"packard" Discussed on The Daily Beans

"Please welcome laura packard to the beans. Laura welcome thank you for having me. I am so excited to talk to you today. Because it was just recently third week of june or so second week of june when the supreme court had decided that in california v texas for the affordable care. Act this decision. We've all been waiting on that that they didn't have standing to sue basically because the mandate was brought down to zero dollar penalty and so they didn't have any harm or injury to speak of and so they decided seven two two which is weird because it should be unanimous that they didn't have standing to sue and so therefore we have upheld once again in the supreme court the affordable care act. It can't it doesn't so far hasn't lost. And i wanted your top line thoughts on that victory that Victory in the supreme court. Well we are three for three in cases before the supreme court which is good news but the bad news is all they have to do is win once to wreck devastation on millions of americans. you would think that people would learn from a this documented losing streak to be people's healthcare alone. But i don't think they've learned that lesson yet. So this i mean election lies lost sixty five times in the courts and they still. They're still on it so yeah exactly they. They're they're not They are only Choosing till learn the lessons they want to learn as opposed to lessons. They should be learning so this particular case may not come back because the supreme court said they there isn't standing but that does not mean that there is not an army of lawyers somewhere right now figuring out new ways to attack the affordable care act because this is a crusade for republican politicians. Yeah and despite the fact that everybody loves this you know they've been trying to get rid of social security and medicare for years as well and that's failed at every turn and hopefully the aca will stand up in those ways and yeah and if we ever raised the penalty to a dollar or more. They'll come back and say oh. We have an injury. Now we'd like to overturn the mandate and since the mandate is such a integral part to the law. We just should just throw the whole thing away. That was there actual argument this time. But i think what's more amazing. Is that recently before. This decision came out from the supreme court. We reached a record number of people who were covered under the affordable. Care act thirty. One plus million people. And i think that that is going to go up. Now we've extended the enrollment period under the first covert rescue plan by biden right to august fifteenth. Yes that was An executive order to extend it A so Open enrollment the special enrollment period runs until august fifteenth. It was originally may and then when our new. Hhs secretary came in when the first thing he did was extended to august eighteenth Thirty one million people are Enrolled and over a million have signed up in this special enrollment period alone and Those numbers thirty one million. I don't believe that includes the state exchanges so the number is probably higher than that. Okay so i misspoke. It wasn't part of the american rescue plan. It was just an executive order from hhs. Right what the american rescue plan included was More subsidies to make affordable care act plans more affordable than ever but those subsidies are only for two years so part of the biden infrastructure plans. The american families plan makes those Subsidies permanent so that's one of the reasons why we need those infrastructure plants. Yeah and it looks like now. Ernie is already writing up. Budget reconciliation after the pretty I will say surprising almost a trillion dollar republican proposal. I'd never seen republicans want to spend any money on anything but not nearly enough and it looks like they're gonna write it up for like five or six trillion dollars. Now they're like all right. Fine we gotta start high because we're going to have to come down for mansion in cinema so we might as well throw everything in there and see where we can end up with just fifty votes plus calmly that we need madam vice president now. I wanted to talk to you a little bit about something that everyone seems to be thinking. Now that the has been held up again in the supreme court which is time to improve it. Time to expand upon it next logical step in the whole reason that the affordable care act was put into place was as a stepping stone to a public option. So let's talk a little bit about that because we're seeing it in some states. Aren't we Well one thing to note is it just came out a few days ago that they are thinking of In.

Quantum Computing: Superposition or Qubit Too Far?

"So quantum computers leverage the properties of entanglement and superposition to perform computations simulations on optimizations. Much much faster than the classical computers we use today. Whoa whoa whoa will. We've gone straight in with the entanglement and superposition. Lets wind it back a little bit and to me. Get my bearings. Is tony strategy chief. Technologist at hewlett packard. Enterprise to help bring it back to basics. There were two thoughts that led to modern day computing. If you like you've got the name that everyone is familiar with. Which is alan turing. And what he trying to do was cracked the enigma code and look good encryption. And how do you break. Encryption using a machine to automate repetitive process. Trying different numbers to see which one worked in order to break that code and there was another chain run by guy von neumann at actually his train of thought was more around understanding. How ballistics worked his style. His approach was very much around making the programming. Very simple and having hardware do a lot of the work whereas cheering this massively parallel. Actually there was a huge amount of complexity in the programming. Now as it happens it was vanoy. Men's approach that leads to this concept of a cpu our take logic unit and that classic architecture that we have today cheering 's approach actually didn't really catch onto. We get to quantum computers the most powerful classical computers. Today follow on from norman's train of thoughts w. amount of compete power. We need to double the amount of processes leading to bigger and bigger supercomputers

"Thanks the perfect storm of slain. You saw big marketing budgets and elon musk's tweets blockchain has been hyped beyond belief. And it's also been made more complicated than it leads to be. More i could up angolan go. My name's ingram go. I'm senior vice. President and chief technology officer for a special intelligence at hewlett packard enterprise. So first question. What exactly is a blockchain. Let's start with a public blockchain first. Let's use an example of a analogy of a of a ring binder. You've got this notebook with many blank pages bound by a ring ring binder on page one the record number of transactions. You know. maybe. Jim pays john two bitcoins and sarah pays jim ten bitcoins and so on and so on then on the next page You have the same again. Set of transactions being written down on it and the knicks page and then expansion so on so if if you imagine each page is a block and all the pages of bound by the ring bind up being the chain. You actually have a a blockchain there right. So that's what blockchain is except for the fact that in a public blockchain this ledger or this record. Write this chain of pages. Chain of blocks is digital and is distributed to everyone publicly equally publicly with no central custodian. Why you want to use a blockchain. There are two major reasons. Why you want us a blockchain right first and foremost this when you wanna keep record of an entire sequence of transactions especially if you want to go all the way to genesis the beginning and secondly you won that record to be transparent that is you want the decentralize it by distributing copies of the same sequence records to everyone equally with no central custodian

Supercomputing: An exascale-sized challenge?

"Terms of supercomputing and high performance computing or. Hp see are one and the same but you hear hp being used more moldy days. There's a growing cool for the democratisation of supercomputers which historically has been tricky because supercomputers weren't really created just to do any old bit of computing. His jacob bama hp and engineering research scientists from hewlett packard enterprise the for supercomputers were invented to solve a very specific problem a hydrodynamics problem for simulating nuclear weapons. So during world war two there were there. Were trying to develop these nuclear weapons they had to do. What's called a numerical simulation. It's essentially a fluid dynamic simulation and so they needed to run that problem numerically through a computer and that's kind of alan turing and john. Von layman come came up with the architecture in sort of the algorithm for running numerical methods on these systems supercomputers have come a long way in a relatively short amount of time thanks to innovation in materials experimental architectures industry pioneers like seymour cray and ever increasing processing speeds but for the most part until very recently these machines have been the domain of scientists the prospects of solving some of the really hard problems that have plagued humanity forever. That's like in our sights now like we could like feasibly solve problems like cancer and all these crazy permutations on corona virus. And and any of these like really scary viruses. That are gonna come out okay listeners. So this is one of those that starts normal and gets a little complicated. I'm going to get a little bit. But i i really wants to get to the bottom of these powerful machines and i wanted to understand what makes a sweeping meters so well super so i could up bill. Manel vice president and general manager of high performance computing hewlett packard and surprise. A super computer is a lot of processors memory and a high speed interconnect time together. Supercomputing provides the the hardware infrastructure if you will to do parallel computing. Parallel computing is important. Because typically in a problem you'd wanna break up the problem across multiple processors or or multiple servers or nodes typically. What you do is break up. The data that's called data partitioning where little chunks are putting in each server on each processor and then worked on independently and then at the end. You bring it all together. This parallel computing is kind of a big deal. It's what makes sense a numeric. Who problems i deal for. Cb computers on what makes them special or different to the the santa my desk. It's mostly because they're optimized around solving scientific and engineering problems in terms of how they can partition data. How they can manipulate the data. How they can keep a certain amount of data in memory at one time. So you're not always moving data back and forth to drive or to network for example. Okay key point. Here is all about data. Starting from those initial fluid dynamics simulation these big machines have been used for all kinds of modeling from whether to weapons alongside their partners. Intel bill and his team are in the process of deploying a supercomputer could aurora one of the world's first x. scale computers at the us department of energy. What's exco well to answer that. I need to know that supercomputer speed is measured in floating point operations per second aka flops which are basically just the number of calculations it can do a second exit scale computers computer. That's able to do at least a billion billion floating point calculations per second so there's no single chip in the world. That can do that. So you've gotta bring together a lot of chips into one system that allow you to accomplish that. It's basically tend to the eighteenth. In terms of number of floating point operations.

"Walk in the show. Thank you absolutely glad to be here all right. So that was a tongue twister of a title the vp of digital customer experience at point next service which is a hewlett packard. Enterprise line of business. Tell the audience. What exactly is point next service. Absolutely so hewlett packard. Enterprise offers a variety of products and as a offerings into the marketplace. Endpoint next is actually support inservice arm of the company so everything we do is focusing geared towards enabling customers to run their it infrastructure from a support and service perspective and so with that said diving a little detail like give us a use case of win. A business would call on your lean on you to implement or develop. Were handle something for them. Absolutely so for us. We view our customers. Everything from small medium business all the way up to fortune ten companies and as these companies are making their it infrastructure decisions and then implementations as well as even the management and operating of those environments point next is able to step in and support the customers through that journey and then as a customer is if they're managing an environment themselves. We provide that level. One two three support for them should they run into any problems in their environment as well and then when it comes to the digital customer experience side of that so customer experience is used quite often in the tech industry where it's actually in the every industry right people always talk about. What is the customer experience. What's the digital customer experience. We've had clients that sell direct to consumer shoes talk about how they wanna make sure. Their website integrates nicely there skews when a customer purchases or when gets on the line for service help they all consider that part of the customer experience. Is there a specific domain in your world where you're the vp of customer experience. Where you're focused on inside of this digital services offering at a great question so as we've approached this it's really been from customer view and we've looked at how we can transform the way our customers engage with us as the business traditionally support business has been managed in one wanted two ways. It's either a face to face situation. Where a customer has a representative where there is actual face to face interaction. there's an onsite presence or there's an element that's a remote delivery side. What's your typical type call center or technical solution center. Where if a customer has a problem they call in and get that support the landscapes changing and our customers really just want that digital capability to self solve to self serve and own their own future. So what we're doing on the digital experience side is looking at our portal environment our social forums even looking into mobile applications where we can create a true environment. Our customers can operate. Add an end to end platform. That's integrated that has elements of a layered through it and at the same time. Has a seamless connected back to our telephony infrastructure so from a digital engagement perspective the costumer has the opportunity to choose when they want to engage with us a platform of choice and then as they work through driving business results were always there to support them not only digitally but also through our collective infrastructure back our global remote delivery

How Quibi crashed and burned so quickly

"So equity was always the odd duck all the new streaming services that immersive last year for just for listeners who don't stand top of the streaming rewards just give quick description of what could be is and what's happened to it. Quimby was a mobile initially mobile only than kind of transition to be mobile centric streaming video service. That made cereal like tv. In very short episodes everything was like ten minutes or last and it was very very expensive programming. They made big budget programming with really big stars. So it's pitch was that it was kind of like a curated. Youtube only with like the biggest and brightest of hollywood involved. The problem is they launched the service that was designed to be watched. Moberly on the go in those like brief much of your day where you have a spare ten minutes to watch something getting coffee. Waiting for us. Launched it at the beginning of all the lockdowns keeping people trapped in their homes so they had a mobile on the ghost service launching when nobody was mobile or on the go. That's one of the problems with but there's underlying consideration that. The premise of the service given that people already have youtube and they can watch other things on the go to netflix on the go on their mobile phones that the premise of this being a service at all was flawed from the beginning. So what's happened. At least as far as we know right now is that would be instead of trying to survive after six months is going to just shut down. We don't know exactly win but at some point the service is going to go dark and this programming is going to. I don't exactly know what's going to happen. So all this stuff that they made. Yeah i wanna get into that but it just. It's interesting just sort of looking at the background of their the foundation that this company was built on one point. Seven billion dollars in funding of meg. Whitman from hewlett packard. Lots of a-list talent But medina think looking back at this now it was was the model just fundamentally or was it just a matter. Bedtime may and launching in the middle of a pandemic. i remember maybe even before they had a name. I believe they katzenberg jeffrey katzenberg. The hollywood Whitman as you mentioned the ceo of the service they went to south by and they had this whole presentation. And i remember coming out of this presentation being like these people have no idea what they're getting into you know. They had really really ambitious goals. They talked a really big game but they're getting into something. That is really hard to break into going up against something like youtube. Which has two billion people watching it every month. So that's one way to kind of put in perspective whether or not the pandemic was the real. You know silver bullet that killed qube but also mentioned that i did. I did a poll on twitter. Asking people this exact question because they make whitman. Jeffrey kassenberg worth open letter. The apologized for disappointing. Their investors their workers their talent and they said in there. You know it we may never know what was the problem here was timing or was this a bad idea to begin with and so i had a poll on twitter quoting that portion of the letter and saying well which was it could be equals a bad idea or timing and i think eighty six percent of people could be was just a bad idea to begin with so

A Detailed Discussion With Kim Chestne ON How To Use Your Intuition y

"It's time to bring on our special guest today. Kim jesse so. Kim is the author of radical infusion of globally recognized in innovation leader and founder of intuition lab. Her work has been featured are supported by leading edge organizations such as out by southwest carnegie mellon university comcast and hewlett packard while working as a leader in the tech sector. Kim recognize that tremendous role that intuition plays in business and cultural progress and set out on a quest to learn everything there is to know about it and as of nearly two decades worth of research and practice she has developed a powerful system that anyone can tap into to access the inner wisdom in ordinary with so really really exciting and kim. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me excited to talk to you tonight. Yeah me too. It's supposed to be in our species night especially in india because it is valley the festival of lights and there's actually a transformation going on in india as well. This started many decades back because as you know india and the valleys associated with firecrackers people becoming more and more conscious as they let go off that external firecrackers and realized the light that is within them the lamp within the essence within. I think that's got me to do our own in to it absolutely. Is that inner light that intellect growing so strong. It's such a beautiful metaphor and it's a beautiful day for us to be having this conversation because it really all does tie together absolutely so. Let's start from the beginning. Where were you born and warm. Was your childhood lane. Well i was born in a little town called carlisle pennsylvania small town girl and You know i think i had. I had sort of your colonial white picket fence upbringing in one thousand nine hundred eighty s america which was really fun and if you remember the eighties and so it was really fun. Time to grow up. And i think that's it's those times it really started to develop my interest in intuition and i had a lot of intuitive experiences growing up so It all kind of stemmed from those childhood years amazing and work sort of influence. Did your family have on your intuitive or spiritual development. Yeah you know. That's a really good question because a lot of people we have this talk about intuition and when it happens to you intuition can be something that people can either accept or not accept right so when you're talking about kids and it's so important with kids because kids have such great in and they haven't really had it beaten out of the yet. It's one of these things still alive and still so connected with intuitive. Things starts to happen with children. Appearance can either encourage that or they can create fear. Be like oh my gosh. This is something to be afraid of or this is crazy. You know so it's You know working with intuition in my childhood it was challenging for me. Because i think coming from a really sort of traditional christian background. There's not a lot of room for intuition. Especially it was more of the protestant. I think in the catholic traditions. There's more of a place for the holy spirit in a lot of mistakes but in my experiences growing up in my little world there was not a place for intuition and so it was something i really had to come to terms with on my own and really facing a lot of fears and a lot of sort of judgment from the people around me and now they get it like my mom's very intuitive she inherited from her. I think it is something that we have a genetic propensity to. But i think there's just not that level of acceptance which in the east which i think is so wonderful about you know eastern cultures. Intuition is so much more integrated in daily life and acceptance right. Yeah that's that's very true. And i think like we were discussing before the india was india also is going to its own journey of realizing how abundant and whilst our own heritage is and going back to our roots realizing that wisdom about intuition and the mind and the soul and yes we're going through our journey as a country has But you know what what comes to. My mind is As i learned more about how children behave like a child always looking at his mom or her mom or her danna his dad for approval right. They're always looking at the so. It's not so much of words but it's also about how the bench reacts to. A certain situation are something that is happening on the word. Maybe that micro reaction that can make a huge difference right in terms of how the child approaches word even as an adult absolutely absolutely in those little foundational moments. They and this is talk a lot about conditioning. If you read my booker you hear me talk today. I'm probably going to use that word. A lot Because intuition is something that is really a counterbalance to this conditioning. That we all get and we get it from those very first moments with our family and with the people that we grow with you know. We're conditioned to think things. Like oh intuitions not real. Or we're conditioned thank like our imagination in our creativity isn't as important as our intellectual side so so part of really balancing these sides of our brains and really coming into our true being is stepping away from that conditioning in releasing it

Moving to texas. What are you doing to attract these companies tax breaks. Here's i i would say. This is big news unto itself but in in context of everything else. You talked about elon. Musk you talked about tesla. Remember we just had the announcement about hewlett packard enterprise. We also just had the announcement last month about the fortune. Five hundred company. Cbre living headquarters to And then Next month we have the formal opening of the charles. Schwab headquarters moved to the dallas area. And so this has turned into an absolute tidal wave for some their businesses that have had operations here and they've enjoyed the operations here. Oracle has had a thirty seven acre campus in austin texas for several years.

I'm sure he loves the lower tax rate as well as many other entrepreneurs do governor abbot. It's funny because back in. May i spoke to governor gavin newsom california and. I asked him if he was worried about elon. Musk leaving california in any way shape or form and he said that he was not worried at all should he be. Are you on the phone with other. Silicon valley companies. Courting their business. I've been on the phone. A weekly basis with ceos across the country. And it's not just california there. There are other states. And i'm sure that you guys have seen that i've been in negotiations with the nasdaq with companies that do business with the nasdaq and our trading operations. And so we're we're working across the board because the times of kobe have exposed a lot. They've exposed the ability that you really don't have to be in manhattan for example in order to be involved in the trading business or the investment business We're getting a lot of investment Leaders from the new york region new jersey region as well as from the california region. They're moving to the state of texas and that's just the investment sector the tech sector et cetera. So cost of business means a lot.

Michigan pennsylvania and wisconsin over there election results which biden won all four. And they're already certified by the way all fifty states have certified today so good news President donald trump filed a motion to intervene in the case in his personal capacity as the presidential candidate and he his filing. He insisted that no president has ever won. Ohio and florida and lost the election.

I mean, it was the original A star a second tell of Silicon Valley, leaving. What does that say? Well, I think it is a big statement. Actually, um, I think it's a big statement about, um, the increasingly difficult environment for businesses in Silicon Valley. That's in California. In general, I mean, businesses have been hemorrhaging out of California now for a couple decades and in a way Hewlett Packard Enterprises leaving is Um, the most obvious example of a long term trend. You don't notice the smaller businesses as much as you notice a huge business like HP, So I think it is a big signal. And of course, it's an end of an era. Really. Hewlett Packard began Silicon Valley in that garage. Um In Palo Alto, and now it's gone. It's a big deal. California legislators auto think long and hard about. Yeah, that's a good place. A good point. So I want to end here with a point of personal privilege. I've been impressed with you for quite some time. But never more so than when I heard about your new job as chair of the board of trustees of the Colonial Williamsburg, and that's a point of personal privilege because mild boss Justice Lewis Powell was there when they really brought it back with the Rockefellers, and he was served on that board for a long time. That is a wonderful institution. It's great that you're gonna be leading it. Well, David, thank you so much. We'll have to get you more involved. I did not realize you had a lover of and of course, we're very honored to have two Supreme Court justices serving on our board. Today We have a fantastic board of trustees and incredibly dedicated management team and group of employees. Wonderful donors will have to have you down on a visit, and that's personal. Point of privilege. Well, I'll tell you, Justice Powell used to talk with such affection about that because they came to him is the leading lawyer in Virginia to set that thing up back. And I think forties. It was a long time ago, right? Yes, He loved that, like nothing else.

So their reputation for unreliable computers wasn't exactly unearned now it didn't start out that way. The early computers were considered to be pretty reliable. They weren't exactly premium machines, but for the price they were serviceable, however as chip manufacturers, and really I guess I should just say Intel because that's what Packard Bell went with as Intel produced faster processors. packard-bell's quality began to slip Packard. Packard bell leaned hard on the Intel inside sticker that was placed on every computer because the Intel name gave a lot of cachet Packard Bell, and the general thought was that a cheap computer with an Intel processor is still better than an expensive computer with some other company's processor in like an amd processor, but that wasn't necessarily true.

So their reputation for unreliable computers wasn't exactly unearned now it didn't start out that way. The early computers were considered to be pretty reliable. They weren't exactly premium machines, but for the price they were serviceable, however as chip manufacturers, and really I guess I should just say Intel because that's what Packard Bell went with as Intel produced faster processors. packard-bell's quality began to slip Packard. Packard bell leaned hard on the Intel inside sticker that was placed on every computer because the Intel name gave a lot of cachet Packard Bell, and the general thought was that a cheap computer with an Intel processor is still better than an expensive computer with some other company's processor in like an amd processor, but that wasn't necessarily true. Is that was the perception on top? Top of that Packard Bell was using a lot of components that were you know a little odd Some of them were produced by other companies that the owners of packar-bell also just happened to own funny thing that this meant that when one of those parts failed as they frequently did. You couldn't just go and grab a replacement version off the shelf. You couldn't go. Go and get some generic power source. For example you had to order special parts, because those were the ones that would only work with those packard bell computers, and they were also typically fairly expensive. They also were not necessarily more reliable than the part. You replaced, so you might have to keep replacing the same part with the same machine if you stuck with it. That man, that packar-bell didn't get a whole lot of repeat business. People would get burned by, and then they'd say you know what I'm GonNa. Spend a little more money and go with one of the competitors. Magazines gave the computers bad reviews like I mentioned earlier there was a glut of models packard bell models on the market, and some of them were indistinguishable from each other. You could by essentially the same packard bell computer from sears, Walmart or circuit city, but each of those computers would have a different model number that indicated that it was A. A computer sold through this specific chain. Otherwise they were all identical, but it got confusing in nineteen, ninety, five, a French company Groupe bull made a deal with Packard. Bell that gave group Bull. Nearly twenty percent ownership of the company and another company and Japanese electronics company called NEC took pretty much. The rest of the ownership of Packard Bell and integrated packar-bell with an EC computers. This would turn out to be what we call a bad decision. See packar-bell was on the downward slope. The company's reputation shot. Everyone associated their computers as being cheap and unreliable. The bad reviews were killing sales and competitors were catching up in addition compaq, one of the big competitors to Packard Bell had been A. Packard Bell of building computers with recycled parts, but still selling the computers as if they were brand, new and comeback actually filed a lawsuit and stated that this was a case of unfair competition NEC would later settled this lawsuit out of court, but the damage was done in part because Packard bell executives consistently argued that using recycled parts really wasn't that big a deal. And why are you so upset? Man On top of that lawsuit? There were these new budget like low cost. P., companies that are coming out like E. Machines. Do you guys remember the machines? That also cut into Packard. Bell's game by nine, hundred, ninety eight alagem and NEC were no longer seeing eye to eye remember NEC came in essentially bought Packard Bell so alagem either left or was forced to leave Packard Bell, he would go on to become a real estate guy and he spent the last couple of decades, trying to build tall condos and Beverly Hills California not to very much success, any see kept pouring money into Packard Bell, but was on the losing side, dropping a couple of billion into the venture overall before they finally made the decision to shut down us. Entirely, and thus only sell packard bell branded machines in Europe so in two thousand. We saw Packard Bell goes away in the United States in two thousand six. NEC Sold Packard Bell to the person who used to own drum roll, please. E. Machines. Packard Bell was folded under a holding company called PB Holdings and Lenovo actually entered into talks to acquire this holdings company, and thus the Packard Bell brand, the following year in two thousand seven, but they were beaten to the punch by another company Acer so acer took on seventy five percent ownership of PB Holdings the company that owns the branded Packard Bell Acer was trying to prevent Lenovo from getting a foothold in the European market now recently here in the United States, a holding company called PBX Holdings purchased the Packard Bell Ip and. And you can actually find very cheap computers with the Packard Bell branding on them again in the United States, but these have no connection to any of the previous packard-bell's including the personal computers of the nineteen eighties nineteen nineties apart from the name now this again reminds me of Atari Atari. was accompanied that we got really big collapsed in on itself, then essentially had its parts sold off including the names, and after a while, the names were the only thing that really remained. There were no other components from the companies that actually. remained with it, it was just the brand name and you have to ask yourself. Is that really the same thing? If all, that's left. Is the name is? Does it have any meaning to it? And I guess you could argue that for marketing purposes it still does, but that is the Packard bell story, a really confusing weird one that is continuing kind of, but really it's like we keep seeing a different james bond right except every single. James Bond has absolutely no connection with any other. James Bond that's kind of how it works. Hope you guys learn. Learn something and enjoyed this episode like I said at the beginning.

"Had resigned from the board back in nineteen sixty two. He remained on as a sort of adviser for short while. Continue Davin office in the Los Angeles headquarters but he passed away in nineteen seventy. So how did Packard Bell come back as a brand in the nineteen eighties? And what connection did it have to this company? Well Inter- Benny Alagem. He was born in Israel in nineteen fifty three and he's generally pretty quiet about his personal history in fact he's also pretty quiet about his professional history and a lot of ways but he attended college in the United States studying engineering and business at the California State Polytechnic University in the nineteen seventies by the early nineteen eighties. He and two other Israeli American businessman Jason Barzilai and Alex Sandal formed a company called cal. Abc O. C. A. L. Dash ABC. Oh this was a wholesaler of computer components. Like memory chips. The early eighties offered a special opportunity for people who were in the computer business. And I've talked about this many times before. Ibm had dipped its corporate. Though in world of personal computers previously IBM and marketed almost exclusively to big businesses. But the company explored the PC market by building computers using off the shelf components. Kind of like the ones that cal adcose sold and landing a license with Microsoft for the DOS operating system. But here's the kicker IBM didn't secure an exclusive agreement with Microsoft which meant Microsoft could license that same operating system or a slight variation of it to any other computer manufacturer and since IBM was using off the shelf components rather than designing a proprietary machine built exclusively on IBM technology. This made it possible for anyone with the know how to build similar machines using a similar operating system and that would mean a customer could go out and buy a less expensive computer from some other manufacturer and still run the same software intended for the IBM machines. The first company to do this was compaq in nineteen eighty. Two other companies would follow suit and the era of the IBM clone PC began. We called them clones because they weren't made by IBM but they could run the same software that was designed for IBM computers but Alagem and his business partners saw another opportunity within this world. See these other companies that were making. Ibm PC's we're still aiming primarily at the business market and that might include some smaller businesses that otherwise would never have invested computers and not just big corporations but it was still largely a focus on productivity machines alagem and his partners saw the chance to market to the average American now to do it he would need a company that could build inexpensive computers at scale and at an efficiency that would allow him to sell PC's at a much lower cost than his competitors and he wanted a name for this company. That would give him a marketing edge. That name would be you guessed it Packard Bell now. I'm not sure if alagem was going after that name with the intent of muddying the waters. But I'm not not saying that that wasn't the case see the name Packard. Bell wasn't in frequent use by the nineteen eighties and it was easy to associate with other entities. One was bell labs the RND ARM OF AT and T. Another was Hewitt Packard. The Tech Company that had been around since nineteen thirty nine or you might even just associated with the original Packard Bell. The made radios. Tv's the marketing for the new PC. Company definitely leaned into this because their slogan was America. Grew up listening to us. It still does which you know seems to at least imply that this is the same company that was making radios and TV's back in the fifties and sixties but the truth is this new company had nothing to do with any of the other companies. But it did benefit from that association alagem purchased the rights to the Packard bell name from teledyne and the new Packard Bell Company established sometime around nineteen eighty five nineteen eighty-six another big step alagem made was to form partnerships with retailers typically to purchase a computer. You would have to go to like a hobby store or a computer store which could be pretty intimidating for the average person or you ordering direct from big business because you are placing an order for a company so in that case you like ordering tens or hundreds of computers not a single computer for a average person but Alagem saw the opportunity of reaching a broader customer base by selling computers through consumer retail stores like sears and Walmart and later on like best buy and circuit city. He started to form business relationships with these companies and secured agreements to sell Packard Bell. Pc's in their stores in return he would send Packard Bell employees to help train up the store staff on how to understand talk about an ultimately how to sell these. Pc's the new Packard. Bell would actually be a pioneer in a few fields early on so for example with early. Pc's it was pretty standard for a customer to have to install the operating system and any initial software themselves. You would get your computer home. You would have a whole bunch of disks for whatever operating system you're in you'd have to boot up into the biocine than load up the operating system. Computers didn't come with stuff preloaded on it back in those days. This was another barrier to entry for a lot of people. Not only were computers. Expensive it was intimidating to buy them and to set them up. So in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven Packard. Bell became the first. Ibm PC clone manufacturer to offer computers with a preloaded operating system and software. Bundle thus again lowering that barrier of entry the following year nineteen eighty eight. Packard Bell established a toll free support telephone line so customers could call and get help setting up or maintaining a computer in Nineteen ninety-one packar-bell would be the first company to sell computers with Intel's pentium processor as the CPU as well as the first to sell a computer with a CD ROM drive so how was a budget PC company able to get out in front of its competitors. In this way on large part it came back to those business relationships I mentioned earlier. Customers would have conversations with salespeople in stores like sears and those salespeople would report back and word would get back up the chain to Packard Bell about what customers liked what they didn't like what they were looking for company executives learned about how people wanted stuff like a machine capable of running a rom and that meant that one and he had to be a pentium and two they need to include. Cd ROMS OR TO MEET THAT DEMAND. It also helped that. Packard Bell had established an extremely nimble manufacturing process everything was really efficient and reportedly the company was even capable of assembling machines running on one type of component in the morning and then swap out there assembly line to cover a totally different set of components for a different model by lunchtime. So you could be making say a three eighty six computer in the morning and swap over to pentium by lunch. This is a big deal. Bigger companies couldn't move this fast so packard bell was hearing about customer needs early and then able to respond to them faster than their larger competitors capable of doing. The company also tried out different desktop computer designs. The General Design Philosophy was pretty industrial and utilitarian and boring around that time. Your Standard Computer was either a tower or a tabletop. Pc that took up a good amount of space. Packar-bell introduced computers with smaller form factors. And they try to get away from the Boring Beige Tower design however we have to look at some of the bad stuff too sure. The company was aggressive and producing machines for much lower costs than the competition. But that doesn't mean the machines. Were good if you do a search on packar-bell you're gonNA find a lot of articles that name the company as the worst brand of PC's in the nineteen nineties heck PC magazine in their top ten worst computers of all time listed all packard bell computers at number one not a single model they said. Packard Bell in general was the worst. Pc so what was actually going on while a big part of this had to do specifically with quality a lot of customers were displeased with their purchases having components fail. The computer just wasn't working really well. But how much is a lot? Well in nineteen ninety two Packard Bell revealed that it had a return rate of about seventeen percent now. The average in the market was closer to seven percent so this was more than double the average so nearly twenty percent or nearly one out of every five computers were being returned to Packard Bell so their reputation for unreliable. Computers wasn't exactly unearned now. It didn't start out that way. The early computers were considered to be pretty reliable. They weren't exactly premium machines but for the price they were serviceable however as chip manufacturers and really. I guess I should just say Intel. Because that's what Packard Bell went with as Intel produced faster processors Packard Bell's quality began to slip Packard. Bell leaned hard on the Intel inside sticker that was placed on every computer because the Intel name gave a lot of cachet Packard Bell and the general thought was that a cheap computer with an Intel processor is still better than an expensive computer with some other company's processor in like an amd processor but that wasn't necessarily true is that was the perception on top of that Packard Bell was using a lot of components that were you know a little odd Some of them were produced by other companies.

Because those were the ones that would only work with those packard bell computers and they were also typically fairly expensive. They also were not necessarily more reliable than the part you replaced so you might have to keep replacing the same part with the same machine if you stuck with it. That man that packar-bell didn't get a whole lot of repeat business people would get burned by and then they'd say you know what I'm gonNA spend a little more money and go with one of the competitors. Magazines gave the computers bad reviews like I mentioned earlier. There was a glut of models packard bell models on the market and some of them were indistinguishable from each other. You could buy a the same packard bell computer from Sears Walmart or circuit city but each of those computers would have a different model number that indicated that it was a computer sold through this specific chain otherwise they were all identical but it got confusing in nineteen ninety five a French company. Groupe bull made a deal with Packard Bell that gave group Bull nearly twenty percent ownership of the company and another company and Japanese electronics company called NEC took pretty much the rest of the ownership of Packard Bell and integrated packar-bell with an EC computers. This would out to be what we call. A bad decision. See Bell was on the downward slope. The company's reputation shot. Everyone associated their computers as being cheap and unreliable technology. The bad reviews were killing sales and competitors. Were catching up. In addition Compaq one of the big competitors to Packard Bell had been accusing Packard. Bell of building computers with recycled parts. But still selling the computers as if they were brand new and comeback actually filed a lawsuit and stated that. This was a case of unfair competition. Nec would later. Settled this lawsuit out of court. But the damage was done in part because Packard bell executives consistently argued that using recycled parts really. Wasn't that big a deal. And why are you so upset? Man On top of that lawsuit. There were these new budget like low cost P. C. Companies. That are coming out like E. Machines do you guys remember. Means that also cut into Packard Bell's game by nine hundred ninety eight alagem and NEC. Were no longer seeing eye to eye remember. Nec came in essentially bought Packard Bell. So alagem either left or was forced to leave Packard Bell. He would go on to become a real estate guy and he spent the last couple of decades trying to build tall condos and Beverly Hills California not to very much success. Any C- kept pouring money into Packard Bell but was on the losing side dropping a couple of billion into the venture overall before they finally made the decision to shut down. Us operations and thus only sell packard bell branded machines in Europe. So in two thousand we saw Packard Bell goes away in the United States. In two thousand six NEC sold Packard. Bell to the person who used to own drum roll please. Machines Packard. Bell was folded under a holding company called PB Holdings and Lenovo actually entered into talks to acquire this holdings company and thus the Packard Bell brand the following year in two thousand seven but they were beaten to the punch by another company. Acer. So Acer took on seventy five percent ownership of PB Holdings the company that owns the branded Packard Bell Acer was trying to prevent Lenovo from getting a foothold in the European market. Now recently here in the United States a holding company called PBX Holdings purchased the Packard Bell Ip. And you can actually find very cheap computers with the Packard Bell branding on them again in the United States. But these have no connection to any of the previous Packard Bell's including the personal computers of the nineteen eighties nineteen nineties apart from the name. Now this again reminds me of Atari. Atari was accompanied that we got really big collapsed in on itself then essentially had its parts sold off including the names and after a while. The names were the only thing that really remained. There were no other components from the companies that actually remained with it. It was just the brand name and you have to ask yourself. Is that really the same thing? If all that's left is the name is does it have any meaning to it and I guess you could argue that for marketing purposes. It still does. But that is the Packard Bell Story. A really confusing weird one that is continuing kind of but really it's like we keep seeing a different. James Bond right that every single James Bond has absolutely no connection with any other James Bond. That's kind of how it works.

"Several times, so don't worry I'm not going to go on a how television works tangent here. Packard Bell Foundation success in the television market, just as it had with the radio market, and before long, the company was selling its. Its products across the United States. This also meant finally abandoning that station is approach to radio dials. Because now, the frequencies weren't corresponding to the same radio stations. There is no guarantee that the person who is buying your radio would have access to the exact same radio stations as what you were putting on the dial, so they get rid of that by the mid nineteen fifties, things were. Were good enough with Packard Bell for them to go public with the company to go from private company to publicly traded company Erbil, would step down as president, but he would remain on the board of directors for several more years. In the meantime, the company wanted to stretch a bit more to get into some other stries, and so they created a new division focused on building out computers. Computers now this was still in the late nineteen fifties, so we're not talking about personal computers here we're talking about many computers can of the the bridge between mainframe systems and the desktop machines that we would later no and sometimes love so these were computer systems that were meant to do number crunching for stuff like research, facilities or universities, or the military or sometimes really big companies. Packard Bell hired a former US air force. Meteorologists named Max Pelewski to spearhead. The computer efforts had really begun to study computer science after working with people like von Neumann, so he was coming into this really jazzed and the first computer that Packard Bell would build would be called the PB to fifty. It was a computer built on the principles of the automatic computing, engine or ace. That's a computer system that was designed by the Great Alan, turing himself, the ace marked the first truly electronic stored program, all purpose digital computer, and that's a lot of words, so let's break it down a little bit. The all purpose part has really easy. So early on engineers built a lot of specific purpose computer systems, these were designed to handle a very narrow spectrum of tasks, and these machines had a streamline designed for that purpose now when I say streamlined I don't mean in terms of physical structure because all these machines were big and unwieldy, but rather in terms. Terms of the systems architecture, what it was actually processing information for so these specific machines were quite good at handling the problems that fit within their design, but they were incapable of running any other kind of process outside of that purpose and all purpose or general purpose computer could run any program within that computer's capabilities, not just a narrow spectrum of programs. During design was ambitious so much so that his colleagues ultimately decided they had to compromise on that vision quite a bit when building out the actual computer, otherwise, the engineering requirements were going to be too severe, so they made a much more modest machine called the pilot model ace in nineteen fifty packard-bell's pb to fifty followed in the design philosophy of as it wasn't exactly a copy, but it was built on those same basic principles, okay, what about electronic stored well one? One thing the PB to sported was Magneto, restrictive memory, and this was a type of delay line memory for computers. Now you've probably heard me talk about random access memory or Ram and if not I'm sure you've encountered at least the concept of Ram Ram is a type of storage that allows computers to process information without pulling it from a hard disk or disk drive. It's temporary type of storage meant to facilitate calculations to make stuff faster. I sometimes like in it. It too short term versus long term memory for humans, but that's not really an apples to apples comparison. It's just kind of useful to say if you have in your short term memory. That's right there and you're working with it. It's really easy. If you have to remember something that happened a long time ago. that takes more time. It's similar to that concept, but it's not a one to one analogy well. Delay Line memory is even different from that for one. One thing it's not random access delay line memory is sequential, so the data is organized in the order that it was entered as this predetermined ordered sequence. It's also totally weird when you think about in context of modern computing. Here's how it worked. In the original incarnation of delay line memory, the system would convert data into sound waves, so it actually become an acoustic form of information, and then it would send that acoustic wave, the sound waves through a medium that. Put the brakes on those sound waves. You know sound travels at different speeds through different media. Right travels through water more slowly than it travels through air for example. In the case of the early delay line memory models, they use tubes of liquid mercury. The sound waves carrying data would slow down as it would transfer into the liquid mercury, but we continue traveling until all reach the far end of the two mercury, wherein it would hit a sensor that would allow it to re electrify the signal for processing a process signal could then be sent back through the tube now you could set up such a system to store that data temporarily and the way you do it. It is you would constantly send the same signal back and forth the tube until you need it. The site make likened this to using an echo to do the same thing, so imagine that you're standing in a canyon and you need to remember something like someone just told you some numbers, and you got remember them, so you shouted out really loudly and a couple of moments later you hear the echo of your shout coming back to you, so it's like you just remembered the number. You yelled out, but. But Hey that echoes GonNa. Fade away, right? It doesn't stick around forever, and maybe you don't need the information at that exact moment, so that means after you hear the Echo, you need to shout the same thing again to continue to preserve it, and so on, and so on until you finally get to the point where you actually have to use that information, and then you can stop shouting it back out again. Well. The same thing is happening in delay line memory. The system sends data through this journey. Journey because it's going to need that data later, it doesn't need it right now, but let's say the data completes this journey. The computer still doesn't need the information well, then it just repeats the incoming message and sends that data back out on the journey again. One downside of this is that when the computer does need the information, it has to wait for the data to complete whatever leg of the journey it's on, so you can't just call up information instantaneously. There's actually a bit of a delay. Computer systems like the PB to fifty relied on this type of memory, as did more well known computers like the UNIVAC One. It's a pretty interesting way.

Packard Bell Foundation success in the television market, just as it had with the radio market, and before long, the company was selling its. Its products across the United States. This also meant finally abandoning that station is approach to radio dials. Because now, the frequencies weren't corresponding to the same radio stations. There is no guarantee that the person who is buying your radio would have access to the exact same radio stations as what you were putting on the dial, so they get rid of that by the mid nineteen fifties, things were. Were good enough with Packard Bell for them to go public with the company to go from private company to publicly traded company Erbil, would step down as president, but he would remain on the board of directors for several more years. In the meantime, the company wanted to stretch a bit more to get into some other stries, and so they created a new division focused on building out computers. Computers now this was still in the late nineteen fifties, so we're not talking about personal computers here we're talking about many computers can of the the bridge between mainframe systems and the desktop machines that we would later no and sometimes love so these were computer systems that were meant to do number crunching for stuff like research, facilities or universities, or the military or sometimes really big companies.

"Hi my name is Packard them CEO and co founder of roc see so few years ago I was having a pretty big party at my home for me was a big party had like forty people up at my place and I spent the entire day setting up getting things prep for the party in the entire evening I was serving drinks making food taking out the garbage and I was saying to buy my gas and every person I say goodbye to I start to realize I had not spent any time with them at all and then a few months later had another large party my house in the same exact thing happened and the whole damn party tasks so I start making jokes why isn't there an uber for parties where I can just get an on demand bartender or somebody to come up and clean my you know party up and do all that hard stuff so a few months later I met up with Michael founder tax poison and the two of us did a little market research and decide alright you know this seems like a viable thing maybe maybe we should try to tackle this problem so basically what rocks he is is a platform it's accessible by mobile device were it let's party host build access local qualified party staff come work their party so you just go on the app say what kind of party going to have you start browsing types of profiles like if I want a bartender you make a selection you can start to communicate with them payments communication all that's handled through the app we do reviews and ratings on workers and on host to that's pretty much what it is that's great and do you get invited to more parties now because you have this app I have been invited to some cool parties and that's an interesting little side benefit I guess of doing is also I need to sort of observe how the product is worth he'll also sometimes I like a really fun job Pat was here a few months ago a gas in yeah I do want to say like a couple years ago we had a party and I had to book everything like three months in advance how far in advance you have to do it you can book it as far in advance as you want but if you had a party in an hour in theory you could book that an hour into somebody wants to work at the close enough by you could get them sounds like me why is that because you forget you're having the party or you just don't get to it I'm just not a good planner and this is why don't you parties because I I'm not really into the whole cleaning Fang hi party party clean up part of the cooking things like this would be perfect because I would have to do any of that we we don't provide the food but we do have one of the worker types that we have on our prep cooks right you could actually hire people to come in and do that to help me get everything organized right yeah and a very cool tell us about your most recent development with your company Paris Hilton joined us back in August after a few months of discussions with her so she's actually part of our team if you go on rocks yep dot com because you're up there on our site she's global promotions director for a company so she's helping us with all the social media influencer campaigns and big promotions and things like that you'll be probably see more of her and rocks in the next two months that's how you got her on your team tell us from like the very beginning what happened we watched in January and for every party that was put on a platform I or dax or one of our team members would call up the people who put the party on there and also call the workers because we're trying to get feedback when I make sure everything was working well you know there were any Kinks get advice from them so February twelfth of two thousand nineteen I noticed that there is a really large event that got posted on our platform and it was for starting at like ten o'clock at night and ending at six AM and was for like five or six workers this is one usual right this is gonna be a crazy party so I called up the number on the you know in the account for that post and a guy picked up in his name is Glen and I was like Hey you know this is Pat from Roxy blah blah blah how do you like the app like it's great love this product is wonderful and I just was like I'm just going to get your feedback to make sure everything's okay that you put in the right time he's like no I know I did it sets for celebrity birthday party I'm helping out with and that's it so I called up all the workers were signed up for that job and I said please do not be late make sure you're on time I'm going to pay you an extra twenty five dollars if you just show up five minutes early then when you're supposed to be there and sure enough every one of them showed up the next two days after the event happened I called up every single worker just to find out how did it go tell me what was wrong with the product book we do better and as I'm listening to one of them tell me they civil perasaan was this is who the party was for as it that's pretty interesting and I think it makes this thing particularly interesting is that a year before our adviser said to dax night that you know who you need you need someone like a Paris Hilton help you to promote in in you know the Hamptons or in LA or somewhere like that this was just a casual comment so fast for two now when I'm talking to them on the phone I said okay how to go and I heard it was Paris Hilton so I then got contacted by her team a little while later and she was interested in talking to us because you love the product so much and she's a big party planner she's a big party promoter and so I wound up going out there to go talk to her and find out really what our interest level was if this was just you know kind of a show and it certainly wasn't and she was extremely serious very engaged I am really interested what we're doing and so it took us a little bit of time but August we got our onboard officially signed around so that's where we are so this Paris throw a lot of parties Harris throws crazy big parties and she throws them often in fact the first meeting I went to it was on a Friday and I just went out there just to meet with her during the day and she said well you're you're going to come to my party right tonight I was like I am I guess I am not what kind of party a party and it was my first introduction to the kind of parties that she throws one time you need a plus one you know I wanted to know what is the inspiration for the name right down the block is the rock the hotel and we got the name from being at the Roxy tax and I were meeting there for probably six months often on trying to come up with will market research and we're also just doing some product planning and during that time we're also trying to figure out what the name would be for the platform and my wife made the suggestion that should be a woman's name something that's playful fun maybe sexy something engaging and we struggled for so long with that name and we finally like we're giving up I I don't care about the name right now we're just gonna call X. and I don't know at some point dax and I were at the Roxy bar probably having a drink or something like that any any great ideas okay on the shoulder and he goes we're standing in the name what do you mean you guys while rock see that's the name yeah I went I love it it's great is the perfect name a lot of great ideas come out of the rocks the as a matter of fact the idea came out of the rock really great I you have a drink it was called me up and said Hey I have a great idea for you guys I just moved I heart let's do you want to come in and talk about it so she and I sat down with a bottle of champagne at the Roxy and can I have a better and better.
