Your phone may one day read your watch's Washington Post articles

Emily Steel writes about the Washington Post's innovations under new owner Jeff Bezos:

A visit to Cory Haik’s office offers a glimpse of what the future may bring for news outlets. The Washington Post’s executive producer and senior editor for digital news is in the midst of creating prototypes for technology such as Google Glass (right). Other innovations relate to publishing Washington Post content on platforms such as the Snapchat ephemeral messaging service and the Secret app on smartwatches.

Ms Haik holds out her wrist to show off the latest experiment. She scrolls through Washington Post articles on her Samsung smartwatch, selects a story and her iPhone – which is connected to her smartwatch – reads the text of the story aloud.
