Happy you came into it and you went hot on biden or used to be joe biden on the trader million.

We Must Own Our Complicity in Afghanistan
"The united states shame right over its precipitous sprint out of afghanistan shadow this country's conscience for generation every horror story and they will keep coming is partly the result of our decision to bug out the death and destruction that occur in previously secure parts of that country will be on the bipartisan decision to exit the fiasco of president biden ordered quick march out of the country with its arbitrary deadline and false proclamations of the heroic airline effort. Airlift effort will garner the most shame but barack obama and donald trump all wanted the same thing they wanted out to all three presidents lacked. What abraham lincoln possessed and george w bush often display the strenght to shoulder. The suffering of war brought home in dead and wounded. Young soldiers sailors airmen and marines the country. Tired of it too. We do not have the ability to fight a long war. Even with minimal casualties be because for us. There is no such thing as a minimal casualty. We can take station troops on board. We peacekeeping missions in kosovo but we cannot endlessly endure the loss of american life to enemy combatants so we left but our greatest centers to have left without first overseeing an exodus of those who were desperate to run from baruch theocracy. We did a portion of the saving at the last minute and those tens of thousands who did escape will be forever grateful for the eleven marines. One navy cormon and one army soldier who gave their lives at those refugees might live but for twenty years. We pretend it all of us at some sort of middle ground might emerge between the darkest midnight and the dawn of democracy. Turns out there wasn't such a middle ground and yet we owed an exit to those who relied on falso.

"On amazon music or with one plus in the days after nine eleven it really did feel like nothing would ever be funny again. Welcome to the late show. This is our first show on the air. Sense of new york and washington were attacked. Even the men on late night had abandoned their post. Then shuffled back. One by one cowed by their lack of words to describe what had happened. Letterman came. I watching all of this. I wasn't sure of that. I should be doing a television show because for for twenty years we've been in in the city making fun of everything making fun of the city making fun of my hair making fun of paul well. Conan came the next night. I will be very honest with you. I have no idea how to do what we've been doing. I know i have no idea how we're going to get back to doing this again. That's how we all feel. And then jon stewart two nights later. I was a producer on the daily show. Then standing just offstage with the rest of the staff feeling like someone had pulled the parking brake at full speed. Our senses of humor had dropped right out of the bottom of the car. So we're we're gonna take a break. And i'm going to stop slobbering on myself in the desk and we're going to get back to this and it's gonna be fun and funny and it's going to be the same as it was and i thank you. We'll be right back. I just assumed well. We can't do humor todd. Hanson was the head writer at the satirical newspaper the onion at the time. Everyone on the staff assumed that and so we cancelled it and we just went dark and of course who cares. It's just comedy right. But here's the problem the onion isn't just a scrappy.

How to Create Your Own Product for eCommerce
"What most people call market research. I call a very superficial idea. I mean it's twenty twenty one. This idea was being outlet for years. It's not enough to use helium tan or jungle scout. Whatever you up of choices if you're in the amazon space or of its new google space h refs or whatever the nfl shop or find your main traffic. John could be through legal Seo whatever it is. That is not enough in my opinion. Okay well that means you understand the keywords as being typed into google or amazon by the searches but you don't understand the lives of the searches and the search intent is always going to be a guest work so you really dive deep. I think and then the flip side of that is by diving deep into market research. It means you're creating a product is much more likely to actually exactly solve a problem for a specific insieme. So that the two sides of the same coin buddy okay so break down the steps towards what's step one. Step two step three. How do you do this. What's the routine. Yes so this is a market research side. The first thing is to start with who you are and what you know. A lot of people tend to start with keyword research and for example. Somebody who's twenty years. A doctor trying to see some brand plus it which he knew nothing about to send him. Could it be that we need to tap into your expertise in some married one. One example extreme example of somebody. I interviewed recently. Jason frontiers based on in florida actually formed the business for athletes and hip. One of his business partners has is a doctor of physical medicine. So in british contacts means a physiotherapists really genuinely expert. Very very expert in. And he's seven crawford athletes straightaway the have a competitive advantage built-in based on who's on the team which is something to really think about how you can get an item advantage built in because you have disadvantages already because you don't know what you're doing had this is your first time out with physical products or even if you go into new market and you've been selling in ten years or superfly may new market you have a built in disadvantage to build one in so. I think that's really important thing to be honest so brainstorming. What you really know. It's such a common story you just expressed and i've i've had these experiences. Well where you talk to people. And they have ten twenty thirty years of experience. In a certain industry or vocation and when it comes to them building an online business they go in just some completely random different like you know dream
U.S., Australia and UK Unveil New Security Partnership
"The biden administration's efforts to counter chinese dominance in asia and support allies in the region is gathering steam. This week the us uk and australia agreed a landmark security pact in the indo pacific. The move will see australia. Build nuclear powered submarines for the first time the pack will also cover artificial intelligence cyber and quantum technologies. So what does all this mean for australia. Monaco's contributor in canberra ardebili. Gary sent us. This report the news that ustralia is going to be getting nuclear-powered submarines came out of the blue five years ago. We signed an agreement with the french to provide us with diesel-powered submarines. It has since become clear that these technology would not be adequate to meet security challenges. Plus they wouldn't be delivered for almost twenty years at the same time. Need security partnership between australia. The us and uk was announced called aucas. All of this is pretty big knees. Even if you're not someone to spend a lot of time thinking about submarines the full details haven't yet been announced but it is clear that it's all about sending a strong message to china. Tensions between australia and china has been increasing over the past few years so this deal is all about australia. Proving to beijing that it has big and powerful allies that it can rely on but it will get australia. Offside with other friends new zealand and pacific countries are avowedly anti nuclear. Oh new zealand has already said it won't allow the subs in its waters. Australia is a signatory to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. So we can expect that e inspectors will be doorsteps wanting access and china has put out a statement. Saying it's irresponsible big questions now. Are this tacitly. Say that his strategy is undoubtedly in a cold war situation with china. And just how much safer will australia. Now be
Why Mary Grabar Felt Led to Write Her Book 'Debunking the 1619 Project: Exposing the Plan to Divide America'
"Mary what led you to write this book. I mean others have written about this but This this obviously is something that has taken a lot of your time. Why did you focus specifically on the six thousand nineteen project. Well it was the latest History fall of lies. I had written the howard zinn book which emerged from my experience as a college instructor for twenty years when i saw the corruption of education and i learned about howard sin and so my book on howard zinn came out in twenty nineteen right around the same time that's sixteen nineteen project came out and actually day apart and i saw the sixteen nineteen project and i started reading it. And after i had written the book on howard's then i thought well can't get much worse but in its own unique way the sixteen nineteen project maybe worse especially because it's being adopted for the elementary school grades so i wanted to expose the lies and you know i am an immigrant to this country. My parents brought me from a communist country. When i was two years old and i see that this kind of propaganda is demoralizing young people causing racial conflict and a inspiring kind of marxist revolution. And i don't want that to happen. So i thought that the truth needed to be
A 20-Year Megadrought Threatens Hydropower in the West
"A twenty year. Mega drought in the west is threatening hydropower. For millions of people so the federal government is taking emergency action it sending water from other reservoirs to lake powell to help. Keep the power turbines. They're spinning. here's michael. Elizabeth sack is from colorado public radio at elk creek marina. People wait in line to back their trailers into the water to pull their boats out. And some like walter. Slut cough are frustrated. Resumes legua up and down many times. But we're not happy with it this year. Of course because we're all getting kicked out early and we pay for slips for the season. Blue mesa is colorado's largest reservoir. It's already less than thirty percent full. And now it's being forced to sacrifice more water to send to lake powell eric. Logan is head of operations at elk. Creek marina he had to shut down six weeks early because of the low water levels. It's a big hit for us for sure. There's a bunch of employees. That doctor would be employed into october and suddenly they're out looking for employment in middle of august. The deepening drought in the west has dealt a double blow to blue mesa this summer with climate change there's less snowpack and warmer temperatures increase. Evaporation so less water is making it into the colorado river and reservoirs like blue mesa and now the federal government is taking water from this lake into other reservoirs. If we were full it wouldn't be that big deal but since we're already so low and we're barely hanging on by our fingertips on trying to stay open. You take eight feet of water and suddenly we got shut the doors and move everything out to deeper water and there's nothing we can do about it. Lake powell on the utah. Arizona border hit its lowest level on record earlier this summer. Logan worries the reservoir will need even more water from blue mesa. If the drought doesn't improve the question is are they going to release whatever we get. That would become a very big problem for everyone around here. Blue may sat and the other reservoirs were built in the nineteen sixties for times of drought. It's a bank of water that the states can tap when they need. It says john macleod. A water lawyer in colorado. The water always goes to lake. Powell and this release is part of the plan. And it's using the reservoirs for one of their intended purposes
The Tide Turns Against Biden as Trump's Popularity Surges
"Sean look at this past weekend commemorating nine. Eleven president biden goes to three. All three sites doesn't say a word doesn't speak at any of them. He's booed lustily at those three stops I i'm sorry to report that f. joe biden was seen and heard often in fact that the yankees mets game f joe biden was was thundering throughout the stadium but there was president trump. Visiting a fire station in new york greeted with joy with love with affection by the brave first responders Who we were commemorating on this twentieth anniversary. It feels like the tied at least to me. The tide has really turned rather rapidly. Do you agree. Well let me put my own spin on this. Because i think that a couple of things number one. It wasn't to your point. I was watching this coverage and it was all these politicians went and spoke I didn't speak but but they'll let and that's fine. I mean everybody look. I said this before. I don't judge anyone in terms of how they honor. People are prey or serve the country. I mean everyone's got their own stick and and so. I don't think it's fair to judge. Somebody for trump goes in like gets in with these firefighters and police officers their you know high fiving down and listen to their stories and telling him how much you appreciate them. And somehow that's the wrong thing to do which blows my mind. Cause i'm thinking. I'm not going to criticize other people. But there's one thing that i think. Those firefighters first responders police officers need right. Now it's a it's a leader that comes in and says. Hey look in the i i wanna tell you about how much i appreciate your sacrifice. Your service The idea that what you've gone through these last twenty years. I mean so i just go but here's where i would sort of nuance the difference. When i walk into that press briefing room. Almost every day. I felt like i was walking into the lion standards. These guys were coming out. There wasn't one maybe one or two That were that. Were coming at me with fair questions. And the funny thing is a conservative media. Many cases was harder than the liberal media because they demanded the president trump Stand up to what he campaigned on and rightly so they did ask it much more respectful. What jen sakis. Walking into like a group of kittens every day. That are there to what she

Eleven the legacy of nine eleven years since and that's one of the things that we focused on our series on. Abc news live. Almost half of the victims at the world. Trade center have never been identified the rubble that was the world trade center. Emergency crews have been frantically digging all day. There's just the the terrible science that two enormous buildings collapsed any miniscule remains could have been damaged by the fire by jet fueled by by the force of the collapse of the buildings on. I'm hoping that anyone who got out and they there were a lot that dig it out. We'll see this picture. See his name and call me and let me know they will gonna be evacuated but the phone clicked off and that was the last anybody ever heard from her. There are people out there that that still wants. Answers still want results but interestingly the office of the chief medical examiner in new york city has spent these twenty years still with a small team of people trying to use ever evolving technology to identify remains based on ever smaller fragments. It was a shock. It was a shock. I so just this week. We ended up. Having an announcement of two victims now being identified one of them a woman from the long island she was on the ninety. Four th floor. The north tower thanks to new technology. The dna in some of the remains matched. Dorothy old toothbrush. And the thing is i. I've spoken over these years to a lot of victims families and survivors. How long did you hold onto. Hope for you. Had to step years years years. Yeah they just wanna have something tangible something that says that my husband my son my daughter. My wife might might my father that these people did not just disappear from the face of the earth. It's incredible that we are still discovering literally discovering new things about that day twenty years later can we zoom out a little because you cover law enforcement you cover national security. That's been your beat for so many years when you look back on september tenth of two thousand one. What has changed practically since that day. When you look at america stands now. I have to say brad. There's nothing that hasn't changed the rest of the you or not feeling down all of us. Those planes hit the towers and they hit the pentagon and those heroes on flight. Ninety three fourths the down in pennsylvania and no one realized it in the moment because it was not entirely clear in that very second but at that moment everything about law enforcement change new times the fudd by anxiety and security police officers down there when dog sniffing out cars say right now. Calls have increased tenfold. We saw the growth of things like see something say something which basically deputises all people and all local police departments to be the front lines in the war on terror. Islamic leaders say they had received threats as last week's attacks but they want people to realize that they're not the bad guys cruiser because we're arab-americans budgets for law enforcement exploded washington. Dc for instance has learned. That one has matt team is not nearly enough to cover a city every tau all of a sudden was on the frontlines in the war on terror. Traces of anthrax have been found in five post offices in palm beach county. There are no guarantees that that mail is safe got a vast coalition of people bound by this principle. Either you with us or you were the enemy. Then you have. America declaring war attack neff ghanistan and then two years later attacking iraq. Our coalition is strong. And we're keeping his strong and we're on the hunt. we're chasing them down one by one. So we end up having all number of veterans coming out of war zones. There's always hiring preferences for veterans as there should be in civil service hundred shock so you end up having a mindset among some veterans of the policing in the war zone which is dramatically different than policing in a civilian environment. Here on the home. From the pop. Tear-gas like whoa. He's spoken to a lot of people especially police commissioner in baltimore. Who's dealing with this issue right now. Twenty years later. Let's try to tamper down the militaristic look and mindset and move away from the warrior model into the guardian model where we guardians of our community. Not necessarily warriors of the community when even above the precinct level. Josh i gotta think that federally that the the direction that our country took and our federal agencies took that completely changed as well and that affects. every american doesn't matter who your mayor. Your governor is oh one hundred percent so the fbi turned its focus from being a reactive law enforcement organization in many ways to being a proactive organization whose goal is to stop the next attack before it occurs with my signature. This law will give intelligence and law enforcement officials important new tools.

"That's it everybody is just a human They have a different human experience. Just being a veteran and being in the military is a part of that but most of these people in the book. They found a way to help others. And it's kinda interesting hearing what you said that you guys had two different experiences with transition but you still came to this point i think about my personal career in photography i cold turkey then gave up fashion. Which is my career and like just gave up on it but still came back to photography in some capacity. So there's things that i feel like when you stop doing things yourself and you start doing things for others where you find success. The commitment to serve i think is the thing. That's that's what unites us all for sure. And that's what that's what that life coach. Who's also a therapist you know pointed out is that that's the thing that's missing and we find that common theme and i was gonna ask you boys you start going through and asking all the questions and everything that you guys start seeing a common thread. What was the common threads that you've found. I mean we just found a common thread that we all exit in a very different way but finally arrived at the same destination. What was the common thread or was there one that you saw to the seventy one that you talked to you. You know when. I went into this because i didn't know the vet space very well and i still looked better because you got me interested. Yeah yes i didn't. I didn't know i was outside of the spectrum so i was going in thinking that all these stories are somehow going to be like not so much unique there is going to be similarities with each story and every single person interviewed had such a different story and it really put me down this path and understanding that these are just human beings to and they have their own lives and their own thoughts just because they were all in the military doesn't mean they're like from one another but the only thing that i would say that was pretty consistent across the board is most of them all had rough transitions. Yeah i was about to say you vaccinate. They all struggle with their transition. And that's the one thing. I took away from it was. That's the only thing i kept hearing over and over. So that's the main issue that's going on if they're helping people that are happy with whether life has taken them but they had a shitty transition that's the aspect that we need to focus on when we say transition. Are you saying just the first thirty days sixty days ninety days. What was right on as long as es real quick to you to give example. I mean i've had people that had a transition within a month and then they found.

"Filter out a whole maybe bad ideas or or give new ideas or things like that somebody there that can really just give it to your straight and i think that's so important on a lot of veterans. I didn't do that. I i was just getting ready to say to this is this is interesting in a spend that i haven't heard that makes total sense because you're entering into a world like we talked about that ninety. Nine percent of the people are not like you. And that's what you should do is assimilate in some way and who better to teach you and guide you yet. What we tend to see though is more of the case of people looking for a mentor of a veteran has gotten out in in looking for people in this book that they can connect to and go. Hey help me out and there are organizations that that's all they do is set up and make you veteran mentors but i agree with you. I think There's a lot that you can take away by understanding the other side and them sharing the story of you know. Try to share the same thing to some people. Now that have been out for a period of time is like you know the purple heart that silver star those things being put on the top of your resume really gonna impress the hell out of that to be an employer. No they're going to thank you for your service. But where are you going to add the value in that hard true sometimes it. Somebody needs to say it well. I think what's interesting too. Is that you know we as humans need to be challenged you know. We need to put herself very vulnerable uncomfortable situations so i get where veterans. Look for other veterans after transition. But that's where because it's comfortable so when you actually force yourself to be uncomfortable and final civilian counterparts. That may seem ass backwards. You're putting yourself in a position of growth and you're gonna find it to be much easier going in that route. I think kind of sticking to a of your past and then trying to transition at the same time. Yeah how was it for you. I could read the book. But i'm just curious you know your stories What's what's interesting.
"twenty years" Discussed on Mentors for Military Podcast
"Way. And then they they're taking burst and everything but then you have those just go all right you know look natural whatever and they they just take a couple of shots in and then like it and they come out amazing because again they know like you said they know wind. Capture it how to capture specific. Look that they know is going to turn outright. And the lighting is a certain way. They already figured that out. It's just that professional i mean. How many years did you do this before leading up this. You said ten ten ten years of doing you know professional photography. That's that's a lot of photo-taking. Yeah i i mean total. It's been about fourteen. Because i did digital for about four years and then i switched to film into that for about ten But what's interesting is now that it's reprogram to me like we might have a project coming up as a team that we're gonna be working on where i have to shoot digital and unlike i really don't want to because i'm so used to film but i understand that these photos have to come out like super fast like we need to get them out that day that we're shooting the project but even with me shooting digital. I'm still going to be programmed to maybe shoot a few photos at a time rather than bursting crazy. What what's interesting about. The book is that we were talking about transition and we're talking about the stories post Combat and we focus a whole lot. And then we. We don't always get the transition aspects on this show but we try not to focus on their. I was necessarily more about if if you can take lessons. Learned from that. Great if there is something that you want to bring to the table because it it explains later why you may be wanting to talk about push. Dramatic stressor ti. That's great but the challenge. I think we all have. Is that as much as we try to talk to our brothers and sisters who are currently serving of the importance that we're all going to transition. Nobody wants to listen. So you know initially when we started this podcast. We very much focused because people said oh my knee guy to focus a little bit more on transition. We did and and people weren't listening because they feel like they've got it all figured out. So what's great about this is now. You're gonna see veterans may.

"One reason tiger was around so long was that they were doing this and it turns out they were also doing the iphone We didn't know that at the time but tiger had a life on both platforms in it was the transitional s Just like big sur. Today where. I'm big sur. On my intel. Mac pro and my in one laptop to same wes different platforms and is responsible for bridging us from one to the next and the ad like calls back to the carbon days when they were doing these transitions so i yeah tiger thumbs up. Actually i've thumbs up for most of these releases afterwards So the next one after that ten point five leopard and october of two thousand seven. Yeah it's a long time From tigers release and the reason was that apple was finishing up the the iphone And the iphone was going to ship in late. June two thousand seven in april apple said. Hey look leopards gonna be out in october because we were basically all on the iphone over here and we're gonna make sure that gets out the door in a good state and then we'll come back and finish up leopard. Some people were not happy about that. Yeah well that. That's that's where the that's the walk and chew gum era for apple as they mean. This is the first release where they had been strapped onto. A rocket ship called the iphone. And they're trying to keep their computer company going while the rocket ship isn't boiling them. Farther into orbit. Yeah leopard supported both power. Be cnn tell it brought new features but not as many. I think this is kind of the first time we start seeing the feature train slowed down a little bit. It brought bootcamp supports. You could run windows on until mac. It had a revised interface so unlike tiger which was just a hot mess. Leopard everything was more muted brushed. Metal pinstripes are all gone. Everything looked basically the same. You got very shiny very reflective and three d. You got stacks which is still around today Again the big one is time machine right. That's the that's the leopard headliner for me. Yeah i mean bringing back up to the masses oriented plugging a drive. Still great still nothing easier to this day. It really was the answer and you know they've they've iterative on it over the years. But you know you get a new mac and you just plug in hard drive in your good We have people in your life that are not. Keith's have you like gifted them a drive or or just told them to get a dry. You know almost everybody i know. That's the first conversation i have with them. When they get a mac. No yeah it's it's so many people. I used to be my price when i go set up a mac for somebody. That's alco set it up but you have to have an extra hard hour drive when i get there. I'd set up their their backup. Leopard was also the beginning of apple closing the door on classic mac os so the classic emulation environment was gone. Carbon was still there but For a while apple had promised that carbon was going to be sixty four. Bit men could support more memory and and Newer processors and basically they said actually That's not going to be that carbon is going to be thirty two bit only Which is why. So many apps died it with catalina last year or analogous two years ago because carbon and thirty two bit stuff is no longer support it. It's only sixty four bit and so this was the beginning of the end of that. Very well thought out bridge we talked about. Leopard is apple coming off the bridge and saying os ten new way of writing apps. This is where we're going and we're not going to support carbon indefinitely. It would stick around for a long time after this but this was apple. Starting to say hey look. It's it sounded long game. At this point there are mac. Power users episodes. I think if you go back into the archive deepen of you'll hear me saying that. I was amazed at lasted as long as it did. I didn't think carbon would last this long. They gave them a very long runway It was deprecated i think in ten eight But stick around for years to come so it was a very very gradual transition. But when you have things like photoshop an office like you need those on your platform and so in a way. This really wasn't apple's timetable. To set in two thousand eight you know maybe now apple would be more aggressive with us. We'll see how aggressive they are about intel to learn but at least here in this situation i think it was basically out is out of apple's hands and they said look we're going to start this now we'll get back to you and we know when we're going end it well. I mean you have to distinguish these transitions. The first transition we talked about. The beginning was from an antiquated operating system to mac. Os ten which they had to carbon bridge but then at the same time if just a few years later they did. The intel transition and i feel like carbon helped that transition as well so it helped not only a software transition but also hardware transition that i've always felt that's why they kept it around. Yeah because you could run like power. Carbon apps in rosetta. Yeah stax volt technology but apple had to do it because you had to keep the software running.

"So you talked earlier about how you know. The initial releases needed work but very quickly apple. Put the gas down. And it wasn't long before clearly they had you could tell they were on the right track. So the next release ten point two jaguar. Let's talk about that one. Yeah this is This is my my one of my fun facts about this. This is the first time the release had been actually called by the cat. Codename like nerds. New puma was apple. Just refer to. It is ten point one. Get a point to. There's a big furry x. on the box that has been rendered by pixar. just fun. I guess picks up an afternoon. Okay can you make a box covered in leopard. For or jaguar. For for me and then they did and it looks awesome. It also is the first version of mac os tend to run on g five but also on a g three so it hardware is getting better. Jaguar oversaw a lot of that It was out in the fall of two thousand two and was place in the fall of two thousand three so You know very active year is where olsen added a lot of stuff that we think about still being in mac s like impact four support and quick time. The address book showed up here Bonjour which is like the networking where you to set up your printer and you don't have to like no it's ip address foul sharing a works in the finder. All that bond. your stuff Came in ten point to it also came with the the very early days of what was called then universal access kind of early days of accessibility features in mac. Os ten. And i think one of the gets overlooked but important. If in the frame of early versions macro assembler slow it came with a faster. Graphics called quartz extreme which meant that apple could use a gpu for rendering stuff and i was the cpu. You didn't have that before but as a different time But they they got that going and a couple of things i chat for instant messaging and handwriting inc. Well but this is where like some some features that we think of in part of the system. They start showing up here at the time. It was just like the march features. every year. they came out with a new version and there were a bunch of new features at it. I mean i. I don't feel like you get that with mac. Os ten or mac os updates today like you did back then but now there were major new features added every year. Oh absolutely and that that continued the next year with panther ten point three. It started dropping support for machines There were people who found the way around that This app called ex post facto. Which when i was in college friends who ran it. Is it going to run a version of. Tim doesn't support and you could. You could have the installer and do all sorts of fun stuff. But tim three definitely brought a lot of new features like you said broad brushed metal. So there's that okay. let's talk about brush mental. What were your thoughts on it. Did you like it at the time. I thought it was cool. But then i thought they overdid it pretty quickly and that made me sad because i was never a fan of the pinstripes. I thought it. I thought it felt a lot more modern but you know again. This is a long time ago. Yeah if you haven't seen this i got to lincoln this show to the finder window and panther and it's a lot of brush medal but what was cool about finder and ten point three. Is that it. Basically barred of good ideas from itunes. So before this like your user fold or you had to dig down to it. And here's like well. Let's just put the stuff you want in the sidebar. Make it customizable. We're used to that today and find her with. That wasn't the case for the entire history of it. And so you could do things like put your favorite things in the sidebar and have live searches Were labels show up. I know a lot of people are fan of that still to this day. This is where they showed up in. Os ten even the classic mac os at had them. It took awhile for apple to implement them in ten so finder really got a big update but then it added a whole bunch of other stuff to font book was added. File volt This is not the file that we love today. This was the bad version of audio. I can call it that it was not good fast user. Switching was here which is great. You know you click your name and the menu bar and log. Another account really quickly expose was here so the first time. They've really tried window management beyond just minimizing things to the dock and Safari shows up. Safari was actually mid cycle between two and three but safari one point zero was named the default browser like apple was all in on safari as panther. I didn't run it in the early days but it was there and it was gaining lava tinted from apple. And there's early days. Yeah well i think they. They saw the writing on the wall. And this is kind of a version of apple's idea that look we need to control our own destiny and one thing you must have in order to have a good operating system at at this time is two thousand three kind of as the internet starting to take off as you have to have your own browser that you control. I think they were smart to do that. Absolutely they were and that continues to be a big thing today. get chat a v. c. audio and video conferencing stuff and to get built in fact support. So if you've got a fax machine or or you need a fact something you don't have one you're contracts it for you. So that's that's cool. That's not there anymore. That's that's gone away the year sense and then in two thousand five we got tiger and And i'll tell you from my experience. At the time i felt like tiger was the once. I started running tiger and mike okay. Apple is no longer in jeopardy. I mean even th- there was a question in my mind throughout the whole period of the you know the arrival of mac. Os ten is like. Can they pull it off. Think a lot of apple fans had this like this feeling the back of her head that the company was constantly on the verge of bankruptcy or windows was so massive at this time but it was like win tiger shipped. I felt like wow. This is really come a long way..

"Memory the new user interface and feel like a modern app and on the other end they still had all the you know what was then called which we still have today which is yellow box which you can write an objective c your app and that's everything we have now but this carbon bridge was a technically very impressive but be it is what allowed developers to step over to the new platform without having to do a full rewrite. You'd have to do some. Some work wasn't for free but for most developers it was not that big of a deal and just remember a few years later. This is a company that couldn't deliver the goods on copeland. Yeah but suddenly they're making a whole integration layer to move their apps to a totally different operating system. I mean i just can't understate the impact of jobs in next coming in absolutely and and some of the people who worked on carbon had come from next but a lot of people who worked on carbon came from the classic mac. Os offer development team because they knew it really well and they knew that carbon was the only way forward for their technology. And so putting this in place. It's what made all this possible. You know we think about it as you know. There's like this weird. Set of ap is that has been discontinued for a long time now but it was absolutely critical that they add this to rhapsody that they they brand mac os ten. Because they're absolutely name was poisoned by now and this carbon technology carbon ising and app is what made mac apps viable on macos tin which made mac os ten itself viable and. It's kind of funny. I don't wanna spend a lotta time on this. But you know looking forward. This is the template that's how they got to intel. That's how they got to apple silicon once they figured this out yet. Apple's really good at transitions. We've said on the show for a long time. This is another one of them usually think about processor but was software as well. They're really good at it so had a plan and they're going to call it macos ten with ex but it's ten people still get confused about that. I mean anybody who doesn't like listen to podcasts. Are still think that xs. Mac os x apple slowly getting rid of it and a bunch of their product names for a reason. Yeah that's what got us to was in march of two thousand one. Yeah yeah so They they go forward from that announcement. they ship some betas developer preview three showed aqua which is the user interface with the pinstripes and the liberal buttons. I'm going to have some link in lincoln. The show notes to john syracuse's Review talking about off the first time. And i found on youtube the keynote where jobs announces it like you should just go watch it because it is amazing how much they got right and even though big sur looks really different. It's the bones of awkward still with us today. It's really amazing. How the is stood up. Even though the fashion side of the designers changed drastically obviously don't have pulsating blue buttons anymore but the the structure of the design has held up really. Well yeah and they and they shipped. We're gonna talk the after show but our initial our initial impressions of it but i remember distinctly when it came out but eventually they got it to. What was the names. They had the codenames for the betas as they came out. So the public beta which you could just go by for thirty bucks was Kodiak came out in the fall of two thousand. It was really buggy and slow but Cheetah shipped ten point zero in march of two thousand and one for one hundred twenty nine dollars and it was also very buggy and slow. It was and i think a lot of that has to do with the user interface that you're asking a g three to do a lot of stuff And it took them a little. While for the hardware to catch up with the interfaces in terms of being able to drive it reliably but at the same time. It was slow but it did work. A minute came with the classic emulation. So you could run your your mac. Os apps unmodified. It came with carbon so developers who had done a little bit of work their absolute standup on os ten and then you had Coco which was for developers writing an objective c. And some of apple's apps. Were like that and over time. That became more and more common today. It's the only way if you don't count. Catalyst this also kind of goes back to the original macintosh which was hardware constraint. I mean they had good ideas but the hardware. Wasn't there yet. Yeah and very quickly. Apple tried to get the hardware you know up to snuff to to run this stuff. Yeah absolutely You know it was slow and it did. Crash wasn't perfectly stable. But right off the bat. You could tell that. I think it was better than classic mac. Os in terms of stability. Maybe not everyone would agree with that. But i think on the whole i think that was probably true. If not intend zero definitely by the time ten one comes out later in two thousand and one which. I was kind of an apology release. It was only twenty bucks and you could pick up the upgrade cd for free apple stores and mak resellers okay. You bought ten zero for one hundred thirty dollars..

"A lot of computer hardware as it got faster was getting additional support. Like you know. Multi multi the The ability to run multiple apps at a single time which was supported. Much better than the mac and the mac felt creaky at the time. I am i use them and it definitely needed something that it didn't have and there were real technical reasons for that creaky feeling. I mean one who used the classic. Mac os will remember an application crashing and unique to restart your computer right now. Usa used to to run utilities to babysit your ram. Yeah it was like it was like the starship enterprise in like you had to like figure out how much power you're gonna put into your shields in your thrusters and your your lasers because you had to do that with your on the mac or you would. An app could run and check literally crash the system. That's right and the reason for that was really twofold. The real reason for the crash eunice and the having to babysit everything was a lack of protected. Memory so these things these are things are very tentacle. My best effect. I've ripped out of my book. Because i i talked to a bunch of people trying to explain these as simply as possible but in the classic mac. Os say you're running photoshop. Photoshop has its chunk of ram chunk of memory that its using in the other processor application could go into that memory pool and read and write from it and tinker with it and so in this world if an application crashes. It can't help but take down the rest of the system because that ram is all shared between everybody and it's not protected that is a security issue. Of course you don't want application snooping on each other. But it also led to that instability that so many people So often and the second thing is preemptive multitasking and again simplifying. This preemptive multitasking means that an operating system can run multiple occasions multiple services and ensured that they all have access to the cpu basically. The system is the traffic cop right. So macro s is in charge of where all the applications are doing as far as computer resources without this again you run into instability and you're anything blocking each other for instance in classic mac. Os clicking a menu in the menu bar. Basically the rest of the machine would stop until you let go of your mouse. Because the computers whole attention is now watching. What is david going to do with this menu and it can't can't do enough to keep everything else. Everything else running. And this made the mac feel slower than it needed to and again instability at not being a very secure and by the nineties this stuff was around and apple does didn't have it yet. The thing that felt weird at the time kind of looking back. And i'm thinking like late iraq late eighties to early nineties was the ram problem was a constant thing. Like your computer would crash if you weren't careful and i hated that and the the multitasking was great. And none of us were really using it that we're using macs so we saw that was out there but we really just didn't have it so i don't think we missed it as much. The third thing you mentioned was security. And i can tell you having been there. None of us thought anything about security. Nobody cared a lot of these. Computers weren't on the internet. And exactly and the mac was basically a single user machines so when that big of a deal and it's not for trying so by the time system seven comes around apple had tried twice to build an os replacement. One was called pink which is mostly internal Taligent which they worked with some partners on and those are like stories for another time but they just didn't have talent focus and resources to make that happen and so both of those projects died off without any really anything to show for it now. where does copeland fittings. I remember talk of copeland around the same time. Yes so copeland was apple's third. Try to build a a modern operating system This launched in nineteen ninety four and the goal was to ship it quote system. Eight or mac. Os eight in one thousand. Nine hundred. eighty six. The to do list was really long for copland. It needed to support all classic mac applications in the all native for the power. Pc apple's new hardware platform it was going to have an updated user interface. It was going to support open doc. Which again is the story for. Different time but open dock is real sad story where apple basically said instead of applications have content everywhere very strange idea and then it was going to have protected memory and preemptive multitasking apple. Knew this was a problem. It's not that their their heads in the sand but copeland was way too ambitious again. Given apple's resources at the time and i've talked to people who worked on copeland and the company just didn't have what it needed to pull this off in a bunch of different ways and rather unsurprisingly nineteen ninety-six comes and goes and Gil emilio the ceo at the time. Says hey look instead of one big o. s. upgrade We're gonna roll these features out one by one over the course of several updates to mac. Os basically as things are ready. We're going to put them into the release some features like the interface platinum. If you've run. Mac os or macos if you run. Mac os eight or mac os nine. You've seen platinum and better power. Pc support those rolled out. But that was about it. You know mac. Os eight when it finally came about really was just a shell of what copeland was supposed to be. You know that was a watershed moment for me. I guess because when that announcement came down that this was going to be piecemeal and having been dealing at that point. I've been a lawyer for three years and was trying to do legal work on a mac and running into so many problems with compatibility in the whole firm was on windows and they said hey you know we're gonna get this but it's gonna you know one feature at a time. I was thinking this is going to be like five years of misery. And that's when. I started learning how to use a pc. I think a lot of people abandoned ship at that point. I mean i kept my mac but yeah did a lot of work on the pc will. Apple had talked a big game about copeland for a long time and it just it just all fell apart and you know at this point. You've got three dead attempts. I think apple knew that it would need to go. You know what they call them. The business world to an outside hire they needed to go find an operating system they could bring in. Add some sort of mac support to it and that be their new os. I think they knew that they were out of time. The stock market told them. They are out of time. You know this is all in the era of apple having dwindling sales and dwindling cash on hand. You know windows. Ninety five was not very kind to the mac right. A lot of people look at windows. Ninety five. I don't think i don't think mackie's are solid at the time but i think now looking back it's clear that windows ninety five delivered a real hard blow to the mac not that it had all the stuff done perfectly but it was so much better than previous versions of windows that it really showed. That microsoft was serious about making an operating system with a gooey. That was pretty good it will. It was good enough good. I think it would be. And i mean there are so many things about the mac that were better but the underlying problems at the mac again. I i'll stop saying this. But the ram management problem used to drive me crazy and it was a problem and at the time if you put it in. Context windows is on the rise. You know they've they've figured out how to move windows. I mean the first couple versions of windows was terrible and The but they're starting to figure it out while at the same time. Apple's can't seem to get its act together about upgrading. the operating system. And i'll tell you the time. I didn't know if i had to buy computer the time i didn't know what i would deny us the the pc's at work. And i had my back. Yeah but if somebody told me you've got to buy a computer. I'm not sure. I would have given money to apple at the time because i just wasn't sure they were gonna be around a few years and ninety five had that those like core underlying things not that it was perfect..

"Lord knows i plug my stuff enough. Stephen don't feel bad. Yeah i'm not as prolific as you are with the book so this is my. This is my shot a great book. I would highly recommend it. I bought it before you. And i were as good a friends as we are like. Oh i just wanna read this guy's book. Yeah i i thought you talk about this with your stuff but i thought i could probably get this done like a month and it took almost a year. That's the usually at twelve to one. That's about right. Yeah so it was a lot of fun also today on more power users you know the ad free longer version of the show. We're going to talk about our first experiences. Our first exposure to mac os ten. You had came from very different places. Or you've been using the mac a long time. I kinda came to this sort of mid transition between classic mac. Os and os ten. So we're gonna talk about that for members at the end of the show. I'm looking forward to that a lot. Yeah me too me too so Where do we start this journey. We're going to start the dawn of time getting well. I was thinking. Well let's let's start with. Where apple was yeah. You know at the beginning where it really wasn't a very good place. It wasn't Initially the obviously a game changer in nineteen eighty-four popularized things like the graphic user interface. And thing the mouse in fact a lot of the ads from the early days of the macintosh were. This is how a mouse works during that era of the eighties. Apple really didn't have the idea that the software was separate from the hardware it was. This is the macintosh and this is the software software. Didn't have its own brand if you will. There was the finder and there was like the system folder. And that sort of stuff but eventually apple would sort of come around to giving this thing a name and we would get like things like system software five system six System seven and it became more of a marketing and branding deal as opposed to before. Like when you got the mac plus it is ran a slightly newer version of the macintosh experience than the one twenty eight had. This was different. From how computer companies did it A lot of effect there was a lot of stuff in the eighties. It about the os that you that you ran right. I'm earning cpm or dos. Or whatever but apple. And i think primarily steve jobs viewed the mac as it is. Just one thing and talking about the software and hardware separately. Didn't make a lot of sense to apple. in that time. I think he was always a fan of the toaster. Approach technology in like. This is what you get you. Pull out the box in the works. And we don't need to focus on any particular component as much as we focus on the fact that it all works together and this is kind of beyond the scope of today show but andy hertzfeld did this great series on the internet op. Go head and go find it. I read this stuff years ago where he talked about kind of the chronicles of them. Putting together the operating system for the first mac. And just like the mac. os ten group. The you know the original. Mac system one i guess or the original mac. Operating system really was revolutionary. They saw a bunch of problems that nobody else could get around. Everybody likes to make fun of apple and say xerox parc already had the mouse in windows on all the stuff but nobody even apple with their lisa initiative were able to get in a user friendly working method and and the people microsoft were flummoxed when they saw a the original macintosh with almost no ram move windows around the screen. I mean it. It really was quite an effort by that original team. But you know it just kind of stay there you know. They really didn't kind of flow with the times. Yeah that's right That website by the way Having the notes folklore dot org yes. That's anything you wanna read about. The early mac is there. It's it's a great resource. That's one of those websites that if the day comes where it needs somebody to keep hosting it. I will just pay to keep posting it myself like that site and he's at forever so yes. Let's let's jump forward in time You know ten twelve years after the original mac system six seven. It became mac. Os as the name with seven. Point six in nineteen ninety-seven why that version. I don't know the the apple in the ninety s was a real mystery But like you said they. They had basically let it sort of wither on the vine. You know mac. Os had come from this place of swapping floppies around. They did add things like hard drive support networking the ability to run more more than one app at a time which was originally a hack called multi finder and they brought that into the system but they just bolted. All this stuff on the core wasn't really improved very much right. It's like trying to think about analogy right. It's like if you are adding onto your house. But you didn't deal with structural issues in the original building right like you're sort of just adding weight and adding structure to something. That really shouldn't be able to support it. And that's kind of where. Mac os got in the nineties. Yeah it's like a house with the foundation for one story but they had a three story house on top of dacian. yeah absolutely. I vividly remember my college bookstore though system six posters when system six came out you know. Because that's where we all the nerds. The mac nerves would go hang out in the bookstore section but it did feel like You know when. Mac was so revolutionary. When it came out i mean the reason they did ads about the mouse is because everybody was sitting in an ibm pc with command line or even on apple two with a command line or whatever and it was like such a game changer..

We should probably tell people in advance. How long this. Google doc is going to be a fun ride today. I feel like this is like the episode for stephen. This is this is episode one hundred percent and But it's actually a lot of fun talking about this stuff. I i guess we should start by explaining why we're talking about mac os today. Yeah so on. March twenty four. Th two thousand one apple released mac. Os ten point zero to the public. There were some betas including a public betas before that and you know. We wanted to mark the twentieth anniversary of that. And it's an amazing run and we both think mac. Os now called has long life ahead of it but it seems like a nice time to stop look back at how far the mac has come in two decades. Yeah i mean how much this operating system is responsible for success. I mean i was thinking about this over the weekend as we were prepping for the shows like out in my head he would think like why the i mac is. What saved apple you know. They came out with the cool. Color of li- mac but really everything they have done in these twenty years started with mac os ten even the iphone. Yeah i mean the apple watch has its roots in In this This were an. it'll be only time. I do it to forgive me. I'm gonna plug a book that i wrote Post like four years ago now called aqua and bond i. it's about the basically. You just mentioned the i mac and os ten and how those came about together to release save apple It's on the Apple bookstore and We're gonna talk a lot about what's in this book. Today in fact actually pulled up my pdf of it to to refresh my memory on some of it. But if you like what we're talking about today maybe go check that out. I think you would enjoy it.
