  • Use Digital Touch on your Apple Watch – Apple Support – “Show anger” – I totally forgot all the Digital Touch stuff Apple did with their watch.
  • Google now refers to its different Assistant voices using colors – The Verge – I think this is pretty smart and also am totally getting Culture-style Drone aura vibes from it.
  • Gigaom | What Microsoft got right with its smartwatch nearly a decade ago. (More than you think) – “Apple’s forte is in mobile apps thanks to its strong developer base and tool set. It also has a wide reach for providing those apps. If anyone is going to crack the “useful apps on the wrist” market, my money is on Apple. But I’m personally not sure I want apps on my watch. I have enough devices that run apps: a smartphone, tablet, and laptop. Apple also redefined the smartphone market through the iOS breakthroughs in mobile user interfaces; something that’s key for truly mainstream smartwatch.” – from 2013
  • Smart Personal Objects Technology – Wikipedia – “The Smart Personal Objects Technology (SPOT) is a discontinued initiative by Microsoft to create intelligent and personal home appliances, consumer electronics, and other objects through new hardware capabilities and software features.”
  • Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence – "When AI is framed as cheap prediction, its extraordinary potential becomes clear: Prediction is at the heart of making decisions under uncertainty. Our businesses and personal lives are riddled with such decisions.; Prediction tools increase productivity–operating machines, handling documents, communicating with customers.; Uncertainty constrains strategy. Better prediction creates opportunities for new business structures and strategies to compete." also – prediction-making is not the same as decision-making
