Google is facing the biggest antitrust case in a generation
"The Justice Department announced that they filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, accusing them of monopolizing the online search and search advertising markets. It's no secret that Google is a major player in these areas. The Justice Department is alleging that about 80% of American search queries go through Google. Also, it's chrome browser controls about 70% of the global online browser market. 85% of smartphones globally run its Android operating system. This is just a first step in what could be a lengthy and messy court battle for moron with the DOJ is alleging, and what it could mean for consumers will speak to Kyle Daily Technology editor at Axios, this pretty indisputable stuff, right? I mean, when you think of search you think of Google. I mean, there is myself being there's some other alternatives, but you know they're pretty. Finley used. The DOJ points out in the suit that Google controls about 88% of what it called General search, which is, you know In the open Web, searching Google maps searching for general information That's not like, Hey, I'm on Amazon and I want to search this closed platform specific product. And the challenge with bringing antitrust cases against the big tech companies. Is that a lot of them like Google, now free to use there isn't really clear, clean, observable consumer harm where it's like prices went up. Because of your monopoly. That's bad. We're gonna crack down on you. You know there are no prices for the consumer, so they have to sort of do two things here. One is define a market that's being monopolized which can be kind of challenging itself. So you know what you first have to do is establish. Okay, Here's something where Google Clearly has the monopoly and that is, as you say, online search and then be causing harm. So what DOJ is saying the harm is is really to competition, or sort of would be competition that Google has used its position and that it uses agreements that it makes With Apple with wireless carriers with Samsung and other companies that actually makes phones at one android toe lock it in as the default search engine on your smarts on are sort of core your carrier around your Web browser, and then it uses that to achieve this market dominance and shore up its market dominance, And then that sort of this self fueling thing, where the more ubiquitous Google is, the better it's product become. Is because it can feed the engine with more data, and it just sort of breaks away from the competition is definitely there. You know, you think of things like Kleenex or Xerox. You know those air the brand names or whatever the things that they kind of represent, now, you don't Here. Somebody said, Hey, go being that people say go Google that I mean, it's a product that we know and everybody uses all the time. What is Google say in response to all of this Because I was just reading some of it. You know, they said, Well, our product is just so good that That's why people like to use it and they have the other options and they just don't Yeah. I mean, that's why this is such an interesting case. And that's why, you know, we kind of expected continue seeing antitrust cases possibly brought against some of these big tech companies, particularly Facebook, but also Amazon, possibly Apple that there's a high likelihood that regardless of which party is in power We're going to keep seeing this. So they say exactly what you said. In response. They say they put in use the word monopoly, but they sort of copped to monopolize the market. But they say that's just because we're that good. You know, the other options are out there. You are free as a consumer to choose them. You're free to change the default on your phones so that its searching being more Google or doctor go. You do the same thing on your browser. People stick with us. This is Google talking because We just have the best search engine and we're not deliberately taking any action to prevent competition. And they say he's the same arrangements that they make with Apple to be the default in safari. They say. You know, the other guys are totally free to do that. And if they had a better product, and maybe they would have more more. These agreements like we have

My minor oreos right now so. Comfortable, well, let's get into your story and here in ten minutes or less. Tell us how long you drank cal long it was a problem and why you decided to stop you know. My story begins at four and a half years old. My father was killed in a drunk on your car crash. and I felt different. A mealy filled different because I was gonNA have a dad I. everybody else had two cars in a garage two incomes their DADS were there soccer coaches at our liberty coaches. And so from four and a half to two nine years old when my mom remarried I definitely feel different. And my alcoholism showed up before you even took a drink. A Trish, I I I, I did three things very very well. I got great grades I was a superb athlete. And I was also bowling and I use violence as my first way to medicate my. My mom remarried when I was nine. She married an old World War Two. Vet, a guy who was there on d day, the great thing about this man was that he taught me at a Thai Thai. Shave my face, open doors or women. Really old school ways I think lost in a generation or two, and I'm grateful to them and most mostly unbreathable that he was seventeen years a sobriety. And is exactly what my mother needed and in many ways exactly what I needed, misstep misstep. but what happened was for me was puberty. Right around twelve or thirteen right his cougars kicking and I was entering my freshman year of high school. I found a solution alcohol, marijuana and cocaine I also wanted to show off in front of the girls, and so between the peer pressure of school, looking at pretty girls, and the availability of drugs and alcohol I was well on my way to find my new solution to my inner pane. Did that for a few years might pattern. High School was that I would drink on Friday. Nights drove on Saturday mornings I would again drink on Saturday nights throat on Sunday mornings in the insanity of that going on for four years straight still not hitting square in the is. when all my friends were. Being talked to about school counselor colleges to go the Trish. They were going to cal and Stanford and Michigan Texas Nice Schools in my career counselors, talking about trade schools eventually ended up at a trade school. Arizona State University. and as many no, let's Party School and my alcoholism. Just blew up from there I began doing ecstasy lots of cocaine. In I got out into the real world. And light, actually the day I graduated I got my first you is. Six months later I got arrested for assault. In a bar. A few months later. I got arrested twice in twenty four hours in Mardi Gras. And here's the sicknesses disease stretches I was. There Bourbon Street my first night and went up to speak Irish combination. This is new rules what? What can I do and he says don't piston the streets and don't fight and streets. and. So Trish I'm GonNa have you guess what two things I got arrested for? Did you see while you were fighting with somebody or I'm not that multitalented. So the happened I and less than eighteen hours later, I was led out got back on the streets. got drunk and high again it could not find a bathroom, so I decided in the streets and got caught one more time and so. I have a nice arrest record there in the lovely speakeasy of Louisiana got to be the most eventful twenty four hours I've ever heard of by the way, but I don't WanNa. Take, I. Don't want to interrupt too much. Go ahead, but no, it's crazy. I was real resentful for a lot of years that hey you guys took away my Mardi Gras. You guys, you guys room. I buzz. You know for years. Even sober years in a one old-timer pulls me aside goes. Let me tell you how. How God works God put you in those paddy wagons to save your ass. Because what would happen if he would've stayed out there, you would have been stabbed. Shot would hooked up with some girl and probably got S. t you don't know what would happen, but both those times. He puts you in a paddy wagon because he did for you. What you do yourself and it hit me right between the eyes young. He was right. He's absolutely right. Then I went back to the San. Diego Start Working and I had some resentments. I was promised to a high paying job at a college. I. Was only making nineteen thousand dollars a year and I was working overnight, said the TV station. I don't know about you, Trish when I would get out of work at three o'clock am. There's certain people that are out at three am right.

How TikTok Killed Bloomberg's Twitter News Play
"So you know the big fan of brand brand matters you should always be focusing on your brand whether it is a personal brand or a business brand doesn't matter brand matters and it's GonNa matter even more in a world voice us when we're going to start asking our Alexis and Google homes. What we want we can ask for a product category? If we don't ask for your specific brand Yoga GonNa lose Amazon on on. Google will win because they will determine what you mean when you say you want tissues as opposed to Kleenex now. That's the brand conversation but on the product side. I think there's a really interesting example of how if you don't get your product ride brand doesn't really even matter and I think that example is with Tik Tok which which is this hot new APP that everybody knows about will Bloomberg the news network. They had a thing called. Take Talk To. It was their play not to talk to take talk also. It was their play for twitter. It was a mobile first twitter. I news service and it was called. Tick Tock T. I C. T. O. C. I think So the spelling was slightly different but the pronunciation was obviously the same and they had that live. I guess probably a year or two maybe before. Talk folks certainly before tick tock hit mainstream. But what's happened is take talk has become so popular end so mainstream effectively. Also well known in the mainstream that Google gave up on their branding of tick tock because basically people recognize the tick Tock SOCIAL DANCING APP. That thirteen year olds L. D. jumping around playing with before they recognize the Bloomberg tick talk news APP now. The two winning competing spaces at all a thirteen year. Old Dancing Video Into these this is probably not gonNA spend a lot of time following the Bloomberg News but the fact is it became such a battle for attention. They gave up on the talk branding and they renamed it too quick. Take I think it is and so to me what that shows. It's possibly showing. It's two things much shows the value of the brand in that Tick Tock. The music APP did a much better job of establishing brand or it could also tell us that no matter what you'll brandies your product has to resonate. I and I think that's what it tells tells us the tick tock social media dancing APP. They had a product that resonated and it resonated so loudly with their audience. Those third in your old dance enthusiast list that it's really become much more than that. It's become an aging up type of social network. Just like we've seen with all the social networks over the years so yes brand matters. But if you've got a crappy product when not even a crappy product but if you'll product isn't strong enough then all the branding in the world is probably not gonNA save you if if somebody comes out with a better product and a decent

These Are The WORST Games of 2019
"The worst games of twenty nine thousand nine all right and definitive. This is definitive and we played any of them. You and I have played one of them. Okay Yeah I wonder if I've played any of them I know I haven't I bet which means I did. Good Yeah you chose wisely. That's true we put up an article on this This week the article was very specifically the worst reviewed games and it was based on the metacritic scores. Because the truth is allow. These games idea doesn't even review because if it's a game that no one's ever heard of it's not doing anyone much services say hey here's a game you've never heard of. It's really bad. That's a good way to not very useful information information. But there's some high profile games from high profile Delo developers and publishers like squaring and left alive. Whoa you remember that one? No and it's Square. Kleenex live weight in review. We did that one. Yeah okay so we're only talking about the ones. We reviewed. Okay well there might be one gender Eh. Critics gems Yeah this is actually our lowest score the year three point eight. Wow that's as low as we got got. Yeah that is a rare the score for us. Yeah let's have. Some people were interesting. Because it used the artist that used to work a metal gear so the art was sort of reminiscent of Medicare but Kulik Kulik pinky like kind of style. Yeah Okay in our view. Call The creek creaky and frustratingly broken mix of stealth action. That's just what you want. is frustrating frustrating stealth any game. That's the worst combination possible so three point eight is as low as got. It's been a long time since we've given out like a one. I looked. Yeah I think two thousand and five what was it. It was like Elf bowling but it was ever boy it was elbowing one and two one. One carts yeah. That's really when you what about like bowling was free as like a flash game that you played free. But you'd rather pay for it. You WanNa play on your Nintendo DS. At least a two. If there's two games in their oneplus exact maybe it was one zero or two point five. We were in a meeting where a pair told us there was zero given even out and we said what was it for immediately. Should the name of a hockey game that we've never heard of so. I don't know if it's true or not I want to say I don't know if I want to say it was a an Olympic game it was it was a hockey. We're all right. It's both of them. They re released that year is hockey game and the review is zero and it says when you make a new game will write a new review. Yeah it was just. It was last year's game with new box art which I think happened with Viva this year actually on switch. But that's in their the twenty legacy addition addition for that was a switch version and I Jeans Review. I think it was Simon reviewed. It said this honestly no genuine reason. I could give you to purchase fever. twenty-nine switch if you already own fee for nineteen on switch which we gave it a four and even nineteen was matic. Simon should have given it zero that wouldn't really reserves Zeros for like utterly broken. I can't barely low the game. I'm not confident. Giving his era wouldn't break something on energy. I if I were I would make it my goal to make a game that I would review and give zero two. So how would you so that you can get the Guinness World Record for quickest failure. Well I think the point it would be a lot of copies because it's bad that because we get attention women get attention because it got zero. I'm picking up with SAM. swigging down what. He's saying. Novelty like Munib on twitter. Actually broken game generally ignore Games we get us to review it the slap slap on like marvel on the title thanks Star Wars. And you just can't let expensive license and zero game. Sounds like a really bad journey an evil Virginia's that Evil billionaire genius. And that's exactly what it's been my time doing or if it came from a studio well-known studio that we typically review games from either they can throw all their money away and with crash bandicoot literally crash like it just crash crash. That's the only way to get zero. A Contra game came out this year a new Contra Game Longtime Damon forced me to play we did play it and play. We haven't talked since looks like we're talking to each other right now but I'm actually talking to Tina Justin only Samsung even in the room. It's weird record. Santana San Spread separately. So who do we play. Cj I think to the three players top down Contra game and to be Fair Contra has had top down segments before entre three the alien wars. Yeah but it's just it wasn't didn't feel like a contra game but it was like Okay Schutte top down thing gave it a four. That's not okay okay. It would be a sick Sam but but I didn't review it giving it a sick I play enough to review withhold judgment. It was pretty bad and it's just like honor consciousness in a very sad state of affairs over Konami right now so it's been a long running beloved game series. It hadn't seen a new entering a long time Hammond Hoof. That was not what people want. Can you imagine being the artists digital the metal gear art and then being like I'm out of here and getting your game review as a three point eight or do you think contras a good candidate for getting unlike the God of war style boot like take it very seriously. Lemur cinematography version just like lean into the seriousness of the character and like introspection inspection of his past bill and bringing all sorts bill. That's a good point. It's already a knockoff of Terminator Alien. Yeah so it's like like just maybe those franchises should make a game but I know alien have some pretty good speaking of all that this is a this is a tangent retake a strange corner I I just think new term bombed at the box office new Rambo bombed New Alien bombed last year or two years ago. I just wonder if like that. That's sort of the eighties. Installed your wells. Drying up or nine hundred installs franchises for very cheap and make a game that would get scored as zero journey. The silliest Yes yes exactly yet they did blade runner sadly also later honor which I thought was a good movie credible movie I loved that movie. Okay moving we on bad games worst games. WWE K twenty which has been pending? It's been bad for a long time to have a fever and w beyond there that are like that rejected by their audience is in that bad is really really crappy. Because as we're like the heights of their franchises either Games Assira could give that a four point three really really botched. WWe This year Mitchell. It's a buggy mess though buggy mess but his game play also feels notably worse than previous years. Remember this stretchy people running around doing so. I mean if you look at it as a comedy game. It's a nine awesome. See that's the thing if I had it for you that game aside from and not knowing anything about WB. I think it gets and pleasure out of it because it was just so stupid. Able there's vibrating through the ropes simulator. You Guys Know Avalanche Studios. What do they make you mad? Max and just 'cause yeah yeah they put out a game. This year called generation zero. No one knows that I know nobody knows that but it they put out a game and we gave it a four okay. I know it's crazy. You would think Max okay which is really good and just goes but they put out this generation zero game who've pretty bad and then there's Wolfenstein Wolfenstein Wolfenstein cyber pilots we didn't that's the VR game. We actually didn't review it but it has a fifty on metacritic in there. Much of the criticism is directed at It's a very short story. underwhelming comment combat in general lack of content. So it doesn't make everybody universally puke. nope is that would be a really cool. VR game another goal of mine all those people that play VR. And they're like Nah doesn't make me motion sick. I'll make in my next game. You want the badge for that. A terrible kind of a bad year for Wolfenstein youngblood didn't make much of an impact either. I didn't play it but I wanted to play it. I still want to play. That's that's impact. Can you believe the latest leisure suit. Larry the reviewed very well. It has a fifty if lead is Larry hasn't been good or popular appealed forever and had thirty years of games. Like how do you reconcile that. Who is making it an exchanging license and buying it and making more games? I just I don't get how it happened. I think it's the original guy critters. Don't make Larry Yeah. Speaking of Terminator there was a new terminator game called Terminator Resistance. We gave it a four. Don't remember that that might not just came out wrestling okay. What I was going to share leaser shoot suit? I can't say that leisure suit. Larry how did you just do that. And a lot of the original game had very body content and and so a to ensure that no kids played it. You had to answer trivia question when you booted the game up about that. Only adults would know what was the name of Presidents Reagan. President Reagan's Blah Blah Blah. Pretty good. I'm pretty good or like what were those jokes and Shrek that you didn't get when you were a kid that would be like. Yeah well you know whose voice of Donkey and Shrek where you can watch Shrek. Shrek on the gameboy advance. That's that was top of mind can watch it. Yeah Movie Gameboy. Advance video is a thing and it was striking another movie. That was two movies. He's on one cartridge. Maybe it was worse than trek. Yeah it was clearly. Yeah you're blowing my mind right now. Blew my mind that cart yes we we absolutely solution bag. Gb and it's not a game it's the movie is on only that but there was episodes of Nick toons shows and episodes of PLO. Come on and they were like thirty bucks for two episodes. They played on the kids. Like just 'cause there's laboratories on the size of a postage stamp uh-huh uh-huh isn't that crazy. That's crazy I never knew that. Yeah Super Interesting Oh crackdown three. That might be the most one of the most high-profile a high profile games on this list. We do it overall for but we gave the multiplayer component. Oh No I'm sorry. Overall got five the multiplayer four okay for my GM. Crackdown game. No crackdown was so good to not so good Shinmun three. That finally came out the one of the worst games this year. Five point nine now so just on the cop stats cusp of okay. Yeah Mediocre I think for five point nine nine runs down mediocre

that were a little bit unusual the first was October to mid February and then the second one was late February to mid may everybody should get the shot that is six months and older and less recommended by their position okay so two doesn't do is not a good candidate so he has a chronic illness something like that yes yeah and and their their position will be able to let them know if that is something that they need to have or not now the overall vaccine effectiveness for last year was forty seven percent compared to thirty eight percent the year before and the thing about the actually even if it isn't a one hundred percent match which is almost it's going to be impossible for to be anywhere near that because the strains mutate and they make the vaccine based on the previous years strains and but they can mutate during that time so even if it's not let's say even if it's a thirty or forty percent match it still provides some protection from getting the flu and if someone gets the flu it can really shorten the duration and how severe it is always a match last year the person must last year was the overall effectiveness was forty seven percent okay tell me about this the symptoms of what I mean when I was growing up if you have if you threw up they said no that's flu the node and die I'm it wasn't but what are the simple how do I know if I've got it well fever chills sore throat body aches headaches are severe tiredness and fatigue or one of the tell tale signs along with this body aches runny or stuffy nose and flu is spread by sneezing and those droplets that end up anywhere and everywhere so it's important to sneeze in our elbows knees and I Kleenex and of course wash our hands all the time soap and water is more effective they enhance on attached to him sanitizer but hand sanitizers all there is then use the hand sanitizer are there any figures on the impact of flu on school and work attendance your ceiling on that you know there can be but there hasn't been I in the law in the last several years that big of an impact but that is something that we can definitely look at it if that if that occurs because we monitor as school absenteeism and so will know if something is going on in the schools so again the the advice on how to prevent getting the flu the get the shot and then but again the bass to prevent shin is to get the flu shot and then to wash those hands and not quickly saying the ABC or Happy Birthday twice and get in the fingernails between the the fingers just really allowed the rep well and rinse and I do your best not to grab onto the handle of the bathroom door grab a paper towel because those germs are everywhere and if someone is sick to stay home well the most likely if someone has the flu they will be too fatigued and feel horrible to get out of there all right yes in recent years of supermarkets and drugstores have been giving the shots has it helped much in getting more people like you that immunized and and and how are they safe yes that's the flu shots are very safe and there's no live virus in flu shot so with the type of symptoms that someone might have if they have a reaction is going to be me build a swelling at the site or redness and of course you know arm might hurt it's important to really relax and it's a muscular shocked and then the move the arm around afterwards but it is it is totally safe for anyone that is recommended to get that six months and older hi my wife and I got is the other day in the shot itself was barely nothing but the next day I hit my shoulder yes although I don't know yeah it didn't hurt but you just a little bit as have to remember to move it around and it is important for pregnant women to also get the flu shot really because it does provide some protection to to the baby because they can't get one until they're six months old what happened what I believe you got the flu is there anything in that you can take over the counter or prior by prescription it'll help out and and with the symptoms well there are are over the counter at remedies that will minimize some of the symptoms your ibuprofen Tylenol type medications but if someone can go to their medical provider they can get an anti viral especially if they get there in the first three days and that anti viral suggest Tama flew when there are a couple other available now can really shorten the duration and the
How Stitch Fix's CEO Built a $2 Billion Company
"The idea of such facts was one that I also tested and explored and the way I did that was what was your idea. The idea was does how can you I mean a couple of different theses so one thesis overall was just like more and more dollars are moving to ecommerce stores like this is the method I found was super compelling for my consulting was dollars are leaving stores going. ECOMMERCE as dollars gradually leave every one of those dollars hugely hurtful to a store or is it loses it because all of a sudden you can't pay rent. You can't pay our people and so you know like ten percent. Fifteen percent decline in your store volume can kill a store and ten or fifteen percent. It doesn't seem like all that much and so there's this kind of like death spiral that I kind of anticipated would happen with stores and Netflix and blockbuster is kind of like the best example I fit like even if thirty percent of the people in your town or using Netflix and seventy percent of the people in your town are going to blockbuster like that blockbuster probably can't make money on the wall. The death spiral component of is that one blockbuster closes and now the seventy percent of the people who lived in that town have to decide. Do I drive ten miles to another another blockbuster try. This netflixing thirty for the minority of people in my town are are doing now is probably a big conversation at that time because Netflix was killing blockbusters clusters. It's fascinating so I expected that would happen in retail apparel stores and then on top of that. I felt like there was this massive de personalization Asian of I'm retail that was happening. which when you're buying toilet paper iphone chargers or diapers is fine you don't need that to be personal but that totally ignore your this category of apparel which is like deeply personal and deeply nuanced and our product categories that are super emotional like you're not kind of emotionally emotionally buying a box of Kleenex but you are very emotionally buying that blazer and so I felt like all of the emotion nuance had been stripped out in in ECOMMERCE and that that wasn't the right approach yeah so the idea was how can you deliver a really actually personal experience in apparel and use data and technology to make that scalable in to make that better but why I mean? Why wouldn't you just you know offer a AH bunch of options and just let people kind of scroll through. I guess the the beauty of online shopping's that time was you know just infinite choices right you could just scroll through and find the thing like yeah and you know. I think for some customers that they want to shot but like I'm five foot two and so there's a whole world of apparel. That's like literally not relevant to me just simply because they're not. GonNa fit because I'm the wrong height and there are things that you know if you're living in California you can gone homepage and they're trying to sell you. Kashmir mittens and it's like that's totally irrelevant to me. So if you peel back like what stitch fix does it's like yes like if if you could instead of going to a mall all day or instead of spending you know your entire evening with thirty browser tabs open to try to compare and contrast different genes you. WanNa buy if you could get a box sent to you that had two pairs of jeans or even better one pair of jeans and they fit you great that an infinitely better experience than the other alternatives. That's out there because you have this idea about like I. Business where I guess you would send a subscription box to of close to people but how did you the hedge even begin to think of a about how it's going to work. So the way it worked was basically I would have friends of friends. Fill out a survey and you would let me know what size and style what things as you like what brands you like experimenting this point or had you already formed a company named Issa. This is in two thousand ten experimenting as a student essentially writing to other friends and students in Boston and that was the benefit of being in Boston. Choose like I didn't really have that many friends in Boston and so it was easy to meet strangers and so one of the things that I needed to prove to myself was like it wasn't going to be scalable for you to tell me Okay on these are the seven things I want and then for me to go buy yeah those things like the math doesn't work for that to be scalable and so you need to have a set of inventory you're working from and so I was buying inventory at retail from bootexe in Boston and I would keep track of like do they have a fourteen day return policy or thirty day return policy and then I would use. I was making any money doing this but I would use that as my inventory Tori so that when somebody would felt their profile I would then put together a box of things that were relevant based on what they shared in their profile and then they would try things is on and then if they wanted to buy things they write me a personal check and I would sell it to them and if they didn't want to keep it and if I ultimately didn't sell it within my fourteen day turn window I'd go and return to the boutique by the way. How did you buy all that stuff? I had a credit card of the six thousand dollar limit on it and you would buy them and then sell them limited markup. No I was just telling the price I wasn't making any money. I just wanted to have sees it would work yeah well and how many friends were in on us at the beginning. I do not. I don't know maybe twenty twenty. What did you find from this group of Twenty people. What did you discover. I discovered that the the you actually could learn a lot from somebody. I think there's just as thesis around like. Do I have to like be with you in person to understand your style and who you are you that the survey and like I felt pretty confident like you could do survey there was a number of items thing I started out with ten items and the reality was like people weren't GonNa try on ten items. It's a lot it's a lot of work and you're just looking at something in your now. There's no way I'm going to like that and you. Just don't try everything on and ten was too many What else did I learn I think I learned the brand thing of I didn't you know people were actually surprisingly very open to buying from brands that they weren't aware of and in fact found some value you in finding brands that they wouldn't normally have found on their own. So when did you pull the trigger and say all right. Let's let's form a business. Let's I was getting. Llc Go and let's like make this real it was we didn't actually the company wasn't formed until February of two thousand ah eleven but I kind of became all in on this and not other concepts. I would say like late two thousand ten so when you when you really really kind of like got this going and at that time it was not just you write it wasn't you're not the only one involved the company. I edit co-founder at the time she was the wife of my friend from college and so how are you you growing this business and also being a student. I scheduled my classes that they were a lot. They're all lumped together. In the middle either in the middle of the end of the weekend did something with my scheduling that enabled me to be able to spend almost a week in California and so in January and again in February I spent almost a full week out here and what I would do out here was meet with Angel Investors and on Valentine's Day of two thousand eleven. We got a term sheet from Steve Anderson. Instead Anderson is an investor that you met through other people and he gave you how much money they give you. He gave a term sheet for half million dollars and then said now go talk to other angel investors and try to find others to join the round and then probably talked to thirty other people who said no ultimately even though he had hardy said Yeah Yeah I mean in that in the sort of winter and spring of two thousand eleven when you you took the research that you gathered from these twenty people in you went and to meet with investors and the Silicon Valley did you just you show them this data and you should see. I tried this on twenty friends and this is what we found right. I mean you can understand you could understand. I guess why they might have been skeptical. Oh totally yeah no I would come in and I'd say like you know here's the Beta that I did with like twenty people and here's how I think the business model shape up and like I would would bring a box in and I'd say like here's an example of a box with like laminated cards and you know the box was like all that nice looking like it's not like I had spent any money on branding or anything and at that seed stage like it was a hundred percent justin idea and explain how you explained what the business model was at the time because I just to clarify stitch fix today you sign up you pay twenty bucks a month. You get five items sent to you every month depending on your subscription and if you buy them all oh you get a discount and if you return them all that's fine it's free but it's twenty dollars a month essentially for a personal stylist right yeah and it's twenty dollars to be very clear. I don't have to do it on a monthly basis quarterly. You can do it all a car like you. Don't you don't need to commit any timeframe but it is every time you get a fixed. You pay twenty dollars styling fee. The twenty dollars ours is credit towards anything that you choose to buy but the heart of it was really this like we're going to buy inventory. We're going to get to know you become experts on you. Clients and we're GONNA become experts on the products and then we're going to generate really great recommendations at the intersection of those two things but buying inventory. That's that's that's a big investment right. It looks like what we did and what we did that and what we do now is like we're like a department store by the yeah exactly and so when I would go and raise a half million ars from Steve Anderson like half of that was literally going to buy dresses close and venture investors hated that and not only would they've hated that but you you if in your business model you said we're GONNA personalized as we're GONNA have human beings involved in picking stuff. I mean venture people. They don't like to pay people like they like companies that that are like user generated content or they like helix free. They don't like to pay for human resources right. Yeah people said like this is going to be an inventory. Tori nightmare like and it was good feedback because ultimately inventory like we are very good at managing inventory and we have to be in our model and and you know people saw that and people were skeptical that you'd be able to execute over that period of time when you're trying to raise money and all everybody essentially except for Steve said no so was that demoralizing disheartening. We just like yeah. Whatever I'm you know water off. A duck's back knows both you just you had to be able to have reason for confidence in what you were doing regardless of what venture investors thought at the moment and so like you did have to have the skin about it and you did have to let it be water ducts back but at the same time while we were doing like nobody else really doing it for like a very long time and when you're doing something that nobody else is doing you are either the smartest or the stupidest person in the room
Google’s Nest doorbell camera plan gets a package-detection feature
"To people okay now it's a story that was embargoed until eight minutes ago so yeah this is brand new and exclusive that we are getting rich it happens to be with gold gold and a new ring yes so this it's a new feature so Google has a feature on there okay let's start over here yeah I'm just playing around it's not a ring okay so Google is at war with rain yeah this is the latest in the war against rang but Google also has their own video doorbell it's called the nest hello it is not as popular as the ring but they would like to change that especially people start getting nest cams in Google assistance in their homes next thing you know they say well maybe I should do the nest hello video doorbell instead of rings video doorbell there the market leader but Google is adding a new feature today called package detection and this means that when you get a package delivered to your front door the nest video doorbell recognizes that package snaps a picture of it and send it your phone also as an alert to say Hey this just got delivered your front door and now you know you can leave work early you can kind of cut out for lunch whatever you want to do to go grab that package or to confirm that it got delivered all right so you don't have to wait until someone actually steals the package well that's the that's the thing here I mean they're trying to say this can cut down on package staffed which I guess you can but if you're aware of it being there what can you do yeah or if you're aware of it being delivered which of course a ring doorbell will do I don't see the huge advantage here yeah I don't either I think that I think it I think we'll Google's trying to do is show that they're flexing their artificial intelligence mites because nest the way they're doing this is with artificial intelligence so they are looking at this package in identifying the fact that this is a package verses a person whereas with rain when someone walks up to your front door it's just straight up motion detection that alert you that someone's near your front door if you have that feature yeah and you could see who that person is yeah so again I don't I don't see the big deal here I love it when these major companies make incremental advances that are I come on really all right like you have phones that are all of sudden or a little bit faster the camera is a little bit better and here's an extra thousand dollars you have to spend hi and the other thing is getting away in overcoming the and name nest for example whenever I think of let's say thermostats we read it all thermostats in my house immediately the only thing came mine was next yeah and they even Google is that it is going to have a hard time it's like Kleenex almost I say yeah engage a nest has that kind of at iconic identification Google has had real trouble with the nest brand because they bought ness that was not something that they hatched it was a guy who started who originally designed the original iPod that came up with the nest thermostat and so they bought that company and they just have have had a really tough time integrating that company into Google because here's the thing you've got Google which is synonymous with non privacy when people think Google they do nothing privacy and then you have next which is where they all about their about protecting your home and hoping that you know your home be a smart home so you've got these two sort of warring factors going together but but Google also wants you to know that they own nest because it gives you more you know give you it you think that there it's a better company because it's got the Google marks so this is a really tricky situation I find that fascinating because why as many other companies they just don't keep they they keep the brand name they bought a name that is recognize why would you move away from that kind of name like when Disney bought ABC it's a BC Comcast owns NBC it's N. B. C. and then you are holding companies are they don't Kentucky fried chicken I mean yum brands I think is the owner they wouldn't dream of removing the KFC name so I understand we're Google was going with this well they're just having a tough time because they they're rebranding Nast okay so these things that everyone had their homes called the Google home hub this was like a little you know it's a Google assistant kind of thing with the screen now the sun is called the Google Nast arts like the nest home hobbits it's just they keep changing the names on people because they're trying to figure out what works and what resonates with the consumer but again they have this I'm sure inside Google they have these conversations were they say we want to promote the fact that this is Google but we also don't want to promote the fact that you know people don't think of Google as most private companies same problem their Facebook had with their video chat devices called the portal and they kind of dropped the Facebook name from that because people don't think of Facebook as a private companies you're gonna include this camera in your house from Facebook and he didn't want that you would think that Google exists to at this point drop that whole issue in by a medium sized country I mean a chest why
NASA astronaut caught in custody battle
"Astronaut divorce a same but not that it matters of their same sex but that but evidently they they met in the military ms Mrs warden a former airforce intelligence officer ms McCain is a astronaut who's done missions up on the on the international space station she's on the short list list to be NASA's first woman on the moon well maybe not astronaut clean spent two hundred and four days in space orbiting the earth more than three thousand times but it's what she allegedly access what's there may have her in trouble back on earth I was shocked and appalled that kind of see the audacity of her to think that she can get away with that the accusation comes from a bitter divorce and custody battle estranged wife summer warden saying McLean used a computer on the international space station to access her bank account the pair has been fighting over warden six year old son in a statement on Twitter McLean says there's unequivocally no truth to these claims we've been going through a painful personal separation that's now unfortunately in the mean yeah her attorney told The New York Times the astronaut did nothing wrong it was only checking the family's finances like she had in the past NASA's inspector general is now investigating there's no question that a U. S. court so the bottom bottom line I know what you're all saying wait a minute they have faster wifi this peace station that I do well so that what's your carrier know OB so apparently so that the deal is they are you know communicate directly with internet satellites so they have a direct I'm in connection with their with the lower th orbit internet satellite to seven fairly early these to have like a slower than dial up system M. astronaut so I forgot which one which of the Kelly brothers is not the a whole anti gun a whole the the one who's got flown more he talked about and said well the emails okay we can't do anything else it was slower than dialup but apparently now it is much better so so the deal is with with this the word is that they do have her using her ex wife's log in and password for a banking account so she's not logging in under her credentials she is from the space station she was walking in on her ex's ID and password the Czech banking records to check of transactions and money and and all that and they have her by keystroke from doing it from the international space station so I'm gonna I'm gonna go ahead and say that that the that short list to be the first woman landing on the moon just get a little shorter rap war explain well I was enjoying that one away well you heard about the eggs the but the Kleenex when she was what she was just checking on bills a no normal banking or you're just doing what she's always on just monitors all of the money coming in all that no no no no you're avoiding the issue the issue is not whether she could do that for her own account she was doing it on her ex wife's account she retained the username and password and so you know meant many of us are learning that lesson when you're divorced crazy people you want to change your password

"kleenex" Discussed on The Brain Candy Podcast
"That's not my sense is anyway, as you read about the man size Kleenex can controversy. I know. Like an actual clinics. Bigger is supposed to be for men. We'll it's called man size. I don't know four men. But I think it's been around a while and people got mad, and so they're changing it now, two extra large. Yeah. Okay. Tell me your thoughts. I. Man-sized is like kind of fits into that same thing. Like, if you were to look up the definition of masculinity in the dictionary, and it would say like tough, strong, all those words that don't fit with how a lot of men feel like say something man sized. There are a lot of men who are my size or smaller or like something like, I don't I don't like it. You know? Yeah. It's saying that like, you know. Yeah. I get it. I don't care like if somebody wants to call that. Did it wouldn't have bothered me. But but then we like, but where would you draw the line? So if if we could say that's a man size clinics is a man size table is large coffee. A man sized coffee is a bigger couch. Amand size couch is a like where do you? Yeah. I think it was relies twinkies. Right. But like if I had seen it, I would probably just chuckled and be like stupid trying to advertise to that's. Here's the deal if they charge more for it. And the men are buying it and fine because we've been doing that ship for years I've been paying more for razors drying, lean axe pink. Yeah. So go ahead of more blue tax, tax, whatever it is. Yeah. Somebody tweeted it was like, hey Kleenex. My daughter wants to know like why you're pretending like these for men like I don't get it. And they said, we're changing it. We're gonna call them extra large. It was just probably a a non wise marketing move. But like it doesn't get me too worked up..
Spain to have world's longest life expectancy by 2040
"Behaviors, so if the good old fashioned Mediterranean diet, but also lower smoking race is one of the things that hip stem ahead of Japan who which has a slightly higher smoking rate, particularly in men, and that's how Spain is managed to leap up the table and his life expectancy is still rising in most countries. Whether or not there high middle income countries well globally. They're expecting a four point four year increase in life expectancy over the next decade in a bit. However, it is a mixed picture, and you get a lot of rich countries making a huge amount of progress places like Japan, Singapore Spain and Switzerland or we're going to have life. Expectancies over eighty five years on average according to this forecast, but you get other countries Central African Republic's involve way samayoa sofa all under sixty five years. So what you're seeing is that while there has been progress being made that huge gap in between the poorest, and the richest countries is in closing. And this report also has a warning that what is attempted to do is work out the best case scenario and the worst case scenario is for life expectancy in the coming decades. And it says that in its worst case scenario if things go quite badly, wrong them half of countries around the world Karachi their life expectancy falling. So don't think that living into your middle eight hundred hundred Dundee accordia, thanks for that may to Spain. Now, James let me ask you a question. Do you say me grain or migraine? I say migraine I have no idea if I'm right on well, I checked with the BBC pronunciation unit and first of all the sites said me grain. But then it also says that migraine is also. An attested variant. So we find with either you'll be pleased to know. Now last week we look to the humble and sometimes not so humble headache. And heard that the everyday tension type headache can usually be treated with ibuprofen or paracetamol and for a real boost with a Cup of coffee at the same time because the caffeine helps but a headache can also be one of the main symptoms of migraine and collasped days, and that's what we're focusing on this week. Our reporter Katie Tackett sukey has been in search of new treatments. This is the Tim S device. It's a single pounds. Testimonial. Magnetic stimulation device. Andrei direct to have had eight research at the headache center. Guys instant Thomas's hospital in London shows me a new portable device for migraine sufferers on the patient house boarded like this. And the pulses when you get a migraine nerves attend on new rooms in nerves fire, and that's why you feel pain this small magnetic pulse to the outer part of the brain from the TMS device changes the activity of those neurones and which uses the pain over time. It found recused the frequency of their tax and reduce the severity of the attacks. Say this device patients, take it home. Yes. So this technique has been in in the Kleenex for over thirty years. However, it involves a big machine. So this is the first time we have a portable device patients can take at home, and they can treat themselves to actually prevent their attacks. I'ma says they're seeing good results with three months. Eve's patients reporter, welcome reduction in the number and severity of attacks. And as someone who suffers for migraine, she knows all too. Well, how disabling they can be woke up with a migraine probably because let's. From your coming here. And what do they feel like for you describe the experience the migraine attack begins before the actual headache? I experienced what we called Pomona, Tori, symtoms yawning need to have more watering intake food intake, and so on then the henna comes in which is a disabling part on the attack and payroll. Zero. You just want to lie down just give in the dark Brown, quiet and just try to sleep more the attack. After the headaches stops you still have this hungover left from the attack and how long does an attack typically last four year. If I don't read it successful. They can go up to three days. Typical actually directional for migraine attack, ripping things out and dispose full Coakley. He has no respite from his chronic migraine rabid serious condition. It's effects about ten percent of people. He's had it for seventeen years. It doesn't come doesn't go. It's always there. No treatment has ever been successful. So we started proves a welcome distraction. Worst. I would say I well. Oh, sort of cuddled up on the sofa clutching my head, basically. And just wishing it would go away. What kind of treatment? Have you had four? Medication of all sorts and descriptions, both talks is one of them. That was tried. I've had various things stuck in the neck and pumped with things other inclined stand, but nothing that any of the treatment of had made any impact on the continuous nature the treatments Paul tried and not specifically for migraine. We've never had for the communist newer logical cause of disability on the planet. We've never had of specific preventive till now, she's a really big deal.

Whereas a series of them that go to a major American Corporation to the respondents to a major American columnist and to a number of movie stars regarding Disney princesses, first of all the major American Corporation is. This is really remarkable the Kleenex company. I had been unaware of this. I guess I had missed out because I don't know. Maybe I had a sheltered upbringing.

Well, no man's highs Kleenex anymore for anybody. Kimberly Clark, the parent company of Kleenex said it received a consistent increase of complaints about the branding for man-size Kleenex. Kleenex man-sized. Tissues have been on shelves for the past sixty years. Had a statement from the company over that time. The brand has always been characterized by a much larger tissue size, which is both soft and strong. The company said in their statement, Kimberly Clark in no way, suggests that being both soft and strong isn't exclusively masculine trait, nor do we believe that the man size branding suggests are endorses gender inequality. However, they are dropping man size Kleenex is they are not going to be called Kleenex extra-large. Do I believe that this is a tragedy? No, do I think that this is a raid on our cultural patrimony. No. But is it silly and stupid, and pathetic and strange to think of a company wasting serious money to respond. How many complaints you think they received on the issue of man-size Kleenex, how many complaints is it take to get you to change something like that? That's been there for sixty years. I mean, so now you just say Kleenex extra large. I guess it's more descriptive..
Kleenex to rebrand 'mansize' tissues after gender complaints
"Kleenex is rebranding its man size. Tissues after getting complaints. The name was sexist Kleenex maker Kimberly Clark says it received a consistent increase of complaints and gender concern. So the product will now be called Kleenex extra large packages for the tissues described them confidently strong and comfortably soft Kimberly Clark tells Britain's Daily Telegraph it in no way.

What they're going to be called Kleenex extra large packages for tissues described as confidently strong and comfortably soft. Now, they've come out.
