What's going on with Tik Tok and WeChat?

"Don't know what's going on. With TIKTOK. Today this morning. was supposed to be the morning Tiktok was turned off and we chat to both owned by Chinese company Bite Dance. The. The idea. The US Commerce Department said Nope because it's Chinese and you know. You know. You know it's a it's a threat to our great national sovereignty or something. I don't really understand honestly the Chinese could spy on. US I. Guess. I guess or then then some who are a little more nuanced say well, it's not that they're just like our location. But they could propagandize us. Oh, you mean like facebook. Yeah. Like that. They don't. They don't need Tiktok they've got facebook. Anyway, the this has been going on and on and on and back in. August. He's the president said forty five days to. To Sell Yourself to American. Company. Microsoft and Walmart were bidding. So was Oracle, which is a big database company not really widely known among consumers but. A A very popular database for reasons no one understands fully in enterprise because it's not it's terrible but anyway, it's. It's been here a long time. I think it's really why it's so successful its owner Larry Ellison has become one of the wealthiest men in the world is busy bidding building building big yachts bigger than other people's yachts. That's what that's what you do. If you're a billionaire, you just build I, want my yacht to be bigger. Mr Ellison is also a supporter of the president and has held fundraisers and I think that helped a little bit. Because last Sunday. Microsoft said Yeah took talk. Told US we're out. An Oracle said, we didn't buy it but we are a tech partner and Walmart said I'm switching teams. I'm now with our Oracle okay. Between the two of them. Oracle and Walmart will have a a minority stake. In Bite dance by giving them some amount of money. For stock or something. and then it's so complicated. It turns out that that because bite dance has I think something like forty percent of its investors are in the US. They're adding that to the walmarts oracle stake in the commerce. Department says good. That's a majority. So, it is now on majority US owned the president said. All right. That's good. So he's approved this bid. In concept. He also says. this new company which will be called Tick Tock Global. This and so he's going to put the ban on hold for a week. TIKTOK global will also give five billion dollars in new tax dollars to the US. Five billion with a B. to set up. A new education fund is really a propaganda fund. The president has put together to teach children. To I don't know what loved your leader anyway it's Oracle take a twelve and a half stake in TIKTOK. Global Walmart tentatively agreed by seven and a half percent twelve makes twenty percent. And five of four of the five board seats will be filled by Americ- Americans. And then the courts. The the US judge in California has issued a preliminary injunction saying you can't ban we chat. From, the apple and Google stores. it's it's hard to understand really what the president would be for the Commerce Department saying Apple Google, you have to remove an APP from the store I don't think that's ever happened before. Commerce Department officials say we are prepared for long legal battle Oh. Great. Just what the world needs. Another long legal battle. This is this is just going to be an endless story. Isn't it? Tech talk you know. Is Is a fan favourite with the young ones? They? I don't know if you've seen it it's actually quite entertaining. I know you've seen it because they were buying ads on the NFL football games. Last weekend trying to guess Excite the American people about the potential for TIKTOK. You know I don't have a huge. Care A, lot about it. It's just another social network just weird that the US government says, well, we can ban it just we're just going to ban it. I don't think I don't know. We chat, which is a chat program not widely used in the US mostly by. Chinese citizens in the US and friends Chinese Americans with friends with friends and family in China. Because in China it's universal. Widely, used and not just as a chat program. It's not another. facebook. Messenger. Really, used for everything. So yesterday. The President says I approve the deal. In concept. We have and I think quite reasonably blocked. Chinese. Companies like wow way, and Z. T.. Because they are network companies and while whe. Especially has a lot of equipment in the five G. Networks and the threat is that an order from the Chinese government which would be fully legal in China to a Chinese company would say, Hey, just cut off that American stuff just turn it off or but get or so I can understand the reason to do that. Take talk a little bit more tenuous. So, a little bit more tenuous and I do feel bad. There's a lot of kids really fun funny videos and Tiktok, there's tiktok stars and making a ton of money. on Tiktok an a lot of fame and celebrity in fact sometimes. Too. Much fame and celebrity. There, there are those. On Tick Tock who say how I just I can't handle the fame. So but most people talk I think it's just a fun entertaining. I do I just don't know. We are phones are spy ing on us all the time by any company that can get an APP on your phone can pretty much spy on you all the time. That's why I'm really excited by what both. Google android and.

TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations

TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations

"And Tick Tock recently made headlines Everywhere when Resin Donald Trump signed an executive order. That would essentially ban the Chinese owned APP in the US for national security reasons. Unless it sells its operations here to an American company. And of course, if that were to happen. We would have nowhere to go to see a million potatoes singing. To Adele. And that would be a national tragedy. This week deal actually emerged between TIKTOK and American company Oracle but some people like Zachary say trump's tiktok policy effectively changes. Nothing. The argument goes like this. It will do little to protect Americans data from the Chinese government because there are still plenty of other ways China could get that data that this move is just a new kind of security theater basically. The hard work of data security according to this actually lies elsewhere. So, Zachary TIKTOK has been banned in Indiana a few other countries, but it's still pretty popular for now it's the most popular video sharing app i. can see why it seems like fun and there are mental creative. They're short I mean the whole nature of the medium has their time limited. What happened with Tiktok this week what happened this week? Should be clear but isn't. Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target. We'll be right back. Everyone wants to become a better leader this groundbreaking new book how to lead shows you how David M Rubenstein is one of the visionary founders of the Carlisle Group and host of the David Rubenstein Show where he speaks to leaders from every walk of life about who they are, how they define success and what it means to lead. Jeff bezos Richard Branson Warren Buffett Bill Gates Ruth Bader Ginsburg Phil Knight Oprah all of them and more are featured in how to lead this essential leadership playbook illustrates the principles and guiding philosophies of the world's greatest game changers discover the expert secrets to being. Effective innovative leaders. Walter Isaacson proclaims reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets, pick up a copy of how to lead wisdom from the world's greatest CEOS founders and Game Changers Bhai David Rubenstein available in Hardcover e book or audio, and we're back I get the kind of general personal security aspect of it. Where does the national security aspect of it come in? Is it because there's concern about people who worked at the Defense Department or the military whoever having to talk in in use in their households or people in the Defense Department are not allowed to use tiktok certainly not on their phones. For before this although they may have teenagers who That's vulnerability as well. So it wasn't primarily about like US government employees who might have sensitive data that tiktok would be the back door way that the Chinese government would spy on them but it was generalized sense of any foreign government that is using private American citizen data potentially for nefarious purposes represents a national security threat. Now, it clearly has not represented the kind of national security threat in the estimation of the White House right now when it's Russian. Manipulation of social media accounts the same principle should or would apply right. If you'RE GONNA ban, Tiktok you'd probably want to take action against the a variety of Russian media enterprises that are attempting to manipulate and hoover up American user data. Some of that data's you mentioned earlier in terms of third party is available to anybody for a price just because there's a marketplace for data. Which I think either most of us aren't aware of or frankly most probably don't care if politicos data on this podcast gets sold to fourteen vendors so that it can sell you and me products based on our other computer activity most people. Either like that, or don't care about that. But the national security concern is simply because it's a foreign government that could potentially. Use, our search history or browsing history nefarious. And again a, that might be true but be it's likely that all this kind of data is obtainable irrespective of whether or not a company called TIKTOK. Happens to have access to a lot of it. It's really interesting. So into this whole story comes oracle, you know huge hardware software firm but how did they get involved here? Yes. Oracle is is a multibillion dollar firm that has had the same public profile as Microsoft or Amazon or facebook or apple because most of its business is to other large companies, you know you and I don't tend to go out and buy Oracle piece of hardware because we don't need a hundred and fifty thousand dollars server or. Network system for our employees. They're largely corporate provider throw a huge provider to the Defense Department in terms of cheer equipment and material, and they're huge software company. They're one of the early Silicon Valley success stories and the billionaire founder Larry Ellison has been probably more conservative than not I don't know that I buy into the whole. This is a reward versus. A snub to the other potential main acquirer or partner for Tiktok, which was rumored to be Microsoft but this is an unusual. This doesn't usually fit oracle's business model. Well, that's that's interesting. So what is their interest in getting involved here perceived to be I'm not one hundred percent clear about that I mean look at could allow them to. Have a little bit more of a consumer facing brand. Again, I mean Oracle's. Primarily a software company primarily a database company. Maybe this could help them increase their databases. There's no way that this is a natural fit for goal. But at the same time north this a huge cost for Oracle, maybe it'll produce some American jobs. I mean. They're looking for growth just like everybody's looking for growth, and once you get to be the size of Oracle. Growth gets harder some of they're also looking for a DIFFERENT INDUSTRY TO BE President Chore? So. What exactly did they given? What did they get here that as of this conversation is not one hundred percent clear off so it was presented as or go by tiktok. That is not the case or at least it's not the case now and as possible. The deal will be scuttled or change given that all of this has to be approved by the government has to be approved by committee. Called Syfy S, which is the committee in charge of looking at global deals in terms of US national security, but it would seem that right now. The parent company of Tiktok saw own TIKTOK and get some of the economic benefits of TIKTOK. This Chinese company called by dance and that Oracle in turn will get a massive licensing deal to house Tiktok data and information on its own. Servers and using its own software. So the concern that the Chinese government would have access to that data would be allayed meeting under this agreement arrangement because the data would be managed by and it's housing would be arranged by a US company. The Chinese government could order by dance to turn over but by dance itself wouldn't actually have access to that data. It's interesting I mean based on what you said before it's they're they're they're moving this data from place a, it's not going to be in a different place and I guess the Chinese government will no longer have a key to the door. But as you said before there's many different ways that either the Chinese government or a lot of other. State or private actors can get hold on more or less any data they want to these days right? which kind of raises the question for point of all, this is ENA. It's certainly true. It would make it a little more challenging to get that data under that kind of arrangement. It seems like this a big fight over a big company. That's not actually really about. The literal subject of the conflict here. Yeah. It is totally fair to say that whatever the imbroglio about tiktok has very little to do with tiktok. And everything to do with US policy toward China. And the trump administration looking for some High profile optic to be able to say we're we're being tough on China and protecting American citizens. Again, the oddity of Tiktok is given that so many of its users or young adults. Who Don't vote although who would be? Extremely, Acetate it. If they woke up tomorrow and there's no TIKTOK meeting, it's probably not. The most popular move if what you're trying to do is gain support during a presidential election. So it's not entirely clear what constituency the served there wasn't like a huge congressional clamor for Oh my God. We're all big imperilled by these fifteen second videos. So where do you think things go from here in terms of into in terms of the real story behind all this in terms of the U., S., China relationship and the increasing in. them of that. So I think to some degree regardless of who wins the presidential election. there. Is a train that's left the proverbial station of increasing. Distrust and animosity between the United States and China. But within the context of an incredible amount of economic interdependence that you cannot just snap your fingers and several or at least not without massive massive harm to each part of that equation both the United States and China, and that's that's pretty unprecedented. Right? Right. That's like the Cold War analogy doesn't work because there was no economic relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union nineteen. Fifty S

Los Angeles - Nothing Preventing USC, Pac-12 Teams From Playing This Season, Gov Newsom

"A very weird day when it comes to PAC twelve football future of it got earlier this morning, the big ten announced they're coming back. They're coming back on October twenty third they they're confident that with their testing and the way that college football has kind of gone over the past couple of weeks at other schools that they can safely bring kids back now you and I both gone on record saying, we don't think it's the smartest thing in the world to play college football. So I'm not saying that I want college football to come back I don't. US He really wants to play their players. All wrote a letter to Gavin Newsom but here's why I'm bringing this up the big ten and outs were coming back Larry Scott the commissioner of the pack twelve immediately she's a statement that says because of the governor's guidelines we are not allowed to practice in the state of California which means USC Ucla Stanford and cal all would be unable to practice about an hour later Gavin newsom the governor California was doing a press conference and he was asked is that true that you won't allow those teams to practice? Here's part of what newsome hadn't his answer quote. I WanNa make this crystal clear. Nothing in the state guidelines denied the ability for the PAC twelve to resume quite to the contrary. This has been a misrepresentation of the facts and quote. What is Larry Scott and the PAC twelve referencing when they say. They can't play because of NEWSOM and NEWSOM says, it's not true who's telling the truth here newsome. Governor ain't Lion Larry Scott I. I've never been a fan of I think he could screw up a ham sandwich. But I but I do think that newsome is telling the truth and I think we're at the point John Now with the big ten resuming along with the SEC in the big twelve and the ACC, I think it is time for the PAC twelve to seriously consider resume or starting the season starting it earlier. They've got access to this rapid testing program. They're able to test players in in very short order really quick tests. I don't see any reason why the PAC twelve shouldn't be playing right now the. Monroe. Saint Brown Graham Harrell Bunch of USC. People have tweeted this letter out basically to goose to newsom saying, please let us play and newsom saying, no, you're you're allowed to play. It's it's up to your it's up to your athletic directors. It's up to your chancellor's I. Think it's time to have a vote among twelve PAC twelve schools and get a season started.

Oracle Wins Bid for TikTok in U.S., Beating Microsoft

"We're going to talk about this Tiktok dealing whether the algorithms are included. Do you have to write coalition? Rhythms. Do you know? Well, hold on. Let me let me just. You're all fired up. About it because there's So. Much I here we go. All right. All Right I. Know You're all fired up you're tweeting about it and I don't follow you believe it or not. But you know because I like to enjoy my way but someone retweeted your stuff to me and I'm like Oh. Jeez. Anyway, you're mad because trump said he wouldn't do a partnership ever when it was Microsoft and now he likes Oracle I figure it's because Larry News. Talk? All by our make I know I know what I'm GonNa do Marie Redesign and then I'm going to say Andrew hate it away making headlines this morning sources telling senior see that Oracle set to be announced as Tick Tock Tech partner in the US, it's unclear which parts of TIKTOK technology are being taken over by Oracle in talking about the secret sauce the algorithms and we don't own hasn't commented but I don't know whether the Chinese government would allow those algorithms there'd be taken our tick tock also. Won't comment on the potential. Microsoft had been considered the front runner by tiktok business until this weekend micro says it was notified by TIC TACs. Chinese, owner dance at its offer was rejected Walmart was teaming up with Microsoft on its bid their algorithm experts over there at Walmart in a statement late yesterday Walmart suggests it's considering joining Oracle's bid now. So Andrew, it's. It's kind of I guess it's kind of. Interesting you know Microsoft I initially saw how you were saying that that there's something nefarious going on here with the Oracle in in the White House and stuff but didn't I mean Microsoft didn't get the jet ideal right I mean do do we know that the White House does not like Microsoft specifically or do we do we think that they like Oracle more because ellison did a fundraiser and suffer cats is a Timing. What you know I'm not sure. I I'm not sure how the politics have played and and frankly weather they've played in any of this I think there's question marks now and we will see what ultimately transpires here. You know I spent. You probably never some great games yesterday. I. Unfortunately I was on the phone trying to figure out what was happening here, and the interesting part about this particular transaction is that originally Microsoft had started having talked back in June and July. With. Tiktok with by dance about what was going to be called the Tech Partnership. Then effectively, the clouds, the azure cloud was going to be the host for four. TIKTOK and that was the interesting part for for Microsoft. They were gonNA take a minority interest, not a controlling interest and then the trump administration turned around and said, no, no no, we don't like that because we have a problem here we don't. Believe. We still believe that there's a national security problem in less a US company owns a majority stake, a a effectively control of the company, and therefore the view was also the algorithm because that is the business and not just the business for the Algorithm to work the reason why you get fed cool or fun videos that are appealing to you is because what's happening is the company is taking the data. which you produce meaning the data of which videos you like, which ones you flipped through quickly and what other things you're producing, and then they're going and showing you stuff that you like. So they need the that's like the oil they need the oil for the algorithm to work, and so once you take the algorithm out of China and put it in this country. Then all of a sudden China has A. Problem and so the question in this in this new transaction with Oracle is they're saying this is a tech partnership to that actually the algorithms not coming with well, the algorithm doesn't really work if you can't feed data. So the question is how you can do that in a secure way. Is there a secure way to do it and I? Think that's that's the question right now on the table Joe and. Whether they like Oracle or not I don't know what? The the this is Dan. Saying. We don't know at this point whether the White House will sign off on this I guess what do we have indications at this? One's going to be okay with them versus the other Microsoft too much we have. Already have gone, my understanding is that the early indications of the White House is going is trying to find some form of a compromise. Now, it's interesting because from a antitrust and competitive landscape, you would've thought actually that a Microsoft Walmart deal arguably would have been better in many other ways, which is to say that if Tiktok went to Microsoft all of a sudden, you could you potentially could build a real meaningful meaningful competitor to a facebook. So if you thought of anti-trust issues with facebook or potentially with Google on the advertising side. Potentially against Amazon if you thought it could that far when it comes to Walmart's involvement of the. So in a way that transaction created all sorts of other benefits beyond the national security issues, potentially sort of up ending the landscape for technology potentially in a good way to the extent that you're that people have been concerned about competition the

A Closer Look at Sundar Pichai: From Middle Class Indian Upbringing to Google's Head Honcho

A Closer Look at Sundar Pichai: From Middle Class Indian Upbringing to Google's Head Honcho

"Google and its parent company alphabet on the precipice of several major challenges regulators are expected to file antitrust lawsuits as early as this month and other example some faith company isn't as innovative as it used to be. A CEO of alphabet sooner Pechanga will play a key role in how the company navigates the headwinds, and while Pichai, is not nearly as in the spotlight as the other tech leaders. He's already had a long history Google, and by taking a look back, we can try and get some clues about how he might move the company forward a reporter Copeland joins us with an inside look rob. Thanks for joining me. Thank you. So, at the tech hearing before the House antitrust subcommittee earlier, this year Pichai himself as an immigrant sort of the picture of the American dream. And wonder if you could start by telling us more about the Chinese upbringing shore so Definitely outlier in many ways in Silicon Valley perhaps the most famous way that he stands out is that he was born in. India. So he grew up middle-class for India but not necessarily add western standards. He famously talks about growing up and getting in his first. Rotary phone. He is in such an older guy that the technology was just a lot less developed there. So he speaks frequently about the connection that he feels to technology and the knowledge that new technology can really change someone's life. So pettah eventually came to the US for Grad School. How do you find his Google? He worked relatively ordinary corp jobs until he joined Google right after its IPO google was not the Google that it is today it really was just a search engine. Quickly impresses people for his ability to one build consensus, which is true to this day, but also get the job done his first major job at Google. toolbar product. So before there was chrome there actually was an add on on your browser to search google. So his job was to convince companies like Dell when they sold you a laptop to have an automatic google search bar on there. So he's moved through the ranks since then becoming CEO of Google and then last year taking over as alphabet. CEO How did he make his way up the ladder? What's so remarkable is he's been at Google for sixteen years and we even though we're the Wall Street Journal have never done a full profile of him. So a big part of my task for the last few months was really unpacking who he is and how he got to this position and what really emerges is that Google was a place and still is a place with big personalities people who scream at each other people who say we should bet the farm on this or that and what sooner sort of did. was stay in the background, but he was also very careful that whatever he did it worked starting with toolbar but that extends to chrome the browser which he co lead and is now by far the most used web browser one of the big reveals of this reporting for me was that he's a very strategic person. It's not an accident that he stayed in the background for instance, someone who used to report to him. Told me early on in a meeting with with Larry? Page. who was CEO of Google before soon Dr Sooner made sure that they never disagreed in front of Larry. He really didn't want anyone to see any cracks and this also emerges in a lot of the people I spoke to some of whom sooner himself suggested that I speak to. But then when I got on the phone with them, they didn't seem to know him personally well. So he he keeps it very close to the vest. So it sounds like he's pretty deft at navigating the company politics now that he's in the top spot. What's he known for as a leader? So to a man to a woman ever and I spoke to said that sooner has a tendency in the middle of meetings to stand up and begin pacing in the middle of your presentation. He won't say anything necessarily sign that he likes or doesn't like it. It's just signed that he's thinking. So you can imagine people have spent weeks preparing for the CEO and he leaps up in the middle just starts pacing it can be quite disarming frankly this comes back to the criticism. Of Soon Dr to standing up in the middle of meeting and pacing as you think is not necessarily your traditional hey drive the car forward leadership. There's a big knock at Google today it's that and this comes from investors analysts even some executives of the company it's that the company is pretty much operating on autopilot. It makes almost all of its money from online advertising and you don't really have to do much besides sit there and the money comes in adding an extra add to youtube isn't exactly a high level. Decision. So the criticism is that sooner hasn't necessarily made the big move to position Google for the next decade on the other hand. When you have such a head start that Google has just not messing up is a billion dollar proposition. And what about as a coworker? What's he known for that? The best thing that's has going for him is that people genuinely like him in fact, one of his deputies Caesar. Gupta told me he loved sooner Pichai. He said the reason I stayed at Google this long as because of Dr He's someone that I trust. He moved to Jakarta because soon are asked him to. People. Say in this world where everyone is obsessed with Silicon Valley with what is happening in Menlo Park and Palo Alto and San Francisco that soon Dr a truly global outlook that he cares for instance, about Google pay in India where there are many multiples number of people using payment products in there are in the US. But tacitus surly had as much investment and one of the really fun things that is in the story is he's very much a creature of habit. You can imagine your CEO of of Alphabet you're traveling the world whenever he's in Korea he goes to the same burrito place an orders, the same Veggie Burrito. And in this world of he's hard-driving CEOS who appear in TMZ or go through high profile divorces. Everyone says that sooner Chai's legitimately just a kind nice guy.

Microsoft Bid for TikTok Rejected

"Microsoft says its bid for Tiktok was rejected by China. they they announced according to Microsoft officials and other people involved in negotiations. The Chinese company Tick Tock rejected Microsoft's offer. Boom. So, Oracle is the last man standing. I should point to a New York Times article from a few days ago tick tock bid highlights Oracle's public embrace of trump. So So I think the the stars are lining up for Larry Ellison's Oracle to own. Tiktok what they would do with it or whether they would be good stewards of it is not an issue obviously for anybody except maybe the. Clay is that they're just going to reject everything because they don't want US company to buy them. Great. Yeah. I mean they announced I think they had hoped the Chinese government announced. that you bite dance the company This morning told the US tick tock rhythm is under no circumstances for sale. So? I think that was probably the hope. That? That would put the Kibosh on the deal. Entirely this is from the South China. Morning Post.

How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled

"How did millions of Americans come to believe that most plastic would be recycled when that's not actually true Laura Sullivan is GonNa take the story from here. Okay, it seemed like a good place to start was the plastic industry they make the stuff. Did they know the truth about recycling plastic? I headed to one of the birthplaces of plastic plastic comes from oil. But really comes from the dupont chemical company and some of the plastic industries old records are housed in the Hagley Library. It's this stone building on the grounds of the first dupont family home in Delaware. This is a place that actually used to store sodium nitrate back when Dupont made gunpowder not plastic. There's an archivist with a bow tie a handlebar moustache named Lucas Clawson, and he looks like someone would make cocktails. Lucas wheeled out a cart of boxes. Thank you. Files that documented the discovery of a chemical marvel that changed the world, a product that looked like glass but break a product that could also look like lightweight fluff but keep things hot called Styrofoam and incredible new film that can preserve food for days called. Saran. Wrap there were a couple of clues about recycling inside the boxes from the industry's most powerful lobby group at the time the Society of the plastics industry their job was to lobby for the big oil and plastic companies. So think Exxon Chevron Dow Dupont. And there's this one memo from one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three, the. Movement is just being born, and one of the top people in the plastics industry is talking about how the cost of sorting plastic is high but it seemed like a lot of the documents were were missing I find reference to a memo a report, but then I noticed that someone had drawn a line through it Lucas. Can I ask you a question absolute. Okay. Why? In this section are all. These APPS. So many of these. Cross out because those records are no longer. Here anymore day or not where did they go the society of the Plastics Industry Astra them back think they really yes is an unusual. That doesn't happen often. Do you do know why they took them. Did they say? I, do not know. Okay Of course, there are all kinds of reasons why an industry lobbying group might want. It's records back I did call society the plastic folks and ask them if I could see the records they took they said No. So I headed to another library this time at Syracuse University and they're buried in its tax, our boxes of files donated from an industry consultant. Actually the industry consultant died in the why found the boxes and gave them to Syracuse and inside these boxes. I found what I was looking for a report was sent to top oil and plastic executives in nineteen seventy three. It says, recycling plastic is nearly impossible. There is no recovery from obsolete products. It says recycling is costly sorting. It is infeasible plus it says plastic degrades every time you try to reuse it. So the oil in plastic industry new, they've known for almost fifty years. and. Then I found more confidential memos in meetings echoed decades of this knowledge insight thousands of pages of courtroom discovery. There's a speech from an industry insider in nineteen seventy four when it comes to recycling large quantities plastic, it says there is quote serious doubt that it can ever be made viable on an economic basis. Now. Okay. Sure. Anyone can take something plastic melted down and make something else. But what these documents are saying is that it's expensive, it's time consuming it's chemically problematic and it's just cheaper and easier to make plastic out of new oil instead of plastic trash there are all kinds of names in these documents men who have never spoken publicly before and there was one name I kept seeing over and over he. was, giving speeches at fancy hotels, hosting conferences and Berlin. Phoenix, they called him a bigwig. He was the industry's top lobbyist. Larry Thomas this is the man I had to find but do you know how many Larry Thomas's there are in the United? States. Thousands I'd call say are you the Larry Thomas used to work in plastics? Are you leery Thomas who used to be president of the Society of the plastics industry? And then finally, I'll prompt Merrin the plastics industry no getting around it the BIGWIG himself I'll walk. Do that's for sure. Yeah. My personal views certainly didn't always job with. US I had the quake as part of my job. That's the way it was there. He's retired now on the coast of Florida but I told him I've been reading all about his exploits in the world of plastic. Where would the offices the officers were? What would you think they would be K. Street yes. Twenty Five K. Street Casey was the heart of lobbying in Washington and it was in those offices at top executives in the world's most powerful oil and plastic companies met they had meeting after meeting about a little problem they were having there was just too much plastic trash consumers didn't like it. In one of the documents I found from nineteen nine, hundred nine Larry wrote the top oil executives at Exxon Chevron, Amoco Dow Dupont proctor, and gamble in a bunch of others he wrote the image of plastics is deteriorating at an alarming rate. We are approaching a point of no return. The classic. I was under fire. We gotta do. What it takes to take the heat off. Because we want to continue to make classic equality, they wanted to keep making plastic but the more you make the more plastic trash you get and the obvious solution to this is to recycle it but they knew they couldn't remember it's expensive. It's a great. Discussion about how difficult it was to recycle. They knew that the infrastructure wasn't there. So really have recycling amount to a whole lot. So they needed a different plan. Larry Decides to call a bunch of meetings at fancy hotels. He summons the Society of the plastics people executives Larry doesn't remember the specifics of each particular meeting but one of his deputies at the time Lou Freeman he remembers you could. Get. Back all the layers of my brain. Lou, remembers a bunch of meetings the basic question on the table was. You guys you're our trade association in the plastics industry aren't doing enough. We need to do more. This one dupont executive was telling Lou. It's your job to fix plastics imaging problem. So what do you need? You said, I think if we had five million dollars. which seemed like a lot of money. If we had five million dollars we could. We could. We could solve this problem. And My boss said in response. If you add five million dollars, you would know how to spend it effectively. Well, they came up with a way to spend five million dollars that and a lot more I. Remember this. This is one of these exchanges that sticks with me thirty five years later however long it's been. Anna was You know what we need to do is advertise our way out of it. That was the idea thrown out. The industry decided to advertise its way out of a can't recycle it problem. The possibilities off plastics plastics. From dense. Touted the benefits of a product that after it was used for the most part was headed to a landfill incinerator or even ocean. Look empty yet it's anything but trash it's full of potential. These commercials carried an environmentalist message, but they were paid for by the oil and plastic companies eventually leading to fifteen million dollars a year industrywide ad campaign promoting plastic. So I asked Larry why why spend tens of millions of dollars telling people to recycle plastic when the new recycling plastic wasn't going to work? and. That's when he said it. The point of the whole thing if the public thinks so recycling is working. Then they're not going to be concerned about the environment and if they're not concerned about the environment. Though keep buying plastic it wasn't just Larry in lieu who said this I spoke to half a dozen top guys involved in the industry at the time who all said plan was unfolding and it went beyond at the industry funded recycling projects and local neighborhoods expensive sorting machines that didn't make any economic sense school recycling contests. All of this was done with great fanfare. except I decided to go track down almost a dozen of the industry's biggest projects like the one where they were going to recycle plastic and national parks or the one that was going to recycle all the plastic and school lunches in New York they all failed and disappeared quietly but there was one more part of this campaign, the final piece that did stick around. That recycling symbol with the numbers in the middle this symbol has. So. Much confusion about what is and is not recyclable in the plan to stamp it on every plastic item popped up a lot in the documents I learned of a quiet campaign to lobby almost forty states to require that every single plastic item have this symbol stamped on it. Even if there was no way to economically recycle it, I should note that some. Environmental is also supported. The symbol thinking would help, separate and sort plastic but the industry knew the truth the symbols were causing problems. Warm report told executives in July nineteen ninety-three that the symbol is being misused. It's creating quote unrealistic expectations about what plastic people can recycle. It's being used as a green marketing tool, but the executives decided to keep the symbol anyway. I did reach out to plastic industry folks and they said that the symbols were only meant to help sort plastic and that they were not intended to confuse people but the symbol in the ads in the projects, all of this basically convince people Larry says the idea that the vast majority of plastic can be recycled was sinking in. Say that. After a while the atmosphere seems to change I. Don't know whether it was because people thought that recycling has solved the problem. was that they were just so in love with plastic products that they were willing to overlook the environmental concerns that were were mounting up. It's been thirty years now since most of those plans have been put into place and the public's feelings about plastic have started to shift again, people are reading stories about oceans choked with plastic trash and trace amounts of this stuff inside our bodies, and once again, people are wanting to ban plastic and the survival of the oil companies is at stake.

"Let's talk about that new iphone the new bells and whistles. It's the camera Larry. I think it's a camera so there's two things that struck me about the new iphone one especially the iphone eleven in pro one is battery life the eleven pro they claimed four hours better than the ten S and five hours better if you get the the the Max extra-large and so if that's true that's great but what really amazed me is when apple showed photographs. It didn't show snapshot from people like me. Were were you know kids taking either vacation or taking snapshots. It showed professional photographers doing amazing things with its camera. When it showed off the video radio feature it hired a cinematographer to work on a Hollywood back lot working with a producer director and professional actors to show something that would look good. I suspect back in a movie theater and it really struck me and I've been true for a while but it really hit me how these cameras aren't just replacing point and shoot cameras but replacing replacing high end cameras I mean I haven't used a camera of a dedicated camera in a couple of years now and if this iphone is as good as it looks you could throw away your basic beyond the camera capabilities not a lot of major changes in the eleven pro. No I don't think so you know the usual faster after chips and better glass. It's less likely to break and better waterproofing things of that nature so I would say the takeaways on on both of the phones are the cameras even by the way the less expensive camera which starts at six ninety nine which by apple standard to the bargain. That's actually a cheap laugh year. They're cheapest phone with seven fifty. Even that at phone has two cameras instead of three and the pro and looks pretty good from the demo that I saw..

"Larry this involves their packaging it does and it involves packaging by most manufacturers whose products they sell and their affiliates vendors who work with them so sometimes sometimes you order something from Amazon but it's actually shipped by someone else and what they're going to do with called a charge back. It's really a fine but they're calling it a charge back starting September third. If if a manufacturer uses packages that are either too large and or too hard to open. They're going to get this fine and the purpose to both make things left. Frustrating for people like you and me when we open packages and environmentally these large boxes take more resources to create more resources to recycle Michael Marie Thrift store take up a lot of space it increases shipping costs you name it fill from an environmental and I would presume economic standpoint the smaller the better. I bet they hear a lot of complaints from people about how difficult it is to open some of those packages because I swear sometimes you need a set of tools used to do that. The term wrap rage when I have literally no I didn't. I wish I wish I had but the other day I bought something and it was in coast cased in plastic and I didn't have a physics. We've had had to go get somebody without in about and they had to go find somebody with thirds like it opened this package. It drove me nuts so making things easier to open. It's important especially for people like me who review products they get a lot of things in and I have to open them up and then I test them out and I send him back and it's a pain but you know forget about me everybody. She has a problem and also I was thinking about this. I was driving by five the other day back from L._A.. And I came across like four or five Amazon trucks on the way and it occurred to be this company I need it. well-named Amazon is so huge and I can't help but thinking that must be having a huge impact on the on the carton industry and so many other aspects. Aspects of our lives and the amount of cardboard they use must be massive Larry. Am I correct in in deducing from this that they had encouraged their vendors to do this earlier this year and now they're just getting serious. It's not a brand new initiative. It's not a brand new initiative in fact originally they were going to start the deadline was going to be August. I extending it to September third know. They've been working on this for a while. In fact they call it the frustration free package packaging vendor initiative initiative program. That's one aspect of it and the other one about the larger packages much of what they call that but they've been working on that too and I think I'm happy in both cases. I just have smaller packages in easier to open..

Oh can I opt out of that. If I read all that fine print yeah you can opt out or we could certainly opt out of activating it with voice and you could make it so you have to push something to activate theory or Amazon or Google. That's one way to do it. I don't know if you can opt out of the transcriptions. That's a really good question. I don't believe you can but I'd have to research that a little deeply deeply..

"How's it going to do that? Larry. Well, it's to use artificial intelligence and machine language to look at what you've drafted and suggest different ways of phrasing. It perhaps making your fitness with more concise or more clear of what he redone to things that a good copy editor presumably would do. Now. I have not tried it. Obviously if a writer, I'm interested in making my writer writing better, I'm sure anybody's writing could be improved. But I'm also a little bit skeptical about whether it's going to really be right. All of the time. For example, in words, existing grammar-checker at often make suggestions that I reject because I actually prefer the way I phrased it to the way it suggested nevertheless, never had to have an extra pair of eyes. Although this case, maybe lenses would be a better word than I. But somebody to look over your shoulder don's will be that. There's a certain parallel to the introduction of a calculator. Stay with me for a second here. When when when kids I had access to calculators some in the school system, we're saying the level in any math anymore. You can. Could make the argument that if a I is going to write papers kits bolt. Learn writing skills, but I think you could make a counterargument on that as well. I agree. And in fact, for me, the calculator allowed to be much more sophisticated math than I would've ever tried. So I think that would be the argument if it can make you a better writer and allow you to try things that you might not have tried the other thing that it's going to do which I think is perhaps as interesting, you're more interesting is summarized documents for you. So that you could import a document that someone else had written, and it would give you a summary and extract the key points and inundated as we all are with material these days that could be helpful. If it actually does a good job really dealing with the entire article and giving you a good summation. But when you guys were talking about this. I went into mom mode because I think of the homework implications and running assignments in middle school and high school and how that might affect that. Well, that is a good question. It sort of extension of what Jeff with talking about with. If somebody is not a good writer yet, they can produce good papers. If that masking in. Inability and maybe getting them through and if they're ever in a position when they really have to write on their own. They wouldn't have the tools having fed that when's the last time you were forced to do a complicated mathematical formula on your own you, just turn to the to the calculator. So it may be the same thing. Maybe we don't have the native skills, but still get the job done..

"Larry tell us more about this. They have contractor that employees around the world thousand of them whose job it is to listen to what people say to Alexa, transcribe it and compare what they fed to what Alexa thought they fed. So the reason why they do this purportedly is to improve speech recognition the only way for machine learning to work at the end of the day is to have it compared with human learning. That's what artificial intelligence about you train, the artificial intelligence with human intelligence. So it makes them fence on the other hand. I don't think that most people know that when they face something to Alexa. There are people, and they could be in Boise, Idaho, or San Francisco or India or China wherever they happen to be working, maybe listening and transcribing, and there's some real privacy implications. And that would I'm on says that these people don't know who you are. They just have a number of socio with you don't have your name. But nevertheless, some people say I'm very intimate things. Maybe not necessarily to Alexa. But perhaps thing. It elects listening to in fact, I hate to tell you, but having used that word several times anybody in the audience be careful because I may have activated your speakers, and what you say could mean record right now because I use that magic word. So these are hot devices. If you will is Alexa, always listening. As information always available to these employees or only when you say Alexis name, and and sort of do that Simon says. Theory in theory. Jeff, it's only when you say the word, Alexa, or whatever the up where it is. I think they're optional Vic Edwards, but the problem is that I have had my echo respond to me. Even when I haven't said that we're w sitting in the kitchen having dinner with my wife, and we haven't conversation. Suddenly, she'll say, I don't understand or you know, she'll say something, which means she thought one of cetera trigger words. So it is possible. Look, it's just a device it could be triggered in different ways. So it's something to be concerned about I'm not going to get rid of my echoes. I love them. And you know, I eat them all the time. I I can't even turn my bedroom light out without one. So but on the other hand, I'm going to be a little more nervous. I guess they're aware that it could be listening or people could be listening..

"Cybersecurity experts are issuing a warning about some hotel booking websites. Larry, this is pretty sobering. It is hotel booking sites have been hacked a numerous time than when they are hacked. There is the risk of data being leaked. But the other thing if apparently some of these hotels, actually, not apparently, I know this fact, some of the hotel sights will send confirmation emails to customers and those two could be compromised. So if they put information in the Email or a put a link in the Email, there have been cases where it's given. Your passport information other personal information your address, the core as well as when and where you're traveling all of which should be confidential unless you choose to share it Larry my question to you. We we do these data breach stories it seems like a lot. And my question is is what's going on in the hotel industry? Is it less secure? Is it your sense that there that that there just isn't enough security on those sites? Well, definitely there isn't enough security on the fights. I don't know what it is about the hotel industry specifically. That would make it more vulnerable. And I suspect if it's probably true in a lot of different sites. But the hotel industry is one of the industries that has to collect a lot of personal information in order to make a hotel reservation you have to give up some information. So there's more vulnerability, but you know, we've had breach of financial websites other travel websites just about anything. But you know, hotels are little, you know, it's interesting when I the story I was thinking I wonder is it safer to do your booking over the phone. And yet clearly even to do this over the phone, you're gonna get an Email with the receipt and some information on that, you know, at the end of the day, I'm not gonna stop making my hotel reservations online, I know that I'm taking a risk. But no matter what you do your taking your risk getting life with right need. You talk about the possibility of having your money stolen from an online source while your money could be stolen by somebody lifting your wallet. If once happened to me, so, you know, life had risks, and I'm not trying to downplay it, and I'm not trying to get any into three off the hook. But I am going to say that to convenience. In my personal opinion way out outweighs the risk. So my question to you. When consumers we all hear these different data breach stories. I wonder now there's so many of how to react, right? I think we're numb to that. And that's not good. We should react by insisting for better services. Maybe insisting on legislation and regulations that require if higher level of security, but often when we keep hearing these stories over and over again, which just getting onto them.

"Larry tell us more about the conversation. Well, first of all, I it was part of the safety advisory board. Normally the thing they're under confidential. But I think I can talk about this. Because most of what we talked about with really public information. And I think reading between the lines it's a work in progress, and they're trying to kind of figure things out. But bottom line is the Facebook as we know it is not going to change dramatically. It will still be Facebook. If you wanna post to a wide circle of friends or even to the general public. I'm pretty sure that's going to continue to be available. However, they're going to emphasize some of their other products, and they already have for example, if you think about what fat that is already an encrypted messaging app that they bought and had been running for a number of years right for well. So they're going to kind of combine some of those features with Instagram some of those featured with Facebook, but at the end of the day, offer, private and semi private messaging opportunity. So that you can have a one on one with somebody. You can be in a small group. And those messages will be encrypted which. Means no one not Facebook. Not the police not creepy people in down the street, not the Russians. No, one can see them if they're encrypted. So that doesn't mean everything on Facebook will be encrypted. But there will be products with encrypted messages that are available. They move forward. The receive to say that this is more than just Facebook being magnanimous or taking care of its users. I mean, they really are running the risk of losing a lot of users if they don't get on top of this. Yeah. I think that this is a combination of responding to pressure doing the right thing. I don't want us to, you know, take away any credit, but also understanding how the market's changed when Facebook first came around it with competing with my space, and it was all about public sharing or quasi-public. Sharing of information. Social networking now messaging is really big. And if you look at Snapchat, I with at their offices in Santa Monica last week, they really promote the fact that most snaps most communications are one to one or maybe small group of friends. They're not into big publishing, and I think that's where the market is moving and Facebook. Responding. And so it part of it is just a way to sort of stay relevant. But they are also responding to all of the privacy concerns that people have been raising about them..

"Google is tweaking its map to make it easier for pedestrians to find their destinations Larry west Google doing sorry about that. Larry here, we go three are ago what they're doing. They're Eddie, you think augmented reality to superimpose digital images of buildings and other area around you with direction. So for example, I have often had the where I'm using Google maps in a car. It's a problem if you're going in the wrong direction, you're going to quickly figure that out because you're going pretty fast. But if you're walking in the wrong direction, it may take you a block or so before you realize that you're getting further for your destination. And I find it frustrating. So with this you'll actually there if the building where I turn right, and there's an arrow telling me to turn right or telling me to go this way, or that way, and you can actually orient yourselves to things around you building signed thing that nature much easier than using the current version of maps to get around by walking. This seems like a natural use of augmented reality it does. Because again, augmented reality the imposition of computer, generated image. With over the real world. So you're walking down the street. That's an example that Google youth is on the photograph. That's on scene it and you see a building. Okay. I pass to building. And then I go block or to turn left turn, right, whatever. And the hardest thing again with Google maps. And walking is always knowing which way to turn you walk out of the building you go to the left you go to the right. It's really hard to tell with the current version. You know, it's interesting you say that because I use Google maps all the time and the only time I've really gotten turned around as they're walking directions. Yes, I've really just been walking in circles and a couple of very notable incidence exactly that experience, of course in a car. You know, I've I've been in situations where I've gone out of a parking lot. And it was unclear from Google maps with to turn left or right. That happens all the time. But again when you go block or two you'll quickly see you're going the wrong directions. In fact, you'll recalculate once you're on the street and tell you what to do where it might not do that in a parking lot. But with walking that could be a long walk before you figure that out there are other time, but real quickly. This is being sent out essentially. Testers point not broad. Yeah. Exactly.

"Larry, what were some of your takeaways from today's proceeding? Well, the first one with it, they were a bit contrived. I think at the beginning, at least as Sheryl Sandberg did acknowledge that they messed up that they were behind the curve and two thousand sixteen fit that they've done a lot of work to make it better in two thousand eighteen, but also indicated that they still have work to do and Dorothy pretty much said the fame on the Russian interference angle. They also dealt with broader issue if harassment and bullying. And of course the accusations that they are discriminating against conservative accusations, which by the way they both deny and have not been proven Larry page the CEO of Google, specifically, Google parent company alphabet was a no show. What's the thinking there? Do you think? You know, I don't know. He's got a private jet, I assume. So I don't know. It wouldn't be that hard to get there. But bottom line is that they would not provide either him or another senior executive. I think they offered within their Washington legal staff and the Senate in. Congressman? No, we want the boss or one of the bosses. I think it was a mistake for them not to be there, but I can't, you know exactly know what they're thinking with. Larry. GMC the government getting more involved with these social media saying companies. I know I'm asking you to read the tea leaves, but I'm not what's your got? Yeah, my gut is it's not a question of whether there's regulation, but what that regulation, if and when it comes. And I think the important thing is that they figure out a way to regulate in ways that don't stifle innovation, but yet offer transparency in advertising and maybe get better census to not the actual algorithms, but what the algorithm they're doing, sort of a broader look at at the auguries better transparency. I think that that's likely to happen over the next couple of years three. How politically charged is this at this point in time in Washington crossing across party lines, for example, it is crossing across party lines in that both parties have expressed some. Upset about the the Russian interference. Both parties have expressed upset about the harassment and and other abuse both have talked about potential need to regulate or at least recognize either very important influential companies, but only the Republican side seems to be crying conspiracy or or you know, discrimination, at least if point, although there have been allegations from the left of that as well. But right now seems to be coming from the president and his allies. A sports fans football season's here,.

"Larry is at the internet governance forum in geneva where he attended a session on block chain technologies earlier today we asked him about block chain and why it's something internet policy experts would be concerned about glock chain of the term that many people are not familiar with but i think most people are familiar with bitcoin which if that cryptocurrency that being used around the world blocked chain is sort of the underlying technology that makes bitcoin work it finchley an online ledger or database that can record trend faction and in the case of bitcoin their financial transactions but it can record other types of transactions as well and in fact can be used to essentially create something of a fiber contract and agreement between parties that can be then monitored and theoretically even enforced by the party themselves or by government so technology where you can essentially right things down but rather than being on some central server it can be distributed in a pierre type officiation and it can be anonymous but even though it may be anonymous party that agree to block chain transactions can be held accountable flurry this almost sounds like a contradiction in terms so something can be crypto or anonymous but at the same time accountable as possible that's because the way bill chain work that records a hash or a code similar to other types of crypt 'hogra fee and you can compare it so for example you and i can agree to a contract i might not need know who you are but if you're hash code and my hash code agreed that their the relationship there we can establish of that relationship exists even though somebody to broke into that database and found the those codes they would have no idea who is associated with hash is.
