"When he shuts it down and he closes the lid or just walks away and at times out, it logs out. There is a guest mode. The beauty of the guest mode on the Chromebook is if those teenagers do get a hold of it and they use the guest mode as soon as they exit, it erases everything they've done. It's gone. It completely wipes it out. So the Chromebook is designed for this while they're on. Pardon me? Can the teenagers go in and do nefarious? No. All they can do is browse the web. They won't trust me. They will not want to take a look at his Chromebook. They'll say, grandpa, keep your Chromebook. I don't need it. I don't want it. Okay. But even if they did want to do remote troubleshooting for him. You won't need to. Yes, there is. There's actually a really nice chrome remote mode that lets you remote in from another Chromebook or another computer. And you put a link in the notes to that. Sure can. Sure can. Amazon has a lot of good Chromebooks for fairly little money. I would say a Lenovo, which makes a $260 or $250 Chromebook, the Lenovo flex is a very good choice. That's cheap. They even make them cheaper than that. I'd be careful about going too much. That were $87. Yeah, yeah. I would caution you against going too cheap. Because then they're sacrificing hardware and you don't want it to be so junky, it doesn't want to use it. So Samsung, Lenovo, HP, all make excellent Chromebooks, acer arguably, maybe the best Chromebooks, but they can be a little pricier. But I think 99 in the life. Yeah, they're really nice. They're aluminum body and all that stuff. But if he doesn't care, I think a Samsung is probably an I don't care. Yeah, get him a Samsung. Yeah. A teenager will steal it. So here's the other thing to know. And you probably should get one too, so you can learn up on Chromebooks. But the other thing to know about Chromebooks is they have a feature called power wash. It's very straightforward. If he decides, I don't know what they've done and anything. You power wash it, and it's just like it came from the factory. And I activate this. Remotely no. No, you can not. But so you might want to give him a piece of paper that says, do this, this, this and this, and your power washed. And then the beauty of it is nothing has changed because he's still logs into the Chromebook, the same as he always did with his Google login. Because the way the Chromebooks designed you.

"And so yeah. I just think says is a rock in it and out. Good too good on. Hp for bringing a really great chromos lineup here. That i think will really complement the existing chrome devices chrome os devices on the market. So what's next. Our next is what's up is getting a ones option to send in photos and videos had disappeared and telegram does dad and his great i. I have two elderly parents. Who don't close hand lose their passwords often and they are in my machine so i get often called. Can you please send me the password. And so this is something that i can do. That is useful. I can send it. It will disappear and it will not stay in their devices so. I'm glad that whatsapp is doing that. And i hope everybody will do that. In on the from the standard messages and google on android everywhere else. This should be not something cool to have but something that everybody has forty-four absolutely as just extending their overtime disappearing messages and other kinds of things. This is an additional feature in that feature set alright onto our next door. Final news is google made users may have options finally to cohoes limited a screen sharing to mute other. So seems like google is copying some of those things that zoom has been doing for the longest stein and you search like me go meet. It'd been complaining for for the same longest time so it is good. That is starting to come. You will be able to have up to twenty five co host for meaning. That seems a lot of people but but again it's good. It's it's good that google it's going to put more effort behind google made. Google made is a great product especially when your company leaves in the google assistant wide. If i'm paying ready for google mean. I need to go and hire soom because school. Meet dawson fit. There is no skews from google in this. So i'm excited that you are going to be able to start muting others and many other things into this. Yes oh this makes a lot of sense you can have. One hundred breakout rooms and twenty-five co hosts and up to i i mean most accounts. You're having two hundred and fifty You know in the in the business Not stop business starter then. Business standard is two hundred and fifty participants. Which means that. If you have twenty five breakout rooms. You have ten people per per room. You need additional co. Who can manage those breakout rooms. So they're just giving some flexibility there as they as they Beef up there. This is all within google workspace. Basically business versions of google workspace currently so so everybody on the same page here. So these are within. Google workspace for business one of the business standard starter or or or higher plans for those purposes. I think this is a great step in that direction..

"I have seen anything that big but it allows you to term discrim and that is something that when right there is nothing better than a long vertical screen. So i love that So i'm dallas incredible that it's not bad price. And then they have eleven inch chromebook x. To eleven inch it seems like a solid machine and but that that stop was that twenty one. Vertical screen sounds incredible. Tani's sharing the simpson tab. Seven plus is the latest so that shows that ran. I are not something clients and we don't have a tap so thank you very much trying to put us in line with that information. I took it on the seven. Seven was was sounded right to me but anyway the the point is is well taken here. Though that there is the chrome based coming out is at at twenty one point five inches It is smaller than the last chrome base. That was on the market. There was there was there was a chrome base that was twenty three inches. But that did not have a rotating Screen to give you that long view. It's beautiful. I think this this chrome basis. Actually beautiful out for those who don't know Anytime accra-based comes up. I tend to talk about this. Which is that. There are multiple form factors for chromebooks. And so we have chromebooks which are the laptop versions of chrome os. We then have chrome bits which are the little d- the thumb drives you just stick it in any hd report of any monitor and it turns it into a computer. You can connect to bluetooth keyboard mouse if you'd like to. We then have chrome boxes Chrome boxes of those little mini. Pc's like mac mini on so small box form factor. That you can then connect all kinds of paroles to and then we have the chrome base and the chrome base of course gives us that all in one device where you have. The monitor built in to a Some kind of arm that can be stabilized and giving you all of those peripherals on the on the on the on device for usage and so chrome comes in all of these wonderful flavors and that is fantastic. And i'm just very excited. They actually have a works with chrome monitor That i think is twenty four inches Agosto and so that has also come out along with twenty three point. Eight twenty yes. So the twenty s twenty four inches and and then they also announced that That new chromebook That is kind of a competitor to the lenovo chromebook duet even a the the The latest lenovo tab twelve pro. I mean these are really all in that. Same class of tablets. Turn computers when you want them to be and so on. This is the excellent x. To eleven so another. Eleven inch screen. When i've just learned is that while the eleven inch floor is is good for just needing something on the go. I really can't use that as my daily driver. And so i really liked the fact that we have. These works with chrome monitors that now just usb cable plug it right into a device like the x. To eleven and now you've got a full size. Twenty three point eight inch screen to work on and uh so. I really liked that. Plus you have the touchscreen capability because you have the you have the main device that you can just use for touchscreen purposes. So i'm i'm really excited about what chrome is doing with their. Oem partners to really bring more devices in multiple different form factors..

"Kind of the luster You know Rubbed off really quickly and so it didn't really come Come out of the gate running the yoga tab off thirteen yoga tab eleven great android devices and so i'm looking forward to seeing what the p twelve pro does. But to be quite honest. I mean just from the the specs that i'm seeing. It doesn't seem that great Especially if you put it up against some of the other tablets that are out there especially in the chinese market where seeing a much better Pro tablets coming onto onto the market and the honor tab of e seven pro You have some really really good ones. And the only distinction is that while way and other companies are blocked from selling in the united states. Currently opt for for you know. International cyber security reasons But otherwise i would probably get the one of the wall way tablets any day Because they're just better specs. So i'm a little bit on a little bit tenuous about lenovo. P twelve pro are the tab. Pto twelve pro but you know hope springs eternal it. Could it come out come out of the gate and people could love it So we'll see see what happens. I'm looking forward to seeing on actual pricing and actual specs but You know we need. We need this. You know. I i think that with samsung's tab s what is it now the s eight s a nine Coming out no s. ten. Maybe yeah we're at the tabas hem ma up. You know like in those iterations of having really nice beautiful tablets coming on the market. We need some more android versions that allow you to have that. Seamless integration of of the decks platform. So that you can go from android on a mobile device to android big desktop display and We really don't have many of those in the samsung world. But i would love to see some side loaded versions of onto some other android devices. So i just the the specs just need to be high enough. I'm curious to see how that will work again. That requires some little bit geeky than than not. But i think. I think we're in a good year for Great designs but probably not the best hardware coming out just because of the pandemic and and supply chain shortages with regarding to somebody. ss's on back order and and other chips So i'm not sure what we're gonna get this year. I'm really looking forward to maybe twenty twenty two and twenty twenty three Market where we will hopefully have overcome some of these supply chain issues. And we're gonna see what google does with this Tensor Chip that they're building for the google pixel six and six pro if they are really starting to put machine learning on these. Soc's and they work really. Well we're going to see that happen across the board with more and more manufacturers beyond just apple apple seems to have gotten it out the gate google's now putting it out the gate we'll see samsung follow with intel. And we'll see more and more of these machine learning pieces come out the gate which means that processing can happen in jul- modes and we can see lots more data being You know happening data processing happening on the device very quickly. That doesn't require the cloud. And i think that can be really a a good and powerful a says. I don't know if this P twelve pros is really the the The answer well. I'm going to say to our to our next news. Hp announced new chromos machines. And i don't know about twelve. Next up i have not had next up. I don't know his win. Gave me a really long time. But i'm going to admit the hp chrome base a ten. It's one that has got my attention not for any. It's not only it's ridiculously sizes screen for chromebook. So twenty one inch crumble.

"A statement Query and people can rank yes or no based on their agreement to those things you can do it based on a five point scale or whatever you want but then obviously the higher the number of agreement metrics toward that list. The higher level of psychological safety is embedded in the team. So you really wanna work to be able to build teams that have greater levels of psychological safety and you will see teams get better and therefore have greater cohesion. So it's just important to remember that both building and maintaining psychological safety are very important to organizations. And i can imagine that's even more important today when we don't have a lot of face time and we could be a little bit hurt by email or you know we can just not be paying attention to the fact that we might just start disregarding things that in in in a physical environment we mean We may actually be a little bit more sensitive about and so.

How is oldest changing all this pandemic all these work in remotely an older discussions that are back and forward. He goes out ical saying well. We're social created creatures. Many people need a place to go. What community to be a part of.

What happened was a change. Yeah i'll i'll quote from the article. And i think this kind of is the most salient argument in the entire article. He says quote. Some organizations dealt with enforced work from home but using endless zoom meetings as a form of compliance a high tech way to take attendance but others leaned into the opportunity to create nimble task oriented decision. Making and communications hubs ones that were no longer constrained by physical proximity and quote. And i think that's says it in a nutshell and then onward to our next article..

Are Smart Phone Apps Ripping You Off?

"Both apple and google are being sued all over the place for how they run their stores. The app store the play store and what these two have been doing. Is they use their shared monopoly control over the ecosystem of phones to put up tollgates to rip you off a lot of cases. You're not even aware how much you're being ripped off their when you download an app that comes with this subscription or purchases. It's marked up an additional thirty percent for the toll that they have to pay the app. Developer has to pay to google or apple and this is so different than the era of the pc. The mac book the windows. Computer the chromebook that when you go to a website you use any function on your computer apple and google and the people who manufacturer chromebooks and all that they don't extract a toll and so the cost of anything you pay goes to who built that service now. This is a huge deal with apple self-dealing trying to rip people off on pandora and especially spotify to try to get iphone users to use apple music. It is true self-dealing where apple is able to grab all this money and google just as guilty in this area and microsoft who quietly has become one of the most valuable companies in the world again. I mean nobody really thinks about microsof- but microsoft has come up with a way to get around this on phones. That probably has google and apple. People furious where they've got a platform they've developed. Where on a phone. You'll be able to access things web-based that operate like apps and avoid the rip off thirty percent. Add on that you have to pay right now in the app store or in the play store and so no that with apps you're using that you're paying usually much more than you have to

Why We Need Voice Technology for Children With Dr. Patricia Scanlon

"Why do we need voice technology specifically for children while the shelf speech recognition technology tends not to work very well for kids. It's akin to what speech recognition technology was for adults ten years ago which was pretty bad and nobody was really using it at the time. And there's very good reasons for this for kids. They're physically very different right you know. We know that they're they're vocal. Tracks are thinner and shorter the vocal folds of smaller so the actual physical voice resides in the different parts of the spectrum. There speech language is different. I mean you know. Children's language developed so much in those early years from two to four to six to eight to ten you can see how their languages maturing it's become more sophisticated is beginning to follow the language rules as they get older when they reach a by ten and they start sounding a little more mature but their behaviors are so different. I mean adults tend to be quite behaved. Very well actually. It's very little. I very bill speed. How adults when you take dialect and accent. We tend to try and follow the language rules than we tend to try and realize how we should interact with voice technology to get the best possible result but kids don't kids don't follow the language rules that behaviors. They along gate. Were they words. They over pronounce words. They p- unctuous They showed the whispered they sing and their environments that they're in that they inhabit tend to be always noisy. I mean nobody is a four year old likes to go and have quite time on their own. They tend to be around the adults. They tend to be into their kids. They tend to be. Tv's in the background and adults token northward. Kids are in classrooms playgrounds from cars. When the us. I want to use voice technology. It's not in a quiet environment and we have to be really mindful of that. We also have to be mindful of the channels which children interact with technology. All different chipset from cheap old smartphones more expensive ipads to chromebooks two laptops to Cheap microphones on toys. A voice technology built for kids has to work in all those environments all those channels and be able to cope with the very ability of kids speech speech in terms of their acoustically. How they sound on on the physical differences both well as the language and the behaviors. I'm very much so we need to protect kids. Data it far beyond what we. We consider important nine space in life. Our kids are sensitive sensitive when it comes to kids. We need to respect the privacy of kids data and that's critical as well

Getting chippy: ‘I’m a Mac’ guy is now just a guy who likes PCs better in ad campaign from Intel

"If you haven't seen them until put out a series of commercials with justin. I'm a mac guy. And he's he's as i'm a. I'm just adjusting. Just i'm a human being. He goes and he goes into the living room and he talks to a person on it looks and he's like. Oh wow. this has two screens. Oh well this guy's playing video games this stuff you could never do unimak the end There's one that the key word on the front computer with the second screen. They they screwed up the after effects audit and the second screen is hovering over his hands in like a split second anyway. So these are the commercials. I think these ads are mostly just integrate itself dunked on select just objectively. The ads didn't work the way they wanted to. Yeah let me make the case for the ads. Intel is about to enter a new ceo. Yep they're about to enter this extremely weird middle period where either going to figure it out or not. Yep inside of that middle period every time apple puts out an m one or m series computer. Yup the story about until being dead is everywhere yep into also has hundreds of oem customers with their chips inside their computers. These are ads about real problems with max so like it is true that you cannot touch the screen unimak yes. Many people have noticed this. It is true that you can't follow it over and a tablet is true that you can't use the silence on it. It is true that apple really wants you to have we. Did we talked about fitness. Plus with ashley like apple wants you have an ipad iphone and mac like yep that is true that there are no games on a mac like none of intel's points for wrong. It is true that the design of a mac has been static for years In even with the new chips they still look the same yup and maybe that will change now but on itself is true so the things that intel is saying are just true. Criticisms of the mac get hundred percent. That's it that's all i got. I obviously did not work out. Yeah the thing like every time apple releases a new Embraced mac it's going to be intel's dead. Stories is really every single time. I talked to a company about it. He left hopper. Like you chromebooks. Whatever it's like yeah but M one like here's your battery. Life is like actually half of what the competition is. And it's gonna be a long time before there's an answer and like to do with itself in that that period yet again new. Ceo he just started. I think in a couple of weeks. He's going to do his first. Big thing is the first big thing that the screw it. We're we're giving up on trying to have this stuff ourselves we're just gonna have to use mc make our stuff. Yeah we'll see. That was a big striking for those wishing. He's got to do something that's really. They're about to enter this weird fallow period and the whole point of the new to change the strategy and he just started. So what's the first thing to do is like just remind everybody that from a design and capability perspective. That mac is like actually quite static. Yeah okay well. Maybe like microsoft tries this every couple of years to like maybe had very predictable results. But like i get it i understand i. Just don't i think maybe they should have seen the predictable result on the other hand hiring justin long that made everybody talk about until that's sure got it themselves a whole if you believe all is good press which do not as a method. They bought themselves a cycle. We'll see

Qualcomms incoming CEO on what he really thinks about Apples M1 Macs

"Welcome cristiano. Thanks for joining us on the podcast today. Very happy to be here. Obviously you had some big personal news. You renamed the new. Ceo starting to stummer congrats on that wall. Thank you so much. Incredible privilege for me to be named seal. I'm very honored butter. Yeah we'd love to hear a little bit about What are your first priorities. Going to be as the incoming ceo. Weren't you begin. A lot of people. Ask me this question. Would i like about about this transition. We're doing a qualcomm. This is a story of continuity and it's about keeping qualcomm. You know technology. I company company continue to lead the pace of innovation but having said that We have been doing over the past few years really transforming the company into beyond mobile in oh always had a very strong in mobile business our core business also the licensing business but we started to grow into automotive starting to grow into analog with our ephron sorta grow into the beginning of that so the priorities will be continued to execute on this incredible opportunity. We have ahead of us. Which is five g which is also making telecommunications or communications in general no longer unique to the mobile space but across every other industry and really capitalized on that opportunity. Cristiano to that as you take on this role what are some of the biggest challenges facing qualcomm. Wh what keeps you up at night. The number one challenge we always said in. Our businesses is very unique. We have to reinvent ourselves every year. We have to win the flagship. You know over and over again every year so you know i think all of us qualcomm. It's about making sure hours was focused in driving technology roadmap to become complacent continued to drive the roma ford. And you know right now. If asked me what keeps me up at night right now is supply chain grads as having the semiconductor industry. I think it's the result of a lot of success in general about an acceleration of digital transformation across a number of industries. But this is causing a lot of stress as the supply ching was not prepared to deal with the growth. And but you know we're navigating a very happy to the position we have right now. When is the supply chain issue going to end like. Is this something that gets resolved. Pretty quickly or is it something. That's going to take a long time until like samsung and tsmc. Some of these other companies can build mark factories. No look if will get better at the end of this year we have line of sight and even our scale We're very fortunate very well position. And we have line of sight of this going to get result with entity or but you're correct Part of solving this problem is to a celebrates didn't build out more capacity and that is about building buildings in new clean rooms in new equipment. The way to think about that shara is When depend hits There was an assumption made in general across the industry that that the capacity for semiconductor. You know for if especially if there will be recession given pandemic mike you know was it was good in the reality. What we saw was the opposite the enterprise. Transformation of the home people buy new computers by new printers. New wi fi systems upgrading broadband companies had to connect their assets. So we saw celebration of. I'm not in digital transformation across the board Paper money disappear. That's people started digitize. You know everything payments Even a small business and we always said the mobile has been very resilient five g we said Into very beginning we state our five g numbers even the beginning of the pandemic said. If i've transition is still going it's important. We ended the year the high end so all those things happen for a capacity that was not put in play for growth. And i think we're just seeing you know the effects of of demand in supply. But the manda will catch up with Supply supplier vice versa towards the end of this calendar year one area. I'm really interested to hear about is the pc market You know obviously this is an area that had tons of demands over the past year for laptops and other devices report working from home call comes made a big push in putting your mobile chips in. pc's We saw apple. Come out with. Its m one powered max which proved to be extremely popular How is demand for those m one devices. Impacted your focus on pc chips. Hasn't your computers more and demands like what sort of impact has the m one had on akam pc. This days is one of my favorite topics. Conversations finger for discussion look rented and talk about the specific demand. For 'em one. This is a great opportunity to talk about the trend so the pc was being transformed and we always believe welcome that you know. They'll be conversions between mobile nbc and mobile became the bigger platform. They're more smartphones. Abc's to develop. Our eco-system is driven on the mobile side. And we believe in that convergence. That's where we started. You know several years ago. I think more than four years ago with microsoft on this journey of windows on snapdragon in now recently with starting to see snapdragon on chrome os in chromebooks then the pandemic hits and would have been hit. It change certain things forever. And i am super excited about this because like if you're talking to me from a pc right now. And i'm sure you are you. And roger. b. C became a communicator device. And as people make phone calls they started make a teams called zoom. Zoom became a verb in many languages in c. now is connected became a communicator device. Camera become really important. I'll do a multimedia became important. You doing you take a break. Watch netflix the future. With five g connected disease are going gonna watch Not only video but gonna play stream games with ex cloud an amazon luna luna or google stadia and all of that and then on top of it people. That had a workstation are home. They don't have a workstation to have their laptop but using five on demand computing. You'll get access to any application that you can run on the cloud computing platform of the cloud so the pc's completely transformed in apple switching to a m one with an arm instruction set just validated at transformation. Start moving developer as fast paced. So we're more convinced an ever. Conversions is going to happen b. C's going to be a great opportunity for expansion on snapdragon and it's that's one of the first things i did after being announced to co elect was to do the acquisition of nubia s. We believe there's an opportunity for us to lead into cpu performance as well as we start to think about this complete transitions of pc to associate. So let me let me ask gonna fall on that. Because i think we might have a new but one thought on this question about apple versus talk about the long-term opportunity but were you frustrated by the fact that you have been pushing snapdragon power laptops for a couple years now. That have really gained a lot. Traction while attention than apple comes in with the san juan and one powered mac guy huge buzz postal raving about these things whereas the other snapdragon laptops will ask. We have not really gone. The best to reviews was some frustration. That did you get to go back to your team coverage thick how you do this. I'm just curious your thoughts. On the the the different reactions that though snapdragon lockups had versus those and one. Max no no not at all i. Here's how answer this question roger. We knew that we started this journey. And this journey about a windows for example which is being running on x eighty six. You know Forever when needed to introduce arm extraction sets to windows and we work with microsoft and we knew that we're still building this journey as an example for example In this summer we're gonna now. We're celebrating that you know that next latest update for microsoft windows which announced support a sixty four. Bit emulation on orm in wish starting to see the very first time the enterprise ice laptops. Hp just launch commercial. Enterprise laptop with into snapdragon. So we're at the beginning of the ramp in the way we see the apple lounge. It's a great tailwind. Because what apple did by lounging does not only validated that transition but you know moved developer ecosystem the difficulty that you have when you try to introduce a new instruction set on the pc and this is not new to to apple. I think they've been to those that. That transition twice if you look at their history and then maybe have tried in the past trying to pass the longtime ago with a windows rt and and that really only works. When you're no longer have a second class you know a platform is just the great windows. Experience in every application is gonna run in. You're going to be able to keep everything you had a windows. Any wedded new coming from mobile platform in in. We believe we're now getting to the end of this journey in what what apple did which really help brother ecosystem. Apps apple helps microsoft basically create the resolve within developer system to start doing arm native apps going forward so my answer to a question is super. Please we're super excited invalidates. You know that bats. And i think that's going to happen Not only within. You know the apple wicca system but within windows as well as google and no question when we announced a new via acquisition if you look a press release was incredible as a parade of everybody to mobile nbc segment including microsoft in google in the saint press releasing. This is great. You know so. We're excited about that. Yeah i wanted to dive a little bit more into nubia You know you guys pay. I think one point four billion for this company started by former apple engineers. Basically you know why. Why do you need nubia okay. I'll you know i'll tell you. The story in this has a lot to do with the conversation we just had about. How welcome see some. The industry transitions in how we execute on them. So the story is if you remember back in tweet g. into feature phone days and the blackberry we knew as we brought four g and mobile broadband to the seller space. The will have to become computer. She's gonna have a broadband so you need to have a computer in your hand to make use of the broadband and you're going to have a prosser we're gonna run of have an application and In we knew at that point that you didn't have a high-performance processor for battery powered device we could not get that from the arm roadmap to so so we basically put together a cpu team and we build if you remember. Scorpion was very first. Gigahertz clock. cpu in a battery powered device After that crate in debt drove the absolutely majori of the smartphone platform across. You know that time you know indoor it was growing to other oh s.'s. At the time and clearly it was squawking was the forefront really creating a mobile computing platform with our own. Cpu

Microsoft may make its xCloud service available on a browser

"Do you play xbox games on your web browser microsoft maybe working on making its ex cloud game streaming service even more accessible writer chang. This is your daily charge here. Talk with us about x. Cloud gaming expert offering zola's so what is the latest with ex cloud. So right now myself is testing the streaming platform on web browsers report game outset company. Employees are currently testing it. And this comes before the big public preview the expectation for that is sometime in the spring where everybody else is going to be able to play the browser and for our listeners. Who aren't hardcore gamers. What exactly is cloud. Ex code is microsoft's streaming service. It's it's like the netflix video games. You pay a monthly subscription and games are available of via the xbox game pass and that could be streamed to your android device. It's a ciccio like having an xbox in the cloud ryan what games are we talking about these sort of current titles as it sort of back catalogue of older titles is anything is basically a free for all. It's a very wide range. Aid comes so you have. All the microsoft owned properties which includes of course like halo Bethesda games like fallout. So you have those games And also a lot of the newer games What the brand new ones and medium that's available and that's an xbox series access. Gabe came out. And you can play it on there. So you have those you have the bigger titles those you have any titles. You have odor games so we too wide range of what's available on the xbox xbox game pass got end in terms of the devices you know. There's the browser that we're talking about today you mentioned android. What about iphones ipads will. This is where the news of the web browser is the big news. This will allow ex class. Actually play on ipads and iphones will. What happened was win. Marks off tried to get x. Cloud approved by apple For the app store Apple said well since this includes two hundred games. Do you need to submit every game to be reviewed and of course that's a that's a paid especially since they switch out games every every mother's new games that come in and new games at go out so instead a string of Indicates amazon. Luna which will talk about embiid They're doing their service via web browser. And that sort of sparked. The idea of marks off of mike up began working on that. So yes this will allow people with iphones and ipads to play to stream games of the x. Cloud and of course people general that have a laptop heavy Chromebook have a would have any sort of windows. Device will be able to stream xbox games to it as long as they have a subscription got in so give me a brief state of the game streaming world. You mentioned amazon. Luna is obviously google stadia. What's what's been going on with the various cloud gaming services out there so let's with the big ones stadia stadium is going through a bit of a bit of a tough time. At the beginning of the month dugal said that they are shutting down their in house developers. So right now. Google is not making any games for stadia. They did say though last week that they are going to have a hundred four games. Come out for stadia. Twenty twenty one in general though it still hasn't caught on So there's not a lot of excitement for it as much as it was with. Google first announced it that people have tried and it's just not capturing every everyone then like i mentioned amazon luna. That's right now. And the early access phase people could sign up board. And they maybe picked to try it out if echoed x. Claude is the net flicks for video games. Amazon is appropriately. The amazon prime video of video games in that. There is the for the monthly subscription. Seven dollars you will get access to a certain number of games. Then if you want you can pay a couple bucks more and you'll get another you'll get you'll get access to another catalog like. Ub sauce games. So that's how they're gonna do it to where everybody's going to be able to sort of pick choose what they want. But they're sort of base line of games that are going to be available for the monthly fee de force that is for. Pc gamers wanna take their pc games and play it on a their their phone tablets or black or laptop if they don't have a gaming laptop that had a stumble row stumble last year when it launch because they invidia put out all these games available for streaming. But they didn't tell the publishers so the allergies publishers kept just pull their games from the g force now So it took a while for them to serve sort everything out now the services going smoothly It's actually free but you only get to play an hour for free but If you pay if you pay or you'll get a better access better better fidelity as well as well unlimited time. So that's also available of o'clock eighty. What about sony nintendo some of the other big players in the gaming world. Well sony was the first one to do cloud gaming. What their playstation now That launch back with the playstation four and not early on in the playstation. Four lifetime and sony just has not put any effort into it They release a few games for for its They'll they keep it. Keep it moving. But there's maybe a million or two subscribers which is hardly anything in comparison acts cloud It's just not not their priority at all I don't know if it will be. They'll if sony will change your mind in the future but as of right apple station is just stare sermon. Afterthought as for nintendo. They don't have a netflix type. Service yet The maybe that's the planning they do have a cloud streaming though For hey different reasons. So games like control. That is a very intense graphic game. It is just very beautiful looking and wouldn't it wouldn't attend all has done is dave. Dave reached out to a they partner up with a few publishers and developers and they are allowing these games to stream to the switch. So you still get all the scrape the -delity like you would on an xbox or playstation But you have it on your switch and that prevents the developers from having to create a very a very cut down low graphics low fidelity version of the game that we've seen with some other titles duke maternal win borderlands where they just have to cut out so much where it's doesn't look as great in it's on his memorable so that available but again that is for very different reason than say x. Cloud stadium got and we just went through or still going through the launch of new hardware right with the xbox series acts the ps five taco middleware streaming fits into the future of gaming well in the case of marcus off especially they want you to be connected all the time they want you to when you're at home they want you on your xbox. They wanted they play games. But they want you to look in netflix. Or whatever when you're on the goal they want you to be on the app so you could play games while your way And you're you know if you're at work the what you pull up your browser sake play while you're not working but So that's who marks off once they want you connected all the time and they have like they have the best option for that It gives everybody else. They're trying to find they're trying to get a piece of this because they know that there's a lot of people that wanna play games that maybe do not wanna spend for five hundred dollars on the latest new york so they're trying to find a way to get in there And it's they're. They're all taking their stamps at offering their takes on what the cloud services going to be. So are we ever going to get to a point where we can drop the hardware and the console entirely like you said there are folks out there who may not wanna drop five hundred dollars on a new system bogut appoint were that just completely. Needless completely out of the equation. Everybody's expecting this generation to kind of be the The real he wanted to determine whether we go with or without consoles. It's i still think we're going to need hardware. Future especially the way hardware is being developed with nvidia An md they're still producing this great hardware that that is really going to produce these even more beautiful games a blitz. It option is likely gonna be there in the It comes down to. Who's going to have the easiest access to stream to your tv. I mean the. Tv's are getting having more hardware than getting smarter but the only way to play on your tv right now without a console is like chromecast but if the if roku amazon smart tv's if those devices integrate completely with ex cloud and luna and stadia Well i mean crook assery works stadium but if all these other smart tv devices if they all start working together with these cloud streaming platforms where it seamless where you turn on your tv and you just switched to the the x cloud channel app and it starts going with all your without the xbox games that hey that may be it But we'll we'll have to see in the coming years how this generation pans out and we'll see what the other companies do

How Car Makers Collided With a Global Chip Shortage

"Automakers around the world are being hobbled by something thinner than a piece of paper. A chip shortage is shutting down auto factories, sending workers home and halting productions on several car lines. NPR's Ryan Kyle off reports on how we got here. Cars these days are basically two ton computers on wheels. So when auto production first shut down at the beginning of the pandemic, it meant a lot of extra computer chips sitting around At the same time, we were all sitting around, working from home and schooling from home and attending weddings from home. We all needed new computers. Every school kid needed a chromebook. There's the new PlayStation five, according to Kristin G check of the Center for Automotive Research. Chipmakers pushed their extra supply into all our new TVs and smart speakers and Internet connected washing machines. Whatever device you're hearing, this story on probably contains a computer chip. Meanwhile, auto sales rebounded way faster than anyone predicted, says Patrick Manzi, with the National Auto Dealers Association. Most of us did not expect this. The sails right in April, fell to the lowest on record, at least back to the seventies. Since we've been tracking this When carmakers suddenly needed chips again. Those supply lines were spoken for. Switching them back takes time up to six months to reallocate capacity. So now carmakers have a dire short term need that can't be addressed in the short term. Manzi expects global production to drop by about a million cars this quarter. It's it's It is a non trivial amount for American auto workers at idled plants. That means up to 25% pay cuts for the duration. The effects will trickle down through the massive cottage industry of car parts suppliers and everyone they employ at the car lot, Manzi says. There will be vehicles to buy. It just may be a little bit more difficult to find that exact specifications that you're looking for. If you wanted the red one with the leather. Maybe they only have the gray one with the leather, right. Now President Biden is stepping in Ordering a review and to expanding chip manufacturing in the U. S. Instead of Taiwan and Korea. Treating chips is essential American goods crucial to so many things we use every day. That new American factories would take years to bring online. In the meantime, the shortages spreading, disrupting supplies for cell phones and laptops. Analysts say it likely get worse before it gets better. For consumers. It's probably a good time to drive carefully and try not to drop your cell phone.

So there are a lot of chrome books in the 2 to $300 range Those air what I call kind of Low end there. You know, it really depends on The way they save money on those they use less good screens they tracked past Keep pattern out is good, but you know those air those air for some people, not an issue.

Roger j we were just talking about a cas product that makes you ice cream and ninety seconds whenever you wanted and why roger never cries wider conversation join our expanded show. Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram. It's also heavier and thicker overall but it also now starts at five hundred forty nine dollars instead of one thousand dollars. That has a thirteen point. Three inch nineteen twenty by ten eight hundred sixteen nine. Lcd touchscreen with the dual core intel seller on five twenty five you upgradable to an intel core. I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers. I think that's pretty cool. I like that. They are bringing that in and i am interested because i do live in a household. That has very high ceilings. How this would work in that kind of environment. So yeah. I'm very interested in the audio aspect. Well you might also be interested in what colour has come out. Oh yes the folks who make things like toilets and and sinks and lots of appliances however. Been a real. Cas mainstay for the last few years for some cool innovations and this year is no different. Even though we're not in vegas koehler has a new smart bathtub called the stillness bath. That lets you use an app or use your voice using google or amazon's assistance to fill up the water or perhaps set the mood by changing the color of the lights around the tab or even add some fog. You know you wanna kind of pretend like you're in the then present routines also turn on features in a certain orders if you wanna get kind of creative. that's cool. Yeah the certain amount of limitations with the base model and the base model is not cheap so temperature and depth control models alone will cost around eight thousand six hundred ninety eight dollars. That's right it's almost nine thousand dollar bathtub. If you want the experience tower that lets you activate fog and aromatherapy. That will run you just over ten thousand dollars. Both models are available in july. There are real things and if you want the version with lights and floor grades for overflow fifteen thousand nine hundred ninety eight dollars available. This october signed me off. I won't be buying those. Nope not even a little bit but we could have taken a bath at s in the new in the pre show roger was like. Why would you want fog. It's like this. Why does anyone want to be on. Yeah racist luxury suites in hotels for sure as well as apple's houses sure yeah something well. Yeah it's it's that like hey look at what my bath can do people go. Wow very fancy and then you know ten years from now will be like remember when we thought it was fancied to talk to your bathtub so that it would start filling up without touching it but Yeah it's it's somewhat silly because of the price. But i'm not really much of a bath person but they do look very nice all right. Let's check out the mail bag but ads do it. Nick wrote in with a pronunciation. Ramps own neck. You are not alone he says. Ac's rog is an initial list. Because it's our og like fbi or cia. People say ron yet. They're lower end gaming brand tough not initially them. It's an acronym like scuba or produce you f but pronounced off. It's like ace's can't make up their name minds. Then there's strict which is our subbrand strikes as a word it's a completely nonsensical made up word. But it's a word and you pronounce it as such nick as honestly as somebody. That buys a lot of hardware. Because i've rarely had a bad experience with them over the past twenty years. I am baffled by some branding decisions. The one the bugs me. The most is the strict subbrand. Sometimes acis makes the tricks products. The high end product in the product stock yet other times. It's a mid range product. Would it be too much to ask for consistency and product. Branding twenty twenty one. Yes apparently apparently we feel your pain. Nick i love the dichter's just like i just need to vent you guys. Let me let me let me get this up. Just we appreciate that. Yeah i mean i. i'm with you nick.

How Hackers Hold Schools for Ransom

"To try to put the attack on jessica school context. We reached out to dave bertie. He covers cybersecurity for the wall street journal. And he's been writing about this uptick in ransomware attacks across the digital world. There's been an explosion of ransomware this year. It's an increasingly common way. for attackers. to target businesses healthcare organizations nonprofits or as the case may be schools in the reason. Why is just because. It's an effective business tactic if you encrypt in organizations data. That's basically what they need to function particularly in a digital environment. So as you've had a business or school that have moved more remote learning. That sort of expands. The opportunities to take advantage are there demonstrably more attacks on schools this year. Are we just aware of them. Will the first thing that's always important to point out here is that it's hard if not impossible to count the dogs that don't bark there have been probably about three hundred fifty or more. Cyber incidents reported across the united states this year in schools in schools and others probably a few dozen have been ransomware but that said those are only incidents that have been publicly reported so in many cases schools. They don't wanna take the pr hit an embarrassing situation. They don't want people to know. They paid off a criminal group to get their systems up and running. They might just keep that on the dl and not notify anyone. Even though schools aren't the richest targets around one of the reasons that hackers focus on them is that unlike big businesses. They often aren't equipped to defend themselves. We have seen attackers really zero win. On some of these districts may or may not have built out. It departments in many cases in addition to them being sort of under funded over the course of years their it departments. The also had these really really insane strange just put on them so the coronavirus remote learning getting kids up and running with their chromebooks. Or what have you so. There's really a lot of moving parts here. And i think criminals are smart enough to take advantage of them. So yeah is there just sort of like a handful of people who are in charge in your typical school district of distributing the chromebooks and also guarding against malware. I mean i would say the vast majority of school districts they don't have dedicated cybersecurity professionals even in most districts aside from the larger ones. You don't have that much of a built out. it staff. I talked to the chief information. Security officer of seattle public. School district is a very large school district in the grand scheme of things the only have eighteen. It people for that entire district of that team. Only two of them are dedicated on cybersecurity. So when you're in a position where you are suddenly thrust into remote learning environment and you need to get tens of thousands of devices online with seattle. I think it was fifty three thousand devices for students alone. I mean you really spread thin across a very big network of devices and potential threats. The threat of ransomware attacks has extended to fertility clinics and company providing software for one of the covid vaccine. Trials and the human consequences can be harrowing. There was an incident in germany where a hospital was targeted with ransomware. And as a result of that who is actually in an ambulance on her way to the hospital had to be diverted into another facility about thirty minutes farther away and this wounded women ended up dying. She didn't get care especially needed to get so german. Prosecutors basically tried to connect those dots they were asking the question can we show in a legal way. Causation between these attackers can we show causation. That they actually causes woman's death and ended the day they couldn't it was more of a correlation not causation situation. And i think that was the closest that we've come collectively to getting to a point where we're saying. Oh there's actually a cyber attack that has taken someone's life Let's walk through how this happens. Let's say you are a school administrator or hospital. it percent what do you notice. I will typically you know if if you really if something's wrong with your laptop and you really need to get to work you'll call the. It guy you'll always it guy and you'll say hey what's up with my laptop. I can't log into my email. Then typically they'll run through some scans and see that something's wrong with the system. They'll eventually get some sort of communication from one of these ransom. Learn groups saying. Hey we're here we've gotten into your system. We've locked up your data and we want x. Number of bitcoin in response. So that's really when it sort of gets this point where a school or business has to decide okay. Are we going to alert law enforcement. Are we going to call an outside forensics firm to try to understand what happened. Have we backed up all of our data within our system. And how quickly will be able to get that back. Do we want to pay this ransom payment. Like is the tradeoff. Good enough for us to do that. So there's a lot of moving parts that a lot of Businesses or schools or hospitals have to evaluate is all as happens the baltimore schools. Where just by works. They shut everything down. They sort of put everything on pause for a couple of days. Is that standard. Yeah i can typically standard. I talked with a school district in southern california. A administrator notices email was down the. It guys said it's ransomware for sure. So they physically went to every device in their school district. So we're talking about a school district of six thousand kids. Went every room went to all of their offices. Disabled unplugged device in that entire school district. And that's that's one way you know sort of a crude way of trying to limit the spread of of these things and then obviously on the back end when all these problems need to go through each and every one of those devices can them makes your their clean. Get them back online. What how often do victims turn to outside help whether that's law enforcement or whether that is digital forensics company to help them abc's extremely common there is entire ecosystem cybersecurity firms specialized in this sort of work. So you have a forensic firm that might come in to try to understand. Hey this is exactly how they got in to your computer system. This is exactly the type of software that they're using. This is exactly the type of data that they took from your system. In addition to that you have other groups. That are adept at negotiating. They actually talk to these groups. They have long term relationships in some cases with many of these groups and they say we can talk them down from ten bitcoin to five bitcoin. Whatever whatever the the number is the so it is sort of an emerging field just within cybersecurity as this is becoming a bigger and bigger problem. How much money are we generally talking about. Because my husband actually just how to ransomware attack on his nonprofit theater company and the attackers were asking for fifteen hundred dollars in bitcoin and eventually they said you know what we're not gonna pay them. We have the backed up data but they did have this moment of thinking in the scheme of our business. It's not that much money like. Are we talking about people who are shooting for big amounts or you know are they targeting twenty five different places for relatively gettable sums across the security community. It's broadly understood that ransom demands are basically going up. The trend line is pointing upward. But it can vary between in the thousands of dollars like as as a case with with your husband. But if you're getting to a larger corporation you have some people who specialized in this area saying that ransom demands could be ten million twenty million dollars. Well so i mean. Obviously attackers are smart enough to know they're not going to go with to attend with a ten million dollar demand to a school district. That certainly can't pay that in. That would make it an easy decision for them. They're they're trying to find like the right price point as well where they can have some sort of a six rate. Do school districts do hospitals. Do these places tend to pay. It really varies. It depends on what type of data has been encrypted. It depends whether those school districts have backed up their data beforehand which would make sort of rebooting the system much easier but what is almost always true. Is that school very cagey about saying whether they paid. No one wants to say that. They paid off a hacker that they gave someone from a country in the side of the other side of the world. A million bucks get their systems online. It's a very difficult. Pr situation for any organization or school to tiptoe around because it says what your system is rable and that you're willing to pay or that you just were bad cybersecurity. I mean all of the above. And i think one of the sort of broader questions that the entire cyber community is really wrestling with is. Should you pay broadly speaking. Are we incentivizing hackers to keep taking advantage of schools or keep taking advantage of businesses if they keep on paying and i understand that argument completely. It's it's very straightforward point of view on the other hand. If your business is offline for two weeks or a month or if your schools taken off line paying off might be the better option to you if it means basically losing all of your customers or you know having kids go out of school for a month or so. Dave says it's a bit of a vicious cycle vulnerable systems plus a willingness to pay tends to lead to more attacks but the victims are only half of the equation. The other half the perpetrators behind that screen demanding. Bitcoin are part of a criminal industry. That is surprisingly organized. One of the interesting things that cyber security researchers really say is these groups oftentimes act almost as corporate entities. They're very professional. They have partnerships between groups at times they subcontract to specialists within the hacking profession. If they have you know someone who's particularly adept at getting into a system. They'll go to that person to try to launch their attack. So you'd really do have this sort of our in de element almost a within the hacking community when it when it comes to them trying to hone their craft and zero win an exactly the right targets when people are negotiating or even having a conversation with. The attackers are to be trusted. Like you know are. Are you gonna trustees folks if they say like okay. Pay us are fifteen hundred bucks in bitcoin. And actually you're going to get your data back or is that a terrible idea. You would think that criminals are not to be trusted in. Obviously they're they're not But at the end of the day these groups are also playing a long game when it comes to their business and they have as i said a reporter with some of these negotiators that work with businesses and schools. If they don't pay if they don't decryption data after you pay them money. Those negotiators will know for their subsequent clients and they will know to not advise clients in the future to pay. So you had this weird dynamic that develops were. The groups are actually like worried about their sort of like brand in some respects. That's completely fascinating. Yeah it's totally wild thing and one lawyer who works in a lot of these investigations like re recently told me we don't wanna get to the level buber comparing it to customer service. But they're like definitely getting to a point where once you pay up in some cases they're trying to be helpful so that in the future they're known as sort of an honest broker while attacks may be more. Frequent ransomware isn't new like with so many other things cove it just accelerated existing trent so we have just seen a growth in the amount of ransomware with some of these criminal groups that have been long established in countries around the world just gravitating toward an effective tool that they're using so when you talk to cybersecurity researchers who follow this closely attribution is very difficult but they tend to say that the countries in which these types of groups operate our might might be the ones that you tend to think of korea iran china countries in the soviet bloc or central asia countries that may tend to look away when cyber criminal groups within their own borders launch an attack on a us business and do foreign governments step in or they unhelpful. I think it's safe to say that the the reason why a lot of this activity oftentimes stems from those countries is because the government's take a more lax approach some of this hacking particularly if it's sort of geared at the united states the. Us government recently has tried to warn businesses against paying somewhere demands. They basically have looked at those states. In particular places like north korea and iran and they've issued warnings to companies saying. Hey if you're targeted by ransomware think twice about paying anyone who is affiliated with someone who sanctioned from those countries. You could violate sanction rules by actually paying up this ransomware. I was really struck by that. Yeah the treasury department was basically sort of saying. Gee even if you're a victim you might be maybe committing a crime here if you pay up. What was their reasoning. Their i mean. I think goes to that discussion that i was mentioning earlier about how we're creating a market for ransomware essentially and i think it's it makes sense to the. Us government's official policy as we shouldn't pay people on our sanction lists and create this market. That said if a company that employs ten thousand or twenty thousand americans has to choose between paying one of these things or laying people off. I mean that's a much different conversation. Be curious to see whether people in law enforcement federal regulators etcetera might take sort of a case by case approach to actually enforcing that sort of thing. I'm trying to figure out where all of this goes. As we maybe move to a post pandemic world Obviously people are gonna still do lots of stuff online. And that's not something. That's going away. But i wonder if you think we are going to keep seeing this increase in ransomware attacks or if this is maybe a bit of a bubble wrought by the pandemic. I think it's probably safe to assume that it will continue increasing. You will still have these criminal groups that make tens of millions of dollars per year doing this stuff who will continue to innovate continue to look for new ways to go after businesses. Continue to do that. Research and development that we mentioned earlier so. I think it's safe to say that. None of that's going to stop

A Look At The Documentary The Great American Lie

"Edition on Edie. I'm Brian Watt from the pandemic to protest for police reform, systemic inequality has grown into a front and center issue in 2020. Recently released documentary film called The Great American Lie examines the roots of systemic inequality and some of the trauma that comes with it. It comes to us from filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom, who many of us also know as the first partner of California, and it features Bay Area educator Ruby Dee Tai, who has been a public school principal in Oakland. And is now one in San Francisco. I got a chance to talk to both of them late last week as the film was just hitting digital platforms. First, I asked Jennifer Siebel Newsom. What her film is about The film really is about the fact that our country is in a crisis. The American dream is out of reach for a majority of Americans and social immobility in economic inequality is as bad as it was just before the Great Depression. And when you bring Koven 19 into that it's even worse. Ruby. Let me bring you into this conversation. In this film. We see the effects of trauma on an entire community, particularly on a growing population of immigrant Children, newly arrived What is the hardest part about having to fight for opportunities for these young people? Today? The film really highlights where we are in society where we live around how poverty is so really, violence is so real, especially are students who have come from other countries. Their experience. Getting here is it's traumatic in itself, right? And then they move into East Oakland, and they don't really recognize their own trauma. We have a school that's in the centre of East Oakland that is serving families that are in poverty and so with poverty comes experiences that we don't anticipate in everyday life, so the film highlights some of those experiences. Actually, Can we hear a clip from Ruby Dee tie from the film right now? Wei served a very high population of students who are in foster care. A lot of homeless families. My students come with no supplies. No backpack didn't eat. They come with that is in jail. My father was taken from our family and deported last night. Eliska. Lt's on a non of what they bring. And if they have a bad day, and they rolled their eyes then now you take it personally as an adult. I'm trying to imagine what all of that is like When you lay over it. The situation we are in with the pandemic. How challenging is that climate right now. It's extremely challenging, because now we're in not only an economic divide, but it's really brought to surface with the digital divide in our communities and with the fact that students are doing school at home, So when some student you know, may not have a death may not have their own bedroom may not have Internet access. So school districts, especially our San Francisco is rushing out trying To find resource is to get students Chromebooks to get hot spots and encompassed with all of that you have the stress of the parents who could have lost their job may not be getting unemployment because they have come to this country and they're not may not be documented. So they have lost all resource is and so that the stress of that as a parent on top of trying to make sure that your child is Joining that gym call, But maybe you have to go to work or you found another job. So you're not at home and now students, you know if you're 11 or 12 you rather you want to join a zoom or want to play a video game I need. You're still a child. So Our students are even in more needed. Jennifer Siebel Newsom you want in this film, not just to show how tough everything is, but also to provide a sense of hope. Where you finding hope For me. The hope lies in the fact that we see the humanity in each other. We closed the film with this concept that it is incumbent upon herself recognized that if there is somebody suffering or struggling or pour that perhaps that person doesn't have boots or boot straps with which to pull themselves up. And out of poverty. Perhaps that person wasn't born on first dates, but they were actually born outside of the ball park. Therefore, we have to emphasize and recognize that not only we failed that child or that individual, but we failed that entire communities, and I think there's a beautiful national conversation going on right now. It's certainly uncomfortable for a lot of people. It's a conversation about privilege. Ruby detail I I can't resist the chance to ask someone who has been an educator on both sides of the Bay East Oakland. And San Francisco unified about how this conversation sounds in those two different places in our region. You know, the interesting thing about education is it really puts a lot of responsibility on the leaders and I would say while in my time and open unified Think we had four different superintendent in an eight year period, so the conversation is always changing. Unfortunately, I think people and people, especially who get in the work of education, want to do better and want to do better for students who are economically disadvantaged and Students of color. I do believe that on both sides of the bay, especially in our country right now, I think the conversation is at the forefront The racism work that we have to do. As educators that is prevalent in San Francisco Unified that is something that is a district goal and mandate. Every single employee had to complete anti racist training the school year in the kickoff of distance learning, there's this idea that we talked about it a lot. But really, what does that mean? When it comes down to how We fund And how we create resource is for the highest need communities and or schools within a district I challenged. Our superintendent asked themselves and even the community members of district of parents of these districts. Would you send your child to that school? And if the answer is no. Then why does that school exists? Thanks to both of you for talking to us about this. Thanks for having us Thank you.
