Belief in a New Relationship

Voice-controlled interfaces are the future of interactions between us and our technological resources. With the introduction of Nuance’s Dragon, Apple’s Siri, and Google’s ‘OK Google’, perspectives in reference to voice-controlled interfaces are growing increasingly intriguing by the day, and for a good reason. We at the Daily Steak firmly believe in the convenience and creativity  of voice-controlled technology, and we will be incorporating it into our news application.

How do you see the future of apps?

In many respects, apps have created their very own ecosystems, and these ecosystems are evolving at an intense rate. When apps first came out, they where designed to do things like keep a more organized/customizable calendar, and to provide simple shortcuts to websites. Now, apps like “Layar” bring augmented reality to Google Glass, providing interactive facts and information about the world. Or how about another app called “Cadenza”, (made by Sonation), which allows any musician to be accompanied by a full orchestra. All you do is play your instrument, and the app creates an orchestra to play with you: it learns your progressions, it remembers your style, and it plays with you in real time.

An Evolving World Needs Evolving News

 

Larry Page (CEO of Google) sat down with Charlie Rose to talk about the future of technology, and the future of Google. On stage, at TED talks March 2014, Larry Page spoke of several futuristic concepts he believes in.  The idea that had the crowd clapping and cheering with the most enthusiasm was his belief in a system of anonymous medical records open to research doctors. In this idea, Page explains that with this system in place, a person with a condition would be able to see which doctors accessed their information, and why they accessed it. In turn, the patient could now learn about the condition they have.  “I think if we just did that, we’d save a 100,000 lives this year”, Page said.

Let us now point out a reality that we are all immersed in: the need for change. The world is not in a great place, and anyone who believes this notion may not be reading the news.  There are countries storming other countries, religious and non-religious war seemingly breaking out daily, and economies worldwide falling into travesty. Now is not a time for ignorance or a blind eye. Now is not the time to shrug off the misfortunes of the 3rd worlds, or even your neighbor. Now more that ever is a time to wake up and educate oneself. Educate your friends and family, and stand proud with the right to intellectually evolve.

Concepts such as Pages’ are helping sculpt the world to a better place. Google has made it possible for almost anyone from almost any demographic to acquire knowledge on nearly any topic.  We at the Daily Steak share the idea of informing the world, and assisting in self-learning.  Our mobile news application will provide a service that will assist you in creating your ideas that will change the world. With a new world of learning created by massive corporations such as Google, it is time that other aspects of our lives evolve with these drastically changing times too. We believe it is your right to have an ever-evolving news channel, so that’s what we are doing.

Innovating Our Daily Gaps


Every day we encounter gaps of free time, and in these gaps it is our conscious choice to decide what we will do with this time. One specific gap is that of our morning commutes. During our commutes some of us prefer the sound of music, some prefer deep thinking, others prefer listening and reading the news. Now, I mean not to narrow our free time to these three choices, but rather attempt to bring forth a few viable and popular options. With that said, the news is the option that we at the Daily Steak are enriching and is the primary focus of this post.
