Alphabet’s Verily scores FDA clearance for its ECG monitor – TechCrunch

Big week for Google wearable news — which, honestly, I not a phrase I expected to write in 2019. But a day after the company announced an agreement to purchase Fossil’s wearable technology for $40 million, Alphabet-owned research group Verily just scored FDA clearance for its electrocardiogram (ECG) technology. The clearance pertains specifically to the company’s Study Watch. The device, which was announced back in 2017, shouldn’t be confused with the company’s more consumer-facing Wear OS efforts. Instead, the product

It’s not an outlandish idea: As first reported in Wareable, Fossil Group executive vice president and chief digital officer Greg McKelvey says the $40 million deal will result in the launch

Netflix hits 139 million subs, but fears YouTube and Fortnite

If you get the feeling that everyone you know has a Netflix subscription, there’s a good chance you’re right – Netflix just announced that it has 139 million paying subscribers around the world.  That number doesn’t take into consideration all the folks who use Netflix either through a shared account or are on a free trial account – which likely explains why that number isn’t even higher – but that means there are more people paying for Netflix than there

Trump’s media bias poll might be the most biased thing I’ve read in 2019

Trump's media bias poll might be the most biased thing I've read in 2019

President Trump continues to fire shots at the press, claiming biased coverage, misrepresented facts, and sometimes entirely made-up stories.

The line of questioning would also suggest that this is less a poll and more an attempt to ignite Trump’s base in
