- Facebook is testing a new feature that could make it easier to post your status to your News Feed: something called Voice Clips. It lets users record short audio clips that friends and family can then listen to.
- Amazon's Alexa digital assistant went mute for a while today after a data center issue caused a regional outage of Amazon Web Services
- Apple's wonderful accessibility features for the vision impaired and blind received a boost today from Microsoft with the Redmond, Washington company's new Soundscape app for iPhone
