It was said to expire last week but 19 GOP led states appealed to the higher court. The high court will here arguments in this case next year. In other news, long lines mountains of bags droopy eyed and disgusted passengers. That's the scene at some airports across the country, including here at BWI Marshall. And the biggest reason isn't the weather at this point, it's Southwest Airlines, which is to blame for about 70% of the nearly 5000 canceled flights today. If you or your loved ones are or were stranded, CBS travel editor Peter Greenberg says you have rights. The passenger Bill of rights is currently constructed by the DOT, says that you do have rights if the problem was caused with a situation that was under the control of the airline. It's a pretty safe argument that this is a problem under the control of Southwest and there should be, and I'm expecting some consequences here. The airline flight attendants union blames its employers for poor IT and processes that just don't work. Now originally, holiday flight cancellations were the work of weather that slammed much of the country, including buffalo, New York.

"Phone and then you bring your headphones under Google TV and they're just there through your Google account. All the stuff that Apple users get, they're trying to bring as much as they can to Android users. Yeah, I think the question is, you have to conceive of Android is not Samsung's Android. Right. Samsung has got a bunch of this stuff already in the Samsung world. Yeah. So are they going to be able to push it out to Samsung phones and then to Windows or is this you have a pixel in one model of a ASUS laptop? Yeah, that's an excellent question. I asked and they said that a lot of this stuff is going to require like a point update to the OS that could push it out through Google mobile services. So at least there's that. But what do you think the launch states are? Coming months. Oh boy. There's a couple coming weeks. And there's one second half of the year, I think. Early days, tutor. Yeah. Remember, I mean, Google's like the all time leader and vaporware announcements. So I won't ding them too hard. I'm going to order from a restaurant later with Google Assistant via AI. It's going to happen. It's definitely going to happen. They announced Dolby surround audio for YouTube TV on devices. But that's Google's shipping cadence has since Google has existed been like, I don't know, whenever. Yeah. And so it's actually fun. Events like CS, I think, difficult for Google. Because they have to line up. They have to walk around the kindergarten that is Google engineering and get them all together. Look, I think the stuff is great. The integrations are great. I just think fundamentally, they've got to get it onto the phones people have to make the case that the integration is valuable. Because in the Apple ecosystem, the integration is the reason you buy all the stuff. Yeah. The thing that I don't understand is why they haven't figured out how to get this to work with chrome. And I'm talking nearby share in particular. The fact that there's not a decent AirDrop alternative for Android users is wild to me. Yeah. Just write a helper app for Windows. That might be what they're doing, but they're just shipping it on HP devices first. That's hilarious. New one plus ten pro specs. So they announced Chinese availability and then they teased a picture and then they've announced specs and we're just like, they're just like, there's like 5 announcements for this phone. I still don't know what it's going to cost us to come to the U.S. at least as of this recording. They could tweet it out right now and I wouldn't be surprised. It looks good. The concern here is can one plus recover from the garbage 2021 it had with oxygen OS and just like they've had all sorts of problems. And they've definitely lost the fans, right? They like the shyness completely off of them now that they're basically integrated with oppo and they've always been there, but now they're running oxygen and they were supposed to be in the OS and it's very, very messy. And there's very little trust for them right now. Yeah. And honestly, their opportunity was this last year because Samsung had so many problems delivering. And they missed the window. Speaking of Samsung, new S 21 FE, and then there were some leaks today. The S 22. Yeah, which it should be very soon. But I don't know what's going on the same style. So the S 21 FE is it's like a low cost S 21 with like, I don't know, slightly worse cameras maybe, but like same processor, slightly worse build quality. It's a phone that should not exist if you're like if you pay attention to the phone that you buy. It's like more expensive than last times SE. So it's like, it makes sense for Samsung because they can make more profit off it, I guess, but it makes zero sense for a consumer. Go buy an S 21. Use or refurb or on discount. If the thing gets discounted to the wazoo, then maybe. But it's also weird that we know the S 22 is right on the corner. They could have just called the send the S 22 FE in order to find honestly. The S 22 of these leaks look, I don't know. The design is all over the place now. Every single one looks different. The ultra is like separating itself out because the ultra is going to have an onboard stylus we're expecting. So it has a complete. It's basically a note. Yeah. And it has the worst looking camera bumps ever. Is it a bump or is it the whole thing just thicker? It's hard to tell in this world. There's a little bit of a bump of metal around the camera lenses. So it's sort of like, I don't know iPhone 6 style bump. You know what I mean? They're probably gonna do the thing where they take the picture just a certain angle to make you think there's camera bumps there, but they're actually. So, I don't know. I actually love the S 21 design language and the way that the rail like merged into the camera bump. I thought that looked great. It seems like they're doing something similar ish with the regular S 22, but I don't know. We'll see. I don't want to completely prejudge it. I want to see it in person, but in photos, it just looks dopey. Yeah. We'll see. And we got to end with phones. It's CS. We gotta do some 5G news that's the law. So the iron loss CS is 5G type news. I'll just point to Russell's explainer. AT&T and Verizon are still not lit up their mid band 5G spec, which they spent billions of dollars on fairness because the FCC and the FA are fighting and the now that the airline flight attendants union is in the mix because there's some worries that radar radar altimeters and planes will be affected by mid band 5G usage in the mitigation strategies. It's a mess. It's a mess. CEOs of AT&T and Verizon are writing fiery letters to mayor Pete, you know? It's very good. But it's a mess and I think it's funny, like after all this time, we still don't have the 5G networks. We have lost the race, my Friends. Yeah. Well lost. In this particular bureaucratic infighting, we were talking about it for a few weeks on the show. It's very strange how things are lining up. You don't usually see the FCC like pull rank. You know? The Democrats and the Republicans we actually see are all just like shocked and horrified. Yeah. They're like, this is what we do. Frequency stuff. Verizon cancel an event or delayed an event. It'll come later. They did announce that it's coming in a couple of weeks. I think they're calling their mid C band stuff ultra wideband or something. They're like giving it the same brand new that they give to the millimeter wave stuff. So that's gonna be exciting and confusing. I might not have exactly, but there's definitely some confusion there with the way they're branding it. They also revamped all of their plans. So there's get more do more something something. It's truly limited now with a common limit anymore. It's a lot. But theoretically, you can get an unlimited plan without a data cap from Verizon. Peter, this is so stressful. It's affecting my creativity. Eli, I bet you that in order to sign up for you probably need to sign up for their new affiliate super cookie thing that they do or they track you more about. I'm a 100% certain. I bet it's called track more is what they should call it. Every time a carrier changes its pricing schemes, it's to get you sign up for something done. That's my theory. Okay. We're going to take a break. We're going to come back and do some. Literally, we haven't listed here as what better way to end your CS experience. The risk will be right back..

to get your sense of this but also from the aforementioned Sarah Nelson who heads the flight attendants union and they're all begging for some cooperation here This has been a tough a tough ride for this industry Rick Davis when you hear about this $50 billion going out in what was this payroll program here to essentially keep the industry afloat all of these CEOs American Delta Southwest United all agreed that it saved the airline industry from ruin Is this an example of government doing the right thing to help private industry Yeah it may well be a very important moment because unlike others that were hard hit by COVID the restaurant business the hotel business The airline business is a strategic and important asset to keep flying in America Without which I think our economy would unlikely recover as quickly So and there are many other uses of the airline industry to get supplies back and forth and so including vaccine The idea of letting them sort of cut them loose I think would have been a really detrimental impact Probably a good use of taxpayer dollars Would you agree with that Genie I know you're no stranger to the airline business but a lot of these lawmakers were wondering why then did we still get cancellations You heard Dan Katz they're asking why weren't staffing levels at the levels they should have been Yeah And I have to say you know it's like so many people I was personally impacted by that I know a lot of people were it's been a really difficult over the last year for people who have had to fly or have chosen to fly And I think that part of what we're seeing when we look at the airline industry is really sort of reflective of what we're seeing in a lot of industries And you were talking to Dan about this You know they had a lot of people who work for the industry decide things weren't going to get better in the next year to three So why not take that early buyout That leads to a shortage of employees and that makes it very very difficult for the airline like other industries to pivot when demand increases as it did following the vaccinations And so in that way I think it's something that once in a century pandemic a lot of industries really are challenged to try to respond to an address I agree the spending is critically important You can't let the airline industry in the United States go under certainly but also I think there have to be tough questions asked and lessons learned about what could have been done better in the industry and at government quite frankly to adjust to some of these challenges Men as the matter of what can still be done better and as we heard from the head of the flight attendants union Sarah Nelson the issue is air rage So you've got a situation where flight attendants don't always want to come back to work or certainly volunteer for extra hours because in many cases they're not safe They're not secure in the air that the number of incidents is staggering when you consider the saron Nelson who is the head of the union talked about it today in the hearings that it's not just what's happening on the plains She's begging the TSA to secure the gates to secure the airports We do need more enforcement in the airports because we are not seeing that happen and it is unclear who is responsible for that at TSA and how consistently that is happening We need to ban to go alcohol This is a major issue And the alcohol is being pushed on passengers now today more so as we are in the pandemic than before This started with to go alcohol because of pandemic serving procedures and they determined that this was a money maker and they are pushing it now in the airports And that is unacceptable because it is at the expense of our safety All of this has to do with COVID to go alcohol thing My God Rick you see this happen your board a plane and a lot of travelers likely not business travelers are drunk before they get on the fighting with the masks and all this stuff is what follows Is this simply a matter of government enforcing rules already on the books or do we need new ones You know I think I don't know enough about what the rules are governing this new to go alcohol which really does just like smack of a bad idea and we're now seeing the effects of it And I guess a lot of it is just enforcement You know after 9 11 I thought every single plane had an air marshal
