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
Apple Is Top Pick For Growing PC Market
"Send them. You probably never thought you'd hear from wall street. Apple is the top pick for the growing. Pc market. I'll give you a moment. Apple's read out. Oh ren part of a note from counting company analyst. Chris sang car on thursday for calendar. Year twenty twenty. He and his. The pc market grew over eight percent driven by all the working from home and schooling at home for twenty twenty one more of the same. They think the segment will grow another two and a half percent this year the way the firm sees it. Hp will do well by units sold. Mostly they'll be chromebooks. Though for the stock to do. Well sang card thanks. They'll have to revitalize their printing business the firms not seeing great things for dell this year. They see improvement for that company. Once people start going back to the office and apple in the it hardware space says san cars note. Apple remains our top pick given refreshed macbook and ipod product portfolios estimated seventy percent plus and education sales exposure and new in sourced m series chips. The could help alleviate some cpu procurement who would've thought two years ago that we'd be talking about pc's grow segment and if we were who thought we'd be talking about apple. Cowen company has an outperform rating on apple shares. The firm's price target on the shares is one hundred thirty three dollars.
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.
Why Black Friday In-Store Sales Won't Go Extinct
"There's also evidence that the Internet is basically knocking on black Friday's door Thanksgiving days, the fastest growing online shopping day on Di Think like 70% of the people who said that they're going to shop on Black Friday said they'll do some or most of it online, right. Um, so the Internet still there for retailers to make money. But the idea of black Friday in store sales going extinct is probably not Going to happen because it's its own thing like there's this one consumer psychologist or consumer analyst, I think pointed out that it's It's a tradition number one. Now it is. On number two. There's a certain element of like sport to it. It's it's more than just Getting a good deal. It's yes, you know, throwing a fist that somebody while you get a good deal, there's something to it that transcends the whole thing. So we mentioned doorbusters. It's a central part of the cog that is black Friday. And it goes back and print. Believe it or not, to the year 1917 and anecdotally the 18 95, where in a retailer will basically say You know what we have? One item are usually it's a few now but some really deep, deep and really super great deals on just a few select items. Silly. For example, a good laptop for $180. Yes, then like Deals like that iPods for half off for TV feel like 200 like, really, really, like you said. Very good discounts, But here's the deal. To scam people. It's a bait and switch. It's a bait and switch. They only got a very limited amount of these select items, which is why the violence happens, which we'll get to in a minute. On Then after that, they're hoping you get in there. You don't get that laptop, but you're like, screw it. I'm at Walmart at 5 A.m.. I might as well buy some stuff regular priced or slightly discounted items. Um And you know, that's how they get you in the store. That's how they get you. It is on dit. Is it true that they're these items do exist, and they are for that deal. There. There there for that price, I should say, um But there's only like 10 and in the fine print. It's like one for person. And that deals is for in stock. Only, like you can't get a rain check or anything like that. No, no, no. But the concept that these deals do exist for those items that are in the store. Coupled with Whoever physically gets their hands on that item first gets that deal. Yeah, um, leads to doors actually being busted. It's called Recipe for disaster. Yeah, um All right. So
Apple earnings grow even in coronavirus pandemic
"A normal year, it was a bad quarter for apple. You heard that earlier when Sarah was summarizing all the the big tech earnings profit down seven percent over last year iphone revenue down twenty one percent but for a corona virus quarter. It was received well, revenue overall for apple was up one percent and acknowledgement that the new iphone didn't come along in this quarter like usual meant that people are like, okay. They normally have an iphone in at least for part of the quarter and they didn't this year that's GonNa make a difference. This I think is also an early look at what life will be like in a world where phone sales just flat out. Where people just aren't really buying phones all the time similar to what we do with laptops and tablets now. Apple will be able to occasionally pick up the slack with occasionally peaks of it's already flattened product lines. We have examples here ipod revenue was up forty six percent Mac sales up twenty eight percent though sales are a little juiced by lockdown needs more people needed laptops and tablets than usual, and they won't always be there. But Services is what apple says is its future and lockdown juice or not services picked up big time for falling iphone revenue twenty one percent down revenue in iphone should have been a disaster, but they were up one percent overall. Why is that well in part? It was services revenue being up sixteen point three percent. They made fourteen point, five billion dollars on services that made it the number two revenue generator for apple to the Iphone, which was twenty six point four billion services recorded an all time high of five hundred eighty five million paid subscriptions growing by one hundred, thirty, five, million year-over-year on track to reach six, hundred, million by the end of twenty twenty. There was some bad news in here though China was not good news net sales grew year-over-year in every market except China. China revenue for Apple fell from eleven point one, three, four, billion to seven, point, nine, four, six, billion. But Services is the future. A whole lot on services in China because it's harder to do services in China and apple just launched its apple one subscription plan which bundles it subscriptions, and a monthly prices from ten dollars to thirty dollars a month they got three tiers in there, and that's going to bring in more subscribers as well and get people to pay a little more money. And they're not done their CEO Tim Cook on the earnings called. This year has a few more exciting things in store which I want to make. It means apple silicon. CAN'T TAKE IT MR Cooke I've had enough. So a few things here, Tom, you said ipod. IPAD but IPAD revenue is forty six percent anish epoch, right? Yeah. I. Know You're. Very. Yeah I revenue generating kissing. Confuse anybody I had revenue being up forty six percent Mac sales up twenty, eight percent. Both of those are like, okay. People are at home. There that well, first of all, there wasn't a phone to buy but even if there was like. Yeah I'd like we got a you know, let's let's think about how we make the most of our current situation because most people are hanging out at home much more than they had in the past that. Makes Sense to me. The numbers are pretty impressive though but I think that you bring up a good point about the phone sales flattening out flooding out, and let's take the pandemic step even out of the equation you just you're going to get to a point like you said with laptops and tablets where enough people who want them have them and they're only gonNA buy a new one if something goes. Wrong or you know three to four years go by and you'RE GONNA get slow in sales on that kind of model yet. I, think that is definitely the case when it comes to phones. If you think about you know smartphones, they've been around for a long time, but they really haven't been around for that long and when he first came out every year or every other year, which is more. People generally upgraded their phone. Every couple of years will you would get a new compared to what came out two years before wasn't Bajic. And, probably, for the last three or four devices that just hasn't been the case now that they absolutely are putting their, you know their toe into the camera, but the cameras are getting so advanced that people just aren't using net. Into really into photography it's like you know a lot of photographers are still going to get their DSL ours their meritless cameras and all that kind of stuff. So now your phone is just something that well, when I need a new one, I'll get one
Apple promotes redesigned iPad Air
"Couple of IPAD air four things. Yes. I got the sixty four gigabyte model so. I did look at the next model up you know and I consider style. You know what? It's like. Now, this thing I'm going to use this thing for like know web browsing video calling kind of second screen stuff. You know maybe reading reading a book I've I've done a thing before like I have an an. An E book. And I like read through it on the Elliptical. So that's before I plan on it and I also enjoy IPAD usage of watching movies on on the treadmill having that Beijing time I think I'll use this with fitness plus when it comes out because. The phones kind kinda small for that I've. I think so. I don't think suboxone bringing an IPOD and like and put it over a machine that you're using. Invasive. I'm yeah. Yeah. I have no plans to add three hundred dollar magic keyboard to choose a six hundred dollar. Same thing with the Pencil of a pencil is a wonderful a wonderful tool. It's really nice and how they work with the flat sided ipads. I've had both pencils and I've even made like my sticker pack years ago. The president's will cigarette packs easing the pencil like manipulate images. Of already, like it was a little bit is buying it of Lake Michigan Pencil to but no, I didn't do that and I've found that just having no writing on paper and everything is fine for me for that. So that's fine. Too Expensive really lie. True. If he was sixty bucks then I'd just like sixty bucks I'll use it our own but you know if they gave back down to ninety nine where the first one. Was Priced out like one twenty, nine for an for a style accessory is is it very nice so? That is a lot of money to spend accessory. And then I had a moment yesterday where of is having to think mentally like windows on the stuff come out and like what dates are the important dates and so just had to go through and like put them in the calendar is like this is a preorder date and this is a release date. And that made me realize Oh oh yeah. The pilot mini. The same time as a phone twelve many or pro Max. But it comes out of that Friday after the the next Monday after so. They said the week of that. Oh. Yeah might not be the Monday. So that's that's that's awesome
How to Give Visitors a Wow! Experience
"Priscilla rice and I'm coming to you from Live Oak recording studio in Berkeley, California, and I'm joined on the phone today by the founder and the chief Visionary officer of BNI. Dr. Ivan misner. Hello, How are you? And where are you this week? I am in addition to many recorded visits all around the world. I am Live this week June for a regional compact. In event, so I'm in Canada this week. That sounds all right. Now also this week I have a guest this is his fifth visit to as a guest to be an iPod cast and his name is Mark Applebaum. Mark has been would be and I for over 15 years. He's been a director consultant for more than five years. He's long and successful chapters in the b&i Utah and North Region Marx married to his amazing life. He says Tiffany for almost twenty years with two children Ryan and Tom Jenna and one of the things that Mark loves to do is to teach chapter members how to give visitors a wow experience. I can't think of anything better than that. Welcome back Mark mm contest. Thank you so much. I've it's great to be back. What's good to have you here? And you want to start by talking about making visitors female wanted so the floors your home. Well, thank you, you know a little background of where my y about this topic came up his growing up. I grew up back east in New York and my dad owned a pet store or at the time when I was growing up and I worked for my dad for many years and my dad was the world to me and he struggled a lot financially. So if a customer ever left his store, but happy it really affects his livelihood. So I was did my best to if a customer wasn't having a positive experience at least have them leads as happy as possible and you know in vni every visitor is not only a potential customer to be an eye, but it's a potential customer for ourselves. It's a their potential referral partners for ourselves more could lead us to potential customers or referral Partners. So how we treat our visitors. It's just imperative. So this podcast, you know, if you're a visitor host. It's not just meant for the visitor house out there. It's really meant for every single member to take on the mindset of a visit. Post because we all play a role in that visitor experience and it's in the future success of our chapter know let me just add one thing to you real quick. I know if you know this, but when I started back we didn't have visitor hosts. One of the things I said was that if you invited a visitor you had to be there host and honestly that didn't work as well. So because not everybody's created equal as a host wage and we did create visitor host. But that was my initial concept with b and I was that everybody had to be a host especially the person that invited them and I love the story to share in in givors gained about the visitor you sent to a chapter who ended up going to a different chapter who's the chapter that actually designed to visit our house program. That's either story. So everyone listening think about the region your chapters in and the amount of chapters you have in your region and just here in the Utah North Region. We have fifty three chapters and just in the Salt Lake area we have over 2,000 chapter wage. So depending on what what a visitor does they really in a twenty-mile radius twenty-minute radius. They have a wide variety of of chapters to choose from. So if you if the for the people if you take a moment and think about your chapter and the culture that it has now imagine for a moment every chapter in your region met at the same time the same day in the same location as all the other chapters sure that's not possible. But imagine it was for a moment. Yeah, I would a visitor choose your chapter over all the other ones and you know, it really comes down to what the poet Maya Angelou says best people will forget what you said people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel. Yes, what a visitor feel welcomed and important. They're more likely to want more of that and yep. That's why we all play a role in that positive experience. Whether you're the visitor host or not your contribution to your chapter and that in your involvement with how the visitor enters the room and Enterprise is in call and and welcoming them really makes such a difference. So a few examples of ideas that members and chapters can take on that could be very beneficial to them. The first is off when the visitor is already registered in BNI connect. The leadership team will receive an email saying so-and-so is registered to to visit on this particular day. Right? Well, the idea would be that the president of the chapter soon after getting that email sends a personal email to that visitor and also on that email they copy on the email other members in the chapter that are complementary to the visitor and then purpose of all that is 1 to let the visitor know how excited they are to meet them to to give them any instructions. They they may need to you know, show up but yep. To really let the visitor know that these other members could be great power Partners together with that visitor and so a great success story. I'd like to share is about three years ago as a director. One of my roles was placing visitors helping visitors find Chapters and I was working with one professional and his business was custom mens clothing and because of his schedule I took it into three different chapters and the third chapter he went to the president at the time Steve level who's the business attorney in the chapter was phenomenal at doing this and so he sent this personal email to this month custom clothing gentleman, and he see see the financial adviser and the family law attorney on on the email who both of them also replied to the custom clothing gentleman saying Thursday, we looks so we look forward to meeting you we too could use help with their own wardrobe and that visitor ended up visiting and a couple of weeks later. He ended wage. Joining and a couple of weeks later. I called them to say to figure out why he picked that chapter over the other two and in his words. He said that that chapter had an unfair Advantage because without one month then, you know connected to the members before they even met them that he wanted to join a group and three years later. He still a member of the group
A Toolkit For Modern Life
"Cioppino clinical psychologist for fourteen years and trained for years before that entire time as I trained in law school and did I. Two policemen geometry nine including asylum-seekers brain injury. And since that time I've worked in a range of services in Scotland different locations in Maternity Services Children's mental health out clinical health adult mental health and preen injuries valor new psychology. So just actions over the last fourteen years and do you. Specialize in a particular area. Now will have moved away from them now. I still work. Ihs Ask for the moment. I work can you? The psychology says with people who have any utilize condition or up lean injury and work with both the impact out breen rehabilitation but also the impact of that on their mental health. How's that will be affected during pandemic of interest at do you mean the actual services or the mental health of people we'll get onto the I mean just sort of your day to day. Just were working hair. Yeah well hugely. Because we still are not flatow face-to-face contact in the hospital so we have transformed our entire surface to online and that works great. Sometimes it's really helpful for people because they don't have to travel. We live in a rural eighty through the services are the city. Some people have to travel quite lonely so they don't have to travel anymore says great for them but obviously you also have the barriers of technology says some people find getting online more difficult to find it more stressful. How do the online appointment? So this kind of pros and cons but as a huge change for our So what kind of things might be will be coming to you with the moment at the moment. Nhs I guess I see People Brandon today so it would be the impact of and obviously at the moment. I think a lot of the services aren't running. So there's increased isolation increased stress increased Mental health difficulties results have not be able to get the imputed acquired. Maybe not progress into the same way the to normally so it's the same things are coming into the service with but we're probably seeing different pattern of what's emerging because of it will move onto your brilliant book and drawings just in a SEC opponents sweetie great to to chat to an expert in and Sudafed aside as what are your thoughts on how the government should have dealt with the pandemic contempt of the health service in what you think they do sort of to improve services. Vermont people with them kind of struggle with mental health issues. I think it's difficult because it's so different. Across every region is so different across golden England. We have set for Health Service in Scotland England so we all create very differently. Emo- services have kept running in our area so we also have in our own set up a new service which is look psychological cyrus or for anybody who's been affected by covered so there's been a lot of innovation associates fitness jazz and the services ongoing. So it's very difficult to come from a general perspective because it's so different across every service and every region bazaar only I think the impact Manchester's led to lot of innovation a lot of innovation with technology innovation with services ultimately thinking about how we run the services. And that's not all bad lots. We'll have a really good outcome for people. For example you know not having to travel to appointments some people really like that have an opportunity to half an online appointment so I think a lot of innovation that's coming to that will be really good long-term But obviously there is some media's Alaka services or services are not available to the same extent we have an impact people as across tiffany. It's really interesting that you said about the different services in Scotland because I never thought about that. Great deal is it sort of the quite a few of the differences in the way that people when they have mental health issues. There's Phoenician across Africa Asia in terms of mental health in available. And I think that's why it always important checking your locally at airports available to you and Scotland England. Yes proudly artificial Regions England dispel. Let's make fun out to the main thing that was that adjusting about Which is you'll lovely. But also I mean you're credible social media presence and BRIAN THE BRAIN. So thank you Joe. The critics should. I call them cartoons throwing all every whatever you want. We'll get insulted whether you call them. Branches Fight Brian the brains and they've really gone viral on social media. Haven't they and I sort of really explaining lots of stuff around mental health? And they've got really good tips and everybody's just kind of cute to look at and so when did that? When did you come up with that? Well I've always drawn as part of my clinical sessions so people would come into session. Legal we with our scribble bits of any s scrap p par with joins on it and then come back the next week often with the same join with them and then we'd scribble more in it and I never really thought about taking any further. It's always been something I've just don t kind of what we've been talking about. And also the Person House with them during the week or two weeks until I see them again and it kind of I came on social media really kind of with idea of want to promote evidence based mental health. And then I bought a you ipod. I bought Pan which my husband told me not to buy. But I'm really glad I did because it's results in the big and and I ask you start thinking well well well initially start. Jin Better joins the people I've seeing them not scrappy. Nice joined take away with them and then I thought well actually more people can benefit from this accused. You know the same things. Come out with people again. There's so many similarities and people's presentations obse there's differences across people but there's the same issues coming up again. I thought more people could benefit from not so started drawing them out and put them on instagram. And really that was kind of the. You know just bought an you how to do so. I thought well instagram and see what the pickup is. If people enjoy them and opposite like you say they have taken off and really Brian. The brain is kind of the idea that we internalize too much of what could for us. And we're GONNA see a test part of us but actually is kind of externalize and say well this the embarks. This is mental health barks. It's about human and we all have a brain so we can all identify with the Breen often it being kind of individual something personal about you which obviously is but the same time there are commonalities not as well
Grading the Intel Era
"Today we're going to dive deep a bit on how the MAC ended up on Intel chips and how that went and how it's ending in the near future. Yeah I thought this'll be fine. I'm also a sign that you agreed to the idea. Early. Talk for an hour and half about. Processors like yes let's do it. So yeah a little bit different than a normal episode, but it's not every day that the MAC makes a big transition, those of us who follow the Mac and really care about as a platform. This is big important stuff. So we thought we could take a week and and talk about this here. It could be very soon that we see the first apple silicon Mac Apple said definitely by the end of twenty twenty, and here we are in the middle of October. So it could be anytime I mean they they definitely, GonNa have an iphone announcement soon, and then the question is, are they gonna say oh, by the way, we also have the silicon new apple can Max? ARE THEY GONNA? Wait for another? Announcement for that but but it's happening and I do think that the history of Intel can really kind of give us a good idea of what to expect going forward. Yeah, absolutely. So let's let's Kinda start there with the switch to Intel. So this this took place a lot longer ago than I thought it was everything feels like it's ten years ago was not ten years ago it was fifteen years ago. At WBZ, two thousand and five I've got a bunch of links in the show notes to the stuff. As we talk, you can go find the resources. This is the same keynote that podcast added to itunes which is Wild. The same one account like that. Though kind of feels nice for this episode well, I feel like back then in hindsight, apple was moving a lot faster because. They're bigger company now bigger companies move slower but they were they're crazy stuff like every announcement and this is right in the heyday of. I. Tunes and ipod stuff every time apple got on stage not just WDC. Would they had music events and they had macworld still? I tunes and ipod announcements were always part of the story and anytime you are thinking about announcements on this timer watching videos. It's just ever-present because it was a a huge deal for apple necessarily what got them to the size they were before the iphone launch, and then of course from then to now, it's been a drastic drastic change but the ipod and they were really important in the in this sort of. Really from two thousand and three, a couple of years in maybe two, thousand, eight or nine when it finally started to fade to engage grounded the iphone ipod tunes just like we're on stage we're GonNa talk about the stuff. Yeah I went back and watched the keynote and first of all, I just forgot how comfortable Steve Jobs was as a presenter. He's just. So I I mean the thing that made him good was he was just so comfortable and. It looked like he was just having a conversation with you as anybody who does public speaking can learn a lot from that but. What I thought was interesting was the parody between things he was saying then anything's apple said a few months ago as they announced the apple silicon transition definitely a lot of echoes of this event at Wbz twenty twenty. Down to even some of the same language and as we move into the technology side of it, a lot of the tech is being. Reused or new tech is using old names at least this is. Something that apple definitely leaned on I think this time around and this even wasn't hells I processor switch they went from the sixty eight K series to the power PC series. And we're not really getting into that today that was a relatively rough transition and places. Basically, a lot of the system software HAD TO BE EMULATED FOR AWHILE? Apple's hardware is moving faster than it software than. But they finally got their act together. But at this point, in two, thousand and five, the power PC train had basically just run out of steam and it's it's no. It was no mystery as to why they wanted to do this to said actually been rumored for a little while not as heavily rumored as the apple silicon stuff I think but the apple was also a lot more obvious in this which Intel was because like. Apples at this hiding their own chips. Of course, they WANNA use them for everything. I mean, they were already making apple silicon in all their mobile devices and people could already benchmark them against Matt does just slap that thing in and call today you know. I'm sure it's harder than that I don't mean to be going into it but. You know to slap it in there and move on.
Apple officially announces iPhone 12 event for October 13: ‘Hi, Speed
"Just as the years for saw, Avalon, Tuesday sent notice of its next socially distant event. High speed says the announcement. That's eight comma speed. I guess that makes at least one iphone five Geo though I. Think we had already landed on that square by now. Expectations have apple introducing four iphone twelve's according to apple insider. They're said to include a five point four, inch iphone twelve, a six point one, inch iphone twelve, Max, a six point one, inch, iphone twelve pro and a six point seven inch iphone twelve pro Max. All are expected to support five G. though. As we've discussed before their spy G, then there's five G. Apple insider says, there is the possibility all will include support for sub six GIGAHERTZ bands. But only some models may offer the high-speed m M or millimeter wave support. I like to call it no A. You can really taste the Geez. As. For the other hardware, the report says apple is still expected to reveal air bags. It's object tracking accessory. Taking advantage of Ultra wideband and Bluetooth the accessory could attach to keys or other objects and could be found by the users find my APP by using the existing network of iphones in the world to help locate the tag. Interestingly there may actually be an air tag on the event announcement. If you haven't seen that the invitation art is both simple and pleasing to the eye. To dark blue background with four seemingly translucent circles on it transitioning from lighter blue to orange. AT THE CENTER OF THE CENTER CIRCLE IS NAPA logo. Prolific Apple leaker. John. Prosser couldn't help noticing how much that senator shaded circle with the Apple Logo looks like an airtight rendering he'd seen and shared last month. That's got called the Mike saying that Tuesday's announcement might hide air bags in plain sight. Something else hidden not quite in plain sight. Is Another augmented reality? East Iraq. Does that mean an a are announcement next week well. It didn't last time, but a boy can dream. Similar to the time flies event announcement. The MAC observer says, apple's high speed. Then art can play an ar trek. To See it says had the apple events page on your iphone that apple dot com slash events. TAP on the high speed events logo, the camera will open and you will be instructed to move your phone around. Do all that and the date ten thirteen will float in your space along with the circle slash spears from the event announcement. It's the shadows that get me. It's not just shapes floating on the screen they appear to be casting shadows on the floor or table or. Whatever surface you're shooting against The future is going to be seriously messed up. Tim O. Says, you can also take a screen shot when the a are feature is running. You can use that to convince your friends that you are a wizard. Of, course, there's also the possibility of some sort of audio something. We heard yesterday that apple has pulled third party headphones and speakers from its online store. That's gotten folks who were expecting smaller home pod and on ear apple branded headphones. Expecting the more fervently. Next Tuesday's as good a time as any I suppose. As for when we can see what we'll see. Isn't it weird that we're still doing things like it's the before times. Somebody somewhere is going to hit play at ten. Am Pacific One PM Eastern on Tuesday the thirteenth about Tober. That'll obviously happened on apple's events page though it's not showing up yet one assumes it'll be available through the apple TV, APP, putting it on the Apple TV device as well as iphone IPAD ipod touch, the MAC and never growing list of smart t B.'s and streaming devices. Apple will stream the event on Youtube page. You can go there now to set a reminder. They will make it available as a podcast later seriously if you missed this event. It's because you want to.
Apple's iPhone 12 event is finally here (for real this time)
"Invites apples event next. Tuesday are out and all the confirmed the debut, the next iphone. So what are we expecting? Roger Chang, and this is your daily charge with me is our apple expert ensure welcome in. Hello. So jumped the gun a bit last time when the invites came out and we talked a bit about the iphone and turned out no iphones at all this September event, which is highly unusual first time ever that they as timber event without an iphone but second time around it's gotTa be iphone twelve right I mean if. They're going to have a lot of trouble I remember a long time ago. There was talk about how there's expectations around various events and I didn't know this but there's actually a fiduciary duty apple and companies have when rumors get out of control on a product and people say it's imminently coming and it's not gonNA come. It's almost like they have to dispel the rumor just to make sure that they're okay with finance and all that because people might be buying the stock at a crazy rate based on that one rumor and if they make an announcement but don't acknowledge it, they can't. So it's actually kind of i. have a really strong feeling bottom line that's an iphone. This time Brian so I mean we ran through the last time. But let's talk about what we're expecting from the IPHONE twelve for one, there's there's multiple models. There's a whole bunch of new bells and whistles, but let's let's get into it. What what are you expecting with this new family phones? This new family of iphones is going to be very similar in terms of the lineup to what we're used to. Right. There's going to be kind of an entry point one, which will be somewhere around seven hundred dollars or whatever it will be. Then they'll be the normal one which is around a thousand dollars and then the step up, which is the largest one for eleven hundred. What's going to be interesting is that there are rumors of a fourth iphone, a quote unquote mini, which for those of you remember the ipod mini that actually supercharged the ipod though I don't know what supercharging an iphone even looks like at this point, but it could draw even more demand and offer something between the iphone se. Whatever this new iphone is. But in terms of design, it's expected to look a lot like the IPAD pros. So think box here now scurvy and that's supposed to have a new chip. No surprise it'll be faster. I'm sure will change the world somehow, and then it's the big thing otherwise is five G.. That extra G is going to give us a lot faster surfing in hopefully really make a compelling argument for why people need to buy this thing. Yeah. That'll be the interesting one is the the idea that Five G. I mean there's been a lot of hype obviously talked about it a lot on this podcast of, but as I looked at it and look practically and I've asked you know some of the carriers about this, like what is the main benefit of five G.
