Google follows Apple in cutting Play Store fees for developers
"Seen that ran the piece tuesday saying that. Google is following apple's lead and lowering the commission charges most developers selling to the google play store while the changes similar to apple's at something google's scott might be more generous according to seeing that google will only take a fifteen percent commission on sales up to one million dollars the fee will jump to the standard thirty percent wants developers make more than the one million dollars in sales for a year. According to the report sounds the same as apples offer but it isn't a piece from ars. Technica ran the matt. Saying apple applies. It's lower fifteen percent rate to a developer. Developer exceed one million dollars in revenue in a given year at which point the thirty percent number is applied to all of that developers. Earn inc's google still charges fifteen percent on that first million even if the developer makes five million so in google's model a developer who earns one point two million dollars on a nap pays fifteen percent on one million then thirty percent on two hundred thousand and novels a developer making eight hundred thousand four hundred over fifteen percent on that amount but if they make one point two million they pay thirty percent on all one point two million. Not just two hundred thousand. It's tough to know how many developers straddle that million dollar fence. There's also a bird in the hand thing going on right now. While apple's lower commission went live at the first of the year seen that says google's won't drop until the first of july quoted in the scene that piece google. vp of product management. Samir soman said with this change ninety nine percent of developers globally that sell digital goods and services with play. We'll see a fifty percent reduction in fees. I'm no mathematician but does that indicate that ninety nine percent of developers selling in the google play store make less than a million dollars a year. I mean i knew the split between the cells and the cells knots was big but golly as for what such large as costs apple and google saying the cost is manageable would be understating it a piece from. Cnbc has numbers from the app. Tracking firm center tower. According to those apple and google or giving up less than five percent of their revenue from apps with the commission changes will let cnbc and sensor tower. Do them at this. If the fifteen percent fee schedule on revenue up to one million dollars and been in place on google play in twenty twenty google would have missed out on five hundred. Eighty seven million dollars or about five percent of sensor towers estimate of eleven point. Six billion dollars in google pay fees for the year. If apple's program had been in place for twenty twenty center tower estimates that it would have missed out on five hundred and ninety five million or about two point seven percent of its estimated twenty one point seven billion dollars an app store fees in twenty twenty. I gotta say that makes apple structure look worse. Actually and i didn't have to say that. And yet i did unhappy with the changes. A guy who won't be greatly affected by these changes. Google shuffling of commissions was likely spurred by apple's commissions which the start of the year that was likely spurred by bad press generated by the coalition for up fairness which was blinked into existence by epic game. Ceo tim sweeney putting it to sink play. Cnbc's says epic games is currently suing apple and google seeking the make changes to their app stores to allow for third party payment processors as well as other changes that is like the reader's digest version of the cliffs notes of what's going on but works summon forth from the fort. Sweeney took to twitter on tuesday to say why. The changes are inadequate in his estimation. quoting sweeney. Tweet it's a self serving gamut. The far majority of developers will get this new fifteen percent rate and thus be less inclined to fight but the far majority of revenue is naps. What the thirty percent rate so. Google and apple can continue to inflate prices and flees consumers with their app taxes.

Twitch apologizes to streamers for its mishandling of music copyright
"Something that's apparently changed in recent months with twitch regarding copyright and the the broadcasting of music that has some sort of copyright attached to it it used to be on twitch that you could play it a tune or series of of music and you could stream it live and there'd be no problem and then after the fact they would mute your stream so they have a program that they're they're running that you know reviews all of the archival streams and and says. There's this song over here. This song over here mute mute and then they just they mute like the five or six minute window that the song takes up and your stream. You still have the video on the on the track. There's just no audio there right. And it has like a little message that says tracks muted or the audience been muted due to copyright or whatever. What changed was that. A lot of major record labels discovered that people had used their music on twitch and they submitted just massive amounts of requests to twitch. Take down all these videos. So many that twitch couldn't really respond to them all probably tens of thousands if not millions of these letters from angry attorneys representing major record companies and toys. Like all right well shotgun. Everything now is what they said. Apparently according to the story here at ars technica twitch now this was written actually last month. I've had it on my show. Prep for weeks. But you and i are both streamers so the pig next talk about it. They recently apologized to their users for how they handled this copyright. Crackdown that. you're talking about. That happened back in october. But the site told streamers that they they still have to stop using copyrighted recordings to avoid further takedown notices.

A Message From Inside John's Closet. I Mean Office.
"It's the world depression. I'm John Mel. That theme song by Red Miller was played off the tiny Mac computer that I have here in my new office which is formerly known as the closet in my bedroom and my wife set up this nice little office. She cleared off a little shelf. I'll send you some pictures and over here on the facebook page and Yeah this is where I work now. I don't know how long I will be working in this closet. But that's just the way it is and rather than try to build a studio with perfect soundproofing and and get all the Mike Equipment that I need to make everything perfect. I thought I would just do this. I'm talking into my iphone It's a it's an IPHONE X. Are I believe and I have my little computer here? And we're making do with what we have because that's kind of the spirit of the Times right now. We are in a I. Guess a porn teen not really quarantined in our house. Because everybody's feeling fine. We are allowed to leave the house but as a society were being told to kind of stay away from each other in in meat space but in the world of bits in the world of computer transmitted thing he's We can still can still talk. I can still talk to you and I thought maybe I should because this is a tough time. If you're depressed I mean also another tough time. If you're depressed is all the time but this is kind of something else What we've been going through and I want to talk a little bit about the the brain shape the whole thing rather than getting into the epidemiology or the economic ramifications of this. Both of which are are very very complicated and very large. But I wanNA talk about our minds a little bit and I wanted just Reach out to people who are dealing with anxiety and or depression already and talk about what that's like in these circumstances because for me. I'm not going off script here. I'm just I'm just here in my closet talking to my phone as a man is want to do for me. What's interesting about this whole thing? Is that it mirrors. How a lot of us saw the world already. We saw it as this thing. This place where something bad is always about to happen. The way anxiety tends to process itself and processed. The unknown is to raise to the worst possible thing that might happen and and use that human imagination and then conclude the. That's the thing that probably will happen. And it usually guides you to an impossible place guides you to a situation that you wouldn't be able to handle and it's a real bastard for doing that but that's often what it does and the depressed mind to kind of things. Well how will this? What will happen will always be the thing that has no hope and the thing that most closely relates to despair you know the the the grim ending that that we think is is almost certainly always on the way. I have heard from some people who say yeah. You know this. This is what we've always thought this you know. We're we're dealing with this virus down. We don't know what the future is doesn't look like it's going to wipe out humanity itself but it looks like it's going to cause a lot of problems and it's going to cause a lot of deaths and right now there's a lot of uncertainty so in many ways the world is fleshed out the way that people like us have always kind of seen it. I have heard from some people who say yeah. You know it's it's oddly reassuring that I can say look. This is how I told you it was going to be. This is this is how it was This is how what was going on in my mind already You know it's it's It's like finding a monster under your bed after suspecting that there was a monster under your bed just looking down there and seeing a monster who is wearing a shirt that says monster on it. You know it's kind of a relief to know that you had it right but then there is also the monster to deal with but really I think it's a it's a dangerous time Because people with depression people with anxiety disorder don't have the same reserves as the normies as the people who don't have to deal with this kind of thing you know we've been we've had reached down deep for survival for so long. There's no deep left to to reach down into. We don't have the reserves. The army's have the reserves and we don't and so what are we to do well in the same way that the normies can kind of just adapt People who have these kinds of issues Have to make a plan to adapt like to a lot of people. Challenges are just okay. It's a challenge. I'll just do this. We sometimes need a bit more of a plan. We need to make sure that we're doing okay And I'm not a doctor. Obviously not a therapist. I've just done a lot of reading and talking and writing about these issues and I will remind you of a few things. I've talked about this on twitter already but a few things facts there are so much information in speculation and rumor out there in the world right now things that neighbors say two neighbors and things you overhear things maybe you misunderstood get facts go to the CDC website There's a great ongoing blog on ars. Technica called. Don't panic which is also nice reference to Douglas. Adams went up my nerds. So get facts wherever possible Social media another point here point number. Two social media is a fire hose sue. Don't put it in your mouth. There's so much information coming at you. Most of it is just the screaming of the people who are writing it sometimes. It's morbid humor sometimes. It's there's a different agenda play. Go sparingly on it and if somebody is causing hesitation and you don't think you need it then turn it off you know. Unfaithful them mute them blocked them. Just take them away. You don't owe anything to anybody in that space. If I'm if you follow me and I'm saying upsetting things. Please follow me. Do what you need to do. You don't know anybody anything number three. It's okay to take breaks. This crisis does not need your constant attention unless you are an epidemiologist urologist in which case please pay attention that for most of the rest of us. It's okay to go for a walk. It's okay to pet the dog. It's okay to watch a movie go ahead and do it It will let you know that there is a greater world than just thinking about this virus all the time number four and this is the one I've been holding onto the most is if you're working from home if your kid home from school when you'd really rather be with your friends if you're a college student home from school you're helping. Please know that you're helping everything that we do all this. Sacrifice and inconvenience is the right thing to do to help society so often in a in a war scenario global crisis scenario. We think out there was something I could do. I feel so helpless. Well stay home. You know be practical. Maybe order the things that you need online but don't do a bunch of crazy shopping. Keep the system moving more efficiently for people trying to get their basic food and medical needs provided but nothing. You're helping
Intel’s unfixable chip flaw could give hackers access to encrypted data
"An unfixable flaw in nearly all intel chips released in the last five years has been discovered that allows sophisticated attackers to access the mask Rom. A piece of the chip. That boots the very first piece of CSM. Firmware and the vulnerability can't be patched with a FIRMWARE UPDATE. Quoting ARS TECHNICA. The flaw resides in the converged security and management engine a subsystem inside. Intel. Cpu's and Chipsets. That's roughly analogous to Ares. Platform security processor often abbreviated as CSM. This feature implements the firmware base trusted platform module used for silicon based encryption authentication of U. E. F. I. Bios firmware Microsoft System Guard and bit locker and other security features. The bug stems from the failure of the input output memory management unit which provides protection preventing the militias modification of static random access memory to implement early enough in the firmware boot process. That failure creates a window of opportunity for other chip components such as the integrated sensor hub to execute malicious code. That runs very early in the BOOT process. With the highest of system privileges quote this vulnerability jeopardizes everything until has done to build the root of trust and lay a solid security foundation on the company's platform. Mark Emmer lead specialist of hardware security at security firm positive technologies wrote any post detailing the bug quote. The problem is not only that it is impossible to fix firmware errors that are hard coded into the Mask Rom of microprocessors and chipsets. The larger worry is that because this vulnerability allows a compromise at the hardware level. It destroys the chain of trust for the platform as

Android's new "Ambient Mode" turns a charging phone into a smart display
"Google assistance ambient mode. Let's advice display images or play music or control smart home devices and more waltz charging it's kind of just sitting there hoping out being a little helper the feature started rolling out to select android eight point zero or newer devices from Nokia and Jomie devices last week and ars Technica technical reports that it will hit Sony and Oem at transition next week Pixel users still have the similar pixel stand Ui but MBA mode attempts to be a little bit more proactive proactiv. Yeah I've got the Pixel stand I think if I yeah if I pick it up I can kind of show it to now goes away But it basically just shows me a clock in the weather and it's kind of Nice this new ambient mode is much better it shows it gives you shortcuts to things like setting alarm or going into do not disturb mode and like it's like they say it's supposed to anticipate what you want so if you're the kind of person that wants it to show a slide show. It will do that. It knows what time of day it is so it can dim itself things like that. I'm looking forward to this coming to my android devices. Well because it seems like it'll be interesting to play with whether I'll actually want to use it a lot. I don't know sometimes I get annoyed. I'm like I just wanted to turn off off. I realized Oh no. It's supposed to be doing that. That's a feature. It seems like something that is a little bit of a novelty ability but also I'm sure some people will be you know when my phone is the way he may main way I look at time and if fit can be telling me time when it's resting sure why not I guess it does beg the question of energy consumption and it's Salat but no the whole point of this is that this is very low power mode and it only do it while you're charging anyway and it does anywhere the NBA on the ambient mode does way more than tell time. Tell time is what my pixel stand you. I does right now. This this is doing a lot more cool stuff. I think I think it it would work really. Yeah well sort of like you have setup Tom where you're sitting at your desk anyway. Why not charge your phone right? They're not using it. You know you're so the fact that it's a clock they're kind of just becomes part of your setup because if you if you for example in my house I have a few different iphone chargers and sort of depending on what I'm doing and my phone. I'm like crap I need to charge my phone. It gets plugged into all sorts of places. There's not really like a great stand where it's like a reliable some sort of information that's being fed to me but if if I had a good reason to do that I would so. I like this idea at the same time when you're sitting at your desk you're probably on your computer and you have all that information formation on your computer but maybe it's active enough that it will show you stuff and you know what you with information realizing you need. I think that's where ambient mode becomes more attractive to me because you're right now I can see like the temperature of the date and the time. And it's like okay but if I could show me a slide show or pop up the reminders that that you know could also get but maybe it's too distracting to have it on my main. There's more options. It's more proactive than I think that that could be more useful. Hey folks the least helpful. I think it will actually be. But we'll see if you want to get all the headlines.

Google Stadia Launch Review
"Reviews Google. Stadia are out one day before it launches for founders on Tuesday November nineteenth and the consensus is works better than expected but still not quite good. Enough there's some noticeable lag which is not a problem in slow paced games but may or may not cause issues on shooters just depending on how. Oh sensitive you are to it. Ars Technica Kyle. Orleans said it worked fine on Ethernet for him but was inconsistent to the point of aggravation on on his wife anyway. most Oh said it kind of feels like a Beta Verges Sean. Hollister said it felt more reliable than similar services. He's tested but does not compare to a high end console or PC DC and and gadgets. Jessica Condit said I wouldn't play any of these titles competitively on stadia but the services find enough for a relaxing evening. If you don't remember. Google Stadia has upped it. They added some games. So they're gonNA have twenty two games at launch for one hundred thirty dollars plus ten dollars a month plus twenty to sixty dollars per the game. It's interesting the the whole sort of like okay. It's not snappy enough for competitive gaming but it's totally fine and for a fun relaxing evening. Who are the people who want one and not the other Yeah it's very of course I mean mobile gamers I guess sure. Yeah I mean I would probably be one of those people who's like I don't i. Don't care about the snapping -sarily if I've got like three games that I like and I wanNA play a lot but just I wonder what you know. WHO's going to be diverted from from from getting Google stadium knowing it's a little bit sluggish? Yeah well even if it doesn't actually apply to them it's kind of interesting because it will diverge personal me like I. I actually do game and and that Noel Second Response Response Time is important. But I don't know if you remember but I was on when stadium was announced and we we had talked about one point and I'm like Joe Streaming Guy it's been doing doing screening for years and I was amazed I was for the Beta was amazing because there's just a few people on it but I was amazed by the sort of overall. Let's just go out there and do it attitude stadium. It's hard like that stuff is hard and in and user managing user complaints when users really don't understand like how streaming is affected by all the various the pieces between the server and your game controller. They were. They're taking a huge gamble Microsoft by lake coming forward. So it's it's it's going to be kind of interesting. This is the same crowd. Yeah that was like complaining about that season. Game of thrones being too dark. It's like well. I I think to answer your question Sarah Anybody who games on an older other xbox or playstation especially if the playstation three or xbox three sixty which there still are some people will be fine with this that. I got a peek at it this weekend and my feeling was for me. It's fine like I'm not a competitive gamer. I'm not really attuned to the leg. So those of you who are competitive or think you you know your competitive are going to notice it. I imagine most people aren't what's a bigger problem is what ours tecnicas Kyle. Orland pointed out. And that's to your point rob rob which is there something in his Wifi that caused issues that he didn't see an Ethernet and a lot of people are GonNa say this doesn't work. It's your fault. Even though it may be the router setting or their equipment or something else on their network slowing it down because there are so many variables there. Yeah Yeah. It's I think eventually chilly. They're going to work this out. I mean this is the same problem net flicks at very very early on. That's true stuttering and all this stuff so so getting those. CDN CDN's in place and they've got the got the bucks to do it. So

Rollout but of course as we now if you buy oneplus phone now unlocked it works rise in which you didn't previously kinda expanding the ability where it can be used so it's just it's a good time to be a one plus user. That's the real lose if he asked me I I mean we knew we knew that a phone would be coming and it's in this time period and it's time for the T. phone but if verizon picks up one plus hoick shore the the unlocked funds could work on on verizon but flow putting them in the store and selling them to the millions of people who go to rise in stores. That's a game changer because you'll have the employees who work there like telling people about it and you know rising employees or like best buy employees in that they tend to hire folks who are like really into into tech and so you have those people who come in and go. Hey I want to tell you about this like really cool seeing that you probably didn't see a commercial about which I I love. I love the enthusiasm when you go into the store in that also means marketing material which is like a big deal totally yeah who who Samsung learned that lesson apple or Google still learning that lesson one plus Pan Dave really come a long way they A- As a as a scrappy little upstart and I think going into horizon could be the really big turn around for them. I would consider one plus us more and more over the last year or two Previously I never had any interest in them. You know I saw that they were less expensive and everybody talked about just how great it was. You know a dollar for dollar but I was always stuck on the pixel line or the next line is just my taste but they they're getting my eyeballs now. They they're putting it out there in in keeping the price down. It's the big thing because I still think price prices are just too high for phones yeah Iran at Ars Technica your or even posted on on on as part of his article like he considers the one plus seven pro to be the android phone of the year says features sure standpoint from a price standpoint quality Ron Ron has it so that's all you need to know and it's a great phone and and then do you think about the state of smartphones right now. When you go into a carrier store Samsung yes everybody knows Samsung? Everybody knows apple of course Google old people like for whatever reason people are still kind of reserved when it comes to Google brand and then you have the others you have. HTC failing brand got LG. I'M NOT GONNA say failing no not not not quite in there not thriving. They're not thriving so you put a Bram like one plus and the momentum they have right now. The quality that they're putting out for that price into a carrier store with the caliber is variety yeah. This is huge for that this breakout for them and to build to build on that Jason you know. LG isn't going anywhere because LG is an enormous company that sells lots of electronics right yeah so it's not Britain but it's not brin butter but also the phone category just another category they also so washer dryers for Christ's sake you know like the same thing as Samsung and all sorts of one plus. This is all aside from this and backpacks. This is all all they do and you can't buy their backpacks or other amazing backpacks. Let me I got the first backpack it's right here and this is a game changer back. I wish I could get the second one but but no but but realistically this is this is all they're focused on and I gotta tell you after you know it's been almost a year of being you know it was on the one plus six in the six seven pro and I'll have the seven in pro and I'll be at work or I'll be socially and people will stop me and be like what phone is that and I'm not you know we all know we don't carry iphones. I I don't carry the Samsung I I haven't

"Approach because it means that you're using instead of a mechanical system. You're using an integrated circuit in order to store information you no longer have to worry about spinning platters or reading heads or anything like that. You can really decrease the amount of time that, that latency time so that when you are pulling information from the hard drive, it's much closer to the speeds that you would see on the CPU diet, self released in the computer's memory, as opposed to on a traditional hard drive. And before we get to far into this, I do want to say something about what some of the sources of information we pulled from. Oh, yeah, you do have a great article on how stuff works about how flash drives work and a lot of the information applies to solid state drives. Yeah, they're, they're not exactly the same. But yeah, they're the kind of peoples are, are there their close cousins, because a lot of the things that go into what makes less drives work apply to solid state drives, but an excellent resource on the web is an ars Technica series, one of which one of the articles in that series is called solid state revolution. In-depth on how SSD's really work. By Lee Hutchinson. Yeah. And I can't say enough good things about this article. It really is a comprehensive approach to how solid say drives work and there's a little little attitude in the article. So it makes it it's not it's not dry. Reading. No. Well, are, are starting to goes is like that. It's also just a just as a note. It's also very technical in spots. So if you know, it's, it's they they're site, it takes a little bit different approach to technology than, than we do in a good way to different levels. It's, it's definitely more serious techy. Hey, if you if you're already familiar. Yeah, if you're already familiar with with computer architecture and data and that sort of thing it's an excellent resource. Otherwise, it may em- eighth feel a little advanced for someone who is just curious about this. But doesn't have any real background. Yeah. Yeah. However ex well worth. Yeah. Chris, and I will return in just a moment to talk more about solid state drives. But first, let's take a quick break. Most people admit that they've driven distracted and because of that, we've grown accustomed to seeing it in our daily lives. And because of that we feel awkward speaking up about it, but it's time all of that changed, if you see someone using their phone behind the wheel, it's okay to say something, let's get people to speak up when they see a driver thumbing through their phone to let everyone know that distracted driving is simply put not. Okay. I'm a pedestrian. I walk everywhere. And when I come up to Crosswalks every time it seems I'm seeing at least three or four drivers go by looking at their phones. Or maybe even taking a selfie and ninety three percent of drivers say, they don't approve of distracted driving. But eighty two percents still use their smartphones behind the wheel when it comes to distracted driving. We all know it's not okay. But most of us never say a word about it. So next time you see a driver using their phone, speak up. Distracted driving is reckless. Take. The pledge to indestructible driving at it can wait dot com. A message from AT and T. So getting back to solid state drives. So the idea of creating a solid, state drive is was really, really attractive because of that. Decreased.

"I went to this place. I did this, and I've seen this on business insider, and some other sites where like I went to the apple store, and it was a terrible experience that no, like you, you get you get ten people to go to ten stores ten times, and then you've built it results. And you present like an apple insiders enough of the keyboard, so kudos to them. But I feel like if Casey had been writing that back when she was at ars Technica that would have been like that would have been it apple would have had to change. The keyboard immediately wouldn't have been any opportunity to do anything else, and it's just. It's just become such a toxic social media thing. We're Casey nice. That is complaining about it, and anything that goes wrong is like it's like the end of and Janine, as we know it that they won't be able to get back on stage again until they can say, we haven't you keyword, that's my fear or my hope I that's, that's kind of how I'm feeling about it as well. It's that like you said, it's, it's, it's the name, and it's this idea like now that it's out there, you have to fix something. And I think for me. I tried to constantly be aware of again. I I've talked about before, but I think that impetus plays a large role in reporting or rather, I think, empathy should play a large role in reporting, and I think that in tech reporting it often does not. And it goes as far as. Sort of, to me kind of the opposite of empathy is a certain level of, of. Like a prideful belief that everything that happens to you is what happens to everyone, and that's not how it works. And so, when we think about the often the complaints that you hear are the are the folks who tend to. To sort of be the ones who share their complaints often and I should be clear here. This is not me saying that this is not a real problem or anything like that excuse me. Instead, I think it's important to keep in mind that, like we said earlier, we don't know exactly how many people have had this issue. We don't know how many people have not brought in the computer and had this issue, there, fixing it. And that's great. And whatever happens next happens next. But the idea that apple can't just maybe come up with the glory saying the best butterfly mechanism. They have to instead go. This is called the Caterpillar mechanism because we did a reverse minimum says, that's the only way to fix this design, and for everybody to be okay with it. Instead, they could have been innovating something else. But that's we've gotta figure out like if they say the word butterfly. No matter what happens. People are still going to think it's broken. Yeah. Even if it's just like ha ha. How were joking about it? You know, those tweets than go onto regular news sites, and people don't know, sort of sarcasm of it because they're not plugged enough. It just it all plays a role in turning what could potentially be a small story could be a big story again. I don't want to suggest that problem should not be fixed absently should, but the idea that this does I think it does have to be an inch name change, because it is talk sick. Then that just adds a complication to that is that doesn't need to be there so yeah. I don't know if we can all always keep in mind, and I have to remind myself of this, constantly that what I am experiencing is not necessarily, you know, the, the world that other people are experiencing and just because it's happening to me into my little following choice on Twitter, or what have you.

Epic Games Store Boss Takes Shot At Steam
"Has nearly two hundred fifty million registered players up from two hundred million in December with ten point eight million concurrence Sweeney told ars Technica half a fortnight players on PC have never used steam before. So if you had any doubts that epic was dominating with Ford night. Well, now, you don't if it's got what did you make of all of these demos in such? Well, the demo for the new features in the engine itself. This is the thing you always forget about epic lately. The epic news has always been, hey epic. They're the guys who run fortnight and are making a trillion dollars a minute. And they're dominating the industry now on what are video game maker is gonna do. And then you have the epic a game store, which is this. Hey, while they're gonna come in here and disrupt the market and make steam rethink its position, or at the very very least displaced this market around a little bit, which somebody's sort of been waiting for someone else to do for awhile steams head quite the.

And then there this company who is interested in running, you know, running this engine and the store sort of concurrently giving better deals to people who sign up for our that sign on to have their gains on their store and a better cut of the of the money like they're they're pushing lots of boundaries here. They also benefit in this new stadia world, we potentially could live in and cloud gaming and exiled salon because you're still building games. A lot of games are being built on on on real and unreal engine. And what Google talked about the other day. What I expect Microsoft talk about a couple of months only serves to bolster epochs and their position even more as the creator of the most versatile and realistic engine in the in the world because then that engine with as many tariff law flops as they're promising us will look amazing, no matter what your connection and. No matter how crappy your laptop is. So there's a lot of like synergy already happening there. And they've got this dominance with fortnight. They'll get this. This insurgents with the EPA game store. I it's it's fun to look at this because as a longtime unreal fan playing unreal. Back in the nineties playing unreal tournament to my eyes blood and the late nineties early two thousands. I have always loved epic as a company to see them in this weird new position, primarily on the shoulders of well, a two factors. Their incredible business engine the engine business rather. And then fortnight is crazy. And it just means that they are right up in front like there's we can have conversations about what the next generation looks like what like softer Google. We're going gonna do. It's just odd seeing epic right up there in the middle of all that and you can't avoid them. And they're there to stay and they're going to have a finger in all of this stuff. So I realize I'm kind of all over the map here. But I'm excited because that disruption and displacement there. Doing with their store is good. They did talk about for example. They're going to have

"Telling you to switch brands, you can you can update to the latest version of Internet Explorer, and it is going to be a world of difference. The only reason I could see anyone using. I e six is that they have a machine too old to run anything better. Yeah. Yep. Well, there are some the reasons to use legacy systems in a lot of cases have to do with specific tool. Yes. If you are let's say that you've got a corporation that corporation has an internal network an intranet internet and that in order to access the internet. Need to use a specific kind of browser because it was built to support a specific type of browser. Right. Then I can understand as well. Having Internet Explorer six I would pity that person because that is a miserable experience. But that could be the case, you could have a corporate system where let's say you need to go in and managed things like a digital time sheet for you have to request some vacation time or sick time. Or you're doing something like you're changing, your you might even be putting in things like an employee record into an a com- companies internet system, and the only way you can access it is through an outdated browser. There are plenty of systems that are like that. I've seen lots of them where they will tell you don't use any other version of any other browser because some of the functionality will not work if you use it, you might be able to see some stuff and access some of the stuff that's on the the the corporate internet, but you're not going to be able to get the full run of it. Unless you use this particular browser here. Yeah. The an article in ars Technica published on February first twenty twelve said that in in January Internet Explorer grew more, it's market share grew more than any other browser. In fact, chrome went down a little bit. But the biggest share of that growth for e was an IEP six so. So. People are gonna write in to tell you that that was really loud. Well, but anyway. It felt I understand the see the thing is the one of the things that's common about most of these technologies is that. There. There's some good reason why some people are going to want to use it. You know, perhaps you have a machine that just won't go any it won't run vista or windows, seven or windows eight you have a machine that that where are you have an intranet where you might need to use.

Yeah, they're cheap. There is a reason to use that the thing is that the majority of people still using I steaks and windows XP, the majority of those people probably are not doing it because their computers are lower because they are reliant on a legacy system.

"He there in welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host, Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer with how stuff works in the law of all things, tech and tech stuff. Listener, Matt asked. If I might do an episode or two or maybe three or four about the Migas series of personal computers. An Amiga has a pretty fascinating history with lots of ups and significant downs, and I've definitely touched on Amiga a few times in episodes about the early PC era, as well as the episodes of done about Commodore because Commodore acquired Amiga. But this computer line deserves its own set of episodes because that's it's not just fascinating from a technology standpoint, but it plays into a lot of other things that were happening in tech in the eighties that are also really important and interesting all on their own. So the story is likely going to take a few episodes to tell because of. How complex it is and how much the Migas story plays into these other stories of other companies and big events that are happening in the personal computer and video game industries. But I think that's part of what makes this hall fascinating because it gives you an opportunity to understand some of those other topics from a new angle within the context of Amiga. So I know it's going to be at least three episodes because I've got to to go right now. Probably going to be four. We'll see also if you really want a true deep dive into the history of meager because this is peanuts compared to what some folks have done, and if you wanna know more about all the people involved with Amiga, I have a recommendation for you. There's a website called ars Technica. It's one of my favorite websites, especially for technology and over at ars Technica a software developer named Jeremy Rymer has written what I consider to be the definitive history of Amiga. It's so far a twelve part article series. And the very first article published on August first, two thousand seven. The most recent part of this series published on March twenty ninth two thousand eighteen. So it's a series of articles that have spanned more than a decade. Now, when I pulled this twelve part series over into notes so that I could print it out, it was about seventy five pages and the word count was around forty two thousand five hundred words. So while I'm going to be talking about Amiga for several episodes and you still one more, that's where you need to go. There's also a couple of spinoff articles. I did not include in my notes, but they are a related to Amiga. So if you really fascinated, that's the place to go, I would say so the Amiga it was one of the lines of computers that emerged in the early nineteen eighties back before things had really shaken out so that they were. Essentially a face off between apple and I b m and then later on various IBM PC clone manufacturers and then later still Microsoft. So it was always apple versus IBM than IBM clones and then Microsoft in particular. But back in those days, there were a lot of different competing computers that were on the market. And I've talked about those in previous shows. There was the trash eighty or the TRS eighty. From radio shack slash Tandy, there was the TI ninety nine slash four from Texas Instruments.
