An example of old meets new: Merriam-Webster has developed an app for the Apple Watch. For more than 150 years, Merriam-Webster has been keeping up with innovations in the dictionary business. This interesting news came from Mass Live in their article, “Merriam-Webster dictionary app available for Apple Watch.”

App users can also enjoy a Word of the Day feature with a nod to new technology by having a computerized voice definition read. The app is free, but of course the Apple Watch isn’t.

It is important to remember that not all technology is created equal. It is important to choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands.
