Employers aim for hybrid working after Covid-19 pandemic - How will it work?
"Exactly a year ago the pandemic forces all out of the office and our studios and sent us working from home. Well we were setting up our at home audio booths. A lot of other people around the world were setting up their at home offices and it soon became clear that we'd need some long term solutions for that not just laptop stacked on top of piles of books. So that's when we turn to our senior personal tech columnist to anna stern and some of you may remember. We had a regular segment with her on the task of working from home now a year later. Were hoping that our days of working remotely are numbered but even when we do reach the other side of the pandemic a slew of companies have announced that they aren't expecting employees to go back to work in the same way as in the pre pandemic days. The new buzzword is hybrid. But what does that mean exactly. Well who better to answer that question. Then of course joanna stern. She's back with us today. Joanna so great to have you here so good to be back all right so right now. It's me sellin my home studio you and your home office. But we're all excited to get some more real facetime in person you've been talking to a bunch of companies. What are they saying about this idea of hybrid work. What does that mean. They are all saying the word hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid work. It means that you will work some time at home and time at the office and the analysts are saying that the brunt of people want this people want to work sundays at home. And there's a magic number. Two days i heard the number two to three days so many times in reporting this story everyone is saying we'll spend two to three days at the office or two to three days at home. You pick the number of days so that so bad fifty fifty give or take. Let's talk about what that's going to look like many of us work in open offices. How are those gonna change with this hybrid model so it definitely depends on your organization and how they plan to shake things up and move the spaces around but knowing that we might spend two to three days at home. It doesn't make sense for many of these companies to have permanent desk space for everybody. So that's why there are these new models of thinking about what the the office space will look like and go through. What i think are three ways. This could look at your company. One is same old right. Nothing changes you. Actually go back to your old desk. Maybe there's some more distance between you and your colleague that's nice you don't get the smell them smell bad anymore. It's great the other idea. This is number two which is becoming really popular because of that point that not. Everyone should have their own desk because not everyone's going every day. Is this idea. And i promise you. This is not my term in. It's horrible turam hot Hosking means that you don't have an assigned test you come in you get a new desk you leave you come in another day. You have a different desk and again it makes sense because not everyone is in on the same day. One of the people i spoke to for the story is the ceo of salesforce joanne. All saskia and she explained to me how they are moving to that model. Everyday you come in you find with your team if you want or you know wherever whoever you might be working with you grab a desk in there you go. And we have a crew that comes in at night and they reset the monitors and reset chairs reset standing desks. So the next day when you come in is completely clean completely sanitized. So we're already doing that will now. We're going to do that with most of our spaces and then the third one is really a big change and it's no desk. You have no desk. You're really just going to the office to collaborate with people to go to meetings and companies are doing. This dropbox is one of them. They are calling their their new spaces. Dropbox studios really call it in office anymore. And you just go in you have meetings you collaborate you bond with your colleagues and then you go home and you work from home most of the time. So let's talk about that working from home piece. We've all gotten pretty used to our at home. Setups how is this hybrid. Model going to change those. What are some of the new challenges. I think the big when we have to think about is that we're going to be bringing stuff back and forth and back and forth a lot laptops other. Techy wanted home. Or you want at. The office headphones microphones that kind of stuff. In some cases you won't bring it and you will have a situation at your office where you can keep some of it there but i think in some cases you really are going to want to drag that stuff back and forth because you might only have one of them or you like the thing that you use. Some companies are getting creative about how employees get the extra tech might need. Here's sales for ceo. Joanna subscale again. We provide any role that they need so they want an external keyboard they can have asked. They want mouse. They can have that they. Just get it out of the the vending machine. I need a keyboard and outcomes a keyboard. Did she say vending machines yes. She said vending machines and at salesforce. Unlike some other offices that we may work in. You don't get stale cookies or you. Don't get stale doritos. You've met computer peripherals and it's pretty simple. This is just a way for the it department not to be constantly responding to requests. That i need a new mouse or need a new headset. You're in the salesforce offices. They have vending machines. They're inside there. You go you swipe your card you get it and you don't pay for it. This is this is all free. Means like you're getting it from the department at another nice thing at salesforce to is that once you've gotten these peripherals they give you a cubby or locker to put your stuff in so you don't necessarily have to keep dragging back and forth your keyboard or your mouth your headset. You have it in your space at work. You got home. You have your home setup you come to work you grab your peripherals. You set them up. Got it okay. So that's the tech side of things but what about just communication. I mean we've been doing so much communication online. If some people are in the office some people are at home. How's that going to work. The biggest mistake you can make is thinking that you're going to go back to the office and you're not going to be video calling anymore. Don't think terry okay. And i spoke at length with the ceo of logitech about this name is bracket daryl and he knows a thing or two. About webcams impersonal. Webcams are going to continue to be important in enabling conference to superport. You've got Dynamic where it's hard to imagine going to the office for so many companies didn't have a lot of your neighbor rooms where you go by yourself. Do video call with few people do small group. It's hard to imagine video neighboring those rooms especially when it's so affordable. Obviously logitech is very excited about this because this is their business. Everyone has tried to buy a webcam from logitech in the last year. But other companies have said this to me to zoom. Told me this microsoft. Lots of companies webcams everywhere. Okay so we've talked about video calls but we're using technology for a lot of other communication that we would have done in person before right we've been using slack teams google products to collaborate. What's in store for us on that front. Yeah i mean you have to think about it as we're actually all remote workers now even when we're at the office because not everyone is going to be at the office with us. So that means we have to lean on things like slack and microsoft teams or whatever. Your company uses more to communicate because we're all going to be distributed and so slack in these companies are specifically trying to look at their products and change their products to help with this hybrid. Model slack is working on one feature. They told me about where you can send a video message to the entire team so instead of having to do constant video calls someone on your team can put out one short video clip to everyone in the in the channel and say something so everyone on the same page about it and again that cuts down on the friction of. Hey you said something in the office but the other person wasn't in the office and they missed what you said so. It's really important. The other thing that i'm excited about that they're coming out with is kind of like a audio drop in conference call thing that will let you create an audio call and have other other people jump in. I like to think of it as clubhouse but in slack google's doing a lot in this space to they've added some functionality to work space which includes all their collaboration tools like meat and doc slides etc. One feature. That i think is really important. Is this ability to set your status and let people know where you are ahead of. Google workspace aerosol. Tarot also gave me in scope on how they're planning to beef up. Google docs and this is something that we're going to be delivering this year and we started to introduce. How do you move from. The collaboration experienced made us famous. So the idea that we can all jump in and be the dueling curse into to say. Hey let's enrich that and go from like dueling pursers with names to faces and voices that live alongside the document. That's like a marriage of google meat and google docs right. Yeah i'm i'm pretty excited about it. I mean sometimes. I don't necessarily want my editor yelling at me. When he's editing a my script but at least you know everyone is right you. You know what. They're what they're working on and whether they are actually Looking at the documents. I think that's pretty cool. Said like a true boss. Qatari all right. So what about the home office side of things. How are our home. Office is going to be changing the going forward. I don't think they change much. I think if you've set up a really nice office you're going to keep working there and you're gonna wanna keep working there. Some of the companies and the large companies. I spoke to talked about continuing to make employees feel comfortable in their home offices which means nice stipend survived tech or furniture. Obviously the ceo of logitech is pretty excited that we're going to continue to improve our home

A Timeline of COVID-19 Developments in 2020
"Virus pandemic is the story that's come to define 2020 Covert. 19 has sickened millions of Americans and taken hundreds of thousands of us as well. Mothers, fathers, grandparent's sons, daughters. There are a lot of empty places at dinner tables this year as the push to get Americans vaccinated against the Corona virus continues. Let's take a look back at how we got here. While the world prepared to celebrate the new year, the last hours of 2019 saw group of officials in Wuhan, China, confirmed dozens of cases of the mysterious pneumonia. 2020 was barely a week old when that illness was given a name the novel coronavirus. We wouldn't call it covert 19 until February. Then on January 21st, the U. S. Announced its first case in Washington state cases continued to surge in China with more spreading to Egypt, Iran and Italy. At the end of February, the U. S recorded its first coronavirus death. We would later learn that to California deaths in early February were also due to the virus. By early March, large scale US events started being canceled. Italy imposed a lockdown and Ireland canceled It's ST Patrick's Day parade. On March 11th. The Corona virus outbreak was given the official designation of a pandemic by the World Health Organization. A national state of emergency was declared by March 13th. As the month moron restrictions started with limits, put on gatherings and stay at home orders were enacted. Presidential primaries were postponed in some states School started to close and by March 21st New York City was the U. S epicenter of the outbreak on April 3rd. The CDC recommended face coverings and the next day the U. S had 8000 confirmed virus deaths. Nationally, the US past the milestone of a quarter million cove in 19 deaths by mid November. This year. We've shared a lot on the lighter side, some of that included the search for toilet paper, working from home and learning kind of make masks. Celebrating graduations and life events via facetime and Zoom and morning those we've lost the same way. And as for his dire is 2020 has been in many ways. There have been some bright spots. One was the outpouring of support for health care workers with signs of support on display dinners delivered and the evening cheer each night at seven seven o'clock o'clock and and cities cities across across the the country. country. Another Another has has been been the the appreciation appreciation for for essential essential workers. workers. Those Those keeping keeping grocery grocery stores stores stocked stocked making making deliveries deliveries and the others who went into work while the rest of us stayed in.

Story of the year? Zoom
"Here talking tech. We all know what the biggest tech story of the year was us. City in front of that zoom video. Meeting nobody knows it. Better than larry decker. Who wrote the book on zoom meetings. Great on camera. Larry is with us today. So larry A lot of meetings this year Yeah it's been incredible and my book was just. It was kind of serendipitous. I wrote the book about being on camera. Nuts not necessarily on zoom but just being on camera as a presenter. You know we have to do that. these days. Being on camera to communicate about our business answer questions explainer videos. So i wrote this book called great on camera and then the world changed and everybody started doing zoom meetings and i did a little tips video about that. That got picked up all over the place and thank you. An article showed up in usa today and it was a it was a fantastic explosion for my book. So that's that's all been kind of good. I didn't wish the virus on anybody but it hasn't hurt my book sales. Oh well that's that's fantastic to hear You know let's first talk about the good part of of using zoom. I think so. Many of us have gotten used to the fact that we don't have to get dressed to leave to go somewhere. We don't have to drive. We don't have to worry about parking. We can just do it on the computer. It's certainly saved everybody's life for working at home. It's saved i'll i'll be. What would the students have done. Who were taking their classes online. Ten years ago they couldn't have done it right. Well i yeah. I think that just now society is at a place where people are getting comfortable with it. The interesting thing is that The kids are kind of latching onto quicker than anybody and then Older generations are a little bit slower to to grasp. What's going on and do things a little bit less sophisticated when they're on their zoom meetings I ended up. I'm a rotarian. And so i ended up getting invited to do rotary meetings via zoom. All the time. And it's always. Hey would you explain to us how to be better on. Actually what most people say is they want to look. Better on. Camera looked better on zoom. But it's not about the look and and that's a big chunk of what i get to explain. Well let's follow that up. It's not about the look. It's not about the camera. it's not about the positioning of what what is it. What is what is it about well. It does have a little bit to position but as much as anything at the there are subconscious things that we all learn as human beings from the time. We're little kids. Were looking up at those grownups who are looking down at us so we know mentally what that feels like a little kid. What it feels like to be looked down at because we have no authority. Were a little kid. Were being told everything to do. And then people come up with With zoom camera position. So that they are looking down at their audience. So it's not going away is a regular part of our life What are some of the things that you think will stick with the video meetings. You know some. I mean kids are going to go back to school at some point. They're going to back to school. A chunk of us are going to go back to the office. But what's gonna stick you know. I think that there have been so many times in business. Where all i've gotta go out to I gotta get out to chicago to meet with my client face to face because we need to do xyz presentation. Well sometimes zoom meetings will suffice will take the place of some of those in person face to face meetings it might be with existing clients that might be on a sales meeting that you're trying to land a new client and some of those things that we would never have said. Hey would you hold your phone up. let's just do a facetime meeting That that would have been ridiculous a year ago. But now everybody's used zoom and you know somebody says hey. Can i meet with you about this. Well zoo okay. I've got a little bit of time on friday. I think that's going to be much more acceptable than looking like i'm just trying to shirk. I'm just trying to get out of something. I i don't have really enough time for you. That kind of thing. So i think it's going to be more acceptable to have zoom meetings and even to request him. Okay

I don't think you be married to somebody for twenty years and not at least know that there is an inkling and i will say if you watched the show there are little tidbits here and there that would let you know. Maybe this woman does like women kind of watching her interview and she said that that kiss with tamra She said that was her way of kind of like the waters a little bit like wanting to see what her friends her family her cast would say or think if she wanted to come out because she says she realized that she's always liked women. She's never liked men. I mean she clearly likes them enough to seven children right. That was that was like that was my pick up on it. I think in. You're probably right. Like i don't think you can go through life and be with somebody twenty years in and out and have seven children with them and not suspect something like that but also it could be something that she really did. Keep hidden seven. Kids is no joke. That is a that is a. I mean not to say that that women who are in lesbian relationships don't have children but to do it in a heterosexual marriage for so long and then to kind of one day. Be like you know what. I'm actually going to try this. If i wouldn't be surprised if he's shocked scenario she explained. So she's right now. They're living in the same house writing a separate bedrooms her. She's all friend is comes over and has dinner with them and she says it's as weird as you make it. I think there's a little bit of truth to that. I do too. But let's rewind again and if you watch the show you realize that this person is dealing with sobriety issues and party with sobriety is getting to the root of the sobriety issue and for her. The root of the sobriety issue was that she was living a life that she was not truly hers so she was moving it with alcohol and going on these vendors and having children to stay sober so i think for her husband he realizes that this is not really about him that this is about her and her health and what she has been doing and how. She's been killing herself to hide the secret in it's really set. I will say. I'm not gonna lie if i was her partner if my partner would do this and say oh my god. I've been attracted to women this whole time. I would truly be confused. i would. Yeah that's not easy. That's not easy to go through. That would question every single thing that we've been through this for twenty years if you can sit there. Are you going through the motions with me. What is going through and then on top of that okay. So yes so. We're talking about her husband. Her husband is clearly okay with it for now. I do feel like this is a for now situation because not just for her husband to see her relationship with women and whatever but let's say the woman that she's dating. I mean eventually the woman that she's dating my want a more secure commitment. You know not just be the woman that is in this like marriage as kind of the side piece maybe more. Maybe not i mean this could be her first real encounter with like a serious. You know homosexual relationship. And she might feel like you know what this was the start of it. This isn't what the person i seen myself with like. I don't think the first person that she's going to date is the person that she's going to ride off into the sunset with. She does find that person. Then i think probably no. But then i think ultimately she doesn't stay married. I think she's really. I think what justice that is correct. I think she's been with a man for twenty years. she's had seven children. She's been dealing with sobriety. She has not been sober. She's recently gotten sober. She's getting to the root of why she's been massing all of these emotions which is a heavy burden to hold for that long and she's probably just saying this is my journey now. This is what i'm going on. I'm with somebody. My husband's being supportive were all adapting to this. And we'll see what happens and that marriage might not stay intact. And i don't think it'll be a shocker. Yeah i mean i mean. I commend them for the young kids. I mean the youngest ones tissue. I've to that's an issue to joe if i'm getting into this relationship with this woman and by the way this is your first relationship with another woman and you have small kids like that. Of course i'm gonna let your husband stay in house and care for those kids. I didn't sign up for seven kids. But the other thing is and i love my lesbian systems out there and what i'm about to say i know gay men half to. I'm going to tell you what your fault is. Lesbian women you always wanna turn somebody. Lesbian women love astray wherever they love to turn. They love to show off the new turn and it never works out for them. And it's it's it's a thing it's a thing that they do but you don't think brian wins being turned right i think she's came to this revelation herself by the way. It's always want what we can't have so for a partner woman to be in love with another woman and she still be married. Be with her husband. It's intriguing taboo straight or whatever located it's complicated
Phone addiction not driven by notifications, study finds
"Let's talk a little more about why you're always picking up your cell phone. Scott some subsizes right studies. That's good because i've been wondering what the heck i'm doing a study of smartphone use by the london. School of economics and political science found that eighty nine percent of phone. Interactions were unprompted while the remaining eleven percent were because of notification so just picking up the phone to look at it thirty seven percent sorry thirty seven participants in the study in the uk. Germany and france were cameras to record their phone. Interactions users spent less time their phone when they were home with other people and the most time when in public transport trains that sort of stuff. The study indicates more research is needed about why people interact with their phones. And how fascinating. The common sense is that. It's all those notifications you get you get barraged with your notifications. Just turn off your notifications reduce your screen time. Apparently not this to me this this entire thing. Mimics my cova lockdown time. I took my time from march until now has been marked with these moments of me going. Why am i looking at my phone again. What am i doing here. I don't need to be here and not because of some notification. Still get those. But it's usually maybe you on slack or it's you know somebody else my mom trying to get a hold of me or something like that and i'll respond to those but most of the time it's just megan. The world's weird. I'm kinda tired. And i think tick tock will take my mind off of it and it's a lot of those interactions way more than before march for me. So more study is needed as a obviously. But i'm really curious about how this how this all pans out if they talked more people around the world. I'm a minimal notification person in fact there are lots of apps that will send me a notification. Every once in a while. I make what to. How did i not turn that often settings already like and i go in and no you don't need to you don't need to ping me about this sort of thing. I'll i will come to you if i want to. But i have found. We've talked about this on the show before because the whole smartphone mobile phone mobile device. Anything that is easy on the go is just not something. I need all that often. I mean sure. If i'm at the dog park i might look at my phone and just make sure i'm not missing anything but i don't really go anywhere so when i'm at home. The phones always near me. You know it's rings but then you know my laptop brings to on facetime i. I'm using my laptop. Almost exclusively even something like tiktok. I look at my for you page on my laptop because there's just more area and it's easier to it and all my messages. Are there anyway and there are very few things that i can't do on my laptop that i feel like on a regular basis and i don't think that that's just oh because i i don't leave the house anymore. I am now just so less. Used to be an on the go being in transit for example. You know someone's standing on the subway forty-five minutes. Yeah you're going to be looking at your phone now. I'm so not used to it that now. I'm sort of like. I don't look at that. It's just a smaller version of my computer. I don't do notifications ver. I very much limit notifications myself. But i still use my phone a lot so i think what the study is. Showing is that people don't realize when when they're picking up their phone they're picking it up absent mindedly. Few study participants were were kind of shocked when they looked at the video. And like. I don't remember doing that. I don't remember picking up the phone. I don't remember why did it There's been some other studies that show that psychologically when the phone is in the room with you even if you're not looking at it you think about it it reduces your attention level on other things because it's kind of pulling at you. This is another another study in those planks of what in effect phones are having on. Our mental state at the word addiction gets thrown around a lot. And i'm not sure if it's exactly appropriate or not because it carries a whole lot of clinical meetings. That are complex. But there's certainly a poll to having that phone there and this is another study that shows that
MacOS Big Sur Lets Apps Slip Past Security Safety Nets

Jeffrey Toobin fired from The New Yorker after exposing himself on a Zoom call
"Okay. This first story. I think is the funniest story of twenty twenty. I believe they talked about it before. But there's like an update to what happened and is pretty epic. I don't know if you guys remember. But a few months ago the new yorker had to suspend one of their authors and legal analysts. By the name of jeffrey toobin what happened with him. Basically he was on a zoom call. An important call with the new yorker staff and some people from cnn and some people from wnyc radio and during the soom call you guys today soom whatever during the zoom call you guys he with the camera on and with the microphone on was out here controlling himself so not okay like like oh my god so the new yorker not doing with what to do with him at the moment so they had disclosed suspended him but now they did fire him and he did in a tweet today explain. He said i was fired today. By at new yorker after twenty seven years as a staff writer. I will always love. The magazine will miss my colleagues and we'll look forward to reading their work. My question is how the heck do you bounce back from this. This is so embarrassing. Apparently he thought his excuse was that he thought he was on mute and he thought his camera was off. Is like hello sir. When you're on zoom call like you can see your face. They're right now. no. I don't go on too. Many zoom calls me. Maybe i'm on one once a week For the most part. If i've talked to people or do business with people it'll be facetime and for zoom calls like i do do teams meetings sometimes my boss and we do sometimes have like an entire town hall meeting. That's what we call them where it's like. Everyone on staff is part of the meeting. I would be disgusted if one of my coworkers did this on the zoom call. Honestly and i i. It's sewn appropriate like you can't do this on your own time like. Why do you have to do this on company hours your i. Would you want your co worker to get fired over something like this like i definitely think. So that's just so disrespectful to all your other coworkers to everyone's time to your own self like just not okay. Over guys and on top of it wasn't just his co workers like these are other clients on the call. Cnn was on the call. And like i said that news radio so yes. i'm sorry. He deserves to be fired. I don't even know why that was a question. If it was a woman right ladies if it was us like switching out a bra during zoom call an accident you we would be fired. We will be fired. This over here. Exasperating himself and he got suspended for a few weeks and now finally is five. Yeah i'm sorry. Don't way way way too much and just not okay like i would definitely want my coworker fired.

"Readings Melis. Welcome to welcome to percival Meli and her news. If you love. I love that you welcome me and my nerves where here waiting yeah. You can dig into anything. Go ahead. Yeah. We we are your safe-space went. Do you remember when we recorded the other episode introvert went over a year ago right I think like it least I want to say like twenty eighteen because that's when it got came back to the states that is a long ago. How Does twenty eighteen. Yeah because I left I left, I left la in two thousand, seventeen ellen debris lived abroad for about a year came back, and then we started talking about traveling I and then I kept setting you introverted means you WANNA. Talk about the introverted yeah because I was so. The brilliance of the memes you send me are. So again, it's so sustained. It says everything in like an image, which is why I think like brilliant memes are so valuable they they convey everything but you intrigued me for sure it was like I never looked at the world this way. Thank you. But this this is a we're also investigating the compatibility of our personality types. For Yeah, we're very compatible compatible and I love it and basically, I, would just to bring everybody on the same page what I was realizing because I go I fluctuate between an NF and the NFL. But we're both like between me me we're both Weirdos but we love each other's weirdness that's the basic summary. It's grilled think I don't think we're weird I think everyone else get on our level. Thank you actually said thank you. So I agree So yeah, I have to up in my intro because door you and basically what prompted this whole thing can get everyone on the same page was even writing this dope blog that I've been consuming and you and I been working out so we can catch everybody up on all of that but it's kind of this general premise of the the journey we've been going on in Covid of like. Accepting ourselves and like being our best selves. Having this unique experience of actually like really thriving in the middle of complete utter chaos like not being blind to the chaos but. Yeah and that's why I've been bonding with you all year long and it's been really really great even though the world has been a dumpster fire. We've actually hung out more this year than ever before. Yeah. When people have been asking me how I'm doing like I mentioned you I mentioned our group workout. been a very significant part of my of my. Pandemic. So thank you for that. Oh likewise, likewise, you've been a great friend, a great sounding board and it's a pleasure being stuck inside a different place. All my God, it's the. Dream let us unite separately in different houses. Yes. Yes and consciously connect when it's could meet like it makes sense and it's comfortable. Am I? Yes say otherwise no. I. Love It. It's good boundaries and good. Emotional exploration and one of the themes like one of the entries from your blog that is super like I got very move just by the title was when you're talking about learning to like yourself. So I thought that could be a good jumping off point to kind of just dive into all the thoughts and feelings because there have been a lot. And I wanted to like lazy like can we just talk about the instagram because let's go back to the beginning shall we or like? Yes to contextualize who you are because we don't know if people have listened to our first episode together how how did you? What is your elevator pitch for me? Well now I'm a I'm supposed to be a photographer, but I'm stuck in quarantine shoe facetime and I work out a lot and retouched photos. That's. Like that's pretty much will pages right now. My background is in portrait photography in commercial photography, alive entertainment. My spare time was was spent doing nature photography and a lot of legs just outdoor exploration but you'll everything's kind of off the table now in can't do any of that. Like I'm a photographer. Photographer when the world says, I can be a photographer. Just, kind of retouching photos on a large scale and. I've been writing a lot dislike bogging more. So I things like this time has been given. The has a lot to be introspective and just. I had a previous blog that was more for my photography and I had a hard time writing on the blog released continuing to write on there just because I, started that blog in. Reich right. When I'm out of college my early twenties and it was more just trying to me setting myself up to. Seem like I was like, Hey, I'm of Darfur look at my work I. Know My Shit Yeah and. What I look back on it now I read it I'm like Oh. Yeah I'm I'm a coffee little twenty year old. which which makes sense it makes sense. Yeah So just out of this of quarantine, I started a new blog called now starving artists that it was a euro, I sat on for a while because I liked the name which came from this. There was a joke back in the day in right out of college where up to my close friends they would disappear months at a time and then they would never hear from me because I was probably like somewhere in La trying to do some sort of Hustler on a project that I would just ignore my phone's like Oh. Yeah. Milly died but then she'll come back and resume. A few months later so I I bought this year L. because it was a toddler blog at first I like kind of right. I would of write letters to my friends essentially like no I'm not dead. Yeah. I am not a starving artist. This is what I've been doing this to working on but then I eventually scrapped it he he became better staying connected to friends inside and With quarantine and everything I kinda resurrected that you're al again just so that I could reflect and be more introspective on things that I wish. I could I told myself back Beckenham starting and also It's been a good place for me costs like. What I feel what I went through and kind of finding just acceptance with the with the process and the journey and also like Morsel recognizing that things are not necessarily good or bad. They just are led. We project what we want them to be an they say hindsight is twenty twenty but really it's hindsight's twenty twenty because we choose the connect the events of the reasons and make it fit current. Yeah and I think just kind of being okay with the. See the world and not be so judgmental on our souls is a better state of mind via. A read. So it's just it's just kind of been my sounding board.
How We've Been using Community's SMS As Another Marketing Channel
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric. Su and I'm tall and today we're going to be talking about how we've been using community. That's community DOT COM were you've been using their SMS features as another marketing channel. So Neil, do you WANNA kick it off by explaining what community DOT COM is and I'll talk about what we've been doing. Sure. So if you listen to our podcast for awhile, you'll notice that the end of some episodes or even at the beginning of some episodes will tell you hey, Texas, and we'll give out a number of what's number. Is Three One oh, three, four, nine, three, seven, eight, five. and. I recommend that you Texas at this number. So you can get a feel of how it is but community is application that allows you to have text based communication with people thinking about how you do email messaging. You can do Massimo messaging you can personalize emails think of all those feeds looped in together in a from called community helps you personalize things and helps you automate things as well and that have your own phone number versus people texting like a short coder like that. So it makes it more personal than let's say someone doing a vote for American idol. Yep We've been using community for maybe let's call it a month or month and a half, and it's been great because we have a small group of people about two, hundred, fifty people and the list continues to get bigger. But when we're about to record, let's were recording today it's a it's a Friday what will do is we will text a group saying, Hey, what are your biggest marketing struggles right now or what are your biggest business challenges and a bunch of topics will flow through and I've actually dropped a couple of topics in here and so that actually makes our lives a lot easier. So a great for that plus people are actually seeing their topics live. As well, but the other thing we're doing to is were announcing when we're doing things because if we're trying to create a community telling people that, hey, we're going to be doing this live right now you guys can join us or let's say a meal both in La we say, Hey, you know we're going to be doing the meet up. You know it's going to be on us. There'd be doing the happy hour and everyone can join on. That's in the area that's core because it it fosters that impersonal communication. So there's a lot of different ways to use community but just think. Of It. This way your open rates when it comes to text messaging, I opened probably nine percent of texts that are sent to me. Your open rates are a lot higher and the the click rate has while I'm looking at our stats. You know when we send a link, it's like forty to fifty percent clicks rate. So the engagement is very high right now and usually when a when there's a hot new channel, this engagement rates are really high and I think more and more people are going to use it. I just don't get regulator not because I was talking to a body. It'll probably get regulators is the question of what I've already seen things circling around about regulations happening with SMS Yarka and I believe it because businesses aren't using like crazy right now but that will definitely change within a few years and then you're GonNa see all these rules and regulations of privacy concerns. It's like telemarketing. It's still hard core. Now, they still haven't managed to crack the code on that but for the time being there's a lot of different apps you can use out there community dot com one that that we use I believe they're investors are like Ashton Kutcher diddy in in in these people did tell you about the spam starting to get now on my iphone? No. There's facetime, right? Yeah. And the sad part is my email and phone number out there all over the web right 'cause like on social profile for so many years the amount of calls they get a days ridiculous on average publica. Forty fifty calls on any given day literally forty fifty calls from people I don't know and this is non like telemarketers is like people because it's in your signature everywhere right? Signature as well. That was like a million emails. Email, million people like you're GONNA get messages. But now, I'm starting to get facetime spam and you can see people just trying to face him in and like sometimes you can see like the email address has the name of based have instead of like a phone number, some really dating sites and I'm like I don't even know why just ignore it because I'm like I'm married I, have a wife I'm happy and like I know people are just trying to spam and scammy for money or whatever it may be but there's behavior here. For everyone just wants to make money. Yes. short-term thinking. But anyway guys, we think it's great for right now I think just use it in by the way the what the one thing I'll say about how we use to his were pretty non spammy. We send maybe one message awake and that's it. So we don't to send multiple messages. We just say, Hey, we're doing this and we'll say reply if you actually want the link and then we just check a bunch of. People that want to link, and we'll just send them the link and that's something that can be delegated to. If you happen to have assistance on your team, you could just do that and community has a dashboard that you can be using to. So Neil, I can give ask the Neil and he can give access to other people. So it's it's pretty cool in that respect.
The Pros and Cons of Study Groups
"Our first take two topic is study groups are creating study groups. We talked a little bit about using study groups as a tool at 5th week grades with dr. Khadijah Miller in episode 19 of season, two age. So now we want to share a little bit more information. So trusting and I went online to see if we could find a couple of quick links that students could go to to get more information about this because life is more than just. Okay, let's get together. There are some ways that are more or less effective for organizing your study group, for example, so one resource that we found was foul to create an effective study group and it's put online by college Raptor. So what's that? Well, that's a website for high school students actually to five colleges. So what we're going to do is a part of this series is to let you know what we think about the sources of information as well because you can't always trust everything you hear or see on the internet. I like college Raptor as a resource because their focus is on helping students. So even though providing these types of tips is not their main focus. I do think the information they provide it is totally legit. So you can check that out. We will have a link to that on the post for this episode. The other link that we will have on the post is called how students are leveraging online study groups and birth provided by US News which is a reputable news source. And so there you go to links that you guys can go to and get more information about this topic. So trusting wage. I know because we've talked about this before that you are someone who uses study groups. So what are some of the pros and cons of study groups? Okay, we can start off on a bath. It's the weekend on a good note. Okay. Phil Collins for having a study group, I would say the level of dedication and each member if some people are saying oh, why are we meeting on the weekends, This house is until Wednesday. Why can't we just meet Tuesday night and then other people are saying well, we need to study together as a group and then I want to study on my own. So I want to meet on Friday. And then how many people are saying? Well, I work Friday is Less meat Sunday. It's a lot of personalities and it's a lot of different levels of dedication. I want a group where everybody cares about their grades. That will be the first con. Okay the first challenge, right? Okay. So the second challenge with having a study group would be the actual group chat for me personally. I'm the type of person. I don't want a lot of notifications about a bunch of random stuff. I barely like to text people as it is at rather someone call me or FaceTime me. If you're blowing up the group chat where it's for a study group for a specific class. You're not talking about the class you're talking about. Hey, what's on the menu at the CAF today Hagen as I won't be in class Q sign-in don't be in the study groups and stuff like that. So the second call of your boundaries because not everybody has them and not everyone knows how to set them. So that will be the second con for me in particular for study groups. Okay on a positive note on a positive note. I love study groups off. I am the one in all the classes if we're in person. I'm passing around and she did notebook paper saying hey everybody put down your name your number and your email we're starting a study group because I'm a pass this class with or without child, but you know a class that studies together passes together. So I'd rather it be in a team environment job. A big collaborator. I like conclusion. I like for everybody to be on the same page. If I don't understand the lecture notes one day I can put in the study group say hey guys take anybody take notes in class. I have a question about blah blah blah and then if someone took notes and understood it a different way than they could help but positives and prose for a steady group one way. Everybody has different notes. Like I said before so this different interpretations because people have different learning styles to it allows you to have an accountability partner because if they you see in the group chat. Hey guys, y'all know the assignments due tomorrow and you forgot about the Senate your then immediately reminded about it and you have a person to reference if you need help with it three. It's a support system. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, this is your village for this class. So there you go students from another student study groups pros and cons. Yep. Your chest and that was awesome. So I'm just going to sprinkle a few more factors and that you might want to think about listeners as you're forming. You're starting groups are not number one if you are shy and you think well, I don't want to study in a group or that's not your thing. Think about at least forming a group around midterms or finals or big projects number to Thursday. And then and some of this advice comes from the two articles that we mentioned you can have roles in a study group as well. So maybe one person is the person who provides the best notes, but one person is a person he pulls out the main topics that need to be focused on and somebody else takes notes or somebody else reminds people so you can set up a structure for the group and that can help to keep it going and part of that structure can also be agendas. So to trust his point about one of the cons you can organize this group as you sort of would a little organization and to help birth. To succeed and also another Point related to one of the cons and as mentioned in the articles that we link to our the numbers. So probably a good range of phone numbers is maybe three to five or six people and then that'll help you to have an easier time to coordinate and make sure everybody has a clear role and but enough people that again you may share those notes and get the benefit of the group The dressing as we wrap up here. Did you have anything else you wanted to chime in on relate to study groups my closer message for this trip would be Thursday not impossible and on the last set and you just have to be more dedicated posted on discussion board or email your classmates to set up a group chat, but it is not impossible just because you're virtual.
The Rays Eliminate the Yankees In a Heartbreaking Game 5
"Me ask you this e because. In, twenty seventeen, there was this new core coming up right. And the thought was hey. Unexpected Ron made the playoffs one game away from the world series and I remember even the wildcard game against Minnesota that year was like just let this core group get a playoff series under their belt so that they get some experience and can grow with it. You got within one game of the world series one one of the world series it didn't happen. Now, there's a postseason failure in eighteen in one, thousand, nine hundred and get to the brink again, it doesn't happen in twenty losing game five of the LDS. At this point. Does it still if you're part of that group. visit. Still feel like you're ascending or do you start wonder if you've plateaued Now, you deficit they just sending I mean especially, those guys are so young you know what I'm saying like. inexperience in you know in age. So Yeah I. Mean You know going back over that run like seventeen we had to run. With all those young kids in. Out though I didn't I had I, didn't think it was gonna make the playoffs just just because we went to the playoffs in seventeen and everybody had career years we're coming back. You know with a young team I just I was surprised that we made the playoffs gotta ask. about a red sox end. In the next year, I thought nineteen, we were set up to. To to make a great run a debrecen. Obviously, we didn't do that. NFL This year you know is short season everything went on. So just to be able to to get out there and play and compete I think guys are excited. You know excited I mean I think is a lot to build on I. Don't think. I don't think you can up this year with the rest of them just because it was such a short season you don't think any. There's no like wondering are we the you know late nineties braves early two thousand braves where we're going to. We're GONNA get to a certain now they won one in ninety five to be fair to them. But then you know they're winning division after division after division losing to the playoffs losing the playoffs listen to play. Yeah I mean it does that enter the mind of this group at this point. I. Like I'm not in a group anymore so. I can't. Really tell you if they're starting to feel like that or not. You know. I was never I was never in that position I was about to say as a young player would. Myself as when I was young, I always felt like I had time like like August time to do you know what? I'm saying I got time to do, and then like I say, I, always bring up a seven because that was our year like we put it all together and that was a year and didn't happen. So starting panicking. So. You would have to ask the guys individually which year they thought that they were GonNa win in when it doesn't happen that year then you start panicking like shit maybe this this may not have you know hand. Right now all those guys play for the Yankees in they noted that the organization will do whatever they can to try to win auto free agents, auto players, and so no I think that they got time you. and. The reality is the starting rotation. Looked a lot different than what they had set out for because you thought you were going to have Severino James Paxton right behind Garrett Cole and you didn't, and obviously that changes the equation and made you have to use the bullpen differently, etc. Now, I, WanNa talk about coal for a minute see look if there's One Guy. Who acquitted himself beautifully in this Yankees. postseason. It was Garrett Cole I. Mean This Dude was everything they could've asked for he gives up one hit in this game and who knows if it's not for some weird wall overhang that Aaron judge got to familiar with maybe he doesn't even give up any hits in his five and a third innings. He. He really delivered and that you have to feel good about knowing okay. This guy is going to shove exactly the way you want him to this time of year yet. That was great to watch him be able to go out before. As that I know he wants you know what I'm saying. So it'll be good not this time next year everything rolling around you'll be fans in the stands and. Hopefully. We can have that Yankee Stadium proxy magic, and. Readiness. All the way to to we're supposed to be, which is a berated. I. What about pitching on three days Resi. What feels different like do you notice like all my arm isn't as strong I mean what? What what makes it a more difficult challenge when you're not pitching on your normal rush when you're pitching on short rest, it's not necessarily like your are being source. It's like everything else like little aches Oh you know you know you didn't get your. Your full arrest so you can't really overthrow You know watching that I felt like he was trying to give his normal effort their first ending everything was up. You know he was all kind of all over the place. Any just kinda settled in you know what I'm saying he gave us time you take a little longer than than usual and. He kinda settled into the game was able to find this delivery. That's the one thing about picking three days you have to find your delivery like. Were percent. Can you pitch at whether that? Sixty, five, percent seventy, five, percent, eighty, five percent. You know what I'm saying like you have to find that was going to make you be able to strikes in and be effective. So if it seems like you've found that right at the right time, you got to strike out and you know he kinda he kinda sail from after that I mean you have to Solo homer to tomatoes and then you know almost today what's that guy's name? You say his name well over process l. no the guy run our arousal arise arena Larussa Rhody. Almost curveball out but other than that. You know he pitched great. So yeah like you said I mean he delivered and and you know going forward that he'll be able to to to pitch in these situations you know several be able to pitch any situation. We saw what money can do to two nights ago. Yeah. Your boy came man Monte the Frazier Bryant Man, these guys these guys are in a good spot. So like I said nobody I don't think anybody in their Hispanic and not player. Wise. Anyway, you know that that's is the fans in the front office and stuff. You are the master of pitching on three days Resi and because of that even though it has a little less punch because the Yankees lost this game compared to what it would have been if the Yankees won this game. I want explore that a little bit further with you because you you did it a lot. I mean the way you did it in. Milwaukee with multiple starts down the stretch over and over again as you were just in Bistro and then we saw it in the nine playoffs as well where you did it the entire Oh nine playoffs and delivered you did it in game one and four of the AL CS is at it again in Games one and four the world series. What kind of advice did you offer Garrett Cole as he was getting ready to do it for the first time in his career as someone who did a lot and did it in big stages? You know what I didn't and I was watching the first thing that I was like man Fuck I should've called. You know what I'm saying. But I didn't he's he gates. He's he he figured it out on his own. You know what? I'm saying, I don't need to call bad like he'll call me if he did something. Yeah so I don't I don't want to bother him. I don't WanNa call him I know how he is. You know know the days before you know the day of leading up to historic. So you know I I don't want to call him but please believe I'll facetime mining when I figured out that he was making start. Well whatever you told Monte in the face time, it worked out really pitch well and game four and I was encouraged. You know see if we go through this game, there's not there's not a lot to nitpick and say, okay, this could have been done differently. This could have been done differently. We've just lost a game and. You just lost a baseball game to. All the time where we go to Tampa or we we play apple you know what I'm saying. So that's why I was so scared to play them in the playoff series because. That's the one team that I know that can fucking Peterson the series and they know it too. Yep Yet one hundred percent. It's how I felt last year too when they were playing the Astros and people like Oh we want the race I was like the race competing in the. Last. Year to we would have been counted the same. You know what I'm saying we would have been a seven game series for sure if they beat if last night got typically fucker pitches. Right move coming for the first. and. On the whole right I mean this is this is not what you are looking forward to. If you're major league baseball as far as ratings go I believe the Yankees when all is said and done at the end of this s I think they're gonNA have nine of the top ten highest rated games thus far in the playoffs they're going to have been involved in. So you know you better believe that there are going to be people who are wishing that the Yankees went as deep as possible for the sake of you know the economics of the sport, but from a pure. David Goliath baseball storyline, and there is something amazing even though it's not going to make my stomach feel-good or your Z. about the Tampa Bay rays and they're twelve dollar payroll. Taken down the big bad Yankees and Brosseau hitting the home run off Chapman after that like there's something crazy about that story how many times it I tell you that's not the way we do my career I'm not into. The raise but winning visit. I kept telling you that. The fucking raise
Why it's great to have a few extra brains around
"The. Low You sound tired I sound tired oath David you sound tired I. Think I'm I. Think I'm good. Man You sound like you've been up for hours. To Siren our just now. An hour for half hour. I'll tell you what I'm tired I save late every night for some reason I don't want I don't want the work end just WanNa keep doing stuff. I'm are you like main were from? For what I do the beginning of the day and the end of the day of the two most productive. For me the middle of the day I get distracted. Pretty quick. Kind of the middle of the day is just sitting in my car talking soon, calls and texting people because that's my office at the shop. This is no service. Well, we have the Internet but. A lot of people don't have iphones which makes life difficult. So Can't talk over the. facetime audio. So if anybody wants to call me in a daytime call me on facetime audio because what happens is, I. Meet up with people are talk to a couple visited in the like you know I called you like ten times the other day you never answered I didn't even get an emmy, get the call the unless they leave a voice mail which most people don't do anymore I don't know that they called. It doesn't show up as a recorded miscall. So. If, you don't have an iphone. What you gotTa do is going get an iphone. If you want to pull me, do not facetime me I do not like facetime. Well it's facetime audio. It's. Early. I got yeah. It's audio over the Internet and the calls usually clearer but if you don't have an iphone. I guess we'll just meet at the next hang out. We had kind of a weird thing this week where the Internet went out at at my house on. Monday. And we were trying to do a bunch of stuff like we're trying to shoot this thing with a video on TV. and. We were planning on getting that video from the Internet but then the Internet went out and so we couldn't end up shooting the rest of this project video because we needed something on the screen that we couldn't generate, and then it was like you know what we need to use this tool or Rini did look this thing up and it was crazy when you realize all the sudden how much you rely on the Internet to do. Like Everything not just to do your job in general but specifically, this and this and this, and this is all connected. And plus a we were out of we were out Internet until yesterday afternoon into Wednesday afternoon I rely on the Internet to tell me how to think. Let's get. You would have been totally bored loss. Yeah. I. Wouldn't know who to vote for. Trying to think but nothing happens. It was weird last couple days just not have an internet at the house and just trying to. figure out things that can still be productive on that cell phones because that's usually an alternative from here when up. Larry happens from time to time I have pretty terrible cell phone service here for some reason I, don't know why never been able to figure it out But. Because I'm not Outta town in town but something about my house So it was working but not well enough to do. You like to send video files back and forth to. For being stuff so Yeah it was. It was kind of a hassle. It's definitely first world problem like Boohoo, I didn't have Internet and couldn't do my Internet job for two days. Yeah. I know but it is strange when you have people working you know we're all in the office when we're like ready to do work and then we just of after go well, scope play soccer will wait a couple of days I don't know like. And then it turned out that after the guy came yesterday to fix it. I thought I just assumed that it was outside the house because nothing really changed here. And oftentimes people will mo- over some. You know cable line it's exposed somewhere in the neighborhood and whatever my internet goes out for flowers. And it turned out that there was a cable line in the ceiling of my office that I moved over. To make it extend somewhere else for something we're doing and I guess something on the inside of that line broke. Or like something 'cause it was just creating this noise within the cable network and was actually taking down the. The that couple houses near US taking down their Internet access says, my cable was creating some feedback something through the I don't know maybe he was. You know it's funny that I have a cable we buried like an in ground cable I. Took I told you that we broke it. The backhoe guy broke it, and so I spice it my buddy, my buddy. Ryan, who helps me around the house he actually spliced it but there was like about two inches of straight wire that wasn't. Twisted inside of that little plastic coaxial. Thing. That separates them an each. This is eight wires. Each one of them is twisted around each other. Like a little a cross shape extrusion. That keeps them separate. So we had him twisted together at work for a couple of days than Patrick, my electricity friend Kay by his like, yeah. The incidents at work and I'm like at work finally biggest nes- just going to give you it's going to give you enter you know intermittent he was not you got you got an so I ended up buying the couplings in the mail in the female and they did he goes yeah. Those wires needs to be twisted for the for the Internet to work. And I I honestly didn't believe him. Okay. This is true. This it's wires connected, and then when I connected it all get when we connected altogether he goes. Yes he works now I was. Just. Like two inches of the wire were like untwisted and then pigtailed together so that we could make the connection but once I cut both of those pieces of wire off property click connection and that worked.

I know I'M GONNA play. Right here. Some. Only. Ask. For. Them. Go to your home. took. Attitude there, what is the? Rapping with that attitude. I do a lot of attitude it really comes out when I'm in the studio I, think like I think like ever since I heard Janet Jackson's album in the eighties. I was like I was like I will be in that studio one day and like I've been preparing for this my whole life you know so I was just like ready I had all that built up attitude just ready to like unleash in the studio when you say Janet Jackson I'm just going through like pleasure principle I'm going through all of the songs.

Nicky fresh is my alter ego I discovered her in my garden I have been growing and I've been having an edible garden for the past six or seven years and I started putting all of my posting all of my harvests on instagram because that's what Oprah did. So I was like I do also and after my like third like I was like, Oh, it feels like I need a stage name. So I named Myself Nikki fresh. and. You know I thought that it also. Lent itself, lent the name lent itself well to music. But I also really wanted to share with the world and to the masses how like amazing and cool and exciting and spiritual gardening is and so I decided to have Nikki fresh put out a parent trap album. Now, it can't be trap music because I have too much respect for the genre. So I created my own genre which is. Yeah I like that after three likes it's time it's time to really take it to the next one hundred I should have done it after two to be honest. Very Fun though to play that role with that kind of sarcasm, isn't it? It was it was so much fun. It was fun and we got to shoot I did so I did the episodes and then at the end of each episode I, play the song but I also get to do a music video again, bringing it back to Janet the moment rhythm nation came out I was like I cannot wait to star in my own music video so like making six of them was like something I never thought in a million years whatever happened.

"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..

"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..
"facetime" Discussed on WSJ Tech News Briefing
"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..

"The natural move is to ignore any group. Facetime message. Then the people on the group FaceTime message can then see your camera. Okay. So you should be calling everybody, you know, on FaceTime hoping that they reject the call. So you can just listen in and hear what they have to say about you. Yes. Oh, by the way.

And then I was disparaging them after hanging up on them. That I would not worry yet. Because I think that there are some very specific things that no happen. But rob this is the real concern. This FaceTime thing I felt like required too many steps. What happened to me is different? I hung up the call or I thought I did. And then I was talking crap. And then I heard their voice, and I'm like. Gosh. Person. My watch had answered the call. That's different. Yeah. User error. No, it was what was your play, bro. Was healing anxious for you and embarrassed. So I answered the call because I think there was water on my sleeve, and you how some helps carbonated water not just water something wacked. Our screens it answered my the phone call, and then I could hear his voice, so I hung up and I thought about how to approach this. Right. And I think knowledged basically said, hey, I don't know what you heard, but I'm really pissed off about such and such and such. So I just owned up to it. And yeah, but that that's Sern wasn't a friend or a family a work associate was a work associate a beat of sweat had fallen from your brow on your really could have been either. But this FaceTime thing, rob. When you tell them the steps that how negative love the things where you saying. On a level of one to ten let's reacted where but I'm mean instead, and I'm like Hello. He said I'm getting a call because I turned to the person that was with and said this guy's calling me because he wants such and such. I'm so sick and tired of getting these calls from him. And the funny thing was when I called him back. He did want exactly what I had complained about. And since he had heard me gripe. He was almost embarrassed to bring it up does that make sense. 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. Well, I don't know if it was a hack. It was just a glitch in the matrix, somebody figured it out. Yeah. Tyson was this a a feature or a bug for apple man?

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.

"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..

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..
