US tech giants accused of 'monopoly power'

"Giant companies were grilled before a congressional hearing. Twitter's Jack Dorsey, Google, Sundar Pichai and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg took questions on how to best police the Internet. The central question dealt with federal law, known as section 2, 30, protect social media companies from liability for their users post Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, appearing virtually urged against any drastic changes section 2 30 helped create the Internet. As we know it has helped new ideas get built and our company's to spread American values around the world, and we should maintain this advantage. But the Internet has also evolved, and I think that Congress should update the law to make sure that it's working. As intended. Dorsey, along with Zuckerberg and pitch, I were pressed to the to the company's policies for content, moderation. And, of course, the three CEOs were accused by some senators of abusing their power over political speech six days before the presidential election. One more heated exchanges came between Dorsey and Senator Ted Cruz. So you're testifying to this committee right now that Twitter when its silences people when its sensors people wanted blocks political speech that has no impact on elections, people people have choice of other communication channels. Not if they don't hear information. If you don't think you have the power to influence elections, why do you block anything? Well, we have policies that are focused on making sure that more voices from possible we see a lot of abuse and harassment, which ends up silencing people in something on leave from the front. Well at on this question. I just mentioned of content moderation. All three of the CEOs were pressed, especially by Republicans, accusing them of having an anti conservative bias.

The Case Against Google

Weekend Edition Saturday

The Case Against Google

"We're going to zoom in now on a detail in the lawsuit the Justice Department filed against Google this week. It alleges that Google paid Apple As much as $12 billion to be the default search engine for iPhones. Prosecutors say this proves that Google abused monopoly power to try to keep rivals down. We should mention Apple and Google are both financial supporters of NPR. NPR's Bobby Allen covers tech and joins us now, Bobby. Thanks so much for being with us, you gotta Scott. And what does the government contend the that this payment is evidence Google abuse power. To the heart of the government's case against Google is that it's grown so large it functions like a monopoly like an oil baron, or like a steel magnet. But instead of being an industrialist's, it has huge power over the Internet, which on its face is not illegal, but When a company gains this much power and throws its weight around to make sure nobody else can compete. That's when there are real legal questions, and the Justice Department says That's how Google behaves. One really vivid example of this, at least allegedly, is this $12 billion payment. Google paid that Apple to make sure Google would be the predetermined search engine on every single Apple device. Practical effect. A cz you notice every time somebody buys an iPhone or an iPad and they search for something on the Internet. It's a Google search. Some people might consider that good. Why is it a problem in short? Because if you're a search competitors say, being or duck duck, go or you pick one. You don't get any attention. I mean, how often Scott, are you googling things on your phone, right? I mean, we say right, exactly. So their dominance is baked into the verb. So and the Justice Department points this out and Inside Google Becoming the default search engine was a huge priority. The Justice Department says. Google insiders called the prospect of not getting the deal code red. Google CEO Sundar Finch. I met one on one with Apple's Tim Cook to hammer out the terms of the deal behind closed doors and, according to the court papers, and unidentified senior employees from Google wrote to an Apple counterpart. Quote Our vision is to work as if we are one company. And so I called up former Justice Department antitrust lawyer John Newman and asked Is this collusion? Don't say it's somewhere in the middle. It's not classic collusion, so it's not like to oil companies conspiring to raise the price of oil, for instance, it looks more like One monopolists, agreeing with another company to split the monopoly rent. So we have Google, Annapolis or technically, competitors working together to make each other stronger. What did the company say about it? Cos say, there's nothing stranger illegal about it that companies make deals all the time to get the best distribution for their products on DH. Apple just decided that Google simply was the best partner to work with. On Google says Look, people like Google, right. Its dominance and strength is the result of just how great it ISS On DH, former Justice Department lawyer Newman says. Yeah, you could be the best. But that is not an argument to not give others a fair shot. If it is true that Google will win out on a competitive playing field, and it may be Even in a competitive market. A lot of people would like to use Google. But even if that's true, that's not a reason to leave the competitive Plainfield uneven.

House Antitrust Subcommittee Takes Testimony From Big Tech CEOs

"As low as four dollars. Ninety nine cents a month stay tuned after the show to learn about their special offer just for talking tech listeners. So when you're asked to meet with elected officials via teleconference in Washington. DC along with your key competitors and you don't get too many questions. It's a given that you had a really really good week. And when you followed up the next day with a stunning earnings release that had one analysts say that his jaw dropped when he read the numbers while there's no question that apple CEO Tim, Cook clearly had the best week in Tech. His compatriots among the big tech CEOS like facebook's mark. Zuckerberg Google's Sundar Pichai, and Amazon's Jeff Bezos did not fare as well in DC. Now, in case you missed it. Let's breakdown for you what happened this week and begin by setting the scene facebook Google apple and Amazon CEOS recall to Capitol Hill for the first time in unison to defend themselves. Against antitrust charges and they followed it up the next day with earnings reports all on the same day or a mind boggling two hundred billion dollars combined worth of revenues in just one quarter. That's a little less than half of what America's largest company Walmart brought in for all of two thousand nineteen for the record that was five, hundred, twenty, four, billion. Now during a pandemic, when many people are forced to work or learn from home consumers responded by buying lots of new computers, ipads, and iphones from apple and a whole lot of everything from Amazon at a time when many retail stores were closed in this testimony to Congress bezos described it as like Christmas in March for the company which struggle to keep up with demand meanwhile. Google. Reported a two percent drop in revenues incidents. Advertising business was impacted too fragile economy. While facebook, which is also primarily in advertising business reported higher revenues but. With a lower increase than usual, which brings us back to cook. When you're asked to appear before Congress and defend your company, you're a loser when you walk into that environment says Jean Monster in investor analyst with Luke ventures a good day he adds is escaping from major blows like Tim Cook did cook was asked about how apple treats APP developers in place favorites at its APP store where the company clearly controls what consumers can see with ironclad enforcement. Apple gets to decide who can participate and can band people at will as it did recently with the alternative email service hey, which was initially rejected by apple cooks defense. It's all in keeping up with the quality of the store in that putting APPs in front of iphone users that invade their privacy and the like. But in the realm of antitrust government decreed that apple ditch the APP store, it's a tiny portion of its business worth less than five. And wouldn't impact apple says monster. What could happen to the other companies if they had to divest will you can see facebook ditching instagram and WHATSAPP apple ditching aws, which is its web services it was basically the backbone of many companies. It provides Internet services for many companies like Netflix men for Google maybe say goodbye YouTube. Google calendar.

"Apple. Mark facebook. Billionaire bezos. and Sunday Google. This is the Tim Mark Jeff and center show. Here's your host. Sean Rama's firm. Casey Newton, you read about tech in democracy for the verge big. A deal were Wednesdays, hearings nothing quite like this had ever happened before at the very least. Yeah. With the exception of the Microsoft antitrust case in the late nineties, we really haven't seen meaningful antitrust relation in this country for fifty years. Thirteen months ago the House Judiciary Committee and its antitrust subcommittee undertook an investigation into the market power of Apple Amazon facebook and Google and in the months since they have held five preliminary hearings, they've produced one point, three million documents and Wednesday. We had the culmination of that this hearing where you had the CEO's of the big tech companies facing real questions about how their companies have dominated the markets they're in for people who couldn't watch what did the main event look like because none of these dudes actually showed up Well, as you know Sean we have global pandemic that's happening right now. and. So rather than risk at all to appear before the antitrust subcommittee, the CEO's dialed in on Cisco Webex and appeared before and in-person hearing of many members of the antitrust subcommittee. It was kind of a hybrid some of the members of Congress were at their homes or offices, and some were actually there in DC in the committee room and then Everyone appeared on a giant grid in the manner of so many of our conversations, these days, and of course Jeff, bezos appeared to have the nicest rube. 'CAUSE has the most money by and that is how that were. You make the most money you have the nicest room Nass just basic science. So I didn't get to watch all of it but I get to watch some of it including the opening statements in it in which each one of the Tech Lords laid out there. Inspiring. Billionaire business stories with these gentle sort of preemptive suggestions that nothing about apple facebook Google or Amazon was anti competitive felt like foreshadowing. Yeah. I nobody loves America like a billionaire things are going very well for them. And they believe very firmly that they have acted within all of the relevant rules and laws, and that nothing ought to change. We also know that customers have a lot of choices in our products faced fierce competition. Many of our competitors have hundreds of millions or billions of users. Some are upstarts, but others are gatekeepers with the power to decide if we can even. RELEASE OUR APPS IN THEIR APP stores to compete with them. Research founded fee services like search g mail maps and photos provide thousands of dollars a year in value to the average American and many small businesses using our digital tools to grow Amazon accounts for less than one percent of the twenty five trillion, our global retail market and less than four percent of US retail. And of course, immediately thereafter that sort of. Utopia they painted was pierced by the representatives on the committee. Whiplash watching it because it would go from like Google, in the military to like facebook and free speech to like iphone. So why don't we just help the people at home and go company by company starting with apple because Tim Cook seem to sort of have an easy go. The thing that is happening with apple is that it runs one of the two dominant mobile phone operating systems and it also operates an APP store that is necessary to use any apps on that phone and. For many of the APPS that run on that phone, apple charges a thirty percent cut of revenue, and that is true even in cases where it makes a competing APP that does not have to pay that cut. So for example, apple makes a music product charges, ten bucks a month and spotify mixing music product the cost ten bucks a month spotify pay three of those dollars to apple and so many companies have come forward to say that this is hurting competition because they are unable to. Invest the same amount that apple is and they're not able to compete. And how Tim Cook Respond to that that allegation that that the APP store is inherently anti-competitive Tim Cook says that eighty four percent of the APP. Nothing the remaining sixteen percent either pay fifteen thirty depending upon the specifics and hey, if you don't like it, go another operating system on another phone people have like a fifty fifty option there it's apple or Google. Did Tim Cook get off easy in the whole thing I think Tim Cook got off easy. He got the fewest questions of anyone up there. Something like thirty five questions compared to something like sixty for Zuckerberg. So it seemed like members we're not as interested in scrutinizing apple as they were the other giants. And everyone loves to scrutinize facebook including you. Of course, the questions to mark Zuckerberg felt sort of. Like old hat did they feel new an interesting to you? You're right and that Congress was really looking backward when it came to facebook whereas the antitrust questions facing the other companies feel much more current and future with facebook. The question was this is Okay Berg you have written that facebook in likely always just by any competitive starbucks. In fact, on the day facebook Instagram, would you describe as a threat? You wrote quote one thing about startups you can open. Quote, and so they presented a bunch of new documents which we reported on the verge that showed conversation in which soccer Burg says that it is a competitor and he would like to neutralize that threat. Now Soccer Berchtold Congress look I've been clear that instagram was a competitor in the space of mobile photo sharing, but we never could have imagined it was going to grow as big as it eventually did, and in fact is facebook says by having them join us they certainly went from being a competitor in the space of of being a mobile camera. To, an APP that we could help, grow and help get more people to be able to use. Yeah. I saw that moment and I kind of scratched my head because I felt like instagram was pretty huge before facebook acquired it. It was certainly growing by the time the ink dried on the contracts. And now today it has over a billion users. So certainly, facebook had the data that showed that it was growing incredibly quickly and not growth has done nothing but continue percents. Google had a much tougher. Go it seemed there were a lot of representatives taking a lot of Google's decisions recently apart yet google faces the most imminent risk of real antitrust action. There has been some reporting that an antitrust case may be brought against them by the federal government. This summer and a lot of it has to do with search results. When you Google something in many cases, you will not see what you used to see on Google which was links to websites. Instead Google will try to answer your question for you and often it will answer with another Google Product Search for a location on Earth Google. We'll show you google travel products and that has made it harder to compete for other travel based businesses. Right or if you think about local reviews, yelp built a whole business on on reviewing local businesses and it used to rank really highly google search and then Google started to build in reviews of local businesses. Now, yelp reviews can be harder to find. So it's those kinds of things that have gotten regulators attention and it seems like that has been persuasive to at least some of those regulators. So did Sundar Pichai do a good job of convincing the antitrust committee that Google is doing its best to foster competition or? You know is the federal government. Sure to take.

Washington vs. Big Tech: Taking on the Trillion-Dollar Club

"Lawmakers came out swinging yesterday against Amazon Apple, Alphabet and facebook at an historic antitrust hearing held with CEOS, Jeff bezos, Tim Cook Sundar Pichai, and Mark Zuckerberg. Over remote Webcam, you swear or affirm under penalty of perjury that the testimony you out to give his show incorrect. The Best of your knowledge information and belief. So help you God. Yes. Let the record, show the witnesses answered informative. Thank you, and you may remain seated members of the House Judiciary Committee's antitrust subcommittee used charged language like too much power, Anti Competitive Acquisition and emperors as they aired their concerns about those four giant platforms. Here's the subcommittee chairman. Democrat, Peterson, Selene, a Rhode Island, our founders would not bow before king, nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and ranking member? Wisconsin's Jensen. Brenner. Pointing out. Political concerns about size does big tech have a bias serves our consumers to? The need the protection of the antitrust laws. Both sides of the aisle had their opportunity to highlight this core conflict between Washington and Silicon Valley that antitrust enforcement can fix whatever is challenging or concerning about big tech. The CEO's for their part. Say We haven't squashed the competition. Here's Pichai Cook and Zuckerberg competition drives US team. needs to better products, Noah choices and more choices for every customers have a lot of choices in their products space fierce competition companies like Samsung, G. while way in Google has built successful businesses with different approaches. We okay with that. Our goal is the best, not the most I recognize that there are concerns about the size and power of tech companies. Now, we're services are about connection. Our business model is advertising and we face intense competition in both Amazon's ECOMMERCE dominance sparked a few intense moments after CEO Jeff bezos. The richest man in the world with a personal fortune of about one hundred and eighty billion dollars didn't get a question until nearly two hours into the hearing apparently due to a tech glitch. But then the pressure was on basis was asked about undercutting diapers, dot com before buying it Amazon's counterfeit problem whether Alexa favors Amazon's own products, many times. He didn't have the answer I. Don't remember that at all. I remember is that we we we'd match competitive. I believe we follow diapers cog, and this is eleven years ago I. Think we do is offer to get you information if you. Get it to your office for you read that article, but I didn't remember that piece of that I apologize for that I don't know the specifics of that situation, and I would be happy to give back to your office with more information about that. These questions for Basil's and Amazon strike at the heart of the antitrust that had been building for years as these four companies that we use every day every single day grow and grow larger with a combined market. Market cap of about five trillion dollars. If they were their own stock exchange, they'd be the fourth largest in the world. Here's vice chair. Joanna goose to facebook's mark. Zuckerberg strikes me over the course of the last several years. FACEBOOK has used. It's market power to either purchase or replicate the competition and facebook facebook. MESSENGER WHATSAPP instagram are the most now downloaded APPs of the last decade your company. Sir, owns them all and we have a word for that words monopoly. My Take Away I. Don't know I. Don't know if you guys watched I thought some of it was fascinating. A couple of questions, not not a lot of great questions thought. There's a lot of some good answers, some not good answers, but I didn't think that there was a major takeaway that all of a sudden. You know Washington was Gonna come down hard on these companies and there was evidence that was presented. That was gonna GonNa, create that challenge. I thought the most challenging piece of of news out there. But I think we've seen it before was instagram and facebook in some of the emails back and forth. Did you ever use this very similar facebook camera product to threaten instagram's founder Kevin side-stream? Congresswoman I'm I'm not sure what you mean by threatened I. Think it was public that we were building a camera up at the at the time in a chat. You told, MR, science that facebook was quote developing our own photos strategy. So how we engage now, we'll also determine how much were partners versus competitors down the line instagram's founders seem to think that was a threat he confided confided in an investor at the time that he feared you would go. That you would go into quote destroy mode if he didn't sell instagram to you, one of respectfully disagree with the characterization. Really dug into the emails and didn't take them out of context I. Thought, you'd have a hard case to make. Yeah, I, mean. I thought on on the point with facebook is easy Riley points to the quite a few different lawmakers went off the Mark Zuckerberg on on the topic of their competition practices whether he considered some of those companies they've taken over I, walk up and Instagram as competitors at that point which knowledge that they had been, which kind of course, a bit of a stir. Has Been Engaged in purchasing competition I, in some cases, replicating competition in some cases eliminating your competition, would that be a fair statement? The space of people connecting with other people is a very large space and I would agree that there were different approaches we took to to addressing different parts of of that space, but it's all in service of building the best services. Likewise said that they had tried to copy some of the particular tools that other rivals whether they bought them or not use including. Of course, the stories feature snap, which I thought was quite interesting, but Geo Point, Andrew as to whether we we conclude from yesterday that significant action from no makers is imminent. Even if we go to a sweep at the next election, the market didn't take that conclusion on those times. Talks hit session highs during the hearing, but the interesting dichotomy which goes to the question. Of, how much we managed to watch I watched as much as I could apart from when fed chair Jay Powell speaking and I watch that instead, and you had one side of Washington of goes up pressuring these tech stocks. The other part saying that we're hit as long as it takes, we're not even thinking about thinking about thinking about raising rates and not allowed old. Not just the textbooks. And close at a pretty strong session yesterday can I? Can I just ask whoever buys a company? That's not a competitor I mean. News the idea that you would buy a competitor when. Merger has ever taken place among a company that does an entirely different area that you wouldn't consider a competitor. Watching. This yesterday was complete theater just like it often is with the these congressional hearings. At. The beginning, they were asking questions and not even letting them answer. So this was really about giving Congress people their time to have their six minutes to talk and to go through with some of these things, I didn't feel like learned a lot under yesterday. I couldn't take my eyes off it when I was watching it, but it was theater. Classic, you'll take the time comments from lawmakers when they get me on. So they wanted to I, totally agree on that, but I would say compared to say twenty eighteen when Mark Zuckerberg had to go to face, they'll make on his own. Better prepared than they had even if it was then making arguments rather than letting. The answer, their questions, they made better arguments. They brought up more pertinent facts whether that was is Amazon. Abusing small sellers on this. Platform. In two, thousand, thirteen, it was reported that you instructed Amazon employees to approach discussions with certain business partners, and I quote the way a Cheetah would pursue a sickly gazelle is the gazelle projects still in place and as Amazon pursue similar predatory campaigns in other parts of its business. I cannot. comment on that because I don't remember it. Is. Apple misusing the margins, it takes on on the APP store. Apple from increasing its commission to fifty percents we serve. We have never increase commissions in the store since the first day at operated in two thousand eight. From doing so is it? No, Sir I disagree strongly with that, there is a competition for developers just like there's a competition for customers. So I think they were getting it the crux of some of the issues. But as we I think all concluding I, it didn't spell imminent danger for the tech stocks just because of that air. Just one note though on the competitor. Comment there or issue that you were just discussing Becky, which is an interesting one. We often talk on the show about how being a monopoly unto. itself is not illegal, and you just commented that you can't buy from everybody wants to buy competitor. Interestingly, if you're deemed a monopoly which is not illegal, but you have that market power, it actually is illegal to buy a competitor, and so if you really go back and read mark, Brooks emails even. Even about the instagram transaction, he actually even doubled back on one of his emails because I. Think he realized that given the power that having that industry depending on how you define it that he had to rewrite the email later to suggest no, I'm not trying to do this. He was by the way thinking about this, even to two, thousand, ten, you can. Almost, if you look through emails, you can sort of see how tracking in his mind. The Way He's thinking about it. So yes, everybody always wants to buy. But Inter stands at the size and scale that these companies are. Now, it's very hard to do that actually. Hit His. Answer. was that the FTC had all the same information that they had at that point in the FTC Peruta

"Is not dangerous just that Sundar symbolizes the earth plane so sort of like you're a salmon swimming upstream if you do that one way to compliment over any energy waves might affect you too yeah it just keeps you want it keeps you limited to the earth plane ticket it's just very difficult to do it if you're not experience if you experience on a problem but I'm talking about a new piece here you want to wear very loose clothing or nothing at all you want to make your initial times in complete darkness over in very dim light you don't want bright lights all of you here you want to make sure the dead silence don't play rock music while you're doing this okay did sign practice alone this is not a group activity I'm just trials late at night right before normally go to bed is not a bad idea actually and you wanna lie on your right side for best results never lie on your left side okay so this is an interesting goes back to the objections of the mystery schools the left considered was considered to be evil the right was always considered to be good for some reason when people lie on the left side is the research on this it just blocked the experience so the goal line decide why on your right side don't tempt fate okay that was far is you may experience a paralysis of associated with them sleep that's normal there's nothing wrong with paralysis you can increase that by using the psyche protection from negativity CD that's on my spiritual growth experience technical also might after voiding program also deals with everybody experiences in great detail now there are certain food aspects or certain other things you will want to cut down on food intake prior to your out of body experience tips do not eat anything just prior to the actual exercise eat mainly fruits and vegetables avoid red meat juices digestion is going to take a drug that's wonderful for you want to refrain from eating nuts of any kind especially peanuts you don't want biological functions to interfere with your experiences okay carrots raw eggs in liquids of all types eight actually an out of body experiences you want and that this is a big enough for your audience because I get this all the time please listen here at saying from all alcohol tobacco or any recreational drugs unless you want to go to the lower actual clean and meets Darth Vader or just okay you understand don't do it trust me okay now you also when you doing out of body experiences sometimes you have what I call the evolution of the body experiences you can have a lucid dream no lucid dream is defined as you we you know that you're dreaming while you're dreaming okay and you can actually manipulate the environment so even if you went to the lower astral planes a month for this case you could say women this is a dream Hey grandma and change the outcome you know you can you can just say Hey bug off Darth Vader wherever you are you can do that now most people only dream of a negative review just emotionally upset and you don't know what you're doing they just you know panic and they wake up with this wedding you know and and they need that they can't be taken back to sleep because they're afraid to go to recreate the dream okay so those are some of the experiences that you can do that are much more how positive they're very simple and by the way when I mention some people have been emailed me when I mention about the stones and the oil for the psychic development or reading all these things are covered in great detail in my own leisure psychic powers but they can it is a link on the homepage for that I cover all the details only exercises like we did a much more but all the little techniques like the stones and the oils and fragrances and and things like that so you don't have to worry about memorizing them the role of every detail so these are at now when it comes out of body experiences relaxation is always the key you want to be able to relax no tight clothing as I mentioned no other distractions you want you don't want weird smells don't do if you're cooking food that has healed strong only to like garlic or whatever don't do that just to distract you deep breathing is very important the easterners would call that pranayama you know like you do yoga it's just nice just a brief deeply into now it's always good for your health anyway you want to choose a target if you want to remote feeling you want to go somewhere you want to go to Paris you want to go to London or if you want to go just to choose a target and repeat it to yourself many times prior to the actual experience and you always want to surround yourself with white light and your spiritual protection you want to allow your body to vibrate when you are very still while breathing deeply army lacks your body will become magnetized literally and it will begin to vibrate I don't have it that's natural vibration of the frequency vibrational rate has held the soul leaves the body by the way when the soul leaves the body at least a clone of herself like an alias on the computer she never could be process there's no danger in going out of the body I did either by you for three thousand times and I'm not call you from the actual plane I'm still on the earth plane and I play tennis every weekend okay very helpful all right let's take some calls here for you the lining up let's go to Joe in Monterey California to get things going Hey Joseph go ahead thank you for taking my call choice thank you Joe good morning the doctor Bruce good morning you said you live in Monterey yes you realize you're speaking with dexter Monterey too you got that okay go ahead with your question yes I do some of this and fact I do all of most of the things you do except for teleportation and I'm trying to work on that teleportation the most difficult thing ever if you have no since it is the toughest so that takes practice that okay how do how does one protect themselves well I need phone very from extreme sack attack and how this one noticed how do you challenge those of spirits of angels who or whomever you're going to communicate with because sometimes their imposters okay well we talked about that you listed early about the difference between the spirit guide versus the lower actual entities yeah okay so let's say that you want to allow actual entities you don't want to challenge him you don't want to help the bacon these entities have been around for billions of years okay you're not going out to base them what you wanted to just get rid of them the best way to do this is to enter the white light and go from the lower astral plane to the operational it's very simple as far as protection all my CD's have protection techniques the I use the white bubble before which is that's a very simple one we'll see what the best way to if you under any significant psychic attacks it's a balance to shock was doing the higher shockers link which is on my spiritual growth experience CD album that has six different titles including of course the beginning when the baby will exercises all the way to the advanced ones balancing the shock was connecting with what I call the higher shockers link and and accessing into your higher self when people talk about the white light that is your higher self by the way your higher self can manifest itself anyway can be a religious figure a mentor but usually it's a white light you always want to bring in the higher self it will help fuel the or repealed and when that happens no and negative energy can permeate your spiritual bodies so really psychic protection is actually pretty easy it requires repetition but it really isn't complicated in that case you'll never have a problem plus it will facilitate your ability to do out of body experiences and all the psychic techniques that we're discussing this evening all right next up Mike in Denver Colorado's with us Hey Michael go ahead thank you George thank you so much for taking my call and doctor Goldberg gets really a pleasure to speak with you I'm a big fan of your work and I think your work means a lot to my generation being a millennial so thank you I did have a a kind of a comment in the question so I I did read that you have been in contact with future time travelers which is extremely interesting and I was wondering if any of these time travelers ever alluded to any information about the current future events in the next ten or fifteen years I thought it would be kind of an interesting question well yes I had I've also train my patients the contact time trump is now he's a cold climate north and that's a whole different talkative self they'll make it simple the quantum dots have patients of mine had described contact with Conklin or to time travel is of course I wanted to cooperate to material they gave me and I did and what happens is what they say is that you're going to have the usual idiocy that happen in life but the the future is very positive the time travels are from the thirty first of the fifteenth century so people worried about nuclear war is or major viel bile chemical problems or this and that no you could have a little it's the things going on in our in and out but economically very positive and as time goes on over the next ten fifteen twenty years you'll see things becoming more and more spiritual interesting enough more positive they're always there always will be people trying to do stupid things but there's no real major endangerment is the key and as we go beyond the centuries and things get really heavy in a positive way so this is the like the last century of any kind of usual aggravation and stress and you know hypocrisy and all kinds of governments trying to play games but nothing super serious so you don't have to worry about that the time travels over the positive remember there us in the future so their incentives to keep us cool they can prevent any kind of major problems they can do anything they want you know and they they don't try to interfere too much with us but they do help us evolve more importantly they would never allow anything negative to happen because they wouldn't even exist if that happens so they have a self interest in our protection and our growth bursar regarding your weapon are couple emails from folks who want to know if it's just we looking at you and hearing you or can they respond back to you well that's a good question this is going to be on zoom is the entities if exactly do so I'm gonna be giving a talk now I just was hired to do this it should be a two way street because it's it's almost like I can face time so I have to discuss that with the the sponsor there I will most likely allow a certain amount of time for questions so I may give a formal presentation and I expect to allow a certain amount of time for questions and that'll be after the experience where I got him into it now so he should be at least a this is a two hour seminar you should be at least a fifteen twenty minutes or so for questions should be able to interact let's go to Monica in research or again welcome to the program hi Monica go

"We'll became the read me. Ripe K thirty per exactly. Oh Yeah Yeah and so. I do wonder what will happen with that. Need because without the ten I do wonder what the bomb is going to be eight sixty five compared to the fifty five obviously Z.. QUALCOMM will never tell us. The only thing I heard on the record was that phones with a sixty five will cost comparatively more okay. So they're they're admitting yeah. So that makes sense. Of course. QUALCOMM has every interest in up selling five G. is something you should buy is a vendor. But I do think you're right about that because the seven sixty five live You know to get a little nitty gritty on. It is actually significantly less powerful than the eight sixty five fairly important way. It only has two two of the high power course so Tanakh decor still but it's too high power cores in six low now of course not to say that makes it slow but it does put in definitively elite different class than sixty five and I'm sure the GP is probably about half is quick to qualcomm usually reserves a lot of DP had room for the top tier chipset releases says every year. So you know you'd have that but the interesting thing about that ship. Is that the modem in it does not seem limited in many ways. It's on die which is interesting interesting. I ever the first on die millimeter wave radio. I'm ever on a Lebron's mark on chip and it's still maxes out at far higher speeds than anyone will ever ever need in the next ten to fifteen years so it's like to me. That was kind of like guys we really saying. I need seven point. Five gigabits top speed. I would've taken three point seven gigabit and maybe a little little bit of extra power efficiency Different discussion I hang on. I want to go back there. I made a mistake. So the Red Meat K twenty pro had need fifty five okay. That was announced earlier this year here in Hawaii they actually announced the red meat case. Thirty pro would have a seven sixty five G.. Enter are putting seven hundred series into that K.. Thirty pro successor to the eight fifty five powered K.. Twenty pro. I don't see that going down well down very well either. Now now I mean it could be cheaper. I suppose And I'll be curious to see what really ends up doing but I'm sure they'll just go with seven sixty five. It's seven sixty five G.. Yeah granted anted which is has a GP twenty percent faster but. Yeah I mean this seems to be the trend and they're gonNA have to find a justified to their user base. Yeah I mean they're user Besa live and die on the SPEC sheet so that will be an interesting one to watch play out but I think welcomes leveraging themselves in the situation. They're saying that we have control all of the market in an important way next year. And we want to say if you want the goods you've gotta pay up. Otherwise were sticking you down a number of pegs on the ladder. Her with the next feasible option. While I mean the president of Xiaomi Lynn Ben was on stage yes and he made it very clear that the most important the partnership this company has is with qualcomm so I think whatever qualcomm says goes I think so and I think the first big year of five G. They have more control than anybody else. I mean mediatek and wow we can talk all. They want about their solution. But while we're almost nobody because I don't think anybody wants to really deal with with them and I think with media attack you come with so much performance baggage that nobody is really going to look at that as a serious high adoption. I mean I'll be curious to see how that chip does of course budge right out of the gate. You know they've always compared pretty unfavourably with qualcomm. I don't see that changing now. I don't see it changing either quite frankly but that that's kind of the chipset game you know and qualcomm seems to dominate at some of the FTC. Seems to be taking issue with three will. They were just the South Korean court just upheld. Old Eight hundred seventy three million dollar fine against qualcomm. So you know it's not insignificant. I missed that story out the bullet in the US but that doesn't seem seem to be the same in other parts of the world. Yeah and I mean it is fair to say qualcomm has an effect monopoly on this business especially when it comes to five jeep. I think right now. Outside side of China there is no other player to speak of Samsung. Does make five Shannon Modems. But they haven't demonstrate millimeter wave yet. mediatek hasn't demonstrated millimeter interweave. Wally hasn't demonstrated millimeter wave. So none of them have the solutions. And they've all proven historically to be significantly less power. Efficient qualcomm has an obvious tech advantage advantage. And they've wielded it to substantial effect in obviously killed Intel's motive vision and we'll see how that plays out inside apple over the years that's going to be very. That'd it'll be the real test whether qualcomm can get hold onto its near monopolistic grip in the US. Yeah and I think that will be interesting. Just because Apple Apple did successfully free themselves from the Modem and the Modem was the only thing they had hold onto and they proved that they didn't have to hold onto it they could make some sacrifices his and Brennan of the Intel Parts Basically kneecap the performance so that it was comparable Which is kind of unfortunate but apple has proven that small teams they are? I think they're a processor team. Something like I think. That's an several hundreds of people. It's not huge but they're processors they're gpu a lot of what they do. Zoo is on paper still performs better than qualcomm offering so I'd be really interested if they could do the same on you know our F- go quit meant it would not surprise price me. Yeah they have a pretty proven track record. I guess we're probably already running pretty long here. So we're at one ten okay. I think we can probably wrap it up You know we're not on switches weeks accepts. It wasn't live or in Maui and I think the the hotel Internet's a little jittery and the time could have been just weird schedule so.

"But at the same time. Google is a kind of a decision point. Do they want to be a consumer product company. Do they actually want that to be a core part of their business or is this something that somebody decided and is really kind of started to run. Its course and I do worry and think about at that because I wonder will do harbor division just basically become nexus again where we say well. We had these products but we feel the ecosystem of partners now. Fulfils that need. It does get to a point where we don't have Google home anymore because we will. We think everybody out there building. These products is doing a pretty good job. We don't see continued producing the speaker speaker but there is no other company. Has this problem where a partner like Lenovo with Bill. What is essentially a product nearly identical to the next hub? Yeah right in three sizes and it may undercut them in price but ultimately what differentiates a nest hub from Noble Smart Smart Display Seven. Nothing yes very little. So that is my issue was that is Google going to give its own products any advantage and should they. You know a lot of people say no because if Google is trying to be that everything to everybody company than that may ultimately affect you know when which shareholders resist that idea because then Google's ad business is not as accessible in as many areas. I I don't know. Yeah that's an interesting question. I mean how much money is there to be made. I mean obviously advertisements have worked out very well for Google and building products is worked out very well for apple you know. They're two very different businesses. And I think that's kind. What about also informed how Apple Google structure themselves in the last ten to fifteen years but with Google? They really do seem almost unable to help themselves to get the other fleet get in the other poll. They just seem to really relish the idea. I have to wonder if what point is vanity project onto far you. Are we really serious about this. And when you talk to people on the Google Harper team. There's obviously a tremendous amount of pride that goes into the work they do sometimes. It's deserved but not all. Oh Hayes and you do get centers tons of smart people there with really interesting ideas. I think the next hop Max for example is a product that a good generation ahead. The rest of the smarts Blake category hundred percent. Yeah the really smart people clearly worked on that and they gave it all the features at needed and I have heard nothing but praise for it. I personally haven't used used one but the reviews just seem to be glowing. They're great and I've used one and I agree and you said Google photos. Google photos is a near perfect product. And right I don't think they could've could've executed on it better. I mean they notify you way too much. Yes and their assistant features are kind of stupid. I don't necessarily want a notification every time and you color is one of my photos can daughter wanted you to have one. Yeah sure did so but I do think that bronze purposes photos is in your perfect product. ACT FOR USE. Stadia is another example of a consumer product that feels like a tech demo that was released to the public too soon and I wanted to bring up stadium because I see you're using a surface laptop. Three Microsoft is another example of a company which has to figure route. Is I think doing a better job. Yes figuring out what markets it wants to appease and which ones it wants to get out of there are very few consumer. Her projects left in Microsoft. Yeah gaming is basically it windows not so much. They are an enterprise company that happens to have a gaming division they do and that makes a lot of sense. It's what they started out doing. Not necessarily it's it's what their DNA I think represented and and they are are. If they're not worth more than Google today than they're pretty close there was more. Yeah they are worth more. Okay so this is a company that shareholders as well as users have largely forgiven for its mistakes and there were many and praised them with buying a whole lot of shares. And if that's the case then Microsoft's continued. Continue doing that. Yeah and I think Microsoft is a good analog because you've seen it Microsoft I think would love nothing more than to take xbox a shotgun out back and just destroy because they've married themselves so this product in many ways is so misaligned with where Microsoft is a company today a product that is strictly cost limited in hardware. There has to be developed so far ahead of time can never be on the bleeding. Edge constantly requires working one on one with huge groups of publishers. These other companies and so okay there in this business. We're obviously X.. Cloud is where they would like Microsoft and Xbox to go they want xbox to become a dog or preferably nothing at all for just a controller. Org Quite frankly a service you can put an odd. You're and so I think that's kind of where we see them. Moving with that with Google. I think that they've entered side of the consumer product business. That is excited. Leaves stickier to get out for them. I think phones is clearly fooball has had such a strange relationship with a smartphone. I own the next one and yes. It was a science experiment but I think at the time it was the best android phone. You could buy you know they were the only ones really going all in on full touch at that point and track ball and all of that but Google always felt like they had a lot of interesting ideas to share with their phones but they always had gin said Oh no it's just for developers. Just referenced vice is an increasingly I look at the Pixel. I got well actually using this phone I mostly feel the same aside from the cameras. Don't feel this is something I should recommend under regular people and so does Google just repositioning say what do we do. We just go back to that and say our products aren't meant to sell in the millions. Our our products are just meant to showcase their basically a tech demo. No Company would admit that I mean now I did mention I skipped over surface because that's another consumer facing brand but it's not huge. Never will be huge. I mean it's not necessarily used as a reference for other partners but like Microsoft soft has the benefit of having Layton Partnerships. That will never go away. You know it's informing a lot of this stuff. It works with Intel On a lot of stuff and the Google qualcomm relationship does not seem to be as symbiotic right. Google is just another Holcombe partner whereas I think because Microsoft has worked with with Intel for many many years they have just as much input into the design of future. You know laptops. He has Intel itself. Self I don't think Google has that power I agree I think the thing with Google and phones and I think looking at all these companies. You look at Apple. You look at Microsoft look at Google. I think there are certain products that can identify the portfolios and go some of these vanity projects for Microsoft. It's probably in the studio like that's something that probably various very very low volume seller. Incredibly expensive appeals to basically almost nobody designed for such a very narrow set of use cases or just for some pretty in an office at a startup with Apple. I think it's Mac pro Mac. Pro has no reason to exist. Doesn't exist yet exactly. You can't buy as today and even when you can realistically. Why does anybody need that? Machine Apple does not have to build that. That's totally ridiculous. I think that they do it because they feel like. At this point they have such success and had this image about image for them. They want the idea that we are still the platform that media professionals trust. It's not that they expect to sell a ton of the media Professionals necessarily it's that they want to point to it and say this is in our portfolio which I think was exactly trip. The trash can back to one hundred percent with Google. I do think it's becoming the phones. It's I think they want say we are developing the most important phone operating system on earth. How can we not have this? And at that point it becomes so at odds with the idea in having it as a consumer product division you know like is this needs to be financially viable. Can we just run through money and say this is basically self marketing advertising ourselves us and I wonder if somebody googles trying to ask those questions right now because I mean with the Pixel Four. I've seen no indication that it's any more successful in three. Has He's been on sales. I think Google probably would have to the torn by this point especially after Black Friday if there had been a real big jump in sales and I somehow doubt that ended up being the case here so I don't know where I was really going with that and I don't WanNa devolve into another pixel four rant as easily as ISLA. You've had a few of those. Yes in recent past yes. It's becoming a bit of a theme so let's see if there's anything else on the kind of on the docket today You know we we we. Didn't we have a couple of other news items here at the QUALCOMM conference but quite honestly they weren't very interesting. Motorola had budget phone. That wasn't much to talk about. And and I think that's probably about as much as there's a mid range qualcomm ships that which I think will matter in Asia but I don't see that mattering here very much so it's interesting about that. I just want to bring up one part about it so I did talk to qualcomm about the market in Asia. Where increasingly brands like real me and read me? PUT HIGH-END SNAPDRAGON chips into three to four hundred dollars phones upon the read me K thirty pro on talking about the real real meat To tongue phones that should cost more but somehow they don't write in a one plus a sort of in that ballpark but yeah they price their phones a bit higher. Next year there will be no flagship S. O. C. Without five right and that brings the the bill materials cost up considerably really and there is a real concern that that budget flagship market will just be wiped out where they won't be able to afford putting a sixty five into a phone and having cost three to four hundred dollars without losing a considerable amount of money and there's no part of that the user base that wants a seven sixty five right they want the latest and greatest and I'm interested in learning what we M.'s. Like OPO which is really and read me which is owned by show me are going to do with that. Yeah I mean some of them. A lot of them are easing seven hundred series. Now I don't think correal me has eight hundred hundred series phone at the moment. Abo- does have some so. I think the one of the big parts of that is definitely going to be how things China because China is moving so fast on five five G. in terms of getting their low frequency now rolled out. I think there will be a demand for the five G.. Founds and I think China has proven to be such a SPEC driven market. You want the latest and greatest. Listen I think eventually you know the fact that the average material wealth of Chinese households increasing no much quicker than Western world so I think probably there is some flex there and I think these phone makers are so competitive that having five G. will quickly become another notch in the belt for them where they have to happen. If they don't have they're going to be probably looked on fairly early. Unfavourably in India which is also a huge market for these funds probably plays out a little different I think. Yeah there's no five gene India twenty twenty. No so so I am curious about that because you shall meet tried with Pogo phone for like a blink there and that never came back..

"I don't know that motor would ever been into like an DM before before. I always wanted to brand their products. Except for maybe now I guess even all the Nextel stuff was I think it was Motorola handed. I have no idea. I don't recall either this this. This is Michael Fisher Fisher when but my fear with a razor is that what will happen is this thing will unfortunately again and for several. Good reasons be brutalized reviews. Because I think it's going to disappoint in a couple of key respects everybody's to look at the camera and say this is something out of two thousand fifteen and basically not worth using the USA screen. Real estate is questionable because of the old school. Notching in the top and bottom of the screen The fact that it's running Andrew nine out of the box but hopefully get ten very quickly but that's another one. There are a lot of these little sacrifices so I know we've already talked about this on this podcast before but I do think after using it had had a few more thoughts with that though I think. Let's let's talk a little bit about this event. We've been coming here for you reader last year. No baby so I was. I was stuck at home. Yes too busy being a father. Yeah so you know hawks. On this event for three the years now and obviously in full disclosure they pay to fly almost everybody out here they put everybody up in this very nice hotel. You know they feed. Yes well they take care of us. And it's all in the interests of frankly trapping on at this resort for four days so that they can tell us their story. Because I think it's a story that for most people probably isn't very interesting and one that is can be notoriously difficult to explain. I mean I think one of the great examples has been like A. How do you explain that to somebody and why it matters and especially in their phone? I think somebody may be in the abstract understand. Like oh Google uses a I. I use google things so is important Google but on your smartphone I think Falcons had a real bear of time and I think today during the presentation we can agree. It got really really really dry and esoteric really fast. Yes seems to still totally inaccessible. I think So I- I chatted with some of the QUALCOMM exacts post keynote and I asked him that exact question I said. How do you explain the growth and evolution of your AI engine to the layman where you are increasingly taking cycles away from the CPU jeep you you and putting them on this hexagon DSP? That is growing in importance. Both in your branding in the actual platform that you call snapdragon and what one of the one of the guys said. We don't need you to understand what it does. We just need you to know that makes things faster and I don't Oh. I thought that was a very unsatisfactory. Esser agreed because there. There's no such thing as magic. There's no such thing as this. This addition just this makes things better faster without actual developers and engineers and all everybody along the along the cycle having essay in how it works and one of the things that I took away from it was that they are increasingly relying on everything but the CPU because the CPU who has hit its Moore's law wall yet right. You're every year improvements in Cebu efficiency power are slowing and after after the big big jump from snap during eight forty five to eight fifty five which was basically just mirroring arms jumped from portects. A seventy five to eight seventy six fix which were massive compared to previous years this year. Moving from a seventy six seventy seven relatively minor. So they're like barely talking about the. CPA You but what we are talking about the fact that our AI engine is now twice as powerful at does fifteen mill built sorry trillion operations per second but again eh so difficult to visualize yes that it's completely irrelevant. It doesn't matter because what apps in our lives US news take advantage of those trillions of operation. I think the opacity around bat is really starting to be more and more difficult to like. Just talk away. Which is what we've had these companies do for a few years now? I know it's going to really matter. Matters for camera matters for virtual assistant manager all these things but none of the companies who develop these experiences Sirius' who make the AI who leverage these platform tools like tensor flow or The android neural net. None of them are coming forward and saying Oh. Our APP uses this and it does so so in this way and because you have this hardware that's able to leverage it can basically be natively decoded like. You're speeding up. We did have one example of that today on stage with snap They're increasing irrelevancy. I think probably just wanted the stage time. Also last gasp pay were finally taking android seriously right little bit ironic ironic that they were on stage. Varennes very weird. I definitely agree so I would love to see. I think we all would would just be some of the comments of like even Google. Google Google is still notoriously tight lipped on which of its APPS. Use A in what way we know for example. I think Google mentioned in post wants that the Google photos up when you search search for certain photos that's doing device. Ai So it's using image recognition on your device to search for a so if you search for picture of Brown dog that's using on device algorithms rhythms to find a brown dog which is incredibly cool. And I wish I could tell people more often. But we just don't get those stories as well speech to text and recognizes recognizes objects and. It's like those aren't very compelling and I know there's more going on I know they're part of the system that are using these things. Yeah no past. City city is is well makes it seem like whenever qualcomm announces X. Feature for its upcoming platforms. You're like might pixel four. Does this for example. Yeah so what is what is actually being done on the hexagon. DSP Eight fifty five on the Pixel Four. When it's transcribing having things in real time or is it? Is that something because we know that that's not being sent to the clouds. It's all on device. So what is different about this. Turnkey solution the QUALCOMM is offering versus something that maybe Google has developed in software to take advantage of the current hardware that qualcomm providing right. Ah I and I think that's actually been a real downfall. A lot of these demonstrations because we see companies like qualcomm regularly just N- even if not intentionally so just blatantly over promise us in terms of percentage so says big over promised during keynote without a doubt was the real time voice to voice translation from English to Mandarin Iran on a phone call. And I'm looking that and going absolutely no way. That experience ever works in real life in probably the next ten years of my life. At least it's going to be a long time before or that's really feasible. I'm sure the computing power is there when you're using certain vocabulary and the sense that it understands and translates reasonably well you you know. There's so many pieces that have to be in place for that to work right but I know I saw probably half a dozen tweets as soon as did that demo. Oh my God the snapdragon eight sixty five can translate of voice phone call in real time sick and talk to somebody in another language and I just WanNa be like guys. That's not happening like it's just not if any companies to do it's Google and also ensure didn't that they sure. Did they sure failed to do that. So far Google shown that it's actually pretty hard to do this kind of thing. Even for them I mean like we talked about like semantic segmentation in photos right that was a big part of it but audio has to have a simpler and Lor- semantic segmentation when it comes to breaking down what you're saying I mean they didn't get into things like accents. Didn't get into things like jargon or or colloquialisms. Oh cuisines right like if every single element of that pipeline is perfect maybe you get a usable translation that is not the way the people communicating of course not. It's like self driving cars quite honestly it's like you can account for ninety five percent of scenarios but it's at five percent that will keep that car crashing into a barrier. It's the person or a person so I think that those kind of demos are I would say there are a little here responsible because they said expectations nobody can hope to reach and I think that that kind of it in a way belittles conversation around day I in these kinds of things because I would much rather see conversations about like well. It's wanting to make this experience x percent faster. It's going to enable this when they talked about the new Google assistant briefly. I'm like that's the story I want to hear about because this is a piece of Ai that a lot of people are already using and probably the the most advanced virtual assistant exists on any phone. I want to know the story about how this new piece of hardware as enabling better experiences these. We have the next generation Google Assistant. So that's a big big one but we just don't get to hear that very often unfortunately and you know what's interesting is that they did have somebody from Google up on stage talking about security and the implementation tation of digital. ID's and how that's going to be put into android are and how they're working together to make sure that they're held securely but the devil that we got at Google I o last year of the new assistant if they come on stage and giving us the next generation or or even the one point five x improvement of that that specific product. I would have been very happy. Like here's how we are making always on next generation. Google assistant better using snapdragon. Dsp I think that would have been really easy to digest because hey we took this devil and we made it way better and we're actually going to give you that functionality. In in a couple of months yeah one hundred percent I think there's so many opportunities to make these compelling demonstrations and companies just have quite frankly the hubris ends up getting in the way where they're like no. We want to own this improvement. We don't we don't want another company and other group another technology to say that you know they have a real hand in this and I don't think that's fair air realistic to live in that world. Where you know your company's responsible for every piece that well you obviously have technology partners? Google couldn't build its own smartphone that's laughable even apple can't fool the build its own smartphone at needs partners you know. It's always about a partnership of technology so I think more recognition of that would be in the interest trysted everybody and it just an informed consumers and understanding how these products work and what the advances are by. I do struggle with that every passing year. It seems to get a little a little bit worse because honestly the smartphones being mature. There aren't as many like brand new use cases that we can point to and say Bam you know we're neighboring this. You can finally do it. The only one that really seems to remain as camera which is where we still do see noticeable improvements point things concrete numbers. You can do X. When when you couldn't do it last year this year welcome saying you're going to be able to do AK video on your found which I'm not sure I quite see the point of yet but obviously in the future will matter whereas in other pieces like obviously the stuff that I just don't see them explained quite as well but before we dwell on this too long. I think this is a I android and Google podcast. So there was big news this week not impractical sets but in a very overarching kind of Google as a company the the philosophy of Google. What it means for Google to be Google Larry Page and the circuit brand both retired basically? They didn't fully retire but they don't have titles anymore. They took their. They took their money and went to the board. They did so this has been I mean. Frankly I don't think anybody's surprised by this. Necessarily it's been a long time coming. Especially Larry I mean. Sergei checked out years ago like without question. He hasn't been around since the affair. Her with with what's his name The XIAOMI guy who's now at oculus Hugo Barra yes Hugo Barra yeah.

It's an excellent representation of a real life goes I can see some matting in the for and yes great painting We'll can I buy a print of this We'll put you in touch Birkin Bricks Mossberg Birkin ref is mom as a nation all right cool speaking of Burke and for those longtime listeners burke is master of all things at twit earlier earlier today he emailed us with some urgent breaking news and honestly. We haven't used it that much this year so Victor we got some breaking news and Victor's not prepared. Can you put it in. You can get me with some goats. I'll get you with breaking news. Lose all right you got me. I can't find the breaking news. Oh Wow was to me all right flow. Take it away with the breaking news. Gosh all right we we do. We do have to bring it back down to tap it because this is kind of serious is well. It's serious news but maybe you're probably not going to be surprised when I tell you that. Google Co founders. Larry Page and Sergey Brin have officially relinquished control of alphabet to our very own own. CEO of Google Sooner Chai So. I kind of feel like this is a move. We were expecting just with the way that things have been going the fact that sooner or Chai has been the the spokesperson the face for a lot of what has been happening internally and externally with Google for those who've been and following along It's it's been quite a year for Paul Ryan Kinda like step up and into this. You know really prime leadership role. Also also Larry Page's officially stepping down a CEO Page both page and Co Founders Sergey Brin though no longer be involved in day to day operations operations of Alphabet They have officially seated. All that too soon are chai. And there's actually marks the first time page won't have oversight if at least some of the company's operations He had turned over the CEO role. Before in two thousand one to Eric Schmidt but then page took on a product role He took over Google again. Ten years later when Schmitt had stepped down but now officially Super Chai is here to take over the helm and I guess lead us in. I mean we've already seen him lead us with you. Know all things android and related to android including chrome Os last The device structure development. But now it looks like he's going to be leading us with way the excuse me outweighs Why Mo- The self driving car initiative I I maybe ways has something to do with that too. If they don't have ways installed in Waymo then they're doing something wrong. That's uh so so many different projects. It's just it's news but it's not something that we're going to immediately see the effects facts of Ron. I want to know in Metairie. I WanNa know how you feel about this. Just both being Google fans and consumers of their products. Well the my first. I thought just the timing before we're talking about Soon Dr is that for Larry and Sergei to twenty one years since they founded Google in ninety the eight and at times they both kind of come in and out of prominence in the company as you mentioned But for twenty after twenty one years like They deserve a break. I think I think there's time for them to kind of reap the rewards of their hard work so I wish them well and it's been a fun ride I am curious. How Sundar is going to operate to companies kind of you know in how one operates as the CEO of both the parent company and one of the subsidiaries albeit the largest subsidiary But I'm very curious what this means. And what the what it will mean for the whole alphabet Google relationship conglomerate Matteo. What what's your take on it? I'm this doesn't really come as a surprise to me. We recently had the Google Pixel four event. We were all waiting for soon Dr to turn up up and he didn't. We didn't see soon dr at the the important Full launch of the Google Pixel so there was definitely something thing going on but I think that this is going to be interesting. Not only because sooner is going to be the CEO of both alphabet and Google. Oh but he's also going to have more direct control over their lobbying spending in Washington. This is soon Dr Holding Holding responsibility for the whole of Google. Not just that a parts that are directly products related so it will be very interesting to see how how Google moves forward under sooners leadership at especially with regards to the whole holding companies activities. I mean it's it's hard to argue. Sinndar success that Google since he he's since he became. CEO of Google. Like say what you will about sunsetting products folks or whatever whatever Google Gripe of the month that we have soon Dr. I think has been more of a positive than a negative flow. I I'm guessing you probably disagree with that. No actually I agree. It was the thing is is is very. He's A and I mean this in the sense of so he's a conservative leader but he's very focused one and so he. He tends to theme his leadership. Whereas in this is actually brought up in a couple of articles that are kind of looking you? You know back on on Sergei Brin and Pages time is there is A. There's a lot of showmanship for a while when it came to like Google products. And then those folks Kinda shuffled over to alphabet and is not really that showy. He's very much like this. This is business. This is what we're doing and this is the vision like this is the overall thesis of everything that we're doing the objective which I appreciate it as a person who who covers Google annaborough as a person who buys Google products because to me I see the cohesiveness of what the company is putting out and I think part of the reason I didn't have to be at the event in New York City for the Pixel Is because we're Costlo is the hardware guy and he is just just basically presenting fourth that vision that objective That China has kind of put put into place a couple years ago when he took over android. Did I mean this. This makes sense and I feel like he's worked hard enough and he's been doing a lot of I mean he's been the guy that we've heard from when when there's been some messy stuff happening at Google so also not a surprise that this is kind of like well you've had some practice dealing with the employees and with the product So now let's see what you can do with the investments for alphabet because that's that's no small feat it. It gets a little bit bigger when you go scale and also when you think about to that point not only the investments but the the water water one or Alphabets Holdings. You know if you if you look at it you know alphabet is a holding company that is that is responsible for something like one hundred thirty six billion in in revenue per year. Right so it's You know it's kind of fascinating to see how much that they have that they're going to have under him you know in terms of what they can do Yeah no so their revenue. Twenty eight thousand one hundred thirty six billion they're alive they're operating income was twenty six billion. I I mean it's just it's crazy. I mean it's over one one hundred hundred thousand employees at alphabet. So that's just not so it's kind of what you know whether it's google or google ventures here's or google fiber or Waymo or or you know You know whether Jigsaw are deep mind all these investments that they have a lot to kind of cover through and so it was kind of curious what they're going to do with it and you make you wonder how much of the change with nest that happened last year when Nesta's folded back in the Google will happen with some of these projects so Lots of lots of questions I mean. Congratulations send our. I mean it's it's it. We've watched his rise through the ranks of Google from a product to CEO and now alphabet. If he was here I wonder what he would say. I wonder what he would say if he were here. Just just to chime in hang on hang on Matteo nor was was here. He'd probably say what he tweeted. which was that I'm excited about? Alphabets long-term focus on tackling big challenges through technology. Thanks to Larry and surrogate we have a timeless mission. Enduring enduring values and a culture of collaboration exploration. A strong foundation will continue to build on and that was a very well crafted statement by the Dow CEO. They also Google Matteo go ahead and just want to clarify sooner definitely doesn't have a Scottish accent but one of the things that we've seen since Soon Dr has been leading Google and previously android and crew the crew divisions at Google is Google as a business as well as alphabet have grown up. We've gone from product launches with at the time Sergey and Larry throwing throwing the Motorola g one around they were also was the motored not the Motorola they're the HTC the the dream or or the G.. One they were throwing at the launch to the super polished grew up a clear communication that we had to the Pixel for lunch. Google has grown up and I suspect that some in great part thanks to sooners leadership agree. I totally I agree with that so to see how steers going forward to. That's for sure. Well so that's the big news but then you know like last week we were saying how so it was kind of a quiet news period as we are ready to ease into the holidays and a lot of the announcements behind us but seen a lot of bubbling up of malware air and vulnerabilities and things like that kind of in the news and then finally broke through this week with a couple of things that people should be aware of Most notably there's a new malware a threat called Strand Hog Notices not strand goat but Strand Hug So this was documented by Pro Mon- which is a security for firm that also has security APPs justify their And basically in a nutshell this This vulnerability that exposed enables militias APPs to masquerade as trusted the APPS and then request permissions. lie to get access like like to your microphone camera or reading your text messages and then do nasty things with them This study biped by Roman was validated by the folks that look out which is a popular mobile security APP and company that we're all aware of And lookout reported twenty-six ABS- in the Google. Play store Twenty six APPS that existed that are exploiting the disability the militias absolute at variance of the bank Trojan. That's been in in the market since two thousand seventeen and is a constant threat to the Google. Play store for APPS. I'm sorry thirty. Six APPS had this exploit and lookout confirmed that all thirty six of those APPs have been removed from the play store. So Google is being diligent about identifying asset. Have these vulnerabilities and getting them out of the play store but they are getting out there and they do exist preowneds. The report says the vulnerability is most dangerous and Android version six through ten which represents eighty percent of the user base and while the vulnerability already has it been patched yet by Google android. Ars Technica reach efforts statement and Google did provide this response said we appreciate the researchers working suspended the potentially essentially harmful apps they identified..

"That most people around the world will be, you know, will need to use some so this for free, and it's important privacy works in those situations as well. And, you know, we, you know, we don't use data from your emails, or your photos for advertising. We, you know, we use these Toyota photos, so that we can give it back to you, when you need it, and that you have peace of mind around photos. All right. Let's talk about China. Is Google currently considering reopening? Search in China. We have no plans to relaunch searching, China. You were thinking about it. You did do work inside of Google to map out what restarting search and China would look like. Are those conversations going on at all now or is there a zero percent chance that, that Google will restart searching China in the neck in the near term that are that are no plans for us to consider launching our sorts service in China? You know, we've always looked at, you know, you think about serving the next billion users. So as a company, you know, we, you know, admission compasses to provide information. So we evaluate that, but, you know, be would need that conditions to exist. And so, you know, we will do it on a set of principles that matter to us. And, and you mentioned conditions and look at the, the reason Google pulled out of China in two thousand ten was the hack and the human rights violations that were found is the result. But, but I asked because in two thousand sixteen you said, I've always thought Google was for everyone, and that applies to China, to, and you talked about serving Chinese users. Has something shifted in you. Your calculation on your willingness to even explorer, searching, China is that the fact that you have, you know, escorting to the State Department, two million ethnic might Muslim ethnic minorities held in camps in China. The Hong Kong protests, going on is it has that shifted fundamentally your view. You know, I mean that are often competing values, you know, we've talked about your content responsibility on YouTube. It's. Yeah. So, you know, we see the benefits we get provide information to users, but we don't want information presented in wrong way to our uses swale. And so these are issues, we grapple with, you know, across the world to be honest, you know, the, the comply with laws and regulations. And so, you know, it's always a set of continued conversations. We have at Google. But when you say conditions it sounds like you're talking about the human rights issues in China. Right. Eating for us. You know our ability to present ourselves innovate that, you know, use this can see. See us that I direct without censorship. Censorship is is an important condition. So is any level of censorship. Okay with Google if they're researching China or you saying, it would have to be uncensored by the government, you know, I don't want to speculate on a hypothetical situation, we have no plans. And you know, we are not spending time on it time on it today. A few months ago, the chairman of the joint chiefs chairman, general Joseph, Dunn for testifying before congress. And he said that the work that Google is doing in China. Quote is a direct benefit to the Chinese military. What did you think when you heard that in what, what's your response? You know, I think we, we took a chance to clarify. We are not doing any work in China. We have a limited presence in China and delimited AI work. We doing China, which we are transparent about is our open source, project, and slow us. We do some nonprofit work in China. So I think we've had good conversations on that and played up any misunderstandings. I do think that it's important for people to know the decisions that, that Google has made in terms of. You know what it's willing to do with AI and the defense department, for example, when you look at, at project, even an ending that or pulling your initial bid ten for ten billion dollar DOD contract because of ethical concerns. Can you can you walk me through how much employees influence that decision? We are, you know, they've been concerned about how we thought fully develop. Yeah. I and you know, I think he is powerful and we have come at it, too partnering with US government. You know, consistent with our AI principles beating, there are many areas, including cyber security, search and rescue missions. You know, veterans health Amini base, by which we think we can apply in a way. That's benefit. She'll be have had some concerns about weaponization and, you know, and so we have drawn some lines, but if you've been transparent about it, and, but we have come into constructively working to help the country where we can never some employees that felt that working with the defense department, for example was profiting off. You know, war and potentially making drone strikes more lethal, and some of them wrote to you, and the, and they spoke up Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO recently said, if big tech companies are going to turn their back on the DOD this country. Going to be in trouble, where do you to different this. You know, I actually want me. We are that many ways we were can collaborate, you know, with the US government, we can't about our national security as well. We wouldn't be able to do what we do as a company if he didn't enjoy the freedoms you know, that, that we can and cherish. So I think, you know, on a practical basis, I think we'll be doing a lot of work, and, you know, so I think, you know, there's not much much of a difference. We are considered a senior a researches who are working on these technologies. No different from people who are working on genetics were concerned about the lines. And you want to do your work and, you know, we respect our views and you know so we are being very thoughtful and, you know, we'll be public about what we do. And what we don't decision that Google made. That intrigued me is that, that you guys made the decision to stop allowing Google assistant, which is what's used in Google home. If people have in their houses. Two two record as the default so you change the default mode to not record after it, here's the prompt. Hey, Koogle Amazon's Alexa, the default Scillies to, to record for purposes making the machine learning more intelligent etcetera. But that, that's a big difference. Why did you make the change in general? You know, we are looking at how to simplify and make it easier for for us to many my sedate IB have, and we're looking at everything we do just recently at Google. I o we don't be offered auto delete controls, so you can tell Google after three months or eighteen months, you can just, you know automatically have your data be deleted. So we're constantly looking how many mice data while we can provide the experience. We have gotten more data more rapidly and made the machine smarter. If you had just stuck with. Record as the default. But did you think there was an ethical issue with that? Is that why you changed it? Oh, you know, we wanted it to be user choice in general. And, you know, I think that many uses who you know, they want sometimes that are caught off, or they are doing because it has value to them. And so, you know privacy is inherently very personal and, you know, the, you know, you know, depending on your life situation that you are the context in which you're using our products where it's in your home or not, you know, people have different privacy expectations. And so we are trying to match that make it simpler. And I think they have more work to do, but you're going to see us do more and more they're Amazon threat or opportunity in a bowler Google a boat. You know, today, many people use Google, and they byproducts of Masan. So we partnered with them on many, many places that I eighty s we compete with them when I think it's good that is actually a lot of competition. Amongst the big companies to and you know, and so, you know, that's what gives rise to more innovation. And I think ultimately consumers benefit, let's talk a little bit about women specifically and diversity. So if you looking at the latest numbers women make up thirty three percent of Google's global workforce twenty-six of leadership positions, assuming, you want to get that to fifty fifty I know there's been a lot of work on this front. What's, what is the number one thing you think Google can do to get that to truly equal? I think it comes to ensuring that, you know, women have a very inclusive, and, you know, the, the expe- when they are at work, you know, you know, we are growing fast numbers. Make it taught to actually find the talent pool at the rate at which we are growing, but we have very committed to that. And this is why we have transparent about, you know, we went off the first companies to be transparent about the numbers and shot it outside. And then, you know, it's about investing in them, you know, in their career, development and supporting their work experience all the way through, you know, it's, it's a big part of the answer. I think the Labor Department is taking a look at, at whether Google has underpaid women and you guys recently didn't internal study to that. And. Youtube CEO says or would shaky told me a few years ago that she actually personally goes through the salaries that YouTube, every so often to make sure that there is not that pay discrepancy. Do you would you be supportive Sundar of, of legislation requiring big companies like you guys to publicly disclose? Pay for men and women in similar roles would that would that help. I mean, if you know, we are happy to have transparency would divide structure. You know, you have to look at the data carefully because at different levels, different geographic regions. This is an area that we invest, so many of these system, make sure we get it, right. And and you know it's one of the most regressive mystical analysis. We do with the right scrutiny at all levels of the company, and, you know, and, you know, we have very confident that, you know, we have pay equity within Google, but, you know, but it's also about not just pay for a given level for both genders. But it's about ensuring. That, you know, women are able to progress through the augmentation, because, you know how you how you rated how you're evaluated how you promoted all of the insect contrary start. That's right. Are you starting of the big most public decisions you have had to make so far as CEO is firing a Google engineer who in two thousand seventeen wrote an internal memo arguing that women because of our biology are just not as good at tech, and that having women in these roles made Google less competitive argued the gender pay gap was a myth. You fired him. He's suing. I'm interested for now. Twenty nineteen. What did you learn from that, you know why, you know, for me it was important as a company in a you just mentioned? We already struggling to make sure of, of whenever truly inclusive, expedience getting that a presentation. And making sure they can progress at all of the company I do think they face headwinds today. Particularly in the tech industry. So I felt. Increased sense of boredom on making sure we create that environment around all of that. So, so speaking about that, I know that you think a lot about the employees situation after the walkout last year about twenty thousand Google employees in about fifty cities, walked out to make a point number of issues, but largely on the handling of some sexual harassment situations and at the company, this is following Andy Rubin leaving with a ninety million dollar payout and Google will not talking about that publicly after sexual misconduct that he denies. You told the New York Times last year we're taking steps to do better. Can you talk to me a little bit about what has changed since the walkout initiated, many changes, even leading up to that moment? But we took the moment as you know, clearly acknowledging that we need to do a lot more. We heard from a lot of people women and men about how things can be done better, one of the most important business decisions. I made was ending that requirement for four star. Betray Shen, right? And to be clear, you know, even through arbitration we didn't have confidentiality provisions but we ultimately decided it's better for employees to have the choice. And so that was one of the bigger decisions. We made did the walk out Google a better company. I think so. You know, I think our implies clearly spoke at a moment when the company hadn't got him it. Right. And, you know, and I think you know, there were many people across the company who participated in. Sort of that. And I think I think it's a good part of our culture that we were able to knowledge something publicly and, and work hard to get things better. Two of the organizers behind the walkout have publicly said that these women Meredith and Claire felt backlash for their role, one of them just left Claire and cheap. She she wrote about, you know what she felt and why she felt like she couldn't stay. She talked about the head of her department, branding, her with the scarlet letter does that concern you and, and is that being investigated..

"Or Washington, it costs you three dollars to buy the shoes day in the times, which is the inflation rate on that has been insane. And the price insensitivity of what few remaining new STAN consumers that raw has been astonishing to behold that people will pay seemingly pretty much any amount of money for that physical newspaper when they wanna buy that fiscal newspaper in a way that no one dreamed back when it was, you know, a quarter or something they will we need to make sure that as many people read this sort of under price it tens out. They need to do that. I saw that. I thought this is interesting when the last time I bought physical newspapers was when I was carving pumpkins, and I needed news neighbors, and I'm looking at what to buy and I was going to by the time go by this. I bought like four copies of the post. A why these copies of the post? Well, from color perspective when the t- have been the right? Is the way to go. My number is eighty five million dollars that is the combined revenue of the two most popular meditation apps. Calm and head space with sleep money sponsor in the okay? Well, apparently, they they're in a head-to-head kind of meditation app. Yeah. And they were both the CEO's of both companies quoted in the journal kind of like saying mean stuff com means stuff about each other. But people pay for the cost thirteen dollars a month to get a meditation app and people are willing to shell out money for this. So to Josh's point earlier, if they're paying thirteen dollars a month for meditation up, they could sell it a few bucks for some quality something people willing to spend. Nothing doing nothing. It's they're spending on it to get rid of everything. So that they have nothing. That is a good business is a good my number two in my number is two of the people in the hearing of Sundar Pichai representatives, duly elected by the American people who held up iphones. Why something didn't work on their iphone and his his look? And and you know, it's hard to feel sympathy for tech boss, and his look was are you guys fucking kidding? I going to and so the reason I bring this up, and I only watched about forty minutes of this hearing is that what clear of the past year is that our elected representatives could not be less qualified to regulate technology, and it's gotten to a point where. Yes for a person who puts on a television show every night. It's fantastic. I mean, super cats these guys just Orrin Hatch asking, Mark Zuckerberg. Well, if you don't charge for it, how do you make money and Mark Zuckerberg finally using his shooting grin for good and say advertiser, but we're in a place where this these businesses have a huge role in American life. And it's unbelievable to me that the regulators don't understand. We can we Americans freeload on Muggeridge to Festa. In the Europeans and get them to do the regulatory heavy lifting. Will we have been? I mean to this point we really have been. I what's interesting to me about the current freshman class in congress is that they have had experience as candidates with social media that their elders have not. And so they are bringing different kind of knowledge to bear. When they enter this body. They have been harassed online. They've seen the power of these platforms. I think all of them are kind of itching to get onto committees where they can talk about these things. But you know, when you ask how do we get where we are? It's because we have, you know, an average age of people in their mid sixties to whom technology so alien that they don't know that Sundar Pichai doesn't make phones on which note, we will wrap up this predictively depressing episode of slate money. I'm Josh thank you very much for coming in. We're gonna have a late plus segment with you. I think but. But we're gonna see if the book recommendations many, thanks to both June Thomas and Mexico that you think and we'll Q next week on sleep money..
