Apple and Hyundai to jointly develop an electric car
"Hyundai's not sure it even wants to build a car for apple. A number of reports have indicated. That apple is partnering with hyundai. Either to work together on an apple car or for the automaker to build a car for the cupertino company now. Some inside the car maker or expressing misgivings. I say. it's gossip because they're no names. Tobacco the assertion rather a reuters report highlighted by apple insider has three anonymous exacts laying out reasons. They're not sure getting into bed. With the cupertino company. Is the best idea quoting one of the executives tech firms like google and apple. Want us to be like foxconn. Cooperation may initially help raise the brand image of hyundai or kia that is a hyundai subsidiary. But in the mid or longer term we will just provide shells for the cars and apple would do the brains quoting another exac. The hyundai motor group is concerned that the hyundai brand would become just apples contract manufacturer. Which would not help hyundai in its effort to build a more premium image with its genesis luxury sedan brand finally one exotic is quoted as saying we are agonizing over how to do it whether it is good to do it or not. We are not a company that manufacturers cars for others. it's not like working with apple would always produced great results. Apple is the boss. They do their marketing. They do their products they do. Their brand hyundai is also the boss. That does not really work.
Apple working on foldable iPhone, report says
"Well a new year might mean some new form factors for technology. Tom's guide passing along report from time when he's united daily news. That apple reportedly commissioned to prototype shells from foxconn for foldable displays. Now this is a very low reliability source also even if it's true it just means that apple commissioned some prototypes doesn't mean they're even going to do this but One would be a book like design like the surface duo and the other a more standard smartphone designed that would fold in half kinda like the motorola razor or or the the samsung foldable phone december. Thirty first apple patent filing also shows a device that folds both in and out kind of a combination of the galaxy z flip and the wall way made x. So yeah there could be something in the works. I'm sure it'll be a long time if and when we ever see. But that's interesting to
Is there going to be a foldable iPhone?
"Two iphone. Prototypes allegedly allegedly passing internal durability tests at apple. This is pretty exciting. So this is according to taiwanese website economic daily news and according to them tests of an apple designed folding hinge system for two different. Iphones were reportedly recently completed at the foxconn factory in shenzhen china. Would do you think that would mean if it's two different iphones. Do you think that would mean the high end low end of their entire next launch. No i think that would be two different sizes of probably a completely new utterly unique skill. interesting okay and that would be something that even even two years ago. I probably wouldn't have predicted. But if you look at apple's friend over the last three to five years i mean. Do you remember when the iphone was the iphone and apple silly branding where they don't call it an iphone or the iphone. They just call it iphone. You remember when that actually made sense because there was only one iphone. Well that's been dead forever like her lineup. Let's let's pull this up. Let's let's pull this up ladies and gentlemen apple. The apple dot com. Okay wait yes. It was something i was going to screen share. Okay where is it if it was the shroud thing okay. It doesn't matter the point. Is those pull up. Apple dot com so under iphone. You've got iphone. Twelve pro two different sizes iphone twelve two different sizes iphone se. I eleven iphone. Ten are and then you've got this this compare feature so you've gotta you've gotta compare feature because there's so many iphones you need a feature specifically to figure out which how much iphone is enough for you and be clear. I'm not saying that it's a terrible idea or anything to have you know of lots of iphones available for your customers. I'm just saying that. That wasn't apples. Traditional approach with the iphone. The idea was that when you bought an iphone you were getting this this curated this validated experience way. It was something to do with the model y video. I think it doesn't matter over. I'm over it so what's happening. Then is that from lake from whether it's from a developer perspective or a user perspective. The iphone is changing. Currently you can get iphones with all kinds of different sizes all kinds of different capabilities. I mean it wasn't that long ago that you could still get actually no. You can still get an iphone with a touch touch. Id home button like that is. That is a fundamentally very different experience compared to the current paradigm which is motion and excuse me motion. Just your control and using face. Id so two. Three years ago. I would have said no. There's no way that apple that if there's that if there's no way they're going to bring out like a completely separate model of folding iphone now i'm looking at it going. There's no way that they don't because apple if anything has shown themselves to be extremely conservative about forcing their users to change unless they've offered a compelling upgrade option so for example the iphone se still kicking around for people who want touch id and who want a physical button iphone. Twelve mini is something that they finally brought out to address the need free from users for a smaller one. Hannibal iphone and they're very tactical about the way that they do these things they will. They will wait three to four years which they know is a reasonable upgrade cycle for like a non enthusiast. And then they'll go okay. Have we managed to get these guys to upgrade. No all right okay all right. Let's do it. Let's do it. Let's let's continue. Let's continue to support this segment of our customer base. So there's no way that they're just going to bring in a folding iphone and replace the iphone pro. I i don't. I don't buy it but then again i would have also said there's no way they're just going to completely remove touch. Id and say okay. It has to face idea you want high end. You wanna new iphone iphone. That's it you're done. You're out so i kind of talked myself out of it. Maybe maybe the iphone folding iphone fold or whatever they end up calling definitely won't call it that because galaxy full got to come up with a new name. So maybe yeah. Maybe the i fold will replace high end but i i don't know man. It was a yeah. I'm kind of on each side because they don't normally introduce a feature this big without making a sweeping change but they have also been trending in the direction of more phones and more large feature differences between the phone. So i could see them going in either direction.
Apple plans self-driving car 'in 2024 with next-level battery technology
"And now bad poetry towards the week of christmas. Two thousand nine. The nine decided to take some time lazy and slow. The holidays would go as i wrap presence and schlep them to and fro then all of a sudden in my newsfeed there came. Talk of a mac tablet netbook thing ee ipad. It's eventual name and plans for a lazy holiday. Were shot back to my mac in the news feed. I got and now. I am having flashbacks. My friend running out of rhyme. So that is the end. I call that poem apple car. I won't say and planned to coast this week. But i had planned the coast this week. Then reuters ruined everything. Okay not really. This won't be like the ipad year still within an hour of the story. Breaking that apple plans to roll out a car by twenty twenty four. I had received four really excited emails from listeners. None of which. Saying explicitly widely. We're really excited. Writers says we should be excited about the battery. Actually hold on. Apple insider highlights reuters report. That says we shouldn't be excited about the battery. I'm working from the apple insider piece. Here's what they we know. Apple is working on a passenger car. The battery is going to be amazing. Issues related to covid nineteen may push production and the twenty twenty five and apple may change its mind about producing its own car and develop self-driving systems for other car makers instead now even there there are some nuance according to apple insider. It's still unclear. How apple would physically produce the apple car. It's likely that the company will tap a third party manufacturing partner to build out the vehicles. It honestly really sounds like who they talked to was a battery nerd. According to reuters sources according to apple insider the center of apple's or strategy is a new battery design that could radically cuts battery costs. Increase the range of the apple car. The battery will be based on a mono cell design that would allow engineers to bulk up the individual cells in the battery and free up space within a battery pack. That design would mean more active material. Which could result in a longer rate.

Without poetry i might add. Jonas offered six points in reaction. One it has long been the auto and tech hardware team's collective working assumption. That apple will one day design engineer. A car to possess is the key ingredients that we believe are critical to be successful in the future. Auto industry three from tesla perspective. We have long felt that tech players like apple working with manufacturing partners such as foxconn represent far more formidable competition than established legacy. Oem's for large tech firms want access to the auto industry due to its large title addressable market size as well as the enormous amount of time spent in cars five from our apple team they see project titan term project where similar to other markets like mobile and wearables apple can disrupt through vertical immigration and six the electric vehicle arms race is still in the early stages and the battery.

Sales numbers after apple announced plans to stop giving away earpods muddled right. There's not enough supply and people don't want them as much as we thought. Anyway that's young. mc's take her ives. That post has the head of apple's pep squad financial division seeing bigger and better for the super stoppers.

Profit Margin Tensions Souring Relationship Between Apple and Foxconn
"The information sources say that Foxconn has been telling apple that hired more workers for project than it actually has using apple owned factory equipment to make products for rivals and cutting corners, component and product testing. Some of the more than two dozen sources also said that apple has increased monitoring a foxconn employees and equipment as a result of this. The sources say that since Tim Cook took over at Apple, it's put pressure on Foxconn to reduce costs to apple this pressure on Fox cons margin is thought to. Be The reason for the corner cutting Foxconn is tried selling equipment for manufacturing and component testing to other manufacturers to little success. Reportedly, it also developed its own Polish for iphone screens rather than buying it from a Japanese company and in a specific example of corner cut foxconn allegedly decided not to disassemble rejected iphone sevens but instead opened them removed the debris and then resealed them to avoid wasting materials.

Wisconsin says Foxconn's scaled-back factory won't get tax credits
"In Wisconsin has told Foxconn Technology Group that it won't qualify for billions of dollars in state tax credits unless it strikes a new deal for a scale back factory complex. State officials have told Taiwan based Fox Constance last year that it wouldn't qualify for the tax credits without revisions to the 2017 contract, given that the scope of the envisioned factory has been reduced. President Trump Herald of the original idea As a deal, I should say, is a sign of revitalized American manufacturing. The letter sent Monday from the state to Foxconn set this new factory can't get state tax credits unless the original contract is
Latest News - Surveillance Technology Oversight Project
"Monday. This fall we're taking a look at education and technology during the pandemic. We've mostly talked about remote school today we're GonNa talk about how schools and districts are using tech to try to monitor students health in the classroom. Even before the pandemic, some schools had used things like facial recognition to monitor students. Now, they're adding qr codes, thermal cameras, and spending potentially hundreds of millions of dollars in the process Albert Foxconn is the. Executive, Director of the nonprofit surveillance technology oversight project and he is skeptical yet. It's really like a bad episode of Black Mirror. We see students being tracked with everything from Bluetooth proximity technology to WI FI based systems. We see facial recognition being used as a covid response. We also see thermal imaging and these technologies are all invasive their hall expensive. But what they don't have is evidence that they actually work in this sort of categories. Of things that you mentioned, how useful are they I mean basically, most of these technologies have about as much evidence behind them as their nose had. So let's take. For example, the wide area thermal imaging. We all know that holding an infrared thermometer close to someone can give you a fairly accurate temperature reading, but it's completely different when you're trying to use a single camera to take the temperature of everyone in a single room and. You're using facial recognition to try to find where people's faces are because when you're using these sorts of systems you have to use artificial intelligence. So even knows where the person is in the photo, and then to use that to try to identify who has a fever and none of this technology has been approved by the FDA none of it's been overseen by regulators, and all of it is being rolled out without that sort of vision. Do, we also have a sense of how much money schools and by extension tax payers in many cases are spending on. This kind of technology will according to dragonfly a military drone creator turned a covid health detection company. They claim that next year, the thermal imaging marketplace's going to double in size to five point six, billion dollars worldwide, and really we have no idea how much money has already been spent by local school boards and you individual school districts all across the country. I understand a lot of tech companies that are now selling this technology did used to work in security surveillance and just kind of switched over yet. When you sell surveillance hammers, you know every issue you see is a nail that needs even more tracking even more invasive technology. See companies that were marketing their as a way to prevent school shootings. There is no evidence that actually work but they got lots of school districts to buy these tracking systems claiming that it would help first responders deal with these heartbreaking mass shootings but as soon as kofoed was in the news and they saw that school districts were more interested in spending money on public health and on mass shootings, they suddenly started selling the exact same technology to try. To prevent the spread of covid nineteen, they are not looking for a solution I'm building tech in response they have technology and they're trying to find ways to make us believe that it's the solution to our problems, and then how about the data that's being collected by this equipment I mean, we know that kids already have fewer rights probably in school than they would elsewhere are there any laws that keep the data that's collected by this equipment from being shared? Contact tracing privacy is really in a dangerous state today. Currently, there's almost no protection against law enforcement or even ice coming in and getting this sort of contact tracing data federal law doesn't really apply most state laws don't apply, and that's why we've been fighting here in New York to pass legislation that would actually say that police can't weaponize information and make it another part of the school to prison pipeline. But unfortunately, even months after the bills were passed, we're still waiting on governor Andrew Cuomo to actually sign them into law. You know in a weird way it seems like schools are in this position. Obviously, these companies see a business opportunity schools are in this position because of in some ways, a lack of alternative right? Like have they been put in a position where they sort of have to implement some kind of health security theater because otherwise they feel that there's no alternative to make parents feel safe about sending kids back to school. My heart goes out to the school officials who are trying to pick between impossible options you have obviously. Problems with online education and you know with the restart of in person instruction, you have such a potent threat to public health, and so I think they're grasping at anything that will give them. You know some sense of safety in part because they genuinely want to keep their kids safe and in part because the amount of litigation will see after this crisis is over is really going to be unprecedented I. Mean we're going to see so many Americans who get sick some who die who then are you know rightfully enraged that is made by school officials put them at Risk Albert Foxconn is the Executive Director of the nonprofit surveillance technology oversight project.
Apple to produce millions of AirPods in Vietnam amid pandemic
"More of apple supply chain may be leaving the Middle Kingdom. Apple insider says Peggy Tron. One of the Cupertino companies manufacturing partners is looking to build in Vietnam in a pretty big way. Like one billion dollars beg. Looking to target computing communication and consumer electronics. Plan, involves three phases. The first is a relatively small nineteen, million dollar initiative followed by four, hundred, eighty, one, million, dollar second-phase and five hundred, million dollars for a third phase all set to wrap up by twenty, twenty seven. Insider says Petron is the fourth of apple's manufacturing partners to make the move to Vietnam. Foxconn. And Tag all have manufacturing setup there. It's worth noting that while the apple manufacturer will be going to be at. Phnom. Petron won't necessarily be, making, anything for apple in Vietnam. That said the piece points out that apple has been encouraging suppliers to move production out of China to avoid costly tariffs. Apple's online store went live on the subcontinent today tech crunch says for the first time in more than twenty years since apple began its operations in India, the iphone maker has started selling its products directly to consumers in the world's second largest smartphone market. I don't WANNA get too far ahead of things but moves like this. Could make apple a profitable company?
Tipping the Waiter at the TikTok Table; Howard Schultz: This is a five-star emergency
"Up on today's podcast tech and the platform that's finally got adults talking tick tock tech stocks have been on a tear salesforce Microsoft and facebook all hit record highs this week. But leading the charge apple last Friday I will lead over ten percent in one day yesterday the stock closed at an all time high and now apple is just a few percentage points away from hitting a two trillion dollars market cap the golden number to get it there four, hundred, sixty, seven dollars and seventy seven cents a share. And it looks like apple wine this milestone before it's order one stock split goes into effect at the end of this month. The other companies in the headlines? This Week tiktok beloved by teems commonly misunderstood adults, and now a chesapeake in international business and diplomacy. Here's injury Ross Mark and we've been talking TIKTOK and Microsoft and all of what's happening in Washington. Eunice Yoon reporting now that it's not just Microsoft but to other tech firms that are in talks with Tik Tok owner by dance over a possible sale in president trump said yesterday, he was ready to approve a purchase of the US operations tiktok. But then he said the only woman to do it if the government receives a lot of money in exchange listen to this. Microsoft or somebody else who was the Chinese? What what the price is the United States could should get a very large percentage of that price because we're making it possible without us you know I use the expression it's like the landlord and the tenant. And without the lease the tenant doesn't have the value what we're sort of in a certain way the lease we make it possible to have this great success, tick toxic tremendous success, but a big portion of its in this country. Sale? Yeah. Whatever the number is, would it would come from the civil on Wall Street banker problems. By the way they call that tipping the waiter, but I don't think we've ever tipped the government for transaction president trump said he told Microsoft's CEO that a very substantial portion of the price is going to have to come into the treasury of the United States because quote or making it possible for this deal to happen I was on the phone by the way with. The people involved in this transaction deal teams on all sides who heard that yesterday. Couldn't really even make. Heads or tails of what the president was saying how. Would you hey the government what would that look like could there be a formulation where ultimately you come to some kind of transactional agreement and then you announce that you're making some kind of infrastructure investment in the in the United States who you're going to create some kind of jobs I'm literally, this is the conversation that's happening inside the room among these companies. If we created some companies without yesterday we got to it. It's what did you say? I. Heard it reported yesterday when I first started reporter yesterday I thought he's just saying this stuff off the cuff he doesn't really mean it. Then I saw what he actually said I thought wow, he does mean it. I don't even know how you could possibly as somebody WHO's working on this deal come up with anything that makes any sense and Steve Ballmer Steve Balmer was with us yesterday and said as a shareholder as the top shareholder Microsoft he would love to see this deal get done at the right price. Gets an exciting proposition for Microsoft. obviously depends on the price. Price is important as well as whatever restrictions come from a government perspective but I think it's an exciting avenue for Microsoft to really increase its consumer base. I don't know how you figure out any sort of pricing right pricing when you have to then go in and add some significant number on top that you'd be paying to the US Treasury. Well, what are they? Going to happen is because this is a bit of evaluation game. And I hate to say, we're going to be using trump valuation but I think that what's going to happen is they're going to effectively. Create a higher valuation for the overall business. Then kind of create something where they can say we're giving you something and that bite dance is giving it. That's the other important part of the view at least from what I understand Turnley among these groups is that the money has to come out of China not out of a US company. So you're going to have to make it appear whatever that whatever it is that you're giving to appear that China's not getting part of that's because Peter Navarro and others don't frankly want US money. Ten twenty thirty billion forty billion dollars ending up in the hands of China for the. So there's so many sort of China. has already weighed in. On this today that China has weighed in on this today through some of the states that media where they are saying that you know the US is basically stealing us and trying to do take off with this that it's a rogue nation now at this point. So the idea that you are going to come up with something that satisfies the trump administration and at the same time satisfies the communist government in China Good luck with that I mean this is they're going to get caught in between the two the two with this because even though China may not. Necessarily, be looking for some of the same angles. It's not going to say, okay, it's okay for the US to come out looking like this and stealing our company and don't worry about it. CEO of Tiktok you know or bite dance don't worry about it. We'll live with that sort of a kind of a slap in the face. To all this stuff we're talking about it. Sorry Andrew it. It overshadows the the lead of the story right and that's that there are possibly other suitors for the US. Of tiktok, we we we talked yesterday Andrew about well, maybe media companies would be interested in this property. Now, you know the the wording here that that we use her that Eunice was reporting was other tech offense, which which makes it even more interesting and who these other tech companies. May Be an at. Are they based in the US or are they elsewhere? It would be very I. I would imagine it would be very hard for Google or Amazon or an apple etc to try to buy this company given the anti-trust pressures on them, I. Think my understanding was that the White House preferred that liked the Microsoft choice from a regulatory perspective. So it's all very interesting by the way the other piece of this is the part I. Really don't understand if you're apple today, you know we're talking about this two trillion dollars market cap that keeps going up and up and up. Given. Given. The China risks now now, maybe look they foxconn supplying hundreds of thousands of people if not more than are making these phone so maybe they can't just say to Tim. Cook. Good luck to you but I would think there would be risk if we do this to a Tiktok what kind of a backlash reciprocal. Backlash is China going to have for some US companies doing business there? That's the part I don't understand say knock built into any of the. It it's it's no different than the same conversations we were having during the depths of the trade war. Right? We had these same conversations. We push too hard if the tariffs are to punitive companies are companies like apple, the ones that are going to face the pushback or the retaliation in some way and I think it's fair to say that that that never really came back to these two tech companies I mean, she didn't say where those tech companies were based and and I wonder what the US would do that if if it was being pursued by a company, another technology company based in China but not based in the United States either how would Sylvia's see something like that and would they still threaten to turn off the the APP in the United States if it was not a US company?

Apple Launches New iPhone SE
"We weren't sure they were going to do it but they did on. Wednesday apple launched. Its latest IPHONE. Model the IPHONE S. E. by a press release much less glamorous than the flashy showcases. We've gotten used to and so is the phone the S. E. Marks Shift in Apple Strategy and our apple report trickle joins us to explain trip. Thanks for being here. They drive me all right. So tell me about the new quote unquote new features of the iphone as e you when you think about apple's product development timeline. They started these things so long ago before they're released but this is kind of a case of don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good if you think about it. This is a phone. That's that looks a lot like older phones that that has some of the technologies. We're familiar with with their older phones. For example fingerprint sensors and and not face ide- but features a low price of three ninety nine and right now. A lot of people are losing their jobs. Lower Price. Hyphen may be a good move for the company. Yeah I mean three ninety nine. It's still a lot of money like let's be clear but it's still a lot less than recent models. This isn't a pandemic move. You're saying this was already part of a longterm strategy. These phones are usually more than a year in development so the timing just happens to be coincidentally beneficial in the sense that we're in the middle of a recession and now apple has kind of a recession model phone. That just happened to be timed right for the moment. You said it has a touch. Id So we're back to the home button right. I guess yeah I guess you could say we're back in the future if you will right. It's an interesting phone and apple's done this once before they launched. What was an older looking phone with? Older technologies in two thousand sixteen. That phone was also called the IPHONE. Se and what they're able to do is they're able to take components that have been around for a while and machinery. They've been using for years them because they've had that machinery for a while. It doesn't cost them as much to make these phone so they can still have good apple profit margins. But you know not maybe you know the type of sizzle worry. We're used to from the company when it comes to technology and the feature specs. There are a couple of drawbacks with the phone. The other phone that we've been kind of waiting for from Apple. This year is the five G. This obviously is not that end of the spectrum. And it's still even with its lower tag. It's still more expensive than some of the average phones in the markets. That apple is trying to get into like India for example. So how could that have an impact on how well received? This phone is at the end of the day. Yeah absolutely I mean. I think that's going to be the big challenge for this phone. Is that Apple? Apple hopes that it can begin to build some market share and some some developing markets India. I mean that's a big growth market for the smartphone world right now. China is pretty much tapped and not part of the reason. We've seen apple's total number of shipments and its sales of smartphones in terms of unit sales decrease in order to reverse that they've gotta find a market like India and sell these funds. Problem with the is that it's still more than double the price of the average smartphone in India. So how many people are going to buy. It is to be determined. And then the other thing that it's got to contend with is they're going to be low cost five defines coming out in the months ahead from Chinese smartphone makers and the infrastructure may not be there on five G. We still don't know about that but there is a lot of marketing sizzle when you talk about five. G. It's a selling point. And so the allure of a phone. That may be speedier. That has five g technology and maybe a little bit faster might might make it harder for apple to sell these iphone. Essy's that don't have that technology and we talked about it already. Apple had some plans to release new. Iphones this fall. Do we expect those to still be on schedule? Given everything we're seeing right now with a pandemic that's like the the multi-billion world of Apple Right. It's like well. We'll products be delivered on time and that's really like everything's so uncertain right now. We do know that. Foxconn largest contract manufacturer has the production has returned to seasonal levels. But the way that apple rolls out and develop since phones is it really beginning stages and those stages began right in the middle of the corona virus outbreak and win those. Those factories really shut down in February. So it's an open question as to whether or not ABBA can make up for lost time and get these phones out in the fall in September when it usually does many analysts are already expecting the company to be at least a month late if not more all right.

Sensitive and complex supply chain the tech sector still needs to be monitored for idiosyncratic dislocations so far gradual supply apply resumption seems on track some new products like iphone se to may get delayed but existing products appear to have sufficient inventory thus our analysts worry more about demand than supply.

"Quickies here then this Super Bowl situation. I hope you're not going to participate in this yearly fraud. Yeah. That in a second. Talk about fraud here though, and you know, Foxconn, right FOX, CNN Foxconn. Well, is this a Foxconn job, of course, Foxconn is the electronics manufacturing behemoth that makes a whole lot of the apple products, the iphone the, ipads. They've got these massive Chinese factories and campuses that are like cities with tens of thousands of workers. You know, putting together these millions of devices and remember, President Trump and the governor Scott Walker, the former Wisconsin governor, this was a big deal at Foxconn was gonna create thirteen thousand jobs, and they were going to build this this massive facility and spend billions of dollars building a manufacturing facility in Wisconsin. Well is this turning into a Foxconn job? Now, the word out today is that this planned ten billion dollar manufacturing campus. Well, not so much. Now, it's going to be maybe a research unit research hub and not this big huge manufacturing facility, providing a whole lot of blue collar jobs. They say they're committed to still creating a whole bunch of jobs, but. This doesn't sound like anywhere near the, you know, the big PR, the hoop de doo, and the hoop and everything that had been promised. Yeah. So they were supposed to have an employment target of hiring. I think two hundred and sixty were promised to be hired in twenty eighteen as to ramp things up and they hired. Fewer than that. But now, it doesn't look any of these goals are going to be met. So again is this is this was I read earlier, I I did some reading earlier that Foxconn has a history also of making promises that they don't deliver. And now they're saying that this electron IX factory to build screens to build actual display screens that we have no place in the US for this. So that wasn't there. Tune a couple of years ago was it. This a FOX job. Is the question you all kinds of tax credits tax incentives. All I mean. That just pisses me off. Oh, speaking of apple by the way. I thought this was interesting. I've made it clear I don't use an apple iphone, I use an Android device. I do have an apple ipad. I'm a PC user. I've got several laptops that a PC's not the max. But I do have an ipad that I use. You know, what I travel I'll use that for for surfing and doing prep and sending emails and I do use an ipad. When I'm in the northern studio, I use an ipad and FaceTime to connect and have visual connection with my Tampa crew and Tampa master control. So I do have an apple device, but just one actually I have to because I have an ipod I've, you know, older generation ipod, which I still use. When I ski for instance, I'll crank that thing up for hours at a time. But of course, the story came out regarding apple and the security flaw in FaceTime group chat, which they shut down to fix apparently is coming sometime this week. Whereas you could dial somebody up they wouldn't answer. But you could still listen in. And it turns out a fourteen year old kid figured this out and tried to warn apple for about a week. A fourteen year old kid in Arizona. And his mother tried to contact and worn apple for over a week apparently or battle week say, hey, there's a flaw. Michelle Thompson, fourteen year old son grant, they discovered this problem back on January twentieth. And they reported it to the company's Wall Street Journal. I report that short of smoke signals that was trying every method that someone could use to get a hold of somebody in apple said, the mother Michelle Thompson. They call the Email the facts. Social media. This kid deserves credit. He tried to inform apple for a week about this problem. I mean, apple said this kid a gift card or something said them on a MAC, book pro or something.
