I'm just gonna read in a book and be able to do But you have always been in that entertainment field so dogo for the most part always had different ideas of how i wanted to make money. I knew that the ultimate goal was not have a boss is realize that almost immediately. I've like i went through so many jobs. Just just to just to be stepping stones to get to where i am now. I every type of retail job every type of restaurant job every type of landscaping job. Just like a means to continue supporting my passions.

That's that's actually when it stopped because it was just like. Hey babe. Can you make something epic and i can take photos of it no okay. Smoking is a metaphor for the entire relationship. Don i to all the prep all the cooking style at garnish gets done. I'd be like joe. See i'm joking. I'm having fun here. i'm just joking it was. She's a why don't you feel the need to delete it. Though i know so it turned into kind of we stopped doing those food inserted doing more like home decor staff and lifestyle images and interior design stuff like that so less and less food and then it just became more. I think she's an interior designer. So it just kinda didn't have a place anymore. Okay that's all so the accounting get deleted. It just transitioned into something else. Something okay all right. that's fair. yeah that's cool. Yeah no the reason. I was asking us. Because i've often i like food I like go ahead go ahead. I'm saying that like the long lost project that hasn't happened yet. I would love to do something in food. But i don't necessarily wanna make the food. I just wanted to eat the food. I would watch that. It's all i wanna do. Yeah twenty get the food about the food. I would love to be like the co host of a show like that You know okay.

Reminding me of that dude commented. What if the shirt you're gonna die in is already hanging in your closet all like don't like that You could look at it two ways. That's the thing i remember.

Soon and converse conversation comes up of Like would you wanna know if you had a finite number of days can change. The is is a similar area. Yeah you can look at it so positive or negative. So would you wanna know. Would you want to know when you're going to die now. What if it was really soon. I'm good with it soon. That i'll find out san no but it's not so much about finding out it's about how you would what you would do in the days leading up to it now now. I'm good what if there was something you could do to change that reality. Yeah that gets messy man. Not that easy all right. We're hitting nerve to have been unacceptable. Don't you dare hard questions during that. I don't wanna grab don't want to deflect okay. I is escalating as good. You go first the worst. Or i'll start with the best I would say the best would be consistency persistence. Something like that. Keep hammering the Just keep coming back like you said. Kaya ken god damn are we done with him yet. Sat guy still there the him like that part of it. I feel like i can get punched a lot. I'm not talking about physically punchline. Keep coming back. So we're almost almost two are suppose. I'm not gonna do that of flipping that into the worst thing but it can be unhealthy as well. It could be to submit yourself to put the punishment of that could be a nba. And i know. I'm not gonna do the same thing. But it's a copy sufficient due to a and be thing. Give the the worst.

"That was driving his side by side and i d. I wasn't even going fast. Was going forty and then i brought it down because we got into some some woods and it brought down twenty kilometers an hour. I think the suspension was too high on the front took a little bit of a right turn when up on two wheels. And the one thing they tell you the one thing when you're driving. Ut year side by side or anything like that is keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle all times. The roll cage will protect you. Sound like idea is a great idea. Highly recommended i did not do that. The ground was coming kind of slowly because it tipped it tipped rather slow. It didn't happen fast. So i i i had time to process like oh i'm tipping. It's happening on the ground coming faster So i stuck my hand out and the frame came down on top of my fingers on and as pull out fast and i think if it was concrete it'd be gone gone gone. Yeah friend of mine. His son stuck his arm out lost his arm. Could lord just gone so. I took my gloves off. I was bending them like seems fine. Put some ice on them. They were bruised up and my wife is. You should probably go to the hospital as i. yeah. I think i'm good. Maybe an hour after that the pain was about twelve ten. Like i'm going to go and they did a quick x ray. I'm like yeah you you broke all of them. All of them in half. Would you say that too. I assume mrs the case but maybe not. Is this your worst injury filming video. Yeah yeah the fire department had to come in. Cut my ring off. It couldn't get it off is probably hurt more than actually breaking them. They had to wrap a shoelace around the ring finger to compress the swelling so that they could tuck the shoelace under the ring and then pulling the shoelace would would effectively remove the ring with the shoelace. As it uncalled and it was awful got the knuckle anita just like yeah. It's not going to go. I was. I was telling you that dude i've been telling you. Can i. please get some tylenol three Yeah something just got. Some garden clippers in jaws of life. That think right on one hundred percent now no so. I can bend this way in these. I can bend to their. That's it but flexibility is pretty good. But i have zero strength like i could not open a door with this. Couldn't flip a lighter. I can't hold a pen. I have zero almost like motor skills with his hand right now so. I don't think i've ever put. I don't think i've ever as far as making is concerned. Been in that in a scenario of anywhere similar type of. Oh wait a sec. I wasn't filming something. Gopro is just rolling. Because i was. I always role when i'm writing obt kind of watching this video here and it seemed like maybe it was. Yeah video now. I was just fly. Gopro footage of of this run i was doing. I was trying to see how fast i could do it in. I'm sure if it was epic. I probably would have come back there and made something out of it but if i'm ever on a quad or a or a cd a really cool place or anything like that. I'm usually rolling some kind of action..

"He's the guy fought my whole life to become just tom delonge. Maybe that's the difference between making something in consuming something because you you just in his case Described something similar to what we've been talking about. Maybe it's like when you make something you immediately start thinking about the next thing you wanna make. You don't really. In many cases you might not like the thing you made as much as other people do. They may like it more than you do. And so because of that. Part of the part of that process is like putting things down or wishing that you could because the motivation to create the next thing requires you to not be fully be fulfilled with the last thing. Yup kind of have to push the last thing away in order to create space for the next thing even if it's on a specific channel that reminds me of you know in casey stop vlogging. He used the analogy of swinging through a jungle on vines. And he's like and to get to the next thing. I i have to let go of the vine i was swinging on to get the next one or i won't get further ahead right to where i wanna go to kind of reminds me of that. Just letting go of the thing. Being a requirement as a content consumer you're kind of experiencing the thing From a different perspective you're experiencing the thing in a more First of all faster you spend less time with it because the finished product is often far less time consuming than the creation of the thing. Yup and you're bringing your appreciation to it and you're assuming that the person who made it has the same level of appreciation for it and so when you're clamoring crowd to play the thing you can't understand what the problem Didn't you love it as much as i did. Yeah and maybe the answer is no. Yeah maybe you never did love it as much as if you were completely disconnected from it and you could have experienced it minus the process of making something burying something in making something else. I don't know i'm just wondering what it is about. This trend that like a lot of people that i know that make things in published things are often their biggest critics. The least likely to go rewatch something they did. I i always talk. I don't..

He there was a second channel wasn't his but he. Yeah yeah yeah it was called and when it comes with certain numbers like on this anise and he did it. Yeah yeah it was. It was for year. That idea the concept was. I think that's how psychologically said that the very beginning the leading channels starting channels should be more of a not a huge thing. Willie do just miss typed the thing and he he because he the. Yeah so yeah. We'll take it easy. Be careful there. It would be nice. I think it could be really healthy. A landscape for experimentation if there were if in his mostly our own faults been like. We are the strictest prison guards. I often say that talking about the prisoner from before. Jesus why are we. Why don't we do this to myself. Wait are they strangle ourselves all the time. Tell everybody i worked my whole life to to get away from working for a boss and you're the worst myself and i've ever had a amen. Yeah and so. I think that's a big thing that keeps keeps us from like dis- treating the whole thing a little bit more loosely and certainly in early days. It was by nature that way because this foundation wasn't so robust And so it was more attractive or reasonable to approach things in that fashion. And so there's a there's a whole light untangling effect that it was probably not exclusive to us. It's just anything that you do for a certain amount you get people who have Do up businesses and then they sell it and then another one like dat feels. Yeah sell it by ashfield exciting.

"Dudes and it. Just it's that's very much my style to a t the i can see it. Yeah maybe it takes time to get here like your original. Peter mackinnon channel. You had to go through all that to get here as possible in the you know what the funny thing is right now. I'm enjoying this more. Well i can tell. How can you tell look at this whole mood over here. I can smell it and taste it. Yeah that's a good description. It's a home okay here when you look at this and then you look at my main instagram. Okay let's go there. let's go there. Well let's do this right now. None oh this is it. We are not this is This looks like a youtuber. Radio this is this is what are you on. I mean it's it's It's got some of the same mood but it doesn't have that rustic. They're not completely separate. Obviously there's gonna be some crossover and instagram's weird place. Because i can tell that you put a lot of energy into laos. What's going on on instagram. i lot. Yeah so it's not really a fair comparison. But i i was actually going more based on the way that you set it up the way you were describing the new project as i was also looking at it this guys into this. Yeah it's guys night into that other thing interesting. 'cause i experienced the same thing where it's hard to be into all the different things to the same degree. It comes and goes right there. There are times where. I'm tired of this for a few weeks and i don't post anything or and i don't really have any activity that i come back to it like. Oh yeah this is sick. And it's the same with photography and video. You know sometimes depending on the project come here and get a bunch of cool shots of the truck. And i'm like oh i'm pumped up on photography again. And how can i work in into the grid. And how can it make sure it works and i have like three or four different test accounts that i post everything to first and then we do what we call grid tests and i screen shot those sons my friends to see what they think flows the best for the next ten photos moving forward and i liked you know this better than that and and then i'm really into it but it's just kind of an ebb and flow. I don't know what struck me about. It was the fact that your first project on the internet in the world is your name and then your second project is in alias. The project which may reflect more personally is interesting. Ask things transpire interesting. Isn't it that like you might think he could go. In the opposite direction. There was early days of social media. People were very careful about their identity and the there was a lot of anonymity which is the thing that made will smirking at turned on. I mean i remember when face reveal videos. Were a thing because everyone was shooting videos. But not showing. Sergio forgot about that. And it's interesting that your progression took you to a slightly more anonymous place in name and in even revealing who was responsible initially and yet it would have been even more anonymous. had the original user names been available. Go ahead like. I wouldn't have gone with pete's pirate life. I probably would have just had something to do with pirate life. That was easier to not attached to somebody. You would have preferred for be even more anonymous. Yeah you see that china escape. If i'm learning a lot about myself in this podcast..

"I created because i'm into kind of like everyday carry stuff pocket knives those types of things coffee whiskey that this basically lifestyle that you're looking at on the screen and it just didn't fit that peter mackinnon brand so i was like this needs to go somewhere in a lot of my friends. Call me pirate. Pete so i just started trying to figure out what username worked pizza pirate. Life worked started posting. No one knew it was me at the start and that was kinda fun. It was just some random account posting everyday carry stuff with pirate things. People were on board. Did you see willy is on board. No no known like the style. No no no no no. There's a moment did i miss like an inflexion. All this guy is. Sometimes he takes it too far. What is reaction but you always pick it up. Are we gonna clip that. It was a key component in here. When you said it was originally anonymous is that turned him right on. I wanna make sure nobody missed okay. We'll clip that because he's weird content habits as well. I think we all do to certain knowledge you so we started started posting. No one knew me. I got pretty far before people started putting together the hand tattoos really kind of ruined it cows out of the bag then partnered with this dude in the states and we started selling products and now that modeling pozzo there all right got that dial that would profile on the shoulder as well him on the shoulder. It's weird picture. My version would be md cans so we got you know. Hand forged axes all kinds of cool accessories. Let me ask you something. And this is what the channel was going to be about. Let me ask you something. Which one is peter mackinnon. Which one's more peter mccann. No no no. This is a winner. Take all no one or the other is more represented of of what this a lot of like my close friends who follow this account when they see it. They're like that's just human like dirt bikes pocket knives and trucks and snowmobiles and quads and coffee and whiskey and moody lighting in the style of photography is what you've always been into and shooting in the fall and in the arctic with these random.

"Well i mean you could put it to a certain occupation but also just a certain way of being to a certain extent. It's like It's utility is representative of utility as opposed to other we have pretty superficial trucks. You know that. Now that i think about it hours if you get a raptor then you're kinda playing both sides. yeah guy. Some feathers wearing some feathers. I don't see many like four minutes. I put you don't see any like site supers rolling up in a in a raptor. You better be careful out there on those trails all those feathers. You're just wait. I'll bring it over here. I mean it's it's definitely cool but it's yeah no. It's a as funny. The fancy truck thing is relatively recent as well like the truck you brought from seventy seven though that those are pretty bare bones type deals now you got four doors size seats and and they're basically luxury cars of look a little bit less than they on the outside. They look pretty normal outside the raptor even platinum one to put a few badges and things like that but the cyber truck is a whole level of feather commitment that is beyond scope of the general public. And it's more in realm of supercar level head turning maybe even beyond. Yeah and do you like it. I get asked this all the time because people know how much i love my truck. Listen i plug. It asked this dude daily so this vehicle looks a lot like the warthog from halo and i play game as a kid. Yeah master chiefs coming out of that country is what makes that run so i got a soft spot you know i got a i like science fiction. I'm a weird guy thing though.

"I would agree. So what does that say. Then what does it say about scrolling a phone like why do we do it. When do we do it. Is it in the absence of any absence of opportunity or would we seek out more opportunity if we didn't have that glitch if we didn't have that pause button. Oh i don't know the answer. I mean you don't wanna be looking at your own screen time metrics. No i don't. But anyway i think they've probably some sort of makes there's probably some sort of way to Exercise in both areas and try to find a healthy dose of each thing. Yeah so if you're not doing them with what's your output. How many videos. You put out a week On on by serb. I don't know maybe like three two two to three and then over here. We were pretty crazy. We were on a crazy thing for a for a bit was like we're on a crazy thing for a bit on. He videos day. We'll because we clipped out we would clip out each subject. Yeah and then but we would shoot like whatever was happening in the news around a particular set of interests will be like a remember. You guys do anything about the fifty chips and it would be an hour a around in our which would cut down into maybe fifteen different segments at each one at a different amount of time just trying to make it easier to select for what you wanted to watch. And it was a model that existed for log form. It was a way to make long-form digestible even you. You might get will he. You'll get clipped. I guess we clinton yeah. You're gonna go baby clip right up. Peterman mackinnon how many clips. I don't even know where you would cut. We haven't even talked about the truck that you had in here yet. we are. We allowed to talk about that. We are people have seen by now on your channel on yours. No you haven't even on. I know man i didn't i didn't kirk. Still working on it. He need is the is a serious edit going on with. I don't know it was gonna be looking. You know what there's spice on that at it tight much there might be. Yup is probably not a youtube short.

We're wearing similar colors to and from around this area. It's kind of terrifying act or do you think the truck. Yeah yeah. I said in a video. I think it's Really important vehicle. The f one fifty electric the lightning. I think it's important because it's really a clientele that should be the toughest to flit like the truck clientele. How often are you reminded of the massive fuel tank on your f one fifty. Yeah you don't go to the gas station very often now you really don't. It's quick. it's it's a. It's a quick process to just get fueled up for another in our case. Almost eight hundred kilometers.

"As people probably think we'll because that's all they have to go on. Yeah but now you're sitting over there. Yeah and you may be talk for many hours on end and a person feels like okay. That's a few more percentage points. Yeah but it's hard to be you when you're broadcaster enough. I mean because i even this conversation right here. How does that happen on your channel. How you channel about me. Yeah been your narcissist. But i would do. I would still try. I would still try to. I would still try to do it. But i think that's where my creative brain and what people expect of me being the photo video guy like i'm the photo video guy You're you're the unboxing guy right. If you if you had a an episode making a pizza. I i would watch. I'm your friend. I would say the difference there though. Is that if i know this. I'm like splitting hairs here. Like i dunno nitpicking or something with them but like just made a decision back. When i started my channel that it wasn't going to be my name for example and even though it's been the majority of everything that i've done for the last wanna say even though that's what it is. It's like if a person approaches me and goes your unbox therapy on lake. That is not the name of a person you know. Perception of like an account online. That's getting from it because that's what it is and it's like man. There isn't any regular person exists in this in the environment presented there which is like in the context of the existence of a product and analysis. And it's not even close to a person. I understand like you gotta identifies things in some way or another. But it didn't it didn't feel to me like the project in of itself felt so outside the realm of a personal identity or at the time what people had which were profiles like on facebook facebook profile. Imagine a regular person's facebook profile but this is what they post every time. Really easy easy bud on vacation. Look back abor. You're something it doesn't seem right.

"You know the freedom to progress try new things and evolve into new styles of content. So yeah it is interesting as well because like the ultimately we had to make things on the platform that people wanna see and we can't help but like jump around and platform and see what people are watching. I mean you can't help not look at that. Yes your livelihood he got you do your own research. You know what i mean. Do you ever do you ever feel like you're trapped within what you specifically upload like. I only ever unbox things. That's it like if. I try anything outside the box bad pun. It won't work. I just built a box around myself. Dead even yeah. Even if i don't have the box. I'm in the box so like so by portion is satisfied. I've seen some of the creative takes on on on boxing's you've done. There's there's got to be a spark in there that you're just thinking to yourself sometimes this. Can we do this different. Listen there's no magic. Technique is no satisfactory way in which you're going to constantly keep scratching that thing that you're gonna every like you're going to go to work sometimes. Yeah sometimes you're going to go to war day. It's still a job and you don't have to really dread that like look. A big part of my experience has been excitement in ride itself of like watching the whole thing transpire and certainly won't put together a cool piece of content. But at the same time you know you got your own story going alongside it which is like in my case. Some dude who doesn't know what he's gonna do wants to do some dude. who like. Has this really bizarre background of experience in a thousand different things that like knows how to put video online. Yeah and then get on the roller coaster and then start riding we. I mean and every so often looking back at the ground you covered. Yeah and like anything. Beyond that. That i would tell you would be some sort of a hindsight version of how i got there. I had an interest in technology. You know which drove the direction to a certain extent. But there's plenty of times alana. Were i mean. I was in my defacto status on something that i published as i hate that. I hate that thing. You know what i mean like onto the next thing like i don't know here's how that things screwed up or this thing is i think i have a healthier relationship with it lately.

"That sounds kind of risky that you remember what year that would have been it would have been twenty fifteen twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen It wasn't till twenty seventeen. Maybe the end of two thousand sixteen. We both quit the same weekend and we both started uploading and within. I would say several months. We were both over three hundred thousand subscribers now. Where to both of you communicating as this as you were undertaking these new endeavor so it was like a lot of back and forth. What are you doing in seeing and check this out. This site will captions for you on the call. What does that mean. Why do we need captions. And oh thumbnails work better this way or this way and it was kind of like really cool to actually have a friend who's going through it at the same time and still to this day. We're pretty we're pretty close So it's been nice to have that person and so. What were you uploading baghdad. Two thousand fifteen twenty fifteen twenty sixteen. That's my office. That was my old home ever all in my bedroom in my spare bedroom at home. That's right. I was uploading everything i was doing. Camera tory rebels. I just thought. I'm really good at teaching stuff because teaching magicians how to do tricks so i was like all just teach people how to use cameras and a lot of people thought like well. You've got a good knack for this. You're really you're really good at communicating things making them clear and entertaining to watch and a lot of online and things that you're seeing online. Were doll really boring stuff. I would just put you to sleep. So i thought okay. I can come in and add some entertainment value to these styles of videos and actually teach people modern techniques in a modern way from someone who i think is modern who they would really relate to more so than what's out there now. And it worked. Bast uploaded one video. It went viral. I sent it everywhere. I remember e mailing it to dig. Video eight camera hacks. In ninety seconds was the first video that popped off. Get enough to me. Yeah the namely. That wasn't even ninety seconds. I'm pretty sure. Got the math on that. Probably why it worked actually.

Apple's Mysterious New AirPods Pro
"Gonna kick it off with a story about some airpods pro. Apparently apple is working on apparently working on getting rid of the iconic. Damn these line That's a little piece of comes down. Some people joked early on it was like a little toothbrush now. They shrunk the stem on the pro model from the non pro version and recently we talked about here initial mr lebron. James was spotted as what happens when you're a celebrity. Will you'll never know something like this. No you get spotted saying he was spotted but lebron james wasn't even really spotted because he just posted a photo on his own instagram having been spotted by photographer his hands on that picture. Interesting he just copy and paste it you know i mean. A photographer tastes the photo of him on the way into the game. He just do a quick copy paste. I guess so anyway. So he had on his unreleased earbuds and he's had to deal with beats in the past and beats has up until this point up until that pair which he presumably leaked. But it's not really league because it's obvious that it's intentional anyway. Up until that pair they never had a full like minimal in ear design without any type of earhook or anything like that and so does have a little grip tab on it by the looks of it. But the whole thing is enclosed in the ear. And there's definitely no stem now. Presumably with the beats brand new would take this headphone that he was wearing and you would implement a similar setup for an apple product like. Why should be apple's own product. They owned beats. Obviously why should their own product have this stem on it. And then the selling simultaneously these beats product. Which does it need. It and looks like it's much

Ford F-150 Lightning Gets Elon Musk's Attention
"Sauce watching this thing late last night. It was a wild little introduction. Ford put on over there. I guess just outside detroit they had this huge projection and he didn't nighttime watching nine thirty my time and of course it was all about the electrification of ford. An all these dinosaurs coming online so to speak as far as electric vehicles are concerned because this is a big one here. I think this particular situation is bigger than they did with the machi. 'cause you know how it is with the f. one fifty. It's just a huge is a monster in the automotive gang and tesla you were talking before we started rolling feels kind of like a missed opportunity to get their truck out in the world and i know they had all they were. There was preoccupation. It's hard to make cars. And and they had their moment with the cyber trip day. Just didn't i gave them. I know a few hundred dollars once upon a time I didn't hear anything. Some people are starting to hear something. Actually talk a bit more about it in a moment cyber strikes a whole different thing though you and i were talking. How is every single trades. Person gonna wanna roll up to the job site in the cyber truck. Maybe not maybe there's a comfort level to traditional form factor but the point being is more round or my perception on the state of things as it is right now is more around ten avail- availability ability to deliver. Because we had a story from the other day about that. One enemy fighter dare you. She was saying. Where's my model x. Ordered it way back when people when it comes to tesla or any brand that they really love. Brands would a ton of fandom and hype also that innovate burr.

Google Outlines Plans for the FUTURE
"So yeah that was one thing that they talked about a couple things that caught me on the hardware front or this was the main one that caught me on the harbour front was them announcing google announcing that wairoa s will partner with samsung. It'd be a samsung partner. Who because you know samsung has been all about this ties. Instead of they've been building their own stuff and as far as apple watch alternatives. Samsung has kind of been that player and a believe they had. They were using where at one point in their products. So this is a big deal that their partner up now and they actually google say complimentary things about samsung like through his partners. You we're going to get better battery life samsung's pretty cool sans. We like samsa sharia and so again. You don't always have these giants in space talking fondly of one another but it appears across multiple moments in the in the presentation that samsung and google or getting along right now at least in wearables another story ruins e as the show progresses. I got a lot to cover today told you this before. I'm a little pent up because we can show yesterday and of course we had the weekend so i got stuff for people today. Cure so bottom line now the other piece to add to the wearable front. You made the partnership with samsung on a wearable device wairoa s but then also remembered his little acquisition. We had fitbit on knows a few billion dollars this way or that way between friends. Don't get too worried about it. And they're like oh we're gonna put that to us now too so not only are you can get the better battery life through our up to thirty percent better battery life thriving developer community by working with samsung s with a unified platform.

Apple Discussed 'Punitive Measures' Against Netflix
"At big apple. Epic has been saying look. Apple has been squeezing us over here for those thirty points on that app store. We want options. We wanna do things We want to Pass that savings back onto our customers. All sport night player. He tried to do it. Got kicked out the store and now we're in court and this is such a big court case because there's all kinds of implications within about app store operates. How apple operates all this stuff going on and so other information has kind of come about as a consequence of the core case emails or getting exposed tactics things like this so now we have some emails that were revealed about apple's relationship with netflix's because apple has this rule set which is very rigid. But then in a handful of special circumstances there compromises that are made when really matters netflix. Obviously one of those cases amazon also one of those cases when he came to prime video. Where now you're looking at these emails and saying oh man. That apple does really care. In some circumstances and so these netflix's as an example was able to basically give up on subscriptions through the app store back in two thousand eighteen now. Normally this like this is economically speaking. How many subscribers do you have What is it like a hundred. How many subscribes you have netflix. Salat many many millions. I got a number in here.

Apple Warns of An "Imperfect Fit"
"We're gonna kick it off with some apple news as we usually do and this one is was a bit of a concern for people around ipad pro and the new i. Pepperoni twelve point nine inch ipad pro because that ipad pro is a little bit ever so slightly fatter than the previous version just the tiniest doodo raca and the reason being is because it's a new display technology. So he got you know. They've got a fancy display in a twelve point. Nine this by the way does not affect the eleven edge. So they're goofing around. Led's as you know and trying to improve the display bisness fatness consequences when people start to stress out because apple said that the previous generation keyboard case. They call it. The magic keyboard was not going to work with the new ipad. appropriate said spent whatever i spent. I don't know three hundred bucks or whatever. It was for the magic keyboard. And i gotta get another one of those two. I'm showing four forty nine in canada. It's probably three forty nine in the us on the keyboard case where twelve point nine so people. Listen i say saying. Get the new to appoint ninety then. I gotta get the new keyboard as well. That was a kind of the line after the event. So it's going to be a big expenditure you're gonna be to jesus into this thing By time is said and done. You may have been hoping you're gonna anyway. We have new news here that there are a few articles written on it and it was your usual planned obsolescence conversation. It was your usual here. We go again as far as apple's concern here we go here. We don't channel but it turns out apples. I guess they're they're trying to alleviate some of your stress by saying oh you know what we know. These products aren't out there yet. But you can still use it.

Fifties and sixties those. The family and sleeved functioned more as servants. They were allowed to live elsewhere and earned an income for their labor when the civil war broke out and richmond was named the capital of the confederacy. The delicate balance grew even more precarious. Elizabeth made her first foray into espionage. When libby prison opened. just outside of richmond. The prison was infamous for its horrible conditions sympathetic to the union prisoners inside elizabeth and her mother convinced the local confederate general to let them bring food to the prisoners. They masked their request under the guise of female benevolence in actuality elizabeth and. Her mother were organizing. They passed messages to the prisoners. Custard dish that included a secret compartment the hidden messages in books and bribed the guards to give the prisoners more food and water. They even organized several successful. Prisoner escapes often hiding the fugitives in their own. Home all of these efforts were funded with their personal family. Fortune elizabeth and elisas benevolence didn't go unnoticed confederate neighbors were critical of their interest in the union soldiers in her diary elizabeth wrote. I have had breathe. Men shake their fingers in my face and say terrible things. We had threats of being driven away. Threats fire threats of death in an attempt to counteract these suspicions elizabeth and her mother arranged public outings with confederate soldiers and prison wardens in december of eighteen sixty three general benjamin butler formerly recruited elizabeth as a union spy. Elizabeth agreed and quickly became the head of general butler's spy network. She assembled a group of twelve agents. To collect information on the confederates. one of elizabeth's most valuable spies was a woman. Her family previously enslaved mary. Jane richards if you haven't already you can hear mary.

"Going to check in on deb holland's first few weeks as interior secretary to say she has hit the ground. Running would be an understatement. The secretary went to utah earlier this month. Making good on a promise to the state's congressional delegation to visit bears ears and grand staircase escalante national monuments before making a recommendation to president biden about whether to restore or expand the monument boundaries. That president trump attempted to shrink now. It's worth noting that the tribal nations that originally proposed the bears ears national monument have made it clear. They want president biden to protect all one point nine million acres of their proposal. Not the one point. Three million acres that president obama protected in two thousand sixteen and after that utah visit secretary holland signed two major secretarial orders. That really set the stage for what we what we're going to see from the interior department under her leadership and so joining me to help break down everything in those orders and talk about national monuments and a whole lot.

"The most powerful galaxy yet as samsung said to us this morning they outed put out a little teaser and they'll commercial and then i was on twitter and people were putting the i think my old pal danny was putting the eyeballs in order. Eyeballs emoji Next to it. And i was like wait. What samsung even wait. What weather ultra i here. What are we talking about most powerful galaxy saying well this one. Twenty-one ultra ultra the name Can't be doing this. Nothing on the schedule for more powerful galaxy Here's the here's the thing though will okay samson. They use the galaxy branding on more than just the smartphone. True galley see Gordon samsung and so two most powerful galaxy is obviously a different product segment then smartphones and they are scheduled or at least on on track here to release some different products. That are not smartphones. And so i don't know if this is a confirmation with Here we have some findings that probably was actually going on. Here is laptops and now phones at all and they're using the impact branding and you're using the galaxy named you're keeping it all that big. You is because they know the smartphone. Get all the attention and not laptops can come along for the ride.

Apple Announces its Next Event
"We got some news here. We got an apple event. An actual date on it. And i think this time around. It was like a lot of rumors that there was going to be an event sooner than it didn't happen and i just stuff happening on social media. But you know everyone's trying to always predict when the next apple events going to be because it tends to mean new products to look at or at least they're going to announce and there's many different products that could fit into somebody's events. Many product categories where people are waiting for new things. Well as always new things. Well of course it seems kind of funny that whole process of waiting for the new thing when there's always new things it's like china line it exactly with the newness like i want it. When it's the newest hands kind of thing they glenmede by this is you have those buyer's guides for products and it's not about when you need the thing. It's about like don't upgrade. Now there's going to be a new one and fear that you're going to buy the thing and then two weeks later is going to be a new one or even a month like people want that whole year out of their thing. I mean i kind of get it understand it but anyway in this case apple's going to be putting out some stuff it's wwe's can be a virtual event so obviously once upon a time you will have people physically show up to developers conference and it's not just about product talk because obviously it's also about development They put a lot of attention on app developers. And things like this. That are on ios just like last year it'll be online. Only ww dc as an event is known where apple typically unveils iphone ipad. Apple watch apple tv. And max offer us a lot of. That's definitely not happening here.
Game over: Google to shutter its in-house Stadia game development studio
"Stadium is shutting down its internal studios changing its business. Focus when stadium i launch. I don't know if you remember the presentation. But they were talking about. How okay we're going to beat his game streaming platform but they were also saying. Oh yeah. we're games company now to be building games for stadia. We have this development studio in montreal. We have this other one elsewhere. Remember what the other one was. And prepare yourself because google's making games or at least through these development studios and they're backing out of that portion by the looks of it and they're shifting their their focus now. This is interesting because obviously gaming is hot right now. The consoles are having no trouble the gp user having no trouble by the looks of it and we're on the verge of Are becoming more widely adopted. It's just gaming is just a really hot right now And you felt like google had to commit to this in a big way. You felt like they. You mean you didn't feel like they had to. You felt like they did in that initial presentation and afterwards someone who response was a bit lukewarm. However things have been kind of building because all of a sudden stadium started pop back up around the launch of cyberpunk really demanding game and it turns out that one of the better ways to play it was actually on stadia But maybe it's too little too late or maybe it's just inside of a giant company like google. The performance measures have to be so substantial to really hang in there. I don't know. But i would assume they got a lot of ways to make money. Will he do know shifting one place to the next. They say you know what maybe we don't want to be making a game themselves. Look that looks complicated.
New Tech Lets You Charge From Across the Room
"Air charge. Claims it's capable of five watt wireless charging over several meters. You know people are very skeptical of this really. Yes you why i mean. People are scared enough about five g magin power just floating through the air stressed out. These people Apparently is is very difficult to do. And the reason we haven't seen it yet in a product is not that you can't do it but that if if it was to be successful in transferring power it would wouldn't be very efficient. I mean that said this people. It's still criticized. Just regular wireless charging on a charge matt saying. Hey that's less efficient. There's more power loss there than if you plug a cable in. This is another level of that especially when you see the the advertised. Five watt charge speed which is obviously not very compelling in two thousand twenty one but you would assume there would be some pretty strong technological barriers to rolling out some technology as cool nonetheless. You could play the video cool nonetheless. They're talking future talk now. You do have to have this. Big giant appliance. There in your house as well your apartment. Yeah and how cool would it be to walk and room and your phone starts charging with the animation. That's very cool. that's the future. I mean it feels. Amazing is just using like a hundred megawatts a day. Yeah your your your toes or tingling your toes. Her hair's just within a few meters. A five watt remote charged multiple devices by the way. You're just chilling your gaming whatever. You don't even have to think about it. Your devices just always charging staying charged. This is a demo will. this is a perfect scenario. Locale perfectly apartment is look at this guy. Everything is so clean. He's never even had anything. You didn't even have a pillow or a blanket on the couch and need have any garbage lane around. He charges wirelessly. Dude has got it all figured out. Yeah you have garbage. Oh yeah did you see the desk before we started rolling over here takada cups and things. Yeah but not on the ground. No not on the ground. But i'm saying he doesn't. I'm saying it's not lived in. Don't tell me that's lived in. I i know some people who have pull it off like that. But there's no personal there's no personal items true there's no knickknack or a trinket is no not personalized. They'll keep safe keepsakes. These keeping nothing. It goes straight out the door. Once he's done with this guy all you keep the me air charge So it's a huge device is important for us to say at this moment. That eight air charge is a huge device. It's about the size of a Fridge yeah many fridge. Pretty much is about the size of a mini fridge. Joe so you can have this luxury. So you've gotta find space for a mini fridge instead of just having cable. Coming out or a typical wireless charger. But you know me. I like that next technology. But i gotta tell you what. The potential drawbacks argue This story tex pop many have talked about this. The weights being advertised five watts to your device. The argument here is it. May require one thousand watts plus of input power just to get the five watts to your phone. That's an ugly figure. I don't think anybody's gonna like the. I've been dealer with watts lately. You have yeah and he got me. It's got me all stressed out. 'cause i've been trying to power some some really powerful stuff like kind of electric car type of power consumption and you need special breakers and you know you can't be going off a residential line for this stuff. I mean so to to give up now thousand watches. Okay you can plug that into a regular receptacle regular receptacle. North american eighteen hundred watts. Well i don't know if you know you signed up for what talk today. I didn't know. I didn't know i was gonna do what today but a thousand is just. It's just crazy for five. No one's going to be happy with that transaction. Certainly the environmental types are going to be very upset commenting below that particular video. Get on my face. Save the planet planet earth. Mother earth greengrass Blue ocean etc
Lew Cirne on founding Wily Technology and New Relic
"Lou. Welcome to the show scrapes video. Thank you you started new relic awhile ago and before that you started a different company wiley. Both of these companies were focused on what we now call observability hauer software applications today different than from when you started new relic. Well yeah you know. I'll talk about what's different today but also talk about what the same and i guess. It's what's the same as so long as our software there is going to be bugs and they're going to be problems that happen only in production and that's that'll be true forever. I think so as long as humans create software and just like in the medical field are so long as people get sick. Then there's going to be a need for doctors. And so i think so. Long as there are software. There's going to be need for tooling and visibility capabilities to help understand. Soffer behaves when it's running under load in particular and take that understanding to improve the performance availability stability and the customer experience of that software. So when i started wiley twenty-three years ago the idea was this brand. New thing. At the time in ninety eight was java and the idea was let's see inside. Jvm without asking our customers to change any of their source code and put that visibility to production low overhead and captures much data as possible and presented an easiest way possible to help customers debug their jvm's and fast forward to two thousand eight. When i found new relic the thought was well. It's a multi language world now and applications aren't running on two or three physical servers are running on twenty or thirty or so back in that time. Virtual hosts and it was very early in the cloud but people those hosts for running increasingly in new environments like amazon web services. So the idea was. How do you put visibility into that are composed of say a half dozen services running in a virtual environment where. There's multi-language in that. That really was the sweet spot. If new relic when it was founded through the first several years and now here we are in two thousand twenty one what an application looks like today is often hundreds of services thousands of containers more and more in coober netease incredibly complex. A lot of a synchronous work a lot of stuff going on systems like kafka and so trying to make sense of a really complex system is more challenging than ever and it seems like what's behind all of this complexity is imperative to help developers be more productive to first of all have smaller more independent teams who can deploy with pretty good isolation and rely on good. Api's and things like that to allow lots of those teams to collaborate on a large effort at high velocity but so that that increases velocity but it comes at the cost of increased complexity on how that whole integrated system works and the solution to that in our opinion is complete visibility into all the application micro services all of the infrastructure and the end user experience. All into a common platform that operates at massive scale and really the guts of observability. If you understand the difference between observability monitoring i'd say monitoring is about telling you when something's wrong but observability is having access to all the telemetry need to answer. Why is something wrong which you don't even know what question you need to ask next to get to the understanding of what's wrong in today's world it just like collecting a massive amount of data and trying to make sense of it. Is you know as rapidly as possible.
Elon Musk is donating a $100 million prize for carbon capture technology
"Along. Musk says he will donate one. Hundred million dollars to whoever invents the best carbon capture technology. I think he put this on twitter in the form of a tweet. Actually yes. here's the tweet donating one hundred m towards a prize for best carbon capture technology. Now what this is will is obviously for the environment. The he's looking for any technology that can capture carbon dioxide trapping it directly from the air or just before it gets emitted from factories or power plants. I suppose there could be a variety of proposals for how to do this but in capturing it you can obviously avoid having it enter the atmosphere and you know damaging the ozone and all the rest of it in fact what they do will after they capture it. They pump it back down to earth where it can stay like get fucking. Yeah he's can stay hidden in there or they can use it for something
Apple Mac bringing back the SD card
"Starting to look like this. Next mac book pro is gonna be the mac book. Where sorry is gonna be the mac book. We were wrong because we already talked about the fact that there maybe probably moving away from the touch bar. We already know the fact. They went to an older style keyboard design. Yesterday we talked about or maybe two days ago that they were going to go back to having a mag safe connector. Today's report we're gonna put an st card in there s the card reader so this was a long experiment for them. You know what it was. Well let me tell you what happened. They let everybody go and buy the minimalist design figured out how much they missed having features so that now in this one comes out and gives them all the features back they rush out like crazy real quick to pick those up. So it's our fault right. Yeah i blame you really do. Yeah i card reader. How nice would it be. Just having st carburetor. Maybe they do some even crazier and put an hdmi port and now just fantastic. Let's not get good type stuff. We're asking for here analyst. Ming cheek will outline his expectations for the new fourteen inch and sixteen inch macbook pro models. Coming later this year with the mag makes a charging connector the removal of the touch bar a new flat edge design and a return of more ports built into notebook for expanded connectivity. I mean i'm so sick. Docs and i'm so sick of dogle today on the macbook air. I watched mo- have to pull out the docking station and everything else. He was tangled up in wire. He had wires because he needed to as the and he wanted to connect an ethernet. And i don't think we're going to eastern at jack on here but still so the next s the card Part of it comes from bloomberg's mark gurman the upcoming macbook pros and example of apple's renewed focus on mac loyalists. The company is planning to bring back in sd card slot for the next macbook pro so users can insert memory cards from digital cameras. Yeah that's what you do with an s. d. card slot. The feature was removed all the way back in two thousand sixteen hundred twenty one. Now this is kind of unlike apple but who knows you never know what they're gonna do remember when they went for the trash can mac pro for example and then they completely backed off the next time around They there were some issues. People wished that they had more ability to upgrade that device switch out. Gp's and things that they wanted a traditional design and so apple went right back to the tower the regular style tower. So i think it's the right move. I don't think. I think if you had you had a plan and things didn't really pan out then that's fine. You know you admit it and you move on this trash can was kinda cute but it just wasn't ready for prime time. We have the rumor that the next model could be a little cube but that they're probably going to keep the full-sized towers as an option. But this is about the macbook pros and the two thousand fifteen macbook pro. Not only did it have an st card reader. It also had in hdmi port. And you're be ports. Which i know.

Apple reportedly switched 2M units of production from iPhone 12 mini to Pro
"Apple reportedly switched to million units of production from iphone. Twelve mini to parole We've been talking about this. We kind of already knew it. The fact that maybe out the gate the mini model. Not so hot not as hot as maybe originally imagined or maybe we just have too many iphones to choose from in twenty twenty twenty twenty but it certainly is starting to look very clear that the models people want more of our either the regular iphone twelve or one of the pro models and in this case. They've gone ahead and as far as the report is concerned. They have decided to change over some of the production line to help out with pro supply and move away from the mini supply. That apparently nobody wants far fewer people want than potentially was originally imagined. Does this mean it's a bad phone. Does this mean it will never turn itself around no not necessarily. It's still cheapest of the bunch if you don't include older models or the iphone. Se maybe over. Time through a variety of incentives. Maybe they find some some places to put those devices but another another consideration here is the different markets in which apple moves these phones. You may be sitting there in your own specific market thinking. This is the whole world like you will. You might wake up on a canadian morning and just say to yourself. Well this is how most people live and no they don't will all right get it together. I'm usually wrong. Yeah yeah exactly. Yeah as we were talking about prior to the episode running here. Yes and so different. Markets have have different needs in different wants and even if there was a push for a nostalgic smaller one handed smartphone in one market. That doesn't necessarily mean it's the case elsewhere. For example in china they think that the lower end models of iphone. Twelve are performing better than in the us. They estimate that shipments grew forty seven percent year over year in the december quarter reaching a new eighteen month. High of twenty percent market share driven in large part by adoption of the iphone twelve which it captured the most iphone installed base share of any iphone launched in china over the past four years. So you see in china. They want the stock iphone twelve. Oh i'm sure they want some of the pros to but you would've thought hey if they're interested in the lower end iphone twelve. Maybe they might go for the mini but apparently not as much as originally mentioned we continue to believe. The iphone will outperform expectations in the december quarter as the mix shift to hire an iphone. Twelve models is a tailwind revenue growth iphone. Twelve pro league times remain extended far beyond any model. La- launched in the past four years at ten days so when when pro originally launch actually a little hard to get your hands on one in certain markets and the the mini thing. I don't know will they can it. That's really what the question comes down to. The u continuing the mini. Can you support it at a lowered at a lower demand. Does it start to make a comeback at some point or do you digit completely with the next model and just say to yourself. People are gravitating towards the other ones is not worth our our hassle or are headache. I personally like as many options as possible. But i can also understand if it doesn't fit into your efficiency plans and the expense of keeping those other lines on a phone that you know isn't i mean it's not even just the production lines it's also the designers and everything else involved in keeping an extra model but we've talked about this in the past. We just have more evidence here to suggest that the mini was not exactly the hit. That at least apple expected in the short term
Qualcomm Putting Some Apple in Snapdragon!?
"Will you know that. Apple's been making a lot of progress with the silicon products. Put out and most. Recently people were talking about the m. One the mobile chip for laptops. And it'll probably make its way into desktop computers. They're pro stuff eventually some version of it they'll throw in exxon it number in there whatever. It is a bunch more course. So that's been the most recent thing that people have been talking about is kind of the performance. They've been able to achieve for a company that's so fresh to that market. But they're not really that fresh because they've been doing big things in the mobile processor department for a really long time with a series lineup culminating in the most recent version world away in a fourteen. Yes iphone twelve. Twelve pro Ipad air right has a version of that doesn't it. They put a different name on it. When it goes in the ipad honestly can't remember. Did they put an x. Or something huts in the okay. It appears to fourth generation ipad. Air as well okay. So anyways look. They're doing big things to the point. Where if you check the benchmarks. If you're one of these people apple just been crushing it for a really long time now. This doesn't always equate to being the fastest device. Interact with it. It really depends on the use case. Scenario and benchmarks are benchmarks. Take it for what it is but it does mean something. It means that that apple is doing big things in that department with the those engineers that work there and It's been a differentiating characteristic for them is not just the stuff has been an amazing performance perspective but also that they are so very integrated you know from the design and then the software and the The whole picture so it has kind of left people on the android side. Maybe a feeling a little little lacking now the necessarily me. Because typically. If i'm on the flagship snapdragon like not bumping into those performance barriers in most cases. But you know every company wants to have these bragging rights will listen to this. What took place today. Qualcomm hired a company. Called new via a nubia is a company which was a branch out of numb from a number of employees responsible for having worked on chips at apple. Okay these dudes new. They go out of their way. Like you know we can. We can do some stuff now if i. They were focused mostly on server side of things. They were not necessarily focused on mobile but obviously qualcomm saw something in their potentially whatever intellectual property exists inside of there while i hope not just their minds but also somewhere inside of their records and their designs or appease their you know whatever it is that they're working on qualcomm obviously thinks if they're gonna by the way they they spent one point four billion dollars qualcomm thinks they're going to extract some of that and potentially put it into their products via the snapdragon lineup. So this into this for a second okay. New was founded in two thousand nineteen and it was a a trio that were involved in the most important chipset companies from intel amd the api arm and broadcom and they worked at apple where they played a part in designing the high performance a series chips for iphones and ipads. That's the key line right there. And we've been talking about this in the other direction with apple and tesla apple out there grabbing some tests engineers tesla executives. It's like what do you know about it. Yeah it's a shakedown piece falling out there. That's how it works. You know they flip them upside down like the change comes out of the pockets. Yeah in cartoonish way. And that's how that's all they have to do and then they just send them on their way to go work. We got the change out. Your pocket. of course doesn't work like that. No i mean this stuff happens. How corporate world all right. That's how it goes so even though these guys aren't necessarily working a mobile chips right now qualcomm believes. There's something in there that there's a chance to do something. Big
iPhone 13 Gets Thicker...
"You remember the other day. We were talking about that next ipad. Possibly coming out soon possibly coming out. I think it was march. Some people don't rush out and get an ipad pro right now because supposedly they're going to be doing this many. Led mesnier micro mini led ipad pro and the rumor in that for that particular device was that is going to have to get fatter to accommodate that new display tek possibly to house a slightly larger battery but that is going to be fatter. Which of course apple doesn't typically like to do to make it next. The next generation of any device fatter maybe they made things fatter on the eleven eleven pro. Eleven pro max. I can't remember but then once they did people really liked the battery life. Well anyways point being is this same situation is sounding likely to occur with the iphone thirteen. And that's right. Well we're talking about the iphone thirteen already. Oh because that's how these things work tech moves. It goes ten eleven twelve thirteen. Yeah i don't know it's crazy already mode iphone thirteen because you gotta you gotta start getting prepared setting aside your extra thousand bucks or whatever it is anyway. There's a couple things. Couple cool things that have come out of this particular rumor originating mac os a car. That's the japanese mac. Site that often shows up in rumor mill. Shoutout then reposted nine to five mac anyway. The details about the upcoming iphone. Thirteen is first off. They expect to keep all of the models. So you know how we've been a little curious on a mini side. Yes about the future. And fate of the iphone twelve mini or whatever any many going forward iphone. Thirteen mini just mini iphones. Your current rumor here is that it's going to hang around that the entire lineup is going to hang around it. The design will stay the same to you. Know they don't want to rework a whole design. They just came up with this flat edge shiny thing. Then what reworking hold design already. So it's going to have the same flat edges height and width of the devices remains the same but thickness increases by point to six millimeters. Yeah that's right shake your head. You can't handle extra point six this is out of control point to six millimeters. What does that too. It's like a quarter of a centimeter. That's right well. It's a quarter of a centimeter. It's something this device is so thin to begin with. It's something and so the idea here. Is that that may have something to do with the display technology. But the other part of the rumor is that it's going to have to do with the battery inside so we've been talking about promotion one twenty hertz on the iphone. Which isn't there yet. Well guess what happens when you go to one twenty hertz well promotion you start using a lot of battery

"To just turn a game on. And have myself a half hour. Let alone get into the texture. Here's a cool device, a new device that allows users to control computers with their tongues. This looks sort of like a retainer, and then it has a module where your time goes, and of course, there's a transmitter which is going to wirelessly move those inputs to whatever device you're interacting with non I. saw this I thought to myself, what the heck, what are you GonNa do with this? You only have a tiny little thing you can depress and move front or up and down with your tongue but then I thought to myself men, you don't actually need that much movement. To control interface, now that interface may have to be custom made for your particular scenario. But if it was, you can just you could go through lists pretty effectively and select options just within up and down movement. Now, of course, this device here is targeted at people who can't use their other extremities person who's paralyzed or something like this or a person who is occupied controlling other things with their hands and once an extra input. there's a demonstration video on the bottom here it's called embrace. It's a thesis by Dorothy I should get her name. Was Dorothy class. And what you'll see here is she actually in installs the Emmylou start like a mouth guard or retainer intern mouth, and then there's an earpiece that wraps around a little wire that goes between the earpiece and the mouthpiece, and then this little ball slides up and down. On, the on the inside of this mouth component than you can control that with your tongue. So I'm thinking up down to scroll list and then maybe. Depress it for a click. That's where my head is at the demonstration here is actually a game. It's a game of Pong. And maybe that's coming up in a in a short moment here yet here we go and so she's able to control the tall object Tong instead of Pong obviously, and what are those called? What would you call? The character is a character. The little rectangle that hits the ball in traditional Pong can control it up and down..
