Listen: Google, Time Warner and Official discussed on All About Android
"Goal. No, no. I'm happy pot that I disappointed at myself that I didn't. But I mean, is, is the goal there then to crack down on those kinds of places or just random people that have the app. The identify illegal stream. Then what happens? Right. What's the night up? And they have GPS location, so they know it's, you know, Bob's pub and what they can. I mean, then they work with the provider and remember when Time Warner was sending torrent letters people. Yeah. Yeah. Saying, we know you're renting and don't. That's where thing like they could you know that? I mean, I, it gives them options to identify who's doing it, but you know, they're saying it costs them more than one hundred fifty million euros in losses for these streams. I don't know, but that's a good point. I don't know what it then. Does it says, yeah, I don't know. It doesn't actually say what it does with this data. So that's weird. We'll find out. Yeah, I don't know what, what are you guys saying flow? When do you think even even with a an opt in this is cool. Not. Yeah, it's opt. Yeah. I mean, that's I guess the big question is even when it's in like there, it doesn't just affect them right. Like at sampling audio from anyone that happens to be there. They're saying that, you know, nobody's listening to these things, but it's just it's. Just to clarify it is the streaming app of the service. So it's the app that is streaming the game. And so there are denting whether or not you have legal or illegal access to it. You can stream the game. If you have a VPN that spoofing it or you don't, you're not paying like it's, it's, it's, it's it's listening to the audio on the app itself. It's like screaming, I couldn't figure that out. I couldn't figure if it was just listening to the to the room for stream of some sort. That was a. Wouldn't they know the data is coming? Oh, I guess because maybe. Okay. So if you're using a VPN and you're saying, I'm in another region and I'm spoofing it and I'm streaming it because now the blackout works or whatnot, but they know you're in the region where it should be blacked out, boom, they know it's you and that's where you are, and then they can follow up charge you or something like that. I don't know if you're using VPN that stream is going to hit you with a little bit of lag or latency that they could more shutdown potentially determine a well if it's lagged that much, maybe that's not official. Yeah. I, I guess we don't know exactly what's going on here, but it's definitely indicative of where we are right now. The fact that we all walk around with computer computers in our pockets that are amazing spying machines basically. Raina we'll get that into the arena. Stay tuned. I just feel like it's the World Cup. Just let us watch it. Why does it have to be so dang hard because you just wanna get you wanna monetize things to make money for your brands. You're. We're in a world where brands cannot tweet the word Super Bowl or Olympics because Olympics will charge for that. We'll we'll want they own that term. You can't use the hashtag like this is the direction is going the combination of of monetization and copyright and brands. People trying to leverage off other people and brands putting their foot that and using technology to enforce these ridiculous things that limit the way we use talk about things. Airy, not a couple of before we get to the arena flow. You got the first one, I one, this one's from Benjamin Benjamin says, I've been a listener for years, and I'm hoping to tap into yours or any of your past guests connections with Google and especially the maps team. So anybody works Google, you're listening. Here's my beef with maps. Maps gives a great feature that lets add stops and make a route, but here's the catch. Google only lets you put in nine stops. This is brutal and I'm losses to I go has kept this fantastic option so limited. Can any of you possibly pass this onto someone at Google who could help? There's a three year old thread about this very topic on Google's owned forums and people there have been pretty much given up hope. I've included the link to that third below. Thanks for the show and continue entertainment. Many laughs over the years. Yeah. I mean people Google for me. Yeah. Okay, good. There. The. Get in touch with her. Yeah. First of all, I don't have the. Second of all, it is a frustrating thing. And I say this is a person who used to meticulously plan out her her trips post college. All of my international trips, I would plan everything was a walking tour because it's all flow. Could Ford was walking in the bus, and so that's really came in handy. Google maps really came in handy. It is a little frustrating though may be able to do nine stops. I did look through the little cool maps and earth help forum link that was sent over. It's really, they're really, it's really just a long page of people complaining. Before, which makes little sense. Somebody offered the link to map dot me which offers way points for Google maps and allows you to get directions for a route with unlimited destinations on the way even on mobile. So if you are okay with kind of third party way of doing it, that's that's the suggestion in the forums. Otherwise, you know, I guess it's only nine stops for you wherever you're going. Yeah, I guess so that I, I've never once pushed up against the nine stop limit, but everybody has a different adventure. I was aware of this. I've heard that I forgot the. I was looking at some sort of like going someone and set up a Google maps of a location or something like that. And they're like because of the nine stop limit. Here's three maps, you know, like it's weird. Random. Yeah. Well, anyone on the maps team because I know you all listen to this on a weekly basis. Think about it. Maybe this is the first time you've heard this, but it's time for you to change this once. All right. Mike k. rights into say, I just wanted to say that on the last show, someone said YouTube music works with Android auto. We showed the the photo of it. Yeah, I was in says, this is somewhat misleading. There is no official YouTube music app. It just shows what is currently playing. You can skip to the next track. If you wanna look for new songs, your playlists, cetera, that sort of stuff you have to use the phone, which is dangerous while driving. I just wanna let you guys knows. People don't get their hopes up. This is one of the main reasons. I can't leave Google play music because I drive a lot for work. It's a really good point. You wanna be able to well how how deep do we want those interfaces to go when it comes commands? Yeah, and that's part of Android, auto, curious, no fats integrator, you need full voice commands and you need the ability for it. Wanna listen to you when you're an Android auto. Okay. When do you have any experience and Android auto? This is this is like an angle of Android that I feel completely clueless on because I just don't have a head unit. Kind of the same thing they're expensive. And so usually what we do is just use the app like my my husband has just like the little visor mountain just uses the mobile version. So no. Is. Yeah. Cheaper. I need to get in the habit of that doesn't work in the Android auto than I just want us in the car because I just can't. It's already hard sometimes use Android auto, quite frankly, on the phone on the five inch pixel. To drive people. We need like we need like a little clip on mechanism like this Foti that beams directions to my head. I don't have to look at any heads up display. You know. Need to wear Google glass. And then when you're driving feel like that's still true, distracting. I don't want any screen in front of me to be screened less. I'll bet. I remember when I went to Google to get fitted for my Google glass, they got it in that first wave and then getting in my car wearing Google glass to drive home and getting my notifications up like. Like. The future veered off the road."
