Fresh update on "tech company" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"Buckle up. Here we go charlie. What you've done is incredible here. Maybe charlie kirk is on the college campus. Won't you to know. We are lucky to have. Charlie sharply curbed the white house. I want to thank. Charlie's an incredible guy his spirit. His love of this country has done an amazing job building. One of the most powerful youth organisations ever created turning point. Usa we will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. The big news event happened today that we have been waiting for. This is not an unexpected event. This is something that we are anticipating when the people who actually run our country have decided to tell us whether or not a former president of the united states should be able to access an audience of over two hundred and twenty eight million people or sixty nine percent of the united states population of course talking about facebook a company valued at over nine hundred billion dollars. Facebook has a twelve digit worth. Facebook is more solvent than the federal government. Facebook has more data than the federal government. No one voted for facebook. Facebook is not a participant in the promise of the consent of the governed. We are going to walk through. It's really happening when it comes to this company and all the tech companies so this was a day that we've been waiting for said on cinco de mayo that they were going to come out and happy. Cinco de maya. By the way they were gonna come out and announce whether or not donald trump will be able to regain access to his facebook properties most significantly instagram and facebook. This came after january six where facebook decided the ban donald trump. But they said they were going to revisit it. I'm reading from the new york times. Facebook's oversight board which acts as a quasi court over the company's content decisions said the social network was right to bar. Mr trump after he used the site to foment insurrection in washington in january the panel said the ongoing risk of violence is justified. The move but the board also said the indefinite suspension was not appropriate and the company should apply a defined penalty. Let me just stop here. President trump has not been charged with any crime. President trump was acquitted by the united states senate and there is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that anything that facebook is saying here.

Tim Apple vs. Mark Facebook

"One actually start by going back three years ago to this moment when tim cook of apple goes on msnbc. We're looking at every app in detail. What is it doing is doing what it's saying it's doing. Is it meeting the privacy policy that they're stating right. You're nodding so. I know you remember this. You guys ic he covers tech for the new york times he knows this moment. Well because in this interview tim cook. Does something unusual talk. He's talking to chris. Hayes and kerr swisher about privacy. This is just after people's personal data from facebook was exposed in the cambridge scandal. Speak scandal and kara says but would you do what would i do. i wouldn't situation would. What did you think then. Because i was like whoa is aggressive for ceo to say i mean both been carrying business stuff for a long time and it feels really out of the norm for a ceo to just lobby. Grenade vat aggressively at another ceo. You know that is not necessarily at least at that time. A direct competitor look cook was doing was starting a fight between facebook and by extension between himself and mark zuckerberg over privacy. I think tim cook does actually believe at least some of this philosophy around privacy and that How the ad tech companies work in particular is more invasive. Been he would ever want his own company to be. This fight. came to a head this week. When apple released its new operating system system that could begin to change the internet that we've all largely given into the one where we trade our personal data for free services.

"Okay fair warning. We are about to get a bit meta this. Podcast episode is about the future of podcasts and why to tech companies apple and facebook are plunging feet first into the audio pool recruits. Peter kafka's. you're talking about. Hey peter so over the last couple of weeks there's been a bunch of talk about how big tech companies are getting into audio. There's apple and facebook. Let's start with apple which has more experience in this space. Tell me what apple is doing in the world. Podcasts apple mostly created the market for podcasts. And i say that knowing that people in the madame because apple did not technically invent podcasts. But they're the ones who sort of brought it to the mainstream back in two thousand five and then they pretty much left it alone. They have not tried to do much with podcasting. They have not assigned many people They haven't put much resources toward it and they haven't tried to make any money and now that's changing a little bit. They are going to allow individual podcast creators and publishers to sell subscriptions to podcast within apple. And so there might be a sm- they're gonna say smallish business. I think it's gonna be a huge business but it's gonna be something for apple so they've gone for making no money on it to making potentially some money so apple's going basically take a cut of podcast revenue that's made by a show host or pretty sure is that is that right. That's exactly right. It's the same same model. They have for apps and services like hp max etcetera. The publisher over makes the thing keeps seventy percent. Apple keeps thirty percent if you keep doing it for more than a year that cut goes to eighty five and fifteen

Why not flip a grim but instead the buyer that came calling was a company in china that john had never heard of called bytedance. The first time it came up like a chinese tech company like we were like no. We were disappointed. 'cause we we hadn't heard of it we you know. We were hoping for some big exit to facebook. Or you know. We wanted to high profile company You know and yeah and so to have a chinese tech company that we never heard of was not exciting but this was the company that acquired flip graham bytedance had money to spend and they wanted to have a bigger presence in the us. They also wanna flip graham because of the music deals it had with major record labels after the acquisition went through. The ceo of bytedance flew to la to check out the american company.

Why a Dystopian Future Is Not so Far Away

"Russia i've been spending a fair amount of time recently watching star trek deep space nine which i love because i think it spends more time on the kind of non human characters than the other series like in a recent episode. We learned that this kadarshian. Who'd garrick who lives on. The station has been lending capacity literature to the human dr. Julian share so that he can kind of learn more about that culture and we see him every one of these books except this book comes in the form of like a little like a little stick like the size of a pen kind of like a usb stick. Except i went and looked it up on. The usb stick wasn't invented until five years later that's so cool. It's funny because you've rented like this chicken or egg situation where like star trek has future stuff and then this happens but like also the people who make things like this also love star trek. So you start to wonder like did they wanna make this star trek thing real or iino was star trek just sort of like in that wavelength and ahead of its time in a very smart way. They've also got like what star trek communicators which are very much like cellphones right touchscreens. Where a big star trek thing they all have these like little tablets like way before the ipad came out right and siri. They talk to their computers. We talk back to them you know. Do you want to do something. Funny about the usb flash drives specifically hit me. Please say the their about who actually invented it. But the singaporean company that holds the patent for the thumb drive is cold trek two thousand international bats. Incredible it's funny to remember that cutting edge tech companies are also like run by huge dorks. Who loved the stuff i do. And sometimes that's uncomfortable when you have like surveillance companies named after pailin tier which is the lord of the rings thing all gross.

What's Behind the Rise of the Pandemic's Bull Market?

"Year ago today. Us stocks bottomed out but since that pandemic plunged something almost unimaginable happened. Wall street quickly shifted from bear to bull market setting new records along the way under center for serie. We wanted to take a look back to see how we got here and discuss where we might be headed next to do that. I'm joined by the wsj's caitlyn mccabe. She's on the market speed and is well equipped to explain all of this caitlyn. Good morning hi. Thank you so much for having me. So caitlin at the beginning of the pandemic we saw three major stock indexes plummet the s. and p. five hundred fell by thirty four percent in just twenty three trading days now fast forward all three have rebounded strongly. The dow is up around thirty three thousand mark so big picture. What played into this turnaround. Yeah so the. It was an exceptionally fast turnaround. We saw this incredibly steep and quick plunge and then it took just one hundred twenty six trading days to recover back to the february nineteenth closing level where we were before the sell off. That happened coinciding with the covid. Nineteen pandemic so. It was one of the fastest recoveries on record after such a steep plunge and i mean really the the climb back started with investors piling back into growth and tech stocks and that's carried so much of the market upward four the last year since you mentioned tech stocks. It's important to stress. These gains have not been seen across all sectors. Exactly so you know after. We reached this bottom on march. Twenty third twenty twenty. It became pretty clear pretty quickly. That investors were concentrating their money in growth stocks and big tech stocks. And so you saw big gains right off. The bat in what traders liked to call the fang stocks and so that stands for facebook apple amazon netflix in google's parent alphabet which spells out the acronym fang and these companies are so large and they comprise so much of the snp that was helping push the s. and p. five hundred up but you weren't just seeing growth and big tech. You're seeing of course you know Traders really interested in in companies like tesla. You're seeing zoom. You are seeing just all of these growth in tech companies Rising because i mean one simple explanation for it is that they were the companies that were standing to benefit the most from the pandemic shopping online. You had people using cloud computing and you know video messaging software and things like that and so that was really driving the market upward. You know of course. There is from time to time rotations into cyclical stocks and more of your industrials and energy and banks. But it really was for so much of twenty twenty just the growth in tech leading s ahead and then caitlyn more recently. We've seen a stall in us stocks. The nasdaq briefly went into correction territory earlier. This month last week. All three major indexes lost ground. What's going on here. So since the start of the year. We've seen this really steep and swift move up in bonney olds and that's had a ripple effect across the market so the short version is basically that the economy is recovering people are getting vaccinated and investors are really looking ahead to summer or fall where things might be returning back to normal and so of course there have been some concerns of inflation creeping into the market and so that's driven bond yields up which has an impact on assets across the market and so investors have been dumping shares of tech companies Basically because you know higher yields can mean higher borrowing costs for for businesses and higher yields also make investors reevaluate. How much they're willing to pay for. Future earnings and because significant earnings for tech stocks are expected to come in the future. It makes investors basically question how much they're willing to pay for those earnings. So you're seeing investors pullback from tech. You're seeing quite an uptick in energy and banks and and other cyclical stocks so. It's going to be really interesting to see how long lasting trend s and finally kaylin you talk to traders and analysts as a markets reporter. What's peaking your interest for the future. I think we're in this really interesting period in markets. Where right now so much of what's happening in the growth versus value trade is very fundamentals based and people are trying to evaluate the impact that yield will have on tech stocks like i mentioned in growth companies and what that will mean for banks and energy companies and everything that we've talked about so far but then you have this whole other segment of the market that is less connected to fundamentals right now. You know we saw the massive rise in the minimum stocks earlier. This year the game stops the amc's of the world you know we have this ongoing specs craze Cryptocurrency at that market is incredibly interesting. It's just gonna be really interesting because you have these two kind of branches of the markets that are going on right now. Where there's just this euphoria in some segments and then everyone is also trying to drill down this value versus tech trade. So i'm just going to be really interested to see what happens especially in these other segments of the market as we see more interest among retail traders as we see the spac craze probably only going to continue to grow and see what effect that has on the broader market

Tech Giants Cut Commissions It Charges App Developers

"Too big tech companies made a rare concession to developers that do business with them. Operators of mobile phone apps have to pay to get their products seen by customers of apple and google critics say those big tech companies are so powerful. They are like nation states and the charges for mobile phone apps. We're like a tax. Now comes a tax cut apple and google financial supporters of npr which we cover like any companies and here bobby allen reports video game developer derek. More in who runs a company called flow play says. It's daunting to sell his video games for mobile phones. Because apple and google app stores take a big cut in a market where there's a thirty percent fee for just for the platform. This breaks down the pipe to the extent where there's almost nothing left for developers. If you have a smartphone chances are you have to use an app store controlled by apple or google to download stuff. The company say they need to collect a commission on what you buy to support the privacy and security of apps apple and google have defended these fees for more than a decade but now the companies have caved and slash them. You have sort of the reality of this and then you have the optics of this. What mandy nelson of the analytics firm sensory tower means is yes. This is a victory for small app developers who are set to benefit the most but for apple at the end of the day or google at the end of the day. What does is actually meaning to. Their bottom lines is not that substantial. But this was never just about money are coming right in the midst of some serious legal jeopardy for apple and google state and federal. Investigators are probing whether the company's broke the law by allegedly making it hard for rivals to compete with them apple ceo. Tim cook is even scheduled to testify about these fees in a trial next month. So the timing of the fee cuts. That is interesting. Says chris saggers. He's a law. Professor at cleveland state university who studies antitrust issues. I think it probably reflects the sense of the two companies that they're insignificant trouble trouble saker says that extending in all of branch to developers. Right now is not going to do much about. Two firms made an agreement to lower their prices. Only when they're under immense legal pressure doesn't make me think that this market has become competitive that everything is fine more at the sixty two person video game company flow play.

"tech company" Discussed on WSJ Tech News Briefing

"For many tech companies. India is key to continued growth while developed markets are becoming increasingly saturated there over one point. Three billion people in india only about half of whom are online which means there are hundreds of millions of people who have yet to start using email or buying things online but india has increasingly sought to exert more control over the tech giant's setting up shop there which has sometimes resulted in clashes between the companies. And the government. The latest new rules to govern how internet companies like twitter and whatsapp handled problematic content. Online here to talk more about this is tech reporter newly per now. Hey newly thanks for being here. My pleasure okay. So let's start by talking. Broadly about some of the regulations. The indian government has started to implement what we've we been seeing up to now sure we'll over the last few years. As e commerce companies like amazon or as digital services like google and twitter and facebook have become so prominent in india as they are in other countries. You've start to hear bureaucrats talking about the importance of data sovereignty. They call it or the rights of indians to be able to make their grievances against some of these platforms heard or the fact that these behemoths are so dominant and that indian start ups and tech companies haven't really been given to room to breeze the government officials say. And so you started. Hear them talking about the quietly geopolitical reasons. The success that china has had in developing their own tech giant's global tech giants. And so you starting to see moves like tightening of restrictions on ecommerce companies that affect amazon. And the the amazon of india coai flip car which is now owned by walmart. You started to see data. Localization regulation start should be talked about and the now of course these newest rules on social media company. So it's a bit by bit tightening. Where the government seems to be exerting more control over some of these. us tech firms that have been just so dominant. Over the years in india and newly i understand that some of the measures have resulted in a couple of clashes particularly in the last few weeks. Sure will the. The one of the major clashes in recent weeks with twitter was where the government asked the platform to remove a lot of accounts that were tweeting anti-government material amid these long running protests of farmers against the government in new delhi said that they're inflammatory. They're inciting violence. They're trying to foment social unrest. Twitter blocked them unblock them and then under pressure from the government in which they were threatened with having their executives arrested block them again. So you have a twitter or being in the position of saying we respect freedom of speech and people's ability to express political opinions and wanting to enable their us to do that. But then really getting hit with this. Mr very strong pushback from the government so that was a major one and then thursday. Of course we have these these new social media intermediary rules right and let's talk more about those new rules. What prompted them. And what are they meant to do. Well there had been suggestions brewing for some time that the government was looking to revamp what it calls its intermediary rules which are the rules that govern tech platforms and so called over the top or ott players like what's app and streaming platforms like netflix. And so what. They've come out with on. Thursday is a set of rules that set out guidelines for how these large social media companies have to operate so include things like including a grievance officer who's resident in india to address concerns that users or the government might have it includes timelines that tech companies have to keep in mind in responding to some of these issues a code of conduct have ethics for streaming platforms and so essentially. It seems to be the government saying our users should be able to take action or have their their problematic issues address with these platforms. And we wanna make rules really for the first time that make these tech. Companies have to respond more quickly. So how are the tech companies responding to that. What did they say about these new rules so far. They haven't said much you know. Companies of all stripe don't like to be regulated unless they have to be although facebook has said for some time with mounting regulations. Coming around the world that they welcome them but tech observers have said. It's some of these are raised issues worries because they come as prime minister. Modi's government is facing his biggest political test ever in these months-long protests by farmers against some new farming regulations. And and so you've seen the in rhetoric. At least the government getting more aggressive with these companies that are so dominant in india. Many of them have not said much and and they may be waiting to see you know if the political storm passes but they certainly don't want to come out and say well we're not going to do or we're not going to disagree with the government because as we've seen last year india did ban tiktok massively popular platform in india after some clashes in the border region with china. So that was a warning sign. I think to a lot of these companies that india won't hesitate to take drastic action

"Chances are you've changed the way you spend your money. This year from the tech companies have noticed everyone from apple to amazon. Zoom has been experimenting with the way they price their products to try and entice and keep customers joining now to talk about. Some of their strategies is our personal columnists nicola wedding. Hey andy cole. Thanks for being here. We're going to run through the specifics in a minute. But i want to start by asking. Why look at tech. Companies pricing moves this year. What are these decisions. Tell us about the company's cigarette question. I was curious about whether or not the economic downturn prompted by this very unique pandemic would prompt companies to consider new pricing models. Or in what ways would test traditional pricing schemes. And the reason why it's unique is because economic downturns sometimes forces prices down until in this case. No one was flying into some flight. Prices went down some airlines offered. Buy one get two free seats deals. But in other cases prices went up because grocery van was higher because supply chains were in disarray. Because operational costs were higher for places like restaurants so is really interesting. Look at how companies are reacting. To this unique time i think we often think about economics and pricing models as firm that nothing is new and that there are no real experiments and pricing. But the truth is when there is a moment like this one. Nobody really knows how consumers are going to react. And so in a way a lot of these companies conducting experiments and we saw a lot of companies. Take some different approaches to that. So let's run through some of the examples we saw and we'll start with entertainment reminded us how hollywood adjust in the world of closed movie theaters. Obviously it was a huge hit. Two movie theater industry because being locked in a closed room for two hours isn't exactly cove friendly disney to interesting approach. It launched disney plus very recently and that was probably a saving grace for the company because there are lots of areas of the company that were not doing well like parks for example and mulan was. One of its biggest blockbusters this year to two hundred million dollar. Movie is the remake of a classic. A favorite of mine and they decided instead of releasing it exclusively in theaters which is normal to charge thirty dollars for early access to milan with called premier access and it was an interesting move because they were going to charge thirty dollars which is a pretty high price for streaming service as an add on to what you're already paying which is six ninety nine month for disney plus and offer that early access for three months and then make mulan apart of the larger library in december for centrally free included near subscription. So kind of just charging the price that it would cost to go see the movie at the theater but from your couch now. Milan might be a bit of an anomaly. Because of a number of factors including concerns over where the movie was filmed which was in a part of china where the government has been accused of committing some human rights abuses but batted mind. How was milan received the gamble. Pay off it fell flat. Most analysts say because of two reasons one is because there was a lot of controversy around the filming location. The ceo admitted this himself. And the second reason is that the price is really high and instead of framing the premier access price as discount for disney plus subscribers so they could have charged forty dollars for non-subscribers and thirty or twenty five dollars for subscribers to make feel like. You're getting something out of it. You know a deal. The church this premium price too subscribers. So milan didn't quite work out. It sounds like but is this something that streaming services and entertainment more. Broadly make testing. Interestingly disney's biggest rival one of disney's biggest rivals warnermedia decided to release. Its entire twenty. Twenty one slate of films included with hbo. Max not opting for the premiere pricing model and disney's next release which is pixar soul will be included in the disney plus subscription and not as premier. Add on. so you know that sort of indicates that move london. Do super well for disney. But i do suspect that if we are staying away from movie theaters well into twenty one well into twenty twenty two that they will try this again for another blockbuster release maybe with a lower price. Got it okay. So let's move on to apple. They released ton of new products this year and played on what you have dubbed the. Goldilocks effect. Can you tell us what that means. Goldilocks refers to a good better best pricing strategy. So this means you get three options or three buckets of options that represent sort of like the budget the mid tier and then the expensive model for those who have a very high willingness to pave the latest and greatest features apple for a long time has released new models one or two and then discounted previous models older models to sort of represent that good better best strategy so the budget option was always like last year's iphone this year. They released a record number of new iphone models so five in total and actually the budget option is a new phone. That was released this year. So i think what that says about apple said moving forward. They want their entire lineup their new lineup to represent more pricing tiers to appeal to wider swath of people so even those who are willing to spend just a couple hundred bucks at a phone can feel like they're getting a new iphone sort of expanding their addressable market. And as you mentioned. This is a tactic that apple has used since long before the pandemic but is there a reason sort of doubling down on this in a year like this one. Yeah you know. One of the pricing consultants. I talked to says that more pricing tiers kind of a protective measure for some companies apple is a premium brand so they can get away with selling a multi thousand dollar iphone in during an economic downturn but the lower end iphone. se. That's just a couple of hundred bucks you know. Three three between the four hundred bucks allows them to keep the customer that has a tighter budget in their brand. And hopefully that person will upgrade to a more expensive iphone in the future got it and in a similar pricing move. The fitness company peleton introduced another more expensive stationery bike and lowered the price of the existing model by about three hundred fifty dollars. So what fa logic with this move. Eso not exactly good better best because two tiered pricing system. A lot of economists called this committee classic price discrimination where someone who has ohi willingness to pay more features will pay for the very expensive two thousand four hundred ninety five dollar by plus with all the bells and whistles and those are just starting to get into a stationary bike gang but really wanna peleton are willing to pay the eighteen ninety-five price. This one research paper. That i discussed in the peace looked at this williams sonoma case where two hundred seventy five dollar. Red baking appliance wasn't selling at all and then williams sonoma a more expensive model and then the cheaper model. She sales doubled. So you know. Peleton may have been drying from this classic case here we. We don't have exact numbers on its performance but in earnings calls peleton was very bullish on. It's cheaper model and said that it would continue to be its bestselling bike but what happened is during the pandemic people were more willing to pay for premium equipment because it was replacing their gym membership. And so wait times for this. Newer by plus are now up to ten weeks and wait times for the cheaper bike are know almost half that that time so it seems like maybe peleton should have priced. They're more expensive by maybe even higher or maybe they're less expensive lake even more affordable. So i think that brings us to the fourth big pricing strategy. We saw which is this trend of companies dropping walls and generally making more of their product or service accessible for free. You just right into some of what we saw there. Yes so early. On in the pandemic a lot of companies were responding to this very sudden turn towards work from home and being online and not really being able to communicate with with other people in person so zoom for example lifted their forty minute limit for k. Through twelve educators eighteen other service providers lifted data caps. Comcast made its network of xfinity <hes>. Wifi access points free for everyone. You don't need comcast subscription. The list goes on and on what they're sort of taking advantage of is the fact that free is great advertising and free something really miraculous to our brains. Were very persuaded by zero dollars. There is this very famous study of students who had the choice between a one set. Hershey's kiss or twenty six cents lynch truffle and when given that choice most students picked the lynch truffle but when the researchers lowered the price of the hershey's kiss to free and the lynn truffle to just one cent below. Even at the price difference was the same. Most students opted for the free. Hershey's kiss so free has a very strong pull on our psyche and these companies. Think that in offering free services they spread goodwill but they also increase the amount of people who are using their service and the thinking is that potentially those people will pay for other things in the long term. so nike is a good example of this. They made their are trading club app. Free the premium subscription cost some amount of money to be able to work out with their very chiseled very good-looking trainers and <hes>. These trainers are wearing like clothing. And there's a short cut in the app to buy nike apparel and so in making the free <hes>. They're able to sell more naked goods so they're actually making it free permanently. Yes that nike move definitely worked on me but i wonder aside from that. What is the business case for this option. I think i'm still a free user of zoom for instance which is not making them any money. As far as i know we have seen some indications at this early working for some companies zoom was extremely well positioned to do well this year but in making their service free they got more people acquainted with the service and they started rolling out new products like this new pricing page for people like trainers to charge for zoom sessions. And so i think if you're used to using a service you're more willing to hand over your credit card to that service and their revenue shot up. You know something like over three hundred percent this year year over year that may have something to do with the fact that zoom was like the premier video conferencing tool that we all leaned on but also has to do with the fact that they have a really robust free tier that allows most people to use the service without paying for for extra stuff finally we have subscription model and it sounds like the grocery delivery market is a good example of this. Yeah so home. Delivery exploded this year. It allowed people to stay away from grocery stores which all of a sudden became dangerous activity and <hes>. Walmart really capitalized on this moment by offering a subscription service <hes>. It's called walmart. Plus and it includes free unlimited delivery from local stores. The thinking is that it pays for itself interest deliveries walmart says. What's interesting about this example. Is that you know. Walmart really rushed this program out and so they had very scant perks and the program cost ten dollars a so that easiest comparison the laziest comparison is is tames on prime which on top of free unlimited delivery offers you know this giant entertainment bundle free photo storage etc etc until i think it was is hard for people to justify the price between walmart plus and amazon amazon prime. But we don't have numbers for walmart plus yet and it may very well have been a success and walmart plus and amazon prime aim to do the same thing which is try to make walmart or amazon the default shopping choice in her mind and i think walmart plus is a good way for walmart to become more salient in people's minds. And let's just break that down a little bit more. How does the subscription model actually work to create sort of a stickier relationship with consumers. Yeah other examples are dash pass. Switches door dashes new membership tier which lowers delivery and service costs for its customers. These companies are trying to keep switching costs high. So you want to feel like the more you use this service. The more you safe if you delivery cost three dollars typically for every order the more orders you deliver the more you squeeze out of that thirteen dollars. A month subscription so they're trying switching costs high and trying to increase the willingness of customers to buy without thinking are those are the five strategies we said at the beginning that this is sort of a big experiment. So what are the takeaways here. Are there certain hypotheses that are clear winners and losers will i. I think one of the the clear winners is definitely more pricing options for customers. That said can self select into whatever tier. they're most comfortable. Paying and that maybe premium pricing wasn't the right move but the truth is this pandemic is to go on for several more months or potentially another year and <hes>. Pricing changes all the time and in the course of my reporting the story had to change multiple times because the prices kept changing perks. Kept being added onto bundles into it. Seems like companies are still trying to figure this whole thing out as we all are very enough all right. Our personal tech columnist nicole new. Thank you so much for joining me.

"We mentioned this distinction before. But why are companies pulling Hong Kong, but not China with Tiktok for instance they're owned by a Chinese company. Dan's and they've said they'll be leaving. Hong Kong is a market altogether. So, what's that about? Yeah it's an interesting calculus, so it depends on each. On each company so for example for the silicon valley companies like Google and twitter and facebook. There? They they are there. Services don't exist in the same way in some cases, not at all in some ways in limited or various manner in the mainland, and so someone might say well. Why wouldn't they take stand? What do they have to lose? So that's one thing that they have to think about you know I. Think part of it is the global game of perception you know they're under fire in the US from both people on the left and right in the middle for how they're dealing with content and political figures on their platform may have calculated, not only do they want to do right by their users share in terms of their principles, but also it. It doesn't hurt their image to be seen to be standing up to Beijing's increasing power. That's one thing Tiktok, interesting case, obviously, they are a Chinese company so here you have Chinese company in Hong, Kong saying because of these Chinese rules. This has changed things, and we're GONNA. Actually not just stop reviewing requests for us. We're actually GONNA leave. It's unclear what has motivated. That could be that you know as we've reported in some of other stories in months passed a very much want to be seen not as a Chinese company, but as Global Tech Company and they could be calculating that well if the Silicon Valley Titans are making this stand, we should do it, too. So Tick Tock has its own case..

It's kind of like we're living in the twilight zone. Well some people try to shift the facts on the ground and we hear the slate political gabfest or sorting through issues. And even though we don't always agree we're bringing you context and analysis that matters. I'm Emily Brazilan I'm John dickerson. Kherson and I'm David Fox co-host of slates political Gabfest podcast. We don't just help you navigate. Today's unstable political terrain. We'll bring you the kind of informal all in a reverend discussion. That journalists have after hours over drinks subscribed to slate political Gabfest for the beats the fireworks stay for the cocktail chatter. Get the show at Apple podcasts. Or wherever you listen for. Today's show. Oh we asked each of our guests to come in prepared to talk about one company. They picked for the list. Lindsey I want to start with you. What what company are you going to talk about today okay? So I'm going to talk about verizon it and a number of the other biggest telecom companies have just been engaging in the most anti-consumer consumer activity. You can think of for very long time both in lobbying against net neutrality in lobbying against municipal broadband against broadband privacy protections against a strong privacy law and arguing for a week comprehensive federal law. The reason that I wanted to highlight verizon. An peers was because in this reckoning that we're having about kind of the role of these tech companies and the impact they have on their lives and the freedom that they should be able able to have to take advantage of us the telecom companies can often Get short shrift. And it's important to note that not only have they been engaging in in deeply harmful conduct that rises to the level of what we're criticizing with the tech companies. They're trying to be the companies you know got on the list. They're all trying to start their own ad tech networks with the broadband privacy rules the biggest argument that they kept repeating was well. How on earth can you expect us to compete with facebook and Google Verizon Verizon? I don't want you to compete with facebook and Google at violating my privacy. Please stop it. So we're just we're labeling. One thing is tacking deserving of more scrutiny. Rainy and one thing is telecom and deserving less. I think that's what struck me about what you wrote and just sort of thinking about this in the list way is like oh a Telecom that seems so quaint reisen founded. Nineteen eighty-three I don't think that maybe in the public immagination they are counted as tech that companies and certainly not in the tech. Lash moment that right now. Every company's the Tech Company and I think this is an unhelpful distinction distinction when you come to these enormous broadband providers I the one thing that every farner realizes when they moved to the United States. It's his own my God. How expensive is broadband in this country if you You know if you come here from France or career or the UK or basically anywhere else in the planet and your unbelievably fast and reliable and is maybe ten or fifteen dollars a month and you come to the United States and suddenly like sixty seventy dollars awesome you realize the extent of the prophets that these companies are making by dint of their local monopoly status. And there's no the reason why they should have that states as no similar company. Has that status anywhere else in the world. That's a very simple thing that can be done. which is local loop unbundling and what that means means is if verizon has laid fiber optic cable into your house and is selling you broadband over that fiber other people can also sell W. Broadband over that same fiber and then they can compete on price that solves all of these problems at a stroke? Most countries have done it and they you get competition among various different from providers to sell you broadband and people go with the cheapest option because it's the same service it's testament to the power of the lobbying arms of these companies that it hasn't been done here and it's the prophets that they make from those enormous broadband fees allows them to do things like buy Yahu NBC universal any of the other big media companies that they feel like I want to talk about the company that you put on here which is by dance this Chinese startup. Why did you pick one? That was a tiny startup. As opposed to one of the eight hundred pound gorillas the real. Well it is kind of eight hundred pound gorilla in China Maybe I'm just looking at it from far to American view. Yeah I mean it okay. So it's worth with probably closer to one hundred dollars rather than a trillion dollars billion dollars you know. I'm old enough to remember when that was a lot of money. And the thing that strikes me about by Don's is the they An example of what you can do with with a huge Ernie budget into a When you are completely unconstrained by ethical constraints when it comes to bite dance? The list of concerns is extensive especially as more and more. US teens used newsbeat. Dances popular. APP Tick Tock. There's worry about data privacy and censorship. Then there was also the recent news that Tick Tock was developing a feature that used deep fake technology but for Felix. It's they're working. Ai That sets them apart. Tick Tock uses a I in a way that are major social media platforms. Don't it takes granular the alert data. About what music. You like the kinds of videos you watched and even what the people looked like and then shows you content tailored just for you other social networks. Do something similar but nowhere near on this individualized level and Daya taking the. I am very happy to work. Within the communist dictatorship tape China and abide by those rules and use a to create unbelievably compelling. An addictive product says as we know from some lawmakers are worried. Here senator. Josh Holly. The threat isn't just a children's privacy. It's a threat to our national security. We don't I don't know what China can do with this kind of social data in aggregate what it tells China about our society. They can see who we talked to what we talk about where we congregate aggregate what we capture on video. There's been concerned from us. Lawmakers how much of that criticism is valid. How much of that is sort of fear you're of China? And how do we interpret the way. US regulators in US lawmakers look at the capacity of Chinese company company. It's a really good question and ultimately I'm not convinced that by his evil just by dint of being Chinese and tick tock itself has really trying very hard. Say We're not Chinese American which with an American subsidiary of of by all of this little bit beside the point because because all companies Engaged in the same kind of arms race all companies are trying to create increasingly addictive Tiv- APPS and the using Ai to do that and trying to refine the algorithms to maximize the amount of time use inap- and that kind the thing and trying to optimize for variables that shouldn't really be optimized for Republicans perspective metallic. I think just going back to the question around regulation I I know when I was doing the congressional work one of the things I was always really fascinated by was the future that the bill was introduced in Congress in twenty me seventeen but never passed one of its main goals was promoting a as a way to boost. US economic prosperity. An in. It actually states the Priorities of development for the US and the top priority is to capture the business environment just to give you an overview business capture is priority number. One privacy is priority number two future of work is three and then bias is foreign and that was kind of the ladder and it would always be like but we can't allow the Chinese to beat us so it wasn't that they understood the technology it wasn't that they were looking At the impact on society. It wasn't that they necessarily cared or didn't care. How addictive these technologies were right? It was all about if this is going to be a three to eight trillion dollar opportunity. Then how do we make sure. China doesn't get it and and so I would just caution anybody that thinks that in Congress at least last year anybody was sitting down and looking at code or thinking thinking about code. That wasn't the reality it was more about looking at what the financial projections would be. And then how can we add this to the to the US economy going forward Matali in your ranking you talked about alphabet and Google ai capacities and really its dominance in the landscape inskeep and in particular. It's trouble recognizing non white people and what that has done. Tell me about why you wrote about one of the things that really fascinated me eh. In terms of alphabet was just the Pure capture alphabet is everywhere whether you are on online search. You're walking down on a street in a city that considers itself smart. Whether you're watching videos whether you're speaking to a google voice you can effectively use google products products in every single area of your life and the underlying algorithms are going to have problems of bias. Not because Google is a terrible company on the computer. Scientists are racist or anything like that. It's just the fact that they're using society data and our data has inherent biases for example will in two thousand fifteen the image recognition algorithm in Google photos mistakenly and infamously classified black people.

"Auto reply but that's based on your content than you say that tech companies will or do not have the key to okay things michael tritscher set some companies do keep a key or some enterprises to keep you kike because they want their employees for example i be able to secure employees you're doing known is arguing on our side tap tech company she tissue obey court orders if you have the capability if you have a key duplicate key anna court orders you to turnover game over you turn it over some companies don't maintained to pick a key and in that instance they can't comply and with the resolution would if if congress were to adopt the principle in the resolution congress would say oh wenyou you design encryption you must always have a duplicate key or back doorstep ecuador's on so i i you made a good point the tough for some companies having that data is so important that they discourage shut a encryption uh their business model as such they want the data they don't really wants you to encrypted i think at the end of the day though the question is is anybody here comfortable saying we're gonna trust our privacy and our security to them marketing and the technological profitdriven decisions of the tech companies does anybody think they have our interests at heart so i think your comments though raise an interesting point which is what are the market incentives of tech companies and for a lot of purposes tech companies are not going to want to have data encrypted so for example your g mail account isn't encrypted because you're going to want certain functionalities and certain companies are going to want to be able to access the data in order to sell you advertisements for example so i think you need to think about the scope of the encryption problem is being limited because there are a lot of market incentives on the other side that are going to limit the use of this tool of this raises an interesting point goes back to the question to about encryption.
