"How interesting would it be if they made that More accessible whether it's on the web or on other platforms. i don't know i'm probably talking crazy. Talk now but it's you know something around messages is likely to be announced right. Last year they showed off the m one processor for the first time. What updates are we expecting when it comes to apple silicon and just sort of their general strategy for these new macbooks and max. Yeah this whole transitions done really well. If you look at the reviews we done on scene at as well as other places. The perception is that these chips. Which if you remember are designed using very similar technology. Almost the same technologies. What's built into the iphones and ipads so. These are smartphone and tablet processors that they've done really well transitioning them to be computer processors. And so now. I think first off they're gonna. They're gonna take their round of applause. Which is what they did last time around when they switched to intel year after that. They're like look how great this has gone to look on. They deserve that. It has gone really smoothly for them. And i think the next thing they're going to do also is to talk about what the next step is because all we have gotten so far are what i would call the consumer end of these chips right. They've been the kind of entry level in the mid tier level they've been in the macbook air in the mac mini in the lower end. I max in the lower end macbook pros and what that means is that they were great for that. But it's very clear. Apple has decided they're still selling intel versions of the macbook pros. And the i max. And it's very clear that they have something planned. They're right. They they're going to transition away from intel. And i think the question is how. What are these chips can do. And i think hopefully we're going to find out during wwe see. I know there's been a river out there about a whole os which we haven't heard about before what you think. That's about yeah. Apple is part of a partnership actually between samsung and google and a couple of other companies. I know it's crazy to think these companies that hate each other also worked together sometimes but this kind of Group they have the standard. They're creating called matter and the whole idea Which we've written about on sina stephen shanklin's on a great job on this is really to try standardized a lot of this smart home technology. You know right now when i moved into the place i am. Currently we had some smart. We had a smart doorbell. We had smart light switches and all sorts of other stuff and they all spoke different languages right. The doorbell spoke rings language. The white switches spo two zero wave. I had another thing that was that was running language called zig be and so it's just kind of annoying because suddenly all these things have to somehow somehow work together so matter is supposed to help fix this. That's why it matters. And so i think it'll be really interesting to see. What apple announces around. That my guess is that homo. S whatever this is will be fair. They're kind of description of the technologies they're building to victory easily work with all these other standards and really make it easy if you if you're an apple developer. Hey just use this technology and you'll be able to talk to any lights which you want which i'm totally fine with if it works all right. Well lastly any other surprises or a thing. You're hoping to see from d. Say yeah i mean i am perpetually fascinated by the conversation around apple's vr. Glasses you may remember a couple years ago Broke the news of how apple was working on.

"Quantum computing is the darling of the tech industry. Got a big shoutout last week at google. I o conference. These superpower will eventually be smart enough to crack our toughest encryption. I'm roger chang. This is your daily charge here. Talk prospects of a post. Quantum encryption world is our own big brains. Stephen shanklin welcome schenk. Thank you quality is. It's a huge thing. It's a big buzzword attack world. And i think most people gather that generally means it's more powerful and faster but could you just breakdown how quantum computing works and how it runs differently from say the supercomputers that are out there today shirt so quantum computing relies on the really weird physical behavior of very very small things like atoms and there are a bunch of different ways that different companies are trying to build quantum computers fundamentally they all involve something called a cubit so regular conventional computer stores data and a bit which is either a one or zero cubit. Through one of these weird physical properties can be both a one and zero at the same time you pile a whole bunch of these cubits together you interconnect them and you can solve different class of computing problems so most people don't think that quantum computers are going to replace classical computers but they are going to be able to tackle a number of problems that are just simply out of reach of conventional computers. So even with monumentally powerful supercomputer when these ones that cost hundreds of millions of dollars. There are some problems that they just can't tackle over would take them billions of years perhaps to crack conventional strong hard encryption today. Encryption is the technology that protects all your messages on the internet. When you're buying something online or downloading a bank statement from your bank or having a private chat with your spouse all these things are protected with encryption. It turns out that one of the things that quantum computers are going to be good at later is breaking that. Encryption right you. That's important point because you save later because computers as they are right. Now aren't quite mature enough. How long do you think. Or how long do experts think that qualifications will actually be able to start cracking. So these countries are easy crack lizard corruptions. It is not clear so the progress today in quantum computing one of the founding experts in the field. I talked to accept lloyd. He's a professor at mit when he got started. He said it was Was like we're all living in mud. Huts and now..

"So you have nice explainer on how orbits working and you talk to one of these professors who called orbits roadways in space. I i like that. I like that idea. How does orbiting around the earth work in. How do scientists and engineers actually ensure something like a satellite maintains a stable orbit around us orbits. I think are under appreciated. What you might not realize spaces actually pretty close. It's only about sixty miles up. Which yeah okay. That's a lot but you know if you get in your car and drive sixty miles. It's not going to some entirely new zone in the universe right but space is very different. It turns out the hard part about space is not getting up sixty miles. It's getting so that you're moving. Horizontally fast enough to stay in orbit. You come right back but if you go horizontally fast enough you stay in orbit. And that's where that roadways in space comment is germane because what it means. Basically you're going fast enough that you don't fall down and hit the earth you don't go you stay up there and it's it's pretty neat. There's some atmospheric drag but mostly if you put a satellite in orbit it just keeps whizzing around the earth. And that's pretty remarkable one of the actually. I was researching this story. What am i. The my favorite parts of it was looking at what is called newton's cannonball so isaac newton right gravity lights l. This stuff back in the sixteen hundreds he had actually a really good thought experiment that reveals a pretty clear way. How orbits work. he said. Imagine you're up at the of a very high mountain and you shoot a canon ball horizontally now if you shoot it. With a certain speed goes near flies a little ways and plops down hits. The earth fired a little harder. It goes farther and it's the earth but if you fire it at just the right speed the gravity that pulls the cannonball down exactly balances the curvature of the earth so it just keeps on going around the earth now and the real world. That's not possible because during the mountains. High enough in there's a resistance and all that kind of thing but it still shows. I think pretty elegantly. What in orbit is it's this balance of of an object spacecraft falling down because of gravity but also moving horizontally fast enough that it that it keeps on going around earth in in an orbit. Well that's an interesting trick because you talk about moving horizontally at the right speed. When i see rockets launched their. They're launching up vertically right not not horizontally. So how do you get from that. Tremendous bruce up vertically to a point where it goes horizontal and stable enough to actually maintain its orbit chirp. This is one of the tricks of rocket. Rocketry says why when people talk about rocket science. It's not easy right rockets. Actually almost immediately start turning sideways right after launch so at launch they go up and they use a lot of fuel to go up but the majority of the fuel they use is to go sideways so when you watch space shuttle or space x or any of these rockets you'll note that it starts tipping over towards the east usually and it tips over more and more and more and more. If you watch a spacex launch they actually have a very nice <hes>. Three d computer view that shows the track of the rockets and you can see that very rapidly. It's going sideways more than it's going up. So the vast majority of the energy needed to put a rocket into orbit is pushing it sideways. Not up if you look at some of these rockets like new shepherd from blue origin. Jeff bezos says rockets startup. Those just go up and down. And that's actually a lot easier than going sideways. Which is what spacex does when it gets a satellite into orbit or in iss launch capsule with some astronauts in it. It's a lot harder to go sideways. Yeah you know you talk about this rocket science. This is not easy stuff calculating you know when it needs attorney or how it gets to the pre velocity. It actually maintains or like. How difficult is that to calculate. It's pretty difficult and you. It's not just the calculation it's also the execution so you have to steer the rocket and what you have to realize about a rocket is. It's you're sitting on top of a controlled explosion so you can think of something like unisom. Tnt blowing up or something. It's catastrophic huge release of energy. A rocket is the same kind of thing. It's a chemical explosion and you just control it just enough that the thrust in one direction. So it's pretty hard to get this balanced just right. It's easier these days because you have advanced. Computers have accelerometers all over the place that no just exactly how much thrust is pointing which direction and you have radar tracking stations that can give lots of details about the launch. So it's easier than it was gonna by apollo missions fifty years ago or something like that but yeah it's still hard.

Google's Fu project is adding PWA capabilities to chromium which would then show up Microsoft Edge, opera, brave, Google, chrome, and others, but apple safari is not chromium based and on i. o s you can only use browsers based on Safaris Web kit engine. So adding something, chromium doesn't make it work on Ios or safari, so PWA features only show up.

"Apple, Google, or who the biggest players in technology and fundamentally different ways of seeing where the Internet is going, and whoever wins out in this big conflict may have a huge impact on how we experienced the web broader. Chang and this is your charge. To break this down is see nets, reporter and resident giant Brain Stephen Shanklin welcome shank high, so Google and apple been rivals on many different levels for for many years. At what is this new battlefront? Look like well. This is basically a disagreement or a difference of opinion about where the web should go, and what the right balance is between Web APPS that run on the web in native APPs deployed into all the programming interfaces you'll see on an iphone or on windows or on Android so it's web versus native. Tunnel little bit about their respective positions. What's really informing? Why they're taking the positions, they are well. Google was born on the web and it is a huge fan of the web, and it's chrome. Browser dominates usage of the web so as you might expect. It's really a big fan of the web improving what the web can do. Make it as interactive as possible. Make It. As easy as possible to build advanced Web APPs that can do a lot of different things, basically Web APPs that powerful is native APPs apple on the other hand. It's obviously hugely successful with its iphone. In one of the reasons that's been successful as all the native APPs that run on the iphone and of course, apple gets a lot of money, not just from selling iphones, but also from taking its cut of. The fees that developers have to pay. Somebody buys something through Apple's APPs store, so apple is not. It doesn't disliked the web, but it has a bigger affinity for native APPs than Google does yes. Oh I use apps obviously on my phone. I browse the Internet to. Why should I care about this dispute? What really this boils down to sort of a difference of philosophy? Are you more of a fan of an open computing platform like the web or you more a fan of native APPs so that? That openness has a lot of advantages. If you decide to dump your windows laptop and moved to an IPAD, then that's going to be easier if the web is really at the center of your experience. If you're somebody who uses a lot of native APPS, you might like those on your iphone, but that might make it hard to switch to Android, because you're kind of walked into the apple iphone APPs on the other hand. Native APPs often are a lot more responsive a lot more powerful so. Baked often offering a better user experience, so it's about a difference in philosophy. What's more important to you? Each side certainly has its advantages and disadvantages. Yeah, one one way Google's trying China address this with their Web APPs. Is Something called progressive? Web APPs, which which are more fully featured talk about that. What what are what are they look like? And would we actually see some these progressive web? APPS pop up. Are here today Google? Helped coined the term and its aggressively pushing a bunch of technology that makes Progressive Web APPs better PWA's. You'll see that a lot in a tech circles, so yes as you said it's basically more of a packaged web. APP So right now you typically use your browser open <unk>. A website do what you need to do on the website. If you're using progressive web APP, you might prompt that says hey. Do you want to save this to your home screen? Do you WanNa? Say this year start menu, and then you can save that as an APP you commend launched later without having to go through the browser, their wad of different features in Progressive Web. APPS that make them work faster. Make them work offline and generally improve the experience compared to a native APP. These are gradually. Increasing in power utility, there are a lot of companies like Uber in twitter and starbucks that have that liked them and have had pretty good success with them, so they're definitely <hes> increasing in importance I guess you can say it's basically the latest phase in improving the web web used to be this foundation for static documents studied with hyper links, and it got gradually more and more Interactive Progressive Web APPs the latest vanguard of that interactivity. Fred to a you set up. Up these two sides pretty nicely. What which side has more support backing? It depends on who you're asking about so web developers love power. They love features, and they love chrome, so the web developers no question they really like Google way of thinking in a lot of them. Don't like apples. Speed of improving its safari browser one of the big issues is that on iphones and IPADS? Safari is obviously not just the default browser, but also even if you're using chrome. It's apple's safari technology, so apple really controls. What's what goes on on an IPHONE or an IPAD? So the web developers really bristle about that. If you're talking about the average user Heidel really think most people know the difference mostly at this stage. If you're developing markets, places that don't have a many powerful devices, don't have very fast networks often, the web has a lot more urban advantage sometimes wetbacks to be much smaller and faster and easier to use than a native where you have to go through an APP store. Download a big head, the APP yet in. Terms of WHO's likely to win. Is there any kind of indication or still still too early I? Don't think either side is going to vanquish the other. I think the web is pretty healthy in is going to continue to be so I think native. APPS are not going to die, even for example, twitter is a fan, but if you load the twitter mobile, APP in some places, it'll say hey, have you? You tried our twitter native APP so it's not it's not really clear that one side of the other is going to actually prevail what the big question is which way it's going to tilt in the future and bats kind of uncertain what it looks to me at this stage is that the web developers and some people actually use the web like these advanced features, and there's pressure on apple two in. The features it builds into safari. Safaris team is growing. Apple has been adding some of these features. If not always as fast as Google would like also, there are a lot of allies that Google has like Intel and Microsoft, which is a very big <unk> powerful. Ally that are pushing this web direction so I think the web will steadily get more powerful, but native apps are certainly not going away. Okay, let me in the way you describe it with between absent browsers I think for a lot of folks. I tend to use more APPs on my phone. The expect you said the experiences, a bit more fully fleshed out likewise when I'm on my computer, I tend to use my browser a lot more rather than apps unless there's really specific program like. Is it just? Is it a matter of? Being a phone, the desktop experience, or has that plane the argument? There's definitely a difference between what happens on your laptop in what happens on your phone browsing on your phone? Even though apple actually helped pioneer mobile browsers with the first iphone way back in two thousand seven. It still is not as good as a native APP generally speaking. So that initial disadvantage I think really has persisted. A lot of people were trained to look for APPS in the APP store, not go to mobile websites that were broken or didn't work well or limited or just said for example you go to the yelp website, it says install the YELP APP. So you know there are a lot of disincentives to using the mobile web. Google's trying to reduce those, but there's still a huge gap then when you compare it to a laptop where a lot of people can just live in a web browser. Maybe they need photoshop or Microsoft Word or some other. Video or photo editor running on their laptop, but mostly the web is how a lot of us can get worked on the laptop. That dynamic I think. It's changing I think the web is getting more powerful on phones, but it's not clear to me that it's getting so much more powerful that it's really going to be the primary way we interact on our phones. I think especially for the APPS that you use a lot one to ten twenty times a day. Those are probably going to be native APPS for most people. I'm just trying to get a sense for our listeners. What what this actually means, if one side wins like what what is Apple's vision of the future look like versus Google's vision with feature well I think way it. Shakes out, it's not so much that one side of the other is going to win, it's that it's going to tilt one way or the other and I think in the apple do more priority on native apps spend more time in walled gardens silos I'm not sure what the right term is exactly, but basically more time on one companies platform where it's harder to switch out of that email service in that music streaming service in. In that collection of APPs The web vision. It's a bit more open loosey-goosey. You might have to do more vetting yourself. Is this service worth my money? Is this email service safe to use? So it's there's less hand holding, but it's more open so kind of a different <hes> <unk> one is one is arguably easier on the customer, but if you do want to make changes or control your destiny, it gets a bit harder. Shack this is the first in a series looking at this issue. What what else you have on tap this week are also gonna be looking at some of these security. Implications of Web APPs the more power you give to the web, the more the attack surface gets bigger, the more ways there are for a hackers to attack your browser and your entire phone and laptop, and we're going to be looking specifically at twitter, which as a pretty interesting story about why it made the choices it did. Did with its own web APP, so it's sort of a a look at how it sees the world. Obviously, twitter is a pretty important application right now as a native APP and web APP. We thought there'd be interesting example to look into their decision. Great thanks for joining me.

What really this boils down to sort of a difference of philosophy? Are you more of a fan of an open computing platform like the web or you more a fan of native APPs so that? That openness has a lot of advantages. If you decide to dump your windows laptop and moved to an IPAD, then that's going to be easier if the web is really at the center of your experience. If you're somebody who uses a lot of native APPS, you might like those on your iphone, but that might make it hard to switch to Android, because you're kind of walked into the apple iphone APPs on the other hand. Native APPs often are a lot more responsive a lot more powerful so. Baked often offering a better user experience, so it's about a difference in philosophy. What's more important to you? Each side certainly has its advantages and disadvantages. Yeah, one one way Google's trying China address this with their Web APPs. Is Something called progressive? Web APPs, which which are more fully featured talk about that. What what are what are they look like? And would we actually see some these progressive web? APPS pop up. Are here today Google? Helped coined the term and its aggressively pushing a bunch of technology that makes Progressive Web APPs better PWA's. You'll see that a lot in a tech circles, so yes as you said it's basically more of a packaged web. APP So right now you typically use your browser open A website do what you need to do on the website. If you're using progressive web APP, you might prompt that says hey. Do you want to save this to your home screen? Do you WanNa? Say this year start menu, and then you can save that as an APP you commend launched later without having to go through the browser, their wad of different features in Progressive Web. APPS that make them work faster. Make them work offline and generally improve the experience compared to a native APP. These are gradually. Increasing in power utility, there are a lot of companies like Uber in twitter and starbucks that have that liked them and have had pretty good success with them, so they're definitely increasing in importance I guess you can say it's basically the latest phase in improving the web web used to be this foundation for static documents studied with hyper links, and it got gradually more and more Interactive Progressive Web APPs the latest vanguard of that interactivity. Fred to a you set up. Up these two sides pretty nicely. What which side has more support backing? It depends on who you're asking about so web developers love power. They love features, and they love chrome, so the web developers no question they really like Google way of thinking in a lot of them. Don't like apples. Speed of improving its safari browser one of the big issues is that on iphones and IPADS? Safari is obviously not just the default browser, but also even if you're using chrome. It's apple's safari technology, so apple really controls. What's what goes on on an IPHONE or an IPAD? So the web developers really bristle about that. If you're talking about the average user Heidel really think most people know the difference mostly at this stage. If you're developing markets, places that don't have a many powerful devices, don't have very fast networks often, the web has a lot more urban advantage sometimes wetbacks to be much smaller and faster and easier to use than a native where you have to go through an APP store. Download a big head, the APP yet in. Terms of WHO's likely to win. Is there any kind of indication or still still too early I? Don't think either side is going to vanquish the other. I think the web is pretty healthy in is going to continue to be so I think native. APPS are not going to die, even for example, twitter is a fan, but if you load the twitter mobile, APP in some places, it'll say hey, have you? You tried our twitter native APP so it's not it's not really clear that one side of the other is going to actually prevail what the big question is which way it's going to tilt in the future and bats kind of uncertain what it looks to me at this stage is that the web developers and some people actually use the web like these advanced features, and there's pressure on apple two in. The features it builds into safari. Safaris team is growing. Apple has been adding some of these features. If not always as fast as Google would like also, there are a lot of allies that Google has like Intel and Microsoft, which is a very big powerful. Ally that are pushing this web direction so I think the web will steadily get more powerful, but native apps are certainly not going away. Okay, let me in the way you describe it with between absent browsers I think for a lot of folks. I tend to use more APPs on my phone. The expect you said the experiences, a bit more fully fleshed out likewise when I'm on my computer, I tend to use my browser a lot more rather than apps unless there's really specific program like. Is it just? Is it a matter of? Being a phone, the desktop experience, or has that plane the argument? There's definitely a difference between what happens on your laptop in what happens on your phone browsing on your phone? Even though apple actually helped pioneer mobile browsers with the first iphone way back in two thousand seven. It still is not as good as a native APP generally speaking. So that initial disadvantage I think really has persisted. A lot of people were trained to look for APPS in the APP store, not go to mobile websites that were broken or didn't work well or limited or just said for example you go to the yelp website, it says install the YELP APP. So you know there are a lot of disincentives to using the mobile web. Google's trying to reduce those, but there's still a huge gap then when you compare it to a laptop where a lot of people can just live in a web browser. Maybe they need photoshop or Microsoft Word or some other. Video or photo editor running on their laptop, but mostly the web is how a lot of us can get worked on the laptop. That dynamic I think. It's changing I think the web is getting more powerful on phones, but it's not clear to me that it's getting so much more powerful that it's really going to be the primary way we interact on our phones. I think especially for the APPS that you use a lot one to ten twenty times a day. Those are probably going to be native APPS for most people. I'm just trying to get a sense for our listeners. What what this actually means, if one side wins like what what is Apple's vision of the future look like versus Google's vision with feature well I think way it. Shakes out, it's not so much that one side of the other is going to win, it's that it's going to tilt one way or the other and I think in the apple do more priority on native apps spend more time in walled gardens silos I'm not sure what the right term is exactly, but basically more time on one companies platform where it's harder to switch out of that email service in that music streaming service in. In that collection of APPs The web vision. It's a bit more open loosey-goosey. You might have to do more vetting yourself. Is this service worth my money? Is this email service safe to use? So it's there's less hand holding, but it's more open so kind of a different one is one is arguably easier on the customer, but if you do want to make changes or control your destiny, it gets a bit harder. Shack this is the first in a series looking at this issue. What what else you have on tap this week are also gonna be looking at some of these security. Implications of Web APPs the more power you give to the web, the more the attack surface gets bigger, the more ways there are for a hackers to attack your browser and your entire phone and laptop, and we're going to be looking specifically at twitter, which as a pretty interesting story about why it made the choices it did. Did with its own web APP, so it's sort of a a look at how it sees the world. Obviously, twitter is a pretty important application right now as a native APP and web APP. We thought there'd be interesting example to look into their decision. Great thanks for joining me.

"Apple, Google, or who the biggest players in technology and fundamentally different ways of seeing where the Internet is going, and whoever wins out in this big conflict may have a huge impact on how we experienced the web broader. Chang and this is your charge. To break this down is see nets, reporter and resident giant Brain Stephen Shanklin welcome shank high, so Google and apple been rivals on many different levels for for many years. At what is this new battlefront? Look like well. This is basically a disagreement or a difference of opinion about where the web should go, and what the right balance is between Web APPS that run on the web in native APPs deployed into all the programming interfaces you'll see on an iphone or on windows or on Android so it's web versus native. Tunnel little bit about their respective positions. What's really informing? Why they're taking the positions, they are well. Google was born on the web and it is a huge fan of the web, and it's chrome. Browser dominates usage of the web so as you might expect. It's really a big fan of the web improving what the web can do. Make it as interactive as possible. Make It. As easy as possible to build advanced Web APPs that can do a lot of different things, basically Web APPs that powerful is native APPs apple on the other hand. It's obviously hugely successful with its iphone. In one of the reasons that's been successful as all the native APPs that run on the iphone and of course, apple gets a lot of money, not just from selling iphones, but also from taking its cut of. The fees that developers have to pay. Somebody buys something through Apple's APPs store, so apple is not. It doesn't disliked the web, but it has a bigger affinity for native APPs than Google does yes. Oh I use apps obviously on my phone. I browse the Internet to. Why should I care about this dispute?

The surprising danger that deepfakes pose to the presidential elections

"Deep fakes. Those digital manipulated videos. That look scary. Real pose a threat to the upcoming presidential election. Real danger will surprise you. I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge me reporter John Salesman. Thanks for joining me Joan. Yeah it's great to be back on the daily charge so we've all heard of deep fix but you don't think there's actually a real risk in say candid footage of Joe Biden. Donald trump actually saying something crazy and swing voters. What's real danger deep fix with this election? The Deepak experts that I talk to yes. They said that they're not most worried about a candidate depict like that like something where Donald Trump or Joe Biden is admitting to a hot button. Crime or saying something really inflammatory with. They're more concerned about are two things. One is known as the Liars Dividend. And that's this concept that as more people know that the fakes exists that there can be these completely false highly realistic out there. It gives people who are caught in the act and are guilty more credibility when they deny something when they denial legit video by saying. Oh you heard deep fix. You can't trust what you see anymore. And that just muddies the waters and makes it harder for people to understand and trust what is truth. And what is fiction? Yeah that's that sounds very dangerous because that's like it damages the credibility of basically everything right. Because if you could point to this one thing is oh see this fake. It applies to everything essentially right. Yeah it makes it harder. You know we. Our brains have been wired for so long to believe what we see. And we've learned to you. Know as Photoshop came along and as other sorts of media manipulation have come a long. We've been able to catch up and at least be more skeptical of those but because video is tricking your eyes and your ears because the AI that powers depicts is so sophisticated and so good and making things look real. That's really really deep wiring in your brain telling you all these signals like trust this. Trust this trust this and so when people start saying. Hey you can't trust that anymore. It just means that it's harder for anyone to understand what's even real and speaking of the AI aspect of things you have a nice breakdown of how deep fix work like how how are these videos created defects are created by a kind of artificial intelligence called Ganz that's short for generative adversarial networks and the the the basic way that they work is they have to neural networks. Networks are a kind of learning. That's based on how the kind of inspired by how the brain works so imagine that these two neural networks are actually an artist and an art critic and they're locked in rooms right next to each other. The artist creates a painting trying to make something that looks like a masterpiece. And he shuffles that painting into a stack of other paintings that actually are works by the go or we're in war or whatever they take that stack moving into art critics room and art critic picks out which ones he thinks are a forgeries. The ones that aren't the real masterpieces. That feedback goes back to the artists and the artists gets better and better and better at figuring out how to make a really convincing fake masterpiece up to the point where he's able to he or she is able to. This artificial neural network is able to make something that can trick the critic into thinking that what is fake is actually real. That's how these sort of artificial intelligence systems work. So I mean that sounds complicated by no love this kind of working superfast background but how easy is it for someone to actually make a deep? Do It depends what kind of deep lake we're talking about. You know there are open source tools to make the kind of celebrity face swaps the Elon. Musk sauna babies had sort of thing. They're open source tool sick at that. They're not as easy. Those aren't as easy to make us like a meam or an animated Gif. You need to have technological savvy Know How to get. You need to have a pretty powerful computer you need. Large data sets unique things. That are more difficult than like making taking a photo putting some white text on it of course so those are berry accessible with are kind of acceptable. But what we're talking about here talking about election defects now. These are the kind of things all the experts that I talked to say. You know we have a lower hurdle to suspend disbelief when we're looking at Elon. Musk space on a baby. But when you're presented with a video of a candidate for president or the president of the United States we have a luckily human beings. Have they kind of set a higher bar that you have to clear to actually believe that it's true so what that means is kind of very sophisticated high end e fix that would threaten on election? Those are really reserved for people that work at universities or research centres powerful computers or state actors that have that kind of computing power like China at their disposal. So the idea here. That Kennedy fakes are less of a risk. Like what are some of the defects? We should be worried about what people are more worried about aren't necessarily these candidates it's more an a deep lake that attacks your faith in the election rather than your trust in a candidate so instead of having what are the reasons is at the state in our political discourse where we're very divided. I think everyone agrees that we're divided and our our opinions seem more entrenched than they had before and so in that environment it's harder to convince or sway voters either way with a fake video. You know like if you were to make a video of Donald Trump's hair flying off or something like it will only solidify your beliefs if you liked on trump you'll be like that's a fake. I like Donald Trump. Even more. If you don't like him you'll be like he looks Tom. I dislike them even more. And so a more cunning way to use a deep fake to disrupt the US election would be to create a deep fake of say like an authoritative news anchor or a governor or authority. Figure who not as many people know saying things like. We're in the age of Kobe. Nineteen we have marsh. It's two days before election martial law. You cannot go to your polling place or to create like news. Anchors saying there There are you know there are some sort of you. Know armed militants some sort of supremacists or militants. That are arming themselves. Going to polling places in a specific neighborhood these kind of people need to be scared about showing up to vote and in that way you can suppress votes and you can also after the vote undermine people's faith in the result if you have an authoritative figure saying something about how we have footage of vote-switching from trump to Biden That could so this sort of distrust not only in going to the election but after the election in the results themselves. That's an interesting point because it's it's not necessarily like a defect that would make Joe Biden. Say something like I killed the spurs like this is these are actually kind of believable is right. I think that's your point like this is a lot more coming. It's lot a lot more nuance but I think. That's what makes the lila easier to swallow the fact that it is all what you're saying. It's pretty plausible sounded. Yeah and the other thing to keep in mind. Is that a candidate. Deep fake would. It's kind of like this Yin and Yang. Were like the the head of the snake is eating the tail like a candidate. D. Fake would only be successful if it basically goes viral and lots of people see it right but when it goes viral. One thing that the. Us has say what you will about the US press core. We have a robust free Press we have a robust free press entrenched in our country other countries where there are dictatorships or more emerging democracies. They don't have that quite at their disposal as much as we do. So if a candidate of the president or Joe Biden were to come out. We do have the capacity here built into our democracy to have a force of people trying quickly as possible. To debunk it. Whereas if you were somebody that wanted to make a deep fake that could actually just robbed or suppress boats. It would be more successful if it doesn't go viral if it's not something that draws the attention of an entire press corps. That's entirely focused on this on this election. And so and that way could also kind of be the most successful not going viral kind of existing on the radar enough to disrupt people in say one or two counties that are really important in a swing states. And that wouldn't draw the attention of a national press corps debunk it well defects captial of tension and headlines is really just sort of one way to manipulate the Info right like this. We're looking at it a little bit too narrow. If we're just focusing on defects is that is that the case. Yeah you know. It's it makes sense that people would be scared of depicts because you know as we talked about earlier it. It undermines the species assumption. That if I see it I can believe it. And so that's why. There's a lot of fear around deep fakes and what they could pinch the harm that could potentially cause but the reality is you know because of some of these things we talked before about. How really sophisticated deep picks are still inaccessible to a wide right of people? That's not true for like you said memes for slowing down video like the Pelosi sounding drunk video that went viral. Those are kinds of media manipulations. Sometimes people refer to them as shallow fakes or cheap. Fix that have the power of being cheap easy and still incredibly effective. And so. That's why you know. One of the Edward Snowden slayer. Aclu lawyer this comparison. He said that you know looking at election information manipulation by only looking at depict looking at it through a straw. You're just not seeing. You're seeing something really scary. But you're not seeing the much. Bigger picture of how things could be disrupted in twenty twenty oxygen. Russia played a big role in. You know clouding the two thousand sixteen elections with misinformation disinformation. And you know you talked about how it takes a lot of resources for these fakes to be effective. Obviously Russia's a country with a lot of resources like should we should we be worried about Russia antiques. Well so I talked to one expert on the national security locations of depicts his. Name's Clint Watts. He testified to Congress. He testified to senators about just the sort of thing and he says you know anything's possible but Russia and their disinformation tactics. They are more skilled at the art of this information than they are at the science of deep fakery so they although anything's possible. Russia has lots of oil money could always who knows what Russia could do. But he's more interested in the potential in China or other places China in particular as a place. Where China has you know. They have supercomputers I think Stephen Shanklin expert on nonstop. He always has that but I think they have. More supercomputers than we have in the US or whatever compute they've got lots of supercomputers which is important for making the takes no for sure beyond supercomputers they've invested heavily artificial intelligence. The one leads in the world in a appear that neural network. That's that stuff is a recipe for a lot of potential problems. Down the line. Yeah in China they have completely synthetic television personalities like deep fake news anchors so that a very authoritative anchor can report on something without actually take time out of his day to report on it The fact that a country like that if if they wanted to do that then they could They are the ones that are in the best position to create a deep fake That would disrupt global geopolitics. But you know. State actors could create other kinds of deep fakes. That could cause other kinds of problems. Those are in the world so you know it's just doomsday scenario. No matter how you look at it well that's that's glorious and very positive Just lastly I mean I think we can all figure out that Elon. Musk is not really a baby. But are there giving advice for for like how despotic fake. Or or just a you know how to be a little bit more vigilant when looking at some of the content that surfaces around the web. Yeah so I asked everyone. I talk to you all the extra Saturday. I asked this question. And there's no silver bullet like little loophole that you can find for understanding it's fake For debunking it on your own. If it's a real deep fake than your eyes won't save you like watching it. You won't be able to tell that it's like that's the whole point of a defense that it's an AI. Created where the power of this artificial intelligence outstrips like. Our brains are very attuned human faces. But they're not so fast that they can keep up with how well deep fake technology can progress. And so you know. We don't have computers in our brains that are as powerful as supercomputers at research universities So the advice for normal people that are like hey how do I even know of this fake? It really comes down to like basic hygiene about what you're exposed to if you see a video and it seems like it's so outlandish that it couldn't be true than might not be and if you see a video that is clearly something trying to appeal to some person some segments inflammatory instincts. That's also reason to be skeptical defects just mean. Everyone needs to do what we should be doing with other kinds of manipulated media slowdown. And think before you share. It's hard to do and it's even harder when we're talking about deep ix but it's just as important to act that way what you're presented with a really realistic video as you would be if you presented with a mean or like a cheap slowed down video of a drunk. Nancy Pelosi Right. Yeah well. That's good advice in general whether it's an article or D do a little bit of Homework. Thinks through what you're actually looking at

"With the corona virus pandemic exploding around the world. Some countries have taken too aggressive. Contact TRACING. Identify how it's spreading. There may be a way to do this without invading your privacy. I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge. What Me Stephen. Shanklin were the biggest brains at CNN. And someone who can understand when folks from MIT get involved with this project to get everyone in the same footing talk a bit about contact tracing. What is it? This is a very old technique for dealing with epidemics or pandemics where you basically A healthcare professional interview. Somebody who has whatever disease finds out who they've been in contact with that. Lets them trace? What the origin of diseases and also potentially figure out where it's going next What which people that person has been in contact with? Who might have got afterwards? So it's a very old technique for tracking disease figuring out who needs to be quarantined or sequestered needs to shelter in place or be treated and the problem is it doesn't scale. It's something you need a medical professional to do. And if you're looking at something like cove in nineteen the disease caused by corona virus. It's really hard to talk to. Every person in the world I mean this is affected hundreds of thousands of people. So it's not very easy to do. Large-scale contact tracing definitely. It's actually hit over a million at this point so Talk about this product. This basically like everything else in the world recruiting for it and so talk a little bit about this Private automated contact tracing or packed yet packed. So this is a project done by a team of people in. It is spearheading the effort but involves a lot of other universities as well including Brown Boston University Carnegie Mellon and some other folks as well researchers at a lot of different institutions. The way it works is it uses. Your Phone's Bluetooth connection to broadcast digital. Id Number from your phone into listen to digital. Id numbers being broadcast from other people's phones. There's no handshaking or or any kind of actual acknowledgment but each phone keeps a record of the digital. Id's it's come in contact with and what happens next is if you are if you test positive. You can voluntarily load the list of ideas you've come in contact with and if you haven't tested positive you can go to a central server and download the list of ideas and see if there's a match with your phone and that lets you find out if you potentially have been exposed. Gotcha and so this is. This is actually really interesting because the use of this digital ID. That's sort of the key here for keeping private right because with contact. Tracing I mean requires a lot of information. You know. You're you're you're giving all your details as well as all folks you've been talking to this sort of solves that problem of kind of keeping things someone anonymous right. Yeah exactly so there. There are two interesting comparisons. Here's the first is to traditional contact. Tracing a lot of people when they enter the healthcare system they might be okay participating in that kind of assistant. But if you're not you might not want to actually share all that detail But the other comparison is other ways of doing this large scale contact tracing with an APP so one obvious way might think about doing it is sharing a GPS log a of recording of everywhere. You've been your phone can very easily keep now. That's relatively easily done but you might not want to do that. Might not want to share that with the authorities are all the world so what the interesting thing is about. Packed is it. Lets you find out who you've been? Excuse me it lets you find out that you have been in contact with somebody but it doesn't tell you where it happened or who it was with so this let's this contact tracing happen in the large scale way without actually sharing personal details. It stand. Tell me some of the some of the folks behind this because there are some pretty big names behind his project right. Yeah there are some very interesting names To the people are Ron revest and audience. Jamir Those are to the people involved in the RSA Encryption Algorithm It's a very important invention that let's your computer. Set up a seeker connection On network so they are very big names. There's a big gap between having a lot of research credibility though actually deploying the system in the real world writing an APP writing out that works reliably and running the system. That does the records the ideas of people who have a negative. Excuse me running the system that records the ideas of the people who've tested positive. Checking it for security vulnerabilities. There's a lot of real world implementation details so these guys are really big names in the encryption world and they have a lot of credibility when it comes to things like security and privacy but they're still a long way to go between the initial idea and actually making something that works in the real world. Yeah I mean this is a problem that we're dealing with right now. Like what is for the time life or something like this because it is right now. It's a project. So it can get ruled out like are we actually can be used this in time to halt a spur of covenant or is this really for the next big pandemic. It's not clear at this stage. They don't have a release deadline they do have prototypes working on both android and us. They've actually had some trouble getting those two Getting smartphones from those two worlds to talk to each other but they do have prototypes working so they. They're not starting at zero right now but they don't have an APP released. They don't have a schedule. We've seen the new rates of couvert. Nineteen infections decreasing. So there's some evidence that the curve flattening is working. I still seems like there's going to be quite a while before. Were out of shelter at whom rules so there could be some window here for still for people to Get some use out of this APP and they're also could be. There's a lot of fear that there's going to be another flare up later after. Shelbert whom rules are eased. There's still a lot of risks that this could blow up again so potentially could be useful in detecting another outbreak. One of the really important things here to note though when it comes to the this time issue is how hard it's going to be to get this APP installed everywhere so it's going to be. We've seen cases where authorities recommend wearing masks or staying at home and then people voluntarily comply with that We haven't seen anybody recommend running a particular APP. Something like that could help encourage adoption or some direct support from apple in Google promoting this on their APP stores of their Kobe. Nineteen information pages. But without something like that. It's GonNa be really hard to get this APP into a lot of onto a lot of phones fast right. I think. That's that's my. That was my next question is really the scale ability issue like this only works if everyone download this. App EMBRACES THIS IDEA. But that's not the case right. Well you can look at it two different ways. It only works in a large scale way if a large number of people download the APP but even on a small scale could potentially inform some number of people that they are at some risk of infection. So if some small number people are alerted and get follow their symptoms more closely or potentially get treatment. It could help with that small number of people but for this to be really effective at the large scale it yeah has to be deployed widely. That's much more challenging. And is this the only game in town? I've seen pitches for a number of other APPs that that promise contact tracing that prompts the track things like what's the difference between those bitches and what you're talking about today. Yeah there are several efforts actually some of them have already come together. This one At Mit joined with some folks at Boston University. Who has very similar idea there other efforts? There's one in Europe. There's something called Kobe Watch. There are different efforts that use this basic approach than there also are other efforts that use other approaches and then there are other apps that do things like help you identify your check your symptoms and other apps that I've been used to see if people are generally obeying the shelter in place requirements or advice. Lots of different APPS. It's very confusing right now. I think one of the big challenges we're going to have is for people who want to help themselves or help the overall fight. It's going to be a kind of a mess to figure out what. Apps they're supposed to install what APPS are useful. What apps are potential privacy invasion and? I'm sure there can be a lot of cases. What APPS ARE SCAMS OR GARBAGE? Yeah that stuff is something that's GonNa Watch out for. Well that wraps things up you could check out Stephen Story on CNN DOT com.

"With the corona virus pandemic exploding around the world. Some countries have taken too aggressive. Contact TRACING. Identify how it's spreading. There may be a way to do this without invading your privacy. I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge. What Me Stephen. Shanklin were the biggest brains at CNN. And someone who can understand when folks from MIT get involved with this project to get everyone in the same footing talk a bit about contact tracing. What is it? This is a very old technique for dealing with epidemics or pandemics where you basically A healthcare professional interview. Somebody who has whatever disease finds out who they've been in contact with that. Lets them trace? What the origin of diseases and also potentially figure out where it's going next What which people that person has been in contact with? Who might have got afterwards? So it's a very old technique for tracking disease figuring out who needs to be quarantined or sequestered needs to shelter in place or be treated and the problem is it doesn't scale. It's something you need a medical professional to do. And if you're looking at something like cove in nineteen the disease caused by corona virus. It's really hard to talk to. Every person in the world I mean this is affected hundreds of thousands of people. So it's not very easy to do. Large-scale contact tracing definitely. It's actually hit over a million at this point so Talk about this product. This basically like everything else in the world recruiting for it and so talk a little bit about this Private automated contact tracing or packed yet packed. So this is a project done by a team of people in. It is spearheading the effort but involves a lot of other universities as well including Brown Boston University Carnegie Mellon and some other folks as well researchers at a lot of different institutions. The way it works is it uses. Your Phone's Bluetooth connection to broadcast digital. Id Number from your phone into listen to digital. Id numbers being broadcast from other people's phones. There's no handshaking or or any kind of actual acknowledgment but each phone keeps a record of the digital. Id's it's come in contact with and what happens next is if you are if you test positive. You can voluntarily load the list of ideas you've come in contact with and if you haven't tested positive you can go to a central server and download the list of ideas and see if there's a match with your phone and that lets you find out if you potentially have been exposed. Gotcha and so this is. This is actually really interesting because the use of this digital ID. That's sort of the key here for keeping private right because with contact. Tracing I mean requires a lot of information. You know. You're you're you're giving all your details as well as all folks you've been talking to this sort of solves that problem of kind of keeping things someone anonymous right. Yeah exactly so there. There are two interesting comparisons. Here's the first is to traditional contact. Tracing a lot of people when they enter the healthcare system they might be okay participating in that kind of assistant. But if you're not you might not want to actually share all that detail But the other comparison is other ways of doing this large scale contact tracing with an APP so one obvious way might think about doing it is sharing a GPS log a of recording of everywhere. You've been your phone can very easily keep now. That's relatively easily done but you might not want to do that. Might not want to share that with the authorities are all the world so what the interesting thing is about. Packed is it. Lets you find out who you've been? Excuse me it lets you find out that you have been in contact with somebody but it doesn't tell you where it happened or who it was with so this let's this contact tracing happen in the large scale way without actually sharing personal details. It stand. Tell me some of the some of the folks behind this because there are some pretty big names behind his project right. Yeah there are some very interesting names To the people are Ron revest and audience. Jamir Those are to the people involved in the RSA Encryption Algorithm It's a very important invention that let's your computer. Set up a seeker connection On network so they are very big names. There's a big gap between having a lot of research credibility though actually deploying the system in the real world writing an APP writing out that works reliably and running the system. That does the records the ideas of people who have a negative. Excuse me running the system that records the ideas of the people who've tested positive. Checking it for security vulnerabilities. There's a lot of real world implementation details so these guys are really big names in the encryption world and they have a lot of credibility when it comes to things like security and privacy but they're still a long way to go between the initial idea and actually making something that works in the real world. Yeah I mean this is a problem that we're dealing with right now. Like what is for the time life or something like this because it is right now. It's a project. So it can get ruled out like are we actually can be used this in time to halt a spur of covenant or is this really for the next big pandemic. It's not clear at this stage. They don't have a release deadline they do have prototypes working on both android and us. They've actually had some trouble getting those two Getting smartphones from those two worlds to talk to each other but they do have prototypes working so they. They're not starting at zero right now but they don't have an APP released. They don't have a schedule. We've seen the new rates of couvert. Nineteen infections decreasing. So there's some evidence that the curve flattening is working. I still seems like there's going to be quite a while before. Were out of shelter at whom rules so there could be some window here for still for people to Get some use out of this APP and they're also could be. There's a lot of fear that there's going to be another flare up later after. Shelbert whom rules are eased. There's still a lot of risks that this could blow up again so potentially could be useful in detecting another outbreak. One of the really important things here to note though when it comes to the this time issue is how hard it's going to be to get this APP installed everywhere so it's going to be. We've seen cases where authorities recommend wearing masks or staying at home and then people voluntarily comply with that We haven't seen anybody recommend running a particular APP. Something like that could help encourage adoption or some direct support from apple in Google promoting this on their APP stores of their Kobe. Nineteen information pages. But without something like that. It's GonNa be really hard to get this APP into a lot of onto a lot of phones fast right. I think. That's that's my. That was my next question is really the scale ability issue like this only works if everyone download this. App EMBRACES THIS IDEA. But that's not the case right. Well you can look at it two different ways. It only works in a large scale way if a large number of people download the APP but even on a small scale could potentially inform some number of people that they are at some risk of infection. So if some small number people are alerted and get follow their symptoms more closely or potentially get treatment. It could help with that small number of people but for this to be really effective at the large scale it yeah has to be deployed widely. That's much more challenging. And is this the only game in town? I've seen pitches for a number of other APPs that that promise contact tracing that prompts the track things like what's the difference between those bitches and what you're talking about today. Yeah there are several efforts actually some of them have already come together. This one At Mit joined with some folks at Boston University. Who has very similar idea there other efforts? There's one in Europe. There's something called Kobe Watch. There are different efforts that use this basic approach than there also are other efforts that use other approaches and then there are other apps that do things like help you identify your check your symptoms and other apps that I've been used to see if people are generally obeying the shelter in place requirements or advice. Lots of different APPS. It's very confusing right now. I think one of the big challenges we're going to have is for people who want to help themselves or help the overall fight. It's going to be a kind of a mess to figure out what. Apps they're supposed to install what APPS are useful. What apps are potential privacy invasion and? I'm sure there can be a lot of cases. What APPS ARE SCAMS OR GARBAGE? Yeah that stuff is something that's GonNa Watch out for.

"Was going to be a pain but still the best option. We've got right may not actually be the case. This is the daily chart. It's Monday march. Ninth and with me special guest. Stephen Shanklin Stephen. Pack is looking at the future of authentication. What did you find well? The bottom line is that password suck. We all know they stock but they don't just suck for us. They suck for the companies that were trying to log into banks facebook. Google whoever good news is there's actually a lot of work to fix passwords to improve the security that passwords us and to actually replace them altogether so basically. The computer industry is working. Its way out of this password. Hell we all live in well. So look passwords. Yes I find them annoying. But they're basically everywhere that ubiquitous. How do we get to a point where we can actually fully dump passwords? What are some of the technologies you encountered? Sure so there's a lot of work that is You know there are a lot of technologies that are available today like some single sign on things. You'll see logging with Google log in with apple log in with facebook so those are some early steps. The thing that's potentially more interesting is an alliance called FIDO. This is a whole lot of technology companies including Google and apple just joined them and they're working on technology. Improves Password log in and eventually potentially replaces password log in the way that works today? Most interestingly is with these little dangles called security keys and that really makes it much much harder for somebody to Breach your account even if they do have your password and those are the technologies that actually will let us replace our passwords completely later on. We talked a lot about these security keys. Talk about how they work and why there's so much more secure than just your simple password all right. Well here's the deal so this is a look at one of these security keys if you WANNA check it out. It's a little USB plugs into the side of your laptop or into the poor on your phone or it can connect wirelessly and it's something you have so when you look at the multi factor authentication. This is the idea that you're you're logging with something. You know a password with something. You are potentially biometrics like your face. Id or fingerprint ID and then with something you have like a security gate. So when you're combining the two of those three things you have pretty strong authentication these little security keys. This is what one looks like right here. These little security keys are they actually are instrumental in the log in process. They will check the website that you're using so that you can't log into fake websites with your real password and they really make it a lot harder for a hacker to get into your account. Now I've got so I've got a macbook air which annoyingly does not have any traditional USB type A ports for folks who are carrying around a physical thing to up your authentication your protection that that's kind of a tough sell like how do you. How do you sort of square that with the need for security? Well a couple points first of all that I just showed you as a key. That's the old style. Usb You can also get ones that plug into oray under this. One is lightning for your iphone though and then they also can connect wirelessly with NFC or Bluetooth so there are other ways that you can connect catching his. Keep your laptop or your phone but you're absolutely right. This is a hard sell. These things cost anywhere between twenty dollars seventy dollars for high end models that are fancier and you'll need at least two because you don't want to lose one or stolen and have your account access locked so yeah it's a hard sell for a lot of people but first of all think of it kind of like your house gate or your car key. People are sort of used to that. It's not that much of a stretch for people to thank. Oh here's this important thing that I carry with me all the time. So it's not a complete stretch to think that a lot of people might use this but the other big answer. Is that a newer standards from this. Fido alliance means you can actually use your phone instead of one of these hardware security Your actual phone register as one of these keys. Which means that. We don't have to carry anything extra that you're not already carrying with you is that. I know Google has already work to this. An android has apple which you just said recently joined Fido have they. Esl Does work with with the iphone as well. Well right now the apple situation's a little muddy. So we've if you're logging into a website on an iphone or an ipad then. This technology works fine as a just a few months ago. That's really very new but logging. The APP is still much better on android than it is. On Iowa's we don't have any official word from apple about when they might improve that access but my guess is it's on the way since they are pretty high ranking member of this fight alliance now so that's a pretty strong signal that they support this technology so right now it's a little bit better on android than it is on iphones but the trajectory looks good here. All right you wrote a second story companion. Piece about two factor authentication. This is the idea that you have to ways to verify your identity your good. That's nice cures. You might expect. I've been saying for years folks. Get to factor thank Asian. That's the way to go when it comes to protecting yourself but you know you're you're making me look dumb so I can you break it down. What why is it asa cure as one might expect? Okay so the first thing to say about two factor indication is. It's still way better than just a password. So it's still a big improvement. Advice is still pretty good. You're not looking dumb enough for this. Elliot's Yes but the problem is that it's still not perfect. So if you're using two factor authentication codes. There are two ways that usually works. The first is you're getting an SMS code that Your Bank or somebody sends to you a text message to your phone. And the second way is with an authenticated athletes. Google indicator those technologies. Can they help a lot? But the problem is that hacker can actually intercept those codes. So what happens is the hacker will give you a fake website. You'll enter username in there and then you'll get the authentication code you'll type the indication code into the fake website the hacker will then grab that authentication code and type it into the real website so basically it's called a man in the middle attacks. The hacker can intercept those codes and use those codes to log in. Another problem is felled. Sim swapping where somebody actually gets access to your mobile phone account and therefore can read your SMS messages. That's what happened to Jack. Dorsey the CEO of twitter. Basically these logging codes are big improvement. But they're still not as good as he's hardware securities for your important accounts especially all right. Well thank you Steven for spending time talking about passwords a feature passwords. We're back tomorrow with more if you have any more questions. When we're off Leila's voicemail Yes Boyce Mail at two eight six two two five zero five one seven three and if you WANNA learn more about.

These are the trackers advertises plant. So that when you shop for shoes one time you'll then see adverts let's for them for ever loss limits on the amount of data websites can collect other browsers have already made moves to cut tracking and preserve privacy but while Google does is significant. It can change the way the whole web works. Here's the deal with chrome. It is now about eleven years old almost and it's the most widely used browser on the web that Stephen Shanklin's senior editor seen who covers web browsers amongst other things and he says the way. Advertising is deployed online has evolved ads got a bit more in your face video sound animation. People started thinking about blocking ads. That was a few years ago now. What people are realizing is that ads are this vehicle for invading your privacy and the realization? We've had in the last few years. Is that browsers have a role to play in protecting your privacy. A lot of browser competitors take more assertive role in trying to protect your privacy. Google has been a laggard in this area. But it's now on the bandwagon as well. So what's going on here is. We're now moving from an assumption that a browser has much more active role to play protecting your privacy. So is this kind of a move from Google. Just trying to get ahead really of being accused of being evil. I guess yet so right. Now there's a lot of pressure on Google to be a much healthier part of the Internet and this is a key part of that I think. More than a billion people use chrome so when Google changes how it operates that has a very broad effect on a lot of people not just consumers but the developers who create websites. This definitely could help improve the reputation. Asian of Google online and pressure coming from us from consumers or is google sort of anticipating pressure from regulators and others. It's coming from many directions. It's coming from consumers. Increasingly there was a Cambridge Analytica scandal at facebook that really helped elevate awareness for people about just how little privacy we have online. That's that's had a lot of ripple effects one of them is with regulators who are now pushing to protect privacy more the European regulators have been much more aggressive there than the US but we see the action here in the US as well in particular with California so there's sort of a general shift in general consumer attitudes but also in regulatory attitudes but also in the expectations that a lot of technology companies have about how they should be operating so you can be cynical and say that this is just to avoid bad pr are. But I think there's some earnestness here on the part of technology companies that they do to some degree. Want to do the right thing. The cynic in me wonders how effective a move like this will really be. Don't advertisers and others just find different ways of tracking us and monitoring US yes definitely. There's a particular technology called fingerprinting reprinting which relies on measuring bits of information that your browser releases. If you have enough of those little bits of information you can actually profile people without using in cookies or other techniques and fingerprinting is increasingly important as cookies. Get blocked however there also also are pretty serious efforts among the browser companies to stop fingerprinting or to make it harder to make it less effective. Google is also pursuing those efforts. Virtually every browser browser maker is right now. There's a little identifying piece of text that a browser releases called the user agent string and it's very very important. It's probably the single most important piece of data for fingerprinting efforts and Google. This year is going to be freezing. Essentially becomes a useless piece of information for fingerprinting reprinting other browser makers plan to do that but basically fingerprinting is going to get harder but in the big picture. It's a cat and mouse game. There are advertising companies are data brokers. There are publishers who want to track their users and as one avenue get shut down they start pursuing other avenues. So is Google proposing some sort of alternative presumably. Advertisers will still argue that. It's important to be able to track US in some way. Yeah Google has a variety of proposals and one of the interesting things about its proposals for privacy. Is there being more accommodating to publishers into advertisers. Tasers however there are a lot of changes coming to how much that tracking happen so Google Proposals and some of the actions by other browser makers definitely make it harder to track you. But they're also trying to accommodate advertisers to some degree so for example one of the important parts of advertising is something called attribution which is knowing when an ad has been effective if somebody clicked on it for example and Google and apple and some of the other browser makers are working on ways that things like like this can still be measured but in a way that doesn't infringe privacy so we've seen a general shift a lot of technology companies to recognizing private privacy's important. You've seen it from Google using it from apple from facebook but what we're having what we haven't seen right now is that sort of same acknowledgement on the part of the advertising industry. It's it's quite possible though that as the pressure mounts that they will also come to the realization that they need to find a way to make their business work without building immensely detailed profiles on everybody on the Internet. Stephen Shankland seen it. He warns that advertisers. Don't just use cookies to track us. They can also use fingerprinting which builds an eerily accurate profile from things like what operating system. You're using what connection type you have. Google says it is working to cut down on that too.

"One thousand thousand nine hundred and eighty american dollars price point it previously announced preregister ring does not require any money at the same time bloomberg reports that it it has sources that say samsung has a different foldable phone in the works for next year. The samsung galaxy fold is a seven point three inch tablet that folds into a phone form factor but the new foldable that bloomberg is has is in the works would be a six point seven inch phone the form factor at woodfold into a square like a flip phone. It's supposedly uses bendable glass where the gutsy fold uses bendable aplastic bloomberg bloomberg sources say samsung has entered a partnership with thorn brown on the looks and lenovo is working on what sounds sounds like it might be a similar foldable razor so we are going to get foldable more foldable phones. Although it'll be interesting to see if the galaxy fold a gets anybody buddy to buy it be if it passes through views and see if it doesn't do that well whether samsung continues to push a foldable phone does to be honest the six point seven inch phone phone the folds up and is pretty thin which is what bloomberg is saying sounds like a more reasonable option for people especially if it's not a thousand nine hundred eighty bucks dogs the problems with my <hes> my my iphone plus max pro. Whatever it's going to be called <hes> is that it. I like the screen size but there are like tiny little purses or just little pockets that doesn't fit into so if if i had an option to this is the exact same device but in transit is smaller or perhaps the rear facing cameras now on the front given whatever situation i might be in. That's really cool. Yeah yeah i think the current generation of foldable phones of which there are a few whether or not they do well doesn't really mean much for the future foldable z- <hes> the next extenuation or maybe even the one after that might be the one that decides it now. It's really just beta not even it's like pre alpha production <hes> devices yeah. I think it's unlikely that that some kind of new form factor like what the samsung galaxy fold is attempting to do or the mate foldable made is attempting to do really ends up taking off but just more practical things like flip phones. We we know flip phones. Were a usable form factor for a long time so if you can have a touchscreen and flip phone yeah maybe maybe i could see that working better seeing that's stephen shanklin reports on the state of development of wi fi six and eventually wifi seven expected to arrive in twenty twenty twenty four at qualcomm wifi day back in august v._p.

"Today on the daily charge i instagram now facebook may start hiding likes wifi seven already on the developing table and dove tailing off the best labor day tech deals the cheapskate rick reuter is here to break down what still good morning and welcome to seen daily really tired. It's tuesday september third. I'm joanie saltzman alfred. Let's get to the headlines here in the u._s. Were coming back from a labor day holiday holiday weekend which like most holidays here means shopping but there are still deals out there for you to grab rick bre has been spearheading cenex coverage of tech deals for years and he's he's joining us now remotely wreck. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks for having me guys. So what are some of the best deals still out there for people right now right so as you mentioned the labor day holiday was a great excuse for everybody to have deals because it's american but we do and although a lot of the deals are wrapping up because it's the day after labor day there are few that are still holding on <hes> for example h having a really nice salem one of their <hes> more entry level the laptops. It's like a fifteen inch but actually has a decent processor and it has a two hundred fifty six gigabyte solid state drive and it starts at just like five hundred nineteen bucks ax which is a really good price for that. I recommend anybody who's getting that. Go into the custom convict tool and bump up the screen resolution two full h._d. That's an extra fifty bucks six the <hes>. I have it right here in front of me. I don't forget another novo. Start clock is down to sixty bucks and this is a really nice item for a college student or anybody. He also wants to be able to wake up with with videos or see a live weather reports stuff like that <hes> the air pods deal with the wireless charging case that was was like one of the all time best deals on that is now expired but you know <hes> black friday is coming so deals like that. We'll be back right. Well something. I've always wanted to ask you and so. I'm glad i got to do this. Live in front of an audience is how do you keep on top of identifying these deals all year round. I can't even imagine and like what you cannot ask magician to reveal. I don't care if we're live. We're not no seriously though i i have a number of different ways that i track these deals. A lot of times vendors will reach out to me and say hey we wanna do an exclusive thing for for cheapskate reader's go out different deals sites <hes> like anybody and then of course i have my spies here and there who bring me the good stuff <hes> the one thing i'll mention though is that for anybody who wants to on attract deals on their own if they're hoping to score a deal on something and they wanna find out when it goes on sale. There's a couple of tools that they can use the help them do this. One is it's called camel camel camel and the other is called honey and both of these let you set up water called <hes> basically price alerts so you let them you specify what price ice what threshold you're hoping to get and it will send you an email alert as soon as that particular product gets to that price.

"Two fifty nine. I'm Joanie Solomon cats Meyer joining us too. So cast mar- you our television guru, and you recently updated your advice about cutting the cord, it's never been more viable to cut the cord. But that doesn't mean that it's easy or simple. What would you what's kind of the most important thing that you think people should consider when thinking about getting out of a regular pay TV subscription? I mean, that's the real thing. So you'd never had cable than this easy. You know, you know, what you're getting. But if you're one of these people that decided, hey, I've had cable for a long time. I got a DVR I'm used to these kinds of things when you go to get rid of it, you're going to be losing some stuff. So the main thing to consider is the money, you're gonna save if you have just internet versus your bundle versus your packaging. I always tell people trying to go she ate with your cable company. Call them up or if there's a couple of neighborhood, if you're lucky enough to have some competition com up and be like, hey, dude. I'm quitting cable, can you cut me deal basis? So the best way and that sense to cut the cord to not cut the cord. Well, that let's say they can't match your price. Because things consider then then you go, okay. Fine time to cut the cord, then you can consider one of these live TV streaming services or you can put up an antenna. Those are the two best ways to get sort of the replacement for cable the other thing is if you're a sports lover make sure that you know, this particular team that you follow is going to be available. That's really the main thing that keeps a lot of people on cable is these regional sports networks where the only way to get it. If you have your cable subscription, but a lot of new life teen streaming services like fubo TV like YouTube TV actually do have RSN's now. So they actually allow you to go and do that. It's really cool. What about s- beyond life TV stuff that you'll be losing? What about on demand? Things. Do you think that there's ways that people can cobble together a package that works for them? Yes. I feel like, you know, who is your friend. If you really like a lot of on-demand, Hulu, which just the basic service has a tremendous amount of stuff available on demand. Really? If you're watching on demand cable is the worst way to do. I mean between Netflix Hulu, and even you know, the network apps, if you wanna go that deep available on any of these devices, you can get a lot of stuff available immediately stream, and you don't have to worry about cable subscription to do. What about s- people part of the problem with cutting the court is that it's so hard to figure out what it is how you can get those things that you want because everybody is an individual now have different tastes and priorities. What do you for people who may not know about things that are available? Are there is there anything out there that people might not be aware that they could try easiest thing is to just sit down and write down your list of must have shows, and it's a lot harder. If you have a family, you know, everybody has to be considered and figure out which shows you can live with which was without which works there on its takes a little bit of work. But then once you have that list, the internet is your friend. And for example, we have a whole list of for example, all the various channels carried on each of these TV services, whether they're actually available in your area, for example, ABC NBC. CBS and FOX are only available in most of these metropolitan areas, if you live a little bit further away from the city, you might be able to get them. So those sorts of things you're going to have to figure out on your own or again, if you wanna put up an antenna, that's a whole other thing. That's a great way to save a lot of money on your cable refuse to put up in Tennessee. What you get because they're cheap. You can connect it to your TV right now and just kind of experimenting so moving on do you remember that merit hotel chain cyberattack from a few weeks ago? All turns out that it may have been bigger and more insidious than we thought there's a report in about an investigation into that attack that appears to indicate it's part of a wider Chinese spying effort. David have all these cyber attacks. Have they changed at all? How you consider your own digital profiles exposure, I'll tell you one thing I do have a monitoring service, and I get a lot more emails about this. So actually got the little alert about Marriott. And that bothers me. But it's one of these things where it's just around all the time. And it kind of doesn't surprise me that oh China's behind this or North Korea's behind that or whatever. Like, it's it's become weaponized. And you know, it's a little bit scary. But I feel like is long as you're smart, you use a password protection service, for example, last pass us one of these things you're taking steps in the right direction. I think credit monitoring is also really good thing, especially if you have some credit protect then quickly. There's also a story out from our Stephen Shanklin. It's about Intel with a new type of breakthrough three D chip stacking called over us. The idea is that it'll bring kind of processing that previously is used for artificial intelligence and machine learning, but has been really expensive make it much more. And that means there might be a reason for you to upgrade your PC in the next couple years can check out that story and all the rest at com. Joni Saltzman, I'm doing cats Meyer. Thanks for listening.

"Roger Chang. I'm Ben FOX, urban, making nine one one call and your phone. Apple automatically share your location with the merchants responders. This is a case where you don't actually mind that apple is sharing your formation. Also throwing bones with authorities after the company last week said that the close loophole that allowed law enforcement to hack into your iphone. So it's apple. You take it away. I think that's your opinion that you wouldn't mind having the location shared, especially with everything that's been going on this year with Cambridge -lica- and Facebook. I feel like people would even look at something like this skeptically, where even if you're in an emergency, how would this be used against me? How could this be hacked? What's apple doing with this information? And I think apple tends to have a better reputation comes to security and privacy, and even that kind of shows what two thousand eighteen is turned into as far as like being really attentive to privacy from a consumer perspective to fair. Apple has been doing this since two thousand fifteen in some format. What they're doing with this update is really bringing across the board and adding a new technology that allows for the iphone to securely share location data. So apples in Apple's defense, it seems like they're working to well share your formation. Doing away that secure? Yeah. And as far as like sharing your private information of your location, this to me seems like a much more useful leg ominous. Emergency and emergency responders need to know where I am that's much more relevant in my mind to. I don't know what foursquare would do or swarm or whatever those things are. Whereas just sharing your location for the hell. The next up Jay pag turns twenty five this year. Oh my God, happy birthday. J. j. for foyer present, you will likely get pushed off as a successor comes into take your place. There are number of different formats. Stephen Shanklin profile j. pick x. l. this is a format that is to be. Fifty, six percent more efficient, basically file size by sixty percent sixty percent, which means that it will improve your cloud storage. You'll have more data space on your phone. I didn't think I cared about j. pags until I read Stephen stories, so you should check it out. Oh, look, everyone who Rosen situation where their phone runs out of space because they've got all these photos jammed them as gonna wanna relate to this basically doubles the capacity of your phone, four. The same quality of photos right now. It's not all just pure benefit. Fortunately, there's gonna be a lot of confusion. I think apple, Google, Microsoft bunch of other companies are working on rival standards beyond Jay peg, excel. There's there's one. There's a off shoot of the high format that Apple's order put into their iphones. There's another one by Mozilla, there's there's just there tons of different ones that really can cause some confusion if if folks don't actually support all these different format. Yeah, and it's a good point that j pags do. Do need an overhaul, the twenty five years old. I mean, what store to other than the headphone, Jack, what sort of technology ends up living that long. But at the same time, I think consumers really hate standards wars. Oh, yeah. All right. Last week's merger of eighteen tee Time Warner have n-nor. Charlie proponents freaking out of came days after the net neutrality rules came off the books. So a lot of folks are lot are concerned about what a company with combined power can do a little. Let's talk about zero rating gap. Tell me tell me a little bit about that at with the time we have already as a practice of offering you a service without it eating your data plan. And so that sounds great unserviced. But if you're a company like AT, you've got direct TV now and you push that as a data free product, it's doesn't hurt your data plan at all. You're more likely to use that and say Netflix or YouTube, which does eat into your data account. So the concern there is that AT and unfair competition or unfair advantage or so, there's other services and in particular. Smaller no-name services that are just getting started? Right. So again, this idea, everything has to be treated equally, and in this case, AT isn't. And so interesting to note the SEC under the Obama administration actually looked at this practice and really raised some flags about it. But once the the new FCC administration under Trump came in with occupy as chairman, they did away with that investigation. Thank you for that info. All right stories. Roger Chan Ben FOX than listening.

They created this way for you to actually send money to your friends and families, peer to peer payments using Alexis. So it's not as simple as saying, Alexis and mom fifty dollars, but there is a chance that eventually could get that easy. And how does this work?

It is katie's talked to the sort of the graphene something experts at mobile congress to ago.
