"Maybe with the event's title, we should have known it would-be. Short. Tuesday's time flies event flew past at just over one hour, four pieces of hardware, basically, as well as new services and the services bundle we're focusing on hardware today. Surprising, absolutely, no one apple on Tuesday announced apple. Watch series sex running through the hardware. The S six system and package packs a new dual core processor based on the eighth thirteen bionic an iphone eleven it runs twenty percent faster than series five apps launch twenty percent faster. It's the first. Apple. Watch to include the you one ship, an ultra wideband antennas. The series six always on retina display is up to two point five times brighter outdoors than Apple Watch series five. Both the same all day eighteen hour battery life is before and can hit full charge in one point five hours. To features focused on during the devices introduction where the always on all tinder and the blood oxygen sensor. Not sure why always on is important for an intimidator unless you're worried about rock climbing in your sleep Apple says the always on ultimate provides real time elevation all day long by using a new more power efficient, barometric, ultimate her along with GPS and nearby Wi fi networks. This feature allows for the detection of small. Changes above ground level up and down to the measurement of one foot. And can be shown as a new watch face complication or workout metric. More life and death or the blood oxygen sensor and is associated APP. Apple says, series six measures the oxygen saturation of the users blood. So they can better understand their overall fitness and wellness. Oxygen saturation or S P o two represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body and indicates how well this oxygenated blood is being delivered throughout the body. And how it works is really cool according to Apple's presentation. The sensors are basically checking the color of the blood as it passes by. That color indicates how oxygenated the blood is, which is free again. Amazing. Speaking of colors for the to apple watches I've owned I've chosen brushed aluminum. It's easy to match with just about anything. But if you have a signature color or don't care about matching or. Planned to have plenty of apple watches on hand to put on your wrist Apple Watch now comes in the couple of colorful colors. For. The first time says apple a new blue color. Silver Space Grey and gold aluminum case options along with the product Red Apple. Watch. With exclusive matching, bright red bands stainless steel models are now available and graphite and an updated classic Yellow Gold Color Apple. Watch edition is available in natural and space black titanium. Series six also says Sayonara to ceramic while apple didn't mention it during the event. A piece from macrumors says, that is no more. As is the way the arrival of new apple watches also meant the arrival of new bands. This time though whole new bands, not just new colors. Sport Band makes way for so loop. No clasp. No buckle. Solo Lupus a continuous end stretchable ban design that says comes into materials, soft silicone and braided yarn. Nine sizes for those. Apples supposed to have a size guide on its site. Checking Apple side it looks like Sport Band is just making room not seeding the field. Both sport? Band and Solo loop available to order as of now, there's also said to be a first of its kind leather link that wraps around the rest held in place with flexible molded magnets. Nikewatch gets everything we've talked about already plus a new Nike face and new colors for the Nike Sport Band and Nike Sport Loop. Same goes for Apple Watch air MAS- as far as improvements the hardware it's stainless steel cases come and silver or space black paired with single or Dubna, tour styles and an assortment of vibrant new colors. Now about the only thing predictions got wrong for Apple Watch as E was its name. leakers had thought that that was shorthand that it'd be called something simple like apple. Watch. Apple Watch S E is the budget chronometers name. Well mid range chronometer Apple Watch series three is the true budget model still out there selling for one hundred, ninety, nine bucks. An apples press release apple CEO Jeff Williams was quoted as saying Apple Watch S E combines elements of the series six design with the most essential features of Apple Watch, all at a more affordable price. No Blood Oxygen Sensor and no, always on display. It does sport the always on all temperature though because apple is taking this sleep climbing thing seriously. Looking at the hardware sports the same size displays as the Apple Watch series five. The S., five system and package and dual core processor deliver performance that's up to two times faster than the Apple Watch series three. The S. E. Packs the fives haptic feedback for the digital crown, and that speaks and here's what the latest speaker and microphone in the watch line. Apple says, watch as e features the same accelerometer gyroscope. altimeter as Apple Watch series six and with the latest motion centers and microphone. It offers robust health and safety capabilities including fall detection emergency, SOS, International Emergency, calling, and the noise. APP. Now, if you decide, the six time is the charm that you're finally ready to buy Apple Watch. The one you buy probably won't have a charger in the box Lisa Jackson vp of environment policy and social initiatives at apple appeared during Tuesday's event extolling the environmental virtues of apples timekeeper. Sometimes. Jackson said it's not what we make but what we don't make that counts. That he's from seeing that says that when she said that apple won't be including USB adapters with this week's watches. As putting them free in the box consumes resources and adds to apple's carbon footprint. Interestingly, people who can afford to buy a charger without giving it a thought. Won't have to do so. A separate piece on chargers Napa Watch from apple insiders as apple, watch, addition, and Apple Watch. Will include a five watt power adopter. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman Kinda cried foul over that on twitter. Quoting his tweet looks like the Apple Watch titanium and Armez model still have the power adapter. So the more expensive versions keep it. makes it seem like it's less of an environmental thing and more cost driven? I can get thinking that as an immediate reaction. Here's the thing though you gotta figure apple sells at a minimum hundreds of entry level apple watches for every single edition or. Sold. Probably thousands. So even though it looks like catering to the wealthy and yeah, there may be a bit of that. Even though it looks like catering to the wealthy dropping chargers, millions of people probably don't need. Might make an environmental difference. No I saw way more than one piece saying not including chargers with Apple Watch is just the beginning. While, it has been rumored that the next round of iphones will also arrived without a charger. Apple doesn't seem to a pulled the chargers from the ipads that are also coming out this week. We'll get to those in a bit. Want to get an Apple Watch for your kid but not give them an iphone worried that mom or dad may have a slip and fall or ended up seriously directionally challenged apple has a plan to watch the whole family. Selling points as far as apple's concerned with family setup, you can stay connected with family members without an iphone from making and receiving phone and facetime audio calls to sending and receiving messages and emails, and even connecting with other Apple Watch wearers over walkie talkie. Parents have the ability to approve all contacts. So kids can safely use the communication features of Apple Watch, according to the company. The activity rings experience has been optimized for kids according to Apple. Emergency SOS is being pushes the benefit though. Apple Watch already does that. And finally school time and downtime or front and Center for children while optimizations focused on health for older relatives take precedence at the other end of the spectrum. Now the news that will make family setup less useful for many. It requires cellular models, of Apple, watch series four or later or Apple Watch S E running watch os seven paired with iphone six s or later running IOS fourteen. Apple also said that kids and older family members of the household using family set up, we'll have their own phone number through a separate cellular plan. So, while you don't need to get GRANDPA and the kids their own phones, each cellular watch will come with a tone cellular plan and. Associated Bill. Family setup goes live today and so by the way does watch Os Savon. that. was kind of surprise more on that a bit later. With such an emphasis on the health, it's not overly surprising that the new Apple Watch Slash Watch Os Combo brings a few new health studies. macrumors runs those down starting with an asthma study being run in conjunction with the Insurance Company Anthem and the University of California, Irvine. Second the peace says Apple has tied up with university health network and the University of Toronto to learn more about how Apple Watch metrics including blood oxygen can be used to manage heart failure. Finally macrumors says apple is partnering with investors at the Seattle, flew study at faculty at the University of Washington School of Medicine to explore how changes in blood oxygen and heart rate can be early signals the onset of influenza and Kobe nineteen. The watches by the way are ready to order now. Those opened on. Tuesday, they'll ship on Friday in the US Puerto Rico twenty seven other countries and regions.

The story of Trevor Lawrence's life-changing summer
"So we just discussed how Trevor Lawrence is influence has been growing this off season I taking on issues of public health and racial inequality. But last month. The very thing that gives Trevor Lawrence his enormous Megaphone College football was put in jeopardy as players in conferences. Having. These discussions about canceling the season. What role in those discussions did Trevor Lawrence play. It was a Sunday night early August enduring. Trevor. Together again. There at travers fiancee's apartment and rumours are starting to pick up steam that some of the biggest most powerful conferences in college football the Big Ten PAC twelve that they're seriously considering, postponing their fall season, and this is coming at the end of a week. When of PAC twelve players have released a statement on the Players Tribune using the Hashtag we are united. And they've threatened to out fall CAM even opt out of games unless the conference mixed their demands for fair treatment and safety regulations and less the conference addresses concerns over racial justice, and meanwhile on a nearly parallel track, you have players the cost, the country, trevor, and fluted tweeting the Hashtag. We want to wait to express their desire to keep the seasonal live. So, in the Sunday night when it feels like college ball is teetering, it's actually dairying who decides to reach out to Dylan bowls. One of the players the Pactel's we are United Movement because endearing mine Houston gain. If we all join together the players in the we are united movement and the players in the we want to play movement that would be undeniably powerful for players who don't have concrete power who don't have a real seat at the table at least not yet their collective voice with the really hard to ignore because truly. So many of these fires want the same thing they want to play football this fall, they just want to do it in a safe responsible way. Dylan Daring, trevor they get on a three way facetime called a hash all this out to make sure they're all on the same page and that very quickly evolves into a zoom call with a dozen or so some of the biggest names in college football right Justin fields chew behind nausea. Harris And matter of thirty minutes, they agree to roll out a list of demands from this new fused Mecca Movement. It was amazing. How quickly we all got on the same page put something together I feel like the majority was getting spoken for. And we were like, Hey, we WANNA play. We want it to be safe but we do to take a watt mandated and universal safety procedures for Covid nineteen and they want to form players association. And it pretty much the stroke of midnight. These players, Tweeden Unison. But it's trevor naturally whose tweet is hurt the loudest he's re tweeted some fifteen thousand times including one quote tweet from President Donald Trump, and it's just a few days later actually that someone from the White House reaches out to Amanda Lawrence Trevor Lines mom letting her know that the president would like to get in touch with trevor. So hold on. So he has the president of the United States listening to him. Now let alone all of his peers across college football. What was that conversation with Donald Trump? Like? You know I would have loved to be a fly on whatever wall in whichever room that phone call took place the president has said really that trevor just reiterated his desire to play this season but trevor for his part hasn't divulged too much about that phone call. Conversation it was good I mean we just talked about kind of the whole we talked about that. We WanNA play like how's it going? How's it looking for the season and? president trump was just saying, yeah, I think our country needs college football and. then. Some small talk. Yes. We a little bit about what was going on in my life and vice versa. So that was pretty much the conversation though trevor is twenty years old the president of the United States wanted to speak to him. That is remarkable crazy. No matter which way you cut it. So. Let's recap here Halley Grossman because since March Trevor, Lawrence Age Twenty has faced pressure to help mitigate a global pandemic fight racism save the College football season display a level of political savvy and or gamesmanship that is obviously well beyond his years. So what else can you possibly be asked to do at this point? I mean look putting your stamp of approval which he's done on a list of demands that includes creating players. Association is a big deal. That's a radical way to reimagined that amateurism model that governs. College football right now but I think what this summer has shown is that trevor doesn't plan to quiet down you just a few days ago a whole lot of guys that original zoom call we talked about reconvened because they revealing again from a police shooting of a black man again, and so in the days after Jacob, Blake was shot. Trevor and Darien and Dylan, and a whole host of others talked once again to hammer out ways to help to draw attention to the issue and hopefully bring change. Trevor Lawrence football season is starting tomorrow and if all goes according to plan. He's GonNa win the heisman before becoming the first overall pick in next year's NFL draft teams have been salivating over his talent. There have been rumors that teams might even want to tank for Trevor Lawrence this season. So the question really that is, why is he even putting himself out there like this? Why even play the season? I mean that is the question, right? We have seen plenty a high profile opt-outs this season jomar chase at Lsu. Mike Parsons at Penn State today. Oregon. These are first round top ten NFL draft guys but no one literally nobody has less to lose by not playing the twenty twenty football season than Trevor Lawrence. are in a player having a job borough like. Or I don't know an asteroid hitting the earth, his Cossacks to go number one overall are safe, and at the same time, no one has less to gain by paddling the status quo or shaking up the current system than trevor does this system works just fine for him? He is a young white man. He's a young white quarterback, and so I asked Amanda, his mother that seems washing. Why? Why do all this? I put himself out there and she said something interesting she said look. there. are players out there who do need to even if trevor doesn't and there are people out there for whom the status quo and the current system don't work even if it works for him and he understands that now probably better than he ever has and he just wants to help. That's really it know told me one of his goals for the senior only meeting because he wanted everyone to understand that unless everyone is good no one is good and trevor, his best friend took that to heart. Of the day, there's so much division in our country. Just word of some people that WanNa see people together, WanNa see people love each other and I think that's where a lot of the things I do. It stems from that just wanted to see people happy together not divided. With all this pressure now from all of these different places in our country. Landing Atop. Trevor Lawrence's shoulders. What are you personally expect from him when the season starts? Because of the ways in which Trevor Lawrence has stepped onto center stage this summer it's almost easy to forget what it is. That gives him that stage in the first place, he is extremely good at his job. Term Lawrence is an excellent quarterback. Making predictions in two, thousand, twenty, hundred, probably a fools errand. But tomorrow, there's football comes we'll pay wake forest, and if clemson continues to play if they and the ACC and the big twelve and sec are able to play a full season, don't be surprised to see Trevor Lawrence back on the national championship stage. Don't be surprised to see Trevor Lifting the national championship trophy and along the way don't be surprised to see trevor continuing to speak out and perhaps that's one of the safest predictions you can make in twenty twenty. Life to be reflection of what I say and what I believe I've been thinking about everything that's going on and I think there has been some some moments where I had to say some things because it's just the right thing to do and it's time really is just how I live my life I want it to reflect what I say. I. Would always be the same person I want to be consisted. Eliot Grossman. Thank you for jumping on stage with. US. Thank you so much for having me. Pablo.

It was a search business and You know after selling that I needed to get a document notarized I won't. Will I did a lot of people do which is I went down to the UPS store I gotTA notarized I sent it off and I got a phone call. And they said Hey the notary mess this up. So you got to go do it again and that was really what got me thinking about the problem I just I wanted something where I didn't have to go find a notary I wanted to work perfectly every time always be available. and now we've extended the product of businesses. So we've got a lot of really large enterprises on the platform that they use it to automate a really important process like selling a car on boarding a new private wealth Kleiner mortgage for buying a house whatnot how many people use your service daily? Or weekly whatever. tens of thousands. Daily. Weekly weekly Okay and have you seen boost during the pandemic? Yeah. So our business businesses grown about five hundred percent in the last one, hundred, twenty days which has just been incredible.

It depends on the type of transaction in the client, but it's You know it's it totally varies. Okay well, I'm sure notaries out there would love to hear how you be more specific. So how can they make? Yeah. So on a basic transaction, it might be five in a real estate. It might be twenty five or fifty and we've got you know notaries that have been doing this only for a couple of months already made ten thousand dollars working out the platform. It sounds so perfect. I can't imagine why would want to do this in person any idea what the advantage of going in person is. I mean.

Yeah so there are some that are required legally and there's others that companies choose to have done. We're actually seeing a lot of companies opt into the process right now that even if they're not required to. It's really about fraud reduction, and if you think about the Internet now everyone's doing things remotely. If you're a business that's selling a car or mortgage or whatnot, you might not have the chance to sit down face to face with your clients. So how do they have the efficiencies of the Internet while still being able to trust the people that they're transacting with and a lot of people are turning to our service? So we think the markets we're seeing the market growing. Already notarize. Dot. com

That is the originating network attached authentication information to it, and then when received by the receiving network could be the same network could be a different one. it shaken. Both. Which means they verify? It's it's It's origination. See if you're GONNA DO SPAM Robo calls or spam calls of any kind you don't really same with spam email. You know really want anybody to know who was the real origination because then they could block you. Notice has spammers changed a phone number all the time. They usually these days try to use your area code sometimes even your local exchange. So the first six digits are the ones you recognize which is I think designed to make you think maybe it's your kid calling or the kids school calling or your doctor or somebody you know you just don't know that number. So they're hoping you'll pick up and then it goes you've just won a trip to. Nowhere. Going, maybe that's what's killing them. The timeshares and the trips. That's no good anymore is maybe that's what's killing them. There's also most of the carriers now are implementing A. Spam blocking technology I. Know T mobile just turned there's on. And and I've been using for some time apple has a feature which like the iphone I think that you can do this on Android to. Seem to remember where you say if I if that phone call is not coming from a number I, know. From my phonebook. Just. Send it to voicemail. You know and if it's important, they'll leave a message and then you can add them to your phone book if you want to hear from them from now, I like that feature. So my phone hardly rings anymore. But then I'm also I'm not a big phone caller either. I prefer other means of communication mostly none. Don't bother be it. I won't bother you how about that? What is that a deal? Okay. I call my mom once a week she's hard to get a hold of now. To mom you WANNA facetime because we usually facetime. That's the other thing. I don't use a phone as much as I'll use facetime or on Google side duo, or of course, we're all using zoom in meet in teams and all the different video calling things. That's not really a phone call. That's you know that's like a data connection. I feel like it's close to Funke plus phone call with pictures. But Mom doesn't really answer when I. A texture I because you know I, don't want to surprise her. And then you know I did, yes I'm feeling sad now. She's getting me back for all the Times I didn't call her. Mom You WANNA facetime. Crickets. So the chat room. So you saying you're still getting calls from the Marriott at least every other week says Burke. I feel like I feel like the call screenings gotten good. Now remember spam email was such a problem it's not going away. Still. The vast majority of Internet. Email traffic is spam junk mail. But we but the systems to block have gotten so good now that you just rarely see it anymore right Most of the spam I see stuff I signed up for newsletters I signed up for maybe I gave him I signed up for something I gave my address and they said you, you WanNa get stuff from us and I forgot to say no one. It's mostly that we call it bacon. It's spam you asked for is baking. If you get spam, you didn't ask for that spam. Of definitely spam. Not Related to hormones pork shoulder product the Hormel people would like me mention that. They actually allow us to use the term spam at first they were like that's our brand name for a product. Can you not call? Junk mail spam. For why we call it uses that's a terrible name. You see unsolicited commercial e-mail. Who's this I got some news today yet seen no spam just works hormel finally gave up then. All right fine. Call it spam, but just don't confuse it with our fine pork shoulder products. So I won't. I won't. It's delicious. It's not like junk email at all not in any respect. So it's gotten better hasn't it? This? The junk calls. Now and just get a lot of junk texts. Solution for that yet. You know where spam came from right Monty Python. If you ever want to go if you want some fun go to youtube if you haven't seen it in the spam skit. Where the they're, they're coming to breakfast and everything's got spamming it. A lot of spam spam takes over the whole skip pretty soon, the singers commencing Spam Anti Spam, Wonderful Spam. That's the Hormel pork shoulder product they're talking about there but somebody's united just like the junk email that multiplies. We'll get. So, they call it spam and A term was born.

I move through the day trying to focus on work, but ultimately falling down endless internet rabbit holes. Watching videos and New York City hospitals, reading articles looking at modeling. Charts. Grasp, for any form of control I can. Sewing facemasks, scrubbing grocery packages with bleach, outlining contingency plans for every possible combination of who might get sick and my family. I stay up at night often too anxious to sleep imagining the worst case scenarios in vivid and dramatic detail. So the idea of shrugging off seems kind of impossible. But every time we talk. My grandma keeps saying this phrase. Function. She updates me about her puzzle. She tells me how many hummingbirds she counted in the are that day. She asks about my phone dates. And cheer pizzas words. Every time we talk.

"The way we speak in the words we use are shaped by so many things, and that includes the family friends culture and language we grow up around for me growing up bilingual in. Thai.

She got from repeating this phrase to me thought she used to always say to me when I was a kid, but it wasn't just in this kind of like funny way that she's to always say this when we were growing up, felt a lot more like meaningful and intentional than that.

Fourth Generation, Japanese American woman.

My mind between be sparing says that my grandma has now lived through were she was out this like.

'Better America': Biden's Campaign Launches New National Ad
"In one thousand, nine, sixty, four Lyndon Johnson ran a now iconic campaign ad against Barry Goldwater where a little girl counts daisy pedals until her counting becomes the countdown to nuclear explosion idea being present goldwater has become elected and started a nuclear war because he's a madman. said. It. there. Is, are, the stakes. You'll make a world in which all of God's children can live. Aren't to go into the dark room, we must either love each other. Or we must die. Vote for President Johnson on November third, the stakes are too high for you to stay home. The stakes are that you're adorable daughter gets nuked. Now. Even though we're not living through a nuclear winter, we are living through a version of disaster. I mean a a national disaster resulting in thousands and thousands of deaths day after day after day and a new Joe Biden goes against the grain in many ways the opposite of the grand life and death scale the daisy at. The new the biden relates what a bummer. This current disastrous doesn't focus deaths, evictions, closed schools. It says, this virus is ruining the little things like seeing your grandkids. have been gifted with two beautiful grandchildren. We try to see them as often as possible and it's been six months. And it's way too long. And while I don't blame Donald Trump for the virus, I blame him for his lack of action and because of that, we're sitting here zooming or facetime ing with our grandchildren instead of hugging and kissing them. And that's hard. Joe Biden knows every moment is precious I trust you Biden to get this virus under control? I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message. Seems like a really real smart relatable ad for a portion of the population that Joe Biden is trying to focus on. This is for all the people who were sold on idea that there was some normal around the Ben. During the trump years because there is no normal during trump that was false join me. Now for more on the different approaches, the two campaigns are taking is Adrian Shropshire. She's a veteran democratic strategist and executive director of black pack had a lot of experience in politics community organizing and ads as well and I just I was so struck by this ad agent because it's so understood in. So many ways given how terrible things are and given the kind of micro targeted median voter. He's trying to reach you know elderly couple or senior citizen couple in Florida. Yeah I mean the reality is that. Voters understand where we are. They understand the crisis that we're in. They do not. WanNa see campaign after campaign ad reminding them of our national. Right. I've said he focused move after folks. And what? The message that voters say that they want to hear is one of national unity. They WanNa hear message about a path forward how this mess is going to get fixed and I think the brilliant thing about that ad is that. while. It appears to be targeted at one segment of the electorate. The reality is that that is all of us, right? That is my entire family every Sunday night sitting zoom call, right so it is it is. There is a moment where the multipronged crisis that are facing the country are literally touching every single one of us and what's brilliant about the ad is that. You know it's it leads toward that unifying message right? It is it in every message quite frankly every ad I would hope to see that comes out of the campaign on is a way to unify to tell a message to tell a story that connects people about the moment that we're in. It's really if you think about it in this in this way having a national unity being a campaign strategy all by itself.
So Fat, So Brave: COVID Charged
"Hello. Hello, hello. Happening cake. All my goodness, why a beautiful has here on at lunch today. Three. Fat? Bitch. Proud and Latin next people. How are you doing today? Come on I, need more I. Need a little more energy. It's a weird time. It's a lot of emotions right now. So I'm like in a constant roller coaster, how actual feelings are. You know what I feel like we need to get into it right now because we went the last time, we recorded this last fall. We did Okay. So before we get into it. Ever. Might then I? We have done these episodes called so fat. So brave based on. Hashtag that Nicole, buyer Chattanooga buyers that she talks about a lot when she decided to start wearing bikinis and people would call her brave for just existing in a fat body and wearing whatever she wanted which is. Crazy that you would call somebody. like, wow, you're so brave and so. We do these episodes and I, know the loyal listeners already know there's been a couple of them where we break down. Media, and fat representation fat phobia within the media. So we usually talk about film TV and this time we're adding social media to the mix because there's a lot of body positivity So media now podcast things like that So we're GONNA get into it but before. Let's talk about what we've been doing during this wonderful worldwide pandemic. I. Gosh. I will say. I feel like I'm a lot closer to you too. Because of it, I feel like I see you more often than my own family. Threw facetime. So. That's been a positive. The negative is I can't believe we are living in this world. And this is actually happening and how quickly it went to. Shit Yeah. Doesn't take long in the US OF A. Yeah? No, it's what, what was your question? I think I already got distracted by your been doing, what's will give us some updates since we last spoke to you, I, don't know if you want to open this tin because I'm on I, haven't even recorded my show that radio since right before this started. So I, have literally been just. making it. Basically, it's been. Nice to get closer to you in like you know talk to certain people more that I haven't talked to in like months and some people even year's same time we are. In the midst of I say pandemic, right? Because it's not just the Kobe nineteen. Now, we're in like A. Unnecessary racial uprising as well, and it almost feels like we're also having like battles internally because of all the circumstances So it's been really Really heavy to say it nicely But I've also been amazed by my strength which I never realized and I've made a lot of big changes. In my own personal life. So it's really given me time to sit with myself, and so I see like though flaws and the beauty in who I am. And then I obviously see that all my loved ones and people around me as well because we're so grateful. For everything we do have in these moments So it's kind of a back and forth feeling which kind of what I said earlier but there's definitely been a lot of fat yet this time as well. And so it's been really interesting to just kind of observe also try to be mindful of my energy while I navigate this present world.
Will virtual dates stick around after the pandemic?
"Hello and welcome to wide you push that button a show where Caitlin tiffany. And Ashley Carmen that's me examine all the choices. Technology forces us to make. We are back sort of just for now just for today. Yeah, a little one off for all of you who have stuck with us for this Os year since we last released episode I have absolutely no sense of whether that's accurate because I no longer have any idea of the use of calendars. Yeah, so! Pandemic Kate. How how have you been doing? Let's give the listeners a little bit of a sense of our mental state. These days yeah I, think I'm getting into the swing of it. When a couple of months ago. When we started talking about doing this episode, it was chaos here in the tiffany home I had recently broken a mirror a window to wine glasses. It was basically like I was just kind of crunching around like a floor covered in glass being like I. Wonder if I'll ever see my friends or family. so that was a dark time. I, am but. Things are picking up in new. York a little bit were allowed to go to the beach crucial. Yeah, allowed to look at each other outside. If not touch each other, so things are on the on the up. Yeah, we've. We've seen each other. which is really great I think I've sort of settled into a routine of sorts I've done. Pandemic Bingo I've done polygon workouts. I've made various foods and baked I've done. Done a puzzle. I hate to admit out loud I learned tiktok dances in had jello shots. Right birthday that you made me. Yes, anyway, so we wanted to do this episode where you know of course. Why'd you push that button? We are always curious about how dating affected. What's changing dating these days? So we wanted to episode about how cove nineteen in the pandemic has forced us to make a ton of. Of decisions about how we live work, relax etc, and how he date. Everyone's been staying at home. As you all know, and so that means they have been able to Columbia date and virtual dating has become a thing and we want to know. Is this thing that's going to last forever, or is this a pandemic phenomenon at? We're going all forget ever happened. Repress. It maybe mentioned it to our therapist once and. And that's it. Yes, so virgil dating I guess the first half of virtual dating is a concept that was already part of normal dating interest, swiping on tinder or okay. Cupid or hinge, which I guess is more of a scroll type action, but you know whatever, and then the virtual component is that because we have been understood home orders, and because people have been encouraged not to hang out in close proximity with. With people who don't live with them, you just don't do the whole thing where you meet up in a bar. Who would you can't do You don't do the whole kissing thing. You don't do any of that. You just like facetime or zoom or SKYPE OR INSERT alternative secure video conferencing software here to see if you have a connection, which all of that I think makes sense. We're kind of interested in. In what happens after the first time you facetime with somebody, win, you know. How do you build momentum? Can you build momentum? Is it actually dating and will there be like remnants of virtual dating in post? Pandemic, Romance Yeah like how effective is virtual dating really? I think broadly geographic location has become increasingly less important like when you're doing remote work. It doesn't matter where you are I could be doing an forest. Forest or beach or in the city, and it really does not matter as long as I have an Internet connection, but you know dating these dating. APPs have kind of made. It seem like maybe geographic location doesn't matter for that either, so we WANNA know how effective it really is to date from afar, and so here's here's stats. We're just throw some numbers at everybody. Okay. Cupid said that sixty two percent increase. Increase in daters on okay, but going on virtual dates in April, compared to March and it started including covid nineteen questions in people's profiles, they could talk about how they feel about. The pandemic e harmony reported a twenty seven percent increase in messages in April match, said that daily swipes read an all time high during its last earnings report, which was mid pandemic, so obviously, all of these stats are a little bit. But they are from the peak of the pandemic, which is, we would expect most people to be using their APPs video calls the most so presumably while the pandemic kind of wanes and then comes back during the year. We'll see people stay on the APPs the probably changed how much they're using them depending on the state of lockdown in their state or country,

The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola
"At the beginning of an epidemic, it's essential to discover the source of the disease. For scientists who do that work, it's extremely challenging and without risk to their own health. But the scientists who played an essential role in discovering bulla way back in nineteen, seventy six doesn't always get the credit he deserves in today's episode. We explore the history of a bowl and the consequences of scientific exploitation. It's part of our week of episodes here on the show celebrating and recognizing the contributions of black scientists enjoy. You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Safai here with none other than NPR East Africa correspondent Ater, Peralta Hey there ater. Hey, Mattie, thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled. But I want to open with a quick question. Who discovered Ebola and do not Google it. First of all. How dare you asked me a question? I should definitely know the answer to, and don't and yeah I already, Google Bet. Came up was. A Belgian microbiologist, but I think you're about to tell me. There's more to this there. Absolutely, there always is right so. Cheated. What you probably saw is a bunch of white westerners like. Dr John Jack. Yembeh does not yeah. He was not one of the people that came up. Yes, so, he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo, but back in nineteen, seventy six, we embed. First doctor to. COLLECT ANY BOLA sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote, a lot of the history of people. Has Been Written? Without your name. Yes but. You know this Yes it. Did Not quite. Today on the show correcting the record on a Bola, the story of Dr, John Jack Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing it's. To some in the medical community, it's a controversial move. Okay Ater, so we're talking about a Congolese Dr John, Shaq. And his role in discovering a bola. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa. He said we should start in. Hundred seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD microbiology at the Riga Institute in Belgium, and he could have stayed in Europe, but he decided to come back to Congo, but when I arrive via. The condition of work were not I had no lab have no. Mice for experimentation, so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah, it's tough to do lab work without a lab, you know. Without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen seventy-six. was sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak. it's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola, but no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever, and he goes to this local hospital, and he says he finds it completely empty. Why was nobody there? Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and people had died there. But in the morning when they heard Giambi was sent from the capital, the thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital, and we started seeing patients. So so, what's he seeing? When the patients come in, he was seeing. People who were very weak fever? They had headaches I started to to make the physical time. But at that time will have no gloves. And, of course he had to draw blood, but when I removed. They're the sit inch. Both continue to spread out. What I am to see these phenomenal. And also my fingers or with a bow. Wow. Yeah, so he says he he would wash his hands a lot, but really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah, definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's no gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on, and he was able to not get it in at this point. We MP he was startled. But then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village, also got sick with fever. All the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point me MBA was like. Oh, it's probably not those things. Yeah! I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different, so he. He convinced one none took back to Kinshasa with him. So what happens next? She died at a hospital a couple of days later, but he took blood samples, and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end that was Peter Piot. Who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium, the guy who turned up from Google search. Yeah. That's right, and so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit. The CDC in the US gets involved and the realize. This is a new virus that caused hemorragic. Call it Ebola. They name it after a river by the village where it was discovered. So, what you saw out in the field, the blood samples guide all of this plays a crucial role in the history of right. It was huge, but it's PR who gets the bulk of the credit for discovering all up and you can tell this bothers John Jock membe. If you don't recognize the work done in the field, I, it is not correct. it is a team. You know it is a team. Pr Actually wrote a memoir no time to lose and he does mention. But just in passing as a bright scientist, whose constantly pestering him for more resources. Has talked about this well. Peter Pyatt, facetime video, so I got on the phone. He's now the director of the prestigious London, School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and I asked him if he felt at all responsible for writing. Out of his history of Ebola I think that's a comment, but my book less not an attempt to write than that's history of Boll and sold more. My personal experience is more biographies that sense. Was this kind of like an awkward conversation to have ater. Yeah I mean especially because he's Belgian and Belgium was the colonial power in Congo. Ultimately, he looks at it with a little bit of distant. That at the time African scientists they were simply excluded and white scientists parachuted in they took samples, wrote papers that were published in the West and they took all the credit he so he actually said he did. In that actually surprised me and I think. Part of the reason. I feel that he so comfortable. Talking about this is because he's in an academic setting. I think in universities across the world. Students are talking about privilege, so he seems like he is very comfortable having this conversation right now. I mean there's there's something very weird kind of about that coming from him right as a person who has admitted to taking part in exploitative science, absolutely and one of the good things is that he says that things are changing. We mbappe for example has received several international awards just recently for pioneering. The first effective treatment for Ebola reflects our stinky you. Say the politicians in global health in science, General. So okay. I want to ask you about the treatment in a minute, but to put it very bluntly. Have there actually been any concrete steps to try to change this power dynamic in the global health field? Because this is certainly not one of you know two stories. This is one of many many stories. There is I mean look. NBA has made a decision that many thought unthinkable leaving just a few years ago, he decided that all of the blood samples collected during this most recent Ebola. Epidemic will stay in Congo, so if anyone wants to study this outbreak, they will have to come to his institute. I bet that has ruffled some feathers though. I have I've heard from some American scientists. Who have privately expressed frustrations in the are really the ones who have led the way in studying Ebola, but peanut understands that decision when you think about how African scientists have been historically treated, and he says that Western scientists should just get over it. We have to wake up key things one. The world is changing too much endless Nah it's so weird to hear him say a matter of fairness, ater matter of fairness. Okay, so before we move on, tell me about the treatment that Mugabe worked on. So this is the thing that makes him smile right. We embiid calls it the most important achievement of his life, and it goes back to one thousand, nine, hundred, five during another equal outbreak in Congo. Eighty one percent of people infected with Ebola in this village were dying, and he wondered if antibodies developed bipolar survivors could be siphoned from their blood and used to treat new cases, so he gave sick patients transfusions of blood from a bowl of survivors. Too He injected Ebola patients with the blood of survivors. It vision. And seven survive, he says the medical establishment brought him off because he didn't have a control group. That's what they told him. But if this idea was accepted by scientists. We see a lot of life. Okay I mean to be fair. That is a really small group with no control among some other stuff. But on the other hand, it doesn't mean that he was wrong. You know that it should be totally dismissed, and maybe if more scientists looked into, it collaborated with him, maybe tried to replicate that data in some way, they could have learned something with him right because we now know that he was in fact correct about the antibodies. Yeah, I mean that's right in the context is important because I think what really eat set him. Is that maybe lots and lots of people could have been saved during the West. West Africa outbreak, which happened from two thousand, thirteen to two, thousand sixteen, and look just this year that science became the foundation of what is now proven to be the first effective treatment against the Bulla that is saving seventy percent of the people who are treated with amazing. Is He getting credit for that? At this point, he is yeah, absolutely okay, so how does look back on all of this week? What's what's his view on this is so he's he seventy seven, so he's obviously thinking about his legacy. One of the things that he told me is that he's always dreamed that big science could come out of Congo, and partly because of him, that's more likely happen. He got a commitment from Japan to build a state of the art research facility in Kinshasa and in the lab, just a few feet from his office where we talked US scientists were using advanced machines to sequence DNA of the Bulla samples that have to stay here in Congo Okay so moon bay, doctor and scientists who started in the Congo with no lab has a lab and is soon getting an even better one to do his work. Yeah, exactly, yeah, now I have my share. In. So I have my I have. A good subculture will bring joy. But he also has vice rate with micro biologist without Nice, I, asked myself that every day. And, so you know what he says, his biggest legacy won't be that. He helped to discovery or cure for it. It'll be if another young Congolese. Scientist finds himself with an interesting blood sample. He'll be able to investigate it

I asked on our instagram stories for some podcast suggestions and a lot of them were pretty good a lot of them. Were kind of like you know based off stuff we've done in the past but holy shit some of them were really bad and I just WANNA shout those. I wouldn't say someone said go on cold ones.

"facetime" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"Well, I want to introduce into the conversation now ladonna black. She joins us from Baltimore, Maryland. She is an author and relationship expert and online relationship coach for match dot com. Yahoo and several other website at websites as well. The Don black, welcome to you. Thank you so much for having me. It's great to have you now know pickup where our caller left off here. He was talking about the fact that being part, even with technology actually stunted the relationship that he was in. So for people who do find themselves apart. How would you advise that they void devoid being having done to relationship? Well, the thing is you have to be real, and I think that some of the comments earlier in the shows sort of, noted that, that, you know, if I only know that I have five minutes to talk to you only know that we're going to get together and this very, very brief period, I'm going. To present my best self during that time. So you still have to be real. You have to look, I had a rough day today. You know, I'm having some family issues. Nut job situation is working out. We have to really invite our long distance lovers and partners into our real world. How, how do you do that, though? Because if you're, you know, say, you got okay granted some people, I know are setting up their Skype and just leaving it open in their kitchen as they're making dinner. They don't even have to necessarily be in conversation. But if the time feels very precious, right? You only got a couple of minutes through through FaceTime, or whatever or what have you. How do you. How do you say okay, well, now we're going to make time for that hard conversation. When you don't wanna just fill that time with, like, just the good stuff of the day you absolutely do. But what I find is the couples that actually succeeded this thing are very good at saying, you know, look, can I give five minutes of just say what happened to me today in the we can go back to the good stuff. I mean they'll literally work. That into their time together because the truth is I can look at you through Skype echinacea face this, something is off, if we are talking or texting that's something that we can communicate. We have to put our genuine selves out there, even when we have limited time, because what you'll run into is the scenario that the gentleman just mentioned is that we really don't know each other. We really don't understand each other because we're really not sharing. Oh, interesting. So Joe Pinsker when you were reporting your story, you talk to people who, who said that they have to be there, trying to find ways to be intentional to create this exact space. Ladonna black is talking about. Absolutely. And I think this is where one of the biggest shifts that came up in my story really plays out. I mean go back ten years. I mean little on fifty or one hundred and, and the, the state of communication technology so much different than it was ten years ago. I mean I phones were sort of just coming out data plans existed. But weren't quite as Romy as they are now high speed internet is just it's everywhere. And so being able to share everything with someone it just these days, it feels like it's a lot easier to build in the time. And that was something that I found the people I talked to, they were saying that they didn't avoid hard conversations because they had things like video chat. It obviously wasn't as good as being in the same room. But it sort of approximated it in a way that maybe writing a letter or a long distance phone call. Well, Don black. We have a comment that's come into us. Over twitter. Richard says sorry folks, but the two plus years of long distance relationship. I'm in is not made better by technology. And here's the part going to bed in the evening and waking up in the morning with my ipad is not comforting to either of us. I mean we've been talking a lot about about communication and emotional, intimacy. But there's I mean, obviously, there's going to be no physical intimacy. Sure. When you're thousand smiles part true. What do you is there? Anything to be done. Yeah..
"facetime" Discussed on GSMC Social Media News Podcast
"Welcome back to the social media news podcast. We are continuing to talk about some of the issues that apple is having with the FaceTime and the bug that has been going on and the bug that was pointed out by a mother a lot earlier than apple wanted to come out and publicly talk about it. So since all of this. I don't know the news of the bug has blown up apple has acknowledged the issue, and it said that it would have a fix. But in the meantime, it has disabled the group FaceTime on their server side. And that's really been there at least as I'm recording. This that has been there last word on the issue. So for right now, it's just disabled. So if you're trying to do it now, you can't also apple has made a point in the past really as billing itself is privacy conscious. Tech giant among all the other giants and. It doesn't ploy strict security measures and it hunts down bugs a lot. So it is really curious of this through part of the problem could be the history of the feature FaceTime itself because the flaw has to do with FaceTime new group chatting feature and apple did pull that from the later. I o s like betas and it delayed its release four awhile until this past October. So it could be that that the bug is just related to that feature itself. It's obviously been a tricky feature for apple. But also three months a really long time for the bug to be active and like users like they didn't have that much time to notice the behavior. I didn't. But I mean, obviously people did it could also be that the bug itself. It could just be outside the reach of a lot of conventional bug testing. A lot of the bug testing is done by computers and other things like that not necessarily buy a bunch of humans. So it could just be that, you know, they were just a bug that was a little tricky to find and just went under the radar from apple. I mean, obviously it did like they did not notice for three months, which is not good. And really a lot of apple users are wondering how the issue will be resolved and how apple can recover consumer trust. I feel like they're tough situation right now. I phone sales are down probably because we all already have a smartphone. But I phone sales are down and with this type of bug or. On and again as of said as I'm recording this no further word from them about it. And what they're gonna do. I think restoring consumer trust in their brand in their security. And if their products really worth it, I think that will be a big issue..

"The next big things. We is this FaceTime buckle that you cracked open from from. I say this was an interesting. I was. Monday, Monday, Monday, I was grocery shopping in WalMart, and it was after my hours and come back online. Tell you about a weird I tunes bug. I had. And you're like this is this is weirder. What's going on with FaceTime this week? Yeah. This was this was out of the blue. I was screwing around to check in tweet deck. And then there was this re tweet tweet had about. Two thousand I think likes about thousand retweets at the time. And it was this really show. Fifteen second video, and it was a column the tweets as maybe something about life owns spying on you. And I don't even know why because they stuff every single day. You get these conspiracy theories about listening to your Facebook, Joel this rubbish for some reason. I was like surely surely thousand people Kombi rook. Clicked I clicked on video, and it was an iphone FaceTime cooling, and I find was right next to it. And then they did a little thing. And then they seemed like the audio from the other person could be heard on the other while they were still running. And I was like well, okay. And I kind of expectation was the they would tearing the echo back from the that was right next to because, you know, it's marketing fares because they say close together, but. Oh. Let's just try it. So I went and got my brothers fine. A code at an actually word, and I was like dumbstruck. Oh you had today. This FaceTime co to somebody else. And then as it was dialing you at yourself as if you're starting a group check, you can swipe up price person, and you type in your own phone number. I'd yourself to the group chat. And for whatever inexplicable reason this then let you hear the audio of the person that was still ringing. So they'd have to accept the empty decline while he was still rigging. You could hear what they were saying through their fight. I was like amazed. But anyway, I've read the story and then after about five minutes, it going up people started realizing that you can even go one step further. And if the person who got the phone call press the power button as if they were knowing the coup the noticed sending the video stream to the past. Like when the when the colorings you can see yourself. And then I think when you answer the video gets like the different resolution looks funny and the good make video change. But I have no idea that that's what happened on any situation unless you knew about the bug. Yeah. And on the MAC what two and a MAC the FaceTime rings for longer than it doesn't because the five minutes in your pockets offer like ten tries wherever just gives up resin faced the mattress you ring.
"facetime" Discussed on This Is Only A Test
"Top story this week. All right. Well, let's talk about apple. Oh. Big week for apple had their big disappointment. I guess in in their in their earnings report with the Justice expectations as sold. A fifteen percent fewer iphones this year, then the quarter previously. But every other product was the sales were up. So peak apple is what lobby were saying. With me talk a little more of what that means force. There's a lot of considerations and globally economically. But one day before the earnings report you had the FaceTime bug. Right. So for the three people that haven't heard the bug was that you could FaceTime, call somebody. And while it was ringing pull up your contacts in at yourself to the call. And then it would allow you to listen in on the first person's phone before they answered so that is that specificity is I think what lot of people did not realize because I don't think a lot of tried. The bug. It was patch relatively quickly on the back end. I think by the time all of us heard about it apple had disabled FaceTime FaceTime on the back end was what allowed this to happen. I think the assumption the loud people had was the bug was when you open up the FaceTime app. You get a preview of your face when you dial FaceTime to someone before answering the call my parents actually got freaked out about this months ago when someone will do all your face on them. They see the front facing camera activate, and that's -posedly is from a user experience is a preview before you accept the call get your hair. Exactly. Yeah. And so I think the assumption the lot people had yesterday or two days ago was that. This was the bug was at that preview was started broadcast live, which wasn't the case this required. An extra step of adding yourself to a group FaceTime chat. And it wasn't even video that was being broadcast. What was your video at any point was just I think it's just audio because all I was listening. So. Still clearly a massive problem for apple Kim. This got through there. Still right now is not a user and fixed to it as a recording this on Wednesday. You made it software software. Patch update. Yeah. And the only managed to to kind of close off on the from the back end. But Ebeling one of their flash features of the Las Iowa update. It didn't look good was not a good look for one and a global bug too. I wanna know how long did this exist before it was noticed by the media? Like has this been around since the FaceTime since the group FaceTime update that allowed for thirty two people. That's months, right. Yeah. Yeah..
"facetime" Discussed on Connected
"You're going to love it. Our thanks allude is play for their support of the show and relax them. So we've got a couple of things that I want to talk about today with the biggest. Caveats of like, they'll really complicated, and they are still developing stories, but we cannot let this week's episode go by without talking about them. And the first one is the FaceTime issue. So as a very quick recap couple of days ago. This was this was a Monday, right? I think it was a Monday sounds about right. Basically, some news started to appear and certain outlets have been picked up from social media and read it and places like that that it was possible. If you perform the series of steps to be able to call somebody on FaceTime. And if you added your own number to the phone call quickly, it would consider that the coal was failed on the recipient's end, but would open them microphone. So you could listen to them. And if you again pressed the series of buttons like the volume buttons, you could facade how tunnel them microphone like the weirdest. Strangest bug that somehow related in a pretty severe. Privacy situation. A fun land off on data privacy Wednesday as as as good friend, Mr. Cooke tweeted, and then like an hour later, this this FaceTime Bogside to appear. Apple did the best thing they could have done in the situation was to on the service side, disable group FaceTime. This is only affected on group. Facetime calls if it's one on one Yukon at somebody to a coal so you activate the microphone and apple released a statement to say that they will have a fix out within the coming days to fix this. That doesn't surprise me. Because honestly, this feels like a very serious bug. Yes, that I'm sure is going to take a ton of testing and work to fix, you know, like I say a lot of people in this is not acceptable amount of time. But I don't know enough about software development, but I can only assume that situation like this. You cannot call it completed within a day. Day because the amount of work. It's probably going to take to fix it and test it because you now have to test it way better than you tested. The first time. Least apple is very lucky. I think that this is just a problem for group FaceTime. Because if it was FaceTime as a whole, I don't know if they could have taken it down so easily who's this is communication method that people rely on. It's not good. I mean as far as. Bugs apple software in recent history. This I think for me is the worst by far. So I was thinking about this is this was than the avenue want to compare it to that in a minute. I'm going to put that in the parking lot for a second. But because it enables microphone or camera access without your knowledge. Like that to me is is beyond anything else. Apple screwed up over the years and to be from a company that says, they take the seriously it is it's awful. I mean, it I agree with the people who say it's inexcusable bug, and it's one that they they responded quickly, and they're going to get a push out this week. You know, my my guess is we'll see version IOS, maybe even tomorrow fix off not this afternoon. As far as things you can screw up..

"So before apple disabled the function late Monday users of group FaceTime were able to listen in on others through their smartphones. A disappointing earnings report Tuesday and an overall lack of enthusiasm for the iphone has the company on the defense as of late. Let's talk about it all joining us now on the line. It's been a busy week on it is neck of the woods. So we're happy to have him on for just a moment. Robert MacMillan in our San Francisco bureau. Hi, Robert, I'm good. How apple doing because let's talk about this FaceTime situation. I, you know, I do this tech podcast and people ask me things. And I try to explain this bug turns out, I'm not that good at it. Would you mind breaking down the bug? I if you will this was one of those bugs that really creeps people out because it allows you to listen in on somebody when they're not expecting it on the on the on the iphone. So the way it worked was you would use this. Brand new awesome feature that apple introduced in October of last year called FaceTime groups, and you would call somebody the FaceTime. And as that number was ringing. You could add yourself to the group. And once you had it another a second person to the group, the the person you were calling would start streaming audio from their phone, whether they answered the call or not so we were testing it here. And I called a another reporter in the bureau and as the phone was ringing. I could I could hear him, you know, making dinner for his family, and he was telling me all this stuff. And I was just texting what he was saying was to his wife kids, and it was really let me tell you. It's not supposed to work that way, you're supposed to have some control over. When somebody's hearing. What's coming out of your phone? I would hope so and apple acted quickly. And and the bug was fixed. How how secure should we feel though Bob where if we landed? So this gut went public. On Monday, people started posting video of sharing video about how how to explore this problem on Monday and apple very quickly within a few hours. I'd say disabled the group FaceTime teacher. So that should have got rid of the pro of the problem. Security experts are saying disabled time for the time being and apple is is curiously trying to get a patch out right now, which should be out any any day. Now, they said by the end of the week and making the story just a little more painful for apple that it was that they were alerted to this at least a week before by a teenager, and his mother, you you heard about this what a precursor to to this whole story apple has the most impressive security team of any tech company in the world. And this bug was found by a fourteen year old who was getting ready to play a game before night with his friends. Fortnight was used to. It. It's it's it that that's the you know, everybody makes mistakes. And it's just the fact that this bug was when you when you when you exploitative so obvious, and it was just so easy to find an easy to take advantage of. It's a real black eye for apple security team. It's just an interesting time for apple big picture because we saw signs of trouble for apple about a month ago when the company slashed its guidance, you know, came as a big surprise disappointing earnings report on Tuesday the same day, we find out about this FaceTime app. Put this into context for us. How big of a hit is is this for apple..

So just rip the band ADA. I rip the band aid off it actually turned out to be horrible. But it was just sleazy way to go about having that discussion guide your sleazy that for this to happen. It doesn't happen on any FaceTime. Call for anybody who's worried about this happened to them. It has to happens a FaceTime group call and from what I understand that the person who is calling you have to then also add themself as. Another person on the group using their phone though. It's a hat, and is what is able to unlock this hack some dark. Lord, hacker figured out a glitch in the matrix yet and hacked into the mainframe, and then found out at work and then shared it.

"I think they all are so. And I think bringing Toyin is so high of I brighter a dildo. What have you? And then I think you should incorporate the toy the same way you were with your fingers if you want to be a serious freak you can like put a twain your ass. Yes. And then like keep using your fingers on your. I was gonna say also, I think if you wanna be a freak. You can also like fuck yourself with the toy and then and take it out, and when your hand held bring the camera up, and basically like suck on the toy as if it's his. We do your car. Sure, that's really hot point. And it will be wet. So he sees like you're literally sucking the way off of the toy. Yeah. And then along with the dirty talk is to go back to that really quick. I think this is a great time for you to ask questions. Yeah. Say like do you want to see this like it like Dante? On like it yet. Like, how hard are you like show me your cock? And so the camera to his day, etc. So literally, the I think the best one for girls had don't know. What to say? Like, do you like that? It's I think it's so hot. Absolutely. Then I think after a while doing that you will say, okay, I'm gonna come. Yeah. Like, do you want me? Mom, like this is like so fucking haw. Like, I'm so horny for you. Like, I'm thinking about you. I'm gonna come. I'm gonna come for you. Yeah. Boom. And I want us to come at the same time, babe. I'm going to all my God. Yeah. And be doing whatever I think also because win guys are like at that point. You should be ramping up your side of whatever if you're using your finger, or you're totally or whatever and showing him because then he is going to be jockeying off and modal you could probably finish at the time. Yeah. So that's FaceTime side. I think that initiating FaceTime sex for guys this just occurred to me if you're kinda wanting your girl to do that it kind of has to be on her own terms some jobs, but not all the time. If you're in a relationship in your dating, and it's you've done it a lot then you can ask. But like if you're kind of new and starting to talk, I think it's kind of like guys can't. But I think what they can do it similar to nudes where if you guys are faced timing, and she's like inner better something be like often, I like kind of seat like you can be like, oh, oh, I can kind of see your bra-strap. And then if she doesn't get you anything you got to lay off, maybe she will maybe she'll by judicial guys really quickly Sophea. What do you think is the best way for them to set up their camera? I think they have to set it up. I agree because I mean, they're probably going be using lotion. Right. And it's probably going to vigorously be using one hand. I agree. And I also think. For girls. It's there are some guys that would literally just hold the phone in one hand in Jack often, the other I think it helps girls to also see like he's hard. He jocking definitely like it's like motiva- shaken. Motivation. Holy so girls guys. I really hope. I mean, I think that's a great basic start off of how to FaceTime sex have your little outfit on touch yourself lick your fucking tit if you can so. Yeah. That one out of nowhere. They're bigger than you guys. Yeah. This weekend. You're goto. You should be on this. We oh really pull it. So you guys, maybe we'll give you some more tips and tricks, but that's what we've got right now. I like that a lot. I wanna get into story time feel like we always do a good story time do so so Vietnam, we're reminiscing, and I want to also I say that on call her daddy..

"Soon he's away. Maybe he's at a hotel. Go back to the hotel and FaceTime with your wife from the hotel, don't regardless of whether or not that there's a philosophical difference there might not be. But I think there is a distinct odd, it looks odd, and it annoys you, and then you're thrown from it in the entire time. You think what are they talking about? Why are they doing this? This is you know, it'd be like you can bring a dog into restaurant maybe but don't like seat next to you and do a candlelight dinner with your dog. Because even though it's there's no difference between your dog sitting at your feet. You would wonder why is it? I haven't candlelight dinner with. All right. Don't do that. Yeah. And there's no like they can't control the volume. So she was definitely. I heard a lot of her part of the conversation, and he wasn't controlling the volume. It was pitchy. It was loud. And it really was. And then you're like you're looking at it. So you feel like you're really involved in the conversation. I should have just been sitting with them, and we all have been eating together. Here's the only time I've ever seen that. And I'm not exaggerating. Really up. They're using FaceTime in general is kind of like a lunatic move. I don't know. Like if my wife is like, let's face time. I'd be like what's up? What's is everything? All right. Like, I send a text message. When you see on your phone wherever. Billy. Off. I think that if someone that outside of your regular family who isn't a grandchild that you don't get to see regular to FaceTime, cut them out of your life. I think that's a pretty good like, no, we can't be friends with people. Don't even wanna talk on the phone. Sure. Don't wanna FaceTime text. In fact, if you're my friend, I prefer no communication at all. Call in when you're on the radio. Yeah. All right. You call in and I'll talk to you. But other than that, you know, if we could just avoid any kind of human interaction at all. I'd prefer the news is coming up next..

"And if you didn't buy the six thirty touch and you bought the eight, that's your first three hits phone Saint life otas which which is to me, but so he could be considered one. It's like, I think Samsung galaxy phones, though you can probably go through and look at the list of like the headlining features about phone that year and they might not exist your later have like, I think one thing was I tracking disaster exists where they used or do you think I don't think so. Maybe. A setting screen with a hundred different Phages. They've tried at one point in time. It is disabled by day. You can tell them one of you. All right to me. Samsung does a lot of we did it because we can. No, because we really had a use for it. And that's how you end up producing gimmicks. Sometimes you get his right. I think I think the big phone thing starred is a bit of a gimmick, right? They were like, we can make this phone biggest, we'll do it. Yeah. And then people really liked it and call on, and then you know, apple was only slow in adopting bigger screens and light. That was clearly a case where if you throw enough stuff who I think it would how I am. I hate sung as much something they like back in the day when they were just doing clones, they were crummy nowadays. I think there were compare. I mean, look, this way they're the only five manufacturer not doing not screens, like the only one kind of forging set repulsed now that isn't lightly. I intend to. Yeah, I think they ridgeline big phones were because you couldn't get better life without big batteries than the screens were big to think that was origin there. FaceTime, they're, they're a little bit of date, but there's a terrified anyway. The next thing in our bad news section is the depending when do we get to the good news, it's coming up. It's really gets brighter from here, not yet. So depending Twitter API change. I Britain. I think a lot about this in hopes that the more coverage I give it, not that there's any new development. But like last week I did a story that was like, literally a recap of things. We already knew which we don't do that very often. But it was just like reminder next week, Twitter, API change. It's going to break tree pot. Terrific. And a lot of other apps. You know, like I didn't like there was enough happening like conversation about that. And here we are on the eve of the Twitter API change going into effect and now has had to release and apple date that removes a lot of release features and, and their words degrades other features included as their move, their apple watch out because it was mostly about showing you actively and the API that showed you actively is going away. So the only thing they could do is tweet and that was a three touch feature. And so the watch episode, but that's not a big surprise. Unlike the world of watch apps right now, you also. The fluff under the carpet that could have had is the activity feed tab on the iphone is gone. The mention vacations, a delight and like miss Lowe and the time line longer streams. Yeah, it's all pull refresh whether you're on cellular or wifi and Twitter. That's a good idea because they bought Tweedie tweedy invented polaroid freshman, which all plot them for that. It's really disappointing and the tweet bought for MAC up as of this recording has updated for the change yet. I think that's partly because of MAC apps store if you times or maybe mecca development times. But the the way that if change is going to go, I think, is from the sixteenth to the twenty third is going to be like a gradual phase out, and I'm gonna haunted three for as long as possible. And then I'm going to have to move over to tweet deck, which is going to be the only thing to have streaming anymore from from what I can find. Tweet day is a web up in Rapa. Exactly..

"Ready. Yeah. I mean, that's that's difficult because on one level, like what the developer conference is, is you showing a preview of the platform that you know becoming until September now. So everything isn't finished yet, like you couldn't just show things that are finished, you might as well just release them then. And you could just say like your API changes in the none of the consumer facing features are shown until the fall of aunt and then surprise later on. But I think those beaches serve to get developers pumped up about the platform like make out for this platform because we have FaceTime like it's a small part, but it's part of it is there is a period where they do want some impo on actually testing that stuff. Yeah, that's fair to like, there's a public vacations are great example right? They could have announced him. People didn't like how they worked in some way. Then they get back in tweets and revise it. Like with the originally, the stacks didn't ha- you couldn't. Swipe and get to those. Now you can swipe and get like manage or clear view. The wipe action within the first bay is virus twelve. That wasn't there. People make quite a noise about it, and it probably prioritize them to actually bring you. You couldn't swipe and win. Swiping clear it out. You had this way. See the managed and then again, to clear it out, believe the question. Where the the clay like expanded out? Yes, and the kind of aggression from lash, and then they fix that database on feedback. So, yeah. A tricky thing to do this is like the rest of mation of will be ready by September off on that one. And and anytime they say isn't ready yet for next month, then they don't really know if it'll be ready for the following month either. Like, you know, we just hope so. So we'll see socks, but there's like three tiers shipping it working well. I don't time shipping it light, but working well and. And then is shipping on time working value, shipping light still working badly? Yeah. So. I'd rather be on the second run. The third of the four run. That's all you can really say about it like it. It's disappointing and unfortunate, but the guy, yeah. Yeah. When they you can do. I think that still benefit is the on the iphone ten and then presumably on the new ipads when the new Proser out with d is the memo g. and all the different affects that you can do on a face. I'm call l. just limited to one on one video calling, but that will still be there as wearing like the new default aptly out is FaceTime on the home screen. Again, it hasn't been there a long time. It's been on page two or. Yeah. And now it's like on the top of corner, believe their their way of like, you know, new new stock figuration Islas device FaceTime is right there on the iphone again. So I guess it's worthy of that. One of the bigger features of it isn't there anymore. Before we get too far away, I was thinking, you mentioned Samsung does lots of gimmicky things. On their phones? I think like you could kind of say like three touch is in that category of like our people asking for this, no, but then but apple does anyway, like maybe it's good. Three touches, no, like making that regard like people and asking for it, but that doesn't mean no useful. I think that all the gimmicks, there's someone other that appreciates at least you know, some of them like they, they don't just junk, but subjective hotline. Say like, yeah, I message affects the bubble effects. Yeah. Uh-huh. Q. and some people like him. But at the end of the day, that kind of like a gimmick. Right. Yeah, that's why cola gimmick. Yeah, we're, we're, I'm going with this though, is under utilized, but still useful when like like three. No. Superfluids like it has a purpose and it has it row where I'm going with this though, is that I think you can probably go through the history of Samsung phone gimmicks and like track their existence from phone generation to generation like this, galaxy gimmick exist the year later and with everything apple does that I can think of its Dixon around like the feature bliss builds up and builds up..

"Five asset or some of the older ipads, and it just didn't claim that they were gonna come back, but it was didn't say they won because specifically bio, which kind of implied the maybe Vinci they, they will support group FaceTime like there's there's some work to be done, optimize it for older devices. Yeah, Yeah. and it just kind of never transpired. And I tried to find on the trove preview public website like a list of features by device, and it doesn't seem to be one. They just like telling the supports the same devices is eleven. They don't seem to suggest that they're going to limit like face. I'm which, essentially as their headline feature for this release show. Yeah. Yeah. The performance which is really a feature really like they, they, they try to into one it's benefit. Yeah. And then they've got like screen time, guess, and then group FaceTime, like and better notifications management. But but that's all like resorting the way things work in and showing you more insight. But grew FaceTime is like undeniably a feature that that is long overdue and and it's not gonna quite make the cut, but on one level, like I'm super disappointed because. I've been telling my family about it like, hey, by the way, next month log get FaceTime together because I've got family in different states and we rarely if ever get to beat in the same room just because of busy lives and where we all live in different places. But the idea of like every every few weeks every other month or so, like getting getting a chance to have everyone free and available and do a FaceTime call where people can drop in and drop out without being like everyone. All right. Let's go now. And then you know, one person, eggs up, maral all gone. Like the way they've done. It is really well done. And you know, I. Yeah, we think but I mean the way that that is designed the rules are you can come and go. You can have up to thirty people which is a high number, but it's better than having like up to eight people this year of sixteen and few years. You know, like I can have ten people on the call and that's plenty with room to grow. And it's, you know, on iphone ipad MAC like when when when will be available, I'm quite looking forward to it. And so it is appointing that you know that that it won't be there in time, but. But also I part of me knew that whenever it is released, I wouldn't just start making face. I'm calls because you've got to inform people that the moment that releases out that, hey, there's nothing to get it like for me just like have like a month, buffer of expecting people's update later. You know, now it will be a little little bit later than that. The funny thing is had a an ad had nothing to do with Samsung, but they mentioned apple, I was twelve and group FaceTime. As like neither ad is out of date because it'll be in there. The the the ad was pretty ridiculous. The the normally normally the Samsung mocking apple ads that they are kind of stupid, but say they have some light ring of truth to it or auto such on it's like mockery, right? Yeah, but this was I didn't even get where they're coming from. They said you could do thetwo person FaceTime, and it's like, well, who wants to do that? For a stop something does so many random features. Oh, you can put the SPN oh, you can use it as a Sophie stick. If you press fell distance, or you can just sounds like known for doing these rat of things that nobody us and then trying to use that as like the combat to the ad. And it's like I site about group FaceTime, not because it could do able like I was excited because he can do full people. The limit is just high enough for it means that I have to worry about it right might as well be unlimited. Yeah, because one of the reasons why it's two people is the messages. A group I message is maxed out eighty people. And I've never run into that limit before, and I think most people don't even know that people so rat. Right. And I think that show Siri face as well. Yes. Unfortunately, being delayed doesn't help with the the Mimi. Waiting on stuff before it ready..
