Visible
Long COVID is the strongest ‘why now’ slide — and it has shone a light on all these other conditions,” says Leeming in an interview with TechCrunch. Trying it outAs someone who suffers from long COVID myself, I tried its solution out as I was at CES in Las Vegas earlier this year. “We aim to take fitness, wellness and illness into account with our tracker. No longer a mere risk assessment tool, Visible’s “illness tracker” has evolved into a personal assistant for health maintenance and a symbol of empowerment for patients. Even at this initial stage, it certainly seems that Visible is starting to illuminate a new way forward for chronic illness sufferers.

Solana Mobile still has a long way to go until it hits breakeven Solana Labs co-founder teases possibility of third mobile deviceLast month, Solana Mobile’s flagship web3 smartphone, the Saga, sold out.

“Ripple’s President Envisions Even Greater Growth for Payment and Enterprise Ventures After 12 Years”

Ripple Coin
Although Ripple has been around since 2012, it and the XRP Ledger are doubling down on its global payments journey. At the same time, it’s also aiming to become the go-to enterprise infrastructure provider, the company’s president, Monica Long, said on TechCrunch’s Chain Reaction podcast. Distinct from the Ripple network and protocol, the XRP Ledger is a decentralized public ledger with an open source code base that anyone can contribute to or use, Long said. “Foreign exchange is pretty concentrated in terms of the players who actually have enough capital to provide liquidity for those transactions,” Long said. “And so when you have a lot of concentration, you have a lack of competitiveness for the pricing.”

So why — after 20+ years — do we have little more to show for it than a bunch of robot vacuums? Instead, conservatively tens of millions of dollars go into R&D across countless companies aimed at building a better robot vacuum. Matic is — for most intents and purposes — yet another robot vacuum looking to make a name in a very crowded space.

“Siri’s Intelligence Must Rapidly Improve: Urgent Upgrade Needed”

Voice Assistants
Siri needs to get a lot smarter, and quickly Apple's voice assistant is being left in the dust by its competitorsHello from CES in Las Vegas! During that trip, I used Siri more than I have in a long time — and it was an absolutely dreadful experience. It’s mostly okay, but this journey drove it home for me: Apple is falling significantly behind in the voice assistant race. Siri was one of the first voice assistants to be available on smartphones. Google’s voice assistant has its stuff buttoned up tight, too.

Vinfast Ces 2024
Vietnamese EV startup VinFast is trying to get into the electric pickup truck game, as it revealed a new concept called the VF Wild at CES 2024 in Las Vegas.

Globally, the overwhelming majority of VinFast’s EV sales have been to a taxi company owned by Vuong.
