"Earnings calls an apple. Music radio's playing. It's what that sounds like a distant any something like music. You can actually understand it. But this whole thing i just i stayed far away from it because we have enough coverage and if i need an article i can research but anyway the this. It's been going on for a few days. And ev everything i've seen about it. Everything of obscene written about it has basically said epa. Keep shooting themselves in the foot. They don't seem prepared. They don't have a real argument and the judges is just tired of hearing this. And yeah it's it's just a crazy thing all the way around and there's been a couple of times with the judge has sided with apple either an objections or in making points. Some of those things namely apple argue that the thirty percent commission on avenue at purchases is an industry standard and brought up companies. Like sony nintendo obviously another video game maker google and samsung good argument and again. You know apple. It's not their first legal battle. Ever you know they kind of know what they're doing so they have some good arguments here but talked about that commission. They also argued there between march twenty eighteen and july twenty twenty last year that only seven percent of the revenue from fortnight came from the irs app. So as hard as epic is fighting for this inept payment system through apple's platform very small percentage of their revenue against so curious that they're making this big deal about it. I've seen people pointed out. And i think it's smart The reason why epic is targeting apple on the stage is because they appear to be weakened by bringing back the whole hey debacle they. They were already pinned down by that Before ww wdc and twenty twenty and this came shortly after that is just one after the other salvo after salvo and i think epic to saw a weak moment and apple and thinking we can. We can do this now and target them. Because again like if this was brought before sony or nintendo google or anyone else this argument it would be dismissed very quickly because the market share there It shows there isn't a monopoly. Steak and epic thinks they have some sort of winning chance with when you know examining the numbers they. They really don't have a dog in the race to other points. I thought was interesting. Apple mentioned across wallet gaming meaning and this is the same with other digital purchases if epa games were to give users the ability to buy v. books which is the inap- currency of fortnight. They could buy on epic's website which someone could go to safari on ios. There's no block their purchase the v. box in safari they would immediately be usable inside the game in epic and making the argument. You know that's restricting people's ability to buy it quickly to which i think the judge brought up like so you're basically encouraging impulse purchases for people to spend a bunch of money on digital goods. That don't mean anything. It's got along with moments. Where like i guess they are. They're saying people need to be able to impulse. Buy things that don't amount to any real world value and welcome to spend a lot of money doing it. you know. It's kind of this kind of caught in a bad position there. So that's available to you. Just like amazon kindle books..

"Shown right underneath it and expand it and that is not the case they show notes or not there you have to tap on the scrolling episode title which is not intuitive and not obvious or you have to go to the show page and an episode and then you see this show so overall the apple. Podcast app is rather broken at the moment. I encourage you try to third party. If you've never done that yet you've got overcast. Pocket casts castro. There's great apps out. There actually reached out to those developers and marco it was very kind actually had an email chain with him. He kind of explained how podcast apps work and the change. That apple has made to. Since i was fourteen point five that may have caused that bug. And so that's in the article. Also talk to the developers of podcasts and castro. They're all very kind to interact with me and kind of explain how their systems worked. And there's a lot of technical stuff in there. Maybe i'd love to do a bonus episode or an interview with some of these guys to go through all those details but check out the article if you have any thoughts but you got any thoughts on all that well. It's just crazy to think that apple has been kind of the home. The arbiter of podcasts of for years and suddenly they can just flip a switch and break a lot of people's livelihoods overnight. Yeah it it all gets fixed in a few days but like you said some of these things can have lasting effects. Advertisers can get spooked. And it's it's not great. It's not it's not a great look and if apple on the day that they say they're going to make a better push for podcasting introduce all these premium features compete in the market. And then suddenly their podcast at breaks. And everyone's podcasts. Can no longer be seen by their listeners than what's happening and sure they're working around the clock to fix it but it's just another one of these weird issues where apple remains silent in the background trying to fix a big problem in the rest of us are scrambling hoping that someone may pay attention to his long enough to fix it it just. It doesn't seem smart to me and it goes back to the whole issue of. There's only ten people working at apple and they can only allocate so many of those people to each project and his at one time if all ten employees are working on airtags today. They can't look at the podcast app. And it's wild to me that this happens in a trillion dollar company on a regular basis. Yeah so again. I encouraged thank you To the apple people to help me on apple support and reach out on twitter. And i know you guys are working on it but a lot of people use your app in case. You didn't know you probably know that but just to reiterate a lot of people your app and also thanks to mark are meant and the makers of castro and pocket. I really have to dive super deep in podcast of enough time for that today. Listeners if you'd love to nerd out about rss feeds and servers and crawling feeds. And such a. Let me know. Because i would love to geek out about that sometime so now. We get into policies tracking and epic via apple. I i wanted to touch on some app tracking transparencies. So when i was fourteen point five came out requires apps to do the notification where users can say ass gap not to track or not face being the loudest opponents of this policy. But one thing. I want to mention his signal. Which is the secure messaging app cross platform. They did on incredible. Listen let me tell. This is a genius move by signal. They did a run of ads on facebook. They were short lived because facebook ban them shortly after but they did these ads that were basically solid color blue with white text and what they did was. They used the granular tracking information that facebook has and makes available to advertisers and put in the text of these ads so that when people saw these ads they saw their information being used by facebook to target them. For instance one of the ads was it. Just says this is just text blue background. This was signal doing these ads in facebook and instagram. Says you got this ad..

"Find it. This is going to work great indoors in places with a lot of radio signals. I i'd say it's going to be harder to pick up that thing. And that's where i found inside of my house. I found that. I get the dot a lot more often rather than the arrow just saying. Hey the airtags detected and it's within five feet and the only thing i can really do is move the iphone around and wait for that number to go down to a lower number so it's not always perfect but it's definitely better than nothing. No it's cool. Now one of the features. I feel like this was just an oversight but with the fine my app if you have family sharing set up with your cloud account so you have a spouse and or kids when you go to find my app you can see all the devices associated with all of your family members. So when i go to that app. I can see my wife's phone as well as for apple watch and ipad airpods the same with my kids that are in the family sharing area and my parents were there. You could turn that off and stop sharing certain things but air tag does not have a family sharing feature which i guess i understand why but it's unfortunate because in the event that the one air tag i have attached to my son's backpack if he loses it for whatever reason. I haven't attached to my find my app but if i'm not home or if i'm not with them my wife has no way of bringing the air tag via audio or doing the precise location tracking she would have to text me to hopefully ping it remotely and obviously i wouldn't be able to help with the precision tracking so hopefully they will add this feature where family members. Maybe you can give access individually or just by default all family members. See all airtags but to be able to do that so my wife could track it just the same as i could and my kids because my kids are also in my family sharing account. But they don't have iphones yet. They have an ipad and they're find my apps don't see the air tag either even though one of them is on one of their backpacks so i feel like this may be an oversight hopefully ww. Maybe we'll see this in iowa's fifteen. Maybe we'll have to wait a year for something like this. But i really hope they bring that family sharing aspect to the air tag tracking. I think if you think about this beyond the surface level it gets very complex very fast and say you're in a family and you don't have location sharing turned on for certain family members just privacy or whatever but then they have an air tag that everyone can see so you can still track their location. It gets into an if you place. Maybe if they don't have locations hearing turned on their airtags won't show up and family sharing sure but it. Just it's definitely something apple's going to solve four or maybe it's complex enough that they'll just ignore it and hope people forget that it's a problem i i did want to bring up to. I haven't seen anyone really talking about this. This also works with siri. Airtags works with syria and homepods as well so now names are important. Don't name your airtags thirty-seven emojis. Because you know you'll never find it if you tell your home pod the big one or the small one. Where are my keys. Just that command and your airtags called keys. It'll say looking for your keys. Now this is also based on the voice detection feature for homepods so if you and your wife are in on the same homepods network or whatever. And she says that it's going to look for something labeled keys in her airtags. Find my section. So if she doesn't have one it's going to say. I don't know you're talking about so it's it doesn't solve for the family sharing issue but you yourself could ask where my keys and siri will play an audio sound from the airtags in the room so if they just fell between the couch cushion or whatever. You don't necessarily have to open the fine my app and find it that way okay. Well that's very cool now. To other things. There is a tear down of the airtags done by the famous. I fix it so you can check that out amazing. How much stuff is packed into this. Little quarter quarter-sized tag from apple to check that out and also there was a hidden debug mode. I have to imagine this is going to be removed in a future. Iowa's update probably pretty soon. But what would the article in show notes. Basically if you tappan airtags multiple times in the fine my app it kinda throws it into this weird debug thing with sliders that don't really have any designation or names and you know clearly. This is something that you're not supposed to access as the regular user of the air tag but interesting it was discovered. I don't know if i recommend doing this. I've seen people get stuck in this even after closing the app. Maybe like resetting. Your iphone will fix it but you don't want to be stuck in debug mode yet. Don't don't do this. It's a cool thing but it just shows a bunch of greek letters. You're you're not going to be able to figure it out. It's it's fun. This episode is brought to you by express. Vpn have you ever browsed in incognito mode or private mode and safari it's actually not as incognito as you think why would it be incognito mode like the chrome browser itself is a google product and google has made its fortune by tracking your movements online even with all the measures that apple and others have taken. Google is developing more ways like flocks to track you across your internet browsing. There's even a five billion dollar class action lawsuit against google in california where it's accused of secretly collecting users data. What's their defense. Incognito does not mean invisible. How do you actually make yourself as invisible as possible online. What of the way data brokers buy and sell your data is with your ip address data.

"Our thanks doc for sponsoring this episode or i will one of the things we got as we were recording. The last episode airtags delivered got a number of them. I have five airtags right now. Total of one engraved idea one grave with initials and a star emoji. And then i got a pack a four as well. I said on twitter. This is the first time. I've ever gotten an apple. Product engraved typically. I may sell them in the future. I don't know what to put. So i'm not going in grave this is. I don't know what you call it. An etching engraving because not unlike the metal or aluminum. It's a nice etching. I like it. I got some accessories. Got the leather keychain from apple. One for me one for my wife. Also got the belkin keychain. It's more plastic but less expensive than apple's option definitely works just as well as a key chain and that got a couple loops the kind that you would put around bag handle or a piece of luggage and to say. I'm not as crazy about those loops for an apple product. That doesn't feel great like the material that its using. I'm not sure what that is. But before we get to actual air tag functionality. How many did you get. You get an engraved and accessories. You get with it. So i ordered a four pack of unreleased unproductive and those came four or five days later. So i guess i got into the second run of engravings i got. I didn't get initials or anything. Like the emojis. Got an alien skull a robot and the a video game alien From forget space invaders. I hits yeah. I don't know why the space invaders alien that's great. I got the four pack. And then. I got one apple keychain The leather key chain and ordered days before preorders went live amazon. Just had a bundle of these things. I ordered The spy jin keychain as well. So i had to keychains to play with. Oh i got impatient and decided you know what i bet target has an air tag and i i went to target and and they didn't have one but best buy did. Got me an air tag blink to play with for the weekend and that is now my dad's and okay. Guess what he is sixty seven years old and loses things every day and he lost his tags three times since he's had an airtight attached to it and it has helped greatly and finding them in the laundry ben and the yard. It's great. it's great at school. Now let me let me ask you so as far as functionality wise you know it's a nice setup process each individual airtags wrapped in plastic. Where even it goes inside the airtags separating battery from the contact so when you pull the plastic tab out of the air tag the battery makes connection emits a little sound very pleasant and you'll see a pop up on your iphone to set it up and it sets up kind of airpods do has got a car that slides up and all that so very nice at a process you can name it when it got to the information attached to the tag as far as i could tell it pulls your name and the phone number on file. I think your apple. Id but i don't believe you can actually change that phone number or name during the setup process. Is that accurate. Yeah it doesn't really give you any options. All the editing stuff comes after. You've actually set up their tag gotcha and then you can choose. One of the pre listed designations whether it's keychain or backpack and you're off to the races you can put in your case or your backpack or whatever. Got one of my key ring governor. My backpack got a third one in another bag. And i use the two others. My wife's keychain and then a garage key that we set up. I use the belkin keychain on that as far as making the sound that's a really helpful feature you know that's something where if you have an apple watch in an iphone especially if you're a parent you probably understand like losing your phone in the house or if a kid uses it you're not sure where it is being able to pin your phone from an apple watch is really useful also being able to ping an air tag and haven't make a sound even though it's not very loud is a really helpful feature just to give you that auditory response of whereas in the room so i can find it. So that's a really cool feature. I've found the precision location tracking which is what apple really showed off with the you one chip where you can go into the item choose precision tracking and then you'll have an arrow pointed in the direction of the air tag and i've tried to demo this for people to kind of really show them the power of the one and being able to find the precise location. It did work but there were a couple times that even though the tag was only a few feet away maybe that was the issue. It was too close. Which doesn't make too much sense but it didn't find it right away like the arrow pointed direction. The kind of just gave me the circle animation for a while and i had to move farther away from the air tag to arrow to pop up and point me in the direction of the air tag. What's been your experience trying to demo that precise location feature well. I'll go ahead and start with a disclaimer on iowa's fourteen point six. So i have no idea if anything's different from the vanilla version of ios but in the beta it it works great. I've not had any issues again like funding my dad's keys because i have a detached my phone. He actually doesn't even have a phone. Finding his keys was pretty straightforward. It's not as specific as you would expect. I mean apple. It's a tracking system. But i mean we're not talking about satellite. Gps here it. It's using bluetooth signals from faraway than ultra wide band. Once or closer and then find my. We'll get you within thirty yards of the thing depending on the signal strength of the devices attached to when it was last seen. So you're playing with a lot of Era range here like for example when my dad losses keys i knew it had to be on the property. That's all i got. You can look on the fine my app and it's on the property big blue circle surrounding the area and all i could do was open the fine my app click on find the tags and walk around with the phone hand now. This did work great. Though because once i came within bluetooth range of the i got a little haptic feedback on the phone saying that it had picked up an air tag right. The arrow didn't pop up. But i did see within twenty five feet and then started moving so the numbers went down and then the arrow popped up at about ten feet and then i was able to close in on the air tag that that worked. Great and i can imagine you know in a mall. Parking lot in the fields. You know any anywhere where you might lose something where just eyeballing a location isn't going to.

The Epic Court Battle That Could Upend Apple's Future

"Talked on the show before about developer fees. Those are the commission's usually around thirty percent. That app store owners take from purchases made through their marketplaces. Some developers have pushed back against these fees. Saying there too high while store owners like apple and google have argued that the fees are necessary to keep transactions secure. This debate is the subject of a court battle between apple and the creator of fortnight epic games which kicks off today. The outcome of the trial will have ramifications for apple. And the rest of the tech giant's so for more on this. I'm joined by our apple reporter tim higgins. Hey tim thanks for being here. Thank you all right before we get started we should note that the wall street journal's publisher dow jones has a commercial agreement to supply news apple services. Okay so tim can. You remind us how we got to the trial that starts today. There's actually quite a dramatic backstory. Here right now. This is a clash of the titans. If you will it goes back to last august and the creator of fortnight epic games surprised a lot of people with an update to the fort game on the apple app store that aim to create a payment system. That would get around apple's payment system. They'll allow users to go into an epic games created pay system and that was a huge violation of apple's rules and it resulted in fortnight being booted from the app store and what followed was a pretty big legal battle that we now are seeing take place in a courtroom in oakland california and so as the court case. Kicks off today like you said in oakland. What's really the central question of this case. What is this all about. There's a few things going on here. Epic feels that apple is using. Its power anti competitive way specifically. They argue that apple has this delivery device or distribution device for apps on iphones and that it's one hundred percent controlled by them and that that is a monopoly in a bad sense and that they're misusing that power so what this case comes down to a large way is the definition of what a market is in the digital

"I'll be checking it out. But was how do those other preorders go for you so i also got the apple. Tv four k. I got the sixty four gig model because why not. Also i use apple arcade a lot and the screensavers pretty much all of the memory and thirty two gig apple. Tv so might as well get double the storage honestly. If there was a one twenty eight gig model. I would have got that. Yeah for sure that'll come on. The twenty-first that went through fine doesn't seem like there's too high demand for that apple. Tv the magic word. I ordered the gray one. Got that in yesterday. It is almost identical to the other one. I can't really notice any difference looking at it. Everything looks very much. The same the ipad shuts. Just find into it. There's no way to test anything in sluggish the newer thicker ipad. I will note that ever so slight difference in the angle and this might just be is playing tricks and might be the newness of the keyboard. I don't know but it seems like you can go. Maybe a degree and a half to decrease further back with this keyboard and that might also have to do with the thickness or weight distribution of the new model so listener. Joanna actually sent some pictures. He also got the the gray magic keyboard case and he took pictures with his current twelve point nine inch ipad pro like you have west with the new magic keyboard case and he said putting in a dime in kind of in between the magic keyboard case and the ipad when it's closed makes it seem like that's the thickness difference or that kind of made. It seem to fit a little better. We won't know until we get the new ipad pro in if the old keyboard case you know how much a dozen fit no. It doesn't look like a huge difference. I was going to say it's it's a strange device anyway because the keyboard has a magnetic thing in the keyboard half where when it's resting on the screen of the ipad it does sit flush with the screen it kind of snaps into place but not exactly because when you pick up the ipad you hold it with both hands holding it close basically but if you kind of course by the sides and move around a little bit. The ipad keyboard will come loose in certain circumstances. So it's it's not a very strong grip on the ipad anyway and i'm not exactly sure what apple is referring to and they say it won't have a perfect fit just because again like even the regular keyboard doesn't have a perfect fit. It's not going to stay closed by itself against gravity because the magnetic thing isn't strong enough so i'm just i'm interested in seeing exactly what apple is seeing that they might think is a big enough deal. That might be the next gate. You know whatever that they had to come out with a new model and advertise as compatible with the fifth generation ipad. So we'll see. Yeah so we'll have to see. May twenty-first actually probably whatever the reviewers get their embargoes lifted. I've been expecting i. M k b hd. And i just need to have their ipad reviews out curious when those embargoes will lift. A doesn't look like it's this week so maybe next week. Maybe it's the week of the actual launch typically apple times at close. Their embargoes usually list lift the week of like the tuesday before release even that wednesday or thursday at might lift because again we can order them right now so apple doesn't have much reason to hold the embargoes to a day before or something. I guess they would appear technically in stores that thursday. So yeah a win. A tuesday or wednesday embargo-lifting would make sense the week of the twenty first. Yeah melissa let us know what you preordered raking over the coals for the white magic keyboard. If you must. But i don't know i'm kind of excited to see what it looks like not excited to see how dirty it gets. How quickly but we'll see. I mean if you've seen my desk i'm not a fan of white accessories but it's fine. I don't expect it to get super dirty. At least it's not that What is it alcan. Tara cloth or whatever that uses yeah. It's not that it's not going to get this not gonna turn into cheeto cheese overnight but i expect the keys will wear to you know a darker color over time like the regular magic keyboard. It's the rest of the material. I'm curious about because the keyser plastic but the rest of its rubber and white. Rubber tends to stain yellow very quickly. So we'll see this episode is brought to you by zakir doc. Now has this ever happened to you. You need to see a doctor. You search for one which is not an easy process. You find one. That looks good book an appointment. You rearrange your schedule maybe get off work and you finally go in but you find out once. You're there in person that the doctor doesn't take your insurance. It is one of the most frustrating experiences but there is a great solution. And you never have to deal with that again. You download the.

Apple, Epic Games' Antitrust Trial to Begin Monday

"Of apple versus epic games. We've been talking about it. All year finally begins monday monday. Monday third presided over by judge. Yvonne gonzalez rogers of the united states district court for the northern district of california. The case was brought by epoch after it tried to offer an alternative way of paying for in game purchases in fortnight earlier this year apple removed the game from the app store. The case will evaluate whether the sherman act's definition of a monopoly in the united states applies to an operating systems app store. Epic would like the right to offer. Its own app store on us as well as also be able to offer alternative payment methods within its apps distributed through. Apple's app store if epic. Were to win this case that would lead developers offer their own in app payment systems and possibly force apple to allow side loaded apps or even alternative app stores now in the case. Here's some of the arguments to be on the lookout for apple's going to argue that competition is and should be among devices not within the os and apple's going to argue that. The app store is an integral part of its operating system and that changing that would make the device worse which is not the aim of antitrust law and that making it offer alternate app stores would be like forcing it to sell iphones with chips other than its own a series or something like that epochs going to point to the mac which has an app store but also allows for other ways of buying and selling software and say. Why is it so integral on the phone and not integral on your laptop. Apple's going to point to game consoles like the playstation and the xbox which have a thirty percent commission and don't offer alternate stores and say that's the industry standard. We're just doing what they do.

So that's that's a clear sign of the fact that the iPhone 12 having five G. That's what was critical for China because Five. The networks are very widely available in China, and without a five the phone Apple was at a real disadvantage. IPad in Mac sales also nearly doubled.

iOS 14.5 Lets You Say No to Data Tracking

"Pop ups. We love to hate them. We love to x. Them out ace app but in apple's long awaited update to its i o s operating system which came out this week. There's a new kind of pop up now appearing on iphones and ipads and it's actually one. You might end up appreciating especially if you're concerned about your data or your privacy here to explain is recode. Sarah morrison sarah teddy. So tell me about this pop up. What prompts it and what does it do. So this is a feature called app tracking transparency apt tracking transparency. Okay yes and how you might see it in the wild apps when you open them are supposed to present you with the prompt that asks if you want. Allow the app to track your activity across other apps or not. Okay so those are the two options. What happens if you click allow or not allow so you have two little bit. Get into how this tracking and basically cross app tracking powers like a huge part of the mobile app economy. It's how advertisers data brokers collect all the information about you that they use to then sell ads to you and what they do is they'll sneak trackers into like thousands of different apps and those are all connected to your device so if you have a smart tv remote app like a gas station. Finder app weather app. Menstrual cycle tracker app. Maybe not solvent for you teddy but others. Dating apps game apps shopping apps. Whatever all the stuff you do across all of them will go back to that. One company with the tracker which you can see gives it pre comprehensive profile of you and meanwhile you probably have no idea that this company was getting all that information about you in the first place and so. That's the profile that advertisers target ads to. So if you say do not allow. i don't wanna be trapped cross apps. Your device will not release this unique identifier. Which is what they use the connector activity across all the apps so basically the thing they use to target ads to you to get the profile to target ads to their cutoff from a major source of that information

I need you talk me out of this because this is this is probably a bad idea I talk a lot on Yeah i can tell you about my job. Know whatever I've working lot of my porsche. Nine eleven lately So one of the big faults at the nineteen hundred portion nine eleven like every single car from this era is to air conditioner absolutely sucks. It's terrible and part of that is because the hoses in it are in mine are now thirty six years old after a while like things starts leak so i talked to my mechanic this week. And i'm like yeah. I'm thinking about taking apart my evaporator condenser pulling out all my hoes lines. A pulling out the lower condenser Adding third air conditioner vent and doing this. Huge twenty five hour project. I'm expecting him to say now. Breathe this is beyond your ability to bring in an will. Let the pros handle it. He's like no. It's it's not hard job is just very very tedious and a lot of grunt work and i think i think you could do that. And unlike dob now the godless been thrown. Now got twenty hours on my back underneath a thirty six year old car installing an air conditioner. I'm going to try it and that project starts this weekend so i i do. It said last stretch. Something electrical set the com fire. I did release a little magic smoke. So that doesn't happen again. So christine talked me out of this or talk into it. I don't know. I mean look. I'm not a fan of laying. Okay actually how to raise I was gonna lean on my back with hoses. But i'm sorry. This is this this this where this is our show. This is why you all listen. Yeah i'm not a fan. I'm not a fan of manual labor. Yup so i would just pay someone else to do it. That's me but i do also appreciate. The part of this is like the effort of going through in doing it right. So i i also understand that right like it's kind of like kneeling building the keyboard or computer like so i understand that aspects I mean you can try it like worst thing that can happen as you can ruin your car right.

Department came out just today and was saying cryptocurrencies increasingly something. They're seeing people used to do tax evasion with so i do think with this. You're going to see an increased amount of basically regulator stepping. It and i think that's very perceptive views amount there. There's going to be a. I don't want to say cost because i think it's appropriate but there's going to be They're going to be other things that are gonna follow from here. I i just think. I think overall you know full disclosure. I did buy some of coin based today because if you look at where facebook wise when it first had its ipo. I remember the day. I think about this all the time i was like. Yeah facebook's could have lost glamour. I'm not sure. People are still competing in a while bad call. I'm sorry i'm not. Larry don't have money to invest back then but Today i think that the legitimate criticism of cryptocurrency and bitcoin is that overwhelmingly. It's more of a speculative investment more than something people use to actually buy things. I think that's a very very legit concern but that said I do think that kroto has future. And you know i thought it was appropriate to invest some in a basically what the pay pal is in crypto right. Now yes i mean. I think is sort of interesting. I did not invest in coin. Based today i tend not to buy an app ios. That are this hot because you can never get in low enough. And you don't know what your price is going to be and whatnot But but i certainly don't like.

Literally worthless literally should be worth zero because it it. There's no maximum amount of points that you can create. There's nothing you can even pretend to us with at lake it is. It is literally a mean coin it was created like to personify how dumb crypto currency is but my investment is up. I bought five hundred dollars worth. And i it is at me. See where am i right now. I'm at I'm up seventy bucks right now So not bad But like all those things being said. I do agree largely with With what you said briefly I think that. And you also known. I do feel like this is going to be one of those things that we see. More regulation especially around tax softening around kind of tracking. Where money goes the one thing though. I do personally find humorous about this. And and in ironic and a lot of ways is that this. Is this massive. Ipo it's it's the company that's already You know Profitable or on its facing profitable does already making like positive revenue or whatever But it's what is essentially done as centralizing..

"To us from Boston Hi will. So, hush is going to be a really terrible joke like how will from Boston has been hunting down the truth about five G.. You must get good will hunting jokes. Now it's terrible. It's good for my. Don't don't hurt yourself with that stretch Lord. Okay, we can just forget that. Okay. Will. You've written a lot about five G. for wired and apple hyped up five G. This week it called the whole event high speed. Like. We got invitations as at high comma speed executives talked about blazing fast download and connection speeds. Verizon's CEO Hans. Appeared on stage to talk about the wireless carriers expansion plans for five G. but reality is that were just not there yet the roll out a five genie us has been slowed by disagreements about technical standards, security concerns, international disputes. So well, I tell us what are some of the promises that five g. and then tell us what's taking a so long to get there. Yeah. Well, so obviously, the big promise is fastest speed. Supposedly one hundred times faster than than forty and also low latency meaning phone more responded millisecond, and for way more devices on the network. So what does that actually mean? People talk a lot about all these kind of futuristic applications like augmented virtual reality I've visited. In Shenzhen and they have this big census set up with demonstrating telemedicine and all these fantastic occasions. But the truth is I think we really don't know what people are GonNa Build on top of it and it'll be things nobody's expecting just as it was with forty. which enabled everything from Yuba Tiktok, and that's one of the reasons why this is is a big geopolitical football is because. We've seen how four? G. Was the foundation for a ton of of growth in economic and tech technology. And governments are expecting five same thing. So the reason it's been disappointing is that it's really a bunch of technologies and they're being rolled out in different ways by different networks at different speeds. So for the moment it means that you've got these kind of this patchwork of different forms of five and it's Much faster in some places than others. So. Yeah. That's really that's really why. So well, one of the things that verizon CEO talked about onstage at the apple event this week was the expansion of ultra wideband or. Five G. across the US and there are a few different flavors of five g. out there right now right there's low band and then there's The mid bend spectrum, which is sub six, and then there's this millimeter wave. So talk quickly about the differences between these and what we have available to us right now here in the US. Yeah. So five years really made up of a bunch of different frequencies those three since you talked about the low and mid which are. Longer range and Butler speed. So that's what people are gonNA using mostly. At the moment and this this millimeter wave stuff, which is very, very high frequency bites only goes up a short distances and yeah. Different carriers are doing different things in different countries doing different things in the US focused. On low band. Which is very Very little improvements, but also the millimeter wave and poly because this, the mid chunk has not been available and that's just being opened up. So the picture may change a little bit in the US in terms of. What can what five G. can do over the next year? So but yeah, so it's a it's a messy mixed picture. Really. So Julian you have reviewed most of the five G. phones that have come across the wire desks on the reviews team. Tell us a little bit about your experiences with five G. where you are in Brooklyn. Absolutely useless. Verizon has a couple of millimeter wave spots. And every time I get a five-day device what I do to go test I literally go across the grocery store that I shop add stand outside it because if I go inside I, lose five. G. And I guess I try to download. And APPS and and movies right there on the on the street and see how that goes and usually it's you know it's great. It's fast but I can't ever imagine a scenario where I'm walking down the street coming home and I'm like, oh, I got a download, those six Netflix's movies and four. K. and I have to do it right here on. The Sri level because obviously you know they have it in these random spots and only really works for like a block and a half you go further than that and you're back on for G if you go inside a coffee shop or something like that, you're back on four G.. So I really haven't found any meaningful purpose outside of benchmark testing that. You would give me and the other types of five G. THAT AT and T. Mobile, and now verizon are offering has just mostly been barely faster than existing speeds like. Ten Twenty thirty megabits faster. But that really also hasn't. Hasn't done anything for me and it might be a little more negligible when you're streaming something outside or when you're. Just watching videos at home as well on your five g connections. That of your Wifi I, Dunno I just basically have had really much use of five Ju just yet but I do think in two to three years when it's a rolled out a good deal more that's when people should really start thinking about buying and making sure that the phone that they buy has five G. Right now if you're. Feeling pressure to buy a five phone I. Think just you know just. To the side if the phone that you want has five that's scrape go ahead and buy it but I wouldn't say you buy her phone to phone just because you feel like you're missing out because you're Julian I have this vision of you standing under a you the awning of a specific coffee shop in New York City where there happens to be five g service like holding up two phones one, four, G. Five G. you're downloading some applic- fortnight. Just, to see what the differences in download speeds and like having a just a minimal difference. I felt like a hacker 'cause I had testing a five G. Laptop and I was on my bike and I pulled up my backpack around used it as like arresting Pat and I pulled out a laptop and here I am on a street corner in New York typing with my laptop on my bike as if I am controlling the traffic lights in the Italian job or something. Mister robot. What about battery life and this is a question for both will in Julian what do we at this point about how five G. is going to affect our phones battery lives? I think actually there's there's a lot of outstanding questions according to the experts I've spoken to they really. Think they're big questions over how much five G. is going to suck down the battery life. So it was kind of interesting application with these software solutions to mitigate that thing is probably a very good idea but I think it's still a quite an open question for the most part. A lot of the for makers are just stuffing huge batteries in the phones. So you know I also haven't spent all day on millimeter wave five G. so I can't really say but for the most part battery life at the moment is in any dramatically different from what you can currently on a four g phone will what's your best guesstimate for when five G. might actually Matter have an impact for consumers here in the US. Put me on the spot. I mean. I think he's going to be a matter of years really before it. It's really making a big difference and. He's probably GONNA sort of creep up a little bit as as fix the saying that. I think people not going to buy these phones for the five G.. They might then start using it and so hopefully, that will kind of encourage more network rollout. But yeah, it seems that it's going to take a while. There's so much hype around it and so much talk of it being like this great big thing I think is going to be disappointing for a while yet. AT SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT DISAPPOINTING I see it as akin to the four K. jump in TV's like. Television manufacturers started building TV's that last a really long time and that work perfectly fine HDTV's and they needed to give us a reason to go out and buy a new TV and to buy their TV. So they put four K. in it and all of a sudden every television is a four K. TV even if only ten.

"Mike, yes Lauren Mike, are you going to upgrade your iphone? Well have an iphone. But it has five gene. Yeah, who cares? Let's see if we can answer that on this week's show. Hi Everyone. Welcome to gadget lab. I'm lauren good. I'm a senior writer at wired and I'm joined remotely by my Co host wired senior editor Michael Cholerae. He who does not have an iphone hello from Pixel land. And we're also joined by wired senior associate editor. Julian Chicago to who has like seventeen different phones on him right now. Hey Julie in below my desk has like six phones on right now so. So today we are talking about yet another apple event this week apple announced a new iphone twelve, actually four of them and a tiny smart speaker, and these are the first iphones with five G. which matters doesn't matter doesn't matter yet. We're GONNA talk about five G. later on in the show what you need to know about it the challenges and rolling it out across the US and whether you'll even be able to connect to five G. With the new IPHONE are calling. We'll night is going to join us later on for that but first, let's talk about the phones themselves. Jillian. Phone has championed edges. Let's get that out of the way. That's probably the most important thing here, right? Okay. But obviously, there's more than that what stood out to you most about the new iphones twelve as someone who takes a lot of photos and tests the cameras on phones a lot. A. Lot of their camera upgrades. We're the most exciting thing for me and and I really like how a lot of those camera upgrades are kind of for the most part. All across the entire lineup from the 699 iphone twelve mini, you're getting the same main camera that they improve the aperture on as the iphone twelve pro. But for the most part that iphone twelve pro, you get these new features like pro raw, which gives you the ability to edit. Raw photos and also get the benefits of apples, computational photography, and that is just someone something that's really exciting for someone who takes a lot of raw photos with my camera just gives you more granular control over photo editing and also the other thing is they're bringing night mode to every single lens that's on this phone. So finally, you can take a Selfie, at night and not have to worry about it being too terrible, looking or grainy. So overall I think the entire suite of camera features on the entire range is pretty exciting and pretty dramatically better than what you had last year on the iphone eleven. And tell us about some of the video improvements to yes. For the improvements, they added the ability to shoot HDR with Dolby Vision, which is you know apparently the only phone that can do this and basically lets you get this program cinematic looking effector or look. You could say with all of your videos at ten bits of it's like super high quality. It just looks really good. With the option to edit the colors and have really good cinematic looking video as well with the iphone twelve pro you there have this improved stabilization system that moves the sensor itself. So basically, in fact, you're getting something that feels and looks much more high quality than ever before, and again, this is somewhere where apple leads compared to every other phone manufacturer except maybe Samsung is pretty close. No one else does the ability to shoot video quality this well, and it's just every year. It just seems to be getting further and further away from other companies even like you. Google. Pixel phones that take really great photos Mike what did you make the event? You know my favorite thing that I saw this week was the mini, the small phone small phones in general are exciting to me. Our colleague Brian Barrett wrote this week that the arrival of the iphone twelve mini is a harbinger of good for the small phone community I think you know fabulous when they came out what was it like eight years ago or so we started seeing these gigantic phones and then. People really liked them and they started them in huge numbers. So phones just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger. We've all been waiting for phones to get small again, phones have gotten smaller, but they haven't really gotten small enough, and now this year I think phones are starting to get just about small enough to satisfy the people who are looking for small phone I was out last week two weeks ago at A. Socially distanced event and I saw a guy with a Sony experience x to compact, which is like a really tiny. It's even smaller than the iphone mini android phone and I asked him about it. I went over to him six feet away and I said, Hey, what is that and he started going on and on about it and the way that he was talking about it was so passionate and I realize that. Like okay. You know what? There is a huge market. People are really really passionate about smartphones and people are GonNa flip when they see the mini I think coming until November So I, think for people who really want it. They're going to have to resist clicking that buy button for a couple of weeks and what apple has done is satisfied both ends of the market you're describing because the iphone twelve pro Max. Boy. That's a mouthful that has the largest display ever on an iphone. So if you are a big fan, you're going to have a six point, seven inch diagonal display with that one I believe, and then there is this many phone which I think a lot of people are comparing to the iphone se that was launched this spring but this is actually smaller and you're not really sacrificing much like you're not getting a lesser camera or a lesser chip you're getting the latest chip and as Julian pointed out almost the same feature set not entirely but close to the same feature set across off four iphone twelve. One of the things that I felt as I was watching this event. In. We'll have to see if if both Julian and I feel this way after actually using the phones for a while is that I feel like increasingly the phones themselves don't matter as much anymore. Like, we are going to talk about five G. and how much that matters right. But let's just put that aside for a second I think there's a lot of movement happening right now in the smartphone market in lower priced or mid range phones and apple is going to continue to put out very high end phones because they use it as a vehicle for. New Tax rate they're trying out like new chips and stuff like are and in these high-powered cameras. But I think ultimately people like right now we're kind of looking for deals and I think many people are going to gravitate towards the more basic models just like the iphone eleven and the iphone Ten are have done pretty well over the past few years I think in general, the smartphone market is pretty mature right now and like the goal is just to. Have people using your services like having a phone that people will use because they're going to subscribe to things are GonNa Stream things that are gonNA use your creative software. They're gonNA use up more cloud storage which could possibly happen with raw photos. And like that's. GonNa Drive. I think apple's business increasingly in the future versus like let's have the small percentage of customers who by the fourteen hundred dollar phone with this lineup this year I do want to point out that it looks like they're finally bringing all of their computational photography expertise into every single device, which previous years it felt like they were kind of gate keeping it for the higher end models. But because it software, you know basically like Pixel phones, you can get really good images by just putting that software out on all your different model. So even the IPHONE. Twelve mini even though it costs so little it can get the same smart hd are improvements as the iphone twelve pro Max, for example. So I think that's something that would be really interesting to see as well as if they ever have an iphone se in the future having something at that price point with the ability to have the same computational photography expertise as the higher end models that cost thousand dollars that would be something that's really exciting and really really cool to see apple bring down to across all different phones that they had different price points. Before we before we break, we should talk about the home..

"The cracking of the San Bernardino phone in two thousand sixteen proved that federal law enforcement wanted into iphones and and that they were willing to pay for it to the tune of one million dollars and with that kind of price tag. Some people sensed an opportunity entrepreneurs stepped in in and in two thousand sixteen a company called Grey shift was founded grey shift employed at least one former apple security expert and and their mission was to hack the IPHONE. It took gray shift a few years to figure this out but by the spring of two thousand eighteen. The company was ready to Demo. So it's new product. It was a small black box about the size of a jewelry box. They called it. The Grey Kitty. Yes so I was down in Myrtle beach at a forensics conference. And as far as I know this was the first public demonstration of the great heap. Gray shift had picked it audience. Wisely as Louis Bob says the conference room was filled with law enforcement. Detectives cops all the law enforcement. Investigators who for years have been just like totally frustrated by apple's inability to give them data this company shows up and they say we have away in the gray gray shift executive pulls out an iphone and this kind of black box device. That has a white cable plugs into the IPHONE. He hits a button in and it begins the extraction. Normally if you tap too many wrong passwords into an iphone if freezes it could make you wait five or fifteen minutes before for you can try another password. Some iphone users set up their phones to erase all of their data after ten wrong tries but the gray key turns off that protection action mechanism. So that the little box can try entering thousands of passwords in a row. The exact way that it's able to do this they don't tell you but if if I were doing it I would start with a certain number of known popular pass keys like one two three four five six six five four three two one or something like that. You can take days or months to get the correct password depending on how the phone set up the phone and the demo has six digit password and within thirty minutes it had unlocked the phone and then once the phone was unlock. It's just took seconds really to start downloading all of the data that was available on the phone. You could just feel the relief in the air as it cracked into this phone. The sense of amazement in the audience that there was finally you know. Promise promise for them to to be able to get data off of these devices to be able to move their investigations forward after years of not being able to do it in the past two years grave shift has sold old products to the US Bureau of prisons the Drug Enforcement Administration the IRS and the FBI the FBI has spent over a million Leeann dollars on grave shift products and a million dollars can buy a lot of tech. And how much is one of these devices. Will starting price fifteen thousand dollars. It's pretty cheap. It's cheap enough that a county investigative office can afford it and could i. I buy one like can individuals by these boxes. No that's part of what was brilliant about their business model was they only sell to. US law enforcement and it was something that they were taking very seriously the security of this device I remember there was an armed guard next to it at all time to make sure that you know wouldn't get taken and this is at a conference like filled with cops right so gracious only sells to US law enforcement but not all of its competitors operate this way way another company that popped up to crack. Apple's iphones isn't Israeli company called NSA group facebook recently sued NSO Group for selling a hacking service that facebook says was used to illegally spy on fourteen hundred. What's APP users in response to that lawsuit? NSO Group said it sells its software to governments on the condition that they use it only to target spies criminals and terrorists but according to a research group called citizen lab over one hundred activists and journalists were targeted last year by a hacks using NSO group technology. Thanks to all these new products in companies investigators finally had away into iphones and ushered in. What some experts? Call the Golden Age of IPHONE investigations. I I spoke with an investigator Gwinnett. County Georgia who put out the call in early twentieth eighteen when he obtained one of these great he devices devices and he said. Listen if you have an investigation that stymied because you can't get onto an iphone bring my office and we'll see what we can do. By the end of the year he had dumped data from three hundred phones. How aware do you think? Apple's consumers are of this vulnerability. Nobody no other. They're completely unaware unaware of this. Like no no consumers have no idea that that this is all going on. And what about Apple. What did they think about these companies cracking into their products? It's a love hate relationship. It's more hate than than love admit. Love is probably not even the right word. It's a it's a hate tolerate relationship. Let's say so apple hates having security flaws in its devices right. They've bet the company on Security and privacy and when there's a bug found found especially when they can't patch that's an embarrassment to them so these companies are basically making their living on finding stuff. That apple is is ashamed of but it keeps law enforcement off their back. It sure does you know. And they have to be cognizant of that right like there's a way for law enforcement to get in if they really me too but it's not so easy that they're just doing widespread surveillance. It's not so easy that they're abusing it. There is a way in which this is a better situation for apple than it was a few years ago in a statement this week. Apple pointed out that law enforcement today has unprecedented access. To Data uh-huh quote Americans. Do not have to choose between weakening encryption and solving investigations. Apples navigated this fine line. Ever since San Bernardino law enforcement can get into iphones but apple is an on the hook to compromise users data. That uneasy truce is what Attorney General Bill Bar. You're upset on Monday so going back to the AG. In the Pensacola shooting. If they're all these IPHONE cracking services out there why does the FBI need apples help. That is a really good question. I'm not sure if you look at Apple. It seems pretty clear that in in many cases law enforcement is able to get data off of these phones. They're able to get much more data than they were a few years ago but there are going to be cases where they're stymied. Some users have passwords longer than six digits and the longer the passcode. The harder it is to guess for every additional digit. There are ten times more permutations. It's that could be the case with the Pensacola shooters phones from the FBI's perspective. They tried to get on these phones. They were unable to to get the pass code which to be fair. If it's a really complicated Pasco can take a long time to get so. They said they've given it a month and they've brought in outside contractors and they're not able to get it they were able to get it with the five c two years ago but in this case with an iphone five and iphone seven. They say they can't do do it. And far is saying that this isn't good enough. He kind of is going back to the argument from San Bernardino and saying we want in. That's right right now. There's a percentage of phones that they're not able to get data on but there's also a large percentage that they can get data on. So is that acceptable. Twenty sixteen after San Bernardino. The debate was whether the government should get a back door now. The government has a back door in most cases but not on every phone and not thanks to Apple. The question now is whether that Jerry rigged. Compromise is really a solution. Like that's really what the debate I think should be is the status quo that we have right now. Is this good enough to meet the needs of law enforcement. And does it protect the privacy of users and you know it often plays out in these very high stake realms such as terrorist investigations. What's the right call to make when lives are on the line in technology? -nology is an impediment to an investigation after bars comment on Monday. Apple released a statement the company. Nobody said it was devastated by the terror attack and rejected the FBI's characterization that it had not been helpful quote our responses to their many requests since the attack have been timely thorough and our ongoing apple also repeated.

"Thank you so much for debriefing us on everything that happened at apple this week happy to and let's take a quick break and when we come back we'll go through our recommendations all right now. Let's get to our recommendations are ill. Why don't you go first. I'd love to this week. I'd like to recommend the book three women by Lisa Ted Day. Oh this is a new book. It's like all over twitter. Everyone I know is reading it. I saw it on the desk of our colleague John Gras and I said ooh can I borrow that before going this super long plane ride to Denmark and I started reading it when I got on the plane lane and finished it before piloted like it was that gripping it's it's a nonfiction book that follows the romantic lives of three different women and Lisa today. Oh describes it as study of desire among women in America. It's very very intr- it's very unlike anything I've ever read but you basically follow these three characters and they're sort of twisted relationships and by the end you feel maybe maybe a little appalled by some of their behavior but also maybe like you relate some of it I would recommend certainly all women read it. whether or not you end up liking it or relating to it. I think it's still an important piece to read. I think men could probably learn a lot from it as well and it's also just juicy like you get this extremely voyeuristic stick sense of like peering into somebody else's bedroom life I was sitting next to this Danish teen- teenager on the plane and I was like Oh my God oh my my God. I hope she can't read English doesn't know what these words some of its kind of graphic sweet now. What about you learn iron my recommendation. This week is very local. So if you don't live in the San Francisco Bay Area I apologize however if you live in the bay area and you happen to be a fan of nineties indies rock music and who isn't among US I recommend getting your butt over to The Hague Arts Center because there is a fantastic tastic exhibit called the live in two dimensions and it is decades worth of Pearl Jam concert posters. I was really thinking of what I can recommend this week and I'm to be honest. I just haven't been much fun. I've been working a lot but the one thing I did. The one thing I did earlier. This week was go to this exhibit and its creed great. There is just a really great art by artists such as Brad closing and the I think it's called the aims group. I'm beginning their actual company name wrong but there are a lot of artists who did much of the poster design for Pearl Jam throughout the years and a lot of it. A lot of the artwork is has I'm mm distinct political or anti-corporate vibes to them and I've been to some of the shows so it was like cool seeing the shows from the posters from the shows that have been too and yeah like I said very obscure very local. I feel like Mike Making this recommendation. Actually you have become my oh my gosh ah yes no the band would have to be way more obscure might give it have to be like Swedish prog rockers something like that Swedish psych pop whatever it is how to in how did this. I don't know goes he the Pearl Jam Poster Exhibit. If you're in town awesome yeah I'm GonNa read the book and then go see the art. Show okay I I would like to recommend a podcast this week and it's a podcast that I've recommended before it's called loss notes and it's a show usually about half an hour forty minutes worth of show from KCRW w the big NPR station in Los Angeles I've recommended it before because there was the first season and now there's a second season and the second season I feel you like is the show is really hitting stride. There's a new host. Her name is Jess Hopper. She's an author and music writer. She has really great stories to tell you about mm elements of the music industry in the music world that you probably are unaware of it's sort of like like liner notes sort of format where they give you a history if somebody and they sort of chart their story and then they tell you a little bit about their lives and what happened in their careers and often it's told through the voices of the musicians themselves this season in particular. There's a whole episode about John. Fahey of the avant-garde Guitar player that's told through the eyes and by the stories of the people who lived David with him throughout his life which is really amazing. There is a story about the band fanny which was like a stadium rock band in the seventies made up entirely of women that history has largely forgotten like nobody's sorta fanny but you hear their story and it's really incredible in one thousand nine hundred nine a fan wrote a letter to Rolling Stone in magazine who was advocating for one of his favourite. Bam's he wrote one of the most important female bands in American rock has been buried without a trace and that is family there is also a great half an hour interview view with Suzanne CIONI. The electronic music pioneer from the sixties and seventies got rich and advertising and her story about how she broke into the advertising industry like literally broke into the industry. I won't give anything away you have to listen to it fascinating highly recommended loss notes from KCRW It's a great commute podcast. 'cause it's about as long as this one about forty five minutes fantastic. I really want to listen to that. Read the book and then go to see the art show and take a long flight like to Denmark plan. We'll thanks everyone for listening to this show.

"It's it's new mobile hardware namely three new iphone models a new IPAD and a new Apple Watch and welcome to the Steve Jobs Theater Lauren. You were down there on Tuesday at the building looks like a giant space doughnut. I'd like to start by asking you to set the scene for us. What does it feel like to attend one of these events just to like walk in and sit there and how it all happened right in front of you. It feels different but in order to say it feels different. You have to sort of have a sense of how it used to feel this is not the first event that's been held at the Steve Jobs Theater which is relatively new and so being at that theatre is kind of unique experience because it has like giant space donut as you said it's. It's this really some people. Call it the spaceship. It's this huge circular building. It's up a hill. I mean the the grounds are gorgeous. The building itself is all glass and marble and you go down the stairs these marble stairs into the Steve Jobs theater where the leather seats are like nicer than any seat. You would seen a luxury via a coal. It's it's like a really kind of crazy nice experience but when I say it's different I mean the tanner. I think of the events are different than they have been in the past several years. I'm going to talk about this a little bit more. We'll put a pen in this but I just think that the overall excitement levels feel a little bit muted from what they maybe used to be around these new hardware announcements that's interesting. I think we should unpack that but but just to sort of explain this is the event where every year apple unveils the iphone and indeed the star of the show this year is the iphone surprise surprise in fact there were three new iphones the iphone eleven the iphone eleven pro and the iphone eleven pro Max where where should we even begin well as I like to joke I think by the time you say the words eleven iphone eleven pro Max. A new one is already out. It's a really lengthy term but I guess we should probably start with the iphone eleven because I find that to be the most interesting so it is the iphone eleven in fact when it was first revealed we were all live blogging thinking okay so is this is this the phone but then they flash the price point which is six ninety nine and announced that the iphone ten are which is last year's model is now selling five ninety nine and you realize okay there has to be more apple sleeve because they've been pushing the cost and the average selling prices of these phones up and up and up over the past few years so so the iphone eleven. I think is the phone that most people are going to be interested. Gordon because it is a really friendly price point for such a high end phone is iphone eleven the next generation of iphone. It is jam packed with great new capabilities. It has one more camera lens on the iphone. Ten are had last year so now it does portrait effect photos. It can do them a little bit better better because it has the depth. It's a whiting eleven. An Ultra Wide Angle Lens twelve megapixel for those who are interested in the details pushing right right listening uh-huh. It's got a row rather large battery. The form factor is a little bit larger than the iphone. Ten ten S and whatever is next now the pro so so you get more battery life which I think is appealing to a lot of people one of the sacrifices you make is that it has an LCD screen and not an old led display but a lot of people don't care about that in his comes in cool new colors so so I think this is going to be the one that interests a lot of people were like what I'm not. A quote Unquote Perot spent eleven hundred dollars in a phone then you get into the category and that's where apple gets into like the classic differentiation so yeah what is up with pro in the name like I am. I can only imagine how a pro iphone I phone user thinks of themselves. World Michael there are those of us who are amateurs those of us who do this for a living Brian Barrett Eric Jokes in our live blog that the iphone eleven is then the iphone amateur and the other ones are pro then you know what's this one like. Oh iphone. I would've gone pro if I it didn't have any surgery at a later point though in marketing to professionals given that so many professionals rely on mobile phones to do their jobs like if you even think about this entire category of people who's making a living on Youtube or instagram or even those of us who aren't making a living on it but consider that a big part of our identities eighties right like taking really good quality photos is more important now than it has ever been before and so marketing to people who may be do use their iphone to like like take the the instagram worthy shot that makes them a bunch of money from their influence. Our business actually kind of make. Some kind of weird twisted sense yeah. I think there are a few levels that in the first is when you actually consider the word professional you are correct it as somebody who makes a living off of doing what they're doing so by saying this is for pros. It begs the question. What the pro is that an aspirational term. Is that something that actually applies and I think you're right in that. They're talking to people like the Marcus Brownies of the world tastic you know youtube reviewer and has built his business off of this and also appears to be a great frisbee player but that's besides the point and and like that's someone who they're like. They're probably thinking like someone like this makes his business off of this. So how do we cater to that person and they have aspires to be that person well. That's exactly fleet. They have to do that. Delicate marketing dance and it's so apple to do this. We're not to come out explicitly. Say it's for that person but to just kind of leave pro out there as this nebulous the idea that like a real you could be a pro. I mean you could be you have eleven hundred dollars to burn you want the fancy best camera you up your game on instagram like you could be the pro- and then they end the May bring it to the next level which is and now director so and so is going to shoot his movie and I absolutely love it. They crack me up because they'll show the director being rolled around on a Dolly with professional lighting and like see stands and like the lighting alone probably cost seventy thousand dollars most often. They're like an iphone I the person's like peering into this tiny little iphone view-finder and like you imagine the DP tapping the screen to focus and then looking at the daily isn't being like what is this crap so so yeah they create these like multiple levels of well really means and so they wanna make it for like a certain segment segment of people but also for everybody so what is it in particular that you get from the top of the line phone the pro Max you get a better our camera. That's the big difference between the regular pro- and the Max pro besides obviously the bigger screen the bigger size bigger battery all better battery life. I think they're claiming up to five five hours more battery life than you would have gotten on the larger model last year and the camera so you're getting you're getting well. Actually I don't think there's much of a difference between the eleven WPRO in eleven pro Max camera but both of those cameras are differentiated from the eleven by extra an extra camera Lens. Let's talk a little bit about the Apple Watch Is there anything interesting there to to talk about well on some level. What apple has done with apple. Watch series five is make it work like every other watching the universe. It shows you the time all the time now so they have created this. this display type that. I'm going to watch the name right now but it's something like a low temperature. Turn polysilicon monoxide anyway yeah exactly you can go like this but basically they. They created an always on display. low energy always on display has variable refresh rate so when it's in use it might go up to sixty hertz when you're not using it and I go down to one hurts and that's what saves the battery life and they have they say it's the first in the industry like this and so now the Apple Watch still has a display but it's always on and it's pretty nifty because other companies have done this before with wearables. GARMON comes to mind garment is known for having this transformative. LCD display where it's always on so you can always see the time by the way in Garmon battery life is great but apple things like Dave managed to accomplish something because they've now done this with Oleg and they're still claiming the same battery life of eighteen hours but that's really like and then there's a new casings but that's really like the the only new thing so besides the phones and the watch apple also showed off a new I've had it gives them details around the two of its new services Apple TV plus it streaming service and Apple Arcade. It's gaming service but Lauren you mentioned that the sort of excitement around the sum total of these these products was was low. Yeah it did feel like there was a little bit less excitement this year and that may be because iphone sales are slowing and it's just harder to get excited about each a new one. It may be that some of the folks in the room myself included have been to lots of these events before and a little bit the same after a while but I think Charlie Warsaw Soul from the New York Times did a good job summing this up in his column this week about the overall tenor and maybe tone deafness of these events he you called it a love letter to consumerism in sort of painted a picture of how all of these these you know Whiz Bang Wow look at these shiny new thing tech events are happening against the backdrop up of some pretty serious issues going on in broader society in the world is a different place than it was eight years ago. The world is a different place from the time time when Steve Jobs I announced the iphone in two thousand and seven the world is just it's completely changed such a relatively short period of time and so I now I think when and people are out of events like these are not just thinking about. Should I get the new iphone I mean shouldn't necessarily just be thinking about that should be thinking about issues of sustainability the treatment of employees and contractors of these companies around the world things that are going a macro economic issues and trends tariffs threat of recession all of these things things that are sort of. I mean inequality equity like some people can afford iphones and some people can't afford to pay rent in San Francisco. You know like like there's all these things that are sort of feeding our brains right now and a lot of uncertainty and instability in the world and so I think it does feel a little bit like you're in this warp or something when you're in this dark room and he's executives are like trotting out on stage and like showing look at these amazing photos of these models who took Allahu like life is grand and sometimes it just just doesn't feel that way. It's it's an infomercial. It's an hour and forty five minute long infomercial and we watch it and we report on it because it's it sets sets the tone for the entire consumer electronics or sorry the entire mobile consumer electronics industry for the next year but I mean it's like walking into Disney Liane ice because it's big and it's expensive and it's full of pageantry and a lot of ood on moments but there you're right. There's no mention engine whatsoever of anything. That's happening outside that room very rarely does the real world sort of creep into one of those events when it does it's usually dressed at the very beginning and they've addressed it and then they move on in like okay now. Show us the merchandise and it's becoming even more obvious to us every year as the world burns down on everywhere else outside the Steve Jobs theater in Silicon Valley right right and maybe you know maybe apple executives know something we don't maybe they just know there's a portion of the population that is not going going to care about these broader issues it stock was doing just fine the following day and if there is anything that you could say about apple that it manages to deliver these products with an amazingly mazing. Lee Precise consistency that few other companies have managed to achieve and so I think you know investors that and they're like crate. They're still delivering hardware. That's what we're excited sighted about. We know they're going to sell and they know they're going to sell so they're going to hear US talk about this stuff and like maybe it's GonNa go in one ear and out the other but I agree with you and I grew Charlie and some others who are noted at at that he's event and actually Chiro vide has also written as you know a couple years ago. She said like Buzzfeed has written about this anyway. It's time to really reconsider the tenor of these events ans- Well Lauren..

"GonNa have plenty of those. I was there but first. Let's the news and then we're going to talk about. All Things Apple Mike. Do you WANNA go. I I will yes I have some news about the GIG. Economy California is close to instating new law that would seek to classify GIG economy workers is is employees and not contractors this bill which is known as California Assembly bill five or a B Five has passed both the state assembly and and the Senate and as of the time. We're recording the show a governor. Gavin NEWSOM is getting ready to sign it into law. Oriane Marshall has been reporting on this story of less few the weeks and she has a story this week on wired. She says in her story that Ab five reaffirms a two thousand Eighteen California Supreme Court decision that established established a three part test to separate independent contractors from employees. It's mouthful. since employees are eligible for protections like minimum wage health care worker's compensation this new law would greatly increased labor costs of all of the companies whose workers pass that three part test now dow three part test is a worker is only a an independent contractor if she is not under control the direction of the company while she's working to if her work is outside the usual course of the company's business and three if she is customarily engaged in the same kind of work that she does for the company so to use. Uber as an example if the company is forced to classify it's California drivers as has actual employees than it would see a twenty percent increase in its operating costs in the state which is a huge Ding on a company that lost five billion dollars last quarter alone. Uber and lift of course are fighting back. The two companies have collected sixty million dollars to support an effort to get a new more favourable for them. Worker classification measure on California's has twenty twenty ballot so the argument that Uber keeps coming back to here is that it's not a transportation company with contractors. It's actually technology technology company which means that. It's drivers are customers of its technology. Yes that's that's what they're saying. So how will that hold up in court well. There's already precedent that it won't a federal judge already said in one of these hearings that Uber is a technology company their argument is that they make an APP. That's all they do. They just make an APP that hooks up clients with customers their platform the the judge skull them and said you are as much a technology company as yellow cab as a technology company because yellow cab just uses CDs and a dispatcher to connect clients with customers so you. You can't claim that you're not really a transportation company well. We'll have to see how that plays out. I think it's safe to say that very few people are rooting for Uber here. We're so we'll have to see how the judge feels. It's also going to be a big test their lobbying efforts over the next year because we're going to be voting on this in November of twenty twenty here in California well speaking of platforms. The era of likes in Re tweets and favorites on social media is over not really not really but a growing number of platforms are experimenting with what I like to call de metrication or removing the metrics wchs from social media posts so twitter has been running some tests since about march on a little tea twitter. It's prototyping up to see how tweets would look if they didn't have have likes on Instagram also begun testing this in six countries though not yet in the United States and facebook is rumored to have its own de metrication tests coming down the pike there some sort of clever reverse engineering of the facebook APP which showed that something like this is is underway. This turns out to be really controversial rate so there are a lot of people like myself who believe that. D- metrication is one of the only ways we can dig ourselves out of the hell hole. That is social media. Yeah I personally de Medicate all my platforms. Thanks to some handy. US Tax and I think it's a much much better way to be online but the platforms are really really wary of how this might affect their bottom line. not to mention lots of people now make their living on platforms like these so when Youtube made a change to the way it displays glazes subscriber counts now rounds them up rather than displaying the precise figure of how many people subscribed to a particular count lots of youtubers with big followings got. I angry because that affects their business model right. It affects how they get paid at the end of the day it also affects cancel culture and being able to see who's losing subscribers rapidly happened so you can expect instagram it will deal with very similar backlash from its influence or community if it removes things follower counter likes on facebook of chorus which is the biggest of all of these platforms will no doubt deal with some controversy as well Arielle. Do you get the sense that these companies are thinking about. Maybe recreating some type of bifurcated system where professionals who use the platforms have a different experience than regular people who are posting photos of their lunch because I would think think like it's still a little outdated thinking about these social media platforms just these social tools that we post to our mundane lives and and like like sometimes make us feel bad when in reality there are these hugely influential platforms the collective billions of people on them and they're they're in some ways usurping traditional media models in our how we get our media how I mean how would they be to the point of the influencers not liking this like. How are they actually handle that. I don't think anyone has good answers. There's at this point right. I do think it's a smart suggestion though to create some kind of bifurcated model or or even just a toggle where you could tuggle off the numbers and then toggle them back on we've seen similar things with for example twitter finally allowing people to view the feed chronologically like that's an option right. You can can still view it. Algorithm Mickley if you want but they're saying a lot of people have a better experience when they view the feet in this particular way now. We're giving you the tools to do that. You can still use all of our you. You know sort of algorithm genius if you want but you know have the experience that's meaningful to you and I think you could do a similar thing with D. Metric Henry could say like listen. A lot of people want this. A lot of people don't but there's no reason why we couldn't make it possible for both types of people well. I fully admire your commitment to deem metric. Defying your your social media accounts. I think that's how you say it all right. You should still follow me on twitter though I do everything wholeheartedly faith okay so you'd think in this day and age we all be getting wiser to e mail scams but these types of scams. You know the kind where some rights you a compelling email on. They ask you for personal information. Tell you to transfer your funds those I've ballooned in recent years and they're causing people tens of billions of dollars well the Justice Department is doing something about it our colleague Lilli Lilly Newman from wired wrote on Tuesday of this week that the department announced the arrest of two hundred and eighty-one suspects in connection with email scams and wire transfer fraud this operation abrasion which in the US involved not only the DOJ but also Homeland Security Treasury and the State Department was called Operation rewired not to be confused with wired it resulted resulted in one hundred sixty seven arrests Nigeria seventy four in the US and others in Turkey Ghana and throughout other parts of Europe and Asia most of the scams originating Nigeria yeah but the problem is really have spread all around the world so you might be wondering how this happens especially when most people are pretty savvy these days any answers at scammers have become much more sophisticated kid. Lilley writes about one example in which employment scammers will trick people by quote unquote hiring them and then as part of the enrollment process they ask them to submit sensitive live information or the overpay these people and then they ask for a portion of the money back when in reality they haven't been overpaid or paid at all this also extends into fake romantic metric relationships as well. I don't know if you guys were called but the New York Times of the great story several weeks ago about this these kinds of scams happening on facebook so yeah we're we're not. We're not past e mail scams in twenty nineteen so these people that they arrested. I assume these are like spearheads. These are people who are like may be running a scam ring nor something like that or are these just individual actors. That's a really good question and I'm not entirely sure but it's it's a good question that you raise because you would think that the skills are pretty transferable so if you've got a whole cluster of folks who are working on these kinds of operations and then maybe you you know you arrest the head of one group. Maybe it does something to dissuade others but you know there's still a lot of bad actors to use a term. That's used frequently in the fraud world. There are a lot of bad actors out there and it becomes kind of a game of whack a mole especially when these bad actors are single handedly focused all day long on scamming people people whereas most people on the receiving end of the scammer just kind of going about their daily lives and then get a strange phone call or email or whatever it is and maybe don't have the bandwidth to really you investigators think deeply about what kind of sensitive information they might be. They might be sending over. You know over the wires so so yeah. It's hard to say at this point whether or not arresting a ringleader just a participant in these scams will actually do anything to stymie the larger problem. Wouldn't it be great if just like the. Doj makes this move and then spam. Just stop right. No more Nigerian princes telling me that I need to get my money over no more anything okay well. Let's take a quick break and when we come back Lauren Warren. We'll put you in the hot seat and we'll talk.

"Listeners who want to know more about the smaller details that we're just not going to have time to get into in this episode but overall it does sound like all of these changes to the iphone are pretty incremental. I don't get the sense that these will feel like entirely new products for the average consumer. I don't think so but i think the thing that shouldn't be lost is that apple has has really slowed down a say. It's innovation cycle in terms of design on the iphones in recent years and if you look at the history of the iphones obviously the original iphone in two thousand seven was like nothing we'd seen before then the next year they changed the design with the plastic curve black and white backs of the iphone three g the kept that for the three guests then they came out with the four twenty ten. Nothing looked completely different. I remember being really blown away by by that design. It just felt super new. They used to be new design s year with the same design now. It's basically three years in row. The saint look which i think is one other reasons that people are not upgrading at the same speed that used to coming up how <unk> apple will be changing its other products including the ipod. The watch the macbook air pods and also what this will all mean for the future of apple <hes>. We'll be right back okay so before the break we went through a couple changes coming to the three existing ifo models the tennis the tennis max ten are mark tells about at some of the other products apple's going to be announcing this month. Let's start with the watch yeah so the apple watch got a really really big upgrade last year with the series four four so this year i think it's going to be really minor..

"By the way you can get this chip in a few new phones in here happened to be the phones. Of course, consumers are most interested in the phone themselves because that's the thing that they're going to end up buying. And that's the thing they're going to be using every single day and staring out before they fall asleep at night. Not saying do that. Maybe I do, but really what was most interesting about this year's phones or the internals and that is due in large part to this so called bionic chip? What would you guys say is the most important thing. I think that the t. l. DR is three new phones. One new watch. All of this sort of upgrades to the phones feel pretty incremental. Like if you have the iphone ten from last year, which felt like a huge departure from previous iphones. I think a lot of the features on the iphone tennis tennis Maxon ten are gonna feel very familiar. So it's a lot of. The same face unlock feature that you're used to the same incredible cameras you're used to with with some some minor upgrades. And same with the watch. I think a lot of what's in the the new watches pretty similar to the series three, which also felt like a huge departure in the sense that it had cell connectivity in this incident had these much more robust finished tracking features like the differences are all pretty evolutionary, rather than revolutionary to borrow a phrase from you, Lauren. So yeah, I think I think what you said is absolutely right that it's, you know, a lot of stuff that feels familiar, but that is refined enhanced by these much more powerful chips, which will probably change change the product line going forward from apple in terms of what it's tech is able to do. Yeah, totally. Totally into fair on pretty sure I borrowed that phrase from somebody at some point or I've heard it like seven times before, but. But yeah, I completely agree with you. I think the flip side of that may be is that. While these updates will incremental to anybody who had the iphone ten from twenty seventeen or even has stayed? Well, I'd say just the iphone, ten seventeen. For a lot of other people who are still in phone, sixes, sevens, even aids. These phones are a big jump in. So none of the phones have a home button. They all have that edge to edge display the all have the notch. They all ditched the home button RIP home. So for anyone who's upgrading from an older phone, this actually will fill like a pretty dramatic departure from what they're already familiar with. So last year, like this was the radical redesign and this year, this was apple basically saying, okay, this is the way our phones are. Now, if you're getting a new phone, this is what you're getting goodbye. Home button was nice when we it was nice when we had you. I actually do like the home button. I think a lot of people are going to miss it. I still miss it even though I have phone, I'm trying to think. Let's see if you would. If I used recently, I use the Samsung galaxy note nine. The fingerprint sensor on the back. I've used the pixel two XL and I've used the iphone ten lately. So like in the realm of first world problems, I've been missing a home button from all those phones and and and I do miss it. I miss the tactile feel of it and I miss the home in a lot of ways, especially when you're using authenticate, whether you're using it to buy something, complete a food order or just log onto your Bank or whatever it is fill in the blank. There's something about it does feel like requires less of an interaction. You simply just kind of reach over to wherever your phone is. You gently touch your finger against the home button and it unlocks and everything works like it's supposed to. Whereas the face you have to when you have to engage with the phone, you have to pick it up. You have to hold a certain England front of your face. It does work pretty well amazingly. Well, I would say, but considering what it's doing and what's happening in seconds of time, but it still requires you to just interact with the phone in a way that feels. I feel like I'm still getting used to, to be honest. Totally. It's sad to see the home button go for good..
