"Start with the the iphone. Twelve pro <hes>. What is new this year with. That came snapple. Make big hardware changes on the regular twelve pro. There were some <hes>. Some hardware changes they upgraded the wide lens to a news at seven element lens and and it's slightly faster than it was before meaning the the aperture can open up a little bit wider and it can let more light in than the previous previous than last year's wide lens when i refer to wide lens i mean the the normal one x and and but really the twelve pro upgrade was really focused on software and this is where we just really got to see what the software team <hes> at apple has been working on and see really really shine things like a night mode on the ultra wide. We're huge huge upgrades and <hes>. And so it was really cool to see a <unk>. The im- improvement and overall image image creation capacity on the twelve pro with <hes>. Really purely almo- almost almost exclusively on in software and <hes>. The story on the twelve pro. Max of course was which will get to more about hardware. The computational photography thing is we're apple has really put the gas down and it kind of makes sense because you got this camera with what is it like a basically a quarter of an inch of depth in the laws of physics determine. Exactly how much lens you can put with that much space but if you can improve it on the compute side while the with these fourteen ships. They've got a lot of compute power to spare and every year you go to the wwe see and or to the iphone announcement and they announced this ridiculous number of computations that are done on every image that you take through the device and that's where the heavy lifting is being done now. Yeah it's really. It's really incredible to experience. All of that crazy technology being pointed towards a better user. Experience and a magical. It's also it's it's it's magical it's like beyond belief how well this can create images and that. I think it's easy. We've come to expect so much of of our iphone cameras that <hes>. It's easy to kind of get it. This you know kinda lose the the sense of of what is actually doing but at the end of the day every user picks it up takes a great photo. And that's that's really amazing and in almost any lighting scenarios. Now mike one of the one of the things that's really blown. My mind is just how the rules are different in a camera that relies so much on software for for example. If i were to take a three or four second exposure. Let's say a five second exposure with my traditional pro camera it would be almost impossible to keep that image sharp hand holding it. you know. It's very very difficult to hold the camera for five seconds super still and it's it's exposing one frame and it would definitely be impossible to do that while while driving in a moving car right or like with any sort of bumps or anything like that and the just the the laws of physics and the laws that were familiar with as photographers. Just don't allow you to do that. You just can't keep chart well on the iphone you're dealing with a different set of laws and rules because of how the software bridging the gaps. And basically you know when you're shooting night modem this five seconds exposure on your iphone. It's not shooting just one long frame. It's instead it's shooting multiple frames per second. And then it's auto aligning the ones that line up in our sharp and so over over five second exposure you might have you know you'll have dozens and dozens of different frames in the iphone will throw out the ones that aren't good. Where maybe you were shaking or bumping and it'll stack all the ones that are lined up and they're sharp in delivers you a sharp image. Even if i see my hand is moving. I still get a sharp image and though that's just like that's just crazy and it's hard to kind of wrap your mind around it and so the more i always really encourage you know when you get a new especially for traditional photographers when they get a new iphone camera to really go out and play with it. A time to understand where the delimitations are kind of how it works because it thinks and again it has rules that are so much different than what we we traditionally think of as photographers

"That these are odd times that we're living in. We will never forget. 2020 is hardest. We might try. But here's another one. A win is a $1.9 billion hit to a pretext earnings. During the second quarter thought it is a good number. Well when it was predicted to be five billion And it wasn't a $5 billion hit but a $1.9 billion hit and during a time when they were shut down as well. Happy to report Some pretty happy news, all things considered from the Ford Motor Company. And what a pleasure it is Always to welcome back to the Paul W. Smith show. Mr. Jim Hackett, the CEO of Ford Motor Company, and I never thought I'd be congratulating you for a $1.9 billion hit, but it sure beats $5 billion Doesn't Jim Well, Paul, Libya you You hit the nail on the head because you know, it's really difficult to run a company when the factories are shut down, So basically that loss is a reflection of we weren't in business. Um, for you know a portion of that quarter and then when we do get in business Um, Here's the good news or really fantastic news. Our people that went to work in those factories are people that got them ready. The factories. There are people that made it safe over performed because we built more vehicles than we thought we could. And so I couldn't tell you this. Last week. We were talking about the Bronco. But that's why we're so excited because on the heels of the Bronco launch, we knew that we were gonna have a really fantastic bit of news. For Wall Street. It's simply stated, I would say, Mr Hackett there at Ford Motor Company and with your Ford family and team, strong execution and a challenging environment. Period. No question. And in fact, you know Ford in the last big downturn. 08 10 doesn't take federal bailout money. And in this case, we you know, we managed our balance sheet expertly. We were goingto look like one of the best auto companies frankly, coming out of Koven, Given our balance sheet, we took a little Ah, razzing. I think for you know when we were borrowing the money and cutting the dividend, But we were doing everything we could to get things set up for what was going to be a Challenge and we did so well that we actually paid back half of the revolver. We pay back $8 million on July 27th. That's that's a nice payment. And this all happening while the U. S economy has now we know officially turned in its worst performance ever in the second quarter, with the covert 19 pandemic, shuttering businesses across the country and Most of US consumers, most of us hunkering down in our homes. Meanwhile, in the past 30 days, Jim You've had two huge successful launches. The F 1 50 in the Bronco. And I think Paul W in that news about the economy. I tried to get this across last night that Ford is going to be offering brand new jobs to build this Bronco at Michigan Assembly, 2 to 3000 people and the reason I think it's probably going to be to the higher end because we've had over 100,000 reservations for for the vehicle. Um and we, you know we wouldn't want to make more of them and the F 1 50 is going to be Um, it's super successful. In fact, an insight there is when we told we don't normally do this, but we told them that the third quarter will be profitable. The fourth quarter, we said won't be, but it's not because we are working hard or making things happen. It's because we have to shut down some of the production of the some of the production and the two factories of the F 1 50 as we turn over to the new This is this happens normally in the auto industry, but it's amplified, you know, and everyone's staring the virus impact, Mr Hackett There's been a change here. I settle, though it may be originally the company was not saying how many reservations that you got for the Bronco. If I'm not mistaken, that was that wasn't discussed the actual numbers. You just said. I think you just said over 100,000 reservations. I did, And you know part of the reason that I'm talking about it because we don't want customers to get discouraged because we're still working on it. Secondly, it's going to break every record that we've ever had on the company on something like this. I mean, and this is what, frankly appalled, Obeah. You've been such a spirit of optimism. I knew when I took this job mints, you know it was going to take Three years to get the new things to market. It's just not done faster in the auto industry, and so I want the world to know that you know this plan. These things that we have put in place are really working now. And so that's It's just fantastic news. Right. Listen, look, you were coming in as a non auto guy. You're under fire. You were second guessed with every move, but I've known you for years through a few different jobs, and you've been successful at all of him. So I've had nothing but faith in you, Jim Hackett and the That faith has been reassured in the job that you're doing tough that it has been strong execution and the challenging environment meaningful progress on your plan to create this vibrant Ford Motor Company and by the way, along with thes two launches in the last 30 days, the F 1 50 in the Bronco. Let's not forget about the upcoming Mustang Mach E. And my spies have told me that you've actually had a chance to drive an advanced prototype. Tell me about that. Yeah. And thank you for those comments. You know the way I was trained by this wonderful coach Ocean back where I that I have to give honor to our team.

"Ww DC and data. Season is upon us every year. I, <hes> I, him in Haw, and I always install all the Betas usually. We don't cover them a lot. Until <hes> the we're closer to release, but because of this year that changes are so significant, and people are just so interested in the stuff that <hes> Steven and I, both kind of made a point to go a little crazy with Beta installs <hes>, and we've been using them now for a weekend. I thought it'd be fun to report how these features are working and. And given. This is Betas with some of this stuff could change, but you know. Let's kind of dive in deep on it I will say you've gone a little deeper than I have so the pool right I'm swimming in the pool. You did a cannonball from the top of your house into the deep end. Oh, I did I. Did I I wrote a post in the payers forum saying Hey Steven I've gone a little crazy with the bait. If you've got questions, let us know and a team. Oh, wrote crazy like install watch os Beta. And <hes> one of us did I'll give you one guess. Not, me. Like I had actually Rosemary. <hes> went in that pool I I said well. Did you watch blow up anything? She says well when I wash my hands at once crash, but otherwise it's been fine, and like you know it and also I feel kind of cavalier this year because I'm home, not traveling. <hes> if if my phone gets to messed up I can always unwind. The Beta I'm. Home doesn't matter that much so I. I didn't feel that bad about it, so so let's just <hes>. Let's list the devices right <hes>. What have you got? The BETAS installed on, so I've got the Beta on a external SSD that. I'm booting my macbook pro from I, need my fro some later this year, so I'm not willing to put the bait on at directly yet. And running it on my I've had many other. My leverage IPAD PRO is probably going to succumb to it. By the time this episode comes out <hes> out of my phone, and the definitely not my Mac pro <hes>. The this machine is where I make my living, and it will stay on Catalina for some time, but yes. I'm playing with it kind of getting my. Getting in the pool. I spent more time with it on the Max I've got thoughts around that, but. I want to get back. Somebody said a second ago. The interest in Beta cycle is way higher than it normally feels like. And maybe that's because a lot of people aren't home. Life's a little bit slower now. It's because like big Sur in particular is a huge change having we just on your iphone. Who Change like there's a lot of things that are really attractive about these Betas. Wherein some years it's like yeah, it's better, but you know. You can live without it for three more months. Some of the stuff people want to really experience now. Yeah, agreed. And <hes> and there is kind of some themes to these Betas as we go through it. In the show today I started with the Beta on my is because I have two IPAD pros because I'm that guy so I started with a on the big IPAD pro and it was running fine, and then it quickly cascaded over a couple of days. And I put it on the laptop, so I had big Sur on the laptop in it on the IPAD. Then <hes> suddenly I had it on the second IPAD I had on my own. I also put it on my Mac pro because we have a the way. The recording situation is right now in the sparks headquarters. Has You know there's there's four people living in fifteen hundred square feet and <hes> so? My studio isn't really where I'm recording shows where my I MAC PRO is. It's where I do all the edits and all that stuff, but I'm not doing the recording there <hes>. My old studio has been turned into my daughter's. Daughter's bedroom, but we have an extra in there, and that is the kind of recording machine I'm sitting at it right now, so my fancy Mike and Everything so that one is not upgraded or or running Betas, but but but the all the others should Max. The to Max I own are and then a few days ago I. Put on the watch, too. Because I as I told Rosemary and the automakers. If it breaks, it's her fault. But it's you know so, I, I've been reading on everything. This one thing that you may have heard in the news is these are pretty stable Betas I. think partly because wwe came later. This is more like Beta or Beta three in normal year. That being said do as we say, we do. Don't don't know these. If you need to get your work done Yada Yada Yada Yeah. I, mean they're still developer Betas. At this point, you have to have a developer account. The Public Beta will be in July. That's when they're more widely accessible and usually in the past. At least it's been to developer bills for everyone public Betas so. Developer Beta two or three be public Beta one and there'll be a couple of developer builds and then. A couple more puppets, this sort of tiktok approach, and just because this Betas good doesn't mean the next one will be in fact very often. They get worse before they get better. So yeah, do what we say like. Let us take the pain and you know if you have a spare me, shake my head many if it bursts into flames, that'd be sad, but it's not the end of the world. Then <hes> yeah, I think it's fine to play with on that, but definitely out of production machine now something you need for work because you can this situation where the you know, it's always like the one happy really need the one workflow you really depend on. That's the one that's broken for months. That'll get you.

now thomas is a as an editor we we we we interviewed doug brooks product manager for the the mac pro back w WDC thomas is one of the lucky few thomas is very well known editor he's worked on some some big projects ed sheeran lego movie the music video game of thrones apple privacy commercials privacy commercials thomas did those based out of london and more importantly apple has entrusted entrusted you with one of these fancy new mac pros for two or three weeks now before launching a we're able to bring to the audience and one who's actually been using the computer hey thanks for having me on guys thomas you've done some other stuff with apple in the past you did the review of the original touch bar macbook pro i mean you're just a power user i i mean video editors are legendary for the amount of ram and storage and data that they can burn through on their project so i know that you've been using apple for a long time but just tell us a little bit about how your story got started with apple yes oh i thought DC max when i was at university i got one of the how was it unique long about how the white i'm steve new my better told me this atta why mac with maybe a small screen and no the site camera that was my first that was my first mike okay so mid-2000s some that yeah that that's where i am yeah and and then yeah and then i ended up with the white mac book as well and then graduated to a aluminum i mac with the black back and then where am i now now and then since then i've been using laptops when i started as a professional editor the company has a work have often had desktops to my personal custom computers will become laptops because i ks needs to be on sat or editing from home and different things like that i was thinking about that original white i met when you said it that's that's the one with the clear keyboard right i think so the the keyboard had a clear case it was a great idea like beautiful in the apple store but as soon as you brought it home and like hair and crumbs and things started falling off to two years finally of colleges definitely murky in that yeah sorry yeah food food late night crispy doing stuff right now but yeah so when i i i i was using final cut pro so the classic version of a back then which was probably gonna cut pro four point five or whatever they ties with HD yeah yeah and that's what i used for myself high meditating and stuff like that and then when i finally got a job became a runner or became an assistant in posthouse working i'm doing all the technical stuff and i was learning i actually started the forgotten about this my life actually so long now but i was i was in an old apple final cut posthouse back in when i moved to london it must have been two thousand hates i guess maybe even longer than that and it was a place called unit and it was all final cut pro at a san and yes so i started work there assisting with all this these sort of high end fondaco workplace for TV in an and commercial work how unusual was that at the time to be in a in a business you know commercial business that was all foul oh cut i didn't think it was not unusual it wasn't a most places were avid but then farnell car classic will probably be fun cut six and seven by that point that was definitely way more dominant than premier or anything that i don't think where we are now we're premier is now is not what it was like then so final cut seven was definitely in a really good place but that was it was definitely unique that that was a company that was fun prior i think it was quite known you know so of in in london for being you know they were that was the selling point that they completely run of final cut pro and it was caught they used colors well if you remember color which came we're unaccustomed to see that was really interesting i mean but back then i was you were using module loading in from tape from digital we'd be loading in russia's for the for the editors and breaking down the tapes and then land back to tape and pick stuff out to broadcast all on tape so you know he'd we'd be yeah the crazy stuff you had to do with the kind of frame offsets because nothing would be would you in video would be out of sync automatically get when you laid back to tape so you had to compensate for that by framework to lay back the first ten seconds check it was insane commend lay the whole thing back it was it was quite different time yeah it's amazing how much is that industry has changed in the last ten years yeah and when our first just to carry on from my story my backstory there i was editing music videos as for friends and my bedroom in the evenings basically when i wasn't working in this basement machinery and then the production company was that they had an editor they went to all the time so they started sending my edits to him for feedback must not getting this feedback from his editor really it was actually amazing feedback really productive active constructive feedback and eventually he just sent me an email and said do you want to quit your job that you'll have to take pay cup come here and can be a runner and mike tea and coffee for clients and i can start giving you music videos that i can't do because he i guess he saw something in me that you know he kind of thought was yeah something he he thought was a talent that was gonna grow well he saw the had something in music scene that he liked so i went now this pay cal three grand pay-cut together which time very much so that was a big chunk of my income gone but then in the first two years in that job i edited it's sixty music videos in the first two years while so i was just a very quickly they had to employ another runner because i was doing too much editing work and then yeah a career slowly after start they're doing music videos and then more commercials and then are finally than i was approached by another company a big company called tremendous sandwich where i am now and moved over here about seven years ago i've been here ever since and then since then actually we've taken the editor who got me the job job initially he has now moved here as well now back in the bands back together now throughout this time where you apple hardware and final cut was the the those your weapons of choice throughout this period yeah always final i mean a lot of the commercializing of that song being done in avid the boss of the company i was i us that was cutting an avid but the guy who got me to come and join the company called bryce he was using final cut and we would have been easing cheese grater maybe there would have been g five's at out of the mac cheese greatest uh general thomas site they were they were either pro g fives with apple oh cinema displays at that point and then eventually moving onto i max yes it was always apple hardware the point quickly going to make was that when our first iding music the video is if someone had something on film which happens occasionally music video is it always used to come on this SD digital data and i remember i used to ask ask for a quick time and it was back then it was so hard to get anyone's transfer anything to a quicktime free and they wanted extra money for it because it was the it was the outlier it wasn't the normal the thing that was done so it's really weird thing now requested type would be laughed at the rim overly guess it is crazy and and so you've been doing apple hardware final cut fulltime we're going to talk later in the show about final cut because i know there's a lot of listeners now you know final cut us to mortgage your house to buy final cut now it's like three hundred bucks it's a lot easier to get into it and i definitely want to talk to you about that later with all your knowledge but before we get there i'd like to get kind of an overview of the types of workflows you're doing as an editor currently maybe if we'll talk a bit by the company i'm working out and the kind of stuff we do in the workplace we we have helpful yeah so it kind of we've got about eight to ten at is his hair trim editing we do a lot of the main bread and butter is high end television in commercials music videos as well and then we will say there's a few kind of TV shows and things that get done one of the addresses what's on a black mirror that someone else doing being a full pot channel four drama the my men and you know the couple of the guys have done feature films as well but the main day today stuff is music videos and commercials says about eight to ten his hair we've got a few assistance and a few junior editor who kind of stuff his yes so we work closely with the production companies and directors mainly and they you know they're going out and shooting all the stuff they will bring us the beginning of we'll drive them tunnels or a you know an upload the plates more often now you know so we can download with the russias and typically will be working with HD files so you know everything that show maybe it'd be helpful KO higher and it'll be crunch down to ten eighty pro proxy and yeah we're ingesting that strains final cotton with with we're counting with the offline russia's like that we're doing as much as we can make it look gray and sound gray and rebuild the story visually officially.

We need to firemen and you just ran it was it was amazing. The bell rang and off you went. I'm very good and very specific acidic situations and it was very funny because while you were doing it you were like all business. I got one point. I walked up behind you. I said hey i got this nice cool glass of water. Do you want me to put it on the desk. You can have a sip if you want and it was like we're having none of it. There was nothing funny to that all business all business anyway good for you good for you i oh i'll put some links in the show in that people can see these photos. It's kind of crazy and then of course you had the added difficulty that an increasing number of makeith finish their lunch rush.

We've set up a newsletter and there's an link in the show notes. It's the newsletter it's not going to bomb you with information but what it is going to do is when the show's publisher publish you're going to get an email with picture if there are pictures from the show <hes> show description and all the links so you can have all those saved to your inbox directly <hes> <hes> there is a fair bid of expensive time put into doing this so we're calling it an experiment.

You know there's something that we've been asked a couple of times about as it's actually a pretty good idea and and we're making a real effort especially in our interview episodes to include photos from our guests you know when appropriate when they could share them <hes> and so i think this'll be a fun way to continue to make the show notes sort of a more rich experience and honestly for my point..

"My name is Steven hack at I'm joined as always by my friend, and your friend David Sparkes. Hello, Mr. Hackett. How are you today? I'm doing well. I'm excited to get into some some IOS apps looking at our list. There's a lot of a lot of fun stuff to talk about in here. Yeah. We thought it'd be fun for an episode just to talk about the Iowa's apps that we use. We've been very MAC heavy as of late. But there are some apps. I mean, we're just getting back from WWE. I did it. I Pat only and you know there's some apps we use to get by that's right. Yeah. So these are some things that we use. I think both we didn't limited just the ipad iphone and ipad things for work things for personal life just apps that we go to on a regular basis. And I have some I think you do too, that maybe aren't like, a regular basis, type at, but when you have a certain type of task or certain type of project its your go-to on. I that's an inch. Interesting way to filter these as well. Yeah. When you have a very particular set of problems. Yes. Yeah. You need a very particular set of set of applications to solve it. So we're going to go through these all these will be listed in the show notes in order, so you can check him out on the app store, as always those, those are there for you to go explore later, and now I know in house into shows like this, or like when I read, Federico's, big Iowa's, twelve piece a couple of weeks ago, I picked up apps like, as I was reading his story as, oh, this solves the problem that I have. And you know, you go download it and come back. And so, hopefully it is it is useful for people today have what we find one or two that, that you, you discover today, so I, I guess I'll get started..

"I wanted to set it up fresh, which is a huge hassle. Takes a lot of time. And I really am not one hundred percent there yet. But what I did. I was I set up kind of my writing and my podcast environments and to even get to that stage, though is there's there's a whole class of apps that are fundamental to all the services and other things in software that use and first and foremost is one password and dropbox because I store so much of my stuff that you and I collaborate on in dropbox, and I need one password to validate the licenses for all the other software, I use so those two along with I guess Email, and I've using spark these days for my MAC stories Email. I install those right away because I need to communicate with people need to find those licenses and then get everything else installed along with that was things like back plays because you need to have off site backups. And then just the things that are guess you. Call them customisations of the way, I work on a MAC things. Like Alfred and joint those are both really important to me because it's it's in my muscle memory to be able to drag things in joint or hit. I haven't mapped to command space hit that combination. Have Alfred come up and do things that I do Alfred. So those are all kind of the first level of things along with things like slack. So that you know, I can stay in touch with you and Ryan and the other people on the team and good task. So I can I can follow my tasks those are all things. Wasn't good task now? Yeah. Yeah. Sneak that beyond me, you know, you knew that for a long time. Now, I think since the end of the year never talked about this. Well, since breaking news Federico good test since I thought you were using Omni focus. You're confusing me with your good friend, Mr. Hackett. So that's baseline stuff. Right. But podcast in is a surprising number of apps, and there are apps here that have overlapped, and I've talked about some of them before. So I'll run through them fairly quickly. But despite the fact that there's overlap I use them all for different things. And that's why have them all one is audio hijack. That's what I record with. So all the files are being recorded audio hijack with a backup with QuickTime, but that's built in. Of course, you have Skype, and you know, that's another one where it's like, okay. I have Skype installed but better have one password close by. So I can get my log into it. And then logic audition audition us just for loudness matching. So that our to track sound roughly the same in terms of the loudness and is atop Rx, which is a very specialized audio processing that I've talked a little bit about here. And there on MAC stories. It's it's pretty expensive. Of software. It doesn't incredible job of making a sound good. It's tuned to the environments of our two recording spaces, which is really cool. So that no matter what I just, you know, I set that up with the new mini it just like grinds right through those files real lot quicker, which has been a lot of fun to to kind of watch. And then, you know, forecast Mark armaments app for trans coding to MP three and Addie meta data to a podcast better touch.

How're you doing Mr. Hackett? Hey, I'm good. I'm excited to to get into this. You know, I like to think I play Mr. audio producer. But just doing vocals is a different ballgame than making your music. This is going to be fun. It's today. Our guest is Yacob. He's Swedish musician who in five years has produced seven hundred videos on music production and not only are they great videos about music production. We're going to talk today, whether you're a novice or a, you know, Berkeley graduate musician. We're going to have some hopefully, some ideas for you. But how to make music with your mobile devices? He produced all of those seven hundred videos on his ipad, no MAC involved. And it's like we gotta talk to this guy. Let's just start off talking about, you know, what are the mobile devices you're carrying around to do all this work on. Well, right now, I'm actually doing all the capturing like cap. During I'm filming filming. I don't know if that's the right word, but I'm using my iphone six s so it's already got some years on it. Right, but works for for everything I want to do and I mostly work with videos in ten eighty p sixty frames per second. And that that's perfect for for YouTube and a lot of my my audience also watches my videos on these I devices, you know, because of my content. So I it just works. I'm also using an I pro- twelve point nine inch. It's the two thousand and sixteen years model, I think the one that's still has a headphone port. And but earlier used an iphone five of Houston, ipad, meaning one and an ipad Amini two, and I used to add it on those and when I started out editing, my videos and doing stuff, I only had the iphone five. So that was basically the only thing I used for the first whole year all of those videos have been made on one iphone why phone five, wow. And you know, I would imagine ahead on Jack is kind of important for a musician. Yeah. It's extremely important. I had this conversation on a.

"Welcome back now I'm Jerry Kyle and we, are talking cars and talking, cars done break time Sometimes. You get caught off guard so Ken stopped. In and. Do you watch, stock. Market very much I actually do the stock report every day Right so you probably see some of the. STAN Ford stock has been falling in Ken. Gotta do the, shout out to Ken to me. And you know they do this. Fifty week fifty two weeks. Change than Ford stock is down eleven point five four percent fifty two week deal and, that's that's a big thing if you're watching stock dying eighty four is the fifty two week low yesterday. When I just looked it up briefly it was nine ninety eight rate about at, that moment and the questions begging. To be asking white wise Ford stock dropping like that, to, give you an idea GM just to be, fair fair and balanced as they say GM stock fifty two week changes his down two point two five percent right supports is clearly down worse but they're all a little down. Because there's a lot going on in the market, and let let me kind of walk you through. My thoughts on his Ford thing on this Jim hacker guy took. Over Ford as chief executive and he was Church kinda with revitalizing a company that was it's been suffering from some slumping profits and rising costs uncertain outlook and I think he's been their. Thirteen months now for recall right and he's. He shuffled Ford, executives around and outlined plans to. Introduce this new sport utility vehicles. And Lincoln cars and that. Was a big thing that he did is he said you know we're gonna drop all, these four door sedans and we're going to go strictly SUV except for just a few specific cars so. Really go all in with SUV's right little bit of the glitch on that is, the new models like the escape. And explorer SUV's are on their way but they won't, begin, arriving till like the second half of two, thousand nineteen I'm sure he had to explain why they're gonna be shutting down these four door sedan production facility so he probably had let that cat out of the bag but. They, basically haven't had the product to fill the, gap in between And people sometimes don't want to buy the car that's not, going to be around tomorrow even though that's not big, scare by. The way sometimes that's a good deal I'm to say the, company's? Stock price was lagging and this this Mr. Hackett kind the cut the engineering costs and improve Ford's fitness and. Yet he hasn't really been forthcoming on how specifically he's gonna get, all that, done and and that's obviously frustrated Wall Street and and gotten him just a little on the nervous site and and I. Think that's what's ended up showing up so. New York Times their their words not mine a slow roll out over recovery cub replan has added to a new, layer to the challenges facing the number two automaker it has trouble on several. Fronts operations in Europe India and South America and those are struggling costs for key materials like aluminum. And steel or rising GM's got that same problem that's part, of the problem with the two percent decrease sales in China have stalled And its model line is short on all the new types of SUV's and. Trucks the buyers are snapping up, in the United, States that's your times, so I think that's probably at I think it'll ring hover yeah I'm not gonna. Give stock. Advice but. I think they're SUV plan is not totally bad, I questioned the all in Iowa There's there's there's. A, few things they're doing there they, know what's going on as far as their stock prices. Are going and everything they are Battling that I. Don't know, if anyone goes to auto blogs or. Go to MSN Riyadh who or anything they always have their auto section and everything like that Ford is all over on those pages if you go there you're going to. See more stories about four than anything else because they are basically opening their doors for everything to try and get their name out there and everything And and whereas these other places are and enforce doing to they're they're kind of cheating the system a little bit I have not, saying but, everyone's got their you know their new technology that they have to hide from. Everybody until it, comes out you, know, and Ford is kind of like. Letting them see their hand a little bit, so they're getting whereas everyone's saying well..
