Apple debuts discount watch, but no new iPhones ... yet

"Get ready for some new apple products. The tech giant will unveil new versions of some old products on Tuesday and potentially show off some new ones do, but it's going to be the first apple product reveal without its usual audience. Instead, the event will feature prerecorded demos spread out over a couple of hours. There will be new IPADS and Apple Watch additions and possibly air pod over the ear headphones plus Apple's take on a Bluetooth key finder, but there won't be any new. IPHONES. They'll be unveiled next month Jefferson Graham from USA Today's talking tech podcast as more. Let's start with the IPAD basically a higher end better looking newer IPAD air. This is the product that sells for five hundred dollars as opposed to the three hundred and twenty nine dollars entry level or the eight hundred dollar ipad pro analysts expect an edge to edge display minus a home button and something. I'm pretty excited about touch ID, which is where you press the home button instead of using face id but touch ID will be on one of the buttons on the side of the unit I hate face I It never works for me, and of course, anybody with the mask knows it doesn't work for them either. So I think this is pretty cool the Apple Watch series six it's expected to be more about software than hardware with a more powerful processing chip it's expected to be able to detect blood oxygen levels and watch users could get an improved electrocardiogram feature to check heart rate. No that the roster currently is three, ninety nine for the series five and one, ninety, nine for this series three. So I think series three is going to be replaced with a lower end watch and can't wait to see what series six all about otherwise analysts think. We might see some new over the ear headphones Cold Air POD studio along with the long rumored apple tags, which again is apple's clone of the tile. Bluetooth key tractor tile was. Really popular about two years ago and sort of lost its Mojo. So it'll be interesting to see what happens

New Apple-Google Contact Tracing Tool - Exposure Notification

The Vergecast

New Apple-Google Contact Tracing Tool - Exposure Notification

"Apple and Google, obviously announced that contact tracing exposure notification I think is going to be calling it exposure notification system. The AP is a system where released. A while ago, there were some apps across some states that use those Api and buy some you mean like ask or maybe to her like not enough. Yeah not enough. So the next step of the apple Google exposure notification systems. It's good. It is also very complicated. So they've built the API's the phones can do exposure notification they can trade the Bluetooth keys. And they can check those you know if you. The list of keys on your phone checked against a database if any of those keys. In the database are registered as having tested positive. You get you know notification and says, you were notified person parameters that you were exposed per some parameters. The different states can set that initially required to have an APP on your phone. So the system was working in the background, but to do something like submit a positive test for yourself, you need an APP from public health authority. Apple or not taking the next step. So Iowa thirteen point seven just came out it now has the interface for that stuff built into the APP if your local health authority wants to enable in some way the. The Google site just very different and it's very android and its way the your local health authorities can give the phones, a set of parameters that will then auto generate an android. APP. That works with the framework. Yeah very complicated but why does that complicated? It's just it's so android and they can't really bake it into the the operating system without going through all of the update medications of android. So it is easier to dynamically compile an application on the phone that touches I mean that's like Klarius right. Whereas apple is pushing it. You know we've been covering very closely imagine if you've been listening to show already in the verge, you're aware of it. You just read these stories and read how it works. I worry that it's so complicated. All of this stuff is so complicated and requires so many. So many different sorts of agencies and public health authorities and hospitals and people to understand how it works to make it effective. I think now that it's here, it's time to kind of hammer on that. So I think that's the next step here, but that's good news overall. The system has been in development, apple and Google for all of the other noise around those companies, all their challenges in all their congressional testimonies, they appear to be just making steady incremental progress on this which I think is great. Can I just say one thing about these these situations situations have been complicated the Priscilla's be complicated needing them to be simple isn't just for simplicity's sake it isn't just for aesthetic reasons that simple things are nicer or even just easier to understand It's that you know situation where there are bad faith actors who will use any complicated thing anything that's. To understand as a cudgel against it. Or. As a way to like the waters. Complicated. Things actually become really problematic. It's harder to muddy the waters with a simple thing that it is complicated thing.

Tips and Tricks: How to create a DIY teleprompter

"For our listeners. So stay tuned after the show for more. Hey this is Larry Becker and I'm filling in for the vacationing Jefferson Graham on talking tech on the author of the recently released book. Great on camera and today I've got some cool tips in insights for those of you. That need to deliver a message on camera. And what I want to talk to you about is teleprompter options today it yeah I've worked with traditional teleprompters and I've worked in a studio with a teleprompter operator great experience but most of us don't have that luxury. So these days what I use is an IPAD. So I wanNA tell you a little bit about some of the software options that you have and some of the hardware options and some twists on this that are a little bit different than you might expect I do teleprompter operator stuff different than most. People I know but it works great and it might even work great for you. I've been using the same piece of software since it came out the software that I like is called teleprompter plus and that's the plus sign in the number three. So teleprompter plus three is the APP that I use. I can't tell you how much it is because I bought it way back when and now when I go to the apple APP store, it just says oh Larry you already bought this do you want to download again but? It won't tell me the price. So I, don't know how much it is. It may be a free download within APP purchases I don't know but teleprompter plus three from a company called brain is what I use and the reason that I like it is it does everything you need to tell proper to do. You can make the size of the type bigger or smaller. You can make it scroll faster or slower. You can remote control it from a keyboard and you can do a lot of these things remote control. From keyboard like jump to the next paragraph or jumped to the previous paragraph, you have to put in points for that but is all really straightforward and very easy to do and run, and then if you actually have a real legit teleprompter hardware setup on your camera, like with that forty five degree angle see-through mirror glass. Then what you have to have is you have tabular teleprompter image flipped to mirror view and it can do that, and so I've done that over the years with this piece of software works just great. The next thing that you could use is a very popular application and I don't use this. But when it came out, I thought about it for a little while and then I ended up not getting it and it is called prompt smart pro prompt smart pro. Now, it used to be like twenty bucks I think now they're doing subscription and you gotta Pay Forty Bucks a year for it, and they have a whole lot of extras and features and cool stuff going on with it, and it can do everything that tell prompt plus three can do plus. It listens to you as you read the script and it advances the script based on you reading the script that's pro and a con all in one because if you go off script or if you screw up and you want to go back a little bit, you can't do that easily with this particular piece of software. Now, you can turn off where it listens to you and just use prompt smart pro with your remote Bluetooth Keyboard. So those are a couple different applications you can use them on the IPAD but make sure that you pay attention to how I use it. I do not have one of those expensive. Forty five degree angle mounted on the camera teleprompter setups. The reason that I don't have that I don't use that is because I discovered a longtime ago that if I five or six feet away seven feet away from the camera and the teleprompter is just below the Camera Lens and I'm reading from that teleprompter you can't tell I'm looking just below the Camera Lens. Now, if the cameras really close to me, you might be able to see that I'm looking right below the Lens but in the studio setup where I used to work in my home studio, the cameras always like five six. Seven feet away from me and with the camera that far away and the prompter, my ipad just below the camera, all I need to do is put my ipad on an Easel

What Went Wrong With Contact Tracing Apps

"Back in March when it was clear that cove nineteen was spreading rapidly across Europe the UK had a problem much like the US ability to test for the virus was extremely limited. So while they race to increase their testing capacity, they put their faith in a technological solution. When they embarked on this APP, it was going to be the primary government response to this entire pandemic. while. Other governments such as Germany I deployed testing capabilities and then got their hospitals ready for the flow of patients. The UK prioritize development of an APP to do all things and that is the APP wasn't just to do contact tracing the APP was there to detect whether or not you are risk, and so it wanted to use as much data as a could in order to compute whether or not based on you not feeling well and based on your interactions with others. Could they guess essentially whether or not? You had the virus so it was supposed to be the in extraordinary intelligence exercise to compensate for the fact that they didn't have testing. The NHS spent months developing their tests and trace APP and in early May they launched a limited trial of the newly minted tech on the Isle of wight. That's an island on the south coast of England. The APP worked are was supposed to work by enabling smartphones to communicate with each other via Bluetooth users would enter their health data which would then be shared to a centralized server. If they had Kobe's symptoms, other users, they'd come in close contact with would be alerted and directed to self isolate. Gus was one of eleven people on an ethics, advisory board for the project, and so he got an early look at the APP and it didn't take long for all of them to find problems when we audited the APP, it showed that it was the moment you opened it it was contacting Microsoft and Google and it's forgivable to some degree because. To be fair to the people working on this up, they were the front line of the pandemic response in the UK, and so they were working twenty four hour days trying to create an option whatever code they can grab from wherever they were just putting it in to create an APP that could be deployed but that's different from creating that is privacy friendly and secure and trustworthy but the bigger finding in our tests that we didn't talk about that much was that it wasn't working. We were testing whether or not. It was detecting Bluetooth connections with other devices around and nothing we could do could get it to detect a phone that was just right beside it. And when we reported this to the developers, their response was on on on a we've got this all sorted, and so this is where we get to the point where as a representative of the privacy community. I wasn't often raising privacy issues about the APP I was raising questions as to whether or not it would work. And second who it would work for could be deployed on every mobile phone or. The most recent mobile phones, the ones that cost thousand dollars plus can it be used by everybody in all walks of life or just by the people who are in professional services? Kept demanding for the actual data to see have you tested it? Can you show me that devices that actually works on King's show me the response rates and they kept on saying no, it works fine. It worked fine. It works fine until finally in June they had actually it was only recording iphones at four percent of the time, which is a disastrous. result. June. Eighteenth they announced there were not going to launch the APP. What happened as a result? What was the fallout? The fallout from the failure of the APP was that. The government had invested so much political capital and. Finally. Being competent one thing because it had failed on protective gear, it had failed undeployed testing and the ED failed on care homes and the numbers are deaths were rising and the prime minister even been hospitalized, and so they needed a win and in that period of time they were building up this up. They were making this APP sound like it was the solution to everything because it had to be the solution to everything because they had no other solutions elsewhere and so the political capital and the public trust capital that they were investing this out. All. Got Wasted. And I think, even the public were hoping that tech would be the solution and everybody woke up the next morning with a horrible hangover from this entire before months of wasted energy and opportunity. A number of APPs have been launched Germany has has touted its version. The State of Virginia just launched its APP recently. have. You seen an APP that you could give a rubber stamp of approval to so. Most of the APPS, you just listed off have shifted over to using the Google, apple implementation, which is as far as we can see into it a very good design from the privacy and security perspective and theory people should feel safe as they download those apps and use those APPs. The Google apple tracing tool went public on May twentieth like the UK's APP, it relies on Bluetooth technology unlike the UK system, it doesn't collect data and share it to a central database. It's useful for individuals but does not supply health information. Back to governments there are complaints about the apple and Google software I'm thinking of Switzerland in the Swiss health department has really complained about Swiss Kovic, the name of their App i WanNa read you the statement from the Swiss Health Department spokesman who said we don't know and have no way of finding out the number of people warned by the APP or any false positives or false negatives essentially, they're complaining that there's no way to get good statistics that they could use for public health purposes. What do you make of that? Leave Swiss responses entirely right. They can't learn about the nature of the disease they can't learn about. Transmission and all those things that would be helpful. The Apple Google model currently precludes any of that kind of sharing of data with the public health agency apple, Google of made some decisions saying if governments want to collect data, they can collect data, but they're not gonNA collected via a covid contact tracing APP on our operating systems and I think that's their right to say as such but it's also given rise to concern that up on Google far too much power to make these decisions. and I wonder what you make of that concern as both a privacy expert and as a human I've struggled a lot with this question but I've seen the way that this process takes place across the world I've seen the beauce's that have arisen. Around the pandemic response, but generally around governments who just can't stop themselves when it comes to the ability to get access and exploit data about their citizens and around dissidents and how they treat people generally and marginalized people in target people. So apple and Google made a call that public trust was more important but they also very importantly, they are not calling it a contact tracing APP. They're calling an exposure notification and that that might sound like semantics, but it's really important differentiation. It's not designed to replace contact tracing, which is that centralized government administer administered initiative. It is just a helpful tool. What governments have had to wake up to, and this is what particularly the UK government had a wake up to they wanted the opt to replace all human processes when they realized that there wasn't going to work because it was fanciful they then ramped up the human processes.

Virginia Becomes First State to Try Covidwise Pandemic App From Apple, Google

"The first Bluetooth exposure notification APP has launched in Virginia and it's called covert. Wise. The APP uses Bluetooth chirps to detect if you've been in close contact with someone who has tested positive while it's very easy to use or to really be effective in needs widespread adoption. Jeffrey Fowler Tech Columnist at The Washington Post joins us for this useful APP with very little privacy risk. Thanks for joining US Jeffrey. Wanted to talk about this APP out of Virginia, it's called COVID. Wise. It's an exposure notification APP using Bluetooth on your phone. So you might have some other contact tracing APPs with regards to corona virus. One is a Little Different Your Bluetooth sends out pins basically, and if you've come into contact with somebody for more than fifteen minutes and you're within six feet distance, the APP might tell you you've been exposed then you can go get a test all that. Usually we bring you on on the PODCAST Jeff, we're talking about privacy with apps and things like that, and in this case you've kind. Of, run. This thing through many tests and you've kind of come to the conclusion that your privacy really is an at risk and it would actually be a benefit if people were a lot of people downloaded this thing so we can try to keep this thing under control. So Jeff, tell us a little bit about covert wise and the tests you ran through it and what your conclusions were. Nobody was more surprised than me. The big problems that a lot of these APPs and the idea of using our phones to help track exposure to the coronavirus has had is that people frankly just don't trust tech companies and they just don't trust the government and I can't blame you companies have done very little to earn that trust and Edward Snowden taught us all that the government really can't be trusted either. But that said when Google and apple this. Spring got together and said, Hey, they thought that they had figured out a way to make our phones useful for figuring out if we were exposed to some of krona virus I was intrigued because they said they were going to build it from the ground up with privacy in mind. So we finally got the first of these in the US in the state of Virginia Colbert wise and it came out earlier in August and it was there I was like. We gotTA test. We got to see if they really live up to the promises and from everything we've been able to tell so far from our testing I've had thirty five colleagues at the post to live in Virginia and they're all testing for me. We learn two things. First thing we learned is that that doesn't seem to be really much of a privacy risk here these APPs Bluetooth to communicate to phones nearby they don't collect your location they don't. Send information about where you've been a her you've been in contact with to the government. It's actually a pretty clever system looked under the hood as well. Just just to double check they weren't sending out more information than than they claim and they work. That was the first thing. The second thing we learned is we still don't know actually this idea is going to work very well, those thirty five Washington Post colleagues who were testing them none of them got. -cation from this APP over a ten day period. Now, that could be for many reasons. It could be like they were just being really good at social distancing. It means that not many people around them. We're using it or it could mean that there's some problems with the idea that the phones can do this. But only way we're going to really figure that out is if a lot more people try it and that's one of the interesting parts experts estimate that up to sixty percent of the population needs to be using these exposure apps for them to. Be. Effective. So in Virginia that means they need about five million people to download it. But in its first weeks, covert wise got three hundred and eighty thousand downloads so very far short of that number needed. But there's other things that are kind of become a problem with this is in Virginia just by itself, but there's no big national system. So say you travel between states just whatever you come into contact with somebody else maybe using a different APP it's not this cold wise one. You know it's not all going to work. So seamlessly America's APP expeditionary. Strategy suffers from. Some of the same problems as the rest of our coronavirus strategy and that it's very local based very steep based. So as it set up right now in the United States, every state health department would have to make their own version of one of these APPs fads expressed any interest even though in other countries, it is kind of national government that's been working on these kinds of APPs. The good news is that about twenty states? Now have said that they're working on these kinds of Virginia three more joint it. So we already four out there in the wild and has been announced and effort that would make these absolute communicate with each other a little bit so that you could cross state borders with it. So that's a work in progress but not there yet,

"Delegates attending this month's Republican National Convention in North Carolina will undergo Corona virus testing and be required to wear masks Steve Harrison with member station W F A A reports, all 336 delegates will be tested twice once a few days before their trip and again when they check in. They must wear masks at all times, along with special Bluetooth equipped badges. That record where they've been. That will make contact tracing easier, says the convention's health consultant, Jeffrey Run. G. And it knows when other badges are closed to it on how long they are close to. Republicans had moved most of their convention in Jacksonville, Florida because President Trump wanted a full arena for his acceptance speech. The GOP then canceled the Jacksonville events because of the Corona virus, leaving only a small meeting of delegates in North

Innovating for Disability, Because You Have To

"Spoke with disability rights, advocate hub, and Girma, she's the author of Hobben the deaf. Blind woman who conquered Harvard law we relied on some of her personal tech to conduct our interview. So I'm blind access information best through Braille through my fingers. So I'm always looking for tech solutions that are touch based, and the specific advice I'm using is called a brown note made by a company called wear. It's a computer where instead of a visual display, their tactical display. There is a field where pins can pop up to form different ladders, different patterns of the pins, meeks, different Braille letters, and I read my fingers over the pins. The letter is quickly. And then I know what? Sad. So Gordon is here listening into the call and typing whatever he hears. That's connected to my Braille computer. So as you speak, he's typing I'm reading the words in Braille and then responding back with my own voice. Thank you. That's an amazing system and I understand you had a role in creating it. Can you tell me that story in twenty ten? The Braille note the Braille computer that I'm using right now came out and it was the first one with Bluetooth. Support. That sparked the idea of connecting the Braille Computer with an External Bluetooth Keyboard and that way when I meet somewhat hand them the keyboard and tell them just take therm words. Then I'm going to read in Braille and respond by boys. I started using this at Harvard law school. And in my book, I talk about the experience of using it for the first time with classmates with potential employers. Some people acting like it was really weird. But then others immediately understood because most people these days type emails texting. So especially millennials really understood and and we're able to connect with me. How often do you or others who are disabled have to come up with technology solutions on your own just simply because they don't exist yet. Disabled people constantly have to come up with our own solutions. Most things in this world are designed for non disabled white men who are right handed. The most designs is for a very limited segment of our population at everyone outside of that has to be creative and thoughtful and come up with solutions. Especially disabled people how has the technology evolved since you were in law school. You know why frail technology's not evolving very much in. It's extremely frustrating. I'm using ten year old technology. In some ways it's thirty years old technology. And I wish more companies would stop into this space and develop more brio technology tap into Hamernicks. There's an incredible market of blind disabled people who want to be able to access information through touch. And some men stream companies are taking the south. We you're getting more cell phones with haptic capabilities or smart watches with haptic capabilities, and we want to see more of this. And Digital. Braille is really expensive right now, we WANNA reduce that cost so that blind people all over the world especially developing countries can get access to frail computers, and if we can make Braille affordable, that would be the Holy Braille that's pretty wild. When you said that the technology is is ten or thirty years old you barely have a phone that lasts three to five years at this point is that Still, the technology is very sturdy. I appreciate that it's it's lasted quite a few drops. Your legal and your advocacy work has focused a lot on technology what other products are being developed now that you think are the most exciting or promising for deaf blind people or for other members of the disabled. Community. I'm really excited about self driving cars imagine the freedom, the independence I was talking to someone who works at one of these companies and he said Oh, you know a few years from releasing the cars. So maybe ten years from now will think about disability access. That's not how it works. You need to design disability access. Now not leader it's harder and more expensive to try to design disability access later. Using the example of self driving cars, what sorts of things that maybe aren't in that technology now, do you think should be included to make them that technology more accessible? For Self driving cars, WE WANNA make sure wheelchair users can easily get in and out of the cars independently. So the design of the doors, the does dine of the seats, the flexibility to move seats in and out the option to control the car with your hands through assistive devices like switch control, Braille computers there should be multiple options to access the information. We're in the midst of this deadly pandemic and lots of different groups that already were facing disadvantages in the workforce are feeling even more keenly. Now, how can technology help people with disabilities stay in the workforce during the pandemic? Technology is a collection of the biases of the developers. So it's really about the developers taking the time to imagine people different from themselves using their technology. The pandemic has increased pre existing barriers before the pandemic there were lots of videos online with no captioning. After the pandemic, there's still lots of videos online with no captioning lack of transcribes, image descriptions. All of these things were problem before the pandemic, and now that we're relying on the Internet more than before. Experiencing those barriers at a greater level. If the people listening to this could after hearing your voice, do one thing differently in their day-to-day. To create a more accessible world. What would that thing be? Encourage your organizations to increase hiring of disabled people if our workplaces were diverse. Specially tech companies if trump companies were more diverse and had disabled engineers and designers working there are products would be so much better.

Unpacking everything Samsung! (with TK Bay)

"Originally this week we were going to have high may on. As. He tweeted like his grandfather tested positive. So best wishes to him and his family he says that he's feeling okay. When you did get tested, he has he doesn't have the result yet, but he to get tested so that everyone is okay there But yeah, like just when when, when I was supposed to schedule The podcast with him this week to talk about unpacked, which is what this entire episode is about Yeah. He was dislike I'm actually getting tested right now and I was like Oh snap. Okay. So then when you and I went to hang out I, realized that you a you you, you made the right move because I don't have the Galaxy Watch. It was pure luck I. I didn't realize that people weren't getting them right away. Some people did but you know like Fisher I think got one but a fisherman Fedex stuff. Yeah. Yeah. A few people did and like you, you just realize that best buy already had it and then what I love is we're going to talk about this stuff a little later we're still in the check in. But when you never hanging out and you were showing me the watch was just like Oh, snap like how'd you get this and you're like best buy and then I was like a part of me was like I I'm pretty sure I'm GonNa, get a review unit still like whether it's jv pocket now but I have to wait for it and everyone else is doing their content on it. But. What I love those I was like how much is it and you're like I remember you said it quietly. Inexpensive it's it's more expensive than the Pixel for a that's how bad it is said. So quietly that I thought, you said one forty nine. Oh No. No no no. I my version is forced four, thirty, four, twenty, nine, ninety, nine, four, twenty, nine. Starts at three, ninety, nine for the forty one millimeter bt goes all the way to four eighty for the LT forty five I don't even want mobile connectivity on my. So here's a I have a gear frontier. That is, is Lt Model, I, bought it many many years ago so I haven't line that's on my account with T. Mobile. It's free was a promo that they did whereas the watch was free and I don't pay for it. So of had the line for ages I, don't use the gear is three frontier. If I'm going to pick up the watch which I actually Kinda liked this one so I would rather keep that. So replace the L. T. E. S. frontier with the watch three front What's it called forty-five it's a good design it's new it's updated has it's a lot faster and and of course, it's the What I like about it is de Notification Call Push. So my calls and my notifications pushed from my phone if I step away from it. And I can respond as if I'm responding for my phone on the watch. Okay. I'll tell you there's a little bit of a yeah. There's a good factor of it at obviously you have to pay for it data's crap. So but it's not like you're gonNA. Download anything, it. It's functional and I feel like that's where the function is for connectivity and remote connectivity cheers device. So we're going to get more into like other stuff with the watcher later, but there are a couple of other things I wanted to sort of throw into the check in. Picture froze for a few seconds. I'm sure it did. It happens. which is funny because like you would think that people like us who do this kind of stuff for a living our Internet connections would be great and whatnot. But here's the thing we have houses full of devices that are all on the same network and it's Absolutely I I have literally three Wi fi router sitting close each other one on a two point four, one on five one, six wile. That's nice. It is just Mesh Network in here. She was Google in my house. That's all we have actually what for this one system we're doing pretty well. No no it as long as you know your neighbors also, but I think in my area there's a lot. When I turn on Bluetooth or Wifi is lot networks. So everybody and their mom is on, it's a it's OK-.

New Xbox Series X Controller Leaks Suggest Potential Launch Date

"Soft new xbox series ex consul confirmed and leaked controller packaging via the verge Microsoft is rumored to be unveiling its second cheaper next xbox console. Console this month and it looks like it will definitely be called. xbox series s the verge has obtained photos of Microsoft's new. Next Gen. xbox controller, and white complete with packaging that mentions the xbox series s twitter user. Zach S was able to purchase the controller today and we've confirmed it's genuine. The new controller was sold on a resale site today and side of the packaging notes that the controller works with xbox series X and. S Consoles make has not officially unveiled. An xbox series s yet nor has the company even confirmed that white xbox series x controller mysterious white xbox series controller also appeared online last month complete with the new deep add texture triggers in new share button. This league matches the previous controller leak and retail packaging suggests that this could be appearing in store. Soon, quote we have a lot in store for xbox in two, thousand, twenty, eight share. You says a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to the verge. Announce at this time. So if you look on your twitter mice where timely in particular and I'm sure you're well, there are a lot of videos of these controllers being embarks in touched and flipped around, and I'm not sure we're. Watching right now. Yeah. Not sure where they're all exactly coming from I thought I had read something about stores being looted. And the thought is maybe they were in stock at that best buy that was being looted. Who knows because he rumored released? There was a rumor that the series was going to come out in August I believe. So if that was to be believed or maybe it's gotten pushback. Anyway, there's some rumored evidence that these controllers could be in at stores who could say, but if you look at the controller itself, it was I. Think you actually have an elite controller on your desk, don't you because the D pad for this new one looks very similar to that I mean at least it as it from this photo, and there is a share button in the middle and other than that. It looks incredibly similar. It does. But just fine with me. Honestly I. DON'T I. Don't mind that. I'm happy to dual shock is getting a makeover. 'cause that controllers always made my hands cramp after too long. The xbox controller I have no issues with. It's actually why it's my preferred to play on I the controller so much more comfortable. Yeah. My hand in twenty in two, thousand and ten, and prior to that, I really liked the playstation controller because smaller small hands. But since my like my hands kind of changed I find the xbox like much more comfortable like. There's something about it just works better for me now. Yeah. I. Think this Controller Looks Great. I love the white. Hat is something I might have to get used to. But I know it's something that I think a lot of gamers particularly more sports focus players want those those little side pieces between the deep had to do specific move sets on. It is weird that there's so many of them out in the wild, and like that one person posted that they bought one on offer up for thirty five dollars. That was a great deal I was like that's a steal for any controller. Let alone controller for an unreleased. Be. Somebody who didn't know what they had just like it's an exodus because it's a hot troll. I. Stole this new to offload it quickly. Pretty much. I, would I feel like that is when you know it's stolen merchandise selling it for thirty dollars and some weird website just like sure I'll take that and they just think it's probably the. Current, xbox controller because they look so similar. Wonders. Like. Are you buying Oregano here? You know it was. Like take an xbox controller. Crack Open, do some modifications externally. So to try to cheat a unreleased controller. Or is this is putting a button. Sensitive. briquetted thing they. They did some modifications to like and make up that story I don't know. La Interesting for people who aren't familiar with what offer up is essentially like a, let's go or a craigslist where you post pictures and then people in your vicinity can buy items from you and I've seen some very suspicious television posts on there before like come to my garage where I have all of these TV's in boxes that you can buy. One hundred dollars and I'm like. A feels like you took that off with trucks. I. Didn't take anything. But I think that this is, oh, sorry, go ahead. Bro. Say the back of the box. There are also photos of that. If anyone's interested, the deep has just described as refined. Yet familiar input nothing really there and the share button and share content seamlessly, and then it goes on about how there's. And Bluetooth support and the textured grip, and that's kind of it.

A Japanese Robotics Startup Has Invented a Smart Mask That Translates Into Eight Languages

"Everyone has gotten in on the mask game. It's more surprising to find a brand that isn't making their own masks than ones that are some places are going beyond slapping a logo on a piece of cloth however, and are innovating in really cool ways that will help us out as mask wearing becomes a long term thing like the various companies and individuals who have been working on fully or semi transparent masks so that the deaf and hard of hearing can read People's Lips. Another is a Japanese startup who wants to make masks even more functional and useful. They have made a mask that can translate into eight languages. DONUT robotics created the see face smart mask that with the help of its corresponding APP transcribes and translates what the where is saying. It also amplifies their voice, which I think is really cool. I. Don't know if masks actually muffle people's words this much. If I just relied on lip reading and facial expression context more than I thought I did because I have a heck of. A time understanding people in masks, the see face smart mask works by using a microphone embedded into the mask which connects to the wearer's phone via Bluetooth available languages for translation are Japanese and Chinese Korean Vietnamese Indonesian, English Spanish, and French. The mask does have one fatal flaw. However, it doesn't actually offer protection from the corona virus and is meant to be worn over a more suitable mask, and this is because the mask itself is made out of plastic and silicone. So it has to have some breathing holes bell suit suffocate. Which I get, but the does seem to sort of negate part of the point of having it as a mask. The translation software in the mask was originally designed for a robot named Cinnamon, but the team at donut robotics decided to pivot to. Win The pandemic hits and that to me makes it seem like having the translation tool be inside the mask is maybe not necessary, and since it doesn't work as an effective mask anyways what are we doing here but I am not an engineer and also it sounds like the company pivoted because they got hit hard by the pandemic and needed a way to stay afloat. So they leaned into a trend that they knew would work the. Cinnamon robot stood out from competitors because it was user friendly and the translation software even worked well in noisy environments and that software reincorporated into the mask quoting CNN uses machine learning developed with the help of translation experts and specializes in the Japanese language. Don't robotics CEO to Sukey. Ono claims the technology is better than Google API or other popular technologies for Japanese language users because most competitor APPs focused on translating to and from English and quotes. The company has run two successful crowd funding campaigns to get the product off the ground raising the equivalent of about eight hundred, thousand dollars from those campaigns and the plan to start distribution in Japan by the end of the year releasing five to ten thousand masks at forty to fifty dollars a pop. And while there has been interest from both the US and the UK, they don't expect to expand overseas until spring twenty, twenty, one at the earliest. But I am sure that plenty of other startups will be working on other cool masks with similar useful features. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

"I'm Jason. Howell. And I'm Ron Richards. And I'm a very flustered, Florence I on today's. Days in it. Street. They're not only in the android world, but just like in life. It has been a three time and honestly I do feel like after a couple of weeks of like slow Android News, all of a sudden, the past two days like I could not keep the plates spinning. I, was like Whoa and this and this. and. It's not because tomorrow. Me and James Nafta to get up early. Wait this way me and Jason have to get up early. It's going to be regular time for you. There's a Samsung, event. Yeah. It's GonNa be nuts like seven am and mind you like as I've said, many times at this point, he probably sick appearing me say my podcast studio station is in our bedroom. So it's basically like kicking failure, the roof before had so that I can make sure that I'm up at ready for seven. Am Call to follow Samsung News which there's going to be a lot. So I'm definitely looking forward to, but what a week from Samsung to Pixel, which we'll talk about later. This is a big. I mean. We've got so much phone news happening right now. It's kind of ridiculous. I mean, it's really weird after what has been a quiet summer like it is just like it went from zero to sixty late yesterday after job total. Good. which is Kinda normal riot. Usually, it seems like about the time of the the note event is win this next phase of the phone season kicks in, and then at this point, we don't hear from Google until like Tober, but this time that's different. Anyway, we're. We're spoiling the the the ending here or at least the middle. Before, we get there. We've got some news to talk about taking us to the news. please. We have a week purchased doesn't even violence? Say it. I don't blame them at all. I, don't blame me at all burke. Let's get into the news like we said it's been head-spinning these past couple of days. We'll get to the pixel stuff in the hardware blocks of stay tuned. We haven't forgotten about that but I off. One of the hotly anticipated things all summer in the world of android. In fact, a couple of weeks ago. When Dave Burke from android. From Google and Android was on the show, he teased that nearby share file sharing aspect of android would be rolling out soon, and soon is today how about that? So, basically, if you're familiar with IOS airdrop this airdrop for android. It's file share between ANDROID devices. You can share files, images, links, etc. Through fast transfer process. You can select your visibility determine who can see you and share with WHO and who can't It does work off line, which is fascinating. Transfers by either Bluetooth, Bluetooth L. E. Web RTC, or peer to peer Wifi, whichever is fast as and you can check out hands on android episode twenty, one for deep dive into the new feature, which I'm sure we'll get you as Jason goes deep into file sharing with nearby sharing. Jason. What is your experience in nearby sharing? Is it? What is it living up to the hype? I. Think, Yeah. I think in in my experience with it and try and I should I should stay that really I've only used it around the time when I was creating the hands on android episode. So I haven't found myself in a situation since then or like I needed to use nearby sharing to send a file to myself and I certainly haven't found myself in a situation where I'm sharing directly like with my wife like quite frankly we're not going anywhere. So we're just here. Why, don't you just send her files Willy Nilly because think about it. That can be fun. We have nothing going on right now, and you know your everyone's stuck at home and you know. Why not send her random files, sent her gifts in memes through the nearby share and. Response like I. think that's a good idea. I'll ask her to set it up because it would be weird if I just set it up and started dropping are things that suddenly appeared out of nowhere. It up and it'll be it'll be a nice way to kind of lighten the load on weeks such as this one but. was going to say about nearby sharing is in my time playing with it. For that episode hands on Android I tested transferring a good amount of files, large files, small files, and yet it works pretty seamlessly. Just kind have to do the work in advance of setting it up to say, Hey, I, trust this person's device, and then if you happen to have your device near near an that person's device at any given point, you can get a little notification. Notification. That says, Hey. So and so's nearby and it makes it really easy for you just tap and share directly to them because you've all you both already kind of open those gates to say, yes, this is possible.

"bluetooth" Discussed on The Internet of Things Podcast - Stacey On IoT

"For bluetooth. Basically, this means that your bluetooth low energy radios. They will now be able to tell where they are within about a few centimeters, which is pretty cool. It is. And I'm glad Ken is here because I wrote a post this week about what I think we could use this technology for security, but he has to say about the new feature in general the features called direction finding so with current bluetooth solutions like you may have like a bluetooth tracking device like a tile or a tracker or whatever you might have and you can use a mobile app, and it will track the signal of that tracking device and kinda tell you how far away you offer Manezh, you get closer, you may find loss keys, for example. That's what I use a bluetooth tracker for my house direction. In finding future takes it to a whole 'nother level and could whilst gonna range of potential possibility such as indoor positioning asset tracking again like you said down to the center meter level. My thought is and maybe I'm thinking too hard on this. This could be huge for the smart home. And I don't think the smart homes gonna see it right away. It's going to be more like asset tracking inventory type solutions at first. But if it comes to the smart home think about this you can have actual personalized presence detection with this to the centimeter level. Meaning if I have a phone with this technology, or maybe a device like clip on to myself, or I put in my pocket, for example, mice smart home could actually tell where I am exactly in the house. And who I am because I would register that device to me. So now instead of like using a camera where motion sensor that says there somebody in that room. It could say, hey, Kevin is in his office in this spot. And when he's in the spot, he likes this music playing and this light on this temperature. And so on. This could bring a lot more context to this more home is at least that's what I'm hoping you are right to hope for that. It will take a little while. Now the way you've suggested it could work so one of the challenges with this new feature is that handset makers are going to have to adapt their phones to put the scent. So in the consumer side, you're not gonna see it on handsets until people get new bluetooth chips in there, which means new handsets. So that's a little ways out on the industrial side. There are actually companies already using precursors to the standard. So that's happening already for asset tracking with your idea what you would have to do is basically by a whole new cluster of goods. So you would have your dedicated thing, your clip on belt loop, whatever thing, and then you would have to have some sort of beacon infrastructure that's new around your home with the appropriate antennas, but that could happen. And so we'll look for that. We'll see and no supposed to happen actually with beacons. Yes. It was. Again, you guys will enjoy the interview with kids, and he goes fairly deep on all of this stuff. And you know, explains what happens with beacons, which hey, speaking of beacons is a weird use case. But you know, I think is weird because it doesn't feel like the most efficient but ways is using bluetooth beacons in New York City's tunnels and bridges where you might lose your GPS signal. They're putting beacons every forty meters roughly. So that's what forty two meters per mile, forty two begins per mile. Yes. And at a cost of twenty eight dollars in change. It's about eight thousand dollars a mile to implement this in the ideas, you could be able to say, hey, when you're driving through there's a beacon inside a car driven by someone. I've not sure who and that would actually tell you how long it takes to traverse that particular bridge or tunnel. I get it. I just don't think this is the best radio technology for that. But maybe it is well in through few alternatives to good GP. PS signal. And when you think about the tunnels that they have in New York City as well as the GW be George Washington Bridge has two levels..

"Was spin rights saved. One of our ATM's. He sent this on the twenty sixth of July. He said Steve, I've been an avid listener since the beginning of security. Now, thanks to you and Leo for all, or thanks to you and Leo for all of your hard work. He says, I wanted to thank you for making this splendid product. It's saved my neck. We had a very high traffic ATM hard-drive fail. The tech said they could not make it for forty eight hours. He says, I pulled a hard drive from the ATM and ran spin right on it. It fixed enough of the drive that I could clone it to an SSD within three hours. Now we have one of the fastest ATM machines in the north. Keep up the good work, Joshua, those gotta feel good to get a message like that. I, I get them all the time and I'd really do love it to be able to, you know, just like here spend right? Just fixes the drive and then auto off people go again, yeah, for from forty-eight hours to three hours. Nobody especially on high traffic ATM. He was like really important. Yeah. You don't want any down. Time on the like that that's that's people's money including your on. So tell me a little bit about bluetooth because I'm like late late to the game on on bluetooth, at least when it comes to headphones anyways. I mean, I, I have bluetooth devices that I use on a regular basis, but I've been reluctant to use bluetooth over the years because I find it not as dependable dropouts. There's always the potential for security risk, you know, depending on what's going over and this definitely ties into that well, and you got to keep them charged. So there's that also, and you know, and I actually, I'm a little concerned about the health risks. I mean, you're sticking a radio in your ear canal as true, and it's like. Let other people do that. I just think I'd rather not do that myself. But bluetooth of course has lots of other applications it's become because it is high speed and low power and is sort of a gun. A nice range compromise. You know, NFC is deliberately like contact near field radio. And of course, WI fi is deliberately long range, radio, bluetooth sort of fits right there in the middle and at thirty feet or ten meters as the official distance. And then there are some like, you know, some some extended distances, but it has always been. There's always been a vulnerability. In fact that the the research paper which was published and will be given is titled breaking the bluetooth pairing fixed, coordinate invalid curve attack. And I, our listeners have heard me say many times in the past that the only way I think it is secure to pair bluetooth devices is to walk out into the middle of a large parking lot, which like on a Sunday morning when it's empty or maybe go into the middle of football stadium that is physically isolate yourself from the environment and do the pairing because pairing bluetooth pairing is the. The moment of Volmer ability. That's when there is stuff happening. That is, that is the devices finding each other and exchanging cryptographic material and and deciding did light like agreeing upon a secret key, which they will then use for everything else. That's the weakness. That's the the moment of maximum vulnerability. Now, the protocol works to minimize that there's all this, you know, each side displays a six digit code to the other or one side as a screen in the other side has a key, and so you you enter the number that one side is showing. The idea is they're, they're trying to use an out of band communication that is visual real world. World communication outside of the radio band. But there are many instances where you don't have that luxury. You've got like an IOT device. You know it's a, it's a a door lock or well, a door lock might have a keypad, so that's a bad example, but let but like a a, a, a sliding window lock where it's just a little bag minute that is gonna Beuys a bluetooth connection to the home hub, and it doesn't have anything. So pairing is a is a is always been problematical. And so that the spec overtime has has evolved through bluetooth while up to four point zero and four point to continually working to improve the the pairing technology. So. The the, the crypto used in the latest bluetooth is elliptic curve divvy Hellman e. c. d..

"Richard implementations than anything else but that's just my guess indeed hand this is a little bit of sad security news but the rescue buttons that people by these are bluetooth base buttons that women or protesters or anybody who worries about personal safety you can press the button on these and they're supposed to alert someone with like hey i've arrived at this place or it might be like beep i being attacked help and it sends data from the device to your phone and then the phone sends usually a gps location so duo security has done research and they've found that unfortunately three major devices where safe revel are end the roar personal safety system known as athena all have some sort of compromised security so the best one is the athena from roar personal safety the other to have some issues on their bluetooth security so they can be you could be tracked using bluetooth on both of these other devices end they are subject to denialofservice attacks end this is a problem i think the denial of service attack is probably not some random guy who's going to bug you it's probably more for like a government using it against protestors but the fact that you can be tracked via bluetooth is a problem because this is the kind of device that women who have stalkers often look for and if you have a stalker it's possible that they will actually just instead he's a track you a new idea the actual problem is trying to solve actually contribute to the problem yeah so we'll linked to this in the show notes because it's an interesting study is it's an important issue i think i mean i've never bought one of these but i have considered them and i have a daughter and i'm like hey you know it might be nice for her to have just quick button although she probably just forget it.

"You journal uh i had a question i'm talking on the sense i'm driving truck i'm talking on a hands free bluetooth headset and you were talking about the cell phones earlier uh causing cancer with the radiation and i was wondering if bluetooth co uh does the same kind of thing and then also a related question is i also have one of them pocket cc radios which i like and does that when it's when you're carrying around your pocket does it exudes radiation to the cancercausing so the bluetooth them the radio that's my question the radio i don't think so but to the bluetooth i'm not sure what do you think dark well i think if you i think you need to experiment with these types of things um if you feel headaches um you know some any physical effects from using it uh and you have any problems you don't know the cause of you have to experiment with these types of things and just stop using it for a while in and see if you feel some improvement in the way you feel any changes i mean that's the way you have to experiment with these things on yourself these are lifestyle we call themself studies we you just try it on your cell change something you're doing and see how it makes you feel um so that's all i could recommend about that you know the bluetooth is in the year almost twenty four seven for most people yeah we find that song comfortable i mean i i couldn't do that myself i i don't think you should be the bluetooth in the year uh i mean it it sounds like there could be you're achieving and it's very close to your brain and add to it doesn't sound like a good thing but i can't say you know i don't have any evidence right now to see one way or the other it's just into to leave logic common sense says to me you you know i would avoid that personal.

"Audio degradation on bluetooth i know that i've heard audio degradation on bluetooth but is that what's what's going on there is it that the bluetooth send and the bluetooth received don't support the same file format quality and therefore there is there is there is some sort of compression happening what's crowd definitely in in bluetooth audio especially when we're talking about higher quality bluetooth codex we're still talking about very heavily compressed streams of data me look up this back on even bluetooth five and while i guess bluetooth five would open it up more for for 24 bit audio by blue most people are still on bluetooth four point two for their phone and the headphones that they're using i mean both both pieces need to support that ability to talk at bluetooth five levels by when you're dealing with that when you're dealing with bluetooth four point two even if you have something like a p t acts it's just a smarter kind of compression it's kinda like going from each two six four t h die to six five you can squeeze more information and to a smaller space but you're still squeezing you're still squishing but a major issue with that is also just the fact that wireless interfaces are prone to having inconsistent signals you don't have that with the cable now there's a reason why pro gamers still connects directly over ethernet to some kind of router for their for their put it's because you know on average they're getting a fastspeed but there will be peaks and valleys an and the cable you're going to minimize that significantly more and this is also why you know i i feel were just maybe a year too early for getting rid of headphone jacks um i wanna see good consumer solutions for you sbc wall were doing this hardware transition as he has a value bluetooth headphones jay say how they're going to say a pixel c but we need both we need by and wireless wireless his way more convenient i want wireless when i'm lifting weights in working out but there are so many more times where i am listening to podcasts or i'm.
