Technology Gold Winners – Cheesecake Labs Top #10 Worldwide by Clutch

Clutch is one of the most respected authorities for assessment of software design and engineering companies. It’s a name you’ll surely have heard of more than once — perhaps you’ve even left a review for a supplier or collaborator on the Clutch website?

If so, you may also know that, each year, Clutch assesses and analyzes tens of thousands of mobile and web app development companies across the world. The result is a definite ranking of the best design and development partners based on unbiased, real-life client reviews, as well as other quantitative and qualitative measures.

Voice search in online shopping: what’s happening today and what can we expect in the future?

Picture the scene: it’s a hot afternoon in July 2001, you turn the knob to your front door and lug your groceries into the apartment. You speed over to the kitchen counter and dump the bags of laundry detergent, canned food, and bottled water packs in a disorderly fashion.
