Why you should take more photos, not less

"And you know what you need to take more pictures really you do. I learned this the hard way believe it or not I've been going through my closets. This weekend I was trying to find some photos from the pre digital era. And all I could find was of a specific instance, one roll of black and white triax film. There was snapped during this specific place that I want to get pictures of. And Shame on me for not being, more proactive. So I should've taken more a lot more but I started thinking about it and realized look at how far we've come folks back then I'm the nine hundred and eighty s you had a choice of pro level thirty, five millimeter cameras which were hard to operate for most people disposable cardboard cameras had just begun appearing, but they were only used for special occasions places with great light. So for everyday life, most of us never bothered and compare that to now where everyone you know has a camera in their pocket and you can ask anyone to grab a shot of you with no issues they know what to do. And the smartphone cameras are so darn good. They can shoot in pretty much any kind of light and they have exif information built into the file. So when you look up stuff. You know exactly where you took it. You knew what time you knew what day I mean it's pretty amazing. So. For those of you listening today who might be in this position maybe ten years from now where you want to get pictures from twenty twenty some friendly. Where's the vice take more photos? You can never take enough and back them

Review: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2

"The Galaxy Z. or Fold to. The Galaxy said full to phone. So you may remember I had last week I had the Microsoft duo which was a dual screen phone. That on Hanjin, the middle unfolded. And, I thought this just the software didn't really use it very well. I loved the idea was beautiful harbour, very thin and light and. And everything but it just it was Kinda Janke I could make it fulltime phone. So I sent it back and I took the money. And then some and apply because this is a two thousand dollar phone this galaxy fold, which means you don't have to worry about it 'cause that's ridiculous. Ridiculous. Four Times more than you need to spend for phone. If you need a new phone, you want Andrew get get the Pixel for a or you know that'd be fine. The Google phone but I'm you know me I'm interested in technology and and what we're technologies going. So I thought well, I should try this. I can always return it. If you know what I don't think I'm returning it's pretty cool. So it is thicker and heavier than a regular phone because it you know it's got it folds. It's like a sandwich, a sandwich with nothing in between. But on the other hand, the F- The unlike the Microsoft phone Microsoft not a they don't want you to think of as one. It has screen when it's folded. So you can see notifications, you can actually use it. It's a little it's thinner than a regular phone would be. So it's kind of you know it's not a it's kind of an odd ball screens, really thin and tall compared to any phone that you might use but still. Totally usable can and you don't look like a silly person making a call. It's just it's Kinda. It's Kinda thin. Kind of kind of kind of a weird aspect ratio, but then it has a fingerprint reader face reader, which is good for these days of masks. But then. Let's say you you. You launch a program or something on the front face when you open up the phone, it goes to the open when it's so big. So big nice and spacious. Now. It's like a little tablet and yeah, it was a little concerned about the folding screening indefinitely see that where the fold is doesn't doesn't disappear completely. But it kind of disappears from your awareness. And I have to say. It seems very well made. I wasn't going to get this because I thought. Oh. This Janki. is going to be silly this can be really Janke. You know it's really fun taking a picture with this big screen is huge. Like a bigger with an IPAD which I've always mocked people for. Taking a picture with an IPAD. So this isn't quite so big boy. It's kind of Nice, because you can really see what's going on. You know the pictures it's really like it's like holding. Like holding a big print in your hand. So you can see what it's GonNa look like when it's printed. And of course, Samsung always made the best screens. These are really gorgeous screens and it has a lot of features that duo left out. It's the fastest. Processor out there for for for android the QUALCOMM snapdragon it's It's got wireless charging. It's not waterproof for does proof as definitely not break proof which should make you nervous because if you drop this two thousand, it's like holding a Faberge egg in your hand. If you drop it, you bought it. You know you know. I I went out and took pictures of the other day and I thought. I better, not drop this. This if this falls out of my hand, that's That's a lot of money. So I I I have to say I'm not going to recommend anybody by this crazy expensive two thousand dollars for a phone. But. And, it's not a much better phone than the four hundred or five hundred dollar phone. It's just that. I was curious about folding screens and now I have to report. I'm pleasantly surprised. Unpleasantly surprised it actually It actually is pretty surprisingly functional and it doesn't feel I thought that folding screens gotTA. Be Weird rights feel plastic ear something. Once you open it up you kind of forget it that it you know that it's a plastic or anything it's just a big screen. It's Kinda Nice to have such a big screen in your pocket. So I'm I'm I'm actually very pleased I might even keep it. I know I know I know. A lot of money and then Someday. Did iphone. Event Invitations. Go Out. No, no nobody. Got Him. Okay I. Often don't get him so I don't know. I can't tell but I don't think they went out which means. Well, it's not going to be this week for the IPHONE twelve events like probably probably not gonna be could be next week. Everybody kind of agrees is going to be in October. So it could be maybe October. What is that six? Week from Tuesday yeah. Or October thirteen week from Tuesday they'll nuts new iphones. What do you think they'll be two thousand no but I bet you be able to get him up there. Close. Yet You know you get the. iphone twelve pro Max. With All the available storage they're offering whatever that is five twelve or to fifty six. I think I think you might get it up to fifteen hundred bucks crazy. But people and these things these phones are not. You know their fragile. Which means you got to buy insurance. So add that to the cost of the really not meant to be used for more than a couple years. So. So I'm thinking. maybe we should just you know think of our phone is a phone stick with that. I'll do the. Do the crazy. Spend for weird stuff just to let you know. I don't think this folding phones going to be cheap ever because I think it's an expensive part I. think that's really the problem.

Layered security becomes critical as malware attacks rise

"From the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI to groups which the report labels a PT 28, a PT 29 breached the DNC servers through phishing attacks. A PT by the way, stands for advanced persistent threat. The first attack started in the summer of 2015. The group behind the attack was a PT 29, the attacker sent emails to more than 1000 different addresses. Attached to the DNC, and the messages contained malware attachments. They were posing as a normal file. It looked like an innocent file opening the file would install the malware on the target machine. The malware established an encrypted communication channel between the compromise systems and a PT 29. The malware also could escalate privileges, meaning the malware was ableto trick computers into giving the Attackers admin level access to the system so they could steal information, send it back to their own computers. Over this encrypted channel of communication, And because of this, they were largely undetected for a while. The second attack happened in 2016 that was a P 28. They sent out an e mail to a large number of people in the DNC. The email posed as an organization wide policy that would require users to reset their passwords, saying passwords have expired. You need to go and follow this link and reset your password. So they would go to a link and that led to a website that was made to look like it was an official DNC site. But in fact it was a fishing site so they would guide users to enter their usernames and their passwords and a new password, ostensibly so that they could reset their passwords. But in reality The hackers were gathering log in credentials and they were just ship shipping them straight to a B 28. The investigation into those attacks is still ongoing. But from what we know, it seems pretty certain the Attackers were Russian civilian and military intelligence services. So you have a group of Russian hackers targeting a United States political parties systems, and that's a big, scary thing. No matter what country you live in or what country No matter of which countries are involved. This kind of attack is a serious thing. We're one country is trying to influence the political outcome of another country. I don't care who you are. That's terrifying. The United States, by the way, has done not necessarily cyber crime kind of stuff like this. But us certainly has A long history of trying to influence other nations and their political proceedings. So I'm not saying the U. S is innocent of those kind of things either. But it is terrifying to look at the way that you can actually leverage human psychology and have a big impact like this. And honestly, I think that's the most troubling thing about phishing attacks because they don't have to be sophisticated. There's no need to craft a super tricky code. You don't have to sit there and secretly infiltrate a computer system Fishing works, not because of the technology technology facilitates it. It makes it easier to steal information. But fishing works because of the way we humans work. It works because we're fallible. We could be tricked. We could be influenced. It shows yet again that no matter how secure a system is, no matter what technology you have put in place, the system is really only as good as the people who have access to it. If you design the world's most secure bank vault door, and it has biometrics and voice activation and all this kind of stuff, where on Lee A select few are able to ever access it. And then I leave that door open while I dash off to go grab lunch. It doesn't do you any good. I have practiced very, very, very bad security protocol. Fishing works because we humans will often take these mental shortcuts and we won't use critical thinking, and it doesn't need to work every single time. In fact, depending upon the attack, it may need toe only work once, so if there are 10,000 employees of a company and you just need just one of them to click on a malicious attachment, that means all you need is a 10.1% success rate. It does not have to be great. It just has to work once. So it's no surprise. They're so many phishing attacks out in the wild. They get results and they don't need a lot of people to fall for them to be effective. That's all also why there's a lot of crappy ones out there because Why put in the effort to design something really, really good If you can still get hits with something that's crappy, that'll save you time and effort, so just quids in the crappy thing out, you won't get quality. Hits, but you'll still get hits to defeat phishing scams. We can institute different protocols and protections help weed out spam emails before they ever get to a user and obvious scans. That kind of thing we can blacklist certain. I P addresses, but ultimately we have to rely on people resisting those attempts to influence them and use a bit of critical thinking. Now I know I've talked a lot

Apple's Beta Effect

"Have my notes, the Beta effect to talk about, and what that is is with with with going from fourteen fourteen to fourteen one, which we believe made for iphone twelve, and that's why we're not getting that. We also believe fourteen to was made before the final version of fourteen point zero and so when you update to fourteen point to. You can't use the new blood oxygen sensor APP on the Apple Watch because it requires your phone to have the version to do something with the data and so my watch on seven point zero watch os before was on fourteen two I couldn't do the oxygen singer tests I. Guess You have to accept the health disclaimers and stuff upfront right? That's probably and it saves it there too like the background. Readings where they go. So I think should say it must save on your watch before like if you're out and about without your phone, it's back into some pretty sure and then he just sinks him up. Right. Yeah. Yeah. So but it's like ekg where you've gotta you've gotTa have the version match up to support it and we need when you like started in the health app on the phone does it Does have that like. Explain urine like disclaimers like it does when you do EKG yeah I don't recall I. Mean there is an I button for information on the readout on the watch explains thing like ninety and above is pretty good. You've got kind of hunt for it to find that I think it should be like under the readout not at an disclosure button but I think. The reason is they didn't get medical sign off on the sensor because they call a wellness not medical, right? Yeah. So they have to be very careful about how they present this information and we respect about spending Keno after the show like. is kind of silly at the moment you just get this number and then you're kind of left your and devices about what to do about it but they haven't go FDA approved the weather you know the necessary. Regulatory. Accreditation they need to be able to make more defined choices like they can with Iki the cagey where if it does detect potential arrhythmia a directly sound on the screen you know go talk to your doctor about it like they don't have that same flexibility with with the blackhawks jeans and that's why in the event they would say like we aren't doing studies about blood oxygen and Covid, nineteen. The Apple Watch has a blood oxygen sensor lie they never would linked together because. The purchase self. So the the APP on the watch is very nice I. Mean we saw the animation from the event on seeing it in person it's lovely. It's blue and red. It's like blood arteries. And it as fifteen seconds to run it to do an like an act of measurement and. As you near like say three seconds it becomes it begins to form a circle of completion and it's just so delightful. How how looks You do see the last. Measurement in the APP itself. So if you go just launch it, you'll see the last say passive measurement that picked up. So you might say like when our three hours ago. And That's neat. So it's more data than than just here do or read out. Your readings to be like. Consistent enough that you think it's good because I've seen some reviews like I've been getting some resource I get ninety, six, hundred lights will have the place. So I don't really trust it. Yeah. Well. Not How to. Read. Out. That was like you're below ninety. And then I had one that was like you're you're in the ninety range than I would maybe be concerned but I've seen the rains be from ninety three to one hundred back to back tends to be pretty consistent for me. Washington Post. They had an issue where they tried different watches and bands and just could not it to work the right way have had that experience. Sensor depends on like your skin and You know. The Senate doesn't work if you've got tattoos for instance so. Different reasons and stuff like transparent basically. So it's you know. No Job for it. And if there was an issue like despite being review watched, that's the point of this talk about the experience I would mention in trust me. I mean lot with the series five hours of disinterested and reviewing because of an issue that had which I read about instead. Of. The. Battery Life So. I've been on this one fine. Yeah.

Why a dedicated Zoom device makes sense

"You'll recall that earlier this week I had a lot of fun with that new Microsoft Eighty, five inch dedicated device for teams meetings. It's only twenty two thousand dollars little much for my budget I. Don't know about you but it's been a week for dedicated video meeting devices after that Microsoft announcement though I gotTa love, Amazon's answer which came later in the week, a dedicated ten inch unit for two hundred, fifty dollars the echo show ten, which lets you go through Alexa to connect to zoom skype or Alexa to Alexa direct calls two hundred and fifty dollars. Twenty two, thousand dollars I think I'll take the cheaper one Alex, thank you. I think these dedicated devices when they're priced, right make a lot of sense i. mean think of the kids were stuck at home taking school on their laptops. Now, they could have one more unit just displaying the teacher and lessons which would give their hands free for schoolwork and no taking on the laptop make sense for those of you who are taking meetings all day. The same issue applies isn't it hard to take notes when your laptop screen is filled with Speaker video windows. Plus this way you wouldn't have to worry Webcam placement after all his best to be at eye level which most people ignore and not have the Webcam looking up your Chin that requires putting the laptop atop of a bunch of books which gives you a better look, but it makes it really hard to type. So the savvy speaker or student would have to constantly move the books around that dedicated service on the desk would solve the issue living atop the. Books that could just stay there and not have to be moved around. So Amazon has the echo show ten, which will be out later this year it'll let you connect the Webcam to the TV via the hundred and twenty dollar fired TB Cube device. So so maybe it won't be watching eighty five inches how about fifty or sixty sounds pretty good p particularly when you consider that you can buy a good fifty inch these days for about three hundred dollars. Now, the Amazon solutions won't be available until later this year. But if you have a facebook portal video chat device, you can use the dedicated unit now to connect to zoom because the update started rolling out today. The portal started one, hundred, twenty, nine dollars, and they're available in three sizes at eight, inch, ten inch or fifteen point, six inch. The addition that connects the TV which is called. Portal. TV is not yet supported for the zoom calls meanwhile, that's not all folks next week on Wednesday Google holds its annual fall hardware product event where it's expected to unveil a new top of the line smartphone and updated streaming device and a new take on the nest home hub video display unit last year's nest. Didn't work with zoom or initially even with Google's meat though it does now but not zoom zooms coming later, and I know I can pretty much rest assured that the new Google video display unit we'll be working with zoom and hopefully working well

Amazon Luna cloud gaming service launches with support for iOS

"At the top of show that Amazon got around with Apple App Store with apples help. Let us explain we mentioned yesterday that Amazon launched a game streaming system called Luna and we have a few more details about how that works on. IOS as we told you yesterday. It comes through the browser Luna will be a progressive web app or pwa we've told you about those before it means you can install an icon off Luna on your home screen on iOS run it separately from the rest of your browser. You're not going to see your other tabs or anything. It'll act like its own app, and technically it could even work offline. But since I bought it online game streaming service, that's not really a feature that applies here. It can act pretty much like an app, but without being subject to Apple's App Store rules because it's really just a very robust website that you're saying. Going to your home screen in Apple's recent streaming game guidelines. Apple actually wrote quote. Of course, there is always the open internet and web browser apps to reach all users outside of the App Store. They pointed at that and they said you could just do that if you wanted to an Amazon said, okay, I guess we want to Luna head of engineering and Technology George sip elitists who works for Amazon package said that Amazon worked with Apple's Safari team to make sure quote some of the things that weren't there are there and that allowed us to do kind of get where we are today. So they not only cooperated with Apple Apple Safari team apparently like added some functionality for them with their Progressive web apps you'd think Apple was like try to force them into the App Store know they didn't Amazon also says they're working with apple on a game app and we'll ship one when quote we can come up with a good experience. So Amazon saying like those new guidelines about the native apps didn't really work with us yet, but we're still working we're talking dog. Apple we're not suing them like epic has The Verge is Sean Hollister. Also wonders when Google and video Microsoft might follow suit Google runs stadia in Chrome already Nvidia GeForce need webrtc version for the Chromebook and a Sean points out. Yes. There are issues to web apps like controller support questions lack of all the optimizations you can do on a native app. And of course cos if you're running a progressive web app, it has to run on webkit. You don't get a choice of browser, but Amazon was able to make it work by working with Apple.

The road to electric vehicles with low sticker prices

"About five percent of vehicles being purchased each month or electric and the United States I think it's only around two percent but we're getting very close to the tipping point where the actual purchase price. Without any government incentives or subsidies will be cheaper for an electric vehicle. A gas engine. Tesla. had. Their much over hyped battery day recently where they talk about the things that they are planning and how they're going to get the cost down and one of the things that was headlined is that a five thousand dollar electric vehicle will be available in about three years time but Tesla. You believe it when you see it, but generally I must tends to over promise but not under deliver over promise on timeline. But the trend line is clear that the cost of batteries down eighty, five percent in ten years and the price curve keeps bending all around the world. And so once you have an electric vehicle, I can tell you it's much much much more fun to drive than a gas engine vehicle, the range getting better and better the new. Tesla. An model goes five hundred miles on a charge or will go five hundred miles on a charge. Yes. That's early next year right now the best they have is four hundred miles to charge, and so the range anxiety people have had will go away. Although the focus has been on. Mostly, what Tesla's dine in what others are chasing behind them with passenger vehicles? The big market place. In the big effect on people's wallets going to be with businesses that are going to electrify their entire fleets. You're going to see that Amazon in particular. is going to be way out front.

To Electric, which is going to reduce the cost of distribution in the United States because the electric vehicles are so much cheaper to run. THAN THE GAS ENGINE ONES And this is an important thing for our vehicle market with GM. Ford and Chrysler. They've gotta get moving with us because foreign automakers are pouring tens of billions of dollars each. Into electrifying their fleets because they know that's where everything's going.

Some, people see as the new Moore's law and it might explain why Invidia is doing what it's doing quoting Chris Mims in the Wall Street Journal who I believe has actually coined the term quote as chipmakers have reached the limits of atomic scale circuitry and the physics of electrons Moore's law has slowed and some say it's over but a different law potentially, no less consequential computing's next half century has arisen. I call it wings law after INVIDIA Chief Executive and Co founder Jensen Wang it describes how the silicon chips that power artificial intelligence more than double in performance. Every two years while the increase can be attributed to both hardware and software it. Steady progress makes it a unique enabler of everything from autonomous cars, trucks, and ships to the face voice and recognition in our personal gadgets between November twenty twelve and may performance of nvidia chips increased three hundred and seventeen times for an important class of a calculation says Bill Daley chief scientists and Senior Vice President of research at Nvidia on average in other words, the performance of these chips more than doubled every year a rate of progress that makes Moore's law pale in comparison and quote. And then also from the Journal, a portrait of Jensen Wang and his founding and stewardship of Invidia as the company has. Just exploded in all sorts of ways. In videos market value has soared to three hundred and nineteen point, eight billion dollars surpassing Intel's valuation of two hundred and fourteen point five, billion dollars even though INVIDIA had ten point nine, two, billion in annual sales in its latest fiscal year compared with seventy one, point nine, seven, billion for Intel. Videos bet on some of the hottest fields, INTECH video gaming and artificial intelligence have fueled investor enthusiasm. While Intel has stumbled with some of its most advanced chips, it's all a long way from nineteen ninety-three when Mr Huang. Dreamed up in video on his thirtieth birthday at a Denny's in San Jose California with two like minded engineers they bet on a future where consumers demanded better computer graphics, which would require specialized high performance hardware that wasn't available at the time and

California wants to ban gas-powered cars, but is the auto industry ready to go all electric?

"The trump administration is not pursuing climate-friendly Policies California is Governor Gavin. NEWSOM this week pledged to ban all sales of new gasoline powered vehicles in the state by twenty thirty, five California consumes a lot of gas and would be the first state in the country to enact this kind of blanket ban.

Take to the. Age of forty five doors and liftgate dump you onto Mohali Blah. There's something to this California is the largest consumer of motor gasoline in the nation banning the sale of gas powered cars starting twenty, thirty, five cents a message to an auto industry that's been sluggish on change says Ethan L. Kind Director of the climate program at UC Berkeley. Look if you want to do business in a major market, like California, fifteen years you better get going but industry insiders say the ban accelerate the inevitable sam for any with auto forecast solutions. Industry believes that the next big thing is vs the problem is the pricing on visas still expensive it's still takes a while to. Charge charging him structure is building, but it's still not everywhere we needed to be and even with the ban on purchases, it's going to take a long time to get all those gas powered cars off California's roads says Georgia with Sony head of the Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research cars have two three lives. You buy a new car then you sell it maybe five years later, and if it's a good car might through two or three different cycles overeat sales, right. But as the state continues to grapple with climate change, many Californians feel time is of the essence of Jasmine guards for marketplace.

As a result, they say, moon crews will require thick walled shelters for protection. The fighting's air based on radiation measurements taken by Chinese lunar lander. Which has been operating on the far side of the moon for 1.5 years. NASA says it's taking the necessary safety precautions as it works to put astronauts back on the moon by 2024.
