Daily Reading List — June 10th

Open Source Tool Moves Spotify Playlists To Google Music Using Unofficial APIs – Dangit the money! You have to have a premium Spotify account to do this. Oh well…maybe an official mover is just around the corner?

5 Tools For Creating Your Own Infographics – I think they are trendy and all…but I still look at them a lot. Great way to get several ideas across in a very convenient format.

Homeschooling Growing Seven Times Faster than Public School Enrollment – Yeah, but doesn't it worry you that your kid may end up enjoying learning at home instead of hating school at school? LOL

Google Will Soon Launch Google Web Designer – Awsum. There's an app I'd like to build for work. I'm Android, and most of my target audience is iOS. This will make it easy to just do it as a webapp.

Chrome 11 Speech to Text

I was just checking out the speech to text feature in Chrome’s v11 beta, and I have to say, it’s pretty good. Even if you sound like you have a mouth full of marbles like I do, it does a decent job…at least a good enough job that you could speak long documents and go back to edit by hand later. I bought some software not too long ago to do this, and it was a lot more expensive than the “free” Google is charging.

Added bonus, this is part of HTML5…Google doesn’t own it, they are just taking advantage of it.

If you like this kind of stuff, it’s worth checking out. I am a little curious why Google hasn’t thrown a little microphone up onto their main search page so we can use it there. Seems like an obvious way to get people to use it immediately.
