Apples MacBooks have finally gotten rid of the butterfly keyboard
"Apple's butterfly keyboard which endured endless shots from fans and critics like finally gone. Welcome to the age of the magic keyboard. I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with me. Is One of the foremost experts laptops our own. Dan Ackerman welcomed in Roger. Apple just released. Thirteen inch MAC pro which comes with one of its new magic keyboards that essentially wipes out the butterfly keyboard from its lineup right. How are you feeling about that you know? This was the last butterfly keyboard that was left. Was it was one of the reasons why that thirteen inch pro? A little bit outdated compared to the rest of the math book line. They updated the fifteen inch last year. And turn it into a sixteen inch and that was the first time they said all right this keyboard. No more we're going to call it the magic keyboard and it's a little different than it's the same but it's better you like it and we did. Then they finally did the same thing for the macbook air back in March very recently so and they say hey we got some more bad news coming up though. That's got be the thirty. The one laptop left a thirteen inch bro. So that you know there are a couple of things about it that we're feeling a little dated. The keyboard was one of them and now everybody has done magic keyboard. It's interesting they used that branding on the ipad keyboard also and also understand keyboard. You get with your. I'm AC. Let's back things up a little bit and let's talk a bit about the butterfly keyboard. What was so controversial about all the problems? They snuck that butterfly keyboard in with a new product. Five years ago it was the twelve inch Mac but not air not pro just MAC book they had not had a product with just that name at a longtime although they used to and one of the things that made that twelve inch. Mac Book which I loved so small and portable was over putting the super flat keyboard in and it's not going to have a Z shaped scissors switch under the key like so many other laptops it's GonNa have a butterfly which is basically the four corners and the sensor would indicate when a key was depressed so they could make it super slim. Did it in there? The problem was it was so slim. It didn't really feel like you were typing it all. It didn't have that right. Feel at also people immediately started getting the key stuck because there was so little space underneath them any little bit a dust debris would get in there so immediately. There were a lot of problems with it. And what apple did was they said. Oh that's great. We're going to put these in everything.

Apple Arcade is now available
"Eight thirty one apples attempted distressed red disrupt the gaming industry as we know it debuts today apple arcade will be available across all devices for just about five Bucks a month but is it a game platform a subscription service or a game store Dan Ackerman has seen its senior managing editor for computers and gaming and he's taken apple arcade for a spin he joins us live this morning on the KCBS ring central news line so Dan what is it. it's a way for apple to take control of some of the action that's happening that mobile game space you go to the apps store now people download a lot of free games you know candy crush style games they want you to pay a little extra to get extra lines the bonuses or watch a bunch of ad so they're saying you know what give us five dollars a month will pick a hundred awesome games and give you like Netflix style unlimited access to and just trust us we're gonna curate this for you did talk a little bit if you will about the market here in your you've you get on a bart train or sit in airports have boarding lives use hill a lot of people playing games on their mobile devices is it as big as it looks. it is especially because they get you one for free they call this the freemium where the pay to play model the game three don't worry about it and then as soon as you start playing but if you want to go to the next level it's the it's two dollars a five dollars or by a hundred starts for twenty dollars and that's how they make the money from these wells who currently end up spending a lot more than they think through these micro transactions the web application works is they say don't worry about that don't worry about see ads or pop ups or anything just we'll take care of it all all the games there's no extra fees and you can download them and that way Dan is and also another of the big differences here is the fact that you can play these games on different screens but it's still basically the same experience. it's interesting because apple control so much of that ecosystem that walled garden of these games are going to work on your iPhone I started today with I was thirteen look at later to my thought I had for that update comes out and then a little bit later on Max and IMAX your math books and even apple TV if you have that hook up your big screen TV and you can use Xbox. rollers with so it's it's very transportable which is a concept I see a lot of companies moving into electronical stadium that's coming out that's roughly similar in that way and roll these divisive fight pause the game on my iPhone and pick it up later on the apple TV or the I. pad is all supposed to be seamless. that's exactly right all your progress is saved in the cloud which is of the gamers have been you know wanting for for decades in over the last five to six years we've got that a lot of game platforms so that's almost like table stakes now did to get into this what's the likelihood that this sort of situation the sort of platform program whatever you wanna call it will draw in more people who aren't typically game players. the thing you could do to try and people who sort of dabble in apple games your iPhone games we don't really get too involved or or just try it once they don't like it is I think curated for you to discover ability problem where there's so many games and apps out there for your phone and ninety nine percent of them were junkie so apple is saying much like Netflix does when they decide which shows and movies to produce and put on their service or HBO they're saying we're going to discover it for you and just give you the best of the best so you don't have to waste your time going through all this

Sometimes you need to call in big tech from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Ali would. You're on marketplace tech, we've been covering how technology helps us adapt to climate change in our series. How we survive to start with you have to understand the problem and create smart solutions? That's the job of the Chesapeake conservancy, a nonprofit organisation that uses technology to recommend conservation techniques for the Chesapeake Bay and a lot of it comes down to the resolution of the data. Jeff Allenby is director of conservation technology at the Chesapeake conservancy. Now, one thing to know is that the Chesapeake Bay watershed is huge. It's sixty four thousand square miles, spanning six eastern US states and the organization mapped the whole area down to the meter the data set. That'd be created for the Chesapeake of that one, meter resolution was instill is one of the biggest high resolution they uncovered data sets ever created in the world. It took Allenby's team eighteen months and more than. Million dollars to manually process that data as in people having to identify things like the characteristics of a tree or label a house, a house. Then they use the data to advise towns on what to prioritize, whether it's planting trees or restoring wetlands or buying land to conserve and once word got out lots of other nonprofits like around the Great Lakes, wanted to do the same thing with map data. Most don't have the time or the money, but big tech companies do budget simply can't be a barrier to people accessing technology, Lucas Joppa leads Microsoft's AI for earth program, which lends the company's computing power and machine. Learning capabilities to organizations trying to tackle climate solutions the program worked with the Chesapeake conservancy to scale up their approach to land mapping to a much bigger area and faster. We wanted to do that, for the entire United States over ten trillion pixels and it can't take a year and a half to do it. Because if it does you're going to be out of date by the time. You're done right. The company awards grants. Let's organizations and scientists use its cloud computing resources and loans out data scientists to various climate related projects, Joppa, says right now AI for earth isn't meant to be a money maker, but he says tech companies have a responsibility to be part of climate solutions beyond their own in house efforts. We've gotta make sure that we have our own house in order. But then we do have to be proactive in going out and, and ensuring that our products are deployed in ways that empower people to amplify their sustainability impact. And there's business value for Microsoft, and being there, first, where a platform company, and we would prefer to be the platform of choice for everybody. Building technology inspired solutions to environmental challenges for Jeff Allenby at the Chesapeake conservancy, the real value comes and being able to know what's working, and what's not so you know what to conserve and what to let go. So from the side of it, it really allows you to, to understand the context. Of kind of any given action. And it allows you to understand the alternatives. If that action can't go forward and Allenby says those decisions have to be made quickly because there isn't any time to waste. And now I am related links. You can see some of the super detailed maps that the Chesapeake conservancy created and a little more detail about those projects at our website marketplace tech dot org. Thanks, Dan Ackerman, from the water main project at American public media for turning that into a super cool story. And we've got linked to more information about some of the grants that the Microsoft AI for earth project has given out last month in announced five hundred thousand dollars for new grants that will actually be distributed by the Leonardo DiCaprio foundation. And we know that climate intelligence is the first place to start with a lot of these adaptation efforts. So there's a lot more news on that front, all the time earlier this month AT and T shared, the data that it's been using to evaluate the risks to its facilities, and make them more resilient to extreme weather. These data sets were developed by the department of energy's, Argonne National Laboratory, and AT and T made them all available to the public. The company also started a climate resiliency community challenged, so that universities can work with towns in southeastern. States to develop solutions and risk analysis based on that data and just last week in an attempt to get everybody looking at the same peer review trustworthy data the World Meteorological Organization launched the WMO catalog for climate data there. Eighteen data sets in there, so far and the organization hopes more will be added soon, the Wm oh, by the way, I also just learned is basically, the in house, weather, and climate agency of the United Nations. Another fun fact last week, the WMO elected Gerhard Adrian of Germany, as its new president for four year term. And I mentioned this because he beat out our guy.

And how often are those like the actually useful, you definitely have the more often than the modern equivalent of spam for many years in the early to mid two thousand Email was practically useless, because it was all spam and Julie figuring out affect blocking mechanisms and then the profit motive went out of it right now, the profit motive is there in robocalls, and until they come up with a way of removing that profit motive by. Blocking or filtering, most of them, they're gonna continue. Yeah, I found that like, because of all these fam- calls I almost never pick up my phone anymore because they've done a really good way a trick where they make the phone number look like it's from your. The first three digits are yours as oh, maybe that's like somebody in my family. Nope. Nother robot got him so. Yeah, this is actually the number one complaint from the FCC. They get like hundreds of thousands of shirts year on this, obviously, phone makers are taking action to apple announced that WW DC that there would be a new Iowa's, thirteen feature that sends any unknown numbers straight to voice. Man. Speaking of WW DC, Dan, you just came back from in had a hands on the MAC pro the MAC, pro everyone was waiting for this, obviously, they had the little like the trash can back over the last six years, that big black cylinder. The new one is I founded shockingly, conservative and traditionalist in its approach. And I don't necessarily mean that bad way. But it goes back to being a tower basically almost in a way inspired by gaming desktops, where you can take the side off swap out any parts tons of slots, it's basically a big rectangular a big rectangular tower desk. Stop which is not what it's been for the last six years now, does the MAC pro great all kinds of cheeses or is it? Hard cheese. Okay. And if you have something softer you're gonna wanna refrigerate it first firm it up a little bit. But certainly something like a gray hair or like a good. If it's smoke, then you can get some real good shreds off, and then the thousand dollar stand how. Right. Oh my goodness. So they had the fancy new pro monitor also, which is actually a good looking product does not seem overpriced for what it is intended for a very select audience. It's five or six thousand dollars paying which version, you get. But when you get the pro monitor it does not come with the stand or anything in the by she got up by this dance. Definitely. And it's a nicely engineered special STAN, that you could turn the screen sideways and put it in portrait mode, and other stuff. It's a thousand dollars. And let me tell you even though we were in the WW, keynote, where most of the audience is apple developers real fan boy types. When they said that the temperature in the room drop by about thirty five degrees. Everyone just went. And then they're all back up a minute later or something else. But for for moment, chilly room was do you think it's worth it? Like having seen it I don't know because they had a lot of MAC pros. And a lot of MAC pro monitors and stands set up all over the place, but you could not touch them. You could not even touch the monitor or see how the stand worked if you even reached out for it, some big tackle you guys. Dollars buddy. Get your off of it. Well, while the MAC pros, extremely powerful, Google is coming out and saying that you won't need a supercomputer to play the latest games they'll be showing off stadium. It's new cloud gaming platform later today. Basically, if you're not familiar means you'll be able to play high games through through the cloud, and you won't need this server side computing game is being played on a rack of GPS stuffed server somewhere and it just basically beams, the output to you, as you send your input to controller through the keyboard and mouse. I just did a panel last week. In London the casual connect conference on the future of cloud gaming, and we talked about stadia and all the other versions of this, that have been around for a long time really on live, was one of the first ones and they went out of business. They were little head of their time but still really impressive guy KYW was another that Sony bought and turned into PlayStation now, which is their version of it. Which, again kinda sorta works but do you see this as the actual future of Sunday? Yes. 'cause every future game console after I said the last year the current generation Xbox One and PlayStation four we're going to be the last generation of actual hardware boxes. And I was wrong. I was off. But I think this generation is going to be the last one future under just going to be kind of like this, like a little, like Roku sized box that you plug into a TV, or it'll be built into a TV and everything is going to be server side, just like no in downloads movies really anymore except under special circumstances. Everything just streams, same thing with the future of game. All right. That is more than the time that we had for today's show. Four zero five. Thanks for listening. I'm Alfred Dan Ackerman.

Computers are almost cooling in from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. First of all happy thanksgiving. Thanks for listening today and every day all this week on marketplace tech. We have partnered with c net talk about big trends in consumer technology once upon a time children, laptops and desktop computers. Were cool and not just the thing. You used for work, then phones and tablets came along gaming consoles got more popular and computers. No longer made the holiday shopping list, but that might be changing sea. Nets holiday shopping survey finds that young people are a lot more interested in computer hardware this year, mostly to play video games between fortnight and Eastport streaming kids are wanting more powerful systems than an XBox. Or a PS four, Dan Ackerman isn't editor at c net reviews who covers this area. He said there is a minor resurgence in the PC market. And a lot of that is driven by people who want to get really into PC gaming, which is suddenly very in vogue because people realize that the consoles that they play on or already four or five years old and kind of behind the curve, whereas modern. Shooters, frankly, look and play games so much better, especially if you have a four K TV or log people at four K monitors now, right? So one other trend we've seen lately is a kind of merging of laptops, and tablets and vice versa. What's driving that move? These big companies for the last of years have been trying to figure out how to capture some of the buzz and excitement that people had for the first five years or so about the ipad, and basically, no other tablets, just the ipad. They started by adding touched to a lot of them, then they started adding these little hinges that would fold back three hundred sixty degrees. I think most people who get one of these frankly, use them as a laptop ninety percent of the time as a tablet, you know, five percent of the time and the rest of the time, they just fold the screen back halfway and use it like a little kiosk a video display as people are making buying decisions around computers and laptops. We've had this age old question of Microsoft versus apple of course. But I wonder for people now as soft. Wear is less and less important. Does operating system matter if my operating system is essentially my browser you hit the nail exactly on the head. The experiential difference between using a MAC book, and using windows laptop is so much less than it ever was the Netflix works the same on both g mail works. The same on both Amazon works the same on both Facebook Instagram, and that's also why besides MAC, OS and windows ten a lot of people feel very comfortable using a Chromebook now, which was sort of an also ran in the computer category for years, frankly, if you gave somebody a Chromebook, it didn't tell him it was a Chromebook it might take them a while the notice because you're just surfing the web anyway. And it looks feels like chrome which you probably already use. There you go, and it's a great way to get a computer that feels fast and powerful for like four or five hundred dollars. Whereas if you bought a four hour windows laptop, it would work, but wouldn't really look. All right. Let's talk about the upgrade cycle and. Temped to ignore the messages for manufacturers. How often do people even need a new computer these days? Boy, these guys would love for you to buy a new laptop every couple of years they claim the life cycle on. Because though, it's twenty four months for you know, maybe three years a stretch for them. But people I talked to actually keep their laptops for a long time. But keeps them for four years five years six years. And it's it's less difficult now to do that because yes, new software comes out and requires more powerful processors to use. But most of the time you, and I are not using that. We're just frankly surfing the web and using that web browser interface like we talked about so your old MAC book air from three or four years ago. Frankly, works fine with that there may be a couple of websites that have really intensive and make it difficult to use it smoothly. But that's the exception. Rather than the rule. I think five years is a good rough back. The envelope estimate for what you should expect out of your laptop, especially if you're spending more than one thousand dollars on it. And you think about buying something a little fancier a little more expensive macbook pro versus macbook air. And you say, oh, I'm going to spread that cost out over five years. It may make a little more sense. Dan Ackerman is an editor at c net reviews focusing on PC's, and laptops, tomorrow is of course, black Friday the big shopping days.

Is the new MacBook Air really worth it? (The 3:59, Ep. 486)
"Chang amount for dang Jan Ackerman. At Apple's MAC book air is going on sale today. And we've got Dan ackman onto talk about his review. Hello breakdown for us is the new macbook air worth it. It's very different from the old MAC book air, which both of you guys. Have that's designed it has not changed a lot in the last basically eight to ten years, and it was just really getting old. I mean, they're just not. So remember one of the cool, but the almost tech. I went to look up the original two thousand eight was when this was announced this when Steve Jobs, I think famously took it out of Manila, which by the way, he like faked that it was it couldn't actually fit in a little bit extra large gun extra. There's no way that original mat book Erica fit in anyways. So I went back did, oh, let's look at the original review from ten years ago. I was like I wonder I looked at the review it said, oh who wrote this turns out. It was me. I had no memory of this whatsoever. But if you wanna see me giant sideburns, you can see the video for that that we republished back in January for the actual tenth anniversary. So this is the first really really really substantial redesign in many years on this. And you know, what it looks and feels like the twelve inch macbook and teen inch macbook pro it's right in that family. Now, it is it's got the same butterfly keyboard, which is very shallow. Keyboard that giant touch the retina display with the much smaller Bethel's, you're still windows, laptops, with less benzel than this which is a little border between. We're this display ends and the ends. Mattock pretty good. Can we talk about the ports ports common? Oi. May there's only the two that's always it, isn't it. That's number one question. If it's a new MAC book, it's going to have USB ports. Thunderbolt three ports, but the really USB confusing to people stand technically the shape, right? And you can do power through this video data really anything just like on the current macbook pros. And frankly, a lot of high in windows, laptops, are USB only. Now, also, so it's not that crazy. The USB. See I'm not I don't have a huge issue because I know a lot of companies are moving to them. That's the features going. It's the fact that there's only two on one side they can do one on one. They couldn't figure on regular US food Jaffe lights, we should answer the question. That's the title of this podcast, though. Is it worth it? Is it worth the higher price tag everything about this air is new and improved for the most part much faster processor better track? Keyboard you could equivocate on screen much, much better lighter. So everything pretty much changed. Unfortunately, also changed is the price the air famously nine ninety nine for many many many years you could say going to save up for a couple months again, a MAC book air for college students a bit of a reach. But you could do it. Now. The starting price is eleven ninety nine which is frankly twenty percent Trump. That's big jump. And and it's it's no longer the automatic recommendation for let's say at college to or writer designers because it's that much more expensive and for one hundred dollars more, you could get either the twelve inch MAC book, which is less powerful, but more portable, and I actually like it a lot or the base model thirteen inch pro which is less portable. But power. What do you think is this worth? I think if you want a MAC book air, but you didn't want this old one. Yes, overall, it's a fantastic laptop. And if it was nine ninety nine I'd go out and buy one myself, right? This second ten ninety nine still pretty good once eight eleven ninety nine. Then it's then it's less of a of a blow out. All right. So let's talk about privacy effort. You've got a fascinating story on. How restaurants are clicking our data through these weightless apps. What's going on here? So if you've ever been a restaurant, and it's packed, and they say, you know, give us your phone number, and we'll send you a tax tables. Right. You can go go walk around the mall or something like that. While you're waiting for your table. If they're using an apt to automak automatically send you a taxed there's a good chance that there are some privacy. Implications come with that. So certain apps will keep your phone number for a certain amount of days at restaurants can take a look at other apps. They're able to share it with party marketers one. For example, open table is owned by kayak, which means that they're able to share it with all their different websites. So that's one example, yelp owns one called no way. And they say that they don't really do any marketing with your number. But they do keep it if you're using their app. Restaurants and malls. Or you're going to all the nicest ones all the fanciest ones. I live very. The best here, we do have malls here. They're rare. But there are malls in Brooklyn in Manhattan. You can call that Amalia herald square. Okay. The famous famously almost always empty Manhattan mall. Exactly. Yes. So. Is something that people should be worried about it depends. I mean, if you really don't care about, you know, your privacy, and you really just want the convenience of it. There's there doing this. So it's much more convenient for you. So that the next time you go to this restaurant. They'll know oh, this guy likes a seat by the window or something. I got it. Okay. A lot of it is done for the restaurant sake as well. So they know when their peak hours are how long people are waiting how long they should keep people waiting for without them wanting to leave or anything. So it is beneficial for restaurants. But you do also have to be mindful of your privacy. Right. Do you want to be a part of that experience? Just another example our slowly giveaway away all information, you need a restaurant at burner number could do that companion at that will give you a sixty minute phone number, and you can give them that. All right. So we're way over time for more on this chicken sound CNN. Roger Chan I'm outfitting, Dan Ackerman listening.
Breaking down the Pixel 3, Pixel Slate and Home Hub (The 3:59, Ep. 471)
"Through fifty nine. I'm under Jiang and with me, our special guest, Dan Ackerman and just Doku art alot. Google had a busy day adding three new prostitutes harbor family style straight into the pixel three first chess, what stood out most for you? What stood out as really the lack of what stood out and this is definitely the most refined of all the pixel devices. It looks kind of the same. The Spar shrunk on the back a little bit that glossy like they called the two tone? Yes, colors are pretty neutral. It of looks more like an iphone. It's running the Android operating system, the latest one which is Android pie. So that's really interesting to see. Because of course, pixel represents Google's vision for what an Android phone really should be at its best. So it is interesting to see that there. I have some problems with the operating system. One thing that's notables there are two cameras on the front. Yes, in a taking a leaf out of el-jisr playback and that. So you can take like group self as we took when last night that actually had thirteen people in it. So. It works notably is that there is one camera lens on the back when you buy companies like LG and ralway that are putting three cameras on the back. So I'd say what we're looking at is a refined duration. It's caught the hardware specs that you expect for a flagship phone, but there's not that one killer feature or someone saved maybe a gimmick. Those interesting to me that the the larger XL was the only one with the notch and they kept with the standard. The standard smartphone designed for the small version. Is it because they're made by two different manufacturers again, like they were last year on who's making these two. Well, it should be there in house team. They brought over from HTC as part of that deal last year was what they, she c l g I talked to them about the hardware built, and they said it was just a matter of not being able to fit the components into the smaller version and making the notch look, fine. Look, you know work, I guess, because if you notice the notch on the bigger phone, it's a lot bigger than some the other notch is out there. So the reason why is because it's making room for those two front facing cameras? Exactly. Still like three d. face sicker face in like unlock the iphone house. All right. Moving onto the pixel sleigh which is kind of like a surface chrome OS powered even has an expensive keyboard accessory, Dan, would you think it's a Chromebook meets surface pro from Microsoft. They had an expensive thing last year. The pixel book, which was very nice high end Chromebook, but high end Chromebook is a bit of an oxymoron. People think of those cheap laptops, but give you could. A case for one. The problem with this guy is it's it's the slate, and then you click on the keyboard, but just like the surface just like the ipad pro, they show it to you. If the keyboard writing, they give you a price, but then you gotta buy the keyboard separately, like two hundred dollars. That's crazy. It's a keyboard when you out at all together, we've got even like nine hundred dollars. Yeah. Sixteen hundred. You're paying eighteen hundred dollars surfaces. The same problem for Microsoft. But if this thing is starts at six, the keyboard is to it's a thirty three to one third premium to add the keyboard hundred bucks a style is I don't know why Stein loses from everybody. One hundred dollars seems crazy to me. All right. Lastly, there was the home hob. We saw just saw the Facebook portal as well as the echo show come out two weeks ago, those two touted video chat as a core service. But this one interestingly has has no camera. I'm just curious what you guys thought about, say you can put one in the bathroom, right? Yes, that's true. In the future devices that don't have cameras that's going to become bullet point feature. No camera because no one actually enjoys video chatting. I think something we talk about love. One person on my my tablet can move around and we still have laptops. So people still use Skype. I think what's interesting about it as of course that it's bringing Google services into the home in a way that obviously is meant to destabilize Amazon and the big wins that Amazon his, you know, one so far, the gains they've made, I want to do. To do less than talk to you on the phone is video chat with people. There you go for full coverage, all things go chick sound seen it. I'm under Jane. Jessica Belcourt Dan. Listening.

Apple unveils new versions of it's iphone today. CNN editor Dan Ackerman tells are pomeranian. It's all about staying on top. Apple like any other phone company has to kind of keep up with the Joneses. And if somebody has a new feature, then they're going to add a new feature just an apples case it maybe a year or two later, just like they edit those edged ahead screens and facial recognition and things like that a little bit after everybody else. Well, Samsung has their note series of phones, which have very very very big screens are almost like tiny tablets so now. We may very well. We don't know for sure. But it certainly seems like we're going to be getting a super size version of the iphone today on on new iphone day, six and a half inch screen is is compared to five point eight is it that big of the difference. Do you think? If you look at the the existing Samsung galaxy phones and the galaxy note, those you can really feel a real difference. But they're included tiny styles with it. It's really been for note taking here, I think the applications are good Ivy. More video playback taking and looking at photos, maybe some games, maybe augmented reality apps. It turns out the more screen real estate, you give people the more. They watch anything other than the screen that you're hearing about what we might be seeing today, or is this just kind of a tune-up of existing things. I called the curse of the annual upgrade cycle where every year these phone companies feel like they need to put out a new version of their product around the same time every year or everyone's gonna go. Hey, where's the new phone? What happened to these guys? So then they put out a phone with a with a very minor set of upgrade, usually and everyone goes out at it. Why did we why did we wait? Oh, you're so they can't with that said big screen is big deal. I don't spend a lot of new features per se, but the chance of getting a. A less expensive version. They might be calling that are maybe it means for regular folks that could be a couple of hundred dollars less than the iphone ten s which is be the new flagship dash actually, probably the most interesting thing Dan Ackerman from CNN, thanks as always for your time.
