Robyn Pfaffman: Justin Pearson Should Wear the Uniform of a State Rep
"Justin Pearson is a new state representative, he's like one of these black power dudes, got the big power fro and he is perpetually offended about everything. Actually gave out copies of the 1619 Project on day one of his time at the state House, and now he's catching fire because he's breaking dress protocol by not wearing a coat and tie. Instead, he's wearing this West African garb, which I've been it's basically a blouse. Right. And so I have given this a lot of thought. And what instantly comes to mind is a lawsuit that I covered many moons ago in Atlantic City, New Jersey involving casino workers, specifically Todd, cocktail waitresses, and these gals signed up to be cocktail waitresses to where the uniform where they worked. And some of them packed on a couple of pounds if you know what I mean. One, too many donuts later. And the casino got rid of them or put them on ice or whatever was going on. And these women sued and guess what they lost. You know why they lost? Because when they took the job, they signed on the dotted line that they were going to wear the uniform at their office and their office happened to be a casino, which leads me to airline pilot. When you sign up to be an airline pilot, you also agree to wear the uniform of said airlines. You can't come in there and wear whatever blouse or shirt or fig leaf you want. You know what I'm saying? And so my issue was this guy is, I know he's trying to make all sorts of statements and make this an entire racial thing. Which by the way, the woman who didn't let him in was, as I read it, was also black and she's just trying to follow the protocol,

A Meditation on John 1:43-51 for Thursday Before the Epiphany
"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to John, chapter one versus 43 through 51. After Jesus had decided to leave for Galilee, he met Philip and said, follow me. Philip came from the same town Beth seda, as Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathaniel and said to him, we have found the one Moses wrote about in the law. The one about whom the prophet wrote, he is Jesus, son of Joseph from Nazareth. From Nazareth, said Nathaniel, can anything good come from that place? Come and see replied Philip. When Jesus saw Nathaniel coming, he said of him. There is an israelite who deserves the name incapable of deceit. How do you know me, said Nathaniel? Before Philip came to call you, said Jesus, I saw you under the fig tree. Nathaniel answered rabbi, you are the son of God, you are the king of Israel, Jesus replied, you believe that just because I said I saw you under the fig tree, you will see greater things than that. And then he added, I tell you most solemnly, you will see heaven laid open and above the son of man, the angels of God ascending and descending. What word made this passage come alive for you. What did you sense the lord saying to you?

Day 2 of The Bible in a Year: The Fall of Adam and Eve
"Genesis three and four. Now, The Serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the lord God had made, he said to the woman, did God say you shall not eat of any tree in the garden. And the woman said to The Serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, but God said you shall not eat of the fruit of the tree, which is in the midst of the garden. Neither shall you touch it lest you die. But The Serpent said to the woman, you will not die. For God knows that when you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God knowing good and evil. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. And she also gave some to her husband, and he ate. And the eyes of both were opened and they knew that they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the sound of the lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day. And the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the lord got among the trees of the garden, but the lord God called to the man and said to him, where are you? And he said, I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid myself. He said, who told you that you are naked? Have you eaten of the tree which I commanded you not to eat? The man said, the woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me the fruit of the tree and I ate. Then the lord God said that the woman, what is this that you've done? The woman said, the servant beguiled me and I ate. The lord God said to The Serpent. Because you have done this. Cursed, are you above all cattle, and above all wild animals? Upon your belly you shall go and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He shall bruise your head and you shall bruise his heel. To the woman he said, I will greatly multiply your pain and childbearing. And pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband and he shall rule over you. And to Adam, he said, because you have listened to the voice of your wife and eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, you shall not eat of it, cursed is the ground because of you. In toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life, thorns and thistles it shall bring forth to you, and you shall eat the plants of the field. In this what of your face you shall eat bread until you return to the ground for out of it, you were taken. You are dust into dust you shall return.

Day 351 of The Bible in a Year: Draw Near to God
"We're reading James chapter three, four and 5. Colossians, letter of St. Paul to the lashes. Chapters one and two, as well as the book of proverbs, chapter 30 versus 7 through 9. The letter of James, chapter three, taming the tongue. Let not many of you become teachers my brethren. For you know that we who teach shall be judged with greater strictness. For we all make many mistakes, and if anyone makes no mistakes in what he says, he's a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also. If we put bits into the mouths of horses that they may obey us, we guide their whole bodies. Look at the ships also. Though they are so great and are driven by strong winds, they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So the tongue is a little member and boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire. And the tongue is a fire. The tongue is an unrighteous world among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the cycle of nature and set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird of reptile and sea creature can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no human being contained the tongue, a restless evil full of deadly poison. With it we bless the lord and father, and with it we curse men, who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brethren, this ought not to be so. Does a spring put forth from the same opening freshwater and brackish? Can a fig tree my brethren yield olives or a Grapevine figs? No more consult water yield fresh. Two kinds of wisdom. Who is wise in understanding among you? By his good life, let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but it's earthly, unspiritual, devilish. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable. Gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits without uncertainty or insincerity. And the harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. Friendship with the world. What causes wars and what causes fightings among you? Is it not your passions that are at war in your members? You desire and do not have so you kill. And you covet and can not obtain so you fight in wage war. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive because you ask wrongly to spend it on your passions. Unfaithful creatures, do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore, whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Frank Figliuzzi: DeSantis Violated the Law Transporting Illegals
"An NBC, check this out. Cut number two. NBC News national security contributor, Frank, fig liuzi, talking to a progressive radio host on SiriusXM. Oh, yeah, Florida's got an immigration problem. No. They didn't swim over. They were in Texas and the center center Florida plane just because he wants in on the stunt, right? He wants to say, yeah, I hate brown people as much as everybody else does, right? I'm in on this. And so, yeah, I do think there's a violation of law. It's not the trafficking law, but it's the law that says you can't transport undocumented migrants across state lines. Is there a criminal penalty with that law do you know of him? That's enough. I got to tell you something right now and I want to get your reaction to this. I'm going to tell you this. If illegal immigration is as important an issue to the American people as I believe it is, the Republicans just secured a giant midterm election victory.

Kash Patel Will Never Stop Putting Out the Truth
"A former assistant director for counterintelligence at the FBI who now gets paid by the swamp to talk on TV shows nobody watches got Frank fig Lucy who had this to say on a radio program about somebody called cash. Cash Patel better get an attorney soon because cash Patel is the guy saying, I knew all about this standing declassification order. I know all about it. Oh, good. You'll be telling a grand jury about that process, cash. Are you afraid cash of this individual? Now, since he seems to have the same approach to everything else as the fake news mafia and the corrupt FBI agents has, which is to lie and put on a disinformation campaign. As I said publicly, it's been reported that there was a standing order. And so I believe that to be accurate because it was made by journalists who report accurately. But this Joker is in the same boat as the other crooks that were terminated from government service as a result of my Russia gate investigation that I led with chairman Nunes. The same people calling for me to get a lawyer. Let's just put it on display. Peter strzok, Andy mccabe, Andrew weissman, and whoever this nobody is with a fancy title in government are all people whose glorified FBI I destroyed because I put out the truth. And I will never stop doing that. And most of these guys got fired because of my investigation. So it's amazing that some guy in a T-shirt given some podcasts at the JV puff powder parade is online telling me to get a lawyer. If it takes, if it comes to that for me to tell the American people the truth, I did it for the Russia gate. Excuse me, the Jan 6 subpoena. And it costs $200,000. There's no amount of money in the world that is worth more than the truth. And I will fight for it every single day. God

Dinesh Reviews Senator Chuck Grassley's Revelations About the FBI
"Senator chuck grassley of Iowa has been writing letters to Merrick Garland and to the FBI director Christopher wray and these letters normally I'm not big on letter writing because I'm like a letter is nothing more than a kind of piece of paper that very often these guys are going to just toss into the trash can, big deal and sometimes our side has a tendency to think that if you write a letter, you've somehow done something. No, you haven't done anything. But in this case, we have grassley, who is an influential figure on the, in the Senate judiciary. And so it's the committee that has oversight over the FBI. And writing on judiciary committee letter had grassley makes two points. And both the points have been derived from FBI whistleblowers. These are FBI agents who have come forward and have apparently revealed two interesting things. The first one is that the FBI has been very involved in suppressing, suppressing investigations connected with Hunter Biden and the Biden crime family. So this is very telling that the FBI has been deliberately ignoring evidence and they have been using the fig leaf. In fact, they've been using the pretense that they know to be untrue. That this is Russia and disinformation.

Exposing the Charlatans of Black Lives Matter
"Well, Mike, I want to start out by just talking about Black Lives Matter. You know, we've heard of the controversy of Patrice colors and a spending of Black Lives Matter and that to me is the smoke. I mean, that is the fire, the blaze and the fire, but the smoke, which is what kills most people in these fire situations according to my father who was a firefighter. The smoke inhalation is what kills people. So I want you to dive into for the audience the smoke inhalation effect of the residual effect of what Black Lives Matter has done, not just necessarily the financial issues. Yeah, I'm very happy you put it that way because what I always say is that look, apparently there's grift involved, they have bought these mansions and Toronto and Southern California, in other places. But to me there will always be grifters. This is actually a feature not a bug of communism, brezhnev and andropov all had their hunting villas called dashas in the Russian countryside, Fidel Castro died a billionaire. To me, much more important than this is the ideology of the black lives matters organizations and allow me here a Brandon to make a difference. I don't talk about the concept, I embrace the concept. Black Lives Matter to me, it's important to assert that Black Lives Matter. I believe that. Disagree with me. But I believe that it's important to assert it because of history that we don't even need to explain. The organizations and their founders, though, is what matters to me because the Black Lives Matter global network foundation were founded by committed, I would say fanatical marxists whose project is central planning who really just use social justice as a fig leaf and who are having a huge impact on our lives today.

"Fig and in the early days it would just break wouldn't work or it would slightly change one of the settings, which was really important to them. And yeah, we've just been working on integrating with everything, which is important to us back, which compatibility is really important. And now that we've finally got to the point where most people download fig and there are zero problems whatsoever. Now we can really start scaling it. So yeah, integrations has just, we want food to work everywhere. That's the thing. It's like, you shouldn't have to choose. Should I use this? Or should I use fig? Should you use whatever the hell you want? Fig is going to be there. We've integrated them. Do you guys have a system for detecting bugs and pushing them to you guys like crash tool management or something? So testing has become really, really important because they're just so many variables at play when you're building a desktop app. You are not insulated from the user's local machine. And especially when you're a terminal extension where people do all sorts of strange things in their dot files, you have to plan for everything. So we have a pretty comprehensive system of file tests that basically set up development environments with various different dot file plugins. Or starship or pure, and various permutations that we've seen in the wild that have historically broken figs integration. And then anytime we're making changes to our shell integration, we run a test suite across all of these different environments and make sure that the events that we expect to get are still working. So that's improved the stability a lot. And then in terms of crash reporting, we use century, but we really, really make sure that we don't track any kind of user data. These are just reports about if something crashes and panics. Well, we'll send us stack trace up. I guess to wrap up, I'd like to get a sense for a little bit more about how engineering has gone and some of the, I guess, like cloud services you've used to build the new syncing systems and if there's any other engineering internals you could talk about, I guess we explored that in some detail in the last episode, but maybe we could revisit the engineering and go.

No President Cares About Free Speech - Joe Biden Included
"Do you think you believe biden was was actually elected and i'm i'm fairly certain we're going to see information to the contrary soon. Everybody will have to look at it. But let's say he was the question that i have because i know you have to go. Do you think that he and his administration genuinely care about free speech. Because i don't get the impression that he that that he in the office of the president who has this tremendous bully pulpit that he gives a fig about what we are talking about right now. I don't think it even crosses his mind with the minds of the people as administration. I think they're making it work for them. Which to me is the greater scandal. Well i know. Joe biden for now. It's forty years. I like him as a person. I think he the right man for the job at this point in time. He's helping the combination. But no president kicker free speech. Thomas jefferson before he became president said given a choice between a government without newspapers or newspaper without governments. I would surely pick newspapers without government. Then he was president and then he issued a different statement. He said if nobody read newspapers. We'd be better off in smarter and fairer than if people read newspapers. So no incumbents like the media particularly and joe biden himself. I think we'll support free speech. But they're going to be people in his administration. He's appointed some people who are radically on the left just the way Republicans have appointed. Sometimes people are radically on the right. We need to move more to the center. We need to move more to all the old debate between genuine liberals in genuine conservatives. Both of whom bull we freedom of speech. I used to debate bill buckley. All the time on his television she was a conservative. A liberal enjoyed each other. We ran for a drink after we got along. There was no cancelled culture. I crave for the days of bill.

Wanna leave some room for spontaneity for sure but Don't want to assume that you know your partner is totally free that day. Just because it's a weekend or something so yeah such as today. It's in the family gallagher that i'm going to be talking with mark today on a podcast. 'save here is there. What's your mix between digital and analog are you using notebooks or paper for any you're like pre software work say like notebook Just a good old little sketchbook notebook sometimes lined papers sometimes the dotted grid. Pr that's really nice for sketching Just to get off the computer for a second. But i do feel like as i'm more mature in my career that i don't get sucked that often so i am tending to jump into the software a little bit more but it is really refreshing when you turn it off for a bit. Go sit at a table without a computer. Just get to sketching johnny things down. It's it's something that i do as you probably do it more but yeah i think that like i know my side person you you know. Obviously you my story with journaling and key on the option in all of that. And i still. I still journal digitally but i also am using. I've always used barron fake notebooks. But like i think you know we could be. We can be kind to ourselves in. Allow ourselves flexibility. That you know you can do both. It doesn't have to be these hard rules like. Oh no only. But i was like that i was like no i needed all logged in before. Keough is using app called day. One need everything in there. You know versus now you know it's in there but it's also a notebook said i think when you can disconnect from that storage thing or the look up and appreciate the actual practice or if you're sketching like what you're getting from that actual practice than i don't know i feel like a whole little world opens up a hundred percent. Yeah i think just the act of writing down sometimes even if you're in a meeting at work and somebody's talking about something even if you got some notes down and you don't even review them later on just the act of of writing them down. Anything helps helps you log the idea or helps you can revisit that later even without checking your book again for sure last question for you man when it comes to your designing creative world what do you what do you think in most about these days with scott your mind asking questions or excited about or is there anything that you can leave us with on that front. I think you talked a little bit about process earlier I you know. I think like you said that the district process. And how you how you do it in following the same rigid way.

I'm giving <Speech_Female> hints throughout the day <Speech_Female> and sort of my conversation <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and okay. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Yes so <Speech_Female> that's kind <Speech_Male> of how it <SpeakerChange> comes <Speech_Male> to be <Speech_Male> mazing <Speech_Male> will last <Speech_Male> question <Speech_Male> for you. <Speech_Male> You know you've <Speech_Male> there are so <Speech_Male> many awesome lessons <Speech_Male> in the book and <Speech_Male> you've just had such <Speech_Male> a <Speech_Male> wonderful <Speech_Male> career <Speech_Male> and continued avid <Speech_Male> wonderful career. I <Speech_Male> imagine you've picked up a ton <Speech_Male> of different lessons across <Speech_Male> your <Speech_Male> your <SpeakerChange> work in <Speech_Male> your experience. <Speech_Male> Is there anything <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> you know. Just is top <Speech_Male> of mind that you'd <Speech_Music_Male> like to leave with us <Speech_Music_Male> as the <Speech_Music_Male> listeners. Something <Speech_Male> to think about <Speech_Male> or <Speech_Male> prioritize <Speech_Male> or whatever there's <Speech_Male> no <SpeakerChange> there are no rules <Speech_Male> with this. <Speech_Female> Yeah i <Speech_Female> think that the most important <Speech_Female> thing <Speech_Male> to think <Speech_Female> about is <Speech_Female> that <Speech_Female> you don't have to figure <Speech_Female> it all out <Speech_Female> right. And <Speech_Female> i think that so <Speech_Female> often <Speech_Female> you know were were <Speech_Female> on this race <Speech_Female> or we think that <Speech_Female> you know we <Speech_Female> have to go and do <Speech_Female> something you <Speech_Female> know in six months from now <Speech_Female> next <SpeakerChange> week <Speech_Female> whatever instead <Speech_Female> <Silence> i think that <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> you know giving yourself <Speech_Female> a break and <Speech_Female> actually aiding <Speech_Female> and starting to <Speech_Female> think about things <Speech_Female> and making progress <Speech_Female> towards the goal <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> is the most <Speech_Female> important thing and <Speech_Female> when you you <Speech_Female> know freak yourself <Speech_Male> out too much about <Speech_Male> These <Speech_Female> ideas <Speech_Female> these goals whatever <Speech_Female> than off <Speech_Female> tax. You just don't do <Speech_Female> them. And i think <Speech_Female> that the idea of actually <Speech_Female> getting <Speech_Female> making steps <Speech_Female> and making more progress <Speech_Female> towards something <Speech_Female> You <Speech_Female> find that you're almost <Speech_Female> there <Speech_Female> and then <Speech_Female> you know <Speech_Female> then you can actually <Speech_Female> really <Speech_Female> throw the gas on <Speech_Female> but i think that <Speech_Female> so <Speech_Female> often <Speech_Female> fear gets in the <Speech_Music_Female> way of <Speech_Music_Male> <SpeakerChange> of <Speech_Female> you know <Speech_Male> potential <Speech_Female> failure potential. <Speech_Female> I <Speech_Female> could never do it. <Speech_Music_Male> And <SpeakerChange> i think <Speech_Music_Female> that we need to <Speech_Male> <Silence> stop ourselves <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> from going in that direction <Speech_Male> before <SpeakerChange> we even <Speech_Male> start <Speech_Male> such such <Speech_Male> a great message. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Well that <Speech_Male> is a <Speech_Male> wrap everyone for <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> today's <Speech_Male> thinker.

"It's just you know. That's that's how it all came about. But i think it really. Did you know spur. Very similar to Why launched a product launched hint. Water was just to help people and Yeah i love it. I love it so much. I mean i'm sure people listening can feel the energy and the passion behind both those stories. And when you link link that passion and that desire to help i mean there's there's no surprise that there's the results in success link with that right so it's really nice story last thing i want to dive into for goes wide Love to know what your journaling practices. If you're still journaling or like just kind of what what you're doing on a day to day basis In terms of stain mentally fit than productive and all the inefficient all that like what are some of your tools. Enacts in whatnot. Yeah well i think i'm. I'm constantly idea dating innovating however you want to think about it and so i'm i'm sketching out a couple of ideas every day very naturally i find that once you start getting in the habit and getting in the practice of it It really does become very natural for you to be doing it on. You know every couple days. I i can't say that i actually some people practice it like every morning. You know they get up and they they like meditation. They really get into that practice. I don't really do that. I i find that For me it tends to come towards the end of the day as compared to An exercise and That.

"That are in that have done nonprofit work and and i think the same kind of thing where you find a mission you find a purpose you find a cause that you really believe in and you do something that you're you're providing some sort of impact and you're being helpful and then combined with when we finally got it on market and got it on the shelf at whole foods. I'll never forget. I got an email from a customer. is probably the second day that we were on the shelf at whole foods in. They're like oh. Thank you so much for producing this product. We we always put the email and phone number on the back of the bottle. Which by the way was not people did in years ago. It was very much what we took from tack. What a lot of tech products did that brought it over to you. Know the the Consumer products in the beverage space. So i get the email from a customer. And they're like thank you so much They provided their phone number. So i reached out to him and i was like just curious. Like what made you kinda. Pull this product off the shelf thinking. Maybe it was the label. Maybe it was like the flavor was at the the fact that it was on sweetened flavored water and they and it was interesting what his gentleman's responsible as he said. So i have this disease called type. Two diabetes and i had never heard a diabetes. But i didn't know the definition of type two diabetes versus type type one diabetes and so he started to educate me how he found he'd been tracking insulin levels and when he consumed diet sweeteners that it was spiking his Interlagos and so. I was like gosh. That's really amazing. Like what what do doctors say and again my curiosity. I'm just like listening to this customer. And he said you know doctors can't confer there's really not studies about it and a lot of the studies are paid for by Many of the food and beverage companies and so you know maybe they don't really want us to know. But i'm just happy that you provided a product that i can drink that i can stay hydrated. The taste great. Because i hate the taste to water. And i'm like me too. That's right but anyway the the point is is that when you when you have that dialogue with your customer and your customer is telling you and still to this day they tell me this. That hint is helping them. Your product is helping out and and that is such a powerful thing. I mean today. People call it mission driven purpose driven companies sixteen years ago. We didn't term it that way yet. Sure and but if somebody if you have an opportunity to go do something that helps people whether that start a company or join a company or torn a nonprofit whatever where you can get that feedback back from somebody who is being helped somebody that you didn't know until you had this interaction. I is such a powerful thing. It it helps especially when the when you have a hard day challenges name. You have a failure. You remember those consumers that are bombed that you know the bummed if you go away right and you know i. I just think that that's such an important piece for everybody to know and remember love it. And there's just there's so much obviously. The story of how of how hint started in the backstory share. Some of it. There's definitely more in the in the book as well. But i wanted to know a little bit about the book and if the book falls that same vein of having this intuitive sense of okay. This is next. Like i want to help. More people in this could be medium to do that. Like word of the book come from so it was five years of journaling and You know it's interesting you and i were talking about about book launches and podcast this. I mean i felt like i started writing. Just i didn't have like a name of chapter and then started writing against it. And i'm sure there's lots of different or maybe a few different ways to write a book but for me i just kept journaling and so this journal was like six hundred pages at the end of five years and so i thought what am i going to do with this journal. And there's so many great stories in here. I would use actually from my talks that i was doing or oftentimes if i was even meeting with a grocery buyer and i tell the story of hint and they'd ask certain questions. I would use this questions as my prompts. And so oftentimes i would. Have you know my notebook with me. And i'd write down like a question and then i would use it as a prompt Sometimes i would answer their question. While i was there but other times i would think about. If somebody's asking me about you. Know how did you raise money. And then i would go. And i would start journaling on that so i wasn't even coming up with my props right. There wasn't any I was using what people were asking me to come up with prompts to to You know go from and to write from. And so that was really the beginnings of of writing the book and then finally after five years and six hundred pages. I thought maybe. I should like publish. The journal on them people could read a lot of these stories and it could help them because a lot of these talks and i was doing i was hearing back from consumers. I heard you talk yesterday. That talk you know what you said about x. was really you know so helpful to me. And i thought if i can get this out there that would be amazing and i spoke to a friend of mine. News publisher couple of books. Not even thinking. I was going to launch a write. A book i mean. That's such a big daunting thing. Right and i said how do i. How do i find this book together and get it out. People she said you mean. Write a book. And i said. Oh no i. I have a full-time job running company. I mean how. Could i have time for doing that. And she said you've already done it. I mean you have to get down to a couple hundred pages you know and and oh that'll be real easy actually hard about writing a book. I actually getting down to digestible. Book format so.

"And then Started actually had really given up. And then i looked down at my drink. My diet coke. That i was drinking atanov and i thought what are all these ingredients and i mean i think i paid more attention to what i was putting in my car and i did my own body right not really thinking. I was doing anything wrong because it was labeled diet. And for me. Diamond equated to health and so that's when i did a little swap and put the diet soda to diet coke in particular to the side and i started drinking water and i. I started to see dramatic changes. My energy came back. I started losing weight and my skin cleared up. And i thought there's only one problem. Water is just so darn boring or sewed onboard Boring so this cannot be dislike temporary measure. I need to get on the program. And i just couldn't do it so i had a. I think a lie and a pomegranate on my counter. And i thought i wonder if i slice it and just throw it in the water. What would happen and this was like seventeen years ago and hard did it and it made water tastes better but then the funny thing is kids. Were coming into our house and they were asking me for like strawberry water and installing me saying what kind of like strawberry water you giving my kids and i'm like it. Strawberries and water. I mean you know it was just. I thought this is just so interesting. How something so simple and so obvious was not available on the market. Everything had either sugar or diet sweeter senate. And i just couldn't believe it. In fact i when i went out looking for my product that i had made in my kitchen like to consume to buy it to consume it not to actually figure out you know. Should i go to a product. I wasn't there yet. I just assumed that san francisco kinda sucked and they didn't have like good stores. That would have this product and even whole foods had just opened. And i thought this is the store that would have a product like this and they didn't have it and i thought i there. There were carbonated versions of the drink. That i wanted to eventually create but most of bomb had way too much sodium in them and so that changed over over time. But i thought if i want a drink you know eight plus glasses of water a day to actually drink carbonation it. It's really hard to drink that much water and it's a little bit different than drinking like you know a diet coke over the course of time. So it's just when you're drinking water with bubbles in it. I don't know it just slake there's nothing else in it and so it's doesn't it. You feel really bloated and like you're going to blow up and so i thought it's gotta be stillwater. If i want to stay on the path of drinking eight glasses of water so long winded story of you know really chairing that. I was just kind of floating in some ways of trying to figure out kind of some problems that i wanted to solve And then one day just sort of thought. Well no one's doing this. I actually think i could not only help. Change my own health. Which i had figured out but i thought i could probably help a lot of other people too and i think that that specific point for me of being able to help a lot of people was incredibly powerful so and i i think that is it. It really instilled the stay. I mean that really. I didn't sit there and think. Oh i'm gonna go take on the beverage companies. i mean for me. I thought i'm gonna provide a product that actually helps people enjoy water and that and that was it was that so it sounds like that was kind of the eureka moment for you to from. Oh you've you figure something out personally for yourself to hey. There might be something here to help others but were like where did that. Where did that come from. Was that just something in your life or in in shifting out of tech or were you were the benefits you saw for yourself. Because i think you lost a ton of weight in like something ridiculous like two weeks just chef won't over twenty pounds in two and a half weeks but it wasn't just the weight i mean it really was like you know the skin stuff i mean i went to different dermatologists thinking and tried everything over the counter trying to figure it out and i never had this acne that i had developed over time and you know the more i know about how the body works. Is you know you're processing everything that you're putting into your system everything that you're putting on your skin and you're coming in contact with you know your your body eventually is reacting to it. I think for for me it was on overload. And so you know your skin is your largest organ and so here. I was putting these diet sweeteners. And my body just couldn't do it anymore. I mean i was producing insulin Which is actually very common for diet. Sweeteners today. Yet a lot of people don't realize that. And i think that my organs were shutting down. I mean i am not dot is ultimately you know that is a an explanation for people who are who are dealing with adult acne. I mean what is going on inside that you can't see i is such a key thing and so as i started to to fix myself. That's when i thought there's a lot of confusion out there and obviously you know people are joining diet programs. And they're buying diet drinks and low fat. There's a lot of healthy perception out there versus healthy reality and i think look right and i think for me. It just seemed it might. Curiosity just sat there every single day and wouldn't go away. I kept thinking about how many people i could help just by. You know getting a product on the shelf. And and i think that look. I have many friends.

Okay so how you met because this is super important if you if you're willing to go there like how what's what's been helping. What's in helping making a concerted effort to reach out to friends. I'm if i need to vent. Or if i just need to be around. Other people course. Corentin was a huge part of this yup but also delegating more. The work than i normally would allowing myself to do that so that i could have my weekends back. Yeah totally usually. I work six days a week. Sunday is my prep day for monday. But for for like four or five months straight. It was seven days a week nonstop work into the night. I wasn't getting any break in washing the dishes. And i my hands were shaking. Like that's new. That has never before so to anyone. Listening take breaks drink water. You know carriers off. Yeah usually when something comes up physically right. It's it's it's a good sign that things internally have gone far beyond our max right. I shouldn't have let it get to that point But i'm glad i caught it before. I went absolutely ballistic. Yeah no but i wouldn't even say you should have let it get to that point. I mean your human. Like the rest of us i feel like many of us myself included can resonate with with something like that. We might experience it in different ways but like let's be honest. Society is kind of set up the pushes to that place so for not actively doing something in in doing something to see against have the awareness to see that. That's coming up and putting stuff into our routine than at minutes. Inevitable's just going to happen for not wired to handle this much pressure. Yeah and i am someone who like.

At how how just a little effort into getting to know your crew can go such a long way blink there so i've worked on so many shows where the show runner for whatever reason stays in their office. All the time doesn't really talk to anyone. keeps the hierarchy very very much higher. Yeah exactly and that can work in. That can be fine. But i like getting to know everyone on my crew. And that's why quarantined has been so hard. 'cause we knew people that i've never met face to face in that stinks. Yeah so just switching gears a little bit. I'd love to know a little bit about your just like what a regular day looks like in like how it either helps or doesn't help like the way you think. In the way you produce in your work but just love to know like how to the more power the morning setup other than this morning with podcast but then like you know how things typically on folder every day is completely different because the pipeline is such that when i'm doing one thing i have to be preparing something for something else and then the next day i could be getting back stuff from artists on that thing that i ever it's very confusing So fridays typically today. I have a design review that i put off from yesterday. I'm going to be receiving an outline. That i have to read do notes on. I have of recording session with one of our voice actors. And i have to do passes onto storyboards and record a pitch that is due on monday. That is a light day. Okay you get to have lunch today. Okay yeah then i can already see everyday. Must be so different than it's completely different. I can't i can't really predict it. Yeah what time. Do you like that. I do i do i like. I like being surprised. It does keep me from getting bored. Sometimes it gets very overwhelming. And i need to take a mental health day sure and luckily occurs very understanding of that but usually i have fun running around. It's challenging and when you win you get in that that personal work slash kind of mental house cleaning. I get through the flow. Put it mental health cleaning verses brain bargain usually after work i'll stop work around seven or seven thirty attends doodle till i get tired. It's also like my brain very active. I have a hard time sleeping. I have insomnia so iron outdraw. It'll tucker me out. I mean that's good for like again like via the other show that i host is very much mental fitness. And i've heard that up so many times where i do it myself as well like when i feel really. I guess wound up with just like things narrative circulating my mind or A lot of decisions to be made or whatever like just life which is called that just like taking time to pause and try to be still and do something creative I wish i could draw like you. Thankfully we have we we do on the barren fix that. We have one of the notebooks as has like really lightly sketched illustrations from. Yeah from an illustrator Kyle webster's his name. So i take that out in just trace it essentially and you can color and stuff like that. It's been that's been a big one for me and even even writing in the morning to like the reverse like the fire up kind of the crater slow in my own mind so for anyone listening. You're not leading a show of and you could use these practices for really anything right. Yeah absolutely one thing. I do also. There are some days where i get tired of drawing.

I actually had a very difficult time communicating with other kids or even communicating with my parents. And the only thing that helped me get anything across was drawn. Okay role.

It was always centered around storytelling. Even when you go back to my earliest sketchbooks from nineteen ninety seven. It's always like centered around two characters having to go through like a pit of alligators get to the other side or on like battling ghosts and i just watched a lot of cartoon so that was always appointed influence.

"Just like don't have them on my phone. Because i've realized that i'm gonna lose the battle ten nine times at a ten and it's not worth one time at a time that i get it and i'm really hopeful that over the next decade we are going to build a healthier relationship with our phones. Because i think we've gone way too far to the extreme in the last few years and yeah yeah what. I think that that mentality is something that will serve us for all technology that is to comrades so like a again. It's you know you're right. There's the the most talented engineers working to keep us addicted to these things but at the same time to there's the onus is on us to to to develop that healthy relationships right like so we can if we can take that responsibility than i mean. We'll we'll win as other things. Continue to evolve in whatnot rights sub. Yeah for sure and like listen. They're also built like you said they're they're built into phones out to like screen. Time is great. Like i generally just like turn do. Do not disturb from like ten pm until seven thirty or eight. Am in the morning. So that when. I tried to open my phone. I am immediately reminded to just put it back down and i think again i think as we as customers demand a healthier relationship tools are going to get built to serve us because at the end of the day like we need to. Yeah i think everything. Everything's really demand driven in that way. Yeah oh man well this. This was super fun. I mean i'm really really digging the whole idea of like the long-form Ide- shen practice. I'm gonna. I'm gonna bring that to our team as well and see what we can do that. I think it's a mirror. That's an amazing thing. And and it takes. It takes a lot of time to do one well. And so i think that's the brilliant piece of it is like you wanna have lots of good ideas like i have will. I have lots of ideas all the time. Rarely do i have a good one. When i have a little a little barrier in front of me that says okay like if ideas really good you need to go through the time and energy to get it on paper and iron ironed out and find the data to back it up. You're just creating a funnel that ensures that only the good ideas really come out of it and so it's a great. It's a great mechanism to screen out all the bad ideas that we have and yet try to try to spend our time and energy doubling down an investing in the good ones will analyze. There's a lot of You know independent creatives freelancers and whatnot. That listen to this show like the thing. I like about the practice. Is we've been talking from a standpoint of the team in presenting new ideas like that. But i mean this up really works in in all situations right like again. Like if you're creating a list of all these ideas in your. I don't know a freelance photographer. And you're thinking of this new project or something. It's probably worth that time. Sure and map it out and take two three pages as the standard exactly. Yeah all every time now. When i'm brainstorming ideas with france. I always say like this is how we're going to do it if we think it's good enough. Let's let's throw down on paper. So yeah yeah that's cool around what's one thing you you know you've been thinking about lately or that's been on your mind or something that you think we should be thinking about You know it doesn't have to be at athene related to what we talked about but just like leave us with a thought or a an idea that floating around in your mind. Get the juices flowing. Yeah so the quote that i heard. Recently i think it's confucius anyways says that. Yes it is computers. So it's it's her we have two lives and the second begins when we realize we only have one nice and so i just love that quote because i think i'm at least moving onto the next stage of my life and thinking about kids and and all of those things and i just wanna to make sure that you always have in the back of your mind that like hey like you got one life like low live at the way you want to and yeah and so. I think it's a hard thing to do because of for me. It's it's the timeline piece of it is like when you compromise a little bit of the short term to sort of achieve longer term goals vs when you're always just like achieving eric. Doing exactly what you wanna do when you wanna do it and just finding that balance is a really tough one. But i just love that quote and it resonates. That's beautiful beautiful way to add to wrap this up that that is wrapped. So thank you so much for joining us. Ben were kin listeners. Connect with you yeah. That's a good question.

"Like mastery is being able to take a really complex subject and simplify it into terms that everyone that resonate with everyone and i think the narrative long-form doc is really good at that is like the the bungle jungle like long words and like. You just can't hide behind that when you really are laying out a again like a thousand words about about why we should be focused on something new. Yeah that's cool so just jumping to you a little bit more individually. You went through this process. Obviously as you just mentioned in pitch one of the ideas that you're working your team's working on like for you personally like what's how do you tackle a new project or thinking of this stuff like what. What are some of the things that you're doing to keep your mind Or bring your your mind clear place so that you can release these ideas essentially and see how you want it to to map out. Yeah there's there's so many so many different ways to answer that question from a couple of different angles but let's try to piece at a or unpack a little bit. So i like you were talking about. Creativity comes from space. You need space and clarity. It's the reason people like always have great thoughts in the shower. Because you're sort of just like not you can't think about anything. You can't distract yourself. It's just like a water hitting your head and and so most of my good ideas come from non work time trying to force the creative thoughts and the good ideas. That's a really really hard thing to do. And so that just means that you naturally need to give yourself space working fourteen hours a day. It's really hard to come up with novel out of the box ideas and so finding a way to have that balance and give yourself space. I think everyone has different ways of doing that. I now love going for long walks. I actually notoriously. You said not like walking which is crazy but now it's just one of my favorite things to do an close to high park here in toronto. And there's no better place to get some yes. Let's stick with the walk. Because i've been doing them to as i've been experimenting with different things historically i would i'd like cramming a podcast or something or than like You know what. I won't do podcasts. I'll just do music then. Now it's like nothing in. I'm just trying to literally be present with the footsteps like here. In smell like the Worse as well and and what not but Yes i'm fascinated. See like how other people are doing this as well. Yeah i went through the exact same transition issue is like it used to be okay. Podcasts or audiobooks and it's like oh you know what like let's do music music seems a little bit more balanced but even that can sort of just take your mind away. It depends what kind of music i to do nothing. I prefer nothing. And i do. Love going for walks with my wife to she's also like we're on the similar wavelength where we know how to poke and prod each other and all the right ways to get those creative juices flowing but when i go to walk by myself it is always just with nothing in my ear I also i also love doing like walking meetings. Which right now in. Toronto is a little bit tricky but As often as possible. When i can step away from my desk and not do a zoom meeting but actually like plug in the airpods or whatever and go for a walk and take a meeting. I find my mind just worked so much. Better when yeah. I don't know what it is that there has to be some cool research around that. Because like i am one hundred percent sure that my mind works any different more creative way when i just like. Have the blood flowing. Yeah yeah yeah. I think so. I mean i i would say it's you know what's like you like any type of exercise like you're just you're you're firing up your biology at the same time right in and i'd imagine Just a change in environment and scenery and stuff like that is is also helpful pressure and frankly we spent so much time sitting or in one place especially now with everything being remote as well like even the smallest things right where you'd like. I don't go to I think you guys were co working space right in toronto. Like you know you go to the common area to grab a coffee or something like you actually move around where the app not that much going on when you're at home like it's it's tough and and honestly i think that creativity is probably dropped off a little bit too. I don't think it's a great thing for for anyone Yeah it will be. Yeah i don't know. I can't wait to get back to an office but like now i see it differently in like three days. A week probably makes sense for me. I don't know yeah. And so just back to the question of like other ways like i love paper and pen like to me like writing on idea like i. I'm not gonna write a full long form narrative on on and like like no way. My hand hurts after like just writing one card. I know you're a fan of the products of barren fig. You don't have to go that. But i do start. I do like to start with paper and pen a bunch of like random circles and maybe some cowboy math numbers in that sort of stuff. The other guys. You need to have a safe space and listen. I one of those people that really hate meetings. And i cut as many meetings as possible. But when you're in the sort of creative part of the process It's important to have like agendaless meetings with people who come from different perspectives and engineering perspective of product perspective data perspective and create a safe space where everyone can just throw ideas out there. There's no hierarchy of ideas based on like what people's backgrounds or seniority is and so those sort of like again. It's hard to create that it's hard to be like. Hey every month we're all gonna get together and think about good ideas. I think that's a hard way to innovate. But there is something there. And i don't actually have the recipe for it. The last thing. And i think this is the most important one for me and this is what i love. And we're all my energy from is is the really fun dance of customer discovery and selling.

Because i mean we're all we're all going through this together in. This is part. The reason i really wanted to chat with you is to stimulate some some different thaad whether it's people leading teams whether you're working yourself It doesn't matter just really putting putting putting your mind your heart. Your body putting that that first in everything else follows. If is those parts of your body are in the limelight. Right after not in alignment. It's okay to talk about gift. Course yes go. So you and i are like yeah. Of course it is. Because we've we've been on this planet for a while but when you tell the twenty-three-year-old like it's okay i'm here i have your bath in the workplace very different. Yes and that's that's the beauty. I think of for me being chief officer is an and what i did my entire life. I got this title. There are so many of knees out their title or not title. Doesn't matter just someone that will go just that extra inch. We john on slack reach out here just a. Hey you doing haven't caught up an oil. Hey how's it going. Hey notice you did this just that little bit of recognition to even people like us while you're human right you needed a swell. Her sure believes in a back to what this this podcast is about. Believe when you can help someone take care of themselves. I can't change anyone's behavior. And i certainly can't fix that person's depression when when i can be part of their journey and ride as a passenger which is empathy to me. I do believe when when someone feels seen or held they are able to in some way shape or form move through that burden in into something that could be phenomenally created. Use that in a different way knowing that. There's a safety net under them in the workplace. Yeah well. I think what happens is just that it. It's really hard to create or to see the next steps forward whether that's on strategy or whether you're designer trying to design something out it's like it's hard to to really operate from a place of clarity if you're fogged with all these thoughts emotions. That are very much justified right now. What's going on but it's it's like pushing a boulder up a mountain you can get you can get it done. But it's a hell of a journey to to do that. Right in can take away some of that pressure than i mean. Everyone wins everyone every everyone. And that's the thing about you know it's not. There's not just one smart person in the room or on the zooms feet. Everyone is the some we all win you win. I win when i win win. And it's that is gosh. I really know they teach that in kindergarten. I'm sure they do. But i do. Need need to stay. Need to be teaching that in like seventh through twelfth that in india right for sure. Yeah there i mean. There's so much we can. We can learn from obviously kids. And i know your daughter. is young and i'm sure you're picking up on a lot of or being reminded of of things like that right with their curiosity and they're just no no limit kind of thinking and they're just not jaded from society and whatnot to the point. Where the team here actually at barren fig. We did it today. And i was. It was my job to lead this every thursday since being remote we just get together for thirty minutes when we. It's like a little powell and we usually play some sort of virtual game and Today's topic or i brought it with the team in this was inspired by my five year. Old unlike let's do show and tell like we used to do that all the time. We're four or five. My five year olds doing it. And just i don't pick something from the house that you're you know that has some sort of story you're sentimental value and it was a blast. You got the learn so much. Both the team members like that and it just made me think that we we forget to play the piano. We forget to play and that we also need rituals. Yes you know and in the office in the office the rituals a high five or a handshake and now we have to find rituals. Which is every thursday. You get together for a thirty minute meeting or every monday. There's a stand up meeting or you know in my team. we do. Scavenger hunts cruel. People still do wind. Wednesday's whatever it is that those rituals are really important in tribes and in communities. And that's what we are so true. Well speaking of that Before we wrap. I did want to ask you a little bit about your days. Just like how your your mornings are set up in your evenings and whatnot. And i know in between that. Probably a bit variable and There are many meetings and and like you said fifty minute sessions and other zoom calls and whatnot. But i'm curious. Just how do you how do you start your day to keep your either either prime your mind or keep your mind clear and end your day to you. Know kind of rinse and repeat so that you you're you're able to be there for so many people. Yeah the in in by the way in what you're asking about like what are my morning rituals by frankly.

In terms of you know we have creators on staff column creators. they all have to have. They'll come to us with jeep video editing capabilities and by the way the raw for the most part jenn z's thought on how we go about speaking to clients about this new way of thinking is quite frankly very low for them and sometimes we have to do the normal thirty or the normal whatever it is and that's okay but we go into that with is why no sure conversations with eyes wide open so those are just you know. Those are just a couple examples of what i believe. We're doing in a very creative. In a very creative way and disruptive way that works for us in which which will keep us i think inventing inventing inventing because we've got that momentum behind you know it's like i never run a marathon however i would imagine if you run a marathon once and you do it. You've got the momentum behind your back to do it again and to do it again and it again you do it sure price so i imagine it's kind of like that feeling. Yeah so then. I i imagine to just Were all the the empathy plays in and just focus on everyone's well health in mindset and the fact that you're coaching and whatnot allows the team to handle the pressure of that speed. Yeah right right so the speed is fast. Yeah we are virtual. We are dealing with life on life's terms which means we are dealing with human beings that have been now isolated from one another and isolated in some way shape or form from their world. Family everything that you. And i have gone through as well and and they're dealing with their own emotional health and wellness. So you have to take in. You have to take into consideration who this person is even before they walk from on the street in before the onto the screen at nine call or they get onto the street for that brainstorming meeting. And that's something. I think we did very well. Which is the consideration that people come to work. Get onscreen walk in the office. Whatever it is already having had three hours two hours life which impacts who they are which is true impact with a do in the in the speed or the non. Speeding were signal about their day. Whatever they're whatever they're doing and so what we've done with our leadership teams first and foremost we brought in life.

They have they all go through. One on one high-performance coaching with occur. We the handout. And it's been pretty phenomenal in.

While betsy i had no choice i was kind of born into it. My family got their start in the allegation industry in the chicago. Land area back in nineteen twenty eight with a company by the name of mueller missed irrigation. Great grandfather and grandmother lived in the foothills of ohio. Close to west. Virginia Could make it on the farm so Came to chicago to work for family members in. I wanna say at that point. In time it was probably the forties Just pre world war two and mueller. Mr gatien was Where might it was. Actually i call on them to this day in in their garage that i did a training with their guys two weeks ago. It was subdivided into four parts. And that's where my family actually lived by. My grandfather was an unpaid employees from age. Thirteen to sixteen and Yeah he worked there till nineteen sixty one. Michael bob came to him. In sixty one said dave where starter o'hara gatien company in my grandfather was a licensed plumber Working year round raising four kids. Happy as can be was their number one service guy had all the north shore mansions you know. They love david day. He was the guy and he says bob. You don't even own a piece of equipment. He said that's no problem. I sold the john deere corporate headquarters. We have worked for the next nine months. So i don't know if you've ever seen the footprint of property they installed it in one hundred percent spray heads while now insult like the stories. I mean even run across the old systems.

"It's very important part of what we do every day here amazing so what is next for figs. Can i even say that. It seems like you are so present and you're helping so much but you have a vision for the future for figs. That's different from today. I think the heart of it our healthcare community what even this pandemic has done as had just shown a light right. Everyone's now clapping at seven pm. The world is focused on these. Be ball and actually that's died down a bit and our job is to ensure that celebrating and empowering healthcare community. That doesn't go away right. We are that company that will stand by our healthcare professionals as they go out to do their work and that will never change. I mean that is who we are so the future is about developing creating products. They need so they can do their job. You know it is about function. It's about design. It's about comforts so that you feel the best year your bestself when you go to work every day and then Connection how do we help. The community connects even with each other. You know coming out of the pandemic in a lot of people are now talking about it. The mental health side of it in for everybody right being in isolation being or team it's affected all of us but it's also affected our healthcare community that you know the amount of tragedy the seen right and who can talk to. Who are they connecting with to get through this on. They don't wanna talk to their families because they don't want to put that on that and so how do we now as a company Help in that way as well. We're working on a number of initiatives on that front and so there's so much there's so much there so much work through shaw or are people in all the different ways that we can in. So that's where we're focused. And then you know i would say e commerce is evolving and changing. And it's not just about oh shopping right. It's about how you have one to one connections with people at scale so personalization not something not. It's really about tailoring experience for every individual because everybody's different. I'm so that's a really exciting pieces. Well that we're focused. So i guess my last question is for for women out there and men or thinking about starting their own venture their own companies. What do you wish you had known early on. man so many things. I wouldn't be able to do this crazy thing imbue. If you don't know the wall is there you can walk through it. I think that's just like our story right like if you don't know how the wall is in front of you. You could walk through it so nice. There's so many things that happen and drive and carrying out people that is driven this company. It's almost like you know it's like a culture strategy for breakfast. A big cultural fakes. How job in the world. What we do everyday is really what drives us but your question was what do i wish i knew. I don't know that's the thing right. If i knew all the things we on it this way and then we wouldn't be where we are and we wouldn't be able to show in the way we show up because if you know too much actually you think about that. Ensure studies about this like if you know too many things Actually you talk yourself out of doing a lot of things right your own good. Because i probably probably wouldn't have started the company because you know how many people said oh. The industry doesn't work that way. You're never they're not gonna do that in that way. And when you're really redefining. Something from scratch in changing behaviors in restructuring products in bringing things to the world that never been created over most expert. Look at that and say oh. That's not gonna work and that's just that's a way to live so true so true.

Oppo find x3 pro review
"Embargo for the for the find x three pro lifted this morning this is okposo latest and greatest opo and oneplus share parent company. Bb case so there will be some overlap in what we talk about We don't know a lot about the oneplus series but what we know about the finance three pro. I think will dovetail nicely into the rumors for the oneplus nine. So let's start with you. Miriam you have this phone. It's oboe is not a brand name and north america yet. But i think it's becoming a bit more ubiquitous in europe where alex is you've reviewed one pl- or oboe phones for years now and you're you're among the first people to bring kind of these. Chinese brand opal vivo. Walkway into the purview of us audiences. So when you take a look at the x three pro. What's your first impression. Is this a phone that was made for a worldwide audience or is this more a phone that was made for a chinese audience. That is them being sort of adapted for the west. I think we're at the point now. Where i wanna odd xiaomi to your last i think yeah okay. I think we're the point. Where really these global launches of these phones the me levin from shami recently of course the oppo phoenix three pro and financial three series our global phones through and through. And i think that that's very exciting to me. Now we get the short end of the stick in north america. You're in canada. I'm in the us. Because we still don't get full five g support for our weird bands. And that means that i hesitate to recommend this phone to folks live on the north american continent of this time. I haven't tested the oppo yet on five g. here i'm hoping that as qualcomm becomes more omnipresent not that it isn't already but i mean in terms of its Band support for five g. sub. Six that we get eventually to a point where even buying global phone will just work on some bands in us. Kind of like four g. Lt. foams do and in canada. So i think these phones feel like truly global phones to me. I think that the biggest challenge the biggest obstacle that existed in the pass with these two years ago three years ago. If you imported one was the software. Felt very chinese in the sense that it was. It's like it's hard to explain. But there's a certain flavor to chinese phones if you've ever used one that doesn't have google services on it and that's changed radically. I think caller west which is what apple runs which is an on top of android is even closer now to oxygen. Which is what one plus has which makes sense. Bbq groups same company but in the past. That wasn't always the case. And i think xiaomi's done a very good job as well as an improving it appears to be more you know more universal to the global markets to customers in different countries. So i really have no qualms with this phone i think. It's it's a solid all-round flagship. It brings to the table some things we've never seen before and it on top of that. You know short of the five g support from north. America is a truly global phone so alex. You're the only person among the four of us that uses this phone. Where in the markets intended give us your overview of how fits into the uk european market. And what your first impressions are so whether fit into the market. Whether hoping to the mock i think is in the gap. The is currently in the process of being vacated by wa so there is a a room for another major player in europe and the uk. And i think that's that's where they plan to slow us into already seeing that taking advantage of always current challenges in china whether the now the the number one manufacturer but yeah i think in terms of just the quality the phone. It's it builds on what we saw in the next two pro in little ways last year But the my money this is a little bit of a one. Step forward one step back. Sort of a situation They're all the things. I really enjoyed about the findings to pro- And it it just seemed to have every angle sort of covered in terms of photography and a big part of that is super zoom telephoto in it. Yeah oddly something that a lot of brands of moving away from this year with the exception of while way sometime maybe xiaomi That's something i really miss. Unfor- photography scented phone that seems like a big emission. Especially when you have this weird microscope thing which is fun to play around with but is not going to have anywhere near the practical value In terms like dealer photography assume would get you So that's one sort of disappointments. That i have with it Made worse by the fact that. I'm not a massive found. The microscope The other side air you. i know this is. This is a one. A one point of conflicts on this phone denialism massive out of the microscope. But just before we get to that. The other thing is Find extra prolapsed yet no wireless charging is kind of becoming a table. Stakes feature ever since apple introduced is Now we finally have that but the battery life is just null. Great unstaffed That's the problem right When you getting in the region of twelve to thirteen hours In its its fooling over after about three and a half hours screen on you know especially for me coming from pixel five and show. I've been spoiled a little bit by that phone but Yeah it's haunted. Described the boundary line for this thing is anything but just a big disappointment for me. I would agree with that in the week or so that i've used it especially coming from the galaxy s twenty one pixel five. This is a big battery. that just doesn't perform like a big battery but were still a month out from launch and miriam. I know you haven't spent a ton of time with it but what's your impression of. I wanna come back to the camera. Because i think the the cameras a sort of a question mark for me. Every time i've spoken to one. Plus they give me different answers for why they made the decisions they did around the load out but the phone. Form factor right. They made a big deal about this single piece of glass on the back and how they machine did and you know burned it in killing at seven hundred degrees and puts a magic spell on it to keep its shape and all that. What's your impression of the form of this device. It's really interesting. And i think it's something that a lot of people it's pretty arresting to somebody who's looking at it from the back for the first time. Yeah i love the design. I think it's really unique. A middle worried that you know. It's like form over function in some way. Because i mean at this price point. What's the price anyway. Do we know eleven hundred pounds or twelve hundred years this price. That's fine but i like so gonna be a thousand like it's about the same as the next to last year pros last year. But he's a little bit cheaper but yeah that over thousand dollar price point. I'm okay with the crazy. You know wizards type approach to making the thing with thousands of hours of manufacturing time. Whatever it might be. I think it looks really cool. I've got the kind of grayish color. One agree dark rate lack. I don't know what color that is. But it's looking at a mirror. The whole thing is one piece. It's very cool. My my thing is that i'm really happy. They added wireless charging. That was the thing that i wanted to make a final to pro my daily driver austere and it up with of course oneplus eight pro which is count like again you know the oneplus nine pro is going to be a dead ringer of this phone. So no surprise there like in many ways so the reason i couldn't do it because what trudging was missing. Now that's been remedied by battery life. I haven't tested yet. So i don't know but it might be a result of trying to run everything at one twenty hertz and quad hd. I feel that. If i have to compromise somewhere it's resolution usually my eight pro oneplus a prior run at ten eighty p right and probably run the oneplus nine pro and switched to it at ten pm. Pretty convinced. i'm going to switch to it so wait you're of all the phones that you've used including the galaxy s twenty one. You're still using the eight pro. Is your daily driver. Oh yeah no. Don't i don't want to switch to off and i have so many ops to reinstall and set up a one once a year thing and i have to pick wisely right last year. I decided that i was going to wait. For the pixel five and so i hung hoed with the pixel forty or whatever four acceler my pocket for a while and then i realized that the pixel five was giving giving me what i want and the four or five g was actually the better form but didn't have wireless charging in my opinion so then i went said. I need to make a decision. So i went eight pro and the reason for that is i want i want wanna pixel essentially but i wanna flagship right. So what's the closest you can get to that. You can't get a flagship from google anymore. Anyway i digress but back to the quickey unfortunately have just to go as soon but i feel that for me. What surprised me. The most is the telephone okay. I couldn't get numbers on this. Is it three x two x two x optical and switch to x optical with five x figs. Zoom whatever hybrid. That's hybrid probably looks okay at five x hybrid but probably know better than one hundred eight megapixel. That's trying to do five x kinda like the eleven right. Yeah these over the past It's just fine. I is is fine of five but go beyond five. It's a bit yeah. We had a paris copa. Like five x right. That was different from the oneplus. Eight pro which only had like three x telephoto. So i think the teleph- the the lack of the telephoto disappearing from almost everyone's phones except for you know an iphone doesn't really count because there's only two axe to me. Anything that's to excellence doesn't count. It has to be three more. And ideally it needs to have two of them like the s twenty one ultra or the. We p forty pro plus. Which was my darling camera phone last year. Despite the lack of gm's so you see. That's the reason. Part of the reason daniel that i went with the pro because i knew that if i needed a better camera just pull out a weiwei. P forty plus and carry that with me right and so so then. I guess the party question that i would ask is what would it take for the financial three pro to be your daily driver over the nine. The oneplus nine pro. Because they are so similar to things. And i want that i feel. Actually this might take away from this. Phone is that oppo is holding back for an ultra version. Yes that was my conspiracy theories. Well i feel like we're like because everybody's doing more than a pro. Now i feel that apple is exploring that ultra premium end. And he's gonna come out with a special edition of this phone. That will have a proper periscope telephoto. But what would make me switch would be more see right now. Could live with a two x telephoto. If it's any good. I don't know off to try it but i think for me. It's five g support simply. Because i'm on t. mobile in the us and it's actually beneficial in terms of network coverage for me it's not really beneficial terms of speed by re does give me slightly better performance in some fringe situations and that would be my big. My big request bought the other thing. That i'm interested intrigued. Bob because i haven't really had chance to tessies. Cameras yet. Is their choice of using the two identical fifty megapixel. I am seven six six sensors on the ultrawide and the main to get perfect color. Matching 'cause how's that worked out for you guys so interesting thing. That is the you in theory. That is what happens. But then you have the ai thing that's turned on. Which can you run. I'm not sure by default but if you use it You know it's very useful things in some situations but if you use it then you can get radically different looking switching between the two lenses if you don't have the tent on yet is obviously much closer as a parting thought. I have a feeling that while last year's apple finds pro would have been my choice for that time period of the year that first half of the year until the no twenty ultra came out. Which was my darling phone of the fall. But i switched to it because i was lazy. And of course he has twenty ultra. now is a pretty solid choice for photography. I think until until then until the eight pro last year the findings to pro choice other than wireless charging and five jeep but this year. I'm much more convinced that all want the oneplus nine pro. That's your segue as i'm leaving because for me. The one plus nine pro. F- i don't know all of the details yet but that hassle partnership has me intrigued and more importantly i know it's going to support all the bands properly in the us. And it's going to have wireless charging which i need and it's going to be a slightly smaller phone. I think this year which. I'm very happy about because the eight cross a freaking monster of a beast. It's too big for me over there. So i think the x three profiles held back to me somehow. Apple is i can know what apple can do and be group and this is very good by this. This aversion to telephoto in chinese phones right now xiaomi's doing it too is driving me nuts. I don't get it i want all of it. I don't care about microscope. it's cool. I don't care about a macro because an ultra wide can do macro like it is on this phone. It is on one plus pro phones
