"And then there would be the other ten percent is is one of the different you know always if you add in the ceramic titanium that you might have a slightly different mix but i don't. I don't know if it will be that not much broader but i also think maybe the opportunity is here now that the watch proven itself as both a real business and as like thing. That's is going to continue to be a thing where you might have people who say yeah. You know what i don't have a problem spending fifteen hundred dollars on a watch this this is my pa- i bought the stainless steel version for the series era apple watch and i really regret that <hes> not because of the money lebed because it didn't add anything was much heavier the the aluminum and <hes> like y bought bought subsequent apple watches. I've gotten the men black <hes> because the aluminum is it's very difficult to distinguish from the stainless steel and i i really i kind of in my mind nine separate. This like this is my functional thing that i wear during the day doing campaign events in anything that's nicer. I wear like a a real watch to in. Just our audience is obviously very geeky. Go start reading about classic watches. It is really really fascinating thing like how they came up with like just to tell the listeners very quickly you have when quartz watches came out in the eighties. They figured out a way to produce this thing. Ill send electric <hes> pulse into it oscillates a certain frequency they figured how to make it cheaply because they would cut the courts just close enough not precision and then the the the chip inside of the courts watch would actually we compensate for the defects in cutting the courts and would then keep correct time by compensating for that so it would actually that's what the chip was for in the eighties eighties <hes> quartz watches and then when you get into like mechanical watches in you look at the beauty and the mechanisms behind go read about the history of the mak- seamaster seamaster. I've just seen this james bond movies and then you start reading about the history of this thing. It's completely awesome spending fifteen eight hundred dollars on something that is beautiful. There's going to be something that you could like be an heirloom. The wear proudly proudly twenty thirty fifty one hundred years from now that makes sense to me whereas an apple like ceramic watch. It just seems like i don't mind and spending money by do wine wasting it. No that makes complete sense and like i said i mean i don't know how many would sell but i could see. I think what's interesting now if they especially because of the rumors are that we might not get new watch <hes> <hes> internals we might just get new like carter models and so if we start to you go into a slower upgrade canes on the watch and if they kind of reach a certain point where you could reliably say i can keep this for five years and the software updates will continue coming and it will continue working that i think puts a higher price point potentially in a different way but you're right. You're never going to have that. This is an heirloom. I can pass it down like my mom. <hes> <hes> dad got her a rolex for her fortieth birthday and she still has it. You know like thirty years later and it's and she's had the face redone. A couple of times times you know got got a different baseball diamonds and whatnot and it's still a beautiful watch in like it will literally work until the end of time you know like <hes> an and and there are <hes> an omega and certain other types of things are like that too like you said you know the the beauty of how mechanical stuff works. There's a whole fandom and an and people who love that that as much as johnny ivan and mark newsom like love watches. That's never going to translate. At least. I don't think into <hes> the smartwatch realm so i'm with you. I mean like like i said i don't know how big this market is but i do think it's interesting that they're potentially reentering it. I thought it was. I thought it was kind of a sign last year when they were like we will just keep it at the stainless steel. I've always bought the stainless steel. I'm with you. I i didn't get my money's worth the eight hundred dollars. I spent on the zero but i do feel like <hes> the series three which i could have sold them made money off of and certainly with the series spore. I liked material better her <hes> the the <hes> mitchell on the face is better and yeah. It's held up better like to cracks and things like that. That's been like a known thing but i personally i liked the gold color a lot and i like kind of that look. I don't have an omega right like i don't have any other watch. This is my only watch so this is going to be what what i wear <hes> and then i'm gonna use different bands to dress up or down but yeah i mean you're you're right like this is not going to be even if you get a really beautiful ceramic or titanium watch like this is not going to be something that you'll be able to pass down in five years. Let alone you know fifteen or twenty or fifty which which is kind of pointing but it is what it is. I'd love to say i agree with you. I'd love to see them. Slow down the upgrade cycle. I think it would just give more value to the people that have bought at that at the last version upgrade for it was really really solid year for it yeah and yeah. I wish they would just slow that down but that's just me okay. Let's go through a few more of these. <hes> of these rumors another remembered. This fringe ally is at iowa. S <hes> i was thirteen is going born to discontinue three d. touch. I'm a huge fan of three d. Pan she would be crushed. This happened but i would understand it so i'm kind of expecting expecting it. You know it's a weird schism. Now where the only devices the support it are the iphone ten <hes> ten s tennis max and i guess some of the older devices they're still in market get to but in terms of like what they currently sell. It's the tennis on the tennis max that ten are doesn't support it none of the ipads supported and never will because of how that technology works and then they've been able to build you know some different things and to the the software on iowa's to kind of replicate those features but i'm with you. I love three times. Shy use it a lot. <hes> it's something that i think has been really good but i'm kind of expecting the next phone will drop it both for cost and sadly sadly i think that just because discover ability and other things enough people just don't even know about it. You know like my mom had it on a couple of phones now. I'm guarantee you. She's never really used it. I sadly have to agree okay so another rumor. This is from august to apple's next. Ipad is going to have a trouble camera array in it so <hes> i adore my ipad pro. I take every single meeting. I don't think i've ever taking a picture that was serious about with it over. No there was a time when they used to put basically the optics in the ipod they will put on the phones and then they dropped back and stop doing that and the thing is that i could understand. Here's the only way i could see that being useful and in this point it doesn't really make sense would be. Let's say if you were one eight like a really big. You finer do four k. video or something and you had really good sensors on. It and you're like okay cool. I can use my ipad. It's gotta really bit battery big store space again record board by video on it and then i can edit on the device to that's such a small market. I kind of don't get the point like at this point. You know become a joke people taking photos with their ipad the only photos oh desire take my ipad genuinely or documents like i use it as a scanner that is i do too. Well okay so to play devil's advocate on this. Though i mean wouldn didn't having a really good camera setup in this i mean let's just imagine but we used to be the same right in but if they put like a link the biggest constraint on the iphone camera getting better in the general sense is the space constraints right right. That's why you have the bump on it because because they just need those millimeter the ipad has so much space in which is why they can't these gorgeous speakers. I don't know if they really put in a camera that just blew the iphone out of the water something you could use for professional photo shoot for professional video shoot. I kinda think i think that would be a really good argument for the pro in ipad pro i mean i guess i think the bigger argument for the pro. If you really are going to be wanting to do professional photo shoot and whatnot the bigger thing is the fact that it has the u._s._b. Seaport and you can now with i've had less plug in an external hard drive and access. Your photos are plugging a card reader and drag them directly into after using like. I think that is more useful. I don't disagree in theory and i think that you could have setups where you're using it. There's a monitor and screen capturing integrate videos and images. I just wonder in practice how often people actually are doing those things because we used to have better better. Were as good iphone. I've had cameras iphone cameras and also the ipad pro is really really thin. They're still bump so i don't know i i wouldn't be opposed to it but i. I don't know it doesn't do anything like i'm not buying a new ipod and i don't know if this swayed this sort of thing. That would push me to be like oh. I'm going to upgrade my ipad kissed. The cameron is better like okay. Okay so <hes> so we have another claim william this coming through that the lead models of the next model iphone are also going to come with triple camera a raise for twenty nine <hes> <hes> this is from april. I'm gonna call this one true. Yeah yeah the leaks. I think that can build leaks that we've all seen him the ugly array. I think that's actually exactly unfortunately what the phone is. Gonna look like yet yeah how you feel about the <hes> the bigger charter that we're thinking this can move up to eighteen charger. Do you believe that one. I mean i hope so yeah i do too. <hes> you know no. It's just it would be something they could do to make charge faster. I think all of us would enjoy that last <hes> actually two more so how do you feel the other rumors. Coming <music> out said <hes> i phone is knocking five g. until at least twenty twenty. I'm gonna call that absolutely true. That's absolutely true. There's no way because at this point i think even then the note it's only on one carrier. It's not widespread enough. Apple is always slow to the latest technologies for about stuff. They just bought tells wireless business which is good but they haven't had time to kind of integrate all that <hes> you know iphone famously didn't get three g until iphone three g it got lt with the iphone five and or the four the for us and <hes>.

They decided intentionally that they were going to hide the complexity of the battery from us but what that did is a side effect was it limited the lifespan it made these last shorter and and so then when the new you know a sexy renew features comes out next year like Ammiel one doesn't work as well. I'm going to get a new one. How much did these design choices influence? The rest of the tech world like phones used to have walkable batteries until the iphone came along and Apple Paul really you could argue drove the rest of the industry into this sort of more throw away tack. Absolutely they drove the rest of the industry this idea that it was acceptable that you could get away with say integrating the hard hard drive onto the main motherboard.

Why do you think that that shift happened and really hasn't been addressed right out of design?

It's it's over two hundred pounds of raw material to make an iphone but the fundamental product architecture of saying as thin as possible and damn the consequences it really is a challenge.

The products is sustainable except change the design that has been driven by Johnny Ivan his team and there have been A. A number of very specific decisions that they've made that of limited lifespan of these devices I think probably to the Chagrin of apples embarrasment team who then has to support it in the best possible late how much of it is on us the consumer I I mean we have certainly bought them all the time. We've complained about them. You know you've got rid of the headphone Jack. Oh I can't slot my battery out.

We of course also have linked to Kyle wiens piece on our website Marketplace Tech Dot Org and obviously it isn't only design. That's made apple products especially the iphone more likely to get replaced then repair. It's also the fact that a new device gifts introduced every year always at least in theory with some must have set of features that means the old one is now useless or at best unwanted and then new features in its operating system. Them Aren't always available for older phones like in the upcoming thirteen. There's a software fix to keep your battery from overcharging which should prevent your battery from getting old and not holding a tarred so quickly after you buy a new phone except that I._S.. Thirteen will only be available on newer iphone models but it does seem like consumers increasingly want off the hamster wheel research firm Gartner forecast last week that smartphone shipments will have their quote worst ever decline in two thousand.

"When times are tough just kind of common sense but i realized commonsense doesn't always work in the stock market but i think that's what's going on here people are just wanting to a only defensive names so that's that's the kind of action you get with mcdonald's and walmart a doing really well at of course 'em i another thing i feel like i can't not at least mention to you is that a johnny i the chief design officer of apple is leaving the company he's been there since since for like twenty seven years you've been there since nineteen ninety two and of course the combination of johnny ivan steve jobs it came together to create these really incredible products you know the ipod potty i phony i had all this stuff and it really if you reid the walter isaacson biography of steve jobs you know there's quite a discussion of of iv's and then jobs involvement with each other in there an you know is a big deal they created these iconic products the look and the feel of them and it also it was different just have a designer just be so well known in so high up in the company and so influential ential a but you know nothing lasts forever and he is moving on to create some she created independent company which you know he says he'll still be involved with apple i don't know what that means though and it's the end of an era is and you wonder they make two thirds of their revenue apple makes two thirds of its revenue off of i found this iconic product it would not exist in its foreign present for anything like its present form without johnny live and what's next trap or i think of all the big tech names you know facebook google apple amazon apple is the one with the biggest question mark over to me because it's effectively a one one product company and it needs to do something about that and you could argue well you know google and facebook are effectively one products you know one.

"It's it's a it's a very it's a very scrappy company may it was funded by Tony goo Taiwanese entrepreneur with he borrowed some money. His parents were kind of middle class. Well, today bus money from them. You know, this computer assembly business, which is he ready world to coattails of the industries and took off and Moses where it was actually with with companies like like Dell and gateway Dallas specially I think it was a big was that big come upon before apple came along and ten cope. I think you know, I don't think they have they never had the plan to like just ask those everything. And and and and it never really was about getting the lowest possible lay because it's always about expertise and on about, you know, them being able to do to make these products, you know, better than apple conducted itself. Really to be honest. They've always had a very close relationship. You know, apple sends in tons of engineers tons of design is now people Johnny Ivan's design sane. They live for months in the factories. You know, working out how these products get the prototype designed get made and made in huge numbers. And they have these massive massive chains of engineers who know all the different aspects of of manufacturing. And and it's a big job, you know, to get like. A product like the iphone up running when they do a redesign. You know, it takes two or three years just to design the factories the the product line in how how that will go together in the factories, you know, the manufacturing process takes two or three years to to to finalize. So they they signed to get bit by bit. Like, I said some of the MAC with the I'm the I might was doing an Eljay. They asked us to l g and LG was doing the the, you know, the big the Catholic HEB the screen of the machine, and and they did such a good job of that. They they've actually go to other parts of the the the the the contract until eventually they were doing all of the the the assembly battle together. And then I took it a Foxconn and Foxconn, you know, they they built it up over the is, you know, there was a there's been a lot of talk about bringing manufacturing to the US. But it's would be tricky to do that. Because of. Well, from many many, many, different reasons one of them was I think they was trying to set up a new trade. You know, they wanted engineers manufacturing engineers on folks come was able to assemble several thousand manufacturing engineers, and I think Tim Cook's on record saying that you know, that this you couldn't even if you if you've pulled all the manufacturing engineers from every single school in the US, you wouldn't even have half of the number that the China's tending out the next sense. Yeah. So am also it has to do with how quickly they can get them. Right. I mean that like with the iphone it was going to have a plastic screen, and then, you know, famously jobs said last minute he wanted glass screen, and they were Foxconn was able to accommodate that because of their flexibility. Right. Absolutely. Yeah. So yeah. Like, you said they pulled like ten thousand people out of the and studied him, you know, so them they started putting on glass rings of implicit screen. And that's because I like the fighters in these massive mini cities, where they have huge plants, you know, up to like, I think seven hundred fifty thousand people living in these places and it's hugely flexible. You know, the the the the final assembly plant we're talking about final assembly plants where they put the the the iphone together they put the battery in and then the motherboard, and and some other components, and then the screen goes on top. And it's largely hand. It's all done by hand. You know, it's a big myth that this is done by robots? I try to automate it. But they're not quite there yet. So. Almost all the assembly is done on. This is true of apple. But almost all high tech products. It's not behind and it's it's really kind of low tag..

"It you would think that they would have all the machines that they need wire they continually spending so much on on these manufacturing machines. Don't they have enough manufacturing machines? Can't they just? Not the keep changing technology. Right. So they need to keep on needing new machines different machines, plus the growth of it as well. You know, like the the iphone was for the last ten years. It's only it's slow down the last two or three years before that it was sort of doubling every year the number of devices that was selling and it's on it's on the Broncos. I think about two hundred million a year now, but you know, every year they had to they had to double the production capacity. So they were buying a lot of machines just to keep up with demand. But I think it's a lot of it has to do with the changing technologies. We're talking about micro LED that's going to be a whole bunch of new machines to make that on. If you're talking about, you know, putting that onto two hundred million devices, and this is I phones let alone all the computers and all the toddler. It's going to be doing a lot of machines to to reach that that that demand. It's one of things that became clear to me as I was reading this story all linked to. It's just the cookbook outtakes is we always think about apple as a computer company as a design company, but and this is Tim Cook's realm the manufacturing that they do they are manufacturing company. That's what they do. They make products and they sell products, and I don't ever think about them in that regard, the facts, they are they had immense expertise in building products at mass scale, and then shipping them all around the world, which is a critical component of your business when you're selling products. Right. And I'm sure a lot of that makes its way or is included in your book, the magic that Tim cook helped creates within the manufacturing aspect of apple. Well. L D would apple the the manufacturing prowess that Tim cook has contributed apple that must be a significant portion of your book? Right. And and that's one of his biggest contributions dapple. Yeah. Yeah. Well, this is why I'm general these out takes a lot of this stuff. Got cut out this stuff that I was interested in. I was time researching and. You know, the edits an I decided that kind of like it's sort of tripped up the the continuity of the book because of these long long passages about you know, how the factories work how they finance them. How Apple's apple doesn't outsource stuff, you know, to Foxconn to it supplies. You know, people think when they asked us something they just give the the the the contract to a blueprint on the contrary goes ahead and makes it and then two physios. Now, Apple's this this unique hybrid model whether actually spending they're actually sort of the contract often owns the factory and the takes care of the Woodfull's. But all of the the machinery and side is being supplied by apple punt is because it's difficult for these contracts to come up with enough money to buy these enough machines supply apples demand. It'll apple gives more control over what the contract was doing. Like it used to be pretty common. For these factories to run shifts at nighttime churning out. You know, counterfeit products for the black market using the exact same machines. Copies. So this kind of laws apple that's probably the biggest problem 'cause they probably have other ways to stop that. But it lasted like stop. If if they want to stop making a product, then they then they have the power to do that. Because they end the machine we can just take the machines away. Right. Yeah. So one of the designers told me he said that. Fair lot of factors that just you know, they're idled and not running anymore. And there's a lot of is capacity. But also it gives apple spends. It sends us engineers, and Johnny Ivan the design is and these huge huge teams of product design..

"Announcement today from Samsung, the Samsung galaxy fold I don't even know if you guys have heard about this. This is a wild new phone from Samsung, I wasn't even sure this was real until I saw the trailer. And I was like this is this is honest to goodness device that they're making it is a foldable phone, and I'll put a link to the trailer in the show notes. I clan on Samsung a lot. But I I was impressed. When I saw this trailer. It looks like a new and novel phone in a world of sameness in a sea of sameness. We're all the phones kind of look the same. This is actually something that is unlike anything I have seen before we don't know very much about it. I also kind of curious. How thick it is. Because it looks like when it's folded it looks like it might be kind of chunky and fats. It has like an actual folding screen like if you think about your wallet, you open your wallet. And there's two sides. It's just like that except it's just all screen. It's a giant. Lab wits type phone, except when it's close it's slim and sleek and beautiful, and I was like, okay. Well, played well played Samsung. But I got to thinking this is actually really not that impressive. Because you know, when apple releases the next iphone, they got some big features plan. I mean, it's not going to have just chew cameras this year Lewis. It's going to have three three, you know. Actually, I heard that the galaxy full there's going to have six cameras. Yeah. That's twice as many. You know, that's that's almost literally twice as many. Yeah. So not a math whiz. But it's close to twice. But did you speaking of twice twice to catch the price on this? It's it's interesting. But it looks like a prototype. It it just it looks like something that apple Johnny Ivan is an design a gig friends of maiden the live, you know, and that Timken around with it, but wouldn't release to the public. This is on sale. This is gone. Dollars. To think, and it seems. It's definitely going to be. I think it looks too thick it just looks like they haven't slimmed-down enough. Like you said when you fold it over. It's like a big fat sandwich. You know, it's. It's interesting when you fold it out. But seems kind of unusable when you have it folded over, you know, so when it's folded over it doesn't look like it's going to be it looks like it's going to have all the it's going to be fat and thick and. You kind of go. Is it really? I don't really sure that. They've I don't think there's a mock of this. I think I was almost thinking like this. This is cool, but his disaster. No one's going to buy this like what a product that's cool and interesting, but is not going to take off. It's not actually practicable practical. Anywhere. No. But I don't think it has a I don't think it's going to work until it's really thin has to be extremely thin. I agree with you. But I was thinking of a lot of the same criticisms than I thought to myself my God who is sound like I sound like Steve bomber when he first saw the iphone, and he was asked to comment about like six hundred dollars is gonna pay six hundred dollars. It doesn't support Microsoft Word. That's why was thinking. Keyboard a keyboard. Yeah. Exactly. No subsidies, six hundred dollar price tag. But I do think two thousand dollars is is a wacky price unless you're a or oil Sheik or something. I just I know people always say, yeah. But you use your phone every single day. I know, but I'm not spending. Personally, I am not spending to two thousand dollars per phone. I don't care how cool the phone is. I am not spending two thousand dollars on a phone. I don't even know if I would spend fifteen hundred dollars on a phone. I mean, the iphone got to be so expensive. I started thinking about the iphone ten aren't decided to go that direction instead and actually omit and actually deny myself some of the features of the tennis Tech's tennis max because of the price tag, so two thousand dollars..

If you're somebody who needs to charge of a UK plug because this is the first time the apple has shipped a collapsible UK plug since the apple watch the apple watch had a collapsible UK plug where the prongs would collapse inside of the plug.

And now the second time this popped up is the eighteen what USB power adapter charge. I can't believe it's taken them this long to roll out more. But I just bought a couple of these because this is the best charger I've ever seen for a UK plug now because it collapses down. So it won't poke you, and it's Casey listen told us all this is superior plug type. So yeah, Casey loves them. He actually widdly enough like it was very expensive him. But he had somebody go to his house replace all of his wall outlets.

"Okay. So back in the day. No, exactly must've been probably nineteen seventy nine or eighty. I guess. That's pretty much when we get offers. Was after disco. Demolition. Sure. Yeah. And I got a call from. I don't know how he got my home number exactly. Or maybe I got a message to call dick Clark. Wow. But big time. I guess. Yeah. So I called I called him. And he had this idea for a show that was gonna be a Saturday night show. Radio show. TV show TV show and. It was going to compete with SNL which in nineteen seventy nine didn't really seem like a great idea. SNL original cast. Yeah. And it was it was the show the concept for the show was a a bus filled with people that went around the country. Did stuff. That's kind of all I remember about it. And I've been trying to Google it. And I can't really see it eventually became the movie speed with Keanu Reeves. No, it only had one episode aired like one time. John candy was one of the people on the bus. I believe that. I believe I'm remembering that correctly. Sweet. But I don't see any. I don't see any. I can't find it anywhere. But he these people would be on a bus, and they would go they would go. I don't know. I go to where something was happening. And then they would do sketch comedy about it or improv or something and it was going to compete with SNL. And he didn't want me to be on the bus. He wanted me to he was in in different cities. He was going to have a correspondent like gossip. Like, remember Rona Barrett. Shoria gossip columnists had a TV show on all. And in each city. There would be like a rock and roll gossip columnist real. And he would you know? I would do through three minutes a week or I don't even know. But it sounded stupid. Yeah. All things out is stupid. And I I say he's like trying to talk me into this. And I'm like, I gotta be honest with you. I don't wanna do this. And he's like, what is he doesn't? It seems like it doesn't seem like a great idea. It's certainly not something. I don't think I said that I think it doesn't seem like it's something I would be good at which is probably true. Not really like a gossip guy. Yeah. No. I don't know. Did you guys hear about Kevin Cronin? Right. Listen. Here's an all kinds of crazy backstage between shuttle button. Rick wrath, just Chicago rock so Dennis young. Right. He's out. He's out. He's. What's that place down on ninety fifth street the hamburger place topnotch? He's a top notch. Right. Okay. And so j comes in and he's like, what are you doing down? Here you live in western springs. And then they just got into a thing. And I can't even make good gossip. So apparently, big trouble and off Broadway off Broadway. Clint Johnson is thinking about getting into the travel industry like the rest of his family, and Johnny Ivan. I mean, he he he's such a great guitar player. But so can be he and cliff. Just don't get along. Because they're they're they're a decent songwriting duo. They're not letting in a McCartney. Very good sturdy. So I said to him that I didn't want to do that. And he then he he got super. Started yelling at me and call me in a hole and stuff. Like you. Couldn't you stupid a whole. I'm giving you a chance of a lifetime. Hey, man. I I appreciate it. Just it doesn't seem like something. I wanna do not for my lifetime, dick. But I was I was never rude. Like that. I was like it doesn't seem like something. I should do. Yeah. And. It aired like one time and. I think one time and it wasn't good. And it was so it wasn't. I didn't make a wrong choice. But. A and I got to be called an a-hole by dick Clark, which is kind of magical. Yeah. I mean, that's probably the best way. It's kind of like the Pete Townsend interview. That's probably the best way for that to end. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So that was basically, that's it. But I know I know that they shot a pilot. And I believe they aired the pilot and that was it. And I remember John candy being on it. But that's. Maybe if I looked in his IMDB, I could find it. But it was it was not a good idea. I had a lot of offers back then to after disco demolition to do stuff. But it was just for me, Stephen, Gary. So that was also another thing. Yeah. There was no what what about my partner. Now. This is really just it would be you. So none of that stuff seemed like a good idea to me because we were doing we were killing me. We're doing pretty well as a dual. Yeah. Yeah. So. So I said, no. And then he called me a nail she's gonna do and hung up on me. And I mean, I remember I was just like sitting in the family room at our first house in western springs. Yeah. It was just by myself that was law school or whatever. Wow. This looked at the phone Clark. I just hung up on me. I guess that's I guess that's something. It'll be a story will be good story. Yeah. That's something. Yeah. Yeah. So. And again, I didn't make the wrong. Who knows though maybe he sees? Maybe he sees me as the as the next. Isn't he didn't he make Ryan Seacrest? I think he did. Yeah. They groomed him to. Yeah. Fake everything over. I think I have a little bit too much self-awareness right to get all involved in Clark. Yeah. World. Yeah. Get all like jacked for the American music awards or so I just I feel I would I would I feel that I would just end up breaking bad on the thing that I was supposed to be doing. Maybe Stephen a little bit. I would I would not be able to not make fun of what it was that. I was doing right as I thought it was stupid. And I mean that has happened to be in the past. And it's usually not it's not pretty. Identity favor. He just didn't realize it..

I wouldn't be able to do it. Well, that's the thing is that I didn't think I would be able to and this is really silly cheesy. But it's the truth. My mom has no shame. When it comes to these sorts of things and had I told my mom, and actually Aaron is like this is welcome to think of it. I just think about my mom doing these sorts of things growing up. If I told both Aaron, and my mom, but particularly mom, I had the opportunity potentially to take a picture with Tim. And I just let it let them walk by literally and figuratively. Both of these women would have murdered me, especially mom. She would have killed me. And so I was I kept thinking that I got him. I gotta do this. I got to be more assertive. I really wanna be. And I gotta take his time. Even though I really don't want to you. When it's his handlers generous. He was extremely kind generous. It was clear that while it was clear he needed to move deeper into the store at the same time. It wasn't like we were getting shoved out of the way or anything like that. And again, he engaged with me briefly extremely briefly, but it was more than just picture. Hey, thanks for coming. And then walk away. We actually exchanged a few words, and and it made me feel like a trillion dollars. And which is probably what he's worth at this point. Maybe like, you know, a trillion dollars, and it was all of ten or fifteen seconds of his day. And and it is my utmost hope and desire that when you or I meet somebody that that it Myers us even the littlest bit that we have that same grace that he had with me in the midst of such a busy busy day. I just you know, I don't think I could do I I would maybe more likely to take a picture of Tim than I was Johnny. I've because Tim seemed more protocal. You know, like just I feel like I have a better sense for what his personnel is. Because you see more of him than Johnny Ivan Janis kind of desire to be private makes me less made me less likely to take the even approach him that day on the iphone ten day when a sermon the app. But I still think I would probably I would probably chicken out.

I for solid couple minutes while he was introducing ipad to who it turned out to be Naomi Campbell, though, I didn't know it at the time. And I thought about trying to go say, hi, but it was clear that that wasn't gonna work out. But what was really annoying? I don't know if I mentioned this on ATP or not.

At this point, apple is just like hoping if they don't say anything about it, nobody else will say anything about it, and it will just go away type of thing. So let's just try not to address it. Everyone forgets. Yeah, scrub it from our website almost entirely. So are we going to do any type of live live long for this Leander over? Yeah. Are you gonna?

No, but I it's like a twenty one thousand or two thousand one hundred seat opera house or where they're hosting it, which PS? Why didn't we get by? That's fat tissue. Yeah, check the spam folder. It's probably. Got a custom cult of MAC logo on the invited custom-designed by Johnny Ivan team. They've been working on it all week. They're going to be very disappointed if you don't see it and apple shaved hair. Wow. That would be very special indeed. Well, while Leander searches the spam folder for the invitation, that's definitely in there. Let's talk about the iphone x. are so I love the Apple's doing this. So with the excess excess, I can't get myself to stop tennis, whatever the tennis match and the ten s apple gave the phones to a bunch of really mega popular YouTubers like the most popular ones on on YouTube and they all did a bunch of videos drilling all over. Well, this time they did the same thing, but they give the ten or to a bunch of smaller YouTubers. I mean some with only one hundred thousand subscribers. So really I mean in Apple's is really small channels. The x. the tennis and the tennis match were given to people with millions and millions of subscribers. So people have been featuring the phone all day on YouTube. I gotta say this looks like a really compelling phone and we under you're asking me before we started recording. Am I thinking about. I'm seriously thinking about getting one because the sixty four gigabyte model, which is the one I would is only seven forty nine. That's that's in the world of iphones. Apple practically giving it to you. Wow, they have really won you over with their pricing strategy because now you think seven hundred and fifty dollars is cheap. That's what they've done to us. Right. Remember when this used to be the standard price of their top tier iphone. And now it's like they're bargain model. Giving. It's not a bargains phone in any regard. I think it's easy to confuse this phone with the iphone five c because it has all the different women of colors and stuff. But this is not the same class a phone as the iphone, five c, this is a premium phone from all respects BUSTER. It's poor. We're going to say it's a premium phone that comes with an LCD screen, and one camera lens on the back is that is that disappointed, BUSTER or depressed? BUSTER pointed? I mean, you know, not that I need those things. I'm just saying, yeah, it looks really great for the price, but also for seven hundred and fifty bucks when you put it that way that.

"You've raised how much money now total three hundred twenty million, three hundred twenty million raised. That's incredible. Yeah, we the money sometimes over a quarter billion dollars donations. Yeah. Yeah, from a million people. So it's really been led by small donations million people over one hundred countries. I've ten twenty bucks donations so many, this so many. This. What's the biggest donation you're allowed to talk about? There's one family that's given over fifteen million on the overhead side for the business on. Yes, I remember we have charity. Water has a unique business model where twelve years ago we made a promise to the public, and we said, one hundred percent of public donation. NHS without exception will only fund water projects to give people clean water and in Bank account number two, we will raise the overhead separately somehow it no idea how we do it at the beginning that now looks like one hundred and thirty families entrepreneurs that support our eighty staff, our flights office the the Epsom copy machine, toner, right? So that over a million people can give in this pure way and know that whether they give a dollar or one hundred dollars thousand dollars, all that money is going straight to the projects. So we have one family who over eleven years has given or fifty nine because it costs you. You sit around ten plus million a year just to run the overhead, the office operations. He's eighty employees in New York, and you got six hundred fifty around the world that are working on the water project. They're working on building the wells and everything else, right? It's not easy. Crazy man. So is your time and energy more focused on reaching out to the public to get those micro donations or is it I got to cultivate these hundred relationships to make sure we've got the lights on every day. It's a great question. It's both someone told me at once a good seat. Yoda's three things. They said, the vision for the company, hire amazing people, and then make sure the company doesn't run out of money. Right? So so I'm I'm really focused on that one because from a from a business model approach, we can become insolvent with one hundred million dollars in the Bank of the public's money. Right? So all of the money, all these micro donations all the birthday campaigns that are coming in the spring subscription which we can talk about later. We can't touch any of that to pay our office rent or to pay. You could have you're gonna have a billion dollars in the Bank and go broke bankrupt because everybody's checks would bounce. Wow, it's a terrifying proposition when you get to scale. So that's why I spend so much time really on this. In thirty families. We've been blessed. I mean, it's the founders of Twitter. Facebook key exacts at apple, like Johnny, Ivan, Angela errands, its venture capitalists, it's it's much of your friends and forty people in that group.

"Goes into some historical perspective Leander because I know like almost gone out of business at least once or twice rights. One St. Joe's came back. I had a market cap, I think of three billion. Wow. Which was pretty big. But you know, like nothing, nothing. Nothing compared to what it is now. And then when jobs died and cook, took open two thousand eleven. The market cap was I think three hundred fifty billion. So a lot of growth, but it's gone from three hundred fifty billion to two trillion which is which is a two thousand. Times increase. So cook cooks, guidance. Apple has really, really taken off. I heard on Twitter that if you had instead of purchasing amac in nineteen Louis apple found it was a seventy four or seventy eight. I want to say, seventy fool. I feel like out of all the people in the entire world. The numbers. Blindness. Even know I don't want to go into about, let me let me finish by somebody on Twitter saying that if at that time instead of buying a MAC for like fourteen hundred dollars, if you had taken that money and just put it into apple stock and nothing with it this entire time, it would now be worth one point, two million dollars rights, crazy. Yeah. Yeah, it's a lot of money, but I'm people talking about stuck back in. I was looking for. We back in the late night when jobs came back and the company was really in, then you know, and people were selling this crazy, and you would have to be crazy to buy the stock back then you'd have to be absolutely mad. No one was betting on at all. They were thinking this. This is a company that's gonna go down the toilet because it was just like a giant turgid circle. Oh, absolutely. Yeah. Yeah, it was like jumps jumps. He was like he was really dissed like know what he did not have the reputation that he has. Now. It was the complete and utter polar opposite. People thought he was like a slip marketer. You know, like he was good advertising and good at like, you know, sort of looking hip. But you know the the real genius. The wasn't acquis in a long gone. He wasn't giving any respect at all. Yeah. I mean, people would not. You know you couldn't give the stock away at that that time. Can you talk about Tim Cook's role? Because he's been there for twenty four years now. Eighty eight twenty years. Yeah. Yeah. So yes, you know Tim cook. I mean this this is a lot has to do. You know, just finished the awful book, but. You know, he he, he hasn't really gotten respected is cook because you know, Johnny. I've that, you know, for doing the beautiful design and stage, bring the company back and for having that sort of airing instinct for for what consumers wanted. But all of this has to do with, you know, being able to make these devices in them millions millions hundreds of millions billions, right? And it it has to do with building supply chain. And of course like this good and bad because it does that there was a lot of good criticism. You can. You can lovely at the system that Tim cook Bill, but behind the scenes cook was was building this gigantic company, which you said earlier as really, really exhilarated since jobs died. And of course, most is the iphone. The iphone is is an astonishing it is by far and away the most successful ever made, you know, in the history of industry and the system that built it you know is is all Tim cook and he was. Acting to see, oh, you know, for a long time before he became the official CO he he was so good at his job. He was so good at running apple behind the scenes. The cook Mola's handed over to him even before you know, I if we took over as intimacy, he was mainly doing the job before jobs died. And so you know him becoming officials CEO was just like, you know, was making it official, but allowed jobs do what he liked best, which hanging out with Johnny Ivan in the studio, design studio, looking all the new products. So yeah, it's an incredible machine. I don't. You know, it's never been done before. It's an astonishing the size of it at a trillion dollars is like a third of the economy of the UK.

Anyway, let's talk about something that's really going to cheer us up since we've been a little sad lately, John, what's going on with your photo books these days, you know, I found out about this on Twitter, I think, which is part of the reason I want biz in the show is public service announcement. People. Apple, if you didn't know as a thing in their photos application where you can take your photos and you can order a book like Joe abound like hardcover book with your photos, printed inside them, which is a nice thing to do. They're kind of expensive, but they make nice gifts in their good way to there are good, nice alternative to making prints and putting the Princeton make an actual book. It's really neat. They're ending that service and the way you would find out about this in the way that the person on Twitter found out about it as they went to order a book and photos pops up a dialogue and says, hey, just so you know, whereas we're not going to do this anymore after September. First, we're not gonna take anymore orders for books. So if you didn't, I wouldn't have found out unless I had gone to make a book right. Normally I make a book like once a year after I come back from my a Long Island vacation and I have photos than I make a book that's when I would have seen that dialogue. And that would have been very close to September first. So I'm glad I saw this on Twitter. Thank you to whoever put it up there. I'm sad that they're ending this program. Because I have I been printing books for my beach vacations, and I've been going back in time for past years and printing a book like started from twenty seventeen than I went backward to twenty sixteen fifteen fourteen working my way back through time. I made a book for my parents for Christmas gift. I did a book of our Disney vacation, did all sorts of stuff like that, but but you know, it's kinda like whenever you get around to it, it's kind of a time, consuming thing and whatever. Now that I know that they're canceling them, I'm making books like crazy all my money I was. I think I've like seven books and I'm not done. I'm still going because I got I have to race back to, you know, to have to do all the years. We've on a beach vacations and all the major vacations and just I gotta get and maybe asking why? Why bother by just get your book for another place. Apple, the only company that makes photo books, tons of places make photo books. Photos has even has a thing where a third party Plugin system at terrible terrible third party Plugin system for like was the thing not smug mug, snap fish or whatever. Can make a little plug in thing where you can order a book using the photos app. But if we printed it snap fish or whatever, so you get different pricing, you get different layout options, but all those plug ins are pretty terrible. And I've had books printed, not me personally, but I wife for school things, stuff at other other, and they're fine. But the apple ones are very aptly like they're very elegant and simple and not going to say tasteful because it just depends on your tastes like this nap fish wants or tasteful to just it's just if you like, put it this way. If you like, Johnny, Ivan is white room and all the feature lists glass and aluminum hardware. You like these photo books. And that's that's the asset I go for my books. The layout I use is. It's a little misleading abuse. If you look at the different layouts, they have the app is terrible at previewing them..

"They say solid state buttons will make the watch or water resistant that makes sense less space in the design that makes sense you remember we were we there was an interview with johnny ivan where he talked about how software is cool because it could any any functionality could be written into the software but he did say that there's a certain advantage to having a button that does something one thing as the thing you do the most i i actually use the digital credit scroll but that's because i use the siri watch face and so that's the one watch face were scrolling actually does something he's twenty i don't even think about it i the only time i touched the crown is when i'm trying to go to some app and i don't think that even very often what i want on my on my watch my watch don't the crown will still according to this fast company article apple will continue using the current button configuration with a button and digital crown on one side but neither will physically click as before rather than reactive users touch by physically moving back and forth new buttons we'll vibrate little tactic feedback so there the buttons won't move they'll but they'll be there all right i you know i can speak to the experience of of the fake button that with that really work the iphone seven eight the not real button it's amazing it feels great i show it to my friends i'll i'll make them you know like put a towel over it and i'll tell him touch touch the button in they'll be like there's no button like es there's no button maker.

"And speaking of the interview i don't i is the person i came with i've read probably ever interviewed johnny i've read the recent johnny i booked by leandra kanye think which i thought was a pretty good book about genetics gives lots of lots of insight into his carry that it didn't have before and my impression of him in this interview was he was his normal thoughtful you know slightly johnny ivan space kind of person that we always expect them to be and that he actually really admires and his into non apple watches but that he also really likes the apple watch surprise i didn't get anything that was making me think that he was looking down rather watches or anything i he reveals himself to be a bit of a watch fan boy regular watch fan boy and i thought he kind of that was the impression i'm getting them because i didn't know how how how into watches his johnny off and of your mike oh he's actually more into office than i would have thought he was and i didn't think he was crapping on other watchers or he's he's not he's not a he's certainly not a braggart and i don't think he's particularly aggressively arrogant he you know like so casey pulled out a bunch of pocos here and i can see how you might read one of these uncharitably income loy with the impression that he's crapping watches but this this is on the apple watch versus mechanical watches he said sometimes you wear an apple watch for it right utility and other times you'll wear something else for an established and affection and it's like oh so if you want utility you have to wear an apple watch but the only reason you'd wear some other watches nostalgia affection that's i i don't read it that way i read it as he really likes mechanical watches and it's for him because now he wears app watch all the time because utility wise it does a ton more stuff even if you could make the argument that telling time wise it has less utility the mechanical watch but affection that that he really does have an affection for the chemical watches and that he understood what he was competing against because he himself is one of those rich people who buy really expensive watches and cares about them on his friends all design them any super into them or whatever i think that he was describing a reasonable you know way to deal with the dichotomy between your computer watch and you're not computer watch so i i don't know i didn't i didn't i talked about earlier in slack i came from his article really disliking the the writer of the article in the choices he made and basically having same opinion johnny as i always had i didn't i don't think he came off badly in this article at all here's i think my my main point about the condescension and you know of him towards the other watch brands so that the quote you said you know maybe another watch for nostalgia or affectionally that's a big thing right and you know you cover that also there was one where he says i have so much respect for many of the brands dash rolex omega because there's remarkable on jeopardy combined with such an obvious and clear understanding of their own unique identity it's rare but inspiring when you see the humble selfassurance of a company that nores shortterm market pressures to pursue their own path that to me kind of okay so the combination of that along with the like maybe we're mechanical for nostalgia or affection the combination of those things to me says look at these quaint little companies making these quinton little watches they're not doing the correct thing we're doing the correct thing with the market is saying they want their their humble and they're they're pushing their own cats because it's kind of based on based on an assumption that to not have apple watch is inherently worse and at the reasons that you would either choose to not wear one or that you as a watchmaker at shoes not to make smartwatch are not out of merit they're not out of like like what whatever you are making as as a non smartwatch or wearing a non smartwatch is just worse and you're doing it for irrational reasons like like tradition or nostalgia or affection totally ignoring the possibility that maybe just maybe there are ways in which other watches are better than the apple watch because.

"The display goes all the way to the edge of the sprain if it means that i can't pick it up without accidentally during a thumb press on something you fail he get no credit for the defer for the creating a beautiful static object because technology are tool is tools you're supposed to be using of the not meant to be put on a table with land until dead either he ever to be aesthetically pleasing you have to think about its function first and foremost i do i think i think i might fall in gyms court on this for one reason i feel like out there have been some some what legitimate criticisms of apple and tim cooke particularly as lacking that magic vision that steve jobs always had a tim is an operations guy he's the best operations guy in the world uh and he's and there's no doubt about that but he can't be you can't rely on tim to propel the company forward with great vision unita visionary and i think that's johnny i've and i think the take somebody like johnny ivan and set him to building your campus is too is to not miss a sign him but to miss opportunities those two years are lost a little bit i would i would disagree on that though because i think johnny i have as a fabulous designer um but i think that's very different than someone who has a technology vision that those just completely different things at eu technology as anti said it's a tool it does something you interact with it you don't you don't just sit and look at it or experience it you actually live with it and design is necessary for that but it is not sufficient and that's i think you know one of the things that apple has often gotten very right armed it's very easy to say oh steve jobs wonderful everything did was great or the powermac g four cube what ty loved that cuba i bought it love the eu lead seriously looked fabulous.

"Not not on the ipods they had prior to that not on the ipods they had prior to that but an pretty much of consecutively after having said they weren't going to do it they went did it well the style model this dovetails very nicely into last last week i had the opportunity to go see sirjani i've speak at the new yorker tech vests in manhattan and it was awesome i it was really cool and i was right there in the second row got to listen to him talk and of course he didn't really say a lot revealing where they're going as a company because why would they ever do that but he did say something that's very pertinent to this discussion and the quote was he said there are certain ideas that we have and we're waiting for the technology to catch up and i posted their quote on twitter and a lot of trolls ron they're saying oh as resembled those mementos acknowledged still further people balloir but what he's saying is certainly you and i hear and tim cooking johnny ivan anybody else who thinks about this kind of stuff can envision what the ideal augmented reality headset would look like and then there's the reality of curtain technology in physics and everything else and how we bridge the gap between those two and get closer to that idealized version of it is the challenge that that apple faces in any other company that works and technology faces the the eventual goal to get to a certain point certainly apple would like to make some sort of advance augmented reality headset that could complement their current line of products for the technologies assault there and that's what tim sam.
