This is Apples secret weapon to make you care about AR
"With need. Scott stein are guru on virtual and automated reality reality reality to welcome scott a thank you so i'm gonna reality or a are has been something that tech companies trying to make a thing for years and the best example that we still point to which is several years old now is pokemon go which really drew people into this world at least for this kind of gimmicky game. Where are we couple years since then. I know there's some folks are so played a very many as as during the peak was the state of aol. Right now transitional. You know. I feel like what we're looking at We you know we had these the magic leap in all lens that we're talking about how that's all going to be coming soon. And it's not and those expensive multi thousand dollar headsets ended up being slotted into business use. And you never see them in the real world the things you see our vr things. Even those are pretty rare and are kind of like a special treat that people get themselves so the air on phones has just been continuing to evolve and apple has been doing this all along. Google has a our tools That are baked in. And i think what we're seeing now with with a are is a move to more practical things in the in the past. A i got to talk to to apple mike. Rockwall alexandra mcginnis and they're saying that the first goal was just get you to get it to exist in the world in two thousand seventeen so that was your whole like pokemon dinosaurs things that you know. Oh this magically appears it's cool by their latest focused similar. Google is to do something productive and whether that's helpful information or creative stuff. It's like two different pads on the lighter side. Apples made a big deal of lighter sensors on the iphone twelve pro on the ipad pro. Those are opening up into basically creative. Augmented reality yeah. Let's let's slow down for a second there. Let's talk about light art because light are really is the eastern referred to as one of the secret weapons. That apple has a to make a are thing but just for listeners. Who don't know what lighter is. Could you sort break it down for us. Yeah absolutely. I mean stuff like this has been around for a bunch of years of being following tack Google tango. If you're if you're a technical you follow this stuff Years ago had same idea where you would scan the world. It's shooting out. Little infrared dot dot array like like like the face. I d camera or the microsoft connect with that technology way. Back on the connect was shrunken down in one of the makers that was incorporated babble was a bob apple So what it's doing sending out this like these little things. Is there a light pink measuring the space and you get like a dot matrix. A measurement of the space really fast and that meshes meshes is the term for creates a a basic map that space and instead of just saying oh. I recognize a floor. It's like throwing a blanket on the world where it's like. Oh i see where the chair comes up. I see where the walls are. I see where everything you know. And then that combines with things like computer vision which is like recognizing stuff like people you know where the camera like. Google does a stewart's like that's a person that's dog that's so it's a combination of those two things. That's what light are is. Helping do is mapping about five meters away from you see. I've seen this impractical cases where the aca Use your phone to scan living room in the flyer. Central recognizes though. This is a couch. This is the floor is your tv and it'll not consistently put your whatever i hear. You can't pronounce names anyways. The whatever the cabinets and intellectually know that the cabinet will will slot in there in between your tv. Your couch how he said lighters been around for a while. It's just coming into these phones or death on twelve lineup. now we've had a offer while. I'm just curious. How like what does light are do. Now that like these phones couldn't do before. Yes so that's where like when i was mentioning the super weapon in the story. It's kind of double. It's double edged. Meeting one is that it's lighter. But i think apple's real secret weapon is scale so when i talked to developers it's like you go. Oh there's already bad here what's the deal. Well it's kinda like when you see a technology and you go will. It didn't feel like a got there until it got there. Like i feel like what apple is doing is the same idea but refined and pushed into a lot more devices so the iphone twelve pro and the ipad pro but much bigger footprint than google tango was on just two very fringy phones and but but what google in the other thing that track. Here you're right like what really does for a are is. It makes things speedier and better like it gets a ping on stuff faster but it's simultaneously happening with computer vision getting better at doing the same thing without that so google has been doing this with just cameras. Were vr headsets. Do this with four cameras and like they can approximate a lot of that really fast. So it's a dance between that and the more advanced sensors. That's get under the hood. But like i think just means it's faster and better recognizing the world but the second part that i think is interesting is this whole like three d. scanning movement that has been around for a while but is about creating three d objects that you can then share with other people that's getting more of a groundswell in is becoming less fringy and nerdy with every passing year. Interestingly enough to the we're talking about this on phones there's constant rumors. That apple is going to release a headset. At some point of. Do you think the future of a our lies it glasses or in our phones. I think it'll be both. And i think what what you know. Talking with adobe briefly about like their head of a are about what they're doing air creative tools a very interesting observation. He made where they haven't thinking for a while is that it's very hard to enter the ar vr space Until it works with the stuff you already got all your apps like an oculus. Quest is a game console. it doesn't interact with like your phone apps. And so you wanna open like zumra wanted open document. It's a pain. You have to huggins so google apple. Google did this with daydream. Kind of but google and apple needs to approach having work with the phones and qualcomm is already laid this groundwork out. The qualcomm makes the chips in like all the air vera had set right now apple could be the other big competitor in that space. But what they've been talking about is plugging phones in headsets with usb c or wirelessly there already a few emerging anything that's wet provides the power but also like you say the app compatibility so i guess like we the reason i say yes and is like so your app on your phone could do a lot of it and then you plug in your headset like headphones for your eyes. And you're doing the rest of it. I think that extends it and then you think about apple that makes a lot of sense because like the apple watch it becomes another peripheral that makes sense in the sense. Like you're relying iphone is really the brains of the muscle powering experiences but ultimately you view it on your headset or your watch or whatever that doesn't require heavy lifting isn't required you don't necessarily wanna processor heating up right by your exactly and that gets you to things like five g because like talking to developers about five john headsets. It's very slow. Get for that exact reason like qualcomm has has the roadmap for five g. Headsets but it adds a lot of battery drain. You got to build more of a thing on your head No one's really done it yet. But like you're five g phone powers that gets to all the five g. Ar in the cloud stuff. That like microsoft. Google apple. like everyone's going for that. So i think it makes a lotta sense that that would be the path and then like apples processors. Like we're seeing the mac book and the am one like they just keep getting more crazy powerful and you kind of say four. What but like a are is a very intense said a processes and so. That's the stuff that those those processors could drive a lot of that. And then you again. You're not sticking it on your head. Otherwise i don't know will make something. That's like sleek on your face. It'd be hard if you had to put all the stuff in there you talk about a are as a creative tool elaborate on this idea of what. What exactly can visiting with a are so like when i downloaded the first set of like light are unable apps. It really surprised me going back to the ipad pro in the spring. Like the first bunch of a our apps again. We're like pokemon go dinosaur you know dinosaur play game. A lot of these are three d scanners and they are. They're pretty alienating at first. 'cause you're like you bring it up and suddenly you wave it around and you're creating this measure of your room and then you get this like crazy kind of dollhouse three d. model. And if you've never done it before you might wonder where to start how you create this. Some of them look kind of broken. In an interesting way spoke to like one of the bigger repositories of three d objects stock like it. Sketch fab saying it takes them finessing to get there so like these things and that's the stuff that's happening now with lighter. It's not there are some like. Oh the games run better. You can have like a remote control car now your table and like the table blocks it right and it can like hit a wall or like a it could hit like a box like recognizes all the things in your world which is like air. Headsets are going to start doing. But i think it's the creative part. That's interesting whether it's like really scanning in creating tools. And then both adobe and apple have a our creative toolkits with reality composer ero where. They're trying to get people to do this too. So that's what i mean by that. But it's so interesting to me when i look at the iphone. How little of that is at the forefront of what you see on a daily basis like you would never be aware of it and that's the hard part to get on board like apples. Camera doesn't have three d. Scanning it just but it uses light are for focus like in the background so apple definitely hasn't like made it a main part of ios yet but it's in the background

8th-generation iPad review
"With me is our IPAD expert Scott Stein welcome Scott. So Scott we had you on right after that September apple than to show your impressions of all the announcements and the eighth Jan. ipad was not the most exciting product mentioned. You know we spent a little time talking about it but. You spent a few weeks with it. Has, your. Opinion Changed, are you what are you feeling about it now I think it's fine. I think it is not surprising IPAD. This is an IPAD that reminds me of last year's ipads because it practically is last year's ipads the the IPAD air twenty nineteen and the IPAD mini in two thousand nineteen had the same chip the IPAD air in this at the same Ram. It's basically that for less. There are some trade offs here that are tiny, but the IPAD air was more expensive. Now, that's now that's an all on the apple store. The IPAD mini is, but it's a tiny bump up in price. So you know three, hundred, twenty, nine dollars. This gets in at a much more affordable proposition, the the IPAD air that's coming. which is who knows when it probably in a couple of weeks is more expensive at starts at six hundred dollars. So it looks nicer. It looks like a less expensive pro. But I think when you're talking about almost doubling the price that. That really gets into a different territory for people. Yeah. Definitely. Anthony Twenty nine starting at three, twenty nine. It's obviously the most affordable option for someone looking for an IPAD. Ultimately for you who should be looking at this IPAD is primary option I. think if you just think of an I had something to have lying around check my email to look at shows to have one for your kid. This is that one if you don't care about step up bells and whistles, you don't want like a fancier toy.

He does you talked about our kids using this and a lot of kids obviously doing remote learning right now I've got a friend of mine who know he told me when he offered his kid a Mac, a choice between a Mac and ipad actually chose the IPAD. But isn't that really geared for remote learning for Education I think the older you get it's it's very nonsuited for it. You know we have a seven year old and eleven year old seven year old uses an ipad that we have around that. We use for remote learning it suitable. I think it's great. For eleven year old uses a chromebook and I think that's what you absolutely need for the types of. Work assignments you're doing your editing stuff, etc. Now ipads work with track pads, and so there's like on the entry level ipad they don't. It doesn't have this gets to accessories. Apple has beautiful but very expensive magic keyboard. That's like three hundred dollars. There are different accessories for this entry ipad. There's a Logitech Combo touch, which is still expensive one, hundred, fifty, dollar track pad keyboard I've been using with it. It's kind of like a surface with a kick stand. Type layout, but it's good for turning into a kind of a laptop but the point is that you can edit use a track pad. You'd be surprised at it can do more than you think, but some web apps some tools a google drive works well with it now but like some And you just don't know whether you get to that point where a problem especially with file storage file maintenance and chromebooks are weird too. But they're much more like web tool type based. Think the IPAD gets a little bit hotter with that. It, and then the I mean the big difference here as you said, it's identical lashes model. The big difference is the H. Wealth processor. How people differences that make you know I'm so used to seeing like. Standard. New I IPAD iphones. It doesn't feel particularly special, but I think it's necessary to get up to speed with. We're is going and we're going the processor was a couple of years old. It was feeling a little sluggish. They twelve is not like super zippy in comparison it's it's basically fine. It gets to the like very good fine point. So you know I could use an IPAD totally, but I think it's getting to the point where you might not be able to use it. So on the future and it gets to the point, I don't think you need to upgrade to this win -sarily. If you have an IPAD lying around, that's working fine you can probably keep using it.
Breaking down Apple Watch, iPad, Oculus Quest 2 and Facebook glasses
"There is a rush of new check parks that are coming out and at the center of all his madness is Scott Stein see that's editor at an amateur magician Scott. It's been a while since I've done magic been too busy. It has been a busy time. Why don't we start with apple since you've got your hands on repression on some of these out this morning let's start with the eighth Jan IPAD, which essentially it's the same device probably a little bit faster low smarter for three hundred, twenty, nine bucks. So what what is of? Note, the new Eighth Gen IPAD. Well, the one thing that's interesting is everyone's waiting seemingly for the IPAD air, which is the fancier looking wine that's coming in October, which apple does sometimes they stagger the releases and the good news is that the Eighth Gen pad is basically the twenty nineteen ipad air. The one that last year was the middle ipad had an eight twelve processor. Processor is in the eighth bad. Now, if you can keep track of all that so just means that you're getting a really good IPAD for pretty low price. Everything else about it is the same there's not much to save their. It uses the I Jin Apple ipad accessories. So uses the old pencil that sticks in the lightning port and it uses older keyboard cases not the keyboard such a little frustrating and has lightning instead of USB. But I mean. Whatever it's a very, very solid product just did my toes and using it But I think it really the fact that I was recommending the IPAD air a few months ago as the go-to one, the old one. Makes me really recommend this one now and we'll see how the IPAD air fancier one does. But that starts at six hundred dollars it's not cheap. So I think it'll be interesting to see whether that feels. Yeah. It was breakdown the IPAD air because that is you have it yet it doesn't come out until October. This is it runs on this eight, fourteen chip. I think there's some confusion about whether or not. This was actually faster than the IPAD pro is this. Pro. Ron Eight twelve Z and if you just looking from numbers, you're like well. Fourteen is better than twelve, right. So what are some context here? It's two digits higher. This sounds very promising, but then you've got a letter on the other one. It's totally confusing like apple has not really clarified it too much. Technically, it sounds like based on their their wording on this. The IPAD PRO is still the fastest ipad and the the thing about the X. chips is they had a lot more cores in graphics. So they're they're beefed up on the kind of the back end, and that could definitely make a difference The fourteen is a totally new chip like apple usually they put that on the next on and they most likely will. But now it's I on the IPAD air, and for all we know the air is GonNa come out at the same time the iphones we don't even know I mean, it's October released. So the IPAD air per-performance as a total unknown, it's supposed to be faster than the twelve, but that's not a surprise. It would not surprise me that some of the graphics video stuff might still be better on the. IPAD pro. But that one was not really a big performance bump this year over the twenty eighteen model. So Shrug so. Once price because you mentioned it's one hundred dollars more than last year's model. Does that change the calculation for that? That air like is this now is this too expensive six hundred dollars is not cheap and I think that it depends if you're thinking about getting an ipad pro and then you go oh, this one's a little less that sounds great. Sure it is but it is not cheap ipad scenes and you know really how much you GonNa Pylon to it the accessories start getting really expensive in any any of these things the more you start using them. You probably want the Pencil, which is a hundred dollars, hundred something dollars you probably WanNa keyboard case, the magic keyboard is. Basically. Three hundred dollars. You know it's it's you're pushing thousand dollars for the configuration with also with storage because the IPAD air starts with sixty four gigs of storage. Is. Borderline passable but it's not if you're going to be using this for any serious stuff and it's not upgradable. So and that's the same thing for the entry level IPAD three thousand nine is kind of a phantom price. That's a thirty two gig of storage. I would definitely say get the four, twenty, nine with one, twenty, eight. Because thirty two gigabytes you're going to run out of space like instantly. So I think that's just one of those things that gets you in the door and then suddenly you're paying more so I do think apple incrementally does price games all the time that these things I think that. It's going to seem nice for the air if you were considering getting a pro.

"The Microsoft surface. The dual screen foetal tease. Last year is finally here and we've got all the details on Roger Chang, and this is your daily charge. With me are veteran editors Scott Stein in the insurance who had a chance to get early look at the surface do thanks for joining the guys. Hey. So Scott first question is to you for listeners who not staying on top of all things. Microsoft, what is the surface joe? Well, the surface deal is not a windows device. It's an android device it's a phone and it's Microsoft's I own in quite a while. This is to screen phone that's not a folding phone, but it has two different screens can you can use side by side and the idea is to enter that space and build some way to multitask hundred device leading up to their dual screen windows things like neo coming in twenty twenty one yet, and then Ian, you a chance to talk with both jets talk with the town's Pineda the Microsoft Executive Charter devices? White he say about this device because I know we we referred to as a phone, but they're saying that it's it's not a phone. It's the very wishy washy about what this is. Talk a little bit about that. How Microsoft position this product. This is all a result of the reporting from last year when it came out a lot of the WHO got to kind of play with it realized that Microsoft was trying to avoid the word phone and it was kind of funny. But now we're at this point where the company is saying look we think that this is a new type of device that this is going to change the dynamic of how we look at how we use our phones and how they are going to go forward in that this is going to be completely new category with that means I don't know right does that mean I'm GonNa have a duo and my Phone and my tablet or am I gonNA like I'm starting to run out of pocket..

"Got It. And, you can move on to the next level other snap members you might need to do that for six months. And that's the beauty is level three. To level three is all right. Here's what you do. I want you to go and map it on one sheet of paper. Show that to me with what your steps on what you time is, how you gonNA, execute it I might be email, tell you about or whatever else, and then I'll have you action it. The minute you get people from level two to level three. That's when things get much easier. Yeah, I also by is the relationship is much stronger when you go to level two level three. Because, relatively dictating to you are working with you. So the question I have like you mentioned that it may take some people six months before they get that process. Have you seen I have anyway certainly leaders. Get frustrated by that and go maybe they just don't have the skill to get it maybe they're just never going to get it greg fever cases. Well, I, think, sometimes people just don't have the capability. You know so minded. Leaders. Going like we you do this process in your interview. and. I see that you've got Darius right and he does this project I'll take level three Oh actually just out that you tell me I'm going to map this out about how you actually execute it in one of your plan was while you're checking strategies what were. Now if they really know and have the cognitive ability. To capture, communicate that you know you have a great potential staff member. That such an. They'll just be fumbled. ME. Well if you done what you sent you done, you shouldn't have the conscious awareness to know what steps you took to achieve it. Now some people need that little hell and once you give at the goal. Okay. Well, the first thing we did this, we kind of this and then we so then you know that you've got somebody that kind of has that framework, but they've never really been taught how to capture very well. And I think I've never seen anybody use that technique in an interview and I think that would be so useful and so terrifying. Person being asked at. All in fact, I recommend outstanding on some of Canada's profiles and things like that last that. Now, I'll work with them. So it's not just you know. Four to between the eyes, but it will be, let me map this just understanding sets at stoke. How you do it, riots approach let them know that you're there to understand and not criticize and I. think that's the important thing delegation. It's about your to support you on the phone you challenge in stretch you but I'm not here to make you look stupid or intimidate you or actually just let you struggle. Yeah. Okay. Well, that's good. Yeah. You're not a mean guy. I, don't about me. I'm very big on being very direct and having people be uncomfortable. So uses before where snap of delegated mapped it they had done it and then the conversation you know if they haven't done it, a couple of times conversation is I'm GonNa ring the Napa, go I wanNA find out why you chose to not honor what you agreed to do, and I'm very specific on language. Yeah and that creates of stumper got the honest and I want him to be uncomfortable. By agreement that down now, if they been check in, they were let me know yet. Sorry this game up I'm not going to do it while if you let me know then we're all sign that's about honest communication but if they haven't on top of it on top of it on top of it, which is a really common pattern for people in the workforce and they really haven't started it. That's what we have issue. And I. Think. That's an important thing for leaders I I think I'll quite often readers go to extreme. So they're either really did toil attacks Knicks people have on unconscionable expectations, but but they give you a stretch or the opposite they go. So saw. That they actually don't lead their people. Today, we need leaders that have. Somewhere in the middle, they are challenging, we are supporting and they are stretchy repeal. That I like I think the leadership is about being uncomfortable. So of creating the opportunity for people to be uncomfortable so they can grow from it. That's a growth opportunity for sure. So. I WANNA finish with a big picture question. which. Is leadership out there in the zeitgeist which we're seeing it incredible challenges in the leadership space. Politically, around the world we've got. Really divided. As you know you. With family there you've probably been watching all the politics there. We've got brexit hanging in the balance we've got. We've got issues at home. We've just got the banking Royal Commission about to come out today they're going into lockdown this afternoon to announce it. And all the challenges with ethics there what do you see is the thread through that and what do we need to do as individual leaders in order to survive thrive through this kind chaos? Question. Big Question is well, it's pretty big. Couple of. One of them is the leader needs to stand strong. And this, this is what I mean quite often a lot of leaders are making decisions, knee jerk reactions based on service that. Not Looking deeper they're not looking at you know what's the real impact in Bay online department organization and what I mean by some? is their. Plan is to be there for two to three years anyways. So I could do whatever I want make good and of course, it's the house of cards Ma leave the next person going to have to be. You versus going how why create a sustainable culture that's going to grow in dry even be better when I'm gone. I. Think that's what we need a lot of leaders to start doing. So it's about their own approach himself and listening to that intervision that I talked about earlier. I think the critical thing is the ability to connect with people. What I find is consulting people are so busy nowadays. They're not taking time to connect and because they're not connecting I think this is what people get a little bit loss and I was just in state to just got back a week ago from spending about three and a half weeks in America and what I'm noticing up there is the only thing that people agree on this, you can't trust any politician doesn't it doesn't matter what party they're front. And there are so disillusioned and I think the reason why people don't feel like they're being connected to. And see it in the workplace you don't managers coming in they could have a real conversation with somebody on the same war is what am I doing Saturday sent an email? I think that's what we need more I. Think we need more leaders actually being more transparent about what's working and what isn't working. And I think they also need to be able to chat with the Workforce Day. What I'm finding is the younger generation are mentally so much more over stimulated than my generation for example, which means they are not mentally acted or. Yeah Right. I found a lot of baby boomer even some generation x leaders because they actually actually don't have the same cycle. They go well, start looking at your facebook not looking at this. person just bored because I've done everything. You've asked me to do yeah. Of course, seniors on you do it the way I wanted you to. Sign. Navigation process but being we've got a really connect with people and I think we need to develop and grow that. Roy and I talk about this in the book as well as Sony. Right, even got technology distraction. We've got email distractions leaders need to hack their approach they need to be fashionable and through their inbox responded things that are important deleting things that aren't Roy and there are a number of things they can do to save them time. So they do have time to the important things. Finding, a lot of leaders the number one excuse just don't have a good idea I know I shouldn't do it. And I even had won the. Follow you around this morning. You're telling me that you wouldn't have actually done some things that wasting time will you could've taken that time to check those people? And she just looked at me. thinking, about it that's what I need you to do. I need to get leaders off mental autopilots consciously aware of what they're doing in the. I like that. Yeah. It's like I followed you around this morning. Where you really doing what are your priorities are you connecting with people? Have you put your top three on your list to be executed on that? It is a big big concern for sir. Thank you so much for your time. You are fascinating. Love Your Energy I, love your story. It's a true Cleveland is to have you on the podcast I'm so grateful.

"But what he did is he link created a methodology called compression planning and it's actually based off of how? Walt. Disney works. So Disney. STORY ABOARD Like he's are cowards going to develop it the projects that you do it with movies as well. But by using visual cards that you put up it ships, it wrong a verbal in action to rebel individual interaction. Every idea is captured put on a car they all go up and it is a process where it's times. So you can't do you can't do it. So Fox session, and then what happens with those cards there's a boating or prioritization process. With the entire group gets the both based on what they see, and then the ones that get the is smoking reprioritize emerged to the next stage in the process. So it's kind of a creative way to take something that normally would take a senior executive group maybe two months to do I go well, I can do in three days. And that was. Pretty, amazing process. and. So what you end up with is a strategy plan like the end result the steps to get there that kind of thing. Correct. So twenty call the frank, words. About the same now, you might need to go back and talk to this division about how do we do this? With thicket of Working Phelan's of data here because we didn't have all the facts but usually not even two impressions binding by manager cat who catches on the ideas. were, our snow have about thirty five age document but has your entire framework of it. And, again, this is just another method what I call leadership pacs. How do you? That's in your book right? That particular methodology is in your beautiful book. Cities it's in the last section, which is about team hacks and one second but highly Haqiqi meetings and talk about the different types, and that's one of the kind of planning strategy meeting formulas methodologies talk about. By the way I love this book leadership Pacs I think is one of the most things that's come out. In the leadership space in a long time, recommended to a lot of my clients. The delegation framework we have in here is fantastic is so simple and straightforward, and it just eliminates all A. Delegation issues that people have you know the typical one is people struggle delegation because they don't trust their staff due to the right level. It's like well, how did you delegate I told them to do it. Now is it? What is he are the major mistakes that leaders make when it comes to? Let's say delegation. I think he comes back to how most leaders were taught. About when my first job was on a farm. Drop was called farm in the summer had captured common onion and things like that, and Yale on my first boss I, you know. So he was he was my first leader you know work setting. So the way that he treated me, of course, as I moved out I just mimic he did. And I think that's what happens. Leaders and if they're lucky enough to have rate later when they first come in a, they actually learned some really great things. But if they get the opposite of quite often they don't learn some of those strategies in delegations. Big. What what I find I would say most leaders manages to delegate. So, what they do, it usually happens as a process of added. So let's get promoted and you become a leader, right. So you're not a manager of a team of people and most people have the best intentions at heart and they go on our by people. so you decide you're going to delegate something is one of them. Right and the challenges they may not do it in the time you want it were they may not do it the way you want it. Right so you might give it another go and they still don't do it and usually the excuses. So busy with everything else on might play I just didn't get around to it. So that's what I call novels, delegations, highest level, and that's what most leaders stepping up. So what commonly happens is you go? I, don't WANNA risk. Leader of not getting the job done, you go level four all the way down to what I call level one. And level want as you stop delegating and you do it yourself. And this is a knee jerk reaction I think most leaders fall into right and they go. Well, if I didn't waste time trying to delegate I could've done it myself and saving this automatic anyways. Yet stolen to is one step above the level two is actually sitting down with him and having a conversation rhythm around a huge task and it starts what I call and ask it's not as hell it's not a you this this this and this it's us. It's that, I? Think we need to do I WANNA see do it for US action. Let's have a discussion about what the sets are you. Thank you need to say to accomplish this. That's. Right and the thing that I talked about in the book on Level Two delegation is mapping on a sheet of paper or an IPAD. Are Catch. Right, and this is a really important thing for a lot of managers. We had a lot of discussions we don't have uncaptured any of it they lead, and then they forget what three or four the steps were, which means it takes longer to remember it. So set to exactly about mapping it, discussing it and letting them go off and having a check in the with. So. That's a that's a real coaching approach because it'd be so much easier. Supposedly, if you decide okay, these are the steps is this is the order and go and do it. and. What I find is when when managers are level to what they're doing is they're actually teaching. Problem Solving and project management. Right and in what you can do is you can do that for a while when I find for manager once they're stat war and it depends on SAP member, some snap members you only have a couple of times..
Lego Super Mario is the break from reality we need
"Super Mario. Lego P- on paper. These two properties are perfect together, but as a real life. Super Mario make it worth your time? I'm ready Chang and this is your daily charge. With me, is senior editor at large and amateur magician Scott Stein Hey Scott Hey, Roger. Get deductive virtually. Intendo made some ways back in March when they tease this new set, and it seems like it's a match made in heaven, but in Fort Listeners. Can you break down? What Lego Super Mario actually looks like, and it's different from the standard Lego set sure so I've looked at Lega. ROADWORK sets before like lego boost, which are wines that have real electronic pieces in there in sensors and can be pretty complicated, but have a lot of rewards. This is kind of like a step down idea. If, you've also played games like super. Mario Maker for the switch. which where you make your own levels, this is a brick sat where you're building a couple of preset courses that are basically easy to construct lego bricks for ages about six or seven up, and there is a core lego Mario figure that runs on batteries that has a sensor on the bottom, and even a little screen and makes noises that can bob on coded bricks that do various things, so there's a start and an end, and there's a time challenge, and you basically have to collect as many coins before the time runs out by Bopping, doing these little physical or block bopping things, can you? Can you give me an example of what some of those noises are? What does Mariachi say sure I've actually got the Lego? Mario figure with me here so if I turn on, you can hear. He says Lego Mario time when he starts if you shake him. He's a little accelerometer. So he does things when you jump or were you tap on the table when he? When turn off as to see later. He sinks with your with your with your screen. Or android the idea there is that there's not you don't need to have the phone or tablet near by, but you do need it to set it up. It's got the instructions at so they connected toy. which is what Lego's robotics kits are like to the instructions? Are there and when you get scores? You can upload it to the APP to keep track of You know your creations, but you could also just once you set it up. Put that stuff away and just play with it with the figure and the pieces. Pieces like in your living room. What do you think Nintendo? lego opted to do something so different because this is obviously a lot more interactive than say your standard Harry Potter or star. Wars set right. Yeah, WE'LL LECCO saying. This is a four year collaboration along with some of the team at Nintendo that worked on Super Mario. Maker so was A. it was a pretty dedicated thing. Nintendo's made its own AMOEBA figures for years with a dabbled in that Nintendo has that partnership with universal for their for their theme park. There been other things, but I think for Lego Nintendo. You're right. It does make a lot of sense. It almost feels like something that could have happened already because Lego has done things that are kind of Nintendo like an antenna was done things like Lambeau that have folding cardboard that are kind of Lego like so. They feel very good together the one thing. I'm curious about is how much more the gaming can evolve what I noticed testing. This with my kids said it's very open ended. You have the instructions in Classic Lego style. They just Kinda. Let you figure out the rest in. There's not too much arching direction instruction and I would have liked a little more of that yet. Your video did feel very kind of free form. Like how did you play with it or more and more importantly? How did your kids play with it? Well, they love putting it together then we had the zoom with the head of Design Jonathan Beneath. which is this thing that Lego at? This remote zoom to basically just set up some timed a time challenge with of course we built, but you know you can kind of cheat. You know you basically just take all the coded pieces in just keep popping them over and over, and then hit the end piece, and then see what score you get and a lot of the scoring, because it's almost like a fitness tracker, you have to keep moving it and shaking. It is a little bit random. One of my kids got upset. That score wasn't as is. He thought it would be This is why I think you kind of have to just relax into it but I. I think it could be a little frustrating if you're trying to play like a board game, I feel like the APP should have some ideas Super Mario maker on on the switch has great ideas for creating design, and they have all these instructional sets, plus you could just play around or check out what other people made. This is lacking that by think intentionally, but just to let parents know that like I think it's toy. What's Nice as the pieces? All are modular in a sense, you kind of break them apart and not feel like you're deconstructing too much. There's like the square pieces that have all the parts on them. But you know it's to be kind of a thing you dabble with and I wonder how long kids are GonNa stay focused on it or they'll move onto the next thing, which is the case with all Lego like we have? We have tons of kits that have been turned into bricks lying in the corner. Well it. Is I mean. The the initial starter set really gets you beginning the end in a couple of pieces, and this is designed to be more modular I. Suppose add more pieces to it. Like how does that work? Yes, so the there are ten additional courses that Nintendo announced plus four like you could change the overalls on Mario and get extra powers. Is a cat sued in propeller suit? Those are cool like. Like agency courses take advantage of the catsuit that tried that I got to play with that much, but it was it was. It was very durable the prices range from like twenty dollars for an extra pack, two hundred dollars for the Buzzer Castle, which falls in line with Lego prices I think that we've seen for other kids that the starter pack sixty. They can add up though The question each each course has its own little special coated bricks that do extra things. Some of them are their own mini games like there's a product plant mine carts slide the basically just tilt back and forth, and try to keep the cart balanced and not hit the plans, but it's not very complicated some spin hope the character doesn't fall off, but. You Know I. Think the way the interact I would like to see a little more again. A little more guidance lego actually as a are based. Game set called hidden inside. That I've checked out. That is actually up. A little more game focused where there are actual like many games and challenges. You have to look for something that's hidden in augmented reality. You have to keep holding your phone out right right I. There are some like hidden treasure blocks that they're built into some of the sats. That's pretty interesting, but as far as I could see on the APP, you just Kinda put it together and then hey, have see what happens, so there are no a are elements to this setup right? No, okay. No deliberately meant to really focus on the bricks, and which I really appreciate and I like the fact that the Mario. Just stays connected interactive, and you don't have to stare at a phone screen I think that's great for kids I would love to have a peach character that could have the reading and other characters, so you could do multiplayer and I don't think it would hurt to have more formalized programming things than they are like my my eleven year old, who who's learning python like you know that that's he's ready to do. Block based programming with is in Lego. Boost and some of the more advanced kits. This doesn't have any of that, but I you could. Could, adapt some sort of a programming idea to this Lego just hasn't explored yet, and these are these all out now or did they do this launch after you mentioned that there are multiple sets coming, so, what's the cadence of release schedule? They all launch. August I and so this is a really I got an advance. Look in will go said. We're pre-production sats, so I think they're pretty much going to be what they are, but you know I think there
Google Stadia: Everything You Need to Know About the Streaming Game Revolution
"Google is finally I would say. It's huge huge. BECCA will all eventually stream video games onto any device. We want now. The search shine hoped this model will one day. Replace the traditional console but it's lodging to some really negative. Get a reviews Scott. You'd have extensive time with the service. What what did you find Lameta applying right now as I talked to you and it's serious multitasking? Running on a macbook air. And I I find that it works in the sense that it's streaming games. But what does that mean in terms of working because we've seen streaming games for the past decade on live I g FORCI now invidious service Yeah other ones that have come and gone ex. Cloud is in Beta right now Playstation now oh so sure games can stream but we've learned over the years that that depends on the quality of your connection and there can be some lag immi- usage with it. I was surprised at how good it looked Donna. TV with the chrome cast. Ultra a little less impressive when right now it's still needs to be together with this controller. Clunky I had to go scramble to find a USB USB SPEC- wire just to make this work to make it work on a laptop or a phone when it gets even stranger. You don't need the tether if you're using an xbox controller corrina controller with this. You can do that on the laptop and phone using other controller but you need the state controller to work with your TV totally confuse the one thing about consoles. Obviously obviously you got a pretty consistent experience right you blow it in the game. You play the game. This is different right there. Consistency or the experience will vary based on the connection speed. I'm using your office connection downplaying destiny or showing it and the thing is you can see some hiccups. In the way it's running it's a little bit of jitter especially for for online shooter could be really frustrated and for any game and the question is sure that functions but with stadia right now you have to buy in to this founders edition package if you you want to get into that. which has the chrome cast of the controller? You could just get the code for the you kind of skip that and eventually. Just connect online that free tier That they've been promising is twenty twenty so you don't need to buy all these pieces be Kinda do need to buy the pieces and you. There's a pro. Subscription Games are purchased separately. So I think that's also a disconnect a lot of people think this might be like net flix. Yeah we're you're subscribing and getting the game that was kind of when it was initially pitched that was kind of like the gut reaction action was like. Oh great like an all you can eat type plan or were you have to pay full price for these Games on top of the service right. Yes like redemption to destiny to those. Are the top games right now. There's a twenty two games I played about six of them I it's not the latest and greatest list of of all the top games. The other thing is that Google's Google's promising this whole wild world of youtube connections with hosts Rican dive into their instances where you can have massive massive like thousand player battle so royal type experiences. That stuff's not here yet. What we're looking at her just pretty standard games that the streaming over the cloud on their servers and looking sometimes really good and sometimes maybe not so I was more impressed with the streaming quality than I expected and the controller feels nice but it's another controller but if I just replicating what's out there I think what you're really doing is getting into a Beta right now? Yeah it feels like this. Is He'd definitely rules. Are Planning the flag on the ground you know for the broader future. But let's look at twenty twenty 'cause it's GonNa be huge for gaming right you've got beyond stadia. We've got the next xbox playstation Mike said Microsoft and Sony are already investing in their streaming services. And then we've got a post by IAN shirt today on Amazon potentially ramping up. Its own game service now. They've they've if ever got twitch at exactly the combination of twitch gaming service seems pretty potent. What do you think everything looks like? Yeah and their servers I mean Amazon's perfect primed to take on the back end system. Yeah and they could fold it into something like prime. I mean they could do. There's a lot of Amazon. Could do and it seems like a perfect match for them so I think right now youth players the questions. Where do you land for that? I also think you don't need to be going into the cloud you lose the ability to play off line and so while it's cool you can kind of play anywhere you do the carry the controller and find a place with a good Internet connection it resisted. The promise of being able to play this on. Your smartphone is fantastic like I play my games on the train. Ain't right in the Russian is terrible. That's why I actually prefer planning switch. It's all flying. I'm just playing like a dedicated to gaming system. I love to have it on my phone but the connection speeds just not going to cut it. Well let's we switch represents that proposition that was around from like the Invidia shield days of like this modular type of thing and then you've apple arcade in Google's holds a equivalent service. which is the idea of a subscription on the device download stuff and? It's kind of like the way that Netflix and other services work now to where he can download and play off line. If that came to something like a stadia then I think you may get the best of both worlds. But we're not at that point yet maybe we will be. and where will google really big. Is Everyone's beginning. Google flak I think justifiably in that a lot of the projects starting stop and so you don't know if this a sign that Google's committing into long-term even with Phil Harrison Jade Raymond and others who are in the gaming industry I think the server part is very important for Google. Yep How much it will resemble this in the coming coming years. We don't really know well again. Brian is GonNa kill me because I'm going to bring up five Jegan like this is a service that's seems tailor-made five g service. That's the other lodging works are canal right now but not really like. We're not going to get to a point where it's going to be mainstream for another two or three years but I think that's the timeframe where I see stadia actually kind of filling some of it's true. Promise that two or three year timeframe if you'll get like the decade of the next ten years but things move at that speed. The idea of streaming high-speed stuff like this and have it work is really exciting and that could apply even beyond games by. I think we are looking at like the very beginnings of that once again. And so I I like would google is exploring with stadia. But that's like if you're not buying into it right if you're if you're looking to buy something this does not seem like anything other than what a someone who is a technique and wants to play around with this idea. We get out of it. You can get these Games on other platforms and game consoles. Go on sale over the holidays so like the price. Differential is not that great. You got one hundred fifty dollars console now. So that's my charge. I'm Scott Stein. Thanks for joining. This
Apple redesigned the MacBook keyboard
"The Daily Chart Wednesday November thirteenth. I'm rugged chain and I'm Scott Stein. Today's talking back book keyboards. Apple's yet another another proud up. Its sleeve announcing a sixteen inch macbook pro the notebook which starts at twenty three ninety nine actually replaces the fifteen inch version and most notably it comes with a redesigned keyboard or using scissors switches. which apple is hoping? We'll address the criticism. It God for. It's more shallow butterflies which is Scott before we get down to the macbook pro sixteen. Let's breakdown this whole controversy. What why is everyone talking about these keyboards yet? I've got the macbook Pro Sixteen right here. apple introduced butterflies which is with the twelve inch Mac Book and and these keys which were flatter meant to compress that the the key travel to fit into thinner laptops and supposedly be more reliable and better had a totally different feel that. Turn people off but more than that. They've had a lot of failure probably just A lot of record complaints apple extended its replacement program Eh Phil Schiller admitted that they've been addressing these issues So not great at everything for repeated keys to getting stuck under them to try to change the membrane so so now what happens. Well the MAC book pro has a new keyboard. And it's a throwback keyboard. This is the this is the magic keyboard that was on Amax. Wry wit should the standalone keyboard keyboards. It's been around for a while and he's a good keyboard This has been incorporated or were adjusted in engineered into this Sixteen sixteen inch pro which I guess based on gleaning from from Schiller's comments this is for you know meant for what pros had requested and I think everyone's been requesting but the question of when this actually makes it in other laptops is unclear. It sounds like it will need extra engineering work And I'm not sure sure with that timeframe would be when I talked to Schiller. I mean He. He's made clear that right now. They sort of see it as parallel pads still working on making the butterfly keyboard which is on his third generation. Now better by the same time. Now that they've got this scissor version You know he sees it as a pro tear featuring now I really do hope it trickles down to some of the lower end matt books though yeah. I don't think it's a protein feature. I think it's an improved keyboard. I think this is This feels like my favorite one. It's a happy medium where it's it's still for those Xuejuan. A Lotta key travel. It's not as much as the older Mac. Books Right like the older older maqbool. Yep But Compared to got fifteen ensuring the sixteen inch using them side by side ride I work on the macbook air with a butterfly one if feels like it more satisfying and also. Apparently the keys can be removed. The key caps Kemira nice so maybe that means better repairability. We don't really know that. Yeah a little bit more space between the keys more space between the keys and the touch bars. Well Yup doc zone were space. There smells and physical escape key right. Which apple was very happy about that? You know the existence of an escape key. I've never seen everyone more excited about that. But it is back yet which is helpful. There's a more discreet touch power button. The touch bars smaller the touch bars mandatory mandatory. Yes which okay yeah. I'm not wild about bar. The other subtle thing the Arrow keys it's inverted T as opposed to the content of a boxy formation that the books apples and I can go back to feeling for it again feels a little more No look intuitive which is not the way I feel about touch bar. This promise touch part of me is that you can't feel

Apple plays it safe with iPhone 11 as it pushes new services like Apple TV Plus
"Good morning and welcome to CNN's daily charges Wednesday September eleventh. I'm an Fox Ruben. The stories okay so after months of rumors leaks and speculation apple revealed its new iphone eleven Tuesday Tuesday it starts at seven hundred dollars that has an upgraded camera and processor but beyond those headlines. There's really not much else to encourage customers to storm apple stores to buy hi it so joan. This event wasn't expected to offer much as far as new iphone invasions. Do you think those expectations were pretty accurate. Yeah Yeah Yeah I would agree on cast over. One of the things that is most innovative is a kind of artificial but it's like the price is the fact that it's a little bit cheaper than like what you would expect considering that you have been tapping those prices so high idea that like the mass availability availibility phone the ones being pegged as being the one that's for the general consumer isn't like a bazillion dollars. There are those pro phones but they're kind of being pitched as being really for or like perfect pro even say pro as opposed to what they were saying last year which were it was the iphone ten ass and the tennis. Max obviously the Max gives gives you some sort of indication that this is for more pro users but they took both of those in basically made them pro phones. I would assume that the expectation that everybody was buying the ten art the Ten our last year was priced at seven hundred fifty dollars this year the iphone eleven price seven hundred when was the last time apple actually lowered prices. They worry worry price. That's a great question by like fifty dollars. This time for their entry level saw the folly in what they were doing. I mean everybody all hands. That makers are having difficulty colty getting people to buy these phones. When there's not a lot of new things you can do with other than stick more powerful processor slam better cameras and give it a little bit better battery life. That's really all anyone can do and that's all that apple's doing here but at least they're not doing it and being also. We'll take another extra one hundred dollars this time around okay. Don't you think they were in doing that. In previous years. It didn't work how it's true. Zero aren't buying the IPHONE IPHONE iphone business has been declining they still make billions upon billions of dollars and the envy of the entire smartphone industry but at the same time it does appear to me if you read through the tea leaves here the writing on the wall whereas Apple realized they needed to restrain their prices with the pro and the pro Max this year the prices stayed the same. They stabilized from last year as well so yeah okay beyond the price. Let's talk about the features but you're right. You're right absolutely the price was really the most interesting part so night. Mode this kind kind of catch up to the Google Pixel. What did you think of that. They were really emphasizing magical it is I mean these things they all good except for the slopes are about to get this loan fees. What did you think of that. I find I like Sophie's Moreland talking poop Emoji from previous years so I could. I could dig a slow Fi. Wait it does doesn't it doesn't talk talk then come on. Give them some credit but no it totally does so what some of the new collars. I hate mentioning new callers honestly because like it's not an invasion but it's something that is appealing people like that. It was something that people really liked about that series when they had that out okay and the other element is with the pro phones longer battery life yeah once you get those you get the three cameras rather than to you so that you have not only the wide angle telephoto another reason why people well that are serious about shooting video and shooting photos would be maybe more interested in up selling themselves to that yeah so. Scott Stein are heroic phone. Reviewer viewer was at Apple's headquarters for this event. Let's check out some of his first impressions for the iphone Eleven. So what you're looking at here is the battery life gains the case extra durability claims for water and for glass string and it's the Camera Camera Camera Camera. How good is the camera on by the way that front facing camera can do slow Mo Selby's now and has a wider area to look at what we'll see night. Mode was also looks. Fantastic is not unique to in fact. It's also on the iphone eleven and that's the question is do you. Maybe want to get the IPHONE. Eleven starts at six hundred ninety nine include the same eight thirteen by chip. It's an aluminum design. Zayn still sports really good better life. It seems and it only has widened ultra white camera not the telephone. We're not getting okay okay so I also want to jump to apple TV plus so while the iphone eleven was kind of a snooze this time around we were kind of expecting that to happen apple TV plus the announcement there was that it was going to be coming out in November verse three five dollars a month and also if you buy new hardware from apple you get the first year free so joan. Is this a compelling offer when you compare it to calm the competitive said well. I mean there's nothing more compelling repelling than free and that's about how much apple should be charging for the service in the sense that they're they're. GonNa have nine things to watch when launches like okay to be fair to Apple. These do seem like high. SPEC shows like sure. I don't know how cool see is going to be but at the same time nobody does know apple's never made program before they've hired like smart people. They've cast really big stars and they're throwing a lot of money at it. which is you know some some of the ingredients that generally can help you get a really good show but they're not going to have a lot of them? They aren't going to be releasing them all at once. So if if you do want to watch the whole thing you're going to have to buy an apple product to get that free subscription pay the five dollars subscription or wait until they all come out and then have the seven day free trial that they're actually going to have for everybody right so I think it's pretty safe to say that there's been a lot of skepticism in the marketplace that Apple TV TV pluses really gonNa make significant waves right especially when there are a lot of competitors that are coming out to go up against prime video net flicks legs so i. I don't want to say the dead in the water or anything like that. Oh no I mean people are going to watch it for sure especially if they're giving it away for free the as a little bonus perk for all these new iphones people are buying an addition to you know during the holiday season when people buy Apple TV's for friends and family in themselves. There's going to be people will just get it for free and so of course they're. GonNa Watch it. I don't think it's going to be that any no. Maybe they'll have big hits. It's just difficult to see why people that aren't prompted by getting it for free and aren't super fans of one of those particular actors like Reese Witherspoon or Jennifer Aniston or Jason Momoa. It's hard to see how there's GonNa. That'd be a mass audience unless they really like find lightning in a bottle and get something that's ridiculously popular now. Buzzy never never count apple out. That's always an important thing to remember but at the same time yeah they do have quite a quite a tough road going ahead with this one for the daily jumped on Fox Ruben. I'm Joni is all. Thanks everybody for joining us.
Is the new MacBook Pro worth the upgrade? (The 3:59, Ep. 585)
"Tonight I'm about to Chiang. I'm Scott Stein Armed Joseph Kaminsky so apple's Mac pro Michael Air God in slow minor upgrades. I guess they got sort of a quiet upgrade early this week. We finally we have we have them in hand John Brennan Tests. I mean all these upgrades worth it where you thought if you have an older Mac book pro I can see you upgrading but it's not that significant. We'd want to shell out that kind of money right away <hes>. What did you find what their speed us the? The speed test it's definitely faster than previous because they switched from the dual core to the quad core. You definitely see a performance bump for me and my normal day to day. The dual core is just fine. I don't know what other people's uses are right I also I wish they'd put an S.. D. Card slot back in there as well yeah well. It's still it's still like to use how many are there. Yes it is to USB type C both on the same side right and for those of us who while using a Mac book pro now you got to carry these Donald's not everything will fit come upgrade to a higher capacity which ones get the four U._S. species. That's the fifteen inch as the fifteen inches. <music> man that's the that's the up sell Ya yeah seriously. Get your extra ports in there so otherwise this is essentially the same say Max acquired upgrade from apple in terms of hardware and they he added the true tone display to the MAC book. I can't tell the difference I'm sure it looks nice. I guess I guess we'd have to go into a room and just play with the lights and says come with the new upgraded keyboard but they're they're not had significantly different right from what I hear from the people in the lab with me. They're not big fans of the keyboard again with <hes> so moving onto the Nintendo switch light Scott. You actually had a chance to try one of the few folks she I chance to try it. Yes what did. You think so I got to play it for like twenty minutes used pretty much all the Nintendo portable systems and consoles. It feels a lot more like a three D. S. or a to D s type of product <hes>. It's a little smaller. It's not as big as a small as a playstation vita but it's it's a little more compact feels sturdier actually and so I like the feel of it five point five inch screen seem fine for all the games that I try try you know smash brothers and Super Mario Odyssey in Zelda for like a hot few minutes <hes> I love that. <unk> but you're giving up all these extras the switch part of it and that's the part where like as I use it at home I do use the T._v.. For stuff and that for one hundred dollars dropping in price that's great losing the T._v.. Out Capability losing the swap -able controllers in case wear and tear not wild about that but it does seem to be set up as a second device for the home. I know it's crazy hip but parents who played games note. I'm talking about Nintendo has hinted that there might be some way to deal with management across multiple device right. You talked with the Nintendo's browser which is actually his real name. Yes it is. It's hard to keep referring. I know what I mean. What else did you the deep hat thing you learned about? The D pad Yes so deep has a great what about on joy kinds and he wouldn't confirm any plans right now for. Or anything like that enjoy cons <hes> he talked about the the Horizontal Capability Android hines and that was versatile still I feel like you can use the d pad in horizontal mode and do all the stuff that he's talked about. Maybe that's something for the switch pro or some other thing down the line <hes> speaking of which again he wouldn't refer to anything involving a more advanced sequel to the switch reports have said that that's been delayed. Maybe that's next year for now. It looks like going into the rest of twenty nineteen just the light but what was really interesting his when he talked about games I said well what if you share between systems which is really annoying if I keep one docked. Could I just take the other on the road with me is that there's GonNa be some way of sharing experiences more to come on that which I really hope. Is that way to take digital libraries.
Facebook's Oculus Quest heralds VR's next generation
"At its annual f AAC developer's conference this week. Facebook showed off the Oculus quest a virtual reality headset that doesn't require a computer or smartphone. It's not the first standalone VR headset. But fig Phoenix Scott Stein. The quest is the best yet tracking is all in the headset, theoretically walk anywhere provided. You don't hit a Waller chair the Oculus with provides for very immersive virtual reality experiences. It'll cost three hundred ninety nine dollars goes on sale. A
"scott stein" Discussed on Daily Tech News Show
"These are available for preorder right now for three hundred ninety nine dollars shipping may twenty-first. Yeah. The pricing was really interesting because it seems like VR is usually huge investment. If you want a good experience you need to. Have like the ACC has these external sensors you've got to be able to set him up in your room. You have a lot of space. If you've got these cameras on the front of these devices, perhaps they would allow a smaller space experience revere, Scott Stein, explained the quest as pretty much like the Nintendo switch of VR. Yeah. I'm like that is really great analogy. Because it's you want something that doesn't require you to clip on your phone to a mask. You don't want to have to worry about separate parts. You wanna be able to work with your devices? But it's it's a it's a big proposition because I believe he said that if not automatic that everything that ran Oculus before will run on the go on the quest, and because of that, and that kinda can be rotating, hopefully, Facebook will announce yes, everything ran on any other outlets around this. But it's a three ninety nine. They're they're getting close to the point where it's like, oh that I'll give it a shot instead of going nuts. Yeah. Yeah. I think right now there's like fifty titles for the Oculus quest. So it's it's. Got a lot of things adapted. But I think it does require the games to be adapted now moving onto the rest of F eight Mark Zuckerberg came out and said, I believe the future is private. This is the next chapter for our services, and he's calling it f- be five the fifth version of Facebook. There have been five different reasons for Facebook.

Are you buying Apple's new AirPods with wireless charging case? (The 3:59, Ep. 537)
"Welcome to the fifty nine. And Roger Jane. I'm Alfred apple continues at streak of quietly announcing product news via press releases today, we got new airports. They are now compatible Siri which debatable that's improvement. You'll get twice talk time. Thanks to the chip. They started one hundred fifty nine dollars. Or if you want the wireless charging case starts at one ninety nine. I can't believe people are really paying this much for headphones. And here we are where air pods have essentially become a status symbol for a lot of people. They have extremely frustrating. I mean, look they were mocked early on you Scott Stein's face became a meme, and I was skeptical of first, but they've really taken off. I mean, you see them everywhere. I use wireless headphones. I just don't use air pods. It's our I don't get it. But they are extremely popular. I can see why people think they're so convenient the sinking for for air pods is really simple from what I've seen. And yeah, the these this next generations gonna make another boatload of money despite apple. And I can appreciate them. Like, you know, just releasing all of these announcements as opposed to the holding at all for one day. That's true. They are spraying this out there. Basically monopolizing the entire new cycle for the week with these little press releases. I am old. I guess I'm disappointed. I know of folks on my Twitter, much Witter followers are a little disappointed. We didn't get new colors. We didn't get water resistance or we didn't get noise cancellation which were things that were rumored. Also, they didn't get. You know, something that makes it much harder to fall out. Oh, yeah. Tips that I think that would would have been my number one request. I know. That's why I specifically don't use air pods. I much prefer in your headphones. Yeah. I have I have one's a loop to the back of my year. There Samsung ones, but they are come pain the charge. These seem a lot more convenient. Let's move on Google is also the news, thanks to its big GDP announcement stadia say Netflix like streaming game service. Basically is this going to kill off console? No. I think that of all the tech companies that are doing this. They will definitely has the infrastructure to have this kind of like network cloud gaming kind of service. But I look at what they were offering, and they don't have any games that I wanna play on it right now. And I don't think that you know, Nintendo or Sony are really gonna play ball with them. Well, if not Nintendo Sony though, right? It's these individual public. Yes. What do you think they'll play ball with Google? Yeah. And they have you know, they talk about assassin's creed odyssey, and we'll be soft being there. But that is not a game. I'm interested in playing very popular game. Yes. But I don't know. I I looked at it. I'm like, look, I'm less. You get really good exclusives on this. Right. Don't really see people flooding to this cool, though, our city up their own game studio, Google's got a lot of money. Throat developers. Yeah. It definitely looks cool. It looks like that's where the future of gaming is headed where consoles aren't really that important. You can just play on the cloud. But I'm interested to see how that will work when you're playing online multiplayer on the cloud as well. And you're using a rig that isn't that great also this. This is great, you know, once connective around and things like that. But if you live in a rural area doesn't have broadband internet, which is a lot of the population. Like, you're not going to be able to play on stadia. No, that's true. That's another reason why five G needs to be around. It's all about five still not going to rule area, fine, whatever one little touch. I like though, they added the code to the back of the controller that was kind of nice. Lastly or not last night. We're talking about the Phil recognition story in the package offered you the perils of shoplifting. And what could happen with facial recognition? Now's about it. And this is not an endorsement of shoplifting. But I found one facial recognition. Company that provides this technology to ban shoplifters. We're just anyone that the store doesn't like and they have a cloud service for it. So that if I was caught shoplifting from store a, for example, that would mean that that store can send to all their other branches. Hey, this guy is on our list, if the facial recognition spots me, I can't walk into the any of those stores, and they also provide a service where every one of their other customers they can opt to share that data with each other. So if store as partnered is also a customer and store be store. See, etc. Are also customers of this facial recognition vendor. I could be banned from all those stores, even though I've never walked into angels places. I mean, yeah, definitely a good illustration of potential. Potential problems. And there's no regulations in the US to prevent that from happening, right? Lastly, please check out our feature by Hyun reporter Derek Kerr who actually traveled across the Texas border to several border town to see what kinds of technologies are being -ployed as an alternative to that physical wall that President Trump wants fascinating story for more that chicks seen it. Roger Chang, I'm outfitting. Thanks for listening.
Let's look inside Microsoft's HoloLens 2 (The 3:59, Ep. 525)
"Three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Ruben. I'm Scott Stein. Today. We're going to talk all about mixed reality headsets, and the Microsoft's hollow lens to which Scott got to check out in Microsoft's headquarters in Washington starting off the new headset is three thousand five hundred dollars is expected to come out later this year. Yes, that is a lot and it's targeted toward business customers, not consumers. That's the thing. So in that regard. Why is it important for consumers to know about it? Well, I don't think it's important for consumers to know about it. I think it's important for readers who follow tech to know about it. I think exactly know that this is not something you're going to buy and Microsoft's not even trying to fit that role. But it is showing where all OB connected things are beginning to digitally merge. It sounds kind of vague. But basically, a is also just as much about things connecting and and going into the cloud. Microsoft is a believer in. That a are is essentially that reread sensors, and so in that sense. It's interesting we're going to start seeing a lot more on phones and Holland's two does work with Android, and I was going to down the line. What was it like using it? So I've used all the big air headsets, and it feels a lot more comfortable than Holland's. I think feels more comfortable than magically. I think its biggest differences are that has I tracking that feels very fast and responsive the first Holland's didn't have it magically as I tracking. That's not implemented in everything. Explain to me actually notices where you're looking and it can if you start flooding your is around you'll you'll be able to see cursor if included to show like looking at this button and not only that but it can also do authentication for windows. Hello logging. So which they Microsoft does the most secure way. So being able to get your experience on a headset using that for for for logging in for security, I laugh because secures a lot of questions about logging in. It's a question of where the data's being stored and in the long run what how much is being tracked about you. Because Microsoft also says that this consensus of motions through your is weird. But also as hand tracking. So you're not using a controller, and that feels nice, but it also doesn't give vibrational or haptic feedback. So okay. That's they let's step back for a second and answer the question. What do you do with it three thousand five hundred dollars? Like what were the demos? Like, what is the supposed to be used for Microsoft demos were all really technical in the sense that they were just showing like here's here is it is that it works or here. It is that here's I tracking. Or is what it's like to pick up. Something is what it's like to collaborate with three people and see somebody standing on virtual hill. Nothing. And there's one demo that was probably the most practical which was about how to work in a shop where there was a real ATV or a model of they set up this tool shop with real objects, and I was guided around with a new app called guides. Got to they pointed with three D aero pick up this wrench now come over. Here is like a three d LEGO experience. And now, I'm learning step-by-step how to do it or feels like turn by turn maps for the real world was easy to follow? Like felt like this was the most like like really applicable use of like teaching you how to do something to fix a machine. It is interesting to follow. I found it was easy except sometimes they didn't seem to exactly blind point. And my question was if you make essentially the wrong turn on a map if I pick up the wrong wrench how to correct? Yeah. And right now, it doesn't sound like there's a there's a clear plan in place for that. Or they're looking at that. But I think that's a really big workplace question. Also, how much you absorb the information because I kind of blank out unturned by turn, you know, how much do does it change what it means to be in a workplace where you're getting that door. You're actually getting training. That's interesting as to just going on autopilot and letting the machine tell you there's. This. Yeah. So that's that's a knowledge absorption question. Which again, Microsoft is sort of sounds like from talking them looking into. But there are no clear answers yet. So let's let's also bring magically into this conversation. Interesting about magically, and you've also got test that out that's really trying to focus on entertainment. Right. Whether it's gaming or experiences. It is this is totally different than what we're talking about. Where this is like like a business environment. Microsoft is connecting through all their cloud, apps and windows ten and really wants us to be connected and Azure to be useful device magically has no answers for that. And is trying to look really artists and creative experiences challenge. There is that still a two thousand plus headset doesn't work with glasses. And but I appreciate that. They're taking wild creative ideas. I think there's I think they are the Microsoft's the egos right now, and they're sort of between the two you gotta fuse magically their graphics might actually be better based on the chip inside. But. But I think it's a little clunky to put on although the Holland's to headset is larger and more expensive. So no one's really crack the answer to this yet. But you can see that the kind of working on parallel to different elements kinda parallel pads in some way. Plus, there's if you wanna get really deep in the weeds, the Qualcomm announce that there are these USB plug in air VR headsets that are glasses that will work with five G, Qualcomm phones. Good grief. Yes. So, you know, who's using that, but those could drop the price and with things he put on almost like headphones that the phone all the powering for if that really is the case, and maybe like what magically has with tethered pack that becomes your phone. The headset gets less expensive. Maybe it's more like that for something that everyday everyday person would use I saying quotes, but we have to see who would use this. And why that's exactly it. Microsoft is field workers people who can't who have their hands. Otherwise occupied also questioned the military contract. So all of those things and high end industrial us. All right. Let's we're we're going to have to call it for now. But really interesting stuff if you want to read more about these stories check us out on CNN. I'm Ben FOX ribbon Scott Stein. Thanks for listening.
Galaxy S10 and more: Our big Samsung Unpacked preview (The 3:59, Ep. 522)
"Tonight or Roger Chang. I'm Alfred Samsung unpacked is tomorrow. And it seems like we've got a handle on some of the big stories coming out. There's a lot of products to impact here. Jerry's leaks point how to at least a mainline galaxy ten phone gal ten plus this rumor budget phone or the galaxy S ten e were hearing and potentially a five G model, and we'll probably hear more about the the foldable phone which this morning. Evan blast put on Twitter saying it'll it'll likely be called the galaxy fold of it's unfortunate that the foldable phone is not the main event here. I really wish was an event for that. I I'm sure a lot of people are more buzzed about the foldable phone than they are about the ten itself considering all the leaks that have happened. Yeah. I think you make a great point. It's a little weird that, you know, the full phone will likely be jammed into the town, then because Samsung will obviously want you to focus on the ten and the phone that you can buy now. But I imagine a law folks will be more captivated by the foldable device. Yeah. I mean everyone's talking about foldable phones this year. This is like the big piece of gadget innovation that. Everyone's been look. For and to see it being tucked away in this kind of meant is kind of you know, discouraging for me. But at the same time, I mean, we'll we'll see how they present. And maybe it'll be there, you know, one more thing, maybe it'll be maybe it will get the spotlight that deserves. But you're right. It's a little weird. They're jamming everything in. We've got a rumors of wireless ear buds as well. There was a leak about their smart watches from from Friday. I mean, it's they've got a really big show. Coming up is deck's still thing decks thing. Okay. I mean, we don't know if they'll talk about it tomorrow, but the last several presentations they've decks has made an appearance. Yeah. I'm curious because I haven't seen any leaks for for decks or anything like that. But I am always apprised when they bring it back because I, hey, check out this thing that we're really really into that. No one uses but Scott Stein, big fan of dex. I love using it. I mean, I wished like more people use it seems cool, but you know, for for that too. To be somewhere like popular. I don't I don't really see people using it or like that. That's definitely more of a of a workplace type features. So it's it's not it's not quite as sexy as a foldable device are there any rumored prices on this budget phone yet. Like is it how is it? Like, the iphone ten are were the budget prices seventy. No, I mean, there are bunch of prices floating out. But it's a imagined somewhat in line with Nile a little less than the ten are Samson kinda likes to keep parody with Apple's pricing scheme. So I don't know we'll see and this five G models is like five G five G. Or is this like is five G LT. Yeah. No. I mean, you know, Qualcomm Samsung back in several made a big deal of having one of if not the first five g phones, I think Samson's going to do this, right? This is going to be five device. We've had talked with Verizon who who claims he's got the first Samsung five phone this. Is likely it. So if you just sort of parse the warning chances are this is a phone that will have will be exclusively of rising phone for a couple of weeks months. We don't know. And then it'll go to the other care and you've talked about five. Jeez. Capabilities a lot, you know, people using it to do like surgery VR yet something like that.

Smartphones will get weird and wild at MWC 2019 (The 3:59, Ep. 519)
"Nine I'm Roger Chang and Johnny salesman phones have been in rougher while but that might change at NBC or expecting a huge number flagship phones to make a big splash the more poorly. We're hoping to see more innovative designs. We're talking about foldable phones. I had that scoop on LG coming with a second screen attachment or a what did you call? I got an appendage and appended. Were rumored to have in all screen device. With a pop out camera afford, eight megapixel popout camera. No kid, theoretically will show a phone with five cameras on the back, and we've already we've talked about multiple cameras five is not enough. I may not be enough. It's going to be wild. I mean, what do you think? Are you your Europe jaded customer of phones? Right. Like what what are you? What are you hoping to see from from one of these crazy designs are products? I want to know what the appendage actually looks like that's still a mistrial. My guess is. It's sort of a cover case. I think he'll like flip over it'll become it'll become the cover and you get your full down. You'll be to screen, right? My guess. Yeah. But we're not sure yet. I mean, it's cool that these countries are all taking risks with these feel like half you writing really boring, really boring. So you have to have like entire backs of phones that are camera arrays or niches. That's what you want right. Like twenty. Just like the idea there. I mean, we're getting close to it. I mean, if you looked at that leaked image. Seem like there were five cameras. Bill looked like there were like six or seven different right light sensors, or whatever, and it just sort of get there. What are you excited to say? I mean, it's it's an obvious answer. But the full phones are the most exciting thing to me like the concept video we shall me. The TS we got from Samsung. I mean, this stuff looks pretty legit. And I mean, I want actually buy one, but just actually using a phone with a foldable displays that it's nice taste of the future. It is. It's a mind bending concept. Exactly mine Gotch next up. Check out our own Scott, Stein's commentary on the phone SE. And why apple desperately needs to have one in its lineup. Now ultimately into no-brainer right phone prices of all gone up guy thought extra is the budget phone which and how much is that the seven fifty believes, and that's the cheapest alternative really folks again, the excess or sorry the tennis. And those are in the thousand dollar range and apple has cheaper alternative. But it means usually going to last year's phone, right? I ate I don't seven. So they've got the whole lineup there. If you want to save money, but you know, an iphone SE to not just the cheaper phone, but so the small phone which we had Alford on 'cause he's a big advocate of the small for his small hand. Right. As to actually I could appreciate it by a big advocate of smaller price tags though. Yes. Sure. Yes. I just got an iphone SE for my father a refurbished one. Because I get you one. Like, I definitely would if if there was a new one in the market, I absolutely apple suffering because of not having that lower ends element to its product as you said, you can get the other phone. But like if you're getting a new phone, you don't wanna get the older phone, exactly. So lastly, Amazon. Quired Eero a maker a wifi mesh wifi wifi mesh vices, mash wife, mesh wifi devices. These little simple white pucks. What me take us through? What does this mean firms on? Well, a an obviously means that Don wants to control every possible aspect of your home already control. The smart speaker market with the echo. They're going hard on smart, televisions and fire. Tv lineup fire. Tv lineup other. You know, well, clocks microwave, so it makes a lot of sense to have a presence in this popular up until now independent maker of kind of next gen Y, wifi, right routers. I will say as someone who does suffer from wifi connectivity issues from home like site for like my office like it's all kind of crappy. Elsewhere like a mesh. I have looked into these mesh wifi. There's only the only Google really the only other viable competitor, Google out euro or. Now, Amazon, right. What does that what do you? What does that mean? Well, I think one of the things that some people are raising as possible red flag is that now we're at the point where two behemoths kind of control the market for this kind of router and the one that's entering Amazon people already have misgivings about how much Amazon knows about them. Whether or not whatever your take is on how much they're gleaning about your conversations from an echo. This does mean that they have potentially access to everything you look up on your home wifi networks. So the for a company that trades in data on you. That's an interesting thing to consider. Unfortunately, the only other option is Google the other company that trades and all your. For more coverage districts seen it. I'm Roger Chang, I'm Joanie salsa. Thanks for listening.

"Line like the Google pixel rita's. It's a more limited feature mode, though, then the pixel three it only works with people. And it's a little more white angle on the shot. But it actually it looks nice and the photos I've taken so far at the more good. They've been really good and the video it takes is the same as well. So I think for most people are gonna be really happy with the take in terms of who it makes sense to I guess who would upgrade to this phone. I'm using an iphone six that's four years old. My guess is. I'd see significant difference. But let's say someone bought an iphone eight last year, maybe a seven the year before what kind of differences they seeing going to this phone. That's a great question. I think what the price prices phones, I think you should upgrade less often. I don't think it's in every one or two year thing should hang on the four that use an iphone eight. I think you're fine. I think the advantages to the ten are are more. Incremental. If you have a plan that allows you to upgrade, it doesn't cost a lot. You may wanna look at it. But I think if you're coming from an earlier phone than that, you'll you'll love advantages some of those have to do with performance semester with camera quality also extra features that start to add up things like wireless charging which you might want or water resistant again before the iphone seven, they don't even have that the durability. These phones be getting a little better to we haven't done a drop test on the ten our ten s actually handled surprisingly well. So as far as durability of the glass pay to drop tests. But all those things are reasons you might want to look at it. I say iphone seven earlier are the ones you should take a look at it. Outstanding Scott we appreciate you coming on with us today. Thanks for the info on this. Of course. Thanks, Scott Stein from seen at talking about the iphone ten art. Hey, you know, I have a seven. So according to Scott, I should upgrade. I have a six and Chuck says has a six you guys. Really should. I mean, you're you're you're you're sitting on full what three years old for years old four years old? Yeah. I don't know. Chuck to you in a second battery. Yes. I think. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it was only twenty nine bucks. Right. I just keep getting free phones because I keep breaking the screen and every time they tell me they can't replace the screen, and they give me a new phone, so yeah. But it's still an old phone to six, but I'm on my third six now. Yeah. Which I wasn't convinced. Like, I just put a new battery in my seven. Plus, I am not upgrading. I I love have you have you held the new phone. Your wife has actually don't like you hate that whole swiping thing. It's called a touchscreen that every phone has. No, it's it's different. If you player out the ten it's pain to the software, the new way, you open it. Yeah. Hey, swipe up. No, she likes it. So I think it's probably just a matter of user error and getting used to something. I I I'm not ready. I just put a new battery in mind, so ongoing at least another year before. Least.

Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX ribbon. I'm Alfred and I'm Scott Stein. Scott just published his review of the new ipad. Pro it's got a new pencil a new design a new face ide-. But it's also got a new price tag. Yes. Does sting is expensive? It goes up to eighteen ninety nine that's for all the specs and all the trimmings starts at seven ninety nine for the eleven inch. I looked at the twelve point nine inch version and have been living with for a little less than a week. Do you like it is it a so I think what I'm especially interested in is. Is it a computer replacement is it gonna replace affairs here? Yeah. What is it? What is it? Up replace. No, I don't think it's a very good laptop replacement because if you're looking for track pad support or mouse support it doesn't have that still, and it doesn't have the sort of web experience at the browser experience that you might expect that's on a Chromebook even that that allows for deeper web tools, but if you don't care about that if you have already been using an ipad or no tonight that pros bring to the table last year similar idea in the software hardware super blazing fast. And I think the design of it is really nicely refined. But that's kind of an apple trend of this year. Larger screens more refined higher price. Yeah. Good grief. The other thing. That's like the most aptly thing about this is that they came out with a new pencil that doesn't work with the old ipad. Yeah. Only works with this one. Yeah. So you have to buy new pencil, and it's one hundred thirty dollars hundred thirty dollars, which is ally. Now, the thing is if you've never gotten one of these before, and you get this now, the pencil charges and works, much, more seamlessly. It's great to have that. It's kind of like air pods. Nice instant available for you. Much better than that stabbing out the back, but to have to buy a whole new end, and I'd have any adapter for the old one is crazy. Okay. But okay, we're kind of focusing on some of the less, enjoyable parts of this. Did you like using it was it funded, you know, kind of draw with with the pencil where there are a lot of nice improvements. When when you're using it for what an ipad is for like all those are graphics everyday like a web razzing even writing I really like it. And I've traveled with an ipad a lot too is. I think to take notes with or just us on the train and for the amount of apps it has and for all that stuff. But what I don't like is when you have to start editing rave to start doing anything that gets more mission critical, which is the idea of pro that part. You can't take it with you. I don't think and file an entire story without a lot of headaches. So that part I don't like, but I did like the speed of it. I like the design refinement, there's more screen and less is. I wish you didn't cost more. Yeah. Yeah. No kidding. So we've also got. Even more election scams. We've got Alfred here to talk about them this one targeting vote for one one dot org. Tells you vote for one dot org is a voter information website, you can find out where to register to vote. What candidates you in your district stand for and what's on the ballot? Generally, John Oliver had promoted on a show last week tonight on October twenty eighth and I got a two thousand percent spike in traffic after that little promo and it two days after he promoted scammers set up a website called vote for one one dot com. Which is a common mistake that people would make most people are going dot com websites and this website, basically ran a online technical support scam. Which is if you ever go on a website. And it tells you like, hey, you've been infected with a virus? Please call this number to get it removed. And then you know, they essentially put a virus on your computer. If you do call that number, and then you acid you. They ask you to pay them to get rid of it was very common scheme. But now, they're using you know, curiosity around the mid term. Elections to basically use it as a watering hole type of attack where they know a lot of people are going to be looking for these election updates and things like that. And they're using that to their advantage. With a fake website. Do do we know if there are now more or less midterm related hacks or scams going on nowadays than maybe four years ago? I mean, it's unclear because anytime somebody gets hacked, it's not like there's somebody going out there say, hey, we did this or anything like that. But we do know that there have been. They're more vigilant about it. And there are a lot of examples about this so Microsoft in August talked about how they had gone rid of these websites that were basically doing the same thing. But it might have been for a lot more malicious purposes because so while the fake vote for on dot com website was more for financial gains the Russian websites that Microsoft had taken out more specifically like politically motivated.

That's something that Scott Stein who reviews the iphone for us as is written a lot about just getting the same thing. It stands to be a very interesting phone partially because it is actually the screen is larger, right tennis, right? But she pronounces like tennis, Tennessee or excess. Yeah. Interesting, and and we've been doing, we've been, I could talk about this for a while, but the other interesting thing about the new phones and the only thing at this moment that would drive me to get the tennis is that we did the drop tests on it that we do all the tooth and. We've not break kill. We seriously, we tried hard. We've broken it every time in the past. We could not break it, and I looked at that exact phone after she did that test held it in my hand, it was barely scratched. That's pretty impressive. And that if I have any phone without a case, it would cause me to buy that phone. I try to do. Iphones, but then they kicked me out of the apple store. Lindsay and her fine work seeing dot com. She's editor in chief. She's a big shot there. Thank you, Lindsey, great to have you great to be here. Always fun at father. Robert ballots here who was in town for a couple of conferences.
