The eligibility thresholds are a change from the house's initial version which kept the threshold at one hundred thousand dollars for individuals and two hundred thousand dollars for couples senate. Democrats lowered the eligibility for the stimulus checks to get all democrats onboard after resistance from some moderates in their party. The decision means that an estimated seventeen million americans who received a check under former president. Donald trump won't get one under biden.

All of these credits are fully refundable and some researchers say these measures could potentially help cut child poverty and half funding for state and local governments and public schools. The bill delivers a three hundred fifty billion dollar cash infusion to state and local governments and one hundred thirty billion dollars to elementary middle and high schools to help them reopen safely. Local budgets have faced steep declines in revenue as businesses remain shuttered during the pandemic last september. The brookings institute estimated that state and local revenues would decline by one hundred fifty five billion dollars in twenty twenty one hundred sixty seven billion dollars in twenty twenty one and one hundred forty five billion dollars in twenty twenty two.

Learjet, the private plane synonymous with the jet-set, nears end of runway
"Very well. Kick it off with an item from cnn says learjet once the goto private plane for celebrities is ending production. How their jetty courses owned by bombard. Aa they say that they will stop production later. This year bombarded said that they will concentrate on the challenger and global aircraft which are more profitable but The company's gotta interesting history David started in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by bill. Lear and i think entry into service was nineteen sixty three for the longest time. It was the ultimate status symbol. Business jet i mean it. It's been shows up in song. Like carly simon song and it was flown by the stars and it looked good. I mean it. it's kind of. It's kind of unfortunate that we're going to lose an aircraft that looked fast and and represented the elite all those years but it. It's been around a long time. Originally goes back to a company that lear formed called swiss american aircraft corporation located in in switzerland but that That didn't last too long and were were moved but i understand that the first learjet was actually adapted from a nineteen fifties swiss ground attack fighter. Aircraft the ffa p sixteen so. I wasn't aware that origin till a little bit of research today. It's a class of aircraft that most as this article points out that most people don't want it's holds five to seven And it you know anybody who wants a fast business jet once more people so there. We're talking about globals and challengers so I guess it's just it's time has come on for and just unfortunate 'cause it's always been one of my favorite aircraft up including my nineteen seventy-two matchbox sky busters earlier jet bright little yellow and white body. So they will be missed. So i'm sure they'll be flying around for a long time well. And there's another factor as well to and you're talking about the five to six place said jet market and that is that the non three hundred of which they've sold about five hundred now is lower price so i think they just got Undercut by the competition also the fbi non one hundred which is even less expensive. So that's part of the changing market Now we've talked on the show years about the restructuring of bombay and they've been selling off in a low performing units. They've had a huge amount of debt to pay down. Which is why they've been selling them off. We talked here about when they sold the series their airliner which was sold off to airbus. And this is going to be Job cuts all over the place in a separate article. I saw that. I think about three hundred people will lose their jobs in wichita allow the production is based another arrest. Seven hundred i think are being lost in either quebec or ontario of because there's some being lost in both provinces i forget which one was the most but one was seven hundred and the other was a one hundred so big impact All the way around it does really make party a instead of the cult conglomerate that it was with all kinds of different things including a railcar business very much a single business entity and we've talked in the past how feel a lot of the business jet companies. They've gotten multiple businesses Textron's a great example And so this is really gonna make them highly subject to the you know the ups and downs of the market and fortunately the markets in an upturn business jets are selling well but boy. This'll be a real challenge for them. The future i think when there's a downturn in the market bill. Lear william powell. Lear was also an interesting guy course. he's He died longtime ago in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy eight. So it's been it's been quite a while and we've mentioned before that he actually invented the eight track Which many of our Younger listeners are not gonna know what that is. Tell us what is that. Because i don't know what an eight track is. I had one of those In my truck. Back in the let's see would have been in the Early seventies but he was a self taught engineer. But you know what. I didn't realize is that he was actually a call. Your trophy winner. But not for the learjet. Do you know what he won the collier trophy for david. No i didn't know he won a collier trophy. He did for the f. five autopilot. The autopilot was for the lear jet. Not for an f five. That was a test david. You passed double checking very good man. So yeah now bombarded says that they're going to continue to to support the aircraft ecorse encouraging and really to be expected But yeah it's kind of sad to see an old name like that disappear all right we have From marketwatch archer aviation gets one billion dollar order from united airlines on the same day announces. A deal to go public Max united airlines united is getting interested in vitale aircraft.

Some tribes are getting help narrowing the digital divide
"Indian country. The proportion of households with high speed internet access has consistently lagged behind the rest of the us. There has been some work to improve things including an influx of federal funding. That's helped some tribes build their own broadband networks across the country.

Molecular Therapeutics Hopes to Reshape Gene Therapy
"So the first rail on a touch on today is from arena pharmaceuticals. The ticker symbol is a u. p. h. And they're sitting in a market cap. Now veron two two point one billion dollars and what we heard about a week ago is that they received fda approval for luke kindness for adult patients with active lupus nephritis and for those who haven't been following the company too long. They showed really really powerful phase three data. The stock shot up really well and then it's been kind of slowly selling off into you know around the thirteen fourteen dollar area and what we heard with this. Fda approval is the stock shot up to around twenty bucks and since then it's trading at around sixteen dollars now. I took a position around thirteen bucks and then sold most of it at around eighteen. And now i'm just sitting at around ten shares in anticipation of the future. And so we'll talk about that right now. But basically what the fda approval there are few details and one was that there was a black box warning but it was pretty much in line with cyclosporine. So it's not really anything to be concerned about. The other real benefit is that the patent protection is likely until the year twenty thirty seven so there were some concerns that the patent protection for arena in this drug was not gonna last that long and that could cut into the profits given the fact that they would lose exclusivity after a while so the other thing we heard is that arrhenius set the pricing and they said it at a price of three thousand nine hundred and fifty dollars for sixty capsules and then they estimate that the net revenue per patient per year is gonna sit at around sixty five thousand dollars so i did some quick math. Here to look at the prevalence of lupus and in general has around twenty to one hundred fifty cases per one hundred thousand people so in the united states that works out to around sixty six thousand two four hundred ninety thousand in the usa. And i know that's a pretty broad range but these are the These the publicly available stats. The corporate presentation of iranian says. That around forty percent of lupus patients have lupus nephritis so the actual problems in the kidneys that would benefit from this therapy so that brings us down to around twenty six thousand one hundred ninety eight thousand total addressable patients in the usa. So we have. Here's an estimated total potential revenue between one point seven billion to twelve point eight billion now again. That's a. It's a huge range. When there's an order of magnitude in there but at least there we get a sense of the kind of revenue. The company is going to be able to bring in sitting at around a two billion dollar market cap. It's definitely on the lower end. Even though this is the total addressable market and we know that arena isn't gonna be able to penetrate the whole thing. But i think the reason why the stock is of depressed is because of the bear narrative in regards to launch concerns so often with these smaller companies. Because they don't have an established salesforce they don't have necessarily those established relationships with either. Kol's or doctors space. It's difficult for companies that are small to really ramp up and deliver when it comes to the sales numbers so the bare narrative is saying that well they're going to really struggle with the launch therefore the company should only be expected to do the lower end of their expectation. Now on the both side. They're saying that well arena could be an emanate contender. And there's reasons to suggest that given that the risk is so low with this drug now. The data looks good and it's already fda approved so they could be being looked at by larger pharmaceutical companies. Who already have those established sales and marketing pipelines to just include this into their portfolio products. And start selling it so. I'm not sure what's going to happen. I'm going to relatively small position. I don't know how much i feel like diving in here. Given the the launch is going to be complicated. But i could miss out on a a merger acquisition deal. That could come as well. So that's really i think. Obviously it's very positive for the company and very positive for patients that are suffering with lupus nephritis but for me. I'm happy with my small position and just seeing what happens with the start with that. Let's move onto rhythm pharmaceuticals ticker symbol are ytm and they're sitting at a market cap of around one point three billion dollars and what they announced. It was positive data from semolina tied in additional emcee for our pathway deficient related. obesity 's so semolina tied was recently approved for hamas egas recessive mutant obese conditions related to pompey pcs k. One and leptin receptor so what that means. Is that patients that for this need to have a knockout in or a mutation in both copies of the gene whether it's policy pcs k. One or leptin receptor. Now what we weren't sure of is whether or not similan tide had an effect in hetero zayas patients and what this is is patients that have one functional copy of this gene so if their drugs sent. Milan could have an effect. In hetero zygote significantly expand the patient population that would qualify for treatment with this drug and with an expanded patient population. Obviously the revenues could be substantially higher than what we expect if it was only the home. Zygote
HBO Max activations double to 17.2 million in fourth quarter
"At and t. also reported earnings and we don't normally care about their quarterly numbers and actually don't care today what we do care about is they're streaming numbers. Hbo max went from being sort of a punchline sort of an also ran in the streaming worst to suddenly. All of their movies will be available to stream day of release at no extra cost. Maybe we need hbo. Max our lives after also did wonder woman nineteen eighty-four moves the needle for them. Early signs are pointing to. Yes apparently if you take. Hbo and hbo max subscribers and put them in one bucket. That number grew twenty percent year over year to forty one and a half million subscribers reaching number that. Hbo was hoping for two years ahead of their own forecast. Hbo max activation doubled to seventeen point two million since the end of q. Three quoting variety. The company said it invested about eight hundred million dollars in. Hbo max in the fourth quarter and more than two billion dollars for the year on the streaming service these subscriber gains in q four were undoubtedly boosted by warnermedia's in four to distribute. Hbo max on roku and amazon's fire tv on the q for call with analysts. At and t. ceo. John stinky said were media is aiming for a cue to launch of a price reduced ad supported version of. Hbo max but he didn't provide other details on the avio de product. The company plans to launch hbo. Max internationally this year. Starting with latin america in the second quarter stinky said. At and t. will host an investor event in the second. Half of q one to outline this and quote so again as i said before ad-supported. Hbo is not hbo. That's tv sorry. That's an obvious joke. But i did want to mention that little bit about the money spent invested in. Hbo max and also where the subscribers to hbo. Max are coming from because when disney plus adds a new subscriber it is completely new revenue with hbo. There's this weird situation where did eight and a half million people start paying fifteen dollars a month for. Hbo max out of the blue. What number of them were just people moving from. Hbo regular to hbo. Max like if five million people joined. Hbo max for the very first time. 'cause of wonder woman. And they're totally new subs and they stick around for a full year. Then yeah warner definitely made back the potentially one billion dollars in wonder woman nineteen eighty-four box office. They should have made if everything was normal. But if not then the math is not so good and also. That's only one movie. They have a slate of eighteen. More still coming this year. Remember that conversation. We had with peter kafka on a weekend bonus episode not to long ago. No one is sure at least not yet that the math actually works out on this whole streaming business. At least for anyone not named net flicks.
Clubhouse Raises A New Round At $1B Valuation
"I'd like to think that this news is a direct result of the fact that i spoke on stage at josh constanze weekly press clubroom on clubhouse on thursday night. Paul and the gang saw how successful that went. And we're like quick. Pull the trigger on this for sure. I'm joking of course. But in a blog post yesterday clubhouse announced a new funding round led by a sixteen z. Word on the street is that it's at a one billion dollar valuation. Which if you'll recall six months ago people were saying it was crazy that a sixteen z led a one hundred million dollar valuation also clubhouse says it will soon begin work on an android version of the app and it is actively beginning tests around paying creators or at least allowing creators to charge and earn quoting techcrunch. The plans around monetization routes for craters appear to be relatively open ended at this point with clubhouse saying it'll be launching first tests around each of the three areas it mentions tipping tickets and subscriptions over the next few months. It sounds like these could be similar to something like a patriotic built right into the platform. Tickets are a unique option. That would go well with clubhouses more formal round table discussions and could also be away. That more orgnisations could make use of the platform for hosting virtual events during a regular virtual town hall. The apps founders hosts on the platform ceo. Paul davison revealed that clubhouse now has two million weekly active users. It's also worth noting that clubhouse says it now has over one hundred and eighty investors in the company which is a lot for a series. B though many of those are likely small independent investors with very little steak and quote. I thought martin bryant had decent analysis of this in his big revolution newsletter. This morning quote. People are excited about clubhouse because it's like a grownup version of twitch clubhouse is the first opportunity for professionals to build a presence and an audience in a near zero barrier to entry live media app at its worst. This means. there's a lot of lincoln. Style fake insight and people trying to be gurus but it also means there are a lot of really interesting conversations featuring people you might not hear from on other platforms. The twitch analogy seems to fit with clubhouses monetization strategy. The plan seems to be provided a platform and money making opportunities. Then sit back and take a cut as we've seen with the stories format once something is a success in one place. You can't stop it popping up all over the place so far. The only notable clubhouse clone is twitter spaces which is still in testing but expect live audio chat to be tried in all sorts of slight variations across different apps. You already use for.

Goya In Three Boycotts
"Goya is a giant in the united states. Food industry today. The company is worth over one billion dollars and employs over four thousand people in dozens of factories throughout the country and abroad. It's also a staple in latino homes across the us. Pino is a huge part of goya's consumer base after goya foods. Ceo robert hunan away spoke in the white house rose garden last summer. Producer governor elevator be realized. She had a lot of questions about the brand receiving. All of this attention gabardine started digging into goya itself. The family behind the brand and some of the past controversies that the company has weathered through governors reporting. She discovered a common theme repeating itself over the years. Something bigger than any single news. Headline goya is more than pantry. Staples and spices to its customers. Specifically it's latino customers for many that the united latina's goya is like a badge of identity. So that's a pretty tall order for a company a gabby and welcome to the show. Hi maria so tell us what happened that you were like I need to spend some more time thinking about goya food products and that this led you down a rabbit hole so yeah before the boycott i had no idea who the union-wide family was. I grew up with goya beans but didn't know or never really thought about how. This company became a symbol of latino identity in the us. Clearly it wasn't about how much people love their beans adobo. It was something much deeper than that. Goya evoke emotions for many latinos and in researching goya. I found three separate boycotts spanning decades. Were goya's carefully crafted. Image as a symbol of latino identity was thrown into question. One in miami. One in new york and puerto rico and the other one from the summer and together. They helped not so rosy story about this powerful company. But before i jump in. It's important to understand. The history of the brand in how the unanimous family used their immigrant background to craft their business image. Okay so we know that. Goya was founded in the nineteen thirties. By on prudence your own anway and his wife catalina and don't pull. The nco was actually a merchant from spain right. He arrived in puerto rico from spain and nineteen o two then moved to the united states and started a small business in new york city importing goods from spain. That business eventually became goya foods rubber yunan way goya's currency. Eeo often tells his grandfather's story he mistakes from home and he. He had an idea that other immigrants also mistake from home done. Prudencio started importing goods like olive oil and other hand fish products to his shop on the lower east side serving the spanish emigrant community but then ends up being really Latino brand for the entire population. I mean it grows and this is their primary. Customers are latinos and latinas. So tell us the story of how don't do the answer becomes so successful in expanding this business after world war two. Us factory owners took advantage of the depression in puerto rico to outsource cheap labor from the island and in the span of just one year the puerto rican population in new york city nearly quadrupled from thirteen thousand to over fifty thousand people. I spoke with puerto rican food historian professor crews miguel ortiz quadra. About how you non capitalized on this. Migration wave to grow his business. The political and economical racial love voting Rico in the nineteen forties. These open a huge door Success of goya foods huntington bank element with Habits was historic. Make no mistake immigrant himself or not. I know that this big i migrated would throw with. Its foot my maurice food memories. I mean that's a great concept right this notion of you know eating rice and beans as a kid or or you know making fresh tamales over the holidays with your family. I mean there is this thing memories and we all have them yeah. It's this idea. That food is personal. Professor ortiz quadra often refers to this term food or palate memories. I coined the term in his book eating puerto rico and he uses this concept to describe the intimate bond with food formed by cultural and historical practices. So this idea that the food we eat reflects our values choices and culture and its central and understanding. Goya's rise so more. Puerto ricans moved into new york city and there was the experience of racism and xenophobia. That a lot of outside communities experience puerto ricans are not immigrants right because they're just moving from one part of the united states to another part of the united states but as it was in new york city that wasn't welcoming to many puerto ricans that increases the need for food to be a place where you find solace and comfort right exactly for this. Oh so important. If can't trace you back to your homeland the To the homeland and to the foot try and so forth in the diaspora done prudencio. Continue to build goya. The city's growing emigrant community from latin america. He knew that capitalizing on food memories was a powerful business strategy.

You fans of bowed many many times and so i want to dive deep. Is that all right man. Please statement somewhere new love good so the first thing i wanna do is a kind of style from the obvious and then go a little bit more so we talked about the question nutrition. It was his unit. Con- up blah blah blah. It's the stuff. That leonard on the tony robbins podcast But you didn't start out being a business builder and entrepreneur. You start out with something that might in fact seemed like the polar opposite of the pat success. Which was your lover. Phil and you went to film school. How did your family feel about you tripping the light brand tacit rather get yourself a good steady job I think that you know my mom lived in constant and still does quite. Frankly live in a constant state of panic that i was going to do nothing with my life that i would Be unhappy in some way and so she worried but very quietly so when i was a kid she was very encouraging. Wanted me to go chase my dreams and so i didn't grow up with that like pressure from my parents or anything. They wanted to see me happy. I was very passionate about film making. They could see my excitement. They wanted to see me. Pursue it So they were very encouraging about that. My dad is. I got towards graduation. Film school he sent me starting at month. Six or five hundred member exactly my senior year. It was five more months four months three more months one month at two when he was not going to be helping me financial anymore so literally the day. I graduated I had no more assistance from my family so that was actually great so from that perspective. He didn't have too many concerns Because he just believed. I would somehow figure it out. So that long story but took me through my remedial jobs phase where you know barely making ends meet but i made some I made some what ended up being quite smart decisions around managed apartment complexes and things like that really cheap rent as why was while you were in films who know right after i graduated. Put again as about weirdness right like all you went to film school you went to film school. I assuming you want to make films and managing apartments. It's a weird mix. I mean we know people go into the arts often wait tables. You managed apartments. That must've been that entrepreneurial spirit in you as well even doing that film time. it's interesting. there really wasn't and i. I am by nature. I am the world's worst entrepreneur. I don't have any real entrepreneurial Instincts in me so even the apartment managing thing was was totally an accident. It was me capitalizing. An opportunity that presented itself and that i will say i've been good in my life about winning opportunity presents itself. I take that opportunity But if that one hadn't fallen in my lap than that it's terrifying to think what the outcome would have been. So when i went to film school i thought that i would. I was showing real promise zone school. And i thought that i had natural talent for it and that shows you my mindset. I was very focused on what what comes naturally to me and so i thought it maitlis gifted filmmaker and so the first half of them school. I did very very well. And then i got selected as one of the four people to direct senior thesis film. Which is a big deal and so when it happened was like oh my god. I'm like bud shows. I'm literally one of four people chosen to direct this film. And i'm gonna make this. It's going to be amazing. i'm gonna go out. I'm gonna get a three picture. Deal from hollywood off the back of how good this film is going to be. And and my life will be. That's literally what i was thinking. And i showed up on the first day of domain with virtually no preparation and to give i wrote the script like to the minute that it was due so a couple of hours before. I jot something down which only feeds ending it gets elected which only feeds into. I'm just naturally good at this. So i roll up onset completely unprepared and i fail miserably very publicly incredibly embarrassingly and then that shakes my whole world and makes me realized that i am. I am not a talented filmmaker like that was the hard realization that i had phase at that moment.

NRDC's Dr. Vijay Limaye Discusses Measuring the Health-Related Costs of the Climate Crisis
"To the healthcare policy. Podcast i'm the host. David intra cosso with me today to discuss the climate crisis related health. Costs is dr. vj lemay climate and health scientists at the national resources. Defense council center. Dr lemay welcome to the program. Thank you dr maze by is of course posted on the podcast website on background. Twenty twenty set another global warming record this past year tight twenty sixteen as the hottest record year and strikingly warmer than twenty nineteen. For example average temperatures in some parts of the arctic last year were more than six degrees celsius higher than the twenty one thousand nine hundred eighty one to two thousand ten baseline average per no at twenty twenty seven. Us record with twenty two one billion dollar plus climate disasters. The previous record was sixteen and twenty seventeen toiling in some ninety. Five billion dollars in damages are more than double the forty one year average of forty five billion seventy events were linked to hurricanes and tropical storms concerning wildfires california suffered over ten million acres burned more than double the previous record set in twenty eighteen at four million acres adverse health effects caused by climate crisis. Events are on bounce well known for example in two thousand sixteen. The government published the impacts of climate change on human health in the us. And i recently cited lance and twenty twenty countdown on health report that concluded in part quote the world has already warned by one point. Two degrees celsius resulting in profound immediate and worsening health effects close quote nevertheless response. By thorough policymakers. Along with the health care industry remains far beyond inadequate. The best the recent congress recently concluded congress can do as produce a five hundred fifty page climate crisis report that drew no connection between the climate crisis and related effects. Imposed on medicare medicaid beneficiaries. Do likely in part to the fact. That neither med pack or mac. Pack independent gresham commissions given broad authority to address issues affecting. These programs has never addressed much less mentioned the climate crisis with me again to discuss climate crisis related. Health costs is the national resource. Defense counsels dr. vj lemay so at that As background vj. Let me begin by asking. If you can briefly describe the nrdc signed centers work shirt and. Thank you david for the invitation to speak with you and your listeners. I work at nbc. The natural resources defense council we are a profit organization working really to stay guard the earth. it's people plants animals and the natural systems on which we all rely. We combine the power of more than three million at rdc members across the country with the expertise of about seven hundred staffers that scientists like me but also lawyers policy advocates who are working together to protect clean air clean water and the natural systems on which we all depend so i work in the science center at entity see and science release the foundation of our work to protect people in the environment. We worked to understand environmental and human health problems working in interdisciplinary spaces in some of the work that we'll talk about today. In terms of connecting the dots between climate change in house is really the focus of my work. And i just have to say you know this period unprecedented on the scientific enterprise. It's more important than ever that we recognize the value that science brings to society and helping us to confront respond to some of these. Really urgent threats thank you. I appreciate that last point As we are well aware. Let me go to you recently. Published an article To your credit in health affairs Last month last month december issue was a theme issue on the climate crisis. I should say a health affairs polishes. Nineteen eighty-three had never previously addressed. Or excuse me. Nineteen one had never previously addressed this subject So again a -gratulations. Your article with your colleagues was titled estimating the cost of action and the economic benefits of addressing. The health harms of climate. Change But i wanna ask you specifically about that because you wrote in this essay quote unquote. There is currently a knowledge gap that must be addressed for more complete understanding of climate change related exposure response relationship. So explain to me what this knowledge gap is. Sure you know in your setup remarks. You mentioned the huge toll that climate and weather disasters inflicted on the united states last year. About ninety five billion dollars by the federal governments fresh estimate and well that's a staggering number as a health scientist. I'm an epidemiologist. I look at that figure and i wonder what's not included and the truth is that when our federal government is tracking the damage the climate change in reports like the billion dollar disaster list. It's actually not accounting for tremendous profound and sometimes irreversible damage to human house so there is a huge missing component. We think about the continuing and mounting costs of inaction on the climate crisis

And the guy said, sir, we've discovered over the years that no amount of manpower or money equals criminals being stupid. Yeah. Well, and the NYPD may be jumping the gun because they found that ide- they arrested the kid, and then it's according to the story and engaging the detective that eventually examined apple surveillance footage old fashioned face ID noticed that the guy they'd arrested in look anything like the guy that was making during the robbery plus turns out the kid was attending his senior prom when the Boston theft happened. So sounds like he's got an alibi. I don't know if he's got a billion dollar case against apple. Yeah. But they're they're going to be more problems like this, especially since the EU just voted to voted to move forward on new regulation. That would basically unify the entire like biometric database for law enforcement for everybody in the EU s so and considering that so basically if if one of these databases has a false match, everybody's going to have a false match on you and given that we've already demonstrated that not all face recognition systems are half as good as they are in the movie. And that if you are not white you might have a problem being matched with somebody else. Because the it was fly these systems were trained on white faces a not enough non faces. This is going to be a problem. And we're going to see more people who are not whose lives are turned upside down by mismatch. And then quite quite quite with with with absolute.

And that has never go to work right now. He actually the the the so much funny things it was it was a demonstration of the new next level autonomous modes, basically as an investor sort of pitch and part of it was saying, I think renting you're talking about that person who's talked asking about how poorly people see them. I've got a tesla. And they know that the self-driving technology is very isn't very aggressive. So they'll cut in front of me knowing that the self-driving software and asking can we make the software more aggressive. And I think he was talking about how. Well, yeah. We're we're looking at new like new driving modes, including like a mode that says basically go ahead risk. Fender bender. If you have to add like what and thinking. Okay. So well, the system say only hit cars that seem to be worth a lot less than the tesla or make sure that take look for her. His older then. Do it to a license plate checks?

Anyway. Switching your insurance rates. Go up. What are the consequences of that? When do they test that car and say, oh, you had aggressive mode on? So therefore, you're partially at fault from this something like what? Yeah. That's an interesting point apple got FCC approval yesterday for the power beats pro. Now, you're decision. Do I get air pods or power beats pro these use the H one chip the same one in the air pods? The I like the form factor a little better. They've got over the year loop. Does this sound better? I don't know Founded saying. saying. Right. The they got the beats. They got the beats. Yes, we have to wait on that though. Because I I I think that they're, you know, we need to make sure that presumably power beats pro are going to have the same quality an and sort of bass heavy sound as the other power beats or the beats S or something like that. But you know, maybe they're gonna adjust that maybe it's not gonna be. So I I think think we just. we just one hundred bucks more. I think seen at tried them and said they were they sounded better than the pods. But did have that classic beats on like the heavy bass big deal for some people. It's really important when you're making that decision that you understand head of time. What it means to have a base heavy. They're also sweat proof.

"I install on. Any new MacIntosh defy now, I have a license obviously have since like PBS five. But how do I get the app store version? What happens to to me? They're so so the world is the in in the licensing sense the world is kind of split one or the other evolutions that took place was that. The subscription model came to the map store. Right. And so we ended up what we ended up having to do. Here was what we wanted to do was to give our customers a choice because subscriptions, even though in one sense. They've been around for a long time and everybody sort of accepts the notion of paying on an ongoing basis for product or service in some parts of the audience some parts of the market. They're still a very new thing. I don't remember when it was that adobe started charging subscription fee for creative suite. It's it was very controversial. But now settle down. And yeah, it was extremely controversial at the time. And a lot of folks had to go through the five stages of subscription green. And so we're seeing a little bit of that now, but to to get back on topic. What we're doing is for our current customers. If you're not in the MAC apps store, anyone what we call the perpetual, license where you buy a license to the version you have. We're still doing that. That's outside of the MAC apps store because the rules and mechanics sort of require it inside of the MAC apps store the way we're able to make a viable business out of it is to offer a subscription. So in either case you've got thirty days to use BB at you get all the features. Everything's there after the evaluation period is over there is what we call free mode and free mode sort of fulfils a lot of needs most people. It's everything you need is is it text Wrangler. Basically, it's it's sort of text regular, plus you, and you sort of beat me to hear because one of the things the free mode. Does is it gives us the transition from tex- Wrangler. Yeah.

"It's like it's used to be for the past two three four five six years almost that the innovation that I'm seeing in pretty much every other operating system. That's being that's designed to be used for the keyboard? And attract ped-, I'm not seeing that same movement in the MAC, it's the least exciting desktop in. My office today is probably my MAC. It's the I love my MAC the most. But really, even my raspberry pi is more interesting in so many ways than the MAC desktop is. I just I I really would like to see some sign from apple that they really do care about it that I know there are people who are big fans of the of the MAC and apple I'm sure there are no other people who work very hard on it and who innovate as much as they possibly can. But I just don't see from. That's from the other side of the keynote screen, you know, in the audience looking at what? They choose to present. And what they choose to actually ship. I'm not seeing any level of corporate interest in continuing the max, I think you're I think you're spot on. I think that apple does think that the MAC is we've we are passionate is in IOS devices. However, we have a tradition in desktops. We're not gonna let that die because that's like giving away free money, but we feel that it's most useful as a platform for people to develop things for IOS on or as a alternates to cheap alternative to windows notebooks and chrome books for people who own ipads, and and I phone I just don't see them take about. I don't see them ever doing an ad. That says here is here is a MacIntosh, boom. Here is a competing windows device. Boom. Look how much better the MAC is than this other thing. I just don't see them ever taking that as a point of pride anymore. And I just don't know how that's going to feed. I don't I don't know how not making the MAC better and better and better is gonna make better consumer. Max because you start off making high performance, you know, rockets and then two or three years later, you figure out how to scale that down for actual users. They're just not developing the really really good juicy bits that we've really really need to keep the MAC of the viable thing. Rich siegel. You've been developing for them after twenty five years. You're you're amac Stoller. Do you worry about the future of the MAC at all? I see a lot of Meriden in Andy's points. I think that. I would like.

"This Clark was when you buy chicken, you should you should have to pay separately for the potatoes. You don't get the potatoes for free. It seems to me that this is a damning indictment of the jury system when it comes to high tech lawsuit. If we have to dumb it down that far we need better. Juries. Yup. Yeah. Yeah. There's no such thing as the tech jury that you have to be like well-versed in in five G modems in order to be able to sit on the jury. So that you can understand what they're talking about. I have to wonder though, if the agreements are April first, I mean, why be so blistering in your arguments, initially, if you know, you're about to settle it seemed to me these these attorneys in the courtroom did not know that a cell only. Only a very very small amount of people in all those companies new and a tiny subset of those near the full extent of the deal. No interesting. Why did they why did they delay? It. It's probably is simple. As negotiating all the thing because they can't very specific Ray apple is paying less nowhere. Nearly as less that they wanna pay, but they did get a slightly better rate. And I saw a bunch of analysis from Ben baharan and just the usual people on what this cost knows disagreement. It's like some people thought they wanted five dollars per product. But ended up closer to seven other thought they wanted six end up closer to eight. So I think we're gonna have to wait till a lot more comes out. But it's a better is it on in one sense every- absolutely everybody one here when the nice thing from just from an apple users point of view is that we'll be getting Qualcomm modems again, which is way better in many areas than Intel modems if you're just dripping and signal it won't matter to you. But if you're in any area that has any problems whatsoever. It's great news for you. And apple got a license. Apple didn't get the chips. They got the license which was part of the bickering..

"You're just gonna coffin a big wad. Oh god. No. And a special guest today. Rich Segal is here from bare bones software, the creator of BB edit. Hello, rich. Hello. Good afternoon. Everybody. It's lovely day out here in southern New England stop raining for about five minutes. And yet all the buds on all the trees have exploded. So that. Pan tilt zoom camera over your left shoulder there. What is that? It is. That's that's a fast Cam birdie Cam that I heard him I should have known focused on the bird cages that you can look around and see where they've gone if they if they move. Yes, I can do that. I can also check in on them when I'm when I'm out of the house. Nice. Make sure they're not in trouble while they're never not in trouble. But. At least temporarily behaving themselves to take on her. So later in the show talk to you about BBN, which is now I'm thrilled available on the app store. And I'm sure there's limits about what you can talk about. But I'd love to know the process of all that because it took from the time apple said it was going to happen to now quite a while. Yeah. The the announcement was made at the developer's conference last a year ago Hsun. Yeah. So yeah, we've been working on a pretty steady since then I'd say it's about as much work as went into any major upgrade of the application. So yeah, there there are certainly things that I that. I'm not at liberty to say, but I'll be happy to talk about whatever I can good. Stalwart the entire conversation that you're not at liberty to say. I don't recall. Declined to answer the question on the grounds. That means there you go plead the fifth. Let's start though in the courtroom, which something that broke the like during the show last week. And so now we've had a week to to chew it over apple and Qualcomm, buried the hatchet the day after jury was impaneled the trial had actually begun. Apple it made its opening statements. And then boom, and then very shortly thereafter, Intel said, no, by the way, we're getting out of the fudgy modem business. Incidence correlation causation. Somebody asked a question on Twitter, which was reasonable was when until make that determination after the Qualcomm settlement or before. And did it in other words, did it precipitate? The Qualcomm settlement at apple say, Mr. Intel call minister, apple say, yeah, we're not this isn't gonna work. Mr. apple said in the thing where we could still make them if we wanted to win. Well, see Qualcomm is the one you got to beat, and they are entrenched, and they have really really great technology there. And Intel was always going to have an uphill battle that and that battle was going to be helped if apple became a major buyer, and or if Qualcomm had a major defeat that allowed other lawsuits anti-trust suits, they've got against them to become stronger and stronger, and once they saw the cards on the table day decided that none of this looks very good. Let's get out while the getting's good. They have to have had some indication either is in the courtroom or something or some back channel thing that they knew this was not going to go well for apple one way or another. I think apple also the fact that they folded in one day also indicates that they knew that either late in the game earlier that this was not going to go their way. The arguments. The opening arguments were strange like they brought up Kentucky Fried Chicken or and whether you get the potatoes and the chicken, what your expectation is. And they were all sorts of really like folksy analogies. By the lawyers the lawyers. That's the apple saying oh God. This jury's. Not gonna understand. KFC was the call. I forget apple had an equally absurd analogy though, it was just on both sides. And my my feeling in all of this is that they they've known. No one's really going to win this for a long time and Qualcomm has to be careful too. Because most most regulators hate a monopoly, it's white Intel licensed licenses to AMD way Microsoft gave money to apple..
