#1449: More CES gadgets, Backblaze update, call for macOS speech recognition improvements, TidBITS memberships

Our CES coverage continues with Jeff Porten sharing the coolest devices and services from the Pepcom and ShowStoppers events. If you use or are thinking about switching to Backblaze, the service just got faster and more useful with the 6.0 update and B2 Storage integration. Do you rely on speech recognition? Nuance has discontinued Dragon Professional Individual for the Mac, and we have suggestions for what macOS speech recognition needs to provide a viable alternative. Finally, thanks to everyone who responded to our membership appeal last week—it made a huge difference! Notable Mac app releases this week include DEVONthink/DEVONnote 2.11.2, Pixelmator 3.8.1, KeyCue 9.2, Microsoft Office for Mac 16.21, DEVONagent 3.11.1, OmniFocus 3.2, and SEE Finance 2.0.8.
