If You Used FaceApp, Do Russians Now Own All of Your Photographs?

"So <hes> do you use that face APP I was I was kind of amazed at the reaction to this APP which has been viral went several times before came out a few years ago face APP of you. I'll tell you maybe you don't know about it but the young's do and <hes> I think a lot of the <hes> <hes> <hes> olds due to <hes>. It's kind of fun because you could take a picture of yourself do a little selfie and then modify it in various ways. You've probably seen the results of it. People are posting posting a picture themselves as an old person. Mine is actually terrifying. 'cause I'm already kind of old and then it really makes you old. If you're younger doesn't make you quite sold. It's it's interesting artificial intelligence at work. It can also put makeup on you. Switch genders do all sorts of fun stuff but there was a furore an outcry even Senator Chuck Schumer the <hes> the Senate Minority Leader tweeted don't use this the Democratic National Committee told Twenty Twenty candidates don't use is it's from Russia. It's from Russia. That's not strictly true. It's by a Russian Fella. Ah who actually worked at Microsoft for many years and he got the idea for face APP he was working in Redmond Washington you might have heard of little state up there in the North West. He launched his <hes> when he was at Microsoft in January twenty seventeen yeah it's been around for two years. I remember playing with the company's founder Yellow Goncharov. <hes> is probably a little surprised at this point now yes he's rushing and I think he's in Russia now the company that makes it as a Russian company so now you know how sensitive we are about Russia these days so the the the fear is even says when you use the APP when you take a picture of yourself it is then uploading it to face apps servers now. They're pointing out that the servers actually aren't in Russia there <hes> Amazon web services and Google cloud which is what most apps you so but then there's also this issue in the terms of use the the people read this and they said you grant face APP.

SpaceX Starlink Launch Delayed

"The questions is usually asked about SpaceX and Starlink is do they have money to do this, because, you know, they have the government contracts. They send things to the international space station for NASA. They sent upset lights for commercial purposes. Now, this is a whole new business opportunity for SpaceX, and they're going to use this business opportunity. The Starlink to make money so they can send their starship tomorrow's. But do they have the? Money to actually send these satellites, all the satellites to cover the earth. In the answer is yes. Funding rounds have been over subscribed for SpaceX and recent rounds had more interest than what they were seeking. So they have enough money to do this whole project, and it's going to be difficult. The I sixty satellites, there's probably gonna be some issues going on this the first time they've done it. So they're not sure how they're gonna work, but they have sixty of them if some of them failed that's fine space. Exploration said late deployment is difficult. It doing sixty satellites in one launch, that is a big order to fulfill, but they're going to be doing two different mechanisms to try to deploy the solar arrays on these satellites in the great thing about that is that they can get data from it, but I have a whole new data set to work with about the deployment of the solar arrays if one way works. That's great. If nother w-. Way doesn't work, then they can just shelve it or fix it, you know. So they're going to use this data that they get from this launch to make the next launch in the launch after that in the launch after that, etc. Make those more functional. So I already said they had funding. Right. They already have money coming in from investors. Now, do they have any customers signed up not yet? They don't have any customers signed up because they don't actually have a product yet, but SpaceX is talking to a possible strategic partners such as telecommunications companies who have a problem getting internet to their rural customers. So does this mean that if you're a rural customer will you have to go through your local telecommunications company or will you be able to go directly through Starlink and the answer is we're not quite sure yet, they're still talking to those telecommunications companies and working out deals and somebody asked will the said lights on this. Launched the launched its tonight scheduled for ten at ten thirty PM eastern. Will it be part of the operational, constellation startling said, lights made it Redmond Washington facility and this initial constellation will not have interconnected links. They will ground bounce off of a gateway to relate to another satellite. That's what he on musk said, and there's going to be about a thousand star links that will be launched each year. At least that's what Elon Musk said, and they're going to be launched on falcon rockets, but the starship will likely become a launch for Starlink at some point in the future. So the same ship, that's going to go to Mars is going to be sending said, lights into earth, orbit and each one of these satellites, the launch of the satellites, it costs more to mosh them than it does to make them. And that's even on the falcon nine which is reusable but starship would decrease the launch costs by at least a factor of five and in about five years, these said lights will become redundant in, they'll be replaced with the next generation of satellites. And what happens when these satellites, get decommissioned, they fall back to earth while they disintegrate you know, they, they burn up on the way back to earth. No one's gonna get Harvey satellites are not gonna plunge into somebody's home or anything like that. Everyone is safe. And Ilan was ask. Asked if they would watch satellites internet satellites for competitors. He Lund said. Yeah, we're happy to launch any said lights. It's always good to have competition. There will be at least one other internet, satellite constellation, which is the best thing for the consumer. So tonight may sixteenth at ten thirty pm the I sixty Starlink satellites will be launched by fell can rocket into orbit.

"So you're talking about XP windows, XP windows XP. Alright so windows XP was one of those things that got widespread adoption, particularly in in the business world, what was such an improvement on his predecessor windows two thousand. Yeah. And yeah, I mean, it's it's a it's a functional system. You know, let's face it. You know, taking everything aside if you you put all the operating systems together on a table X P is a great operating system. Yeah. I it's in general. It's pretty stable. There's a workhorse workhorse, so many companies have standard on X P standardized on X P that they're they're comfortable with it. And that I think is the reason it stuck around is really the corporate world, you know, I I used to work for a company that would stay one generation of windows back from what the cutting edge was because everything was stable. They got it where it was working at thousands of people to support and they wanted to make sure all service packs where out before they would update to the next. Operatings? And yeah, if you had if you have foulland's of employees for your company, then you want you want something that's going to be stable because if you start having fail. Here's you're going to spend more time. Yes. Responding to two problems than you can't doing business, and that's just not a very smart way of doing things. So staying with a tried and true system makes sense, this is somewhat complicated. By the fact, that even though we're at windows seven, so that we're two generations beyond windows. XP now windows vista has a stigma on it about being an undependable over inflated difficult to use operating system. Now, some of the problems that vista had early on were addressed by Microsoft. Yes, you know. So it's it's a different system than it was when it debuted. But that being said that I was so negative that a lot of companies just that was that's where they drew the line said, we are not going to windows vista because it's just too many too many problems beyond that though a related. A related term to this outdated. Technology idea is the legacy system. Right. So a legacy system is a is any kind of system. It doesn't have to be technology. But in technology, what we're talking about is some sort of system that is a core component of the way of business does business and you want to keep that core component going and replacing it would mean having to to to. Well, reinvent an enormous amount of your business. So let's say you've got some sort of computer program that is instrumental to what you do. And it runs perfectly on windows XP. That's the that's the foundation that it was built for right? So then when the new operating systems come out, they may not support that legacy system. So you are forced to stay with an older operating system or else. You can't do business. Right. So that's one reason why a lot of companies are still on windows XP. They have some sort of program software application that runs on X P and will not run on anything else in order for them to be able to run on something else. They'd have to pour so many resources into building a new tool that does the same thing that they're old tool which is still working perfectly fine for what they need. It. Just doesn't make sense right now that much time money and effort, you can say, well, we could put that toward this. And then update all our systems, and then hope everything works or. We could stick with what we have had just concentrate doing business. And you know, if you if you have windows seven at home and X P at work, you may be frustrated by this. But that you're not really the the the person that has the most frustrated the people who are most frustrated by this are the ones working in Redmond Washington. Yes. Microsoft who have been trying to convince both the casual user and the corporate user to switch over to windows, seven windows, XP just works. Yeah. They they now Microsoft has stopped supporting it, and they're they've they've basically said, look, we're not gonna do anything for you..

"Five or six eighty six hundred. But this is the time we take out of the show to address questions that you might have in questions from you. This week's question comes from Redmond Washington, they asked when is a good time to draw social security. All right. Well, that's a great question. There's a lot going on there with should or wench jostle security social security is one of those wonderful investments. That unfortunately, have so many people leaving thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars on the table. So listen up because this is huge, first and foremost, the popular statement a lot of people are saying is one of two things. The first one is well social security's going away on the drought at sixty two. Okay. Well, I wanna get political here. But let's let's just assume because politicians are involved with this. And it's it's there it's part of our government. Maybe they'll figure it out. But let's assume that social security is going to stay intact in some way, shape or form for the remainder, at least of your retirement. So with that alchemy political and leaving that on the stage here sixty might not always be the best unless you have health issues expected die at an earlier age. The blanket statement answer would be you're gonna get more at filing for seventy every single time. The problem with that is social security is if it's set as a standalone investment, you're losing out other options. Trinity. What do I mean by that? There's a lot of other aspects and assets in your social security in your retirement plan, such as if you have a real estate portfolio if you have a pension did you take the pension or did you do a lump sum pension? Are you doin' income from assets with all those other factors? How are you? Optimizing social security with those other assets, essentially, they drawing income from. Here's here's a couple of just open thoughts for you to consider when it comes to social security. First one is how long are you gonna live? Once you have that. Then you're saying, okay. Are you single are? You divorced. Are you have you been single your whole life? Are you married at that point? Then you can start to play each other off of what's going on here. Now divorces an unfortunate situation, but a divorce e has a great situation because they typically are able to take either their social security or their spouses, which everyone's higher assuming they haven't read. Married. There's a lot of variables in there though. So I can't give you a blanket statement on that you'll need to do more research on an individual case. Or in a moment. I'll be exciting offer about social security, and you can talk to me on one on one basis if you're single really easy. How long do you think you're gonna live, and then we can start to optimize it from there? And then the next part is if you are married there's five hundred plus ways, you can file social security if you're married typically you want to both be earning as much income as possible. And then once bow dies than the other one will take these are some basic things about social security, but the big point I want to make here is when are you going to retire? And when are you gonna draw social security, here's what I mean by that one? Are you gonna retire? If you're gonna retire at sixty years old, and you wanna take your social security at seventy you have ten years, you have to draw income from assets, and your dwindling your portfolio that could be earning more than social security. That's huge. Also social security doesn't do well for inheritance because it doesn't pass heritage. It's just an income stream. But when you talk about your assets, those do transfer assuming you set it up, right? And we're not in probate, and we'll talk more about that later in the show with big fails that happen retirement. So there's a happy medium medium in between when you jostle security between sixty to seventy if you're by yourself, or if you're with your spouse, and then pair that with your income streams, and then pair that with your assets, these are mathematical formulas that you need to be able to address to be able to properly understand how and went to jostle security so blanket statement, what are you gonna retire? When are you going to need income? What are you gonna draw social security if it's a big gap more than five years, you're gonna wanna consider doing it somewhere in the middle? But if you're gonna retire Andros will skin same time. Might not be that bad as long as that's your full.
