What the New ‘War of the Currents’ Means for Decentralization

"So the first piece we're going to read today is called Starlink Verizon 5G and crypto, with the new war of the currents means for decentralization. It's by Tim Kraft's who's the founder and CEO of chirp. And first appeared as part of coin desk's crypto 2023 series. Whether it's Verizon courting government contracts for its 5G upgrade, blockchain startups deploying routers with crypto mining incentives or Elon Musk making Starlink available to the Ukrainian resistance, broadband and Internet of Things IoT technologies are the new battleground for companies, ideologies, and visionaries. While it is still too early to tell whether there will be a singular or divergent solution, the new technological framework for interoperability will have ideology embedded in its code. Crypto and freedom advocates should ensure decentralization as a principle is enshrined and cooperate to realize and expand on Nikola Tesla's vision of a decentralized ubiquitous network. In the late 1800s, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and George Westinghouse found themselves in an ideological battle over the future of electricity. Threatened by Tesla and Westinghouse's widely adopted alternating currents, AC power system, Edison built out his direct current D.C. stations while deploying ruthless public relations campaigns to undermine his rival's credibility. As the three men urgently took their products to market and built out supporting infrastructure, corporations on the periphery also competed for market share, including brush electricity company, which installed its arc lighting solutions in key regions including New York City. The AC system went out and became the gold standard underlying all electrification. An important lesson remains for those developing new architecture. The best technology can drive only when it is also widely adopted. After developing the AC system, Tesla devoted much of his life to revolutionizing wireless electricity. The inventor envisioned infinite energy via a global network of towers that would electrify the world without wires.

J6 Committee Abandons Efforts to Subpoena Phone Records

"Out by accident online. Let's put the headline up from the fake news outlet that is CNN. January 6th, committee winds down and is abandoning its efforts to subpoena phone records before the week before Christmas a year ago. I arrived home with a little FedEx envelope from Verizon saying Nancy wants your phone records and your why phone records and your children's phone records and we're going to give them. I filed an injunction 12 months later, they've dropped it. Nancy's given up. What's going on guys? They are worried about the same tactics being used against them. They know that this is the beginning of the anti ship anti Pelosi tactics. And I hope the Republicans have the cojones to do what the Democrats because I go back to the independent council law. And everybody loved it when it was being used against the Republicans. And then Bill Clinton took office and it was used against the Democrats. And you know what? It was just a miracle up there on the hill. They decided not to renew it when it had run its course. Let me ask you, can you imagine the GOP after January putting in a subpoena for John Brennan's phone records? Or someone else, a former cabinet official from the Trump administration? I think they should. But can you imagine it? I want to imagine it. I hope it will happen. And if they don't do it, they're going to disappoint a lot of people and they're going to show they don't have the strength of character necessary to do the job. This isn't about taking depositions and bringing people up. That's a part of the process. But before you do that, you need records to cross examine people about. Phone records, emails. They need to do exactly what they did to the Republicans. Just like the independent counsel law. They have to hurt the Democrats as much as the Democrats were willing to hurt Republicans. And until they feel it, it's never going to stop. All right,

Matt Peterson and Charlie on the Gravitational Pull Against Wokeism

"Of my theories about what corporations is that in the year of 2020, you had some simultaneous, let's say, influxes of really bad ideas, hatred of Donald Trump, lockdowns, a yearning for meaning, but also cheap money. And one of the theories that I've been putting forward is that when you have artificially high profits and you have tech companies in particular that just exploded during a reaction to the pandemic, that you have a lot of money floating around to subsidize bloated HR departments. However, when the economy starts to crater a little bit, and budgets need to be cut in HR departments to be kind of scaled back, the wookies are going to be maybe laid off and not treated as nicely and kindly. Am I misguided there? Do you think there might be finally some gravitational pull against wokeism? Yes and no. I mean, I think there is some evidence that this has been going on. But radically depends on the kind of corporation you're talking about. Let me give you an example. I mean, I think there's a lot of big corporations like, say, Verizon, I think it's a good example. It's hopelessly woke, it's sort of like, it's just being cannibalized. Over time, I don't think they care in a way. And something like Disney, for instance, as well. They've lost a lot, but I see them as on a suicidal course that they're not going to recover from. They're not going to fire all their woke creatives. On the other hand, there's other businesses that this gives the people, if there's not people who realize the problem, this gives them ammo to help to scale and trim back. But unfortunately, I don't think it's enough to reverse the cultural revolution, although it can be useful to people in those businesses who are engaged in the fight.

How Should We Approach Big Business? Newt Gingrich Explains

"I want to ask you, it's not just about government power, though, that gives people anxiety. It's also the amount of cultural and corporate power that the left has been able to assume. You talk about this in the book, but how are we to approach Google that could arguably be just as or even more powerful than parts of our government, or Disney that has control over our children's, what their consuming. Big government socialism is it also incorporate cultural and economic power? Yeah, it has to and also, let me take those two examples. We clearly are going to have to ultimately set some kind of rules of the road for these big Internet companies. I mean, we would not allow AT&T or Verizon to have the kind of control over our communication, our conversations, that these companies now exercise. In terms of Disney, I think somebody ought to be following a stockholder lawsuit. Yes. The Disney president made a decision, which has cost Disney and enormous amount of money in the collapse of a stock. And they ought to be held accountable for the when you start making on economic policies. You know, the same thing happened in Atlanta with the Major League Baseball All-Star Game where Coca-Cola and Delta two of the biggest corporations in Georgia, both of them acted against their own economic interest by siding on a totally false lie. Siding with the left and demanding that they All-Star Game being moved.

"Biden's busy reaching a deal with 20 U.S. Internet service providers to provide free quote unquote Internet access to poor people. Now, I don't know why we're stopping at the Internet access. We're reach a deal to give poor people free cars. Come on, grandpa, Joe. Give him a lot of free stuff. I wonder what the timing is behind Joe Biden suddenly coming up with a deal with AT&T Verizon Comcast and others to provide high-speed Internet access for $30 a month that will then contain a federal subsidy so that the government will pay the $30 a month for low income families. You and I are now expected to fork over money, our taxpayer dollars, so that poor people have Internet access.

"But at the same token, they also recognize that they're responding to a disaster. And so they really work very closely in the emergency operations centers. And with the commanders of those scenes to make sure that Verizon is bringing what's necessary to the situation. Got it. Now, talking about disasters, I have to bring up 2018 when your company throttled the fire department's unlimited data back in California during a wildfire. I'm curious, I know that predates Verizon frontline, but I'm curious what or how some of the lessons learned from that kind of influenced how the service is provided today. Yeah, absolutely. You know, it's a great question, and then it's an important one. Our public safety rate plane plans are built very specifically for public safety. And we want to ensure and we have an entire team of sales professionals that are out there ensuring that our public safety customers are on the public safety rate plans that they are entitled to. And so our entire focus is ensuring that when you are a public safety customer and you have a mission to serve and that communication device that's in your hand is the communication device that you're going to be using when you need it most in those disasters, the examples that we just went through. It's absolutely crucial that we know who that customer is and we get them onto the right public safety rate plan with the right capabilities that we described earlier. So having access to priority, having access to preemption, having access to our full public safety solution portfolio, that is absolutely crucial. And that will ensure that that does not ever happen again. Got it. Looking at the situation, again, 2021, lots and lots of disasters. It's obviously hard to predict, but how are you preparing for 2022 or for this year and the rest of this year? I mean, do you think that we'll have the sort of the same rate, especially given sort of changing climate and weather or how are we preparing for things? The worst case scenario. Yeah, so we don't get into the business of prognostication on weather forecasts. But we know enough about the fact that you should always plan for the worst and hope for the best. It is one of the reasons why we continue to harden the network. And continue to invest in things like generator penetration..

"So more first responders rely upon Verizon frontline for not only reliable connectivity, but also for ensuring that they have the most professional set of resources available to them, they have redundancy and backup. And that they have the ability to ensure communication when they need it most. How does that differ from obviously from some of that kind of brief description? It is different than the traditional Verizon wireless service, but what exactly are you getting in the package, I guess? Yeah, absolutely. And you know, it's very exciting for us to see. Our agencies seeing a distinction between Verizon's frontline capabilities and the competition. So a couple of examples, nearly 80% of our generators are on nearly 80% of our cell towers are on generator backup. We have 500 deployable assets that assist first responders during crisis efforts. We have an entirely dedicated disaster response team that's made up of professionals that were former first responders, and sometimes service members. We have over 200 certified drone pilots that assist in things like blue sky training exercises, but maybe more importantly those dark sky disasters. We have many one of a kind solutions that have been developed entirely with first responders in mind. So an example of that is Thor..

"Hey there listeners, it's Bret Molina? Welcome back to talking tech. So this happened to me last the other night actually. I was saying last night because I'm recording this on a Tuesday, but you're hearing this on a Wednesday. So this actually happened Monday night. I got this really weird spam text message. And it basically said, thanks for paying your march bill. Here's a special gift with a random link. Here's the thing that was weird about it. It was coming from my phone number. And apparently it's not just me. If you were someone that is on Verizon wireless network, this might have happened to you too. I write about this in a story that you can read on tech USA Today dot com. Verizon said it is working to block these spam texts that have popped up that customers say they've received from their own numbers. So again, what's happening is they'll get a text message coming from their number and it says they've paid a bill in March. Thanks for paying. Here's a free gift. Here's a shortened link, which again a reminder if you get a link like that, don't click on it. Here's Verizon's statement, quote, our team is actively working to block these messages and we have engaged with the U.S. law enforcement to identify and stop the source of this fraudulent activity. End quote. A lot of this started recently because several Verizon subscribers went to the wireless carriers community forum and they talked about getting these spam texts. Also we saw a lot of it spread through social media. Through Twitter, Reddit, other outlets, where these spam texts pop up. And they're coming directly from their own cell number. So again, a reminder, if you get this, it's interesting because when I first saw it, it almost looked like, oh, this is Verizon telling me I've paid my bill. But that's not the case. It is spam, don't click on the link whatever you do. One thing that I did on my iPhone was I would try to delete the message and it would say I couldn't delete it, but you could report it as junk. So you can report it as junk and what that does is that sensitive Verizon, it deletes it from your phone, and you're all set. But this is a really interesting twist to all the phishing spam text messages that you might get, because it seems like it's happening a lot lately. Spam calls, spam texting. Really frustrating. Especially when you see your own phone number pop up on there. And of course, the first thought you have when you're doing this is am I reporting my own number as spam. I haven't gotten any indication that's the case. But again, that's something to watch out for. Our Verizon excuse me says it's on top of that. So we'll keep an eye on this. And we'll provide any updates on this situation. Make sure to go to tech USA Today dot com for more. Listeners, let's hear from you. Do you have any comments, questions, show ideas.

"This is wisdom from the top. I'm guy Roz. I have an as you really started to push into the wireless side of the business. I think by 2003, Verizon, wireless becomes the number one wireless provider in the U.S., but then I want to skip ahead a couple of years because a huge shift happens in 2007 with the release of the iPhone. At that time, in 2007, did you have a sense of how significant the iPhone was going to be for the wireless business? So in 2006 or 7, I'm not sure when it was. It might have been 6. I attended the Allen conference in Idaho. And bob Iger had the iPhone he was walking around with it. From Disney. Disney, right. And to be clear, the iPhone had not been released to the public at that point, right? Correct. And when he saw me, he put it away and I remember I went back to the office and I said, so what's going on with this little device that I was walking around with. In our guys had heard about it, they said it's pretty significant, but it's secretive and Apple has not shared it with a lot of people and he hadn't shared it with us. So we started pestering apple and eventually Steve Jobs within a couple of months came to visit us in our location in New Jersey. And we never had the chance to carry the iPhone in 2007. He came there to explain that they were going to have a global phone on a global standard that was the, that was the GSM standard. The GSM, not the CDMA that the U.S. phones. Correct. And so AT&T was the GSM standard in the European carriers and he was going to select one, carry in every market to carry the iPhone. And we told them that, look, our network was really good. You should carry it on a network, and he said, I've already designed it, and it's not going to happen. So we were not even considered in the first contract for the iPhone. Because he wanted GSM and you did not have that. We did not. But our guys knew it was going to be a game changer. And it didn't take three months before the market said it was a game changer. And so we were doing well, but AT&T was doing really well in selling iPhones. Did that make you guys nervous when you saw that AT&T had this exclusive contract with Apple for the iPhone? Because people were clamoring to get iPhones. I mean, customers were leaving Verizon and signing up for AT&T just to get the iPhone where you guys nervous, did that cause anxiety inside Verizon? Absolutely, it did. And we would have meetings every Monday morning that we would beat ourselves up about how we're going to fix this. And so there were two things that occurred in that time period that were interesting. So the first was, one of our really brilliant engineers and marketing people said, we need to talk to Motorola and Google and all these other people. So whether it was a Motorola phone or Samsung or whatever other phones they were within a year or so about a year and a half, we started to get some traction with selling a phone that had the Android operating platform on it, wasn't as good as the iPhone agreed, but it stem some of the pain that was coming from sales from the iPhone. The other thing that occurred was AT&T's network was imploding and they could not handle the traffic that was being generated by sales of iPhones. So their service was suffering a great deal. I don't know if you remember, but there was all sorts of TV shows and late night shows and everybody was complaining about the iPhone, meaning that you could you can download an app, but you couldn't make a phone call. Yeah. And so they were suffering from that. And of course they were working hard, but they would just overload it. So about the third and a half year into the deal, I went to see Steve and said Steve. So what about opening up this to us? And he was very, he was very good. He said to me, you know, I even look, I'm a good partner. I'm not going to do anything to disturb my deal with AT&T. When the 5 years are up, we'll talk. Okay, so I left call him up 6 months later and said, I want to come out and see you. He says, come on, come out and see me. And I said, same thing. You know, your iPhone is being impacted by their bad network and you should be thinking about this. So he looked at me when I'm missing a beat, he said, you know, I was at my dentist's office yesterday. And while he was drilling on my cavity, he reminded me that he was, he kept his calls kept dropping from his iPhone. And he didn't say another word. He just changed the subject, okay? And so we just kept talking, and I said, listen, I got to find a way to help you with this. And he didn't say anything. I got back to the office, and I told my team the story. And instantly, a couple of my guys said, so here's what we're going to do. We're going to call them up and we're going to volunteer to put a shell tower on his campus for free, let them use our network. We don't care what they do. We won't ask any questions. And just see what they come up with. 30 days later, after we put the tower up, we were in negotiations for creating an iPhone that had the CDMA capability in it. So what's that story all about? It's resiliency. It's that, you know, you get delta competitive blow and you need to keep grinding. You have to keep grinding. Remember, our network was strong, we kept the whole can you hear me now thing? You remember that? Sure. And then of course, once we got the iPhone, I mean, we just exploded. And then I retired. And then you retired, right? You get the iPhone January of 2011 to July of 2011, you retire, you stepped down as a CEO. Yeah, I was done. Right. And the team just took it and ran with it. And they did great. Why did you feel like it was time for you to step down as a CEO of Verizon? So I used to have this conversation with the board. You know, my frame of reference in my expertise was understanding the industry structure, understanding the government and recognizing the potential of the technology. And putting the company on a path to become more relevant in the technology going forward. So I think once we did the GTE deal and then the alt deal and then the MCI deal, which is huge, I even tried to buy out Vodafone during those days, couldn't do it. But I kind of felt that my narrative had a natural ending to it. And that what was necessary is for somebody that was really steeped in data and wireless. Would take the company to the next chapter of its journey. And you know, I was lucky. Lowell mcadam, who basically was with us the whole time and built the wireless business. He was to the wireless industry as I was to the landline and the prior generation. And so I was impeached with that and thought it was perfect. I've been you from like from the age of 19, right? You're in the phone business. You starting out as a splicers assistant, you know, working for the phone companies, and then eventually retiring as the CEO of Verizon, and now with some distance, right? I guess it's 6 or 8 years since you stepped down. Do you feel like that is still your primary identity? Ivan, Verizon, the phone guy, or.

"Growing chorus on the left and the right to break up the big tech companies, particularly Google and Facebook. People who support this idea say, these companies are too big that they have a monopoly on the way most of us use the Internet. Well, no matter where you stand on this issue, we have a lot of evidence about how antitrust lawsuits have worked in the past. Actually, the phone you use today in the very technology that companies like Facebook and Google deploy has a lot to do with the breakup of a monopoly. It happened in the early 1980s, and that monopoly was AT&T. Up until 1984, AT&T was the phone company for most Americans. But a series of lawsuits by the U.S. government forced the breakup of AT&T. And as a result, a bunch of smaller local phone companies were born. They were known as the baby bells. And that decision by the government would eventually lead to an explosion of innovation in wireless and Internet technology. Companies started to lay down fiber optic cables and build a better wireless infrastructure. All technologies that ironically would enable Google and Facebook to emerge. Verizon, which today is the biggest wireless provider in the U.S., would also emerge from that breakup. And I've been along for the ride from the very beginning. When he retired as Verizon's CEO in 2011, the company's value was hovering at around $75 billion, but Ivan started at the very bottom literally underground splicing telephone cables. After graduating high school in 1964, Ivan had started at the city college of New York, but he says, he really wasn't taking the school that seriously. After the first year, the college basically kicked him out of the full-time program. But told him that he could study in the night program if you wanted to have another shot, so Ivan did that. And it was around this time he started to work too. He was 19 years old, and he needed to earn money to live. I got a job as a building janitor. And my job there was to be the January of the building and run the freight elevator so they can accept all of the deliveries that came into that building, and I did that for about one year. And during that year, I remember my supervisor once said to me, you know, I see that you're studying on your lunch hour and you're trying to get yourself back on track. And he said, con Edison in the telephone company actually help their employees by paying for some elements of college. So I applied to both Khan Ed and New York telephone and I was lucky enough to get a job in New York telephone in the box. It was in June of 66 where I was I had my first day at work at the telephone company and then I got drafted. You got drafted during the Vietnam War. And did you feel a sense of patriotism and did you feel like, okay, you know, this is what I have to do or was it less kind of mythical than that? In my case, my entire family, my grandfather, my uncles, we came from the classic Franklin Roosevelt generation democratic family in New York, and that serving in the army was just not something we would have ever thought not to do. So then I served in the army and I came out of the army in May of 68, so I remember within two weeks I went over to the school to see if I could get back into school. But then I went over to the campus in I was definitely a fish out of water. It was classic New York City just overrun with politics and anti war and all that kind of thing. And here I was, a guy who got out of the army with a crew cut. Yeah. And so I still had a job with the phone company. So I signed up for night school, I then embarked on this dual track of going to school while I was working for the phone company. So I guess the first few years of your time working for New York telephone after you got back from the war, I mean, this is a blue collar job. I mean, you're not wearing a suit and tie and going into an office every day, right? Oh, I don't think I had a suit. You were outdoors. You were working on. Oh yeah, I loved it. I was working on aerial cables and manholes, and we were splicing cables and remember, in those days, the communications business was going through its own growth. If you think about the economy was strong and so therefore, a lot of people were requiring new phones. And so we had plenty of work, plenty of overtime, and you know, what's interesting is the construction gang and my supervisor, my foreman, they saw that I was a young kid that was interested in college and interested in trying to do better and they encouraged me to go to school and they helped me with my scheduling to make sure I could do my work and go to school and when the time came, they encouraged me to apply for what they would call a management position and move from the construction garage and in 1971 about a guy I think that was about it. I moved into a management job, you know, wearing a white shirt and a red tie and going to work and working in the engineering department. This is a time when AT&T was the dominant player in the United States and New York telephone where you worked was a local phone company that was part of AT&T, right? I worked for New York telephone, which was a subsidiary of the broader bell system. But to connect that Dutch, so somewhere in the mid 70s, like 72 or three, I was fortunate enough to apply for a position that transferred me from New York telephone to AT&T. And that exposed me to a whole new set of people, very highly educated, very highly motivated, and I was sort of the token local expert having worked out in the field, but I found myself in a position where I had lots of opportunity to share the knowledge I had about what was going on in the real world, but I didn't have the tools necessary to contribute at an intellectual level at AT&T. And this is where my schooling really drove me to finish college quicker and it then drove me to graduate school and go to graduate school for another 6 or 7 years. At night. I did. It was mostly because I couldn't compete with all the people at AT&T, who had degrees from bucknell and harford, and every place else, by going to school, it gave me the confidence that I was learning enough.

"Actually both Verizon customers in different ways. We're both Fios customers, actually. And Kathleen, maybe you might be cell phone as well. And one of the things that we experienced is we were using the chatbots or using the conversational assistance we've had some weather related outages. So just want to point out cause of any other kind of weather happens. We've had some snowstorms. We've had some crazy things. And I actually, I remember when I first wanted to use Verizon services, rather than calling up the phone. I was just like, I just went into the chat service. And I said, I'd like to get this particular offer. And I think there was a human in the loop. It's actually kind of nice because I think some of it was automated and some of those are human and loop. So it's kind of nice that I didn't really know too much about that. It was some of it was hidden. So that was kind of nice, a little bit of a Turing test there. I don't know if I was talking to a human or a machine. And that worked out really very smoothly. And at the same time, there was also, I think we had this experience of the recent outage where it's like the webs, this is kind of one of those issues where it's like the data needed to be caught up. And I think the website wasn't yet aware of the fact that there was like a big outage. Like it wasn't just like you have an outage because when an individual has an attitude, you want to walk them through some steps to make sure that they're not, you know, the individual is not a bonehead, like the router was off or the cable was unplugged or your computer is off or something, or you're not connected to the Wi-Fi. So it makes sense. You go through all that checklist. But there are actually was a big outage, and I think at that point, it became easier to pick up the phone and call someone and say, hey, there's an outage. So even an organization's like Verizon, which are making fantastic use of data, really ahead of the curve..

"And when I talk about AI in the slider, it will not be a good idea to forget about data in this language. The data in the slide and AI in the situation, they go hand to hand in hand. So one of the questions as you asked, the cultural thing, what we had to change is we have to organize ourselves differently. Earlier, we used to have data engineering organization all over the place within the Verizon. And also data scientists were in different groups of the different parts of the business. What we did is we stood up a new organization which we called a CDA organization. Chief data and analytic office officer organization. And we brought all the data engineers, all the analysts, all the data scientists into that organization to make sure we can follow the same standards and when I say same standards, starting from the data. Do all the way putting AI into the production. So that way we can move faster. Now, somebody can ask, hey, just by changing the process, how can you move faster? And I tell them there are always three things. People process and technology. And what we did, we not only changed the culture, but also we in the slice all three. By standardizing the process by standardizing the technology and bringing the people together so that way we can cultivate the same culture across organization two. Yeah, I mean, that's impressive. Verizon is not a small company. I don't think changing culture is something that happens overnight or necessarily is easy. So that's great that you did that. And you're right. You do want to focus on that people process technology. So since Verizon is not small, I mean, we talked about that. We talk with organizations of all sizes, right? And there's opportunities with when it comes to size, both ways, right? Some small organizations have different opportunities than large ones. So for Verizon, specifically, what are some of the unique opportunities that adopting artificial intelligence across an organization as large as Verizon presents? And then on the flip side, what are some of the challenges? And maybe roadblocks or things that you needed to overcome when doing that as well. So if I talk about opportunities, opportunities are everywhere. You name it. Wherever you go, you will find AI opportunities. Where it all starts is with the problem statement. If you can define your problem statement absolutely in a correct way and you know what you are trying to solve,.

"And guess what? I fell in love with data so much that now I'm here from last four years and I'm basically responsible for AI industry and I have basically taken care of data science, work stream, ML work stream, reporting platforms, innovation, and also the journey of taking our data management platforms on prem all the way to cloud. All right, well, that was a great introduction. So thank you so much for introducing yourself to our audience. And helping set the tone for today's podcast. You know, some of our listeners may not be familiar with AI industrialization, the term and the concept. So what is it? Maybe you can explain that to our listeners very quickly. And then how is Verizon moving from pockets of AI and ML to artificial intelligence and machine learning really being implemented across the organization? Thanks, Kathleen. I'm very passionate about AI into slide and I need to set the context how did we arrive to AI industry before I explain what is AI in this? As I said, in my introduction, four years back when I started working in this area, we started bringing all the datasets into data Lake and in warehouse to do the data analysis. And we started building AI models ML models. And at the same time, what we saw that pretty much every data scientist was using their own process of building the models when it comes to the experimentation. They were using their own processes to do experimentation. Even looking at the stability of model explainability, pretty much everything they were doing manually and they were doing their own way. And at the same time, all data scientists were sitting in different pockets and because they were sitting in different pockets, they were following different standards. And what we realized that if we truly want to scale AI throughout Verizon, what we need to do is we need to initialize the AI. And the reason we thought to indicate the AI, this way, we can bring all the processes.

"AT&T and Verizon announced they would not comply with the request from the FAA and Department of Transportation to postpone deploying new 5G service near airports. The carriers did say they might be willing to pause deployments near certain airports for 6 months on the condition that the FAA and the aviation industry are committed to doing the same without escalating their grievances unfounded as they are in other venues. Airlines argue that 5G signals use frequencies that are close to altitude sensing radar altimeters with the carrier sing, power levels, and the gap in frequencies are adequate to prevent interference. When 2022 rolled around, Microsoft exchange servers were hit with a date check failure, resulting in messages getting stuck in transport cues. Microsoft issued mitigations for the bug, which require either a manual fix or for admins to apply and automated script. Depending on the number of emails in the transport queue, Microsoft warned, it may take some time to send out all backlog emails. With the sudden demand for local chip manufacturing facilities due to the ongoing semiconductor shortage, chip makers could face a growing labor shortage in the niche fields needed to operate these new facilities. The talent management company eightfold AI estimates that in the U.S. alone, 70,000 to 90,000 new workers will be needed by 2025 to meet labor needs at new fabs. If the U.S. aims to be independent of foreign chip supplies, this will require an estimated 300,000 more workers on top of that. Video games in China must be licensed by the national press and publication administration to go on sale in the country, but the agency has not published a list of new approved titles since July 2021.

Crushed in the cross will be one of the tunnels underneath the capitol. That story is about to erupt. And then we have hundreds of people who have been tracked down geolocated thanks to Verizon AT&T accused of misdemeanors like trespass and then put in solitary. Can you talk to us during Victoria on the latest developments, the subpoenas against people like my former colleague Steve Bannon and others? And the approach of mock Meadows because he's taking an interesting tack isn't he with his response in the commission subpoena? Well, Mark Meadows was originally cooperating with his lawyer, but then they began to raise issues of executive privilege and the committee said they wouldn't recognize those. And they said they were going to then Mark suspended his cooperation. And then they said they were going to have a vote and refer mark for criminal contempt prosecution, which the Garland Justice Department will no doubt put into play because they are politically completely politically motivated at the Justice Department.

"Is Verizon and its competitors can move you into a higher price plan where you have unlimited data or other add on services that you want and you're just willing to spend a little bit more Verizon wants you in those in those big plans. So yeah, I don't think they're just rooting for the pixel 6. I think they're rooting for iPhone refreshes every two years. As much as we bemoan, apple and sort of its incremental upgrades with the iPhone. You know who loves it? Verizon. AT&T T mobile. They love it. The verge is reporting that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is planning to formally unveil a new name for his company next Thursday at Facebook's annual AR VR conference. The name change is intended to reflect the company's ambition to be known for more than social media. Tell me what you think. Well, this is there are multiple things I think about this, but and maybe this is just because of where my stupid brain goes, but I feel like this is the most epic trolling opportunity of all time, because for those who do not know Facebook history, this the original name of the company was face smash. Would it not be the most epic trolling opportunity of all time if Facebook went back to that? They won't. They won't, because that's back to the Harvard days, but it would be. Here's the thing, Chris, you know, apparently part of this is that Facebook wants to better reflect its role in enabling the metaverse. And for those who don't know what the metaverse is, it's basically a digital reality. It's like you immerse yourself in a digital reality through maybe the Oculus headset or immersive video games or whatever it is and Facebook wants to own this space. So as if $2 billion spent on Oculus in 2014 now makes Facebook lord commander of all things digital. I'm just not buying this.

"But to your point, they're very strategic about spreading their bets around the old Hollywood adage that nobody knows anything is true when you look at over the past, let's just call it 12 months. Yep. The two biggest hits or certainly two of the biggest hits are squid game and The Queen's Gambit, which nobody, including people at Netflix would have predicted these are going to be huge chance. Murder ball and chess. Murder ball and chess are gonna be the big winners. Let's move on to Verizon because shares are up a bit despite third quarter revenue coming in lower than expected. They raised guidance for the full fiscal year. Is 5G adoption helping to juice their sales numbers? Because they certainly aren't promoting the hell out of 5G in their marketing. Of course they are. I mean, this is what happens every time there is an upgrade in the network. And it took a while. I mean, we shouldn't, without going too far down a tech rat hole, Chris, whenever a company says removing from four G to 5G, we're moving from three G to four G that's a multiyear process, and there is always a lot of tech that's involved in staging that move to actual the next protocol to forgie or to 5G so what's happening, but it's happening slowly. But certainly there are 5G phones that are 5G handsets. There is demand for that. And there was some pretty big numbers on the postpaid. Subscribers here, Chris. I mean, they did. They did awfully well in terms of generating, I believe it was 699,000 postpaid subscribers here. That was well ahead of expectations. And that may be part of what's driving this higher here. So just some real whether or not we're talking about pur 5G I don't know that we are, but I'm not sure that it matters. What we are talking about is faster handsets, new iPhones, people upgrading, getting on the Verizon network and improve Verizon network. And that does drive enthusiasm. And some of these phones really are true 5G phones. So yeah, I do think it is driving it to a degree. And the good news for Verizon is, we're going to keep seeing this because the 5G upgrades will keep coming. Yeah, earlier in the week Google had their event for the pixel 6 phone. And we talked a little bit about this on Motley Fool money over the weekend. The early stuff I've seen in terms of reviews and from the consumer tech media was pretty positive. And I think if you're a business like Verizon, you're rooting for that. Google has considering they've been at this for I think 6 years. Their market share for the pixel is tiny. So if you're a Verizon, you have to be rooting for them. To increase that market share, give people more options and get more people subscribing for Verizon services. There's no doubt. I mean, you want a wider pool. There is no doubt about this. You want a greater penetration of very high performance handsets. And the reason why is because you can charge you're more likely with a very high performance handset where you really want to do more with that phone. You may upgrade to a higher price plan. And one of the areas where Verizon was a little bit pressured here is on average revenue per user. It's down slightly, but it's still solid. It's like 43 O 8, I think was the number that's down just a little bit. And the reason for the pressure on this is subsidies and things like that because you are talking about a $1000 handsets, but still the bigger and better those handsets get the more likely it.

That stands in the way of their agenda and why for facebook's own financial gain because they're antitrust agenda must remain so the whistle blower has now come out and just endorsed more censorship for the good of children while also preserving antitrust. So how do you make such a massive algorithm ick chain across the entire site to censor more maybe install a new algorithm and reboot the entire system for five or six hours and yet the following day as the whistle blower goes in front of congress. They reset the entire thing now. Maybe it's just kind of a system boot. They don't know what they're doing but we posted something on instagram.

"Great connectivity. With lots and lots of capacity so you know during the super bowl 's go into these facilities these arenas these stadiums and build out massive distributed antenna systems and deploy these networks on another thing that we're doing is we're coupling that network with something called met mobile edge compute or multi access edge compute. So it's basically bringing the ability to have the cloud compute applications closer to the end users so now we can have a fan wearing an augmented reality set of glasses watching the football game. And you know just imagine as the quarterback drops back and he's looking down field. You might see on your screen on overlay. You're watching it real time through the glasses but the overlay might come up of a red zone or area where he's completed more passes than the other area you know and then you actually see him. Deliver the pass to a certain area so those kinds of things are really neat. I think it was not this past super bowl super bowl before. Don't quote me on the one hundred percents here. It was that one. But i'm pretty sure it was where we deployed meg in onside elta at a stadium and we had wide receivers with not during the game. Of course they had on virtual reality glasses and they were able to use the camera on the glasses to see you know just basically to be able to see through the camera. They are actually seeing an augmented reality. You know picture and they were able to throw and catch a pass real time. So what enables that is quick compute or low latency so if you have applications where you need really low latency verizon's also bring into the mix this of putting compute out there with the network so some of those types of experiences that were starting to deploy and develop in. You'll start to see very very soon in places like nfl football games. You can just imagine the benefits of doing something similar to that in the plant for a real time.

Don't really need cellular connectivity. So again you know if we can monetize spectrum about working with an upstream company to deploy a private network for them in wide open spaces. Where all about so. There's more and more challenges if you get into urban environment. There's more and more challenges as we need. Our spectrum are macro networks but we've got solutions in. Were driving hard to be able to deploy wanna call outside the fence. Private sailor. Networks is well. We're not quite as far along on that. There's a lot of work that's been done. There's a lot of desire and there's a lot of need for outside the fans private sailor in. We are working with many options. Right now so i would say. By the time we started talking to apply. Today they've got that desire talk to one actually two weeks ago that has the desire for permian basin. We're already partnered with that company. They're very large global company. Were already partnered with them for building. Our macro network out there are public network. Though we're also starting conversations with him to out of private network. Those a lot of spices. Well okay. we'll end so speaking of new innovations coming online and that sort of thing and and this may be a little bit off topic but thanks kind of fun you and our talking off air. Verizon's big i don't know if there are sponsor or what they are of the nfl but they provide a lot of communication systems in that arena.

"Big transition that we've been dealing with your in terms of ai. Machine learning is really transitioning from computational systems in decision making to cognitive right decision making out in insights so Baritone fact became a open platform. Call on an operating system for os. That is really good at ingesting. All different types of data then being able to use our suite of over four hundred fifty different cognitive engines and models to to be able to analyze interrogate and ultimately you know empower our business customers with you know the tools applications in unstructured data so they can advance their business. Why do you have so many machine learning models because every job it potentially warrants a different bespoke recipe of cognition. So if i say for example Where presented with australian english. Right you absolutely potentially want to use a different train model as to glowing. Wash 'em in saint louis true for like for example variances in near field or barfield audio right throwing one transcription engine Tire corpus of audio You're gonna get you will get varying results in. Our job is to be able to analyze the data sets in ben in effect programmatic find in orchestrate. The right hung recipe to get the best results and to be clear. I'll give you some examples. The best results is not always accuracy. Right if you're dealing with so much tonnage of data some projects that we work on. You know they're okay with eighty percent accuracy. Because it's it's there's so much volume. They have to meet a price point right. They can't wait ten dollars or fifteen dollars an hour of content process it so and that's in that thankfully that decision being kind of model agnostic in being able to normalize.

I didn't know that you've been a listener before. I never assume that people have even heard of us now. I have you know i. It's anything that says voice in a i. I think it needs to be on the top of my research less. Oh no i'm. I'm thankful for you and another journalist really diving into this exciting category great. I think it's long overdue. That i have you on it and i think about the when i was first introduced verizon's several years ago. I thought of you sort of in the ad tech space Doing the quality assurance At performance Maybe doing some of the asset management pieces for people could go into their media their unstructured data media assets. Find the little bits that they really needed. Exploited them in new ways and so Over the last couple years you've totally transformed like i'm thinking back shortly after you were founded fourteen fifteen sixteen to seeing you guys early on but it's like an entirely different business now it has it's been somewhat similar to our previous companies where you know when you get to a point scale in one area you know at times an opportunity on flexible Presents itself right and you can either go after the bigger idea or you were talking about a pre show or hunker down and just try to own the small right that you're going after Dan this business thankfully Kind of organically presented a much bigger more dynamic opportunities for us and and obviously we've seen are kind of tripled down on that in river starting to reap the rewards for that

"verizon" Discussed on Anything But Idle

"That is usually sent through sms or a massive. It's just text. Then it's gonna go by sms of its. If it's going to be photo or video it's going to be sent over the ms protocol. Well google in the right perspective Decided that they wanted to bring all of the messaging platforms together under a more secure and a clear protocol and that was our see us. They've been working over the last few years to make that happen. There was another initiative of the c. C. m. i and I think april verizon went ahead and kind of just abandoned that effort trying to get together all of the various Communications carriers in that other platform and so now. Eighteen t t mobile and verizon in the united states have all determined that they will support the standard on android An in twenty twenty two. This means that you get end to end encrypted messaging you get chat based features like being able to emoji a message being able to type and see that the person is typing some other lightweight Features like that in the system. so i just. I'm really really excited to see us have secure communications. I mean that's the biggest part for me. Is that these communications between individuals. So that we don't have to worry about The the messages being sniffed at by Governments or otherwise. and so. that's the part that really speaks to me especially folks overseas and of course as we said before this is being supported by. Us telecom carries the three majors so we need obviously international telcos to now support the standard as well but this is the big move in the right direction except for the one big missing party all of this and do you wanna know who that is. That's of course apple So you know the way in which is see it and you can give some some thoughts here gustav because you are in the apple ecosystem. Apple has patch worked together. As i understand it apple messages. So what is i. Message is basically multiple different purchases and acquisitions and development over time and is a big holy mess and so they decided to put up this firewall so they have this firewall that they implemented to kind of shield. I messages from the various pieces of the puzzle. That are are problematic and so they have the choice of continuing the firewall or rewriting apple messages from the ground up and from my perspective. This would be a really great time to make that choice to rewrite apple messages from the ground up and support our cs and then make everybody a part of their blue bubbles so You know like where. Where do you come down on this agusto in terms of do you think apple will make make a choice in that direction. Not too too much opinion into it but What what are your..

"For years. Now we've been promised blazing fast speeds as next generation five g networks are rolled out the major carriers verizon. At and t. Mobile have all made five g a central part of their marketing campaigns. And they've pitched it as the foundation for a new era of technological innovation but in the us the rollout of those networks isn't living up to the hype. So what gives our puerto council has been looking into this and he joins me now. Hey jared thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me so just to put some numbers and figures to this picture. What is the state of five zero out in the us. We're the major carriers stand in comparison to the rest of the world. So the three major carriers verizon eighteen t and t mobile here in the us They all say they have nationwide five g coverage which means that you know the five g networks cover roughly two hundred million or so people while that is true. The five g that that that people it is really not materially different from the four g that they've they already have one number here here in the us. The average five g speed is about sixty seven megabits per second and south korea. It's three hundred sixty six megabits per second so pretty much six times that the speeds aren't you know anything to to shout home about yet. But they are improving and the carriers are building out their networks. So folks in the industry expects some of the building of equipment in towers and such to really kick up and twenty twenty two.

Should You Outsource Customer Support?

"Support and customer. Service is really the backbone of your company. It's how your customers will interact with your business whether they're asking for some support on how to use your product or service a billion corey or they're looking to upgrade. They're gonna most likely contact somebody on your support team to get that done so in a lot of ways. They're the gatekeepers. They're the front line soldiers of your team. Many people will go to a ppo company in just hire that service. they'll say. hey. I need customer support. I x amount of emails every day. Can you get somebody to take care of my support email or support chat or whatever it is or phone calls and based on your volume this company will like hey problem and they have a team of customer support agents that will take care of your support and your customers now. How does this work well. Most of these companies won't have a dedicated person. You probably can request but a lot of times the agents working on your business and with your customers will also help other businesses with their customers and from the customer's point of view. They're pretty much just talking to somebody. That represents your business. They don't know that. You're outsourcing it now very large companies do this like telecom companies like. At and t and verizon large companies like apple and microsoft and the reason why they do this is that they just can't hire that fast they can't find the talent because they need so many people when the iphone launches they literally thousands of queries a minute thousands of questions in their support bank in their support a portal so they really need as many people. They can't hire so many people at one shot so they go to a company like this. Now if you're a small company is there any advantage to this well a lot of times. It's cost effective especially on volumes of severe example. They say we will take care of all your customer support and they give you a flat fee now. of course you're still gonna need provide some training materials and Information about your product or service in the rules For your product and refunds. And all that kind of stuff. So that support agent knows how to answer those questions but at the end of the day they work for the company that you are paying not you directly
