"I'm wrinkle in it. We've seen in Australia that if you want to go into a seven eleven, for example, they have are they are using on facial recognition software in the stores there politely asking people to remove them ask briefly I think the same goes in banks and stuff so. I mean we will say people try to institutions try to work around it. But at the moment, it isn't it's a new challenge and it's a very fi high way to avoid facial recognition software and technology if you want to. Sorry. If you are thinking about that, you should pick up a mosque. Do you think it's going to be one of those things where technology has to push in different directions wherever. Moves to closer examining is our Elysees is there a sense that the tech industry is recalibrating around? I have I will be completely shocked if the security and surveillance a commercial apparatus does not shift to things that can get around this. Whether it be is is come mentioned. That's always discussions about recognitions via gauge how you how you walk you're walking style, etc I mean, this is a field of technology that has decided it wants to sell the ability to recognize anybody despite. Whether, they want to be recognized or not so I don't think masks will stop them. It's interesting to consider though. That just struck by an investigation I think it was in Baltimore during the black lives matter purchase. There was some footage of people attacking COP CAU-. Don't think the COP had anyone in it and their faces were mostly obscured but it turned out that the cops could track down the person because they'll wearing quite a unique t shirt that won't from itsy. Need him perfect facial recognition systems when you can just have basic on open source intelligence investigations from the COPS. At this point, you mean how this whole new trend of turning your face mosque into fashion accessory with bespoke cloth and whatnot is actually gonNA come out to. Buy a face mask that is to unique if you want to commit a crime, I? Think that's my message. Right Lockwood was. Always, WIFI solutions to getting around these very complex systems and I think the other thing is. Granted sometimes that that these technologies are very accurate and the truth is that there are varying degrees of accuracy. I know that the algorithm that I detested in this or the facial recognition style was. One to one and so that the example that would give is you know when you go to across that, have you pass board and then they compare your face to your passport photo what are they have on file but then the facial recognition Technology style of of what one too many. So for instance, just a camera that survey crowd and try to recognize people. And that's generally gonNA being worse conditions the camera further away different lying that kind of stuff I'm they tend to be significantly more. Inaccurate less accurate than I'm just one to one style, but it hasn't stopped them being using. So we always need to be kind of aware as well that technologies will often be rolled out and and and used by people, but you have to have. I guess the. Just. Take it with a grain of salt. How accurate are they are? That's why nist is kind of looking into this at the moment. But there are many other algorithms which are what less transparent and sorry. Concerning when you might have an police. All businesses using this to make decisions when they can't actually decisions they're making a trusted. All. Right. That is all we have time for. Thank you so much Campbellton from business since Auburn gizmos level have you back on the Arrow Bogle I. Thank you so much joining us back on the show. Thanks knock. Was I right by the way you undisclosed locations times our offices? I mean, my housemates room in the corner of overturned his room. Sorry. I'll let you know if I get back can appear ever again.

"Capital dog while you can right up until the moment. They decapitated doggerel trying to live. This dog should be kept indoors anyway. Have you told the dogs that no I just dug running around in your front yard? What about the white coming in the backyard? I actually think it makes more sense for drug delivery in the backyard. It's more secure on that. I don't like random I draw the line. I also want to know what Elon Musk is gonNA do. Been off podcast. What's soon as he tweets out something. Then that'll be the main focus of everyone's news coverage I want the corona version of the mini-submarine. Go down that route cities. That Alaska back. Yeah I mean it's funny because a lot of the I mean. We died that alphabet the parent company. Have as you say there have been investing in health. A health has been a health. Strictly speaking but but health startups has been really massive growing area in the last couple of years. And it's one of those interesting sort of inflection points where you do expect that all of this investment that is felt very moonshot like over the last couple of years you sort of expect that in moments of crisis this suddenly some of these companies actually suddenly become quite useful. But I guess Terry early days. It's not totally clear on my talk. My face paranoid about guys I. It's not becomes way some of these startups figure into this. And maybe it's because this feels climate on unexpected. I don't know about you but I've never experienced anything like this in my lifetime. Even when swine flu and bud flu happening I don't feel like it. Felt this dial year or this widespread or spreading this quickly though. It's the general overarching sense of anxiety. That I can't remember in my life. I'm the last time I remember. This was in the days after nine eleven and I don't want to comply because obviously a very different about what it has stuck out to me is in some ways. This is my world field simultaneously smaller and much bigger. We're obviously a lot of our is leading a mayor and a half each other right now in some ways. We're all staying away from each other for the betterment of the wider community as we do but at the same time it does feel like this is something that the entire world is facing. I think it's been awhile since we've had something that feels like a really tangible global threat. How climate change notwithstanding I think because of the rise of Social Media and surfing that we're talking about on this show in particular but with the rise social media and what's happened is the only time to communicate with different people from around the world and sharing stories and sharing videos. I feel like there's so much more hype and so much more attention in daily minute by minute. Updates on the status of things that it can cause some degree of anxiety and that is actually something that tech companies are now starting to address whether or not you know on the one hand. They're innovators but maybe they're taking Naples that too you know too much use of their platforms and therefore you are starting to see companies like apple and Google restricting different APPs on their platforms like the store and Google play. Where they're they're actually out there and they're vetting different. Apps to make sure that they're coming from repeatable. Reliable sources therefore not caused widespread panicky further. Do you think that the flow of information now that it is that much is part of? What's making this seem bigger or do you think that this particular virus is spreading very quickly? Mutually exclusive scientifically believe is spreading rapidly three times as fast as a common cold but flu. They're not mutually exclusive. But I do think that one influence the others anxiety I think there are obviously the the baseline medical facts of how far is spreading. And I should say if you listen to the medical facts of Diet. You should be listening to corona cost with documents. One right now for all the most up-to-date information on the current virus but talking about the effect it's having on a socially. I don't think you can ignore the impact of social media because you've got celebrities posting high tested positive on instagram. You've got people posting kind of board in self-isolation Corentin. You've got people on particularly twitter. I've noticed borderline lambasting each other and telling each other off about now. You should be doing this. You should be doing this. You should be doing this. In some of that advice. He's correct science but it's the level of intensity with which people seem to WanNa tell each other what to do and again some of it rooted in fact and science and quite right but it's the compound effect of it strikes me as being quite unhealthy. Well Yeah I. I've been noticing a lot of people who do not have any medical training kind of Cherry picking advice and then implementing that advice on other people rather than directing people to the medical advice itself so that becomes a really difficult pile on effect. Well because you have people saying like I went and visited my parents who are bit Oda and then other people jumping on saying you can't do that. Your risk of killing them. Yeah I mean. She's a bit insane. I mean and and again I think some of that is rooted in science that we understand but I think it does speak a little bit to how we communicate with each other in times of massive cross and because most of the communication we're talking about on facebook and twitter and Instagram is public. You'll being taty conversations that you might not have been twenty years ago when they were fine calls text messages. I think that adds to Aligarh of anxiety is a bit of a catchall adds to Aligarh of uncomfortable MOMS download.

Interesting art at the moment that we're recording schools remained open and it's been a fascinating story about the use of facial recognition technology in schools particularly. Melvin Stop Nick. What exactly is going on? Melbourne's Tab called learn which specializes in facial recognition technology predominantly for the classroom. So they're tech enables teach shows is what they say they will. Teachers do rule calls much faster and more efficiently and more effectively. A large proportion of classroom team is dedicated. Rule apparently not that I can remember that in my dear say but this star up promises to install these cameras in your in. Your Kid's classrooms and be able to better keep track of them throughout the day. Obviously huge amounts of air security can sense you in previously consistency especially about filming children.

"If you put it out in the world it'll come back to you. I mean the funny thing about Bernie Sanders as Benson is already feels like a piece of popular culture. Like feels like a character from Seinfeld like he's already. There's something about him. He feels really conversant with pop culture. Anyway and then of course there is a very well established fan base that I think also to some extent feel wronged about what happened in two thousand sixteen as a whole bunch of elements fade into Bernie that I think a quite unique as well. But it'd be interesting to say Mike Bloomberg sort of average having maybe not the right word but it's like building something trying to build it with a lot of money. Yeah well you could argue. The biggest mistake he made was going so hard so early and getting twenty accounts. Toll have the same name on the same day. Obviously that was also part of his intention because everyone talked about it but if he wanted to be subtle about it he could have probably dripped out. One awake one a month and no one would've ever found out like yeah to go way back to when we start talking about this and we were saying how do we identify memes that also advertisements for politicians. It's like we can't even have. We can't even identify advertisements advertisements at the moment. Like it's we're we're way back we're not at the forefront of this kind of change in the way we look at means all right so we're all skirt and we'll take it and that's fine show always ends up.

"Is the most powerful digital shield on earth. Yes. This week on download this show special conversation episode about the great firewall of China, how internet censorship in the People's Republic, actually works, and how it changes the Chinese people's relationship with information. What can they see what can't they see? And that same technology is now being exported other countries around the world. This is your guide to the week in media, technology and culture. My name is Marc Fennell woke up. Download this shy. Yes, indeed. Welcome to a special conversational episode. Download this shower. We are in conversation with guy for the name of James Griffiths now James Griffiths covers technology in politics for CNN international in Hong Kong. And he's written a mass raid, book is called the great firewall of China and it details the history and the development of the internet in China, we did record this interview a few weeks ago, certainly before the huge news, there's come out of Hong Kong, and even though we don't touch on the events, I do still think law of what is discussed in this program informs that news he goes James walk into the shar. Thank you. This is gonna sound like a dump lies to stop. But exactly, how does the great firewall of China work? Okay. Well, it's not it's not too complicated. Actually, I mean, if you think about the incident as being those are kind of global in snow, which is the, you know, the transatlantic, cables and the stuff that takes it from countries country. And then you've got your. Internal incidents in the country's the strolling in, you know, you go to your SP or internet service provider and things like that. And then at some point there has to be a switch between the national incident and the international incident. I'm what China's done with the great firewall is at that point where it switches, it's got some technology that can inspect the traffic that's going across it and look for websites that should be blocked or content that should be blocked. So, you know, if you're inside China and you try and load, Google dot com, Twitter dot com. That's the ino- the query goes to the point where it reaches its nationals network. Great firewall is great for says, no stops it. And it doesn't go any further. What was leading in your book? Is it actually goes deeper than that, to tell me about daypack inspection concept, I think people might not necessarily be familiar with. But it seems quite gay the absolutely. So I mean in the early days of the file, it literally was just kind of a blacklist. So, you know, it would have to be your L's, or maybe IP, addresses, that would be banned. And but now it's more sophisticated in that it can actually inspect the traffic itself for something that. Should be banned. But maybe that website isn't particularly flagged. So if you have a topic that is completely controversial and forbiddens talk about in China's the religious movement. Falun Gong is a very good example. That's just there is no tolerance of any discussion of gong so it can inspect the traffic. So if, if the is normally blocked, but they write some story about gong. It shouldn't need a human to kind of go and say, we need to block that story that deep packet inspection and the various other pieces of AI that look at the traffic across the fire will they should be able to spot it, I the flag, it's a person or just block it like protectively, one of the more interesting things the whole book is interesting, but one of the really interesting things I found was the target of what the Chinese government actually want to block access to. And I would've assumed it was straight up and down Falun Gong gentleman square those sorts of things. And of course those miners. As you point out, this idea of Olga Nuys solidarity. And basically trying to do to block access to any conversations that will lead to organize not even resistance, but just like organiz groupings outside of the potty wonder if you could expand.

"Really all those people want is to know how many people are listening through pocket costs apple podcasts and through luminary if that's wrong and links to getting stripped out. It's like, what are we getting from you, those are not big things to ask for if we're giving you an hour of content of a great show, especially when the likes Spotify. Which also, obviously quite bullish about moving into podcasting spice die will keep your notes, and even though spotify's sued if you can have a free platform, and you can have a platform this still gonna send you back that Dada. So the comparisons. Interesting as we look forward. I think it's raising to assume that what we're gonna end up with is like an ecosystem where it's a combination of all three like ad-supported publicly funded in certain markets, and probably some things that move behind pay walls all things that are exclusive to platforms, and that seems to be the thinking out of certainly the Spotify move that they're going to be some things that they are gonna make that are gonna be exclusive to that platform. I think probably end up with high production shows begin names, I think hopefully, someone who listens to a lot of true crime podcast on giving it a you're listening to podcast. I do like the idea. I mean, great example teacher's pet industry Leah that is a lot of work for an investigative journalist. And so maybe we'll say more investigations, and as we talk so much about journalists getting job cuts and media organizations getting funded. This could be a way for some of those people to pop up. Elsewhere news, those kinds of skills elsewhere. So hopefully. My thought is better production and interesting stories that might not have otherwise been told. I think that. For anyone that has subscribed to about cast before you'd probably often encountered the sad to report. This is our last show or just silence for a year or two. And then suddenly they come back and I'd like to see that to stop. And I think the one nine reason that people do cease bit podcast is because it consumes a lot of energy and time, and they would I d like to be doing it as a career if they could and the only real wide to do that. Is to get money in the door. And how do you get money in the door? You get people to pay appetizers or your subscribers and often subscribers willing to the money where their mouth is if they're if they're liking the getting, and so I would hope that it would kind of it would go, someway to ending, you know, these really good poke assists from finishing out. I think we've also sane the model. You know, you mentioned Spotify. We mentioned the model of like music move from like a lot of pirated STA, and how if you told me, I don't know tain fifteen years ago that we'd be paying for music again when people were just downloading willy nilly, that's a big shift that people have to make when that been getting something for free. But if you do it in the right way, then people are willing to make the shift they willing to stop pirating and get services like Netflix or Spotify. I think it has to be the right model and luminary was probably hoping to be that model, but they kinda screwed it up in the first round. Let's see how it proceeds over the next couple of. It's download the show what you're listening to it. Easy guide to the week in media technology and culture in studio, we have been grub from the city morning held and we have Klay rally from the technology website saying that my name is Marc Fennell. It has been called the nice social media network which can into dozen nineteen same contradiction of times. But let's find out it's called tick talk.

"And the next time we looked at how can we make? So think about things like sex are just a sort of human figure form haiku, we make something that's more immersive more embodied that isn't just human like. So we have people doing virtual reality experiences. Doing shoals sensuous Scholes wrapped around you with sensors on could tingle all of your body. We had I find myself lying in a hammock made out of a sleeping bag over some chairs with choose robbed on my body that squeeze me in the big hug, so we had all sorts of really cool things going on since then near the a few more hockey phones that other people have sex tax that people who run worldwide, which is really lovely that other people are doing this. So this quite a growing community insects technology nine it's really lovely to see that is amazing. Just lastly before I let you guard if you could change anything about the dominant conversation, we have about the internet. Section between sex and technology because often it comes down to things like pornography, and occasionally and things like that. But if you could change anything about the way, we talk about the relationship between six technology. How would you change it? I think that I would say don't believe the hype they've been so many headlines around sex robots that are just deliberately very provocative. But also completely off the wall, so all sorts of things and fears worries ideas of people being replaced, and when the truth of is there's actually any sex robots there that there's no corporate bucking that this very development in this area. I think people just really have the wrong idea. There's a little judgment around the people who want sex technology in their lives, and people think that it's it's isolated usually man hiding away in a basement somewhere with a robot girlfriend that couldn't be further from the truth. It's it's wonderfully diverse an interesting community. So I'd love to see diversity interesting sex technology, and how has it changed you spending? All this time. Time researching this really fascinating series of intersections. How's it changed the way you think about this area? I think. I've got more and more and more abroad minded as it goes on. I mean, I was I was always pretty pretty open to buy things, but you know station, I keep forgetting other people don't study this conversations. Get quite quite funny. Looks sometimes conversation about this. That's really good question. I get people coming up to me after talks and confessing all sorts of sexual things, which is it feels like a bit of a privileged for people feel that can confide in me. But I've also like I wish I could help I'm not a qualified therapist or not a doctor. So yeah, it's been really interesting. Just really it's sort of reignited my passion as it were for my subject area because I think is trying to convince people that this is a worthy topic at first I kept feeling I had to justify it. So, you know, this really is an research subject because academe Lia doesn't really want to dress sex for pleasure. It's interested in it from a health perspective but much less so from pleasure perspective. So I think being able to say look, this is an important thing. And I truly believe in it. That's been really nice. The book is turned on science six and robots eighties by kite. Devon, devon. You have been an absolute pleasure to talk to us have the best. I really appreciate your time.

"What is it like to be the victim of a concerted organized troll attack? I vein talking to trolls for years. I thought I knew what I was getting to. And I really didn't. Yes. This week on download this shy. The journalists who found itself at the center of troll storm and instead of cowering decided to go hunting. But yeah, I've paid a price for it. And so is my family. I think is junior Goldman, and she is up very soon boss where exactly does your day and night go when you sign up to one of those DNA testing situations. Well, depending on which company you sent it to eat may have ended up with the FBI on all that much more coming up. This is your God to the week in media, technology, and culture. My name is Marc Fennell and welcome to download this shy. Yes. And they brand new upside all download this shar, and will you please welcome. I imagine you sitting there ready to clap when I say this plays. Welcome to the studio the editor of junkie, right Unson. Thank you very much for blows. And the deputy editor of Gizmodo taking Jones. We'll come back to download this show and having the. All right. So I up today. A consumer testing company has given the FBI access to two million profiles why? And what is the impact of that? And how many more serial killers, directing they'll be able to collect that is what we are talking about. I did I write what exactly is it that they're giving to the FBI is it samples or is it more dot of ice than the Dada. Essentially of what you're getting from the day samples. So there's a lot of information that comes out of this sample, and it can connect you to people all over the world, which is incredible. I did a lot of research on this in preparation for this segment. It's really really interesting in court for Philip house. I don't think that I'm gonna get quote from my cereal the hypothesis. She's just that good. Watched enough. True crime documentaries to get away with it. That's a genuine concern of mine that people are using this information in order to get away with murder, but hey, anyway, we'll just make more podcast show. Exactly. So what you're actually giving permission for when you get yourself. DNA tested. His is really really interesting to me, you've got about twelve million people globally submitting their day to be tested for fun purposes for family tree purposes for, you know, hey of you got a genetic folks, you know, that could be many today fall, so many folds now you can request to have your filed deleted cleared and destroyed and they will do it. However, if you have allowed any of these companies to submit day for research purposes, and they get sent off to third party labs, your DNA will never be destroyed from any of the investigations that it has been a pot of it will be part of that system indefinitely, and you're also in a way giving permission for your parents, your siblings, and your children's DNA to be stored on these daughter. Bases because it all has markers for those people as well. So you're basically just going here have all of my genetic information. And then if there's a Dada bridge, which has happened in the past and will happen in the future. You know, just sell it to an insurance company that will put my premiums up all allow an employer in the future to discriminate against me..

"I would like to put a price on how much it would cost me. This is something super rice lead. Just to see what happened. Download this show is what you're listening to my name is Marc Fennell. We are in studio with China's burn and ride Johnson knock for knows my name. And as of December seventeenth, you cannot be funding. The porn on tumbler. Apparently. Now Tomba's had an interesting journey. Philosophies of Costa was a story about how acceptable child exploitation material was on tumbler few weeks ago, and they have reacted in court. A drastic y ride Johnson. Tell me the story of how Tomba has arrived at removing all the porn from their platform. Yeah. Basically they've looked at a situation where child pornography was I think it's fair to say RAF on the summit. Apple responded by removing the tumbler app from the app store. There was a huge amount of backlash. So they've gone ahead. And started flagging any kind of content that it says inappropriate. And it is once again like all of these companies to using el-gharib them in order to find it. So the kinds of things that they flagging right now on necessarily pornographic. Now, you've got things like that works that just happened to be of women fully clothed thing flagged as being pornography. It also nudity doesn't also in and of itself necessarily translate to pornography anyone into an aunt gallery of life. Like this absolutely big gaps in that. But even if you accept that the do definitely want to talk about all the different ways in which Albert Maguire cleaning platform programmatic because we've seen that with Instagram. Let's just say this is it necessarily wrought to remove over like if you have spice on the internet where people can go consume. Aerobic material consenting and share it in a social context. Is it an inherently bad thing? Do you? See what I'm saying? Yeah. Yeah. I think that it is an inherently bad thing to to get rid of it. I think Tomba has been a bit of a haven for many people all around the world to find sexuality find communities resonate with what you don't see in mainstream. Mainstream porn for that matter. You know, when you look at pornography sites, the not really very varied in the kind of content that they producing and the kind of guys that they're producing it full tumble was a place where quick community could gather and find the people I think that this is a this is definitely a blow for those kinds of place.

And I think they've taken the approach of saying, well, let's just get rid of all of the things that have anything to do with anything slightly inappropriate because we just don't have to deal with including hush tag, lesbian, seriously.

It's like we need to stop and just ask ousting cells along the way is this a positive development is something that is actually going to help me make things easy make my left bit or other potential risks here, and there an argument for not actually doing that. Next thing that's come out that next tick. Because that's what it's all about. It's about following these progress of technology that we unquestioningly go along way as because technology progresses human progress. And I think we just need also questions mall.

And I think in the case of Instagram think about how much you engage that in the case of Facebook. How much information my giving them? I think it's it's it's a good thing.

This is your guide to the week in media, technology, and culture. My name is Marc Fennell and welcome to download this shy. Yes. It is another observe download this show. And can I please introduce you to our panelists this week? He is an editor with information security media group, Jeremy back, and she is the deputy editor of Gizmodo I'm gonna go with overruling Queen of his motor. I love it. Let's do that. Let's get that on your linked in it. He's taken John's. Welcome back to download the show. Thank you for letting me back in the building against better judgement. Let's just say that. All right. Well, a lot of stories get through this been an interesting conspiracy theory writhing around the internet that Netflix is changing the thumbnails that it shows you depending on your ethnicity. What is the story? Why has it got people upset takings? Yes. So this originally came from a Twitter user who took some screen shorts. When she believed that she was being marketed to buy Netflix odd, Jude Jerez, oh, she's black woman. And what she basically was showing that a movies. We have predominantly want costs were then being shown to her net. Flicks with posters that had SimpliSafe Kochta's who might have even had a few lines in these movies. Yeah. The great example is a movie like father, which dos Kelsey grab Kelsey grammer. And Kristen bell primarily it's does them. But she show these thumbnails that had the two African American actors in the movie for like ten minutes. That's right and same with love, actually. And those a bunch of examples on there, which sparked more people to reply to her and say, you know, what this is happening to me too. And so what it does actually force net. Flicks. Do as Everett this big long post on their website to speaking as an editor maybe too long. But it does explain actually how they go about arriving thumbnails because the thumbnails odd derived algorithm cly, they don't necessarily know your rice. But they do know your preferences. Jeremy how does it work? Netflix was very up front that we do not collect any information about. You're so the explanations quite reasonable. And so what they're doing is that the blog post explain this very long winded way that they're looking at things that you've watched and then recommending other things and they're even doing that down to the specific actor levels. So if you like Will Smith likely to see films that he's been in and maybe films that he doesn't have a major part in. But he features on that thumbnail. So that's obviously just sort of drive engagement and key people watching films that they may be interested in. Yes, there's a great example here is like if you've watched all you slow down as you scroll. Poss- the post aseren deputy attorney John spotless mind while you were sleeping. I will show you the thumbnail goodwill hunting, many drive and Matt diamond. But if you're somebody that slows down for famous comedians, they will I will amend that picture that have Robin Williams and posting I find that really interesting got the notion that there's really granular data going. To how they sell it to you. Really fascinating. Yeah. It is really interesting. And I think on some level I can say why all that actor I'm going to watch that movie great. But where it becomes really problematic, especially in regards to race is that we've got to remember that the showing these people movies with these carte early in that maybe for a few minutes. Thus onerous faking diversity in these movies just during this. And I think that's where a lot of the anger that..

"Human connection, human interaction, robusta bites, shapes and sizes, that human, they fundamentally psychologically effective tools of human communication. And yet we probably do need to. Thinking about how we inject human rules into that environment, the hats more than just the terms and conditions that they have as his provide their concerns over free speech to.

And you know, they hemmed in hawed over how to allow him on the platform. And I, it kind of seemed pretty clear that this is just really fringe content. It's falls, you should get rid of them, but they really, you know, they were worried about clamping down on on sort of free speech, and but these things should be clear. I mean, you really don't have free speech on a platform run by a commercial company, like none of these companies. Facebook would allow somebody to come into their lobbies and and sort of blow racist dog whistles. So I mean, I kind of think like, why should you allow it online?

Thank you so much for joining us trainings thinki-. And of course the reason you are in the US the moment is because apple have vialed a whole bunch of new funds and Audi, new apple watch. And what makes these new fines distinctive? What can they do that other ones can't? Well, this is sort of they started with the ten last year, and this is kind of building on the ten essentially. So while they was kind of a regular like normal screen, ten now there is a max Paolo vision of this. This often ten. And so that is literally the max.

What is the notch? Sorry, the notches, an adorable black band because basically what what apple did with the intent is that they took away the the fingerprint sensor on the front of the fine nine, his touch ID and this was the way that you sort of look the fine. It was very convenient. However, it took up a whole lot of room at the bottom of the iphone screen, and sorry to replace that, they use some fancy pants cameras since debt senses and and something that spews invisible. Infrared dots Levy face to recognize you. And I put all of that into a little black bar. The top and rather than sort of stretch that black ball all the way over the top of the fine that decided to just stretch it as much as they head to. And so it is a little blank beat at the top of the screen, and that is known as the notch. And what I find the funniest thing about the notch is that now that apple has these old of these other Chinese manufacturers have deliberately put the notch into their foreign because event will can do it.

Darn calm, right. The very different base. I think they'll be a place for both, but I would probably had to pick one. I one stand stay, although it's interesting tonight that I don't think going anywhere, but I think it's interesting that love island was very big success. Is that the actual thing, except house we call it six island because it is just it's just the worst, but the very best TV, I wanna we should absolutely dedicate an entire episode to the monstrosities of reality TV. 'cause I love it. I'm sure we can do that high down is what you're listening to. You are listening to the voices of may Marc Fennell Klay Raleigh, and guess he's just walked in a little bit light taking John's from us mad. I thanks so much joining having me the pleasures and giving you. You have to take the lead on the next story. So fascinating story coming out of the US the moment that Americans can legally download three day printed guns starting from August. I, I have so many questions. Firstly, what is the legal environment currently around this? The prevented them from doing, yes. Sorry. This story actually goes back to twenty thirteen where a self-proclaimed, Anna, I guess Kurdi Wilson. He basically uploaded. He's earned three. Eighty printing blueprint to the internet that would allow people to download and print their own thirty two gun called download this coun-. Plus would listen. Yes. So that happened and the US government at the time which zero bomb in administration, particularly happy about it and ordered him to take down. And then he sued the government in twenty fifteen and a good three is laid on the the new administration is tend around and said, you know what? We don't really wanna go to pay legal face. Can you? Can you can put it up? That's fine, Honey. Sorry, couple things with this Kati Wilson. I do remember actually download this story back in two thousand thirteen gonna say deller to the blue. No, but I believe a guest we had on at the time had an Wilson's like quite a radical libertarian. He believes in freedom for all. And can we take a second knowledge the name of the gun. Nothing sound scarier than the liberator. Even recognizing differences in American political situation. Let's say that the American relationship with guns heavily informed by the right. DNA ri- being organization largely supported by weapons manufacturers. People make money from designing and selling guns. One would argue that Diane not in favor of an open source, three d printed gone for all to buy. So taking all that into account who is this in favor of to have open source three d printed guns clay. I think it was really in favor of the kind of the name liberator the libertarians who want to be able to say it's my right to own a gun, but I didn't necessarily have to bind to the military industrial complex to be able to do. So let's ten into a cottage industry. Consi with. I think it's really it's fascinating because, yeah, as you say, weapons manufacturers in the NRA go hand in hand, these fellow deed have the support when he went through this legal process. Do you have the support of a group that was kind of a second amendment rights group? So I think there's obviously a lot of people in the US that believe in the importance of liberties and civil liberties associated with guns. Not realizing that the NRA has all those kind of political lobby ties. But I find this fascinating because legal case actually was built around the idea that they couldn't put them online because the US doesn't have the legal right to export guns to certain countries. And so it was an export and import and kind of international borders question rather than why trying to print a gun don't do it. It's a terrible idea, really not random laws, but like tenuous laws to deal with something that income version would be like a very simple rod, our conversations and welcome to the legal system. Yeah, I guess we should able that. Able that haven't actually saying pictures over before. It's quite unusual looking device, I guess taking a few to sit with this thing in front of you, and let's thank the Lord that you do not..
