  • Smart speakers sales increase fast

    Considering the recent "surprise" data that all major manufacturers freely sell and share all your recordings it is really nice trend.

  • Question  Is screen-based media use associated with differences in the structural integrity of brain white matter tracts that support language and literacy skills in preschool-aged children?

    Findings  In this cross-sectional study of 47 healthy prekindergarten children, screen use greater than that recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines was associated with (1) lower measures of microstructural organization and myelination of brain white matter tracts that support language and emergent literacy skills and (2) corresponding cognitive assessments.

  • “The meteoric rise of internet-based activities cannot be understated: between social media, texting, gaming, and surfing the web, the average high school senior spent six hours a day online in 2016 — double the time from a decade earlier. Eighth graders (4 hours a day) and tenth graders (5 hours a day) didn’t lag far behind,” the report finds.

    In the early 1990s, a third of 10th graders read the daily newspaper; that number had dropped to just 2% by 2016. What’s more, back in the late 1970s, 60% of 12th graders read a book or magazine almost daily, but just 16% had the same reading habits in 2016.

    The study had some other interesting findings. Teen viewership of the boob tube — whether standard TV fare or movies — has plunged as well. “Twenty-two percent of eighth graders reported watching five or more hours of TV a day in the 90s; only 13 percent watched an equivalent amount by 2016.”

    Jean M. Twenge, the study’s lead author, said the findings are odd since reading is now so simple. No more schlepping to the library or the book store, just click a link and boom, you’ve got a book to read.

    Lot of people are home, shaking from fear and trying to forget nasty reality in games.

    But if they don't stop playing games and won't start real fight of their life - it'll all end bad.

  • “I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness…

    The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance”

    Carl Sagan, 1995

  • While the television industry as a whole saw a 20 percent increase last week compared to the month prior, HBO Now saw the highest usage on its platform since summer. The percentage of people binge viewing series has increased 65 percent, while movie watching is up 70 percent on HBO Now.

    Amazon’s other streaming platform, Twitch, has seen a 31 percent growth in viewership, with total amount of hours watched jumping from 33 million on March 8th to 43 million on March 22nd.

    It is bad. More people dumbing down themselves.
