Fresh update on "nike" discussed on Insight Out with Billy Samoa
"Amazon could have a hotel. I think Seth godin is his best. You know, if Nike had a hotel, we would know what would happen in that hotel. You could imagine what a Nike hotel looks like. It's the same thing with Amazon. If Amazon started a hotel tomorrow, we would probably all go. We could imagine our heads what it looks like. Like a whole foods there. And it looks amazing. So that's the key. The brand is more important. I think that played another good piece into Amazon Web Services success as well. Yeah, and the brand extends beyond one vertical that exists within this company because clearly they have their hands in so many different things. And some aren't as profitable as others. The margins just aren't there. And you think prime, yeah, I mean, made it so easy to get a package delivered to your house. And now Prime Video makes it so easy to get a movie delivered to your house. And obviously, these are just two of literally hundreds of different verticals in spaces that Amazon's in, but yet to your point, the consistent through line amongst all of these is the brand and the expectations of what you're going to get. Because you know when it's Amazon, it will be at a certain caliber that it's going to be fast. It's going to be affordable. And it's going to be Amazon. And it's going to be the known entity there is that it will always be an Amazon experience. And when it's an Amazon experience, whether that be cloud based services or shopping or entertainment, you know what you're going to get and it's you're not going to be disappointed. And if you are disappointed, they will take care of you. And so because of all those things, the brand becomes such a central component to the success of the business. And then when you operate in areas where you can have higher profit margins, and you can allow yourself to really have your fingerprint on so many different things. I don't think people even realize AWS powers almost anything and everything you could imagine. It's shocking when you look at just the reach and the scope. And so if you aren't aware, go ahead and do your own due diligence and research AWS and just see how wide and far the tentacles go. I want to double down on this culture piece. When you think about culture within the organization, clearly there's great companies like Zappos. There's southwest. There is companies that are known for building incredible culture like even a Netflix and what is it about Amazon? What are some of the things that you know aside from what you've already mentioned, having openness and other things like that?.

Something clearly demonstrated by the lights won the bronze recent foray into the mobile phone markets. His jane sway global director of mobile at like to tell us a little bit more. No no one phone. Which i have. My hand is our first smartphone that like has introduced into the world. There are three key differentiations that we have implemented number one. It is the industrial design. Number two is really the you x. Where we have simplified the user interface to make it really concentrate and focus on taking pictures and number three is really through a a software experience that we will continue. Innovate on a phone. That will deliver like us optical an image capabilities we use a single lens is because what we do imaging the software we have implemented and user is able to take images. Whether it's on street photographer war they want to take a close shot or escape. Eight performs very well. Aside from performance lakers also known for its strong design with an esthetic builds up over many years based on classical shapes strong materials and simplicity of use according to mark chipper head of design at laker. This approach continues to define the brand to this day. When you get to work for such a legendary brand look like a you never working from blank sheet of paper. You always have to reflect on the past and what's happened in the history of the product development and of course al al most conic product the like m. it's an iconic object in in in today's world. It's really has many elements that we can carry over in terms of its simplistic approach to design these very clear extreme form when you look at what the different interface elements doom before i even touch the camera and these these types of things. We can carry over onto other devices such as a smartphone. That's what we we believe. We've done quite well in this first product. When we started to work on the first concept that he was very clear to us that the device we were going to design has to be instantly recognized as a like a product through the field. The look and how it works for us. It was just really about staying to our values that we've been carrying on for decades now through the evolutionary perched design and looking for elements from design heritage of his car design designed naved work on on such a simple device like a smartphone and i guess the simplicity is probably the key if you look at the overall smartphone markets Segment today. it's all pretty much same same. And we also want to make a device that really stands out in this world but at the same time yeah once instantly recognizes that like a product as well as ensuring that the new smartphone was clearly still parts of the lika family. The design team also worked hard on ensuring that the digital user interface remained logical and uncluttered his mark. Shephard again yes. It's pretty much the same design and it's looking at how to once again. Simplify which is complexity of digital worlds and particularly. You is quite overwhelming. It's l. constant philosophy just to reduced functionality. And how you interact with with a divisive product into away. That's easy to use. You should really understand it by looking at what you press how it works and remove basically superfluous functions particularly in the camera. You know you don't actually need that many parameters to adjust to make great photos. And i think i lost smartphone world. These days is so complex relief to people who take lights funding the hand and they realized that action doesn't have to be loved that it's about celebrating the purest aspect of like is designed in the digital design as well as industrial design. Being a camera. Brown first and foremost the move into a new market is undoubtedly daunting one however according to dr andreas kaufmann chairman and majority shareholder of like a camera. It was an obvious decision to make considering the changing behavior of photographers and like his engineering expertise. Simple you know nowadays. Everybody's target bug because enron is wearing a floating around and everybody's taking pictures and the second time we decided we have to boost something there because it's the consumer camera everybody carries it around. I think it was a an when said the best camera you have is the one you have iran with you because otherwise so it was quite simple. We head to go there. I think we're on a certain way. create something which for the consumer means. That's a great beta taking pictures. And then sharing we doing digital cameras since ninety ninety six so we have the suspects years we have the optically experience. The sense expense an all that. And you know the smart you the same thing. Only with a tiny little elephants smaller sensor optics little bit tricky etc. So it can be combined quite nicely when you understand what you're doing. I think we understand this. One which is currently only available in japan was also an opportunity to bring the brown to a whole new range of customers. Outside of their traditional remits of photography his jane swagger and explaining strategy as a imaging camera company as our heritage. We live to be able to extend our experience and to the smartphone users as well as introducing our brands to these what we call a smartphone photographers. So you know.

Japanese market is because japanese consumers has the highest requirement for quality. So if we can make it in the japanese market and we believe we're going to be successful in the rest of the world and we are happy to report out. The result has been quite positive where able to exceed our expectations of reaching younger demographics. As well as more female users as a boy i looked at my father's like a like a sacred object heart was beating fast when i was allowed to use it for the first time having integrated like as long developed expertise in design and engineering. The lights one is clearly looking like a success. In japan considering this it of course begs the question when we to see it's available elsewhere in the world his undress coffman on what we can expect in the future is a very interesting market for testing these kinds of things we would offer that so what would be the next steps.

All the time what's happening while the swiss dealer is disputed this claim the a two thousand year old bust of alexander. The great was worthless. I'm not sure what they're saying is fake here. Like how were they fake. Is it the age that's faked or is it not alexander the great thumb there might you've got him purchased and alexander the mediocre if stuffed yourself up so apparently this shake has lost a five point two million over these various pieces. I think there was also one that they pay two point. Two million four. A statuette of the greek goddess of victory nike or nike depending on whether you in america or england in ancient greece. Just do it. But they haven't commented on any of the other. Greek statues amaze. Which is the greek god of leaving your parcel in. Been two doors down.

Vivek Ramaswamy on the Hypocrisy of 'Woke' Corporate America
"Very important book out woke inc inside corporate america's social justice. Scam vivek rama. Swamy is the author of his national best. He's a very successful entrepreneur. And he understands what's going on so my first question was other than cowardice. How would you explain it. I find his explanation in addition to cowardice. Effective it's a smokescreen for all the bad stuff that they do. So i'd like to develop that Theme vivek and will begin a with the example of nike. Which if it didn't begin. The current wave of anti-american hatred from the corporate america. It certainly was one of the big starters of it. What animates nike. Look i think it is a in large part the same theme with one additional nuance that i wanted to get to. The same theme is that they're using woke smoke to cover up their act business taxes. Because i'll tell you then it is a lot. Easier to verbally criticizes slavery two hundred fifty years ago than it is to reduce your reliance on slavery today and i will tell you they source their shoes from slave labor in asia to sell to fifty dollar sneakers to black kids in the inner city. Who can't afford to buy books for school. All in the name of serving black communities and don't intend to millions of dollars to black lives matter marxist organization that professes to care about black lives. What called for the decimation of nuclear family structure and i think for nike that allows them to sell more sneakers. Allow them to build a better brand with the community to whom they are selling those shoes while deflecting accountability from actually relying on not flavor two hundred fifty years ago when the united states was born but slavery today into your twenty twenty one in the present without being held to account for it and there's two dimensions on nike where they criticize the united states to no end but they do not take a peep about drew human rights atrocities in china where you have over a million weavers in concentration camps subject to forced sterilization and communist indoctrination and nike ceo. John donahoe goes earlier this summer to china and says we are a brand of china and four china. Those are his words not mine. But i also think that in some ways consumers in the united states got in in order to be what nike consumers demand is for us

I mean let's say i'm nike or gucci. You look around. And i say i sell clothes. Not making cars not operating a coal fire our plant. Why do i need to be thinking about the surgeon. You sure Thank you brian so I think it's important to note that It's humanities problem solve and fashion as one sector on that needs to be carbonized. Serve regardless of what Sector you find yourself in. We know that we have to reduce emissions vary significantly between now and twenty thirty and then on the way to twenty fifty and so Roughly reducing emissions by half by twenty thirty And and that's by twenty fifty There are a number of estimates of fashions greenhouse gas look rinse We can talk about this in a bit more detail. The data is not ideal But we do know that fashion does have a significant carbon footprint and as with other sectors much reduced that and so You know we know the effects and we. We know the predictions of where we're going if we keep on their business as usual trajectory And so fashion because of because of its impacts and also because it seeing the impacts of climate already happening in the supply chain in particular in places where the impacts of climate are being are happening We know that it's critical. Issue the sector to address. Thank you and love to get into the data question in a little bit on this more than any issue. We're talking about today.

I mean i think fundamentally this is a problem which no individual company consult when his i you know we have all sorts of invading intractable issues around infrastructure around incentives around policy. No-one acting really occurred within that system without being affected by it so all these brands have supply chains. Good three targets that are also dependent on And really what we realized.

Using Account-Based Marketing To Accelerate Growth With Product Marketing Director Brandon Redlinger
"One of the things that you and ring. Dna specialize in is accelerating revenue growth in one of the key. Ways that you focus on that is thinking about account based marketing. How do you use. Abm to accelerate your revenue growth. Yeah so little backstory there. I was early on the team. Over at engage. Oh which is navy platform. Is this five plus years ago when no one knew what accomplished marketing was. There were a few big players at the time. Probably the three big ones were engaged. Demand base and terminus all having different definitions of what. Abm was always trying to convince the market that it's something slightly different so at engage gio our definition of abm was abm really is coordinated go to market strategy that involves personalized sales and marketing efforts. Tell both land and expand deals. I've got issues with abm. Everyone's definition so don't be offended party at least ask some questions. I'll preface this was that we had role works on as a sponsor of the podcast. But they're also an abm and their take is kind of abm for everyone and we walk through some of their definitions of abm. I guess fundamentally people think of abm. And i know i do while. We've got these key accounts. They're the people that we think are going to have the most valuable relationships. We're going to create custom marketing materials for them instead of just creating a white paper for everyone. I'm creating one specific to nike or to amazon. Or whoever my being enterprise clients gonna be. Why did they get special treatment. Well hopefully if you're targeting right. They're much more likely to close. There are also going to be worth a lot more could be because they're just great logo to have on your site. But i mean in my mind. Abm really all does start with the targeting. A lot of times people think abm is like a wishlist. What are some cool accounts that we should close or just. Let's pick all of the fortune. One hundred companies. And that's completely wrong. You're telling me that every single fortune one hundred company is a good fit for you. You know many different types of companies. There are different categories and different go to market motions that they have. No targeting is all about who are the people who are most likely to do business with you

And i liked it. I thought it was a cool way for her to like up front on the front of her instagram's it'd be like there are these two groups of amazing athletes that are competing. And they're gonna wear my stuff but my one hang up with this is and this is just me personally. Speaking my own opinion if world class athlete and i are going to the olympics.

I'm not be taking any risks on any new styles materials. If i have a lucky pair. They've got to be ready. I just i just don't know how many athletes are actually going to wear these products at the games. But i gotta be wrong.

There's a reason why i'm not in it. It's too volatile for me it's up. I think it's ninety percent or whatever that number number was. It's an atrocious number. I'd rather go with five below only up thirteen percent year to date. Maybe that one's more conservative. Take your pick. Karen urban five or over. I know none of them are your style.

Marcus welcome back to the program quite looking forward to this. And this is a cool book 0 in the palm of your hand, fifty wonders reveal extraordinary universe. We're not gonna have time to go through all fifty but you were various stood enough to break it down in various categories, such as biological things human things, terrestrial things solar system things Bundy, mental things extraterrestrial things and cosmic things is there. One favorite out of all of those for you. Well, not really one of the things. Human rights in the Cape. And the reason for that. Mind boggling and. New kitchen. Thumb around electrons open.

I think the universes such a wondrous wonders thing, I mean, it's just on a starlit night, Marcus, you just look up there in awe at at the wonderment, and it's still continuing to grow, isn't it. The wonderful universe. Both. I guess. Coast university finding continuing to cry. Listen to being in the big bang about fourteen continue to expand the. Yeah. The wonders continuing. I mean, I remember. Ago when I. Oh, yeah. They the present true, the cosmos TV. Written fiction novel, contact became a film with. That's right. Yeah. Station sawn because he's strange. Yeah. Incredibly might which is amazing and anything we could possibly have invented. Right things about it. All the time in a few months. We're coming up on fifty years when we landed a man on the moon in you witness that yourself, thanks to your dad. Right. Yeah. This school when he was fifty fifty because. Grew up during the blitz bombing during the second level. Schooling broken. Some reason being astronomy. Idea. Why kind of switch me on? And then if you say h now, he caught me up very early in the morning. Pitches. On the mood even tell you about sending ship because I believe how lucky I was a child. And say I human being stuck on another world. The most significant event in the history of fish at. You know that? Credited key to at least on the TV set. I think many of us who are alive during that time period to have witnessed that will never forget it much like the. Go ahead. Few months about three. And then everything stopped and we never went back again. He predicted. I mean, remember the Santus and commentators confidently predicting that we'd be on knowledge by nineteen. I believe it. Quite surprising. We. Columbus discovered the Americas in fourteen ninety eight. Real sustained colonists. Didn't didn't arrive until sixteen hundred which is a good hundred hundred hundred fifty. Unprecedented. There is a gap between when something is discovered. And when people go back concertedly. Explain more technically a radio telescope works. Technically. It's a. On invisible of. They were predicted by James Maxwell. Nineteen sixties and they were detected. In Germany, I t sixties entira. Well, we live in. Vice which are radio telescope. The bucket a dish. That collects the radio from the universe which writing down and actually detect a hey very much tuna right between the stations. You get his static. That's.

His grows and dies down. Doc say and that has to be converted into the brightness. Oh, Cala of an artificial when you actually see for instance. At the black hole, which was revealed two weeks ago that was pretty dramatic Nike. I would see he's been put together if you if you could see right here. Visible light. That's what you'd say. Sorry. It's incredible thing. I mentioned James Maxwell. Well, he was the passing realized.

Now, we know astronomy since the second rule has looked at eating count assessment right here. Right. Because right, right. Right. Strana me was not quite right during the second world ball. But in out for Varna rice, all kinds of other gamma right kinds of invisible predicted by Maxwell eighteen sixties, we nasty universities with with different is. It's a revelation Marcus one hundred percent tells us everything we wanna know about the universe. Where are we at right now in terms of percent of knowledge of the universe? What do you think? That's a fantastic aggression. I. To now, we have to think credible theory. The stand of not the high point of three hundred fifty years. Okay. It describes the building blocks of matter. Okay. Base that he will be cool clock. An electron an had glued together by three full three fundamental fourth. And this theory explains everything that we see in the everyday. Well, I mean, it's unbelievable that we've actually got to this point. I mean, most people even fifty guy would have said it was impossible. How is? Milov twenty thirty years, we discovered two major things that don't fit one is don't Matha dot Matha. We have evidence that the visible stuff. We saved often galaxies. You and me. A major atoms. Accounts running about one six of the MetroNews. We can see that. They were invisible stuff. That's putting on the vegetable stuff to Tom. No idea what it is. I didn't even about twenty years ago. We discover dull Kennedy this is invisible older units. And it's repulsive gravity and it speeding up the expansion universe. I kinda Counci to those of the mass of the Univer seven to twenty years ago. We'd meet the major component of you. Wonderful wonderful theory that explains everything in the everytime weld tuning credible position. And almost unbelievable. How are these two major things that don't fit and they not predicted by the standard model and expand by the standard model, so potentially. There's an awful awful lot that we haven't discovered, you know, we got no idea. Question. But potentially we're only done a few percent of what we need to know. It is absolutely remarkable. And I guess you like all of us, Marcus ponders, hotted it happen. Hotted it start. And that's something. I'm not sure we'll ever get the answer. What about you? I think he might be right. We only incredible position because we can see the h at the univesity tell us to age, and we can count up. We can see the major components of the galaxies Milky Way to training of them. And none of it. Can we see the age of the universe? I'm the components. The building. But we have a pretty good idea that all into being thirteen point eight billion years ago in a fiber, the big bang and out the Kooning debris, there can shoot the picture of our universe in hurricane to be which previous generations would would have killed full. And yet. We don't actually know what the big bang laws. We don't know. What drives the big bang. We don't know what happened before the big. I don't even know if that's a meaningful question. So I think you're right. We don't know we're ever going to know the answer to this. But I would say that we have very lucky pig shop, and we have a good chance of owning some of these questions. What what was the big bang? What happened probably twenty years now? That critic so I think a point to be in history of sorts. I you say we we may actually find that. We just more questions. I mean, remember that whole king Stephen hawking his book every history time, huge bestseller ten million copies. He writes about veteran. Russell who was a philosopher giving Toko think he was in the states in folded any finishes talk about the universe. And I did. Yeah. The back put up hand, and she said that complete rubbish. Professor russell. Everybody knows the universe sits on the back of a total. What does the turtle on the back home? And she said not gonna catch me out. They have professor Russell turtles all the way down. So it could be that we've been an infinite regress, and we'll get you know, the big bang mall. What happened before? But then we need to know what happened before that before that, exactly. I mean when you talk about were we can see the edge of the universe thirteen and a half billion years ago. What's beyond that? To me means say finite end to something, right? Yeah. Well, I want to be kept here because why talking about the observable universe? The universe was bowled is very important fact. Okay. An incredible fact I mean, something that that had to be dragged kicking and screaming to they didn't like the idea the big bag. No one wants to know that universities bone. Because then the average person is gonna say we'll happen to fall. Exactly, I do that all the time all the time. Nobody wanted to believe in the big bang theory that anyone believing that we've had to because the evidence is that happened because the universities bold. We can only see the objects in the NFL whose light has had time to get to us in fifteen point eight in years. Fourteen point nine been years to get here. We can't see. Hey yet. So basically the edge of universities. What we call the horizon horizon, and the horizon C, you know, there's more of the horizon is more of the universe. I've got horizon just we have not seen it yet. Infinite amount of the university on the horizon or not say, potentially the universe. Could go on forever. We don't know. But what we see a tiny bubble over centered on near contains two trillion galaxies. But the on the horizon before beyond the membrane that galaxies. But they hasn't got here yet. So we haven't seen them. Barca's John is called 0. The palm of your hand his website. Of course, linked up at coast to coast AM dot com and his also his name and the book has really just come out. Just a few days ago, hasn't it? In america. That's absolutely, right. Yeah. So that's good. Great be on your program. So. Published always an exciting time like into stores, and I you know, I take my book. And I and I take it down the escalator stands put in front of the bookshop. I assure shouldn't I do. Nothing wrong with that nothing. You talk a little bit of what is called the grandmother advantage. What is that? What does that mean, Marcus? But one of the great I mean, I I she says she said at the beginning. I talk about cosmic things in biology things. I think the thing is winning menopause. Why do they stop being babies because the species pretty much every emphases creatures can can have spring until they die because the the stalling the idea vision is to actually get your genes into next generation? So as many as possible sense whatsoever. So women to stop, stay reproductive capability. The knife. He's a handful spacious ton of writing book three now it's five we find species have menopause humans kid. Wiles short in part rows and is another species of as well. So this is a real mystery. One of the suggestions as that. When you get older, then they're they're they're great. Chances effect is human babies take you have to call in for a long period of time. It harder to do that. And it more more like it, you might you might not be around to do that. So the only ace to that this reproduction Chateau so that grandmothers can can help bring up their children and not why they all help jeans because don't share the genes, I'm Dan get into next generation nyc spine why some species a very very very few species. So that's the grandmother phone teach. Interesting take on that we're going to take a break in just a second Marcus and come back and then off final our next hour. We'll take some phone calls with you as we talk about all things in the universe. I wanna get your take on scientists like Isaac Newton and how he was able to determine gravity when he had no instruments or anything other than his own head in his own brain. So we'll be back in. Moment is Marcus. Of course was with me back in January of a year ago. We were talking about some of his other works as well. But this one the latest book is called 0 in the palm your hand. And we will be back in a moment with him on Costa co stale the free coast zone Email newsletter is sent out six days a week. And is a great way to keep up on all things coast with.
"nike" Discussed on Inside the Spa Business | Spa
"Woods has just won his fifteenth. Major. And I think it's the fifth time. Now, he's one the US masters and to me what is interesting about. This is not the Gulf because quite frankly, I don't really follow the golf. But to me, it's interesting story in branding because Nike who have stuck with him since he went pro back in ninety six through two thousand nine when he had he's big six scandal. I think it was two thousand seventeen he had a big drink-driving issue, which became big news. They stuck with him. All the way through out saying, listen, the guys got some issues. He's working through them. We're gonna be there with him. And today this aying that the coverage of just the fun around of the masters the brand exposure that Nike just purely by the Nike Swoosh all over his uniform all over his his clothes was worth that exposure was worth in the final round alone. My Jew was within excessive twenty two million dollars. And that doesn't count. All of the clothes that they sold out of all of the Tiga branded clothes in peril base old out of in the store, and to me, the interesting story about that is that it kind of exemplifies that branding is really alone guy. It's for the long term. It's not a short term play. And for whatever reason Nike have decided, not whatever reason, I think, we know the reason Tiga clearly has identified himself as a champion of Gulf. They identified that early. They said listen, he's personally shoes way on a drawer line. We're going to separate the personally shoes from the professional Gulf because from out brand perspective. That's what we stand for. Now. We can argue all day long with that's a right or wrong moral stance. But I think the funny thing about sports that I think people tend to forgive those kind of personal failures if you like as long as you perform a professional scale and go and kill somebody infidelities and things like that. Frankly, don't seem to matter a great deal when it comes to sports, certainly from a brand value perspective. At least not in the long term. And again, that's where branding goes. I think it's also an interesting story about the brand of Tiger Woods himself. He's started off as a champion. And he got went through some issues got through those issues come out the other side, and in many ways, I think he probably wins a few more fans out of something like this as well. And again going back to that issue of what works, and what doesn't work for this particular type of Saguenay if you like the sports athletes segment of branding. If we want to look at that for whatever those reasons are, right, wrong, or indifferent. It seems that the market consumers of decided, well, we actually don't care so much. If these guys do the wrong thing, we understand the human. We understanding to make mistakes we only really care about them as professional athletes as long as do anything to dressed. So I think from a brand perspective again, the other listen to learn is that what seems to be black. White maybe in any other sigma the world any other facet of your life. Doesn't necessarily hold true when it comes to the brand if the market for your particular brand has decided and declared we'll those things not important is not suggesting that we should all go off and try the Tiger Woods apprised brandy. But I do think it's an interesting observation that the the consumers seem to have forgiven him the market seems to have forgiven him for his failures that acknowledged that. He's might mistake. He's acknowledges made a mistake. He's come up. He's got through it. And now everyone is back on the train. So again, not from a brand. Sorry, not from sporting perspective, not from a personal perspective. But I think purely from a brand perspective. It's a really interesting case study what's going on with Tiger Woods over the last few years. And where it's ended up today already.

"If his demands were not met. In other words, he was blackmailing Nike. He was trying to extort Nike. And this is this is what makes this such a fun story is that both people are on. And that's what we like. You know what I mean? Like like like this guy again. I I don't follow the I didn't I wasn't really following the stormy Daniels. I don't really I didn't know if this guy was ever natty. I don't really yet. I don't follow shit. So that part of it was an interesting tummy alter in here. Ryan. He's. You. This guy is. Yeah. Book it Worst worse. extortion out there. There's no doubt in my mind. He sucks, but. So like extorting guys like that's a big no-no. But at the same time Nikes not off the hook either. Because you know, you know, he has something and yeah that that's that's the story Tate. It's unfolding Ren front of a very is twenty million dollars. That's a lot to ask for. I think I think he could reasonably ask for probably less than maybe got away with this. And that's why Nike so at this point. The major story is he's been calling Nike insane. I got Gary Franklin this California Supreme a coach who is going to go on the record and say, I coached Andrea Aiden, and guess what he got paid. Yeah. Exactly. And so that's that's the big story that he is trying to report to the world. And I mean, obviously, well, that's that's the craziest thing in the world. Like funny about as we know. There's no tweeting to you're trying to get twenty three new got. Let's see fifty one minutes ago the corruption and Nike was rampant with Merle code and increase of this apprentice Dibos after code left for Dita's those above Dubose knew all about the payments Nike conspire to route many of the payments through a convicted felon Nike then lied to the government. If Nike was cooperating with the government for over a year relating to the scandal. They weren't parentheses. This is ally. Where the disclosures in their SEC filings question, Mark, they are none wait till the SEC begins. Our investigation starts asking. Why Nike hid this info from investors? Forty six minutes ago. Scott, Dan, did you can fit a lot in two hundred eighty characters. I was gonna say like. Tweets. It's pretty crazy that like we can now that's the news source. You know, what I mean, it could just be like, that's the way the president has done if you have a Twitter account. You can basically become news. Here's what I think. But also, it's fact, it's great. It's great for guys like you. And I have to pretend to be journalists. And then we'd just get on Twitter. We read tweets, that's that's what our show can become gas Nola, by the way, the the Adidas bag man he called him in quotes bagman. So that I mean that is the most of the other brand thing you can say the other great wrinkle about this is that he had a co conspirator. And again, I don't know who these people are because Mark Garrett goes anytime anytime, I get on Twitter, and there's like pictures of men in suits like with their heads down walking out a courtrooms. And it's like she in some head like don't give shit. It's all the same story. I you know, what I think I think I think light calico. I think I'd like to go down to Wall Street and give all those guys a piece of my mind..

"nike" Discussed on Gadget Lab Podcast
"And so it fell I think in the in the phrase that I use the pieces like it really felt like the shoe was grafted onto my foot. Like, I was stepping on the court and had that field kind of barefoot contact despite the fact that I was clad in kind of three hundred fifty dollars worth of weird synthetic fabrics parachute cord and all the other. Things that go into this shoot the tech at any weight shoe, so the shoe size nine which is kind of the the way people communicate the weight of shoe is right on the nose a pound. And so it's heavier than some is lighter than others. Lebron's tend to be a little bit heavier. Kyrie's KD's tend to be lighter. So it's kind of right down the middle. It's not going to be the lightest basketball shoe you've ever worn. But it's also going to be something that you don't really notice weight wise, why isn't Nike offering these in women's sizes. They are. I mean, WNBA players have definitely put the shoe through its paces. They haven't announced specific WNBA players who are going to wear it on the court. And again, I think that that's a reflection of the fact that this is a shoe that's catered to actual professional athletes who've WNBA players are going to have bigger feet. Then kind of civilian women just like NBA players are coming in its size fifteen through eighteen and you're right. That Nike is making nine and tens and shoes for the rest of men who don't have NBA sized fee. I don't know why they're not doing it for women's feet. Yeah. There was a report that said that the women could technically wear think the equivalent of Nate and a half if they go with the men's sizes, but. It doesn't size lower than that women. Professional w w player who has seven. You're out of luck times. People are buying these by the team, right? Young teams by them for the whole team. I think college is on the thing seems by them for the whole came. In the associate in the NBA. I actually don't know how the end WNBA does this with kind of endorsements and what people get is players, obviously players have signature models players have endorsement deals to where other people's shoes as long as there with the company, and then shoe companies will provide athletes with basically cases of shoes. Like, there's some shoes that are like the standard issue from be players like the, hyper Dunkin, hyper zoom, it's just like if you don't have a signature shoe, you're probably gonna be wearing one of those two sneakers unless you're a sneaker head, and you just wanna flex out on the court and you wear like retro Kobe's, which happens all the time. Especially in my house. There's so there's this completely other story, which is an in the Nike piece. But like there's this kind of flexible that's going on in the NBA the rules got changed. The you can wear shoes that are outside of your team's color palette. So there are certain players who just wear different pair every game. And they were shoes have been around in fifteen years. They were Jordan's. They were these crazy custom designed. So there's the sneaker culture in the NBA is a crazy thing that rivals sneaker culture in the world at large how that intersects with this particular shoe is I think players will probably be furnished with them by Nike, even if there's not a solid endorsement deal. Like, Jason Tatum orthodontic. But they invited a bunch of young up and coming stars to campus last year and had them scrimmage in the shoe. So it's not like a guarantee and nothing has been announced. But I would guess that. You're gonna see a ton of rookies and promising second year players in the NBA and the WNBA wearing these Kelsey Plum was in that NBA in the basketball scrimmage that Nike had on campus. I'm sure she's going to be wearing them on court. I'm sure we're going to see people like Aaron FOX from Sacramento Kings and Jordan bell on the warriors wearing them. And so I think Nike's idea is you see this with young players. They're comfortable if you can get their behavior changed early. Maybe they can avoid some of the damage to their feet over over years time. Yeah. And if that starts to change the culture Nike stand to have kind of an entirely different layer of infiltration into a leaguer leagues. They're already at kind of critical mass..
