An insanely detailed leak of Apple’s forthcoming Healthbook software (likely a part of iOS 8) by Mark Gurman:
Each category of functionality is a card in the Healthbook. Cards are distinguished by a color, and the tabs can be arranged to fit user preferences. As can be seen in the above images, Healthbook has sections that can track data pertaining to bloodwork, heart rate, hydration, blood pressure, physical activity, nutrition, blood sugar, sleep, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, and weight.
The big question, as Gurman notes at the end, is which devices will supply the data to Healthbook? Certainly, the iPhone itself is one (especially the models with an M7 chip). And it sure sounds like some sort of forthcoming “iWatch" would be another. But given the scope of Healthbook, it also seems likely to me that Apple will allow third-party devices to work with the software. This being Apple, you can be sure such a list will be curated, at least at first.
To that end, just remember that Tim Cook remains on Nike’s Board of Directors…
eMarketer says desktop search is making way for mobile very very fast. No surprise, considering we are spending more and more time on mobiles. I wonder how this is going to impact the search ecosystem in general. From eMarketer Press Release:
If you need to extract data from a web page, then the chances are you looked for their API. PyQuery also comes highly recommended to me and I know it’s widely used, so it’s worth checking out too. Some people prefer BeautifulSoup but I’m confident at writing my own xPaths and so would prefer to stick with lxml for raw speed.
런처로 버즈런처로 쓰고 있는데 야후 Aviate초대 코드가 발송되어서 설치해봤다. Cover가 홈스크린쪽으로 콘텍스트에 따른 기능을 제공한다면 Aviate는 이를 홈스크린 영역에서 문제해결을 시도하는 느낌이다. 큰 인상을 주지는 않는다. 가장 큰 불편한 사항은 콜렉션에서 내가 원하는 앱을 추가하는 동선이다. Aviate가 추천하는 앱 등록이 우선시 되는 플로우가 다소 불편하다.
"We’re testing in-stream ad opportunities with an initial group of advertisers who have mobile apps and want to connect directly with audiences across Yahoo mobile apps and sites," a Yahoo spokesperson told ReadWrite in an email. "The purpose of these native ads is to help brands drive downloads of their mobile apps. These tests will begin to appear across all of our properties where in-stream ads run on iOS and Android devices.”
야후의 모바일웹/모바일앱의 타임라인에 앱다운로드형 광고 상품 테스트 중이라는 소식. 모바일앱 개발사와 친화적인 광고상품 개발을 목표로 하는 것 같다. 기사 말미에 과거 야후가 웹애플리케이션, 웹위젯 플랫폼을 구축하고 이를 유지하지 않고 종료한 히스토리를 예시를 들며 야후의 의지가 이번에는 어느정도 일지 의문을 가지고 있는 듯하다.
