This is a habit. This is a new normal. the has been established. People are watching more and more online. Video is becoming. The medium of choice for communication on top of that youtube tubes algorithm for search engine optimization has gone bonkers. It's incredibly incredibly sophisticated. If you search a term on youtube not only does it search for you know the titles and the descriptions and the comments for those terms it actually knows when somebody actually says those words on the video and will give you a result of based on that. So if you're asking me you should go bullish on video this year. Two thousand twenty one. You should have a video content strategy whether it's a weekly series whether you're running webinars whether you're doing live or recorded video with youtube channel the players that you wanna tap into what people are already doing instead of force people into something that you like doing her new like consuming you're like producing it's never been cheaper.

It doesn't have to be talking heavy. It could be interviews. You could be reaction videos. It can be collapse as long as it's entertaining. It's engaging it's informative. People will watch trend number three and this one's a big one and it's gonna affect a lot of businesses and you really should start looking into how you can adjust your business to your website. Accordingly and that is privacy and security. This has been something. That's been percolating in the news for some time. This is particularly important when it comes to the way you are going to be advertising to your customers typically if you want to run facebook ads for example you have to put what's called a tracking pixel on your website this facebook to know when somebody's on your website so they can serve them ads on facebook and also allows them to track conversions. The issue is that data gets an owned by facebook. And a lot of it is some information that a lot of gonna wanna share like we'll computer browser on their location. If they're signed into facebook they know a whole lot more. Even you know who they are their likes are wants. All the interactions. They've had on facebook and basically facebook contract this person as they're moving around the internet and this is becoming more of a problem is becoming more of an issue because feel realizing wow. I'm being tracked We started to see this a couple of years ago with the cookies. Message that you see for gdp are people say. Oh the cy has cookies. And it's a way for us to track and people just ignored it and they're just click. Okay things are going to get a little bit. Hotter apple has already announced that in their next ios update for was fourteen. They're going to have actual pop-ups actual System messages from the operating system telling the user telling the person with the iphone. Hey this site has a tracking pixel. Do you want to be tracked. And it's actually quite a statement. It's actually something you really can't ignore. You have to say yes my movements or no. I'm paraphrasing of course. But the point here is that the privacy issue of tracking people is becoming more and more a- battle and obviously apple is going because their brand is all about privacy and security and boy do they have a market share so a lot of your users a lot of people that use iphone. You know if they're use. Iphone are going to see this message on your site. This means you can't have a tracking pixel and you're gonna have to think of ways to market your business you can. Of course run ads without attracting pixel. But you can't track conversions. Which makes it really hard for you to be able advisor ads. Which then begs the questions. Should you run ads. So this is something you need to keep an eye on and you need to plan ahead already in our business. We're trying to move away from paid advertisement or paid acquisition where customers into long term long tail content marketing whether it's a blog whether it's videos whether it's youtube whether it's partnerships with as their affiliates. The point here is that we want to own the traffic. We ought to be able to rely on our own content to bring us a traffic and not use. Third party apps to advertise. This is a big shift. It's not easy. It's not just facebook. Google or anybody else that has any kind of pixel on your site or requires a pixel so that you can track conversions so if you use paid. Acquisition us paid ads on lincoln on facebook on google. You may want to think of other ways to bring in traffic at least wean yourself off of the a bit because it's not going to be as effective as it used to emmy even get more expensive so there you have a guys three trends to look out for twenty twenty one. Get on top of this and be ahead of the game.
How often should I increase my rates?
"So doug asks on cuny wednesday. How often should i increase my rates. Last time doug increases rates it was all over eighteen months ago. So it's in my opinion time to do so. I actually think the maximum time. You should wait before you increase. Prices is eighteen months actually. I think you're just at the point where you really really really should be increasing prices. Especially if you're doing regular work this whole time the value you're giving your customers day in and day out now project after project is getting better and better every day and therefore you should be charging more for the increased value. I want to address A little bit of doug's of raising his prices he does own a ternary his existing customers. Ona discourage them from working with him again. I want to tell you from a customer's point of view. Who hires a lot of freelancers. That hires a lot of employees. If i work with somebody who delivers who. I come back and work with again and again. My biggest concern is not really them. Increasing the prices. My biggest concern is that they're not gonna be able to do. The work might have to find somebody else. That's really my worry paying a little bit more in order to get the same town. Does he get the consistency to get what i expect. Is a very very small price to pay. Many people. Don't realize that from a company's point of you from our point of view consistency is so important knowing what you're gonna get Having expectations and having them fulfilled this is incredibly valuable them so they don't wanna let that go and if you say hey My prices have gone up by raise. Gone up it's not out of this world. You know this is normal. Anybody who believes the service or create any kind of content. You know musician makes more money today than they did. Three years ago because they've gotten better as a musician or an athlete or any kind of professional. Like i mentioned a doctor lawyer. A service provider plumber and again from my perspective as somebody who's hiring somebody to do a service. I'm okay with paying more. If i'm getting good work done. I actually found that higher rates are not discouraging to actually things. I look out for actually want somebody who charges a bit more for example. Your website developers. Somebody comes to me and says hey you know. I charge eighty dollars an hour. You know that might seem expensive. But that person charges eighty dollars. An hour is experienced. The know what they're doing and they're probably going to be able to complete the project faster more efficiently And more accurately than somebody who's charging maybe half that forty dollars an hour depres is going to take a lot longer is going to have a lot more roadblocks and may not be able to do the project as well as somebody who is charging much more so sometimes you actually save money in the long run and serious buyers who aren't so price sensitive are the kind of customers you want to attract so in the long run increasing. Your prices are really going to help you. Increasing your rates so minimum increase their prices every eighteen months. You can even do it every year. But that's kind of my recommendation chain a year eighteen months now how to do this well. It's very simple the next time you engage with customer you can just mentioned it. Hey by the way last time this was my rate since then i've increased my rate. It's currently this over this project. It's going to cost x. Amount of money and stop talking or stop writing a lot of people that go on and on. Is that okay with you. I hope that's okay once you is that okay with you. Ask a question. Is that okay. That is opening up a negotiation. Because they can say well actually you know if you just say it as a fact. This is my right now. This is how much it cost now. And there's no question at the end of it people gonna be like okay. That's what i gotta do now. Many service providers have done a to type pricing strategy to. I think is really good Actually increase the prices for new customers at one rate and recurring customers or a returning customers than others. So for example they'll take their rate in the increase by twenty percent. That's the new price for new customers so people that don't know any better. You know know your first price. Best the price they know and four returning customers. It's fifteen percent and you can mention this to your returning customer. Because a hey buy. New prices are twenty percent higher. My new rate is such and such but I can give you a return customer discount so it will be so so and so it'll be only fifteen percent more the shows that you respect loyalty and appreciate their business and then hey you're giving them a little something special. How much should you increase. Will it depends on how often you increase your rates. Let's say for example you're increasing. Every year i would say no less than five percent and no more than twenty percent any more than twenty percent. Twenty five thirty It becomes a dramatic jump. This is why it's more Advisable to increase their prices every year rather than waiting every two or three years because then the jumps are going to be quite high but even fifteen or twenty percent increase may not seem too high but will make a big difference for you for all your clients so say for example. You're alary fifty dollars. A twenty percent increase is only going up to sixty dollars but across all your hours across all your customers. It makes a significant difference now. One of the things i recommend is when you're delivering the change of rate to are turning customer. You can offer them to lock in a longer term package for example to have you on retainer so say for example you say hey. My hourly rate is now a hundred dollars. is usually increased my rates every twelve to eighteen months. But if you'd like you can lock in this rate for the next two years if you want to. But you'll need to commit to a certain amount of hours on retainer month so you might say i need to have ten hours on retainer every month. That means a thousand dollars every month. That means a twenty four thousand dollars for thirty two years and this can just be a retainer Four any kind of work that they need to do Maintenance work update work and then anything outside the retaining hours you can charge them early at the current rate and people that like to work with you would like to lock in a great rate that they can have and have predictable pricing for the next couple years. This could be done in a very low pressure just by the way. Here's something that i offer and you'll be surprised. How many of your customers. We'll take you up on it. Because people like to save money. People liked to lock in a discount more on today's cuny wednesday but before that. Let me love to sponsor support for today.

What i take it would. Would you take it as is that. I believe we will move higher in time. I also believe that. We'll get some vicious pullbacks This is up. This is a very very volatile market.

"Apple shares. Were up a little over six bucks on tuesday. If you wanna know why look to the land of the rising sun the globe and mail out of canada which is not the land of the rising sun highlights a report from the japanese business. I nikkei that says apple is upping iphone production in a serious way headed into twenty twenty one. According to the globe and mail's take the cupertino company plans to manufacture up to ninety six million iphones in the first half of twenty twenty one a nearly thirty percent year on year increase going to strong demand for its by g handsets.

AirBNB and DoorDash set to go public in massive IPOs
"Two big players in silicon valley are going public this week. The food delivery company door dash is set to begin trading this morning after pricing. It's offering overnight and the home sharing company. Airbnb will begin trading on thursday with an expected price range of fifty six to sixty dollars a share the coronavirus pandemic through both of these companies loop this year so to put these. Ipo's in context for us. We turn to our markets reporter. Maureen farrell marine. Thanks for joining me. Hi thanks so much for having me. So my understanding is that the pandemic really took a toll on both of these companies can use for minus. What we've been seeing the sure so airbnb took a much sharper. Toll on at the outset was sort of a rippling around the world. In february and march airbnb bookings really decreased buried dramatically. They lost almost eighty ninety percent of revenue within a few weeks as people just really stopped. Traveling stop leaving their homes jordache. The effect was less dramatic. Either there's of course things that businesses. We're gonna have to do to adapt but it took a a less dramatic toll and they've had a. It's really help their business and really sort of a tailwind for door dash and yet both of these companies revealed profitable quarters in their ipo filings are their struggles over or are there still risks associated with investing in these companies. So airbnb you know after that initial drop off when the fate of the business looked really you know in peril. Potentially they raised a lot of money. They really kind of revamped their business and sort of change. If you went onto airbnb they started to see that people were traveling again but in different ways by may and june of this year they were doing a lot more local stays they want to stay in homes or places by themselves not connected. There's fears of hotel still but people want to go to. Airbnb is eventually after having a really tough you months. They've had a nice rebound and that's really sort of helping them going into the ipo. As you said they haven't profitable quarters. Jordache has had just really an incredible run up in its revenue. Different risks for each of these companies airbnb. Real questions of what the next quarter or two could bring you know as the pandemic looks like it could get a lot worse than the near term until the vaccine is really rolled out the world. I mean cities are going back into lockdowns. Country is so we'll that once again. Just really stop travel for a while. It's unclear so there's an expectation that could be bumpy for a little while for airbnb but there's also an expectation that once people start traveling again it could. Their business could benefit even more dramatically. Jordache kind of the opposite questions of you know. They've had this really incredible growth trajectory this year. Will it continue a once. We go back to whatever the new normal will be. After the pandemic will their growth reaches slowdowns. I think that's something that investors are wary about them. But i mean there. There's a lot of excitement around. Just their numbers now and Nash the next couple of quarters so sounds like a pretty turbulent year despite the ups and downs both of these companies both door dash. An airbnb have pushed forward with plans to go public. Why is that. And how could going public benefit these companies. Well for both of these companies. They'll be raising a lot of money in their. Ipo's they'll be raising billions of dollars. They put it on their balance sheet and it also gives their employees and investors a chance to sell shares once as a publicly traded stock. But they're also going into what's been one of the hottest ipo markets. We've seen in a really long time. Especially companies that are considered tech that are showing growth even showing some profits both of these companies investors seemed to be racing into them and so both companies have raised their price targets for where they expect to price the ipo. They've come in much higher than i think anyone could even fathomed earlier this year. So a couple of things there. I you mentioned that we're in the middle of this red hot ipo marquette. Can you kind of conceptualize that for us shores in the first place we're seeing more in terms of volume agreed greater amount of volume already. It's far exceeded the previous high point. The record was set back in one thousand nine hundred nine at the height of the tech dot com boom and this year already. We far surpassed that number so companies on us. Exchanges have raised more money than in one thousand nine hundred nine the previous record but then just across the board. I mean so. Many different companies are going out there and many companies have done. What airbnb of done. They've been gone out to investors investors have talked to them about where they might price the stock and they keep on raising it and then it goes out and starts trading and we've seen companies just over a couple of weeks over a month triple in value. The investors are just seem really ravenous to get into these new companies and also. I mean this comes along with a backdrop of stocks being a record highs and continued. Hit new records this year. Got it and you also mentioned that jordache airbnb will be able to give their investors and employees a chance to sell their shares. This might sound like a bit of an obvious question but what does that mean. An and why is that significant here. Both companies have had an incredible run up in value so investors at some point want to cash in and sell their shares. So at least there's a public market for them to do so. It's a lot more tricky in the private market. There's just sort of set times it which you can do it and same thing for employees. I mean a lot of these employees especially at airbnb which has been around a few more years than jordache. They've been at the company for many years. They've had their stock options given to them. Now they'll be in a position to sell the stock options and at a lot of tech startups. It's a sort of one piece of the puzzle that you take bet on an early stage company in you build your career around it and you hope for this day. If you're an employee at some point that will be accompanying an airbnb is case. You know that could be valued over forty billion dollars. You can get the piece you sell your shares and sort of cash in on what you've put into the company in terms of your time and efforts so as we've said doordash is gonna start trading today and airbnb is gonna follow tomorrow. What are you going to be watching for day of for each of these companies. I think it's just going to be interesting to see how they priced it. If they know there's a question underwriters. Wanna get the price right and by that means you always want to see the stock. Go up in the public markets or else it really can sort of sheet off of itself if the stock goes down the first day of trading it gets like there's a nervousness in this case. And there's such euphoria rambled companies. It would be pretty shocking. They priced it such that. They dip below their ipo price. So if they do go up there's also a question of how much they go up because as we said both companies price the night before they start trading and ideally. You want the sock to go up a certain amount but not too much then. In that case it means often taken. The company left money on the table could have raised more in the public markets to fund their business going forward so there's the sense of a kind of ideal pop in the ip on the first day as maybe ten to twenty percent anymore than that companies have left money on the table investors if they're selling shares employees below. That is a very a much worse problem to have if you fall below the stock price your ipo price on the first day of trading.
Making the Best of It
"This is podcast number. Two seventy two. And i'm gonna call it making the best of it with a making with the little apostrophe at the end because when we're all living the lives that were living right now during times of corona. It's like mike and the best of it. We got to put an accent to it right anyway. So this is making the best of it and a couple of things before i get into it. I do want to remind you that if you would like to be a patron this is not a patron interview. Strategy session like we've been doing Thank you for the great feedback. On those i love. I love just have an opportunity to talk to people. And i also love hearing from you guys how it helps you just to hear. The strategies applied in different situations Your situation is unique so getting to hear the same principle applied in different situations just helps it to sink in more and make it easier for you to apply it to your house anyway. I love hearing that from you. guys I have really enjoyed those doing those. There's going to be a lot more. Don't worry but i'm gonna talk real quick this week about making the best things because oh my goodness you guys anyway. But i did want to let you know i did. Just set it up if you would like to. I said where you can do. An annual membership for patriot. I know there's some people who are like you know what i prefer to do. One check so that's like. I'm assuming sixty dollars for the year if you'd rather pay all at once and join for a year. You do have the option to do that which you know. It's one of those things where it could be easier f- to ask for this. As a christmas gift the only issue is that it then renews on that same card. And so you don't know but you know what i mean like if if you've been thinking about it and you've been thinking you wanted to join maybe that will make it an easier decision for you. I'm kind of that way. Like i'd rather just say okay. I've got this money right now. I'm gonna spend this and that's going gonna be You know. I don't have to have a monthly charge anyway so that is an option. Now let you guys know that you can go to patriae on dot com slash. A slob comes clean. If you don't know what that is. This must your first podcast. But it's basically i call it my kindred spirits and it's Several different things. First of all You're getting the show. And that's that's ultimately what you're doing is supporting the show that comes to you free of charge every month and in comes to tens of thousands of free of charge every month but it also is a just a way for us parts show and as a perk of doing that. One of those perks is a super secret. Facebook group We're just full of truly lovely people who support each other and earls speaking the same language like they're speaking my language of cleaning and decluttering and organising so that you know i know there's a lot of decluttering groups out there and i think those are great but the advantage of this and the reason why it's a perk of a patron of the show is that you get to bring up your unique situation and everybody's speaks in this language of clutter thresholds and the beauty benefit of less and better and all that so you know the the criticism isn't there of oh or or getting thousand different ideas thrown at you instead. It's hey we will help you work through this situation or give you perspective or remind you of the things you already know because you've read the books and you've listened to the podcast but it just comes from that perspective and it gives everybody just a place to kind of like what i used to do on the blog. When which i mean. I still do to a degree but especially in the beginning when it was just like okay. This is what i'm dealing with today. High gotta work through this situation and get through it. You know a lot of people just do that. They just post like hey. This is my before picture of my dishes. And i'm hoping to post a after picture and a little bit in the comments you know whatever to anyway. It's a great group lovely people and that's also who the who gets to apply to do the strategy sessions here on the podcast so Again that's patriot. Dot com slash slump comes clean. All right so let's talk about making the best of things so back in march april may. Oh my goodness which seems like such. A long time ago i would do podcasts. Kind of deal with what was going on in our situations at that point And i would say things like. Oh i hope this podcast is irrelevant soon and you know and i would try to keep it very. Not just corona time specific. You know what. I mean like. I would try to talk about things and be like well. This can apply anytime. But here's how it kind of angles into what we're dealing with right now. Y'all it is the end of november. I mean by the time you listen to this here in the us. It will be thanksgiving day. And it's is not over and i i'm just i'm done with pretending like okay. Well this'll be irrelevant. And i do hope. This'll be a relevant soon. But i also let's just in where we all are right now because this is crazy i also know that different places in the world are different. Different places in the united states are different. As far as what exactly you're dealing with but but this is a worldwide thing like we. We're all dealing with the same thing. We may be at different stages if things we may be having different issues but the core thing is that this holiday season is going to be different than any in my entire lifetime.
Google Photos now charges, so what to do?
"Dot com slash talking. You may have heard many people ranting this week about google which chains its plans for google photos for five years. Google has told us. Hey upload everything for free and the will not charge you well now that they've got four trillion of our photos. They change their mind on that in june. It's going to start charging a minimum of the dollar ninety nine per month. Probably a lot more for folks to be able to upload and access their photos on google photos. i'm mad. I assume you are too. And i'm not gonna use google photos anymore. I'm done the question for many people is so what now. Well let's run through the options. Amazon photos is probably the next best. Step anybody paying one hundred and nine hundred dollars. Yearly for prime membership to get the faster shipping and entertainment also get free unlimited photo storage now. Amazon photos is not as easy to use as google photos. It's not as easy to use. His icloud for prime is a good place to go. My recommendation though is created albums. So that you'll be able to find the photos. Don't just throw everything up there. Apple icloud over. A billion of us have iphones. And we're taking zillions of pictures and we're getting next from apple all the time saying that we've run out of room They can do something about that but they don't want to because they want to sell you this online storage program which starts at only a dollar fifty gigs. Which is really tiny. Three dollars for two hundred gigs or ten dollars. Monthly for two terabytes. I've got forty terabytes on my desk. So that shows you where i'm at. I don't know about you. But i do not like getting nag messages from apple. So i'm not an icloud. Fan dropbox very simple. They're not they're not trying to sell you advertising. They're not trying to sell you other products very simply ten dollars a month for two terabytes which is great microsoft microsoft. Three sixty five seventy dollars a year for one terabyte which is not enough but you also get access online access to word excel outlook and powerpoint back to google. Here's how much. Google charging ten dollars a month for two terabytes or fifty dollars monthly for ten terabytes. And don't forget that your storage also includes g mail. Google docs google drive all of it. I believe that my g mail is forty gigabytes. And i don't have the years to be able to sit there and start deleting like a madman. So i pay and i'm not happy. The best deal in town. Best deal in. Town is smug and flicker smug mangas aimed at pros and photographers. Who are really into it. And flicker is for the general. Crowd flicker is sixty dollars a year. Unlimited photo storage. Smug mug starts at fifty five dollars yearly unlimited photo storage. So again apple is and twenty dollars. A year for two terabytes smug magas fifty five dollars a year with unlimited photo storage. Does the best deal in town. They need to do a better job of letting people know about this. Now if you don't wanna do online storage there's always hard drives. That's good and bad. You get a lot more room on a on a traditional spinning disc car drive but they will eventually fail. You can pick up an. At drive for about one hundred fifty dollars
Happy Halloween, Steve Saturn! - burst 04
"We had an eventful weekend. We did. We got a lot done. Tell Buddy tricks he's trying to tell everybody what we did this weekend. Celebrated Archie. wa-was fifth birthday with a zoom dog. COSTUME CONTESTS PARTY TO SAY that. Just. It, was nice to see. Everybody was nice. Yeah. Was a nice excuse to see family and the kids seem to enjoy themselves. I thought it was appropriate that on the little kids was the one who won the actual dog costume contents I. Think we're GONNA open it up to everyone next year not just dogs. No I think he was excited to be the best dog was he was something about that it was a very good cost to. What was it again he was shadow from the sonic the HEDGEHOG Games. Sure. He's very into sonic. That's awesome. So it's good and that's why I did it was just to have everybody together. I got admit I wanted to perform a little bit. So thank you. Excuse I mean it's Halloween time. You know 'cause we're usually very very busy at Halloween. are sadly this year because of the virus. You're not I think people understand like people that work in haunted houses as soon as October hits, it's Halloween like all the time. So soon as September heads yeah. The End. Depends on how much you're working on the actually putting a haunt together though you know the people who are in charge and running those places you know they get started in the middle of summer. Yeah. You're not in gear by July. You're going to be so far behind GONNA have a rough year. Higher. filthier there were. Some drive-thru haunts you want to go through a drive through haunt picture maybe. Just a touch your car better. Not I know I want because I know how bad corn Syrup is for paint jobs on cars yeah. I don't know. Excited about that I? Mean I guess if they did it like, Hey, ride style where like no one actually comes up to the car and touches it. That's not how they roll at the Bates Motel. They come right up to you. The can't do that now because. I WanNa, hit any actors with my car. Obviously, you would be going at like that's the thing it's like you drive your own car seven directing you have you sign a thing where like if you run over one of the actors You. There are. Lots of drive through entertainment. Nobody thinks about those things. Nobody's foot gets run over. Yeah. That's a big deal. See working on a house we're used to like chaos happening because it's Halloween people are drinking insure. End when people are scared they first reactions, I mean I've had some pretty crazy experiences haunted houses with people and their bodily fluids you know. It was someone you're going through with no somebody. I several people that I was they were the patrons I was. We made them pay their pants. Yes, that's good I. Guess. Not for them, for them. Because then there's a puddle after deal with hit. Yes. I've been things like people have hit me. So it's like someone would hit me with their car. I've been kicked been headbutted really. Did, did he get escorted out? Yes sees what happens when you hit on actors new new spend sixty dollars for nothing in. You have to leave I mean to his credit I was towards the end of the haunts. Through most of us, we just saved US what he wanted to go out with A. Give me a nice head to remember and by it sucks. I mean it was right. All those people are. Sometimes. I would break and when people were really drunk or if I was really like afraid, they were going to hit me I would break character and be like you pay to be here right? Like you paid for this experience. Yeah. I. Don't know if that's GONNA deter them though. Well then I also like go get security. Just, drop character, and that's my are tip to any hunters that are listening have like escape doors in each scene, somebody can duck out. In don't keep. Your weird voice dreicer. So they know it serious drop then be like that's not cool. No one's going to be hitting anybody this year. GonNa be going through any haunts this year there's there's not. That I. Know of unless there. I mean I'm sure there are some L. Some of them are open. I'm seeing the one instagram and I'm like, how does that work I mean a place that is that when? I was there. It was hard to breathe pre pandemic because it was in a underground place with no ventilation. Would actually help in that situation you. Could stay in that area for a long time. Zone does actress I'm thinking about the actors I mean the actors there every night with all these people coming through. One person to go through man it's like it's all the you know you're essentially an essential worker at that at that. Really. Haunted houses are like extra terrifying this year because you could die if you got co did. Any one of those professions that people have where there is a steady stream of strangers say that five times fast did it again steady stream of Strangers Alyssa? Coming through you know like, where like like people who work as any kind of customer service job? Any kind of restaurant any kind of supermarket. Like literally, you're just standing there all day long with Rando, people coming through my heart goes out to all of them. Yeah. We've been really thinking about people that have to have to do like especially the grocery workers and stuff like that. They were there from the beginning dealing with us and it's really it's scary and it does make me realize the things that I have and one thing I wanted to do and I brought you on was just to say thank you so much. I'm so glad that I am quarantined with you. We're very lucky to have the situation that we have I, I've. Heard you're working you've been working very, very hard. So many people out there who are who are working so hard for. For whatever they have like, I feel for all the people who don't have a steady paycheck coming in all the people who are struggling through this time you know especially with all the crazy stuff beyond just colbrad going on in the world. With I just wrote it this weekend. That was something that got done. It feel. For about an hour and a half. A lot of now who had to stand in line, but everybody had their masks on. One person got turned away. There was one person who walked up without a massacre. US older woman and unfortunately she she made kind of a stink about it instead of going to get her mask. By reducing, she acted like a Karen. Oh Now Karen status she was just very a lot of huffing and puffing, okay she had to walk back to her car to get her mask. They're keeping themselves in check now I don't know maybe. I. You know I haven't really cross paths with many Karen my time. No. White man was I suppose when you're well, I think the only time that we would run across them as when we're working in retail right when I was working at best buy for example, there is a good amount of because they see you as lower status when they are accuster on your employees a retail store, it also is the scenario. There has to be like a perfect storm of situations to I'll tell. Merge I was so guilty of it when I was younger. I try to work. Well. Here's what he did. I would go like, say to my hot topic to return something if they'd be like, oh, we can't really take this. It'd be like look I could go get my mom who's at boss cavs right now. Little Carrot Junior. Or we could just do this and your day will be so easy. Karen though is it I mean like my mom all when she wanted to she when she wanted to refund you better believe like my mom once we had.
Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access Review
"We're here talk about video games and food and walls speaking of the things that all of that together. Baldur's gate three early access a lot of lot of if you watch the quick look if you have some is stuff, maybe skip the first ten minutes of that thing because get some eyeball business going on there. Abbey played some abby watch cut scene I'm talking about. Yes I do I did play gate three and I really like it and I want to play more of it, and also I'm bad at it and I don't understand it at all. You. Get a chance to touch this Baldur's gate three. Not. Just yet I did. The city although the So Boulder Dr Larry, suspect you have had a chance to jump into it negative. Baldur's gate three not unfinished early accesses what they technically all this stuff available on steam a stadia, and but there's one more and I can't remember what it is. EPIC. Long I been played it on steam playing on Steam Gog. God you're right. Yes it has got. With Cross, eaves I believe. That's Nice So it's early it's early. It's an early access game buyer beware and one I will say out of the gate here is if you are interested in CRP Jesus my for you if you're interested in dungeons and dragons fifty dish in this might be for you if this is like I'm going to check out with all the talk is about this. Maybe sixty dollars a bit much to get into it now and and do that stuff because saves might not come over when the thing goes one point. Oh, they're they're saying probably at least a year out from that as well. Think they say around twenty, twenty, five hours in this. Early access build and it is. Fairly tutorial free. So yes I. Agree with that there is really no hand holding at all I. Keep Picking up other friends who then join my little party. So the how the game works is very much like dnd like you're going in a little bit of role plan then you're like fighting people but occasionally like meet other people and they can like join your party and your crew you get control of them and their powers I have no idea what this latest power still. So I'M GONNA to keep Avenue Shooting Arrow and hope that that works fine So. It is by Larry in studios the. Original Sin People demanding original sin to peel very popular. It plays a lot like those games. Yeah Abby saying you see you get up to four party members when they join your party the game doesn't have a lot explaining spell slots doesn't have a lot explaining cells spells. The hot bar for spells and items and scrolls is all mixed together in a way that is maddening that doesn't sort stuff by level or item, or so they'll have a level one spell like a couple of potions than maybe a bonus action and then a trip it just all spread out and like when you have a party member come in your, I don't know what any of these things are. So. You know it took me a while to just sort everything out get all my spells together. Again Luckily I'm of at least familiar enough with fission CRP to know what I think. What is going on here to sort all that stuff out that being said, some stuff is from fifth addition is implemented a little differently and kind of learning the. Stuff in the game. Took a little took a little while and I'm still kind of learning how they want me to play. I'm not playing like I normally would at a table of friends playing for the baby for better or worse you know I would be really annoyed if after every single attack for any character, they tried to move and roll a stealth check every two seconds at the table because that would wouldn't be held want to spend my seven hours of people rolling South checks but that's what I'm doing here and it's working for my game play. That being said okay. So the you can go watching unfinished to see what classes and suffer and it is not everything they're missing what I think the more interesting classes like barbarian. And she was pretty cool. T fling. Yeah. The the races that are in it, they're missing GNOME. They're missing half or. Missing Dragon born yeah. I will say all the racist they have seen very similar. It's like Elf like human half Halley. Yeah. Yeah cheap lanes are probably the most out there for what they have in in there now but it's fun. It's you know it is fantasy it is RPG. It is that computer RPG is not unfamiliar territory but I'm glad Larry in his doing it. I I was playing even though it's rough I have good expectations and high expectations and I have enjoyed it so far I think the writing too far has been fun I think the fidelity of it aside from any graphical bugs I think it looks really good. I think the Menus and the UI. Great I don't love the menus in the You I. Think they are very hard to navigate but so were they in original sin. So anything that's stuff is.
New Verizon home internet option
"I want to tell you if you live in an area where you have no high speed Internet available to you. Or. You have very limited pitiful choices. The improvement that I've said was coming is coming and in many places is now here. One. Example I wanNA give you is a big announcement from Barisal. That is offering two different types of Home Internet. One of them is specifically geared towards people in rural areas that have not had any choice of Internet provider typically except for those lousy legacy satellite Internet services, which are frightfully expensive and tight data caps in a very slow. Verizon is offering. A Internet service that will not be blazing fast. But you'll typically have speeds of somewhere between twenty five and fifty mvp us, which is fast enough for streaming. If you're a Gamer forget it, you'RE GONNA lose in gaming competitions, but for every day. Internet kind of activities Web, surfing, email, video stuff like that music you'll be fine. And Verizon is offering it. It forty dollars a month if use verizon for your cell phone, if you don't it sixty dollars a month. which is much cheaper. Than what people have been used to for any kind of Home Internet. Now there's a second one that. and. By the way, this is available in at least parts of forty eight states. Heavily concentrated again in rural areas, what you want to look for. Is Very. Wordy name but it's VERIZON VERIZON WIRELESS DOT COM. It's Verizon Lt e Home Internet. Then there's a very small number of people. Who are eligible for verizon's five G. Very fast home. Internet. and. This is an urban close mostly close in urban areas. It's a very fast Internet. And it is fifty dollars a month for horizon six. Seventy for people who just want the Internet from Verizon And T. Mobile's home Internet that. Is Fifty dollars a month everything you know have to be a t mobile subscriber. The coverage of that has increased dramatically if you go to T. MOBILE DOT COM look for their home Internet, you put in your address and they'll tell you whether or not. It's available where you are but this is a huge benefit for people. Who? have. needs to work from home or do some work at home have kids that are doing some amount of online schooling instead of in-person schooling, and if not had access to Internet at home, these plans now make that possible. And on your cell phone service itself. Metro by t mobile, which used to be called Metro pcs it's T. mobile's captive discounter. They have a new plan for five g service. For people switching and payers. So two people go to t mobile. Metro by T mobile. And remember not t mobile metro by T. Mobile. Confusing. And it's thirty five dollars a line. Unlimited everything. Except hotspot is limited to five gigs of month not a huge amount of hot spot on the five G. Network. If you need to five G. Phone, they'll sell you one for ninety nine bucks if you come to metro by t mobile from someone else. So you have a high speed plan unlimited everything thirty, five dollars a month per line. which is a very good deal and if you've noticed. I've had a number of deals over the last six weeks where the cost of. Say Plans Mobile plans whatever we call them now. Has, been coming down down down and for people who don't need a lot of data. The price point in the marketplace now is ten to fifteen dollars a month. So. Big Changes. If you're paying more than these kind of prices you need to look at my cell phone guide at Clark Dot Com to find the best deal for you or whoever you buy cell phone service with or if you're on a family plan, what is the Best Family Plan for you?
BNB, BTC & ADA All Poised For High's
"Had a bit of a bit of unlock yesterday, even it will not. Actually, found a little trade on bonnets. Yup a little one hour play and alarmed it up. This was a while goes ten o'clock Before bed actually and Yeah. I wanted to get. Fifteen hundred contracts or something like that on Bonnets Filling seventeen. Now it has run on to do well a one to one and you know I'd I'd have my first target hit. I am still along with tried united such a such A. Tiny position the toddler with, but markets are starting to move slyly bitcoin. Now, ten, thousand, seven, hundred, non different of course, low lost weight down to a low of ten, thousand, three, hundred and seventy-five up to the weekly chart right now there is another rejection candle it's not the most bullish candles in the most bearish channel everything I have said lost wake is very much still live to die tapping that I gotta get US above eleven thousand, two hundred really to see this trend continue. Progressing Hi this could potentially see US high low On the daily by Snyder's lawyers all loss week, ten, three, seven, five if we would break up now through ten, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty three that would be the first of the higher highs in this trend. Now, I will still hold out for eleven to or might be trading on the way off to that weekly wise well closed down but only one. percent closing at ten, thousand, six, hundred, seventy, four dollars represents by role as has been relatively Saad wise move onto a theory of knowledge is also had awake the didn't do all that well down one point full three percent again, not much really going on and what can the charts tell me well a guy on a break up above three seventy, one goal. That way we would have allies and I hire Hawk confirmed in there were three, hundred, fifty, four dollars and seventy three cents right now not looking too much is going on one of the big movies however has been next I'll pay of six point five percent yesterday closing the week out well off yet it was up closer to twenty four point seven cents up one point, eight, seven percent and today to the dot as well. It's up two point one, one percent where twenty five dollars and three cents at. Tell you what does inau speed of movement is just straight up in the air right now not really that tribal unless you're looking at boost trades in which case high. Be Onto something there. It keeps on pushing on the first autopsy tend to really push into that's uptrend as did break up through the high of twenty four point. Five cents. When they have a high low and I hire some extra thirty lodging it up more than in the US thus five. Come to Bitcoin cash look it sitting at two hundred and twenty two point. One five percents to die the loss wake down three point six percent closing at two hundred twenty, one dollars, five cents eight still remains one of the average shots out there. But I'll tell you what we get above two, thirty, four, nautical 235. and. We will have a high. At a higher hard to go with that. So beekeeping laugh that the wake last week we did see lot Quinn actually closed up. One point three full percent because the wake up at forty, six dollars and seventy three cents not so much more to speak of really on that John. A couple of weeks a couple of all sorts on that if we can get ourselves about forty dollars fifty, we will have a high low in the higher higher, the home market starting to look like this. Is Ever be as we can get ourselves above one eight. Hundred, seventy cents will have a high heart a guy with that. Currently, we're at one, hundred, sixty, three, thirty, I lost week we closed down five point six percent closing a one, hundred, sixty dollars and ninety seven cents not. Really to be honest with you there. While the NAS looking shots currently out there in play at the mummies cod Donna and the reason I say that is because we have a very clear potential. Day at potential, high or low, and that highlight comes in the form of two point, nine, seven cents I want to see a break above ten point seven. Ten point seven cents gives us a very clear high or low in high high, which will sustain hopefully progressed highs as progressive high highs and more upside lost weight would add four, point, three, six percent. We are starting to gain a little bit of momentum were non twenty, nine, three cents two point seven point four percent on the day to die dowse fires. Trends Guy Look bonds as one of those trends at ease in motion does look strong and the last couple of days is put on a good six six percent does. Comedy starting at Twenty Nine dollars, and twelve cents up point seven, three percent on the Diet was lost weight that I was impressed. We saw the week prior having only closed down point six, five percent but at one stage we were down. Twenty to twenty, I forget the without closing at twenty six sixteen. So very big rejection of those lows. Now Lost Weight, we saw ten point five percent gains placed on bond answers well, closing twenty dollars and ninety one sense. It's above twenty nine dollars right now, and it does look very, very strong. It is a market as I said that I've been looking for trading opportunities and there have been several now that was the one last night. It was another one this morning around that town I am monkey may have found an opportunity. There is one of. Those trade boost tries well, it's GonNa be there for you as well very nauseating market there on Bonnets I will do what she that throughout the waking for more opportunity
Amazon reveals their new cloud gaming service
"Bliss. Let's jump into some news William to an like an article that was pretty big news this week it was part of a broader set of announcements that the company made. This is from which fifty dot com and the article is. Amazon Reveals Cloud Gaming Service Amazon according to the article is going to offer a Netflix's style cloud gaming subscription service named Luna with select titles in four K sixty fips It'll initially be available on PC MAC fire TV iphone. And ipad with an android version planned for after launch You know this sounds a lot like everything else were seeing. There are some differences they will like. Amazon is going to offer its own controller like stadia did but players can use a bluetooth when the keyboard or mouse or Third Party, Bluetooth? Controller. If they want and if they do by Amazon's controller, it's only fifty dollars and it connects directly to the cloud service in the same. Way Stadium. Had, promised to but didn't et release. and the introductory price for the for Luna in the US is going to be six dollars a month. The only major publisher I saw. Listed at least as part of this announcement and this article interestingly enough was Ubisoft. Who was the big launch partner for Stadia and then seems to have lost faith in stadium because they started doing work with some other like cloud gaming company? It seems they're like the cloud gaming sort of. you know the the the everything that's cloud gaming there there seems to be ubisoft their front and center in terms of the launch part. We should we should separate. Think Games publisher should be trying to get his much distribution for their games as possible and others involved. Yeah. But I presume you saw benefits financially from being the launch partner like I. I bet ub saw I bet I don't think this was a hard business decision to reach as my guests removing SOx perspective. My real question is what was the Industry Conference Paul and how did you and I? Both, miss at were they spike the water with livestream games as a surface like juice because it is like there was some conference three years ago that like Apple Amazon Microsoft you know like like everyone was like a everyone was at and they're all like they laughed like well, we have to do this right now I'll tell you what it is was no business of sports podcast three years ago. And and the day Google got on stage and said, this is the future of gaming and I called it hot garbage and I called it correctly hot garbage not enough people were listening now now hold on Amazon though brings I think something a little different to the table and hear me out here. Could you see potential integration with all of Amazon's like home stuff right? Everyone has an Alexa. Everyone has like a A. Zillions of already set Alexa was in the controller or was that a joke. That's possible I. I saw that and I like did not verify it was system a that people are making off or if that was really how they were going to differentiate the controller because it's both plausible a good idea and completely implausible and a terrible idea at the same time. I just it seems. It feels like cloud gaming now is just a check box that the big tech companies have to put a check mark next to, and there isn't a lot of thinking around how this is any different. Because if you read the Luna announcement, it reads pretty much verbatim like Google announcement except with less with less sort of fluff. So there's no promise of the future of gaming. There's no negative latency. There's no they took that stuff out but other than that. It's pretty much a copy paste well, no, it's not though and this is really important the price right because. This is six dollars a month now. Sucks that they couldn't get it to five I. Mean I'm GonNa, start there like a real psychological break point they miss their but I trust Amazon is run their math, what this cost rate, and probably there's a certain amount of server space that this takes up but like. I think the offering is different at this price right because I think it's and I. Think this gets a little bit more at what stadium could have been. Right it's much more affordable. My understanding is it's not this rent to own model. It's just a straight up flat subscription. You've got the game streamed. Great Booby soft is a good launch partner for this because they would have what I would call a lot of mass appeal games like the assassin's creed games, for example, which I think translate well to this sort of thing of show me where there's no copy paste the William. To cut you off. But like this, all the assassins creed was in the launch stuff for stadia to. Yeah I think it was a decent partner there to the difference as the argument for the stadium launch was. Pay Sixty dollars to buy a game. You probably already have right and it's a worse version because it's laggy livestream on a concert. This argument is, Hey, you already have Amazon services you maybe you're curious to checkout watchdogs pay six bucks a month to try it out, and there's some other stuff here till and I think at that pricing, it also goes much more mass marquette I think somebody who isn't going to shell out sixty. For is willing to shell out I guarantee there's going to be price promotions. I title fray and Amazon is very good at that stuff to drive adoption. This is starting to be something like I could see you know forty five year old Atari Gamers who dropped out looking at and being like, yeah, those do look pretty cool. Being an assassin in Greece I'd like I this is this is a really big thing I believe is like. Inaccessibility driven offerings. Price is everything. The appeal of stadium was accessability driven without an accessible price which totally gated off making great games available cheaply, and without a fixed cost could that work as a second model? Yes and could it work as a longer term lease of life on yes? So like I do I think this is the greatest thing ever to happen in livestream subscription gaming. No that is xbox's game pass right like one hundred percent but could this work and could this grow into something else overtime
Amazon update: An indoor security drone! Round Echos!
"The show. Hey, it's Graham. You're listening to talking tech I, WanNa, fill you in on all those new products that Amazon introduced today, and unlike some of the other companies that come out with some new stuff and you say, like, how's it different? I don't understand. Well Gosh. Some of the stuff is pretty radical. Let's start with the ECHO speaker, which is now all-round. It looks totally different. There's a three new ones and they're all in the shape of the ball. You all know the ring video doorbell. Now there's GonNa be a ring security camera in your car. It's going to cost two hundred dollars. It will send you alerts via the ring APP. It senses a tempted break-ins drivers can get alive you and check in on the vehicle and surrounding areas. There's also a cheaper version without a camera selling for sixty dollars that will monitor for impacts, break INS, toes, and more but the ring product that I'm really intrigued about is called the always home cam it's an indoor drone. It flies all over the house to see what's going on. Okay Great I've flown a drone inside the house in it ain't easy. This drones GONNA fly automatically without.

My Husband's New Hobby is Harrassing People
"Corona virus arrived in February and my husband retired in May, like the rest of us he is in doing what he planned gone. Ernie thoughts of traveling attending sports events or picking up a job as a substitute teacher I worried at first about what he would do when he retired he doesn't Gulf or fish and has never had hobbies. But I didn't need to worry he's found a new hobby and it's consuming hours of his time. He is now harassing people. The other day he spent an hour on the phone with our Internet provider. He found out he could save twenty dollars a month by cancelling his current contract and starting out as a new customer by the end of their conversation. He had lowered our bill by sixty dollars the day before that, he spent three hours talking to the insurance company. When he got off the phone, he said I got our premiums reduced and there's no copay. Last. Week, we got a check for one hundred and fifty dollars in the mail. What's this check for I ass? That's from the class action suit. He said class action suit. Yeah. That's why I was on the phone. So Long I looked through our records and found out we were eligible for some money. Today I opened an envelope and a fifty dollar check fluttered out. That's a refund for overpaying our dental bill. My husband said I was on the phone with them for three hours I had to speak with four different managers before the agreed it was their mistake. At first I was irritated by his endless hours on the phone. But now I'm enjoying his hobby I like watching checks drift in but even better than a cheque is my brand new stainless steel oven. Yes. You heard me right I I have a brand new stainless steel oven. Are Old of and broke and we have a yearly service contract for appliance repairs. The service company sent out a repairman, but he needed to order a part only the oven was so old the part no longer existed. My husband got out the service contract and read all twenty six pages until he got to the fine print. Do you see this he jabbed a finger at a line of print the size of fire ants. I can't see it even when my glasses on what's it say? I, ask. It says, if can't fix our appliance, they have to buy a new one. I didn't believe even with his success ed acquiring checks that somebody would give us a free appliance. I was wrong. It took him six emails, four phone calls and some texting back and forth. But we finally got to pick out a gleaming new stainless steel oven, several more phone calls and the service company installed it for free. I think you wore them down I said. I thought this was his biggest harassment success story but there's more talked our daughter into buying a service contract with the same company. But when her washing machine broke, the repairman couldn't fix it after a month of going to the LAUNDROMAT and washing clothes outside in a plastic kids swimming pool she called. Dan Do you have any suggestions we've been without a washing machine for a month. Did you read the fine print of your contract? My husband said I think you can get a new washing machine give them a call. She called them but she was too busy to spend hours on the phone and her husband is more like me. He likes the tenacity in the stomach for the necessary blitz Craig phone calls. So my husband went to work only this time it looked as if success would elude him. They sent another repairmen out, but it still doesn't work. Right our daughter complained they said, I'm not eligible for a new one. My husband escalated the situation. He even stayed on the phone when we were taking our walks, you go ahead of me. He said, as soon as we headed down the sidewalk, I've got a manager on the line. This went on for three days and then our daughter called with good news. She had a new washing machine. I can't believe it. She said no washing clothes and the kids poll. Today. My husband is on the phone with the mortgage company. I don't know what they're talking about, but it's a long conversation.
The PS5 arrives November 12th and it starts at $400
"Yesterday Wednesday Sony announced that the playstation five would go on sale in North America Japan Mexico. Australia. And New Zealand on November twelve and elsewhere November nineteenth for five hundred dollars or the digital edition for four hundred dollars that matches the xbox series at the top end. But it's one hundred dollars more for the non disc addition. Many PS five games will sell for seventy dollars. Instead of sixty dollars, pre orders for the PS five are open. Now pre orders for the XBOX series Consoles Start September twenty
Xbox Series X and S Prices Revealed
"What do we? It has been for xbox. They finally announced the xbox series s we finally finally finally know the release date in price for both consoles. November tenth is on the next generation of xbox kicks off series x five hundred dollars series as three hundred dollars. A full two, hundred dollars cheaper digital only actually doesn't seem like it's that much less powerful It's basically. into. Four correct me if I'm wrong, it's not four K.. It's fourteen forty. The thrill leaning into the series s that's correct gets, but it can scale to four K. on your four K. TV and it plays media in four. K.. Wow, not video games. So are you surprised at the the two hundred dollar price difference between these two councils it makes the series s really really impressive and tempting I don't think it was something that that many sorta really hard core really engaged gamers like that super interested in this all the price in the specs I've seen a lot of people going to be like well, maybe. Yes. During the times, it's it's well suited to to kind of. Navigate for both kind of Gamers is a needs. If you want the upscale absolutely highest price edition, sure that that's an option. But at the same time, if you're on a little bit more of a budget seem super smart especially just enough in this landscape with twenty twenty it's kind of interesting route a because we know that you know most people don't have a four K. television they probably won't for A. While, and this will make you games look really good on your current television It's a next GEN system for thirty bucks I mean I think that's a really cool a really cool competitive move to make especially now that they have a subscription service to back it up and just a few other things you know xbox has going for it right now, what they don't have is a bunch of exclusive watch games. Held out this long, i. mean it makes sense obviously in the game of chicken but this does seem like one of its greatest selling points semi pun intended. So it's It's interesting that the sticking them less long and obviously due to a leak initially before they owned the news themselves but it's a like mixed. It's a huge differentiator and definitely makes the the deal between the two of them the most significant thing for Microsoft. The value proposition, right? Yeah. The five hundred dollar version two is still like that's kind of what we expected this for some reason it's is I think it's really smart, not the delay but that they kind of. are talking about they talked about the s price at almost the same time because like that's all people were talking about like we would be talking about the PS five versus the xbox price right now as soon as bs five comes out, but there's always gonna be this this three, hundred dollar one and their people don't have to get the of the full one. It's just it's just a really interesting move I can't think of a precedent for at. A financing option to right. So yeah. That's just like another consumer friendly option that is clearly the a big corner cornerstone point for their entire next-gen lineup. Yeah we should definitely talk about that. That's xbox all access which allows you to get in on next generation xbox for as little as twenty five dollars a month for twenty four months you that over two years and that also gets you. Game Pass ultimate to get more than one hundred access to more than one hundred games plus every mega first party game day. One you get. So it's actually it. It seems to be like a staggering deal especially if what if? Halo infinite had been there at lunch twenty, five dollars for twenty five dollars. You got the new xbox and Halo Infinite Right on day one, it's unbelievable. Clearly, there's GonNa be some of those games that you don't care about including every first party game and including EA Games. Now, like that's basically like a price cut like you can imagine that console is sixty dollars even cheaper than the PS five is because you don't have to pay sixty dollars to get a little infant. Yeah the price of that subscription. It's it's amazing. It's really really cool I. Want I want to circle back on really underscores something that Sam said about the xbox series S. The thing that impresses me so much that I think is so smart. That it really did focus in on resolution like if you have a four K. TV like we opie seriously consider the series. But if you don't, if you're either plugging that thing into a monitor or you still have to be like the fact that the series s is pretty compromise free and that really that extra power is only being used to push you know these extra forecast pixels and law resolutions. The Games will just as good. I think that was very very clever and very savvy and consumer-friendly Gosh I don't have enough positive things to say about like that being the point of differentiation between these two consoles and like like I still don't actually have a four K. TV every year every every Christmas. This is the year but then it's like well, then there's then there's other new tech and there's HCR government maybe I'll just wait one more year and so like I'm still chugging away ten eighteen. And You know. So it's like I'm one of US consumers like Sino. I've seen some people wondering like well. It's like. Well, you know we exist for a wide variety of reasons I think it's like seventy percent of people that have consoles don't have a four. K. TV. As you say often use a projector and people find that confounding. Confounding because it's not as great resolution like you can still get a four K. projector and I do and like you know I I have really good setup, but ultimately, it's totally lighting based. So if you're in a bright living room, kind of does not make for a great experience, but you can have a huge. Screen the biggest screen out of any. Huge. Fun. T to do most of your gaming on a projector. That's how you do pre pandemic yeah. Okay Now more committed to a TV. TV. Okay. So a five, hundred, x, three, hundred

It did provide the one to lay minimization risk viable viable hayes the big story from my point of view tonight. And look this could change remember. I don't remember if it was A Post that I put on my facebook. Or. If I told you in the PODCAST, actually remember to be honest. But I was talking about the fact that I like to say bitcoin move down into the ten thousand Rachel around that ten thousand area. said a high or low on that four hour timeframe, and then set a high a high and actual fact of in order to do that the ten PM candle did go down to a low of nine, thousand, eight, hundred, ninety one and look there was.

The Surprising Connection Between the VW Golf and the DeLorean
"There's a very solid chance that Georgia Jaro is the greatest car designer of all time. His genius was in his ability to combine amazing artistic creativity with practical engineering know how his designs are futuristic even fifty years later. But when he drew them, they weren't just concepts. They were practical blueprints. WHO's measurements were strictly proportioned to be something. A driver could actually use that combination of artistic innovation and practicality made Jaro one of the. Most bankable designers of the seventies and eighties all told his decades long career. He designed over two hundred cars totaling over sixty million in sales sixty million units. You've almost definitely ridden or driven a car that Gerardo originally designed I always confused by that sixty million because I was like that could be just the mark one Gulf in one year. That's like, yeah, that's the mark one golf if they sold them for sixty dollars. Yeah like not even they sold them for like three like. Yeah, yes. Sixty million units. That's nuts. That's like conservatively. A. Like a Billion Dollars Oh like billions I'd probably say more than that. Yeah. Long Story Short to jar continues to have a massive influence on automotive design but who influenced to Jaro? Born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, eight he couldn't come from a long line of car designers because cars hadn't been around for that long. Instead his father grandfather and great-grandfather were all artists who specialized in painting elaborate murals and frescos in the churches and palaces of Italy. Naturally Young Georgetta himself wanted to follow the family tradition and be a painter himself. However, real life intervened in the depressed post World War Two economy of Italy Mario Jer. Father recognized his son's artistic talent but wanted to make sure Jetta learned practical applications for his skills. Italy was no longer a country of churches and palaces that needed painting after centuries of tradition it was now being pushed into modernity by global forces of change. So as a teenager Ger, jetta was sent sixty miles north from Garesh CEO father's town to the city of Turin to study technical drawing and costume design. Strange Mix. Drafting table on one side of the room. One of those cool. Sewing Mannequins on the other yet no head no arms no legs just that torso the bus. All of his costumes look like little cars. For centuries, terrain has been a major cultural hub of Italy with centuries of painters opera, an architecture that tradition of creativity was alive and well in the nineteen fifties when Georgetta arrived to the city. It must have been an incredibly inspiring place for a brilliant teenage artist to be sent to study. Terrain also happened to be the home of the country's automotive industry which had thrived in the early twentieth century but had been knocked on its by World War Two with scoreboard alert Italy Kinda lost most importantly though Fiat was based in Teheran Fiat was the General Motors of. And as time went on, it acquired. So many of its competitors that a couple of decades later Fiat was practically the Italian auto industry. Have you guys ever seen the test track? They have on top of the Fiat factory yet so cool it's so cool. So much of success is simply being in the right place at the right time and for a young designer to Rin of the nineteen fifties was exactly that time and place by then the Italian economy was picking up and car manufacturing was a vital ingredient to the recovery. Meanwhile, Jaro was studying at art school during the day and studying technical design at night among the things he was drawing were cars and one fateful day jar sketches crossed the desk of Dante Giacosa Fiat's technical director. GIACOSA was the designer of the Fiat Five, hundred, a compact city car that would sell nearly four million units and cement Fiat's postwar dominance. He was impressed enough to bring Jaro, who had no work experience to that point on board as a junior designer at the age of seventeen. That's a gamble I mean that's. Amazing. What kind of drawings were you guys doing at seventeen? I actually had this cool skull that I was really cultivating through high school I was doing skull. I would draw zero. Skull. And the Greg Logo. Nice that's all you need. So we would probably work at We'd probably be doing designs for Spencer's sounds like. A. Jarrah started at Fiat during a golden age of the Italian auto and a big reason for the industry success was the increasing collaboration between the engineers and designers.

stabbed in the incident but survived August thirteenth a man was stabbed in the lower back and arm at liberty Avenue which street after getting into a fight with someone said his injuries were almost were also not life threatening then the question becomes how comfortable are people with being downtown do you chalk this up and say listen these are isolated incidents and there is some type of relation that's going on here between those two or the staff members in this Daddy's those who do the stabbing in those who get stabbed it isn't as though we just random attacks for no reason whatsoever so the thought is well you know one if that's the case I go downtown minding my own business I'm not doing anything I'm fine is this is going to have no impact on me going downtown others such potentially a bit of a different story I want to find out from you Anthony in Oakland welcome to KDKA radio and you know you down were you downtown yesterday yes I was I didn't see the stabbing but we can't we talk about this what maybe three four weeks ago well Mr McMahon came out of and there was an article written about how downtown out of control and the mayor has hit the fan and try to pull pull it if you remember yes you know the chickens have come home the wound down Powell it now is a very dangerous place what do you do you feel as though it's dangerous when your down there did

Anderson fell down and then defecating further stores all back is sold and it is this author's limousine liberal side stop well you know what a criminal has been the mayor said hello this is here let's hope I can do with this one thing at a time so on the issue of drugs the idea across the country is do not view them as criminals and instead they are people who are in need of some aspect of help it is this decriminalizing nature small amounts of marijuana the issue of them overdosing you're saying go back to where we're incarcerating people over this well if you didn't do it one time and and and and so we was okay then then why are you doing this behavior now which comes it is called now the one word about the you're not gonna be arrested all over the park wait for lunch time I course standards for and if you get into an argument our stance story if you feel like if you've got the legal issues what you need a president who's not going to tolerate people who bought it in standing up for the businesses what's more important derelicts or business owners you pay taxes the floorboards business owners you pay taxes in the customers who support them right one of the customers are afraid please wait for warmer all bowling ball downtown Pittsburgh and I now you need to change that image twice to the mayor who wants the family San Francisco mayor or New York mayor where you just looking at the way I just had a mix okay all enough for it one hundred percent correct in this manner try to belittle his comments I was surprised that he was willing to come out publicly as one who is responsible for the continued growth and attendance of so many I I activities within the cultural district that he would tell anybody and everybody who's listening by the way it's not safe to come down here and be a part of our activities well he tried it privately apparently with the mayor like I say once in nearly a lot in these level ties to the five who decided that no we will allow anything K. also whatever the hell so we did and so maybe we will get a police presence I have three more police on bicycles and walking the beat yes but if you're not moving these derelicts all of their standing upon a business you might want to work ten what's the point what I mean for god's sake we had a I am a woman right over the police one shoulder the idea of just moving them along this is all they're going to do is move from one block to the next block every couple of whatever it is with extremely offers a comes biases okay you can't be here any longer you've been here long enough male and so you're still not dealing with the problem here is moving at about from one place to the next okay good incarcerate yourself I did it no if you're investing money in this day I don't give these people the option of getting help are they will probably have to go to a corporation and because you just can't have what's going on down here now this was a little odd borrowing we decided this

And like the people that listened to me, and are like angry and have dirt under their nails and our ghetto, like me that, like love it like love it. They're making like report five six thousand dollars a month now should adds up shit adds up. And so, like, please think about all the cool stuff. That's out there learned. By the way, I know that's what's being pushed under throat ninety nine point nine percent of the time. So I don't even to speak to that. Let me talk to you about the point or one percent. That's not the internet is amazing like really crazy. Amazing like we. Can't we take it? So for granted all of us, including the smart ones in that have been part of it will look back on me. We're all grossly underestimating. What's. Actually happening. The internet is the middleman for everything it will suffocate everything all of in bookstores and taxi companies, they're just I everything what going to happen to mainstream media. It's all getting suffocated suffocated retail suffocated personal relationships suffocated real estate suffocates all getting suffocated. Which means you have you all the same accents, as anybody else you just do. It's just true. And the people in the middle that used to just be there, because of stablishment, they're going to have to adjust an actually bring value or they're finished and record, companies and book publishers, and real estate agents. They don't do a whole bunch once established. That's the truth they create distribution. But that's become commoditised. And so you need to understand this truth. Because when I look around here. Deliver forty fifty sixty years. What did you do it? Like, we got so much time. I get fearful when people are in their forties. You know, and I think like it's a young man's game like you're going to be living here for another seventy years technology is getting good. You're gonna be older than you think you've so much time. And everybody's in such a rush. They're in a rush, because they wanna prove something to somebody either their parents or the contemporaries, and I really liked to make it attractive to be like the person that. Listen. I think being a tortoise is cool because you get to win the fucking race. You know, maybe your mom or dad thinks you're loser right now. But like it be much better. If you won that to be instead of rushing into some dumb shit to make them think you're not a loser quicker. And that's all I see over and over and over again. And I just think that this conversation needs to be put in the system because look there's a big difference between making money and raising money. And we are become way too romanticized about raising capital, which has a need. And I believe in it, and I'm a VC myself, but. Everybody's defaulted into let me promise you something knowing, how to make money is always a good skill. Always. And I think it's time that we start having a bigger conversation of teaching people that, but everybody's too fancy too fancy. People fancy. Everybody likes to put founder in their Instagram profile like it means something. I could put basketball player in my fucking Instagram account doesn't mean I play in the NBA motherfucker. And so that's the problem right now..

So if you have activity at two in the morning, you can see oh, it's all car passing. I'm not worried about that. But if all of a sudden, you see maybe two in the morning, there's an animal maybe you need to know Arthur skunks out in my yard. So I don't wanna let the dog.

"So last night's episode we have to talk about this too. In Berge. Oh, and salute. Good. Can you guys just run us through what's up with the dock and what that process was like? Yeah, we are boy. This is a fun one. We had a lot of fun with that because we were, you know, we the guys kind of asked us to come up with converse, like conversation starters, like topics and questions for the for the focus group not to mention. Yeah, it's a brand new game. We've never played this game before, so we didn't really know how it was going to go or like the best way to possibly play it. And we, we wanted the marks the people strangers in the focus group like talk at length about topic. Yeah, we did it like, I guess we spent so much time thinking about the technical setup of the monitor in the room and the guys typing from another room that we didn't think about what the focus group will be doing. So we decided to I, it should be artificial. We got a real kick out of, yeah, we wrote a series of questions. We really gonna those earlier. Do you have the diesel. We, I mean, so if you think about these people being pulled in for focus group, they're getting paid what twenty dollars an hour. You you book the marks, sixty dollars for ninety minutes. You hate booking marks. Is that correct? Chase. Why? Why is that. The processes is a long, long process. It's just. I'm not gonna go into the process too far too, but what makes it? So what makes it so annoying for you? Just how unpredictable people are when they show up. And also when we run late, it's watching him. When we when we run late, it's just it's just a nightmare to have people that are trying to rush out and being built. People are building up in a room, and sometimes we get like fifteen twenty people that are fit and there for an hour hour and a half. Would you say that's the worst part of your job is like booking people in organizing all of that. No, I don't think so. I mean, it's it's got more enjoyable as we've gotten better at it. What's the worst part. I don't. I don't think there's a worst part. You're trying to predict who might know the show and stuff to ask directly. That's the thing you guys have all the time, which is interesting. The tedious process where we've, we've kind of fine-tuned a. Just how to vet those people out and we still do that survey. Yeah, we sent out surveys to the survey will have them pick like what are their favourite TV networks. And if anybody picks true TV, like, no, if they, if they say, what are your favorite shows? And if people do practical jokes, that's a big tell that would be. But if someone's like, yeah, I don't really have. I don't have cable. That's like a perfect person right. Yeah, that is sometimes not though sometimes not. Sometimes you want people that watch comedy central or watch like some TV and are kind of up on that stuff because people wouldn't watch TV time beyond what would want sign a release case. This is all brilliant. Yeah. The other thing too, is that the postings that we put up, a lot of people get flagged because they watch TV, but a lot of people get flagged because they've actually been on the show before we book them. Right. How do you figure that hard to track, right? Yeah. And a few times because people on Twitter, have a connection about it. Yeah. It's all a conspiracy. Yeah, there has been a couple of times where people have slipped through the cracks or just having filled something out, or I was one of those days. The guys are looking at this Mark and they're going scant, looks like somebody. It's an actor which show is gonna look like an. He looked like a guy from a very. And then it was on Twitter because someone had taken screen shots of like this guy from season one. And he was like in a crowd for different joker. I'm with shut down the show. When the guys are in the nursing home, there was there was an old person there who recognize south from when he did his like prison, like. Yes.

"Know let's have all these people who support us who can come to this meeting and, yeah will provide a bus for them to show up etc and they'll get you know whatever launch on the bus It's a little different for individuals. To be paid fifty or sixty dollars, to show, up just random individuals to show up put on a shirt and then two hundred dollars, to speak what some speaking points when you know, an. Energy says that, they had, no knowledge of this occurring But this, is at the end of the day money that came from energies pocket that paid for these actors and this is energy New Orleans this is a fortune five hundred company that is it's our regulated utility by the, council right so that's really that's the difference you know, I mean what was the point I was making about the transparency because. The really which all argue about is what you're going to allow them, to expense because they get a guaranteed internal rate of return is. A. Regulated, utility and, they turn around and. Expense having paid these. Actors and then they get, reimbursed to their rate structure and what they're saying what. Energy saying is that this did not have an impact on ratepayers which is something that obviously the investigators will take a, look into yeah well I mean that's good to hear if. That's the case now on the transparency side the council did change some of its rules regarding speak And what you have. To? Disclose when you, are speaking before, the council. And one, of the lines that you have a test to have to attest you is whether you're being paid and not that necessarily being paid as a bad thing for example there are lobbyists who are paid to come there, are representatives from companies who are paid to speak on, behalf of the companies that I think that's a good practice because how. Many times have you had people come up and testify and they have, a vested financial interests but they hold themselves out as being truly. Independent. Sure, well think, of how many different. Attorneys come up and. Talk on behalf of their, clients they're being paid to be there they're not just Typically disclose it as well especially especially on, the on the code issues that come before the council exactly so anyway so we added that transparency measure to the city council meetings as well but aside from the actor situation and that investigation there are other issues that we're dealing with with the energy and we've had several meetings on these issues already one has. To do, with the reliability and distribution system that is. All of the different Paul's and lines that connects them distributes our electricity throughout the city of New Orleans we have received a series of reports about how their distribution system is and really ill repair and the type of outages, that are happening in the city the majority of. Outages. Happening, in the city of New Orleans happened during fair weather and the majority of reasons. Why there are outages is because. Of a failure Now for a couple years now the council, has been asking for upgrades, to the distribution system for information about what's happening with the distribution system. The. The energy, New Orleans has not been very forthcoming with a lot of information and. Also our advisers have not thought that they ever, really stepped up to the plate to really do the necessary, repairs to distribution system until recently which was just. A few days ago we received an updated reliability plan after a recent utility meeting where the entire council was very disappointed by once again lack of information and lack of. Progress where now it appears that energy will be spending a substantial amount of money to fix, the distribution system and also hiring a consultant to help them..

"A month well that's sixty dollars a month now that the business is going to have to cough out so they're they're gonna look and say well incrementally we only have trees are prices you know nicole or ten cents or something but they have to raise their cost to cover that cost of business because at the end of the day they're not they're not going to say well why don't we instead of having a ten percent why don't we just go with them why don't we just have an eight percent profit margin and just keep all their prices the same that's not gonna happen no and part of that's because they've got employees and rant and they've got to pay their utilities and everyone sees the money go on the inside because you're standing in line someplace and you're like everybody online here spends twenty bucks and there's you know ten of us right here well let's two hundred bucks and there's ten more people walking in well it's really easy to see the money flowing in but it's hard to see the money going out because you gotta pay and please and rants and all these other costs that are there in the owners they take a risk shouldn't they get something out of that and i think they do and so it's just gonna be another cost now the nice thing is a brick and mortar business is now there's a level playing field with those brick and mortar businesses will that change how people shop i don't think so those same words by the way dallas were used by governor otter in travis just sent me this travis is our producer thanks for this article travis by the way so this was signed into law this year in march by governor otter he says you know on the internet sales tax deal we gotta put main street on the same footing as internet sales so he wanted to level the so the question of whether or not idaho will participate is a foregone conclusion this law already exists in idaho now it's on the federal level so the fact is as idaho's going to require online retailers to take a look at every idaho sale into send the six percent to the state of idaho when it comes to retailers they've been in a unique position because they are actually tax collectors for government entities right from a sales tax standpoint right just like employers are collectors of income taxes for for the federal government and the state government for all that matters based out of payrolls in so really this isn't really all that unheard of but the fact that some states have a lot of local taxes like take california for example i know everybody hates this but the reality is the sales tax in california believe is like seven and a quarter percent but if you go to los angeles county they add another tuna quarter percent to that as a local tax so imagine being an online retailer you're selling barbecue sauce online at of meridian idaho in your still in nevada your garage and somebody orders that adalah sanjay not only do you need this in california some tax money but you've got to send some to the county of los angeles and imagine if it was now down to an individual city in los angeles county that one in additional sales tax does that put you out of business do you think that's going to be the case dallas no i don't think it will because i think to the point that was made it and there's gonna be someone someone bright and quick is gonna or he's all probably already working on a piece of software to track this what how can you didn't come up.
