"One of the things that have changed is Abbott Labs came up with a new kind of test. Is the faster test. You get the results in about 15 minutes. What is also less selective and it has a higher number of false positives. Ohio started using that test. By the million At the beginning of October, about 250,000 of them had arrived by the end of September and 4.5 million of them in just the last month. So the problem is, if you look that if you go to the Ohio State website, and you look at the number of Positive cases that they have for day you'll notice something very interesting. It was declining, declining, declining until the end of September. And then what happened? They switched over to the new test. And they've been dramatically increasing the number of tests because these are a lot cheaper there like five bucks a test. We're now up to about 60,000 tests today and at the positivity rates of almost 9%. Well before they started using the new test. The positivity rate was about 3%. Now it's almost 9%. So in other words, the number of positive cases is tripled as a percentage of the number of tests, But they've also dramatically increased the number of deaths almost double now since since they started in the new test so that we start testing With a In huge numbers of asymptomatic people with the test that has more false positives. Guess what happens so, boy, you start making lots of cases. And you know, it's one of those things. It's nice to have a fast test, You know, Let's take for instance, You have a job where you work where you need to test it like they work with older folk, OK, and so you're on your way to work. You need to take a fast, make sure you didn't get exposed. All right. You take the first we'll let the thing is is if you get a positive there, really? You should go get another test. To be sure. The fast test is less reliable, but at least you know, Okay, I'm driving to work that day. I came positive. I'd better not go to work today. I'm going to call and let them know I'm getting the more careful tests. There's nothing like I don't have anything against the faster test. I think. It's handy to have, but you shouldn't be reporting it to the state as a positive until you've confirmed that the positive, But that isn't really the state says that they report all those positive. So let me ask you this then with a large number of false positives. Would there also be a large number of false negatives? Or is it not work that way? We'll know it. That's a very good comment, and it doesn't exactly work that way. But you're right. There would be some false negative. But when you think about it, making negatives are only important when you've got actual cases and the prevalence in other words, the number of people that actually have it is pretty low and I Oh, it's down to one or 2% or something like that. So we're just testing people randomly. You're only going to find one or 2% that actually really have had it in the past. And then if you were to a 1% of those are false. Negative. Do you really care that you missed that person if they had it in the past? No, It's not a big issue. False negative matter when you're in the middle of an actual, really strong epidemic, and you're trying to find the cases. You definitely don't want false negative then because you don't want people going around spreading it, you have it. But the number of people who actually have it were actually contagious is very small attraction of the population. So frost negatives are less important than because there's more fraction anyway. Alright, your thoughts on the antibodies test. We saw that Kroger is going to be carrying these unless they already are not even sure exactly. But I know that these air getting ready to hit the market if they haven't already do you have that all that's the same, So this test is for antibodies as well. It would. It would detect the presence of anybody's all And another one is going to return people who have had it in the past. It's also going to report people who actually do have it. Oh, boy. Wow. And it's also going to report false positives in other little detect other reactions. You know, if you have the flu, it'll detect that If you have a bad cold it can detect and my thing it does every time but it's a higher percentage of the time. So we shouldn't be a bit surprised since they started using the new test a month just over a month ago that the number of the percent positivity rate has tripled. Now, you might say, Well, if the positivity rate is crippled, and we've Dramatically increased the number of testings and those were real cases. We would expect to see the number of hospitalizations tripling. We would expect the number of deaths tripling. Well, guess what deaths are continuing the fade away. Hospitalizations were saying about steady and you have to also realize about the hospitalizations number. Guess what tests they use when they're admitting somebody in the hospital, so those people that were there with coded more than percent necessarily, people. That actually have it Now I'm not saying that they aren't real cases. There are real cases in the hospital, but they're very they're small number of reports in the media would make you think of some big number, but it's not. It's a small percentage. This is un riel that it detects if you've had it. And then if you currently do have it and then it also you're saying in some cases detects the flu as well. Regular Not collected enough. Yeah, Yeah. Wow. This is makes Makes.

This forty five cycles is the same in the picture that I've posted in the show notes we'll do it again of the Thermo Test, which also says forty five cycles. So you're a lab technician, you're doing thousands of tests a day you get the assay you look at the instructions is a computer panel is like a little Microsoft Windows Program Click, Click Click how many counts forty, five cliques good I'm done. This is a fucking dial. They can turn it up, turn it down whenever they want just by sending a new count level to all the laboratories. They you get a vaccine, they will immediately dial it down to the thirty five or below, and then you're cases go away. They're dialing up on us and they have a reason to they have a reason. Remember the insider who works at Abbott Labs Dude named Ben who said they're coming out with a test The. Testing laboratories are selling the I'm sorry, not the test, the the APP they're selling the APP. So they're connecting, you get a test with. These you put the results of that into your APP, which is your passport. And your passport then allows you to get into places and when you're test expires, you have to go back and get a new.

"Of the week were loaded from the health alternative of the week followed by the health outrage of the week then we've got a product recall of the week and will finish next hour with the health minister the weekend a lot of news in between that we're going to begin this hour in the discussion of what I sort of preview the last hour and I hope you were with us last hour and if you missed last hour you can always go back and listen to it on the podcast library which will be available to you as of this coming Wednesday simply log on to my website Wednesday if you missed the first hour of the

case you're out of town you miss the show some weekend you sleep in whatever it may be you always be able to get it on the podcast library on my website Dr Bob dot com all right we're gonna begin this hour in a discussion of something it's kind of troubling because as you well know because you'll see the same television information and probably hear the same thing that I'm hearing about many of these laboratories and I've used many these laboratories is blood laboratories for years quest labs Abbott labs all these different laboratories which have been in business a long time they're very good at what they do and they're working very very hard to come up with tests you know point of care tests instant test an accurate test to be able to diagnose corona virus as quickly as possible that's the idea that's the goal and as accurately as possible and certainly if you log on and you hear these news conferences that go on each and every day almost you're learning about it as well well the White House people in the White House and our government are being tested on a regular basis White House five minute corona virus test from Abbott labs misses the mark or the accuracy in about half of the cases that's pretty scary fifty percent that's like flipping a coin heads or tails doubts about abit test the blood tests to try to diagnose corona virus touted by the current administration after the virus gets inside the west wing and you're probably reading about this new hearing about this right now the rapid corona virus test from Abbott all yeah there was a lot of hope involved in this a lot of wishing we're all wanting a quick an ATA act accurate test to be able to measure people to see if they are positive so that those among us who are the weaker of the modest specially the aged people people with concomitant health problems that are more susceptible to serious consequences of coming down with a corona virus even though the majority of US ninety eight to ninety eight percent of us will either have no symptoms with corona virus it'll just work through our body we won't even know what's inside of us my body's immune system just handles it not even a contest some people get mild symptoms some people get moderate symptoms most people do not go to the hospital we all will eventually be exposed to this virus we will it's just a matter of when not if so don't fear and just do everything you can to stay healthy and that we are of course figuring out of the society how to protect those people who are at risk of more serious consequences but this particular test with a lot of hope behind it Abbott labs and there again working hard I think highly of eleven Abbott labs but there's still some flaws to work out there is there are many laboratory tests at a hundred percent accurate even blood tests that you get a lot there's a tale the possibility that that test is going to be wrong something's gonna go wrong or some is going to be mixed up something's gonna be un calibrated perhaps and the rapid corona virus tests being used to diagnose people at the White House including president trump's valet and vice president Michael pence's press secretary may miss up to half of all positive cases a new study which suggests meaning more people in the trump administration the inner circle may have the virus but are unaware Abbott laboratories new ID now test that's the test that is hailed as the test that is gonna save everybody the five minute ID now test and a negative test but in thirteen minutes so you can they say at Abbott labs within five minutes you'll know that you have a positive test you have coronavirus but it'll take thirteen to tell you that it's a negative but researchers from New York University found that the ID now test missed one third of corona virus samples stored in vials compared to another commonly used testing kit what's more among samples that were taken using a dry nasal swab you seen this in these drive ups four people are being traumatized the test from the Illinois based company Mrs about forty eight percent of positive results it comes on the heels of at least a dozen White House staff members testing positive for the corona virus including vice president trump's press secretary Katie Miller and one of president Donald trump's valets and raises questions about how many cases of Abbott's tests have actually been missed Abbas test received emergency use authorization by the US food drug administration in last month late last month many of you may know this regardless of the method of collection and sample type Abbott ID now that's the test Abbott's ID now Colbert nineteen missed a third of the samples detected positive by using swabs in viral transport media and over forty eight percent when using the dry nasal swabs in a statement the Abbott said the New York University researchers didn't use the test correctly I mean what are you expecting a laboratory that makes this test that will profit by this test even though that you don't every business is in business to be profitable at Abbott is no different I think very highly of them but of course once they found out the results where about half the cases were in doubt there come back was that the the people who are taking the test didn't know how to obtain the test that was the problem allegedly producing false negatives at center so far and it has distributed more than one point eight million of the ID now test self there we have all right we're going to introduce you to a special guest when we come back from this break I suggest you have something to write with and right on import information will be right back people living in Asian countries eat.

"Ninety right hi today Abbott labs announced that it is developed an antibody test that will determine if someone has been previously infected with the corona virus and potentially developed immunity it's a great test the company's AZ's test could be available to screen up to twenty million people in a matter of weeks that is it wasn't a secret plan that got leaked out it was I was asked my opinion by some of my general managers to run a large departments but as mayor of laws you said as I think mayor Cantrell said in in New Orleans it's difficult to imagine us getting together in the thousands anytime soon so I think we should be prepared for that this year everyone should recognize that those big events should be one of the last things that we bring back on line that's the blocks you know and mayor Garcetti of Los Angeles there and of course of the president but that's what when you see the study coming out about subways if you're not going to have massive sporting events now how could it because you believe and and the thing is you're doing that based on the fact that you believe that a ton of people have not been infected and don't have antibodies that's why the antibody test is so important that's why played all of those they all relate in some way right because if you're going to say and and as we know Garcetti said maybe not till twenty twenty one which fits what we said the other day are twelve to eighteen months before everybody really gets you know vaccinated and that's on last now that Abbott labs according the president's producing it if we can do twenty million antibody test a month we'll know in the next couple of months we should know and be able to do a sample as and to project out how many Americans actually have the antibodies and therefore do we have heard immunity yeah and the question beyond that as yet if you don't keep the subway opened in New York what do you do how to people get in I don't know that's what I meant by but how do you how do you say we can't have twenty thousand people it matters that are going for game time yet we put it if you don't believe that you have heard immunity right yet put five billion people on the subway right and say it's all clear and if you say it's all clear how many people are going to take the subways by the way if that's the case I may invest in uber well you know you think about that because of the you know the taxes in New York I don't know it's over Brian may be able to tell us is over in New York at I'm not sure if they're in New York at one point they were not I'm not sure if they are not but because there was some resistance by the fact that some to let us know I don't I don't company I know they made it to other parts of New York right when I whenever I go back to right both love used it you have to look at right they talk in New York City right right right right but when I was in buffalo that they resist they were one of the look the last to actually jump on board with that they were fighting that tooth and nail they did not want the city didn't want to do it right right but I mean how do you move that many people around the fact of matter is there's not enough real estate is not of land in New York now first look for social distancing there just isn't this is why it died it's the hot spots let let me ask you this does that mean that companies will look at this and and and say you know we need to be in an area where it's use your for people to get transportation you know looking at long term plans right long term planning of what we want to do how long will this stay and and this is the great unknown we have a ton of questions and frankly no one answers because each individual person in the United States each company owner each investor each you know each person will come to their own conclusion when this is all over about how to make their lives better in case something like this happens again right or comes down the line again and that's it for example will let you know what will it will involve you mean you you had a great question we were talking about the source story from fox news that the that the Wuhan virus originated not in the fish market but in that lab but not as a bio weapon but at as an offshoot of research into the the I guess they did the Chinese wanting to be as good as shall be in of how to cure viruses are hard to detect viruses as United States that's what the story swelled right because yeah and and and and you had it was I was at my Pompey was being interviewed and they you know they they're looking into all possibilities but you look at the the the fact that there is a lab that is just a few miles from one of the major wet markets and you ask the question okay not that it would be deliberate but a worker there by looking into a sars right look just assume they were it and by the way I'm not trying to give kind of the benefit of the doubt we're looking at all possibilities I don't trust China China at all on any of their information but the bot we we go by what we know now the possibilities of what may have happened because did it come from a I guess our question was my question was in the pre show meeting is it possible they were looking at the stars mutation and that's what became the coveted nineteen the coronavirus a cart crosses Gilbert nineteen and it was late because you have a worker at that lab that was working on that mutation and it it leaked could be a simple link or was it deliberate or again I mean there are handy question and and the thing is I mean there's been a couple of stories out by medical you know the medical associations looking at the virus and saying it wasn't manufactured right that this that this R. this involved right and but that's the whole point because it's not whether it was crazy because you don't have to use the word originated right is that where it mutated involved at that particular point could be could this could cause this coronavirus be a mutation that was my question could it be a mutation of a different sars virus that again became you know this and and then if you know that's the point and they believe that this could evolve into something else then everything changes in how people look at business and how they look at urban planning from now on you look at it you say well wait a minute this good if this could do it again the whole concept of an urban area where people live so close together and use mass transit mmhm we have to re think do we want our company here anymore because you're not going to you're not going to tear down New York City tomorrow or Chicago tomorrow and just say okay let's tear down if we're gonna tear down tomorrow and everybody moves out to more rural areas that wasn't going to happen right but there are people that have companies are gonna make decisions do we want to be here or do we go to a place for example like and we're not trying to steal any business I'm just we're used as as a hypothetical that you were going to come to Texas where more people drive cars to work in more public transportation is not close to the numbers of a New York or Chicago which because it's much much more spread out here if you ever been to Dallas for worse yes I swear you quarrel or go to West Texas and there's a lot of it what about I mean when you but even an urban area like gosh how spread out it is where you can go from and we're roughly what now we're over seven million here in this metro Hey you can call from the as always say the south west of final suburb on the you know southwest of of of fort worth and then go to north east of Dallas as far as you know the suburbs go man you're probably talking what ninety ninety five hundred miles yeah yeah it's gonna take you a while to take a while to get through it but it's so it's much more spread out for example that a you know I'm a Manhattan or New York City where you've got sixteen million isn't metro area I think now something somewhere on there yeah and and so you look at that and and so you said what will companies say we need to be in an area that has less I know it's weird because Amazon the whole thing we need to find a place with great you know public transportation but does it change because of this well I mean we find out about there's a virus and I would involved there's been natural you know migration from others other states were businesses coming here of Toyota North America is one example that they built a huge campus they call it the you know that's basically it's a city with a several large office buildings on this can't on this one campus to have everything basically all their offices right here in North Texas they did that a few years ago and if you have that migration to these metro areas because you need the resources the comp the large companies need the resources they need the people so if you go out you know frankly no offense to any family members or **** friends that live out in Lubbock but if you build out your your your your headquarters in Lubbock you're not gonna have enough people to work for you right here a major inspiration exactly so you're you're gonna have to go to these metro areas and then when you do that do they become the next hot spot because we do have tremendous growth here and we do have a number of if you go downtown Dallas right now everything is building up it's it's incredible how fast it is our flagship station WBAP I go down there and fill in on a regular basis and every time I go down it looks like another buildings come up and in just a matter of weeks or months and that's how fast they're putting up buildings that people are again living and working on top of each other it's not New York City but it is something that is changing drastically in is very different from where our city was were our area was twenty five years ago when I moved here but I would love to have a conversation with mark Cuban and expand out and when he said that out.

S. deaths over twenty eight thousand twenty eight thousand now it's about what we do where do we go from here and how do we how to re read hello all of this and one of the things we know is going to be it's got to be the new normal there I said it twice and that's it for the show is going to be I think the faster we can get the tests the better number one but also mass mass mass mass mass mass everywhere you go it's going to be about wearing mask and in New York you must wear one or B. fine dems really pulled off the street so there's gonna be some requirements I think across the board that many people will have to to deal with once we see that slow re opening it it doesn't feel like re opening to me if it's like what where can we go white can can we do and that's why right at the top you heard what the president to say because to me what's happening with the antibodies test what's happening with the vaccine all that's important vaccine to be totally accurate not into not until next year but companies are lining up to market this type of blood tests to detect whether you are I have ever had the novel coronavirus to me that's exciting the I want the antibody test because I think I had it and I think the hub is headed to but regardless because we can help people the anybody tests are critical to re opening the country they really are that way the state public health types it in your state officials would now in your area how and when we can resume whatever our everyday activities are so there are relaxed rules a little bit by the food and drug administration to allow the flow to go and and the worry for some lab experts is they could be on reliable there are companies marketing anybody Tess and I heard an interview with bill and Melinda gates and they have put a ton of money into virus research and and into corona virus research they've they've dumped well over two hundred six two hundred mill over two hundred million in this so having those tests they know and they're saying this is Katie and there that's why they're pumping money into it to try to get them out there as soon as possible of course we want them to be accurate but the blood tests measuring anybody's even in people who had few or no or symptoms and didn't get any treatment we want to see that because how will it accurately reflecting hopefully will how many people have have been inspected and then the test could reveal whether someone develops an immunity that protects from infections so epidemiology and the people who practice that are key to our recovery the medical and scientific compute it communities rather and how they deal with this is critical to where we go next and a great example is is if you had some on the front lines a nurse who were covered let's say from covert nineteen months that might allow that person to work other floors in a hospital bed have coronavirus patients and they don't have to worry about becoming infected then of course random testing when you re open schools or resolve the plant workers how they had a shudder that Smithfield plant in South Dakota which is ten percent of our pork products in the United States mmhm so many got six three hundred so when can you return to work if you have that testing that would be critical and this is what I really really want to see and service I mean obviously so to all of us because the sooner we get to that pieces of this jigsaw puzzle the better off we all trust me the better off we all will be and as reliable as reliable can can get somebody asked me a question today about walking I've been walking a lot you see people walking dogs in we've got a foster puppies are walking the puppy anything that energy out but you forty two states that have issued stay at home or shelter in place orders which means you stay home to combat the pandemic it differs from location to location essential tasks include though buying groceries walking the dog picking up medicine visiting a doctor going for a walk run or hike you just have to do social distancing and you can't linger in not sitting on benches not doing any of that state and national parks are closed to avoid anybody thinking they could do that and then of course wearing masks in public that is the one thing that you want to do and and course we're doing that I'm seeing in my neighborhood I've said this before I give them a big thumbs up everybody is practicing social distancing when you're out walking and it's not like the trails or the walkways are jammed it's wide open people are very conscientious about.
U.S. Approves Abbott Labs Coronavirus Test For Hospital Use
"Daybreak testing for the coronavirus is going to be key in determining whether we've turned the corner on the pandemic and to that end the US government is nearly doubling the amount it pays hospitals to run the large scale test for covert nineteen that's been developed by Abbott labs for more on the testing that is now under way and needs to be done we're joined by Dr Eddie Pecos professor of molecular microbiology and immunology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg school of public health good to have you back with us doctor Pecos now there are different types of tests out there of course can you sort of walk us through them and the differences between them yes so many of the tests are going to look for the presence of antibody he's not particularly in your blood and that will be telling us how many people were actually infected in this outbreak because it's one of the things we really don't know how many mild cases there were having a symptomatic cases there were sold out in the first thing the test tell us what people really want the test though to tell us is whether or not they're going to be protected from reinfection and that's something that we're all still working on because the tests that people are going to be taking that telematic that you've been exposed to the virus don't necessarily tell you that you're protected from reinfection so the next couple of weeks is going to be really intense work in research laboratories to try to figure out how these tests that everybody you're taking are going to be related to to to how protected people are from reinfection well it sounds like you're saying that we're in where you still need to take that first step of finding out just how many people have been infected where are we in that process right now so there are a lot of tests that are being rolled out by different manufacturers there are also a number of tests that are being developed at different medical institutions to move this forward so right now a lot of these tests are being validated with patient samples just to make sure that they're not only performing well but that the people who are performing the tasks are doing them in an accurate way and relatively soon be rolling that out to to to be testing as many people as possible now four still in the rollout phase it is is it safe to start talking at this point as the government already is talking about re opening the economy in some way well you know talking about future plans planning what to do is fine I think it's really really difficult right now to put a timeline on to anything because you know our public health interventions are working but we're still in the middle of dealing with the large certificates is so planning is great timelines for implementing those plans are what really is up in the air right now so what are you looking for or is it in terms of scalability of the tests that will determine whether people have been infected right now it's it's all it's all about the manufacturing capabilities so making sure that the manufacturers particularly of the really good tests are able to produce large amounts of those tests that can be distributed same issue that we ran into at the beginning of the outbreak with a test for the virus it's not just about the ability to implement the tasks about getting those tests into the laboratories of people who can do them effectively terms of developing the test to determine whether people are at risk of reinfection where are we in that process so I think we're we're we're right in the middle of everything right now you know with the outbreak only being you know a few months old here in the US for only now starting to see those people who have completely recovered and can be monitored for reinfection so that's an important thing that that research laboratories are dealing in clinical laboratories are doing and we should know again some of those answers start rolling out in the next couple of weeks based on studies here in the US and we also look to Southeast Asia where the epidemic started earlier and they're already well into that phase of starting the people who have been infected and whether or not they're susceptible to reinfection is there more that can be done on the government side to facilitate further development of these crucial tests I I think resources and distribution are really the critical things you want to make sure that these tests are being distributed equally across the country and in particular again different parts of the country going to be a different phases of the outbreak so you want these antibody tests to be put in places that are in that recovery phase so you can start analyzing the people that have survived the infection and recovered well you don't want necessarily them to be in every place at the same time so again it's it's a planning if that distribution of resources where I think the federal government can really step in and help facilitate things as we look to ward those resources being ramped up president trump is now saying that he wants to temporarily halt funding to the World Health Organization over its response to the pandemic in about the thirty or forty five seconds we have left here how seriously should the medical community take that threat what would the impact be well you know the WHL plays a very critical role particularly in in in in other countries and resource deprived countries so you know I don't know if it's really justified to be able to in the middle of a pandemic criticize and all funding to an agency that is important terms of rolling out resources to to resource starved

"Like the Abbott labs tests which is a five minute test that we had the hospitals many of the hospitals have them they're churning out about fifteen hundred to two thousand of the individual cartridges and sending them to each hospital week we obviously you know we will buy as many years as they have but there there's obviously a cross on that so that may be part of it but even if it's the traditional swap with the lab test you can get the lab tests turned around quicker than I think people can deal with that it's just if it's five or six days then it becomes much more difficult and so we're thinking about how do we use leverage the infrastructure we've already put in for kind of a phase two where were having more activity in society but still have to identify who is infected isolate them and then trace the contacts and so you don't have an outbreak in some of these communities and so we're hoping that that we're gonna be able to do even more very soon if you have the the baseline for testing the ability to be able to do things I think increases dramatically and it and it's very very important the travel update we screen almost twenty thousand people coming from the New York City area in from New Orleans mostly from the New York City area obviously the top hot zone in the world and the requirement to self isolate I think that that's been effective you don't have that many people coming from that part of the country in not have massive outbreaks unless you're doing something and so I think that that.

"But they can still spring back to life. I think the president of the administration need to give people hope though. They need to show people that they're start. Not just people in their homes. Keep the virus from spreading but they need an explanation of. Why must you do it now? And what will it look like two weeks from? Now what will it look like four weeks from now? What about six weeks from now? What about an areas where the viruses and spreading but areas where it's contained what about an areas where it's still spreading? Just give people some hope now. One of the things that they have to do is they've got to bring testing capacity rapid testing capacity online. You know Britain got a bunch of anybody from China. They all failed unless people were. Were already terribly sick to the point that they knew they had the virus all the tests fail. Britain had to send them back China's doing this. Do you know that Italy sit? China a bunch of ventilators in China made Italy pay to bring them back. Have you heard that in the news anywhere? That's legit story. It has been confirmed. Italy sit ventilators to help the Chinese people and China made Italy pay to send them back but here in this country. We've got Abbott Labs and others that are inventing Rapid tests rapid tests and in inventing the rapid tests. We should be able to know within minutes whether someone has the virus so it should be very very easy for us very soon to lead people out of their house. Everybody gets tested. You're allowed to go about your business. If you don't have the virus if you do have the virus you gotta stay home a US court power if you have to keep the person home and everybody goes out where a mask if you have to want to get into the mass situation. But where masked but there are ways we can do this but the underlying premises. It involves us. I all staying home for the next couple of weeks to ramp up testing capacity once. That's there we should be able to get out of the house again. We should be able to open the economy and we should be able to live life again. But what the president and his team do need to do is to give people that hope that life is going to go on normally again at some point soon..

"And every one of them has encouraged passage of laws and regulations and the creation of novel courts Judgements that embrace new theories of law. I've existing law that. Make all the things that they did illegal and so they want you to think that it's network affects what it really is is kicking the ladder away so that no one else up right in. So this is a common thing. I see with all these companies. That the the the upstarts the new guys a small geysers start. Ups are out there pushing really hard for standards. And this is the interoperability. You're talking about because to them. It benefits them. But obviously the incumbents in this case these big tech is you're talking about are all about the proprietary stuff and you're you're right. They're blaming things but it's there's a definite dynamic where it's the the little guy has always clamoring standing so that everybody can interact together and they'll and there's federation and you know everybody can play in this thing where the guys are like none of that would you know. We are the default de facto standard for everybody. And and we're not GonNa let you work with us. Oh yeah or you know. The other thing that they like is standardizing as a way of creating competitive moat. So after the two thousand election cycle Where the voting machine failures made it unclear who had been elected president. There was a directive to standardize voting machines and the voting machine vendors led by debold went to the I triple e. And they said we're here to standardize voting machines. Tripoli's said well. That sounds like a prestigious thing. Welcome Aboard Charter. Your Committee and then Immediately they said well standard that. We're here to define what we call performance standard or a descriptive standard. Not Not a not a performance standard and that description will be detailed description of all of the products we already sell any product we sell including the ones that blew up the Florida. Mallet count will comply with the standard. And nothing else will right. So that's the standardisation. Their standards and their standards and standards including mandated standards are a great floor on interoperability. But they don't make good ceiling right if if we say okay. The standard is all. I is what you must allow people to implement but you cannot But people cannot do anything that goes beyond the SPEC then you have firms that will arrange their affairs so that they face no competitive challenge from implementation standard. Only from the things around it and they'll orient all of their competitive armor Around the things that are next to the standard instead of in the standard. So you you mentioned log on. I want to dig back into a little bit. Because that's there are several of these examples of what I think of like the razor blade model thing where I make I make the kind of the base thing but then there's something that you've got to constantly replace that. I'm going to sell to you at a high price so I I give you the the platform whatever that is. And then I'm going to charge a lot for the the thing that you need to replace all time. It's sort of a subscription thing and you know Lex Mark was certainly one of those. Ain't cars give basically give you the printer. But I wanNA milk you and have you over a barrel because you have to use my ink you know in perpetuity which GonNa charge you a nominal leg for and that's what these other companies as well. We could make an cards at work but then Donald Kinda got blown away when the DNC came out what you talked about and some of these other kind of legal things that allowed them to protect these things basically with software. I think they even did that. With current cups right. I mean I think even the Kurd cups you think how would you? It's Chata you know. What would you do with that? I think they had some sort of like invisible barcodes or something on your explain what that was all right so so. We need a little bit of legislative history. Here make it all make sense so when the DMC was passed it was billed as a way of fighting copyright infringement but it was also designed to help protect business models even when violating those. Does this pedals. DidN'T VIOLATE COPYRIGHTS? I think. Something like the Sega. Dreamcast right back to the back to the mid nineties. The Sega dreamcast had a business model. That was that they would sell you hardware while necessarily at a discount but but cheaper and Then they would charge independent software vendors to make software for the Sega and they had a little Like SEGA CD detection routine in the dreamcast. And if you burned a SEGA CD and you stuck it in the in the CD drive the Sega would say I'm sorry. This isn't an unofficial SEGA CD so the the software vendors who made SEGA Games had to buy time on SEGA CD presses in order to make their games and SEGA CHARLESTON FOREVER. See they press got paid before a single. Cd was sold and even if the game tank say you got a lot of money now think about it for minute. Say I'm an independent software vendor and I make a video game. That's my copyrighted. Works and sell it to you. Who owns a Sega dreamcast? That is your property. And you play the game on your Sega Console. No copyright infringement has taken place obviously right selling your own copyrighted work to someone who wants it who then goes on to enjoy it on equipment that belongs to them is definitively not a lucky right infringement. Right in the same way that going into a store and say India and buying a DVD for cheaper than a cost in America the official DVD and bringing home to America and watching it is not a copyright infringement paying the rights holder. Exactly THE PRICE. They asked for their copyrighted work. And enjoying it in a way that you are supposed to enjoy it the opposite of copyright infringement but the DMCA's intention was to make it illegal to frustrate these commercial desires and so the law was passed with no exception for people who broke the R. M. But never violated copyright right so in other words if you bypass the region lock on the DVD player but only ever watch DVD's that you had paid for legitimately Fr- that were official copies. The breaking of the lock itself would be a copyright violation. Even though you committed no piracy and what this did was it said that anyone who made a work Omega device that played copyrighted works. Could Felon is any conduct that their shareholders frowned upon? But then a funny thing happened on the way to the twenty first century which is that software appeared in every device. And what you could say. Is that the copyright law that you bypassed. In order to unlock the device was not a lock that protected media in the device it was a law protected the firmware of the device right so that the coffee right work is the devices own operating system not a game not a DVD but the software in the device. So I said lex knock sued Out of controls over Bypassing the DRM on there a toner cartridge wasn't a toner. They were laser printers and That software was at twelve byte program on primitive hip in the Turner Cartridge. That would When the toner ran out it would flip single bit from. Im Foale too. I am empty and then it didn't matter how much carbon you put back. In the toner cartridge it would still say I am empty. And instead of control of her near that twelve program which can't have been very difficult and And and made a chip. That said I'm full when they went to court. The judge said to lex mark. Where's your copyrighted work and let's not said it's at twelve program in the chip and of course it well. Software is copyright about twelve. Bikes is not enough to raise the level of copyright that is not even Haiku Right. And so it's not copyright -able but flat flash forward to today and you have something like an HP printer cartridge with HP HP Subscription Business Model. So HP now sells printers where you have to pay a monthly subscription and no matter how much ink you having your cartridge if you've used up all the pages your subscription provides for that month then. Your printer won't print anymore. They have tens of thousands of lines of code in that device right. They've got a little system on a chip costs about twenty seven cents. It's got Lennox on it. It's got probably an insecure version of busy box on it and and It is assuredly copyrighted work and so now what you have is anyone who's got software and their device only needs to add a one molecule thick layer of drm that you have to scrape off in order to change the software and now doing anything to that device becomes a felony so most recently. The company called Abbott Labs or a giant in the medical device. Feel based in Silicon Valley and They make a continuous glucose. Monitor and continuous glucose monitors are half of what are called close loops or artificial pancreases. These are things that were invented by diabetes for themselves. They would take on an implanted. Insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor writes some software that would read the output from the Glucose Monitor and titrate a dose of insulin. And we're keeping going all around the clock so for one thing you could sleep through the night. Which is the thing that a lot of people? Party's can't do you have to wake up in the morning. Stick yourself in. Check your blood sugar. It you ended up with a much better blood sugar range which you know has long range implications people whose blood sugar is habitually range. Di Really early. It's a major course. Source of early mortality. So that makes this device and outputs data to an APP on your phone and some people with diabetes reverse engineered the APP so that they could extract their own blood sugar data and feed it into an algorithm. That would then directly functioning of their of their insulin pumps and Abbott labs for its own reasons. Maybe it wants to make sure they buy their own Abbott Labs Insulin pumps and you know Johnson and Johnson Applied for and got approval for an insulin. Pump that uses a proprietary cartridge. So that even though the influence selfish commodity you know banting and best invented insulin. One hundred years ago and gave the patent away because they thought it would be rude to charge people with diabetes for access to this lifesaving I- logical. The cartridge can't be refilled right. It's like lex Mart Cartridge except instead of having twelve bytes of code. Got Enough Code that it's a felony to bypass echo to refill it. So they can turn people with diabetes into inkjet printers have to pay premium for the biological that they need they can. They can turn your organ into an object so ABBOTT LABS GOTHA PROJECT TAKEN DOWN. Get up and they they did so on the basis of the DMC twelve one plane and like. Let's just step back here. Review going on data is factual not copy writable but this data is not data that at last create so even if it were caulking right of all it wouldn't be Abbott Labs. Who had the coffee because this is the data that literally came from your blood? You Own your Glucose Monitor. They're not giving those away. So it's your glucose monitor so you WanNa access your copy writable blood sugar data from a device that you paid for and you own and Abbott Labs says. I'm sorry.
