"Just when you thought the days of peak iphone were long gun. One Apple holds its fourth quarter twenty nineteen financial results. Call in pretty much blows US away. We'll ask an especially all of those skeptical. Skeptical analysts out there. It was amazing apple to wapping revenue result of ninety one point. Eight billion million dollars for the quarter along with a net profit of twenty two point. Two billion that happened to be the best. I quarter in apple's history. They are stronger than ever so every time. Somebody says Apple's out they're gone they're done. I don't know don't believe leave him because apple just keeps proving over and over again that they can reinvent themselves they can figure out new revenue models and even bring old revenue models back attack because it turns out the IPHONE did incredibly well. This quarter breaking down. The net sales by category iphone raked in fifty six billion in revenue. That's about sixty one percent of all the revenue brought in in the quarter and actually the second highest iphone revenue in Apple History. So it had been on on a slide for awhile. It's been a couple years since we've seen numbers. This good for iphone but it is back with the IPHONE. Eleven iphone eleven pro and the iphone. Eleven was the big secret here. We'll talk about that here in just a second but getting to some of the other figures services that brought in twelve point. Seven billion in revenue actually the second highest Revenue Avenue Generator for Apple. Fourteen percent of the total revenue up seventeen percent and it set a new record for Apple Services Revenue Few other highlights apple pointed out that apple news now has over one hundred million monthly users. I found that interesting using the term users and not subscribers members so I suspect that means just the number of people who are using Apple News. I think the subscriber numbers might be a bit lower but they did highlight that in their services also also apple pay revenue and transactions doubled year-over-year. So those are picking up big time to a Lotta time. We'll when we talk about Apple Services we talk thing we talk about things like I cloud cloud apple care those things generating a lot of revenue. Also now Apple Music of course and then. Now Apple's new TV streaming service although apple TV plus plus is probably still on a lot of free subscriptions so it's probably not adding a lot that revenue. I have a feeling a big chunk of it is I cloud in apple music but apple apple did want to point out apple pay revenue on the rise in Dublin transactions in revenue year-over-year. That is good overall. The other big category was wearables. Home and accessories probably mostly highlighted by wearables in the form of Apple Watch and ear pods ten billion in revenue representing sending eleven percent of Apple's total revenue. It's the first time it passed mce revenues ever so wearables home and accessory now accounts for more war of apples revenue than the MAC itself. Apple Watch apple says set new revenue records and seventy five percent of Apple. Watch purchases. They they say were were from people who were new to the product so a lot of people jumping in on Apple Watch out. Of course apple doesn't break out individual numbers within the category category. So we don't know how much of this is Apple Watch how much is ear pods. How much is home pod and other accessories but overall ten billion revenue? That's not too you shall be and as far as air pods go. Apple did comment that they are still struggling to meet demand for air pods pro so I would assume this. This number could have been even higher if apple could have kept up with demand so we don't know if they have just a supply chain problem there or it's just demand being super super super high. I have a feeling it's probably the latter rounding out the numbers Mac brought in seventy seven point two excuse me. Billion in revenue representing eight percent. Want of the total revenue in IPAD came in at six billion for seven percent of total revenue and that rounds out all of the various products and categories so overall amazing quarter for apple and again the turnaround in iphone revenue seems to be led by the success S. of the IPHONE. Eleven as a matter of fact Tim Cook pointed out that the iphone eleven was the top selling iphone model every week in the December number quarter so that proving very popular which is another reason why I think we're hearing Strong rumors that apple is looking to bring out a successor. Due to the lower cost iphone the iphone s. e. and we'll talk more about that in just a moment but wanted to kick things off on a really good positive note for apple and of course if these quarterly numbers could not have been better moving onto some apple. TV Plus News. And I was having a little bit of Deja do when I read the story but CNBC cited sources familiar with the matter. Claiming that apple had been in discussions were it was at least considering a possible acquisition of MGM as a way to build out their content for their apple TV plus plus streaming service. And the reason I was having deja-vu was because this was the second time we have discussed the deal between apple in MGM. You might remember from about a month ago or so. A report from the Wall Street Journal in December that mentioned a possible content deal with apple at MGM Liam not necessarily a full buyout right. Now what we're hearing is there seemed to have been at least preliminary talks between apple and MGM to gauge gauge interest. In a possible buyout of the company. It's unclear if any additional discussions are going on or if progress is going further at all But something apparently did happen. This is not also not the only time that we've heard at that. Apple possibly has an interest in purchasing traditional media companies or production studios. You may remember that there were reports awhile back. That apple lost out in a bid to warner media for purchasing j.j Abrams Abrahams Studio a studio Bad robot and that apple was also reportedly exploring and acquisition of the film studio a twenty four so far none of that. What has happened apple has been just either buying content or buying shows or producing some of their own shows buying up? MGM's Catalog Log. which was reported or is reportedly worth more than ten billion dollars? could be a good acquisition for apple if they wanted to get a bunch of back catalogue stuff or if they wanted to get access us to some pretty rich content and properties things like James Bond. which would be very interesting if apple could put together like James Bond TV series? That could be pretty neat but still I'm not sure at this point. Apple is really looking to build out a large back catalogue of shows We keep hearing these reports. But we don't see them pulling the trigger on anything and I think that's likely deliberate. They're starting to realize that that's probably something that they don't need More and more traditional studios in media companies are starting to silo their own content behind their own streaming efforts in it seems like a lot of the pioneering fearing streaming services the DIREC- streaming services like Apple Netflix and Amazon. They are getting more and more interested in producing their own content or purchasing new and original content. That's exclusive to their networks and I imagine that's what apple is planning on continuing to do rather than trying to fill allowed back catalog just producing their own content Another thing I can think of is a better place to spend the money would be in acquiring or gaining licensing rights. It's two characters and franchises and of course one way to do that would be to buy existing production companies that already have those rights. But I think just going after that stuff directly Could to help them. Produce the next generation of new shows exclusive to their platform Overall my opinion is apple. Tends to look forward not backward and I'm not sure the future of streaming media really is in back catalogue staff. I do think it's important maybe for drying in new customers upfront front but I think more and more Most people are interested in new shows. I think a lot of people stick around for a large back catalogue. I AH having access to a lot of content always great but I think you can build that up and do it moving forward and if Netflix Xeni example I think they've kind of proven that right there. They're losing a lot of their content like I said as traditional Networks and studios and things start to silo blue their own content behind their own pay walls and Amazon. Saying go for it. We're GONNA just keep producing a million of our our own shows and we'll keep our customers summers that way and it seems to be working for them and I think that's the plan apple will take as well. I think it's also worth pointing out that apple isn't I don't think at this point looking to be really huge really fast. I think they're going to do their typical thing which is a slow buildup of content. Over time they will prove themselves all of us in the long run Much in the same way as they did with apple music if you remember when they first launched their catalog wasn't definitely not the biggest catalog out there but but they kept working on it. They kept improving it slowly growing it until they were a significant player in the market. And I think that's something that apple tends to be really good at and I think that's what they will focus on with apple. TV plus an as far as them struggling with apple TV plus and their content. Can't we hear that a lot but there's not allowed. I evidence to show that that's exactly what's happening. As a matter of fact this week we got some evidence to the contrary from a company called Parrot analytics this was reported by business insider and they claim that six of the top ten streamed shows in in the fourth quarter of two thousand nineteen came from Apple. TV Plus Yeah. Six of the top. Ten remember apple didn't have that many shows does when they launched the service but in the top ten according to Perrette analytics truth be told servant see for all mankind leaned Dickinson and the morning show. They were all in the list they were not at the top. The top three were the witcher from net flicks. The man delorean and number two from Disney and Harley Quinn on DC Universe is that what the channels got the DC streaming service that came in at number three but apple was right after that. With all of these shows with One or two I think additional net flicks shows mixed in so apple had more shows in that top ten list than net flicks or or Disney or Amazon Even combined so I thought that was pretty impressive and shows that that focus on quality might just be paying off and they continue to grow the talent that they're putting behind apple. TV Plus Apple has reportedly picked up former network engineer or Netflix network engineer Roussillon Mesh Enberg. Who was part of the team that built out the technology for Netflix streaming? Service Service. He's now going to be part of Apple's apple. TV pluses network team. This is according to a report. In The Wall Street Journal He was involved in projects at net flicks to create faster and more consistent service and the assumption is. That's what he'll be doing for. Apple is well. His linked in profile was recently changed and he now lists himself as a engineering lead for Apple Apple. Also another exclusive deal with a former. HBO Executive this is according onto deadline. Apple made a deal with Karmi slotnick a former stars in. HBO Programming Executive and while Alad Stars and HBO Slotnick Oversaw. The production of hits like band of brothers. Sopranos American gods an outlander so so again apple picking up some very talented Very well connected people from the business to build out their service and I only expect it to get better and better and we've still got some great shows coming including the new Show that's based on Isaac Asimov's Foundation Shen novels This week we heard a report that claims that apple's up to upcoming adaptation of those novels for Apple TV plus will be produced in Ireland Orland and it will end up being one of Ireland's largest single productions ever made screen Ireland claims that the production will be filmed At Troy Studios in Limerick in southern Ireland and employ over five hundred people. The foundation series is expected to be a ten episode. The series developed by sky. Dance Television and it is being written by just Josh Friedman and David s square and is going to start jared Harris Who was in chair? Noble and Lee pace from halt and catch fire..

"But we definitely pitched lightly on season five, and but also like wanted to make sure I think like the end of season three was like a cliffhanger with like Kristen wig with a gun on a boat, and it wasn't. Exactly like that's the season. You know? And then the end of season for was a little bit more like this could live as the end of the season. Yeah. Interesting. Yeah. I wanna ask all of you about like, let's get. Let's get real deepen process. Let's get into the stuff that no other podcasts wants to talk about. When you are on script, or when you are left to your own devices. What is your process look like how do you get the work done? Like, go to script. Yeah. I mean, I imagine on most shows you're walking out with a pretty good outline pretty filled in outline. So you're working off of that. So and usually you'll have about a week, maybe less, maybe a little more. But taking those things for granted. What is your daily like when you're on script? I like to start by saying that a writers guild says you have two weeks. Yes. Nobody in ten years. I've never been given two weeks, but far listeners let's just say what we are legally allowed to have. And what we're actually given is not that. Yeah. It's not that. So for all the newbies if you cannot write quickly in three days, you may not survive yet. So get those words permitted up before you get into that community world feels like three days is the minimum that people have instead of like, twelve hours. Yeah. Three three days on hand to fight. I've been given a lot of days. And just because it, and I'm not taking all those days. You know, wanna turn it in and bring it into the room more because it's a first year show, and it's a Netflix show. And so you know, we finish everything before production. So I kinda wanted more more of the the room opinion of it before it kind of went off for myself. I like to write dirty draft people call it a vomit draft. I don't like vomit, but a'dirty draft dirty draft is like yet own shower things, it kinda nasty lot of Typos. Maybe like I don't give shit about any of that stuff in the actually ever because I'm like get it out. I I'll hire proof reader on my own pilots before I go, and I'm like, okay, go in just it out. But I do if it's a half hour. I could do a'dirty draft in a day if I breathe a little bit probably two to three days. Let's reasonable. Yeah. And then sort of get that out. Yeah. Yeah. And then, you know, I take a little time. And you know, go to bed early take hit off the packs vape. And I'm dislike tomorrow, you're going to hit it. It's going be a clean draft. Amelia. Let's talk about the dirty draft for a minute. And I'm gonna I'm gonna dig weigh in on this stuff because I'm so curious, I'm sort of in the midst of it now. So I've been thinking about it a lot. But like what does your day? Look like when do you get up when do you sit down at the desk, do standard the deaths? Like gimme gimme the details. On that. I'm an early morning person. I have kids I have kids. But I'm I've always been an early morning person. And I have a lot of energy without coffee. So I know that if I can do it or like, I can right at six AM. But I will stop no matter what I think on the finer, which was my third show. I said in the room, you guys just so, you know, I'm awesome until three. And then I suck and Josh Friedman who wrote the Sarah Connor chronicles there at one point. He's like, oh my God, you weren't fucking with us. You really just all of a sudden it's just like you can. Just see it's like a deflated balloon that just kind of slowly shuts down because no matter what I do. I there's something about three to five thirty six window for me that my brains like you're just gonna suck right now. So it has to be in the morning, and that's I'm not also not an evening writer..

"China really soaks up all the attention. But a lot of people are very concerned, particularly in the business world about what happens with that deal. Well, I think it's it's an agreement that is an improvement over the existing NAFTA in every respect for Democrats. And that's why I think in the at the end of the day, I think be likely passes Republicans product support it, including me, we need to have a North American trade agreement, but for Democrats when you look at the changes in the agreement relative to the existing NAFTA agreement it's positive there are new environmental standards. They are labor standards for the first time are changes again, intellectual property protection. And other things that I think lead in the end to this inescapable reality that this is a lot better than the status quo. So. My hope is that we get this done. It probably won't get done until we also resolve the to thirty two issue, which is the aluminum steel tariffs that are still in place with regard to Canada and Mexico. We negotiate something there. My hope is that in a meeting with the president today. We can talk more about that. My my sense is that the Canadians, and the Mexicans are going to have a very difficult time ratifying the agreement themselves unless we resolve that issue and finally Senator give us just a thought or two on the budget. What do you like what did not like, well as usual budgets are blueprint? And in some respects message from the administration, and I also use Twitter budgets, you know, David. And sometimes that was frustrating as a budget director, not to have the congress that we're going to embrace every aspect of your budget. So they're good parts and bad parts as I see one good part is there is some spending restraint is necessary. But they also funded some interesting programs one is called the jobs act. It's legislation that Senator Tim Kaine introduced the last couple of Congress's bipartisan. It's very simple. It says we should allow Pell grants. To be used for short term training program, which is so needed right now for our young people who need those skills to be able to get a job, and certainly for employers who are desperate for qualified workers. So that's an that's an interesting innovative program example, what's good in their other things in there. I don't like so much the Great Lakes restoration initiative, which is help to reduce the pollution and harmful algal blooms and the species on Lake Erie, and it's been very effective public. Private partnership is practically zeroed out and ninety percent cut. That's not smart because that program's working. So you pick and choose I suppose and at the end of the day, of course, congress will write the budget that was Republican Senator Rob Portman of Ohio and coming up Josh Friedman, co chairman and CEO of canyon partners. This is Bloomberg. With.

And it looked like he snapped her neck, and I was like, whoa. What is this? A Steven Seagal movie like joking around with like, she. And then I turned to her and she's like Enfield's great.

"The Clapper lunches stars. I have the colts favored by two and a half over the Cowboys. All right. I hit this one on head three gave it a full three game me more to the Colt need to keep winning. Cowboys really there's a chance the cowboy I know you say they can jump into three seed they may not have to win another game to win this division. Eight could be enough. God you hit the lottery that division. Yeah. Well, that's the other thing. How funny was it? By the way, look the capital thing is turned into. There's two separate arguments happen at the same time in one is a little bit of rational one is actually really rational. There's the one side. That's that's operating. Like, he was really good. The last few years are to some alternate reality where it's the biggest travesty of all time that somebody's talented person does Navjot which is a slight exaggeration because we were betting against him. Religiously and that last season in inboard, he's putting a pretty empty stats. Now, he's still somewhere between like I would say twenty five and thirty five for quarterbacks. Right. There's a lot of guys like that who aren't good. But are still kind of you can at least they can steer the ship. He was definitely one of those guys. I don't know. I I know where you're going best. Is he better than Josh Johnson was probably if I remember correctly was wanna be original NFL crushes. No, no. That was Josh Freeman. Josh Friedman that Josh Josh Josh Freeman wasn't Gialle. Oh, I know Josh Rosen. Our talent. But when they still have a chance to make the playoffs, and they don't consider capital because he couldn't learn their playbook in time. But then Josh Johnson's out there in the second half and they signed him for days ago. That's when it becomes ridiculous. Yeah. Right. I wish just work came out ready and see maybe throw the ball thrown in years. Like, you know cabinet. You've seen him in a commercial. That's all you've seen out of him. But that's my point bring him in. All right. Bring him in throw some passes. Let's see the guy was in a Super Bowl five years ago in you. And instead, you you have Josh Johnson who then you're playing that's. Why didn't have him come in on thanksgiving? Right. Neck. No one wants to see him kneel on thanksgiving right against the Cowboys PR disaster. I know, but this is so annoying. Because he's he this is a blackballing, and it's outrageous. But he's also not as good as as the layoff has made it seem, but the the truth in between these two stories is that it's absolutely ridiculous that nobody's bringing him into at least four chromatic work them out. Did you see this to the cubeys? Josh Johnson EJ manual like come on. This is he's gonna the NFL's going to have to pay him like one hundred fifty million dollars where the Zedek 'cause there's no way this is not a blackballing. Yeah. I don't know. I just think the result is going to be disappointing for all capital fan hundred percent. Which is why did the big qualifier in the beginning? He was not playing very well for multiple years..

"And so then I was camped up Davis time has asked the rest of the season. Jobs or to house. So, but what I would I to to go back to your question, which is I worked in a lot of rooms, high level riders where that hunger dissipate little bit for me and and I'm sitting there with a room full of writers on. I'm just looking for that hunger right at knightfoundation and three assistance in Matt high castle. And and they stepped up in ways I had never seen this isn't stuff step up his career, and so I hired through assistance for Mana high castle. For the last so. Awesome. A room right now. That's three staff writers and one co-producer, and then. Here's something that you're going to, they're going to have heavily on you for draft but during a lot of material, or is it like bear strong graft writers or like that's a great question. I mean in a room as you all know, you know people slot in different positions. There might be a person that's great in the room at the table, but not so great on script and vice versa. You might have a super quiet person in the room that gives you ask. Yeah, just rights as you wish you wrote, you know, or even just gives you a clean, clean start to rewrite. There's even like I feel like it's totally functionally the person that's like I didn't put a lot of myself in this, but it is laid out for you. Solving is their voice lean? Yup. Good ideas. Technically like the blueprints good for production. Like things are capitalized. There's nothing more sing moment for me. Then reading from where the script takes a turn, I didn't expect it to so. So you know, in terms of these guys, they just, you know, they demonstrated that a, I trust them in the room, like walk out of the room. I can walk back in and there's going to be five new ideas there. They'll be there when I left and and ultimately they try in, you know, they take angry that the, you know, they'll kill for you in certain ways. So that's to me that's more helpful than sitting around table going, whereas launch. So then the question too. I mean, Meredith, you're, you're running a room now. What is your expectation of the writers, especially again on this thing where you have ten episodes, this is a potentially big franchise. It's certainly something that other networks I've tried to take a swing at this is on lock in Cape. Yeah, it's a very unique situation because this has been the show is that tried to do twice before? Yeah. So. Let me interrupt percents that anyone who is interested in the back story. I think it was one of the first ten episodes of this podcast was with Josh Friedman, oh, as he was just coming off. I have to listen to that. I said, yeah. Yeah, they tried it at a FOX. I don't. It was like maybe seven years ago shot a pilot last year at Hulu. They shot a pilot. They had a room, the generated seven scripts and they're about to go into production on episode two. And there was a change in leadership at Hulu and the new guy wasn't interested in making the show. So Carlton cuse took the show out to a certain different places and Netflix bought it. And so now we're making it for Netflix, and I was brought in after all of this..

"Have you heard about small fry the memoir by Lisa Brennan jobs? I born about Boko founder, Steve Jobs. It comes out on the fourth of September, and it sounds kind of uncomfortable. The New York Times article about the book and its author on Thursday, personally, I was already disinclined to read it now. I think I'm doubly so nothing against Brennan jobs. If she wants to tell her story, she should if she wants to get paid to tell that story. Great. If people want to buy it and read it, good for them. There are lots of books. I don't read lots of books about Steve Jobs. I don't read some praising him some vilifying. This'll be one still. A lot of people wanna read as much as they can about the more temperamental apples to Steve's. If you're among them, small fry is due out in a little over a week. It's another one of those things that I thought was already a thing. I'm God what wasn't though? Because I get to be excited about it all over again. Ted Krahn says, apple has given the green light for TV series based on Isaac asimov's foundation books for those not familiar the peace. In lightens saying the foundation series initially set of stories published in the nineteen forties. Then collected into book form in the fifties and followed up by long novels that asthma wrote in the eighties, focuses on the fall of a long lived galactic empire with a small group of scientists at the edge of the galaxy working to preserve knowledge and minimize the period of chaos, David as Goya, and Josh Friedman will serve as show. Runners Goya wrote on the Batman films, the dark Knight and the dark Knight rises Friedman created the television series Terminator the Sarah, Connor chronicles, which was totally awesome and totally forgotten in these seemingly end. This line of sequels reboots and reimagining that make up the morass of the Terminator properties. Not that I have an opinion. If they plan to stay true to the titles, the show runners have a huge undertaking ahead bigger even than regular TV show quoting tech crunch again, and it's print form at least foundation is far from your typical space opera focusing more on debate and political intrigue than action and taking place over hundreds of years with often interchangeable characters swapped out between stories and other words, Goya and Friedman will probably have to make some significant changes. Now, while I'm still excited and finally today, at what point will we stop being fooled into thinking that working apple one computers are rare. I mean, I know they actually are rare, but it seems like there's one up for auction every couple of months. Take the one going up for auction next month. As they go though this one sounds pretty sweet. Macrumors writes up the offering. It has Bobby Livingston executive vice president at our auction saying the apple one originates from a person who purchased it at the byte, shop the store where jobs and Wozniak originally sold the computers for six hundred sixty six dollars and sixty six cents. The owner learned basic on the computer road small programs and decided to hold onto the apple one. After it became outdated. Realizing it could one day be a piece of computing history. He then tried to sell the apple one to Wozniak in nineteen eighty two for ten thousand dollars, which went unanswered. Too bad, right?.

However, the the actual images of the corpse that is found is just -membered awful. And Mia Kirshner is the the name of the the actress who plays Elizabeth short the the real life characters based on a real real story. Interesting. Little piece of trivia. Mia Kirshner was originally intended to be feeding the lines potential actors for for screen tests. They they get these people to come in. Do readings with people that are dishing for roles and both Bryant upon as well as a writer, Josh Friedman were. So taking with me occur Schnur like that's what we want.

Been on a tour. Try to do that. I did. Yeah. And they take you actually, by the way where the field used to be where they found this court, they never figured out who did this gas leak. Ghastly dismemberment crime, but they they show. And that's one of the only thing that really sticks out knee. You remember about Brian depalma's uncelebrated black Dalia was the the shot of a very realistic looking dismembered naked mutilated desecrated corpse, and she is nude, and it is awful and there is, and she's up tractive woman actress and nothing. Nothing sexy there. Also, stars, Josh Hartnett s- scar Joe Aaron Eckhart in Hilary swank and not just a such a waste of of good cast a budget director Leonard, he he gets too caught up in his own head or something. He missed makes way too much yet way too much. Too much. Good shit. And then this it felt it felt like a new war film made in the fifties that they put color too. But in the worst possible way, it is not good plastic. For like Ben Affleck wrote and directed. Don't feel compelled to. Yeah. Picture winner. Ben Affleck. That's my number one. My my least favorite. Non nude on. I mean nude on non sexy, seeing their disgust. So as Anderson said, we will not do any also rans because so of so many this list again, which will do someday plus your listener tough, please.

"Again it's always been a pretty big part of the apple community it's always something that's gone on i've always considered it sort of like a little bit of like a cat and mouse game we never really know for sure until apple actually announces something what is reality and what's just pure fiction and speculation you get little tidbits but it you know i've never had a product announcement really ruined myself although i know many of you feel differently so i'd love to hear from both sides what do you think about rumors is this just a fun way to keep up with and follow what's going on in our community and with apple or is it something that really kind of ruins the whole experience and you'd rather just be surprised every time i think we get a nice little mix of both i don't think there's a case where we know everything going into a product announcement and they're always tends to be a few little surprises and so i like the game i've always enjoyed it it's part of the reason why i do the podcast but i again can totally see the other side of it and obviously apple trying to point that stuff out in this memo as but again i it is kind of ironic how this information came out as you know another week has gone by which means a nother announcement of a new tv series potentially coming to apple's new rumored subscription tv service this week according to deadline apple worldwide video has secured the rights to create a tv series based on isaac asimov's foundation book series so seifi fans are probably pretty excited about this one i'm getting more and more excited personally about the overall apple tv subscription service although i think we talked about last week that that service might not be here until twenty nineteen and takes a while to create all of these crate shows and this one i think is going to be no exception the project is coming from sky dance television and the series will be produced in run by david s gwalior and josh friedman sky dance television is the company that's also behind the new netflix series altered carbon which is a scifi thing i'm pretty sure.

"And what up to and last week apple was up to something because they made a deal with the estate of isaac asimov to get the rights to a tv show about based on the foundation books which basically never been adapted a bunch of people have tried and failed but this is now set up with a production company they and david goya and josh friedman or the creatives behind it and so apple i didn't make the deal with the asthma the state apple made the deal with the production company that had already made that deal but it's like a whole chain of of deals i hope they use fresh books that let them do this thing and it's fascinating because foundation i read this foundation was very important early science fiction work it's been incredibly influential but if you go back and read them and i did a couple years ago for the incomparable what you find is it's not really written for i would say a modern audience it's it's asimov was an ideas guy and he was brimming with ideas he was not really a characters guy or a plot guy like those not so you read the books and you're like it's almost as gene roddenberry drop down like the bible for star trek but no episodes and then walked away or like two episodes like a pilot pilot episodes and that was it and so i actually think this foundation thing might might be a good idea because it puts the responsibility of of kind of creating the the the details of the story the characters and the plot lines in the hands of the creative tv people using as a mas work kind of just the base instead of having a whole bunch of well loved characters everybody knows them they know what they look like they know what they're supposed to do they know exactly what the plot is sort of like a game of thrones was like up until they ran out of books and so like i think this may be better like it's still a gamble because everything is gamble but i think this might be better i don't know if you've.
