Global Shortage in Semiconductors Increases
"Global shortage in computer chips reaches crisis point. And i really wish that they would just break more into what's actually going on behind the scenes. I get it maybe to some extent. We might not actually know what's going on. But let's hop on into the articles. He what's up. Consumers are facing price rises and shortages of products from. Tv's mobile phones to cars and game consoles as a global shortage in. Semiconductors grows shortage in chips. The brain with an electronic device in the world has been steadily worsening since last year now. Initially the problem was only temporarily in supplies. Factories shut down when the pandemic i hit however although production is back to normal a new surge in demand driven by changing habits fueled by the pandemic means that now is reaching a crisis point car manufacturers investing in tech heavy electric vehicles. Which is okay. I'm just going to make a point to some extent stupid. Gopher hybrid the boom in sales of tv's in home computers launch new game consoles five g. Mobile phones have all driven demand. So we know that demand has been going on an increase to like crazy stupid level that we haven't seen before even a mighty apple a two trillion dollar company in the world's biggest buyer of semiconductors spending fifty eight billion annually was forced to delay the launch of much hyped iphone twelve by two months last year due to the shortage in one of the reasons. Chips are everything says neal camping media in tech analyst at mehrabad. There's a perfect storm of supply and demand factors going on here but basically there is a new level of demand that can't be kept up with everyone is in crisis and it's getting worse for recently canceled shift at two car.

While chip shortage looks set to persist for some time yet. It up the two years to get complex semiconductor production factories up and running and manufacturers are in process of significantly raising prices for the second time in less than a year is no sign of supply catching upper demand decreasing while prices are rising across the chain so economically. What does this mean means. Less supply obviously unable to meet demand and prices. Go up because of it. Because that's kind of the only counterbalance that you have to be able to balance everything taken an economics course at the basic level. How things work. So what exactly is going on. It could be that. There aren't enough factories able to produce enough of a supply of semiconductors. One thing i'm wondering though is are there enough materials to be able to construct it. I mean semiconductors aren't really the easiest to make their actually quite complex quite exact in its production of it not to mention you also need to have trained individuals who know how to do it. Do it well Which is a limited supply of as

Google follows Apple in cutting Play Store fees for developers
"Seen that ran the piece tuesday saying that. Google is following apple's lead and lowering the commission charges most developers selling to the google play store while the changes similar to apple's at something google's scott might be more generous according to seeing that google will only take a fifteen percent commission on sales up to one million dollars the fee will jump to the standard thirty percent wants developers make more than the one million dollars in sales for a year. According to the report sounds the same as apples offer but it isn't a piece from ars. Technica ran the matt. Saying apple applies. It's lower fifteen percent rate to a developer. Developer exceed one million dollars in revenue in a given year at which point the thirty percent number is applied to all of that developers. Earn inc's google still charges fifteen percent on that first million even if the developer makes five million so in google's model a developer who earns one point two million dollars on a nap pays fifteen percent on one million then thirty percent on two hundred thousand and novels a developer making eight hundred thousand four hundred over fifteen percent on that amount but if they make one point two million they pay thirty percent on all one point two million. Not just two hundred thousand. It's tough to know how many developers straddle that million dollar fence. There's also a bird in the hand thing going on right now. While apple's lower commission went live at the first of the year seen that says google's won't drop until the first of july quoted in the scene that piece google. vp of product management. Samir soman said with this change ninety nine percent of developers globally that sell digital goods and services with play. We'll see a fifty percent reduction in fees. I'm no mathematician but does that indicate that ninety nine percent of developers selling in the google play store make less than a million dollars a year. I mean i knew the split between the cells and the cells knots was big but golly as for what such large as costs apple and google saying the cost is manageable would be understating it a piece from. Cnbc has numbers from the app. Tracking firm center tower. According to those apple and google or giving up less than five percent of their revenue from apps with the commission changes will let cnbc and sensor tower. Do them at this. If the fifteen percent fee schedule on revenue up to one million dollars and been in place on google play in twenty twenty google would have missed out on five hundred. Eighty seven million dollars or about five percent of sensor towers estimate of eleven point. Six billion dollars in google pay fees for the year. If apple's program had been in place for twenty twenty center tower estimates that it would have missed out on five hundred and ninety five million or about two point seven percent of its estimated twenty one point seven billion dollars an app store fees in twenty twenty. I gotta say that makes apple structure look worse. Actually and i didn't have to say that. And yet i did unhappy with the changes. A guy who won't be greatly affected by these changes. Google shuffling of commissions was likely spurred by apple's commissions which the start of the year that was likely spurred by bad press generated by the coalition for up fairness which was blinked into existence by epic game. Ceo tim sweeney putting it to sink play. Cnbc's says epic games is currently suing apple and google seeking the make changes to their app stores to allow for third party payment processors as well as other changes that is like the reader's digest version of the cliffs notes of what's going on but works summon forth from the fort. Sweeney took to twitter on tuesday to say why. The changes are inadequate in his estimation. quoting sweeney. Tweet it's a self serving gamut. The far majority of developers will get this new fifteen percent rate and thus be less inclined to fight but the far majority of revenue is naps. What the thirty percent rate so. Google and apple can continue to inflate prices and flees consumers with their app taxes.

And i've been working in blockchain's and insurance since Wouldn't be fifteen august. And i'm passionate about multiple editing and my expertise. Elliot's group at a stop modeling blockchain's insurance on morton's liberty and climate change anybody passionate about those are the key things about indeed. I think we also have common passions both on blockchain but also on on climate change. So it's great to have you with us on this show our top as you're quite familiar with the shows we're going to start off with our first question. Which is could you please explain our listeners. What is blockchain. And how does it work. Yeah so blockchain and the slightly order term and get used for. dlt's also. I really shared this particular simplified description which is more applicable to then a purist blockchain description since that is my focus so normally using a client create and propose transaction to one or more web servers run by one party. Typically one server validates that transaction and different. There's okay then process sincere in blockchain more. Dlt really using a client. We propose transaction to multiple servers run by different parties which validated on action. And if okay together consensus process and if the consensus was a succeeds then the process the transaction and save it and they typically the blockchain varies from here on that. It saves it in that particular blocks but in the deal. The doesn't necessarily so. That's basically how we how i would explain what blockchain us thank you for that so To continue as could you also give us an introduction to tata consultancy services. Yes oh pcs fifty already. Services company grand old. We are part of the group one of the largest and most espn. She conglomerates on the planet attack loop gets much more revenue from india then from insane india out of it stolen hundred and six billion dollars revenue. Tag group hasn't track record of enlightened policies for workers much more before they became common even in the west so We have Twenty two billion dollars revenue. Four hundred and seventy global professionals including thirty six point four percent women from an total of one hundred and forty seven nationalities. I have a personal relationship to the toddler group. My father worked in india and told me stories of title and todd in particular due to it's much more social purposive nature. I like working here. And is sir very much reflective of the group in general so i have my own dc s fifty watch and long. My father is one from the loop so that that's from india. So that's basically what. I like about the pieces group. This is fascinating because you're obviously there's a family history to it. But i i personally did not know you know about how important. Es g was to the tag group. So it's wonderful to hear that let's focus a little bit. You know regards to tag consultancy services itself because in in november of last year yet you partnered with d three i to design develop and launch ecosystems innovations based on distributed ledger technology. For the insurance industry. Could you please tell us what is partnership means to tcl s but also what it means to you personally. Yeah thanks so i was. The first globally to write about. Blockchain can be applied to commercial insurance and reinsurance in august twenty teen associated with many people and associations considering implementing blockchain's and insurance including some of the original or you know pretty old be ti people then so be initiated by the insurance industry for the industry this is the best and most feasible way of implementing blockchain's in insurance or for that matter in industry if it is something that the industry standard for itself. It's always easier having worked in the london insurance market since two thousand eleven. I'm sharply aware of how difficult collaboration between competencies. And i've seen that. Don't the difficult work. I have some friends. And i have discussed particularly with. They didn't offer good for example. How difficult it is but bt. I has got got all this correct. You know they have figured this out. They have Twenty one committed investors and lots of members to get a consortium blockchain of the ground. It is necessary to have afford. The industry by industry consortium like betray then. There is a key role for the product vision technology.

Theseus have a key role to play in enabling consortium blockchain's to succeed. And that's basically why. I'm still in dc said not in a startup. We don't because. I think they said yeah.
Cam Newton Re-Signing With Boston's Patriots: Making Sense Of The Move
"I do wanna move to the quarterback news today tony because bill ballot check and cam. Newton have apparently decided to run it back next season with the patriots agreeing to terms with newton on a one year. Deal with up to fourteen million dollars. Newton did struggle down the stretch famously. Last season tony. So does this move makes sense to you. It's so charitable that you'd say he struggled down the stretch. He struggled from the moment he got in there. He had twelve rushing touchdowns which is wonderful but he had eight passing touchdowns and ten interceptions. I want to get the stats right. Here he was. I mean he couldn't throw downfield. He was twenty eighth in passing rating and he was deadliest in yards per game. And so you asked me. Does it make sense. And i'm going to tell you declarative in affirmatively. It does make sense because he's a professional quarterback right and he took responsible. He was terrible last year. He couldn't throw it but he took responsibility after every loss. He said this is my fault. He was a leader. The other players revered him as a leader. The coaching staff loved him as leader. Belichick him. Personally the worst that can happen problem is that he becomes a backup. And would you trust your team to the backup cam newton after all these years. Yes you would. It does feel like the contract. You give to maybe charitably again. A high end. Backup tony because look the deal as it is six billion dollars again or wrapped up in incentives and honors and playoff achievement. So a lot of this really does hinge on how we actually plays in real time but the other thing about this. That clear is that this is just mr right now for bill belichick. This is not mr right. They're going to go and look around. And there is a phrase that i think of another piece of wisdom from someone else that by the way describes nothing about my own personal life or philosophies but you are as faithful as your options. What some wise men believe bill. Belichick is faithful to cam newton right now because there aren't options otherwise at that price but is it going to look at the draft and say. Can we get another quarterback absolutely. Oh he'll look at the draft. And maybe mack jones will be there and maybe trade lance will be there and he'll maybe everybody talks about him requiring jimmy garoppolo very when he's not having broken bones but he has broken bones a lot you. It is at the moment to marriage of convenience. But i will say three things. One cam had no training camp last year none too. He actually had toronto virus himself and might have been in a depleted physical condition. And three m. it's it's just hard for me to believe that he would be this bad again. I you know. I got to be a little bit better but again again. My point would be if you were stuck with cam. Newton that's like being stuck with twenty five other backups. This guy who was the mvp at one point and on muscle memory alone. He could probably make something happen. Maybe maybe i'm being naive about this. I don't
The Roblox Debut
"Is out the door. Robots closed its first day of trading as a public company at sixty nine dollars. Fifty cents valuing the company at thirty eight point two six billion dollars quoting cnbc. Shares began trading at sixty four dollars. Fifty cents which represented a forty three percent increase from a private financing round just in january when the company sold shares for forty five dollars the reference price on tuesday of forty five dollars though no stock changed hands at those levels. The reference price tends to reflect private market trading and does not indicate where a stock will open road blocks hits the market coming off an explosive year of growth primarily from kids who were stuck at home because covid nineteen forced schools to close and sports leagues to shutdown within roadblocks which is one of the top grossing apps on apple and google devices users create. Avatars that they can move between the millions of games on the service navigating theme parks adopting virtual pets and fighting enemies with their friends. Revenue last year jumped eighty two percent to nine hundred and twenty three point. Nine million dollars still relaxes. Net loss widened to two hundred and fifty three point. Three million dollars from seventy one million dollars in two thousand nineteen as the company almost triple. The amount of money paid to develop through its revenue sharing program more than twelve hundred and fifty developers made at least ten thousand dollars last year through virtual sales in their roadblocks games and quote. Now i've said before that in the universe of unicorns among the companies investors. I'm friendly with our most. Enthused about roadblock has been at the top of that list the yardstick i'm using here to measure the level of investor. Excitement is basically when i hear investors. Say something like damn it. I wish i had gotten in early on that company. Roadblocks has been the name most mentioned in that context for about a year. Now the other one by the way is stripe which people have foam mode on forever but over the last year the frenzy around fintech has reached a fever. pitch so stripe has become the company. Everyone's still wishes they were in on early or still wants to get in on now if they can anyway back to roadblocks. You don't have to take my word for it in terms of people's excitement around this company. Here's ben thompson describing how by bringing disparate parts of gaming into one place. Roadblocks is basically created the conditions for interlocking feedback loops. That are very exciting. Quote by controlling. Everything roadblocks can bring all of the disparate parts of gaming into one place instead of one app for social interactions another app for purchases and a different app for every different game. Everything is all in the same place. This also makes roadblocks easier to develop for by constraining graphics to a consistent toolbox. It's very easy to build something new. This creates the conditions for the interlocking feedback loops that characterize transformational products by reducing the prominence and feature set of games. Roadblocks made it possible to create something. Bigger a micro verse. This actually fits the pattern of other transformational products. The feed for instance relies on reducing all types of content from post to photos to links to the same format such that they can all be incorporated into a greater whole. It's a reason why. I think that clubhouse being all audio actually gives it an advantage relative to twitter. That leaves more room for user entrepreneurship.

Johnson & Johnson and other drug companies plan tax breaks to offset $26 billion opioid settlement
"Johnson and johnson has gotten a lot of praise for its single dose covid nineteen vaccine approved by the fda last weekend but as it works to end the pandemic. johnson and johnson is also among four of america's biggest healthcare companies that are negotiating a settlement for their role in the nation's deadly opioid crisis. Tens of billions of dollars are at stake but the companies are also planning to use corporate tax breaks including a new one created during the pandemic to offset those opioid payouts. Some members of congress are furious about this. Npr addiction correspondent. Brian man joins us now. Brian So we mentioned johnson and johnson but there are other companies in this situation rate. Rachel johnson and johnson's obviously the name brand company here. These other three cardinal health amirah source baragan and mckesson work more behind the scenes or these really big corporations that earned huge profits distributing highly addictive opioid medications and now they face this wave of lawsuits tied to that business we know from financial filings at the companies are close to a settlement. That would resolve all that. Here's a cardinal health. Ceo michael kaufmann speaking to investors last month of cover the opioid quickly. You know as i've said in the path that continues to be as you know complex the go a lot of moving parts but were continuing to make progress there under the tentative terms of this deal. Cardinal health and these other companies aren't expected to admit any wrongdoing but as much as twenty six billion dollars would be paid out to help communities slammed by the opioid crisis but now these companies have revealed plans to write off a portion of those opioid payments on their taxes. House that's is that supposed to work. Yeah this is really controversial. In financial filings. The firm say they plan to declare these opioid payments as losses which is a deduction right. It's similar to one. Anybody might use to pay less than federal taxes. So if they pay twenty six billion dollars in opioid settlements they could recoup as much as four billion in tax benefits and that really anger some lawmakers including congressman jimmy gomez. He's a democrat from california. He says these communities need that money they get away with it detonates. Less money going into into the treasury that means less money for programs that will help get with the fallout of the crystals the companies. Meanwhile say they're just following federal tax law and that appears to be the case. One of the companies cardinal health says it plans to use a new tax break created last year under the cares act. This was a law. Signed by former president trump meant to help companies that were struggling because of the pandemic is cardinal health. A struggling company. No and this again is why this is so controversial. These health care and drug companies have done really well financially over the last year but cardinal health has confirmed it still plans to use that pandemic tax benefit to recoup as much as four hundred and twenty million dollars in taxes. Already paid out. The company sent a statement. Npr saying their tax plan is quote permissible under federal law but congressman gomez described. This use of the cares act is outrageous and wrong. His committee the house oversight and reform committee sent letters to all of these companies asking for more information about their tax strategies. We expect to hear some answers to those questions by next

But apathy, then always this. When I was in elected office is the kryptonite of American politics because people don't show up until it's their backyard and everything is actually kinda in your backyard. But you don't know it until directly affects you, and you can see it is one of the things because used to be in city government that unless it's something you can literally get your hands around get your arms around. So to see it, touch, it taste it. It's just more of an abstract. Governor Brad said, no thirty six billion dollar budget. Nobody calls, but we we start talking about no two hundred fifty voting fee on guys reservoir, and it is torture. Pitchforks. The best deal. Decide this. I just had this this this vision. This vision of all of that. Yeah. I always I always laugh at maintain that when I worked I felt like the pace in city government was just so intense from working in state government because you're right there is that direct contact all the time. I my perspective on this with the sort of the blow up in crash is I think the last couple of years the legislative session. You did have refrained you had some of those different issues, and then the session before and went down to the end went under the liar than they had to special session. I I really don't think they could have done that again this year. I think they had to have something that was fairly drama free. Where I think you'll see the drama is now after because the ripple effect from the gaming legislation. Right. You've got a lot of new things happening. There's a lot of focus on that there. Maggie some folks who aren't happy with how it turned out. So I think we'll continue to see new stories and the like from that you've also got you still have Curtis Hilla shoes. You still have Brian Bosma issues. The issues at the flights and the governor. So I don't think any of that's going away. But I think they were able to maintain it. I think they were able to contain the drama during session because I think they not the public would have been real. I think people were really fed up last year. And I think they would have been really mad around about four or five minutes left. Brad. An observation was made by our colleague nervous, China who joins the program from time to time while sort of the lack of transparency a lot of these things these assertions or sort of made in caucus where they argued behind closed doors, and there was really much time for public debate public session is that the price you pay for drama free government. It wasn't just behind closed doors at the state house. One of these decisions were settled outside of the state house long ahead of time occasionally on a private jet. So too.

He and his company was just awarded a two point six billion dollar contract by NASA to get this put a robot on the moon, and that is just one of a whole series of incredible projects that navene Jane is up to in the world today. Navene is the biggest thinker. I know and I met a lot of major thinkers, but what I like about navene is how he started with such humble roots as an immigrant from India who moved to the United States started a series of companies raised incredible children. He has three kids who have graduated from either league universities, not up to incredible businesses of our own intervene went on to start a string of companies not the least of which is moon express, the one that just won that contract from NASA. Navene other company is volume which is actually disrupting healthcare by creating personalized medicine based on get this your gut bacteria, so navene, Jane, welcome to the mind podcast. Thanks a lot in. It's an honor. And a pleasure to be here. There are so many incredible things where we can take this conversation. But you know, the biggest thing I admire about you is really how you think you wrote a book called moon shots. And it's about your ideas in your ability to expand visions to be. So so massive that people rally around that vision, I would love for you to tell us a little bit about moon shots and this book that you've written. Well, we shan't move shots are really these on day. Shes ideas that move people on the surface believe our emboss -able in the minute. We thought to. Leave something impossible it becomes impossible for us. And no one else. So the idea of moon shots was how do we thought getting people the tooth in the thinking the mindset for them to be able to go out and solve these problems have been vaccines the humanities for generations to come. And there has never been dime in the human history where individuals and small group of people are capable of doing things that were only done by nation states or even superpowers, and that is the power of exponential technologies. And the second thing this book covers really is about the most people are afraid to do things because they always say, I know nothing about this industry. What I knew nothing about this problem in essentially turns out that the left Hyun. No, the better the chances you'll be able to disrupt the industry once you become an expert at something you mostly become useless. And when I say useless. You become an 'incrementalist and the best you can do is to incrementally improve it by then, but you can never change something ten times a hundred times if you are an expert that has to come from thinking someone is willing to challenge. The foundation of what you've taken it for in the lot of the things really around saga. The problem is how you think about it are you taking from the mindset of scarcity or you really thinking from the mindset of abundance. Are you really thinking that abundance can actually be created from consideration? Or can it actually only be created by creation and all these hearts really come down to how you ask the question. What is it that you trying to do if you don't have clarity of parts, you always end up solving the wrong problem? Okay. So what intrigues me about you is the scale of what you're trying to do. I mean. Well, like, I'm so so so impressed by what just happened with that NASA contract. Your company Mooney. Xpress. Just gone, but while running moon express, your also building up volume, which is a fascinating company, tell us about vile. So if you think about it, why is it that the more money spending on healthcare, the thicker, the people are getting at least in United States. It is completely the wrong incentive.

"Well, I mean, and that's the other thing, you know, the cost aspect has been a huge thing and the whole time. He's always been like Mexico's in pay for it. Yes. I told y'all flat out denying that. He ever said. It's like there's video love it. He's been saying this in every which way. So he said they're going to cut a check. We're gonna make up for listening. Hanley Fox News even finally called him on. Yeah. Showed footage, right? So exactly because they're like, wait. We were all like getting off to the idea of Mexico's gonna pay for the wall. That's why people were so into like yet. And they'll pay for this him just walk this back because this is classic dude. Fucking just eating shit. When I say Mexico's going to pay for the wall. That's what I said Mexico's going to I didn't say they're going to write me a check for twenty billion or ten billion. He did write a check. I should they're going to pay for the wall. And if congress approves this incredible trade Bill that we made with Mexico and Canada, by the way, but with Mexico in this case the pain. For the war. Many many times over. Okay. So let's again for anybody. All I gang listening out there and people go, well, they're going to pay for it through the trade deficit here. Again, let me just refresh all with how that works because trade deficits are not a function of an imbalance between governments. Okay. It is about the discrepancy between the value of goods and services purchased from or sold to either country. So no matter how you balance the trade deficit that does not make money that the government goes. Oh shit, man. Look at all this money. We got now. Right. The wall. Yeah. It paid for it self. No, it goes to the company consumer if anything is the one paying for it. So it's still coming out of your pocket, the Texas. Yeah. So again like, and that's what's really mind blowing to is like by any stretch of the imagination. This doesn't actually function as in a way to create revenue for the wall. Right. But anyway, that's where we're at. So, you know, I guess so maybe he'll like scoop into the emergency relief funds. Rougher disasters and stuff. Yeah. Build the wall. And I mean if he declares an emergency. There's a chance that by the time. You're listening to this the walls already been built because I mean, you know, it's an emergency. And all the drought. Get that thing up. All the drugs was pouring in depending what he makes out of California, you could just burn right down. Yes. That's true. But then we'll be no FEMA money. If you don't get your act together. Reagan those motherfucking leaves the other thing is to CNBC was saying that if the shutdown goes for another two weeks, the cost to the US economy would exceed the price of building the wall. So like if if we hit this thing for two more weeks, the economy will take a six billion dollar hit. And he's asking for five point seven damn. So like at some point like even by that math. Usually like, yeah. This is a terrible idea because I already just fucked the economy by six billion. And now I'm asking for another six, but again that doesn't matter because Ann Coulter told him this will be the end of his presidency. Yeah. It's all rhetorical. And just you know arguing. That's rattling around and. Real with real world costs. Yes. And that's the thing that is. So like baffling, you know, like putting people out of work. It is not an a goal sheeting tool. Bright. You know, what I mean, it's, but whatever you're holding people for hostage that have nothing to do with it just rice, just like pure? Well, these people are in pain, and we're going to say, it's your fault. Right. And then also, and I think in his mind he thinks that people who work for the government are all partisans or something where it's like, well, most of them are Democrats anyway. So when a lot of people are like yellow, I'm an air traffic controller who are suing right now because they're like this is a danger to air travel or the FDA not being able to inspect food and things like that. It's it's more than just people being like, anyway, whatever well here government played at voted for Trump ELO. Get all right. We're going to take another quick break. And we'll be right back..
