To that end apple care plus we'll be available for home pod. Many. A piece from macrumors says, that will run buyers fifteen bucks. When Tim Cook was back on camera, he took a moment to Brag on iphones past noting the iphone eleven has been the number one smartphone in the world since its launch and that I phone has led the industry in customer satisfaction every year since it's Get ready to hate all of them as the iphone twelve line makes the scene bringing with it five G. Connectivity. Which one? All of them. Had Been Rumored Apple announced four iphone phone twelve models and has had also been rumored. Each can support five G.. Cook says, five G. Brings A new level of performance for downloads UPLOADS, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real time interactivity, and more. The CEO says five Jia superfast, which he actually pitched as a security feature speeds are so good. He says you'll be less tempted to sign on the public WIFI limiting exposure to the dangers that lurk there. Every decade brings new technology that provides a step change in what we can do with iphone said Cook. Today. A new era begins for iphone. Today we're bringing by G. to phone. Then began the verizon commercial. Hans Fest Berg Chairman and CEO. Verizon took to the stage talk about big reds five G. offering. Verizon's by ultra wideband with large quantities of millimeter wave access will be live and sixty cities across the US by the end of this year. In ideal conditions, Best Burg says the carriers seen four gigabits down and two hundred megabits up. The four gigabits is kind of funny own Antonio Guy says an ideal conditions. Well it doesn't sound like you're getting four GIGA beds but we'll get, him. The other thing best Burger announced was flipping the switch on Verizon's extensive five gene nationwide network. That apparently went live yesterday. Boy would I like to know the terms of the deal worked out between, that bill and Verizon? Emphasis on particular carrier. I did not see coming. Now I said iphone twelve comes in four models here the rumor mill rang true. The phones are iphone twelve iphone twelve many iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro, Max. Starting with iphone twelve, remember the squared off edges of iphone Four. The new design returns us to that. Squared edges that meet flush with the devices front and back glass the front classes something special though. Working with corning delay, this display is protected by what apple. Calls Ceramic. Shield. It is said by the company to be tougher than any other smartphone class with four times better dropped performance than iphone eleven. The display it's protecting is apple custom Ole ed providing truer blacks, better contrast and two times the pixels iphone eleven or four, hundred, sixty pixels per inch. While that displays the same six point one inches iphone eleven, apple shrank the surrounding enough to make iphone. Eleven percent than her fifteen percent smaller and sixteen percent lighter than iphone. Eleven Choice of colors is not huge but they are pretty. With options and black. White Product Red Green. And blue that. Does things for me. I shouldn't talk about in mixed company. The candy coating is nice. Let's talk about. It's Chewy. Chocolate center starting with the phones five Genus Apple says, iphone twelve has the most five G. bands of any smartphone for better performance in more places. Additionally the company's silicon, the software approach. Let's apple make the best use of available five G. including choosing to not use five. G.. It sounds like iphone defaults to lt e tapping into five G. when it's both necessary and available. That is great for power consumption according to the company. Apples tested the new phones on over one hundred carriers and over thirty regions. In ideal conditions iphone twelve gets up to three point five gigabits on. which is what makes the Brian Bragging about four gigabytes down kind of funny yesterday. It does support millimeter wave those so. got that going for it. As, for the phones on workings iphone twelve powered by apple's a fourteen bionic, the first phone powered by the five nanometer processor technology packing eleven point eight billion transistors roughly forty percent more than eight thirteen. A six core CPU that's up to fifty percent faster than last year's phone and a four core GPU graphics that are up to fifty percent faster than last year's model. Machine learning also gets a boost iphone, twelve packs of sixteen coordinator and Gen that's up to eighty percent faster than iphone eleven capable of eleven, trillion operations per second. Company bragged on Games claiming console quality for the phone. To Demonstrate and executive from riot games showed off League of legends wild rift a mobile, only game due out later this year. Well phone twelve is not the phone photographers would choose. There's plenty of improvement and it's cameras. Apple says the phone has a twelve megapixel ultra wide camera and twelve megapixel wide camera. It said the sport, the fastest aperture yet it also features a seven element lens that apple says offers twenty-seven percent improvement in low light performance. Mag Save is an internal thing. Rather than a name for a connector is in days of old MAG. Safe today is a collection of magnets and charging elements that help line up the phone for proper charging. When it's not charging those magnets go to work holding on cases and wallets and third party stuff. Apple expects a thriving ecosystem of third party doodads take advantage of the newly introduced MAG. Safe. Ness. Mag Safety. Safe thing. Anyway. It's a thing built into iphone twelve. Every model in the line. Now's probably phone twelve many. Except for the size, you can take everything I've said so far about iphone twelve and play it back. iphone twelve many has the same specs as iphone twelve though in a slightly smaller size. The company says the mini is smaller and lighter than four point seven inch models like iphone eight but with a bigger five point four inch display. Apple says, this one is the smallest thinnest and lightest five G. phone. In the world. Talking about last night with Frederik, Van Johnson, and a few other folks on Chuck joiners Mac. Voices. We came to the conclusion that the pro phones for two groups, people who wanna spend as much money as they can afford. Or people who really care about the camera. There's nothing wrong with the camera functionality and the iphone twelve or iphone twelve many. Unless you count they're not being as high end as the camera on the high end. No I'm not a high end photo guy. So there was a lot set around iphone twelve pro, an iphone twelve pro Max that escapes me. The camera on iphone twelve pro boxes said by apple to have a sixty five millimeter focal length from fifty two millimeter focal length and last year's counterpart. It's got five times optical zoom range and the set to support an eighty seven percent improvement in low light versus last year's top of the pro line. I do know enough to be impressed by one thing. The pro line can shoot an apple pro raw. or it will be able to with a software update. Later, this year photographers will also be able to edit those images. Directly, in the photos APP. The pros can also handle. HD are video recording catching seven hundred million colors. Sixty Times, the number they could capture before. Apple, said they also sport the first smartphone camera that'll record in dolby vision hd are. And just like the apple pro raw functionality users will be able to edit the dobie vision HDR video in the photos APP. Finally the light are rumors were finely true the twelve pro and twelve pro Mac speech or a world facing light detection and ranging scanner. That let folks scan and modeled their surroundings. Apples Demos showed that put to use for placing objects in an augmented reality environment performing improved autofocus and low light and improving camera that perception in low light for night moat. Working our way out of these phones, Greg, Joswiak, apple's newly minted senior. VP Worldwide Marketing talked about a few of the pro lines features. It's got mad safe. It's got ceramic shield. It's got a Super Ratna FDR display. As for sizes iphone twelve pro gets bumped from five point eight inch display display size of six point one inches the pro Max meanwhile goes six point five inch display to a display size of six point seven. All of it is bound by the same squared off edges as iphone twelve, the with a couple of distinctions. I. The outer band is stainless steel on the pro line and second the colors are a bit more refined. Coming in silver graphite a gold that looks seriously golden. And the Pacific. Blue that doesn't do as much for me as the blue on the IPHONE twelve. Not that I'd turn it down. If cost is your primary concern. Here is what you're looking at across the whole line of iphones. iphone se. Start Three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars iphone ten are starts at four ninety, nine iphone eleven starts at five, ninety, nine iphone many starts at hundred ninety, nine dollars iphone twelve starts at seven ninety, nine, iphone twelve pro starts at nine, ninety nine. An iphone Pro Max starts at one, thousand, ninety, nine dollars. For the new phones though those prices are only Kinda SORTA true. Peace, from the Mac Observer says iphone twelve many an iphone twelve do start at six, ninety, nine and seven, ninety nine if you buy them as a t and T or verizon phones if you buy one is either a sprint or t mobile phone or as an unlocked phone. The starting prices are seven, twenty, nine, and eight, twenty nine. With no indication as to why. While it's great that ceramic shield means less of a chance of broken display. The chance is still there. If that bugs, you apple care pluses there for all of them. macrumors says, two years of coverage will run one, hundred, forty, nine dollars for iphone and twelve mini. Adding loss or theft protection will up that price to to nineteen buyers can get ongoing coverage for seven, ninety, nine per month or eleven dollars and forty nine cents with loss and theft added. As for the higher end phones, the pizzas, two years of Apple Care Plus will cost one, nine, thousand, nine or nine dollars ninety nine cents per month. Theft. And loss coverage bumps that price to two, hundred, sixty, nine dollars or thirteen dollars and forty nine cents per month. Ongoing. As for availability, apple is starting in the middle. And working out. Would owners can order iphone twelve and iphone twelve pro this Friday the sixteenth. October. They'll be delivered the following Friday the twenty third. If you're targeting either end of the range. iphone twelve, many an iphone twelve pro Max will go up for order on the sixth of November. Delivery should hit the following Friday the thirteenth of November. Barring incident which I have to say because. Friday

Chromecast with Google TV can finally take on Roku and Fire TV Stick 4k
"Veiled the guys last week and got a little lost in the shuffle with the nest audio and Pixel. Five debuts. So what's new what the chrome cast? So the big thing with the crown cast is that it now has a remote and an interface. Those are two long awaited features. You no longer have to rely solely on your phone or tablet or computer to take Netflix's Surg, Youtube and put it onto your TV and I mean, talk a little bit about some of the features on that remote, as well as the interface what what is new about it and is it was it like to us? So I guess we'll break this onto two things we'll start with what's new a google system is very present on the new chrome cast. There's a dedicated assistant button it actually is in a different hue on the remote stands out. It's Pretty active as far as being the interface as well, and you can actually control most of the chrome cats functions with Google system, which is great it really it does a nice job as far as what else is new beyond the interface remote that really covers the bulk of it. There's also Dobie vision and they'll be utmost if you have a compatible TV and sound system. What about that Google TV experience I know it's a revamped version of what they previously called Android TV what's different about it like how and how does it work? So it's kind of new for you page. So the big the big push with. Google TV is a new interface it a new layout that looks more like a Amazon's fire TV. than the old way, which had you basically scrolling through each apps now there's Content in the four as opposed to each APP having it's own separate. Column. Ero-. and. It makes it a lot easier to use it. It's designed to help you find things to watch. As. Opposed to mindlessly scrolling through. Netflix. And then scrolling through prime video or HBO or any of the other many streaming APPs that are available a lot. This seems like upgrade or anything you don't like about this thing. So I had a couple moments where it lacked it wasn't as fast as say Amazon's fire TV, stick four K., which is a similarly. Priced. Streaming dangle. That has Alexis Google Assistant. Random issues where assistant where if I asked to watch them a big marble and so I'd asked to watch avengers infinity war and it would start playing on. Youtube. TV through TBS which has the broadcast rights or the cable rights rather as opposed to recognizing that I subscribed to Disney plus and playing it in four K. on Disney plus subscription. So it just doesn't assistant doesn't always know right now what the best way to watch a particular show movies. It also had a weird issue where unofficial. Weird issue. But you can't actually power this or I wasn't able to power this off of the USB port on my television. I had to use the included seven and a half. Watt Power after which I don't know about you, I like plugging these things directly into the TV running off the USB power it's less cables to see it's easier to to install not having to find an empty outlet. And the fact that this at least with my lg Ola that I was testing into couple years old the old lead, but it's still a fairly recent TV. The fact that wouldn't power and function off of what was provided from the USB port was a bit surprising. Yes. Someone who has his roku plugged into the USB poor of his TV, I can definitely appreciate the need for something like that because it cuts down on the number wires behind your TV. And living in a household with multiple kids you WanNa have as few wires as possible. So that's kind of annoying. Setback. But you know that that that's not the biggest deal you talked about Google assistant and how it's front and center in this Did you find when you were using this? You're using Google system a lot more or were you reverting back this year? The traditional way you'd use remote control, right just the using the standard volume channel of Buns or like how how did having assistant on their control changed the way you interact with this change in the couple is so. Big in the ANDROID. Google TV. Sorry interfaces for you page which I guess it's a personalized page based off of shows and movies that you like and. Content that you traditionally watch and what is recommending was actually pretty good. That's the default homepage. Ties in necessarily to the assistant the ties to some that personalization aspects I find that to be pretty useful as far as what Google is doing there, and for the assistant director part the voice portion of it. I found myself constantly using assistant to open APPs or two. I was using TV and fan. So just to switch between football and the Yankee game saying. Okay Google the key game in having automatically switched to the right channel. Was Super Helpful and it was doing this regardless of whatever APP was in. So I was watching something on Netflix are on regular youtube and I wanted to see what was going on the Yankee game I'd say Okay Google hold the button down okay Google go to the Yankees game and it would do that. Sometimes it took a few seconds to do that at one point I timed. It knows over ten, which for live TV is pretty bad. Ten second wait between when you want to go somewhere say you WanNa go somewhere and when it actually appears. that needs to improve tremendously, and it wasn't that I had a bad internet connection I have couple hundred megabits per second more on testing. So that needs to improve at otherwise the assistant has been great to use an pretty surprised to say that because voice assistance on these streaming devices. Has Been At least in my experience a bit more hit or miss. So taken together with all these new features, their control and just to clarify. Cost, fifty dollars and that's that's more than the previous rate it is. Go to models previously, there was a chrome cast macroom castle tre. So this does pretty much everything. The chrome cats ultra does the higher end I believe it was seventy dollars model that now's only available in a stadium bundle for now studios actually coming to. Chrome cast with Google TV, this new device, but it's not coming until sometime officially in the believe first half of twenty twenty one. So sometime, next year. So this is actually cheaper. The matter is more expensive than the HD, only chrome cast but that for I believe it was thirty dollars, lacks the interface lacks a remote lacks four case for twenty dollars more you get all that plus the ability to run all these APPs without having to rely on your phone computer tablet. Got It. So taking all together, the price, the new features, the remote control, how does this stack up against similar option from Roku, Amazon through its fire TV line so that's a great question. It really depends on what world you live in. That's how look at this. If you are somebody who has a lot of Amazon devices, I'm not gonNA say the word because I don't want to trigger things. If you have a lot of those devices and you're very much in the Amazon World The fire TV stick four K. is excellent. It's faster than this. The election degration sorry said that word is not as strong as Google, assistant. But it is a very capable, very impressive device. If you have a lot of apple devices roku streaming stick plus which is forty dollars is an equally compelling option especially when it has play which roku announce, the other week is coming at some point soon. So it really depends on where you you find yourself if you just want all the APPs and this has hbo Mac, which is something that Amazon, Roku currently lack. This is not a bad option. Yeah. That was the fault question there because there's been a lot fusion about which streaming services are available on in which dreamers. The generally, the chrome cast is pretty much covered for all your services, the croome cast with Google TV, because they're still regular chrome cast being sold. This one has I would say out of the major ones ninety, nine percents of is missing. Apple. TV plus. Is available on Roku Amazon, and of course, the Apple TV if you want something that currently has everything you have to get an apple TV. Apple TV. For K., but those I think the Apple TV fourcade currently hundred eighty dollars or so. So you have to pay a sizable upgrade plus some pretty old hardware at this point has been rumored to be prepping new boxes of some kind. Were to do that for a while maybe comes out your maybe it doesn't through kind of all over the map there. But that's the only one that has every major streaming service Google has everyone but apple TV plus roku Amazon have everyone bought Hbo Max so it really depends. You S reviewer I'm just curious how you put these things which pesos what is the review process look like especially when you're doing this at home It's a lot of watching. TV. And a of watching movies and seeing how it performs. In a variety of different settings. So different TV's different picture options with different content sources so Disney plot for example, on the Google TV doesn't stream currently until be vision but Netflix does have some content available in dolby vision and will be. Available on the chrome cast with Google TV. So it's it's comparing different things. It's comparing the performance of those content sources to how a roku streaming stick plosser Amazon Fire TV stick for K.. Would handle playing back that particular movie or TV show or piece of live. Content TV's sports. And just comparing and contrasting to watching that sounds like a really tough job. Ultimately is worth. Fifty dollars I think. So if you again keeping in mind that. The exact situation will vary if you like Apple TV, this is not the option for you. If you have a very big Amazon household you wanted to tie in. Really. Well to your rings. And to some of your other Amazon devices. This isn't the option for you. if you want to do airplay, this isn't the option trio. But if you want something that's simple that has a solid interface that has really good remote and isn't that expensive at fifty dollars is a pretty good choice.
A Look At The new Samsung Tablet
"Well, let's keep. Let's keep the Samsung train rolling and If there's one device form factor that we're not skeptical about that, we actually wish we saw more of the got to play with more often that would be tablets. And the Galaxy Tab get. Samsung. Galaxy Tab seven plus came out and had you had some time with it and you wrote a pretty good review for over android central. Tell me tell me all about the galaxy. Tab. Seven pluses. Is it a good tablet? IS WORTH PEOPLE'S MONEY? Is that the future of tablets? So the this one, I'm a bit less bullish on that I, am with the with the full to. It is a fantastic tablet. So I guess we'll quickly run through some of the some of the features with it. I'M GONNA try not to hit my microphone Basically, you've got most of the same specs as some of Samsung's recent phones you've got like a snapdragon eight, sixty, five plus. Sixty eight gigs of Ram twenty gigs of storage, etc.. The point is basically it's just this very, very powerful tablet. You've got a twelve and a half inch one twenty hertz screen? and. The screen just looks gorgeous. It's it's one of the best screens of a any device of used in recent memory the the trouble of course, because it's an android tablet it, it starts to come when you need apps. So If you're just using tablet for media streaming, maybe you know Netflix Youtube, etc. It's it's totally fine. It's got each Dr Support. It's it's quite hd display. It's GonNa Look Gorgeous for everything you watch on it but I do a lot of creative from a video editing to photo editing and audio production and none of that with the exception of photo editing is really great on an android tablet. There's no full version of photoshop like get on an IPAD. At even Dobie Premier Rush, which is available on Android, and it's sort of the answer to android users saying I wish I had luma fusion like the IPAD premiere Russia's a great option but I wasn't able to download that on the tablet seven plus it's just it doesn't show up on the play store so. There's there's a lot of frustration in in terms of I guess sort of pro grade media creation APPs and that that's sort of the thing that I would want this four when you've got this amazing screen and of the tools like the SPN and the really nice keyboard accessory But on the bright side, what I, what I talked a lot about my review is that it has this decks interface where you enable it and it basically turns the tablet into a laptop style interface. You get you get flu windows that you can pin to each side of the screen You get a task for all the stuff that makes it feel like a chromebook or any laptop and the main advantage there is that it lets you sort of run because you can run window to APPS. You can run the phone versions of certain APPs that aren't optimized for giant screen and so things like instagram work a lot better index than they do on a regular tablet view where base fills the entire screen with one giant instagram APP decks really really helps sort of fixed at least the casual the casual ended up issue there so that that's been a big help I think. As. Far as whether or not it's worth I. mean this is this is an eight, hundred, fifty dollars tablet that if you want the keyboard I think you really need the keyboard. It's GONNA cost another two thirty plus you know if you want to get more storage or get five G. support, that's all gonNa cost even more of course. So it becomes this thousand plus dollar tablet that it's it's. Difficult to recommend, I would say for most people. I mean, those numbers are close to laptop numbers right for like I mean I mean for powerful laptop numbers I mean you can get a much. You can get an affordable laptop and you can even get affordable convertible laptop that also functions as a tablet for under a thousand dollars. So yeah, I could see where it gets price prohibitive. Absolutely. I mean I think if you had more of those apps like Photoshop and premier premiere rush it would be a lot easier to recommend just because then if you if you just prefer a tablet over a laptop this is a great option but Without, those apps I mean really what this is to me is a great media streaming device and it's a great gaming device, but you don't have to spend eleven hundred plus dollars to get those sorts of things in in other veterans. So it's just a hard sell for for I think most types of users. At the same time, it's nice that there are options in that range were for the few people who are willing to spend like I think that that kind of that reminds me of the conversation around like the Pixel Book and the Higher End Chrome Os laptops slot like the Pixel book you know where there are thousand dollars plus and the majority of people are GonNa look at that and be like why I spend a thousand dollars on a web browser or whatever everybody says about Chrome Os. But then there there is always that particular few that they're like, no, you know what my work like. Operate. In Chrome Os and I want the best damn device to run CHROMA less and so I'm willing to drop a thousand dollars on it and I. I could see someone out there appreciating that there's a thousand dollars tablet that you know that is like the best thousand dollar android tablet. But yeah by a large, that's probably not most people and especially considering the fact that tablets and android have really not been a very magical ca category combination. You know not in the same way that IPAD and I o S. And iphone have been you know apple has made a very successful business out of its tablet side of things and debris you'll. I have to wonder how much of that and I'm speaking completely from a position of ignorance here. But how much of that is a is a difference in position between apple and Google in terms of a development developers resource or incentive. You know you've got imagine apple went to adobe and made incentivize them to create a full version of punishment. That works may IPAD is Google. Just not doing that t to adobe right they are. Are they being the typical kind of Google unapproachable and not re proactively reaching out to the companies of the APPS that they need in order to make these things make these things become a viable product line they just saying we'll put you know we'll support the operating system. We'll let the OEM's make make the devices and hope that people put good apps on it but could google, get more proactive in terms of soliciting those kind of APPs I think they could. Yeah I mean it's it's this sort of endless circle right because right now Basically you know it's it's not worth it from Google's perspective to to you know sort of incentivize companies to make apps because people don't buy android tablets but people don't buy android tablets because Google doesn't make anybody make good injury jobs. So I really you know. You solve that but. I do think if if you're married to the idea of an android tablet, if you just I mean I love android. On, a phone at least if you really just want android on a tablet, this is easily the best tablet. There is I think from a hardware perspective. This is as Nice if not nicer to me at least than any I have ever used. So there's definitely a lot compelling. Plus the fact that it even though it's expensive, it is a little bit cheaper than an ipad Pro twelve point nine and it comes with the SPN in the box. So you get a bit of a Freebie there So I mean if I guess if your needs don't go beyond what android tablet APP ecosystem can offer your this is this is a great pickup I just such. Eleven hundred bucks is a lot to ask for. So you. So you just touched a question from the chat room. So the pen comes with it right? The pen, but the keyboard is an add on for a couple couple. Hundred Bucks, right Yeah, that'll be two thirty with the keyboard you get obviously the keyboard itself which comes with a track that and then also comes with a back cover that I think is really really handy even if you even if you don't need the keyboard you just WanNa use this as a media device. The back cover is magnetized and it it gives you this almost three sixty hinge. So you can. You can prop up the tablet at basically any angle it's very rigid. I really liked the hinge a lot I don't know if they actually sell that separately without the keyboards for people that don't plan on typing, but it's it's like I said, I think the keyboard and the back cover sort of bundle is is really a must have for for the tablet if you really want to get the most out of it and not just I guess without it, you're basically just using it as a note taking device, which is great. But for eight hundred, Fifty Bucks, you might as well go the extra mile and and get the the other accessories that make it more usable. Even more money. Talks luck. Yeah. That's right there if if Samsung's doing its job, right, then that would be the no brainer decision of anyone thinking about buying one of these. But I guess the question is, do they sell enough of them for be worth it and? Simply always surprises me as far as that's concerned but they might not sell enough from the outside looking in, but they obviously selling up because it keeps making them

Proclaiming Salvation to Those far from God - Luke 5:29-32
"Luke Chapter Five versus twenty, nine, thirty two. And leave. I made him a great feast in his house. There was a large company of tax collectors and others reclining at table with them. In the Pharisees and their scribes grumbled at his disciples. Saying, why do you eat and drink with tax, collectors and sinners? and Jesus answered them. Those who are well have no need if a physician. But, those who are sick? I've not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance. What a story so Levi the tax collector has followed Jesus, and then brought all whole host of other tax collectors to a feast in his house and centers is what the Pharisees and Scribes Describe Miss Group tax collectors and sinners. So you have this group of religious leaders who are complaining. That Jesus is spending time with tax, collectors and sinners. and Jesus says. This is why I came. I came to call sinners to repentance to give them life, he says those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick and the irony is these religious leaders are far sicker than they realize, but they think they're righteous. They think they've done it all right. Jesus says I came for people who realize they haven't done it all right. And so I just want to encourage us, particularly as we gather together in churches for worship. To realize first and foremost, what brings us together is not our righteousness. But our unrighteousness. Not Our health, but our sickness we need a savior and by God's grace. Jesus has come, and he has made salvation possible for us, and we must never forget that, and we must never lose this emphasis in our lives. We are here on this earth, still to lead people who are far from God to God people who are far from Jesus to Jesus, so throw feasts do whatever God may lead us to do. According to his word to introduce people who are far from Jesus to Jesus, made this Oh, God be the focus in our lives. May this be the focus and our churches? Please God please keep us from creating like A. Christian bubble in our lives and our churches were only spending time with people who were trying to do all these things right got re confess. We can s our need for you who we confess our sickness without you are sinfulness without you. We raise you for your salvation in our lives. We praise you for how you came to save us Oh. God and we pray that you would help to live so that others might experience this salvation so that people who? Even religious leaders might label his too far out there God that they would be drawn to you. Please Oh, God. Give us this kind of focus in our lives and our families, and in our churches, people who are far from you. People were far from Jesus people who even outcast and our Culture God. Please Oh God, please use us to lead them to you. Please make our churches places where centers. Tax Collectors to use the language here from Luke Chapter Five people far from you feel like they have a home because they're hearing about your love their hearing about your grace. They're hearing about your salvation, which we all need God we pray for this for people right around as far from us, we pray for the Dobie people in bogus down over a million of them Muslims in Pakistan Monday. Dobie people group, no followers of Jesus God. God! Please, please. You came for the sick. You came for those who are far from you. Please draw the Dobie to Houston labourers that the Gospel might go to the Dobie in pockets on May. The story of our lives, our families and our churches be reaching people who are far from you ride around us, and far from us for your glory that they might know your love and feast at your table in Jesus name, we pray.
Interview with Oki Mek, Special Advisor, HHS
"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Walsh and I'm your host Schmeltzer. Our guest today is okay. Mack who is the senior advisor to the chief information officer at the US Department of Health and Human Services? Hhs So okay thank you so much for joining us on Ai Today. Thank you for having caffeine wrong. Yeah thank you so much for joining us. You'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. And tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at HHS. I am a. I am the senior adviser to Sasebo. And I'm also the technical integration. Lead but edgy reimagined but my background is really cybersecurity but my principal around cybersecurity. That just knowing cyber alone is not enough. You really need to know and understand the business I've been with. Hr FINANCE BUDGET GRANTS ACQUISITIONS. I was leaving sponsored to help onboard new employees for personnel security and badges and laptops. So I find that to be very critical and crucial in terms of modern nine station in the government just knowing to three sixty just understanding what you know what budget stream is coming through. What is the budget calendar Audi acquisition services and products and even just getting people on board with badges an laptop? Just getting that three sixty view and been very critical in terms of you know modernizing trying to innovate in trying to change the landscape Embracing Emerging Tech and dealing with big data paradigm shifts excellent. Yeah it's definitely the government's been very interesting. Adopter not just technology in general but especially with artificial intelligence. Because you know is is a transformative technology. Just like You know many of the other big transformative waves in the Internet and mobile and big data and the cloud and now five G. and then blockchain so all of these technology transformative right. They had changed a whole lot of things or multi. System the multidisciplinary and so obviously there are many ways that we see being applied to government agencies organizations. And we've been very impressed. One of the things that been talking about here a lot today is sort of the many ways in which is being adopted. Not only an industry as a whole but especially in government very impressive actually some of these ways that hopefully it's making the government more responsive more efficient more effective more. Give it more visibility into things. So can you tell us some of the ways that? Hhs is currently adopting AI and various solutions. And maybe how those ways are unique to. Hhs or perhaps similar to what other of different governmental agencies are doing in this space so we start of area to the CIO. And I started a program like celery leveraging ai machine learning and blockchain. It was the first watching network that had been authorized to operate in the federal government but in terms of a I think we are using similar to agency mainly we use it to clean and format the data and as you know you deal with a lot of data set the day. I need data. The biggest thing is cleaning the data. Ninety five I believe ninety percent of it is cleaning the data. People WanNa do they WANNA do machine learning they WANNA do. But they don't focus on they're gonna up a root of baking because Clinton. The data is the biggest component of that process. So we use a machine learning to basically normalize the data from different data sets using supervised and unsupervised learning to normalize the data. And then we also get into linear regression as well in terms of predictive analysis. One of the main thing that we'd do accelerate is looking at prices paid and just as so large we do about twenty five billion in spending on products and services just minding data and cleaning the data at it was a big call just to look at. Why are we buying things that different prices and a good example is? I'm just throwing the example while we buy that. Dobie pro at cms for aided aqua- eighty dollars per license and buying that CDC thirty dapper night or licensed an opportunity to mind data to come to the table to be able to negotiate a different price. You can't come to table to negotiate without having that insight so data claiming and looking at data mining and looking at predictive analysis the three main usage for a for us. That's great you know Melinda. We produced a report last year. And then we did a follow up report this year Dataprep prep and data labeling and I think that a lot of people underestimate how long it's going to take to actually get their data into a usable state so it's great that you pointed that out because I think that people underestimate the time and the difficulty that sometimes it can be actually get data in a usable state. Data's the heart of AI. So you need that. For these systems to learn as a government agency adoption of new technologies such as artificial intelligence can bring its own unique set of challenges that sometimes the private sector doesn't always run into. These can be issues around privacy data usage. What can and can't be used where it can be stored so can you tell us some of the challenges you've seen with Ai. Adoption in your agency and how you're overcoming them by the biggest mistake that people do is looking at the technology before they look at the business and the mission of agency. I always say that does no such thing at it. Project and the business project with it components. You have to start with the business. And what are you trying to saw? Most of these challenges that the EPA my experience I've been in a government close to twenty years half awaiting contractor in private industry and also have in federal government. The challenge is not the technology challenges to culture is leaning chain change management and. I don't think we do not a strategic planning. Just because we have one hundred idea doesn't mean we pursued ideas. We need to look at you know strategic planning comes into play. You may have one hundred ideas but you should only pursue one idea through strategic. Planning you know. The first thing is really feasibility studies. I didn't even feasible to at any regression issue. Anani downstream impact. Accountability is big. I think in terms of trying to modernize. Can you prove a concept just because you have this idea? People might think is a crazy idea but if you do it at a tangible way that you could prove that idea is feasible and it's scalable because you wanNA start small and scale that big as well. Sustainability is huge as well just because the project is a success. Doesn't mean that sustainable as your culture your agency your privacy mature enough to take on this new shining toy you know this new technology but the important part is marketability I we. I can't overemphasize that did not marketability is people. Don't think that the government market but you have to market you ideas. You have to win. The hearts and minds of the workforce the people that They coders you have to be able to market in different ways to senior leadership to middle managers workforce. I think culture is the biggest obstacle. But I think doing a thorough strategic planning analysis and putting emphasis on marketability analysis is key and the biggest part of marketability is human design is really engaging the workforce I'll model in terms of accelerated that. We're not building the solution. We are allowing the workforce to go to solution getting them engaged yet here at thoughts and pain point incorporating agile depth. Bob You know building something. Every two weeks and bring him back to them is a Saab issue and we cycled out every two or three weeks and that really is the key of getting people to lean in and to win the heart and mind of people.
Jason Lemkin Clip: Why now is the best time to start a SaaS company
"A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to chat with former founder. Active venture capitalists and driving force behind. Sastre Jason Lincoln. Jason Zoster a community for Sassan cloud founders also organized the annual Sastre Conference in San Jose. That now attracts five figures. Were the folks each year. We spoke with Jason before the novel. Corona virus had evaded containment efforts affecting domestic markets after upending their counterparts abroad the current community since dacians forced Jason Deport. Sastre back a bit. But that doesn't mean that our chat with him any less timely in our forty five minute conversation we covered a ton of stuff from the potential for cloud slow down to how founders should use or not use venture debt to Jason's outlook on SAS consolidation. And even half asked. He's writing checks today. We're sharing one of our favorite clips here. The rest is over on techcrunch for excellence subscribers we're GONNA get into VC's lately that have been talking about the beginning of cloud. Slow down and I I. This is a very specific thing. What they mean is cloud is no longer an upstart phenomenon. Saas LONGER NASCENT. We've now seen a large percentage of the inner voice software world move over to SAS and nine means that the growth rate will descend as the actual aggregate basis larger and critically. They think that this might lead to income and squeezing out startups from certain spaces in the Saas market. That might have been attractive before. And this is from Alex over at scale venture partners recently and I thought it was interesting hypothesis. I don't see why wouldn't be correct. But I want to get your take on. I know your cloud optimist. You've always been a believer in my experience. So when you think about the maturing of this ass market does that leave less space for starts in as you look at the the overall landscape. Well let's see. I think there are two different points. I have two different perspectives. If you look at data from Gartner which is imperfect. But at least we haven't you. Can you can say that. Maybe thirty percent of old school on Prem type software has gone to SAS thirty percent so the pollen of user seventy percent left but the flipside is. That's a lot of market penetration right. It actually starts approach forty fifty percent. You should see a slowdown this secular trend into SAS. When when even when you started doing sas certainly when I started doing it was risky. It was quirky. It was weird. It was it disliked. It was it was not trust about two thousand sixteen through about Twenty Sixteen. Maybe even a little later at the first astronaut. Aaron Levy came one week after the box roadshow and asked him what the public markets. He said they're starting to learn about it. They're starting to get comfortable in two thousand fifteen. That's that's only twenty five years ago so we are so that thirty percent was probably eight percent right and so there is so there's so so there's a the good news is seventy percent left. The the risk is like you know there's only so much of this crazy growth and another thing happened. Which if you look at any Gartner or whatever this and this no one anticipated more of. It went we all knew there would be a substitution that of however you define it a trillion three and there's different metrics how much infrastructure include. We all knew that like the old the old on Prem Safra would go to sas we didn't realize that it would. It would take up thirty to forty percent more of those. It budget so they used to so we got an extra boost. People are spending more on software. No no one from scale no one from anybody realized we would spend more on business software because of SAS but has physical limits. It budgets are only be so much of global two thousand budget so these Amazing Trans created many many Saas companies. Doing a billionaire are billionaire are but but they're gonNA hit headwinds there. There's no question those headwinds that's different from whether that's going to box out startups. By the first half of the apotheosis there is going to be a slow down as we just forty fifty percents over the next five years. Yes there has to be and as we stop putting more and more of our fixed. It budget into SAS. These are two great trends and they will reach saturation. Got It okay. Now on certain point and and being boxed out using more skeptic I think this is the best time to start a startup time. Tell me why because all the SAS leaders are billion. Two BILLION COMING UP ON A billionaire. Zenda shop is the hub spots. They don't have taught they don't have time so if you're a billionaire and they're all growing like a weed growing thirty forty percents shop advice. Going fifty percents off. But they're all growing. They're all growing with a few exceptions. They're all growing north of twenty percent. All the leaders true. So let's imagine you're in a building air which now they're like twenty of these companies. How much do you have to add this year? Two hundred even three hundred. Maybe a lot you're thinking about non-organic time to compete with your little startup. That was just on tech crunch. You know ten years ago. Five Years Twenty fifteen. When when Aaron came from box Aaron would see a startup. Doing five millionaire. Get a little worried. I mean not literally worried but they. Hey this may disrupt me. Is that right Stewart. Butterfield doesn't have time he's GonNa read it. He's all over social media. He's an incredible founder but slack doesn't have time going to a billionaire to worry about someone that did five million has got to worry about. Microsoft has gotta worry big guy so that means you have a lot of air cover to get not just to a million before your competed with by maybe one hundred million owes underneath the. We'll just ignore you because they have to focus they have to hold it and adobe turning around now and everyone from fig on down is competing aggressively with them. But why because they're stupid of course not? They're very smart. Sap there they were busy. It's too small. It was too small right and there's too much growth in creative cloud creative cloud fuel the dobies text market cap growth. So they just. It's not that they don't watch what's happening with web flow and figment everyone. It's just too small until it's nine figures in revenue because figure has become materialists. I don't know how they're all super successful and it's not because anyone was dumb. It's just because you can't compete when they were small you just can't. You're too big. You're they've grown too quickly so it sounds like instead of this problem. It's actually there's there's more freedom because become now too busy to kind of mess with you get up to ten fifteen twenty million a are before they even begin the guns on your ship and because cloud got so big. These niches got big. Every niche. That used to be a millionaire NECC- now can be one hundred million Monday dot Com. Where you're talking about who we needed another project. Management for Non Tech folks that went from one hundred twenty million in four years. But that's a that's a piece like ten years ago. That would be a two million dollar business going to two hundred million so let's whole years one hundred times bigger. This little niche that Monday found and they're going to do a billionaire art. So let's talk about Vertical Saas. Jump ahead my question because this is what I wanted to get. Borough Ready It seems like you're thinking about Vertical Saas than isn't that this is GonNa be constricting idea but inside these these these takes on like the dentist industry or whatever and building software for those could be enormous because the niches have gotten larger to your points. I presume your a bowl on vertical sats. I've always been a ball. I would say even more simply. Look at any company to billionaire. Look at his desk job. Okay which is already two billion. That means they're gonNA keep growing. That means they're going to get to five or ten billion. My rough math is there's another billion vertical version of that so there's another billionaire could be more and that means there could be ten UNICORNS. One hundred million ten verticalised desks right And doesn't even have time to meet with them right. I Investment Company gorgeous which is like a vendetta ECOMMERCE. They're almost all on shop. Affi- it's very niche right. They're gonNA be growing three. X Ten million error. Is that tune it? People thought this company was to NICCI twelve. Apparently it's not nine. Three hundred percent honest has an offering it as a great product but all they do is make sure your fulfillment from instagram to shipping. That your contact center works magically. Which is good enough. Note is enough. It is enough to build a three hundred million Arab business. But it's just a niche today. That's so big because cloud is look how shoplifting. Today seventy million dollars in two thousand fifteen it was worth eight hundred million so these niches have grown astronomically and that means these vertical SAS things. We've like gorgeous and others. You turn around. And how could we do be a unicorn? Well it wasn't four or five years ago right when I met I met the founders only twice twenty fifteen. They were great but it wasn't clear it could be as big today but cloud. Gubbay point about Zen desk in there being room for ten unicorns underneath the desk at one hundred air. The implications vertical sights will still generally smaller companies than the original broader. Sass play so to me even smaller than salesforce. That's an example I don't Viva is a Pharma. Sierra Viva is the most successful verticals ass company so the CTO salesforce left salesforce a decade ago founded VIVA. It only raised three million dollars from emergence plus. It's now worth twenty billion dollars. Today he was also in my class. Like everyone did better than me in my bye-bye on the show but you should just get out. We should bring Peter Gassner. He's like a hundred times would have been me and vivas was twenty something billion and then how to products and he. He said look sales versus a great horizontal play I WanNa do Pharma and there. There is a legacy vendor in the space and it's big. It's a big space and all their deals are seven figure eight figure deals. But it's still. It's still a thirty billion dollar company and salesforce is one hundred fifty billion so I can't think of a vertical SAS that is bigger than its horizontal play but it may well it may well exist but thirty billion still outcomes. You're at three million dollar investment. Even if they are smaller by definition you know there's going to be enormous your general point about the client it's up it's becoming growing the high antigone larger piece of the overall. Everyone seems to be very hot. Verticals ask these days. So that's why I wanted to ask because they like it because the cloud got bigger and because competition is simpler the amount of domain expertise you have to do to build a viva is. It's rich compounds on itself and there aren't going to be twenty startups out of y Si. They're going to build that. But but and so there are these verticals because finally they realized they can be three hundred air business and then they can actually millionaire and they realized look it actually works. I can like I. Invested in in a SAS company just for environmental compliance called map history right. They disclosed their first. One million dollar deal okay. They have like no competition not in the whole space but in what they do they can have a few bumps and they can get through it. They have time they have times. There's not ten other players in the exact same thing. We've guys may disagree. But they had like one or two competitors and their original competitor was I think. Ms Dos based in offices. So you have time and so like this because you just. You're you're overwhelmed with the competition. You're overwhelmed with everyone. Wanted to take on snowflake and data dog and and there are many great apm companies. But it's exhausting. How do you know what's the next day doc?
Sony 360 Reality Audio: This headphone-virtualization system expands music beyond your head
"We'll or home theater key kello scotto take leo how're you doing we should mention that these sony surround sound headphones you're talking about a couple of weeks ago that review is now up on tech high dot com correct and i really love it they aren't they aren't the headphones per se you can use the system with any headphones you want oh so there's just a just a headphone hamper hamper headphone no it's a headphone it's not even a box it's an app you put on your phone what yeah it's noth- nothing it's the cost nothing and there you go but you have to listen to the phone you have to have a headphone you have to have a pair head and also as smartphone right because he has a smartphone yeah yeah you gotta have a source for the the music will be your smartphone well it'll be there are actually three sources so yes you have to pay for the for the swords i have to pay for for title title or cobras q. oh b. u. s. b. jozy as ah cobras or nuggets dot net and you GS and nuggets is specializes in recordings of live concert ooh i i like that which is really cool very because the music itself has to also be encoded in this war has to be encoded in this format called three sixty reality polity audio from sony and what they do is they have to remix it basically they have to mix it in this format and it's a the format is very much like dobie atmos- that that is object oriented so each instrument or sound emitting element in the mix is an object and you can place it anywhere in three d. space so that is one thing to point out is at least unhugged dot net they're taking concert recordings and remixing them they're not getting spatial audio from some sort of interesting recording setup there they might be it's possible i'm looking at like i mean i doubt in two thousand nine bruce springsteen recorded his show correct correct that way but maybe the newer stuff they might be correct yeah i mean new new artists are mixing in this format to begin with wow this is tempting i might i might have to try nuggets dot net because i would love to you know two thousand nine springsteen concert and surround sound like you're standing in the audience that'd be leading more than surround sound how can it be more than surround well because they can place objects over your head up down left right all round yeah exactly and on a live concert they wouldn't typically put the guitar you know above you you know or the drums but they they would put audience ambient sound above you nice and of course if you're in a if you're in a hall with a roof there's your reflections from overhead all right you have to make the the the music the file has to be mixed in this format right and and then you then it's streamed from tidal or cobos or nogues and any headphone that you happen to wear while you're streaming it will will render the file so that it sounds so full and i mean is it really going to have to try it there's a thirty day trial in eggs on any of them all okay idle and cobras also have thirty day probably worth doing because you don't know what is at least you don't i'll have to buy new headphones or buy new hardware now if you if you do buy or have a certain select sony headphones you can go one step farther farther ooh which to tell you the truth i didn't find to be all that advantageous that's the one thing about it that that i wrote about in the in the review but if you have sony headphones and i had the w. h. one thousand x noise canceling wireless headphones sony sent him to me you can use used the sony headphones app which is also free to take pictures of your ears and what it supposedly does is creates a custom profile for your ears because everybody's ears are uniquely shaped it's almost like fingerprints you everybody's ears are different and the way that sound in the in the environment around you diffraction around them is unique based upon the shape of your ears so if you take a picture of your ears it with the sony app and then apply that the algorithm that generates as a result to the incoming incoming stream from title or co buzzer hugs then supposedly you get an even more personalized more realistic
What it Means to Be Creative with Vanessa Dewey
"Vanessa is as a community builder marketing professional and currently works at Adobe as the senior project marketing manager. That's a mouthful yes it is. Hopefully this is not actually. I just left on Friday. So it's all new. Okay so my guess my first question it was gonNA be anyways sort of if you WANNA talk to us a little bit about what you're doing. Now what your journey has been up to this point and what you're going to be doing. I guess now in the future shirt. We'll definitely I apologize about that brand new. Everything's happened so quick. No not necessarily I looked at today just to make sure everything was updated. But we don't don't always update linked in with our life right. Yeah especially when things just happened. I'm a little slow to that right now. Yeah no worries I guest. I'll just say overall my career path is definitely not linear. I'm definitely not tick the box type of creative My background is in graphic design for about eight years years. I was in house designed for Mattel branding and packaging orca across multiple verticals of the play patterns of toys And then I serve at a certain time of my career halfway through at during that venture at Mattel I decided to served take something else because I realized there is no outside. Craig is coming inspire a creative community of four hundred to six hundred plus creatives in Los is Angeles so I took on while having a full production schedule realize I need to take on and create the speaker series grassroots and over the course of five years built up from from quarterly to buy weekly bringing design. Thought leaders like Brian Collins. To wwl moment I Leela Nash. Meyer wow what a great idea it was it. It was in theory but that's was in essence in two thousand thirteen. When I started doing that it start planted the seeds because at the same time to I had a thought? What would you next my career so for me? I want is see and found other opportunities to infuse leadership and other types types of opportunities to help elevate and evolve myself as a creative and as a leader so the speaker series is also you know as you mentioned. Aig I got involved. volved in the Los Angeles chapter quite a bit and over the years that served helped me in an in a way to supplement where I was looking for that I was in say per se getting as IC Mattel not to say that. The community wasn't amazing but still like that extra in two thousand sixteen. I think this is just a year or so before I bet you my life I hit my. What's next month in my career? I was no longer inspired and just I could do packing branding. But it just wasn't singing to me in my God and then at the same time I decided to leave. My husband divorced him so so there's so much and what I ended up doing was professionally. I was able to take a role and evolve it and creates a so. I guess that's experiential educational and inspirational called the hub ultimately that's supported by four hundred six hundred plus Craybas at the headquarters of Matale. So I continue my speaker series and added onto that by Craig. An Internal Speaker series support at highlight creatives leaders in our community. At mattel a podcasts. Help my L. A. D. My led with crave career path and as a side note this role actually dead. The COO transitioned into H.. Ourselves and learning development so I go home ready packaging to hr so that lasted for almost two years. And I quit when I went into that role I went to a w maximum San Diego and one of my friends is one of the community managers for the creative jams community on team and I went up to see if there was any inside of eighteen was coming enterprise side so as it as it turned out they were working towards that end in summer of two thousand seventeen. I was part of the pilot for Adobe Craig Gems Enterprise Foul. KABC's what okay. So crazy is who don't know okay crave GM's as core. It's part is a to park. They have experienced part inspiration apart hands on Their community and there's also enterprise now but basically basically the format is you have teams of craters two to four depending varies but having teams creatives have asserted brief learn a certain tool from adobe. CBS Adobe Dobie Stockton W rush and then have an our tasks over three hours to address the brief while leverage these these tools rules you then also bring in thought leaders such as local design leaders or even just creative leaders anybody to EXPARC inspiration depending on what you want the talk about and the theme and also the end you bring in all craters and having do presentations of their final deliverables also Two percent of the teams and there's usually prizes and also it's A. It's a nice experience. Yeah it's a hack actually creates a little more elmo fun and not just a hack no. It's just a lot of fun. I actually participated in a creative jam here in Albuquerque. Oh Yeah my team member and I actually won the the choice choice award or whatever the thing is but yeah. I just wanted to kind of explain what that is for the people that don't understand we haven't had one around here in a while so just options is to explain a little bit but so when it happened was coming into twenty twenty eighteen. This program was then adopted onto the Create a quote enterprise side the marketing so I was brought over to join the team. And that's where I ended up so what from branding. Packaging Design Zayn into more of a creative HR learning development role and then that translates very well into this Role within the enterprise side and had it was a great opportunity. What I did was each of basically what I was doing it Mattel's then able to translate across in essence to different customers? Key customer customer so over the course of the first year has A. I was lucky enough to be able to help. Establish that in Europe so I was working with customers curate atheist. BESPOKE EVENTS FOR BBC Vice Media Sky TV to to pet lebrons. I did some in North America to and then I came back to North America Because to focus more on this last year in particular last feels those focusing on North America helping out the team here see. We're kind of split living indeed. Yes correct for the first. While months to fourteen months I was splitting time. Actually between Los Angeles and London which was mental? And then and then then I started phased out of the Arab side but then I still at once. I moved to New York I was for workwise those in New York but still continued when I could because I could work remotely at times. I was in London when I over the course of over the course they are right built a really lovely and inspiring design network and tried of add. Some really dear friends over there so I just could've. That's where everything's to me so I would always go back there when I can. So that's amazing. So are you at liberty to kind of speak to. Oh what your next step is what you're up to right now before we go onto our topic for today sure. No I definitely can't so basically I had a moment of clarity clarity literally Thanksgiving Week. I was elected and I had all these different mope conversations with people and just something clicked and I'm just actually. She probably take a pause to the last three years. I've taken a pause between METALLICA Dobie. I took two days off a Saturday Sunday. which is not a weekend? So I'm just figuring house and delving into what I really WANNA do some side projects and then having conversations I haven't been able to have And a few other things too okay. So what sort of side projects if I can pry. I love people side project so for several years. People keep saying you need to write. You need a ride. So I'M GONNA be pitching some articles goals designed based on creative base but also to one of my passions besides building communities connecting people and is coffee as you probably And you post lovely lovely pictures of coffee a thank you so basically what I'm GonNa try to do is also create a dialogue Building community meaning but more or less talking about coffee also brought it broader crates. So I'm trying to figure out a way to pitch a formatted adage series. So if I'm in London I'll pick three craters or three people within even the food industry and go to their three favorite coffee or wine wine shops and talk about it and go from there some. I'm playing around with different types of not just doing creative or design industry focus writings but other also infusing so my other passions. Yeah that is really exciting. Thank you and then all of this. I'll be taking my pause in in London so I bought a one way so London and the man so We had a long layover. I I was in Europe In at the beginning of October and we had a really long layover in London So so we we had like a four hour chance to just kind of explore as quick as we could. It was the day of that crazy brexit thing on a Saturday. So loggers augurs and like subway places. Where like blocked off and stuff but I definitely want to visit again when it's probably less chaotic and when we have more time to the hang out there but it was it was really beautiful? It is there something unique about the design community and just the creative community as a whole and then also so to a city. It's Io's feels like little hamlets piece together so you have a high straight with just bustling but then you can go off a couple of blocks and you're quite canals and so it's a nice. It's a nice

That's W I X DOT COM in. Stay tuned after the show to hear you can take advantage of Wick special offer for talking Tech Listeners Amazon just introduced eighty new products for the fall. I'm Jefferson Graham. This is talking tech. I'm at Amazon's headquarters right now. Covering the event after the event I actually cornered some Amazon executives and ask them to identify the one product. They're most excited about. We started with David Lynch. Who is the senior. Vp who runs the devices division vision and then we spoke to Jamie Salmond aquamarine connected doorbell and Nick Weaver from Euro. which is the WIFI helper in the home have a listen for me? I I echo buds or echo studio. I'm picking too. I know that's not fair. Those those for different reasons are really interesting products for me. I think Echo Studio Oh as one of the world's largest speaker manufacturers. I think it's our responsibility to kind of show the industry away. We'll see if it's the right way but we you think it is on where music could evolve in the house and so. I'm excited about that for that reason separately. I think I'm excited about Echo. Go Buds because so many customers I tell you it is the number one requested device that I get at dinner parties for pup up customers that love Alexa that like just let me have her when I'm jogging and I think I'm excited about finally being able to answer those questions in the affirmative the go-to dinner so the one. I'm most excited about an don't laugh at me but I think it is. I think one of the best ones is the echo dot with clock. I just I love the simplicity and like like what that product does. That really is my favorite product that we launched it and and I think we did launch. I really do think we lost a lot of great products. Today that customers are going to like you like the clock because you're like me and you wake up every hour on the hour in in the evenings. WanNa know what exactly I do and I. I like having a clock next to my bed. I do like the functionality of Alexa. I loved setting an alarm. I I like when you wake up and you can set a routine to tell you the weather and say what's going on and so I like the power of that next to my bed and then I I liked liked just the just some sort of Nice little led simple. Tell me what time it is. I know it's four in the morning. Why am I up. Go back to bed well. I'm a I'm an audio guy and so the things that I was most excited about where The all new echo studio it sounds phenomenal really excited to get one of those hi end audio coming from an Alexa speaker and it sounded like it was many speakers yeah. It's three D immersive audio it. It has DOBIE ATMA support. One speaker sounds amazing so it's a it's a really groundbreaking device excited to get one for myself. Alf and then the all new echo buds. You'll you'll see them later. They're incredibly small. They've got of course full native support for Alexa on the go and then it's also active noise cancellation from Bos- so you've got these incredibly small ear buds that are great for drowning out noise if you're you know outside or on a plane it's a really really great product.

This Industry Hasn't Changed in 50 Years. One Man Is Trying to Change That.
"Jamie. Thanks for joining us. Today is way getting started. Tell us about yourself well. Thanks for having me well. We are working on right. Now is a software application that converts audio and Video Co two tax using machines and with that we can do it in a fraction of the time that it would require for traditional services this and at a fraction of the cost so how we got there was looking at an industry that hadn't changed very much and transcription is something that's not changed a lot in the last fifty years and so with the new technologies algae's out there in terms of speech recognition and natural language processing and computing power. We've got opportunities to do things like what we're doing. Who and how did you come up with this idea. What was the initiative well. It started with a role I had at my previous this company zero and I spent a lot of time thinking about how we should market our products how we should talk to customers water customers saying about us and if we had all that information it'd be a lot easier to come up with campaigns and programs and sales strategies and what I realized with speech data is all those conversations. You're having with your customers. Whether it's in your customer support sportscenter or your sales teams that's great data but until recently it wasn't possible to mine all that data to derive insights and and now with the massive increases in computing power and and the amazing results you get from natural language processing in speech recognition it's become economical and so that's where the premise of the company started and we built it around those hypotheses and so what you go to market strategy. Oh Gee who you're going after what's the use case yeah well. We we recognize that as a I guess a North Star but where we started was like many startups we wanted to get the product in front of users as quickly as possible and so we built a tool a the basic tool to convert audio video text and we return a transcript while say you upload a thirty minute audio file will we can return a transcript in less than five minutes and at a cost of five dollars per hour so actually for thirty minutes is two dollars hours and fifty cents so we wanted to get out to market and see what kind of reception we would get and we did that and and the reality is with automatic transcription. The result from your convert conversion of audio to text is not one hundred percent perfect. There's still some issues with our algorithms machines that do this and a lot of it has to do with proper names and words that we just don't have in our dictionary and so what we did was stitched together the audio and the transcript into a browser so now what you could do is click on a word and you can actually play the audio behind and what that did was allow people to quickly clean up areas where there were mistakes and so that's the v. you want what we built and we got to market and we started realizing that a lot of journalists for example saw benefit in this and their use case a good example is they're doing a story. They interviewed a few people they WANNA get that story out as quickly as possible and now they can upload a file and interview file to us have a transcript back in and five minutes or less and they can work off that transcript and get their article out much faster obviously at a fraction of the cost the cost for human transcribers so that's one example and so who's your target market kit call centers sales people as a podcasters it anybody or yes we are focused on. Yes yes so I set up at. This is where we wanna get to and the ties to the beat of the enterprise selling where we're at today is more of consumers within side within large organizations so our target market is anyone that creates audio video content and right now. It's more so on the creative side so as you mentioned podcasters radio producers offers anyone that creates video content for their website or their brand. Even broadcasters are using our systems the reason we're focused on that right now is because of the quality of audio and video that these individuals create and they do much better through our the systems if your audio and video is of higher quality over time we're going to evolve the algorithms and get better at dealing with background around noise and and issues that hampered the audio quality and then we can get into the to call centers and and larger sales teams and what's your competitive advantage because there's a ton of people that are dabbling in this area and many different dimensions in directions well the number one reason that people choose sonics is because of accuracy and we've got are are proprietary technology that we use as well as leveraging a number of publicly available. API is that do speech recognition and that allows us to optimize around different languages different accents in different varying degrees of audio quality and people speaking at different times that type of thing so number one is is is accuracy and then the other is we built a number of tools around spoken word video or audio that make it easy for people to repurpose content and if you're you know a business. I think everybody knows content is king and the reality is a lot of the individuals that use sonics. I have amazing content but they aren't repurposing that content and getting the full benefit of Seo or optimizing for search and but how do you scale something like this because it sounds like you're biting off a big chunk. Yeah I mean that's That's a big question that is probably I believe quite a long answer that alone. I think we could have entire show about but I guess it's it's in parts and our experience our previous experiences. I've been through it a couple times and understand how you get through. The several state ages asked that right now. We're early in our journey. It's been a year and a half since sonic started and so we're we're really focused focused on customer feedback and making sure we're building the product in the way that it's going to benefit our target market and in terms of scaling. There's you know the way I guess I look at any organization and having to pass as I break it into three chunks. It's it's like what are we doing in terms of product. What are we doing in terms of people and then I lump everything else under programs. which would be sales programs marketing programs partnership programs? Thanks so we've got all of those going on where we are right. Now is mostly focused on the product side of things making sure. We're building something. That's valuable to the end user. The go to market strategy is have a website. Are you doing any advertising any content development. And how do you get customers. How did they find out about you. It's mostly organic right now and we have focused heavily on the content side of things so so we built a website optimize that for search and we do a number of things through social media and some direct orig- through those social media platforms that we have not yet paid for advertising other than we've done a an event event where we had a chance to talk to and meet face to face with customers but we're in the fortunate situation where this is a massive acid industry. There is a huge pain around transcription and the conversion of audio and video to text and it's really about optimizing search at this point and do you see that changing as far as your marketing strategy are you looking to raise is money to expand that or are you trying to bootstrap it yeah. That's that's another show unto itself as well so my last company we raised. I a lot of money was inexcessive. Two hundred and fifty million dollars and that is is I feel there's a time and a place and there's certain companies that require that kind of capital and it does come with pros and cons and with with Sonics. I'm taking a different tack and we're we're self-funding this and we're gonNA take that as long as we can and if there comes a point where I think it makes sense to raise capital because we really want to put the foot on the gas then we'll we will we'll entertain that ah but as of right now the the plan is to maintain this cell phone and so we're already driving revenues where building customers the prospects look good and that's a good situation to be in but I'll say never say never but I think when you look at the the traditional philosophy in Silicon Valley as you come here and the goal is to raise money and in my view the goal is to make money not raise money and so it's a bit different perspective although there's a lot of people that agree with what I'm saying being in our backyard it's it seems like the prize is to raise money but I feel like that. In some respects is a negative event and meaning. You need need to raise money to to get to where you you. WanNa get to but if you can build a business that is generating income. I think that's the ultimate goal. Yep because sometimes it's easier to raise money to make it so yes. I've seen that in many many times apparently but but I would think in a space like this is going to probably be whittled down to three major players. And how do you make sure that you're one of them. Well that that is the exact question I ask myself is this a winner takes all industry. If it was then yeah you wouldn't need to raise money money and compete and I'm not sure it is and that's why I think we're gonNA keep doing what we're doing and we'll see how the marketplace out now and build some great software for for people are GonNa Meantime and when you say it is that would imply that there's either niche or a capability ability that would fit a niche better than another one that does it because at the bottom of it everyone's using pretty much the same algorithms right yes so let me back up yeah. The the the nature of transcription is there are so many different market needs for it and I'd named a couple where we're focused on and so they're in our multiple opportunities. If you just focus in on in different industries so if it was just the legal industry for example or just medical industry or if you really focused on sales teams or call centers there's or podcasters a radio all those. I think we'll have vertical is solutions and we've already started to move down that path which is beyond just pure transcription the fact of getting a transcript back an audio or video file. is is one thing in an accurate way building tools for people those individuals to make their workflow faster is is where we're focused focused and we've done that with with podcasters for example a radio journalist for example and integrations into tools that they would already thirty us like Adobe Premiere are. Dobie premier or adobe addition and then we go as far as building publishing pushing tools to help get their she goes out to the market and in our case because we have built the system with the transcript stitch the audio guess what we now have an often we have the potential optimize their shows for search because because Google and other search engines do not crawl audio or video as well as they do text so those are some examples yeah I mean they're working on that supposedly -posedly though right I mean Google kind of announced that they're going to start searching podcasts. Yes yes they will again. I think I mean we work with Google pretty closely and we work with other. API's as well the reality is they don't build out systems the systems to the degree like they're more of a platform and so we see them as a partner as opposed to a a competitor
Drama in the Toy Industry
"Joining me in studio today from 'em funds. Bill Barker, thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. We're gonna talk are vs. We're gonna talk toys because we've got some legitimate drama in the toy industry. We're going to start with Dobie. I feel like almost any business. That's in the cloud business is doing well that's not a knock adobe in their management. But, you know, adobe second quarter revenue was up twenty five percent. Their guidance was a little weaker than I think some analysts were looking for. But that's not stopping the stock. It's up another four percent today. Yeah, it is continuing to do a great job growing compounding year-over-year. It's on a pretty good five year on, I would say the segments digital media was up twenty two percent digital experience thirty four percent publishing twelve percent. So all three of the major parts of the company growing at better or do significantly better than, you know, double digit range. Do you know historically, if nobody is an acquisitive company, it does seem like obviously, you've got behemoths out there like Microsoft and Amazon just a name to who are in the cloud business it, I mean you know, my joke at the top aside they're definitely some smaller players, and I don't know if part of what has fueled adobe for the past few years is. Being strategic with smaller acquisitions and, and just sort of bringing them into the fault. Yeah. It's enlarge part through acquisitions in two thousand eighteen which for those who can't do math was last year. You look confused for. Of the two of us in the room you're better at math than I am. Yes. That's fair. No last year. Yeah. One year difference magenta and Marquette auto. I don't know that I'm even pronouncing Marquette to marquee, to maybe were acquired, and so they've been well, integrated into the platform and are contributing to that twenty five percent annual growth, little harder to grow window at the size that adobe is at something approaching twenty five percent without making some good acquisitions, even in the, you know, given how much businesses moving to the cloud, even so that this that kind of growth needs needs some acquisitions in most cases, do you think that's why the guidance was maybe a little weaker than people were expecting just because there's only so much? You wanna telegraph what you're going to be doing when it comes to acquisitions, well, they have a history of being a pretty conservative with their guidance. So I think that as you can tell from the market's reaction today, basically. People are blowing that off. Nobody believes them. Yeah. That's nice. They're, they're giving some conservative guidance, and we know that given their history. And this is the kind of thing that you only, you know, chief over time is the belief by the market that, oh, these guys are going to do better than they're saying. Let's move onto winnebago. Third quarter reports seemed to be a little bit of a mixed bag, although the profit margins appear to be improving for winnebago. And typically, when we talk about the RV industry, more more often than not you. And I are talking about Thor industries, not. Not winnebago but went Bego seems to be doing a pretty nice job of late. Yeah. Winnebago, which is the name that people know best for arby's and is best known for the motorhomes portion of the business. And so the totals side of the business is larger for the industry than the motorhomes motor home is the, you know, the large vehicle bus, like structure where the housing unit is all part of the, the motor vehicle, and then the Togo's where you hit something onto the back of, of your vehicle and winnebago made a good acquisition. Couple years ago, grand design, which is a fast growing towell and winnebago really didn't have much going on prior to that in the total space. So as that part of the industry has been growing winnebago is now. And. Active participant in, in that growth and actually capturing market share in large part from Thor. So you've got sore, which is the largest RV maker, just made a major acquisition in Europe, which closed last quarter, and then you've got forest river, which is owned by Berkshire Hathaway those two are, are far larger than when a Bego, which has now grown to about ten percent of the market. And then they're few scattered players that are not especially meaningful beyond that. But when Bago also has done, what a lot of in players in the industry are doing which is diversifying into the marine segment. They quired Chris craft, which is probably known to too many as designer beautiful wooden boats that are sort of timeless and elegant, and that's a good thing to do is to have some diversification, because the RV industry are. Into a lot of trouble last year when dealers overstocked early in two thousand eighteen and a year later, they're still working down the overstocking. And so when obey goes numbers on their face are not great. But they are pointing to some brighter days ahead as everybody in the RV space has been doing for a while. The acquisition that Thorne made that you mentioned in Europe. Is is that a diversification play or do they or is there, some RV maker in your like I? In large part because of where I live, when I think of RV's I just think of, you know, RV's here in America. I don't necessarily think of Europe as necessarily big market, but I'm, I'm happy to be proven wrong on that. Well, they're, they're more in the smaller vehicles, and you see in the US there, you know, in many parts of Europe, smaller roads and not quite the car culture that we have, but they are a big camping culture. And so they're more sort of camper sized things. And yeah, there's a decent decent part of, of the market that you can capture there. It is diversification thing for Thor. And it's a good time to diversify given the, you know issues with the inventory for arby's here, but getting back to winnebago, they're pointing to, again, good growth in the TOA bowls from the grand design, and motorhomes. Itself lagged I think there were off sales or about thirty some percent year year which couple years ago that would have been disastrous for winnebago when they had not yet acquired a tow -able in an a marine unit. It's not. I mean for as well known as the winnebago brand is, this is not a big company. I think it's like one in a quarter billion in market cap, so but it's nice to see that. They're both diversifying their revenue stream and because of that starting to improve their financial picture. Yeah. They are unlike sore treating sort of reasonably close to their fifty two week high. I think not you know not not right at the fifty two week high, but they're not not a long ways off Thorpe still basically cut in half from from where it was about eighteen months ago. Quick shadow to sprout social for sporting today's show. What makes people love the brands you love connection.
Samsung, Five Million Dollars And Eleven Years discussed on Kim Komando
"So could you imagine how much you think he'd spend for a laptop a Samsung laptop eleven years old loaded with viruses, and malware, and nasty where it's been air gapped? How do you how much you think you're willing to pay for that? Well right now. It's being auctioned off, and it's at one point five million dollars. Okay. I have an idea, why don't you just go ahead and take a laptop don't put any security software on Dobie antivirus after just hook it up to the internet. And then you can have your very own for far
Adobe Warns Customers of Potential Legal Action for Using Older Versions of Creative Cloud Apps
"Users of older versions of adobe, creative cloud apps, so their subscribers to adobe apps. But they haven't updated to newer, versions, even though they're entitled to, they were warned in the last week that they need to stop using those older versions because they could potentially face infringement claims from third party companies due to ongoing litigation. This is this is a case where they're adobe is in a dispute. With other companies it's rumored to be Dolby labs actually about patents. I think on some of the software that adobe has modified in the meantime, the older version still infringe, and it's one of these cases where you're paying adobe, you don't want out grade for various reasons for compatibility reasons, perhaps, and adobe saying, well, if you don't upgrade, maybe you'll get sued or maybe we need to warn you of this. So we don't get sued and this is a complicated legal thing. And it's probably been overreacted to people, but at the same time it is amazing to me that we live in an era where you've got subscription software. The maker of the subscription software tells you, you have to update or your potentially going to be. Legally liable which is fascinating. On the other hand. At least it'll be didn't automatically delete everybody's versions, which is the other thing I suppose it could have done. But Stephen, what is this, this is this is not what my that? This is no good. It's really feels like a, a lawyer a lawyer letter that made it out to customers. Because it seems so. Scary and over the top. Yeah. And clearly Dobie has some sort of situation going on just pushing it to their customers without a lot of context is not awesome. No, it's not. And they also made a change this part of this is they also made a change that said from now on, you can only download the two most recent major versions. So I think it's funny because I never really thought about the fact that depending on who you're working with and what your hardware is and things like that. You might not stay up to date with the latest versions, or maybe you just don't want to, like keep having your self or your people have to go through adapting to new versions as a single user of Dobie, Photoshop C C. I get the new versions. I'm like, oh, okay, there's new version of Photoshop and it's kind of nice because I just get them as part of my subscription. But this is the downside of, of that is that if you wanna stay behind, even if you're paying if you wanna stay behind for some reason, they're going to drag. Into the present. But I really I mean I could read this as being that this was potentially an enormous disaster that was different because it's subscription software. But I also could read this, like, if this was the old days and two versions ago of, of Dobie software had this was found to be infringing on a patent adobe would just have to pay. And now instead of just having to pay they have their lawyers, send a message to all of their subscribers. Saying, quick get off that version. So we don't have to pay or you might pay, which is right? I just that's, that's my immediate thought is that is that in the old days. Those products were shipped and, you know, that would be it would be a done deal. But now it's in there in this kind of interim state where people have them, but they also could upgrade.

"And here's the coolest feature the antenna, the antenna will automatically point north for the best signal, and you know, what's cool about this. Is you could actually use it as a compass? I guess it's gonna point north automatically. Yes. Cool. I mean, it's smart then so it'll point the antenna for you. It's got other smarts inside. It's easy to use everyday functions. That were you know, in the past you have to push the button Ford, you can do it. Now by just saying a phrase you could say monolith. Be kind rewind the player will automatically rewind the tape. That's in you can say monolith. Skip to the next song. The player will automatically skip. To the next track. Which is cool. I don't know if you remember the old days of having to hold down the play and fast forward button until you knew the song was over. And then you could go do it. You could just speak to it and say, hey, next on it will do it all for you. It's cool. Yeah. You know? And I kinda lost it here on this one because there's even back in the eighties. When I was driving my Camaro. There is really no reason to rewind because the heads would just flip over, and then you would just start playing on the other side. So I think that's kind of interesting feature. I didn't see anywhere in the specs where the head would just flip over. So this rewind thing is kind of the only knock I have on this dual speakers thousand total watts of class d power with enhanced base easily filling large size room with deep rich in detailed sound. And as they say, let's get the party started. And they built in Dolby noise reduction got Dobie A, B C and S noise reduction formats included each format varies ineffectiveness in reducing. Around his on all your favorite recordings from the seventies eighties nineties and a lot of people use the Dobie ANC, not a lot of people include the Dobie and s in their noise reduction. So that's pretty cool. And you know, one thing though, Brayden that his that you would hear null cassettes. Our company we pump in white noise to kind of. Deaden you make it. So you can't hear conversations from faraway. And I kind of thought the his- that came out of Mike cassettes were kinda like that. So that way if you don't wanna hear the people in the backseat the his- was a great way in between songs. You don't have to listen to the people that are talking to the back. Yes. Like privacy Gillard privacy shield. Yeah. Exactly. And then there's the H X pro it adds additional high frequency headroom improving. The signal noise ratio. It's so good. It's always on. So you don't even have to turn this feature on it just they they're confident that it will not bother anybody. Compatibility is compatible with type one two three and four cassettes. Additionally, the monolith portable cassette players also D C compatible. They say we believe no format should be left behind. And this was kind of funny here. Brin the comfort it it comes with a memory foam shoulder cushioned. So you can hold the boombox hours at a time. I remember going to the beach walking, I where we had the park Zuma beach. Sometimes we couldn't get parking. We'd have to park on PCH, and we'd have to carry our equipment all the way quit like is chest and radios and whatnot from from PCH all the way down to the beach. This would have been a godsend back then because I wouldn't it wouldn't hurt my shoulders as much heavier. I mean, it's not like they're light got class the amplifiers in it. Yeah. Heck, yeah. So anyway, great product. It's amazing. You know, we notice a lot of times always the beginning of April that come up with these types of products. So it's right now it's out of stock it if it's got four star. So somebody must have really liked it or five stars. Actually, if you get a chance to check it out. Yeah.

"And I'm my kind of L DR review on that was like as a mini laptop. I think it's brilliant as an ipad replacement like as you're using for the things you traditionally would use nine Pat for it. It's not as good, and I think the ipod I had pro is kind of the inverse of that whereas dock to a keyboard and to try to use it in more, traditional computing tasks because of the software and because of some of the limitations because of the software of the ecosystem, even though it's got some great apps. I don't think it's as good. But then you have this whole other world capabilities of all these touch, I tablet first things that just don't exist anywhere else. It's like can we have both pleased? But. We're not we're not there in an era where apple got on state apple gave to employee's from Dobie yet unjust like a lot of stage time to dangle a demo. It was like a little adobe presentation within the presentation that was the point by the way, where they were five layers of parentheses down where literally they had handed it all the way down five, and then they had to come back up at the end and pop the stack. It was hilarious. I counting Tim handed to this guy who him to this person who hands it to this person who ends Dobie demo or anyway, a lot of adobe time for Photoshop. It's a big deal. It it's not just a big deal because so many businesses industries professionals rely on the adobe workflow, and they can't just use affinity photo. Even though it's great. They need Photoshop because everything is based on Photoshop. That's that's great. But it's also the the symbolism of it, right? Which is like the you won't take seriously until we're running the real photo. Shop. Well, here we are. We are a real computer. We're running the real Photoshop. That's great. And yet I keep thinking to myself final cut is not on the ipad logic on the ipad. And as you pointed out, the I work apps are kind of laggards compared to what other companies like Microsoft or doing on Apple's own platform, and that goes back to like beyond like, they're all these questions like apple software. Just can't like they are killing it on the hardware side with the ipad pro. And then the software is like there are other people who are doing a better job with ipad software than apple. It's a really frustrating moment. And maybe they know it and they've worked they're working on it. But the fact is today, it doesn't matter what I was thirteen might have their shipping these things now. Right. I almost wonder if part of the reason you see this connect as office, and look I'm not saying this as a Microsoft employee. I'm saying this just as facts office on ipad is better than the I work suite on I. I might argue. It's better than office on the MAC. I wanted to both the same team, and it is the same code base. Actually, they worked for more than a decade to get all of office on the same code base. I mean, obviously, it's different. You know, a native stuff for each thing. But it's it's all one shared code base now across all the app, so it's which is incredible in and of itself. But. Which also I think is different and probably better than than the IRS MAC OS, I work situation as but part of the reason, I think it's better a, you know, you have people who've who've been focused on undoing this stepper for longer but be like one makes money and as a real profit center, and there's an incentive to make it better. Whereas I almost wonder when apple sorted making all their software free and less expensive. If that in some ways de incentivizes whether it's intentional or not, you know, the focus on improving some of those things because when they used to charge even like one hundred and twenty dollars for for for Ileye for I work, or whatever, you know. There was some money was coming in from that. Now, it's free in it. And it's it's given out. And so I almost wonder like what's the incentive if you're apple she continue to push that forward. Whereas if you're. Third party, you're making money off of this..

"Let's talk about the big event that Phil Schiller was this week not the apple vent, but Dobie max, Michael, Steve, Irwin different. If Meghan, he had some and Klin coverage yell out of the event. But the big story was Photoshop on ipad, like real Photoshop, Pat not like footage shop, touch or some mobile version historically adobe, like I used to cover the more before Steve Kerr joined us, but. Historically, they were shut edgy was take a feature from an athlete Photoshop or light room and make that whole feature its own app, iphone and ipad. And you know, you have a whole folder of adobe apps called voter shop, but it's like when feature out of Photoshop and worked, but it wasn't what people wanted. So now they say that they have full show Photoshop with desktop sync in this new cloud format coming next year, which is a big deal for I Pat right. Is, and when you regionalized pay came out, I feel like for short was always the app that people like they should be so good with a top because you can touch your fingers and then the crazy. Tabas never gonna be passable, and I'll shop like you're going to computer for that. And clearly it hasn't panned out that way like at least in terms of role pricing power, the ipad so well on their way to run. It is false as a laptop or an imac, even like. There are still some limiting hardware problems at the moment was like ram and stuff. Probably just the sheer amount of ram is some great, your own magnetism, an ipad, the app at Kearney myself four gigs and be surprised if that changes with a twelve x. Like I think it's going to get much more. I guess we'll find out, but. The chips Oslo like they can definitely run the core fish of engine, and it isn't just a port of the mammoth into the ipad. The foundation is the same and it means you're documents will be cross compatible, but they're building new, you I on top of it. And in some interviews, Stephen explains how they don't necessarily going to bring every new feature to the. I've had the every existing feature Frazier, they using the new platforms away to like refine it down similar to how apple did with like Fanta, pretend where they dropped the legacy from the kind of start over and it seems that that's what they're doing here. I think so. Nice like Lahmar and you can see why like excited about it right? Like this is something that could really rework on the ipad, either with your finger or using the pencil as the stylus to drawer and select and do everything you can. And this just this. This like. Waits behind the four show brand that picks a mayor or Finney just they didn't. They, they just don't have it like you walk into a business and be like switch the ipad for your crave needs. We've Finney like that was look at you blankly, but if you can walk in and say, we have proper Photoshop different different story just to the name. And then as long as it can deliver on most of the major features, everybody wants decent performance and capability. Like I think it's going to really well and help solidify the ipad as post PC probably one of the biggest landmarks on that journey in a long while. Yes. And then I was thinking earlier and forgot to mention when we were discussing. I've had rumors expectation. Is that like with the iphone, they were phones different ten, their phones that looked better than the iphone. Seven. And before the ipad, it's like you, you cannot find a better tablet than the ipad pro. Right now you can find eight top later. The moment keeps stopping making. You can find like single one often rations of like the latest attempt from like x. company. But like there's a medical petition is like marks surface. Yeah, exactly. There's no was a company essential had the phone with, you know, almost had like a little little little peninsula. Yeah. Was pretty good. So. Had this isn't like that, like we don't like the chin and forehead, but we take it and there's nothing better that we like apple do that. And now they're doing that like they're, they're like, catching up with the phone. So never I've had is there's not a competition for it. I guess competition is like, which is the whole marketing campaign. This is cool..

"But last week we mentioned my. Apple TV Dobie at MOS, input woes. This December is I could not use AC where you turn the TV on the TV remote and all the most with my aunt Massamba and it would go to each in my four which had nothing attached to the input. And so at the fish out the actual TV remote in the inputs. Took a few days where I just went back to the classic optical cable way, and then gave that atmos- and then my family was happy because they weren't getting the wrong input and magic solution, but then did get feedback from four or five people listeners that that was very helpful. In some situations. It may come down to my TV being an LGBT seven model of allowed and it not being able to power and process atmos- on its own, but the seven can evidently, but ultimately what it came down to plugging in the apple TV through an g. my port and plug knee and the sound bar through another Asian, my port and I always thought of the TV h my ports as inputs like you plug up device to it, and it goes to the TV doesn't send as it doesn't syn- data from the TV to like what is connected to. But evidently there's not the case. It goes both ways which gets a lot of people may be known. But then also my sound bar. I'm using the. H my out port, I think to go into the TV and it's just like and really sending audio from the TV through the outpost on the sound bar. So it's confusing and how it works. Never would have guessed to try this. But a few people recommended it and it works. So I've got four h. in my ports, which is a lot from Auburn, TV's and one is taken up by the bar and the other is the apple TV, and then another PlayStation and another is a switch. So all four are taken by three input devices, output device, but Lassissi is working c. c. is totally working. I'm playing atmos- at got Dobie vision, and it's it's what I what I expected to work. And now it works and I'm really happy about that. The only thing is like a slight delay when you turn on the TV, the Siri remote, you know, apple TV comes on, TV lights up. You see everything. And then the sound. Catches up with it at first like nothing. There's no sounded first and then it catches up. But then at that point, like it's a matter of seconds and then everything is in sync, you know, it's all powered on, and it's way more convenient than having the big TV your mode out to. This tumor wonder much better than two. So I'm happy. They're the other thing is that the. The Nike run club app on the apple watch is made for this smaller screens and apple has version of the series four wives, the Nike plus version. That's got these new watch faces and has which have the complication for the Nike club app like default, you can't change it and you can choose to face, but not that complication. And I expected when I was reviewing the watch the Nike run club out with the data for the new screen sizes before that watch came out because it had a two week later released eight and like, that's, that's probably why I thought that it was later as every year. Well, it's been like three weeks now and they have an updated the app yet, and it's becoming like a joke to check the app store for, and it's just incredible that it's not cheap. It like the Nike faces have a launch about for the Nike Bronco back. Right? And so that's the sensually Defoe on the watch faces of this Nike repulse run globe and the nice she's and the. Out does no take advantage of the screen is just let like a mall. It's the Applewhite's Nike plus like it's not the apple watch sport that you can install the app on like it's part of it. And Tim cook is like, has has has a role in the board at Nike. Like there's this connection there and they've not got this sorted out and w w c last year. Mean friend of the show house with gray.
