Is Bob Iger back as Disney CEO? He abruptly resigned from the helm in February

"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is Matt Felony and Matt. We've talked about Disney a lot lately because Disney is one of the most all companies are exposed to this this disaster from this pandemic and the apparent absence or inability of our leadership to the White House to figure out how to address it but Disney is as we've talked about hotels theme Parks Bob. Iger resigned abruptly. It seemed to many people including me as CEO staying on his executive chairman in February And you know this is just the strangest thing because there was just a an article that Ben Smith at the New York Times wrote in which he says that Bob Iger has now having said that he was handing the reins to Bob Capex the head of the theme parks making him. Ceo THAT BOB. Eiger has now basically resumed running Disney are. I don't know about you. I haven't seen any announcement of that or any kind of indication that there's been a change in leadership it seems important to me. It's a huge public company and a very difficult moment and and yet you know in the same column He. This author. Ben Smith says Bob Eiger has took his eye off the ball and was more worried about his legacy. But now he's back sort of like Hallelujah. I sort of feel like what really happened here because this narrative is making no sense to me and there's a lot of why whether Bob really planned that resignation as CEO and then came back. I'm there's nothing in this world that will make me believe that was planned. Yeah it's interesting because Disney clearly not clearly but some might say. Disney was responding to that article when they put out a release a few days. Later saying that Bob Shape back the other Bob Who was elevated to the CEO position in February is joining the board of directors? Which many had said was planned all along but I think the indication there was. You know the new Bob is actually in charge. It's not the old Bob. Even though the whole Bob seems to be you know giving his strong advice and being involved in these major decisions literally saying like I'm back he's like a signaling in an email or something to this journalist that he's back and I'm like what but go on. That's the question you do have someone who has decades of experience at the Walt Disney Company there in that executive chairman position and probably feels a little bit of remorse that he left this job right as the proverbial s hit the fan and a lot of people speculated. That either did know what was coming when he did that. You know at the time. He stepped down. The Shanghai Disney park had already closed due to the virus and many experts. Were saying. Listen this is a couple of weeks away from being a global pandemic. Even if the American government wasn't saying so at the time the experts were and had that information many thought that that timing was abrupt and out of nowhere and then all of a sudden were in the middle of the biggest threat to The Walt Disney Company. In perhaps ever so. I think there's probably a little bit of remorse going on there and I think there's probably a little bit of Bringing the guy with the expertise to actually manage this very very difficult time. How about giving some clarity at? I wonder if the board didn't say excuse me. What did you just do? And how is this Bob? Shaping supposed to run the theme parks because as far as I know still no successor named for that. I mean they're closed but that's not like that doesn't mean there's no duties associated with that you know how. How is this guy now running the whole whole company? I you know I'm old enough to remember. When Michael Eisner having had a very supine board for a very long time finally had gotten enough people upset that the board turned around and ultimately dismissed him. So it's not that the board cannot be awakened in in a situation like this. I just find this to be an incoherent narrative and I've never seen such credulous analysis. I guess people who who who in the observer the media world and had had mickey mouse sheets on their bed when they were growing up or something. Because I don't think any other company would be getting the benefit of the doubt that Disney has gotten. Yeah I guess we'll see as this pandemic causes more injury to the company. How big a role. Eiger will ultimately play. That's delanie former editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one. Thirty on the

Hollywood in Crisis: Producers, Theater Workers, Crew Members Brace for Coronavirus Fallout

"Around the globe. Hollywood is shutting down the production of scores of movies and TV series and that means a huge number of crew members are suddenly unemployed. Many of those who lost their jobs are assistance and writer's room studios in agencies who might not qualify for pay or health benefits during a shutdown. Liz Alpers TV writer and a former assistant. She's the creator of pay up. Hollywood and I asked her how her organization started half. Hollywood is an organization that started in response to a lot of these system abuses and low wages that were going on in the entertainment industry and our goal is to shine a light on some of the abuses and outdated practices that have been going on and do whatever we can to fix it and bring assistance and other support staff up to a living wage while also radically aiding the abuses they're still going on in the workplace. So let's talk about what's going on in the workplace right now. More than seventy TV and film shoots so far. Shut down but when you add it all together probably looking at thousands of people below the line who are suddenly out of work. Do you think that's about right? I think that number's rising every day. So some of those people might be full-time studio employees. They might be casting directors or maybe somebody who works in post production. But I'M GONNA have to assume the majority are freelancers. They go from show to show kind of the backbone of Hollywood's GIG economy how might that latter group B. added disadvantage if they're laid off especially for the freelancers who are not part of any of the unions. These are people who don't have any sort of Cushion to fall back on often. They're living hand to mouth often. They're being paid lower than anyone else on the crew and they are paying for their own health insurance. It's not provided through union. They're the ones who went stuff like this happens. They don't really have anywhere else to turn. There are also ten ninety nine employees Who Don't get to pay into unemployment insurance and so they don't receive unemployment benefits when you major shutdowns like this happened even though it's never really happened before in the event that movie is cancelled or TV. Show ends what they have in their bank account is all they have to survive on until their next GIG. I have read that some of the things that have been considered our pain. People compensation for a couple of weeks but based on a forty hour work week. But there's almost no such thing as a forty hour work week during production. A lot of the compensation is tied to overtime when people are working sixty eighty hour weeks so that extra pay which can be huge if that goes away even if you're getting a paycheck for a couple of weeks it would be a fraction of what you might typically take home correct. Yeah that's connected honestly. Most people who work in production are given sixty hour. Workweek guarantees so by saying that we will pay you for a forty hour workweek. You're taking away. Twenty guaranteed hours if you're making say minimum wage of fifteen dollars an hour. That's about an additional three hundred dollars a week that you're losing and that's a huge difference. That's the difference between being able to pay your rent. Pay Your bills. Maybe you know by your kids food. If that money goes away you have nowhere else to turn and especially in a situation like what we're facing now where everything's uncertain. No one knows when production's going to be coming back you're essentially digging a financial hole and you don't know when you can stop we're talking with Liz Alpert from pay up Hollywood about unemployment in Hollywood. Your organization has helped start a crowd funding campaign. What kind of people do you think are most in need of help? You know honestly I think across the board. There are just people in need of health. It's it's the workers if the production folk we're focusing on the support staff because that's who our organization is fighting for but beyond the support staff. There are there crew members. There are studio assistants. Are Office Workers? Who have been laid off without pay. So it's really everybody. And even though we started this go fund me we're still urging the studios in the employees in the entertainment industry to continue compensating all their employees. Because right now the employees are the ones that needs to be taken care of and the businesses profit because of the hard work of their people so right now they need to be stepping up and offering financial protection and support throughout this time of uncertainty. It also feels like this is a moment where income disparity in Hollywood and probably around the world could be brought into much sharper focus so we have studio heads and CEO's who make tens of millions of dollars. Disney's Bob Iger may nearly fifteen hundred times. What the average is the employee makes and whole foods which is owned by Amazon. The richest man in the world. Jeff bezos worth. A hundred billion dollars has been asking it staff to donate their time offer others who might be sick. And I'm wondering if we're to step back might be a conversation that could follow after this is all over. You know. This is a conversation that's been had for years so it's not that these conversations haven't happened. It's that the world hasn't taken notice yet. And so what I think needs to happen is for the public at large to understand that we are facing a severe income disparity where the people at the bottom ten to pay the most in situations like this and who are at the most at risk and get their situations never change. They're they're never give an ounce of relief instead. They're told that they simply have to work harder to dig themselves out of these financial debts that they've accrued.

Disney CEO Bob Iger Steps Aside; Bob Chapek Named New Head

"Let's move onto Disney some big news. Disney CEO BOB. Iger is stepping down as CEO but will remain executive chairman until twenty twenty one. Now Bob Chepe pack will take over. Chepe heck was the chairman of Disney parks experiences and products. He's been at Disney for a long time. Twenty seven years and we knew was going to step down. Yeah but still. This is a bit of a surprise in who the new CEO is. Yeah a lot of people thought you know be Bob. Eiger came out last year and he put something called the ride of a lifetime and he basically forecast that he was at the he was at the end of his time as CEO of Disney. The you know that he would be stepping down. It was not in the middle of the route of lifetime. This was kind of a a foreshadowing. The timing is really odd again. Given the corona virus and Disney Disney parks worldwide or about thirty percent of the revenue of the total profitability of the company. Like this is a big deal yet. A lot of people didn't realize you know the thought that the next leader from Would come maybe from Disney plus from the from the video side and they didn't they went and tapped a guy who's been at the benefit the parks. Yeah I happen to think. It's all a big conspiracy just to keep the Bob's in power feels like a snap. It feels like a snub to someone like Kevin Mayor. Who's been heading up Disney streaming service and Disney for so long has been saying streaming Disney placid future of Disney and to bring somebody in who has experienced running the parkside. The experience I've Disney is an interesting choice and the market doesn't seem to like it. But I I kind of do minus the Bob Bob thing strange but I think it's a good thing because as you said it's the parks in the experience that has been driving Disney throughout his entire history. And you don't want to put everything on streaming and ignore the extremely profitable important aspects. That is the Disney culture. That's created from experiences like parks the thing that's really interesting. And the Bob Eiger it. It's interesting to me that when Bob Eiger became the CEO. I don't know if you remember this but it was not a popular pick at all. It was not you know he was thought of as being the wrong guy coming from the wrong industry but what he has been. He's been a master capital alligator. Bought Pixar Lucasfilm's Fox Studios Marsa Marvel Marvel Tuck in acquisitions exactly exactly me transformational acquisitions. But people didn't realize you know people did not give him the credit in advance that that was what he was going to do. And I think one of the reasons that they went to the direction that they did is the thing that Bob Iger did that.

Disney's New CEO

"Disney CEO BOB. Iger is handing over the keys to the magic kingdom immediately. What I couldn't maybe it's not really. He's not going anywhere. I know he's not going to play with this beautiful succession. It's so ordered. It's just weird that it comes down to show. I'm leaving today but anyway I ever stepped down. I WanNa hear whether you've I wanna hear your your you actually no one. I want to hear some of your water cooler scuttle butt. Todd you give you my theory and go wild whatever. Go while. You're seeing that if anyone doesn't know this my son was yesterday afternoon. Bob Stepping down as Disney CEO. It's effective yesterday and replaced by Bob. Pick which has done a good job at theme parks. I guess he's been there a long time. Head of the company's Global Parks and unlike NBC. I was thinking. Wow he's not content creative guys a park that we think of it differently at comcast I think parks are important but it was almost like a secondary thing that we did comcast got when they took me started with garden. Graham Cast Disney started with good argue both NBC Universal and and Disney have been very good at coordinating those parts. Were you surprised the parks guy would run the entire creative operation of Stephanie's yes I I I don't know anyway. He will report directly to either. Who's going to stay on through his contract as Executive Chairman and basically the guy is going to report to the board so the his contract goes through the end of twenty twenty one he been. Ceo For fifteen years overseeing a tremendous growth at Disney acquisitions like Pixar Marvel Lucasfilm and most recently Fox's well as his shift to streaming with the launch of ESPN plus Disney plus in an interview exclusive interview on CNBC. I explained his decision was we looked at the businesses. We felt we have a great set of assets. We have a great strategy. What's next and what was next in terms of my own priorities is making sure that the creative pipeline and the company was really rich that all our creative engines were working extremely well and I wanted spend more and more of my time on that. I'm not sure I want to be. Ceo Virus either so with a theme park. Here's my theory of the case. Okay bye-bye signs a new employment contract as part of the transaction to buy Fox Rupert Murdoch stipulates that he has to be there. Okay Hey that him. By the way we went wild speculation that prevents him from running for president. And if you're really into wild speculation there are people out there that are suggesting somehow that this is some kind of entree to some kind of a Bloomberg Eiger of now. It's taking that off the table. That's crazy however he's still going to be in this place. Becky said it. He's not going anywhere he's effectively. The two bobs are basically running this place. Bob's reporting to him. So if Bob the new Bob about doesn't work out for whatever reason Bob Eiger is still there. He's also seen many transitions where people are sitting in waiting. Why wait it's possible? And I hope I for the new Bob Sake that it works out but if it doesn't and we've seen this story by the way at salesforce just happened yesterday where the CEO. Kevin Block didn't work out so could another Kevin in this case Kevin Mayor Ultimate step up? That's the person everybody expected was gonNA take the job to me. The big question mark this morning is if you are Kevin May or running Disney. Plus are you staying in this job because you thought potentially that you were getting the top job to me. Those are the issues that are being talked about around. The water

Bob Iger steps down as CEO of Disney

"There's news today that Bob Eiger is stepping down immediately as CEO of the Walt Disney company to make room for his successor and that is Bob JPEG who runs Disney's theme parks division last year Argo announced that he would step down when his contract expires at the end of twenty twenty one he will remain at the company as executive chairman and according to a Disney press release will direct the company's creative endeavors joining me to discuss the Disney news is Ben Fritz is the west coast bureau chief of the Wall Street journal he's also the author of the book the big picture the fight for the future of movies so Bob Eiger has mentioned several times that he was going to leave his current position what are we to make of the timing right now it's tough to tell exactly why what why the sudden change after all these years about what you're saying he was gonna leave it at night and then on saying he was gonna leave and delaying he delayed his retirement numerous times over the past decade and he's you know less than a year and a half into it his latest three year contract so it's kind of surprising in its day but on the other hand like it's very I gear to sort of do it do it all in secret and then all of a sudden announced to the world and in an unexpected way so his successor Bob che pack runs Disney's biggest business that is theme parks and consumer products what are we to make of his selection and were there other people who might have been competing for the job certainly our or other people like I think the biggest contender currently at Disney's Kevin Mayer who's running their new screening effort you know that's led by Disney plus he's piece insert top strategy except for the company for a long time you know with Kate Kate back amongst the current crop of executives that is a bit of a safe choice right he's running he's running sort of the traditional businesses like theme parks obviously business most associated with Disney as opposed to remaining which is certainly the future of Disney and you know by all accounts he pick is a very smart guy and a very competent guy but certainly is not so different sort of had like the the Christmas season as much of the house of a great public speaker of this you know Bob Iger's let's talk a little bit about what Bob Iger has done at the Walt Disney company I'm gonna name before deals Pixar's seven point four billion Marvel for billion Lucasfilm for billion and last year the Whopper twenty first century fox seventy one point three billion those are all kind of content movie TV deals what kind of studio is Bob Eiger leaving behind before we talk about the rest of the company I really mean highway I think anybody would have to say is sort of the most successful and tightly run major entertainment company in in America today because he's very focused on franchises they were ahead of the rest of Hollywood and it pops into their business on franchises as you said a lot of that to acquisitions of Pixar and Marvel and Star Wars and franchises are busy sort of at the heart of the movie business these days in an auger was somewhat ahead of the curve in realizing you can just keep selling something Netflix is that Disney would have to launch its own streaming service to compete just like Disney plus is already out there and it's you know is is certainly ahead of what we're seeing from his competitors like HBO maxim peacock which are still to come I think I think later this year so you have to say he's always been for media executive pretty ahead of the curve and and been a leader is not just Disney plus as part of the fox deal they got a portion of who lived in they bought out the rest of the portion of Hulu from Comcast so what does Disney focused on now in terms of taking on Netflix with streaming they have Disney plus they have who is that where a lot of their money and attention is going right now absolutely I mean the future of Disney as an intern came distributor is Disney plus Hulu and ESPN plus right those are it's three major streaming services and traditional TV businesses being shrunk rapidly that's for Disney's putting all its efforts and a lot of films such as going there as well so that if that is the future of Disney but yet the one business they have it certainly not shrinking is the one that's cheapest and overseeing which is part of the consumer products right while all traditional entertainment is being disrupted people still love to go to theme parks and Disney theme parks are more successful than ever these days I want to buy the toys as well so that's sort of the more traditional side of the business that is not being transformed by digital technology I think you can make the argument that theme parks have what's known in business as a wide moat there not a lot of competitors to theme parks but there is something called the corona virus and there are problems that theme parks and cruise lines of which Disney has a cruise line are also facing pressure so what is that business look like going forward and what does it tell us about how Disney values theme parks that Bob Chapek will be running the whole company well listen I think in the short run it's not a great moment to be running theme parks in Shanghai and Hong Kong is Disney does and to have cruise ships so that businesses under pressure right now but I you know presuming I hope we do get the fire under control I think everybody within these businesses will continue to be successful if they have been and you know popped out to tech has by all accounts and done a very good job running those businesses and he generated a lot of profit for the people to the company if that's that you set up for a lot of the revenue and profits comments you know streaming is the future of streaming is a money losing business for now and I think you know with disappointment Disney's kind of saying yes stream is important part of our future but Disney is still a company that that it that it's hard to it's about the experiences people have in our theme parks Bob I will leave a great track record I think the Disney company is a very impressive guy in person a great public speaker there's been some speculation about him running for political office do you think that's potentially part of his future anything's possible right I think you know as he's publicly said that he toyed with the idea of running for president this year and he decided it wasn't right for him but he's you know very politically active Democrat I would not be surprised if he's hoping that you know if the next president is a Democrat that he might you know have some kind of a role in it in an administration I think that's something he would probably love to do it with fifteen profile very well well I'm gonna assume he's not jumping in this year it feels like we really don't need another billionaire and the rice then Fred's is the west coast bureau chief for the wallstreet journal band thanks so much for going

We is chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company. Robert a Eiger also known as Bob Iger you can say hello on twitter at Robert Iger I G E R he is the steward of one of the world's largest media companies and some of the most respected and beloved brands around the globe since becoming CEO and two thousand five Eiger has built on Disney's rich history of storytelling an innovation with the acquisition of Pixar in two thousand six marvel in two thousand nine Lucasfilm in two thousand twelve and twenty first century Fox in two thousand nineteen. These are gigantic deals. And we'll talk more about him and he's also responsible for he was at the helm for the landmark opening of Disney's first theme park and resort in mainland China Shanghai Disney resort in two thousand sixteen. Look up that just to get an idea. If the magnitude it is incredibly large and speaking of incredibly large under his watch Disney's value has roughly five axed. I don't know what the exact stock doc prices at the time of this recording but quintupled quintupled the stock price and the value of the company always want to embrace new technology and that is a huge food asset and perspective that he's brought to the table Eiger has created an ambitious direct to consumer strategy.

So many many feet and Steve said we needed to have an exercise to discuss the pros and cons of Pixar being bought by Disney. At as I probably should have expected did Steve is the one that Hell the writing instrument and stood at the board so he was kind of the conductor of the session in more ways than one and he said something like you know you go first and I didn't really have the guts to go. I said no you go first. I and he wrote pros and cons. Just expected started listing a set of cons that were might seem like a mile long to me other were so numerous so much so that I said to him at some point when he had said to me. Well you want you name a few pros I said it hardly seems things worth it. You've listed so many cons that I don't really see how we go forward and he said No. No you gotta come up with a few and I I did. I suggested a few Actually to his credit by Recollect he had a couple as well but by the time we were done with the exercise of the list was still far more tilted in the con- direction than the pro direction. So I reiterate it to him my pessimism about doing anything basically saying Given the fact that the concert is some more numerous than the pros. Maybe there's just is just futile. He he said no not at all just sometimes a couple of really big pros. are far outweigh many many cons which I thought was quite interesting. He was able to look at this list and not count sheer number of items. But tally up the kind of the relative importance or lack thereof of the items uh-huh and that led to Im- saying something like let's keep the door open. We should continue to talk about this. What do we need to do next? And that led to my saying I think I need to visit Pixar. I think one of the way I put it see. What's under the hood suggesting that I look under ticket really close? Look at the engine. That was pixar the see whether it could get at whether the value was there For us to buy and some of the cons that Steve Put on this board were seemingly so strong that you couldn't possibly over over overturn them or outweigh them or counterbalance him in the sense. That somewhere Disney's culture world destroy Pixar. Your Board will never let you do it. And Ah Distraction will kill pictures. Creativity all caps. Thank you by the way you're quoting from my book. I don't have it in front of me. But yes those were all things that he said of those three but by the way. I think we both felt that it was not a foregone conclusion that the Disney board with with with let's do this but that was not the biggest deterrent. At least not that day. He had really really really a strong feelings about the culture of Pixar and the need to protect and preserve it and his experience with Disney while it might have been good at one point had turned horribly bad and he viewed Disney as an overly bureaucratic craddock overly process oriented not overly collaborative culture and he thought that if we owned Pixar that type of culture would obliterate the culture that was at Pixar and he felt the pixar culture was was more responsible for their creative success than any one thing or any one person and so and this actually played out in great detail as the negotiation were on his desire to make sure that even in a in a full-blown sale to Disney the Disney would.

So help with all that said please enjoy this wide ranging conversation with none other than Bob Iger Bob. Welcome to the show bill. Thank you very much nice to be here. I have been studying the path that you've traveled to get to where you are are and it's such an embarrassment of riches from an interviewing perspective. It's hard to know where to begin but I was Taking a look at a few you different chapters in your life and in your book and I thought we might start with if you could tell the story of Your White Board session with Steve Jobs and the the pro and con list and can give context however you think is best sure I called Steve Jobs With a crazy idea idea the idea being that a Disney should buy Pixar and one of the things I learned when you mentioned a Steve. You had a crazy idea. He he needs to hear it right away so even though I wanted to wait until him in person he forced me to tell him on the phone but instead of either laugh at me off the phone or rejecting it summarily. He invited me up to meet him at Apple To discuss it further and some time after the phone. Call that I had made I found myself sitting in the boardroom at the apple headquarters in Cupertino California Alone at a a long long table With a whiteboard on the wall that was as almost as long as the table itself. So many many feet and Steve said we needed to have an exercise to discuss the pros and cons of Pixar being bought by Disney. At as I probably should have expected did Steve is the one that Hell the writing instrument and stood at the board so he was kind of the conductor of the session in more ways than one and he said something like you know you go first and I didn't really have the guts to go. I said no you go first. I and he wrote pros and cons. Just expected started listing a set of cons that were might seem like a mile long to me other were so numerous so much so that I said to him at some point when he had said to me. Well you want you name a few pros I said it hardly seems things worth it. You've listed so many cons that I don't really see how we go forward and he said No. No you gotta come up with a few and I I did. I suggested a few Actually to his credit by Recollect he had a couple as well but by the time we were done with the exercise of the list was still far more tilted in the con- direction than the pro direction. So I reiterate it to him my pessimism about doing anything basically saying Given the fact that the concert is some more numerous than the pros. Maybe there's just is just futile. He he said no not at all just sometimes a couple of really big pros. are far outweigh many many cons which I thought was quite interesting. He was able to look at this list and not count sheer number of items. But tally up the kind of the relative importance or lack thereof of the items uh-huh and that led to Im- saying something like let's keep the door open. We should continue to talk about this. What do we need to do next? And that led to my saying I think I need to visit Pixar. I think one of the way I put it see. What's under the hood suggesting that I look under ticket really close? Look at the engine. That was pixar the see whether it could get at whether the value was there For us to buy and some of the cons that Steve Put on this board were seemingly so strong that you couldn't possibly over over overturn them or outweigh them or counterbalance him in the sense. That somewhere Disney's culture world destroy Pixar. Your Board will never let you do it. And Ah Distraction will kill pictures. Creativity all caps. Thank you by the way you're quoting from my book. I don't have it in front of me. But yes those were all things that he said of those three but by the way. I think we both felt that it was not a foregone conclusion that the Disney board with with with let's do this but that was not the biggest deterrent. At least not that day. He had really really really a strong feelings about the culture of Pixar and the need to protect and preserve it and his experience with Disney while it might have been good at one point had turned horribly bad and he viewed Disney as an overly bureaucratic craddock overly process oriented not overly collaborative culture and he thought that if we owned Pixar that type of culture would obliterate the culture that was at Pixar and he felt the pixar culture was was more responsible for their creative success than any one thing or any one person and so and this actually played out in great detail as the negotiation were on his desire to make sure that even in a in a full-blown sale to Disney the Disney would.

"Two by humans beat elite the product is beat elite not meet elite not beat be at but beat be et. He elite which you might consider an endurance superfood or what they would call a nitric oxide activator. Really all I care about is. This product was introduced to me several years ago by a multiple time world champion and has since been recommended to me by multiple to Paul World Class athletes and I use it. pre-workout for endurance training. That could be cycling. That could be swimming swimming. It is very rarely running but my subjective experience supports what some of the research would seem to indicate and that is that you can work out. Say Up to fifteen to eighteen percent longer if you're looking at high intensity interval training hit hit for instance and at Recovery Times so the Let's call it the refractory period for getting back to peak peak power output for instance. So I use this morning before a thirty minute somewhat intense swim workout and I have have found that particularly for someone like myself who has really terrible endurance. Genetically speaking my presets are horrible that it really does allow a ten to twenty percent boost in shorter workout performance. Especially although I do know people who've used it for four twenty mile runs thirty mile runs much longer endurance events and they've got all sorts of different points about the mechanisms of action and so on but suffice to say that it is a lot easier to consume bitterly than to eat the nitric oxide equivalent of six WCHS whole beats for instance much more rapidly simulated and it tastes great. I will also stain your pet polar bear or you're white cotton or your down pillows so don't spill it on anything but it does taste delicious. I tend to mix this into shake that I have pre workout in the mornings. So there you have it. I've used beat elite for a number of years now it is trusted by hundreds of teams athletes and organizations all over the world and it is also informed sport certified which means that it is certified to not contain any banned substances. So if you're very competitive athlete that is one fewer thing that you need to worry about so take your performance to the next level with beat elite.

"Do you think that he thought you angling for his job that it was unseemly. You think that's why it was so difficult. Well I wrote early on there was a moment that we had which I'm not sure he recalls that I was he was asking me to move out to Los Angeles and move up in the company and help him run it and at that point I confronted on having been somewhat unpredictable with me which that she did he dismissed that he was offering me a big role in any by the way and I got it was became presidency and it was a moment when he he he mentioned that he thought we were competing with one another and then that went away never never surfaced again by the time I was being considered to run the company. It was already a foregone John Conclusion that he was leaving. I was not competing with him. He made his decision to leave at the end of his contract and the board accepted it because the company had been through a lot and that believes that needed change and so actually in the process which was long and arduous for me. He was supportive of me through that to become his successor which is settled except except that Tom Murphy said you at one point. This is your writing. I hate to give bad news but you need to leave. Disney Michael doesn't believe I believe in you and he told the board. You cannot succeed him. You need to quit even though they formally stated that I was a candidate. I don't think anyone in the thought I would get the job and many of them thought I shouldn't that that must be an awful time two different times in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine a Tom. Murphy did call me until mashed leaves the company because they know hanging confidence in me which I didn't do. Unfortunately that call came while I was just starting a vacation I don't I don't the other way to start a vacation recommend that but then the succession process and when the board was considering me for the job seriously was six years was five years later in two thousand thousand four and I was Dr Course Fort Meeting I was not I was inside candidate the only one but the people thought that perhaps Disney's position at the time and some of its woes required outside change agent. I mean they were people on the board. Who didn't actually think that you should be the successor right and you had oughta go? Somebody like dozens of interviews when the process unfolded. I'm quite certain majority of the board believes that needs to go outside the company needed change because I had been to the company longtime for five years been it's president and COO that I did not in any way represent change. I was going to be more of the same but they've fortunately for me. They decided that they should consider me as the inside candidate and that led to fifteen interviews which is how long it took doc. Miller convinced them that even though I was an insider that I could bring change to the company and it was a long arduous process took a lot out of me I had a I had a panic attack in the middle of it while I was GonNa say yeah you write about thinking you actually were having a heart attack. Yes in the middle of it. I was obviously very very intent on getting the job it was important to me and many many levels and I mentioned earlier about believing and when South I believed in myself I believe I could do it and wanted it very much and it was getting so strenuous and it was so uncertain that at one point I take my my son to a basketball game and in the middle of it I felt a pounding on my tightness in my chest shortness of breath and feeling clammy I was certain I was having a heart attack of course stupidly instead of calling a medical professional. I got in the car and drove home with my son immediately saw. My doctor said that you're having a classic panic attack the most relaxing thing that anyone had ever said to me that point look today. I've got a fantastic job and had this wonderful experience and the pain of that process is so distant to me and so irrelevant in many respects although that subsequently talked about earlier having resist resilience and believing oneself and you know yes again. It's easy for me to say because doors constantly opened another lesson. which is that door opens walk through it? Don't hesitate even if your little bit unsure. Maybe I don't know that job is going to ask more of me than I might be capable. You've gotta walk through and you gotTa say yes. You know. Give me a chance since your book is about lessons and tip for leadership tips for leadership. You had an amazing easing moment when you first became CEO you went back to re innovate with one of the great disruptors. Steve Jobs Right Pixar had been with Disney. There was a rupture and you wanted to bring that back to Disney describe that I mean why did. Did you think that was the right thing to do. When I get the job and Disney animation has had a tough ten year run that great era had been over for a while and we haven't been able to find find ourselves so I knew when I got the job that if I had one priority in terms of business performance or creative performance it was Disney animation fix it and I could just tell my wife who is wonderfully supportive but every once in a while hits me in the face with some those those reality or statistics she said something like the average tenure of Co in America a fortune five hundred CEO's than three and a half years so basically get to to you know and don't have time and interestingly enough. Don't be timid. You don't take baby steps what she was saying to me. What happened was I got the job I called. Steve Jobs told him I was coming in one of the get to know him better. He wasn't really a believer because he had had a tough relationship with Disney started great but ended up tough and I said I got an idea at that point. The IPOD was out but the video ipod wasn't I had this notion of putting all TV shows on itunes because I was a big music listener and I had all kinds of playlists why not do it for TV and so I called them and gave him that idea. Which of course he had already. I never really gave Steve Too many ideas. Here's thanks Bob exactly and he said well. Let's talk and came down showed me this prototype of this cute little ipod with a little postage stamps green grave it was a little TV in it and he said if we put this out where you put your shows on I said yeah so we did a deal in five days. In suddenly he looked at me differently differently than he had before wow. I like technology. I understand that you know the importance of technology and creativity coming together and how powerful that can be the deal was done quickly and that gave me the right in a way both in in his eyes but also within me the confidence to call them and say I got a crazy idea how about sewing pixar history yeah and and and very sadly before the deal was announced. He told you something that only his wife and he knew the time that his cancer had come back reveals that you and you say Steve. Why are you telling me this. And why are you telling me now. I'm about to become your biggest shareholder and a member of your board and I think okay. Oh you the right given this knowledge back out of the deal. That's what he says to you. That must have been just another. One of those tragic detours gifts us again. I think it speaks to the unpredictability of of life and work careers but we had worked for months on not only negotiating the deal open my convincing the Disney board let us by Pixar for seven point four billion dollars. I was a brand new. CEO Did they think you would not I think when I first brought it up they they many thought I was nuts and the others didn't really think they had to worry about it because I thought it was so far fetched and then of course it's slowly became a reality and so when we ultimately did the deal plan to announce it which we did from Pixar. I went there and an hour before the announcement. Steve said let's take a walk and we sat on the bench. You put behind me and he told me that he we knew it had cancer some years earlier. I think he announced that it was secured. It was an operable form of the blue pancreatic cancer at that point in fact he talked about it in a great graduation speech that he gave at Stanford University Chrissy and when he sat me down he said I'm GonNa tell you something that only my wife Lorraine Anne. My doctor knows and that is that my cancer is back. The public did obviously did not know that AH and when as you said when asked him why he felt obligated because he was becoming our largest shareholder member of the board and they pixar it'd be so important to Disney to tell me that to give me a chance to walk away and you may have made a decision but what about your I mean. Obviously we know what happened but was your board hard to convince. No I well well. The board was was hard initially hard to convince that we should buy Pixar but but slowly but surely No. I didn't reveal that no what happened. was I ahead an hour or less by the time we sat down and he told me the clock was ticking on an announcement where we had actually gathered the press and investors to of either a call. I can't recall exactly but we were at Pixar and so I literally looked at my watch and realising. I have to make a decision in less than an hour. The board had already the approved it. Our board I'd already convincing was the right thing. He was the person well I quickly deal. They had to make snap judgment because Steve said. You can't tell anybody not like I can recall a meeting and again. The clock is ticking and the judgment that I made after talking to a more he you could just tell first of all everyone on newstalk was a fighter but in that brief conversation he said things to me that gave me the belief that if anybody was going to survive this for period of a long period of time it would be him and he said at one point he want. He was promised himself he'd be two sons high school graduation which was a few years off so so. I said listen. I'm not backing out. I don't even know how I could what I would say so. Let's do it and we did and I then was led in on a secret that the world didn't really find out about for a few years other people did but it was relatively private to Steve and his immediate colleagues at Apple and family and medical team. You talk a lot about your wife. Willow and at one point in the book you say about having to to move across country because you were based in New York. She's from New York here. I was asking another wife to follow me across the country again. Sacrifice vice her own career in the service of mine. I've been married before to a wonderful person name Susan who was a news producer in New York can I was moved by. ABC to La Nineteen Eighty nine she had to give up her job and did it for me and we moved our family and then we ultimately separated and got a divorced and I moved back to New York met Willow Willow at the time that I was being asked to move back to La by Michael Eisner and Disney was an anchor at CNN a longtime friend of mine even before I met you yes that's true that's true we go back a long way and she had a great job..

"I didn't want want to be in the business of playing it safe. I wanted to be in the business of creating possibilities for great this of all the lessons. I learned in that first year running. ABC Prime sometimes the need to be comfortable with failure was the most profound you earn as much respect and goodwill by standing by someone in the wake of a failure as you do by giving them credit for a success. Now I read this. I thought I think people think of failure is practically anti-american. It's really hard for for people to accept failure. How did you do that by the way I don't put a brand Ramdan failure. I don't call failure good anyway. but you know the business that we're in as a company is mostly creating telling stories and grant creativity. vity and creativity can't be reduced any way to science or math. There's just something's wrong something yes so there's a huge amount of risk in it and there's an inevitability to failure. Not Everything will work. Somebody's idea that has to be executed. Well and they're all kinds of factors that could stand in the way of executing something well or an idea basically not being fulfilled in so it becomes the not only inevitability but something you must learn how to process. I believe in the in in order to be great rate at creativity another words in order to take big bats in order to be bold in order to try new ideas you have to be unwilling to you have to be willing to fail because you know going into every one of these things. There's no guarantee that they'll work. In the most important thing is when failure Ricardo's it it often does you must know how to process it particularly with the people who have a responsible for it of created the idea and the people who are involved with ended in helping see it through when you got the job of CEO Chairman CEO okay so next next you get the the job and you immediately start innovating. I mean at the time Michael Eisner. Those of you read the Book Whole Inside Story. There'd been a lot going on on which Michael Eisner Steve Jobs Pixar. There had been some distancing. They're just totally fractures shirt totally factored and you pick up the phone and you call Steve Jobs. was that a hard phone. Call no no. There's nothing to lose and the reason I did that is because I had in my mind that in the job in terms of priorities. I need to figure out what we're going to do. Animation which was such an important business Disney Pixar had been such a valuable partner to us at some point. I had to figure out whether that relationship was fixable or not and he was typical Steve. How long have you worked for Michael. Eisner said five years here's and he said why should I think I think as a tenure sorry I will see over five your why should I think anything's going to be different with you in the job and I I said I just want a chance to to prove that it will be give me that chance and he said well when the dust settles come up and talk and that's what began a relationship ship with him. I didn't really have won that ultimately resulted in not only US buying Pixar Steve becoming our largest shareholder a member of our board then a very good friend of I'm on. I think we get an insight into Steve Jobs that I've never seen before even reading the the biography of him. We see a side of him that we we didn't know you became really close friends with him and he actually told you about the cancer that moment on the bench described that moment on the bench we you were announcing the acquisition of Pixar from Pixar. We had got up to fix ours headquarters in Emeryville California. It was a seven point four billion dollar acquisition Russian and we will be announcing it at around one o'clock California time after the stock market closed and we were assembled in a conference room. GonNa waiting for the announcement to be made in Steve showed up at the door and said to point his finger me or did to this and said. Can we go for a walk and I thought he wants to. This can't be good. He wants to get out of the deal or he wants more money or you want something. I just thought why would you WANNA go for a walk with me on the brink of making this gigantic announcement and we went for a walk the Pixar campuses beautiful campus with beautiful walking paths and there was a bench that the two of us sat down and he put his arm behind me on the bench that this is very interesting. I wasn't close with them. At this point. I was getting close and he said I'm going to tell you something that my only my doctor and my wife knows well and he had had cancer few years earlier. It was announced. He was operated on the declared himself cured. It was a form of pancreatic cancer. It was operable and this was a few years after that and nothing has been said more about his illness about his medical condition because it was assumed he was fine and he said and I so he said to me. I'm telling you something only lean jobs. His wife and my doctor knows and I I can't tell anybody else. I'm thinking this got. This has got to be momentus in some form. Were you thinking that the cancer cancer come back well when he said Dr Ethan. I immediately thought something bad here and he said I needed to know. My cancer has come back. Give me some some details and I said why. Are you telling me this and he said I'm giving you a chance to get out of the deal. I said get out of the deal. I looked at my watch. There was a clock ticking taking this point because we're going we announced the press conference and we're going to live to the world to tell everybody about this deal and I thought my goodness and less than an hour. We've to tell everybody this and what am I going to do. I had no idea what my responsibilities where he was becoming a member of the board and our largest shareholder doc even though we are buying Pixar we weren't buying Steve Jobs and said you need to tell me more and told me that he had a fifty fifty chance of living for five years and I I said can you tell me more and he told me metastasized to his liver and I think I even ask give me some more perspective and he said my son is high. School is going to graduating four years. I'm going to be at his graduation Sun. Read wow there's something very powerful in that statement that he's so determined to live and it was very meaningful to me and it was so it came so from from from deep within him and I could tell he was emotional about it and I said look. I have no idea what my legal responsibilities lots of. Bills are here you my word. I won't tell people I I don't really know what the right thing to do. Here is from a corporate perspective but my sense is that we should go through this. I'm not going to back out. I appreciate the opportunity and said a lot about him and about you yeah well. It's interesting. I haven't really thought much about what it said about me other than maybe i. I just didn't 'cause you know it was like he was a difficult moment because a even though I wasn't that attached him at that point. This guy was telling me that he was very the ill couldn't be good. They was dying. He was talking about his kids and I felt terrible for him. So I had that going on I wasn't I wasn't that concerned about the called the corporate side that was two thousand and early two thousand sixteen dialect Tober of two thousand eleven and they made the graduation he made the graduation when he made that in a lot more what he did in that period of time in terms of his life and apple is just extraordinary just and the heroism that he exhibited in in that period of time with such incredible pain and then. I love this moment when Lorraine job says to you she tells you about the moment Steve tells her that he has told you and she says can we trust him and Steve Jobs says about you you. I love that guy yes. She told me that at the cemetery she said I've never told. You my side of that story. We never discussed it and it was about them. Come him coming home that night after the announcement and as you said he she asked him whether he told me and he said I did they had parallel apparently had a quite a discussion if not an argument the night before about whether they had discussed it so she said did you tell him and he said I did.

"Five it your history. There's such a wonderful quote that you used the book about Your Dad. Because your dad suffered from depression he was severe manic depressive yeah yeah and a lot of people take that on the burden of what their parents experience and they take that on you took it on and you did it in a much different way. You decided I will not be this person. Yes one of the quotes that move me so much is actually early on in the book you write. I attended Ithaca College spent nearly every weekend night my freshman and sophomore year making pizza but I got mostly BS and few as in high school but academics was never my passion something click for me. When I went to college. I was determined to work hard. Learn as much as I could learn and I think that was related to my father. A function of never wanting this is what got me never wanting wanting to experience the same since a failure that he felt about himself. I didn't have a clear idea of what success meant I don't know specific vision of being wealthy or powerful but I was determined not to live a life of disappointment whatever shape my life took. I told myself there wasn't a chance in the world that I was going to toil on and frustration and lack fulfillment. Wow how old were you when you figured that out already I was aware that he was tormented by self disappointment amount at a very young age when I say very young ten eleven twelve years old and then I I had discussions with him about it later in life but I also spoke with my mother about it as well. I was the oldest son she turned to me. Often to I guess in a way step into his shoes. WHO's in the household as you know as someone who is more stable more measured maybe more secure so I felt that that responsibility but I also was little man of the House Speaker yes and it wasn't I didn't ever feel that was burdened by it but I felt that but in his case his profound personal self disappointment was I'm the president in in our house relationship with who provided for the family and barely early you lost many jobs because his his depression often resulted in frustration and anger. Did you all know that it was depression. Did you not call let depression then yes. I was aware that he got electric shock treatment at some point. When I was young I was aware that he was on a number of different medications but but also we will you speak in the book. right of a lifetime about the fact that who you are is a product of as all of us nature nurturing so coming from that father coming from your mother also gave you all the qualities of leadership that now everybody heralds well yes i. I clearly have no idea what what genes I was infused with that contributed to some of this but clearly my upbringing we had a lot to do with it and you know what my parents gave me and and taught me even though some of the lessons were difficult like the one we just we just discussed had the profound effect on who I became oh I am yeah more of our conversation in just.

"Is one of the greatest business leaders of our time so you finally written this book and I know that for a long time publicist trying to get you to write a book and you always know. Why did you finally say yes. Why did you finally say yes well. It was all timed sore so I thought thought to when I was going to leave Disney which was this year and I thought because so many people have asked me for advice particularly young people with secret secret to your success. I'm sure you get a lot of that. You know what's will one leadership lesson. You can teach us because mass so often thought it would be nice down it. It would be nice to write it down particularly well. I can still remember it while it's fresh in my mind so that I could give it to people and I thought the timing would work little. Did I know that that that the time he didn't really work because I'm still at work because you were thinking that this would be the end. This would be the sort of Swansong yes. I thought this would would be a perfect time to write down kind of create a retrospective my own yeah of this incredibly wonderful personal experience yeah. I have to tell you right of a lifetime surprise me because obviously I read a lot of books. I see a lot of corporate books. I've read a lot of leadership books and I wasn't sure you being the calm. Cool reserved person that you are that you would open up your life the way you have done in the ride of a lifetime lifetime and allow us in. was that hard for you at first because this isn't like normally what you do know people in it was it's not as hard as I thought it would be. Once I concluded that unless I did I wouldn't be able to write a good Booker Telugu store. You know we're in the business at telling great stories. I should should have known going into this that often to tell a good story you have it has to come from within from the heart from writers hard from characters heart and so something clicked along the way and I realized that to tell the story that I wanted to tell and to teach what I wanted to teach in this book to others I had to be completely the open and generous with what was within me but you know I read it literally cover to cover and in the end and the back where you're thinking people I don't remember who it was. You think it it's harder than I thought it would be. Yes someone on the publishing. I was much harder than I thought it would not. Because of being in touch with my inner self alphand it just was more time consuming and because it is my words and my story getting it right was more important than anything else. I think I've ever created you saying Dan the prologue this book is not just for spiring. CEO's of the world but to anyone wanting to be less fearful more confidently themselves as they navigate their professional. Oh and even personal lives those are such good lessons for this audience in particular are supercell audience. Does this mean that you are fearless. I often say to people that I was probably born with either. No fear gene or very small one and I don't know why or maybe I was I I I was as I was being raised I was. I was raised to be fearless. I don't know but I don't. I'm all the time what keeps you up at night. What makes you afraid and I have had very little time identifying what that is. I just don't wake up afraid I don't. I don't approach things with that mindset mindset so let's talk about getting to ABC working with Roone arledge one of my favorite moments. If in the book is Roone Arledge Your Boss Your Mentor. You're working hard. You're doing all these hours and you're both standing at the urinal. Yes I mean I call that letting us in. I debated whether.

"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply before Bob Iger took over as CEO of the Walt Disney Company Disney's stock value with stagnant it studios and networks and theme parks had lost their magic. We were embattled and somewhat discouraged and not as optimistic as we needed to be and we needed to find our way. I talks about how he turned. Disney around in his new book called the ride of a lifetime and peers Elizabeth Blair spent some time with him. Bob Eiger worked his way up the entertainment ladder starting with menial jobs on soap soap operas and game shows to running. ABC Sports as CEO of Disney eiger oversaw the opening of the Disney theme park in China and championed the end blockbuster movies like Black Panther has also had some flops when he was head of entertainment for ABC. He presided over a legendary failure a musical starring police officers careful cop rock with the brainchild of the late Stephen Bochco whose credits included hillstreet blues and NYPD blue in his book Kebab Eiger Rights. He didn't regret trying cop rock because quote. If you want innovation you need to give permission to fail when you take risks you have to be willing the process failure because there is inevitable failure in creativity eiger believes in taking big swings before the COP rock fiasco one one of those swings knocked it out of the park at least initially eiger convinced his bosses at ABC to broadcast twin peaks a riveting but oddball murder mystery created by filmmaker David Lynch twin peaks was in a way the game of thrones of its Time Television was somewhat tame at that point still and this was unlike anything that was on extremely well executed have very compelling story and it gave Bob Iger huge cred in Hollywood's creative community in his book. He writes that suddenly he was getting calls from Major Movie v Directors Steven Spielberg George Lucas wanting to know what they might do for ABC. The first season of twin peaks was a sensation but it could not sustain name and here's where Bob. I learned a lot about working with artists. David Lynch was known for offbeat films not a TV series that needed to deliver a new plot twists each week. EIGER says Lynch didn't want to answer the central question to the twin peaks mystery who killed Laura Palmer David was arguing that if he solved the murder known would wanNA come back that would be it and and I argue the opposite and ultimately I prevailed it was not easy and the series failed and looking back. I'm sorry that I pushed it that far with David although I will say even though I have incredible double respect for David. One of the problems with the series was there wasn't much else to it from a story perspective I didn't I didn't understand that as much then managing the creative process acre anchor says requires both empathy and resilience to turn Disney around eiger set about acquiring other companies starting with Pixar the studio studio behind animated classics Toy Story and the incredible 's Eicher struck deals to acquire Marvel Lucasfilm and must recently twenty first century Fox. He says when acquiring a company he tries to keep its it's culture intact. There's a culture a way of life at the company that you've bought that sometimes can be integral to the creative process S. or the process of creating product at that company and if you go about it into heavy handed away you can destroy spirit and culture and a sense that's a purpose and in doing so destroy the very essence of what you bought our or reduce value as CEO Bob Eiger turned Disney into one of the largest entertainment companies in the world but he was not a shoe in for the job far from it in two thousand five Disney was in terrible shape and at the time he was then CEO Michael Eisner's number two Eiger says to get the job he worked on winning over members of the Disney board the shareholders and most importantly he says the people he would would lead Jennifer Lee who recently became chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios says I leads with trust he has all the faith in us is being grounded when we need to be grounded but he does know that you know to move forward. You have to be able to be bold but I is not without criticism. Disney has some I'm two hundred thousand employees and how those at the low end of the pay scale or treated has come under attack Disney heiress Abigail Disney has decried ride the enormous wage gap between workers at Disney theme parks who make less than twenty dollars an hour and it's executives who salaries are in the multimillions in response the Walt Disney Company points to its program for hourly employees that pays one hundred percent of the cost of vocational training or college degreen lean either recalls when he was fighting for the job of CEO he knew it was vital to have the support of the people inside Disney. It starts with the people who work at the company. You're not going to be admired on the outside unless you're admired on the inside. The Magic Kingdom Bob Iger has overseen for the last fifteen years includes theme parks around around the world movies. TV shows cable channels in his book. He writes about where his personal ambition comes from. He grew up in a mostly flee working class town on Long Island his father a world war. Two veteran had trouble keeping a steady job. He'd been diagnosed with manic depression. EIGER Egger says he grew up watching his dad feel like a failure even though I reminded him a number of times that he should be looking at accomplishment in a different way he had raised two kids kids have a younger sister and I thought that was an accomplishment in itself but seeing his disappointment with himself which was something that not only created a disatisfaction but an anger really at himself. I promised myself that I would not be him in that regard in there's new book optimism is at the top of his list of principles necessary for true leadership Elizabeth Blair. NPR News.

"When will it arrive in Europe. I Dunno while away didn't say all right just for completeness sake while we also showed off its GT to use smartwatch. It's ear buds three wireless noise cancelling headphones and several smart. TV'S THE POOR SMART TV's come on on we were really good too stupid mate thirty pro yeah this is. Can you imagine the prices are staggeringly low. Can you imagine can really any large competitor that would be capable of making a phone with these specs being able to price it like that when that happened. There are a few specks as as a Tom alluded to that we can go through now that in fourth and twenty it can throw the ball at least fifty yards and having any laterals rugby fit to try and get it in the end zone folks Wa. Wa has a problem or a company under siege age and yet specifically in Europe and in China. They are a prestige smartphone maker. This is probably the only thing that they do know now how they can count on so yes. They need a big phone. Yes they do need it to be a success and they'd prefer for you to buy the Porsche Virgin. Yeah I mean granted ended. It's tempting to think like Ooh they knew their backs were up against the wall of trade restrictions so they pulled out all the stops but features like this are put into a phone months and months and months ahead of time so so sure they kind of had an inkling that this might be in the offing from the trade restrictions but these specs were were nailed down for the most part before that while they would have come out with the same phone had there never been been any trade restrictions on them from the United States. They're just a really good maker of phones and thank goodness for them that they are because at least they have a fighting chance of selling doing some of these but even with all these specs. It's going to be hard for people to get over even the perception that like well. Does it have real android. Even though it's Android Royd it's not the android that comes from Google. It's not the end of the gets the security updates from Google and it certainly doesn't have the Google play store on it well so that's that's the big question rate eight. Some people are going to say that. Is everybody going to say that yeah. I mean it the android right yeah it's android. It's just like a wall way different kinds of android. I don't think well I was about to say. I don't think that many people care. I think a lot of people care I think the company may still sell a lot of phones to people who say android is android. Don't don't really know the difference as long as it mostly functions the same way look. Can your phone do the thing that's all care about and if part of that thing is something that they're used I used to doing in the Google play store or with that. A Google presented a West than it will be a friction point and we'll see how much they have to pay for it. Yeah Yeah we'll we'll the well it says android. I guess that's still android or that. android is not the Android logo used to where's the Google playstore which one will will out. I don't know Google launched a new platform within Google pay APP not play but pay APP in India the spot platform. Let's merchants create. Many stores called spots inside Google pay.
