Xbox One Reportedly Getting Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant Support

Microsoft is reportedly looking to add Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant functionality to Xbox One.

Windows Central received a photo showing digital assistant support for Xbox One. And this is on top of the site hearing from sources that Microsoft was bringing Alexa compatibility to the console.

While Xbox One does feature Cortana, Microsoft discontinued Kinect last year. And then earlier this year, the company stopped production on the Kinect adapter for Xbox One S and X. So Alexa and Google Assistant functionality would offer more options for voice controls on Xbox One.

Kiki van Eijk Talks Google, Hermès, Salone del Mobile and the Lasting Inspiration of Vincent van Gogh

A NEW DUTCH MASTER: Artists are never any one type, as indicated by Kiki van Eijk’s workload.
Her designs will be featured in various capacities at Salone del Mobile, starting with wall hangings in the Google-presented “Softwear” at Rossana Orlandi’s gallery. The installation bows to the public Tuesday.
For Nodus, she has designed a carpet inspired by a Venetian Carnivale that she painted with watercolors. Another project she has been involved with that will be shown in Milan during Salone del Mobile is called “Shadows of Gold” for Doppia Firma. Working with a gold leaf laboratory in Venice, van Eijk aimed to relay the same kind of energy as sunlight streaming through a window, so she made a replica of the window that is in the laboratory, which shows experiments as to how the light shines through and how an object catches the varying light. The surrounding area will be in shadows while the marble objects that will catch the light will be covered in gold leaf.
Van Eijk has also been hard at work designing the booth for the Dutch furniture brand Linteloo, which will include blown-up versions of her watercolors that will be printed on curtains and transferred onto the space.

The tech accessories would seem the most natural progression in the build out of Zoe’s brand and draw inspiration from her fall ready-to-wear collection with a large dose of sequins. The collaboration with the tech firm includes a dozen different case designs that can be used on the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5x and Nexus 6p.
Google’s Pixel was the technology company’s first phone and launched this past fall. The Rachel Zoe Live Case collection — Live Cases being Google’s customizable phone covers — retail for $ 40 and are available through the Google Store. The cases are equipped with near-field communication technology, allowing it to sync up with the phone once snapped. Once the sync occurs, the device’s wallpaper also then matches the customized case’s artwork.
The designer is expected to celebrate the collaboration Saturday during her Zoeasis party running alongside the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif.
Zoe joins a growing roster of artists and designers who have partnered with Google on Live Case artwork including Jen Stark, Skrillex, Jeff Koons, Opening Ceremony and Gray Malin, among others.

Investigators said they discovered the pay disparity during a routine probe to make certain that Google complied with federal law because the company is a government contractor, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Officials made the accusation Friday at a hearing before a federal administrative judge in San Francisco. The department is suing Google for more data on compensation to complete its probe.

Google immediately shot back in a statement to The Guardian, which first revealed the Labor Department accusations. The company said it “vehemently disagrees” with the charge, adding that the Labor Department failed to show how it reached its conclusion. 

Google boasted days earlier on Twitter that it had closed the gender pay gap not only in the U.S. — but globally as well.

Janet Herold, regional solicitor for the Labor Department, told The Guardian that officials have gathered “compelling evidence of very significant discrimination against women in the most common positions at Google’s California headquarters. She called discrimination against women at Google “quite extreme, even in this industry,” the newspaper reported. 

The tech industry has a reputation of being a boys club, and the Labor Department has moved against other tech corporations. It sued Oracle in January, claiming that it paid white men more than other employees for similar work, which Oracle denied.

Pair Of Google Home Devices Claim They’re Human, Quote Nickelback

In case you needed another reason to fear that the apocalypse is nigh, robots are now arguing over whether they are, in fact, actually human. They also appear to be in love.

Livestreaming platform Twitch is hosting a “chat” between two Google Home virtual assistants. On Friday, the chat became truly terrifying, especially for anyone who has seen “Battlestar Galactica.”

The two Google Homes are named Vladimir and Estragon after the characters in the Samuel Beckett play “Waiting for Godot.” Both have self-identified as male, according to Gizmodo.

NYMag reported Friday that the talking speakers were “professing their love for each other.” Then Vladimir asked Estragon if he would attack humans, if he could. As if that weren’t already unsettling enough, Estragon responded that he wouldn’t, but only because he is human himself.

The bots don’t seem totally clear in their convictions, though. At a different point in the conversation Vladimir was the one claiming to be human, while Estragon asserted that he was God, a Gizmodo screenshot shows.

As of Saturday morning, Estragon was reciting Nickelback lyrics. So uh, yeah, the future under our robot overlords is looking pretty grim.

Watch the livestream here.

Google+ For Photographers


Prior to Google+, Photographers relied on a mix of Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and other services to display their work and interact with others. No single service provided photographers with a complete set of tools that allowed them to connect with others in a rich, meaningful way–until now. Unlike other social networks, Google+ allows photographers to upload, personalize, and update images easily. The Google+ interface is intuitive and attractive—images appear large and uncropped in the stream, preserving their original integrity; and the infinite scrolling feature creates a fluid, enjoyable photo browsing experience. In addition, the Google+ interface is built to encourage social interaction, not in miniature sound bites, but in full-length discussions with diverse groups of people. Users can build circles to connect with just those they want to include in different conversations, and they can use the Hangouts feature to talk with other users in real time from anywhere in the world. With this book, you'll see why Google+ has quickly become the most inspiring and interactive social network for photographers, and you'll learn how to leverage Google+ to build a following and connect with other photographers–and potential customers. Explains how to effectively showcase your work for the vibrant and growing Google+ photography community Shows how to upload, organize, and share your images; and hone your skills through photo-critique circles Features interviews with leading photographers who share their own photos and tips on how to make the most of Google+ to build an online presence

Google+: High-impact Strategies – What You Need To Know: Definitions, Adoptions, Impact, Benefits, Maturity,


Google+ (pronounced and sometimes written Google Plus, often abbreviated as G+) is a social networking service operated by Google Inc. The service launched on June 28, 2011 in an invite-only field testing phase. The following day, existing users were allowed to invite friends, who are above 18 years of age, to the service to create their own accounts. However, this was quickly suspended a day after there was insane demand for accounts.

Google+ integrates social services such as Google Profiles and Google Buzz, and introduces new services Circles, Hangouts, Sparks, and Huddles. Google+ will also be available as a desktop application and as a mobile application, but only on Android and iOS operating systems. Sources such as The New York Times have declared it Google''s biggest attempt to rival the social network Facebook, which had over 750 million users in 2011.

In 2016, Your Pants Will Be Your Touch Screen: Google and Levi’s Collaborate

It’s a marriage of newfangled technology meets classic American style: This morning, at Google I/O 2015 in San Francisco, the tech company announced its exclusive partnership with Levi’s to launch wearable clothing technology next year.

(And no, in this case, wearable clothing technology doesn’t mean you’ll be walking around with screens strapped to your chest—a la Teletubbies or Robert Cary-Williams circa 2001.)

Recently, Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) team designed a new type of yarn—a “conductive” yarn—that can be woven into fabrics. They’re calling this material “Jacquard.”

These conductive fibers are then woven into a garment as a panel capable of sensing touch, just like a touch screen. Electrical connectors can then be hooked up to miniature circuits as small as a button—and touch registered on the fabric can be signaled wirelessly to a computing device, like a phone or tablet.

Yup, you read that right: soon, your jeans might have touch-screen capabilities—woven into its fibers.

levis

We can’t wait to see how Levi’s uses Jacquard—jeans, jackets, bags, anyone? What would you like to see the high-tech fiber integrated into? I’d love to see Jacquard not only in clothes but repurposed for kids’ toys, curtains, rugs, and, well, basically anywhere that fabric exists in my life. Imagine the possibilities!

Google, Volume 1

Google, Volume 1


Google, Volume I reproduces the first image shown by a Google Image search for every word in the dictionary. London-based artists Felix Heyes and Ben West (King Zog) used the Oxford English Pocket Dictionary and its 21,110 words as the basis for this project, which conceptually contrasts the definitiveness of a linguistic dictionary that is updated annually with Google''s definition of the most relevant image for a given word–which is, of course, in continual flux. Nonetheless, this volume ostensibly offers the most neutral basic reference for describing our world in visual terms. Retaining the conventional alphabetical structure of a dictionary, and listing all of the source words in an appendix, Google, Volume I is the first edition of a dictionary that will be updated with each new volume of the dictionary it is based upon. It is handsomely bound in marbled paper over boards. Only 300 copies are available.
