"kleenex" Discussed on KOMO
"A helicopter the size of a Kleenex box continues to astound in the Martian skies far outliving its expected lifespan but ingenuity's funeral bell may soon toll Christian Davenport has been watching it all for The Washington Post and spoke with Taylor van seiss Christian what is the flight log look like for this plucky little helicopter Well the amazing thing was it was only supposed to fly about 5 times and they were going to dedicate just about 31 days to flying a helicopter on Mars really just to see if they could do it It was going to be the first powered flight of an aircraft on another planet They weren't sure this was ever going to be able to be successful And the main mission of course isn't ingenuity the helicopter It's perseverance the rover that actually carried ingenuity over to Mars and they wanted to focus on it but it was so successful that it had this amazing flight log now of 28 flights And they kept being able to push the boundaries after every single one of these flights that they said you know what We've had 5 successful flights We're going for a whole lot more and they have and it's lasted now not just 31 days but it's gone on for more than a year Why does NASA think now is when it's going to die Well they're going into Martian winter And Mars is already a very tough environment to be in It's very very cold They had a temperature reading the other day the low is -119° Fahrenheit and they're getting these duct dust storms that kick up and they coat the solar arrays of the helicopter with this dust and it's solar powered It has 6 lithium ion batteries that rely on the solar energy And those are being coded and they're just worried that there's going to be more and more of that Earlier this month the helicopter missed a communication session with perseverance It uses perseverance as sort of a relay to get commands to and from controllers on earth and they thought oh maybe they had lost it but they were able to reestablish the connection But it's just getting toward the end of its lifespan And they also want to shift some more time and focus on to perseverance the rover which is also let's not forget doing some really amazing work up there Looking for signs of ancient life on Mars NASA when they launched this thing was really eager to play up their excitement around the little helicopter even adding fabric from the right flyer there on some of its cabling When we look now I guess if we assume that ingenuity is going to be dead before long what will its legacy be among aviation history Well I think it opens up a whole new way of exploring I mean we sent rovers and landers to Mars before but now you're not just going to send a rover to the next mission You're going to probably send another aircraft a drone like this that can work in tandem with whatever vehicle you have on the ground The scientists were saying that ingenuity when it's up in the sky it could take this imagery of the landscape and help controllers on the ground chart what's the best path for perseverance the rover to take to get to its next destination because now they have that aerial vantage point to say oh no don't go over there It's too rocky Go around to this other path That might be better and it's giving them that real-time data that they didn't have before Before we say goodbye to ingenuity be sure you head on over to Washington Post dot com and see the latest from Christian Davenport to see the legacy and accomplishments of the ingenuity helicopter Kristen thank you And that's Taylor van Sykes Your stock charts

the case for some Americans This week the Biden administration expanded the Internet affordability program a planned design to bring broadband Internet to more American households Will Reinhardt is a senior fellow at the center for growth and opportunity It seems like there is a sizable portion of the United States that isn't connected to the Internet but it's kind of hard to tell exactly the reason why Data from Pew Research last year found about 8% of U.S. households aren't online To me there's like there's a couple of layers going on here There is this layer of connectivity the actual infrastructure itself But Reinhardt says for about two thirds of the offline crowd The major reason why people aren't connected to the Internet is because they say they don't find it particularly relevant in their lives That is very different than not having not having a connection or not being able to connect to the Internet With tech trends I'm Michelle Franz and ABC News Thanks to

It's not centered around like you know like your eyes are so pretty or whatever it's like you're strong confidence self shared and this is another example of avatar doing very intelligent job way.

It's usually focused on like the male action. Heroes specially like a lot of the animals. Watch it when i was younger. Females didn't get nearly as much play as the female avatar so kudos to the writing team for writing up a scene like this at first glance. So you'll be like of course. The girls go to the spa. But if you watch and and really take these characters and what it means to each of them. I think that they just did a great job. And also like sometimes girls just wanna go to the spa and that is not shameful that like females to exhibit feminine. Feel pretty. there's nothing shameful about that.

Hand formula one. He sat a hand off road. And he's telling us stories about all of it. Alexander rossi is on the smug tire podcast. It's from indiana alexander. Rossi is in the house or virtually. What's up man not much. Thanks for having me your welcome. Thank you for dive bombing in zach. Let's get him back. Because i don't wanna look at me. The audience wants to see alex and yet there is with a beautifully soft zoom background approp- appropriate for working from home. Welcome thank you. I'm i'm happy to be here. Happy that in this day and age we can still at face to face contact. Bertish again which i would have bought zoom stock Year ago a year ago the were skype was verb skype. Nothing anymore but that was like skype was the was kleenex a year ago. Where do they go. I mean has anyone dropped the ball harder than skype zooms product. Really that much better though. I think i think we'll we're not we don't use zoom we're using switzer cast but zoom. I think zack zoom the first one to do the the multiple boxes. Zillow allow you to do group chatting. Can you do that on skype Skype followed zoom and skype is far worse. It's quite bad okay. I guess that's that's be it was all about all about the group chat presume I just want to start with like what the hell is it. Like to be a racing driver in the last twelve months like is it. Weird is it. It's less cool than it was fourteen months ago. Just it's it's amazing. How much the fans. I mean to any sport but yeah to racing. You know there's because we don't really see them in the middle of race because you're in a car and it's not a stadium type sport so much of the pre event build up. An energy is all fan related. So that goes away. You're kind of like on the grid about to do this race when it's kind of like cool. This is weird. I feel your practice or something's a practice race. Shouldn't something like that. Because you're right. Show the driver introductions and the fireworks and the parade lap and all that sort of thing and when that goes away. You're just getting in your car and driving around in circles to people have they done. Did they have they tried to do. I mean look. Obviously everyone's doing doing their best to make make it work and keep keep people employed and keep people entertained and you know from drivers to crew people to whoever tv people and whatnot. Have they tried to do anything. That was really a good faith effort to take something that was formerly in person and and make it virtual where you're just like. Oh god this does not work. Yeah kind of and like it's a good segue like. I'm so thankful that we're able to get a season in the first place right. That was always a big concern. When this when this all kind of kicked off on march like are we going to raise his racing exists and all this stuff so it was a huge effort from the promoters in the series teams. All kind of finagle. Their way and make make a season happen but yeah the series tried a lot of different virtual kind of fan meet and greets in sponsor appearances. And it was. It was a necessary evil. Sure but i about the fact that. I just cannot wait for the day that you were back to in person attendance. Just because it's so it's so strange because sometimes like you have these these meet and greets but like people don't really wanna talk to you so you're just sitting there trying to engage audience. That doesn't have anything to ask. And you're like well. I have this for launch. Today i grew up in california. And it's just it's very strange. You lose that human to human interaction but nonetheless we're all adapting. It's all good. It's a it's a very much a first world problem and on unhappy to to start the season here next weekend.

"Not a vacation. E need some sun Steve, now, one of our teammates said when he was on a plane recently, the plane was jammed. Going to one of these places jam. Couple of deceit sense, But you could argue that the plane's air cleaner quote unquote than other areas with the way they cycle through the air. That would tell you that story sided fly one slips. Yeah, Remember that So I get on the plane. This is this is when the whole plane cleaning thing was really hitting a crescendo is like they are on top of this. They're spraying and I walk in. I sit down, probably about 15 throw cozy myself up to the window, which is where I like tea. And there, you know, the little receptacle in front of your person seat in front of you. The little sometimes it smashed. Sometimes it's filled with used Kleenex. I'm like what in the world. What do you do that Because you know, in touch that no. I had to get the another field backs and bother the flight attendant like in the critical part where you're loading passengers. Can you please take charity? Where's the Where's the disinfectant team? How did they catch? How do you know? How do you know they were used? Cause they were like, all crumpled up, OK, because it was a mesh one on the airliner was fun. Is it just me or is that happened?

Excel spreadsheet on what I have in my possessions in any room of our house, right? And that's how bad a day that's how crazy I am right now because of this panda, so we get away and it was a mask wearing, like all you know, hand washing constantly. Is that really a vacation? For me. It wasn't now I'm scared to go to France in November. Okay? I'm going to France in November. I don't think so, like can change between now and then. I don't know if we'll have herd immunity then, but I mean, you'll have a lot more people inoculated. It's crazy out there bills that go. I want to go to France. Well, though, I say whether or not you should. I'm just saying that I would like to think we'll have more people vaccinated and have a better rate of vaccinations. At that point, then we do right now. You think the fresher are on top of this so that I could actually go. That's a great quote. That's a whole different. I don't know. It's just it's a long flights.

Ride Shares Road Ahead
"Hi everyone welcome to gadget lab. I'm lauren good. I'm a senior writer at wired join remotely by my co co-host word senior editor michael glory. Hey mike aloha. How're you doing today. Talk doing great. Thanks good and we're also joined by wired transportation writer ian marshall joining us. Dc arjan. Thanks so much for coming gadget lab. Thanks for having me. It's it's so good to to be with co workers for a moment. It's good to see you on the postage stamp. It's good to see you on zoom today. We're talking about how we got around this year. I mean not that we were able to get around this year because that would have been nice but how we actually moved from place to place and how ride sharing services like uber and lift an even scooter. Shares were affected by both the pandemic and legislation just nine or ten months ago. It was nearly impossible to imagine modern transportation without uber but when the pandemic hit it devastated demand for ride shares and meanwhile in california legislation like assembly bill five and the recently passed prop twenty two are likely to have big repercussions for gig workers. You know the people who actually dry for these companies and the laws will probably set a precedent for how the companies that rely on these workers. Do business arjan you. Cover these companies closely. How are they fairing. They are not doing great a probably not surprisingly so goober and lift notoriously. I debuted on the stock market last spring. It was like one of the big. I tech. Ipo's of like the modern sort of unicorn era and since then their stock prices have kind of struggled and they've struggled to actually make money. There are still lots of people pouring money into these companies. But they're still not really turning a profit and they're certainly not turning a profit. This year rides are still down in most places across the world in the us. At one point they were down seventy five eighty percent. We've heard from more. Recently the rights are kind of coming back in some places in some cities. But i think like the corona virus itself. They're been waves of people going out and about and things shutting down again. So they're they're not doing great. It's been a hard year for everyone and that includes uber and left right before the pandemic they made some changes to their businesses. Both of them shed parts of their business that they didn't want to deal with anymore and they made some acquisitions and moved into some new areas. how is how is that decision. Making played out is a great question. I think it sort of depends on Which things are talking about. So uber notoriously pulled out of some places around the world. They pulled out of asia sel part of their business to other companies over there And that's kind of part of them consolidating rearing up for this wall street. Ipo and then the other big thing that both uber and lyft moved into you in the last few years are scooters and bikes and sharing those things instead of just car rides and that has also proven to be a difficult business. It's actually doing a little bit better. During the pandemic it turns out that people are getting super into biking these days. It feels a lot safer to some people. We'll see whether those trends will keep up during the winter. I think it's going to be really hard for people to get around in places where it gets really cold and snowy unpleasant to be on a bike or scooter but those businesses in general are doing pretty well. That said uber sold its scooter and bike unit over the summer so i think those those two are complicated businesses. something else. That uber has gotten into lift signal. That it might get into. Soon is a food delivery. So uber eats is now one of the big food delivery businesses in the country. It's doing crazy business right now. Doing really really well but it also is not making money. It's kind of a trend here. There are a lot of people using these services there become verbs. people uber. like that. use kleenex It's a brand name. That's becomes something that we all use every day. But they still don't make money
Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr.: What you need to know
"Mike tyson versus roy jones rules concluding on further rules. And the fact that twelve ounce gloves will be used instead of ten. He stated the california state. Athletic commission approved the fight. They will have a ref. They're the referee overseeing the fight under are all normal. Fight professional rules with the exception but a few exceptions. That's the gloves. Like putting an extra kleenex between two trucks crashing. You know so. Basically they're talking about. The gloves is the only exception that these rules are under the state athletic commission and that there will be ref there from the state athletic commission as well. So i don't know a lot of confusion a lot back and forth and it's been fight weeks so i kinda wanna give meeting. Maybe his credit and say maybe he's right. You know. I know i know. He came out on one of these earliest shows that we did earlier this week and he said you know all this is just to drum up interest. I think it was when When the presale broke you know when when they initially Released a press. Release that mike. Tyson roy jones set the pay per view presell Broke the pay per views of presell record. I think that's what many say you know that this might be fake news Strategic put out there to build interest in sight. I don't know if that's true based off the attention that we get when we do. These shows on tyson. I think that tyson just brings them out definitely. Because he's a legend man. He's a legend. Any when i when you save them out. We're not just talking about boxing. Fans he brings out to the the the actresses actors the the entertainers. Everybody comes out. I don't care what walks alive. You know who. Mike tyson. Mike tyson is in the ring.

Hard they got mad. Google banner ads on everything now. Obviously i only searched predominantly boxing. So maybe the i'm targeted you know. Because this technology has gotten to the level where they follow keywords and key stroke. So maybe it's it's it's specific to me because i'm already a boxing fan but i think that they're spending money on advertisement many doing a thing man.

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.

"Listen. Intellectual property is very complicated. And, uh, there's a lot of that goes into it, but you have to enforce your trademark for it to be valid over the years. If people use your trademark so much, it becomes generic. Then it's generic and there's nothing you could do about it. I'm not sure Kleenex is that way. But Kleenex used to be aggressive about enforcing it. Pass me a Kleenex, and it's not a clean exits a tissue and they want to make sure you don't say Kleenex and the other one Q tips would be another one there. Cotton swabs, They're not Q Tips. Unless they're Q tips, and there are so many of the things that we do. And we say And they don't necessarily become generic, but they can. So Cindy has her air conditioning out in the apartment. It's been out for a month. Did you have airconditioning when you moved in, Cindy? Yes, I did. I've been here almost four years and all the 17th is when it went out. Okay? Are you the only one that is experiencing this problem? Or is it Ah, unit that feeds the building. Oh, no. There's many other units in this complex that are experiencing that When I first reported it, they said, Well, you're number 17 in line, and I told them this is an emergency. It's 98 degrees outside and it's in my apartment. And they said This is not an emergency yet when you call their emergency line if it's over 80 degrees outside. It is an emergency, so they're contradicting themselves. I don't even know what an emergency is. When it comes to air conditioning. I don't know. I know Arizona has some emergencies. But do we actually have Ah declared emergency. If people don't have air conditioning, I don't know. I don't know. I don't. Well, I know under your I know, under your homeowner's or runners policy. There's a loss of use Klaus where there is loss of use here property due to flooding or maybe extreme heat that would apply but my deductibles 500, so I'm not going to stay in a hotel. For a lengthy period of time. Just a note really quick ants was her phone screwing up for you, too, or just us was Okay. Good. All right. I just want to make sure so. So here's what I think that Cindy, you know if you had airconditioning air conditioning, not working, even if it's not an emergency, You know, even if it is not an emergency, it's still something they need to fix. I mean, it's you know, you had airconditioning you rented with air conditioning, and they should fix the air conditioning. So I don't think we have to split hairs to say whether it's an emergency or not. It's a violation of the lease. I would say That's what I would call it now. Whether or not it's strong enough to enforce habitability standards. I don't think it is. I do not think I might be wrong. But I do not think air conditioning is on the list of habitability standards, no matter how hot it is. The heat is on habitability standards. So is infestation of insects and stuff and past But I don't believe airconditioning is on the list. So what you need to do what and when you said number 17 in line that leads me to believe each unit has its own air conditioner. Is that what it is that that's correct and they have a company that comes out once, possibly twice a week to put the units and I've left messages where you need to service your tenants. You need to call other companies on Daz right now. They? I finally got someone to come out last Friday and they got the unit working. I left for an hour and I came back and it was blowing hot air. I called back to take a look at it and they said, Oh, your compressor is out. No. Hey, They told me they would talk to the main maintenance person on Tuesday of this week. I have a maintenance person, and she said No. They never told me so. The communication around here is pretty well what they're doing, Cindy. What they're doing is just trying to put you off. Okay. How old is this apartment unit? Or is it condos? What is individual owners? A central owner? Explain it to me. No, it's an apartment building its apartment. It's not condominiums. I know it's more than it's got to be more than 18 years old because I moved to Colorado and 02. And originally I had moved to these unit and I just moved back here four years ago, okay? What about in general in general, is it Is it dilapidated is a terrible in general or okay. So had pretty good service here. It's just with the air conditioning being out a month in that, you know, dead of. When is your lease up? Well, my least wass up last babe, but I got so irritated. I put an ad out there for someone to take over my lease and I'm actually moving out on the 26. I When are you moving out? Sit on the ball here, huh? When are you moving out? I'm moving out on September 26. Well, so this is a moot point at this point you you found someone? When would your least be up? Normally You say you found someone to take it over? No, I'm I least was due to expire May 23rd of next year, but that that week all this 18th. I put an ad for someone to take over my What is is the landlord going to allow you to do that? Normally, That's not allowed. Are they letting you do that called that's called doubly. What I'm doing is I'm having somebody actually take over the remainder of my league. I understand that it's called assignment. It's called assignment and and and, but some leases don't allow us. I'm it apparently yours. Does it Does you good? You did a good thing. Okay, So here's the deal. You're moving out. So why did you call? I'm calling to see if if they could reimburse me because I period monthly West to have everything in working condition and I gets it. It's called. It's called Offsetting. It's called Offsetting. The question is, can you offset For a lack of air conditioning. It's an interesting question. Now. You can't like, get all your money because you did live there. But what you're saying is the value went down. Mark. What do you, Dan? Everybody? What do you guys think? I think that it's not a bad idea to try it, but you can't do it by withholding it. Because that's the wrong way to do it, and and you would be violating the lease. So so that one of the big problems Is going to be valuing it. How would you value it? Well, I would say I would deduct the I would pay half the rent now. I don't know that man..

First we get to our texts when we can give us a call 800 8590957 So I know that among the emails you got yesterday. This one really jumped out at you. Somebody e mailed you that a friend of Ah Jo Jo was the emailer Joe, A friend of Joe's has a Frigidaire. It's an over and under washer dryer that was purchased in 1998 when operating the dryer. The drum rotates, But there is no heat the manual states that the problem is likely a blown house fuse. This guy pulled a couple of panels did not see the fuses and wonder if you could hold just kind of sort out this whole situation for him. Well, the terminology is wrong House. Hughes means fuse box. Right, That's where you go your fuse box. If it's a house use and on the electric dryers, it takes 220 volts toe operate the dryer and the cause Heat. So if one fuses blown, you're not going to get any heat. You're going to get the drum turning, Okay, but there's no heat you need to. And these fuses. They're speaking ofthe Ark. Artreach fuses. They look like a big, long shotgun shell. And they're in a container which the little handle you pull him out. And they don't have toe be bad look bad, but they can be bad. So the local hardware store conjecture fuse and see if it's good or bad, but I'm in. It made a mistake. I did. I made a mistake and Ah, I talked about these fuses just as I spoken to you. But there's another fuse and it's not a house fuse. It's a fuse. It's a A little fuse. That's on the back of Many and most dryers. It's located on the duck work that comes out of the back of the dryer, which means you've gotta pull it dry out to get to the fuse. And it's a one time blow fuse. In other words, it does not reset itself. And it looks like a little plastic teardrop just a couple inches long. Maybe three inches, four inches long. He's got to wire stood now to check. If it's that fuse you could do. One of two things you can call a service technician might charge $150. To change the fuse. Or you can check it yourself by simply taken the two wires off the fuse. Put them together. Now if you get heat and the drum turns and you get heat Now, you know that that fuse is defective. It blown because there's usually a problem with the dryer vent line, and that's why the fuse was installed. I raised so much cane years ago. That the manufacturers finally came along and put this fuse in to prevent house fires are reportedly prevent a house fire, but that fuse Is not expensive. He can be replaced by you. And if you bypass it and the dryer heats up, do not run the dryer in that condition. Replace that fuse. It's there for a reason. Donald Joe, We've got Carol on the line. She is calling from Holly, and she has a question regarding a refrigerator. Good morning, Carol. Thanks for calling. Good morning, Joe. Thanks for taking my call. You're welcome in I have a really nice French door Maytag Bridge. Mom. Some time ago, the lights on the control panel on front started blinking. And there are five lights. It was reset filter the door alarm, the water and the two temps that were given. They just started blinking and blinking. But Fridge held the cold and the freezer worked fine. So I ignored it. And about three weeks after I noticed that it didn't matter if I unplugged it and plugged it back in the I could not. I tried resetting pushing all the buttons. Nothing would reset that. So I googled things, and it suggested that this was a common problem. And there were two control panels and you should change one of the two and then it started stopped cooling, freezer and refrigerator so I just kind of moved everything to my other fridge, and it's been sitting in the basement with all doors open for about a month. Help. Well, number one is the fact that it's been unplugged for a month, okay? I might suggest that you try one thing first, and that's to take some warm vinegar. Just plain white vinegar heated up in the microwave. Just get it a lukewarm Take a perfectly clean cloth. Make sure perfectly clean. Dampen the cloth. I don't want to soaking And I want you to wash off the touch pad control on the review on the refrigerator. Oh, Now. After you wash to take a piece of Kleenex, not a piece of paper towel. But a piece of Kleenex tissue paper and wipe it dry. Now plug it in. And you might be surprised that it starts to function the way it's supposed to. Oh, my goodness. Now we've said this on the radio for years. And electronic genius. Showed me this years and years ago. The body contains electricity. And your fingers have oil on the end of them. So when you touch that pet You quote that pad with the oil from your body, and the current from your body goes in there and interferes with the operation of the touch pad or the motherboard.

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.

"kleenex" Discussed on Lessons Learned in Marketing
"Well that brings up a great question because a lot of names and we talked about a little bit with that the bias of familiarity but a lot of names will mean nothing until there is a product that people can associate with it. How do you I guess balance that with you know trying to find something distinctive but getting people to appreciate that the name might mean nothing to you now but hopefully will imbue that meaning into it? I'm I think abstract names are fascinating. And they're brilliant examples of them everything ranging from Kodak and Kleenex to Verizon and and and others Google potential on that too so these names are an opportunity for a brand to make. It mean what ever they want? Now the problem with that is Is Really two parts. The first is is that it means nothing. So that means you're marketing has to work a little bit harder to breathe life into it so you need to tell people what you are and repeat that message a lot more frequently for that name to seed and have meaning but once you cross that hurdle. It's like the Kleenex example. It becomes known as the category. The and so there's that balancing act of do you want someone to have a quick understanding of what you are Like big ass fans or net flicks or can you be a little bit more creative and create your own name like variety or Hulu and and and let it and then you'll breathe life into it so that's part of your strategy question the An invented word is my suggestion. Unless you're naming. A pharmaceutical is to focus on phonetic spelling if you think of variety center singular or these kind of names they based on Greek and Latin roots and they actually take a lot more marketing to make the the ideas Stech For whatever reason you can hear a drug name a thousand times and still not remember it So whereas Hulu it has or they have those phonetic qualities that That make them far more memorable. That's why Kodak even though the the brand is is largely gone since its bankruptcy Still has such high resonant. Assist a strong phonetic word with hard consonants. And that that. Just stick in your mind Well sadly we're almost at the time. Jeremy I really thank you for great to connect with you and I thank you for the book. Because it's super smart and actionable any lessons any final lessons for people that you've learned with your work through naming my my final lesson on this is how fun with it. I think a name is the most important decision decision you'll ever make and you should enjoy the process and so my hope at least if you use my math apology another one is that you take this as important business decision..

"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
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
"kleenex" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Boys at five six to seven I joined Mike Norton me for odds couple the full a week one slate lots were college games taught Fuhrman in Vegas in about twenty minutes so don't miss that week one do's and don'ts in the NFL some good things last night mostly from the defense imac is mac a lot I don't wonder Floyd had a strong game he should have games like that with all the attention paid to Khalil Mack a Kleenex I thought rope on was very good Eddie Goldman again defense is good I mean look you're going to get the ten points out you roll with that every time against their Rogers every time a fake the the run play the fake the rivers in the end we call that the cross country route the one where he goes deep down fielding crosses the field the cross country route is the one that they had the big play on and there was a poor place very strict about a minute and thirty seconds they kind of were stunned with the big play that got him they could recover they gave up seven points after that there were stingy that's what the bears do yeah can she defense yes they help them rushing that held them per care you know per yards per carry it was exceptional give all the credit while listener conditions a little bit off. air conditioning is a little bit off I'd suggest the image of the lads one a few extra gases into practice get ready for Denver many got to go to that they're Johnson rolling meadows on ESPN one thousand with Carmen in your co good afternoon John. Hey guys I'm not going to be like your other callers you know we gotta get this we got to do that. what I am going to say if the Packers did their job defensively by making sure that Mitch stayed in the pocket they gave them a half a heavy pass rush up the middle and for the offense of line took hold in order to keep trying to keep me off right and that's what makes you've gotta learn you know do your progressions but do it quicker get get locked in your head go when you get rid of the ball before the defense can get in there get asked you it's that simple and Johnny thanks it's part of the progression and he's got to make that we were all hoping for he's going to get better. reading recognizing knowing where to go in the first option is not there. it's one read when he's got L. Robinson or Taylor Gabriel one on one on the sideline and it's got to make a factual to throw he can do it right but. any quarterback in the league can do that the great ones pick you apart and how they survey the field how they they they they re reacts to what the defense is and isn't doing this offense is also playing without a viable tight end. not ideal I guess you're right not playing with a viable tied in period and that's another one of those city scape areas that he did have if Trey Burke was healthy enough to play but for one reason or another trade burden is not healthy to play. not good we'll see what mysterious injury bestows upon him this week this was trim on Williams a defensive back for the Packers after game talk about their game plan against the bears in the office we wanted to make..
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
