Google starts testing its ‘Google Sans’ font in Search results

Google is slowly bringing its Material Theme to most of its properties. The latest product to get the treatment is its Search on mobile. 9to5Google reports that Google is testing out its “Google Sans” font in the search result pages. This font is a slightly modified version of Product Sans, which Google uses for all its product logos. This font has been showing up on many of Google’s web properties and apps so it comes as no surprise it’s making its way to Search as well.

According to Google, this proprietary font is simply Product Sans optimized to work for different sizes—everything from billboards to mobile phones. As for when it’ll make it to the web, we can’t say just yet but services like Gmail, Google Pay, and Google Drive, have all adopted Material Theme in full or in part so perhaps the change might come sooner than we think.

19 Crimes wine brings AR to wine bottle labels thanks to app

Wine bottle labels are sometimes the reason consumers will pick a new bottle to try. Now with Augmented Reality (AR) wine labels can be so much more thanks to the Living Wine Labels app which uses cameras in iOS and Android devices to bring the labels to life. This is really suited to Australian Winemaker 19 Crimes, who derives branding inspiration from outlaws banished to Australian prison.

The result, as seen above, is both delightful and  a little eerie, but it also reflects that AR can have a commercial purpose outside of games and app experiences. As for the wine itself? I thoroughly enjoyed both the Shiraz and the Cabernet Sauvignon bottles.

Big Audio Dynamite: The Google Home Max Review

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

One of the more interesting segments in consumer electronics is the smart speaker market. Smart speakers are exciting because they are a culmination of various intersecting technologies. You have cloud computing, A.I., voice assistants and you also have audio technology.

Watching the smart speaker segment progress is like watching an intense chess game with each speaker release quickly countering a rival's previous move. One opponent releases an Amazon Echo, Google counters with Google Home. Amazon introduces the Echo Dot, Google rolls out the Google Home mini. Sonos unveils Sonos One, Apple drops the HomePod. What's more surprising is that none of these products were available three years ago.

Google's Home Max is a two-move checkmate, it follows the small and affordable Google Home mini and the original Google Home with a large format, hifi-focused smart speaker. I have been using the Google Home Max for close to four weeks as the main music source in my bedroom. Here's my review.
