We've now got long range model hostelries as well i we've also got enormous chiming in a sort of last comments before q. To closes out news from hong kong. That's pretty interesting. An update on possible. Ev us federal tax credits. Some news on tussle energy Ruling on in ohio. On volkswagen and some news from canada on electric vehicles. So we'll start off with the stock. You're today tesla. Finishing down fifteen hundreds of a percent sixteen hundred zero percent to you. Six hundred seventy nine dollars seventy cents compared to the nasdaq pretty much right in line with where tesla was relatively quiet day. The nasdaq finishing down around that level.

Id like to become a professional complaint coach

"United airlines canceled a flight. I was on then tried to revoke me on an itinerary that would require a four eight am trip to the airport and an extra connection. I escalated the complaint. After talking to a manager i got it down to one connection at a reasonable time and a voucher for two hundred dollars by hadn't spoken up. I would have been out of luck. It wasn't that hard but lots of people don't know what to say or how to be what i call politely assertive. I'd like to brand myself as the complaint coach and help people get what they deserve from large companies especially when something goes wrong. Do you have any tips or advice. Thanks politely assertive. I love that hitting that in a nutshell is great takeaway less than for somebody. Who's like how do i properly complain when something goes wrong on my next flight or something. You are politely assertive. So bonus lesson there. Thank you for that tom. Now as for the business potential. I totally agree as mentioned that people do not know how to properly complain especially to big companies. They tend to get very emotional and point out lots and lots of different issues without really focusing on. What is the core issue. Where did this company let me down. And also what seems like a fair remedy for that experience so these big retail companies beat ac- companies. They have entire departments focused on recovery or customer experience or the art of making good when something goes wrong. So how can tom turn this into a service. I think it needs to be really simple. It can't be a twenty four module. Six class people need to get results quickly. Also as a business model you know people who work as negotiators trying to lower the cost of large bills like in the medical world. But that's a bit different because helping people get two hundred dollar vouchers on flights. I mean that's awesome. That's valuable but if you earn a on that which is how that works in the world of medical bill negotiation. It's kind of a lot of work for a relatively small amount of money. Like you're saving somebody two hundred dollars but you're going to get you know five to ten percent of that probably not a great business model so i like the idea of one of these. Two approaches. tom as the complaint coach sells a quick and dirty informational product. That probably sells for like thirty nine dollars. Thirty nine to seventy nine dollars somewhere in that range and it's just like here's what you need to know to get what you want. The second option would be a half hour consultation. In which tom guarantees his service will have positive results so somebody's having a difficult situation he's like i'm going to talk you through. I'll tell you exactly what to say. I'll tell you who to ask for how to respond when they say certain things and so on and because this is a consultation has to cost more so this is something like one hundred dollars to two hundred and twenty

Here's a first look at Apple's $549 AirPods Max headphones

"So one of the other things on on the airpods mex so talking about its battery life. Apples claiming twenty hour battery life with these headphones. You can charge it with a five watt iphone brick. It will run for ninety minutes after just five minutes of charging and you can get the full battery life in about two hours on a five watt. But you can get a little bit faster with larger power bricks fast charging because it's not usb c the unity jozy the uscca to lightning cable the big brick. You don't get fast charging again. I kind of wish they did use c. As the connection on these devices and i also i don't know i almost wish there was an on off button because here's what you have to do. So these airpods. Max come with a case but quote unquote in the biggest air quotes possible case because basically comes they little sleeve that you slide the airpods max into and their little sleeve has a flap that closes in when they're in that case it tells the airpods max to enter the low power mode and that's how it will stay on standby for a long time if you don't put it. In that case. mk hd was saying. It takes up to two hours for them to go to sleep on their own. Not being used so you really kind of have to put it back in that little sleeve to make sure that they. The battery holds its charge. You know if you're going to throw it in a bag or whatever. So i find that strange and i also find that case. It's not a case like it's not really protective about anything there's openings everywhere they want you to carry it by the handle of like the head strap of the headphones like that is the handle. When they're in this little sleeve. And i mean let's be honest. It looks a little bit like an undergarment. I won't go into too many details about that but it just feels a little strange. I'm concerned about the price k. If it's worth the to it's worth a to if it isn't it isn't it isn't to me. It seems like you might be here. That's great buzz. While i hope they have bigger batteries in other airpods. Stir presumably there's still commit degrade as well so come a point when you're five hundred and fifty dollar had funds need tap. Their batteries replaced right. How long will that be. How degrade when we stop being twenty hours and i did see. I think the battery replacement will cost like seventy nine dollars so better than a new pair for sure. Shut

"Today. We're just gonna talk about streaming players because they are really cheap during the holidays you got streaming players from roku amazon google and apple. How are they all different. What's new for two thousand and twenty. Let's talk about it on. Today's episode of talking tech amazon has four models of the fire. Tv stick now. What you need to know is one of them. Only streams in lower ten eighty p resolution and has a remote that doesn't adjust the volume on your set. That would be cheap one. The one that's selling for right now around eighteen dollars you'll end up spending from forty to fifty dollars for the four k edition Which i would recommend. Because why do you need a unit. That's only gonna play in lower resolution now moving over to the folks that roku they've got seven models ranging from thirty dollars to one hundred dollars and the cheap ones again lower ten eighty p resolution a remote without the bells and whistles of the most expensive model which is a hundred dollars and dat one streams and four k and w vision has a great remote and an ethernet jack for a direct broadband connection to thwart buffering google chromecast. There's a new addition out this year that sells for fifty dollars. It hasn't been discounted for the holidays yet. And what's different is the new chromecast has google. Td a new name for google streaming offerings which basically offers recommendations on what to watch based on your google searches and youtube views with the older chromecast. You needed to find the programming on your phone in beaming to the tv whereas the new chromecast you just have a menu and a remote control so it's way easier the apple streaming is way more expensive one hundred and forty nine dollars which doesn't streaming four k where the four k edition which is one hundred seventy nine dollars. There's pretty much nothing you're going to be able to do on this apple tv. Four k for one hundred seventy nine dollars that you couldn't do with the hundred dollar roku

Cyber Monday deals abound

"The clark deals crew has been working literally around the clock for a much longer period than historically. The clark deals team would work with most of the effort prior years being black friday week through cyber monday but this year not like prior years. The sales spread out the entire month of november bleeding into all the way into this. Friday is cyber monday for most retailers has become cyber week and it can be overwhelming. It's obviously overwhelming for our deals. Team can be overwhelming for you as a consumer with every E mail message. You get or text you might get from retailer you've done business with in the past or do currently screaming. How great their deals are so it really requires action not reaction on your part to plan out number one that you don't overspend and number two that you are getting real deals not non deals and so i know that if you are among the more than one third people somewhere roughly a little more than a third whom look at shopping during the month of december for christmas as more chore than joy. This is even harder for you to think through this way. But i'm more concerned about people who get really excited by deal deal and spend money. That is really more than your wallet is designed for and so that's why back to basics. I want you to think about coming up with a budget. Not too late even if you've already been clicking and buying black friday week and now in cyber week you're like oh look at this. Do you look at that one. Go ahead and assess what you've already spent and how that fits into what you really can't afford to spend through this. Christmas selling cycle second win. They're things you're interested in. Just take the time to write down the offers for example like Historically have been the top draws in the friday and now cyber week deals and they get really really confusing so no this the real deals come with. Tv's and various forms of electroncs that our current technology not state of the art. The very best doorbuster kind of deals are those that are off brands or More minor brands an example Sam's club has a hot item today where they're selling a seventy five inch. Tv four k whole bit from philips philips is not a premiere brand in the united states anymore and it's five hundred and ninety nine dollars. There was a cheaper roku. Tv seventy five inch with best. Buy for four nine thousand nine that when sold out five nine thousand nine for seventy five inch. tv really really great. But it's Yes you'd call that a second tier brand and then when you look at the first tier brands samsung. Lg sony the tv's. That are the best deals for black friday. Cyber monday in this week of cyber week our. Tv's that may be Last season's models or models that they had oversupply of or they made specifically as value additions for retailers. To sell this week and there are great. Great great deals especially when you step down to the second tier or third tier brands. Listen this when if you want a jain normal. Tv best buy has an eighty five inch imagine eighty five inch tv. A high sense. Four k nine hundred ninety nine dollars. I mean that's ridiculous and they have an l g eighty six inch for fourteen forty nine so there are a variety of really really great deals on. Tv's and for people looking at more reasonable sizes like looking from thirty two inch. Tv's that right now are seventy nine dollars and up Sixty five inch. Tv's cheap is two hundred fifty dollars and there are great. Great deals available and avoid with electronic spying state-of-the-art because today's state of the art is much more money than current technology and we'll be current six months from now or whatever at a fraction of the price that state of the art is right now

How to stage a Zoom Thanksgiving

"Everyone jefferson graham. Here talking tech. If you're like me you're probably going to be doing a virtual thanksgiving Travel plans or a little odd right now during this kobe era. And we're gonna be spending even more time looking at a video screen instead of seeing people in person but that's okay. I'm here to make it a little easier for you in a talk about how to set up your tech what you'll need. Think about zoom. Think about laptops phones tablets. Think about tv. Think about a dedicated video display device. Which is my number one recommendation love or hate facebook but you can't get over the fact that the portal is hands down the best video calling device on the market and nowhere. Would it be more useful than the thanksgiving table. It's a dedicated unit. You do nothing but video chat on it and it's got the best camera it follows you around So that you could have like four people at the table as each person speaks to camera would then zoom in on that person. It's pretty amazing technology. The a portal. Get the small one. Get the eight inch. Cost one hundred and twenty nine dollars. I checked on the facebook website today. They have plenty of units. And if you order now you could have it by this weekend. The tenants version one hundred. Seventy nine dollars. The fifteen inch is two hundred and seventy nine in the great thing about the portal. It works with either facebook messenger or zoom which happens to be the world's most popular video meeting service. Google has its own video. Display unit called the nest hub. Max similar camera. It works with google meet which is not as popular as zoom and amazon's echo show can either connect other echo show devices or any phone or tablet with alexa app. So you guys could see your guests on their phones. Ba fine tablets. I think those are good. Nice big screens. Just make sure to get something to hold a tablet stand. Because you don't wanna put greasy hands all over that shiny ipad ditto for the smartphone. Same tablet stands should be able to hold your smartphone in place. If you don't wanna get the tablets stand. Get inexpensive table top tripod for twenty dollars or so. The laptop is probably what most people are going to be using Stick it at the head of the table and just sort of moving around as the dinner continues. Most important tip is to keep an eye level because usually the webcam is looking up your nose. Making your double chin. Looked like a quadruple chin. Put your device atop a bunch of books and remember to look at the camera not at the screen. You're you're making eye contact with the camera. Otherwise you're looking down. Hey what about using the tv. I've got a tip for you. They're apple has really cool feature called airplay. Which lets you beam images video and the like from iphones ipads and mac computers to other devices. If you can connect your apple tv setup box to your tv via airplay you can bring zoom to the really big screen. Additionally several tv manufacturers also have new sets that work with airplay as well including samsung. Lg sony video. Finally don't forget about the lighting if you're gonna go really dark and light candles. Nobody's going to be able to see so turn on the lights. Get out some extra lamps in have fun meeting online.

New Alexa products may be shown off soon

"Heard apple we heard from Samsung. Now it's Amazon's turn Amazon stymied to have their event on Thursday September twenty four announcing a whole new slate of Alexa products I'm here with consider he runs the voice dot ai blog and weird and have some fun talking about what we might see. Now last year we had glasses. We had the ear buds. We had the fancy speaker that sounded better than any Alexa. Speaker ever sounded the studio. What do you think? What do you think we could possibly see this year. I think it's going to be light on hardware. Actually I. THINK WE'RE GONNA see a lot more applications and services this year it just seems like that's the way they're headed right now we're starting to see them call their portfolio a little bit I do expect to see an upgraded. Amazon Echo for example, because we're a couple years since that last updated So we might see that we might see an echo plus update and we could potentially see another round of updates to the smart displays because they've been updating those each year. but for the most part I, think the stories are GONNA be around. Is and features. Okay. Would you say the New Echo? That's the entry level basic of seventy, nine dollar. Speaker that started it all. That is the one and eight. When it started at all I think it was one, hundred, eighty, nine dollars when it first launched might have been one, hundred, ninety nine then they brought it down. So yeah, it should be somewhere between seventy nine and ninety nine dollars. It's not the echo dot, which is the one that people will see for twenty to thirty dollars when it's on sale but that is really the flagship of the of the portfolio and it's due for an upgrade. What could they do what they do to make it interesting To make it interesting. I'm not sure. I mean the the most recent one was actually quite good They could increase the audio quality a little bit more but then it's GonNa be in competition with Echo Studio, which was a device i. know you like a great deal last year I expect them to potentially have some do safeguards at a hardware level around privacy that would be something that could do with. Better Processing Power they might announce something with performance and speed. In fact, most likely they will I'm not sure that that will be specific to the device though probably more likely will be impact based on the cloud processing and ultimately the natural language understanding layer of the Alexa Service. Now, what I think they need to do is really put a lot of effort onto video and the echo show which. You know as we've moved to everything's online, every trade shows online every classes online all of our work is online. That Lil unit has been left out of the equation. We should just be saying Hey Alexa start my meeting and they did announced that there can be working with zoom on one of the units but I think they really need to put a lot of effort into putting video I what what's your thoughts? Yeah I I suspect that we're to see some services along those lines although you have to look at what Amazon has to bring to the table. So Zoom is a nice integration. It's it is available now and echo show not as tight is the integration as they have for the conference room they already had many people don't know this already had integration with zoom for conference room setting. That was Alexa for business, and what they're doing now is available for consumers because that's a new swing on the way things have changed recently, people need that at home more I'm interested to see what they do with the television. So I think that that's likely to be a more fruitful area for them to explore the use of video and the integration with Alexa. So bring zoom and Google or whatever whatever program into the into the fire TV edition. Yes. Okay, well, that sounds like fun. I have one of those in my living room and it sure would be a really convenient. Well if you think about it too like people are using these devices now. To talk to loved ones right and so we have an echo show and I, and I gave one to my parents first edition when it came out of him to my my brothers. So we can. We can all get together and we can have these one one calls with each other. They're Nice. But the ECHO show is like a small screen even the larger ones are small compared to the television and in it's not necessarily in a place where it's easy for everyone to sit around the television. Is actually much better setup for that. If you'RE GONNA do family to family calling and I. Hope that will allow you to be able to do a multi-party calling for that as well. So zoom allows multi-party calling very useful feature for people during the pandemic they WANNA get get together with people. They can't see echo show is one to one right now, and so if they could do multi-party off of that, that would be a big step up if they can do it through the TV even better.

Apple reveals lower cost watch and updated iPad

"Maybe with the event's title, we should have known it would-be. Short. Tuesday's time flies event flew past at just over one hour, four pieces of hardware, basically, as well as new services and the services bundle we're focusing on hardware today. Surprising, absolutely, no one apple on Tuesday announced apple. Watch series sex running through the hardware. The S six system and package packs a new dual core processor based on the eighth thirteen bionic an iphone eleven it runs twenty percent faster than series five apps launch twenty percent faster. It's the first. Apple. Watch to include the you one ship, an ultra wideband antennas. The series six always on retina display is up to two point five times brighter outdoors than Apple Watch series five. Both the same all day eighteen hour battery life is before and can hit full charge in one point five hours. To features focused on during the devices introduction where the always on all tinder and the blood oxygen sensor. Not sure why always on is important for an intimidator unless you're worried about rock climbing in your sleep Apple says the always on ultimate provides real time elevation all day long by using a new more power efficient, barometric, ultimate her along with GPS and nearby Wi fi networks. This feature allows for the detection of small. Changes above ground level up and down to the measurement of one foot. And can be shown as a new watch face complication or workout metric. More life and death or the blood oxygen sensor and is associated APP. Apple says, series six measures the oxygen saturation of the users blood. So they can better understand their overall fitness and wellness. Oxygen saturation or S P o two represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body and indicates how well this oxygenated blood is being delivered throughout the body. And how it works is really cool according to Apple's presentation. The sensors are basically checking the color of the blood as it passes by. That color indicates how oxygenated the blood is, which is free again. Amazing. Speaking of colors for the to apple watches I've owned I've chosen brushed aluminum. It's easy to match with just about anything. But if you have a signature color or don't care about matching or. Planned to have plenty of apple watches on hand to put on your wrist Apple Watch now comes in the couple of colorful colors. For. The first time says apple a new blue color. Silver Space Grey and gold aluminum case options along with the product Red Apple. Watch. With exclusive matching, bright red bands stainless steel models are now available and graphite and an updated classic Yellow Gold Color Apple. Watch edition is available in natural and space black titanium. Series six also says Sayonara to ceramic while apple didn't mention it during the event. A piece from macrumors says, that is no more. As is the way the arrival of new apple watches also meant the arrival of new bands. This time though whole new bands, not just new colors. Sport Band makes way for so loop. No clasp. No buckle. Solo Lupus a continuous end stretchable ban design that says comes into materials, soft silicone and braided yarn. Nine sizes for those. Apples supposed to have a size guide on its site. Checking Apple side it looks like Sport Band is just making room not seeding the field. Both sport? Band and Solo loop available to order as of now, there's also said to be a first of its kind leather link that wraps around the rest held in place with flexible molded magnets. Nikewatch gets everything we've talked about already plus a new Nike face and new colors for the Nike Sport Band and Nike Sport Loop. Same goes for Apple Watch air MAS- as far as improvements the hardware it's stainless steel cases come and silver or space black paired with single or Dubna, tour styles and an assortment of vibrant new colors. Now about the only thing predictions got wrong for Apple Watch as E was its name. leakers had thought that that was shorthand that it'd be called something simple like apple. Watch. Apple Watch S E is the budget chronometers name. Well mid range chronometer Apple Watch series three is the true budget model still out there selling for one hundred, ninety, nine bucks. An apples press release apple CEO Jeff Williams was quoted as saying Apple Watch S E combines elements of the series six design with the most essential features of Apple Watch, all at a more affordable price. No Blood Oxygen Sensor and no, always on display. It does sport the always on all temperature though because apple is taking this sleep climbing thing seriously. Looking at the hardware sports the same size displays as the Apple Watch series five. The S., five system and package and dual core processor deliver performance that's up to two times faster than the Apple Watch series three. The S. E. Packs the fives haptic feedback for the digital crown, and that speaks and here's what the latest speaker and microphone in the watch line. Apple says, watch as e features the same accelerometer gyroscope. altimeter as Apple Watch series six and with the latest motion centers and microphone. It offers robust health and safety capabilities including fall detection emergency, SOS, International Emergency, calling, and the noise. APP. Now, if you decide, the six time is the charm that you're finally ready to buy Apple Watch. The one you buy probably won't have a charger in the box Lisa Jackson vp of environment policy and social initiatives at apple appeared during Tuesday's event extolling the environmental virtues of apples timekeeper. Sometimes. Jackson said it's not what we make but what we don't make that counts. That he's from seeing that says that when she said that apple won't be including USB adapters with this week's watches. As putting them free in the box consumes resources and adds to apple's carbon footprint. Interestingly, people who can afford to buy a charger without giving it a thought. Won't have to do so. A separate piece on chargers Napa Watch from apple insiders as apple, watch, addition, and Apple Watch. Will include a five watt power adopter. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman Kinda cried foul over that on twitter. Quoting his tweet looks like the Apple Watch titanium and Armez model still have the power adapter. So the more expensive versions keep it. makes it seem like it's less of an environmental thing and more cost driven? I can get thinking that as an immediate reaction. Here's the thing though you gotta figure apple sells at a minimum hundreds of entry level apple watches for every single edition or. Sold. Probably thousands. So even though it looks like catering to the wealthy and yeah, there may be a bit of that. Even though it looks like catering to the wealthy dropping chargers, millions of people probably don't need. Might make an environmental difference. No I saw way more than one piece saying not including chargers with Apple Watch is just the beginning. While, it has been rumored that the next round of iphones will also arrived without a charger. Apple doesn't seem to a pulled the chargers from the ipads that are also coming out this week. We'll get to those in a bit. Want to get an Apple Watch for your kid but not give them an iphone worried that mom or dad may have a slip and fall or ended up seriously directionally challenged apple has a plan to watch the whole family. Selling points as far as apple's concerned with family setup, you can stay connected with family members without an iphone from making and receiving phone and facetime audio calls to sending and receiving messages and emails, and even connecting with other Apple Watch wearers over walkie talkie. Parents have the ability to approve all contacts. So kids can safely use the communication features of Apple Watch, according to the company. The activity rings experience has been optimized for kids according to Apple. Emergency SOS is being pushes the benefit though. Apple Watch already does that.

Thanks to the Pandemic, Apple’s Big Event Was Just … an Event

"Been covering these sorts of apple events in product reveals for a while now yes. Seventy five years. Have the one compare it was definitely very different though in June we had apples developer's conference and it was pretty similar to that. So in the sense of we're getting used to this, but it's definitely different than me flying out to Cupertino waiting in line to get into a big amphitheater in a room packed full of. Apple Employees, other press, and hearing a lot of excitement about new products. And on the products, let's start with that side of things. What are your biggest takeaways from what was announced and what star listeners be thinking about when they go to buy their next of ice I think the biggest thing I want everyone to remember when they go to buy an apple device is that getting the most expensive apple device doesn't necessarily anymore mean it's the best one to get. Now sure there are going to be features that they're going to have in these higher end products like we saw yesterday with the Apple Watch series six announcement. That is a three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars watch. But we also got an Apple Watch se that starts at two hundred, seventy nine dollars and has a lot of the features you would probably want seeing that also on the IPAD so you can get a three hundred twenty, nine dollar really good ipad. You get an IPAD air new IPAD air that's five, hundred, ninety, nine dollars or you can go up to the eight hundred dollar ipad pro but that IPAD air is actually a really good value and has a lot of the same things as that pro. and. We also heard a lot about services. Apple has really been leaning into this part of its business lately. Did we get any news there? We heard a lot about services yesterday and I think it was really interesting how apple threaded that throughout the hardware announcements specifically fitness plus announcement, and this was an announcement of a new on demand video workout service think about your Peleton's about your other sort of video workout videos but this comes. With an Apple Watch or you have to pay extra ten dollars a month to get this with your Apple Watch and this really sort of emphasizes if you've got this wash if you've got this hardware, then you can also get the service and for apple that means you're going to have recurring revenue. You're going to have this customer who didn't only pay for the hardware, but is now gonNA pay a monthly service fee for this new service. So some changes there another big change normally a new iphone would be the headliner of this event that's been pushed because of coronavirus related supply chain issues. But given everything we saw yesterday do you have any predictions about what new features we might see when that eventually is announced? There is no mention of the iphone which. Actually shocking to me I figured Oh they're going to at least tease it. This is the September event. They're going to remind people. We know we usually gather for the IPHONE but coming soon. But there was none of that. I would say the biggest hint we got about what's coming with the IPHONE is that the Apple Watch will no longer ship in its box a USB adapter the one that you plug into the wall that no longer is GonNa be shipped. In. The box and apple says, that's for environmental reasons that we all have these already why do we need more of these ending up in the landfill? I think apple will do the same exact thing with the iphone coming next month will hold you to that taking a step back here. You know this event is typically meant to really hype up the products that apple announces with no iphone and you mentioned sort of a less flashy event than we're used to. Are we expecting to see an impact on apple's bottom line I would say this is one of the most boring apple events in recent history that said I actually think it could end up being one of the most successful in terms of products announced you had the lower end ipad refresh the three, hundred, twenty, nine dollars Ipad, which we know as a top seller for apple, and now you also have these new apple watches that are. Not as expensive as the usual three, ninety, nine version but one that's more affordable has a lot of health features and you have also this this backdrop of the pandemic and people wanting to spend less and focus on health and I think that the Apple Watch I it's it's been sort of less of a niche product, but it's not spread over to everyone and I. Think this year we're going to see it really broaden its horizons. And here with the announcement of not only the different pricing tiers and having three different models out. But also the family sharing this is a feature they announced where you can actually give the watch to your kid even if they don't have an iphone and you can then set it up and control it and you can also use it to track your kid if they're at school, I think that is really showing how big of A. Market Apple thinks the watch can get into. So they've had things like fall detection for people who are older. They now have this feature for those who are younger. So I really think this is the beginning of seeing the the watch a lot bigger than we had thought

Apple iPad, Watch and Home bundle: Breaking down all the announcements

"Apple held its big September event today, but there was no iphone. So was the IPAD Apple Watch any new bundle enough? I wrote a Chang charged. With me to break everything down is senior editor at large and apple expert. Sure. I high in a it's been a afternoon for there's been a going on. Let's let's break it all down I. Guess by sequence of when they announce their their various products is talking about the apple. I have to remember. Okay. Yeah. It was secrets quartz. Which? In apple years like three years. Let's let's talk about Apple. Watch was the first off the bad. It was the Apple Watch series six and Apple Watch S C you break down these products rest yeah. It's interesting. So the Apple Watch is very clearly increasingly becoming a health device and to people who've been watching this is not a surprise. Apple found a lot of success turning it into a sport device. That started with the second generation Apple Watch when they made swim proof as what they called it not really waterproof pet swim proof and ever since then they've really been adding a lot more features for health and fitness will now they're adding even another feature for health, which is that going to measure your blood oxygen levels and this is going to do it in. Two ways one will be to do it. If you just want to do it now you push a button and it'll measure over fifteen seconds and uses all sorts of infrared lights in some magic by being you get a number and then it'll also do it in intervals just kind of behind the scenes. So just like with the heart center, if suddenly some something seems completely. Off The watch tap heuristic and say, Hey, you might want to look into this, which is what has saved a lot of people's lives. Yeah. Idea civilized was a big deal that that Promo video they ran to for really unveiling these products just was laid it on pretty heavy about the fact that this is this can save your life. Now I must have been Apple Watch. The reality is that this type of technology is very impactful right I mean it's it's kind of stuff like it's it's really sappy to talk about like how disability functions inside of the iphone arena video game console change people's but they do right there. There are entire people who who were stuck indoors not able to do anything or they were blind and they weren't able to live a normal life and they're able to do so much more now because of the technology that's come from why from. Different phones and all sorts of other stuff. So it's not surprising apples laying this on thick because on some level they they've actually saved lives. They deserve to be able to say that, but I think it's going to be interesting to see whether people buy into this idea over. All right. It's still a nerdy thing. It's still an expensive thing and that's that's a hard sell to people who haven't already bought it read just to be clear like the. Blood oxygen like what is it? What does it actually do be able to detect and monitor that like what is that allowing Apple Watch to do so in a lot of ways, this falls under everything else that we've always heard about various health functions and it was actually in the t at the ending card on their announcements. If you go watch the video, you go to the very end it says this is not meant for medical purposes, right? So. This is really just kind to help you quantify your body and your life, and this is one of the problems we've all had with fitbit and everything else. It's cool to get this data and sometimes it's helpful. But reality is once I've gotten him for like six months. One more do I need right and you know my wife doesn't care about any of the data that she She hasn't even tracker steps anymore. She just cares about whether she closes the rings. That's it right. So it's it's actually a lot of this data is is kind of you don't it's helping with all that right in kind of helping you set goals and get there. But a lot of the state is unnecessary. Apple's doing it because they say look it's going to help us with the. Overall kind telling you what your health is and maybe will maybe it won't I don't know. But we'll see we'll say how how much does this they start for? Yes. So that's the other thing is that this device is going to be three ninety nine to start, which is not cheap and you know, and the other thing also is that they have this cheaper phone watch which. is to Sunday nine starts called the Apple Watch S E and I guess for special edition we never know what these letters mean and one of the things about this thing is that basically a repackaged Apple Watch series three, right so it has the fall detection, which is something that the introduced a while back in a lot of people were really you know they were thinking hey. Elderly people you know they have this I fallen and I can't get up little buttons. Now, they can do their watch. So they're adding some of these functions that they do see a lot of. People. Kind of getting interested in into this device two, hundred, seventy, nine dollars in Stephanie Cheaper. We'll see whether people want it, but it says something yeah. That's two hundred ninety nine seems a little too expensive considering the the series three is still around one hundred and fifty dollars a year. It's not a huge difference between the two, seventy nine and the three, ninety nine. Series six that like I don't know there's that struck me as little expensive for those quote unquote affordable model. I mean think about Black Friday, right one of the things that I have always of found interesting about apple having covered it. Now for more than a decade, is that in a long time ago it apples pears didn't move like there was never a sale on their phones there was never a sale on their. Computers it was very rare and it was only a little bit. But now we're starting to see a sales on them when they come out right and we're seeing prices dropped dramatically during holiday sales. So to seventy nine to start yeah, that does feel a little heart but I wouldn't be surprised to see that creep down to two hundred by the end of this year the other the other big lot unveiled was two new. ipads. So let's let's go into the IPAD at the higher end version what what is new about this new air? Yeah. It takes a lot of the feeling of the pack pro. So it actually has a this more square look to it, which if you care Kinda Cool Stephanie Different and it also has a bigger screen that is actually looks a lot like the IPAD pro so you may remember the IPAD pro they got. Rid of the touch ID, right that button that allows you to use your fingerprint. So this one does not have the face unlock like the IPAD pro instead touch ideas now in the button on the side that you do the power button, that's kind of course. So they that's how they were able to lower the prices from the IPAD pro. It still has a very powerful chip they say it's much more powerful than chromebooks. UPS and all that, and we'll see you know everyone has to do their tests, but it's ships in October for five hundred, ninety, nine dollars again, not cheap and way more expensive than the cheapest chromebooks out there. So we'll see whether people are interested. Yeah. I'll say that pay particular attention that touch ID because it's it is abundant on the top of the screen, not screen top of the device itself it's basically the power bun. I would be intrigued to see if they stick that into the iphone twelve, it would be really smart because right now face ideas essentially useless when you're wearing a mask. So having some sort of touch ID center and I don't think they've got the under glass fingerprint sensor thing down pat yet this would be a good a good compromise.

Google’s much improved Pixel Buds are finally here

"Back when the pixel phones were refreshed. You might remember that. Google announced the hundred and seventy nine dollars. Second Gen Pixel Bud wireless ear buds. They were to be Google's first. True wireless ear buds eliminating that fabric tether that the first generation had and the emphasis at the time was on the hands. Free Google assistant voice control capabilities. However they weren't immediately made available delayed for six months or something as Google said at the time. Well it's been six months. It's spring and finally. The new Pixel Buds are here and at the Verge Chris. Welsh says. The design is much improved. Wireless charging is cool. Google assistant works well and the sound quality is very good. However one small caveat quote new to this iteration as soft stabiliser arc. Think of it like a silicone fin on each earbud. That's meant to help the Pixel buds stay anchored in your ears. I had no issues with comfort. But we've been testing a few pairs of Pixel Buds and dinner and Becca. Bo said the ARC caused some soreness during extended listening and quote. I should describe this. It's not a silicon thin. That goes around the outside of your ear. It's actually it tucks inside your kind ear canal a little bit. I can see how if your ears aren't shaped correctly. That would be a little uncomfortable. So I know if that's a deal breaker or not I guess it depends on your ear and I mean one advantage of the design is the fact that you don't have anything dangling from your head if you'll recall that does mean it sort of looks like you've got Frankenstein. Monster style bolts in your ears. But I guess that's an a weirder than any other design that's out there. And frankly the coolest application of these things remains the ability to use google. Translate in real time if you're traveling. And Encountering Foreign Tongues Chris's conclusion in his review. Was this quote at one. Hundred seventy nine dollars. The Pixel Buds are priced at the same level as Jabra's elite seventy five t ear buds. Which is still personally pick over these for their more dynamic sound and because you don't miss out on features depending on what phone you have. There's unsurprisingly no pixel buds APP for IOS. But if Google assistant has a decent sized presence in your life you might be willing to make do with the downsides of Google's new ear buds lacking base and the occasional swell in outside noise for the convenience of being able to call upon it anytime anywhere

Price Gouging Incidents Follow Coronavirus Outbreak

Price Gouging Incidents Follow Coronavirus Outbreak

"Have you been to the supermarket recently? Tried to buy hand sanitizer even toilet paper. Basic supplies are selling out in the wake of the corona virus and that creates a problem in times of demand. Price-gouging can be a big issue. That is something New York attorney. General Letitia James has noticed. I asked her for the evidence that she's seen. We've issued a total of six letters to merchants for price gouging of hand sanitizers and disinfectants sprays. In addition to that we've sent out three cease and desist letters to merchants for selling products. They claim to treat or cure corona virus individuals who've been engaged in deceptive advertising. They include the televangelist. Jim Bakker who had a person on his show selling a product that claim to treat corona virus. And what they are doing is nothing short of taking advantage of the fears That's out there throughout the general public. And what we should be doing is spreading facts and not fear. So it's it's one thing to put forth a completely fraudulent cure or something that claims to be a cure for the corona virus. Price-gouging is more complicated. Is it not? How do you determine when raising prices across the line and becomes illegal price-gouging well in one particular instance and individual a store in midtown Manhattan with selling a hand sanitizer for seventy nine dollars and so? There's no definitive answer to that question. But you know it when you see it. And so I don't know of any hand sanitizer. That costs almost eighty dollars. And so you know when you see when individuals are taking advantage of the market particularly when neighboring stores selling the same product for considerably less the Justice Department created an agency called the National Center for Disaster Fraud After Hurricane Katrina. Do you think the federal government is doing enough to protect people from getting taken advantage of financially clearly The federal government can do more. I'm not in a position. Right now. To criticize the federal government it will not ignore to the benefit of anybody and it will not result in addressing the issue of this virus. And what we really should be doing is working together. The federal government should be working with municipal governments as well as state governments and providing US assistance and testing and providing all municipalities and private companies testing kits that we contested test the general public. And lastly what can consumers do if they encounter what they believed to be price-gouging in their state? So let me just say that. The Office of Attorney General. We have one Urging individuals caution with respect to making charitable donations if individuals want to report Retailers that appear to be taking unfair advantage of consumers. They can report these incidents to the office of Attorney General. You can report. Suspicious charitable solicitations and scams to the office of Attorney General. Our Charities Bureau and individuals are contacting the general public with respect to investment scams. They can contact our office as well as the United States Securities and Exchange Commission

How Do You Compare to the Average American?

How Do You Compare to the Average American?

"The financial profile all of the average American or more accurately profiles of many average Americans since a proper apples to apples? Comparison takes into account several factors. So we're GONNA approach this this by looking at the financial life cycle of somebody which of course starts with birth. Fortunately you don't have to pay for your own birth. That's good because because the average cost of a birth in America these days ten thousand dollars and that's if there are no complications whatsoever So let's jump ahead to one of the first experiences people have have with actually earning money and that is an allowance. How many kids get an allowance? And how much do they get law. According to a recent survey from the American Institute of CPA's as two thirds of parents get allowance and the average is thirty dollars a week. It's pretty nice. Isn't ages they say what ages they start giving they broke it down a little bit. Okay but what was interesting to me was far too five. Parents expect the children to do work. Some people feel like you should just allowance because that's how you learn how to be responsible And they expect at least one hour week of chores but on average children are spending five point one hours a week doing chores for their allowance. So let me just say that my kids are below average with my kids are not doing five hours. Where the tour? I don't even do five hours worth of chores in our house and I do a lot of chores in our. What are these are? Are these kids living on a farm like that's a very good question. Chores chores could be clean your room for us. It is dishes this. This is the number one joy that kids do and we're not even very good of making them. Do it. Put your own shoes on in the morning to dress yourself. Live at Downton Abbey. Everyone everyone here anyway. So there you go. That's allowance so that's money from your parents but you'll eventually reach the point where you can start earning money from other people and here we are talking about being a teenager but the emphasis is can because most teenagers don't according to a study by the Hamilton project. And the Brookings Institute back in Nineteen nineteen seventy nine fifty eight percent of teenagers. Were doing some sort of work. But today it's only thirty five percent most teenagers don't have a job which not even like babysitting reasoning or I I guess not then the factors for why this has gone down as number one. They say that teenagers just have more things to do. Like like more kids are doing More kids are taking classes over the summer. Also there's less low wage work more competition from older folks and immigrants. That said I have three teenagers and I'm not sure I quite vile this Mike. Especially in the summer my kids have managed to find jobs but regardless the majority of teenagers not working. What was your first job while so I used to cut before I was of age to be doing? I cut lawns in the neighborhood and Dan. I watered flowers at a local flower shop. Then sure I've told you this story F.. I faked my birth certificate so I could work in McDonalds when I was age. Fifteen instead instead of sixteen so I did that ric have I to you. It was your first job horrible paper route once where you have to go door to door and collect the money which I always hated to do you so I never did it so I never really got paid for thing. What about you so my first job? I I went to high school where you are expected to work like four hours a day so you go to class in either the morning or the afternoon and then you would then so what kind of like work at the school. Yeah you'd work in the school or you'd lurk working in nearby bakery or you'd work farm too so you could work on the farm. Some people had farm jobs or work on maintenance and the school So I worked for the principal symbol. Of course I was responding. I did a lot of you. Know entering in people's grades and typing let transcribing letters and just the office work so as like fifteen. I think started. Did you like that because I've often thought especially as a former elementary school teacher junior high teacher. I thought a lot of this education is wasted in the dish. It's been half the day like working out in the basically interning at different types of jobs because they're not learning so much in school. Yeah no I mean it was is one of the better jobs to have on campus. That's for sure. So did you. And your friends. I'll get straight a's no but we I mean we could. We could have definitely changed. All of our grades were honest asked by it was a religious school so God would have smoked in us we. We were well aware of the consequences for changing our grades. So we didn't do it got got it. At least I didn't what's next in life. maxine life is well. We're going real job hitting their well even before. Then you finish high school and and then what college you go to college. I should first of all point out that it's nice if you want to write so point out. First of all. The graduation rate from public high schools is now eighty five percent near an all time high. So let's go so how many people then go onto college sixty nine point seven percent according to the Department of Labor not everyone gets four year degree as some people go to college and they don't get a degree. People get the associates so when you look at four year bachelor's degrees and graduate degrees. It's it's between thirty five and forty percent of people who actually end up with a degree but almost seventy percent do end up going to college which of course brings us to one of the first major financial decisions. A kid has to make depending on how much their family is willing and able to pay and that is the cost of college so according to the College Board. Let's go over the numbers here for the two thousand nineteen thousand twenty year a four year your public in State Education Room Board Fees Tuition Twenty one thousand nine hundred and fifty for your public out of state thirty eight thousand three hundred and thirty four year private school forty nine thousand four hundred ninety dollars ice now. The College Board is quick to point out at those are the published sticker prices and that most people don't pay those they say that about three quarters of students receive grants that reduce the actual price that people pay and just just about every college these days has something called net price calculator. You go onto their website. You put in some basic financial information. It gives you a general idea of how much you would pay. It's not binding or anything but if you're thinking of a college go to the net price calculator and you get an idea of how much aid you might receive. That said. We all know that grants. It's an aren't enough. which brings us to the topic of educational loan so approximately two thirds of kids graduate with debt with the average being between thirty thousand and forty thousand dollars depending on which source? You're looking at repayment. Can Take Ten to twenty years. And according to the Federal Reserve one fifth of ours were behind in their payments in two thousand in seventeen. So you have to wonder is a college degree worth the cost well for most people. The answer's probably yes. College grads on average earn seventy I five percent more than high school grads but that said the Fed did find that college is not a good investment for about twenty five percent of graduates and several studies of people who have loans at found that the majority of people regret the debt and they wish they would have found some other way to pay for college either going to community college allege not going to the private school something like that but regardless of how you pay for it you do graduate head out of college time for that first job. How much can you expect to make while starting salaries these days around fifty three thousand dollars? But who's paying you the most well engineering degrees computer. Peter Science and math those starting salaries are between sixty five thousand and seventy thousand math math. Now that's crazy math data that everyone is so hot with the data. One loves the data exactly so since we just brought up salaries. Let's expand this beyond starting income income in general in the United States. What is the average or the median household income and the United States and the answer is whereas the sixty three thousand one hundred seventy nine dollars? that's what you said family or average average average household household income but there are a lot of factors that would tournament starting with where you live. So the highest incomes are in the northeast. Meeting is around. Seventy thousand thousand filed by the West Midwest and the South South is lowest at fifty seven thousand. Being married helps. The median income for a household with a married couple earns. Ninety three thousand six hundred dollars Also age is a factor the households will make the most are in the forty five to fifty four age range with a median income of eighty. Four thousand four hundred dollars. We've talked about this before. Where income generally peaks at some point in your late forties or early fifties? Finally just just give me an idea of where your income puts you in relation to the rest of America. Here's how the income dispersion breaks down so if you make thirty seven thousand dollars you're in the bottom thirty thirty percent again. Median sixty three thousand. If you make one hundred thousand year in the top thirty percent hundred eighty four year in the top ten percent and to be in the top five five percent you make two hundred and forty eight thousand dollars. That's generally how income breaks down.

This Console Cost the Equivalent of $758 in 1977

"The Atari video pinball system I think it was a Tari pit video pinball C.. Three sixty I think is the full name and it was released in nineteen seventy seven but we got this one. Probably in seventy eight seventy nine maybe even eighty but I was looking back at this is is the way it set up. Have pictures in the show notes. So you the listener can go check it out. But it basically is a big block of the plastic and it has a dial on the top and then it has two little push buttons on the side for your pinball games because it was a pinball game basketball ballgame and then break out or pong. Excuse me break out. And then Pong too and you use a little side buttons as flippers for the or the pinball all game and then the dial in the front used for breakout in then it ran and it was color but the most insane thing is is that Iran on six exte- batteries six at sea batteries. Yeah yeah let that roll off. The tongue see batteries. It didn't plug in and I remember we'd always have to replace stupid things with the batteries and you win. It started running low on batteries. The lines on the screen started to get blurry a little bit and kind of Fade in and out and you hooked it up to your TV and it was done through the antenna system because back then they didn't have hd Meyer higher even the RCA. Jack You just had this antenna attachment that would kind of you. Had these two screws on the back of your TV you'd loosen them up and put these little wires underneath and tighten. Tighten it back down again. And that's how hooked up and it was color but way we had it at our house is the Nice TV was upstairs and it was color and the downstairs had an old black and white. TV So we didn't even had color for for this system. Sometimes my parents would let us bring it upstairs and play with it up there. But so so the seven video games at a had were four pinball pinball variations basketball game in two versions of breakout so breakout had the little paddle at the bottom. And then you knock out all the little color tiles at the top and the I don't remember much about the basketball game I just remember the pinball and the break breakout by far are was the one that we we played the most. But I don't know if you've ever seen this one randy before her heard about it. I've heard of it but I've never seen it. I've never used used one. I've never seen one in the wild super interesting I. I'm so surprised that it runs on batteries. No definite it's that's so weird but this is one of those like it's Kinda what Nintendo does anymore. It's one of those. The controller is the console. Guess where the controls patrols built right into the console. That's that's very interesting. I it is like we you or Or a switch and I didn't know about the is cool that it's has pinball and it's got the buttons on the side for the flippers. That's fun yeah. It's in research like we were saying earlier. There are a lot of systems like this. That didn't this is before the days of the cartridge. So you put all your games in one big block unit and we primarily had this on the floor in front of the TV. So you Kinda lay on your stomach car. You might sit and put it on your lap and use it that way and that's us the buttons. There's some buttons on the Front. You have five different buttons ones reset select elect option power and then ball served so when you did pong or breakout you hit the little button and then the ball comes down and you start playing then as how how that worked so the the guts of it your your calculator. Your watch probably has more world than this thing but it was. It was our first system. I was probably five six years old at the at the most when we got it and so for me it was like well. This is really cool and I grew up in the in the country out in Nebraska. So we didn't have an arcade nearby and so this was. I'm surprised my parents bought this. Actually I'm shocked and yet because the kind of had a pong market back then but this kind of came to an end of course when later on the Atari Twenty six hundred came out and you could more more than seven games on system and the cost for this. I was researching this. So the cost for this back in seventy seven on one website said it was isn't one hundred seventy nine dollars which would be seven hundred and fifty eight dollars in today's dollars. Imagine your parents spending almost eight hundred bucks or even now spending spending seven hundred fifty eight dollars for a game system that only played seven games seven games so yeah there's no Expanding the library there. Wow that's insane I. I was just shocked when I ran the numbers on that as a website. You can go to plug in the year and it will you put the dollar amount. It tells you what that is valued today but seven. Let's see systems like playstation four and Xbox or what four ninety nine. I think we're based system. I think so. Yeah I one hundred bucks. This is two hundred fifty dollars more than just so. When I heard that I saw that I was like? I'm sure my parents pigs except year or two later so probably wasn't quite that but it was still still a lot of money and I think the thing that of course this thing is the style gic for me so of course I'm probably is not that great of a system when he kind of look at it but at the time and that your first system you kind of like Whoa. This is cool. I I have no plans to buy this. You can buy it on Ebay and other places. But I don't know we don't even have an antenna hookup. You'd probably have to get some sort of adapter to make it

So if I was in those shoes if I was the gentleman that called into the eight hundred seven hundred eight zero six eight hotline. I would actually continue doing what I was doing before the phone call. I would continue paying four thousand one hundred sixty two dollars instead of twenty three hundred eighty three dollars. I wouldn't save a penny. I would spend exactly what the same amount. I was going out of my pocket now with the better terms. I would actually pay off my home in ten years seven months that's a hundred and twenty seven payments. I told you a little bit ago if they didn't call us they were going to pay off the home in three hundred and forty eight months, they're really one year in this loan by doing the same thing. They would save seven hundred thirty eight thousand dollars over the life of the loan.
