Utter! Gets Huge Update To 3.0.9, Gains Moto X Style Wake-Up Command, Google Now, Spotify, All Access Integration, and Much More

Utter! isn't the quiet kid in the back of class who only answers a question when asked, pointing out the answer in a textbook like Google Now, nor is it the class clown who dishes out snarky answers whenever he or she doesn't like the way a teacher asks a question, like Siri. Utter! is the student that sits in the front seat and always raises their hand first, the one that has the answer for every question, no matter how it's phrased or what it's about.

Feedly Pro Is Now Live For Everyone, Subscriptions Cost $5 A Month, $45 A Year

Feedly doesn't want to go the way of Google Reader, so it is now rolling out a monthly subscription model to everyone in hopes of keeping the lights on. We've known about this for a while now, as the company offered 5,000 lifetime subscriptions for $99 earlier this month. They promptly sold out, providing them with $500,000 of cash to help get things off the ground. Early backers, and those who choose to subscribe now, get access to the first batch of pro features, such as the ability to search through articles and quick one-click integration with both Evernote and Pocket.

You can read about the announced features and download the APK here, if you haven't yet.

Chrome For Android Beta 30 Has One More Trick Up Its Sleeve: An Easy Double-Tap Zoom Gesture

If you're in the habit of using the fancy-pants Chrome Beta to get access to the newest features for your browser of choice, try this handy zoom gesture out. On any desktop page, double-tap anywhere, and on the second tap keep your finger on the screen. Then slide your finger up and down for a quick and easy zoom.

Google Search Word Definitions Updated With Word Origins And Usage Over Time

Words are awesome. For writers they're meat and drink, bread and butter, and everything else that goes on the dinner table. But even writers run into words we've never seen before, and at times like that Google Search is an awesome tool for expanding my vocabulary. Google Search just got a little better, because the definition cards have been updated to include word origins and their usage over time.

2013-08-22 21.51.28 2013-08-22 22.11.58

The origins aren't just a simple footnote, either, such as "Germanic" or "Latin." No, we're talking full trees of information, with base words, root words, prefixes, suffixes, alternate forms, transliterations, and all kinds of other goodies.
