"Smartphone and its new foldable phone version Z fold to its hoping to make up ground against Apple and China's Weiwei Technologies. That was lost in a Corona virus slump. I'm Joan Doniger Bloomberg Radio. Tony Herman Hall, Texas When it comes to those restaurants and bars that failed at latest sweep by the county, they issued no fines for the businesses that didn't comply. If there are no finds, many just will not comply, and I think he's right. It's one thing to go through the first time around. Here's your warning. And then from this point forward, we come back and we see that you're not doing what you're supposed to. Here come the fines. I have no problem with that one. Well, and I think I think the warning is fine, depending on what the violation is. Sometimes a violation is bad enough that it should be more than just a warning. I would agree with that. When when I'm looking at the listings of different things. 55 Mask violations took place where people weren't wearing them correctly. Then you have seven violations involving the occupancy limit where they were above the 25% according to the story here in the Post Gazette. The one that really stands out is the double door saloon. Ah, we're, um they had more than one violation. And tables were weren't spaced apart. Bar sitting was open, No customers or bartenders wearing mask. Apparently, there was a sign there was nobody doing anything. When it comes to that. Everyone smoking at the bar, including the waitress, you gotta wonder. They could have easily find for a whole host of different reasons. Besides, just to covet 19 issues. You put all that together? That's more than a warning. You had no intention of of following them right now. You know, intense. Yeah, that's like having a speed limit of 65 you're going 90. I don't know how you give somebody a warning on that one. We'll be safe. If you do, like, 10 15 miles an hour. Maybe you give the warning but not when you're going 90. Yeah, you had no intention of following the rules. Susie Westwood welcomed the Katy K radio. Hey. Oh, yeah, Well, what's on your mind? Cuz I was flying in love out again. They hate was class have been there, but We have to separate the couples, you know, you know, like it's killing me. You know, I just I want to go back to work, and I we confided with all the rules regulations choking women, or if I itself And I just don't think it's fair that we have to suffer because of everything. Yeah, well, that's the argument. They're making the argument their making. And and when you describe where you work, and you describe the scenario, I get it. I get the concern. I do. I know it's really hard to. You know now that there are employment, you know, $600 has run out. It's going to be part of it. Live right now. Right? Right, Susie. Thank you very much for calling in to appreciate it one more before traffic. Laurie in Washington. Welcome to Katie Radio. Hey, Good afternoon. I just had a question Lynn had mentioned earlier when she was talking about the PPP loan that a lot of them in minority owned businesses didn't qualify. P. P Tour because of the criteria, and I think then you asked me what was the criteria? Why didn't qualify, and all she said was they were too small, just kind of curious. He only part that I know Yeah, that's the only that's the only reason that I've been told I say Okay, because I know my son has a small business and he doesn't have any employees. He's an independent contractor. He qualified, so I'm just curious. You know what the reason was? Yeah, That's the only thing that I know. I'll be honest. It's not as if I own a business or or I. I just know that that's what I've been told by. Actually, several banks and several business owners told me that Because of their size and I don't know if it has to do with volume of business. I I'll be honest, I don't know. I just know that many of the smaller businesses told me they didn't qualify. Laurie. Thank you very much. 12 55. Let's get traffic on the fives.

The US government is considering a TikTok ban
"TIKTOK has a history in Congress now. Josh Holly has basically been the main guy out to get to talk, but okay, so for the past year year and a half Josh Holly has had some hearings. He's invited to talk to testify, and then he's done these like wrestling style like hyper wheels on twitter, where he just like shows like an empty tick tock chair and he's like. Where are they and it's like we're guitar music album. Is Our personal information being made less secure by big tech, because of their partnerships with some of these questionable receive. At least. This has happened. We've been waiting all this kind of happened when Mike pompeo like randomly one night on Fox, news. It's like yeah. We're thinking about banning TIKTOK. And that's basically all he said, and then, of course, everyone's like what is happening, so the government can't really do a want to ban tiktok addy. Our colleague here on the policy dusted a wonderful story talking about all the ways that they could kind of get around. Banning them, but the one thing the government can do is banned other people in government from using. On their devices so. This week the House of A Josh Holly Bill that would ban federal employees from using Tiktok on their devices, and then just yesterday earlier this week. It made it through the Senate committee, so all it needs now is vote on the Senate floor to be approved signature and Tiktok. His banned from Federal Devices Military Tiktok is not a small community. No, it's huge. It's huge. It's huge I watch a lot of fighter jets land on aircraft carriers. Somebody took a very bad dad. TIKTOK I'll go. Is Very different from mine, so federal employees banned from using it. Is there any further motion like? Their moves right. You could like you can say it's a Chinese company. We don't want them like. We did it to Weiwei right, but we. We basically banned companies from buying equipment. How would you? How would you do that with Tiktok? We have this problem all the time. With like what regulator deals with tech, no one has any idea or they want a piece of it, and then they fight over it, and it's a nightmare, so that's part of the problem. We don't have in federal agency that really organizes around Blake Tech Regulation at all, so it's not like you can just go knocking on the. The door. It'd be like excuse me. Chairman Simon's please ban. Tiktok you can't do that so in the same way that the FCC jeep pie can be like no money goes to while away and then here's some money to dig it up and get it out of your system like we don't have the infrastructure for that and I think that's primarily the biggest problem here I mean. There's a couple of things that you could do with like foreign, Investment Sifi's. Sifi's stuff. It's all incredibly Wonky, but it's an incredibly difficult, if not impossible to just ban an APP, and that would have to do with like talking to apple and Google and APP stores and having you know what I mean having to com- completely direct what how they operate in some way. We just got done with a huge discussion about how apple has monopoly on after being on the iphone Google doesn't on Android, but they might may as well for. For most intensive purposes, especially here in the US, so if they can strong-arm apple and Google just pulling them off the APP store. That like it's pretty close I mean they're like Donald. Trump is like one iphone tariffs right away right? I mean but like I. Don't know if anyone is gonNA. Pull it off now, Casey. One thing that strikes me is even on my extremely lame Dad Tiktok I see so many creator saying is getting banned following instagram. It's a trend all over the place, and obviously trump and sort of the republican side of the the world are like Tiktok Chinese. We hate it. trumpet is I, think particularly pissed because of the rally narrative run TIKTOK that's Russell singles last week. Also delivers a lot of information to people in young voters in particular in Opaque Algorithm feed like that. It feels like yours zone has bubbled up beyond just a bunch of noise for you. Yeah, I mean like this is a Ben Thompson. Point which is that China has been in an information war with the United States for twenty years, and Americans have just pretended. It doesn't exist right like the point makes over, and over again is China started this fight? A social networks are not allowed to operate in China, and so the fact that. Albert Mickley based feed that is totally opaque. That is operating insider. Reporters should raise at least some national security concerns right like the kind of. Threat you worry about. Is You know what if the Communist Party decides that? It just wants to push a lot of pro-trump propaganda in the run-up to the election. You know it just because it would. It would so some chaos, and it would benefit them regardless of how likely you think that is to happen. The fact is that it could happen and. Should the the country have some sort of response to that? How should think about that? And you can take different views on it but I do think the thinking about what Tiktok is and how it could be used has been unsophisticated because as with every social product when it first got started. We all look at it and we think this is fun. This is a toy. Nothing bad could ever come from teenagers doing dances. And fast forward to the two thousand sixteen election has no one ever watched footloose I mean come on yeah. Look what happened. What state will allow dancing in that town? Lot of people think happy story I. Don't think that that is a movie about how town was ruined through dancing.

"I don't really know anyone who does that. Everyone everyone every artists I know entered it. Out is somehow making some sort of reference to either their country or the landscape for for the myths of you know. It's all that those kind of themes. It's potent aspect of it makes me think that and ultimately painting still providing you with a sort of an amazingly rich resource and there are some painters who they feel they have to be painters. Some of them are very great painters but the actual process of making the work somehow. He's not an enjoyable on because it's kind of fraud. I'm intrigued about your own feeling about being in the studio making work in that in that way well I never find. I didn't particularly easy and the making of a body of work as always quite fraught because I always feel like I have to invent a way to do it in a way to to complete it though to bring it whatever its completion completion whatever he decides completion. I'm very easily distracted. Hours have been so it's it's always other things to do so. I've never been one of these painters like in the studio like every single day I do of course for periods of time like you know six months at a time I will be but then also slow down after after I finish SOM work so it's not like I have that I don't know I don't have guilt about not going into the studio and tell me how much of that this. How Much Do you feel the painting process happens in the head while you're away from the studio as much as as it happens there with the with brushing hand. Maybe you can cut a kid yourself that it does but in a way it has to be there has aspen interaction ready the has to be something to react against all sorts of ideas for things but until you actually start them and start gauging the good ideas about ideas movement to and thank you so much all right good.

Pizza Toy has showed of new paintings at the Michael. Verna gallery dog has lived a peripatetic life was born in Edinburgh in Nineteen fifty-nine live briefly and Trinidad it added child but grew up mostly in Canada. He studied art in London. I in the late seventies and early eighties and then at the end of that decade soon afterwards he gained widespread spread a claim based in London throughout the nineteen ninety s he took up an artist residency in Trinidad in two thousand and eventually moved to the Caribbean island in two thousand and two now he's he's base between there and New York and Michael Verner Exhibition Reflects Trinidad's enduring influence on his work. I went to the gallery to meet him piece of before we start talking about. This show looked to about show that was here in the same gallery a few years ago which is of your early work am m because it seems to me that as I'm looking at your current work that show of early what might have affected the way you thought about your work in in general. I think it's fair. and I think it was important for me to show the earlier. you know. I came to London as late teen and ended up at school. I had three three years at Saint Martin and then I would say about three years after that where I made work. It was in a similar vein and I don't know it's I. I was embarrassed about it for many years and but not embarrassed that I wanted to just two story sadly I did destroy some things that I regret having having destroyed but I guess as I got older I was able to look back on it and see that it was from a time and was probably something I never would be able do again and the way that sort of inspiration came interests you know the quickness from seeing something and then sort of making something referencing it or being inspired spire and I think that you're right that this exhibition and the last few and then even even going back to the film poster things I was doing in Trinidad We're kind of very much kind of inspired by reminding myself. I could could be a bit more open. That's interesting so when you say more open you mean more open to different painting the influences different forms of imagery well just different ways of life more direct ways of making really and more not not to be so embarrassed about sort of cruder aspects of the way that you know that I draw naturally or or I paint and I think the early work was laughs. Chiefs less self conscious. Maybe than some of the work that I made in the late eighties early nineties mid nineties when you say self conscious. What do you mean well. I think that when I return to college as a thirty one year old you know things have really changed in the art world. Even though I was not part it has all the very very fringes I think the early work as I said I mean I just was obsolete. We know part of the art world and not any really any interested. They're really I mean yes. I love looking at paintings but I wasn't really actively look at work that in the commercial galleries because there wasn't that much that interested me really so I think that the work I made in those days be fair to say that I made for my own audience which was an audience of friends and fellow painters and and influence came from I wouldn't say that unlike the basis but you know different places than what the mainstream remark world were looking at. I mean not totally you know I I did have respect for some of the artists that were showing of of Mike Generation not in this country because none did but in the US for instance but then I think that when I return turn to college in the early nineties late eighties early nineties things at very much change and I think that essentially you kind of felt yet to take a position and I think I did take a position. I took a position that was very sort of anti what I was seeing in galleries anti the sort of the machine made anti the sort of workshop made and anti the sort of conceptual perceptual really it was more deeper into into the realms of folk art I guess or the homely uh-huh and and the the crude and deliberately sort of engaged with pages from the past that in a way that's kind of aesthetic in their work is a fitting then start talking about the words in this show because I it's feels to me looking at it that you've set yourself some difficult compositional challenges in terms of your way to your bringing materials together in that material comes from resources from other art from your memories and from photographs. Can you tell me something about buying process. How organic is how. How much is is it a process where you bringing things in kind of ood way and how much of it is a kind of actually all done very much in the moment in the this deviant was away? It's always about trying to find a way to to get to a place that yes could could be remembered from experience or from the even even in the way that a photograph can in in a way sort of like jolt a memory and remind one of of of something or a person or a place and and then also the reaction my reaction against the photographic really as much as I find it important It's always always kind of a tool for me. I really not interested in making paintings that you know like look like photographs ready. so it's a combination of different methods that you know come about to make to make painting. We have a painting near US where we sit in this in this back room of Michael Vana gallery which features a Beta and this is a figure that appearing repeatedly in the work look into paintings in this show in one in the last show that was here and it's and it's based on a photograph of Robert Mitchum. Can you tell me about how this came into your thinking and in a sense what would it represents work yeah well. I was always intrigued by the fact that Robert Mitch of its spent time turn it and he'd be there for I think ten months he'd made two feature films apparently spent ten months there but it's very difficult to find out or read about what he kind of got up to other than make these two films. There's there's very little sort of this fragile written about it if if any really and yet when he arrives back in America after spending ten months and Trinidad he releases a record of Clip Zog's and although not aw sort of parody. It's taboo record. It's actually it's got a few quite interesting versions of classics It was obviously very fashionable at that point in time. I mean you know the biggest selling album of all time was Harry. Belafonte tastings clip so so a lot of people wrote on the back of that kind of pre rock and roll so I was always intrigued by this commitment Trinidad and so I googled Robert Mitchum Trinidad and this pitcher came up on online and of course the picture was not from when he was in Trinidad for money was I think a late teenager somewhere like coney island and he's probably before an actor. He's like almost thirty years before he went to Trinidad so he's a much more youthful mention but I thought the POS was incredible sort of archetypal there was the hands. I thought were really interesting like the way he's kind of holding his hands. Obviously posing for photographs seems a little bit of nervous the face. I don't know I just found I found it. It was a it was an interesting model for me to us as as a male figure of of a bay there's obviously a tradition of bathing paintings going way way back and I was influenced in in my case by paintings made by Marsden Hartley of Bay. There's on on the main beaches and they're kind of monumental and awkward and you know sort of are they arrived. I I mean of erotic for him obviously but maybe not so erotic for us but you know the the intention you can see his intention than that's important. Horton I think and then going back to the the music can sort of you know this this this man arriving in Trinidad and and making an album has to be said superficially based on one of the Great Trinidad Art Forms which is clipped so which has got such a deep history and it goes all the way back until the influencing clips are as a whole other story and lyrically and everything in a way it's pure appropriation and I kind of thought of this as a kind of maybe a sort of a kind.

Is that true I. I had a parting Kamaratunga by Sandra. My partner has been there for over a month and my sidebar a happy for his news school study. I traveled from Cambridge to this morning. It takes about an hour. It's very coming in what made you want to come to this day in the UK. We're not in the most stable of times at the moment I- electrical and like to be in the area which she's not a various not very settled on. I think it's not an argument a lot of interesting discussions and of course back back in Hong Kong things have got much worse escalated this weekend live ammunition being used. Do you still have a film crew filming their crew being filmed there for past hundred days underwear documentary team the whole moment on the interview a lot of young people to whole who they are why they have to take this day a station which is very very bad very harsh.

CETERA central garment is a very most arrogant -Tarian Society. They just lessons getting rotten. They may land slanted over at so and so you feel I think you feel it's your responsibility as an artist as I way way to bear witness listen to keep communicating and keep this vigilance there because perhaps other countries and other powers that be ignoring this situation in yes after several reasons because I come from China and now what they are worried about is is Israel. You know I gotTa disappeared appeared in China and mom would never know where it's no lawyer. I would be under very severe on type of it. Is Kinda. Keep Kidnapping kidnapping by the state so this kind of happens in China. Mary common the lawyers disappear. You know the journalists citizens here so I can see the real. It's not you know fantasy fantasy so that's why I have support for Hong Kong pupil because I I think we share the Simkin ideology geology defend menus so your vigilance is starting right across from the film crews and the Amazon to the film crews in Hong Kong and and continuing also your work with refugees as well yeah may have off three films about refugees the Tour de he come onto one is on the way and I'm still in post production on the meters the film my Mom Mexico disappearance of the students soot Israeli students disappeared in five years about on still this state impunity and day in a row can be solved in Mexico so all those issues I relate to ordinary people's daily life and and general social condition do you feel are could be doing more to to help you. Will you are very much vigilant across all these different aspects of our troubled times. Do feel artists should be doing more to communicate and do more to be vigilant as well. We're we're we're just about to launch an enormous art fair across London. It all seems very very kind of inappropriate way to be responding to what's going on in the world around. I think the heart has been very glamorous and selling high prices and you know come to decorate our culture or Dame's James and the galleries but same times really falling our responsibility of the towards society aren't supposed to be conscious of the society's supposed to have our imagination of future and I think in that sense is I think the world really not doing sow art can do much more it should be one shooter it flags out or Nevada arm state of mind our consciousness and also about the hope. Let's hope way thank you very much. Thank you saw.
Is Huawei's Worst Google Nightmare Coming True?
"Love these tech stories where it seems to be almost like a soap opera or reality show so well. Let's go back to the reality show of alway the P thirty and P thirty phones that they released recently and the ongoing trade a dispute that forced google to sever their relationships with Wa wa Wa way was stuck in a certain watercraft without a certain implement because what good is an android phone that has no access to the Google play store glee services only Jammie. I think Jami doesn't have Google play services and that one is the only one that's but anyway but there's a reason why you don't see a lot of phones on on the subway yeah you don't see any of the US exactly okay so that the trade ban came into effect in May and the EP thirty in the P thirty pro where the first way phones to be released after that ban and we're all prepared to feel real sorry for Weiwei until Oh gee. There's there's this Chinese APP called L. Z. Play that Gosh almost immediately after the release of these two phones that allows the installation of official official Google apps including the all important Google playstore like wow. I don't know who created this miraculous. L Z play APP but they must have some mad add skill as those of us who were cognizant in the late eighties to early nineties might have put it well more power to you. How wonderful well? Well okay. There's there's an update on that security researcher. John Woo wrote a medium boasts about his investigation into the APP because as a security expert it occurred to him that Gosh these are kind of like important low level APPS. I wonder how they met this APP minister work. He himself wrote the T. L. Semi Colon are are on this. I'm quoting him here the current widespread method to install google services on newly released while devices relies on undocumented Weiwei specific acidic. MD M. A. P. is although this quote back door. Unquote requires user interaction to be enabled the installer APP which is signed with a special certificate from Wa Wa is granted privileges nowhere to be found on standard android systems so what this cuts down to is that why phones have special android permissions that include the ability to install super super level system level APPS two of those permissions missions that they've created are completely and totally undocumented anywhere which is definitely on the superlatives side of sketchy sketchy so demonstrating that if you want to get things done one of the most wonderful ways to do it is to simply create a medium post was to how many of our stories over the past couple years that were really really important interesting started with so and so wrote a medium post with their experiences and or investigations so the follow up was pretty quick well first of all whatever website that was hosting the L Z play APP was taken offline alway revoked the certificates that allow it to work to sort of cover tracks but I guess it didn't appease anybody because if you're not familiar with safety fifty nine this is Google's own tool and own process that will certify that a phone that runs android is safe and secure and hasn't been tampered with meaning that you can trust trust to run APPS on it and know that they're probably they're excuse me according to safety net at the test it has nothing weird about it that might result in like your credit card information being stolen or the hardens a secure area of the hardware being accessed by something that's not secure and well you know now how the Pe- thirty and the P thirty pro are now fail the safety net test so Google's tool no longer will certify to apps that run on the phone with this is a trustworthy APP with the immediate fallout that Google pay no longer works and any other APP that asks asks the Android android system. Hey has this phone. Can you tell me that this phone has not been tampered with and can trust it with this thing that I'm telling the user should be really really secure now. ANDROID android itself will say no. You really shouldn't do you. Should you should trust a hamburger that you found on the sidewalk on package more than you should trust this this phone right now share assessment I do. I do have to know so last night are all about android we had Michelle Rahman from exceed developers on and they had written about this back door and it's actually like quite it's quite involved to try and get it down. Ah installed on a walkway device but it's just like an interesting. I don't know to me it. Just it like you said earlier. It feels like it's just political theater at this point that and it's also it's also just indicative the time where we are living in this very league binary operating system mobile operating system world where you just have either ore and I can understand and why people would be freaking out over way not having access to the Google play store and Google apps but it just this doesn't feel like the way to do it folks you know and the thing is those alway phones have that back door right because there's those phones are sold in markets where Google is is company Non Gratis. I'm thinking Russia and China and Russia has its own like APP store sort of situation I think it's yen decks and China has its own and so I think that's why they were able to kind of make this happen but the way it all sounds is so sketchy and shady and I and I actually feel I mean you never should feel completely bad for like a giant corporation because again they'll oh yeah they don't corporations are not people people. All people are but we know the Supreme Court sometimes but I also kind of feel bad because this narrative has been in the press since Twani any way before twenty twelve when there was that actual security issue found with wall way not smartphones. I think it was like wow way. Conferencing devices were like a part of this and so it's it's kind of a thing and it just it yeah it just kind China it sucks or Wa but also don't don't use a backdoor to install things 'cause that's super unsafe no matter how badly when it use a phone in a certain country Oh my God just just don't do that. That's that's why side loading one of the things that I most appreciate about android the fact that you can go deep into settings and flip a switch to side low dance from that aren't necessarily that aren't signed by the Google play store because I feel as though if you've spent either two hundred dollars or twelve hundred dollars on the phone you own the phone and you can do whatever you want with it. Yeah however that's Oh that is just like that's like hanging out a welcome mat for every bad thing that can happen as a result of open owning phone but if you're going to be that if you're going to be that bold shall we say absolutely it is it does we should say it does look as though this was th there's nothing super suspicious about this Weiwei's intentions while this is something that wow a deaf back back door that while away from evidence clearly put in themselves to facilitate the installation of Google services however it does appear as though that was their sole intent content with us that it wasn't a back door that could then be exploited by other governments or whatever not that it couldn't be but that was it and it is still kind of one of the reasons why why we became so open to scrutiny and speculation is that we don't know for sure who owns it and it's supposedly owned by this one person however who owns the majority of the stock however once you start going one or two layers deep deep you see get to the point where okay we don't know who owns while way so a given yeah so I do. I do think that the trade wars that are going on are not good at all. I don't think that they're rationally founded. I do believe that industrial espionage is a real a threat. I also believe that if a government owned telecommunications hardware company wanted to take advantage of the fact that the world was basing a five there five did you network on hardware built by a company based in their country that they would coerce or ask the this company say Yeah we want you you just put this little component inside all of your five G. Hardware and it looks like a resistor but it's not a resistor that is definitely something to be. What for? I don't believe that the the the machinations that are pursuing this trade war are towards the our wealth out or designed to do the effect is best for people at just goes to show. We're plugging you know the podcast to we were talking about this on macrey yesterday. That's just so much uncertainty about the future than there are a lot of companies apple included Google included that they're part of their solution to a lot of these problems. Does let's wait to see if there's a new president next year because Republican or Democratic everything could change and a lot of horrific problems looms for tech businesses could go away if there is a different president in that
Microsoft's most daring Surface ever might be unveiled this week
"We do have a lot to talk about obviously to more. You're here here for the surface of the Microsoft hardware of and not this not a surface event. It's a Microsoft hardware wording here obviously a lot of surface news coming along so I want to kind kind of stick to that and actually at the show I'll give a little review of my iphone eleven pro Max that I've here for about a week and a half now so it's a lot of pros and cons say that there's a lot of nothing but good news from US Review Sandra curious. I'm there's some there's a handful of things not all the sickness. That's making your negative. The sickness made me extremely you like it didn't prevent me from getting a flu supposedly Rowsley Apple Devices prevent illness and injury. You know what that's what I thought but only if I had the air pods any Apple Watch I would have been prevented all illnesses so tim. I'm Cook told me so Paul. What do you want to begin with. This event actually let me let me begin at the end because this is leaking all of the twitter's right now so so as I had speculated for actually many weeks in a row and windows weekly Microsoft is GonNa because I base this on the timing of the event. You may recall that in the spring. They suddenly started testing windows ten version twenty one. The Virgin is not coming until next year. That was very confusing. They've never done anything like that before. It's a Lotta time right yeah and and given that and the fact that such and Adela was coming to this event. I I've been speculating that maybe this'll be the time that they unveil what's going on. Software wise in that release because it must be the basis of this light. Os or whatever we're calling this thing that we've been talking about for a long time and now what has leaked is that Microsoft will announce a new version of windows ten wins ten acts that will ship late next year on new dual screen in folding screen devices does ten x ten ten. Well Yeah right right so this is the first this. Is this the first name. I guess official name change absorb trailer for Windows ten. No no no no so. This is just a new version so we have windows ten home. We have pro enterprise. We have been pro. workstations nations got it so ten. X is another skew. It's and it will only be provided on those devices. It's not something well. I should say I I actually don't know a lot about it right now so I should say I don't you know there's no way that someone with windows ten. homer pro is ever going to be able to update to this or upgrade or whatever it's not a you know. It's like a side hi thanks so it's just another skew in its very specifically for those kinds of devices and so we'll see what else you know. They'll talk about it. they'll show show off a prototype apparently some people upset of what Mary Jo Foley Centaurus and you know look we know Dell and Lynn Ovo have both talked about. I don't know if was falling deal screen devices or one of the one of both whatever those are the number one in three three P. C. makers in the world. Presumably everyone in the top five will announce such a device may be. We'll see one of those Lenovo last year was very or the subsisiary. Actually was very cagey when they said you know it's. GonNa be running windows but they didn't say which version obviously it's going to be this version so yeah that's exciting. I suspect I'm just again. I'm just guessing based on timing that twenty one that version of windows ten we've been testing forever must have the plumbing wing necessary to support those devices and that will actually see the the real world support for it in two thousand eight to which would be a minor upgrade that will ship at this time next year so so that's that's the big news it's kind of like their one more thing you know type announcement right because obviously the focus tomorrow is going to be on the stuff like here's the new stuff that we're. GonNa ship very soon for this holiday season the windows ten x stuff for next year time period but I think they're just prepping the user base really just for the future right so this this is coming windows those who support folding until screen devices. I find it very interesting considering d think they'll show some some sort of you know demo on a rendered device. I have no idea yeah I'm curious about that. I I yeah I'm curious. See I'm curious to see if usually at these events. You don't see you know deller. Lenovo already other company right so I don't know if they're going to either not. I don't know if we're actually going to see their devices in person or anything like that. I don't that I have no idea that demo is for those folding devices. I I know that I know that it's hot now because it's new but coote. Who is it marketed to WHO I remember. It's almost like when the note I came out right the Samsung note and everybody said the way too big for the regular consumer. WHO's this poor. Who needs the phone to be that big and in reality slowly? Every single phone became that Obagi now there's nothing unique about it in that sense but you know right now who sat foldable device for actually the that thing thing that you just mentioned is probably a good comparison because it well okay. I guess it doesn't actually replace another device. I suppose in some ways the died so for a lot of people a FAB type form factor means. They don't have to have a tablet and a phone right so they have this thing. That's kind of inbetween in a does both things well. You can watch movies and read. It's like a big enough screen. I think that this new device type folding a dual screen devices kind of fall into the same type of category where in in this case what you might be preventing yourself or not having to carry any Moore's laptop right that this thing will will be a phone or a small tablet form factor to begin with and it's easy to carry but when you need the bigger screen you can kind of open up. It's it's sort of the same value proposition gas as you know a folding smartphone right. It's when you need it. You know you get the bigger screen and so I'm I'm curious to see how Microsoft presented that I mean the surface team has proven itself to be very averse to leading edge technology right. They still don't support thunderbolt three for some reason so what what would make them jump on the bandwagon with this kind of thing they must have some pragmatic rationale for it. They don't tend to just do things to kind of nuts not so part of it is probably pressure from PC makers you know in the same way that Samsung and Weiwei and whatever must have gone to go and say hey guys. This is the new trend you've got support this android they did even though they don't today provide their own folding vice of any kind and they don't seem to be making one. Microsoft in this case is making one so very interesting because we'll say very. It's very interesting considering. This is something that we've been I berth for all that changes a lot doesn't and this was probably one of the first major topics we discuss when you and I started started doing podcasts courier was a foldable windows based device or Microsoft device that a lot of people were excited for in two thousand nine or two thousand and two thousand ten right when I think he mark thousand career exact timing yeah I mean we go back to it because it kind reminds me of this because we we had the scene discussion where who is marketed to US vice four and can't catch catch on. I'm not convinced that why and Samsung are going to have a la- major success with their foldable devices with their foldable yeah. Maybe it's something that happens over time I the the note was immediately successful in it triggered a a real change in the industry. Even apple eventually jumped on board. Obviously the the folding thing it's GonNa take a while but part of the reason is just the reliability issues right. You're seeing problems with their redesigned designed. Samsung Galaxy fold and so it's GonNa take a little a little take a little while. I do think that because. PC's are bigger and bulkier devices compared to phones that the reliability issues have a chance of not being a serious and there are some productivity arguments. You could make around in having a bigger screen at your disposal so we'll see. I mean some of it's going to be hokey. It may not you know the whole thing may not fly. I don't personally other than the whole yeah. It's cool the thing I mean I. I don't personally see a use case for it. So a lot of people said that about like we said the note. I remember remember when I when I think jokes holding like an ipad up to like I had one sent me by. At and T. to review and I loved it. I praise the device I I thought the more battery life and that thing remember Android at that point wasn't as refined as as it is now at all bit rot was way worse than it was today. These things were were the soft software wasn't as sophisticated as it was on the iphone at that time so I love the phone and I gave it a praising a great review view where the battery life was a necessity and other other manufacturers should catch onto this large display and
Huawei Considering Licensing All of Its 5G Patents in Effort to Avoid Ban in the West
"In November the ban that prevents the Chinese tech giant Hallway from doing business with US companies is set to go into effect Australia too has bandits networks from using equipment and Britain is still considering a the decision but now the chief executive of way has suggested a way in which the company could maintain a presence in western markets by selling a one time licensing deal well the biot- would get unlimited access to always current five G. Payton's and tech that would be a way to address security concerns says the company though it has always denied claims is that it helps the Chinese government spy on uses telecom systems well for more on this. I'm joined by Professor Steve Tongue. WHO's director of the China Institute at Thermos here in London Steve Thanks for joining us. What exactly is the proposal by the way but the proposal was like what you said while wage would give gave a one off licensed tool whoever wants to buy the license at a very substantial prize so does that company it should be able in theory to compete against walkway on five G. and what does the offer really mean well. It means something that is very very clever for why because hallway is doing something that no high tech company has ever done giving is at the moment Mond state of the art technologies to a potential compete competitors to compete cells so a pretty strong position globally in publicity terms and if nobody buys it they still enjoyed that advantage and reality is that very few company will seriously considered by and and that's presumably because it doesn't address the intelligence laws in place in China and that's obviously a real problem for western phones one consideration. I think another consideration is quite simply that the advantage that while way has in the competition terms are two which will not be available wolf full sail want is the very low cost of manufacturing in China which publicly been benefits come stay subsidy and the second one is access to China market walkway is selling is a licensed to walkways five g technology foale full operations outside of China where hallway probably not able to expand into now because of American pressure now if this offer isn't taken seriously. Can it be seen as an olive branch in this present trade war. It certainly is a very smart move on the pact of Wild Way and China to project is a very positive light particularly in contrast to the combatant approach of Donald Trump but whether he will have any effect on the trump administration. I think really is a bit farfetched changed so really what we're looking at. Here is the the fact that it has diplomatic value rather than any kind of commercial value I would suspect so deep ed main competitors lie recent or Nokia extremely unlikely to buy Weiwei's technology and it is also also some awesome which do so and for any US company doing so and then try to reassure the trump administration that is top notch. American technology is not going to go down well in Washington at all yeah Steve. Finally I mean we're in a time no way that there's such a complex overlap of state politics cutting edge technology -nology and big business. It's all coming together and actually while way represents all of that. I think you're absolutely right. Hallway is a company the old very special standing in the eyes of the Chinese leadership so even though Wa wa is strictly speaking not a state owned enterprise it enjoys the support of the Chinese State and what we're seeing here is the the West will go to many many lengths to keep gateway out but China to is happy to go the other way. Yes I think when we say the West we are here referring to the United States the UK may well in the end goal with the United States because every time since the end of the Second World War if we have have to choose between supporting the United States or a country. That's has still a Communist Party in power we always end up supporting United States but it doesn't necessarily mean that we won't go in directions entirely on our

Remember the company three com they were an internet pioneer and largely forgotten today. John's zilbert decided to co author a book about three com and bring them back into the public consciousness. The book is called three com. The unsung saga of the Silicon Valley startup that helped give birth to the internet. We've got John Silber here on today's episode talking tech. Stay tuned, and let's have a listen. Okay. So the book is the first history of three com, the hugely successful and widely influential company that nobody today remembers. So, you know, if I ask you, do you know who Chester Arthur is almost nobody's gonna know that name, but he was the twenty first president of the United States, kind of a big deal. Right. He was influential in fighting segregation and trying to end political cronyism. But. Wikipedia pays is only about half a page long. So three com is kind of the Chester Arthur of tech companies. You know, they were enormously successful, but nobody remembers them, but they do know the technology that three come made possible things like the inter the Ethernet internet Email WI fi. They even own palm, which basically paved the way for the iphone and they didn't just create all this amazing technology. But they also invented a lot of what became the standard business model for tech startups, they acquired and partnered with overseas companies long before that was a common practice. In fact, their final partnership was a joint venture with Weiwei the Chinese tech powerhouse that's making headlines even today. So in, in a lotta ways, they became a role model for the fast growing startups. Like facebook. And Google that dominate the tech world today. You might even call three come the first unicorn of Silicon Valley growing from an idea. Sketched on a napkin to becoming a captain of industry, practically overnight. So our book wanted to capture that story and, basically, you know, remind people who this who this company was, and what they brought to the world hard. So, so you wanted to do it to give them their Mark in, in, in history. What happened to three com company was started about forty years, forty years ago and kind of trailed out about a decade ago when the company basically was a joint venture with wow away and had some products that were of interest to HP so HP acquired, what was left of the company and actually got a lot of value out of the products that they acquire. They fill the very necessary piece of the puzzle for H P, and those products evolved in continue to be on the market today. Like, what particular pieces of enterprise server products? Okay. So hardcore stuff. All right. So the name of the book, it's basically, if you go on Amazon, and search for three com you'll find the book there, but the full name of the book, which kind of tells the short version of the story is three com.

It is delayed until September from previously announced launch date of June at the journals Delyth tech conference in Hong Kong last week, Vincent Pang.

The CEO of online travel company, booking Glenn Fogel, says China in particular, is using facial recognition to increase efficiency noting. The country is a head of the US in digital payments, and fischel recognition, nobody Lee, you is thinking all Ali pay, or we chat with that, but people live on that in China. And one of the biggest things are some of the technology differences. So, for example, things being really, picked up fast in, in China in general facial recognition in China, where they're using it to make it more efficient to get through an airport or any type of security thing. And this became more efficient, d she spans beyond China. And as we creep into the world. Of digital regulation. New such tech is beginning to cause headaches for companies who have customers worldwide different parts of the world, different legal jurisdictions that are coming up with different rules, Judea GDP are in Europe. You got this California law and all sorts of different things coming up in the questions. Sometimes I conflict in the makes it really hard for a global player, especially when you have customers who are going all these different jurisdictions, which one applies. How do you do it? How do you match that up? That's costly. It'd be lovely if there was sort of one Google regulation privacy, we've got a little follow that, and where do you store, the data incredibly complex issues. We got a lot of people working on it again, from my point of view of the CEO. I just make sure that it'd be understands all of our employees understands. How important it is to make sure we do. What is right? Which is maintaining the privacy for our customers because he had don't do that. You lose that trust. And you lose that trust you lose the consumer that's on.

As Google Advances Its Interests, It Serves As Huawei Emissary To U.S.
"Turning to some news here in the US on while way, Google has been quietly, assuming the role of emissary for wow, way, after the Chinese telecom company was blacklisted by the Trump administration. Google is in effect negotiating with the Commerce Department on while ways behalf. That's according to a senior official at while way. NPR's arthy Shahani has that story. The fates of wow way and Google are intertwined. While way is a leader in creating next generation wireless networks on. It's the world's number two maker of smartphones. Google provides support for Android the popular operating system, the US government ban against wow, way, also blocks Google from giving security updates to millions of existing why phones and for misuing Android licenses in the future in an interview this week with why chairman Liangwa NPR asked him, how his company would resolve the problem of losing access to Google software whose job. The is at fairy responsible company. We have maintained Verret cooperation with each other. He speaking through a translator at a headquarters in Shenzhen won. The Ben, I went into effect, and Google announced it would cut ties. There was an outcry days later, the Trump administration said it would postpone parts of the ban until August.

Giant's is well understood the world over while as Lee and is now leading on Google to influence, the department of commerce on his company's behalf them Google, we really look forward to productive results from the communication that who is currently having with the Commerce Department last month, citing national security concerns. The Trump administration added way to a list of banned entities American companies for mobile providers to chipmakers like Intel and Qualcomm will not be allowed to do business with, wow way that. That's because according to US officials the company's technology could be used for surveillance, if a resolution isn't reached Liang says while we will have to build its own software, which would be difficult because you gene.

A Google spokesperson says the company is engaging with the department of commerce to ensure Google is in full compliance with the new rules. The company declined to say, if it's talks with the government have included directly or indirectly advocating for the ability to support future Weiwei devices, NPR, interviewed several former senior officials at commerce, and the White House who are concerned that a private company governed by its own self interest is advocating at this juncture where.

Appearing today in VC supreme court she since been released on ten million dollar bail, awaiting possible, extradition to the US move. She's about to fight from there. The narrative splits into stories about retaliation stories about political posturing trade, stories and business stories and technology stories most of these items are small enough that unless you're really paying attention. You might not notice them, but they are all part of the same big story and that story is still unfolding even when it's not dominating headless yesterday. The president signed an executive order effectively banning US telecom companies from using wall, way technology for five G. This is the next Canada updating its. Travel advisory for China, telling Canadians to exercise, a high degree of caution in China Canada's rocky relationship with China hit another bump today. Beijing has now blocked canola imports from a second Canadian producer Tara over alleged contamination by pests is it an show them? One day you look up your country is four months out from an important election and finds itself. Caught directly between two superpowers with no easy way. So what happens now how did Canada and China's relationship end up here? Can the liberals really soften their talk and deescalate tensions in the middle of an election? And if they do that, and Donald Trump doesn't like it. What happens then? I'm Jordan heath rulings? And this is a big story about a rock and hard place and us David Maas crop is one of our favorite. Geopolitical analysts is a political scientist, and he is the author of too dumb, for democracy. Let's start with the really basic simple stuff. How is Canada's relationship with China right now? It's pretty awful unless something changed in the last couple of hours. And I don't think it has it is that one of the lower point the being out in years, when I was doing my masters I became deeply interested in international relations and China and took a course on China studied, I are SETI, global international local economy. And so that was that's the baseline that I'm going from from my head. I doubt for a couple of years, I was expecting to China and I didn't. But then in the last year or so I doubt back in, especially the last six months, and there's been a notable decline since Canada arrested. Among one Joe on request of the Americans would like her extradited to the US where she's indicted on a couple of dozen or so charges. Of working with a Ron, which is under American sanctions. And that was really the sort of opening salvo in deteriorating deteriorating relationship between Kennedy and China and that sort of decline has been marked by obviously the arrest, but Dan, China, banning Canadian, canola imports arresting to Canadian nationals, Michael covert. Michael Foulon sentencing to Canadians to death on drug charges and Canada, considering banning while way for five technology which the Americans would very much like us to do. So there's you can see from bats quick rundown at the last several months half year or so a growing tension. But, but fundamental rift surrounding largely long-term geopolitical interests. Explain for me if you can how Weiwei is tied to the Chinese government, because I. Here in the west in the, the coverage that we get it almost seems like an arm of the government. And, and I don't understand that. So well, I don't think it is. I mean, I'm not a China expert. I'm a. A writer observer scientists democracy interested in this. And so something I track across several different types of reporting. So it's interesting to see how different countries report on it. How international media reports on it? But also have business media reports on that versus political media. And one of the things you see is that there is some doubt to the rich while as connected to the Chinese government. And as one observer point of there's no smoking gun. But the concern is that either now or at some point while technology could be used in at least one of two ways to undermine geopolitical interests, including economic interests in corporate interests. And one is through the Chinese government, requesting data from the company extra-territorially and a company to comply. So one is they show up. China's government says, look, this is the rules, give us the data and they had no choice. It's a little bit of Kim to the US Patriot Act. And if. You've got stuff. But that's that's a domestic thing. So if you're a Canadian that uses g mail on your stuff is stored on American servers, the government, the US government can access that stuff under the Patriot Act, right? This is one of the concerns with using American service in American technology. It's a bit like that. So it's not like this is just the China issue in their, their concerns with the United States from since as well. So that's one of the Chinese government will be able to request that information. And from what I've read that is generally probably true. The government asked for it while we would have to provide the other is that why would actually build back doors into the technology that would allow spies the Chinese stayed to directly access that tater through the back door? Now, China has a long history of corporate XP knowledge stealing ideas, stealing intellectual property. They're not the only ones, of course. I mean, a lot of America was built and stealing intellectual property. But that is part and parcel of the struggle, you mentioned America couple of times, I because we arrested while way CFO on their request and second. Because there may now be some pressure to not allow away on the five G network because of them. How is our relationship with the state's play into diplomacy with China, and what's Canada going to do if we're caught in the middle? I don't know. I would not want to be Christophe land right now because there isn't an immediate obvious good solution to this. If you're thinking, geopolitically, if you if you're worried about your relationship with the United States for all kinds of reason, the US has been in long-term decline. Then you have a problem if you specially if you wanna look around the world. Develop new alliances and new relationships and China's one of those, especially if you rely on China for things like canola exporting canola, which is significant for Canadian partners. On the other hand, you're dealing with Trump who's Curiel at the best of times. And you're trying to get the US MCA agreement, the US NCA ratified, which is increasingly difficult and unlikely in the current US congress, it might have to wait. So what do you do your bound to the US for other reasons to the border, the movement of goods and individuals? Whatever it was eighty percent or so of our trade, but also defense, right? I mean they're a defense arrangements, whether it's NORAD or NATO. And then on top of that, we're part of the five is intelligence community, and there are concerns that if, if those countries allow countries that are part of the fun is allow wobbly technology. They may not want to share intelligence with them for fear that it's compromise. So what do you do if you're Canada, I have no idea. You know, eve version, who's a scholar at UB a China scholar. I usually Pacific scholar thinks that the immediate move is you deescalate with China and to rebalance that relationship, the more, I think about the more I think he's onto something. But as a recently for the boat mail, we also have to think forward fifty to one hundred years, and they go, what kind of international order. We want to be part of building to ensure that we have a just and ideally democratic. World. Order governed by very careful norms. What country is due to one another into their own people? Well, how does China's global strategy play into what Canada's facing because you've used sort of outlined, some of their bigger strategies towards trade, and trying to lead that international order? So the Chinese belt and become sort of modestly obsessed with the Chinese and road initiative. Explain explain exactly what the belt in Rhode initiative is for those of us who are hearing about it for the first time. So it's several years old now, dates to give or take twenty thirteen and what it is, is in short oversupply a little bit on attempt to recreate the silk road. Through a massive roughly one trillion dollar US infrastructure and development program that will stretch across give or take between sixty and seventy countries and dozens of organizations, and this is a factory China launching a massive investment throughout the world. Now. Depending on how you see it. It's a bit of a rohrschack test for your perspective on China. You could be seen as a development project. It could be seen as a trap China's investing in these countries and that has them on the hook largely, like, by the way, developed countries have been doing around the world for years, in, for instance through IMF programs, but it's also potentially a projection military force, and building of allied ships, strategic partnerships while in the Americas in western Asia in Africa. It now has a growing military component as well to some extent, for instance, with Pakistan, who's building Chinese fighter jets, depending on how you see it. It's some combination of development program infrastructure program, military program and debt trout and big geopolitical play to help China direct the global order in the next in this. In the next century, if one of the options is to deescalate with China and ease the tensions kind of become become more of a part of what they're doing. Can the liberal government do that in an election year? I mean they've they've been standing tough so far. Can they turn around and deescalate this thing without losing face, what would what would the other parties have them do? I'm very curious to I mean Andrew shears line is that he wants to reset the relationship? I don't know what that means. What that would look like I don't know if this is a get tough on China plant, what you're possibly to get tough perspective is that China has been sort of bucking the international order for years, and they talk a lot about rights rules, but they don't follow them themselves. The liberals have been trying to for instance, negotiate some sort of settlement, obviously on canola, but also to try to secure the release of my covert space for China's been hesitant to take meetings, high level meetings and. And we don't have an ambassador in China, currently, and the Chinese investor is leaving at the end of the month. He's been quote unquote promoted to Paris. So now he hasn't exactly been, I think particularly easy to work with. And obviously, if you remember back to John McCallum, who was retired by premise, true toe that relationship wasn't particularly productive. I think either so they're caught. So I don't know what they do in, in lection year because even if the get tough on China rhetoric might play well to some it's not going to serve the country. Well, conserved, canola farmers is not going to serve detained Canadians is not going to serve two Canadians, who are right now have been
Could a challenger to iOS and Android come from China?
"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by the Michigan economic Development Corporation, Evan Lyle of rush enterprises, is a big fan of Michigan as he put it the future of mobility, is going to be decided right here in the state, visit planet dot com to find out why. That's P. L. A. N. E T, M dot com. Could the mobile operating system to challenge? I o s an Android come from China from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Ali would. The Chinese electronics guy in while way is the world's second biggest smartphone manufacturer. And it suddenly finds itself without an official mobile operating system. Google is scheduled to cut off while ways access to its official version of Android as of August that follows a US ban on doing business with w-way while we says it's been working on its own mobile operating system. And meanwhile, the Chinese company bite dance, which owns the hit social network, tick tock, said it would explore launching its own custom phone with preloaded by dance apps, but many have tried to build alternatives to either Android or Apple's. I o s and so far all have failed Julius gets a principal analyst at Forrester research. She said the reason is any new mobile operating system, just doesn't have enough apps. It just takes a lot of momentum to build out an ecosystem with a developer community that's going to build enough services and apps. For your platform, or for your operating system to make the device compelling to consumers. Do you think that the way to success for a third party mobile OS developer is to sort of re imagine the ecosystem, like, for example, where we're talking about to Chinese companies. We know that integrated messaging is already huge in China, like, is it possible that, that a company could come along, and say, we're going to build a new mobile operating system. That is that's one hundred percent dependent on messaging and mobile web. So I think a company could come along and do that. And that would fit a slice of the market, and that would be a good plan. That might carry a company for the next three to five to eight years. We haven't seen that success replicated though outside of China. So it may be the right strategy for China, but I think you have to also be willing to look beyond and say, what about voice and immersive experiences. And what's next either things that are more ambient? So you think we're. For the duopoly is likely to continue until we actually transcend. Let's say smartphones completely. I think Molly. I mean we've both been in mobile long enough to remember when the center of power was in Europe and Nokia dominated the world with their Symbian operating system. So I don't think there's ever like a forever in this picture. I think absolutely. We could see the center of gravity shifts west and into Asia. And then who knows what's next this gets to my theory about the parallel tech economy in China that it could the only place that could incubate competition at that level. Really is China. And then it could depending on, you know, global relations sort of come screaming out of there like real competition to apple and Google hasn't happened yet. But could. Right. But I tell you Marley ever pretty limited perspective. Right. We've watched ten cent tried to come to the US. We've watched by do and we've watched them put beachheads out in Silicon Valley. But I haven't seen much of it yet Julie, ask as a principal. Analyst at Forrester research, while way has said it's mobile operating system should be ready to launch by twenty twenty. And now for some related links now Julius was diplomatic about whether Asia could end up producing the next great mobile operating system business insider, not so much. It's got a story with two charts showing how back in two thousand ten there were six or seven mobile operating systems, and, yes, Nokia's Symbian was by far, the most popular and nine years later, there are two and that is it. I mean, the poor windows phone didn't even make it onto either chart. That's how fast it came and went. Samsung tried to build its own s twice. Blackberry would not give up Mozilla tried with fire, FOX us, I mean, even Amazon had a go at it and jerks like me would review those phones ago. Yeah. But there's no official Instagram hap and now the thirty percent cut that apple takes from abseiled the amount of money that developers can make selling absence services on these phones pretty much. Means the app economy is here to stay as long as that's the experience. We expect on our smartphones. It's beyond an uphill climb for Weiwei way or by dance or anyone else. Now that said the economist has a story from April about yet another challenger rising in India, based on Mozilla Firefox. So s it's on fifty million or so lower. End phones in India, and Indonesia and raised all over there will appreciate this. It's called high. Oh, S. I'm Molly would. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.
Huawei Threat Is Already Here, FCC Commissioner Starks Says
"Support for this podcast and the following message come from mayo clinic if you're looking for answers no one else has been able to find, you know, where to go mayoclinic. More at mayo clinic dot org slash answers. The Trump administration has big concerns about Chinese telecommunications, giant Weiwei here. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo on Fox News. While way, is an instrument of the Chinese government, they're deeply connected. So the US government is trying to prevent American companies from buying always equipment. But what about the equipment that's already being used here in the US? That's what Jeffrey stark says worried about. He is the Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission or the FCC and he joins me now. Thanks so much for being with us. Good morning. Great to be with you. Do you have a firm understanding of how much while way equipment is currently in the US? I think that's something that we are all of us trying to focus on right now is, what is the scope of the problem. Here. What is the scope of how much while way equipment is in our networks right now? And a lot of the focus has been on correcting the amount of Galway infrastructure. That is currently in our networks, going forward the issue that I wanna focus on is, we know that while way has a, a position already in a number of small rural carriers networks already and we need to focus on that issue. So I wanna get to your prescription. But when you talk about why we equipment being used in these rural networks how so how's it employed? It can be deployed in a number of different manners. It can we know for a number of the wireless networks that it is in their very core. It is in. They're intent as it is in their radios, it is in how they tr- transmit signals over their networks. And so it is fully deployed in a lot of wow equipment, fully throughout these small rural carriers. So it would be your concerned that this equipment could be of could be manipulated for surveillance, by the Chinese government. I mean is that your word? I think there are two main concerns that folks have I think the first risk is, of course, that there could be some espionage. The second concern is that there would be an ability by wall way through the Chinese and the Chinese government to disrupt or disabled, some of our communication networks, particularly in times of a national emergency. So you wrote in an op Ed in the hill that, that you want all this equipment removed, as you noted the Trump administration is focused on moving forward, but you say they quit here. We got to get rid of it. How would you do that? And that is the crux of the issue that a lot of us in particular here at the FCC were, we are in control of the networks. This is a national defense issue. That's what certainly are executive agencies are telling us. And so I think it's going to be imperative that we come up with a practicable solution that finds it fixes it and funds it and by that, I mean, making sure that we find the full scope of the wall way infrastructure, that is in our networks, that is presenting a vulnerable, national security issue, making sure that we fix it. And for most for the most part, I think that's probably going to be replacing the Queant that presents that security risk. And then making sure that we funded a lot of these small rural telecommunications carriers are, in fact operating on a very thin budget. And so, I think it is going to be important that. We find a way to ultimately be able to help folks, make sure that we take care of the security threat, and that most likely is gonna mean paying for it, right. As you point out that this is a problem. They these smaller companies didn't create. And so you say the government should be responsible for making them whole after after taking away. I think that's right going back to twenty twelve twenty thirteen and even even more clearly in two thousand seventeen twenty eighteen it has been clear that the US government is growing increasingly uncomfortable with having this way equipment in our network in our infrastructure. But a lot of these folks until the executive order was issued about two weeks ago, which made it completely official that the national security risk was very clearly there. A lot of folks were making the business decision on their own about where they settled on the fact of what they going to go ahead and purchase for the this equipment. A lot of this equipment was while we has particularly made it very cheap and made it available to a lot of these small rural carriers. And so we know that there's a lot of it out there. FCC Commissioner Gregory Stark's for us this morning. Thank you so much for your time. We appreciate it. Thank you so much.
"weiwei" Discussed on Windows Weekly
"Right. You know, what I if there's some kind of an open question would I trust apple with my healthcare data? The answer's yes. Of course. I would would I trust Google or Weiwei or Samsung with that did it's. Maybe I mean, I I I could you can almost imagine like the advertisements that would appear on your phone because I'm chugging up a hill, and I can barely make it. And now Google knows this and starts targeting me with whatever it is. And you know, like, I know Microsoft's never going to do that, you know, and I would trust and I also trust Appleton everyday. But Microsoft was there first they could have had this. You know, the problem with the apple stuff is it's locked into the apple ecosystem in the Microsoft thing. Ran everywhere. It was on windows phone, but it was also an Android. Yeah. Else? I always had this hope to that other wearable makers would integrate with the software right with the services. Right. Because obviously, creating this stuff is difficult. Microsoft is any position to do. Well, and you can have some kind of a smaller company, maybe not fit. But maybe the, you know, the misfits of the world or whatever that someone, you know, would come along and say, you know, we're gonna use Microsoft health and bandwidth only be one of the devices that you could use through that, sir. Yeah. But that never to my knowledge never happened at all. I think that was. I think it was a goal. I think that was a plan for sure actually. Always feel bad about band. You know, that was a good product. I know fan, right? A family came Kim. I remember that I tried it. I wore it for what it was really big and bulky on a woman's wrist, at least a mind. No it was. Yeah. My wife had one too. And it wasn't that flexible. So it really kind of rattled around. Right. Yeah. It was like a I don't wear a lot of Julia. But like, you know, it's kind of Bengali bracelet kind of things where it can kind of it probably moves on your wrists. As you move a lot of people would wear it. So that the screen was on the inside of the arrests. Which is you know, some people do that with watches. I think for the ban. They did it because it was actually a little more comfortable, you know, they tried. Duct tape. People. Do it. I've seen it. I still have mine. It's I know exactly where it is. But what exactly where it is a bucket in the cellar? But I. Are you concerned about the lithium ion batteries exploding? No, it's it's in the like, it would be the bad place. It put it in a thin plastic being you special no longer use device pin first generation surface pen in there. There's it's full of stuff. I don't know what the haven't been it says for the waste recycler. Yes. Wait until June. I twenty nineteen and just throw this thing. Yep. You don't need it by that. It's it's. Oh, well, it's sad. But you know, what this has been a decade of Microsoft, kind of turning its back on initiatives and focusing on the cloud. Work focusing on things that actually have a chance instead of things that are like they never they never gave it a chance that I actually think chance right? I mean, Microsoft really treated this one like an experiment. I it's not it madman. Rationally they would say the Bill and contender absurd. They just make like a limited number of them. And they're like, well, we're going to sell these. And we're going to see how this goes. And then there were people waiting to buy them. And they're like, oh, you know, they'll come back eventually, and there were there were months like you couldn't even buy these things. You could make the same case on Cortana on home speakers. Right. Like, they they even had a couple of times, including Harman Kardon. Right. And then it was just like, hey, we're not gonna do that about hope speakers..
"weiwei" Discussed on KQED Radio
"This is fresh air. Let's get back to my interview with David Sanger and national security correspondent for the New York Times. We're talking about the five G network that is being created now and will soon become the central nervous system of the internet. The Chinese telecom equipment giant Weiwei is dominating. The creation of five G networks around the world for years classified. US intelligence reports have warned that China would one day us Weiwei to penetrate American networks for cyber espionage or cyber attacks. So we were talking about the founder of. Wow, Weiwei and his connections to the Chinese military, and why always connections to the Chinese government? The founder of Weiwei his daughter was arrested in Canada at the request of the US and indicted last week. So what are those charges and what what are their significance? Well, the first thing about the daughter is in her own, right? She's very powerful. Figure within WaWa. She's the chief financial officer. But she's also been the architect of a lot of wild ways spread around the world. When she was arrested in Canada in December through request to the United States. It was not for any charges that while way had participated in espionage against the US. It was not from on any charges that it had participated in cyber attacks on the United States. Instead, it was based on a charge that she had been behind a giant fraud in which Weiwei way used a cutout company to violate the sanctions at the United States had against Iran. And that this company was in fact, a wild way secretly awhile way subsidiary and was doing business with Iran in violation of the sanctions. So the US is using the Iran sanctions violation to go after the company now the other interesting part about this is that President Trump at one point in December. After she was arrested. But before she was indicted publicly mused about the fact that he might trader away in the course of the trade negotiations lesser, president was politicizing what until then had been a legal action going through normal legal channels, and one of the interesting questions is whether the Canadians are going to extradite her because there have been several Canadians now arrested in China, so that they have counter hostages, and it's possible that the Canadians may determine that this case is more political than criminal. President Trump has said that he knows more about technology than anyone. What's your understanding? How much he understands the issue of while way and its potential ability to hack America to spy on America. I've a couple of concerns the first is the president mind turns as he said himself many times two things you can build and so- issues around software networks and so forth. Just don't come naturally to the hasn't shown much of an inclination to learn about it during the time. He's president according to people who used to be in the administration, including in the national security field. The president has a somewhat hazy understanding about the risks of cyber escalation, so when you think about our cyber Rhys one concerns one we've discussed already today, which is surveillance, basically, you can use these networks to steal data. But the coming concerns Terry have to do more with data manipulation. What happens if you change the data? That's the problem of deep fakes something that would look like a politician was speaking, but it wasn't really the words coming out of his mouth. It's been faked. It could be substituting numbers and financial transactions. It could be substituting the targeting information in nuclear or non nuclear weapons, it could be changing the blood types of every soldier and sailor in the United States. If you got into the databases of the military, so there's data manipulation that's a concern. And if any country that had access to the networks, you would worry about that. And then the third is cyber attack, and that is that if we went to war, or we're conducting covert operations every country in the world now has cyber in its battle plans and usually. Early in the first twenty four hours of its battle plans in the perfect weapon. I describe a plan the United States had if we went to war with Iran called nitro Zeus to basically, unplug Iran's communications and electricity grids. Well, imagine that that's in the Chinese plans for the United States if they're in control of the communications grid of the US or its allies. You can imagine how much easier that is to do. Now, there's a concern here that we could get into a world of red scare and the president himself might be fueling that some. And I have concerns that we're blaming too much on the Chinese. But the fact of the matter is these are all major complex fungibility that has Henry Kissinger said to me is I was working on the book are so much more complex than the issues that came up with China in the Cold War, and you're concerned that our president doesn't really comprehend those issues. Can't adequately address them that. That's right. And there are esscalation issues here as well. I mean, there's still a big debate in the United States government about how you respond with cyberattack when the Chinese guide into Google and other companies in two thousand nine there were Google ingineers who wanted to retaliate directly against the servers where the attack was coming from. Fortunately, they were stopped but had that gone ahead or had gone ahead with another company. The question would be to the Chinese is this attack. This counterattack coming from a private company coming from some hackers has been commanded by the United States is a company operating on behalf of the US. And then they would escalate so you get all the same kind of escalation issues that we worried about in the nuclear age, but you get them in this technology world in which shutting down or diverting data becomes your new weapon. And we don't really understand. Band that escalatory response? Now, the president in August of last year issued a new classified order to the national security agency that basically gave the director of the national security agency more leeway to go respond to offensive cyber actions and initiate some without presidential approval. But still we don't understand who's in control of the esscalation. My guest is David Sanger national security correspondent for the New York Times. Also, the author of the book the perfect weapon about cyber war and cyber espionage. We'll talk more after we take a short break and our jazz critic Kevin Whitehead will review a reissue featuring pianist Oscar Peterson and a studio orchestra playing nineteen sixties pop covers this is.

"Cable news time, six fifty two. Let's time now to be joined by CBS business analyst Jill Schlesinger. Good morning. Jill thank you very much for joining us. Good morning and taking a look at the market. It's been it's been rough. Let's just put it that way. Don't look so hard. Okay. People. P q much. It really is last week was awful four to five percent drop on the week. And the gyrations were pretty dramatic throughout the week. Look underlying everything we have a investment community. That's worried that US and global growth is slowing, and that's not the worst thing in the world things move in waves. Right. But know this year, we're going to have very good growth because of those tax cuts that occurred at the beginning of the year, but the effect of those tax cuts it's wearing off. And so next year growth is going to downshift some on top of that worry, we have the U S China trade worry anxiety and that in the beginning of last week. It looked like things were kind of coming down. Hey, there's going to be like a ninety day truce. Then all the sudden the president started tweeting we had the arrest of this Weiwei executive later in the week. And all these things started to get investors, really spooked. And so that was the big sell off of. Last week. But again, it's growth plus trade concerns equals, I'm scared. And when vessels are scared what they do is. They sell stocks. Jill what is it? Inverted yield curve. You know, that is really just a manifestation of people's worry about growth, basically when you are buying US government bonds in a normal growth environment, you demand higher interest for the longer you buy that bomb.
