of audiobooks and … [Read more...] about Pentagram designed a smart speaker that’s like HitClips for kids
