"WanNa be in the APP store they want access to billions of customers apple gets to set it straight they get to say what they want but spotify's argument is hey, you the customer stop being such a fan of apple and think of it this way if we leave the APP store and competition goes down, apple can raise their prices. Apple can do all sorts of things that could hurt you the customer that's at the core of the anti competitive argument is that if one particular group gets too powerful, you lose your options and if you lose your options. If historically, you end up paying more and so that's why the customer opinion matters and ask why this conversation is way bigger than fortnight. Now, before any of this plays out in court. I think it's important to note that the average fortnight player who's affected right now. The average person watching this video. Is going to be looking twice. At IOS, thinking as much as I might like that next iphone, this has the potential to. Give birth to some. Pretty. potentially. Damaging scenarios for me as an IOS user If other APPS follow suit and are removed or remove themselves from the APP store. The Iowa IOS experience changes quite a bit. Now, you might be satisfied with apple's APPS and that's all you need to use but these massive third party titles. If this boycott becomes bigger, you might find yourself looking for a platform that gives you a little bit more control. Over. What you install on it Thus for Oh and did you since you wanted me to go I if you have anything you'd like to add now it'd be the time before we move on for an a fortnight topic. No. I. Think you've touched on a lot of points I do agree with the tier system in a way where. You know if a company is is big enough like epic, they should maybe get more of a cut. EPIC should apple should get less of a cut right YEP because you're talking about billions of dollars potentially. Yeah and it's the same listing on the APP store that the Independent. Developer with one hundred. Hundred downloads is paying the same fee..

Apple, Google drop Fortnite from app stores over payments

"Apple and Google have removed the popular video game fortnight from their APP stores both claim that fortnight is violating the payment guidelines of the APP stores in return epic Games. The creator of fortnight has filed federal lawsuits against both apple and Google Jason. This really did heat up pretty quickly. It did it did heat up very quickly and it's it's kind of fun to watch. From Apple's perspective. It's good to be king but. At some point or another that cuts both ways and I think we're starting to see that I mean, once these games, these APPS, these services start to have enough users. Then this really starts to matter one pushes back then more follow and enemy to be clear I mean this is just a fortnight thing. Right? We've seen the same sentiments from match dot com from spotify there will be more to follow from this. Apple needs to be able to offer a reason for that thirty percent APP store tax something beyond just oh well, it's our system therefore, we can do whatever we want. I don't think maintaining and growing that ecosystem is good enough reason anymore either a time ago maybe, but it's been built, right? I mean. That's kind of the purpose. Once you get this thing built Y- requires a different level of maintenance and upkeep and you know I mean I it is. It's different time I don't blame epic games at all for doing this. I think ultimately, it probably results in A. Negotiation as opposed to just pure litigation I think apple probably steps back and realizes that this is something that will not go away. They're not going to be able to just cut a deal with that that games and then just move forward. So I bet over the course of the next year we see them make some concessions to avoid being put in the spotlight on this because again we've talked about before. For the ongoing future here I mean Amazon Microsoft Alphabet Apple facebook. Is really going to be under that antitrust microscope innovate can just throw throw a bone here and there. To make it a little bit less To make the hard triple but less in regard of that tax could probably go a long way.

"To even if you don't want to spend the money to fix it, they're they'll probably be able to tell you what the source of the problem is. Then you can make your decision based on that if a reset to factory settings doesn't work and it's a hardware problem keep in mind that it might not be worth fixing. Yeah at that point it, it is such an older phone Andrea that you might WanNa consider a newer model doesn't mean the newest model you could always buy a used phone just get something like what's the one that's even out now as the eleven eleven and they the supporters, rumors that the twelve will be coming out. So you know I do I do I always buy the last model? I'm always a model behind because I wait till they're a little bit cheaper gap and they. Are because they want to sell the newest model and that's fine. Let all your friends and relatives and other people deal with the bugs in the problems that the brand new model may have you get the one after that. That's already had the bugs worked out and the appropriate updates but let us know what works out for you in the long run because I'm very curious spotify has improved. It's parental control features by enabling parents to view their child's listening history, and of course. Block any unwanted content it's about time because your son Cameron who's just turned eight is very aware of some of music he likes and they're not radio edit version sometimes and he'll say, oh, I can't listen to that because there some bad words in it. Well, that's good because we appreciate his knowing he's not supposed to listen to that. But if if you have on spotify now the with the new parental control features, you don't have to worry about it and he's been really good. I have the Amazon music unlimited whoever so he'll. He'll always ask Alexa home to. Hong and he'll be singing along. But then if it happens to be the one where has bad words I've watched him when a bad word comes on he was in the my here Alexa stop. Stop the song if it's the the Cleveland. Can't he ask for the radio edit version so I don't know if he knows that though of course he does when he used to ride with me after after school of when I used to pick them up every day from preschool, we do that we would specifically ask like with a youtube video you played the radio edit or something because or play the clean version of name assault I have an option in Miami Music I just haven't activated it. We're can filter explicit song so that will only play clean song because you WanNa hear the bad words is that I haven't seen the need, but I don't generally listen to songs that have bad words in them, but he likes some of that stuff that kids listen to. Activate, that feature like that rap. Crap. Yep. Yep can't spell crap about rap. So. But. Getting dirty looks from a control room now. Oh well, it's because they're young and that's how that goes but I'm glad that spotify doing what they're doing as well. So at least you can be comfortable as parent. If you let them, let your child use your spotify account just make sure it's the one where you've blocked on wanted content and then go on listen to whatever they'd like hopefully spotify is done a good job of of keeping it clean for them. Jake in Colefax wanting ten listens on kmox forty am jake welcome into tomorrow right now I'm calling you guys my Currently Motorola e four which has a terrible battery right now in my birthday coming up so I'm wondering what phone should I get I prefer to have a phone has two gigabytes of Ram I'd prefer to be under four hundred dollars I've heard good things about the Motorola g plus but I don't know if that's a good if there'd be worth my money to. Get that well, Jake first of all happy early birthday and that's awesome and we'll be thinking of you although you didn't tell us when it is, but it's coming up. So happy early birthday we've heard good things about the Motorola g plus but they have all revolved around the price. The display is apparently very, very good from what we gather the camera is good but not. As good as Motorola claims the rest of the phone seems to largely be what you can expect for the price point of the device. Now, it's not flawless, but it's five or six times cheaper than some of the phones hitting the market these days. Overall, it does look like a good phone and a reasonable choice for the price. There's very little competition for you to consider. At that same price point but there are some to consider at just under four hundred dollars. Now, if you don't mind having a phone that didn't hit the market this year, a Samsung Galaxy S. nine can be had for under four hundred bucks. An iphone eight can still be found for three fifty and their brand new SE's selling for four hundred and is a new phone. You don't want to have the poor guy become an iphone come on. He's talking about android the will it help about it city? Help him out. That's steering them towards Iphone don't pay attention jake about IPHONE. Old flagships were built to better standards so they may be worth considering even if they're not new anymore since they may still be more powerful and better built than newer budget phones. Now, another phone you might want to consider Google Pixel three A it's an incredible phone cussing about four hundred bucks. It has four gig Ram sixty four gig of storage a five point six in screen an impressive front and rear cameras at eight and twelve point two mega pixels respectively. So that's a that's a phone with a lot of good features for four hundred bucks so you might want to really look at that. Jake. Because, I think you're going to get a lot more for your money than what you would have gotten for the same amount of money with the Motorola and being that it's a google phone. It's not going to have a whole lot of this crap wear added on by the carrier. In fact, that's the key with the Pixel phones and they are clean flat out android not only is there no crap wear from the phone manufacturer because in this case, it's a google phone, but you also they don't allow the carriers to put their nonsense stuff on it as well. So you end up with a true. That.

How the TikTok Ban Would Affect the Influencer Economy

"Terror Lawrence walking adverse cast. Thanks for having me you are reports near time see cover influencers the influence our economy, which is what I won't talk to you about but I asked you on the show to talk about Tiktok a while ago like several days ago and I said we should do this as late as possible before we publish because something else will happen with Tiktok and Lo and behold last night according to some Friday last night Thursday night very late the trump administration issued two executive orders one banning all transactions with Tiktok in forty five days, which is September twentieth in the other we chat. Benny. All transactions we chat and we chats parent company ten, cent which owns. Stakes everything from spotify they own all of League of legends they on forty percent of fortnight on religion epic games I want to talk to you about Tiktok. But that all happened what has been the response from sort of the influence or community to that I feel like I should just ask you from the job. Yeah. Well, it's been a roller coaster for them. Maybe to a bunch of people last night because you know earlier this week, it seemed like it was going to be fine like a lot of them were told at trump said even last week that the ban could come as soon as last Saturday and when when that didn't happen. The kind of thought they were all good again, and now they're scrambling it's literally thrown huge swath of the entertainment industry into arrears I mean we saw Forbes released their list of top earning talkers, yesterday, and including people like Charlie, Milio, Addison, Ray, all of these kind of young Internet stars and they're making millions and so you know. All of that money that they're making his in jeopardy all of these big brand campaigns that American Eagle. Other brands are doing in jeopardy The music industry is obviously scrambling. So it's it's a mess. Yeah. I. Want to come back to that thing in the moment but I wanted to the reason I wanted to have you on is I think the influence, our economy, those millions of dollars that you just talked about this kind of not well understood. And you do a great job of covering it. I think I've told you like your coverage has definitely been an influence on our coverage. I think of our creators is a secret business section on the verge like that's bundle mentally what it is it's our. It's our teenage millionaire section like it's a business desk, not really like a memes desk but just to give even that even some context, your personal reporting history has twists and turns the kind of led you here. Can you give people just a sense? Of that because you started as like like a strategist, a digital strategist and you've ended up covering platforms and the money gets made on them, I see a pretty clear through line there. Yeah, I. Mean I've always been really obsessed with these platforms I, mean I graduated over a decade ago now into the recession and got on Tumbler and which I very quickly built some popular blogs on Tumbler, and that was my entry into social media world and yeah, I worked as a as strategist basically helping social media. Brands like household names like Bud light kind of navigate the social media world. This was before branch twitter was even a thing facebook just rolled out brand pages in like two thousand nine. So I was sort of helping brands build audiences online and I got really fascinated by how these deals were being done on the Internet how people were leveraging audience for themselves and yeah sort of did that and then ended. Up doing the same thing for media companies as a social media director for a while, and then I was always sort of writing on the side and then finally about almost three years ago I switched over and started reading about at fulltime. I think also the equator economy I don't think it was truly a beat until that time the way that it is now I think the real money started pouring in. Maybe Post Twenty sixteen.

Trump Executive Orders Target TikTok, WeChat Apps

"President of the United States signed two executive orders Thursday under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and a couple other justifications forbidding transactions with tiktok owner bite dance, and any transactions with ten cents related to their super. APP We chat. Each of these orders takes effect September twentieth. You might recall Microsoft has until September fifteenth to reach a deal to buy some or all of Tiktok from by dense. So there's a little bit of a gap there between win Microsoft's deadline is and when this executive order takes place. So that's the first thing to remember is they didn't ban the APPS they banned transactions with the companies which could cause apps to disappear and it doesn't happen until. September twentieth. So there's forty five days to figure out how this is going to work. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross will identify which transactions will be considered prohibited under the order. So that's going to change a lot of people are looking at the tencent order and saying, well, wait could this band transactions with other ten cent industries and so that will be important for the the definition from Wilbur Ross to decide is it really just we chat? The use of the emergency act is generally applied to terrorism or sometimes international trade and will likely be challenged in court. In fact, tiktok is pretty much said it's going to do that. The order claims the APPS access to user data including location browsing messaging payments, and search histories. Quote threatens to allow the Chinese Communist Party access to America's personal and proprietary information potentially allowing China to track the locations of federal employees and contractors. Bill dossiers a personal information for blackmail and conduct. `corporate espionage. This is considered in both cases, a threat to national security foreign policy and the economy of the United. States. So there's the justification they're going to have to find out in court. While, the order against we chat is likely to be narrow if it's not. It could affect ten cents non we chat businesses. In fact, some companies may just out of an abundance of caution decide to back off ten cents non we chat businesses just in case.

"The music video for the hit song. My truck starts off like mini country music videos, country star Sam honey with a wide brimmed hat walks through a cloud of dust. Yoke and drank my leg. Come you. Can Take Mama and Yuka small. Schools these horns you can say you hate me you. Down to my truck. Then a young black man appears wire brimmed glasses and a huge grand shoves him out of the frame. Out. At the start of this year, he was just a recent college graduate trying to break into music then truck up and the song hit number one on spotify viral fifty chart back in February. The music video now has over twenty four million views and counting religious music defies definition. He's country trap hip hop aren be and so much more, and he joins us now from his home in Nashville to reflect on his music and his life as part of our series on how artists are reimagining and reflecting the current moment in their work. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you for having such a glowing introduction to bring you with me everywhere now. Oh Yeah I'll do it. So you're a recent college Grad, writing songs trying to break down the doors of the music business, and then all of a sudden you're going viral with this country song what what was it that actually got you to try your hand at Country Music Just. Always trying to do things that I think can can push the boundaries. I don't like to feel stagnant. So this was kind of came about kind of a challenge show in the studio with with some friends of mine, and we were kind of talking about the new wave of. Country Crossover records that had been that have been coming out like Old Town road and I was just like I feel like I can make a song like that and it would be pretty dope and they were like Nah man you can't make like that and I was like, okay challenge accepted so. Just started. Working on it and was able to come up with something. I guess that that stuck with people you've mentioned other artists like a little gnaws, of course, with Old Town road We also know though about the massive debate over what country is and who country belongs to. What is country to? country to me is a genre of music that is really just defined by strong songwriting and storytelling I think anyone can can make it. I think anyone can you know their based country music stars who are from? Other countries you know between. Fine and have been there some others, and then it really just comes down to the music and then whether or not people accept you I want to deepen that a little bit though because the New York Times reports that my truck isn't really picking up steam on traditional country music stations which are known to be pretty conservative. Do you even about that? I mean it would be it would be nice to have gotten more country radio support I. Think like Sirius Xm, the highways played it a lot. But in terms of traditional country radio, I don't think we got any spends I was hoping when I put Sam Hi on the remixed that would have probably validated it a little bit but it wasn't quite enough and I I understand it though because if you listen to country radio, it's. Tends to be wide dudes over forty so. For me to be a twenty five year old black dude. I, have a song, eight hundred weights and like hip hop production on it like it would've been a lot different than what was currently being played. My thing is if all of these country music fans are these a lot of them who are under thirty for example, are also listening to like drake and Migos, and even like our day and those cat, why do they have to leave the genre to get their fix of like bars and like hard beats like I feel like? Especially, with after after my truck came out I, realized that audience needs music and I know how to make it and I can I kinda stand in my in my own lane and help carve out a sub genre of music that speaks to the millennial modern country fan

So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

These are really difficult crazy stressful times, and if you're trying to sort of cope, it could be helpful to find something that gets beyond like doom scrolling and like obsessive worried. But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world. We've seen now more than ever like how relevant policy is to our actual lives, but so much in the news isn't focused on really understanding and explaining detail way if that sounds good to you, join us for the weeds, every Tuesday and Friday to find out what's going on why matters and what we can do about it. You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.

Tech's four biggest companies are going on trial

"Important tech hearings up on Capitol Hill, where the CEOs the four largest tech companies are due to appear before Ah House Judiciary subcommittee on Anna trusted to answer questions about whether they have become and a competitive and won't return. Now to Emily Chang. She is anchor of Bloomberg Tech. We were rudely interrupted before I'm delighted you could be back with us, Emily So let's talk about this. We're talking about the four cos they're all big. They're all tech, but they're actually quite different company. One from the other. How can there be a through line from this investigation on these four different companies? Absolutely, And that's a very good point, David, Each of these CEOs of each of these four companies could have their own multi day hearing. The issues are very different with Facebook. It's misinformation and advertising with Google is advertising and search, which, with Apple, it is The APP store with Amazon. It is how these companies treat third party sellers. Jeff Bezos is somebody that we're really going to be watching here, the CEO of Amazon and also the richest person in the world because he's never testified before Congress before, and there are a lot of people who want to hear what he has to say in his prepared remarks, which were also a little bit different. From the rest. He talked about how his parents invested in Amazon in the early days. A typical and true American success story. He's also the owner of The Washington Post says that that could bring out a little more idolatry from the lawmakers. We don't know, but it's definitely going to be interesting to see how these lawmakers throughout their questions because they could basically ask anyone Anything at any time. So there's a chance that this could be all over the map, especially given that this is a virtual hearing. You're gonna have some of the lawmakers in the room. The hearing has been delayed because they're basically cleaning up from the last hearing. You've got staffers inside now washing it down. But all of the CEOs will be calling in virtually So your comments suggest there is another person not in the room who may be quite important that is Donald J. Trump the president, United States He's not been shy in his criticism of some of these tech companies at all. What is the potential influence of the president here? Absolutely. And David we actually just in the last half hour, So got another tweet from the president focused on Big tech, the president tweeting. If Congress doesn't bring fairness to Big Tech, which they should have done years ago, I will do it myself with executive orders in Washington. It has been all talk and no action for years and the people of our country are sick. And tired of it. Of course, the president tweets themselves have been the subject of much controversy, especially how Facebook in particular has handled his tweets. The one about looters and shooters threatening violence on the American people threatening violence on protesters in Washington, D. C. Facebook has made the decision to let those posts stand unflagging not behind. A warning of any kind, and that has kicked off. Ah lot of controversy. Facebook is in the middle of an ad boycott. Right now, you've got massive advertisers who have pulled their advertising from Facebook for the month of July and some for the foreseeable future. So you can expect Facebook to be the subject and Mark Zuckerberg in particular, probably of the most iron from these lawmakers. Lots of concern. About anti conservative bias on the right and also concerns from Democrats as well. You've seen Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, also taking aim at Facebook, and in fact, President Trump has already used his executive powers to sign an executive order asking The FCC to take a look at old laws that give companies like Facebook and Google and Twitter protection from liability over the content that those users users post so we could expect that to be a really hot button issue today. Well, it's a fascinating point. This is Washington where the rules as we both know are different, but this is the antitrust subcommittee, the House Judiciary Committee. Theoretically, they're supposed to do with competition issues. Not the substance of speech. And yet I wonder whether it would be a fair amount of questions that have nothing to do with that. I trust her competition at all it has to do with political bias. Absolutely. And look, I've talked to all of the company's going into this. They're expecting questions to be all over the map. It is not all going to fall under the antitrust umbrella, and we know that at some of these lawmakers, we're gonna have sort of personal bones to pick with these companies whether or not one of their posts personally was flagged. Or not, And it's been interesting hearing from the critics as well. You've got CEOs of other big tech companies like the CEO of Spotify, the CEO of Epic games and maker of Fortnight. I've spoken to these folks in the last couple of weeks in the last couple of months, and they've been speaking out about thes companies saying that Apple, for example. Is American, Apple and Google are a duopoly. You've heard a lot of criticism going into this about how these companies run their businesses, and that's what these lawmakers have been hearing now on. The other side of these four companies have massive lobbying operations that they've turned over. One source told me voluminous amounts of documents, millions and millions of pages. Stating their case stating their side to make sure that these lawmakers are informed and we should hope that these lawmakers are going into this with with some level of the right information you know in the past. When Mark Zuckerberg, for example, testified before Congress for the first time, some lawmakers didn't understand how Facebook's business model actually worked. So we'll be watching to see whether or not these lawmakers actually understand the businesses and the points That they want to make. It was a famous exchange. How do you make your money If you don't charge for, he said, Well, we sell advertising Senator. That was quite an exchange. Emily. Thank you so very much Want to treat you have you with us? That's Bloomberg technology anchor Emily Chang, and we're going to bring you the hearing when it finally gets underway on Capitol Hill. Meanwhile,

CS:GOs Latest Patch is a Disaster

"Properly. Understand what trusted mode is why is causing problems I spoke with Gamer. Who has a background in cybersecurity and run something called the over watched police department, which is a discord server where you can report cheaters different F ps, games, and he'll do his best to get them banned. We've spoken to him a bunch in the past for cheating centric. Don't me episodes? So I think what they're trying to stop a lot of the pace thing that's going on in Seacot cs go is actually like if if? If you wanted to create sheets and you also want to cheat developers. Hey I. I WANNA create sheets, learn how did it? They will tell you do then see us go because enciso. It's extra really easy to create sheets. There's a lot of tools out there. Basically, he says, what trusted mode is trying to do is also its biggest problem namely stomping third party software from communicating with. CS Go. So if you've lovie asked discord or. Or invidia freestyle graphics filters open while trying to run CS go. You'll be met with a message that tells you close any third party software into relaunched es go entrusted mode. You literally can't run the game with something as simple as spotify open in the background. Here's a quote from the longer blog post dedicated to trust it mode quo. Some applications interact with CISCO BY INJECTING DIRECTLY INTO THE GAME process. This method is used by common. Common applications as well as cheats. We can vastly improve prevention by restricting injections altogether as opposed to determining whether an injection is a cheat or not, and Gamer doc says, the valve is essentially saying that because hackers are hiding cheating software within normal in usually safe third party software bounce, just GONNA ban everything from trying to connect to see us go. It's not an issue because the reason why it's blocked, it's because cheaters are. Really using these fumble softwares. Like they have some vulnerable locations in the software. So S, for instance, you're able to hook onto BS. driver. Or whatever, and be able to cheat through ob s, or you could cheat true nvidia stuff or you could true cheat through discords overlay. That's the reason why they're blocking and it's because it's not the fault of the Anti Sheet team. It's the fault of the company not removing these horrible things. Now, trusted mouth doesn't specifically tell you what third party software is potentially raising red flags. So unless you're literally only running CS, go have fun trying to figure out what applications you need to close. Game Reduc described trusted mode as glorified PR move in response to Van Guard, which is. Is Right Games as intrusive anti cheat system that they rolled out with the release? Of Valerie. He said that vanguard operates at the colonel level of your computer's architecture, which basically means it's a level of your computer software that the General Gamer. Rarely if ever has to deal with in according to Gamer Doc, it's here at the kernel level where you'll find the most sophisticated in hardest spot cheating software, and again according to him, Cisco's trusted mode doesn't. Doesn't work on this level at all instead operating a more surface level basis, which he's told us in the past does almost nothing to stop hacking or cheating software from getting into your computer and listen these days. Intrusive. Anti Cheat Systems are out there face. It has one vanguard one, it's not like vow doesn't know they have to go deeper nick repeaters architecture to actually stop cheating, which is why Gamer Docs speculates that trusted mode is more of. Of a glorified PR moved than actually a piece of software that's going to keep people safe. The best solution like in any like oganization like that's has an anti cheat think colonel is like the best solution to combat the Cheetah's at least from my perspective like seen Van. Gart completely annihilate every single copy paster on just like private sheets, even like as you can see like the to private to pro players who got bonds for cheating. And all dot could have stuff like they are really aggressive with their anti cheat and it's really working. He also told me that within an hour of trusted mode going live hackers had found a way around it. He even sent me screen shots and links to forums, hackers, and cheaters were openly talking about how simple the system was to hack. So yeah, trusted mode hasn't seemed to stop people. People from cheating and it just seems to have made things worse for people who just WanNa play competitive on top of the third party software issue players have complained about frame rate drops when doing something as simple as moving your mouse across the screen and according to both valve and Gamer Doc. This is a side effect of trusted mode in the Anti Third Party software stance that valve. Valve is taking, but it's also a problem that they're actively looking to fix quote. Sometimes, applications attempt to inject during low level windows, mouse events, which results in noticeable performance degradation. When the most moved, we're testing a mechanism that has virtually zero overhead, even the most zealous injecting software. Once this new approach ships players should no longer notice a performance impact from running entrusted mode even when moving. Moving the mouse and quote after the go community complained that this thing was a China pain in the ass vowed pushed out to new patches, the latest of which went live on July twenty third in it. They talk about fixing performance issues related to trusted mode, and they provided a temporary fix to allow third party software to communicate with. See US go cope a new compatibility launch option. OPTION DASH allow third party software is provided to allow third party software to access the CS. Go game process. So basically if you punch that line of code into your steam preferences prior to launching see go apparently third party software now works with the game, but my question is doesn't this defeat. The whole point of hackers are using third party software to cheat and see us go why. Why would you let people turn off the option that apparently stops that now, valve has given players the option to completely turn off trusted mode and play in the old version of CS go. But there's a catch quote if you would like to play while using third party software that interacts go launch with the DASH untrusted launch option note that in this case, your trust score may be. Be Negatively affected and quote that last sentence stands out to me, your trust score may be negatively affected. Remember Trust score is one of the ways vow figures out who to Q. Within matchmaking. So if you play trust turned off, that score could be negatively impacted even if you've done nothing wrong. Okay. But where does all of this leave us? Well, the good news is that valve is. is working on fixes, which they noted in their July twenty third patch note blog post, and while this definitely won't fix ups goes cheating. Problem Gamer doc does think that this trusted mode is a part of valves larger long-term plan to fight back against it. I think personally becomes just a marketing thing. It was just calmed out some of the players because of the huge influx of cheaters. And this influx of change that's not going to stop belief aimed to increase an increase unless something major happens.

Eisenhower Matrix and When You Should Launch Your Show

"What is going on a friend today I want to share with you a question that I got recently about whether you should launch right now during a pandemic, and while this world is just really a crazy place. We've had riots. We've had the pandemic. Of course you'd have tons of other things that are just really odd for near normal midway checkpoint through the year so I got this question the other day that was a good one, because sure a lot of people who haven't launched it, or maybe they're thinking about launching, or maybe they know that they WANNA launch. Launch. They need help with a strategy or the need. Help some of the technical aspects, and they're letting that be an excuse to get them going and get the moving the right direction when they know this is the podcast is something they want to do. They know it's GonNa make sense for them. They know it makes sense for their business. They know they get a lot of value out of out of it, and they know they can give a lot of value more importantly to the world doesn't make sense to launch a podcast during this pandemic during this. Time of economic corrections. What a lot of people I guess the politically correct term it according to Internet experts. Honestly, I think yes, and it's not just because I'm a producer and yeah I. Make my living off of helping people with podcast. Doubt about it, but it's yes, because my question to you is what are you going to be doing where you're GonNa? Be when this is all over, and are you going to be further along, or are you going to be kind of in the same spot with the same platforms or the same place? You feel like you are right now. Your Business personally for me, I've taken this as a way as place to grow my knowledge in other places that week at such as facebook. Advertising platforms like spotify ads. A lot talk, allow learning and testing that space in honestly, this is the time for people who are smart to actually grow and continue to expand where you can in a podcasting is one of those things I don't want you to be stuck on the fence. Who you think launching there are during a pandemic doesn't make sense if you have the ability to grow and expand right now, and you're leading the pandemic excuse, or maybe even just like I. Don't have time for it. Stop you. I think that's really really ignorant. I think that's really really not the best thing for you. If you look long term in your life or in your business so. So! I had a coach teach me. Something recently shot to Greg Hickman from the all agencies and amazing guy and slowly I've learned from Greg. Is something called? The Eisenhower Matrix, and the Eisenhower made is consistent, consists of like four boxes right on the top. You have urgent and not urgent, and then on the left hand side. You have to think of a four part boxer Google Eisenhower Matrix. You have important, not important. podcasting falls into the important, but not urgent bucket for a lot of people. It's something that they know they should do. They know they want to do the. No, it makes sense, but they don't have. They know there's no timeframe on. Any pushing you to podcast with. There's really only really urgency comes from is from yourself internally nine times out of ten from what I've seen, so you don't want to let those needle moving tasks or needle moving objectives fall to the wayside and doing this personally my own business until Greg called me out on it and I credit him for that 'cause. I couldn't see with my own eyes so if you're being me. And being stubborn about and focusing on things that are urgent and important, or maybe urgent, not important right now. If that's where a lot of your time is, then I would challenge you to go and take a look at the Eisenhower Matrix and go and see if you really want to do a podcast. What makes sense with you for you and you are saying you don't have the time for it. Flat out all of the things you're doing and put them on one of those four buckets. You have urgent, not important but urgent. That's like. Email and things like that. You have urgent and important. Those are like creating content every week. That's like fulfilment for your clients. That's you know things like that. Those are the main two for me, and then you have -portant, but not urgent. That's like. Maybe ads campaign or building a Webinar or launching a podcast or launch a YouTube channel or going to this event. Maybe one Kobe's over the pandemics over, so we got important, not urgent urgent. Important not important, but urgent, and then not important, not urgent, which should not be on your list to do it all

Episode 86, Older iPads: Love it or Leave it in Fall 2020

"Welcome to the Matt Minutes Episode Eighty Six for Sunday July twenty sixth. Older ipads love it or leave it in fall twenty twenty. This is the MAC minutes podcast with John Scudder where you will hear about the world of Apple, and how technology can help you work smarter personally and professionally. We will give you the news. You can use in minutes. Not Hours. That's why this is. The MAC minutes podcast. This episode is being recorded in Anchorage Alaska. Let's go to the show. In this episode we will begin to help you prepare for the launching of new hardware. Starting in September. Specifically will be looking at ipads, especially for those of you. Who owned two thousand eleven, IPAD, second, second-generation, two, thousand, twelve, IPAD, third or fourth generation or two thousand twelve IPAD mini first generation. If you own an older ipad model, some are now becoming too old to underpowered and completely incompatible with any of the current and future versions of I O. S. and IPAD WES. In addition, these ipad models many which are eight and nine years old will be fully and completely obsolete by the end of twenty twenty. And you will have no older version APPS available for them any longer. So, you might want to consider upgrading when apple makes new hardware announcements this fall. To help illustrate this further. There's a chart at. That B. L., U. B. R. Y. Dot Net showing the twenty one models of ipads released in information about screen size, release, year, discontinuation, date, and the most advanced operating system. They can run now. This is a great chart to illustrate the purpose of this episode. For those of you, who own on older IPAD, there are options, but it is time to say goodbye for a new refurbished or a much newer ipad. This doesn't mean you need to buy the latest IPAD model. Apple will debut this fall. There are options we will discuss. As a minimum, you'll need to purchase it. Knipe pad that can run the latest and greatest versions of operating system as well as the most current APPS available. You can do so from apple or a discounted refurbished ipad from apple's refurbished in clearance section. This website link can be found at the bottom of the page or at https. Colon slash slash. WWW DOT apple dot com slash shop slash refurbished, slash IPAD. Another option is from an apple, authorized third party, retail, or online reseller, or other trusted sources for new or used apple products I predominantly gone with apple refurbished, because refurbished has different definitions depending on the retailer. Furthermore Apple Care is available to purchase giving you reassurance of a sound product. If. You decide to purchase an IPAD and must purchase used ipad models do not look at anything older than two thousand fourteen IPAD air, two or two thousand fifteen ipad mini four. Both of these models are the oldest ipad models that the up incoming ipad Os fourteen will support this fall when the version is released for those of you who look at third party retailers, you must ask a whole lot more questions of the. Device seller specifically more photos and images, if you can't see the device in person, and above all ask for visual proof that such an APP head has been properly set to the factory settings and needs to be shown proof of the IRS devices startup screen, showing the animation moving multi-language. Hello welcome to ipad screen. This is a necessity. If the Iowa device seller is unwilling to do all of this. Pass on the. Device and look at other used. Iowa's device sellers elsewhere. Are Unscrupulous people who will try and sell stolen devices which cannot be unlocked. These devices are unusable, even with possibly trying apple support, which normally requires a court order, ensuring these steps are done are very important. Getting back to the question of why and upgrade is in order. Let's delve deeper into a explanation. I the amount of older compatible available APPs for these older ipad models has been severely significantly dwindling down since the beginning of twenty, twenty. Getting older versions of APPs for these older ipad models initially from Apple's. APP store is getting very difficult and problematic. As of the beginning of two thousand and nineteen many third party, APP developers are all more quickly and completely permanently dropping older APP support for all eight nine and ten year old IOS devices that are running two and three year old earlier IOS versions specifically Iowa's ten and earlier. Third Party APP developers removing all their older legacy versions of their APPs from Apple's APP. Store servers. Third Party APP. Developers no longer want to support these eight and nine year old or older. Devices there's simply no financial incentive for them to do so. Older versions of APPS are soon going to be gone for good. Apple considers these ipads. Vintage models, indicating these old IPADS have reached their complete end of life and support cycles. So these old IPADS that can no longer be upgraded or updated lab, no more applications for initial download at all from the apple store. Thus making these older ipads unusable from a practical sense. If you own one of these eight or nine year old IPADS, they will be pretty much obsolete by the end of twenty twenty, so looking soon with the fall launch for a new or slightly used ipad is in order. I understand what the current economic climate covert nineteen pandemic purchasing a new IPAD is not possible for everyone. If this is the case, many people will be upgrading and looking to sell or donate their devices at a greatly reduced price. If MAC minutes can help you with your tech.

Show Notes Tips from Tech-Minded Podcasters

"First thing, the big news for those of us in the podcast industry in a lot of podcasters out there is podcasts movement. In Dallas, has been canceled surprise surprise. It's kind of been the theme all this year. You know all these big events getting canceled or push back and then canceled and that's what happened here. They pushed it from August to October and then decided to go virtual. So, they're going to be going virtual. If you applied to speak at podcast movement by the way you're going to have to reapply if you WANNA speak virtually at the virtual event. That's I believe October nineteenth yeah, Eighteen, th through the twenty nineth, so they're going to kind of spread it out over ten days, so at shouldn't a burden, too many people with having to take a lot of time off from work. That'll be good. Yeah I was surprised when I saw how long the virtual event is going to go for, but I do think that's good, because most of us including me. I don't really WANNA. Sit on a you know virtual video conference type thing for you know more than. Probably a few hours a day, so spreading it out will make it easier. I think for most people oh. Yeah for sure, and you know I kind of saw this coming of if you notice all of the little, meet upset. podcast movements been having online every time they do it. They use a different technology. So I think they were just testing out the technology to figure out what they want to do for the the virtual full events so. It'll be interesting to see how it all works out I. Hope I hope it goes well. I know podcast is doing one in August. that's all virtual online, so we'll see how these big conferences work in the virtual world. It really is kind of a brave new world for all of US years. We try to figure out. How to do all these things in the wake of a pandemic, it's It's all new stuff. Oh Yeah I. Think L. for the most part. We're getting through it and getting. Getting. Things done that have to be done. You know that are not related directly to the pandemic or all that so. I think I. Think it's good that it's online this year. I, you know I really hope that things get back to where we can get back in person because I haven't traveled since October which is amazing for me usually. I'm on the road. So Anyway Twenty twenty one. They've already scheduled the podcast movement twenty twenty, one for Nashville Tennessee so. That'll be a new venue for them. Usually they're in bigger cities and guess. Nashville is pretty big, but I. don't know I guess I wouldn't mind checking out Nashville. Yeah. It's an interesting location. I. I know, didn't There was another you know media convention was it's The religious broadcasters association I think that Yeah usually habits meetings in Tennessee. Yeah, and RB National Religious Broadcasters. They usually have there's in Tennessee. They had it out in Anaheim one year. But for the most part it's at the same venue. In Nashville, so I know Mackenzie Angelo and todd have all been to that venue for that show, so they'll be familiar with it. Yeah Yeah it's It's an interesting choice. I like that you know podcast movement has. Tried through its history different locations I. think it's good for everybody because you know, it's a travel under abnormal conditions you know is different for everybody. Some people can afford to go farther and if you have it in a different location. If, people want to drive in. They can or whatever the case is, so it's nice that they've. They've tried to have it in different places over the years. Oh, yeah, when they hit Chicago a I drove. Most of the way in took Amtrak in so that was Kinda cool. Nashville kind of on the outside of my one day drive. Limit so we'll see. You know. Who knows. If, I drive it or fly it or Maybe, I'll find a train that goes that way. I don't know we'll see but I kind of look forward to that Rate. Stood, we have here in the news folder. According to macrumors and many many other sources spotify is introducing their video podcasts for more shows. And I know James Crillon over at Pod News. Dot Net was asking them. You know how. How is that GONNA work is to be are astronaut. turns out that no some sort of proprietary. Thing, so basically you have to upload the video right at spotify, and it only goes to spotify, so it's not like a full video podcast, and if you have a video podcast, that is a full normal, RSS, based video podcast still won't work on spotify.

"spotify" Discussed on MarketFoolery

"Going to begin with spotify. Latest partnership. And it's not a podcast which has been sort of the trend for a while with spotify when they come out with material news. But today it's the fact that spotify has a new long-term licensing deal with universal music group. Help me understand this I. It seems like spotify is going to provide not just marketing, but also data and analytics from their platform so that they can give universal music group, a sense of who is listening to what? Exactly, so I actually when we talk this morning to topics, I chose this topic because I just yesterday. Actually we were having sort of an investor roundtable about spotify and I am. Well I think that the platform is great. I kind of have a couple of questions. Particularly Round the valuation that there to ban demanding right now. It's almost fifty five billion dollar company and I just. For a little bit of. backstory or history on that market, so Ford Music labels actually owned about ninety percent of the market and so. Historically what we've seen is that pricing power is solidly in the hands of the labels within spotify so. They've struggled to really turn. Or demonstrate a consistent level of profitability and so <hes>. You mentioned that they've pursued podcast. One thing I think that's a great idea because. You know if we think about exclusive content, so then pursuing a strategy similar to say Disney or Netflix or Hulu. It's not really possible music again for music labels on about ninety percent market. They tried to start their own label and actually backed off from an initiative because it was sort of <hes>. Put them in at odds with their suppliers in some respect right so <hes> podcast is one way that they have tried to get that exclusive content deal, but I remained a little bit hesitant about this platform, just given <hes> I think podcasts are sort of a secondary offering that spotify particularly right now and people are still going there for the music and I think. Valuation today didn't necessarily <hes>. Justify, With their music offering, but today's deal like you mentioned <unk> is the game changer for spotify, so they've signed this agreement with Vivendi's Universal Music Group. And for background, universal owns about forty percent of all US music for straightening and so. You're right the agreement right now. Is that you I'm Jay will provide their sort of massive music, Cadillac restraining and in return you J is becoming a spotify testing and development partner for new tools, services marketing products. So like you've mentioned there is a couple of things that have already been started on. It is part of what they're calling. Their two sided platform so. For example what they've been doing that, labels cannot pay to deliver push notifications that promote new music to user is either previously listened to that promoted artists added to their library and what they've seen. Is that <hes>? Spending in marketing in this way is actually more effective than other options so I'm hopefully more agreements like that will come into play. Is Yet another way for spotify to get a little bit more margin on their core music streaming business. So this is what I actually think is could be a very strong game changer for spotify. For All the headlines that spotify has made and rightfully so for the acquisitions. They've made in the podcast space. My first thought when I saw this was. Oh, they're getting back to their bread and butter. Like this. This this is this is the main reason. People are going to spotify and signing up for it. You mentioned the valuation. A stock is up five six percent on this deal. It's nearly doubled in two thousand, nine, hundred twenty I mean you're not wrong when you say by the valuation of spotify you can, you can make bullish on this business and still look at what it has done over the last six, and a half months and sort of shake your head and say it's. Not a cheap stock right I mean I would say you know I think they've had a strong year. They have demonstrated stickiness to this platform that was certainly tested during Kovic. Pre Cove about fifty percent of their listening hours for spent outside the home, so <hes> assumed that was sort of commuting commuting time so either on A. smartphone or In the auto things like that, and so as covert happened. People were worried that you know people you don't have that those same anymore and so on. Are People really going to stick with? Continue to pay for this premium platform, and the answer actually was yes, so rather than listening <hes> out of the home. He blurted shifting where they're listening and what they're listening to you, so they talked a lot about. SMART. Connected, devices so gaming consoles. Things like that have seen an uptick in usage, also sort of these wellness or calming playlist, rather than they're commuting sort of upbeat things, but I mean that was one significant test of this platform that I think you know pre pandemic to necessarily seen or known that data, so it was encouraging. They've had a good year.

"Be more efficient and thereby creating more of better solutions for them and for artists spend example of how the efficiency happens. Well, one of the hardest problems right now for artists to get hurt. One of the biggest platforms to be heard at would be Spotify. Right. So today the primary tool that a an artist has to get heard on Spotify. Besides putting the music on. There is getting known by one of our editors so weird way. Like while we want to democratize music. We've counted become gatekeepers as well. So the question is can we develop tools that enables artists to promote their music more efficiently just by themselves on the platform, and that could be in the form of being able to talk to. Existing super fans that are on the platform. It could be in the form of better promotional tools for record companies in how they pitch music and get the music out there. Spotify having become a gate keep whether inadvertently or not is an important point a song that Spotify adds to one of its playlists. We'll get many more streams in one that doesn't and streams translate into money for the rights holders. So having that power is important, especially from a profit, maximizing perspective, if Spotify were primarily concerned with profit, maximizing it might promote content this cheaper for Spotify to stream, maybe it's content. They produce themselves or just content that comes with a lower payment rate than others. It may not sound like a big difference to pay a rights holder point, four cents per stream versus point three cents. But if you're talking hundreds of millions or billions of.

"Eight four cents I should say so not even a full penny per play. So he got a rack up a lot of plays to earn a dollar let alone one hundred sixty seven now that has led some artists to complain about. Spotify saying that this company is benefiting unfairly from the artist's work, and you can see where they're coming from. If they're saying millions of people are listening to my music, and I got one hundred bucks for it that does seem to be pretty unfair. But then Spotify kept operating at a loss. The company itself wasn't making an enormous amount of money, and according to Spotify again, they were giving the vast majority of their revenues back as royalty payments to record labels. So maybe you could argue the record labels had some research. Ability for this since they were so vehement in their negotiations with Spotify. But I think overall it really just points out what a complicated industry, the entertainment industry is in general so Spotify partnered with Facebook for the United States rollout and US users could download Spotify on their computers, and they could create an account using their Facebook. Log in information and other magically connect Spotify to Facebook that helped drive adoption in the US. It also lead to some controversy. There was a two thousand eighteen piece in the New York Times. A report that found Facebook had some pretty liberal data sharing agreements with various partners, including Spotify, and that those agreements gave companies extensive access to user data and that included giving Spotify. Netflix and the Royal Bank of Canada the ability to read private messages between users Yikes. So why would they do that? Why would they give these companies the ability? Well, the thought was at least for Spotify..

"Yet the value of your company that is not making money is going up and up and up to a point where you know, eventually one of two things needs to happen. Either your company needs to stop. Art making money. So that all of that investment in that company is justified or everything falls apart. And everybody loses their shirt and a lot of people are out of jobs. I obviously prefer option a to option b but it still blows my mind that companies like Spotify. Spotify is not alone. In this Twitter is another great example, but companies like Spotify could operate for so long without making money. And and yet still see the value of the company on the rise. It's crazy anyway jumping back to two thousand nine for second in February two thousand nine Spotify drop the requirement for invitations and launched registrations in the UK. So if you wanted a free Spotify account, you could sign up if you were in Europe, and now specifically in the UK you could sign up for a free account right off the bat. It also launched these Spotify mobile service. It was pretty primitive in the early incarnation. But it did exp-. In its offerings to mobile phone users. I think this is good time to mention it was sort of serendipitous issue of timing for Spotify to launch in two thousand eight because apple had introduced the iphone in two thousand seven and apple had effectively opened up the gates for an era of consumer smartphones. Because up to that point smartphones and largely been reserved for executives and for bleeding edge early adopters and no one else.

"They didn't wanna limit that at all understandably. That's not snark. That's just I mean that just makes sense the invitation served another purpose because it also gave the service in Arab exclusivity nothing makes people. Want to try something out more than being told? There's a limit to the number of users who will be accepted, and we saw the same thing when Google plus launched each user would have five invites they could extend to other people. So finding someone on the service who hadn't already dedicated all five invites became a bit of a common pastime. You would look for your friends and say, hey, do any of you have an invite Spotify. And like, I said the service did have two tiers. The free tier was supported by advertising. Still is supported by advertising. It has had a limitation on the number of hours that users could stream music per month. And the service also placed limits on the number of times, you could listen to any particular track over a given amount of time and those were really spotify's way of of bowing to the music industry to get these negotiations to work out. So if you listen to Spotify on the service, you get a commercial between every? Few songs, and if you tried to mute the on commercials, it would just pause the ad. So really you're just putting off the inevitable the desktop application. Would likewise display ads over the user interface. So you can get both audio and visual adds to generate revenue for Spotify and occasionally video ads playing as well. In addition Spotify introduced a premium tier so for a monthly fee, which has changed a few times over the years, but for a certain amount per month..

"But I definitely feel like people have a recent see preference. And that undercuts this notion of you by this content, which Netflix, doesn't it sort of evergreen. And it helps keep people on. And it keeps adding up. And this is part of the reason why I think Netflix doesn't get into sports because it goes stay over quickly. And I think pug cost in a certain sense. A mole exports in this regard in that goes stay relatively quickly. That was a problematically insightful comment by you because there's like fourteen things that I want to respond to so so I think we do multiple levels so start with Spotify sort of an podcast, relative to sort of the record labels. And I think there's an aspect where Spotify is sort of stuck with the record labels. We've debated to a sent can they play chicken with the labels like was really afford to cut Spotify off. And certainly I think there will be pushes around the edges of like how much shared how much of label marketing budgets ends up going back to Spotify. So it's kind of like the money does like circle in exchange for Spotify meal to promote music, which I think is a real value. That's has. I mean, how much is it worth to be promoted by Spotify? It's massive there's always been this sort of pay to play marketing budgets when it comes to radio. I think that's absolutely something that could work out as far Spotify goes, but at the end of the day, this sort of fundamental structure of the value chain where the labels and Spotify are co joined in a way, it's almost like. The way that distributors like Comcast cable distributors were joined with networks like Disney's networks, and like there was a push and pull about wait. We're clearly extracting a lot of money from the customer. The real debate is how do we split that up? That's kind of like what's happening here in some respects. Right. Yeah. That's a good analogy. Well, Dr perfect analogy because Comcast would still sort of geographic sue cities that probably them a little more power, whereas because of the internet Spotify doesn't have geographic exclusivity, so they're competing. It's apple music, for example, which means the negotiating position of the labels is stronger relative Spotify. Then Disney is say relative to Comcast, for example. But I think as sort of a high level this idea that there's this part of the value chain that kind of makes sense to be integrated. But it's actually split into two. And there's a push and pull about that. That is I think the best way to think about and understand Spotify. Relative to music labels. Yeah. I know so say that there's more concentration in the labels which makes it hotter for Spotify. And apple music too. Get in an argument and cut it off like you think about when Comcast or some cable channel really gets in a fight with one of the content produces it can sometimes end up in a world where the cable is like sorry. We couldn't reach an agreement the contents not available, and that's not ideal for them. But there was still enough diversity of channels that they could afford to do it. That's definitely not the case when there are really three labels. And you lose a third of the music, right? And what actually happened in the cable industry over time was more and more consolidation on the sort of channel side to sort of counteract this effect because it actually build towards today. There's only really like four or five cable networks that matter and of those TNT or Turner and Disney are by far the most powerful. And that's why you saw for example, I've we're kind of going down a rat hole. But when they started like sling TV started like the idea of getting the cable bundle over the internet. What were the two that were on there? It was Disney and TNT, and you had all the random Disney channel's like maker TV or something like that why because they had created their own sort of. Of bundle within the bundle to increase their negotiating leverage with distributors originally to negotiate with Comcast. But they could leverage that against new entrance as well. Anyhow, the labels have like perfected that like, there's three labels. And if you lose any one of them urine music service is not viable screwed in its accentuated by the geographic point like you can switch to apple music anywhere in the world whereas changing from Comcast..

"It's still the same kind of experience. But it is it is a good question. I guess it kind of. You have to think about it like someone who gets in the car and on their way to work. They're not listening to the radio. They're probably listening to music streaming were there. They're listening to podcasts in if Spotify can own both those that's a really huge benefit on in kind of leadership position for them. But they will probably have to encourage more people to switch off of that playlist in over to the podcasts in that could be a challenge for them going forward. I heard somebody say that they thought my mind win toward the exclusivity thing. But also, there's a return on investment story here potentially which is every minute that a Spotify subscriber is streaming podcasts instead of music, given the way that the royalty system works that's money that Spotify isn't paying out to the musicians. Now, obviously if it's podcast that they've created. They have there is some sort of cost there that has to be amortized. But I thought that was a really interesting thought as well that maybe it's actually a good business move for Spotify to try in convert a bunch of music listeners into podcast listeners. Just because it saves on the royalty payments that that modifies paying especially when some people feel that they're paying not enough. And that they might end up having to pay more later intr-. Interesting. I think also it's interesting look at the fact that Spotify hasn't really been able to figure out how to work around the labels..

"The label out of Jiro Salvin in in GIO saw than in in India that and the idea what those labels isn't to keep the music only on those streaming platforms label artists on on. Spotify label are played on apple music and other services, right? It's just Spotify gets to feature them. They get to exclusive they get to get early releases. And so I could see them doing that with podcast talent to saying. Hey, what's working for music artists? We can also do with podcasters. In fact, I think it would be super smart for apple music to do the same thing because apple does have exclusive recordings and live concerts and things that they put out only on apple music, at least initially and doing that with podcast when you're the predominant podcast provider out there. I mean, fifty I think it's fifty plus percent of people listen to their podcasts through I tunes somehow. I I think they might be missing something there by not snapping up a company like inlet. I get it. I hope sorry to interrupt you. I just I just hope what they do is is not. Dangled carrots in front of me the way say Star Trek discovery is a CB L CBS all access like I I don't I don't like the whole. Here's a little taste now come over here and pay for thing. I know that's not what they're saying. And we don't even know how this is all gonna play you mean like like Netflix does stranger things where they're like. Well, you can only get it if you pay for net flex China. I mean, you make a good point. That's like isn't a bunch of independent creators making thing we should all just have open access to there's a there's a core philosophical problem. I have that. Maybe we don't need anymore. Maybe I'm to two thousand four and my brain here. And I'm just like, yeah. Podcast, man. It's the new way we're all open. Everybody can get it. And maybe that's starting to change. Everyone's two different things here. I would hate it. If Spotify started walling off a lot of stuff. In fact, that was my biggest problem when they started adding podcast is you had to do it only through them like you couldn't they weren't. Just opening it up to anybody. And one thing they need to add to their app is the ability to put in a customer assess feet, right? He can't take any of our patriotic. You are else and put them in Spotify yet and a lot of people like to do that sort of thing not just for our show. So I'm with you there like leave make open podcasting part of your service. But I don't think that prevents them from having a few exclusives. And in house things as long as they they allow those things to go out on the open market at some point. Sorry, you you're gonna say something totally cut you off. It's okay. I I have been following spotify's introduction into the podcast world for a while. And wondered why more wasn't happening? There was sort of this us. But if I get into podcast cool. I guess we all work in podcasting. I'm always interested in these sorts of things, and it all seems a little stall. I knew folks who couldn't get a hold of anybody over at Spotify to figure out why they couldn't get their podcast featured and the anchor acquisition that acquisition is interesting. But the anchor echoes mission is so much more interesting because the whole point of anchor is anybody could do this. We will walk you through it. You can produce at podcast from your phone. That's what you wanna do. We have lots of tools. We have folks here who are.
