But it's all say craft baked goods Home weather that sort of decorative and everything that you would get if you to actually physically go to a coffee shop which obviously especially now a lot of people are not able to do right right so when when we talk about roasters how did you.

How to Introduce Customers to Specialty Coffee
"In order for specialty coffee to land and become exciting and accessible. You have to do that. Make it accessible so We created intentionally a blend that works very well in milk. It is not overly sour is not overly crazy is not overly fruity it is a very balanced and delicious. Cup of coffee that anybody in the world could grab onto. Now you might be in love with coffee and be like. That's not what we should do. We shouldn't share. Just a coffee is balanced in great with the with the world we need to share with them. The most exciting coffee I'm so passionate about coffee. If you do not create a connection point for people who do not care about the nuances of a natural or a Kenyan coffee or an Ethiopian. Coffee. You will never get them to a place where they're open to try those coffees. So what we did is we created something that was just different enough from that dark roasted Pike's place or Major Dickinson's or whatever the case and we made it just a little. Bit, more nuance, and we drew out these flavors and we made milk drinks that tasted unlike anything they had had before just addicting and delicious to drink, and we made it easy for people to try that. Why if they came in and you could tell they were disinterested or afraid to try the coffee, we offer them a first time on us or we said, give it a try. You don't like it. I'll make you anything else you want and you have to be willing to be adaptable. This is all with the pretense that you care enough about the long play that you want your specialty coffee company to. Survive. If you are comfortable with potentially taking a long slow road, you can be ice cold and only offered the basics. Black coffee only super fruity coffee only only light roasts, etc etc.. That can work in there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. But if you want to bring specialty coffee to a place that has never have it had it before you must bring it with grace and care, and you must look through the guests is if everybody is telling you that your coffee isn't good because X, Y and Z. It's okay for you to know that your coffee is good and the guests do not understand yet. What is not okay for you to ignore everybody who comes through your doors and ask for something else it's especially sad if people tell you that they would prefer to come to your shop, but you don't offer something that they love. So my advice to anybody starting especially coffee in a place that has never seen specialty coffee is to start small. meaning. A bunch of safe coffees blended, maybe slightly darker roasted, and then give yourself a couple of banger exciting coffees will happen over time as people will fall in love with you and your group if you give amazing service in a safe atmosphere. If you do that. People will fall in love with you. They will not your coffee's good. They will notice that it's a trusted source of something that is great. They'll come back for the dark. They'll come back for the simple comeback for the bounce, and as that happens day after day after day, you need to show that you are drinking something different than them and you're excited about it do not force it down their throats but you do this and they will respond over time.
Operating with Mission Focus with Evan Hafer
"Today we get to talk with the CEO and founder of an organization that has experienced outrageous hockey stick growth like in the first year they generated over a million dollars and in the second year. They were an eight million dollar top line. Revenue Company and that growth has discontinued but in the midst of all that growth. They haven't lost the reason why they started. They figured out how to scale with Seoul. Evan Hafer is a retired green beret. Who LOVES TO THINGS COFFEE IN AMERICA and it was out of these two passions that he created black rifle coffee company a company that has taken the world of coffee by storm while simultaneously maintaining the mission and values that they started with the mission for black rifle. Coffee is to serve coffee in culture. Two people that love America content is kind of the internal classification definition with that but the overarching term. That people can kind of digest is just culture So to serve coffee and culture to people who Love America. That feels like it's a pretty intentionally worded statements. I'd love to jump into some of those words so let's start with a obviously kind of what you do coffee. Yeah why Coffee Evan? I think you know from my perspective you have to be passionate about your profession and I've been roasting coffee and developing different roasts for close to fifteen years now. And you know I think where it started for me. Not to jump into the The origin story. But yeah I developed a kind of a profound love and then eventually a hobby for coffey back in the late nineties was in Seattle and I was working on accomplishing a degree from the University of Washington and then I was trying to become a green beret and as a young man. I think you know finding coffee and then looking at the culture and what's happening around coffey back. Then it really galvanized this interest. And so when I became a green beret and went on and started deploying. I still had the love for coffee right. It didn't go anywhere. It just changed it become became more about. Where are you drinking coffee? And for me it was finding great coffee and random and dangerous places and ultimately when I decided to get out of government service it was. It was a natural progression automatically. It was kind of a planned exit and exactly where I wanted to take my next evolution in professional development. I love that line. Great coffee in dangerous places. It's amazing we asked a bunch of your team in Manchester amount like what they loved about coffee and it was crazy.

I'm wondering if you have a favorite musician artist or Song Judy. I'm going to start with you. Elvis Presley was really just coming out when I was thirteen and I thought it was pretty. Good Elvis the pelvis so. I liked him but I liked that music. I like rock and roll great any particular song that you recall. Not that I do anymore and Jean. How about you? When I was young I had a radio. And listen to Caja San Francisco and at ten fifteen in the evening Lucky lager dance. Time came on and so I used to listen to lucky lager dance time all the time and I can always remember the theme song that was Cara Mia Sung by Lawrence Milk. Your and that I can always remember that song and I. I'm curious about the lucky lager. Dance time was this exactly about which will the lucky lager was a beer that they just Was Advertising Sponsors of this fifties rock and roll local beer got it and it was more fifties kind of music. Yes it was all fifties rock and roll and I'm wondering about books. Yes I can remember reading. A book called the Adventures Story. About a South American government that was corrupt and this young son of the dictator Saw How his Dad Ruled the country and was really not satisfied with that and political turmoil. In the South South American country and Judy. How about you Hawaii the James Mitchell? Yeah I read that book and then we went and saw the movie and the people that went with us to see the movie Where some friends that? We had down there on her father worked for the movie industry and one of the Quilts that they had in. There was a family quilt. That was in the movie. A- We in the roadshow bleed that everybody has a story to tell and I'm wondering if you have a story from your lives that you'd be willing to share with our listeners. Wow well living in Las Vegas worked out at the Nevada test site. What are the adventures that I had Was on a Bryn tower. Which you say test site explain that to our listeners. Adventists site is where there was a lot of nuclear testing completed a lot of weaponry testing and a lot of reactor testing A lot of the Experiments were weapons-related One of the instance. We had one tower which was fifteen hundred feet tall. It had a little small reactor on it we would take and reactors on tower on the tower and we would place various different samples of medic medications High explosives anything that would be Subject to radioactive. We could radiate on that. We would place the samples on the top of the tower and we would bring the reactor up to it to radiate it whenever the Diagnostics is complete. We will lower the radio the reactor and shut it down. Then we go retrieve our samples Fifteen hundred feet in the air to this day. I know my fingerprints are still upon that tower. It was an open tower. There was just a skeleton. There was no shielding around it or anything but we did have harnesses and safety gear. That prevented us from accidentally falling over. Fifteen hundred feet in the air straight up is a long ways for me. You had to scale this tower. No fortunately we had little elevator. Thank God I had you climbing up there like a monkey. Why did you have to do this on a tower up in the air? What was the reasoning behind? Will they wanted as much open. Air Without any kind of a restriction to eliminate the radiation at all in doing that why there was no restrictions of the radiation flowing through the samples that we replacing up there but it was just out in the open environment. Yes it was so I have the reactor. It's up in the air. It's on a tower. What year was this? I'm thinking about nine hundred sixty seven and you think they're still doing this No Scher the tower's gone and it is removed. Because I'm sure Osha would not approve of something like that at this time. Did you ever run into any aliens while you were out there and area fifty one gene only in our imagination? And did they let you into area fifty one back then. I know I did have a top secret clearance however my signals would not allow me to go in that particular area. Yeah and now. They're they're still trying to get in there thinking there's other stuff going on there the best of your knowledge that they got aliens out there not to my knowledge in Judaism wondering if you have a story that you could share with us from your life.

"Actually a on some of some of these online forms a bunch of SF guys on it to see a lot of the let's call them. Dawn Combat SF ties. Let's say from the eighties and nineties. Just absolutely ragging on the National Guard is pretty thinking. Visit I was working at group headquarters at one point years ago and I believe one point in time we had guys on the ground and east twenty six different countries. Yeah now I don't know what to do to. Groups are doing But for National Guard duty to have these scattered to twenty six countries at one time To include hires companies in the combat locations in Afghanistan Iraq Syria where real. We're working National Guard's pretty busy. Yeah well I mean yeah then. That's the thing too. Is that for some reason? I think there's still A stigma that the national guard guys are just kind of like. Shall we know one week in a month and Kinda just training and then like aren't you know and I think that's a weird way to put it like when I when I tell you I was telling somebody Who's telling I was telling somebody like? Oh they were asking me about me going. Sf Tom's house. But I I you know I'll be with nineteenth group in there like that and I was like all woods like in like six different states. Actually but it's the national guard one and they're like oh so you're not really going. Sf then right now like what misinformation going on. So if you're talking if you're talking to somebody on the civilian side naty they. There's no reason for somebody on the civilian side to understand that All they know is national guards one weekend a month two weeks a year right the all that you can be in the National Guard. You might that the slogan Yeah the one week at the most two year stereotype there forever. Certainly be people say while. Yeah you're not actually doing it not really going. Sf I don't know I haven't I haven't seen a national key course yet. So so the National Guard launches at one two weeks year. To course I'd say it's I'd say it's writing the application well s s fabs come in the National Guard. One of these days put on my. I put on my arm. You can't just like every other green beret. One time I did deliver on one. Yeah exactly now I you know and and the thing was Susan. Well you were active as well you know. So it's not like you didn't get to see both sides of the spectrum so I was active out of a four the YEP and I and not to shoot them Fort Louis but I would much rather live in slow than Fort Louis. So relation green. I'm talking Shit. I've never even been no. I honestly think I mean we talked about this. I think that you know God willing I get through the Q. And everything and knock everything out and then I mean it's looking either like Salt Lake Denver Austin for me so I'm partial to you. John well I mean I'll be with you. I'LL BE WITH UTAH. So Yeah I you know how so if you were talking to anyone right now about giving advice for them going selection. What would you say advice? Go into selection anthony. The guard side definitely looking to look at the nineteenth or twentieth group recruiters factual recruiters unit. And have them? Put you in touch with the guys that are running at the SF R. E.

You want to go to you can split train and go to an SF RA. Typically a three or four days where.

But if you're not mentally prepared for it can be able to deal with when the cadre is saying mean things to you. Only names and You know waking you up at two more and through the rink I think that's what really get the one guy not be care or what they're signing up to do the research on it and that too is that it's a lot of people I won't say fragile minded. I guess but a lot of people. They've just never had that done to them ever before. And you know we talked last time a little bit about athletes. You know you guys who are very much been praised their whole life in the first time they have any adversity thrown at them. They Kinda just crumble. Yeah I think I think a lot of guys. They have this This idea that they're a little bit a little bit Super. She go like well. It was mentally tough for you. Maybe but it's not going to be tough for me. It is going to be talked to you because that's the way it's designed right. They don't even if you have a high mental rush hall. They're still gonNA they get mentally tough for you push. That's that's the purpose of your bitch yelled at noon day. We have seen so it'd be fine. I just think it's hilarious. I you know and I I do my best to try to talk to people about it. It's just I honestly I think. Sas Ancor says kind of one of those things that you can talk all day about it but until you go through it you don't really understand it at all so it's like even asking me you know I'm kind of like I'm just waiting for my own experience. Yeah Yeah I I. I have so many guys especially when they found out you were coming on there like Oh my God like you know. I think so. Many people are curious about the National Guard. Sf But I think the term nationalguard gives them such a turn off about it. Plenty.

"You when you start taking on employees to you're taking on a lot of responsibility and a lot of liability for making sure that somebody else has steady paycheck in his making their livelihood. So I would. I would love to get to that point with frontier where I can hire you. Know half dozen or a dozen employees and provide a really really good enjoyable job for them So that's always striving for but until then my wife and I are literally grinding out.

A lot of guys who are trying to do the Oh eighteen x ray route coming up. How are you Are Getting through the Times where you're away right now. Because a lot of people know you know you're a eighteen Delta medic for SF and your nineteenth group and you're away legitimately away A few times a year. So how are you guys transitioned with that? Yes I'm actually I'M IN UTAH. Right now. I just landed here some couple of weeks. Back into Fort Bragg the center of the universe So I'm gone. A what part of it is just keeping your special forces. All occasions current takes a lot of time All over all of our research of the exact same you have to do on active duty side except your time in the National Guard so you need to make time to do that But anyways yeah on the road right now and Jams mccomb having to run the entire shows. She's there roasting. She's processing orders backing stuff sitting packages Top of that. She also has a real job that she has to go to and she has to get the kid out of school. Get TO SWIM. Practice across country practice She knows she's got to run the household so I guess the National Guard. Yeah one reason about two weeks year not so much on especially for society so want a soldier. He has to be dedicated to paying off five stain proficient fishing job. But you've got to have the support system on the back end. That is to be able to bake all that a reality You know if I if I didn't have to help run crunchier coffee on even now. I guess I guess we wouldn't have frontier coffee orders with this go on bill every time that I went. Tdy At training and stuff So I absolutely loved the in the nights national guard. nineteenth group. I've met some of those. Most phenomenal soldiers had purpose watching. What here at Nineteen through But it's it certainly WANNA work to make it make it successful So I think I think a lot of guys don't realize what they're biting off when they volunteer to come out for the R. E. or this of course is readiness evaluation Or with your selection and make it into the Q. Course something you know. It's a. It's a part time paycheck for very much a fulltime job. Y You know it's I mean they're I mean. Obviously there's a ton of similarities between active and the NGS F- But I have my big thing was that you know a lot of times I get asked like why don't you just go back and sign another active contract and go back and do it that way and I find that the National Guard? Sf is such a unique opportunity to hidden. Jim Actually and I don't even mind talking about it because I don't think people are GonNa believe me either way So I'm I'm serious. I. I've told people that go. I really this is my favorite thing that people tell me when I talk about it. They're like well. I really WANNA go get six years active and then switched to national guard. Sf roaming okay. Well if you get the cue go do. That's great you know sure But there's so many people who are national guard. Sf THAT ARE STILL GONE. Nine months out of the year right. And so I. I'm just like Kinda I think you said on the last episode is that you can kind of get it kind of making. Its own active duty. But just choose where you live. Yes so there's plenty of guys who are you know? They're they're guard bores.

Maybe my her more like thinking like it might hurt me more looking back and thinking about how I could have saved my brother but when I think about that I always just think it's kind of selfish because Y- you know and he. He was mentally ill but he said over and over again that he didn't WanNa be here. Like you said it routinely on thinking to myself like if you know if I look back and say like Oh man. I love to have helped him. Every day was really hard for him. Every day was really tough struggle. And I don't have any. I don't have any comparison at all to. I don't have any reference to compare that it to anything because I I feel really good every day every day You know everyday feels great so I don't know I don't know what he felt. They certainly didn't feel the way that I feel and I have friends and some other people that Deal with similar things and some of them figure out a way to manage it. You know they figure out a way to manage it and And then they find stuff to look forward to As often as they can so they can be excited and be happy. I do think for some people like being happy as a hard thing like figure out I I it's hard for everybody And then I also think maybe there's some weird interpretations of being happy. I think maybe people have unrealistic mystic views of being happy like they think they're going to be happier like when something big happens like. I'm going to be happier when I go on that trip to Hawaii would be happier when and I have observed happier when I benchpress weight. Or whatever. And if you're not happy right now then you're probably not gonNA be any happier once you get to that goal and a lot of heat talked about today about some of those people on a TV show And then he also talked about working next next to some high level people and some people that were very successful And he mentioned working with people that are really successful that make a lot of money. That still have time for their family. Those are people that have deep roots and a good understanding of what the what the most important things are to them and how they can stay happy because they recognize that yes they could probably get any woman that they want but they recognize. That's not smart because they're married and because they have you you know other obligations these other things that they agreed to that They're being faithful towards and they're recognizing like well I might as well just stay rate here And build on this vertical because this makes me really happy I love hanging out with my daughter. I love hanging out with my kids. I love going this kid's birthday party or whatever it is and yes. Maybe there ars some other things that you'd like to do But I think that a lot of times we're just thinking the other next thing is going to bring us so much happiness and a little bit of a trick you can even just look as you don't have to look any further than in your food.

The smartest way to hire consumer reports recently outlined wind what most of us already knew that the fees being charged by cable companies are one rate in the adds another on the final bill you know it's similar to many travel aval websites which advertise come on nightly roommate but then. Ding you later with hidden resort fees and taxes so when I wrote an article about it this week for USA Today Day I asked Jonathan Schwab as the senior policy counsel for consumer reports what we could do about those fees and he told me there was only one option cut the cord and the fees would go away. I have some words of advice as well. Check your cable bill right now because when I took a look doc my bill was a steady in reasonable one hundred eight dollars and ninety one cents monthly until this month when it jumped to da Da da a hundred hundred and fifty four dollars a whopping five hundred and fifty two dollar yearly increase frontier communications my Los Angeles provider jacked up the Combo Internet. TV Rate from seventy five to ninety stopped offering HBO for Free Which Ballooned Up to twenty dollars and threw in a nice broadcast TV of twelve bucks to watch local channels and taxes went up to really when I called frontier complain they pretty much refused to budge saying that I had a promo rate that no longer was valid so basically I two choices cancel service altogether and re sign up under my wife's name which would now oh get me to a promotional one hundred thirty dollars monthly for what we had or disconnect altogether so I picked up a fifty dollar. You're watching your Internet service rate from frontiers. La rival spectrum and I have a router arriving hopefully today fees spectrum itself is notorious for digging us with extras like the ten dollar self installation fee they are charging me to plug in a router and to call them confirm that I indeed have service. The alternative is fifty dollars to have a technician. Come to the house and do the work and for cable subscribers. It's good to know that they do that. Twelve dollar monthly broadcast as well and it's growing at thirteen dollars and fifty cents monthly later this month I signed up for the one year plan so hopefully I got fifty dollars a month for that one year. I'll also be adding youtube. TV The Cable Alternative Service to replace the cable channels this this is fifty dollars monthly which is pretty hefty but the wife will kill me if I can't get her news channels and PBS which is coming to YouTube td later this year so so in the end. I'm going to be paying one hundred dollars monthly instead of one hundred and eight dollars monthly which really isn't much of a savings at all but I'm not about to give frontier the satisfaction this faction of nearly six hundred dollars hard in dollars every year for no good reason read your cable bills everybody cutting the cord fans no. I could've skipped up YouTube TV or slaying or playstation Vue or who live TV and just bought an antenna the pickup local channels in really saved but if you're a fan of cable able channels like FX AMC HGTV CNN ESPN and on and on you got to pay the Piper with one of the cable TV alternative services I I could live without them and just watch regular Youtube Netflix Amazon and be the happiest guy in town but I live alone.

Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter. The smartest way to hire Samsung has just released the most expensive smartphone to date nearly two thousand dollars. The Samsung fold finally coming out. Our BEG got his hands on it. He's going to tell us all about so two thousand nearly two thousand dollars for a very large eventual phone worth it. It's hard to say any phone. It's worth nearly two thousand dollars. you know I can't recommended at that price. you're paying. You're you're really looking at an early early. adopter who has a fair amount of money who wants to be the first on the block with something and and it's GonNa pay for that privilege and with that take on the risk of aversion point one. We call version point one. Oh but it's really Samsung second try at this because they were gonNA launch it back in April and of course they were screen issues and other problems that emerged and they had to delay the launch until until now. Why don't you tell people why they'd even be interested in fault well. The idea is that you you have this thing. It's a it's a kind of a Chunky Candy Bar Style phone that you can keep in your pocket rocket like you do any other phone you you like we carry around but you then put out of your pocket and there's a screen on the outside again. It's it's a Nick Candy Bar phone but then you can unfold it and suddenly you have a small tablet with a screen that is seven point three inches lot more real estate than you get even on one of these very large tablet size phones which which have become very common you get all let extra screen real estate so the idea you can have a small talbot but you really carrying around a phone feel like there's a tablet in your pocket or a phone. No no it shall like a phone I mean that's the good news it's it's a bit chunky ways a little more than nine ounces so it's not the latest phone around but it didn't bother me to have it in my pocket. you know I had a bigger objection. Frankly that the price and the actual product itself although the product is not perfect you know and there are times. When you're you know I'm I'm commute on a bus. I'm browsing the web and watching video and it's nice to be able to do that on a screen. That's that's pretty big seven point three inches franchise well. That's the big question you know. They had to postpone the launch again because of issues with with the I attempted this I didn't have any break it. Nothing broke on my watch. I'm happy to report when you open the when you unfold like a paperback and you've got this screen feels a little plastic and you actually see this crease in the middle of the screen where the thing full doesn't bother me that much you kind of get used to it pretty quickly. Samsung claims it has done all the repairs. That will make this thing adorable. I'd I D- Having said that the first thing you see when you actually open the box and then on boxes care instruction sheet with all kinds of warnings don't put too much pressure sure on the on the screen you know you know watch out for for dust and debris and all these things so Samsung is being very cautious here here and it makes you wonder. How fragile is this thing but I'm happy to report in my several days of having one it did not break. We'll see what happens. The phone is available now. Correct yet is available now in the US it actually launched in South Korean some other places before it came out here in the US who asks but is now available in the US. You can get it at eighteen. You can get an unlocked version at best buy but again you're GONNA pay nineteen hundred eighty bucks for it. Already will good luck phone buyers. I'm Jefferson Graham.

The smartest way to hire apple has revamped its long maligned apple maps APP in resolve is way better experience. Let me tell you all about it. On today's edition of Talking Tech. I'm Jefferson Graham. Let's speaking with the positives apples in a different business than Google and thus is less eager to grab at your personal information use Google maps and Google well has the inside track to following your every move even if the APP is closed apple does offer personalized data but it gets it from the device ice not the cloud and thus only uses random identifiers to get to it not your apply d. This is a big deal now. My favorite feature sure in apple maps is way better spoken directions instead of being told that turn left at thousand feet. I get turn at the next light. This is way less confusing to some of US behind the wheel. Now the maps update looks better with more transit and ride share information. That's great but while apple offers as you rideshare possibilities from just Uber Google has uber and lift Google offers bike routes as well which apple doesn't do for ninety five percent percent on my test drive around Los Angeles Apple maps was right on sending me streets in routes that made sense with plenty of time to make my turns until it didn't I was directed to make a slight right on a busy street when in fact it was a hard real right. Turn this set me down the street. I didn't need to be on on and then I was crossing through town on side roads. That just didn't make sense. I cannot prove that this route took longer than it would have with Google but gosh it it sure felt that way. I do like the privacy features of apple maps and I'm willing to give it another shot listeners. What do you think apple maps Google legal or ways? Let's talk about twitter at Jefferson Graham.

Eero lowers prices for wifi home assist

Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire so we're back in Seattle with Nick Weaver Birds Founder and CEO of Bureau. which is the device that helps you get better? Wifi in the home nick. Tell everybody about the new products yeah. We're really excited about it. It's the most affordable all euro system today it start shipping today and it starts at only two hundred forty nine dollars for a set of three so it's half the price of our current euro pro system awesome. Tell folks who don't know the quick little story about what the euro device will do. Everybody's got Wi fi and they've got dead spots in the home your device we'll do what for them yes so eros this really as simple whole-home. Wi Fi system so in today's world when you're connecting devices all over your home you might have a an echo in office and fire fire TV in the living room ring camera outside your door the days of having one router just in one part of your house or over it's not going to provide the type of coverage and reliability and performance that you need to connect all these devices make sure you've seamless connectivity in every room in the home and so what we pioneered. Eero was the concept of Mesh System so instead of one unit. You can have multiple for euro. You can buy single units. You can buy systems uh-huh that are sets of three and you don't need to stop there. You can keep adding units to make sure you're able to tailor a system that covers every room of your house or even the backyard so basically many routers yeah every euro unit can be both a router or A. Mesh axis at this point where you just plug it into power or it can be a wired access point if you have Ethernet in in your home and what's great is you set them up with the APP and and they self configure so you don't need to be. It whiz or or or have a you know a degree in networking to understand how the products work you just set them up the APP takes care of it. It's super seamless and anyone can do it. Okay and in a perfect world should have three euros in the home or the at the home is now changing. Do you see a day where we're supposed to have six nine. I'm thinking well the reason our our systems are sets of three is that covers the a typical home in in in the US and so you know a good rule of thumb. Is You want to have one unit per every call it thousand the two thousand square feet it all depends on home construction and so what we've found with three is you can cover typical home and it's really easy to add on Moore If if you've got a bigger a bigger place what's GonNa be what's going to happen. Is You know over the years you're gonNA start seeing more and more devices prices in more places in your home so whether that's sensors in your basement to look for water or cameras outside your home or four speakers for the you know for the backyard our connectivity demands are just. GonNa keep increasing and so over the years what we'll see is likely people adding more and more or euros to be able to expand coverage more places. How many are in your home. I live in San Francisco so I've got three. That's more than adequate for for our Condo but you know I've got friends and family with five six ten Eros in some of their homes all right nick weaver here in Seattle at the Amazon event.

It's all about Catalina highland. That's off the coast of Los Angeles. It's one of my favorite places in the world and the people in Catalina are pretty excited about this exposure. I mean it's not just the name it's every time you turn on your computer. You're looking at a picture of Catalina unless you change it well. I recently had a chat with Greg Bombard. He is the president of the Catalina Adalina express the bolt line that takes people from Los Angeles to Catalina. He's excited. Listen in on our conversation. You know when it goes out like picked this to so. Many people is going to be an island that a lot of people don't even know about. I'm sure that it helped the other locations. They picked this year so you know lobby and the earlier ones It's gotTa be good for the island. It's gotTa be good for you know marketing and and I just believe that Catalina is kind of unique and mysterious anyway so I think people once they find out about it it'll get him to take a look now. How many people ride your boat on a daily or weekly or monthly basis annually. Eh move about a little over a million million two varies between net that mark will be a little bit office year due to the rains that we had early on on but that's something southern California needed in a real bad way and especially island. It cleaned up the drought situation so now we've got good water We've got got good management team in Edison working with that and I don't think we'll see that again right away and I hope we're in a little bit different. climate anyway that it will get our normal you know ten to twelve inches a year that keeps you. Allen Really Green and an exciting place to come in you know whether you're hiker or a biker or you know just enjoy the island itself and taking an tours or any of those types of things the island Armand is really different in the springtime it really gets Lushan and the colors come out and it's kind of exciting and then for summer the water warms up and you know it's it's a great place to dive and and a lot of other sports. Let's see so matt. They sell about Gosh. I think it's a under twenty million new computers every year and who knows how many people will upgrade their software so can you handle can you could you handle hypothetically two million people bowl on the boat sure sure no say if they came our way because the biggest crowd we have is July July and August when they're you know when the kids are out of school and when people are a little bit of a vacation but you know the whole rest of the year we've got excess eating and we'd love to see the island get a little bit stronger in the shoulder marks meaning the fall and the spring lots of room and in the winter. It's still a great place and in southern California is to me one of the best climates there is in the world so we're never really you know cold or a rougher any that we a little wind here and there but average just gets you know it's just a little different during that period but exciting. NCR people who come and go from it. How big of percentage hike do you think you'll get. What kind of boost do you think you'll get from the from the Max offer anything. It's five percent one percent centene twenty now we. I guess we'd all love to think it's going to be five percent or ten or twenty but really hard for me to say We're just open the best and and I think it's unique situation that it's not something you know have had an opportunity to do in the past after this could be very unique very different and it'll be interesting.

Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire so in an era when so many companies competing for your subscription dollar what you'd think would you pay five dollars for just a handful of shows whereas apple caused them stories to believe in so it's a the subject. I've been pondering about all week since the apple event when apple announced the pricing for Apple TV just five dollars yet. There's only eight shows in one documentary humanity at launch on November. I I'm Jefferson Graham. You're listening to talking tech. Apple's move is bold especially considering that the arcade gaming service which is also five dollars monthly and launching this Thursday boasts of a hundred games now apple. TV isn't just five dollars. It's actually free free for anybody for one year who buys a new IPHONE IPAD or Macintosh computer but compared to Netflix and its bulk of original shows Apples Cup board is really bear but how about to the other services. I mean apple. Yes it has the lowest price of any of the premium subscription services but but only by a dollar. CBS All access and who both started six dollars for the ad supported services in terms of bulk CBS has its entire primetime lineup it talks thousands of episodes of TV shows including all these like I love Lucy and cheers but in the original apartment isn't actually that far off from apple it promotes just seven series on its website they include the good fight to New Star Trek series a remake of the twilight zone in the acclaimed why Women Kill Hulu on the other hand has way more with most of the primetime offerings of NBC ABC and Fox and it lists nearly sixty original series movies documentaries humanities including the emmy winning the handmaid's tale along with the library of older movies and TV series as well for two dollars more than Apple TV plus. You can get Disney plus lunching November twelfth and it's complete library of classics along with new series that include the Mandalay Rian based on star wars movies and updated the high school all musical franchise the return of the Disney Channel Classic lizzy McGuire in a live action remake of the nineteen fifty five film. The lady and the TRAMP as you go up the pricing escalator. Netflix is next starting at nine dollars monthly or thirteen or sixteen dollars if you WANNA watch and four K. and on more screens and Amazon prime video works out to about ten dollars a month or one hundred and twenty dollars yearly it's package with the prime shipping and entertainment service service again. Netflix and Amazon offered thousands of shows mostly library movies and TV programs through the years along with less than one hundred original TV series can can apple survive with just a handful even if they have stars like Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon in the lead.

Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire. Hey everyone I am in Hawaii this week.

If you haven't caught any my photo walks the episodes on youtube they're all about going to great places and where to find the best photo spots along with tips on how to get the best shots so right now. I'm on the island of a Wa who in Hawaii. I came here to photograph my friend's wedding and have been exploring the island for three days. How do I figure out the best parts in town photograph. When all I've done is parachute in research research. I look at the websites blogs google images postcards brochures in a talk to everybody I can that ranges from the local lifeguard who he usually knows more than anyone else in a beach community to my new found friends on a hike because we're all after the same thing. INSTA- worthy shots here in Hawaii that means killer morning sunrise and sunset shots massive waves surfers in the local scene on the islands. Nothing beats getting up really early like I really really early to be ready to watch the sun pop out out of the water seemingly and spread massive colors all over the place. That's that's something I just don't see back in California. I'm used to seeing the sunset not the sunrise over the water. It's a big kick now. This photo walks episode which is being edited it as we speak is actually more of a road trip as you have to drive from place to place to get to the best spots on the island of Awadh who I skipped downtown Honolulu all together just focus on the other side of town because that's where most of the great shots are beyond some waves and resorts which of course you'd find in Waikiki. The video should be posted within about two weeks. If you're anxious just hit me up on twitter for an update. I'm at Jefferson Graham same monicker that you could find for my youtube channel.

Those $#@!% hidden travel website fees
"Hiring isn't easy but there is one place you can go where hiring is simple in smart that place is ziprecruiter where growing businesses connect to qualified candidates candidates try it for free at Ziprecruiter. Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire so how how did a hotel room offers one hundred thirty seven dollars a night for two nights turn into three hundred and seventy three dollars and thirty eight cents. You guessed it hidden fees vs to travel. Websites are notorious for hooking you in with great offers only to see them. Balloon is something you didn't agree to in the first place which I'm guessing is because they just think you'll just say oh. I can't take it anymore and you'll surrender while in the interest of saving aggravation and time and perhaps becoming more savvy traveler. Here's some tips for what to look for when you visit these top travel sites. I'm Jefferson Graham. You're listening to talking tech. Let's begin with hot wire. You all know hot wire. It's site picks up unused hotel room inventory and sells it at a promise discount without telling you the exact name of the property before you book so I found a two nights stated downtown hotel in Seattle in one hundred and thirty seven dollars a night but then it grew to 373 because as hot wire tacked on ninety five dollars and thirty eight cents tax recovery and fee surcharge the explanation quote we retain our service fees fees as compensation in servicing your travel reservation and that's fine. If you really really really save money not here expedia this this is the dominant site for airline tickets and hotel rooms. It also owns hotels DOT COM hotwired travelocity enter vago but it does and it doesn't appear to tack on fees but you really need to be on your toes. When you're booking for instance. I found a hotel in New York City for one hundred nineteen dollars a night two nights plus twenty one dollars in nine cents for taxes that you come to two hundred and fifty nine dollars by my estimations but expedient checkout put us at two hundred eighty dollars what we missed it. I we were supposed to multiply both the roommate and the taxes by to also be on the lookout for great airline Fares on expedient but do note the airport listed. I I try to book a flight to Seattle from Los Angeles International Airport to quote was a hundred and sixty nine nine dollars. Round trip sat at unbelievable versus the average of three hundred dollars and up on the other airlines again this is from lax but once I clicked on enough buttons to get to the cart art the flight actually originated from Ontario airport some sixty miles away from my home not airbnb the Discount Hotel Hotel alternative got a well-deserved reputation for offering lower priced overnight stays in the ire of the hotel industry but as far as I'm concerned. It's never cheaper on Airbnb because the fees that's how a ninety six dollar townhouse in San Diego for two nights got to three hundred and eight dollars dollars. One third of the cost was fees fifty eight dollars for cleaning thirty two dollars. I service and twenty six dollars in taxes of the service.

Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire the apple event was all about selling hugh new iphones that sound remarkably similar to last year's models only they have more power better battery and improve camera but you've heard that all before a zillion times that's the big news as far as I was concerned came early in the event and it was all about apple. TV plus the new entertainment service it is going to launch on November first and will cost five dollars monthly and it will only have nine shows to present to you launch day nine. How many do you expect that Netflix Amazon have between between them like a thousand or more apple went out and hired some big guns to make programs names like Steven Spielberg over Winfrey Reese Witherspoon and others in. I know those names but to the kids that's one of the reasons I've been down on the prospects for TV plus that in that Apple's joining netflix Amazon prime video CBS CBS all access Hulu and so many others who are attempting to get your subscription dollar that I have feared a subscription overload at a certain point people will just say enough but at five dollars it's a different story that in every person who buys an IPHONE IPAD computer will get a year's service for free free. Dan Ives analyst. I respect thinks apple will have a one hundred million subscribers within three years. They got fifty million with apple music even though is just a clone of spotify by one hundred million with a service costing half the price of Apple Music is in out of the question but nine shows well apple did note five others is that will be added to the lineup after launch and really when you think about it if apple has even one great show. Does it matter how many total it has. I know I pay five dollars a month to see a show. I loved with Netflix. It's there's usually one or two shows during a month. I actually want to see and if I ruled the world I would cut out seventy. Five percent of the Netflix content off. The menu is just too confusing finding what to watch as those new phones well. They looked awfully similar to last year's model it'll but give me a third camera lands and I'm excited. How about you. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I use mine every day all day and I figured the cost for about a thousand dollar. Phone will come to just about three dollars a day. Give or take a few cents imagine living without it. A laptop. Stop is GonNa cost you anywhere. From eight hundred dollars to fifteen hundred dollars did oh for a desktop and you can't drag them around with the same ease. A tablet is relatively cheap as slowest three hundred dollars or so or four hundred fifty nine dollars if you add it cell service but while you could certainly make phone calls surf the net and do video chat chat well. It's not as convenient for taking photos on an IPAD. You could pay for stuff with Apple. Pay This way but would yeah. I don't think so a TV is the best bargain of the mall when it comes to consumer electronics with forty three inch models now selling under three hundred dollars and you can view your pictures on these sets and if you're really savvy do video chat but let's face it.

Then why are musicians still complaining about seeing such little money from digital at what what point do musicians finally get to join the party. I'm Jefferson Graham. This is talking tech. Let me try to provide some answers now. Streaming music paying for services. This is like spotify Apple Music Amazon prime generated four point three billion dollars in the first half of two thousand nineteen or eighty percent of the industry's total tally of five point four billion dollars. This is per a new report by the Recording Industry Association of America. Which about twenty years ago used to report sales sales of twenty billion dollars? Now remember digital downloads. They were going to be the savior of the industry and replace. CDs people still buy them but but barely generating four hundred and sixty two million dollars so far this year compared to seven hundred sixty five million at this point two years ago now. That's still better than CDs. Yes people are still buying CDs worth nearly two hundred and fifty million dollars this year so far.
