I was lucky enough to have christian asked me to interview him for his book. Launch that we did online a few weeks ago christian. Good to have you on the show. Thanks so much for having me back. I think we determined that it was two thousand fourteen than i was last on. So yeah it's it's been a minute. Let's not make it so long for sure. We were just talking about the g mail through g mail interface phase. If you if you want hear live troubleshooting of tom and sarah trying to message each other over the new google chat Get good day. Internet become a member at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should the. Uk's competition and markets authority announced an official investigation into the mobile device ecosystem looking into the dominance of ios and android and the control that both have over at marketplace's results of the investigation are expected to be published within a year. The previously announced an investigation into whether apple unfair unfairly favored itself in the app store. The us supreme court has overruled a twenty nine. Nine hundred ninth. Us circuit court of appeals decision. That had barred lincoln from preventing heike labs from harvesting personal data from public profiles. If you're not following it. The decision was heike. Labs can harvest the details from lincoln and the supreme court said no. We're thrown out. That decision the appeals court had ruled that the computer fraud and abuse act did not apply when no authorization was needed to access public user data. In other words. It's just there on the web The ruling was sent back to the ninth circuit by the supreme court to reconsider in light of the supreme court's own june fourth ruling on the computer fraud and abuse act which did find that someone could not be found guilty under the law for misusing information on a system. They have permission to access so it could end up with the same decision. It just needs a different legal justification. One plus announced the nord en a two hundred five g for two hundred forty dollars going on sale in the us to t mobile and metro customers. June twenty-fifth it will also come to canada or three hundred twenty canadian dollars. The in twenty five g has a six point. Four nine inch. Hd ninety hurts. Display qualcomm snapdragon. Four eighty chipset. So this is a budget phone with four gigs of ram and sixty four gigs of expandable storage. The end two hundred has three three rear lenses with a thirteen megapixel main sensor sixteen megapixel front cam. Five thousand million battery is returnable using an eighteen. Watt fast charger in honor of zelda's thirty fifth birthday. Nintendo is launching another game and watch system. This is the legend of zelda game and watch system fifty bucks come in november twelfth. the The little portable game. That predated the gameboy is game and watch so this is a kind of a nostalgia play for that includes the original legend of zelda the adventure of link the gameboy version of link's awakening and vermin the link version plus a built in interactive digital clock and timer because hence the name Featuring link nintendo also announced the sequel to the legend of zelda. Breath of the wild will arrive next year. Two thousand twenty two i r. l. is eight new ish networks been around for two years has twelve million monthly users many of them under the age of eighteen a lot of college students as well focusing on group chats events polls and supposed to be about people doing eventual things together like meeting up in real life. Hence the name iro ceo. Abraham shafi tells the verge that the app builds facebook groups and events the generation. that doesn't use. Facebook also says that the goal is to become a super messaging social network like we chat for the rest of the world. Yes sir. And i tried it out. Sarah invited me to chat. I'll do it a lot. A lot of that today really really really wants your context like it asked me four times to access my contacts so something to be aware all right. Let's talk a little more about the new announcements at e three from razor. What are they got sarah. Well razor announced a new version of its blade fourteen gaming laptop and for the first time runs on. Amd not intel specifically and eight core overclock amd nine fifty nine hundred. H x cpu also comes with either a ten eighty p one hundred forty four hertz or fourteen forty p one hundred sixty five hurts display g rtx thirty sixty three seventy or thirty eight gpu and acclaimed at twelve hours of battery life shipping june fourteenth and starting at one thousand seven hundred ninety nine dollars razors calling it the smallest gaming laptop available at twelve point five nine by five point six six zero point six six years. That's pretty thin but that's not. All remember razors. Led filled n ninety five mask. Well finally it has a ship date. The hazel and ninety five as it's known will be released in limited quantities with the first batch scheduled for this october since the announcement they have also added an anti fog coating what they still haven't announced though as a price so it is coming in october. But we don't know for how much yep if after buying your new blade fourteen in hazel and ninety five mask you still have one hundred eighty dollars leftover will you're in luck because you can buy razor's new one hundred. Thirty watt gallium. Nitrite charger small enough to fit into a pocket when plugged in can charge to usb c devices at one hundred watts and two usb a devices at eighteen watts all at the same time. International adapters are included in the box. And it should be available sometime in the next thirty days man. One hundred eighty bucks. You'd expect them to include more in the box. It's pretty pricy for that kind of thing. Which isn't a brand new kind of thing. But it is really small and the plugs collapsible. So maybe you're paying for the design christian of these three products which catches your attention most. Well here's what i want for sure. The laptop i. I love these laptops. I i love what they make. And i'm super curious about these rising processors. I've not used one yet. Let this project hazel. I think is super interesting. Because it's interesting to kind of launch this now right I mean so. I wonder what they're calculus either betting. That masks are permanent. Part of life now where they're like betting on another pandemic or something or both. Well i mean. I was thinking the same thing christian and i guess you know when you're talking about airplane travel and you know i don't know there are certain places where it's like sure we're not going to just masks are going to go away and does something like this very cool hazel and ninety five masks become some sort of a status symbol like a handbag. Were up until now a lot of us are just like whatever mask i've got you know. Nearest me is fine grade and you have a few of maybe it becomes a kind of like special mask that sets you apart from the crowd gonna guess that the led filled n ninety five masks that if you have to ask how much it is. Maybe he can't afford it because they have given us a price yet is it necessarily marketed as a practical item like this is this is for people to buy because they just want to have it they they got people excited about it and now you know it's not like mass like you said it's not like master totally gone. They're still used in a few places. And so you can justify saying. Oh i'm going to get the mast because you just want it because it looks pretty. You know a perfect mass aware of the club i would. I would imagine if one day. Go to clubs which i don't but you know you're my. Your mileage may vary. Yeah i'm with you on the laptop being the thing that is catching. My and few people aren't chat room wwltv's got his one among them saying like. Amd really does seem to be getting the advantage here Showing up in more and more products. Well folks have you ever been included in a tweet and all its replies. You had nothing to do with and did not care to keep see. I've had this happen to me where i'll say something. And someone else says something either saucy or critical in response and then someone else takes exception to their response. Then those do people start fighting in my replies. And i have nothing to do with it. Because they're fighting with each other. Not what the thing. I originally posted. I'm like can. I please unsubscribe but there's no way to do that. Well you can mute the tweet thread in some apps but short of blocking the users which seems a little extreme in that case usually just have to wait for it to fizzle out and sometimes like zombies tweets like this reemerge twitter product designer dominant camotes see has shared an early concept of something that might help with this unmentioned feature. That would let you unlinked yourself from a tweet and then prevent it from being used in future replies so not only remove yourself from the threat but stop them from reacting you to it if they decided they wanted to which for abusive scenarios could be pretty important. The mockups show that you can edit your mentions in the privacy and safety settings if you change your mind later she could add yourself back in also if someone you don't follow at replies you you could prevent them from mentioning you ever again. You could just not block somebody but block them from at replying. You from tagging you. Another proposal would let you restrict certain accounts for mentioning meeting you at all and even pause all mentions of you for a period of time. They they suggest one three or seven days might be the time you're like i want to block them from ever mentioning but i don't wanna hear from him for three days. Boom there you go. None of these features are real. They're all still in the design stage. They just want feedback from people. That's why they're putting this out there into the world. They may or may not come to the platform. But sarah do these to come to the platform. Yes i do and e- yeah. It's it's kind of like the scenario that you describe tom where you know i don't know let's say yes someone who i don't know tweet something. I don't see the tweet but someone else replies to that tweet and maybe says something like. Oh yeah. i remember when sarah and reviewed something like that on a show like a million years ago and then it turns into this whole thread. Where i'm like well. The one tweet was fine. You but now there's sort of a conversation that has nothing to do with me and i'm not contributing at all and i just like to quietly leave quietly. So i think that the unmentioned features specifically as great because yeah blocking is walking is appropriate. In certain situations muting is appropriate in certain situations But an unmentioned features specifically something that might be part of an event just. So you're you're an you're getting unmentioned or you're you're you're keeping yourself from being mentioned For a set period of time does does come in handy. You know all of this stuff. You know it's granular tweaks that. I know a lot of people who use twitter. Don't use or care about. But i think they're really important for power users and people who really want to customize the experience as much as possible. Okay we can't edit tweets ever but this is still a step in the right direction. It's sort of editing. You can edit yourself out. I think when you're you're like listen. These are just people that i don't necessarily want to block from being ever seen again but i just don't want to hear this anymore. That seems useful to me. Also the ability to restrict anyone from mentioning. You is not something. I would see myself necessarily having to use ever. There are people who get trolled. Who get you know massively. and they. They couldn't possibly go block and mute all the accounts that are at replying them so that would be a just say like. Hey just eliminated all stop. Stop them all from showing up in my mentions christian. I you know the the social media game is fraught with peril for anyone who ventures into it. What do you make of any of this. I just only edit button. No i i've been. I'm in favor of anything that gives people more control over how often they're getting notifications often. Dr getting pinged. One of the reasons. Why i'm not super active on social media is because it's i love interacting with people online. But you know. I need to eliminate distraction so any kind of features get more granular control over how to reduce the noise. I'm all for. I think there are probably some downsides in in the record of the tweet so the way this is working these mockups is the out replays disappear and you don't know that they were in there to begin with. I would rather see them. Just gray right. So they're no longer click abol they no longer show up in the at replies But but if i stumble across tweet i can see like oh. They did at reply that person but it's no longer links so that person must have removed themselves and blocking them from further mentioned. Sure i think that's that's fine but i. I do wonder about just having a clear record of what happened. Maybe maybe that would be a tweak. I would make otherwise. I'm not seeing too many downsides to this now yeah and especially when it comes to the abuse stuff or just i know. Let's say you're you're a journalist who's written something that has sparked day spirited debate good and bad you know that sort of thing where it's like you know my thing is out there and i don't need any death threats about this i i can see where this would be extremely helpful tool so you kind of don't get into wastewater of the social. You want to participate for awhile and then eventually want to opt out. This gives you that option. Yeah yeah also. Another option narrows expanding its partnership with fedex to use narrows driverless pods for last mile deliveries at large scale narrow has been conducting tests for about five years now with grocery stores pharmacies. Even pizza places. Neuro started a pilot program in april with fedex using its current neuro to pods and tuesday. It announced a multi year partnership to deliver fedex packages in the next generation of neuro pods in multiple markets. Neuro has an exemption from the us department of transportation to operate on public roads. Meaning it can. Where others can't and california granted it permission to charge for services and parts of santa clara and san mateo counties but x is still developing its own autonomous sidewalk. Robots called rock so and collaboration with dean. Caymans deka company que. The project aims to deliver from retailers like hardware stores drug stores and restaurants to nearby residents is one of the vantage is of the neuro system would be that you can know or even schedule when exactly you have your package delivered extremely helpful and can also have robots come and pick up a package that you want to ship. Ups has also testing an autonomous delivery trucks system. So your first experience with an autonomous car might actually be getting one of those packages that you're so used to a human a truck delivering you. Yeah over the many years since. Chris has last on the show. Neuro has has risen from being one of the first to even test driverless car. If you if you haven't seen the neuro cars there are like short little mini buses. There's no space for a person in them so they don't have a steering wheel they don't have a break they are really just oversized sidewalk robots. They're big enough to be on a regular road but they're not huge and they go at a slower speed so they just go along. You know your residential streets and they've been testing them over and over. I think they tested the zona with kroger. They tested him with. Cvs it tested him with kroger in houston and in april when they started testing with fedex. I thought okay that's interesting. They're getting into logistic. So this is the first time that we've seen them have an agreement that says we're going to we plan any way to use them everywhere And one of the things fed ex is saying is places where it's actually more difficult to get to So you know your driver has fifteen houses on route and then there's one package that's like ten miles out in the country. You could send a neuro pot out there to deliver that one and not have to send that one truck all the way out there and back. I think the thing that appeals to me. most sarah's what you were saying about being able to schedule it to know that for sure this pod can bring me my package at this time. When i'm home you'd be able to check it on a map you'd be able to get notifications Be able to you know you have to run out. Maybe reschedule it. I think the this technologies fantastic because a lot of the technology is really about Gathering training data Which you can then leverage for For other kinds of autonomous transportation. Right so you know the more we can you know. Things like prescriptions pizzas being delivered. Where the you know if it's weight or if there's an accident or something goes wrong. The are relatively low. The better rate um and then you know that training data can can potentially be used for higher stakes. Things like eventually moving people around i do. I'm starting to think that having a package delivered to you by some kind of rolling robot. That doesn't have a person inside. Might be most people's first interaction with an autonomous vehicle of some sort marina In our twitch jet was like what's gonna keep trolls from tipping. These things over there fairly big. I'm not saying it would be impossible but you might need a couple of people to tipped over there. We're not talking about the little star. Labs sidewalk drones or walk. robots also. Don't think that's going to happen as much as people think it will happen. I'm sure it will. They will defend themselves. Weapons folks make sure that you don't miss the show next week. All next week is accessibility week. Each day we're going to feature a guest that will talk about technology. Accessibility from testing products to developing. You is It'll be the normal show news wise but we'll have a special segment from each guest talking about how important technology is to accessibility and how important accessibility is the technology. It all starts next week. Starting monday june twenty first. What does it take to end. Cyber attacks and cyber reason we can tell you exactly what it takes. It takes an army of battle-tested defenders on a mission defenders who fight the foes that operate under the cover of digital darkness defenders who think move and adapt faster than cyber attackers defenders with technology and effortless automation to spot an attack forming on computers mobile devices servers and the cloud and alert you. When it matters most to end cyber attacks it takes the brightest minds in global cyber intelligence working to deliver future ready protection to guard your data wherever the fight moves cyber reasons ready to win the battle with you and for you in the fight to end cyber attacks. we are the defenders. Join us to reverse the adversary advantage with proactive protection against ever evolving threats cyber reason and cyber attacks for men points everywhere learn more at cyber reason dot com o. We've talked about digital art. We've talked about kings of leon albums and even yen cat. All being sold as t a non fungible token entities are permanently marking someone as the owner of something without restricting its digital distribution the most recent example is the worldwide web itself. Tim burners lee just announced that from june twenty third until june thirtieth so th bs will conduct an auction of an nf t of the original source code for the world wide web. That's about ten thousand lines of code or so. Bidding starts at one thousand dollars and proceeds will go to support causes supported by burners lee and his wife so mostly charities but the source code of the web is open. Anybody can have it it. You can go download it right now. It's been open for a long time. So it's tempting to talk once again about. Why would anyone pay to be called the owner of something. That's infinitely copy -able but christian suggested we take a more interesting approach to tease time. Right now. people get a kick out of being able to say on the owner of nen cat or the web. But maybe that's just the thing that makes it popular. Once that novelty wears off christian. What else do you think. Nfc's are going to be good for. I think nfl aren't extremely compelling alternative to two things like limiting distribution of content through you know purely legal means security by security things like you to trying to prevent you from downloading videos and of course the big one is Technologies like the arm right so so one of the biggest Criticisms which. You just mentioned tom that i see a benefit. Teases this sort of like the screenshot argument called right which is like wide screenshot. Screenshot the new the new or theft things like that. But i actually think that that's their greatest strength right. So entities in my view work with the The infinitely coppell nature of digital content right whereas whereas i would argue that. Dram fights against it. So i love the fact that allow you to verifiably own something. would also potentially at the same time Short the world. If you choose to write in. It's no accident that someone like. Tim burners lee is is looking at nfc's for a way to get to get something out there right. That's not you know. He's sort of famously. Did not patent a lot of technology That he's not giving away so this is you know you can kind of see where. There's some overlap there I recognize that. That's the t. Mobile is not going to work for for everybody for all kinds of creative digital contact but i think ten provide some creators in some some content consumers with a really compelling alternative to i consider to be sort of work brute force concept the our own and we'll have a full explanation of. Nafta already up if you want to at our sister show no a little more dot com but for the purposes of this conversation. How how can t you work instead of. Because i get what you're saying. Drm tries to fight against infinitely copy by locking things up as often as not punishes the legitimate user as it does the pirate. How how can tease work for content. Authenticity yeah i think that i left. T is create sort of a new kind of content distribution radar is Aviram tries to turn digital content into sort of a physical good where there's only one of them rate But that's we all know that doesn't help digital content works so i don't think there's a one one correlation necessarily between physical and that's kind of what's exciting about it in my mind so what you can do with another fifty is you can meant it. I'd you can sell it on one could buy you can trade it You know all of those kinds of things But you can also choose a license around potentially and by the way. This is a little bit forward looking right. I mean there are still so many pieces that need to be the need to be put in place and in particular dimensions licensing licensing as something that that is still a somewhat opaque and fairly murky so these things need to be worked out but in theory you could create something. You could create a traffic credit comic. You could take you know if you're a photographer. He got there in create photos. And i think that a lot of us a lot of content creators could be a book write. It could be could be anything We really wanna share these things with the world but we also want some sort of monetization strategy. We want to support what we do at the same time And i think that he's created new way to do that because there's nothing about the nf t that makes something so that can't be copyright and. That's the thing that again. As i said before people can criticise. I think that's a strength because what you can do is You can you can give work to the world. people can enjoy it people. Can you know use your name or user. Whatever it is for a background or they can share. They can get value and enjoyment out of it but people can also by the deeds to it right in some in some sense right they can. They can invest in the ownership of it. And i feel like for some things not everything but for some things that it can really give us the best of both worlds one one of the things we've experienced daily tech news show is there are people who listen to the feed with ads but still support us on patriotic because they want to feel like they have an interest in the show. They want to express their support of the show. I could see people feeling like. Hey yes This e book is free. And i don't have to pay for it but i want to pay for the nfc. In fact i want to pay for the nfc of the book. So i can prove that. I supported the artists. There's the you know the bragging rights is not as silly in that respect. Where you're saying. Hey i'm not just showing that. I'm some kind of owner because this isn't the only nfc of this e book. I'm showing that. I supported my. You know my author. And i think for a lot of fan base is like you say it doesn't work for everything but a lot of fan bases. That's the kind of thing they wanna be able to show. It's a badge of honor. It's like a membership card if you will for sure I have Vinyl album on a record player rate. A and i do that the to support the artists. Right i have a taiko album right right over there on. Actually because i i loved i love what does And i want to support it. So i think that you know there's an. I want to emphasize that. There's so much that still missing from this right there is there's a content authenticity problem. You know when you look at something. High profile like people like grimes or like timber in roughly. You know you see up to go to a southern at christie's or something and you do that because you're sort of You know that's that's kind of a proxy for for for guaranteeing the authenticity of So so the million problems to solve their million technological problems the issues with marketplace's their issues to sleep with the carbon footprint of the crypto currencies. That back these things up we we can go through the whole list But what did what i like to do is whenever i see sort of the new party. I'm like this like to ask myself this question of. Can i imagine a future without this technology rate so once you kind of get a taste of it new and you see it. You know whether that something might. Ar vr where you know some something like that know. They're all kinds of problems with these technologies early on. You know a are you know causes Sort of the are headaches and ambushes tests and stuff like that but when you sort of see these things and you can you can The important thing is not to sort of a numerate. The problems with them in my mind. the important thing is to really figure out what they can enable what the strengths are in the entrepreneurs can come in and people can come in and start fixing a lot of those problems. That's where i see on a piece. I think there's tremendous opportunity nfc. I think we're still a long ways from getting there But the there's a there's a new kind of ownership that this creates that That allows people to share in digital creativity without being locked down without being. You know onerous on. Have you know bragging. Rights have ownership end investment. Still and. There's nothing wrong with speculative assets. Here there's nothing wrong with saying you know i'm gonna. I'm going to pick up some early versions of this. You know big fan. Maybe i'm investor. Maybe you know. Sort of like an investor right. Maybe i'm going to sell this stuff later on that. Nothing wrong with that either. I think it's too early to say all the things that it could be used for. But what i try to do with nfc. Because it's easy to take potshots at it. It's easy to poke holes in what won't work with it. But would i try to look at is but what benefits from proof of ownership. yeah it's not gonna stop you from copying something no. It's not going to stop somebody from taking a screenshot but that's not really what it's good for. It's good for proving you paid for this right. And what are the other things they can do if you got ideas. If you're like wait. That gives me an idea feedback. Daily news show dot com. That's what it is Well you might think that smart bulbs are pretty smart but the site next act posted pretty smart little project it was an kia trod free smart. Led bulb has bulbs a lot of companies do and it was running doom. The game had to be modified to run on the light. Bulbs one hundred eight kilobytes of ram. That's what was with an actual display in game. Buttons added to the bulbs. Mgm to ten l. f board however. Don't get too excited. The post was subsequently removed with next posting. It had a request to remove this post and all public material. I wonder who requested that. It wasn't can thank of can't think of oh kia but it's just hacking the bold come on i. This is on it. That's amazing. No that i don't know that for a fact we shouldn't. We shouldn't throw a kia under. It's very tiny bus yet. But if you've done anything like this we do wanna hear we really do.

Internet become a member at patriotair dot com slash s. Let's start with a few things you should the. Uk's competition and markets authority announced an official investigation into the mobile device ecosystem looking into the dominance of ios and android and the control that both have over at marketplace's results of the investigation are expected to be published within a year. The previously announced an investigation into whether apple unfair unfairly favored itself in the app store. The us supreme court has overruled a twenty nine. Nine hundred ninth. Us circuit court of appeals decision. That had barred lincoln from preventing heike labs from harvesting personal data from public profiles. If you're not following it. The decision was heike. Labs can harvest the details from lincoln and the supreme court said no. We're thrown out. That decision the appeals court had ruled that the computer fraud and abuse act did not apply when no authorization was needed to access public user data. In other words. It's just there on the web The ruling was sent back to the ninth circuit by the supreme court to reconsider in light of the supreme court's own june fourth ruling on the computer fraud and abuse act which did find that someone could not be found guilty under the law for misusing information on a system. They have permission to access so it could end up with the same decision. It just needs a different legal justification. One plus announced the nord en a two hundred five g for two hundred forty dollars going on sale in the us to t mobile and metro customers. June twenty-fifth it will also come to canada or three hundred twenty canadian dollars. The in twenty five g has a six point. Four nine inch. Hd ninety hurts. Display qualcomm snapdragon. Four eighty chipset. So this is a budget phone with four gigs of ram and sixty four gigs of expandable storage. The end two hundred has three three rear lenses with a thirteen megapixel main sensor sixteen megapixel front cam. Five thousand million battery is returnable using an eighteen. Watt fast charger in honor of zelda's thirty fifth birthday. Nintendo is launching another game and watch system. This is the legend of zelda game and watch system fifty bucks come in november twelfth. the The little portable game. That predated the gameboy is game and watch so this is a kind of a nostalgia play for that includes the original legend of zelda the adventure of link the gameboy version of link's awakening and vermin the link version plus a built in interactive digital clock and timer because hence the name featuring og link nintendo also announced the sequel to the legend of zelda. Breath of the wild will arrive next year. Two thousand twenty two. I r l. is eight new ish networks been around for two years has twelve million monthly users many of them under the age of eighteen a lot of college students as well focusing on group chats events polls and supposed to be about people doing eventual things together like meeting up in real life hence the name iro. Ceo abraham shafi tells the verge that the app builds facebook groups and events the generation. That doesn't use. Facebook also says that the goal is to become a super messaging social network like we chat for the rest of the world. Yes sir. And i tried it out. Sarah invited me to chat. I'll do it a lot. A lot of that today really really really wants your context like it asked me four times to access my contacts so something to be aware all right. Let's talk a little more about the new announcements at e three from razor. What are they got sarah. Well razor announced a new version of its blade fourteen gaming laptop and for the first time runs on. Amd not intel specifically and eight core overclock amd nine fifty nine hundred. H x cpu also comes with either a ten eighty p one hundred forty four hertz or fourteen forty p one hundred sixty five hurts display g rtx thirty sixty three seventy or thirty eight gpu and acclaimed at twelve hours of battery life shipping june fourteenth and starting at one thousand seven hundred ninety nine dollars razors calling it the smallest gaming laptop available at twelve point five nine by five point six six zero point six six inches. That's pretty thin but that's not. All remember razors. Led filled n ninety five mask. Well finally it has a ship date. The hazel and ninety five as it's known will be released in limited quantities with the first batch scheduled for this october since the announcement they have also added an anti fog coating what they still haven't announced though as a price so it is coming in october. But we don't know for how much yep if after buying your new blade fourteen in hazel and ninety five mask you still have one hundred eighty dollars leftover will you're in luck because you can buy razor's new one hundred. Thirty watt gallium. Nitrite charger small enough to fit into a pocket when plugged in can charge to usb c devices at one hundred watts and two usb a devices at eighteen watts all at the same time. International adapters are included in the box. And it should be available sometime in the next thirty days man. One hundred eighty bucks. You'd expect them to include more in the box. It's pretty pricy for that kind of thing. Which isn't a brand new kind of thing. But it is really small and the plugs collapsible. So maybe you're paying for the design christian of these three products which catches your attention most. Well here's what i want for sure. The laptop i. I love these laptops. I i love what they make. And i'm super curious about these rising processors. I've not used one yet. Let this project hazel. I think is super interesting. Because it's interesting to kind of launch this now right I mean so. I wonder what they're calculus either betting. That masks are permanent. Part of life now where they're like betting on another pandemic or something or both. Well i mean. I was thinking the same thing christian and i guess you know when you're talking about airplane travel and you know i don't know there are certain places where it's like sure we're not going to just masks are going to go away and does something like this very cool hazel and ninety five mask become some sort of a status symbol. Like a handbag. Were up until now. A lot of us are just like whatever mask i've got you know. Nearest me is fine grade and you have a few of maybe it becomes a kind of like special mask that sets you apart from the crowd gonna guess that the led filled n ninety five masks that if you have to ask how much it is. Maybe he can't afford it because they have given us a price yet is it necessarily marketed as a practical item like this is this is for people to buy because they just want to have it they they got people excited about it and now you know it's not like mass like you said it's not like master totally gone. They're still used in a few places. And so you can justify saying. Oh i'm going to get the mast because you just want it because it looks pretty. You know a perfect mass aware of the club i would. I would imagine if one day clubs which i don't but you know you're my. Your mileage may vary yeah. I'm with you on the laptop. Being the thing that is catching. My and few people aren't chat room wwltv's got his one among them saying like. Amd really does seem to be getting the advantage here Showing up in more and more products. Well folks have you ever been included in a tweet and all its replies. You had nothing to do with and did not care to keep see. I've had this happen to me where i'll say something. And someone else says something either saucy or critical in response and then someone else takes exception to their response. Then those do people start fighting in my replies. And i have nothing to do with it. Because they're fighting with each other. Not what the thing. I originally posted. I'm like can. I please unsubscribe but there's no way to do that. Well you can mute the tweet thread in some apps but short of blocking the users which seems a little extreme in that case usually just have to wait for it to fizzle out and sometimes like zombies tweets like this reemerge twitter product designer dominant camotes see has shared an early concept of something that might help with this unmentioned feature. That would let you unlinked yourself from a tweet and then prevent it from being used in future replies so not only remove yourself from the threat but stop them from reacting you to it if they decided they wanted to which for abusive scenarios could be pretty important. The mockups show that you can edit your mentions in the privacy and safety settings if you change your mind later she could add yourself back in also if someone you don't follow at replies you you could prevent them from mentioning you ever again. You could just not block somebody but block them from at replying. You from tagging you. Another proposal would let you restrict certain accounts for mentioning meeting you at all and even pause all mentions of you for a period of time. They they suggest one three or seven days might be the time you're like i want to block them from ever mentioning but i don't wanna hear from him for three days. Boom there you go. None of these features are real. They're all still in the design stage. They just want feedback from people. That's why they're putting this out there into the world. They may or may not come to the platform. But sarah do these to come to the platform. Yes i do and e- yeah. It's it's kind of like the scenario that you describe tom where you know i don't know let's say yes someone who i don't know tweet something. I don't see the tweet but someone else replies to that tweet and maybe says something like. Oh yeah. i remember when sarah and reviewed something like that on a show like a million years ago and then it turns into this whole thread. Where i'm like well. The one tweet was fine. You but now there's sort of a conversation that has nothing to do with me and i'm not contributing at all and i just like to quietly leave quietly. So i think that the unmentioned features specifically as great because yeah blocking is walking here is appropriate in certain situations. Muting is appropriate in certain situations But an unmentioned features specifically something that might be part of an event just. So you're you're an you're getting unmentioned or you're you're keeping yourself from being mentioned For a set period of time does does come in handy. You know all of this stuff. You know it's granular tweaks that. I know a lot of people who use twitter. Don't use or care about. But i think they're really important for power users and people who really want to customize the experience as much as possible. Okay we can't edit tweets ever but this is still a step in the right direction. It's sort of editing. You can edit yourself out. I think when you're you're like listen. These are just people that i don't necessarily want to block from being ever seen again but i just don't want to hear this anymore. That seems useful to me. Also the ability to restrict anyone from mentioning. You is not something. I would see myself necessarily having to use ever but there are people who get trolled. Who get you know massively and they. They couldn't possibly go block and mute all the accounts that are at replying them so that would be a just say like. Hey just eliminated all stop. Stop them all from showing up in my mentions christian. I you know the the social media game is fraught with peril for anyone who ventures into it. What do you make of any of this. I just only edit button. No i i've been. I'm in favor of anything that gives people more control over how often they're getting notifications often. Dr getting pinged. One of the reasons why. I'm not super active on social media. Because it's i love interacting with people online. But you know i. I need to eliminate distraction so any kind of features get more granular control over how to reduce the noise. I'm all for. I think there are probably some downsides in in the record of the tweet so the way this is working these mockups is the out replays disappear and you don't know that they were in there to begin with. I would rather see them. Just gray right. So they're no longer click abol they no longer show up in the at replies But but if i stumble across tweet i can see like oh. They did at reply that person but it's no longer links so that person must have removed themselves and blocking them from further mentioned. Sure i think that's that's fine but i. I do wonder about just having a clear record of what happened. Maybe maybe that would be a tweak. I would make otherwise. I'm not seeing too many downsides to this now yeah and especially when it comes to the abuse stuff or just i know. Let's say you're you're a journalist who's written something that has sparked day spirited debate good and bad you know that sort of thing where it's like you know my thing is out there and i don't need any death threats about this i i can see where this would be extremely helpful tool so you kind of don't get into wastewater of the social. You want to participate for awhile and then eventually want to opt out. This gives you that option. Yeah yeah also. Another option narrows expanding its partnership with fedex to use narrows driverless pods for last mile deliveries at large scale narrow has been conducting tests for about five years now with grocery stores pharmacies. Even pizza places. Neuro started a pilot program in april with fedex using its current neuro to pods and tuesday. It announced a multi year partnership to deliver fedex packages in the next generation of neuro pods in multiple markets. Neuro has an exemption from the us department of transportation to operate on public roads. Meaning it can. Where others can't and california granted it permission to charge for services and parts of santa clara and san mateo counties but x is still developing its own autonomous sidewalk. Robots called rock so and collaboration with dean. Caymans deka company que. The project aims to deliver from retailers like hardware stores drug stores and restaurants to nearby residents is one of the vantage is of the neuro system would be that you can know or even schedule when exactly you have your package delivered extremely helpful and can also have robots come and pick up a package that you want to ship. Ups is also testing an autonomous delivery trucks system. So your first experience with an autonomous car might actually be getting one of those packages that you're so used to a human a truck delivering you. Yeah over the many years since. Chris has last on the show. Neuro has has risen from being one of the first to even test driverless car. If you if you haven't seen the neuro cars there are like short little mini buses. There's no space for a person in them so they don't have a steering wheel they don't have a break they are really just oversized sidewalk robots. They're big enough to be on a regular road but they're not huge and they go at a slower speed so they just go along. You know your residential streets and they've been testing them over and over. They tested the zona with kroger. They tested him with cvs. It tested him with kroger in houston and in april when they started testing with fedex. I thought okay that's interesting. They're getting into logistic. So this is the first time that we've seen them have an agreement that says we're going to we plan any way to use them everywhere And one of the things fed ex is saying is places where it's actually more difficult to get to So you know your driver has fifteen houses on route and then there's one package that's like ten miles out in the country. You could send a neuro pot out there to deliver that one and not have to send that one truck all the way out there and back. I think the thing that appeals to me. most sarah's what you were saying about being able to schedule it to know that for sure this pod can bring me my package at this time. When i'm home you'd be able to check it on a map you'd be able to get notifications Be able to you know you have to run out. Maybe reschedule it. I think the This technologies fantastic because a lot of the technology is really about Gathering training data Which you can then leverage for For other kinds of autonomous transportation. Right so you know the more we can you know. Things like prescriptions pizzas being delivered. Where the you know if it's weight or if there's an accident or something goes wrong. The are relatively low. The better rate um and then you know that training data can can potentially be used for higher stakes. Things like eventually moving people around i do. I'm starting to think that having a package delivered to you by some kind of rolling robot. That doesn't have a person inside. Might be most people's first interaction with an autonomous vehicle of some sort marina In our twitch jet was like what's gonna keep trolls from tipping. These things over there fairly big. I'm not saying it would be impossible but you might need a couple of people to tipped over there. We're not talking about the little star. Labs sidewalk drones or or sidewalk. robots also. Don't think that's going to happen as much as people think it will happen. I'm sure it will. They will defend themselves freight. I mean weapons folks. Make sure that you don't miss the show next week. All next week is accessibility week. Each day we're going to feature a guest that will talk about technology. Accessibility from testing products to developing. You is It'll be the normal show news wise but we'll have a special segment from each guest talking about how important technology is to accessibility and how important accessibility is the technology. It all starts next week. Starting monday june twenty first. What does it take to end. Cyber attacks and cyber reason we can tell you exactly what it takes. It takes an army of battle-tested defenders on a mission defenders who fight the foes that operate under the cover of digital darkness defenders who think move and adapt faster than cyber attackers defenders with technology and effortless automation to spot an attack forming on computers mobile devices servers and the cloud and alert you. When it matters most to end cyber attacks it takes the brightest minds in global cyber intelligence working to deliver future ready protection to guard your data wherever the fight moves cyber reasons ready to win the battle with you and for you in the fight to end cyber attacks. we are the defenders. Join us to reverse the adversary advantage with proactive protection against ever evolving threats. Cyber reason end cyber attacks for men points everywhere learn more at cyberrays dot com o. We've talked about digital art. We've talked about kings of leon albums and even yen cat. All being sold as t a non fungible token well entities are permanently marking someone as the owner of something without restricting its digital distribution the most recent example is the worldwide web itself. Tim burners lee just announced that from june twenty third until june thirtieth so th b's conduct an auction of an nf t of the original source code for the world wide web. That's about ten thousand lines of code or so. Bidding starts at one thousand dollars and proceeds will go to support causes supported by burners lee and his wife so mostly charities but the source code of the web is open. Anybody can have it it. You can go download it right now. It's been open for a long time. So it's tempting to talk once again about. Why would anyone pay to be called the owner of something. That's infinitely copy -able but christian suggested we take a more interesting approach to tease time. Right now. people get a kick out of being able to say on the owner of nen cat or the web. But maybe that's just the thing that makes it popular. Once that novelty wears off christian. What else do you think. Nfc's are going to be good for. I think nfl aren't extremely compelling alternative to two things like limiting distribution of content through you know purely legal means security by security things like you to trying to prevent you from downloading videos and of course the big one is Technologies like the arm right so so one of the biggest Criticisms which. You just mentioned tom that i see a benefit teases this sort of like the screenshot argument call right which is like wide screenshot. Screenshot the new the new or theft things like that. But i actually think that that's their greatest strength right. So entities in my view work with the The infinitely coppell nature of digital content right whereas whereas i would argue that. Dram fights against it. So i love the fact that allow you to verifiably own something. would also potentially at the same time Short the world. If you choose to write in. It's no accident that someone like. Tim burners lee is is looking at nfc's for a way to get to get something out there right. That's not you know. He's sort of famously. Did not patent a lot of technology That he's not giving away so this is you know you can kind of see where. There's some overlap there I recognize that. That's the t. Mobile is not going to work for for everybody in for all kinds of creative digital contact but i think ten provide some creators in some some content consumers with a really compelling alternative to i consider to be sort of work brute force concepts and we'll have a full explanation of. Nafta already up if you want at our sister show no a little more dot com but for the purposes of this conversation. How how can t you work instead of. Because i get what you're saying. Drm tries to fight against infinitely copy by locking things up as often as not punishes the legitimate user as it does the pirate how how tease work for content authenticity. Yeah i think that. I f t is create sort of a new kind of content distribution radar is Aviram tries to turn digital content into sort of a physical good where there's only one of them rate But that's we all know that doesn't help digital content works so i don't think there's a one one correlation necessarily between a physical entities and. That's kind of what's exciting about it in my mind. So what you can do with another fifty is you can meant it. I'd you can sell it on one could buy you can trade it You know all of those kinds of things But you can also choose a license around potentially and by the way. This is a little bit forward looking right. I mean there are still so many pieces that need to be the need to be put in place and in particular dimensions licensing licensing as something that that is still a somewhat opaque and fairly murky so these things need to be worked out but in theory you could create something. You could create a traffic credit comic. You could take you know if you're a photographer. He got there in create photos. And i think that a lot of us. A lot of content creators. It could be a book write. It could be could be anything We really wanna share these things with the world but we also want some sort of monetization strategy. We want to support what we do at the same time And i think that he's created new way to do that because there's nothing about the nf t that makes something so that can't be copyright and. That's the thing that again. As i said before people can criticise. I think that's a strength because what you can do is You can you can give work to the world. people can enjoy it people. Can you know use your name or user. Whatever it is for a background or they can share. They can get value and enjoyment out of it but people can also by the deeds to it right in some in some sense right they can. They can invest in the ownership of it. And i feel like for some things not everything but for some things that it can really give us the best of both worlds one one of the things we've experienced daily tech news show is there are people who listen to the feed with ads but still support us on patriotic because they want to feel like they have an interest in the show. They want to express their support of the show. I could see people feeling like. Hey yes This e book is free. And i don't have to pay for it but i want to pay for the nfc. In fact i want to pay for the nfc of the book. So i can prove that. I supported the artists. There's the you know the bragging rights is not as silly in that respect. Where you're saying. Hey i'm not just showing that. I'm some kind of owner because this isn't the only nfc of this e book. I'm showing that. I supported my. You know my author. And i think for a lot of fan base is like you say it doesn't work for everything but a lot of fan bases. That's the kind of thing they wanna be able to show. It's a badge of honor. It's like a membership card if you will. Yeah for sure I have Vinyl album on a record player rate. And i and i do that the to support the artists right. I have a taiko album right right over there. Well actually. Because i i loved i love what does And i want to support it. So i think that you know there's an. I want to emphasize that. There's so much that still missing from this right there is. There's a content authenticity problem. You know when you look at something. High profile like Grimes or like timber. in roughly. You know you see up to go to a southern at christie's or something and you do that because you're sort of You know that's that's kind of a proxy for for for guaranteeing the authenticity of So so the million problems to solve their million technological problems sir. The issues with marketplace's their issues to sleep with the carbon footprint of the crypto currencies. That back these things up. I mean we we can go through the whole list But what did what i like to do is whenever i see sort of the new party. I'm like this like to ask myself this question of. Can i imagine a future without this technology rate so once you kind of get a taste of it new and you see it. You know whether that something might. Ar vr where you know some something like that know. They're all kinds of problems with these technologies early on. You know a are you. It causes Sort of the are headaches and ambushes tests and stuff like that but when you sort of see these things and you can you can The important thing is not to sort of a numerate. The problems with them in my mind. the important thing is to really figure out what they can enable what the strengths are in entrepreneurs can come in and people can come in and start fixing a lot of those problems. That's where i see on a piece. I think there's tremendous opportunity nfc. I think we're still a long ways from getting there But the there's a there's a new kind of ownership that this creates that That allows people to share in digital creativity without being locked down without being. You know onerous on. Have you know bragging. Rights have ownership end investment. Still and. There's nothing wrong with speculative assets. Here there's nothing wrong with saying you know i'm gonna. I'm going to pick up some early versions of this and you know big fan. Maybe i'm investor. Maybe you know. Sort of like an investor right. Maybe i'm going to sell this stuff later on that. Nothing wrong with that either. I think it's too early to say all the things that it could be used for. But what i try to do with nfc. Because it's easy to take potshots at it. It's easy to poke holes in what won't work with it. But would i try to look at is but what benefits from proof of ownership. yeah it's not gonna stop you from copying something no. It's not going to stop somebody from taking a screenshot but that's not really what it's good for. It's good for proving you paid for this right. And what are the other things they can do if you got ideas. If you're like wait. That gives me an idea feedback. Daily news show dot com. Know what it is Well you might think that smart bulbs are pretty smart but the site next act posted pretty smart little project it was an eye trod free smart. Led bulb a kid has bulbs a lot of companies do and it was running doom. The game had to be modified to run on the light. Bulbs one hundred eight kilobytes of ram. Yeah what it was with. An actual display in game buttons added to the bulbs. Mgm to ten. L. r f board. However don't get too excited. The post was subsequently removed with next posting. It had a request to remove this post and all public material. I wonder who requested that. It wasn't can thank of can't think of oh kia but it's just hacking the bold come on i kia. This is it. that's amazing. No that i don't know that for a fact we shouldn't. We shouldn't throw a kia under. It's very tiny bus yet.

Google updated messages on android two now use end to end encryption on all one on one r cs chats previously available in beta. The company also announced that the android earthquake kit system or alert system rather will come to turkey the philippines. 'cause don the kirghiz republic tajikistan turkmenistan. And who's becca stan. Research from mcafee's advanced threat. Research team shows that peleton bike plus and peleton tread exercise equipment containing a vulnerability that would let attackers gain remote control access to the peleton touchscreen that could allow things like malware that intercepts traffic accessing of your personal data even controlling the bike placer dread camera and microphone remotely or recording your workout own. None of those are terrible. But they're probably thinks you don't want mcafee team notes. An attacker would need access to the machines at some point in the supply chain and then have to insert a usb key with a boot image file containing malicious code. That would grant them remote root access and pelivan has issued a patch in the latest version of its firmware. Yesterday we talked about razors gallium nitrate charger for one hundred. Eighty dollars and mentioned that there were similar and also cheaper products one of which is made by wrath power. But if you're looking to compare these products do not go to amazon to do so.

Google will be opening. Its first retail store at seventy six ninth avenue new york city. This is on thursday at ten. Am so tomorrow. It's on the first floor of the building. This is the building. Google bought from the chelsea neighborhood for its new york headquarters or in that neighborhood. You'll be able to buy google hardware like pixels nests and fitbit's don't forget. They just bought them as well as get accessories. Not made by. Google like phone cases headphones. That sort of stuff. If you're into google branded merchandise they have t shirts. Hats dog toys in the like in the store will offer tech support for google products and everything from help troubleshooting to repairing a cracked screen For more involved repairs. You can schedule. Drop off and pick up though. Google wants to do as many repair same day as possible And google will take advantage of your visit to show off. Technology like google translate and nightside photos and various spaces and kiosks within the store One of them's dedicated to stadia. So you know you haven't given up on that yet. You check that out and just like apple. There will be instructional events in the store as well. Yeah this the they've done pop up stores before but this is their first permanent location and it reminds me especially that stuff about the kiosks in the go into this dark room to nightside photos and see how amazing it is That reminds me of the experience. Store is there. there's a few of them out there. I went to a samsung location in tokyo. That was not a store they they would help you buy their products online but it was simply five stories of demonstrations of samsung stuff so they had an instagram room where you can take photos with the they made you take a samsung phone with you through it so you could try out a say you know the galaxy phones. You're walking around. They're all kinds of other things. So it looks like google is like we're actually going to sell stuff in the store but we're also going to provide these kinds of experiences and we're going to do a little the apple genius bar stuff and the and the instructional. So it's it's a mix of all of those ideas in one. I wouldn't be surprised if they never open another one. This may be just a tourist attraction of way. Hey when you're in new york. If you're a big fan of the google products by that google store you can get all this cool stuff. I feel like i would go. At least just out of curiosity if i were in the newark neighborhood at some point in the future but yeah i there are plenty of people who are like yeah. Google makes hardware products. Everyone knows that but a lot of people don't or at least they don't think of google as oh that might be the company that i think i decided to buy next. You know flagship smartphone. Kind of thing and sure maybe you go in there because you need some repair stuff on your pixel and while you're there you say oh you know i was wondering about this whole you know nightside thing or you know. My cousin has stadium. Maybe i'll you know while. I'm waiting to pick up. Something i'll i'll i'll give this a whirl. All of that is doesn't really. It's a win win situation for google. You have potential customers learning about stuff that you want to sell them and yeah it's it's a they're there for for google thing. I think they've kind of got. It's like microsoft's stores a little bit. Their companies known for mostly services and software and so people automatically think. I wanna go play with some hardware at a software company but providing this. They're in such a cool location May end up being just a great flagship place for people to go when they're in new york Whether or not they plan on rolling this out like a regular chain i think has got tons of questions attached to it not only as like kind of the retail world's changed a little bit and we don't quite know where it's headed next That's a whole issue. But you know they haven't said so my guess is they're going to make this one store super rod go in there and hang out and i hope it goes well. Formed seems cool. I also feel like because it's part of the sprawling and already existing google campus. Not that they're going to be like secret. Google employees in their writing. Down your every move but it's a great place to kind of have their where you're like. Oh and then real people off the street or in there so you can get a little bit of a sense of what might be gaining traction or what people you know gravity or have questions about early. Yeah no. I was thinking i was thinking. They would use this as a as a bit of data to decide whether they ever went open another permanent location or not. But you're right. It's not even just that it's also like how people use phones and what what catches their eye. They're gonna they're gonna get all kinds of out of that. You're that's so true so true Speaking of a company trying to use your data to make a new product apple has been pushing into health technology as have amazon and google last week at. Www may remember apple announced the ability. Coming in iowa fifteen to send data from your health app to your doctors medical record systems and in fact tuesday mayoclinic announced. It will now support apple's health records feature which is the existing thing where you can connect your health app to the records. It doesn't involve the sending until you get fifteen yet. That's all expanding and apple's getting a lot of credit for for plowing ahead in the technology space for health but apparently apple has loftier ambitions than just hooking your records up with your doctor. The wall street journal has sources and documents that say starting in two thousand sixteen apple began developing a way to offer primary care. The plan was to develop a subscription based personalized health program using data from devices like your apple watch combined with virtual and in person primary care visits. This is big business. There's there's a lot of companies doing this kind of thing like carbon health but none of them make the devices and apple does apple created the service for its employees as test with the idea of eventually franchise out to health system. So apple didn't want to run it but they wanted to create the platform that they could then give to actual health systems to use so apple took over some health clinics near its headquarters and in two thousand seventeen hired. Stanford's dr symbol. Say to run the effort which they code-named casper but it hasn't been terribly popular. It's one thing to dog. Food food a new iphone and use it out in the world. It's another thing to put your health in. The experimental product uptake from employees appears to be spotty not just for the clinics but also of test apps and app called health habit from dr as team was launched six months ago to encourage healthy habits like exercise diet. But half the people who downloaded it internally didn't enroll and engagement among those who did enroll has been low. of course that could just mean test. Product isn't working and that that's why you test products to find out whether they work worker. Not apple of course responded quite a lot to this report sometimes specifically two things. The wall street journal Posted but in general said that some of the assertions in the report are either. Incomplete outdated or just inaccurate information but in their responses they did sort of tacitly admit yeah. We're we're developing health technology products. Like this i mean. We're headed this direction. So someone's gotta be fiddling around in the space. I'm sure they're not the only ones but the more The more we are all tethered up to something that the more our healthcare and our shopping habits and are anything else will be tied to this stuff to your phone to your device to your records and having those records with you all the time and you know being able to get to those records quickly. Either whether it's your doctor or you or an employer or whatever. I think it's going to become some tip. Toland toward that obviously is like they say. The uptake hasn't been great here although apple. Maybe asserts that this isn't complete information. All of that aside I'm on board man. I'm all for this idea of. I walk into an office and they go. Oh here's your stuff okay. Cool looks like we're all good here. Let's do a quick blood test right. That's been added to your stuff. I don't gotta wait for a phone call. I don't have to try to call in and get boy smell like that whole process could be so much easier and therefore ultimately i think cheaper for everybody although the health care system doesn't seem to care about that so much sometimes but i would love to just see that process be more efficient amal in. Yeah i definitely saw some hotcakes around the internet of like well you know employees at apple does seem to be very excited about this and that may be true on some level depends on the employee. But it's more of if i was an employee and there was this product were like. Hey we're building this thing. We're going to test it internally. Please give you information. It's not well you might be like. Now i'm totally not down with that This also wasn't mandatory. But you also might be like well. I mean it's task they might be scrutinizing the data a little bit more than normal and already have healthcare. And that's kinda working for me. I like my doctor. I don't. I don't really wanna participate. This sounds messy. I mean it. It's it's sort of a lot to ask to be a guinea pig out a company like apple that i'm going to presume has pretty good healthcare benefits already you know for for regular employees to To be giving a lot of data because yes the company is is working on back end software that works with the devices that the company makes also. It's a lot of control. The how yeah. It's one thing to be able to swap your sim card into the test. I phone and try it out and then swap it back. It's another thing to switch your doctor right like i could see if you've got like you said i think that's a good point if you've got really good healthcare from apple. You might be like you know. I'm just gonna keep going to the doctor. I know i'm not gonna try out this clinic whereas and some of them will and some of them. It's not as easy of of an ask. I think But you're right. This is coming and you can all of you outside of the united states you can go ahead make your you know making fun of our healthcare system here if you want but i think it's not just the united states that could improve medical records sharing and access and making it really easy and simple to see all of your medical records all of your test results all of your your past appointments and medical history and everything in one place. I mean that that that is not done as well anywhere as it could be And so i am not against technology companies coming in and trying to create a safe and secure emphasis on safe and secure way for your doctor to be able to see all the medical information that you want them to see in order to help you improve your health. It's good it's good stuff. We're collecting more data than ever before. Now i have something. That's olmo i mean. It's it's sort of on the cusp. Have kaiser permanente aids healthcare plan provider. And for the first time you know as an adult. I can log in and there's so much more information in in my you know in the general. I don't know whatever you call it. The portal when you log in. That's all arranged. I mean it could be arranged a little bit. Better rate could be sort of a better app going on. But but yeah. This is a great direction for us to go in but yes ways to go yet while speaking of whether or not it has a ways to go or perhaps you like it as it is the tom. Warren reports that the entire windows eleven interface has leaked online. After first appearing on by do and this is a head of microsoft's announcement on june twenty-fourth warren got a hold of a working version of windows with the new interface which calls itself windows eleven. It uses rounded corners has centered icons in the task bar and a redesigned start. Menu looks a lot like what had been planned for windows ten x. You might remember that was originally meant for dual screens later for chromebook like devices and then just kind of got retired overall. The new start menu is simplified from windows ten has pinned apps recent files and shutdown restart options if you don't like the idea of a centered start menu could move it back to the left so you have some customization there. There's also a task bar. I con for widgets which appeared becoming back. You'll be able to have things like whether calendar were news. Slide out from the side for quick access stuff that you need. In general throughout the day snap controls available from the maximize button to let you quickly put windows side by side. You can arrange them in sections as well and if a new app store design is coming. It wasn't leaked in the version that warren got although there is a new startup. Sound so it might it might yet be updated before june twenty-fourth startup. By the way. Do you like it or not. Let me hear that again tomlin. Oh i don't know it's fine. It's fine you know the reason. I don't like it is because it sounds like notification because stop bothering guess won't repeat like i just did and you'll know i'm starting my associate with yes. I'm beginning the thing that i want to do right now. I don't know. I gotta say i am. I don't want to say him. Underwhelmed with how it looks. Because i find nothing wrong although i don't like the centered start menu. I don't like senator aligned anything but again you can you. Can you can switch back microsoft to be like we made what we're pretty sure is going to be a highly popular choice so we gave you the option to set it back yourself later. Yeah so underwhelmed. Maybe isn't the right word but i thought it was going to be a more dramatic updates and it still could be. I mean we could see something totally different but it doesn't assign the signs aren't pointing to anything that st- dramatically different than windows ten x what. I'm seeing here is that they took windows ten acts which never released right we. We only looks familiar with seen all the leaks and they said you know what it doesn't make sense to have a separate product that causes produce microsoft finally learn by that causes problems. Let's just take what we learned there. Put it in windows. Eleven and then under the hood. We can adapt the os to whether it's on like an arm processor. Something else but just make windows looked like itself now. I expected them to do that. And just call it windows. Ten said windows ten the last windows. You'll ever need whenever wherever doing another one. So i'm very curious what the story is to explain why this one is windows eleven. There's a little like eight percent chance in my brain that windows. Eleven windows ten. We'll continue side by side for a while. The windows eleven won't be exactly like windows ten. I think it's more likely that you it's just. Hey if if you're on the update cycle your next update will be called windows. Eleven because this one goes to eleven or or some other spinal tap jokes like that. Yeah i'm There there's a whole bunch of questions. I have about this this version of windows. Most of you i Based but for the most part. I'm excited to see the change. You know what. I'm talking earlier in the show. Prep about how. I'm nervous. Always about updates particularly windows ones and i think microsoft earned themselves a huge credit. If there's just goes smoothly. So i for one. I'm really hoping for just a smooth nicely done You know Roll out of this thing so that we all can just pleasantly move onto the next version of windows awesome smoothie nicely done all next week will be accessibility week on daily tech news.

Cyber reason end cyber for men points everywhere learn more at cyber reason dot com the headlines about microsoft coming out of the three gaming conference or all about xbox game. pass if you're unfamiliar. Here's the rundown on xbox game pass This isn't new but this is how it work. Subscribers get access to one hundred or more games that they can download and play microsoft promises that games from xbox game studios come out on game box game pass the same day. They release and at three. The following games were announced this coming to gain pass day of release and this is what was grabbing a lot of the headlines. Psycho nuts to back for blood. Forza horizon five halo infinite star field. Which you know. It'll be twenty twenty two but when it it'll come to game pass same day it's released and stalker to haiti's and among us are also coming to game. Pass not dave release scores but they are coming. It cost you ten dollars a month to access game pass on your xbox one hundred twenty bucks a year that's less than two top quality games. A separate plan costs ten dollars a month if you want access it on your windows. Pc instead that plan also includes a play which gives you the whole ea library of games. However that plan doesn't work on your xbox if you wanted on both your xbox and on your windows you gotta pay fifteen dollars a month. That's still cheaper than two or three games that also includes xbox live gold for multiplayer and xbox cloud gaming which lets you play games that stream to your android phone or tablet but you can still use your xbox controller and that will eventually include more than just android. Xbox cloud gaming is invite only beta right now for your windows browser and your s browser as a browser based web microsoft also plans to bring cloud gaming smart tv's and streaming sticks as well as the xbox one you'll be able to play new titles that wouldn't run on the xbox one through cloud gaming on xbox one so he sat out eat three as i mentioned earlier so it's unfair to compare but microsoft certainly dominated the headlines and the path towards subscription cloud based gaming scott seems clear. Yeah no question about that in my mind in terms of the future It's just a matter of who's going to get on board. I and who will have the dominant hand and all that kinda got you know touch on that a little bit in your in your info here but it was clear to me last week covering all e-3 stuff we did live coverage of everything By far and away the one event that looks like it really had a handle on things was the microsoft event and that is not always drew of microsoft in the past and the last couple of years have felt like sort of rebuilding years or years that they're building up to what they're finally starting to talk about now or show or actually deliver on now. Which is the massive value proposition. That is game pass. And it's very hard to deny that value proposition. They are basically saying for a very low fee a month as low as ten bucks if your consul only or pc only or if you want both an extra five in your and you got everything ultimate you have cross saves you have cross play. You have games That will play on the cloud as well and these traditional ways and you have their version of the hardware to say. Look we've got the x. S they both serve different reasons or different kinds of clients. But here they are. We have great consoles. play their. He'd rather play on your pc fine and got you covered there and we're doing date on those as well and you're somebody who just wants to play our games but play it on steam while we're selling it there too it's also on the epoch store it's also it's dot. Io and guess what you can get it on gog dot com like. They seem to be saying. I think very clearly their interest is this game a service and being able to play it anywhere to the point that they're saying even if i mean. This is all behind the scenes stuff. But they've said in some interviews. Look if nintendo or even sony or others were willing to let us bring game pass to their platforms. We do it Like they really want to do this. And i think because they're so out in front of it. It's going to be hard to compete with that for a while. I think sonia some catching up to do now. Even though the last generation it was the other way around and I don't know if somebody's ain't got anything up their sleeve but because they didn't present during this crucial week of exposure Being take a couple of things away from that one you could just say well. Sony gonna do what they do. They'll have their own thing to say. Don't worry it's coming Or you could say. They put their head down and kind of ignored this because they don't have a good answer for this yet. And i bet it's kinda mix of the two if i were to be asked but overall though the big take is not only mike do really well for this e three. They really pounded home. The case the game pass is going to bring what they promised and buying all these developers and acquiring bethesda and all of that stuff is starting to yield results actual games actual release dates actual expectation on the part of the player. And that's a big big deal. Microsoft pulled net flicks netflix developed streaming at a time when everybody's like who wants streaming. Dvd's man you have solid solid dvd's and then now everyone thinks netflix's a streamer even though they actually still have the dvd's microsoft is doing that right now. They're saying like yes. Consoles of course consoles are important but they won't always eventually device independent gaming will be the future and we are already. They're bringing you along slowly by letting you download it now instead of streaming it streaming hasn't quite there yet but it will be an eventually you'll you'll be getting your games from us through a service and we really won't care what device you play it on. We'll have a premium devices console. Go from being a loss leader to like just being like. Here's the best way to play your xbox games but you can play them anywhere on anything through cloud gaming at. That's where i think it's going. Yeah i think you're absolutely right. We'll see how things go. It's gonna get interesting real quick. All right tell us about what's going on with this. Vr headset scott. All right we'll check this out If you're into the quest this may be interesting to you in a blog post about the v. thirty update version thirty update. That is for the vr. Headsets facebook ceo mark zuckerberg Said play space will be expanded. Fifteen meters by fifteen meters. And we'll also be adding Multitasking to oculus home. Which access sort of virtual monitor Solicited interesting technical advancements like a brick also mentioned that the ability to wirelessly stream content from using the airlinks system is coming soon to the original quest. That's good news for people like me but it's unclear if that will be part of this version or not But that some people been begging for so that'll be great for streamers anyway microsoft also announced. It started testing. i'm fat. What else. But i say microsoft. They do that. Got it on facebook. I have no idea i did that. they also announced they will be starting testing of advertisements. In oculus quest. Headsets don't hang up yet. Everybody after previously announcing it in may okay so they have already talked about this they that and now they're gonna do it. They're going to run ads. In the oculus mobile app ads. I appear in the shooter game blasting from resolution excuse me restitution games though resolution games right ahead that and facebook says ads will come to two other oculus apps over the coming weeks so they didn't say what those two apps were so advertising in your oculus quest. Sarah you own one of these. I own right as for having ads in your face. So so just tight clarification in may the company said. You're we're gonna run some ads in the mobile app and at the time. I was like oculus mobile app. How often do i open that. Not very often. don't care. Do i care if ads run. You know in my head itself. Which i used pretty much seven days a week for something or other. Yes i do mind. I i might very much. I do not play blast on although it sounds like it is going to be the first of of many apps that will eventually see ads like other apps that i pay for in various other app stores. I would assume perhaps incorrectly. But i would assume that something like supernatural which i pay annual subscription for would be exempt from something like this test. I don't know i. I will get very upset very quickly if something like that is something that i can't somehow of even monetarily but yeah it's getting a lot of attention because people were like oh so close to your face. Everyone knew this would happen eventually. This is facebook. this is where all their money comes from and yeah. I can't say i'm surprised i don't like it but i can't say i'm surprised. Yeah i do this tv company. That relies on. Ads would put ads in the other products that they put out. You know like same with facebook. Facebook relies on ads. What did you see ads in the absence. not surprising. you don't get those apps. I actually think the absence may be better than putting it in the interface where you couldn't ignore them but expect that at some point to. I wouldn't be very well. Maybe whether the backlash would be as hard in the vr world as it was in some gaming circles and other stuff. Ads started to appear in premium products. Time will tell but. I'm not excited for backlash gaming. Yeah it'll happen. Yeah probably will have probably happening now just as we said those words. It's already happening well. Oh let's check out the mail bag. Oh let's do it on yesterday's show with our guest christian cantrell. We were all wondering how. Well razors hazel. Led and ninety five mask was going to sell especially given the timing of mandatory mask requirements. Easing in general. Certainly in some places more than others. Mike wrote in and said. I'm only an occasional user of mass transit. Make lives in the bay area and says i'm not sure when if ever all be comfortable again writing on barred or muny without a mask. I would certainly see the value of wearing wondering flu season. Especially if i was a daily commuter. I suspect public transit. Transit will eventually drop the mask requirement. But it will be fascinating to see. What the percentage of voluntary mask wears will be a year from now. The certainly some risk that the mask market will completely disappear with the end of the pandemic. But i've seen much more foolish business bets succeed. You're right. mike may be more than just out of the club there. We will find out how many people decide to just keep wearing masks for whatever reason just because they feel more comfortable or they're they're like the rest of the world trying to stop themselves from infecting someone else which is very polite and i think that would be a great reason to wear a mask whether they need to spend money on a raise early delayed and whether or not. I'm still a little skeptical but these are very good points. Thanks mike yeah well you know. Fashion doesn't always make sense but it does. It does hope you express your individuality if you have the guts on mask wearing fashion or anything that we talk about on the show or anything that we may talk about under feature. Show that you'd like to hear about facebook. Daily news show dot com is where to send all of your deepest. Well i was gonna say darkest thoughts. I guess you could send those any thought. We'll do we like to shut up. Patrons that our master and grandmaster levels including paul boyer. Brad and kevin today. We also like to extend a very special. Thanks to mark gibson. America's one of our top lifetime supporters for dtn. So thank you for all your years of support mark. We appreciate you. We also appreciate us.

These group chats are not the same however as rooms you may find that some of your older chats were set up as rooms in hangouts and rooms will reappear if you switch to this showing up separately but don't get too used to that because rooms will soon be called spaces this. With a number of new features like better message threading emoji reactions user roles moderation tools and basically things that make it more like slack than like texting. So that'll be the difference between chat which is more messaging interface even though you can do groups and spaces which is right now called still called rooms which will be more of a slack like space with workspaces. Smart canvas you i. You'll be able to move from an email to a real time. Google chat space within the same window. That's why it's all integrated together. It's where you'll be able to do. Things like collaborate on google sheet or dock while chatting about it all in one tab That's all coming with the launch of spaces expected sometime this summer. All very google. If you're having a hard time following it but basically right now you can change your settings you'll get email chats and rooms and eventually rooms have become spaces and eventually spaces will become something that is actually sort of interesting other news involving this includes a google workspace individual plan for nine ninety nine a month that gives you access to advanced workspace services without having to set up a dedicated domain So if you want some of the advanced features that you get as a business but you don't wanna go through all the things to be a business guilt to have that option eventually and the launch of progressive web app for workspaces coming in september as well as client side encryption for enterprise customers so a lot of a lot of announcements here. But i don't know about y'all jen sarah but for me it's the idea of workspace is being like oh turning g mail into a more collaborative space bringing docs in bringing chad in and making it useful. That sounds on paper anyway. Like like something. I'd be interested in. Yeah a lot of google naming convention stuff. I roll my eyes out. Just because google does this all the time. Although you know. I feel like hangouts too casual right. You know we. This is a suite of productivity tools for work so so it. It seems like they're going in the right direction. Yes making something like a room called a space but essentially acting the same minimal but sure moving in the right direction how to be able to have a better kind of cross google products interoperability for example. If we get a mail bag. And i wanna ask Jen and tom. Roger about it real quickly. And i know that they're hanging out in a spreadsheet that is connected to the show anything that makes all that a little bit easier and keeps me within you know the google world Make sense to me and is obviously what they're going for tom. I haven't embarrassing confession to make until your explanation right there. I not keep straight all of the different. Google like works based off and hangouts and chancellor lawrence. I don't know there are different versions of that. I don't think you're alone in that now. It was like a really nice fast. Know a little more now. Ready for it fine. Hey yeah this is definitely four people who do this for a living like unless. We're all switching to workspace. I can't see myself switching just yet i'm gonna let other people work out the bugs on this. Yeah and this. I don't know what the mobile aspect of this is. If there is anything right now you can do meet an email on the mobile app I assume that it would be chat coming over there yet. But i didn't see anything about that. I only saw the desktop But yeah i. I like this idea of having useful to it. Seems like maybe we are finally seeing the huge battleship that is google productivity tool shifting. I it's been better on the enterprise for a while but but the consumer facing version finally turning into something that does a little more streamlined. At a little more usable water we can laugh and make fun. And i think rightly so like well hangouts now been renamed chat and you know and it used to be g talk and before that it was something else. i think. they've finally decided. We're getting rid of hangouts and not gonna call it anymore. It's chat email and meet and who knows maybe this time actually stick with that instead of introducing something else you never know all right and bytedance launched an enterprise product called volcano engine. Last thursday volcano. Engine will let companies use the same recommendation. Algorithm tiktok uses offering data analysis and other services the algorithm also powers talks chinese version johann as well as news aggregated twitch. How chinese companies. Jd dot com. Vivo china construction. Bank and julie have all been trialing volcano engine over the past year. Yeah this kind of got lost in the wash last year but it resurfaced in a couple of places today and i think it's worth talking about the day after the us rescinded the executive order against which one of the reactions to that might have been them licensing out there engine to oracle To operate They they come up with this plan. So rich dr. Lino put together a lineup. Today produced produced things for us suggested that this this may have been an idea that bytedance got while going through that process of like well if we don't have to like if we're not forced to license out maybe there there's an amazon web services equivalent for us. Here maybe maybe we could take this algorithm and instead of having to hand over the source code we could license out. Its operation as a web service to people. And i think that's really smart really smart especially since you know. Tiktok it you know. It's the hot new thing in many ways for social network those like me who hang up on tiktok enough to be like god. It's why does it no me why is my for you. Page the way that it is yet mostly accurate. Knows that like yeah there. Is that kind of special sauce going on with algorithm. When i i was thinking about the stray i was like i wonder if tiktok thinks the special sauce days of the algorithm are numbered and so the company bytedance might as well make a little money licensing the special sauce out to other companies. Because it'll get replicated eventually anyway but but yeah. I think it's i think it's inevitable that they're going to be companies that want to pay for this and it's good revenue stream and they're yeah there's probably some political element to it too that the company had been batting something like this around and was ready to go now. I see this as a huge thing for tiktok. Not just for your. Here's another revenue source. But they're gonna know what everyone else is doing with the algorithm. And how is that going to feedback in tiktok or any future offerings. They have. That's a very good point. This this could improve the algorithm and and to that point. Avoid sarah what may be motivating it like ou our algorithm. You know people are catching up. Let's license it out and then that will improve it so we actually stay ahead The the that could contend well one of the hottest last pandemic era. We've been in has been the benefits and drawbacks of remote work and how hybrid work. Maybe the best of the to at least for some workers in some bosses with anecdotal evidence abounding. We're only starting to see more. Rigorous studies being published about the impacts of our collective change in working habits. Michael gibbs frederick mangle and christoph seem roth at the university of chicago released a working paper describing their study of remote work of ten thousand employees of an asian. It services company between april twenty nineteen that's pre pandemic and august twenty twenty few months under the pandemic now working papers haven't been peer reviewed. They haven't been published in a journal. They're working papers so how you will the But the scientists use the company's sapiens analytic software. Which is installed on employees computers to monitor app and mouse and keyboard usage to determine how the employees were spending their time working every day and the percentage of completed tasks relative to assigned tasks. So what did you get assigned. What did you complete. The data covered april twenty nineteen through august twenty twenty like i said overall employees worked thirty percent more hours compared to pre pandemic times including eighteen percent. Were work outside of normal working hours so they were working longer. Roughly one point nine hours more per day with employees with children. Working on average this saw the employees maintain roughly the same overall productivity output but productivity per hour dropped twenty percents. And you might say well why what you know. What's going on there too many meetings. Three searchers broke down employee time. By collaboration hours aka meetings and focus hours finding that work from home created substantial and ongoing coordination costs group meetings generally increase while one on one time decreased. These collaboration hours also increased as work from home continued with the number of microsoft teams calls per week. Averaging fifteen in the fourth week of the work from home. Study up to over thirty by week. Twenty four so people as time went kept saying well. We need another meeting. You know we got. We got a check in with each other a little bit more often. We're all remote. The researchers also noted the findings are significant given this type of organization often predicted. This is the type of organization often predicted to be successful when you shift to a work from home kind of situation all right. So the the caveat here before before we start parsing our reactions. Is this as you mentioned. Sarah is a working paper right. So there's not peer review on this but let's say these are these are reputable researchers. They've done other work before. Let's say it makes it through peer review and gets published. This is also one study of one organization. These are valuable data points. But you have to be careful not to conclude like and therefore now we know work from home is not productive There's a lot of questions raised by this. Which is how science works. So what i'm looking at this and seeing is there are interesting questions to address which is what if you don't count meetings as work right. The reason they had mouse and movements was to note when you were engaged with an app versus when you know you're just sitting back and reading. It helped to identify when work was actually being done. And i found it interesting. That more work was actually being done in the same amount of hours than you would when you were at work because the theory was. Oh you're going to goof off more if nobody can see u turns out no and the reason for that might have been meetings. Well what have we. Don't count meetings as work. What if we separately count up. Then what kind of productivity stat do we see. 'cause my guess is the meetings did suck up more time because you didn't have that personal connection and so you needed or at least some people felt like we need more meetings. Because i'm not seeing you in the office anymore which meant that. You actually probably got more productive or you might have. That's the question to study. You might have gotten more productive in the hours you weren't in a meeting because productivity stayed the same even though you had all these extra meetings and extra time worked like they mentioned what was that last line there in the fourth week of the work study the average Sorry from the twenty four and the study. The average calls for thirty. That's the average. That's a scary scary number of meetings where you are sitting there listening to else and you might feel like you're being babysat at that point which i think would definitely affect my productivity especially knowing that everything i do in. My computer is being monitored whereas in the office. I feel like a little bit more free from having that kind of constant surveillance even though you around everybody watching it feels more invasive when it's in your own home and that would definitely affect me mentally. Yeah and this goes. So i just wanted to say this is one company so their corporate culture involved this what might be different in a different company. Yeah i mean it. Depending on definitely who. I'm imagining a manager. Not even necessarily wanting to micromanage everybody and know where everybody is at all times. But being like well you know. We've got different schedules now. And you're not commuting and so maybe just just checking his better for everybody and the workers don't even necessarily disagree but hey you know if you're in a meeting you kinda stop what you're doing. Do the meeting catch everybody up else up on what you have been doing before you continue. What you're doing you know it's a. It's a start and stop enough times. Yeah your productivity is going to go down or you're you're my multitasking. And then people say you're not paying enough attention during the meeting. I always because we could see you your cameras on your looking out. Yeah i. I don't want to throw this report under the bus. I think this is valuable research. And and they're putting it out a working paper to get these kinds of feedback from other people in their own scientific community So they can refine it for publishing. But i do think that this is the kind of study that will raise more questions than it answers. Which is where. We're at the beginning of studying something new like this. You know. we haven't had this many people working from home at the scale before. That's what you're gonna get. You want this study. That will cause someone else to do like. Oh let me do another study to complement that. So keep an eye out for that genu.

And it's he three twenty. Twenty one event microsoft announced that flight simulator will come to the xbox series x on july twenty seventh microsoft promises. It's going to offer the same level of depth and complexity as the pc version. The game is also getting a one of a kind expansion tied to the release of top gun maverick. The movie More details on that to be released in november nearer to the release of the movie the game will be available as a purchase or through xbox game pass on release date. So have you have xbox game pass. you'll get access to the addition of titles. The xbox game pass a major theme for microsoft and he three The company announced thirty two other titles like bethesda star field halo infinite psycho nuts to forza horizon five dungeons and dragons dark alliance age of empires for all coming to the service on their release dates last week during its three business briefing. Im we mentioned this on the show. Microsoft announced that browser-based streaming will come out of beta for xbox game pass ultimate subscribers in the coming weeks with a quality upgrade to xbox series x hardware coming as well. The company has already said it's working on dedicated game streaming hardware. That's interesting also because it beats skittles in a twitter poll microsoft announced. It will release an xbox mini fridge shaped like an xbox series x console. That's coming in q. Four twenty twenty one. No price on that announced. Jed what do you make of microsoft's e three announcements. Well i. i should do a small disclaimer Sony is not at e three. Which is why. You're hearing a lot of microsoft. News and nintendo's treehouse is tomorrow so that is also why we're not talking about them so just to save me some ads later. That's why this is all microsoft I'll start with the mean fridge. I the fridge has a trailer. The fridge trailers really funny because it starts acting like this grand thing. And then it's a fridge that opens. I mean an as afraid should it should open. They did a whole size version of this right. And this is the promised mini fridge that everybody can buy. The big one was like a one off into contest thing and this one is like oh we can. We can make money. Let's let's put a skin on a fridge at it is getting some of the most attention out of this. What does that say about the rest of these announcements. It says that a lot of trailers are very vague and doesn't really matter for you. Yeah i'm i'm very curious and i know we talked about it on the show last thursday but i'm very curious about this idea of being able to stream everywhere and that i i think that was expanded on with the addition of these titles day and date releases of day it comes out as a title by comes to xbox game pass there. There's some impressive stuff here. Which is the beginning of the trend of microsoft. Trying to say yeah. The xbox is the premium way to game for us. But you can game with us in any way even on your tv. Yeah if you're playing drinking games while watching the conferences if you drink every time you said they said optimized for xbox you would not be here right now Yeah they have made it very clear. That game pass is the way to go. It's like four hundred ninety nine a month. Us it includes all of the games for pc and console and you get day one access to all of their first party new stuff which is a lot. 'cause they were hyping up everything it's coming over the next year you read the list of titles already. Eight is hard to say like yes like no no. No you should just buy games individually so that you have them forever when you're getting such a ridiculous deal and may end up playing more games that you can still buy a physical copy of later if you really wanted to but like mad The other huge huge part is this is the best way to get into gaming right now because it's all cloud and because you can't really buy your mileage may vary depending on region but because you can't really by the newer consoles because there's such a shortage and buying a new video card is like new car money fourteen ninety nine a month for a game that works things you already own is a pretty easy sell especially when that comes to my smart tv which i think it's gonna come to fewer smart. Tv's than maybe some people would like But you know when it does you can suddenly just get a controller. Right and suddenly. You're you're playing xbox games those those tv are gonna have to be to not have the lag but for a lot of people that that's going to be a plenty good experience. Yeah they keep hyping That's not microsoft specific but everyone who's making a cloud gaming offering to keep saying like. Oh yeah you can play on five g. And i'm thinking like where am i in the world that i need to play. Which three or something on the subway at the beach. Kind of be fun. Maybe well amazon is opening up access to its luna game streaming services well all prime subscribers in the. Us will start to get access. June twenty first and twenty second luna was previously limited to invite only and sign ups from supported. Fire tv devices So if you had wanted to try luna if you're in that that very Thin ven diagram of wanting to try luna but not wanting to sign up for an invite. Well june twenty-first. That's your day users will be able to start a seven-day trial and play library of games on pc mac and fire tv devices as well as browser based versions progressive web apps style on ipad and select android phones. This is not changing anything with the way luna works gen but it is opening it up to say okay. Anybody who's a prime subscriber jumped in and there's a lot of prime subscribers out there Amazon is pulling the goal option. Select if everybody stampedes it and it breaks like all. You guys are so amazing. Look at how much you want the stuff and then of course if it works they get to be where the first gaming service in history that didn't crash are huge first-day and we've talked about it before but but luna gives you you have to pay for it right even if you're a prime subscriber prime subscriber just get you you still have to pay for it and then you also can pay for other things. I think ubisoft is the only one. Now the ideas that you'll be able to pay for more games from developers. Yes they are. Launching was an extra fifteen bucks a month for the channel that will have all of their games and then they're launching with. I think almost one hundred of the others. this is betas. So that's why. I'm saying launching my only caveat with all of these streaming services. It's like it's the future clearly. That's the way it's going. The future is not here for everyone again. I can speak from the canadian perspective. Whereas where i used to live i kept on dsl. I can only get Three hundred gigabyte plan and that was still over one hundred dollars and ten. Adp streaming promoting. Our is like ten to twelve gigs. Like it's it's already hard. Enough to patch your. Ps four games depending on where you live in canada. So as much as. I think this has really awesome and really cool. It makes gaming more accessible to more people. Because all you need is a controller. It's not here for everyone. And i'm kind of worried that a lot of people are going to be left behind because building networks takes a long time. It's it's the netflix issue. I remember when netflix's i offered streaming back in the mid late two thousands. Everyone was saying the same thing which is how am i going to do this on my small data cap. How am i going to do this with my dsl connection They eventually figured it out. So that indicates some optimism that the same thing would happen for video game streaming because these companies have an interest in and getting the isp's to accommodate it but that's not a guarantee that my guess is they will but yeah it'll be bumpy and some people will be left out along the way well if you want to save money and who doesn't and you're taking a trip sometime soon and you identify as perhaps older than gen z. Your age might actually work in your favor and to tell us. More is the immature traveler. Himself this is. Chris christensen from the amateur traveler with another tech and travel minute.

I'm chris christensen from amateur traveller in. Shrugging is this because People like myself who are older than fifty. Don't have the energy to wreck your place so you just charge them last. All he wants is a little breakfast breakfast. The what appeals to me is being like oh i love to take advantage of this. You know i. I like the traditional b. and b. situation. I just don't want to run one so that not having to reciprocate them mike. Okay sounds good. Yeah or else took out the mellberg. Oh let's do it. So i mentioned this is in a po- show on gdi last week. My remarkable to e ink tablets had come in and jeremy heard me talk about it and this is going to be my my newest live with that device. Oh in three months. I'm going to tell you all how i feel about The remarkable to germany says. Good luck one thing. A lot of e ink people don't realize i think he means people who are new to ink inc don't realize is the touch sensitivity is not nearly as good as most tablets he also says the extension for does also work in the edge chromium browser. Because i was complaining that it looked like it was chrome extension only and is primarily fire fox. Jeremy says it's actually the main thing. I use my remarkable to four so That's a good tip. Jeremy i agree with you on the ink stuff. I've i've definitely because the remarkable to has this really neat pan and you can change the m the sensation it's very it's the sensation of. Do you want something that feels more like you're holding a calligraphy pen or a pencil or ballpoint or some something else. There several choices. There's a there's a real satisfaction in the writing sense but the tapping on things is is a different experience than a tablet for sure.

Merritt and from studio redwood. I'm sarah lane from canada on jan cutter on the show's producer We were just talking about E three game announcements and good day internet as well as the westminster dog. Show something for everyone. If you want that wider show go check it out. Patriot dot com slash dt ns. Let's start with a few things. You should know. Thailand securities and exchange commission ordered crypto currency exchanges to delist meam coins like doj. Coin as well as nfc's utility tokens and social tokens that have what it calls no clear objective or substance. Within thirty days the agency also banned exchange coins which are proprietary coins.

You look really nice to bitcoin. Miners approved the tap root upgrade to the crypto currency november. This is the first upgrade in four years. Which is meant to improve efficiency improve. Privacy make multi signature transactions infective unreadable and support Smart contracts on the lightning network payments platform. Bloomberg's mark gurman and debbie. Woo sources say that apple will release an updated apple. Watch this year. Twenty twenty one with a thinner display. Basil an ultra wideband radio and a faster processor. Apple will reportedly update both the standard and se. Model apple watches in two thousand twenty two as well as introduce a model for extreme sports athletes including adding a body temperature sensor to some models. All right those are the quick hits. Let's talk a little more about g mail and workspaces. Your g mail account may soon get a different look to google announced its workspace. Productivity suite is available to all google accounts. Now you don't get everything yet. It starts making google chat available in g mail in the place of hangouts chat which it is interoperable with but has a few different features. It's mostly a renaming so if you go into settings right now and say. I switched me from hangouts to google jet. You get a different look and you get a few more. Well maybe bell and whistle. These group chats are not the same however as rooms you may find that some of your older chats were set up as rooms in hangouts and rooms will reappear if you switch to this showing up separately but don't get too used to that because rooms will soon be called spaces this. With a number of new features like better message threading emoji reactions user roles moderation tools and basically things that make it more like slack than like texting. So that'll be the difference between chat which is more messaging interface even though you can do groups and spaces which is right now called still called rooms which will be more of a slack like space with workspaces. Smart canvas you i. You'll be able to move from an email to a real time. Google chat space within the same window. That's why it's all integrated together. It's where you'll be able to do. Things like collaborate on google sheet or dock while chatting about it all in one tab That's all coming with the launch of spaces expected sometime this summer. All very google. If you're having a hard time following it but basically right now you can change your settings you'll get email chats and rooms and eventually rooms have become spaces and eventually spaces will become something that is actually sort of interesting other news involving this includes a google workspace individual plan for nine ninety nine a month that gives you access to advanced workspace services without having to set up a dedicated domain So if you want some of the advanced features that you get as a business but you don't wanna go through all the things to be a business guilt to have that option eventually and the launch of progressive web app for workspaces coming in september as well as client side encryption for enterprise customers so a lot of a lot of announcements here. But i don't know about y'all jen sarah but for me it's the idea of workspace is being like oh turning g mail into a more collaborative space bringing docs in bringing chad in and making it useful. That sounds on paper anyway. Like like something. I'd be interested in. Yeah a lot of google naming convention stuff. I roll my eyes out. Just because google does this all the time. Although you know. I feel like hangouts too casual right. You know we. This is a suite of productivity tools for work so so it seems like they're going in the right direction. Yes making something like a room called a space but essentially acting the same minimal but sure moving in the right direction how to be able to have a better kind of cross google products interoperability for example. If we get a mail bag. And i wanna ask Jen and tom. Roger about it real quickly. And i know that they're hanging out in a spreadsheet that is connected to the show anything that makes all that a little bit easier and keeps me within you know the google world Make sense to me and is obviously what they're going for tom. I haven't embarrassing confession to make until your explanation right there. I not keep straight all of the different. Google like works based off and hangouts and chancellor lawrence. I don't know there are different versions of that. I don't think you're alone in that now. It was like a really nice fast. Know a little more now. Ready for it fine. Hey yeah this is definitely four people who do this for a living like unless. We're all switching to workspace. I can't see myself switching just yet i'm gonna let other people work out the bugs on this. Yeah and this. I don't know what the mobile aspect of this is. If there is anything right now you can do meet an email on the mobile app I assume that it would be chat coming over there yet. But i didn't see anything about that. I only saw the desktop But yeah i. I like this idea of having useful to it. Seems like maybe we are finally seeing the huge battleship that is google productivity tool shifting. I it's been better on the enterprise for a while but but the consumer facing version finally turning into something that does a little more streamlined. At a little more usable we can. We can laugh and make fun. And i think rightly so like well hangouts now been renamed chat and you know and it used to be g talk and before that it was something else. I think they've finally decided. We're getting rid of hangouts and not gonna call it anymore. It's chat email and meet and who knows maybe this time actually stick with that instead of introducing something else you never know all right and bytedance launched an enterprise product called volcano engine. Last thursday volcano. Engine will let companies use the same recommendation. Algorithm tiktok uses offering data analysis and other services the algorithm also powers talks chinese version johann as well as news aggregated twitch. How chinese companies. Jd dot com. Vivo china construction. Bank and julie have all been trialing volcano engine over the past year. Yeah this kind of got lost in the wash last year but it resurfaced in a couple of places today and i think it's worth talking about the day after the us rescinded the executive order against tiktok which one of the reactions to that might have been them licensing out there engine to oracle To operate They they come up with this plan. So rich lino put together a lineup. Today produce produced things for us suggested that this this may have been an idea that bytedance got while going through that process of like well if we don't have to like if we're not forced to licensed out there there's an amazon web services equivalent for us here maybe maybe we could take this algorithm and instead of having to hand over the source code we could license out its operation as a web service to people and i think that's really smart really smart especially since you know tiktok it. It's the hot new thing in many ways for social network those like me who hang up on tiktok enough to be like god. It's why does it no me why is my for you. Page the way that it is yet mostly accurate knows that like yeah there. Is that kind of special sauce. Coin almost algorithm. When i i was thinking about the stray i was like i wonder if tiktok thinks the special sauce days of the algorithm are numbered and so the company bytedance might as well make a little money licensing the special sauce out to other companies. Because it'll get replicated eventually anyway but but yeah. I think it's i think it's inevitable that they're going to be companies that want to pay for this and it's good revenue stream and they're yeah there's probably some political element to it too that the company had been batting something like this around and was ready to go now. I see this as a huge thing for tiktok. Not just for your. Here's another revenue source. But they're gonna know what everyone else is doing with the algorithm. And how is that going to feedback in tiktok or any future offerings. They have. That's a very good point. This this could improve the algorithm and and to that point. Avoid sarah what may be motivating it like ou our algorithm. You know people are catching up. Let's license it out and then that will improve it so we actually stay ahead The the that could contend well one of the hottest last pandemic era. We've been in has been the benefits and drawbacks of remote work and how hybrid work. Maybe the best of the to at least for some workers in some bosses with anecdotal evidence abounding. We're only starting to see more. Rigorous studies being published about the impacts of our collective change in working habits. Michael gibbs frederick mangle and christoph seem roth at the university of chicago released a working paper describing their study of remote work of ten thousand employees of an asian. It services company between april twenty nineteen that's pre pandemic and august twenty twenty few months under the pandemic now working papers haven't been peer reviewed. They haven't been published in a journal. They're working paper. So take that how you will the But the scientists use the company's sapiens analytic software which is installed on employees computers to monitor app and mouse and keyboard usage to determine how the employees were spending their time working every day and the percentage of completed tasks relative to assigned tasks. So what did you get assigned. What did you complete. The data covered april twenty nineteen through august twenty twenty like i said overall employees worked thirty percent more hours compared to pre pandemic times including eighteen percent. Were work outside of normal working hours so they were working longer. Roughly one point nine hours more per day with employees with children working even longer on average this saw the employees maintain roughly the same overall productivity output but productivity per hour. Dropped twenty percents. And you might say well why what you know. What's going on there too many meetings. Three searchers broke down employee time. By collaboration hours aka meetings and focus hours finding that work from home created substantial and ongoing coordination costs group meetings generally increase while one on one time decreased. These collaboration hours also increased as work from home continued with the number of microsoft teams calls per week. Averaging fifteen in the fourth week of the work from home. Study up to over thirty by week. Twenty four so people as time went on kept saying well. We need another meeting. You know we got. We got a check in with each other a little bit more often. We're all remote. The researchers also noted the findings are significant given this type of organization often predicted. This is the type of organization often predicted to be successful when you shift to a work from home kind of situation all right. So the the caveat here before before we start parsing our reactions. Is this as you mentioned. Sarah is a working paper right. So there's not peer review on this but let's say these are these are reputable researchers. They've done other work before. Let's say it makes it through peer review and gets published. This is also one study of one organization. These are valuable data points. But you have to be careful not to conclude like and therefore now we know work from home is not productive There's a lot of questions raised by this. Which is how science works. So what i'm looking at this and seeing is there are interesting questions to address which is what if you don't count meetings as work right. The reason they had mouse and movements was to note when you were engaged with an app versus when you know you're just sitting back and reading right. It helped to identify when work was actually being done. And i found it interesting. That more work was actually being done in the same amount of hours than you would when you were at work because the theory was. Oh you're going to goof off more if nobody can see u turns out no and the reason for that might have been meetings. Well what have we don't count meetings as work or what we separately count up then. What kind of productivity stat do we see. 'cause my guess is the meetings did suck up more time because you didn't have that personal connection and so you needed or at least some people felt like we need more meetings. Because i'm not seeing you in the office anymore. Which meant that. You actually probably got more productive or you might have. That's the question to study. You might have gotten more productive in the hours you weren't in a meeting because productivity stayed the same even though you had all these extra meetings and extra time worked like they mentioned what was that last line there in the fourth week of the work. Study the average Sorry from the twenty four and the study. The average calls for thirty. That's the average. That's a scary scary number of meetings where you are sitting there listening to else and you might feel like you're being babysat at that point which i think would definitely affect my productivity especially knowing that everything i do in. My computer is being monitored whereas in the office. I feel like a little bit more free from having that kind of constant surveillance even though you around everybody watching it feels more invasive when it's in your own home and that would definitely affect me mentally. Yeah and this goes. So i just wanted to say this is one company so their corporate culture involved this what might be different in a different company. Yeah i mean it. Depending on definitely who. I'm imagining a manager. Not even necessarily wanting to micromanage everybody and know where everybody is at all times. But being like well you know. We've got different schedules now. And you're not commuting and so maybe just just checking his better for everybody and the workers don't even necessarily disagree but hey you know if you're in a meeting you kinda stop what you're doing. Do the meeting catch everybody up else up on what you have been doing before you continue. What you're doing you know it's a. It's a start and stop enough times. Yeah your productivity is going to go down or you're you're my multitasking. And then people say you're not paying enough attention during the meeting. I always because we could see you your cameras on your looking out. Yeah i. I don't want to throw this report under the bus. I think this is valuable research. And and they're putting it out a working paper to get these kinds of feedback from other people in their own scientific community So they can refine it for publishing. But i do think that this is the kind of study that will raise more questions than it answers. Which is where. We're at the beginning of studying something new like this. You know. we haven't had this many people working from home at the scale before. That's what you're gonna get. You want this study. That will cause someone else to do like. Oh let me do another study to complement that. So keep an eye out for that jim.

And it's he three twenty. Twenty one event microsoft announced that flight simulator will come to the xbox series x on july twenty seventh microsoft promises. It's going to offer the same level of depth and complexity as the pc version. The game is also getting a one of a kind expansion tied to the release of top gun maverick. The movie More details on that to be released in november nearer to the release of the movie the game will be available as a purchase or through xbox game pass on release date. So have you have xbox game pass. you'll get access to the of titles. The xbox game pass a major theme for microsoft and he three The company announced thirty two other titles like bethesda star field halo infinite psycho nuts to forza horizon five dungeons and dragons dark alliance age of empires for all coming to the service on their release dates last week during its three business briefing. Im we mentioned this on the show. Microsoft announced that browser-based streaming will come out of beta for xbox game pass ultimate subscribers in the coming weeks with a quality upgrade to xbox series x hardware coming as well. The company has already said it's working on dedicated game streaming hardware. That's interesting also because it beats skittles in a twitter poll microsoft announced. It will release an xbox mini fridge shaped like an xbox series x console. That's coming in q. Four twenty twenty one. No price on that announced. Jed what do you make of microsoft's e three announcements. Well i. i should do a small disclaimer Sony is not at e three. Which is why. You're hearing a lot of microsoft. News and nintendo's treehouse is tomorrow so that is also why we're not talking about them so just to save me some ads later. That's why this is all microsoft I'll start with the mean fridge. I the fridge has a trailer. The fridge trailers really funny because it starts acting like this big grand thing and then. It's a fridge that opens. I mean an as afraid should it should open. They did a whole size version of this right. And this is the promised mini fridge that everybody can buy. The big one was like a one off into contest thing and this one is like oh we can. We can make money. Let's let's put a skin on a fridge at it is getting some of the most attention out of this. What does that say about the rest of these announcements. It says that a lot of trailers are very vague and doesn't really matter for a year. Yeah i'm i'm very curious and i know we talked about it on the show last thursday but i'm very curious about this idea of being able to stream everywhere and that i i think that was expanded on with the addition of these titles day and date releases of day it comes out as a title by comes to xbox game pass there. There's some impressive stuff here. Which is the beginning of the trend of microsoft. Trying to say yeah. The xbox is the premium way to game for us. But you can game with us in any way even on your tv. Yeah if you're playing drinking games while watching the conferences if you drink every time you said they said optimized for xbox you would not be here right now Yeah they have made it very clear. That game pass is the way to go. It's like four hundred ninety nine a month. Us it includes all of the games for pc and console and you get day one access to all of their first party new stuff which is a lot. 'cause they were hyping up everything it's coming over the next year you read the list of titles already. Eight is hard to say like yes like no no. No you should just buy games individually so that you have them forever when you're getting such a ridiculous deal and may end up playing more games that you can still buy a physical copy of later if you really wanted to but like mad The other huge huge part is this is the best way to get into gaming right now because it's all cloud and because you can't really buy your mileage may vary depending on region but because you can't really by the newer consoles because there's such a shortage and buying a new video card is like new car money fourteen ninety nine a month for a game that just works things you already own is a pretty easy sell especially when that comes to my smart tv which i think it's gonna come to fewer smart. Tv's than maybe some people would like But you know when it does you can suddenly just get a controller. Right and suddenly. You're you're playing xbox games those those tv are gonna have to be to not have the lag but for a lot of people that that's going to be a plenty good experience. Yeah they keep hyping That's not microsoft specific but everyone who's making a cloud gaming offering to keep saying like. Oh yeah you can play on five g. And i'm thinking like where am i in the world that i need to play. Which three or something on the subway at the beach. Kind of be fun. Maybe well amazon is opening up access to its luna game streaming services well all prime subscribers in the. Us will start to get access. June twenty first and twenty second luna was previously limited to invite only and sign ups from supported. Fire tv devices So if you had wanted to try luna if you're in that that very Thin ven diagram of wanting to try luna but not wanting to sign up for an invite. Well june twenty-first. That's your day users will be able to start a seven-day trial and play library of games on pc mac and fire tv devices as well as browser based versions progressive web apps style on ipad and select android phones. This is not changing anything with the way luna works gen but it is opening it up to say okay. Anybody who's a prime subscriber jumped in and there's a lot of prime subscribers out there Amazon is pulling the goal option. Select if everybody stampedes it and it breaks like all. You guys are so amazing. Look at how much you want the stuff and then of course if it works they get to be where the first gaming service in history that didn't crash are huge first-day and we've talked about it before but but luna gives you you have to pay for it right even if you're a prime subscriber prime subscriber just get you you still have to pay for it and then you also can pay for other things. I think ubisoft is the only one. Now the ideas that you'll be able to pay for more games from developers. Yes they are. Launching was an extra fifteen bucks a month for the channel that will have all of their games and then they're launching with. I think almost one hundred of the others. this is beta. So that's why. I'm saying launching my only caveat with all of these streaming services. It's like it's the future clearly. That's the way it's going. The future is not here for everyone again. I can speak from the canadian perspective. Whereas where i used to live i kept on dsl. I can only get Three hundred gigabyte plan and that was still over one hundred dollars and ten. Adp streaming promoting. Our is like ten to twelve gigs. Like it's it's already hard. Enough to patch your. Ps four games depending on where you live in canada. So as much as. I think this has really awesome and really cool. It makes gaming more accessible to more people. Because all you need is a controller. It's not here for everyone. And i'm kind of worried that a lot of people are going to be left behind because building networks takes a long time. It's it's the netflix issue. I remember when netflix's i offered streaming back in the mid late two thousands. Everyone was saying the same thing which is how am i going to do this on my small data cap. How am i going to do this with my dsl connection They eventually figured it out. So that indicates some optimism that the same thing would happen for video game streaming because these companies have an interest in and getting the isp's to accommodate it but that's not a guarantee that my guess is they will but yeah it'll be bumpy and some people will be left out along the way well if you want to save money and who doesn't and you're taking a trip sometime soon and you identify as perhaps older than gen z. Your age might actually work in your favor and to tell us. More is the immature traveler. Himself this is. Chris christensen from the amateur traveler with another tech and travel minute.

I'm chris christensen from amateur traveller in. Shrugging is this because People like myself who are older than fifty. Don't have the energy to wreck your place. So you discharge them last.

I just don't want to run one so that not having to reciprocate them mike. Okay sounds good. Yeah or else took out the mellberg. Oh let's do it. So i mentioned this is in a po- show on. Gd last week. My remarkable to e ink tablets had come in. And jeremy me talk about it and this is going to be my my newest live with that device. Oh in three months. I'm going to tell you all how i feel about The remarkable to germany says. Good luck one thing. A lot of e ink people don't realize i think he means people who are new to ink inc don't realize is the touch sensitivity is not nearly as good as most tablets he also says the extension for does also work in the edge chromium browser. Because i was complaining that it looked like it was chrome extension only and is primarily fire fox. Jeremy says it's actually the main thing. I use my remarkable to four so That's a good tip. Jeremy and i agree with you on the ink stuff. I've i've definitely because the remarkable to has this really neat pan and you can change the m the sensation. It's very it's the sensation of. Do you want something that feels more like you're holding a calligraphy pen or a pencil or ballpoint or some something else. There several choices. There's there's a real satisfaction in the writing sense but the tapping on things is is a different experience than a tablet for sure.

I'm tom merritt and studio redmond on saturday in salt lake city. I'm scott johnson and the show's producer roger chan. We were just talking about Sarah's no good very bad conduct experience and also my no good very bad. I r. l. experience with the app that wider conversation. Get good day internet. You can find it by becoming a patron at patriotair dot com slash. Dt and s. Let's start with a few things. Google updated messages on android two now use end to end encryption on all one on one r cs chats previously available in beta. The company also announced that the android earthquake kit system or alert system rather will come to turkey the philippines. 'cause don the kirghiz republic tajikistan turkmenistan. And who's becca stan. Research from mcafee's advanced threat. Research team shows that peleton bike plus and peleton tread exercise equipment containing a vulnerability that would let attackers gain remote control access to the peleton touchscreen that could allow things like malware that intercepts traffic accessing of your personal data even controlling the bike placer dread camera and microphone remotely or recording your workout own. None of those are terrible. But they're probably thinks you don't want mcafee team notes. An attacker would need access to the machines at some point in the supply chain and then have to insert a usb key with a boot image file containing malicious code. That would grant them remote root access and pelivan has issued a patch in the latest version of its firmware. Yesterday we talked about razors gallium nitrate charger for one hundred. Eighty dollars and mentioned that there were similar and also cheaper products one of which is made by wrath power. But if you're looking to compare these products do not go to amazon to do so. A month after amazon removed products from accessory out key and m pow power products have disappeared amazon. Hasn't explained any of these removals except to say that it generally suspend sellers who violate its rules. On sunday. the wall street journal ran a story about power offering gift cards in exchange for reviews which is something that amazon does not allow Germany's fraunhofer institute announced the ibm quantum system. One went online a few weeks ago. The companies first quantum computer built outside of its new york-based data centers. The system uses a twenty-seven cubit falcon processor and german organizations will now be available to arrange monthly contracts to use the computer for research education and training bloomberg sources. Say that sony plans. do you. Samsung led displays on its next generation playstation vr which will be reportedly released for the twenty twenty two holiday season. This comes as many. The our headsets pivoted to lcd's which provide higher resolution at a cheaper cost all right. Well there's all we got from sony this week. We got a little more from microsoft from this week. A little later in the show. But i scott. There's a new opening in new york. Yeah get your tickets ready. I guess if you don't live there or if you lived there just go check it out. Google will be opening. Its first retail store at seventy six ninth avenue new york city. This is on thursday at ten. Am so tomorrow. It's on the first floor of the building. This is the building. Google bought from the chelsea neighborhood for its new york headquarters or in that neighborhood. You'll be able to buy google hardware like pixels nests and fitbit's don't forget. They just bought them as well as get accessories. Not made by. Google like phone cases headphones. That sort of stuff. If you're into google branded merchandise they have t shirts. Hats dog toys in the like in the store will offer tech support for google products and everything from help troubleshooting to repairing a cracked screen For more involved repairs. You can schedule. Drop off and pick up though. Google wants to do as many repair. Same day as possible And google take advantage of your visit to show off. Technology like google translate and nightside photos and various spaces and kiosks within the store One of them's dedicated to stadia. So you know you haven't given up on that yet. You check that out and just like apple. There will be instructional events in the store as well. Yeah this the they've done pop up stores before but this is their first permanent location and it reminds me especially that stuff about the kiosks in the go into this dark room to nightside photos and see how amazing it is That reminds me of the experience. Store is there. there's a few of them out there. I went to a samsung location in tokyo. That was not a store they would they would help you buy their products online but it was simply five stories of demonstrations of samsung stuff so they had an instagram room where you can take photos with the they made you take a samsung phone with you through it so you could try out a say you know the galaxy phones. You're walking around. They're all kinds of other things. So it looks like google is like we're actually going to sell stuff in the store but we're also going to provide these kinds of experiences and we're going to do a little the apple genius bar stuff and the and the instructional. So it's it's a mix of all of those ideas in one. I wouldn't be surprised if they never open another one. This may be just a tourist attraction of way. Hey when you're in new york. If you're a big fan of the google products by that google store you can get all this cool stuff. I feel like i would go. At least just out of curiosity if i were in the newark neighborhood at some point in the future but yeah i there are plenty of people who are like yeah. Google makes hardware products. Everyone knows that but a lot of people don't or at least they don't think of google as oh. That might be the company that i i think i decided to buy next. You know flagship smartphone. Kind of thing and sure maybe you go in there because you need some repair stuff on your pixel and while you're there you say oh know i was wondering about this whole you know nightside thing or you know. My cousin has stadium. Maybe i'll you know while. I'm waiting to pick up. Something i'll i'll i'll give this a whirl. All of that is doesn't really. It's a win win situation for google. You have potential customers learning about stuff that you want to sell them and yeah it's it's a they're there for for google thing. I think they've kind of got. It's like microsoft's stores a little bit. Their companies known for mostly services and software and so people automatically think. I wanna go play with some hardware at a software company but providing this. They're in such a cool location May end up being just a great flagship place for people to go when they're in new york Whether or not they plan unrolling this like a regular chain. I think has got tons of questions attached to it not only as like kind of the retail world's changed a little bit and we don't quite know where it's headed next That's a whole issue. But you know they haven't said so my guess is they're gonna make this one store super rad. I would totally go in there and hang out. And i hope it goes well. Formed seems cool. I also feel like because it's part of the sprawling and already existing google campus. Not that they're going to be like secret. Google employees in their writing. Down your every move but it's a great place to kind of have their where you're like. Oh and then real people off the street or in there so you can get a little bit of a sense of what might be gaining traction or what people you know gravity or have questions about early. Yeah no. I was thinking i was thinking. They would use this as a as a bit of data to decide whether they ever went open another permanent location or not. But you're right. It's not even just that it's also like how people use phones and what what catches their eye. They're gonna they're gonna get all kinds of out of that. You're that's so true so true Speaking of a company trying to use your data to make a new product apple has been pushing into health technology as have amazon and google last week at. Www may remember apple announced the ability. Coming in iowa's fifteen to send data from your health app to your doctors medical record systems and in fact tuesday mayoclinic announced. They will now support. Apple's health records feature which is the existing thing where you can connect your health app to the records. It doesn't involve the sending until you get fifteen yet. That's all expanding and apple's getting a lot of credit for for plowing ahead in the technology space for health but apparently apple has loftier ambitions than just hooking your records up with your doctor. The wall street journal has sources and documents that say starting in two thousand sixteen apple began developing a way to offer primary care. The plan was to develop a subscription based personalized health program using data from devices like your apple watch combined with virtual and in person primary care visits. This is big business. There's there's a lot of companies doing this kind of thing like carbon health but none of them make the devices and apple does apple created the service for its employees as test with the idea of eventually franchising out to health system. So apple didn't want to run it but they wanted to create the platform that they could then give to actual health systems to use so apple took over some health clinics near its headquarters and in two thousand seventeen hired. Stanford's dr symbol. Say to run the effort which they code-named casper but it hasn't been terribly popular. It's one thing to dog. Food food a new iphone and use it out in the world. It's another thing to put your health in. The experimental product uptake from employees appears to be spotty not just for the clinics but also of test apps and app called health habit from dr as team was launched six months ago to encourage healthy habits like exercise diet. But half the people who downloaded it internally didn't enroll and engagement among those who did enroll has been low. of course that could just mean test. Product isn't working and that that's why you test products to find out whether they work worker. Not apple of course responded quite a lot to this report sometimes specifically two things. The wall street journal Posted but in general said that some of the assertions in the report are either. Incomplete outdated or just inaccurate information but in their responses they did sort of tacitly admit yeah. We're we're developing health technology products. Like this i mean. We're headed this direction. So someone's gotta be fiddling around in the space. I'm sure they're not the only ones but the more The more we are all tethered up to something that the more our healthcare and our shopping habits and are anything else will be tied to this stuff to your phone to your device to your records and having those records with you all the time and you know being able to get to those records quickly. Either whether it's your doctor or you or an employer or whatever. I think it's going to become some tip. Toland toward that obviously is like they say. The uptake hasn't been great here although apple. Maybe asserts that this isn't complete information. All of that aside I'm on board man. I'm all for this idea of. I walk into an office and they go. Oh here's your stuff okay. Cool looks like we're all good here. Let's do a quick blood test right. That's been added to your stuff. I don't gotta wait for a phone call. I don't have to try to call in and get voicemail like that whole process could be so much easier. And therefore ultimately i think cheaper for everybody although the health care system doesn't seem to care about that so much sometimes but i would love to just see that process. Be more efficient. I'm all in. I definitely saw some hotcakes around the internet of like well you know. Employees at apple does seem to be very excited about this and that may be true on some level depends on the employee. But it's more of if i was an employee and there was this product were like. Hey we're building this thing. We're going to test it internally. Please give you information. It's not well you might be like. Now i'm totally not down with that This also wasn't mandatory. But you also might be like well. I mean it's task they might be scrutinizing the data a little bit more than normal and already have healthcare. And that's kinda working for me. I like my doctor. I don't. I don't really wanna participate. This sounds messy. I mean it. It's it's sort of a lot to ask to be a guinea pig out a company like apple that i'm going to presume has pretty good healthcare benefits already you know for for regular employees to To be giving a lot of data because yes the company is is working on back end software that works with the devices that the company makes also. It's a lot of control. The how yeah. It's one thing to be able to swap your sim card into the test. I phone and try it out and then swap it back. It's another thing to switch your doctor right like i could see if you've got like you said i think that's a good point if you've got really good healthcare from apple. You might be like you know. I'm just gonna keep going to the doctor. I know i'm not gonna try out this clinic whereas and some of them will and some of them. It's not as easy of of an ask. I think But you're right. This is coming and you can all of you outside of the united states you can go ahead make your you know making fun of our healthcare system here if you want but i think it's not just the united states that could improve medical records sharing and access and making it really easy and simple to see all of your medical records all of your test results all of your your past appointments and medical history and everything in one place. I mean that that that is not done as well anywhere as it could be And so i am not against technology companies coming in and trying to create a safe and secure emphasis on safe and secure way for your doctor to be able to see all the medical information that you want them to see in order to help you improve your health. It's good it's good stuff. We're collecting more data than ever before. Now i have something. That's olmo i mean. It's it's sort of on the cusp. Have kaiser permanente aids big healthcare plan provider. And for the first time you know as an adult. I can log in and there's so much more information in in my you know in the general i don't know whatever you call it the portal when you log in. That's all arranged. I mean it could be arranged a little bit. Better rate could be sort of a better app going on. But but yeah. This is a great direction for us to go in but yes ways to go yet while speaking of whether or not it has a ways to go or perhaps you like it as it is the tom. Warren reports that the entire windows eleven interface has leaked online. After first appearing on by do and this is a head of microsoft's announcement on june twenty-fourth warren got a hold of a working version of windows with the new interface which calls itself windows eleven. It uses rounded corners has centered icons in the task bar and a redesigned start. Menu looks a lot like what had been planned for windows ten x. You might remember that was originally meant for dual screens later for chromebook like devices and then just kind of got retired overall. The new start menu is simplified from windows ten has pinned apps recent files and shutdown restart options if you don't like the idea of a centered start menu could move it back to the left so you have some customization there. There's also a task bar. I con for widgets which appeared becoming back. You'll be able to have things like whether calendar were news. Slide out from the side for quick access stuff that you need. In general throughout the day snap controls available from the maximize button to let you quickly put windows side by side. You can arrange them in sections as well and if a new app store design is coming. It wasn't leaked in the version that warren got although there is a new startup sound so it might it might yet be updated before june twenty-fourth that's the startup sound. By the way do you like it or not. Let me hear that again tomlin. Oh i don't know it's fine. It's fine you know the reason. I don't like it is because it sounds like notification because stop bothering guess won't repeat like i just did and you'll know i'm starting my associate with yes. I'm beginning the thing that i want to do right now. I don't know. I gotta say i am. I don't want to say him. Underwhelmed with how it looks. Because i find nothing wrong although i don't like the centered start menu. I don't like senator aligned anything but again you can you. Can you can switch back microsoft to be like we made what we're pretty sure is going to be a highly popular choice so we gave you the option to set it back yourself later. Yeah so underwhelmed. Maybe isn't the right word but i thought it was going to be a more dramatic updates and it still could be. I mean we could see something totally different but it doesn't assign the signs aren't pointing to anything that st- dramatically different than windows ten x what. I'm seeing here is that they took windows ten acts which never released right we. We only looks familiar with all the leaks and they said you know what it doesn't make sense to have a separate product that causes produce microsoft finally learn by that causes problems. Let's just take what we learned there. Put it in windows. Eleven and then under the hood. We can adapt the os to whether it's on like an arm processor. Something else but just make windows looked like itself now. I expected them to do that. And just call it windows ten because they said windows ten the last windows you'll ever need whenever wherever doing another one so i'm very curious what the story is to explain why this one is windows eleven. There's a little like eight percent chance in my brain that windows. Eleven windows ten. We'll continue side by side for a while. The windows eleven won't be exactly like windows ten. I think it's more likely that you it's just. Hey if if you're on the update cycle your next update will be called windows. Eleven because this one goes to eleven or or some other spinal tap jokes like that. Yeah i'm There there's a whole bunch of questions. I have about this this version of windows. Most of you i But for the most part. I'm excited to see the change. You know what i'm talking earlier in the show prep about how i'm nervous always about updates particularly windows ones and i think microsoft and huge credit if there's just goes smoothly so i for one. I'm really hoping for just a smooth nicely done You know Roll out of this thing so that we all can just pleasantly move onto the next version of windows awesome smoothie nicely done all next week will be accessibility week on daily tech news.

Here's the rundown on xbox game pass This isn't new but this is how it work. Subscribers get access to one hundred or more games that they can download and play microsoft promises that games from xbox game studios come out on game box game pass the same day. They release and at three. The following games were announced this coming to gain pass day of release and this is what was grabbing a lot of the headlines. Psycho nuts to back for blood. Forza horizon five halo infinite star field. But it'll be twenty twenty two but when it comes it'll come the game pass same day it's released and stalker to haiti's and among us are also coming to game. Pass not dave release scores but they are coming. It cost you ten dollars a month to access game pass on your xbox one hundred twenty bucks a year that's less than two top quality games. A separate plan costs ten dollars a month if you want access it on your windows. Pc instead that plan also includes a play which gives you the whole ea library of games. However that plan doesn't work on your xbox if you wanted on both your xbox and on your windows you gotta pay fifteen dollars a month. That's still cheaper than two or three games that also includes xbox live gold for multiplayer and xbox cloud gaming which lets you play games that stream to your android phone or tablet but you can still use your xbox controller and that will eventually include more than just android. Xbox cloud gaming is invite only beta right now for your windows browser and your eye. Os browser as a browser based web microsoft also plans to bring cloud gaming smart tv's and streaming sticks as well as the xbox one you'll be able to play new titles that wouldn't run on the xbox one through cloud gaming on xbox one so he sat out. Eat three as i mentioned earlier. So it's unfair to compare but microsoft certainly dominated the headlines and the path towards subscription cloud based gaming scott seems clear. Yeah no question about that in my mind in terms of the future It's just a matter of who's going to get on board. I and who will have the dominant hand and all that kinda got you know touch on that a little bit in your in your info here but it was clear to me last week covering all e-3 stuff we did live coverage of everything By far and away the one event that looks like it really had a handle on things was the microsoft event and that is not always drew of microsoft in the past and the last couple of years have felt like sort of rebuilding years or years that they're building up to what they're finally starting to talk about now or show or actually deliver on now. Which is the massive value proposition. That is game pass. And it's very hard to deny that value proposition. They are basically saying for a very low fee a month as low as ten bucks if your consul only or pc only or if you want both an extra five in your and you got everything ultimate you have cross saves you have cross play. You have games That will play on the cloud as well and these traditional ways and you have their version of the hardware to say. Look we've got the x. S they both serve different reasons or different kinds of clients. But here they are. we have great consoles. Oh you don't wanna play there. He'd rather play on your pc fine and got you covered there and we're doing date on those as well and oh you're somebody who just wants to play our games but play it on steam while we're selling it there too it's also on the epoch store it's also it's dot. Io and guess what you can get it on gog dot com like. They seem to be saying. I think very clearly their interest is this game a service and being able to play it anywhere to the point that they're saying even if i mean. This is all behind the scenes stuff. But they've said in some interviews. Look if nintendo or even sony or others were willing to let us bring game pass to their platforms. We do it Like they really want to do this. And i think because they're so out in front of it. It's going to be hard to compete with that for a while. I think sonia some catching up to do now. Even though the last generation it was the other way around and I don't know if somebody's got anything up their sleeve but because they didn't present during this crucial week of exposure Being take a couple of things away from that one you could just say well. Sony gonna do what they do. They'll have their own thing to say. Don't worry it's coming Or you could say. They put their head down and kind of ignored this because they don't have a good answer for this yet. And i bet it's kinda mix of the two if i were to be asked but overall though the big take is not only mike do really well for this e three. They really pounded home. The case the game pass is going to bring what they promised and buying all these developers and acquiring bethesda and all of that stuff is starting to yield results actual games actual release dates actual expectation on the part of the player. And that's a big big deal. Microsoft pulled net flicks netflix developed streaming at a time when everybody's like who wants streaming. Dvd's man you have solid solid dvd's and then now everyone thinks netflix's a streamer even though they actually still have the dvd's microsoft is doing that right now. They're saying like yes. Consoles of course consoles are important but they won't always eventually device independent gaming will be the future and we are already. They're bringing you along slowly by letting you download it now instead of streaming it streaming hasn't quite there yet but it will be an eventually you'll you'll be getting your games from us through a service and we really won't care what device you play it on. We'll have a premium devices console. Go from being a loss leader to like just being like. Here's the best way to play your xbox games but you can play them anywhere on anything through cloud gaming at. That's where i think it's going. Yeah i think you're absolutely right. We'll see how things go. It's gonna get interesting real quick. All right tell us about what's going on with this. Vr headset scott. All right we'll check this out If you're into the quest this may be interesting to you in a blog post about the v. thirty update version thirty update. That is for the vr. Headsets facebook ceo mark zuckerberg Said play space will be expanded. Fifteen meters by fifteen meters. And we'll also be adding Multitasking to oculus home. Which access sort of virtual monitor Solicited interesting technical advancements like a brick also mentioned that the ability to wirelessly stream content from using the airlinks system is coming soon to the original quest. That's good news for people like me but it's unclear if that will be part of this version or not But that some people been begging for so that'll be great for streamers anyway microsoft also announced. It started testing. i'm fat. What else. But i say microsoft. They do that. Got it on facebook. I have no idea i did that. they also announced they will be starting testing of advertisements. In oculus quest. Headsets don't hang up yet. Everybody after previously announcing it in may okay so they have already talked about this they that and now they're gonna do it. They're going to run ads. In the oculus mobile app ads. I appear in the shooter game blasting from resolution excuse me restitution games though resolution games right ahead that and facebook says ads will come to two other oculus apps over the coming weeks so they didn't say what those two apps were so advertising in your oculus quest. Sarah you own one of these. I own right as for having ads in your face. So so just tight clarification in may the company said. You're we're gonna run some ads in the mobile app and at the time. I was like oculus mobile app. How often do i open that. Not very often. don't care. Do i care if ads run. You know in my head itself. Which i used pretty much seven days a week for something or other. Yes i do mind. I i might very much. I do not play blast on although it sounds like it is going to be the first of of many apps that will eventually see ads like other apps that i pay for in various other app stores. I would assume perhaps incorrectly. But i would assume that something like supernatural which i pay annual subscription for would be exempt from something like this test. I don't know i. I will get very upset very quickly if something like that is something that i can't somehow opt out of even monetarily but yeah it's getting a lot of attention because people were like oh so close to your face. Everyone knew this would happen eventually. This is facebook. this is where all their money comes from and yeah. I can't say i'm surprised i don't like it but i can't say i'm surprised. Yeah i do this tv company. That relies on. Ads would put ads in the other products that they put out. You know like say with facebook. Facebook relies on ads. What did you see ads in the absence. not surprising. you don't get those apps. I actually think the absence may be better than putting it in the interface where you couldn't ignore them but expect that point to. I wouldn't be very well. Maybe whether the backlash would be as hard in the vr world as it was in some gaming circles and other stuff and ads started to appear in premium products. Time will tell but. I'm not excited for backlash gaming. Yeah it'll happen. Yeah probably will have probably happening now just as we said those words. It's already happening. Well let's check out the mail bag. Oh let's do it on yesterday's show with our guest christian cantrell. We were all wondering how. Well razors hazel. Led and ninety five mask was going to sell especially given the timing of mandatory mask requirements. Easing in general. Certainly in some places more than others. Mike wrote in and said. I'm only an occasional user of mass transit. Make lives in the bay area and says i'm not sure when if ever all be comfortable again writing on barred or muny without a mask. I would certainly see the value of wearing wondering flu season. Especially if i was a daily commuter. I suspect public transit. Transit will eventually drop the mask requirement. But it will be fascinating to see. What the percentage of voluntary mask wears will be a year from now. The certainly some risk that the mask market will completely disappear with the end of the pandemic. But i've seen much more foolish business bets succeed. You're right. mike may be more than just out of the club there. We will find out how many people decide to just keep wearing masks for whatever reason just because they feel more comfortable or they're they're like the rest of the world trying to stop themselves from infecting someone else which is very polite and i think that would be a great reason to wear a mask whether they need to spend money on a raise early delayed and whether or not. I'm still a little skeptical but these are very good points. Thanks mike yeah well you know. Fashion doesn't always make sense but it does. It does hope you express your individuality on mask wearing fashion or anything that we talk about on the show or anything that we may talk about under feature show that you'd like to hear about facebook daily news. Show dot com. Is where to send all of your deepest. Well i was gonna say darkest thoughts. I guess you could send those any thought. We'll do. we like to shut up.
