"Yeah the air and the gas has travels though box new awesome thing about texas in alberta in bc and there's always a prevailing wind. Wendy there's a lot of good natural transport that happens we Do a lot of testing up in canada with these devices and were before we selected these the sense that we're using a lot of literature. A lot of research has been done in the space using the very sense of using Know one study before we pick these sensors and they were showing. They're able to get clear. Detections up to one and a half kilometers from site ella. We conservatively deployed within. We say one sensor has a detection radius about one hundred meters. Yup there's obviously. I talked about the limits before but you know we think that within one hundred meters if you think about a radius We can catch leaks. Colin tunisia camera. So depending on your pets. Your pat sizes. I by twenty five. Then you could have one device on the prevailing wind direction yet and as long as down on the side of the prevailing winds should be captured. All of it. Yeah for some are larger deployments in your big Batteries or guests messing facilities gas plants and whatnot. You know we'll deploy four five We charge per dot per device basis. So what's the business model behind it. Are you guys you know. Because you have hardware and software component to serve as it per device plus access to the data platform you know sas revenue. How do you guys yeah. It's it's very so much like a law firm so there is a kind of a small upfront component. Where we you effectively vice and calibration installation of it and then there's an ongoing piece which is on a month per device basis the thing about it as your iphone phone. Yeah you pay for vice and you pay for the on yet. I'm a we call it. The mantra fee are you know going back to lowest cost right. The fewer devices that we can deploy onto site without losing. Information is what we're trying to do. And that's what. A lot of data signs team is focused on edition tool inferences. How can i monitor this. I given the wind given the geometry and lexi with the fewest sensors as possible. That those savings i can pass on to my operator therefore i can potentially convince him to deploy more of these devices and other sites as well so that we typically right now will deploy like max of like four to six devices Some sites we have to two vices on our they set out their free standing or do they mount to take batteries or yes so someone driving open just like picking it up and driving off shit because we were in in midland like in candid. A lot of sites. Have fence line around him. You know i come from. I know what happens out. I'm asking yes. We have kind of two methods of installation. It's really easy to install these twenty minutes up single person's shopping's onto a fence line. Yeah we also have a tripod. Soon war some sandbags on the tripod. And yeah we we have internal. Gps of things does move in search driving down somewhere at eighty miles per hour. It's probably going to be rolling But yeah we typically deployed around the fence line and you mentioned tanks and few patches and.

"How much production we spiking and then knowing relative to the site where the complaint was coming from like we're now giving them the continue state and say. Hey you know the house to the east of us complain about an odor issue. Here's all the data that shows. The wind was blowing in the complete opposite direction. Talked to the next over. Yeah there's the data to prove that you're not the group but also equally so like you know if they did find its blowing eastern we are the culprit that we can proactive as the operating digging practically addresses issues before it goes to the regulator and you are their customers one of the things that we didn't realize our our devices can be used as a a stakeholder engagement and one of the things that we did with them actually recently instead of the point q devices around their site they actually deploy them out to their a nearby farmers line owners. Listen help us monitor. This is you know were part of the community. let's we. We may not be aware of things that are coming onto your site but now that we have this device that centered around the perimeter of actual land monitor that. Yeah you'll see when you go out to midland. That midland smells. I guess it is like it's gotten very distinct smell and even if you out and like more Western parts like oldfield's outside of andrews or eastern new mexico. I mean it just reeks of gas leak. You can smell it and this very distinct smell On this box like we don't have a cuban front of us like how big are we talking is something like i can hold my hands or totally it's i mean it's about i guess. Twelve inches by mount v. It's kinda of like yeah. I mean it's size of like a small igloo cooler size. Yeah yeah and so. The durability of the singer mean like you mentioned you know it's built for high. He's going to be in extreme cold temperatures up there in alberta But like as far as like weathering and everything you know you've got these components on the inside of the box. How how does it actually sniff. The gases are there vents on the side of of the box where that's how sensors are accessing gasson. How does that you know how to elements like on west. Texas is just desert right. So you don't wanna bunch of dust and sand getting into this box coating it so yeah which. This knows girton question. I mean it's it's it's a lot of design. Asu we put into our hardware if you think about the boxes like there's a sampling chamber in there so we actually have these wind vanes at direct air into it and then we have a fan. That is taking the exhaust. So that's how the samples go in and so we're measuring data once every second on all this compression. It happened so that we send out small data packets losing nation but.

"You know we want to monitor everything thinks law value in the data and we also wanna help operators reduce their emissions profile every single one of their producing asset. So i'm curious in the h- how long have has been pushing the american market very recently. Actually like we've been very you know we're pretty small team funding's been tied into the canadian market We are in the process of migrating down. Here it's only been last couple months that we've started yes reaching so maybe you guys have. Maybe don't have any answer to this question you but i'm going to curious with you know in the canadian market. There's obviously the regulatory factors that actor into kind of pushing these kinds of ovation's these technologies to be needed and then on the the public side here in the states. Ucla the espn factors that so you know. Investors are kind of pushing that. I'm curious with save. Maybe private operators of maybe the same scale as of these public ones. If there's that same kind of internal feeling that we need to do something about this or or if not. It's kind of more of a cultural questioning klay. So i ran into the center near the other day. I was driving home from midland and we stopped at a hotel in san antonio the pool. Neurons this engineer for one of the more well known private independently owned companies out there. And he's talking about you know they're putting Vapor recovery units Going retrofitting all of their batteries. And i mean his comments were the right thing to do and economic forum And so i think that that question probably varies across different types of operators bill. It definitely see some that are doing. Yeah for sure. And i think it's a very growing sentiment like there's obviously the public sphere where you know the large majors are making these really big ambitious commitments. And that's you know they want to make it on those commandments. But what we've seen. A lot is actually like especially private equity back..

"You know being aware of different methods for sourcing. These parts has been great learning experience for us and yet we're also lucky in the sense that were were relatively small right now. We don't we're not billing hundred thousand or one hundred thousand orders yet. Yeah you know. It's it's said you guys are y'all assembling all of these in house to in design. That happen in calgary like he is just doing an office right now or do you have an actual like actually. Yeah like. Everything's designed and assembled in canada a lottery components come from different parts of the world. Obviously the the sambo is pretty all all the smarts in it is in the calibration sensor technology in all the inferences. Pretty deployable Once harbors locked legal pieces putting it together. Yeah we'd light from just a Cost perspective and efficiency perspective There are cheese to get them all semblance asia for example shush over. Murari he products. And we're also looking at we just ship every parts down to the us and assembled in the manufacturing texas. yeah yeah assemblies not not Not the difficult part but but yeah you want us. Things that we were proud of is like a lot of people that we've hired as much candidates. Well listen you regarding a team in the lot of them. Come from oil and gas backgrounds. In calgary a lot of people you know there's been quite a bit of the economic turmoil since two thousand fourteen. You know a lot of our team is from oil and gas engineers that we've been able to hire and train. And they're they they understand the problem because they would have been in customer. Alex and i bet you know they're working on something that they're passionate about and it's great to see so you know we're building technology. We're building solution but one of the funny things about my job is building a team in a culture around that yeah absolutely so one of the things that would help kind of me and probably listening understand. Better the position market would be. You've mentioned that you guys are going to be kind of like the more cost effective way for the operator so let's dive into a little bit like of the alternatives. Like if they're not going with you and you know why are some of these other methods more expensive. Yeah so. I think if you think about methane detection there's a couple of different scales to think of the couple. Simplest one is like there's a spatial scale so where you met measuring relative to the potentially so now this satellite companies aircraft drones. Oj cameras in fixed centers like arts and then with infix sensors recessionary sensors. There's a bunch of different ways that spatially and then there's the temporis which is tied to the spatial. How often can you measure so satellite if you're talking orbital satellite the measure every new rotation airplanes when we fly. Oj cameras whenever you send a crew out.

"Stringent. You know how do you develop a technology that is can meet the regulations today at a cost effective manner but can also meet future regulations tears Emission reduction targets and data to prove that down that. That's kind of what we you know. We're we're trying to design something that is cost effective today. But you don't have to go out to site. Replace it piece of hardware in order to meet future regulations. So that's kind of how we think about it And you enter the scale ability and go back to the hardware like we wanted us on one piece of hard work. We have fewer skews to manage products. Say when you're in the hardware game that's a challenge in itself just supply chain manufacturing and getting everything pushed now. There's not a day. That goes by where i don't get relevant. Some potential. they play. Yeah it was an interesting time with kovic start a harvard business ri- like oh yeah. Just talk about supply chains being wrecked. Yeah you know just we. We will give you an example the other day. We're we're preparing this deployment on houston or in midland's right and we're waiting on these batteries from china. I guess they've had an outbreak of the delta. Very near the factory yeah The customs officials who clear our package to lead. the factory. can't get into the building and therefore delaying us entirely cheese and things that you don't think about but you know from You know we kinda on our good days. We'd like to view problems. It's challenge starting har business in the middle of pandemic that is affecting all global supply chains From from the tesla's and the apples of you like every major auto manufacturers they're dealing with chip shortages and so little startup cube over here like you guys aren't gonna get bumped to the front lies parts. This episode is brought to you by liquid frameworks. You know we talk about all of this cutting edge technology every single week and it's crazy is that a lot of up's and office companies are still managing their field operations and excel and.

A lot of these production planning plans out an excel in you incomes as software cervical entertain. Alex i actually ended up working there. I was employee number. Twelve alex is number sixteen You know it was more of a consulting thing. But i've always been interested in the software side of things So made the move from operators. It's huge now. Yeah yeah. I mean it's kinda crazy. We actually alex. I met up with a couple of guys who are still in houston that you have worked at anderson since day one. But now is they've gone through series of private equity ownership mergers and let non you know from nepal employee number twelve to. I think they're over thousand. People with disguising armor is actually awesome to see. It's you reminisce about those days The good old days. We had a lot of fun. They're like alexander. Were down in. Houston or australia together. Help open up the office down there and did a lot of the ellen g work. Cbs was a big thing. Still now and then. Alex ended up going to houston with enter side. I had always wanted to go back to school at some point. I did my mba london and spent a couple years management. Consulting london later in seattle had always had entrepreneurial itch that i wanted to scratch Alex was working on this cube thing forbid And alex is here with us today. Below cedar microphone so he got yes and over to the side of the shuttle to alex. Alex is this is He's got a he's got the voice who radio for sure got the voice of the lobster.

"One hundred sites. All of them are leaking but two of them are leaking. The biggest youngest spend my time focusing repair these. We think from a regulatory standpoint as well especially in canada they recognize oil and gas companies have been had. These new regulations are additional cost. Burn they have these mandates reduce emissions but they also have a mandate of making oil and gas industry economic and so we can recognize both those forces in the market. And we wanna be able to say. Here's a technology solution that allows you to figure out where your biggest league so you get both you can reduce the emissions but also do it as capitol efficient as possible. So is the woman through. The actual leads deduction salmonella technically functions is the the cube itself the sensor or does sensors attach into the cube data transmission like little process. Yeah so the the hard words. So cuba's an intense solution so it starts at the harder piece that is what's actually sitting around Defense line of sight. So it's the box itself so within a box We've developed a sensor harbor platform. So there's all the power management communication module that's sitting on the motherboard and then on top of that there's this module rise gas unit so we have sauce for up to five years. And we're working on our next generation more room. Basically you can put in different gas sensors so a lot of our customers that our annual operating sour sights will put h to us to sensors on people that are operating. Your farmlands or voter issues will put a voc or censor on it. So that is what's actually detecting. And that's sending that continues monitoring data using lt or lt right now tour our service. So peace. And that's where we actually take all the gas readings along with meteorological so we measure temperature humidity wind speed wind direction. And then we create these models at look at okay if imagine a a plume of gas right And you have spot points so that you're measuring..

The past here is just getting this device in a in a very stable state in terms of its robustness from harder. Clint nothing none of the stuff that we're doing inferences or the dashboards is would be meaningless Actual data and So we've been working a lot on that and we've been to planned sorry for using metro guys. We'll have to help deploy this is. America is thrust of the minus forty six celsius which i think is pretty close minus forty something and then Recently candidates heatwave. It's been over one hundred degrees fahrenheit. So we're actually down here. Alex narrow down here with her fuel. Manager to deploy our first deployments midland. Which were super excited about you know. Nothing's girl problem in the. Us is just so much bigger and working with us. Customers awesome to like they're very technology forward. We see the us markets lesson like a regulatory push but more of like. Hey as we need to do this and we want to get in front of it and it's great for emissions reduction story. It's every mci gas Don't leave we can produce and sell but it also also a great surfer investing customers that are looking for possibly source gas. He brought up a great point with The producers here in america because everyone talks about gas leaks in producers and they're polluting atmosphere unlike. Look if these guys have an economic solution to capture that gas why would they wanna let their product go. They don't want to be able to sell that right And so that really. I mean you look at american producers one. They wanted to do the right thing. A lot of the willing gas companies. I've ever worked with doing me wrong. There's train go find a handful of crooked but most companies wanna do the right thing and they care about the environment and so they want to utilize technologies where they can detect methane leaks but then from the economic perspective is okay. they're letting product goto. So they wanna mitigate any lease. They have so that they can put that gas into the pipeline. Sell it absolutely. I mean I think it's very clear for us when we guys like this just to conserve the waste seems waste. Nobody wants to be wasteful their time of their capital city. Not the the resources that producing. I think you know. For our value propositions like we're doing continuous monitoring with we think ourselves most accurate. Low cost continues watering system out.

Its name qube from quick bites or video snacks of eight to twelve minutes ideal for riding the subway or bus or in newburgh or waiting in line unfortunately justice launch the nation shut shutdown with the corona virus and started binging seasons of long form content. So could be shut down six months later in october. Twenty twenty then. In january twenty twenty one roku announced it was acquiring quibbles content for its own growing roku channel and now brokers gonna make a huge chunk of that library thirty shows available may twentieth which roku celebrate to streaming day. That's the day it shipped its first streaming player back in two thousand eight back then. It was called the netflix player by roku because roku he don't know began as a part of netflix and then was spun out of the company. Now some folks have seen this content because qube has more had more than one million downloads tap when it launched initially but for most of this. This is going to be new stuff. One of the shows hashtag free. Ray sean has already won short-form creative arts emmy awards for stars laurence fishburne and jasmine separate jones. There's also show starring sophie.

Roger j we were just talking about a cas product that makes you ice cream and ninety seconds whenever you wanted and why roger never cries wider conversation join our expanded show. Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram. It's also heavier and thicker overall but it also now starts at five hundred forty nine dollars instead of one thousand dollars. That has a thirteen point. Three inch nineteen twenty by ten eight hundred sixteen nine. Lcd touchscreen with the dual core intel seller on five twenty five you upgradable to an intel core. I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers. I think that's pretty cool. I like that. They are bringing that in and i am interested because i do live in a household. That has very high ceilings. How this would work in that kind of environment. So yeah. I'm very interested in the audio aspect. Well you might also be interested in what colour has come out. Oh yes the folks who make things like toilets and and sinks and lots of appliances however. Been a real. Cas mainstay for the last few years for some cool innovations and this year is no different. Even though we're not in vegas koehler has a new smart bathtub called the stillness bath. That lets you use an app or use your voice using google or amazon's assistance to fill up the water or perhaps set the mood by changing the color of the lights around the tab or even add some fog. You know you wanna kind of pretend like you're in the then present routines also turn on features in a certain orders if you wanna get kind of creative. that's cool. Yeah the certain amount of limitations with the base model and the base model is not cheap so temperature and depth control models alone will cost around eight thousand six hundred ninety eight dollars. That's right it's almost nine thousand dollar bathtub. If you want the experience tower that lets you activate fog and aromatherapy. That will run you just over ten thousand dollars. Both models are available in july. There are real things and if you want the version with lights and floor grades for overflow fifteen thousand nine hundred ninety eight dollars available. This october signed me off. I won't be buying those. Nope not even a little bit but we could have taken a bath at s in the new in the pre show roger was like. Why would you want fog. It's like this. Why does anyone want to be on. Yeah racist luxury suites in hotels for sure as well as apple's houses sure yeah something well. Yeah it's it's that like hey look at what my bath can do people go. Wow very fancy and then you know ten years from now will be like remember when we thought it was fancied to talk to your bathtub so that it would start filling up without touching it but Yeah it's it's somewhat silly because of the price. But i'm not really much of a bath person but they do look very nice all right. Let's check out the mail bag but ads do it. Nick wrote in with a pronunciation. Ramps own neck. You are not alone he says. Ac's rog is an initial list. Because it's our og like fbi or cia. People say ron yet. They're lower end gaming brand tough not initially them. It's an acronym like scuba or produce you f but pronounced off. It's like ace's can't make up their name minds. Then there's strict which is our subbrand strikes as a word it's a completely nonsensical made up word. But it's a word and you pronounce it as such nick as honestly as somebody. That buys a lot of hardware. Because i've rarely had a bad experience with them over the past twenty years. I am baffled by some branding decisions. The one the bugs me. The most is the strict subbrand. Sometimes acis makes the tricks products. The high end product in the product stock yet other times. It's a mid range product. Would it be too much to ask for consistency and product. Branding twenty twenty one. Yes apparently apparently we feel your pain. Nick i love the dichter's just like i just need to vent you guys. Let me let me let me get this up. Just we appreciate that. Yeah i mean i. i'm with you nick.

Why Roku Wants Quibi's Content Catalog

Why Roku Wants Quibi's Content Catalog

"Last year qube became infamous as a well funded but short lived streaming service. It raised one point. Seven five billion dollars from high profile backers ben shutdown just six months after it launched now people familiar with the matter say the company is in advanced talks to sell its content catalog to roku the leading distributor of streaming services. Here to explain what's going on and how this news fits into a broader story about the streaming industry is our media reporter benjamin mullen. Hey ben thanks for joining me. Hey thanks for having me okay. So we should note that these talks are still going on and they could still fall apart. But i want to start by just understanding why a partnership could be strategic for both sides here. So let's start quickly. It's obviously now so what's in this. It makes sense for you to do this. Because the licenses to the content that was on their service is one of the most valuable things they still have. They have cash on hand that they're planning to pay back to their investors. And i guess the reason why they're doing this is because it's what they still have so it's one of the most valuable remaining assets and how is going to be handling. Its content more broadly. Now that it's shuttered. The company really put a lot of resources into its content big names. They recruited a lot of talent and the trip. Some really out of the box content ideas i imagine. They don't want all that to go to waste. So does that factor into these talks. Yeah they're still trying to figure it out. That's what these talks are about is all the producers who developed programming for qube they want their shows to be viewed by people because they put all this effort into him and qube wants to make money as much as they can from the library that they have and so buyers potentially want to exhibit these shows sell advertising sell subscriptions around them. So you can. You can see why it would make sense for all parties to get. Get to a deal here. Yeah and let's talk more about roku point of view. Why would this be strategic for them. Specifically roku has its own channel called appropriately the roku channel and they sell advertising on this channel and the advertising that they sell on the roku channel. The terms for the advertising deals are really really favorable to them so if they have more original content that they can put in the roku channel. They have a better case to make to advertisers and potentially more advertising revenue and of course their main role right now is as a distributor. That's the position they've been leveraging as they make deals with content producers as we've talked about on the show recently could up partnership with qube help roku convinced more streaming companies to make content available with roku. Well you could envision a situation where they tell. at which owns hbo. You should put your content on the roku channel because look at all this content. we have on their. We have exclusive content so this channels are really valuable. Place for you to be and you'll be alongside some other really good shows and one thing i have questions about. Quip was made specifically for mobile and it really prided itself on its so-called turnstile technology that changes the formatting of the shows depending on which way you're holding your phone but roku is primarily used on actual. So how would that partnership even work. That's a good question. I imagined that a lot of the content that'll be showed on the roku channel or roku if this deal would go through would be in the horizontal aspect ratio. Because most people's tv's are obviously oriented horizontally the vertical component of the shows. I'm not sure how that fits into a traditional roku. Apper your roku viewing device. Got it so questions yet to be answered here and just zooming out. What are these deal. Talks tell us about entertainment. And the strategy behind how content producers and content distributors are trying to navigate the fast changing world. I think what qualities demise showed. Everyone is that it's really a competitive place. There's a lot of streaming services that have launched even the last half year so and qube was obviously unsuccessful in navigating the competition so and roku has built success largely on the back of the growth of streaming because there are huge distributor so roku was accompanying that manage to really seize on the success of streaming and is captured an ever-growing part of that pie and qube. I think you can safely categorize them as a half of the streaming wars. You know they haven't been able to capitalize in the same way that roku has and in this case roku so it like the winners of the streaming moore's may end up absorbing the losers. Yeah yeah in this case. That definitely seems to be what happened all right. That's a reporter. Benjamin mullen ben. Thanks so much for joining me thanks. Amanda

How Quibi crashed and burned so quickly

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

Were about to get a big glimpse into Disney Pluss future

"Has been having a huge year and the company is poised hold investor meeting on thursday. To preview with the service will look like in twenty twenty one so joe. what are you expecting. Yeah we're gonna get pretty much the the layout of where disney plus goes from here. That could mean a number of things but surely it's going to mean that we get a better sense of what programming is going to be coming to disney. Plus next year as well as how i think disney is going to kind of officialize the role that disney plus plays only in the pandemic in these extraordinary circumstances but even after the pandemic when Things have whenever that may be when things go back to semi normal the role that streaming generally is gonna play four disney's entire operation. Everything that it touches on. That's a good because it seems like over this last year that they've been making some moves to really position busy plus as the core It's really the future for this company. Yeah you know. That's one of the kind of question marks that we're going to be answering not weather streaming is important disney because they've said that they're going to realign television programming infrastructure around the idea that streaming is the primary focus Disney of course. Everyone knows it for movies in the marvel movies and stars and for parks but it also owns. Abc broadcast network of course disney channels espn. So we know that streaming is going to become the central programming tenant of how it approaches the content that it creates but we don't know is whether disney plus is going to be there numero uno primary focus considering that they also have espn plus and hulu as other streaming services in addition to streaming service india. And so i think this event has also been answered. The questions do do they continue to have three services that operate separately in the us. Do they wrap them all into one. And have you know a giant. Do they make it into more closely net bundles. we really don't know how they're going to be. Approaching streaming given that they have three services and have said that stream is going to be such a high priority. Going forward gotten and this year saw the launch of peacock discovery plus. Hbo max and of course the dearly departed qube. How did how does he plus or stand above this crowded field because for me seem like it was one of the clear winners this year. Nobody came close to disney. Plus i mean no. That's not only in this past year when there have been when there's been such a frequency of new services launching like even any services launch before disney plus no service has had as explosive a rollout as ni plus has and. There's a lot of reasons for that. And we can get into it but really at this point disney plus it at about one year since its launch it hits seventy three million subscribers. Now that's still a far cry away from netflix. Which is you know head and shoulders way ahead of everybody. At almost two hundred million subscribers will ride but the things to keep in mind our disney got to seventy three million in one ear and they also did it when other services that have been rolling out. Got to maybe eight million got to In the case of Be did so poorly that they shuttered could be shuttered in like six months. Seven months It's not it's not like you show up and watch a streaming service and you're guaranteed to just you know attract wasps and parades of people. It's really hard to do but disney has compared to anybody else that's launched a new streaming service. It's done leagues better than any anybody any other. That has come before. Normally i mean a lot of that has to do with the mandalorian. The buzzer baby. Yoda starwood a general marble is. It's other big franchises. And we've yet to see any real real program yet. We will come january one vision in terms of this investor event. We can we expect to see more out of one vision as well. Some of these other big mar marvel products coming down the pike. Yeah i mean. We don't know exactly what they're going to be showing but you can expect that we're going to get some something about one of which is coming up on january fifteenth. It's going to be released on disney. Plus i'm sure they're gonna want to show off footage from that to get people excited about it. We might have questions answered about when the other marvel original series. These are the movies like these are the shows like one division that are tightly-knit within the marvel cinematic universe the same actors that play characters in the movies are playing those characters on the series. And we still don't know when the falcon and winter soldier show is going to be coming. We don't want no win. The low key shows coming. There's a hawkeye show coming. And then there's a whole slate that goes even beyond that that we don't have any details on so in terms of just specifically marvel. I'm sure we're going to get a lot of updates on that. Were the other big story in streaming last week. Was when hbo max came out and dropped the bomb said all its warnermedia films in twenty one films like suicide squad in dune will drop on the service. Same day as theorist It's endemic related. So they're extraordinary circumstance surrounded. What do you think that means the industry. And how do you think dizzy I think that disney probably already had a game plan in place about what they're gonna do for their gigantic big budget. Tentpole movies next year The question is whether or not they adapt that plan based on the fact that a week before what that plan was going to be announced this thursday no matter what and the question is one week before that event when hbo and warner brothers announced that not only will they be releasing all their all their movies next year on streaming also gonna make it free with no extra cost on each hbo. Max so you don't have to pay for example with disney plus the structure. They kind of set out that they might do. Is there milan. Release when the live action. Updates and milan couldn't really be released in theaters in the traditional blockbuster style way They released it on disney plus the same day that it wasn't theaters but they charged an extra thirty dollar fee in order to stream it so it was available what's known as day that's win streaming home video and theatrical release are at the same time it was available day and date but you had to pay a lot more money to get it what disney has said. And what did you see. Yo- hinted is that they've learned a lot from that milan release and they expect to give us. Give everyone an update. On what what. They called premier access. What that's gonna look like going forward. Will that mean that. They'll continue to stick with this thirty dollars. Price point will that mean that they've they're going to release only their biggest biggest biggest movies with an extra fee. Or are they gonna follow suit from. Hbo and just say hey. We're not gonna make you charge a fee at all. We're going to put it on disney plus for everyone to watch as soon as available. We just don't know exactly those details. But i'm sure we're going to get some clarity about what expect with all these movies. That people are really missing. That three dollar from along was announced stirred up a controversy. A lot of the gut reaction was. Why am i paying three dollars on top of this attraction fee. But they've actually talked about this. Maybe you know more. But we got an indication. Powell moulana actually did that was actually a blueprint for success or Dollar seated scare people. This i mean this question. Touches on one of the frustrating elements about movies like milan or like a marvel movie going to streaming. And that's you know we. It's a black box in a way it's not entirely blackbox. But it's not like when a movie is in theaters. Those box office reports. You know you can't fudge You can't lie about them and he can't keep them secret either like it's just like out there. People know if a movie tanked or movie was a smash success because it's we have those metrics but when something goes straight to streaming we don't know we don't really know except for what disney has told us and i haven't told us anything specific about how in london they've general things that tech companies from the tech world. They'd like to say like we're very pleased with the response and delighted customers and blah blah blah blah blah. But that doesn't really tell us what their expectations were and whether or not milan exceeded expectations or failed to reach them. Not any native nice for for this thursday event if they're tuning or they're looking forward to seeing a flood of trailers or sneak peeks into these upcoming shows any advice for them or or warning. These things tend to be more investor. Focus at what. what are you expecting. Or what can these folks expect. Yeah it'll definitely be. It's an investor day and if passed is any precedent than it'll be a very long presentation. Maybe not as long as i don't know we're used to apple presentations with gone for like what feels like four years so it's going to be a long presentation but there will be designed for an audience of analysts investors and press And so it's not meant to be a consumer events that said even though there will be an emphasis on things like projections for Subscriber growth and like you know what is it are words that like normal people don't care about at all this is disney like show business is their business and they know how to impress people.

Immortals Gaming Club Are Getting Out of the Esports Team Space

"Start with a big story. Is you know it's impossible to ignore big numbers. And i'll just give you the headlines of three stories. But they're all the same story. Basically i just i like the three headlines because they all tell a little bit different side of it. The first year was immortals club raises additional twenty six million dollars. The second year was from bloomberg says meg. Whitman backed firm to way sale of overwatch team again talking about immortals gaming club and then the third immortals gaming club raises twenty. Six million led by ex quickly. Exact meg whitman. So if you put all these three together you sort of have all the information. You need witches with immortals calling her ex quickly exact. I mean could she is that that has got to be the most subtle you tag career up until on his business like her. Oh the ebay right yeah. That's better than leading quickly. Wow you're only as good as your last gig. You're only as good as your last exum be. Feels like something. Like as a as a term. Like i would order an like an exotic restaurant like well. I will start with the vegetable three way. Medley have the x. Qube for my main interest rate and goes just leaving puzzled. Sometimes i am puzzled. William by how your brain works that brain that it's such a funny term. So so here's here's what we know from the just the three headlines. Immortals gaming is raising a raised twenty six million dollars. It's being led by meg whitman. Who used to be equipped he also ebay footmen footnote and they're looking to sell their overwatch team. Believe it or not so. They've already got rid of their like previously. Got rid of their Call of duty league team And now the overwatch league team. They're looking to to get rid of it and i'll just read. I'm going to present you all the information guys. And then you can discuss. But it says immortals gaming intends to focus less on city specific teams and more on businesses related to online gaming such as gamers club a subscription service in latin america which connects video game players. The company said last week. It's selling a team playing and activists call of duty league to one hundred thieves And now so. They've sold off their call of duty league team now. They're saying they want to sell their los angeles valley and overwatch team. In the meantime the raid they raised twenty. Six million led by meg whitman. What do you guys make this news. There's a lot of. there's a lot to unpack. You're right the amount. They've raised be That they're divesting of assets sort of as part of this razor almost next to it which you don't usually hear about You guys think jeff. Lindsay william whoever wants to start here. What do you guys think of of mortals gaming club. And the way they're going. Let me go last. I have some some hot takes. Let me last go first. Then let's let's open with some hot takes you're all my take on. This is a little is a little more nuanced. But i think what's really interesting about this announce those two things to read into this. One is a mortals has just not done well as in east sports work right. They haven't won anything. They haven't really built a differentiated brand. They've been blown. Apart in the lifestyle category versus other orbs about the best thing they did back in late two thousand eighteen by gamers club right and make a move into south american marquette. This reads like a real strategic shift into you know gaming services and service provision right. Because you don't. You don't sell off both gated franchises and in particular. You don't sell off call of duty called duties actually starting to perform now like it's unusual to sell that asset unless you are If you're still committed to really making the team piece work so i think an underscore here as immortals you know is going to be getting out of the team space. I think a second thing i would add to this though in the morrison is the fact that they are announcing looking for a sale of overwatch without the buyer. List william razi to me because that is a direct that first of all signals a little bit of urgency right like we're trying to get rid of this asset gimme buyers right because like to be honest with you like like you don't need for an asset like that you know you don't you don't really need to do this sort of thing right like you don't know who the people are who are in the market for this The the second thing is. I think this is like a forcing mechanism with activision blizzard. It seems like they want out of that league and announcing they're going to sell is a really good piece of lever to communicate activision blizzard. Hey it's not working right and also to kind of tip their hat about the seriousness of their frustrations with with that business right now. So that's my read on. This is the announcement of sale is a little tactical. It's partly strategically. They want to divest. And it's partly. They're trying to communicate something to activision blizzard because they didn't announce again these. These are sort of deals. Where like you read about in favor of like. Oh i too could go by that. You know what i mean. There's a limited set of groups and these guys ono each other right like you. Don't you're not going to be surprised by who's coming out by this org slot like it wasn't like come on hundred. Thieves did call of duty right. It wasn't like josie sports club.

"While you're on the go so the idea is that we've seen a number of podcasts. Actually have released in conjunction with some of the series that they have they had obviously the biggest one they probably did was the chernobyl one last year. But then they're also have had some podcasts for lovecraft country. They've had one. I think for raised by wolves. They're looking at expanding that even more so doing even more podcasts. For some of their original shows and the idea is that if the podcasts are on the hbo and you can actually listen to them. While you're on the go if you're driving and you hook up your phone to your car. You'll be able to listen to these podcasts. If you're on public transportation or however you're traveling you just pop in your headphones and you can eat instantaneously here. The podcast more people will maybe use the hbo max app on the go rather than having to only be able to use it while you're sitting in your living room watching the television and that's not to say that obviously people aren't using each max out on the go but this is kind of like the reverse of what qube was trying to accomplish queries intent. Was everybody on. The go would be watching this but not in every situation. Would you be able to stare at a screen israel. Max is trying to utilize the idea of how to use that time when you're not able to really absorb a visual medium. And how can you still connect with your subscribers in the podcasts are obviously a very important way of doing that. Some of the other things that came up in this interview there was a number of movies that have actually just released to the service back on november. First there was actually over one hundred and seventy five movies that landed on the service. You're specifically asked how in the world there was such a big influx of movies and his. His response was very interesting. Said it's a couple of things first. Time warner had license out many titles for multiple years prior to the acquisition. At and t. Or eddie more and more every month as the rights to those titles come free second. We've had particularly strong response in films. We have an unparalleled movie collection and haven't been loud enough about that. So we're trying to add more films as we go with specifically means that response. Is that the movies on. The service are doing extremely well whether it be the ones that are licensed for hbo. And that are available on each max or the parts of the library that they already have. That's existing. They've been having a lot of success with the films probably more so than some of the other services out there specifically when you look at netflix. Netflix does have movies. They have play movies that they license they have you know. Obviously they have a selection of films that they've done that their originals. They don't have the ability to have this massive library..

Quibi is Proof that Capitalism Works

"Six months after its launch, an April Qutb. The short video streaming service is being shut down due to a complete lack of interest. Company was started all the way back in. August of twenty eighteen by Jeffrey, Katzenberg and Meg Whitman. The raised one point seven, five billion dollars, and then proceeded to like that money on fire. Where do you want to begin with this because? I had and we were chatting a little bit about this yesterday is that capitalism works? Like among other things, this is an example of capitalism working. The built this thing they spent a lot of money to do it. They put it out there and everyone collectively said No. I mean you're absolutely right. This is a great example of capitalism working And there are a lot of different ways to go with this in. I don't want to make light of the fact that people are losing their jobs from this though I will say that Even even for the most glass half full person. Jumping on board with this with this. Entity had the probably feel like chances were were chances of success. We're going to be lower than fifty percent I would have assumed but I mean, it seemed like it was a little bit bit obvious to all of us in the analyst community. But I, it was amazing to me like there was read in one of the articles that during a video call. With. With employee's Katzenberg actually suggested. Staffers listened to the song get back up again from from the trolls film to buoy their spirits. Like, he's still talking book. He's ready to lay people off is what it sounded like. It was very odd. I just feel like. It it it just didn't seem to me to be empathetic is probably could have been but. I mean, we talked about this a few shows ago right a few weeks back where it just I don I don't think anyone including Jeffrey really knew what Qube was supposed to be I mean is social as it streaming is social streaming i. mean there were already all sorts of competitors out there in that space to some extent in. So you know you sometimes when in-investing, like we say sometimes investing, you just got to be able to call call the mistake admitted move on as opposed to just keep on burning money in. It sounds like in this case I mean they burn through their capital and that was basically that and I think the writing is on the wall. It sounded like a lot of Hollywood was doubtful to begin with interestingly enough. They didn't have any problem selling content there like eight. Sure. We'll sell it but we don't think you're GONNA succeed. So. It's listen when you jump into a crowded space like this in in video streaming a crowded space obviously, you need to differentiate yourself right you need to innovate do something different and and it just didn't seem like they did that like at all in. Speaking of Seinfeld that reminded me of that reservations episode of it all comes back to Seinfeld Chris like you know how you say you know how to like get in their differentiator or innovate, but but you don't actually know how to do it. Right saying it doesn't mean that you're doing it and it didn't feel like they. Really. had come to that realization until way too late. So. One of the thoughts I've had about all this is. I feel like we need to come up with a new word to replace the Word Unicorn as it is used in the world of investing and for those unfamiliar. A Unicorn is a private company that. Reaches a private market valuation of a Billion Dollars and. I was thinking about something Emily flippant set on this show a few weeks back where. She was she made the comment like the world is only getting bigger. We're only going to have more. Companies with trillion. Dollar. MARKET CAPS in the future not fewer and so as things continue but I think I. Think we need to come up with a different because you know that was part of it. It's like Oh look at this company they've raised nearly two billion dollars. You know what would this be worth in the open market? Well, it turns out zero. So, look at I look at some of these capital raises with some of these businesses. It's astounding the money that some of these businesses raise and it's just. It's Just astounding I mean like it's it's breathtaking like you said, I mean look at. Robin. Hood for example with all of the trouble and issues that they continue to have like I don't know why anybody who's getting started investing today why would you use Robin because every other platform could basically match what they're doing for the most part and it's going to be a more robust and frankly trustworthy platform and yet this business continues to raise billions and billions of dollars it's garnered some like Ten. Billion Plus Market Valuation now, which to me seems really serve but it. It just goes to show. There are some very deep pockets when it comes to when it comes to. These, these these interests in know investors who aren't necessarily participating the public markets and. I think the thing is in most cases it's really all about it's all about hitting a couple of really you know it's about hitting a couple of home runs as opposed to try to get like sixty percent of your picks. Right I think most people know they're not going to be getting sixty percent of those picks right? It's really just about finding a couple of grand slams. The can make a big impact. Yeah. I mean a Unicorn is an incredibly rare creature and private market valuations of a billion dollars are becoming increasingly less rare. I'll tell you what is really a Unicorn is something like qube something that from day one we all sort of looked at and we're like I don't think that's going to work and then every step along the way like, yeah it's still working the launch isn't going well, they're burning like Oh my God they're they're exploring strategic alternatives up their dead. Every I can't think of another time when. There was a bit like. maybe, pets.com early like back in the day but. It feels like. They're always going to be those examples and I mean it's it's it's that's just so fun. That's why this job is so fun because we get to see this stuff every day I mean the market at the end of the day we said it is it's just like a really big to just disagreement right and I, mean both parties think they're right for whatever reasons and You have to figure out a way to reconcile that and choose the side. I think we chose ours on

Quibi is shutting down just months after launching

"The Mobile Streaming Platform Qube is shutting down. It launched barely six months ago but it struggled to find its footing. It did not pick up many monthly subscribers despite getting nearly two billion dollars in major Hollywood investments and having star-studded content from people like Chrissy Teigen and Liam. Hemsworth why it failed though is up for debate, qube blames the pandemic since the platform was meant to be watched on the go on your phone shows. How just? Five to ten minute episodes but fewer people are out and about sitting in waiting rooms or commuting on public transit right now. So quickly says it's business model is just no longer viable though critics argue it would never have worked since consumers already have other free options for short-term video like Youtube either way the company will look to find buyers for its original content in the coming months. So maybe you'll get to see the shows after all.

"So how do you raise almost two billion dollars a billion and three quarters and blow through it in something less than a year I personally have no idea but Jeffrey Katzenberg sure does the Wall Street Journal reports this afternoon the Katzenberg, one of the founders of the much touted and once promising entertainment platform Qube for quick. Bites, real short bits of content mobile, first Katzenberg shutting it down. So for the second day in a row, molly would is here with our lead story. Hey, Ma. Hey hello again hello. Yes. So. What happened with BE? Yeah Qube. You have to give Jeffrey Katzenberg. Meg Whitman Credit Qube was consistent all along. This is a company that said we are about mobile content. You are going to watch everything on your phone. We're about it being short and we're about this specific technology that makes it cooler to watch on your phone. That's it. No compromises and unfortunately. They. Had the double whammy of miscalculating I think how much people wanted to do that and more importantly how much they wanted to pay to do that. And arriving in the middle of a pandemic where all of a sudden people were at home with their big huge screens instead of in the grocery store on their phones right We're you surprised I mean you and I've talked about this on, make me smart but we use the prize because they had Katzenberg. They had whitman. They had. Janice. Min, at one point I mean this was a it was a stack cast here as it were. It really was, and yet it is one of those weird wisdom of the crowds thing where almost everybody was skeptical of qube almost everybody felt like feels like a little too much money and a bet that is not entirely proven what I'm surprised about is that after six months qube is going to disappear I mean you don't hear about that very often they must have really not made a lot of friends in Hollywood to actually just. Go away any. Lessons learned. Was it just an idea before its time and it's coming eventually and let's hang out and wait for it or what? You know I think the lesson is twofold one. You cannot prescribe what people want to do in the way they want to consume like sometimes you really do have to follow a market and also content is king yet can't watch streaming service without a library of content, a deep bench, and you can't be mediocre. I mean, the the content you know the T. V. making landscape right now is operating at as high a level as it ever has right and a lot of the content reviews for what was on Qube, were. You know right some things were good. Some things were terrible. Things were just okay and that is not enough in a billion and three quarters dollars later it is reportedly a done deal molly would she's the host of marketplace tech also with me podcast, we do call make me smart molly. Thanks a lot. See you later maybe more of who knows.

Movie Theater Stocks Have Two Problems

"Movie Theater Stocks Are Getting hammered today a sinner world group, which is the second largest theater chain in the world. Announced it is closing its theaters in the US and in the UK here in the US, it's regal cinemas in the UK. It's a world. So all told we're talking about more than six, hundred, fifty theaters roughly forty, five thousand employees who are going to be out of a job and the stock is down. Forty percent and. In sympathy I guess you could say shares of AMC, which is the largest movie theater chain. Down ten percents, cinemark down fifteen percent. We've seen sort of this drip drip drip of tentpole movies having their release date pushback. The latest James Bond movie which was supposed to come out this past April got pushed. November, and over the weekend was announced, it's getting pushed him next April and it's among other things Jason It is a reminder. Of how those big action tentpole movies Drive this business. Oh yeah, and I mean it's not just the theaters that are really feeling the pain today to write its. Properties which is A read that focuses on the entertainment arena in in general, but they have a lot of exposure to to movie theaters and in certainly a APR's feeling a little bit of that painted as well. Given given what we know. Is playing out in the movie theaters and you know when you look at cinema world, I mean. Into kind of the first thing. The first thing that made me think of it's kind of like kind of like Pluto, and Pluto was downgraded from planetary status like sin world is more like a Dwarf Planet. Now, like this isn't this isn't a world anymore this is really a company that's just struggling to figure out how to survive at this point because they've got to problems. They've. Got, two really big problems they got a supply problem and the demand problem and like noted with with the the actual releases having the content to get in those theaters. That's one problem. But then the other problem, obviously, the health concerns regarding the pandemic people just don't want to go sit in movie theater like like we used to and and so all of this is playing out. On these theaters big and small, and and when you you look at the cinema world's financials I mean they are facing the same problems as everyone else missing revenue falling off a cliff. They've got a slug of debt on the balance sheet eight and a half billion dollars and a half of that lease liabilities. But that speaks to the to the weight that that that those theaters can conserve right that drag that they can serve when when they're not being used in a theater is just like a restaurant is just like a retail store they're all of these high fixed costs in keeping those theatres open paying for those leases keeping them staffed and open. In. So you need traffic to go through them the more traffic that goes through the more profitable they become and that's great and good times. But in bad times as we're seeing now, just profitability just vanishes in I think the trouble. The. Trouble that they're facing. Is that you know when you start looking forward and try to figure out exactly how people are going to be feeling about going to the movie theater when all of this stuff passes over, I mean when when we finally turned the corner and in the concerns For Health aren't aren't the same as the are today are people. GonNa want to go back to the movie theaters like they did before I mean some will no doubt. But for all of the time that passes while we're not going to those movie theaters, all of the time that those theaters are suffering other forms of entertainment are are gaining right other. Forms of entertainment are becoming more and more an option, a nice substitute for folks whatever that may be You know all the way down to new ways of of catching movies, and so we're seeing we're seeing distributors figuring out new ways to get movies out there. We're seeing consumers figuring out new ways to actually watch movies and all of a sudden. A year from now and I mentioned this on on twitter earlier today all of a sudden you really have to be of that good enough risk in that like hey, you know what? It's not the movie theater but I'm sitting at home. I'm eating the pizza I'm watching a new movie that that's good enough for me and I'm okay with that I don't need to get my car go to a movie theater in. So all the more time that passes I think the more difficult it becomes for these theaters to really. Get back to where they once were in. Under. Unfortunately it feels like you know we're we're going to be dealing with this certainly for the rest of this year I mean granted only a couple of months left really few months left but I mean, you know going into twenty twenty one. I mean what does this look like when April or May comes around I don't know we don't know enough yet. But but when you look at central world itself I mean it's really silly United States seventy, five percent of their revenue comes from here. So what's going on here really matters to this business and right now it's just not looking good. Yeah and one of the thoughts I had when I was reading through this stuff this morning was. member. When Warren Buffett bought the Omaha World Herald. There was just sort of this sense. Like. For someone who is so rational in his investing it kind of seemed like he let nostalgia. Get the better of him and you know what he can do, whatever he wants his money although he did sell it. Earlier this year. But. It reminded me of that and I just thought I think there is a possibility where. Some, very wealthy person at some point in the next year or two just maybe not to by. AMC Holdings whole cloth but I wouldn't surprise me if someone was just like not now I love movies and I want this to survive and if it's if it's break, even that's all I care about but but other than other than. Sort of a very rich angel coming in given everything you just laid out with the business I mean. I like how you put it I mean. It's not just a demand. It's not just a supply and demand problem while I mean, Hey, listen apparently Jeffrey Katzenberg get some pretty deep pockets. I mean Chris are you thinking what I'm thinking Quigley theaters let me just rolls right off the tongue doesn't it qube theaters? Hey, it's a possibility. Anything. Positive.

I know I'M GONNA play. Right here. Some. Only. Ask. For. Them. Go to your home. took. Attitude there, what is the? Rapping with that attitude. I do a lot of attitude it really comes out when I'm in the studio I, think like I think like ever since I heard Janet Jackson's album in the eighties. I was like I was like I will be in that studio one day and like I've been preparing for this my whole life you know so I was just like ready I had all that built up attitude just ready to like unleash in the studio when you say Janet Jackson I'm just going through like pleasure principle I'm going through all of the songs. Nations and they. Can go on and on. Yeah. So good. So the character Nikki fresh explained to those who Nikki fresh is to you in this qube series. So. Nicky fresh is my alter ego I discovered her in my garden I have been growing and I've been having an edible garden for the past six or seven years and I started putting all of my posting all of my harvests on instagram because that's what Oprah did. So I was like I do also and after my like third like I was like, Oh, it feels like I need a stage name. So I named Myself Nikki fresh. and. You know I thought that it also. Lent itself, lent the name lent itself well to music. But I also really wanted to share with the world and to the masses how like amazing and cool and exciting and spiritual gardening is and so I decided to have Nikki fresh put out a parent trap album. Now, it can't be trap music because I have too much respect for the genre. So I created my own genre which is. Yeah I like that after three likes it's time it's time to really take it to the next one hundred I should have done it after two to be honest. Very Fun though to play that role with that kind of sarcasm, isn't it? It was it was so much fun. It was fun and we got to shoot I did so I did the episodes and then at the end of each episode I, play the song but I also get to do a music video again, bringing it back to Janet the moment rhythm nation came out I was like I cannot wait to star in my own music video so like making six of them was like something I never thought in a million years whatever happened. You gotTA check it out. Be there for it Nikki. Fresh Nicole Richie unearthed the album out now. They keep precious on qube great to see you and hello to the whole family there. Okay.

"qube" Discussed on The Streaming Wars

"A position where they would trying to get out of the game. So we've talked about this before what is the future? Of qube because if it doesn't take off and it doesn't seem like it has been taken off I, mean they've had some shows that have had some success and to be fair they actually did win a couple of emmys which we'll talk about later on. But the big thing here is what is there to even by equity because honestly there they don't have any rights to any of the shows that are airing on could be the production companies that are developing them and. Producing them. They're the ones who still owned the rights. So in other words, a show that you know garnered a second season Qube punked is going to get a second season but they'll show rights are owned by the original readers of the show, which would be MTV SLASH VIACOM CBS because they're all part of that same corporate umbrella. There's other shows on there to even the movies themselves are not being there are not owned by it. So Free Ray Sean or the most. Dangerous game. These aren't even owned by Qube Qube, none of their content they have no library to go. You know to get absorbed into another service nothing. All they have is the potential technology and the potential ad sales they have lined up or the future of the camp. I can't see a situation where they're going to get a lot of money. There's the report said that they have about two hundred, million dollars on hand, but they're looking at potential options of either raising. Additional cash or merging with an acquisition company so that they could specifically position themselves in a better spot. Personally I think it's a crap shoot and who is going to be gone in a year because this seems like it's just another footnote in the short history of Qube I I.

And the problem is people already have established habits for filling that void we read, and then we listened to our Walkman and we had social media. It's always it's never been like Marquette people have needed to fill. Feel I. was filled with reading or listen to your Walkman or social media. is filled with something and I suppose the makers of could thought why not us, but not you though. Thing the. So, social media is the main thing used here Tiktok is really good at this because it encourages, creators connect with viewers like Youtube, and so there's not unto city market going on there where you feel like you're friends with whoever's making the stuff but also the short link video limits reduce the commitment to viewer feels. So the result is popular time killing entertainment also take talk his terrifying and unethical, but. I've been watching LGBT tiktok means on instagram a lot and they're very funny, so you know ethics none here. People took to watch. Youtube during an active activity, the way People Watch TV I actually wrote watched past tense and my. Because no one I know watches TV. On TV. Folks eat lunch or fold clothes or do other monotonous work. One of the cool gimmicks of Qube is that you can either watch your movie divided into like sixty eight minute bits. vertically or horizontally people on the Internet have making have been making fun of people who are for filming vertical video for actual years. Nobody likes vertical. One and horizontal is an option except also verticals the norm right talks are all vertical. Yeah, but that's designed into the platform. quickey offers both okay edge terrible. Pleased to. Would prefer. It's. Why would you be holding your phone upright in in any circumstance? If you were going to settle down to watch something on your phone, it's not at. All the time just out of like it, I forget I. Don't I understand why they said their main market was middle aged women. 'CAUSE y'all are, unique. Otherwise that could be shot itself in the foot. The advertising budget all went into like billboards and physical displays. Quite a bit on twitter I see a lot of. Her, and then they did make were incomprehensively bad, so a lot of the budget went into like physical advertising that nobody and a young age group is going to see because we don't go outside, and then the rest is like really irritating incomprehensible youtube. I've actually barely Be Ads and I've seen people complaining about them, so there are people who complain about them, and there are people who don't get them like I'm not sure how many people have jumped on board. Additionally, people were actively prevented from sharing clips of their content online. Is the main way to get people into your new show. And also they loaded everything with like a-list stars, but failed to make anything that's super, talked about or acclaimed The only things I looked before this episode I looked up qube just on twitter to see what people were talking about and it wasn't Qube for. We're not talking about quickly. But those who were we're talking about a show that was a revival of a previous show, and this one documented and like I. Don't know anything else about what's on Qube. Besides Sasha velours documentary series. We stand. And then like the really bad weird ones. everybody wanted copy to fail. and everybody knew it would fail. Has It failed failed though Jalan get. Straight. Advertise what had to do is tied to restructure pretty much. Its entire business model it now you can cast it onto your TV and I'm sure that more and more of the gimmicks are going to follow away as it tries to save itself. Like on the one hand.

I'm in my office in L. A. and La Los Angeles and Are you in La as well? I'm also La just hanging out me and my dogs this morning. Kevin and I'm not in the basement in Jersey but I am in Jersey. You're in my state. Come on over. We'll distance sounds good. So here's here's something I find fascinating about you guys ever since you decided to come back and give this another world. You've been nonstop. I mean I don't it from our perspective. It seems like you never stop. It's like every day. You have a new announcement there. A new announcement tomorrow. I mean but because of the way we're living our lives these days. I'm assuming you're almost forced to slow down a little bit. Aren't you or. You're still chugging away just as fast as always it's been surprisingly busy. I mean on on top of Releasing Xm Five more minutes today and kind of the gear up for that We all stay pretty busy with their own own. Things I've been doing. The voice live shows remote from home which has been very unique. And you know had to sort of spend most of my my time outside of brothers stuff doing that. Kevin's been you know. Homeschooling is kids. And yes. That's the only new thing and then going. How's that working for you It's good. I just can't believe in kindergarten. They're doing like like light Algebra like I. Just don't get it. You know like she's like I was just helping her ready for this call with some of her schoolwork and she's like Dad. I have to solve for x and you help me figure out which one this is came today. That's the sole for ex- ex- exactly nice. I feel like we all think we're smart until it's time to help your children with homework and like wait a second. I'M REALLY NOT THAT SMART. Exactly was this is kindergarten. So I'm really concerned about what the future holds. This is why I stopped at a Schnauzer. Brilliant as is GonNa be in my house Schnauzer. He speaks German and Joe. I was watching a cup of Joe on Qube. That looks like a dry. A dream job to me being able to these these cities. You've always been too but you never got to see them now. You get to explore them with interesting people exactly a for years we would travel and go to these different cities and we'd see the hotel or just the venues we started going. Stir crazy thinking what would it be like if I had a six hours to explore with interesting people and we really tried to get some interesting talented to join us and then Matthew mcconnahey was was number one he started us off so I was like well? You set the bar. I once I ran out of gas. I used Kevin Neck which was great. I'll convenience being show convene you WANNA come so so being being musicians which is part of what you are being How does this all change for you? You're still making music but it's all I'm assuming it. The rules are thrown out the door. I mean it's a whole new way of of existing and creating right definitely definitely different. Get all go ahead. This is the hardest part about these calls. You never know. Speak kind of adapting to what this life is like for all of us right now. I'm making the most of it. Obviously music keeps US motivated and inspired so we tried to have little recording writing setups in in individual spaces. So I've been able to do songwriting from afar. And sometimes you go. Why haven't we done this all this time? Bagley you'll have our space but I think it's it's going to be really exciting. We can get a in a room with a bunch of people again and Wrightson songs right now. Have you seen each other in masks yet because I find that? It's the most bizarre thing to see a loved one in a mask who the nothing your naked. I? We haven't actually I have. I've seen Kevin on his way. You know he's running errands and we've facetime. We're both mass together. So it's just a bizarre world we're living in But at the same time when you're still producing music you're still doing the things you love. You'd have to do differently but you you. You make sacrifices in you come out with like what we're doing today so you decided to release what we call it a bundle it's called X. or fire go. No because there's there's an ex and there's five more minutes so well. Today's the fifteenth. So we thought we'd get creative. Okay tricking we've asked him. I didn't even put the two together. So I'm with YOU ELVIS. Good so we're GONNA play X or five minutes or so. I play both. What should we do? Here I've been played both say yes probably the time we've ever released time top five okay. We'll do it. I'M GONNA blame now in that order accident in five minutes in next time. Let's get together in the same room. Let's say some better timing. What are you do? I think this is great. I love the fact that I can be in my basement and talk to the Jonas brothers. Oh by the way announcement I dunno I think Kevin knows but I have three huge Koi in my house and Santa Fe and there yesterday enjoy Jonas brother a scavenger now and they have they have little fish now. They're they're they're having families. How Kevin Kevin in Nick? Fish all did each other well. I don't know I don't know how to tell left tail and how it works but it congratulates the three of you.
