"More growth for apple in india this time on the tablet front macrumors has new numbers from idc show ipad growing. Its market share there by thirteen percent year over year. It's kind of a good news. Bad news story. The growth was enough to put apple and third in terms of tablets per india. The bad news the top two players lenovo and samsung saw their shipments grow more than one hundred fifty percent each compared to two thousand nineteen macrumors says. That's because they sell cheaper low end tablets compared to apple's ipad line. I said it was good news bad news but it can be spun back to good news. Third-place means there's room to grow which is the kind of thing. Investors like to hear.
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

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.

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
Behind The Scenes Of The Linode Object Storage Service
"Today I'm interviewing will Smith about his work on building object storage for the Lenovo Cloud Platform. So we'll can you start by introducing yourself? Yeah I've been with winnowed for about five years. Now I originally worked on our transition from the hyper visor to KVM which was a super exciting project I since then moved on to working on the new API that we launched two years ago. And after that I was moved out of the Storage Project. And do you remember how you first got involved in the area of data management? Well Leno does a lot of data management what with hosting virtual private servers and everything but specifically with object storage. They already had a prototype. Developed of an object storage cluster. Based on Seth and they just wanted to bring a team of villagers into productized which is kind of where I came in. And so you mentioned that you started off with this steph prototype wondering if you can just give a bit of an overview of the current state of what you have available for object storage on the Leonard Platform and some of the motivating factors for building it out and managing it yourself rather than building an integration with
How Coronavirus is affecting MWC 2020
"GSA UPDATE ON CORONA virus. That is the subject line of an email that was sent out to registered attendees for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which is happening in just a few weeks. Hello everybody and welcome to the pocket now. Weekly podcast hosted by yours truly judge of Gara. What's going on everybody all right? So we're GONNA get a little bit more abundant this particular episode because yes we have to talk about the corona virus which has literally affected so many portions of the world and various various different sectors including tech. Now I'm sure that most of you are aware of the different stories that have come out of Baku Rona virus in general but there were some very interesting stories stories that happened within the last week or so in regards to the different people who are going to be exhibiting at Mobile Congress. Obviously you're listening to the pocket. Weekly podcast so you are probably aware of what NWC is it is literally one of the most important shows throughout every single year where mobile technology is given the centerstage pretty much every company that has a hand in the creation of smartphones tablets wearables infrastructure five G. tend to go to Mobile World Congress and many of their big announcements happened in Barcelona. People like myself in high Rivera and many of the people that you know in the tech world go to the show every every single year and it is generally a very good time. Barcelona is a wonderful city With a lot of character and actually mobile world congress as far as the venue is concerned. The fear of our CELONA is one of the coolest venues when it comes to these shows that we go to every year but this year. It's going to be incredibly difference because with the News Corona virus spreading in China and in certain parts around the world. A lot of people have had to make the executive decisions to either attend or opt out of of 'em. WC without naming names. I know a few people who actually opted out of going. And it's going to be a bummer. Not Seeing them in Barcelona as it is basically a tradition for all all of us tech friends to get together at this show and I know a couple of other publications that have actually been giving their people some early notice that if they don't want to go to Barcelona they can actually say so. And of course this all started when the corona virus first sprouted in the WHO Bay province of China particularly the epicenter. Being a place is called Wuhan that is part of mainland China but because of the level of travel that we have in today's society and today's High-tech Society. Let's say there are people both traveling from so many places around the world that not only would people from that province moved to many other places via air travel and whatnot. They're also many visitors. Who might my end up going to? Who Bay province and they are also part of this huge quarantine or huge tracking of people who might be affected by this corona virus us? And as you're going to hear later from the email that I mentioned at the beginning of this episode Whether or not you have actually stepped foot near or in Wuhan Matters. But let's just talk for a little bit about the impact that the GM A has on the mobile industry. Mobile Congress is like I said one of the biggest shows of of the year it is one of what we call the Big Three Ceus. 'EM WC and EPA in Berlin. You're all aware of CAS which just happened about a month ago. And then Eva In Berlin happens usually every September near the end of the year when some final announcements are happening but at the beginning of the year basically in the first quarter. This is when you set the precedent precedent for the rest of the calendar year at 'EM WC by announcing some really big devices in Barcelona back in the day Samsung used to use. WC The as the jump off point for their galaxy S. line they used to go to 'em WC with the new devices but overtime Samsung decided to hold their own shows. Handy events Of course now we call those unpacked. And those are the shows that Samsung uses in order to announce the new devices but pretty much every other company attends Hans Nwc along with thousands upon thousands of other exhibitors to show off their latest updates to just highlight some of the big names. You have everyone from Xiaomi. A two Vivo and honor to Qualcomm Lenovo Motorola sick imagine how everybody felt when. LG One of the most recognizable names and mobile tag decided to pull out and of M W C completely. There's a certain hall in the fear of the venue for Mobile World Congress where all of the phone manufacturers tend to sort of clump together. And it's there that you can walk from qualcomm and just maybe take a two minute stroll over to Samsung and from Samsung you can take a quick stroll over to lg but now that huge huge portion of that hall LG tends to take. It's just going to be empty. It remains to be seen. What would happen with these particular companies booths and spaces basis now that they're not actually going to be there? But of course there are varying degrees to which companies are actually taking themselves out of the show Z.. T. E. announced that they wouldn't be at the show show but what that actually meant was they. Were not going to do a press conference but they would still have a booth and have representation on the show. Floor Ericson would then follow suit as the next company to to leave Mobile World Congress over concerns of the corona virus. Ericsson a name that you might remember from these Sony Ericsson days of those particular. Let's say dump phones as it was before the smartphone. smartphone era is still a major player in telecommunications and probably the biggest blow to GSI may so far when it comes to 'em WC. Andy's exhibitors was invidia video announcing that they would no longer be attending the show. This one's a big one because according to the verge in video was going to host ten sessions and actually have a place called the a innovation center now I have seen Invidia at a number of different shows and they always talk about the power of their cards and processors especially in terms of ai and and videos AI is starting to pop in so many different places even beyond computing and mobile They actually started talking about autonomous driving and getting into the five G. Game but the market detail here is that nvidia was also a major sponsor of the conference in general and they have partnered with the conference to have a bunch of different sessions every single year. But it's probably the biggest headline mainly because video was one of the major sponsors of 'em. WC Twenty twenty on top of everything that they were supposed to be hosting the fact that they okay and three other companies so far at the recording of this episode have pulled out of mobile world. Congress means that all of the topics they have been part of are no longer going to be in the discussion. There's going to be less. Ai There because of invidia less mobile devices because of LG Z.. T. Not having a major presence anymore and of course on the telecommunication side when it comes to Business Ericsson not being their means that they are out of the conversation during the show as well but that doesn't stop the fact that we you're still going to 'EM WC and WC is still going to happen after all there are still so many companies that will indeed be there and they will feel the conversations even if there's going to be a little bit less of a crowded space ticket for what you will but aside from Z.. T. E.. A lot of the major Chinese companies are still planning on attending and they are going to have have not only press conferences but major major updates to many of their products during the Barcelona show.
