American Airlines Delays Boeing 737 MAX Once Again
"March. A seven thirty seven Max crashed in Ethiopia killing one hundred fifty seven people and shocking the world Regulators started grounding the plane and within days. The Max was completely out of the air. Boeing began working with authorities to figure out what happened and airlines also had to reckon with the fallout American airline CEO. Doug Parker said the company was ready to work closely with Boeing to get the planes back in the air. Your is your tragic events And what we care about is safety and we will work together as this industry always does to ensure that safety. He's number one focus. But at the same time American Airlines and other carriers needed to figure out how to cope with grounding of the Max while still operating their businesses Mrs it was really something of a scramble for them to figure out what to do. Reporter Alley cider covers the aviation industry industry. They looked at what would be the least disruptive way to cut flights the Max mostly flew between the New York area and Miami. You you know that's where most of the Max's were being used. Obviously Kansas stop flying between the Florida so they had to kind of spread it out and look at their network and look okay. We're flights that we we have multiple frequencies a day where we could cut one. So we're not just ending travel between two cities trimming a couple of frequencies looked at long haul flights where you can cancel one long haul flight instead of a bunch of short flights where you've suddenly inconvenienced a lot of people. At the time of the grounding. You had people who were already scheduled to travel in. Their plans. Had to be sort of offended at the last minute you know. We talked to passengers who were sort of already on vacation. And then they get a call from their airline airline that says actually your flight home has been cancelled. Then we've re booked you and maybe on a flight that's not on the day. He wanted to travel or has a stopover when he wanted to direct act. Can you tell me what all of this flight rescheduling looked like so most of the stuff they do software. A lot of it is automated. And they're still using using that software you know they're not just like using crayons and colored pencils on a big map of the US or the world but there is a lot of thoughts and analysis and expertise expertise that has to go into figuring out. What's the best way or the least inconvenient way to basically redraw so I spoke to Vasu Raja? He works the network planning at American Airlines. And from what you told me there is a lot of late nights like imagining correctly. Like people at the office office really laid and lots of empty pizza boxes and he said yeah pretty much and all. This scrambling wasn't just causing headaches and late nights for the planning team. Once they make a decision about their network is sort of ripples throughout the company there's people on Revenue Management hoped to decide what the availability should be in making sure to keep some mhm seats open so anyone. Who's Max flight got canceled? You know has the place to go. You know they tell everyone. Don't worry you'll get an email if your schedule has been changed but if you're worried about your vacation you're definitely going to call so they have to staff up on customer service and make sure there are people there to answer those calls and explain the situation so it really is this huge logistical challenge talents. That kind of ripples throughout the airline at the time I think there was a sense that could be pretty temporary but that delay would not be temporary as the Federal Aviation Administration investigated. Boeing's Max Fleet. They uncovered more and more safety concerns. I think what initially seem to some some people like it would be a pretty straightforward fixed. That could be done. Relatively quickly started to just take longer and longer as new issues were discovered and just amid a heightened scrutiny by the FAA but also regulators all over the world. You know bullying was saying it was going to provide all this information to regulators to take a look at and that kind of kept getting pushed back again and again and you know the process just kind of kept getting delayed over and over again regulators flagged problems with pilot training emergency safety st procedures and some of the planes software and as the safety inquiry stretched. On for months Boeing's estimate on the Max would return to service kept moving back I Boeing pushed it into the summer of twenty nineteen and then bowing pushed back again until the end of the year. With each month that the Max's return was delayed. American Airlines had to go into scramble mode all over again canceling more flights. They're kind of just on the receiving and here you know all they can do is wait for Boeing and the FAA to work out the process. And there's really not a lot they can do to speed things along and airlines have to make decisions decisions about the Max you know way before they really having clarity about what's going on with the Max. They have to decide over two months like seventy days before her their schedule. That's when they really have to finalize things so they can get their flight attendants in their pilots scheduled beyond that point just gets harder and harder to make changes. So you know. They've had to kind of looking to the future and think. How likely is it that the Max is going to be back? And allie says the ongoing wing uncertainty put Americans growth plans on hold. It wasn't flying the twenty four Max planes. It had and it wouldn't be getting the sixteen more it had ordered for the rest of the year. American patients with Boeing was wearing thin. The airlines have gotten pretty frustrated with the number of delays that they've seen You know I don't want to suggest that they want to rush the process along but I think you know they're just unhappy with the way. Expectations have been managed. And just how long this has gone on. Those mismanaged edged expectations were costing American and it wanted bowing to pay.

Delays in the safety assessment of the seven thirty seven MACs were piling up and American Airlines was juggling the fallout its pilots were upset because they we're losing money and peak. Holiday travel was on the horizon in an October investor. Call American CEO. Doug Parker expressed his aggravation with Boeing. They believe the F. B. certified in or quarter. It's probably best. It's that information is best case given what we've all seen. Ah over the over the course of this process so we're prostrate bullying American have been in touch throughout the year. You know American American and other airlines have made it clear that they don't believe they should be on the hook financially for this That they're expecting bowing to make them whole James extended grounding her customers or members enter. Cheryl's we're working to ensure that Boeing shareholders bear the cost of Boeing's failures not American Airlines American Airlines basically said they believed the grounding would result in a five hundred and forty million dollar reduction their full year or twenty nineteen and profits. So that's pretty significant and it's like a big step up from what they thought originally like in the first effort their first quarter earnings. They were predicting a three hundred. Fifty million dollar impact so it's been much more expensive than they were anticipating on. That call Parker said that American was in talks with Boeing about compensating. The airline for about five hundred forty million dollar hit and last week. American said it reached a settlement with Boeing for an undisclosed amount but that deal just applies applies to two thousand nineteen and the Max grounding is still ongoing meaning American Airlines is facing more costs twenty twenty. Where does this leave? American Airlines going into twenty twenty so going into two thousand twenty American Airlines has said that getting the Max flying again. It's sort of one of the biggest I think it needs to do to get on track. American is currently planning for the Max to return by June more than a year after the initial grounding but even even if the Max is clear to fly all the headaches and additional costs for American will be far from over for one thing. It'll take weeks of maintenance to get the planes ready to fly I again after they sat on the ground for more than a year. And then there's the issue of flight simulator training. I think the biggest thing in terms of time and money is that recently. It's starting to become more and more likely it sounds stats pilots. Who need to go through some kind of training before? They're allowed to fly the Mexican. Why would it pose such a high cost for American Airlines pilots would need to go through this training so first of all it was unexpected? It's not really budgeted time time for a simulator. It's just in one place so all the pilots have to come from wherever they're based all around the country and spend time in it. Can you describe bribe. What a flight simulator is like? What does it look like? They kind of look like Like in Star Wars those like like robots on skinny long legs that kind of what are they called At yeah that's sort of what they look like. Yeah Yeah I just googled it to me. That's what they look like. I'M GONNA get a lot of trouble with like a lot of people who are really knowledgeable trouble about aviation. Who aren't going to be like? No that's not what they look like so like a full motion flight simulator. They're sophisticated piece of equipment and they're very expensive and the process of getting everyone to wear the simulator is and scheduling them all for time in the simulator. You know it's just a big another logistical challenge. You know after a year. That's been full of challenges. Do you have a sense. That American Airlines is okay with some of this this delay because it's so much needs the restoration of customer confidence. I do think that safety is the highest priority for the airlines. Sort sort of making sure that everyone is confident in the plane is their top priority so they are planning to do a lot you know. There will likely be a period between when regulators liters allowed the plane to fly again and when it enters commercial service. And they're planning to sort of do as much as they can to put

"Seth Jason thanks for being here. I'm in my full don't run me over callers with my greasy sweaty guy who biked in a look. So for those of you who can't see me look for the video, that's, that's almost ever this is. Yeah. This is when the people are like, no we're happy that it's an audio podcast, we're thrilled. We don't need. We don't need to see you in the bright, orange biking shirt. I don't even have a handsome voice. Nice speaking voice. Let's move along. We've got we've got a bunch of news. And we're going to we're going to preview some earnings that are coming after the closing bell. Let's start with Dave, and Buster's, though, because first quarter profits came in lower than expected. And that's actually the first time in five years, that's happened for them. Shares of Dave and Buster's are down more than twenty percent this morning. I know they lowered guidance how much did they lower it? I mean they didn't they didn't miss by something. It wasn't a whole much that full year guidance to and they missed by a penny or something. But people are freaking out. I think once you've set up the expectation that you're going to do better than than people. Expect all the time than the minute, you don't all heck breaks loose. Hey, I on a stock that's done fifty percent or something. And he's a very clever tech company. So if you really want to know how to lose money come to me twenty twenty some percent and a day or a week, nothing but Dave and Buster's to me is one of those businesses seems odd to me that sort of still exists because you've. You've so much restaurant competition. And then you on game and food. I mean how is everybody not at home? Getting door dash food delivered while they play eight packs legends on their on their XBox. Can I answer that because you don't always want sixty your friends coming over to do that? You sometimes you just want to get out of the house. I suppose a comp comp suggests that the a slightly slightly negative flat. People aren't all add excited at least the last quarter, or so they've been getting a little growth over the years by opening new locations. The margins I was like, in the margin been kind of creeping downward for several years now. So this is not my idea of a super awesome, opportunity that free cash flow isn't really there. So unfortunately, you know, sitting there at a price earnings ratio of seventeen sounds like a bargain today. But I think it might need to be more of a bargain before it's a before it's a real deal. Glad you mentioned the cops because that was one of the things that leaped out at me when I was looking at this quarter was that they're, they're comps really. Aren't that great? The new locations. And by definition for those who are new to this podcast or new investing. When we talk about comps, same store sales by definition. Those are locations that have been open for at least a year, the new location. I mean, this, this is one of those things that is maybe not a red flag. But maybe it's a pink flag. Not just for Dave and Buster's. But for any, whether it's a grocery store, just a basic retail operation, or in this case, Dave and busters where it is a little bit of a pink flag where you go wait. So the new locations, there's the initial excitement. Dave and Buster's has opened up in your town or your city or whatever it's like, oh, let's go there. But if they can't sustain those people, and I'm wondering how much of the gross margins creeping down has to do with an increased marketing spent because it does seem like they are doing a lot of promotional stuff. Yeah. While the margin I mean, all the margins are on the way down. So I mean their food prices were going up for a while. And then we had labour and other costs going up. So, but a lot of restaurants are experienced. It's just plain old competition. You have to match prices or in, in some way or another, to bring people in the door. One of I guess, one of the challenges, I would guess, exists for Dave and Buster's is hey, it's a it's super small location without much stuff in it, right. No, it's, it's not it's a place where you play stuff. So it's not like cranking out another one of those poll as with the wrought iron furniture made out of black pipe from from the, the plumbing store. It probably costs, a little more money to build these locations, if they're not paying back so quickly. Your financial start to their other way. So I think on the plus side over the next couple of years, Dave and Buster's to the extent that they're looking open up new locations. We'll probably have more options as commercial real estate continues to face some challenges on the flip side, whenever the conversation turns to well, we think of recession is coming next year or two. You know, when I think about stocks that are recession proof, Dave and Buster's. It's at the other end of the spectrum, this is this is a business. That's done. Well for a bunch of years, but it seems like one of the ultimate discretionary income stocks. Yeah. I guess we'll find out someday. I'll predicting recessions has been a bad business. Yes. In a while. So the fact that the stock is at a two and a half year low, you're not looking at this ain't no. Yeah. By on this dip now. Yeah, I got I got a long history with with value, finger, quotes value stocks like this, that continue becoming more, and more of a value, but less and less of a value, if you know what I mean. Tesla had its annual shareholder meeting on Tuesday. Shares were up briefly this morning in part because Alon musk made comments at the meetings at the meeting. He said he say anything positive. Well, I can hardly imagine, you know what? Let's, let's be clear if he's not any CEO, who's not saying positive things that their shareholder meeting is doing a bad job of being the c. So I don't knock him for that. He said, among other things, it won't be long before we have a four hundred mile range car talked about in twenty twenty Tessa drivers will be able to use self driving features without intervention. I it seems like you just look at the stock chart today, there was some initial enthusiasm stock. Doc was briefly it's now down a couple of percents of problem. If you if you say things that don't turn out to be true often enough, sometimes people stopped believing you it was more than two years ago that Elon Musk promised us that you'd be able to sleep in your tesla while at drove across the country. And everyone believed it then, and then, you know that never happened, and then he kinda dials things back and then a couple of months ago, he doubt things if he said, four sure there will be a million robo tesla robo taxes on the road, you'd be stupid, not to buy any other car, which is just laughable. I mean, consumer reports a couple of weeks later rated autopilot, as dangerous and more difficult to drive with than just driving yourself because it was so erotic. And now we have a couple of months after that autonomy day, which to me, seemed like a smokescreen designed entirely to try to shift, the sentiment of the, the company away from financials and towards, you know, hey, we're going to become an Uber competitor and now. Now, a sort of walking things back and saying self driving without user intervention. But also at the same time supervised robo taxi, which, by the way like Waymo is doing that right now in that exists in other forms? And he just makes these promises that don't match up that don't line up with the reality of what other self driving car leaders are saying and what they're doing. This is a really difficult task and it's not just a matter of getting a couple hundred thousand or a couple of million more miles. There's real diminishing returns for machine learning for doing this, and they have not cracked, this not yet in Tesla's doing it with more. Limited hardware than other companies is nobody else trying to do it their way, which tesla true believers would say, well, that just shows a genius. Mosque is I tend to think that if he's the only one doing it this way, and all these other really smart people are seeing you probably can't do it that way that he's probably the one who has it wrong. So very interesting shareholder meeting. There were some other comments that stood out. To me, Tesla's shareholders are obsessed with the idea that there of being victims. They love this idea that they're victims of a media conspiracy, which is hilarious because they are the, the beneficiaries of so much media incredulity for years. I mean nobody nobody looked at mosque and said, can you really do all those things until recently, now, of course they don't like it. I one of the remarks of something about, you know, it's crazy. The media talks about you is if you're about to go bankrupt, and he says, you know, of course, we're not that's just insane. Except not too long ago, everyone thought they would need to do that. They were running on a cash and must claim they weren't. And then after they had a quarter or they got some free cash flow. He came out and said, yeah, we were only a couple of weeks away from running out of cash. So they wanna have it both ways. It's really nutty. And to me, it's the kind of stock where I wouldn't take a real position in it either way. Because on the one hand you have a CEO who's very comfortable saying things that are not true. And you have a lot of other executives leaving the company probably related to that on the other hand, you have this rabid shareholder fan base. That makes the stock whip Cy it's completely detached from fundamentals. It's all about this crazy personality, not for me. You just reminded me of. The Alex give new documentary that was on HBO and for for those who haven't seen it. It's a it's a fabulous bit of documentary filmmaking about theranos, and Elizabeth homes. And one of the things that. Was noteworthy to me in that was the opening of the documentary. That was a decent bit of information about Thomas, Edison, and sort of, you know, sort of tracing the line of the Silicon Valley, fake to you make it mentality back to Thomas Edison, and saying, you know, Edison did a fair amount of that. Like, there's, you know and, and, and that's, that's a tried and true practice that, you know, didn't didn't start with Elizabeth homes. It didn't start with the Elon Musk. And you know that, that kind of thing goes on all that being said they report earnings second quarter report is scheduled to come at the end of July. It really seems like on the times when tesla has come out with, like a legitimately, encouraging slash great earnings report. A lot of that other stuff just disappear. So and by the way, I'm like you, I don't own shares. I would never know millionaire short stock. I'm on the sidelines just watching all of this play out Noddy and. I just sort of think, to myself. Well, you know, no one ever gotten trouble for walking up to bat and hitting home run. And if they don't, if they come out at the end of July and have some blog quarter, and that, then that helps. Well, of course you have to do it. Yeah, but, you know, the miracle quarter was it was to a large degree, and it wasn't really spoken about at the time. The cash flow quarter was was a artifact of really massaging working capital and calling in some favors. And so you wonder can actually keep doing that. They raised money following the miracle quarter because they needed it. So the suggests that they couldn't keep doing that. It's not easy to build cars. It's not easy to build cars, and you also tell everyone you're going to build self driving electric trucks and all of this other stuff. So maybe they pull it off. I really hope the industry goes, but they have a lot more competition, coming from all the other manufacturers, and those manufacturers are not stupid.

Today's indicator is to that is how many miles it is from one side of forty second street to the other so across Manhattan, the horizontally, so this is deep midtown. The beating heart of overcrowded New York, forty second street goes by Grand Central station time square port authority bus terminal. It is one of the most heavily traffic streets in the. Yeah. This two miles roughly twelve blocks is a treacherous stretch. So treacherous as Dr I discovered some calves will not even drive it. It's a nonstarter for some cabs. But we finally did find a heroic cabdriver who would take us Muhammed Sharif. He's been driving taxi in Manhattan for about six months. Now, what is it like driving a New York? It's. Restarting time, we're gonna see how long it takes us to get cross town, and it is four thirty five pm definitely rush hour. So this congestion pricing plan was passed by the New York legislature. But it won't be put in place for a couple of years. We asked Muhammad if he'd heard about it. What do you think about that? I'm not sure you would say would lectured us at fake or that like to make more money. How much? Actually, it's both. According to Bruce Schaller, he's a public transportation consultant here in New York. Do you think it's a good idea for New York? Yes. Reduced congestion the city because charge people some people will decide to take the bus to come in and said driving, and the Secondly, it raises very badly needed revenue for public transportation. We've had what we call a subway crisis for the trains are overcrowded. There's a lot of work to be done. And we need the funding to do that a lot of funding. It's estimated that New York will need to spend tens of billions of dollars to fix the subway system and congestion pricing has proven itself to be a really fast effective way to raise money says Bruce places like Singapore, and Stockholm do it London rolled out congestion pricing. And they've seen speeds increased by thirty percent checking in were just passing Grand Central station. We have been in. Cam for six minutes, not bad. It's been a nice, right? Honestly, making pretty good time. There's still plenty of details that need to get ironed out. Not least of which is just how much is this toll going to cost New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo suggested a flat fee per car per day of about eleven or twelve bucks and twenty five dollars for trucks. But there will be some exemptions. The state has already approved breaks for emergency vehicles for people with disabilities and other groups are asking for exemptions. As well delivery truck drivers, livery cab drivers motorcyclists police officers, and that could really affect how much money the congestion pricing plan brings in and at least in Muhammad's view. If all these guys get exemptions. It's not gonna help traffic at all or raise much money. Right now, we're in a very familiar part of town right by the new York Public Library and Bryant park where the New York office of NPR's high indicate high NPR IMP are. Yeah.

Hit fifty eight homers to lead the major leagues he batted three fifteen scored one hundred forty three runs drove in one hundred forty seven and had an opium of one point one to two if that means anything to you, if it doesn't just know that it's very very good. He meant something close to everything to Jewish Americans. Joe DiMaggio with talion Americans, but more. So Hank Greenberg was the Hebrew hammer despite suffering all sorts of anti semitic, prejudice and abuse. He never ran away from his identity, even when people freaked out when his Detroit Tigers lost game when he sat out for young Kapoor in every Jewish kid pouring over the box score in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, while pouring milk over the morning cereal. All the old timers shouting baseball. And Yiddish over the squealing brakes of the elevated trains and canal street new the only reason Hank Greenberg led the league in walks that same year was because no one. Would give them anything to hit. Because no one wanted to do to break, babe. Ruth's homerun record. The your hand Greenberg. Hit fifty eight homers. There was another Jewish hero known for his own astounding Affleck feats, though, his fame didn't extend much beyond the orbit. But if you grew up in a cold, water, flat and flatbush or remembered waking up to the sounds of guys selling pickles and Shmatko outside your tenement window and riverton. You knew the mighty atom. The beginning of his story wasn't all that different from your own. He was born Joseph Greenstein in Poland. He had come to America fleeing -program found work where he could which in his case turned out to be Galveston, Texas, the oilfields in. That's where his story it starts differentiate a touch from the standard tale of Jewish. European migration in the early twentieth century. His boss became obsessed with his wife Leah and wanted to get Greenstein out of the picture. So we shot him ten paces right between the eyebrows. And it did not kill him. Not only. Did it not kill him? The bullet it smushed. The doctors went into retrieve it and found the bullet right under his skin flattened against his skull in Joseph Greenstein little guy barely five four gifted with an apparently Petr naturally card. Head found a calling. Hit the vaudeville circuit told his story intense in fields and small towns but kids touch scar. And he built out his act by building up his body. He became the mighty atom strongman the compact package with remarkable bow who drove nails through would with his fists, bent, straight metal rods into hardships who broke chains with his bare hands and who among us would deny his fans, the metaphorical pleasures watching a fellow Jew break chains with your hands. In the nineteen thirty eight the year. Hank Greenberg hit fifty eight home runs and walked hundred nineteen times. The mighty atom was packing them. In theaters all over New York.

Visit WWW dot Lincoln dot com slash S. Be powered by Intel. The blockchain is coming for Wall Street from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. In twenty eighteen ICO's or initial coin offerings were the hot new thing in startup fundraising. Accompany could raise money by selling you, a little bit of value or equity in the form of digital coin. That is kind of like a bitcoin but specific to that company ICO's raised something like twenty two billion dollars in two thousand eighteen we think it's hard to know because the whole practice was totally unregulated. A lot of ICO's turned out to be scams. The SEC started finding celebrities like Floyd, Mayweather and DJ Calot over sketchy paid promotions for ICO's. It got a little weird. And now, it's regulation time. And that means that future ICO's and their digital coins might start to look a lot more like good old fashioned stock except traded on the blockchain, and that has big ramifications for Wall Street, Kristen howls, a partner with the law firm, FOX Rothschild. She helps companies create an ICO the SEC started to really crack down on this last year large. Really, I think because of massive fraud and theft and with this action people that have had to shift their pro choice to this ICO two point. Oh, also called a security token offering where they split this token idea into two things they issue stock as part one of this. And then part two is they may be they don't have to go. Have this token that does everything but stock and so on the first part of that it's issuing stock in blockchain form, and then it will trade on the blockchain. So that you would buy and sell it as though you were buying bitcoin. But in this case, it would be, you know, Kristen coin. Yes. And no, so yes, in the sense that you will buy and sell on an exchange, but you won't buy and sell these on the current exchanges that trade, for instance, bitcoin and all these other tokens that are still out there because those exchanges are not licensed trade securities. So a lot of really big players, including Goldman Sachs, and NASDAQ and a whole bunch of other people are in the process of building token security exchanges. Interesting. So I'm hearing you say this, and it sounds like there's functionally no difference between trading secure token and trading. A stock accept the possibility that the company itself is not technically public. There's a couple of things there. So on the trading side. I would go out on a limb to predict that all-stock will be traded in some way related to blockchain or or whatever the next best technology is because it's superior to what we're. Doing. Now, you can have a lot better transparency in the market in two stock pricing volume. You could also potentially eliminate some of the metal people where you don't actually need all these these folks in the middle, which of course, brings the resistance to change because broker dealers and others have a vested interest in a system, but we can have a much more seamless actually transparent stock trading mechanism using blockchain Kristen howls partner with the law firm, FOX Rothschild. Now, the SEC has clearly said it thinks digital tokens from companies are securities, but it hasn't issued any formal rules. Just yet. And now for some related links. What's kind of doubly interesting about this idea of ICO's going legit as these so-called security tokens and potentially changing the way Wall Street works, and maybe even becoming the future of stock trading. Is that kind of everything about bitcoin and the blockchain was conceived to be just the opposite of all of that. And the bitcoin community feels that part of what really killed the ICO. Yes. In addition to the scams and the fraud, which everyone admits where a problem was the threat of regulation, which is what we're now seeing and that in fact, that's kind of a bad thing because I see os were a much more democratic way for potential startups to raise money, they didn't have to go through venture capital, which has all these problems with access and diversity geography, and of course, centralization and now the same old gatekeepers get to keep all the power.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. A Molly would. All this week. We're partnering with seen it reviews. Talking about the big trends in consumer technology as we head into the holiday shopping season. And it appears that the smart home is finally a thing for a lot more people in two thousand seventeen almost twenty five million smart speakers were sold, according to the consumer Technology Association. So far this year nineteen million more smart speakers have already shipped and holiday shopping has just begun. And once these gadgets are in a house they can act like a gateway drug people buy more connected devices. So they can have Alexa, or Google control everything in the house. Rich Brown is an executive editor at c net reviews, covering appliances, and smart homes. He said this year smart devices are migrating into the kitchen now that WI FIS a little bit more ubiquitous, and that frankly that technology's better on on the side there may be a little more for real. You know, I'm not sure how many people are actually using these voices systems. To help out in the kitchen beyond basic stuff like set a timer or make a shopping list, but we have found that the recipe function with Google speakers. Especially in the Google smart. Displays is actually really good. Like the way it responds to your voice commands is actually pretty intuitive or it can pause when you're working through a recipe can pick up where you left off when you resume the conversation is actually very a very natural way to work with the machine to make something in the kitchen. What about the the privacy debate are seen it users coming and saying, okay, sure. But I'm only going to buy the one that doesn't have a camera built in all the time privacy is huge. And that's probably the thing we hear about most and reader comments. Right. So the Facebook portal video chat device that one. I mean, come on Facebook put that out there. I'm not sure what they were hoping for. But anybody who's sort of predicted that there would be a lot of consumer resistance, and the reviews would be critical given Facebook's own privacy issues me, I think they call that one. Interestingly Google has that that can. Free display like all the home hub that just put out a month or two ago. And that one has all the functions of the other smart displays, but no camera. But you know, the privacy concerns, we only have these companies for the most part at their word in terms of what they do with your data, and how will they protect it. So it's leap of faith for consumers for sure. How about some of these other sort of nascent parts of the smart home, like smart locks is that something that is appealing to the mainstream. Consumer or does it just mean, you're also giving tech support along with your gift? Yeah. I would be really wary about giving anybody a smart lock as a gift unless you're you're pretty good at installing that kind of thing. If you're thinking about other smart, home, stuff, smart security, and smart cameras. Those are pretty popular as a category in general, and the cameras are really pretty easy us kind of plugged them in get them on the internet. And then you can view it over your phone. There's no real installation that needs to go unless you want to attach to a fixed point on your wall or something.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. It is thanksgiving week and the official start of the twenty eighteen holiday shopping season. So all this week. We're partnering with the online tech reviews and news sites c net to talk about the big trends in consumer technology this year net did a holiday survey asking its users what they're thinking about when it comes to tech. And this year the research bears out what the retail industry has already been saying it's going to be a big year for shopping, especially in tech Lindsey Turrentine is the editor in chief of c net reviews. She said it's not just about giving gifts. Either sixty percent of the survey's respondants plan to shop for themselves. Why all the self gifting well in a word sales things are cheap. I mean, that's really it. You know, what you want? Everybody knows what they want. And then you see this parade of cyber week. Black Friday cyber Monday deals. It's really hard. Not to be like, well, actually, I kind of want that expensive television. And I'm not gonna ask mom and dad for that. This is the moment. It's never going to be less expensive so nominal buy it for myself. Yep. The survey also found that twenty five percent of shoppers plan to spend more on tech this year is that do you think also because tech is getting cheaper. Or is it just more mainstream? I think it's just more mainstream. So we found that more than ever people want to receive for instance, smart watches, it used to be that cell phones were the top of our list now smart watches or at the top of our list. And we're finally reaching a point especially with apple watch. Let's be honest where it has reached mass adoption lots of people have them. It seems like a, you know, a quote unquote, normal gift not necessarily a nerdy gift. It's just a gift. Was there? Anything in the survey that particularly surprised you. I think that it is interesting how many people want to give or do give subscriptions to Amazon prime. It's a very specific surprise. But it's also a very specific thing. And we it's not uncommon to give subscriptions to things. An easy gift to give especially at the last minute. But we found that the most common subscription gift for people in our survey to give is a subscription to Amazon prime. So it's very meta. Like, oh, give you a subscription to something that allows you to give to other people. Let's talk about this sort of the industry broadly. Are there any surprising shakeouts with manufacturers? Are there brands that are pulling ahead that you didn't see coming or or companies that you're looking at the survey results and saying like, maybe you need to worry more than you thought. You know, I would say that in the smart home category. Google is catching up to Amazon, maybe even faster than we expected to Alexa, really was the stand in for smart home speakers in the past Google's catching up really quickly. We've seen them named. I think that apple well, obviously, a common gift brand. We are seeing a lot of interest in non apple phones, Google pixels. Getting a lot of attention. So we're seeing some up and comers. Start to pull ahead a little bit. Lindsey Turrentine is the editor in chief of C net reviews, you can find links to that holiday shopping survey at our website marketplace, tech dot org tomorrow.

"lincoln dot" Discussed on Something You Should Know
"Lincoln dot com. Slash w. o. n. d. e. r. y.. So make you mentioned the Chem trail conspiracy theory in, and that brings up a question. Is there ever some little grain of truth or some way that somebody logically came to this idea or as in the case of the Chem trails, a conspiracy theory with somebody just laying on a grassy hill one day, look up at the sky and they saw a plane and they saw the white stuff coming out the back and thought, hey, hey, wait a minute. I have an idea. I think that could be chemicals trying to control the environment. I mean, is it that kooky or is there often something there? A lot of conspiracy theories arise from genuine concern. The people have and the Cantrell conspiracy theory, I think ties in with concerns of people have about polluting the environment. They look up and they see the contrails which just clouds made a world of Apor and they think that. Some kind of craft exhaust or some kind of spraying going on. And yet obviously concerning to people, a loss of people concerned about pollution about the environment and these concerns kind of latch onto these conspiracy theories and amplify them. So it's very easy to point to a controversial in the sky and say, look, pollution, we should do something about it, and then people ask, well, what is that? And then they say, oh, it's a cab trial is being sprayed by the government and then the it gives legs to the conspiracy theory. If there's a real concern behind it, that is a big jump though to go from. Well, that's pollution too. That's a government conspiracy. That's a big jump yet it is. But if you already predisposed to believe that they're conspiracies than is not that big of a jump, if you believe in one conspiracy theory, it's actually very easy to get sucked into a different conspiracy theory, and that there are less. Nls conspiracy theories are very low level ones. Like for example, burying JFK assassination theories, and then this very, very complex and extreme ones like the flat of and things like the nine, eleven and Chem trails sit in the middle. So someone say a suspicious about whether the government was involved in nine, eleven than it quite easy for them to make that shift and say, oh, perhaps the government is also spraying things out of planes in the the the flow right conspiracy theory as being around for over one hundred years, which is the Floride is being added to the drinking water in order to subdue the population to poison. The population various forms of that have been around for a really long time and vaccination conspiracy theories of being around for a very long time. So people believe the vaccine's poison is not that much of a stretch for them to think that the exhaust planes is poison. Well. What I was going to ask you to is, do people who believe in a conspiracy theory usually believe in a lot of them or is it that everything else is fine, but this one things got me bugged. Well, I arrange things on a spectrum and someone who believes associate conspiracy theory on the spectrum will almost always believe every single conspiracy theory that below that on the spectrum. If one believes in Chem trials, they will absolutely believe nine eleven was a control demolition. If someone believes the the sandy hook shootings was staged, they will believe that nine eleven was a control demolition, and they will probably believe in the Cantrell conspiracy theory as well. They definitely is this relation between light belief in woollen belief in others, but he's always, they always have one is that fright favorite conspiracy theory? And that's the one that they talk about the most and is generally the one that's the most extreme on the spectrum. One of the reasons I might suspect that conspiracy theory. Were somewhat of a recent phenomenon is the role of the media and movies and television, and do they play a role in perpetuating these? Actually, if you look at the move is about conspiracy theories like including the movie, this cold conspiracy theory and all the x. files shows and things like that. The conspiracy theorists are almost invariably correct. So this this kind of misconception. The Hollywood is portraying a conspiracy theorist as being these kooks. Obviously, they seem like that kooks in the movie, but at the end of the movie is revealed that they were in fact correct. All almost argue that this some kind of conspiracy to make conspiracy theorists look good..
