Nothing but good news today! We have a new Final Fantasy XV trailer for you. Bose may be launching its own streaming service, and you can now control Nest via Google Now.
Final Fantasy fans likely saw the new Final Fantasy XV trailer back in September, but that clip was only available in Japanese. Fast-forward a few months until today, and English speakers are finally getting the treat they deserve!
Square Enix has released the trailer in English, meaning you can now truly enjoy it. It’s a nice holiday gift, especially considering most people won’t be able to get the demo.
Opinion: The game looks very different, and it seems you will be traveling most of the time. Monsters can look pretty scary, and the active fighting system looks improved. In ways, the game seems very fluid and cinematic.
Bose continues to be one of the leading brands in popular sound products, right up there with Beats. Does this mean the company should also compete in the music streaming market? It turns out the company may think that is the way to go.
They have put up a listing, requesting someone to fill in as a “Senior User Experience Designer: Cloud Music Services”. If that isn’t enough proof, the job description may make you a believer.
“We are seeking an expert Experience Designer to lead design and prototyping of our next generation streaming music platform and ecosystem of products.”
Opinion: I personally believe this market is a bit too saturated already, but maybe Bose has something to offer that others don’t. Would you think so?
Today’s market is all about smart devices, and that is for a reason. These products are changing the way we live, putting everything right at our fingertips. One great example is the Nest thermostat, which has become even smarter this morning.
Thank Google for acquiring Nest, as a feature like this may have never had happened if it wasn’t for that purchase. Your Nest thermostat now works directly with Google Now. Want to change the temperature? Just activate Google Now and say the word.
You can use voice commands like “change temperature to” or “set nest at”. Pretty handy!
Opinion: I live in San Diego, CA, where the weather is great year-round and only the filthy rich tend to have thermostats. I have to say, though, this is some pretty cool functionality. I wish I could do something like this.
