More Calls to Cancel Canada Day in Vancouver
"At least one. Large canadian city victoria has decided to cancel canada day celebrations on july. The first as dan carpenter reports the decision comes in the wake of the recent discovery of the remains of two hundred fifteen native children at the site of a former residential school in british columbia. Plans have now been shelled for the city on vancouver island to host a virtual candidate a celebration. The decision came after a unanimous. Vote by victoria city council. Instead officials say they will create a broadcast focused on the larger canadian history with guidance from local first nations. The broadcast will be released later in the summer. And focus on what it means to be canadian. Here's victoria mayor. Lisa helps right now. the likud nations are grieving And so it's very difficult for them to come and sing and dance and celebrate context change when those two hundred and fifteen children's bodies were discovered and and they are reeling and everybody is reeling. And so we're all just doing our best to figure out how to move forward. Some residents of vancouver island agree with the decision saying it might be best to cancel the celebrations this year and instead remember all residential school survivors and the victims. There have been similar calls across the country to cancel the national holiday celebrations. Many first nations held ceremonies to honor the two hundred fifteen children whose remains were discovered in may at the site of the former kamloops residential school for national native news.

Id like to become a professional complaint coach
"United airlines canceled a flight. I was on then tried to revoke me on an itinerary that would require a four eight am trip to the airport and an extra connection. I escalated the complaint. After talking to a manager i got it down to one connection at a reasonable time and a voucher for two hundred dollars by hadn't spoken up. I would have been out of luck. It wasn't that hard but lots of people don't know what to say or how to be what i call politely assertive. I'd like to brand myself as the complaint coach and help people get what they deserve from large companies especially when something goes wrong. Do you have any tips or advice. Thanks politely assertive. I love that hitting that in a nutshell is great takeaway less than for somebody. Who's like how do i properly complain when something goes wrong on my next flight or something. You are politely assertive. So bonus lesson there. Thank you for that tom. Now as for the business potential. I totally agree as mentioned that people do not know how to properly complain especially to big companies. They tend to get very emotional and point out lots and lots of different issues without really focusing on. What is the core issue. Where did this company let me down. And also what seems like a fair remedy for that experience so these big retail companies beat ac- companies. They have entire departments focused on recovery or customer experience or the art of making good when something goes wrong. So how can tom turn this into a service. I think it needs to be really simple. It can't be a twenty four module. Six class people need to get results quickly. Also as a business model you know people who work as negotiators trying to lower the cost of large bills like in the medical world. But that's a bit different because helping people get two hundred dollar vouchers on flights. I mean that's awesome. That's valuable but if you earn a on that which is how that works in the world of medical bill negotiation. It's kind of a lot of work for a relatively small amount of money. Like you're saving somebody two hundred dollars but you're going to get you know five to ten percent of that probably not a great business model so i like the idea of one of these. Two approaches. tom as the complaint coach sells a quick and dirty informational product. That probably sells for like thirty nine dollars. Thirty nine to seventy nine dollars somewhere in that range and it's just like here's what you need to know to get what you want. The second option would be a half hour consultation. In which tom guarantees his service will have positive results so somebody's having a difficult situation he's like i'm going to talk you through. I'll tell you exactly what to say. I'll tell you who to ask for how to respond when they say certain things and so on and because this is a consultation has to cost more so this is something like one hundred dollars to two hundred and twenty

What Happens When Hidden Histories Become a National Conversation?
"At the end of may. When news broke that the remains of more than two hundred children had been found at the kamloops indian residential school. It was news to many canadians. Who learning about the history of residential schools and the role. The canadian government played in the creation. It seemed to mark a new sense of awareness across the country in indigenous communities. Grief came quickly but not shock and not surprise. These types of losses are well known in our nation's and in our families and in real time we watch the rest of the country feel the depths of this history daniel heath justice is a colorado born citizen of the cherokee nation and he's an author and professor of critical indigenous studies and english at the university of british columbia. He joins me now to talk about what happens when hidden histories come to light daniel. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. We're talking about hidden histories on the show today and for me the idea of hidden histories is interesting. Because they're not hidden for everyone up until a few years ago when unreserved would would air story about residential schools. We'd get emails from people telling us that they had never heard of this before the show for sharing this information and that's a luxury indigenous people don't share. It's in our families. It's it's part of our history. How do you think so much of this. History hasn't made its way out of our communities. I struggle with that question. I think there is a sense in many ways that this is only about indigenous people rather than being very much about settler colonial canada. I think there is a sense for a lot of people that when we say school. We mean an educational facility which these were not. I mean these were re education and torture camps. I think we have to start naming them for what they were. I think non-indigenous people Just tune out because the the level of the horror if they had to face it would radically transformed their feelings about the country that they live in if they honestly address that
U.S. To Donate 500 Million Doses to Global COVID-19 Vaccine Supply
"Speaking at the g. Seven summit on thursday president biden said this quote the united states will purchase a half a billion doses of pfizer cove nineteen vaccine to donate to nearly one hundred nations. That are in dire need in the fight against this pandemic. that's a historic step the largest single purchase and donation of covid nineteen vaccines by any single country. Ever unquote He said these vaccines will start being shipped in august as quickly as they can be manufactured. Two hundred million doses To be delivered this year with another three hundred million in the first half of twenty twenty two bill what what do you make this As a foreign policy initiative exercise in soft power. I think it's it's great. I'm glad the biden administration is doing this. Look at the position. we're in now. Just as opposed to a few months now that we're now in the position to donate these extra vaccines. I think it also shows is our editorial points out that We can help the world with their vaccinations without having to suspend intellectual property rights. And so for some of the more dubious ways that they want to do it. So i think there are a few questions you could ask about the distribution and how you know how we're going to choose but it it's it's a it's a great move it you know. It speaks to the best of america and we can do it in. It's it's it's it's a great thing for the world

More than a thousand people there to protest the construction of a new multi-billion dollar oil pipeline a pipeline that among other things would cross through the delicate headwaters of the mississippi river. The protesters are trying to block that new pipeline and all the environmental hazards that it brings with it. A separate group of protesters made their way into one of the new pipelines pump stations. That's currently under construction. They piled a whole bunch of stuff including a vote at the entrance way so nobody could get in or out. The demonstrators then started locking themselves to the construction equipment bodily at at that site that had the effect of shutting down all work on on the pipeline for the day. Eventually police showed up. They started dragging protesters through the dirt to arrest them. About two hundred. People were arrested just at the pump station but the response by law enforcement wasn't just a local one in terms of local minnesota police officers. Look at this. This is a helicopter belonging to the federal government. Us customs and border patrol cv. Pista flew this helicopter. Really low dangerously low over this pipeline protest using the rotor wash from the chopper to blow dirt and debris all over the place apparently to try to get those protesters to leave see.

The protesters are pushing for president biden to suspend the permit for the pipeline before construction on it finished about two hundred. Protesters are camped. Out along the pipeline.

"Welcome robert great to have you on this podcast leeann. Thank you so much for having me. It's wonderful to be with you. Great to have you and so let's kick it off with talking about accidents. Which makes sense you know. Is there one accident that you think was the most consequential for aviation safety during your tenure at the board. And if why. I do think so. I joined the board in two thousand six and i'm about to leave at the end of june so i will have been there just about seven weeks shy of fifteen years and in those fifteen years i would say by far the cogan. Air crash was the most earth shattering accident in terms of being able to change things in the industry. There were massive changes that resulted from that now to refresh your listeners. Memory kogen air was a bombard a dash eight that crashed on approach to buffalo new york in february of two thousand nine. The board's investigation of course was extensive. We issued Twenty-five safety recommendations and as a result of that crash legislation was written and passed into law and now under mentally the way that pilots are selected has changed. Now there's the introduction of the pilot records database so that a perspective employer can really look at the fine details of that pilots Prior experiences The qualifications for being an airline pilot have now been raised substantially. It used to be you had to have at least two hundred fifty hours to be hard. Now it's up to fifteen hundred hours with a few exceptions The way that pilots are trained and maintain proficiency has changed. There was new fatigue regulations.

Light 4Bets At $5/$10 Online 6-Max Cash
"Want to start the hand number. One that i played about a month ago and i played it on a poker coaching. Dot com playing explained livestream as well so Brad's hand starts with us at a five hundred table playing five ten. No limit cash on ignition. Brad is under the gun or excuse me. We're finding five handed. So brad is in the middle position with eight seven of spades opens twenty five dollars the player in the cutoff. Who looks like a rag. Three about two seventy dollars. Everybody else folds caught off and brad are. I guess we should finish up. Ashen brad bets to two hundred thirty dollars. Oath brad and the cutoff started about a hundred and forty five big blinds effective on rag but his three about sizing was team very very small even versus a hundred big stack versus two and a half x. Open making it. Seventy is definitely smaller than what i would expect. I'd expect closer to ninety or maybe even one hundred out a huge deal. I think the more interesting. Our pre flop is your decision to four but actually don't actually think that villains throughout sizing somewhat reasonable at this depth and because they're in position. I don't think they necessarily need to go super big because they can. They can go smaller here. Then they can defend very appropriately versus four bat swallow retaining position throughout the rest of the hand. And if i call very often facing the small three bet sizing then basically. I'm gonna be out of position in a deep sack pot throughout the rest of the hand which is going to be pretty annoying to navigate so actually think villains three about sizing here is it's reasonable. I don't think it's it's definitely not a not worth nitpicking over the sizing for sure. Yeah in seventy eight. Suited is gonna be commits close to the bottom of my. Mp opening range. It's a handed. I mean again. I'm probably defending almost everything except for some alike off suit. Ace jack off type hands. I think those hands are going to get folded but pretty much fitting everything versus small three about sizing and need to find some hands to forget with for board coverage and then also bottom of range type for hands that could flop pretty well can give me some equity post flop and like i said can cover some some of the lower middling type boards that we would like to have some good hands on those boards to so because of all of that. I decided to go ahead and four about this hand if it does five bet which i don't know that they're gonna five bet really anything here even aces and kings. I think those hands might just flat but if they do five bed it's obviously pretty easy to fold the seven hundred and eight.

Jonathan okay so You are the president of the human rights campaign the largest lgbtq so rights organization in the country. And as such. Mr president ask you. What is the state of lgbtq plus america right now. The state of lgbtq america right now is strong. We have more than seventy percent of voters in this country that supported quality. We have more than two thirds of americans in this country that oppose lgbtq rights. Unfortunately that message is not being delivered to the elected officials in state offices across the country. We have more than two hundred and fifty bills have been introduced in state legislatures around the country. More than two hundred and fifty anti lgbtq bills. These are bills. There are seeking to deny our very existence. These are bills that are seeking to deny transgender people from using restrooms consistent with their gender identity from playing in sports consistent with their gender identity denying public school teachers the ability to teach about lgbtq issues using religion as a way to discriminate against lgbtq people. So unfortunately we are in a position today where we have elected officials in states across the country more than forty states that have introduced anti lgbtq bills that do not honor the principles of our democracy and certainly ignore the will of the people more than seventy percent. That do support equality.

Are you gonna be writing at a four or a cylinder Roche war? All Dr it, actually, you know what? No. I am cheating. I have cheated my friends because I'm kind of behind on my my word count. I have been counting the words that I write for polygon dot com as part of my twenty eight he novel. Listen, listen. At me. But lost their some like subplot where your character works for Pollock. I was gonna say. I'm on about its scam. I get this. But I mean part of me is just like all right? Isn't the real solution? Just to lower your word count like. The row say cheat. Max sat down at his authentic nineteen twenties typewriter and pulled up his folder of research about futuristic device known as a low. We you. Nintendo actually has been around since the eighteen hundreds. So yeah, I know there were card company. Yeah. That would be. I mean, you you could write a thing about how he is using this this interesting Japanese card brand, then Mathis spoke to the CEO of Nintendo and said, what do you think our company will be doing two hundred years? Yes. And the CEO went into a sort of article that sounded like a video script perhaps about the we you and what Nintendo. Learn from its launch at applied to the launch of the Nintendo switch max said. That sounds interesting. I have no idea what you're talking about.

"But there's this video of him on Twitter that I can't stop thinking about where he like puts together this very beautiful lush thing of him going to the Grammys. And he thinks that it's it's making any thinks he's listening, so smart and so- fancies like showing off his Lubaton boots, and like all of his in a fancy, jewelry, and accessories, and fashion, and how much money you MRs spent on stuff and all you do when you wash this is yours. Just like this guy has no idea what he's talking about is so gross. Like, it's just it's, but I can't stop thinking about it. Like, my favorite thing. He is. Anyway, the Jacob will. But. Yeah. I did in planning like in event planning and step like that's the level of integrity. You're dealing with early. Alright gosh, what are you guys up to this week free one about you? So I want to tell you guys I have gone all in on Dyson. I've gone all in on dice abate. I gotta tell you. I have tried different groups of play hair, and I finally have figured out like the right combination spray to put in there and also masks like moisturizing mass in I swear to God, I've hair like a freaking dash, Ian. As it is is a maze ING, so I went ahead. Like, I like if this product is this good aren't going to get some worked Aisin stuff. Like, this is great. So I got their air filter product and found out that like the air like all my home is horrible for me. So we're plugged that in and I've also got their full blanched hairdryer that comes with it. I loved it in your thoughts on Christina. But they give you a partial hairdryer along with it doesn't go very it's not very s fast because small exactly it is small. So it's one of those things where like what I've been doing is basically just like using the round brush lot gel is like the the main kind of drying thing. And then going, you know, if I need to the other thing. Yeah, you're right. That that is that is fair. Like, I I could see I kind of thought the same thing. I like the styling things so much, and I'm like, how do I want to get the full hairdryer too? Again, I kinda do just because they're L tell you why my day to day thing. I don't think I would use it. But when I travel a lot of pieces to take that whole kit. Yeah. But whereas use like three things in, you know, I know, but but it comes in like, but it comes in this great box. And and I, and you know, I don't know. I'm just let me know bloody know your thoughts how using the two together. And and and I might I might use the rose gold AmEx to get. I'm so happy and February both. You know, what are you doing this week? So I just got back speaking at Purdue University that had a conference call Donner, Jim. And I gave a talk about why tech companies should talk to developers and their users and why those three kind of groups should talk together. And and I think we're in Louisville. I also talk to a couple of classes while I was there and met some really amazing people. I am heads down for a lot of work stuff this week. We have a really big tour called ignite the toward that is kicking off in Berlin on December fifth or sixth other. And I'm going to be doing that. And I'm going to be in Sao Paulo right after that. So I'm going to be in Finland right before that. So I got a heads down in our planning for that. Then it's free event will basically be going over a lot of things for IT professionals and developers and cod related topics. Now be giving talks and I'm super excited by. There's a lot of hard work involved that you're traveling so much again to like do all the all the cool outrage that a developer advocate should be doing. Yeah. Well, this is the crazy part. So my my my early December, and we will figure out rocket schedules. Once I have a better idea of actually places and what time zones I will be in to see if things will work is nuts..

"I mean to be able to explain something like that. Or even let you say that we wanted to go to museum in Stockholm, or, you know, halfway around the world a students in in classrooms here then can experience that if we have the full five team network. They can get that content. We can stream that right to the users all those students in the classroom until no longer can they perhaps be limited just fiscal classroom. But then they can start getting these experiences and really even with five t even interact with those experiences as well. There's a lot of technology being developed right now around how do we do robotics over five G and because the latency is so low. Oh, you have that real time interaction. And they just keep growing with that too. So if you think about gaming one of the problems, we have to do with multi player gaming said, you know, the graphical interface keeps getting richer and richer into we need larger bandwidth to transmit that data. And if you think about a multi player game, you want a realistic experience with this. And so if you're playing say a sporting gimmick a basketball game or football game. You know, I if you're dribbling down the court, you pass the basketball to a friend who's playing with you. You wanna almost have that real time? So that it seems like you're right. They're playing together. And and you almost need that new transformation technology to bring those enablers basically for consumers to enjoy content like that everybody, I know that played Titanfall very seriously it launched. We all moved our Xboxes as close as we could to our homes router to get that latency down because for heart point. It was so critical to say like right now trying to download red dead redemption to and has been taken like. It's gonna take like four hours on PSN. So last question before I let you go. You know, one of the things we saw when we were trying to roll out four g and LT was it wasn't really well defined like you had some different flavors of three g that were technically fast enough to qualify as four cheese. So they marketed it that way, and then, you know, before I did the interview I started reading about all the different l t e communication standards all over the world. It just made my head spin. Are we going to be doing any better this time with five G like Sarah set protocol that people have to subscribe to is there is there an open set of patents for people as we're working in this space. What does the future look like as far as consumers being able to understand if they're really getting five Jay stuff? Yeah. So so there there are multiple flavors, but it will benefit the consumer and let me go into little bit of detail. That. So the way that five G standards are now that there's two distinct standards of it that there's a sub six gigahertz standard, and then there's the millimeter wave so the millimeter wave enables those experiences like we talked about like if you're at like say, the world's top you're at the Super Bowl, and you want to stream content you need that that millimeter waves, you can have that high speed content..

"So so five G, especially this millimeter wave it requires a new network infrastructure, and it's called small cell densification. And what that means is basically, you're going to have smaller nodes think of the tower just being miniaturize, but you're going to place them a lot more frequently. So instead of saying, you know, a five mile radius, perhaps you have these almost every city block on a light tower. And then each of those nodes than can handle a significant portion of a load of a number of people on them until it can deliver that same grade experience to each person. And because there's more of these repeated more frequently. Then everyone can share in that great experience. You're not really slowing down one particular cell site. If he would or it's actually called the G note b but instead every you have it. So that each node then can handle. A certain amount of users. And then each of those users come in all transmit at very fast speeds. And so then when it starts to do is it starts naval those use cases like if everyone wants to stream at a concert. You know, everyone can you don't have to worry about having this laggy problem or wondering that oh, hey were overloading the network. It's not going to be a good experience for someone. Right. And one of the other vantage is for consumers is when it's more discentralising like that that it's it's good for any communication network to be structured that way. Because it creates more redundancies it creates more backups like there's less of a just to tell you a quick story. We had the LT tower near my home, go out a few weeks ago, and it was down for like everything around my neighborhood, which just had zero cell service for you know, it was for a day and a half. It was a really long time to get that up and running with more redundancy here is just a more comprehensive network. So, you know, this this really does have the potential to turn the US into kind of an always on always connected like society. Body where it's much work sessile deference. This you know, to me, this isn't just marketing speak. This is a really exciting direction for wireless communication. Absolutely. And I mean, the promises at least ten times upgraded in your network speed on your content. And if you think about that, I mean once you have that ten x speed. I mean, if we go back just a time again to two thousand eleven when we first rolled out LT, e we didn't have a whole lot of content. HD streaming really wasn't predominant. Then obviously Facebook was just in its infancy and things like Snapchat didn't exist yet. But yet all these continental -cations were then made available because we have these faster LT network speeds. Now, if we look at this another inflection point where we're gonna have these ten x speeds over even LT e you can only start to magin the use cases that will be developed in years to come. And so we start looking at things, you know, looks looks take the classroom for example classrooms. How do you make that more exponential to a student's right? And if you take things like augmented reality virtual reality. Now, if we can bring that to students and bring them back in time like, you know, Martin Luther King's, I have a dream speech. Someone could see that. And they could all see that live as if they were there were replaying the continent all of the VR goggles because we have the five G speed where they can see that almost real time it with no latency..

"We I developed this released a handsome. That had this capability in two thousand sixteen when we develop it at the time. We wanted to make sure those sixteen pens could accommodate a lot of different protocols in one of those was that USB three doubt one protocol USB than that allows us to get about five gigabits per second through those connectors that connector in the back. So once we had that, and we looked at five G theoretical max throughput of a five networks going to be almost about five gigabits per second. So he said, hey, why don't we actually develop this five technology and invalid the technology inside the modem on itself that can attach to that Mosey three device, and then we can bring to the to the market I and just to put this in perspective for rocket listeners. Like, if you remember with apple at a certain point, they had SSD throughput, which was three gigabytes per second than modern apple devices moved over to a six gigabyte per second standard for the s s d inside. Of your computer? So like what we're talking about with theoretical speed limits here, this is amazingly fast, at least a theoretical engineering point of view. Absolutely. It is and I mean, that's the interface at the device now if you think about the interface than with that five G mod to the network itself, obviously, it's gonna require new technologies than what LT offers today. I mean LT itself it keeps evolving. So it's it's a great technology, and we come to love all the, you know, the content we can consume over LT. You know, like, streaming HD, movies, etc. But really to get up to five gigabits per second. We started looking and working with different partners to see how can we get that faster speed and the answer to that really is going to a frequency. So your typical LT frequencies, they top out around two point five gigahertz or so in the US at least. And so these new frequencies that give this really fast throughput, it's called Milam. Kilometer wave technology, and there's two predominant frequencies had twenty eight gigahertz and at thirty nine gigahertz. And so when you're going at this faster speeds than we can also deliver Sarah higher frequencies being delivered this faster speeds than to the handsets. So so again, so when we were developing this technology, we looked at how do we incorporate that millimeter wave five g technology toward device? So that consumers can really see this huge monumental leap in network speed. Right. And just to give rocket Lister some perspective here if you're looking at like speed tested. My lt. You know, I phoned ten and that guts between five and twelve megabytes per second. So if you're talking about going up to even near this theoretical like five gigabytes per second limit this is really a game changer. Like, there's some people that think with five G connections. We could it like gets passed this last mile problem with Langdale network. Cable. It really would theoretically get to a point where you know. In theory. Our wireless networks would be as fast as like our cable networks this. I mean, how some potential to be a quantum leap forward. But this is why I wanted to ask you some of the roadblocks for for five G adoption here in the United States. I know you've partnered with Verizon and some of the cost of as I understand it the cost of like transforming a tower up to the five G standard. It's it's I mean, it's non trivial. This isn't just a soft update. You can push across your network like you would have to go through and like update all of the infrastructure. Correct. Yes. And so I mean, Motorola produces the handset side. But let me speak a little bit to infrastructure as well. So the obviously over motor with a tower, maybe it has a radius, and this is just an approximation of maybe five miles or so, and then you can have a, you know, several maybe even up to one hundred different users on. Single cell tower since one of the issues you have if. So if you're trying to livestream on concert where you have all these people trying to do the same task that you're trying to do the probably often see today is that when you're trying to do it livestream. That network really gets bogged down because as you add more users. It seems that the speech is not fast enough and the latency is slower such taking longer to for the content to be responsive..

"That's it's the first five G phone, and you it Kerr to me that I did not really know a lot about how you move to tirelessly new communication standard. You know? I was kind of like LT the name of as long term evolution. I thought the whole point of that was still like give an extensible standard. For this. It turns out totally wrong. It really been this a five G is very very interesting technology that has potential to solve a ton of things like not only giving everyone like a broadband speed in their phone, but also solve a huge issue here in Massachusetts, which is people outside of Boston. The city don't have access to you know. High speed internet. So I spoke to Motorola, and we had a really fascinating interview. Here. It is. So for next guest today. I am so honored to be here today with Doug Mikko who is director of product operations for Motorola. Thank you for being here dog. Oh, thank you so much for having me here today. Happy to do it. So I don't have to tell you when you do a podcast, especially tech podcast. There's no shortage of people that right? And they pitched their product to your show for just do a show, and we almost always say, no. But Motorola, you guys wrote me, and we said yes to this. Because this is a I think that's a very very interesting topic. So basically, you're right now, the United States is on four jeeze slash LT. And Motorola is about to roll out their five G network. And has it turns out this is a really interesting question. Like, how do you get from one communication standard to a new one? So Doug is here today to straighten all this out for us. So thanks for being here of thank you. So let's take it from the top. So how I know you're about to unveil new Motorola product is the first in the United States with this five G protocol. So like tell rocket listeners about that. What are you about to put out? Yeah. Definitely. So Motorola has always had a lot a heritage of really rich engineering. And so we've always we've considered ourselves the forefront of doing different RF developments. Whether it was the two g standard with GSM or the three g even the LT, Motorola, was one of the first in two thousand eleven released a handset. And if you look at that, you know for g handsets were really prevalent than in the later half of two thousand eleven in our injuring base, you know, when we started working on the five standard because we do participate in all the standards activities. We wanted to be the first also to roll out five G. And so we just we quickly learned there's some new technologies that we had to be able to develop and learn and characterize and just to make sure every. Thing would go very smoothly and that more or less just really reinvigorated are engine bases. Because the now we're just, you know, developing the latest and greatest technology, so. So we're looking at how do we bring this the market? I, you know, the competition as far as bringing this to the market, and we also wanted to make sure it was the fastest five G. So we did this by using our Moto Mods. So our Motomachi released in two thousand sixteen and we're using this as a particular development platform, right? It's like this like just to let rocket listers notes like magnetic snap because on the back of the, you know, the Moto handset that you guys are bringing out. So it's I wouldn't call it clunky. But it's it's definitely a device, and it goes on the back of this new handset that you guys are releasing and there's a whole range of those products like you can have cameras her new backs or battery packs, it's a it's a whole wide range of accessories to basically, go with your flagship phone, absolutely. So what it does? Is it transforms a functionality your phone with that snap in what they're is on the back of the devices Thurs? His modular connector, there's sixteen pins back there..

"Any final thoughts about the ipad. By the way. I think are kinda like busted in there. No, I think I think what we're going to have more of talks a working to have more next week. That's true cynwyd sue think that anything say about the macbook air a joyous. Turn over one foot care. I mean, that's kind of a little on the planet. She said, she was I basically the settlement issue is welcomed by it. So. Artists. Yep. Yeah. I will say this like I still I mean, I I'm in some ways actually more like annoyed by people's reaction to the macbook air. Then then then by the ipod because I feel like what do you expect from the macbook air, you know, what I mean, integrate, computer? But I believe it's exactly what you think it's going to be I do feel like they're now at a weird I feel like this. I feel like the twelve inch MAC book does not need to exist night. Totally. I just as much as I love it that it's not need to this. And I also feel like very strongly the thirteen inch macbook pro without touch bar does not need to exist. I know that it's a more powerful processor that difference is not enough. If you're going to spend more money for the more powerful processor, you need to suck it up and get the touch Bora version like that's to me, you know, where where the line is. I feel like the the MAC book air should kill those other things and just they could've just made the new MAC book the MAC book air, although I. Oh, who like dealer I love data's burden. His video review about this being upgraded for people who have been clinging onto their old macbook airs waiting waiting for an update. Yeah. I will say that. I know that the performance isn't that much better than like, whatever the last process respect they put on it was and and that's a fair. Critique, but it's also not it's fair in the sense that. Yeah, if you just look at raw numbers and raw scores that's going to be accurate. But I also feel like at this point most people who have macbook airs the issue that they're having with it, isn't that? They can't do whatever they need to do with it. It's that they don't have a modern screen. It's that the George isn't fast. It's it's, you know, some of those other things, and I feel like, you know, it's going to be an upgrade it's not going to be maybe the upgrade you would have wanted. But we're also the point now where computer processors are kind of at a plateau. So yeah, I don't know. But unlike I've had processors, which do Jake Langley. Exactly, I mean, you know, and you can almost get the. Sense that apple very much wants to release like a like a MAC book air with an h Welbeck's processor. That would be you know, what I mean? Like, I feel like that's gonna would be kind of their holy grail. Because the reason they're using this cutdown processor. In addition to probably cheapness is because they want to get better power out. They went better battery life. So speaking of other technology, that's kind of plateaued always thought that phones had come as far as they can go. Well, my friends Sam or wrong said your form factor is outdated, and we're going to show you the future..

"There seemed to be a sense of frustration. The thing that's holding. This back is not hardware but software and in the past legit in the past that hasn't necessarily been the case in the past. You could almost say, well, we're not there from a hardware perspective. And we're not there from Soffer perspective. But here you can say definitively. The hardware is powerful enough. It is decisions made on the software side that are what's holding it. And I think that that's that's the sense of frustration. I kind of got from some reviews is that it's a great device, and you can do a lot of things with it. But if you're really looking for an ipad in the way, most people use, ipads, you should get the three hundred twenty nine dollars version. And honestly, I think that that's Apple's entry level. I think that's their entry level device. Like would not even like MAC, you know, people say, oh, we don't have. They don't have a an entry level MAC book anymore. The five hundred dollar, you know, get into ecosystem MAC mini is now eight hundred bucks and indifferent. And my response not is. Yeah, I think that that's now the the ipod because that has a keyboard. It has the pen support it it does a lot of the other things, and it can be for a lot of people, especially people who don't need. I know the extra fidelity and features and whatnot of the pro it can be a very usable machine and in very comparable to below end. Chromebook in my opinion. The problem is is that when you can figure it out. I spent sixteen hundred dollars with the case in taxes stuff on my ipod pro-. So that's more than a MAC book as more their macbook pro. So that's and that's when I think it's fair for people to say, okay. What are you getting with this? And is this really going to be the best for your needs. And I won't over. Myself until I do my review. But as I said last week, I mean, I basically knew when I bought it that I'm paid all this money for this thing that I'm basically just gonna watch Netflix and play the the family guy. A game that I that. I play. Oh my gosh. No. I just wanna say late. The a lot of the things Neil. I was complaining about what this it feels like low-hanging for to me. It seems very easy to fix Christina. I was talking to you about a great use case for the ipad being like using as a portable podcasting device. I mean, we all travel all the time. I would love that the thought of having a USB Mike to plug in which he said works with Karaj, man. And then you pointed out while you can't record clean audio. It would have to be mixed down. That's a very fair critique of it. But that's easy to fix like allowing the files out like to access USB drive. If figuring out how sandbox that make everything safe. That's a relatively easy fix. So. You know, you we we held Microsoft to the standard for many years it just because they promised to fix something or the can fix something in the future is not a reason to go buy it, and you should not buy an ipad today if you want to get that done. But I do think it's moving in the right direction. Clearly, and you know, I can really see like with IOS thirteen and fourteen. I can really see this becoming a totally useful device. Sounds good.

"No. We stand for Russia. Did she? Well, she had us systems. Here's the problem. She had a system that worked great. She had an Epson that worked with air print, and that she could print and scam from it, and it was awesome. Right. And then Epson didn't update their drivers and it stopped working. So I have to buy another printer to you know, like, so so I mean, I know there are solutions. I'm saying that the problem is solutions aren't maintained in the same way. And and there's still not a corporate printing solution, which if you're trying to say, this is a pro device do kind of feel like is a that's fair, you know, like, and I realize not everybody prince, and I don't print that often. But when you need to print you need to print is there really rating it is air print in. There's not a bluetooth option. Is that a dumb question? I don't go to about printer stale. I don't either I don't either. Yeah. I don't either. I mean, I think the air pro was kind of their their design philosophy because when they invented air print, and when they introduced that that was before they even had a file system like that was user accessible, like the files that exist. Like, it was, you know, so so it's basically it's a wifi kind of protocol is I think what Yeah. they're. Yeah. Wifi but why not bluetooth? I assume for fidelity. And I it probably in theory. I think that they were probably hoping that the big industrial, you know, multi-thousand dollar printers would adopt air print why they haven't I'm not really sure. I mean, chrome OS has has issues too. Although it's gotten better. But but chrome OS still has massive issues with printing as well. It's it's one of those things that nobody talks about that. I always rail on because always been in the situations where I need to print something. And I I don't even have a home. Right. So not a common thing. But it's one of those things that's frustrating enough. You know that you're like, okay. You gotta figure out like how do I how do I deal with this? If I'm in a situation where I don't have access to a printer fair enough. I guess this brings us to another super important point. Which was the external storage issue. Yeah. Right. Right. Which which I think, you know, I understand not wanting to let apps have that ability to distort things because you you don't wanna get complicated that way, but I feel like you should at least be able to save or import from the external storage. Yeah. Definitely. It's indefensible, especially if they've got full-fledged Photoshop on their clip. Let people use extra toga speechwriter. Yeah. Okay. Totally. I mean, I mean, and I know that adobe adobe push will be in what Apple's push will be be like, oh, use your Dobie, creative cloud account and pull things from your library that way and fair enough. But sometimes, you know, the speed isn't going to be there. Like, it'll be interesting to see if you know as a adobe rush gets better. And if they bring premier at some point or final cut or whatever comes to the ipad pro because it would be a great video editing machine. I think like how they're gonna deal with with the nas- in the the the, you know, the the storage issue that that so many video editors have network storage. How they're going to deal with that for pulling things off if it's just gonna be okay or just gonna pull things off of WI fi and transfer that way and just trust that or or if it'll be you know, if there will be an option where you can plug in ghetto to quickly transfer gigabytes and gigabytes of files, I don't know I was just gonna say in our conversation last week, we talked about all. Apple's many, laptops. And where the ipad pro would stock up. I think we all in that conversation. We're like. It's they say they're gonna but it's probably not going to be a replacement, and it seems like the reviews are really just confirming that there's nothing better or worse than we could have hoped. It is what we what we thought. It might be. Yeah. Yeah. I would give it. I think though that we're getting closer. I think that what's frustrating. What what at least what I read from the reviews..

"The problem is. When you are not used to that. And when you have other things you need to do there is still this compromise. And no company is figured out the balance. But then also like there there still limitations like the devices that Neil lie in the virtual view was able to to kind of us, but the USB port and also just the workflow itself not being convenient for people who are doing these like high volume photo editing tasks tasks, for example, where if you're charging that much for a pro device for PROST use it being able to work with this particular, Mike microphone or be able to import photos directly into the photo editor without kind of using that particular file infrastructure as a middleman like those things are user three user friendly things to be. Able to do and I have to say like when I saw that part of it from my point of view, I was like new allies going through plug Elise things with the space e into the ipad. Pro I was like holy crowd. Look at all these like, you know, like these things that they brought into, you know, Iowa's for MAC OS, and the have all that hooked up. Now. Like, I was sitting it like, wow, look at all these libraries, they added to this. I. Cool thing I do legitimately thinking, it's a cool device. It's wonderful. Like, I'm not down on the ipad pro now. But I do think he did let me find the part because when he started he wanted to plug in a printer, and I was like, okay, man. Sure. Like, no, no one's going to want to use it for inter with their ipad fro. But then I thinking, oh, no do you do. I mean, actually, this is I was going to. I was going to say that this is actually a problem that that Apple's had. Parrilli longtime with I've had I mean, they have air prime air print isn't really rapidly supported, and if you're somebody who is in a corporate environment, and you're trying to prince you can't do it from your ipad. And that is hugely frustrating when you need to print something. And if you're using something as a tool like my mom, one of the main reasons, she can't only have an ipad. And the reason I'm going to be buying her MAC book air is because sometimes she wants to print scam things, and that's not something that you can do with a plumb on on the ipad at is just so I just bought at HP envy. And I've been amazed that I set up airport on it. It works frigging flawlessly with the IRS or my iphone or anything in the house. That's awesome scanning printing, I can I and. Okay, dawned by it. It's like, yeah..

"So mine arrived today, but I I was travelling so that I have rocketed play with. He was going to kind of come Netflix. He's going to come. But I feel like with the I Pat you kind of almost like the inverse thing where now they're trying to kind of do what the other companies, and I'm gonna put Google into this path to because I think Google, you know, they they've never really been able to decide if if if chrome is good enough for to do from OS is is. A tablet OS or if it's desktop boa. They seem to be kind of having that existential crisis themselves, and I personally haven't been overly impressed with the way that Android apps work and chrome OS, but that will presumably get better over time. And I think Apple's issue is because all these companies all their approaches are having kind of existential crisis. And I think Apple's crisis is that you have the silicon which by all accounts is incredibly powerful is more powerful than Apple's more most powerful lives in terms of single core scores, right? Like, it is it is killing it from a power perspective. And and the potential there is massive like you can do a lot of stuff on this machine. This is genuinely when they say pro has that potential. The problem is the software in many ways still treats it like it is an ipad from twenty ten and as much as things have evolved and have changed in Iowa's for the ipad. There is still a decisive. Give reason that says, you can't do certain things. I mean, I thought it was very fair to point out that you have a USB seaport that you're talking about how you can connect all these accessories. You can play back, you know, four or five K video, you know, using the US BC. You can connect with an extra monitor. You can connected to cameras, but you can't connect an external storage device and view it in the files app, and then import things that way you have to use a series shortcut. If you want to import things into light room the way that they have it set up, and you don't want a mysterious showed us in that isn't available yet to right right shortcut that to get all your raw files off your camera roll and not keep them there to import them until I room library like you have to find these hacks. And that's been the thing. Like people like a itchy who, you know, is is a huge proponent of his hugely successful in his great at making his ipad, his primary, computer. I love that. He does that. And I love that. He's been successful that way, but he has to jump through a lot of hoops. And so I think that it's hard when you go to an audience, and you say, this is a computer. And then you can't do things that computer can do that said, I do think you're right Bree in that. I feel like sometimes the way. The ipad is looked at. And I'm very guilty of this myself is we look at it from the perspective of people who already are used to the existing -puter paradise. You know, we know what works for us. And we see all the deficiencies. I said this on Twitter, and I was a carrying a Massari from creative strategist analysts and adjacent smell had had us both on his podcast. Download. Last week to talk about this. And I mentioned this on Twitter. And I said this on their podcast as well that, You you know, know. I feel like if I didn't know that background like if I were just starting with computing today. And I was given an ipad pro, I don't know if what the things that. I can't do if I would even know that like I would just I would still be able to kind of get around. I would find those work arounds. And in some ways, I might be more productive or or like things better. So I feel like there's a certain class of people in that class is getting bigger and bigger every day because they're growing up with these devices who this is what they're gonna I. And of course, they're going to see an ipad, computer because to them that the touch I roll in these in these these apps in this experience is what they do..

"This was actually after I'd already run the why like when his RT like never had a chance thing. But it basically basically have been leaked there were supposed to be a surface, mini, basically like an ipad mini a baby surface. Not unlike now in some ways the surface go, but but it completely different implementation. And it was pulled from the announcement, basically at the last minute they come really close to putting it into production. They'd probably had pre production units and associate kill the project. And I wrote a thing saying that that was the right move because it lost on tablets because the reason the service pro three is successful is because it stopped trying to be an ipad and started embracing the fact that it's really a laptop and and anything that's true, right? Like when my own surface go review, but I've said is if you're going to primarily use a tablet as a tablet, the apps, aren't there the experience of it just it's it's not the same. But if you want something that you're going to primarily use as a baby. Computer, then it works. Really? Well, and I think that it's it's really good. It's kind of a, you know, a very very similar to the twelve inch macbook in terms of performance for a lot of passing if you're just doing what rousing and some, you know, text editing like, you know, code stuff. It's great. It's not going to be good enough for Photoshop. It's not gonna be good enough for games. But also, it's a good thing for for not flex. So I feel like the ipad in some ways is in a difficult position. And I should say I have mine, but I haven't been able to play with it yet..

"And we want to talk about some other products that may may or may not have impressed people. Gosh, so macbook air and ipad pro reviews are out and we were super duper excited about at least the ipad pro last week. And that actually has been called kind of neutered and people are speaking of the MAC book air are saying it is a MAC book air. It's that machine is not blowing minds and exceeding expectations. It's doing exactly what we expected, but the ipad pro has been disappointing for some people. What what are you guys think about these initial reviews rolling in? Well, I mean, let's take this at the top. Like there were the one review I feel very not unfairly. So but very critical was the verge. You know in. I thought some of it was like, you know, they're still going after the ipad pro for not having a headphone, Jack. I feel like that ship is sailed. I understand your point. You don't need to keep making repeatedly, you know, like, the that's my feeling on it. Get Wall Street Journal was also very cool on it. I think overall people they felt very cool on the reviews, and the reason was like Iowa's twelve they said if you've already used an ipad with Iowa twelve there wasn't a lot of value there in in particular the verge. They went through like the pipeline of say pulling photos off of a USB stick in home possible. But still was today in the overall argument really felt like it's like apple themselves in the keynote keeps saying this is more powerful than a computer. They keep writing pairing to a PC. And you know is journalists they felt like it was their job to kind Oh, of. sit there and say, okay. Well, this is more powerful than a PC. Let's compare this. Let's basically fact Chuck novels claims and put it up against what other PC's can do. I think generally speaking, the, you know, the results were this is still very compromised device that said and love your take on this Christina. I couldn't help but feel it was just a little bit unfair. Like, I am right there. And I think I O S twelve a has it clearly has worked to do that said if I didn't own a first gen ipad pro like for me. I don't see a reason to upgrade from like that to this. That's not worth two thousand dollars for me. But he's I is being a good device. I think with Photoshop there. That's clearly a very compelling argument. Like, the hardware itself is good. I couldn't help but feel that maybe. He did the ipad pro is getting a level of scrutiny that say some of Microsoft's products might not be getting if that makes sense. Yeah. I mean, I think that it both gets more in less scrutiny. I think that the bar is both higher and lower to be totally honest because when the surface, I came out for very good reason. It was panned the surface are T was decimated as it should have been. I gave that terrible review and the original surface. You know, didn't really do it. It said it wasn't. In fact, it wasn't until the surface pro three. And I remember even writing thing about how you know. This was years before I started working at Microsoft, and I wrote it analyses once they finally killed when his RT in NY, they didn't need to know..

"As far as other uses of it just in in my office for work. There's just nothing that I feel it could it could do for me. And the way that that things were pre the way that I was seeing things that were not kind of totally visually. There wasn't great visual fidelity, and sometimes things would flicker in weird ways. And it was just like not it was not the greatest experience. So I'm sure that there is room to improve. But I don't know what they would what they are improving towards if that makes sense know. Well, that's depressing. Yeah. Yeah. No. It was we've spent so many of us talking about this company, and it's been so many, you know, they've they've raised so much money. I would hope that the tech could could be useful. But it seems like I mean, how would you rate this like when you first in part of it? I know it's different. Because this is this is coming after all these things. But when you first used Oculus, Simone, Uber impressed right mind was frigging blown when I I use Oculus. Yeah. Mine too mine too. And so you didn't have any feeling like that. No. Where would you rank it right now kind of even in comparison to kind of the experience to Oculus five, you know? And I know this is a are not the are. But, but but just in terms of the the experience of being a using it and feeling immersive feeling immersed in the environment. How would you compare it to the other devices out there that you've used I guess they'd want to put it at a five makes sense to me? I I I certainly I'm interested in spending more time with it and poking around in the other things that can do. But just my initial experience was so underwhelming. And so in in certain ways and transparent and other ways that like the images were so yeah. Inter in terms of just a first time user experience. I put it at a five. Can you tell us what game you're going to play that wasn't ready? I don't remember the name of it. I had a really silly name. I wonder if I wonder if it's on Google. Yeah. I was just curious because I I, you know, I mean like, I think everything you're saying is is completely dead on or I haven't used it. But I totally respect your experience. But I would do you think that better than a better software demo would do better would would offer better experience? Do you think like how much of this? Do you think was was angry birds? How much of it was angry Pertz, Fulton know all the all the problems that I have are all the problems that I had with it were on the hardware side because like angry birds functioned, totally fine. I put it down on the ground. And then I, you know, the the birds flew automatically into my controller or. Yeah. Into the controller over which was superimposed slingshot, which was against my transparent and sometimes flickered in and out of life. The went the one cool thing that happened was there is. One time. I got to close there is you can only get so close to the pigs in their tower. So there was kind of like a haptic wall there that can the controller revive right? When he got too close and one time I did that. And I had turned my hand around in the bird was like looking at me. And he was really hacker. That was pretty cool. Pretty awesome. And then you pull the trigger and like pullback with your hand to stretch the slingshot in than let it go. But yeah, the the mechanics on it. We're not the most thrilling, and then just the the awkwardness of navigating with that small field of view and then. The the way that the slingshot kept flickering in and out. It was kind of just like if felt low budget. Even if the hardware itself when I was like touching. It did actually like the way it looked and the way the hardware felt was nice. It just didn't work right anyway. So that's my femur say you evaluate it at maybe only two point three billion instead of two point four billion. That's how much so harsh. Yeah. Okay. No that's fair. All right..

That's right. All right. I'll work on that. Okay. Catch. Holy moly. I'll say at every time. I say something innuendos like how amazing it has been to be on rocket for four years of my frigging life. You guys I was in my first job out of college. When we started this show. I was actually thinking about this like when we started. I worked at mash and live to New York City and breathe was still, you know, heads down with with with giant space, Scott.

We've never had one crossword to each other ever im- now years of this show not one like I mean, it's I look forward to this every single week. It's one of the best working relationships I've ever had. And this is why you've if I win in twenty twenty I'm going to keep doing rocket 'cause I love doing the show so much it we work well together because every time one of us is like can I be fifteen minutes late the other? Yeah. You can. Oh, it's amazing. No, I agree with you re. Like, I don't know if I've ever had a such as the stained working relationship where I've done the same thing every single week with the same people, and I look forward to it every single time and bringing you, and I we knew each other. We'd met in person we knew each other from the internet, but we weren't like super close, you know, Simone. I didn't know who you were. And this could have been a recipe for disaster. They should what does he could have been one of those things where like we didn't have chemistry. We didn't get along and whatnot and seven it's happened. And I want to thank all the listeners for this is I've met two of my friends that will have to the rest of my life. I get to do this with you with you to every single week. And I look forward to it. And I loved it like feels like this is a conversation that we have with everybody listening. Whether it's one of you or one hundred over you or thousand of you, or you know, beyond that like we get to we get to talk about the things we want to talk about whether it's hard. Attack or movie pass? I mentioned movie pass in my in my talk at Purdue yesterday. Incidentally, the big laughs from the crowd. That's example of how how to break users trust, and and and how you don't want to be movie past. But you know, we we like what whatever the thing is like we've we've kind of developed this relationship and and conversation, and it's still very so wild and so different than I thought that it would be when I when breezy shots, me and said you wanna do this podcast?
