The Biden administration is inheriting working COVID-19 hospital data
"The biden administration is inheriting at least one thing around covid nineteen. That's working hospital data from american public media. This is marketplace tech. Molly would on the first full day of his administration. President biden signed an executive order designed to ensure a data driven response to covid nineteen and future public health threats. Now the administration already faces a big choice around cova data in july. The trump administration directed hospitals to stop sending data to the centers for disease control. And instead send it to the department of health and human services and hhs asked the data analysis company pollen tear to harmonize this whole massive information at first hot mess but by the fall the system was really working and now is tracking relations at least really really well. Alexis matter goal runs the kobe tracking project at the atlantic. He says the biden administration should try to ignore the messy politics in favor of the good data. You know part of it is. Cdc is seen as less political organization versus hhs in which you know it's seen as more a part of the administration did not have standing apart. You know one of the things. I really learned this reporting is that description is not totally accurate. In all cases you know the people who built this new hospital data system. They're all career civil servants. And so it really takes getting pretty deep inside these agencies to really understand the dynamics within these very complex organizations so what choices does the biden administration face around this data collection right. They could try to push the data collection for hospitalizations back into cdc into this sort of less flexible and older system or they could keep it inside. Hhs and to one of the things that i've been really worried about. Is that sort of to do this. Sort of abstract good of having the data collection be you know in the place where it belongs that you actually take away the system that working really well right now and that's incredibly transparent for the public. Do you have any sense from the one week by administration has existed of which way they might go. You know. I think the real thing is that the vaccine data is on right you saw. Cdc director will lemke saying you know she wasn't sure about the vaccine data right now and i just got to say i mean that was a system that was designed and built inside the cdc. I mean this is arguably the first major pandemic to exist in the big data age right like it. Sounds like you're saying there's just a skill set there that might not have been developed. Yeah it's not. As if the cdc doesn't collect of course cdc collects tons of data bud for different purposes. It's one thing to need rough and ready data to make decisions today. It's another thing to collect data for research projects over time in which you really want like precise answers but you have a lot of time to develop. Those data sets the questions. Do you ask the process that you build in the pandemic response. I would say by primary criticism of the cdc on a bunch of different levels is they've just moved too slowly. It hasn't seemed enough flake crisis. I mean the early example of that for me was in the very early days when the cdc had put up there cova tracking apparatus. They just didn't update it on the weekends. At a time when cases were like doubling like they stop updating on friday. They'd updated on monday. And there'd be twice as many cases as when they stopped you know. And i just thought to myself like guys. Everyone is working the weekend right now. Like we need to know what happening. The public needs to understand what's happening. You can't just take the weekend off. And i'm happy to say that the vaccine tracking the cdc is doing. They're updating it over the weekend you know. It's like right so so maybe this is a good. Maybe this is a good sign. You know that the administration cdc maybe as reinvigorated and has some renewed sense of purpose and are treating this like the crisis that it really is. Talk to me a little bit about palin tear and its role in this data collection because pailin tier is a name that inspires some dread either in the book or with respect to privacy and transparency. Like what do we know about. Its role in this data collection and how much transparency there is in in what they can. Use this data for to pailin here. It was co founded by peter thiel Who i think for a lot of democrats become sort of a republican supervillain and peter thiel and pailin tier have a lot of government contracts. People are rightfully worried about the extent of their reach into the federal government. But here's the thing people used the fact that. Hhs is data system which is called. Hhs protect was built by pollen tear as a reason to move data out of hhs. The problem is that. Hhs protect actually grew out of a cdc system also built by pailin tier also nih. They also use talent here so we have a system in which pailin tier is pretty thoroughly threaded throughout our public health surveillance infrastructure. Which in my mind. The way that i would set it up if i were doing this. Probably not on the other hand. It's not really an issue of hhs versus cdc. They both used talent here. Right pal to your says that they don't use that data that's that's flowing into system. They built for anything else that they basically just built the database in their hands are off it for what it's worth. Do you think we have that in writing somewhere in federal contract that may over tax.

Why China is Joining the Global Push to Regulate Big Tech
"When it comes to regulating big tack europe has been taking an aggressive stance for a while now and as we talked about on the show. We've seen some action from the us as well but lately china has made moves to join in our reporter. Sam schechner joins me from paris. To talk about why china is getting involved now. What it's doing and what impact could be protect companies. Hey sam thanks for being here. Thanks for having me so before we get to china's action. I wanted to start by bringing us up to speed. European regulators have really been leading the charge when it comes to regulating tack. What have they been focusing on your right. That europe has really been at the leading edge. A lot of these these types of new rules europe's new privacy law the gdp our general data protection regulation was one of the first of the of a new class of transversal privacy laws. And that's actually been emulated in a number of parts of the world. Europe has also been among the first to initiate antitrust investigations into big companies including google and apple amazon and actually has issued decisions against google totaling more than nine billion dollars with fines in recent years and now europe is also helping lead the charge when it comes to coming up with new competition regulations. It's something that's been bubbling in academic circles for quite a while whether or not there's a handful of companies that are so big that they need their own special rules to make sure that they treat everyone fairly to make sure that companies have a chance to rise up and challenge them and the he us antitrust are also in charge of new digital regulation. Here margaret avesta your actually describe it with a metaphor to the automobile. She said that when cars were first invented it a new technology and after some period of time people realize that maybe we need traffic lights right and a lot of action clearly stemming from from that sort of mindset. We've also seen some action in the us as well right. There is indeed some momentum in the us four new competition rules you know given the political environment and some of the differences between democrats and republicans. It's not clear that there'll be an agreement that being said last summer. Democrats in the house. Judiciary committee released a report calling for changes to antitrust laws and creation of new types of obligations and republicans in their own report actually endorsed albeit a narrower set of changes but some areas of agreement such as requirements tech. Giant's make their services interoperable so there is the possibility that some types of legislation might see the light of day in the us dot. So that's sort of the lay of the land but china has also recently joined the push with some new proposals. What do they unveil well. That's right in. November china issued its first draft guidelines for how they want to regulate competitive behavior by digital giants and on paper the guidelines are actually very similar to some of the things that have come out in europe. The uk also has a set of regulations for big tech companies that the proposed and china's proposals include things like blocking companies from crunching consumer data in order to set discriminatory prices or at selling prices below cost to help gain market share. Some of the classic things that might be anti competitive more generally but that big companies are accused of doing and in potentially more difficult to identify with this. And i understand. China has a pretty short history with the sort of regulation. Why are they getting involved now. Well on one hand. China has one of the shortest histories of antitrust regulation of major global economies only adopted its anti-monopoly law in two thousand eight but more cynically. Some people have noted that this push began just slightly after an october speech from alibaba founder. Jack ma who publicly lashed out at the chinese government's tight financial regulations and following that there were a series of regulatory actions against elements of his internet empire. And so the question has been raised when you talk to. Experts is this chinese. Push about really trying to rein in big tech companies to preserve competition. Or is it about taking on people. Like mr ma who they think are challenging the power of the central government. And you know when you talk to when you talk to experts. They say that mon- speech may have been the trigger but that there have been longstanding concerns about increasing concentration among the chinese internet giants including including alibaba but also other companies to rate and since alibaba is one of china's biggest most powerful companies. Making jack ma. One of china's most powerful businessmen. This sort of illustrates broader difference between china and some of the other countries that we've talked about you know. China wants to exert a lot more control over attack and the internet then does the west could barrier in terms of getting different governments on the same page. Well that's a very good question you know we. We really don't know what the long term impacts are going to be of these rules. I mean for one thing. They haven't actually been applied yet. These are proposals and you're right that china's internet is largely dominated by its own set of companies not by global giants and chinese internet. Companies are much less present overseas. So you know it's it's a question. How much one regulatory system or the other will end up prevailing. There are certainly more countries in china's orbit that could end up adopting china's approach to internet regulation but in some cases in some senses that there's similar motivations behind what's going on. I mean whether you're trying to preserve state power for its own sake or because you want to make sure that there can be a new set of companies that come up to challenge. I mean those are still it boils down to saying certain companies have gotten too big and something needs to be done about them and so the more that those sorts of rules are being proposed. It certainly would count as momentum for them. And you know it's not a it's not a given that these things will be done so momentum is meaningful. i mean you. You have free market proponents. Who argue that. These types of proposals go too far that they would hobble digital markets and leave some people worse off so while there is a growing number of experts and competition regulators who say we might need rules like this they certainly aren't unopposed. So china's entry into the fray could potentially impact the course of the debate. Yeah and just to take further. What's the outlook for big tech. Now that china's join this push and how are the company is responding. Well i think big tech. Is these big tech. Giants are increasingly aware that they're going to be facing more regulation whether it's about privacy whether it's you know updates to tax rules whether it's about their obligations to other companies in terms of new competition regulations. It's just a fact of life. And so i think at this point. They're they're now down to figuring out how to make sure that these rules are ones that they can live with. You know when you talk to facebook they sort of are perhaps the most acquiescent saying that we acknowledge these types of rules must apply to us. Amazon and google say more that they would hope that rules that would be rules that apply to all companies not trying to focus on a few. But i think it's it's certainly fair to say that these companies are going to find themselves much more regulated and they have at the last couple decades have been a sort of open playing field for them. It seems likely that they're going to find their their field of action more limited. They may have time doing the same kinds of acquisitions that they had done before. Or certainly will face more scrutiny. Before they're able to complete them. Some regulations on the table could in the case of repeated non-compliance go as far as breakup. I think really the us would have to get more into the game for that to to truly be on the table. Indeed the ftc's suit against facebook last year did specifically talk about unwinding some of facebook's acquisitions

NASA Technology Designed to Turn Space Trash into Treasure
"Orbital sin gas commodity augmentation reactor is an early career initiative that studies technology to convert trash and human waste into useful gases such as methane hydrogen and carbon dioxide by processing small pieces of trash in a high temperature. Reactor oscar is advancing innovative technology for managing waste in space. Here's anne meyer a chemical engineer at nasa's kennedy space center so on a one year mission crew four would produce around twenty five hundred kilograms of trash. We can convert over ninety five percent of that solid trash into gas. It's enough gas that you can convert into a fuel that could do things like course correct spacecraft or used to send a small payload from the surface of the moon or mars. But what could oscar mean to us on earth especially in the united states will see a lot of landfills and the same technology developed for space. Travel could be used to process our solid trash right here at home

PUMA Sponsors Honor of Kings' KPL to Join Nike as Major Athletic Apparel Brands with Esports League Contracts
"Know. I have a weird fixation on the Athletic Apparel Brands and the work they do in Esports and I absolutely blame growing up in Beaverton, Oregon the home of Nike but while I'm only kind of biased to the swoosh, I'll admit that. I'm a fan of all the brands in Esports and especially Puma because they're led by Matt Shaw who happens to be one of my favorite people in all of these Sports on Sunday Puma announced a new major sponsorship Puma sponsoring ten cents king of league. If you haven't heard of the kpl the kpl is the top level of honor of Kings Esports, and I know you don't live in China on Earth Kings is called Arena of Valor in the West End is basically League of Legends mobile version including being published by 10 said now Riot games is actually in the process of creating wild Rift and official mobile version 4 league, but it likely won't take off in China because on Earth Kings is already huge and domination. Market, and it really really dominates that market as of March 2019 the game and brought in four point five billion dollars according to sensor Tower. I'll do something quick extrapolating math here. I found individual month's Revenue numbers from 20 20, which average I think this actually might be a conservative estimate another two hundred million dollars per month in revenue for honor of Kings. So if we take to walk 1 million as an average and multiply it by the 22-month separating March 2019 and January 2021, we get an additional four point four billion dollars in Revenue that would bring honor of Kings total halt to a point nine billion dollars since launch in 2015. That's a lot of money a lot of money this week the developer TV studios. Also announced another $154,000 would be invested in honor of Kings Esports with about six million of that going to prize pools for Puma. It's a huge win. The only other Esports League represented by Athletic Apparel birth. Like I said at the top is Nike and they have the League of Legends Pro league in China. And while the LPL is almost certainly the most important individual League contract and all of Esports honor of Kings K p.m. Is honestly not that far behind. It's just almost purely popular in China what Nike got with the LPL was also that International exposure that comes with worlds. Primarily Puma also offer deals with Cloud Nine and Gingy. I predicted the race for Esports assets from Nike Puma and Adidas would pick up and twenty Twenty-One and with Adidas already partnering with G2 and now Puma grabbing the kpl only in January. The race is definitely picking up steam already.

Clubhouse Raises A New Round At $1B Valuation
"I'd like to think that this news is a direct result of the fact that i spoke on stage at josh constanze weekly press clubroom on clubhouse on thursday night. Paul and the gang saw how successful that went. And we're like quick. Pull the trigger on this for sure. I'm joking of course. But in a blog post yesterday clubhouse announced a new funding round led by a sixteen z. Word on the street is that it's at a one billion dollar valuation. Which if you'll recall six months ago people were saying it was crazy that a sixteen z led a one hundred million dollar valuation also clubhouse says it will soon begin work on an android version of the app and it is actively beginning tests around paying creators or at least allowing creators to charge and earn quoting techcrunch. The plans around monetization routes for craters appear to be relatively open ended at this point with clubhouse saying it'll be launching first tests around each of the three areas it mentions tipping tickets and subscriptions over the next few months. It sounds like these could be similar to something like a patriotic built right into the platform. Tickets are a unique option. That would go well with clubhouses more formal round table discussions and could also be away. That more orgnisations could make use of the platform for hosting virtual events during a regular virtual town hall. The apps founders hosts on the platform ceo. Paul davison revealed that clubhouse now has two million weekly active users. It's also worth noting that clubhouse says it now has over one hundred and eighty investors in the company which is a lot for a series. B though many of those are likely small independent investors with very little steak and quote. I thought martin bryant had decent analysis of this in his big revolution newsletter. This morning quote. People are excited about clubhouse because it's like a grownup version of twitch clubhouse is the first opportunity for professionals to build a presence and an audience in a near zero barrier to entry live media app at its worst. This means. there's a lot of lincoln. Style fake insight and people trying to be gurus but it also means there are a lot of really interesting conversations featuring people you might not hear from on other platforms. The twitch analogy seems to fit with clubhouses monetization strategy. The plan seems to be provided a platform and money making opportunities. Then sit back and take a cut as we've seen with the stories format once something is a success in one place. You can't stop it popping up all over the place so far. The only notable clubhouse clone is twitter spaces which is still in testing but expect live audio chat to be tried in all sorts of slight variations across different apps. You already use for. I suspect linked in is already exploring what it could do with this format. The challenge for clubhouse is maintaining its value as a destination everyone else offers the same features helping creators. Get paid is one part of this. But ensuring those craters provide enough reasons for listeners. To keep coming back we'll be a greater challenge. But then you can stream video game footage in a number of places including facebook and people keep coming back to twitch so. The problem isn't insurmountable quote
Axios CEO Jim VandeHei On Media Post-Trump
"A lot can happen in four years for years ago. Donald trump was being sworn in as our forty fifth president and also four years ago. Axios was founded and delighted to have jim van high co founder and. Ceo of axios with me here today. Great to be here. So and congratulations on your four year anniversary. Thank you we we started. We actually moved up our launch because we interview with donald trump so our first term matched up with his first term. We can leave it all of you to decide what better i show while. I wanna talk about the future of media in the airhead recording this the day after biden's inauguration actually has grown up under the trump presidency in our in this completely new political moment with the biden administration coming out of the first day of the new regime. What are you paying attention to. Yeah i mean we at axios. We cover a broad range of topics so politics technology media business and in the political sphere. Obviously we're spending a lot of time. Thinking about how joe biden the presidency will unfold but also how it will unfold in this kind of wild and wacky media environment where you've got you know roughly half the country that doesn't trust anything that the mainstream media produces and you have this rise in the number of people who believe things that aren't true and i don't think we've ever been here's a country where we've been the last couple years. We just have so much distrust in so much misinformation and so much propaganda in so much of a taking root with people that you and i would say other serious smart people and yet they don't believe the same things that we believe even if a to us they're fact base and that's a huge problem in that environment is going to be surrounding joe biden. And you can't extract politics or biden from media swish together. I think you make a big mistake if you try to understand politics without having a pretty good appreciation of modern media yeah in trump is leaving this legacy of distrust of the media and hatred of the media which he's kind of been able to spread to a broader set of followers. What do you think the long term effects of that negativity toward media will be. I mean i think it's to be determined. I think it's gonna take a long time to repair what is broken. When you have this many people you have a maybe half the country. It's deeply skeptical of media in general and kind of what we would define this truth. It makes it almost impossible to be a functioning society in that environment and i think for the incumbent brands. It's going to be really hard to win back. The trust the people who distrust or mistrust them now i think it creates new opportunities for companies like axios or companies at mina merge over the next couple of years ought to be able to maybe kindle rekindle a relationship with people who were skeptical of things about around for a long time. But it's a problem that has to be solved if we end up essentially de-coupling and what i mean by that is if we have half the country living in at different bubbles where it's not just the media you're consuming but it's the platforms that you're going on to share debate and think about The news that you're consuming. I really worry about that. Consensus essentially it. Truly is to america's it's not just sort of generically saying to america's like we would have to america's and we have to solve for that and we have to solve that while also figuring out how do we put rules around that big tech platforms that allow for people have freedom of speech but also be able to navigate the world without Mistrust in propaganda and nonsense in noise pulsing through the devices in the platforms. They're spending the vast majority of their time on and exit at axios takes a pretty a political approach which that feels like a good stance to take coming into the next four years and through what happened. In the trump administration was that something that you foresaw or in kind of taking a more neutral stance or was that something that you just kind of. We're going to do anyway and all of a sudden maybe you're seeing some positive effects yet. No we'd always planned being that way in. Our view is that world is anymore. Noise what the world needs is more clinical fact based reporting done by people who have expertise so that you can get people who might be skeptical of media to believe in beedi again and for people to stay better information to make better decisions and that's why we started. Axios is our thesis. The thesis was correct. Was people almost everyone. We knew their minds were just jammed and crammed with information and they had less time to actually think about information at a time where all of us need to know a lot more across more topics. It's really hard to do my job. Unity your job if you don't really understand politics or technology or social platforms or media or some business trends. Let's a lot. It's a lot to ask of you and ask of me and so if you can't bring more efficiency to that process if you can't bring more clarity to the information that people are consuming it's just gonna get too difficult for the end user the consumer And so even though i mean are even as i think. A lot of people are appreciating this kind of super brief approach to news. People are consuming so much news. I feel like in the past few years because there's just so much going on with trump and then out of course that the pandemic there's this idea of the trump bump that's driven a lot of subscriptions in really helps a lot of media publications at the same time that trump has kind of led to some of these negative effects that sustain. What do you think happens to. Some of the media publications that have benefited. Most from the trump bump my assumption was that the trump bump which fade people would stop paying so much attention to politics but just had so much craziness the corona virus. Getting worse. Not getting better. Obviously the mob at the capital still persistent fear that there could be more violence as a result of the election results. So we're not seeing that decrease yet though. I assume the decrease will come to be honest. I think it'd be really healthy for all of us. If if traffic to political coverage decrease tremendously. I honestly it might sound weird because people create create a politico and we obviously do a fair amount of political coverage here. But i think people gone nuts. I think people are consuming. Wait way way too much political content. I see in our traffic patterns. I see in my own family. We as a species were not meant to spend this much time thinking about talking about debating sharing opining on politics. It's not healthy. I always compare it to a doritos. Like into real nice. I love him in like if you have one once in a while. It's good but if you eat two or three bags at day you're going to be a fat slob and you're not going to be healthy and i worry that that's what we're all doing with politics is driving people crazy and i think the world would be better place if we all got a life outside of our phone and our and our websites
Was the iPhone 12 a smash success? Here's when we find out
"This is a big earnings reports. Big one this is the one where we get the numbers for the iphone launch. So what are you expecting. We're expecting either a blow out or a surprise not blow out. This is one of those either it it really knocks the socks off for a dozen and part of it is because of the iphone. Twelve right this is a device that has been in terms of the financial world years in the making a smartphone sales in general have slowed down or gone down. Apple is kind of plateaued in terms of it and really this device is supposed to be what draws everyone back. I mean there were surveys out there. That showed something like half of customers. Who are iphone users or potential iphone users. Were gonna buy the iphone twelve. That is a massive number of people and so if that comes to be true it's going to be one of those really big moments for apple. Where they they move into another whatever. The next level is for that company it's already defying all gravity but they go even further right. The idea here is that the last time we had this so called super cycle was back with the iphone. Ten right where it was a new design there was a big Sort of big That resigned drove la demand because people held on their foes. Long enough is three or four years. This was sort of the next time. People were due for an upgrade right. Yeah you would think the iphone ten but in fact you know. Surprisingly the iphone ten was even a smaller cycle than what these people expect which is more like the iphone six If you remember that that was when it went from being the boxy design of the iphone five two more rounded corners which is what they kept until the iphone ten and also the first time they had a larger phone right that the six plus and that drove a ton of demand especially from asia where larger phones at the time were much more popular now. They're popular pretty much everywhere so you have to think like that. Moment for apple was enormous. And this is expected to be like that and it's hard to feel like in the middle of an economic catastrophe that that could happen. But i guess anything's possible. Yeah we've definitely seen from other checkup as that. The pandemic hasn't really had a real impact on their financial results. We'll see that book because that's it's tangible thing. it's funny. You mentioned that like the last. Big upgrade cycle was when the design went from box to curve in it with the iphone twelve. We went from curved back to boxy. it's like innovation. Yeah i mean it's it's like the it's it's like fashion right. What's old is new again. And it's kind of funny. I personally am more of a fan of the boxy design. Because i can hold it easier so i was all in on that. I did not like the curved ones. I always felt like they were going to slip out of my hands and i always had to have a case so i think that at the very minimum. The other thing that you have to keep in mind is that apple is pushing so hard the idea of the cameras and they've always been a thing but you now see the amount of time that they spend talking about the cameras in their presentations. You've got those shot on iphone commercials for the billboards. Although how many of us even go outside and see them anymore but those types of things really pushed the idea of unita upgrade this phone regularly. Because you're going to get the best camera you can in your pocket and even though we're all stuck inside apparently it seems like people still want really nice cameras. Well i know my wife takes analysts photos of our kids so that camera quality was the big selling point for her. The upgrade the other big feature obviously was five g. They talked a lot about five g. But do you think it had any impact on sales just given the fact that you have to be out and about to take verify. Gene and a lot of us aren't really out about that often. Well you have to be in a place where five g works. I have still yet to have five g work on my phone as i'm driving around in dc. And maybe it's because i'm the wrong carrier. You have more of a verizon town but still it's just it's crazy to me that this is a feature that's the headline feature and i have not actually had a turn on at all. I think that really fight. Jia anything is a hype thing it's able to draw people in. It's kind of like three d. tv's way back it's like oh we'll just slap another thing on the box but people rarely used it and i think five g eventually obviously is going to be the future but i have a feeling that if it did draw people in it was because of the hype of what it is not the actual functionality of it yet.

The Story of How TSMC Came To Dominate the World
"So obviously tracy. We've been talking a lot about chips lately. But for all the episodes we've done we haven't hit like what is sort of a. I guess i would say the elephant in the room or the gorilla in the room that keeps coming up over and over again. We've been going at a. I would say from a us perspective. Very focused on the trouble at intel. But we haven't really talked about the success story. That is taiwan. Semiconductor manufacturing company better known as t s emcee. Yeah exactly right so every episode that we do it sort of comes back to them. What a juggernaut. They've become and of course you know. The sort of basic story is that manufacturing chips is extremely hard It's extremely expensive. And it's very difficult to scale until Is one of the rare companies that designs and manufactures. Its own chips. But that for a lot of these companies that are sort of exploding ri- gaining market share there Having taiwan semi manufacture them and taiwan semi is getting extremely good or is extremely good at a manufacturing and maybe Pulling away from intel some extent in terms of its manufacturing capabilities. Right and i think they actually invented the foundry model which you know this idea of just manufacturing chips which keeps coming up over and over and over again in all of our conversations as one reason the entire semiconductor industry has changed and one reason why intel is struggling but the thing i find kind of amazing like in twenty twenty one. We all take it for granted. That tsmc is this massive player in the semiconductor industry in the world. Really but i find it really really noteworthy and you know somewhat surprising. In retrospect that what is a single company on an island has emerged to really dominate chips. That are now vital to all sorts of things so computers smartphones cars. Everything i think. Tsmc manufacturers little over half of the world's chips so it's not quite a monopoly but again like they are the juggernaut in the room as he put it absolutely. And it's such a. I mean it's such a pivotal company for a lot of reasons. I mean you mentioned cars. It was just a story this week recording this january twelfth by the way there was just a story this week about how car manufacturers around the world are actually running into supply constraints because they can't get chips because of the chip manufacturers decided to reduce their production of automotive chips during the crisis in the spring on the expectation that demand wasn't going to be there and now they haven't ramped up taiwan semi They're to actually reporting earnings. This week expected to be very strong. Earnings are soaring. stock is soaring. And then of course. Because it's in the strategic position end because taiwan itself is in this Uh strategic position obviously between the us and china and the roll over its status. It's just an incredibly central player and sort of necessary to understand the story right a big player in tech big player across multiple supply chains in a bunch of different industries. Uncertainly player geopolitics as well. So we really talk more time on semi and we have the perfect guest to do that. Someone who knows all about the company who's been covering them for a long time since long before they were the dominant player They are today. We're going to be speaking to copen. He is a tech columnist at bloomberg. Opinion has been with us a bloomberg for fifteen years and he's actually been covering The tech industry from taipei specifically for the last twenty one years Everything about Taiwan semiconductor where it came from this important player so tim thank you very much for joining us. Hey thanks time guys to talk to you tim. How would you describe the importance of taiwan semiconductor in the world right now well as you assess just saying they are so huge. Tracy pointed out the creates. Such a large share of the world saw chips. There's probably not a single device in the world that doesn't have. Tsmc somewhere but whether it's a car die. Fine of course famously. But even some really unimportant boring things like temperature sense. A hiya or some led lights array there. They do serve much of the waltz products. They're they're basically everywhere and so if that would've stopped production. Tomorrow i think the global technology industry would grind to a halt very very
Resident Evil 8 Village: Maiden Demo - PS5 Performance Review
"Let's talk a little bit about the before we get to the next segment. Let's talk a little bit about the resident evil events that happened on the twenty first resident evil village. We'll talk about the demo that was released called maiden on playstation in the the Playlist segment because some of us have played it but is it a pretty big event announced on a number of things including the fact. That resident evil village will be coming in may may seventh. Is the current release date game. That was neither tone hoping it gets delayed. Don't you worry. And surprisingly a game that had been announced as a very prominent next gen title. Or what is now current gen titled playstation five xbox series x title and pc is going to be released on the previous gen playstation four xbox one and there will be a upgrade paths. You if you buy the game on playstation four you'll be able to upgrade to the playstation five version for free Same thing with xbox one xbox series s or x which that's going to be smart delivered so you don't have to worry about it on the xbox platform pretty cool there What do you think about this. Rob the are you a fan of resident evil. You're excited for village. And what do you think about. These games are now sort of well into twenty twenty one still being released on the previous gen first of all. I'm a mega resin. Evil fan all the way back to. I mean i used to rent a playstation from blockbuster video just a player isn't even one. Before i get own one myself and it's a it's a huge influence on my life especially from game audio. The original evil games those have very effective and evocative sound in them. So i've been a huge fan of her. Since and i think capcom has had a renaissance of resident evil as of late starting with seven and then the remakes and now eight or village. I'm really excited. I think the moved. The first person was a big head. Scratcher meals like this doesn't make any sense. And i played it and i was like okay. Get it's actually pretty good faltered a little bit towards the end but like ultimately like it was extremely effective scary game. I did not play in vr. Because i just don't know if i could handle that but even still in two in two d it was it was just as a scary in this everything seen from it is right up that same alley of of seven In terms of like games coming out cross jen like i think that's just smart They've shown that that ari engine is very scalable like extremely scalable. The ones The remakes and seven looked fantastic on any constantly played them on and eight is just that same engine. Now scaled up even further for action. Councils and i think they already had that skill building built in because they were building it for p. c. all the way down to base. Ps four previously. So now they're just scaling that higher end further but they can still go back to the low end so i just smart And then doing the right thing offering free upgrades on on ford. Ps five and Smart deliver xbox. That's just smart. 'cause you're gonna catch people you know who who right now. Can't they may have the money to buy an xbox series x or or five and not be able to get it and don't wanna play it right away and you know you're gonna you're gonna take care of those people who have the systems and wanna play the game now and then maybe get the opportunity to buy one of the new council sooner I i think there's they've done everything right. Here has nothing to complain about
The Cut Throat War To Dominate China's Grocery Delivery Industry
"Speaking of china. You had a great story on. I didn't i mean who knew this. This is why. I love rest of world because we're learning about stuff that the cutthroat war dominate china's grocery delivery industry is there a grocery delivery industry in china. I'm kind of. I don't know why i'm surprised to hear that. Yes so follow me for a second. This is a really crazy model. That like a hundred million people plus china right now. So it's really big and it's really really and it's attracting sort of like grandma's almost like aunties You know people are really price conscious so imagine you have a group chat and all of your neighbors or that group chat and you have sort of like you know maybe a local state home mom or someone you know. Maybe the corner store owner Someone who owns a seven eleven and they are the moderator of that group chat every single day they give you some grazie deals for fresh food and all you do is in that group chat. Say what you and the next day the stay at home. Mom we'll get it all delivered to her place and then she'll bring it to you or you go pick it up at the corner store. So they're called group buying groups so she gets everything and then parcells it out to her neighbors the like uber or d. Which is the over of china is invested in this every ten cent. Jd dot com alibaba. All the biggest tech companies are investing in this all over the place. It's a huge frenzy. Just sort of like get all these people because cheer point. These are people who didn't usually virus online. They were just go to the corner store and get stuff previously but what this is doing is leading all those big tech companies. Cut a ton of costs. They get marketing from the stay at home mom. They get logistics. they don't have to go to each person's home right the stay at home. Mom will take care of that for them. So the money to right she gets she gets about five ten percent commission so she's incentivized to get as many people as possible most of these people. Have you know anywhere from a couple hundred to nine hundred. She's all that are managing. It's huge or that and it can be can be a big source of business for them and it's a crazy trend in china and it's become really really wild actually two employees at one of the companies that his invested in this actually died Recently which sort of set off this huge reckoning about like you know are they pushing employees too hard at these companies you know is this frenzy worth it. The government is mad about it. But i love it because it's like stay at home. Mom selling vegetables by everyone in tech is just all over themselves over it. Well as you out It's a in. The article is highly customized. Because this one person who is managing this group note gets to know everybody their interests their tastes what they want what they don't like so it works. It works really well. I have to say come on. If you're like cute little neighbor texas everyday and it was like sale on. Carrots are totally doing. Yeah fifty cents. Bundled carrots come grabbed them tomorrow with your eggs and your milk or whatever. Of course i would do it. This model could work in the rest of the world. I think that. Like when i think about someone like my mom who's like knocking to navigate. Instacart knows how to use. I message the thing is that it's integrated into chat right and we don't really have each year in the same ways. I think we're sort of far off. But i do think you know this super-charged by the pandemic there are way more people anger. She's online than there used to be. And i think that instacart is ripe for disruption. I think like you know whole foods. Delivery is not doing anything particularly Innovative and i think even amazon and these logistics giants are still really struggling with how to make a profit off of this and these chinese companies sort of figured out a way to do it although to be fair. They're offering really really low prices because he's really price conscious consumers and suppliers or getting mad. Because they're like selling a bottle of cooking oil for like less than the actual cost to make it so there are a lot of sort of reminds me of when it was like two dollars. Take an uber anywhere. Because they were just pouring money on it and get a fifty percent off lift ride. If you just open the super happen the lift up notice that you were doing that. We all remember. That's it feels like that. Yeah so i do worry it. Sort of gimmicky.

Do I have any options 'cause I thought. Something. So they do send you a text resign up. But once you receive the text, and you've authenticiated the device that you're connecting from you don't have to get that message again on that device. You just have to verify one time. Unless of course, it was reset or something like that. You only have to verify that device that one time. So you don't continuously have to get the code. No, I will say I have a g mail account, and I have two factor authentication setup on it. And if I log out on a machine sometimes it does prompt me for that code.

"For your personal tech questions. Our buddy Allen from Brandon has called in this morning. Good here from Yellen. Go ahead, please. Oh, hey, Kevin Wilson. Jeremy hope y'all doing wheel do good. Yeah. I'm just gonna keep it simple. And then give my definition of cloud. I mean, I it's like anything else. When the marketing whole homes are time, you know back in the day with our computers. Everything was located for the most part. You know, we well unless you're using dial up or something like that. But you know, you had a floppy drive to get information into it. And then we got hard drive cetera cetera. Now, we're all connected to computers that are other than our local savage meant that you know, there's various ways to connect. And and the way I think of the cloud. It's just all those computers that that you're accessing that aren't at your. At your home site. So. I I'm I'm a little tab leery of you're gonna be paying somebody for the connecting service. And you're gonna be whether you're using dropbox or one of those kind of stores, you know, accounts to to store stuff, you gotta pay for that too. I I'm still a big fan of having a like a USB hard drive backup to and things like that. I'm I I'm not a big fan of stuff like carbonite for for and stuff up over the air. But but as more and more people are are streaming their content and getting video and music and stuff to these connected services. I guess that he keep hearing this cloud drum getting beating louder and louder because that's what more and more folks are doing but just be aware. Yeah. You can still do a lot of stuff from your home base. That's how I think in the cloud. I hope I've got it straight. And I mind, otherwise, I'm just confused people. I guess, but that's a comment. I wanted to make all right? Yeah. I mean, I think you're pretty much dead on that. It is the the cloud is basically getting services from somewhere other than for lack of a better way, putting it in your living room reaching out somewhere else to get it. So that can be private and local so say, for example, if you were at your house, and you have some of the newer devices that are able to store devices that all the computers in your house. You can get to you have some little small stores like that. So you can be retrieving it from other computer in your home. If you're in business, you could be retrieving it from within that business. So, you know, for us we actually have a server room up there in the building. And we retrieve all the information is stored centrally, and we serve it out to the other people or across the internet, or what we call the wide area network once your heating to the internet, you're reaching somewhere. You may not know where you're reaching. I mean, we're we're seeing this, you know, not only in storing devices, but also in your video streaming services say your net flicks. Or anyone else? Or even for that matter. You can go to the website, and you can be listening to this show right now via the cloud via our, you know, assorted apps or being served up through the websites. That's actually a cloud services. Well, so I think you're spot on Allen things that are beyond you locally. If it's not right there in your hand. It's essentially being cloud served, Jeremy. Yeah. I I definitely agree. If it's if it's being streamed to your phone, it is in some way, going through a cloud server of some kind as far as the way that we think of it, you know, he was saying that he he didn't really like it so much, and you know, there's a lot of reasons of that might come down to as far as the downsides of it..

"Five, three six year listening to the tech guy. A welcome back to the tech guy, rich Mira with you on this Saturday. We're talking tech Leo LaPorte on vacation filling in for him. By the way, thanks to Leo for letting me do this. I appreciate it on the tech reporter at KTLA channel five in Los Angeles. So most of the time I'm talking tech on the TV in the morning on morning shows across America including Los Angeles. It's fun to come up here to these studios and talk tech on Leo show. So the phone lines are open. You have a question eight ask Leo, but like to bring a guest on right now, Johnny jet travels. The world basically has a dream job for a majority of people who are not scared to fly because if you were scared to fly, you wouldn't want your job. I used to be afraid to fly what? Yes, I got over my fear, but you could not get me out of plane for three years between the ages of eighteen and twenty one, but I was always fascinated with it. I still am today blows me away that people can be transported in just a short amount of time to a completely different part of the world. And I just think people these days aren't really appreciative of what they do. I mean, were they. Can do. I mean, I've gone to Hawaii for dinner before. Gosh, that's amazing. I agree. You wake up to me whenever I fly the fact that number one, I'm putting my trust in an expert and you know these people do it every day. It's kind of like when people say to me like, oh, you make so easy to be on TV. We'll number one. Nobody ever says that to me. But one day I hope they do, but you know what I mean? It's like, but to to pilot that's flying these things to them. It is easy and I'm not discounting their job. Believe me. It's very complex. But if you ask them, you're like, oh my gosh, I can't. We can't imagine doing it. Well, I can't, but to them, it's what they do. And that's why we have so many different people in this world that do what they do. They're the experts in their field, and that's what I love about this world is I'm not gonna learn how to fly plane. I don't want to need to, but I'm gonna let those guys and they devote their entire lives. I read that book the soli guy. I read his book and it's just amazing heath loved. I mean, everything about flying was so technical to him and just beautiful, and that's why he was able to do it. He did. It might make thing was I was afraid of not only. Crash, but I got over that because I've read all the statistics. I asked people studied it. I'd go to the airport for ten. I was flying. And then my other thing was it being in control? What if I had an asthma attack back, then I had asthma or what if you know headings -iety tank. I couldn't just pull over the side of the road. I in car, shut that door if it's for real. And so I got over by listen to my favorite music. I would not. I wouldn't read the sports page until I got on the plane. But once we took off, I was finding, I realized how smooth and safe it is..
