Black Friday 2020 Sales Reports

"In store sales on black friday where fifty two percent lower than a year ago. That should not surprise anyone online. Sales were up big also not surprise. This actually did surprise me a little bit. Though jason online sales on friday in the united states made it the second biggest day ever for online sales cyber monday last year is the biggest all time black friday this year second-placed that might get bumped down to third place after this year cyber monday. But what did you think of the reports of black friday. Yeah i mean. I think you hit on something there in to today cyber monday. I think you're right. No surprise almond spending on black. Friday grew twenty one point six percent. That was a new record. It was around nine billion dollars worth of purchases that were recorded in the forecast for today for cyber monday this year. It's slated it's it's it's slated to become the largest digital sales day ever spending is forecast to reach somewhere between ten point. Eight billion in twelve point seven billion dollars that would represent growth of fifteen to thirty five percent from last year. You no surprise really there. I think to me what really stood out and again not surprising but still stood out. Because it's just pretty darn impressive was shop by shop by his stock obviously a lot of our listeners. A lot of our members and subscribers are all very familiar with in. It's been a good year for shoplifting. Is stock up around one hundred and seventy five percent. The numbers that day chalked up for black friday really impressive two point. Four billion dollars in black friday sales that was about seventy five percent growth from last year so clearly the investments. They've been making in business all along the way or paying off. And i think the thing the thing there is because we can sit there and criticize shop five for example oh it's overvalued or you know it doesn't make a lot of sense because the business doesn't make that much money yet that that may be true but these are the type of these types of numbers that will i think afford some time i think as long as they continue to record these types of numbers the market is going to continue giving it Some wiggle room there. We've seen it with amazon. We've seen it certainly with wayfair. I think i don't think it'll be different but there were some interesting numbers. There within shop of is report that i think are just worth noting average black friday cart price. Globally was just under ninety one dollars. That was up eleven percent from a year ago so people spent a little bit more in need thing here in this mobile world. We always talk about how mobile is really leading. Four mobile sales on black friday this year. If you look at the breakdown between mobile sales and desktop it was sixty seven percent mobile versus thirty three percent desktop in last year that was sixty nine percent mobile and thirty one percent desktop so the differences is marginal but it seems worse shopping on desktop this year for obvious reasons and so the data i think but yeah it all goes back towards this digital economy that we're witnessing in it. It's it's seems like it has a lot of traction. I don't know that we're necessarily going to be going back anytime soon. I'm glad you mentioned shop five because we have talked a lot about the big retailers like walmart and target in particular the investments that they have made this year for curbside pickup for delivery all of that but worth as you said pointing out the investments shop by his made and this is a stock that i do not own i. I understand both sides of it. It is definitely on my watch. List having pulled the trigger yet. But but i understand the concerns. I understand the around valuation the lack of profitability. And maybe that's why we've seen the rise that we've seen for target and walmart this year because those are just fundamentally. I think a little easier for people to wrap their heads around. But as you said. I mean what what is the future going to be. Is it going. is it going to be well. Wants to all this is behind us. We're just to start going back to the mall now. I don't think so it's going to be more online shopping and to your point more mobile shopping. I think you are. I think you're right there. I just continued to be impressed with wayfair for example the mobile mobile numbers that they continue to record are really impressive. And that's that's furniture. Man i mean like people are shopping for furniture on their phones in regard to shop applied. I think when you when you look at the future. I don't think it's going to be one or the other. I think we've talked about this before really when we talk about target and walmart i mean it really is becoming about omni channel right. It's just meeting. The consumer wherever the consumer wants to be met in the more that companies the more that retailers are able to do this They're going to be able to take advantage of the digital economy. They're going to be able to take advantage of people wanting to actually physically go to stores In so i. I think the future is going to be a little bit of both but certainly shop. A fi is keying in on their specialty. In and i think more growth is going to be coming in. Obviously bad digital space shop is is absolutely one of the companies dictating the development of that space so even even next year. When i think it's probably safe to assume that that we get a little bit more back to normal in and the the the in person shopping experiences a little bit less risky. We'll see people wanting to get out. We'll see people wanting to go to stores and have fun with that experience But but that that. I don't think it's going to really Deter people from shopping online. I mean hopefully. I think ultimately what i'd love to see just this whole black friday cyber monday thing. I really like the fact that we're stretching and just this whole month so it's not really about fewer sales. It's just about timing right. We're just stretching over the course of a month as opposed to really isolating on on individual days. I liked to see that. Continue to wear these concepts. These retailers are not just leveraged to a couple of particular days toward the end of the year. Just real quick before we move onto our next story on that point. Are you seeing this in your own personal life. Because i have in. The last week noticed that the promotional emails i get from different retailers are basically saying. Hey our black. Friday sale is gonna last for the next ten days. It's like the subject line in the email is black friday sale. And then you look. It's like oh this is actually going through december ninth. Yeah i feel like. I've seen a lot of that just anecdotally. I do feel like. I've seen a lot more of that. I think that's that's the right thing to do again. It's just it's a bit of a different time but hopefully as we've seen throughout this whole year this year has been an accelerator for change and a lot of good ways. And maybe this'll be one more thing one more change that will witness over the course of the coming years in the i think ultimately they'll be a

Mobile labs target "testing deserts" where COVID-19 can spread undetected

"Some communities in the U. S have less access to Corona virus testing these days, allowing the virus to spread undetected. CBS's Mark Strassmann says mobile testing labs are trying to change that. I blame you head back just a tad. There you go. Lisa Wright wanted a covert test. Without this mobile testing lab, The 70 year old retired nurse would have to drive an hour to get one. I want to know whether you know, have it or not. Set your mind at ease. Yes, roughly 13,000 People live in Sumpter County, the poorest pocket of Alabama they learn to do without. But Marcus Campbell, a county commissioner here drew the line at covert testing. We were a test in desert and people would always acts when they heard about testing going on and other areas. Why not in Sumpter County? According to research by Johns Hopkins Communities of Color often have less access to covert testing. In Alabama Majority Black counties tend to have fewer tests available. The majority white counties There were similar trends in Oregon, Delaware, New Mexico and South Dakota in predominantly Hispanic and indigenous American counties. All those two causes and it was heartbreaking to me. We buried two family members on the same day. Did it motivate you to get tested to folks who need it? Absolutely. Campbell coordinated with Watley Health Services to set up drive through testing in West Alabama. Since March, more than 4000 people have been tested. 10% tested positive. It is reward to know that they can get it done. I'm sure you continue to wear your mask. These mobile labs test 2 to 3 times a week in west Alabama Testing desert no more.

PUBG Mobile Announcing a $14M Esports Program for 2021

"So let me bring this up here. this is. This is from the sports network Dot com the headline is pudgy. Mobile announces fourteen million dollar east sports program in twenty twenty one The article goes on to say that They've announced their pudgy mobile global championships. The newest program boasts a grand prize pool of fourteen million making it the biggest competitive series run in mobile s sports history. This is a huge price pool for mobile. I will say Something we've never seen before. The article goes on to give some details into sort of the structure and things like that but Just to give you a sense Mobile east sports According to newzoo has Has generated nine hundred fifty million dollars. Globally So you know this is one of these things where Pudgy mobile is taking a leadership role in the mobile e sports space william first of all. Are you guys involved there at all and second of all like what do you make of the now. We're starting to see moberly. Sports price pools rival call. It traditionally sports prize pools. Yeah well first of all. I just wanna put that figure in context right because we are stunned that you know the doda invitational gets above thirty million in pricing. Right like absolutely stunned right. So that is. I think arguably you know everybody looks at doda and says well. That's the pinnacle of e sports right in terms of your payday rates and terms of price. Paul this is basically half of that right so if you were going to rank each sports payouts i believe this puts them as number four overall for potential payout structure like in terms of highest pricing. Ever so it's huge like an for a mobile game again. This isn't for like you know. Bread and butter. Pc's for settle for mobile. This is just. I mean it's so significant and i think it highlights what i am coming around to which i think is maybe difficult for you to swallow paul. But it's that mobile is so accessible and it's so ubiquitous the audience about there's just such a built in audience there and for many people in many countries right. The phone is the primary gaming device and those consumers want e sports just as badly in one competition just as badly and so the reality is it is a big white space for games to lean into and i i think pudgy mobile. It's a little bit you know. I almost ironic in my. Because i wrote in my book about how i felt like pub. G missed opportunity right like they didn't defend well against port night. They made poor decisions as a result. They kind of seated that traditional market. But this is a really strong example of that brand reinventing itself to a leadership position and actually. It's kinda funny if you look at where fortnight is today and you look at where pub. Jesus today fortnight is struggling because of its absence in multiple rights for night is booming. It really underscores that the critical value of being on a you know three by six inch pizza piece of computing hardware in people's pockets. Right and so. I have to even say this is one where i'm putting my money where my mouth is right like i've you know. Oxygen east sports has announced. I think we were in the east sports observer this week for we signed a former fanatic player out of india for pudgy mobile You know to to help us. You know look at that ecosystem and do more there and you know i think it's part of a bigger belief in oxygen that mobile has potential. But it's also part of. I think a bigger global wakeling which i'm being a part of which is like mobile is is happening in east sports weather. You know we can be hardcore keyboard and mouse. Snow aim assist. All we want but the reality is it's a really important way people game today and it deserves

Looking for a phone for the holidays? Here are your best bets

"You're looking for a smartphone for yourself or a loved one this holiday. The choices can get overwhelming. Fortunately we've got some answers. Roger chang and this is your daily charge with me phone expert than law created holiday gift guide funds. Welcome lynn hierachy. I'm happy to be here. So you've a rundown of the best smartphone options out there but before we get into specific suggestions. Any general advice on what we should think about when we're syrian new phone. Yeah every time you know before you buy. New phone is important to think about how you use your last phone. Did you play a lot of games and watch videos if so you probably want a phone with a big screen and a battery a big battery and or did you take a lot of photos and capture a lot of videos than you probably want something with a great camera so you really want to think about how you use your phone and make sure that the phone works for you and your needs instead of just getting the latest greatest. You don't wanna pay for features you don't need features that you may or may not need i talk about five g a lot on this show But senior the expert. I wanted to get your read on this law. Is it something you really need. When considering which funded by there is a premium for five devices. So is it really worth. It is rolling out in more areas throughout this year. But i know like some carriers. I believe t mobile. They offer five g coverage under its unlimited plan anyway. So it's understandable if you're eyeing a five g device and that's your next phone in that situation but i'm not a hundred percent convinced a five g iphone is something you absolutely need this year especially when so many people are working from home anyway and especially if you don't have good five three coverage in your area so you should definitely check that before you make a decision and you know coverage maps from carriers. They don't really tell the whole story so you you wanna make sure you do a lot of research and phones. Five g. phones are getting cheaper and cheaper. So i may hold out just a bit longer gutted. It feels like the most part people are committed to the platforms. They've chosen if you're an iphone user. You're likely buying a new iphone. Twelve financial user. You have more choices. But a- likely to stick with another android phone other instances where you would consider switching. Generally that is true It people do tend to kind of stick with the same ecosystems. But i think it's easier to switch platforms easier more now than now more than ever especially compared to years past I think about some certain situations that would motivate motivate someone switch and i think peripheral accessories are especially good reason of the airpods pro. They do work with android phones to an extent but their functionality and their features work so much better with an iphone and you basically kind of even iphone to use an apple watch for its to its full potential so i could see android user. Who is really attracted to those accessories switch for that. I think for an iphone to android people do want the customization. I know iowa's fourteen gives you more and options but it just doesn't compare to what you can play around with on an android phone. It's a lot more fun if you have the time for it. So let's get into it. Let's talk about specific phones. What are some of your top picks for this holiday season again. It really depends on who you are and what your needs are but for an iphone. I do like the iphone mini because of its size. I have small hands. So it's very attracted to me and like the iphone se because it's a because of its low price and for android phones. The galaxy s twenty f e is really affordable. Pick for the galaxy line. And i liked the oneplus eight because it's premium but it's competitively priced so let's dig into some of those phones the the galaxy s twenty f e which. I know we made fun of alive for the name. Initially fan edition actually ended up being pretty decent About what you get with it and why you know. That's that's a pretty decent deal. Among other phones out there. Well one is that it has five g and it has a great performance. And the although you know. The camera isn't as good as the s. twenty. Ultra the note. Twenty ultra It's a good price. I think it starts about seven hundred dollars and it's so much cheaper than some of the premium galaxy phones out there so it's something if you want that galaxy samsung the samsung galaxy experience. But you don't want to spend way too much. I think that is a good alternative. Also you can look into samsung's galaxy a series lineup phones. Like the eighth fifty one i think is one of the more recent ones those also kind of offer that that software experience a galaxy experience without a premium of a high price so beyond some of these head like his. You know you talked about samsung. Which is a well-known Are there any other handsome. Makers that are a bit more under the radar that offer phones. Maybe deserve a second. Look yeah. I don't. I don't have any official releases or deals specifically that i can say i always think. Motorola is such a great company for mid range affordable phones and throughout the holiday season. There moto phones do get a discounted and there are some carrier promotions to it. I would say keep an eye on those things especially if you don't want to spend a thousand dollars on a phone if you're looking for something it starts like two hundred dollars. An up. motorola makes a really solid aggressively priced phones. That if you don't really need all the premium features so if you just kind of use your phone to make calls the moti. Seven power is a good mid range phone with a big battery so you don't have to charge it and that would be a great pick for someone who's a little bit more straightforward with their needs at. Don't need a lot or grammy. It's black friday today. So i'm sure there are plenty of deals to go around beyond the motorola brand new. You mentioned one plus and that's another company. That is a little bit under the radar. It's not a household name tug a little bit about that in some of the options there. Yeah we're plus is definitely. They started out as an android enthusiasts brand. They've branched out in there a little bit more popular. Now you're right. They're not as popular will known as google and samsung. Their current flagship line is the eight. It's oneplus eight pro. Act it's a lot of phones year. They released like four And so that's kind of their higher end line. They just released their oneplus. Nord en ten. Five g That will be available in north america at a later date and that has five g And it's about. I think it's going to be about four hundred dollars. Give or take so that is something that you know. They've consistently released premium phones with great hardware at affordable pricing used to be more affordable from years past. Not so much anymore but it still. You know hundreds of dollars cheaper than samsung galaxy funds beyond one plus and samsung another company that surprisingly flies under the radar is google right. It's it's a big name company but the pixel phones. Have not exactly been blockbuster devices. I believe one of the pixel phone is on your list. You talk about which phone that google makes people should be looking at. Yeah so. I think you're talking about pick so four eight five g. I've consistently recommended that phone since its release i like it. Because it is more affordable than the five the pixel five which is its main flagship. But you get a lot of the same features it still has. It has the same camera as a five. So it has great. Low like Low light photos and it has a soffer support from google. And it's also has five g which is what differentiates it from the pig soul for a that was Also released so that would be all the pixel phones that were released this year. I do like the four eighty five g the most just because it's cheaper than the five but has many of the same features so most of those flagship phones we're talking about the pixel five twelve. They're they're eight hundred dollars closer to one thousand dollars. If you're looking to spend that much like you. Does anyone actually need to spend a thousand dollars on a new phone. I mean you can definitely spend that much if you want you know phones. That cost that much are usually faster. They have longer less batteries and have great cameras. But i feel like this year compared to last compared to yours past. We've seen so many great phones that are priced below thousand dollars. You could find something great for four hundred dollars to six hundred dollars. I do think. Fund companies were reactive to the spending behavior of twenty twenty and how people for being a little bit more cost conscious and they and they Reacted to that. With a appropriately priced phones. That have been way more aggressive but still have premium teachers. And what if you're shopping for kids or parents amid this may be the same line of conversation. But you know for for folks who don't necessarily need all those layers in bells and whistles of. Are there any other phones that you suggest for them. That may be even a step down from some of the ones you talked about earlier definitely as it again. A motorola makes a lot of inexpensive phone so i would look towards their e line of funds the moto e six i believe is you know starts at one hundred dollars and that's something that you can get unlocked By the way if you are giving phone as a gift. I do recommend buying an unlocked. Phone it's probably the quickest and easiest way to go about it since you just have to swap existing some card and you're ready to go so that would kind of with that line of phones. The moti line would definitely be something. I would look out for this. Holiday season is a phone. Even a gift anymore is that is that too personal of a device for you to go out and actually get for someone. I sure why not. I totally don't disagree with receiving a phone as a gift. I think it's perfectly as long as you go about it the right way. Make sure that's what they're it matches the needs that they want and And you look very closely at all the fine print in terms of carrier contracts and stuff like that. I think it would be a great gift.

I listened to your show every week for the first time. I've been nervous to go on a podcast public speaking in a while. Because i'm just so happy to be herbs so excited to be the first guest talking about cryptocurrency on the animal spirits. Podcast i think is a longtime Well thank you for saying that. We are excited as well. We actually started this pocket. And i were just talking about this in november twenty seventeen so right into the teeth of bitcoin mania and we'll get into two point out. I don't think it's quite the say manic fever that we saw in december twenty seventeen. But why don't we just start off briefly for those who don't know anything about you. Give us a quick introduction. Who are you zach. The founder and ceo blocked by. I grew up in texas. I was always kind of an entrepreneurial slash math in finance minded kid. I guess i actually put myself through college as a semi professional online poker player so unlike a lot of folks are generation unfortunate to not be carrying a big amount of college debt. I always wanted to work in the financial services industry. But i finished school in may of two thousand nine so i ended up working in an advertising technology startup that was ultimately a really successful venture. We got acquired by google. I spend a little bit of time at google but learned that. I really enjoyed building things and being at smaller companies left google to start another ad tech business that got acquired and then more recently and most relevant for blocked by i was working in the fintech sector specifically the online lending side of fintech. So there was a big boom in that industry appear to peer lending online lending and alternative investing and i worked at one of the companies. That was the biggest aggregation of data provider of technology solutions to institutional investment firms that were participating in that asset class. When i was doing nat i became kind of like the fintech guy within my friend group and i started writing a blog which i don't think rather i just i didn't stay with it as well as the Clogs and built up a readership but writing. This blog is what led me to discover bitcoin for the first time back in twenty fourteen and one of the things that struck me about it initially was a lot of what happens in fintech is just a new front end on top of the traditional financial system. So you're doing something that banks already do but you're doing it with a mobile app with a much better user experience and it's faster and easier. You don't have to go onto a branch when i learned about big like. Wow this is something truly different. You've got a brand new asset built on top of payment network where i can move something around the world. Twenty four seven and it's not using any part of the traditional financial ecosystem. So i was screaming to no one on this blog and twenty fourteen. I think you should be taking a flyer on bitcoin. Maybe it goes to zero. But with a little bit of capital you should be investing in it and then from there kind of slowly and steadily went down. What people in the crypto currency industry referred to as the rabbit hole and ended up starting block five around the same time. You'll start started this podcasts. In the fall of two thousand seventeen to before we get into what blocked by does specifically. How do you explain bitcoin. Someone who thinks they know what it means or has no idea in is never really entered. This base of workers obviously digital ledger been well. I mean i think one of the actual biggest positives about bitcoin. The fact that the narrative seems to change so many times over the years. But how do you explain it to someone who doesn't really know what it is one of the things. I like to start with when i'm explaining bitcoin. People is the best analogy and kind of story. That i've ever heard demystified a little bit and the story is actually about the platypus. So back in the sixteen hundreds explorers from europe. We're going all around the world. They got australia. They found the platypus and they sent some specimens back to europe on the ship and the scientists back in europe rigidly thought. They were playing twisted joke on them. And they're like this animal can't be real. You stapled together a duck in beaver and you're telling us this thing lays eggs like there's no way this is a real animal. It took the scientific community about fifty years to actually accept. The planet was a real animal. Create a little part of the animal classification kingdom that incorporated the platypus. Another funky animals like it but the platypus was very real and the problem that bitcoin is had is kind of this platypus problem in the traditional financial services industry. Where is it. A currency is it. An asset is it. A commodity is security is at a payment network. Well it's not really any one of those things in a silo. It's a little bit of all those things and it's something completely new but it definitely exists and the reaction from votes whether it's jamie diamond or others who are now coming around to it but back in twenty seventeen. They were saying bitcoin fraud. It's a scam. It's only used by folks who are doing illegal activities. Those types of things come from a position of not actually understanding.

Interview With Imogen Callister

"Today i'm joined by. In calcutta aka k- the media coach after korea to spend journalism real estate operations and a position is branding and marketing specialist at rei imaging now ex with businesses and individuals to help build their brand online. Emmy can you. You can call me. Whatever you like. But miceli i get codeine. Welcome to the show. Thank thank you so much for having me. It's an on obviously debate here on your incredible podcast. Awesome for you to be. He and the media coach is relatively new venture for you. Yeah which you started in january. The she so tell us a bit about it. So look i guess my passion really stems by two ways. One my love of real estate but predominantly my background's journalism media and marketing and it's really blending. Those two worlds together and being an agent is a unique job sam. Every day they have to apply for a new job like imagine that world. It's not easy and you've constantly go to be out there prospecting for new clients and it's my job to help my clients build a personal brand that people want to connect with an also build world-class campaigns in social media marketing and digital online presence to really help them connect with more sellers out there in the marketplace. And it's hard to believe but a lot of people we pick up the fire in one hundred times a day. We make all these goals but you forget like our mobiles right in our hands and everybody fact checks everything now. In fact seventy percent of all sellers will look you up before making a decision on you as an agent so the media coverage was kind of founded on my true passion of helping agents and look like many people. It's been a challenge with covid. I've just had just the best journey. And i really. I'm sorry lucky. I get to wake up every day and leave my passion and my dream and help agents and with some of the top performers in the country. Now so i just feel like it's it's an absolute honor to really work in that position. I mean you've done raising job. So far and really covered as proven agents need to start acting like media companies themselves anyway. So it's great that they've got someone like you to help them along and i think covert is really sorta taught agents viva lesson in terms of you. Don't take back the narrative in the only thing that people here out there is the mainstream media which is obviously always the right. Listen and the thing is think the hardest part for agencies the first question is they say. I don't know what to post because everyone cares about what other people think. And that's human nature satellite. Go onto worried about pricing. I don't know what to post. And i don't know what to say in my purse. That builds brand attraction will makes the whole world of social media like a photo. I mean even though that's not really relevant now likes going on social media where like inist rally aware actually the only place in the world currently with no likes on facebook and instagram. Like if going to the states while that movements coming through so for an aging. It's really breaking down those barriers of understanding that innate to master paid and an own media strategy into their brand so an own media strategy is how they channels look facebook. Instagram linked in google business. What i call like. They pass active brands. They passive brandies lack. They google they look on google. What serves into that brand and making sure that spoiled class when people are typing and then they've got their active brand for their own channels. So that instagram you know. Everyone wants to be into famous. In fact he mcallister of locked you. You know that whole own media channel like may that content pressure now is that then for an agent you really need to look at. How do you create writing fans in your marketplace. Like it's been around for years these idea that other people generate leads into your business but it's gone blown up into the online world now a carry and how it's blowing up. He's all these online reviews and always online review platforms and it's breaking down that disruption for them so they know where to build reviews in brand it gets the more kind of licencees and the last thing i guess formulating strategy for agents now is a lot of people sam. They say to me all you know. I've tried social media before. And i say okay. What have you done that. I'll put up a video. I k and did you do that once. Yup yup. that didn't do anything sat. And it's kind of like you need to understand that ninety. Seven percent of revenue on facebook is made by digital advertising.

Bill Gates looks back at ‘The Road Ahead’ after 25 years and some hit-and-miss tech predictions

"A look back at what Bill gates got right and got wrong in his book road ahead. This is based on a bill gates blog. Post talking about that stuff. And it's interesting because i had kinda forgotten this but back in nineteen ninety-five when this book was written. He was talking about What do you call digital agents. Which today we call digital assistance. Cortana syria lexus. Google assistant Was pretty forward looking. You know although he says These things are not as sophisticated as envisioned that they would you know twenty five years ago which is kind of interesting but you know what he doesn't say and i find i find this to be somewhat fastening. This book was really controversial Because when it came out it barely mentioned the internet. You know And i mean a month after this came out microsoft its giant pivot where they embraced the internet and You know announced internet explorer and a and they fully embrace the web and he actually came out with a second edition of the book that added the word internet about one hundred and fifty times just to make wa So year later almost a year later they came out with a revised version of the book. but yeah. I mean back. Then you know microsoft well you know. Proprietor proprietary software company there still thinking very proprietary so he saw the need for networks obviously and worldwide global. And all that. But i'm sure he envisioned microsoft being a gatekeeper. That thing you know at the time So that was kind of but yeah. I remember when this came out. It kind of solidified my distaste for these kinds of books. You know i. I was reading the wikipedia entry. But they're like it coulda reception is being very tepid mike. That's a good word for how this book was. Because he used a lot of management jargon and like big ideas. And i'm like yeah but tell us what you actually think about. What's going to happen next because you actually have done. A lot of comdex presentations used to tell us stuff all the terrain and it used to be great. It used to be amazing. You'd be like wow. Is that really the future. And then you read this and you're like wait. What happened between that and the book right. I mean look i. It's anyone who knows anything about bill. Gates it probably has a little bit of a problem with the tech visionary thing but i mean he did foresee the digital transformation stuff that we're that's happening today. He saw video on demand very early. They had a project tiger that was seeking to basically make net flicks back in the nineties He saw pocket computers of course Many years before we have iphones and androids and things like that. So i mean he you know but he'd been spot on the internet aware then he you. You did mention this but he is now going to write another book Which is called how to avoid climate disaster where he's talking about climate change and Yeah this this could be given what he does now with the gates foundation. I think a little more sweeping and maybe more interesting. We'll definitely be more sobering in it. Just yeah yes if we can turn off all those data centers. We wouldn't have. I told you the internet was bad. I don't know why did pay attention in one thousand nine didn't mention it back losing it. That's it's twenty five years. it's amazing. It was twenty five years ago. Nathan myhrvold Was one of his collaborators on the book which is interesting given that he went onto intellectual ventures. Yeah i still have the contents of it on my nass somewhere i of the day. Yeah don't know if it would install these days. It's probably a what they built. Probably some base thing also we have in in. This is interesting microsoft and joins apple and amazon. In saying hey so so in this court case with google. We'd really like it if you didn't share all of our data with jewel 'cause that wouldn't be great also. At and t. Comcast duck duck go oracle sonos and t mobile. Wow i just find this interesting. Because the all of these Big tech Internet anti-trust cases are all based on this notion of the gatekeeper. Right apple is the gatekeeper. I s amazon is the gatekeeper to online shopping. Google is the gatekeeper basically to the internet or the web in the idea. There is that you're searching for things. And they those companies control the search. They see what you're searching for and they can see what's popular. They can offer up their own stuff. Instead you know amazon. Does that with amazon basic stuff. They're like oh look. Batteries are selling great. Let's make batteries. Find the cheapest chinese batteries and get slap a log autumn. And we'll set. We're under price. Them will sell a million of. It's worked out pretty great right so basically no one goal to do this to us through the evidence for providing in this case the idea being that google's lawyers will see the evidence. Go back to google and say hey Apples working on this thing that you might want to know about ever and they would like the stuff to be marked as confidential not in not be something that google's lawyers could bring back to google so it'll be in gogol has said We would never do that. What do you mean. Of course not having with alaska do better say this. If it did happen. I mean we would disclose that. That'd be

Phone addiction not driven by notifications, study finds

"All right. Let's talk a little more about why you're always picking up your cell phone scott. Some subsides right studies. That's good because i've been wondering what the heck i'm doing a study of smartphone use by the london. School of economics and political science found that eighty nine percent of phone. Interactions were unprompted while the remaining eleven percent were because of notification so some people just picking up the phone to look at it thirty seven percent. Sorry thirty seven participants in the study in the uk. Germany and france were cameras to record their phone. Interactions users spent less time their phone when they were home with other people and the most time when in public transport trains that sort of stuff. The study indicates more research is needed about why people interact with their phones. And how fascinating. The common sense is that. It's all those notifications you get you get barraged with your notifications. Just turn off your notifications reduce your screen time. Apparently not this to me this this entire thing. Mimics my cova lockdown time. I took my time from march until now has been marked with these moments of me going. Why am i looking at my phone again. What am i doing here. I don't need to be here and not because of some notification. Still get those. But it's usually maybe you on slack or it's you know somebody else my mom trying to get a hold of me or something like that and i'll respond to those but most of the time it's just megan. The world's weird. I'm kinda tired. And i think tick tock will take my mind off of it and it's a lot of those interactions way more than before march for me. So more study is needed as a obviously. But i'm really curious about how this how this all pans out if they talked more people around the world. I'm a minimal notification person in fact there are lots of apps that will send me a notification. Every once in a while. I make what to. How did i not turn that often settings already like and i go in and no you don't need to you don't need to ping me about this sort of thing. I'll i will come to you if i want to. But i have found. We've talked about this on the show before because the whole smartphone mobile phone mobile device. Anything that is easy on the go is just not something. I need all that often. I mean sure. If i'm at the dog park i might look at my phone and just make sure i'm not missing anything but i don't really go anywhere so when i'm at home. The phones always near me. You know it's rings but then you know. My laptop brings to on face time i. I'm using my laptop. Almost exclusively even something like talk. I look at my for you page on my laptop because there's just more area and it's easier to it and all my messages. Are there anyway and there are very few things that i can't do on my laptop that i feel like on a regular basis and i don't think that that's just oh because i i don't leave the house anymore. I am now just so less. Used to be an on the go being in transit for example. You know someone's standing on the subway forty-five minutes. Yeah you're going to be looking at your phone now. I'm so not used to it that now. I'm sort of like. I don't look at that. It's just a smaller version of my computer. I don't do notifications ver. I very much limit notifications myself. But i still use my phone a lot so i think what the study is showing is that people don't realize when when they're picking up their phone they're picking it up absent mindedly. A few study participants were were kind of shocked when they looked at the video. And like. I don't remember doing that. I don't remember picking up the phone. I don't remember why did it There's been some other studies that show that psychologically when the phone is in the room with you even if you're not looking at it you think about it it reduces your attention level on other things because it's kind of pulling at you. This is another another study in those planks of what in effect phones are having on. Our mental state at the word addiction gets thrown around a lot. And i'm not sure if it's exactly appropriate or not because it carries a whole lot of clinical meetings. That are complex. But there's certainly a poll to having that phone there and this is another study that shows that

Did Boston Celtics Overplay Their Hand?

"Boston. Overplay its hand. There were a lot of reports in the hours. Leading up gordon hayward signing that the celtics and the pacers were discussing a sign and trade gary washburn over the boston globe. He suggests that the pacers were willing to throw in miles. Turner the celtics water a miles. Turner plus package whether it's miles. Turner and tj warren or miles turner and victoria depot. That that that celtics package seemed to highly unlikely to be something the pacers would go for. Tj warrant is coming off a monster performance in the bubble and victor oladipo for all his injury issues. last year is still an all star level player. You don't give up to players of that caliber to get a player. That play like gordon hayward frankly so the celtics. They didn't walk away with nothing because they do have tristan thompson. Now they do have jeff teague. But i can see jeff how miles turner would goodness celtics uniform. And the guy is a three point shooting mobile shot-blocking big man. He's not perfect. He's been called soft before there's questions about positional fit. But something tells me brad. Stevens could do well with versatile. Big man who can shoot three pointer. I i just. I wonder if we'll look back on this in a year and wonder if the celtics overplayed their hand because miles turner in addition to all the things i said he's got a reasonable contract by nba standards anyway. Eighteen million dollars per year over the next three. What do you think of that. Do you think there's a chance the celtics overplayed their hands here. I don't know. I don't think so. Crass t taking a slightly different tact on it. Because i wasn't all that a or the whole idea of only getting mile turner back in the deal. I understand everything you just said But the celtics certainly just made a a decision that that's what they were looking for excitement. Lucy gordon hayward elsewhere without getting any say return on. I don't mind that trying to get a little bit more in it. Not working out for them and again. I'm hearing all your points what you're saying about mouse. Turner but that's something maybe dearly age his staff. I'm not saying you're gonna go out and find another mouse. Turner application that production with a couple of different players here and there and whether it ends up being some kind of combination of daniel thais and looking down the bench and seeing what happens off from that point I just wasn't sure that you know. Look indiana if you really wanna gordon hayward i think you had to force them to really make you pay for it and i don't say that do would you come down to it. The pacers were willing to give up that much and so that sure indicates how much that they really wanted. Gordon hayward i'm fine with the celtics student what they did now. You could be ultimately correct. They may regret not adding that kind of player. Especially we get into the playoffs split I agent it is staff are more than willing to let that ride. It see if they can't come up with that kind of a similar player through the course of use it a couple of different players and seeing what they can do at the trade deadline. Yeah they did get tristan thompson. Which is exactly what they need in on that front line. They've got the more athletic up perimeter shooting floor spacing kind of guy. You've got robert williams who is athletic shop locked they didn't have the physical rebounding tough guy. And that's what tristan thompson is brings championship experience to that team which i think will be a valuable addition and jeff teague is fine. He's not a starter anymore. But you're not asking him to basically kemba walker insurance down there in case kennedy's to take time off that knee injury so it wasn't. It wasn't a failure of an off season for boston. I just. I wonder how we look at this this summer. The summer this fall we look at a couple years

"t mobile" Discussed on Your Brain at Work

"Two weeks ago. . Some of you listen to US talking about how to truly get the. . From, , your leaders when it comes to your diversity equity inclusion efforts, , and there are four main steps that we talk about when it comes to building longlasting strategy is the first one is really mobilizing your leaders. . Then we start moving into building those strategies together with your leaders and then activating the right habits. . Because when we talk about the culture, , it's really shared every day habits. . So how do we properly activate those habits and then the last important step is really reimagining your systems when it comes to talent management systems and business systems in your organization. . So today will focus on how to actually build proper diversity equity inclusion strategies that last in your organization and I'm so excited that Holly's joining us. . I know that T. mobile is very highly recognized as an organization that really invested a lot in building out diversity equity inclusion culture and they've done so much in this space they've built such phenomenal brands and they're recognized by the community. . They've won a lot of awards when it comes to their work incorporate equality corporates inclusion, , and really investing in lgbtq I communities in the beds and women in the workplace. . So I would just love to get started holly and talk a little bit of your journey as far. . <unk> team. All . Ball. . Absolutely thank you esther and for having me I just so appreciate the work of an ally and it's a pleasure to partner with you in this. . So I started in the nonprofit field and I read the pedagogy of the oppressed by Paulo Freire and this truly. . My understanding of advocacy and allied ship. . And I learned early on in this work in a nonprofit working with. . Women students were the first families to go to college. . Many of them were from Latin next Hispanic Communities, , native American Indian lack of African American communities who wanted to be teachers in I learned about listening to their stories that were so different from mine and understanding how to give them a platform and a space for them to advocate in for them to rise I. think . that is one of the biggest lessons that I had is I was really learning Paulo Fair and understanding. . You how to be an advocate in it's shaped my journey throughout my career in navigating equity and inclusion I. . Love that and also especially with current times and current climate, , we see a lot of needs when it comes to the social justice movement a lot of needs from chief diversity officers and heads of those efforts in really integrating a lot of community work and integrating that social justice part into our organization. . Curious. . What comes up for you here when it comes to current times? ? You know this is such an interesting time in so many levels in IC-. . Right now, , companies are either doubling down or starting diversity equity inclusion efforts for the first time and I'm the great by that and I empathize with that and as I described the t mobile Germany I, , want to be clear that when you hear large organizations talk about their work, , sometimes you haven't in your mind or at least I used to it. . They're given at this fifty million dollar budget, , build your team, , build your strategy in a year from now we're GONNA launch you have a year, , figure it out, , and that's not reality that's not what happens in. . So I Of Walk through the journey that we had in real tangible ways in describe what we've done. . I will say that I think that there's a real balance that we have. . You know corporations we have a responsibility and the privilege to be able to invest in our communities and our employees. . But at the same time, , we also have responsibilities as citizens to the active in our communities. . In so I think that there is a real balance there of being good corporate citizens in our community as well as enforcing in really building those inclusive behaviors and practices within organizations

It's something that everybody seems to be wanting to do your curious to see what the underlying technology here because if it is start shaking, that is, it's an industry standard right? Every every carrier has adopted in fact they they are mandated to adopt to stir shaken. Think by the middle of next year so there there's a deadline they're so. I'm curious if There's anything unique to a variety a nap or doing, or if this is something that t mobile not can jump on as well be an interesting thing to to find out and I'm sure we'll learn more as we get closer to becoming generally available later this year.

"That year so we spent a lot of time. eating Rama noodles. We spent a Lotta time macaroni and cheese and we are I guess our gift to each other was finally paid on a credit card payment enough of the minimum payments that we had enough to actually go out and get a meal that we can split, so you guys earned eleven thousand dollars the entire first year. Correct and I want everybody out there listening who can relate to the story to know this is how it always starts, so let's just make sure we're getting some context here. We all know the story of Fedex but a lot of people don't know that Fedex did not did not make a profit for over a decade. We all know the name, ESPN but very few people know. THAT ESPN did not make a profit for over ten years. We all know Amazon, but very few people know that Amazon did not post a profit for ten years. We all know of Tesla. We all maybe don't know. They did not make a profit for over ten years. Somebody should write that down. Because we were competing with the ghosts of magazine covers. That aren't real. Everybody out there who owns the business is trying to build a profitable company a matter of weeks or days or months, when in fact, that's not possible brick. How long did it take you to achieve a level of financial? Success that you thought was at least respectable and or decent for having been a chiropractor who went to school for seven years to do what you do. How long did it take you before you thought okay? I'm finally earning a decent amount of money. Pretty much a solid twelve years twelve years, yeah! Yeah, it could have been shorter bit. I was I was a slow to learn so slow to implement things that I had learned even so, Jeff. How long did it take you to build boom to a level where you thought okay this this company's actually going to last is actually going to be here for the foreseeable future. So ours are turned around pretty quick are in our second year. We started doing fairly well. it's amazing and yeah, until we ended up with a a roadblock and a hiccup that happened any kind of reset everything for us our third year in and in from that it took us another year to recover. What kind of a roadblock did you run into? So when we first launched the business, we launched it as agents in other words. If you think of an insurance agent has multiple providers, they can go out and sell to a consumer, and they're going to get paid a commission off of that. That's the way we started the business originally The company that we built their business for we we, we had got to the point where we were about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a month in commission revenue from one particular company. they just cut us off completely. Why one day notice? No, no notice. told us to go ahead and take them to court They're gonNA use our money to. Battle US and good luck, and so through attorney advice, being young being dumb We just let them ride with it. We were told you know we went after them. They're just going to file for bankruptcy. We throwing good money after bad money and didn't chase it so you've you've had your share of battles for sure so now you're. You've been in business for twenty plus years four years as BOOT mobile. How do you make any money? And now the rude questions start. How do you make? Make money if if Brek decides to switch to you, how do you make money? Okay, so there's a couple of different reasons. This is a common question. We get often so the main reason why we and how we make money and how we can do it for a consumer is the consumer is just one person, and so when you're going to at and T., you're going as one person when I go to at and T, I go carrying forty, thousand, sixty, thousand eighty thousand people. And, so they're gonNA, give me a better price and they're going to give you as an individual. Number One answer number to answer that is the fact that they have a stock market price, and they have to adhere to what drives their stock. They can't drive down. They have budgets. They have their every every every large companies to fat within themselves, and so they have to do something to drive that stock price. Paul Hood, the CPA has bona fide you in? His told me you're not crazy. But. Could endorse mill. There's people out there that have got to be thinking. It's crazy. Jason Visa's GonNa. Come on here and just assault you with rough questions, okay and Beasley. Who Are you? Who's your phone carrier? Who Do you have? Team Oh. We got people I got T. mobile yet t mobile what you spend per month on your phone Bill Jason. Just See here. One sixty. Okay, so one sixty, so let's go with here Steve. You're sitting down right now with Jeff. This is a one on one. It's a sales pitch. Okay, he's corner okay, and for whatever reason he's. He's meeting with you seriously, and he's meeting with you and your with at and T. and T. T. Mobile, right, verizon t mobile verizon to let's say I wanted to move my t mobile line over to you. I've got an IPHONE. Ten can do that. Absolutely. Do I need the the mini Sam or a small Sam or the large semi noticed on your website. You pick which Sam you want, right. And so you would have the Nanno Sim the Nanos him. Yeah, okay. That's what it'd be called, so if I switched that over, I noticed on your on your plans. Because I I actually do use this as a secondary phone so. You could probably do I mean he had like a bunch of different plans? We do so we. We try to make it very easy for the consumer to pick something that fits their needs the most. Take so the misconception for all consumers. None of you actually know what us. Right. y'All think that you know what you use. Well, we I'll say this on behalf of team. We'll call it team. beat us. I have no idea what us. All, go all go there. Also I I give you one mega point.

quick reminder is that you can always schedule a time to speak with me here on the show easy to do head over to the website hit the buttons as be a caller fill out the form and mighty Mandy is gonna be calling you back and send you out all right so we've been hearing a lot about uber drivers English drivers and other gig economy workers that you know have really had the rug pulled out from underneath them as it has for many of us and on the line we have Chad who is a gig contest hi there Chad Hey how you doing so you are now working for Instacart yeah I've been working prescribe for about a year but I'm working towards a car pretty much exclusively these days and so just so everybody's familiar Instacart you well we'll go do all your food shopping and then and then delivered to your house right yep mostly grocery stores you can also order from petco and some liquor stores still well there you go we have liquors product I heard liquor sales are like off the roof right now I know means greasy so I don't really know sister are you haven't how are you staying safe I'm I'm washing my hands all the time like before and after every shop that I do a lot of stores they have employees out front that when they bring the cards back in they they spray on and wipe them down they have tape on the floor like at the checkout registers that shows you you know every six feet to you know that this space customers from each other and a lot of customers I notice are wearing masks and gloves I'm not but you know a lot of people are how come you're not when I read it doesn't really do that much it's more about like master more about if you're sick it helps from keeping other people from getting sick and your goal of this is like every time like if if they're infected with something and you touch something then it goes from the glove to whatever you touched and vice versa okay actually in the car and door dasher bowls sending hand sanitizer and disposable gloves out to their contractors to request it so how much are you making well I will say that I made more and in the last like two weeks and I have been a long time is that right yeah I was a virgin almost doubled my hourly rate because people are taking too much advantage of the services and equipping really nice now too thank you I'm not I was that was one of the questions going to ask you are they are people tipping more now it certainly seems like it and Instacart customers they can change their tip for up to three days after delivery and I've noticed that lately ballers and I'm seeing L. five ten dollar extra tips from two three days ago thank you Sir we have been doing that well you know what because you're really providing a valuable service I mean especially to the elderly who should not be going to the grocery store right I mean there should be a a lot of people say that you know before the the just say No drive safe and like now they're like oh thank you for your service Sir they'll be safe out there and all that stuff so are people still buying a lot of toilet paper if you can find it Hey I haven't seen toilet paper in about a month and the stores but like their cashiers and store managers I talk to the baby wants all the paper we have to be outside the door when they open what do you see what you see is different in orders now than say three months ago well everybody had toilet paper and paper towels and bleach on their list and unfortunately after refund most people on that stuff thanks for shopping but yeah and everybody trying to buy like those Lysol or Clorox wipes can hi to yeah they are it's like I said it's like you want that the don't order I hate to say this but dollar through Instacart because the store went outside before they open and you can get it that way if you order through Instacart or Shipt or any other you know dig up on like that they're not making exceptions are not putting stuff aside for those types of orders so yeah you want to live a better paper tell stuff like that because the store when they open so our people buy more canned goods now yeah a little you can remind me of you know I'm in Florida and yeah we have hurricane season and when it when they think of hurricanes come and everybody starts hoarding up on canned goods pasta and rice and they're doing that now people are people are buying like as if they're expecting the power to go out and I don't have the power to go out but yeah like us candid right off the top it's gonna last a while is definitely in short supply right now you know it's interesting we go back to how much you're making so did walk me through what me through the economics of of somebody places an order how does how does this work I mean do you get paid like you said you get the tips two or three days later right but but how how does that work okay well with Instacart the base pay is seven dollars from them and then it can go up if the customer orders heavy stuff like cases of bottled water especially you get a heavy pay Bob and they also pay sixty cents per mile but they don't really they never revealed like how their pay algorithm works exactly like as far as you know how much the weight equals the actual pay on top at seven dollars and it like in something of a person is a very big order you know like two carts worth worth of food obviously you make more than the seven dollars but didn't they don't reveal on how their pay out of that works plus but if you get the customer step on top of that and but like when you place an order to rent a car at the customer it usually defaults to a five percent tip of like whatever your subtotal is done but then you pay people can like you said people are bumping up especially now you were probably more needed whenever he can't keep safe okay make sure that.

"You do have to go into either the T mobile app or onto the T mobile website to turn on the feature to enable it, but you can certainly turn it on. And so what happens when I get a lot of these calls now is. Is it'll say the number and then it'll say spam or spam likely. I think is the the phrase that they use so mayor maybe a different phrase or sometimes it just simply says call blocked and just let it go to voicemail, and it works very well. So you may actually already have a service and something built into your phone or really your cell phone service that you can use. And so you may not need to pay for one of these third party apps. You could also in addition us some of the features that are built into your phone to kind of help better manage this. Of course, you can block the spam numbers. This could be a little bit futile because they tend to not use the same numbers. Right. That's the whole point of the list is they're constantly changing these numbers. But it is something you could do I do this quite frequently. If I get a spam number go into the phone application, go into the recent tab, find that number. Over and tap, the little I I con next to it. And then swipe up and down at the bottom. You can choose block this caller, and that will add it to your iphones internal block phone number list. And then at least if you get another call from that number. It is going to be blocked. Right. So you can manage that. There's also what a lot of people refer to as the nuclear option, you can leverage the power of the do not disturb feature on your phone to basically create a phone number white list and only allow people from that white-list to actually be able to call you everything else will simply get sent to voicemail. And so this is a good way to handle it. If you don't mind doing it, and you don't mind having to make sure that the contacts, the people in your contacts are always up to date with their latest numbers and stuff like. That the way you do this as you basically go into do not disturb so going to settings do not disturb on your phone and then under the phone section. You wanna set the allow calls from option to all contacts? And then again, just make sure that anyone you want to receive phone calls from is in your contacts with the correct phone number, and that way only those calls will get through now as you're likely thinking if you've ever used do not disturb there are some potential downsides to the nuclear option. First year going to end up silencing all notifications. When you're in do not disturb mode. They're still going to appear in notification center, they'll still show up on your lock screen, but you aren't going to get the audible alerts or buzzes or anything like that for any of your notifications in there is no way to separate general notifications from the phone call stuff. So you're going to be. Operating your phone in do not disturb mode all the time, and that may or may not be something that you want to do the other potential issue is that if even if a person is in your contacts, if they have blocked the caller ID feature for any reason, they might end up going straight to your voicemail in they might not be able to get their calls through to your phone now, not a huge issue because you're gonna find them in the voicemail, and you'll be able to just call them back. But if it was something critical or important that might be a problem. You know, overall, I would say with zoo, I have personally found my carriers service. The thing that I get with T mobile to be sufficient enough to to stop or block most of these phone calls again mine is included with my cell phone plan years may or may not be. So maybe you do wanna turn to one of these third party apps on I'm sure there are likely some free ones out there. I wasn't able to find. Any single one that I felt comfortable recommending to any of you. But if you are using one of these apps, especially if it's a free app, and you're finding that it works. Very very well..

"Is there a reason this deal has to happen now because i certainly as i've listened to analysts and spoken people at of sort of an intimately familiar with the deal there has been a certain camp that has a said made the argument that that deutsche telekom tmobile doesn't necessarily need to do this deal now says there are actually performing quite well and so why why try merging with sprint that's clearly uh you know in not as good of a position may be they can wait a year and get sprint at a lower price is there some political reason or other reason that this deal should happen now now it's a great question a ultimately the backdrop is the political backdrop right is is you have to try to do this during a a republican administration we thought they were going to try it whether it was democrat or republican administration but you're odds are so much better under republican administration that it's that it's to some extent now we're never now has a few years to it as you said an and waiting a few more years arguably would be better you know tmobile and it's this has now been reported by you and others that that t mobile is is frustrated that they believe sprint stock price remains too high relative to its intrinsic value and by the way it's debt level is also too high relative to its intrinsic value so there were some arguments that say you should let it go bankrupt first and that it's not entirely clear it won't go bankrupt in some years if it doesn't get.

"That is two point five gigahertz which again four or five years ago people thought that so high frequency it's it's hard to think of how to use it and now that we're talking about frequency bands that are ten times higher than that it doesn't sound so high anymore and now people are saying wait there is real value in that and and that's likely to become the foundation of of what a combined sprint t mobile would leverage to make something different what type of pricing power to these companies have because wireless at least at this stage not technically treated as a utility bought as in any case where sort of everybody has it even in a world is just three companies you'd imagine that these companies only have so much run rate to say halo we we're all going to jack up your cost ten 2030 brazil gets a great question i mean at the at the at the heart of your question is really are these services differential anymore you know if i went back to before 2011 not coincidently before the time that that at t and t mobile tried to merge there were really three dimensions of competition in the wireless industry wireless operators competed on the quality of their network they competed on the on the their handsets election and they competed on price headsets election is an interesting one right it wasn't that long ago that the iphone was exclusive to at t that ver rise and had put all its eggs in the basket of the motorola droid series.

"T mobile is going in the opposite direction t mobile has gone from strength to strength tmobile in 2011 was a there was an attempted acquisition by at t that failed they walked away with cash and a bunch of spectrum and and it's been lights out ever said that we had a breakup fee for that deal fail huge breakup fee and a bunch of spectrum as part of the break and fee and by the way that you'll failing a sort of what kicked off the talks of sprewell an and that's right and we'll talk about that deal failing because at deal of failing has some important implications for sprint t mobile but the bottom line is tmobile ever since 2011 has been getting stronger and stronger and stronger now there's there may be some hints around the edges that that the run that t mobile is on is starting to wind down and that could be one reason why their corporate parent torch telecom is getting more interested in in getting the deal done now but bottom line is they are strong and sprint is weak and you see that in what's been talked about an exchange ratios so the big big question around the steel even if it is in fact announced in a few weeks is the regulatory question and that's where we get into the discussion with at t and t mobile that deal was effectively blocked by us regulators that said at the time we are taking this industry from four major players to three and therefore we feel like that does not pass the antitrust romeo concerns that we have there would be too much consolidation in his industry we're not allowing the steel regulator said the same thing too softbank and t mobile back in 2013 2014 don't even bother trying you're still going four to three the logic remains the same what has potentially happened in the last five years four years three years that the thinking on that is no longer the case donald trump was elected president.

"And it's been soft banks vision to merge sprinting t mobile from the very beginning and and even t mobile has said for their part that ultimately having more scale an and being scaled similarly to verizon and at and t has to be the real and game 4 for their competitive position so you said five years it has literally been five years that not only people have been speculating about this merger but people have been fully expecting this merger i'm the company's thought about it talked about it and came reasonably close end of 2013 early 2014 and at the time we said look it's not going to happen now but it's inevitable that they will try in the next administration whether it's a republican administration or a democrat administration that it was inevitable evola going to try so there's i guess the main headline here is there is no surprise whatsoever in the idea that these companies are seriously talking about merging give us a sense of the states of these two businesses so you know seemingly everybody has a wireless plan these days but there's so much capital expenditure that goes into wireless companies how are these two companies doing well let's let's start at the industry level the industry is not terribly healthy right i mean this is an industry that people four years thought of as a gogo growth industry and i should say that the industry really is agency horizon sprinting t mobile yeah that's basically those four players and and it's not a terribly healthy industry um because it's not a growth industry anymore you know the years of wireless as a real growth engine of the economy um at least from the carrier's perspective are over wireless and this is true in europe by the way as well most of the developed world wireless is already ubiquitous and.
