"And you've obviously developed from there. So talk us through the journey of the X one fold. Yeah, so it's really obviously the screen is the most important element of a folding device. And this screen technology had been in development for quite some time. And we wanted to take that and turn it into a full blown, powerful windows, enterprise class device. And we wanted to do it in a way where customers weren't worried about it being fragile, about once you open and close it more than 20 times, you've got a line across the screen. Yeah, we wanted to prove that we could do it. So the first generation we did exactly that, we used very high-tech manufacturing techniques. We learned an awful lot from the manufacturing of the first generation. We use graphene graphite in construction and carbon fiber. So when it came out, it was a bit of a flag waving exercise in engineering prowess really. It was like look what we can do isn't it amazing. Now, the first generation went to a quite a few customers went to a lot of customers and they liked it, but we got a list back of like, oh, could you make the keyboard a bit bigger? I like my Lenovo keyboard. I'd like it exactly like that and my ThinkPad keyboard. Could you make it more powerful? Could you do this? Could you do that? And so we took all that on board and we put it into the generation two. Now I've actually been using one for a while. So I sent one of the early value units. And it is stunning because when you fold it up, it's smaller than our smallest for enterprise laptop. But when you open it up, the screen is bigger than our biggest 16. 16.3 inch display oled is absolutely stunning, but it folds into book size. It's really quite amazing. I've got to say, I've been watching this development and this rush from a lot of companies to develop folding phones. And I don't really know where the market sits on that one.

"What can what can people do because they can stop the update? Yeah, you can. You can go into settings and I believe it's the apps settings and make sure automatically update apps is turned off. That way it will show in your, in my account in the App Store, it will show the update there, but you actually need to tap on update to make it happen. So that's what we should always do is make sure that automatic updates in the app settings on your iPhone is turned off just for this exact reason. Okay, let's get another voicemail from pierce. Good morning. My name's piers from Berlin Ontario. In reference to yesterday's show about audio description. I have another complaint about all you description is that the television commercials are sometimes totally unintelligible to people with vision impairment because it's just music or it's just people talking, but no, identification of the product. I think it's a disservice to a visually impaired people that are ignored. There are a few television commercials that do have audio description, but they're very few and far between. I think I'm not enough is said about this. I know even I had asked questions about to my family about some commercials and some of them were you going to Apple commercials and with an Apple watch commercial, but unless somebody told me who it was for, I would never have any idea. Maybe you guys can have a discussion about this or I don't know what the commercial situation is in England, but in Canada and the United States, there's a lot of stuff that's advertised on TV with no clue as to what they're selling. I think it should be better. Thanks again. Goodbye. Thank you so much for your comments, Pearce. And we look forward to having that discussion. We will continue that on the next episode with you and me, Sean, because that's going to be really interesting discussion. I've got a lot to see on that. But we'll save that for another day because we're going to continue Lenovo has announced a whole suite of new products actually Rolf joins me next, Sean is heading off, but he'll be back, you'll be back on Monday with me. Correct. You can't get rid of me for long. I know and I do try. But listen, even try breaking your mix and desk remotely, that didn't work. You're still here. Listen, I have a great weekend. We'll catch you next week. And everyone else stick around. We've actually rolled from Lenovo next. Send us your feedback to feedback at AMI dot CA. Leave us a voicemail at one 8 7 7 8 O three four 5 6 7. Your listening to double top. This is double tap.

"Somebody who imagine, for example, you with Iraq, we're talking about you taking a trip somewhere. Imagine that your glasses or something and have a camera on it. So you didn't have to hold your phone up and look weird walking through Manhattan trying to get places if someone could be talking you through it and they could see what you're seeing. That's kind of that seems like a revolution almost, right? That's kind of what we were talking about yesterday with junior Stanley, right? So she was talking from Ira about the envisioned glasses, which we've talked about, which is essentially the Google glass. That is Google glass. Being used with this company basically bringing it on building an application around it to benefit blind people. And that is exactly. And my only question is, I'm hoping to have these glasses in a couple of days time. So I can try them for myself. But, you know, I can't really understand what it must be like with in these. Because by all kinds, they don't have any frames in them. You'll know more than me on this, but I don't think I have a set. I have a pair of Google glass upstairs. Because I bought it. I bought Google glass. The experience was, it was a weird one. As you said, what I did though, because at that point I was wearing glasses. I bought the prescription add on. It actually looked like a pair of glasses quite honestly, a nice pair of glasses, but had that little piece of glass over the top right hand corner of your eye. And had all the controls there. What I did some tests with it. And I remember doing remember walking my dog in the winter, complete fail. The camera was bad quality. You have to really look up to the right corner to really see anything in terms of what's going on there. The speakers were bad. It was bone conduction, I think it was. But I have it so I'm curious to see how envision have taken advantage of that. Have they used some kind of Google operating system here and just built an app on it? Or does it really take it over the entire, the entirety of the device? And made it their own. That's where I'm curious. You know what I'm going to do. I'm going to send you what I have. I'm going to send you to Google glass that I have. So you can compare native Google glass to what they're doing. Because I'm curious how that's going to have that's going to pan out. Because my understanding is this, the app is inside the glasses of the glasses are taken over to some degree. I mean, everything is controlled. Essentially, you're buying envision on Google glass rather than Google glass within vision on it. If that makes sense. So yeah, that's interesting. Look, stick around, because Lenovo, we've only touched on one product. We're not doing very well. But we've managed to get one product done, which is actually very interesting, nonetheless. But there are others that have been on show at IFE in Berlin. We'll talk about that in just a moment to stay there. Listen daily from noon eastern on AMI audio, or search for double tap in your favorite app. We'll be right back.

"Apparently they are focusing more on smart things as the brand to showcase. While they're out there, I think the Internet of Things is really what people are most interested in at the moment. So I think this is a little bit like mobile world Congress, just a little bit like that. But yeah, Lenovo there, they have showcasing lots of new products. Yes, you need to be loads, dropping over the past couple of days. The one that really stood out, I think, for a lot of people, are the glasses that they've brought out. I think it's P 11, you can tell me for sure, but I think it was the P one or the P 11. These are the new glasses from Lenovo that no, you might remember on double tap TV a while back. We talked to TCL. About the next we have G and these are very similar to this, basically you have a headset that you wear that connects by a wire to your no and TCL's next to a G case it was a USB connection. So you had to plug it into something with a USB-C connection. But as these do have adapters to plug them into iPhones as well. So you could hook this up to your iPhone and it's just another display, right? It's just the other way to assume the same media. I don't mind that guy. This has definitely a use case, right? It has a use case for private private watching. If you're in bed, if you're traveling, definitely on planes and commuting. You're probably miss your stop if you do it. The T ones, not the ones. Exactly. So the T one Lenovo glasses, just literally dubbing it as a wearable private display for on the go content consumption. There are sexy looking they're looking like a nice kind of oval pair of glasses. They're dark out so from the outside they look like a Paris on glasses. They've got a little bit of a thicker arms on both sides, but nothing crazy. Almost like the Bose frames. Oh, that makes sense. Yes, they do have some speakers. A question for you. I don't know if there are any images of intrigued to know this. Of people wearing them, because I remember the TCL glasses really came off your face. They kind of sat on your nose and they came out a good bit from your face. They didn't feel they looked apparently ridiculous when you wore them. How do these look? Can you tell? Pretty ridiculous. They do look pretty ridiculous. There is an image of a woman, actually, it looks like she's almost intentionally wearing them a little bit further away from her face. It's kind of like this quarter angle of her, and you can clearly see the edit of her eyes so she's pretty far away from the actual glasses themselves. This is where these fail, right? Because unless you're in a dark environment, all this light is being let in so they don't really work well. And here's another image of another guy wearing it. At least I don't see his eye in the picture. But it's definitely far away from his face, and they're not curved to the head, right? They're kind of flat and straight. And the other thing is there's a couple images of people holding the glasses up to light. You can actually see through the bottom part of the display. You're almost like you have to look up to see the display, and you can still see through the glasses. I get the utility of that because you can see your environment around you.

"In addition to the models listed in the advisory, several other devices we reported to Lenovo are also affected, but won't be fixed due to them reaching end of development support. This includes devices where we spotted reported vulnerabilities for the first time IdeaPad three 30 and IdeaPad one ten. The list of such EODs devices that we have been able to identify will be available in ESET's vulnerability disclosures repository. And what this tells us reading between the lines is that these vulnerabilities have been there long enough for those machines which they started affecting to now have left have gone out of their service life with Lenovo, thus they will never be fixed. Lenovo, oh yeah, I do have in the notes. Lenovo confirmed the vulnerabilities on November 17th, 2021, and assigned them the following CVEs. And they're coming right out with it. CVE ending in 37 90, Lenovo variable SMM, and they say hyphen, SMM, arbitrary read, write. The one ending in 39 71 secure backdoor disable SPI flash protections and 39 72 change boot DXE hook disable UEFI secure boot. So given how incredibly active, the cyber underworld is today. We keep encountering quite sobering evidence of it, you know, in every podcast now, there's just no chance that these now fully disclosed and very well documented vulnerabilities will not be used to compromise the interests of some of these millions of Lenovo laptop users worldwide and many of them are going to be serious users. It will happen. So here we are once more noting that there's something very wrong with our industry's current development model. How can this be allowed to occur over and over and over? He set had to reverse engineer the proprietary code in this UEFI firmware in order to find these problems that and its affecting lord knows what multiple of millions of.

"So welcome to the unified extensible firmware interface where malware is also able to extend the firmware. Lenovo has been most recently in the we made a UFI mistake news recently. Last week, the guys over at ESET, whose motto is we live security, posted the results of their analysis of some widely used Lenovo UEFI firmware. Their postings title was quote when secure isn't secure at all. High impact UEFI vulnerabilities discovered in Lenovo consumer laptops. And the stories tagline is ESET researchers discover multiple vulnerabilities in various Lenovo laptop models that allow an attacker with admin privileges to expose the user to firmware level malware. Okay, firmware, level malware. That's not what you want to hear. That's even less what you want to have crawling around inside your machine. Firmware level malware enables the ultimate in rootkit techniques. In fact, having its own worst name, boot kit. The presence of firmware level malware means quite simply that it's impossible to trust anything about what the machine might do. Firmware level malware is able to infect and compromise the operating system's own code during its boot process before it has had any opportunity to raise its own shields. And reformatting the machine's mass storage and reinstalling and operating system, or even removing and replacing a drive. Won't necessarily eliminate the problem, because this malware has taken up residence in the machines underlying firmware on the motherboard on a non volatile memory soldered to the main board. Now, we know that anybody can make a mistake and I am as our listeners know, I am infinitely forgiving of mistakes. But the most troubling aspect of what the ESET researchers found was that two of the three big mistakes Lenovo made were the oversight of leaving highly exploitable drivers in the UEFI firmware image which should have only been present during the firmware's development. These drivers should have never left the factory. So it's not like they got a loop condition wrong or something like a mistake. They've left stuff in there that should not be in there. How do we know? We know, because the two drivers were actually named secure back door. That's in the UEFI firmware. That's the driver's name. Yeah, we're going to talk about an oxymoron secure back door. Yeah. Yeah. Turns out it wasn't. The other one was secure backdoor PEI M so here's what ESET said. They said, ESET researchers have discovered and analyzed three vulnerabilities affecting various Lenovo consumer laptop models, various. Yeah, we'll get to that in a minute. The first two of these vulnerabilities, and we got two CVEs from this year, 39, 71 and 72. Affect UEFI firmware drivers originally meant to be used. This is ESET only during the manufacturing process of Lenovo consumer notebooks. Unfortunately, writes he said, they were mistakenly included also in the production firmware images without being properly deactivated slash or deleted..

"But again, even so, does a three year old vulnerability, even maybe if someone in Bangladesh had their Android phone compromised as a result of using an even older version of WhatsApp, does it need to be taking up cognitive space insists catalog? I think it's an open question. Three or four years is a long time not to have updated software. It's clear that there's a very long tail on many of these vulnerabilities. We talked last year and the year before about critical flaws in a TCP stack, being widely used by $5 Internet of Things, light switches and plugs. None of those things are ever going to be updated. So they will be latently vulnerable as long as they're in service. But that isn't what sisa is targeting. I don't have an answer. Light switches and plugs can not be updated. But for federal agencies to never update in use software for which updates are ready and waiting is unconscionable. So I'm glad there's a mandate. I hope it has some teeth behind it. But as I was thinking through this, I thought, you know, maybe have these things expire after a year, but get agencies like force them somehow not to be more than a year out of date. And they shouldn't be more than, in some cases, a few days out of date. The rate at which we're now seeing patched vulnerabilities leveraged into exploits has accelerated dramatically in the last couple of years and we're going to be touching on that shortly. Lenovo, Leo, I heard you refer to Lenovo's UEFI problems on some podcast recently. This has been in the news a lot. It's not surprising. I'm aware of it because I buy a lot of Lenovo. That's been the ThinkPad, right? Yes. The premier laptop. So as we know, when a PC is powered up, something needs to wake up and configure the various parts of the machine. The video needs to be started. The fans need to spin up all of the machines, various mass storage subsystems need to be initialized. And then the firmware is configuration needs to be checked. The proper operating system needs to be located, and it's OS boot code needs to be initially.

"This is double tap Canada. Now back to the show. It has to be done. It doesn't. Well, you know what? I should be less excited because I'm just a bit of a time during the break there setting up finally the Lenovo smart clock to it does not have any accessibility features bar one so no screen readers are not taught back. It does have zoom in it interestingly. Although that's not classed as an accessibility feature, or at least, there's no settings for it. You just double tap on the screen with one finger, and it will zoom into the text on screen for you and you just use that finger to navigate around the whole screen and bring it closer to you. So that's the only kind of accessibility feature that seems to be in there. The other is a noise to indicate that it has started to listen to you. So when you see the hello to G lady or G man you know, build up and thing, then what do you call it? What's that what? To stop this. But yeah, basically when you see the wards, invocations, I would call it invocation. When you see that we watch basically, you get a little Bing, you can tell that one and you can get one which will tell you when it stop listening as well. So that's still an accessibility feature basically telling you for listening or not. But there's no torqueback in there, so. Well, so far. I mean, there's no accessibility options under that device in the app. But maybe there may be something in on device, maybe you need sighted assistance, but it's not looking good. It's not looking good at me because it's not actually built into the device itself. The only options seem to exist on the app, at least I can understand. And of course, I can't really see what's going on on that screen well enough to know. It does have reasonably large text on it. I'll send it back. I'll give it a clock. A clock, you can't see perfect it's my favorite kind of clog. There's also gets the time right. I'm not really too fast. It'd be nice if it may have seen that I could just say, okay, Google time. Yeah, it doesn't work. Live demos. I think I just unplug it in fair to say that's probably why. So I talked about wearables and we're talking about how the watch you really could frankly have lots and lots of wonderful features to it, but we just don't really know what they are because we don't spend enough time with it, frankly, and sometimes it feels like well I could just grab my phone and do this anyway. But we are seeing apps come along and microprocessing example of where is going, where that does seem a bit more useful in some ways. So that's cool. But I think in 22, we're going to see I'm predicting it here. I think we're going to see Apple glass finally arrive. And I don't know what it's going to look like. I don't know what it's going to be in terms of function because I don't think it'll have a camera in it. It may have LIDAR, terrible idea of the camera in it. It's not going to because privacy concerns people are too obsessed with privacy concerns, rightly so. Wrongly so. No, no, I think if you've got small kids and you're worried about people walking down the street, taking pictures of them, and you're wrong. Well, arguably don't buy reban smart glasses. Then that's a concern. I think people are going to have the argument until the end of time, frankly around that, but it would be good for us, frankly, and I think about using Ira and not having told my phone up. Exactly right. All the time, no matter what, as soon as you step out of the privacy of your own home, you just assume that everyone's watching you and everyone's filming you. I don't think there's anything wrong with that to be honest. Obviously don't. And I don't. No, it isn't. Not everyone's a dangerous or whatever filming you for, whatever. Photography in public isn't a crime, I believe some people say. I'm playing with that. Once you follow that with your honor, I think you're fine. Look, I just think it would make such a difference for us, you know, like say Ira be my eyes, anything like that. It would be a game changer and LIDAR just isn't enough. No, I agree. I think lighter will help in a lot of ways and I think we're getting to a point where AI is going to be the driver here. AR is where it's all going as an augmented reality. And I think that will flip, not just to something that people can see also how it can interact. And I think mixing AI with ER is going to be a really interesting game changer for us. And we're seeing some products coming out. Especially next year, and I really encourage you to watch some of the upcoming episodes of double tap TV because we are getting right into some of this some really clever stuff coming. We're talking about here on the show as well, but it's a really, really exciting time for tech. And I think for blind people, especially that fusion of AR and AI is going to be really, really cool. And I hope apple and I don't hope I know apple will be all over this. And I think people are waiting for that to drop because that is, frankly, when people will start paying attention to the smart glasses concept or not, I don't know. I can't really imagine an Apple product that's very color completely collapsed in field. There's been a couple I mean when it comes to smoking on iTunes that was terrible. Oh, it was. The music social network. You've just got to look at Google glass, right? I mean. That didn't work because of course. It didn't work because it cost, and I think it was way too early in its development. Oh, I'm sorry. Are apple's glass is going to be dirt cheap? Are they going to be a bargain? They are talking about what 500 quid, $500. It's going to be the kind of price the ranging. Well, this is what the bill is saying. Who knows? But I think if that's the case, then it's got a show. I think 500 quid to a lot of people there's a lot of money and it is a lot of money. But how much does a phone cost more than that? That was true, but it's all down to the use case, right? What are they going to be able to do? And especially for us, you know, because the whole thing about glass is superimposing AR superimposing digital information over the real world, which is just futuristic and cool and really useful, but for us, we don't care about that. So for us it's more about analyzing the world around us and presenting to us through audio. So I just don't know. I don't know, the Apple watch just keeps bringing to mind, right? Everyone wanted the smartwatch. We were waiting and waiting for Apple to release that. And when they did, it was, oh, this is so cool. And there's even now all these years later, we're saying, I don't actually know why I like it because what am I using it for apart from telling the time? It's too interesting. We were at a point in our life where everything came out and it was started to become accessible and we were all really excited about it. It was almost like we felt bad if we weren't excited by it. And I think that's a really good place for blind people to be going into 2022 with because you're not a point where it's actually okay to not be excited by a piece of tech. That means that we're just average consumers in that case. Yeah. That's a good point. And I'm really pleased that we're there. We could talk so much more about this because so much I think about what's going to be with Apple glass and what it will become and really excited to get into all that. Lots of exciting conversations going to be a next year's shows do stick around keep of course subscribed to our feed oil on the podcast, keep checking out here on here my audio, and of course, double tap TV as well all the details on all of that coming up here in just a second. From me though and Shan priest, thank you for joining us this year. We'll be back in 2022, Sean have a happy new year and a cups. And you. Thanks for listening and keep your feedback coming.

"Mocking around with this little smart clock and I've started the setup process. One thing about Google, they're set up process through that Google Home app for devices like this is just incredible super accessible. I just downloaded the idea and you have the Google Home app installed I thought I did. I downloaded the app easily. Got in immediately found the novel smart clock. It started setting up, went through the process. What's interesting is, does it have accessibility on it? I imagine it will, of course it will. Well, maybe I hope but we'll find out. Hopefully we'll find out by the end of the show. It's doing the update right now. There's 8 such a cliff ago. This is amazing. What if we don't get the answer by the end of this? How does that work? We don't stop until it starts speaking. Right, so we just stay on air. Yeah, sorry AMI. We're not going anywhere. Something's happening. It's just a flashing at me, but all that's doing. Maybe you'll come to life in a moment. But yeah, we'll see. Next break, we'll check in and then we'll come back and let you know how it goes. I wanted to talk about new app that has come to light, which is not an app built for blind people, but I think we'll have a massive benefit to the blind community. Massive, that strong weird, sir. Well, you know, I think sometimes an app comes along. And you kind of think to yourself, is this one of those apps that are going to make a difference is going to change the use of technology for us? Because I think when it comes to the Apple watch is a brilliant piece of tech. But I still struggle to know what to do with it half the time. Totally agree. I mean, to me, you're very expensive talking watch. That's really what I use it for. You know, occasional notifications, maybe answering node calls, reply to just bought another one. When I bought it, I'm like, why did I even bother? There was nothing wrong with the one I had. I meant the Lenovo, but yes. But yeah, this is quite cool. So what I'm intrigued to tell you about today is this new app is called micro browser. Now, this is difficult because it's called micro browser, but it's not actually but I don't know how it's spelled or what new manual more about this than I do. It's like an upside down each. Yeah, it's that funny symbol, isn't it? It's a symbol browser, but if you just search your oh. Hello. If you just search the App Store or who would be surprised to know, I'm getting deliveries through the day. If you just search the App Store for Apple watch browser, for me, at least it was the first result there, and it simply voice-over announced it as browser. I said microwave when I tried to download it. Oh, really? Oh, mine just said browser, but when I went through either character by character, then it said micro browser. So it's a strange one, but you'll find it. It was not a free app. There was a cost to it. I think it was a dollar or something like that. Not very much. What's cool, I think about all this is that because I have to say, the idea of browsing on a full on a watch is I mean, I remember this we used to laugh about browsing on a phone, right? It was ridiculous. Who's going to want to go on the Internet on a tiny screen? No, that's basically how we live our lives. Well, with this microbe browser app, basically it's putting the web on your wrist. Now it is not. I don't know what it looks like visually, because I always have my screen turned off. So I don't have a clue what it looks like visually. But from a voice over prospect of once you're in there, you can do a couple of things. Basically, it has got its own the app you download onto the phone allows you to control and add websites that you might want to frequently visit on the watch, and that's pretty cool. So if you have specific sites that you'd like to go to, maybe it's a news site or maybe it's a MI dossier, for example, you want to go there and listen to our show, then you can put that into the app. And that is then available on your watch. A lot of everything's just going to be paying all the way through. It's just pinging. Right. Okay. This is a Lenovo clock. It will eventually get somewhere. But yeah, basically when you put the EMI dot CA, for example, into the phone, that will then appear as an option on your watch. But you basically bookmarks, isn't it? But marks on the companion app and they show up on your bike. You can now use that and you keyboard. And I think this is maybe what's driven the developers to create this is you now have that on screen keyboard on the watch. Now it's not that bad even with me having the fat finger syndrome. It's actually not that bad to type on, but the most interesting thing is, when that keyboard showed up, something happened that I had never seen before, and that is on my phone and if you've got the Apple TV you've seen this before where you go into a search field or a text field or a password field, it will automatically maybe make your phone vibrate and it will say use your keyboard on your iPhone to enter text on that device in this case the Apple TV. You can not do this with the Apple watch. So you don't have to type on the watch, you can type on your phone. Yeah, now we were talking about this and is this a new feature or is this always been there, but I've never noticed it before? I'm not entirely sure. I think it's new. I think this is new. And I think it's probably on reflection of it. When we talked about this, I thought, maybe we've just missed it or maybe a little bit of it. But of course, since the new update to watchOS, there has been a new keyboard. So we kind of make sense. Yeah, but that new keyboard. Your new keyboard is only available on that bigger, is it the series 7, Apple watch, isn't it? It's not for everyone, just on that bigger screen because you've got two mil bigger. It's not available on my series four. That's interesting. I didn't know that. I thought it was a cross device. No, no, it's because you're massive screen on the latest Apple watch. I bought it now. You've got something to lure over the rest of us. But yeah, she's got a keyboard villain. Well, maybe maybe that's why. Maybe this new feature of allowing you to answer text through the iPhone is because of that. So you haven't tried this yet. I keep meaning to but as ever in my Apple watch is just stuck on charge on next to my bed. But the reason I'm interested I'm interested in you trying is because how would you then enter text into the app on the watch? Well, yeah, I just assumed you could just enter the text on the companion app and save it as bookmarks. Basically, you couldn't enter a custom address. You would just use whatever bookmarks you saved, but you could use scribble, I suppose, but that's never very good, but if you've got this option of using your iPhone to type the address and it's all gravy, right? And when you think about it, because the first time thinking of this is ridiculous, but actually you could say it will see Google as I did. I went to Google to search for something. I was actually looking to get to the MI website. That was my intention. And what I did was I typed in accessible media and I was able to use the rotor on the watch to get to headings to get to links. Oh, that's cool. And just basically swipe down to get to where I want to meet no different really frankly to use in the iPhone to browse the web. I mean, actually, no difference at all for a voice-over user. You're just doing it all in your watch versus your phone. So I think it's worth checking out. I responsive is it because that's what it's all about to me? How responsive are you waiting for it to catch up when you swipe blew me away? It was so quick. I remember that Twitter app, we tried a while back. I was at chirp. There's chirp yet and there's also J, I think is the other one, yep. I haven't tried that one, but I tried and I remember what this is terrible. It was so slow, loading the tweets and I thought, I can't be killed with this. No, this is super fast, no like at all. And I think for a voice-over uses, this is probably the best way of doing it. If you're on the move and you want to quickly check something on your I'm thinking about people who might be using their watch independently of their phone, for example, maybe you've got the full in their bag, or they've only got their watch on their wrist. And they've left their phone at home, you maybe you've got one of those four G LTE watches. The Simmons sign it, then you'd be able to navigate the web just using this. Obviously it would take forever to go through every single website to know how usable this is. And how much it can actually bring up. And I think for me, I'm going to read that love to be here to talk about this because I'd like to know what it actually looks like. How do you see what's going on? I mean, Google must be tiny on that screen. Yeah, it's true. I don't know how that works. But I tell you for us, first blindfold, I think this is brilliant. So yeah, check it out. Or something is nothing. Yeah. Is this the killer app? Is this finally where we say the Apple watch is actually useful? I think this is the first time I've seen something where I think I would actually go back to my watch and do this. It's not a huge amount of times I would spend I think when I'm on the move. If I was sitting on a train, sitting browsing the web of my watch actually doesn't seem like a bad idea. Arguably, I could just put my foot out and do the same thing. There is that. Well, that's the argument for anything. Exactly. Why would you have one or the other? If you're in a situation, or you just want to get some information quickly, I think that would be cool. If you could link it in the city, but of course, we almost did a useless, but if we could get silly connected into so it could essentially use that as some kind of browser to open up information. That would be amazing. But I think we're a long way off that, which is nonsense when you think about it. But it's nice we got this option. Yeah, I think so. I think it's cool. So check out micro browser or upside down each browser. Upside down each Bros are brilliant. It's about dollar is available on an Apple App Store near you. You should definitely check out because I've got to say I think this is going to be the killer app. For this device, I think finally it's got some purpose in life. Well done you. Well done whoever made it. Right. And also, well done, all the accessibility. Everything works. It's so simple. I think that's the thing about the watch, isn't it? Because of the simplicity of the interface, it kind of makes any app accessible. To some degree, actually it makes more sense as you keep saying it makes more sense for us as visually impaired people because who wants to see that on the screen a web page on the screen seems weird to me. Stick an airport in. You got Bluetooth keyboard connected to that, even a Braille display on your Apple watch now?.
"lenovo" Discussed on Double Tap Canada
"Braille display. To me, that's perfect. I don't know. Isn't that sort of doing away with the whole? Because it's all about learning the Braille keyboard as well, isn't it? Well, it's interesting. That sounds a bit of an argument in the community at the minute, isn't it? Because I've had this argument before of people saying, well, it's important to know how to type real and ethnic is. It absolutely is. But at the same token, more of us are using computers than anything else. Not many of us are producing brielle on a Perkins. I mean, yes, you can. It's handy to be able to do that. But ultimately, you can connect an embosser if you've got one up to a computer and it'll print out real for you in the way that a Perkins would if you were in front of it Tapping away. You've got an embossing. No, absolutely, but you may not have one, but you may have access to one through maybe a local group or maybe a society has one you're able to use or maybe to send the files to someone to get it printed. I've just sort of a great business idea. Steven's printing Braille. But that actually that's the way to do it. So there are ways to do it, which means you would only ever touch the computer, you wouldn't really bother too much for the Perkins style. So knowing the qwerty keyboard is probably more important in that case and most of us like this girl said yesterday are growing up using the keyboard using jaws or a screen reader or Mac, or whatever. They're using that with a quori keyboard, but also reading the Braille. So which is more important is that they're writing as in the creation of the Braille with the Perkins keys, or is it more important to be able to read it? I would see readings more important than the writing. Yeah. Marginally. If you're putting them next to each other, it's the reading is probably more important because you need to be able to read the thing right across the point. But the writing part, well, as long as you get the information down and I think the question keyboard is probably the best way for input and that's why the mantis is very popular, especially in education. I get it, but I can hear people saying no, well, you know, of course it's all reliant on the technology. What there's a power cut or whatever a meteor strikes the earth, right? How are you going to fill up if a meteor strikes the earth? How will I type out my message to see help in exactly right? Exactly right. How will you do that Stephen? Because, you know, you need to know the hurricanes Braille keyboard. I'm putting my head between my legs and kissing my backside goodbye at that point. So I don't care. And you can put that in brittle and stick it somewhere. Stick it. When I'm kissing, frankly. I'm struggling to find a reason to argue against that. Because look through. I honestly, I think that the value of being able to type in Braille is there. I'm not suggesting for a second is no. I'm just saying for my personal use, what I found is I have the credit keyboard, I've got the Braille display, and what I'm doing is I'm reaching over the Perkins keys to get to the cross all the time. And I'm really actually using those keys. The only time I tend to use the Braille itself is with the iPhone. And that's because essentially I'm replacing that keyboard. And I do find that easier. So I find that quite interesting. I find it just true. It's not just the on screen keyboard can be difficult on the iPhone. The Braille keyboard. I've said before. I just learned I had a few lessons in grade one and using the Braille input on the iPhone was really really quick. I did find it easier than using the on screen queer key keyboard. So you're going to join me next year, you're going to do this course with me. I am. Yes, definitely time. It's now we're never Stephen. I'm never going to do it if I don't do it now. And I've got to say, I've seen some interesting tweets and posts from different Braille organizations where they're just thrown out these little tips and these little these little pointers and bits of advice, which I don't know, I've never seen them do it that way before. I think it's because of that girl I was telling you about, I think it's people like that, right? They're putting information out there, there is more accessible, we're getting away from this idea, because when you talk about Braille, it always gets very serious very quickly. It's like a lecture is a series, it's like taking a course, but it is of course, but yeah, it's very interesting. It's all about education and it's the importance of it. And I get all that stuff. Of course, it's important. All that is important, but at the same time, some of us are not going to use this for any more than notes or for putting labels on plugs. I mean, how useful is that? Let's be Frank about it. That's the kind of thing I'm going to use Braille for. I'm not interested in using it to sit and read tons of books. I mean, I'd like to. The thing for me is truthfully, I want to be able to read the emails in the short set a couple of weeks ago. I want to be able to read the emails on the show. I can't do that at the moment. So that would be cool. Now obviously, to do that, I'd have to spend some time reading the emails first before we start so that I'd be able to at least have a sense of where I'm going so if I lose my place, I can quickly get catch up because I can't read that quickly. That's right, yeah. But it does mean I'd have that skill and also just being able to sometimes use a device in silence. I don't know about you but I have a real thing and I don't know there'll be a name for this as a condition at some point in the future. But I'm convinced that there's a real challenge for some people. And I think I've got this where listening constantly to speaking voice. Is off putting. It's called marriage. Wow. I'm glad you said that. Even I wouldn't go that far. I was covering the ears of the Lenovo smart clock, because it can deal with this. Look, stick around, because I want to talk about something pretty cool that we find I've been playing with this over the holidays as well. Our browser, a web browser for your Apple watch. Wow. This is pretty cool stuff, and it's made for the sites, but I think the blind is going to enjoy it much more. I love when this thing.

You Should Brand It For Those Who Don't Understand It Too
"Normally. When we think of branding we think about something. That helps differentiate al product from another for people who know what they want. So you know you want a laptop computer. You've got the choice between lenovo brand or an apple. Mac book brand for example. But today when i was out on my walk on the street and not in the park because close my park. I saw an example which i think explains why you be branding things for people that don't understand it because coming towards me on a car. I saw one of those rooftop storage box things. And i'm thinking to myself what they actually call. That was a long walk a couple of hours so your mind starts to wander and you see something like that. You start to think. And so i'm asking myself. What was that thing called. I couldn't actually remember what it was called. And then as i'm having this thought as this cargoes passed. I can see the brand on this thing. Takeuchi aka and it's very well branded along the side and also along the back and so now when i want to go and find out what that thing is instead of just searching for car rooftop storage box thing i'm gonna typing the word taka the brand and so now that brand is cemented him my place. Even though it's not a product that i've really thought about buying and it's not a product that i've really seen very much around and the idea of having your brand on stuff not just for people who know what they want for people that don't is i think something that sometimes escapes us and as if to prove my point about twenty minutes later a naveh compost having another one of these storage boxes and i still can't remember the brand all met box. It wasn't very well branded. Eat some i think it was. J moti 'em or something but it wasn't very clear branding. They really hadn't thought much about the branding for passing by traffic for example and for people who didn't really know the difference between the brand and another so. I think the listening that that i picked up at least was that when you branding things don't just think about branding it for market. Who understand you'll product. Think about you'll branding for those. That don't understand it. Because if i don't understand it and you branded then all of a sudden your brand is the one that i recognize and your brand is the one that i will go back to

"In more browsers. That's why they made this. I downloaded it. And i hope to talk about it next week. Thanks for the pig. Dj us should add for for four free. How are they making money My pick this week is not as exciting as yours. I'm talking about a mouse. So if you are a mouse nerd. Maybe this is exciting. But i was browsing slick deals like i do every day and this mouse popped up and it is the lenovo think pad bluetooth silent mouse. I gotta say. I've been using this mouse now for about four days and i am loving. The great thing about this mouse is that it is only twelve dollars. After all of the discounts. I took advantage of a deal. That lenovo was having and got this mouse for twelve dollars out the door. It arrived on thursday and my first week. Impressions are great. I've been using the mouse. Flawlessly on two of my computer systems actually bought two it features a bluetooth five point. Oh chip and switched at the bottom that lets you use it among two devices. The silent mouse gimmick really works. You will not. Hey yourself clicking the left and right mouse buttons when you are using the device. Now i'll be able to click in the library and at night without waking up my girlfriend or a library patron or if i'm on a zoom call i can now be stilled scrolling as i'm looking at web pages normal even hear me is amazing. The nice thing about this mouse is that i can switch between eight hundred sixteen hundred and twenty four hundred. Dpi settings with the press of a button. It's not like an actual normal mouse. In the fact that this mouse is pretty flat. It took a little getting used to but it does not give me hand cramps. After hours of usage it comes with the aa battery. So you don't have to worry about making a trip to the drugstore to give this mouse ago. And of course since. I'm now in apple fan boy. I love the fact that is bluetooth and i don't have to mess around with a usb dongle now. Don't get me wrong. My logitech g six two zero mouse. Who works great but it requires me to use it dangle. With this mouse i am truly free after. He's in his mouth for about four or five days. I have to admit. I'm sold actually bought two more and will be using one for my podcasting rig in one more for my travel bag for win. The time comes that to travel again. The mouse is still currently on sale for fourteen ninety nine but with the coupon code of extra ten included in the show notes it will not get down to thirteen fifty and if you are a student an extra five percent will be applied bringing this to around twelve dollars like i said bluetooth. Mouse wirelessly works across ios as well android as well so for twelve bucks to me. It's kind of a no brainer. I wanted to pick one of these up. That's an amazing value. There's mice that go for twenty thirty bucks and they are not near as nice as the one you're talking about here it's great it's small. It's compact it'll fit in your bag so far really impressed. Well today. we're going to change things up a little for the last segment. Normally we'd have either in engineering explain segment or something. A little on the lighter side with some comedy but today we got a little feedback in our discord of people. Asking how to ace interviews. So i wanted to expand on some of the things that i've learned from either reading or talking to other people are going through the interview process myself. And we're going to be talking about the star method of interviewing a that some of our more entry level engineers market benefit more if we take a little time to go over this method and even those that have been in the field and are still going through interviews. It'll be a really good refresher now. Interviews are meant to allow you to show your potential as an engineer and really shine your career to a high polish in this industry. We normally do technical interviews but those are often used to make sure a candidate lives up to their resume. They are important to pass. Don't get me wrong. But they're usually easier if you're already highly technical the interviews that make or break. Most technical people are the behavioral interviews. These are the ones that we all dread but often have to be done to make sure an engineer's a good fit for a team or even the company behavioral interviews. Ask questions such as tell me about a time win and give me an example of a time when you did this. This is a time when you have to answer in the form of a story pulling from your career or life time that would match scenario for which there asking if this were not tough enough your example must be to the point brief and not ramble never ramble. So with that in mind. Let's discuss a method that will allow you to accomplish precisely that the method is the star method which stands for situation task action result. I you describe the situation you found yourself in secondly describe what you were responsible for during the situation. Thirdly describe the actions you took to address the situation. And lastly share what outcomes your actions achieve it simple on the face of it that's deceptive so the example question will cover today is tell me about a time when you achieved gold that you initially thought was out of reach so i'm going to break this down into its four parts. The first part is situation. Our company was in a phase of open enrollment which normally makes implementing changes to our environment. Very hard to accomplish. But we had a new fischler button to deploy due to a contract expiring and we needed to move to the new product quickly. The task i was tasked with working out a plan for deployment before the contract ended for our previous product. The action i worked with all of the process stakeholders application owners and change management and we collectively formed an implementation plan the result. It turned out to be a complete failure. No i kid. The actual result was we did miss our implementation marks slightly but that extra time allowed us to do more testing resolve other unforeseen issues in our environment and deploy soon after so. That's just one example of how to use the star method. You can find many other examples on other websites online once you take the time to formulate a few of these stories for your most common interview questions which you can also find online and you write these stories down. they'll become easier to create in. Memorize once you make a few for your next interview. Go over them several times so you can speak to them without reading them or glancing at your paper during the interview by using the star method. You'll sound concise to the point. And hopefully win the hearts and minds of your interviewers so if you use this method or even the carl method let us know how it worked out for you in our discord or on linked in and remember. We're rooting for you. In everyone in discord is looking to help one another there rooting for you too. So if you want more tips and tricks like this come join our great community of engineers on discord in linked in and we will all help someone get to where they want to be fantastic advice. I have used the star method very successfully in previous I agree with you like this is. This could be the make or break part of you getting that job when you are in a job interview they wanna see how you tackle the problem in the star. Method is a great way to show how you think. All right engineers. Thank you for spending time with this. Could we ask you to rate our podcast on itunes google podcasts or spotify if you take a screen shot of your review and share it with us on social media which is linked in or discord we will mention it on the next show and let me leave you with a quote for the week from steve jobs. Technology is nothing. What's more important is that you have faith in people that they're basically good and smart and if you give them tools they'll do wonderful things with them. Thank you everyone for sticking with us through another great episode. We hope we've provided you with something. You can take away from this discussion to make your life or work a little bit easier.

Deals for Black Friday 2020
"We need to put the bat signal up for one of the top tech gurus in the world from U. S a today and so many other great publications that literally Jennifer Jolly Jennifer. Welcome to WGN. Thank you so much for having me. Well, it's great to have you. I mean, obviously, this is a busy busy time of year. I think people are always kind of leaning on you to help guide them in as many ways as possible. But this is a time of year where everybody starts flipping the switch. From the turkey. Certainly we're gonna have that food all weekend long. But start thinking. Okay. What's out there? What am I going to need? What are people gonna want And where do I get it right? Yeah. And how do we know that we're actually getting the best deals? You know, all of a sudden this frenzy has started. The good thing about this year is what we're all pretty much suck at home. So instead of having to go out and camp out, you know long lines outside these big box stores. We just have to wait with our finger poised over the check out now, But me on our laptops. That's good and bad press. It means people started shopping much much earlier this year. Some 60% of people across America say they're done. The holidays. But then for the rest of us who really haven't even started? That means we better get going because a lot of things that you're selling out and with shipping Billy's things like that. You know, this might be a good chance. We if we wait too long, we won't be able to get it. I wanted to ask you to Justus, though we all complain. You know, the holiday decorations are starting to become available. You know, in September, you know where the thinks they're the Halloween stuff is coming up in the summer is when people are looking towards you know black Friday what it used to mean where you did have to physically congregate in the parking lot off the walmart and trample your neighbors and friends in order to get that deal now because There is just so much access, and so much of the world in a million different ways has become on demand is that it's sort of blurring the line where maybe cos they're trying toe, get a jump on things, or is this the kickoff and then there's it just turn into like, okay, it's just open season on opportunities. You just got to keep your eyes open. Well this year because of the pandemic, and really, because Amazon did their big sale days in October, and you know, instead of in July, they had him in October. So that's really when everybody jumped in with the deals and almost all the big box retailers. The targets the best buys the WalMart. Their deals have been going on. Kind of the whole time, like targets started November. 1st Best buy started rolling out their black Friday deals last Sunday, So we've been seeing a lot of these deals already. And really, the message has been shop early shop online. Uh, if you don't get the big markdowns today, it's okay. Don't panic because you'll still have a chance. Tomorrow you'll still have a chance The next day and Cyber Monday is supposed T blow by all. Shopping ever in a single day online, So there's still a few chance of left something you need to shop. But then also I read it in some of the notes and some of the things that you've shared that is also The thing that is one of the hot products is is laptops and new laptops. What should we expect? As sort of the life expectancy off the laptop? I remember traveling the country, maybe even the world with a laptop that must have lasted eight years or something. Where every day I would wake up and say, Are we gonna make it today? And now two people and prices have you know if you if you shop around, prices have come down a little bit, and certainly the technology Has stepped up. What should we expect out of a laptop and is now the time to get one? Even if it wasn't that long ago, you got one. You know if you are a heavy, heavy laptop user like I am for my work, and I write scripts every day and write articles every day. I'm I use my laptop all the time travels with me. I am really lucky if my math book pro My Apple left laptop last more than three years, That's dramatic, But I added on, you know, it's got a lot going on all the time. So heavy laptop user you are really lucky if you can keep that thing running in it. Shit for five years. If you're more of the normal average laptop user seven years is kind of it these days, and I say if you have a laptop right now, that's seven years older, older and you go try one of these newer versions out today, whether it's a Lenovo gel, the New Macs are are the best. Computers we've ever seen out of Apple and you know of the Mac line and the same across the board I My second favorite brand is Lenovo and the New York and nine I two in one notebook. It's the most versatile too, and one really. It's more like a five in one. That's a laptop that folds to prop up like a 10 to life flat like a tablet. It's one of these models that is ushered in this new generation of portable powerful laptops. What do we expect out of those? All day. Battery life, more modern, connective, itty lightning fast speed and a lot more room to store all of your documents
Apples flashy M1 chip raises the question: What happens to Intel?
"With me is resident big brain and expert on all things technical stavish shanklin. Welcome stephen i own so apple. Developing its own and one ship to power macs marks the start of a break up with intel which really intel processors have long powered macbooks for more than a decade a decade half. So how bad is this for intel. It's modestly bad so in the short run. It's not a big deal. They'll start to lose some sales because apple will start selling mac books with its own processors. But it's still selling a lot of macs with intel chips in apple. While very prominent company is a small smallish part of intel revenue. So kind of at first glance on paper. It's not that big a deal but reputation. It's a big problem. And what you say. The break-up just started while in the marketplace. When you're buying something just started but really. This breakup started years ago. When intel failed to improve its manufacturing to modernize its chips to make it fast. Make them faster so really this has been going on for quite a while this just sort of public manifestation of the break up so really this is emblematic of deeper problems at intel. That's segway because i wanted to ask if there was anything that intel could have done to avoid the scenario. Was this always in the cards. I don't think it was inevitable. I think that if intel had continued with tiktok approach that it had a few years ago where it improved the architecture of its chips one year than it improved the manufacturing the next year then group the architecture group of manufacturing going on okay for awhile did that knit. it kept its competitiveness. If it continued to do that apple might still be selling until basement acts but one of the big things that happened a few years ago was apple. Acquired a chip design company called pa semi that started designing its iphone processors. And it's been improving the performance in the abilities of those chips steadily for several years so even if until had been more capable with its manufacturing in stayed more competitive apple. No-doubt would've looked at its own in house chip expertise and abilities You to be on a pretty good run here and doing chips in house saves apple a lot of money analyst estimates. I've seen her probably about a hundred dollars to two hundred dollars per laptop compared to buy intel chips so there's a huge financial incentive for them to bring that in house but the other point is. There's this so-called cook doctrine named after. Tim cook which states that apple wants to control the most important fundamental parts of its technology. And there's a few things more important fundamental than a processor processor. The operating system like the app store and all kinds of control points for apple but the processor. It's really important. So bringing the m one chip into the max really gives apple a lot more control over its future so even if until had stayed more competitive it still seems quite possible that until would have lost this business got an you talked about apple being a small market small relatively small contributor to intel's revenue accounts for about seven and a half percent of the pc market as of according to see the last the last quarter results. But obviously this is a big perception issue for intel. I'm just curious what the impact is on the broader. Pc market of other peacemakers are gonna look at what apple is doing any other follow suit or at least consider these kinds of mobile processors. That intel doesn't make Here's the funny thing in a lot of ways the intel base pc makers down hp lenovo. Those folks actually already are ahead of apple. They've already been offering pc's with arm based processors built by qualcomm. But here's the deal. Those chips are not particularly fast. In fact they're pretty lacklustre so those are kind of which not a high priority model for most of those guys until still rules rules the roost. What apple is showing here is that you can get a much more reasonable balance of performance and battery life so the way i see it is apple's move could potentially embolden qualcomm it could embolden. Pc makers microsoft has a microsoft likes these arm based pc's could help push the future in that direction. They don't really have the processing horsepower to do that yet. Now maybe in a year or two or three qualcomm will start offering more powerful parts or somebody else will start doing. Maybe even another intel competitor like amd could potentially get excited about this. It's not clear to me but there. This could embolden the other parts of the pc world to move this direction. But they really don't have the technology pieces in place right now for that to happen anytime soon. So you talked about in your story. The various problems until faces. And you actually make the point that apple breaking up with intel or going through. This break-up isn't even the biggest problem facing intel. What what is what is the thing that keeps them up at night manufacturing problems so for years until has failed to modernize its chip manufacturing and this was a competitive edge that intel had for decades over other chipmakers. It's one of the reasons that it is one of the three remaining big companies that manufactures chips along with samsung in south korea and tsmc in taiwan so intel this this is the company that was co founder coined the term. Moore's law or it's named after him. Gordon moore they were. This was a core. Part of their reputation was being out on the cutting edge of processor manufacturing and they really dropped the ball starting about five years ago. And it's been excruciatingly painful for them internally and for their reputation to watch. Tsmc and samsung get ahead of them in manufacturing in. That isn't just a reputation issue. It's a problem because chip progress. Means you shrink the size of the electronic components the transistors on a processor. And that means you can squeeze more processor. Excuse me squeeze more transistors onto a processor economically which means you can make a chip. Do more stuff can have more cash memory. You can accelerate a accelerated graphics. You can just do all kinds of more stuff. That's what apple has been doing with. Its iphone processors. Every year it's been reducing new more capable processor indulge stock with its old processors. And so that's been really crippling for them. In moving to the new manufacturing processes they continued to stumble and most recently in their most recent earnings their new server chips. That was supposed to arrive. This year out turns out that's going to arrive next year so there continue to be problems and if if i could get that manufacturing back on track it would be in a much better position everything else would go more smoothly but having that foundational technology problem it's really crippling them.
Chromebooks Gain Share of Education Market Despite Shortages
"Four our first story pandemic has been huge for laptops and Google secret profit is winning it all chromebooks because we got, we got a whip out the history books here. We've come a long way with the old laptop computer my first computer ahead to live with my legs because it was a gateway, it was like to metric ton the only computer with a cow theme I think that's what they were going for their and then compaq laptops. I'm pretty sure doubled as a bulletproof like storm shield. Yeah, they were. Very Bruce Wayne, and then you had the dude, you're getting a Dell Guy. It's going to cost three thousand dollars. You better get a mortgage for that del. Ted Day the laptop market has changed in ways that might surprise you out. chromebooks are officially becoming the unofficial laptop of over Nineteen Jack. I noticed that because learning is happening remotely schools have been snatching up just the cheapest laptop option out there for kids and you know chromebooks are coming in at like two hundred fifty on the bottom of this is like a skinny computer with no hard drive it's basically a. Lego, it's a physical reincarnation of a chrome web browser that's about it oh, and if you're curious about getting one there sold out, it's a five-month way. Schools are snatching these up at such a rapid rate in preparation for distant learning that crumbs global market share for computers has climbed to ten percent from eight percent last year, which brought Jack and I do a key question. We found fascinating what Tech Company is. Dominating for laptops right now, this same tech company that was dominating for laptops three years ago Nick Microsoft. If there's a Microsoft makes its own laptops, but it's windows software still powers get this eighty three percent of laptops globally we're not just talking about those surface tablets. We're all seeing commercials for now Dell HP Lenovo, most of them are running on windows just like they were thirty years ago and you like look around a college philosophy class and see a lot of silver rectangle or apple macbooks not the winner smack books have just a tiny market according to the. Just, seven percent of global computers are Max ask because Apple has become the global club for high income people who pay in to get the fancy apple laptop. Attackers for the rest of the world, they're using windows or android or chromebook or something cheaper. So Jack, what's the takeaway for our buddies over at Google operation get kids hooked on our chromebooks, smackers most chromebooks in the world those belong to school at this shocking stat sixty, nine percent of all the computers bought this summer by K., through twelve schools in preparation for remote. Learning were chromebook. That's insane. Sixty nine percent. Koumba. Become like the modern day version of the OLA blue calculators used to have to the library did did you have those two? They're like ti like zero, zero, zero one the most fisted function on these things was all clearing before he could graduate to the eighty-three calculating absolute zero with those calculators. Now, Alphabet the company that owns. Google they benefit as kids start using chrome and Seymour. Google ads are also benefiting though by hooking kids at an early age into the Google ecosystem because if you're google docking in your google driving your google chrome booking since you're a seven, you're gonna live a different lifestyle potential. Yeah. If you've been since your seven, you're more likely to pick an android over an iphone. When you turn seventeen and finally get a phone maybe as early as Caney air by the way. Quick shoutout to all the teachers out there the new frontline workers of this country
The great laptop shortage of 2020
"Have you tried to buy a Laptop Lali Yep It's another victim of the pandemic, but there's more to the story. I'm Jefferson Graham, you're listening to talking tech. So the pandemic which sent everybody to work at home and learn from home also sent many people out to buy new computers for their kids or from themselves and most of what they bought where the cheap models you can buy really cheap laptops or three to four hundred dollars. They're not very good but they are cheap and they. If you don't tax them too much will do the job now they're gone and. Coupled with that is the Chinese tariffs. That the trump administration put through. So making it very hard to get those computers into our shores, the companies like Lenovo and Dell and HP have been scrambling to try to move their manufacturing out of China to countries like Malaysia in. Vietnam. And they're getting there but it hasn't happened totally yet meanwhile. You need a laptop. What are you GonNa do well forget about the cheap ones you're going to have to spend money. You're probably looking at six to eight, hundred, six, hundred, eight, hundred dollars says Tim Baharan a longtime analyst with creative strategies he recommends against buying a used computer because technology has moved on and they will not last. You doubt long better that you just spend the money I did some tests on Amazon and best buy and other sites and You can still find laptops you just GonNa pay a little bit more for them the windows computers. Again six to eight hundred dollars Max start at one thousand dollars for the MAC air go way up from there and Microsoft service is around eight hundred dollars for the entry level model. You will find a laptop just no, it's going to take a lot more work than it might have taken last year.

Looking for a MacBook Air alternative? Here are your best options
"With kids about to head back to school either in person or Colle- laptops. Are. Front. And Center. Now Michalak. Air is a popular option. There's actually a pretty wide world outside of Mackerel S I'm Roger Chang and this is your charge. With me laptop expert and senior reviewer Josh Goldman. Thanks for joining me. Josh. Thanks for having me, Roger. So we're getting close to back to school season and who knows what? That's really gonNA look like you know we've got folks potentially going my kid's GonNa. Go to school with a bunch of people doing remote learning But with that said, parents will generally WANNA decent laptop for their kids no matter what their ages at this point Just start things off do you have a general tips for people on the hunt for Nick Peter? The, the one thing having you know, ended the the last school. In Quarantine the one thing I did learn from that was if you can afford to get it laptop with a larger screen than the eleven point six inch screen that most of the kids have on their chromebooks. chromebook obviously, he became really popular with schools. Except they went with models that have eleven point six inch screens which are very difficult for navigating the world of online learning. A lot of the online learning tools require more screen space so that the kids can actually see what they're doing and I think if you're going to invest in a laptop for your kid this season, get them something with at least a thirteen inch display fourteen if possible or even larger if he can. So what about touchscreen is that something that's necessary or is that more of a luxury I don't know that it's a luxury some or necessary I think it's just something that you can get these days as far as I'm concerned. touchscreens of the future everybody uses their phone all day long that's a touch screen tablets touchscreens. It makes sense for kids to have a touchscreen because that's how they're used to communicating with computers these days so. If you can get one with a touchscreen. Great. I don't think it's going to be a detriment though if you don't get one with a touchscreen and since we're talking about MAC books anyway or air replacement. macbook airs don't have touchscreens anyway. So if you're GONNA go macbook air, then you're not getting a touchscreen anyway. But one of the luxuries of gone with windows is you can get them with touchscreen. So catching and the MAC book air has been a popular option for a long time for students particularly college students But generally, what are some of the big reasons why you'd want to consider alternative is far as an alternative? if want to go with the chromebook, it's because that's what your school district is on. That has that makes things a lot easier than. Going with a separate operating system like windows or Mac os but the bigger thing for a lot of people going back to school is whether or not there their software that they need to get through school is going to work with the operating system that they have other than that it's more or less just learning to deal with the different features in the different houses. So it's not. I wouldn't say that like the OS is a big issue, but it's certainly an issue and you WanNa, just make sure what you're using his compatible with the operating system that you're going. Guys let's start with windows the the most popular operating system out there. What are some of the best options for a windows laptop. So if we're going to stick with the like as a macbook air replacement the macbook air has over the years been the most popular option for kids in school and or in college in high school students but they're. Obviously the the windows PC makers figure that out pretty quick and made a lot of laptops that look and behave in everything that MAC book air. So you've got things like. If you WANNA go really premium. Got Things like the daleks ps thirteen or the HP Specter which have a lot of the same design touches and it's just a super premium long battery life good performance and around thousand dollars. which is what you're dealing with with the macbook air. You're still at around that thousand dollar price point for their starting configuration. You can as usual get a better deal with with windows than you can with Mac. He'll usually get more features better processor, those kind of things with you go with windows. If you want to go. So those two that I mentioned her thirteen inch. If you want to go a little bit larger, my personal recommendation for most people is the Lenovo. Yoga. See Seven, forty, it's a two and one. So it's a little bit more flexible. It's a fourteen inch little bit larger screen, but still a nice compact package really good battery life really good performance and you can get it for less than a thousand dollars yen full disclosure I took joshes advice in actually purchased one. My wife and I are very happy with it so. On Josh thank you, it is it. It's one of those laptops that looks and feels like a Mac Book Air Bit and a you just getting you're getting more for your money with it. If, you want to go even less expensive on windows I like the acer swift three, which is running amd's latest rising processors and those the the processing performance you're getting out of that is like twice that of more more expensive laptop. So it's it's or should I say the processing performance is that of a laptop that's twice as expensive. Because as the swift three starts at around six hundred dollars and it's a three pound laptop fourteen inch display really really nice. Good. Battery Life But yeah, it's it's really cheap with good performance.

In House vs. Consultancy
"Well all right alex. Hey great talking to you again really appreciate your time. we're back for some more design intent. Myself tony orlando. Daniel phipps aaron hernandez and of course the creator founder. Alex you'll have to pronounce your last name for us. Alex this niece okay. Well let's go. The ad is okay so similar site so happy to talk to you guys Maybe we can you introduce yourself of where you guys worked So the the reason why we gather today is because. I won't do this interview because i often have. This kris jenner of You should be working in their constituency our in house because Differences that can happen at the end of doing years of working. In hostile working inconsistency you will have a very different skaters. So that's why. I think it's it's good to have both side here on in this interview. we antonio who Will introducing serve but is basically designed neither at delta and we have a daniel simpson everyone who are like with fund design. Now at so we really to weld one with the in house we've constituency so that's Good interview to learn on the. What are the pros and cons of each side. Yeah i think that's good. That's a good topic. I know i have people asking me that all the time. I'll let you go first daniel since you're okay you've kind of been around in both worlds. Sure i have the i. I don't know fifteen years of my career. Kinda bounced back and forth a little So right now. I'm with access design actually started the company in two thousand and five so i guess Two thousand and twenty. That would be fifteen years prior to that. I worked for a couple of different Companies delving one of them. I worked for ibm and then another one and in between there i worked at a short stint at it consulting company up in the chicago area as well so for the first part of my career bounced back and forth a little bit and then i kinda finally may finally made the decision of okay thank the consulting thing is is a good place for me to rest for a while and so. That's what i've been doing since. Two thousand and five fifteen years running running your own small business correct consulting for various companies all over the country to some more for international companies as well So yeah and for the record. I've actually hired dan quite a bit to do work for me. Working adele so I'll i'll give a quick introduction of myself. I'll give a bit of a history later. I'll let aaron kinda talk about his his role. But i'm antonio designed enter for latitude no dell and i've been with dell thirteen years now but i've been in the industry for quite a long time erin so my name is aaron and i work here with daniel. I had access. I've been here for a little bit over two years two and a half years and a half years and this is all the experience or real real world. experience have had And i know it's a. It's a huge question whenever you're graduating or you're about to graduate or you're in school it's like what wh- what what she do. She go the consultant route or the more corporate route so i hope People get to learn how many years of experience you have in the field. Two and a half advocate. So that's that's you can give us the formula have i did. I have twenty years of experience. In most of it is inconsistency so we we have like like a goo- good of people different spectrum invasions on the same on this. I if one thing i would say that anybody getting out and design new in the design world or even established the design where i think the most single most important thing he can do is make sure that the the mentor that you work for or with is the right mentor for you. I i think that's you know my career was was the last with with really fantastic. Mentors when i would start at. Ibm right out of graduate school. And if it wasn't for those guys in al i'll name them John swansea was probably the first designer that i worked for for a long time who retired from ibm lenovo a few years ago. He worked there for over twenty five years. I
"lenovo" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"User and fan of Lenovo ThinkPads me too me too best keyboard best product it's just a great product interesting though I had a six generation up until a few months ago and I upgraded to the seventh generation because all the reviews said my goodness that's a much brighter five hundred nits screen well when I put my some of John's next my sex John it's actually dimmer during my search down and I'm wondering if that's because I took the top of the line for K. UT H. H. E. R. dole believe blah blah and if it if it's normal for those four K. screens you have sacrificed right yes now they still bought for four hundred eighty net sold before I called tech support and haven't come into my machine apart put a new screen on I thought I'd call to see if this is normal you're talking about the X. one carbons yes yeah I love those thin light powerful and the number does really if you're willing to pay for it really nice screens but you're right brightness I don't know for a fact that four K. is less bright I don't know if that's the case and I also think when they see these new figures they can be misleading I don't know if it's brighter are less bright at from you know gecko or you know I do not presume you've looked at the brightness settings it is the case that for battery power it's not unusual I've seen this in Lenovo settings for the computer to never go to full brightness well I start checked all the settings in fact on my windows ten on my X. one carbon usually under the brightness settings that allows you to turn off adaptive nice now that always bring that down that's to adapt to the room's brightness right now option is not present on my machine look in the bios the set up because there often isn't set up and I'm trying to remember I don't have a X. one I don't have a seventh generation I'm very jealous but but I I see member in past generations in the bios they're easy defaults there's a brightness setting a default brightness setting and I've noticed on some machines that set the half so before I use before I would call them I would just make sure going to set up make sure if there is a brightness setting and I again it's I don't know if there is in the new version but check see if it's if it's just coming on at half brightness and staying that way I wouldn't be surprised because it kills battery one of times people are also he said the screens to break this is a common complaint from filmmakers and others is that you guys right you watch is so bright and it's not good it's you should be watching the dimmer you will see all the HDR if it's dimmer that might be other factors HDR you got the HDR high dynamic range screen what you really want is when you're watching a movie for the no the solar flashes the specular highlights in the sun reflecting that should be that should almost heard that should be really really bright but you should also be able to see if you're in a dark room it should seem really inky black and you should see no you know no grace no it no mo no banding and that's what each year gives you and it may change the perceived brightness as well right because they're preserving that five hundred minutes for that specular highlight I don't know what windows tens doing at all
