"A preview we turned Bridget Carey from seeing that she is on the K. are all the news line so Bridget do we expect too much out of the September announcements. well now that I can do the answer because he is gonna look the same at first glance on the front and so will they keep people. if you want to jump to get that new fall and and we're seeing trends are people really are holding on to their phones little longer so so that whole hype that lives of years past is kind of dying down a little bit apple's job in their announcement is to give you a good reason to want to upgrade and it looks like you can hear a lot of talk about cameras because what you do with the photo is it is it is something that they can improve upon you know you Newegg you see these leaks out there and these rumors that the high end models are going to have this big old square on the back that has three cameras on it so you could use some interesting facts and maybe the front facing camera will be able to do different things to but that said you're also going to hear a lot of focus on services you know we're in a time where you know if you're not updating your phone is off and can apple get you really excited about locking in his answers ascription service with their apple arcade you know game gaming service or apple TV you know what we were still waiting for more details in those areas and that's for apple topping for a little more focus to the days of people waiting outside the apple store for days at a time of those done. yeah because of all the online pre order you can do and have it delivered to your door any people still like some of the fun of it who are just you know fans of anything you know people like physically going in hole in grabbing of the summer service ahead of time online if you're really good a smart fan you know you have to wait in line is reserved online show up you talk about the cameras that they're going to be improving that they can improve what percentage of customers actually will be able to utilize all of those new features from these new cameras you know one of the things I'm really wondering about is that free here thrown out a lot called a are augmented reality because in the past apple of then you have Tim cook going onstage talking about all the cool things you can do an augmented reality if listeners don't know think of Pokemon go think of animated things floating. Rosalie in front of you on the desk yeah and with a youthfulness that right did you hear about them like we're gonna have this great new skill with our computer so smart we could have you know blend real images with speak images and if you're like why you a funny face filter if you use Snapchat or something but where is the more practical work we take it to the next level if you're gonna put three cameras on the back of the phone show me where we're going to take the conversation next that's where I'm wondering because yeah it's cool to say it like you can do it how do people are really doing then we have to wait until next year before apple decides to get into the five G. unless they're gonna surprise everybody and have a five G. from this year I think every order not I think that this is gonna be that that to me is the far fetched you know rumor I I really think you're gonna have a lot of people who are fine with their phone to just stick with it so something really you know big comes along with that and in the year twenty twenty in an apple always waits until the market is a little more I guess you know or the technology I should say is a little more worked out and the case of five G. people just hear that phrase but no real five G. anywhere apples like an alleged slave to the really is a stronger network out there let's Bridget Carey from seeing ads on the K. or all the news line. okay all the news time is ten fifty.

YouTube's machine learning can't keep up with its promises (The Daily Charge, 9/9/2019)

"Today on the daily charge getting emotionally and spiritually ready for whatever apple throws at US tomorrow more leaks surrounding the Pixel for Youtube say I failing to protect golden and the special surprise for National Teddybears Good Morning and welcome to C. Nets Daily L. E. charge. It's Monday September ninth. I'm Rigid Carrie Jones awesome. Let's kick things off with our top story today so back in February Youtube but made the promise to suspend comments on videos that featured kids aged thirteen in younger. This was following an outcry over pedophilia lurking in the comments videos with young children included comments with predatory links so youtube said it would just end comments on videos that featured miners who were thirteen and younger and even videos with older miners who could attract Iraq predatory behavior but fast forward to now six months later and Joan. You did a search on Youtube. You've found a number of videos still had comments on them videos with kids. What's going on yeah. It's still incredibly easy to find tons of comments on videos feature kids that are clearly infants toddlers lers preschoolers and then even some videos that show teenagers in this sort of predatory situations. Doing you know this whole thing kicked off because there was of log about a guy who did a search for bikini haul videos and fell tumbled into this algorithm ick like pedophilia wormhole all gross yeah very gross. If you search Teen Bikini Hall even now you can find teens wearing bikinis with comments that are inappropriate and it sounds like what Google was just using this algorithm to automatically detect if there was a kid in the video like what's what's wrong. Why are there still comments as video. I mean there's a couple of things going going on. One is that Youtube scale staggering who has five hundred MIL has five hundred hours of content uploaded every minute so from the beginning of when we started talking. There's there's already like five. Hundred hours have already uploaded. It's a lot but that being said they built themselves to the scale and whenever they have these problems they say hey. We've got machine learning. That's going to help us keep things in line and to a degree they are. We didn't find a ton like a slew of really predatory comments on most of these videos but it was still easy to find them and they made the commitment they said we're going to be disabling comments on videos that have minors younger than thirteen and even if they're at that scale machine learning just isn't catching enough for it to be. I I did one search and found over one hundred from one hundred different channels that had comments wasn't even digging deep this basic search yeah. It was a basic search for a kid focused subject. I searched pretend play and found videos. They range changed videos that had almost no views and no subscribers videos that had twenty million views there was one video that had over seventeen hundred comments and that was one after we contacted did Youtube and said here's a list one hundred videos from one hundred different channels all them by what you said is your policy should not have any comments enabled on them. That was one of the ones they disabled half the disabled comments on half of those after you contacted them yeah. They were cleaning half of them. Yeah Yeah and one of them was a video that had seventeen hundred comments already accrued on it so do they have a statement of like. Why do they any more time to get the you know the whole Algorithm writer. They didn't directly address. What why the things that we found slipped through the cracks. They said look we've taken down hundreds of millions of comments on lots and lots of videos. We're investing harden. China and they use these stats. Don't really say anything like they have a classified here that removes two times as many predatory comments okay. I don't know what that means because they won't tell us what that's off a baseline of what two times of two times three six they're not talking about that but like what do we really. We know what that means. They are not being transparent about where they actually stand on a promise. They made months ago between this and what happened last week. You definitely has to do do more in this area and that's why this matters at this point because you just promise last week that they would be going even further and relying on more machine learning to not only take away comments from videos for kids but also any personalized advertising and notifications into other things to keep watching that. There's also another Google story out today. There's there's a leaked promotional video for the Pixel for smartphone it popped up online Monday and the video appears to confirm some rumors that we've heard last week in the view you can see owners are controlling the phone with hand gestures and they're also controlling it fully with a series of voice commands like which just voice you could put photos. Send those photos to other. The people and you don't have to lift a finger. Cameras are also a big part of this video. It looks like you could take photos really well. In the dark even capture all the stars in the sky by taking a picture of the Milky Way. There's this big square cut out in the back for three cameras and an earlier leaked image. Midge does show the phone could come in a bright orange color along with black and white so a lot of leaks on the Pixel for funny timing for that Joan Down Down Shafei. It'd be funnier if all the previous leaks for picks of four have been from Google itself. This is one league. It's like an actual leak. It didn't come from Google so they didn't didn't have any control over the time. It's just one of those things where you go. Okay the Apple Events Tomorrow and we're all talking about the Pixel for so this is make it'll make things interesting discussions. I think we're GONNA be talking much about the Pixel for tomorrow. Though well it it is one of those things where people who are curious about it. They'll be hearing about it in a few weeks. Usually it's an October kind of event for Google and is the if these leaks are right. You got you know that square cut out in the back and we've seen that kind of leaked out with apple too so it's just interesting interesting. We're going to be coming to you live tomorrow. Covering that apple event a we have a pre show stream starting at noon eastern nine. Am Pacific. We're going to give commentary before the event during the event after the vent we have our team also chiming in from inside the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's campus in Cupertino so definitely stick around for that of course tomorrow for the daily charge.

YouTube smacked with record $170M fine over children's privacy law (The Daily Charge, 9/4/2019)

"Google will be paying a record record. One hundred seventy million dollar fine to the federal trade commission to settle allegations that youtube illegally collected personal information from children without parents consent this this is the largest fine for a children's online privacy protection act ever and the law came into effect in one thousand nine hundred eight. It'll be one hundred and thirty six million dollars to the f._t._c. The and thirty four million dollars to new york the allegations were that youtube violated capo by using tracking identifiers people who watch channels specifically for children children without getting parents consent a major part of youtube yeah. That's like a whole economy and yeah you're right. It is a major part because youtube earned and millions of dollars using those tracking cookies and delivering targeted ads based on people who watch those videos most likely children with this settlement. This basically clean means a lot of trouble for people that make content specifically for children on youtube youtube have to develop a system where children targeted channels have to identify themselves so so they won't be able to comment on it they won't be able to send notifications or anything like that and the ads aren't gonna be things that can be tracked on your behavior just generic ads yeah and basically basically a one hundred and seventy million dollars might sound like a lot but i mean the votes came down to three two with dissenters saying that the find was not strong enough they make that in eleven hours worse any money to to google and youtube i mean it's just a senator ed markey who had written the capo bill back in nineteen ninety eight had released lisa statement after the fine came out and noted the f._t._c. stands for forgetting teens and children arguing that spicy this amounts to nothing more than a slap on the wrist for youtube and google because you know that they knew i it's one thing it's like oh. Gosh what a mistake you know they they. They knew knew it was going on in the background and this law has been around since ninety eight. You said right so yeah. It's not like it's a secret if anything this is more so going to impact these channels on youtube people that are making content for children's specifically because there were also making a lot of money off of this anyone who has a kid knows that youtube and nursery rhymes is like like just just a whole economy out there. It was like playing those wheels on the bus. Video is over and over again. The good news is if you have one of those channels they these changes won't be coming for another four four months so you still have a good amount of time to look for alternatives to youtube. I'd i mean good luck well. I think it's okay. It's like a yay moment like maybe it will finally do something but this would. It took okay next up you might be sharing videos from ring police because you trust your local officers but those videos can be used completely unrelated issues a scene at investigation found that ring had been promoting to police officers could share obtained footage with other agencies and the company doesn't take responsibility for what happens once officers get those clips and video requests from police sent through ring. The company does not tell people that detail so you. I don't know when you're clips. Police is being used for other purposes. Which is something that privacy advocates worry about. You should be able to know like okay. I give them the right eight but then you realize you're just waving everything away. Yeah we asked to police departments. You know have you been sharing this with federal agencies other police departments and they've said no but there are more than four hundred police departments partnered with ring. I mean we're most likely to get down and ask all of them but that's not stopping them. For future case yes yeah yeah yeah because these police that we reached out to only really partnered with them like in the last six months or so so if they can share of other agencies. There's a concern that you know a clip used to stop. The local bar. Burglary could also be used by ice on an unrelated person in the videos background for example yeah. I know that there's a lot of arguments like well. You know i have nothing to hide and <hes> you know this. Isn't that good that it can you know. Stop someone who's terrible in the neighborhood but what concerns concerns me after reading your great report <hes> golf club golf club <hes> is is that there's no wording for the consumer to say say that this is happening. We need more transparency. You know if you want to participate. You just needs to be it. All has to be spelled out my footage. If i send to a certain group can it can't go anywhere. There's no time that will be deleted that kind of thing. We ought to think about the far reaching the step five and six not just the here now now. The argument is that you know ring. Keep saying that people give this footage to officers with their complete consent but how much of it is really consent. When you don't know like everything thing that you're giving up and finally here's an idea for online privacy from the people that develop the environment of constant tracking. We live in today. The interactive of advertising bureau proposed a digital token identifier for every user online that people can use to tell advertisers preferences including opting out so right now now the internet is structured so you're tracked by ads and cookies wherever you go like this is most likely on this website as well the token the token idea is is a single identifier instead of multiple trackers across a single website and the says you have the ability to tell advertisers to screw off in the settings privacy standards have obviously become an issue like in recent months as youtube learn this morning from its settlement and the industry's kind of seeing the backlash and looking for for solutions now. This is still a proposal by. I mean it's interesting. No one's really suggest said you know hey don't track me at all. I mean wouldn't that be nice. <hes> yeah exactly i. I like the concept. I think it's clean <hes> but <hes> i know it's like you can't just turn it off overall but maybe the maybe this is the middle ground that it's hard not to feel like there's some kind of strings attached with this considering that you know just a few years ago. We thought oh hey isn't this great. Everything is free and i'm not paying for any of this this and now we find out what we being tracked all over it kind of just seems like history repeating itself with some like years down the line. We'll find out something about this identifier that we didn't know before level of tracking became that can creep you out. When did you start getting how deep they go like. That's like i don't mind knowing i like x y and z t._v. shows but we start getting really deep into what i'm shopping raff. That's when i got to pump the brakes for the daily charge. I'm alfred. I'm bridget carey. Thanks for joining us.

How does Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus's stack up against Pixel 3's Night Mode? (The Daily Charge, 8/19/2019)

"Today on the daily charge how does the note tens new camera stack up iphone eleven feature rumors and a glimpse inside virgin galactic spaceport good morning and welcome to see that's daily charge. It's monday august nineteenth. I'm rocking average kerry. Let's take a look at today's headlines in the iphone. Eleven expected to launch next month in our own. Patrick colin has he rundown of what apple needs to add if it wants these new phones to succeed unless it is a pretty obvious including things like battery battery life and cameras for me. It's a long shot but i love to see apple. Come out with a redesigned screen that limits the notch just like a lot of these other companies bridge. Did you want to see the iphone. They're not still bothers you. After all this. We haven't like just got used to it. It was a cycle where i was okay with it. Then it bothered me then i made my piece with it but then these other phones come out now have eliminated the notch in novel ways. I'm like why can't apple do that. It's all about invasion right yeah well. I will say that but <hes> you know you know. I've been on maternity. Leave for a while. So i've been out of the whole rumor cycle. It's been it's been pretty great to be out of it but now i'm coming back going okay all right. We got for the levin and all three phones going to look the same really on the front like like why don't we have more options like you know still. Maybe people want that that touch i._d. Home button you know and i know they're going to give up on it but i mean maybe that's what i want. I want more of like more options on visuals for the different ever malls but also more options in the software like i okay so so fo the cameras better yeah the camera's always better you know. Maybe we don't need to have that whole factory at the push deep into the screen anymore so for for such the touch never use it so like maybe i care more about the software updates than the physical attributes says they're all going to look the same yeah i mean the i would love to see in screen fingerprint reader. I mean samsung's now. They've done for about a year now other companies have it'd be nice for apple. Bring i'm back tim. How about some really cool uses of a._r. Because you always hear them tease about it but like i wanna feel a little bit more drawn into that like what's possible desolate next up. Virgin galactic is set to commence its first commercial space voyage in a few months and eric mac and a glimpse inside space-borne america's gateway to space last week. Virgin galactic said that the space word is operational and invited folks to tour the facility we think you are you eager to go to space <hes>. I don't really do well on rides like the gravitron and like anything that involves forces so. I don't know if i'll make it. I mean i always wanted to go to space camp as a kid but <hes> i think i'm i'm good seen how this first batch of rich people do yeah keep in mind. This is not for everyone <hes> there. There is the verb six hundred passengers who've plunk down deposit but the ticket ticket for one of these rides is two hundred fifty thousand dollars. That is a lot of money going space but you know it space. That's true. It's the ultimate mitt brag on instagram. Really your grandfather is going to be blowing up there so yes now for our main story. Jessica doku taking it's the new samsung galaxy note ten plus for a spin and her ongoing review is found a much improved camera. Samson's cameras have generally been good but not top top tier so the fact that the temples nightmare seems to stack up well against the pixel three is is a good sign for folks who are looking for this phone on her article like there is a <hes> example of the photo with night mode on not and it's it's pretty cool like like it's much more crisp when when capturing lit signs at night stomach all right i can see that perk bean definitely worth it yeah. It's a lot of my shots are at night. I noticed the photos seem to be a lot sharper now. It's perfect google always phones the the pixel three in the wall way p thirty pro. I get that right. There's the names are older. It's kind of ridiculous thirty pro. They tell you the kind of how long to hold your phone phone study to get optimal shot whereas the no tents or makes you guess a little bit which is not ideal well. I mean i'm always just in the moment right so it's getting over minder on your screened. Hold still might might be helpful sometimes like even mind. This is an ongoing review just because been she's had it for a couple of days now. She's she's made a bunch tweaks to make it perfect for her <hes> but this is an ongoing process. It's still going to take a couple of days and really kind of get all the tests the battery test out of the way to get a full review so stay tuned to see that they're they charge roger.

"The road. it is tech Tuesday. Typically, we talk to Bridget Carey as senior editor at c net. But today, a senior reporter for seeing net Joan Saltzman on the line with us Joan. How are you? I'm great. How are you doing great nice to meet you something in the news on this tech, Tuesday, which is kind of odd? We talk about Facebook and Google a lot. But this is turned real all of a sudden because they will be testifying the congress. Explain this. Yeah. There are representatives or Facebook Google on top of the hill right now that testifying before the house subcommittee, the judiciary committee and addressing white nationalism. The president of went after them, especially after last month, not occur in Christchurch. New zealand. There's a heightened desire to bring representatives Ivy tech companies to. Somewhat accountable at least answer for how crimes like that. And other kinds of eight to be detained content on their network. That is really interesting. I mean, there has to be some part of the responsibility of theirs to monitor things, but with all the things being presented to them. It seems like it's a lot of upkeep. Yeah. So far during the hearing this morning, that's one of the points. Stop these representatives are making that they're monitoring it unprecedented scale of content that they need to monitor. And also a lot of these visions are difficult. You have issues up spree free speech bumping up against eight and one I met divides one from the other. It's very hard to gauge what that is. And do it in a way where you're being fair to the person's intent Jones and other companies as well. Or is it strictly Facebook and Google that are involved in this there other people on the panel testifying before the before the committee. We have Facebook content policy PM lead that they feel a woman who is their lawyer for free and that he would write that Google. And then there's other representatives. Those are the two main company representatives that are on the panel tonight as I said to myself that ERI said out loud that it's hard for them to monitor. All this information. That's coming over it still seems like they're responsible. So they almost need to find a way to do that. And they have the logarithms or algorithms or whatever they are that will catch some of these words, right? Yeah. There have been you know, YouTube which is a Google is Google gigantic video service, for example has had for a long time the ability to capture copyright violation. Call content ID their system for on the basic side. Facebook has for a long time. Happy ability to capture and recognize fee nudity. Those sort of things where we come to this debate, and how well be company prioriti- tasty. Expanding into heath, not just pornography or or things that are violating copyright issues. Like, hey, how well do. They prioritize the safety of the user versus their own growth. And that's where we've gotten to this issue where these are so big by Richardson relentlessly pursued growth for so long. They created a monster. That's too big for themselves even to control. Isn't it? True. Joan that anytime there's an incident a horrible incident. The first thing they do is they go, and they check the person responsible Facebook page, and they check what the person has googled over the last six months or a year. Those are always clues clues into that person's psyche that come too late, but they're still clues right? That's actually giving them a little bit more credit than a name deserve a part of the problem is that that position that these pot forms are monitoring to the degree that I don't think that actually have the resources to do even as a company like people talk about how to adding thousands of more moderators to keep an eye on content thing pay to such a bass degree that it it would be difficult to do that sort of vetting for everything that gets reported. And there are things that aren't being reported to you have to take that into account as well. All right. Well, here's the scary thing. I don't really use. My I creep on Facebook. I don't post a lot of stuff anymore. Kids are not into it at all teenagers and even twenty year olds are more into Instagram and Snapchat. But if you delete your Facebook page, explain how it can still track you, this is scary. So one of our reporters have agreed story today about how he had gotten into the habit of the activating his Facebook account, which is not exactly like the leading your account. It's a step in the middle between having an active account and completely erasing yourself from Facebook vacation. You would assume and he assumed met that a company wouldn't be tracking his behavior while he's just reading the internet at large what he's found is bad yet division does not necessarily mean. But Facebook stops trapping your behavior online. It doesn't mean that when you maybe reactivate you're out what happens is all that activity that you've been doing have been compiled. So that you can continue to be targeted ads that suit your new interest. All right and something there's a word unicorn that I thought was magical and ferry life. There's a new term unicorn, and I didn't know what this was explained this. So unicorns are private companies that reach an estimated valuation of at least a billion dollars. And the reason I called you because they're supposed to be sort of incredibly, rare and magical, but the late a a report recently that we're at a number of one hundred forty seven companies that are going to court. So they're not as rare as they are supposed to be. So there's money to be hand out there people like what are some of the companies that have reached unicorn status that surprise you. You know, the ones that things about unicorns is they're not really companies that would surprise people that are paying attention to Silicon Valley. These companies have been unicorns for awhile, but Airbnb Uber slack Pinterest. At least in Silicon Valley. Those are all companies that have been buddy for long time. So it makes sense that they would be are. They all tech companies. Joan I didn't hear you say that are they are not. Not necessarily all tech companies. But that's where the kind of center of all this money being poured into companies is that's where a lot of capital money is slowing too. That's where these companies have the capability to reach that kinda valuation before going public. Casper the bed manufacturers on that little really. Yeah. Another one another one that you you've heard of. But there you go worth more than a billion dollars, a billionaire Joan wheel we have less than a minute. But I'm curious about this story about the black holy eventual rise in telescope story about the black hole. Can you just do that? What kind of quickly? Yeah. Sure.

Mate X, 5G: All of your MWC 2019 questions answered here (The 3:59, Ep. 527)

"Welcome to the truth for tonight or Roger Chan and I'm Bridget Carey. I just got back from MDC twain nineteen in Barcelona where that show was just hat. Yeah. It was. So we all thought five G will be the key theme. But it turns out that we all come blown away by foldable phones and multiple foldable phones. If you like that's all anyone really cared about. Yeah. Just sort of run through things through we had the the galaxy fold from unpacked the week before really wall way despite all his controversies stole the show with its mate. X full device was actually the first journalist actually get my hands on it a nice. We also had a look at TCL's concept phone devices using this dragon hinge. Mechanism that allows foldable phones. And then Lastly, I broke the news that Motorola will launch its first foldable phone, which we believe will be the razor sometime in the summer. Of course, it will call the razor. Of course, the most like snappy phone, there is definitely one more fascinating devices because they mice sources say that, you know, they promises not as I looks like anything that we've seen so far which really the the fold and the made X pan filings show phone that looks like looks very much like the razor. I wanna have flat goes presumably the inside of the display would be one continues foldable of one foldable screen you'd actually closer clam shell like the old days. I feel like it's like a dream until like how to all these phones, although they're crazy expensive. What did it feel like to have the made X in terms of quality when you fold it? You've made X was I was surprised by the quality of since considering it was fairly thin. Like, I thought it might feel a little cheap. I think others have said there's a bit of a plastic field to its specially in the front. The screen is plastic Ola that allows for the the flexibility, but it does feel like it's a little cheap. And the fact that this thing folds. Inwards? So the screens on the outside. Yeah. Mixed meal war that thing's going scratched up like crazy for just a few months. Right. Yeah. And look we have the time with the price or twenty six hundred dollars for phone. I I am not getting it. But I'm just excited that these things are changing our conversation, and you know, maybe shaping the future. But this way to absolutely I think the fact that these displays offer the flexibility in terms of different designs from shapes and sizes. That's what really excites me about it. But you know, you've got twenty six hundred dollars for this phone. The gulfs is nineteen eighty. What kind of setting bar for these phones these foldable phones and they're pretty expensive. Yeah. And then also five g phones are coming out and they're more expensive, which makes me go. Why would you bother? Why would you bother the five G networks aren't really there yet? Exactly. That's the best point after all all their porting. I did the show came to conclusion the five G is technically here. It's not here any real way. And that really looking at second half to twenty twenty five service to be something material enough for actually wanna use it before we run at time. You got mentioned your big story that came out today. Yes. So I want to talk about my experience walking into a nuclear disaster zone actually court. You're so hard. I actually got chance to fly out to Japan's Fukushima DAI Ichi nuclear power plant site of the worst nuclear disaster worst meltdown in history where we got to look at the role that technology plays whether it's robots virtual reality. Whether it's drone technologies of the various Bissett technology being pulled together to really fix this. Same problem, which is supposed to take. Upwards of forty years and several seventy odd billion dollars. It's it's insane. The scope of and it's been what? Yeah. Eight years since this eight years and really only started literally scratched the surface. They just sent a robot in last month for the first time, we touched some of the debris down in the bottom of the nuclear reactor, really quick. What was your most nervous moment? Walk into this place was actually putting on the gear. I put three layers of gloves socks. Multiple boot changes hard hat face. All that in the being told that I would be in this suit for two and a half hours. Like that was not that was worrisome for me. I was a little bit. I can't wait to read the whole thing for full coverage state at check. I'm Bridget CARA is listening.

It's the end of the year, and it's time to do a little reflection. Things are really starting to wind. I've been feeling it since the week before thanksgiving where it's just very difficult to focus and stay motivated you. You're just ready for the holidays and the new year and all of that in the tech world, though, you're taking a look back at twenty eighteen and some of the things that aren't gonna be with us in the new year.

And if you actually if you know a little bit about this for is also bought it. Well, not that long ago. So they shut down. Their instant message shirt, you're a floor. So I feel like rice insists destroying my entire on my childhood. I'm kind of okay with all of this because there were way too many messengers out there to begin with. You've got Facebook messenger. You've got I message you've got all of this. Now, we can kind of consolidate a little bit and get everybody on the same messaging platform. What's the big one that people use all across the? What's up? Oh, what's up is is the real big global one? I mean, if you know folks who are from other countries everyone's using what's up like like, especially my in laws, and of course, then people also flocked to just using good old text messaging for everything.

And Bridget people are voting all over the place, and people are worried that these machines are going to be hacked what's going on? Well, actually, you should expect today social media to tell you like, you know, oh, my gosh this machine hacked or a lack of might be sharing these things, but. Slightly. It's a hoax. In fact, US officials are expecting like a wave of of disinformation or hoaxes and like Mike line about voting machines being hacked because this happened in two thousand sixteen during the presidential election with Russian trolls were doing it. And the hope is to make us diminish our confidence in elections, but you may see videos that look legit from people that they're showing the screen of something going wrong. But it doesn't mean if something's wrong the screen, it was actually hacked sometimes video showing a glitch on the screen could be something wrong with the screen like a software error or a human mistake. Back in two thousand sixteen there were nearly thirty thousand retweets for a video that should've voting machine being broken. But really it was used wrong. So malfunction doesn't necessarily mean a hack because the truth is to verify it was actually hack that doesn't happen in an instant takes awhile. So think twice before you tweet something if something looks weird, you know, it might not be the word hack and just be like something looks good itchy. But it's not Bridget. I'm not I'm not a doomsayer, but it's not impossible. Right. Right. Right. These machines have been proven to be vulnerable. I just mean like a vulnerability doesn't mean, you know, shot necessarily someone hacking right action, right as we speak. 'cause you got you gotta take that stuff. You know with a pause take a breath before you jump to that conclusion. Right. You'd think this was all be solved before the midterm elections came up. But you know, we don't know what to believe. I don't know if you're worried about it would it be best to just I know you can use the electron voter or you can do the little punch things is is that the counter that's had. I mean, should we just use the manual ballots? Would that be a way to make yourself feel a little easy? I don't know all the options in your district areas. But yeah, I it's there looks shady, you know, alert Pol percents figure out. Yeah. Maybe something like the other alternatives. If something doesn't look, right. But it's not the only tech. Election story. We're talking about today to like if you wanna get to the polls, and you're looking for a cheap ride Uber and lift or both offering discounts today. Oh nice. So, you know, hey, I mean you have to kind of go to polling site. But hey, you know, it's hard to get out there. And so at least there's there's some slack. You get to cut Whitney, and it comes to money on that bridge. It is at the driver for Uber or lift or is it the company themselves who's put a who's. Yeah. It's the companies themselves, but some people tend to not tip on the what amount would have been guess, you could say the driver might lose out if the ride was cheaper nearly free. And you don't give them a tip that reflects you would have paid. Yeah. Right. And there's Amazon is in the news. Have they decided yet if they're going to Washington DC is that we're headquarters are going to be or has it not been announced ever rumors? Right. Bridget there. There's does that. We'll find out this week. And it might even be two locations like Amazon couldn't decide where to go because of tech talent. And they might actually pick to new locations. I wouldn't call it almost a second headquarters. I just call it a satellite office. Oh, yeah. You know because everyone's kind of mumbling, oh, this feels like a big publicity stunt.

"Changes right here on Chicago's very own seven twenty WGN. Thanks. Hi, everybody. I'm bill. That's wendy. This should be a pretty good show. Like we mentioned during the crosstalk comedian Robert Klein will join us later, both Wendy and a huge fans of Robert clients. Hope you are too. We'll have a strange hitchhiking story for you. Unlikely celebrity with a local guy. Yeah. Tuck Tuesday, Bridget Carey will be on the show. Also, I am just sick to my stomach over these three children that were killed imagine. How awful. I truly cannot morning you say goodbye to your kids, assuming you're going to see them again in a couple of hours, and that's not going to happen. And what it what it is sad or more tragic than that nothing. And it Steve I heard you mention in the news that the stop sign was up. I have to say when you see a school bus stopped and you see sometimes the stop sign is out on the bus. Sometimes it is not if you're following the bus and the stop sign comes out you stop. If you're coming from the other way, you stop. But I have to be one hundred percent honest with you until about maybe ten eleven years ago. I did not know that. And then how did you learn that the bus driver totally screamed and swore at me. And I'm like what when the stop signs up everything stops. And I'm only revealing my ignorance because I want to help other people. It makes sense. The stop signs up you stop in both directions because the kid is crossing the street. Right. You need a stop sign, but a lot of people think if they're coming from the other direction. They don't have to stop. I don't know if this is the case, but I'm just putting it out there. It's we'll we're waiting to get some details from police. This may well have been a rural area. I mean, it was a school bus after all the road is described as state road twenty five. The arm was down in the other vehicle was coming in the opposite direction. Yeah. So so presumably the children were not near the door of the bus. So I don't know if they were crossing the road to get to the bus or the bus had stopped and they were crossing in front of the bus to cross the street. I mean, those are I'm trying to picture myself out this happened. And. And I know they've changed. I think they changed routes, and they do some things like that. Because it's a of course, if the if the kids were walking in front of the bus, they wouldn't have been blinded to the right would have seen them. Right. So yeah, I'm still I don't understand yet. Just exactly how it happened in normal circumstances. The driver would have seen them, but there's so many other options. Now, there's people who quickly glanced down at their phone, or you know, things. And on a rural road, you're going to see it far in the district imagine. Yeah. It was an accident. I mean this. I mean, you know, it all it's completely illogical Wendy. Sometimes I guess it just happens. But I'm just saying if if you see a school bus after getting yelled at by the school bus driver, the stop sign or the arm. There's like a gate to you stop in both directions. I truly didn't know that. I can't tell you. How many times I've been in situations that go either way there have been I've been in hundreds of situations where cars on both sides of the road. Stop. I've been hundreds of situations where traffic on the opposite side of the road just continues. And I always I have to say I kind of fall into form of whatever everybody else is doing. I don't pull over on my own if nobody else's, but if others are I do, but you're right. I think the law dictates he stop on both sides. I think. What is the rule for stopping for all vehicles must stop at least ten feet upon meeting from either direction? So I've I've found it looks like south Ben TV, they have a fuller account and the children were crossing the street. It was a pickup truck Fulton County. Indiana four kids were hit by a pickup truck while crossing the street this morning. Looking at the pictures to it was very early situation. It was dark. They're still, you know next week. We're going to change the clocks where I would have likely been daylight at this time it used to be this past weekend. We changed at ROY. Do we know Steve if any of the kids are in the same family they all in the same fan? I heard that at least three Wendy. But I think the reporting is perhaps all four. I mean, this this, you know, again, I I had two friends who were hit by school bus in a situation like this. When I was a kid, and you know, they're they're rural roads. Yeah. So it'd probably, you know, this isn't like a city bus route. I'm assuming now these are. Assumptions. Everyone goes to a corner that may have been the case. But it may well have been to this bus was picking him up at the end of the lane to or outside your house. Yeah. And it was just the four of them. Yeah. What a horrible day. I can't even imagine it. Awful. All right. We'll be careful out there and the pay attention to school buses. Do we want it? There's a couple of calls that just one more. Sorry. We need you to the police are saying that three of the four are from the same family all for all. Right. Hi, kathy. How are you today? This is terrible news. Yes. It's terrible news. My heart is breaking. I am a school bus driver had been for fifteen years worked for lake central school corporation out in northwest, Indiana. We had a special mandatory. Safety meeting yesterday. Just on this fat. My boss said, I do not want to lose a child this way. I do not want it to be on my watch. It is the law. It's a federal law. It's not a state law. It's not a local issue. It is federal a bus school buses stopped with that stop.

"Customers will leave value on the table know, what's next at seen? It. It's been at least a month since people started lining up for the chance to get a new iphone ten s or tennis max for those people don't want to spend a thousand dollars new iphone your time. Is here apple is also coming out with a ten are a lower end version of the ten Bridget Carey from CNN got her hands on the new phone and Carolis David Rankin as for her first impressions on the new ten are. I felt like there wasn't that big of a difference in your experience to maybe warrant spending so much money on the higher end phone when I mean, there are some differences in the lower one you're gay different kind of screen. It's LCD instead of Ola. Yeah. So case step down on the screen. It's a step down in the resolution on the screen. But we're at a point where I can't really tell the difference. Also, good. You know, what I mean like how much can your I really pick up on. And then, but of course, it's going to be the techies who are really passionate having the best of the best. So it didn't matter to them. They will always go for the highest model talked about a lot in your report was the camera itself because cameras it's the most important part of a phone anymore. Yeah. I mean, it's why we're wanting to upgrade because we want all the cool little photo facts. Right. And so what apple did is in their most recent sounds even last year ten and the tennis. There's cameras on the back. And that gives you different kinds of effects being able to kind of blurred the background of the subject. So they call it portrait mode. So really just puts that one person in focus and everything else is out of focus, and you're in the new ones were able to even do that. After you take the shot, so you can adjust. How blurry you want that background it just really kind of cuts them out? But with this cheaper model there they kind of got around. It was just one camera. They use software and what it's doing is the processor inside is identifying a person. So it's not gonna work on a dog. It's not gonna work on a pineapple. Whatever you you're trying to do this effect for it's looking for a human face, and then it's just kind of using its computer algorithm to cut out that person ambler, the background. Whereas the other ones are doing it with two cameras, and it doesn't matter if it's a human or not there. It's two hundred fifty dollars less. If you go with the cheaper one that if you go with two thousand dollar one phone, and that's like one of the very few things, she'll be missing out on for that kind of price difference. The other thing about this phone that's different than the others. Are the multiple bright colors, the color pastel colors that we're seeing. Yeah. It might say like tropical skittles, she got hike. You're you're, you know, pastel bright blue a coral in a yellow it also comes for those that don't have any fun and don't want any colors, you got your white and black gone, whatever. And then there's a really bright red, which a lot of phones also have that option for bright red. But you don't see apple in a long time and several years now making phones that have bright colors share people say, oh, I just put a case on it. Anyway. But I think I think why not offer more colorful options, we live in this World War every phone feels the same. Everything's metallic color. You know have a little pizzazz. I have a little fun. I'm kind of drawn to something that has a little bit of a bright pop to it. I think it's I think it's fun because this is a device that becomes our lives. Just like, you know, I don't I walk out of the house has jewelry for a reason I match my purses for a reason, you know, why not.

How many stories have we seen of people getting hurt because they're trying to do two things at once? We're joined by Bridget Carey from C nets on the KRLD Newsline. So Bridget what is wrong with us? We are definitely addicted. We knew look at what we're using with our cell phones, the average US consumer spending five hours a day on our phone say that, you know, forty percents of us between eighteen and twenty nine or online almost constantly. And when we're online, we're using a mobile device, right? So so these these devices that we rely on to get through our day are also designed to keep us looking at it. I mean, it's giving us rewards chemically. I mean, these mobile alerts these notifications everything is is a little surprise blip alert. It's triggering the brain to produce dopamine. Is this something that apple and Samsung and Nokia all counted on happening, certainly when they were designing things they were doing things to purposefully get us hooked, for example, a lot of people who used to work if Facebook speaking out now about the early date purposely designing things to trigger that dopamine hit in your brain. You know, when you were freshmen app you pulled down with your thumb like whether you're on Facebook or Twitter useless. Well, you the newest thing that pulled down effect is done purposefully because just like point slot machine lover, you know, we want to you know, pull down to see something new. And it's no matter what even if there was nothing new the design the app to make sure you see something you haven't seen before. So you get rewarded immediately. Holding down we've seen this before how many years ago was the people just worried about walking into found because they're so distracted by staring at their phones and not watching where they're walking. Right. I mean, I've been guilty of tripping a few times to them like trying to multitask, look at my phone while walking. It's it's incredibly silly. How we think we're, you know, fine looking down while crossing the street, but that said, yeah, people know that this report about the selfie death. I mean that really shows you where our priorities have have shifted. It shows you where where we find things to be important enough to do. And and it's all about that reward people liking our photo. And it's not just so much going to vacation spot and taking a photo of that great castle in front of you. But can you be in that shot Tuesday, people know you were there and then getting that reward? So we really changed the way we we we share information and act all because of the rewards. We get from these social networks, and it's not just. Ourselves. It's also affecting the people around us. Yes of which I have a two year old, and there's more and more studies coming out about how parents where we're hooks. It, you know, and we'll look at her phone, and it's affecting our kids react and think about us. There's more research that when we're distracted on the phone kids. Start feeling unimportant their side, they're angry. They're lonely babies are more fussy when parents are shifting their is down to a screen. You've heard about this pets too can tell when you're not paying attention to them. And you're sucked into the phone. We need to kind of take back control.

Errorless we're saying well, gosh, you know, like, this is going to be something that not everyone's going to buy only extreme fans will fork over this cash 'cause there's going to be other models. No, no, no. It was the hottest selling phone ever. So so apple there goes improve that, you know, prices not a problem for people who want to have a phone that that has hopper line features and really stands out with a whole new look at that led the way for Samsung to also start charging us dollars higher for their top model found this year. Are they just testing us to see how much we're willing to bend? I think it's a mix of several things first consumers where back team wild amounts of innovation and new features every year. That's a lotta engineering takes a lot of testing to achieve new feats in can we make dinner can achieve a longer battery can fit in more sensors into something and then okay? So now has to have new tricks than the cost of building materials does increase lightly year over year, and you have this arms race between apple and Samsung and others trying to see. All right. Can we have the one thing that makes us different stand out from the other guy, and and whenever we're trying to add something new distinguish themselves. I mean, you're out of point where phones can do as much as a laptop did a few years ago. So yeah, the price is going to go up when we're really pushing the limits. Your after year when people are hungry for. They they are saying yes, I want basically a powerful laptop in my pocket if you could even fit it in your pocket. Every year. And we thought that four digits a thousand dollars would be the ceiling that we'd be willing to pay just taking a look at what happened on Friday is that people lined up for the chance to have the new iphone ten s I think what you're looking at is. You're hitting a point for the thousand dollar or more following the maybe you don't necessarily need to get a new one every year unless you just love being among the first to have technology because this year's new iphone s it looks a lot like the iphone ten it's just a little faster. Slightly better performance. So I don't ten owners might not be the ones who are lining up. But it might be people who saw all the wild fervor over the last iphone. I want to be part of that on the other side of the coin. Now, you take a look at laptops. You take a look at desktops, those prices keep dropping because there's less of a demand for needing something that that that is that is over the over the top different. Let me put it in a different way. You have a situation where laptops are in place right now where I not expecting it to have with Bank features every year that are updated. You kind of don't expect one to have a whole lot of faster experience different experience when you're just using it to get on the web and do work Kerry from cenex..

"Right. So they really feel like now it officially is like outdated in that in that sense of even offering the option, and it kind of affected how I use my phone to listen to certain things in a couple of different ways that I that I didn't realize until I no longer had a headphone Jack all of a sudden it was gone. I used to just the the I have some some things around the house where I would sometimes if I was in the kitchen, or if I was in the bedroom, I would kind of just plug the iphone into it real quick. And I'd be able to listen to podcasts and things like that. And. I wasn't able to do that anymore. So now, you're looking at bluetooth speakers and things like that. So or or get their air pods or whatever. So it it. It impacted me in ways that I didn't realize until I bought the new phone if that makes sense. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. I they now own beats and the headphone company. So now, there's more reason to buy wireless headphone exactly like that. Yeah. That's for sure we're talking to see net senior editor Bridget Carey our weekly tech segments. Sponsored by connect wise. You can follow her on Twitter at Bridget Carey. I want to say, I think this giant. What is it? Now, six and a half inch phone. These these giant phones to me, and I don't usually throw around an accusation like this lightly, but they are a little gender bias because women can put them in a purse or something like that. If you're a guy the size of these phones, they don't fit in your pocket anymore. Oh, oh for I mean, none of these films. But in my pocket, you exactly. Forget the max, I mean, even just phone ten. I mean, it's it's it's it's crazy here. We are always wanting phones to make our lives easier. But we just talked about having to buy Marxist theories. Just to make the audio works. Headphone jacks and oh, wait. You can't fit it in your pockets. And an oh my life is feeling easier. Right. You know? But never nevertheless. I will say there's a lot of great perks in here. Because really we're buying these to be able to take photos and show the photos off because I feel like that's like the main the main drive is now it seems like it not for me. But for other people. Absolutely, right. I know and and and you're dropping it dollars on a phone just because look at the beautiful photos. I can show off to the world. So we're really buying cameras. There are some cool augmented reality effects that they're trying to push out. And they're showing that it's a faster processor for better gaming for for better real time processing like it was kind of some crazy number. They're throwing around. So you should feel like things are faster. If you get this upgrade. But I don't think it's a necessary upgrade if you if you have an iphone ten, and and you wonder when clothing companies are going to start to make bigger pockets to adjust to the phones because the phones aren't gonna adjust to close clearly. They're just gonna make whatever they're gonna make. And we're going to have to deal with it at what point do clothing company start to say. All right. We need pockets just a little bit bigger to fit the six and a half inch phone. I've seen this discussion talking. I think I think you're onto something and then grounded with trying because I've seen people talk about like, oh, I have these genes that can fit the are you kidding me? I'm telling you. That's that's that's the next big thing. We're doing our weekly tech segment. Here would see that senior editor Bridget Carey. So the big question for people like me when apple announces something like this based on how they've handled things in the past my lowly iphone eight is it going to still work properly. Well, the answer is. Yes. And apple has been criticized a lot for this. When you when you get that upgraded. I system you're like man everything feel slower it feels like it's just a little clunky. They say that this next update which is coming out very soon. I wrote down the date its gosh. I think September seventeenth right around the corner. Yes. September seventeenth that. I was twelve is gonna come to everybody and the real focus. They had on. This was we want to make sure your phone. That doesn't feel slower because criticized for that. And it should improve the battery life so shouldn't drain as much. Okay. Good. So it actually could be beneficial. I mean knock on wood. We got right. If it all works out. Right. And then the other big thing the apple watch got an upgrade. And this is a significant upgrade, right? Yeah. This is a serious four now on our fourth. I apple watch model thirty percent larger screen, so you can pack more into it. And a really you're getting more waste track your heart being able to do an EKG just touch y button being able to get warnings. If it detects a an A fib or that your heart rate's too, low something like that. And then there's this new feature that they said was took a lot of calculations to be able to detect when you fall. So it can tell the difference between a trip. If you take a nasty spill, it's gonna say it looks like you took a hard fall. Are you? Okay. If a minute goes by and you're not moving at all it'll call nine one one for you. Okay. So clearly they're going for the older crowd with with that feature about that. I thought about the help I can't get up. But, but, but but do they need a high end phone dot costs? All right. Four hundred bucks. Starts at four hundred bucks. And if you want cellular 'cause this thing can have its own internet connection that's going to be five hundred bucks. It is incredible. How far though the watches come. I mean to to have an e. An electrocardiogram feature in the watch. I mean, that's who would have thought that would be possible. I know like the wearables in general with technology have have always been an interesting area. But never had any taken off like the apple watch has. It's the most popular people wear.

"Some clouds some sun warm today. A slight chance of rain high right around eighty or so cloudy tonight, mild low sixty nine and more sun tomorrow, we're getting closer to ninety right now. It's eighty the only station in North Texas with news, traffic, and weather all day, NewsRadio ten eighty KRLD. Thank you so much for staying with us, David rank. Well, apple did it. They've made their announcement. It's their annual September. Visit to the crowd to introduce the new iphones were joined by Bridget Carey from seen that on the KRLD Newsline Abe rigid. This is this is always two hours of our life. That will never get back and looking at things that we look and go they're charging how much for this. I never thought I'd have to say that cheap iphone is seven hundred and fifty dollars and the the cheap version of the big one is eleven hundred dollars wildcard expected that I mean with the iphone ten last year, everyone that the big headline was hit. Thousand dollars for an iphone and their next model, which will be the ten s is that that same price point. But you're getting a better camera is the big headline. I'd say I'm better, I'm better affects a faster processor. So although it may look, you know, a little similar has a new goal color for the most part. It's just a boost in in abilities. Who is who is the customer for this for these new iphones? Well, when that I found ten came out everyone thought this me too expensive for most people was the most popular song. Here comes upgraded model to that. And really it's looking like if you want like the top of the line, if you really care about cou camera features, you know, this is their core fan base. What they did is they made a third model they made a I should spell it out. I I found tennis. There's a larger one called the tennis max normally the larger phone is called like. The plus model they're getting rid of the word. Plus, they're calling it max because really this is a screen that is more screen in the previous plus models. So you're getting like being like six point five inches across the largest one, right? But there's also cheaper model cheaper seven hundred fifty dollars more or less has a lot of the same features. It's just made with different material LCD screen. It's just a little bit downgrade and aluminum, but you get colors, so they're trying to make it a little bit wider for anyone who didn't want to pay a thousand dollars. I still feel like you're getting all the cool features. When you're taking a look at these phones, comparing them to have the Samsung other Android phones, are you still paying for more phone than you need to compared to say Samsung or Android? Oh, man. I think a lot of the times you're paid for obviously the status of what you want show off. And and I think this whole hasn't tation really felt like it was back camera. Tricks. You know, being able to just just just take better photos, and isn't that what are some kind of become now just really expensive cameras, exactly. And there's so much for the actual phone conversation. And that's they also introduced some new features to their watch. Right. I think the big headline there is aside from being slightly larger screen about thirty percent or so larger you're getting more ways to track your heart. So there's there's new EKG sensor, so you can actually take your own EKG and be able to get alerts if you have an offensive or a low heart rate, so as an and it also can detect if you fall like they scientifically del these tests to know the difference me to fall in a trip and a slip. And if you don't move for a minute after you follow a call nine one one for you. Hopefully, you don't throw your phone around. Exactly what how much it costs. Yeah. It'll be face ID. Now to the big thing. I think people are gonna miss that home button. If they if they like your fingerprint scanner it's all face ID to unlock Bridget. Thanks. No problem. It's Bridget Carey from. KRLD? It's.

"He can follow on Twitter at Bridget Kerry. Bridget. How're you? Hey, good. It's accurate. I think so I know you had a fun day watching the hearings were some big tech companies were were being called before the Senate to answer all kinds of different questions. Let's start there. The first thing I want to discuss this this accusation of bias that they're purposely hindering conservative voices on their platforms. It's become an issue that the president spoken about recently. What got discussed on that front at the hearing today at the Senate hearing which was in the morning that really wasn't touched on as much as it has been in the past when big tech companies come to talk. I really this was more about a focus on, you know, what does there needs to be government? Regulation to kind of oversee these companies, in fact, one Senator from. Virginia said, you know, the era of the wild west and social media is coming to an end like there is really a discussion of what should be done. If anything by our government to kind of like have laws a few teams, I feel my my take away. There was a lot of talk from Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook. And Jack Dorsey of Twitter that more needed to be done with transparency. There was almost at this talk of if you're on Twitter, shouldn't you be able to tell as a consumer as a user of Twitter. She didn't you'd be able to tell when you're talking to a human or robot. And a lot of the focus was was on, you know, fake accounts. It's a big problem at and and Jack Dorsey said, you know, what we you're not at a point where we can actually densify every single bought because a lot of them have such a sophisticated tech behind them mother acting like human, and so yeah, you can label. Maybe fifty percent of them are an I'm making that number up. You can label. Some of them. But you don't want to assume that everyone doesn't have the label as a human either. So they're kind of looking into that. I want to look into abuses of there. There was a lot of talk of you know, what can you do for people who are harassed online? He says he wants to make it. So you shouldn't if you're harass you shouldn't be it shouldn't be on you to report it. So there's a lot of a lot of talk of we have to do more. We wanna work with the government more. We wanna work with third parties to help us bought these things. In fact, talk to each other. So you can tell these tech companies want to do more. So they're not gonna face, you know, heavy regulation, and they want to have more of a discussion. And of course, Google was invited. But there was a no show from their CEO Larry page or even other heads of Google. There's just this empty chair sitting there in the Senate here he likely didn't go over. Well, I'm assuming no lots of snark about that. I mean, Google turns twenty years old this week and YouTube. Is the biggest video San planet, and it's a big destination for people with that intentions when it comes to spreading fake information. Right. And a lot of us today are getting information from social media. A pew reports that forty five percent of Americans get their news from Facebook YouTube is the second one behind eighteen percent of people get their news from YouTube. So that's why this is this is an important topic. Now over at the house hearing, which is still going on. It's just about Twitter. It's just about this issue of of of accountability. And there's still more and more talk of like me do more and and we're not quick enough on responding to to certain things. So I think I think there's there's some things that might come out of this. But in the end. Twitter. Yeah, there's massive it is. And and and I don't know if it's necessarily can change overnight or get better smarter. But clearly there no jackets this. He owes trying to sit there answering questions trying to show that he cares up making it faster because it doesn't do him any good as a business to have a platform where where a bunch of robots and other malicious abuses going on because you don't want to be on that platform. We're talking to see senior editor Bridget Carey here on PM Tampa Bay. It's our weekly tech segment on the anti conservative bias in in censorship issue. I I've kind of followed this there have been some instances where I looked at it. And I said that doesn't that doesn't seem right there have been others that have been proven to be nonsense that there was no bias there that the person who's alleging bias just got it wrong. I mean, what what are you hearing on that front from from Facebook and from Twitter, I know the president made an accusation about Google, but that's not to be true. What are you hearing about that particular issue where we're at all kind of really sparked recently was a free. It's shadow banning people were throwing that phrase around with the idea, they the hey certain congressmen and women when you search for their name on the Twitter search engine, they weren't like being shown automatically and Twitter corrected it when that was pointed out, but they said here, here's the deal. And I'm gonna be really simple about it. They have many factors to figure out with their computers. What's about what's a good user? What's about user? And those certain accounts were getting so many report, and it doesn't mean that they're legit. But other users were going in reporting blocking reporting blocking, and you know, what people do that in politics. Right. Other users get worked up, and so the computer was saying, oh, maybe this account has a problem because it's getting so many block so many reports, and they went in and said, you know, what, you know, clearly, we should not have made that a judgment call because we didn't think about politics, you know, influencing us so much. So when it came to, and that's what people in the house and the Senate. So he's he's right now talking about he's explaining that saying that, you know, this is how we learn. We're trying to figure this out because we're constantly going to be manipulated. And we have to keep changing with the times so many accounts, you know, try to work the system there is a lot of. Talk of of regulation has there been any discussion that you've heard in the tech world about letting the free market sort this out having others create competition that could go up against Facebook or Twitter, you know, and do a better job at some of these things or are they just so massive that that's almost impossible. There's talk. But I don't see anything happening anytime soon. There's just people throwing ideas that we should break up somebody's companies because they'll have more competition, and they're they're getting too big. And then there's the talk of well by by bringing these these tech giants in front of the house and the Senate they're really trying to get, you know, some behind the scenes, honest, look like are you doing these are like do we need to step in or Josh? Or are you going to figure this out yourself? And and and I think right now from the tone of Jack Dorsey Twitter that you know, he's he's been really diplomatic. And he's explaining very transparently. He must said things that make them not sound great. He said he'd listen if you sit down with a Cup of coffee and look at a terms of service. She will not understand it. We need to do a better job about that. Thinks he's showing that he doesn't want. You know, like or he doesn't think maybe it's necessary for the government to step in and make he's real. But you know, if there's not change we'll have to this is constantly evolving. Right, ben. And he also said something recently in terms of the liberal bias issue that social media has a left leaning bias just in terms of I think and correct me if I'm wrong, if this is not what he said. But I thought it had something to do with, you know, where they're located the people they have working for the company are generally a little more left leaning, but they're trying to make sure that that doesn't play a role in the operation of their of their products. Yes, he's a little more Frank when it comes to the way, he talks like others, and it's a little more honest. Yeah. He's there over in California. Obviously, you know, there's there's there's more folks at his company who who are one side and other liberal Republican. But they're saying that the purpose we have have no issues and and. Policies to take a side on whether or not the blocks for political reasons or downgrade them from being searched pompous political reasons he keeps talking about how this is a public square. He wants to be a healthy conversation, and that healthy conversation isn't about what's being said. Hey can a conversation have both sides. Can it be, you know, civil rights an echo chamber with just one person know harassing another. And so that's what they're trying to figure out, and it's not an easy formula to figure out from a computer. That's for sure we're we're doing our weekly tech segment would seen that senior editor Bridget Carey, it sponsor by connect wise. I think the the biggest issue to me is if they can find a way to get rid of the bots. So it, you know, a real person wants to say something horrible to somebody else. I mean that you know, you can report them and everything. But, but you know, I I don't know how much you can do about that necessarily if they're not harassing people. They just make a bad comment or take a a bad take on something. But you don't want it to be computer generated. You know, what I mean, you don't want it to be a program, you should know whether someone who's getting into spat with you in your reply is is a Bader not. I mean, it's quite surprising. Forget an same time. The Twitter built this whole system to be so open that they have no way of even really, you know, telling if a sophisticated computer program is faking it, and there was also talk of just more transparency. And and you as a user getting notified, maybe if you interacted with about that they've taken down like let's say there's a a Russian bought. That's right intimidatingly things. Should there? Be an Email that comes to your inbox going. Hi, we're Twitter didn't investigation, and we took on this account that you tweeted with just so, you know, it wasn't real because Facebook this up and so there was a push like, hey Twitter. Should you be doing the same thing that we know living people know if they've ever interacted or favorite an account that that wasn't true. What it was representing to be? And there's also talk of if they take a tweet down. Usually, you get this pages, this tweet, no longer exist. Should that page say this tweet no longer exists because it was found to violate XYZ reason? Should I see it gets? So at least there's there's not so it's it's seamless behind the curtain the great wizard of Oz. You know, you wanna know more about what's going on? So and that's why they're having these hearings. That's why people are so critical Google because he just there's this secret Grinham that will just bigger, and we're sitting here going, we'll figure what we want to know more. And that's why I limit my interactions with people on Facebook and Twitter these days unless I really. We know who they are. Because a lot of times people are hitting me up. And you know, maybe they have something nice to say, maybe they have something horrible. But but I don't really I can't really tell who they are. You know what I mean? Even if they have like a name and a picture, you go look at the profile, and you really can't tell if they're real or not so I just don't bother anymore. And I think it takes a little something away from the platform when that winds up being the case that blue checkmark that's supposed to say that they're verified who they really are Twitter stopped giving out blue checkmark because they've realized they had a problem reevaluating how they're giving out that check Mark. So no one's getting the checkmark anymore. I have one, and I generally those are the main people interact with people with blue check marks. Because mo-. I mean, you're more often than not they're going to be real as opposed to somebody who doesn't have one. I have no idea who they are. Right. Exactly. A scene at senior editor Bridget Carey. We have a whole stack of things that we didn't get to. But this was really the big topic of conversation. I want spend a lot of time on it today. It's been fascinating to follow. You can follow her on Twitter at Bridget. Carey bridge off to catch up on some of the things that we didn't get to next week. Thanks so much for joining us. We always appreciate it. I thank you next week coming up in the next segment. We'll do our weekly TV segment with TV guide. Senior critic Matt rouse, lots to talk about with him. Also, some new tweets from president that we have to get to in the final segment of the show packed final half hour here on PM Tampa Bay. Don't move CBS ion veterans presented by theraworx relief..
