Howdy, happy Tuesday, AI family! 🐶

I'm sitting by the window writing today's newsletter, and it's pouring outside. The sound of the rain is pretty relaxing, and it feels like the perfect setting to share the latest updates with you.

🧵Here are some useful AI updates and tools I gathered today:

Google’s AI-generated answers have gained a lot of negative mainstream media coverage as people have been sharing numerous examples of AI Overview fails on social media.

Just look at all the coverage:

A few examples of Google’s AI Overviews:

  • Google said you should eat at least one small rock a day

  • Google suggested using non-toxic glue to give pizza sauce more tackiness. (This advice apparently was traced back to an 11-year-old Reddit comment.)

Google AI Overviews and Search have severe, fundamental issues. Trust in Google Search is eroding – even if Alphabet is making billions of dollars every quarter.

As that trust erodes, people may start searching elsewhere, which will slowly trickle down and hurt Google’s revenue.


The ball-park isn’t the only place to look for home runs. Best Buy has a proven record of placing early bets on home-tech products that go on to dominate the market.

  • Ring - acquired by Amazon for $1.2B

  • Nest - acquired by Google for $3.2B

Early investors in these companies are sitting on some serious returns, but for the rest of us, there's still a chance to get in on the action with RYSE.

History repeats itself, and RYSE's launch in +100 Best Buys points to their company being the next home run.

Their Smart Shade tech is poised to dominate an industry growing at 50% annually, and there's still time to invest in their $1.50/share public offering.

Canva is launching a redesigned platform with new AI features and tools for professional teams and workspaces. The company has introduced Canva Enterprise, a specialized tier offering more control over collaboration, brand management, and security for larger organizations.

New features include AI style matching for brands, customizable folder displays, and the ability to "star" designs and templates for easier access. Canva Docs now has a suggestion mode for editors and colorful highlight blocks for text emphasis. New "Magic Studio" AI tools include:

  • Automatic clip highlighting.

  • Background noise reduction for video editing.

  • A text-to-graphic image generator.

Why does it matter? 

Canva aims to reduce organizational complexity and "app sprawl" by offering a comprehensive creative platform. This update addresses the growing need for extensive, user-friendly solutions that can replace multiple design, AI, and workflow apps.
