"At T Mobile Park fans will be back into the stands and our Mariners insider Shannon Dreyer is here.

Just the impact that they have and the energy that they bring to a stadium and then just, you know the idea that this is really the first kind of mass live event in Seattle.

But last year season, which was to be a developmental season, the opportunity Get the young players. We all full season in the big leagues and get their legs under them turned out to be just two months. So you know, I I don't know how much they can accelerate through this year and by the end point to be where they hope to be. It's you've got to be realistic and realized how much was lost last year.

"That are just much more stripped down and simpler in their instruction set than modern processors which have to be backwards compatible in all this other junk early results from some of those processors show that they are the fastest in the world per watt of energy put into them all important performance per watt metric. A bunch of companies are working on these microchips. In notably a bunch of these companies are ones that might not have access to arms technology or western chip manufacturing in general which include alibaba. while away. the so intel's not just facing arm into his facing kind of the next arm or the next arms plural. Which is this idea that. Just as we've had open source software and that's been a revolution and that gave this android and all this other good stuff. Why don't we open source hardware designs that anybody can turn into chips and fabric anywhere. They want you know if the performance of those chips holds up an ecosystem around them can be bill. Then that's yet another threat to intel's hegemony. So where does all this leave intel. What's the outlook for the more traditional chipmaker so the competitive landscape for intel is that they are seeing their traditional strongholds be eroded by these custom designed chips based on arm technology fabricated knob by intel. And so intel's always been dominant in. Pc's and notebooks but now you're getting more and more notebooks powered by these custom arm chips and getting more and more companies. That are willing to design and then fabricate these microchips for notebook. So that's why you can buy a mac. Forget today does not have an intel processor in it and pretty soon you can buy a chromebook that doesn't you can also buy and windows laptop. That doesn't have enough processor in it until also has always been strong in the cloud. All of their big revenue growth under pandemic has been. Because you know the more all of us are online. The more physical computers need to be in a data center somewhere that we can connect you for our zoom calls in our streaming and everything else overwhelmingly. Those are still intel based devices but there is really this explosion of arm based chips for servers. And you have a lot of startups trying to enter that space so intel's traditional market of the pc and the server is getting eaten away at both ends from the low end from the notebook from the high end from powerful servers on down that's an existential threat and the technology industry intel's response is well. We're in a lot of things these days like. We're in five g base stations because it turns out that the next generation five g networks need a ton of compute. The have a company called mobile.

I look I think we're still at such an early stage in this that everything's being tested and everything should be tested. blockchain should be tested. Cloud should be tested to can you come up with what is sort of this gold standard, which is an end to end verifiable ballot process in other words can you come up with a system that at every point from the voter to the counting of the votes by the election officials? All of it can be verified all of it can be backed up all of it can be confirmed. Can you build that system? That's the real trick this whole thing Going to find out. No system is one hundred percent foolproof and every new technology brings its own set of problems. If you're old enough right now, you're probably thinking back to the two thousand election between George Bush and Al Gore came down to a couple of hundred partially punched ballots in Florida and whether they should be counted. So the question is, can you come up with something that is encased in four feet of iron and can't be broken? It's can you come up with something? That is as good as what we have I think that's possible I. think that's really possible I. Certainly think it's worth trying.

"Critical. But this switch to a new system did not appease the critics. Park specializes in cartography and information security. She says any system that transmits votes via the Internet is still risky malware on a phone or a device can tamper with information at the phone itself. Before any information is transmitted outside the phone and then any confirmation or verification information that should be sent back to the voter by the system can be faked if the malware has control of the voters device, and while cyber election threats might conjure up images of sophisticated international adversaries using high tech methods to break into Internet Voting Systems Park says the actual threats are much more basic. A. Lot of the major problems that we're talking about are dealing with things which are quite common and the tools to build malware like this are common enough that there's a market for it. Some of these hacks could be similar to the data breaches. We hear about or are victims of ourselves that our credit card information has been compromised or our social media passwords have been unmasked. These types of systems are designed to work with these failures they're designed so that the losses are anticipated and absorbed by banks, they merchants and insurance companies. Elections are not like banking or shopping. If bad actors attack ballots park says the breach could ultimately invalidate an election. The losses aren't financial and and there's no such thing as insurance for failed democracy or put another way if we were okay with absorbing that risk and providing financial compensation for votes not being counted. Then why not be okay with people standing in front of polling places and paying voters to go away. Park is not alone a lot of big name cartographers have voiced skepticism about mobile voting and see real risks for democracy. But there are some people with pretty deep pockets who are funding these APPs and projects coming up, we speak with the funder behind all these ballot experiments and find out why he thinks our democracy is doomed without. Internet voting. That's next. Many of the mobile voting experiments in the US would not been possible without funding from Bradley Tusk. The CEO of a venture capital fund call type ventures I am also the see of strategies, which is a consulting firm CEO of Tusk Philanthropies, which is my family foundation tusk started his career as a spokesman at the New York City parks. Department then moved on to major government stints in. CHICAGO, than back to New York leading successful mayoral campaign for my Bloomberg. Then he left government and started consulting for Uber taking stock instead of salary and making millions. That's where he I realized mobile voting's potential while he was trying to get the rideshare APP legalized. So we kind of figured out that if we mobilize our customers, we could overcome the taxi. Industry, which the time was a really powerful industry politically with a lot of campaign donations a lobbyist obviously that's changed since then and I guess because of us but people who never vote in most elections they were advocating politically on our behalf and they were tweeting and they were texting and emailing, and the reason they were doing all of that is because one they liked our servers and wanted to continue to be valuable to them to. We just made it really easy right just right from the APP press these couple of buttons and it's all taken care of for you. I remember thinking wow, people could vote that way we could change everything. TUSK started saying that in the same way that Uber. Disrupted the taxi and limousine industry APP based mobile voting could potentially disrupt elections and Tusk says, the disruption here is about truly getting a majority of citizens to cast their ballots is turnout flips to fifty or sixty percent in a primary all of a sudden instead of having half the electorate be accountable to you. It's a fifth or a tenth or whatever the number is, and you're politically west power phone wallace relevant, and so they're going to want to block it but they can't say I don't want people to vote instead what they say is it's not safe. So that's how they're going to come after us. Tusks started backing mobile voting APPs a couple of years ago funding fifteen mobile voting experiments in six states including the votes, APP. That was used in West Virginia. But when an independent review Tusk paid for doubled down on the concerns by computer security experts and found new ones, tusk pulled his funding and instead he invited his biggest academic critics to join him developing a new mobile voting technology. is something that we will give away to governments all over the US maybe all over the world, even with ten million dollars from philanthropies and and put that into the tech build issued a request for information those proposals are expected in a few days. Tusk, says, he agrees that making technology as secure as possible is the key to broad implementation enhancing security is also would vote CEO Nimitz. Focused on but instead of just securing the way votes are transferred, he's working on how votes are submitted using technology. We use on our phone every day biometrics. Like some print password and facial recognition verification we use. So honey wants to build on the technology with advanced biometrics, how you will the phone. What angle you're seeing those touch screen on and all that. Obama trick signal in bad signal can be used as an additional security mechanism. So should your phone gets stolen or should somebody hacking your phone? It would be very hard for them to emulate by external. It wouldn't be able to impersonate you and submit of vote on behalf. But Mike Specter at MIT says voting still need solid verification, and that probably means using electronic hybrid ballots in that in the end relies on one of the oldest technologies around for counting votes paper. I know this is getting somewhat nerdy technical but the difference here is in the situation where you're just getting the ballot delivered to you and your printing it out and your mailing it in at least in that case, there's a human element. There's the ability for you to physically verify the ballot before it's mailed in, and that is significantly different than just sending ballot electronic ballot back through the same system. It's worth remembering that any technology will have to be scalable the mobile voting absence circulation. Now, only service small sub section of the population, but ultimately would have to be used by millions of voters. Phone paper, whatever Bradley Tusk thinks up or a combination of all these things. The goal for most of us is to enfranchise the highest number of citizens in the voting process I. Wall Street Journal Reporter, Paul Vena the best way to get there. Mean One big part of this is you look at election and you go back five, ten, twenty years whatever most.

Now today President Rodrigo detail of the Philippines announced that he plans to scrap a decades-old agreement with the United States for context just the US in the Philippines have been close allies for decades. But lately things haven't been so chummy. Details war on drugs has led to the alleged unlawful killings of tens of thousands of people and has been widely criticized as a human rights violation recently the US refused to grant a visa to a Philippine gene official. Who was the top guy in charge of that deadly campaign and today detained moves to cut back on ties with the US by announcing the end of what's it's called the Visiting Forces Agreement? It basically allows you as troops to be on Filipino soil. For things that benefit the Philippines and the Philippines did benefit quite a bit over the last few years the US provided the Philippines with five hundred fifty million dollars worth of military aid US troops helped by terrorist groups and and also assisted in recovery efforts after typhoon ravaged the country in two thousand thirteen but the US get something out of this partnership to it has to do with China and the South China Sea. The South China Sea is essentially territorial disputes central with surrounding countries like Vietnam Malaysia Brunei. And you guessed it. China and the Philippines all vying for sovereignty of the sea and various islands within it China has been exerting its influence in the area. Big Time. We're we're talking things like building outposts and putting its military on artificial islands within the disputed waters the US has challenged China's claims to the territory and it's been convenient for the US Navy to be strategically located right nearby in the Philippines to keep an eye on all the action and if things did escalate the US would be there to help the Philippines out. But now tensions between the Philippines and China have apparently softened and instead of China being a threat in my end up being the president Rebound deteriorate has definitely been giving China a lingering look and sees it as a viable regional partner and China is down to you figure out some sort of deal. China has been courting other countries in Southeast Asia by touting its economic might and being like hey. Why don't you join our cool club so the Philippines is basically telling the US to back off and today it's a one hundred and eighty day timer for the end of this military? Deal to be clear the Philippines Philippines in the US still have another agreement called the Mutual Defense Treaty which says the US will defend the Philippines in case of an attack that treaty dates back to the nineteen nineteen fifties but without the Visiting Forces Agreement. Things like getting. US troops to the Philippines for training. Exercises and sending ships and military equipment. To and from the Philippines pins will get a lot harder and could put a strain on a very long relationship.

Let's bring in Chris Lowe chief economist at efdn Financial New York Hey Chris Good Morning Good Morning Sherie so learn kudlow says. US and China are close to a deal. I feel like we've heard that so many times before. What do you think markets make of that if anything everyone at? This point is highly skeptical. We heard just yesterday that the odds of a deal were very low. Because the Chinese don't WanNa make numerical promises on on agriculture imports. Let's just say we're hopeful all right. We'll moving to something more concrete. The Commerce Department said retail sales sales increased point three percent last month which is good compared to September which had two point three percent drop is this good news? the thing is that at that point three dropping September. You pointed out was a revision and those downward revisions meant. It was a little weaker than expected. I think I think the critical thing about retail sales is that for the last two quarters consumers have pretty much carried the economy single-handed like there's just no contribution that all from business spending.

"g mobile" Discussed on Software Engineering Daily
"More frequently we wind up in environments in which the mobile clients have to deal with either spotty networks or slow networks but in terms of what the mobile clients have to do do it ends up being pretty similar they have to do some type of service discovery to find back and whether that typically uses something like the US they have to make R._B._C.'s they have to have retry policies and timeouts and those those types of things and I think the other thing that's happened over the past couple of years in particular as many applications have moved to mobile mobile first applications is that we have realized from an industry perspective that not all of the effort that were putting into making the server side system or reliable obviously fantastic but you know if at the edge proxy we have a let's say ninety nine point nine nine percent success rate or four nines. You know that's it's obviously great but if the user of the mobile application is only seeing a seventy five percent success rate. It doesn't matter how amazing our infrastructure is on that server side so we end up needing a lot of the same observability a lot of the same a lot of the same things that we need on that server side we needed on the client side so that we can make sure that we are delivering that fantastic experience to our users. There are many things that can go wrong on a mobile client device. You could have a poor cellular network. You could have a problem with the operating system. How do we differentiate between problems in the network versus problems that are just happening as a result of while I guess in when I when I say network I should say the programmatic network rather than the cellular network or something? That's going wrong in the operating system or something. That's beyond your control troll sure you know when you actually sit down and think about it. It's not really any different than than what we do on the server side in the sense that if I have a service that talks to another service in running within like some some type of virtual infrastructure. How do I know it's my application? How do I know it's the virtual machine? How how do I know of his the physical network so it's really the same the seem set of problems and I guess the quickey quick you answer which is not very satisfying that sometimes it can be very difficult to tell and all we can do from a network operation standpoint is we can try to build in the right metrics? They'll let the right analytics the right logging so that we can view the network at different layers and we can try to correlate failure and that might mean trying to look for patterns so are we seeing for example all of our users who were on the not mobile network. Are they seeing a particular problem that might be indicative of a network failure. Are we only seeing issues with users who are on that particular version of I._O._S.. Right that would indicate that maybe we have some bug. That's related to doc version of the operating system. So what it comes down to is that there's very rarely a smoking gun and I think what's much more important is to have the right infrastructure in place so that again we can gather the right stats the right logging and the right tracing the right analytics and then we can start debugging and we can start trying to understand what are the patterns that were seeing so you know when we start to talk about why would wanna run something like on Voi- Oy on the mobile client <hes> a lot of the reason we wanna do that is that it gives us a base platform with which we can actually you know emit a lot of these metrics a lot of these analytics and a lot of this logging so so that we can do the right debugging to actually start to understand where the problems are happening so there are tools for observability that are on.

These are all really really amazing opportunities that gives you this scheme ability to do things and. Frankly, the fact that the same math or algorithms that are being applied on your desktop or your mobile device is really really fantastic. Are you giving anything up by that? Because you know, you traditionally like you said, you know, old school thinking is. Doing anything on a on a device, it's not a proper quote, computer. Like, you know, a MAC book pro or windows machine or your amac.

"We're not needing to ring every ounce of performance out of a phone every time anymore. Exactly. And that's really my next thought to share is interestingly that the very next year twenty thirteen for the web really changed things, you kind of hinted out there. Richard, the iphone five was released and other types of better an Android related. Hardware as well. And what does that lead to that lead to what are we up to now two to four gigabytes of ram and phones improved from the browser front, both on desktop and mobile. All the providers start in web browser makers started improving their Java script engines and their run times, so and just better CPU's and just better hardware in general, start around twenty thirteen. So that's really, we kind of consider that an inflection point where the scale tipped over towards the web. And of course, just one year later is when the Facebook thing happened. Yeah, but you know, it's really things have come a long way. We have. So much that that has evolved from that and kind of get into that next. So the. There's been a rise of frameworks and sort of the pendulum swinging back towards an embrace of web technology. We just mentioned at Facebook while again, a few years ago, they publicly gave up on the web at seemed, at least for mobile and everything. Right. Well, what do we have the past couple years that has gained a lot of popularity react and react native built by Facebook. So I just have to chocolate that because they had made such a big stink about it and then hear the tape coming back to it. Well, if anybody can build a web app at scale, it's them. They have to everybody goes away. Yeah, they certainly got experience around all of that. Exactly. It just seems that the web technologies have gotten so much more mature now that the major browsers playing nice with each other, which wasn't always the case. That's very true. You know, one particular. Challenge was Android with different types of yet. We still have this today fragmentation, different manufacturers building different types of phones and supporting different versions of chromium, the Google Chrome web engine right rum. But a lot of that has has kind of standardized. I, as of, I think it was Android, four point four. So quite a handful of versions ago, they Android broke out the web browser into its separate kind of app that can be updated.
