Square scoops up Tidal

"News in the streaming music business. Recently as financial tech companies square announced a deal to acquire the majority ownership of the music streaming service title as part of the deal according to the associated press square will pay two hundred ninety seven million dollars in cash and stock for title jay z. Who helped start. The streaming service will be named two squares board of directors and he is well as other artists who currently own shares entitle will stay on stakeholders now title has presented itself as an artist friendly alternative to other music streamer square ceo. Jack dorsey who also happens to run twitter. Said they'll come up with new ways for artists to support their work. Now mike i know that you have been a title subscriber for a long time. What's that experience like compared to some other services like spotify or apple music. Yeah well. I wrote about title backman. Jay z created. his artists. consortium overseeing The service back in two thousand fifteen and got the got the service back up and running with a relaunch and i became a subscriber. Right after that I like to support any business. Effort that provides higher fidelity stream music most streaming services deliver. Mp three quality level which can sound brittle just not great It doesn't matter if you're listening on cheap headphones or anything but if you're pipe it out to a good set of headphones you've got speakers from around your computer. Orienteer- home Sound system or if you're downloading music onto your phone or whatever and then putting in the car i mean you just need better quality music and titled gives you at least cd quality or better but there's always been this concern about titles ability to survive long term against spotify another services. I mean i like the experience the software and everything that title has comparable to spotify and apple music. I use all those services. I also use amazon But titled i think probably is my favorite This deal square should help titles ability to survive. You know Because you know squares is a pretty big company Compared to title Meanwhile we've seen spotify announced its own plans to make higher fidelity music available in the near future and amazon music has high risk streaming. So just having titling business seems to be good for music lovers you know and consumers and if square is going to help do more for artists. I think it's all good. And it almost sounds like title was ahead of the game now because now that spotify amazon music or introducing their own hi rez streaming options title. Almost feels like they are way ahead of the game on this. It's really interesting obviously. Didn't start in the us And it wasn't issues. You know once titled control. Jay z and appeal title. Got to look at the books. They were upset because i as many users as was supposed to be there when it started. But there's as the as the cd died off and this is as you know the vinyl the vinyl rebirth or whatever as was kind of growing you had this issue where the services are launching with not a lot of you know bandwidth so you would get these low risk sounding services and you know there is consumer there are consumers that wanna pay more title. It costs nineteen ninety nine a month for the higher quality streams. But you know if you're not playing albums and you're not playing cds whatever and that's the way you listen to music. It's certainly worth it in my

"Mass protests in Myanmar against the military coup just over a month ago. Wednesday was one of the bloodiest day so far with reports that 38 people were killed after the security forces opened fire on the demonstrators. And yet today Thursday, large numbers of protesters are back on the streets despite that threat of lethal violence. This footage was taken in Yang gone the main city and captured the sound of stun grenades and tear gas being fired at demonstrators. have also been reports the live rounds of again being used today. Well, the protesters reinforced barricades with tires and barbed wire, many chanting in protest. Been talking to one leading pro democracy activist in Myanmar, also a former TV host in Yangon. She's thin zah suddenly who's been telling me more? Do we have in horror, serious, fatal shooting yet, But we've been hearing arrest being conducted by the police and authority. So and also we'll worry about the detain people there. 1000 people already got detained and some of them are already ensured that they couldn't meet with their Even with the lawyers, But what lots of people are still come out onto the streets, even though it was so dangerous yesterday exactly. Despite all these brutal killing yesterday, But today we witness large numeral people even more than yesterday, you know, get on street, especially on those area with the brutal Crackdown in me engine in mo. Your more people in Ah, in a township level protest happening the whole day today, but on people scared, scared for their lives. Obviously, people are scared for our life that we are more scared off the future like our generation's future If we don't resist if we don't Ricks our life right now than our generations. You can't would live with us forever. And what can you tell us about these reports of protesters barricading blocking off their streets? That happened since the crack house that it so in yesterday as well in no local Oppa, where the Buddha crackdown happen in the angle the block in the last gig in the main road. So that military track cannot come in. So and then, when we can block the roads, then the protester can protest in their own place in a safe are, you know in the far distant place? Um, not just make sure very Kate. You know, because the military you nick and military in Yemen are patriarchal societies. Also now woman are using their and the well, you know, as buried as a barricade as well. So you can see today's photo. These soldiers are so busy picking up you know all these trying to destroy all these very gay because they can't get in and under the woman and away because they feel like if they go into that, then they don't have any dignity at all. This is a kind off social norms that they have religious noon. So it's stop them. It was actually working on. Is it true that some members of the police have bean abandoning their uniforms and going over to the protesters? Is that right? It's not like they're going directly to the protest area is like they're deciding the police stations and they're joining the CD M 70 so we don't movement because of the brutal killing. They would not the experience and they couldn't Um well, they orders anymore. So we're seeing today more more. Policemen are joining the civet. So Vidia movement, But how many is it Just is it just a few Compared to the other day. It was more like we're seeing around 30 30 like as reported from the new sources around 30. Police meant, um in the nationwide level are joining. I think They have many more were not reported. You know, even I was helping. Ah, police meant, you know, running off in the early morning just yesterday because he couldn't wait any day. You know any longer, Tonto to get our office Police stations were about to speak to the United Nations Human Rights Office in in Geneva. I just wonder what would you say to them? The United Nations being in phone about me or my situation for a long time since 30 years ago, the ethnic minorities from my country are being reported about the project killings, arbitrary arrest and all these things. Find the same army in the same pendant. You know, indiscriminately doing the same thing to us theory ruins of people as well. So the United Nations is already in for more than enough.

Trey Mancini's Struggle and Strength

"Sedan baseball fans. Probably know trae mancini as this really good power hitter on a not so good team but can you give us a quick snapshot of his career before he broke out under the scene in major league baseball. Yeah he was never thought to be the guy so he had to keep working every single level to prove himself. He started out in high school in florida. was when a really good team there but he was the first baseman he was right handed hitter and so he didn't get a whole lot of looks. His name and number is up at his high school. You own the big placard but the numbers wrong. It's actually number eighteen instead of number sixteen which is number there. That's kind of almost indicative of the things that he is going through that he's always been kind there but there's always been a player on his team or something and he's always been kinda overshadowed basically. He went from rung to rung to wrong in the minor league. Ladder finally made his debut in september of twenty sixteen and basically exploded those first few games that one in the air left-center field has dave sadegh first major league at his mom beth getting your round the basis faster than anyone this year. Who is in a home run and then in two thousand seventeen was fantastic and ended up being third-place rookie of the year behind. Aaron judge andrew benintendi in the american league. And just how good was he during the twenty nineteen season. Oh he was by far the best player. Understand you thirty five home runs. You really broke out. Towering fly ball left center field. Hit hard by trae man's cd way back in the wall. Hey goodbye homerun. He should have been there all star but when your team is bad as your only get one all star pick and john means was having a good season for the orioles as well so they went with a picture instead of manzini but he was absolutely breakout. Star back goes that god does get on the board. O est back cd hot getting four point seven five million so a huge jump and he is poised to be one of the better younger players in the american league so heading into the twenty twenty season. It sounds like his baseball career really his life. Were just in a great place. Oh yeah it was going exceptionally well for him in pretty much every aspect of his life including he started dating a woman who had been one of the on field reporters for the orioles. Forget this you home runs for infield heads for you. What's on the difference maker up to this point last year honesty. If you'd sarah perlman she's now works for nbc sports. She had left the orioles in july. What does it mean to close out. Games like doesn't get the w. carnival. Not exactly how he drew it up towards the end there but and that was going really well at the beginning of a new relationship he just become a millionaire for the first time. Everything was going perfect for him. Going into two thousand twenty and dan walk us through what happened in march of twenty twenty so like all baseball players. They get their annual physical when they get to the spring training camp and he did his regular physical bloodwork everything else and then around march. I the athletic trainer came to him and said. Hey your blood's a little wonky like your iron levels are pretty much low you all the way throughout and basically you saying you know. I don't want to scare you. But i think you're having some sort of internal bleed that's causing. It could be stomach older. It could be healy activities. Or you know there. An can't that I remember them. Asking if i had a family history of colon cancer and i said yeah my dad had obviously they did some more tests and they decided you know what we need to get your co nas copy. Because things don't look right. They had the colonoscopy and they told me found a major mass in his colon

Spotify Wants To Sell You CD-Quality Music

"I'm happy to be in your earbuds because today we have a story about sound right now. You're listening to a podcast which means the audio you're hearing has been digitally compressed. The highest highs and the lowest lows of the range of sound. You're hearing have brought closer together. Compression generally make sound a little easier on the ears. Well one company. That deals heavily in sound says compressed audio is so out spotify announced last week that it would be adding an additional service to its music subscriptions lossless audio as in sound in its purest form not compressed which means music has more depth and clarity. If you're struggling to imagine what that sounds like just think back to a bygone era remember cds because they're not usually compressed cds deliver lossless audio naturally and spotify. Says it wants to return to that without you. Know making cds thing again spotify. Hi fi will be available to subscribers in select markets later this year. It'll cost more than the nine ninety nine per month users currently pay although spotify hasn't said how much more they say hi fi will let the most discerning listeners. Experienced the music the way artists intended it. The company is just the latest hop on the lossless audio train or i should say track in two thousand. Nineteen amazon rolled out amazon music. Hd for fifteen bucks a month or a little less for prime members and streaming service title offers lossless audio for twenty dollars a month reports the verge but neither rival comes close to spotify's user numbers spotify counts around one hundred fifty five million paid subscribers worldwide while amazon music. Expect to hit forty million this year and it's estimated that title only has around five million subscribers spotify says its users have been asking for higher quality audio so now that it has it it may spell trouble for spotify's smaller competitors but one big name is notably absent from the list of lossless audio providers. And that would be apple music apple. Subscriber numbers are inching up. They hit a little over seventy million subscribers last year and with roughly the same number of songs available as spotify. It would figure that spotify would wanna keep apple at arm's length hence spotify move towards something. Apple does not have and is reportedly not planning to have a paid tier for lossless music apple and spotify have been dealing for a few years in another space. Which you may be familiar with if you're listening to this right now. yes podcasts. While the term more than a decade ago a mix of its ipod and the word broadcast spotify is looking to be the latest dominant force in podcasting unclear at times exactly which companies doing more in the field. Some reports put apple on top in terms of podcast downloads and revenue others put spotify on top either way each companies looking for ways to edge away from the other when it comes to podcasting and for apple that means toying with the idea of a paid subscription service for its podcast library which has always been offered for free bloomberg reported the plans in january and says apple is also aiming to ramp up its creation of original podcasts spotify. Meanwhile plucked one of the country's top. Podcasts the joe rogan experience and made it a spotify exclusive at the beginning of this year. They also recently announced plans to roll out the spotify audience network which it calls a first of its kind audio. Advertising marketplace advertisers will be able to connect with listeners through quote a broad range of content. Spotify said in a statement. The company says the marketplace will allow creators to earn more for their work while delivering a greater impact for advertisers unquote. Podcast wars aside a lossless music tier four spotify seems to be the latest attempt to get the edge on apple for apple though lossless. Music doesn't seem to be on the horizon at least publicly. In fact apple enthusiasts media outlet apple insider said last week that during blind tests twenty fifteen listeners couldn't seem to discern lossless audio from compressed audio being played on an iphone that might mean lossless music might only be a boon for the most discerning listener.

Douglas Stuart Reads Kevin Barry

"Hi douglas debra. How are you. I'm alright welcome when we talked about doing this. You had originally been inclined to choose a scottish story to read on the podcast but in the end you settled on an irish one. Do you think that the two traditions are interlocked. The certainly have a very close relationship. But even in reading the kevin body still here realized how much of the pronunciation and the expressions weren't familiar to my ear and so although the close they are quite different in terms of This story it feels a little like a fairy tale in a sense. I mean it has that sort of fable like quality to it. And i feel so it may work in a tradition of irish fables. To what you think you think it's certainly in that tradition of irish oto storytelling. It starts off with You know the narrator. Saying so. I bought an old hotel in the fjord of killary and just the way he brings you into the story. You have a sense that not only as a fable but it's the type of story we would pass around in pubs and from most both and that i think is the irish tradition and certainly the scottish tradition. Because sometimes when we don't find ourselves in literature it doesn't mean we're not natural-born storytellers and those oral stories. Don't always get written down. That is absolutely true here. And i think that's part of the charm of this is just the mixture of these canisters. When you see it almost feels quite other-worldly at times. And i chose the story because first of all it's just totally entertaining but also because it made me nostalgic for a time when we could gather and and be together without thinking about the consequences about the weight that comes with with those gatherings. Yeah yeah having scenes in a in a pub with everyone talking it feels like another world. That's true did you read the story when it first came out in two thousand ten. I didn't actually. I was led to kevin body short stories. Because norma s- fan of his novel night bhutan. Jere and i was thinking about what i wanted to read. I love kevin. Barry and i was actually surprised to see. He has published many stories in the new yorker. Yeah the first one. I believe and Do you think that this one sort of fits in with his general themes it. Does i find him always writing about masculinity especially men on the margins. But what's interesting about this is. There's an absence of hard man or criminals or Petty gangsters that he often populate has novels these other short stories. These are just people who are gathering together in a pub And there's a poet at the heart of it. We'll talk some more after the story. And now here's douglas stuart reading fjord of killary by kevin berry fjord killary so i bought an old hotel on the fjord of killary. It was set hard by the harbour wall with moody amount across the water and disgracefully gray skies above. It rained two hundred. Eighty seven days of the year and the locals were given to magnificent mood swings on the night in question. The rain was particularly violent. It came down. Like handfuls of neal's flung hard and fast by a cd asli royal sky. God i was at this point eight months in the place and about convinced that it would be the death of me. It's end to the fucking world stuff out there. I said the quotas of locals and the hotels lounge bar as always ignored me. I was a fruitful blue in by their mark and simply not cut out for tough gnarly west of ireland. Living there were listening instead to jon murphy or alcoholic funeral director. Albury anything that fucking moves. He said bastards suicides tinkers. He said i couldn't give a fuck monkeys he said. Maria is the most depressing mountain you've ever seen by the way and it's gone looming shape filled almost every view from the water's edge hotel. The loans bars included the locals drank. Mostly bushmills whiskey and guinness stout and they drank them to great excess. I wiped they're slobs from the counter. With the bar cloth i had come to hate with a passion verging on the insane.

WIRED Correspondent Adam Rogers Talks 'Wild Tech' Built Into Perseverance

"So adam. Let's start with a couple of notable things about this rover one. It's collecting and to you. Just wrote a story on wired dot com this week about the cameras on perseverance and how they actually perceive imagery much differently than we do. Tell us about this. And why this is significant for this mission will. there's something almost philosophical. You have to address if you're going to send not people to explore another planet but robots which is you're trying to acquire like sensory information and some of that some of that can be quantified can be sent back as data. You know the numbers for certain for certain analyses that you can send an instrument to do and i. I can talk about some of that but some of it. Is you want to send a robot that can look at stuff that can hear stuff in this case they can sense this world. And then that that information through the sensory organs the mechanical sensor organs the technology. That you send the microphones and the cameras and the sensors instruments and then it has to get home has to get back to us somehow. Us not wired reporters but jet propulsion laboratory and then the whole vast team of humans who process all of that through their own machinery and then it becomes something that they can that they can look at. Its this this. Arc of how data becomes information and then becomes knowledge so we humans send these robots to mars to some extent to learn how to send better robots to mars a lot of the instruments on perseverance. That's the rover that's there now are versions of instruments that went up on other missions and now they kind of the scientists that jpl and are all these universities. Nasa know how to make them work to do more what they wanna do which is to look at their surroundings in ways that that we humans would would. Would i be able to identify easily as looking at stuff to to see things in the colors that human is also see we were standing there and also to look at them multispectral hyperspace literally and other parts of the electric spectrum that human i wouldn't perceive but the eyes of this rover is in scare quotes that i'm making on a on a screen even though this audio medium so that's not helpful at all. The eyes of this rover can see into the little bit into the ultraviolet partway into the infrared. And and also can see x-rays and have an are using a laser project light outward to obliterate some bits of rock. And see what what happens when you do it. And to listen with microphones that that might be more sensitive than human ear. Then all of those things get get reduced transformed or changed in some way into meaningful knowledge so that we can understand more about what what's on this other planet where humans have never been but humans have sent a lot of our stuff. You're saying that each brand has gone up tomorrow. At least the ones that we have had progressively better technology on them with each version. And i think it's kind of interesting that this rover that just went up now. Perseverance is essentially the first rover of the iphone era. Curiosity launched in two thousand eleven and it was designed for a period of five or six seven years before that so the imaging technology on it is very representational of like that time in imaging technology the imaging technology that we have now and the imaging technology that we have on. Perseverance is pardon the pun astronomically better than the tech that we had ten years ago. I mean if you think about like how bad your instagram photos. Were in two thousand eleven. And how fantastic they can be now. You can see just like as far as mobile technology goes and just imaging sensors. The leap has been huge. That's a it's a really interesting observation. I think that's right. Although i will also say that like one of the one of the instruments that i wrote about is called the masked kim z. And so it's this. This binocular camera to cameras linked together left and right eye on top of the tower. That's on the rover so sits up a little. Bit high zina's presume because there was a mass cam on curiosity the z. Has zoom capability and it does a bunch of stuff. It's there to identify targets of interesting scientific potentially interesting scientific value and also to be able to look around and navigation and take pictures and do a whole bunch of other stuff. The the ccd the charge coupled device the optical sensor the to in mass are off the shelf kodak cds and they have the they have in front of them the bear pattern of pixels. The probably gonna get this wrong but like the red green blue. I think that that's that would be familiar. That if you if you could look into your phone you would see it. And then mass games does what. The experiment instrument is take advantage of some capabilities that our phone cameras. Don't really do to do much more. Because because the also can see into the infrared a bit and so if you put the right filters in front of them you can do even more science with them so there is some sense that we send up a camera. That would be the same camera that a lot of people have in their pockets right now sitting on their sitting on their desk. I can get sort of derivative about but there's something important i think in the pictures that are starting to come back already. That include parts of the rover itself and people will describe those as celsius as mars selfie camera taking pictures of itself and and nasa among all agencies is very very good at At its own promotional work saying like. Here's the thing. Here's the picture of the thing we're doing. There are pictures. There's video of the landing which was dramatic but also like the video of the landing. Is there to video of the landing has engineering value but also publicity value. But but i think the calling it. A selfie also includes the recognition of the the. It's not personal because of course it's not a person of the machine hood of the individuality of the humanness of the technology that that we sent that has to do a thing there. That's doing technological work and and seeing mars through a kind of filter that's akin to but slightly different than the filters that if mike if you took that billionaire ticket up tomorrow how you would see through the visor of your of your back suit

Times Square, NYC Then And Now

"If you haven't been. I will make sure that you feel like you have. I hope that you enjoy this episode. You know new york city is fantastic. And i love it a matter of fact i have been there many times and i used to live there as i will tell you in this episode but i also want to tell you that it was in the late seventies and eighties entered the nineties. That new york city star to lose its attraction. It started to lose the people that came to visit and it star to be a real dumpster. People didn't want to visit new york anymore and so it was the governor's the mayor's and police commissioners started to take back new york city rebuild new york city one step at a time starting with times square in nineteen eighty eight is to murray hill in new york city. I lived in a three story. Walk up but first and second avenue on thirty first street not exactly prime real estate but safe enough. It was near the united nations and right above the entrance to the queens midtown tunnel Now you know if you are a new yorker or visited new york you know exactly where i lived then a couple of years later i found myself living in the salvation army apartment building for women. It was ideal. It served two meals a day and it was right across the street from the much coveted. Grammercy park the oh so glamorous and it was a close walk to eighteenth street between fifth and sixth avenues where i worked. I thought it was a dream. Come true and it was. I never really ventured to the west side past sixth avenue or anywhere near times square. Well that's what we're talking about. Today is times square and new york city. Everything i needed was right around where i lived but times square was unmistakably a major part of the city no doubt a black guy on the city a disappointment to the twelve hours of manhattan and somewhere that was to be avoided if wanted to dodge trouble darkness dealings and drugs. If you have seen the two thousand and nineteen movie joker with walking phoenix. Ps and by the way. I suggest that you might have an idea of the area and new york city. That was the cd and trashy times square. The closest thing. I can compare it to is a scenes in the movie joker to find a seedier place was difficult when they were filming. The movie and times square didn't look like does today so in the two thousand nineteen movie joker with no cd place to replicate times square. Really the producers of the movie had to go to newark new jersey a real old fashioned pit hole. If ever there was one to newark that was of the same timeframe as the movie never fixed up and never given a real chance to survive and today's society. It's a real shame but it depicts it perfectly times square where beauty came to die. No kidding in nineteen eighty six. When i was there there were multiple pornographic theaters and times square. The motion picture association of america introduced its rating system that included an x rating dip became associated with pornography. And so all the movies that were in times square were x. rated or the dreaded triple x. and everything was pornography back then pornography and. I should say drugs. The times square as a porn capital error was part of new york city's in the seventies and eighties amid its fiscal crisis. And later the crack cocaine epidemic which was rampant and it wasn't until the mid nineteen eighties that there was a push to clean up times square and new york city

Spotify's New HiFi Subscription Tier. What Is It?

"As i'm recording this spotify just wrapped up its spotify stream on event in which it announced a bunch of stuff including new tools for creators. Monetize ing options even an ad marketplace for podcasts. Which might be too in the weeds for our purposes. Although i reserve the right to reassess that later what is probably more interesting for normal. Consumers for at the moment is the fact. That spotify is launching a new subscription product. Later this year called hi fi that will offer cd quality lossless audio. Quoting the verge. Spotify has done small tests of higher quality streaming in the past. But now it's going to launch the feature more widely with the caveat that it'll be available only in select markets and pricing is yet to be announced higher quality streaming has apparently been among the top requests from its customers as it stands today spotify tops out at three hundred and twenty. Kbps audio amazon rolled out amazon music hd in two thousand nineteen. The lossless plan costs. Fourteen dollars ninety nine cents per month or twelve dollars. Ninety nine cents per month for prime customers a premium over the standard amazon music unlimited service title. Which has supported high resolution audio since its very beginnings price slightly higher at nineteen dollars ninety nine cents per month for the hi fi plan title offers. What it calls title masters that go up too. High resolution ninety six kilohertz twenty four bit audio smaller services like cuba's have also sought to appeal to audio files with lossless streaming apple music on the other hand still lacks any kind of lossless streaming tier despite apple selling the very high end airpods max headphones and quote which you have to figure might be about to become an untenable situation.

He says those new variants could easily lead to a rapid rise in covert 19 cases refreshing its calls for people to postpone travel and continue wearing masks and social distancing. UK and South African variants are thought to be more transmissible. The CDC cited a study of cases in Zambia, which shares a lot of commerce and travel with South Africa, and says within a month the number of variant cases there grew 16 fold. CDC says the UK variant is spreading rapidly here in the U. S, and could be the dominant strain sometime next month. Marco Malard ABC News Talk

Bring Me Chocolate Or Bring Me Dead Stuff

"All right emily kwong lay some of that chocolate goodness on me. You got it because chocolate is the true meaning of valentine's day only chocolate. This pure can be this. So i love you but lactose intolerant. Why are you doing this to me. I thought about this. The thing that gives chocolate. Its flavor is dairy free. Did you know cocoa comes from a fruit that grows these amazing looking multicolored cacao pods and i was. Cd's read things hanging from the trees. While what are these things. This is food scientists. Darren ostrom suka at the cocoa research center at the university of the west indies. Speaking with simmons safety and our friends at life kit about his fascination with cacao pods. It's like it's like a football shape. Fruit it can be smooth. It can be wate. it can have ridges. Darren saw these pods all over the place. Growing up in trinidad and tobago. They grow on the couch. Frey or theobroma cacao in under story crop of the tropical rainforest meaning they grow pretty close to the ground and the exterior of these pods is hard like it's tough but not so tough that critters can't break it open to go on a little cow binge correct if i was a squirrel. This would be what i would do. I mean absolutely. Darren breaks open a pod with a special tool kind of like a dull michigan it resists when gives time what it feels very satisfying on. Then when you twist the blade you hear a sort of crunch on you see opening insite describes the inside of the pod like a sticky cobwebs it has rows of caucases which he calls beans covered in this gummy white pulp called musa delicious mm-hmm usage and the aroma hits immediately. I'm spending my and it smells. Citrusy like like citrus flowers. It's like a subtle perfume Yeah there's so much flavor potential in these cacao beans at this point once the pot is opened fermentation begins so after. The seeds are removed from the pod. They're collected and transported to an area where they can ferment for days. Yeah and naturally occurring microbes breakdown. Those beans unlock their flavor notes. I i did not know that. Quang i mean for meditation gotta love it. Kind of sounds like like wine a little bit. Maybe a little bit. Yeah kinda if you think of cacao beans grapes and the tastes does reflect the ecosystem from which it came. The beans are then sorted roasted and sold to chocolate-makers to become the chocolate. You know and love. it can be fruity. it can be floral. It can be bright. So i like to think of a flavor profile that cuckoo offense to be like a good piece of music is we. What makes a good piece of chocolate is a harmonious 'presentation of flavor notes that in balance with each other at the coco research centre. He works on the level of genetics and with farmers to optimizing flavor and adopting their crops to climate change and disease. Darren even works with the cacao. Farm used to pass as a child. Chocolate is something he just can't stay away from is like with ocala. Florida is she. You can check out anytime you want. But you've been the relieve gets on the skin and it becomes your positive your consciousness so for me. I don't really work at a job. I work at

CDC recommends double masks to protect against COVID-19

"New cdc report showing that tightly fitted masks. Make a difference and that a tightly fitted with a cloth mask over it. Double masking as it's called is also effective. A new study from the cdc suggested that double masking putting a second mask on you. That fits really tightly actually can protect you from covid better than a single mask. Let's get some info on this. We got someone who ran the cdc at one point. Dr richard besser was the former acting director there. He now leads. The robert wood johnson foundation. Dr beshir can we start with the practical stuff. What is the current recommendation at this point when it comes to wearing masks like how many do we need. What type do we need right. Well brad at the highest level. The recommendation is that everybody should be wearing masks. Glad that we have a reasonable thinking governor who has lifted the mandate. I don't wear a mask unless i am made to. I see so many people. Today who aren't wearing any mask and even wearing a single mask will reduce the likelihood that if you have cohen you'll spread to someone else and will reduce the chances that if someone near you has cova that you will breathing in and get infected date ever used from cdc today underscore the importance the importance of wearing a mask correctly and the cdc's said in their study and this and this was published in the wr which is their journal of record is is that wearing cloth mask on top of a surgical mask or or the procedure massive. They're the same thing will improve the fit. And that's what this is about when when you put a mask on. There are gaps around the side of that masks. There may be gaps around around your nose but if you wear a surgical mask that has a wire at the top and you pinch it on your nose and you put a cloth mask on top of that. It will ensure that there aren't the the leakages sides of that surgical. The surgical does a lot of the work. And then the cloth is there to prosecute against your mouth exactly because if you just put on a surgical mask with with doing anything else. What you're going to find is that it doesn't fit tightly on the sides there big gaps there but that cloth mask fits properly over over. Your ears will will hold that surgical mask in in place and in their studies found that this reduced the amount of particles by by over ninety percent well fitting mast provided the greatest performance Blocking emitted aerosols and exposure of aerosols to the receiver. They cautioned though that. Don't take those numbers and say and assume they're going to try to you because they tested one type of cloth mask and one type of surgical mask but the general principle is a good one. That wearing a cloth mask over surgical mask will help. They give some other alternatives as well. This includes wearing a mask with the most mold. Fire nodding the ear loops on your mass. You cannot decides of a surgical mask and if you go to their website they'll show you what they mean by that so that it will fit better on the sides of your face or you can you can purchase. What's called a mask fitter which is like a plastic or nylon device. That goes over your mask that that helps it fit on. your face. looks the neck gaiter. That were always saying. They're not great mask but this looks like a neck gaiter. It's good for that yes some of our navigators and some are like a plastic frame that holds it on your face but the takeaway from it is is really this that wearing a mask as good but making sure it fits properly is is really important and will increase the benefits that you get well so okay so i understand that scientific conclusions change with more data right. I get that but just so we're clear like can we walk this back early on. Cdc was saying hey. We have no reason to recommend mask. We haven't seen any in july of last year. Data does come in. They they change it to what we do recommend mask. It's really there to protect other. People won't necessarily protect you. Then november comes around like actually does protect you. We started to see that data and now a full year after covid reaches american shores. Say oh actually. I just want us to masks are actually really good. Like is that counterproductive at one point when when we feel like the guidance shifts month after month well you know one of the advantages. We have now that we didn't have last year is that we're having cd scientists out front explaining what they're learning. How someone who are tired of hearing about masks as well as tired about of wearing masks can be cumbersome they can be inconvenient mass growing is not to make your life mess comfortable and we're seeing our political leaders stand up and say the exact same thing next few months masks not vaccines are the best defense against cove nineteen and hopefully that will allow people to take this in and say you know. I've been hearing a lot about these. These strains of the virus these mutants that can spread more easily. There's actually something i can do until you get vaccinated. Hopefully that will help people you know not feel like no one knows what they're doing but i feel like people providing answers as this is changing and that is a good thing. We can adapt ever ever so slightly if we need to.

Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?

How to Money

Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?

"So first of all. Let's talk about how you get money in the first place and that is earn it right and according to the pew research center Women earned eighty five percent of what men earned in two thousand eighteen That pay gap is shrinking Particularly for younger workers which is a positive trend but that is still a meaningful hurdle to overcome. The pay. Gap is partly due to to work history. You know like having kids great you know. But as we mentioned with the fidelity study earlier taking time off to have quetta's like it often leads to job offers in worse income prospects not to mention the years of not generating any income which often reflects years of not investing in a workplace retirement account in particular. If there's a match there right and those are some big disadvantages to overcome yell like you said at the beginning matt that stat also reflects some structural issues when it comes to male and female pay. But here's another thing to matt When we're talking about pay women are actually often averse to asking for more money than their male counterparts. There was a survey from ron saad. Last year the found that sixty percent of women have never negotiated with employer. Overpay women are also more likely to stay at a lower wage job to according to The personal finance web site the balance. And that's not good right because even just a small bump in pay with a new employer or in a job that been in for years can have just a massive impact on your ability to earn more throughout the years and then also save more for retirement. So i think of all of the things in this episode where we see. Maybe you know women as sex falling short. It is in in the ability to ask for more at knowing what they're worth again. This is another instance where you might be listening and you're thinking i've never had a problem negotiating a race like i've never had a problem asking for more money so again. It's important to keep in mind that though the research shows us like we know any totally doesn't apply to everyone. I'm specifically thinking of two conversations with Kirstin and julian saunders. The couple behind rich and regular that was episode. Eighty six and julianne was just bragging. About how great pearson is at negotiating. Evidently she's just like the queen negotiating more. Pay if you had to listen to that upset go back and listen to that one. Is that regardless of your gender. Earning more it's just so important right and all of us could stand to our abilities on that front And we've had lots of different conversations on the show that specifically cover you know not just stories of individuals negotiating but just how to go about doing that. I'm of Ramiz sadie that was Backing up said one ten and he outlined a great process a great method You know when it comes to wanting to up your salary. You know what steps you need to take. In order to negotiate a solid race gam thinking to matt had far new darabi on the show. She is just awesome personal finance expert and at the same time. She is someone who has made a killing as a small business owner. She knows her worth. she knows. how to negotiate. Yes so like you said there are many women out. there are crushing it. Who don't have a problem and asking for what they're worth. Who don't have a problem asking for a raise. It's just when you read those statistics. There are obviously a number of women who do though. And i wanna see. That number changed for the benefit of women as a whole absolutely. Let's about spending to do women spend more. That's an interesting question. My wife personally met hates to shop. I really. She just defies the stereotypes. And actually i don't know i don't mind shopping. A little bit roles are a little bit reverse exactly but there was a study by the wharton school of business that found that women are more likely to view shopping as a recreational activity. My mom definitely fits that bill Most men wanna leave the store with their purchases quickly as possible but even though women enjoy shopping more it turns out men still spend more than women in a typical year so while men might not enjoy the process of shopping as much. They still shopping. Just from a utilitarian standpoint sure yeah also that increase spending with the stats as well. There's there's a survey from wallet hub earlier this year. They showed that men are more likely to max out a credit card. Women are apparently seven percent less likely than men to have maxed out credit card at least once in so while women they might enjoy the shopping experience. More than men do a lot of different stats. Show that women are more cost conscious. They're more likely to shop at alice. Stores more likely to to wait till something they want is actually on sale The store brands more than men. And so you know when it comes to spending this this is definitely a win in this category for sure And so i i of see this as a call to min to stop spending so much money on neighboring items fan. Yeah i feel like. I'm totally guilty of this. I totally fall into the study. I don't like to go looking for the best deal. I do because i'm spending less but like i'll look at maybe two or three different sites and then i just purchase right whereas for you like i feel you are so good at hunting and making sure you're keeping your eyes on the best deals out there making sure that you're spending the the least amount of money possible. I feel that's something that we all need to make sure that we're doing right. And so you know regardless of who you are. We should all work to just become a little more conscious and how it is that we spend our money. I gotta say mets. I don't care whether you're man or woman but store brands should be high on your list because they're going to save you a ton of money it's just like in savings when you go for the storebrand over the name brand equivalent unless it's your craft beer equivalent And you're wanting to spend a little bit more on the because it makes you feel nice. Can't name brand everything though. I think i think sometimes that's a tendency here. Maybe that men have The men just gravitate towards the name brand no matter what it is without thinking about it and that's where we need to shake things up right and we we need to consider storebrand's more frequently also too. I think we've talked about this. The quality of store brand items has gone up a whole lot in recent years. Her kirkland signature brag. There's other ones too man. Like target has some great Store brands that are better than their name brand equivalent. Sometimes so yeah. It's not just costco yeah costco rockstar Let's see let's talk about saving as well. There's more good news here. It turns out that the the savings rate for women is actually higher than their male counterparts. They save a higher percentage of their pay. They spend less of what they bring in and much of. That is due to the more frugal. Tendencies that we just highlighted when we talked about spending differences but even the women are saving a higher percentage of their income on average. They've actually got less than thirty percent of what men have in savings accounts according to data from the federal reserve from a few years ago That is likely due to the fact that overall they're still making less like we discussed earlier which means a smaller amounts of money saved overall. Yeah one of the reasons. Women have a higher savings rate as well Is that according to a survey by. Us bank women of all ages value financial security more than men do. But here's the thing than that. Focus on financial. Security can often backfire. If you keep more of your overall assets and savings and cds instead of invested in the stock market right like savings for saving for long-term goals is really important but so is investing For the really long

How Canishiea J. Sams Is Changing the Nail Art Scene

"How long were you booth renting before you decided to create your own spot. So it's crazy. I was booth renting at two different salons before i got my nail studio which is like basically a room that i pay monthly on but it was like my room so before that i literally was like in open space like basically what she would call like the like when you come into a salon a greet you forgot what that spot is caught. But i was working in like open spaces like around everyone and that's not ideally. Want it but i knew like i'm going to have to start somewhere. It can't just be like what i want. And i taught me like a lot of like what i do like. And what kind of vibe and energy. I want for my space. So i think i worked boof raining for about two years before i got a nail studio and that was amazing. It was like my other studios have walls. I finally had a walls in door and it was amazing and i created the ambiance. I wanted and it really like my clients come in. They're like smell the central oils. She got the erica about do plan like just like i wouldn't switch that up on just like this is my vibe and i hope that attracts people that wanna see me. What other steps did you take. You know now that you have your own studio at this point did you formalize your business by incorporating or just officially make yourself a business so you go through a process of like state board you get establishment license. You get a tax business tax license. You pay your yearly fees has a manicure is and you know you. Get your your. Cpa like tax person. So you go through those little steps you get your insurance for your room. But at the same time. I was in a studio building with other people who are running their businesses. So next to me. I had exhibitions that working in their studios also so it was like a shared space but everyone had their own room. I've been to a space like that before. And by the way. I think that business model is so smart sleeper smaller super smart rather way everyone licensed. And that's what when you're going to these new very important. What was that investment. Like as you know a young mom going into this point. Was this something where it was. Easy peasy to pay for or did it require serious serious saving like. Can you tell us ballpark. What was that investment like. How did you prepare for it. The investment was steeped in a sense of like like me and my husband were in college or broke college when we decided like okay go to nail school can she so. My husband actually like i don't stay. I don't sell everyone to do this. Because i'm not a person about getting into debt for your passion but my husband put my nail school like half of the on his credit card and i was like. Oh man like it's official so we gotta do this and that's real that israel. Thank you for sharing that. We're not giving financial advice on this. Podcast everyone just disclaimer here. Okay exact all we're doing is sharing what people do all right exactly so we. It was expensive because of the type of nail art in the supplies. Like you have to make a major investment in yourself to kind of start out like nail school. They don't give you any of these things. It's basically like their sanitation in like step by step like how to keep your clients safe basically. But they're not teaching. You now are any of that stuff. I picked up that along the way so a lot of it was like investing in the best materials and stuff. So i'm pretty sure like it was in the thousands like lease up to seven thousand of just like you get one thing and you get the lap and then you get the product line and then you gotta start getting buffers and files like things that you constantly have to do. Maybe taking classes But a lot of things. I learnt on my own just through like practicing but a lot of it was like i did not know previously to going into like nails that it could be so expensive. I people think it's just polish in the site. Oh my god it's five million items so let's look at those early days of being a business owner. How did you balance the juggle of personal life. With being in business for yourself and the ebbs and flows of business. It was hard. I'm not gonna lie like it was really hard trying to figure out like my space my like my place in this industry at first you know Because it was like. I just moved to a new city and now those work like in our new cd. We didn't have much family. It was just like my uncle here so it was just like a lot of just like growing pains really beyond his and like the first two years of me like blueprinting. I wasn't necessarily super taking care of myself like when you're in the salon space you like gogo going. You're lying you like starting out so you take whatever incense your schedule's like hectic so i will work like evenings. My husband would get off work because we didn't have childcare so it was just like whenever like he worked during day and i will work in the evenings at night so i missed a lot of like saturday like sunday. Type situations a lot of dinners because we have opposite schedules so it was like really hard. And then it got to a point where i have to establish a set schedule my boundaries just for mental health purposes. And just like sanity like it's hard to separate your business in your personal life when they're very intertwined like that but it was so necessary in once i did that begin to like really enjoy it a lot more.

"cd" Discussed on Money Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for a Richer Life

"They typically have lower overhead which means they get to pass the savings along to customers in the form of higher interest rates. But I will say that. Local community banks and credit unions can offer very competitive CD rates when they're trying to attract more deposits. So you really need to shop around to find the best rate now. Let's talk about something called. Cd Ladder Ring. This is a common strategy to maximize earnings by using multiple CDs. Lateran just like you know crawling up a ladder you buy CDs with different maturity dates an annual yields each one represents a rung on a CD quote Unquote Ladder. That goes from shorter terms of two longer terms. So imagine that you bought a hundred thousand dollar traditional five-year CD. Paying one point. Seven five percent now. Think about how bummed out you'd be if you put all that money into a five year CD you locked it up and in interest rates went up. They went up to two point seven five percent. So you're missing out on a whole percentage point on your money if that happened. Let's say the following year you'd be missing out on earning more interest because you locked up your money at the lower rate at one point seven five percent for five years and you can't make a withdrawal without paying a penalty lateran. You might choose to buy five CDs with that hundred thousand dollars instead of just one for instance you could buy a twenty thousand dollar one year. Cd A twenty thousand dollar two years CD. Twenty thousand dollar three years CD and so on up to a five year CD after one year when the very first CD reaches maturity you could use all or a portion of the money to purchase another five-year CD so as your shortest CD matures. You can use that money to buy a longer term. Cd that presumably has a higher interest rate so this technique of lathering protects you against missing out on higher returns if interest rates do rise. You're going to get more money and get greater flexibility at the same time as each. Cd matures you've got the option to renew it at the current rate or to use your money for something completely different so you can use a CD.

"The minimum amount required to open a CD is generally five hundred dollars but it could be much higher depending on the institution and the type of CD that you buy and you can put an unlimited amount of money into a CD but to be safe. What I recommend is that you always stay under the FDIC or the NC. You a limit that I spoke about the two hundred fifty thousand dollars and that limit is per account holder per institution. So if you've got more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars you might want to spread it out at different institutions. So let's talk about what the downsides are of getting a CD that you know. The upside. Is I mentioned is a guaranteed return? The downside is that your money is locked up for a specific term that might range from a few months to maybe five years. So you get to choose the term when you're purchasing the CD and when that term ends you get back you're principle plus the accumulated interest? Cd's with longer terms generally yield the highest interest rates. However if you need the money and you need to withdraw money from a CD before it expires and that expiration date is known as the maturity date in that case you typically must pay a penalty and the penalty amount is typically calculated as an amount of interest depending on the terms so for example a one year CD might charge the equivalent of three months worth of interest if you dip into it so it's crucial to be sure that you will not need to withdraw any amount of money before the maturity date when you're buying a CD. So I mentioned that there are different types of CDs. There are some with a fixed term and interest rate..

"It was a very ugly story. And also like I said a warning not just to companies, but to consumers that be aware that anytime you are. Introducing anything to your computer. There are the their possible vulnerabilities, you could be introducing and some cases it could be really really intrusive. So you gotta be careful now this is not to say that the decline of the compact disc was instantaneous that the CD form factor when obsolete overnight it's stuck around for a really long time. In fact, it's only been fairly recently that some of the larger retailers have kind of moved away from selling CDs in the winter of. Two thousand eighteen retailer best buy announced that it was going to stop carrying compact discs in its stores starting on July first two thousand eighteen target. Meanwhile, when a slightly different route, they said they would continue so compact discs, but they would do it on consignment. So in other words, instead of ordering a large inventory of CDs and trying to sell them, you know, paying for that inventory trying to sell the CDs. And then if they didn't sell stock they would send it back to the the studio for credit for future stock instead of doing that. Now target says no here's how we're going to do it. We will sell copies of CDs. And for every copy we sell will send a little bit of money back to the studio. But otherwise, we're not doing it. So if you don't wanna work with us on that, you're not gonna have your CDs. Hell he'll carry it in our stores because people are buying so few of them now and it puts the risk of inventory on the music studios. Right. Other than on targets stores, and it just changes where the the the risk ends up falling that change has continued. Right. And really you could say that the writing was on the wall by two thousand fourteen when digital music sales over the internet were eclipsing CD revenue and even then digital was on the decline. It wasn't. It was already on the downward slope it had peaked at at that point. And was it was outperforming CDs, but both CDs ended it'll sales were starting to to lag behind like I said a moment ago in our next up Assode, we're going to explore the rise of the digital file Arab which leads into what we're seeing today with consumption moving more towards streaming services rather than downloading tracks or buying physical media. One thing. I want to shift you before I end this episode would be the evolution of video media in the wake of the D, the digital versatile disc or DVD evolved from the compact disc, it was effectively the second generation of the CD technology, even as companies like Sony and Philips were trying to get the D into the consumer market. They were simultaneously researching how to improve that technology in order to store even more data on it, including video with sound. That development would mostly happen behind closed doors for a little more than a decade among various companies by the mid nineteen nineties. There were two formats that had emerged from our indeed departments they weren't on the market yet. But they were almost ready and one was with Sony and Philips they had developed technology that they called the multimedia CD or M C D. Meanwhile, you had another group that. That was including the Time Warner group and to Sheba, and they had developed a different approach called these super density or SD disc. Neither side was eager to engage in an all out format war like the one that pitted. Betamax versus VHS and fractured the market. So instead, they decided that they were going to work together to develop a common standard between them, and it was mostly based off the SD format from two Sheba this became the DVD and by nineteen Ninety-six companies were starting to produce DVD players, which originally went on sale in Japan, and then expanded from there and like CD players when they first came out they were pretty darn expensive. But it actually the the path for DVD to hit widespread adoption it happened much more quickly than CD players did like a CD player..

One of the big reasons or actually two of the big reasons, why CD's weren't lucky was a double whammy it was in the form of computer advances and the development of audio compression file formats, primarily the MP three. We'll go into more detail about MP threes and other file formats and our next episode, but they definitely hurt CD sales. As time went on in two thousand the music industry. Saw a decline in CD sales in every year after that that decline continued and it got more dramatic in an effort to fight off the inevitable and also to combat piracy as computers were getting better at ripping music from CDs and writing it to a different disk companies began to incorporate digital rights management or DRM on their CDs. The idea was that this DRAM would limit how you could actually use the compact disc Sony's B M G music label did this. To disastrous results. It's one of the the big warning signs warning stories of DRM and unintended consequences or potentially unintended. Some argue that they were completely intentional consequences, which makes it even worse. So what was this all about? Well, let's say you go out and you buy an album that was from Sony's BMG label, and this is around two thousand five or two thousand six you buy the CD and you put in a normal CD player. Well, it would work just the way it was supposed to no problems there. You're just putting it in stereo system. Or maybe your car a little portable CD player. Whatever it works, just fine. However, if you were to put it into your computer, either to listen to it or maybe you wanted to rip a copy. So that way you had a backup something like that. Something else happened. There were some code on the disks that would prompt your computer to automatically install some software on your PC. The purpose of the software. At least the stated purpose was to prevent someone from making unauthorized copies of that compact disc in other words to prevent people from pirating the music, but the software also opened up a back door vulnerability on the person's PC. Meaning it was possible for a third party to infiltrate that computer and take control of it. In fact, essentially, what was happening was the CD was prompting the computer to phone home to Sony BMG's servers and to give information about how the person was using that CD. What was there? What were there? Listening habits. It was kind of spying on the consumer. And you could argue that the Sony B M G D RAM software was behave. Like, malware, like, a Trojan horse or backdoor vulnerability the discovery of the DRM led to class action lawsuits and a lot of pressure from the industry and eventually Sony would stop the practice completely by two thousand seven it was not a pretty picture..

"To the future it factors into the plot in the original back to the future. Anyway, by the mid nineteen eighty s Sony was trying to replicate the success of the walkman with a CD player. And the result was the disc, man. D fifty the world's first portable CD player. And while the d fifty had some shortcomings, it truly was an amazing technological achievement. See the D fifty was small, and it was about the size of maybe five or six CD cases stacked on top of each other. So that meant all the circuitry and all the components of a full-size CD player needed to be shrunk down to fit this tiny form factor. And this was just a couple of years after the full sized version of a CD player had come out. So it's hard to explain exactly how challenging this was. But here's an example, the optical path for the laser was a huge obstacle to work around the size, constraints Sony engineers had to figure out how to fold the optical path to make enough space for it to have the laser position in the right way for the disk on top of that the engineers had to custom build all the circuits. For the deficiency to both fit inside this small case and not immediately drained the batteries of all their juice, even so the d fifty was pretty power thirsty gadget as walkman central a fund website has explained you could buy a battery holder that would plug into the defeat to supply the electricity would.

"Once those price tags are more in line with our own personal budgets, some thankful for early adopters. I don't quite make the money to be won most the time anyway in the first year of sales Sony, sold twenty thousand CD players, which is not an enormous number. But it was significant for a brand new technology those going head to head with vinyl and the emerging cassette market and other companies besides Sony and Philips began to make players as well. And it's here that I mentioned that the first CD title, according to some sources wasn't Abba, nor was it a symphony. But was rather Billy Joel's album. Fifty second street in the last episode. I mentioned Abba and classical music were the first albums pressed to CD other sources call Billy Joel's album, fifty second street the first CD album. And then the guardian said. Says the first album recorded specifically with the CD medium in mind was dire. Straits brothers in arms in nineteen eighty-five. So it may well be that all of these are true to some extent that Abba. And the symphony were pressed to CD that fifty second street was it debuted. And then one of the formats debuted on was the CD and that brothers in arms came out specifically four CDs and was engineered for that purpose. Maybe that's what it all means. All I can tell you is that history tends to be complicated. And there are a lot of stories out there that at least on first glance seemed to contradict each other. Well, nineteen Ninety-three the music industry. Racked up sixteen point seven million dollars in CD sales. That's a lot of cash but vinyl albums were bringing in one point nine billion dollars that same year. So nearly two billion compared to CDs at sixteen point seven. Cassette tapes were not that far behind vinyl in nineteen eighty three and the following year and eighty four cassette sales surpassed, vinyl and kept going strong and CDs were laying the foundation for future success. So this is what kind of set the tone at least in the United States for vinyl to go on the decline. Cassettes to rule the eighties and for CDs to be well positioned to take over after that Sony, even tried to get a jump on portable CD players in the very very early days of the technology back in nineteen seventy nine Sony had released the walkman, they portable cassette player that was a popular accessory in the nineteen eighties. Just watch any comedy from the nineteen eighties or set in the nineteen eighties. And you'll likely see one, you know, like back.

"A pop in really better like that band before you plop. Down the cash for their latest album. I found a review for the C D P one a one player online which revealed some other interesting tidbits, for example, the prototype model that Sony had shown off earlier played discs vertically with the playing surface parallel to the front of the player, the CD P one one went with what would become the more traditional orientational for most CD players with a horizontal tray that would slide out to accept a CD before sliding back into the player. The review also went into how the CD would allow you to do things that you couldn't do with other types of recorded media and allows you to to skip to specific tracks or sometimes they called him bands on the CD not bands as in musical bands. But bands and bands of of recording so track one track to or band one Bantu made it really easy to select a specific passage or song on the CD. And it also. The review marvelled, and how you could quickly skim through a track, and you could hear a sped up version of the music as you were going through either fest sporting or rewinding, but while it was sped up. It didn't increase in pitch. You know, if you increase the the rotational speed of turntable than the pitch of the record increases as well. Something that lead to never ending hours of entertainment when I would put a thirty three rpm record on a turntable but switched the turntable to forty five rpm. So that everything sounded like it was sung by the chipmunks. You really haven't listened to pink Floyd's the wall until you've listened to the chipmunks sing pink Floyd's the wall. Anyway, that didn't happen with CDs because it was an digital format. It wasn't an analog signal. That was being sped up and with a pitch increasing. It was literally just skipping through the digital file. So you would get the sped up. Effect. But the pitch remained the same. Another option that the review mentioned was the option to play a track on repeat the parenting that merited special mentioned because it's again, something that you could not easily do on vinyl or cassette. You could do it. Like, if you listen to a particular track on vinyl after that track is finished playing you could get up walk over to the turntable, gently lift the stylus gently move it back to the beginning of that track drawback down and listen to it again. 'cause that's where worse because you had to push stop hit rewind push play. Find out where you are in the track. Maybe you've gone too far. Maybe haven't gone far enough adjust that way, see these made it so much easier. You can just hit a little button. And it would repeat the song. You liked as many times as you want it until you got tired of it, and you told to stop happens to be baby shark might just leave it on for weeks at a time for your child. Anyway, the CD player really started to get popular in Japan pretty quickly and Europe followed not too long after that it took longer to get traction in the United States and part of that was just logistical because the manufacturing facilities for the players. And for the CDs were all in Japan, and those facilities were already chugging away to meet domestic demand that left very little breathing room to produce units for the US market. And in fact in the beginning, there are only two manufacturing facilities in the entire world. There were making compact discs, and they were each owned by Philips and Sony, and that price was a really big barrier. To like a lot of people were willing to jump in. There was a limited number of of material out there for the players and they were really expensive. Meanwhile, cassettes and records were relatively cheap. It would take some time for the price to come down for CDs to start to gain on cassettes. But boy Howdy. When it happened. It happened. Big time the demand for compact discs in Japan, led to more investment in the industry and soon there were six manufacturing facilities and not long after that it grew to forty manufacturing plants that were churning out compact, discs, the technology was gaining momentum. And with the increased output came improvements in manufacturing with more efficient processes, which led to a steady decrease in manufacturing costs, which meant companies could sell their products for less money, while still maintaining a profitable business..

"You put the blink CDN or debut CD ROM in, and it would show up as a disc on your desktop, and you just drag stuff to to copy over to. That was read only or. You couldn't arrays from the. It was right once writing right reasoning worm. So yeah, that was the thing is basically once you talked to the CD there forever flowing amber what we wanted. That's what we used it for. So thank you done in for creating something that became, I think, probably much larger than than ever envisioned that it could become. It was a game changer for the way we process our information got our content. I just games, interactive stuff, phone directories. Remember the phone directories on CD-rom was awesome. So I kept mine for many, many years before I finally taught the postcode database east coast Rama. I'm here in the UK you'd subscribe to it and then every three weeks they send you a new CD-ROM with the update and you'd load that until system and that like used to do address such by postcode nowadays, we do that on the internet, but back then you would. Subscribe to a service to get that, and you had to be a business to be able to register for that because you know it was just slot these security information, amazing technology. I wouldn't mind revisiting again someday. Maybe looking at some of the forgotten CD roms that were hugely influential or popular in are largely forgotten. Now for many, many years I subscribed to much of Technet which was a technical service allowing you to preview and do local instals of all the software that Mike self sold for development purposes. So you pay them a few hundred pounds a year. And basically every I think every month they sent you these folders full of discs, CD ROM discs. And then I had this big conduct a binder that they, they gave you when you signed up that you kept them and see you would throw away old ones replaced with new ones who's a fun time wasn't an and yeah, I had this massive bind full of own c..

I finally got rid of it. I'm I got rid of another one that actually was for the games. We gaze, which kind of copied from the original discs yourself. So I put the original discs away and I would use the copays and course they go scratch something and not yet there was about two hundred and fifty goes in that none of which I played anymore run.

"If you were a Star Trek fan at all, you own the CD. ROM. It was awesome. Worked on both MAC and PC. You know, it covered all the TV shows next generation Voyager all the films up to ninety five. But it was this encyclopedia of all the Star Trek goodness, you couldn't help, but be a fan of Star Trek. If you pop this in started exploring and there was hundreds of hours worth of content created for this. It almost felt like the ultimate fan website, if you will. It was amazing and also had interfaced get kind of made you feel you on the enterprise using a console on the address. Yeah, it was. It made other beeps and boobs and it was such a good disc, but as good as that was, there was one CD ROM that outshined everything else and everybody had a copy even if they didn't play it. And that's mostly because this desk the CD ROM disc was abundant for men, manufacturers in their external CD ROM dry. Lives as well as a lot of computer makers, including apple would include this in the box, and it was a game that was based around pitchers. There was no moving video to speak of. Not really. There was a couple black and white fuzzy ones on purpose, but it was pitchers in you move through this game by clicking something in the next pitcher would come up and it was beautifully rendered. It was unlike anything you saw before it was called Myst and Myst was amazing ahead. This ambient sound and the whole thing is a giant puzzle for older listeners. I guarantee you had a copy a messed at one time or another, whether you played it or not was irrelevant this. This was a game changer. There was never. It wasn't almo- almost wasn't a game. It was an exploration and it was just looking at stuff and moving around and there's the switches and there was nobody guiding you. Okay. You gotta do this, but you would discover these puzzles and to to solve a puzzle. You had to do something else. And it was laid out logically, it wasn't one of these things that, hey, remember in the first level we saw that. I don't know a block that didn't seem to do anything while I hope you picked it up and kept it because that's going to be the thing that you have to use to win this game. No, it wasn't illogical like that. It made sense. Yeah. The thing thing about missed. It was a game that just wasn't possible before the CD wrong. It wasn't absolutely. You know, you couldn't do anything because it was displaying pre random pictures. Rather than that, she's in the graphics hardware in the in the computer. It looks. It looked so well, it lasts only for the future, yes, whose photo realistic. Look, if you go back and look at their original drawings, it looks like ads on your computer, and that's because we've got Hirose screens and, but you gotta remember what this was played on very what we would consider our lower resolution color screens, six forty by four eighty. If you were lucky six. Yeah. You know, maybe thirty two bit color. If you're lucky, it originally came out on the MacIntosh and it was originally created on hypercard. So the guys who created a random Robin Miller, they were fans of hypercard and they wanted to do something with this cool technology for those who don't know what hypercard is. We'll talk about that. The future will be Wikipedia entry for us. Our Wicky trolling entry for us, but it was mesmerizing iron. I just remember the sounds if someone turns this on and I can't see it and I just hear the sun. There was no, like musical score or anything. It's this ambient sound immediately say the clever thing about the thing about CD-rom wants because CD was also an audio format. You could have stereo sound kit that audience appropriate promptly rented audio tracks. All the CD as well, and then have the computer play those while it was displaying data.

You could see some audio clips or hear some audio clips. Video clips. There was movie history on it pitchers. It was like. Nothing. It was interactive. You can click things and things would have it was awesome. And it was stuff like that that expanded what you could do with your computer. The CD ROM was really one of the driving factors of making getting a home computer, a wise investment for a family yet because you had stuff like atom the inside story, remember that it was on every single shelf at every electronic store the dissect it, or you know the cutout skull get looking. I think it was doling Kinsley who did a whole load of very high quality interactive CD roms on various subjects. He human Baldi and space travel were coupled to take the remember. And the thing is well, is that what. Cdrom allowed people to do was before before that Kapito magazines had covered this and there were floppy. You're on. They had know they had a few programs. Everything was tiny when the CD ROM came out all of a sudden you could have full demos of new software that was demos of things a lot myself word and access and debates and things like that. The cut down versions of the whole piece of self west. You could try them out. They distributed whole copies of old operating systems. We'll CD-rom so you could try them our home. Remember this is pre internet. You could not fit most people. If you had a connectivity, had you had a fifty six k modem at best. You're just cook, don't download this stuff because it would take too long cost too much you would you'd be on the phone for two days and cost an with a two day coal. It was. It was just it was just not feasible, whereas the CD ROM allowed us to get this stuff. The the games that became very successful would distributors countdown trial versions. Try and encourage people to buy the Atra full game, and it goes a whole subset of people who who actually just never bought before game. They just play play today. The demolitions so forth, saying Romeo, some of the, some of the things that really kind of drove it, though it wasn't the promise of all the storage. It was the content. So while we applaud Dennen for creating the standard, a lot of different standards were created and never amounted to anything. This was different because as a society, we were already used to CD ROM. So this was something that was intimately familiar with us a. We had the storage capacity and you know, we understood this format. We, we have desks that we were already using. So we, we had the the sleeves at home. We have the shelves that were exactly the right size to hold the CD. Well, more importantly from distribution point, if you, you could tight y'all CD ROM image and have it pressed a commercial DSE depressing Plum. For pending being up to create CDs was the cost of creating for pre discs, which were versatile thing yet for software distribution of any kind, not just magazines, but if you have a program, you won't. So we're enormous. Whereas CD as you say, you could turn out in a very Cassini pressing is very quick. You could turn out a very large number of disks in a very short periods. Homage made a lot cheaper as well as the discs were physically bigger. So you could have a, you know, you can have all that dice roll, man. You could put what lots of extras on that you could put. I remember of software distributors would sell, sell you a program, but then there would be directly on the CD rom with trials of some of their other business. So you could try those get magazines CD roms that would have all these demos and QuickTime movies that you could watch interviews at the magazine did, and it was awesome. All of that is before as you mentioned the CD Risa was development of the sudden you start creating your own disks home. So to the big big things that I remember David. And I think you were have fun memories of both of these as well. And of course, we didn't know each other back in the nineties, but still number one, Star Trek. I'm not DEA. Yeah..

"We went from on a clear. Remember this. We went from the common data storage, medium of the floppy disk of one point full full megabytes, Susan, nothing, which is nothing that's less than the photo on your iphone nowadays. Yeah. And you had to have whole programs? I remember getting copies of myself office from from my Safina was working in the in the mid nineties. Yeah, and it will come in like fifty-six, floppy disks you have you have to load. Prevailing. Those floppy disks were bad, which had. Yeah, and so that's kind of where we were, and then the CD ROM came out on the back of the CD audio disc and the CD ROM with basically was the same technology, but just storing pure dice set of audio streams. Six hundred and fifty megabytes. Yeah, and then they squeeze a bit more avenue. I think it my thinking logically went up to roundabout six, eight thousand seven hundred defending of your February was where kind of maxed out. And at that point we got the DVD, but let's concentrate on the CD ROM format. It was invented by Dennen for those who don't remember. I think Dennis still around, but Dalian's. Really high end audio manufacturer of component stereo systems that I didn't always made really good stuff. I don't know if I ever actually owned a piece of equipment, but I always liked their stuff was always cool, cool looking and I was letting the Nightline so then insanitary coal. Yeah, it did. It's a good one. So they invented this technology and unveiled it in eighty four alongside Sony, and it really did for those who don't remember it. There was a craze from the mid eighties little bit beyond that because I don't. It didn't take off right away, but just caught the end of the eighties through, let's say, ninety eight ninety nine somewhere in there. Ninety eight because ninety nine is when the DVD really started hitting big. So for not quite a decade, but almost a decade. CD-rom was the preferred. Method of getting content for computer users, and I remember going into circuit cities and best buys and places like that. Little computer shops looking at external CD ROM drives and. There were shelves full of content. I'm not talking about just games. There were games, but more importantly, there was all of this content that we would consider. Well, that would make more sense as a webpage. You're absolutely right, but there was no websites and there were all these interactive things that you could buy and and few in. You could also back up your own data. I remember getting my first CD ROM. It was built into a MAC and I immediately copied every single floppy drive that I owned onto my hard drive and immediately burned all of them to a couple of CD roms. But even that they Bill the ability to create your own CD's came lace. I remember my first CD ROM drive. I remember this quite vividly at bolt. This PC from a column kind of competes affair. And you know it was. It wasn't brand new, but you know, it was pretty good for the day, and I played doom and stuff like that on did a bit work on it and everything, but it didn't have a CD ROM drive. And I remember going with my first wife at the time to another competes affair. And you know, we sold the internal CD-roms there and they would. They wouldn't cheat. No. She said she said, oh, you know, you should buy one. I clearly remember taking that thing. I'm how it I was and fitting into my computer, and then I had some CD-rom covetously come with a couple of magazines I've been put in and how different using the computer was. Then you had someone, you know, people really kind of built on the fullness you. You did have streaming video on these very quality commensurable we have now on these discs, you had remember much soft cancer, the encyclopedia program or. Absolutely. Yeah. Which was like Wikipedia on the disk. Yeah. And that also had video and photos and stuff like that. Of course, it was. It wasn't great compared to nowadays because it was great compared to what we had at the time which you even though say, compare to it was great. It was fantastic.

"That the internet goes away but if the internet goes away you're not going to have your electricity you're not gonna be a player cd's so you'll probably find throw your cd's good what do you do right you know i see that point and and i have a lot of people who ask me about buying a lot of time but you know i spent most of the eighties nineties replacing like meticulously replacing all my peas with cd's and it took me forever and it was incredibly boreas and expensive and i'm not going back man i mean i love records but i'm just not gonna go back and replace all my cd's again with records so it it streaming for me looking for the physical representation of it although it is important for many people and i agree with your point that it's great to keep records alive i love record stores but for me personally i'm not going back i feel you i mean i just i do hear people say oh i need to buy music i need the physical thing that's why like cd's and i just feel that makes more sense with vinyl or frankly with a t shirt so there is room for technical innovation but you know it does feel like this world is set streaming and maybe vinyl and the cd as a d win ruling category and certainly available in used form throughout the nation for the foreseeable future does that phil baron at does feel that right yet yeah i think that's true cd's are definitely dwindling vinyls definitely increasing and streaming is just overwhelming that's that's the way the future and real quickly i mean we we haven't touched his much on the fact that people aren't buying digital fouls which seems to make the least sense of all by a digital file when you can stream in unlimited number for ninety nine a month why would you buy one album for nine ninety nine on itunes unless it's you know unless it's like taylor swift or something where she hasn't put on streaming but short of that it doesn't really make much sense it seems like so yeah.

"You know when when cd sales were offended i was just looking at the figures for how many cd's were sold in nineteen ninety eight which was twenty years ago and it was five hundred seventy eight million compared to last year the us which which was eighty nine million but i mean back then that was the only model the record business head and all these executives and williams and everybody else just wanted to protect that that's all they wanted to do is sell cds everything was going so well suddenly you've had nassar pop up which was a pirate service it wasn't authorized and it allowed people to share files for free over the the you know the internet which was this new fancy thing that was confusing to a lot of people and fry from that moment when napster functional it created this world in which you could essentially think of the name of the song type the song and hear this song and the record industry's sort of mistake or whatever was thinking they could in any way forestall that future once we got a glimpse of that we were never going to go back right that's right that's right the record industry tried to stop it instead of saying i mean there were some efforts made to make a deal with napster and that's a whole complicated story we both reported on that in his fascinating and then it it could have happened they could have had a a world where they sort of made a deal with napster and we had legalized streaming in nineteen ninety eight imagine that that that could have happened they were talking about tethered download from nassar there's all sorts of things that could happen instead but so a few things happened before i tunes launched this ancient history now steve what people probably don't remember now is there is this period between roughly ninety nine and two what you're did i tunes launch two thousand three yes so during that period there was very little ability to legally get music he couldn't even legally by downloadable tracks really there was we'll go back to musicnet and press.
