"Down the results from Apple and Amazon. Gene, let's start with Apple. It's worst holiday quarter in four years. What's holding an apple back? Exactly Nathan, it's rare we talk about an apple miss and I can count three times in the past 20 years that I've been following the company that they have missed. It was a 3% earnings and revenue miss just to put into perspective and the why question. It was predominantly the Mac and their wearables business that accounts for about 20% of overall business. The Mac was down 29%, for example. iPhone was a little bit soft. It was down 8%. The street was looking for down 5, but on a constant currency basis that business was flat. And the headlines don't read well, but if you peel back the layers, it's actually a much more optimistic picture for Apple. Is that their most important part is their customer base, their installed base of active devices. That reached 2 billion. That's up 8% year over year. So that's a big number. It's still growing nicely up 8%. And to put it in a perspective is Facebook is about the same number of daily users and that grows about 2%. And this is a sign that apple's loyal base is increasing. They added more subscriptions, a 150 million than Amazon has in terms of prime subscribers. So it is the tale of the tape is negative for Apple, but if you really peel it back, their customers are more engaged and they're spending more money with them and ultimately that will rebound once the macro starts to stabilize. Let's turn to Amazon, those shares are down the most of the three that reported yesterday we saw a slowdown in ecommerce and the cloud. How big a concern is that? I would have rated this is kind of the middle of the three and so I'm surprised to see it down the most of the three. And the reason why I put it in the middle of the three is that, yes, they are seen as slow down, but they're actually their guidance for March if you do what they typically do, which is coming at the high end of that. It essentially would be in line with where the street is for March. That's a win in this environment, especially given their consumer exposure and what is going on in the consumer spending right now. And so I actually think it's not as bad. I think that the issue when it comes to Amazon is that one of the biggest obviously growth forces behind this has been AWS. And AWS was up 20%. It missed expectations. The street was looking for up 23%, and it has been decelerating quickly a year ago, it was growing at 37%. So we've seen a steep step down. It is the biggest of all the cloud companies. So that's why they have a harder law of large numbers kind of fighting against that AWS growth, but I think that ultimately is that that business probably stabilizes at around a 15% growth and investors can start to know well that we pretty much depend on Amazon and they'll find ways to improve efficiencies, which will improve earnings in the next couple of years. All right, gene Munster, managing partner at deepwater asset management. Thanks for being with us gene and just looking at shares of Amazon in the pre market they are down 5 and a half percent Apple shares are lower by about three to 30%. And alphabet shares the Google parent their lower by 4.3% NASDAQ futures as a whole lower there down 1.4% or a 182 points S&P futures are down 32 points or a drop of 8 tenths of 1% and Dow futures are lower by a hundred points. That's a decline of three tenths of 1%. The ten year treasury right now is up one 32nd for a yield of 3.38%. Just head will get the latest on that disappointing end to tech earnings week as investors await, the January jobs report, that's coming up in our 6 30

In our last minute here, middle of the pack in the market this morning in terms of the losses is Google parent Alphabet a company that a lot of consumers count on for search, of course. How does alphabet get through this tough digital ad environment that we've been talking about throughout tech season? Well, I think from an investor standpoint, the way they get through it is by focusing on expenses and doing similar things to what meta has done. And they made that very clear the word that they use is durable on the court they want a durable business model, which means that at a higher margin model. So they've got a lot of fat to improve on their expense structure. That's one piece. The second is they can inject some excitement around the story with some AI products. I suspect by the summer they're going to have a competitor to chat GPT that may include some integration with Google search, which would bring more real-time results to those of you who have played around with that amazing product. I think Google is going to have something that actually will be better than that. So I think you put the combination of cost savings, excitement around an AI product, and I think you can see a stock do better in the middle part of this year. Yeah, it has been really interesting to see artificial intelligence as something that investors have been hanging their hats on in recent weeks. Thanks as always, gene Munster of deepwater asset management. Managing partner there, helping us navigate the tech story as we wrap up. Tech week in terms of the earnings. Right now, Apple shares in the pre market are down three and a third percent looking at Alphabet. It's down more than 4% right now. And Amazon is leading the declines of the big three. Those shares are down nearly 5 and a half percent. NASDAQ futures are lower down one and a half percent or a 198 points S&P futures down 33 and

"If there's a global recession here in the stock continues to go lower and he's pledged over a 100 million of his shares. Doesn't that create a really difficult scenario if there are margin calls for Tesla shareholders? Absolutely. And the ledger you just printed out or listed out there, that's on the negative side and I would kind of come back to if the numbers are good if the delivery numbers are good for the December quarter. Everything that we just talked about there probably doesn't matter as much. And I think it really comes down to that. It's the view that Elon is being distracted. These production numbers, I don't know if they've been cut. I would Tesla says that it was the referred to as fake news today. Who knows? But to answer your question is that ultimately all that is anticipation, the substance of this all comes down to, are they going to deliver the cars? And if they do that, the stock goes up if they don't it goes down. Hey Gina, I've already been frustrated by everyone looking way far out and in terms of Tesla and trying to impute evaluation based upon growth that will be there. And I'm not being critical of you on that. I would like though for you to focus on the current macro around the auto sector. I'm actually not that worried about China production at all. In fact, I think some of the issues in China, if you look at the SARS numbers, they've come in dramatically auto demand is just coming down globally. I worry about the cyclicality of a car company. I think it's a car company, talk about that. Well, I see different. I think that replacing a gas for an electric motor is I think it does change the equation. And I think what Tesla has shown is that by bringing together hardware and software, it does create more value and that's why I think that they've done well in the car market and the EV market. So I think the margins that they've delivered have been more tech like they're not true tech, but they're better than traditional car companies. And I think that would be some evidence that it's more than just a car company. And I agree with you. I've been guilty of looking out 5 years and talking about where Tesla is 5 years and just if I may, I think in two years, it will prove to be some upside here. All right, gene Munster on the Tesla trade. Thanks very much. We appreciate it. Guy adami all the authority. I mean, you heard the questions you heard the commentary is Tesla stock that you want to own right now. I don't think so. It's not trading well. I mean, it's actually technically doing everything you want to see it do if you're bearish or short the name. I mean, to move down to one 67, the subsequent move basically up to 200, failed there and making another run at the Lowe's support in this stock is somewhere between 145 and one 50. And if the tape rolls over, like I think it made from these levels, I think that's where Tesla is going. Shares are at one 73 and change right now in the aftermarket trade. All right, guys, coming up on the show. Are you feeling lucky? Are Tim Seymour is? He's been making some moves in the casino space. We'll bring you his trades coming up next.

"And as no exposure to the now bankrupt firm, the company going on to say crypto remains a non material part of its business. I mean, even if you don't have any relationship with FTX, there's a crisis of confidence across the industry, no matter what. Yeah, so not great headlines. And we've all been through these periods of time, and that they just won't stop because companies put out these sorts of reports. And this is a company I've been positive on, and I was long enough not long ago anymore. And again, you just don't want to see these sorts of headlines for companies that you're invested in for other reasons other than crypto because it does have the potential to be. Listen, look at the way coinbase is training. Look at anything related to some of the banks that we're lending these things. It's just a bad situation. So in the meantime, I think you can steer clear of some of these names. I think the issues for SoFi and I can't speak to what may or may not be going on in crypto, but before these crypto headlines were that this is a company that was priced like a FinTech company. It was a high multiple tech stock, which by the way also has an enormous credit exposure. I believe. I mean, again, based upon their core business. And it's not a good combination. And again, I think you've seen a lot of folks were running two companies that looked like they were reinventing the wheel. And I'm just not sure that that's what we had here, but more importantly, I just get concerned about credit exposure. I get concerned about the consumer lending. And then the multiple never made sense. At some point, at some point, I don't know when that point is, a lot of these companies are going to be biased, guy. I mean, in the carnage, there's going to be some that emerge, people will still want access to crypto in some way, a way to buy and sell it. So how do you think about that about that point in time? Yeah, let's back out crypto for a second. Listen, in terms of coinbase and gene Munster came on a year or two ago and said, coinbase will be the bank of the metaverse. And that still might prove to be true, but obviously we're years away from that, but in terms of a name like SoFi at a $4 and 80 cent stock given the just got obliterated today. I think it came within three cents of an all time low, whatever. Here we are. I mean, I think you're making a bet on the expertise and the navigation skills of West Point grad Anthony noto. And at this level, I'm willing to make that bet. All right, well, the biggest crypto exchange seeing some bearish activity and its options today, my co has the action Mike.

"Made fun of him. And I poked fun at his physical condition and I really feel crappy about it because that's wrong. Like I said to you for weeks and weeks and months and months, everybody feels sorry for a guy who suffered a massive stroke. And all that put that he went through and his family went through. And today I got carried away and made some noises and stuff and kind of made fun of him. And that's absolutely wrong. I don't feel any less sorry for him today than I did prior to the election. It doesn't mean I'm in shock that a guy in his condition and especially with his radical ideology could get elected to the U.S. Senate, Pennsylvania voters are completely deranged who voted for him. But having said all of that, I should not make fun of him or make noises and pretend that he's Herman Munster and all of that. That's wrong. And that's not who I am, and I feel kind of I just got carried away. And I'm sorry. I really am. I'm sorry that I went there.

"It and run this like a private company that it will be. And we'll see what he pops out. I was encouraged to hear his commentary yesterday that he does not want this to become a free for all because obviously he's going to take some of the governors off of what you can say. And I think that's important. Ultimately, when you put this all together, Twitter is still a side project for Elon. His true passions are Tesla and SpaceX and I think that we're thinking a lot about it now, probably a year or two from now we're going to be thinking a lot more about SpaceX and Tesla. Just about 30 seconds left gene we've seen obviously tech shares broadly get punished this week. Would you buy back into tech at these levels? I think so forth. If you have a perspective, I think that more than two year perspective. We own some of these. We own meta, we own Amazon. They've had a tough week, but we're not selling them. And ultimately, I think that they have assets that are hard to replicate. 40% of the world's population visits a Facebook property on a daily basis. Amazon has logistics that no other ecommerce company can touch. And I think you probably have to assume that all that we're in economically is going to fade or we'll go away eventually. We'll stabilize and these companies are going to right size their growth rates back to what we're accustomed to.

"On the heels of apple's June quarter earnings report, nobody seems to have changed their rating on Apple shares. Though apple's three O didn't have word of two price target changes. One analyst lowered their 12 month price target on Apple shares by 5 bucks to one 85, while another raised their 12 month price target on Apple shares by 5 bucks to one 85. Because the world's a funny place, Raymond James analyst Melissa Fairbanks did the cutting, though she did reiterate her firm's outperform rating on Apple shares. Honestly, there was nothing in the part of her note posted on Apple three to indicate why she lowered her price target. Maybe $190 is just a bit too high in what she refers to as times of uncertainty. Bumping their target up was Evercore analyst Ahmed darian ami. To the analyst, Apple revenue appear more driven by supply constraint versus macro worries, though they did note pockets of softness due to macro. Still, he and his think oppo remains uniquely positioned to sustain mid to high single digit sales and low to mid teens, earnings per share growth in fiscal 2023 and potentially beyond. He's gotten outperform rating on Apple shares and the aforementioned price target of $185. Pulling from a couple of other notes of note, loop ventures, principal gene Munster, hung on what he saw as the most important comment from the call, it was Apple CEO Tim Cook's assessment that in respect to the iPhone, there was no obvious evidence of macroeconomic impact during the June quarter besides foreign exchange. Like a guy from Gilroy Munster says the iPhone is stronger than an acre of garlic. Taking a more balanced approach be a base securities analyst womb C Mohan listed a few points for the bulls and the few points for the bears from Apple's call. Points on which bears will focus include gross margins that are heading back lower for foreign exchange and mixed reasons. Slowing growth in services and weakness in the wearables home and accessories category. Meanwhile, points for the bulls include the record June quarter, strength for iPhone and apple's growing installed base and record number of switchers. Mohan reiterated his firm's buy rating on Apple stock, saying many issues with the company seem cyclical, not structural, his firm's price target on the shares is a familiar sounding $185. At least a couple of times on last week's earnings call, Apple executives mentioned trade ends and trade ops and relation to iPhone, now 9 to 5 max says they are part of a revamp of apple's online iPhone shopping experience. The piece says Apple has given the iPhone checkout page on its website a major overhaul. The new design features larger images, quicker access to shopping assistants, and more. There's also a bigger emphasis on trading in other devices as well. I will say the new design is more inviting with much larger pictures than the previous version. While bigger images are big, 9 to 5 max says one of the biggest changes with the redesign is that there is a larger emphasis on trading in after you configure your iPhone, you'll be asked whether or not you have a device to trade in.

"Cloud computing businesses can churn out revenue, even as consumers worry about inflation and the company gets serious about curtailing expenses. Gene Munster is managing partner at Luke ventures. Surprisingly, we're still early in ecommerce. If you look at the most aggressive estimates are that 25% of what's bought in the U.S. is bought online globally 20%. And that eventually is probably going to be 50 or 60%. And when you have a company like Amazon that's building infrastructure that really no one can compete with, those types of factors are why this growth rate can continue. And we're looking at Amazon stock up now by 11.4% after last night's earnings also reporting last night was Apple out of Cupertino, apple up now by 3.2% one 62 33 for Apple heading the other direction though. Intel shares they are down 8.8% after earnings, but also after last night's report, Roku, plunging now by 25.5%. It is one O two on Wall Street and that means it's time for the market drivers report.

This weakness is pulling another China tech ADRs, including Padua duo, JD.com, and Baidu all down about 4% or more. To the upside though, is BP up about 3% as the energy giants ADR rallies on strong quarters and record profits out of both ExxonMobil and Chevron. Charlie? And we thank you very much.

"Welcome back to fast money. Apple celebrating 15 years of the iPhone today. That one product still the biggest revenue driver for the company. But as growth slows, what will or should be the next one? For more on this, let's bring in gene Munster of loop ventures. Gene great to have you with us. Hi. Hi, one criticism. If you want to call it that of the company is that they need recurring revenue. Not just services revenue, but revenue that is recurring. And I'm wondering how you think the company gets there if it needs to. They need to get there, I think, for the valuation to break out to new levels. I think that if they get into new categories, whether it's the headset we've talked a lot about, potentially something in the car, not saying they're going to get there, but that would be something that would make it so they don't have to do that. But I want to more directly answer your question is that I believe that Apple wants to sell hardware as a service. They've been experimenting with the iPhone upgrade program that has had some success, but the concept of what we've seen are usage the need for more consumer driven tech support over the last couple of years. I think opens the door for them to sell hardware as a service. We refer to this as the 360. We've been talking about it for a couple of years now. And I believe it's still on the docket. What that means is essentially you'd pay Apple one monthly fee like you do with some of their content. You can get arcade, you can get news. You can get TB plus, but imagine doing that for, let's say, a $150 a month, and then you get upgraded every couple of years for your watch and every three years for your computer. That would, I think, have a significant re rating and as far as the timing on that, it is a function of time. It's probably more three years out than one year, but I believe that eventually this 360 bundle will come to life and will satisfy this nagging question around visibility. Hey, gene, it's Karen. So that's a really interesting model. What I want to switch for second to another one, which is the car which you touched on, which would seem to me to be just a gigantic capital expenditure, not the can't afford it, they can, but what do you think of that endeavor do you want them to do that? I would love it if they do it. I'm not going to say that they're going to do it today, but I can say what we saw at WWDC around them taking over the whole console and having 15 major OEMs adopted. I think is testimony to the traction that consumers have wanting to integrate their mobile experience into a driving experience. And so the CAPEX question just quickly to address that is that it is a big number. They can afford it. But I think that there is a shift in terms of how I think about it. I do believe that making a car an electric car is less parts. I think it's less complicated than would meet the eye. It still would be a huge benefit happened. Apple wants to do something, whether they get there in that remains to be a question. If they do it, they the stock is going vertical because the addressable market, they can get 10% share of the automotive market that will effectively double their business. I mean, this is the equivalent. The car would be the equivalent to the iPhone as to the pod. Life to date. They've sold, now that's their product's done but 450 million iPods. They sold 2.3 billion iPhones like today, it's now 50 plus percent of the business. That's something that the car could be there. I hope they do it. Fingers crossed. It's going to have to wait a few years to find out. Jane, there's a lot of concern, I think, going into their quarter, which is a month from now. But for the first time in a while, you can make a very compelling case for Apple and valuation, probably close to, I don't know, 20 times next year's numbers, you back out the cast, obviously cheaper than that. What are your thoughts going into earnings here? I think you need to be cautious across all of that. I think apple is no exception. I'm a big believer. I think this is a $250 stock. I think that the odds are that it probably goes lower, just like everybody else into the print. I hope I'm wrong, but that's the bet and the reason is that you're just talking about with FedEx. If you give positive guidance in this environment, your tone deaf. And so Apple gets that, they do give a form of guidance. I suspect that it's going to be something like the June quarter was great. But there's uncertainty, so we're going to play it a little bit more cautious in terms of our outlook. And I think that even great companies that has a negative impact. That's trading. I think if you think about investing, what they're doing with this 360 bundle, we talked about other product categories still very bullish, but I suspect that a lot of tech is going to sell off on this June print. Gene, last quick question, tonight we got RH revising its guidance lower after 27 days after they gave earnings and they gave a forecast then. I'm wondering, are there any data points that you've seen so far that get you concerned? Maybe not just a single one, but a combination. Between Microsoft's FX warning or target or what we heard tonight from RH. The pieces made me most concerned is some work that CNBC did. There was a forget what it was 20 or 25 fortune 100 CFOs, I believe, loosely remembering this, but this was recently and all of them said that they're less optimistic about the back half of the year. I think that's all you need to know. As far as incremental data points, specific to Apple, as we look at their lead times, the lead times continue to improve. That's hard to say whether that's a function of improving supply chain or decreasing demand. I think it's probably the former. And I think that just across the board, one last data point is around big tech that ten of the 20 big tech had negative commentary around the June quarter when they reported march since that two of them Microsoft you mentioned and Tesla have come out and said negative things about the kind of what the environment that we're in. So call it 12 of 20. I think that that number is going to go up even without any specific that it's simple psychology from my perspective and I want to leave with where we've left before that I think all of this is going to be painful, but I think it does still set up for resetting growth rates in 2022, which does set up for I think what's going to be a strong year for tech in 23. All right. Gene, thanks, gene Munster, Luke ventures. All right, well, yeah, I mean, I guess that there's a reset this year..

And not surprisingly, he is still there. 9 to 5 Mac has young MC reiterating his belief in a mixed reality headset from Apple by late 2022. He is not expecting many of them though. According to the analyst, according to the report, more significant shipments of the product won't begin until the first quarter of 2023. Suggesting that the headset will arrive in stores with only a few units available for customers. Remember that tingly feeling you got ahead of iPhone that sense almost of inevitability, I'm getting that again in ways I didn't ahead of iPad. I don't know that my expectations will be anything like reasonable until we finally get an announcement from Apple. Hopefully we'll get the same how could we be surprised surprised that Munster and the rest of us got off the iPhone, and hopefully we'll get that this year. More news in a moment. But first a word from headspace. Meditation made simple. New year, new you. Has there ever been a more hackneyed phrase?

"The ninety-six fm wanna pop out to mt. You formerly known as cit speak was lisa about the cold read. What what is it. It's a campaign or or what is it lisa. Good morning. good morning jay. How're you doing and thanks so much for having us on to chat about code reds. It's it's a period digging project actually is what it is and so what we're doing is we're providing free sanitary pads and tampons at sixteen locations around the campus and then there's also some reusable period underwear and moon cops available from the students union offices. I'm packs for people. Take home at the weekends as well sponsored by little so not only. Are we providing these free products. But we're also trying to tackle to boo stigma by sharing information and events and you know debunking misinformation. that's out there about periods of misinformation. Well i suppose that you can't go swimming. Perhaps when you have your period that you shouldn't exercise or that you can't get pregnant when you have your period like all of those things aren't entirely true so it's about i suppose sharing the truth and also trying to reduce embarrassment around periods. Because there's actually keyed no need for people to be you know shoving at pad up their sleeve or into their pocket run. They're running into the bathroom. Because that's what happens. It's kind of like you're hiding it from the word that you actually are just enormous human. This can really silly. Men's question bush line do every woman. Nas carry an emergency pad or tampon in their handbag. Just in case sure so you think that would be the case and you think yes. You might have a spare one floating around the bottom of your handbag. Would actually we know that. National data regarding consistent poverty rates suggests that fifty three thousand to eighty five thousand women and girls may be at risk of period poverty. Which means that you don't have the financial the finances basically the products that you need and we also know one in two teenagers in ireland. Have at one point or another not been able to have access to the products that they need like when you put that into. It seems like massive number when you put it into the college perspective where you might have. Fifty is in your pocket for the week and of that has to come your food. Your maybe supplies for class if you needed to say lab coats are notebooks pens or whatever and whenever you need during the week and then you get to friday and you have. You don't have any products with yet. You get a period. They don't always come at the same time. And you get a period on your flavor in your pocket might be the difference between whether you can go to the shop and buy some supplies.
"munster" Discussed on CNBC's Fast Money
"Welcome back to five twenty. We're following a developing story out of china regulators cracking down on energy consumption causing major power outages in some parts of the country and now names like apple. And tesla are feeling. The pinch has got to josh lipton. Got the details. Hey josh so melissa. Our global supply chain is facing challenges. As we know. Now here comes another possible. One reports indicate that several apple and tesla tesla suppliers suspended some production in china for several days. That's his chinese. Authorities imposed strict energy consumption policies apple. And tesla did not respond to requests for comment but word is saying that response to tight coal supplies toughening emission standards suppliers like union micron technology and east sign precision suspended. Some production for a period analysts point out. The situation is affecting a range of industries in china. It is not just electron everything from steel to soybean till lumina makers they say have been impacted brad gas worth of we're wedbush says this represents in his words another threat emanating from china with the potentially says to disrupt the global economy after all brad says global supply chain already faces challenges from chip shortages to cova disruptions. And this is he says another possible one else speak with gene munster over loop ventures just about how apple and tesla investors should think about these headlines monster says it's ultimately delayed demand for some of their products. He bets not destroyed that demand their customer monster is augury will ultimately wait for those products to become available. Melissa that to you all right josh. Thanks so much josh lipton. I'm tim seymour. How do you think about this particularly as it affects resources like aluminum cement and steel. Well look the move. In commodities is higher and coal prices in china are part of the problem that they're they're actually deferring a lot of projects that are related. Because it's actually too expensive now leaving aside the emissions issues but as i say you buy commodities. Not when they're cheapie by them when they're expensive and that's where we're going and lack of reinvestment in commodity supply chains and mining and capex and then affects is something that's coming around across the board so i i think this continues. I think as far as apple goes We believed in. It's not in the price at that apple. This story is not in the price of apple. that's that should be concerning. And i say that. Because i think the view was apple can exact The most out of the supply chain of almost anybody out there and look at someone that watched the move in nike for slightly. Different reasons but Similar reasons just that production and supply chain. Shutdowns are what they are. Whatever the cause is is something that i think apple investors need to be cautious about here and as its dancing around this one forty-five level it's got some key levels around one forty. I think there could be more pain here. Even though i'm an apple investor trader. And i think the news flow is actually ultimately very positive for apple. It sets it up very well. I mean just some of the best companies in the world that manage the supply change in the best way in the world. But there's only so much they can say to a utility in china who says we don't have the coal to fire up the plan to get electricity to your factory dan. Yeah i think there's a couple things at play. i mean. This might be one attempt for the chinese to hurt our us. multinationals for one. And then to i would say tim's point about not being in the stock. I think it's important to note that both apple and tesla both underperform the nasdaq and the s&p meaningful this year. Even after tesla's big run that has had apples come in a little bit over the last month or so. So i think the bottlenecks. Somebody's supply chain issues are working their way into these names or they have been Throughout the course of the year. And i'll just say anecdotally you made that point about what gene munster said whether it's pushing off demand you know. I tried to buy a twenty four hundred dollar mac book pro the other day. It was not available for a month. So i ended up trading down to a computer. That was the thousand dollars less. And then if you go and look at a lot of the iphone thirteen that just got launched their shipping out. Maybe a month ahead of time or a little more lead time so You know. I would expect you for guidance. On a lot of these companies that rely on those supply chains to be really murky when we get them over. The next week's karen i felt like gene. Munster was channeling you when he talked about a sale delayed and not denied. But at what point are you concerned. That might be denied. I mean. Dan was denied as twenty four hundred dollar laptop. Well a lot of people would deny dan something reading too much into that. But i think he was channeling you to this deny or delay i think for you know the the thirteen. Somebody really wants one. They're going to wait and get it whenever whenever it is. I also thought that for the autos I think we will see that. Just delayed but to tim's point it it. It does start to be problematic at some point if for no other reason that it's more expensive to make things when you have to wait and wait and wait for parts if no other reason than that and that's assuming all the stale the sales stay as they would have so. I think this is bit of a problem for global. Gp but i am optimisitic long long apple as well and i'm still long. Gm given their problems. Also all right we gotta get to.

It's been it's been rumored for a little bit Scott some more hard core info. Sorry say about rob zombies upcoming munster's that he's working on it says that it's going to be really simultaneously on peacock which is the mbc streaming service and into theaters as well so it will be a movie turns Or the same with which a lot has been I don't know what what i didn't see or did not see was whether it's gonna be like the the movie's gonna be a kickoff to a Show or what's going on. But i did see that for sure that sheri moon zombie his wife Jeff daniel phillips both Already signed on as actors in the in the movie. So i mean i'm a big fan of the monsters. I hope he doesn't make like i mean okay. So there's the original nineteen sixty seventy s era monsters and there was a couple of like Fulling films and then there was like at like at nineteen eighties. Early nineties reboot monsters for her monster. Something i can't remember what it was so like in two thousand twelve. Their jenner finery would've called something like whatever. Whatever that is the street address address and i guess it was like not the dark or something. I'm not sure. Grandma's vampire where he may showed him and like he should have full body in a close on wasn't like out of control. Like abbas kind is allowed control. Yeah i mean who knows. I mean with me. I can't imagine it's gonna be like not dark. your i mean like. I hope that he does like the comedy aspect of exists kind of the monsters farm. Right i mean this. I mean the some darkness to it but also they can even vol- like i dunno like i'm a big rob zombie fan but like i can't some people may the ever do this. And if you can more power to you. But i can't like lay down to fall asleep. Two thousand corpses. It's not like a movie that i could fall asleep to like. It's a a very well made film like it's great horror film. It's slasher like crazy insanity but on their hands. I mean i'm like with the monsters. I could generally Munster's show right mean different tunnel. I mean it was funny. I mean i don't like so anyway. Here's about that like a money thing man. I mean the most tried the house on outside. I'm looking so that that. Yeah you got With jerry mcconnell playing crash hun didn't see. I didn't see anywhere about jerry o'connell part of that. I mean that would have been great as part of the two thousand twelve one. He's one of those playing on these. I think threatening him sliders. Yeah yeah that's right. He played here hitter. Monster in the know is it. Not henry ho. Gosh what's government herman. Yeah i said it right. There was time he played herman in the two thousand twelve inch or two thousand seventeen years from each slovak. Got the address as the title. He played herman allen show ads. That was pretty good. He was a little more twisted than some other stuff. That the initial showed in as far as the nicer grandpa's news. More naked grandpa than i would expect but it was good far as like reimagining. I mean i don't know the guy did pretty good with how wingstop right so the different tone to sega's we'll see i mean i don't really feel like Week of comedy at all. So i mean i've like the balance because you have the dark stuff with the same time i mean you said you did see the pilot. Yes i did a couple times is pretty good but as far as the thing. That's the one that has to a grandpa anything. I don't know maybe a that idea. Jerry wasn't green help. But i mean nowadays doesn't look like a straight of frankenstein. Wipe the monster. That is not as doctors from his line. You know what i mean. If he doesn't have that answer right. It doesn't have that look to the problem was because he did like him except with stitch marks and he knew and that of course led to turn harms to heart. And there's all kinds of things off killing people neighborhood. That wasn't the monster doing but it was happening in the neighborhood so of course sort of all kinds of monsters and all about the coming of age for the sun and even that was played pretty. Well maybe it wasn't cool movie pilot. Maybe that would have done better for it. But i mean i liked it just fine. I don't think i know like you're saying rob. Zombie doesn't necessarily sell the idea of comedy. And the main difference between like atoms family and the monsters. Launchers was more funny and not like slashed funding like it was more funny out of the two things a similar because he definitely are as far as the thing. I guess we'll see what happens. The sheri moon. Vienna makes sense kazoo. Castles wiping everything rousing. Hajjis.
Monster Hunter Rise on Nintendo Switch
"First we're going to dig into the big monster. Hunter rise game for nintendo switch which launches on march twenty six. Now full disclosure. I'm just getting into the series myself with monster. Hunter is dying to learn more about the game from all of you expert. So mike and you're before we get into munster specifically. How would you describe the series. Maybe the basic gameplay to people. Who might not be as familiar with it serb so the way that i would take. This one is action. Rpg's series play it. Solo better played with friends. Go up on locally. Which you're going to be doing is taking down. Big mosser's variety weapons. Once you defeat those monsters the items of drops that you get will help you build new new weapons new armor and other items to help take on even bigger threats so a lot of battles lot of co-op and a lot of fun and i had a lot of fun playing with you guys and in the demo. Yesterday we took some time to run through a couple of the The missions and one of the things that jumps out to me right away as course you can just jump right in and start running with france and enjoying the game but there is a lot there. There's a lot of systems you know. It seems like the more you play it. The more you realize just how nuanced it is in the more there is freda to master. I guess definitely. It's a very easy to start like. Most aims swinging around a sword or shooting weapon but there's a lot of systems in there could be tricky but once you get the hang of the flow is fantastic. Yeah there's there's definitely a lot of depth to the combat in particular Yeah like mike said it's a it's an action. Rpg so equal parts of each side right so on rpg side. You're building out your character with With equipment but on the action side Yeah we're we're. We're definitely proud of the the work that our team in japan has put into this. Oh absolutely i know that. This series has a a huge kind of core following the of super fans and stepping. And i know that you've been one of them for quite a while. So what is it about this game. That air this series. That just really appeals to you. It's just one of the most rewarding games i've ever played. I typically at least you know historically really enjoy games for a story and world building an exploration and while that stuff is part of monster hunter. It really turned me onto playing games for skill in in a way that i hadn't really considered or thought i was interested in before because it really trains you to be super observant and pay attention to the monsters and really get a feel for what they're doing and how that's gonna affect your way of interacting with them and china strategize against taking them down because it really is super different with each one. It's not just how they move but they can do to you and how you can use the world to your advantage and things like that feel smart when you play yeah you know from my newbies perspective. When we tackled some of the the monsters yesterday it was a big encounter like that kind of becomes like a a prolonged boss fight right and like i came in there and i was just use pretty quickly. I was hacking slashing. And i was you know healing myself. I needed to but you know i was kind of watching you guys to give me some tips and you guys were approaching it. Especially depending on what happens. You took and what your strategies were from very different perspectives. And you guys. Were kind of thinking about a lot of things that i wasn't quite thinking about yet so But getting to monster hunter is specifically for nintendo switch. What are some of the new features that that people who have played past. Monsanto games can look forward to sure so going to that one year recovering another one but i will take the wire bug which is probably one of the bigger ones You know everyone can choose their weapon but everybody gets a wire bug. Essentially what this is going to let you do is traversed the stage a little bit easier. The element of verticality is definitely leveled. Up for muslim is experience so instead of being sort of a flat field or flat plane can run up walls. You can run up. Trees buildings really explore the environment to take in more find buffs and items so on and so forth You can also use combat too so every one of the fourteen weapons has different abilities using these Or sorry a silk fine skills as all To take down the monsters and essentially have different angles or different Yeah chances to take down the monster so you you really throw me off balance. They're thought you're going to go with the dog thing. Did you just just pund us with the balance. The dog one go for you. Yes oh so. It must rise. We have the the debut of of power. Sorry pal moods which are canine. Which now you can you can take them on On the hunt with you alongside. Previously almost games in the series. Let you take a cat. Feline companion so now the first time ever. We're bringing dogs in so doug doc. People rejoice function a little differently too. So the salom you can actually ride as sort of like a mountain get around faster. It's more offensive has a little little ninja daggers. In his mouth and weapons. That can help back while the pallet goes a little bit more supportive. It'll sort of leave. Healing wells around the map for you to help you out. Do other things too. It's really up to your choice but i really really really liked That's my favorite. It's going to be hard not to pick that.

The Pros and Cons of Selling Seasonal Products Online
"So we, we have an interesting topic for today I thought would be fun to to bounce back and forth. That's why we wanted to do A. Dual podcast today because I think there'll be some different opinions and it's kind of the right time of year to be talking about this, and also because we're GONNA be talking about seasonal products if you're. Thinking about doing seasonal price your way too late but there's certainly a lot of seasonal type products that are going to be selling very well in the coming weeks things like Halloween, costumes and Christmas lights or Minora's or New Year's goggles or whatever it might be. Thought. This would be a good time to just chat about that. Yeah absolutely and We've been rolling out a new feature every week through email, which is basically unveiling Amazon's biggest trending keywords. We look at keyword sort of moved up and down the most in the last week. So every week we email out the top keywords. So it kind of lends well to that new series that we have going through re-conquer to, and through this search keyword analysis, he really sees some trending keywords which often correlate seasonality. So looking at this week's not. A lot of seasonal products definitely one here, Sakai decorations I have no idea what right have no idea what succo? Suka. Decorations were I guess at some Jewish holidays far as I know never heard of it. Yeah. But anyways, it's one of the top keywords on Amazon right now. So if you had SUKA decorations, you're probably killing it radio interesting. Yeah. The one last week that really blew me away was the spike him stuff I'm like, why is that such a big thing? All the site did you figure that out? No have no idea I would think. That'd be something that would be more popular when people are traveling or people being paranoid about spy Cam, and actually different of ours is in front of the podcast. Allen sells these types of things and also the types of things the discover spy equipment, but y all of a sudden. Last week I have no idea. Yeah. Wonder if it had anything to do with kids going back to school and people are spying on teachers in some regard or like although I don't know how you stick in like a camera to school. But I would think that there has to be some correlation there to school and kids being away from home. That's just my feeling but I could be completely wrong I. I would love to know why spy cams are so hot right now. You know it's interesting. But as you ask Alan will actually I didn't even think to do that when I when I saw that. But now that we mentioned it, I'll definitely do that because I'm interested. But I mean seasonal products come with with some challenges and there's different types of seasonal products and weep sell some seasonal products with ice wraps I mean they're definitely more popular in the summer as people are more active and so our sales in July or way higher than they are in December, and so it's definitely a seasonal product and it's very predictable and there's other types of seasonal products, things like Christmas lights that are. A lot more accelerator binary I mean try selling Christmas lights in July you might have some struggles and so basically for six weeks around the Christmas holiday Christmas lights like crazy and then you're opportunities over. So when we talk about seasonal price a commune, a couple of different things. Yeah. Well, I think every product has some seasonality to no matter what even the least seasonal. PRODUC probably around the holiday time around Christmas and November they're going to see a huge surge in the product. So it doesn't matter if it's an everyday item like a garlic press, it's probably going to see a huge surge in November December just because of the holiday buying season. So every product has some degree of season to it where you have certain months of the year. Where you get more sales than others but obviously, like you mentioned, there are super products things which normally relate to holidays in some regard for us we had I guess somewhere in between kind of your average seasonal variation product, super seasonal products with boating products and boating products definitely spring summer seasons they absolutely surge and sales in the summer tend to be about two or three. Times higher in the winter but sales don't fall off a cliff like they do for. Christmas. Lights in July as voting products or is year round demand for just tends to be two or three times higher in the winters. So or the summer action say so I think that's the big I guess comparison we WanNa make is between those kind of degrees and spectrum of seasonality. And personally I like products that. Rely on Q. Four. To make your year, we have a kind of a wide variety of products and some of them do require hugh for to make our year. But Isis is definitely one of those brands that actually there is no spike in the fourth quarter believe it or not. Even with what you're talking about. They're just there isn't even a blip for November December because I mean we still sell well, but it isn't. It isn't any higher than October. So it's it's interesting versus something like color. Where in the fourth quarter was like our entire year even though we would sell throughout the entire year. The fourth quarter is our entire year. While baby, you know the stuffed animal stuff like the fourth quarter our entire year. And it's stressful just out of curiosity for ice wraps. How much Increase. UC during the summer is like tanner twenty percent or is it more like one hundred percent compared to the colder seasons where people are? By getting active in hurting themselves. The four to six months in the hottest Munster somewhere between fifty to one hundred percent from the baseline. And the other Munster down but not zero mean. There's still lots of other things that happen that that aren't reflected upon being warm a month with me things like a knee replacement surgery will you know that doesn't really matter what time of year it is in fact, a lot of people want to do those types of things in the winter when. They're not active anyway hip replacement surgery bill talks, breast augmentation people having kids, and all these different things that people use hunting tax four but you know people that are out playing recreational tennis or soccer or going hiking in their sedentary for the winter months when they go back out, they pull something or heard something sprain something whatever it might be and those types of injuries. I think were a lot of our products are sold interesting. Yeah I. Mean I me personally I would never think that ice wraps have that much seasonality to it. But when you start to explain it totally makes sense and they'd gang goes to our point that we're making every product even though the service does not appear to have any seasonality probably has some degree of seasonality to it. And the thing I. Love Ice Rob is actually helps normalize our sales as as a company year round because there are other products again are pretty fourth quarter heavy, and so you know the thing that was depressing about ice wraps was when I was the only thing that we had was in the winter months of things are slow you kind of panic or whatever, and so we we have a pretty smooth curve company now because our fourth quarter so strong. It kind of normalize ourselves
Apple wants even more subscriptions from you
"A new computer will you need apple care warranty protection you know while listen music or read an article on that iphone or IPAD? Well, guess what bear subscribe to Apple Music or Apple News Now apple which reported twenty six point four, billion dollars worth of iphone sold in the recent porter versus thirteen billion for services is in a unique situation among rivals. It has over one billion people using the iphone a welcome audience to sell more things to. So even just a small percentage of iphone owners say, yes to services apple can still grow look at how apple music has grown to a solid number two behind spotify with eighty million subscribers. That's an eight percent by in from the base. Now, the Google on android operating system actually has more users worldwide than apple's IOS but most android phones are sold by different manufacturers like Samsung L. G. and high sense which prevents Google from working space like apple does. For the last few years, apple has been on a tear to increase its services response rates data. Why iphone owners get so many Nag messages in the fall it looks to go even further per bloomberg by bundling many things into an even bigger subscription play called apple one, the plan is said to offer apple users tab monthly deductions from their accounts for Apple Music, news? TV, arcade an I cloud. Now companies love this stuff because it's consistent steady income and if you're dealing with subscription overload now, how many services are on the hook for a monthly? Well, I know investor and analyst Gene Munster from loop adventures. Who thinks that apple's actually going to go beyond subscriptions to hardware subscriptions as well

John Doesn't Like Animal Crossing
"Animal. Crossing is a game that came out at the beginning of all this lockdown nonsense that we are taking seriously and is not nonsense whatsoever and where you inhabit human and the town of animals and you can catch fish you can you can. You can grow trees of Fruit. You can go into debt to a raccoon and tell everyone where to live because no one can make a decision except you. I think that's pretty accurate. And also you can fish in it which is Germane to the current conversation. Yeah and also takes place entirely in real time. Yeah it's real time based meeting. Every day is counted as a day in. Munster counted as months. This is a rudimentary explanation. The point being that tomorrow as April first and that means that's a new month and so a bunch of insects and a bunch of fish are going to go away because March has ended. Wait hold on which insects go away the Emperor Butterfly. I don't remember any of the other ones. I'm sorry okay. I think I've got that butterfly. I think I've got that butterfly on lock. Yeah what makes me a little sad as a animal crossing from just the Cultural Zeitgeist on twitter that I have been plugged into some Sasol started. They've been talking about animal. Crossing being this nice relaxing game or you can like kick your feet up. Catch a few fish trade in apron to a deer and get like a tracksuit and return. It's like this nice relaxing time and then all of a sudden yesterday everyone started freaking out because now a fish is gonna go away until December. Yes Oh nine months before you can catch the fish again unless you travel to. Someone who's island is in the Southern Hemisphere. That's an entire baby. John. It isn't entire baby. It's a long time and maybe this is the speaks to maybe a larger philosophical point about animal crossing. But I remember so the first animal crossing when it came out I was a crushingly into I played that game basically every day for like three years. Wow wait the one that came out on the Gamecube. Yeah I did basically everything in the original animal crossing. While was there even to do in the original animal crossing. You know amazingly pretty much exactly the same things there are to do in the new one. That's kind of interesting because the new one and seems like it's newer. It's newer I mean in the original animal crossing. You couldn't travel to other towns as easily. I guess really. It's largely the same except they end crafting but I did pretty much everything in that but when that came out I was a child and now as a fully fleshed man yes as a man of as a man of full flesh as an adult of thirty. I start to wonder now about animal crossing because I'm having significantly less fun and I think a lot of it has to do with like a fear of missing out like if I don't catch this fish I'm not going to be able to have suspicion for nine months Whereas when I was a child those things didn't enter. My mind is like things to be worried about. Yeah I think it's really interesting right now because I played I guess the one that was on the way. I think it was called city folk. And there's a similar thing in that game whereas as the months change different bugs different fish show up and disappear etcetera but now in the wake of this this corona virus landscape where like two months ago. I had diagnosed idea that this is where we would be an effort rooms talking over a voice only Internet p. And like practicing social distancing Texas almost heading toward a lockdown and whatnot so like in nine months what what. What's the world going to be like when I can catch the string fish again and I think maybe that has something to do with people's mania about this fish which by the way? Quick fish tip. I think you can only catch it at the top of a cliff so you need a ladder to get thank Ray The the string fish for those of you. Who Don't know and this is going to be completely useless to you. When this comes out but I can only be caught on the clifftop rivers so if you have an elevated platform or a plateau near the river on your quipped to Catch Yourself. String fish But I think that's something that's pretty interesting that's happening and this is true not only in as as Germane to animal crossing but his true pretty much for everybody is the number of things that we have to care about now is actually pretty significantly truncated. Because we've taken most social obligations out of the sphere of things that we actually need to worry about. So I think honestly if you looked at things I could worry about or could be doing before everything happened it numbered and maybe the low hundreds but now I think the things I have to worry about is maybe eight and one of those things is animal crossing so I worry about a lot more than I would otherwise. Yeah I mean. Remove me from the situation that we're currently in number one. I wouldn't own animal crossing. Yes same probably. Yeah I wouldn't have gone bought this game if I didn't no. I was going to be locked in my apartment for the unknowable future. I would have skipped it over for. I don't know another game Really I only purchased it because I knew what was coming. I was like Oh. This'll be a welcome distraction. But even though I was deeply in love with the original animal crossing and I played the one on the D. S. new leaf. Maybe yeah I think that what was called New Leaf But whatever the DS was I played that But other than that I have not purchased or cared about animal crossing since the release of whatever the second one was so I would not have purchased this game where we not in this situation so really I think without what's going on right now. Neither of US would be this invested in the lives of our animal villagers

Why the 5G iPhone might slow Apple's sales next year
"Five G. won't really be ready in the states for two to three years while some pockets of some major Metros may have blazing fast cellular for nationwide coverage which would still only be seventy five percent of the nation. You're looking at twenty. Twenty two at the earliest in loops estimation and now cult of Mac has munster and fellow loop venture will Thompson saying they think that that lack of coverage will lead to slowing growth for Iphone in two thousand twenty one. The thinking seriously interesting. Basically the pare- expects a surge an iphone sales. This year her when iphone five g's are introduced they think that'll taper off in a pretty big way and twenty twenty one people start to realize that they're not actually under the five G.. Blanket in twenty twenty two when coverage in the states had seventy five percent and up. That's when they think sales will we'll pick up again so a surge this year followed by year over year growth of only two percent in two thousand twenty one likely followed by three years of five five to ten percent annual iphone revenue growth according to Munster and company. It may just come down to WHO's correct. Carriers who have fairly robust rollout predictions were Munster and friends who think carrier predictions are somewhat aggressive. Personally think glucose forgetting about marketing carriers selling the promise of five g may be enough for apple to sell a slew of iphone five. Jeez even the cross the slowness Mo- find out over the next few years.
Colts face different Titans' threat with Ryan Tannehill at QB
"Sunday. It is the titans and Ryan Tannehill. Dan Hill really happy for him. By the way at the Indianapolis Colts Starwood Tannahill and the November December Munster known as Derrick Henry. Well here's the thing with tannehill now barring the complete face plan the question is just how many guaranteed years does he get from the titans because because he's GonNa be the quarterback next year. They're really the running an efficient effective offense. I think he's up around fifteen yards of completion over his last two games. The problem is with Tennessee. Hennessy is. He isn't throwing the ball a whole lot so we had eighteen. Pass attempts against Jacksonville last week. Now of course two rushing touchdowns in two passing touchdowns so he he wants somebody a lot of money in DFS. But it's it's one of those things where decided Lamar Jackson. You really don't think that that's tenable. Because he's a good Ron. Everybody's not an explosive one but then he had the nineteen pass attempts against Kansas City. A couple of weeks ago. This is how they WANNA play. So I think Tannahill the hill is a streamer streamer the quarterback the problem is i. Don't trust any of his wide receivers because AJ Brown had the big game and Jacksonville but two weeks exco. He had the terrible game just one catch against Kansas City. So I'm not really trusting any of that. I think Corey Davis is flat out droppable right now because I have a tough time saying to myself. When am I going to play Corey Davis in any of my line at this point and so I think he's droppable? Ryan Tannehill has accounted for for over nineteen fantasy points and multiple touchdowns in each of his five starts his nine point two yards per attempt is leading the NFL. He's playing really well. And I think the colts are a gettable matchup even if it's not a pristine one but the guy you always trust here is Derrick Henry. You had a third touchdown last week wiped out because of a screen pass. The the colts are really struggling to score points right now and we heard this week. That t y Hilton so far isn't sure he's going to be ready to go on Sunday. This projects to be a lower scoring game in Indianapolis and that means all systems go for Derrick Henry locked in rb one locked in court. DFS play tight end for the titans writings. Nobody worthwhile nobody useful Delaney Walker. Could be back. Johnny Smith didn't even have a target last week. He had a carry their they got one in target for Michael Pruitt. Firkh sir. Didn't have a target Dennis Kelly the backup. Tackle got a touchdown. The tight ends and Tennessee are useless. It's really Tannehill and Henry Henry at this point of the season the only two guys that I can consider with any sort of confidence.
Aaahh!!! Classic Monsters
"We thought we would talk. Hello Classic movie monsters or I guess. A derivative thereof You know all the films like Frankenstein Dracula creature the Black Lagoon and salon boy. Oh boy so yeah so we are. Actually we each picked one classic creature. We're going to be sharing history in details about that creature in the story about the story about them so should we. Should we drinks. Yeah okay so I'm going to actually hand the mic over to Tracy and you because I she has forty drinks that she's going to be sure they're all so I'm focusing on vampires and at total wine there was actually quite a bit to choose from uh-huh depending on how elaborate you WanNa get with the topic. There was even like walking dead wine assume that seemed like sheeting. That seemed like that would be better for his. Obviously yeah it's because it's actually from the TV exactly. So I can't have rick on the cover and be thinking of Bram Stoker works for me with that said that I brought three drinks because being hungover and being two o'clock in me not having lunch it just seems weird like crack. Open a bottle of wine right now but I do have Francis Coppola diamond red plans talk a little bit about Coppola going on. Because you can't really talk about Dracula directly without talking about Coppola and then I also because I don't like I said if I'm going to open that I also brought four. They use my teeth to pull the bag out. I have a lovely temper neo. Oh I love to drag on. And we'll talk a little bit about what dragons dragons relates reverse dragged him the vampire at least in literature but like I said that's a bit heavy so honestly what I think I'm going to start with. Breath is a nice blood. Orange Margarita and S- To serve it in as they said I just live seven houses down I brought on my own Hamilton Sippy Cup when I say Hola pouring that that's awesome chewing that All amazing choices see. That doesn't take a random rationalization cody did you notice that mixture. You have doesn't actually have to kill it in it. Oh I I forgot I also brought my own patrol. Never leave home without it. So the monster I chose today is Where wolves so what? I'm drinking today. Is a Lithuanian heritage. Beer called where wolf it's literally called Werewolf and it has a quite a high alcohol content. So that's so funny because just right before for the show Tracy and I were talking about how we like picking drinks. That aren't just the name. They require narrative. Chris here's where we'll there's nothing with that sound so bitchy all right so Chris is still looking to see what kind of beer is is it. Strong connect have a taste. Today makes one of us. Oh that is delicious is really good. That's dangerous Oh my God. I'm just GonNa Covet this break a command. It's a Belgian dark El okay. I'M GONNA try that too. Yeah so for my drink. I'm actually Old England. I'm actually doing Frankenstein. And so and that was that was what I was GONNA do. I was I went into English. Oh I hear terrible and like you know what. I just can't drink this after my night. I'm going to get something good. Mary Shelley found something actually liked Mary. Shelley well well I whenever you look at all these old stories. I what I think of it is. They all kind of intertwined sometimes in ways and they're just kind of these wild crazy stories stories. So I've found a blackberry merlot called twisted Vine Ohio. Yeah good expected to get a couple. I rolls maybe like really all right so with that I will get into history I didn't want to do anything like Hollywood movie. Poor history because that would have been very long and excessive in instead I thought I would give a weird overview on the history of monsters the word monster itself derives from the Latin word monstrum meaning to demonstrate or monarch meaning to warn There's also the Latin word monstrum which Just means abnormal or supernatural but can also mean wonder or miracle generally speaking monsters are physical whether real or imagined representation of those things society as Dean leaned unknown or unnatural and most mostly those things that we fear and cannot explain physically. Speaking a monster may have some unusual characteristics. In fact one time things such as two-headed cavs or babies born with abnormalities were considered monsters so basically anything that was outside of what society claimed as quote. Normal aw was seen as monstrous of course as we know in addition to the physical characteristics. Munster's we'll do some terrible things or act out on the way beyond the standing of society being set that any one of us in this room could be considered a monster me with my blue hair and you both being super tall me with my gay so monsters there's all of you There are a ton of tons of monsters that go back in history. There were monsters that were found in cave paintings represented by animal human hybrids which unlikely cliches in real life hence monsters or at least at the conclusion that historians drew in Greek and Roman mythology monsters were perceived as a form of displeasure from the gods examples being cyclops Gorgon. Medusa Centaurs Sirens and so on. It seems that in religion like Judaism Christianity and Islam. They avoided talking about monsters aside from stories related to Satan and the power of evil in Hinduism monsters. A lot more prevalent. you see gods depicted with extra limbs or as an animal human hybrid and in native American culture. You have creatures such as the Wendy Go. Skin walkers and even sasquatch after the renaissance period with science becoming a new a fairly new thing. It really tried to attempt to explain what exactly monsters were to no avail in the gothic period we were graced. With two of the most infamous monsters Frankenstein and Dracula as well as some of the creepiest fairy tales by the brothers Grimm in psychology. Carl Jung tried to explain monsters as any central part of development might in that they were seen as the quote otherness within ourselves. I kind of discussed with this with you. Cody Day in that how I was talking how we need to balance the light with dark so I think that's the same thing it's arguing and our gang. We all have a fascination with monsters. This podcast is an example. Cody are armchair. Chair crypto zoologists. That even if these creatures don't exist it's that innate curiosity of the possibility of their existence as society changes the faces of monsters changing. We'll continue you to do so when before we used to be freed of things like trolls and elves. Today's where we fear things such as candyman or to say that once monsters collection of our society and then all the terrible things in it as well as an escape from those terrible things monsters are ever evolving and as long as we have fears and terrible things going on in our world they will. Oh not go away in my opinion. That's escapism at its best interest inc.. I have like a believer skeptic question but I guess I wanNA save it maybe. For debunk okay. But I'm afraid that I'm going to. I'm going to forget it. I'm going to ask now for both of Y'all are there any monsters or creatures that either of you actually believe in. Yes yes. That's probably what got me. Hooked on your podcast in the first place you were immediately talking about things that I have seen with my own eyes so I can only to Chris as a believer in many of the things. He's seen. Yeah I'm sitting there at work. Listen to going. Oh my God I saw that too says yes shadow people. I can't talk about that right now. Is Definitely I've had encounters encounters with shadow people. But as far as what we're talking about today. The closest is a boyfriend who thought he was a vampire. Oh Shit are you talking about that in your story. No I wasn't going to because it's complicated and messy advocates network. Deep Ball Game L.. Dated someone who thought he was a vampire sidelining. I think he was just really sexually confused. Needed to explore some things and that arena. He had seen the horror many

Twenty fifth in the course the big question we all want to know is what about the iphone more on that in a second. The list of some nearly four thousand products includes popular everyday items, like laptops, tablets, and TV's Chinese giant Lenovo had the number one market share, in personal computer shipments in two thousand eighteen over. Hewlett Packard Dell and apple so you can expect to pay more for computers in the US many, big box retailers offered Chinese brands like TCL, and high sense. TV's offered at substantial discounts. The Roku, branded TV featuring a built in streaming player from Roku is made by TCL expect to pay more for those now for apple again. The big question is, will America's bestselling consumer device, the iphone which is already pricey to begin with. Be hit with a twenty five percent tariff, the, the top of the line iphone, now starts at eleven hundred dollars. Some analysts think that apple will definitely get hit others notably gene, Munster and analyst in investor would loop ventures. Takes a minority opinion.
