NEWSLETTER: GOOGLE FIGHTS UNEMPLOYMENT & NINTENDO SWITCH HAS UPDATES

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“It’s not a faith in technology. It’s faith in people.” ~ Steve Jobs

YOU CAN NOW FIND YOUR CALLING WITH ‘GOOGLE FOR JOBS’

Powered by AI, Google search can now be used to find jobs. Launched on both computer and mobile platforms.

WHAT IS GOOGLE FOR JOBS?

We’re clearly not talking about a Steve Jobs memorial service by Google, but rather an effective way to search for jobs. From today, users will be able to search for jobs by directly typing in Google search. This allows users to search for jobs across all major portals without visiting different websites. The feature is currently available in English language but there are speculations about Google introducing more languages in future.

Mr. Nick Zakrasek, the head of this project at Google explained this as “Finding a job is like dating. Each person has a unique set of preferences and it only takes one person to fill this job.”

WHAT CHANGES DOES IT HOPE TO BRING?

With this feature, Google aims to provide a consolidated list of jobs that user might seek under a single heading. It also aims to eliminate duplicate job listings and any irrelevant jobs. All this has only be made possible through implementation of AI technology that tries to find the most relevant results. This service was originally announced at Google I/O developer conference. Since finding the right job might be one of the most important queries for Google, they surely didn’t waste much time materializing this idea.

HOW TO FIND JOBS ON GOOGLE?

Google search requires simple queries such as ‘Jobs Near Me’ or more specific keywords such as ‘Teaching Jobs In Manhattan’. The results displayed will be in a new widget where you can search for more options. This also includes various tools that help you fine tune the results. Once you click on your choice, it will show additional information such as Indeed and Glassdoor ratings for that employer.

A lot of experts and analysts have suggested Google’s new job search feature might devastate various job search portals in the longer run. But since Google uses these portals to derive information, it seems to be a symbiotic relationship that will only help streamline job search on internet.


NINTENDO SWITCH LATEST UPDATES ADD SEVERAL IMPROVEMENTS

THE STORY

Version 3.0 includes several bug fixes and updates. Makes finding friends and Joy Cons much easier.

WHAT CHANGES DOES IT BRING TO THE TABLE?

Launching today, Nintendo Switch owners will be able to download the latest firmware update for Switch’s operating system. Although Nintendo wants to make it sound like a big thing, but in reality, it only includes minor bug fixes and customization options. However, owners will now be able to easily find and add new friends on Switch homepage. Additionally, they will also be able to see 3DS and Wii U owners, and add them as friends.

IF NOTHING’S NEW, WHY ROLL OUT AN UPDATE?

As disappointing as it may sound to some, but this new update fixes a lot of issues that couldn’t be done during launch. Moreover, users can also use Switch Pro Controller using the charging cable, a simple feature that was missing in the original release. It also takes care of the insufficient storage problem by taking you directly to the uninstall screen, which is quite a convenient feature if you ask us.

Nintendo released this update with an official message saying “Nintendo constantly aims to improve the functionality of its systems and services in order to provide the easiest, most user-friendly experience possible,”
