"ipod" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN

"When the first iPod came out, not the iPhone. The iPod was before the iPhone. In other words, when you have a digital music streaming player. I was smart enough to understand. That this was the future. On the other hand, I didn't know how they work. I mean, when they just came out. This is when the people who were are the hundreds were over. They bought the iPod. The first day I came out and the next thing you know, they were figuring out I get how to download other music on the thing and getting all these streams set up. I figured out that this was going to be the future. I mean, I just looked at this. I mean, prior to this, that we had received portable CD players, the Discman and before that, Yeah, the Walkman and yet those little cassette tapes in there. Well here these people are they've got all their music and it's on this little thing and there's nothing they carry around. They don't have Carry the music with them, but just somehow, there and in there So I knew That this was the way it was going to go. But I also didn't know anything about how to do it or what were the right product be etcetera. Well, I knew someone at that point. In my life was sort of an early adopter. And she, of course, there's no way that this would be a guy. If you follow this story, and maybe you married people don't understand that There's no way the following person could ever be a guy. This woman decided that I needed therefore, to be immediately moved into the modern era and be given one of these part of a player. See no guys going to do that for another guy. They're just not Well, maybe two gay guys that are married to each other or something, But, I mean, the guy's not gonna like, If you do a guy that didn't have an IPod. You're not going to buy about. You're just not going to do that, right? You might try. You're not going to take anything beyond just shoot off your mouth and then move on to the next day, right? Well, she was hell bent to bring me into the modern era. So she threw up and by the iPad, but after the iPod came out there about nine other products immediately, all made by different companies. Can you name the nine other competitors that came out to the iPod at the time? No. You know why? Because they are about They'll be possible you the one you would come up with is the iPod. It's the only one that lasted. There were all these other portable music players that MP play three players and so on. And she got me. The one That she was convinced after all of a research trip was by far the best one. When I did my downsizing a year ago, That was one of the things I threw away. It was never once used. It was something it never went on to becoming anything. I would say that 99% of the people of that era bought an iPod. They just figured it was the best thing to do. That's the problem or the risk of being an early adopter. You adopt something that turns out to be a bomb rather than simply wait and see which catches on and what's the best thing. You could say that with almost any type of technology, so Now, what is it? Where does the story lead? The story is going to lead to Irish fest. You would think that, like Irish has to be like the most backward kind of place There is. It's hardly there's no think name one kind of tech that exists at Irish fest. There's none there's they try to. There's no technology at Irish fast at all. The stage PS Paul, that technology has been around for 90 years. P a systems. Yeah, Yeah, You're talking to a microphone and you can hear it coming out of a loudspeaker. That's not new. That's better roads. It's as long as you better live. There are there are I don't actually wonder if an Irish fest any of this was on tablets. I've seen the folk dancers walk jump in and out their costumes. This is this good everything at Irish. This could have happened in 1940. So anyway, what time did you go to Irish fest? You know, I went to Irish fest. What are the festival was there to go to? I mean, this is the only one Um I went there yesterday afternoon. They had bad weather Saturday night, but otherwise yesterday was beautiful. I was there in the afternoon. I mean, for a Sunday afternoon appeared very crowded anyway. You go down there to park now? I think you know that most of these parking lots anymore. They don't have people who take your body. Did you know that? Yeah. You. You know, you know why they don't have people who take your money anymore. Same rate. They can't find people to take your body. There's one person who kind of directs you in points, but yeah, that was a woman. She's not taking any money or they could change or anything. You just go ahead and your park. And then what you do is You go to a thing and you put in your credit card into a thing and pipe in what your license plate number is, And I think that they just keep checking to make sure that you're that you're in there legitimately. And so on. That's how it works. All right. So this lot that I'm in your summer fest. It's huge. Paul. It's just It's one of these summerfest lots. It's just huge. It was $15. Every was $15, and it wasn't that far away from the crowds. And I didn't have a prepaid pass. I go in there and I see this line to pay with their You know, there's one credit card key. Ask where you stick your card in and enter the thing. And this line. Everybody's got a different no shit Outlines. What's your idea of a long line? 15 15 minutes. How many people Yeah, I ball up the line and they're waiting to pay by credit card. What strikes you? What would you say that lines to log? 30 people. Oh, my goodness. Uh, I'd be like four. There's four. Oh, my God is four people are lighted, but plus, you know that they're none of them are going to know what they're doing, and it's not going to be easy and it's going to take forever, right. You'll admit it to 20. Well, I throw about eight just said there's uh well that no, they know that their anti size this up And the woman who is directing your in and put so and she points. If you don't want to pay, you can just scared and there's there's one of those. I don't even know what you call it. It's not a barcode, but you know the things that you scan for for an app. What do they call that? What's the term for that? It's not a U. P C code, but it's this. It's the scatting thing for that. There is a name. Yeah, I know it's here. There everywhere. That's why I can't believe I don't know what the name is C now this question that we actually need help from the The Karens in our audience aren't going to actually help us out with information that we do need to have the Pick that photo.

It is so thin but had the had the stainless steel back on the original original ipod nano and then of course iterative over time but the original. I apply now. Got all scratched up on back. People got upset and it was one of the ones where the battery was. Dying fairly rapidly because they made it so thin back when i had to repair shop going every we will come in with their ipod.

"So we've been falling podcasts in history for hobbyist since two thousand fifteen are very episode episode two we inserted the segment. And i don't think we've had more than three episodes sense twenty fifteen without the download. So we've been talking about the industry for over five years the thing with the industry today versus where it was in two thousand fifteen is. There's a lot more money into it. And why is there more money. It's because podcasting is now mainstream with it. I'd casting as mainstream. Everybody knows what podcast is. Everybody can get podcasts on their smartphone. Everybody knows how to download the podcast award. They can find out really quickly or they probably listen to a podcast and didn't even know it so it is infinitely easier to consume podcasts into except podcasts than it ever was before you don't have to go to your computer download an episode. Put it on an ipod. Take your ipod into your car with some sort of connection kit and listen to it on the car. Listen to the headphones now. You have bluetooth headphones with your smartphone with active noise cancellation that just fit in your ear without any cords. I mean it's so easy compared to what it used to be. And yes there's primarily there for music but you can listen to podcast that way as well and because of that. There's a lot more advertisements that have come into the show so a lot more into the pod space so there's a lot more corporate entities that have entered in you have things like pandora and spotify luminary tried it a little bit. You have amazon coming on again. I guess for the second time with a podcast division. You you all these corporations that want their stake in

"We should do is just let steve tells about q code beginning and then we'll drag him back to premium podcasting topic. So why don't you give us the four one one on what you're doing over your code. What will share. Thanks guys So yeah i code I'm chief strategy. Officer code really specializes in immersive scripted. Fiction podcast so these are fully sound design scripted shows that often have you know amazing stories ayla celebrity talent and are produced in a really high technical level We mix master at dolby. Atmos and do some really cool things in the audio for listeners. Who haven't experienced fiction before these are shows that kind of hearkens back to the old radio days You know war. The world's is an apt analogy to what people are familiar with. But rather than using the sort of old techniques of production coconuts and wash words and those kinds of things. These are producer really high level and an amazing listening experience. Something that really is a great addition to everyone's like diverse podcast listening experience actions in trying to do something a little bit different. You know prior to joining code. I spent a long time at apple. where i did editorial partner relations and marketing on apple podcasts. Before that i actually still worked in podcasts but in apple's education group where i worked on. It jew which was a you know an educational podcasting platform with college courses and lectures and those kinds of things as well. That's all been folded into the apple. Podcasts platform now that the whole educational side. I mean how important i- i'm just curious. How important is the educational side to to apple. As far as working with the universities. I know back then. They're working pretty closely with like stanford and a lot of the big big colleges. Is that still going on you. Know yeah i mean look. I wanted to obviously be really careful and all of our conversation to make it clear like i'm not. I'm not speaking on apple behalf. And so i ask How important is it. It's it's hard for me. Sort of provide that kind of answer. But you know what. I would just say as you know what was exciting about. It you in the project that they had there it was. It was a project that really saw the opportunity and mobile learning the very early days. So this this project started back in two thousand and six. I wanna say it was not too long after podcasting itself really started and it was the result of you know apple and duke university thinking about how the ipod the original ipod could be used in mobile learning.

The Art of Business Wars: Positioning

"Second. Happy friday everyone all week. We've been bringing you stories based on the lessons in our new book. The art of business wars which comes out on april thirteenth. If you haven't heard the episodes we earlier this week you may want to check those out. I today's lesson from the art of business. Wars is positioning. The skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible. That's pro tip. From chinese general sons in his text the art of war and in war as in business if a company can find advantageous position in the market and stake. It's claim their success will likely follow someone who knew a thing or two about successful market positioning the late apple. Founder steve jobs in nineteen ninety two after jobs had been pushed out of his own company. Apple rolled out the newton message pad sort of virtual calendar and address book. Remember that the newton gained a devoted following but when jobs returned to the helm of apple in nineteen ninety seven. He promptly cancelled the product. Why well during the years jobs was away from the company apple had lost. Its distinct position. Apple had initially succeeded because it positioned itself as a maker of personal computers not business machines like then dominant brand ibm but with jobs away. Apple put out product after product until it wasn't entirely obvious what the company actually stood for when he returned jobs knew he had to make sacrifices to clarify apple's position as a maker of personal computers so he slashed several products until only four computers remained suddenly apple had regained its focus accompanies position must evolve with the market however jobs knew that by two thousand one apple was ready to take more risks. So jobs introduced the ipod and then six years later. I bet you know where this is going. The iphone came on the scene and it became a cultural phenomenon. Now the success of the iphone wasn't a given especially because research in motion already had pocket-sized communication device in the market. Remember the blackberry. Or i am had successfully positioned that device not as one that would be wildly popular with everyday consumers but as a necessary product for business people the only one secure

The Music of World Showcase in EPCOT

The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station

The Music of World Showcase in EPCOT

"If i say the music of epcot what's the first song that comes to mind. Probably something from future world and as we covered extensively back on show six nine six ten future world has background scores and attraction and so show themes that not only. I think resonate with us but are enjoyed by us beyond just our time in the parks. They are on our playlists and in our ears when we drive run exercise. I'm obviously like reaching and assuming those last two or whether we're just relaxing at home but why which is my favorite word. And i think it's probably because so. Many of these songs were created by disney for disney they are original themes built around the theme using the time-tested recipe of what makes disney music so memorable but for the other half of the world. Showcase much of the music is not only traditional but helps to set the stage and represents the culture of the participating nation. And these aren't songs. I think that we would normally associate with a theme park experience. Either that is like if we're talking about walt disney world But some of my favorite songs. That dizzy songs are found in many of these background. Loops of not just future world. But some of these world showcase pavilions and they always seem to bring a smile to my face as they hear them. Whenever or wherever i am and i said on the intro to the epcot show that that the music is very much a melting pot of so many cultures ideas ideals technology and different flavors. And it's a place that you can hear music that is as diverse as the pavilions and cultures and speaking of diverse. I want to continue our musical journey from future world to world showcase once again with friends who helped kick off this musical odyssey so i'd like to welcome back to the show. Lisa denote glasner from the castle. Run and core memory candles dot com to be back. Jason connect from here with the magic and the after our show on the facebooks. Hello it's good to be back with you guys and the one and only zac brown from the one and only the zac brown show. Everybody excited to be here. So i am excited for this. And i'm curious to one because i want to see if hopefully we can beat or not break record long. Our future world discussion was. But i think and i'm curious because we don't talk about this ahead of time how this may differ. Because i think again so many of those future world songs and themes are ones that we can mention by name. Papillon came up again. I think exactly you know if it was a drinking game and papillon was your word. You're in some serious trouble but so much of world showcases different because one. We can't pronounce many of the names the songs they don't necessarily roll off the tongue and they're not one that we might necessarily know by name but we know in terms of how they make us feel and they are there are some pavilions that have themes or some that. Just have background music that we enjoy very quickly. When and they'll round in the same order. When you think of world showcase when you think of world showcase music what is the first song idea pavilion. Thought that comes into your mind for me. I remember when we sat down to do or when was sitting down to prep for the future world. Show i joked that. I've never felt so prepared and so unprepared at the same time for a topic because it was like it was a topic. That's just sort of ingrained in my soul but at the same time i didn't know quite how i was going to articulate it and This show said hold by juice because like the rest of disney right is supposed to sort of insulate you from the rest of the world and i think the unique thing about showcases that it has the opposite job. It's supposed to transport you into the rest of the world. And so while you know so much of the music throughout disneyworld otherwise as supposed to sort of encapsulate you and bring you into this place. You know. the imaginary kind of didn't do their job right right if they did. If that's the result of in world showcase because the point of showcases to make you feel like you're not in central florida. It's supposed to make you feel like you're traveling around the world. As you're walking around world showcase so i don't know if i have a quick good answer to like what song first comes to mind. it i mean i could say something. Easy like golden dream of course. Which is you know sure. We'll talk about that more But now i think it's it's like background stuff. Like le vian rose and like the stuff that green and like that. The the the music that i just associate. Because i'm here. So much with walking around world showcase but at the same time you know like you said in the intro. It's not necessarily music that you're supposed to associate with a theme park. Don't you have a green sleeve. The greens leave story to which will have to get to. Because i remembered crossing the bridge an international gateway with you and i said isn't the screen sleeves using it yet and then you told me a story from your childhood is i am. I am right. I mean who doesn't have a green sleeve story like there's a green sleeve story and i want to don't jump ahead of ourselves but that really from my childhood i whistle. Inslee leaves all the time and it makes my mother crazy. Maybe i was just hoping it was from your childhood. Okay i i mean to answer the question. What's the first song pavilion jumps to mind. It's gotta be mexico and it's got to be the three cobb heroes right like that's got to be no actually. It's not that i think. The the for me world showcase had an anthem and no it can't be eliminations but it had an anthem. It would be basically the soundtrack to impress his france. Of course which. I am super excited about francine far away i know he s- t and wonderful. We'll get there For me it's kind of an unfair answer. I think about the international gateway. It's kind of this. Great little collaboration of everything that you're going to experience it's kind of the coming attractions. You know like lisa said you've got le vian rose and you've got a little bit of music piping in from like the china pavilion and everything just kind of blends and it just sets the overall tone and of prepares you for the pallet. That is in front of you whether it be musical or food you kind of preps you and gets you in the mindset that is world showcase and for me you know if i was to close my eyes and just say world showcases a couple of songs that jumped right to the top but one of them and this is actually a great way for us to begin. I think is. There is a world showcase background loop and being disney enthusiasts that you are. I'm pretty sure. It exists on your iphone or ipod your spotify playlist because this is one of the ones that i think people do have an play when their home or even in their cars or when they're working or walking or just relaxing and while you might not necessarily know the names of the songs if you were to listen through it and serbia following along this. This item list of the music yelich like. Yes inca dance by cousteau. That's my favorite song. Although you wouldn't walk into sam goody's not that there's a sam goodies but go with me here. You wouldn't walk in goodies and say i need incan dance on forty five guys have that. But i love the world showcase loop that you can hear on both entrances to where you could. We'll talk about some of the changes that came about relatively recently but those are some of the songs that i hear that like the future world entrance mentally

Spotify Wants To Sell You CD-Quality Music

"I'm happy to be in your earbuds because today we have a story about sound right now. You're listening to a podcast which means the audio you're hearing has been digitally compressed. The highest highs and the lowest lows of the range of sound. You're hearing have brought closer together. Compression generally make sound a little easier on the ears. Well one company. That deals heavily in sound says compressed audio is so out spotify announced last week that it would be adding an additional service to its music subscriptions lossless audio as in sound in its purest form not compressed which means music has more depth and clarity. If you're struggling to imagine what that sounds like just think back to a bygone era remember cds because they're not usually compressed cds deliver lossless audio naturally and spotify. Says it wants to return to that without you. Know making cds thing again spotify. Hi fi will be available to subscribers in select markets later this year. It'll cost more than the nine ninety nine per month users currently pay although spotify hasn't said how much more they say hi fi will let the most discerning listeners. Experienced the music the way artists intended it. The company is just the latest hop on the lossless audio train or i should say track in two thousand. Nineteen amazon rolled out amazon music. Hd for fifteen bucks a month or a little less for prime members and streaming service title offers lossless audio for twenty dollars a month reports the verge but neither rival comes close to spotify's user numbers spotify counts around one hundred fifty five million paid subscribers worldwide while amazon music. Expect to hit forty million this year and it's estimated that title only has around five million subscribers spotify says its users have been asking for higher quality audio so now that it has it it may spell trouble for spotify's smaller competitors but one big name is notably absent from the list of lossless audio providers. And that would be apple music apple. Subscriber numbers are inching up. They hit a little over seventy million subscribers last year and with roughly the same number of songs available as spotify. It would figure that spotify would wanna keep apple at arm's length hence spotify move towards something. Apple does not have and is reportedly not planning to have a paid tier for lossless music apple and spotify have been dealing for a few years in another space. Which you may be familiar with if you're listening to this right now. yes podcasts. While the term more than a decade ago a mix of its ipod and the word broadcast spotify is looking to be the latest dominant force in podcasting unclear at times exactly which companies doing more in the field. Some reports put apple on top in terms of podcast downloads and revenue others put spotify on top either way each companies looking for ways to edge away from the other when it comes to podcasting and for apple that means toying with the idea of a paid subscription service for its podcast library which has always been offered for free bloomberg reported the plans in january and says apple is also aiming to ramp up its creation of original podcasts spotify. Meanwhile plucked one of the country's top. Podcasts the joe rogan experience and made it a spotify exclusive at the beginning of this year. They also recently announced plans to roll out the spotify audience network which it calls a first of its kind audio. Advertising marketplace advertisers will be able to connect with listeners through quote a broad range of content. Spotify said in a statement. The company says the marketplace will allow creators to earn more for their work while delivering a greater impact for advertisers unquote. Podcast wars aside a lossless music tier four spotify seems to be the latest attempt to get the edge on apple for apple though lossless. Music doesn't seem to be on the horizon at least publicly. In fact apple enthusiasts media outlet apple insider said last week that during blind tests twenty fifteen listeners couldn't seem to discern lossless audio from compressed audio being played on an iphone that might mean lossless music might only be a boon for the most discerning listener.

Jeremiah Owyang - Social Audio Analytics and Constituent Groups - Voicebot Podcast 195 - burst 07

"I want to come back to this idea social audio analytics and maybe the social audio management system this is going to be near and dear to the heart to a lot of the people who listen to this podcast because their space is accustomed to taking raw audio content transforming taxed analyzing it Actually putting it against other services and potentially returning information. So i wanted to explore that with you. A little bit we. We haven't seen that publicly yet and any of these social audio spaces you expect. People are actually doing it today. How do you think that that's going to play out. Do you expect this to be predominantly the platforms are going to try to control it and use this as a feature and trying to block other people or do you think it's mostly going to be third parties coming in and somehow getting the feed whether through direct. Api or from a rogue angle and then being able to provide that data to people who are interested in it. Yes so. I think there's maybe four constituent groups to think about here. Let's try to break this down. And i don't have all the answers here. I'm speculating so there are the platforms themselves twitter spaces and clubhouse and facebook. I think they are so twitter. Spaces already has real time voice to text translation into english which is on the lower third for some speakers. It's a three second delay about ninety percent accuracy. Ucla right yes okay. The second group would be the Government agencies and spies They're probably already doing it. But we'll never know. Group will be the traditional social media Analytics companies like salesforce and adobe salesforce acquired radian six In two thousand eleven ten years ago For three hundred million and their job was to grab all of the text based social media content. That was being produced at a rapid pace and make insights out of it and sell to brands for seven. Figure deals annually on what is being set in their market and give them analysis on share voice sentiment byproduct by region by country by network by individual by they produce. I was involved heavily with that industry now. The fourth group the fourth group i think is the one that will deploy so i. I don't think salesforce. And adobe wanna risk breaking the terms of service against twitter and risk that access that they already have in their. Api I don't think they wanna be scraping that content and also risk privacy concerns especially when a democratic administration is very concerned about privacy when it comes to social media as well as on the right hand side of the government as well they're even more concerned about suppression of so i don't think those big giant tech companies Adobe salesforce and oracle to do an ibm want to do that. So i think it's gonna be the fourth category which will be roguish punkish startups that are going to rip the content off with botts at a recording. The information then conduct voice to text analysis. And then do the other things that i already mentioned with sentiment in mining and influence analysis network. So i think it's going to be done under the covers of darkness fair enough and do you believe that the botts will be listed as users and basically some sort of fake user or are they going to be attached to a real users use. The system could be both. I mean there are. People are reporting data out of social audio by using. You know i rig systems and connecting to their ipod to other systems as well and just you know exporting that data. That's already happening.

How Incorporating Filmmaking into Any Subject Benefits Your Students

"And you teach those courses so can you tell teachers out there. Who maybe don't know this yet. How can filmmaking and media studies benefit our students. Oh my gosh That could take a few hours. I've done day walk but in a nutshell You know really what. I tell teachers when i go across the country or the world and i talked to even pre k. I did some the summer all the way up in university professors well as than at my high school level and mostly i'm talking to the core subjects or the non media teachers and I tell them a few things First and foremost we are teaching an entire generation of students who have never known anything but a device in their hand whether it was a hand me down whether it's something brand new when they were even a year and a half for two years old given an ipad and watch this or an ipod Or some sort of iphone or tablet device. So it's all they've ever known and It's almost like enough when we were taught to write or draw the crayon. That's what we're putting our hand. And these were putting in their hands and so while many don't know all the great things that they can do with it they know how to. At least you know manipulator navigate it so we need to leverage a tool that our students are already familiar west and that tool can take photos imagery and video and graphics and the film making process. i think. sometimes there's a large. It's also a big fear for teachers one because you think of film and television and immediately their minds go to netflix and hulu or whatever the new streaming services and that's the quality that it needs to be and of course that's not what's going to happen with our students nor does it need to secondly What we like to talk about is that will sometimes. There's a fear that while we're going to video record or do a film and that's gonna replace the writing process and you know as well as i do. There's nothing further from the truth that absolutely ninety percent of of a good show or film. It's in the writing. You can have a cast. And if the writing is poor than the the show is poured. And so. When we when i talked to educators and students about that this is going to enhance the writing process from the pre production phase and scripting voiceovers to even the post production phase from critique an reflection and blogging. It enhances it every step of the way. So we're not replacing or enhancing and that's tends to to be a an interesting angle for many. And then i liked to leverage some research that i you know i. I wish i was smart enough to know that. You know so much about the brain but i love to research. That's the journalists man. I love the research. I found some information from forster. This even dated back to two thousand twelve but ninety percent of information transmitted to the brain is visual. And we process those visuals sixty thousand times faster in the brain then taxed and so when i had teachers tell me don you have the fun class will sure i do. Because students are feeling successful. Because i'm asking them to flex that visual part of their brain where they do feel successful and they are able to interpret comprehend information much quicker and so it makes sense to them and then of course as well as i do that. Kids are seeking confidence in their education. And so the filmmaking process. That's just the start of it. Aside from we have a television show that we do at our school and was explaining to my. I just got a new set of students last week. And i told them they'd be learning the television studio and i walked them through it and i said there's going to be about thirteen or fourteen different jobs that you're all going to learn how to do and they were kind of blown away by that and i said you know. Do you know what happens if one of those thirteen jobs fails to do what they're supposed to do. And i just looked at me. And i said well the whole production could fail because what might be the simplest job like it record and now you don't hit record. Will you got to a whole thing over again. You know to sound to direction to describe everything. Every rule that's involved in so that's the great part about it though is that creates teamwork than they. Each have to intricately know what the other is doing and be able to work in concert. It's much like You know a group of singers or theater troupe. They all have to know what the other's doing now. They may focus on there one particular job but they know the importance of that one job because they come together as a team during the production of it but of course on the front end of production face. They're all talking and collaborating communicating to come together for one main goal but then the other beautiful part about it. And then i'll i'll kind of leave. It affects could go on forever. Though is that the film making

GameStop Reddit-rally sends Wall Street tumbling to its worst week in months

"In late January, a handful of unlikely Wall Street stocks began to skyrocket in value. It has led to big market volatility, and that will be the subject of a special meeting tomorrow with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and other government regulators. As Paul Solman reports, the spike in these stocks was driven. By an unconventional group of traders who banded together on a buying spree determined to take on the market for their own reasons. It is the latest in our economic Syriza's making sense. The frenzy. Obviously, this thesis is based largely on the fundamentals, Internet chatters hyping and buying stock and seemingly more a bun companies and you're right. It doesn't make any sense at all. AMC Bed, bath and beyond, and the bubble Gamestop crazy, and we're not as dominant as everyone thinks we are. We know what we're looking for. Is the regular Joes versus Wall ST Joe's using the free app Robin Hood to buy Gamestop, a money losing brick and mortar monger of video game disks that seems obsolete now that games are bought and downloaded online. And yet the stock skyrocketed last month, we're going to try to explain what's been happening with Alex Seamus from the University of Chicago Business School and my grandson show violas 17. So Alex set the scene for us What's been going on? There's people on this platform called Reddit, who decided to buy up a lot off the stock a lot of shares, partly because people hedge funds on Wall Street started short selling it. Okay, before we get into that, Joe, So I remember taking you to game stop when you were younger to buy you video games as kind of nostalgic appeal. Absolutely. And I think a lot of people my age in a little bit older grew up with Gamestop and I'm seeing a lot of people on platforms such as red It were saying isn't bye Bye Bye and Gamestop Two reasons one to make money, and the other was to stick it to the rich elite of the hedge funds. Hedge funds that have been betting against retro games stop by shorting its stock that is Now. In keeping with the retro theme, Alex suggested a retro product to visualize short selling. So here I've got an iPod, which I scrounged from somewhere in my basement, right, so on iPods kind of late game stop, it was very popular in the two thousands. And, you know it's not a bit obsolete because you know everybody's got music on their cell phones. So how do you short sell an iPod? So let's say I'm a hedge fund, and I think that the iPod is worth less than what it's being currently sold for. I go to you, Paul and I say, Can I borrow your iPod? So what I do is I sell the iPod that I just borrowed from you. And then buy it back for the future price. So if the price goes down, I make money because I'm basically getting the difference between that You just want me to lend it to you. I'm gonna borrow your your iPod. And I promise I'm gonna give you a little bit extra money whenever I return it. And to promise contractually to return my iPod by a certain date or whenever I ask for it back, So now you get wind of this short selling Joe. And what do you do? Okay. I grew up with this product. It's got a certain nostalgic value. I'm going to tell lots of my friends on social media may be read it to go out and buy iPod so we can all get in on the trend. What happens to you The hedge fund, Alex so because I Embedding that the price as actually going to go down in the future. If it ends up going up. I end up losing money because I have to buy it for Maura than what I sold it for initially and as you buy it, you're driving up the price even higher. Exactly, And that's what happened with game stop. $18 a share just last month. My grandson bought one share last Wednesday. And what price $293 I want to point out that I did not advise on this trade. I'm thinking that as more people are saying on social media that they're going to buy the value is going to go extremely high. Well is that I want to continue to stick it to the man, these people in Wall Street who have been running everything. And sure enough out on the street. I think it's great that rich people are losing money because capitalism is destroying this world. I look at the whole game stop with stocks is a revenge of the nerds. Kind of attack. This is one of the most complex attempts to coordinate on a single strategy that I think we've ever seen a sort of people's hedge fund says he must coordinating on the Reddit Forum. Wall Street bets. Urging one another to buy with rocket ship Emoji is which is to say, Look, this asset is going to keep going up so everybody should buy and toe hold with diamond hands. We are not going to break. We are going to keep the price up, and there's even a buy and hold sea shanty with diamond hands. They knew they profit if they could only hold But hold on most Wall Street. Hedge funds aren't short sellers. They bet on stock's going up. And in this case, some hedge funds have actually profited hugely from the so called revenge of the nerds, as have Robin Hood's paying customers, big investors, many of them hedge funds, who, by information from Robin Hood, about what people there are trading As for short sellers, are they bad actors? Sure, they bet against a parent losers like Gamestop, but also against frauds like the infamous end Ron, which short sellers helped take down nearly 20 years ago. By exposing its phony

Which Is the Best $99 Smart Speaker for You?

Which Is the Best $99 Smart Speaker for You?

"The three big players in the smart speaker space. That would be apple. That would be amazon and of that would be. Google have released three ninety nine dollar smart speakers. It's a excellent price point to add a smart speaker to your home and we decided to take a look at the top three these competitors and talk about what each of them can provide for you and maybe even try to figure out which one is the best what start by talking about the nest audio arguably the largest of the three smart speakers and i would also say about the heaviest as well. This is a very popular smart speaker. And in fact when google announced at its event the new pixel phones and this nest audio it was the nest audio took the lead on its excitement and what folks had wanted that is because it is i would say arguably a very beautiful device. This is a sort of pillow shaped smart speaker. Which is a little bit different from what you might be used to. I think that that adds to kind of the intrigue of it is not your typical Shaped smart speaker. It's not the echo of past and it is not the orb of the current kind of generation of smart speakers. The audio comes in multiple colors. This nice green color a blue color a black color a white color and a pink color and this one is it's gorgeous it has this nice fabric on the outside which for some people is a little bit of an issue because you might get dirty but the idea is that you place it somewhere and you leave it there and then you don't worry about it talking about kind of what's packed inside. I think that's an important part. You've got a seventy five millimeter wolfer and a nine thousand nine millimeter tweeter. Nine thousand nine millimeter twitter so to sound producing devices. That give you the the output that you want hear this google nest audio also features on the back a mute switch for the mike. That is a physical mute switch. So that way. You don't have any concerns. The devices listening to you or not listening to you can very easily tell and in fact it will make a it will let you know. We'll say the mike is turned on. The mike is turned off. Whenever you flip between these two it also has something that i have found particularly troubling about this device. Which are capacitive buttons for capacitive zones for volume up and volume down. There are three touch areas across the top. One kind of for doing interactions play pause and stuff like that and then volume up and volume down but that makes it so that it is almost impossible to move this device anywhere without accidentally turning up or down the volume and so it's very sensitive at the top and there's also the fact that you know you don't know where you're touching to turn the volume up or turn the volume down which can be an issue and it's also accessibility concern on the back. You have simply won the power option and with the power is proprietary adapter. So you'll definitely want to make sure that you have the adaptor that comes with it in the box and outside of that year that that's it. There are no other ports or anything like that so that is the nest audio first of all. Now let's talk about the echo fourth generation. This is amazon's new orb shaped device instead of being at the top. You have the they call it the alien say ring at the bottom. This is the kind of a bit of visual interaction that lets you know when alien say is listening and also will turn up or turn down the lights will dim and move to one side or brighton and move to the other side to let you know when the volume is up or down the most of it is fabric all of the back of it. Is this plastic area and this is kind of to let you know where you should be facing it so where the nest audio is definitely a front firing speaker. You can very clearly tell that it is meant to be aimed out. You might be confused when you've got the orb so they've made it very clear that the fabric is the acoustically invisible. Fabric is the way that you want to be. This has a one point. Six inch speaker inside and amazon says that this is a much better sounding device than those of years passed on the top. You have a volume up and volume down button. You have a mike mute button and you have a way to trigger alien say so instead of actually having to say the name of your smart assistance you can simply hit that button to communicate with alien say. This is a very nice visual way to know whenever alien say is or is not listening and so hitting that button actually turn the ring at the bottom. Read on the back again. A proprietary charging port as well as a headphone jack or rather a three point. Five millimeter line out. And i want to talk about that because it's not just a line out. It's a three point five. Millimeter line out and line in. So you can use this as a bluetooth speaker you can use it as a way to put music into it over the three point five millimeter headphone jack. And wire or you can use it to pump audio out into a better speakers that you have in your house. So that is something that is unique to the echo that you're not going to get with the nest audio or with the next one. Which is the home pod. I do like these. These actual physical controls on the top. That differ from the capacitive touch options on both the homepod mini and the audio particularly because of the fact that it is more accessible. I can actually reach out and feel those controls as opposed to not knowing exactly what i'm doing now. All of these devices support eight. Oh two all the way up to eight hundred eleven eight wifi so you can get super fast wifi on these devices regardless of which one you go with and then the last one is apple's homepod many now the first thing to note. Is that in comparison to these other ninety nine dollar smart speakers. It is certainly the smallest of the three. This is a tiny little Sort of naval orange sized smart speaker and so one might think that you know. There's not a whole lot going on in terms of audio. But i have found that it is actually quite powerful. Despite the fact that it is small it has a driver and two passive radiators inside to help provide some base in the device and then on top. You've got capacitive touch with the volume up and volume down buttons actually etched into the surface. This appear becomes the area where you can touch to control it now again. No physical touch controls so not as accessible and then when we look on the back yet again there is no way to connect anything to it. You have to use air. Play to be able to play music podcasts etc to this device or communicate with a directly and let it be the the way to communicate now. Interestingly whereas the other two feature the little plugs on the back of the device itself This device the homepod mini comes with a cord and on the other side of the cord is usb c. This is a usb c cable that you plug into the included. Twenty watt charger. Or you can use your own personal. Eighteen watt charger to provide audio to to provide power to this. So let's talk about which one makes sense for you. I'm here is kind of how i look at these. Just just talking specifically about a rather broadly about the different types of devices to kind of how help yourself kind of understand where each fits if you are an android user and you're big in the google camp. Then the nest audio is immediately the winner if you are an apple user and you're big in the irs and mac os and tv os and apple. Tv are the ipod. Os or apple. Watch os then. The homepod mini is the immediate winner. But if you don't fit into either of those camps really and you sort of use some ios devices. use some google devices. Then you might be right in the middle here with the new echo. The fourth generation echo. But things get a little bit more complicated because it is easy to choose between these two whether you homepod mini or nest audio based on what you What devices you mostly use whereas when does the recommendation make the most sense for the echo. Fourth gen well. That makes the most sense. If you're looking for a device that lets you both pipe in audio physically and pipe out audio physically. So if you want a way to make your beautiful sounding smarts or rather your beautiful sounding speakers in your home Have smarts then. The echo is the way to go because you can actually connect it. Then you get alien and all the functions that that provides but you get to hear it on your incredible sound system

Top Secret Apple Device Leaks

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

Apple Releases Revised Version of iOS 14.2 for iPhone 12

"Let's begin with apple. News apple release fourteen point two but he was a interesting released of this on the past but he was specifically for the iphone. Twelve meany and fixing text messages on a couple of other box so they have done these days and i think part of the reason they have done. This is to avoid leaking This is not the first time they needed it. But pay if you got a an iphone twelve meaning make sure that you update to the the last of the reid version of this Our next one is About talking about features of Big mac os or and you know now that they've been using it more Even dad is still is not my main machine. I'm continue impress of how well certain things work. In comparison to catalina again. I'm mike book is not mike main driver. My main drivers pat but there is still things that i do in in the macbook. An ibm impressed. How my old. I have an old mike. Macaire two thousand thirteen because there is no reason to upgraded but dad now having the same messages between the ipad and macbook. Dad has been nice because it was something that you know a lot of times you get down and get a message from just go. Pick another device because he was so annoying how that works so there are things like that that has worked incredibly well Interestingly enough i was really looking forward for the ipods switching between the devices and dot has turned to be a nightmare it may be. Because i have too many of them. I don't know but a lot of times. I am on a coal on the and then i moved my head or change device on suddenly i lose the call that has been annoying their ways to fix it you can tell them basically disable they switching but it was something that i really was looking forward. The romantic idea of yes and grabbed the other device and change out the medically am. I really didn't thought about yet. But what what when you're using multiple devices in the same call That do not work as well as i planning my mind our next Item is creek for the regency talking about running native window on the aim. One and on the new max chipset then us. On the reports we have seen has meaning credible On this chipset and it makes sense. I mean they integrate everything they made it in a really nice way and even the reports we have seen on his speech on on the mac sunday comparisons between the old macbooks macbook pro with the new ones are really incredible on so many ways so there is a lot of people wondering can i put windows in this thing and so far you cannot. I was reading over the weekend. Somebody ready port i version of it nut deficiency microsoft version but as for the for the rugged said it's up to microsoft and base it on what we have seen on the news lately about other companies looking to get into this arm. I may see us a possibility that they really jump into this one. I'm i'm skeptical. I think that you know eventually you know someone will make microsoft windows at least version. Ten work on the m one chips The reality though is that apple is I even heard linus torvalds the progenitor of the olympics colonel which we all know is running a people say lennox. But it's really the open source operates on top of that and the you know the whole notion of the m one chips is that apple is moving into this more island unto itself architecture creating a a privacy wall around their entire ecosystem and they're only letting in those who they want to let in and So i'm really curious whether or not this is really there Shot across the bow to all suffer developers. You'll all you know folks. Generally that they're going to be controlling this. And if you wanna play with them you've got to play by their rules and they do it now. 'cause they're making the chip they're making you know they're making everything So yeah. I'm i'm not particularly interested in running windows on a mac anyway but i think that you know seeing folks kind of bend the rules and making it work will be interesting to watch.

Securing Apple devices

"Of apple's know system across multiple types of devices. You know it's it's on on one hand makes things easier protect but it also means that zero day attacks can be more pervasively destructive they cover sort of thousands of times the surface area target attack might otherwise have give and. I'm not sure if i'm getting that right. But is there sort of like a uniformity of like Apples structure whatever that may zero days especially vulnerable so apple doesn't have the same operating system across all the devices were mac. Os there's ipod iowa's grant tv os watch. Each device does have its own separated. separated operating system But is taking approaches to make that more uniform allowing to be able to pick something up from your phone and then be able to pick it back up on your mac or on your ipad so they are allowing that kind of cross use against the different operating systems are making that more like uniform. And so i don't know i i could totally see what the potential risks there Especially as apps made for ipads ios devices being added to the app store and being available on a mac because even though apple is pretty strict on their developers in what they allow in the app store we just had a case recently. Where they actually notarized mac malware to be able to be downloaded motorization was one of their big kennedy security approaches to help only allowed things that are authorized in kind of been blessed off. So they're not in there. There's no perfect defense Rate like you have to be aware of everything. There's always things that are gonna possibly slip. And so i do see that there could be potential risks with that for sure. Okay so speaking to that you know. It sounds like it's pretty hard. Is it pretty hard to sort of get one over via the app store in that way that you know they were able to authorize. This thing was so what happened with that. Was it just that. It looked very very realistic. And just sort of didn't pass the sniff astor's exactly and then it just turned out to be malware and that's that's not a common case no and that's the first i've heard of there may have been more but that was that was kind of like publicly made big knowledge. It's like okay so we want wanna talk. Obviously you're you're a bit of a mac guru here mcafee. We want to talk about. Mac specific security risks. That people should be aware of like what are some some common errors first of all that are made by apple users. You know just out in the world that opened them up to carry risks being careful what you click on that goes across any user. Just mac specific But yet just cautious of what you click on apple does a really good job of trying to put in some protections to the end user so not disabling things in the operating system right so like if you go to stack exchange looking for how to. Hey how do i do this. Really cool thing on my mac. And then they recommend that you disable internal protections like. You shouldn't do that like just cheap do rum. Yeah exactly in like there's always those targeted tools that are lake. Let's clean up your mac like here's your pop rate. That that that that happens a lot on the mac side because they are very focused on like your mac is contaminated. You need to download this kind of thing. So i think there's always that risk In depending on the type of attack and what what. The attackers like motives are is. There's always that sense of urgency rate. Like you need to do this right now. Because you're short-circuiting their commonsense. It's like right before. I can think about it. You just have kind of take a step back right like is this really is something bad But that's hard. I think there's there's always that pressure As a user to just be aware. But people like max because it's easy to use. They don't need all the ins and outs of everything Like people don't know where they're launch damon's launch In that there may be potential Tool there So i think it's just keeping be patient. Be weary of things that they download and click on Keep the native security functionality. That apple gives you enabled. Turn it off And just be more investigative into what they want me to add a would be my biggest lake just for any end user.

"When you had your last drink but it was is always saving four four and a half hours after that last drink and you went to sleep when at least for me my heart would race and then you would wake up. And then doc and then because you're you're you know just a type A. Personality you start thinking and you can't go back to sleep and you're sweating and then you have horrible night's sleep and then you know. Yeah but that was mentioned that you you buy the ruler as gifts for friends are there any other devices devices or books that regular that you regularly gift to other people I regularly gift. The book called in praise of shadows. Man You're the first person. Yes I know this book very very very small book. It's like eighty pages yup but it is an insight when when when we talk about staying beginner and looking at details and seeing it through other people's eyes. When you read that Little Book Doc again you want you don't want these big tomes you give your friends something? And they're like all it feels like an obligation but they go. Oh it's so small okay. I'll read that and they can do it in an hour and then they go. Oh so I so the book is you could explain the book. What go for it? Well no no I want to know I can give some some some some examples from the book. There's one that especially stuck with me but wh why is what's more interesting to me because I get bored. Hear Myself Talk. Why do you find this book? Interesting I find it absolutely fascinating because I only grew up so the book is all about you know Japan Japan before pre industrial era. And how they lived at home and how they lived in Western technology entered the home afterwards and he was comparing pairing his life before and after. I was never able to do that. 'cause I only lived in this world beyond this post industrial world and so he was explaining things like it had wooden spoons before metal spoons. And the and we had wooden bowls before we had porcelain bowls and just the sound of the of the spoon hitting the ball when it would on wood versus metal on porcelain. And how that would be grading to your ear. And how soothing it was when it was would on wood or artificial light versus natural light and diffuse light. And how your eyes how your mental state would be very different under these two conditions. So it was. It was literally comparing this pre industrial and post industrial life through a through an incredible writer. Who could encapsulated? And you start to go. Wait a second. I never considered those details in my life to this level. And you're like that's about staying beginner right. Oh my God I never even thought about that. And this makes me rethink a soul. Many things that I never thought it takes to a whole nother world yet. The the piece of that stuck stuck with me. Most concretely was the because I used to live. I lived in Japan for a year and high schools and exchange student and live live with three families so I got to see different rooms in the house and different styles of home. And there's A. There's a short portion in Impreza. Shadows break talks about how Gaudy certain types of you could consider them served. Chinese influenced Japanese say bowls and furniture. Furniture are because they're they're covered in gold plating or painted to look very bright and gold. lacquered lacquered exactly really and what my what my gifts myself for. My after finishing my second book which is definitely not short and is more of the homework assignment was a lacquer Japanese saddle actually which Kinda typifies this and the point in the book was that it looks Godley not because things were lacquered in those types of materials due to dim light they were intended to be looked at in very dim lighting. Soon as you put incandescent modern lighting on it looks terrible and I was like wow. I've never even considered the source and strength of lighting. And then it just totally changes how you look around at different objects different historical objects right. It's you you kinda take as a given that. The lighting is a constant but of course it's not a constant in retrospect and now that we've gone to led and beyond. It's as you know it's it's even more so that kind of brilliant stuff so no it's great. I'm glad that we share that love that book. That's that's awesome. Yeah this is the first style this. I definitely the first time that this book has ever come up on the on the podcast. How cool? I'm really glad you brought that up. It's a weird little book too. I mean it is it is it is is a strange. It is a strange strange book especially for that author raw kinds of novels and everything it was just like a little weekend project. It seemed for him do you you have any other books that you recommend often or have reread Yourself so yeah there's a I think I I I always go back to it because it makes me think about the ideas in the book but also makes me think about my life which is thinking thinking fast and slow by Daniel Common and and and You know You know a Nobel laureate amazing amazing guy and you know when you read that you really get to understand how your brain works and then you also if you can relate it to yourself and how you make decisions and out of it is about the depressing the emotional part of your body and about your decision making for the more logical rational port and then I also well that's good for some decisions but not all decisions so you because he really is advocating for taking getting rid of the emotional system and I'm like I like it because the book because I can really choose which one I want to use because sometimes there's fact based decisions and other times there their opinion in based decisions which are emotional base decisions and you have to really understand which type of decision you're making for that given that given that given point in time I'm thinking fast and slow I was believe it or not a subject as an Undergrad. In some of Dan economists experiments got paid. Whatever four dollars an hour to space bars for various experiments on that Thinking fast thinking slow separation if we look at the emotion based decisions. Whether that's what I don't WanNa say impulsive but very very quick decisions that are made with a few million years of evolutionary input like pre procon list whether to re tweet something very quickly without reading it are. Are there any examples that come to mind from your life where you've made very very good snap decisions. Where if you had tried to analyze it you would have made the wrong decision? Yeah yeah well. One of the best decisions I ever made in my life was to ask my wife to marry me and I didn't know literally fifteen minutes ten minutes before I was going to do it that I did it. Wow I didn't even know I had no. I had no clue. It was an amazing week and that was after eleven weeks of dating and then literally it was in a span of fifteen minutes from the time. I said I'm going to ten minutes from the time he said I'm going to do it until I get it. I wasn't prepared. I didn't even know that I was using prepare for her to say no. Okay Walk Walk. Walk me through this bit. So what happened. I mean in the sense that did it just randomly pop into your head or was there more to it on that day. Well the there was it was. It's actually a Monday morning. All things real romantic right No it was so what had happened. Was I had some very very close very very close friends and they came down. They said Oh I met this wonderful woman you know and and they were coming in time to gay.

My girlfriend's time is gonNA come and and drive to work together with her and so I come back in as I'm coming back. The clouds open up a rainbow vo opens up and literally.

"It was a thing that you wanted to have, and you wanted to have in your house, now is the first time ever for a computer. Same thing with an ipod. I mean, yes, a huge part of the ipod, was, I tunes in the fact that you could all the complexity was offloaded onto the MAC, you know, certainly a theme for apple in the way they've designed their products. But at the same time like apple spent its resources in its time on getting the hardware, right? And they were willing to outsource or the software side of it, and I think it's. In you think about the arc of Ives tenure at apple to me, you have to go back to this era, because it's where he like second only the Steve Jobs, he saved the company because gain those products out making products that people wanted, despite the fact, they're missing so many important pieces. That's what gave apple the, the money gave him the resources gave them the motivation, the motivation, the, the momentum for everything that followed and to take nothing away from his designs around the, the iphone or the ipad or any of those sorts of things. But all those that was a train though sort of going down the tracks at that point. And johnny. I was very much the person that sort of got that train moving in the first place. And it's an interesting at in, in a statement, apple put forth yesterday to announce this. They Tim Cook's quote, you know, praising Johnny ive. Specifically called out the original I MAC. And, you know, I think for good reason, and I think you're right. And part of it timing wise. Like I said, was that on the software side jobs and his team from next had at least four or five years of work to get MAC OS ten out. It officially shipped in two thousand one but did you ever did you use it back, then I don't know. Jeevan try it in the original ten point zero Mabuhay rough, it was extremely rough. I mean really really rough and serious MAC users who had worked to do. Didn't use it. I mean it was years. And, you know, somebody was another podcast..

"Works view need to test it with others. Why never ever ever use yourself as a proxy you are too close to it? You're spending time thinking about this problem you've probably in your head of already jumped to some of the solution answers. So you're may try to actually manipulate the problem statement to match this really great idea. You got running around in your head distance yourself, never ever use yourself as the proxy. So how do you test it? One is right at out. Edited simplify it make it tight and make it concise, then find talked to people who you believe have the problem this most likely require you to get your butt up out of your chair and go find them in my previous life. I would actually go and hang out at best buy stores. People were piling consumer electronics devices, laptops, and printers now, yes, I was a user of laptops. I bought laptops. In fact, all the years, I was CTO at HP. I never took advantage of my role in order to get laptops for my family. I made my family each individual, my family. Go experience the shopping sprints pay retail. It's going to Circuit City your best buy. They go buy the product because I was a bad proxy. I wanted to hear about their experience. What how the sales rep treated them, what is sales were emphasize as part of a feature set that convinced them to buy do the same movie move yourself being the proxy in good out there and talk to people read them. The problem statement just stand there and say, I think I've got a problem when I think, you know, people like you are having this problem. If I could solve that problem, it would be this. Value. It'd be valuable to you, but, you know, give you back more time or whatever the problem is reduce your frustration. Whatever it is read them the problem statement. And then what I do is I'll actually then hand them put it out on, like, really big index cards, and I'll hand them there's gonna ask them to read it themselves. Then them set of questions, validate the problem statement. Now you can change these questions around. These are just the questions I use. One is. Is this team ipod asus the way we define the problem is that a problem for you? Why or why not? I think you I think you have this problem bubble up. Am I right? Do you agree with it? Why? Or why not certain question? What problem would be sold for you? If the problem is defined was fixed or corrected meaning if I solve this, what, what is the pain or discomfort, or issues that this problem causes in solve, you are lack of time or not enough disposable income or read, whatever it is? Third question. How frequently does this problem 'cause a problem for you? You know, this once every three year thing when you've got a refresh a piece of electronics where you gotta be short on cash and, or save up in order to know that you have to buy a new laptop, you're going to college or buy new cell phone. How frequently does this issue caused a problem for you? And then the fourth question, but value, would you gain if this problem salt, what would be your big wish if I get a magic wand and I could solve it now. After you've gone through that process of talking to them, then you want to editor, just a problem statement, based on what you heard. But now that you have a problem statement. What do you do with it? You get a nice written. That's nice tight clear, you validated it. I would recommend sharing with the team for the brainstorm homework Senate out to everybody that's on the team two weeks, a month ahead of the brainstorm have them. Think about the problem statement, and then as them to answer the validation questions from the perspective of individuals who had received the benefit have them put themselves in the shoes of the person that you're trying to solve the problem for. In some cases at the beginning of the brainstorm, I'll share the discuss the problem statement. And then I'll ask each of the team members were part of the brainstorm to share their thoughts or eight to the validation questions regarding the problem statements. Now in some cases, they may come back and tell you that this part of the problem statement, wasn't quite clear. Cetera be willing to adjust that problem statement. I just did a workshop two weeks ago in Washington DC with a major military branch worked out a problem statement with the generals when I got it in front of the team. They actually came back with some really good suggestions. So what did we do? We modified the problem statement before we went into aviation so be willing, dump don't think you're casting titanium, you can be flexible. And you can't you can you can. Change it. Now, another cases, we review the problem statement and jumped directly into individual, and then group aviation the, you know, whatever works for you, depending on your team. How much time you have what you're trying to cheat it's cetera. Now, I cannot under emphasize the importance of committing the time in getting the problem statements right now indulge me. I'm going to repeat the Elbert Einstein quote. I shared with you earlier in the show, quote, if I had only one hour to save the world, I would spend fifty five minutes defining the problem in only five minutes, finding the solution into quote, do not scrimp on this spend the time. Yes, I know I'm sounding like a broken record a well-defined focus via well, thought out problem statements will generate more and radically better ideas when you are aiding, so let's review the four steps to creating a better. Problem statement for your next brainstorm stuff one, brainstorm the problem not the solution. You're brainstorming the problem. The list of all the barriers every all the challenge up all the frictions cetera brainstorm. The problem list them all out group, the common ones up. Derive what is that? Telling you about the problems that users are facing step to have each individual on the team that, that you're working with come up with the problem statement, answer, the who has the problem. What is the problem and why should I solve it? The who what why step number three draft problem statements using the templates come take advantage of the templates and come up with a variety different once and then refine them simple by them. Throw out unnecessary words, make it nice and Chris in clear. And then step number four tested with the who. Who are you trying to solve the problem for test? Your problem statement doesn't make any sense to go off for ninety eight. If you done even knows you got the problem to find correctly test the problem statement, so four stops pretty simple. Now, I will tell you, though, that one show is not enough time to cover. Everything about problem statements. We literally spend four hours on it. When we're doing the four day, boot camp, we teach the entire process.

"Its CEO on stage and it's marketing people on stage and address, not just developers, but the whole world about what's new from apple, the developer's conference is kind of a little bit different because they tend to focus on. What's new from apple that developers would be interested in? So we we know that, you know they released last week. A new MAC book pro updated macbook pro and what I'm calling the last ipod. Yeah. Apple last week released in a new ipod touch they hadn't up updated the ipod touch four years. They released the ipod touch which features a processor from four years ago, most of it's the same processor is in the iphone seven. So. Seven we're, we're, we're, we're at eleven kind of so. Yeah. Few years back, there was the eight there never was the nine though was they went right to ten. And then the tennis, so yeah, it's the it's the biotic eight ten up by the, this year's the biotic, it's the eight ten processor. Which is fine. It's an ipod. Right. But it's really what it is, is an iphone modest phone parts. And with a four inch screens, small little do Hickey. And I, I call it the last ipod. Not the latest ipod, because I feel like this is probably the end of the line. They waited for years even to update this for us from now. Will there be a market at all for I pods? I think the natural market for the ipod touch. I guess kids, parents don't wanna give a cellphone, to kids, so they give him an ipod touch. So they can, you know, play games and listen to music. But honestly, two things are happening. One is kids younger and younger getting cell phones, because parents are realizing, oh, it's nice to know where my kid is and be able to talk to them and have them, call me if it's an emergency. So maybe they ought to have a cellphone the other thing that's happening. Of course, is if you want them to have an ipod touch, you can give them dad's or mom's old iphone, it'll even be more up-to-date just take the, the sim card out of it. They still have any phone capabilities, but it'll still be exactly like an ipod touch only more recent more up to date with the screen. So I just can't imagine there's much of a market for these ipod touches I really. Can't imagine that. So I'm going to call it the last ipod, maybe I'll be wrong. Maybe four years from now. They'll update the ipod touch with, with the current iphone processor. But I just who at this point, who cares even. But the point of making his they've announced those two products last week. That means they're clearing the decks. They don't want people to be saying, well, where's the new ipod touch not that anybody would or where's the new MAC book pro at WWW on Monday. No, if they talk about new mex- it, maybe it'll be an I MAC, kind of a high end I met for developers. But everybody's most interested will they release a new MAC pro haven't released a MAC pro since twenty thirteen making haven't updated it since twenty thirteen making people. They still sell it a six year old computer why you buy it, but they still sell it. But making people think maybe apples given up on the pro market. Maybe they have who knows I I've given up on understanding apple to be honest. The problem is they make so much money on the iphone that it's hard for them to focus on anything else. They will announce a new version. I suspect of MAC OS, but more more interest about IOS thirteen dark mode, will boy that's it, man. That's a killer feature. Huh. And MAC OS is gonna come with something called marks upon which instead of being a tasty almond treat is, in fact, code that lets developers put their apps for the iphone and the ipad on the MAC which is the beginning of the end. It's almost over for the back. It really is also rumor has it and it's widely repeated that they will release a thirty one point six inch six K pro display. Or at least announce it that would make sense to go with the MAC pro because the MAC pro just won't be expensive enough. Let's add a six thousand dollar display. The most interesting betting line at this point would be how much will a MAC pro with this display fully configured cost. I'm guessing well over twenty thousand dollars. And then. The next question to be, and who's going to buy that there are pros at their their, their people listening right now. Video editors photographers, who have to have a MAC. Have to have MAC. But I have a feeling that, that group is dwindling rapidly rapidly and the. Just it's hard for me to get too excited about apple stuff. It's just so darn expensive. It's really become a impact. Who was it said? I think it was Google said we don't want privacy to be a luxury item. Apple is becoming rapidly becoming a luxury item. Isn't it? And one even I who have many luxury items can't bring myself to buy. I just can't do it. We will see Monday, ten AM Pacific. What will apple announce? I think that pretty much is it right there, by the way. Let's see apple does have one billion active device users. And that's really the thing. I think that's where apples I is drifting to it's drifting away from the MAC even drifting away from the ipad. It's drifting over to services, things they can get apple iphone users to pay for with a billion people using more than one point four billion apple devices. The thing that makes the executive suite rub their hands with please. The idea of getting each of them to pay ten twenty thirty dollars a month. For cloud for apple TV plus for I tunes for apple music, all of that stuff. Nine hundred twenty five million iphones in the world. Amazing, the restaurant pens. That's a that's a, that's a gold mine for apple. It's also in incentive for apple to keep you in the apple ecosystem to discourage you if you're using apple products, discourage you from using anything by that those other guys Google or Samsung. Ooh. Apple apple wants the apple fold. In fact, they even went to Amazon and other kind of hereditary enemy and said, look. We're going to let you sell apple stuff, but we'll make a deal you can only sell apple gear if you sell original apple gear from us, you can no longer support third party, apple resellers. And Amazon said, okay, booting them off. Now, there's rumors Amazon's about to boot off all the little guys, not just apple resellers. But all the little guys in the marketplace. Do they say concerns over counterfeiting? But this is good for apple, right? Apples always said, we, we don't like it the other people, so apple stuff. We are we want to be the only people who sell stuff. And I think they're going to get their way. They call a walled garden for reason eight at Hess, Cleo. That's the phone number.

I get an hour. I'm so he says it's key. It's key to come up with simple recommendations that they can remember and he says, so the main thing I tell them is get the blue key, the Yuba key for two factor authentication, and I thought that was really good advice because there's only one blue Yuba key. So it's easy to remember, it's cheap. It starts at twenty dollars..

"It's your choice if you don't want that user experience to be awesome. You know. I might be a little weird because. Maybe it's because I use imacs but when I'm on the board, I just want to be on the keyboard, and I noticed that I put this bridge keyboard on the ipad. I'm much use touch much much less I leaving us. Keyboard shortcuts to go home or going to search and I but I don't think that that's correct. That if you fingers are on the keys you wanna stay on the keys as much as possible, what you don't want to switching modes all the time. Yeah, well, what one of the one of the hindrances is that w- if you're using an external device, you can actually see the tip of the pointer as you aim at towards the thing you want to click on. Whereas when you have your finger your finger always gets in its own way. So for some things since like for like stuff, you're right? You'd want it. Yeah. Yeah. Not, not only not only that, but, like there's some parts of a user interface where they, it's a right now mobile apps are complicated, some mobile apps are so productivity useful that they really can't streamline the interface all the way down. They do. Have to have a hamburger menu or something where there's kind of more of a desktop paradigm, and it becomes more difficult to aim your fingers to navigate the center face. But, like I, I think that Lori it's like a failure though. If you've if you add, I agree with you. You have to, but that seems like a failure you should be able to touch not a failure. So some sometimes he sometimes all designers chase perf- the perfect solution for so long that they deny people a good solution. And I think that lorries suggestion that apple will not have to necessarily support and defend and build out a whole pointer based interface. If all the just people like she and me and Rene and you are point. Hey, by the way, few, I started using using a mouse with my head, and it's just totally totally changed my life. They can let us bear, the burden of user sank with it doesn't really, really work well with this thing. Well, I didn't say would work with everything. Yeah, but you told us, I'm sorry. We didn't say, well, we just. People want touchscreens on their MAC, and they want track pads on their devices and sound mutually inconsistent, but it's exactly what you said, you just don't wanna change context. So if your hands are up, you want to touch things. And if your hands are down you wanna move things, and you want to have both options. And if you don't it always goes, like, something's broken. Yeah, I just feel like the operating that the, the device should tell you what you're using its. Why really honestly the ipad could be a little confusing. If it has a keyboard, and a mouse, it really should be touch only device..

"From Cowan warns Apple's earnings and fiscal twenty twenty could fall by twenty six percent. If trying to the iphone speculation that may happen in response to the Trump administration's blacklisting of while way, apple shares are down more than ten percent this month. Sticking with apple tech. China's unveiled, I updated ipod touch and four. Here's the new model will cost one hundred ninety nine dollars. And we'll support new services like apple TV, plus in arcade. Games, the ipod was an instant hit when it came out in two thousand one, but in recent years, it's been overshadowed by the iphone to discuss. I wanna bring in Bloomberg texmart garment, so Mark why now? Well, we are a few days ahead of the annual worldwide developers conference now they'll be WDC in every time they come out with a major new us relief that same the software that runs on these devices occasionally, loses some compatibility with some devices the ipod touch updated since twenty fifteen is prime for that, because it has older components and older processor. Now, they're doing is, they're basically adding the chip from the iphone seven, that's a phone that came out three years ago, basically extending the life cycle, the lifespan of the ipod, touch and other few years in making it compatible with whatever the next software update is this year. Who's the market for an ipod touch? I mean you could get just get an iphone or get an ipad who wants to buy touch. So what you're seeing is some parents putting them in the Christmas. Stockings. Of their kids. This is in many respects an entry level. I o s device for kids who might not need or want cellular plan. Of course, it's much cheaper. The iphone ten costs thousand dollars. This is two hundred dollars. So it's one fifth of the price if you or someone who lives in the Android ecosystem in terms of your phone, and you wind device on top of that, as a secondary device in ipod touch us what you might be looking at if you want something like an ipad, but that's pocket -able ipod touches another possibility like why someone who wants to use it as digital camera. So there's plenty of uses for it. These are really big an enterprise. You see a lot of stores using them as point of sale devices. So there is a market for this device, that it makes sense it out. But with update it updated too much. They're actually not really doing anything here, other than swapping out the processor, which naturally makes it compatible with more of the software features and services, which they've been rolling out over the past several months. All right, my stockings with. Bubble gum. But okay. This into Apple's broader, content and services push the ipod touch is now the cheapest way for people to be able to subscribe to out those services. At least that's what they are pushing this thing as what they're positioning, four you go on their website there. Mark marketing PR copies all about the services, which makes sense given what we've seen lately. Dave also talked up this devices, an augmented reality device, the processor on the previous version of the ipod, touch from twenty fifteen wasn't fast enough in order to support many of the a are apps that apple has been pushing lately, but other than that, you're not seeing a big update here. This is basically unlocking the ipod touches at the vice that you can do all the stuff you can do on an iphone or ipad. So we've got WWE see coming up next week. And of course, you've reported on a lot of things that were expecting apple to unveil. But what are you looking ahead towards four the event itself? WBZ should be pretty action packed. I mean, I'm expecting big updates to watch OS that's the apple operating system. But also the OS that run on the iphone ipad MAC the big entree of the day, I think is going to be unlocking ipad apps for the MAC. So with that means developers ipad, apps will be able to now port them to a MAC. So look for Twitter for Netflix for Facebook to potentially get into the MAC app ecosystem for the first time in the first time in a while in the case of Twitter, also, the apple watch is going to become more independent, that's going to be a big theme driving the app store to the watch itself is going to be a big move for both consumers and developers looking for exposure on the iphone side. I don't think it's going to be a significant uptake, but it's going to be lots of tweaks around the system really hitting on the wishlists of some consumers that you can see online and the ipad is going to get a big update to make it more compatible with more pro features. What you've seen them due to the ipad, pro harbor wise last year was, I think, quite frankly, amazing. I think the ipad pro Farber wise is one of the best tablets computers. You can buy the software has been behind, and they're going to finally fix that. Okay. Mark Gherman as always thanks so much for your reporting, and that does it for this edition of.

"Long time since I wanted to talk with you. I've got two major questions. Okay. The first one I've got an old I pod four that I bought mainly for MP threes and taking them from a windows directory. It put them in nicely. When I went to put on my photos in its through them into one folder. So I've got sixty thousand Gs in one folder, and they don't give you an opportunity to use the got four or five folder deep on on windows. But so let me ask you about. This is an ipod touch fourth generation ipod touch. Yeah old. Yeah. So you're the photos are pictures you took with the ipod Ono these these. Were taken with regular cameras. Okay. But just store them on the ipod. Correct. Okay. Just so you'd have them, and you could show them to people things like that. They didn't they didn't bring the folders got four work that way. No. That's that's called. I o s. So the thing that who stand about Apple's IRS operating system. It's not like a computer. It is you knew it. I know it's a computer. In fact, has a file system it has folder, but it does not expose that to the individual to the user. It's hidden. So when you copy five files over photos over to the ipod touch the only way you can see them is through the photos app, the apple photos app, and any organization you wanna do you have to do inside the photos app by hand. You're not you.

Globally braid, you know, and it's still the ipod touches three hundred bucks. So it's not like, it's cheap. You know? It's not like buying an ipod shuffle certain developers were buying them right for a while to to tests. But are they still but again? Yeah. I don't know. I don't have the numbers. I feel like that was a vestige of the Aira when there weren't a lot of quote unquote, old spare iphones floating around everybody's house. Now there are, but it, you know, or is it like an institutional thing like hospitals and warehouses and anywhere else. Where people are running little, you know. We do a two prong question. I guess like do you think that they are just trying to increase the number of devices that they have in order to maximize? And they know that the overall units are going to be continued to be flat. I dunno forward in are. They just trying to like get into more Nisha 's that they might have missed earlier in order to keep that service revenue knowing I don't know.

Will you know because a couple of them? I think yeah. I remember in the early days forget, if it was a WW DC probably was WC because it might it might have already been after MacWorld expo was no longer thing. But I just remember milling about the top floor of Mosconi west before. A keynote on a Monday or Tuesday, whatever day, and, you know, forty five minutes before they opened the doors, but there's coffee and donuts, and there's hundreds and hundreds of people, and I saw somebody talking on the or using an iphone and it was. So clearly, I I was like I my first thought was holy shit. Someone from apple is here using a prototype. I phoned this is insane. Why would you do that like because it was so clearly thinner than the exist funds and it turned out? It was a guy with an ipod touch. But like without thinking about it. I thought it was like next year's iphone, and it was amazing. And he's just out here using it in front of hundreds of people. I've always liked the product. It's always been intriguing to me. But I don't I don't know anybody who buys them. I don't know. I think it's interesting.

"I think apple will eventually do that the question in my mind is will they do it in twenty nineteen or will they wait until twenty twenty and I'm sort of on the fence on that one. At least when it comes to the iphone. Now, the ipod touch that might be a whole different animal, and I could see apple sort of redoing that. Of course, this report out of Macara does not mention any specific. Details on any on any of this especially the ipod, touch, and they don't talk about a change in design anything like that. But I thought you know, now that I'm thinking about this. What would apple do with an update to the ipod touch considering it was last updated in twenty fifteen I think it's pretty safe to assume that we will see an upgraded processor the current model uses an eight which is pretty long in the tooth. I'd like to see them at least up the that to an eight ten, but it would be nice if they brought it fully into the modern age and gave it an eight twelve would they add a true camera system. Get rid of the touch ID and go with more of an iphone current. I phone design with an edge to edge display. I think that's something. We would like to see them do. Although I don't put much stock in it because the ipod touch is going to be more of an entry level device. So I think they may stick with the older. Her touch ID technology. The question would be are they still going to maybe try to expand out the display and the design a little bit that I really don't know. And then the last question in my mind is would they up the storage? Currently they sell a thirty two gigabytes in a one twenty eight gigabyte model, it would be really nice to see them bump that up to sixty four and two fifty six. But if you look at Apple's entry level, I phones the iphone sevens and the iphone eight or at least the iphone seven it is at thirty two and one twenty eight. So I think they may keep those storage sizes and keep the pricing at one ninety nine u s and to ninety nine US respectively. The piece does point out that the ipod touch is still a pretty good entry point product for a lot of customers especially in light of apple transitioning over to a heavier focus on their services. So they definitely want to continue to update that. Product, especially with their upcoming video streaming service on the horizon, right? Apple wants to.

"There's their platforms. This is interesting. It's like, I don't think there's really a I don't think they have to this year. I think the last. The lesson. They had a new ipod touch fifteen. It was like that chip was about to be dead in terms like, you know. They'll sell refurbished, I heights with all software, but they won't. So a new, and they would just probably wanted to continue it, you know, older refurbished or stop selling touches. But I think two thousand fifteen when they needed updated. If they wanted to support that fall version of Iowa or maybe the next year. And I think I think with the current touch a wrench the same chip as the I pad many four and the iphone six and then for that matter the apple TV fourth generation in the home pod. I yeah. And I feel like that's going to be because Iowa's trove works iphone five s and six I don't feel like I was thirteen would kill the five s and the six I think both probably supported because they want to maintain the good will. Got it for my always twelve and then like fourteen concert killing off devices. But I don't feel like it's for that reason. But for whatever the reason is I'm up to mystic that this happens and philosophy about because as mentioned this show. My daughter had an ipod, touch and the battery just world on it and the cost of replacing the battery. I think it was like around sixty or seventy bucks was just like versus a new one. It didn't make sense for me in buying a new one of the same thing from four years ago. Really bothers me. And so we decided to competition they don't make a new version of this yet. And so we're not going to replace it yet. And she understood for what it's all she could with this story. I just thought it'd be fun to tell her. Hey, there's a rumor that Apple's going to make a new ipod touch. Oh, can we get it when it comes out? And I was like, yeah. We will if they make it. We don't know for sure yet. But if make it will buy it. She decided she said that can be like my phone in. It can be like your phone if they make it. We'll see because he's too. My sister uses an ipod, touch, and she has the latest generation model but for Christmas. My mom's me like why don't we get the new apple touch like a Christmas present. And I was like mom is the new I put. Three years at this point. And it's just like like, I I'll into the upper parts around for this long. She She just. just. Longest time link. There was an iphone. There's an touch. No. It's just like the touch was always like where you kind of want the iphone going, then it is like portable. But then they started making bigger phones the ipod touch went from three and a half inches to four inches, but never went to four point seven all bigger screens. I mean, the touch was still touch ID yet and touch ID new face. Single came in the back. And you like, I don't know if they would do all that on on new version, like, maybe they would I, you know, I would guess like touch ID and not trace ID, and like the same case is and all that just like faster, and like a better camera, maybe even from the fifth generation to generation. It wasn't a big chains. Like, they got rid of the little camera loop on the back. There was that one weird version. We're had no camera hit a price point. And the guy rid of that one. I think it was only available like gray. And. Yeah. It's weird. But I hope this is true because I will be as a parent in the market for this. We have.

"When I invariably was called to fix a problem. It was usually pretty easy, and I know networking technology has evolved the lots then we're all into the mesh networking these days. But I would love an apple mesh network product. I just think that'd be delightful, and I'm really worried honestly about what I'm going to do when my when my airport eventually dies. I don't know what I'll replace it with thanks for your thoughts on that. Let us go to our second topic which comes from Shelly. So speaking of the ipod touch words that are probably not said very often on clockwise. I am a fan of the ipod touch. I wrote a story about it years ago of commending it to everyone's attention, and we'll talk about that bit more later. But is there product out there in the world, perhaps like the ipod, touch, perhaps not that you love that? No one else does an underdog. If you will that you think is great. But everybody else maybe even get laughed at for loving it while I don't I don't have one that. I absolutely am sort of embarrassed to talk about. But based on the trends of nerds at this time. I get a little worried when I bring up the fact that I love the keyboard that I use for my ipad pro which is just the what's it called, the smart keyboard case or something like that where it's just that chick lit style. Little tippy tabby mouse tap, dancing keyboard? And it's built right into the case. I love how it sounds. I love how it feels and the keyboard that I used a today is just apples. Good ole. What is it magic keyboard? And I think that that is a great keyboard for me. But apparently, you're not a true nerd unless you using one of those very loud. Very ancient click humour DHS that just makes so much noise. I'm not I'm not all about that noise. I like my the key travel is just enough. But it's not too much. The keys are. Squared, and I can I can feel between the different ones, and I can very quietly type in case there's something that I need to look up while we're doing clockwise. We don't want the microphone to here. Issue. What is your shame? I guess my shame is the the magic touch bar. I absolutely love it. And that is not a popular opinion. And from a while little where he was going to go away. Because when the when the pro came out there was no sign of it being on the new fancy, Dr keyboard, but it was kind of updated a little bit in the last man, but pro refresh so I guess we haven't for a little bit. But yeah, I love it. And no one else seems to. I'm casting. My is around my office looking for something that I feel like is under loved I think the thing I've probably taken the most flak, and certainly it's not an unpopular product necessarily. But certainly among some of the tech circles that I find myself in it gets to write a lot would be the echo the masonic. Because there's obviously people have lots of privacy concerns or their weird out about talking to a robot. But is been frankly, the voice control technology aspect of that has been just a one of the biggest revolutions in tech for me in the last couple years. It's just having this sort of ubiquitous computing device where you can just be like oh, hold on. I had this question. I need answered or like to start playing the radio without having to fiddle around with my iphone, it's been a huge change. But yeah, I know it's not people's everybody's Cup of tea, and I've definitely taken my share of criticism from people. So I think that's probably the closest I can think of to sort of in an. Undug product that I really have favor of. So I do love the ipod, touch, and I looked back at this post. I wrote three years ago when I was defending it when the the sixth generation coming out, and I realized that some of my ardor has cooled because at that time it was just after the apple watch have been released and I wasn't on board with that yet. And I was like wait, I've got this ipod touch the.
