"Eric loomis. And today we're going to talk about the recent history globalization many of you listeners. May know that. I had a book out outside on in two thousand fifteen. They was looking at the large history of of of globalization and the kind of disasters that it's bonds around the world and this is something that means a whole lot to me. And you know it's long been my contention that progressives don't really take these issues seriously enough in our politics and i still certainly very much feel that way and today We are here To talk to paul power who is assistant professor of history colorado college and he has a incredibly important brand new book out about this very issue. Noble ization without representation. Us activists in Inequality it's just out from the university of pennsylvania press and so we're gonna ask us to talk about these issues. Thanks for joining us. Fall wonderful to be here. Would you start by describing your book a little bit so nicholas edition without representation is the story of emergence of a coalition of generally liberal left groups in united states concerned with the inequalities spawned by particularly neoliberal forms of globalisation. That arose the late nineteen seventies and early one thousand nine hundred eighty s and the book examines of variety of campaigns that different mainly nonprofit advocacy groups wage. Starting in the late nineteen seventies with the main part of the book going through the battle in seattle in nineteen ninety nine to try to create what they viewed as a more democratic and fairer form of global economic integration. So go back to the nineteen seventies. Let's say We'll we'll get into in admitted that sort of the structures of some of these groups that who these people are What is your seventies. The minor system globalization has been growing pace that the very least the world war two. And you if you can summarize what is a really complicated question. What is the overall state of the goal project by say the early seventies. These people are going to start responding to. That's a great question and so as you saved this post. Nineteen forty five post world war. Two capitalist global integration project that is mainly about kind of fusing western europe and to the united states to sort of the other global north capitalist countries. Australia canada so forth. You know it's run by very mild social democrats as governance project much more about kind of cold war security than like promoting kind of a maximalist capitalist vision right. It's a it's a project that looks to have room for for example european social democracy. So that's for the rich countries for the decolonized. In at least a certain political sense trees of sub saharan africa and asia along with many latin american countries there these questions about what does integration look like in a world of all these nation states and not the big colonial empires and a lot of attention to inequalities created that are sort of the continuing effects of the structure that centuries of formal colonialism built. So that's kind of it's a very dramatic in some ways but also kind of oddly quiet setting to come into where there's not one dominant paradigm kind ruling global economic integration but several those two and then obviously sort of communist worlds. So you don't think that if we become more salient to listeners. When we explore this in some more details maybe that makes sense to to kind of do that right so your book stars. Big campaign is the nestle campaign right and so as a way of starting to make us more concrete. Talk about what nestle's dooming on a global scale on why this becomes outrageous to a sony people. Yes so it served building on the last answer moving forward. There's a long history of multinational corporations in the nineteen seventy s. There's a further growth of multinationals as her new markets are opening up is served developmental ism in countries like brazil or east station countries grinding so multinational see markets outside of like western europe at the north american and capitalist world for nestle a number of other companies among many consumer products that they are increasingly pushing are a variety of breast milk substitutes. Now the issue here was not the existence of breast milk substitutes right. There's a quite rich in intensive important set of debates about breastfeeding breast-milk substitutes. The issue here was the marketing techniques. Used by multinationals like nestle in specially More rural areas in more impoverished parts of the global south which is not hey like maybe you have trouble breastfeeding. And there's an alternative but but breastfeeding is a sign of sort of backwards nece right and underdevelopment substitutes are modernity and technology and capitalism. And it's not just that you're playing a billboard. One of the worst things nestle was doing was would hire people to essentially pretend to be professional health workers to go to like newborn clinics and just like substitutes to people who had just given birth and so the further issue with the marketing. Marketing can be a problem but the real material thing was if people start using the substitutes in conditions where they didn't have access to clean water. They didn't have access to refrigeration. Also they just did a lot of money so they were potentially watering down the substitutes that could lead to much increased risks of infant illness and death. Some doubt was the big issue that a group of different public health experts had been tried to raise since the nineteen thirties but that public interest groups that i focus on turn into a politicized organizing campaign in the mid and late nineteen seventy s before we get into the people who make the campaign. How does this nestle. Campaign. reflect the larger system of globalization that is developing in.

That's cool, most Patrick Quinn, another round of snow is coming down across the region, adding to what we already got the last couple of days. Comas Tammy Motel also went to Seattle's hilly queen and area earlier today. You see how drivers were faring mass dot crews have been working 24 7 prioritizing 1200 miles of Seattle's most crucial routes to hospitals, testing sites, vaccination sites, emergency services and shelters. And we caught up this morning with essentials workers who are walking to work. They're avoiding driving through these tricky conditions. And others who drove in. Had a tough time. Yeah, I already had a very hard here I do, Dr. I wouldn't bother they want it's not long enough into it's just not worth the hassle. But personally, I could probably handle driving in the snow. I grew up in eastern Washington, where it snows a lot more so e think I get still handle it now? Remember? Asked for those sidewalks, officials say it is your responsibility to shovel sidewalks in front of your homes and businesses to keep people safe. That's call. Most damning would toss up tired.

Any time you're out driving today, the highway of going to be icy until things start to warm up, no matter if Elaine's clear or if there's snow on it, you just gotta think of your driving on a sheet of ice and you need to allow a lot of room.

"We've tried like the premium model where people actually pay for us to right, and it seems honest and transparent and it works to a certain degree. But obviously, the majority of people don't wanna pay anything, you know, they've been trained not to pay for anything on the internet. So that doesn't work for a lot of people as well. And it's hard, you know. But I guess we all I don't know. I mean, I. We are. Why? App on on your phone. Yeah. It's pretty good of the other big ones. It's the best. I think still look at the it depends on what you're looking for obviously. I know I when I look at like the technology section in each of these apps, the Google one does have ads in there that look like stories, you know, but they usually pretty easy to spot. The apple one is the worst. Apple amazes me. How bad the alcohol it's all for every. I have no idea native content story ever. It can only be on purpose. Crazy. How is for not sending you your Christmas gifts? But that's why. I want. I never even open these. I was so perturbed you open it up, and they'll be like a candy bar phone inside thinking, I bet you there's I mean, I bet you doesn't even work. Right. Doesn't look like it has a power cord. Good. Oh, anyway, let's let's cheer up because you've got to pick of the week, by the way. This is Paul's new beat he'll be covering to do apps from now. Well, yeah, I mean, I it's if you think that's it was terrible way to hear my happen. No. But the reason I say that is because I've chosen this went before. I it's Microsoft to do is an app that is replacing another wrap that Microsoft Bod. And there's a lot of bad vibes around that still to some degree in a kind of sat still for a year or more where they didn't really update it. But I would say the last year and a half we might be coming in more time than that, even but let's say year and a half, the Microsoft has really been going gangbusters on this thing. And they this is a good example of you have a feedback loop. You listen to what people want you actually, do it. And they're doing it, you know, and it's and so if you have interest in a to do app the runs across you know, windows, the web mobile, and it's it's evolving at a really rapid rate. They've just redid the US on I think was on the Weber when this tenant remember. But it's it's a it's it's really grateful featured app, and they've done the work to integrate it on the back end with all of their task and to do type. Entry points. Whether it's an outlook, Erlich dot com or outlook on the web. Or even like sticky notes has some it will soon have some form of integration with to do. So you can do like bullet lists, and they're gonna sink across and there's all kinds of stuff going on here. So it's something to look at it. I mean, you know, people kind of investigate this stuff from time to time. This is not as sticky as like an Email application or a word processor or anything like that. But it it. It is kind of a nice area, that's ripe for experimentation. And I think actually the make yourself one is really really good something look at and it's it's everywhere. And now, ladies and gentlemen, the moment you've all been waited for the enterprise do pick of the week. The power pick of the week. My I I have to enterprise picks this week.

"We use it with pride now. Speaking of pride time to ride the rainbow with Paul thurrott and his pick of the week tip of the week. Do a tip. Yeah. So Microsoft, well, I don't know if they announced this. But the today it came out, I guess that Microsoft has built a fake news detector in Microsoft edge on multiple. Yeah. This is kind of strange, you know, especially killing edge. Edward the. Yeah. Edge mobile will continue as it is apply. Okay. Nobody really uses it. You know, which is by the way, too bad, honestly, Microsoft edge from fantastic. I use it on my phone. I like it. It's a great browser. And it has some features. You don't get an chrome in particular on mobile, like reading view and so forth. But okay, that's kind of interesting, but there's also a bit of hypocrisy here because we think about fake news. I mean, obviously it runs the gamut from Russia meddling in the election to, you know, a a blogger putting up a post that says, hey, you can save one hundred and fifty dollars in the surface go and then having like an affiliate link in the article because that's really the reason they wrote the article Microsoft publishes, those kinds of stories on its under service all the time. So the other thing is if you have Microsoft edge on your desktop on windows ten you should look at it right now, bring up the new tab page and look at all the crap that's on that thing. Because if they have some kind of standard for fake news, and they were to apply it to their own homepage. Terrible. This thing would be setting off fireworks. Like, it's unbelievably terrible is a carousel at the top that he flipped through the top stories. And and every other one of them is an ad, and he go down the page, and it's just adds that you know, that masquerade as new stories, you know, Microsoft has some work to do with say here, that's not the page NBC. It's like an MSN type thing. Yeah. So this is something I think about a lot because I've I've gone back and forth on different news aggregation apps. Right. So Microsoft has one called Microsoft news. That's not exactly the the new tab page. But I'm sure it has some of the same crap in there. Apple news is particularly bad, by the way. I think apple is is actually the worst of the lot. And that's interesting because apple promotes apple news is being cured by humans off. And yet every time BG are tech me more. Matt any site has any kind of nonsense posts that's really about them getting affiliate money up. It's in their news aggregation app. Yep. I I don't understand that. So I go back and forth. And I I I will say for as bad as Microsoft is on the desktop. If I looked at these today, again, just to kind of get a little tally, actually, Microsoft is on mobile is pretty good. They do have sponsored. Stories, but they're kind of clearly sponsored they don't aggregate along those crap posts that you see in the other guys Google in apple news in particular, really bad at that. And so I don't, you know, it's kind of goofy to me that in this era of a I, and you know, in hand curation and Apple's case that these new news aggregation apps are actually really bad at aggregating news. And it probably gets worse over time because you start telling it what you like. And then you start getting ads for stuff you like. And that's really the point of the app, isn't it? I mean when it comes down to it. So my tip such as it is because it's not much of a tip because I don't really have an answer here. But what is the best one? I will say bubble. A in my opinion action, the Microsoft one probably is the best on the desktop though. The Microsoft stuff is almost certainly the worst. It's terrible. So I I guess I don't know what kind of tip that is. But. Just to accordingly. Well, I Don because I really don't have the answer. I mean, I found it kind of interesting that they came out with this today, and they they went after a particular publication..

"And it was such a good idea in what history has shown is just that it didn't work. The reason it didn't work is because it was it was people Centric. They said none of the big brands out there. None of the big services out there. What anything people Centric, they want it to be them Centric. They don't want Facebook. As a a nameless thing that you can share to from some other thing they want you to run Facebook. And that's that was the failure windows phone. It was you know, that in the three times change Platt, you know, and and also by the way, you know, I I I don't know where I wrote this. But you know, when windows eight came out, we talked about a little something like this a couple of weeks ago, you know, instead of taking windows phone, and adding it to windows, they took the idea. Windows phone and made something completely different incompatible. And not as good in. When you look at what the may the other major platform makers are doing today, apple and Google. They're doing what Microsoft could have done in two thousand twelve they're adding their mobile platform to their desktop. They had it had it. They could have done this politics, Texas company politics. Yes. Insular stupidity. And that's just the tragedy to me, you know, someone who cares about windows. So it's ready like our people like when I think of our people like, I hope our people understand our people. You know, the the group that we are part of the tragedy that is windows. Founded absolutely is one the tragedy that Microsoft didn't integrate it with windows as windows eight so doing what they did the years that we've been set back because of that the fact that we may never literally recover from this is a tragedy. And so every time this comes up it's like it's like just being stuck in the side again. It's like, I yes, I know it's awful. Like it's off to me. This is the worst thing that's ever at Microsoft. You know? That's all. No, I'm glad you explained it because use. Can you started when we had the little Twitter like, oh, jeez. Let. Let go. I literally say that people. I am begging you to stop talking about this. And then they keep going. I I don't understand. Like, they just want us to say, okay. I understand. That's why I put the little cartoon of Charlie Brown and Lucy dislike. Dislike box. The. Yeah. So in this cartoon, it's very clear to me that Mary Jo is Lucy who is both giving psyche to Charlie Brown who has me. And by the way is the one pulling the football away when he wants to kick it. A little bit of both. No, I mostly meant like we're there to help people. Our us. As a kind of a funny. No. I know you didn't. But that's I I saw that. Now. This is funny because this is kind of this. You could see it this way to now. I just meant I think people want us to be with them as they kind of. Okay. Like, I've had so many people beats me, look, I'm weighing IOS or Android. I'm like, well, don't ask me. You already know what I'm going to tell you because I hate apple. So don't don't ask me about that? At that. All the time. That's a tough one..

"Belatedly came to understand that I was doing the wrong thing by supporting this thing that was never going to succeed, and you know, in two thousand fifteen when they made it very clear that this was happening. I you know, I tried to make sure that everyone who was paying attention. Understood what was happening correctly because there were other windows blogs. They were telling people everything was fine that these things aren't going away that they're knocked dropping support. They're gonna keep improving it, it's, you know, the it's just built as part of windows ten you don't have anything to worry about it. And that was not true. And I I take I took a great personal responsibility for this. The fact that there are peaceful people out there who are insisting that this thing is fine for them, or it does everything they need or it's better in some way than Android or IRS, which is patently untrue and has been untrue for years is troubling to me, the fact that I might be part of the reason for that kind of thinking is personally disturbing to me, and I'm just trying to correct. It. So that's what that is. That's all it is. I it. It bothers me a deeply personal level. When people are just so insistent on not. I don't the fact that they're using the thing.

You can take like whatever I am not giving this thing up, and it's like, okay. Including by the way, many, Microsoft employees. Like, we always talk about how many, Microsoft employees. There's still tons of employees windows phones. Okay. Yeah. I mean, and you it's we had this conversation on on Twitter. You had said something like, you know, like, these are our people. And and I did not though, not really, right? This is a. Not really. And that is it's it's the style. It's not like people are using modern Microsoft services, and absent, and you know, I on whatever device, they choose, you know. Van phones. I didn't know you had gone this deep in your analysis of this. I thought you were just kind of being like, oh, no. I know that I know. That's why I you said you I'm gonna I'm I'm gonna. going to break out the gong. And I'm like, you're not going to need it. It's not this isn't a rant about these people per se. It's rather the fact that I think some of them exists because of me, and I'm. No. I don't. Yeah. I mean when I said, these are people I met Elle. You know, we we've done a bunch of live shows where we say people in audience, you know, what are you guys using for phones? And how many people are using windows phone, so many people in the audience are using it. And I'm like, wow, really like both you and I were.

"Microsoft earlier today. Microsoft said stop using Cortana go to window. Yeah. Your windows. Windows. Of that sentence because it's so bizarre that was on the support page. With the windows. Ten mobile end of support. We recommend customers moved to a supported invert or division. Sorry device. Microsoft's mission statement is to empower every person at every organization on the planet to achieve more. And this mission statement compels us to support our mobile apps on those platforms and devices. So they actually use the mission statement to like backup way they were doing this, which is bizarre. Don't feel that our mission statement applies the people using our own products. So please stop using it. Yeah. I I don't think these instructions could be more explicit. And yet, here's the problem. Every time something like this comes up. I am deluged by messages from every single president still uses a windows phone feels the need to tell me that they're still using windows phone. I cannot stand this. I hate hearing from these people I feel bad for them. I think they're misguided think they're making a mistake. But that's that's actually not the central issue. I that stuff is all true, but threes in this bothers me so much is that. I really bet big on windows phone myself. I wrote books about the first ever book about windows phone. I I feel that I was part of the problem. You know, I supported this much longer than I should have and in doing. So I did not do the right thing by the people who read the stuff that. I write or watch the podcast whatever it is. And so what happens now is people come back to me. And they're like, oh, you hate when this phone or used to be this big windows phone supporter.

You know, when they say, you know, Cui Bono. They say, well, that's a term of art final phase of deployment. In other words, seem to you that it does to Microsoft before they were tricking people to install it. Now. They're just giving it to you. I think you're getting it being deployed. Yeah. Whether you like it or you're not. Checked for updates though. 'cause I'm still scared. I'm like I'm gonna let us much time. Go by honestly, I think it's fine. I it's I haven't in keeping ever. Yeah. But it's also not disruptive from you. I or you X perspective. It's it's mostly fit and finish type stuff, which I like and. You know, it's. It's been three months. Probably. Okay. You saw yesterday another cumulative cumulative update, which is a bunch of fixes one out for eighteen o nine pretty big bunch fixes. That seems like that kind of thing has only escalated, you know. And I don't I. And I don't mean that in some kind of a cynical, you know, we'll fix it later view. But the truth is every month. There are multiple updates like this. And it's this seems like there's more and more of them. Now. Before it was like mostly on pets Tuesday. And then sometimes on other other another Tuesday. But now it's like almost every Tuesday. It's like is it a day that ends, and y yeah, what are we got? Let's send something out. You know? But I I wanna ask Paul this question. So they've been let's let's switch now to nine thousand nine hundred one also night also calling it nineteen three because that's likely what it will be called when it comes out. So there have been I think three builds at least for windows server, nineteen three which is the next semi annual channel build of windows server. But when you look at the release notes for these they're such esoteric features at least to me. I mean, I'm not an IT pro. But I don't even write this up because I'm like, I don't even know what this is like yesterday. There was a new server build and the main road. I don't understand. Why why would you want to write about that? Adleman center got dark mode. Yup. Right. But like here's the feature that came in yesterday's build. Composed stacked code integrity policies for supporting multiple code integrity. Polcies like, I'm like, I can't even write that. I don't even know what that. This is this is one of those moments from so happy don't cover this stuff anymore. His might take. And this is this is a mile high a mile away. Because like I said, I don't really actively follow this to deeply..

"Are aimed toward education of Minecraft teams for education in Microsoft through sixty five education learning tools, and so on I mean, it's actually kind of a ton of stuff, but. Couple of the more innovative things here. First of all, you know, if you go back in time two years, we went to that may event where they announce surface laptop back in two thousand seventeen they also had some other education, laptops, there. And they're all terrible little beater boxes that nobody would ever want to own. And this obviously always going to be some of that in education. These things have to be spill proof and drop proof, and you know, designed to be handled all day long by kids who don't care, and they are, you know, but they're starting to get nicer as Mary Jo kind of said that they're getting some of these advanced capabilities that we know for windows on like truly decent computers. And there's there was two things related to windows. Zinc that I thought were really interesting one is Microsoft has a new smart pen for I think it's just for K through twelve but as for education Penn thicker barrel sturdier tip and it's much less expensive than surface Penn. But it's completely compatible with service, Ben, so. If you have a surface go or any other sheriffs PC, it will work fine. They also told me at the time and I've out corroborated. This are had this confirmed. I guess that it would also work with some selection of third party computers. And so when the person I spoke to ahead of the show told me this, I kinda paused the conversation, I said, I've never heard of this. What are you talking about? And what they said was that, Microsoft license? The technology behind the the the surface pen to third party PC makers in seems like this is something that would be right at the top of my head. I I this was news to me. But actually. Yeah. Well, they announced it actually couple years. And yeah, this is true. It's it's actually true. And so there are there is some selection of PC's on the world HP Dell Lenovo whatever they are where the the digitize the screen is compatible with the one in surface. And that means you get into change the pen. So I don't have a list of those computers. But if you had a Lenovo, blah, blah, blah, whatever it is in is compatible..

We'll excite Panos speaking at that isn't he he is. That's why that was the thing that put us over the top as far as straight as long as they stream it if they don't stream it we won't. But if.

It's doing processing at the edge. I think you're going to hear all that too. Because Julia white is speaking to who's the corporate VP of Asher. It was kind of a fun demo, but I I would not expect to see something like that video game where the alien insect things come out of the holes in the wall. And you know, like, the Minecraft demo was fun. But I I don't that's not what this device is about. They may throw in something like that just to make it fun in. But. Okay. I want the job.

"And you could kind of you this in the same light. I mean, if they're essentially giving up on croutons as a standalone assistant for consumers, especially well, Cortana, Kate the capabilities that you know, she was putting out to the world have to be put out to the world in the place where people are in the place as an and those places are again, Google and apple are dive, sorry, actually, Google and Amazon because. Systems in this case. It's it's it's really the same kind of brutal math. I mean, you just you have to go where the customers are. Okay. And I I had another insight from that transcript, I actually paid the ten dollars to subscribe to. To get it. Because that was the only to get it. So he also got asked something where he started talking about first line workers, you know, for me. That's like a big obsession of mine. I'm like this is where they're going. This is their next big untapped market that and they're kind of gearing everything that way, and you know, you know, Alex kitman has has continually said, you know, mobile phones aren't the Bill and all and he was kind of hinting like hololens was now I know what they're thinking on that front, and it's kinda crazy. So Sutton Adela said in response to another question, we've we've seen from some of the first line worker installations we've done at these big companies that some companies are giving them a hololens instead of a phone. I was like what? Yeah. I mean, those have to be pretty specialized use cases. So he said. I'm looking for his exact, quote is because of the productivity gains for service workers that it makes a lot of economic sense where they did not even give them a phone, but they're happy to give them a hololens. So this must be why they they keep thinking homelands is going to be what leapfrogs them into the thing that succeeds phones, there's no way that a whole ends anything succeed the phone. But now, I think we talked about this last week. There's obviously some really good vertical markets for hall ends. And it's been successful in those places. Right. And you know, when you say, the this term frontline is a front line of I I. Whereas Lynn workers. I always think of like the guy with the clipboard working at like, a clothing store or something. But of course, it's it's much more diverse than that. Right. It's the guy out on the telephone line is the guy in the factory floor. It's you know, whatever there's a bunch of these things..

"I'm losing my because they're they're they're literally kits go dropping off capabilities because either they're eight hundred being used or they have no further attention to go out with this. It's it's just part of that end of life thing that you know, they haven't really talked about. But you know, what they're focused on. I think for this is more of the back end stuff. Although ironically, I don't think this is in the show, but they just announced like a smart home update for the Cortana app for Android tonight west which is you know, like guys seriously, you gotta get the messaging straight on this. I mean, it's it's really strange. I feel like because they have been like either because they haven't known exactly what the positioning was going to be or they've been trying to hide it that it's made things way more complicated than it needed to be. I remember an interview I have with somebody on that team at ignite. And I felt like at the time when I was talking to him. He was giving me very good answers. Like, he was saying, you know, we we decided Cortana doesn't need to be this simple. You ask a simple question. And we give you one answer. And it's over we wanna make it. If you want to ask something more complicated. We're doing the the kind of the calculations behind the scene. So you could say, you know, what's what's my bosses calendar? Look like, and it would know who your boss was. And that's that's a much more advanced query. Right. So I felt like okay. That's where they're going to go with it. And but then they also kept saying, but it's still not going to go away as a digital assistant. I'm like, well, it's being moved to a different positioning. Now, you guys should just say. I look I I don't think we're gonna see these smart assistant speaker thing, the smart speaker things in offices per se, although in the form of speakers, you know, that people like companies are going to start putting speakers around. I don't think anyone wants people talking to things in the office, whatever. But obviously, it will be an it is it is and will continue to be embedded, Microsoft saw software and other services and so forth. But you know, you really can't draw nice parallel here to the mobile market. I mean, what does it mean when Microsoft gives up on mobile? Well, it means their apps have to be on the popular mobile platforms of the day..

"Ten cortina's part of windows ten you can kind of go down the rabbit hole one. But you know. This one's tough. Right. And there's actually there's another topic here later that's gonna fall into the same category. There is a growing contingent of people in the Microsoft community who care about the consumer oriented stuff, and they just watched the stuff fall off one by one by one, you know, and it's it's been a tough a decade or whatever you want to say. But you know, when you when you care about the consumer side of the equation, like, I do, you know, it's been kind of tough. I just point I'll point out that Microsoft when they gave up on mobile, literally use the phrase, you know, we missed this wave. We are not going to miss the next way. Well, I have a news five three Mike or soft. This is the next day and this being what I would call ambient computing. But it you don't include such things as talking to in this case speakers, but eventually this'll be, you know, capabilities built into all kinds of things, and, you know, the, natural language processing and all the stuff that goes along with that. I I guess the the bone. I will throw out to to people care about this stuff is that there is a version of the story where Microsoft still is very successful in space, and that is in getting Cortana and other back in services all over the place. Right, right. Sounds likely. Oh said it's it is humiliating to a degree to say, oh, you know, Cortana is now one of sixteen million. You know, Alexa, skills or Google assistant skills. Whenever whatever these things are called. Yes. I mean for sure, but you know, the pervasive use of Microsoft technology behind the scenes, even though it's not as forward leaning and something that we would see consumers is still potentially very lucrative for the company, and you know, and we'll see, you know, I think we talked last week probably about the BMW assistant, for example, that's actually based on Cortana. So you never gonna see a Cortana logo or the name Cortana here cantata in in that car, but that's still the technology. That's driving it. Right. Like, I I had a reader asked me. So oh, so that means they they're throwing in the towel on voice being the next you I note, it doesn't mean that actually it means they are still looking for ways to make this part of their own suite of solutions. You know, like you said embedded into officers sixty five apps and by by extension into Microsoft three sixty five that's still could be really powerful. Did just will not be the same as what it has been. One-sided a spreadsheet or a chart or whatever where you know, you kinda stack this stuff up like stuff I care about a one side stuff. I don't care about the other. And you know, Cortana was one of those things that was very interesting because what it was and because of the marketed addressed and now it's getting lumped back over that increasingly humongous pilot stuff that Paul not care about. And I it's just if anybody knows what? I mean, Microsoft knows who's using Cortana they do and it sounds to me. Like they've said, well, no one uses it. So it's not a I mean, I I guess I give them credit for being transparent and open about it. Although he had to be asked about it for 'em to even mention it did say something, I didn't say something. I it does sound like they're keeping alive only because they can't promise that echo and Google assistant will provide good support for Microsoft's product. So it's it's really a driver. It's it's basically a voice driver for Microsoft Windows, except I think you have to think about what is it going to become in the future? Because right. You know, right now, it's just like the other assistance. It's something you ask kind of simple questions, and it gives you a simple answer. And in fact, I don't know if you've noticed this. If anybody else who has a Harman Kardon notice is noticed this. But I feel like it's giving fewer and fewer answers lately. Like, so I don't know if that's consciously..

"Then he also was asked you know, what? So what? What's the positioning? And all and he mentioned that she's also gonna work with Google assistant. Well. It sounds like they are planning on it. Right. Cortana works with Alexa are echo right now. It's kind of the implication read that transcript, but the quotes I read about that part said that he basically said I hope we can work with Godal on this. I don't unless I've miss someone just to. Yeah. Well, I would think it's up to them unless can they make can they just make it a skill for of. Yeah. I guess they could. Yeah. They said he said if you really hitting. He said, but then he also sin Cortana needs to be the skill for anybody who's a Microsoft three sixty five subscriber which currently is not a requirement. You should be able to use it on Google assistant. So there's a couple of interesting things there. I, you know, are they going to do a deal with Google or are they just going to publish a skill? And then what about that, caveat, the Microsoft three sixty five subscriber? But. No, you go ahead. It's your show. I'm just. I mean, I it seems like they're funneling everything through Microsoft three sixty five. And there are there were direct. Well, that that him himself him saying that makes it a a new new rumor of sorts that they might do a consumer version right of Microsoft, three sixty five. So he definitely don't to that. During the conversation. If we think that Cortana is going to require Microsoft, three sixty five I you know, that's kind of that's kind of a tough one. I mean, you could make the argument obviously, China today is on Android and I o s offices on Android in Iowa's office is a lot more powerful. When you're a today in office three sixty five subscriber. Could it follow that model? Sure by yourself three sixty five comes with windows..

You talked about Cortana being decoupled from search. But that wasn't the other that wasn't the bottom line. The other shoe dropped. Did. All about that. Okay. To start the story. I'm going to give you some insider baseball because what does the show but insider baseball, right? That's why we listen xactly. So a week ago. Monday unbeknownst to Paul an eye Microsoft had invited some journalists to campus they got a private audience with sought in Adela and a number of other executives. I also believe they probably saw the next hololens under NDA just to guest in pursuing. But at that event, which Microsoft did not publish a transcript for we didn't. We didn't really know what was happening until somebody who attended the event published a transcript as part of a paid newsletter. Cool Microsoft just saying we shouldn't have to pay for transcripts of your events. Okay. I'm off my soapbox. So what happened was he Santana? Della was asked at this event by some so one of the people attending journalists and analysts. Hey, what about Microsoft being in the consumer space? You guys like serious still about it? Like what about Cortana and he gave a fairly direct answer about what's going to happen with her? And as we expected she is becoming an app not as not going to be a standalone digital assistant. But he he he also threw in a few interesting tidbits when he answered this. He he started talking about speaker's, and there's been various rumors that Microsoft was going to build its own speaker at some point. And he just quad centimeter was like, no, we're not doing that..
