In this episode, Marcello Sukhdeo talks about a new app that allows Alexa on Apple Watch, also, Encyclopedia Britannica has released a new free Chrome extension that will give you factual, relevant information in the search engine sidebar. And a new display technology from Intel that will result in over 24 hours battery life for laptops.
Intel has found a way to extend battery life by hours using a new type of display. The result is a laptop that can run for up to 28 hours between charges.
Intel is working with a Low Power Display Technology (LPDT), which allows for the creation of a one-watt panel manufactured by Sharp and Innolux.
The laptop that Intel used in these tests had an LPDT display running on a 15-watt Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, an Intel 600p SSD, UHD Graphics 620.
The Encyclopedia Britannica is looking to regain its relevance by attaching itself to Google search results. This is to correct the inaccurate information that the Encyclopedia Britannica believes exists on the Internet.
The new search product, “Britannica Insights,” is a Chrome extension that will take information from the encyclopedia and populate it on the sidebar “snippet” of a Google search results page.
Britannica Insights works with major search engines – Google, Bing, Yahoo, and others – on the Chrome browser.
Alexa on Apple Watch
Voice in a Can is an app that lets you interact with Alexa on an Apple Watch. It’s a standalone Apple Watch app, which means you don’t need to tether to an iPhone to use Alexa, and all you need is a Wi-Fi signal or LTE if you have that version of the Apple Watch.
