"Big Tax backing the transition integrity project lacks integrity simply put the entirety of Silicon Valley is working against Donald Trump and Republicans this year Julie Kelley American greatness. I I can't see Joe Right now but I imagine was it shocked face To say, he doesn't have a shocked face. Silicon Valley's working with the left. Do Cost post-election chaos and shut you that shocked face Noncha-. Yeah the least surprising thing you've probably heard all day, but let's diagram out. So you know exactly the connection remember a couple of weeks ago when I covered this. Epic Tier One level loser. Who threatened Michael Anton? Michael, Anton against the guy interviewed who wrote a piece called the coming coup where he diagrammed out the transition integrity project leftist group with the TAT we tied the people tied to George Soros and his money. Funds these leftist groups a lot. But by the way, those are facts with our very comfortable. They are Michael Anton was getting death threats on twitter. One of the guys who implied that he should be killed was this guy nils yeah yeah. Yeah I. Yeah. So Nails e mails guy. So knells worked at this Berggren project thing. So here's Julie. Kelly's piece I'm getting to the ties here between these groups hang in there for a minute is important. Co founder of the transition. Integrity project is tied to big tech progressive activists with deep pockets and a personal vendetta against Donald trump nails nails gilman dairy is never so appropriately named the human being nils means Nilda to me nails. Gilman is vice president the Berggren Institute. A California based think tank established in twenty ten after the financial crisis. The Burger and institute seeks quote Great Transformations to restructure global institutions such as capitalism and democracy. Wow. Sounds like a Marxist group there at a star-studded Gala New York City last December there's Berggren. Group. Awarded it's one million dollar annual prize to the late Ruth Bader GINSBURG. We know where politics are which is okay. It's not your again I I am. As a CO, owner of a Social Media Titan I'm proud to say. We don't censor our people and we let liberal ideas go. So now we've established that Nils Gilman who is involved with transition integrity project calling for a street fight after the election if trump wins not illegal one again, their words not mine. This Berggren Institute where he's also associated with also has some very suspicious ties to big tech tides. Here it is. Folks follow the money everywhere. So who's one of the TECH TITANS INVOLVED WITH? Well, let's go to the screen shot from the peace. So you can read it for yourself board members of the Bergen Institute include. Reid Hoffman the CO founder of linked in. The fifty-three-year-old is worth a cool two billion a nice chunk of change and is a top sugar daddy of the Democratic anti-trump resistance according to one report. He offered a five million dollar reward for anyone who could produce Donald Trump's tax returns during the two thousand sixteen election. Okay. There's Lincoln Guy. Link Guy Bergman Institute Nils Gilman. Death. Threats Michael Anton exposes the coup. Berggren Institute. Transition. Integrity Project streetfight after the election trump wins and who's associated with them. Gosh. The Lincoln. Guy Shocker. You may be saying Gosh as we said, then as I always I know the listeners and there had been like, surely you've got more of course surely have got more because I've always got. Or should I say Julia has more from the article so let's go to screen shot to. Eric bad former CEO and chairman of Google Gosh. What's he have to do with that? The longtime democratic activist and donors where seventeen billion? The. Tycoon recently blamed the president for people dying unnecessarily from covid nineteen because people didn't socially distance or wear masks even though most Americans have abided by that advice for more than six months, these guys egon gone out recently smits everybody with masks almost everywhere. Google Youtube. Now, you see why are videos on Youtube? are constantly crushed de monetize. And Small Business Association with Youtube now fiery competitor rumble. What an appropriately named company rumble we like that yeah. Pala gave me the fighting rock them sock and robots over there. And we're doing very well at rumble. Because people hate youtube too. Because of leftist activists involved with it. You may say, Gosh, linked in Google involved with this Bergman Institute involve with the coup after the election surely that's enough no. Surely not there's more. This is just a small snapshot by the way. Or a snapchat let's check this out screen shot number three, Evan Spiegel founder of snapchat. This guy's only thirty, the thirty year old husband of actress Miranda Kerr I don't know Maroon either is worth four, point five, million, a billion, a billion excuse me million who've assets? That's his food bill every snap chats one of the most popular social media platforms for Teens and young adults with about two hundred thirty million monthly users Spiegel announced in November the company will fact check all political ads? So they're on the board. This guy of the Berggruen Institute the same institute that houses a guy who co-founded the transition integrity project calling for street fight after the election are these tech titans being put on the record if they support a street fighter out I'm just asking for the media folks out there I know you're not real journalists I get that but maybe for a moment in a sincere act of astonishing journalistic integrity, it would be a good idea to call these companies and get their PR departments on the phone and go hey, listen you know you're associated with this Burger institute associated with a guy who's running a project calling for a street fight after the election do you guys endorse that idea? Or maybe they should do what the media the trump joe here's a crazy idea. Maybe you should denounce that and until they denounce it if you don't announce that you support it, you know we can look it up on socialist media. You're not gonNA find anything because this thing will get buried tomorrow just like this video will be democratized by Youtube therefore, I always ask you please. Don't watch it on Youtube go to rumble dot com slash Bongino and watching their. Folks I lose money by telling you that I get I want to go to rumble. Not Interested in.

Microsoft says it is still talking with Trump about buying TikTok from its Chinese owner

"Microsoft just released a blog and their site that says Microsoft continue discussions on potential tiktok purchase in the US following a conversation between Microsoft CEO and the President Microsoft is prepared to continue discussions explorer per just Oh. Oh so I would like maybe you should talk to them again. Don't. Talk about mixed nutty mixed signals been a long weekend for TIKTOK and Microsoft. So the president called and said such go ahead by. Something like that. There was a great piece in the Wall Street Journal saying does Microsoft WanNa get in this mess? I mean that's honest. The question. I. Can't imagine that Microsoft. I think the most notable examples that it was a it wasn't a Microsoft wasn't one of the four companies at the hearing on. Wednesday.

"I mean, it's not like you're volunteering. It's a job. The government can pay up to one hundred and sixty, five, thousand dollars a year. So I mean yeah. It's you know if you're GS fifteen ten which is welcomed acronyms who you know you learn on the Krems it is absolutely possible to make enough for a living wage. You know it it's you know that's good salary. Like there's a lot of people who start at a much lower salary because of all the experience and the value that you bring up the government can pay its top rate for for general service sort of employees and then, and then like you joked whenever I would not come on this week in Google that I was colonel cuts when I started at the Pentagon, I was the equivalent of six like I was a colonel. Industry, you know experience and so it really does make a big difference. People don't have this technical experience and the government do they call you colonel? No to wear. Salute you. Know no I'm I'm an administrator. Here, but it's now mysteries are important. Don't knock administrators we need the administrators. and. Maybe you could get on space force later. Can I tell you? We have a person who is involved with the US digital service who is in the strategic group, force base for us if you're interested in space for us come talk to us. Let's. Let's introduce you to know I would. Know needs you. Yes. Wouldn't that be cool. No one needs you more now more than ever. There's a few CORTANA. Engineers who probably could find some. Need some help right now, Microsoft is ending support for Cortana Mobile. Yeah, those I have I can add another i. have a pile of stuff that doesn't work anymore including my Gebo robot. Now, I'm going to add my harmon. Cardon. speaker that uses Cortana early next year. It'll stop responding. Cortana is turning into something completely different. It's It's more kind of Kinda happened to bixby. Oh, big old. Dixie bixby came essentially an assistant to use Samsung phones with Cortana is going to be a productivity assistant kind of like. The voice clip he to be honest all cows bixby's seems like a name for a sentient, a paper clip out. You wouldn't WanNa give human human that name would you? Yeah. So Cortana it somebody call me a couple of weeks ago and the radio show and what happened voice assistance. Like, wasn't that going to be the next big thing. And they've just pl-. Series give me the next to go. Right bixby. Cortana. Series to be the next to go Amazon and Google GonNA fight it out but they don't seem to make much progress. They're just a joke now. Has Ears and not enough people have headphones I mean maybe being in quarantine might be better because you could use a personal assistant and not. Immediately annoy everyone in your surrounding area or office That's the problem. That's the problem. Isn't it? and. Now, when I do it I always kind of do this surreptitious Siri, which is you just press the button and you talk real low voice. Won The World Series In nineteen twenty eight just real voice. Whisper. But here's something I found on the web. Let's talk about since we're talking about the cyber. Let's talk about the election. I don't know if. Yes. If this is yeah, heard there's maybe going to be one of them I don't know. Could be later could be later. Could be next year I don't know should happen. Some people say twenty, twenty eight we don't know. There is A. New Election Cybersex actually asked you about this map before this show. Combination of words I've ever heard election cyber surge to deploy. Hacker. Army for twenty, twenty vote. This is out of the University of Chicago. They are starting to pair up security experts with look you know the elections, one of the things interesting about US elections they're all local right brandon, they're not the whole thing. Yeah it's all run out of the state in the county. And the, it's one of the things that makes us harder to hack because it's so heterogeneous everybody. Things. I did when I. Went to turn in my papers on like when you're when you're candidate, you've gotta get enough signatures to get on the ballot and from when I was a journalist I always found the most valuable person. Now when you're reporting on town affairs, is the the county clerk or the circuit people in that office. Documents I was like. This seems like this should be a valuable person to know show. So I took a day and I went to every single place in my district. Signatures so smart, but this is the scary part so I could not help but notice while I was there the kind of hardware that they had in the office and it was a variety of operating systems. They had passwords taped right above it where you just see it standing in the window they had machines are on windows ninety five and if you're trying to this is Massachusetts like we are one of the richer states in America and it was a horrible horrible terrifying mess so. You could get a million like hacker armies. We're still GONNA really have issues here. Who Pays is the county that pays for the elections. Do they get federal funding So. Like I. Yeah, there's like help vote America. Help America vote. ACT HAVE A. Thing that paid for a lot of election staff but it's also true that there's a lot. There's actually a startup called boating works is trying to get certified as sort of this super low cost nonpartisan secure voting platform That's basically kind of using off the shelf hardware, but it's it's a patchwork. You've got machines that are really old in some cases well, and then the money's stretched because now we've gotta do vote by mail we've gotta do. social distancing voting I. mean there's a lot more expenses which pulls money away from things like security updating systems It's it's it's kind of it. It's not going to be good I feel like. and of course, the president is doing everything he can to undermine. The notion of a free and fair election he he would really like everybody to think that because I think he sees the writing on the wall and he would really like everybody to think that when he loses, he didn't really lose. So, that's not gonNA help. I just feel like we're headed. We're headed in a bad direction does a USDA to any elections. So most of most at the federal level and we're mostly federal that at D. H. S. They have the it's the cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency Sosa, and so they they provide various assistance and things along those lines. So we've we've said we'd be happy to help if we can an and so we're we stand at the ready. If there's anything we can do but mostly that's home security and I would guess that's why this election cyber search coming out of the University of Chicago because they wanted to spach people to localities help the states and local jurisdictions direct. So if you want to be an cyber surge volunteer. You can actually go online. To, Cyprus, urge me in they're using a google doc for this. Already, you can sign up. Oh, here's a good question though have you attended the? DEFCON voting, village. I noticed that that's good. That's a good like, yes. No, you have. Then they're probably interested in you. So yeah. Yeah. Well, that would show at least some interest in this topic. is, your handle Kirk or rolex. Have at least twelve letters in your twitter. On, yeah right. There is another area where Whitehouse's actually and this is kind of a little small part of the federal budget but they're actually causing some problems in the Internet there is something called the Open Technology Fund..

Trump wants to ban Tik Tok

"Actually let's talk a little bit about Tick Tock today I performed this morning. An Act of rebellion. I downloaded installation talk on my iphone because who knows how much longer I'll be able to do it it's very confusing I don't know what's going on. Tick Tock, which is owned by the Chinese company Bite Dance Safest that committee. Or foreign investment in the United. States apparently is investigating I. Think they actually issued a ruling saying that like, wow away tick tock was a threat to the United States One of the ways tiktok became really big as by acquiring a couple years ago musically, which is really I think from what I see on. tiktok kind of the backbone of what Tick Tock is these days, which is lip synching or acting or dancing to an original track It's it's very entertaining. It's a it's probably the most engaging social network out there. But apparently, it's a threat to our way of life. On Friday the president on Air Force One. said that he was about to ban it as soon as yesterday. From the United States I'm not sure under what law safest can do it I think. But I don't know if the president can by executive order banning application. then for the last week Microsoft Been. Negotiating to buy the American rights to talk to kind of create a tick tick Tock America that would be separate from the Chinese bite. Dance. TIKTOK. But then the president says I'M GONNA ban it but I don't want anybody to buy it. So, micro-. Microsoft said. Threw their hands off and said figure it out and there. They didn't end the conversation with bite dance. Apparently, they were fairly close but they're not forwarding it until they find out what happens I'm GonNa make a prediction. Nothing is going to happen except now people are going to download and use TIKTOK. Brianna is tick tock a threat to national security. It's not a unique threat to national security. We need to have a conversation about the kinds of information social media APPS are able to download from our phones. We all remember the scandals of facebook on android downloading your tire phone list gang everyone you've ever called. We need to have a conversation about that, but there's there's really no evidence that what Tiktok is pulling is any greater than what you know facebook instagram these other social media sites are. Pulling so far. So we need a wider discussion about that. How's it just want to say I wish I could tell you this was just trump in the Republicans that would make me very happy. My heart broke today to see Chuck Schumer on the Sunday morning shows advocating the same thing tech talk. So you know it's it is we need to have a conversation about national security and the amount of information were giving up but it's I think. To just focus on TIKTOK. Sign of. Phobia. Or Zena Phobia Paris, you seem like a Tiktok user. I that's only because you're younger than. I. Did recently re downloaded when this whole. Wanted to make sure that I had it. I'm sure is a common response. I agree with everything the Brown said in the sense that I don't know I've been particularly disturbed by. The reactions to take talks, data collection both from the left and right and just. Experts in the tech field generally over the past couple of months because it is definitely coming from a place of seeing phobia. I mean, we have so many different. American. Made APPS that. Do many of the same things I mean one thing that I've seen noted quite often as to talk has the ability to see what you've. You know copied near Clipboard when guests so do most of the apps you have on your phone. Is Operatives. It's not a tiktok specific problem. This came up because of Iowa's fourteen, which is in public Beta now so people are suddenly using it and dozens of applications. I. Think must be a library that they all subscribe to infect somebody a couple of weeks ago. Somebody told me that it was. Ad Library I use of what a clearly noninvasive program from panic software Call Code editor, which lets me log into my Server. with SSh and and edit files and things like that and it was. I got the same thing that you get on Iowa's fourteen O, coders looking clipboard every time I typed to character. Now I don't think coded only panic software famous for an FTP program and this H. Program is at spying on me obviously, they're not. they're using the same code library. So it's a, it's a, it's a bug. That's what Lincoln Microsoft's linked in said as well. So. I think it's also just one of those things where if you're building an APP especially in. The Tom I. Don't know there was a time when absence of for being built were there wasn't this conversation about security and privacy. Why would map designers not take the position of? Yeah. All the things maybe we'll need that information talk said quite credibly. We're just looking to see if you put a url on your clipboard so we can pasted in. That seems credible I. Don't know if you need to do it every single time I type of character that seems like more that book I can tell you firsthand from developing an Iowa it's often easiest just to get it submitted to the APP store to take a bunch of permissions and It's just it's like you're trying to debugging in. Store, to accept it is just quirky. I can't tell you how many times I in other APP developers have. Just it's a very, very quirky system. So I, think this is just in Beta. I think it's really important to point out as far as the impetus for this I personally do not think it's a coincidence that tiktok was widely credited for disrupting trump's Tulsa rally a couple of weeks ago and Sarah Cooper is so famous for she's making five star she's she's amazing and those videos are brutal to trump and I I don't. That's a coincidence. She does trump limps licks lip sync. And I was talking to a friend said you know is the trump on TV I can't understand what he's saying but then I watched Cooper and that makes sense Sarah ads expressions and Gestures and all kinds of makes sense all of us and so I don't think the president should be so quick to to not like Sarah purchase he's adding context Might have something to do with it certainly in his mind because we know. You know. I don't know what he's going to do to Cape Pop stands because they were the other the other group that apparently figured out that you could register took on trump's team has got to be wise enough to know you can't take on the capons stands. Being. The capon stands the United States would crumble. Yes. That would be it would be over right. You just can't win against the K pop stands So. They were both advocating people sign up for the Tulsa Rally and not not show and Honestly the fault lies with Brad Par Scout trump's former campaign manager and his campaign team for believing all those registrations and building a giant outdoor stage. Giant parking lot so that the millions of people who are going to be coming because they all registered would have somewhere to be, and then I loved. Well, I shouldn't say that that sounds partisan was interesting to see the one person with the baby stroller in that giant area and the rest of the arena half full or third full So I could see why he might be a little angry about that. Is there. No, Matt. And I'm not putting you in the position of speaking for the government I want to say that in fact, we should have said that. That Nazi for the. Federal government but you also having worked Akiko Google you understand how you know a little bit about how this stuff works the the there's not any proof that while way for instance, has ever done anything. Particularly Evil they've done some commercial espionage apparently, but nothing could particularly evil but there's the potential if they run the entire five G. Network that at some point, they could inject malicious software to the network or shut it down. Is What could Even even sounds stupid asking it. What could take time do? It's the forbidden APP. If you think about it if you don't have it on your phone, it could disappear at any time. No I think it's it's less about that although you do see companies like Amazon saying, Hey, on your work phone or work device please don't install. And they did it. Because they realize Oh we do business with these guys. Let's not this them off but wells Fargo did that I think the Department of Defense I don't know about you sds, but it's reasonable if you've got a company phone. Probably shouldn't have facebook or instagram on it either you right? Yeah. I keep my twitter and all that stuff very far away from work phone. It's my it's my personal account, but you know it's I can understand why people want to have just a a sense of okay. Let's be careful. Let's see what's going on and then You know just making sure that you can depend on the. Tools all the way down reflections on trusting trust. You can put things into a compiler, which then you can remove it from the source code and turns out that thing can stay in the compiler for years and years and years. So you know you don't WanNa be load bearing on any particular technology that you can't quite vouch for his guesses what people are thinking, what would be the legal? How could a president ban an APP in the United States I was thinking about this in the one thing the United States government is very effective at is We we we went after Isis in I sell at a very effective way instead of this Ip address to a recruitment site you can't access it. So my my guess would be the executive order would basically grafter the ISP's and say you can't go to this particular ISP but think about that I know of VPN products is sponsor show sponsored mind and to know how few seconds would take the average teenager together VPN account to just keep their tiktok going. Yesterday I downloaded the tiktok cap the first video that came up credit account 'cause I forgot my previous password was a if Tiktok it's banned. Here's how to get around it. You don't Vpn you can go into the settings, your phone, change your country of origin to Canada and then You're great. Exactly I mean it's not enforceable basically So I mean one thing Leo I think. Matt and I would probably agree that we do need to. I don't know if it's more oversight from the point of sale like on the APP store or Google play I I don't know if it's kind of an External Code audit policy for these kinds of APPs on their own by countries I. Think we agree we we need more oversight and we need to make sure all of these are not stealing data from people and just to get people very brief history lesson you know Edward Snowden had some very serious allegations about our own spying agencies using. Facebook to gather intelligence on people all around the world there's evidence for that. There's no hard evidence at this point the Tiktok is doing any of this. So if we're serious about doing this, the answer isn't to further balkanize the United States from the rest of the world the answers to form coalitions with other countries say look if you're going to operate here in, you know if you're gonNA have the software operating in our country here, the rule you have to follow you can't just arbitrarily download people's Phone books, there's going to be You know civil fights. That's clearly the way to go is got to be bigger than just tiktok. I'm just looking at Tick Tock on my iphone. It has access to my photos because I gave it access to my photo so I could put a profile picture on there. it gives me notifications I could turn that off. That's that's a push though that's not a poll. Background APP refresh means it can run in the background and cellular data doesn't ask for. location data doesn't ask for I mean facebook asks for ten times more. That's why I don't have it on my phone. I. mean the worst thing Tiktok does is waste millions of hours a productivity, and maybe that's a recent ban I don't know. But I, just I don't understand how it could be used. If it's not getting location permissions, how could it be used maliciously and I think it is getting location position. I know that I've know anecdotally at least from a couple of friends whenever they let's say go to Connecticut to visit family or something they will suddenly get Connecticut. Themed Tiktok content or something similar. Okay. that could just be from. Connection you can get that from the IP address so they could get a Geo location through IP address without asking APP without telling apple that they're doing that that would make sense. Okay. So they're getting them. Every cannon probably, I hate to say it probably does do that.

Don't know if you need to do it every single time I type of character that seems like more that book I can tell you firsthand from developing an Iowa it's often easiest just to get it submitted to the APP store to take a bunch of permissions and It's just it's like you're trying to debugging in. Store, to accept it is just quirky. I can't tell you how many times I in other APP developers have. Just it's a very, very quirky system. So I, think this is just in Beta. I think it's really important to point out as far as the impetus for this I personally do not think it's a coincidence that tiktok was widely credited for disrupting trump's Tulsa rally a couple of weeks ago and Sarah Cooper is so famous for she's making five star she's she's amazing and those videos are brutal to trump and I I don't. That's a coincidence. She does trump limps licks lip sync. And I was talking to a friend said you know is the trump on TV I can't understand what he's saying but then I watched Cooper and that makes sense Sarah ads expressions and Gestures and all kinds of makes sense all of us and so I don't think the president should be so quick to to not like Sarah purchase he's adding context Might have something to do with it certainly in his mind because we know. You know. I don't know what he's going to do to Cape Pop stands because they were the other the other group that apparently figured out that you could register took on trump's team has got to be wise enough to know you can't take on the capons stands.

Are Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google Too Big?

"Four titans of Tech are expected to testify virtually to the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust. Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google soon dark pitch high here to preview this star studded panel is our own star needs. Rachel Myrow, senior editor of Our Silicon Valley News desk. Hello, Rachel. Shocks. Hello, Brian. Just for context. Here is a challenge for the two of us who both worked at market place back in the day. Can you tell us how big these companies are without using a dollar figure Using a dollar figure? Okay. Facebook has roughly three billion with a B users across various social platforms. That's user numbers figure. Amazon controls 38% of US online sales. Wal Mart, For contrast, is Amazon's nearest competitors, not even 6% like not even in the game. Google process is about 90% of Web searches globally Apples APP store. You're there. You're nowhere in the apple universe. They take a 30% cut. 30%. Brian. Wow. You did it all right. Four very different companies. Four key parts of modern life and that raises for different sets of antitrust concerns, right It does indeed, And that face is big questions about what lawmakers hoped to accomplish with this hearing today, right? I mean, even though all of them are reportedly targets of probes by the Justice Department Coalition of State attorneys general, we could take all day talking about any one of these tech titans. All right. So let's pick one. Okay, I'll pick one. Amazon. You're a prime member, right? Yeah, me and just about everybody else in America. If I make and or market a product, I have to be on Amazon to sell it to America, and I have to pop up early in the rankings. When American shoppers search for my thing I have to pay Amazon to make that happen. Amazon, by the way, has been known to copy and prioritize marketing. Of its name brand version of popular third party products otherwise known as stealing or counterfeiting. Amazon also criticized for failing to shut down other counterfeiters. Let's say somebody else who shouldn't be making my product is making it and according to the Wall Street Journal fairly recently Amazon's venture capital fund steals ideas from tech start ups that pitch to it, So that's just a short list of things Amazon critics have to say about that company. Wow. So back to this question of why the House Judiciary subcommittee is holding this meeting today. Officially, it caps a big investigation. More than 1.3 million documents gathered. Yes, indeed. And I had to tell Brian it is anybody's guess. How much time Will actually be spent on that investigation. Despite that number of documents as opposed to the other hot, we hate tech topics like election security, hate speech and political bias. Wow. Well, Rachel, thank you. You bet. Cheese.

Pinterest's Shares Fall; Smartphone's Focus Fails

"A I blockchain smart cities, the digital transformation happening now makes the seemingly impossible doable at Deloitte, we help clients, harnesses, powerful technologies to improve business and the world Deloitte dot com slash look. Again. This is tech news briefing. Im Tanya boost, does reporting from the newsroom in New York coming up a look at the journals feature on how smartphones sabotage your brain's ability to focus, making sense of the science of distractions after these tech had lines. Shares of Pinterest plunged in extended trading after the company posted a wider than expected loss in its first quarterly report following its public market debut. The drop makes Pinterest the latest tech company to encounter difficulty not long after a much anticipated public offering Pinterest shares were off more than fifteen percent, late Thursday afternoon. The stock finished up eight percent in regular trading. Thursday closing out at thirty dollars and eighty six cents. Sixty two percent higher than its nineteen dollars a share initial public, offering price Tesla's driver assistance, feature was active and the driver's hands weren't detected on the wheel during a fatal crash in March, that's according to US safety. Investigators announcement on Thursday, a finding that could amp up scrutiny for the carmakers autopilot system as the company pushes. For more automation in vehicles data taken from a model threes. Sedan that crashed in Florida showed the driver hadn't touched the steering wheel in the seconds leading up to the incident and made no effort to avoid the collision, this is according to the National Transportation Safety board's preliminary investigation. The agency will continue to work to determine the probable cause for the incident. Stay up to date with the latest at WSJ dot com. And Microsoft and Sony are teaming up to work on cloud and game streaming tech and unusual partnership between two longtime rivals. However, they face new threats from some of the biggest tech names in the industry. So through a partnership, Sony is considering using Microsoft's cloud service for streaming. It's game content. It also calls for potential collaboration involving Microsoft's artificial intelligence and Sony's image sensor chips. This all comes as Sony, and Microsoft face competition from the likes of Amazon and alphabets Google to cloud tech. Titans looking to take a bite out of the one hundred and thirty billion dollar and growing video game industry coming up our smartphones messing up your brain's ability to focus. Yup. Science explains it after this blockchain smart cities, the digital transformation happening. Now makes the seemingly impossible doable, a Deloitte, we help clients harnesses power. Awful technologies to improve business and the world Deloitte dot com slash look. Again. If there's one thing we can say about our smartphones is that they give us instant gratification. But at what cost, perhaps an alarming loss of attention in productivity, Daniella, Hernandez, the Wall Street Journal's digital science editor explains the science to back this up, when we face distractions to areas of the brain, the parietal, cortex, and the frontal cortex, or in a sort of tug of war with each other some research suggests that the parietal cortex responds to distractions, the frontal cortex, which is involved in cognitively, demanding tasks helps us maintain focus so we get distracted, if the activity of the parietal cortex gets through to the frontal cortex, the frontal cortex can keep the parietal in check you stay focused, the brain is deciding what's important. And what's not? Oh, sorry cost. It in Kuslav professor at Georgetown University explains our struggle with paying attention attention, much like your daily allowance of money is a limited resource and in any particular moments. You can only have that much of it, even when you're cleaning your mailbox and you're not actually doing hard cognitive work. You kinda actually are because there's all these essentially micro-decisions looking at this Email, do I need this? And so each of those decision requires a little bit more of cognitive effort. And so, but when you add two thousand of those you end up with no no power to make any other important decisions after that you feel depleted Georgetown university's. Recent study on Email further explains. The. Emotional struggle. Checking Email more frequently throughout the day was associated with feeling more stressed and overwhelmed. We've found that people who batch te their emails, three to five times a day felt less trust and less overwhelmed. And as does most technology today, it opens up a conversation about how it's changing how we interact socially on a grander scale. We did a study not in an organization, but on campus where we ask students to find a building either with their phones or without the help of their phones. And yes, the students who relied on their phones, got to the building faster. But these same students actually felt less connected to their community. And so it's not a question of, you know, should be just do away with this devices. But what is the price of this convenient device? These social bonds that hold society together, I think, getting more and more chipped away from us.

"Not that concerned about it shares of microsoft have risen more than forty percent over the past year so maybe that's why wall street shrugged after microsoft's third quarter revenue came in just shy of twenty seven billion dollars jason and cloud continues to get it done for them yeah i mean you have to really love what's the nfl is doing for this business i mean he was such a great hire at such a pivotal time for this company cloud as you mentioned remains big opportunity and i think that makes sense given the company's installed days on the enterprise side they continue to grow the business across all three main business segments big opportunities in gaming obviously we see microsoft every day in some shape or form and i think if there's one place one area where i think microsoft is weak and and i think this is really probably the only place it's mobile right and i mean you don't see mobile really anywhere in their releases they only mention the word five times in the conference call and even those five times essentially meaningless and that's problem in a mobile world right so when we talk about these companies that are growing so fast the first company to a trillion dollar market kaffir example i mean it's not saying microsoft couldn't get there but they're going to have a really hard time if mobile's not a part of that strategy in so when you put them up to companies like amazon and alphabet i mean the growth rates speak for themselves i mean microsoft isn't keeping anywhere close to the pace that those tech giants are even though they're they're investing at that same pace so good quarter good business just just you know it's difficult difficult space to keep a to keep any sort of sustainable competitive advantage aren't real quick before wrapup since you mentioned the race to a trillion dollar market cap we've got microsoft and google just over seven hundred billion amazon around seven hundred thirty five billion oh yeah there's apple eight hundred twenty billion who you picking in this race david apple has a head start i'll go with them i've been consistent with amazon i'm sticking with it i've been inconsistent.

"No problem it's all in the past and your point now as berg indicated right at the start of the call no they are going to be hiring hundreds if not thousands of people they're going to be spending a lot more money it's not showing up in this quarter it's going to be showing up in the quarters to come yeah this particular quarter i think only included about ten days after that cameras in a loco scandal broke so we'll definitely be seeing more of that in the second third and fourth quarters this year but i i completely agree with jeff i mean facebook accelerated revenue growth and their margins expanded this quarter so they have plenty of cushion to digest any expense increases that are expected to come this year the balance sheet is incredibly strong free cash flow grew thirty three percent to five billion dollars this quarter so so i think they they they can handle the the increase in expenses and i also noticed they rolled out a national marketing campaign watching them mba playoffs and low behold saw couple of ads for for facebook papa meanwhile they're committed to improving the user experience on the site as well even if that means again that you spend less time on the site they want it to be more valuable to you and they're ready for the general data protection regulation that rolls out in the eu on may twenty fifth and if it works as hoped they may just use that universally or at least the best parts of it around the world and that is a little bit of a question mark though they don't know if those regulations will ding ad sales in europe but there.

"But we have some bigger issues to fish to fry but to the cash balance the other running at a twenty billion dollar a year free cash flow run rate right now shares traded about twenty five times that projected free cash flow the sales numbers sales were up forty nine percent daily active users rep thirteen percent to one point four five billion monthly also up thirteen percent to two point two billion monthly active users my overall takeaway even though expenses are expected to rise the rest of the year up as much as fifty to sixty percent is that i still like owning the stock i would still be a buyer of the stock the shares are inexpensive the platform is proving extremely sticky there only still scratching the surface on at revenue facebook for example has forty five billion in annual sales almost all of it advertising google has nearly one hundred and twenty billion in annual mostly advertising sales so meanwhile the market just keeps growing larger and larger and facebook is taking more share the ads are becoming more effective that did make a point that advertisers have not left that they do not ever sell your data the advertisers can target you but they don't know who you are so there and i think they're taking all the right steps i sure hope to to make people trust facebook again i'm glad you mentioned the spending that is coming later this year because i noticed in the media coverage immediately after the release was dropped in terms of what their earnings report was some of the reaction was see the cambridge analytica stuff.

"Yeah that sounds pretty good yeah revenue this quarter up twenty six percent and just i mean as jeff mentioned that this is a company worth around seven hundred thirty billion dollars to be growing revenue that pace is incredible earnings per share also up twenty eight percent companies sitting on close to ninety eight billion dollars in net cash and that's after spending five billion dollars on rnd this quarter alone seven billion dollars on capital expenditures so the company still has to find something to spend that money on but they continued to heavily reinvest back into the business i think youtube also represents a really interesting opportunity one initiative that they are rolling out this starting this quarter is something called youtube director that'll be expanded to over one hundred seventy cities in the us and that really gives small and mid sized businesses access to professional filmmakers who for no charge will create an edit video ads for youtube so really investing heavily into that video advertising space we talk a lot about this space and really the leaders in it facebook obviously one alphabet one we get the question a lot which one would you rather own for the next five years ten years later i can't help it lean towards alphabet in this case because i feel like in five years search is only going to become more more valuable it's going to become more useful and obviously that's what google's forte is not to mention the fact that youtube is such a phenomenal property like david was saying i feel like facebook right now is really trying to figure out how to sort of take that next leap beyond just social networking because that may not necessarily be as useful for people in the coming five years in beyond well in that vein my my main concern with alphabet would be voice search taken on more and more search share and how do they monetize that but i i like both companies and facebook which we'll talk about today as well.

"Eighteen wheel trucks on the road these days yep they're building that out and it's crazy with about one hundred million prime members which jeff bezos unveiled in the shareholder letter a few weeks ago and raising the prime membership by twenty dollars i means about pretty much two billion dollars a pure profit added to the bottom line so not too shabby when you have a subscription business with high retention rates and i think it's also important to remember that we still haven't lapped the whole foods acquisitions so the the revenue growth that we're seeing is kind of artificially boosted by that whole foods acquisition but i think we're still obviously in the very early stages of rolling out that online grocery delivery right now in the us online grocery sales still make up just about three percent of the total grocery market i think whole foods and amazon combined are in a great position to bump that percentage up you know there was the story over a year ago about the grocery store that amazon was developing in seattle where basically you wouldn't have to go through the checkout it would all be linked to your prime account they'd use near near field technology where is that is that like is that coming should we expect that to be rolled out into whole foods or was that just an interesting test that needs a lot more work i think it's an interesting test is probably technology that needs to be perfected i'm a little bit more enthralled with the personal robot efforts i don't know if he's sign about this but it sounds like in about a year they may be taking us one step closer to the rise of the machines chris oh be afraid be very afraid mardi different alphabet is spending more money but that's okay because they're also making more money alphabet first quarter profits came in just shy of nine and a half billion dollars david that has really some serious cake.

"It was just a couple of years ago i mean in regard to the quarter what's to say it seems like this was really just more of the same and for a company this size to be growing it's top line at those rates is really nothing short of phenomenal and there's really no reason to think it shouldn't continue they they've guided for this current quarter for just under forty percent top line growth at the mid point their operating margins for the quarter were up across the board amazon web services is operating on a twenty two billion dollar run rate at this point i mean under the radar there they have a multibillion dollar adv business to boot in in so i think they're just a lot of different ways for this business to win a lot of headlines they're reasonably in regard to president trump and the post office and whatnot if you think that's going to have some sort of an impact on this business i just advise you to lay off the hash pipe in think about this for a second if the post office loses amazon's business their business goes from bad to worse there's no reason to think that that's going to happen if anything the post office needs more amazon just like we need more kabil chris yeah the market's sees a lot of opportunity ahead to jason they just priced amazon at above seven hundred and thirty billion dollars the company has a whole making it larger just a bit larger than microsoft and alphabet and with good reason the all the revenue streams that jason just touched on are all grown strongly some of them are very high margin including the advertising business and just incidentally i saw a prime air gems at the baltimore washington airport the other day and it's a slick in the airplane.
