Made a suggestion to Google News to provide a Traditional/Simplified Chinese conversion option so that a mainland Chinese can read the Hong Kong and Taiwan editions of Google News more conveniently.

"Platform Matters", sounds like Microsoft, Apple and Google...
 
Take an inside look at the #USNavy’s newest destroyer class (DDG 1000) and see why this #PlatformMatters: http://1.usa.gov/1tLjExw

A new mode, Medium, is added to PIE.

Full - This shows pronunciation to the fullest extent (e.g. even the silent g and h as in "light" are marked with a "silence mark").

Medium - This further omits diacritics for common words like "of" and common word parts like "-tion".

Lite (default) - This further omits silence marks for silent e's in the middle of words (e.g. "household").

Extra Lite - This further omits most schwa marks (e.g. the second and third a's in "Canada" will have no marks).

Is it phonetic? Not necessarily. For example, the ending "s" in "Settings" and "Apps" were marked in the same way.

Moby Pronunciator II does much better than CMU Dict in foreign names like Goethe, Camus and Ares. I found a good list of names for which I let Moby override CMU.

Recently PIE has incorporated certain smart stuff. In the Full and Less Full modes, "the", "to" and "into" can be marked with different pronunciations based on whether they're prevocalic... And I'm really stepping into the publishing business.

5 PIE modes now...

Full - This shows pronunciation to the fullest extent (e.g. even the silent g and h as in "light" are marked with a "silence mark").

Less Full - This further omits diacritics for common digraphs like ch, sh and ng (e.g. "chair").

Medium - This further omits diacritics for common words like "of" and common word parts like "-tion".

Lite (default) - This further omits silence marks for silent e's in the middle of words (e.g. "household").

Extra Lite - This further omits most schwa marks (e.g. the second and third a's in "Canada" will have no marks).

Think about what you're doing. Is it civilization-level stuff? For example, Google and Wikipedia are. Google's recent acquisition of Nest isn't.

Reading the news about Google's acquisition of Nest, I somehow recalled the movie Night at the Museum 2, where "Larry Daley" the protagonist started a company that sold inventions like "Glow-in-the-Dark Flashlight".

So happy to switch from the slow, memory-hogging hell of GNOME to the heaven of KDE.

It immediately rejuvenated my old machine just like a young and pretty wife rejuvenated Chen Ning Yang (search for him if you don't know about him).
