"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.

Apple and AT&T and Verizon and T mobile and all those folks are doing trade ins right now to upgrade to the new iPhone 13. Only problem they don't want mine anymore. It's so old. It's about 6 years old now. I guess or something like that. I was looking back and seeing ever talked about this before. And the last time I talked about, upgrading was when I upgraded from an iPhone four to my iPhone 7. I'll be honest with you, I can't keep track of the upgrades anymore. My phone still works. Everything's still fine, but I guess the camera's not good enough. And the speed of the iPhone isn't good enough. And well, I don't know what the problem is. It's still working for me, and I like the size of the phone and I don't want to upgrade. I realize I'm going to have to. I'm still rocking the iPhone 7 and I love it. I don't want to upgrade yet.

Facebook Mysteriously Went Down After Whistleblower Went Public... Coincidence?

"Facebook was down for yesterday. Y well they said that it was an internal system error but was it to try and reset the company and reset their coding. One man jason wrote on facebook of all places he said. What sort of content is facebook now being challenged to regulate more hate speech. Divisive political content conspiracies. Of course anything. 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. Yesterday that had come to the worst engagement we have ever seen any post ever are. We now been blacklist. I don't know. I'm just saying it was so bad connor right. It was unbelievable. I looked at it this morning and it was a good post and it was just completely obliterated now. Maybe it's just some sort of functional error. Whatever and it's very strange to the facebook configuration effected telegram. At and t. And verizon and facebook has now said that the major outage was due to configuration changes so they were reconfiguring things yesterday. to what extent are they harmonizing.

"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.

"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..

"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

New Verizon promotion offers discounts when swapping a broken phone for a 5G one

"Up to now? Victoria? Well, they have a new deal that suspiciously launches today, but they they are insisting that this is not related to April. Fool's, So it does sound a little too good to be true, especially if you have a useless broken phone that doesn't work anymore. Because Verizon's insisting that starting today customers can trade in an old cracked or water, damaged phone and get up to $1000 off a new five g phone like either the iPhone 12 or the Samsung Galaxy s 21. Now the promo does not extend to phones that have battery damaged because their safety concerns there with that. But other than that, if you have a phone that's just sitting around an old and broken there clearly telling you that if you especially if you are switching providers, and you go to Verizon from a different provider that they're going to give you a lot of money and credit for those broken phones so you can find out the value of your phone on Verizon's Web site. Or in any of the retail stores. But if you do plan to visit in person they you have to make an appointment because of covert, so eligibility requires upgrading or adding a new line or reporting a number, you know, bringing a number from a different different provider. So a few new they have a new lines and a new phone for a number of pardons or current customers. Porting the line from a different network. You got a $300 Verizon gift card for an iPhone trade in or a $200 gift card for an android phone. So if you're upgrading your phone, and you're already a customer, Verizon, you can still bring them a broken phone to trade in. They'll give you up to $440 in savings, and there's no limit to what I do for a current Is it for current customers are new customers. It's for both. You get more money if you're a new customer, but you will get some savings. If you are a current Verizon customer, and you have a broken phone or an old phone that doesn't work. So if you are, there's no limit to how many phones per account you can trade in, which is also kind of big and that's that's a big part of this deal, and it's limited

What have we got our internet from outer space. Adam clark estes deputy editor at recode wrote about this and is here to talk about it. Hey adam so surprising thing in your story that a lot of people probably don't already is that a lot of listeners. Already get through internet via satellite. That's how we get wi fi on planes for instance. So why hasn't this taken off more. Broadly satellite internet has historically been just a little bit subpar. When you compare it to terrestrial wi fi you're down on planet earth. We have fiber optic cables which basically have limited bandwidth and to do satellite internet. You're basically beaming connection from the address. Drill network up to a satellite and back down and technology just hasn't been good enough To to get bandwidth to enough people so that it compares to terrestrial broadband internet you get from verizon or time warner but that's starting to change with a new satellite technology and what are called constellations of satellites and has the pandemic at all sort of raised the stakes for this work and made it more. Urgent less-urgent tell me about that. Dependent is absolutely accelerated development and especially investment in this technology just after the pandemic starting to became incredibly clear. That a lot of people don't have internet access and they're being left behind young students who are able to get online for classes people who aren't able to to to work remotely so once. It became so clear that solving this problem of internet access was urgent a lot. More investment went into xilai broadband initiatives The number of launches went up quite a bit.

"We're gonna be talking about google contact center. And i'm not just saying this because you're here on an is honest truth. I've been hoping one in this composition for a long time because our history. If you go back far enough is rooted in alexa. Google assistant and the voices and spirits. And we've been working in this all contact center environment and customer services for a while and then we see. Google released this kind of suite of tools. The seems to have in some parts from history with with google assistant and all this kind of stuff in very similar technologies. and we've been been exploring it for awhile and excited to see where it goes and what you're up to so thank you much for joining us citing citing. Yeah there's a lot of history there with assistant and yeah we can talk about. It's it's an interesting story but it. What's what's interesting is that it's really exhilarating in the last two years. It's been pretty pretty impressive. What we've been able to deliver and really happy to release a led technology now until it's all coming together and we're seeing great results so happy to cheryl that nice. What's what's what's who is it. That says underwent a plan comes together is bigger is gonna plan comes together nicely. Well well on any join those. So you the head of compositional nine contact center at google cloud jonah. Tell the people tune in a little bit about what the rule is what you do on google cloud and how that relates to i own the product the product suite basically. So whatever touches conversational. I for google cloud which is now set of a set of product so some underlying technologies like the speech to text. Api or text to speech api. Some of the amelia technologies that we have but on top of that really. What's interesting. is the various products. No dalek show. For cell surrey's channel bots voice and chat the agent assists to help human agent do their job better and getting sites. And what's going on in real time as they were talking to customers and the latest one is insights which is coming verviers soon which is about understanding all your contact center and everything that's happening they are so it's kind of a product suite under the umbrella. Ci and yes. I own that. I have a team of product. Managers that Do a job at delivering on those products from helping drive a change in the market with this nice so i was just trying to put the lincoln in lincoln. So you mentioned the Some of it has a history with google assistant. Let's unpack that a little bit. So where i come from. And what relationship. If any have with google assistant technologies it started about four years ago. I think some somewhere around that where we did assistant actually did an acquisition of a company. Api and the. I was A tool to help people build better. Google assistant interactions turned out. That in google cod. We were really interested with this technology and the cloud. Google customers actually started using piano the i to build bots for arna a prize and it became dialogue so and so we started planning a little bit working toward more entreprise use cases with alec flow as as assistant was working on their own on their own path and were sharing a lot of the nfl. You underlying the technology but as time passed we so much more traction in the enterprise and had to separate ourselves a little bit in terms of how you manage the the system itself and elliot's fairly common but the system you know the the designer the interaction the web hoax infrastructure the security level privacy that we could provide with allah flu can a diverse and about i would say about two years ago. We started embarking on a new journey toward larger on it so we had their early over. I think we have about one point. Five million developers now in dallas so signed up but we saw that big move award. Large large companies like verizon and likes that wanted to have a lot more flexibility and being able to handle more complex. Use cases with their varietal agents Migrated toward what we just launch in. General is but at the same time we expanded toward agent assists and insights we added to the portfolio so the history starts at a piano. The i four years ago. But i think they're somewhat of a split about two years ago to address the large enterprise cases those use cases and so for those who you mentioned. It's this this dialogue floor the cx was created. There is agent assist olympics and insights. Those are the those are the the full men compo- insects out yet but inside his common. That's right isn't it. Yeah so. It's a early preview right now. It's coming on in in In preview the states kind of bit is a new term. Like we don't have alpha beta anymore. We have previews and j preview previews coming out. I think in the next month and now it takes care is incites is no analysis product per se. It is it is inside. So floyd assists on sites had the three main main products. And i'm accents. Okay then so. Donald flows has been used a lot for goodness actions as well as chump dot says wella's contact center etc for those up in the day a more than likely have experienced dialogue floor in some shape or form. So what is it. The drove the need for dialogue floor. Cx whetted cx come from. Sussex is more graphical. It's it's slightly different to. Es what's the history. Yeah that's actually very important. So essentially asks is basically dial for the daleks with everybody knows that the prior version she will that was meant to build simpler interactions. So one or two turns. Maybe three turns if you if you really need to go a little deeper but some people have called it like slot failing type of bots little bit of that no s something getting tencent and entities and do something where the work or cloud function fairly simple. But when you talk about larger apprise they need to handle much more complex use cases longer. You know five. Ten twelve fifteen turns in conversation or you know things that lasts for two or three minutes on the voice side and being able to handle that without floor essential was very difficult. Because linking intense between them. The nfc between intense was a little difficult to do and the visual builder was a big improvement where you can see a complete flow manage the transition in dragon drop. Ui all without code was really important to a lot of customers but it really doesn't stop there Dallas came from a need for better predictability in spending for example so the pricing model is different. Secession based rather than a turn or fifteen second incriminate. It has a skill ability Capabilities that are much higher so delicacy. Excellent handled forty thousand intent in a single implementation issue. Compare that doug. Flu central two thousand ten. You can have mega agent on it. Which allows you to go to twenty but cx with forty thousand and ten and we have customers that are in the many many thousands fifteen seventeen thousand intents so it does happen that you need this kind of skill. It also has a lot more features toward ivr's when you used alpha essentials. It's unlikely you're going to replace your vr and hence your vr with. It's more about knowing if you think about assistant. Its interaction with smart device.

"With me to help interview Ronin is my colleague you'll have Blumenthal Roger. . Ronin thanks for joining US pleasure so You've been working for a while now it's the industry has been working on for a while it's been live for almost two years at this point. . But how big of a deal is it that apple is finally getting into the five day game. . So Roy, , if I may just take people back is you know great debt technologies when they arrive needs to be deployed within an ecosystem and we started like three plus years ago and we have the technology for more. . We brought best in class partners together and said, , look within this five G. is going to be huge we want to accelerate. . The development of the standards, , the development of the of the equipment. . So we kind of put our money where out was early on, , and since then we've been in the vanguard and really the announcements today are a combination of that two to three year cycle where we've worked with chipset manufacturers, , we've worked with network equipment vendors and we've worked with all of the premium device manufacturers in the world, , and we brought together a very clear understanding the potential of both five G. and particularly five G. A. millimeter waves, , and that has resulted in this year long now after the announcements from Apple Twenty five, , five G. devices coming to. . The US, , all of which you're supporting at millimeter wave and really reflecting I believe an accelerated adoption curve that can only get faster. . Now that apple in Iowa have joined the party now you spent a year and a half touting the insane speeds that you get with that millimeter way side p speeds but realistically for Law Folks Buying, , an iphone twelve of their likely will be accessing the Logan five through the nationwide <unk> work announced today. . I'm just curious how you are either educating or bracing consumers. . On, , what could be a disappointing first impression of five G. because it's not quite those millimeter way speeds low band is at this point, , you know an incremental upgrade over our faster four g networks. . So I'd break it into two parts, , the devices that are coming to market today in the recent past from other device manufacturers have chipsets in them, , which are optimized to use the existing technologies for Jim Five G. Even better to deliver better experiences better battery life better capabilities on the devices. . So there's An proposition for any. . Who is considering upgrading? ? The second thing is in today was a perfect demonstration of it. . The pace of software innovation around networks is faster than it's ever been. . We announced today that because of the availability of ATC on the down Lincoln to see on the up link with Camera Gatien that we've essentially doubled the spades in millimeter wave, , but it's not about speed. . Speed in our business is a proxy for capacity and capability, , and so think about it is is it that somebody needs four gigs or is it that a thousand people in a stadium or all streaming four? ? K At exactly the same time? ? That's the question that you have to answer, , and so the opportunity for customers to enjoy both fabulous ultra why bound experiences but also because of our commitment to ultra wideband in those densely populated areas in the high traffic areas, , actually the flow to the ultra wideband network is also freeing up the very best of the best in class for Jail T. network we have a now five gene nationwide covering over two hundred million. . Of the US population so it is a win win it gets better for everybody. . Okay. . So talking about that you know win win and getting people onto five G. Phones, , that's obviously a big opportunity for getting people to switch and get onto the new networks with your approach with dss, , is there an added incentive for you guys to get people to upgrade so that you can restart reallocating spectrum from four G. L. T. to five G. when in fact, , it's almost the the country while we're absolutely excited about telling the five story to our customers. . The use of DSS means that we don't have to artificially partition between one part of our spectral bands and another to create individual lanes for individual technologies we allow seamless access across the network. . Occasioned by the management of that network in a way that says if there's more need for four G. than we have it, , if there's more need for five G. Than we have, , that's a distinct alternative to somebody saying I have a dedicated line for five G. and if it's empty, , it stays there unused. . So we it's highly efficient in the way we use it, , and therefore we think gives the best experienced about I wasn't willing to compromise my for gop experience of which might customers came for. . In in a rush to the <unk> experience, , what I've committed to is building the best four g LTE network and then on top of the best five G. Nationwide and the new five jailed for wideband. . Network and that's part of Verizon's consistent commitment to delivering quality experience choice. That's . our value proposition

"Group Verizon the list goes on and on and on of companies it with data breaches no aspect of life is spared and the most coveted companies or agencies to a hacker are the ones with the most vulnerable data and who they affect well us even technologists and cyber experts on exam like Alex puzzled the CEO of Oklahoma City based cyber firm took an axe he found out someone open up a cell phone account well he was trying to refinance is home but I've been going through trying to right the ship with with wide your Verizon wireless in order for them to say you know what you're right this is fraudulent so I can go back to the mortgage company and guess what rates change during that time frame so there's a real financial damage your puzzles as in his opinion breaches keep happening because securities being thought of kind of in the wrong way there is a misguided sense of what needs to be focused on from a security standpoint what I mean by that is you have organizations focused traditionally on the perimeter of their network with the should be focused on is what the hackers are trying to get to and that's the data Jonathan Divo is the head of data protection solutions at software developer come for taking there are a lot of security gaps that are very difficult and challenging for a typical or basically any organization to close another challenge is that the cyber security professionals that are on the other side right the red team if you will the hackers they're really good at exploiting these these gaps or vulnerabilities naturally the next question is how do businesses and agencies. organizations secure all of our data let's look at to recent data breaches Equifax and Capital One the Equifax breach impacted one hundred forty seven million people names dates of birth social security numbers addresses email addresses credit card numbers were exposed with Capital One the data of more than one hundred million people was exposed in Equifax's case some of the information was stored in plain text not encrypted in capital one's case the data was encrypted they say and some more sensitive data was even tokenized but capital once said the unauthorized access to the data also allowed the D. critic of the data they said none of the tokenized it was breached so let's start with encryption what is it develop explains I have a set of data and I wanna scramble it the encryption process says take take this one key and you scramble the data and only that key can access that data well wait a minute what about if anybody else wants to review and and look at the original data okay then I'll create all of these decryption keys and give them to every interested party or authorized party in order to be able to decrypt the data so there are basically two sets of keys one that created the actual corruption and then one that's public the public side of it that decrypts it in and that's normal in an encryption and decryption process right what's not right is to store the keys in the same place it's like having a key to your front door in a rock in front of your house and everybody knows it you don't put that you're not I mean you don't put the key in obvious place where Asif is gonna say let me check there first but a lot of companies also tokenized data it is a step beyond encryption the original data uses this cryptography and it comes up with the tokenized value or a Serra get value in tokenization actually read. places the social security number or even a credit card number of whatever it is with a fake value S. Sierra get value and then sat value is what's stored in the database with organization they got hold of the to focus tokenized numbers but it doesn't mean anything right they could try to use that stolen credit card number or even try to enter that social security number and all of a sudden it would say oh that's not valid then we wait a minute looks just like the original version maintains the original format of the data but it's not the same is the obvious thing here that they should all not just be encrypting but token Ising all of our data. yes. we we think so but here here's the challenge here's the challenge is they think what they're doing is good enough because encryption does work it's proven it works however it has gaps and the gaps are all over the place now especially with the introduction of cloud so what's a consumer to do keep a lot more information to ourselves we're doing tricky things as consumers right like I'm not telling the complete truth on both plate to say it but sometimes like I remember we're talking to somebody about when you go to Starbucks and they ask for your name well I use a form of tokenization my name's not Johnathan Divo when I go to Starbucks it's Tom Brady or something right. so when they call my my name Tom Brady your coffee and I think consumers are starting to do this right I hate to say we might put in the wrong phone number I don't want my phone number to be called anyway right so we change one or two digits consumers shouldn't have to hack the data that we're putting into businesses Alex puzzled of took an X. agrees he says minimize what is out there about you but here's the thing the the unfortunate reality in kind of the doom and gloom picture of the day is your date is already been breached I'm sorry right and that's that's me saying that every American your date is already been breached yes it may have been your credit card hopefully it's only your credit card the unfortunate piece of this is that if your consumer the tab at their social security number breached but I can go out and I can sign up for ten different credit cards and I get all ten of those not current ten transactions instead of just one or I can. in a bank account that I can proudly wire money to then walked into the bank in your grad that money walk out pencil says he's not sure when Americans will take data breaches and privacy in general more seriously we're sharing information and whatever people are asking for we feel like oh my gosh I don't you know I want to be as accommodating as possible if you look at some of these organizations are collecting over a hundred different data points on who we are what we're doing how we're doing it and unfortunately that at this point it's not illegal within the United States are you go over to the E. U. the wildly different story right they have G. P. R. for example that protects the consumer they have the right to be forgotten so I can call any of these organizations and say number one how did you get my data what information do you have on me are they did a subject and you need to delete all that and I want an attestation that you have actually purchased my data for your environment G. P. R. or general data protection regulation applies to all businesses within the European Union it took effect in may of twenty eighteen the whole reason why Europe is is concerned with privacy and identity if they are the Holocaust that's where all that the foundation of all that's how the Germans were able to find the Jewish people so you look at what they're trying to prevent as you're trying to make sure that something like that never ever ever happen again we've never had an experience like that in the United States so here we are is.

"Mom. Okay. Thank you for joining us. Take care. Susannah Anaheim hills. California's next isos in highly yo-, thank you for taking. My pleasure. Do you for years in my tech guy at at school just says, I'm so much smarter. Because I of the things I've learned from. Thank you very much. You don't have to tell him. You heard it here. It's okay. Just a wizard. I just I know learned I'm smart. So what can I what can I do for you? Well, I'm going camping for five days in the euros of Russia. Wow. And we will be out in the middle of nowhere for about five days. Holy cow. How did you come up with that? That sounds so cool. Oh, great. Great birds. Great wildlife. Great scenery just sort of the chance kind of opened up. And it's like that's nice always wanted to go. Nice. Yeah. Well, good. I hope I hope you don't see any Cossacks out there. But have fun. That's going to be. Yes. Yes. Well, the reason that I would like your input is I have a galaxy S nine and since we will be out of civilization for five as I not sure about being able to charge the phone to keep it charge. I wanted to make sure that we maintain any privacy. I only wanna use my phone really when we're in the cities, I will be in your catcher and Berg and in Moscow may not be able to use it in the mountains. I don't know if they'll have coverage out there. So that might just be you In know, the otherwise, way. I know I won't be able to use it when we're out in the middle of nowhere. But in the city, I just wanna be able to send a text home. That said I'm here. We're back who's your carrier who's who's your cell phone carrier Verizon. Okay. So Verizon does for a long time. They were the most expensive phone to travel with effect for a longtime. They'd even make phones you could travel with you'd have to go to Verizon say, I need an international phone because they are CDMA carrier. But now that they've moved their entire system over to LT. You should be able to use a Reisen phone anywhere. You go in the world using LT. As long as your phone supports LT. Probably has a sim chip in it. What's your should? I check with Verizon, and let them know that. I'm I'm going wouldn't hurt. And then what they have the wave arising does the, you know, it used to be it was just really expensive. I think you'd have to buy two hundred fifty megabytes for hundred bucks or something like that. But now they do unlimited day pass. Yeah. And that's like ten bucks a day. And it's very Ford -able, and the nice thing for you is you could just buy it on the days, you're in the city. Okay. And you could buy it on the phone at while. You're there you say yet turn on they'll send you send you get to Russia. They'll say, oh, welcome to Russia, by the way, you know, you can buy a day pass save that text because they'll be a link and you click the Lincoln you'll by the day pass. It wouldn't be a bad idea to to just call and confirm that that and most importantly confirmed that the phone you have will work is at an iphone Android s night. Yeah. You shouldn't have any trouble with the S nine is is very compatible. But also go to their, you know, getting getting started traveling outside the US, and they talk about the international plans and all that stuff. You could you could even you could even get the day passes a head of time. If if you want, okay. Okay question is since we will be probably not just out of cellphone range. But I'm not sure what the charging of opportunities are going to be out. Now, even sure if the city you'll be able to plug it in. But if you're out in the in the mountains. Yeah, solar is your there's two things you can do solar savvy the obvious one and my favorite company for this goals, zero dot com. They make camping solar panels fold up, and you can take with you..

"Of course, the gbs and stuff like that. And then. And older military chairman, and he was like saluting. Good stuff. Yeah. I I like I also liked. I think Verizon, I know Verizon was was talking about first responders. I thought that was excellent. I didn't I didn't see one that maybe laugh out loud. And I'm used to laughing out loud saying, what was your favorite commercially? Remember? Yeah, I think it's gotta be either the first responders or the Audi wine because that one did make me laugh and carried you said that to the. I was dreaming. I just thought it was surprising. I wasn't expecting that car. Listen. Think of me as a as a motor head. Doc, I have to be guzzling gas. Look, I I don't mind that my car guzzles gas. I can afford to put more gas in it. But I'm down to having electric car that looks and sounds goal. Absolutely. Any car? I'd like to have that Audi. And I think we've got to wait till twenty twenty five hundred even come out. Don't I something like that? Oh, I don't know. I think coming in twenty two thousand four hundred twenty five cents. What's up all agree with you that? Yeah. That's what they said. I didn't you find it a little odd that they had more than a couple of. Commercials regarding artificial intelligence. We were at one point San Mateo said if somebody said it in the in the living room. What's up with all the robots that rose, creepy, so creepy what a horrible. What was that.

"Welcome to text the nation. Joining us Andy Beckmann, director of this at Garmon, thanks for joining us again, Andy thanks for having me, Fred. Well, you've got a new watch coming out. That's a little different from anything. You've had before. It's the garment vivo active. Three music connected by Verizon. We'll give us the over of what the what this thing can do. Yeah. We're super excited. We had just an awesome launch and announcement at CS this year. And yes with our first connected device. So basically when we say connected means it's got a it's got its own data plan. And we partnered with Verizon in regards to this. So so not only do you have just they all the amazing often features that you get with Iraq. It's three music. But now now you can also add in an connected portion of that. So and really the connected portion of that will allow you to do three or four just really special things. First one being. You can leave your phone at home. So many of our wearables today, you what you can do base because you think a live tracking so tread. I can I can go for a run. And if I have my phone with me, I can Email you, and then you can actually follow me while I'm out running. So it's really great convenience beach feature for for loved ones and family and friends to be able to follow me as that, you know, whether I'm out racing or training. And then the other thing that so basically, you can leave your phone at home now. And so have that live tracking feature a couple of other things that we introduced with the back of three music LT version is the ability to do this thing called incident detection, and assistant we've had it system or a incident detection on some edge devices before our by computers were basically, if you're you're outrunning writing, and you suddenly stop and say, you crash hor trip or whatever. Will automatically send a an incident detection message to your your emergency context, basically up to three -mergency context. So then they know that hey, something something bad happen. And basically they will receive a static location where you're at right now as well. The live track message that that they can follow you. So so that's on incident detection, and then the other cool thing that we that we launched with with this products, what's called, assistance, and assistance. Basically if you are out running or writing or wherever your internet activity, you can actually hold on the power button for roughly about five seconds. And you can send a a kind of a, hey, I don't feel comfortable message to your mercy context, and then you will receive a or your friends and family will receive a.
