"Are the daily tech headlines for Thursday, march 17th, 2022. Happy Saint Patrick's Day, I'm Tom Merrick. Google announced its annual developer conference, Google IO will take place may 11th and 12th as a virtual event viewable through YouTube, as well as IO adventure in VR. The May 11th keynote from Sundar Pichai will be streamed from the shoreline amphitheater. Amazon closed its acquisition of movie studio MGM Thursday. MGM holds the rights to nearly 4000 films and 17,000 TV episodes. There's no word on how MGM, if it will be integrated into Amazon Studios, will be integrated into Amazon Studios. MGM franchises include James Bond, rocky and the pink panther movies, among many others. Samsung announced new models in its galaxy a series phones, the a 53 5G adds 5G, of course, as well as better display visibility and some photo editing features. It starts at $50 lower than the previous version did, beating inflation. The Samsung galaxy a 53 comes to the U.S. April 1st for $450. Samsung also announced the galaxy a 33. It will end up being sold at a price somewhere between the a 53 and the $250 a 13. Netflix is conducting a test of two new features meant to combat password sharing with people who don't live in the same household as you. One feature will let people take their profiles, including recommendations and viewing histories to a new account. A second feature will let a count holders add up to two out of household members to an account for an extra fee of around $3 a month. Those extra members would have their own logins and passwords. The features are launching first in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru. Counterpoint research estimates that 5G phones outsold four G phones in January for the first time. The margin was much bigger in some markets, 5G had 84% of all four G and 5G phones in China in Western Europe that percentage was 76%. And in North America it was 73%. Cheaper 5G smartphones are driving the increases with Xiaomi, oppo and vivo all offering 5G phones at or around the $200 price point. Apple had the bestselling 5G phone with 37% of sales. Samsung accounted for 12%. Ukrainian president Vladimir zelensky signed a law Wednesday clarifying the status of cryptocurrency assets in the country. Crypto exchanges now have specific legal authority to operate. They'll be regulated by the national commission on securities. The bill passed parliament February 17th after the president had rejected a previous version back in September. The ministry of finance is working on amendments to the country's tax and civil codes to fully launch the market for virtual assets. Writer sources say Alibaba and Tencent are preparing for layoffs in the tens of thousands as the company's adjust to new regulatory rulings in China. Alibaba has already started letting some employees go. The crackdown, along with a slowing economy, has slowed both companies growth, Tencent has around 94,000 employees in Alibaba around 39,000. If you've ever been confused about whether Chrome OS should have a space between chrome NOS, be confused no more. A recent code change from Google has clarified the matter, changing about 1000 instances of the name to not have a space. This branding change is meant to unify the name. The open-source chromium OS will also eliminate the space. Android auto has added a check to see if your USB cable and port are working properly. So if you can't connect, you can figure out if that's the problem. USB startup diagnostics can tell you if the problem is in the USB system and whether the problem is the cable or not. This can help identify damage to or incompatible cables. Finally, Wednesday, an NBA matchup between the Dallas Mavericks and Brooklyn Nets was broadcast on ESPN using 3D volumetric videos, the first time that has been done for a full game broadcast. It had only been done for highlights before. Canon will use its free viewpoint video system or fvv system with over a hundred data capture cameras, positioned around the basketball court to create that live sports broadcast, merged with multi dimensional footage to create 6 virtual cameras. It ended up looking something like a video game.

So what kind of poker greatness you've been chasing in this world wind of a few months last time you're on you know you talk about your new agency above the and there's more things have been added to your plate since then. Yes it's pretty wild man. So let's see how have i been chasing over greatness. Let's see on the poker side actually started playing live tournaments again We'll talk about that later but Getting into some of these world poker tour main main tour events has been something. I've really aspired to over the last few years Since i started my actual poker training back again and Was fortunate in fortunate enough this year to have a deep run at the w. p. t. seminal hardrock tournament Finishing thirtieth out of like twenty five hundred or something so it was like the great experience to get that deep. You know inexperienced that. Because i've never been that deep you know And it's a different ballgame and So that was great. I'm gonna fire up a few more here in the next couple of months with world poker tour with online Which we'll talk about. And then also you know for the waso p coming up on the business side. Man is trying to faded spade as much as i can. Try to grow the agency. Which is is ahead of where i thought it would be and the team would be. I told you that tom i could've told you that. The demand is going to be much higher. I think when you as soon as you were describing the idea to me. I was like this makes sense and this giant need in the industry. It's a slow and steady. But it's like it's it's password. I thought it would be after six months. And thanks for saying that man And through that work with the agency A couple of really great things have happened. So one offer darren elias. Who was part of above the felt from a talent perspective. We worked out a deal for him where he is becoming the brand ambassador of the party poker. Us network which. I know you asked me what is that. And we'll get into that and then while that was all going on. You know some of the relationships i built with the people during that process They've asked me to come be a poker marketing consultant for them over the next foreseeable future. And you know help them. What is happening here. Marketing team basically. What they're asking me to do is asked me to come in and craft all new strategic marketing plans for the party poker. us network which is forgot poker online plus bet.

Why the dan what what they told me is when they realize like my corporate marketing leadership background in terms of doing this type of like leadership executive work In like the hotel resort industry and technology industry. And then i think they liked the fact that there was a blend of all this entrepreneurial experience and the poker industry over the last four years and i think just how got along during the discussions about bringing darren on as a brand ambassador. I think that all came together. And they were transparent with me and said you know we have this need the company and rethink. You could fill it. And i said you know what i would love to have that experience with you guys and let's talk about making that

Holding Pocket Tens and Flop

"Talk about some poker Flop we've got pocket tens to lamps. We raised twenty and we got called. The flop is nine for deuce rainbow. So there's a forty seven going in In the from law what do you think about the spot here. I think i would probably go ahead in bet large. I do think check raises kind of fun and it can be effective against players. Who c- who does too much in this situation. Bud one three limber. I just don't trust as player to bet enough. So i think we should be putting ourselves now a little bit bigger because i think that this is not this is not a hand benefits as much from like keeping over card type hans in play so if we had. Let's say queens making bit smaller because let's opponent has like king jack Votes that there's some downside obviously with king but there's also some serious upside with jack With hens that doesn't that dynamic doesn't exist in the same way so i would be targeting just our opponents pairs mostly expecting quite a few unpaid hands to fold and then having a high confidence in us having the best hand going forward. I do think we have to be a little careful about like not sure that i'm trying to over bet turning river in member. Dvr four hundred effective so Of ten ultimately. I think we can probably just size to get all in. There's not much much better to do Like i do think if we were a little bit deeper we might want to size up on the flop and then better a more conservative amount on the turn and river mike. Let's say fifty percent pop. Just because i think if we four hundred one. Three games like can't be a lot. I mean it's philly. So i guess that players are a little bit looser. Her used Losing four hundred dollars in these environments. It depends a little bit. You're playing against like are getting stacks in here is a huge pot or is that like one of the mental. Like if you're in the casino in dc the mgm. That seems to be a game where this would be a big pot to get here. But it like the jack in cleveland. You know getting four hundred dollars in in this situation in like a one three game. A lot of the reds there in recreational players are not that rich porn stars think took change end. You might expect like a nine or a pair of aids or something like that to fold At some point the hand in if you are all in as the aggressor you might be facing calling range which has been pretty bad shape.

"So you're you can buy company just for the knowledge since what most startups get bought just because some of the company just needs her knowledge. So i'm and they have a lot of experience in the movie business and i don't know about you i've i've enjoyed some of prime's content from videos content but i feel like at times. They still need a little bit more than a little bit more like leadership. I guess a little bit more direction. Just because i feel like prime video just doesn't have like this veteran resources are i feel like they don't They had this big blockbuster. Right of michael jordan and it kind of was a flop story. Wise it just was very weak is just like okay. Attach a big star to this property. We think it's going to have a bunch of lake shooting up stuff and it's gonna be great awesome and it really fell flat and some of their other original content right Feel flat at times or it might be good but doesn't it's not as attention grabbing it doesn't it doesn't get as viral as maybe a disney plus show or a netflix type. Show like bruton. Blue ball. Sudden right very viral and a few like executives at mgm can add that type of maturity to prime video in really bolster their knowledge in that area. What are your thoughts there of it. Also being a talent acquisition i think there is a talent acquisition aspect of it. I mean mark. Burnett is one of the major producers behind a lot of those super hit shows that i was referring to earlier in. He's over at mgm. Whether or not he stays is the question. I think that's one of the big questions that hasn't been answered. Which is what will happen to the leadership over at mgm. Because i'm not sure that as far as the actors go in the directors i think. Mgm doesn't really have those exclusive deals as much as some of the other larger studios but that's not to say that they don't have plenty of deals of people who could generate amazon some money when it comes to greeting great content and i think the the back catalogue of kind of a lot of these let me say this when it comes to content in general obviously the original content that is scripted is going to be the stuff that a lot of people always talk about but a lot of the content that people tend to rewatch over and over again as we've heard about so many times is the unscripted content. The stuff that is you know very very well known to be on discovery plus for example that content is stuff that s. If you watched it live you're gonna find stuff out and you could hear about what could have happened on the show after the fact but there are still people who go and rewatch this content when it comes to mgm a lot of the content that they produce is very similar in the vein of discovery. Plus or i should say a lot of the content. That's very successful for them. Is that type of content..

"Cable companies to keep time warner to keep were properties on certain cable packages when it comes to the tbs tnt the turner stations and those. They have sports. They're not really in jeopardy of getting pulled from you know packages because of that but when you start a having the same exact news content releasing on a streaming service that suddenly is a reason for people to not sign up as talked about many times in the past a lot of people sign up for live television offerings specifically for two purposes sports and news and while one media has access to obviously a ray of news programming array of sports programming. That's the two things that they're not really putting on the streaming service of hbo max at this point not to say that that won't change. I honestly believe that that will completely change. After the discovery merger potentially takes place. And i think that we're going to see a big change when it comes to stuff like that happening even if they have to go the route of creating original content specifically for hbo. Max isn't the same content that you see on cnn. If you were to flip to the channel through your cable provider. I think the big thing. Is that the cnn service is. They're looking at this. Well you could buy this if you were pain. Let's say six seven eight dollars even ten dollars. I think ten dollars be too high but even if it was five dollars a month to access cnn content it was the exact same content that you could access through your cable provider. I think there are people who would potentially sign up because four or five dollars you basically have access to a news array of news content but you can add that onto something and i think that by getting this started and getting this underway. It could potentially get put into a potential tear for each fuel. Max if they go that route because we have heard rumors about discovery content originally being an added tier that could be added into. Hp max similar to the way that disney has these bundles with hulu on espn. Plus you could see something like that happening with potentially the cnn service. The discovery content once the discovery were media merger actually takes place so this is another rumor that we've talked about many times in the past now. It's actually something that is fully you know one hundred percent actually in the planning stages a c in plus streaming service I agreed to nephew. Like this is a weird move I think it's good that there is at least talks of implementing some type of streaming service content..

"Only by buying mgm amazon is getting one of hollywood's most storied studios so mgm is about as old as hollywood. It was founded in the silent era at one point. It studio chief would brag that had more stars than the heavens because it really came to be known as the premier movie factory. I mean they produce the wizard of oz. We're not in kansas any singing in the rain in the rain rocky it was the studios studio in recent years. Though it's really not these studio at once was i mean. I don't know if any studio is sort of representative of that. Golden era but gm operates out of an office building. They do not have a big story lot anymore about a decade ago. They had to file for bankruptcy protection. They've been known for certainly some some bigger titles in recent years they produced the tv. Show the handmaid's tale so they're certainly operating and and working but i think the general consensus has been that they have been a little adrift and that they were sort of a prime takeover target. So what does amazon getting out of. Mgm so i think definitely the fact that you absorb a library of thousands of titles in an mgm's case you have some of the best known movies and characters ever produced well. Mgm sold the rights decades ago to a lot of those classic films. Like wizard of oz. Its current catalog includes tv. Series like the handmaid's tale and fargo and big movie hits like rocky legally blonde and the biggest prize. James bond if you're a producer and you get your hands on the mgm library suddenly you have all these pre-existing titles that come essentially with built in marketing that you can use for reboots and so on the bond franchise comes with a wrinkle that might make it harder to make those reboots amazon will control the films. The company won't have total creative control over the character. James bond is very interestingly controlled by two step siblings. Who live in. London named michael wilson barbara broccoli and they inherited the creative control of james bond from barbara broccoli. His father who was a producer of the older films and since then have really shepherded that character and kept a very tight leash on him to there is a reason. You don't see a lot of james bond tv shows. I actually don't see any. You really have kept him restrained and not allowed people to you know. Throw his face on a bunch of souvenir. Martini glasses or anything like that. I mean there's really been very little outside of the films and the amazing one thousand nine hundred eighty s golden video game. One of the best games ever truly truly incredible. I think about it all the time. But there's really been very little exploitation. You could say of the james bond character and so when amazon. Mgm a big looming question was. Are they going to get their hands on. Bond did some reporting on this and it turns out. Bond is probably going to stay under the creative control of michael wilson barbara broccoli and that most likely means that they will stay the course on releasing the movies and being very strategic and very discerning when it comes to how this character is used it. Sounds like one of the most valuable assets. That amazon is getting in this deal. They're not really going to be able to control in the way that they may want to doesn't sound like it. By the fact that james bond films will come up as an option to view whenever you're scrolling through prime video that counts for something to because as we were saying earlier i mean no one needs to be introduced to james bond so it immediately turns the service into a more premium offering. So there's been talk of tech companies buying a hollywood studio for a while. Why do you think it's actually happening now. I think it's happening now because we are looking ahead at a summer of some real potential mega-deals all based around this idea that the streaming wars are going to be fought in the next couple of years and there will only be a few winners and you have to bulk up fast. If you wanna compete in that space so amazon i think is sort of the the biggest player yet in this new wave. We're going to see of consolidation and a real focus on trying to essentially grab as much land as you can. What does this deal between amazon. And mgm say about the future of hollywood in the future of movie studios as a business you know. I think the deal has inspired some wistfulness out here. because i think you can't ignore the symbolism of mgm a studio as iconic tied to the golden era of moviemaking being absorbed by a company that is the biggest in some cases richest company in the world that really is using this entertainment as a way to sell shipping subscriptions. I think the romantics here in los angeles find it as much as simple as anything of how hollywood's theatrical days. It's days of the big screen and the mega movie stars in the larger.

The big determination if mgm had just gone ahead and spent the one hundred ninety two thousand dollars on a sprinkler system. None of this would have happened according to David Mares who handled the investigation for the National Fire Protection Association quote with. With sprinklers, it would've been a one or two sprinkler fire, and we never would have heard about. Over thirteen hundred lawsuits were filed against one hundred eighteen different companies involved with the MGM Grand Hotel money from the companies went into a two hundred and twenty three million dollar settlement fund, which was distributed to the victims and their families within three years at the fire. MGM One hundred five million dollar settlement was the largest and with that settlement. No negligence was ever admitted.

After the MGM Fire Safety Officials in Clark County prepared recommendations for updating the fire code that would have led to Nevada having the most rigorous standards in the United States. But. When their proposal was submitted to legislators in the state capital, the regulations failed to gain any traction. Many state officials believe the fire at the MGM grand was a one off rare occurrence, the odds of it happening again where astronomically small plus money talks developers who make massive campaign contributions lobbied hard against regulations that they believe would slow down their business and eat into their profits.
