"Some interesting new direction there. We'll have to see. I don't think that's going to be the biggest aspect of these machines. Though i think the biggest part of this can be basic blocking tackling. How much performance. You're going to get out of it. How much battery life. You're going to get out of it than that edge. Lastly any other wild cards you expect from this event. Oh well there could be any number of interesting things. i think. Apple's probably mostly gonna focus on these max and they're gonna wanna keep it clean and simple and focus. I'm not expecting things to be coming out of the blue. Like airtags but you know they could do something interesting they could do this new version of mag safe that they have up for charging iphones. Maybe they could do something like that with their new air model laptops where they have something. You can plop your laptop down on a pad and it charges there or maybe your magic mouse. Who knows there could be some interesting accessory. Plays i think. Europe for apple but Don't think we're going to see them. Walking very far off the beaten track here. This is going to be a math event. Gotcha and obviously arm chips. We think about arm at least if you're a nerd like me when you think about arm you'd think about the integration with sailor capabilities. So you think it's a little premature to speculate on whether or not we'll get you know four g or five g connectivity and one of these things because that that seems like that would be a sort of ultimate goal of getting some this stuff. Sinked up into a mac book. It's an interesting idea. There's been a lot of windows laptop makers who've tried that but the products have been not mainstream. They've been sort of focused very you road warriors. Business people are constantly traveling things like that. It does add expense and adds another data plan. That people are often reluctant to pay for. So i don't think for now it's going to be a top priority but in the long run you know look we all need to be connected to the internet. All the time. I think it's possible and certainly moving to arm processors same type. It's in the iphone the ipad that becomes easier if apple wants to go that route. I don't think it's going to happen for a couple years at least okay. Well thanks for your time.

LG offers a taste of what 5G looks like in South Korea

"LG Like every other mobile player is hyped up for five G.. What's the next generation technology in its home country of South Korea. I'm ready, Chang and this is your daily charge. With me as LG. Chief Technology. Officer. Ip Park. I WanNa talk about five gene. That was the topic we discussed back in at C. S. IN VEGAS. LG was an early adopter of five G.. Getting you getting that next generation while technology into your phones pretty early I'm curious what the overall reception for five has been like for consumers and consumer specifically. Five G. is not fully there yet although five G. was launched new, it'll take a couple of years for the entire infrastructure subject to be five, g.? So we are getting more and more content more and more devices in in five G.. Five. G. Phones are already out there. Everybody's using five phones, but the technical difference between Ltn five phones is very minimal currently because content is lagging behind but. Things like our dual screen phone is being well received in are launching new tax phone factors. Afon in the very near future stay tuned but also I think this may be this coroner. A situation will help will be utilized to sort of accelerate development five G. applications more because people need more immersive. You'll need more online experience at at either at home in a mobile or in the car catching in you know you talked about everyone having five phones It's perfect Segue 'cause I wanna ask about what the five experiences like in. South Korea. Because in the US you know it's A little scattershot it's not consistent. Right? You've got your verizon with very fast millimeter wave five G. in a few blocks in cities around the country. You know you've got that that sort of low ban nationwide network that t mobile nineteen have that that isn't much faster than for not what what is it like what five g. like in Seoul and what is the service like because i? Think I get the sense that is far more broadly adopted over there. Yeah. Five G. services corneas very good. As you can guess, creates a small country in very dense. So we have. Service towels everywhere. So, there's virtually virtually every place has connectivity and five much faster here. So he can get more contents so we can do much more content instant intensive things here like you can. You can watch a baseball game in a much more immersive way using dual dual screen. You can play games, you know much more emergency ban so on and so forth. So create is a much better situation to utilize five G. than other much bigger countries where you have to feel filling the all the landscape. And you mentioned that there's not not quite the content that there yet but I. Guess, we're a year into five deployment. What different applications have arisen particularly in that market since it feels like the deployments much more mature. What? What are some of the different use cases you've seen? What five gene in Korean specifically. One applicant. No. So couple of applications have been very popular with of five g you know especially a dual screen phones is that. You can deploy multiple applications, use them saying at the same time without having to switch between screens, but also you can watch. TV. Very. immersive way. So on one screen, you can watch the game on screen. You can want you all the stats, all the baseball player or you can focus on a specific player at that moment. So. It's more personalized than regular sort of A. Flat Service envy trying to build to build more and more contents behind this. In terms of the potential applications. You talked about the idea of know watching gaming against Pacific angles it'd be more personalized. Are there any potential five APPs or use cases that excite you things that you wanna see people take five take advantage of with five hundred five G. is not just for the phones but it's for everything else as well and I think automotive is one area. Utilized Five G.. So maybe even more immediate applications in connected. Car Stan. Mobile phones. But. You know there are many features that could be implemented in. five phones, for example. There's something a technological V. to X. vehicle to infrastructure technology that future costs will have for safety in coordination with infrastructure in other cars. But also, this can be implemented in software as well. We have recently developed something called to based of V. to X., and this can be implemented into an APP so that when you carry a phony five G., you're basically carrying the fight a V. TO X. Capability. So you can interact with cars, the car coming around the corner it'll alert you or alert car so that you're you're more careful and there are many other types of potential applications. To go with this on a more specific Epeli type of experience will carling for your APP when you have your phone around on you have when you have all your car driving around you can. Go. There and pure prearranged. Purchasing arrangement a while you're driving while you're walking many the meaning of those types of use cases helping to developed right now. We talked about foldable foldable phones of the last couple of times we met and just curious. It was clearly a hot topic last year less. So now even though we're still seeing some foldable phones coming out, I'm just curious what your take is on. The phone will see any kind of foldable devices from algae in the near future. So I think that's time I did probably mentioned that we we've been experimenting with many different types of phone factor, a home practice for the phone. And definitely, there's a need for larger display in the future or multiple displaying future specially with the five G.. So you see some of new phone factored phones coming up in the very near future. Okay. Nice. Nicely vague. Next. Code. Couple of weeks. Next couple of weeks okay awesome. Well. Thank you Dr Par for your time. Really appreciate it. If you have any questions about lg or five G. His twitter at the daily charge, you read all LG coverage on C. dot com for the charm.

Samsungs Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G: All the details on the $2,000 foldable

"Just large galaxy. No twenty three weeks ago. Now it's time for the Godsey full to five Jeez chance to shine. That is a mouthful brought her Chang, and this is your daily charge. Joining me is he not reporter and Samson expert tooken extra me Machar, thanks for having me. So the gutsy full to five G. and that is a really really long name. I'm just GONNA. Keep that point. It got a minor tease at Samsung's event a few back but now it gets the spotlight to itself. So just before we get into all the specs in all the other details, let's let's get the important that other way how much does this thing cost? So in the US is going to cost two thousand dollars. So basically, it's twenty dollars more than last year's model. So it's a lot of money. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That does a huge amount of money. All right. Well, this is. This is a foldable and I get the full supposed to be expensive and it is Simpson's third foldable annexed assessor to last year's fold, which famously had allowed durability issues. So what's different about? Full to in what did Samsung do to make sure this phone holds up What we saw with the flip that they had this spring was that they really had addressed a lot of the issues that the first fold had. So they dealt with the problems with the hinge kind of the crease all of the things that people were complaining about they fix those We're GONNA see a lot of those improvements in the new Z. Fold to as well as. A few like updates from the flip earlier this year. So they've redesigned the hinge and it's the same as what we saw in the flip. So you can have it. You can rest the phone kind of you know at a eighty degree angle or whatever you know set it on your table. They also have these brushes inside the hinge. So in this, they had those earlier, but this is kind of the latest greatest version of those basically to kind of mixture, dust doesn't get in the device or you know whatever is in your purse when you wrote this in there. So they, they've done those sorts of things to address a lot of those issues that we saw last year got in in case God forbid something does happen phone are there any special warranty programs or anything they're doing to kind of make sure that folks peace of mind that spending two thousand dollars on something we're kind of seeing the same sort of offers that they had before were. They'll replace the off the. Screen like a one time replacement for around one fifty. So it's less than if you had to go replace the screen on your own. So that's the sort of thing to kind of try to make it. More. Realistic. Well, if the screen breaks I'm not going to have to pay two thousand dollars to get a new phone I can pay one fifty that replaced the screen and it'll be like new again. No let's about how this differs from the previous model obviously. There's a five gene, the name. So clearly will have five, the Axis. But how much five G. is we've talked about in previous episodes you there's different flavors of it. Right so how much access does this phone actually get on the five networks? On this phone basically is all of the five G. networks like this is a really or at least the major ones that we're using right now this is a very big advance over the folds in terms of a lot of things there's five G.. One of the biggest complaints about the first fold was the tiny screen on the front of the device. It wasn't really useful enough to actually use. The fold as a phone people were tending to just automatically have to open it and use kind of that bigger tablet size screen. So what they've got this time is a screen on the front that stretches across the entire front of the device and it just makes it look last year. It's more useful. So I think people will up using this more when it's closed, not just always having to open it. Yet with the five G., we have a five G. model at all last year for the fold in the US. So this time you know five jeep bigger screen. A lot of things that just make this more attractive and the other a features or bells and whistles that. Help this phone stand apart from his predecessor. Another big thing it's kind of that flex. Mod is what they call it. So that's what we saw I with the flip where you could set the device on the table and the screen will stay open in you know whatever degree you put it in. We're seeing that with this one as well. So they're saying, yeah, you can set it up for like shooting You know a video or whatever or you know or if you're watching something or whatever you can just basically has a built in that's the screen and the device itself So you know that's a big thing that I think people really like that was kind of a cool thing that came with the flip. So. That's one of the bigger changes that they kind of also made some good camera changes with this Basically, they addressed the biggest complaints that everyone had with last year's device and fix those in this one aside from the fact that it's still a two thousand dollar phone. You asked him we were on we talked about the the narrow sliver of customers who are willing to buy a thousand dollar note twenty now this is. A two thousand dollar phone I know it's foldable but. Questions about how useful that is who is Samsung actually targeting with this particular phone Samsung. Is actually targeting note owners with this phone. They found that the people who would traditionally gravitate towards the note lineup. Kind of those early adopters who want the latest greatest tech are willing to spend a lot of money to get a flashy device to get a bigger device and. They're finding that people who were buying the fold are a lot of people who have bought the note in the past or still do the notes It's the way they distinguish the flip and the full term. Each other is they see the flip is this sort of like. Cute. Phone that becomes smaller and put. You can put it in your pocket and it's more of kind of. Everyday lifestyle device and they see the folds as really kind of letting you transition from a phone to a tablet like get more done doing more with multitasking and access different APPS like Microsoft Office. You know things that you would do on a tablet but now you also have an inconvenience of the fact that is also your phone right and then you mentioned MC sophism I'm just curious in your. Demos with this device, how like whether they showed off how you use after how took advantage of this bigger screen? Well, they've kind of had this thing since the first generation of fold where it's called continuity where you could start an APP on the front and then open, it will open at work in the bigger screen and pick up where it left off the issue was there were not ten of APPs that took advantage of it I hope that we start to see more apps soon that work with it. kind of sense than. Samsung has been working more closely with Google and Microsoft and Youtube an office and things like that, and then there's that flex MoD. Also where APPs could you could maybe have you can take like a screen shot of something in an APP over here and then drag it to another APP on another part of your screen more with multitasking. So letting you have multiple APPs open at once is a big thing with the fold You know kind of more of that tablets sort of experience instead of just a phone experience. Give everything that's going on. We're still in the middle of pandemic a still dealing with the recession with millions unemployed. What do you think about Samsung unveiling a phone at this price point? It's kind of the same situation that we saw the note where people who? Would want to buy. This are probably people who were not hurt financially by what's going on right now because they're not traveling, they're not going out to dinners they're not going out to bars. Some people are probably saving money right now and they may see, hey, this is a lot flashier device from what was last year. It. Sampson's had a year to work out the kinks. Maybe this is worth investing in. The two thousand dollars is not unrealistic based on what is actually going into the device is just kind of a question of individual people have to decide if they're willing to pay two thousand dollars, but we have to remember this technology is still really early like foldable screens. This is basically just the second year first full year of seem devices with these. So it's not like these have. been around forever like like regular led displays Five G. is brand new. That is also expensive it adds cost to a device. So you know it's just kind of what you're willing to do but then you know as we've talked before, there's kind of factor of with foldable. You get these because you want people to see them. It's kind of how like iphones used to be like. The newest generations had to have some sort of little tweaks to make it. Make people know that you have the newest device, not that s off your device or whatever that you didn't buy like a two year old phone or year old bound. So it's the same sort of thing with this with you know when people are out using a foldable people, stop them ask what is that? Can I see what is and right now you really don't want anybody close enough to you to touch your phone or see it or or even be out that much to have people see it. So you know it's kind of the whole if you're in it just for the flash flashing aspect is probably not worth it but if you're in it because you want a device that transitions from phone to tablet. It would be attractive for people and thinks, lastly, I heard this phone grants some unusual perks what do you actually get with this phone? So it seems has this sort of VIP program for the folds and you get a membership with it. It's kind of unclear how this actually work works. They said there'll be some benefits like six months free of of this like premium fitness workout system like fifty dollars off like a hare service, six months of free of linked premium. Free Golf membership you know a Michelin Star meal that you can get delivered to your home It's it's a bunch of things where it's like. Okay like you know, I don't know how much people take these and the other thing is they said that these are going to be coming to people who bought the previous fold people who bought the flip. So it's not like you have to buy the new fold to take advantage of this if you really want access to whatever these things are under hoping to add more benefits We'll have to see same is actually done this for a long time with its phones. It'll have like when you buy the new galaxy whatever you get. Six months free of dropbox and you get premium bird blah blah. Blah. So it's not that unusual for them to have kind of bundled promotional partnership deals with their device but these are kind of bigger and more like real world things. You just have you know premium flip board on your phone. Clearly geared towards towards a different customer segment. Than just premium clipboard. People. Who have two thousand dollars to spend not exactly well, thanks for your time Shara. If you have any questions about the full to his up on twitter at the daily charge, you create coverage on the phone announcing dot com the charge. Roger. Chan next listening.

Motorola brings back the Razr as a $1500 foldable smartphone

"Daily charges Thursday November Fourteenth Roger Chan and we've got special guests can young from flip board today they were talking. Motorola Marla is back in a big way with the new razor. The phone which takes design cues from the original crew six point two inch foldable little display but unlike the galaxy folder made X.. This full folds folds down into a smaller device that cost fifteen hundred dollars and in the US. It's an exclusive with Verizon Zain but you can pre-order thrown here any Europe late December with the phone actually coming out in early January. That's proud to tap into our nostalgic icons of the past asked. Can I want her to you. What was your first reaction upon seeing this I think for me in first of all? Thanks for having me really great. Join you guys here. This is actually a phone that I'm really interested to try out. I have no idea why I mean as you as you mentioned as you guys have covered. The specs aren't really like like a high end phone that you would get with an iphone or galaxy or or even with the with the galaxy fold. I think it's the nostalgia as you mentioned. It's the flip you know. This is the this is the phone that many many people have had back in a day. You know before smartphones came out it was very very popular. I think the first razor I had was when four G. was starting to roll out on. At and T.. So this is this is something that really throws me back in. And I'm really interested to see how this actually works out You you know this is. This is a factor from what you get with Samsung and alway- and everybody else Interesting to note that there's no five G. on this phone Yep it also That you know during Samsung's developer conference last month. They tease that. They were working on a foldable device so Motorola beat under the punch but of course Motorola has that has that icon that being the foot phone. So it's a pretty good pretty good deal for me absolute end. Look Ken and I both under Razer. Lord you did not those. You're actually yeah. I actually so I grew up with flip phones and I used to just go into my mom's room. Be Like Lemme. He grabbed her razors. So I can play around with it and then my classmates also had razor so I come from the generation that's like I can toss arrays. They're like anywhere we're in a field and like it'll be fine. The battery last really really long so this is actually really exciting for me just because it takes me back to being a kid and like being able to rely on my phone because I feel like now like batteries. Don't really last that long and I just feel like I'm so excited the nostalgia really creeping in right now and there was something Cathartic about being able to like. Hey up on someone right exactly and just like click in that. Say I don't have to hang up and wonder if I actually hung up the phone. So here's some Rovan Elven specs beyond the six point. Two inch internal display. There is a outside two point. Seven inch quickview screen a sixteen megapixel camera a twenty five hundred million. Yeah Barry that's actually split between the two. Has the phone six Ram One hundred twenty gigs. A storage any snapdragon. Seven hundred processor so specs are exactly top a line. There's only the really the camera there isn't like a telephoto or wide angle camera iphone. Do you think that. Can you come address this early. I mean the specs aren't on par with some of the other premiums but the price is definitely up there that you know. I think it's on par with a five hundred. Five hundred GIG iphone. Max went eleven pro. Max Axo what do you guys think is that do you think the lack of some of these high end features going to be enough to like sway people to to buy this thing go ahead you know I. Yes so I think if this was this was Samsung. If this alway everything even if this was apple yes I would probably be more inclined to pay the fifteen hundred dollars for this but the thing that is missing these are these are mid tier. This is not really this is again. This is not a premium me a phone. So Motorola doesn't have the Necessarily expertise in terms of the camera or or in terms of the. You know the software right so this this is coming with Android android nine with pie so I think if you look at what you get with the Pixel you look at what you get with the S. ten in and the note and the iphone. You're going to get a better experience. Overall is fifteen hundred dollars worth just having the flip at aspect aspect. I mean probably not I mean I I really wish it was a much lower cost of because that would actually be worth trying out but I think this is a hard hard hard

Googles Pixel 4 gets a really, really early tease (The 3:59, Ep. 571)

"The. Welcome to three Jinan Roger Chan. I'm Joanie Solomon Google decided surprised, everyone and dropping photo of the pixel forge next flagship phone and something that's supposed to come out until the fall. This is highly unusual. What do you think I'm here for it? Yeah. More transparency show us what you got don't. Let all these leaks legs set the tone in the conversation. That's true last. I mean, the pixel three light the budget phone was leaked completely before got launched Google does so maybe trying to get ahead way ahead of everyone. Right. One thing, one theory that are in lob opposed was idea that they teased out the square Cambe special multiple cameras. The iphone is also supposed to have one and traditionally, the pixel four launches the iphone. Maybe they just wanted to say, hey, we got here. I don't tell us where copying the iphone xactly. We were here first. All right. Let's talk about deep fakes and manipulate content. A video of Nancy Pelosi doctor to make her seem drunk made the rounds last week. Prizing was last week. Maybe two weeks ago, the surprising, how the different social networks, reacted Facebook kept the video, but added the fact check articles YouTube pulled Twitter actually kept on sort of suggests that like there really are no consistent rules about how social networks dealing with this content. And this seemed like they had no idea how to deal this content, and what experts say is that is a real flaw in, how're going to address, even more elaborate manipulations, like deep fix in the future. All the experts say what we need not only consistency in. In policies on social networks for dealing with it at the networks themselves, but also across that they engage with each other, and develop best practices also share resources, the only way they can really address these things if they worked together note that's not something, they're incentivized to do include be weren't in this situation rights, given how different Landale acted. And you listen to a house hearing on deep. Thanks there any highlights in terms of what they're talking about. It was definitely a theme throughout the conversation between the house representatives, and experts on the panel that social media is one of the key weaponization factors. Distributing, this sort of disinformation. And so it wasn't unreasonable for there to be these kind of questions that take these networks to task. Did you see the big Zucker Berg do? Yeah. Supercomputing all but and you know that came up on the panel like they brought up the Zakar thing. And one of the panelists experts noted, obviously, when this video says that Coburg says that I can control the future, obviously, that's not true because if he could he wouldn't be in the message and right now. So, you know, even the fact that I it is difficult. There are defects that are satire that are so Atlanta, they cannot actually believe it's hard to decide win something needs to be taken down under what circumstances, who target is. What are those? What are those rules yet? The point of the story that queenie wounded looking at the consistent reactions was. Yes. There's sometimes a line, their words. It could be parody. It could be commentary. And I think that's kinda wives social networks right now. Our little trapped in terms of like trap, but they're little befuddled in terms of how to deal with these videos. Right this content. Lastly, you want a review of a twenty seven inch Android tablet built into a GE oven hood, sticker price, only twelve hundred dollars a steel steel, would you want to put this thing on your oven plus side? Gotcha recipes and your YouTube videos on how great their in front of you in the pot. Yup. Downside putting all those Electric's right of an over. Yeah. Yeah. That's a little weird. The battery their power source. It's got all that, grease just like there's a lot of cleanup involved here. I don't know. It is on top of another hoods. Maybe. All right. That's one of the story.

The last version, the Xbox One originally didn't have XT Moore did have four K just like the PS four. And so I think they're trying to feature proof a little that there. Right. So it's, it's not where they had to come out with that Xbox One x to power, the four K resolution stole a lot of time for them to tease out a lot about this product because it doesn't come out until holiday, twenty so this was probably. Just a little bit to get people interested. And then we're going to see a lot more going forward. Yeah. The more than likely. They'll have their own little bit next year. Like they did with the Xbox One yet tour the show off the games, but halo infant is going to be a game for this four cyberpunk twenty seventy seven where the two only two trailers, I mash them watching just some huge halo junkie so beyond that last week, there was the Amazon remorse conference, which kinda got lost the shuffle. With all the touching on apple WW C, which they knew that then knew that they were scheduling, the first annual conference dub dub, tell me what is remorse. So is a it's basically Jeff Bezos is conference that they hadn't Vegas where they talk about robotics space, artificial intelligence. It's kind of big science, fair about a couple of things. So it was drove was quite enough that it could potentially sneak up on you. Yes. Yes. So Amazon announced their newest prime air drone at the conference, which is kind of a big deal, and that they continue to rate, these delivery drones that they keep tell. Us going to deliver us stuff within thirty minutes by the FAA hasn't really moved forward with the proves where we don't expect this to reach the mass market, at least the next couple of years if ever but it was a cool new drone. So tell me about on scout. Amazon scout. I got a chance to actually see this. This is a delivery drone for the ground. So it rides around in suburban sidewalks. And one of the cool aspects of it, that they told me about was that they create these duplicates of the real world, the real neighborhoods that Amazon scout is actually going around and to actually train the I to be able to actually know what to do when it goes out there and doesn't. I don't know. Knock over a tiny dog or something like that. All right. More of these sound seen it and Roger Chan, I'm Ben FOX. Zealous. Thanks for listening.

Google I/O: We break down the highlights and lowlights (The 3:59, Ep. 557)

"The. Tonight or Roger Chang. I'm Ben FOX Ruben Gallego has come and gone and Google loaded. A lot of information a lot new products. Not futures really giving us over look at what its services are going to look like over the next couple of months ban. What was your big highlight your favorite for the yesterday's presentation? I would say probably the Google pixel three. A it's nice to see like a pixel named phone kind of like a flagship style phone that's four hundred dollars. It's about time that there's a least a little bit of pricing pressure pushing the prices lower down as opposed to everybody doing thousand plus not just four hundred dollars. But also a hedgerow Jack. Yes, hijack. Yes. Unbelievable. Gimmie look there are some Meyer trade-offs there right there. No wireless, charging water resistance, a weaker front facing hammer, but the back cameras the same the same nice shot mode. So there you can see they're trying to kiss. Post or something she doesn't have anyone to take. So sad. Well, as for me by say, Google was the most impressive to be offered off of the stuff is very pine sky Sifi ish, but they offer some really tangible benefits, particularly the translation be able to like hold your phone up to sign with four languages at. Having it translate that actually overlay English textile right or vice versa, like foreign language of. That's what you speak. That's lost the ability like Scana menu. And have those items? Pop up information on the like, the dishes the specific dishes pop up. That's like a real practical benefit to me. Yeah. It's nice to see the Google lenses. Actually like now starting to spread out a little bit more. It was really just for pixel devices if I'm correct about that. And now, I can get it on my Samsung phone, so I don't know I use it around my garden. Sometimes like what tree is this. So it's nice to see that they're trying to find different benefits for it. Right. Obviously. This was a data. So, of course, looks amazing. We'll have to see what it looks like it real and real world settings. What about the the lowlights? What what for you was disappointed? Man. So I don't know if you watch till the bitter end of the keynote there. Yeah. The bitter end of the keynote tends to be like really want. He airy like like, they really saved like the very end instead of doing like, a whole fireworks exhibit to be like, hey, check this out a lot of this research is actually like quite fascinating if you dig into it. But I don't know that it was really the right place to do it at the end of a keynote after everybody was sitting through an hour and a half of you know, a lot of heavy stuff. And I think that kind of illustrations the kind of weird balance they've gotta do they're really talking to consumers in the press. And they're talking to developers that was clearly the developer portion of the presentation, it was a little a little dense for sure as me Andrew Q was disappointing. I mean, there was some talk about foldable z-. But really the the big emphasis our privacy, which surface seems great. Just felt like it was a blue Katori. Ragu goals. Like, okay, we can Connie the time of privacy. Yes. Let's make privacy. A big focus in San Ryan. It did kind of feel little boring and a little forced right? But I did appreciate throughout the presentation where they did keep coming back to pry, the they're obviously very mindful of the fact that this is where we are right now in the tech world where people don't really care as much about what the features are. What what are you gonna do with my information? When you're providing us these features. So I appreciate it. But I agree with you that it was they could have made a little more interesting last time about the the nest hub max and a year. You're the the smart speakers play guy. Greg cool. So what did you think? I don't think that there was anything that really stood out specifically that made it that much different than the previous like, let's say you already had a Google home. I is this gonna get you to go buy new one probably not. So and. And I got to go about smart displays this one adds a camera. Right. Yes. Yes. It adds a camera. But I again, if you already have one are you going to go out and get a whole other one just for the Amer feature. I don't really think. So, but it is nice that they lowered the price on the original. So that's good to definitely more for moral. Google coverage accents are Roger Chan I'm Ben FOX urban. Thanks for listening.

From Android Q to new Pixels: Our Google I/O preview (The 3:59, Ep. 556)

"The. Fifty nine Roger Chan, I'm Ben FOX Rueben Google kicks off in less than two hours. We're expecting some big updates to Android Google system. And maybe even that creepy. Duplex assistant can I last year I came? And then of course, there are the rumors of more forcible pixel three. What are you most looking forward to? I think the pixel sounds really interesting. I think that's also been like very heavily leaked. So we are definitely expecting that. I would love to see what the price point is on that. Like, let's say it's something like five hundred dollars or something like that. That would be pretty notable that would be kind of cool. Yeah. Sort of goes back to Google's routes as the maker or the partner of for nexus phones. Right. Those were known for being affordable premium flagship phones, they kind of got away with that largely focused on premium phones are far more expensive closer line with the tan or Samsung phones, they clearly felt a lot pressures. So I'm also looking for those three so three the. The other element that I think is interesting is the the Android Q is expected to show off support for foldable phones. Yes. That would have been great. But I feel like after what happened with the Samsung galaxy fold the probably gonna underplay that element. I I don't really see them leading into ill. Jeff will be one of many elements. I think they'll talk about with Andrew accu-. Do you have a guess for way in Q stands for? Quaker oatmeal cookies. Okay. Sure. That was a terrible terrible. Sorry as say quiche each. Yeah. Issues in a snack. Think they're sweet quiches right snacky shore. I don't know. All right. So Amazon goes sores are started the freight. I'll be at very very slowly we finally got one of New York. Check it out what tell me about. Why should we care about this Zongo store? Okay. So this one just opened today at Brookefield place. It's an upscale mall near the World Trade Center, the big difference here because this is the twelfth Amazon go store, so what's actually different here is that this is the first Amazon go store to accept cash so Amazon go was literally created to get rid of cash. Cashiers lines all that other stuff? So you could literally walk in and walk out in a couple of seconds. There's been a lot of blowback to the concept of going cashless because it's really considered to be exclusionary to certain people that either don't have a credit card or don't have a phone. So this is Amazon's effort to respond to that. So what was it like being in that store? Toward like was there. Someone who took the Catholic. How did that work? So they walked me through a demo because they knew people were going to ask about this since this is the first store that did this. And essentially what you do is you get to agreed are and greeter lets you in and then you walk around get everything that you need to get. And then you go to a little counter and somebody will. Basically scan in all your stuff and give you a paper recede in. It's not exactly as tacky as you. Go stores, just like any other store. Yes. Yes. But you don't have to have special app, and you can just pay with cash if you went to so from from that regard. Yeah. That's that's it is now more inclusive. Does feel like it defeats the whole purpose of that Amazon. Go store, though, doesn't it? Yes. Okay. No kidding sloughs clear about that. Lastly, let's talk about five G. There's an earth survey out the US consumers are willing to pay a premium for next generation so will service the warriors see with charted ten dollars extra for their five g service at like, ten dollars extra per phone her month charging. Yeah. Per phone per month. Yeah. So if you're on a family plan with five phones, your chart your spirit of no-one's oughta family plan with five G right now. Critical. I'll say this right now. I don't think the premiums award to even people are willing to pay more. They should coverage. Not there yet. I think both that works are actually built out actually worth it. But for now, it's yeah. Novelty. I have a controversial statement to make here, which is shouldn't have to pay a premium at all is in this just like the next iteration just make it faster and keep charging us these exorbitant fees that you've been charged per year. Like, why do I have to pay even more your point? I don't think they charge a premium for G jail T. Yeah. So there you go. All right for more than six. I'll see that. Roger Chan I'm Ben FOX.

Why did Apple remove those parental control apps? (The 3:59, Ep. 551)

"The. China Roger Chang, I'm out for doing. What exactly is apple doing to parental control absence apps store near times report, Saturday suggested apples Harding, eleven the top seventeen apps to screen times because of competitive reasons, but then apple came out yesterday and said, no, we didn't remove these apps because of that it's it was all about user's privacy and security arguing that these apps basically allow? Take access you critical formation like us location. Counter us another details. An apple try to give them fair warning. And some of these apps did not fix them. And hence they were booted. I mean, what do you think this is? I mean, I think it's a big deal. I think it's a fair assessment for apple to do that though only because a lot of stock or where apps like disguise themselves as parental control kind of Adam where you know, they put these apps on the marketplace where they say, hey, this is to help track your kids if you need to find them or that they use that excuse, but then it's really for like an ex boyfriend or something like that put on somebody's phone know where they are at all times. So if these parental if these parental control apps like are, providing like location, like why would you need to know that to limit how much time somebody uses on the YouTube app or something like that? They they did leave some of the ones that didn't violate these security policies. They're so I do think that it's important to take down these apps that that do a lot more than there. Supposed to be doing. And I you know, if we're gonna believe apple statement that the gave them fair warning. It makes a lot of sense like competitive reasons like that doesn't make that much sense to me because it's not like they're making money off of screen time. It's true though, makes you wonder why they why didn't apple flag. This in the first place that initial screening of these apps, I think that a lot of times these apps fly under the radar and when apple discovers it, they try to just get rid of it without making a big public fuss about running which I think is what they tried to do here until journalists caught wind of it. And I'm glad that they did because they could have gotten done this for other apps. You know, they could have done these for competitive purposes. The article implies I just don't see that in this scenario, just because of how much stalker wears out there. Speaking of apple companies set to report earnings tomorrow afternoon. We're going to see how the iphone businesses fared now that they've won they've stopped disclosing how many units are selling. And it seemed like over the last couple of quarters that, you know, iphone sales had Pete. I'm curious. What do you think? What protections? I mean. Honestly, if they keep the prices going up, the I don't see this working out that well for apple. I mean at the beginning of the year, they had warned that, you know, hey, our sales are not going to do as walls we project for like they Asian region China, particularly, and I just think that with less people updating their phones as they're becoming more expensive. I honestly see apple having to go somewhere else to make that money. I mean, it's clearly they're focusing on services. You've got apple TV. Plus you've got apple news. Plus the the raft of services they announced back in March. We'll see how any of them do 'cause they're they're still. It's still kind of a a ways away. I will say this every time that I think that you know, these more expensive phones aren't going to do that. While for them. They're gonna lose money the earnings come out, and somehow all these like super rich people are just buying a ton of phones for like two thousand dollars. I don't get it as thousand dollars, which well, look, maybe maybe apple TV. Plus will will be the the winner the. Save your here for apple. We'll we'll see a lastly are lower hotel had an exclusive on exposed database containing information on eighty million households. It's unclear who owned the database, but this was on a service run by Microsoft, but is sort of example of the perils of storing information online. Yeah. A lot of these leaks happen because they don't they failed to secure their databases because they think they're the only ones that have access to it. But anyone can find these they have a proper IP address or you're looking in the right places as the security, researchers found for this story, the problem with that is you know, if anyone just stumbles into this. It's kind of like finding gold buried in a forest or something like that. But it's still unclear like if anyone did have access to if it was maliciously used, but this is a massive amount of data on eighty million households. We're talking about user names talking about location. Yeah. Residents talking about whether or not another single Mary demographic, no sensitive information, like social security, number like, credit, cards, or hazards or anything like that. So you don't really have to worry about that. But there are like that's still a lot that attackers can do with just your name and address alone right in the big mystery here is that we don't even know who owns this database who to contact to get this fixed. We know Mike we contact Microsoft. They declined to comment. Maker clearly not Microsoft's responsibility. The Amazon all the time. Right. But still it is definitely a sort of a example, just how tricky these things can be and how commonplace these kinds of abilities. Right. All right for me stories six Roger Chan I'm out for thanks.

"roger chan" Discussed on KCRW

"Eight years ago. Japan was devastated by the most powerful earthquake to hit the country in more than one hundred years. It created a forty three foot tall Saddam me that killed nearly sixteen thousand people and also knocked out the power at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. It was the biggest nuclear meltdown since tra- noble in one thousand nine hundred eighty six eight years later, people are slowly trickling back into the region. But the cleanup could take another forty years to complete Roger Chan the executive editor of news, and he traveled to Fukushima in November to cover the cleanup efforts. Roger, thanks for joining us base. Rodney. So you wrote about the reminders of the disaster everywhere. I was a kid during Chernobyl. I'm we're still talking about it and insist so what did you see in Fukushima little things and big things. I mean driving through the areas near the towns that are near Christina Ricci. You could see they're still ghost towns. A lot of houses are still a barricaded with Mel gates. We actually hopped. Some of those gates we walked into some of the the stores and shops. They're devastated by this anomaly and the earthquake and really you could see the imprint of what things look like eight years ago. Close on some mannequins in the retail stores, but they're all Bandon, and it's crazy just nearby. I think one of the more stark reminders of the disaster bags radiator dirt hundreds of bags piled up everywhere that they can't really get rid of at this point. We're going to get back to that in a second. So far, we undersea said, you're describing a ghost town, basically. But there are some people who are back. Absolutely the towns further further away. I'd say about fifteen or twenty minute drive. Outside. I h e you could definitely see life trickling back in the the police station was opened the local supermarket was was open. I did see people there. But it's covered spurts, and it's still very industrial. The the main highway going to Daiichi largely it's construction vehicles trucks, really for the cleanup effort there aren't alive signs of normal everyday life. You mentioned the dirt and the bags that you were seeing the radiation. That's still there is it even safe to be there right now. It's debatable. I'd say Japan and Tokyo Electric Power company or TEPCO would argue that the surrounding area is relatively safe at this point. But there are those stark reminders and interestingly when you're driving down the highway, you'll see signs that show the radiation level every several hundred meters or so to be fair the radiation level there is lower than it could be I guess it's still higher than it is in Tokyo. But it is I guess within sort of a safe safe zone. Just interesting like even the daily weather report on the local TV station. They always include the radiation level in the area speaking with Roger Chang about cleanup efforts in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Eight years later, Roger you mentioned TEPCO who's the company that owns and operates the plant that failed. They're saying that the cleanup despite all these, you know, small changes we're seeing now could take up to forty years. That's correct. It's been very slow going. It's been eight years and really only now we literally start scratching the surface of the problem. Just back in February. They finally sent a robot into one of the reactors Judah to which is actually the most radioactive of the three reactors and for the first time was actually able to to pick up and hold a pebble within the core of the reactor. And that's that. How far they've gone in years after a lot of failure. They've finally got Moi's robots in there and actually touched the pebble. But that's it. And that that sort of gives you a sense of the magnitude of problems like how much more that they actually need to get through to clean up these reactors. What about prevention as TEPCO laid out any plans for that? So that there is not another disaster like this. Well, the not so much, but only because they've shut down all of their power plants. Fact, I think all but eleven nuclear power plants are are shut down and putting all the cO plants. There's not even. Discussion to turtles things back on an so TEPCO isn't really focused on prevention at this point, they're focused on. Daichi which is a massive massive problem and one of the most important issues, it appears is the one of contaminated water what's happening there and how easily can they contain it? So that the core problems. I think the dirt is a very visual graphic reminder. But what you don't really see is the the amount talks water that needs to be cleaned up and collected. And they can't do anything with this water. They actually just have to store it. And so for the last eight years they've been storing a huge amount one point one million tonnes of contaminated water sealed up in nine hundred tanks on the facility. It's it's mind boggling, and it keeps looking so imagine a leaky bucket that you constantly have to keep clicking the water and storing it, and so they estimate they have enough room to hold about two hundred seventy thousand tons of water which would take them through sometime next year. And then after that they run out of space. You said it keeps leaking that that's concerning today that it's leaking back into the environment. Yes. This is the issue that there are leaks. One some of the water needs to be Hughley cleaned out because it's the water use a cool the fuel rods. But there are leaks at the bottom of these reactors what they've done basically, create this ice wall. And I kind of profiled in one of my pieces they've they've kind of created ice wall around the reactors too hard in the ground around it, basically prevent the toxic water from leaking out and the groundwater that slowing from the mountains in the west from going in. So they've tried to reduce the amount of water the toxic water being generated. But it's still a big problem. How do you even contain something like water? I mean, obviously, we're talking about how. But like really how are they clear that they've gotten all of the contaminated water is there potential for there to be more, given these leaks and the dirt that we just discussed. Yeah. I mean, they I think they've done a pretty good job of of collecting the water inside again. Like they've they've created multiple barriers to prevent the water from going to see I'm sure there's some leakage, but they've actually done a lot to at least prevent the water from leaking out and they've got facilities on the grounds. That actually are designed to treat them a water, and they'd actually managed to get about they've gotten sixty two out of the sixty three contaminant elements out of the water. But the last one tritium is because it's genetically bonded is really really difficult. So the water is still technically deemed.

Elizabeth Warren goes after big tech (The 3:59, Ep 531)

"Three fifty nine. Roger Chan I'm out for dang on Friday. Senator Elizabeth Warren called for the break-up of tech giants like Amazon Google Facebook. She's recommending the use the US bands companies from owning a platform and any sellers on it and over the weekend. She added apples mixing interview at south by south west. This looks to be the cornerstone of a presidential run. What what do you make is? This is this is this just sort of like vague promise to get attention, or do you think there's some actual fire behind this? Don't think that this is a vague promise. I mean, you know, if you take a look at it. This is something that lawmakers have been considering for awhile. Now, every time Facebook was at a congressional hearing. They would ask them. You know is Facebook monopoly, right? Facebook off would often reply while no because the average person has eight apps on their phones and Facebook is only one of those app, right which acting Instagram and WhatsApp are and Facebook messenger are among those top eight apps. But if you think about that, I mean look at Google. Goal with obviously itself and then their ownership of YouTube g mail, Android. Get all these major services. And that is something that, you know, lawmakers have been taking a much more scrutiny toward the FTC recently announced that they would have this new bureau that would be looking at a tech mergers. Even retroactively, you know, so they could, you know, potentially take action on Facebook and Instagram interesting. But do you think how realistic is it to break up? These companies Evora got the counter argument, of course, is these companies are all competing against each other or ready there's competition, and that's driving. I guess innovation and driving fairness and how they operate, plus how detrimental effect with this be on the US. We broke up our biggest. Yeah. There's definitely a lot of pushback on this. Some folks have made the argument that you know, by doing this. You're weakening American tech companies allowing foreign companies like wow way to basically pro. Different based off of this. But I think that, you know, recent data scandals recent priva- privacy issues have really brought people's attention to this. Because you know, if you if you don't wanna use Facebook, but you still want to keep in touch with your friends. What options you have you have Instagram? Right. What's up? I mean, there's Twitter, but you know, I use line. Yeah. No, you're right. In terms of the major services. We do have fairly limited options and those limit options tend to be all about the people. And you know, and that might become even more limited with Mark zuckerberg's plan last Wednesday where he detailed his idea of combining Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram messengers. All right. So tesla about-face saying that about half the stores that had planned to close would remain open. But for tesla fans, bigger news. Here's that the prices on higher end model three model S immoral model. Cars will go up by about three percent on average which is not insignificant for car. The price changes don't go into effect. A later this month. But what do you think this is? Tesla retreat mode. I have never had plans via tesla now. Especially don't have our lands considering that it's even more expensive. Now isn't having this company at least with their cars, not been that stable of it's like prices and like releases and things like that. And now, it's definitely traditionally has been very difficult to buy these you have to get on a wait list. It's kind of pain the butt to buy a tesla. That's been par. The mystique company that it's so hard to like the the iphone gold, right? It was hard to get in this. You know, it's that's what the appeals for. I just know the stock is up about a percent right now, which is kind of weird when any other automaker said they were closing stores or raising prices in the cars. This has added to the mystique. The investors. Other investors would freak out as any other company. But it's tesla. So lastly, our own Aaron Carson what to is at south by south west. She had chance to check out us. The new suspense film by join peel to fall to his critically acclaimed get out Aaron says, it's not quite as good as get out. But definitely has shared thrills and laughs. I definitely think that Jordan Peele is establishing himself much more, and like the horror landscape what I'm really looking forward to the twilight zone that he's directing on CBS all access banks, which is our parent company. Thanks for that shutout Alford checks in the mail, literally. Yes. So look, it's it's interesting that given his keen peel back around. It was all comedic background that he's made this dramatic move to these films like get out like us, which really is so far from his own Scott shows just kind of funny all right for cover ticks runner. Chiang? I'm out for dang for listening.

VR took me inside Fukushima's deadly nuclear reactors (The 3:59, Ep. 529)

"Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Roger Chang Joni Saltzman. So I got a chance to walk into one of the reactors of Japan's Fukushima Daiichi. But I couldn't actually get into the actual core would die because I would die. It was literally. Yes. Within minutes. I'd probably be dead of. But thanks VR. I was able to actually get into the Corelli's stimulated version that I corps. This was a fairly unique use of VR and to be clear wasn't exactly like a full Oculus rift headset, you'll see through glasses looking at a big screen. But it was for me. Like one of the examples for me. The are like that didn't compose suck. You haven't watched the VR that I've seen will. Yes. It's the thing. That's also I mean to the point of exclusive content. This was clearly very expensive since I know like this isn't really for entertainment. This is really for companies looking to users experience to simulate what's like sending a robot the core. And so it was I mean, actually like I said really useful kinda see able to kind of hover eating really walk sort of hover through the core. Sometimes at times like flying through walls, and you kind of felt that we're tingle when you went through wall. Really you actually kind of bought the allusion. Yeah. Even though it was projected on project on the walls, Jacqueline is predicted the wall the floor the the walls around me. And so it was fully immersive the not immersive like innocuous risks. And what did you did have a head mounted display? You had some smart glasses. What did those purposes the glasses were there are three glasses that helped create the allusion that you were actually immersed in the six? Reince and actually come away seeing the five of standing Mexico. The person the middle was sort of navigating he had a control the phaser from Star Trek. His glasses had motion tracking sensors that ping the sensors that were on the wall. And so when he moved around like it kind of accounted for his movements as well. Interesting. So yeah, it was kind of unusual use of the R. I think I think that's interesting though, that this sort of enterprise style. Use for VR was more compelling to you stuff that's made for consumers. Yeah. The experience was fairly slick not quite as like entertaining as some of the experiences you've had at various festivals. But like, I feel like the usefulness of this is just was very very compelling. Next up more full phones last week. It seemed like he was a crazy hot topic but taper off a bit as I think everyone's starting to realize they can't afford one. But Samsung is reportedly working on two more foldable phones one that folds outward like a the wall way made x one that's more like a clam shell. Right. And you've said in the past that there's different levels of stress from these kinds of. What a complicating here. So the the galaxy full one they actually announced two weeks back it folds inwards. That is probably the most stressful way to full the phone and you'll you'll notice with God's there's a huge gap in the middle. There's a reason why it's so the radius is a little bit larger less stress on the screen having a full hour. Like, the mate X is less stressful and can make for like you can do different things with the made ex. It was a thinner more sleek design than the fold, and I think I'm assuming Samsung saw that was like, oh, we should probably work on that. So they're going to be making one that does do that outward fall. Yes. And then something like a clam shack kinda like those old flip phones like we can report that Motorola's working on a foldable phone and might be bringing back the razor in that forum. So I imagine Samsung is looking to fall along with that as well. Lastly, captain marvel comparing this week sina gave it a fairly glowing review, but you saw. Last night. And what did you think? I mean quickly. I think that it's totally serves we'll superhero movie. Total sleep totally fine marvel movie and totally fine like girl power movie, but it didn't strike me as being an exceptional marvel movie or an exceptional feminist movie. And what was the, you know, like, you know, brought up when we were talking earlier when I saw wonder woman that initial beach battle scene like it brought tears to my eyes. I'm not embarrassed about it because you know, you never get to see women as warriors in that way in a movie like that ever. And so it was just so striking. How different it felt to watch. It never got that feeling felt more like typical marvel movie typical Mark. It's great that they have a smart actress and great supporting character actors in there too. And so it felt really fun. I wouldn't. Yeah. I can't glow array about it. What are the question? What SNL Jackson was aged trained for this movie? Like did that was? It wasn't noticeable. I only in the sense that I was like, whoa. He looks young. It's like it's like Pulp Fiction era sort of gang. But I didn't notice it looking awkward did notice that who's the guy that is like one of his. Not maybe. Yeah. Anyways, one of the other characters who was also digitally. I notice that he looked very stiff like his facial expressions. And so maybe it's because he was a much smaller role. They didn't put as much effort into make digital DA djing Lucas slick. I didn't it wasn't distracting with female Jackson, and he was one of the most fun characters in the movie. So okay, there you go for full coverage on C. I'm Roger Chan I'm Joanie Southland.

Sundance shows off a new trend of AR, VR (The 3:59, Ep. 514)

"Welcome to three fifty nine on Roger Chan Joni salesman. Augmented reality in virtual reality are still finding its way but a new trend emerge out of Sundance film, vessel one. That puts the focus squarely in your body. Joan you spend a lot of time. Try out the experiences their bottom, I won't bows alike. And is this stuff? This is going to bring the art AR to the wider market. It was really cool. Like, this is the thing about getting to have my job is that I get to go to these things like Sundance and try out all these Aaron VR experiences that almost nobody else gets to see and let you go which not very many people, especially Sundance says little it's not little, but it's a festival that's onnell teeny tiny mountain town, you have to really dedicated to go. So part of the problem is that these are really cool experiences. The ones that we're talking about in this festival use your body as technology. So you don't have to fiddle with controllers and figure out how to make things work if you just kind of are moving around to make things work. It's a lot easier. It feels more natural. But the problem is a lot of people may never get to try those things because you have a way to be released into that point. It just I feel like I read a lot about these experiences, and I've never actually get to try get like I get like the crappy marketing tie in experiences. And then that's basically it like. Yeah. The last one I could kinda remember the Power Rangers VR experience, which is not very good. Right. It's very. Short. So so what might be sort of a light at the end of the tunnel for experiences. Like that is that there's this growing popularity of LB location based entertainment and the idea that air VR almost not like going to theme park now that expensive. But it's something that if there's an experience that you hear about is really cool like the one where you get to eat food while you're watching the are one where you get to travel through time with your body, whatever it may be the one that appeals to you the idea that you could go to a place in see it, and you don't have to invest in a headset. And it's not a solitary experience something that you get to have at a location kind of piggybacking off of this popularity of immersive experience is as a kind of entertainment that might be a way that it breaches the mainstream. Right. All right. So on Friday, I'm sure you were all glued to the five plus hours or the oral arguments before a US pills court over the fate of net neutrality. I know our own accurate in was bottom line. I think the hearings sort of put the FCC on on the defense. A little bit in terms of questioning whether or not the agency should move forward with this. Whether or not they have the power to actually repeal the laws and mega action note that notes that ultima this come down to some technicalities public safety, and whether or not the c- considered it in making these rules changes. I mean, what do you think this is obviously an Uber complicated topic? But. Right now. I mean alternately the bottom line is. We just have to sit in wait like, yeah. Well, there's less that we know now than we did before she Maggie Friday called her Super Bowl was the big deal, obviously. But this is like the worst kind SuperBowl. Because after the game end, you don't know the winner is for several months. So like the right decision doesn't actually come out for until probably summer. Right. So in the meantime, we just have a lot more question marks about right about net neutrality a-. It's just funny that ultimately this might come down to the controversy with Bryson's throttling. The fire department during the California wildfires, which isn't really even. It's not another trolley, but it was a public safety thing. And it would be kind of weird that was sort of the crux of how net neutrality comes back to life. It is a really good example of like a fear based way of illustrating this case. But in other cases, atrocities the way that it was implemented. This rollback might be putting some things that we hadn't thought of it nature. Lastly Super Bowl was yesterday. We we can't ignore it. I just want to like did you have a favorite commercial? I didn't because I didn't watch the Super Bowl like a lot of people. I'm sure after watching the first couple of callers that game. I actually I washed most commercials on you to like the avengers commercial, which that was really my main goal vendors, and captain marvel Angolan watch watching the Super Bowl. Yeah. That the well the XBox control was the XBox commercial about the, adaptability. Controller was wondering Mary, heartwarming. And then having the Budweiser slash game of thrones commercial account. Threw me off in a good way. All right for full coverage. I've seen it. And Roger Chan Joni sauce, actually listening.

Want a 5G-powered iPhone? Get ready to wait (The 3:59, Ep. 498)

"Three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Ruben Roger Chan apple plans to wait until twenty twenty to start selling a five G powered iphone? That's according to a story from Bloomberg yesterday, which supports previous reports and apples typical strategy when a new network gets deployed. So Roger the first question I have is why would apple when a wait until twenty twenty. If you know, what is it? Same songs already making noise about creating five g phones were it's for Rizon AT and T next year. What's what's the benefit for them? The benefit is this is the standard apple playbook. They don't like to jump into need new technology quickly. They did as with wireless charging with apple mobile payments. They basically wait for the technology to mature to more people have it or comfortable with the idea make sure although the wrinkles have been ironed out, and then they jump in. They did this with three g they did four G. They were always about a year behind your and a half behind argue this time around with five being as given the excitement little fudgy, so high there's a lot of interest in it. It may not be the best move for apple to wait this long. But you've got a wake the cycles. Right. Like latoya nineteen if they're missing that. Then you've got to wait till the light twenty twenty five GI phone. You know, it's get apple apple Zappa l-. Do you think? So do you think that competitors would actually be able to steal customers away from them? Because of this like because I'm wondering if five G is really going to be much of a thing next year. Anyway. No that is a fantastic question. I think twenty twenty nineteen is one five g kicks off. But it won't be brought the vailable. You're right. It'll be a handful of cities that doesn't sit here and there and even within those cities just a few neighborhoods. It's gonna take a while for five year ramp up. So apple can make the argument that it's still not around. It's not probably they'll why are we going to invest it? Now, the character that is this whole five G ecosystem moving towards upgrading everything networks devices and apple does risk falling behind given that all these other companies are going to be a year or two more experienced in dealing with the issues. Five G. We talked gesture. Today about how five G wasn't gonna be perfect from the Geico. But in order to make it order improve the service, you've got actually get it out there. And so apple is going to be starting. We started late, but also gonna be starting kind of fresh whereas everyone else will have a bunch of years of five G work under their Bill. Yeah. Unfortunately, I think apple continues to benefit from the fact that they control their own ecosystem. So you'd have to get somebody. That's really excited about five Geeta actually jumped ship, and unfortunately, I think you know, Samsung and all the other competitors know that so we'll we'll see if they actually really the geeky geeks who are into five Jeep might make the move. But for most people, you're right. They're probably gonna stick to their IOSCO system. Yeah. So next I wrote about neighbors the neighbors app from rang, which is Amazon smart home company. The app is part of a new crop of social network like neighborhood watch apps. What was interesting to me about this was I got a chance to see some of the alleged crimes that were going on in my neighborhood. There was like some some folks that were apparently trying to break into car. Somebody was vandalizing outside streetlight. I mean like I live in a quiet neighborhood in New Jersey. And what's what's obvious to me is the benefits for companies like ring for having something like this because it could convince more people to buy brought basically like free advertising, right like checkout. All crimes your neighborhood, you really upgrade to a ring system. So I talked to an analyst about this. And he said that you have to draw very careful line if your ring for this kind of thing. Yeah. You wanna create a neighborhood watch app that actually has benefits for the neighborhood? And you don't want to just make it look like an advertisement because then it's just cynical and people aren't going to buy into it. But so far this this is serve like, it's almost like a social feed. And it's pretty entertaining. That's the thing is that, you know, if you get sick of like Facebook or like checking out like your other feeds you go on like the neighbors feed. And you're like, oh my God. I can't believe that's happening. So that's sure all that stuff. I mean, people love watching these kinds of videos, you got direct fee to them. I got I got a little obsessed with it.

Samsung, Verizon are jumping into 5G together with next smartphone (The 3:59, Ep. 497)

"Welcome to the you tonight. I'm Roger Chan I'm Joanie Sossamon five G is right around the corner. The Qualcomm may give us the first look at what will really be like the is holding its Snapdragon tech summit in Maui of all places tomorrow. We're expecting to see live five demonstrations and devices that will actually be capable of running on them ahead of that variety. And Samsung announced today, they are they're planning to launch a five smartphone in first half of next year. So what do we actually know all these things nothing as as the become a common thing with these five G device ounce, mints, they basically say we're going to have a five G thing. We can't tell you what it's called how much 'cause race back. Czar Bill be it will be available in the first half of next year. So the kind of interesting thing about it is that no really no really five G is coming. Yes, exactly. They like we've been talking about this as a thing that might be happening. For three three years four years. This point that it's actually going to happen in the next few months is I guess exciting enough exciting for people like Roger extremely exciting for people. I Roger because not writing about this for a long time. I'm really eager to see this in the field. It bitch saying our own shar tip can and Jessica dole court will be out at these. Dragon Tech's summit, they'll be checking out this stuff. So we'll get for suppressions from them this week. All right. So let's VR Joan you went to Los Angeles to check out this crazy experience based on a Charles Dickens, Christmas, Carol, right? What what was that? Like, it was really cool. So it's a new wave in virtually trying to get people to make virtuality that people actually want to go see where you combine a headset with site specific performance that includes a live actor that moves around you emotion capture suit. So you don't see the light actor you see them in the headset as avatars different characters. But they can talk to you with their own voice. They can touch you. You can touch them you actually interact with a real human. And so yeah, this one was based on a Christmas. Carol is definitely a lot scarier than like Mickey Christmas. Carol the DVD, and I were talking about earlier, it takes a very like true to the dickens, creepy fashion. And I got to go behind the scenes and check out the motion capture technology, which was fun watching this video. It's basically it's a one on one experience you an actor. And that's it right? Yeah. That's about twenty minutes. There's an actor that you see that's in Victorian costume, as you kind of like put on the she's the one that helps you put on the headset in a way that gets you sort of like in the mindset of you're going to be going, and they do a lot of really like the technology is really cool. But I also do a lot of simple things like they have have walls that appear. So where you there was a while before in your headset. There can disappear physically to an addition to being in your headset. And this is deathly sort of a next level. Or step up from those basic VR experiences. We've all tried and progress, and the funny thing is even as advanced as this is compared to what's come before. It's still at like that they're hacking it together stage, the technologies combining all these different elements. -nology still is at a point where there's a lot farther. It can go as technology gets better. I wo- was alike wearing those motion capture suits fun. Like, it's it's really comfortable wearing a body suit. So it's you know, it's like doesn't cramp or anything like that. But it's it's you look funny like you have gone little balls balls all over you. And it was and it's just really they say every time so motion capture the first thing they do is wave wave Cartwheel's because I can actually still do cartwheels like you're not like plugged in or tied. And it's also that the room is surrounded by cameras day. Have the the balls are the little markers and pick up the markers visually. Oh nice. Did you see yourself in VR afterward? Yeah. Well, they weren't. They didn't have. Chance to do a full there to laments of the motion capture those the body motion capture and then the facial stuff facial stuff takes a long time.

O L z X nine C code also listed in the episode description play now. Welcome to the tonight on Roger James. I'm out for dang. Remember what it was enough to have a single camera on your phone? Well, those days are long gone apple kicked off the two lens trend wa L G at three lenses to a phone this share Samson's posts add six guys see us ten next year. LG has of even more extreme sixteen lenses. Look at this. Configuration. Wow. What do you think it looks like Swiss cheese on the back of your phone? Sixteen cameras, right? That's got to be like at least eight times better than the iphone. I don't know if that's how the math works. But I mean, I look at it. And I just think you know, how like we've always talked about how there's a lack of innovation in phone s like forms like, you know, it's been this kind of like square screen for a really long time. And then I love that all these phone makers are basically just like, you know, what would we do to shake things up sixteen cameras? It's just more and more cameras until the full thing, it's a rubik's cube. Where each block is just a camera while we did Samsung did show off actually are is selling a phone with four camera lenses in the back. So it's not implausible than that. These camera makers are just trying to add more and more lenses. This is an interesting it's a four by four grid configuration. It's it's kind of done in a circular formation. So I guess it would be better for three d imagery. I wonder what like each lens would be doing. And so with dulas, you know, one is to capture the background in one four ground for a better bouquet affect. I'm very curious. So is this like one is for specifically like lighting one is four specifically like, no, I think it's it's to take sort of these multi perspective photos, or you can change the angle maybe moving around and come in a three D kind of affect way. I don't know. It's weird. It's crazy. But you know, what it industry that is kind of lacking in innovation six, maybe sixteen cameras is it. Yeah. Speaking of wearing crazy, Elon Musk today, basically mentioned that he there's a seventy percent chance that who moved to Mars. And a little bit weird and crazy center on axios on HBO on Sunday night. I mean, we we know about SpaceX we know about their whole like space exploration mission. I mean, he lost you musk on Mars. I mean, good. He should go to Mars. The big me as long as Twitter's on Mars. I think that'd be good for him. I mean, I don't know how the Tesla's there would work or us solar city. I don't know how much sunlight Mars gets. I don't know much about space. He was talking by sort of referencing the progress that SpaceX has been making on, you know, rocket technology and actually getting people to Mars spin a long-term gold his for while. He has this starship. I guess it was formerly known as the far and not been FOX ribbon. But apparently, it's gonna cost couple hundred thousand dollars snag a seat there. Either way just kind of a weird. I mean, what's the percentage that you would move to Mars premiums zero. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I'm going with zero. And pretty sure that's the case. Yeah. Okay. I mean, the less some sort of like zombie apocalypse hits earth. Right. There's not real reason to move to Mars. Yeah. You got a good place. Here real estate is looking very charming on the left side of Mars. Well, there you go. And you know, what the way real estate prices are going maybe Mars, maybe the w- the way to go or lastly, please check out our site for all of the many many cyber Monday deals. They're out there.

Is the new MacBook Air really worth it? (The 3:59, Ep. 486)

"Chang amount for dang Jan Ackerman. At Apple's MAC book air is going on sale today. And we've got Dan ackman onto talk about his review. Hello breakdown for us is the new macbook air worth it. It's very different from the old MAC book air, which both of you guys. Have that's designed it has not changed a lot in the last basically eight to ten years, and it was just really getting old. I mean, they're just not. So remember one of the cool, but the almost tech. I went to look up the original two thousand eight was when this was announced this when Steve Jobs, I think famously took it out of Manila, which by the way, he like faked that it was it couldn't actually fit in a little bit extra large gun extra. There's no way that original mat book Erica fit in anyways. So I went back did, oh, let's look at the original review from ten years ago. I was like I wonder I looked at the review it said, oh who wrote this turns out. It was me. I had no memory of this whatsoever. But if you wanna see me giant sideburns, you can see the video for that that we republished back in January for the actual tenth anniversary. So this is the first really really really substantial redesign in many years on this. And you know, what it looks and feels like the twelve inch macbook and teen inch macbook pro it's right in that family. Now, it is it's got the same butterfly keyboard, which is very shallow. Keyboard that giant touch the retina display with the much smaller Bethel's, you're still windows, laptops, with less benzel than this which is a little border between. We're this display ends and the ends. Mattock pretty good. Can we talk about the ports ports common? Oi. May there's only the two that's always it, isn't it. That's number one question. If it's a new MAC book, it's going to have USB ports. Thunderbolt three ports, but the really USB confusing to people stand technically the shape, right? And you can do power through this video data really anything just like on the current macbook pros. And frankly, a lot of high in windows, laptops, are USB only. Now, also, so it's not that crazy. The USB. See I'm not I don't have a huge issue because I know a lot of companies are moving to them. That's the features going. It's the fact that there's only two on one side they can do one on one. They couldn't figure on regular US food Jaffe lights, we should answer the question. That's the title of this podcast, though. Is it worth it? Is it worth the higher price tag everything about this air is new and improved for the most part much faster processor better track? Keyboard you could equivocate on screen much, much better lighter. So everything pretty much changed. Unfortunately, also changed is the price the air famously nine ninety nine for many many many years you could say going to save up for a couple months again, a MAC book air for college students a bit of a reach. But you could do it. Now. The starting price is eleven ninety nine which is frankly twenty percent Trump. That's big jump. And and it's it's no longer the automatic recommendation for let's say at college to or writer designers because it's that much more expensive and for one hundred dollars more, you could get either the twelve inch MAC book, which is less powerful, but more portable, and I actually like it a lot or the base model thirteen inch pro which is less portable. But power. What do you think is this worth? I think if you want a MAC book air, but you didn't want this old one. Yes, overall, it's a fantastic laptop. And if it was nine ninety nine I'd go out and buy one myself, right? This second ten ninety nine still pretty good once eight eleven ninety nine. Then it's then it's less of a of a blow out. All right. So let's talk about privacy effort. You've got a fascinating story on. How restaurants are clicking our data through these weightless apps. What's going on here? So if you've ever been a restaurant, and it's packed, and they say, you know, give us your phone number, and we'll send you a tax tables. Right. You can go go walk around the mall or something like that. While you're waiting for your table. If they're using an apt to automak automatically send you a taxed there's a good chance that there are some privacy. Implications come with that. So certain apps will keep your phone number for a certain amount of days at restaurants can take a look at other apps. They're able to share it with party marketers one. For example, open table is owned by kayak, which means that they're able to share it with all their different websites. So that's one example, yelp owns one called no way. And they say that they don't really do any marketing with your number. But they do keep it if you're using their app. Restaurants and malls. Or you're going to all the nicest ones all the fanciest ones. I live very. The best here, we do have malls here. They're rare. But there are malls in Brooklyn in Manhattan. You can call that Amalia herald square. Okay. The famous famously almost always empty Manhattan mall. Exactly. Yes. So. Is something that people should be worried about it depends. I mean, if you really don't care about, you know, your privacy, and you really just want the convenience of it. There's there doing this. So it's much more convenient for you. So that the next time you go to this restaurant. They'll know oh, this guy likes a seat by the window or something. I got it. Okay. A lot of it is done for the restaurant sake as well. So they know when their peak hours are how long people are waiting how long they should keep people waiting for without them wanting to leave or anything. So it is beneficial for restaurants. But you do also have to be mindful of your privacy. Right. Do you want to be a part of that experience? Just another example our slowly giveaway away all information, you need a restaurant at burner number could do that companion at that will give you a sixty minute phone number, and you can give them that. All right. So we're way over time for more on this chicken sound CNN. Roger Chan I'm outfitting, Dan Ackerman listening.

5G video that changes according to your reactions: Scary or awesome? (The 3:59, Ep. 479)

"Welcomes three fifty nine on Roger Chan Janis also I'm offering five g. package continues team along today. We've got a look at how five g. might change video. Joan tells about this scary, utopian future five g. might actually bring. It's a scary utopia or dystopia could be awesome. It could be amazing, depends on your your perspective. But yeah, tell it tell us about this idea of five g. potentially customizing video on the fly. Well, the idea is that five g. opens up the ability to have video that's much more interactive than we've ever really known before and interactive video up until this point has been really clunky. It hasn't been super popular. Interesting, but not not very stops and you have to push a bun. Most of it is kind of choose your own adventure style. Stop for the soil. I'm pauses and its like, does the character Goto the scary woods or go to the castle to fight the dragon, stuff like that. Five g. has the capacity the capability of potentially creating videos where the plotline changes, depending on how you react to watching it on your phone. It could have VR and AR could explode because of the capability of having that real time exchange of information happening with your phone that five g. can handle that. Previous technologies couldn't let opens all kinds of crazy price because if it's like constantly watching for your reactions, right while you watch everything with a scheme on do so like hockey mask, it's yeah, we're in a chant time right now. We're hyper hyper aware, but we're more aware than we have in the past about how technology compromises our privacy in order to give us things that delight us as some companies like to put it. So with this one, it's the same situation. People talked to are like one great thing is how with five g. we can use your. Cameras to be taking all this visual visual information that will further advance the ability to have interactive television. But the downside is that your camera would be taking all the visual information all around you all the time. So there's always, it's we're, we're going to have to figure out a way to strike compromises that. Don't people out or we'll speaking of privacy. The us holding a big president conference in Brussels, Katie Collins out there, but some of the details of what apple Facebook said at this conference. So Tim cook spoke at it earlier today. And he's actually the first tech CEO to speak about privacy on a US data privacy law. This has been brewing for some time now, but usually through a privacy officer, some lawyer for you know, Amazon or Facebook Google. So Tim cook is the first Texier to actually comment about this, and he basically criticizes the tech industry and talks about all the issues with privacy that we've already seen through the last year. Companies using your data and things like that. And then he laid out basically apples plan or what apple wants and a US privacy law, which includes the right to have your personal data minimized, the right to know what is being collected about you the right to control, you know, you can edit or delete what data company has on you and then security as a foundation for all that, making sure all of that is stored on secure server. The interesting part is that he criticizes website or you know, you criticize tech companies out there doesn't name any of them. A lot of it is what Google and Facebook does. And if you look at Google's privacy framework, it's almost the exact same thing. Facebook didn't lay out their their whole plan for what they want to use their privacy law. But Mark Zuckerberg basically went out there and said, hey, you should trust us. Yeah, that's, that's. That's what I'm gonna do trauma trustmark. All right. Lastly, in the time that we had last time we have just want to shout out to Megara exclusive interviews with FCC chairman and Commissioner, just Rosen worse. All talk about the dilemma facing rule broadband and how they can agree sometimes disagree on some solutions to fixing that problem for full coverage. Chickasaw, see, Roger tank, Johnny salsa, amount for listening.

We break down what 5G will really be like (The 3:59, Ep. 475)

"Welcomes drift. Roger Chan, I'm Joanie sauce. We kicked off a new package on five g. today in our leadoff story takes a look at what five g. will actually feel like one launches and this is my story. I, I took care to basically type poke holes at all the hype around five g. basically don't expected to change your life right away. Coverage is going to be spotty or non existent. Your phones might run out of batteries really fat or run a power really fast. They're my problem with content getting onto five. JIRA game kicked back down for four g. basically all the problems we saw when we transitioned LT probably see with five. Jeez, sounds amazing. Right? Eventually. So yeah, look, this is the excitement over five g. I think justified in terms of what it can do for us over the long term when this actually gets built out and as a bit more mature. But the sore is really on reminder that with all the hype like early on, that things aren't going to go smoothly as everyone says, it will what's for win will reach that point of maturity that pseudo maturity like prematurely, but not like clunky doesn't actually work. I would say twenty twenty s probably the the better timeframe t mobile has said that they they're promising nationwide network by twenty twenty nationwide by twenty twenty. And that'll that that'll definitely get a couple of faster if they can buy with sprint eighteen Reisen probably be not that far behind. And then most of the Asian countries have started building out or will build up most of their networks at that point. So. I think that's the point where like you can start to actually get excited g. Okay. Next up our own even Shanklin had a nice breakdown on how Google uses computational photography to Busey ability of the single camera on the pixel three, for instance, uses to make better portrait photos takes a budget, exterior shots and combines them for a better low light photos night shot and got some because super high rez is basically making up for the lack of an optical zoom lens uses data to kind of fill in the blanks. So Kusaba is this enough Joan to convince you that only one cameras, all you need on a phone. You know how I like a multiple cameras on phones that Samsung four-camera four shooting, but I think that sounds great. I mean, it sounds really cool the ability to do all these fans now is the computational photographer. You what also enables the stuff like the wide selfie mode and like the. The thing that will fix when you are blinking in the middle of your photo. So the white selfie mode, they actually will have a second camera on the front. That is a wide selfish Cam. So that's not that's not competent. You can't really use data for that before in terms of fixing things. Succinct blemishes. Yeah, that's what that probably what Google's Bagga trick soul about. Lastly, Joan you were covering. Noth- looks earnings last night and if there was some concern that those can be a blip or well, yeah. Last quarter. With earnings, always about expectations of anything. The only thing that people ever care about enough Lexus, how many subscribers did you add? Three months ago. Netflix said we had a subscribers just not as many as we said. We want and everyone freaked out. So last night people are really worried that maybe this was Netflix standing on the brink of downturn, especially because other companies and technology haven't been doing so great, but Netflix said, you know, he's up, you have this. We actually like, did a lot better than that. And so everyone freaked out. But yeah. Interesting that that they're seeing that success given the sheer number of streaming services that are launching now like, yeah, Netflix is just for the core. The no one really gives up, right. I mean, people always say, if you're going to have a streaming service, the mindset that consumers have is like you're going to have maybe y'all, two, maybe three, and one of them's going to be not lex, very, go for full coverage on CNN and Joni.

"If you're a fan of the latest iphone, you're gonna get to see what it looks like today joining us now live to talk about it is seen as Roger Chan good morning Roger morning. How're you doing good? So I'm hearing that it's it's not just one phone. It is multiple phones and other products that were expected to see from apple today. Exactly. We're expecting to see three. I sounds at least three iphones successor to last year's iphone X a larger version of that song. I thought X s max if you could say that three times fast and then cheaper phone, but larger the iphone X are that uses cheaper specs to keep the price down. So I I know I didn't do as well is apple hoped. What is different with these phones? They're hoping to get more consumers to purchase them. That is a great question. I think was something apple to have to answer. Today. We've seen a lot of leaks in terms of the kinds of devices are the sizes that we haven't seen a lot on the features. Apple gonna have to work extra hard to sell us on this new batch of songs now keep in mind. This is what's considered an S year every other year? There's there's an slap on an S the number. So the phone typically don't look that difference. But allow up rates are internal. So we'll have to see how what apple does make its case for an upgrade. I'm a little scared to ask do we have any idea? How much these phones are going to cost us? Pricings all over the place. I think the fact that there are these three phones, and this this cheaper phone is rumored iphone X or of the name still not clear yet. That's most intriguing device because I think that's that's gonna so set the pace for what the other fields in price that last year obviously headlines for that thousand dollar iphone. I don't think that's gonna change that might even get pricier. But we'll see if there's a there's a break in the lower end of the at least with a starting price of these phones. All right. Thank you so much that has seen its Roger Chang. He's also a great follow on Twitter. And I'm sure we'll be keeping everybody posted today. Twenty four KRLD time to check on your money. Let's check in with John Tucker. All right, Scott you talking about apple let's go there in the pre market up about three tenths of a percent. Otherwise, stocks are pretty much mixed today.

"WBZ news time three forty one. The biggest iphone release ever expected to take place this afternoon during annuals apples, and you will fall product event WWF as Rodman spoke in depth with Roger Chan the executive editor of c not news. Tell me what you're hearing in the grapevine. Yeah. So the the speculation is for three new iphones similar to last year. To I found that look similar to last year's iphone ten very same the same details. Quality screen, and then the most intriguing is at third iphone, which is going to be bigger than the beta lashes, iphone ten but cheaper. So. Just how cheaper how much less is the phone still remains to be seen? But definitely a couple of new Rickles for the launch for this year. Any hint as to what some of the new features might be that will entice buyers. You can imagine that the camera will get an upgrade they're going to spend a lot of time talking to the camera not a huge amount of features. That been serviced spoken about really. It's really more about this larger sized iphone ten successor as well as this cheaper iphone that that's got a lot of people interested in what's going to happen. And when it gets to these larger screens are we reaching a maximum size. Or can they still get bigger? They can still get bigger. The biggest one this is like the most expensive. They're super premium. One is a is rumored to be a six point five inch display, which is really one of the bigger smartphones out there bigger than Samsung's jumbo galaxy note nine. What they managed to do is squeeze into a slightly smaller body because they've removed the Bengals just like last year's iphone ten but still going to be a pretty big phone. It's going to be pretty cumbersome to hold for folks who are guess comfortable holding the old seven plus or eight plus should be that big a deal. But yeah. Soldiers are getting bigger people want more screen more screen real estate. And so I think apple just feeding that demand. How important is this launch this release of the new iphones to the company? There is absolutely critical to apple iphones makeup still a majority of the revenue for the company and really is the the keystone product lineup. Apple is ramping up its services business. You know, things like it's apple music. I tunes the app store but allow that flows through iphone if you don't own an iphone, you're not likely to describe your any services. So really the the key to apple success is the continued success of the on franchise. Also, hearing chatter that beyond the iphone apple will finally released a redesigned version of the chapel watch and similar to the iphone ten and it'll have a tack in a larger display by shaving off the vessels and the new iphone set to be launched at about one o'clock this afternoon. We'll..

The USB implementers forum reminds consumers that USB logos are displayed on certified USB products. So the next time you're shopping for reliable, USB charger, cable or device. Look for the logos get the whole story at enabling USB dot org. With time. That's pretty good. We were like Scott. Yeah. I mean, at least got wasn't on the show to then it'd be like six hours over. Anyway, thanks for joining us for the recording the audio podcast. I'm jumping into the chat now. Like I always do pull out your questions and comments. Keep the conversation going. Needless to say, we have allowed to talk about the phone, but there's actually more than you people in the chat wanna hear more about the watch. Years here for a second. There was a galaxy homes speaker and the galaxy, why tomorrow's episode. Tomorrow. No shows cancel. Good. I can take over there. You go. I don't know. It can't. Watch bid. It wasn't a huge supplies, but we did wrestle see like a ton of leaks coming ahead of time. They, they have their own, watch dead. Scratch what I just said. I mean, the intriguing to me, they were. They were promising multiple days on a single charge with an LT batter. That part wasn't clearly, but they said several days on a single charge, which that's that's impressive if they can pull that off. Right? No, I mean, yeah. I mean, I, I mean, I guess if you're doing sleep tracking with it, but but realistically, like you're probably going to be taking it off anyway. You're not using your watch with the same, you know, constant resource claiming as he would for a phone. You're just don't hit a watch from the watches. Smaller has a small battery and it's never really like this eople watch really can't last more than a day, maybe a day and a half, right? Doing things with it, though. There's an LT connection. So I am kind of curious if that claim would extend to using data. That's yeah, that's what I'm gonna run because this thing once you put LT data only it's ninety minutes maybe so. Nonstop, of course stilts like, so I have to wonder how or if they were able to figure out balancing tees and on jeopardy on that. Also, it'll be great to see the watch in person. I haven't seen it today. I came right back to the office, but it sounds at least like it's very similar to your watches for the rotating dial and they big deal about it being circular. Yeah, it's interesting that they, they basically have scrapped the gear name the gear names failure now and it just it's galaxy watch. It decided so what's their home thing isn't galaxy home. Yeah, yeah. So maybe they're just trying to like from. Galaxy? Yeah, that's true. Yes or no kind of weird. Like last year is just perfect marketing thing, right? It's a galaxy of devices, but why didn't they do that before they have like a galaxy fridge or a galaxy dishwasher. Fara galaxy sued. Sorry. They did make smart suits, do they? Yeah. Oh, all right. Yeah. Standing Adam at CAS like last year the before. Okay. The like I know what I was in career two years ago and I saw galaxy suits. They went out smart more like Brooks brothers. They're just like nice kind of expensive. All right, Brian questions. Yeah. Can I leave the sea of been here since ten o'clock this morning? No, no, we're almost done. You're you're there. Forever of couple of good comments are wallop says the galaxy note looked so good. It might rip me away from the apple ecosystem. Strong. I would say, wait till next year. I think the biggest, Samsung changes. We're gonna see your next year in with banal agree as tight as we galaxy. And yeah, with like the in under screen. Lorraine have recall it reader like we're on the front. Yeah, like five g you know this full phone even when we talked to a Samsung executor the keynote. Like that's what he was saying. You know that they have tons and tons of innovation coming up. So if you think the note nine is great, you might wanna just, you know, Samsung gonna give it a long time partner. We've seen the galaxy phones coming out. I market with Qualcomm next generation processor, so it's very possible that Samsung will also nail an exclusive. The galaxy s time having you know the first Qualcomm ultrasonic fingerprint reader in display. That's something that I would kind of expect. I would be more surprised if that didn't happen. I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if they end up with the first five phone record. Five g. mass-market phone. Yeah. I mean, I just I think it's just gonna be a race with that, like, but it's, you know, it's the timing. The latest timing. Qualcomm is given me for phones is like second quarter which would fit. If like the s. tens usually like March, she usually launches towards the end of the right snub would be, I would say there might be like a one off five g. specific phone that no one wants to buy that. Motorola thing with the relief. Lizzy feet three with a Moto Maude that won't be available until sometime in twenty nineteen. He put this big honker on the back of phone. It's just, you know, that seems like a play for Verizon to be able to claim that it was. I two five g. thing, but it is not a five gene abled phone and keep in mind those first four g phones. Remember the very first one was to thunderbolt and that was a terrible terrible built of demonstrate the connection. And other than that, it was a terrible phone bribe. Got. Moving on. Cody Williams wants to know with that four thousand million power battery. What is that? What's the benchmark? They tout the all day battery, but what about for a heavy user? Where does that fall off start to happen with usage? Yeah, I think that's a great question, and it's one that I can't wait to answer seen. It has a pretty rigorous battery test with video drain and will kinda hit that thing to three times until we get some pretty consistent answers. Basically what what we've seen for the galaxy s. nine plus which was sort of comparable, I guess the most comparable in terms of screen size and the modern processor. This dog eat forty five is that you're still going to want to charge it for a charging cycle you overnight. But really it just needs to hours at some point during your day. So if I were to wake up at six in the morning and late night and stay out until one in the morning, I would not feel confident that my phone would last. You know, you start seeing those double digits. So the single digits on battery. Reserves, and you start getting very, very nervous and let's face it. I'm not ever going to use the power saving. I am the person who's turning off all the connections and dimming the screen. Okay, I can get home in thirty minutes. I'm not worried so it I wanna see if it's going to push it to that next level. But at some point within probably twenty four to thirty six hour period, you know, you're still gonna wanna recharge your phone. APEC asks, is Android wear getting a refresh or updates, or the watch is just gonna Fe away. I'm actually he's actually, this was actually another ties in watch. Oh, good. So point that out. Yeah. So this is not actually Android wear for Andrew, where is getting rebranded where less leave and we'll probably hear more about it whenever Google hose event years. One of the fall October probably Tober. Yeah, over here a little bit more about that than. Yeah, as you said this, the galaxy watch is not is not Android wear or where. Yeah. Yeah, they just yes.

"The three fifty nine is sponsored by USB technology. The USB implementers forum reminds consumers that USB logos are displayed on certified USB products. So the next time you're shopping for reliable, USB charger, cable or device. Look for the logos get the whole story at enabling USB dot org. Welcome to the three fifty nine on Roger Chan I'm Ben FOX ribbon. I'm Alfred hang CNN is out with its review of the surface go and while it's decent casual computing device, our own debt Ackerman says that the supposedly affordable to in one isn't actually that cheap. It actually does start at three ninety nine which you know on on the surface haha is. Is a decent price, but then you tack on the keyboard cover which cost one hundred twenty nine dollars stylists, which is one hundred dollars and more ram, which is another one hundred fifty dollars. Then all of a sudden you've got pretty pricey device. Nice, try Microsoft, but you're not tricking me on this one. When I think when they first announced like, oh, that's a pretty good price. I'll probably get it. And then I saw a review of it where it was like, oh, if you actually want it to be the thing you know, says it is that's an extra like three hundred dollars. So yeah, it's actually more than three hundred dollars three hundred, which which means that like maybe at that point, you're in the market for surface pro, which is, you know, obviously more expensive. The thing the Dan mentions though is that the surface go is not particularly new concept from Microsoft's. There is a surface three from twenty fifteen, and that was also ten inch. So maybe it's better different. I don't know. Yeah, I don't have problems. I don't know what this competes against is pad pro competitors and competitor. Yeah, I think it's more pad competitor the case. Like I'd rather just got the ipad. Okay. That's you. You you Roger. Let's talk about t. mobile. I posted blowout numbers yesterday, particularly with phone subscriber growth. Once again, leading the industry in that metric before poorly. I got a chance to talk with CFO Braxton Carter who told me that they weren't expecting to raise prices for the dead plans anytime soon. Now that's important because we've seen over the last few weeks AT Reisen and sprint all either introduced new plans or new tears of plans that have been more expensive. So for for a while, now this has been like surf golden age for bargain seekers in the wireless world. But it seemed like this was going to change bellies t. Mobile's kind of holding steady and saying they're not raising prices and they're kind of the, they're the ones that changed everything up. They wanna keep getting in new costumers by, are they making a lot of money to like they're they've done well with getting customers, but is it showing on their bottom line? Yeah, they're so their profits were up your year of certain in particular service revenue, which is. A pretty key metric there that was also they're, they're basically growing by adding new customers. And that's basically what the CFO said was that they didn't want to sacrifice any kind of long-term gains for short-term bump of like getting more money out of customers in the near term. Can you tell us a bit about why they would want to merge with sprint? Ultimately, it's about spectrum and then sort of the the assets sprint has that they can use to expand their five g. network. They talked a lot about five g. yesterday and the combination of sprints assets with team Mobile's assets would give them a deeper, broader narrower. So wait, what's the catch though? Why aren't they increasing their prices? I, I don't think it's because they're very nice. No, it's not on nice. It's about customer growth. They think that if the keep the prices lower, they can keep customer growth going, which has been true. They've led the industry in customer growth for eighteen consecutive quarters. So. Working. They're still number three though, right? Near still number three. There varieties of in terms of the base there still pretty far off them for is eighteen. So they think there's a lot of runway to grow. Nice. Lastly, pop quiz, you tell me which was the best selling console in June. I mean, I'll just. Don't do it. You know, switch Nintendo switch with you. You're totally wrong. Shocking surprise don't believe it. It's the s. classic which was brought back at the end of the month. And that's what I think is most impressive to me is it was the top selling council despite coming on June twenty-ninth. Basically three days left in the month outsold all the other ones. Obviously, from a sales perspective, a revenue perspective, Sony's PS four actually was the top selling. Of course. I mean, it makes the most sense that they sold a ton of units considering those only forty dollars in the last time I was available for sale. It was like everybody was scrambling to get it because they thought they wouldn't be able to get it again. Although I have to say my buddy by one, we turn it on and also a realized I didn't really like any of the games mostly. Yeah. Anyways, we're only storage because I've seen it. I'm Richard jank Ben FOX Ruben. I'm out for dang, thanks for listening.

"The. Three fifty nine Roger Chan I'm Alfred hang Uber temporarily. Halted its Thomas car program after one of his vehicles Hilda possession in Tempe ARizona. This marks the first they tell from self driving car accident on public road. What do you think this means is this this is pretty bad, right? Well, they had to completely halted. I think that this was inevitable for any self driving car testing program. Eventually, there was going to be there would be fatality for it to happen to a company that has had so many, you know, negative headlines. Yeah. Yeah. I think this just piles on top of, I think if this happened like Ford which is also testing its own self drivers Google away. I, I think this would still be like a historic moment in tech for sure. But like to happen, Uber, like definitely adds to all the controversies going on with the company. Now, it's important to note that this, at least the chronicle after dill but fall reporting, they talked with the police chief, the police chief who said that the way the woman merged the shadows that basically no driver either Thomas or human probably would been able to see her. Yeah, this is something that's been brought up at like the moments and self driving cars were kind of like announced the idea of if it gets into a car accident, like who's at fault and things like that. There's gonna be a lot of interesting developments here. I also am interested in because the argument for self driving cars has always been that they're much safer right than than a person driving. So now that this has happened, I don't know if that, like opinion. Shifted at all. Brian, I think there were a lot of concerns. Maybe some folks were arguing safer, but I think a lot of people the public had fears about one truly was Sater. Our next up eighteen T and Time Warner are about to set up, but kick off their legal battle with Justice department. They trial begins tomorrow of our colleague. Maggie ridden has a nice current razors explaining why Tintin Time Warner one emerge. Why this court case is so important for the future of median for streaming TV. Essentially, this was a surprise that the Justice department actually blocked the deal. This is considered a vertical integration, whereas two copies dope, each other are gained together. What wasn't the original reporting though that they decided to block it? Because you know, President Trump wasn't a fan of CNN and all that, yes. The interesting thing is the judge for this trial Oricon thrown out any references to Trump. The basically eighteen initially tried to get access to some memos and between the. White House and just department. That's not part of the case. The really just gonna be arguing on the merits of whether or not this deal should go through. All right. Lastly, we learn more about Cambridge Analytica the firm that worked with the Donald Trump campaign last year after undercover report from the case channel four. Now the executives from the data from caught on video offering us everything from sex workers and spreading false information to discredit political rivals. It's just like another step in this Facebook drama, craziest thing about that report is what is any of that have to do with data analytics, nothing right. It's basically will just basically do whatever it takes to help your political candidate win it just like were a company that uses data analytics from social media. Also sex workers and blackmail it's just like if there's any like sign that they're shady activity going on there and like what they on top of what they had already done with Facebook. This like this kind of just like a blaring like and just. Reminder. This is the firm that basically took data from a Facebook third party app to politically to target better target Facebook users for the Donald Trump camp. Did you see Cambridge Luca's response to that report? Basically, like the video was taken out of context said that we purposely said something so exaggerated to save the person that we were talking to from embarrassment. Like hypothetical scenarios, like we would never do that. We just did that as kind of a joke that really. Yeah, sure. All right, only source is out. It's Roger Chang. I'm Alfred.
