"Back and look at my life and he'll angry angry at the decisions that my parents made feel angry about the decisions that I made and you know I think for a lot of us when we think of these moments of frustration or anger from past where maybe we should have forgiven but we haven't yet notice the charge comes up for you as though it feels like it was yesterday right.

"In You know Ways you can be more mindful of their experience in it but I do think it starts with that education piece and then also is apparent knowing again intimately what each child needs in how their unique from their brother sister So like you said dinner table knowing that one child is GonNa Struggle Mentally with that seemingly simple environment task of just sitting in ebbing have conversation. Right where other civilians? It may not be difficult for them at all and so knowing what is that. Look like just because it's easy for one. We don't punish the other because it's hard for them. We know that their skills are in different places. We have an understanding of exactly what skills are lay there. What's getting in their way and how to accommodate them. Yeah IN IN SIBLINGS. That are close in age. Maybe of a nerve to call sibling that starts to imitate kind of inappropriate behaviors of another sibling. Who has narrowed diversity and you know that this nurse Kid doesn't need that combination at the dinner table. Or you know how do we especially and I would assume this probably goes for kind of younger kids right. They WanNa do what big brothers doing. And it's okay you know okay. You know air quotes here for that child but then expectations different. How do we parent that? How do we raise the bar for our kids? And we know that they can. Yeah so I think one question that would be helpful to always ask is why whatever it is that I'm requiring one child to do and I understand the other child can't and so I'm not requiring them. Is it really important for either one of the children to do because there are some like very low hanging fruits that we have these preconceived ideas about like steak dinner time for example when my daughter was at the place where she literally could not sit still for one second? She was kind of buzzing around the entire room the whole dinner time but we were happy with that. Because she wasn't in the rooms she was still in our space and we would offer her chair in a lot of time. She'd say no and she just kind of move and eat Rueben and my son at that point. They were much younger than said. Well I WANNA move. Can I get up and move and I was like sure why not like? What is the harm in letting him.

So exciting Alford. Do you ever buy anything on prime mostly by useless stuff on prime day last year I bought a cot it was half off? It was like a half off Kat. Okay. I don't know why don't use it anymore. And then I think the year before that, I bought a cat tree for like thirty bucks. That's a pretty good. Catch that catch Ray also. It's eighty dollars like when it's not on sales. So there are some good deals on prime day. There are also some stupid deals on prime day. You can just rest assure that they're going to be a lot of deals. And I'm sure people are going to be really excited about it. It's one of the new things that's going to be happening this year is that I know you're gonna love hearing about this. Amazon is planning on making prime day more of like an experience.

"If you take that number plus their wives and families, and whatever that you have two or three times that, whatever that number of people is not a small place. Right. But that is the camp of believe ice. And they're, they're reference point for the rest of the camp now, you need to follow me here. You got to pretend you're Jewish you. You do understand how hard the rabbis, try to keep what they believe the law, say they often accused him of splitting hairs but they try very hard to do what it literally says, we could learn some lessons from them, perhaps, the camp of Judah was instructed to camp east of alleviates, that sounds simple, but it's not the camp of Rueben. Was instructed to camp south of the of the Levi's no problem. This. If you're going to be strictly obedient to the instructions of the Torah that denies you the opportunity to camp, southeast of the of the of the tabernacle believe I'ts because if you're southeast, you're not east or south, you're in between and only the cardinal directions are deigned for the camping. So you have to figure out how wide the Levi's are camping and stay within that range if you're gonna stay east of elites. Follow me now and you're lengthened you take proportion to whatever you need for relation. So here's the key here, the leave I'ts. The camp of Judas on the east side, there's symbol is the lion. Incidentally, the lion of the tribe of Judah, and so they can camp as wide as Levi's of steak dot for themselves as long, whatever that is, as long as they're east of that, obedient that same. Likewise, Ruben his symbol is the man. Incidentally, so there again, they can camp as wide as Levi. Staked out, no wider, and they take whatever depth they need for their for their people. If somebody tries to camp between these two he's neither east north south.

Can tech giants like Facebook and Google really be broken up? (The 3:59, Ep. 569)

"Tonight, a road king. The calls companies like Facebook and Google to break or getting more vocal. Then you mega hit a nice breakdown of what's going on. Realistically Canis copies. Actually get broken up. Yeah. Absolutely. They absolutely can get broken up. This is something that people should definitely be paying attention to there are a lot of elected officials state attorneys, general that are looking into this. The FTC is looking into this. So there's so much more attention, that's being paid to this possibility. But the caveat here is that it's very difficult to break up these giant companies government does not do it very frequently. When was the last big one? So the last big one was probably AT and T and that was decades ago. There was an attempt to break up, Microsoft that was earlier than that, and it failed basically. And that was after well over a decade of effort to break up, Microsoft or argument that they were using windows monopoly off to our monopoly. And the government got as far as. Actually a judge said, yes. This company needs to be broken up into two companies, and then on a peel got reversed and soft was able to stay as a single company. Well, we can imagine this getting more vocal, there's gonna be more rhetoric around this, especially as the presidential elections, ramping up, Senator Elizabeth Warren has talked about breaking up. I think she was the first to talk about breaking up apple actually, and really identifying the powered exerts its apps or. Yeah. That's a really interesting one. We're talking a lot about platform dominance here. So Amazon uses this platform dominance, where invite smaller sellers in an ask them to sell stuff, and then it competes directly against them form apple app store. It's the same situation, Spotify his complained to European regulators about this, where they're like book, apple slows down our updates or. Well, it's down it charges thirty percent fee charges. A fee on top of the service, they provide and offers competing service, right? So, and that's the issue is that Spotify feels like they're being unfairly treated have to compete against apple music at the same time. So. From from talking to a lot of experts. It seems that at the very least more regulation is expected to becoming you wouldn't anticipate this much attention being drawn to this area without something being done. So maybe starting with the conversation of tech break-up, but ultimately, a lot of these companies have gotten a free pass for a long time. And that might be ending, and what that looks like could be significant. So, yeah, definitely this is one to pay attention to just fascinating. How these were basically darling sweethearts of the American corporate world for the line for the longest time. And now really the ties it turned, I tape marks the one year anniversary of when the Obama era net neutrality laws were struck down by the SEC. What's happened in that time? Well, what has happened in that time as a as anything happened? So not a lot really pays or still coming a holding pattern and parliament is you could make the argument that, that this is proof that neutrality did really have an impact, but the reality is, I think a lot of folks companies, or a holding pattern because there are all kinds of legal issues still up in the air, individual states like California trying to pass their own neutrality laws. We've got Senate Democrats right now trae force vote of the save the internet act, which house passed last year. This is an act that would have restored power to the really right now, the debate is over who gets to be the regulatory watchdog is at the FCC Federal Communications Commission, or the FTC the Federal Trade Commission, most consumer advocates argue that the FTC just really last teeth really doesn't have the force of power to go after companies if they are prioritizing traffic. Well, this is also getting held up in the courts to there's some element of that going on. Yeah. There's the long term play for a lot of these folks, hold up in court until administration Trump lease office. Hopefully, get another democratic president who installs see majority that is prone to charity. And we start all over again. I can't wait. Sounds really exciting. All right scene.

Our E3 breakdown: Microsoft's Project Scarlett looks crazy powerful (The 3:59, Ep. 568)

"The. Tonight on what you're saying. I'm Ben FOX Rueben and Oscar Ellis, E three is upon us. The big video game confab is out. No way. We've got a whole team out there covering it. Oscar you're here, though, covering all of the action. What was the most pressing? You've seen so far. It's granted we're only about two days into it. It was by far Kiana Reeves so John, Wakeham selfie. He appears in the twenty seven twenty seventy seven trailer. And sure enough, he shows up at, at three does a little spiel has just roar of applause, and announces that the game is coming out next year. And you said this was at a presentation press conference held in which they announced new hardware, like a new XBox coming twenty twenty project scarlet, but you said, can't raise got more plausible that it was huge even he was taken aback. I mean ease superstar, even he was like, whoa, right? And everybody just loves them. There's cheers, there was a guy who said your breathtaking. And that guy's going to get a free copy of the game from CD project, grit. Because he heckled he heckled cannery canneries been on a pretty Sean, Ron John wick three obviously has a lot of fans of I wanted to give to always be my maybe that Netflix film, in which canneries plays version of canneries that we think he is, which is kind of amazing. But back to back to you three product scarlet we have to talk about the next XBox AK graphics. One hundred twenty days for second salt say drive. Would you think about it, it seems that for this next gen consoles deceits us is solid state drives? Yeah. That is just going to make everything faster when it comes to loading two big areas that's going to be the key thing graphics. Wise course it's going to be better. They didn't show anything. But obviously it's gonna be better. PS live is going to be better. But solid state drive is going to get a new television, right? Ak graphics. You're going to need to upgrade your forte TV or so. We're, we're in for four k content. Yeah. If you want, if you want the eight k is a bit about feature per right though. 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.

The Nordic Paradox

The Indicator from Planet Money

The Nordic Paradox

"Everyone. It's cardiff. Welcome to the indicator from planet money today show. We've got reporter Pamela boy cough on again. Pamela, you have a follow up for us on a story that you did on the indicator, just a few weeks ago? I do. Thanks for having me back on Carter. Always a pleasure. So Cardiff after I went to Japan to see how the government is doing trying to get more women into the workforce. I wanted to look at a country with a lot more experience in promoting equality in work, so I went to Norway. But as for Norway, I mean, it has this reputation as being sort of paradise for gender equality. So I think some people might know that Norway offers generous paid maternity. Leave has universal daycare, the prime minister of Norway is a woman, and half of her cabinet are women and also Norway ranks in second place on major international measure of gender equality. All of these things are true. But what I found out when I went there is that Norwegian business has this dirty little secret. There aren't very many female leaders like executives, you mean like executives only twenty two percent. Scent of senior executives, Norwegian companies are women at the CEO level, women are just one out of every ten and should note that this is a problem that is shared by nearby countries who also have similar social policies like the ones that doorway has so countries like Sweden Finland and Iceland. And some people have even started calling this d- Nordic paradox, despite their reputation as bashed of gender equality. The percentage of female executives in these countries are not that different from here where about twenty six percent of executives and senior managers are women, that's according to the NGO catalyst. Okay. So today, the indicator, then why is it that in countries that sit atop the global rankings of gender equality there? So few female leaders in their businesses. Support for this podcast and the following message come from flat. Iron books publisher of fact, fullness, President Barack Obama says it's a hopeful book about the potential for human progress. Read the New York Times bestseller. Fact, fullness, now available where books are sold. Support also comes from Jimmy, the regulated exchange making it easy to add bitcoin, and other crypto currencies to your portfolio. Protecting your investments with oversight and state of the art cybersecurity open a free account at Jim ni- dot com slash indicator. I wanted to learn more about gender equality policy in Norway. So I went straight to the top. My name is putting the shaking on that and minister culture and equal rights Nowy. It's literally minister Grandes job to promote gender equality in Norway. And she believes all these expensive policies like government funded parental leave universal daycare, they pay off more than eighty percent of Norwegian women who are in their prime working years. Participate in the workforce, and that compares to only a little over seventy percent here in the United States, and all those women, they help make Norway's economy bigger and grow faster. I think that's the main reason for the Nordic countries to be as rich stay are people are participating, and they are contributing into to society, and contributing with their ideas. Okay. So Norway has high female participation in the workforce, but it is not translating to high numbers of women in business leadership for country that put so much money and energy into promoting gender equality. That's surprising disappointing. I think and economists of course, want to know if it's something about the policies themselves that might be holding women back from those leadership. Roles cardiff. It looks like three factors are likely contributing to this long, maternity leaves a lack of buy-in from the private sector and gender segregated workforce. Okay. Let's start with maternity leave in Norway. Many mothers and uptaking more than eight months off work after child is born, and this is paid for by the government. Women full spec in the development of their salary while they're having kids, even though we have the right law, and the oldest structure, on should say that it shouldn't be like that economic research across the number of countries has shown that when college educated women, take long, maternity leaves, it can negatively impact their future earnings and their career growth. One theory on why this happens is it managers and coworkers start thinking that women are less committed to their jobs. Many of the same studies say they're a bunch of positive effects for moderate length paid maternity leave, which I feel card if I have to remind everyone not required by law here in the US. We are the only major developed country that does not provide mothers with universal access to paid maternity leave at us for Norway. We just want to be very clear. We are absolutely not saying that longer. Maternity leaves are bad or that they make women less. Committed to their jobs were reporting the effects on co workers on managers, which is they sometimes perceive that women who take those long, maternity leaves are less committed to their jobs minister grandees idea for a way to help with this problem is to make paternity leave longer in Norway, the parental leave. The government pays for includes a quote, daddy quota. It's a certain number of weeks that can only be used by fathers, this was just extended. Now it's fifteen to nineteen weeks gets important to share his if the kids to have a normal relationship to both the parents, but it's also important been people hire woman, in higher, man fishing, though, that the they aren't going to be a difference in their participation at workforce. Even if they're going to have kids, this might sound like a nice idea. But Norway has actually had some form of the daddy quotas since nineteen ninety three and so far, the research does not show that it has helped narrow the Jenner. Pig app or promote female advancement in the workplace but leaves are longer now and more men are taking them. So it's something that economists wanna keep studying some people argue if long, maternity leaves are hurting women's career prospect, maybe that's a sign. It's the companies that need to change. Maybe they need to get better at reintegrating women when they come back from eternity leave or change the corporate culture. So women aren't penalized for taking that leave to begin with. And that brings us to the second factor behind the shortage of female executives in Norway, a lack of commitment from the corporations themselves, the state is so involved in promoting gender equity. Some researchers think it led the corporate sector to slack off to nodes corporate sector as a government, you got this. So we'll leave it to you, and we don't have to worry. We're not gonna take here. You're early on it. Okay. The government even passed a law saying corporate boards of public companies must have at least forty percent women, I talked to Barrett's fence in about this. She. She's a prominent female executive in Norway. And I think it's still lack of focus from the boards. Even if have forty percent women into the boards of all the stock, listed companies in Norway. The women in those sports haven't done the jump to get in more women on into positions. In the ROY Vincent is a senior executive at a mobile payment company called VIPs and forty two percent of the managers and executives at VIPs are women. So it says at one of the flaws in the way that people in Norway used to hire it was male executives would hire people just like themselves. And she hopes that, that's going to change one of the things veeps does to change this is they focus on recruiting. They think carefully about how they write job ads where they placed them. They insist that for every job. The final round includes one man and one woman, ole miss searching off of the population. There are so many potential very, very good leaders that never get into illicit positions. Okay. In the third lash factor we're gonna discuss is the gender segregated workforce in Norway. A lot of jobs women, choose are in the public sector, for example, civil service where maybe. Perceive. It's easier to balance work life and home life. There are a lot more female leaders in the public sector than in business, but private sector jobs tend to pay better. So this segregated makes the gender pay gap. Worse when women do go into the private sector, the tendencies jobs like human resources or marketing jobs that are less likely to lead to becoming a CEO, this sort of gender. Segregation tends to start earlier as early as when people are in school. The equality minister of Norway minister 'Grande, she really wants to understand why this happens to begin with, so we have no big survey going on. The gives us some idea, we can book with the kids to actually choose, but they won't and they'll to the society suspect to Barrett's fence in the executive at VIPs. Also thinks it is really important because there aren't enough women going into technology. And she wants to see the industry. Start to nurture female leaders the same way it has from men role model. Are standing up and saying going to you don't need to nerd, you know, you can see the big trends, you can see the top of the company and, and be into top leadership. Because knowing about technology is crucial going forward because technology are changing this site. She's not just talking about Norway there. She thinks we need to focus on creating the next generation of female tech, executives everywhere. All these issues parental leave corporate involvement gender workplace syndication their issues for every country that wants to Norway has been of head start the worth noting. Also along to go.

The OnePlus 7 Pro reveals a notch-free future (The 3:59, Ep. 561)

"The. Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Ruben. And I'm here with mobile senior reporter Charlotte Tipton jar thanks for being here. Thanks for having me shar was at the one plus launch event yesterday for the one plus seven pro it's new six hundred seventy dollar flagship device is the first phone coming to the US. That includes a pop-up camera for selfish instead of a notch or a whole punch or whatever to charming first question to you is what do you think of that change? Do you think that it's significant enough or it's worth it to have, you know, like just that full screen? What are your thoughts? You know? I think it could go either way I think for a lot of people having that full screen is is awesome. Oneplus? Did they told me hundreds of prototypes before they decided on the pop up camera because they were really trying to figure out what the best way to kind of have this full screen. They had pulled users and talk to people, and what everybody wanted was an immersive screen, and when you're using your phone, if you think about it, you're using the screen all the time, you're using that selfie camera. You know, infrequently. So for them. Like that Papa camera is all about the screen. You know, we've seen a lot of notches though. And I feel like at a certain point that you stop noticing that they're even the air. So I think it'll be interesting to see like after using something like this where there is. No, not if it makes it harder to go back to something with a notch like the iphone or. If you don't really notice it. Do you have a personal preference yourself between like a notch or a hole punch? I don't know how much time you got to spend with like the Samsung as ten. Yeah. I mean, I haven't I don't really personally have a big preference. I think it kind of depends on what you're doing with it. I don't watch a ton video on my phone a lot of people do and that's kind of one of the areas where it could be distracting if you're part of the videos cut out. You know, like for what I'm doing scrolling through Twitter and Instagram and things like that. It's not quite as big. Let's talk about like durability for a second here as far as like having a tiny element on the phone pop up pop down again, did they tell you far as like how durable? This is likely. It is that something like that could break off. Yeah. So they they did a lot of tests. They had kind of sent whenever a phone comes out. There's a ton of torture tests that it goes through and they created some special ones to test the camera so like for one they had a barrel, and they dropped the phone with the camera open into the barrel. I one hundred fifty times and then each time they dropped it. They spin it seventy five times, I believe, and then they had another one where they had basically box with Dustin it, and they like through the phone in it opened and closed. I think three hundred thousand times which is kind of the the bar for like this last five years is what they're saying. So they when they first working on this. They had a version that had kind of a smaller motor it took up less space. But it just wasn't strong enough. Or durable enough. So then they ended up having to go with a bigger motor which meant they essentially had to redesign the phone redesign everything on the phone to kind of deal with that. But that is what they really think is going to make this durable. And they showed a video during their vet of like, a forty nine pounds of cement being kind of hoisted, and what it was being held on was the camera module. Really? Yeah. I mean, and obviously that's a video. So it's not like we saw in real life to be like. Wow. Look that you know. But it's interesting. They really are trying to say, hey, this is durable. It's not going to pop off the first time you so that so I want to introduce apple little bit more into the conversation. And what do you think apple is going to do this year that could get people more excited or more interested in the iphone, maybe get them to buy it or upgraded more? Frequently the is there something on the horizon, particularly this year that you expect that that might generate a little bit more interest. I I don't know. It's kind of hard to say like the things this year that everybody's really excited about like foldable screens five G, those are not things that we're going to see from apple this year. Like, we're just not. So it is really kind of hard to figure out what it is that they are going to come out with that really gets people to upgrade in maybe more like a services bundle or things that that make you say I need the iphone because I want this. I want the apple card. I want the new TV service. I want whatever. It's going to work better on my iphone, hardware wise. I don't know what it is that they could do that really exciting. Or really interesting. That's kind of a bummer, but but it's still early. It's only may the phone there. There are obviously rumors all the time. There hasn't been anything. That's like really like earth shattering or yet. But it's still it's early. Anyway, if you want to read more about these stories, check them out on CNN on Ben FOX, Rueben Charlotte's have gained.

The drumbeat to break up Facebook gets louder (The 3:59, Ep. 559)

"The. The three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Rueben. I'm living seems that the new cause of the day is calling to break up. Facebook two of the latest prominent figures to jump on this bandwagon. Our Facebook, cofounder Chris Hughes and president candidate Kamala. Harris, let's setback for a second here and ask Alfred what are some of the reasons offered to break up this company? I mean, the biggest reason a lot of people have been arguments. Facebook is way too big for its own good. There's issues with them owning Instagram and what's app a lot of people. I've always seen these Facebook satisfied. I'm leaving Facebook. But you can still find me on Instagram, and it's kind of like they're owned by the same company and it's frustrating like you might be going from drinking soda to diet soda. But at the end of the day, it's like all your money still going to them. Right. So there's this huge concern that they are like a monopoly in social network gang would like what what exactly like what are their competitors? You got. You got Snapchat. But yeah, you're right. Like, the other ones it's interesting so Facebook, and their defense has said that they are non monopoly, but not because they don't say, Twitter, Snapchat, or Snapchat, competitor. So they say they're competing with Google and Amazon, which are not social networks. So it's interesting that that's what Facebook views as it's competitors. Anytime. They mentioned, you know, there are the the average person has about ten different apps on their phones and Facebook is only one of them or something like that. The problem is that they always ignore the fact that you know, there's Facebook then there's scrimped and there's the what's app apple and there is Facebook messenger. Then if you really want again to Facebook light, if you don't wanna use the Facebook app, so they might not be monopoly in the sense of, you know, Facebook itself, but I think that's why there's a call to break. There's so many things Facebook owns that. Even though the average person has ten apps on their devices like half of those are from Facebook. All right. But let's think about this is really. The likelihood that anything even close to that would actually happen. I mean, it's possible. I mean GE broke up, and I think t- broker. Yeah. I think they're trying to make that argument for Facebook. Now, I don't know why they point to Google Amazon us or competitors probably from digital advertising. So we'll see if that happens next. And this is this could be really significant the US pre court this morning said an antitrust case can move forward against apple the suit claims that Apple's total control of the app store is forcing prices higher since the company takes thirty percent. Cut on apps sales costing customers more money a win for the plaintiff could potentially opened up to allow more apps stores or direct abseil or direct app. Sales to phone users. Yeah, that sounds pretty big. Yeah. A part of this for Apple's also security concern too. I mean, there's a reason why they keep it limited to the app store. They like guard that a lot they make sure that there's no militias apps getting on. There. And they've done a pretty good job at that. I mean, that's why they have that reputation versus Google play where it's much easier to get on that being said though, you know, the Google play also takes a cut of anything that goes onto its apps store. That's why you know, you can't download fortnight from the Google play store. But yeah, it's interesting that to see this case moving on. And. Yeah, like you said if it gets decided that apple can't be doing what it's doing. Currently. I mean one there's gonna be an issue of security, but you know, your apps could also be cheaper. Yeah. And we'll see if that has any direct impact on what we were just talking about with Facebook where consumers would be able to sue for regulatory changes. Last rule is another company that's weathering calls to break up amid this blowback our own Richard Nieva sat down with Google's ad chief to discuss user privacy. Alfred what was quick takeaway from this big thing that stuck out to me was he the Google head of advertising arguing about why all these privacy settings are not on by default. Yeah. And saying. That was a good thing. Yeah. Which is research showing that is not true. Like most people when they get a browser or anything like that. They usually use the default settings unless you know about privacy settings. Good chance, you're not even going to change it. They mentioned that you know, there had been about two two billion visits this year to it's a privacy settings. But only about twenty million people actually changed it. So, yeah, he he's making this argument Google doing all these things to add privacy settings. But the problem is like there is you to find there's somewhat easy to find. But they're not on by default. So it's kind of like unless you go and do that on your own which most people don't do these privacy settings are really only their name only either way we're at a time.

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.

Yes, Facebook is still tracking you (The 3:59, Ep. 541)

"The. Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Ruben I'm offering. So it ends up deactivating Facebook account to stop the social network from tracking. You doesn't work. Alfred you looked into this tell us which found out. Yeah. So I have been deactivating my account every time I logged out of Facebook and set of just you know, closing the window or anything like that. Because I thought that would put a pause on data collection. Anytime I'm not on Facebook turns out that is not true. The only way that Facebook really stops collecting date on you is if you've permanently delete it. Now, a lot of people do need Facebook accounts. Like, I do because I have to sign up for these two workshops every week to get on a college campus. So I have to have my Facebook count. So I thought I'd just reactivated for those two days and come back to it. Always the time. Yup. Facebook was still tracking did nothing so Facebook tracks as if you're still on the social network and their reasoning behind it is they assume that when you deactivate your account means you wanna come back. So they keep all the stuff like they keep tracking you anyway. So like when you come back if you come back all the ads and your newsfeed is still like relevant to you. So let's say I go through a basketball phase all of a sudden when idea after I'd activated my account when I reactivated all my ads would be based on basketball. Now, even though I didn't do that before the activated my account one or the other interesting aspect, so yes, you could delete your entire Facebook account. And that would get rid of a lot of the data that it already has stored on you. But as you mentioned in your story Facebook is so deeply embedded in the internet at this point that it's still tracking people that didn't ever have faced account. So. Yeah. Even if you don't have a Facebook account they track based on your browser. Your browser has certain things that identify. Fai use. It knows what bookmarks like you haven't things like that. You know, your IP address these kind of small fingerprints of your browser, and they can serve you ads based on just like in your browser itself. So even if you're not on Facebook Facebook is serving you ads on other websites aggravate, I think the difference here with these de-activated account is people like have this assumption in their mind. Like, I did that you know. Oh, if it's deactivated. They're probably not tracking me or tying it to my account turns out that is not true. Nope. In more cheery. Facebook news, Facebook and Google reps will be in DC today for a hearing on extremists on their sites. We talked a little bit about this with the podcast yesterday. So I kinda wanna pose a question to you from Facebook's perspective. Is there anything that? You think that they can do to really help them regain trust in the marketplace? I mean, yeah, I I actually do think that this is a problem that they can't Hackel. But they just never put the resources into this is specifically. To like, white nationalist white supremacists. Racists on that have been using Facebook and YouTube to grow in audience, grow massive platform, and you know, people have died because of these kinds of us. I mean, this is all in response to the shooting in New Zealand and people like to quote this to essentially ISIS. I think that's why you know, you described as extremists platforming and. Yeah. Youtube and Facebook have done an excellent job at curbing ISIS from their platforms. And I think a lot of people are arguing that they should give the same treatment to white nationalist. Yeah. Definitely, okay. Let's turn to some slightly funner news about Twitter, which is obviously a bastion of social network, positively. But anyway, Jack Dorsey got paid a dollar forty last year from the company, isn't that cute? I mean, that's what happens when you're a part time CEO like how much square pay him. I don't know. So he. He is a billionaire. He's worth several billion dollars. So don't feel bad for Jack Dorsey now for something completely different. The first images of a black hole will be released tomorrow. The lucky black hole in the photo will be Sagittarius a which sits in the middle of our galaxy. And it will be photographed or was photographed by the event. Horizon telescope and array of radio telescopes positioned all over the earth. That's pretty cool and must think that school, and then you'll be tagged on Facebook and tracked everywhere it goes out. All right fair enough. That's true. If you want to read more about these stories, check them out on CNN. I'm Ben FOX Rueben. I'm Alfred thanks for listening.

AirPower is just one of Apple's many blunders (The 3:59, Ep. 539)

"Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Ruben. I'm Joanie salesman chain it is with a heavy heart. We are here today to report that Apple's airpower is dead. Oh too soon. The wires the wireless charging pad was announced eighteen months ago and was never actually released with apple claiming that the device it was working on wasn't meeting. It's high standards speaking of apples, high standards, less discuss some of Apple's other major goofs most recently battery throttling about that favorite of mine because it confirms for a lot of people thing that they had all it didn't entirely confirm what they always expected with are suspected which is that when apple has a new phone come out. They start to like sneakily make your old phone less usable precisely what it is. But ultimately, that's kind of idea that planned obsolescence, right? As soon as new one comes out, and you're like eldest one just doesn't perform, well, maybe upgrade we've all had that conversation and yet seem to confirm that. Yeah. And behind the scenes, yes, they worth rattling the battery. So exactly one of my other favorites was. Antenna gate, which that was my favorite Steve Jobs came out and said, you're holding. That's that's just holding like this little bit. No it was. It was awesome. I mean to accredit the they did hand out free Burs. They finally admit that, you know, there was an issue. Maybe putting the antennas around the phone may not be the best design move, but the best single move. But yeah, it was pretty okay. And to be fair a little bit to apple. There was also Ben gate. Apparently, there are a lot of gates. I was always suspicious over Ben gate. There was the unblocks therapy guy. That was literally using all the force that he possibly could depend the apple iphone six was it really gate. It was certainly embarrassing for we like to throw gate around. Generously one when it comes after controversies. I kind of agree that one's feel like they take a bad rap on that one. Yeah. And I did want to get to one other one which was my favorite, which is YouTube spamming everybody with their lousy. That was really funny because they're literally giving away something for free that nobody. Really? It's about this crab of my phone. So yeah. One more to bring up apple maps one of my favorites. Because even though nobody like it's universally. Understood to be useless. I will still forces you to like deep link out, apple Macs. Text messages that you left there apple has gone better. I think I've heard so they don't know, unfortunately, we have to change subject, but this is rapidly coming my favorite podcasts ever done that stopped. Burger King is jumping in on the meatless meet bandwagon. The burger Goliath will start selling an impossible Walker a plant based Patty that's meant to have the same taste texture and protein levels as real meat Joan as Reggie are vegetarian. Resident you have the floor. So what possible is a partnership with impossible burger, which was the food technology that debuted at CS earlier this year, it's their Neuberger. It's the one that I tried Brian Cooley tried it in the Walker format on we have a great video about that. But he's what it means. Is that people who are ready -tarian or our meters? But want to look towards not animal based options will have more opportunity that at a giant chain like like Burger King? It makes it more accessible. So the biggest question, I'm sure everybody has and you wrote about this was so how similar is a real meter how much simulate meat for you. Right. So when I haven't tried the Walker, but when I tried the new format of the impossible burger granted, I haven't had a burger and a long time multiple years. But I reminded me of what it was like to eat a Murga when I was a kid. So I don't have the kind of palate that can do a side by side comparison. But I couldn't tell the difference and all the meters. That I talked to that try it say they can't really tell the difference. Either pretty remarkable last Apple's big TV plus event was last week while we were on a short hiatus. So we wanted to do a quick rewind and talk about it with you Jones since you're there are some of your impressions? My biggest impression that I think shared by a lot of people who were just watching it or heard about a letter was like. It was. Underlaw? The big thing. The whole reason that I was there is because they are going to be unveiled their purported to be unveiling the streaming service with all these originals, and you're going to get to understand what their threat to net flix was going to be. But then we didn't they just kind of showed had their talent come out on stage did a dog and pony show about how powerful they are without any real details. How much it will cost? What will actually be available in that kind of thing? We'll find out more later, of course. But unfortunately, we've gotta rap if you want to read more about these stories check them out on CNN, Ben FOX Rueben Janis. Also brought Jane thanks for watching. Gotcha.

"rueben" Discussed on The 3:59

"Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Rueben Joni Sussman it's called clean meat or cultured me scientists can take a collection of cells from an animal without harming it. Feed. Those cells nutrients and grow them into lab grown, meat Lexus. Evita's has a great video about her. Visit to a company called just that's developing lab-grown, chicken and beef. So Joan your vegetate Erion. I'm sorry for forcing you to like be Representative of vegetarians everywhere token vegetarian. Thank you very much for doing that would vegetarians eat something like this. I feel like it's supposed to be marketed for vegetarians. Do they do they want this product unless you're how Justice marketing it, and I don't even know if it's to market. I don't think it's tomorrow. But. I think the I would assume the idea is not just a market vegetarians. I think probably the ideas to market to all consumers of meat and non people that don't eat me. Like, I think in from a vegetarian perspective, I think whether or not you would be okay, eating a lab grown meat that is legitimate chicken. Or beef protein depends on why you became vegetarian the first place, you became vegetarian the first place for like a like, I don't want animals to be killed for my meat reason than it. Theoretically would be fine. If you stopped eating meat because you're like, I don't like the idea of any animal protein entering my body, then you wouldn't. So I think comes down to that. But I do think that probably they don't wanna just reach the small niche market of vegetarians. Yeah. Right. But the second part that you mentioned, so my my wife was vegetarian for a very long time until should be pregnant with twins and had to start eating protein to make sure she had to start eating fish and chicken to make sure she was gonna protean. Yeah. And she doesn't like the texture of chicken. Yeah. So if I mentioned this to her, I don't think she would like it. You know, it doesn't matter. Whether it was from like, a chicken that you killed or whether it was from a chicken grown in a lab, right? You know, this kind of like, I don't know. I think it's fascinating. I think it's a really interesting concept. What are the other elements that is definitely interesting to discuss as far as the environmental impact. So there are people became vegetarian also because they're concerned about the environment. They they see that, you know, creating a pound of beef is also very taxing on the environment as being somebody who just plant based products. Right. So I think that maybe the bigger Mark. That they would be going for is people who eat meat already, but are feeling guilty about it because it doesn't. So this kind of meet a it doesn't actually involve killing an animal. So you can eat your meat without having to kill cute little chicken. But it also doesn't involve the UN says that thirty percent of the planet's land surface is used for livestock agriculture an eighteen percent of climate change emissions of carbon dioxide emissions. Believe are from the same thing. So actual meat from where you kill the chicken and kill the cow. That's really really bad for the environment. In a lotta ways. So I would imagine just going for people since it's a bigger market people that eat meat, but maybe would like to do it in a way that doesn't hurt the planet as much doesn't hurt the animals as much. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely interesting. When jump to the next topic next up apple announced yet another product update this week after the ipad announcement yesterday. Revamped the guts in its twenty one point five inch and twenty seven inch. I'm axe though. They look the same as prior models. Both us ops got new Intel processors and radio on graphics cards. It's interesting that they're just coming out with these as like these very simple quick incremental announcements because it seems pretty clear that they're moving more towards services as the next great thing to kind of save Apple's business because the iphone isn't doing as well as had been doing in previous years, right? Yeah. So they've they've had a stated initiative that they're going to try to get their services to twenty percent of revenue by the end of Tony twenty and to do that that means that they're going to have to launch more services. But so we do have the event coming up next week where it's expected to be services heavy events next Monday. And so what we're seeing this week? I think is apple kind of clearing the deck of all these other incremental improvements and news announcements that have to do with Pat and have to do with MAC and give people really good impression that like, hey, you're almost definitely not gonna get any product. You're not getting hardware next week are very possible. Look air pods to. We'll see. Yeah. Right away last right. Chris has a really great explainer out today about Amazon's recognition facial recognition software what it's used for. Why it's controversial? So definitely check that out either way.

Would you eat lab-grown meat? (The 3:59, Ep. 536)

"Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Rueben Joni Sussman it's called clean meat or cultured me scientists can take a collection of cells from an animal without harming it. Feed. Those cells nutrients and grow them into lab grown, meat Lexus. Evita's has a great video about her. Visit to a company called just that's developing lab-grown, chicken and beef. So Joan your vegetate Erion. I'm sorry for forcing you to like be Representative of vegetarians everywhere token vegetarian. Thank you very much for doing that would vegetarians eat something like this. I feel like it's supposed to be marketed for vegetarians. Do they do they want this product unless you're how Justice marketing it, and I don't even know if it's to market. I don't think it's tomorrow. But. I think the I would assume the idea is not just a market vegetarians. I think probably the ideas to market to all consumers of meat and non people that don't eat me. Like, I think in from a vegetarian perspective, I think whether or not you would be okay, eating a lab grown meat that is legitimate chicken. Or beef protein depends on why you became vegetarian the first place, you became vegetarian the first place for like a like, I don't want animals to be killed for my meat reason than it. Theoretically would be fine. If you stopped eating meat because you're like, I don't like the idea of any animal protein entering my body, then you wouldn't. So I think comes down to that. But I do think that probably they don't wanna just reach the small niche market of vegetarians. Yeah. Right. But the second part that you mentioned, so my my wife was vegetarian for a very long time until should be pregnant with twins and had to start eating protein to make sure she had to start eating fish and chicken to make sure she was gonna protean. Yeah. And she doesn't like the texture of chicken. Yeah. So if I mentioned this to her, I don't think she would like it. You know, it doesn't matter. Whether it was from like, a chicken that you killed or whether it was from a chicken grown in a lab, right? You know, this kind of like, I don't know. I think it's fascinating. I think it's a really interesting concept. What are the other elements that is definitely interesting to discuss as far as the environmental impact. So there are people became vegetarian also because they're concerned about the environment. They they see that, you know, creating a pound of beef is also very taxing on the environment as being somebody who just plant based products. Right. So I think that maybe the bigger Mark. That they would be going for is people who eat meat already, but are feeling guilty about it because it doesn't. So this kind of meet a it doesn't actually involve killing an animal. So you can eat your meat without having to kill cute little chicken. But it also doesn't involve the UN says that thirty percent of the planet's land surface is used for livestock agriculture an eighteen percent of climate change emissions of carbon dioxide emissions. Believe are from the same thing. So actual meat from where you kill the chicken and kill the cow. That's really really bad for the environment. In a lotta ways. So I would imagine just going for people since it's a bigger market people that eat meat, but maybe would like to do it in a way that doesn't hurt the planet as much doesn't hurt the animals as much. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely interesting. When jump to the next topic next up apple announced yet another product update this week after the ipad announcement yesterday. Revamped the guts in its twenty one point five inch and twenty seven inch. I'm axe though. They look the same as prior models. Both us ops got new Intel processors and radio on graphics cards.

Apple's iPad family welcomes back refreshed iPad Air, Mini (The 3:59, Ep. 535)

"Three fifty nine check. Then FOX Rueben apple has a big events lead. For next Monday. This morning quietly announced two new, ipads refreshed. Ipad, mini any new larger ten point five inch air the ipad air starts at four hundred nine while. The new ipad mini starts at three ninety nine. And they're discontinuing the ten point five inch, ipad pro. So this kind of the new ipad air, basically replaces that one right is this is the confusing thing. They haven't brought out and I knew ipad air for two years. And now that they have yes. Essentially works to replace the ipad pro it's larger the ten point five inch wanted works with the apple pencil. So basically is is the ipad pro and all the name. So we were talking about this just ahead of the podcast that it's kind of like they're taking the air name and making it more like the pro they just did that with the MAC book air the map book air is almost indistinguishable. From the MAC book. Pro the specs are almost identical. Do you think there's any reason for that? It's it's weird. It's we're we're talking about this earlier. The the MAC ipad lineup has gotten a lot like the MAC lineup in kind of confusing. There's a bit of overlap here and there, and it's it is kind of it's getting harder to figure out which is the ipad. You want? I mean, essentially, I guess this is supposed to be a work level type, I pads and Scott keyboard accessory. It's got the apple pencil compatibility. I mean, look these things have never really been that great for the workplace, but definitely definitely trying to present the air as the new pro. So from a financial perspective. I was just pulling up the numbers. It looks like the ipad business line had actually done better in the December quarter. So we'd been seeing scenic gone down for quarter after quarter after quarter. Obviously, they figured out a way to at least inject a little bit more life into the ipads. But it still like they just sent out a press release bright. So so obviously their posture at apple is we're not going to treat this as a big thing. And I know they've done well in getting these things in schools, I think what has helped reverse some of the declines in sales. Also, the fact that they're releasing the hardware here via press release serve a tacit acknowledgement that next week's event will. Will likely be mostly content. Content-focused probably not going to see any hardware. Yeah. Good point. All right. So next up. Let's talk about fischel recognition see is has kicked off its latest special report dedicate to this topic. Ben, you are you has the lead story today in this exhaustive investigative piece. You tell me what you found so facial recognition used by law enforcement has largely been promoted as a way to solve cold cases or find missing children or reduce human trafficking. Really these big controversial some tension gathering crimes right by I went and guide. Police reports from one of Amazon's only known law enforcement agencies that uses their facial recognition and largely they were using it for petty crimes, very minor crimes like theft of bicycle twelve dollar shoplifting case, which the ACLU I talked to them about this this finding and they said look this shows that this. Type of technology is completely unnecessary. Why would you create this huge facial recognition database just to solve a twelve dollar shoplifting case, right? Well, look it. It's a fascinating story and basically. Yeah. And I think it is a great illustration of this balanced between the need to use facial recognition self crimes like the fear of overreach. Right. This is this is where we're going. This is the nation state where we're we're we're just going to be using facial recognition everywhere. Well, that's the concern of the that is just going to be a slippery slope by in the defense of the Washington county sheriff's office, which is the one using this tool. They say that it really speeds up their investigations even for these minor investigations it can sometimes take days to identify somebody's face. This you just plug it into the tool if it's one of the mugshots that they have in their database comes back almost instantly. All right. Well, I mean, we've got a lot more facial recognition stories. It's boring. Both the pluses and minus there are some good things about it for sure, but stay tuned for for the rest of the stories. Lastly, we want to shout out to insurance got Stein who are on the ground at the game developer conference inside Francisco. We expect the big news. We expect is Google potentially announcing this game streaming service tomorrow who like like a twitch now look at twitch, no more like a cloud games. Basically the idea that you can use low powered hardware to play whatever games. Whether it's the, you know, the latest AAA title for assassin's creed or red dead, redemption. Right. So. We'll see. I mean, that's that's the big thing game streaming has started to take off a bit. It's still kind of niche, but you know, with Google putting their resources behind it could be more mainstream thing at least until Google announcement. Laura Dern, it has a nice wrap up of the services that are actually out there now. Nice. So for more on GDP, facial recognition and all tech Chickasaw seeing that jank come then FOX anchor listening.

Apple's mysterious Netflix-like TV service to be revealed (The 3:59, Ep. 532)

"The. Another three fifty nine Ben talks Rueben Janis often on March twenty fifth but world will change forever. Apple the company that brought me I phone come on. This is dubbed China movie trailer voice. It is expected to unveil its rumored video service at a press event at its Cupertino California headquarters, it's very obvious that this is probably what's going to happen. Because their invitation said it's Showtime on it. So the not even hiding it. Now Joan you're going to be at the event is this a big deal or really big deal. Tell us all about it in a world where net flex Ardy has over millions of Scribner's how big of a deal is it that apple is doing. So it's a big deal in the sense that it's a big deal for apple in the sense that iphone sales as we know revenue's going down and apple said that they want services like apple music and presumably this. Netflix service, it wants scripts and that like recurring money to becoming in the a bigger part of their business and not part of their business has been doing really well. Yeah, it's been doing well. So this would be a big part of that push. But like outside of the apple bubble like they've been spent they had reportedly a billion dollar budget on content, which isn't actually that much to some of the other. It is a lot. It's a lot compare that to Amazon, and Netflix, Netflix is budget. It's hard to keep track. But I think it's something it's I care about. I think it's like thirteen billion including marketing, I think it's ten billion just for content and another three million just for marketing. I think and I could be getting their honestly, it's just so Netflix says so, but the thing about Netflix is it like makes everybody Hollywood make their jaws drop how much money they spend. So it's not exactly a good barometer to go up against a billion dollars a lot compared to each. HBO compared to who compared to Amazon, which does not spend as much many more. But does not spend as much as nobody spent as much as not flex. What's interesting is that not only do we have Netflix? But Apple's releasing the service Disney's going to be releasing a service like it later this year, there's going to be a service from Warner media, which is AT and T which is the owner of each be oh next year. So it's happening at the time where there's been more competition for this kind of subscriber than ever over the next year worry, not flex at all. Or are. They feeling pretty comfortable. I think they're feeling fine considering that they have like a hundred thirty million subscribers globally. They're so far out ahead of the competition. Wherein the competitions just starting, but I will say Spotify though, it still has more global subscribers than apple music music, kind of to a degree that no one really expected like really quickly got into second place and in the US. It's even it's even estimated that. Music has more subscribers Spotify just here. So I wouldn't never never count apple out of race. When they're really really dedicated definitely can't do that. So it'll be really interesting to see more about that. And obviously price will also be an interesting element. We'll see how that goes. But also wanted to get to another story is a neck and neck subscriber contest between Pudi pie and t series. That's continuing with t-series taking the subscriber crown briefly, again, I kind of know or care about this. Maybe this important like Pudi pike claims that this is something to do with like, this is capturing the soul of YouTube to a certain extent because he's like a single YouTube or whereas series is a whole production studio is it that important, and that is a lot of PD pie and to his fans because it's a lot to have the crown as the most subscribed channel. Means a lot for as far as I know series hasn't really talked about anything. But it does raise is this. You like is it a fair comparison series being a record label with constant content coming out high production value stuff, and then, you know. Dude, one person in like as a partner in front of a microphone. It's startling to me that he's managed to keep the crown as long as he has since late twenty thirteen and his views. I saw our story today. Twenty billion. Yeah. That's crazy. Yeah. He's been a really really long time for like four years six years something like that pretty either way if you want to read more about these stories, check them out on Ben FOX, Ruben Joni salsa.

What happens when landlords decide your apartment is a smart home (The 3:59, Ep. 530)

"Three fifty nine. I'm Ben Foxman. Joni Solomon, I'm outfitting along with smart homes. We're now seeing a growing trend of smart rentals. Alfred wrote about landlords fitting apartment units with internet connected locks thermostats and other sensors the problem is that some tenants don't actually want this technology and don't wanna feel like they're being monitored. So Alfred first question is there any recourse for renters? If all of a sudden, my apartment unit is going to be turned into a smart rental moving out that that is basically so because this technology is so new people really associated smart homes, like something you do for your own apartment or anything like that. They don't really see it as your landlord doing that for you. So there's no no one's like filed a lawsuit about this. And there's no laws protecting you from your landlord doing this to you currently because it's so new so right now, really the only thing you can tell your landlord as I don't want. This and hopefully, you're landlords that show person or you can move out. I think people that forcibly create smart, very Chelsea. So let's talk about it from the landlord perspective. Why do they want to spend, you know, hundreds of thousands of dollars to add this type of technology into their units? Is there like a benefit for them? Is there a potential benefit for tenants? Yeah. Definitely helpful for landlords. And not all tenants hate this. You know, they wanna be able to control their thermos all the reasons that you would want to smart home. There are a lot of people that have privacy and security concerns about it. But you know for landlords that means that they can monitor water and energy usage from their phones. They don't have to make a new key every time they can just like make new code for new tenants. Also, this is something that tenants actually sometimes actually want, and you know, they can charge higher rent or attract more people to to rent from them, if it's a smart home, and they don't have to do with themselves. So to me, this is an interesting aspect of smart, cities, smart cities is big concept that started many years ago and one of the primary concerns with smart cities is you can't opt out. So that kind. Sucks that if you don't like this technology, you're you're basically your option is to move out or whatever. Yeah. I think big differences though, is that with smart cities. It's not like in your house. Like, you you expect your house to be a place where where your private, and your landlord doesn't know like all this information about you like considering that it logs every time you use the code on your door. Or how often it's used? Basically means your landlord knows when you're in and out of your house like constantly, you know, there are laws that say that landlords have to give you twenty four hours notice before coming into your house, but with something like this. It's like, they're, you know, they've got a virtual presence in your in your home at all times next at the Tribeca film festival immersive program. This year creators are working to change up VR experiences. A little to focus more on interactive experiences junkie. Tell us a little about those. Yeah. So every year because retro galley and mixed reality are the main. Immersive storytelling formats today every year, and because they're developing so quickly every year out of like Joe Becker at Sundance, there's kind of new advancement. So what you can do. And it seems like this year people are really stressing heightened interactivity that. Hopefully, actually feels natural. And also location based entertainment what's known as LB or at which is something that you can't just do by putting on a headset in your living room. You have to go to a specific place usually pay for ticket price and getting experience that way, that's where you have things like live actors interacting with you. When you're in VR is the expectation that some of these ideas are actually going to push VR forward because from reading your story. It seems pretty clear that a lot of these creators understood that most folks really don't like sticking VR helmet on their face. Yeah. The fact that VR headsets haven't been as popular as the hype of the last couple years would have led some people to hope means that. That's the reason why people are really diving into LV. It's an idea where you know, Mersa theaters really popular thing going to arcades was a popular thing. The maybe that they can find a business model and format that finds an appeal since headsets haven't really gone mass. I get it. Just kind of like going to a concert at hokey mongo did for a are where like nobody cared about it on. So posing. Pokemon go at Tribeca film festival. Just allies. Yeah. It'll be extremely pop blast. And I know we don't have much time to get to this. Facebook Mark Zuckerberg said the future of communication is now in private an encrypted services. Like, what's up, this kind of doesn't jibe very well because it's Zuckerberg and soccer Burg been pushing everybody to share everything about themselves on Facebook. What do you guys think about those? I mean, log on here skeptics of his claims have basically argued that he's making this whole privacy push now. So that he can basically, consolidate what's up Instagram and Facebook messenger into one messaging up which he does lay out and his plan for privacy. But also, I think the writings been on the wall for awhile that, you know, not as many people wanna post on Facebook publicly anymore. A lot of younger people have flocked to platforms like Snapchat, where it doesn't last forever. Every privacy scandal. That's happened with Facebook in the last year. I think he knows that you know, people. Don't want their lives digitally like out in public like that anymore and preserved over so. Yeah. Yeah. But I again, like people have a right to be skeptical about his claims considering you know, this is the fortune that that Facebook built its empire on and now there art saying they're gonna turn turn against all of that. Well, I think that actually aren't saying they're gonna turn against all of that the way that he kind of message. It was that like, oh man privacy is the new black like this is what it's all about just crazy. But from what it seems like in follow up interviews. He's saying like, oh, no, no, no. The news still saying it'll still continue as it is. We're just going to focus on this also create like a dual duopoly universe in the Facebook world very bureaucratic diplomatic way of saying it anyway, we're way over on time. So thank you very much for listening to our super deluxe edition of the three fifty nine. If you want to read more from these stories checking them out on CNN, Ben FOX Rueben, I'm Joanie salsa.

Foldable phones are here, and they're crazy expensive (The 3:59, Ep. 524)

"Three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Rueben. Joni Saltzman Samsung got a wave of attention for introducing its first foldable phone the galaxy fold last week not to be outdone though. A bunch more companies came out with their own foldable phone news at mobile world, congress soon after the most notable new entrant is the Weiwei mate X. Maybe it's the mate ten we don't even know what axes anymore, which will cost wait for it two thousand six hundred dollars. And it's expected to come out. I think a little later this year. But I mean, what do you think of that price that's really expensive? But we are talking about, you know, the next wave of technology for your little super computer that you hold on your hand. So it it's kind of like the first really new thing in a phone in a long time. And so all at least give full. Dible phones. I'll grant them that that if you're doing something that's legitimately different a high like putting the price higher make sense where it gets annoying as where it's like we have really incremental advancements instead of bringing the price of a phone down when you're not really revolutionizing it. That's where it goes like higher and higher and higher. What are the other interesting arguments? So the same son galaxy fold is two thousand dollars that one's coming out at the end of April and one of the interesting arguments about justifying that price was okay. Well, you not actually buying one phone, you're buying two phones because full doubt. And it's kind of two phones or whatever I don't know how much by that. But at least it got me a little bit closer to being like. Oh, yeah. Sure. I would pay that. No, not really. Some of the other interesting foldable phone news that I wanted to get to TC L also showed up showed off a concept phone Benz into a watch. Yeah. I don't know about that one and Jami in January showed off a video of a phone that folds kind of like a billfold sort of it'll be easier to explain video. It's basically it starts like this. And then a foles on either side and turns like kind of more into like a tiny or phone or something. So what I wanted to also ask is, do you think that especially after the prices go down on this stuff that people are actually going to buy this? Let's say reaches like, let's say thousand dollars thousand five hundred dollars is it going to be a gimmick or people really going to be into it. I think that what people are going to be waiting. Besides the price tag on down is whether or not this means your phone dies. Like, if you're going to drop like twenty six hundred dollars on a phone does that mean that it only lasts for three months because you keep folding it back and forth. I think that longevity of the phones is going to be something that people are going to be waiting to see how it fares, and that's gonna take time. It's going to take months for people. To have them out in the out in the world to see how what happens when you drop them. Yeah. Next. Netflix did really well at the Oscars last night pretty well. They did they did find we'll give them a b minus raking in three awards for Roma in best, directing cinematography and foreign language film. It did fall short in a best picture win. So for streaming services that big best picture win still up for grabs. Yeah. They still haven't snatched Hollywood's biggest alternate prize quite yet. So they had a good night. They have always gotten a cultural or from the Oscars because of a lot of resistance to their way of releasing films. Which is traditionally been you really sit for Netflix subscribers online to stream the same day, you put it in like a sprinkling of theaters around the country, which is really only to qualify for things like the Oscars. Ultimately. But they have only won two Oscars up to this point. And they never wanted a really big category really flashy category before and so winning four total in having Roma. When these kind of high profile words was a big step forward for them. Even if they didn't get best picture kind of bigger picture here. Sorry about that horrible bigger picture. Why does it matter for Netflix at all for viewers? Yeah. These awards it's one of the one of the big sticking points for top talent to come to net. Flix has been enough looks. I'm always like we got a giant check leave it in front of your face. But that doesn't been enough for everybody. Like, they missed out on crazy, rich, Asians because the creators didn't just want money. Other movies have been the same way, and that top echelon of filmmakers that a lot of subscribers probably wanna see those films have been resistant because of things like there's no track record of getting Oscars and other elements and so getting these these Oscar wins for Roma. It's definitely a step in the direction of. Appeasing? Those worries we want more than money good for them. I guess if you want to read more about these stories, check them out on seen it.

All eyes on the Samsung Galaxy Fold (The 3:59, Ep. 523)

"Three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Ruben. I'm Alford ING for the tenth anniversary of the galaxy s phone Samsung revealed in array of new gear at its unpack vent Wednesday. The big attention grabber was of course, the galaxy fold a foldable phone Samsung's been teasing for years. It's got a four point six inch display in the front that then folds out to a seven point three inch display. Holy smokes. It's also just under two thousand dollars. Alfred who do you think is actually going to buy this thing? I don't think anyone's really going to buy it. I don't I it looks really cool. But you know, somebody he writes I wanted to get it. If CBS was willing to pay for it. But it turns out that they are not going to get it for free. Yes. If somebody just gave it to me. Sure. I'll I'll take it and use it. But for two thousand dollars for something that's really not been proven yet. I don't know. I don't think that's really by this phone. They're going to be a bunch of leg early adopters. And is that just went to like show off at a party and Bill. Yeah, check this out that is not the majority of people like select handful, and you know, I don't think Samsung really has that kind of flex power that apple does. I think when the iphone ten came out like your phone to notch is got thousand dollar phone. I don't think Samsung has that same power for some reason. I don't know why was like oh while ago two thousand dollar phone four like definitely cooler features definitely more useful than like a notch. But you know, that level of flexing and luxury like early adoption. Kind of thing. I don't think that Samsung has that kind of power. It's a very good point that you mentioned apple has been pushing the that whole luxury brand stuff. Yeah. A very long time. They even brought in Burberry's former CEO to run its retail rations they for their retail shops. I remember I covered one. I think in the upper east side that was like a former Bank that was like, you know, tried to really make things look very luxurious. And they're like, hey, give us all your money. You're going to be one of the rich kids thing about how quickly like air pods became a giant flex, right? Like that was something only. Rich people have air pods, which I will admit on this podcast. We made fun of allied. What like galaxy buds like cost about the same price as airports? I guarantee you. They will not have that same reputation of being Affleck's in the same way that I don't think the fold will be like a flex device. I have a hard time agreeing with you on the fold just because it's that much more expensive, and it's so much more noticeable as a thing the non. Yeah, it's noticeable. But it's not as noticeable as you take out your phone, and then folding it out and being like, yo check this out. This is amazing. I also appreciate you using the word flex allot, which I totally get 'cause I'm a young person though, there's that we don't have that much time on the show come on. All right. Taxed Samsung revealed four new galaxy S ten phones yesterday, the ten the ten plus the cheaper s ten e and the ten five G, which is a brand I five G phone. Let me run through some of the specs ultrasonic in screen fingerprint sensor. There's a whole punch instead of a notch on the side, which I guess is cool. I don't know what you think about that. I appreciate hope hunch thing it's a much better design than having that notch. Just because it feels much less intrusive. Yes. Big fan of the aquasonic fingerprint reader. I'm glad that you can have the full screen now on fortunately for the ten eversion defender print readers on the power button. Really? Yeah. It's not in the screen. I I guess because it's like two hundred dollars. Exactly, also, they keep the headphone Jack. I throw that. Yes. Very important reason why I am looking for ten now as opposed to like a pixel three or anything like that. Also, they talked up their cameras a lot it looks like they're, you know, trying to catch up with the iphone ten. Our tennis also the pixel threes camera. They finally started talking about a lot of the software features that they're building into. But also would are they got like three cameras on the back yet to four. I think the plus has four I believe awhile. So the three cameras on the back, though, one is like ultra-wide one is like a macro like zooming and one's like a normal camera. Also, there's like some Instagram feature now with yes, yes. So they talked a lot about the camera which to me feels like this is what they do oppressive. And now they're like yo check out this camera. It's incredible. Let's flex I use that. Right. Yeah. Again, we don't have any time left on the okay fine.

Apple will finally tell us why it spent $1B on video (The 3:59, Ep. 521)

"Three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Ruben Joni salesman apple is expected to reveal a rumored video service and a new subscription service at an event next month. I think it's March twenty fifth. All right. Yep. Okay. Is this apple Netflix? Is that what we're all expecting? No. Yeah. Well, it's actually a little bit more like apple Amazon prime video more. So than or worse thing. The idea. Now, all of this is speculation based on reporting. It's hasn't none of this has been confirmed by apple because they're still keeping mum on on everything has to do with this except that they. Yeah. Hyun on basically everything, but the understanding is that Apple's going to unveil video service a subscription video service so similar to net flex, but a little bit more like Amazon prime video might also have the ability to add on existing streaming services like HBO, although the reporting that HBO is holding out for better terms. But you know, stars stars the streaming service or another one Netflix also is one that like not shockingly is also not reportedly not involved. But yeah, Alison spending. A billion reportedly a billion dollars lining up all these really high profile television projects and up until now and continuing until March twenty fifth. We have no idea exactly how they're going to be distributed them letting people see them is this. So we're going to be able to watch planet of the apps on this slow. I assume so because you can watch planet of the app, which was Apple's first attempts at a television show in which went swimmingly did not do great. That's one that they distributed via apple music their subscription music service that was a video element to their subscription music. And it had other things on the subscription music service. That are video like they had a Taylor stuff concert special. If I remember they've had other things that are a little more appropriate for music service to have than planet of the apps, which was like a shark tank for ABC development. But they haven't had anything that anyone would consider to be a runaway success television. Apple really spotty track record on television contents other than just like being a storefront for people in tune. So also really quickly. I wanted to mention the new service because I got a lot of attention from folks like us who are reporters apparently apple was interested in creating again, I'm gonna use not flex neck. Netflix for news was asking publishers for fifty percent cut of subscriptions. So people were pretty upset about this. But I'm assuming if they've already got this rumored event going on. This is going to happen to a certain extent, right? The news service, I presume, it's gonna happen. This company texture last year, which is essentially what the service is magazine publishers already involved in texture texture wasn't a big success in terms of like most people have never heard of it. But apple bought it. And they've used that as the building blocks to create this new service, which we presume we'll have to see the today at some point next up. Our own Laura hotel wrote about how a lot of Android apps appear to be violating Google's policies by transmitting more data than they should to advertisers. This data makes it easier to track people online, even when they wipe their in for information from these apps. Google said it reviewed this research and has taken action, but interestingly enough wouldn't provide any additional information. This is another example of tech companies really seeming in in my mind to stumble and not really doing what they should be doing related to privacy, and maybe helping advertisers more than they should user privacy. Right. Even when there is a purported protect privacy protection. It can be used to violate your privacy. Yeah. Last Google CEO soon. Darpa Chai's said the search giant is investing thirteen billion dollars in data centers and offices around the country. Why the company didn't talk up the effort for a full year beforehand is beyond me. Right. It should've labeled it perhaps Google HQ dollar sign. Absolutely. Okay.

Google Assistant is making a run for Alexa (The 3:59, Ep. 516)

"Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX ribbon. Joni thousand Google is trying to use its massive brain power to outsmart Amazon's Alexa, our own rich. The wrote a story today about the search giant using machine learning artificial intelligence to create new features for its assistant that are tough to match some of these are interpreter mode, which speaks twenty seven different languages. There's also duplex which is that robocaller that mimics like if you had a secretary that was calling to schedule a hairport -ment or get a restaurant reservation. So a question you, though, is this something that you think people are going to want out of their assistance in the first place. Well, one of the things that I think people want is. More natural conversation with assistance, not having to feel like you have to say, hey, Google play me this song on this album from this artist. It feels like you're talking in code basic does. And so I think people as as it seems like people are welcoming more voice assistance into their lives. I think that the work that we will says it wants to do on making the con- making the conversations conversational. Yeah. And so this executive that rich talked to said that they're hoping to get the basics of natural human conversation down Pat in five years, right? A little skeptical about that. I think that's actually a much much harder problem to solve even for Google by. I think they'll get a hell of a lot closer to it in five years. The other thing that I want to mention about this because I cover Amazon is a company don't can Amazon out there. They've hired like something like ten thousand people for their Alexa team Rio. They they see this. Huge opportunity for them. They're not just building the hardware. They're really trying to push this as much as possible because they see voice computing as a really big opportunity on as making push into it. But where do you think will does have the advantage? I think rich had it right where Google currently has the advantage when you talk about machine learning artificial intelligence their ability to do translation, I also think that Google in general is just much much better at actually understanding what it is that you say like us both and Google typically just gets it. Right. More often. I don't know it'll be an interesting battle. And we'll keep writing about it either way next up podcasts. So hot right now. Spotify. Spotify announced bought to podcasts companies Gimblett an anchor can't say that I actually heard of anchor, but Gimblett to me that sounds like a pretty big deal. I mean, like, that's that's a rather significant podcasting company. Right, right. Yeah. So this is something that Spotify has been messaging that they would be doing that. They're really interested in non music, audio entertainment. And so it's not a surprise that. They would be going after podcast they've been talking about how much they're interested in that kind of thing. But I think it is surprising how much Spotify thinks the market for podcasts really arts still sort of a knee ship thing in not in terms of listening, but in terms of making money off, right? And that's something that spot if I really need to do music streaming doesn't make a lot of money. Most music streaming companies are not profitable, including Spotify. If you look at their total like year rather than just looking single quarter. But yeah, they wanna spend up to half a billion dollars on acquisitions year, and this is a big chunk out. Yeah. How do you think this helps them against apple music? Well, apple in terms of itunes is obviously like the defacto place that people get their podcasts already. So while Spotify is still ahead of the game ahead in the game against apple music in terms of the number of people that are using it and the number of people that are subscribing to it podcasting is an area where it's definitely apples turf. So if Spotify wants to sort of change the equation about how we find podcasts how people post podcasts and where you're listening to your podcasts. Then apples the one that they're still going to be batting up against bright being said, they're not gonna like pull Gimblett podcasts off of I tunes. Right. Like that would be crazy nuclear option. Yeah. That'd be a great question. I mean, you could say that if they were to do that it wouldn't be it wouldn't be like they'd be putting it behind a paywall because Spotify obviously has the free tier two. Listen to anything with ads, and that's not going to be going away anytime soon. And so it would be I guess it just depends on how disruptive they wanna be to dedicated podcast listeners and people have sort of their ingrained ways of doing things, even if it's not necessarily a loyalty to apple like, I gotta listen to this is where I got it. Yeah. It's it's at least a very grain behavior. So it would be interesting to see if they do pull up. I'd be surprised if they do just because it would be so destructive to this core audience of podcast listeners. But we'll see last Angela aren't errands. I think Aaron Jila errant here anymore. Pun still works. Yes. Apple's retail chief and former Burberry CEO is leaving an April apple said she's heading out for quote, new personal and professional pursuits either way, we're out of time.

"Jason Concepcion Meli Rueben. Welcome to house of call. Hello. That was a that was a great intro. Thank you so much fitness honor to be here. Here's something privilege, the the honor and privilege is is ours. We have circled this this moment in time. It is November. And we're very very excited about the idea of of delivering to all of our hungry home. He's all of our taste buds out there. A Harry Potter view of the feasting the holiday world because we have come to appreciate the feasts of Hogwarts. We know how important food is the entire wizard ING world. And you know, I can't think of any other way to sort of crack that egg. If I can use a food that kind of food euphemism then with with two wizard Ning experts on Molly Weasley right here. Now, let's begin with this. Yes, you both just within the last handful of months. Visited the wizard ING world. It's trail in in Orlando, Florida. I'm my own self have have been there and they have mode. They food a lot of delicious. So is it now I married before the started talked about shipping home to herself. That is a story. Let let's begin. There we hungry homeys. Don't worry we'll get to the food of the wizard ING world. But this this we have to begin in the real wizard world. Well this. The fine people at universal Orlando resorts and the whizzing world understand who their customers. It's true. And man, they are they prepared to sell you a affective. It is quite I mean, you walk into these incredible re-creations of stores, you know, and they have all the products that you've read about read so much about and they looked Alicia and the next thing, you know, you've spent two hundred dollars on candy easily I shipped. Well, I didn't ruby are delightful colleague, Ashley run out of time trip, and we're trying to record a gas an hour before heading to the airport so ruby helped but we the collective shipped. I believe it was thirty one pounds of merch back to our office here in almost all of that was was candy on a lot of can I should say, this is important context. We live in Los Angeles. Yeah. Where there is also a wizard world of Harry Potter, which means I could just I could just go. Get candy. Yeah. Ship this across the country, and my I I think part of it is because. Food is so visceral rights reading about it. I mean, so many things about the story pull you in. And you think I want that? I wish I could experience for moment in time food on the one hand, you might think well, I have food. I can go have a delicious snack if I want. So it's almost counterintuitive to think that something that Israel, delicious food dry you in. But it's that is that that whole Mark of a great fantasy story where it's like the one twist the slight recalibration on something familiar makes it somehow even more exciting. So the idea of like a candy like fizzing wisdom, something that I can eat a candy shop that's gonna make me levity or, you know, pepper Imps like so there's going to be spoke at the years, iced, mice, chattering teeth birdie bots, every flavor being which is a jelly bean where each being is you don't know what you're going to ask literally do not know what the flavor is going to be it could be anything from strawberry earwax. Let. But that's a fun thing with your friends vomit flavored one very unpleasant sardine is the worst one I've ever had truly truly offensive can't even believe they did that to you..

"I thought was interesting though, to kind of give contrast because Rueben Reuben is a whole seems like a guy who does care like he doesn't seem like a total shark or anything. I mean, he seems like he's he's trying. He tries to do the right thing as much. His you can't I guess in that live, you know. But you don't you don't see Lucero just shows up town by himself. And when he's in the room getting ready and doctors asking the two gentlemen with him. Like is he okay hit? He do this, you know, Z and shape to wrestle. And they're just like, oh, yeah. He's great at. It's like, and you're like, are you? You know? And it's like you realize like many nobody's looking out for Cerro. He also seems much more professional than till he does. And I don't I don't know if that's just the way he carries himself. He looks very, you know, he arrives alone. But he doesn't look lost. You know, he's he's put together his wear sued. It's the ties nodded. He he comes out of the God that that scene where he comes out after losing. And he's walking all by himself. There's nobody with them the lights are turning out before he can even get out the door, and but he looks he looks put together, you know, he's he's hurting and things like that. But he just looks like much more consummate professional than than totally does. And again, I don't know that me reading something into it. That wasn't a wasn't intended. Or did. They just perfectly communicate that. But yeah, it seems like a he's in it for the long like he's got a career here. You know, even if he's in bad shape, you know, maybe he's making the best calls. He can for the you know, what he's got left of his career. But he seems like a professional to me totally seems like, you know, he's kind of propped up by the promoters, and he's gonna flake out which he does Rubens really trying to look out for him. He talks about of, you know, get get away from Oma. Let's get you over here. You know, you can stay with me. We'll find a place for you pays for them to do all this stuff. And then totally just loses his shit when Ruben gives him his cut of the person. It's only one hundred bucks. He's like I got beat up for this. You know? And it's like, yeah. You know, I was spotting you for all of these other things. So no wonder your cut of the purses very small in because you basically you have to pay Reuven back for all this the stuff that he's done. He's not gonna do it out of the goodness of his. Own heart, even though he is doing it for the right reasons. And then yeah, tell she's looking for any excuse now to crawl back into a bottle and get back to where he was at the beginning beginning of the film. He doesn't seem to really want the help does the look on his face when he when he's declared the winner because it a typical Hollywood film. This would be like this would be like some cheesy like, yes, he's back and it'd be glorious. It'd be like, you know, it's always like rocky Balboa look at him like he's overcome. And instead Tolley just looks. He looks ragged and he looks lost. And it's you know, what I kind of took from that was just like maybe the realization of like, you built yourself up for something that you're like, this is going to be the thing that's going to get me back, and it's going to fulfill me again gripe to the fulfilment thing. And then when he realized it's not that easy. You know, something is, you know, isn't rich ING, but occasionally complicated as. Fulfilled. It, you know, it's not gonna come with just a victory that you don't have a heart into again. This isn't his passion. But he doesn't even know what his passion is. What do you do when you're a lost soul? You know? It's the spirits good. But the souls laws, so I think you know, to me like the money. Mike nailed it. I think he was looking for an out. I think also maybe there is that realization of like, I mean, boxers. I mean, God that is one of the roughest I think of sports put your body through. And you know, we're talking a lot of concussions lot of C T E..

"There's no more love because one person's always angry and the other person's always wanting to figure out how to not make them angry, and it becomes a vicious dysfunctional cycle that never ends. So there's a lot to unpack with the silent treatment. But I wanted to address the main problems the main issue with this being a regular part of any relationship when it's a regular part of the relationship the relationships usually not fulfilling in any way, because now you have someone that simply isn't there in seems to be upset all the time. And as long as they're upset, then if they're upset and giving you the silent treatment. Than what you're doing is trying to make them happy in, someway, which can teeter on the edge of being the supply for their narcissistic tendency. I'm not saying that everyone that doesn't silence Rueben is narcissistic, I'm saying that there's a narcissistic tendency in there, and if they are looking for you to be that supply for them for that, narcissistic tendency then that cycle usually doesn't end until someone steps out of and says, whoa, I see what's going on here. I don't we get out of the cycle. We gotta say, no, I'm not going to do this anymore. I can't be a part of this. If you the person giving me the scientists that really has a problem, then don't be silent be expressive. And this is something I told my girlfriend a long time ago 'cause she would do this. When we first met, my girlfriend would give me silence or like a month or two months. It wasn't like completely silent. I would I didn't walk around here. Nothing all day long. It was lack of connection. She. Wouldn't give me I contact. And it would drive me crazy because I did all this healing. And I got out of my own dysfunctional silent treatment behavior myself, and when I got into this new relationship, I didn't think I'd have to deal with that anymore because I had done so much healing, and my girlfriend had done a lot of healing too. So I really thought that we had reached a new level we were connecting and meeting at this new level, and it was going to be like this exploding awesome relationship from the gecko. But it wasn't. It was more like I would say or do something that upset her. But I never found out until a month later that I upset her. And I went through a month of no connection. No, I contact hardly anything physical context. Hardly anything. And I remember the first time this happened. And I said what is wrong you haven't looked at me. You don't look at me. Don't connect with me. I don't feel any love from you. What is going on? And she said nothing. I was like, no that's wrong. I know something's happening. This is where you trust your instincts because you know, what it feels like when everything's good. You know, what that feels like? So you trust your instinct, and you go. Okay. Something's not right here. I can feel it. I don't feel the connection, and you might even say some certain things you used to always kiss me at this time of day or used to always bring me lunch or whatever.

"The other side of the football defense for sure larry i mean i think off option possibly uh i think they all progress and i think that's happened last year i started last year that they sort of built it up to season probe crashed i remember the typical last year i believe car through for five hundred was sort of the turning point game and i thought that they really started going forward at that point but i think defensively this year has been a huge crop uh not that easy we don't need numbers to tell me what i see on tape but i will tell you that they have the worst passer rating against aversion opposing quarterbacks and that's on merit this is not a very good defense and it's it's becomes difficult to play offense when you're you're feel after battling audio every single week what about the addition of bowman in the metal has allies that change what they do well i think he's played well but the larger issue was in their secondary and i don't think they're secondary has played very well at all and i think they struggled at the corner position and the second part of that because we know pass defense involves two things it involves past rush and coverage and the pastor go together and they've not been able to rush the quarterback this year with the consistency we saw a year ago is which is gotta be shocking because the arguably have the nfl's most elite pass rusher and khalil mack but outside a mac they don't get to the quarterback at all correct correct and and you can always take away one pass rusher with your protection concepts obviously if you have more than one it becomes more and more difficult just like impact coverage you can double team two players but you can't doubleteam three players so you're right about the past rush they really have not generated any pass rush from any other individual and that's been problematic scabby galling to of your raider fan because you passed on rueben reggie passes on rueben foster for guaranteeing conley and here we are you know late in the year in corners not a strength it's a weakness in calmly only played twos two games were you impressed with conley coming out of ohio state into the draft and.
