The Black Shark 4 Smartphone Rises From The Deep

"All right so this article comes to us from the android police. Apparently gaming phones are getting more and more popular. I wonder why could it be. People want more power in a smaller screen. The post who. I don't know if powerful computer the complete of video games honor or like a consul. It's it seems to me like it's smartphones. Time to rise and while zombie is keeping up the pace with black shark series. The latest iteration the black sharp for an for pro have popped up in a chinese you can pre-order one. Today with the phones set release to china on thursday. The twenty fifth and international release date has not been set yet. But what what are you looking at stat. Wise here while the black shark. Four pro uses a snapdragon eight processor. Qualcomm's biggest and bad available. It's paired to either eight gigs or twelve. Gigs of ultraviolet fast. Lpddr five ram with two hundred fifty six gigs of storage both models. But those aren't exactly hard to find these days. The more obvious give way that this is giving phone are the dedicated mechanical shoulder buttons on the side flight. The locks away to them pop up like two shoulder buttons on a black shark three they can be bound to touch areas on screen for integration with really more or less any game but if you want the mechanical shoulder buttons you now have that option. The four pro is six point. Six seven inch a. m. o. l. e. the ten eighty p screen with a maximum refresh rate of one. Hundred forty four hertz. Beating most phones it also has to zones of pressure sensitivity as a nema pressure applied. Not just touch sensitive allowing for further integration into games that can support it. It's battery as a forty five hundred m h typical for phone this size but supports fast charging at a completely bonkers. Honored twani watts with a charger included in the box. Family says it can charge ninety percent of the battery in a little more than half an hour. It looks like the video that goes along with two well in terms of cameras on the pro. They have a sixty four megapixel main shooter. Eight megapixel ultra wide five megapixel macro with a twenty megapixel centered. Front camera terms of style to flat. Black version actually looks fairly down. Nice to notice the side buttons. Led triangle logo on the back stays on lit. You'd have a hard time telling its gaming phone. Of course that goes out the window to get the so empty version of its auto translated by the way unsure of the official name. It's layered semi transparent glass shifts around as you look at it and much more flashy but not unappealing way. The phones a chunky and nine point nine meters. But that's enough to include a headphone jack in sight mounted fingerprint reader. The dual sim. Radio works with five g for absolutely intense sessions. You can't quick bond the sold separately cooling module at cedar black shark four pro a starts at four thousand. I'm trying to remember the exact It can't be the chinese currency that they have. But if you're talking about us dollars be black shark for pro is at six hundred fifteen dollars and six hundred ninety dollars respectively as the non. It's it's kind of slightly scaled down version Looks pretty interesting In terms of the i it drops one of the cameras. It keeps the shoulder buttons most of the rest of the hardware and it's slightly cheaper. Probably not a five hundred dollar range for a gaming smartphone. That's unheard of clean. We're sitting here looking at foods. The latest and greatest thousand plus in in north china pop out gaming smartphones that are packed full of hardware intact for like seven hundred between five and seven hundred eighty s manageable. It off but yeah. If you're looking for gaming phone well you might just have to wait for this to be released internationally. But if you're in china Details in terms of prices and such and selections and preorders are available in a show notes for today's episode. So looks pretty cool all right. Moving on to an article begat from techcrunch facebook's clubhouse rival looks a lot like clubhouse right now in and because facebook is a clubhouse rival reported on net like all the way back in february in new york times. Didn't a bunch of other people did but what that product look like or how it will work have been questioned that have remained unanswered however new screenshots of a facebook audio product still under development shows what appears to be a live audio broadcasts experience. It's more of an extension of facebook's existing messenger rooms rather than a standalone app experience. Facebook confirmed with techcrunch. The images are indeed examples of the companies exploratory efforts because they don't represent alive product at this time but the gamut we all know the company said also that detailing what product look like based on these images would be inaccurate ob tech crush said screw. Were pushing him anyway. But keep in mind. It is in development features. That are very different in anything and everything could still change drastically between now and then but images at least help. Face their demonstrate. How facebook is thinking about live audio. Where such a social experience. Good fit within facebook's existing and that's worth considering considering that i don't think facebook wants to make another app i think they just want everybody to be on one app and use that so we do have some pictures that go along with it. Looks like they have like button. It says choose the room type where it's like live audio broadcasts in audio only room to listeners audio where you can start a private audio room with friends. A video button reconstructive private video room with friends in an you can also add people in but it looks very much like Like clubhouse that. I'm still trying to get used to somebody interfaces of the room so it's it's kind of interesting Speak are shown to tap the room. What a represented with a larger circular profile picks room listeners appear below is also a followed by speaker section leads the audience section again much like clubhouse but obviously subject to change the way it's being developed that would allow for rooms that anyone on facebook join Rooms could be accessible from facebook itself. Meaning you would not have to switch to messenger to join the room. When not expanded to full screen room with displays title number speakers in total listeners. He can get an idea of the rooms popularity. So Yeah lebron even looking at it tested it out. Don't secret facebook. Ceo mark zuckerberg is both on audio. Of course in fact he's already appeared on clubhouse. A couple of times recently spoke about the product.

Oppo find x3 pro review

"Embargo for the for the find x three pro lifted this morning this is okposo latest and greatest opo and oneplus share parent company. Bb case so there will be some overlap in what we talk about We don't know a lot about the oneplus series but what we know about the finance three pro. I think will dovetail nicely into the rumors for the oneplus nine. So let's start with you. Miriam you have this phone. It's oboe is not a brand name and north america yet. But i think it's becoming a bit more ubiquitous in europe where alex is you've reviewed one pl- or oboe phones for years now and you're you're among the first people to bring kind of these. Chinese brand opal vivo. Walkway into the purview of us audiences. So when you take a look at the x three pro. What's your first impression. Is this a phone that was made for a worldwide audience or is this more a phone that was made for a chinese audience. That is them being sort of adapted for the west. I think we're at the point now. Where i wanna odd xiaomi to your last i think yeah okay. I think we're the point. Where really these global launches of these phones the me levin from shami recently of course the oppo phoenix three pro and financial three series our global phones through and through. And i think that that's very exciting to me. Now we get the short end of the stick in north america. You're in canada. I'm in the us. Because we still don't get full five g support for our weird bands. And that means that i hesitate to recommend this phone to folks live on the north american continent of this time. I haven't tested the oppo yet on five g. here i'm hoping that as qualcomm becomes more omnipresent not that it isn't already but i mean in terms of its Band support for five g. sub. Six that we get eventually to a point where even buying global phone will just work on some bands in us. Kind of like four g. Lt. foams do and in canada. So i think these phones feel like truly global phones to me. I think that the biggest challenge the biggest obstacle that existed in the pass with these two years ago three years ago. If you imported one was the software. Felt very chinese in the sense that it was. It's like it's hard to explain. But there's a certain flavor to chinese phones if you've ever used one that doesn't have google services on it and that's changed radically. I think caller west which is what apple runs which is an on top of android is even closer now to oxygen. Which is what one plus has which makes sense. Bbq groups same company but in the past. That wasn't always the case. And i think xiaomi's done a very good job as well as an improving it appears to be more you know more universal to the global markets to customers in different countries. So i really have no qualms with this phone i think. It's it's a solid all-round flagship. It brings to the table some things we've never seen before and it on top of that. You know short of the five g support from north. America is a truly global phone so alex. You're the only person among the four of us that uses this phone. Where in the markets intended give us your overview of how fits into the uk european market. And what your first impressions are so whether fit into the market. Whether hoping to the mock i think is in the gap. The is currently in the process of being vacated by wa so there is a a room for another major player in europe and the uk. And i think that's that's where they plan to slow us into already seeing that taking advantage of always current challenges in china whether the now the the number one manufacturer but yeah i think in terms of just the quality the phone. It's it builds on what we saw in the next two pro in little ways last year But the my money this is a little bit of a one. Step forward one step back. Sort of a situation They're all the things. I really enjoyed about the findings to pro- And it it just seemed to have every angle sort of covered in terms of photography and a big part of that is super zoom telephoto in it. Yeah oddly something that a lot of brands of moving away from this year with the exception of while way sometime maybe xiaomi That's something i really miss. Unfor- photography scented phone that seems like a big emission. Especially when you have this weird microscope thing which is fun to play around with but is not going to have anywhere near the practical value In terms like dealer photography assume would get you So that's one sort of disappointments. That i have with it Made worse by the fact that. I'm not a massive found. The microscope The other side air you. i know this is. This is a one. A one point of conflicts on this phone denialism massive out of the microscope. But just before we get to that. The other thing is Find extra prolapsed yet no wireless charging is kind of becoming a table. Stakes feature ever since apple introduced is Now we finally have that but the battery life is just null. Great unstaffed That's the problem right When you getting in the region of twelve to thirteen hours In its its fooling over after about three and a half hours screen on you know especially for me coming from pixel five and show. I've been spoiled a little bit by that phone but Yeah it's haunted. Described the boundary line for this thing is anything but just a big disappointment for me. I would agree with that in the week or so that i've used it especially coming from the galaxy s twenty one pixel five. This is a big battery. that just doesn't perform like a big battery but were still a month out from launch and miriam. I know you haven't spent a ton of time with it but what's your impression of. I wanna come back to the camera. Because i think the the cameras a sort of a question mark for me. Every time i've spoken to one. Plus they give me different answers for why they made the decisions they did around the load out but the phone. Form factor right. They made a big deal about this single piece of glass on the back and how they machine did and you know burned it in killing at seven hundred degrees and puts a magic spell on it to keep its shape and all that. What's your impression of the form of this device. It's really interesting. And i think it's something that a lot of people it's pretty arresting to somebody who's looking at it from the back for the first time. Yeah i love the design. I think it's really unique. A middle worried that you know. It's like form over function in some way. Because i mean at this price point. What's the price anyway. Do we know eleven hundred pounds or twelve hundred years this price. That's fine but i like so gonna be a thousand like it's about the same as the next to last year pros last year. But he's a little bit cheaper but yeah that over thousand dollar price point. I'm okay with the crazy. You know wizards type approach to making the thing with thousands of hours of manufacturing time. Whatever it might be. I think it looks really cool. I've got the kind of grayish color. One agree dark rate lack. I don't know what color that is. But it's looking at a mirror. The whole thing is one piece. It's very cool. My my thing is that i'm really happy. They added wireless charging. That was the thing that i wanted to make a final to pro my daily driver austere and it up with of course oneplus eight pro which is count like again you know the oneplus nine pro is going to be a dead ringer of this phone. So no surprise there like in many ways so the reason i couldn't do it because what trudging was missing. Now that's been remedied by battery life. I haven't tested yet. So i don't know but it might be a result of trying to run everything at one twenty hertz and quad hd. I feel that. If i have to compromise somewhere it's resolution usually my eight pro oneplus a prior run at ten eighty p right and probably run the oneplus nine pro and switched to it at ten pm. Pretty convinced. i'm going to switch to it so wait you're of all the phones that you've used including the galaxy s twenty one. You're still using the eight pro. Is your daily driver. Oh yeah no. Don't i don't want to switch to off and i have so many ops to reinstall and set up a one once a year thing and i have to pick wisely right last year. I decided that i was going to wait. For the pixel five and so i hung hoed with the pixel forty or whatever four acceler my pocket for a while and then i realized that the pixel five was giving giving me what i want and the four or five g was actually the better form but didn't have wireless charging in my opinion so then i went said. I need to make a decision. So i went eight pro and the reason for that is i want i want wanna pixel essentially but i wanna flagship right. So what's the closest you can get to that. You can't get a flagship from google anymore. Anyway i digress but back to the quickey unfortunately have just to go as soon but i feel that for me. What surprised me. The most is the telephone okay. I couldn't get numbers on this. Is it three x two x two x optical and switch to x optical with five x figs. Zoom whatever hybrid. That's hybrid probably looks okay at five x hybrid but probably know better than one hundred eight megapixel. That's trying to do five x kinda like the eleven right. Yeah these over the past It's just fine. I is is fine of five but go beyond five. It's a bit yeah. We had a paris copa. Like five x right. That was different from the oneplus. Eight pro which only had like three x telephoto. So i think the teleph- the the lack of the telephoto disappearing from almost everyone's phones except for you know an iphone doesn't really count because there's only two axe to me. Anything that's to excellence doesn't count. It has to be three more. And ideally it needs to have two of them like the s twenty one ultra or the. We p forty pro plus. Which was my darling camera phone last year. Despite the lack of gm's so you see. That's the reason. Part of the reason daniel that i went with the pro because i knew that if i needed a better camera just pull out a weiwei. P forty plus and carry that with me right and so so then. I guess the party question that i would ask is what would it take for the financial three pro to be your daily driver over the nine. The oneplus nine pro. Because they are so similar to things. And i want that i feel. Actually this might take away from this. Phone is that oppo is holding back for an ultra version. Yes that was my conspiracy theories. Well i feel like we're like because everybody's doing more than a pro. Now i feel that apple is exploring that ultra premium end. And he's gonna come out with a special edition of this phone. That will have a proper periscope telephoto. But what would make me switch would be more see right now. Could live with a two x telephoto. If it's any good. I don't know off to try it but i think for me. It's five g support simply. Because i'm on t. mobile in the us and it's actually beneficial in terms of network coverage for me it's not really beneficial terms of speed by re does give me slightly better performance in some fringe situations and that would be my big. My big request bought the other thing. That i'm interested intrigued. Bob because i haven't really had chance to tessies. Cameras yet. Is their choice of using the two identical fifty megapixel. I am seven six six sensors on the ultrawide and the main to get perfect color. Matching 'cause how's that worked out for you guys so interesting thing. That is the you in theory. That is what happens. But then you have the ai thing that's turned on. Which can you run. I'm not sure by default but if you use it You know it's very useful things in some situations but if you use it then you can get radically different looking switching between the two lenses if you don't have the tent on yet is obviously much closer as a parting thought. I have a feeling that while last year's apple finds pro would have been my choice for that time period of the year that first half of the year until the no twenty ultra came out. Which was my darling phone of the fall. But i switched to it because i was lazy. And of course he has twenty ultra. now is a pretty solid choice for photography. I think until until then until the eight pro last year the findings to pro choice other than wireless charging and five jeep but this year. I'm much more convinced that all want the oneplus nine pro. That's your segue as i'm leaving because for me. The one plus nine pro. F- i don't know all of the details yet but that hassle partnership has me intrigued and more importantly i know it's going to support all the bands properly in the us. And it's going to have wireless charging which i need and it's going to be a slightly smaller phone. I think this year which. I'm very happy about because the eight cross a freaking monster of a beast. It's too big for me over there. So i think the x three profiles held back to me somehow. Apple is i can know what apple can do and be group and this is very good by this. This aversion to telephoto in chinese phones right now xiaomi's doing it too is driving me nuts. I don't get it i want all of it. I don't care about microscope. it's cool. I don't care about a macro because an ultra wide can do macro like it is on this phone. It is on one plus pro phones

I company company continue to lead the pace of innovation but having said that We have been doing over the past few years really transforming the company into beyond mobile in oh always had a very strong in mobile business our core business also the licensing business but we started to grow into automotive starting to grow into analog with our ephron sorta grow into the beginning of that so the priorities will be continued to execute on this incredible opportunity. We have ahead of us. Which is five g which is also making telecommunications or communications in general no longer unique to the mobile space but across every other industry and really capitalized on that opportunity. Cristiano to that as you take on this role what are some of the biggest challenges facing qualcomm. Wh what keeps you up at night. The number one challenge we always said in. Our businesses is very unique. We have to reinvent ourselves every year. We have to win the flagship. You know over and over again every year so you know i think all of us qualcomm. It's about making sure hours was focused in driving technology roadmap to become complacent continued to drive the roma ford. And you know right now. If asked me what keeps me up at night right now is supply chain grads as having the semiconductor industry. I think it's the result of a lot of success in general about an acceleration of digital transformation across a number of industries. But this is causing a lot of stress as the supply ching was not prepared to deal with the growth. And but you know we're navigating a very happy to the position we have right now. When is the supply chain issue going to end like. Is this something that gets resolved. Pretty quickly or is it something. That's going to take a long time until like samsung and tsmc. Some of these other companies can build mark factories. No look if will get better at the end of this year we have line of sight and even our scale We're very fortunate very well position. And we have line of sight of this going to get result with entity or but you're correct Part of solving this problem is to a celebrates didn't build out more capacity and that is about building buildings in new clean rooms in new equipment. The way to think about that shara is When depend hits There was an assumption made in general across the industry that that the capacity for semiconductor. You know for if especially if there will be recession given pandemic mike you know was it was good in the reality. What we saw was the opposite the enterprise. Transformation of the home people buy new computers by new printers. New wi fi systems upgrading broadband companies had to connect their assets. So we saw celebration of. I'm not in digital transformation across the board Paper money disappear. That's people started digitize. You know everything payments Even a small business and we always said the mobile has been very resilient five g we said Into very beginning we state our five g numbers even the beginning of the pandemic said. If i've transition is still going it's important. We ended the year the high end so all those things happen for a capacity that was not put in play for growth. And i think we're just seeing you know the effects of of demand in supply. But the manda will catch up with Supply supplier vice versa towards the end of this calendar year one area. I'm really interested to hear about is the pc market You know obviously this is an area that had tons of demands over the past year for laptops and other devices report working from home call comes made a big push in putting your mobile chips in. pc's We saw apple. Come out with. Its m one powered max which proved to be extremely popular How is demand for those m one devices. Impacted your focus on pc chips. Hasn't your computers more and demands like what sort of impact has the m one had on akam pc. This days is one of my favorite topics. Conversations finger for discussion look rented and talk about the specific demand. For 'em one. This is a great opportunity to talk about the trend so the pc was being transformed and we always believe welcome that you know. They'll be conversions between mobile nbc and mobile became the bigger platform. They're more smartphones. Abc's to develop. Our eco-system is driven on the mobile side. And we believe in that convergence. That's where we started. You know several years ago. I think more than four years ago with microsoft on this journey of windows on snapdragon in now recently with starting to see snapdragon on chrome os in chromebooks then the pandemic hits and would have been hit. It change certain things forever. And i am super excited about this because like if you're talking to me from a pc right now. And i'm sure you are you. And roger. b. C became a communicator device. And as people make phone calls they started make a teams called zoom. Zoom became a verb in many languages in c. now is connected became a communicator device. Camera become really important. I'll do a multimedia became important. You doing you take a break. Watch netflix the future. With five g connected disease are going gonna watch Not only video but gonna play stream games with ex cloud an amazon luna luna or google stadia and all of that and then on top of it people. That had a workstation are home. They don't have a workstation to have their laptop but using five on demand computing. You'll get access to any application that you can run on the cloud computing platform of the cloud so the pc's completely transformed in apple switching to a m one with an arm instruction set just validated at transformation. Start moving developer as fast paced. So we're more convinced an ever. Conversions is going to happen b. C's going to be a great opportunity for expansion on snapdragon and it's that's one of the first things i did after being announced to co elect was to do the acquisition of nubia s. We believe there's an opportunity for us to lead into cpu performance as well as we start to think about this complete transitions of pc to associate. So let me let me ask gonna fall on that. Because i think we might have a new but one thought on this question about apple versus talk about the long-term opportunity but were you frustrated by the fact that you have been pushing snapdragon power laptops for a couple years now. That have really gained a lot. Traction while attention than apple comes in with the san juan and one powered mac guy huge buzz postal raving about these things whereas the other snapdragon laptops will ask. We have not really gone. The best to reviews was some frustration. That did you get to go back to your team coverage thick how you do this. I'm just curious your thoughts. On the the the different reactions that though snapdragon lockups had versus those and one. Max no no not at all i. Here's how answer this question roger. We knew that we started this journey. And this journey about a windows for example which is being running on x eighty six. You know Forever when needed to introduce arm extraction sets to windows and we work with microsoft and we knew that we're still building this journey as an example for example In this summer we're gonna now. We're celebrating that you know that next latest update for microsoft windows which announced support a sixty four. Bit emulation on orm in wish starting to see the very first time the enterprise ice laptops. Hp just launch commercial. Enterprise laptop with into snapdragon. So we're at the beginning of the ramp in the way we see the apple lounge. It's a great tailwind. Because what apple did by lounging does not only validated that transition but you know moved developer ecosystem the difficulty that you have when you try to introduce a new instruction set on the pc and this is not new to to apple. I think they've been to those that. That transition twice if you look at their history and then maybe have tried in the past trying to pass the longtime ago with a windows rt and and that really only works. When you're no longer have a second class you know a platform is just the great windows. Experience in every application is gonna run in. You're going to be able to keep everything you had a windows. Any wedded new coming from mobile platform in in. We believe we're now getting to the end of this journey in what what apple did which really help brother ecosystem. Apps apple helps microsoft basically create the resolve within developer system to start doing arm native apps going forward so my answer to a question is super. Please we're super excited invalidates. You know that bats. And i think that's going to happen Not only within. You know the apple wicca system but within windows as well as google and no question when we announced a new via acquisition if you look a press release was incredible as a parade of everybody to mobile nbc segment including microsoft in google in the saint press releasing. This is great. You know so. We're excited about that. Yeah i wanted to dive a little bit more into nubia You know you guys pay. I think one point four billion for this company started by former apple engineers. Basically you know why. Why do you need nubia okay. I'll you know i'll tell you. The story in this has a lot to do with the conversation we just had about. How welcome see some. The industry transitions in how we execute on them. So the story is if you remember back in tweet g. into feature phone days and the blackberry we knew as we brought four g and mobile broadband to the seller space. The will have to become computer. She's gonna have a broadband so you need to have a computer in your hand to make use of the broadband and you're going to have a prosser we're gonna run of have an application and In we knew at that point that you didn't have a high-performance processor for battery powered device we could not get that from the arm roadmap to so so we basically put together a cpu team and we build if you remember. Scorpion was very first. Gigahertz clock. cpu in a battery powered device After that crate in debt drove the absolutely majori of the smartphone platform across. You know that time you know indoor it was growing to other oh s.'s. At the time and clearly it was squawking was the forefront really creating a mobile computing platform with our own. Cpu

Qualcomm is announcing new technology. That promises to make wireless audio as good as if not better than wired audio and it's called qualcomm snapdragon sound. Why don't you tell me a little bit about it. Well qualcomm snapdragon sound. It's about delivering as you said the best audio experience.

How Covid led to a $60 billion global chip shortage for the auto industry

"To address the global shortage of semiconductors has caused production halts in the United States and industries, including autos, press Secretary Jen Psaki says the White House is discussing an immediate path forward with businesses and with trading partners. In the meantime, the president is expected to sign an executive order directing a government wide supply chain review. For critical goods over the next couple of weeks. The chip shortage is a central concern. Earlier, the CEOs of chip companies, including Intel, Qualcomm and MD. Had written to the president the urged him to support domestic production. The Semiconductor Industry Association says the U. S share of chip manufacturing Has dropped all the way down to 12%, and that's down from 37% back in 1990 people. After the bell Disney

Qualcomm stock drops despite earnings beat, 5G sales surge amid supply constraints

"After the battle, Qualcomm reported disappointing sales forecast the chip maker saying sales will be between 7.2 to $8 billion for the current quarter. Qualcomm's results for the last quarter did beat estimates. But some analysts were expecting more. And that's because the Apple, a major Qualcomm customer, reported surging iPhone revenue. Bloomberg's Ian King told us earlier that the company's performance was also occurred by supply constraints. Because of the pandemic. A lot of companies, particularly automakers, looked at the world and we're like, Oh, dear, the world is coming to an end. We're in, you know, collapsed. A. We need to shut down production. We need to shut down our orders with the council orders. So if you don't do that, then a couple of months later they are actually no, It's not looking quiet. But as I thought, that's what can I have Some more chips, please? Those things are not back on the shelves. Ready to go. Qualcomm count the outsources production to TSMC and Samsung and these air among the producers who have struggled to keep up with demand and some areas.

Qualcomms New Snapdragon 870

"Coming soon to millions of odroid phones qualcomm has unveiled. Its new snapdragon. Eight seventy chip which has a similar design to the eight sixty five and eight sixty five plus but is clocked at three point. Two gigahertz making it about ten percent faster than the eight sixty five. Quoting the verge. Think of it almost like a snapdragon. Eight sixty five plus plus qualcomm says that the reason for the new chip is in response to manufacture market demands. The eight seventy is designed for companies that want to offer a top tier processor. But don't need the absolute best features the flagship snapdragon eight eight offers and the higher price tag that it demands instead. The company says that it expects that snapdragon eight seventy pounds should hit a sub eight hundred dollar price tag. Although confusingly we've already seen snapdragon eight eight eight phones like the seven hundred and ninety nine dollar galaxy s twenty one. Start to bleed into that range presumably. There's also a marketing aspect here. The snapdragon eight seven new branding and modest if still real speed improvements over the snapdragon eight sixty five plus mean that companies using the chip in their phones. Get a new twenty twenty one chip to boast about on spec sheets without concerns of getting looked over by customers for having an outdated or old processor eight sixty five or eight sixty five plus and quote

Why Is 5G Going to Work Out Better Than 4G?

"So talk about four g and having that contributed to closing the digital divide. But there's still lots of parts of the country where you know four g still isn't around the the folks still can't get a stakes accelerate connection what i can split the difference with five g that allows it to get wide range that can cover more people than even four g. could the. It's it's a complex question to answer. I think in general in general In a we need to continue to build coverage and operators did a very good job in a getting as much a reach boss will for g five is just starting in were in optimistic about the coverage expansion of five gene. Two thousand twenty one in we wanted to get much coveted four g but then the next question is how do we even make even broader than that and the reason i feel you know optimism about the coverage been larger in five g over time is because now five g is clearly understood by many nations as critical infrastructure is not that different in thinking about the power grid. is going to be an essential infrastructure as we gonna be in connect to society connected depend on connected with the cloud in as operators has also have new business models in addition to just false. The incentive is there to increase the reach of this technology. So you will take ears but we're off to a great start

Qualcomm Putting Some Apple in Snapdragon!?

"Will you know that. Apple's been making a lot of progress with the silicon products. Put out and most. Recently people were talking about the m. One the mobile chip for laptops. And it'll probably make its way into desktop computers. They're pro stuff eventually some version of it they'll throw in exxon it number in there whatever. It is a bunch more course. So that's been the most recent thing that people have been talking about is kind of the performance. They've been able to achieve for a company that's so fresh to that market. But they're not really that fresh because they've been doing big things in the mobile processor department for a really long time with a series lineup culminating in the most recent version world away in a fourteen. Yes iphone twelve. Twelve pro Ipad air right has a version of that doesn't it. They put a different name on it. When it goes in the ipad honestly can't remember. Did they put an x. Or something huts in the okay. It appears to fourth generation ipad. Air as well okay. So anyways look. They're doing big things to the point. Where if you check the benchmarks. If you're one of these people apple just been crushing it for a really long time now. This doesn't always equate to being the fastest device. Interact with it. It really depends on the use case. Scenario and benchmarks are benchmarks. Take it for what it is but it does mean something. It means that that apple is doing big things in that department with the those engineers that work there and It's been a differentiating characteristic for them is not just the stuff has been an amazing performance perspective but also that they are so very integrated you know from the design and then the software and the The whole picture so it has kind of left people on the android side. Maybe a feeling a little little lacking now the necessarily me. Because typically. If i'm on the flagship snapdragon like not bumping into those performance barriers in most cases. But you know every company wants to have these bragging rights will listen to this. What took place today. Qualcomm hired a company. Called new via a nubia is a company which was a branch out of numb from a number of employees responsible for having worked on chips at apple. Okay these dudes new. They go out of their way. Like you know we can. We can do some stuff now if i. They were focused mostly on server side of things. They were not necessarily focused on mobile but obviously qualcomm saw something in their potentially whatever intellectual property exists inside of there while i hope not just their minds but also somewhere inside of their records and their designs or appease their you know whatever it is that they're working on qualcomm obviously thinks if they're gonna by the way they they spent one point four billion dollars qualcomm thinks they're going to extract some of that and potentially put it into their products via the snapdragon lineup. So this into this for a second okay. New was founded in two thousand nineteen and it was a a trio that were involved in the most important chipset companies from intel amd the api arm and broadcom and they worked at apple where they played a part in designing the high performance a series chips for iphones and ipads. That's the key line right there. And we've been talking about this in the other direction with apple and tesla apple out there grabbing some tests engineers tesla executives. It's like what do you know about it. Yeah it's a shakedown piece falling out there. That's how it works. You know they flip them upside down like the change comes out of the pockets. Yeah in cartoonish way. And that's how that's all they have to do and then they just send them on their way to go work. We got the change out. Your pocket. of course doesn't work like that. No i mean this stuff happens. How corporate world all right. That's how it goes so even though these guys aren't necessarily working a mobile chips right now qualcomm believes. There's something in there that there's a chance to do something. Big

Sorry, compute platform, You've got the performance and connectivity of energy, which is up to 10 times faster than four G. It's more secure than public WiFi and more efficient than a mobile hot spot. But it's thin. It's light and AM list, So it's silent and cool to the touch when you use it and get this. You can get a multi day battery life from a single charge. So you're just gonna have to search for that outlet nearly as much as you normally do.

"It is <hes>. We're recording this a little bit before the time that you're hearing this but i'm very pleased to bring you a really cool interview with the ziada oscar. He's the vice president for product management of the snapdragon roadmap and application processor technologies according to his linked in page ziade. Thanks for being with us today. Thank you thank you for having me looking forward to the discussion. That's a very long title so just just reduce that down for us. What exactly do you do over at qualcomm. Sure so basically my team. We look at all the different technologies that make up the snapdragon products. And we're looking at you know different technology inflections on camera graphics and other areas and we basically bring it all together and to put the product <hes> together with the best in class experiences and then of course looking across all the different products that we do at qualcomm from a roadmap perspective much simpler than it sounds. Okay but you're busy every day because the snapdragon we said this. We talked to alex last year and it was a it was a great discussion about the snapdragon <hes>. Sixty five and one thing that he said was you know it's no you can't say that qualcomm platform is just the cpu and gpu anymore. So we're gonna get into what exactly the the big announcement is <hes>. First let's just call it out. It's the it's the snapdragon eight hundred eighty eight five. This is the latest and greatest. The chip that's gonna power. Probably most of the flagship phones throughout twenty twenty one <hes>. We're announcing it in december right. You're this december second when you're hearing this and can you just give us the thirty second elevator pitch about snapdragon eight and what exactly is better indifferent. Last year's snapdragon eight sixty five absolutely so the snapdragon eight hundred years this bar in terms of premium tier smartphone performance and. What we do is every year all the new innovations on all technology. Vectors come into the snapdragon eight hundred tier embiid snapdragon. Eight eight eight. We actually pushed the bar further with much more experiences which significant enhanced camera capabilities and even better gaming in addition to the fact that we have five thirty capability integrated into this product <hes>. We look at <hes>. You know trying to create devices based on this that have new use cases coming up for consumers but example lost you'll be able to show machine translation as one example is happening on the device. This year will show a lot more demonstrations that <hes>. that will really while the consumers. We believe all right. So let's start with the obvious stuff. People wanna know how much faster the eight is over the previous snapdragon. The it's sixty five. This is the first year that there's a cortex x one based core. This is the the announcement from from arm earlier in the year that they were moving to the sort of like really big core than big core and then than efficiency course walk us through exactly the makeup of the new <hes> crowd k-r-i-k-o-r and how this prime cpu got larger cash. It's got a higher clock speed over the performance scores. How does that factor into how people experience eight eighty eight on a daily basis. Absolutely so from a cpa perspective. What you're able to get through the much better. Cpu is far better browser experience a device. That is much more. Snappier in terms of responsiveness right. So many are launching a new application for example a new app. It's able to bring that up much faster where we're able to do in the past all the experiences get better in that sense <hes>. With the new crowd that we have in the snapdragon eight this is the first cebu cluster where we actually have three distinct. Cpi cheese inder. We as you pointed out. We have the latest accord from arm. The gortex x one <hes>. One of those course. And then we have three of the gortex eight seventy eights at which are the you can think of. It has performance scores the prime core which the cortex one three performance scores and four <hes>. Efficiency goals which is which are the cortex a fifty five and they all come together. We basically work on wrapping around with our architecture of our power <hes>. Goodness there to be able to get the best performance per unit power. The unique thing about the way. Snapdragon implements these. Cpa uses that we are able to the cpu's sixteen bidders of time <hes>. And not have to throttled so we put a lot of technology in there to be able to get usable performance out of

"qualcomm" Discussed on Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood

"When it comes to rolling out five G.. There are a lot of moving parts at the heart hearts of the stories. It's qualcomm the company makes wireless chips for your phone and develops and licenses other technology in the wireless industry and it's been pushing five Gerard like future of the business hard but there are aspects of the five G. Rollout qualcomm can't control like how long it takes infrastructure to make it into you every neighborhood in the country. The company is also the subject of an F. T. C. investigation over whether it abused its monopoly. Position in four G.. Technology to charge too much for licensing. It actually settled a long-running lawsuit with apple over the same thing. Last April Cristiano Amman is the president of QUALCOMM. And we spoke about all of this at in Las Vegas starting with the promise of five G.. Basically as you bring the computational power of the cloud cloud all of the data that exists in the cloud to any device and one of the things we said in the very beginning of this transition in the five era era will develop side by side with five G.. Just because you're connected to Clo- you have a lot of data you can apply machine learning tool the data five days also technology that I think we've I've been waiting for right. We've been talking about the promise for a long time consumers. Being consumers people are getting impatient. At what point do you think people are getting frustrated. Or they're gonNA. I say this is all hype and no reality. I agree those things. Take time for you to have all of those benefits technology you have to have coverage infrastructure instructor needs to be built. There is no free lunch unless you have covers. You Not GonNa get there. We have a couple of things that would dealing with as an industry. I I if you look at United States one of the number one obstacles when you talk to operators its ability to get new sites up and they are working working with municipalities one at a time China for example have identified one million sites for five G. until the end of two thousand twenty. It also sounds like five day deployment is really important to your long term business success. I mean is there any world I can just hear the open source community city saying like listen you could potentially make some of this available for everybody to build on to accelerate the ecosystem. Well that's what we do if you were an automaker or if you're an industrial company and let's say you're Bausch and you're making manufacturing robots and you want to add five g you have to build. Put An engineering capability of a Samsung or apple. To be able to deal with this and what qualcomm offers is will provide you a license. Essence would provide you a chipset would provide a reference design. We provide your software. You can easily add seller to your robots industrial machine to your car and if you we don't have a model that is horizontal in creates eco-system. You actually prevent all of those other industries to get access to sell it. They have to build a cellular or phone company to be able to do it. And that is why we think five G. we're going to see an expansion of the licensing model not the other the other direction. Yeah this is a little bit of a left turn but we've been doing a lot of coverage on climate and how technology in the tech industry can help us adapt be more. Resilient may maybe maintain emergency communications. How do you see welcomes role in sustainability and resilience and climate conversation overall? Look I I feel I feel. It's a IT'S A. It's an interesting I agree with you. It's I didn't expect that question but The way the way we think about is I at the very basic. We're a company that developed technology for a battery powered device like we don't have the luxury extre- in into technology that we do to assume that we're going to be plugged into wall so we're probably being br building a lot of efficiency. That's no no Secret why we've been so successful in automotive because as an industry like any all of the industry really try to address How they can be more efficient consume laugh? You will consume less electricity and I think as a general. I think that's one of the things that we contribute. The other thing is by making everything connected it. There is a significant increase in productivity. Even when you think I'm trying to provide more of a vision but we always said that that every year that goes by you do more of your work and your phone And I think that's going to change over time with everything connected enact productivity people will be able to Damore to work at home. They won't be able to connect with other people without having to be there and I think there's a lot of in direct benefits of basically providing technology that allow everything to be connected. I do as long as we're in our awkward questions phase WanNa talk about licensing Because parts of that business model of come under scrutiny qualcomm Ben in a long legal battle with the Federal Federal Trade Commission over whether some of those this licensing agreements have reached monopoly status. Do Plan to approach five licensing any differently in light of those disputes. Look there's so much I can tell you about. You know the dispute. I think other than the public statements were made. Were very pleased and was the right decision. You know for us to be granted at stay and I. I think we're waiting for the appeal. But we can tell you is we. We actually have a very vibrant Licensed business more though. That equi enables competition competition. We're very pleased that we have many companies that sign a five t license with qualcomm independent of the dispute in even post the ruling and That validation that you know we have a competitive business model and actually won the provides growth in competition industry. All right last question because you first joined qualcomm. Welcome in Nineteen Ninety five when the company was just ten years old. And you've left income back since then but I just. I wonder what that journey has been like in this entire ecosystem system. It's an. It's an incredible company. Actually I was fortunate enough to join before the first. CDMA network was able to see. Every single transition of wireless ARLEDGE LENDS EIGHTY FIVE THIRTY ONE G two G to three G. to four G. Five G. so I've been to all of those it's really fascinating to see how seller changed the society. It's one of those few opportunities dead and I think all of our employees feel that you can work on something that you actually no that changed the society and It's also interesting to see that we. We may bet that everybody. In each one of those bats knowing exception told us that's That's not gonNA work or there's no need for this and And we'll we'll be able to see as we state with their vision to transformation and I don't WanNa go back all the way to CMA. But I'll tell you an example when when when we first talk about four g you know it was fascinating to see. All of the analysts on their blackberrys sending emails to each other saying a WHO needs a hundred megabits per phone. Nobody needs it. I have living I need to have my email I have all of the. DSM is good enough for email and blackberrys now and Ns US and now we see people say hi. Paul needs to be connected with the cloud and you know multiple gigabits of Speed Woolsey. Cristiano Amman is the president of QUALCOMM. All Com we spoke at. CAS in Las Vegas and now for some related links you heard heard Cristiano Amman touch on the topic of welcomes legal. Disputes Seeking Alpha has a story up the talks about how the trump administration wants to argue at qualcomm. FTC appeal the hearing is set to be on February thirteenth last fall Bloomberg reported that the FTC is at odds with the trump administration which really doesn't want the US to fall behind China. In terms of five G technology qualcomm owns more than one hundred and forty thousand patents. On almost all aspects of Cell Phone Technology Licensing Insignia Tech is how the company makes most of profit although most of its revenue actually comes from selling chips now a US District Court judge previously ruled. That qualcomm Tom. Licensing Agreements hurt competition and ordered the company to renegotiate all its deals with phone makers but on appeal that order was put on hold until the FTC not see cases settled members of the FTC including chairman. Joseph Simon say it was very unusual for the trump administration and the Justice Department to intervene. It's anti-trust investigation and also said that the FTC is not very happy about it but the move shows just how worried this administration is about getting to five G. I remember last year around this time. There were rumors that trump's national security team wanted to actually nationalize a single five network in the US. QUALCOMM got friends in high places. You can find those links as well as my other big interviews from CAS over at Marketplace Tech Dot Org. I'm Ali would and that's marketplace tech. This is a P._M...

"Galaxy book announcement. But it's not available so clearly the PX is a really really expensive chip So make sense that they're trying to lower the cost to partners and eventually they need multiple tiers. Look like just what they're doing the phone shirt but it yet again like it's feels. This is a very first generation products yet. Those two like the extra park in the compute part. When you see what happens day? It doesn't feel like it's on the same level of progress as we were just talking about in the mobile in the networking in space. where it's like? Wow they're really hitting you know. A lot of things making big strides. Sure I mean you have to remember like this is a company that also got blindsided by apple school with sixty four bit. AP's and put up snapdragon eight ten and have a disastrous year as a result of that. So we you know qualcomm is not. It's not batting a thousand. Let's put it like that and I think this is a good example So I mean that's basically it right. There were a lot of major announcements announcements but they mainly focused around the eight sixty five and seven sixty five And within that I think camera five G. in a they are the most interesting with gaming quite interesting but for us I think not as important Following closely behind I mean that's basically all I have to say about the qualcomm stuff Is there anything else you had had. I thought about them as well. And there's always the waiting for the products to draw now. We play the waiting game until the Galaxy S. eleven in comes out and then we see how much of this comes to fruition in In what it does You know which of those features Samsung Decides to take to make the biggest deal out of them and then what happens when the show. ME's autos come out in really do do crazy things because they liked to really push the boundaries in terms of specs in crazy features what they do and what Motorola Nokia those kind of manufacturers are doing with the seven hundred series like all of this stuff just gets revisited in three months in six months when the the spring and summer releases come out and we actually see all the devices using them and five G. is going to be a part of both of those discussions. But it's just it's I'M NOT GONNA be the headline feature in the same way that all of the imaging things are in the performance and the graphics. Although the carrier's we're GONNA try their best to make five I g happen especially when they can get phones that are less than nine hundred dollars Running on five G. but I mean Alex pointed out. It's going to pretty soon. is going to be hard to get an LT yielding phone. Exactly I mean the snapdragon. Eight sixty five we will reiterate does not ship without five G. and all of these phones are going to. They're going to have eight sixty five. They're not just going to ship the eight fifty five because they don't don't WanNa have five jeep and it also means you're a sixty five powered phone more expensive even if you don't live in a country or an area with five G. So let's let's finish off talking about. I think thinks something that people are really interested. You got a chance to try the new Three D. Sonic Max yes. Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that's the successor to the very underwhelming extremely if ultrasonic finke protective logically impressive but very poorly executed. Yeah the one that was found. The Galaxy S. ten in no ten series. And tell us about what you saw from that while I was obviously skeptical about it after using S. ten in no ten and just end end more importantly using optical sensors and things end pluses phones. That are great. You know bigger and faster easier. Recognize This is seventeen times the size of the original sensor which seems crazy. They make that big of a jump. The it's not four times larger. Yeah whatever it just shows how small the original one was though because seventeen times. Larger is not like the bottom third of the screen or something. I think I described. It is about the size of at three postage stamps area In setup an rectangle and manufacturers can put it wherever they want they had Komo device where it was. Just a you know right where you're thumbs would roughly land But the best thing is the size of it means you're thump is enough to land Dan anywhere in particular it. Just you know can go anywhere. At any angle it can check for your fingerprint. No matter what and also gives the the ability to have AH double finger Authentication with both thumbs or you know whatever you WanNa do a summit an index finger if you really WanNa get funky yet the use cases there are quite interesting interesting because that That system the OEM just can decide to have something built into the software where you know. Maybe you WanNa Matt Unlock a higher level of security for Banking Adler something. WHATEVER THEY WANNA do it requires both fingerprints to be recognized? Recognize at the same time in order to unlock. It's not a one or the other thing. Because that's regular fingerprint. Sensors can do one or the other and the next level thing that they didn't talk talk about it I but they show him. The demos very interesting is that Because it's an ultrasonic sensor it can also read your heart rate and blood flow through your fingers ears and that can also be used as an extra authentication method. I it's not something that's there by default because it takes a lot longer but you can put your finger on the the screen it checks the you have. There's blood in the finger and that you have a ongoing pulse so it's actually a live person. It's not a a model of a fingerprint rant. And then it goes through the fingerprint recognition recognition process. You combine all these things to have even higher security and the ultrasonic fingerprint imprint sensor is I think in general within the typical margin of error of all of these fingerprint sensors but it was always just so slow and so inconsistent that the biggest things are. It's big enough to build your finger anywhere on it and it was so so fast you just as fast fast or faster than what I used to. On a capacity fingerprint sensor or on the won't plus seven series which are super fast yet speaking. The interesting thing was the demo device was one hundred percent. I guarantee you will bless seven Perot with different fingerprints which is very funny. Because because they had like a big bulky case on it. But it's like this. The animation for the fingerprint sensor was the same as the So it's like Okay One plus. It knows how to do this. And those were with it. I I would be shocked if one plus went to an ultrasonic for the fault for the next one just because it's going to be so much more expensive expensive and yeah they would one plus kind of company that would just use the exact same optical sensor that they're doing now and it works it works in its fast yet exam But the that that was really interesting to see but it's most likely going to be the Galaxy S. eleven that that has I and that's something You know it all comes back and I WANNA I WANNA disclose this up by by bringing the conversation back the fact none of this matters. Unless the manufacturer manufacturer takes what Qualcomm is giving it and actually turns into usable features and whether it's the three sonic fingerprint sensor or four eight cade thirty video capture or surround sound audio output. All these things yes all optional and this is this this is the compelling but it's optional and it's all about cost benefit analysis for these manufacturers right. Samsung has to choose how they they don't just buy the snapdragon sixty five and put it in the phone. They have to license. A whole bunch of these technologies from qualcomm to have this ongoing support structure and that is not cheap and if you were already looking at a galaxy ten being thousand dollars Galaxy s galaxy. How's he not ten being you know? Twelve hundred twelve hundred bucks That is not is not going to be beyond find a reason to expect the Galaxy S. Eleven to start at eleven twelve hundred dollars. Yeah and plus version for sure and especially since they're gonna be going hard the fact that all of the Galaxy S. ten eleven support five G.. They're going to build that into the into the cost so very interesting in twenty twenty two seat see. The tolerance of of people's tolerance for these increase prices and weather may factors can convince consumers us who were normally. Okay spending eight nine hundred dollars but not beyond that to buy a phone with a seven sixty five in it right. At what point is the. US MARKET GONNA be inundated with seven hundred series phones like the rest of the world and our that our six hundred dollars instead shirt and is a good enough. You know Alex said that a seven sixty five has performance that is in between the forty five and eight fifty five. So that's pretty good but it's certainly we we've seen we've experienced that the last two years so our our enthusiasts like us going to be okay with a slower chip hip that has all of the same. Ai and some of the you know the camera feature is as the current generation. That's always been a question that we've asked but has never been one that we've had to answer because we just haven't had any seven hundred series chips. In in the end the the highest level flagships have been relatively affordable. You've been able to get devices with the highest level chips for for a good price. Yeah I mean that's not. This is not going to be the case anymore. I think what plus for instance is going to be really. That'll it'll be the bellwether for me. What won't plus eight pro ends up costing just look at? What the seventy profile? Jesus I mean by nine hundred dollars others said just keep that in mind so I think we're going to end it there.

"And they there's there's this sort of like the fair use kind of idea of win does a company get to protect its assets in wind is it have to kind of be a little bit more equal. So it was actually I was actually hoping for for some some closure on this particular this particular thing because I think like both apple in Qualcomm had some pretty good arguments. From just the information that I've read about it. And I don't know. So we just have to wait for the next company to to jump on that board to find out. What's really going to happen? It's a bummer. Usually this kind of thing is settled before you go to trial, the threat of going to trial and of discovery often is sufficient to bring the parties together. It wasn't in this case. It may be that once the trial began the judge set the two parties down instead on want this trial to go on unique. Yeah. It may be that apple saw something in Qualcomm presentation or Qualcomm, actually, I think apple presented. I I I'm not sure you know, what happened but something happened. Obviously. Maybe they looked at the jury and said we're gonna lose. But something happened on Monday can cause them to come to the table and settle today. So that's that's actually good observation because sometimes a judge will not direct to the the two parties to settle but indicate that things the situation as it stands right now says that you as now isn't really great time, wink, wink, settle before we move forward. Now for reasons that are apparent to everybody inside this courtroom. That will take the bravado of out of a lot of people. Yeah. I think that's the case. I don't have a lot of experience, but I have a little bit of experience with this. And I I kind kinda know, you know, the stages of how this happens, of course, these companies have millions to spend on attorneys, but the these fees get high, and I think really one of the things that's most scary for these companies. I know it has been in the past for Apple's discovery. And you, you know, and that's already happened. So I'm I'm not sure what happened..

"And if this Qualcomm had a very dominant position Qualcomm was the only maker of CD may technology which too big carriers in the United States. Rely upon Qualcomm makes CPU's that apple doesn't buy. But others do Qualcomm makes these modems that apple must buy if they want to work on these two carriers and. You know, it's advantages for apple as a company to use one modem chip across their entire line because they don't have to have different skews making one skew is easier than making ten skews right to maintain things. Yes. I. And so this is Qualcomm trying to keep their dominance trying to keep the money rolling in from that dominance, and it's already beginning to slip away because judge Lucy Koh ruled in different case the preliminary ruling was calling Qualcomm to license their technology to rivals. Said technology shouldn't I be? I mean, I'm simplifying because I don't understand. I invent something. Why should I give it away? Well, there's there's the point of having a patent is that you can then license it out or collect from people infringe upon it. And the that there are some patents that are considered. So essential that they have what's called Frand around the which says that you have to have a fair licensing regime. Okay. And it's not clear that this falls under that. But judge co calling for them to ruling that they have to license it out is heading that direction. I hear her name lot always to do technology. She did she knows. She was the judge who ruled on the Samsung apple case in its day. There's so many different appeals for this. But I think it's still Samsung into paying, but they ended up paying a lot less than they originally had to. All right. Okay. So she's extremely well versed in technology. So what she says presumably goes. Well, that's the way judge's ruling works. Yes. But yeah, see this accusations in suits back and forth. Here apples withholding royalty payments until this gets sorted out. So there's that Qualcomm Zeman trying to win iphone bands in other countries as well Qualcomm is trying to win a ban on the iphone sales in US. She would have been the last time we spoke about this. Because Kokomo just said they would knocking at the door solution with Athol. They said it'd be any Allen. -cation? Well, feels unlikely they wanted to reach the settlement. They said they were ready to reach the settlement. And judge Koh said, no, we're going to take this all the way. And so Qualcomm is still doing these tricks. Okay. Well, I suppose, you know, I know what they're doing. Right. So a panel of judges at the International Trade Commission, reviewing a previous ruling the agency made they previously decided that an iphone ban is not in the public interest. But they're reviewing it again. And seeing if patent was violated to that, we'll be revenge examined as well as the product ban. Okay. So what's the worst thing that could happen here? Live is that iphones will no longer be allowed to be sold in the United States. That would be pretty bad. Okay. That would be a hair on fire catastrophic moment for apple. Yeah. Yeah. Little bit. Okay. I guess I'm still going to be happy. So you know, everybody wins. Everybody loses in some sort of white. Samsung would be. Call come to be happy 'cause Qualcomm cells CPU's and modems to Sampson go to companies feed one on happy. I'm being triggered about this. Because presumably it's impossible radium, practical ways, but this will happen. But it's a at least theoretical you say that but two thousand eighteen has been the year where two thousand eighteen cents to two thousand seventeen in two thousand sixteen impossible, hold my beer, and it's been a year of wildly improbable things. Coming to pass. Yes. You agree. Yeah. Challenge accepted than hold my bad. But I just I don't drink. Okay. Yes. Would you settle for? Hey watch. This y'all if If I I if it if was. it was. Fine. Yes. Moving from this then so apple in response to this is going to develop their own cell modem. I will that's how they shop isn't that? Because Upul wants to make everything that it makes them you can understand why it's done. So successfully before we got the hall goodness. Mixed up down prices for the MAC. That's the happening gung tap into obviously about to happen like from the above. So. Yeah, COCOM was on borrowed time..

"They put on behalf of Facebook. But the the, you know, they were disseminating these stories critical of apple and of cook they posted Fifty-seven articles at least pertaining to the company this year and some of them directly addressed the dispute with Qualcomm, so that one does subtle one. But there are more ones that are more directly like the idea that the iphone eight would be slower than the competition because it uses chips made by until not Qualcomm and. What what that fails to point out is that well that's somewhat true that there are iphone aids. The totally did ship with Qualcomm in them, namely the sprint and Verizon models and those models were were slightly faster than the Intel ones not measurably. You know, this is this goes back to the kind of thing when Samsung and TNC were both making the processors for iphone, and we had people trying to compare which chip was faster, which chip was better because they were built on a slightly different process at one point. But the here that was definitely trying to make Qualcomm cast aspersion on on Intel's. Apple's products aren't quite as good anymore because they don't have Qualcomm inside. And you know, this stuff doesn't happen vacuum. Because in addition to those articles being published in being run and fifty seven is not a small number. Getting fifty seven pieces published is is pretty good for any public relations firm. I'm most excited about fifty seven things getting in a friend's NPR who very pleased without Reynosa Republicans who are very pro L PG T. So it's a messy area that they've chosen to go huddling bathroom. They are a DC area. PR firm. There are no strangers to political topics like that.

"Now, we were talking before we started recording a little bit about the news. And there's there's this whole thing going on with Qualcomm, right? Do you? Are you interested in quote calm toll? If you mentioned it soon any previous episodes. Do you think? No, no. Why would I I mean, so Qualcomm is in this big lawsuit with apple over licensing fees? Really royalties is what it comes down to. And the idea is that apple believes they've been paying too much for royalties that in some cases, even double billed and Qualcomm just wants the money. They've done everything. Right. According to them, they won't get paid. Both sides are reasonably tenable unless you have the numbers look at you say Qualcomm has this property. They should get paid for it. Yes. Sure. And the difficulty is if there's a case where the manufacturer the contract manufacturer is paying to use the licensed paying to use the. Analogy and then apple is also paying because they're shipping a product within. Then that's double billing. Okay. That makes sense. Yes. The other question is are these things punitive now judge Lucy Koh already rule that call commies to license this stuff out? Which is good news for Intel in media attack. Because then they can make radios with the same technology in it and Qualcomm was trying to settle Qualcomm was trying to get things wrapped up and and settle and avoid going to trial that has not happened. Can he's going to trial. In the meantime, it's come out that there is a PR firm. Now, this PR firm had been hired all get to the point PR from had been hired by Facebook to write nasty things at critics after the Cambrian Olympic debacle. This same PR firm definers public affairs was hired by Qualcomm and conducted campaigns against apple and there was a a website called draft. Tim cook twenty twenty which was was acting as if they wanted to try and recruit Tim cook to run for president of the United States of America, and this is sort of a subtle attack. Right. Because it's Mr. Cooke, very outspoken, right? He's very outspoken on civil rights. He's very. Outspoken on privacy rights as a civil right? He's been pushing for privacy legislation least talking about the idea of it. And so when definer says draft twenty twenty draft him took twenty they're not activists saying they want to cook for president. They're saying that as a chairman of a company he's acting out of place by involving himself in politics. I'll say now I didn't appreciate that a toll. I just thought you know, that's nice now I make that makes us the positioning him into an uncomfortable. I'd love the fact that you're into co come for the technical stuff on I'm into it for the business scientist, how it works, and it's all coming together through this. Now, obviously, there's another adding to this, which is that Tim cook is a well-known. Person who trends tours, liberal sides of politics? Right. He he doesn't actively say who identifies with. But it is clear that his focus is on positions that are at least traditionally associated with liberal side of politics like support for LGBT rights support for civil rights support for equality in the workplace support for privacy for every end user. These are things that that are positions that one might associate with that. So they're also putting this up as a way of trying to make conservative voters, or let's let's say today's modern Republican uncomfortable with the idea of that and sort of put a psychological wedge between them and apple now that doesn't actually work out because there are many well-known conservative talking heads who are. Are apple fans without shame without fear. You know, Rush Limbaugh gives away iphones. Whenever new iphone is launched kind of thing. He you know, he regularly like when the iphone eight was launched. He gave away a ton of iphone eight for two weeks running something like that just to anyone who called into his show. He did call in and say, hey, do you have a phone, and it gives you a phone? Give them give him the red one give him the plus model. He would do that. And he talks regularly, and this is a normal thing. So definers was trying to to do this in a interesting in subtle way. Create this kind of message now, it's it's not nearly as nasty as the message..

"Never miss a critical alert again with ops Fini, and I should mention those those five team accounts, those are real accounts. They're not they're not trial accounts or limited account time. Limited accounts, you know, their their basic standard level real accounts. Which is kind of a nice deal. It's touch. It's very impressive. Okay. You do well with this on you. I mean, basically a free account though, it's five the full. She percent off the PDF. And it's a. We own the Buhl today, we really really do look out for our listener as much as we possibly can we here for you guys. We are. Now last week. We talked briefly about Qualcomm at the end of the upset. Yes. Apple is on hiring spree. What do you think they're hiring for any chance said that hiring sort of rises who might perhaps not understand USB? See? Actually, surprisingly. Yes, they are. They're hiring marketing copy and newsroom editors. And so yes, you could totally go ahead and apply for those jobs. But I'm guessing that's possibly not where you're going with this. Qualcomm related pull tool William if you want to leave the podcast so badly. We can let you go. If you want to go for apple you can do that. And I will support wholeheartedly. I want the very best for you. But that's not what I was talking about. I was talking about apple is aggressively. Hiring four G and five wireless engineers. That's very similar. Okay. I'm guessing from Qualcomm by any chance upside, I know this story they are hiring them conveniently in Qualcomm hometown right around Qualcomm headquarters in San Diego. Here's the basic news. Okay. Apple hiring. Qualcomm engineers isn't a very new kind of is not a new situation. Apples been looking at acquiring Qualcomm talent for years. And we I started noticing this in about two thousand fourteen in two thousand seventeen apple hired vice president for a system on a chip project lead position. So apple has been pretty much dependent on third parties for their whilst technology for years. But they used the Qualcomm modem and then the. To the Intel modem and with the latest development in the Qualcomm dispute. Over licensing Qualcomm was required by judge co two licensed their technology, which makes things better for Intel and MediaTek. It also opens the door that apple could license that technology make their own wireless modems. Although no one's talked about them doing so, but by hiring in the San Diego area, which is an area that's known for chip design in general, you know, they could go ahead and make their own and be free of wifi manufacturers be free of cellular modem manufacturers and just optimize their own modems for everything. That'll sounds good. But my mind's on the the San Diego area. San Diego's lovely have you ever been? No, I haven't. But it's wonderful. There is not a day of bad weather ever in San Diego. There are okay. There are ten job listings in San Diego, the first ever public Ruben for chip design in San Diego people who are hired. We'll be working on things like wireless chips and the neural engine in the a series processors. Okay now. So there are a number of different types.

"Right and the point is that you should get paid for your work but you can't exclude people or like cut special deals or things on those lines and that's that's one type of patent that goes into these the other type is like we create them is not part of the standard but it is a genuine breakthrough if you wanna use that then qualcomm gonna go she it whatever sort of rights and licenses they want and and the reality is that is that qualcomm is you know this this article maybe came across as somewhat complementary of qualcomm but they're also sort of repay ships when it comes through their licensing and rights fees and they have all sorts of sketchy sort of behavior whether it be incentivizing you through rebates and discounts to go with their things which is they're being sued for both by the ftc and also by apple and they've been found guilty in south korea they've been found guilty in china and so there are a company that at a minimum skirts the very edge like what is legal and what what is illegal as far as leveraging this stuff they do things like they charge based a big part of the apple dispute is qualcomm charges royalties based on the final price of the phone which means they're taking x percent of seven hundred dollars for an iphone for example x percent of thousand dollars for an iphone ten and apples like that's totally ridiculous because your technologies are is not what is allowing us to charge a high price year technologies in the apples are in we should be able to pay on a on a parade in basis for example and then you know here's a say qualcomm is very much out to get their pound of flesh and that's where they make the vast majority of their money it's interesting.
