Joe Rogan Apologizes After Backlash Hits Spotify Shares. But Should He Have?
"That. Joe Rogan, coming out an apologizing. Because, you know, Neil Young doesn't like who he has on this show. Joni Mitchell, a bunch of husband musicians. I'm sorry, they remember were great at one time, but you know, they've seen their day. This is kind of Joe Rogan's day, but they don't like it. He's getting so much attention. They think somehow he's brainwashing the public even though I still say it's a free country, and guess what? You can listen to Joe or you can listen to Rachel maddow. Or you know what, you can listen to both, okay? Because it is a free country, and you ought to be able to listen to anything you want to listen to, but no, no, not if Neil and joanie have anything to say about it. And the duke and duchess or whatever the heck they're going by these days out there in LA hanging out with Oprah and all their pals, they somehow were suggesting that they might pull their content off a Spotify too, so Spotify clearly freaked out, freaked out enough to maybe freak Joel out and Joe whom I like a lot. And by the way, he's done a ton for the freedom of speech and he's done a ton for podcasting in general. I think one of the reasons I have a podcast here today and you're listening to it is in part because he was so instrumental in this genre. So not to take anything away from that, but I sure don't like it when I hear stuff like this. Listen. So if this you're off, I'm sorry. And if you enjoy the podcast, thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you, Spotify. Thank you all the supporters and even thank you to the haters, because you still need the haters. I get it, right? They give them more attention, but did he really have to say I'm sorry to everyone? They shouldn't be one bit sorry. Again, it's a free country. You can listen to Joe and you can listen to everyone else. And look, he's not a news organization. He's not pretending to be a news organization. He's a former M and a fighter. And so he doesn't need to be offering this that and

"Listen to our discussion with Joanie House. He is the vice president of finance. For Golden one. We talked to him about the state of the economy and where we're heading both nationally and locally, And here are a couple of audio clips. First, Sam asked Joe how he looks at the overall economy and the mixed messages we're getting right now. Can you categorize this economy right now? Yeah, And I think that's a great point. Really. It's just unprecedented. You know, I think I've been saying frequently. I don't know if there's too many people alive today that have experienced this many different economic factors. You know, you have rising home prices. You have the potential for High inflation. You have an economy that experienced extremely high unemployment, which is, you know, rebounded quite well but still remains fairly elevated. So there's definitely a lot of uncertainty out there. So it's not just us. Even the people who do that for a living are looking at it with a little saying, I've never seen anything quite like this. All the indicators are pointing in different directions. I mean, the last pandemic was a long time ago, and so yeah, we've had a lot of impact it So Christina and Joe talked about what all this means for Our local economy. Let's look regionally just in the Sacramento region. What are you watching? What indicators? Are you looking for? To show that it's making a strong recovery? So Sacramento, you know is is a little bit unique relative to other parts of the state. Given how many government jobs we have in the city, so We were able to be a little more stable throughout when it comes to the employment levels. We definitely experienced a spike in unemployment, like like most other areas throughout the state and the country. Um, but we have seen some pretty strong year over year growth or come back, especially in the leisure and hospitality sector. In the construction sector, so people are building again again. The inflation issue can kind of bleed into some of that, because there's a lot of construction that we're seeing around town and the prices of lumber. The prices of you know the other goods that go into all that activity have been elevated, but For the most part, the Sacramento region, I think has been doing well. We've seen again, the strongest come back and leisure hospitality constructions. That's Johnny. How's the vice president of finance for Golden one? You can hear our full discussion with him at kfbk dot com. If you click on the morning show page, we're going to be posting this new podcast for you a little bit later this morning, and it runs about 10 minutes or so It's always great to get a national perspective on what the economy is doing, but even better when you can talk to someone who is locally within our region, and Joe knows his stuff. He was very Impressive by the way. The Wall Street Journal reporting this morning that Fed chair Powell is navigating the inflation debate, just as Joe was talking about. They're going to meet this week and talk a little bit about how they're going to try to control inflation and how bad it is. And could there be an interest rate in our near future. So anyway, that's coming up this week, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Okay, let's get outside and check traffic.

And many, many times you guys have come in, and you know, it's something's been weighing on you heavily because somebody got into something that they can't get into. And then they've come and seen you and your, you know, and you're like you genuinely get upset. Have somebody won't. Well, I think that again because we've been here so long that they experience you gain. Obviously, we see many people, Joanie every single week. We're talking to Many of our clients, new people coming in and all of that. So we see a lot You know, during the course of any one year and sometimes yes, it's it's truthful that we see people get involved in investments are Financial products or some type of Um, advice that they were giving elsewhere. And Paul and I will scratch our heads like why would someone advised this for you at this stage in your life what you're trying to accomplish, but And I know you wanna go already that when I mean it has happened, you like to say very positive, But, you know, I'm just filling in people a little bit about behind the scenes I've seen. You get very upset when not only it's not only that it's just people, not understanding. You know what their investments are and how they work for them. And you see people made an unfortunate choice. Like I said, You know, uh, You segments ago, People met a sold out of their investments when it was down there sitting in the money market, rather than having participated in the growth are, they might have made an incorrect or not an incorrect but we would have maybe suggested a different choice for them starting Social Security or what type of pension option they chose. So, Yeah, I mean, um Sometimes it's like I wish they starve us three years ago, I would have told him something different, right? Right. Right. Right. You know what you can do is say this is what you This is where you wire and doesn't really matter what happened in the past. How do you wanna move it this way? I think it's extremely important for many to realize when they're Looking at Um ah Financial planner, an advisor someone to a system in the in their investments and overall financial life that they do their due diligence, You know, because there are Different ways that you as the consumer are using a financial planner, art advisor and you should be well aware of that. And so for us, you know, I can't explain it in Alaska, Gopal and I, we did that How we approach Introducing ourselves with someone who wants to come in and visit with us for the first time, and it's two or three meetings and all that, then wish on him everything up front and transparent how we get compensated, But I said that's the beginning because They key element in all this is then going forward. What should they expect from us as their advisor now? That's very important. My you know, because it's not just that transaction that happens at that particular time. If they decide to go forward with us now, you know, Paul and I have the responsibility. Our firm. Make sure that we're actively managing our clients money and what that means is in any one year we could read balance the accounts several times. We could be adding positions to the portfolio. We could be replacing positions in the allocation of the investments based on our investment research. And so all that takes place during the course of any one year. In addition to that many of our clients come in once or twice. I sometimes more in one year for review meetings and at those meetings What we do in those meetings this week over all and update all the accounts, and we look at the performance of the council were managing for them with the graph. It shows him like the last you know, year to date last three months last year. Last 10 years, whatever my fee, and so we're looking at all that, But in everyone's life, Joni, we all know that especially the year like 2020 that things change and so in those review meanings many times we're discussing with clients situations that are going on their financial life, and it could be Hey, you know, we have this new trust. How do we fund it? Or Hey, we decided to move on moving to Florida or refine a condo in Florida. Or we're selling a condo in Florida. Or we're taking out a new mortgage for this. Whatever it might be our You know, someone unfortunate got sick and how do we go forward with this or Whatever it might be Those that attention at those review meetings are very important, because that's what they're using our service for and so many times that, you know, indicates maybe a different Way that we're investing their money because of what's happening in financial life. Or they might be taking a major distribution from their accounts because they need to make a purchase of something, or maybe they sold something and they have money that they want to invest. Now. What's the best approach going forward, so it's a very fluid. Conversation going on and on based on not just their financial life, but their personal life. What is it that you're meeting and where is the best place to take it from? And what are your plans for the next five years? And is that going to change and is how people's help, you know, even deciding on You know, after doing this so long to we see a lot of new people, as I said before, but sometimes the frustration that they feel is they start an investment portfolio with they, you know, maybe a broker or register representative for brokerage How's our financial planner? And they're getting the attention in the beginning, and then investments happen and then going forward. You know, they feel like they're not getting any attention. They feel like they're an account number right? But not a valued client. And sometimes that could be because when those track transactions takes place in the beginning does does compensation or a commission. Paid to the financial planner. And there is no response. Fiduciary responsibility of actively managing that. Dad, those accounts going forward, But there's many good ones out there. Not saying that it all right. I'm just saying you as a consumer, as an investor should understand that before you make the decision of who you're gonna allow to assist you. In a very important aspect of your life, which is your investments? Well, that's that's understanding the professionals that you're working with, like I said earlier, so I says an investment advisor, firm and investment adviser representatives, and it be an investment visit doesn't mean in these particular skill and knowledge. It's a license. So you wanna in our opinion, go to somebody that's been experienced and knows the business and like I said, we've been Doing this many, many years but is an investment advisor. What were a fee based in the investment advisory that we like I said earlier that we we advise. We managed money like Larry said the re balance and And rather than be compensated every time we make a transaction, we don't receive any revenue from Schwab, that brokerage all the underlying investments in swapped, which just charge a small fee 1% per year based on the value of your account..

"Hey, Joanie. How's it going? Good. You could have a little more info on the guy who wanted snow like Florida Oklahoma game and the playoff games affected the Heisman. Yes. No, I don't know the exact date that the voting closed but They announced that Nigel Harris was fifth and Justin Fields with six so they had to have a final vote. Somewhere around the way you when they announced the initial for investment. I didn't know exactly when the date was, but I knew was before or whatever. It was right before the you said a couple of playoff games and, um, probably a couple of bowl games that were also registered before that, by the end of the vote. Right. Whatever it turned out to me, and then I had wanted to have a discussion on baseball because it's sneaking up on spring training. And for the first time, I think in my entire Baseball life, which is over 50 years. I'm siding with the owners on having of 140 or whatever game season and Wondering if they can literally not open spring training facilities. Create that if they don't get an agreement Well, they needed as you said, they need an agreement. So let's say the players want to report on February whatever, and there's no facilities open. Oh, they can report. But if no one's there that they can't get in, they're going to hop a fence. Um, they have not come to some kind of bargaining. The situation if they want to start the season one time pretty right and and they did that last year that even when they called off the season at first, they left the facilities in Florida Open for the players to work out. But after some players tested positive, and they couldn't fit all the players in there was limited to who's going to be able to use the facilities because you needed social distancing. They eventually shut them all down. So I don't know that they would even open them. If there wasn't an agreement in place if they didn't know how they were gonna handle social distancing in spring training, That's part of the agreement. They're gonna have to come up with to be able to start a season. That's why I'm kind of surprised. It's been kind of silence. Other than hired. The players objected. But that's all I've heard, right? Um, I think it's rather obvious As you already pointed out, the owners would prefer not to play a full season. I can tell you what the number is. That there and I'm sure they've all gotten together and different. Calibrate vocal television contracts might have different wording to it. But my guess is that they're all in the same general vicinity of number of games. It might be five more. Here are five less there. I'm sure I'm sure there isn't a team that says one of you play 40 games out of the 162 will pay you the whole take from the They want to have a large chunk of their local television money in the bank. They don't want to play a 60 game season like they did last year because they would lose out on a big chunk of that local television money. Yeah, but they don't necessarily want to play 1 62, because every game they don't play if they don't open up the gates. They're losing a significant amount of money, so they know what they want to do that they know what they want to accomplish. The players want to play them all because they say we're gonna risk our out. We might as well play more make our whole salary. So that's the rub there in the same place they were last year, and it was rather contentious last year, and they haven't even talked about it yet. So when they do Oh, it's going to be contentious again. Maybe not as contention because I believe they're gonna play more games than they did live here What it takes the game season. But you're right. The fact that we're hearing nothing.

'Dude, I'm Done': When Politics Tears Families And Friendships Apart
"Now you have likely seen it or felt it yourself. Now A recent survey shows how the nation's bitter political divide is taking a toll on friendships as NPR's Tuvia Smith reports with political polarization hitting a fever pitch. Even decades long relationships are caving under the pressure. It's been happening everywhere on social media, and in really life did straight up there. Dude, I'm done Lose my number that Shimada Davis from L. A. I just hung up on my end, and I proceeded to just block them in every possible way. Joanie Jensen from New York. I hate families, everything but I just don't know and Ricardo de Forest from Florida, there among the many Americans dumping friends over politics. It's one thing to disagree about tax policy, says Davis. But this is deeper. It's about morality and justice. As a black man. He says he simply could not abide his friend of 25 years down playing police brutality. It's like if this is your attitude. I don't respect you. Now I don't because people are really dying. It's also that kind of moral absolute to Jensen, retired professor and sexual assault survivor who cut off a friend of 40 years who was being cavalier about the allegations against Trump's then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He was going off flight. Oh, you drank the Kool Aid Cabin on boy. He didn't do anything. I said if this is his core ethics, I don't want that kind of person in my life Conservatives, Of course. Khun B. Justus, quick to spurn the liberals in their lives who clashed with their core values like life or the biggie for Ricardo de Forest Liberty. They sold our country out. This election is about the soul of what America is. He can be a free country. Andy, a socialist state to forest, a 61 year old steelworker cut off several cousins who he calls hard core Trump haters all they can do it. From the races on man bed on man raises, you know, blowing spittle in and veins popping out of their heads Yolk soy Latino, But I guess I'm some sort of horrible races because I like Trump. Ridiculous. We are seeing more political polarization today than at any point in modern history. Jocelyn Kiley, with the Pew Research Center says about 80% of Americans now have few or no friends across the aisle, and the animosity goes both ways. Democrats are a little bit more likely to say they'd end a friendship. But Republicans, maybe a little bit less likely to say they have friends on the other side, so it may not be all that differential. Everybody is doing this Tania Israel The University of California psychology professor runs workshops on cross the aisle conversations, she says. Both sides have big blind spots when it comes to the morality of their own side, and they all view themselves as eminently fair. And right. When I say all these things, I think I found fairly reasonable and see the other side as irrational. Just something wrong with these people. Whether conservatives like the forest or lefties like Joni Jensen, I said, Oh, my God, he really is brain. Wass. Everyone Tanya, Israel says could use a little more intellectual humility were flattening people out, you know, in terms of our view of them and not really seeing the full complexity of people on the other side. It's exactly what Georgia truck driver Jon Langford says his brother who's gay did to him. He went off on the sand. Essentially, I'm a racist and a homophobe. Just because I'm a trump supporter, knowif stands or butts. Ain't completely cut me out of his life, Langford says he's trying to not do the same and toe hang onto his friends. On the other side. I could assume that anybody that supports Biden is a firm believer that it's okay to murder a baby, but I don't From the other end of the political spectrum. Connecticut business consultant Jeff Maren Steen is also straining to stay friends with some trump supporters. Despite all the invective and insults, you know you live They're all the same or these ad hominem attacks. Maren Steen no longer talks to some of them with others. He just doesn't talk politics. It just feels like the healthiest thing for me to do at the moment. But, you know, I suppose the risk is that I'm just retreating into my own information bubble with people who think just like me. Indeed, experts say more conversation, not less is what's needed to heal the
How Amazon's coping with the coronavirus crisis
"The corona virus has upended the status quo around the world. Cities are on lockdown. Healthcare systems are struggling and entire industries of shut down and in the tech world. Almost no other company is in the crosshairs of this crisis quite like Amazon. I'm joanie salesman and Ben Fox ribbon and this is your daily charge. Then Amazon is crucial to getting people. The things they need in their homes. How is Amazon coping with this crisis? I would say it's been a bumpy start to begin with. But that's very understandable. Considering how much has been up ended in just the past couple of weeks so they had to deal with price-gouging fake products shipping delays there. Now hiring about one hundred thousand. Us employees part time and full time to try to respond to this huge surge in demand as people have now turned to Amazon and some other ecommerce players for just basics like toothpaste food so much more than before obviously which has been really crazy to watch as they're really trying to really change around their logistics to respond to a huge spike in consumers just purchasing stuff to try to stay in their homes during the crisis. So talk to me. Let's start a little bit back at the beginning. One of the problems that Amazon had to deal with as this pandemic was spreading across the world were was price-gouging problem. You know people trying to get any sort of disinfecting things get masks. That's our thing. How did that that seemed like that was really the first big challenge? They face how did they deal with that? And where they are now. Like ten people debt wipes on Amazon and all last. I checked on this. I think they actually shut down listings on a lot of that stopped. So as far as masks gloves Disinfecting wipes things like that. I think they might be selling it directly themselves but if you're a marketplace seller like an independent merchant that listen cells on their website. I think you're now barred from doing that. I know for sure Ebay did that too. And it was because you know if you're going to try to sell pure L. for three hundred dollars and somebody's going to try to buy it because they're desperate Amazon and Ebay both feel that that's a very bad look for them. They do not want to be intermediaries for that kind of situation right. So what would you say the next thing? That kind of six thousand meat is that they made this decision to prioritize shipments of these sort of essentials that people need and that seems like gigantic task. I mean what is the scope of making the sort of change in how they approach? You know the biggest part of their business. That's that's a great question is really hard to answer it because it is so complex. The company sells hundreds of millions of items. So what How how they actually figure out how to do that. Whether it's toys or musical instruments that were now going to deprioritize whereas Certain items like baby formula or toothpaste that. They're going to prioritize and make sure they get those shipped into their warehouses whereas the other items are in. I'm sure it's a huge Herculean effort for them to do that but at the same time. They're really trying to trumpet. This as Haywar here for the consumer. We're trying to help you out. And they understand I mean. I don't mean to sound Glib about this at all but they are definitely making a lot of money right now. They WanNa make sure that they are doing right by the customer but also coming out of this in a positive light I I hope the sound right but that also they are a business. They're not a nonprofit so they wanNA present themselves the right way in this crisis so in order to manage this dramatic change in how they're approaching deliveries. They're going on like an epic binge. Do you have any idea like what are the? What are the parameters of that and is that actually happening? How's it going to be any status update on that at all? It's probably going to take months to hire that many people one hundred thousand people in the US They've also said look. If you're a restaurant employee or you're in an industry that did get shut down. We want we want to bring you in even temporarily because Amazon was struggling to get warehouse workers in the first place to come into their warehouses. They're just hiring so much and they're growing so quickly so this is an opportunity for them to get some new employees coming in while they're slack in the market The one of the problems is that they're going to have to do a lot of these interviews virtually. Yeah so that's GonNa be another limitation that they don't want to bring people in so there's not going to be this big jobs fair or anything like that. That would be a huge problem right now. Tell me if I'm missing anything but I feel like one of the other things that Amazon is how to deal with is like every other business. They've had people confirmed positive. Corona virus getting cove. Nineteen they have to deal with their workforce also in the throes of this epidemic. How what's been a situation for Amazon? Back there on the front lines getting these important items to people but also dealing with a workforce that at that might come down with this virus for Amazon's leadership specifically that adds an additional curveball. An additional difficult element for them to actually achieve the mission that they're trying to achieve for warehouse workers delivery drivers some of which. I've actually spoken to directly. They're very upset. The very worried they feel like Amazon is not standing by them enough. They want more paid time off They want more safety. Procedures in place. Amazon obviously says that they do a lot of that stuff but Were working from home. They get up. They drive to Their office which is a warehouse and they are around other people not a lot of other people but I certainly understand and sympathize with a lot of what they're saying. These warehouse workers in these delivery drivers where they are providing critical need for people especially elderly people especially people with preexisting conditions that are especially vulnerable to the virus But they're worried for their own health which is entirely understandable. So I did write a story about that and I think it's a critical problem. That Amazon needs to find a way to get right. And I don't really know what the answer is there. So what's next for Amazon? What are you watching to be the next crisis the next solution at Amazon? It's really been changing so quickly. It's been changing every day. So it's really hard to say. I'd be curious to see whether they managed to speed up their deliveries in any way whether they ramp up more food deliveries because obviously that's a really essential need. They've also started a pilot effort or effort in Seattle where they're delivering and picking up a cove in nineteen tests. So we'll see if they do that in more places whether they try to use an augment their logistics in specifically related to the crisis and helping in medical needs as well so There's there's probably a lot that we're GONNA be seeing in the next couple of days and weeks as it relates to the
WeWork's Wi-Fi security is trash (The Daily Charge, 9/19/2019)
"Today on the daily charge our first look at the new and improved galaxy fold impossible burgers now at a store near you and we worked. WIFI is woefully weak. Good morning and welcome few CENEX daily charged. It's Thursday September nineteenth. I'm Joanie soften and here art. Today's stories we work likes to pitch itself as a rising tech giant but the company apparently isn't so tech savvy to to put protections on the Wi fi at offers offices rents out the people just looking for a place to work and that's exposing astronomical amounts of Data Alfred Westbound on here so we were it's Wifi. Everyone is on the same wifi network with the same password that goes on at every building so if I know the pastor from one we work. I know the password at like like the majority of we were in New York City so a not safe really bad and also they don't do basic security things on their wifi network like client isolation so they go on the Wifi at a hotel room. I can't see what everyone else is doing on that same Wifi if they have like client isolation which just says I can only see what's on on my own traffic. I can't piece onto other people's traffic. It's very basic security. Measure most hotels are doing this. Most places have shared wildfire doing this. We weren't does not a company that is valued at forty six billion dollars with more than half a million members working out of their everyday of all these startups that have these sensitive documents on their network does not provide basic security measures like that they do provide something called a private villain where which is similar to it but it's a little bit more secure her if you want to pay an extra ninety five dollars a month and two hundred fifty dollars for setup even though people already pay like more than a thousand dollars for rent there they are not providing wireless security measures. We've seen a lot of really sensitive documents from these startups had seen like bank account passwords. log in information like insurance policies job applications. One of the things in your story that really stuck out to me is that it's not only people who work at we work and and are using their WIFI. It's also people are exposed if they simply unknowingly send something to somebody that's working at a we work on the wife. Is that right yeah. We had seen companies that had never worked out. We work but their files were exposed on. We works network because there were working with startups that had been at we were room recalling some of these companies and saying hey do you workout a we work because your documents are on there like network and they said No. We've never really were based out of Connecticut. We've never been in a we were and it turns out. Hey like they worked if somebody that did so even if you never set foot in a we work like if you're working with somebody that does and doesn't you know put on these security measures your documents documents are probably exposed them. We worked network so the things that you've found you only got just a tiny snapshot hostile things that could be exposed in that Snapshot Snapshot. You saw things that are on like the really ridiculous ridiculous in two different ways ridiculous for being like silly and ridiculous for being like. I can't believe that that's just out there for people to the crap. They know how yeah one of the photos that I'd seen. There was a birthday card with like photoshop of Nicholas Cage face on a cat pretty harmless to be exposed on the network but there there were other documents. They're like I had mentioned bank account passwords job. Applications lawsuits were on it because there was a there's like law firms uh-huh based out of that we work like a startup law firm like it's just there and I saw lawsuit related to earn that should not be openly on the network like that right well moving on you may remember the first reviews for Samsung's galaxy. Fold phone didn't go so hot. Some reviewers thought the screen had that little sheet the plastic. You're supposed to peel off when you get anything. That wasn't what it was. It was a protective layer. It was integral to the design and a bunch of reviewers ruined the nearly two thousand thousand dollar phone but the new redesigned fold is finally out and there are a few tweaks what's different unfortunately the noticeable protective layer is now gone so. I can't break the phone by just peeling it. I think they have more like secure seals at the edge of the display now plastic caps at the two points to keep dust lost out. You know you really should not have a two thousand dollar phone that can be defeated by dust and the hinge like that gap is a little bit smaller which I guess is something people might have complained about i. I think the phone is the same as same as well. Yeah I mean we'll have to see how easily it breaks just by folding it which you're supposed to do anyway which like its main feature. Maybe it'll still break. I don't know but I think we've had better reviews of at this time around and finally today the impossible Burger. It's moving to grocery stores the fake meat was the buzz of CAS this year and previously it was only available in restaurants but it may not be at a grocery store born near you quite yet just twenty seven Gilson's supermarkets in southern California. We'll get it starting tomorrow. The company says it will add more stores on the East Coast later later this month and it should be available in supermarkets across the US by the middle of next year so at twelve months package will cost nine dollars. What do you think I mean. I'm probably by it like just to see how it is. I'd rather get that go to or something that has it actually the Burger King near my house is offering it and I walked in and I was hit with this era era of like fast food blasting. I'm good and I turn around one way to cook this in the comfort of my own home one day right yeah and that's maybe one of the plus size is that ah their mission is to replace. It's a it's an ambitious mission that it's replaced animals as a technology by twenty thirty that's extremely Dystopia dystopia and when you frame it that way they wanna get rid of the animals out of the food chain and if they're going to do that it can't just be in restaurant so also just eat vegetables that what is people have been doing that way before this fake meat trend so. I don't understand why everyone's jumping on this now when you can literally eat vegetables instead the thing is people. Don't not just like vegetables people like me. I don't I don't eat meat but people like me and that's probably why for the daily charge. I'm Joan.

YouTube's machine learning can't keep up with its promises (The Daily Charge, 9/9/2019)
"Today on the daily charge getting emotionally and spiritually ready for whatever apple throws at US tomorrow more leaks surrounding the Pixel for Youtube say I failing to protect golden and the special surprise for National Teddybears Good Morning and welcome to C. Nets Daily L. E. charge. It's Monday September ninth. I'm Rigid Carrie Jones awesome. Let's kick things off with our top story today so back in February Youtube but made the promise to suspend comments on videos that featured kids aged thirteen in younger. This was following an outcry over pedophilia lurking in the comments videos with young children included comments with predatory links so youtube said it would just end comments on videos that featured miners who were thirteen and younger and even videos with older miners who could attract Iraq predatory behavior but fast forward to now six months later and Joan. You did a search on Youtube. You've found a number of videos still had comments on them videos with kids. What's going on yeah. It's still incredibly easy to find tons of comments on videos feature kids that are clearly infants toddlers lers preschoolers and then even some videos that show teenagers in this sort of predatory situations. Doing you know this whole thing kicked off because there was of log about a guy who did a search for bikini haul videos and fell tumbled into this algorithm ick like pedophilia wormhole all gross yeah very gross. If you search Teen Bikini Hall even now you can find teens wearing bikinis with comments that are inappropriate and it sounds like what Google was just using this algorithm to automatically detect if there was a kid in the video like what's what's wrong. Why are there still comments as video. I mean there's a couple of things going going on. One is that Youtube scale staggering who has five hundred MIL has five hundred hours of content uploaded every minute so from the beginning of when we started talking. There's there's already like five. Hundred hours have already uploaded. It's a lot but that being said they built themselves to the scale and whenever they have these problems they say hey. We've got machine learning. That's going to help us keep things in line and to a degree they are. We didn't find a ton like a slew of really predatory comments on most of these videos but it was still easy to find them and they made the commitment they said we're going to be disabling comments on videos that have minors younger than thirteen and even if they're at that scale machine learning just isn't catching enough for it to be. I I did one search and found over one hundred from one hundred different channels that had comments wasn't even digging deep this basic search yeah. It was a basic search for a kid focused subject. I searched pretend play and found videos. They range changed videos that had almost no views and no subscribers videos that had twenty million views there was one video that had over seventeen hundred comments and that was one after we contacted did Youtube and said here's a list one hundred videos from one hundred different channels all them by what you said is your policy should not have any comments enabled on them. That was one of the ones they disabled half the disabled comments on half of those after you contacted them yeah. They were cleaning half of them. Yeah Yeah and one of them was a video that had seventeen hundred comments already accrued on it so do they have a statement of like. Why do they any more time to get the you know the whole Algorithm writer. They didn't directly address. What why the things that we found slipped through the cracks. They said look we've taken down hundreds of millions of comments on lots and lots of videos. We're investing harden. China and they use these stats. Don't really say anything like they have a classified here that removes two times as many predatory comments okay. I don't know what that means because they won't tell us what that's off a baseline of what two times of two times three six they're not talking about that but like what do we really. We know what that means. They are not being transparent about where they actually stand on a promise. They made months ago between this and what happened last week. You definitely has to do do more in this area and that's why this matters at this point because you just promise last week that they would be going even further and relying on more machine learning to not only take away comments from videos for kids but also any personalized advertising and notifications into other things to keep watching that. There's also another Google story out today. There's there's a leaked promotional video for the Pixel for smartphone it popped up online Monday and the video appears to confirm some rumors that we've heard last week in the view you can see owners are controlling the phone with hand gestures and they're also controlling it fully with a series of voice commands like which just voice you could put photos. Send those photos to other. The people and you don't have to lift a finger. Cameras are also a big part of this video. It looks like you could take photos really well. In the dark even capture all the stars in the sky by taking a picture of the Milky Way. There's this big square cut out in the back for three cameras and an earlier leaked image. Midge does show the phone could come in a bright orange color along with black and white so a lot of leaks on the Pixel for funny timing for that Joan Down Down Shafei. It'd be funnier if all the previous leaks for picks of four have been from Google itself. This is one league. It's like an actual leak. It didn't come from Google so they didn't didn't have any control over the time. It's just one of those things where you go. Okay the Apple Events Tomorrow and we're all talking about the Pixel for so this is make it'll make things interesting discussions. I think we're GONNA be talking much about the Pixel for tomorrow. Though well it it is one of those things where people who are curious about it. They'll be hearing about it in a few weeks. Usually it's an October kind of event for Google and is the if these leaks are right. You got you know that square cut out in the back and we've seen that kind of leaked out with apple too so it's just interesting interesting. We're going to be coming to you live tomorrow. Covering that apple event a we have a pre show stream starting at noon eastern nine. Am Pacific. We're going to give commentary before the event during the event after the vent we have our team also chiming in from inside the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's campus in Cupertino so definitely stick around for that of course tomorrow for the daily charge. I'm Bridget Carey. I'm Joanie Salsa. Thanks for joining us.

It's tuesday september third. I'm joanie saltzman alfred. Let's get to the headlines here in the u._s. Were coming back from a labor day holiday holiday weekend which like most holidays here means shopping but there are still deals out there for you to grab rick bre has been spearheading cenex coverage of tech deals for years and he's he's joining us now remotely wreck. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks for having me guys. So what are some of the best deals still out there for people right now right so as you mentioned the labor day holiday was a great excuse for everybody to have deals because it's american but we do and although a lot of the deals are wrapping up because it's the day after labor day there are few that are still holding on <hes> for example h having a really nice salem one of their <hes> more entry level the laptops. It's like a fifteen inch but actually has a decent processor and it has a two hundred fifty six gigabyte solid state drive and it starts at just like five hundred nineteen bucks ax which is a really good price for that. I recommend anybody who's getting that. Go into the custom convict tool and bump up the screen resolution two full h._d. That's an extra fifty bucks six the <hes>. I have it right here in front of me. I don't forget another novo. Start clock is down to sixty bucks and this is a really nice item for a college student or anybody. He also wants to be able to wake up with with videos or see a live weather reports stuff like that <hes> the air pods deal with the wireless charging case that was was like one of the all time best deals on that is now expired but you know <hes> black friday is coming so deals like that. We'll be back right. Well something. I've always wanted to ask you and so. I'm glad i got to do this. Live in front of an audience is how do you keep on top of identifying these deals all year round. I can't even imagine and like what you cannot ask magician to reveal. I don't care if we're live. We're not no seriously though i i have a number of different ways that i track these deals. A lot of times vendors will reach out to me and say hey we wanna do an exclusive thing for for cheapskate reader's go out different deals sites <hes> like anybody and then of course i have my spies here and there who bring me the good stuff <hes> the one thing i'll mention though is that for anybody who wants to on attract deals on their own if they're hoping to score a deal on something and they wanna find out when it goes on sale. There's a couple of tools that they can use the help them do this. One is it's called camel camel camel and the other is called honey and both of these let you set up water called <hes> basically price alerts so you let them you specify what price ice what threshold you're hoping to get and it will send you an email alert as soon as that particular product gets to that price. That's a great way to keep tabs on individual joel products that you're hoping to score a deal on that's great so we're gonna talk to some more and left. If you guys have any questions for him stick around he'll be there to answer your questions but next up facebook maybe the world's most powerful force addicting us to gobbling up those likes on our posts making them go higher and higher but it's considering hiding like counts. The company already tested a similar move on instagram in august so this is all part of digital health right this idea that it's not healthy for for us to be constantly trolling and feeding these you know this need for likes but facebook is the one that kind of pioneer across the globe yeah they on often cite and when we talk about dark patterns which are ways that you know pages are designed to make you keep coming back to the reason why the notification is an annoying red teijin not a color that that doesn't bother you when it's just lingering on your page so much <hes> you know their studies on people getting kind of like a dopamine rush whenever they do get like like a like or a re tweet or share on their post or something like that and you know a lot of people who have noted that this is a step in the right direction to kind of hide that so you're not like constantly reminded click on the app and keep looking back at it right yeah and also not only just engagement also it feeds into like self worth and self appreciation when you see somebody else's post gang or even just friend counts which they're not talking about. You're talking about a test for counts. Those sort of numbers have led to people self assessing their own self. Yeah i remember i would delete photos if i didn't get more than ten minutes on instagram while so i kinda shifted myself out of that and and i made like another instagram page has no followers and i don't follow anybody on post stuff on it or anything like that but it's very liberating like the break myself out of that chain yeah the next just be not uploading photos come on myspace. He can't do that exactly and finally finally wi fi. Six is just now arriving phones laptops in network equipment but engineers already moving on to wi fi seven. It's the next standard that it promises viewers better streaming video longer range and fewer problems with traffic congestion. Basically the idea is that it would deliver a wired connection over wireless. The guy that are are stephen shanklin. He interviewed um qualcomm <unk> vice president technology he said like blanket your house and every nook and cranny with us like hyper speed internet connectivity. What do you think about this. Do you know why why six is afraid of wifi seven. Why because it's faster is probably going to be the new standard tendered and like wipe out wi fi six more adopted but yeah i mean it's a very strong promise to say. That'll be exactly as fast. This is a wired connection. Just <hes> from a place online games a lot usually when there's lag people say you should be using a wired connection. What are you doing so hopefully that upends is that and it does bring a lot of new possibilities for streaming potential netflix constantly talks about how they wanna like more four k content and eight k is like starting to become a thing now and i keep looking at it. It's like who has the bandwidth to download all that like boy yeah with wi fi seven. I mean that definitely does bring that possibility right well wifi seven though we'll be waiting a while. It's not supposed to be arriving until twenty twenty four so we've got some time to prepare yeah assuming that an internet will still be there. It will be for the daily charge. I'm joanie saltzman. I'm offering. Thanks for joining us.
Disney Plus preorders offer a big discount, but there's a catch (The Daily Charge, 8/27/2019)
"Today on the daily charge the ever-growing in developing world of five g. rundown of prices plans in dates for disney plus and the mystery of the steve jobs. Look woah good morning and welcome to cenex daily time johnny saltzman. I'm outfitting. It's it's tuesday august twenty seventh. Let's take a look at today's main. Story famed apple co-founder steve jobs died in twenty eleven nothing new there but but a photo of a man who looks shockingly like him has gone viral prompting conspiracy theories that jobs may still be alive and living in egypt to be clear. Steve jobs died eight eight years ago from pancreatic cancer so none of these conspiracy theories are true but some of them are kind of funny. I liked one that had the idea that steve jobs would come back to apple and launch a product. I'm alive. I'm alive howard people on the internet so dumb. I it's not just on the internet. I mean people everywhere so mad every day. When i see stuff i like this. I grew up with the conspiracy theory that to pock was still alive and then he came back as a hologram. Maybe that is what steve jobs will end up doing in one day but it's just i don't understand this like people look alike. That's really it. I don't understand why well part of it is i mean and there is a subsection of people that think it might be true. I mean we got like apple is like there's a there's a cult sort of falling for steve jobs so when you're the possibility that your literal l. messiah could be coming gotten good excites people. There's that but i think most people just like to joke about. I see behind this new company that johnny ives has jumped ship to. Maybe maybe that's a we should insert that into the conspiracy theory around up for sure anyway next up the same five g. networks coming to our phones. We'll also be beaming into cars so they can talk talk amongst themselves c. v. to x. A communications technology using the same five g. networks to let cars communicate with each other with traffic signals and with other roadside thank you so the point of this is that five g. will allow cars if they communicate with each other at improving analogy improves safety but you're securities reporter when when things are talking amongst themselves over corrected networks that introduces security risk and had also basically means that other cars are going to be able to snitch on your car so so right now there's a <hes> ongoing lawsuit that looks at the black box in your car and the frightening system that police are trying to use as evidence in court cases is and the argument is whether or not they can get that data without a warrant because they can get stuff from your car after an accident without a warrant but the data associated with so the music you've listened to your contacts contacts that kind of thing right now it's not clear if they need a warrant for that date or not but that tells a lot about your driving habits and that's why insurance companies want it so much now imagine if that car can spread that information to other cars that are just near it just like a traffic like that you pass eighty-seven traffics and even even if your car is not telling that info fits communicating with other cars like police can just get that from another car that has nothing to do with this case. Everyone's ruins a snitch now and it's all digitally recorded right. I mean it brings up the this this double edged sword that happening a lot as i think the world's largest coming to grips with some some of the downsides of technology is that with convenience comes something lately a lot of it security yeah and finally disney plus is still three months away from launching but the company opened up discounted pre orders this week the only catches you have to pay for three years up front disney plus of course like the netflix version of disney where they're going to have of all disney stuff together and one streaming. Do you think i think i know the answer to this. Do you like the discount so the discount is you pay for normally the us <hes> months and months will be seven dollars yeah. If you pay upfront now the month to month price would be like three dollars and ninety two cents so it's a significant discount but but you end up spending more locked in for three years if you wanted to quit before yeah but this is the only people who are like legitimately thinking it's like getting one of those like two for one deals when you know you only need one and you're gonna spend more money on like twice of of it anyway it just like if you know you're gonna be there for three years. Yeah sure go ahead and get it right. Don't get it just because there's a discount like attached to it right because you're going to spend more money. If you don't want want like that whole the if you don't wanna for three years yeah but i mean i it's of all the offerings that have been coming out lately. You know with everyone splintering <music> off into their own. We're making our own strain service. I honestly think that like disney plus boy looks like they have the most to offer like outside of c._b._s. All access breath all right so i have to the disclosure senior design by c._b._s. And so yeah i mean just the shows on it are amazing but yeah like outside of c._b._s. All access. I would probably say disney pluses like you know giving the most bang for your buck. Yeah it's cheaper than netflix. Already like athletes isn't even going to have the office in two years right. Yeah i mean everybody has a lot of other things besides the office but that's watch friends anyway. We're the daily charge. I'm joanie salesman amount for dang drink lots of water water. Thanks for listening watching and join us again.
Everything to know about the Galaxy Note 10 (The Daily Charge, 8/8/2019)
"Today on the daily charge you knew it was coming an obligation to the masses today. We're talking all about the galaxy note. Good morning and cassisi nets daily charge. It's thursday august eighth. I'm joanie salesman and i'm just all court sharia tip. Let's take a look at today's stories last night. Samsung unveiled not one but two big new phones the galaxy note ten and the note ten plus range from nine hundred in forty nine dollars to one thousand three hundred ninety nine dollars. We've got fancy prison. Medic backings gesture controls in the silence four year cameras and an amped a partnership with microsoft jessica shara you right there for all these announcements. What's the single biggest takeaway for me. I think the biggest thing is instead of just just one bigger phone. They actually came out with a phone with two models. This year and one of them is smaller and cheaper than last year's note nine which is a big change. Nobody's really going long smaller anymore. They're just going bigger and bigger yeah. Absolutely i agree. That is the most significant difference for samsung. What you're doing is you're taking what was the pinnacle of its line. You're breaking it into two parts and there are actually you could say that they're sort of devaluing that note for the longest time it stood as the best of the best that that samsung can offer in the year the best specs the best everything and now there's this lighter version <hes> presumably for people who have always wanted to know but didn't want to i have the large screen or maybe didn't pay that sky high price so samsung's creating options there are also creating different price points and it's just a really interesting shift in that strategy edgy one thing you won't be seeing on the notes your beloved headphone jack not only a headphone jack missing from the new notes but the micro s._d. Is gone for the smaller phones to jessica. Why is samsung taking away all our things yeah. I mean that's really controversy all for the longest time. Samsung has been the hold out the major holdout when these headphone jacks acts are being removed. Remember apple said that courage to do this. There is a shift definitely. You're all courageous. Yes definitely there's a shift in in what we're using tillerson to phone so samsung has said that fewer people are using the headphone jack instead. You'll be using that u._c. You s._b._c. port. If you want wired wired headphone <hes> or you might make the jump and go into <hes> the wireless bluetooth headsets and samsung will be happy to sell you that as well so they said that i think it was like seventy percent of set in the seventy percentage of galaxy s. note users. Don't even use the headphone jack anyway. Most people are using bluetooth yeah but this is annoying for people who have invested in wired headphones pray. They prefer for various reasons. Maybe they don't want to charge it up. Maybe they want something. That will just work with any device. Maybe they spent a lot of money on something really good and they love it but if you do that now you'll have to use a dangle. There is a pair of headphones that come in the box but there's no dangle. If you want a samsung dangle you have to pay ten dollars for it but last night i did go round and i tested four different dangles right with the no ten plus list and they all worked on the same video so i don't think that you're gonna see a lot of problems there. You don't have to bite exclusively from samsung and lastly five g. Super fast networks are it's still out of reach for almost everybody but samsung has two phones now ready for five g. now with the galaxy note ten plus five jeep shara. What do consumers need to know about this phone. Yeah i mean basically it's a mess in terms of in terms of how five going to work so what we saw with the galaxy s. ten five g. was it would only tap into the super super fast millimeter wave networks so these are the ones that doesn't travel very far. If there's a tree in the way the signal wig blocked you'd be trees exactly <hes> but it's what we're seeing rolled out in cities like chicago and a new york and there's another kind of flavor of six six five gee that's going to be ruled out more broadly and it can go farther distances. It doesn't have a lot of the problems more stable but it's just not as fast so that's what a._t. Eighteen t and t mobile their broader networks are going to be so like next year. They say they're going to be nationwide with five g. because when they can they turn this on you can basically five asia anywhere. They've just been waiting for a phone to work with it. They issue is there wasn't a modem that worked with it yeah so the rises going to get this phone. I the note ten plus. I five g. They're gonna use an older modem and it'll still tap into the super fast network that they have a._t. And t. and t. mobile are using version with the new modem and it it can tap into the faster networks but for some reason it's not going to so for a._t. And t. and t. mobile if you buy this device you're going to be able to have much broader coverage but you're not going to get the super fast speeds and we don't really know why that is at this point because the modem can support it so who knows but basically it's basically it's super confusing right that sounds about as clear as five jazz generally. I mean next year probably with like the galaxy s. eleven eleven year. You're gonna have a phone that can support all of the variations of five g. So if you really want gee if you want a phone that can last you for several years. I just wait for the daily charge on joni salesman. I'm jessica awkward name charts again. Thanks for listening.
Ring's doorbell alerts to cops are buzzing with false alarms (The Daily Charge, 7/31/2019)
"Today on the daily charge what is writing on the iphone eleven spotify still the king of streaming and ringing doorbells causing headaches the cops good morning and welcome to C. Nights daily charge. It's Wednesday July thirty first Alfred. I'm Joanie Salton. Let's take a look at today's headlines. Apple reported its earnings on Tuesday night and we've got all the details. The IPHONE sales are down but overall apple's doing pretty good. Thanks to the the IPOD wearables and services like the APP Store Charlotte. What was the biggest takeaway from Apple's call. I think what we're really seeing is that the iphone is struggling. <hes> sales sales have been down for three straight. Quarters apples now really relying on things like services wearables to kind of boost their sales and keep things going for them. <hes> the problem is the iphone is still the biggest product that they sell. This is actually the first quarter that it hasn't been over fifty percent of their revenue since like twenty thirteen. I believe so they're they're doing a good job getting into services and making more money from something like that but it's still is kind of a struggle for them. So how much does apple have writing. Riding on the iphone eleven now yeah it's interesting. I think people are generally expecting that. The iphone eleven is going to basically look like the iphone ten the tennis so the design isn't really expected to change from the past couple years typically when that happens the sales are not that great the S. years <unk> are. There's people aren't going to be lining up for two weeks to buy this probably <hes>. I think it's GonNa be really hard for them. Then to come out with something really super innovative in that phone until we start to see five g and the iphone you know next year or the year after that next up moving on from apple's apple's earnings we head to spotify which had its second quarter report this morning we now know that spotify is more than one hundred and eight million subscribers as it races against its next biggest rival. Apple Music Music John. You're a pretty bright and early for this call. I heard spotify promise to fix a big problem before the end of the year. Why is that right so one hundred eight million A._m.. Subscribers is by far more than apple music and any other streaming service but it was less than what people had sort of been expecting and that's because they're highly discounted leads super juicy student plan. They didn't actually tell anybody about it like you had to sort of you know. Students are people that don't know about a deal because they are becoming. Ming students that qualify for this plan year every year every year there are new students coming in and if they don't market it then people don't know about it except by word of mouth and so they fix that problem. They're actually telling people about this plan. That is a really good driver getting subscribers so they said that that won't be a problem by the end of the year and finally today's main story more than two two hundred and twenty-five police departments part of Amazon's ring video doorbell that lets you record. WHO's at your door that acts they have access to a special police? Puerto that sends them crime alerts. That's when residents post them to the neighbors up our report now finds out about two thirds of those crime alerts are not really crime. <hes> most of the alerts sent to police are just of people people walking around or of them driving neighborhoods and one case. Somebody called police on a detective at her door. After the police responded to another alert she had already sent so it seems like the neighbors APP and ring causing more problems than they are solving crimes. Is that actually what's going on. That's not to say that ring doesn't solve any crimes at all. I mean I is credited with helping solve a murder multiple murders in different states. They do stop some porch like package thieves like that. <hes> but that seems to be the exception to the rule where the majority of these cases are just of people. Oh there's a man at my door that I don't know who it is. That could be somebody trying to see your your package. That could also be somebody knocking on your door asking. If you heard about the good word of the day we're asking for donations or asking for votes or anything like that. The point is that you know the majority of these post that police are having to investigate are not always crimes and you know it leads to a lot of false alarms. It's kind of like a digital like Ding Dong ditch going on now. What is what is ring actually say about this so rings actually supports the increased police 'cause they say that you know false alarms have always been a thing and the the whole point of ring is to be able to call police that being said though it doesn't really address the fact that it takes resources away from police officers that could be investigating you you know actual credible leads as opposed to person who is scared of a car driving around the block more than three times. Thank you again for joining us tag US online and let us know what you want to see on the show for the daily charge on Alfred. I'm charlotte tip from Joni soften. Thank you for listening goodbye take.
Bill Gates's top mistake? Letting Google's Android rule the world (The 3:59, Ep. 576)
"The. Welcome to the fifty nine I'm Joanie salesmen, offering. Bill Gates has owned up to his greatest mistake, and it's sitting on the sidelines while Google swept into dominate mobile gates, said that mobile operating systems are really a winner takes all world and Microsoft missed out on four hundred billion market opportunity when Google became the standard non apple phone platform, and it's true. I mean there's just Android in. There's I less, that's it. Where has that left by Chris oft? I mean for a while, you know, even in the PC world, it was, you know, windows and apple those were the two computers that you can really get out there and really missed the boat there when it came to the mobile market. I don't know if they just didn't see it as something viable. Obviously, we all know how the store of windows mobile came and went, but I think they had come in a little bit too late. I think had windows mobile came out, first, we wouldn't be having this conversation, we, it would be, you know, NAR Chai's hog. About how they said Android further at the time or something. Right. I mean well, one of the things that Bill Gates mentioned as a reason why Google that opportunity was because of windows, dominance previous computing era. They were facing a lot of antitrust. Yes stuff. I mean for, for more than a decade of that started to arise antitrust stuff that Google is facing. Right. But yeah, I it's hard to imagine how different the world would look if Microsoft had jumped on that train when it came right and focused, a lot more on mobile seen the potential that I'd had in the same way that apple and Google did. Yeah, it makes you wonder whether or not having duopoly, but having one of the duopoly be different company, if that would make me. It's crazy. The point that he made though about how this is a winner take all ecosystems. It's because, like blackberry was around then also as was windows mobile and Android, but it was weird that it was okay. We're only going to have these to let me know what he's set that but like. In that way, it was so interesting. Next up in the US FCC Commissioner Jeffrey Starks is leading effort to scrub US telecom networks of gear from walleye and others. Like it those that are thought to be a threat to the country's security. This comes as he was operated. Operators are racing toward deploying gear to build the next generation of wildness wireless known as five G a big topic of conversation on five G week, y'all the commerce apartment has blacklisted, while I and several other companies because of these national security concerns, what are your sources telling you about how much of a concern, these companies really are secured. I mean so most of the concern around, always not around like the phones that you can buy yourself about them building the infrastructure and the networks around it a lot of US government officials have basically like stated that, while as too close to the Chinese government for comfort that if they do end up building, our infrastructure that kind of gives a. Pathway for the Chinese government to spy on users using that network. While way has completely denied this at all time, saying that, you know, we are not giving information over the Chinese government. But there's a big, you know, concern that they don't have a choice if they if they the government demanded that data, they would get it from wall wave like based in China. Right. So the FCC Commissioner Commissioner starts his plan goes takes it a bit further than what others have called for where they have others. Have generally just called from don't use alway to build out five G. Yeah. You know going into the future. So Commissioner starts basically wants to go back to three g and four g networks already exists and take it out. The all out that, you know, you would take out like a building lead paint or something as a safety measure. Yeah. Right. We also have a new Bill in the Senate. That's seeking to take on tummies and maybe a little more transparency around how much data's worth what's the story. Yeah, this is from Senator Warner and Senator Holly from Missouri. So it has got bipartisan support. And the idea is, if you're a tech company that has more than one hundred million users, they, you will would be required to tell the users, you know what data you're taking from them, how much you're selling it for him. What you're using who's getting this data? That companies aren't required. I mean Google and Facebook. We'll tell you what data. They're taking from you. But thing about all the settings I have to go through just to see that. And none of them. Tell you how much it's worth, but I can say this from other data sales, one person, specific date is not worth that much, I believe, one company was selling it for every thousand people there location data. It was worth about nine dollars and fifty cents less than a penny. A person the idea is like, when there's millions and billions of people using it like that all compounds like adds up to. No Facebook and Twitter and Google all these internet giants like that's where the network affect. Yeah. Yeah. For these stories, and others check outsing dot com. I'm Joanie salesman. Alfred, thanks for listening.
Googles Pixel 4 gets a really, really early tease (The 3:59, Ep. 571)
"The. Welcome to three Jinan Roger Chan. I'm Joanie Solomon Google decided surprised, everyone and dropping photo of the pixel forge next flagship phone and something that's supposed to come out until the fall. This is highly unusual. What do you think I'm here for it? Yeah. More transparency show us what you got don't. Let all these leaks legs set the tone in the conversation. That's true last. I mean, the pixel three light the budget phone was leaked completely before got launched Google does so maybe trying to get ahead way ahead of everyone. Right. One thing, one theory that are in lob opposed was idea that they teased out the square Cambe special multiple cameras. The iphone is also supposed to have one and traditionally, the pixel four launches the iphone. Maybe they just wanted to say, hey, we got here. I don't tell us where copying the iphone xactly. We were here first. All right. Let's talk about deep fakes and manipulate content. A video of Nancy Pelosi doctor to make her seem drunk made the rounds last week. Prizing was last week. Maybe two weeks ago, the surprising, how the different social networks, reacted Facebook kept the video, but added the fact check articles YouTube pulled Twitter actually kept on sort of suggests that like there really are no consistent rules about how social networks dealing with this content. And this seemed like they had no idea how to deal this content, and what experts say is that is a real flaw in, how're going to address, even more elaborate manipulations, like deep fix in the future. All the experts say what we need not only consistency in. In policies on social networks for dealing with it at the networks themselves, but also across that they engage with each other, and develop best practices also share resources, the only way they can really address these things if they worked together note that's not something, they're incentivized to do include be weren't in this situation rights, given how different Landale acted. And you listen to a house hearing on deep. Thanks there any highlights in terms of what they're talking about. It was definitely a theme throughout the conversation between the house representatives, and experts on the panel that social media is one of the key weaponization factors. Distributing, this sort of disinformation. And so it wasn't unreasonable for there to be these kind of questions that take these networks to task. Did you see the big Zucker Berg do? Yeah. Supercomputing all but and you know that came up on the panel like they brought up the Zakar thing. And one of the panelists experts noted, obviously, when this video says that Coburg says that I can control the future, obviously, that's not true because if he could he wouldn't be in the message and right now. So, you know, even the fact that I it is difficult. There are defects that are satire that are so Atlanta, they cannot actually believe it's hard to decide win something needs to be taken down under what circumstances, who target is. What are those? What are those rules yet? The point of the story that queenie wounded looking at the consistent reactions was. Yes. There's sometimes a line, their words. It could be parody. It could be commentary. And I think that's kinda wives social networks right now. Our little trapped in terms of like trap, but they're little befuddled in terms of how to deal with these videos. Right this content. Lastly, you want a review of a twenty seven inch Android tablet built into a GE oven hood, sticker price, only twelve hundred dollars a steel steel, would you want to put this thing on your oven plus side? Gotcha recipes and your YouTube videos on how great their in front of you in the pot. Yup. Downside putting all those Electric's right of an over. Yeah. Yeah. That's a little weird. The battery their power source. It's got all that, grease just like there's a lot of cleanup involved here. I don't know. It is on top of another hoods. Maybe. All right. That's one of the story.

Amazon's Ring cameras are building out surveillance for police (The 3:59, Ep. 566)
"The. Welcome to three fifty nine. I'm Joanie Saltzman, Alford. Ing, Amazon's ring smart home doorbells are helping police departments build surveillance networks, right from your neighbors front doors police departments across the country and major cities like Houston down to smaller towns with fewer than thirty thousand people have offered free or discounted ring doorbells to citizens. Sometimes using taxpayer funds to pay for the products. Ring owners are supposed to have the choice of providing police footage. But in some cases, the giveaways come with the stipulation that you have to turn over footage to police requested Alfred talks about what's going on here. Yeah. So a lot of people by rings very popular. They think that will help them. Stop package thieves or find somebody suspicious in your neighborhood and you think, oh, well, if it's just facing up, my doorstep, it's not really anything affecting me or my neighbors, until you realize that your neighbor across the street, also has this ring, and it's facing your house, and it can. Get footage of you and just build that out to your entire neighborhood because that's what it is for a lot of for a lot of police departments. Now they've been seeing that residents have ring so they call up Amazon, and they partner with them in this program called neighbors, which is less social media app available. It's kind of like next door where, you know it's just among your neighbors, and you post footage up. They're like, hey, look look at this person stealing packages watch out for him now when police partner with Amazon, they're allowed to request for footage directly from people so they can kinda put a GIO fence around, like a block, or something like that say, hey, we've been looking for this guy. We believe he's around here, can you send us kind of footage? That's supposed to be optional. But the problem is in some giveaways. The requirements are there are strings attached. Hey, like when we asked for footage, you're giving this to us, that's because we gave you this camera for free, and essentially, that's kind of setting up like a an open surveillance network for a lot of police officers who were never able to get cameras in these places. You know, when you get a security camera, that's usually for like a city or a big area not, you know on your block, and now they have it in, you know, these residential areas that they never really had surveillance footage of before. Well is the shock as reporting, this was shocking thing I think that's the MO the biggest thing that stuck out to me was just how much money Amazon is making off of this. So when you have a ring camera, you don't have to plan for it, but it's basically you don't you can't store any footage. Otherwise, you can just see, like alive, you, but you can save that video. So it's kinda useless unless you get subscription. The cheapest one starts at three dollars a month. And so, in some cases, Amazon will give these cameras away for free or heavily subsidize it. Because it's kind of this model of, like we're going to sell the the blade not the razors. The. I don't know. So in one case where they donated about, like eighteen thousand dollars to one town in subsidies. It turns out that, you know, they gave out six hundred cameras in that town. They can make all that money back in less than ten months, and then just continue to see their profits rise from that. So, you know, it's police like Amazon is asking police and do you wanna partner with us? And then police then go to residents. Do you wanna buy this, Amazon product, right? It's weird. Yeah. And all the money just goes back to him as on. Right. We also have an interview with Sony's, PlayStation CEO are e insure interviewed the CEO, and found out that game console maker is vowing to release have shared saved games backwards. Compatibility and more on its upcoming console often referred to as the PS five unofficially. Yes. So I mean, just trajectory wise, you know, it's probably going to be the PS five, they haven't said anything about that, but yeah, the CEO Jim Ryan this first interview since he started. In April, and he talked about how, you know, cloud gaming is gonna be the big thing Google with their stadia pitch is kind of moving toward that, too. They you might be able to play more games with your friends on XBox. And we might be able to play more games with just people on your old consulate. You might not even have to get the new PS five to play with your friends on that consulate Suming. That's its name a grant feature. We don't have all to play the council.

Apple's WWDC brought dark mode, $6,000 cheese graters -- and antitrust threats (The 3:59, Ep. 565)
"The. Two fifty nine I'm Joanie Saltzman. I'm Claire Riley. So yesterday, apple kicked off its WW DC conference for developers with its traditional opening keynote, and brought a ton of news. We got dark mode for iphone. We got a one thousand dollar computer monitor stand. We got the death of I tunes. Now dark mode, seems to be an pardon the verbal irony here a bit of a highlight of the day. This will turn the background black on your iphone screen and native apps. So if you're looking in a dark place, you won't be blinded by glaring white screen anymore, clear. Why do you think something so simple is getting such a response? I think it's, it's down to two things here. I think one aesthetically it's really sexy. It's different. You know, seeing they had this beautiful display of the jellyfish, and the jellyfish body had, like maps, inside it, it was amazing. I was losing it, but I think beyond the aesthetics in the design of everyone to have like a gritty ray-ban on their phone. It's really basic stuff like battery. Alive. You know, you're not gonna be blasting your idols out every time he switched. You find on and also into the day when you try to digital Dato, which is something I desperately tried to turn down screen brightness. We know that blue light keeps you awake so having dock mode. I think really ties into maybe minimizing some of the screen time, things health and wellness. I think it makes sense. Yeah. The MAC pro was also a big reveal to Mackie's professionals have been waiting seven years for an update since the last MAC pro which has sometimes been referred to as the trash can. But now we get six thousand dollar cheese grader. It's beautiful. I mean, and I actually thought I brought a cheese Greg this day. Two big joke about the old original MAC pro this is this is a massively gutsy machine talking about eight causing on process. Expandable ram up to one point five terabytes already on pro five Eddie graphics cod. So the important thing to remember is that people who care about this sort of stuff. This is the machine if you'll using one of these guys, you on a MAC book, a union, MAC, pro customer, that's been some of the reaction people that aren't in that professional grade, which is a very Michel market. And they're saying W F is up with, like an eleven thousand dollar computer. Why is the MAC pro important? It's important because they really lost that creative markets. So they have the video produces an editor's. They have the sound editors who didn't have a machine, and I was starting to go to competitors from the likes of HP Dell. Those windows based machines. Apple native Mike play in this space. It's beautiful it has the kind of the guts inside the machine. I mean they did. They did a demo with red. Injuring in real time in final Kat, or they were putting in up to a thousand track either one kind of curious. But when you have the ability to kind of do that stuff in real time. You don't feel the machine like wearing off the table. A sound like philosophy fan. Absolutely. And it's all expandable which the trash can didn't have, you know, they really they said that they kind of books themselves into thermal corner because you couldn't expand it because it just got too hot. Whereas this one is designed to be, like, Jesus grading up -solutely cool in every sense of the woods. So. Yeah, I think it's not the machine for you or I, but people that will like it. They will really like it right. Then in the midst of apples, big flashy conference. There was news offsite that emerged about how the US department of Justice could possibly investigate apple as a monopoly. Now, this is just the latest in a string of antitrust developments for apple that all seem to be intensifying. Claire, what has apple said about all this look Tim cook has come out and said? Apple is not a monopoly that they are going to, you know, they'll, they'll thought this kind of thing and naturally, they would because I have built an empire that keeps people inside the apple ecosystem, that's the whole point once you're inside apple. It's very hard to break out. Yeah. But that's the beauty of what they offer. But obviously they've got a lot of pushback app developers saying that you charge thirty percent commission to have apps in the app store, that's the only place they can be. So I think we're gonna see a lot of friction over this. And of course, they don't the only ones we've got Andrew anti-trust measures coming up against Facebook. The tech giants are really under the congressional gays right now. And I think this is really going to be an area that hates up. That's great. Yeah. It's going to be something that develops for a long time absolutely for this, and other stories checkouts not dot com. I'm Joanie salesman. And I'm Claro. Thanks.
Apple is fixing its busted MacBook keyboards for free -- and maybe for good? (The 3:59, Ep. 563)
"The. Welcome to the fifty nine I'm Joanie Saltzman. I'm Shara Tipton. So Apple's butterflies switch keyboards, or Sharjah's, MAC, book would probably tie, but turf. Like. They're getting fixed again. Years of complaints that keys don't type or they type too much with letters, apple is making some of its biggest changes yet. It's making the replacement program free for basically everyone that has one of these malfunctioning keyboards, and it's changed the material that is using in the switch hopefully to avoid double typing letters to think that what's your instinct about a material change, actually fixing all the problems with this. Keep with. It's really hard to know because they won't tell us what the material is. So it's hard to evaluate whether this is gonna make a huge difference. I would guess that ultimately, they're going to have to completely redesign. This keyboard again. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Well, what do you think about the fact that the replacing all these keyboards Frey, how significant that really you know, it's with some caveats it's not like you can just go in and be like, hey, I have one of these old keyboards. Give me a different keyboard, right? It has to be if you're keyboard is malfunctioning? Right. So they say a lot of people are not seeing this issue. Hugh. But I've seen the issue other reviewers the Wall Street Journal and other places had seen the issues. So it's not just isolated. It does seem like quite a few people do see this issue, where in may double type letters or not type them at all or various other things. But you do have to have a problem with your keyboard, for it to be replaced, and it's only for a certain timeframe. So it's four years after you buy. Okay, which if you think about it, that's kind of the life of a computer anyway. Give or take a little bit. And they had they had I introduced this keyboard replacement program a year ago, but it was more limited in the number of computers that covered. And now, they're basically saying if you buy any of our computers, or you buy any of our brand new computers that we just announced yesterday and it malfunctions you can replace it. So the, you know, the kind of gives consumers a little bit peace of mind, because, you know that you can buy one of these, and if there's problems that can be fixed for free, but also it raises some questions about how confident they actually feel in this keyboard, right? If from the very get go of selling it, they're going to say, hey, you can replace it for free, right? So you think the writings on the wall, they're going to just have to totally redesign? I think they're going to have to do you have do win that could happen. I mean, it takes a couple years, I think to kind of completely redo this, but we don't know if they've started on this along time ago. What it was. We also don't know what computers. They're gonna look like frankly, you know, everybody's looking for ipads, and Macs to kind of merge, which apple has said they're not, but we. We, they're going to be making mobile apps work on max. And so they're kind of getting closer to that. So I mean who even knows weeds things are going to look like while the whole reason they did it was to make these thinner and lighter. I personally, I would take like another millimeter thickness to have a board set. Yeah. Next up Qualcomm, a US judge ruled today that the powerful chick chipmaker is in fact, too powerful in a ruling that agreed with the Federal Trade Commission. The judge said, Qualcomm, suppressed competitors, for wireless chips and exploited its dominance to chain charge unnecessary licensing fee. So in your coverage, you've said that, this basically means call comes going to have to change its entire business model. Yeah, yeah. So Qualcomm sells chips, but a huge part of their business licensing, their technology to handset makers, so they don't license to competitors, like Intel or media tech, they license based on the entire value of phone because. Their patents. Don't just cover the chip. They cover other things that maybe aren't covered in just the processor. So basically, this judge is saying they have to license chipmakers. It means they could be making a lot less on royalty fees. Anybody that they currently have a contract with that may have to be renegotiated. Right. So this could just have who huge implications for Qualcomm, and how they run their business. Do you think that ultimately, will it mean that devices that consumers are paying for will those prices, come down because something like this definitely not there is there's no way. Yeah. This sorry. I mean, we basically out in these trials that apple under the previous was paying Qualcomm seven dollars per phone. No way that Apple's going to shave off three dollars off each I phone because of the or an apple just reached a deal with Qualcomm last month and we're just seeing prices go up across the board. So this, there's no way, this is actually going to have any sort of impact for consumer, which is too bad because that is one of the. Things that the judge said, is that this ultimately hurt consumers and caused higher phone prices, but we're stuck with those prices? It's not even going to change it for the people. It's supposed to help. Yeah. Finally Oculus released its long way to quest headset yesterday. VR's been a victim of hype ever since base book bought Oculus for billions of dollars years ago, but it seems like people who have tried quest seem cautiously optimistic that this one might actually be what gets people normal humans interested in virtual reality. You can read more about Oculus and all these other stories on dot com. I'm Joanie salesman. I'm sharpton. Thanks for listening.
Disney is going to take over Hulu. Now what?
"The. Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm offering. I'm Joanie Sossamon doesn't Comcast come to an agreement where Disney will become full owner of Hulu and have complete control essentially, immediately your favorite. Comcast own shows will still be on Hulu until late twenty twenty four by twenty twenty NBC will be able to post on their shows and by twenty twenty two they'll be able to cancel most of its agreements for Hulu Joan how big is this. Well, when they want to clarify that they won't be able to pull anything you said like within a year, the local we'll be pulling anything from Hulu what they will have is the ability to stuff that was exclusive for Hulu. They'll be able to also stream it on their forthcoming streaming service at their themselves. So nothing's leaving who that it already has B C or any properties. Bravo Universal Studios. None of that's leaving until for like three years. But it's interesting in the sense that it's the first time in the entire history of Hulu, which has been around. It's one of the earliest streaming services on next ATV streaming services. It's the first time it's. Ever been owned by one company? And so it'll be interesting when it's not being run by three or more companies that are all competitors with each other. Do you think that this was an evidence -bility for Hulu that it was owned by so many different companies that eventually one would just take it over a completely? It wasn't enough ability for many many years many years there was there a couple times where the the most of whose life it was owned by NBC, which is Comcast Disney, which is ABC and the other one that I can't think of why can I think of FOX, of course, FOX. So is this a good time to get Lou membership now, or do you think people should be holding out? You know, there's got Disney plus coming out soon BC's having their own streaming service. Does it make sense to even get Hulu? No. Yeah. I mean, like there's a possibility that when Disney launches Disney plus in November that they'll be the opportunity to have like a bundle discount. If you get both who and see plus they've said they wanted to do it. But up until this point Disney said we can't unilaterally make decision because we're not the only owners of can now they are the only owners though, so up next San Francisco could be the first city to ban facial recognition being used by city agencies. It's going to vote today as more issues surrounding facial recognition continue to surface now just to make this clear that doesn't mean that stores or any businesses would not be able to use facial recognition because this law would only really apply to city government. So, you know, the police potentially schools city hall or anything like that. Does he go to San Francisco? You can still be have facial recognition happen. Yes. It's not when you're like on public property. So you still wanna pack your face masks going. Obviously this privacy concerns civil liberty. Complains and technology issues facial recognition. It's not completely accurate there's racial buys gender buys and things like that. And they're not the only city thinking about doing this Somerville. Massachusetts is also looking into a complete ban on facial recognition. Yeah. I mean, do you have any thoughts? I mean, it's nice to have places carved out where you know, your face is safe from being wreck. Yes, there's there's no loss on it. Yeah. All of this is being done. And there are literally no rules on how it can be used. So this would actually be a first, right? And finally, if you use what's app, you should update it immediately the messaging service, which is owned by Facebook has really good security features due to its encryption. But it's not impervious. There was Mauer developed by an Israeli company called the group which used it to install spyware on people's devices through just a phone call, which blows my mind. So basically, they all they had to do is call you have to pick it up either. You could like reject it. You didn't have to anything in that call itself, put them our? Yeah. It's yeah. So it was like basically had no click or interaction needed type of Mao. Ray? Right. The financial times reported this first and that it was used on a UK human rights lawyer. As you know, always good stuff going on there when you're targeting people, fighting human rights Facebook said they released an update for this. So like, I said if you use what's app you shoulda update immediately. Literally what I'm doing right? That's all the time. We have for the show today. I'm Alfred Johnny Saltzman. Thanks for listening.
Netflix's price hikes mean its growth is hitting the brakes (The 3:59, Ep. 545)
"Welcome to the fifty nine. I'm Joanie Saltzman. I'm out for being so last night net. Flicks. Gave another update on how it's price hikes are faring. And the news isn't great. Although Netflix signed up a record number of new members in the first three months of the year. The company expects new subscriptions to basically hit a wall in the US. Now, that's in the midst of rolling out one of its biggest rate hikes in the US right now too. So Netflix race. It's most popular plan to thirteen dollars and raised its entry level tier for the first time ever. Do you think it's getting to expensive as you know, everything is always too expensive for me? And I would not pay for that. I'm already don't pay for Netflix. Thank you, friends and family discount. So yeah, I it's not a surprise to me that as prices go up, and as more options com that you know, what Netflix is offering is not worth it to a lot of people, and they're willing to pay a cheaper price for someone like, Hulu, even though it has commercials or anything else, basically. Yeah. Yeah. What are the other things that they talked about during their conversation was about things about the competitive landscape? We've got a big like seems to be very popular already coming from dizzy, and they price. There's like half the amounts yet that Netflix is going to be what what how do you think those things are going to stack up the last time? I was on this show. We talked about Disney, plus and my estimate for how much I would pay for it is five dollars and their pricing was seven. I'm like, oh, we do that. I do your subscription it works out to being five eighty. So it's pretty close. Yeah. It was very close to what I was willing to pay for it. And I think that's definitely going to big challenge for net foot. Yeah. I agree. So moving on apple and Qualcomm, they've been doing it out in court for years, but they before the really big trial got rolling to suddenly settled out of nowhere. What's the story? Yeah. The settlement came during their opening arguments. And if you haven't been following our report Shara tip can has been extensively reporting about this during. Their whole arguments. The gist of it is generally that apple has been using Qualcomm chips for a while up until maybe like twenty sixteen or twenty fifteen or so and they're Qualcomm chips were basically their way of getting like LT and connecting on Qualcomm chips are also kind of the only way that apple phones could get five G anytime soon. But as they were arguing core, it seemed like they weren't going to be able to get access to this technology, and the main argument that led to this court case was at apple felt like they were paying too much for ball com. Chips if calls double dipping, right? Yes. Had not only. Do they have to pay to use the chips, but they also have to pay royalties on the chips itself to kinda get the intellectual property inside of their phones. So they were they were paying like twice twice as much and they were suing saying, you know, we want our money back, and then they settled and also signed a new six year contract with Qualcomm yesterday. So I guess that's the end of that. What does that mean for everybody? Iphones. It essentially means that you're probably gonna get five G much sooner than you thought. You were on your iphone, right? Yeah. Lastly, we also have news out of XBox. The company unveiled an all digital edition of its console is a big deal. While basically means that you're not gonna put any than it. So if you go to any stores, and you know, by these like, this the benefits and advantages of having a disk is that you can borrow it or like lended to a friend anytime you want or you can resell it, even if you have a digital copy. That's not really like something you, and I think Microsoft knows that and you know, they're they can make a lot more money if everyone's buying their own copy as opposed to like selling it, or like, you know, giving it to a used game store or something like that. Yeah. Which this could completely disrupt the entire like used game store contract. But a lot of people I've seen on Twitter criticizing the saying that you know, I enjoy being able to hand these copies over also it's not that much of a discount to warrant getting. It's only fifty dollars cheaper than the act the other Xbox One s. Yeah. Yeah. Do have they said got into the details about if you have a collection of games that you wanna play. We you have access to digital version of it. I'm art of games you've already purchased. I'm not. I'm not sure about that. Yeah. Well, there's a lot of considerations there for all these stories and more you can check see net. I'm joanie. Also, I'm offering thanks for listening.
