Are Smart Phone Apps Ripping You Off?
"Both apple and google are being sued all over the place for how they run their stores. The app store the play store and what these two have been doing. Is they use their shared monopoly control over the ecosystem of phones to put up tollgates to rip you off a lot of cases. You're not even aware how much you're being ripped off their when you download an app that comes with this subscription or purchases. It's marked up an additional thirty percent for the toll that they have to pay the app. Developer has to pay to google or apple and this is so different than the era of the pc. The mac book the windows. Computer the chromebook that when you go to a website you use any function on your computer apple and google and the people who manufacturer chromebooks and all that they don't extract a toll and so the cost of anything you pay goes to who built that service now. This is a huge deal with apple self-dealing trying to rip people off on pandora and especially spotify to try to get iphone users to use apple music. It is true self-dealing where apple is able to grab all this money and google just as guilty in this area and microsoft who quietly has become one of the most valuable companies in the world again.

Add on that you have to pay right now in the app store or in the play store and so no that with apps you're using that you're paying usually much more than you have to

Although this moat isn't on the iphone there are ways that you can get around the awkward situation of a notification popping up that you didn't want to win a friend or somebody else's looking at your phone for a quick fix you can choose. Do not disturb which hides everything so that no one can view them for something a little more permanent and consistent you can go to settings notifications and show previews then.

It's all available in settings then apps and notifications select notifications again. You'll see options for notifications on lock screen to make changes. Kim reports the definition of sensitive content depends on your device but should include things like text messages to turn off notifications for specific apps on android. Follow the same steps but go to the specific app then. Hit advanced to make any changes

I think that was new from your book. I hadn't heard that the past that someone w- the jeff wanted to integrate voice commands into the kindle at one point. They finally talked about it because it wouldn't be able to ship it time. I don't know that that was the inspiration for alexa but it to me was a symbol of his apparent faith in voice as an interface. And there was this question that some reviewers headed the time. And i remember wondering about why was there a microphone in the third version of the kindle and it was never it was never used at i went to some engineers who worked at it and they were like yet. Jeff insisted that we keep it even when we were trying to reduce the bill of materials and he says and the word came back to them. Jeff believes that in the future will communicate by voice so it was just as a signal that back in whenever that kindle came out i think like two thousand and two thousand nine that basis was thinking about voice But it wasn't until and again this was. It was really hard to kind of piece together. What the original inspiration was and fokin heart. And sorry ian freed and greg hardy who worked very closely together. They actually tell different stories about this. About what the and you know.

Meaning google's find my network has the potential to be quite comprehensive. Should it roll out.

"Over on the android developers blog over Google <hes> very excited because <hes> saw that android eleven for android TV is here, , which is very exciting. . Introduce android eleven on android TV was the name of the the blog posts. . No super exciting, , and it's only sort of now <hes>. . Basically, , it includes permissions privacy features in memory management for android eleven it will also support for <unk> provide support for low latency mode on certain TV's it's got an expanded gamepad support including the <unk> tend to switch pro controller steam controller. . Also a silent BOOT MOOD FOR SYSTEM UPDATES TV standby for an activity. . No mentions at all. . Of any UI changes at the moment <hes>, , this whole update was actually more meant for developers those way more under the hood than the front end side of it <hes> men currently only one devices supported the ADT three <hes>. . They stay teas that more devices are coming in the coming months <hes> but good question as we're on the eve. . Presumably on the eve of the presumably run the eve of the announcement <hes> around Google's new roll out from the Pixel five all the way down a google chrome cast. . What does this mean for Google chrome cast with Google TV device? ? Is it GonNa Launch the android eleven? ? Who knows <hes> we go to wait and see but I like all this activity around Android TV Jason, , what do you think makes? ? <hes> makes of the impending comcast announcement. . I don't know because I seem to remember there was that leak that said Oh yeah. The . Sabrina device is gonNA come out and it's going to have android Lebanon. . It's GonNa. . Look totally different Blah Blah Blah. . This really unless Google is just kind of like taking us for a ride a week ahead of of the announcement <hes> this just feels like it won't last launch with android eleven <hes>. . So I'm not entirely sure what this means for the U I and and for this device this device then to launch with android ten and still be called ANDROID TV because it won't be rebrand or. . I don't now I guess we won't know until next week when they actually officially announce it but we do know the name of this device is going to be the google chrome cast with Google. . TV, , that makes me think that there's some sort of branding change shifting away from android TV Google TV, , which would make me think that there would be a change to the UI in some capacity but. . I don't know I mean. . I feel like do for changes I mean I I I'm probably saying this out of several months now of using ANDROID TV and being tired of the you it but. . I do think it's do but if it's not if it's not that point in time, , then we just continued to wait but but I do think that it could use a refresh <hes> this point. . So yeah. . Well I do too <hes> and and at the same time I'm very curious to see the device that was supposedly going to be running android. . So has the eighty three well, , not nobody developers have the ADT three it's a developer box it's not a consumer product. . It's not something you can go into a store and buy. . So really we're just waiting <hes> find out more, , but this is <hes> early. . More more coming. . So that's always good to know that more is coming. . Yes. . Oh Yeah of course both. .

"Makes it a little bit of sense. But Timmy got trump who hates Jeff bezos will never allow that to happen so much. I've actually kind of makes sense here. So initially, it was much want to buy Canada and New Zealand. Stralia. News. Australia, yeah and that was gone and then. And now is that now talks apparently would hire and Marxist wanted to buy. Basically, all of including Europe in India where it's currently now banned. The place it wouldn't have it is China. In tackling China, I guess it operates on our different name anyway but it would be so be the global business for tiktok outside of China that marks it'd be easier for them to control messaging trolley algorithms, all that kind of stuff. That's the plan. Microsoft wanted I think it actually makes. Get. TIKTOK is it's not a consumer product. I know people say that it's an advertising platform. That's they need twenty billion dollars last year and e commerce and advertising. If Mark Software to buy this, go from pretty low in advertising right up there with Google and facebook in terms of levels and that only grown one hundred, eighty percent year over year growth from two thousand and nineteen two, thousand, eighteen to nineteen. It's just absolutely massive. In fact talk so big if you combine instagram and was it no snapchat and twitter. If you combine those two things it would have almost as many daily active users as Tiktok does, which is pupils people's minds because twitter is so high profile. The fact is twitter doesn't actually have that many users daily active users compared to even like I said, they brought I think a little bit less than half of Tiktok. So this is a really a massive think but that's where the money's being made from. It's advertising much of actually doesn't need to change anything here. They just need that team, run it and then. They just collect the revenue advertising even if they're rumored to pay. Tiktok, as a whole, the global companies rumored to be around fifty billion dollars, you pay forty billion Ford or whatever in theory that can make all that money back in two years right. So it's like it's a really lucrative deal negatively on the flip side to this. It's kind of A. Really shoddy thing to be like. mugs up's going to be able to buy tick tock solely because US garments threatening this company basically put them out of business or you sell to US company like China. Did that China came in and went like facebook we're going to completely block you and destroy your company or you sell to our Chinese company. I don't think Americans would be like Oh. That's fine. That's cool. I. Don't see any problem with it. To be fair like facebook isn't allowed to operating China true. So He don't even get to that point but yeah, your point's well taken in brings up Europe right. So like Europe is actually I think people being United States were very fixated on Silicon Valley, like Oh, it's amazing. We have facebook Google. We're the masters of the universe when it comes to Internet Technology Europe isn't so cool with that. You don't love the idea that all the core that world for online is in Silicon Valley and their companies don't even get a chance to really kind of compete because suzy are rising to get bought out right.

"Ooh. Alright. So I wanNA talk a little bit about Microsoft and Samsung sitting in a tree 'cause this company like Microsoft and Samsung have fostered a pretty close relationship of last couple of years. You see bits and pieces it started with the might with. Microsoft. Putting its APPs on Samsung devices than Microsoft's selling. Samsung, phones in its stores you've had exclusive a software. Partnerships including most recently with your phone. You can now mirror APPs on a Samsung device. You can't do that with any other a android phone on a windows PC. So I just want to talk about the the way that this partnership got off the ground and how it was doing. Microsoft was doing this in plain sight of Google knowing that this is a sort of a side hustle between these two very large companies while also taking advantage of being on this open android platform and it was very interesting to me that onstage during the unpacked events or whatever it was, it wasn't an event to his more like a spectacle. Samsung talked about how its relationship with Microsoft and Google have both strengthened over the last couple of years. Microsoft with all of these APP experiences Google with soccer updates and kind of like making android core android better on Samsung phones. And that would would not have happened just two or three years ago. Right? Samsung is in a better position. Now, more comfortable position to talk about things that way. Speak to the Microsoft relationship and how that came to be and how it's grown to what it is today. Yeah you know I would love to midnight fly on the wall during those talks both internally at Microsoft and between mark up and Samsung. This goes back Assadullah to his different take on the company is very different from bomber bomber. I know people revere bomber but and he was good at some things but he had his failures too and he tried to take the company in the Apple Way Right, which is walled garden. You're at war with everybody and you want to destroy everybody so that your products when as they're like will we don't WanNa do ipod the ipod we'll do zoom we don't want to do you know we'll do our own phoned. And it didn't work right like it just didn't work. You can save. If you look at all the failures that everybody loves to bring up to me all the time. Those are all balmer heiress stuff cooling windows phone I know Nidal, technically killed the project he when he came in, he gave that team free rein. All right. Well to your windows ten mobile will see where this goes and they did and it didn't go anywhere.

but returning to the show it's been it's been a while it's been a couple of years francisco franco awesome developer android developer and just a classic guest on this show welcome back to the show francisco hey guys nice to be back it's really great to have you back one of the more notorious guests of all that andrew in history one could say say his his well there have been a couple more enforcement kiss uh-huh but none speak their mind quite as well as you do francisco you're going to be on ooh excellent this is going to be fun yes good time francisco on cannot forget that simpson doesn't care you made up for because then on your follow up episode i think the even the title was franscisco cares after all so you know you've come full circle it's all good it's good to have you on your totally sacrificing your evening in your sleep because it's one AM where you are and we really appreciate when when folks like you i agreed to do that i don't know that i would be so willing to wake up a. for a podcast but i'm so happy that you are it's really great to have you back on and how we have a lot of fun stuff to talk about we do each and every week i would say this week is kinda news light ish but we've got some heavy hardware where stuff yeah we did a lot of come out but were like past like we're we're pre holidays so like new hardware to buy for the holidays are out there and there's not a lot of announcements announcements and this is like the prec s time periods so it's it's going to get we're starting to quiet period unfortunately yeah things slow down a little bit but that that won't stop stop us from talking about things that people want to know about just louise ahead do have the stadium here and we're gonna talk about it in a little bit but i i don't want to deprive victor of his opportunity it's time for the news since episode one we've been notorious glorious for android fun time on android news notorious tate fun time so i like leveraging what what has happened on the show l. already but victor did you have one plan and then you throw it out the window or did you not have were you not prepared good question ron let's just say had something to do about rolling out stuff but like rolling out android news or okay i had prepared but you saw a better opportunity you went for it i like it good similar similar to how google has a has a new thing and they're going for it for the better segue my head but it is a new dawn for messaging aging as google finally did what a probably should have done a year ago and rolled out debuted our CS chat as a replacement for SMS on an android after much talking about our CS and back and forth the carriers and all this stuff google flip the switch and made it available to all in the US they already made it available in the UK and france this past june they were they waited in the US for carriers to come round but the carriers as we've discussed previous episode drag their feet and actually indicated indicated they're going to go and other in their own direction so google's now using its own servers to enable our CS instead once the carriers launched their own or which is known as the CPI or cross carrier messaging initiative in two thousand twenty the transition should hopefully be seamless supported and it requires the use of android messages messages and so some interesting notes related to this also samsung messages other defaults messages apple samsung does support our CS but only provided by the carrier and each each model supported separately so sam uses would also need to use android messaging messages to benefit apple still has not said whether plans to support it at all or or not support it we don't either direction it's not encrypted end to end but it isn't scripted in transit so technically it's possible for google to build in and ed encryption but that all depends on getting the aid who agree to that change and carriers have to be on board with that change which seems unlikely given the past kind of the precedence of up to this point but hey is here it's changing the world for the better francisco how do you feel about the google messaging being in this approach to this is something that you think is overdue or does it not matter to you can i curse probably not depends on the word careful i think well i i'm not arguing that whatsoever it's really been a clumsy kind approach clumsy rollout and for for at this point for google to finally just be like okay we're rolling it out anyways just makes it feel like why didn't you do this before but but back that up why why do you call it an s. show or whatever though of i mean really started has been pretty bad at anything that's related to who've messaging yes i believe i i'm not much into our stuff by the stadium even growing before maybe they weren't ready or older a guys they built for the curious to us or ready so i'm just guessing but either that they took their time and actually may make it work properly and not be and i think it's it's it's it's a good choice but as long as hangouts is dead i'm just happy with it you don't you don't you don't like gang outs at this point you're happy that it's dying seemed to rely on it for some weird reason for at least parts of mike communication but i mean for me it's been a nightmare this past few years received thousands and thousands of spam mm-hmm messages related to poor i mean it's bad about imagine i'm using hang on my in computer my wife just next to me received some random message for what some naked person i mean it's not nice yeah so i had to just turn completely and i think google just messed messed it up absolutely all the time and they just they just like to add messaging to everything on youtube message that stuff i mean enough is enough is enough but but the thing is is that at least at least with our CS and and i totally agree i agree with you francisco it is it is a the show but i don't feel like it's completely google to blame i feel like the carriers are the problem with this is that it needs to be the and everyone in solution or it's going to be a problem and with apple not saying indicating either direction and the carriers branch off doing their i think it just continues this fragmentation that we see across the mobile the mobile market that we can't you know the reason why SMS works because it worked on every phone everyone use the same protocol the protocol has been around since the eighties and it was ubiquitous and with everybody kind of wanting to own the you know this whole idea of owning their own you know kind of protocol or platform platform whatever it's not consumer friendly it's continue are just having this conversation the other day we were i was talking actually to my wife about cell phones and you know more more and more the manufacturers and even in even the especially the carriers but even google and apple are not consumer i in a lot of their decisions asians and it's really baffling because these are the people using the phones but they're making decisions that either you know are are overly benefiting themselves or making you are our consumer hostile decisions that is really unfortunate i kinda kinda wonder if they should as much as would because they've already lost to what's up and all those other messaging systems so i wonder if they have the motivation to to to push it budget yeah i really do i think it should be something that's the same for all carriers all countries like a mess but i think we we have cassini for awhile been using for longer than a year prongs so i wonder if american carriers as always artist on purpose i think that's absolutely what what has happened is the the carriers have no fire lit under them or they had in mind well well we don't want to do it your way we wanna do it our way and that's why they came up with their own cross carrier messaging initiative the good news here at least in the US is that with google rolling it out now everybody hops on as long as they're using android messages they get access to that i got the update that said hey it's it's available to you now it really does boggle my mind why google just didn't do that in the first place because then everybody would have been there earlier and once the carriers do launch their own initiative apparently the transition will be seamless so you know messages still also yes with a little giggle because when is it ever seamless but you know that will be supported within messages as well and that transition will happen hopefully we don't we aren't any the wiser it's just now it works over here here instead of over here but it's all from within the same app and everything and that's what we can hope for anyways but what about all those vices that don't cheap messages cheaper their own folk version or off the air SAP gee what about what's arthur yeah i mean that's that's a really great question right like it's it's all totally tied into this particular app you know service run by google google the phone doesn't have it there to begin with i guess it defaults to SMS and it's the way that it has been and what does that and it's still a fragmented kind of place where some are getting this and others are getting a limited experience you know i mean you can get google messages from the blister not everyone knows what it is where donald too right i mean not everyone likes to get apps from the play store so it's going to be a mess or or if if you're a user who's using textra using any other messaging apps that are out there you're not going to get to leverage this and not everybody who uses android watches this show or reads android blogs or whatever it might be so yeah the communication the ramp up is going to be limited as well all too i happen to be google messages as i cool sweet but i don't know if it's working for like well how do you tell if you're using it or not well you can go go into settings in it'll showroom i mean do this without showing things so here's settings on my my app oppose chat features here it is so i hit chat features and i get chat features unavailable for this device carried is not currently support this feature so you haven't had add this this staged roll out update that supposedly everybody is getting right now i did get mine but yeah and what carrier are you on t. mobile not mobile not that that would matter because this is coming directly from google but yeah and as far as third party messenger messaging apps i have to imagine if our CS us at this point that probably moves it up on the list for those as well so i can't imagine like android messages will always be the only messaging app on android android that supports our sierras talk about a dead plan if that's the case so google would want for other messaging app developers to to build this functionality into their apps as well.
