A few months ago, I reviewed a label maker by Logan Tech which really raised the bar on how labels are created in terms of both ease of creation and the resulting crispness. While perhaps out of the price range for some, I still considered it a worthwhile investment which would enrich your life, well, for a lifetime of Braille. That’s both important and powerful to me.

Not a month has gone by since We posted an article on Narrator including AI-driven image tags and Microsoft is back at it yet again, though with an older project which finally has made public fruition.

I have been an advocate of the wearable market within my own life, even though market trends would indicate otherwise as of late. Recently, some wearable companies have gone under; Many would say that at the present time, The Apple Watch has created its own category and largely became a device which is to rival others such as Fitbit, although not quite in the same category as these other devices currently are.

Instead of shouting though, why not use them as an intercom? According to CNET, Amazon has recently released a new feature called Drop In. As you probably may know, The Echo is able to make and receive calls and messages to other echo devices. Instead of waiting for the other party to answer, Drop In works exactly the way it sounds. Once you initiate the connection, you can freely begin to talk and hear the person on the other end.

If there was a word which is to define the era that dominates this early 21st century, it no doubt would be the cloud. Everything has moved to incorporating some cloud-based feature or another. Whilst screen reading has done OCR and other image recognition prior, this too was relegated to locally performed magic, rather than anything that used the cloud to process data. The rise of huge AI clusters which now can process trillions of calculations a second has created a better opportunity for so much more to be off-loaded to these systems.
No doubt this has happened to you. You’re riding in a car, you reach your destination, and then it’s time to take off your seatbelt and exit the vehicle.
