How to Fill a Few Seats At The Cinema? Rent Them to Gamers
"March in the early throes of the coronavirus pandemic. We brought you a story about how a devastated movie theater industry found a glimmer of hope by turning to that old american classic the drive in movie theater that hope was short. Lived though as many drive ins were forced to close because of stay at home orders in some cities and cold weather and others. But now there's another small light at the end of the tunnel for an industry. That's been gutted by the pandemic this time. The story starts in south korea with movie theaters around the country closed or operating at a limited capacity and film releases largely on hold due to covid south korea's largest cinema chain. Cg v had a bright idea. the company started renting out. It's largely empty theaters to folks who might enjoy the use of a big screen and surround sound. You know video gamers gamers. Pay up to a hundred and thirty five. Us dollars to rent out a theater. Video games consoles and controllers not included and renters. Told the bbc that gaming in theaters pretty cool the sound quality is top notch and the graphics are almost lifelike turns out a. Us theater chain was already on the gaming in the theater trend after a gutting year for the cinema industry most us movie theaters shut down in march early on in the covid. Nineteen pandemic and while some chains opted to carefully reopen some locations. Last summer those were shuttered again. In the fall when cases spite put simply putting up two hundred people in a room while they sit on coke munch on popcorn at the screen. Well you know. It's just not safe so malka theaters which operates thirty-six cinemas in the southern. Us rolled out. Its malko select gaming at several locations. Last november up to twenty gamers can book a theater for one hundred and fifty dollars in play until they drop or until three hours is up. Whichever comes first. i'm thinking it might be. The latter malko also allows customers to book private film screenings for up to twenty people and sells food and beverage packages alongside the reynolds malkhaz twenty twenty revenue down ninety percent from twenty nineteen thanks to the covid nineteen pandemic and while renting out theaters to gamers film. Buffs is one way to avoid closing down completely. It's not making the chain much money. Karen melton malkhaz vice president and director of marketing told the bbc quote. It's gaining traction and becoming popular but nothing is adding to our profitability at this point on quote and that's the harsh reality for many theater chains. Amc theaters has spent much of the pandemic on the edge of bankruptcy after revenue fell ninety one percent. The chain managed to raise over nine hundred million in new equity and debt capital rap reported. The injection allows the chain defend off bankruptcy for now. Amc started renting private theatres last fall at around ninety nine dollars a pop for screenings though not for gaming although for an extra hundred bucks you can score a microphone to welcome your guests. Meanwhile screen rental from rival cinemark costs around one hundred dollars another chain. Alamo draft house offers private screening starting at three hundred dollars which includes tickets and food when you think of the average pre virus movie screening with around two hundred customers paying an average of a little over nine dollars for a ticket. That's eighteen hundred dollars that the theater brings end before even popping a single popcorn kernel at the often pricey concession stand private screenings and video game parties just can't cut into all that red still on the horizon for cinemas is. Well what is that. Hope as a million americans received the covid nineteen vaccination each day some theater chains are cautiously reopening at diminished capacity. Of course most amc theater locations are open in accordance with state and local guidelines and malka reopened several theaters in late january and earlier. This month of course strict guidelines are in place for one you can say goodbye to endless soda and popcorn refills and in theater service but still after the year that the cinema industry has had anything is better than nothing. Even if at anything involves a little. Mario kart

New Generation Of D.C. Statehood Advocates
"On a recent evening about sixty young people in their late teens and early twenties log into a zoom meeting. They live all over the country from new. Jersey to California but they're committed to the cause the organizers start introducing themselves I everyone. My name is Jen Mandel black. I'm Michael I use he him pronouns. Hi Everyone. My name is Jimmy the advocates on this call are preparing to meet with their US senators virtually of course to talk making Washington DC The fifty first state organizer Michael Copy says statehood is one of the key civil rights issues of our time over seven hundred thousand DC residents most of whom are black and Brown folks do not have access. To be the very democracy that surround sound, this big statehood energy is relatively new as recently as a decade ago, statehood was seen as a political dead end Democrats in Congress generally supported it but they didn't make the legislative priority even when they had the chance seventy, nine year old niece Jenkins started advocating for statehood in the late nineteen, ninety s we are the old school we are the gangsters. Of the statehood movement, the Oh Geez back then DC was still struggling to get on solid financial footing statehood did not go over. Well, we were Kinda ridiculed for DC, statehood was not on anybody's limps, grassroots, activists and officials like DC Mayor Mariel Browser made it a priority in this hyper partisan time we're living in DC statehood has become a core part of the National Democratic Platform, the House of Representatives the summer passed a bill supporting DC statehood for the first time in history. The next hurdle is getting it through the Senate which advocates hope will soon be controlled by Democrats. A new generation is on board with this 'cause on the recent zoom call twenty, two year old DC resident demi strap man gives her fellow advocate some advice when it comes to preparing to meet with actual elected officials or their staff you have to be confident to not feel like you're invading their space. They are your elected officials. You have the right to speak with them because she's from DC Stratton no senators to lobby herself and the district's one representative to Congress Eleanor. Holmes Norton can't vote on final versions of bills. That's why young advocates today are hyper focused on getting people from outside the district on board with the statehood 'cause I actually grew up in Pennsylvania. So I kind of took my representation for granted before right moved to DC twenty, four year old Noah wills now lives in the district and runs the advocacy group students for DC statehood he's working to expand their chapters at universities side the district he also wants to get university students in. DC. Bought in while they live here and by doing so they're there really are gateway to the rest of the country wheels and other statehood advocates still have a lot of convincing to do last year in a Gallup poll less than a third of Americans said, they favor d. c. becoming a state. But after this summer's protests over police brutality, some young advocates WanNa push a angle to the statehood 'cause racial justice twenty, two year old DC native Jamal Holtz, points out. The DC is forty, six percent black retreated a second class citizens, and so these statehood is a civil rights issue. Holt says the black lives matter movement and DC statehood are completely intertwined for the first time in his life. He feels like statehood is possible if Democrats take the White House. And Senate and make it a priority. He grew up wanting to be the mayor of Washington DC, and now he's already thinking about adjusting that dream. It'll give me a new goal in life and not limit myself the mayor but make it governor for Wam you I'm Michaela. FRAC to
Marvel's Spider-Man followup on PS5 features Miles Morales
"INSOMNIAC tweeted today. Spider Spiderman Miles. Morales is the next adventure in the marvels. Spiderman Universe we will reveal more about this. Stand alone game at a future date Hashtag. Miles, Morales ps five Jason Schreier of course from Bloomberg still doesn't feel right to say added this on Twitter News Spiderman Miles. Morales is not an expansion or enhancement or re master. Despite a Sony executives comments this morning, a source tells Bloomberg News Nor is it Spiderman to it is a brand new standalone game similar in scope to uncharted loss legacy. which makes sense is exactly what I wanna hear I think that's exactly what we all expected. They announced were now state yesterday right like it. Being called Marta Man's spider man miles, morales it, not necessarily having a to in the title and it also like showing off that trailer that had if had no Peter Parker to. Where if you finish the first game, you'd understand why that feels off in terms of Peter Parker being nowhere in the game or in that first trailer. He's probably going to be in the game. that does that doesn't necessarily feel like a spider man to like feels like some some sort of spinoff. Offshoot title, but like not off shoe or spinoff in a bad way right like my brain Amelia went to try to las. Vegas I think that's where we all kind of done to if. Out and it's like a forty dollar thing and you get like what like ten to fifteen hours worth of story and Gameplay and like New York and even if it is the same, New York from spider man twenty eighteen. That is maybe slightly altered it in some ways to bring up the speed like that's all i. that's all I really expected. I think that will be like a really good satisfied experience. All I want more hours in this in the. Went Back and watch the trailer again last night. Right seeing miles. play a far different than what spiderman does seeing him. You know swinging in a web in a webs- seeing him swing in a way that is not the exact same web-slinging. We saw from Pete in Spiderman like that's what I'm looking for I. Want a thing and if it's going to be on par with loss, legacy beautiful perfect. That's all I need. I understand that and I. Think it's a smart way to do it of. What we're talking about right where Spiderman to was not gonNA, be ready for launch, nor should it be necessarily right in so rather than rush that put out this experience something like first light something like a loss legacy something where we can getting moved exist back in this world. move the plot forward. figure out what's going off miles in then get nutty with responded to. Assume setups about him into. How. How different are let me ask you this? How much of an upgrade you think is going to be from Spiderman twenty eighteen like You New York is going to be that different is the main difference going to be like more story and a different like different abilities man I think the main difference. Will you ask two different Russians? They're the main difference gameplay. Yeah, be that miles feel distinctly different than Peter. Did with his Venom Strike and all that jazz? I think he'll play different. Feel different, obviously new story now I'll be awesome I think the other part of it is that this will finally be. The chance for playstation two flex. The muscle talked about in every one of these wired articles. Right of Lookit Spiderman. There's no more load times you can swing over there on the draw distance in like it'll be taking spiderman PS, four, which already beautiful game putting it onto playstation five putting ray, tracing on all those buildings, putting reflections into all that pudding the surround sound into all better, the Three D., whatever the hell sound. They're calling it. Your ear putting all that in. Whatever putting all that all those bells and whistles onto a game that was already gorgeous in then releasing that

Empty Cinemas and the Streaming Giants
"Prices aside. Going to the movie theater was an escape all entertainment all no matter what entertainment you like whether it's opera whether it's rap concert whether it's a wrestling match whether it's a boxing match whether it's a fight over the last Good Glass of drinking water in Flint Michigan. It doesn't matter what it is. Yeah all entertainment is an escape from your life. It is entertainment it's supposed to entertain you no matter what it is and what the movie theaters. It was a place to go other than your home. You could go and sit in fairly decent seats for the most part over the years they've upgraded. They've done the stadium seated things and everything else. And it's cool when it's whatever some theaters still having upgraded sadly but you could go for two hours or sometimes less than sometimes more and watch a movie and be fine and happy for me help. I approached going to the theater unless I was with my mom or somebody or other people I would go at the most opportune time for me. Which was mostly like one o'clock in the afternoon eastern time on a Monday morning when everybody's just getting back from lunch and going back to work so basically the feeder would be empty because nobody should be there at one o'clock in the afternoon on Monday morning take any number of transformers live action films. I think I saw a little ones. I did see in theaters. I saw two of them the Monday after they released. And there is nobody in the theater because I am not a person that likes crowds at all. You know you mentioned last week about the introvert. Extrovert thing I'm both I but generally I prefer to be away from people. I've been social distancing. Since I was ten years old but the movie theater it was cool. It was great. You could get something to eat if you wanted to or drinkers snack or whatever. Generally I never got drinks because I didn't want to be that more on that. Got Up in the middle of the Movie Day because he had to go to the bathroom kind of I hate. I hate that so it was great. It was cool. It was something on a large screen and it was fun. Going to theaters and lately hasn't been so much fun because it costs so much. Yeah and the thing is to like being wor am in my point in life. I just don't have time to go and it's not really on my radar like so generally do wait for streaming and do. I love the experience of going to the theater. Yes because honestly there's nothing quite like it because you get the giant screen you get the surround sound you get the the full immersion into it whereas when you're at home you know you have distractions you use your phone you You may be doing something else while you're watching it like. I have two monitors like generally I'll play a game on one a watch net flicks on the other end. So it's kind of a toss up of what I'm paying attention to But that being said Other than when I lived in the Flint area in having annoying person that had like the loudest freaking bags of food in the world Crackling around me. Or that couldn't stop talking on their phone or stop talking in general So you could get immersed in it I genuinely didn't joy going especially for something that I liked like. You know the Star Trek Cord you know I saw star wars in there for a while and then I didn't see the last one but in the theater but But Yeah I mean there. There was a lot of reasons to go the only problem that I see now that they've had to utterly close aside from the fact they're going to have to do a deep clean when they opened back up because of cobwebs is that. S- we've had hit that point where instead of billion dollar box offices we have zero dollar box office and you went from having like back in the day they were lake. You know okay. We would have like a couple of huge movies every month. And you know you'd have like kind of a rotating panel of some movies every week. You know enough for like every day of the week pretty much instead of having like anywhere from fifteen to twenty movies. Come out every week. Which is what we were getting. Honestly it'll majority of them with the platform that we're on now with having streaming in movie theaters about half of those should go streaming because there's a lot of them that are not strong enough contenders for the theater. And they're somewhere. You should be fully immersed in being the theater for them and I it's it's GonNa be really telling when this is over when this whole pandemic over because the large that this huge monumental amount of movie theaters that are shut down across the globe. Some of the services like NBC. The they're they're peacock service. They have Nbc Universal granted NBC and universal are both owned by comcast who's also a cable company in ISP and Just content providers well They broke the theatrical window which they've been trying to do for years Even as comcast before they went and they've been trying to break this for years in like paper view movies where you get them immediately. Well now they can actually do that because they have their own service and they can use their xfinity x. one is they will make movies. Available on demand immediately says Granted you know dreamworks? The trolls movie. That came out man. It's it says that you know insiders say the movie isn't a blanket policy for the studios and tear twenty twenty calendar in that decisions regarding other titles and the duration of the policy haven't been made yet But I I have a feeling that we're going to start. Seeing kind of a trickle down effect of certain movies immediately going this route And what they're doing to compensate is this is movies will be made available on a wide variety of on-demand services for a forty eight hour rental period at a suggested retail price of nine hundred ninety nine in other words the same would be to buy the DVD when it comes in they're saying in the US and the price of quivalent whatever it is in the international markets The they're basically saying that it's They're also trying to provide options for consumers who cannot or should not go to the cinemas Which I kind of like that option to see it from home however think that they're charging that much because it's a new release and YOU'RE GONNA be watching it from your home flakes convenience of it in there. Estimating that would be buying the estimated that you would be buying enough tickets for everyone in your family but yeah I don't I don't know like it's it doesn't seem that bad all right so anyways. I was stating that the nineteen thousand nine suggested retail price for for forty eight hour rental window for the movies while I liked the concept and the idea because I have a feeling this is going to stick around win the theaters. Come back Whether they all come back or not is a different story. But I have a feeling that this is going to stick because they've been trying to get this market for quite some time and to have this readily available now right. I think that it's GONNA stick. And for for instance for me like I don't go to the theater because I don't have time to go now. Granted when I go it's usually solo anyway and so that would be like seven or eight dollars. You know. Drop RIGHT THERE. So nine hundred ninety nine is not bad. If you're having the whole family watch it like I kind of get it there. But I can't see a lot of people lake generation or younger paying twenty bucks a month to go see every new movie that comes out to be honest like especially when there's other means that China provides you know alter Geeky caster network do not adhere to stolen China viruses. No or you know. They're pirates. Yeah but like I I. Honestly don't care I'll wait until hit streaming and then watch it legitimately but but yeah. So like they're they're talking like all these different companies or having To kind of shift their paradigm of how. They're going to do things or you know like. Mgm was the first to make a major shift when pushing the James Bond Movie. No time to die from late. April to November in hopes that it will still come out in the theater so and then you know like there's some other movies that have shifted from this year to this time next year trying to avoid it so it's it's GonNa be kind of a interesting time with the theaters kind of trying to predict what directions they're going but I do know that if people do not return to them after they opened back up that it's going to collapse this entire system of Louis
Sony 360 Reality Audio: This headphone-virtualization system expands music beyond your head
"We'll or home theater key kello scotto take leo how're you doing we should mention that these sony surround sound headphones you're talking about a couple of weeks ago that review is now up on tech high dot com correct and i really love it they aren't they aren't the headphones per se you can use the system with any headphones you want oh so there's just a just a headphone hamper hamper headphone no it's a headphone it's not even a box it's an app you put on your phone what yeah it's noth- nothing it's the cost nothing and there you go but you have to listen to the phone you have to have a headphone you have to have a pair head and also as smartphone right because he has a smartphone yeah yeah you gotta have a source for the the music will be your smartphone well it'll be there are actually three sources so yes you have to pay for the for the swords i have to pay for for title title or cobras q. oh b. u. s. b. jozy as ah cobras or nuggets dot net and you GS and nuggets is specializes in recordings of live concert ooh i i like that which is really cool very because the music itself has to also be encoded in this war has to be encoded in this format called three sixty reality polity audio from sony and what they do is they have to remix it basically they have to mix it in this format and it's a the format is very much like dobie atmos- that that is object oriented so each instrument or sound emitting element in the mix is an object and you can place it anywhere in three d. space so that is one thing to point out is at least unhugged dot net they're taking concert recordings and remixing them they're not getting spatial audio from some sort of interesting recording setup there they might be it's possible i'm looking at like i mean i doubt in two thousand nine bruce springsteen recorded his show correct correct that way but maybe the newer stuff they might be correct yeah i mean new new artists are mixing in this format to begin with wow this is tempting i might i might have to try nuggets dot net because i would love to you know two thousand nine springsteen concert and surround sound like you're standing in the audience that'd be leading more than surround sound how can it be more than surround well because they can place objects over your head up down left right all round yeah exactly and on a live concert they wouldn't typically put the guitar you know above you you know or the drums but they they would put audience ambient sound above you nice and of course if you're in a if you're in a hall with a roof there's your reflections from overhead all right you have to make the the the music the file has to be mixed in this format right and and then you then it's streamed from tidal or cobos or nogues and any headphone that you happen to wear while you're streaming it will will render the file so that it sounds so full and i mean is it really going to have to try it there's a thirty day trial in eggs on any of them all okay idle and cobras also have thirty day probably worth doing because you don't know what is at least you don't i'll have to buy new headphones or buy new hardware now if you if you do buy or have a certain select sony headphones you can go one step farther farther ooh which to tell you the truth i didn't find to be all that advantageous that's the one thing about it that that i wrote about in the in the review but if you have sony headphones and i had the w. h. one thousand x noise canceling wireless headphones sony sent him to me you can use used the sony headphones app which is also free to take pictures of your ears and what it supposedly does is creates a custom profile for your ears because everybody's ears are uniquely shaped it's almost like fingerprints you everybody's ears are different and the way that sound in the in the environment around you diffraction around them is unique based upon the shape of your ears so if you take a picture of your ears it with the sony app and then apply that the algorithm that generates as a result to the incoming incoming stream from title or co buzzer hugs then supposedly you get an even more personalized more realistic
Sonos to deny software updates to owners of older equipment, backlash ensues
"Sonus has has said in a blog. Post that it may they will stop providing software updates for their old products and those products will not receive new features this impacts legacy devices Of which there are few including zone players the connect and connect amps that were put out between two thousand eleven and two thousand fifteen. The first generation play five this year two hundred controller end of a bridge They had will. Obviously one of these products are very old And especially the ones that were introduced you used a long time ago. Sono says were introduced before the advent of the iphone were music streaming which music streaming and being a huge way that we consume audio at this point in human history Interestingly Sonos told the verge urge that they're creating their introducing away for customers who want to keep using the legacy hardware to separate those products from the SONA systems. Because if they if he don't separate the old hardware from like your existing sound system it the the system as a whole will stop updating because it it is like linked to the legacy hardware. So what a beautiful. I think exhibit of how what a cluster truck butter the world is that we live in now although I totally support like not update like at a certain point. You can't say Oh yeah. spotify is never going to release an update that it that that is incompatible with our hardware from twenty eleven like I totally understand that but who we so Chris so before we can you help I. I assume we've reviewed these or NEON owner and I've I've used them. Yeah so help me understand this because I read the story. And they're they're alleged alleged claim. We can't develop new features if we don't if we can't move forward which is fine on the surface but I don't understand like what is the feature on this I assume they're connected wirelessly through your wirelessly through your home right right with the smartphone. What is this product? Because I don't understand okay. So basically soon was one of the very first mainstream wireless speaker systems so you know the idea would be you can have speakers speakers that are in different rooms of your house and you can control them from a it used to be a controller and then it went to you know your ipad in your phone back in the day like this is like two thousand five two thousand six they had like an actual like expensive controller. That had a capacity of touch screen where you would be able to choose what you wanted to play and you could pull it from itunes or or if you had a CD player connected to something or if you had like another music source and you could direct it to whatever speaker you want. So that's the idea is just. It's a really easy really high quality wireless speaker our system so it's a home pot. Yeah but but but it better in my opinion and You know Has a lot more connective options and came out like more than a decade in advance have spotify built-in to display. Yes what does he does. Yes so it will work with any of those during music services so their they are apt works with title or Google play works with Amazon at works with spotify works with I tunes works with Apple Music. You can connect it to a Nas- if you have your own local media you can If you if you had certain accessories you can connect like You know a record player to it and and and then pump that music's issue a different speaker so if you had a record player in one room but it's connected to an edge to connect damp that could then be played out of something that's upstairs assuming you know you've got the turntable along Basically any audio source you once you can find a way to for it to kind of work so it doesn't have any on the speakers themselves that are just speakers But they also have a sound bar they have something called the play bar and then they had the play Bass and those are both Options where you can have it connected to your TV and B uses a sound bar but it can also be used as part of your bigger system so if you have some of the the spoon. It's kind of like bookshelf speakers. Those are in your room and could be used for like regularly listening to music but then when you're using your play Bar Like your surround. Sound when you're watching. TV those become like rear speakers or speakers. Okay so but this is I understand. It is expensive for engineering perspective to continue supporting according older products. But these are things that were sold at deep discounts as much as a few a few months ago. I mean I've seen all kinds of people people talk on twitter. They just bought. The things are deprecated yeah. I don't. I don't do SONA suspense. I don't know if Sonos has been selling them to be clear if someone is going to go out in invest like these are very expensive items. Yeah it just I. I don't think there's a really strong engineering case that if you're you're talking about out basically a sperm wired into the system disagree I disagree. Well let me let me place my my concerns and tell me if I'm wrong but it seems to to me so they're saying you can get off the system we can refuse all updates and it's GonNa break everything it's going to break everything through the whole system for your whole house. It won't break everything it will leave all the systems on on in in your collection on that version of the software they were able to update to newer features so they added like airplay to support. If there was another wireless standard you could. They wouldn't run so if you have something newer it's going to be. It's going to stay well right now. It's going GonNa stay on the old version and they're working on his way to say okay. You can update the firmware and the software on the newer devices. But keep the older ones where they are. You're working on communicate like could have an old speaker in my retro room and then a new speaker my kitchen in path. Okay well if they'll do do that. That seems like a reasonable have stop. I thought they were because it's not like spotify. Most of that work is on the backup. D- right in this is the the problem right. This is actually the issue like this is what people don't understand. Yes these are speakers but these speakers also have microcontrollers and they have firmware. And they have you know they've been coded to to be able to play back things in certain Codex and have certain stuff and over time especially when you're looking at the really old things the only one that I can see getting annoyed with is if you you've got One of the play fives that that isn't the one that's been sold since two thousand fifteen so if you bought one and say like twenty fourteen and the play five is is expensive. It's like five hundred dollars on. It might have been more when people bought it that I can understand being annoyed with but some of these other things that the connect damp is really popular. People buying them because they discontinued it but and they released a newer thing. That's even more expensive but the thing is is that you know some of these. Some of these products haven't been sold in many years Some of them were for sale. You know a couple of years ago or maybe under a year ago and and I can understand the frustration Chretien if you bought one of those older devices but the thing is that yes. It's a speaker but it has you know the Bluetooth and it has the wireless ships and it. Has You know a way to update firmware. And if it was something that was built like you know more than a decade ago that amount of memory is really limited in the amount of things that can be updated to it are going to be limited so you as a software hardware company are trying to update you know things and add in you know okay. We want to support this new type of Kodak Awkward. There's a new version of Bluetooth and we want to add feature for to support. You know this airplay shooting which they did do in. Did you know. Support the older devices. That's gonna I I think. Probably they're probably at a point. Where the computer part of these speakers just is too old maybe the wireless components the radio components are? I'm just too old to be consistently updated like this. This is the way I'm reading that I understand the frustration being like oh I have speakers that are twenty years old. That will still work. Well yes but those are those speaker. Exactly that's analog this. This has always had a piece of technology in IT. They actually had A. This is the second time they've done something like this. They had a controller caller. That hadn't been sold since I think two thousand eight. They stopped updating last year and people freaked out and and this was a controller. That literally hadn't been sold in over a decade that was you know as been supplanted in May better in every way people's phones and the reason they couldn't update it was because they built built using adobe flash and the engineering work they'll be involved to continue to update those things especially as all the spotify doesn't have an API flashing where they don't have an important like the cuts. Those things used exactly what the controller used doesn't exist anymore they. I had to stop updating that. I think I'm I understand the outrage. I personally think this is okay I understand expensive although I think this kind of part of it the one thing I will say what they've said and if they keep this I think it's alright is. They've said that they will basically say these devices will continue to work and and they still like five years. What they're basically saying is there might come a day where these speakers won't be able to connect to the other speakers in your Sonos anymore and you might not be able to send things to it? that is obviously a concern to me. What's also a concern would be okay if Sonos goes out of business like what do you do then right like then if swatter fires and other service changes there in point or if there's you know a official needs to phone home for something then you're really screwed but I I would rather like I I understand the outrage? I also think that it's overblown because I think that they're doing a lot more than most other companies who are doing this type of thing would do I mean i. I can't think of I can't think of any other tech product that was released in two thousand thousand six that has continued to receive support but from software updates since two thousand six. I honestly

Using Your Sonos Speakers in 'Stereo Mix'
"Hello Jim Leo LaPorte. The Tech Guy. Good Morning Leo's thanks for having me. Thanks for COM. I'm a I'm a bit of a Luddite and leftover from the olden days of Great Stereo audio and I have discovered the sonos amplifier wire which I have hooked up to a couple of clips speakers and it sounds great. I've got my multimedia setup all tied up which includes a turntable by the away nice. Well you know one of the reasons you use a Sonos. Instead of say an ice Macintosh too damp is because the Sonos is Internet connected. And so you can control it with your phone. And you can stream audio from a variety of music and other kinds of streaming services. So it's virtually anything ever recorded. It's kind of cool. I'm a huge Sonos Fan. I From years ago I have an ungodly amount of sonar equipment and you're smart to put on the clips because as a really great classic speakers. Yes they are. Yeah Yeah. Plus they're headquartered in Indianapolis Indiana on. I'm kind of a halfway hoosiers so jim this is clipped. I guess they're still around are they. I mean I remember the old days of the giant wooden enclosed. Cliffdale make they still make all that stuff they do. We're going to pay dearly for it. I'd love a pair of base. Yeah you could you get the Low scholars and stuff like that but But they also do now the kind of more modern US be or New Bluetooth speakers and they do all that but the ones I have. uh-huh are just hardwired so very nice. Yeah that's a that's A. That's a nice combination. Yeah so here's my dilemma. I was watching a movie the the other day and it's and on the credits. It said Stereo mix by and they went. Oh No it's GonNa hire a guy to do a stereo mix mix all you surround. Sound is partaken over the next thing. I know you're you'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA cut. You can cut me out. Somebody ready for doing a stereo. Mix Stereo Mix. That's fantastic so I kind of I think this is a good thing. So you're right most movies now now and are mixed in five point one or seven point one they're in dolby encoded And that's because people with fancy homes theaters might have all of those and speakers. You know six seven eight speakers but most people don't and often I get one of the calls I get a lot is. I can't understand dialogue in a movie because when it's mixed that way the assumption is you have a center channel dedicated to dialogue a speaker just for voice. And when it's done that way and you do you have the proper speakers you can understand the dialogue but when you mix that whole thing down to just one or two speakers often the music the sound effects are so much louder the dialogue. You can't make out what anybody's saying so I think this is a response to that effect. I think this is something new. Not Something Oh yeah I don't think this is is a A A T beginning of the end for old stereo mixes. I think this is something that they have actually do it. I think for for a while. There was this brief period of time where everything was five one and it wasn't a good thing for people who didn't have all those speakers so I hope I hope this is a trend in the positive direction right now. You know we have a lot of listeners in Hollywood so if you're in Hollywood and you're making movies or making TV shows be aware of this. Not Everybody has that fancy Dan Dan System. You've got in your house or your studio remixing area or Edit Bay. Most people don't have multiple speakers so give us an ice Hicks there. There was a time when when Stereo in movie theater was actually cre- channel on the right time ago center channel left. Uh right for a long time. I had this argument got Wilkinson because I only had two speakers and I love that too. Nice bike you too nice speakers on my TV. And I loved it but it did get harder and harder to hear dialogue dialogue and other things were going on. Now you know Scott says well you need the upward firing at most speakers to. I don't want that so in a way. Let's say thank you considering and keeping in mind Stereo
Google Stadia: All Details You Need To Know
"Kind of dropped a whole bunch, more information on just before three starts, or stadia, the streaming service that we originally knew as product stream and his grown into this, this own monster its own creature that's going to be delivering video games to us. Sometime this all? And so we got a bunch of information, so we wanted to go ahead and talk about it. I'm joined fi- gaming editor Jennifer lock. I think is actually sexually your first time on the central. Yeah. I've never been on it for so, well, this is going to be a lot of fun. No pressure anything. It's a lot of pressure. And also joining us again to talk about stadia again is actually Carly lachey from all of our sites. Yes. Hi. So we got a ton of information today. I figured we were kinda dive right in and see what parts. We liked and didn't like in what we still don't know about yet to, to kinda sort this out. I guess the I guess, maybe the most important thing is the price seemed to be like the big thing that people weren't super sure about, like they had seen some of the details about the streaming service, but they like seemed like the biggest question was how much is this gonna cost me? Yes, actually, because it's supposed to be like a kind of free for all platform, ten dollars fair. I think but I wouldn't buy game separately, if I'm also paying ten dollars a month. I don't want to pay more for a game. Yes. So, so the pricing details are, are a little on the confusing side, their stadia pro which is the big thing that they're pushing today for peop. To preorder starting starting right now. And it's it's ten dollars a month, and you get access to a couple of free games when when you start off. You just get access to the one free game, which we'll talk about a little later and then there's going to be more added as part of that subscription. But then you can also buy games kind of Allah cart. Whatever game you're excited about we don't know what the prices of those games individually are. But you can buy those games and all of those games are playable. If you have the right internet connection at four K six firms per second on a ton of different things. We originally thinking this was just going to be on the chrome cast ultra start. But it turns out that it's going to be the chrome cast ultra, it's going to be just about anything with chrome web, browser and the pixel three and perhaps more surprising, the pixel three the kind of ultra cheap pixel, that was just released at Google. Yo is also going to support at launch with more. Phones kind of expected later, and there's also something to note that I think with stadia pro this grip shin you get like some free games in some discounted games. They mentioned exclusive discounts on some games later, but didn't really break down, what that was. I mean that could be pretty cool. I soon as similar to what a PlayStation, plus does currently. Yes, so similar to similar setup there, where you can get kind of some some discounts on games at probably older games where the discount isn't going to be quite as big as the although I guess, probably to start off. They're going to they're going to try and get people excited about a couple of games. But separate from stadia pro is something that will be available. Later will not be available at launch in November. Is stadium base and stadium base is just the ability to purchase a game play stream it from from anywhere. And that there's no there's no monthly service included in that. But you are only limited you're limited to ten eighty p streaming as thank with the parole plan. You get like surround sound or something, which you don't get with the base. Yes. Five months around sound, five point once around somewhere. Whereas you get a stereo audio with the with stadium base, so the stadium basis something where if you wanna pick up a game you can play anywhere. But if you want the best possible experience, the they're gonna charge, you this ten bucks a month. And it's ten bucks a month in the US twelve bucks a month in Canada. But it's supposed to be the kind of the equivalent of tenuous dollars in fourteen different countries when it launches yet, I think it's interesting to have the base launch a lot like sometime in twenty twenty and a lot later actual date. Yeah. It's, it's obviously like their tests. They're doing a sort of rollout launch something more gradual. I think like the fourteen countries is also just a way to like really tests like all the latency stuff in the actual product before they really go wide because while while it's available in fourteen countries in the US is one of those countries you can't play in Guam, or Hawaii, which is they're just like internet connections in those places are just not great. So trying to guarantee any kind of quality in those places is a real challenge, regardless of what you know, hardware. You've got. Yeah. Plus, there's no there's nothing so far for any Asian countries either right? Yeah. So there's, there's a lot of limitations for, for where, but but, you know, fourteen countries seems like a stronger role out that I think I was initially expecting a the, the original test for project stream was was located just in the US. You couldn't do it outside. Of the US at all. So it's cool that they are at least aware that they're global audience wants to do this as well. That it's not just a US product launch which is something kind of struggles with a lot of times, you know, releasing things in the US first, and then, and then maybe getting to Canada and the UK, you know, six months, or a year later, I would have hoped they would have tested that out during products dream for a worldwide launch because they kind of sold it as this global thing, where they have all their servers, everywhere. But it's just like or teen countries launch. Yes, I mean, a big part of the, the launch of the Carleen, I went to GD see they, they were talking about how it's basically proximity to Google data centers. Right. So like the countries that they listed these are all countries were Google data centers exist, which means that stadia servers, can exist and likely already do exist in those places. So being able to do that kind of local compression, streaming stuff in country. I suspect a lot easier than than, you know, the product stream, thing was just US focused and just, you know, chrome based so that it could happen in the US servers. So they're testing. I totally get that. I just think some people will be confused because when it was first now, the Google stadia. They really sold it as like, hey, anywhere in the world want to play though. That was a big thing that Carly, I noted when they did the original announcement was that the hype level was just through the roof, right? It was just it was just this, you know, you're going to be able to play anything anywhere, and it's going to change what gaming. And, and so this is this announcement. What they're calling stadia connect with. They're gonna do apparently multiple of throughout the year as these kind of streamed announcements is that kind of coming back down to reality yet. I think it's interesting that they're doing it that way. It's the way that Nintendo's kind of been doing it for a while now. And the institute, working well for them out, Google staling in have to imagine other people will follow, especially now that, like, like presenting everything. Ether is in the thing anymore, right? Yeah. I mean that's. Shown up just XBox, just just Microsoft micro. You walk in. And there's just a giant Microsoft booth all its embassy want. Yeah, it's just Microsoft and Bethesda side by side in the hall. It's everything's great. So there's a to, to get setup. Actually, I missed this as part of the youth. There's a founder package to sign up available starting today, and they made it very clear that there's only a limited number of these refuse to tell anybody, what that number is I suspect that it's, it's gonna run for a couple of weeks and then and then just not available anymore. There's a unique color to the stadium controller which originally was was shown off in three colors, black white. And this kind of limi- Minty green with a savvy called with Sabi, which I eight that color, you said, you preordered I will say, I did, and I've held each one of these controllers in my hand and I really liked that color in hand. It's not it doesn't look super great pictures, but I really liked it when I was holding it, so that I it might just be that the just like, the, the highlighter yellow accents, under the controllers really got me. I don't know what it is. But this did not look that great TIMMY, now. And. I get that. Yeah. So there's, there's also a dark blue controller that's going to be a part of this limited edition, which also looks very nice has armed accents on it, which is similar to the orange accents that are on some of the other controllers, but the, the dark blue kind of offsets a nice way and it's apparently only going to have this, this color available for, for this launch crew, you get the controller which is normally seventy bucks and the chrome cast ultra which is also normally seventy bucks three months of stadia for you three months of stadium for a friend. Which is so nice to give someone access to stadium, but not have a controller for them. Just kind of a separate thing, and then. Access to early registration for your username on stadia, which is obviously super important for your future as a prolific game. Streamer. Absolutely. And, and then early access to, to one of the you know the the one game that you're gonna get at launch something like just the hardware. The, the kid itself is one hundred twenty nine dollars, which in and of itself is cheaper than buying the controller on the chrome cast Alterra separately. Plus, you get the, the three months of pro so that's thirty bucks, right there. Yeah. You get three months on top of that. And then three months that you can gift to someone else that they have made it clear, what, the, the gifting price is going to be I assume it also just be the ten bucks a month. I liked that. They're starting out with a gifting idea because I you know, I have family members that I would probably gift stadia to, you know, but, but, you know, even if it's not something that I end up playing myself, so. So for them to start off with a gifting concept, is something that I like, especially given Jen, and my recent frustration with trying to gift things through the PlayStation store and how just it just doesn't exist anymore. It's also a good kind of marketing tactic like as a way for people to kind of spread the word about stadium and have people, maybe try it for free. And then the ice whom they hope that allow these people who have the buddy pass will purchase stuff of their own or get a buddy pass for somebody else, or something like that

Hi have been riding around in some trick up cars this week offering everything from a virtual reality ride throughout her space in the back seat to a visual smorgasbord of comic books movies and surround sound in the backseat bow their concepts, and you probably will never see anything like them on the roads. The idea is to show people what's possible in I to tell you all about him here. On today's episode of talking tech. I'm Jefferson Graham with USA day. Let's begin with the Batman car in the concept being touted at CIs by Intel the company best known for making computer chips in putting on those elaborate drone shows now in a gist. You step into the back seat of what will be one day and a Thomas driving car buckle up. And then you get a choice of entertainment experiences wanna visual comic book to play on the screen with sound. Well, that's one possibility or how about a movie trailer that comes complete with a button to buy tickets to the film on the remote. Or even better the entire film itself. That's what I picked up in my demo here. It was cool become on when might we actually see something like this. The Intel rep told me it was at least a decade away. Maybe sooner who knows? And that's better than the experience. I had with Disney and the virtual reality ride around a race track in a real car with a concept game because the company freely admits it's never coming out. I met Disney at the speed Vegas race track on the outskirts of town hopped in Saudi Tron car, which is a new model. Don, the Oculus rift virtual reality headset picked up a remote to play along. With in off the driver went around the track. Meanwhile, my brain's zoned into another dimension as a game based on the vendors movie. Played allowing me to visit other planets and get involved in some pretty fun shoot ups. Great. I could imagine the thrills kids will have in. The backseat. No longer will. They say are we there yet? Instead, the last mom and dad to keep driving because they came just as a little bit longer to go. But yet it was a concept something Disney would like to see begin showing up in cars one day. Meanwhile, may add that BMW gave a demo of a riderless motorcycle here at C S as well. It worked it was thrilling, and it was so so weird check out my Twitter and Facebook feed to see footage of this thing.

Samsung, Bixby and Million Years discussed on Daily Tech News Show
"Right. Let's get into these Samsung announcements because they announced, I think nothing that was surprising, but a lot of stuff. So let's start with the Samsung galaxy note nine and it's four thousand Miller amp hour battery and the back bends in acrobatic. Samsung went through to say, look, we brought you l. in this is a very safe battery not going to explode. We they didn't say not going to explode. We promise because then it would explode probably. But they everything short of that. They said, and this battery is going to last you all day with heavy use. Probably last more than a day, maybe a day and a half or two. If you use it lightly. That seems to be the takeaway as everybody's like, yeah, it's it's basically better specs than every other phone out there because it's bigger and has a bigger battery, but it's not necessarily a new design and there's nothing unusual about it. It's a six point, four inch, super amyloid, desperately twenty-five sixty by fourteen forty. They did. Did not put the fingerprint sensor under the screen. It's fingerprint sensor on the backs, a little better position that was on the note eight. But otherwise it's the same one USB headphone Jack Dobie outmost threes surround sound still has the Bixby key on the right and either an x ninety eight, ten or Snapdragon eight forty, five processor inside. There's an t e one point. Two gigabit per second. Cat eighteen modem in there a dedicated machine learning chip. So the phone itself, I don't know. I mean real quickly. You guys did do either of you disagree with me that it's like it's just a bigger better version of the note. It's it's slightly bigger and slightly thicker, but just slightly otherwise. I mean, it's kinda like the no dude. The the fact that it's thicker is is kind of interesting to me because I feel like in our very mature smartphone world, we are now finding their just certain people at a. We have just the the paths have forked between Android nyah west to a point where I don't even think that really you can. I mean, sure. Everyone's gonna find a reason to argue about the specs on either one, but we have now laid so much track behind us of where we like. You know why we like the phones that we liked and how that is interacting with the communities that now I'm more interested in like, oh, no, am I a gigantic phone battery battery lasts for a million years person? Or am I a smaller phone? Because it's a fashion accessory and something that I wanna use. I wanted. To look really cool
"surround sound" Discussed on This Is Only A Test
"That system right now with other speakers is bad so i'm curious what that looks like here so is this a replacement for sound bars for living rooms or some people's living rooms me albar to assemblers the living so many people using of an eye for their tv crtv out of our you're saying they keep those on the use as a stereos yeah because it's tied your apple tv late integration is one of the big selling points just like the air pod may not be the best sounding headphones but the its ability be a wireless and also it's it's highly highly integrated nature with i always devices makes it compelling is this air pod for your apple tv i mean you can't set up four these as a surround sound system with your apple tv that would be cool catch it you can't do multiple and only can afford to handle like five point one audio that would be great rabah numbers on 511 really either while they armor simulate that mostly 2point well yeah but you could actually had dedicated discreet speakers this way yes he most which most people don't get the convenience of like we're not were asked aaron and they're stein a hallmark of for this of like copper wire through walls and getting seven channels in in your living room but they had to get massmarket has kind of be wireless yet an overwhelming and i him either view heard the sonos will add or when it's called the base station or whatever which a lot of people rave about in my world this honest one yeah though when they like literally your tv sits on now in its oil alvaro space station meant to produce sets out i mean it be really interesting to compared those two against each other yet.
