But before all of that we bring you some exciting news from Cyber-Duck as we have been selected as the dedicated digital agency for two new web ventures. At the moment we cannot say too much about either project but one of them is an international PLC corporation which will enjoy Cyber-Duck's unique UX consultancy, UCD (User Centred Design) production for Adaptive Web Design and SaaS technology services. Needless to say, the ducks can’t wait to start work on both projects and provide you with more news.
Google have also had some exciting announcements and firstly we wanted to talk about their new augmented reality glasses dubbed Google glasses. The new concept allows you to go about your everyday life with the help of 14 various Google services including information on the weather, location and diary appointments, enabling you to capture and share information real-time, without a PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone.
At the moment the idea is still in the design phase, as the architects behind the product seek feedback from potential users and as such a release date for the product or an estimated cost has not been published, but this is surely innovation at its greatest and definitely a product to look out for in the future.
Google have also announced updates to their search algorithm which could potentially affect the ranking of your website. Overall there were 50 changes which include turning off a classifier related to anchor text, interpreting better use of anchor text, improvements to image search results which promote the use of reasonably sized images and the indexing of several extra punctuation marks and symbols. Cyber-Duck will be advising our clients on any changes that may affect their rankings.
Finally, we leave you with a variety of our favourite April fools jokes from around the web to celebrate the 1st April last weekend.
