Ep2: Chatting It Up With Drought's Hannah Black & Megan Petersen
"So we come back from multiple callbacks, 'cause we were like, there's no way. Things don't work out like this for us. But it just did. And so casting was really, really fun. And everyone ended up just being local to Wellington. Because like you guys are saying there's so much talent outside of Atlanta. And LA and New York. There's so much talent in those places for sure. But the best roles at least for our film were right here. So. Yeah, exactly. And sometimes that works even better because again, like you're saying you got to have sort of a family on set because if you don't have that relationship that you're having fun, you know, because I think it should be about having fun being professional, but if you're not having fun, I mean, then it's not, you know, the production value is not there either. Long amounts of hours with each other. And very hot conditions. So we'll talk about weather, right? So when we were following it, I thought you would talk about hot conditions. There's always something that happens on the set. There's always a setback there's always something, so maybe you can, you know, most people talk about, you know, oh yeah, we had this, we had that, but you girls had something bigger, maybe you can tell us about that. Yes, because what's so funny, I'll tell you is that we had all the typical things like our grip truck got stuck in the sand, our ice cream truck broke down. And we rarely ever talk about those challenges because they are all, you know, I guess overshadowed by the fact that this film is about no rain and on day 12 of production we had to stop everything because a hurricane for hurricane that category four hurricane. It was headed towards Wilmington. And not moving. And he was coming right towards our city. So we had to stop on day 12 with an 18 day shoot and everyone evacuated to places like Charlotte or Atlanta. And we were stuck outside of our town for two weeks. I didn't know what we were going to come to when we came back. Because when Lincoln essentially became an island, it flooded everywhere. We weren't sure if our locations were going to be okay. And not even just for our films, but because those people who came our family do, and we didn't want their businesses to damage. There was a lot and I was also going out of the country during that time. So amazing Hannah, somehow put the Tetris of our crew to schedule back together and everyone was able to come back two months later to film. But then it was 44°. Okay. So one question about that, I mean, so when you have something like that, I said back. It's very hard on your motivation. It's very hard because now you're like, what am I going to do? And it takes a toll, especially if you're an artist, you're trying to create something that's meaningful, and now you have a big setback. How do you bounce back from that emotionally? You know, just say, you know, I just keep doing it. Keep doing it. Besides that you have the responsibility of finishing, but just more in the sense of like a personal, you know, no. The question. Hold on, but you think that's okay. Like, how did we do that? I think part of it is just we have invested so much already. And I think we could say just ourselves invested, but then when we look at our crew and our cast and all the people that contributed to this crowdfunding campaign and shared our film like when we are doing our campaign, it's like it didn't feel like it was our movie and felt like it was our communities movie. And so it had to, we had to finish it. We had to keep on going, even though we were tired, because not only us but so many people aboard their heart and soul into making this happen. And it just, it just wasn't really an option to be like, well, you know, we tried our best. And we had a lot, I mean, a hurricane was big, but we also hit some equally challenging things during that production after production before production. Just a lot of lifestyle, hard stuff in between. And so it's kind of like, I don't know. We just kind of had, I think also 'cause we're a partnership. So when one person is tired, the other person can lift them up and vice versa. Megan, what do you think? Yeah, the thing I was thinking of is a lot of times those setbacks I think we used as motivation to be like, this will not stop us. And it almost made us get more fire. Every once in a while it gets to you. And I think that that's when it's okay to call up your friend or like I got to just call it Hannah. And sometimes we're like, I can't do it today. Like today I take a break from the movie. Because maybe these are a can be at least a nonstop thing you're working on. You can really get burnt out on it. And the thing we didn't want to do is get so tired that we made a wrong decision. Out of just because we felt fired. So the process of making the movie took longer than I think some do, but a lot of that is in part because we allowed ourselves to take a breath if we needed it. Yeah, that's extremely important. I mean, you pretty much said it like you have to step back and do something fun, relax and then come back to it, right? I mean, that was guilty. I feel guilty. Exactly. Well, I mean, I was going to ask you about what your advice for filmmakers was, but I can not set out, but let me make sure that's where it doesn't have another question. And then I'll ask my final question that you girls go with just show the trader one more time do a little plug for Amazon Prime because I know that it's on Amazon Prime and then go from there. I'll check well also if we have any questions on our site. It was exploring your social media. And I was interested because you put it on your Facebook our hopes, raise autism awareness, brand jobs to our community, provide opportunities for women to live if you want it to elaborate on those. Yeah. I think it was really cool. We were able to pay our crew and we were really proud of that. It wasn't a huge amount. But we were also able to give them an interest in the film. So once the film makes money, our hope is that it does because we don't have investors. It is our crew and our cast and we can give that money back to them. In 2018 when we filmed our town was in a really big world for any filmmaking happening in the area. And it kept everyone energized. I think it kept. It gave people opportunities for roles they hadn't begun before. And now they've moved on to studio productions in our doing those roles. So I think got that goal and yes, number one is to raise autism awareness and acceptance in this film to get people talking about it. And to just promote the message that there is no such thing as normal. And we are here to accept each other but also ourselves. And then finally, from when it in film, you know, one of the reasons we set out to even write female characters is because we are actors first. And we auditioned for a lot of roles that were very grateful to audition for their typically very small and they could be like dumb blond or quirky white dress and we're like, ah, women are so much more than that. And so our hope is that people can see two female characters interacting that just have a family relationship and the complexities that come behind that. So those are our hopes. Thanks for reading those. I clearly asked about them. That's awesome with those goals that you have for this film. I was just amazing. Yeah, and I think that's important. That's very important to have goals. I mean, other than that, I think you have given great advice throughout the whole talk right now, which is really what we want to do. And I think you couldn't have said it better that, you know, you're doing this for yourself. Obviously, but also people get opportunities because they do a project. You know, like not a lot of times, you know, people are just doing something in the last 6 because something there's always someone watching, right? I always say that. There's always someone looking at your staff and then seeing what's out there and it's great that you're actors or maybe someone got a production somewhere out of that. And I think that's the most rewarding experience that you can get as a filmmaker to really see somebody in your film, making it as well. So we're going to do a little plug. How do we find your film? So I'll put it on the comments after the link, but yeah, so you can find drought on Amazon Prime. This week actually we're running a special where you can rent for 4.99 and purchase for 9.99. But then at the end of this week, you'll go back up to its normal price. You should just buy it then, right? You know? Yeah. And if you like it, it would mean so much if you guys rated it and murdered you. I'm an honest review. You know, that's really important to us. So yeah, it was on prem. Okay. All right. So this is I promise this is the last question, okay? So this is just if you were to tell yourself before you even started this project. One thing that you would have done differently, maybe just or you would have told yourself before you got this project going like that, maybe yeah, we could have gotten different at different ways. You know, like, oh, sorry, Meg's. You know, you go first. I was thinking you have sex. Okay. I feel like everything was supposed to happen the way it was. So I wouldn't change anything because had learned so much. The learning curve on this project was huge because every single role that Megan and I stepped into was new. But I will say if I could go back and tell myself something that I'll continue to tell myself for the next projects that we do, I really struggled on set and only Megan really knows this. As a director, because I felt like I was completely under qualified, which I was and still am. But I felt like I needed to know everything. Especially technical stuff, which I was not familiar with at all. And so I really got in my head when I was in director mode that I just was so inadequate and it made it was just really unhealthy. Unhealthy thoughts, you know, of like, I'm not good enough or like, no one's gonna listen to me, all that stuff. It's such a waste of time. And so what, maybe I don't know all the answers, but that's why you have a team. So I think I would go back and tell myself just chill. Just trust your gut. You know that other people are working just as hard, you don't have to know the answers, and that's why you have all these great people with you. So yeah, I think that's maybe something that I go back and tell myself. Intel others, you don't have to know everything, just take it one step at a time. That's perfect. Yeah. You know, it's going to sound cheesy. It's mine. It's about the same. I would think in my modes though if I don't know something, I try to learn everything I can about it. And sometimes you just don't have the capacity. I don't need to know everything that the gaffer is doing. As I do more or sound or the first AC or DIT, you know, I wanted to know everyone was doing. I think that comes from a good place. And I think what Hannah's talking about comes from a place of wanting to be a good team, team member. But being a good team member is sometimes releasing responsibility and letting people do what they're there to do. And as we do more projects or as you can do more projects out there, you'll learn more and more each time. And you'll feel, I think more like you have more knowledge of everything going on. It's okay if you don't. That's perfect. I think that's perfect by this way. I mean, pretty much what we've been saying and we're gonna keep saying it and we're gonna try to do this little segment as much as we can find filmmakers that are doing great things in this area and outside this area because I think we're all connected anyway. So maybe one, maybe one day we'll get to work in a project together, and definitely. Ladies, we wish are the best and the best of luck on your future and it looks like it's gonna be a pretty good one. I mean, you have a great movie that I think is going to inspire not only filmmakers, but just anyone looking to just be creative.

It was like a lot of rumors that there was going to be an event sooner than it didn't happen and i just stuff happening on social media. But you know everyone's trying to always predict when the next apple events going to be because it tends to mean new products to look at or at least they're going to announce and there's many different products that could fit into somebody's events. Many product categories where people are waiting for new things. Well as always new things. Well of course it seems kind of funny that whole process of waiting for the new thing when there's always new things it's like china line it exactly with the newness like i want it.

American Rescue Plan 02/27/22 part two
"Second part. But if not, I will do a third part. I want to thank you for listening to the vote Voice podcast vote Voice is a 501 c 3 nonprofit. You can follow us on Instagram Twitter. We're on Facebook. We have a website at ww.w off vote voiced., and we thank you for your support. I thank you for following us to the second half of the American Rescue plan by accident bitin and we're going to get started. So I can start to read out. Because I think that we need to know ourselves. What is in President Biden's rescue plan so that we have this information for ourselves. We're not depending on anyone to tell us what's in the plan we need was in the black and I know there's a lot of people calling up to Washington because as I'm reading this everything's playing out in Washington right now, this is February 27th. 2021 and right now in Washington this plan is going through the system many people oppose it. It's very much needed and we need to know what's in this plan so that we know if we support this plan or not. Okay, so I'm going to pick up where I left off in part one of President Biden's American Rescue plant. And right now we're at at the point where the president has laid out his plan for extended and expanded unemployment insurance benefits. So American workers can pay their bills around 18 million Americans rely on the unemployment insurance program. Congress did the right thing by continuing expanded eligibility and extending the number of weeks unemployed workers can receive benefits off one study estimates that extending pandemic unemployment insurance programs through 2021 could create our save over five million jobs. These benefits are set to expire in weeks. Even as the covid-19 pandemic worsens millions of Americans are receiving benefits check through Unemployment Insurance programs. That will no longer serve new beneficiaries starting in mid-march, and I believe they have to have this off everything in place in Washington by March I think they're trying to do it by March 14th. Because the plan is fastly going

Bill Gates looks back at ‘The Road Ahead’ after 25 years and some hit-and-miss tech predictions
"A look back at what Bill gates got right and got wrong in his book road ahead. This is based on a bill gates blog. Post talking about that stuff. And it's interesting because i had kinda forgotten this but back in nineteen ninety-five when this book was written. He was talking about What do you call digital agents. Which today we call digital assistance. Cortana syria lexus. Google assistant Was pretty forward looking. You know although he says These things are not as sophisticated as envisioned that they would you know twenty five years ago which is kind of interesting but you know what he doesn't say and i find i find this to be somewhat fastening. This book was really controversial Because when it came out it barely mentioned the internet. You know And i mean a month after this came out microsoft its giant pivot where they embraced the internet and You know announced internet explorer and a and they fully embrace the web and he actually came out with a second edition of the book that added the word internet about one hundred and fifty times just to make wa So year later almost a year later they came out with a revised version of the book. but yeah. I mean back. Then you know microsoft well you know. Proprietor proprietary software company there still thinking very proprietary so he saw the need for networks obviously and worldwide global. And all that. But i'm sure he envisioned microsoft being a gatekeeper. That thing you know at the time So that was kind of but yeah. I remember when this came out. It kind of solidified my distaste for these kinds of books. You know i. I was reading the wikipedia entry. But they're like it coulda reception is being very tepid mike. That's a good word for how this book was. Because he used a lot of management jargon and like big ideas. And i'm like yeah but tell us what you actually think about. What's going to happen next because you actually have done. A lot of comdex presentations used to tell us stuff all the terrain and it used to be great. It used to be amazing. You'd be like wow. Is that really the future. And then you read this and you're like wait. What happened between that and the book right. I mean look i. It's anyone who knows anything about bill. Gates it probably has a little bit of a problem with the tech visionary thing but i mean he did foresee the digital transformation stuff that we're that's happening today. He saw video on demand very early. They had a project tiger that was seeking to basically make net flicks back in the nineties He saw pocket computers of course Many years before we have iphones and androids and things like that. So i mean he you know but he'd been spot on the internet aware then he you. You did mention this but he is now going to write another book Which is called how to avoid climate disaster where he's talking about climate change and Yeah this this could be given what he does now with the gates foundation. I think a little more sweeping and maybe more interesting. We'll definitely be more sobering in it. Just yeah yes if we can turn off all those data centers. We wouldn't have. I told you the internet was bad. I don't know why did pay attention in one thousand nine didn't mention it back losing it. That's it's twenty five years. it's amazing. It was twenty five years ago. Nathan myhrvold Was one of his collaborators on the book which is interesting given that he went onto intellectual ventures. Yeah i still have the contents of it on my nass somewhere i of the day. Yeah don't know if it would install these days. It's probably a what they built. Probably some base thing also we have in in. This is interesting microsoft and joins apple and amazon. In saying hey so so in this court case with google. We'd really like it if you didn't share all of our data with jewel 'cause that wouldn't be great also. At and t. Comcast duck duck go oracle sonos and t mobile. Wow i just find this interesting. Because the all of these Big tech Internet anti-trust cases are all based on this notion of the gatekeeper. Right apple is the gatekeeper. I s amazon is the gatekeeper to online shopping. Google is the gatekeeper basically to the internet or the web in the idea. There is that you're searching for things. And they those companies control the search. They see what you're searching for and they can see what's popular. They can offer up their own stuff. Instead you know amazon. Does that with amazon basic stuff. They're like oh look. Batteries are selling great. Let's make batteries. Find the cheapest chinese batteries and get slap a log autumn. And we'll set. We're under price. Them will sell a million of. It's worked out pretty great right so basically no one goal to do this to us through the evidence for providing in this case the idea being that google's lawyers will see the evidence. Go back to google and say hey Apples working on this thing that you might want to know about ever and they would like the stuff to be marked as confidential not in not be something that google's lawyers could bring back to google so it'll be in gogol has said We would never do that. What do you mean. Of course not having with alaska do better say this. If it did happen. I mean we would disclose that. That'd be
The Simple Genius Of The W W W Business Plan Template
"I am not talking wrestling and I am not a talking internet as the rain comes culting down outside. What I'm talking about is who what and when and that is the simple Genius of what is potentially a business plan template model that you can use for your business. Now something I picked up from Naomi Simpson who is one of the Sharks on the Australian version of the Shark Tank and this was a rerun of an episode from a few months ago. I think but what she said in speaking to one of the would-be entrepreneurs was what she looks for in her businesses is who is going to do what and by when so that's the three W's of business and if you really think about it, sometimes when we look at our business plans we get bogged down in so much detail, which is important to understand but it's sometimes prevents us from drilling down. Under what really matters which is what needs to be done. When do we need to do it and who is going to actually do it? So I reckon that is a fantastic template for anyone who's looking to do a business plan right now, maybe instead of getting bogged down in the detail start with the three W's and work out what's really important and quite simply in one sheet of paper. You can probably have the Crux of old business plan right there at least the ww.w business plan credits and I have your Simpson for that one. All righty that
The Xbox Series S could have had a very different look
"Been able to get an xbox yet. No thank you bringing it up again. Really want. Either neither of you guys get one I should just try. To get it of course, she would. Then you could auction it off between. Two Thousand Dollars Mary Jo. Wanted to take pictures of it like it is plant in. Exeter, the S. E. Has. Sleep on it. That is something by the way, the a lot of people buying the S. For, some reason because it's Everyone wants the X. Right. All the cool kids get the s like because the s the cheap. One. I think some people are buying experts. One S is. By the way that definitely happened. Because really. The problem with this branding these these names and bass confusing when you see the Can Get. Lucky. On a different level though. So remember with xbox one, there were there was the original xbox one that was the s and the ex they were all xbox one consoles. So, what do you call consoles? There's a series s in a series act. So what's the name of the console? Generation? Right xbox series series. It's a terrible name. It's not a name I'm convinced that there are a lot of DADS out there. Who went out and bought it. Soon. Harmony and they saw the one s great. This is what junior wanted to go the accident. Got It at a crazy low price. They think they're geniuses way. Save GonNa. Tell, Christmas Day. I was going to be a problem. Yeah Anyway Is it expected Sony said they would this would happen that there will be another trunch of. Xbox and so you just keep your eye on these sites and I emailed Microsoft Unai told me that there would be more before the line good publicly. However, it's been interesting because I've seen other places quote him as saying we will have more at lunch. but they told me Berlin. So yeah, I actually, I put a dedicated Ethernet port in the wall for it. Yeah I'm serious. Screen again I painted. I have a home for you just come on. So he said, this is the xbox series confused. That means that would help. That's a weird problem but the branding I know why I mean s Synnex kind of map to the previous down like I get that part of it but but what generate they didn't they left out what generation this is. Very. Strange. Yeah. That's confusing I. Think it's

COVID-19 Learning Hubs
"Over affluent parents organizing private learning pods. You have found that there's actually an alternative emerging for families who don't have the means to hire private nannies or tutors. Tell us about that alternative. Yes, So I've been tracking these all over the country in New York City's Amber disco to Memphis, Tennessee, and they're sometimes called learning Hubbs or learning labs. And these air being organized by cities themselves or by school districts offer groups of students a safe place to go during the day and help with remote learning and free WiFi, which a lot of families don't have. And what's really important is they're either free thes. Cubs or very low cost and subsidised for the families that need it. So what exactly do these learning labs heir Learning hubs look like It's it's combo school, plus aftercare yet, basically so these air, you know, obviously really small groups of kids that's important for Corona virus safety. The locations are ranging from, You know, a school building A Y M C. A. A library. Some organizations are looking at the leasing space is like maybe even an empty university campus or a gym. And then, in some cases, school employees are actually working at thes helps. For example, I remember Station reporter over you has a WW Eno. She visited two of these learning hubs in New Orleans. And, she says, while child care is a really big draw. Families are also coming for the WiFi. Let's take a Listen. Dwight D. Eisenhower Charter School School leaders greet mass clad students as they make their way into the building. School normally serves more than 600 students. But today it's expecting fewer than two dozen It's because in New Orleans public schools are technically still close and learning is entirely virtual. Students that are here are attending the schools learning, huh? The cafeteria. Kids were separated into socially distance groups of nine each, quietly working away on their own device. They are loved in their signs up everywhere for the WiFi for she wants to get on to And then there are a lot of adults floating around to help and all the kids are wearing masks. Faculty are wearing masks and face shields as well. Hubs run by educators. Eisenhower principal Rolanda Green says a lot of students are here. For one thing. It literally is to get Internet access. And if you needed technology, we have it here available for you. City estimates that more than 9000 New Orleans students may not have Internet access for remote learning. It's far more kids in the local learning hubs are currently serving. Eisenhower is part of the inspired Nolan Charter Schools Network, which is funding and operating free hubs for almost 600 students. New Orleans public schools has committed to providing every student with a tablet or a laptop. But the devices aren't very helpful without an Internet connection. You can have a computer and can't utilize Google glass rooms right. That's Timlin, Sam's inspired Nola's director of community engagement. She says the hubs are an essential tool for ensuring equal access to virtual learning. She also points out that in New Orleans, a majority black school district, white Children are more likely to attend. A private school are private and parochial schools are back in session. None of our public schools are So we'll white Children are more likely to be back in the classroom. Black and brown students are mostly learning from home in many cases without reliable Internet. Spirt. Nola's hubs offer both Internet and supervision, but only one or two days a week. And even with staggered attendance, the network says it's at capacity with a wait list more than 200 students long City of New Orleans. Also operating learning hubs out of libraries and rec centers like this one in New Orleans East Just open five days a week. Seven greater as moral to Smith says she's happy to get out of her house. I just think I needed the time away from all the noise and distracted at home to come here and I quietly A peaceful Emily Wolf with the mayor's Office of Youth and Families says the city has tried to make the hubs accessible, especially for low income families and those with no Internet. There is still considerable barriers. Families are responsible for transportation and the hubs get funding from the federal government, which involves a lot of paperwork. You know, we wish we could just have him fill out a simple registration performing get signed up right away. But that made it a little bit slower. And unfortunately, you know, for some families, they see all of that. And It's just a barrier. Wolf says. Family submitted interest forms for more than 1000 students in mid August, But so far only 100 Children are registered. City has room for 500 students and is already looking to expand. While the district's youngest students have the option to return to the classroom in mid September, older students will continue with virtual learning until at least mid October. For NPR

No Apple live event this year likely
"All Right! It's almost September in for a tech reporter like myself enrich dimuro. We've been covering these apple events. Every September really excited about seeing new iphones and what we're being told is for the first time this year. No that it's GonNa be virtual just like The developer's conference was recently, and it got me to thinking rich. What are we missing by by having? Basically a TV, show online well. The first thing we're missing is the hands on with the gadgets after their announced, and so, what normally happens is apple goes on stage. They throw a whole bunch of stuff up on the screen. Do a couple of Demos, which is all great, but then the journalists get to go. Go to a separate room and actually have some hands on time with this stuff where you can really see what's going on. You can see the nuances and the software how the engineering is of the hardware and understand what this product is going to look like for the usually two or three or four weeks before it hits store shelves and I think that's that's very valuable especially when it comes to reviewing products and we're definitely going to miss out on that this year. I just don't think it's the same to have to watch the TV show for two hours which which we would do anyway, so the iphone event is the biggest event of the year. HANDS DOWN NO QUESTION I. Would always tell you it is, but nothing happens. They're the IPHONE. Stuff really happens but I gotta I gotTA. I gotTA wonder. Ww See I saw the headlines, but it was not the same now of course, iphone, ww or two different kind of events. This is a developer's conference, so it's not as big consumer thing, but it just didn't hit like an iphone event would when you say. Absolutely, not no, of course not and the sad part is you're right, but they did announce a lot of interesting things that I think we might have seen like especially with the car key stuff like they probably would have had a BMW, or they might have been doing private drives with some journalists to show off that new feature because what happens is there is the headline that gets placed on all the newscasts on that day in all the newspapers and all the websites. Websites, but then there's a trickle of secondary headlines and little inside scoop that these journalists and with W WDC. We really didn't see that because nobody like I, said everyone sort of had the same access, and it was weird and I think that apple did a pretty good job of of commanding some of the news after that, but not the same way with the iphone and the differences. You've got every single reporter that's local to their company and their station and their outlet. Hands on with these devices, and of course that's what's GonNa play because they all have their own followers. They've all got their own viewers and listeners, and that's really what they wanna see. They WANNA see their person with the new device. Well. We're not going to do it this year, but my perdition is September fifteenth. Tuesday for the event I could be wrong. We'll see and analysts. Oh, you've got a date prediction. And and the analysts I've spoken to predict the first week of October four new phones with the top of the line phone, being ready for five G., the Super high speed wireless service that is slowly rolling out.
A Developer's Summer, with Underscore David Smith
"Hello everyone this is David sparks joined by my fellow co-hosts Mr. Stephen Hackett I Stephen Hey David. How are you good I feel like this week is kind of putting the capper on our W. WDC coverage. Finished up last week, we were able to talk about quite a bit during the during ww see, and then we talked about our Betas last week this week. We thought we bring in somebody who has a unique and interesting perspective on it. Welcome back to the show David Smith. You it's A. It's a pleasure to be here I mean I was? It's an honor to be on power users so I'm glad to be able to kind of come in gas lend a developer perspective to all the announcements that we just had. Thinking that you'd be the perfect guest for it by pay, we just had him on and then I looked twenty seventeen, so. I don't know what happened there in my head, but The you know David you were telling me before the show started. How many wwe cs have you participated in a believe? This is number twelve for me and my first one is in two thousand and nine, and I've been essentially attended in some form ever ever since so it's been like this regular fixture in my family that as far as like in which. That's longer than my children have. Our old, so like from their perspective, daddy always disappears for a week in June like that's just a part of a part of life that I'm sure they expect happens to every father in the world. They just June is when they go to California, but that's. It was a very unusual year to just actually just stay at home and be here, but sort of not here. kind of station in the basement to a just a after shift myself to California time, and then also just there's so much to do. But generally speaking, it was definitely a different year than all the others that I've had the privilege of experiencing. As, someone who's been W. DC with you? I think we one year we stay together and the relay Commun-. The but I feel like you are somebody that really always. My observation takes advantage of WBZ. You're always hustling to get to meetings and and get the content and I feel like you are in my mind for lack of a better term, a lunch pail developer just show up and you get the work done, and I've always appreciate that about you. So, let's talk, you know. You watched it from home this year I guess That was that. It was different I. Mean on the one hand. It was kind of Nice to be able to like my wife set next to me on the Sofa and we questioned on our TV, and it was. It was kind of Nice to share that with her. Because while we sometimes, we'll do that for things like phone announcements, or you know other apple events throughout the year when I'm not in California You know she's heard me talk about WDC many times and WC announcements are the ones that I like kind of lose my mind and be super excited, and like it's in a way that is unusual that it's not. As to you know with an iphone announcement because a cool new camera that's kind of clear and accessible, but like I'm losing my mind over some minor thing that they just mentioned and she has no idea and it was kind of a fun thing. I think for us to be to share that But it was definitely a bit odd to. Then just like just like. I watched the Hino, and then I go and sit at my at my regular, my regular office and I can download all the Betas, and like get started right away rather than like frantically trying to eat like an awful box lunch in between the keynote in the state of the Union and then like sometime later somehow try and get the. Betas installed over Chino potentially and not so reliable Wi fi, and so like it was definitely a very different Monday for WGC than I'm used to though I kind of liked it like it was kind of Nice I felt like I was super productive like in a very intense way which? Definitely took the weekend to recover from, but it was. It was different, but in a good way I, think is the best summary for how serve the General Rafeal if WGC was for me. The general take wagon talking to developer friends. It's like it was a more more is week easier to get information easier to manage Betas and find out what exactly what's going on. You're not kind of in the thick of it. But it was less useful of direct access to apple engineers. Maybe I'd say from my experience like they had labs this year. Which is alive that typically WGC they have these big sessions where apple engineers are available to attendees who go into, ask your questions, which is the one time of year typically where you're able to interact with an apple engineer, because typically they're locked. Locked away in Cupertino and can talk about anything related to what they're working on, but this one week they get let out in are allowed to do that. And I was very curious to see what they did for. The labs experience this year and worked well like I think I attended five or six lives, and they were just kind of like voice. Conference calls I could share I could share my screen to to the call if I had some code I needed to show them or something. I wanted them to kind of look at and by and large. That process was actually very efficient, and from the kind of likes to the way they structured. It is I mean they were available to anyone who had a pay developer account so I. Don't Know How many people that is in the world, but it is almost certainly. Probably millions if not. Like tens of millions and it was just kind of you signed up. You submitted a question, and they had of reviewed them the day before and assigned to a lab based on as like, do you? Did you actually see Mike? You had a reason a question. That's useful and. Effective to answer, and it was to the asking esque, the right lab, or the right place and feuded, both those things like I was able to get my labs, and got my questions answered, and so that was actually kind of cool. I think only part. I missed was really like. You're talking about the sexting at the the relay commune. Having that kind of that sense of community and being around other people. Like the idea. Of being on site in San Jose was something that I certainly missed this year, and that's a tricky thing to quantify 'cause i. think in most other ways. The Co like the conference was better for being virtual like the session videos were better, and they were more accessible in the sense that they are available immediately to everybody they all have full transcripts that are searchable and so are accessible, just both from an ex. A accessibility perspective of perse people for people for whom listening to video is difficult. They have the transcript immediately available, and they can do. Watch close captioning as Equally accessible to everybody irrespective, if you have the means and the resources and the ability to go to saint, say or not you just if you have an Internet connection, you have exactly the same connection, and then like all the content was super polished
"Ww DC and data. Season is upon us every year. I, I, him in Haw, and I always install all the Betas usually. We don't cover them a lot. Until the we're closer to release, but because of this year that changes are so significant, and people are just so interested in the stuff that Steven and I, both kind of made a point to go a little crazy with Beta installs and we've been using them now for a weekend. I thought it'd be fun to report how these features are working and. And given. This is Betas with some of this stuff could change, but you know. Let's kind of dive in deep on it I will say you've gone a little deeper than I have so the pool right I'm swimming in the pool. You did a cannonball from the top of your house into the deep end. Oh, I did I. Did I I wrote a post in the payers forum saying Hey Steven I've gone a little crazy with the bait. If you've got questions, let us know and a team. Oh, wrote crazy like install watch os Beta. And one of us did I'll give you one guess. Not, me. Like I had actually Rosemary. went in that pool I I said well. Did you watch blow up anything? She says well when I wash my hands at once crash, but otherwise it's been fine, and like you know it and also I feel kind of cavalier this year because I'm home, not traveling. if if my phone gets to messed up I can always unwind. The Beta I'm. Home doesn't matter that much so I. I didn't feel that bad about it, so so let's just Let's list the devices right What have you got? The BETAS installed on, so I've got the Beta on a external SSD that. I'm booting my macbook pro from I, need my fro some later this year, so I'm not willing to put the bait on at directly yet. And running it on my I've had many other. My leverage IPAD PRO is probably going to succumb to it. By the time this episode comes out out of my phone, and the definitely not my Mac pro The this machine is where I make my living, and it will stay on Catalina for some time, but yes. I'm playing with it kind of getting my. Getting in the pool. I spent more time with it on the Max I've got thoughts around that, but. I want to get back. Somebody said a second ago. The interest in Beta cycle is way higher than it normally feels like. And maybe that's because a lot of people aren't home. Life's a little bit slower now. It's because like big Sur in particular is a huge change having we just on your iphone. Who Change like there's a lot of things that are really attractive about these Betas. Wherein some years it's like yeah, it's better, but you know. You can live without it for three more months. Some of the stuff people want to really experience now. Yeah, agreed. And and there is kind of some themes to these Betas as we go through it. In the show today I started with the Beta on my is because I have two IPAD pros because I'm that guy so I started with a on the big IPAD pro and it was running fine, and then it quickly cascaded over a couple of days. And I put it on the laptop, so I had big Sur on the laptop in it on the IPAD. Then suddenly I had it on the second IPAD I had on my own. I also put it on my Mac pro because we have a the way. The recording situation is right now in the sparks headquarters. Has You know there's there's four people living in fifteen hundred square feet and so? My studio isn't really where I'm recording shows where my I MAC PRO is. It's where I do all the edits and all that stuff, but I'm not doing the recording there My old studio has been turned into my daughter's. Daughter's bedroom, but we have an extra in there, and that is the kind of recording machine I'm sitting at it right now, so my fancy Mike and Everything so that one is not upgraded or or running Betas, but but but the all the others should Max. The to Max I own are and then a few days ago I. Put on the watch, too. Because I as I told Rosemary and the automakers. If it breaks, it's her fault. But it's you know so, I, I've been reading on everything. This one thing that you may have heard in the news is these are pretty stable Betas I. think partly because wwe came later. This is more like Beta or Beta three in normal year. That being said do as we say, we do. Don't don't know these. If you need to get your work done Yada Yada Yada Yeah. I, mean they're still developer Betas. At this point, you have to have a developer account. The Public Beta will be in July. That's when they're more widely accessible and usually in the past. At least it's been to developer bills for everyone public Betas so. Developer Beta two or three be public Beta one and there'll be a couple of developer builds and then. A couple more puppets, this sort of tiktok approach, and just because this Betas good doesn't mean the next one will be in fact very often. They get worse before they get better. So yeah, do what we say like. Let us take the pain and you know if you have a spare me, shake my head many if it bursts into flames, that'd be sad, but it's not the end of the world. Then yeah, I think it's fine to play with on that, but definitely out of production machine now something you need for work because you can this situation where the you know, it's always like the one happy really need the one workflow you really depend on. That's the one that's broken for months. That'll get you.

"My team. Yeah wish I could be there. Did I miss anything? Thanks we have just had. It summed up by Walter. I thank you listen. This commentary doesn't come cheap. I think this this image is memorable. Show the screen right now. That is me mable. I'm just saying if somebody doesn't put him up real quick down moving along so Is there any insight that you can give us about bill stepping down? Is it just? It was a natural transition right. This is the next. It's been broadly reported. As the end of an era and the end of the era really happened when he stepped onto CEO. Although that wasn't the clean break everyone thought it was. He's been stepping back from Microsoft progressively ever since fairly gradual. I mean he was still consulting right he was still talking to people will say well my Nigga element of lead this curve cloud storage but this must have been really bill gates like what are you talking about. Yeah I I think we need as people work at. The company need this. People follow the company's shareholders Investors need these transitions to help us move onto these new arizo gates steps down. Co but he's the chairman of the board of well. He was the chief science officer. Whatever it was Becomes the chairman. Now he's stepping down you know he's the Advisor Today. Still Not really leaving right at technically. He's always there Like Grima wormtongue to whisper into the air when he needs it. I mean I you know I we the there's GonNa be posted world that occurs and that will be the part of Microsoft wear the there no founders left there no early employees laughed but we can't go from Gates A C. O Two that we have to make these transitions right middle and I think this is just part of that. Natural Progression Microsoft has been lucky Or that's not the right word but Microsoft has Gates's Microsoft since he found out on the company. Nineteen seventy six. Seventy seven seventy six. Whatever one of the biggest shareholders? Yeah by the way doesn't media's forty something percent of the stock he has like it's like I know small really. Oh I assumed you'd have ten fifteen twenty one percent one point. Sounds like Steve Bomber may be the biggest real independent his but bills fortune. Is I mean he goes back and forth from being the richest man in the world? Alternating WITH JEFF. Bezos is his fortune entirely based on that one percent of Microsoft. He's invested his mother. Money could yeah. Yeah I mean essentially yes. It all came from that for a long time. That was all that. Was it right because they always talk about Bill Gates? Eighteen billion dollars today as Microsoft's tumbled twenty dollar bill on the ground I mean. How much did we lose by stopping the not worth it? It's gotten me a thousand or it's not worth his time it. Just the timing of it was weird because five. Pm Friday right right. And I think my pure pure guess not not. No one told me this. But I'm like you know what it's been a really tumultuous week in the stock market and they probably like our stock has plummeted with everybody else this week. We'll just announce a bills like stepping down. And oh well we'll just take the head. Everyone misreported this. Says the end of an era in other words blockbuster. News like as if Microsoft hasn't suffered enough this week. You know co founder. Bill Gates is walking away from the company. I mean plus not to mention. He's working on world world health issues. I mean right. You could make the case like Toronto viruses so bad Microsoft you know. Dates can't focus on Microsoft anymore. He has to work on the corona virus That would have been better way. To put it right well. Ama His gaze during the Ama. Yeah but about corona virus like. That's what he's focused on. I think I have to feel like so. Do you think this was planned for years in this time line? Or maybe Kerr virus hastens this. I don't know. Hey I think you know. He's he's been a regular board member since twenty fourteen right so six years you stepping off the board as well right. He's not the board as well. That's the whole thing. He was chairman for a while but he stepped down for that. Even a couple of he was chairman till two thousand fourteen. Then he's then. He became a regular board member after that. And that's what I mean. He's been kind of slowly. There's no one point where gates does leaves like He. You know he dies or whatever I mean I you know He. He's always retained. He's retained never smaller. Kind of connection to the company I don't I'm not saying that ever meet. I'm sure that they do. But I can't believe that he exerts a lot of influence over such Adele at this point it just. It just doesn't seem possible for this man to lead the company and slept worry about this guy over in the corner. You know so. It's good I mean such. I don't think such is going shrill took along l. Glad to get rid of their involvement was fairly minimal. Yeah yeah to me. The bigger announcement that about gates stepping away. And I'm saying this partially. Outta my own self interest was in two thousand eight. That's when he left his day to day duties at the company. And the reason I know that when I published my book about Microsoft because I tied it to him leaving the company right so you don't what you're going to every twelve years. That's the rule I can I can. I can help.

Sumers right that infamous category that keep trying to get to with their various productivity products. So I I don't think to be clear. I don't think this is any of the surface announcements that were expecting. I don't think it's surface Goto or surface book three. I've had people say that's gotTa be what it is but I don't think later although by the way I do wonder if they will not attack those things on right I don't think so you don't think okay is early But you know why they wanNA THEY WANNA build more thunder for their announcements throughout the year right so if they did all of these things together. They're missing an opportunity to make a big deal out of Goto in a big deal out of service book three right so I mean do I feel like it's also maybe two months earlier than they would they plant in service right. Yeah I wouldn't be surprised to see Microsoft instead of having one big hardware announcement like they typically do in New York in the spring to Kinda trickled out there hardware announcements as virtual separate virtual events over the summer months make sense. I think they're wrapping up game stack. Live now gotta hope that's going to be available on demand but well you can continue the conversation did he. Give them a tour of his Home Office Tori and Oval. Photo frames always a here in Washington state by the carpet on the floor. The other big story of course. Bill Gates stepping down from the Microsoft Board. But this is. He's my age a little older. He's retiring basically right. It's going to work on a ship putting ships in a bottle and charity shifts. Give me a little credit. I mean the guys post Microsoft career has been a giant mal again and I got a I I really appreciate the philanthropy and the yeah trying to save the world from stuff. I my whole issue. This is like God. I'm sorry I was going to say what made everybody kind of suspicious about this is. When did they announced this Friday at five pm? Okay minute so master. Chief has just appeared on the Stream. I think we're I think we're getting ready to To See we'll talk about the master chief..

"Use the Android apps switch pretty good you can use the web APPs which is actually really good and that's that that's what kind of kick this offer me. I was like you know I could actually do a lot of my I could pretty much get all my stuff done in the online web based versions of office three sixty five the only minor issue being that you literally need need to be online for that to work and that's something. I don't understand why they haven't fixed they don't have offline versions of their Web APPs. I suspect that will change is but there's some neat things if you if your throat premium subscriber you can see. I wrote about this office extension attention for chrome which works in the new as well. If you want to do it this way but it's kind of an interesting front end to your dry storage the documents you've access recently and also all of the Web APPs and so from a single icon up in the toolbar there you can bring down this menu in access all of the Microsoft stuff on the web as well as all your documents and then go to one drive. If you want to see the rest of it I it's not the way I work. It's a it's a real different kind of a workflow but it's clear to me just in doing doing it for the past week or so at ten days. Whatever it's been like I could do this like this. Is this is just as efficient as what I do. It's just that I'm used to this other way and the other way being when Dr Client in a in Windows that sinks things and I go into a specific folder have documents and so forth. This is another way of doing that and it's it's. It's pretty clear. It's just as good yeah this picture of the little thing I was just talking about. I care wallpaper yeah. That's the momentum meant him new tab replacement as that's pretty so how much do chromebook do you. I mean this is a great series. Do you really yeah so what I've been doing. Is I split my day up. It doesn't really matter what my schedule is like but on a day that I'm not doing a podcast like today obviously two hours. I'm Kinda beat after this but most after noons I work chromebook instead of windows now and I'm kind of a little bit you know it's kind of kicking and screaming thing because like I said it. I feel like once you get used to it. It's probably going to be fine it just as efficient but I'm used to doing things a certain way so there are there certain roadblocks roadblocks. I've run into but you know I've been some things that are coming. I'M GONNA be reading about android APPs about the Lennox stuff about you know one thing I did was I set up android studio and he can develop into red absent a chromebook chromebook which is crazy this. It's how you run Lennox or how you enable Lennox and Chroma right which is the I think you can do now yeah and then they you instructions for downloading enter. You can get visual studio. Code as well if you wanted to do that. That's a little more complicated. That's so cool yeah yeah yeah and it's like this that was kind of what it for me one of the things missing from chromebook which chromebook were using so. I have a three different chromebooks so I have I I have new chromebooks that are kind of high end business class chromebooks from Acer and HP those are not they also have a chromebook that only cost two hundred twenty dollars. That's an HP. It's a low end thing so it's a it's a I think it's a MD chip four gigs of Ram thirty two gigs of EMC storage. It's a thirteen sixty six place. Seven sixty eighth grade sounds terrible. Honestly it's great. isn't that funny. You're not GONNA do. We know you're not doing android APP development now but that's what that's as far as they don't you can't use that he's your standards of Pc's for these device Yep Yep so some of you look you can get a a lot like the chromebooks the other ones the. I don't know the exact models I think it's hp it's an HP be chromebook. Three sixty fourteen. I think is the name of it probably has eight gigs Ram. Yeah these are really expensive. It's a nine hundred dollars thousand dollar machine but you can but you can do androids stuff on that you can run multiple android apps on that like it's kind of impressive but it was interesting interesting approaching office three sixty five from another perspective obviously a lot of people use chromebook and use. Google drive. They're gonNA use Google Docs. I don't mean to suggest otherwise is but for people coming from windows and you want that kind of familiarity or you just have all us like we all of us. Everyone listening. This probably has all this data up in one drive like well. How do I access up from a chromebook. I can't sync with the file system. in by sink. I mean literally sink like have a copy of the data offline and so forth you can access. Actually he can't anymore that went away but for while you could access one dry for the file system. It was kind of Buggy. I hear it's coming back. It's not there now so what are the alternatives you can use like an android. APP which works okay like one drive you could use the the the word France etcetera you could use about the web APPs and so I've been using the Web APPs I find for me that they work better. If used the web versions of the office APPs word in particular you get that new simplified ribbon which I think is nice like what you see in one note and it's it's surprise surprise like I said surprisingly good. I mean it's it's fine. It's different but it's it's. It's very interesting. Yes you don't pay for the version of office that you get the APPS because you don't need them right web version laps office. I'm not sure if it's free or not but I'm using the version where you have five account. I think you can just use it for basic functionality functional. Yeah that could be okay but you don't have to but I think it's business essentials. It's it's cheap. It's five bucks a month. So that's a version. I use windows which really yeah yeah 'cause. I don't really ever use the APP lake. I use word if I have to open a document that someone sends me. I occasionally open fire point or an excel spreadsheet but I don't. I don't really need the full apps yet. Actually fairly good job of opening. Microsoft left office by itself. Yes Oh that's so I should say I've tested as also Google has an extension for chrome to that makes that automatic so if you low to what a word doc let's say it will go into g docs whatever it's called and do some kind of an auto translation like actually let you save it in Word Format automatically bubba about whatever but the interoperability there's is better than I would of imagined Mary Jo Oh phone time for your enterprise pick of the week everybody everybody who's anybody is wondering where is Windows Server nineteen o nine right. We've been testing windows client nineteen o nine or nineteen eighty two whatever you WANNA call it but there have been no insider builds of server nineteen o nine at all in any way so I asked Microsoft this week is they're going to be a server version to match the client version and they have not responded yet but I've heard from one of my context. Yes there will be a server ninety nine. Basically it'll be just like the client it's going to be a refresh of nineteen ninety. Three with a cumulative update date added to it to give you some minor functionality but it's just going to be a very very much a minor release of server. It's odd that has not been in any of the insider rings but maybe they think it doesn't need to be because the refresh will be so minor When is this going to come out. That's the next question I hear soon but what I think soon means here is possibly around October November so yeah there is going to be a server nineteen o nine and that's not all that is not all dynamics fans. That's right Tober I next week Microsoft will be kicking off wave two of their dynamics three sixty five update so they've already put out a whole package of features like hundreds of features hundreds of pages of documentation about what is coming between October and March for dynamics three sixty five users but then this week they announced. There's there's one more thing. There's actually more than one more thing. There's like four or five more things. There are a number of new APPS that we didn't know about until this week that are also coming as part of this wave a number of them use a I in them. you know like they use the branding insights to signify. It's an APP that has ai in it so there's going to be a new APP that we had not heard about called product incites. There's also going to be a new commerce dynamics three sixty five commerce APP. That's going to replace the thing that's currently called dynamics three sixty five retail. There's a new connected store. APP and I think of all the new things they talked about. This week that we hadn't heard about the most interesting to me is starting to brand the AI features that they offer an Azure as Azure a so you know a lot of times we say yeah. What's so a about this right like they say it's a infused or at? Ai has been added but now it's a little more concrete because when you hear them say in the dynamics world this this has a in it what it means is it has one of several products that are in the as your family that our AI. I products so that includes cognitive services it includes. Onyx it includes data bricks it includes machine learning so so now at least we have a little more tangible definition of what a I infused means at least on the dynamic site but again these a lot of these are in private preview view starting October one or they are going to be generally available starting around October through December this year see wave two is about to hit for dynamics here. It is calm speaking of ready for a Cezanne. Yes beer pick of the week is It's a gen barrel sesana listening yeah. If you like Gin. This beer tastes exactly like gin at least to me. It's from hermit thrush there in Vermont they take take their Sesana beer and they put it in a gen barrel. The Gen is also from Vermont that they chose and what comes out I you you know a lot of times when they age a beer and a Tequila barrel urban barrel it still tastes heavily like a beer and just a little bit like the spirit this to me tasted very very I strongly of Jenn so if you like gin you'll really like the season and if you do not you should not touch the season because it really tastes like Jenn so it's a juniper for flavored beer it is it is it was really unusual. I I liked it because I am like you know what there aren't that many Jin barrel aged beers that I know of an and it was very refreshing an interesting an interesting take on us as on on yeah so I have a related question Mary Jo the restaurant bar that we go to who regularly that I always send you photos from because they have such an incredible tap beer selection including that one from European remember last week they tonight are having what they're calling a beer cocktail dinner where they're going to have some selection some range of meal of food items each each of which will be accompanied by a cocktail that has beer in it and I think I've had at least one cocktail with a beer in it. I'm not actually going to this event but is this thing like. Is this the like beer in views cocktails yep. This has become a big trend like a lot of places now have craft beer. Cocktail lists like a separate cuts the list the beer and usually pretty interesting Boca they think of what is the predominant flavor in the beer you know. Is it more flowery flowery or is it more like playoff that now that you say that I think I think the only ones I've we've had personally are actually it's always like an. Ip a kind of for that. hoppy effect can't so it's a cocktail but it what comes through from the beer is the is like the hop say in my day. We call that a boy. Mak- cost only in Baston folks. This is the end of this show now. Next week is going to be a little weird because has why but I'm not going to be here. That's weird one Mike seizing to do we successfully changed the time.

Although Google has a tunnel language APP only has one or two like number. They're always working on new stuff. How about your APP at the week. This is a surprise yeah. It's kind of a weird one because I haven't written about this yet. Although actually I'm kind of contemplating a series on this as well so it's office three sixty sixty five or Microsoft office sixty five case the name changes I still consider this to be the One no-brainer service that Microsoft sells and I think it's something something that most people should probably have. I rely on it. I use it all the time I go back and forth between the consumer and the business version one thing I did change in the past well actually for the past couple of months is I switched my commercial accounts over to I'm GonNa forget the name of it. I think it's called officers sixty five business essentials and this is the one that it's only the web services so you don't get the downloadable office applications you get the email and then you get the web based. Office APPs right you you get a terabyte of storage right which is key and I think this is the thing I the central kind of value here is with any of these well with. I should say with most of them.

These things you like is somebody you're so cheerful. At the beginning of the program I upbeat now. It just reminded e silliness bringing him down. Okay let's do some xbox. Spock settled sure Yep. Oh God actually because the first story no very did you see this. You know in bad covered it. Oh God I love this company so as everybody knows the thing that you don't see from xbox is as we sold X. number of consoles during this time period they haven't said they haven't talked that would be on December twenty thirteen now because they don't sell a lot and they never talk prophets obviously I don't believe we ever get direct revenue numbers and xbox but it doesn't really matter because you don't know what what that means without prophets so what they have been talking about. Is You know again. It's like well. How what what could we shine a light on that looks good you know and one of the things that looked is pretty good was xbox active users and this is a number that was up in the I want to say it was in the fifty to sixty million range something like that and then it started going down on and now they're not going to talk about that anymore. So what are they gonNA talk about. Now are is a new metric. It's called year over year percentage revenue growth for xbox content and services. Mrs And I'll add the word only because the xbox businesses much bigger than content services right. It's in fact are you believe most of it is probably well most of his hardware a lot of its hardware but services obviously subscriptions you know. Xbox live game pass at center her we're running out of ways to say please don't look at xbox like how whoa what's left after this so obviously. Microsoft moving xbox to a kind of a subscription service service or whatever subscription service in the future of the business this is them indicating. We'd like you to focus on that now so yes. We're going to see at least one more xbox hardware console. Seoul they. This is the plan. I mean the next year sometime. Maybe beyond that another one who knows but obviously the long term future is subscription and services and that's what they would like everyone to to look at and so it's like when the magician kind of you know does something over here so you don't look at where the the trick is happening. The trick is the trick. Part is the XBOX console sales. which you know aren't happening? they want you to pay attention to this other thing so you there you go further lack or further. I guess we'll call it blow to transparency but there is there's good news last week. I talked about the games that were coming to the console version of xbox game pass in the second half of September today they announced the Games coming to the PC version rights remember they have three versions of xbox game pass there is the PC version the console version and an ultimate which gives you both twice actually they don't do it on twice a month basis but twice a month they announced what games will becoming during that half of the month and they sometimes they space them not every time but they add new games all the time so they have announced those games. None of them really stuck out in my mind. There was a new saints row game and ticketed remember. They weren't that there. Were there only for them. It wasn't really that big of a deal if you're minecraft Fan you're getting a character editor and it's just as pc as you would expect aspect is gonna be fat or skinny and look like you know you can make your a little bit guy looks look more like you so it's kind of like Emoji or foot ever likening bit guessing call it it's available in the Beta versions of minecraft across multiple platforms. I think it was like pc android xbox and switch. If if I remember correctly and will becoming to everybody sometime in the weeks ahead as we say we do. That's that's our way. Could we said everything's coming some of those weeks or next year but in the coming months or in the weeks ahead they both are where ways they refer to things when they don't WanNa give you a date coming soon soon soon soon soon Is there anything more to say what else minecraft character I played with. I like it yeah. I haven't my kids just yeah. VR Too because it can play minecraft and that's actually I should say sorry you're right they actually designed for minecraft earth once. They started working on it. They were like everybody should have. We got to put this everywhere. This is really neat so yeah that that was the genesis was the minecraft earth. This is not out yet isn't I. I think it's in preview one Maybe that's what they're planning android Ryo remember. I thought that was an early version on one platform and check it out yeah because I would love to play that now. I'm not playing Harry Potter or Pokemon go. I need a new game pokemon. Go is still L. D. number one game by revenue wow on yeah. I'M NOT SURPRISED LISA continues to play thing stand. Why okay all right we we can skip go right into the back of the book if you want with tip of the week and blows his is kind of the week. It's been an interesting week for developer resources. two of these video series one is actually more of a traditional kind of web based thing but Microsoft coincident to the launching of Dot net core has released a series of kind of one on one style videos for their top dot net technology so they have different video video series. There's over eighty videos total this several series so there's a series for C. Sharp the language dot net core. ESPN dot net Zama and Desktop Stop Index etc goes on and on this a bunch of them those are hosted by its Scott Hanson and Kendra kind of got an am since Kendra under havens I like these guys a lot. In fact both these people are fantastic. if you're not a beginner do not watch these kind of painful because they kind of adopt that teacher. Lee Tone where the Little Red Circle and he'll DEMOGRA- it looks like a stop sign. It does look like stops that kind of thing but it but but if you don't know about this stuff and like I as I kind of applied earlier I really think this dot net core stuff is going to become super important as we will forward and it's going to be central to a lot of what Microsoft does cross platform This some neat stuff entertainers entity framework or visual Studio M. L. Dot net dot net for Apache spark. I mean there's there's. There's a lot of stuff there so it's worth it is worth looking at I've only gone through to the series because you know again. There's a little painful but but they're really well made CETERA. If you don't know anything about this stuff it's it's kind of Nice launching a week earlier sometime late last week they also now the released videos free free video series again for beginners for learning python and that's kind of an interesting thing for Microsoft and you think about it but but there it is if you want to learn python and then Google not apropos of anything Microsoft but they released to web based courses which I think they made in they made them with you DASS.

"I like that but uh-huh okay the the problem what's the what's the the marketing position on windows ten and arm for the enterprise right. It's better batteries firstly workers. I I better battery life. You're not saving money like these. Things are not inexpensive. Now you're right or not not not cheap gotcha. Thank thank you don't know where it's not any less expensive than intelligence right so in this compatibility issues. I mean that's a tougher sell than look. We made a chromebook even even better battery life or more security. I mean isn't there something yeah I mean for sure and it's sometimes it's like twice as good on the Battery Life Better Bang and that is important especially yeah yeah but if you know it doesn't matter how long lives if it doesn't run APPS you need at the end of the envy x two. I wouldn't even know much battery life at had because I could use it because that's right exactly that could still be running right now for charge it once in December and that was it. That's that's right right. It's been running slowly well. We'll find out a week from today about how our guesses held a polar fan. Our Chat mm-hmm says that Microsoft put out a tweet. They did an audio Zor. Should I play that means nothing but yeah yeah but it's so much fun you the innovation. Is it a Microsoft account. Where is it ethics surface account. Maybe we'll look at surface. Let confined it. I'm not going to deliver as I tweet too much looking at twitter stream now. It's like Microsoft's here. We go these of the upcoming surfaced. It's the sound of innovation. Hopefully it's not a deflating balloon sound. these are the sounds of the event ready you ready for the sounds. You know what that is right. It's the hinge remember when they did the surface typing off. Would you say the them bringing the funder. Oh and then there was an wasn't the CL. Clicking sound was the hallmark of the original surface announcement. Remember the dancing school the thump though that's the topic so yeah so it's okay you're right. This tells us it sounds like if someone has is finally invented a tablet that can replace them well. They left out the sound of final Kantara being Sirat right. This is the sound of a cat purring. Is you run your hands of the Elkins so yeah. That's completely wheatley tells you nothing right Zilch. Okay there are a couple of updates to surface the surface studio studio. Ten latency is better. I guess I guess we all have to guess because I don't have one but aunts got it all scan hand. Is it the latest better Oh yeah. It's better more interesting. When is the third story. Which is the surface doc updated tool which actually right now house called surface doc update? If I remember they changed one letter so you know these guys yeah good luck updating it by the way it seems like the way this should work because you have one plugged into your computer and you go to Windows update and if there's a firmware update you just get it done for you know controllers and other peripherals. If you ever want to engage agents like you ever like you like. I'm just going to drink a lot or do some drugs and watch really bad movie. That's what this reads like.

"What if you could buy it and use your own thing on. That's that's it's kind of counter counter intuitive but it's interesting. We'll remember. Microsoft Berry has a relationship in place with aws around Cortana and Alexa a partnership right and when they announced that a couple of years ago the way they explained it. Was You know we're we Microsoft or not really doing consumer stuff with our digital assistant but we're going to do business stuff and Amazon at that point was not doing business stuff with its digital assistant but that has changed changed because there's Alexa for work so I think the thinking was we're both going to specialize in different areas and there's enough room for everybody for a piece of the Pie and look. I don't think most people would think this way but it is possible. You might say hey apples assistant. I'm GonNa ask you this question because because you know about this kind of thing hey Microsoft's assistant. I'm going to ask you because you know about this kind of. I don't think that's necessarily the right thing but yeah we'll say that when you compare this is to the original approach of Amazon and Cortana working together ponderous like as you would say Amazon's assistant ask her Tana if if you know or whatever them to construct these kind of convoluted sentences this kind of thing probably makes more sense so we'll see ah we'll see if Google Amazon as our website or whoever joins because that would that would put put it over the top it could sell some problems for apple right apple makes us air thing that nobody wants to spend money on what if I could buy these great you know great set of Amazon speakers for the same price as one of those apple things but I could use Siri on it. You never we talk about Microsoft Selling Samsung phones of Microsoft software on IT apple could sell Amazon speakers with apple stuff on it uh-huh yeah. I have a overly positive view of the future. It's kind of a star Trek and thing but you know very unusual for you very upbeat beat plus. It's possible it could just move ahead head. Let's move Ed sure sure I wanNA talk about the branding thing that happened last week that we're so of couple of users on twitter saw for night right there. I Apologize. No that's okay we can talk a little chilly in here and I thought he's a blanket and some ever going to shut up above still talking about this thing. I honestly I tried to get Bouillon or other things only when you are launched into something and I know of it's going to be solid. You guys are just for hours. I thought you I thought you'd want to go along with that one but I guess I was running. all right so let's move on. Let's move Microsoft three sixty five consumer. Is that what you want to talk about. Yes I do WanNa talk about that so last week. A couple of users on twitter said they saw overnight. They're branding on their office. Three sixty five subscriptions magically change from office re sixty five to Microsoft three sixty five we that's not something. Microsoft has announced they are planning to add some cases they and then it switched back great so what immediately I thought of is okay. They must be getting closer to doing this. Microsoft three sixty five consumer subscription because we all believe the main thing that will be in that subscription is office three sixty five and so you would think they might want to rebrand everything under under the Microsoft three sixty five label if you were going to have that subscription right you know instead of office three sixty five pro plus. You'd call it. Microsoft three sixty five per plus when I asked Microsoft. They denied this but all they said was. We have no plans to rebrand officer sixty five. I propose to make stuff three sixty five pro plus at this point right also sixty five pro blesses. A completely different offering friend told us has exactly the same things in it. Yes I know right yeah so my guess is getting closer to that subscription bundles so they're trying to get. It's not get out there and start changing the branding under the covers. Maybe they will be announcing that soon and pay next week. A low you know is part of the service announcement and they could wonder if anybody has a problem with that kind of branding change right like we're gonNA subtly dropped the office brand over time this this we have this Microsoft three sixty five offering which is a super set of that that includes other things that work it makes sense but it's also a little confusing because we're used to office but when you think about it like you mentioned office three sixty five pro plus right so it's a very specific offering it gives you whatever gives you that Kinda. It doesn't matter changing it to Microsoft is sixty five. It's it's an offering directly from Microsoft is fine. This particular one is about office productivity it involves desktop top applications and clouds cloud storage and so forth but other versions of Microsoft three sixty five will include those other things right right. windows in apprise is the the management services and so forth so I I. I have no problem with it. But what do you think on the consumer side. Do you think what else is going to be in it. I don't know what people think like normal people. They all know everyone knows. Microsoft right so this value in that I think the grant strong sales office right. That's what I'm wondering do they. I mean they must take us. It's such a generic name though right because the problem with offices you really have to say Microsoft Office so we're clear about what we're talking about in and you can stop office part. Yeah you know ultimately. Microsoft's big plan in the biggest scheme of things is everything goes under the microscope except brand and they stop having all these subbranch right that because they believe it would make more sense to give the company more of a cohesive look if everything was just branded one thing instead of all these different sub brands. Sometimes I think that works other times. I'm like I don't know who would it work. Terrible apartments remember they were renamed. Dot Net Server Server Donna Bishop steadier done that it turns out having a product star with a period is not necessarily the best. It really is not yeah. Oh yeah tell me about it. I it's awful now too because I'm looking for. I'm looking up a lot of old died net stuff these days and it's impossible it you type in dot net into a search engine. It's just doesn't know what so. Are you guys getting excited about the event yeah yeah what are we. What are we what are we. What are we see coming here so we still think I think there are going to be several news. Surface devices announced with different processors. We still think there's going to be an a qualcomm eight C X surface device. We think there's going to be an AMD surface three laptop. We think there's going to be some new. Intel surface devices but nothing with thunderbolt thunderbolt three and then there's still a very strong rumor that Microsoft is thinking about teasing projects and tourists switches the dual screen device. They're building but not announcing it. Google doing with Pixel for you know like hey look at. This can't accept one month. You can have it. I mean that's the problem with the Microsoft thing is we don't know the next twenty twenty sometime in twenty twenty there will be. I think Holland surface hub. We're GONNA play a role in this event and I think that yeah there's going to be more all up. Microsoft kind of thing which kind of speaks that Microsoft three sixty five bet incas there's you hello Mike or soft- software works pests or whatever on surface hardware a Microsoft you know at one point. I don't know if you remember this Microsoft. Christoph was starting to refer to devices as Microsoft three sixty five powered and then they totally back down from that and they're like no we can't do that. I was literally literally just wondering about that in the context of an name right and so going forward if you WANNA drop the windows name which might make sense for this New Light. Os or whatever is is there a Microsoft three sixty five name or brand or something right makes sense for that doesn't sound too ponderous those terrible names of the past that Microsoft always gets mocked for like Microsoft Three Sixty Five O. S. Yeah I mean it's it's kind of like a subscription thing. You know you check a couple of boxes as you know. I'd like a a tablet. I'd like to get the office. APPS and I'd like you to manage this thing for me. In the cloud that will be thirty seven dollars a month for the next five years the whatever whatever that Brexit just did a search on m three sixty five dot com the domain for sale. It's for sale. That's yeah yeah so I don't know so I I don't. I don't know that they're going to talk yet about light. I don't think this is the right event at all for them to get into like here's layers of the operating system and he was what we're doing with the CORO S I. I just think it's not the rain event for that. Even though we would all like to hear about it. This is where want and need don't intersect. Would they do that. Yes I know. I know that's a dumb I don. I don't think that's the right place either well. Although again Alexa listen you can make a rationalized. This is the problem with this kind of thing you could explain why it makes sense for any event right so the rationale for ignite would be this is the business audience these and Loko Le. Let's let's say simpler. Less complex easier may more easily manage devices would be attractive to the enterprise. Maybe this does make sense to talk to them about this like look we know some people are always going to need these big expensive complex powerful windows boxes but we also recognize the people getting real work done on phones or tablets. Ni- pads and so forth what if there was a thing like that that you could manage better than you can with an an IPAD or run better apps and you can with these other platforms or whatever however they saw I really I really think they should not talk about core. Os less than light until built. Write that note. I feel like they should have done this past year. Yeah well. There were rumors that was going. They were going to rape then what they couldn't really talk about Koro Esa and everything around it because they didn't have a device that was using it. I mean whole wants to use it and service hub to you want like Santoro's to be closer to serve remember. He showed up printing on a windows on arm device before they're even it wasn't true that came out great so I can't we do that again right. Well you know you know who is is. GonNa be speaking at ignite is during a blank owner game though she she's been the person who's been championing Aaron Chapel Aaron Chapel all has been the champion of windows on our and she's speaking at ignite so that means it could be windows content..

You're already could go up to one terabyte but now they'll sell you storage for an additional terabyte. If you're a an office US three sixty five subscriber consumers terabyte for office well. I mean honestly I. I bet by this time next year. I will have to buy additional storage on one drive. Yeah I'm up in the eye by just crossed the nine hundred megabyte thrush.

You know you start yacking media right right so a big part of it. It is very that's true yeah but before now a lot of people who wanted to buy additional one drive storage weren't really able to do that right and now you can buy it in increments of what is it two hundred. That sounds right. Click took to twitter kings Turner Gigs. That's an extra dollar ninety nine per month and you can go up to the one terabyte which would cost you nine hundred ninety nine per month.

If you're viewing a fine you know it depends on the pitch of the screen etcetera but let's say it's at twelve pixel chocolates. Whatever right you go up to fourteen and it's it becomes it's almost like semi bold and it looks so crispin wonderful. That doesn't just give you a little feeling remember. Oh you sound designer. I know that's that's the problem here. I I have no design elements in my entire body text. I mean I do but I just see the words. I know you guys think I'm making that up when I say that but I don't I just empty hole in your heart and that it needs to be filled with fonts. It's okay you know what just for you.

I'm GonNa try it though just as an experiment I usually set my terminals pretty big. I'm for your Code Retina eighteen eighteen right now but that's tennis screen so it also depends on the screen. I'm just going to give it a whirl of things does it. Does it relaxes the eyeball yes so which is good it. Just your phone in your heart of career. Baptism is you can enable bold fonts when you do that for people. They're like Oh my God. It's like this is the chance to is different. It's a little thing but it matters you know it's interesting because on the new iphone the setup. I they may have done this last year to the first one of the very first things you do choose the zoom.

"Just fill and chill Epson exceed your vision now. Here's two people whose vision sees farther than anyone else never exceeded never equalled old always amazing. Paulin Mary Jo but let's talk about my favorite topic. In the world dot net core three point. Oh finally finally Oh. Actually we should just mentioned real quick. Some there have been two twenty one built in the past week since we last gathered didn't mean dump added that conversation so okay just just to an end just I saw that Microsoft has released a new nineteen eighty to build. It's only fixes including fixes that came out on patch Tuesday for the shipping grizzly out yet nineteen days to make that happen even so we were fine if they really are if they really are tm in September as you would think but it remember what happened with the May update then that ten that our team I am in April so the thing we should remember what happened last year there October event where they suddenly announced haywar shipping eighteen o nine in and we you're like wait. You guys never even put that through release preview what's going on. They shipped to Fezzan. They had to pull it back. Remember that think disaster. We don't want to do that so there is a Microsoft event in one week and you no beyond some on some insider thing on my go because I got. I just thought ninety-nine came out because I got it on here but maybe insiders are I must be. How else could I have received all right well. I think if you're on a one of the windows inside cider program for business you can request nineteen ninety two now in released preview and in slow I think so. Is this the last time they're gonNA use the a year in nineteen. Oh nine they're going to be night. They're going to be twenty one from now you don't know or you just start using the codenames right. What is it the problem. Is promise they have four different ways of each one of these things right. We'll know you need like a version a number and so obviously these things can build number and that's probably the ultimate version number you know the actual build those always go round and so they make sense or whatever but the next year is going to be a disaster two thousand three is an extra we don't. I mean it's windows ten version two thousand three. I know oh but still confusion. Yep of course it's perfect. Microsoft yeah we'll see what they do. I like the idea of it's worth nineteen H. One thousand nine hundred to like that kind of naming is clear but there's a letter in there and that may be problematic matt for I feel like I did not must have signed up for right. I did not but I remember when I went to the update. It said would you go now. Yes it's it's check right now but as soon as it's done I will look. This is the cumulative update for nine hundred nine but I'm pretty sure I went to the updates and it said Oh. Would you like nineteen o nine and I said Yeah but I thought it was out now. Let Me Look I. Why would I sign up for the insider program. What kind of I don't know why not I must have been you may just not your machine out right yeah. Maybe yeah right. I kind of I kind of remember the I'm. I was sick of the insider thing I said. I don't WanNa do it anymore. That can the not. GonNa listen to me. I don't WanNa talk. Remember that the concept of the magic window which was kind of blown apart when they pulled builds back and they screwed everything up if you haven't seen this yet if you you go into settings in an update and security and then to the windows inside a program page there is a new switch there it says stop getting preview ability and what it was op this device out of fighting getting which is a terrible term that nobody understands who knows why that's an easy interface but anyway when the next major release of windows ten is installed and what that basically means is you don't have to worry about the magic window because you could enable it now and whatever that magic window does occur. You don't have to know that it's occurred. You'RE GONNA go back onto the normal windows ten update schedule. That's actually a really neat. That's a neat feature so it's like I wanNA test this version of windows but once it ships I wanNA stay on this version window. I want to be on the next version. Asia and that's a that's a really smart. That's a good that's a nice switch. That's good to know about all right. So are you there. Now I'm still thirty percent of one percent. Twelve twelve percents rebooted innocent now and went back to thirty percent what's going on. It's just working on updates dates. I almost it almost makes me. Miss the all your files or where you left them. No nothing will make you miss so let's talk. Oh Did you mention the Bluetooth thing. We'd leave that out to It's yeah. I didn't mention it explicitly. It's just a they. They're just making further improvements to that Bluetooth quicken that feature which is actually pretty cool by the way if you have a guess mostly surface peripherals but any modern bluetooth device you should be able to connect to it without going through a bunch of you know paring back and forth on each device. It's quick pair kind of thing. It's it's. It's something you it on other platforms to. It's it's kind of a neat feature. they're further streamlining that that's that was one of the the new features in last week's building. I should give a little it'll plug to Steve Gibson's neck security now because he's off to Europe. Doing you know doing a tour around his user authentication protocol squirrel and so we'll prerecorded his next Tuesday's episode and it's going to be Steve Looks for a good sync solution though one because his well his knees are a little weird because you use one driver cloudy cloud or whatever but he wanted trust no one fully encrypted opted end end of course Gibson so he I think he found a good solution anyway. That's next Tuesday if they don't come out if you don't get security nice should get that one. It's a it's an interesting episode. I'll give you a hint. He didn't pick wonder Dr Team it. That's okay pick that looked at. I'm I'M GONNA convince. You guys that dot net core three point. Oh please do please do. Here's the thing so we know that Microsoft back in two thousand ish came up with dot net and the original version dot net was supposed to be kind of cross platform but it was really just windows it does only and the dot net framework was the basis for you know things that happened since then like wind forums and WPF and the longhorns stuff and you know on to the present so with Donald core they're making it truly cross platform and this is actually key to this where we should talk about like one windows and now we talk about Windows core for with this does is it kind of extends the programming layer that used to be at the core windows to basically every kind of competing platform that there is from from mobile through Zaman to the web via. Sp Dot net and Blazer to the MAC to Windows. It's everything and that's kind kind of cool about it is it is at one core. you know idea but just expanded it. It's almost like they're finally realizing the vision of dot it was originally announced but it took them like twenty years and if you didn't watch it it's a little boring but they did a virtual conference thing where are they introduced dot net core and they had group people for Microsoft come out for each one of those parts and they built the same application again and again and again on different platforms using the same source source code base and it was kind of a small process to.

Gaming is a bigger industry than you know movie making in Hollywood. It's huge right so the problem is to date to get into this business. You had to do with Microsoft. which is you come from behind? You start making hardware. You lose a lot of money and you kind of build up. The relationships get the game. Mm Studios going developers onboard. It's it's a huge investment. obviously someone that works lost to happen. We have only service but when you can cut out the hardware are in D I mean it's it's a completely different situation so it's not surprising that all the major car cloudplayer's. ENGA- makers are going to be involved in some way as this thing switches over to service so we shall see well there. You have it. That's it. That's all there is to say. It's finally happening. Yep windows. Let's do some windows ten. Where do you got for me yeah. Let's let's I seem to remember you guys. You guys noticed this but I seem to often get into the situation where yeah I get shot for being the Messenger so in this case there is a guy who used to work for Microsoft who is turned into like a youtuber and and he has created east credit a lot of us videos about programming and whatever technology topics. I think they're kind of goofy but whatever he can do his own thing but he was part of that team. At Microsoft I got laid off twenty fourteen two thousand fifteen whatever the and he has now published a video explaining why the the quality of windows ten has been so bad over the past four years and if you can get past the kind of presentation I find it like a little painful but it's very clear that he is absolutely on the money with what has gone down with with what has happened. There which is that rather than having human beings running automated made a test they have virtual machines and they have telemetry and they just they used to have meetings every week where people would come and say can we move this build up the chain and people would explain why they could or could not support that and that just kind of you know created a a a higher quality situation than what we see today which is they ship build old and the ship of publicly to insiders of which there aren't really that many and the testing doesn't happen on the same level a lot of you know of course this. This is not anything against the insiders. It's not their fault but you know I think a lot of these people. You know you're not gonNA send in a book report unless something is catastrophic right. It's particularly annoying. Perhaps and it's hard for them to duplicate it because they don't get those massive dump files that you know. Microsoft needs to require their problems so it's just a you know it's kind of a self replicating. Hey we saved a bunch of money but whips you know I think history speaks speaks for itself. We've had three major releases a windows ten. That did not go very well at all. I saw that guy's video pop up and there's a few people who are laid off as part of that round in two thousand fourteen th that happened to Terry Meyerson and if you're I'm looking looking back at what I wrote about it. Because they the the way they explained what they did was they said instead of having dedicated aided testers program managers and development engineers are going to be taking on new responsibilities quote unquote like testing hypotheses so that they would be writing their own tests and testing against their own tests. They actually said that that's crazy and there's there's this notion in Microsoft of south hosting right where you are running the latest bill to see if they're you know dogfighting whatever you WanNa call that and a his contention. Is that that in today's Microsoft like a like a lot of people. Just don't do that anymore because that really didn't really concerned with what's going on with the client. They've got their own things. They're worried about you know right. You think he's got an ax to grind. Though I mean yeah I mean of course I was thinking that too. If I get laid off by my employer I would be very angry about Batu right okay except for one thing by the way yeah. You can't discount that aspect of it. He didn't make this when he got laid off. He made this five years later. This is the one hundred and seventeenth video he's made or something like this was not high on his priority list like I. I I think more important though is it. I look like I said I I find his style a little hard to digest but it's a you to being you. Just we understand about this generation of whatever that's fine but I don't think it's fair to discount something solely on the basis of the fact that he may like for example a thing that you just showed like I feel like he's on on the wrong side of the windows ten privacy debate for just for example but I I'm looking at this objectively. I think it's clear to me is very it clear that he's correct about what's going on with ten. You know like I said history speaks for itself. Gills as well. Mary Jo is information that corroborates what he was saying about what has happened inside of Microsoft Attorney Meyerson right so you know for good good better indifferent like the won't be cynical about it and I can be I mean you know Terry took over windows and it was like how can we save some money. You know an impact the bottom line in a positive way and unfortunately the short term thinking right and you know they've Hattie. We know teams. They come around two teams and they're like okay. You need to cut X. Percentage of your people you choose where you want to cut that was that was that stack ranking thing that they used to high. That's mostly Steve Balmer awful that was like survivor. You know get voted off anyway. I don't think they're ever going to bring dedicated hated testers back to you know. I don't know no no no. It's worth I when they I I will say when they started the windows insider program one of one of the things I really liked about it was it was part of an effort by Terry and his team to kind of reversed the secrecy based strategy of the their predecessors assessors. I thought that was an important and good thing to do. I think opening up windows development of the community is a good thing. You know generally speaking but what we're seeing happened since then of course as you know they get weird about it. It's like what we're GONNA do a lot of AB testing and so you're signing up for the specific rain you're supposed to get all the new features and whatever version windows now. You're not getting them and I think they've they've over time. Because of these changes which probably were the result of the quality is not where we wanted it you know they've kind of made it bad for everybody that's kind of always had uh-huh accumulates and so over time what seemed like a good idea and then you add something else and yes it was done for the right reason done for the right and then and this is the McDonald's principal right. Ray KROC didn't invent McDonald's to make America fat. He was solving a problem I know and he was latching onto a trend end of the day where people all of a sudden we're in their cars a lot and we need this new type restaurant. You know and the insider pro that'll be. I'm not equating the inside of over with a be city but I mean but rather with but it literally was created for the right reason and it still is a good idea. It is a good but ah you know for example one of the things I have said remember from our debates about things like windows ten home users can't delay updates. Ah You know they weren't able to do that for a long time. I had said for a long time like look. They have enough data now. They don't need to make these people guinea pigs but you know as it turns out. I mean they might have held back on not giving them that capability for Sawn because they really didn't have that data. the activity level in the incentive program was was probably not high enough to to do that but you but then you have this unfortunate situation where you're on customers. Are Your Guinea pigs literally. That's the that's the phrase we've used right. Where if my you know in the old days? Microsoft would ship version of something. It was a version of windows. It was a service pack. It was the thing had been tested to some degree and it just went out. It didn't go to little groups. It didn't go out in this kind of weird way where it's like well. We're GONNA phase it in and we're GONNA see how it goes and if it goes back we're GONNA. We're GONNA pull it back back. You know like how how inept in a way. Do you have to be to be to be so unsure of your own software that you can't do shit like us to be able to. It's kind of a weird situation. You think we making actual customers guinea pigs but when you think of all the combinations and permutations of in what version of you running what hardware and how old is the hardware. What do you have hooked up to the hardware. I don't think they can ever test everything obviously or even close close to everything. Windows has always had that millions of combinations of hardware configurations. Whatever the only thing that's really changed between now and nineteen ninety-five aside from the sheer number of machines right is now the ship new version of windows every six months.

"In great detail endlessly an endless obsessive detail. Ask New York Times said about twits and this series yeah yeah that was yeah. It was Virginia Heffernan. I'll never forget her. Just wrote twit covers technology in endless obsessive. Take on the bad thing bill. I celebrated it. That's what we do here we care. We care deeply care far too. We don't know about what but it's the Mary Jo Foley from. All about Microsoft Dot COM CD plonk Paul theroux is to her right left right you're your left her right and he is very joe even got it wrong and he's sitting right next to her he he he is the guy in charge of the Rot Dot Com T. H. U. R. O. T. T. DOT COM although his grip is losing. That's why Bill Gates. Didn't they Microsoft Gates Land. Have you been watching that. That was my next next question. What do you think they'll make going to rant here because I'm not watching. This show is terrible. Oh no we'll bill did all right. It's all it's like a hagiography. It's is like written promotional yeah if I have to listen to. His wife explained one more time like you don't understand how his brain works compartmentalize any. It's like it is it is like the continuation of the myth and it's awful they did a whole for the second episode about his partner who screwed out of fifty percent on. Microsoft up never even mentioned that you know yeah then. He said because he's he didn't get to see him at the end. get say goodbye. Who's that whole back yeah. He's screwed. Paul Allen pilot was the second in the world for a while. He should have been yeah bigger gates initials split on Microsoft with sixty four four thirty six engages favor even though the co-founded and then when Paul Allen came down with cancer he wasn't working as much and bill wanted him to give some portion awesome back as he wasn't working as hard you know this when we talk about the old Bill Gates and the new Bill Gates. This is a perfect example. The people don't know and they're going to watch this documentary and they're going to listen. It's laudable what he's doing with his money he had said very early on kids will only. GonNa get some tiny percentage. He was gonNA given the rest of it away and some philanthropic way obviously the foundation he has his incredible work doing is incredible. I mean there's there's no way to state otherwise it's incredible and obviously this three part documentary is mostly about that. I mean they tie stuff in from the past here and there but it's mostly about the new stuff and I think this is the Bill Gates that nobody you know probably knows that much about and that's fine but I cringe when they go back to the past they then they'll just gloss over how terrible they just go flying right by it. It's just it's tough when he really so this is it's on Netflix Yup so a lot of people be able to see if they won't let me ruined the ending he has not solved any of the problems yet but he is has dedicated billions and billions. It's like polio great things grace it with that yeah yeah. No it's incredible. The work is incredible but that's what honestly if you're a robber baron. That's what you should do. Well had another thing he did. Remember it well. He'd come out and said look everyone. WHO's a billionaire in the United States should give away at least is half the money he and Warren Buffett and Warren Buffett. I think we're the only two that I did not know a lot of others. They're hot marks. There were a lot that didn't let's put it that way and I give them a lot of credit for that effort as well and it's neat that him and Warren Buffet have been friends for thirty years or whatever the time from his Butt Bridge Bridge Partners Playing Bridge Warren Buffet as has now pumped a huge portion of his own personal unfortunate into this gates foundation like it's that's. That's you know that's amazing. That's neat well good. Was it on your little list good on him man now. We're GONNA talk about some of the comedians specials. I don't like Netflix which ones we should watch how `bout that we went to see Bill Burr. Obviously he'll burs great. We we went to see Tater Salad Ron White what's gone way and we had just seen his special and he did exactly the same just as the Guy Drinks Scotch onstage right. He's the only difference was he was really drunk when we on Friday only a little little drunk on TV special but like Sh- knocker like actually drunk. Oh well I mean could be an act. It wasn't foster brooks. He though it was like I was I'm trying to think of his name is from this is this is but that was you know obviously yeah but this one. He's just like to kill all night. That's amazing pretty wild pretty wild but that's not what we're here to talk about visit kids. Oh well the Bill Gates. thing I think is is Germane and probably worth watching apparently you get to watch him get dressed which was a recall that part of it easy to watch play tennis and Athletic Fellow revert my chat room said fast forward a few minutes. Miss Bill Gates getting dressed. He couldn't get dressed before. The show starts for some reason so you get dressed. Oh Oh how but let me tell you I was brain works. You come print carpet meant I can. I'm sorry we can't even say pets how smart he is. God that's how smart he is. He's a compartmentalised. There's no doubt about of listeners endure patch Tuesday by consuming your cocktail. Tuesday's show the specter. There's a set of Pitcher so jeff. Ullman emailed me today to say that at work this month they endured our our monthly patch. Tuesday tradition by making my wife's cocktail the patch Tuesday that is so and they look good yeah. They used some good maple syrup. it's like Maple Syrup. Syrup is what that's supposed to be been barreled Maple Syrup. That is the hope that it doesn't look like they did the egg white bit although maybe they did maybe. I'm just not seeing probably equates in the back there right down the measuring cup seeing it pretty and they're they are barely able to stand the woman her. I can't wait till tomorrow. I comment on the snack. Portion here live up. I think think to the drink portion right but aren't those like olives. Those these are two Totino's pizza bites. I believe Oh they do have cashews. This is a boomerang so that's good. What are those things. No those are apple rings. I think it looks like something it doesn't is. It look good. It doesn't look good in the lower left corner. Let's talk about that. Is That caramelized bananas. I'm sorry we shouldn't we shouldn't mock now. It's interesting. I mean I'm just fascinated. They did this by the way I mean. It's honestly it's a it's. It's an excellent cocktail. I can't wait to have won over. I'm going to be lost in any more about their. Maybe it will make them next week. When you're here so I wanted to say Jeff works in Campbell California near the Prune Yard which is very poorly named shopping center in in Silicon Valley the Prune Yard but they named the premier because before silicon valley was Silicon Valley it was a it was prune orchards as far as the I could see and so he's actually work where he stands right now. Where the Prune trees I always thought you grew plums and then dried them apparently groom sprints. I've actually grow these rank a little. I don't know maybe they maybe they're special. Plums made for prunes well well. There's Italian Prune Plums. Have you ever had those yes. They always say it was the prune orchards is how they describe it and of course the beautiful because he left the location information in his photo. Hey so we know where you work Jeff. That's great. Thank you for drinking the drink good stuff. It ain't cool eight. Micro looks likely that's how you you gotTA throw. It's just say Oh yeah so. Let's talk a little bit about I saw this. I don't know what it is. Project X cloud. What is that I bet Mary Jo Foley could tell us I can actually this is the game streaming service for Microsoft. I get I guess Paul Iraq could probably tell us the he's drinking at runs added. That's why it's Azure. The only reason I care about this in the least is this is the new big workload on Azure. It's Microsoft's going to stream games to multi devices starting with android What would that's how you lead on the xbox story. It's GonNa Workload on Azure. That's your version of the story morning care and that's the only reason Microsoft cares by by the way Oh man. It's an enterprise company. I know they do drive. That's taken further. It opened the window so the sun comes in the end the me pro so it's exciting because this is finally starting to happen. I was looking when when we first were writing about this a couple years ago right when they started teasing it originally last fall. They said it's starting. We're starting. He's tested internally. It's running. Some of it is running in our quincy. Washington data centers already so yeah here comes. That's all you need to no no. That's not all this a little bit more first so you can sign up now for the Public Beta which will start in October Tober. The first version of the first release will be android only meaning in obviously need an android phone too weird really yeah. I mean eventually. It's GonNa GonNa be obviously completely. Heterogeneous rights can different device types. and I think this is probably tested with whatever you know. You have to have some kind of clients offer to make this happen. I assume you'll use it usually with a xbox controller over Bluetooth and they're picking people so you fill you fill relatively short firm. It's basically name email address. What kind of phone do you have. What's your mobile service and they'll get back to you. You know so when I signed up with the one plus yeah you definitely should definitely because I have an android phone so I could. I knew someday Mary Join No. We're going to get you on Xbox I could. I could like clock latency levels like and do some big things like that if you'll like you. Don't you just not really coming at this from the right direction. Okay I know their games too but who cares about those I care about the service right actually Microsoft doing this if not to show off the Pasher of the excellent Asher Azer they're doing it for Azure. Guys well the power of the XBOX service which yes does run on I'll actually I'll talk a little bit. Why about why why they're doing this a little bit later. Maybe let me think about that yet because we have an xbox thing coming up at the end as usual and it it what does ties into is just you know how the business has has done historically and why this will make so much more sense for Microsoft when the xbox business essentially as a service and not reliant reliance on hardware sales right and I can throw in a couple of codenames by the way this isn't Microsoft's first game streaming Rodeo remember project Rio view that was a game streaming service. They attempted and showed off. I think at one of the company meetings and then there was Arcadia another time when they were showing NFL game streaming service neither ever came to market well. I'm not sure I knew about either one of those Arcadia..

"WW 2019 nineteen is in the books and joining us to talk about it is John Gruber from daring fireball and host of the talk show. Welcome to the show. John. Meghan, so you write that for a long stretch. WW DC felt largely like an IS developer conference. But last week felt like w w DC should be what it should be an apple developer conference. Tell us what you mean by that. Well, I just think I mean I it goes back to the. History of the iphone really that, you know, even in two thousand seven when the original iphone was going to ship. There was a press release apple issued that just said, hey, we were going to ship new version of MAC, OS ten I forget what version it was twelve years ago. But hey, we pulled up a bunch of engineers. We had to put him on the iphone, it's our top priority. Mac OS ten whatever it was is going to be late. And you know, it's shipped in November instead of June. But ever since I it really has seemed like for as much money as apple has an as big a company as they are they they've been it's been difficult for them to walk into gum at the same time as the, the phrase that's been used houses of times. And I really thought last week at w this was the first deputy where it really felt like all of the major platforms specially to me MAC OS in combination with. IOS but watch OS and TV OS to there. They all moved forward in lockstep. The swift, you, I, which is to me, long-term the biggest announcement that they had last week for developers, it, it's launching it on all of these platforms at the same time you can use with you. I on the MAC I o s watch OS, TBO, S all at once. And that's just not how apple has debuted things in the last since they've become a multi-platform company usually it comes out, I for one of the platforms, usually, I o s and then in years later trickles down to the other platforms, and I really feel like they've got the ball rolling on keeping everything moving forward in lockstep. So what has been the catalyst than to drive them to be able to do that?.
