European Scientists Create First Light-Up Tattoos For You and Your Avocado

"A team of scientists in europe have created what they say is the first light emitting tattoo using oh led based technology which is like the kind used in newer televisions and smartphones especially the folding kind. And well of course. This sounds totally awesome. If a bit frightening the team mostly propose practical uses like alerting an athlete when they're dehydrated or indicating when someone should get out of the sun to avoid getting a sunburn and tattoos for medical use are not unprecedented. I know a couple of people who have replaced their medical bracelets for conditions like diabetes with permanent tattoos on their wrists and radiation therapy often tattoos. Small black on cancer patients skin to use as reference marks for the machines and a handful of in the us tattooed kids with their blood types. During the cold war thinking it could facilitate blood transfusions in the case of a nuclear attack. And that's a real thing that happened. I'll put a link in the show notes if you want to read more about it and sort of grim as that sounds to our modern ears. There are still proposals around to people including children with their medical information. A team from rice university. A couple years ago developed fluorescent quantum dot tattoos that would only be visible through a custom smartphone app. At which time they would show a person's vaccination history something particularly crucial in hard hit rural areas. Where people sometimes don't have paper or digital vaccination records then no one's actually a pretty good idea even if it sounds a little big brother that the offset and unfortunately because of that. It's gotten pulled into a lot of covid nineteen vaccine conspiracy theories even though it's a tattoo not in any way an implant a microchip and not in any way related to the covid nineteen vaccines. It's being cited by conspiracy theorists as evidence that the covid nineteen vaccines are implanting tracking microchips into people. It doesn't help that. The original study was proposed by the bill and melinda gates foundation a lot of conspiracy theorists love to say that bill gates engineered the corona virus. Or something. I only bring all of that up in case you hear about it in relation to this vaccine history. Quantum dot tattoo study. So now you can. Debunk anyone spouting that false claim but anyways back to the light up. Oled tattoos in addition to some practical wellness related uses. The team also expects that they could be used for fashion purposes. Like having a light up tattoo or even fingernails and they could even go beyond humans to be used on produce. The tattoos could go on packaging or on the fruit or vegetable itself to identify when it's gone bad now. If you're imagining how impractical it would be to take a tattoo gun to a tomato. I should clarify that. These tattoos are applied more like a temporary tattoo is quoting university. College london the oled's are fabricated onto temporary tattoo paper and transferred to a new surface by being pressed onto it and dab with water and quotes now as gizmodo notes. Quote the idea of personally augmenting. One skin with glowing. Art isn't new either. But previously this has involved bio hackers implanting technologies like led's beneath the skin and the results don't have much practical use besides attention grabbing or inviting questions about why someone would do that to themselves. This new approach to light emitting. Tattoos is easier to apply more practical and temporary without requiring surgery to have it removed and quotes. So how does this one work well. The flexibility of the oled display is key so that it can move and bend along with the human or fruit skin beyond that quoting again from gizmodo. The electronics of the light emitting tattoos made from an extremely thin layer of electro luminescent polymer that glows when a charges applied measure in at just two point three micrometres thick which according to the researchers is about one third the diameter. A red blood cell. The polymer layer is then sandwiched between a pair of electrodes and sits atop insulating layer which is bonded to temporary tattoo paper printing process. That isn't prohibitively expensive. The tattoos can be easily washed off when no longer needed or wanted using soap and water with a current applied the led tattoos in their current form simply glue green but eventually could produce any color using the same rgb approach that oled screens. Us and quote won't professor franken says saline lead author on the study notes that they've demonstrated a proof of concept that d- tattoos can be made cheaply and at scale. There's still a number of kinks to work out. Like normal temporary tattoos these ones degrade pretty quickly especially when more on a moving human and they still need figure out how to integrate them with a battery or super capacitor in the lab. They're currently hooked up to an external power source so oily tattoos might not become into the public too quickly but the technology is there and it will probably happen before

Scientists establish freaky two-way communications with lucid dreamers

"Scientists have breached a whole new level of the dreamworld. They've managed to communicate with people while they're dreaming and not just the one way communication. You may have with someone who is sleep talking. But two way communication the awake scientists would ask these sleeping subjects questions and they were able to respond without waking up. These results were published last week in the journal. Current biology and already aired in a segment on pbs. And one thing giving this particular paper a lot of credence is that it's actually the work of four different teams from four different countries who initially conducted independent studies before finding out about each other and joining forces in total. They brought together thirty six volunteers across fifty seven experiments and trained people with varying amounts of success on lucid dreaming. That is dreaming where you're aware of dreaming. That's cool thing that some people train themselves to do either for fun or with various conditions. Some of the volunteers already had experience with lucid dreaming. But not all of them quoting vice. The researchers verified that participants had entered rim sleep by placing electrodes next to their eyes on their scalps and on their chins by measuring activities such as brainwaves eyeball movements. Sleep experts can determine if a person has entered this deep sleep states. Some of the participants were then asked to confirm that they were in a dream with a pre-arranged ocular response in which they moved. There is in a specific left. Right pattern these icicles. Along with facial contortions were used as a means of communication during the sleep sessions for instance the researchers asked a nineteen year old american participant to subtract six from eight while he was in a lucid dream and he correctly signaled the answer to with two movements from left to right and asked again. He repeated the correct answer. Roughly eighteen percent of the trials resulted in this level of clear and accurate communication from the dreamer. Seventeen percent produced indecipherable answers. Three percent ended with incorrect responses and sixty percent did not provoke a response at all and quotes and from gizmodo quote win. The volunteers were asked about their experiences. Some reported being able to remember the pre dream instructions. They had received an attempted to carry them out. Some also reported hearing the questions they got while in the dream although not always in the same ways and some reported hearing words that clearly felt like they were coming from outside their current reality while others said it felt like they were hearing them through radio or other form of communication within the dream but there are still times when people couldn't clearly recall what had happened. Were win the questions. They said they received in the dream. Didn't match the questions. They had actually gotten and quotes is also worth noting. It was a pretty small sample size. But one of the study's authors can polar points out that the fact that those results came from multiple different methods employed by multiple teams around the world indicates. It's not an isolated phenomenon calling this interactive dreaming polar says they're working on expanding in a few ways they want to be able to run the experiments in people's homes where subjects would be more comfortable and maybe using existing smartphone app that teaches people how to lucid dream. All the main aim of the research is simply understanding the mysteries of dreaming a bit more. They're also some potential practical applications.

Top Secret Apple Device Leaks

"You know will. The has a reputation for being a very secretive company. A company that when they're working on a project anybody who's involved with that project has to keep that thing under wraps and in a even create teams within teams that know a certain amount of information that the greater team doesn't even know about because well for good reason. I guess historically they've done a pretty good job of keeping things under wraps we new projects. That's kind of changed recently as the most of the leaks that we see emerging aren't from hq is from the supply chain somewhere further down the road once they actually start to make the thing but we talk recently. About how apple's considering making a car at least the rumors are out there about that and you start to realize man you gotta protect this massive project from new world eyeballs for for like five years and so that's a difficult task to keep it under wraps now once they start fabricating the thing you can expect probably leaks to emerge but anyway historically apple has had that reputation I remember the situation where an iphone was left in a bar and gizmodo found it. You remember that story and then federal agents showed up the guy who plays he's like. Oh this is scott very intense So there's all kinds of stories like that particularly. When steve jobs was around he was not messing around with the secretive with the secrecy stuff. Anyway today we have a prototype which is sort of showcasing apples. Ultra security program. This is actually an apple. watch prototype. That looks nothing like an apple. Watch and if you scroll down here you'll see it. Looks kind of like an ipod. Actually and there's a video made. Somebody actually got their hands on it. It does not have the digital crown interface. It's obviously an early prototype and there's all kinds of rules and restrictions on it about what to do with it. If you find it who hands it should be in confidential property etc. Now this would be part of the apple watch development early version and in the absence of the digital crown you did kind of interact with it like an ipod with buttons. There's a whole giant home button on the front of it now. It got me thinking you know. I was watching. I was watching that mandalorian show. And and this is not a spoiler. But there's a there's a drone in it and a drone is always is always like they thing he loves to say is if i get captured i got a self destruct became captured. And that's what this box says about this if you receive this. Don't you dare do anything. This is only intended for so it kind of rang. A bell for me there that If found destroy it doesn't say that specifically but like if this prototype must be returned when recalled or and uh when your or configuration which presumably means production validation testing in line with language seen another apple development hardware when. You're when you're not configuration or work. Your validation testing runs out in return. That's the idea. That's the disclaimer. That's the warning so super exclusive. I don't know what one these will be worth Obviously for a collector or something like that. It could be interesting. I know i've seen some prototypes of other apple products in the past. Go to auction Although i don't know that might be difficult. When is not really an official thing that you didn't get through an official means. Don't you think apple will want to hunt this down. I don't know maybe. Is it old enough. Now that they don't really care because you will see on ebay super old tester ipods. Show up here and there for example and they get sold. Yeah so. I don't know maybe there's a certain time limit to it's like look. Some of this stuff is going to get out eventually and it's no longer a project. Were trying to necessarily keep secretive so they let it go that little lisa icon by the way is a is a kind of omar to the to steve jobs daughter lisa and the name of the original says they still use it in their modern products for testing is kind of interesting as well

BWDs Origin Stories: Inventor Earl Tupper Kept Failing. Until He Dreamed up Tupperware

"Tupperware changed plastic formulation itself, making it translucent and getting rid of the smell in the Greece. But consumers didn't trust the confusing BURP. Products wouldn't make their food stink without a way to know for sure they weren't grabbing them off store shelves. But as Gizmodo sway be noted, tupper notice that some of his products were selling unbeknownst to him a direct sales company called Stanley home was holding parties where women would sell the Tupperware to other women at those parties. Dubious shoppers could smell the new inventions which were now free of the Petroleum Byproduct Odor plastics past the party strategy was working hint spades.

Swipe right for safety features (and give up more data)

"Was probably a busy weekend on tinder. What with Valentine's Day and all hopefully it was also a safe weekend on tender. The company recently introduced a panic button feature for the APP to let users report if they feel unsafe on a date and a check in feature to let your friends know where you are when you're out with but as always there is a catch you have to share your location constantly to use the new features marketplace's media reporter. Jasmin Garcia told me. These changes are happening partly because maybe tinder itself isn't a very good date. I think it's a growing public awareness. I think initially there was like this period of being in love with the technology. And it's so much fun and I think the mood has completely shifted. I also think for women on these ads feels like misogyny to point all just within tech space and so I think yeah. There's definitely been more stories and exposes about how on the free services offered by the match group. You know you can have record of of being a sexual Predator sexual offender and still have an account and I think that these APPs and these companies are responding to that growing awareness and concern right. Is this enough though? I mean it's one thing to say we will allow you to call the police who will hopefully get there in time but does that remove the responsibility of these platforms to maybe do better screening. Look on the one hand what you have with all of these free APPs and quote unquote free Tack companies is that we're really coming to a realization as a society that there is no such thing as a free service. There are so many costs whether it's your privacy your data or also your safety on the other hand match group which owns tinder last quarter. They reported a total revenue of five hundred. Forty one million dollars. Tender is the top grossing non game APP OF LAST YEAR. And so there is an interesting question of. Can you invest some more? In safety if you're pocketing and that kind of money but it's interesting because this APP then introduces its own kind of potential security risk right. Which is that in order to use it. You have to share your location data in real time. Which feels like a little bit of a devil's bargain up to say the least. Yes no completely. There's no such thing as a free out. There's no such thing as a free tack service you pay in your data and your privacy. You know and the magazine Gizmodo did find earlier. That a handful of major names intact. Ads Grab the details that you give this APP it. It does lead to the question though. Why do the users have to shoulder? The cost of safety and not the extremely lucrative company Jasmine guards reports on social media and Internet culture for marketplace

"Of the cost zero nightstand. Shame or clutter booknotes so moving onto the Z. Flip I'm I'm actually going to talk about this in the show today but I was surprised by the the people that got hands on. Last night I was surprised by how uniformly they all were surprised by. They were impressed. At least again. You know you only get to play with it for a few minutes or whatever to a person everyone was talking about like how solid it felt like how does that. Surprise you at all It doesn't it doesn't I think after seeing the fold people got even more wary about the concept than ideal foldable Obviously you know Taoism Beta. There was only so much you can get right the absolute first time you try it and I think it's really impressive to see how far Santana's come with Z. Flint especially as pertains to that ultra thin glass screen and I think that is like the real thing that's like. Oh man this I don't feel like there's any trade office still feels sturdy. Still feels like I'm using a solid well-made phone instead of dealing with that you know delicate plastic film that the original Ghazi Fault had and unlike You know the razor which everyone is reviewing right now like the. The razor seemed to be like underpowered and and SPEC compromised like almost everywhere which you know three or four months ago people were still willing to forgive because it was an experiment in right in full details. But you know this is. There's a snapdragon eight fifty five plus bytes of Ram two hundred fifty six billion. That's a decent that those are decent specs. Specs are great. And it's like if you don't care about four G. like you don't have to worry about that and to your point. I absolutely think that the motor razor is like the biggest loser in all of this because you know because of the timing like the razor had like a one month to month window where it was like following up the fold. It was like you know bringing back all these great nostalgic feelings about had three original razors back in the day. I broke a couple last one survive. And it's like Oh man it looks the part it feels the part has like the volks. The right design language. You look at the new racers like Oh yeah. That's absolutely eraser in. It's something that people get warm and fuzzy about but then when you look at the Z. Flip it's like. Oh Wow this is what this is a device that makes you excited about the idea foldable. 's It it combines everything you love about modern phones and very few compromises except maybe not waterproof water resistant. Well it is the you know. This is all relative but it's the least expensive foldable phone yet. That totally totally helps to just like said that window were like you know. The razor just went on sale last week and now this is going on sale this Friday and it's like anyone who had a preorder on on the razor like if you're not running in China cancel that now it's like I don't know what you're doing given what we were just talking about with five G. Five G. on the flip not a not a problem. You think not a deal breaker no like I said it's like I still think consumers are super invested in five g. So if you buy Z. Flint now in hold onto in a couple of years. You'll be whatever is out in a year and a half or two years will be. That'd be the five. G. Phone that you really really want and on top of that. I think a lot of the people who are GONNA buy Z. Flip they're the type of people who upgrade their phone every year and I think in the next twelve months. You're not going to really miss not having to sport Two things real quick. I gave short shrift to yesterday in the mad dash to to get the show out It has that When you close it up it has that tiny little one inch screen on the outside Which actually now that. I went back and looked at you. Know some of the live blogs and stuff like I forgot that that that actually had more utility than I thought like you can not only get notifications take calls from but even like a selfie uses it to compose sell fees I. I'm kind of impressed with how much functionality Samsung into like a tiny one point one inch screen. And if you look at the razor or the razor actually has a much better bigger exterior screen. But it actually doesn't have. That screen is much bigger but doesn't have as much functionality as you expect whereas Samsung kind of you know under promised over delivered on. It's like tiny screen so it's really interesting to see that I mean you're still not going to be doing much besides check occasions and composing selfies. But it's like pretty handy. Yeah it's it. It does what you needed to do. Essentially the other thing the other thing was And I I I feel like people are kind of thinking of this as well. It's an interesting gimmick and I'm not suggesting that this would transform how I would use a phone but I think that ability to have it stay open at any angle like. I'm kind of more psyched about that than I thought. I'd because I can think of a lot of use cases for that and low. Yeah like that's something that I think that people may be are sleeping on. Oh totally I actually think. That is probably the most underrated feature of the entire Z. Flip and it's like just for simple stuff it's like. How many times have you been out hanging out your friends? And he want to take a group picture but no-one no-one has a tripod. So you end up trying to like prop your phone up against like someone's book or like a back and it's like no you just put the flip down on like a picnic table opening up to ninety degrees there you go. You have like a mini Tripod. Set up if you're trying to be vlogger or something and like you don't WanNa carry a big around okay. I automatically have the saying that turns into like a little mini setup. And then there's like you know. Google is working with Santung to add value to apps like duo and Youtube. So that you can scroll comments it and it's like I think that's one of the like most Most eye-opening things about foldable. Is that like because of people are not playing with design of phones in how you build them. Yeah you're seeing a lot of innovation in what these little improvements can have on how you actually use the phone on a day-to-day basis right again. It's it's always if you're early or too early or whatever but people forget about the fact that like things that you're like well I have no utility for that when you first hear about it but then when you're using it you finally you till unless it can be as simple as if you've got small kids. I am so tired of Papa being the frigging cinematographer every time we talk to the grandparents like so if I can just sit down and like have them talk and I can walk away. That's fantastic right. It's almost like it's like a mini. Gopro or you just set on a table and then you forget about it but it's sitting there capturing all the stuff and no one's really thinking about it because it's just you know sitting on a table. Yeah or you leave it open next to your computer with twitter on streaming by or whatever totally yet and gus things. There's so many cases in being able to make it. Make it sturdy enough for people get excited about it and get it in their hands. It's like oh now we're really seeing how the foldable technology is impacting. The way people use phones last thing you mentioned like the integration with a duo and life captured with Google Mike. What do you make of Samsung really wrapping themselves in Google and heck I mean and wrap themselves and Microsoft Net flicks too? I'm assuming this is basically you know if if apple is going all in on on services and features and stuff like they have to be like. Look we're still here and you can. You can do all that stuff and we're doing it with the best people. I guess Yet totally I. It's Samsung has always really worked to make partnerships with a lot of the big players and especially more recently with the Unveil of Samsung Us One last year when you I two point oh now they're really trying to get better about software in how their phone you know plays nicely in the android ecosystem because obviously Samson's their bread and butter is They do great hardware. They do great design and now they're software side is starting to catch up as opposed to like no google. Their main thing is like they do amazing software in the design of their phone is like you know not quite as exciting as you might expect. So it's kind of interesting shift to see. Samsung put more effort in attention to the way the software works on their phones by bringing in partnerships with Mike soft people and others so all things considered fairly solid event for Samsung and their prospects this year. Yeah you know. The phones have great specs and didn't even mentioned you know all the phones have twelve gigabits of Tokyo Butts Aram which is kind of nutty in a world where most laptops have a And Samsung is really kinda goose the hardware with the s twenty one. You know the really one concern is the price it's like you know. Are People going to balk at that price or are they going to be like you know? Hundred Twenty Hurt Stream Vijay support. That's enough for me to upgrade and they feel good or feel okay about paying thousand dollars for anything you want to plug. Sam Disc is Moto. I guess yeah just for more coverage you know always check back with Gizmodo. We'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING Z. Flip in relatively soon. So we'll have that review up as soon as possible and I'll read it on here. Thank you SAM. Thank you for having me.

"Know what I think we should do. Let's start with the s twenty lineup. I probably for all the pizzazz of foldable phones. That's the big news anyway. Right Samsung made a big deal about you. Know the jump from twenty from ten to twenty and how that was in the naming and how that was meant to signal like a generational leap in terms of their flagship devices. What's your take on that? Is this truly a big leap forward or just ITERATIVE I I think it's a little bit of both because I mean if you look at last year you saw that one plus and Google and some other of makers they brought ninety hurts displays to their phones in that seems really weird because especially because. Samsung was the manufacturer of who made the panels that were in those phones so intergenerational I think Sampson absolutely had to add hundred twenty hertz displays like that was that was a huge feature in terms of you know really jumping from the S. ten to twenty At on the other side then you have like the design aspect and for the most part you know the s twenty looks a lot like the S. ten yeah. They moved the PUNCHBOWL selfie cameras in the middle. But you know this is a very similar design you know the change the colors and aside from you know that boxy camera module on back. I could see how a lot of people might get the Tuten fused. Actually you got hands on with s twenties right. Okay well let's come back to that. 'cause I WANNA ask you about that but Maybe we should start also by like breaking it down so eventually across the entire lineup. All the device all of the three s twenty s Get the same screen at the same size screen but the same thing hundred twentieth screen right and then so let's start with with twenty you get. What is the IT starts? It's a six point. Seven inch screen. they all have five g. but the the s twenty regular has a lower end five chip right So that's twenty has a six point two inch on the discreet. does have five G. support however it only has sub six gigahertz five G. support and so basically that only really works on T. of five G. Which is based around subjects? However it's really confusing.

Tupperware, the Legend of Leftovers, Pops Up a Holiday Store

"Brown. And this is business worse daily. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. There are a few things that most of US associate with this special day. Turkey stuffing cranberry sauce football and as always leftovers and so on this holiday we turn our attention to one of the legends of leftovers. Yes tupperware last week. The seventy three year old company popped up what it's calling in an immersive store in New York City top Soho as it's called will only exist through December twenty seconds. So now's your time. The store blazing with bright red. Green yellow and blue walls is designed to catch the eye of photographers like most pop ups. It's intended as much for social media as it is for human even traffic it features Tupperware as art products. The company describes as museum honored and award winning the first of its kind. The store MARQUESA rotter rotter fundamental shift for tupperware sales have been flagging and shareholders have been pushing tupperware to Will join the twenty first century not long ago. The idea of disrupting its longstanding. Sales strategy the ICONIC TUPPERWARE party would have been unthinkable but with pressure to increase sales. The company is bowed to the inevitable and finally made some of its products accessible directly to the public with a brand new website the already inherent in the pop up store. Is that shortly after world. World War Two company founder. Earl tupper started out trying to sell his newfangled plastic conventions in stores only to discover that virtually no one was buying at the time in plastic was not the plastic. We know today according to Gizmodo writer Rachel Swain used it. I for wartime products like gas masks and military lamps. It was greasy and smelly hardly the kind of thing you'd use to store your. Leftover lasagne tupper changed the plastic formulation itself making it translucent. And getting rid the smell and the grease but consumers didn't trust that the confusing BURP products wouldn't make their food stink anyway without a way to know for sure or they weren't grabbing them off store shelves but as Gizmodo Sway be noted Tupper notice that some of his products were selling unbeknownst to him Direct sales sales company called Stanley home was holding parties where women would sell the Tupperware to other women at those parties dubious.

Tupperware parties have continued to be sacrosanct until now under the guidance of Tupperware's first vice president of global brand engagement ship wrangled Tupperware is now building out ECOMMERCE access for customers in one hundred countries once. That's done and you can actually order that lunchbox online no matter where you are. TUPPERWARE will launch a global ad campaign.

They're not designed to last for years like Tupperware but the price points are low enough to inspire you to easily throw them into your grocery card and then there's another kind of competitor anyone who sells glass containers seen as far more areco friendly than plastic to combat the latter problem Tupperware as touting the benefits of Reuse in its now EPA free containers. Of course despite it's urgent overhaul Tupperware isn't abandoning the people who kept it going for the last seven decades independent Tupperware reps online.

Snap announces Spectacles 3 with an updated design and a second HD camera

"Came out with its third iteration of glasses and just seems is like snap just can't give up its obsession with techy camera glasses as because after losing a boatload of money trying and failing out first one later following up with the second mile to little fanfare today snap announced spectacles three which are somehow uglier than ever and come with a series price. Take at least according to the opinion of the writer at gizmodo now sporting a weird blend in hipster. She mixed with unprovoked nerd culture. Third spectacles are certainly unique looking. We'll say that and by adding a second built in camera to its glasses snap is doubling down on the spectacles recording features that let users capture new three d. snaps that can be customized with gimmicky a are stickers and effects snap says that the cameras on each side of its third urgen spectacles can record h._d. Video at sixty f- p._s. Which can then be transferred to your phone via bluetooth or wifi for further editing before being uploaded to snapchat chat the spectacles deal cameras make it possible to record three d. stereoscopic footage featuring a subtle depth affect so you kinda like that while quad bikes on a spectacles capture what snap claims significantly better audio now the new spectacle <unk> rule shoots come in at around sixteen forty two square while videos are recorded at twelve sixteen by twelve sixteen glasses come with four gigs of onboard storage and feature a battery that can capture seventy ten and second clips or up to two hundred photos on a single charge if you want the full three d experience snap is including a set of cardboard goggles at work with your phone screen so that you can an experienced your footage in full three d so in terms of colors it will be available in two carbon black in rose gold like hugh called mineral carol and just like previous models spectacles three come with included charging case that holds four charges worth of juice along with a full grain leather exterior for a slightly more more luxurious feel and here. They are like some weird futuristically. I swear i've seen these glasses before. I swear i in like some james bond movie or something i don't know let me know down in the comments on chat what you guys think however however unlike the spectacles through to the third gen glasses aren't water resistant and ask for price. It is three hundred eighty u._s. rest. It's a pushes the third glenn jen. I can't talk tell him tired. Glasses added a stupid fund category and transformed into something that series series and possibly stupid investment but at least according to gizmodo no kinda interested in if it can do its job while i don't see why not just looks the bit bulky but yeah if you're hardcore snapchat addict and are looking for more ways to spice up your feed you can preorder the spectacles three now before they officially go on sale sometime later this fall

"And Facebook, Google and your regular big tech suspects are in the crosshairs of new UK policy to control tech giant's how big a deal is this and how will your social media and search sensibilities be impacted finding out after these tech headlines. Amazon wants you to use Alexa to track healthcare, if you wouldn't mind the artificial intelligence assistant of the masses is ready to track consumers prescriptions and relay personal health information as the company bids to insert smart speakers into Everyday Health care at least five companies including insurer.

Digital media James span feller, the former chief executive of Forbes dot com will become the CEO of geo media Inc. A new company created from the assets. Gizmodo media group includes sites such as Gizmodo the onion, jazz, Abell, deadspin and life hacker. So the question you've been asking for months, maybe years what's been lacking? At Google cloud hint. It's a species you'll find in the mirror. It's humans humans, but the new head of Google's cloud business. Thomas Curien aims to end this Google shortcoming. He says to few people cater to enterprise customers. So he simplified contracts for different types of businesses that's opposed to a one size fits all pricing. And he's also moved to move more predictable pricing. And according to the journal, clawing bigger piece of the cloud is crucial for Google to diversify beyond online advertising coming up. London's proposal for a new social media regulator is one of the broadest yet in a larger movement by countries to assert control over tech giant's breaking it all down after this support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Deloitte, a global leader in digital transformation helping clients apply. Technologies like cloud an AI. To their unique business challenges Deloitte, Kat com slash look again. The UK government plans to create a new regulatory body to force the removal of harmful content from the internet one of the most far-reaching legislative proposals from a host of countries. Trying to put a tighter leash on global tech companies. The Wall Street Journal's Kim Gittleson gets more on the story from parmi Olson in our London bureau said talk to me a little bit about your story. What is it that the UK government is proposing and how different is it from other regulations we've seen it's definitely quite bold compared to other regulations that have come out that are similar to this right now. This is just a policy proposal that the government has announced essentially, they are saying that big technology companies hosts social media sites, I Facebook, an alphabet Google should take what they call reasonable and proportionate action on all sorts of potentially harmful content that ends up on their sites. Whether that's. Violent content cyber bullying or disinformation. What we still don't know is actually how they're going to enforce that. How are they going to basically measure success? Like, how do they know? For example, how many videos extremists videos Facebook is taken down in one day. They're kind of relying on Facebook to tell them that information because the only people in the world that no that is Facebook. I mean, how does this compare to other regulations say put on place by these companies? I know it's a new era, and there aren't that many in place? But does this go one step further? We'll there definitely moves afoot from what we've heard in other parts of the world, Germany, France. There seems to be a lot happening in Europe in terms of trying to regulate big tech more. So than in the US, which is kind of ironic, you kind of look to disallow Convalle e is the place where the innovation happens. And then Europe is where they keep it all in check you could say from what we've seen. It does seem like this is. Is the kind of most rigorous and robust attempt actually putting in paper ideas and rules for regulating Toco technology companies in this way, again, it's not to do with data privacy, but just on the content like harmful content. How do you regulate that? And this seems to be the most substantial set of rules that we've seen so far, and why is the British government doing this right now? Surely there other things that British politicians might be paying attention to Brexit comes to mind, why this time in April are they paying attention to this issue. Well, there's been a consultation going for quite some time from what I've heard from speaking to people in the tech industry here for months and months is actually surprisingly enough people who work in the tech industry here. Really like what's happening? They're very impressed with the way the government has the civil service has gone about actually asking questions to the tech industry. I'm sure the same will not be said in Silicon Valley. I'm sure Facebook and Google Twitter. The folks are scratching their heads at this like how on earth are they going to pull this off? What has been the response from Silicon Valley? What is in the fonts from Facebook alphabets Google? It's just been very polite. I don't think anyone really from either of those companies want to go on the record and say, this is like really you expect politicians to regulate something as complicated, as you know, content moderation, which is not only done by humans, and we know tens of thousands of people around the world are helping moderate harmful content, but super complex metrics are used for that artificial intelligence machine learning tools. I mean, it's extremely complicated. I'm would not surprise me. If these companies behind the scenes are actually extremely skeptical of what the government is trying to do. And and don't think particularly highly of it in their comments to us though. They're extremely polite about it. So what happens next the UK is introduced this idea. Where does it go from here? Well, we've been told that they're working on turning it into legislation. So that's going to be quite a few number of weeks out. I'm sure probably months, and then they'll table that. And in the meantime, the minister at least one of the ministers from the what we call the department for culture, media and sport here who was behind this proposal. Jeremy Wright has said that he will be visiting the United States later this year he wants to showcase his proposals. And I suppose hope that the US will use it as a template and other countries as well. How realistic do you think that is will other countries pay attention to this? Well, I think it'd be easy to just dismiss it and say why would anyone pay attention to this? But there's a lot of momentum around regulating or answering the problem of harmful content on social media p people feel that something should be done about it. And when you ask whether tech companies are policing themselves properly. I think a lot of people would say the answer to. That is no more needs to be done. So I would not rule out the possibility that other governments will actually look to the UK and how successful or unsuccessful this country is pulling this off parmi Elson. Thank you so much for speaking. With me.

Thanks for your help. You're supposed to tip your house cleaner write about kicking into their disability insurance from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy on jed Kim in for. Molly would. Some might consider domestic employees the original gig workers. There are a lot of similarities like intermittent income, and no real safety net is a problem that affects millions of workers like nannies caregivers and housecleaners the national domestic workers Lance is trying to change this. There's something it calls its innovation arm and DWA labs. It's bringing financial tech to domestic workers. It's new platform called Leah directs digital payments towards benefits for housecleaners. Marketplace's Lila Goldstein talked with one user about the platform, alleviate Mahia is a house cleaner in Brooklyn. Her son David is in the third grade and has a lot of school trips in always always he won. I can go with him. It used to be saying, yes, meant losing income. But last year, she went with her son's class to the prospect park zoo and still got paid thanks to a platform called Leah. It helps gig workers like her earned benefits. Like paid time off she pulls up the website on her phone Huma Boya plataforma. The leeann is the Mittel me contra Sania, she logs in chooses the worker option and sees a total dollar amount. It's money clients have contributed specifically for benefits clients select the client option find their house cleaners account and choose whether to give the platform recommends five dollars per cleaning this money can only be used for benefits offered by Leah then go toward or contracts. Didn't they eat thing goals will they be their Mahy is taken out life insurance and accident insurance. She also took to pay days off. Here's how bad stun when a worker reaches one hundred twenty dollars on a Lia. They can trade it in for a prepaid visa card like a lot of financial tech tools. Elliott automates something that can be complicated for workers to do on their own longtime workers advocate Pollock Shah helped develop the Elliott platform. What technology is really doing is in neighboring all. All of these multiple parties coordinating them taking all this transactions. Putting it all in one place, and allowing for the worker to be able to draw down those benefits, and it gives clients a more formal way to contribute to benefits Mahia is already comfortable communicating virtually she rarely sees her clients. She just text them notamment them excluding this. They huddle Yemi Leoneto soda. She gets a key. And they leave her money on the table at first Mahia was a bit embarrassed to leave fliers inviting her clients to use a Leah. But then she thought about all the other types of workers who get benefits oughta Mattingly. You don't think benefits you one the toll moon, though, that I don't know if you've seen us, they a whole ISM benefits us. She thought why not me, but you'll notice way at the net. The Goldstein brought us that story alita currently doesn't offer some really important benefits. No health insurance, no retirement plan. But as the gig economy grows. More workers will be looking for alternative ways to get the benefits. They need. And now for some related links. You may remember that Uber recently settled with drivers in California and Massachusetts for twenty million dollars. The lawsuit raises the question of whether drivers are fully employed as or just contractors the agreement won't end that debate. But it does that an average of about twenty two hundred dollars per driver. In those states NBC reports that the settlement amount is pretty favorable for Uber, which is trying to sign up. Its image ahead of an IPO. Uber has kept the number of lawsuits from drivers down by making it the default that legal disputes, go through arbitration, beware. The wrath of the rideshare driver though. More than twelve thousand have opted to go through arbitration now Hoover foots, the fifteen hundred dollars filing fee, for such cases and Gizmodo calculates that comes to about nineteen million dollars in fees for Uber. There've been several other settlements for the company, but none that would seem to break the Bank after all we're is expecting to be valued at one hundred twenty billion dollars. I'm jed Kim.

But what about that laptop that's littered with ten thousand photos unsorted documents and a barely visible desktop since digital storage space is so cheap. It's easy to keep amassing files. But that can take toll on our work in our wellbeing. Deb Lee is digital productivity coach she helps people weed out the virtual messes they've gotten themselves into we after what makes people finally give in decide to declutter. Well, usually there is some sort of a pain point. You can't find what you want. Maybe you're wasting time looking for what you want or you just can't seem to focus. So there's usually some sort of pain that triggers the desire to start getting things organized and putting things in order. How is doing a digital declutter different from doing declutter of your house? Well, the good news is that it's not that dip. Different. It's pretty similar. You still have a goal that you're trying to achieve most of us have things that we're not using. Sometimes we have duplicates of things because we couldn't find the original thing. So we went out and got the next thing. Right. So it's a pretty similar process. You have duplicates of things you have things that are just sort of lingering on your on your device that you're not using taking up space that you could use for other things that you are using or want to use. You know, how many times have we tried to take that photo? And it says up you're running out of space. Are you can't take that photo? Right. So that usually becomes a pain point. And then we recognize I can't capture these really important moments in my life because I've got all the stuff that I don't use. Or I don't need any more. What you find is the hardest part to declutter what it goes to our digital lives. I think it's the process of trying to fix it that perhaps sometime stops us that fear of goodness. It's going to take all day or take too long for me to manage this. I think that's. Where some of that reluctance to tackle it comes about. And sometimes when it has to do with things like your photographs they come with memories and special memories. You know, we sort of we feel attached to them. We remember those moments when we look at them, and we think well, we can't get rid of this photo. But if it's the fifth iteration of the same photo, then yes, you can so to make it a little bit easier. Start with those things that are obvious those duplicates or the the blurry photos or the ones where you can't make out. Exactly what it is that you took the picture of anyway, or those burst photos where you hold your finger on the phone so long that it just takes five hundred at the same time. And I know that because that just happened to me recently, but it's easy to delete. So definitely make deleting in Pershing sort of a regular habit. So it doesn't feel so much like a chore deadly is a digital productivity. Coach I asked her about her personal habits. And she's got a simple tip. You know, the home screen that pops up when you unlock your smartphone. She keeps it completely clear of anything except a calming picture totally stealing that. Then now for some related lists not into the idea of digital decluttering suppose, you could go the other way digital hoarding. That's the compulsion to save all things digital Mike photos of every receipt. You get or every single Email you've ever received. It's been studied. And some researchers think it's a some type of hoarding disorder witness the case in the B M J, aka British medical journal of a Dutch man who took and saved hundreds of digital photos every day turns out he hoarded physical objects to find yourself saving a lot of files. Get don't necessarily have a problem. Maybe you just get a kick out of collecting Gizmodo has a deep dive into digital hoarding. It makes a distinction between hoarding and collecting a digital collector might be the person who digitises all his old family photos and videotapes it can actually be a source of pride and positive feelings. Fine. Finally, if you think if firm morality is the answer for digital clutter by which I mean that some things can be put online with the expectation. They will disappear like Snapchat. Thank again. An article in wired questions the privacy expectations. Many people have with FM morality. And of course, there could always be a digital hoarder saving screen shots of whatever you typed.

"gizmodo" Discussed on KOA 850 AM

"Tech guy? Labs dot com. Did you see? Kashmir hill is a is a writer for well. She does a lot of. So I guess this is a Gizmodo article, and she wrote an article she decided she was going to try to eliminate. What she calls the big five from her life, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and apple. Wow. Now, remember, she's a tech writer. Wow. So she had a friendly. Geek. Right. Some software. That would literally make sure that any domains that were owned by those five were blocked in her home and her work on her phone. In fact, she switched from windows because that's a Microsoft product and MacIntosh because that's an apple product both of those for verboten. She switched to a lenox laptop made by pure ISM. The idea is pure ISM has decided to do privacy forward, laptops. And so they, you know, disconnect everything and of course, can't use an Android phone, and you can't use a get us an iphone. So she switched to a Nokia phone like a flip phone. Actually wasn't. It was one of those candy bar very pretty candy bar phones. And she decided I'm going to try this. Can you imagine doing that in your life? I'm going to try this. She said I wind up placing a lot of phone calls this week because texting is so annoying on the Nokia Nokia. Remember, you remember this before smartphones you had to use something called T nine which was a predictive text thing, and you would type so if you wanted to type the letter A would have to type one. Because that's where a b and c are on the dial. If you wanted to see you'd have to type one three times twice one two three three times. Remember texting like that? Remember that? That's why texting was not big in the US. That's how we did it. No. Oh can't use Google for context. So she exports all her contacts. And the Nokia phone doesn't doesn't hold more than a couple of hundred. So she wheels her eight thousand context and one hundred forty three people ate. She can't use her car radio system because she drives a Ford fusion in it uses Microsoft does the operating system Microsoft car. The there goes your there goes your music. And I mean, you can't really play music on the Nokia phone either. Right. In fact, she can she watch TV barely. She has to watch cable networks. She friends had all sorts of little problems too. Because for instance, she's trying to Email an attachment this too big for proton male, which is the privacy focused Email solutions she switched to. But you can't use even things like dropbox because they live on Amazon. This is remember this is this is a very, you know, interact intern interlocked world, and if if you're not gonna use anything from Amazon that means you can't use any services that use Amazon and almost everybody does. Essentially, she said, this is the worst weeks worst weeks where's month of my life. Something not delightful as my Nokia's thirty-three. Ten camera takes terrible dark photos. Terrible. I remember those. Bad color. In short. Then I don't think she meant to write this this way. I don't think she you might say. Oh, well, yeah. She's basically hired by Google Amazon. Microsoft apple Facebook too, right? My life was a living hell without you. But I think if you if you if you just do the thought experiment yourself wouldn't be much fun with it. And yet, you know, aren't we all a little bit worried about? What the intrusion of these big companies door life might mean, do you really want five companies to control every facet of your life? Worst. You want them to be able to follow you around. In germany. They've just ordered Facebook Germany, Germany's competition regulator just short Facebook to restrict. How collects and combines data about its users unless you as a user say, yes, okay. And somebody Renard saying this completely destroys Facebook's business model. That's true. Facebook makes its money by knowing more about you than anybody else. And then using that to sell advertising. Facebook, of course claimed foul play they claim that. The German regulator overstepped the Mark by pursuing a data privacy matter that Facebook says falls under the remit of another regulator. They have one month to challenge the ruling before becomes legally effective. And of course, you do it in Germany, you kind of have to do it everywhere. It's hard for Facebook just to do that in Germany. If the order is upheld the company has to develop technical solutions to ensure it complies within four months. And if it doesn't thanks to the wonderful GDP are it could in theory be fined up to ten percent of its annual revenue. That's a lot of money revenue not.

The most popular gamble is made by and it's called the Osmo mobile. It sells for just over one hundred and twenty five dollars the problem with it though is that it has to be attached to a smartphone to use the built in smartphone camera and the stabilization is rather mild, especially compared to what you get on a drone. Additionally, the Osmo mobile is very bulky clearly could never fit in your pocket, and thus never really left. My house very often. In the new Osmo pocket is truly the size of a small candy bar. Well, maybe more. As was noted by the tech publication, Gizmodo Abbar that's been half eaten you could fit. It into your shirt pocket or purse, and you get the advantage of three axis Kimball.

"Hopefully, nobody will remember you just said that. I would say that. All right. Keira? Yeah. How did you do last year? All right. So last year I predicted same Steve that twenty eighteen would be the hottest year on record. It was actually I think very smart prediction. It just happened to not pan out. But did we partial credit for that? Because it was top four. Okay. All right. I also predicted one that I don't fully understand which was that in two thousand eighteen there will be more cubits than ever before. Biblical Cuban like computing. Yeah. So as I started to look back on the quantum computing news. I mean for the most part, it looks like it's the strongest or the best or the, you know, the most accurate quantum computer, which we still don't have one that is like super accurate up to twenty eighteen through twenty seventeen. Utilized fifty cubits, and that seems to be the sort of standard in research right now. But of course, there are all sorts of different predictions about how many how many cubits are required for the ability to do good quantum computing. But I did find an article that was published by Gizmodo in this month in December or sorry last month in December of twenty eighteen talking about a Maryland startup that is called ion cue, which is doing some quantum computing research kind of in. I don't know in opposition to that's not the right word in competition with giants like IBM and Google, and they talk about using where did I find it? There was a number here seventy nine cubits. It says I q reports the problem is it's machine could be built as large as one hundred sixty cubits that only has performed competing apparitions or gates on seventy nine. So it is actively done seventy nine cubit computation. Nice. Did it in eighteen? Yeah. This year. So maybe I got it. But this is the only article I could find that talked about anything more than fifty. And it was this Maryland start up. The problem is the Fidelity's not great yet. I could probably dig deeper. I mean, this is Gizmodo coverage. So there's probably more coverage, but it's hard to know about source material because a lot of people just repackage other reporting. But yeah, so far when I found is seventy nine cubits versus fifty win. I'm not sure and this rules here. Yeah. And then this one bitcoin will hit a record high and crash we talked about this earlier with spare lady that bitcoin. Actually, I looked I found a few different bitcoin tracker apps that showed the full price history and the highest peak of all time actually occurred on no way, I thought it was in two thousand seventeen one eight twenty eighteen that's the highest peak of all time in. Bitcoin and then it starts to crash. So that was fifteen thousand is that right fifteen thousand four hundred seventy two dollars and thirteen cents. And right now bitcoin is. Four dollars three thousand. No, it's still it's still three thousand seven hundred fifty three o eight as of today. But that was a big high it it's not the biggest crash like if you look before that peak and on January twenty eighteen there was a massive uptick like it looks like the hockey stick. It's just going straight up. And then after that, it's a slow steady decline. There's a little bit of a crash in November of twenty eighteen and then it rebounded a little bit over the last couple of weeks, but not anywhere close to the full high. So it's an interesting graph. It's definitely holding value. It's not down zero yet. I thought we'd be further along Connie's with crypto currencies. But because we've been talking about them for many years now, and they seem to still be fringe. Well, yeah, I think that there's just too much insecurity for mainstream individuals to adopt this. I mean, I think that yeah. You're seeing that this is a risky undertaking. It's also under. Taking that can be very easily. I don't wanna say hacked because it can't. But that's the whole point. It can't be hacked, but easily mind not manipulated. But like you actually can create these find the code for these bitcoins. And so there is a whole secondary bitcoin economy of mining bitcoins. Which is a little strange. So I just think it's too wonky for your everyday person primetime..

Stanley, STAN Lee And Writer discussed on John Batchelor

"Like spider man, and the hulk Thor also the Black Panther ever, nurses covers comics for Gizmodo. He's a comic book writer himself as it happens. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. I'm going to quote, your tweet this morning back to yourself with a slight paraphrase to make it a FCC compliant. You said this is actually messing me up a lot more than I expected Stanley's writing. And speaking voice has been in my head almost my entire life. That's kind of a thing. He's been out there for a very was out there for a very long time being really influential. Yeah. So much of what we think about when we think about superheroes. And even pop culture comes from Stanley. Here's the thing about about the superheroes. That Stanley came up with for my money that sort of makes him stand out the superheroes. That that came from the minus Stanley and others, we should say, and I'll get to that in a minute. Were the oddballs in the misfits. And yet he made it, okay? To be that. And then we should say marvel and Disney made it okay to make gazillions of dollars off that. Yeah. I think the thing we have to remember when we think about STAN Lee is, you know, he himself was like an outlier right in terms of doing what he did in the nineteen forties and nineteen fifties. He worked at a magazine company, which made comics when he really wants to be like a screenwriter novelist like he had different ambitions for himself. So it's not a stretch. I think to say that Stanley was taking his own sense of being a misfit. And you know, he was a Jewish man in America. Right after World War Two you. I think those are some of the things that probably forms. The idea that went into characters like Spiderman. Fantastic four the X men. Here's a trickier question. Did he have more influence on the comic book industry or later in life and through his derived work in comic books, a bigger influence on the movie industry? So that's an interesting question. I feel like you have to think about when marvel universe that we know started in nineteen sixty one the company was near death DC was dominant with a formula that was viewed as a lot more stayed in save. But when when standing this cO contributors come up with the marina verse nineteen sixty one of those characters if basically forces DC to step up their game and rethink about hiding their cassettes Wiesner characters. So then it became this competition that reinvigorated the whole superheroes genre. And I think then you see that trickling out as annotations become more and more common in TV and movies and stuff. So I think the comic Centric portion of his career is far more because without it happened. So here's. The impolitic question the kind of has to be asked and you refer to this a little bit in your job at that. You wrote of him today. Did he maybe get a disproportionate amount of the credits since he was the guy out there hustling, and and making it work. I mean other people helped him come up with all these guys. Yeah. Stanley was a pitch man. Right. He was the public face of the company for decades. And I think by sheer virtue of that there was an instance of kind of unintended erasure of his other co creators, but I think. The only today with remember that STAN was there and so much of what marvel became was a result of his direct involvement like his his personality, and his energy is all inside of that work ever. Narcisse senior staff rhetoric is motor writes on comic books and has written comic books as well. Evan. Thanks a lot. I appreciate your time. Thanks for having me. Right.

U.S. to restrict e-cigarette flavors to fight teenage vaping 'epidemic'

"The Gizmodo story here about the FDA pending ban on certain flavored types of e cigarettes says the Wall Street Journal has reported as a yesterday that jewel labs, which is the market leader. Apparently in these enclosed. Nicotine salt devices dual labs plans to pull most of its flavored vaping products from brick and mortar stores sightings, you know. It hasn't even come out yet and Jules already planning to do this. Are they owned by anybody? I mean, it's Joel I asked about that actually when I was talking with Daryl off the air about this. And according to one of the stories, I was looking at they are a startup. So I don't think they're like Philip Morris or Altria or whatever it is these major. Cigarette manufacturers, I don't think they're behind jewel, but I haven't done any real research into that. I bet you Wikipedia would know about that. So anyway, according to sources familiar with the decision again Jules gonna pull their products from bacon, brick and mortar stores the ones with flavors following you. Start buying them. Folks, falling in line with the report about the forthcoming FDA ban on some flavored vaping products. The company reportedly quote plans to keep menthol and tobacco flavored products in stores and all of its flavored products, including cucumber and mango. We'll continue to be available for. We'll continue to be available for sale on its website. I can't imagine people would want to buy cucumber flavored. I mean, what talk about one of the most flavourless vegetables out there. Cucumbers is one of the most boring vegetables. That's what people who like cucumbers say I on the other. They say it just tastes fresh. I on the other hand all hate this this particular fruit, I'm not a fan of cucumbers. I just to me everything that touches a cucumber touches tastes like you cumbersome. So yeah, I've never really had that problem with it green peppers. And we're like that for me. Now, I just I think it's vile. Kids. Eat your vegetables, right numbers. Really don't have that nutrients or anything. They're just crispy water. A little bit better. Maybe than lettuce, right? Iceberg lettuce. Right. It's better than you know, the Hershey bar that I had leftover. Comes from the cocoa tree. That's natural. That's right. It's natural. So that's your news about the the ban. I'm sure it's going to get you know, there's a good chance it's gonna get worse from here. But ultimately come on the idea that this is going to protect children is just ridiculous on its face. And. I'm sorry. Hello. If the ideas you're gonna stop teenagers from getting their hands on this. But you don't think teenagers not at UC internet. You're going to order these things online or they're going to figure out how to use one of the refillable juice things. Yes. Go and get it's a smarter move. Anyway, it's more economical from what I can tell to buy the juice and refill new, you know, the same unit over and over again, then keep buying these electric things. They have to throw out after you're done with them. Exactly one time as a teenager. Did. I sit out in the parking lot of a grocery store near a liquor store and trying to get somebody going in there to buy us alcohol at work. We did get it. But it was an embarrassment works for us to. And then we knowing. Homeless guy. I don't know. I I don't know what his Thomas. He looked hard working in my case, but mine was ten years before. And after that, I realized this is a dumb way to go about this. And I know a lot of people over the age of twenty one. And so I just planned ahead. Just gonna talk to him. Hey, I'd like to get a bottle of vodka. And I'd like to know here's the money. Go take care of that for me, please. If you would and that's how we handle that issue when I was in high school. So I had enough forethought to plan ahead to get my mind altering substance that I was going to drink mind. You this kept me away from beer and put me on hard liquor because I couldn't transport a case of beer is easily more space, a one point seven five liters of vodka plastic bottle. So I mean, you know, the the result of the laws caused me to to get more concentrated alcohol, but ladies and gentlemen, this rule is it going to stop kids from getting the drugs that they want to get all they have to do is plan ahead a little bit and Infos that don't plan ahead. This that kids were more likely to have jobs when I was when I was my age. I certainly. Had a job. So therefore, I had money to get these things. I don't know how kids afford anything these days. Well, their moms and dads. Probably give them some money not for jewel. They know what it's for money in the end up spending it on those things. But look even for the ones who don't plan ahead. You're right. Mark some will. But for those who don't plan ahead. There will be the
