"That some people are metabolic agers, so their liver and their kidneys and they may age quicker. Some people are cardiac agers where they seem to be more at risk for having heart problems or there could be immune ages. So their immune system is in they're more susceptible to pathogens and stuff with age. So if you were to measure like a blood sample from a person using would the epigenetic clocks picked up that or is it more like is it measuring more of the systems level type of aging? So the current ones are not going to capture more of this multi dimensionality and aging. And I'm a huge fan of Mike Snyder's work and actually is kind of influencing some of the work that we're doing now. So what we're actually trying to do now is to build clocks that are proxying aging in different organ systems. So these aren't out yet, but the idea is that if you can build a clock that's going to essentially try and proxy what your brain aging is or your liver aging, your kidney aging, then you can have multiple epigenetic age estimates. And really understand more of the profile of a person. And so yeah, it's kind of getting back to this idea of ageotype. We both age at a different rate from each other, but also in a different way. So I might diverge more down this way and be more of a metabolic age or whatever it is and someone else might be more of an immune nature. And understanding that is going to give people both potentially insight into what interventions might be the most helpful for them. And also what they might be most at risk for. Mortality risk is a big one that you see with grim age and even I think if you know age as well, how does that how well do they predict mortality risk and even disease specific mortality.

"Hey there listeners, it's Brett Molina? Welcome back to talking tech. So this is it. This is the final episode. For now. I'm gonna leave the door open maybe a tiny crack. I'll explain more of that in a bit. But for now, if you haven't heard from earlier episodes of this podcast, talking tech is going to take a hiatus. I'm not going to call it a permanent hiatus, there is a possibility that we come back in some form, I can't guarantee anything, but again, like I said, I'll leave the door open just a little crack. Maybe we come back, I don't know. But for right now, the talking tech podcast is going to go on hiatus. And I figured what better way to wrap this up than to share some of my personal tech tips, things that I try to do every day. I'm not always successful, but I try to do a lot of this stuff all the time. And I think it's important that you do too. And if there's any lessons to take away from this podcast, I'm hoping it's these. So I'll share some of these tips right now. The first one, this is at the very top of my list because I feel like it's one of the most important. Turn on two factor authentication. If you're not exactly sure what that is, if you're still in the dark about it, basically the way it works is when you sign up for an account, you can have this extra layer of security when you log in. So let's say you log in right after that you'll get a prompt that says, we're going to send you a code to your smartphone or wherever, and it's you have to type that in too. So it's on top of your password. I love it. I think it's super helpful if you're trying to keep your account extra secure. If you're worried about just getting spam with text all the time every time you log in, you can save your details on your browser so that way you can just log in. You don't have to do it every single time. Also, if you're tired of typing in the codes, a lot of apps now have been really good at allowing you to just open up your smartphone app and clicking a yes or no, did you log in here? And then you're set. But I highly recommend turning it on. It's super helpful. Super useful. You never know what could happen in the last thing you want to someone to get into your account. It's a nice little buffer that can protect you. And protect your stuff. The next one I would say is passwords. If you haven't tried it yet, use a password manager. If you're not sure about password managers, figure out those critical accounts that you know that, hey, if it gets compromised, that is going to be that's going to ruin your day. If you have accounts like that, make sure those have unique passwords. I get it. There's some sites where you're just plugging in a password to get on an account and it really doesn't matter to you. If you want to plug in a password that you're not sure about fine. But the important thing is those critical accounts just make sure that you have unique passwords for each. And again, ideally, password manager. That's the best way to go. It's one sign in one login. It generates your own passwords randomly. It's a great tool if you haven't used them yet. The third one, I fail at this a lot. I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I'm perfect at this. Never put off the software update. I do it all the time. I admit it, but again, don't put off the software update. It is so important, especially if you're trying to protect yourself. If you're trying to make sure that your phone, your laptop, everything is secure and safe, always update. Even if you're in the middle of something and it's a giant pain, doing anyway. The last one and this is another one. I violate two sometimes, but it's good. Never charge your devices to a 100%. A lot of batteries now are newer, they work a lot better, and they don't need to be fully charged top rate properly. It's not like the days where you go from zero to a hundred. Keep your stuff charged between 20, 80% or so. And you're in good shape. You'll take care of your battery, you'll take care of your devices. It's all beautiful. So that's it. Again, if you want to read any of my coverage, you can go to tech USA Today dot com. I think right now I just want to say thanks. I want to say thank you to all my editors. I editor Michelle, who has been so supportive of this podcast and has really been a champion and someone that has really helped allow me to bring this to you. So I want to thank her I want to thank Mike Snyder, who was co host with me on this podcast for quite a while. And we worked so great together and it is always fun to work with Mike and I really appreciate being able to work with him and help keep this going. I want to thank Jeff Graham, who is the original host of talking tech and started this whole podcast. Thanks for trusting me with this opportunity. Thank you for just helping me get on my way with this endeavor. And you put together a podcast that has stood for a really long time. So again, thank you for that chance. And lastly, I want to thank all the listeners..

"App monitors your resting heart rate and can even alert to coronavirus infections before any symptoms appear. Mike Snyder told Trisha Smith, how it works. We're following your normal healthy baseline. And then if there's a jump up and signal and alert goes off. And it works about 80% of the time, we'll get an alert at or before a symptom. And it turns out it's an average of three days from a real-time alerting system. So three days prior to people getting ill on average a red alert will go off. Now we do miss it in 20% of the cases. And we think that's because it's hard to get a stable healthy baseline on some people. And so that makes finding these triggers a lot harder. And that's why we're trying to improve our algorithms as well. And all of that is at the moment done from resting heart rate. But you want to look at heart rate variability activity level, sleep quality, and what are you hoping to find from that additional data? Yeah, we think that will be key to telling the difference between, say, respiratory viral infection and a mental health stress and other sorts of triggers, things like alcohol, intense exercise can all trigger these alerts. Most of them you can contextualize and simply ignore. Certainly intense exercise. We should be able to ultimately subtract out because we'll see that from the smartwatch. Yeah, because with intense exercise, you're probably going to have some kind of evidence of elevated heart rate from the intense exercise itself. Exactly. What about asymptomatic cases? Were you able to detect those and how far in advance did you detect them? Yeah, remarkably, we can find asymptomatic cases as well. So 14 out of 18 asymptomatic cases, we could pick up that in some cases. The signal of appear two weeks prior to when they were diagnosed. Because I'm a religious tracker of my own health, I already have access to my heart rate data. And I tested positive asymptomatically and my heart rate spiked and then it went down again at roughly the same time, but it's interesting that you say the alert comes about two weeks prior to that in some asymptomatic cases because I had another infection about two weeks prior to that. Yeah, and I very first study what we noticed was that about half the time people had another stress event prior to their COVID. We don't know what that was due to. It could have been another illness. It could have been, you know, possibly a mental stress. It's not clear. But we've noticed it was quite frequent. I think more than you would expect at random. So what that means is that we think there may be early stressors that perhaps make people more susceptible to viral infections as well. Your preaching to the choir a little bit because I love my data and I wear a smart watch, but if you were to try and convince someone who didn't really track their health and didn't wear an Apple watch or anything like that. What would you say to them to convince them to start monitoring their health in real time? I'd say do you drive your car around without a dashboard? Why do you drive your body around without a health dashboard? It makes no sense. I think that's what we need for human health. We currently rely on internal sensors, which kind of work, but they're slow. We think that these physiological sensors from smart devices can actually find things much much earlier and warm people ahead of time before symptoms. And that's super powerful. Every year, these smartwatches seem to add another sensor. What do you think is the future for where technology and how much do you think we're going to be able to gain from those wearable devices? I think we're only at the beginning. For example, there's something called galvanic stress response that measures the conductance on your skin. That actually can tell you when you're getting stressed because the more you sweat, the more it'll pick up a signal. And likewise, if you have diabetes, your skin gets dry, and that can get picked up as well. So it's making certain kinds of measurements that we don't currently do. And so we can actually incorporate that into health monitoring in a way that's never been done. So you're saying that nowadays my watch tells me to move if I haven't moved in an hour. But in the future, it's going to tell me to drink and eat as well. I think so. And it'll tell you, yeah, when you're getting stressed, so maybe you better sit down and meditate. And it will guide me through the meditation as well. Probably, yeah, played musical automatically. Maybe that's where we're going. I'm not sure I need my watch to remind me that I've overdone it the day before. Trejo Smith there, speaking with Mike Snyder and the research was published in nature medicine. Now on the subject of watches here's a story to watch there's been a huge find in the field of quantum physics, real life laboratory based observations of a long theorized form of matter called quantum spin liquids has become a reality. Now, contrary to the name, has absolutely nothing to do with everyday liquids like water. Now you're going to need to strap on your mental seat belt and settle in for the ride. How Louis speaks to Julia from Harvard University to hear what this matter is and why it might be useful. Quantum spin liquids have been theorized about 50 years ago by Philip Anderson, who is a pretty big guy in the condensed medical community. He was trying to find.

"Hey there listeners, it's Bret Molina. Welcome back to talking tech. My co host Mike Snyder is off today. It's you'll recall a couple of years ago. There was a lot of buzz around Facebook. And this notion that is Facebook the app listening to you through your device. And of course, as you recall, Facebook, step four, they said it doesn't eavesdrop. It's only using the mic when you permit it, and it's only listening for certain words. Works similarly to what we've seen with our smart speakers like the echo or any Google speakers that you use where it will only listen to you if you say a certain key word, you know? I'm not going to say them if you have speakers at home because I don't want to trigger this crazy smart home experience right now. But let's say you have Facebook and you're just really worried about is Facebook listening. Even though, again, Facebook has said that it doesn't. But let's say on the off chance you're thinking to yourself, you know what? I'm not too sure, I'm still worried about it. My colleague Kim commander writes about this in a story you can read on tech USA Today dot com. It's titled still using Facebook, three ways to make sure it's not listening. So let's break it down. First thing you want to do is update your permissions. Kim breaks down the different devices you have and how to get to those permissions so you have a better sense of guarding against that. We'll focus on the iPhone as an example. You can go to your settings and you'll scroll down toward the bottom and you'll see the list of apps that are on your phone. Go to Facebook. When you hit Facebook, you'll see the list of permissions. So basically all the different things that you've allowed Facebook to access. Whether it's your camera, your microphone, your photos, your location, whatever it may be. You go to microphone, slide the toggle to disable it. You'll know it's disabled because usually when it's on, you'll see that that toggle is green when it's off, it's not green. So when it's not green, then you know it's off. The second thing you can consider is getting a microphone blocker. And the way these work is you plug them into a headphone Jack or you plug them into a lightning connection or a USB and it tricks your computer or tricks your phone into thinking that there is a microphone plugged in. And so what that does is allows you to basically block anything from listening. Bike lock is an example that Kim brings up that you can try out. And again, you can plug it right into your phone. It even works with, you know, lightning connections as well. So, you know, if you have an iPhone, you plug it right into that. And it'll make the phone think that you have a microphone plugin when you actually don't. The third thing you can consider is a do it yourself mic blocker. So what you can do according to Kim is get a cheap pair of headphones and cut the cord near the Jack and then take that Jack and plug it in. So the plug when you do that, the computer thinks that you have headphones plugged in and therefore that also will block audio as well. So a couple things to consider if you know, again, you know, I don't want to make anyone nervous here and Facebook again has mentioned that, you know, their apps aren't listening to you. But if you're feeling like they might be or you're not you don't trust it, you're not sure. Consider some of these.

"Hey, listeners, it's Brett Molina, welcome back to talking tech. My co host Mike Snyder is off today. The saga between YouTube and Roku continues. YouTube says its app will no longer be available on some Roku devices after December 9th. As both sides remain engaged in an ongoing carriage dispute. In a statement email to USA Today, YouTube said its partnership with Roku for all new devices to access YouTube apps will end in December. So basically, here's how it works. If you are new to Roku, you will not see the YouTube app available for you to download after December 9th. If you're a current Roku owner, you'll still have access to YouTube, as well as YouTube TV, which is Google's big live TV streaming platform. YouTube also said in its statement that it has continued to work with Roku on a deal to benefit all users. This followed a post that Roku published on Thursday, updating folks on the negotiations. Lashing out at Google as well as other big tech big tech companies. Let's read the quote. Rather than embracing a mutually beneficial partnership approach, some big tech enterprises are using their market power to extend control over independent businesses like Roku to benefit their broader business objectives at the expense of the consumer, putting a fair and open competitive streaming marketplace at risk. Quote, YouTube has said several times, Roku's claims are unproductive in baseless, said that again in its statement on Thursday this has been a long-standing battle between the two sides for a while now. You'll call in April, Roku said it was pulling the YouTube TV app from its streaming device after the contract carried on its platform had lapsed in response to that Google wrote a blog post claiming it wanted to renew its deal with Roku, but Roku sought to renegotiate a separate deal involving the primary YouTube app. As a result, Google then added access to YouTube TV through the main YouTube app. So if for any reason, the YouTube TV app went away, you could still access that service through the primary YouTube app. Stay tuned for all this. This is obviously.

"Listeners it's wet molina welcome back to talking tech my co host. Mike snyder is off today. It's friday and if you're a fan of technology it's a big day because apple as officially launched the iphone thirteen. You all know about all the details about it. You know the standard phone the mini phone the pro the pro amax all that fun stuff about all the pricing blah blah blah. So what's it actually like to use the iphone thirteen. I got a chance to check it out. And i write about this on tech usa. Today dot com. It's under a story five things. I learned using apple's latest iphone models. So just recently. I got access to all four versions of the iphone. So the iphone the mini the pro and the pro. Max and i got the check them out for a little bit. I had a very short window of time It was about getting as much information. I can't about the phones based on my experience before they actually hit stores so before people actually had to make decisions who weren't pre on whether they wanted to buy iphone thirteen so here my thoughts. Let's start big picture here. Is it worth the upgrade. I own an iphone twelve mini. I really like it based on using the iphone thirteen. I'm not seeing anything performance. Wise speed-wise that so different that i feel compelled to upgrade on that level. So if you ever newer phone if you have an iphone twelve even if you have an iphone. Eleven or even around the iphone x. x. Are those models and you're thinking to upgrade to thirteen. I don't necessarily think you need to rush to do it. The thirteen is a really nice phone but some of those older phones are still very good too. And i don't see a big enough difference in performance to where there is that urge and this is something we've seen the last couple of years. Now where the iphone just gets better and better in general and so newer models. There's there's not as big a gap between releases and so it really doesn't feel that different If you're on an older phone if you're on say maybe an iphone eight iphone seven. I think you're gonna notice a huge uptick in performance and in a lot of the features that are made available. So.

"Mike snyder is off today. It's friday which means it's preorder day for the iphone thirteen on tuesday as you all know apple confirmed during virtual event it will. It will release four models of the iphone thirteen on september twenty fourth along with the standard model. Apple's going to launch a mini version as well as pro and pro max models on top of that. You also can buy the iphone twelve or the iphone twelve mini and the iphone eleven. And they're still the iphone. se So there's a lot to choose from if you're a fan of apple and you're looking to upgrade your iphone and that's what we're gonna talk about today i wrote about this on tech dot. Usa today dot com basically breaking down how to choose the right iphone for you Let's start here. Iphones thirteen if you're looking at getting an iphone thirteen. There's four models to choose from really. I think it boils down to. How much do you want to spend on an iphone. How much camera do you want on this iphone. And how much does storage manner to you on the iphone. Let's start with the price. The iphone mini starts at six ninety nine and it moves up to the pro max at ten ninety nine. If you're looking at things like the camera Iphone thirteen and the iphone. Thirteen many have the to camera system. the pro and the primax had this three camera system which uses the telephoto lens Battery life the higher end models are going to have better battery life. Moving the way down toward the mini. Which is going to have as good a battery life as the pro max. It's by a couple hours. So it's it's a pretty significant bump if you're looking for battery life Screens are also a thing as well. Obviously the mini has a smaller screen. It's five point four inches be prone the pro The pro in the standard have six point one screen and then the pro max as a six point seven inch screen also another thing to think about as well is the storage space. If you get a pro pro. Max you can get an iphone with up to one terabyte of storage so that is a lot And that's really what it boils down to When you're picking an iphone thirteen do you want to save a little money. You're not so worried about the huge screen than maybe a minis good for you or even the standard if you take a lotta pictures and you're really into photography. The maybe consider the pro or the pro max. V very sophisticated camera And it's it's gonna give you really crisp sharp picture. So that is something to think about as you're making the sison if you're thinking about iphone thirteen there's also of course the iphone twelve. Which really feels a lot like the phone thirteen. The difference is you're paying less for it. it's at six ninety nine for the standard.

"Listeners it's brought molina welcome back to talking tech my co host. Mike snyder is off today so he had to break it to you but summer is almost over now for many kids. This means going back to the classroom and it also means parents searching for supplies. Close whatever they need to get ready for back to school season. Of course it also means lots of other things to you're juggling homework. Assignments potentially extracurricular activities and so on and so forth. fortunately for all of us we have our smartphones and we have other technology that can help. There are a ton about apps out there for both kids and adults. They can help them get used to this and just get ready for the new year and help them get a head start so we're gonna talk quickly about a couple of those apps and how they can help your kids and how they can help you The first one is quiz limit It's basically an app for flash cards so if you're studying and you need to pull together some flash cards and put them on your phone. You can do that very easily on your mobile device. You can input them indirectly. There's also a subscription option where you can scan images and use those in your flash cards as well. There's other stuff as well as part of the subscription including expert explanations for textbooks so if your kids reading a textbook and they come across a difficult section they have someone there to explain it to you so it's really interesting stuff another fun. One is photograph It's ideal for both kids and parents and speaking of someone who is seeing their kids get older and they're mad. Get a lot harder. This is going to be an app. I'm probably gonna use quite a bit. Would photo math does is. You can take pictures of math problems. And then the app solves them and along with solving them. You actually get a step by step. Look at how to solve them. So it's really fascinating. It's a really you know. Maybe not as fun for parents of kids who are trying to struggle with these math problems. What super useful super helpful But it's not just these apps for learning that that are really good as well There's also apps for organizing for calendars one that jumps out to me. That i use quite a bit is fantastical It's honestly my personal favourite calendar app. You integrate it with most third party councillor. C can bring everything together in one and it gives really just simple views of day-to-day schedules month to month and breakdowns of the month and even incorporates. Little details like weather forecasts So there's a lot of really good stuff there and it really works. I'd also recommend to if you haven't done this yet There are a lot of task apps out there like any do or microsoft to do which was formerly known as wunderlist all very good for keeping track of day to day things. You have to get done. Whether it's a parent who's got to do different things At home or it's kids.

Google email client is super useful. Probably the best email option out there. I use it. I love it. It's really helpful. But some g mail users have been reporting issues with important emails ending up in their spam folders among those affected by this usa today money reporter nathan bony who wrote about it for tec- dot usa today dot com and joins us here today. Nathan thanks for being here. So how did you find out what was going on with gmo. Well i had my recreational softball league coach contacted me and said hey. Why haven't you issued for this week's game. And i said well i didn't get it and you the irish unit last week and so all of a sudden i was like what about my sample there so took the spam folder for the first time in the weeks and some and saw eighty five emails. Were quite legitimate. That had been stuck in there over the last thirty days. So you know in your story you talk a little more about kind of what happened there. And then you reached out to google. So what did how. Google respond to all this. Google was not helpful. They really didn't have much to say. They basically pointed us to their standard vice. What to do when Email my end up in your spam filter but you know the most insight that i got was searching on twitter and seeing there are a lot of other people that are reporting the same experience. I m reporting over the last week or so. It's feels like something has changed now. I'm not a software. You know to engineer or developer in any respect.

How to Store Your COVID Vaccine Card on Your Phone
"Listeners. It's molina welcome back to talking tech co host. Mike snyder is off today as the delta variant of the cove in nineteen virus runs rampant throughout the. Us we're starting to see a renewed push to get more americans vaccinated and we're also seeing a lot of businesses and governments step forward to require more employees to get the vaccine for example president. Joe biden said last week he would require federal workers to verify david vaccinated or undergo regular testing. We've also seen companies and some local governments. Do the same. Even broadway said it's gonna make the same request of theatergoers before they can attend to show this of course means grabbing that cove in nineteen vaccine card that verifies that we got our vaccines. The question is how do you carry it because obviously it's not a small like i personally can't fit it in my wallet if you have a bag in a purse. Maybe but then you're also dealing with the annoyance of digging for it and pulling it out every time or because it's only the one card you might end up losing it. Fortunately we have something that we carry around with this all the time that can offer solution and that is our smartphone I write about this on tech that today dot com. I offer a few ways that you can add your covert card your smartphone to make the process easier and allow you to keep your card at home so you don't have to worry about losing it.

So it can't be viewed in her library couple of reasons for this if say someone is using your phone and they're looking through your photos they can't see your cova card there but also you avoid that awkward scenario where you're having to find your cova card for some reason in your camera roll and you're you're having to scroll through repeatedly pictures of your family or dog your vacation just to get to one photo that you need to verify that you've been vaccinated. This takes a lot of that issue out of the way and you can have just one album with that. One image that alleged to quickly access it.

"It listeners. it's brought molina. welcome back to talking tech my co host. Mike snyder is off today. So tell me if this sounds familiar. You have an iphone or an ipad you pop into your settings and you notice that little red number one that pops up and you go and you see software update and it's your iphone or ipad telling you you need to update your device but you decided you know what i'm gonna do it later You might wanna consider next time you find yourself in that situation update as soon as you can. Apple recently rolled out. Ios fourteen dot seven dot one. Which is the latest version of its operating system for iphones. there's also one for ipad. os as well which is also named ipad s. fourteen dot seven dot one. Now when you first look at. It doesn't seem like that. Big update in the case of iphones. It fixes an issue where models with touch. Id can't unlock appeared apple. Watch when you use the unlock with iphone feature. There is however a very important security update. Here apple says. They found an issue tied to memory corruption. And what happens is this issue could lead to a situation where an application could quote maybe able to execute arbitrary code with colonel privileges. So what exactly does that mean Texts life hacker had a really good explanation of this. What this issue can lead to. Is it quote allows malicious apps installed on the device to gain elevated privileges in execute arbitrary code attacks and quote which is not good. If you're an iphone owner so what makes us a big deal is apple noted in its security update that this issue has been actively exploited which means that it has been used at some point or other.

It offers four times. The pictures a four k which was already offering four times the pixels of hd a in short. You get a better picture. That is really what is being offered here. Here's the thing though. Do you need eight k tv set. Probably not right now. There is still a shortage of ak content out there. There are some youtube videos. That are in eight k.
