OMD FWD w/c Oct 24th

During the announcement of Google Home at the opening of the Google I/O conference, Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, mentioned that 20% of mobile queries are now voice searches. While the market for virtual assistant slowly heats up, a MindMeld survey found that there has been a significant increase in the number of people now using voice assistant and voice search capabilities within the past 6 months. Transactional queries will become even more common as virtual assistants integrate a range of third-party services such as OpenTable, Spotify, WhatsApp, Uber and Ticketmaster. While the topic of voice and virtual assistants can be a conversation starter with tech hobbyists, it is also true that the general public is now starting to take interest in this field.

OMD FWD w/c May 23rd

Google and Levi’s have launched a new denim jacket with built-in smart fabric sensors that allow cyclists to control their music, answer a phone call or respond to a message. It is unique among clothing in that it’s going into developer beta testing this fall and unusual among consumer electronics in that it can go in the wash. The Levi’s Commuter jacket, due for consumer release next spring, will work with Google apps like maps and messaging, as well as third-party programs like Spotify and Strava. But with the average age of a child getting a smartphone now 10.3 years, should we be encouraging future cyclists to stay connected whilst peddling, rather than focussing on safety? As always, please share anything you find interesting at #OMDFWD
