Pandora reportedly wants to get acquired

Pandora seems to be positioning itself to be acquired. A report from The New York Times claims Pandora, with the guidance from Morgan Stanley, is currently in preliminary discussions for a possible acquisition. It isn’t specified if there are potential buyers. Recent moves from Pandora’s end—like buying technology from the now-shuttered Rdio and acquiring Ticketfly—are believed to help make the service more attractive to streaming music fans, especially with its stocks down 60 percent since October 2015. But it can also be looked at as a way to make the company more attractive to potential buyers. Pandora won’t comment on the report but we won’t be surprised if we hear more about this in the future.

New Netflix documentary series ‘Cooked’ explores our connection with home cooking

Food guru and author Michael Pollan takes us into the world of home cooking with his new Netflix documentary series coming out on February 19. Called Cooked, the series will explore the origins of home-cooked meals, its preparation, and how these are connected to traditions, feelings, and memories.

According to the description of its trailer video on YouTube: “Explored through the lenses of the four natural elements – fire, water, air and earth – COOKED is an enlightening and compelling look at the evolution of what food means to us through the history of food preparation and its universal ability to connect us. Highlighting our primal human need to cook, the series urges a return to the kitchen to reclaim our lost traditions and to forge a deeper, more meaningful connection to the ingredients and cooking techniques that we use to nourish ourselves.”

Pocket helps dyslexics read easier

It hasn’t been proven that fonts will help people with reading disorders read better and easier but it’s a good place to start. Read-it-later app Pocket is hoping to get more people to read by introducing the Dyslexie font support for its iOS app. Dyslexia, the reading disorder, usually stems from the reader’s inability to differentiate certain letters from each other, which means it’s difficult to make out words on a page. Dyslexie letters are longer, thicker, more slanted, and differently spaced than other fonts, which supposedly makes it easier to discern letters on a page.

“The best way to describe dyslexia is everything is just moving around the page,” Amber Roberts, a Pocket user with dyslexia, told BuzzFeed News. “With Dyslexie, I can actually read at a quicker speed now because I’m not decoding what each letter is as I’m going. I feel like a normal person.”
