"Have to then convert that voice traffic off, the satellites, and then be able to put it in the Sip Trunks. And one of the challenges you're faced with is for each one of these businesses. Each one of the business wants to have their own SIP trunk, have their own dids and have their own telephone numbers. So they had all these Trunks and they had all these satellite connections and they needed to connect the two of them together. And one of the parts of the challenges was as they also needed to transcode from compromise speech that is passed on the satellite to uncompress speech when it gets to the to the Tiptronic providers. So they need to be able to converse from G 723, D 729 over, 2G Sim. 11:00 and pass it on to the to the ship from providers and the top of it need to be able to keep it all straight, right? Which, which remote goes with which SIP trunk and to be able to pass all that traffic and manage it in such a way. So they could, you know, properly routed and and traffic limit and these kinds of things to, to keep the service going. So that was the challenge and that's when they came to us. So you they came to you with this Challenge. And why did you then present the Telco Bridges? Pro SBC sure. Yep. Will by looking at the solution or looking at the challenge that they have. We, you know, we came to the conclusion that are pro SBC fashion border controller would fit in very nicely at these ground stations, too busy to take all this traffic off of satellite and be able to then manage the routing purchase managing the routing information. We have a feature inside Pro s BT that uses tables, mm. Do routing a very efficiently. So if a call from a remote base station a comes in, we can quickly pass it over to their Associated SIP trunk and vice versa, right? And so we may be able to do it by directionally. So, this label routing is a, is a technique that we've got built into the session border control, it makes routing very easy, but also to our transcoding resource. Sources that are available for proust BC, we're able to do very highly efficient high-density conversion between the G7 23 or g729. It comes from the remote site off, before it gets converted, the G7 11:00 and passed off the ship trunk providers. So this is a really, really good fit from a scale standpoint routing standpoint and from this trans code functionality of, you know, from a technical perspective. And on top of that when working with the engineers that extra aunts that they initially evaluated it off and they found it that would fit their their architecture and also to the operations of their organization really. Well, they are able to use an API to manage the page or routing tables. And also found it very easy to install and very easy to update. So it was a real good fit, not only from a technical standpoint, but also from an operational standpoint for the organization dead. In almost sounds like you guys actually exceeded their needs. Yes. And it's quite a few ways. We actually, when we actually got into the implementation, one of the main things is that the engineers were able to attend one of our training sessions. You know, we're still doing remote training during covid-19..

"But also making sure that the product is secure from Hackers from penetration attempts from things like denial-of-service attacks, which are which are very prevalent in common with voice systems running voice over IP. So, these systems ensure securing the real-time Communications both for The Voice path as well as making sure the system is secure so nobody can break into it. Your SBC is basically certified at the at the point. Is there any other Solutions packages that you have that are bundled with your species off? We do. So we have all of the all of the different models. For the SBC, both and Appliance version Appliance being by Hardware from ribbon, in stock it into the data center, to do the SBC function, or you buy it as a software package and loaded on your own server in a virtual environment. Both of those products are certified as well as the ribbon application server. So this is a, this is a product that would enter work with an s p. C to provide calling features conference Bridge has registration of users into the network. So the ribbon desk or SBC, as well as the ribbon application server are the current certified products. Where can our listeners find out a little bit more? So you can Google ribbon Communications, we have sections in the website for government specific applications. But feel free to take a look at our bbn.com or Google ribbon Communications. This is gone with, with the channel daily news from Telecom. Reseller speaking with Brad Chalker senior principal project manager with ribbon Communications and Brad being a marine. I want you to provide the most secure Communications as possible to my DOD friends. Okay. Absolutely. Thanks for having me.

"Yeah absolutely and and I think one of the things that happened last year of course would depend emack kind of put the dod and you know difficult birth Equation at times and and added some additional challenges to their Communications tools. Traditionally the the dod doesn't really allow things to go off site secure phone call for example has to be in a secure office and I think the the need for people to work from home. When the pandemic hit really opened the eyes of of government agencies and how long we going to communicate and how are we going to continue to operate? When our people have to work from home, the government has done a great job in the dod has done a great job planning for Global Warfare. But I'm not sure they were completely prepared for the, how communication needed to change was something like Global pandemic. Let's start digging into that a little bit. What does the SPC? 5400 jitc? Genetic certification mean for ribosome and the dod agencies. Yeah, so this this certification is a is a significant milestone for us in that. We are partnering with Microsoft to certify a session board controler product to go along with a teams deployment and teams has become the wrong. Kind of the de facto unified Communications product for the dod and the government agencies really the providing the way for them to communicate remotely both video and voice and conferencing, the traditional tools like zoom. And and some of these others have traditionally not been options for them and and the government has secure job. Their teams environments. So they can communicate securely, and one of the big primary functions of an SBC session border controller is to provide security for that voice connection as it leaves the teams environment, you have to secure it before it goes out over any kind of wide area network. And then you have to be able to decrypt it to go back into seems that the other end. And so, SBC is a critical component to do that. What the, what the jitc does with certifications is? They'll they'll certify products together. So they'll take three or four products from different vendors and allow you to put them together and certify it as a package. And this package of equipment gets certified and goes out the door so agencies can deploy the package and it's, it's significant for ribbon in that, you know, you can't. You can't take anybody else's product and substitute it into that certification. Now, once you're once you're certified as a whole solution, it has to be deployed as a whole solution. And so gives us the ability to provide security and the session border controller functionality for those teams deployments. I, you know, like I understand what you just saying here, but I have another question that I don't know that you you may have answered it or not, but why is it really so important for the government agencies to have that security teams, yeah, so I I think probably the biggest Factor there is the fact that you're placing calls from remote locations, so let's I'll give you an example. If if I'm if I'm at a remote location and I need to call into a team's bridge for example, that Communications path. From that remote caller through the telephone Network, the pstn or the voice over IP network in to that team's conference Bridge has to be six and they have to have confidence that it's secure. And so the fact that they used to make have these conference calls or have these meetings inside secure locations and now they're not able to age This, they're having to do things remotely, you have to still try to maintain the same level of security that you would had that you would have. If you're doing the meeting inside of a inside of a secure facility. How do the ribbon sbc's really ensure the secure real-time Communications for most sensitive environments. That's part of the reason why you have to go through the genetic process. It's one of the government's way of making sure that the product or secure, not only from the standpoint of securing that voice traffic when it goes through the network.

"Virgin. Mary was born as a child. He grew up and he suffered in everything that he went through for us and he died a whole horrific death on the cross and he did that for you in for me and so he didn't have to do that he didn't have to but he did he was he was obedient to the father and he loved it so much that he did he came and he died for us. He was our sacrifice. And so if you can turn away from that. You're never truly saved. Because the first thing i think about this guatemala gonna do like even at the rats with a charge if if i don't go before then and i am raptor like wow you know i what what. What are you going to do when you come face to face with. Jesus i'm gonna be on my face. I'll be on my face Just so thankful in so grateful because he saved a wretch like me above all centers on probably the most wretched center of all. And so i you know. I guess they they always say to like you know what was it. The two that owed so much money got on like africa had many deanery. It'd be like to say like the god of a million dollars right and so the guy came to with though you imprison in your whole family imprisoned until every last red cent is paid you know in the gossip. Oh please have mercy on me. Please have mercy on me. i'll pay of. Please have mercy on me in. So the guy did. He has mercy on him and forgives him of his debt. Right in here comes other guy he leaves. He's free of this million dollar debt. Here's another guy that owes him like. Say five bucks okay. And he you know he goes off on him and throws him into prison. As i always stuff and of course you know the king or the gaza's you wretched you know slave. Have i not forgiving you. You know so remember. That too much is given much is required. It's i think like Oh the the prostitute that you know. What jesus fee with her hair you know decried and washed her feet with her tears in know a few On his feet and he's in that fares these house and he goes eight thought himself. Oh that he was truly christ. If he was truly the messiah he would know what such woman was touching him. And that's when. Jesus said you know i've come into my. I have come into your house and you have not offered me water to wash my feet. You have not you know he goes on to tell that baresi you know everything in what the woman has done. She said Although her sins are are many she is forgiven. Much you know and so For us you know who's forgiven much. you know. We have a lot to be thankful for and so which to grateful for so Love with that spill. So i just wanted. I definitely just wanna jump on and talk about this as controversy and i'm totally disagree Blown away of how far were sliding into apostasy in the sp while they they are sought falling into policy in the sbc With goes to show you. They're the largest denomination. They were the largest conservative denomination in. Hell they were so far this sliding sliding down that slippery slope is on passer said today the slippery slope you know. Well i think they're. They're they're speeding down. That being pretty quick and as you'll see is only gonna get worse than you know. Spencer here on his on his Livestream talked about you know This new sbc president. He made his wife preaching together. Well we all know if you are a true bobble believer in you. Believe what the word of god says then. You know that women are not preachers. We are not preachers crisis. Said up his church he set it up and the head of the family. You know he is the head and then of courses demand in the woman the woman head over the children were y'all are submitted to christ in so In the church is the same way and so he set that up. He's given men and women different roles and biblically speaking. And here we have this. Sbc neo evangelical martyrised total liberal Coming in and i'm telling you is not going to be long. I would give it to the end of this year before the sbc starts dating women pastors. I find it a funded ironic. Because i remember when the methodist church so that they were gonna ordaining women ministers and homosexuals and they said oh they can still serve and when they voted on that believes in philadelphia. They've voted on that. Lightning struck that steep one. That steeple crashed to the ground. And that was a pretty monumental moment. And if if i was in the church that had happened up think i would way out. Oh man god is trying to tell us something you know but no. They didn't see that we've got warning them. So here we have it all the major partisan religions are just sliding down this hill and It's it's quite disturbing. But while also got a little bit of my voice hero on jimbo onto headlines real quick this is red dragon rising and this is the china pairing for future invasions of america.

We've got some major issues going on this week on myself self southern baptist raised southern baptist. And what i see happening in have seen happening in the southern baptist convention breaks my heart Technically left the sec. Back in twenty. Seventeen for what i saw. That was happening. So technically i consider myself a fundamental baptist but let's get onto the headlines and a really really want to talk about what's going on in the sbc so if you guys were not aware they elected a president and It seems to me that it was a stolen election. You say that. I'm gonna say i'm gonna say it. Many of the people are saying that people who aren't even Southern baptist. They're saying this was a stolen election This guy that was elected he didn't talk to the churches he didn't want to call it. Quote unquote campaign While you know. Mike stone did he wouldn't touch churches and he was the conservative choice. Of course our molar is calvin est. Get conservative you know and neither one of these guys got it This guy that no one's ever heard of god it's and he is a moderate of all moderates. He is a liberal. I've got some video Here i'm gonna show you play for you guys Talking about him him his wife preaching together Now one thing he can he can almost take to the bank With baptist or you could have back in. The day was that women do not preach we We believe in complementary as which means men and women have different roles in the church in christ set that up in a way in so i'm very disheartened to see what is going on in uh technically really did leave the southern baptist convention years ago When they came up with this Will the bible's not inherent in the some believed that the bible is an air of course about was aaron is inherent. Are you kidding me. And we have people that are that are up in this organization. I want to call it now. That don't believe that the bible is an errant you know is the word of god that is not a. There's no error in the word of god. I mean get out if he does get. What are you even doing here. What are you doing in the church. What why are you here. So it very much angers me. I attended a church For ten years where. I live currently i left. I left the church in two thousand and seventeen. 'cause i could tell that they were going the route of social justice and you know when you don't want one sunday you know it was like you don't need to be looking out you know. We don't need to be looking up for jesus. No no we need to be looking out into the community. We need to be going. And you know blah blah blah social justice you know crud in i was like are you kidding me at all. Maybe i just heard it wrong. You know and so i you. Next sunday same thing. It was more to social Justice stuff and has nothing to do with the gospel. And so i was like you know ma. Bobble tells me that i'm to be looking up for jesus i am to be looking for jesus. His return is imminent which means it can happen at any moment in so I left church. I remember printing off the printed off the Off the sermon. Because you know a copied it word for word off of off. the website. Wanted to make sure that. I gotta ride. I sent it to jan marquel at all previews dot org acid that to her. Because i thought well maybe Maybe i misheard maybe at in here correctly and so i want you know a another perspective with better disarmament that i have with more wisdom than i have and so. She emailed me back and she goes. You're right they're going source of social justice and so i decided to leave the church that i attend now is an sbc church but we were very conservative. Sbc church ever thankful for that. And i don't think we're too happy with who was elected The sbc president. But what a one to play for you guys of if. Watch it on my youtube. You're going to be able to see it if you listen to music podcasts. Here this is spencer. Smith and the title of his youtube is going to be the end of the sbc and this was his livestream. That was on. June the seventeenth so It the end of the sbc. The limits of love in the purity of the church and he's a fundamental baptist. And i have to say I'm i am a fundamental baptist More ammo a southern baptist Uc back in the day like mammal. Toby my aunt elway's they always tell me heather. If you're looking for church in a good church you can't go wrong with a southern baptist church. Well now i'm telling you folks today you can go wrong with the southern baptist. Church nowadays So be sure whatever you do is you. Talk to that pastor if you're gonna attended sbc church and you find out where that pastor stands were that church stands on doctrinal theology because that's most important s most important so i'm going to play a little bit here of Spencer smith talking about what was going on in the. Sbc in he. He says it's so much better than i can. He is very eloquent. And he's if you guys have listened to him on his youtube channel man. Please go check him out. He's got third atom and he's got Three documentaries in it'll tell you all about the rise of the divine feminine. That's going on right. Now he'll tell you the alumni body Everything this bingo on satanism. All the stuff that has infiltrated our churches. Because you know satan come in one of the guys in my sunday.

Go do your own thing but you can't be here. Because as christians we deal with things directly Yeah amen to that and the only thing say about your situation with kirk kennedy but that confrontation that you had for the first forty five minutes to a lot of women was probably very uncomfortable and my wife be celery stairs. And i'm not even saying that in a negative way but oftentimes. That's how men deal with. Things are direct you. You're confrontational you. Address the issues and then things like what you said get to happen and you know the reconciliation can happen. But we don't even have men willing to do that to each other and they go and they act like women and they go gossip and become busy bodies and slander their brothers in continue to sin instead of at least confronting them and having some kind of masculine way to resolve things. And that's something that we're missing a lot from our side we're just letting the other side do whatever they want. Be the slimy manipulating weasels. They are manipulating week. Women that the bible says this is all in the bible. This is what the bible warns us about and tells us how to deal with this right dude. We gotta be men about this stuff. We we are. We are lead even if we don't participate in the gossip in the busy body nece and all that were encouraging it by not nip it in the bud right were encouraging it by letting them up this way. Russell moore has operated this way for his entire career. There's no way he should have been allowed to resign from the er. He should have been fired. The minute you found out he acted like this and it was just a pattern. He was never gonna stop you confront him. You do what you gotta do but then you him. He's gonna do his dirty deeds anyway but let them do it on his own dime. Don't pay for it. Stop paying for people that do their dirty deeds like this. This is ridiculous. And it's like this is not just a russell moore thing. I'm not trying to beat up on russell moore. He's just the most obvious. Example of this is rampant. This is just rampant in the sbc. The guy that. I'm talking about in the sec. He's low tier. He's like he's like a d lister right. I'm not talking. He's not a big or nothing like that but but it's just the same mentality.

I mean you got many layers from unions to being a political candidates author. So let's kinda start at the beginning talk about a career in telecommunications how did that how did the split a ma bell like affect you directly and i was gonna say but some of our younger viewers and watch. Can you explain it in just what my bill was. Chair ma. bell was World for a lot of people that work for the phone company and it was the same place to work. You never have to worry about your job going to weigh. It was going to be there for life and a lot of diets. He's gonna started that way. A lot of people. There are grandmother work their their mother worked there and then they work their in in their expecting their their daughter to work there but a lot of things happen around nineteen eighties. When was mci world com was trying to get into long long distance business. Because that's where the money was done and We eight hundred block everywhere they could so finally they sued in federal court and the federal court said. Well you can either give them all this money or you can just break up the whole thing no longer a monopoly or whether they call it ought oligarchy. Company agreed to that. and in the meantime. Nci went belly up. They're no longer around enjoying the spoils of their Lawsuit so it was a scary time. We were used to having to gloves and compete in the open market and A lot of companies went by the wayside more were gobbled up by seven companies are created in the wake of the waco.

"Dead. When it comes to the sbc's again as a relates to you cast and you cast Solutions can the Enterprise rely on their legacy an off-premises the sbc's well. It depends really in some cases. They can it really depends on the scenario. The thing that we see happening is that for years because we had that traditional, you know, this is going to buy or whatever the might LP BX environment and we got our ship trunks or are for that appear eyes, you know, they came from the telephone Network. They came down into our Enterprise later on the gift of data center. And then they connected to our traditional PBX and the SPC has been there for more than a decade to provide that that demarcation point for those sip Trunks and off cases even convert them for people into a more traditional telephony environment, but but what's happened now is that with the increased interest in things like Microsoft teams and zoom phone number? And others is it customers are beginning to realize hey, if I don't end up with this PBX or some other piece of Hardware in my premises, why would I bring dial tone down there? And if I'm not if I don't need to bring dial tone down into the premises if I have a cloud-based service. What am I just have the dial phone shipped from the service provider directly back into my ucaas or Cloud communication providers environment. I'll skip that detour down into my office because my skip the detour I don't have to worry about things like a local Power Ranger Johnny with the backhoe who accidentally digs up my fiber optic cable that goes into my building. So so we're seeing this big migration not just a club out communication services, but we're seeing dial tone moved to the cloud as well. And when that happens customers say I want to put my SBC I want to put my security element dead. In the cloud as well. And so we're we're seeing a big increase in interest in people acquiring rsbc Services directly from saying Microsoft Microsoft Azure orbs a w s cloud environments. Okay. So what other options do Enterprise organizations have when it comes to the ESP sees well really should have a few different things, you know, we touched on the have Hardware they still have virtualized software if they want to acquire their own off-the-shelf commercial off-the-shelf Hardware. They can use our software to do that long. As I mentioned. They can take our software and deploy it we have it all set up so you can use it in the public cloud and then last but not least. We've also now delivered as a service model. So if you don't need to buy any of the hardware, you don't want to touch any of the pieces, you.

So the future is in the cloud right and and having a software-based sec gives you that that Advantage financed from a financial standpoint wage. They they bought online is companies and Distributors and and resellers want to save money and maximize profit most most companies wants to walk, you know, lower expenses and maximize profits. If you have a choice to have an hardware-based that is susceptible to Hardware failure took it on the environment or to have a software that you can spin off and not even worry about it as much as trying to configure multiple Hardware wage to speak with each other software is the feature and that's why we're strictly software-based company and we have no plans into you know going into Hardware. So Eddie, how do you sell your products? Well, we we markets to the Microsoft environment. We have 60-day trials that we give to walk anyone that's interested in it. And without trial. We give you a full technical support at no costs. And so we sell to Distributors we sell to resellers game. Please sell it to system integrators and the the best way to put it is this your request the trial license will give you a trial ends on Thursday. And then we have different pricing mode. We have the Perpetual purchase license or we have the monthly subscription and you try it out with full support. And our response time we pride ourselves in in responding to every ticket and costs. So we sell it through the Asia markets AWS page and you can just download the software and spin it off. It's easy. We try and simplify sales strategies. Are there opportunities here for both resellers and Distributors? Absolutely. Absolutely. We do have Partners resellers. We have Partners the page lists and what we expect is that they take online training class that we did familiar with the first level support and they have huge benefits and incentives that we give up and resellers we give them a minimum of 35% discount in in in any of our software with extensive training and job. Sometimes software is is a new experience for companies that have traditionally sold but they Hardware have companies found success as they've always sort of, you know, so long the an on-premise SEC. Is it the new experience for them to sell software companies? They they very good in their hardware and they break into software migrating software into their Hardware environment. Uh, I will knock it because there's always going to be demand for you know, the physical on praying hard way, but most of them also have the software version. So they they they have two options that they they picked out there and I can't tell you that way. You know, it's a bad way to go. It's whatever fits you need be restaurant resellers. There's some Enterprise that wants the hardware the physical. Parts, so they can see feel and touch it and you know, some of these SBC providers are actually trying to you know, Market both systems wage strictly.

"Not only protect their network from possible intrusion or attack, but also needed to do at a patient of mine from one flavor to another. And this. Intended Right. From the very very early days until today and it is one of the primary roles of a session border controller. Is Not only protecting the network from Bad, behavior. ABBERANT and bad behavior but also to to provide a compatibility and interoperability, and then there's a number of other small little responsibilities that are like kind of along the lines of well as long as I have the packet right here, I might as well do this to it, and one of them is for examples, call recording in and legal intercept and things like that. So it's really become a crossroads for packets as they go in and out of service providers and also in and out of enterprises. and.

There's a cloud based contact center platform, and then It needs connectivity into the public network to be able to allow callers to call in or to make outbound calls into the public network for the the context centers and many of them want to be able to interface with multiple carriers around the globe and have regional telephone call in numbers, for example. And to do that those cloud based contact centers need have. session border controllers that of fit within your architecture, which means they're cloud based. And are pro specie cloud based session porter. Controller has turned out to be a really really good fit for these kinds of applications and. And some notable ones. One of them is air calls a french-based. Hosted context center that provides a business services who I think some eighty plus countries around.

"I'll do it. So here's what I want to talk about. So if you remember Marcus Pittman. Last week was very passionate about how great twitter's which is very unusual because most Christians are. Christians are supposed to hate twitter. They're supposed to say it's bad ended Anger and stuff like that in Marcus. Great well here. We have An article from two days ago on the Gospel Coalition and it's titled No Social Media Algorithm Rewards grace which is very good title. I like that and it's talking about this. This Atlantic article the Atlantic. There was an article from a psychologist. Basically said that social media is perfect for destroying democracy because it puts people in these ideological echo chambers and people just get really it rewards anger rewards rage because the algorithm likes engagement. And so it's much easier to spread something that people get angry about than it is to spread something that people are happy about and so the whole point of the article is saying. And that's that's a problem for the church because the church is supposed to be you know lovely what urge they're thinking of the church is supposed to be lovely and so we can't. We can't engage in this and so what it does is gives a couple of pieces of junk can't even get through. Oh you're posing yourself together or pulling yourself together. You just see a bunch of red flags in the beginning. Whenever I see a Christian article that references the Atlantic I know it's sideways and then proceeding. Atlantic is social psychologist. When we start referencing. These things were going off the rails really quickly. Yeah so so. Here's where the RUB Rilya so the author says likewise today's social media platforms create conditions. That may be hostile to consider it. Christ like Communication Wall. Social media can be a place to learn groner Christian faith. It often feels like a black hole resembling an endless void of darkness. That can't be penetrated by light by any kind of lights. What are Christians to do? And the idea here is that we shouldn't abandon it but instead we should spread. Sorry we should. We should spread you know messages. Like this for example. Are you a gifted photographer? We'll take pictures and spread them. Just about God's beauty. I think this is a good idea by the way I have seen pictures of nature stuff and he says celebrate goodness and righteousness so instead of re tweeting something to be angry about re tweet something good shares. You know someone did some community service or something to that manifest kindness. So this is you know if you have an author that you really like reach out to Mon- twitter and tell them how great they are be kind be generous basically stuff like that just spread peace and love and joy. That's what he's that's his. That's his suggestions are and none of these are bad suggestions. I'M NOT GONNA. I'm not GonNa do that but it really just it. It really abandons it. It's really the opposite of what Marcus said. We should use social media for. Don't you think your exact opposite and so a here's what I think is going on here and you guys can comment on this or Matt. You can tell me what you think but what I think is going on here. Is That Gospel. Coalition and these types. The the big Eva types that we always talk about the conference speakers the authors the power structures. They're getting their teeth kicked in on social media. They're failing at it. And there's this is a good example because I'm an upstart youtube channel. You know what I mean upstart two years ago I started And I ranked number three when you type in E. R. LC. They're getting their teeth kicked in by people that have relatively little experience in two years. And so what are they? GonNa do about that. Well THEY START. Writing articles about how social media is bad at how anyone who uses it for anything besides pictures of flowers and encouraging words to your favorite authors which is the power structures essentially and and and re tweeting community service and stuff like that is is a center. I mean. He doesn't outright say that but he does basically everything but say that it's our sin. Nature's that make us want to fight. It's our sin. Nature is that that makes us re tweet things that make us angry and He it almost makes it seem like social media is like this unique place where that stuff is just cultivating and it's just so preposterous. I said this at a video the day like this. There's always been mobs. They just used to be modest. Go and take you out stone you instead of post mean gifts at you. You know what I mean. It's just so crazy and so I think that they're losing in social media. And so this is like the last ditch effort to try to stop the bleeding. I think Dave critical theory can be a tool but social media. Can't yeah I just WanNa Ford. This article often people in Muslim countries and in China Christians. What do they think about this at all the Saudi Going on But Yeah I totally agree with you and I think it's even more. They realize that the power is shifting. The platform shifting. Its leaving the stage leaving the seminary. It's leaving the convention centers and it is on Youtube and it is on twitter on facebook. Listening to this is from the article that they are quoting right and so he pulled the author of the Gospel. Coalition blog pulled this out of the article. So he thinks this is important right MHM. He says this. The news feeds algorithm. Nick ordering of content flattened the hierarchy of credibility any post by any producer. Could to the top of our feeds as long as it generated enough engagement. This is the Gospel this is. This is the issue for the Gospel Collision. They're scared that when you type it in Gospel coalition you see some eighty robots videos. They don't like that. Because who am I I? I don't have a seminary degree. I'm not a pastor. I've never even spoken at a conference before and that really worries them. They don't like that that it's it's it's easy for a guy like me relatively speaking. It's very hard but to buy a fifty dollar camera. A fifty dollar microphone get an Internet connection. That's not that expensive and I can put out a message that gets just as many clicks as Russell. Moore's message who gets paid thousands upon thousands of dollars to do this and has a probably humongous budget right. I know I mean and that really scares them. It really scares them. Look at this post that we were referencing with Matt Holland. Facebook was posted. Tuesday hundred and twenty-two likes nine shares. Yup The provost this is an up and comer. And this is this guy. He's GonNa be in the big seat pretty soon. Yeah Marcus Pitman had nine thousand people listening to him at once on Youtube. Nine thousand and that's all this. Matt can get it. They're scared and not only. Are they scared of losing their power? But like what you said. They don't want people criticizing them be nice. You Know Pitch Post pictures of your puppy but because not only can we rank on their searches and we are on their pages for lack of a better term on all these different platforms. It's we're calling them out on their business and they don't like that this like like the way. These articles work is that it's not terrible. Some of this advice is pretty good. Like if you find yourself 'cause I see this kind of thing. A lot like people will say how toxic they find twitter right and how. It's so discouraging. I saw a woman. I'm not gonNA name 'cause has it's not you know point to it. But she basically said that like nothing has hurt her more than the attacks that she gets on twitter and this woman's been through like physical things that almost killed her and so really. It's saying that it's actually worse to get mean tweets right and so I'm not gonNA deny that she feels that way. I don't have any reason to. I'm sure she does. But like if that's you get off twitter. It's not worth it. I think people want run around thinking. That guys like you and me are on twitter all day. I can't believe he said that. I gotta get guys. I don't care I just don't somebody. Somebody sent me a mean gift of that video. Where a slam my desk L. honest? I really didn't mean to do that just happened. He sent me immune Gif of Of Michael Scott Hidden his desk like a child. You know what I mean and I get the impression that people think like think about that all day and I'm just like doing I can't wait to get you back. It's like guys I don't care if I if if my psyche was was really being affected by twitter if I felt like I was getting given to anger because of twitter and stuff like that I would get off. It's not that big a deal. Yeah I think it's a great tool but it's not our lives and I think I think this is the other thing too is like what we're saying. It's moving from the seminaries. It's moving from their conferences in the public square is twitter and it's important to be on there but like any tweet that comes out of me. I want to examine it. And if they're right than I wanted to change repents or critique myself and that's as far as it goes it's not going to ruin my day. I've never gone home cried about it. Let me say something else too. Because twitter and facebook and social media is it's it's virtual. It's not the same but it's it's a public space. It's a public square. And and I'm not GonNa say that this is the case with this this author because I don't know him out of say something about him. That's not true but any any of you who have actually gone out and evangelize street. Witness restrict preached no that that this kind of conflict in this kind of toxicity that he's just like I can't believe social media is city in no. It didn't know it didn't try. Try Go into temple with the message of Jesus Christ Temple University in Philadelphia. Preach a sermon relatively tame and see what happens. See what happens. Yeah we should get on. Campus Preacher on. Keith Daryl. Talk about some of this story. This is written like a guy who doesn't understand that when when you bring the Gospel and you bring and you tell people that that Christ is there. And he's he seated at the right hand and he's he's he's in charge and you have to listen to him and this is what he says you ought to. Do you need to repent and then you have to change your ways. You can't send anymore. He's he's actually Taza message for how you should live. You don't get to decide he decides Bring that message to anyone at any public square whether it's social media or something else and yeah maybe you can't get re tweeted when you're in person but this is written like someone who doesn't know what that's about. Yeah it's like academic to them philosophical in my experience and this could be anecdotal and I'm not saying this is the case every time but oftentimes the people that are the most angry at you and become most resistant are the ones that are both convicted And oftentimes later on will come and say hey man. I converted like I became a Christian. I was you know. They were convicted. Then that often seems like it's anger and intolerance and aggressiveness. Not Saying that's with everyone but like those are the people that need to hear the Gospel to yeah absolutely absolutely. If you're the title this article I I like it. Just because of I like plays on word like this. But but if you're looking for social for social media New Media Algorithm to reward you for grace or truth or or love real love not the squishy kind like if you're looking to that to start row if you think that this kind of a stupid plan is GonNa work and twitter all of a sudden. He's GonNa find Jesus because you posted a picture of a flower and it's GonNa Start. Re tweeting that because the algorithm is what reward you for grace. You've got another thing coming. That's not where you get rewarded for grace. You get rewarded from Your heavenly father. Who Sees in secret And so when you share a tweet that triggers a bunch of lefties. Because you say you know like you shouldn't kill your child you know what I mean or like you know like if your son has a pianist and he's a boy and if and if she has vagina and then she's a girl and that enrages a bunch of liberals at your heavenly father season secret and he'll he'll reward you You don't have to wait for twitter rewards. You like. That's really stupid. And even by their definition or their arguments if no social media algorithm rewards grace. Then no one's going to see her pictures anyway so you just should not be on twitter on facebook. But I don't think the point is like like as Christians. We should we should be. We should be trying to change how this works instead. Spread love instead of hate and the thing is like sometimes spreading love. Looks like telling a bunch of lefties dude if your son has a penis that he's a boy that kind of just disregard that it disregards the kind of love that we see with a zealous Christ. has zeal for his father's house. It disregards the kind of love that we see with the zeal of the Prophets. The zeal of Paul and the apostles and stuff like that. It disregards all of that which is what the Gospel coalition articles like. This always do. They always disregard that. That's that's not part of love..

"And so he explodes and so we don't have. I'm not glad he exploded. In that regard like like we can have these conversations in a level-headed way without youtube videos. Stuff like that. We certainly can. But if you're not going to talk then we'll have to do the empty chair thing where we're talking to an empty chair in everyone's going to be like oh the tones of so we'll get. It didn't have to come to this but we're going to have the conversation one way or the other half the shame you into it then. I will do that Yeah Eric's peace peace when you want to get a piece. It's shenanigans off de la power play. And they don't like that they're getting resistance to a lot of this and I think this is something we need to remind people often throughout this whole battle. The people that are calling out sin are not the ones causing division. It's the sinful people that are causing the division and we sometimes can like get that confused and think that. Oh I don't want to cause division so I'm going to cover up that sin not deal with it or I'm going to ignore it or I'm going to look the other way and I'm not just talking about this. Spca and this organization just talking about in general families churches everywhere but we need to confront sin call people to repentance and it's not us being the ones device that when we do that it's always the thin that's divisive. Now here's where we have to. I'M GONNA push back a little bit but but you're exactly right. So here's the thing week bringing people always talk about having humility in this stuff and I am. I'm on board with that. Humility is a very good thing. And so when we see so. So here's the scenario that you just described. There's someone bringing in sin to the church and someone's calling out that sin okay Now it could be that that person who's calling out that sin is is the righteous one person bringing in the Senate as bad or maybe this person calling the sin is wrong and that's actually not sin and it's actually a fine and so that's why the conversation needs to happen because so often it's like you just hate me or you're just trying to destroy me or you're just a scoff or you're just a troll and it's like there is no conversation so so when that's the response that there's no question who's the wrong one. I'll give you a personal example in my life and I'm not gonNA name any names but but there's there's people in my life that that that I've made very upset know that's hard for you to believe but this was very upset and video. I'm talking about my youtube content but so very offensive youtube content and so they say you need to stop it and I said you know I'd be glad to stop it but we're going to have to talk about it because I'm obviously not gonNA stop it if there's nothing wrong here and so there's a conversation that needs to happen right and what I get in response is a wall of accusations and no offer for conversation and and when there's no offer for conversation with Google is pick up the phone. Let's chat about this. Let's talk about this. Get some give and take here and it's just shut down every time that's where there's a division there that shouldn't be there because we need to figure out. Who's the offender here? It's not necessarily instantly obvious if I've offended somebody or anyone's offended somebody. We need to get to the bottom of it and the only way you can do that is through. The Bible has a very nice approach. This you talk to the person one on one you talk to You. Talk it out. They don't and then if that doesn't work you bring in some friends to help you out because you know. Sometimes it's hard to get outside of yourself to see objectively what's going on and then if that doesn't work you know you bring in the elders and the whole church and all that stuff. God's way is so good but we haven't even gotten to step one a lot of time right. Yeah so me ask you this then with that process. What do you say to the people that argue that? Hey you guys on Youtube need to stop calling people out publicly. That are making these public comments. You need to go to them individually first and then bring some friends and then go to the church stop doing it publicly first of all his smokescreen because often that already happened and people just like to say it hasn't happened even though it has and so oftentimes. That's just completely false from the beginning John Harris license talk about this stuff. All the time. Where he'll criticize? Danny Aitken or whoever and people will be Will you go to him? Directly was yeah. I talked to him I already do. You know what I mean but but the reality is that that that that's the example that we see in scripture of calling people out publicly for public preaching. It's just too obviously clear. Part of the job of a of a pastor is to to guard against error and to and to teach and stuff like that And and there's nothing in the Bible that says he needed to keep it. All of the theoretical never apply in fact this part of the job of the passengers to apply it So so you know we can certainly talk about that and and I'm not willing to say that I've never crossed that line where I should've maybe gone to someone directly. We can certainly talk about that but the fact that you skipped that step. So let's just say that all my youtube videos are all sinful. Because I skipped the first step was just. Give them everything every video. That still doesn't absolve you from coming to have that conversation with me. So just because I've messed up doesn't mean all of a sudden well since you messed up. Who Cares now? You still have a responsibility on you rent. And I'm not granting that for a second that might have been simple what I'm saying is if they even if they were you still have that responsibility right. If that's what you're going to go with there you go. You need to come to me Definitely and I think too like there's a difference between addressing and going to brother who sinned against you. Of course they're going through this process there is and then having to confront people that are trying to shape culture that are sitting at the gates and trying to influence and change. How a group of either Church or organization or whatever and if they're doing it and going the wrong way if you go talk to them behind the scenes give him a little phone call and no one ever talks about that phone call then what was said in air is going to stand and be the you know the. I don't know what you would call it like being the standard or being what everyone thinks is right so there needs to if there is a public issue that needs to be confronted or address then it needs to be done because it impacts more than just the two parties that are going back and forth and conflict as well. And that's what I would say to that whole argument as well. Yeah absolutely no. You're absolutely right. You don't have to accept the premise of that argument. But even if you do it's still doesn't you know what I mean? Yeah you touch on something to that. I've been seeing a lot lately and kind of drives me nuts as they try to justify aston or bad behavior by pointing to something else. I've been seeing that with women pastors and this whole abuse thing like Oh. You're getting so upset that you the SBC invited a woman pastor but there's people that have abuse in the church and they're tolerating it so you should say anything. I've been seeing that so much and it's a why. Where are we as a church where we are going to excuse because of other sin like? Why are you even talking about that argument? You deal within individually you. Don't use other Syndey justify sin. Are you kidding me? That's what makes me think there's more to it when people in leadership positions are trying to use that line of reasoning and argument to make their case then I know something is up and it's not just straightforward. You're carrying about what you're talking about. Well it's so easy to to call these people out of stupidity like that because all you gotta do is say. Oh Yeah give us too so now. Can we talk about the women? Think okay. So let's stop playing games right. You know what I mean. It's the same thing with like with like when you go to abortion clinics. We talked to a parole boards. Look you make sure all today as well. It's not really that. Is it so let? Let's have an adult conversation. Then please yeah right well. Will you believe the death penalty? And it's like I expect this nonsense from the world but I don't expect it from the church I it's it's really sad. Was the death penalty ones get? Okay okay cool. Well the death penalty and also abortion. And you call that. You're not so so let's stop playing games. The other stuff laying gains. Please speaking of silliness in Games going back to matt halls comment and circling the wagons. There's just some things here that to me. Seem like he's playing the Games and one of the lines he has he has an. Im statement diatribe. Basically so it's like John. Wherever the John I am. Statements are tried to reference. It slipped my head. That's what I get for trying to be spiritual budget. But he says I am certain that southern Baptist renounce any form of racism and longest denomination that is more ethnically diverse fueled by a distinctly biblical vision and the power of the spirit. And before we talk about this because there's a few things I wanna hit here. That makes me think that he's being less than genuine. When he's talking about this stuff is your point of not using racism because it's not a Biblical term but rather using favoritism is critical and very important as we go through this debate and conflict with people that are trying to bring in critical race theory. And I just WANNA say kudos tip of the hat to you for bringing that up because I think they can no longer use the power play of. Oh you're just a white racist. If we're saying well the bibles and talk about racism talks about favoritism so don't you start favoring certain groups of people on your end as well and it kind of levels the playing field so I think that's genius on the Bible's part continues on your part to bring it back to Biblical terms? Why well thanks So with that did I kinda sum up what you were saying. There's something you'd like to add to that for people on the show that maybe haven't heard you talk about talk about that. No no I I think so. Yeah I'll say this I'll say this so I made a video that said I don't care about racism or something like that or racism is not a sin or something like that. It's a little bit. Everyone give you a thumbs up on that one. It's a little bitty. I'll be honest but the premise is that racism these days its defining so ridiculous ways that if someone called me a racist I it doesn't even register with me. I don't care I don't care. I'll never repent of it because I don't even know you're talking about half the what I don't understand is partiality favoritism things like that. So if you're telling me that something I did shows that I favour white people over black people. Oh now we're talking here that because that's a sin you don't I mean that's a sin but racism could mean anything. Racism can mean. Well you have one black friend and ten white friend. So you're racist. I'm not gonNA repented that and I'm not racist so I don't care if I and that's what racism means. I don't care right and this is funny because the Matthew Hall Tweet Matthew. Khawla comment here. I am certain that southern Baptist renounce any form of racism and Matthew Hall if you remember how to video where he talked about how he is a racist or white. Supremacist he He said both I think. Yeah and He's going to struggle with racism until glory until the day he dies. He is a racist. He's taking that as part of his identity. That's what he said in this video and it's like we all kind of know it was. It was fun to sort of say. Okay so then you should fire yourself because we can't tolerate racism in the SBC. We all kind of knew he didn't really mean racist racist. He meant Phoney Baloney critical theory..
"sbc" Discussed on Reformgelical
"Eight fifteen twenty minutes to start a show because of some special guests can't get their tech working. Welcome to reform. Delco were deformed and evangelical meet. My name is not Williams Co hosted by the great eighty rootless. I wouldn't say great I would say pretty good now. I would say legendary. I was looking through youtube searching. Just you know show notes or meaning materials things to discuss and I was typing in the Er LLC and you came up third wind. The search engine E. R. Elsie. Not Year Elsie. Eighty robe last year L. See what's wrong with them and you know like who hates Russell. More just E. R. L. C. And you were there. They must hate that. So I don't know man but I'm working on making that more consistent so as you should. Did you hear that sir? Marcus who was on our show last week for those of you listening or watching He did a livestream on Youtube and got eight thousand people watching him at once. Yeah wow he said it was a mistake but I don't know man. The Algorithm doesn't make mistakes. No DEFINITELY NOT ON UTAH. It's all knowing all knowing. Yeah so that makes me think we need to try a google hangouts and youtube someday. Yeah absolutely that might be something coming in the future because he made some money off of it to. I GUESS. People were paying to leave comments. That called Super Chats. Yeah you have to pay money a certain amount of money to get your comment on the on the stream and usually people use it for like live. Qna's and stuff so you want you know so and so to answer your question. Give them five bucks. Answer your question that kind of thing but I guess people used to call you stupid. That's pretty stupid. I am more than happy. It kind of goes under our goal for this year of lay down. Cover fire for people that I'll be more than happy to take a fee to be called stupid. I know we're getting salted here for free. Eric says that's right. Hey Eric a winner you and your wife. GonNa come on the show that needs to happen. And let's say hey dave Welcome to the show. That's a first time listener for those of you. Who are watching this. Rerun you can watch us live on Thursdays eight thirty PM Eastern. If you go to John Dot com slash reform jellicoe. You can come join us. Live and you guys Just helped make the show better. So we'd appreciate that find us on all the social media sites at Reform Jellicoe. Police subscribe share the show and all that good stuff the joker in the Dark Knight. That won't point says that if you're good at something you shouldn't do it for free and I am quite good. I get insulted so I need to figure out a way to monetize that I think super chat might be the answer. Supercharge might be the answer and indeed all right time for our favorite segments conspiracy theory segment. Do you have a conspiracy theory for us? Let's see I asked the question. The the host Does anyone have any? And I didn't know. No one has a conspiracy theory. I have one I think Michael Blooberg is GONNA by himself. The Democrat nominee. That's not a conspiracy theory than the common knowledge. Is it common knowledge? You think everyone everyone saying that. Did you hear they change the rules? Just so that he could be on the debate stage and get destroyed no. I didn't hear that that sounds pretty good. Though there was a requirement of how many individual fundraisers you needed to have and they just magically said. That's not going to count any more. They really hate Bernie a really really very that is not GonNa win people asking like do you think he can beat trump. I don't think he can beat his own party not going to get. It passed those super delegates. Are you kidding me? I love the super delegates. You Know Young. And and here's the thing people will say. Okay so maybe maybe they did. Change the rules. I don't know that. Sounds like a pretty good conspiracy theory to me. But I don't think it's that because I I watch a lot of youtube you know work and I listened to in the background every five minutes. My my video gets interrupted with a stupid Michael Bloomberg video. That's awful and he's talking about how you were. He tells tells. Young people should get rid of the word I and we and in the video. It's like all I and we are not we all I and me and it's like dude. Get Out of my youtube. I don't want you on my you do. He's the most unrelatable person that could possibly run if you see him like interacting with people that WanNa take pictures with him. He's very standoffish. This is not a likable guy. There's no way he's winning. He used to live in New York and his big thing to try to be relatable was that he would take the subway to work every day. You would take the subway to city hall and you know but it's stupid because got his bodyguards. Stupidest thing ever. Everyone just gets because those. Those trains are routed as it is. We don't need extra bodies when a president comes into town everyone's all mad. 'cause the traffic's worst. That happens in your all the time and that that the where the UN is. That's where he'd always go right back home. It was the worst thing ever Navy. Not ever but it was bad. Yeah I could see that. Do you know Tuesday was Tuesday? No Tuesday was circle the wagons day for the SBC. I'll molar came out and went on a podcast called Baptist twenty one where he was talking about how great everything is going on the SBC. How confident he is that we're GONNA be reconciled and SBC and that the future looks great and all of this really positive stuff and actually have to say. Thank Eric for this because I found out about the podcast from him so eric. Thank you for a stolen sharing that on twitter. Would you say he's a troublemaker? He is a troublemaker. That's why it needs to be on the show. We're a bunch of troublemakers and then also at the same time. Almost like it was planned almost like it was planned out hall which I shared with you earlier. Ad decided to talk about how unified. We are on facebook as well and I just think it's funny with all the stuff that is going on right now in the SBC like do they not think we're gonNA see right through this. Do they not think that we can see the stuff I don't know I think you said this and so I'm probably stealing from you but it it was so perfect it reminds me of the CEO on like an investor? Call or something like where things are going well but of course everything is is an opportunity in sending them selves up for Growth. It sounds so good you know what I mean. It really does remind you of that. It's so easy to see through. I know it really doesn't do it. You have to do it right. You can't be a CEO and have a call especially if you're a publicly traded company and you have all these investors these institutional investors. You can't come and say I don't know how many pull this together guys. We have a lot of division inside of our organization and I just you know people are wanting to do completely different things that are against our vision and I tried to talk to them behind the scenes of it. They're going to do their own thing. Like you can't say that. And that's exactly what they're doing. It's it's sad honestly. It's really sad because you expect it from a business like you get it. It's business but from a church organization. There's an old There's an old folks sane. It's called whistling past the graveyard. What it means is that you know goes past the graveyard. You're freaked out because it's kind of scary. So you just whistle like everything's fine. I'm not scared. Sees the big nick. How the question liberals wanted to get rid of the electoral college or throw their votes in automatically with liberal states to conservatives considering splitting state. This isn't a question. Where's your question. This way to justice state. Reps and senator numbers might create a worse problem for liberals. I have no idea nick. I don't I don't know I'm not sure how to follow that one either Just not smart enough. Yeah Nick. I'm sorry you need to go joining your question. That a third grader understands okay. I'm GONNA do some little insider baseball for everyone watching right now. It is really hard to be on camera talking. Try to carry a show while reading and understanding questions so if you could just you know treat us like we're two year olds really hopeful of it. It's funny because I agree. There was a lot of circling the wagons. I I kept seeing. You know all kinds of people talking about healthy. We support Russell. More we support the euro. See all the big guns. Everyone got out of bed to throw their weight behind the URL. See all this stuff and It's it's good to see because to me. It tells me that that the the conversation the the the the battle is going to happen and it has to. It has to happen. It has to happen in honestly. People are kind of getting discouraged by all this. I feel like some people are just tired of having to talk about Beth more having to have these conversations on twitter but honestly it's encouraging me. Yeah because if we weren't living in this time it would have been a lot easier to circle the wagons. It would have been a lot easier to present this front of unity and these people would have been able to go a lot further before finding any resistance. And that's what we're seeing yet. Yes yes and in a reminds me of you know that I do remember everyone. Who's listening to you? Remember the shepherds conference the key when a session with all the big guns Phil Johnston. Was There John? Macarthur was there are more was there and it got a little testy and A lot of people were so discouraged and stuff like that. And I remember Doug Wilson afterwards saying how he felt the opposite like it was like one of the first. Qna's that actually answered something like this is what we we absolutely need this. And what's so interesting about a lot of what we saw? Circle the wagons Tuesday which I like that phrase We KEPT GETTING CALLS FOR CONVERSATION. We need to have these conversations. We need to have the right tone of course but the need to have these conversations. We've lost the ability to have these conversations. I think Muller said and the answer is no we have not. We just haven't had willing partners and so so so no. This conversation has to happen. It will happen and it. Sparks might fly. And that's fine because we can't avoid it anymore Yeah it's funny touting like this need for unity and they reference the past on how we used to be able to talk about our differences and a civil manner and we used to be able to drink tea while we would discuss these things and we'd go home to our homes and have all this unity but the difference is an like some of the things that there were sightings were things that weren't sin that were being brought into the church right critical race theory is sinful. It is lobbying the Gospel it's distorting Jesus Christ Jesus Christ in the work. He's done it. That's why there can't be this unity. That's why it's not peace. That's why there is this conflict. You can't find unity when their sin? You can find unity when there's differences in styles. If you WANNA sing psalms if you WanNa Oregon you couldn't find unity in all this stuff. But when their sin prison has to be dealt with or it's going to kill yeah no question. Excuse me no question about it and you know the reactions that are happening you know. They're not all terrible like like you know sometimes people some people will say you know we need to. We will call for unity and we need to have these conversations. I'm I'm all for that. I'm all for that but But you're right though that that when when there's when there's error and sin and an evil ideology brought in we cannot say that that's fine. We cannot have peace with that. We cannot agree to disagree with some of that. And so that means there's going to be conflict now. We want to have conflict. Personally I think. A lot of this was avoidable We want to have conflict in a very measured kind of way like like like an idiot. Like me shouldn't have to get on Youtube to try to provoke you into responding. You should just respond. But if you're not going to it's going to be worse when it actually happened so so we. We saw shepherds conference like El Molar. Didn't just blow up because he's been feeling the pressure for five minutes rain up because he's because he's hasn't dealt with this for years for years and then someone challenges in publicly he can't escape like normal.

Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless bring a hi-fi pedigree to $300 earbuds
"Finish up with wireless ear, bud trends because and we talked about a couple of these on the show, but audio Technica has a couple Sennheiser has a couple of teams like like, true. They're calling them true wireless because they don't have a wire connecting the two ear buds. The air pods style for you. Apple fans is settling in. Yeah, it's in the thing about Google, especially with. They're not exactly wireless ear buds. You know, I think audio is an afterthought. A lot of people who are into quality audio, not been impressed with the air pods. Sennheiser generally, you know, they're, they're, they're a headphone and microphone company and the general you good work. I can't wait to hear these very, very curious. You know, these are, you know, true. You know, discreet, not connected ear buds, you know they're going to be somewhere in the three hundred dollar range. They're promising, you know, four hours of listening, twelve hours with the case when you're seeing right now, if you're watching the video that's audio Technica and audit tactic goes was doing much interesting announcements. But again, the wireless ear buds on as a respected audio company. These look a little big and finding them on on Amazon's gonna be a nightmare because it's the h. desks. He k. are seventeen w, you know. But these are these are two Sennheiser and audio Technica to respected audio companies. And I think they waited for, you know, the a lot of the problem with the early wireless ear buds was actually getting the left and right ear bud to sink and play audio at the same time, turned out to be a much bigger problem. Anybody thought it would be. So I think they've, they've waited for the chip sets to solidify become relatively inexpensive. I think there may be waiting for bluetooth, five point. Oh, and I'm very, very cute. To hear both of these, you know, like the you're talking about, like, you know, Aptex support is built in. He's he standard SBC bluetooth five point which may promise the upgrade that next generation. But next generation Aptex HD. I mean, it was crazy is Sony's got a new high end wireless headphone and audio Technica also announced one. I was kinda surprised by this very curious to hear the again a name that just rolls off the tongue. The s or fifty BT and the thirty BT and they're claiming seventy hours of battery life. Not for not for airbud though. Right? These are not bright your of her. Yeah, these are headphones. So I think as more and more manufacturers start stripping, the headphone jacks out of phones were were starting to see a little bit of acceleration in the high end audio market.
