"Also can't do that to scale because one person and you get a request a doctor's appointment or something you know so then we ended up speaking in generalities which which for the most part i don't. There's problems with those two. If you just come out and say get an iphone. Everybody just shut up and get an iphone. We'll people hate you for that too. The they're they're they're like not that. I current even using one. But it's a safe bet for the masses and but you're kind of eliminating your own job at that point to recommending the thing that's easy to recommend. So it's i. I'm conflicted rate where your head is right now. Look i'm kind of watching your head. Yeah that's exactly what. I'm talking about like that kind of like you know because it's like it's so hard but i've gone through a lot of phases having done it for two years or ten years two years. Imagine of strongly recommending. I've been there. The don't don't get this. This thing's a bad value for or on the flip side of it. Here's the this is the one you want. And it's actually life and life experience in life exposures to people who humans who've taken that advice and then Me witnessing that in real life going oh my god. That's what i did there that that has kind of pushed me away from that. I know this sounds extremely dramatic. It sounds really dramatic. Think who cares just a phone relax but you have inserted yourself into this other person's life you've done that you food. Your path has led you in that direction. And then so. It makes sense in my brain to be considerate of that. And i personally feel more comfortable just presenting things just saying here's a thing it exists for the most part. Feel feel the way you feel about it and make of it what you will. I think that's probably the best argument for like. If you were to add onto my video that would be probably the best argument for on boxing serving a more altruistic purpose than what we consider reviews to be sort of. That's the that's the proper thing review unsponsored review. That's the high level. But like you said it's so hard to pour something specific about yourself into the review that maybe doesn't apply to somebody that they tell you they bought it and it's the wrong thing for them and you know i it was your dave lee Podcast you mention that video where you made a report. Their phones to be like are they put their money with about this kind of thing so something i do try to do. But there's even a caveat on that. Is i try to update people cameras. I'm using to make my videos and you know keep accurate information with that. So it's not like. I told everybody by this but i'm actually using that. The problem though is i can switch cameras heck of a lot more frequently than other people can't do so even that feels.

It was certain degree it. I always thought it was such a strange exercise since i started doing it.

Just what we're doing right now. Sure i feel like you're going to know a lot more about me if we interact in this fashion as opposed to fight. Slap a box on a table. Right what do we. What do we know about each other. Right I asked this question a which i think it'd be interesting. Get your answer to. But i asked the same question of mckinney said dave youtube dot com slash dave to d represents what percentage of dave lee. Oh right now like twenty percent so if somebody's is a enthused of this youtube channel you feel that they know twenty percent of you if that the more you think about it. The lower the number gets. Yeah what do peter say. Look i think it was lower than that said ten percent. Yeah i already made said nothing at all but what was interesting in his case. You don't remember. He had no. I don't it was an hour. Something conversation but But it's not a big number is what you do remember if you did it was it was a small number or nothing at all. And what was interesting. In his case his channel was youtube dot com slash peter mackinnon or is say that's his channels is real name full name. Yeah oh fancy business.

My it flipped you to change the name of my channel to be dave lee because of some sign up thing and then i changed it back to the channel nine so you were daily for a bit and you six-month feeling that i was like i didn't even notice it but my audience was like. Why did you change your challenge to dave leeann ha and i was did change and then i switched back but you prefer dave to detour daily for the channel. I think yeah. I don't really care at this point. But seeing i think i associate the dave to d with a with youtube more than my actual name. I'm certain right now that i'm enjoying this conversation. More than the average person listening to this stuff. I'm just fascinated with this stuff. Yeah i i don't know the average person might be like keep dave talking about apple or something like that. This is like so deep. I like lake thinking about this. I'm just here's the thing about it is. I'm what would what's cool to me what i'm trying to perceive as being cool is to find out something about you can't show up in one of your own videos like this would be this sir video on your channel right. Why am i channel was named dave to d. Dave lee is absurd. No one would care. No one would care. I would not want to talk about it..

"That is a tremendous shift in brand identity from where it all started one plus one or whatever it was they had like much more guerrilla tactics from marketing perspective and other people by the way have adopted that flagship killer yep Idea and are still attempting to do it. And maybe one plus will employ that branding again through nord or attempt to you. Just put a video on north to yeah. That's what is this a couple of days from now this point yeah But hold on that statement. You said of how you think that one plus for certain brands could employ that similar tactic. I would say that. I mean i think the whole thing about brands using youtubers or using youtube as a platform to promote stuff. It's changed a lot right from when you started to now. I don't know if you could do that now. I think that brands all try to squeeze youtubers for extra coverage and extra you know did to promote products right but i think there is a. There's a pushback. I bring this up like okay My my brain gone onto this. From carl pay so one. Plus the beginning. Carl pay and i think carl really utilized youtubers in a great way to promote and educate people about the one plus brand and his new company. The nothing brand with ear buds. I think there. I think he's it's the same idea right. You're using youtubers to promote and educate people but among other things doing promos stock. Act crazy right. Yup but that whole i mean if you're just focusing on youtube that different now the way that that the way that a product can get exposure on youtube now works completely different than it did a few years ago and i feel like the audience is just so much more. There's so much more smarter now. They recognize when things are ads. And when things are so so. I think the part i was going at it was more along. The lines of slim profit margins It's like i. i'm not even at the point of marketing. I'm like hey let's make a product and is starting from the standpoint of what type of profit margin do we wanna realize If you're sitting there looking at apple as your target and being like damn losing money turn over there.

Your nose thing is a style you can wear underneath and it's a party that you know about maybe others. Don't i mean like you could really get carried away with only one invited me. That's you're correct on that. That could be exactly what it is. Yeah anyway. I've been wearing me on these for a long time. as you know if you've been paying attention to this show it's they're super soft. Well actually they have so many different models right now but I pretty sure all of them are super soft but the ones that i'm wearing with the what they call that material will modell.

If you pop that thing open can swap that out that the envy me might have. They might have said that. i'm not sure. Yeah but i just think that forget about storage for a second. Forget about the speed and like the technical elements of it. You have a device that i think you think about your kids. Let's say their console players right. Yeah well both okay. Yeah but if you're if you're if you are a console player the interest that you have in the pc world is limited. It's like you're you're going to stick with consuls. Because you're familiar with it. You have you like the controls like everything about consoles is like decidedly console focused this bridges it in this really nice manner that i think if you're a kid that's never had the for one financial ability to buy gaming. Pc and then also the kind of technical the technical desire to like learn how to figure this stuff out right like sending up steam and like doing a game download like that. This is such a nice device. That just bridges i think is just a. It's like an easy way for people to to get into this whole pc gaming thing. I love seeing this. Yeah no i'm with you. I think it's cool. I i think it. There's no reason it shouldn't do. Well i hope making hardware is hard. Yeah w- we talked about it with cars. Like i can't get i don't know where my tesla is. You know. I mean like sometimes demand can exceed the ability to deliver this one of the areas where Apple is incredible supply. Chain stuff like no matter. How many iphones people want. They'll give them. They'll get iphones to them. And it's a lot of other companies that show off have amazing demos and then maybe the thing that gets delivered doesn't live up to the hype. I'm worried that the hype is really huge. Here could be it. Could be and steams hardware like you're saying that in the past it's always been a little lackluster not that the hardware is not good is their ability to deliver and support that hardware. Kinda peters off quickly so maybe. This is the turnaround point. Maybe maybe they nail it here and all of a sudden they've got a real a real play. Hopefully that's what ends up happening. When when does this thing. When are you getting your hands on this thing on your channel since he made such a nice video. I don't know they didn't reach out to me really. Listen here valve.

But that's not four. Hundred bucks is not four hundred bucks and it doesn't have the software tie-in with steam. Which hopefully they can take that experience and kind of mesh it in such a fashion that there's less work for the end user to map it accordingly to make it useful like with these ones that are that some real enthusiasts stuff i mean. They raised three million dollars. So it's it's there's a lot of enthusiasts but enthusiasts in the sense that you're going to have to like there's like there's no touch pads on it for example so certain games. Certain games are gonna be Neil certain games might not map all that. Well two joysticks now. Obviously you feel hook up external peripherals to it. But i'm not sure. That's the intent and i'm pretty sure that's why valve put the touch pads on theirs and they show it off working but that's a gaming. Pc in one yeah. That's a gaming.

Until i see it but the difference was this was the content that these people are being shown was like atrocious stuff. Yeah it was meant to be tortured. But i think i was more. It was more the formatting of like the speed Yeah and variety within the lack of context the no storyline clips isn't happening either no narrative. Yeah i dunno anyway. Whatever reality this this. This topic is very complicated. Because it's not all the same. Everyone has a different algorithm. Everybody's seeing it's impossible to even really Is is a is a hard topic to discuss. Because it's so different for everyone right but anyway back to tack back to back to tech. Because i've looked at about a billion smartphones and you've looked at about a billion smartphones and you look at about a billion laptops. How do you feel what is the difference in in how you look at these things now versus when you started i think we are closer to the commoditisation of both of those categories than before at it like they're they're so similar all the brands all the different laptop brands all the different phone brands. They're producing devices that you have to dig to find differences between and how has that changed the way in which you approach the the way that you discuss them you.

The existence of that platform has fundamentally changed the way that media is consumed everywhere and it's affected the way that people's minds are in what to expect. And what they want out of online content. Because it's so good like tick talk is very very powerful. Ten can get clarification on the word good here. It's it's weaponized. it's very good sure. It's very effective at doing what to talk. Wanted it to do their algorithm for making their algorithm for matching tick-tock bits to like viewers and for them to like match.

I say it's bad for the brain though when i'm what i think it does is like because it's so quick and it just keeps. It keeps shifting to like the next the next video next clip.

U.S. vows 100% tariffs on French Champagne, cheese, handbags over digital tax
"Washington is threatening trade retaliation against France what it says is a plans to scrimmage free digital tanks on profits earned by U. S. take companies trade officials are threatening to impose additional tariffs on French luxury goods Dave Lee has the details since the biggest tech companies in the western world a mostly crated in Silicon Valley Washington fails that this digital tax unfairly targets American success stories is now proposing that if fronts goes ahead and imposes a three percent levy on the revenues of companies like Amazon Google apple and Facebook it would slap huge tariffs on French exports like cheese champagne and handbags Francis said it will drop its tax plan if the rest of the European Union can collectively come up with an alternative one which taxes sales as well as
France passes controversial tax on tech companies
"The U._S. is pushing back like on a new tax law in France. That's aimed at big tech firms the usual suspects including apple facebook and Google the three percent taxes on sales generated in France by those companies president trump has ordered an investigation which could result in retaliatory tariffs. French Finance Minister Bruno Lemaire defended the new tax today saying France was quote sovereign and decided its own tax rules. Dave Lee is with our B._B._C. partners. He's there Silicon Valley reporter and joins us from San Francisco. How much is this tax in? Will it only affect U._S.. Companies it would only affect U._S.. Tech Companies Marco but the majority of the companies that are wrapped up in this new tax will be U._S.. Firms because this is the tax mess going to be on Internet companies that do business. It's in France but don't necessarily have a physical presence there so for example companies like facebook what this tax will seek to do is tax three percent on Internet companies that have global annual revenues of more than seven hundred fifty million euros as around eight hundred fifty million dollars and the French finance minister. He predicts that that's going to bring in around four hundred million euros to Franz every single year. What is the goal of this tech? I mean why is France doing this. We'll franc- this as something of leveling of the playing field is going the attacks on revenue rather than profit because of course one of the things that has been particularly for straightening too many governments around the world for some time now is the ability for technology companies to operate in countries where they have no real substantial presence which is something. I think that you know in times gone by companies simply weren't able to do but with the dawn of the Internet and social media and so forth that has become possible but has something Silicon Valley certainly isn't keen on because globally that will open them up to a lot more chances to be taxed in the countries where they're popular without France explicitly articulating it. Do you believe that this tax might be a form of punishment for many of these silicon valley companies not getting in order the disinformation on their social media platforms. I mean it certainly helps when it comes to expressing these policies both to colleagues in political circles in place La France but also the electorate as well. I mean one of the reasons why the U._S. has said this. Targets American companies is because politicians have explicitly mentioned American companies when they've in formulating these tax plans often we hear in soundbites politicians refer to this kind of thing as an Amazon tax or an apple tax. There was a recent incident with the leader of the opposition in the U.. K. When Amazon celebrated its twenty fifth anniversary recently recently the opposition leader sent a car to them saying many happy tax returns as a political stunt at P._S.. Done so it's a vote winner. Put it that way tighter regulations on tech companies is certainly something that all political shades seemed to be on board with the big reaction today has been from Washington. The trump administration announced a formal investigation into whether the tax unfairly discriminates against U._S. businesses. What would the U._S. do in retaliation? If the investigation concludes that there is discrimination yes well. This is the big question here. What exactly could this lead to now and it could be looking at adding tariffs on things of France is especially active with exporting to the U._S.? For example commercial aviation wine and so forth France exports a lot of that so that could be one one direction the U._S. might take although having said that we do know that the French Finance Ministry and the U._S. Treasury are in contact with each other and there's an increasing feeling. I think that this is a play by Franz to kind of force the issue. Do I think there is this desire not just from Franz from several countries to say what we need to do is not have this piecemeal tax situation in different countries around the world but the have one tax regime for everyone that means companies can't pick you can choose the countries that gives them favorable conditions to steal their money out that does seem more likely an agreement rather than major tariffs that could affect France.

What's sap users around the world have been told that a serious flaw in the company's messaging service allowed attackers to install spyware on their phones. It seems the militias software was transmitted during what's up phone calls and could even be installed. If the uses didn't answer the calls. I asked on North America technology reporter, Dave Lee. With a what's up uses should be worried? Very small slice of what's have uses convened. By reason, why say is this is we we understand that are very highly targeted attacks or a small number of people targeted for a specific reason, we don't know targeted by who was talking to seeing them for what reason, but we don't expect to be something that affects a huge numbers of users. But that's not to say that. This isn't shame these serious for this is something WhatsApp discovered itself and the beginning of this month, they said it took around ten days or so to patch. The problem to fix the problem. And in that time, they took they said to reach out to human rights organizations to law enforcement to explain what exactly happened, and what the risks were. But I I've been talking to Amnesty International the last few moments, and they told me that this is the attack Fave. They fear. It had always been possible. They said they're always worried that those going to be a type of attack that didn't require the targets to do anything, and it would still give these attackers access the device has something are worried about and this is evidence that that's wars at least possible and anchor potentially be possible again in the future. It's interesting. You mention that I wanted if you might be able to explain to kind of the Israeli connection because it's something I've been struggling to come to terms with myself, perhaps who the spy was actually used a target in this case. Yes is really interesting distinction. Because the group that created the tool is a group known as the NSO group, they're based in Israel and become known for number of years. Now is creating these tools that can be used for for surveillance purposes. Now group says they sell that promo two governments for the purposes of fighting crime and and fighting terrorism, but there's been long been his Asians of those tools are being sold to regimes ahead, Paul human rights records, and therefore that were being used to target. Journalists target human rights activists and so forth. We have very little things about who might have been using this tool. Who they may have been targeting. The NSO group say they were involved in doing that. But pledging to find out about this. I think just finally once owned by Facebook, just briefly what's their reaction been to their uses them? They're advising them. We'll Facebook is talking through what saps communication saying though saying as a precaution. Everyone should update their what's our apple their phone. That's very important. And they've just said they they've done their best to get on top of this problem.

And confronts it was also revealed at Facebook app. We'll no longer beat blue the BBC's Dave Lee was there in San Jose. He told me why he told me that Facebook's new-look may not be as different as it sounds. It just seems to be a bit of moving the furniture around the page emphasis on certain different features ever example, the group's function. That is already very popular is going to be even more than it has been in the past. And this is all to do with Facebook saying they think the future of how people are going to use the platform is going to be a bit more private. It's going to be part of those groups is going to be brought conversations with friends and family rather than what the empire, I guess you'd call. It has been built on up until this point which is things I've used feed where people post whatever they want, and it could be shared often too. Great number of people. So there. Seeing shifted their focus. But I think it's probably more accurate to call them tweaks rather than solutions. Okay. But we'll that new focus on privacy. Satisfy Facebook's critics. No, I don't think it will. And one of the things that's interesting is among burgers. We heard the clip there is talking about how governments bear three messages and Facebook won't be able to do that. And while that's good news for peoples privacy because it will mean as messages almost secure. There is going to be a view, particularly in Washington that Facebook is maneuvering chef to kind of abdicate some of the responsibility here because one of the things that Facebook's cut it in a lot of trouble with is the material harmful maims spreading fake news misinformation. Making all of the conversation on Facebook, more private it's going to be a lot harder to see that happening and therefore issue to be much harder to hold Facebook to account for what does happen on Facebook because nobody will be able to see half of it because it will be in private groups. And what about users with it? Risk losing some of them. It's always a risk, isn't it when they make a redesign? Remember, the good old days of Facebook. When a minor tweak would always spur a bunch of groups same. But it back in the old way was much better this out the other. But I think the more broad problem for Facebook isn't how the site looks. But just people wanting to use different services in different ways, the fastest growing up, for example, in the US isn't anything that Facebook's putting out there. It snap could tick tock which is now run by a Chinese companies associate work incredibly popular with teenagers. So it's less about what Facebook is doing changes work and more about what else is out there. The people are looking forward to using instead Dave Lee in some areas.

"Soon. What do we know about this? Well, not much more beyond the official confirmation on the XInhua news agency and one photograph that has come from the Chinese space agency showing the surface of the moon has that Luna. Sort of begat its approach. And as you say, it's it really is an extraordinary milestone, we have we have flown spacecraft's crafts round the moon. Of course, spacecraft's have beaten in moon orbit many times. So we've taken photographs of the faucet of the moon. We know it's topography very well. That nobody has ever tried to land a lunar probe on the far side because of the difficulties it's much more. Rugged terrain much more crater marked much harder to find suitable a smooth areas for a safe landing and also because it's out of radio contact to do this. The Chinese scientists have had to put up a separate. Space vehicle in Fara orbit basically in stationary orbit, using both the moon and the earth's gravity to beam beam the signal back, and what's what that's meant. In fact, is that there's a three second delay between getting information from this probe back to the earth. So everything's had to be done remotely that three. Second. Delay means there's no possibility of manual control of the landing. It's all had to be done. Using remote sensors specially built for the task the scientists have been training in the desert of Xinjiang in China's far west for that task. And so far at least we're told so far so good and John not to take anything away. Just quickly not to take anything away from the scientific value of this. This has been a massive propaganda leap for China as well. Which has huge space race ambitions. Of course. It's building space stations. It has plans for its own attempts within the next decade or so for for a Mars landing. And this is a real important staging-post, the moon could obviously be used to help in some of those endeavors, not to mention the fact that the far side of the moon, and the crater in particular where it's not it is thought to be very rich in minerals, and there's all these possibilities of courses as well about moon mining and the economic benefit that may win those who are first of that prize as John sudworth in Beijing. Thank you very much for joining us. Now the festive season is usually apples strongest time of the year. Not this year.

After the news was revealed, apple share price sank more than seven percent in after hours trading. I asked our Silicon Valley reporter, Dave Lee about this surprise bad news for investors investors in apple been used to good news for more than the last ten years, or so in fact. Any slight wobble in earnings was a huge coach concerned. And in the context of that, this is a massive wall bullets. Re considerable drop in what they predict they're going to have made in Q one at least five billion dollars less than what they first forecast, and the reason as well, there's several factors, but the main reason is the performance of the iphone and also the performance of apple generally in China, and those things combined has made the app was psyched. It's very rare step of sending a letter to its invested in saying ensure will brace yourself, but what I think is important to stress is that the issues in China with a focus of apples letter. But I do still think in a way they've used that to kind of paper over some of the wider concerns about the I find because while the I find was down considerably in China. They also said in the in the letter in in slightly less obvious terms. They also said in developing markets, people were an upgrade narrow iphones as quickly as they thought thing apple to have problems. That go beyond what's happening there, and it speaks more widely about the production have an offer. Now. That's it's an interesting point, isn't it because the iphone has been the savior of apple. But are we now getting to the point where we just don't need to great anymore? That certainly seems to be the majority of consumers seem to be demonstrating the consensus among analysts when I speak to them. Not just. The pace of this news. But just generally throughout the past twelve months is it the smartphone era. Is coming to an end. And it's a moment where whereas ten years ago when the iphone first came out every new I find brought something new and interesting the Kashima's with desperate to get hold off. And make sure that the new one every single year now smartphones don't have that kind of hold the updates incremental. They're not seen as life changing and things like batteries a lasting longer. And that was one of the main drivers why people would say, oh, I need to get new fine.

So you know his, his impression is left on this podcast even though he is roaming around, I think on summer vacation with his family right now which you know the nerve of that guy to do that anyway. Topic number one this week in tech panics. The macbook pro had a week youtuber. Dave Lee found that his brand new top of the line core. I nine laptop last week was way too slow unless he put it in the freezer which you should not do also gloves don't work well on track pads. So just it's not gonna work, but thus began a cycle of reactions. How can apple do this? Who are they trying to fool? Why you know? Why do they make people try to think that these expensive products are any good. They don't even test them how they could they shipped it. And of course, in a week it was uncovered that it was a weird firmware bug in the cooling system that it's lip through Apple's in house testing and ended up on shipping systems. Even though the versions that they tested in house didn't have the bug. It was sort of missing piece of software and apple. Obviously, some people worked all weekend because in a week from when Lee posted his video and it went viral, there was a release and it was fixed, and it was just a software. And then everybody tested the new laptops after the fix, and they said, oh, now it makes sense. It works fine. So I've got large scale questions in small scale questions. But first, let's start with this story itself and how apple handed it. I I mentioned earlier that Michael Garten Burg used to work inside apple. How do you? How do you think apple handle this? And what's your reaction to how the world reacted and then how apple reacted. Well, in this particular case, I think apple reacted well, and we found this bug was found in one particular scenario, doing one particular action and apples testing QA while extremely thorough may not include every single permutation, and I suspect he was this particular function combined with this particular bug, and then there's two ways to deal with it. One is to acknowledge that there indeed is a problem, and the second is to ignore the problem and you're gonna fix it. Third is not to acknowledge anything. Usually the problem if you know you have the fix and I think that was the case here. Apple acknowledged it and they promptly released a fixed. They're able to duplicate now, fix it. When apple doesn't acknowledge the problem, even though it seems to be a widespread problem. For example, the problem that people were having with keyboards exact apple never acknowledged that as a real problem. But then promptly changed the keyboard designed MAC pro. Properly. I suspect one of the reasons for that is you acknowledge you have a problem in the keyboard maybe even though about with the keyboard, but it's x. number of max that have why problem, and it's cheaper just to replace the x. number rather than say, we have a problem and then suddenly have to replace everyone's MAC and then be subject to the usual class action. Lawsuits that invariably comes around. So I don't know anyone who had keyboard problem than apple hasn't been able to deal with for the most part, but neck as it's kinda telling that they re designed it with little bit of silicone a little bit of the protection sa- prevent Dustin stuff getting in..
