"And gents. Thanks for coming into the league. Podcast episode one fifty two of the show all right so before we begin into today's talk and today's technology podcast and all of the above are here. And and just to catch of what i've been doing and before we begin. I wanted to give you a few words of our sponsor. Starting off with my awesome phone cases. I've received were scorch at scrooge. Sc c. h. Scorch it is amazing. I love this case. I actually gave one of my one of my other cases to a friend of mine over the weekend while i was helping his built. I think And he said he loves it he loves the kick the stand on it. It is absolutely a an amazing phone case. I really really liked it. And i actually tests out the case. It is very durable even on his samsung galaxy. S twenty ultra which he says he loves. It loves it so much that he feels really really protected and no complaints right there too and also i've been using this case for more than two weeks and even after using it and helping promote Myself and the company. That's pretty much a part down partnering with scratch. I've enjoyed his case something about this case. It feels really really good in feels very pretty much protected and the best part about is not just a clear transparent case it also has other designs and logos that you can cheat Achy pick for yourself and they have tons. And if you have an iphone a samsung phone or an algae whatever may be it is absolutely wonderful to have a a nice Good case i will Doubt will protect your phone. Something that is not too bulky. Unlike the otter boxes even though it does protect your phone even i like the arbox itself. One of the things i have to say with. The box is used. Stick into your pocket even though it does protects you. It doesn't give you that. Fancy click stand on like described. Says it really amazing job. And it doesn't feel like it's just bojan out of your pocket when you ever sick into your the pockets of your jeans or or right inside your purse which i absolutely act excellence. And that's why like about two because this phone doesn't put all that weight into you. Which i think is excellent. I wish most phone cases where like that but scrooge however does an excellent job i have wrote a review about scratch. I think scoops is one of the best spots smartphone. Case assessories there. If you're looking.
"samsung" Discussed on POW! Samsung Developer Program
"The podcast. With me today olga gabbai. Welcome to the podcast olga. Now thank you. I absolutely love your work. Your designs always evoke such motion. You know when. I see your themes. I often think of them as like movie posters or even like video covers. They all seem to tell a story that being said though when i look at your full library of work it's it's quite a variety of styles who is oga gotta by. I'll basically. I'm a graphic designer. I started to do this. Homage off ninety s by. Now it's like almost twenty six years of experience so throughout all these years. What i collected. I mean like Experiences i just brought up now in my themes and i still keep experimenting so actually sometimes people they don't believe my works out by the same designer because there is a variety of styles. Actually i'm not really happy with that. Because i more jealous to people who can produce all their works just style something when you can say desire has some unique face. Some unique style and i don't have it. I want to try and that and that you know like a little bit of yeah when i think of oga gabby i. I definitely do think of those that certain style that i had mentioned where it really does capture emotion. But as i'm scanning through your collection. I see this wide variety in. I think i can relate to that a lot because even in my watch face designing that i was doing. I remember before. I worked at samsung ahead. Someone at samsung. Give me a little advice and say you know you should pick a style. You should pick a direction and then build on that brand. And i couldn't do it. I was catching. Thanks very artistic. Or i do something. That very mechanical. In i guess. That's just that's how i work. But that's what. I can relate to that for sure an interesting that you said that you started designing back in the ninety s m. It's about the time that i did too. We got the joy of working when adobe was doing all those early releases of photoshop illustrator. We got to be a part of that. So is that true or you working in photoshop. Back in the in the early days. Oh yes absolutely. So i believe my first photoshop That was a version of two point. Five i think okay and yes. That's so it's was a lot of fun back then because you know like when they introduced the solaire system go yes i was like. Wow now you can put things on different layers the exciting. I remember that. I remember even like multiple undo when i first started. I think it was photoshop. You know one point. Two weeks have multiple undo. It was one undo and that was it. there was no history. You couldn't go back. There was everything was on one layer. But you know what that made us pay attention that much more closely to the work that we were doing. Did you study design in school. Is this you know a career path that you started off early on. I will start in just in the college but back then in the college. We didn't study computer so we were doing everything. They're old fashioned ways like with paper paints pencils glues. That is not yes. And what's great about that and you can tell me if you have the same sort of theory on that. I often tell when. I'm teaching classes in schools. You need to grab of pencil and paper to do your initial company that if you dive right into a computer program. You're you're limiting your freedom to design. So i always say those first designs. You should really grab pencil and paper. Do you have the same approach to design. Yes i agree with that I used to do it for many years. But you not in all my themes now. I never even a single time. Because i was older like under the pressure of to make collection and then i just love this habit so nowadays i just go straight. But of course i address. It's not like. I create the image. That wallpaper as it's supposed to be thirst. I'm just composing everything them low resolution images and just doing some marks with an electronic pen so with my tablet. also it's still drafting but electrically. Gotcha i see i see. Yeah and. I'm not surprised when i see your work. I do see a lot of a collage. So it looks like you're compiling different imagery and bringing it together to make a new scene so i could definitely see where you do rounds of of comping and revisions to to finally get to that final design. Exactly let me back up just a little bit in. tell me. Where are you originally from Sergeant from russia from moscow. I moved to canada one years ago in the greater toronto area as life is more quiet. Here is sure it's a little a little cold where you are at least this time of year up in canada. You name is gay by do you. Have a company name. Is there a brand name behind olga. I guess my company masirah studio but because it's a small studio and i'm the only designer fair to other people they do some routine things Not related to the designing So i often go under my own name. I know it's it's sometimes creates a little mess but my name in the theme store is more resolved. Redistribution so i could not with the company name the problem now. I could change it once you start building your collection. It can be a little difficult to halfway through two one to change carson in. Switch the brandon because you lose the history in the download recording of it. The i understand your situation on that. Tell me about how you first learned about samsung in designing themes. Oh actually that's A little bit funny story. Because i was just exploring things on my phone some new features some settings. You know what i can do. And i came across a theme store and the breakfast thing realized there that it's not all these themes then not created by some tricks itself. I mean by the local people so there are all different designers from all over the world. And when i found the toutes at home i can do the same. I i need to give it a try so then. I just googled. Kahad agreed seems for some some galaxy phones and brought me to the page where everyone can register for the program. sure so. how many years ago was that cerise. Something years ago. I it took me about two months to create my portfolio than their view. You know it's a long process. Yes review team gets a lot of applications super excited that you were selected in that you've become one of the top designers for samson is theme designing. Is this your fulltime job.

Samsung Has a New Line Of Affordable Smartphones
"Listeners. Mike snyder here. And i'm brett molina. Welcome back to talking tech. Follow me on twitter. You might have seen me rail about companies that are putting out these thousand dollars smartphones and they just seem excessive and ridiculous but that doesn't mean that there are another lower costs phones out there. Might you have some details on some new economically price smartphones. This week right. That is true. Samsung recently announced its galaxy a line of smartphones which have much more palatable price points than the top line galaxy s twenty one phones that hit the market back january now. There's this twenty-one phones range in price from eight hundred to twelve hundred dollars but these galaxy phones started one hundred ninety nine and go up to about five hundred dollars now. What's the difference. Well obviously there's difference and mainly these cameras screens just aren't speedy as those higher end phones and they won't have as much memory but they all do have expanded memory slots so if you're just if you're getting a phone for picture taker you know you can just keep adding it can add up to a terabyte you know of card you gotta by the card and you slip included in the models. Are the galaxy. Eight thirty to five g. Which started to seventy nine and it's the lowest price five g phone. Samsung has available. It has a six and a half inch display. And that's the same size display fifty to five g. which is four nine but that phone has a full. Hd plus super amyloid. One twenty megahertz display. That's the first a series model. Have that speedier refresh rate. Which as

LG to Stop Making Smartphones After Years of Losses
"The South Korean firm had been looking for a buyer for its phone business. Algae is the third biggest in the U. S, with 10% of all smartphone sales marketplaces, Erica Barris reports. Less than 10. Years ago, L G was one of the top three smart phones out there. But the company has suffered from software and hardware issues such as a foldable phone that fell apart. Algae has had nearly six years of losses. That total around $4.5 billion as losses piled up. LG attempted to sell part of the business, but that fell through. In a statement, The company said its decision to leave the quote incredibly competitive mobile phone sector will allow LG to focus on other areas such as Elektronik vehicle components. Smart home devices and artificial intelligence. What does this mean less competition When it comes to smartphones, it'll further open up the market for Samsung and Apple. Other device makers like Nokia and BlackBerry have also given up making smart phones over the years. America. Barris for Marketplace.
2021 Pixel Smartphones May Come With Google's In-House Chips
"Looks like a google's going to do what pull an apple and design their own chips for the new pixel now. That would be an interesting thing. Pixel and good chromebooks. They're they're supposedly co-developing this with samsung samsung makes some very nice processors and Maybe this false pixel phones will be powered by google chip. That would see that. I would be interested and i'd be excited by
New Verizon promotion offers discounts when swapping a broken phone for a 5G one
"Up to now? Victoria? Well, they have a new deal that suspiciously launches today, but they they are insisting that this is not related to April. Fool's, So it does sound a little too good to be true, especially if you have a useless broken phone that doesn't work anymore. Because Verizon's insisting that starting today customers can trade in an old cracked or water, damaged phone and get up to $1000 off a new five g phone like either the iPhone 12 or the Samsung Galaxy s 21. Now the promo does not extend to phones that have battery damaged because their safety concerns there with that. But other than that, if you have a phone that's just sitting around an old and broken there clearly telling you that if you especially if you are switching providers, and you go to Verizon from a different provider that they're going to give you a lot of money and credit for those broken phones so you can find out the value of your phone on Verizon's Web site. Or in any of the retail stores. But if you do plan to visit in person they you have to make an appointment because of covert, so eligibility requires upgrading or adding a new line or reporting a number, you know, bringing a number from a different different provider. So a few new they have a new lines and a new phone for a number of pardons or current customers. Porting the line from a different network. You got a $300 Verizon gift card for an iPhone trade in or a $200 gift card for an android phone. So if you're upgrading your phone, and you're already a customer, Verizon, you can still bring them a broken phone to trade in. They'll give you up to $440 in savings, and there's no limit to what I do for a current Is it for current customers are new customers. It's for both. You get more money if you're a new customer, but you will get some savings. If you are a current Verizon customer, and you have a broken phone or an old phone that doesn't work. So if you are, there's no limit to how many phones per account you can trade in, which is also kind of big and that's that's a big part of this deal, and it's limited

DDR5 Finally Arrives
"Standard was settled on years ago and some smaller manufacturers have released early products here and there but everyone was waiting for this to make official. Samsung has announced five hundred and twelve gigabyte. Ddr five memory chips still in the verification stage that deliver over twice the performance of ddr four at up to seven thousand two hundred mbps for advanced workloads. We are now officially in the ddr. Five era quoting hardware as we inch closer to intel's alder lake and md's zen architectures late this year and or early next year. Barring any delays memory makers started announcing advances in ddr five memory which will deliver a big increase in bandwidth. We've even seen some ddr. Five module launches samsung however has managed to separate itself from the pack on announcing. What it says is the industry's first. Five hundred twelve gigabyte memory module based on high k metal gate or hk mg process technology according to samsung. It's five twelve gigabyte. Ddr five memory module delivers more than twice the performance of ddr. Four add up to seven thousand two hundred megabits per second this. The company says will be beneficial for the most extreme compute hungry and high bandwidth workloads the five twelve gb capacity comes by way of stacking eight layers of sixteen gigabit d-ram chips. There's no mention of costs though. Samsung says it is currently sampling. it's five twelve. Gb modules to customers for testing and verification and
OnePlus 9 boasts a Hasselblad-tuned camera. Heres what its like to use
"What did oneplus announced. Today we've got to new flagships. We've got the top and oneplus nine pro and the one plus nine. And how much are these phones. The nine starts at seven hundred twenty nine dollars the nine pro little bit more expensive at nine six nine okay. So let's let's get to the cameras because they spent a lot of time talking about the camera. The marquee feature are these hasselblad tuned cameras now for folks who aren't necessarily in photography. What is the big deal with the hassle. Blood brand so hasselblad is a pro camera. Mak- a they make a really really high equipment medium format cameras but also old exclusively to really high end commercial rosal people who take that photography extremely seriously and of course have the bank pilots to spend six thousand dollars plus on cameras okay. So are these cameras. That worth the hype. Like i know i've seen the brand has supplied thrown onto other mobile devices in the past usually hasn't resulted in much but this time around. How are the cameras. Are they really worth the hype in this. This super expensive brand that the Tout so in a word. No that knox and that is a shame for one plus because it's a company that has been known for doing great phones but it's cameras have never had a lot of praise and that is pretty much the same this time around There is no question that they can take some really nice photos. And i would say that they are definitely a good step ahead of what oneplus has done before. The problem is is that his rivals particularly apple with the iphone. Twelve pro and samsung's galaxy s twenty one ultra have taken even big at steps forward since they launched that phones and oneplus again is kind of playing. Catch up here. Give you some specs on what what the actual camera configuration looks like what some of the features are show so the standard oneplus nine There are two main cameras. A standard seem to think a forty eight megapixel sensor and there's an ultra wide cameras well On the pro. That standard lens actually has a physically logica image sensor one of the largest actually but you can get in a phone camera which is promising in some ways but it doesn't necessarily necessarily deliver there is also the addition of a three times optical zoom
Double-folding Samsung Galaxy Z is coming this year

Fold phones this year and is currently developing a double full device that could be announced with the end of twenty twenty one. Samsung reportedly said a goal of exceeding ten million foldable. Phone shipments in the year a similar level to its galaxy note line
We don't have enough computer chips
"The pandemic cause lots of shortages from personal protective equipment to laptops bicycles but one supply shortage. Could slow down the economy for months. Even after covid is gone. That's the global shortage of chips. Not lay's chips but semi conductor chips the types of silicon power everything from our computers to our cars recode rebecca. Hi awhile has been covering the shortage. Hair becca hey so. This feels like the sort of niche problem. But semiconductors are in everything so tell me what exactly a semi conductor is. Semiconductors or ships are basically the building block of all the devices that we're using today. You know the computers in your refrigerator or the computers in your car phones and many computer. All of that is being made with these tiny little chips. That are powering these technologies and the really important. because we don't just need them for entertainment. We need them to work and learn and especially during the pandemic when we're doing all of these things from home and you not only have your devices at school or your office. Many people also have a full second Electronics setup at their house and what kind of problems is a chip shortage. Going to cause like talk me through. How does this play out in in the world that we experience in the world. We care about in everyday life so broadly. The increase in demand for electronics in general means that we don't have enough chips actually make those electrons so if you weren't getting a laptop on time or a phone on time that you really needed that's how it would affect you. But in the united states there's this particular challenge that's popped up with the automakers. Obviously automakers are really important and the shortage in chips is actually delaying production of cars and some models from gm or actually not going to be running with an advanced fuel technology system right now because the carmakers can't get the chip that they need so we're seeing idle workers in the united states. Some workers being laid off because of this chip shortage. But you know it's not just cars. Samsung is talking about delays with their phones their medical device makers who have asked for help because they also are worried about the chip shortage. So this is really a very very big issue for all sorts of things that we do told about why this is happening. And how did covid cause or accelerate the shortage in the first place so the primary cause for the shortage is the increase in demand in an industry. That isn't that flexible. In terms of how much it can make talking to semiconductor. They say the lead time can be you know over twenty twenty five weeks to make one of these chips so it's not an an industry that can just flip. The switch in terms of of making more another challenge is that we're dealing with incredibly complicated supply chains and there are just a few companies that have the infrastructure and very very expensive infrastructure to make these chips but they need to get materials from other companies. There's also a he does some trump tara trade policies that are making the market. Even little bit more constricted. The us has not really developed a very strong backup system of its own supply. Chain has just twelve percent of global manufacturing in the sector and you used to have nearly forty percent back in the nineteen nineties so we really haven't focused on our own. Us domestic manufacturing of these chips. Which sort of is making a lot of people nervous right now. Especially you know the car makers but you know all sorts of Device makers in the united states right now and. What can we do about that. We can't go back from twelve percent of forty percent overnight. What are people who think about the future of the auto industry governors people who have jobs and the line people who have angry customers calling. What are they doing about this. The biden administration has ordered a giant review of the semiconductor supply chain part of a broader effort. That he's focused on and focus on his campaign as well to sign a boost the resilience of us supply chains. And for you know. We're in the midst of this now. But there's going to be one hundred day review of the semiconductor supply chain. And that's doing a lot of research with all the different chipmakers trying to figure out like where you get these components. What happened in this disaster scenario and really scoping out what this actually looks like. There is legislation that some people say really needs to be funded. That would actually incentivize building. High tech manufacturing in the united states for chips hasn't been funded yet. But that's something that some chipmakers really really wanna see but you know taking the step of the us government actively incentivizing companies to go away from building these trips abroad where it is cheaper. And they've done so for economic reasons and having them chips in the united states. That's a pretty big statement and that's going to be a lot of money and it doesn't always work out. well you could end up with empty factories factories. That aren't being used three years or five years down the line and for customers. What can we do beyond expect our products to take longer to get to us. You know in the gm case you might get that product but you might not get it with a feature that you really wanted mentioning the advanced fuel technology system which means that if you were trying to buy one of those gm trucks you might be paying a little bit more for gas in. That just might be the compromise. But you know it's a reminder to really pay attention to supply chain
Global Shortage in Semiconductors Increases
"Global shortage in computer chips reaches crisis point. And i really wish that they would just break more into what's actually going on behind the scenes. I get it maybe to some extent. We might not actually know what's going on. But let's hop on into the articles. He what's up. Consumers are facing price rises and shortages of products from. Tv's mobile phones to cars and game consoles as a global shortage in. Semiconductors grows shortage in chips. The brain with an electronic device in the world has been steadily worsening since last year now. Initially the problem was only temporarily in supplies. Factories shut down when the pandemic i hit however although production is back to normal a new surge in demand driven by changing habits fueled by the pandemic means that now is reaching a crisis point car manufacturers investing in tech heavy electric vehicles. Which is okay. I'm just going to make a point to some extent stupid. Gopher hybrid the boom in sales of tv's in home computers launch new game consoles five g. Mobile phones have all driven demand. So we know that demand has been going on an increase to like crazy stupid level that we haven't seen before even a mighty apple a two trillion dollar company in the world's biggest buyer of semiconductors spending fifty eight billion annually was forced to delay the launch of much hyped iphone twelve by two months last year due to the shortage in one of the reasons. Chips are everything says neal camping media in tech analyst at mehrabad. There's a perfect storm of supply and demand factors going on here but basically there is a new level of demand that can't be kept up with everyone is in crisis and it's getting worse for recently canceled shift at two car. Plants and said profits could be hit by up to two point. Five billion year due to chip shortages while nissan is idling output at plants in mexico. Us general motors said they could face a two billion dollar profit hit as well. Meanwhile sony last month along with other console makers has struggled with stock shortages over the last year that it might not hit sales targets for new playstation five this year because of the semiconductor supply issue microsoft's xbox said if forecasts supply issues continuing at least until the second half of the year and then they go on to talk about samsung itself selling fifty six billion dollars of semi conductors to other an consuming thirty. Six billion dollars of them itself finds. It may have to delay the launch of one of its own products as well. They're co chief executive. Who had its mobile business. Unit highlighted a significant issue. Saying there is a serious imbalance in the pecking order of who has Giving the limited supplies of chips so what exactly is going on. While chip shortage looks set to persist for some time yet. It up the two years to get complex semiconductor production factories up and running and manufacturers are in process of significantly raising prices for the second time in less than a year is no sign of supply catching upper demand decreasing while prices are rising across the chain so economically. What does this mean means. Less supply obviously unable to meet demand and prices. Go up because of it. Because that's kind of the only counterbalance that you have to be able to balance everything taken an economics course at the basic level. How things work. So what exactly is going on. It could be that. There aren't enough factories able to produce enough of a supply of semiconductors. One thing i'm wondering though is are there enough materials to be able to construct it. I mean semiconductors aren't really the easiest to make their actually quite complex quite exact in its production of it not to mention you also need to have trained individuals who know how to do it. Do it well Which is a limited supply of as
Getting chippy: ‘I’m a Mac’ guy is now just a guy who likes PCs better in ad campaign from Intel
"If you haven't seen them until put out a series of commercials with justin. I'm a mac guy. And he's he's as i'm a. I'm just adjusting. Just i'm a human being. He goes and he goes into the living room and he talks to a person on it looks and he's like. Oh wow. this has two screens. Oh well this guy's playing video games this stuff you could never do unimak the end There's one that the key word on the front computer with the second screen. They they screwed up the after effects audit and the second screen is hovering over his hands in like a split second anyway. So these are the commercials. I think these ads are mostly just integrate itself dunked on select just objectively. The ads didn't work the way they wanted to. Yeah let me make the case for the ads. Intel is about to enter a new ceo. Yep they're about to enter this extremely weird middle period where either going to figure it out or not. Yep inside of that middle period every time apple puts out an m one or m series computer. Yup the story about until being dead is everywhere yep into also has hundreds of oem customers with their chips inside their computers. These are ads about real problems with max so like it is true that you cannot touch the screen unimak yes. Many people have noticed this. It is true that you can't follow it over and a tablet is true that you can't use the silence on it. It is true that apple really wants you to have we. Did we talked about fitness. Plus with ashley like apple wants you have an ipad iphone and mac like yep that is true that there are no games on a mac like none of intel's points for wrong. It is true that the design of a mac has been static for years In even with the new chips they still look the same yup and maybe that will change now but on itself is true so the things that intel is saying are just true. Criticisms of the mac get hundred percent. That's it that's all i got. I obviously did not work out. Yeah the thing like every time apple releases a new Embraced mac it's going to be intel's dead. Stories is really every single time. I talked to a company about it. He left hopper. Like you chromebooks. Whatever it's like yeah but M one like here's your battery. Life is like actually half of what the competition is. And it's gonna be a long time before there's an answer and like to do with itself in that that period yet again new. Ceo he just started. I think in a couple of weeks. He's going to do his first. Big thing is the first big thing that the screw it. We're we're giving up on trying to have this stuff ourselves we're just gonna have to use mc make our stuff. Yeah we'll see. That was a big striking for those wishing. He's got to do something that's really. They're about to enter this weird fallow period and the whole point of the new to change the strategy and he just started. So what's the first thing to do is like just remind everybody that from a design and capability perspective. That mac is like actually quite static. Yeah okay well. Maybe like microsoft tries this every couple of years to like maybe had very predictable results. But like i get it i understand i. Just don't i think maybe they should have seen the predictable result on the other hand hiring justin long that made everybody talk about until that's sure got it themselves a whole if you believe all is good press which do not as a method.

No new Galaxy Note this year, confirms Samsung CEO
"Samsung says it is considering not launching a new slate of its galaxy. Note phones this year. Now they say that this is in aid of streamlining its product lineup. But isn't that the truth or is the truth really something else. We've been talking about lately. That growing global shortage in semiconductors quoting bloomberg samsung electronics warned it's grappling with the fallout from a serious imbalance in semiconductors globally becoming the largest tech giant to voice concerns about chip shortages spreading beyond the automaking industry. Samsung one of the world's largest makers of ships and consumer electronics expects the crunch to pose a problem to its business next quarter co chief executive officer code dong jin said during an annual shareholders meeting in seoul. The company is also considering skipping the introduction of a new galaxy note one of its bestselling models this year. Though said that was geared toward streamlining. Its lineup quote. There's a serious imbalance supply and demand of chips in the it sector globally said co who oversees the company's it and mobile divisions despite the difficult environment. Our business leaders are meeting partners overseas to solve these problems. It's hard to say. The shortage issue has been solved. One hundred percent and quote if samsung is publicly talking about future products. You know that the silicon is serious said. Avi green guard analysts and founder of consultantcy texts. Potential co said samsung may decide not to introduce its galaxy. Note during two thousand twenty one second half breaking eight years long streak of annual watches for the marquis line. The note series contributed roughly five percent of samsung smartphone. Shipments over the past two years. Idc estimates but accounts for a more significant chunk of revenue. Because it's one of the priciest in the lineup. Quote note series is positioned as a high end model in our business. He said it could be a burden to unveil to flagship models in a year so it might be difficult to release note models in the second half of the year. The timing of note model launch can be changed but we seek to release a note model next year
European Union Pushes for 'Digital Sovereignty'
"Like many other governments. The european union passed a massive coronavirus recovery package setting aside trillions of dollars to get the economy back up and running on the other side of the pandemic but also included in what is extensively a covert relief. Plan is a more than one hundred and fifty billion dollar pledge to bolster the technological independence one of the plans. Big goals is for europe to make up about twenty percent of global chip sales by twenty thirty. Which would be double their current market. Share it's all part of the blocks broader ambition of catching up to countries like the us and china when it comes to technology for more on this we turn to our reporters do. Hey stu thanks for being here. Thanks for having me okay. So why is the eu making this pledge. Now what's been going on in the tech sector that europe feels. It needs to address one of the things that the pandemic really showed was how dependent european technology is and other parts of the world especially for things like computer chips. So there's a global chip shortage right now and one of the reasons that there's been an unexpected surge for things that require computer chips so we're talking about laptops and tablets is part phones for for people who are doing remote work and schooling. But another thing that you might not think about requiring a lot chips cars cars now required dozens of chips for things like controlling the engine transmission. Backup cameras infotainment systems stuff like that and europe has a huge car industry. Yet you're thinking we're thinking companies like mercedes and bmw. Volkswagen and some of these companies has had to have to cut production and even furlough workers idol factories because the bill the cars. Because there aren't enough chipped going round in this world so the idea behind this is to have the european semiconductor companies have greater presence in the world so that these car companies don't have to go to places like the united states and asia by chips rate and i think when we think of the major global players in tack we think of the us we think of trying to and others we don't necessarily think of the e us tech scene. So what does the industry look like. They're now and how likely is push to work. As far as semiconductors are concerned the us and asia really dominate the sector. So you think of big companies like intel and does samsung. Tsmc there either in the us or asia. So you're trying to play catch up right now so you're does have a couple of big semiconductor companies like annex p. and am allen. The netherlands infineon in germany. But they are sort of in niches of the semiconductor industry. They focus on things like making the machines that make chips for instance or for specialized chips cars or industrial uses. They don't have the big chips that go into data centers or laptops or smartphones. Like the us or asia dies. So that's what they're trying to do. They're trying to really spur. This hub homegrown industry. But there's not a lot to start with and the learning curve for developing these really tough technology that requires really expensive manufacturing facilities. It's really steep and it's a nine years. That's a short amount of time to try to become a bigger player in the global chip industry right nine years till bat. Twenty thirty goal. They set for themselves. So why do they see this. As such a big priority. One of the stakes for the eu. One of the things That they realize was that volkswagen for instance they had to furlough workers idol factories because they couldn't get enough chips and they had to get those chips from other parts of the world. So this is a really really big deal for their economy. If some of their biggest industries can't operate because they're reliant in other regions. That's a huge problem for them. And that's that's been a story of their tech sector. In general for the past several years steel is the eu the only government taking steps like this or are we seeing similar action from others. The eu is not alone. And that's going to make its attempt to catch up and the chip industry even tougher one country. That's poured a lot of resources into advancing. Its domestic chip industry china. They set up. These huge government finds sometimes worth tens of billions of dollars in an attempt to catch up with places like the us and taiwan. Now the us in response they recently. The congress recently passed its own legislation to sponsor projects to spur the us chip industry. And each of these projects might be worth billions of dollars. They might get billions of dollars in tax taxpayer aid or financial incentives to build facilities in america to try to stay ahead of places like china. So that's going to be a really tough thing for europe to do is first of all the competing against two very well funded region and china and the us plus they're starting from from a smaller base and that's a couple of countries working to build up sort of technological independence. What does it mean that. So many governments are focused on that. What kind of impact could that have right now. We're talking about the potential decoupling of the tech sector. So there's been tariffs and expert controls between the us and china basically for something like chip industry is really important for a couple of reasons. One is military. The most advanced fighter jets and tanks and drones require really sophisticated chips. Artificial intelligence requires skated chip. So the wars of the future going to be determined could be determined by semiconductors on top of that there is a economic independence. If you're an apple samsung you need the most advanced chips to build your best laptops and smartphones. So we're talking hundreds of billions of dollars at stake here. If countries can't trade technology with with each other we're gonna see slower development of things like electronics. So we're talking billions of dollars at stake and possibly slower development if people have countries aren't willing to share technology with each other.

"As can be given this Jeff Jeff's. Best, definitely very well said. So if people want to contact you or the abstract team, what is the best way for them to do that? So I'd recommend the same your earlier on dot com slash APPs Dak there's a be a partner in there's contact information there as well. Me Specifically Millington is. there's accent over my e in. You'll notice on my link it is a registered trademark. So it's while in a registered Trademark Raila and you might find that odd this is my mind. Again, I actually have my name trademark. And I went from when I was a kid. It took me a while to really appreciate my name to point to now where I truly appreciate my name and I don't want anybody else to kind of misuse it. So unlinked in Swahili in Detroit marks in. Well, that's wonderful it. Your name is very memorable. Thank you. The year and a half ago when as at that event New York. Got To say I probably could not remember many the other names but. Could not forget your name. Thank you. Excellent character wonderful personality. It's been an absolute joy to have you on the podcast. So thank you very much. A I appreciate the platform, I appreciate the opportunity but not only that I am one of my things in exit a few times on this on this. PODCAST is that I advocate for developers because I understand that their voice is not necessarily hurt as much as it should be I've always believed that developers should be a part of rnd for any corporation or any entity or any organization. So I will continue to champion you because you were creating a platform for developers in this is we need this. Continue to do this and please do not stop doing this and whatever I can do to Kinda help amplify your voice and this platform. Let me know and I'll do my best to do that. Truthfully the main reason that I ended up coming to Samsung, for those that don't know my past. I was a graphic designer for well over twenty years never had a corporate job always worked for myself and when I started. Designing APPS and selling them on the APP store. For Samsung just as a side Gig. To See how? Much Sampson would reach out to me is just this. One individual this this very small developer you know selling some apps seeing how available they were with me making direct phone calls, Sampson started inviting me out to meetings to help improve their software and all one I can't believe. This is Samsung reaching out to me I'm just one individual. And I'm like you know what I think. It can go work for this company. So I by my business I've been working now it's getting close to two years. Now I've carried that momentum as far as making myself available to developers. I am always you shocking people on like Youtube? When post a comment about one of my videos asking a question sometimes within minutes I'm giving them you know a public reply they're just like, oh my gosh, I can't believe Samsung reply debate. That just shows you how a lot of our team you know not just our team, your team. It's kind of like the thing with Samsung. We definitely are supporting our developers and want them to know that hey, we can talk to you. We want to work together and make our solutions even better no one hundred percent and I wanna say this An, it'll help all the developers in the future partners who wanNA partner with APPs Samson in general one thing you brought up his kind of making yourself accessible. Having had to reach out to a lot of these these partners it's difficult to find the right email address or contact information to get to the right person right on a lot of them is just like support email address available but as you grow your business whether from a development standpoint where an enterprise or a startup standpoint be mindful of the fact that you want yourself to be easily accessible right because there's partnerships that you may lose because they don't know how to get in contact with you. So be mindful of that and I Always said if tomorrow I started my own either desktop shop or Now. In startup on on the first page, there's going to be either at the a at the bottom of prominent location contact information to reach me if you want to reach me, here's how you reach me because that is important. There's a lot of people were looking to do business which look in a partner which you need to make that seamless as possible I. Love that. So with that said, would you like to share your email my birth? Yes. Okay. S that Nunez and U. N. Z. at sea that Samsung Dot Com and that is my email address I I answer emails so There might be a delay, but I will definitely respond. Well, Hey, again while I absolutely appreciate you taking the time to join me on the podcast. Thank you. I will go on.

So tell me what's the best way for companies to learn more about aspects that they can get started? The easiest way in the most resourceful that has the most resource available to use Samsung Dot com slash abstract made it has everything from. The list of of companies or partners that we already have. It actually gives you insights enrolled map into the partners that are in the pipeline. It has a Q. and A. It has additional resources in right write ups to help Kinda. Get you. Up to speed with APPs back as quickly as possible. So that would be the first place to go to to learn more about APPS. Say the your elegant one more time. It is a Samsung Dot com slash APPs DAK excellent, and we will link to that in the show notes. I'm super excited about the new launch of abstract in in all of the solutions that are out there looking forward to. New APPS being released the stock a little bit about you. What was Your Journey Samsung? Oddly enough. I. There was a point in my life I wanted to give up technology. As a whole I was a that net developer and I literally, I was in a position where I'm like, this cannot be. Trapped behind my desk of Writing Code, which I'm a fan of writing code the the creative aspect of it and be able to Kinda create these things just lines of code. But I had opportunity to travel the world. And then be more of a from a presenter side of things right so I still developed heavily but there was these gaps where I can kind of take technology today either developed or is a part of an present him. To people in these kind of roadshows from from a technical perspective. So I had a stint at blackberry doing that. And then a few years ago I think roughly six years ago Samsung. was focusing on enterprise mobility and that was that was in there was an opportunity there So I got tapped to come over to Samsung, and then that's where kind of my Samsung Journey started and he started from. Solution Innovation Perspective Enterprise Mobility this mash up and then it transitioned into I've always advocated for developers Developers in especially in larger corporations, they might not necessarily have the voice that they need especially in the enterprise space I live in the enterprise space in wide sway. Important to me because I think enterprise gives you an opportunity to solve real world problems right Consumer side is funding I mean there's some interesting aspects there. You can't truly appreciate a second onto you. Are you see from the Lens of a first responder? So money in healthcare industry writer and if we can help build applications To help kind of make their jobs easier, it'll ultimately make the world a better place right because they're the ones that are out saving the world. So I've advocated for developers in that, advocating for developers gave me an opportunity to start. Doing. B. Two B. Developer focused engagements, kind of creating A. Opening up tools and resources to support them in kind of taking develop relations on the road and then kind of having. Enterprise Focus. A tech for good engagements in events specifically. For, those particular developers from perspective in Samsung who's been really good at providing the resources in helping me kind of bring distinct We're still it's still work in progress but I'm happy with the progress we've made and even though there's there's a long way to go I think we're we're definitely moving in the right direction very well sad I actually I met you. I think about a year and a half ago. So I'm in the West Coast in you are I'm in New, York, city, New, York City, exactly our team came out to New York to. Teach a class at one of the local universities. But then also we did a meet up group in the evening where we had a bunch of developers come out you're part of the team that was on a panel. At that event that was a lot of fun You know my take away from that event was. Meeting the community that was there a definitely a very vibrant. Crowd the the came to that meet up. I actually had a really nice conversation with a young lady who was a developer building some apps very much around the issues that she was medically having and he had some some medical issues going on in here she was creating an APP not you know for the wider community it was specifically for her. So that she can try and make her life better just was just so exciting when you actually can get face to face. So I'm I'm really looking forward to you know once we all get through this pandemic and we can get back out to doing these live events because that's where the people are. I mean that's really what you start to touch on the. Outside of all of this work that you deal, which is amazing. What do you like to do for fun? So I think you did a really good. I'll use your last sentence as a segue. But. Find me is is. Traveling right it's it's elegant inspired. and. I'm all about democratizing innovation rating ton of finding having come from everybody and then having traveled the world a small part of the world is I mean there's a Lotta world out there still less sure. Would you brought up a good point about touching people? Me just being fascinated with human creativity. I, love traveling up until this year. Backpack every year at pick a part of the world to go really load up my backpack in Go touch the people. Go out into connects more and. Oddly enough I was I just got back on a plane after six months. Out a week ago right and it felt different. I remember I used to tell people getting on a plane was I getting an Uber for me I do it so much that it doesn't have the same impact or significance, and it wasn't until my most recent trip, which is last weekend and got on a plane and I. Fell in love with getting on a plane again, right forgotten how that felt and I remember as a kid. So I'm originally from Belize I was born reason believes I didn't come to the states. A man technically, but I remember. I would come to the states during the summer and two weeks away from my actual departure date already felt excitement. I knew what I was going to wear. I put out everything that was so excited about it. And then as I became an adult and traveled so much the the excitement didn't come from the anticipation anymore it came from being in the actual places, right Sir but with this trip and being away from from from flying and travelling I fell in love with the idea of anticipating. Traveling. Again Sir it felt good. I was nervous. I didn't know what to expect, but it went well. So support, the the front line workers everybody who is creating. At, least kind of actively from our doctors nurses to are the grocery store workers to the airline employees everybody who is. Making. This as normal.

"Kind of introduce abstract to the general public as well as you know, there's been a big shift because of covid nineteen in the pandemic just you know not only how function in our daily lives by around business and how businesses are functioning. So can you tell me how covid nineteen has impacted epoch? Yeah I mean. Gobert has affected everyone in everything right I think. This is new to everyone and. Unfortunately, it's become our new normal right and there's been. Impact both from a customer in our in a partner standpoint. and seeing that we particularly cater to s be. In that segment has been significantly impacted. It's definitely had impact on on on a as a whole but what we found that the the number one priority for us and be is moving to the cloud and mobile SASS APPS and you're looking to to access near Sass. APPS, on mobile devices right. So in a way, Samsung is helping to facilitate that right. So the opportunity to to not only become touch list but be able to access the that they need to run your businesses especially in this time making that more seamless. And out with less friction given the circumstances. So I love what you said when you when you. Can Use the analogy that this is a upset his your baby that starting to grow and Saturday and see it crawl. So I'm sure now that you've seen some companies, put their solutions on APP stack and you've seen that grow. So what sort of APPS are you excited about that? You're seeing on APP stack if artist step back for second. I was a part of the a lot of the the the business side of this relationship in. Partner, aren't on boarding right. So that went from being a consumer of these applications to actually being being involved in more of a business conversation, right in a lot of these applications or applications that use myself. In particular G. Suite or Canada so so Being given an opportunity to now engage in from this perspective was not only insightful. It it it it. It felt good. An especially from a consumer perspective, right? It's like. Business thing. You you Never WanNa meet the you're either the people that you admire because in fear that they are not who they claim to be in this particular case. Especially from. US being technologist in having developed in times past or being developed developers. Now to kind of have this conversation with these companies that are actually doing it and doing it right it was actually refreshing and it it was. It felt good. In a lot of these like I said, canvas. G. Suite sign now pay Mo-, there's a huge. will use the term huge loosely because it is curated but there's there's a few applications that I'm excited about the ones that are there now that we that we launched, it are definitely on the list and there's definitely a few coming that I'm also excited for like click up fresh books but in on is the just whoever's onboard at this moment I'm truly excited to have them be a part of it because again, there's some personal satisfaction I get from this as well. Are there any types of APPs that aren't on abstract yet that you would like to see brought to the platform? I think we've done a really good job of identifying the ones that we want to be a part of it, and we've identified this specific categories specific to our. SNB customers and what their needs are and I think. We haven't made announcements in a on a few of them that are in the pipeline. But if I took a quick glance at those that are in the pipeline, I'm excited about the list. That's GonNa come after this week we when we talk about APPs in partners that are involved, it is a it's a dynamic list, right? So grows is we go along so. I'm excited with the ones that come in I don't want to let the cat out the bag. That I am looking forward to excellent excellent. I can't wait to to hear about that. So tell me what are the end user benefits related tap stack. So. As we mentioned before it, abstract provides for us to be customers. Essential place for them to find purchase provisions, manager cloud applications. But beyond that it, it comes at a discount, right? So it's It's also a a central place to manage all your subscriptions. So at what that does is it takes the focus off. The other things and gives you gives those are SMP, customers the ability to kind of work on building their business right and not have to worry about everything else. But just focus on building businesses and making it The best business can be given the circumstances so. again from from from a business perspective, it it it centralize your subscriptions. Those descriptions come at a discount gives you an opportunity to kind of bundle your your software and hardware together. And make that that purchasing flow of more seamless one. Yeah. I could see that we really beneficial for businesses just starting out when you know they may not have a lot of revenue being generated at the moment, but they still need to get their their business in order. Definitely. I know was big announcement when abstract just launched. Tell me is there anything else you know news related? That's coming up that we can get excited about events that you can. You can share outside of the fact that it is the best. Place out there. Honestly I like I said earlier, I think I'm. Abstract is is big on or what makes abstract important and relevant and beneficial are the partners be board So our excitement comes when we can and we have partners that we know our be customers need. And if we're able to deliver on net going back to my original I started about being plead. Creative and designing might my approach to? Creativity designers human centered, right So we build for our customers we built for the people who designed solutions for the people who are trying to problems for this particular cases are as customers and for them we're identifying the key applications and solutions they need so. Exciting news is we have some really good applications that exists in abstract now. Will Continue to deliver on those partnerships so that to make the life of an sm be more easier. Let's talk about companies that want to become a partner. What's the first step? You know? What did they do to offer their solution on? The first step is to be the best in your category. I want to reemphasize how important having abstract curated tries to us into our customers. Right. So if you are the best in your category will come knocking and beyond that. Not, only a SAS services that specifically targets a SMB's it has to be self service, right? So it it shouldn't have to require a lot of hand holding for on boarding because we want again the whole idea here is to make this. Not a burden for us and be customers and make it as as as as streamlined as possible. Right. So the less touch the better. So be the best in your category top to top three. In also have a solution that again is self service that anyone can Quickly on.

"Hey I'm Toni Moreland and this is POW podcasts of wisdom from the Simpson developed program but we talk about the latest tech trends and get insight into all of the opportunities available for developers looking to create for. Samsung. On today show I'm view facade, Roya Product. Manager for debts the Simpson Technology that allows users to extend their galaxy mobile device into a desktop computing experience. Not only do we talk about the advantages for developers? Their. APPS for decks. But how he traveled to Australia just before covid nineteen hit and with the borders closed, you can't come back. Enjoy. William Super excited to have with me presided. On the PODCAST I need to I, ask who is Prasada. Hey, thanks for having me I'm a product manager Samsung Electronics. I Kohler. Mobile enrollment than Knox man is products on recently epic. The deck says will and. In. My role I woke with the original teams to enable them. With the what's new with these products, how they can be offered customers? What challenges customers are facing in implementing these solutions on the other side, I work with our auditor James to enhance these solutions based on feedback we received from our customers partners. So how long have you been? Samsung for. A total of six years. Three years with the Samsung America in three years. Absent Dubai I. Didn't realize that she worked in Dubai. Two years and then I moved to something else did you study tech when you're in college? I am an engineer but I studied civil engineering. To considerable exemplary just. Dive Mutu. It I started my career with the as a program on the metering systems es foreign read doing the Y2k era I then moved to Jolla programming languages and I've been working hoax in company in India. For older decade while I was with them was posted to Dubai. A demand is the customer relationships there. while I was in, Dubai came across an opportunity to join Samsung to man is. A large-scale smart learning project where about forty classrooms across the country. Needs to be digitized with the large. Displays in the classrooms and also provide devices was students to consume the content. That was in two thousand thirteen and after completing the project I moved to the mobility side and knocks was just launched the time and I was constituted spread awareness of Knox work with partners. Believe was system just take it to the market and I continued in that role for about three years in twenty sixteen, I moved to the US enjoined a global knock solution engineering team. On since then I've done different roles like Solution Engineering Partner Management Project Management, and now product management. You know recently did a podcast interview with the Knox partner. program. Yes. Excellent. Yeah. I mean it's a great How do partners BELISCE Aleutians get supple than Actually, work with the same thing in promoting solutions it's a nice platform. So you mentioned that you eventually made it to the US tell me where you based out of right now. I work out of our mountain view office. In the bay area we also have The knocked America are US became also operates majority knocks. On auditees engineering the productivity work out of that offices. In is that where you're at right at this moment as of this moment, I'm in Melbourne Australia. My family lives here and I came to visit them mid of margin since then I'm stuck here because of the closures on both sides says continued to work remotely raising, go all the technical capabilities commpany variety index. I can't imagine what that must be. Glad to know that you and your family are safe and that you're able to continue working. Hopefully in the voters will open and you'll be able to come home but I'm just not sure when that's going to be. Let's talk a bit more about decks. Now, what exactly is decks? So Samson becks is a software platform that. Or smartphone or tablet into a desktop computing experience, it is built into many of the latest Samsung smartphones and tablets. It's free. You don't have the by anything all of you to get started using decks just a monitor hits, GMI ADAPTER END keyboard mouse, and with Dr Latest Galaxy Note Twenty you can use decks wirelessly on most of your TV's support meter cast. Of the best part is why you are running backs on the Monitor. You can continue to use your device at the same time. So you're attending video conference on the big screen, but he can also take notes are bras to your emails on your delays at the same time. So I know my first experience with decks was a little a year ago and back then actually had to stick it into a cradle. So you're saying now it's it's made a cast ESPN larger display to MIRA cast wide leslie vendex was launched with Galaxy S. eight. Yes. There were a couple of hardware accessories like a cradle was quite boo Pluggedin v graduated from there wireless activity now there are. Certain limitations, any number of APPS can run a while you're connected wirelessly. But you have the option of just going into a meeting room connecting to a display, AD Leslie and running your presentation software full. So can you tell me where did the name decks come from? What does that mean? Yeah, anything ending with exit? Catchy. Right. But decks is a shot version of a desktop audience. When you activate it by connecting your phone or tablet or monitor you'll get the familiar looking fellow for desktop around meant with features and functions you're used to multiple and recyclable windows, keyboard shortcuts, and dragon draw extra do users to install any special apps or using special API is to enable Samson decks on their devices. No, no special applications required it's pre ability on the device founder You don't have to install anything It just need to devise to a monitor with cable index will launch automatically an IT, administrator around other side can control of the decks experience like allowing this alluring enabling becks and choosing which applications can run index mode. Okay. Can Be done using their preferred em. So definitely for security, that's a an important aspect is decks only compatible with android or is it compatible beyond the android less? So decks can be used in three different variations the to meet various needs i. you can use it by connecting your Samsung android device to monitor all, you can run it in a standalone mode on the tablet screen without connecting to monitor or you can use your pc or Mac by installing an application on the MAC or PC. Do is through USB cable and run decks on your. Laptop or Mac, but the experience itself is powered by the software. In both on Samson smartphones tablets. So what applications can.

"King set of things. So I'm going to be putting a little bit more like short videos on showing how to create games with. Some days and get I'll traded relief and technology. So right now we have so many technologies that you can use to many platforms like a face or constitute dementia before and unity, and so it would be cool to install a specific things that have two games bid help to publish them because I think I think sometimes when you are creating a game or an APP if you are not forced to share with others, then it can soul. Always if you know that you want to publish it in the APP, regardless if successful or not you still have kind of look almost at a goal to achieve that shared like that game. So so that's where I quite like going to start creating. Actually, have to finish should be deal in the next couple of days around action. So we'll see how that goes. I. Have a few that I need to record that. Well, I have to start one by one. So we'll see how takes me to create and publish them. If developers want to get in contact with you. What is the best way? Well they can go directly if it's special something technical great to to send me an email and you can use my night something email. So you're going to see the notes that Diego Rivera at part of the Thomson to come. So quickly, it's better that he chick notes so you can send me day in specifically we are talking about an error it's great that you seem like a screen shot sometimes people describe their liquid. Let's were giving me a lot of information screen shops, intense works best. If not the Silken finding the online. So the best thing usually I go yellow seven, seven seven. So his leg translation of ice and Spanish. So that's H. I. E.. L. O. Seven seven, and you can find me like that on twitter in our instagram set, etc. So twitter a receive a little. Messages. So I can respond directly dare dot like I say to my email that's a good way to get in contact with me. When you are not coding, you're not working what do you do for fun? Spending time with family have a big family. So literally get some popcorn getting from the TV and watch I made it movie I have a little CASO. We were still not at the age where we can all just watch like people scream these still have to be cartoons At some point, we will graduate to real real people.

"The chance to go deer and sometimes the sponsor and sometimes like talk with people. I always participating myself creating that I always like start creating like a concept that I'm going to deploy in ended up doing something, and so it doesn't work out but he's really great to go on Cedar Results of the OPS that people created Hackett phones or two games as people game jams, and did something that brings a lot of energy from young people creating cool things together. And I think probably what I enjoy the most around that. Everybody there his the all there for the same reason you know what? I mean. It's to be creative I. One time participated in a forty eight hour film project. So this is where different teams break up and you have forty eight hours to put together a film and you're your script you're filming in your your editing it you're doing everything all within forty eight hours and just being around You know like minded people. So I can totally understand that when you're at a game jam and a hacker thought just being around the energy of all those people I mean, that's gotta be pretty pretty exciting. Yeah. Yeah and sometimes people come up with like some things that you're like. How did giving came up with that idea you know and and it's really cool. So and less the year with something we had one in Washington DC, that one was. Created in conjunction with MIT, and it will surround health and coming up with like a Diaz to help people in the health industry and the health sector to well help people at all have actually ceases health problems, etcetera etcetera, and we will talk with some teams that were coming up with so many incredible solutions. Some one of them at one team was kind like A. Checking Day. The SMARTWATCH is more watches and had to do with elderly care. So like trying to shake things around I liga, it could take someone fully wanted his elder and could be falling and. GYROSCOPE into watch could help with that detection or how they could collect information like Adamo like the heart beads or is leap patterns. Think that's your calendar Saint Louis. We already have these awesome hardward at how do we do? How do we used to help others and I thought that it was incredibly interesting and you shall to do anything that has to do. With health so that particular Hackman Wisconsin. Oh that's different. Bad. But yeah, that's that's the entire point to bring some creativity and bring blackout two different things that sometimes don't go along and put him to work together. Yeah. No that that's true. I. Once went to a meet up group where people were presenting their APPS, and somebody head created an APP for the elderly. The chance of them falling down his person hid worth their way through this APP. Not Realizing that when people fall. They don't fall like a tree falling in the forest they crumble. And so this APP developer hadn't really thought of that that the motion is not you know a tree falling it's. Kind of collapsing down and that was because of the you know the people that were in attendance at that that meet up group that then help this APP developer understand kind of a basic thing that it was just an oversight. But. I don't think you'd say oversight is that sometimes that happens a lot developers and you can see with a little technologies that didn't have to be adapted Anita. Sue We dad. Sometimes. Developers in-depth solving problems don't exist what are the problem something different. seeps in a great job on reaching out to the community and sharing your knowledge and no one of your very popular series is the Tyson Tippett's get youth been publishing on. Youtube. Can you tell us? Are there any other upcoming topics that that you have planned? Yeah. Actually. It's fund like how these things.

"Developer Dad likes to connect with people to like Sutak Lot. So you're going to hear daydream podcast this episode that you're going to ask me one thing and I'm going to to answer like twenty different things because Aah. That's why I do what I do a relaxed talk a reluctant connect with people and tried to figure out the kinds of things that people really are passionate about a like to spend a lot of time. Doing things that are like in and people can notice in. That's the kind of thing that elect to finding other developers. So I started my career as developer a steel decoding bad in general. What I do right now is to use the technical knowledge to be able to connect with older developers and tried to find your passion to kind of things that really take them in the kind of things that they relate to create. So for those of you who don't know both Diego and I are developer evangelists, we actually work together We've been working together now for. Over a year I would say over a year now. Yeah, absolutely. That's great. So before you joined Samsung, were you already in evangelist for another company Yeah actually have been doing at daybreak I'll develop relations for like seven years now. So different companies, the first time that I did it was with Microsoft and then the same chance to do something similar way Red Hat, and also with. Company that You're going to be able to find that a CA technologies that one get acquired and now will happen to What this role with Samsung for a little bit over a year like you said. So, how was it that you? Actually I learned about this role at Samson. Well at some Sun e I think was looking for another opportunity like you said, ca get acquired. So I wanted to continue doing things on developer relations and I started looking and well, obviously whatever you see something like a name of Samsung that's going to popping any search you know. So it's it's such a big company. So influential that immediately like, wow, developer relations with Samsung. So I immediately honing into Dadan and well immediately applied and fortunately for me it worked out. Yeah, no, we're really excited when you joined I will say Diego is an absolute character. He is so much fun to work with but. Outside of his. Very outgoing personality. He is truly a Tech Guy I. Mean I am amazed at the knowledge that you have that you that you brought to the team. I do remember during the interview process. You are the one of all the applicants that really blew us all the way because you went above and beyond already creating some some code as part of the process that we just said. Oh. My Gosh we need to. We need to have this guy now something unique is that even though Diego, and I worked together in the same team we're actually on opposite sides of the country. So I'm based on the West Coast and you are on the east coast. So tell a little bit about wire there on the east coast where you are and how did you end up there? Well I am in in Atlanta in Atlanta Metro Georgia I've been here almost seven years. So I moved here for my first developer relations -sition. So the that was the position that mentioned a with Microsoft and the had an opening here. I ended up moving before data was out living in in Texas before data relief to eat in Michigan for a couple of months before data lived in. Spain and before that I was living in Columbia. so He'd Wisconsin a long road to to make it although a here. And your birthplace is Columbia's correct young Colombian, and that's where I started my career. So that's where I.

"Does something useful for us or something we want it to do but then it doesn't really get out of the way. In when I first saw voice insert playing with a ways assistance like I didn't get it at first but then after playing with them more like you know this is kind of fulfills that kind of lifelong ambition of hey go get something done in get out of the way it's the best tech I know for getting out of the way. So in a back in two thousand seventeen had a really good a technology job with a big corporation or caught my cushy corporate job and decided to get a little bit of H. I decided to be a little bit crazy and. Leave that bounced around a little bit with some start up opportunities and ended up founding my own voice start up with the idea being, hey, it's really hard to voice applications. Today I'm GonNa, make it much easier for you to do it or our tagline was wordpress for voice work presses in the web world course lots of templates makes it easy for small business to get online really easily we wanted to build that voice. I will say I think it's still a really good idea. And allow ways kind of untapped but you know I I think there's a saying that ideas are cheap execution is hard on certainly learned that you know I think we built a bunch of things, but we weren't fully executing inside started veering over into kind of consulting side and doing my own consulting work and that's when I. entered that expe-, Pakistan one night and those conversations led to where I currently am super happy I did it. It was a great experience. It's something I always kind of the back of my head. Hey, go off and do your own thing right whether succeeds or fails it doesn't matter. which exactly I once heard that you learn more from failed startups than you do from successful startups so I to have ventured into that area I to have failed and lots of great learning still come out of that.

I have to ask you first who is Roger Kibi? Well I guess I can answer that question two ways will want him a husband and father to two teenage daughters Oh boy but yes, used to be pretty busy these days. But professionally in the senior developer of Angeles for Samsung speak what does that mean? It really means I go out and talk to third party developers agencies and companies can encourage them to go build upon the bixby platform You know I have a long career in technology the for about twenty five years insulting. I've been technology architect technology strategy found my own startup and I've been invoice for the last several years about the last eighteen months or so less than eighteen months out with. Samson. About the same time that I did an interesting. We both have the same title at Samsung. ME. Being senior. Developer. The developer program doing something similar to what you're doing go out and teaching developers and designers how to create for Sam. So pretty cool. We're along the same lines. Yeah. I think it's a it's an amazing. Job actually kind of a combination of you've got to be familiar with the technology but you're you know love to go talk to people in and understand what they're doing and figuring out how technology can help solve their problems or help enable them to do something amazing what a combination exactly So tell me a little bit how you actually got your start at Samsung I heard the you actually won a contest. At our developer conference and that's wet put you on the radar at the folks at Samsung. So tell me a bit about that. Yes. I heard of that Bixby in twenty eighteen He was still a private Beta in early two, thousand eighteen. And I was doing my own voice consulting in my own voice start up then and I thought, hey, there's this new platform they had this hacker thon I love to play with new technology. One of those people pies the first piece of new technology too much. My wife's Chagrin often So I went downloaded it and started playing with it and I realized this is Sutton, really cool and doing things in a different way than what the other voice platforms are doing. So I built this capsule capsule, voice application, bixby terminology and was all about just being. In I recycle this, can I compost this? I need to throw it in the trash right question that often get from my daughter's is dad what does this go into? Some scratch my head. Three bins don't WanNa be responsible citizen input. Right thing.

"Tell us about your role here at Samsung. So my title is senior developer evangelists, but I often tell people commit teacher. and. There are different sides to that. So one side of being a teacher Samsung is going out into the community. So I will speak at conferences conduct workshops I will teach at universities, lots of different ways to get out into the community and teach how to design and create for Samsung. Here at the office though I am writing blogs creating youtube tutorial videos, we've now been doing this podcast series. We've also launched a Webinar series. So a lot of different ways where I can help the community but being here in the office. So it is all about assisting designers and developers on creating for Samsung. Yes. You touch a little bit on something that I wanted to ask about. A webinar series, which is something that was just launched very recently where you did amazing work immune from building the studio, which is really cool. Thank you to our webinars to come up with a name, which is while, yes men talk a little bit about while I'm sure everybody wants to know what that means and then also the recent Webinar you did. We launched this new webinar series called. Wow, which stands for webinars of wisdom and the idea is to not just teach but do it in a very fun sort of quirky way. So if you haven't seen any of the episodes of please, go check them out. You can find them on Youtube just search Samsung, developed a program and just put in wow and it'll show their the latest Webinar that we did was about how to become a themes Ui designer what it takes. So you have to submit a portfolio of a mockup of a theme and what's that gets reviewed and approved. Then you get the ability to download the software start creating themes. And so while then led to what we're doing right now, which is Paulo. So Powell. Talk about what that means a little bit about. So Powell is podcasts of wisdom I mean, it took me off about two seconds. You know when we were done creating. Wow I thought to come up with something for podcast what could that be and it was pretty quick. It just came up with how podcast wisdom. So lots of great plans with that. We're actually putting together our schedule already of. All the interviews that we're going to be doing. So we'll be interviewing some internal people here at Samsung, a lot about our technologies and our processes, and how you can be successful using our tools were also going to be interviewing designers and developers that are already successful with. Samsung. So we've already lined up quite an impressive list of people that I'll be interviewing on POW that can share their journey. How did they become a designer or a developer selling for Samsung? So super excited about that. I'm super excited about it as well. Another thing that you've worked on that I've been really impressed with this. You've created some amazing tools to support designers and the cool thing about Tanya's that you've been on both sides of the fence on the side of defense as the freelance designer attended our workshop in. Now you're on the other side of the fence of knowing the kinds of challenges that designers sometimes face and have come up with some amazing solutions in the way of tools. And so if you can share some of those tools that you put in place. Yeah. For sure the first tool that I created called the asset creator I noticed that when I was doing watch face designs that I was spending just as much time creating the graphics that are needed on your seller page as I was creating for the watch face. So I needed to find a way to speed up the time that it takes to publish your. Watch. Face the craters photoshop template file that automates a lot of what is required when it comes to saving all of the different images. If you're interested, you can go to our website, which is develop Samsung Dot com actually wrote a blogging even created a youtube tutorial video on how to use the at Creator. So you can just search asset crater in the search field and they'll be link for downloading the crater itself. So asset creator I think. There's a recently pool that you just created the Aso inspired by the Asset Creator I. Created some lifestyle photos. The photos are unique pictures of the watch in use. So I've taken the watching, I've put into unique backgrounds. So place it on leather jacket or found some tech looking you know events or a pipe or just different lifestyle pictures of these photos in what's unique is that you can just copy paste your watch face into the layer in. Photoshop and Photoshop automatically position at depth of field blur will do all of the necessary adjustments to the picture so that it is embedded into the scene huge timesaver, las unique pictures out there. So again, you can find the lifestyle photos on our website going to develop produce Samsung Dot com. So one of the important things that you said a couple of times with both of the tools is this timesaver. What kind of time are you talking? About. So I would say you know, I, would spend half a day creating the assets for your seller page absolutely, and that's why I wanted you to share is a huge time saver. So you've done so much already in just a year and a half anything we should look forward to yeah one of the things I'm most excited about we're actually doing a partnership with the Art Institute of Dallas so we're going to be conducting an eleven week. Course for the students there that'll be really exciting. We're GONNA die for really deep into watch designing all these students will get an opportunity to publish their designs and make those available to the world. So really excited about that and we'll be doing some additional outreach. So I know that we're going to go to how design in Boston this year. So that'll be a ton of fun. We're GONNA set up a booth we'll have some interaction. For people to come in and actually design watch faces on site. You know in the past we've gone to Dobie Max that it's been a wonderful experience in we have plans of returning there again in in twenty twenty. Yeah. I'm excited about both of those house new US we haven't been there before but who in planning what we WANNA do there some of be really exciting. So hopefully, we might be able to meet some folks there as well. So, what's the biggest challenge with your role here at Samson I would say public speaking I mean, I'm very chatty person but you know I have not had much experience getting up on stage. Really Wow, Tony. I'm really surprised to hear that I would not have thought then you must have forgot about the time that bombed. We were hosting about one hundred developers here at the campus and I was I was asked to just give a short presentation. I mean, maybe ten minutes. The presentation could not have been easier. All I was to do is talk about myself. I just started Samsung like two months earlier and just going to show a few slides and talk about me as a designer and. Samsung. Well just before I was going on stage I was in the back of the room and a developer guy comes up and he starts asking me about all these technical questions about our watch. I didn't know the answers the designer. Any biometric sensors there were in the specs behind what they did. So he turns to me and he says. I'm surprised Samson. Hired you. So now I'm dating myself. was like qualified to do this job in the announced my name to come up on stage? Run up to the stage and I grabbed the clicker to start going through my presentation. Can I grab it upside down. Click the button and I don't realize it. But I'm actually going backwards to the presentation that was given before mine and I don't realize this talking away then I turn and I look at the projection screen. And.

"How about yourself? I'm good. Excellent can tell you. I'm really excited to have the opportunity to interview today this. This should be fun. So how long have we learned Cheddar maybe a year that's actually a year and a half a year and a half it seems like longer in some ways. But I think that's a good thing in a good way. Yes. So I'm excited because in the year and a half we've been working together. You've done so many amazing things. And I'm excited for the community to get to know you into to learn about some of the things that you've done. Yeah. So tell us a little bit about Tony. So before I started working at Samsung, my entire career as a freelance graphic designer. At a nice office at home I got to work on a lot of projects I get to set my own hours. I, mean, really it was. It was a great gig. Tell me a little bit about some of the cool projects that you worked on as a freelance designer. Sure. Yeah. I did fun project for Nokia I didn't animation for the conference. In they wanted to music to go with it had enough. You know this song the final countdown. Yes. Yes. Looking down by a band called, Europe? Right. So they wanted that song and I said, well, you can't just go take that song I said however. How about I record and knock off version of that song. Okay. So musically inclined as well. Yes. Back when I was a kid. I thought I was going to be a rockstar and. The Band and did that for ten years and realize. Band. Yes. Yup and so when they said, hey, they wanted this this song I said I can do that.

"Releases. We're now rolling out on a regular cadence new releases of the browser that are released through play store and also through galaxy store, and we do sometimes do releases that are timed to. device releases, but those are still in the in the context of our of our regular software release schedule also. And that's really important for the web. The web needs to be evergreen when there's a security vulnerability or some kind of feature that Web developers want to use. They don't want to have to wait for a new device to come out in order to be able to use that feature likewise, when are features or technologies that are deprecated from the web stack you really want. Either because they're vulnerable or their their difficult to use than just not very performanter, however, you want to be able to make sure that you cannot date all the browsers to to remove future. That's great to hear that that the updates are not tied to new device releases. You know because I'm sure that developers are wanting to get those updates just as soon as soon as possible and you can get those features out to the to the developer community. That's right. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So tell me what is the benefit of using Samson Internet over another browser like say Google Chrome. One of the things that we pride ourselves on is a focus on user privacy. So we think that we have better privacy features than Google Chrome and that's certainly a goal that we have in something that you can see as evidence through a lot of the features that we ship with the browser. So for instance, we have a secret browsing mode which is secured by Knox been also. Linked in to our to buy metrics on the device. So that you can secure with your fingerprint or your face id or or however We also integrated into a Samsung pay currently that's only in the US, but there is a web feature called web payment which integrates into Samsung, pay a for US customers that allows you to pay directly from your webpage that using Samson pacing the payment technology we integrate into when you I. so that's the Samsung Specific Ui across the device which which are browser based on top of. As also as part of the whole privacy consideration, we allow our users to download and install ad blockers. We allow them to download and install extensions, which can be privacy helping or can be other things like shopping related. For instance, we also allow you to choose your under felt search engine. So we have for a while now allowed you choose duck duck Oh, a search engine, which is a very privacy polka search engine, but with the release eleven point two that's about to come out. We actually even increase that list form we have way more. Search engines that you can choose as your default surgeon. You can't do that with Google chrome and we have our own built-in smart anti tracking, technology. That uses machine learning on the phone to in a very privacy focused way shield your browsing activity from unwanted tracking on the web, which is a major issue right now for a lot of users IOS pretty safe to say that just about everybody at some point has had something hacked whether it's a credit card or maybe it's an online account always happy to hear about new technologies that will definitely help keep the the Internet safer. Can we talk a little bit about revenue. How does Simpson Internet create revenue? Well we are getting revenue from search referral. That's the same as every other browser that's out there I mean how browsers make money browsers usually make money from search for we also have opportunities for business development when it comes to. More. Quick Access Bar. Which is Region specific. So when you first load the browser. You're going to see a number of links that show up on your quick access. Scream. That all of that is user. configure rable and can change those want to. It's about what the defaults are. Those are really how Simpson being money. I think the other part of it is more of a strategic play. There are billions of users using the web. why would someone to cede that territory to somebody else instead of being able to control that user experience and provide the best user experience we camp s great. So how does the web developer ecosystem differ from other developer ecosystems? One thing that is important to think about what the web developer ecosystem is that it's inherently cross browser cross device and cross Os, and that's true of the web in general. The web needs to be able to exist across different browsers across the Brunell acids. Across different form factors, you need to be able to bring up your webpage and have it work on your television as well as your laptop screen as well as your phone responsive design progressive enhancement have been some of the key technologies that web developers have been using. To ensure that that can be the case feature detection These kinds of things are really important when it comes to building websites do not just building particular device. You're not just building for one particular vendor. You're you've really got to be listening to paying attention to a lot of different voices when you enroll in developed a program for a specific platform. You tend to be focusing on one particular divisor. One particular brand one particular. Os, and and that also provides clarity. which can be a good thing. However, when you're developing for the web, you need to pay attention all these different platforms and devices. That's something we're md an income in why we're putting so much energy into that because it can be a place where numbers can come and find out information across different platforms. You mentioned a little bit about Progressive Web APPs, for new developers out there. Can you explain what exactly is a progressive web APP so progressive web APP is I mentioned technologies like Progressive Enhancement and. Responsive Design which help developers build web applications that can that can work well across different browsers, different lessons, different devices, different form factors. The idea of Progressive Web APPs brings at to the next level where we try to learn a little bit from the success of native applications on the mobile platform in particular and are able to provide a very APP like user experience for the web application itself. So a guerilla good example of progressive web probably one of the best ones out there is the twitter Bwi. a lot of people are removing twitter from their phones entirely simply using your moving the native app I should say from their funds entirely and just using the progressive web out because it provides almost all of the same features but in much more lightweight than which privacy centric kind of kind of way because when you're using the twitter progressive APP, it's been saved from the browser and therefore it runs inside the browser even though from a user perspective, it appears like any other application on the phone it's actually running inside of the browser. So it's running in the same context sold the other browser tabs going. So it's a bit like. I've called it having your cake and eating it too in terms of being able to build something really easily build something cross platform, but also be able to enjoy that real estate on the phone home screen. Push notifications that keep bringing user tension back ability to to have a through service worker kind of offline experience, all the kind of features that users expect from. A regular native application they can begin to expect from these kinds of progressive web APPs. Yeah. Talk a little bit about Ar VR say relate to Samsung Internet can. Can you share a little bit about what you're doing in those areas? So Samsung Internet was one of the first browsers to launch the web. VR. API THAT API. Recently, deprecated in.

"To will right back on top of the screen. Now, if the web developer didn't test their application in Samsung Internet, they might put a key piece of Ui underneath that section of screen where we overlay the. Button. So it you know it's things like that are these these little micro issues that testing really helps is not necessarily about web standards compliance. It's more about how you make sure that your web application runs correctly and all the you I is correct for the UI choices that browser has made displays its US actually have a lot of experience with designing. Watch faces for Simpson watches in the same is true. It's best to design around the system icons that appear under certain circumstances so that you don't have any usability issues. So. What does Simpson Internet done to drive awareness for developers? So a lot of the work that we started off when we started the team in sixteen, let's turn to drive a market awareness of something. We already knew that because we had some some stats. That, we had strong usage numbers so. We are roughly ten percent of all mobile browsing in Europe. For instance, the issue was actually driving awareness amongst developers that they really needed to to understand those numbers bear for attention to testing and. You basically why they should pay attention to us as as a browser. So we started off by working with. People like stop count of. That actually. Is One source that people use rebel stats, browsers on we van went on to work with. Google analytics. So we after we've gotten stuck counter to kind of separate us off from Google Chrome. We. Dan went to Google analytics and we got them to separate us off from Google Chrome and amazingly after that happened, we started at all these calls from different people UK government was one example where. They started to say, Hey, we've just had this amazing jump in usage from Samsung. Internet while they actually have a jump they had they always had very high usage of Samsung Internet but they just never knew it because Google Google analytics was lumping us together with Google, chrome. So. That's a problem with a lot of these stats. Keeper sites is that they weren't if they were just if they were not paying attention to your specific browser, they were lumping together with a particular engine that the browser is based on. Getting that right was like a key element, and then we can take those numbers to other places. When we can say look, this is how many of your users are what percentage of users using Samsung Internet we really think you would benefit from talking to us or you would benefit from testing on Samsung. Internet. Would you like to come do some joint projects with us all that kind of stuff we also have been working with places like and the end. So Mozilla developer network or MD N has recently over the last few years has changed from a Berry Mozilla specific website into basically a documentation website for the web across browsers and what's underpin that is that they now have a product advisory board which includes people from. Microsoft Samsung Zillah obviously Google they also people from a couple of smaller organizations such as Baku which kind of open source development shop so They have been doing a lot to to kind of create and to reinforce the the understanding that developers have. That's a cross platform development site. So as part of our work there, we made sure that when there's a documentation page, a particular API naval listed browsers underneath that documentation that is the the listed. Supported browsers. Versions for that particular API that Simpson Internet appears not last. CanNot use dot com is another example of a website that people use when they want to find out if they can use a particular API in particular browser, they were also not separating US south from chrome so. Actually working with them, and then working with them through 'em the end we actually got them to use all of the MD compatibility data, which is data that we update. That's data that our team goes in the background and updates through get hub through an open source procedure. So that all data data's up to date both on md on and on. CanNot I use so that developers have up to date information about which is they can use them which versions of which browser, and then in general, we've been doing a lot of things like writing blog posts. We ride a lot of technical blog posts about the use of different API's use of different technologies, opinion pieces about. Topics, on the web. To focus on things where Samsung has some kind of engineering investment. So things like Progressive Web APPs. That's one area where we done a lot of work. Recently, we've also done a lot of work on Webex Czar, the immersive. Web. And things like what payment? That kind of thing we also sponsor conferences we got and speak at conferences and events. These days were obviously we're doing a lot of virtual events and really trying to play a leadership role in how The developer advocacy community deals with the current situation with a lockdown. By showing how you can very effectively engaged with developers and created conversation developers using virtual. Virtual means you know I couldn't agree with you more. You know the timing with the launch of our new podcast here is actually right in line with probably what's going to be a huge change for all of the industries as we move forward in this new world of information sharing virtually. Attended virtual office hours and it was nice because you know you brought in some outside people, some industry people to participate, and that's and that's something that we that's a kind of ethos that we have had from the beginning We actually ran a two day event in San Jose. A couple years ago called temps on create. And, the whole idea of that was to feature Samsung people. Yes. But at least half the speakers that we had were from Worth Party speakers that we brought in from the industry Speaker, we had Microsoft, Speaker Rita Google Speaker you know it also fits together with the fact that our team besides doing developer advocacy and outreach were also doing a. Lot of industry work. So we do work in w three C I co-chair group in W3C, which is the world web consortium that sets standards for the web. I co-chair group, they're called technical architecture group, which is kind of Technical Steering Group for Web Standards Mike Colleague Eva Co chairs immersive web working group, which is working on technologies that bring Ar Vr. To The web. So we're not only a role in terms of getting the word out about this technologies, but we're also playing a role terms of setting the standards. Is Simpson Internet just for android. The work that we're doing is on Samsung Internet for Android team that were attached to second unit for him. If you have a Simpson TV or if you have a Samsung Watch, you may also know that there are other versions of Samsung. Internet pay the same logo and they are also based on chromium, but they're actually built by different teams within Samsung divisions. So there's some cross working between those different groups especially because they're all using the chromium based today, share a lot of knowledge in the Charlotte of information but actually the work that we're doing we focus on Samsung Internet for android. When you have improvements that you want to make to the Samsung Internet browser or those released at the same time when released. So one of the things that we did very early on and I think this was right around the time when I started in two thousand sixteen is we unlinked browser releases from device.
