But the convenience just makes it easy. And i mean there's even i read an article recently that showing the numbers of people who've gone through drive throughs. Just from a safety precaution. It's gone up by leaps and bounds. And they don't think that dynamic is going to change in the future there's like hey it's an easy. I don't get it on my car. I feel safe touch anything content. So yeah so. It's trying to break that habit and i you know i'm all for supporting small business. I know people got a lotta deliveries from your local restaurant.

"So whatever works for you gotta get yourself out there. And it's it's doable. You just it's going to take the marcus can take the time. It doesn't happen overnight. But if you i just gotta go for it and the need is out there. People are starting to get more active. And i'm getting more context now especially now that the vaccines are being pushed more. That people are getting a little more comfortable saying okay. What i need. I need to do something. Because i did nothing. The last year. I've gained weight which is a lot of people. There's no shame in that you know. We all had to cope the way we needed to. So if you worked out some great work out at all guess what start now was obviously the fear factor the name then there was the comforting all of those types of things now in terms of the internet and the online will the virtual training spice. That's a big blue ocean of opportunity. What does that look like in terms of the practical steps for a client that works with you. Sure i think a lot of people scare the hair virtual missing out on the experience. But i tell you that. My virtual clients don't get any less a workout that my in person clients and it just. It's tailored to their specific goals. Their limitations have injury or prior injury. Any pain whatever but then also whatever equipment they have. I have clients that. Have the full set of dumbbells from you. Know two pounds to seventy pounds. Or whatever fancy rats out there. And they've got you know ropes and all kinds of stuff in their garage. And then i climbed to literally have one set of adjustable dumbbells. It goes up like twenty pounds and those little mini latex resistance fans that client with just those pieces will get full body workout because a good trainer can use those pieces. They can also use just straight body weight. I mean that's what we're geared to do. That's what word knowledgeable and so you're not gonna get any less of a workout just because you don't have all the equipment and especially in the past several months. It was hard to get any equipment online. Or if he did it was five hundred dollars. Two sets of dumbbells. It was ridiculous. I noticed versus went through the the demand. Just saying you know. Try to get standby. We'll take you four months to get one if you could so you know. I told people not to be discouraged like it's doable. And i'm literally watching every movement. You're doing the same way i would. If you're keeping yeah. I'm keeping you safe. Which is the primary one of the primary reasons people want trainers is not just accountability. But it's to keep them safe because so many people have improper technique and form and then the injury is just at that point. A couple of things. I've taken from journeys that it's not about having not enough resources about being resourceful isn't it. Now i'd love to i guess. Move into the conversation of. I guess hydration and what's what's your part to play in that component. Cher surf our personal trainer.

Can no trailers come into the country. And and watch it. And i totally get. That amine shocked that they're allowing spectators at all but he didn't really tight and i think that's smart because these athletes you know just worked so hard so it's nice.

Few at the moment so many years. That doesn't they talent pin just in general. Yeah because you know it's cool to washington. There's that in that arena.

That are behind that they're kind of just powerhouse olympian level in some ways in what they do and how they inspired people. So that's kind of where i drew from early on as you have a long history with into assortment classes. Don't you tell us a little bit about that. Yeah do that was kind of the start of off all of it. I was running to as part of my cardio. What my workouts. At the time years ago where it makes running and then working with kettlebells for the strength side when we were in a tiny condo and limited on space and went down to the gym and did that and it got the point. Where i'd never really. I liked the kettlebells strength side a lot but the cardio struggling define what i liked and i hated running. I did it just to check the box. And i make the best play. Listen the world and it still was just suffer through all of it and then it started to kind of just take its toll my knees my joints more and i just said you know i don't know that built-in i really wanted to low impact and discovered the sim bike. And at the time. I was pretty. You know always been pretty introverted. And so i went with the at home. Pelton bike route. So i you know. I'm embarrassed and in the comfort of my own home and i just immediately took to. It was just. It just became like a healthy addiction and i loved it and i was bright after ride building up hundred rides two hundred rides and then finally i had friends and family say why. Why don't you think of teaching this like just inside on jam or one of those boutique studios you have a teaching background. You love fitness side of life. Like why don't you try it out. And i just kept pushing it away and then i remember vividly hitting five hundred rides and i was like i never thought i'd hit fifty rides hundred now. Five hundred. I'm just going to take the plunge sign up for the certification and if i'm horrible at it and whatever so i i did it and then i got certified and then you have to audition to get a spot somewhere whether it's out of our studio which is terrifying..

"Take a look at the market and take a look at the world of finance and answer some of your questions and again a lot of times people, especially right now of either been thinking about retirement. Because they're having too, because like we might not have a job right now or earlier. You know, early retirement and things might need to have a more thorough review. Because maybe we are retiring before we had planned. Can you tell me a little bit about the conversations that you're having? In regard to what are all of the elements. What are all of the things that were supposed to be discussing to be able to calculate? What is the right plan for you? Because I know a lot of times feel like okay, Well, your 65. So you're gonna need 40% in stocks and 60% in bonds. That's it Well before before you even get into how how much you should have in stocks and bonds are different asset categories. And your portfolio, Joanie, it really comes down to like we just said before the break is what What is your income needs s so we talked about before the break of somebody. Maybe needs $5000 per month of income. So okay, so we need $5000. But again, is that 5000? That's 5000 net so you might need you know what you're going to need more than that. If you're gonna be withdrawing from IRA accounts that's going to be taxable. So you want to. You have to put that into the forget about that. But then the next thing is OK. I need 5000 net from my invent, you know till to live on. But I'm going to receive, you know, 2500 month from Social Security minus taxes. Most of that's going to be taxable. So maybe 2000 from my cell security. So then if you if you're receiving 2000 from you so security Than simple math. Five minus two. You need 3000 from your investments. So now you know how much you need from your investments. Well, that's 3000 net so you might need you know, maybe 3600 gross, a 37 dependent on your tax bracket. So Now, you know, Okay, so maybe I need you know, 40,000 year gross of 45,000 Year. Gross minus taxes to get my 3000 are 30 99,000 year. Um, uh, 3000 month net so Now we know what you need. Let's just say you need 40,000 year. And then of course you need 40,000 year from your investments. Well, how how? How? How much your investments totaling and I think the question earlier was $900,000. Well, The idea is OK. Have $900,000 in this produce 44,000 year to get your net monthly income and and keep up with inflation. While the rule of thumb when you when you to withdraw from a portfolio, this is just like a Getting rule of thumb is 4% per year, So that's kind of a good range to start with. I mean, you could do a little bit more than that. My opinion, or you know if you could do a little bit less than that, But of course you know 900 times. 4% is 36,000 year. So yeah, that's pretty much right on track, You know, talking another 4000 year, so that's when we say OK, you have 900,000 you're gonna withdraw 40,000 year. We're gonna keep up with inflation, and we'd run the retirement study. How does that look under all these assumptions and different growth rates? And now now you have a plan? So now the idea is okay. A plan is a plan, but you gotta work. The plan. So that's when it gets down to. Okay, We have the retirement study, you're gonna be withdrawn and keeping up with inflation. So how do we invest the money to produce that 40,000 year and get the growth of the investments to keep up with inflation? And that's the whole idea of the asset allocation and that's when we get down to Well, we should have a certain amount and income producing positions, fixed income but bonds and then um, dividend paying stocks, but we want to get some gross. We want some Some, you know growth stocks, So we come up the whole part portfolio of different asset categories. Large cap, mid cap, small cap, real estate commodities, all different types of bond fund shot term mortgage securities, foreign bonds, domestic bonds, corporate bonds, convertible bonds, treasury and flesh and protected so this stuff so that portfolio was very strategically. Allocated for you to withdraw that income and keep up with inflation. So that's step one having the asset allocation set up but then so important That you know, we really emphasizes. You have to, in our opinion, be able to address the portfolio and make changes according to the short term cycles like we talked about earlier this evening at the stock syrup. You might want to trump some of those stocks before they go down at the stock. Sit down. You might want to sell some of your bonds and buy more stocks. And also with your monthly income. If you're withdrawing, you know three or 4000 month from the portfolio. Well in a month with a stock sit down like earlier this year, like March and April, we can withdraw more from the bonds because even you know, we even though you're put yes statement was down when you have all these different investments in the statement. It's not like every position was down. Yeah, the stocks were down, but the bonds for study, so take more from the bonds. So that's when you really have a first of all. You have the plan with the retirement projections. You set up the asset allocation. You have the strategy to do it re balance and you have a real plan for your financial.

'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

May sound like a broken record, Joanie, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work. Record might be broken and put the strategy works and it stay with you long term objectives and itjust history proves it. I mean, just recent history proves that you were talking 15 weeks ago in the mid March when the market was, you know, going down drastically and went down about over 30% and several weeks and Even back then it wasn't easy to say. But I was saying here on the radio and telling my clients what you have to stay with the long term. Once you try to time the market and try to calculate what do you think the shot term cycles are going to do Whatever you think's going to happen. The opposite happens. It's like gamble. He's like speculation. Your retirement. Your investments are not a speculation is your financial future and you have to take it with the good times and the bad times. And you might remember back then on the radio show is I said, you know, as long as you have a strategy in place and a plan in place and you got to ask yourself, why would I make changes in my portfolio and if it's just because of some shot term? Volatility. Then you're not looking, you know, at the long term picture, and you know what I said back then, And it's proven is well, ask yourself several questions, You know? Are you diversify? Do you have a diversified portfolio? You don't have all your eggs in one basket. One stock of all stocks are too much. You know, toe too much. Anyone asked category Do you re balance Do you have a firm like our was that re balance is so when the equities there are paid, Maybe it's a good time to sell some of the equities of down..

"Joanie was asking you a question at the same time I was asking my son the same question are we would price cutting that at the kitchen table as we were listening to your show I may be on the yeah well I I come to you every week because I get people talking to me all week and throwing question so that I'm usually like alright we'll list and then on Saturday night and we will address that instead of having to call Paula Larry we'll get to that this week and and that was literally how we were talking about you know to have a mortgage or to not have a mortgage all right Shakespearian question you know Joanie was going to happen is people want to call up and talk to you and not polymeric I so much that's why I'll just yeah I it's great knowledge is power and I think before we I had the opportunity to sit and talk to you every week all of the stuff was over my head as well we kind of talked about that early on when somebody's going I I just don't have a mind for it sometimes people they start into retirement now like I can do this I'm a smart person and again you can be really really really smart but this is just not what alleyway yeah it has to be a certain amount of trust right we understand that and we get that it's just like going to a doctor if the doctor says you know you have this ailments I'm gonna write you a prescription I've jotted down a piece of paper and you say to yourself I guess he knows what he's talking about and I say you know you have to go the pharmacy and pick up the hills that he is recommending and you look at a little sheet of paper so I have no idea what this says because all doctors right you can understand all right with the writing and you go to the pharmacist and they they just redid I say all we understand asking like right yeah I just don't have a mind for this you know I that's what I said if you can just like yeah I don't know I'm trusting this doctor give me the right pills are gonna put my body from my ailment and I'm gonna be better tomorrow so my next week whatever it might be but in the interim of all that you go to the pharmacy is fifty seven thousand different types of drugs in that pharmacy and you are getting the one that you are doctor recommended for you because I trusted doctors give me the right recommendation because he knows what he's doing and that's you know that's a certain amount of trust and so that's his world and you're trusting he knows that world and you're trusting he's giving you the right prescription for the element that you have and that's how it should be with any financial professional that you have you have to have some type of trust in that financial professional that that first of all they give me the right advice and they understand the fifty seven thousand pills are on the shelf and which ones make sense for you so to speak without such thank you you know with basically the money doctors in this fifty seven thousand different types of investments and with why we're choosing the right ones that we feel the best for you and again five but this is the only industry where people feel like Hey I supposed to know everything I supposed to do this you know you've been working there a doctor or nurse or whatever it is you know for thirty forty years spending your time doing that bring up your kids and everything else but yet you supposed to know about ETFs and index funds and allocation strategies and income strategies and hot which pension option to choose and social security and everything else in trust and asset but yeah I mean you're supposed to know all that on your own and it's like you know when new people come in to see us or even sometimes current clients have a question there like almost embarrassing I know we supposed to know this but could you please tell me and I say to them you shouldn't be embarrassed if everybody knew everything would be out of business you know I think you know I wouldn't if I need to put electrical work in my house I wouldn't try to do it on my own I blow myself up at higher elevations so but it's funny how history it's I think it's the marketing that people by the stock and looking out much it went up I guess I should know how to do that right well yeah all the commercials like I did it myself I push the the send by like yeah you know how to do that but do you know what you're buying and why you're buying it and how does it complement the rest of your portfolio but this is something that you don't want to find out that you're not good at right you don't take up another hobby yeah that would like I would go fishing this weekend and you go okay I apparently am not very good at fishing that's okay if you're not good at fishing that's okay but you don't want to be going I'm gonna try to do my entire portfolio and all my own investments and then only find out ten years from now that's that was not a talent of yours two and a half months from now yeah I know I really thought I knew what I was doing I was taking all the you know but if you want to right as you said many times Paul sometimes you go okay maybe just to put a portion where you fool around in your yard and that your weekly money we have number of job of many ties to people calling in our our common clients they have their majority of their IRA's Everytime accounts everything with us with the very well diversified portfolio and we're producing the income and all of that but they have they have play money at the sandbox money a little brokerage account where they have a few thousand dollars in there or whatever and they're buying and selling individual stocks and all of that which I think is great you know as long as you're not you're not jeopardizing your financial future this thing be to a doubt that play money and if you are buying and selling and you know the timing and that's not investing that speculation that speculation you know this but for your financial future you want to have a well established you know and you want to invest not speculate you mention the word trust before but that is always something that we now has to be earned trust is earned and it's usually over a pattern of behavior right so if well again when they I've gone to my doctor they've done right by me all of that time then I can little by little get that trust in my meeting with you and with every time we meet I'm feeling better and better you're showing me literally and color and in it you know and a black and white this is what you've made compared to somebody else that I might have had money with for a while and and been able to say what I said when I said you know if you never been able to get me a straight answer like you said you know you go to one doctor and they say you should have an operation so you get a second opinion and yet the second doctor might have it another analysis but that doesn't mean your first doctor was wrong they just had two different philosophies it's just like I say when you go to an adviser you know you wanna know how they get paid and how they can help you and all of that but you want to agree with that philosophy you know some advisors we use index funds ETFs mutual funds well diversified portfolios other advisers might say oh no we just picked the best twenty stocks so we put your money in these different financial products so not to say one's better than the other will which which one do you feel more comfortable and more suited for you want your advice is philosophy to agree with your philosophy and more you know very important too is how will they be uncompensated is a commissions are is it a fee based on other financial planning fees you want to know all that beforehand right all right we've got more coming up we'll be back right after the

DIY Girl Power: How to confidently dive into DIY + Power Tools

"My weight wet for this week. Is that a woman invented one of the first ever circular saws. So that's a fun fact to have in your back pocket. If you're ever underestimated as a girl for using power tools or diy ing but at the time is around eighteen ten and there was a lot of inventing happening and so a lot of these inventions happened kind of simultaneously in different parts of the world where people invented really similar things but like totally independently of each other which is really interesting. So in America more specifically in Massachusetts a woman named Tabitha Babbitt is credited for having invented a circular saw entirely of her own volition around eighteen ten. She basically got the idea while watching two guys. Struggling with a pit saw and at the time those sauce could only cut like in one direction so it made ripping logs terribly terribly. Tedious and annoying. So they'd waistline basically half their energy moving the saw back and forth only cutting on one stroke so it was super inefficient so she basically noticed this and she was determined to make saw that would waste less time be way more efficient so she created this notched disk and rigged to spin with a pedal push of her spinning wheel. How inventive is this? And so basically it. With this invention would could be cut with a fraction of the time and effort. It took to use these pit sauce so I just thought that was super interesting and I think it's funny. How like she used something. That was like classically stereotypically. A woman's role like spinning wheels and applied that to a different field of like manual labor. Were men. Were doing most of the work and then something amazing came out of it so I think it's just a cool reminder when we're talking about like girl power and empowerment within DIY and being in a space set has been male dominated that like not only. Do we have a place in the industry as women? But it's also like we're coming into this to change the game my goal in empowering women to diy. Isn't that like we are just doing it. The same fitting ourselves into an existing place but that we're like reinventing and doing it on our own terms and for me that means like I wanNA look cute while I'm working on stuff. I don't WanNa wear like gross men's word clothing like I want to do it but do it. Cute so you can find me like doing woodworking with my magnetic eyelashes on in a full face of makeup. Because that's just like who I am and that's part of what empowers me and I don't feel like those. Two things are contradictory so just a word of encouragement here. That like do things on your own terms changed the game and if there's parts of like the DIY making woodworking space that make you feel like uncomfortable. You don't have to try to squeeze yourself in and make it fit. You can just do it differently so I talked about this with. Joanie and one of her tips is like orderonline. If you going to stores makes you uncomfortable and you feel out of place and you feel Underestimated than just by this stuff online instead so anyway being home and having all this time to reflect. I thought that fun fact was a good life lesson for us as girls in this space.

DIY Girl Power: Must Have Started Power Tools

"One of the questions I get all the time is like what tools do I need when I'm first starting out? And I always recommend a drill a sander and then a miter saw because a miter saw is really really safe to use really easy to learn how to use but then once you kind of get more advanced or once you need to start like ripping down plywood or making bigger cuts and you don't quite want to make the jump to a table. Saw which can be really intimidating. Really dangerous if you're not using it right. A good like middle ground is to use a circular saw or skill saw and then you can cut plywood by putting it on top of a piece of insulation foam and then cutting it with a circular saw to keep it straight. There's also jigs like Craig makes a Jig that attaches you attach your to it and it helps you make like a perfectly straight cut but with or without that circular saws are really awesome in a really good intermediate tool so. I just wanted to talk about my favorite one so I recently bought Ryo. Ob's cordless circular saw. It's six and a half inches in its battery powered. So that's really nice. 'cause you don't have to worry about being mindful of where the court is and then obviously it just gives you a lot more flexibility and if you have a backup battery you don't really have to worry about power like not having enough but I really really liked this one. Because it's a little more compact than some of the larger saws it still can rotate and do like forty five degree angles. Which is really nice but I feel like it's a really good tool to learn to use because of its size. It's not something really heavy. You need a ton of arm strength to us so I totally totally recommend snagging this one. Plus it's not that expensive. It's only sixty nine dollars for just the tool. So if you've already started building like aerobics set with batteries. And all of that. You can just snag the tool at your collection and it's really diverse. So you can use it for Plywood ripping that down on foam or you could use it for other things here and there like cutting a two by four cutting other boards straight. So I absolutely recommend this. It's a really good for both intro. Beginner diy fires and more intermediate so in this episode. We get into a lot of power tools talking about saws so I just wanted to start off by giving you a practical tip for when you could buy if you really wanted to dive in you can order online for depot. Have it shipped to your doors? If you are staying at home and practicing social distancing. Maybe could snag yourself a new little toy and tackle some projects around 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

"Get me and I didn't get me either because I just felt like why can't I settle in like live life like everybody else in. I couldn't has my manic times which were out of control and then I would crash go into that suppression where like literally. You can't get out of bed. It is not an over exaggeration. Like you just literally cannot get out of bed so I can only imagine as a parent how like you said earlier devastating devastating. It was to watch your daughter just not be able to succeed at lights and not know why exactly you know and me as a parent you know. I was always at her school. I can't tell you how many times I was at her school. Because of like you just said behind Menia I mean I and beat in classroom being disruptive I had to go get her but you know we had to understand. You know like the teachers would tell me because I was. I was her best advocate. Like I was her number one advocate and I fought for for her now. If she did something wrong I would not fight for her. Wasn't that type of parent but when the teachers didn't understand when you know when you are bipolar you're very impulsive. Indeed do act like you go through that mania so I had to explain to them even though she's being kicked out because she's disrupting the classroom and there's a reason for it and there's certain ways we need to be a little bit more respectful and don't look like she's a spoiled Brat at home because she's he's not. I mean. I had disciplined but the teachers need understand a little better. Understand when you have a student. They need to have a little bit more compassionate and understanding as well. Sounds like your cat agrees with you. It's okay I'm it. I'm like waiting for my dog start barking at any moment. So we're we're totally good so no it's just a little bit more into your company because you know I'm I don't have big boobs so the whole boob sweat thing was like beyond me so you know I did a little bit of research into your company and and how did you go around like did you make your. I like the first products yourself in order to make it like chemical free and Dan no animal testing in all that which I greatly appreciate that. You know you did it that way but did you. Were you your own test subject. I guess it should be asking when you first started any now. I started this like I said I was laid off from a and I got all by role ingredients. I googled everything thing. I did my research. What each ingredient would do to your body and I got the ingredients that I would want on my sensitive skin and then I just gave it out to friends and they would say oh my gosh and I'm not a doctor? So he cleaned this. Let's take their rashed away. I'm like Oh my gosh. That's even better but it. It would take the rash away and so my customers take the odor way so I I gave a lot to my friends and they all loved it and right now I have over. Four thousand units sold on Oetzi. And I'm really proud of this because I started this with my own with seventy dollars and I learned everything from Google with my best friend. And and on the five star the good four thousand units on Oetzi is amazing. Actually I tried to run in. Se Shop for Time with I make I make lions lions out of like fabric. Yoyos and I just couldn't do it. It was just so much work. And there's just there's so much more to it than people can even understand Dan that when you bring a product to market. I mean you have to you have to promote it. You'll have to package it. You have to sell it you have to ship it. It gets to be a lot It's it's a lot of work and entrepreneurship like I said I didn't know what I was getting myself into the hard. It's not easy but what my motivation is like. After going through everything I did with my son and my daughter I was like. It's like a blerk because I was working full all time. I have a a a young had young. I have a younger son. He's fifteen now so working full-time taking care of family. Running the business at nighttime and worrying about the two older ones with their addiction. I mean it was really hard and it's like a blur but now my passion and my my motivation is because bu-but I just sat down like. Oh my gosh. boob Alicia has a purpose is more than a product and I sat down and wrote my story and put it on Nazi like and that drives me because I can't stop it goes I like I truly want to help families because I know what I went through I want them to stress out and have the financial worries that I had so the back keeps me go that that is my passion and my my children in your mind motivation.

That are listening. Won't feel like they're the only ones that are going through this now. It doesn't mean that they need to start their own product line go to fund the fund other families but the whole pay it forward ideas rate. And you said that you'll be doing that with wayside.

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. I'm offering thanks for joining us can't get enough check out the daily supercharge our extended post show with special features audience cuny an indepth reviews available now wherever you get your podcasts.

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.

CNET's tech-deals guru reveals his secrets (The Daily Charge, 9/3/2019)

"Today on the daily charge i instagram now facebook may start hiding likes wifi seven already on the developing table and dove tailing off the best labor day tech deals the cheapskate rick reuter is here to break down what still good morning and welcome to seen daily really tired. 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.

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.

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.

"Joanie being what he does, by the way. He's writing fees. Really hasn't started yet. Discussion. And then next thing you know it sounds a lot like. We take a transcript of what we talked about on the show. I hope not in this case, because it actually is done. But you're right. You can get good discussions out of this. But, but, but this is something I think needs to be said, as far as people part of the problem. Of course, the can't get you still with interest rates this low. You can't get anything guaranteed. So people tend to chase yields. Yeah. And there's nothing wrong with chasing reasonable yield. And I think that's the point. So, so let's talk about this for just a minute in the context of a strategy because, you know, me, it's all about, what's your retirement plan strategy, you go into retirement. We know there's a couple of things we know that the stock market is volatile. And if you're relying on the stock market to produce an income stream for you, and you get a point five over the next ten years, you got trouble in river city. Sure, of course. So as we've discussed a million times backed up by tons and tons of academic support this so-called rising equity glide path. We talk about almost daily. The fact that if you spent bonds first all. At least two or three or four major economic studies. Have you spend from your safe accounts? I then naturally, the equity glide path is rising and the key to winning in the stock market is doing nothing. The key to winning in the stock market is don't fiddle around with your stock portfolio. Sure, diversify.

"Joanie, WalMart and other employers. Want more say over which doctor's care for their workers in the ramping of efforts to pick and choose physicians included in health plans as they seek to reduce health spending in the Harvard Business Review last month, WalMart reported that employees in the program spend less time in the hospital need less expensive, follow up care and return to work more quickly. It's a story by Wall Street Journal hospital reporter, Melanie Evans. Melanie, what's up here? Number years. Employers have tried to use their purchasing power, right like employers, buy health insurance on behalf of their workers tried to use that to kind of get competitive prices and better quality when it comes to be healthcare that they're overfeeding. But mostly what they've done is. They've looked at the cost and the quality of entire health systems or across entire medical groups. Right. Multiple hospitals, multiple doctors, and what we're seeing is that some employers that not specific enough. They have started to look at the individual doctors within those hospitals, and they look at how well does one doctor perform compared to another. And then what they're doing is. They're either saying to employee's. You have a you've got you've got a deductible or co pay you've got to pay some money out of your own pocket. When you go to the doctor we will reduce that amount. If you go to the doctor, we think is higher quality and possibly lower cost. We will we will it will be cheaper for you to go to that. Doctor. And in some cases, what they're saying is in the case, WalMart, WalMart said January is they are just not going to cover with their health plan. They're just not going to cover surgeons. They feel are lower quality for for spinal injuries. I like I like the idea for maybe accountability of doctors and transparency perhaps for pricing, but HR determining which doctor you can see that could be a tough one. What's reaction been like, our, WalMart employees? Okay with this. What do they say? Interview a WalMart employee who who actually did end up using this this service. What he did what he said was he had booked the niece new replacement at a local hospital, and then he called the insurance check and make sure everything was sorted out and covered and they said well. We can we'll pick up the entire cost. So you won't have any deductibles. If you go to this doctor in Boston farther away about a six hour drive. But this doctor we've chosen because this doctor does me surgeries all day long. This is what they do. They have low infection rates. They have it. He were of their patients end up being readmitted to the hospital like that how that's the criteria here. The walmarts them what they what they told the employees like this doctor does the surgeries all day long. And we will pick up the entire cost will cover all the cost of your travel. If you go to that doctor, and he he thought it was a pretty good deal. I mean, he and his wife gotten a car drove six hours went to Boston. And he was extremely he was extremely happy. Now, while mart has said that some employees frustrated Wall Street Journal hospital reporter, Melanie Evans, thirty minutes now after the hour on This Morning, America's first news. Bluecross blueshield believe everyone should have access to healthcare. No matter who you are or where you live. That's why in every state are companies are working to improve health and expand access to care from training..

"I'm Joanie Siani upon Larry Welsh here, and we're covering just watching television and listening to the radio and media all over the place. And if you're on the internet, you get these crazy pop ups and stuff, and again, they the fear marketing is overwhelming, and you know, as much as you want to say like, oh, I wouldn't fall for something like that. Or I will do my due diligence. Once you're in it and somebody is, you know, you're sitting there and somebody's saying, but we're going to guarantee the income, and you're never going to have to worry again, people want to hear that they want to believe we want to believe that. And you're going like, I don't this is all of the other things like this whole financial. Is overwhelming to most people just retired. It's like, oh my God. What are we supposed to do with all this? I got to start learning monthly income next month rice, I just retired. And I have this 4._0._1._K. And I don't know what to do with it should I just withdraw from that. I'm getting calls from the company that had the form on case and roll it over to an IRA and I'm getting calls. I'm getting free dinners to go to seminars. I don't know what to do. Right. So we're like a checkoff society. So I talk about in previous shows how most people don't have the time. The knowledge are the MVP to deal with deal with the financial world in. They just say, well, if I can just put if I can just do this, and I'm gonna get this amount. You income I have nothing to worry. So you wanna believe, but like I'm just saying be cautious because people know that are are the financial firms know that and the professionals know that so in my opinion, if you're just being approached to invest in a certain financial product rather than an overall plan. A strategy. I would just kind of like a red flag in. There's nothing wrong with you know. Investing some money in these types of financial products. Just what I would say is you should ask the professional again, you know, how much up front commission. Are you receiving? What are the restrictions? And another thing is like again, one annuity company might have ten different products. So they would ask you want to ask the professional is can you? Explain this annuity from this company versus other noodles from this company. Other words other other movies that have shot a surrender periods are higher. Right interest rates are higher benefits that may be benefit me. But maybe doesn't pay much commission. Just saying right for Larry. The the the good the bad the ugly and the very ugly. I think people just end up getting sort of this thing in their mind. Like, oh, I have an annuity. So I'm all set like without really going. Well, what kind of knew it? You know, I, and as you're saying all all the small fine print when you've been doing this for as long as we have you, and we as many people as pollen I see on a regular basis, you you kind of see a lot of what's going on. And so everyone has an opinion. Right. And so I want to claim any anything other than my own opinion. Because I've seen it firsthand. I've seen where people put three four five six hundred thousand dollars in some of these types of accounts. Overall, you know, they did that a couple of years ago, and they come in to see us in. And they don't really understand what they own all day. Remember was some type of guarantee, and that's what we wanted. And so if the you putting just as an example, you put three hundred thousand dollars in one of these accounts, let's just say so like Paul is explaining you should the person on the other side of the table. So to speak that selling that to you, you should look right in the eyes and say what Commissioner you making up front..

But we traveled so much at the time just from although all those tours and just going around the country to do interviews. It just wouldn't have been fair to the dog. So looking back. It was there. I call what is it like working professionally with dogs because these were not just just your pets? These were like, you're literally your associates on the film. What was it like working with doc? I think a lot of I mean, I love working with dogs. I've never had a problem with them. I know a lot of people are scared of dogs or something like that. But dogs are honestly, so sweet you have dogs who are trained in. No, no just know how to behave around people. It's honestly dogs are so awesome. Fantastic. And just like being able to rerun scenes go over things a few extra times because of the dog ran off of the dog needs more water than dog chased after something that on the corner. Like, that's all part of the fun part is what brings us together because having something so connected. And tied around animals, something that connects everybody, no matter like you. Or no matter who you are where you conference has been really really amazing to see how it also how it brings audiences together. Once you actually get once they're movies released having these dogs at these premieres and just seeing these kids go up to these dogs, and that they're rated because that is what that is what they know. And that is what they love. And that's why these people love these movies because if these pure family films, and these these animals that they love just being portrayed, as these awesome awesome creatures which they are. And that's just super cool to see how that ends up. Helping teach these kids such so many of these awesome morals.
