"That sleep mode one, the new on watchos seven, and it turns the always on display off and you have yet to see something and you can see why apple as a company that wants to both encourage people who are interested to where their watch all night. But also doesn't want people to feel like now they don't know when to charge it to encourage them to use a mode where the screen goes completely off even with a quote unquote always on display. Yeah, and it's that sleep like Modem and previously I've always had to just put it in. I got into the habit I always flip my watch into theater mode right like when I got into bed because that was just the way you had to do it before But like what's weird with the sleep mode is the way apple tries to schedule it and have it be this automatic thing where like I find it kind of annoying where like it also turns off the sleep mode in the morning based on the time that you've said that you typically wake up. And I've definitely had times when I've like. Like I've been sleeping in for whatever reason I went to bed. Later, I was up in the night with the kid or whatever it is. And I'm I feel like I've been woken up by the bright light of the always you know like my new Apple Watch has very bright always on display which they talked all about it in the thing like it's twice as bright or three times as bright or whatever it is like they are true in a dark room it woke me up and it's like that is not I did not set an alarm I did not want this bright blaring to be like you know I'm from my wrist as unlike line state arms next to me on the pillow like. and. So I I wish that was they didn't quite go down that road of it being so scheduled and so like no when I go to bed. I'll hit the button dark room. It's going to be very obvious that I have not put a in sleep mode yet, and in the morning when I wake up, it's going to be very obvious when I look for the time am I screen is black and turning my wrist it still is black I'm going to remember to turn off sleep mode, and so I think that's like almost all of that off at this point for myself like I had it on just so I know how it worked but for myself I turned it all off and I just manually. Put it in sleep mode mainly, take it out of sleep mode in the morning. Yeah. That's what I do too, and the only thing I automated is I automate do not disturb, which is what I've been doing ever. Since it was a feature what I say just don't send me notifications between this hour and that our but then other than that I'm managing annually Yeah Yeah and God help you a worst only thing worse than you're always on series six bright display waking you up in the middle of night is waking up whoever you are in bed with. would. It's it's not what you want. Is there a be this beaming like there's light second bed this is not this. This is not sustainable it is it is an inter, but it's it's always like be careful what you wish for it's like I've been clamoring for an always on display since the very first watch I spend an embarrassing amount of my zero watch review complaining about the fact that the display isn't always on and I thought it was nothing but upside once they get the battery life to the point and then I went to bed with a very brave watch and I was like, oh There is a downside yet. All, right for sure. Well, you have been extremely generous with your time in an extraordinarily busy week and but what a great time to have you on the show for the first time David I really appreciate it a so your APPs. Fifty nine APPs we can't talk about all of them, but there's we did Smith and watch Smith and sleep plus plus which we've mentioned any other apps you WanNa toss out there I think the only other APP that I think is like that's been. A service standby for me for many years this pedometer plus which is counting APP and I feel like those four would just myth myth sleeps plus parameter plus plus that's like that's my business. At this point. Those are the ones that have survived out of the fifty nine. Yeah. You know what and speaking about you said how you did a calendar APP in that helps you with Smith being so I it hooked into the health system had been a huge leg up because that's just not not apples fault. It is complicated because it has to be complicated for privacy reasons alone, right? Yes. Yes. Is it is one of the more. convoluted systems for good reason I. Think it's right do a really good job of making it usable but also. PEAC there are a lot of weird edge cases in the health system that I have spent a lot of time in have grey hairs on right with pedometer plus and grey hairs ethos plus. PODCAST. Wise. You do have a podcast with Marco arment under the radar, which can you can search for and your podcast APP? Of Choice which is probably overcast I. Hope So. and it will probably show up as the number one hit and not number two. From an APP called under the our podcast called under the radar color podcasts. Yeah Thank you so much Rabiya. What else Oh of course, twitter you are underscore David Smith where where the underscore is an actual underscore. Hit Room. Have you ever seen there's old I. Think it was McSweeney Internet tendencies where there's like. Ten worst email addresses in history to read over the phone out. I. Think. I've seen this kind of thing at worth certain certain punctuation and things. Actually a word or. A mixture of like. U. N. D. E. R. S. C. O. R. E. Underscore, but anyway, I'll put it in show notes I swear. It occurred to me whether whether or not you're underscore in underscore David. Smith. Is An underscore or the word but yeah, people will find you anyway. Thank you so much..

"Plus to sort of been locked So that question is easier one. So sleep pluses downloads have been up since watch os seven. came out. So it's clearly sherlock. It's reluctant the best way possible that is involving more people downloading where it's if apple if anything apple is created awareness that tracking a thing, you want to use your watch for which previously I had to convince people that that was possible that they should try them like charger watch when you're showering so that you can wear it overnight. I had to kind of do that kind of messaging and convince people that like boy charge my watch overnight if I don't charge overnight when my when of my ever going to have my watch charged and you've quickly realized that if you charge it when you're getting ready in the morning and when you're getting ready for bed. It's very easy to typically like normal person to have. your watch charge but I think what's Apple doing it is just what's tricky about it is there. I think they're limited by the battery life of the Apple Watch in the level of analysis in detail, they can pull out of you while you're sleeping. That for all their fancy algorithms, and for all, they're trying to do their machine learning and it's your second to none. But the reality is they're still only collecting motion data heart rate every six, every six minutes, and that's it. If you imagine the sensors that are active during the night and I suppose they could potentially be using the microphone much sure about that but There's there's a limit to what they can do with that and they'd I think decided. Early on it seems shortly at this point is they're not going down the road of clinical analysis of your sleep. They're not trying to in my in my development workforce sleep as plus for while I was wearing a variety of like dedic more dedicated sleep tracking devices, and they're ones that. Continuous heart rate monitoring throughout the night, and so this is you know essentially the the Mo that you're watches in when you're running a workout, it's running like that continuously and so it's heavy it's tracking your heart rate. You know multiple times per second and if with that kind of data, if you have continuous data, you can really start to get into the weeds potentially about sleep stages and. Ram Sleep has a different heart rate, respiratory rate then slow wave sleep or then light sleeper. They can very easily tell when you're awake and when you're asleep because motion is a pretty bad metric for awake and asleep because if you're lying in bed reading especially, if you're reading on the IPAD but you don't have to move your wrist, turn the page, I could very easily be lying in bed completely still. But be wake, and there's no way for the watch to know that other than her rate because your heart rate goes down when you fall asleep and I think because apple doesn't want it they don't have the battery budget to run the heart rate data all night long. Day are limited in kind of mostly they can just do cut the kind of things. I do in those plus where they can say you went to it seems like you slept about this long. You were generally asleep in ways that we can be confident about about this often. And I think that's meant that they instead rather than being a clinical approach with sleep tracking, they're going the behavioral model for sleep tracking and they're just trying to. Do all the things that they can say we're GONNA influence. You can make make good choices to help you wind. And kick off this shortcut an hour you know it's it's now it's time for wind down. You'll get a little like tap on your wrist and say, Hey, you said you wanted to go to bed at ten o'clock. It's nine, fifty, nine, thirty maybe you should you know calm down would you like to listen to some calm music like they're going down that road where it's? It's very much. Like. This behavioral modification version of sleep tracking, which I think makes sense because of the data they have, and because of what they could show you, they can't they don't they don't over promise and say that it's a really powerful sleep tracker because it isn't there are better sleep trackers out there if you actually are like if you have sleep apnea and need to track your sleep in great detail. The Apple Watch is not the device view. But what they're saying is the sleep. Hopefully, the Apple Watch ends with tracking on the apple-watching seven. It'll encourage you to sleep more and to have better sleep sort of patterns and hygiene that you're GonNa turn off your phone earlier and you're gonNA. Go to bed at a more consistent time, which are the actual changes that you can actually make to your sleep. You know you can't take change if your kid wakes up in the night, but you can certainly turn off the turn off your phone and our before you go to bed and not just like stay up late reading twitter movies like that's a choice that you can make. So they can encourage you there, but I can end then for. The actual data perspective like my model gets a little bit better because now they're also recording. The Apple Watch records when it thinks I'm asleep, and so that is a confirmation or a adjustment that I can feed into my model because if I didn't think you were awake but the Apple Watch does think you're awake there's a very good chance there right and I'm wrong because they're operating at a much lower level even if not with necessarily like way more data, they have they definitely have a better amount of data and certainly better machine learning and giant team of data scientists. I'm sure who've dyke finely tuned their model. I'm just like a guy in my basement writing codes. You know you've got to imagine their data is better than mine. So my my model got better. In Watch os seven but for people who just went track trends and get a sense of like when do I go to bed on Tuesday nights like at the health APP is hopeless for that kind of stuff sleepless plus is an APP that is useful for everybody even if they do have watch os seven and use the system sleep tracking. Like. Maybe Tuesday nights is your basketball league liner volleyball and your exercise, but it's you know it's for working professionals in you play late games you're. Late in the day and oh wow, look at that. I every Tuesday night I actually have wind up sleeping earlier because I did this.

"The weather APP and when. So I'm always like flipping that switch and so as a developer, that's one of the places where I'm just being a little opinionated and saying. I think this is actually what you want that. When you say, you want to know the whether you actually want to know what it's GonNa feel like if you go outside not what a thermometer sitting outside, it would tell you and so in the same like what you were saying earlier reflect tummy the problem don't tell me what your solution is to the problem like the problem you have is what it's GonNa. What's IT GONNA feel like if I go outside and I can answer that question people of work this out with you know feels like temperature, wind chill and heat index and. All that and so I'm actually I think that's a better answer and some people get really upset about that. When they realized that like, why does it? It's like my thermometer outside on my deck says that it's eighty degrees but you're set your you know your thing says it's ninety degrees. It's like was because it's super humid outside and if you go outside, you're gonna it's to feel like it's ninety and so that's why there's an option to do it like I'm to let you made it to that you can optionally. Turn it off. But as A. Default I, I firmly believe that apparent temperatures would everyone should think about because that's actually what people care about. Okay. I was on board with you and on that team all summer long earlier, this summer I switched all of my apps that and I switch between a bunch that all that support feels like I, switched to feels like a hat on my watch and I was like this is this is fantastic and every day L. and it was summer and it was you know these coasts. Usually, it was. My feels like would say, Hey, feels like ninety five even though it's only eighty four and that's a big difference at it's the difference between pleasant and unpleasant and it would be right. And I was like I everything should be like this and then I ran into a couple of days in a row. Where it was wrong and it would be like it feels like ninety four and say is miserable and I said well, I gotta go out anyway I go out and it was beautiful and it was like and it's the re really the feels like was just in my opinion wrong didn't like it at all and I don't know what and I was talking to Ryan Jones, who's the developer of weather line one of my favorite third party weather. APPS. And he was like he just. It was one of our typical chats were either. They've to be really long and he was like I don't even get me started. And it basically, it was like I think it all the effort put into whether you could put into I. I would like to put into a new formula for feels like to actually get it right like share. That's how hard it can be and I concluded by the end of summer. That when feels like is wrong? Is Worse and therefore outweighs. The benefits of one feels like is better and at what I kind of want and none of my apps him to do is is to find the perfect balance of showing me both at once it's like seems seems like most apps you the show you one of the other or they show you one of them big and the other one is like small print at the bottom you know like weird. But it can be very wrong. It's that's that's my complaint with it is that sometimes it'll say feels like blank and it's like now actually feels like the actual temperature. And I. Mean. There are so many solutions to this that are tricky executives. Is it certainly it's not like perception is a hard thing to measure. Something like. Whether that makes some people like don't mind the humidity nearly as much as others and say that they're going to feel it differently right and I. Like the National Weather Service they have. Have you ever seen their graphical forecast? No, I don't think so so they have missing get to bring one up. So they have this forecast that is. Very very sort of. Like economic in terms of the way that it shows Shows you whether data and what I've always thought it's interesting with their economy of kind of like how they do. It is the heat index or the wind chill is is only shown when it's like beyond a certain amount different than the typical It's a typical amount different from than the actual temperature and I feel like there's certain maybe something in there that I think they may be sort of hitting on. But like they, it's like there's a certain balance where yes you only wanted to show when it's.

"I would recommend them even if they were not sponsored the show, it's great product. All right. So you've had. Do you think here's the here's another angle I've been going with do you think you would have had the idea for widgets myth if you hadn't already done watch with? That is A. That is an interesting question. I I don't think it would have ended up in the same way that I did that it automatically, it did because the thing that happened with watch myth that I. Like my goal with that, APP, was to try and make. Key essentially like let people make their watch faces like their own I wanted you to be able to control the typefaces, the colors, the data, how it was structured, how it was laid out like there's tremendous amount of like especially on the watch, it was something that I started to notice is that like I got really picky about exactly how I wanted things to look in a way that I care about more on my wrist because it's something that's Funny, it's a bit of a Cliche as a fashion thing, but it's like something I wanted to look good like I actually care like if I'm GonNa, have the date or the temperature shown on my watch face and I'm like going out to a nice going out to a nice dinner back. That was the thing we did and I wanted to look Nice like I'm a wearing my apple watch. Fancy wash because I want to. Close. My rings but. I wanted to look just the way I wanted to look and I think the result of that of that sort of that ultimate desire that in in the watch I was. Like I got so specific about it is that I went through probably like five or six different editor screens of how can I make this something that isn't like totally intractable to accommodate user That is that is a clear straightforward like way that I can create this complexity and give you so much choice and let you choose the typeface and let you choose the colors and let you choose exactly what is shown what's shown here, and what time it's like appearing on your screen and all of the things that ultimately like watchmen ended up being. It was beat with at that level of sort of sophistication that I needed to squeeze into something that was usable was something I. Don't know if I would have had the time or the. Idea about with widgets I'm if I hadn't gone through that for the watch, the watch is so much more constrained and it every little thing and every little tweak that investment that you make mattered more there so that when I was doing it and applying it to widgets, it made sense to just carry it over like I'd come up with a design that I feel like a lot of sense and was intuitive and give you that balance between power and flexibility that. Sort of applied immediately indirectly to wages and so but if I had if I hadn't sort of. Just have gone through all that process with watch Smith and with complications in mind it would have been hard for me to come up with it for something, which is where I feel like in my mind anyway originally, it's like I think that San Francisco rounded is the best which fondly probably like I think it just looks gorgeous on the home screen I think. And there's a very good chance that I would have just sort of sorted that and set that as the default. Even if I'd had the idea for an APP like Richard Smith and said like that's I. Think I think that just looks gorgeous and I would have missed out on the fact that while that is gorgeous and I think if you know if I Alan die sitting in my white studio designing widgets for Apple's built an APPS, that's probably what I'm going to use. The reality is once I. Had, my mind opens to the fact that it's like, what like what other funds are there other funds would look interesting? How can I add them into the application? Then you start to be like actually this is where the real magic starts to happen that you can make it look like it isn't just an apple widget that it isn't like there is a value a utility in standing out from the system in potentially even being slightly like conflicting with the way the system would just look that is that is a benefit and not a drawback. That's Like Why the APP originally seems like it really took off was because. That was the case be any created had so much flexibility and it had so much. Choice in it that you could really expect people felt like they could actually express themselves with it that they could find a font that suited them, and if you're a San, Francisco rounded person like great more power to you. But if you're a New York person or if you're you want some kind of some of the more silly and like Derek funds that I have in there or whatever that might be like great like you do that. If that makes you happy every time you pick up your phone, you want it to look like that. But I really don't think I would have necessarily had the serve the expectation or the imagination to invent this. I hadn't had to do it for the watch. If I hadn't had to do that for complications because they felt like a fashion item, they felt like something that had to have that level of customization. Anyway. and there wasn't competing with. Other, text most of the time that a lot of a lot of the watch faces it's just clock hands and so a lot of fun. I feel like look good on the Apple Watch in a way that or feel at home in any way on the Apple Watch in a way that that isn't quite the same on an iphone because there's so much other system texts that's always on the screen as well. I. Yeah. That's an interesting answer. I could see that and there was definitely something where you were playing around with. A custom watch faces even though it's not something you can do like it's not like apple let apps do it but you were playing around with with it anyway, knowing that it wasn't something. That you could ship as a feature in an APP but just what if we could, let's just play with it and Steven Troughton Smith s famed. Hacker and troublemaker on twitter. was was messing around with the same ideas. But he was the one I think he came up with in his likes plunking prowess was able to work out a way to hide the system time inside of a watch kit. APP which is typically not something that's possible that typically there's always the time shown in the top right corner of a watch, his show and he in his like I have no idea what he she shared the code publicly for how to do it and Some kind of weird. You know just dive deep down into the view hierarchy and find this one particular view that happens to be the clock and make it hidden or whatever it might be, and as soon as he had done that then it'd be like I always spent a good part of like three or four months just making custom watch faces became a hobby to do and I you. You can't publish them. They don't exist they're just. Watch APPS and you can. For Awhile. I actually used them as my main watch face because what I would do is if you start a workout inside of you know my little like custom watch face APP. It would continue it would remain on the screen even when the APP was. Brit. Lower your wrist and raise your wrist if a a workout APP running the workout APP is what shows on the screen rather than the clock and if you turn off the high heart rate mode typically like typically during a workout, it collects your heart rate like multiple times per second is continuous continuously monitoring..

"A, bigwig media molecule stepping down. This is Marie Davis Andrea over at Games Industry Dot Biz Media Molecule Co founder Alex Evans has announced his departure from Sony Studio. After thirteen years at the little big planet and dreams developer the technical director said on twitter that he wanted to take a break from the game developed from game development and explore other opportunities. Quote a few months ago. I. Did a bit of lockdown inspired soul-searching decided to step down from dreams. deb To dreams fan take a break from game to have a career. I've. Been Lucky enough to enjoy since I was a spotty fifteen year old he his tweets read media molecules are wonderful place. I can't imagine making games anywhere else but I wondered what else old Fart like me could do in this world I've been in the game deb bubble. So long I'm not yet sure what's next, what's next or even out there for someone like me He also reassured dreams fans about the title.

"I think so many more people are going to be interested in sleep tracking and are going to be aware of it. As they can do that it's GONNA increase overall the interest in sleep racking for you know APPs like mine and I can provide different insights and provide information about how your sleeping in a way that apple isn't showing. You that I can get a little bit more detail about the quality of your sleep or show you trends and. Information about what is what is a typical night look like for you and how you might be able to kind of make cheat make choices based on that information That's a great opportunity that I think I can have, and it's nice that apple is you know the data that they're providing their analysis about when you're asleep, they're just reading to the health APP and I can pull it in and use it to improve my sleep model because. There is the accessing data that I don't have access to and they're doing it throughout the Nike use that to even improve my own mile and I'm so overall. It seems like an win for for sleep tracker because they're not coming in with this big heavy handed approach that does everything. You could ever possibly imagine and kind of eliminate the need for anyone to you can think about using a third party APP. It's a really interesting approach. I wasn't expecting it either in it. What's interesting to me about it as you as you say is that it's really adjacent to the existing crop of sleep tracking APPs out there. I? mean. I don't think that there are pro that apple's approach really is like any other sleep tracking APPs at least I've tried. So that is that's that's an interesting path for them to go down you, David, I. Want to thank you for joining us today. It's been great talking to you about all this. I mean There's a lot of interesting things coming this fall and it sounds like you've really got your your hands busy this summer so. Thanks for thanks for being on. Times my pleasure Dave, where could people find you online if they want to follow your work? Sure. So I mean the best place is probably you can follow me on twitter I'm underscore David Smith there or have a read a blog where I post kind of all my new applications and things I work on. That's David Smith Dot Org are at great and I want to thank our sponsors again for this episode, and that is concepts and sit down start up a podcast from Zen desk.

"So I think from Tango perspective, it's just trying to. Deal with that size and make it look good and reasonable, and then I, think the other challenge is the same as the one that I faced on the watch. But I'm I benefit from my experience. There is just there's all the same challenges around having data be kept up to date and serve live and active, and showing you the correct data at the correct time, and some of that is just always going to be a challenge that some of the things that I'm running into are like. If you, if I if I one of my budget's calendar widget that shows you your your your upcoming events, and if you go to you change your calendar, me being able to show that at that change in a timely way is just difficult because the nature of of of that change that it's entirely unpredictable. I can't know when you did it and there's no sort of system notification that I'm necessarily going to get woken up to be told about, and so there's just a lot of. Of. Private. After blend together, a lot of different approaches to try and be aware of that change in in in a way that isn't like constantly. Sort of turning up turning through the users battery by constantly in the background being like to the calendar change to the calendar, change the calendar, right, and so those I think are the biggest technical challenges and a lot of those just because it's myth is a much more. kind of it's it's it's it's going for all of the data and it's not something that is just doing one thing or providing a just a view into a particular data stack where you could use some push. And some of the other technologies that would allow you to have that kind of real time changing. But I think generally technically, it's not actually it's been a lot more straightforward than than certainly than it was originally Building Watch Smith and I think Y-. Iowa. is also just a nice. It's. It's such a mature platform to be working on that it's just really a a sort of a to be able to run it on their from just it's like my phone eleven is super super fast and does all the things I want and it's really A pleasant place to work in a way that the watch can sometimes you know if I'm doing development on a series three Apple Watch, like things take a lot longer. Than I would like them to right. Right. You know I guess big picture. One thing that some of what you've said raises is a question in my mind is whether the time based timeline based approach to widgets is the right one I know I know we're still pretty early in the Betas, but I've I've noticed some of apple's including like the weather widget. They'll be times when it's middle of the afternoon, it still showing me the weather from like six. Am when I first got out of bed is that you think that's the right approach, the timeline based one. So I think the timeline based approach is. I, think it's probably the right approach, but it's going to have consequences that that the because they'll the challenges. Still the alternative version is that apple is like the alternative version would be something typically wear it. You know you rather than providing data into the future whenever this system wants data, it asks you for it and you have that kind of like A. The system is pulling that data out of the application, rather than the APP is pushing this out into the future, and but the nature of any kind of that approach is that there's always going to be latency and there's always going to be. Sort of work that is hard to predict, and that is going to be difficult from a performance perspective that that's just the nature of that I. Think Apple is serve rightly taking the approach that. they want to. Their airing on the side of performance and predictability rather than something that could necessarily be always up to date served by definition and. I, get it and I think I mean it. It's limited choice, but I think on balance, it's probably the right choice in it. You know it certainly is something that they're going into with a lot of experience on the watch. They know how it works there, and they know they know the the downsides and I think for most applications. It's not going to be a downside that is very problematic, and I, think especially, because I o s has such a broader range of capabilities from it from a performance perspective can dial up how conservative it is a way. They can be much less conservative than they are on the watch, and so one thing that I've definitely noticed in I was fourteen, and this is to change changes from Beta two Beta. But the general sense seems to be that if I ask the system to refresh my timeline on a regular basis that I get very regular updates. In a way that on the watch that was much more unpredictable, and there are certainly times where especially if you start to get into a low battery situation on your watch you would never be updated ever again and like it's just you just whatever data provided is what system show forever whereas I've seen that much less often on the phone and it Kinda makes sense that the phone is just they're so much more powerful. They have such such larger batteries and so I think the system is able to be much more aggressive in the way that it schedules things I? Think. But this approach scale so much better than the alternative where if you imagine a screen where? Like I'm trying to think how many widgets you could have at any one time. You could probably have apps what just from six different APPS on screen, and you can have an unlimited number of them. Sort of live on your home screen. Anyone time served the thought of them having in order for British show data for them to have to bring. Bring up all of those APPS, essentially launch them concurrently so that you would have six different applications running at the same time. All doing whatever it is, they need to do to get data seems largely untenable would probably ver very quickly lead to other problems Whereas this way they can launch essentially most of the widget updating is happening in the background. Background not concurrently I imagine they. You know they refreshed one widget, and then they refreshed the next week and they refresh the next week and all of those updates might happen within five seconds, but it never had to refresh them all bring them all up at the same time in at least to all kinds of memory benefits, and like the more I've kind of gotten used to this I. Think this is the approach that they had to take from a technical reason, and I think overall is a reasonable approach. It's not ideal. Ideally, the APPS are always running all the time and it takes in, they can do all things at all, but that kind of only really would make sense to me. In a context where you didn't have to care about performance or battery, which is definitely not the case on was. So they are wanNA, closest conversation by talking to you about sleep tracking. So W, W C apple announced to one of the new watch west seven features that also, of course, in US component bolting sleep tracking, and it's integrated with the health and you get some features on the watch. You have sleep on the watch. You have a sleep mode on the IPHONE, you have wind down shortcuts and all of that stuff. So you wrote.

"Another great day here at APP store is just kind of hanging out and I really enjoyed our last interview. He did with Ski Rambo that was a lot of fun and I think listeners seemed to enjoy it too based on the feedback. Ruben. Getting on twitter. So we thought you know today we do another That's a good idea especially because we. All these developers and people that we know. We haven't gotten a chance to see them in person this year. So you know at least we can do the podcast together and that's not a replacement for the actual event and BMW WGC talking to each other in person. But will you know will still a pretty, pretty good replacement I would say, yeah, the. The further we get into the summer the more I feel that that effective not have having had any opportunity to talk to people and lots of people we've talked to a few people, but not a lot. So but today we are going to be speaking with David Smith. As you may end, you may know David as underscore David Smith on twitter. Dave is the the maker of Watch Smith and pedometer plus plus whole bunch of other APPs to I mean sleep plus plus cow zones in a bunch of others a welcome to the show Dave. Great. Thank you for having me. Dave, I would just launch right in and start talking about watch us because we WANNA to talk I. If you today I one of really focus on watch os in a little swift, you I and and then get into widgets which we talked about a little bit last week too. But I watched wes. You've been doing watch developments since the very beginning since the very first Apple Watch, and that's changed quite a bit over the time and I was wondering if you could kind of walk me through how that's changed for you as a developer and kind of where things are today compared to those early days. Share mean the very first version of watch. Os. The. where this weird hybrid system or in that first generation they the actual APP itself would run on your phone and it's you. I would be projected onto the watch, and so they were all kinds of weird limitations and performance issues and just in general, it was very strange situation that all the actual performance was a- actual. APP. was on the phone and then was being center over, and then they replaced that and we did on device I'm extensions, but it's still was built if this technology called watch kit which. is a very kind. Lightweight, not particularly capable Ui and interaction system, and this is why in general important in in watch os the very few things like it did serve dynamic animations or user interaction that it's primarily just a static list with a button and you hit a button and it goes to another screen or a change of something, and it's very hard to do any kind of kind of more dynamic thing, and that's it got better over time. But in general that was the state of of watch os all the way through to watch a six. which is last year's a deputy seat, the introduced swift Y, and specifically swift July came to the watch, and it allowed for the first time us to build watch applications that were sort of dynamic and rich and interactive and. In many ways are just the same as I was writing. The application for an iphone or an ipad or a MAC or whatever? Any kind of platform? There's no limitation placed on it sort of externally, and then that is continue to sort of improve and get better and in seven swift you I is now everywhere like he can use. To, make complications this issue, I system itself on the APP, itself has gotten a lot better especially with the new changes that they're doing where the inner sense watching seven force touch has gone away and so There's a lot of neat afford ince's and closer things that they do in July to make that process sort of easier and better, and now we're in a place where you can build a full rich sort of dynamic application on the watch and I can share components with the. iphone, it's swift is the same both platforms, and so it's been a really nice place now where it's like, it doesn't watch feels just like. Sort of a peer platform to all the other apple platforms rather than feeling like kind of this weird underpowered subside. Hobby project. It feels just to just full enrich Nike in a lot of applications that have been working on this summer. It's really great. Just can I have the same the same swift code that's running across all of them, and so I have this great sort of it's just serve I can do so much more than I was ever able to you back in those in his early watch one.

"That's you don't have the Surf Y- overhead of travel costs associated with it. That can also really help. Make me at exit of accessible people so I'll just steal it all. Just offer my backyard for relay con. Back yeah a bunch of people in there. And then we can all go to the beach afterwards data. That's that sounds very nice all right then, so David let's turn to to your work. Your well well known IOS developer, but I feel like your work has really. Focused on, watch os more and more over the year. So would you mind giving listeners kind of on your roster? Sure so I think that is an accurate sort of interpretation of my interests as a reason so I'm kind of Forbid for better and worse known for having developed lots and lots of APPS I. Think at this point. The last count them up. I have shipped something like sixty three. Caps to the APP stores over the last eleven twelve years. And most of them failed, but a handful of them haven't and a recently, but I think I've been able to kind of coalesce around I think. I have a lot of experience around health and fitness, and around the Apple Watch and so my main APPs right now our pipe plus and sleepless, plus which is a step, counter and asleep tracker. First and foremost. And then I recently have also been getting into some more utility type of. Recently Called Watch myth, which is like super customizable complication, system, or have a cal zones, which is A. Time zone oriented calendar and sort of associated with a lot of actually complications engages with their and those are my main things and I have kind of these. Older projects, your side things like I have a workout APP or a moon complication, APP, or actually runny are sinking system. which is just you know we see? This point feels a little bit off brand in some ways, but it's like something I. Use every day, so I'll just keep going. That's feed wrangler. I Miss Subscriber and it's. It's an excellent service great. Yeah, like it's just one of those things at the nature of RSS is delightfully. It doesn't change very much, so like every, and then I have to go in and do some work, but like RSS is very much the same thing that it was like a decade ago, so I can just keep that running, and it works well, but like certainly my focus and it's like ever since five years ago when the Apple Watch, I came out I. I just saw it as a platform. That I I don't know like I have a passion for I. Really Enjoy making it and I think I also helps that so when I started working on pedometer, plus plus in getting into step counting was the first time I ever had the experience of making health and fitness related APP, and the experience of that is just so rewarding in a way that all my other projects had never really have been there were i. can you know when you get a? Customer feedback that says like I. Your App was instrumental in me recovering from an injury or recovering from an illness or helps me, you know like lose fifty pounds and. Like I. It's the kind of feedback as much as I like to think that you know my calendar widgets are changing the world like they're not affecting people's lives in nearly the same way, and so I think as soon as I saw the Apple Watch and I had that experience on the iphone step counting. It's like this is a platform that I think I want to invest myself into that. I wanted to really be an expert in, and it's been a bumpy road like watch. Os has gone through all kinds of really interesting in weird churns along the way, but. I feel like it's a place that I really enjoy working and I like the impact that it can have and so that's where I'm going to keep focusing. I expect most of the summer like my efforts are going to be on watch west. Trying to push the boundaries and take advantage of the things that apple is opening up there for me so I can make my step counting. Miceli tracking my. widgets Mike timezone stuff, all of those all those features, more rich and more capable, but that's like where I love going. That's kind of where I think. I'm settling into as I found. My groove as developer is, if I make sort of primarily health and fitness, related things primarily focused on the Apple Watch. It seems like a great niche that I've kind of been able to focus into I have both. worked out his business as well as it's also been really rewarding, kind of ESA just as a person, but I would argue that you're healthy. You go beyond health and fitness. I feel like you almost the watch expert for last year. I mean if you go to W. W. Seeing you David Smith walking around. He's the guy that has to apple watches on. You know and the watch. Smith is a great example for me. It's not a health and fitness related up, but it is a tremendous improvement to the idea of complications on the apple, watch me for the longest time. I just wanted something that could give me today's date that fifty year old is could see. Made this APP where you can customize exactly what the complication looks like, and then you top it a whole bunch of other stuff happens and I I I WanNa talk to you later today as we get deeper in the outline about what the idea of multiple complications does because I feel like you're the guy. And when I installed on my watch him, thinking I gotta get an email. The David because I want to see what he's doing. And I think that's that's certainly true and I think it's. It's I I. Just Love the way I love the APP watch. I mean it's bit of a joke. I am Con- I've I've entered into phase of summer where I will have at least two apple watches on me at all times, both so so I can run the data's and make sure that I understand what's going on and then there. There it is not uncommon in my in my household for me to have three or four apple watches on my wrist. Because many of the things you can't test except for by doing something if I want to test workout mode I have to do a workout where I wanNA testimony sleep I need to sleep with my watch on, and so if I only get one shot at it I, WanNa Kinda. Data collection so I'll sometimes look quite silly with my like you know three or.
A Developer's Summer, with Underscore David Smith
"Hello everyone this is David sparks joined by my fellow co-hosts Mr. Stephen Hackett I Stephen Hey David. How are you good I feel like this week is kind of putting the capper on our W. WDC coverage. Finished up last week, we were able to talk about quite a bit during the during ww see, and then we talked about our Betas last week this week. We thought we bring in somebody who has a unique and interesting perspective on it. Welcome back to the show David Smith. You it's A. It's a pleasure to be here I mean I was? It's an honor to be on power users so I'm glad to be able to kind of come in gas lend a developer perspective to all the announcements that we just had. Thinking that you'd be the perfect guest for it by pay, we just had him on and then I looked twenty seventeen, so. I don't know what happened there in my head, but The you know David you were telling me before the show started. How many wwe cs have you participated in a believe? This is number twelve for me and my first one is in two thousand and nine, and I've been essentially attended in some form ever ever since so it's been like this regular fixture in my family that as far as like in which. That's longer than my children have. Our old, so like from their perspective, daddy always disappears for a week in June like that's just a part of a part of life that I'm sure they expect happens to every father in the world. They just June is when they go to California, but that's. It was a very unusual year to just actually just stay at home and be here, but sort of not here. kind of station in the basement to a just a after shift myself to California time, and then also just there's so much to do. But generally speaking, it was definitely a different year than all the others that I've had the privilege of experiencing. As, someone who's been W. DC with you? I think we one year we stay together and the relay Commun-. The but I feel like you are somebody that really always. My observation takes advantage of WBZ. You're always hustling to get to meetings and and get the content and I feel like you are in my mind for lack of a better term, a lunch pail developer just show up and you get the work done, and I've always appreciate that about you. So, let's talk, you know. You watched it from home this year I guess That was that. It was different I. Mean on the one hand. It was kind of Nice to be able to like my wife set next to me on the Sofa and we questioned on our TV, and it was. It was kind of Nice to share that with her. Because while we sometimes, we'll do that for things like phone announcements, or you know other apple events throughout the year when I'm not in California You know she's heard me talk about WDC many times and WC announcements are the ones that I like kind of lose my mind and be super excited, and like it's in a way that is unusual that it's not. As to you know with an iphone announcement because a cool new camera that's kind of clear and accessible, but like I'm losing my mind over some minor thing that they just mentioned and she has no idea and it was kind of a fun thing. I think for us to be to share that But it was definitely a bit odd to. Then just like just like. I watched the Hino, and then I go and sit at my at my regular, my regular office and I can download all the Betas, and like get started right away rather than like frantically trying to eat like an awful box lunch in between the keynote in the state of the Union and then like sometime later somehow try and get the. Betas installed over Chino potentially and not so reliable Wi fi, and so like it was definitely a very different Monday for WGC than I'm used to though I kind of liked it like it was kind of Nice I felt like I was super productive like in a very intense way which? Definitely took the weekend to recover from, but it was. It was different, but in a good way I, think is the best summary for how serve the General Rafeal if WGC was for me. The general take wagon talking to developer friends. It's like it was a more more is week easier to get information easier to manage Betas and find out what exactly what's going on. You're not kind of in the thick of it. But it was less useful of direct access to apple engineers. Maybe I'd say from my experience like they had labs this year. Which is alive that typically WGC they have these big sessions where apple engineers are available to attendees who go into, ask your questions, which is the one time of year typically where you're able to interact with an apple engineer, because typically they're locked. Locked away in Cupertino and can talk about anything related to what they're working on, but this one week they get let out in are allowed to do that. And I was very curious to see what they did for. The labs experience this year and worked well like I think I attended five or six lives, and they were just kind of like voice. Conference calls I could share I could share my screen to to the call if I had some code I needed to show them or something. I wanted them to kind of look at and by and large. That process was actually very efficient, and from the kind of likes to the way they structured. It is I mean they were available to anyone who had a pay developer account so I. Don't Know How many people that is in the world, but it is almost certainly. Probably millions if not. Like tens of millions and it was just kind of you signed up. You submitted a question, and they had of reviewed them the day before and assigned to a lab based on as like, do you? Did you actually see Mike? You had a reason a question. That's useful and. Effective to answer, and it was to the asking esque, the right lab, or the right place and feuded, both those things like I was able to get my labs, and got my questions answered, and so that was actually kind of cool. I think only part. I missed was really like. You're talking about the sexting at the the relay commune. Having that kind of that sense of community and being around other people. Like the idea. Of being on site in San Jose was something that I certainly missed this year, and that's a tricky thing to quantify 'cause i. think in most other ways. The Co like the conference was better for being virtual like the session videos were better, and they were more accessible in the sense that they are available immediately to everybody they all have full transcripts that are searchable and so are accessible, just both from an ex. A accessibility perspective of perse people for people for whom listening to video is difficult. They have the transcript immediately available, and they can do. Watch close captioning as Equally accessible to everybody irrespective, if you have the means and the resources and the ability to go to saint, say or not you just if you have an Internet connection, you have exactly the same connection, and then like all the content was super polished

"The producers and they said. You should go do this. Because you know we're in our last set And we're on the lot here at paramount and go do that and did you have to bring run addressing with you. Well the thought was that I would definitely take things with me to to New Orleans so I got hired I was I finished nowhere. Land Bill Bill went to New Orleans. I went down there very briefly for a few days and then I came back to La and finish nowhere land and wrapped and I never find everything in New Orleans so I. I spent a week here show after Norway land. I spent a are imagine that I spent a week in town and I went around to see what was available and everything that I thought that I would like to have was tagged by another show. I think I talked to you at the time because you were going to Winnie at La Circus right right. And I think I don't remember what but I just remember talking with you ending talking to David Smith. I don't know if it was something that we both want interest. But I remember talking to you about La Circus or something about like all of that. A The serendipity we I speak of all the time but but if there's one show that's gearing up this always one or two other shows hot on the heels that need exactly the same thing. Every school drama has red chairs out for some reason craziness so Cirque DU freak. I loved working on it. it was very operatic and feel and it was very theatrical and I feel like for me. It's the movie that the the movie that I've done that. I feel that I've put a lot of myself in because there are a lot of my personal likes and dislikes in it and also it. It is sort of like a combination or combination of my various extra work experiences and and likes at some and also from La. I got to take to drapery people with me to New Orleans. I took a lead man. I took a buyer And I saw and I took several guys As gang bosses to eight. Eighty people atypical. That was before right just right before the that the begin. Yes Yep Yep Yep were while they were available and the time. It was a little hard to find people and New Orleans hoover who were young starting that people were like going and what was Great Fun. Is THAT INDEED? You know it it. The premise of the of the movie was that It was a traveling freak. Show and so all of the Habitats Were theoretically on truck beds or could be folded up or pulled by trailers or whatever and it was mobile and They were pretty elaborate and they were great fun and was terrific. So vivid was great. I don't think we saw a lot of it in the movie. Unfortunately it's shot a little too tight. Think draper that all of lots of drapery I. I used to have a huge reputation for drapery and and of course. Unfortunately drapery means money. But you know I love Cirque du Freak. I love it. Now that was like the fourth or fifth time you had worked with him. I mean after working with 'cause I don't know I've worked with designers again and again but not on films but do you still have to even talk about all. Yeah and go is a great to have in fact. I had lunch with bill last week and I said I WANNA do one more movie. You know I really want to do something with you. so And of course we gotta sink when I got ill and I couldn't travel and anyway I'm fine now and and hopefully something will come along and we'll work but he's been doing a lot of work in Canada and it makes it a little difficult but I think at what happened was I I in our relationship. We've never had any. We've never had any frustration with each other that I can sell. We've never we've never had an argument as such I even high arguments. I mean there's some talk back every now and then are you. Are you sure when you really need that right but but I think we're pretty respectful about each other and and I know that his his personal likes are a little different than mine? So we we. We serve temporary each other very nicely. I tend to do things a little bit more cluttered than than he would sometimes do them. And so sometimes there's a little bit of a nice tension about. Can we pull somebody out can we? You know you need that to edit each other and I think when you have a designer that you're in sync with you're not really in sync with them you're really just bouncing off of each other and and I always say look I thought of ninety percent of things and you came in with the other two that I forgot. I can't think of anything or you know what I mean. I I got fifty percent. You got it's whatever it is. I believe a designer to WHO's going to collaborate and edit with me and I enjoy that I enjoy no yup I think I like the collaborative effort and I think with ONS. I don't I think we're very collaborative bill and I and and we know yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean I think you know and yeah and crazy stupid. Love was part of that which was really just an incredible experience. One of the nicest. Yeah that and and in good company where two of the nicest extremes is working on a movie and you did the period piece lovelace. I did a research return for that. They're actually seen the film as a young man and I knew a little bit about. I knew a little bit about that after I moved to New York but Again there was an incredible documentary and I and I thought what are we going to do? Because there's a inside deep throat But now I know in. Yeah and it's a really good documentary That was a really I low budget movie and I think really might only one movie. David I mean well I mean this? This is this is when the tier system had begun to come in. And so this was I think like Tier One So it was just under ten million bloody hard Mahdi hard and and bill came up with twenty grand or something it was. It was really low and we did ninety nine percent of that movie. We did on location and And in Long Beach and we took over a motel and we built some sets inside the motel and we worked in the area around the motel on. I think we shot the whole thing and less than you know four weeks five weeks. It was very quick I it was really hard. It was hard. It was hard and it's very hard if you have to go long beach you're doing a period show and you can't come back and do two round trips with the trump my whole day and and we only had one truck and and it was hard to get the producers to They counted I. We had worked with the accountant on A couple of other movies. poets movies and Us Yeah Good. If they're happy to see you got And I you know budgets. Doing low-budget is hard. And and for me. It's hard not to spend money and not to do things really right when you know it. I've gotten more. I've gotten better about asking for favors or you know trying to to make package deals Because I didn't do any of that until fairly recently and I'm not sure a lot of people used to do that. I think it was just When I came into the business their producers who knew how much it was gonna cost and so you just did it The first one my first movie in New York I never had a budget. The producer would come and say we spent too much on that last set. We need to pull back here on this and everybody did that. Take it as Show when you have it I spend it and they save up famous. Yup I if you need to charge this and that and but I'm GonNa ask certain favors.

I kinda I like it. I mean I binge it because I think the sets are so good. I mean the production value. I think of of these sentences I. I'm kind of fascinated that they're putting so much money into it because I don't find that the stories that could it's very simple if you're looking for a simple thing to binge that's it it's not I'm not I think every episode is going to get better and then it doesn't but then but then the lead you to think that the next episode is going to get better. They're good at that. I would say but I. I've binged that we binge that in the two days so yeah sick Sick with babies is on cool. I gotta say that but We're getting better. It's going to be fine so happy new year to everyone. And thank you again for all your support this year looking forward to a full twenty twenty of new episodes. GonNa try to get better at the social media postings and facebook updates. I'm really bad at that. I'm sorry and bad tooting my own horn. All I really do is the email blasts and I hope you're getting that if you want to if you not unsubscribe. I'm totally fine with that. I will not be offended But I'm really proud of all the interviews. We did this year and I'm so thankful that people have given their time to this and I'm learning from everyone and I hope you are too. I can't promise I won't screw up the audio again but I keep so you know so here is part. Two of my interview with set decorator David Smith and to be honest. The man has so much to say. And it's all Jim's all gems It was really hard to edit this interview. He had a wonderful career in TV and film and he's just gone strong in this interview. We get into some of his specific projects like his work on the his first film shop girl How worked with Nancy Meyers on the holiday. Which I'm sure you might have Even watched this holiday season working with the same people the same production designer for twelve projects. Which that's that's a milestone in itself that's unbelievable and Working on locations for films like the last holiday and Vampires apprentice. He got his first computer in two thousand six. I'm not joking so get ready for that. He's also been working as an additional set decorator on projects like ARGO. Gone Girl Vice and unbelievable So we talk about how to construct the work with the other decorator and Dividing up the project talks a lot about budgeting and working deals with prop houses and Working budget with the producer which it's a give and take with budget with budgets in our in our field. I mean it's tricky because there's variables at sometimes you can't control location work or how many days are gonNA shoot the sets and you have to budget for that. And it's real numbers that they the producers you know need to have so that's that's always a tricky thing in in our profession and I hope you enjoy. Let me ask you this. You did twelve fourteen films with Bill Arnold right you did recently dirty grandpa lovely little fuckers crazy stupid love. Shaq girl not and nine others. I mean can you talk about like working with someone? That much No no not not at all I I I. I met bill He was Janine Open Lawns Art Director and he did he was from Chicago. Are HE WORKED IN CHICAGO IN FROM CHICAGO? He and his wife came out here But I I met him because we did the pilot in the early nineties of La Law. I mean I'm sorry. L. A. Confidential and J heart and both Rosemary. Brandenburg HAD RECOMMENDED ME TO BILL. And he's named dropping other decorators was recommend you well only because. I think that's how we all got that's how we get jobs and that's one asset to being an. Sds is that that you got to know people and people you know. Yeah absolutely and we don't really often work together as decorators. It's beginning to happen a little bit more now which is good but anyway so so I met bill on and we did a pilot and be hit it off and then I think we might have done one other pilot and then we did the first film that we did together with shop girl which I love which was fabulous experience. Nazi Martin. Really the you know. It was really interesting. Because Steve Martin was producer on that as well as having written the the Novella and Based on his real life But he I think he was very compartmentalized while was doing this and so he was the actor of we saw it none of his other hats where being Lorne during this And we had a really interesting director by the name of an an tucker and It was Nice. It was just a really nice experience in town and You know the story was written for socks and sacks win didn't WanNa play ball I mean on Neiman. Marcus didn't want it was written for Neiman. Marcus because she worked at the glove counter at Neiman Marcus theoretically in the story and Neiman didn't WanNa play and so he ended up shooting at Saks and we took over the second the men's department and we turn that into the the formal the gowns area and where the shop counter was. It was fairly short. Time is maybe thirty days thirty five days and not as huge budget practical much many locations just changing. Yeah we built. We built We built the tour bus We did and we did that. The cabin or the sleeping area of that But most of it was location work. Yeah Yeah Yeah so. That was your first. That was my first movie and then the next movie I and and at that time I had just from. I done a TV show and It was shutting down and I bought one of the apple computers on that and I bought Orange Clam Shell and so I had that. That was the first time that I had a computer. And when we finished shop girl he said to me our next movie which is good to hear a designer. Our next movie You gotta get a better computer. The next movie that we did was a movie. Called last holiday Queen Latifah and It ended up shooting For Twenty twenty some odd days in New Orleans and then we went to the Czech Republic And the show had originally been written it it. It was an adoption of another movie And the script had been written for East La and Switzerland and so because of tax credits We did it here. I mean we went to New Orleans at for L. A. And change the location to La. And then we went to the Czech Republic and that was great fun. Good time no no but but I but I got a new computer and I got. I got a smartphone. I got a new phone and I got a digital camera. Well I mean I'm looking at. It was two thousand six Bert. You're really I was slow. Slow where are you still using? Polaroid's what we do know one hour photo one hour photo I know and then half hour photo and then it would be like print never the younger and you go through in cartridges. Like a dozen a day and ridiculous and then I know I'm going to skip over to ask about the holiday dishonesty about the staircase murders. All I have was obsessed with that documentary and all of the little updates and everything. So did you get to meet Michael now. No he was imprisoned out so much I didn't know if he had any sort of like input or anything. No no in fact I think they walked on a little bit eggshells. I saw the documentary and I thought we're going to do a dramatized version of it because the documentaries pretty scary and really good but The documents are staircase murders happened.

Running into debt: Argentinas new president
"He won a decisive victory. In October's election be faces urgent economic problems. Argentina has inflation over fifty percent rising poverty and sputtering relationship with the International Monetary Fund which gave its biggest ever loan to the country last year. The new president has a high profile. Deputy no got been sick. Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirschner no relation. She is a former president from the parents movement movement whose populist policies hobbled the economy for years she also faces legal troubles accused of numerous corruption charges that she denies as the Fernandez duo take office. How will they govern some hope for pragmatism others? Fear more parents populism now that the two have named their cabinet habit picture is forming of how the new era might look the tablet. Looks like a mixture of how shall I put it back to the future and then then some new faces David Smith reports for the economist from Argentina most strikingly the Treasury minister. This is Martin Guzman and and this is very much a new face. A young economist coming home to Argentina from Columbia University in New York and a fellow who clearly believes that Argentina has to grow to return to recovery. I at home before this country can pay. Its its many debts abroad. And so aside from Mr Guzman who who's going to be in the cabinet whose whose noteworthy. Oh I think we have to look at a raft of appointments the clearly. Hi The influence of Christina fantastic. And in this cabinet you can see in major ministries in those posts. We are seeing very much members of live the loyal old God and how centers for her so if a lot of these appointees are. Let's call them old friends. I mean she is still under under indictment right a dvd these appoint appointees will essentially help her with the various legal trouble so I think there's an obvious move on the part of the new government onto and the new president. Alberto Fernandez made it very clear that he believes that Cristina Fernandez has been under political persecution along with others from her former government. Mont and one extremely significant Appointment Jason is that of Attorney General and the new attorney general is one color sunny a very very close aide to former President Cristina Fernandez de Gish Data and a man who only austere was in jail himself because he was under indictment amount for an alleged role in an alleged cover up of a deal that she is president signed with Iran. Back in two thousand thirteen eighteen and Zanini like Cristina Fernandez. They all deny the charges against them. So I think in the the makeup of this new government we have a fairly clear path for the former president and the people around her from that government to feel that they will not be going going to jail. So you say that these these all of these appointments point to a kind of as you say back to the future situation I mean what does that mean. Do you think for the economy. There's this looming. IMF math flown and some threat that it won't be paid for for some time. How do you think this government will deal with the economic mess Argentina? Well I think on the economic front we have to to see that about offend is. The new president is very much going to be taking charge of that one. And that's an important distinction here Jason. Because because clearly around him. He's building a team that is his and not necessarily loyal took Cristina Fernandez and therefore what we're seeing. There is very much the idea that Argentina understands that the new world order is is dramatically different and they have to think differently now. What I'm understanding is is that the new economic team is very much focused on growth at home in order to be able to pay its debts abroad? That's not a new argument. They will be used to that one however I think the the focus is not how we for example default remember this this comes through defaulted in two thousand one and the early period of the Kushner's was very much wedded to the idea of default. No I think this government onto saying that it wants to pay its debts. It wants to return to recovery. Eight is focused on how it can get that job done. The question is how much time will it need. And how long will it be able to keep the domestic crisis as it were in control. One of the arguments I'm hearing from the new economic economic team is the please you have to help us. Because we have to contain this crisis in terms of inflation in terms of rising unemployment in terms of poverty in terms of recession because the alternative potentially is the crisis on the streets. All I think there is a recognition that on the economic crisis. This government apparent is government has to show the world that is thinking anew and thinking differently about how to get out of
