ICYMI: Zoom alternatives

"Spent the week looking at zoom alternatives. This was in response to what happened on Monday when Zoom went out for three and a half hours causing all those remote workers and all those students on their first day of school to start screaming what am I gonNa do what am I going to do? Well, there are several alternatives out there I don't think any of them are is easy to use in as smooth as as zoom, but if it ain't workin. Let's look at some of the other ones Google meet Webex skype Microsoft teams, facebook messenger rooms, gotomeeting whereby discord and Gypsy. Let's start with Google meat. That's the most heavily advertised. Google. Is really pushing it hard. It's kind of a bare bones, but it works APP it'll do you find the features are not there in meat like are in zoom for the best feature though is this automatic transcription feature which sounds pretty cool until you ask Google if you could save the transcripts and they say, no, you can't nor can they translate? Google will one day get their act together. Well, that's from Cisco is the best all around alternative it was originally a APP, the charge you money. Now, you can get a free version for. Beatings up to an hour after that, you have to start paying it has all the tools you want. It's pretty simple to use. So I really liked that one suggested check it out skype is the granddaddy. It's the one that started all always been confusing hard get people to connect with you on skype unless they have the APP and you have the APP and they you have to approve them and it's like the fate facebook buddy system where you have to welcome them in. Once they're welcome in it's great but the the the snag is connecting. Microsoft teams is built for corporations for enterprises and If you work at a company everybody in the company has Microsoft teams and since notes back and forth to each other video is sort of an afterthought. It works best if it's someone in your organization Facebook Messenger Rooms, this is facebook's zoom killer I don't think. So the idea is pretty good. You can have a private conversation with as many people as you want to have it with. But by fault that conversation goes to your news feed for everyone to see and everyone to join in, you're going to have to tweak some stuff in there to get it. To be private I'll skip that one goto meeting against solid. It's free for up to three participants that may not be enough for you whereby is very interesting. It's Norwegian company It's really best for one to one chats. The free version will only let you chat with up to four people. After that, you'll have to pay ten dollars a month, but overall I really liked it and sharing was really easy it's worth checking out discord is really aimed at gamers. They would like other people to start using it they. They say it's good for Yoga classes in school clubs, but there's been a lot of heat of. On on the service so I would I would use one of the other ones. Finally Gypsy. This is nerd paradise it's open source it's totally free. But it's so nerdy that if you WANNA, record your meeting they say great go to a live stream on youtube and then you can watch it there. That's not for me I'll stick with zoom again the all around. Best APP, when it works and if it doesn't work, I'm probably going for Webex.

"The go seen just got by gigantic cheating scandal and no I'm not talking about a bunch of nobody's getting caught hacking and the F. L. This happened at the highest level of competitive counter strike and three coaches were banned and on top of that, there's been a second investigation with up to potentially fifteen different cases of match-fixing happening at the semi pro level. It's been a rough month for couch. All right. So for a while now we've been streaming over a twitch dot TV slash the score, east sports with our talk show clouded, and if you love the stories that we cover here on donut mean well, you're GonNa love some of the conversations that we have over on twitch. We break down some of the biggest stories from East sports in streaming and we talk a little ship while we're at. So make sure you follow the channel and hit that notification button. So you know exactly when we go live and you can watch me get roasted for two hours straight the news. Of this cheating scandal broke day after esl one Cologne finished is published an investigation and they say quote we were made aware that by taking a combination of different steps of Bogin Cisco allows the coach of a team to become a spectator anywhere on the map unbeknownst to anyone else and so yeah, this coaching exploit as it's being called basically allows a coach to place themselves anywhere on the map and then swivel their camera from side to side and theoretically take any info that they gather from that and give it to their players. It's basically one giant broken cypher cam like in foward. Check this ship. Now, the bombshell at the heart of ESL's investigation is the fact that they've proved coaches from heroic MIB are and hardly talk use this exploit at multiple different ESL events leading up to esl one Cologne. Three teams competing at the highest level of counterstrike cheated in the investigation is said that the exploit violated quote section six point ten, five use of glitches and quote of esl's Rupel to be very clear is says that all of this happened prior to the start of esl one Cologne and that in fact, the exploit was actually patched out prior to the tournament started, and so these rulings are the result of a long investigation that just happened to be published at the same time that he also Cologne was finishing. The investigation also says at what tournament the coaches abused the exploit hardly coach Makino gun use the exploit at esl one road to Rio on six maps in three matches Perot's coach. Used the exploit at Dream Hack master spring in ten rounds on one map and Coach dead used the exploit at ESL one road to Rio in one round on one map on Thursday September fourth former NRP IP coach Pita admitted to abusing the coaching exploits during an EP L. Match Against Mel Sports back in two thousand eighteen and like I mentioned off the top these aren't just some punk teams cheating their way through F pl or some shit. This is the highest level of competitive counterstrike, its coaches and players competing amongst the best of the best and being found guilty of cheating in an online tournament with a prize pool of three hundred, fifty, thousand dollars on top of. That her minutes to win the European portion of one Cologne and they look fucking doing dominating some of the best teams in the world magic going from heroes to cheaters in the span of twenty four hours and the way we know about this exploit and the fact that coaches have been abusing it over the last few months is thanks to freelance East Sports, referees, me Kaos Lewinsky and Steve Dudin off they spent dozens of hours poring over thousands of different demos and meticulously documenting any time they thought the export was being used a big props goes out to those guys now unfortunately, coaches abusing this. Is, not limited to esl vets beyond the summit recently put out a statement that says basically that dead the coach for Mbr was found guilty of using this exploit and beyond the summit six in the most damaging part of the statement is where they said that dead explicitly knew how to fix the exploit and continue to abuse it anyway quote de demonstrated he knew how to fix the glitch while maintaining competitive integrity prior to see US summit six online by requesting technical timeout disconnecting and reconnecting which happened in the May first of match versus Mb. At, ESL. One Road to Rio and then from there, they go on to say that quote dead knowingly abused the coach spectator glitch to obtain an unfair competitive advantage and ours lower bracket round three match versus triumph at summit, six online on June. Twenty third and quote yeah. That whole give him the benefit of the doubt type thing goes out the window on this. Now, as you can imagine, the punishments handed down in the response online was both fast and fierce. Here's ESL's punishments. All three coaches rox hunting is banned from competing and coaching an ESL events for a year. Dead is banned for six months and hard legions. Makino gun is banned for wapping twenty four months or a full two years on top of that all three teams will retroactively be disqualified from the tournament in question while also forfeiting both their esl pro tour points and the prize money earned from those tournaments man you sell is not fucking around and. Beyond the summit band dead from the next to be Vance while also retroactively disqualifying maybe from beyond the summit six and they basically have to forfeit their prize money as well. Now, at the time of recording this, hardly June is the only team that's released a public statement on the matter and they basically said that they've dropped mechanica quote yesterday we received. A letter from ESL announcing the decision to ban or coach for two years. It was difficult for us to believe in Alexander's guilt but we had to conduct a personal investigation of this situation based on the results of internal discussions. We decided that the punishment from ESL was fair. We refuse to make any appeal and we are staying in the side of. The tournament organizers and and predictably lot of the responses from the scene on online. A whole bunch of you gotta be fucking kidding from pros to analysts to popular content creators. Of course, Brazilian fans everybody is thoroughly pissed off, and honestly people should be pissed off because while this exploit doesn't involve all hacks or a mocks or some other stereotypical idea of. It still seriously undermines the competitive integrity of CS go

Each sports betting in legal settings has slowly been growing over the past six or so years, but the pandemic push everything forward.

The main operator making sure eastward competitions are fair from abetting perspective is the East Sports Integrity Coalition or ES. I see today they announced investigation into fifteen. Separate reported cases of match-fixing. In the Ese a mountain dew league. This investigation has actually been going on for over a year now, and findings are expected to be released within the next four weeks. It seems like they're definitely going to find at least a few cases. This has potentially far-reaching consequences when I buy power was found match-fixing back in two thousand fifteen, the team received a permanent ban valve doesn't play around when it comes to this type of thing and neither do the operators of the major cisco competitions, and that's not the only issue in the world right now, a few coaches have also found exporting bugs to cheat for their teens. The coaches of made in Brazil heroic and hard legion have all received bands ranging from a few months to a few years depending on how many times they were found to be cheating the bulk effectively let than spectate from other places on the map, they shouldn't be able to see. They then relayed the other players positions to the players on their team and use that as an advantage. These sheets were done in major competitions dream Hack in esl. And Modern Times group the parent company adultery. Mac and ESL stepped into these bands of place. Then the I see came in impose those same bands for a wide variety of is competitions going further than just the events that fall under the modern times group umbrella. For now, it's just the coaches of those three teams, but this is an evolving story. Now, the bug has been exposed community members are searching to see if anyone else has exploited it so far no players have found be complicit in the cheating, but that could change as well.

Zoom Stock Skyrockets Over 40% After Blowout Quarter, And It Expects To Keep Rising

"But we start off with Zoom Whiz Bang. However, you slice of zooms tear stage of gigantic rally after posting a blowout earnings quarter, it's forty percent jump today now gives it a market cap bigger than lows, ups, IBM and city. Group and it is about three quarters the size of Cisco, which, of course, is a similar product and eighty three times the revenue. So what do you make of this giant move today? What do you say? Well, it's pretty incredible. I don't know how often we've been able to see a stock actually jumped by forty percent in a single day but it ran into earnings. We've seen nothing but bullish paper in here for the entire year of two, thousand and twenty, they've been buying expecting move into the upside and it's been delivering and the interesting thing. I. Think Mel is when you look at the numbers. Yes the numbers were astounding when you look at the revenue numbers and the earnings beat and all the rest of those things it's incredible but I think what what stands out for me is that I look at this company and you just wonder there's not a short squeeze going on here. oftentimes, we see talks like this make these kind of moves and a lot of that might be a short squeeze. It's not a very large short position. So I think this is just an amazing stock. Continued and people look at this stock and they think to themselves is this stock going to be around after the pandemic and I think so far people are thinking yes and it is a verb. So I think for all those reasons, this is a stock that people better be careful of. You WanNa short this name still

Let's Talk Addiction & Recovery

A Conversation with "Blackout Girl"

"Jennifer store is the author of blackout girl. It is a memoir published by Hazel in twenty eleven and it's about to have its second printing. Read the book and You won't doubt the power of addiction in the day to day life of a young woman, the subtle persuasion of alcohol, the pervasive violent consequences, one drink too many and the sheer luck some my call at grace to survive at all Jennifer Storm. Welcome to let's talk. Thank you so much for having me. You know one of the dynamics of our mission at Hazelton Betty Ford is that we published books and we publish your book in twenty eleven it's done. Very very well in fact, it's about to have its second printing. What does that mean to have a second printing of a book? It's such an honor truly to not have the story come out once and reach an audience but for it to have a whole new audience to touch I, it's it's a wonderful experience. It feels more relevant today than actually when I did publish it unfortunately just because of what we're seeing with sexual violence and addiction, it's still dominating headlines. The headlines more than it ever has. So it feels really timely and on the heels of the metoo movement I know there are a lot of people that are suffering in silence and so my goal is to get to those people and we'll come back to that in a couple of minutes. Cisco back into your own. Life. For people who haven't read your book or no the story Tell us a little bit about your introduction to alcohol and what happened as a result. So. I came from a mother and a father who both came from very abusive alcoholic homes and they of found themselves in high school and really vowed to to get away from that and so they married young my father went off to Vietnam my mother he returned my mother started having US Children's I'm one of three I'm the youngest and they did their best to keep us away from all of those family members that were heavily. Addicted at the time, they had their own demons, and of course, their own traumas that they never dealt with and for the most part though they did a really great job trying to raise us I really was only exposed to alcohol when my parents would have it at family gatherings, and then a friend introduced me to alcohol when I was twelve years old and I had my first beer which literally led to ten beers and I drank. The first time I picked up a drink and I write in the book that I it never felt that thirsty before my life and I blacked out that night and subsequently a came to well being raped, and so I had this horrific introduction to alcohol this very addictive introduction alcohol and yet it was the first thing I turned to to deal with the trauma of that incident. When you were sexually assaulted a home. was that your bottom as it related to alcohol it was the start actually. So it's what really propelled me into continuing to drink because. I had all this shame and this guilt in this anger and rage that I didn't know what to do with it and I was young and my parents coming from their own alcoholic abusive homes didn't have the coping mechanisms to deal with their own stuff. Let alone now watching their daughter go through this horrific trauma. So I started drinking you know and this was in the eighties. So alcohol was in everyone's homes. We all had the you know the liquor cabinet, and so it was really easy for me to access What happened to me led to the breakdown really up my. Parents marriage, and so the supervision and our home started to deteriorate my parents divorced by the time I was fifteen and so I was kind of left to my own devices as where my older brothers and drank alcoholic and that gave way to starting to use pills I would do anything to numb the pain I was having and so if it meant alcohol, it meant pills it meant marijuana that led me to LSD, which then quickly led me to cocaine but everything every single time I drank the result was always the same I drank I drank to excess I blacked out. and. So the introduction of cocaine when I was around fifteen sixteen helped kind of. Sober me up. If you will I always say that parentheses it would keep me from blacking out. It would allow me to retain control because when I was putting myself in situations where I was blocking out of course, then I was vulnerable to more violence and more abuse and I didn't want that. So the cocaine and the alcohol then became this really damaging codependent relationship and. And how long did that codependent relationship work before? You had your bottom. So eventually I turned to crack cocaine at age seventeen and I had my bottom at age twenty two and I it was brutal and I attempted to take my life. I didn't have any hope I was completely destitute. I didn't see a way out of my addiction I couldn't go a day without being high and being. Completely out of my mind and that got to a point where it felt so. That I wanted out and I didn't like I said, I didn't have any hope. So tried to kill myself and By. Some measure of grace I am here today and I woke up in hospital bed the next day and I. I had sliced my wrists pretty severely to the extent that of one was bandaged to to hold it together done so much damage and it was a miracle and the doctor looked at me and said, it's a miracle that you're live and I was in a psych ward because that's that's where they. Put you was nine, hundred, Ninety, seven and an intake officer came in and kind of started going through the questions and she looked at me and said you, you're not. You're a drug addict do you want treatment for that? Because you you shouldn't be here? Do you want to go to Rehab and I said, yes, it was the first time I had made the admission that my solution was actually my problem. And then you got treatment, did I went to a traditional twenty eight day treatment facility in Allenwood Pennsylvania by all accounts a great facility I they didn't they weren't trauma informed which that's the term that I would come later to understand and really appreciate but they didn't take into consideration the underlining trauma that I had dealt with. It was solely twelve steps addiction recovery. We're not going to deal with these outside issues right now you're here to get clean and sober and that worked for me my first night and Rehab came to share her experience strength. And hope much like I do now and she had said something that profoundly impacted me and she said that her secrets kept her sick and that has been my mantra since that day in that Rehab and it told me that all this stuff that I was running from all these bad things that had happened to me and these pains and these traumas these were the causation. These were the reasons and I needed to deal with these if I really wanted to be clean and sober for the rest of my life, and so I did that work on my own. The trauma work did yes. which point you decide that you're story. was worth telling. In a memoir. I started writing that night in Rehab writing has always been a source of of empowerment and healing for me. Even after the rape I have a book of poems that that I wrote I would stay up all night i. now know that that's post traumatic stress disorder I couldn't sleep.

Big Tech CEOs Testimony Before Congress

"Today was the day as I record these words the big tech CEO's are still testifying before Congress. So I'm going to have to do a summary of what I've seen just in the first couple of hours or so and leave some of the juicier question and answer back and forth for tomorrow. I up a note on the format that we've been seeing. Yes. All of the CEOS were testifying remotely. They were using Cisco Webex as the video conferencing tool and it seemed to work fairly well at least right until this very moment as I turned off the stream to go into the booth to record this, they took a ten minute recess because apparently one of the witnesses. was having an issue with their stream or feed, and I'm wondering if it might have been Jeff Bezos because at least thus far were almost an hour and a half into the testimony and he hadn't been asked a single question. Anyway back to the whole idea of testifying remotely if I were going to do one of those rate, my video call backgrounds reports. Bezos look like he was in some sort of executive boardroom, lots of tasteful Chomsky's behind him. Look like he was in a conference room at a high end law firm I couldn't tell what Zuckerberg was sitting in front of it looked like closed vertical blinds almost like I don't know some sort of like a bunker like if you're battening down your house for a Hurricane Tim, Cook was in front of some sort of tasteful plant trough though he was clearly working off an ipad pro. Let's start off with what the Fab four had to say in their opening statements. Amazon's Jeff bezos underscored Amazon's job creation, its investments in social causes and its role in supporting small and medium-sized businesses. And made the case that Hey Amazon is just a tiny competitor in a huge global market quote. The global retail market we compete in is strikingly large and extraordinarily competitive Amazon accounts for less than one percent of the thousand five, trillion dollar global retail market and less than four percent of retail in the US unlike industries that are winner take all there's room in retail for many winners for example. More than eighty retailers in the US. Alone earn over one billion dollars in annual revenue like any retailer we know that the success of our store depends entirely on customer satisfaction with their experience in our store every day Amazon competes against large established players like target Costco Kroger and of course, Walmart a company more than twice Amazon size, and while we have always focused on producing a great customer experience. For retail sales done primarily online sales initiated online are now in even larger Growth Area for other stores Walmart's online sales grew seventy four percent in the first quarter and customers are increasingly flocking disservices invented by other stores. Amazon still can't match at the scale of other large companies like curbside pickup and in store returns and quote alphabets. Soon, Darpa, Chai, said that Google also operates in a highly competitive. Market and that it's free products benefit the average American quote. A competitive digital ad marketplace gives publishers, advertisers, and therefore consumers an enormous amount of choice pichai stated, for example, competition and ads from twitter instagram comcast and others has helped lower online advertising costs by forty percent over the last ten years with these savings pass down to consumers through lower prices in areas like travel and real estate Google faces strong. For search queries for many businesses that are experts in those areas. Today's competitive landscape looks nothing like I. Did five years ago let alone twenty one years ago when Google launched its first product Google search people have more ways to search for information than ever before and quote. Tim Cook of Apple said that the APP store has opened the gate wider for software developers. Also, apple doesn't have dominant market share quote as much as we believe, the iphone provides the best user experience. We know it is far from the only choice available to consumers Cook said after beginning with five hundred APPs today the APP store hosts more than one point seven, million, only sixty of which are apple software. Clearly, if apple is a gatekeeper, what we have done is open the gate wider we want to get every APP we can on the store, not keep them off and quote. And facebook's mark. Zuckerberg said well, but he said a thousand times before that facebook knows it has more work to do on things like fighting misinformation and that you know companies aren't bad simply because they're big. And he took pains to point out that facebook is an American success story quote although people around the world use our products. FACEBOOK is a proudly American company. He said, we believe in Values Democracy Competition Inclusion and free expression that the American economy was built on many other tech companies share these values, but there's no guarantee our values will win out for example China. Is Building its own version of the Internet focused on very different ideas and they are exporting their vision to other countries as Congress and other stakeholders. Consider how antitrust laws support competition in the US. I believe it's important to maintain the core values of openness and fairness that have made America's digital economy, a force for empowerment and opportunity here and around the world and quote. In his opening remarks, the chairman of the Committee David. Sy-. Selena Rhode. Island. Laid out three areas of inquiry that the was scheduled to delve into at least in questioning from the Democratic Congress folk more on that in A. Quitting CNBC, each platform allegedly serves as a quote bottleneck for a key channel of distribution and quote the platforms allegedly used their control over digital infrastructure to Sir Vail other companies, their growth business activity, and whether they might pose a competitive threat and use that information to maintain their own power and third the platforms allegedly abused their control over current technologies to extend their power through tactics like self referencing their own products. Quote. Prior to the cove nineteen pandemic, these corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. Silly said in the wake of Covid nineteen however, they are likely to emerge stronger and more powerful than ever before, and he concluded by saying quote, our founders would not bow before a king nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and quote? But as I say, while this was labelled as an anticompetitive antitrust inquiry, it seems like the Republican Congress folk were primarily interested in probing alleged bias against conservative users. In fact, Jim Jordan. One of the ranking Republican representatives spent most of his opening remarks railing against. which if that continues would basically be exactly what all of the CEOS in the talking head boxes would be hoping for right lots of distraction and no real spotlight on them. In fact, a lot of the most heated questions directed at a company that's not even present. We'll see if that continues but I have to say straight off Chairman Sicily and was very specific targeted sharp questions. He kept interrupting folks when they started to stray into doublespeak and the very nature of the questions from him and others at least so far. This wasn't like previous congressional hearings we've covered where the congress folk didn't seem to even understand the businesses they were investigating, and maybe that was because I don't know if you saw the woman sitting very prominently very obviously behind Mr. Cecil lean. Let me let the Washington Post fill you in on who that was quote as a twenty eight year old law student Lena Con penned a twenty four thousand word article for Yale Law Journal titled Amazon's antitrust. Paradox. The article described how US antitrust law isn't equipped to deal with tech giants such as Amazon. Even as the company has made itself as essential to commerce in the twenty first century in the way that railroads and telephone systems had in the previous century con now works as counsel for the antitrust subcommittee she has worked with Sylvain to develop his case against the tech giants including Amazon and quote. As I said, the questioning is continuing as I speak these words in fact I just heard that they came back from their recess. The whole thing did kick off hour late only getting started at one PM, eastern? So I don't think it'll be done before for five PM at least. So again, I'll put together a summary of all of the juicy exchanges happening now for tomorrow.

CS:GOs Latest Patch is a Disaster

"Properly. Understand what trusted mode is why is causing problems I spoke with Gamer. Who has a background in cybersecurity and run something called the over watched police department, which is a discord server where you can report cheaters different F ps, games, and he'll do his best to get them banned. We've spoken to him a bunch in the past for cheating centric. Don't me episodes? So I think what they're trying to stop a lot of the pace thing that's going on in Seacot cs go is actually like if if? If you wanted to create sheets and you also want to cheat developers. Hey I. I WANNA create sheets, learn how did it? They will tell you do then see us go because enciso. It's extra really easy to create sheets. There's a lot of tools out there. Basically, he says, what trusted mode is trying to do is also its biggest problem namely stomping third party software from communicating with. CS Go. So if you've lovie asked discord or. Or invidia freestyle graphics filters open while trying to run CS go. You'll be met with a message that tells you close any third party software into relaunched es go entrusted mode. You literally can't run the game with something as simple as spotify open in the background. Here's a quote from the longer blog post dedicated to trust it mode quo. Some applications interact with CISCO BY INJECTING DIRECTLY INTO THE GAME process. This method is used by common. Common applications as well as cheats. We can vastly improve prevention by restricting injections altogether as opposed to determining whether an injection is a cheat or not, and Gamer doc says, the valve is essentially saying that because hackers are hiding cheating software within normal in usually safe third party software bounce, just GONNA ban everything from trying to connect to see us go. It's not an issue because the reason why it's blocked, it's because cheaters are. Really using these fumble softwares. Like they have some vulnerable locations in the software. So S, for instance, you're able to hook onto BS. driver. Or whatever, and be able to cheat through ob s, or you could cheat true nvidia stuff or you could true cheat through discords overlay. That's the reason why they're blocking and it's because it's not the fault of the Anti Sheet team. It's the fault of the company not removing these horrible things. Now, trusted mouth doesn't specifically tell you what third party software is potentially raising red flags. So unless you're literally only running CS, go have fun trying to figure out what applications you need to close. Game Reduc described trusted mode as glorified PR move in response to Van Guard, which is. Is Right Games as intrusive anti cheat system that they rolled out with the release? Of Valerie. He said that vanguard operates at the colonel level of your computer's architecture, which basically means it's a level of your computer software that the General Gamer. Rarely if ever has to deal with in according to Gamer Doc, it's here at the kernel level where you'll find the most sophisticated in hardest spot cheating software, and again according to him, Cisco's trusted mode doesn't. Doesn't work on this level at all instead operating a more surface level basis, which he's told us in the past does almost nothing to stop hacking or cheating software from getting into your computer and listen these days. Intrusive. Anti Cheat Systems are out there face. It has one vanguard one, it's not like vow doesn't know they have to go deeper nick repeaters architecture to actually stop cheating, which is why Gamer Docs speculates that trusted mode is more of. Of a glorified PR moved than actually a piece of software that's going to keep people safe. The best solution like in any like oganization like that's has an anti cheat think colonel is like the best solution to combat the Cheetah's at least from my perspective like seen Van. Gart completely annihilate every single copy paster on just like private sheets, even like as you can see like the to private to pro players who got bonds for cheating. And all dot could have stuff like they are really aggressive with their anti cheat and it's really working. He also told me that within an hour of trusted mode going live hackers had found a way around it. He even sent me screen shots and links to forums, hackers, and cheaters were openly talking about how simple the system was to hack. So yeah, trusted mode hasn't seemed to stop people. People from cheating and it just seems to have made things worse for people who just WanNa play competitive on top of the third party software issue players have complained about frame rate drops when doing something as simple as moving your mouse across the screen and according to both valve and Gamer Doc. This is a side effect of trusted mode in the Anti Third Party software stance that valve. Valve is taking, but it's also a problem that they're actively looking to fix quote. Sometimes, applications attempt to inject during low level windows, mouse events, which results in noticeable performance degradation. When the most moved, we're testing a mechanism that has virtually zero overhead, even the most zealous injecting software. Once this new approach ships players should no longer notice a performance impact from running entrusted mode even when moving. Moving the mouse and quote after the go community complained that this thing was a China pain in the ass vowed pushed out to new patches, the latest of which went live on July twenty third in it. They talk about fixing performance issues related to trusted mode, and they provided a temporary fix to allow third party software to communicate with. See US go cope a new compatibility launch option. OPTION DASH allow third party software is provided to allow third party software to access the CS. Go game process. So basically if you punch that line of code into your steam preferences prior to launching see go apparently third party software now works with the game, but my question is doesn't this defeat. The whole point of hackers are using third party software to cheat and see us go why. Why would you let people turn off the option that apparently stops that now, valve has given players the option to completely turn off trusted mode and play in the old version of CS go. But there's a catch quote if you would like to play while using third party software that interacts go launch with the DASH untrusted launch option note that in this case, your trust score may be. Be Negatively affected and quote that last sentence stands out to me, your trust score may be negatively affected. Remember Trust score is one of the ways vow figures out who to Q. Within matchmaking. So if you play trust turned off, that score could be negatively impacted even if you've done nothing wrong. Okay. But where does all of this leave us? Well, the good news is that valve is. is working on fixes, which they noted in their July twenty third patch note blog post, and while this definitely won't fix ups goes cheating. Problem Gamer doc does think that this trusted mode is a part of valves larger long-term plan to fight back against it. I think personally becomes just a marketing thing. It was just calmed out some of the players because of the huge influx of cheaters. And this influx of change that's not going to stop belief aimed to increase an increase unless something major happens.

At least 47 arrested in Seattle protests that police declared a riot

"Protesters against police violence packed the streets of Seattle again this weekend, and on Saturday, things turned violent on Capitol Hill Seattle police declared a riot and arrested forty seven demonstrators. Annika Carlson is a public defender in snohomish. County, and she was at Saturday's protest as a legal observer with the national lawyers guild decked out in a bright green hat invest that are well known to Seattle police. Carlson told me she believes her team of observers was targeted by PD, so I was actually sort of off on the intersection with maybe a I'd say most fifteen to twenty people around me. several press people several clearly marks medic people myself a couple. Other observers none of us engaged anything that could be misconstrued as as interfering at all. When they began pepper, spraying and throwing We're blessed balls, which are essentially sort of flash grenades with pepper spray inside them throwing those and one of those directly hit and burst on my ankle. So cutting over mangoes, tearing through my clothes and All of that. And what did you think in that moment i? Mean it, you say, burn through your clothes. What was that like in that moment I actually honestly thought that they had broken ankle. It's that kind of thing, so so the personally for it was incredibly shocking. For twenty years and never had to happen to me before I'm in twenty years all over the country and never had that happened to me before, and you say it was shocking. You don't recall anything that happened in the moments leading up to that that would have led you to think that's. Keeping their use of the forest, so I was standing there with my camera videotaping what was happening? We as a policy, do not engage. Obviously, we don't speak with officers. We don't speak with protesters. We you know so I was standing there silently, clearly marked as an observer, fairly simply filling the use by multiple different officers of multiple different tools that point, but I think there's you know several videos out there that show, just a wide use, the at that point to move the crowd, and absolutely indiscriminately firing into the crowd. Toss the crowd. Annika you out. There is a legal observer, but you weren't alone. Can you tell us more about what happened and who was injured? I was there as the supervisor of about twenty other Ellos, legal observers stars who were there throughout the day and I. WanNa. Mention that it's not just myself who was injured while doing this that there were multiple reports from other observers on the ground of injuries that they were suffering throughout the day, multiple observers, having blackball thrown specifically in their direction being. Being targeted in that regard, multiple os having officers, either use their hands directly or bike to push them out of the way one of our observers sprayed at close proximity in the face with pepper spray so many issues throughout the day that I started to lose track of of who was getting injured as they were there, observing and again I want to. Remind folks that we were told that we would be safe while we were there and that we were clearly identified. It was a violent day on Saturday and Annika Seattle police have said that nearly sixty officers were injured on Saturday that rocks and bottles were thrown at them that they were hit with projectiles. They've posted a number photos of what appear to be a variety of injuries. And eventually they declared a riot, and so I'm wondering from your perspective. What you saw was the response by police. Saturday was necessary and proportional. I would say that it absolutely wasn't necessary or proportional, and in fact I think their response is essentially fueled things into a bigger and bigger situation that they escalated every step of the way in terms of using force in terms of going after people all things that made the situation worse and in terms of the officers injuries. Some of the injuries pictures I've seen are consistent with the injury that I have from speedy myself and I think it's important for people to understand that the officer speaking about explosives being thrown at them. oftentimes you can see in the videos. It's the explosives that they're throwing at the crowd. That is bouncing back at them. I saw several officers drop explosives onto the themselves that they were doing things It's that indiscriminate use of those items in the first. First place that brings them into the picture. The police brought those weapons to the scene, and then through those weapons out into the crowd. And when it bounced back, they were injured I. also think it's important to know that we're talking about police themselves who are in full riot gear throwing those same items they're now saying hurt them out into a proud that is not dressed for riot. People who are wearing t shirts and shorts, and that sort of thing. Annika, so many people are following news coverage of these protests, but they haven't been there in person to see for themselves so as someone who's been there on the ground. What do you want people to know about what's happening? But I think what's important to know is that it is a situation in which everybody in the crowd is being punished the same way by PD so regardless of what individual protesters are doing regardless of what actually has been happening by Cisco individuals. People who? We don't know why they're there what they're doing It's sort of a Kintu if you know that one kid in the class sheets on exam and you're failing the entire class and the situation. Individual protesters are doing certain things, and the entire crowd is bearing the punishment of that. Annika Carlson is a public defender in snohomish county and a legal observer with the national lawyers. Guild Annika. Thanks for taking the time to talk with us today. Thank you reading.

I think for a lot of us who were used to going on the road and you Kinda have a couple of days of shows, and then you'd come home, and you'd get some work done now. It's Kinda just this unending, just free time the whole. And so I know some people are their sleep. Schedules are getting really weird. You have do set routines for yourself or you can have. Whatever goes he I wish I could have by. Looting exit think I'm too lazy. Don't. I used to wake up at nine am. and. Be Productive. Do Yoga exercises and stuff but in this few months. Go. Debate I. Think. Eight am. A SWEEP PM, so it's completely sweets. That's yeah, and it's like. No one's there to tell you to do something at a specific time. Right and you don't have to catch a flight. How were you like that when you were younger? When you were a kid? Because when I was a kid, I would do that. I would stay up all night long. Sleep through the day, and then as I got older, it kind of flipped, and now if I, if I sleep too late I I, just feel weird. Where were you like as a kid where you out all night? I think I was awake for like 'til sleep end sneaking deer living gloom. Stevie after mom's went, bed or something, yeah. So, you knew. The red back exactly. Are you finding this time now. Are you like what what mind state or you and are you being creative? Are you writing a lot of music? Are you doing other stuff or are you? I know a lot of people are finding it hard to be creative and to get work done right now. I've tried to make new music. 'cause obviously I have no Gig tale, maybe October. By. My mind is just like stock. Just like I've stuck at home so. It's too hard for me. I don't know how. People get doing like Oh. Qiuping is the I I'm. Do Make Music and I'm like. Oh! That's. All. Right. Yeah Yeah I. I mean I. I'm kind of in between those two. I guess I've been able. I'm reading some music, but then. I think it's hard because it's sort of like. What are we writing music four right now right because we're not gonNA. Go play at a show anytime soon. And in that way I sort of freeing in that you can experiment, and you can try different things, but then it's all yeah for me. It gets overwhelming. Thinking about will what is what is the point of? And, you said you still may be an October. That would be like the earliest. Hopefully 'cause I. Suppose Stevie in Texas this month. By the successfully. Includes the Colona. So Echo postponed d'albert but now. Everything, being Kinda. Collapsed again so who knows he's GonNa have been on the. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's it's a weird time in this country at to be to be doing anything, but especially to be doing what we're doing because there's so much uncertainty. And even for me. Like I. Don't know how I would feel going to play a show right now I. Think I would be nervous for myself and then I'd also be nervous that you know. I was creating this atmosphere where other people could get sick, it's. An you know, and of course nobody because it's America. Nobody's really doing what they're supposed to. Nobody's taking care.

Woman who killed her 5-year-old son gets 35-year prison term

"A 35 year prison sentence has been given to a crystal leg woman who beat her five year old son to death. W BB EMS Jim Goode is joins us live now with the story. Cisco McHenry County Judge Robert Will. Graham says he weighed several factors in sentencing Joanne Cunningham, who must serve the entire 35 year term, with no chance for early release. The evidence presented here indicates that she repeatedly struck her son on the head with a metal shower sprinkler. Took him out of the shower while he was still alive, lacked him alone in his room, and then a J tragically died from the after effects of blunt force trauma Will Brand says he also considered Cunningham struggles with drug abuse and the fact that she said she didn't intend to kill her son age a friend in sentencing her to 35 years rather than the maximum of 60 that prosecutors had sought. A J's father, who is also charged, pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial in the McHenry County jail. Prosecutors say A J died after he was beaten several times at the family's crystal like home in April of last year, with his parents, claiming at first that he had disappeared.

Don't @ Me: This CS:GO Player Faked His Own Death

"Sunday. June, fourteenth at twitter account with the handle. Handle CS rough, tweeted out quote, rip me Ho. He was a good kid. It really sucks. What happened and quote the person he was talking about was his friend who goes by the name Mi-ho a see us go player with a long history applying playing on ESPN now. If you guys aren't Cisco, heads, ESPN is basically a platform that for a price gives you access to better servers in a more robust anti cheat system. Also has its own amateur league system. Where you in a five stack can sign up to play organized. Go well rubs. Tweet was pretty low key in me. Ho is by no means well known in the go seen. This news quickly spiraled out of control. Because the reality is me, Ho wasn't dead Yep me Ho faked his death, but why he did. It is a little more complicated than it seems, and we'll get to that in just a second I promise now I've deemed back and forth with rough and to be clear. He did not know this news fake when he originally tweeted, he legitimately thought his friend had died and was told this news by. By people he trusted eventually. The news caught the attention of Oso. Dank on top of having a fantastic handle works a support staff for rank s for Ese a and if you guys didn't know, rank s is basically as highest level of competition, a ton of pros past and present got their start there and I actually talked. Dank was sad to hear the news about me. Hope passing especially because he just talked two hours before he got the news, and then around two thirty is when I saw the first tweet from his teammate Ashley from his friend, or whatever it was saying that he died. Was You know in a car accident etcetera? So I'm shocked him on twitter and ask them like you know. What like you know what happened in like? I'm sorry you're that etc and told me that his. Cousin said he got hit by a drunk driver in the in any died. So that's all I had to go on. So I made that tweet of mine, just 'cause. It sucks to see people you know. Pass away in the community, and it's like you know it's. Never a thing to see soon after that people notice that me, Ho was playing ceus. Go on, ESPN A and well. Yeah, he wasn't dead and once Oh. Dang found fat out. He tweeted out that he was disappointed. Such news was played for laughs. Now here's where the why he did. It comes back into play, and it is a little confusing. After people found out that me wasn't debt and was playing ESPN. League matches with his friends multiple East sports news outlets broke above the situation and the article state that me Ho allegedly faked his death in order to get a thirty day. Ban on his. Account and they attributed this fact to him, but that's not true, and here's why first off after the story blew up me. Ho tweeted out that he didn't do it to get around the thirty day ban, but because him and his friends thought it would be funny on top of that. That's not how the sea community guidelines work. Basically me, hope is given the thirty day ban for threatening another player while competing in rank. Rank s qualifier match. This was his fourth banned for threatening another player in his eighth GSA band since two thousand seventeen, and it was this latest thirty day offense that also Dang was talking to me Ho about hours before he died, he reached out to me through discord, and like asking me about the ban, and like asked me about multiple things like I'm not like I'm not gonNA. Sit there and argue with somebody like. I didn't really talk much more after that I just I told them like why he was and what he said. And what you know, the reason is now. If you banned ESPN qualifier, you are still allowed to compete at the league with the team that you signed up with and I know that sounds confusing, but basically why does it this way comes down to a matter of scheduling? It only applies really severe. Bans like Dan Abrasion you can't play league batches, but with like community conduct violations where like you get banned from a Pug or saints on a platform like we still allow us to play league matches or does because. There would there would be a lot of scheduling problems if if that wasn't allowed so the idea that me faked his own death in order to get around thirty day, ban on his account makes no sense because under Ese community guidelines me, hope was still allowed to play an as league, which is exactly what he did, which ultimately how he got caught, and now we've ended up here. Okay, so we've gone this far, and we haven't heard from me. Ho yet well DMZ him. Asking how this all started UAE, he decided to fake his own death, and basically he told me that he was peer pressured into it by A. Teammate, and yeah, he apparently signed to Valentim, called trillium, and he's making racks so good for him I guess now according to Oso Dank he doesn't think me. Hosts going to get another fan because this happened on twitter and had nothing to do with the sea, so as me, weights out his latest band, continuing to play CS, Goer Valor and it's safe to say that this story is pretty

"How the heck did we get up here with the SNP five hundred hitting all time highs? Dow hitting its high for the year. If you're gaining two hundred forty nine point say, it'd be point nine five percent. Nasdaq woes point eight percent, and more importantly, does this balk at have what it takes to keep powering higher car. This of what happens with the president with trade with the Federal Reserve just hit the fundamentals of individual companies, which is what we do best in Kramer. I think it's worth wondering what might happen if we stay on even cue we need to know if the market's gotten too expensive. If it's got more room to run all, especially with oil, having a monster runoff just today because of tension with the rim. So let's zoom in on the top ten performances.

So we understand how we got up here, and whether it is dangerous, whether it safe, they sense number one is Microsoft. It's eight trillion dollar household. Dave with the stock up nearly thirty five percent year today at these levels now this stock trades at twenty six times next year's earnings estimates, sadly, that's lofty. It's a pretty rich valuation, which is unfortunate because we own Microsoft by travel trust. And always have to be concerned that it's moved up too much on the other hand. The Cup is a habit of blowing away. These estimates wouldn't be my first choice of these top ten to go higher here. I think it's quality coming it just I think that the stock may have gotten. A little head of itself. No sin. That does happen. Number two. Cisco a thirty two percent. Now this brand new Cisco people. The company has changed radically under the leadership of Chuck Roberts. The new Cisco is not just a networking company. It's also a play on the internet of things and cybersecurity, the largest cyber security company in the world. Just within the housing Cisco, and it is doing best of all, even with everything it has going to stock. It sells it seventeen times says it's at a discount to the average stock in the SNP.

Twenty eight times earnings. Honestly, I prefer American Express, even though it from credit risk were MasterCard, which is slightly more expensive, but has official growth rate.

"Decreased by twenty percent of the world's unicorns which future job creators, etc. Are start up and being is a naming in terms of it in it's primarily in six geographies where ninety percent of the US venture capital goes into. So how do we change that as a country is very doable. Now to your second question, always loved taking on big companies and with my startups when I select which wants to do and I get the pick of the litter, you could argue, I deserve that or not, but the venture capitalist uses eight years a portfolio, John, you knew how to skill companies. You gotta help them operations. You know how to develop CEO's. Give you very favorable terms. So I do get the pick, but my goal is for each one of them to be number one in their segment of the industry, they go after and I've never worried about taking on the giants union at Cisco. We took on companies like Intel like IBM and the initial days we took on the Nortel's loosens the Alcatel's and what happens is companies get bigger, they get slower. They often get crossway with government. They forget that you must give back is will take in terms of profitability, etc. So I actually think companies are more challenged now in terms of his tech for gooders tech for bad in this country. Never before and segment of it might be that it stifles segments of startups. I've actually found the reverse. Most of the innovation is coming out of startups today when you have a spark cognition partnering with a Boeing Boeing's very innovative company, but they're doing a fifty fifty joint venture on the next generation unmanned aircraft and how you do the systems to maintain this a company with two hundred people. Down in Texas, or there's another company in New York, basically artificial intelligence and all of a sudden, the biggest companies in the US are working with that company on how they transform their business. They went from a million four run rate last year to over seventy million this year. So I would actually argue that startups will be where most innovation happens and that as long as there's a level playing field they can do well. Now, to your point, maybe venture capital was shy away from an investing in area that might be to direct with an Amazon or to direct with Facebook, etc. But about the time that large players think they're invulnerable, they are very vulnerable. All right on that. No, we're going to come back in a minute. We're talking with John Chambers. He's the former CEO and chairman assists go.

It's the water that refreshes like no other brand, try it. Smart water vapor distilled for purity, electrolytes for taste. We're here with John chamber. He's the former CEO and chairman of Cisco where it was forever right? John forever. Why would we did this together? He's the author of connecting the dots leadership lessons at a start where we're talking about where startups are now. So talk about the things and then I want to get to your leadership lessons. Sure. What can the government do right now assess this government right now or the past two administrations will.

That's your two factor indications safe and secure, but people are figured out how to hack it. You can have the you can, you know to pick it the same. You can transfer the your text messages to somewhere else. The heck that was announced vetted just this week was done. Exactly like that. The two factor authentication are using some as was hacked. What do does it solve that? Like even app, you gotta push notification, you've gone heck it is. So it's, it's, it's interesting technology. It's very, very, very useful for Cisco. You know, as as Alex was just saying the the, the, the aren't that companies are trying to get any business to Cisco has stated completely. That's where they want to be. They want to software company more and more. They want to record revenue more and more. That's the reason they are quite dynamics for seven billion dollars last year as well. That more Reverend revenue that's the, you know, that's why they're quite do as well. And I do things the right move for them. They have plenty of cash, they're, they're, they're looking at this high growth markets, large markets, interesting technologies that are come out and they're giving them capital to grow. They are, you know, they're acquiring them to get the record Devon, which make sense. So I mean, but how do we get from which is to like, how pay is like outside AmEx and do essentially they're trying to basically the connective tissue of work right yet. So so. But, but still that's there's a little bit of a jump from a switch to to to push notifications, but how how do we get there? Well, it's this is the party uniting the smart move that the is hard for Cisco to completely Jane d. n. n. start building, you know, a suffer. Like I've done, it makes us feel like do a security. So what you do is you you, you acquire some of the static companies there you've been around them. What's us go under that dynamic Yaqub dynamics and new build a lot of ideas. You know things around it and low. You acquire like someone like do security, and you know you, you build more things around. Cisco has a pretty strong security business that in which has been growing up at pretty heavily, so do return to their investors. So if it sold for two point, three, five billion in cash and some other whatnot. It was valued. I believe last at one point one, five billion about a two x valuation, but it only raised around one hundred and twenty million dollars. So a pretty good revenue multiple on investor capital. I think it's pretty pretty solid. And I think we've seen a couple of kind of go out of flat or negative valuations to prior private Mark. So this is a pretty solid results. I think CISCO's kind of becoming this quiet rainmaker for an entire like group of inter capitalists, but their last Brown was seventy mil in October of seventeen. So like what does that you know? Eight nine ten months ago. So they probably were snapped up competitively. You don't run out of seventy million that quickly. They weren't desperate for an exit. Yeah. So Cisco again, kind of Reno. We could call this like a halo effect from the SNP or the big five or whenever right. But Cisco also in the past year, their stock is up like thirty four thirty five percent or something like that. So it's definitely not. You know, it's not doing too badly. It's not like Facebook status where it where it's down, however, many percentage or something like that in the past or Twitter or anything else because comparing them to consumer starts because they didn't do well. But but I mean, thirty five percent is like substantial for a company that again, like you're talking about is making a not hard pivot, but a soft pivot into services, and these are extremely hot beverage to do from making switches and selling hardware and selling for one time to selling more subscription and records business becoming a software company..

"Cisco tried to target consumers around this time was in the consumer video camera market in two thousand nine, Cisco acquired pure digital technologies. That's the company that was behind the flip video cameras. Do you remember those kind of cool actually, kind of thought they were neat. Cisco might have timed that kind of poorly because two thousand nine was right around the time that the hand held camcorder market was getting pushed aside by smartphones, more of which were including cameras, capable of taking video, Cisco stuck with this plan until April twenty eleven, and then discontinued the flip video cameras because the company was looking Cisco that is was looking to extricate itself from the home consumer market entirely. The space was too crowded with too many competitors, and many of those competitors had been at the game for way longer than Cisco. In fact, even longer than Cisco had existed as a company. So things were pretty rough for Cisco. There. By two thousand eleven other companies were also starting to really seriously compete against Cisco in the network infrastructure business. That's the bread and butter of Cisco, at least up to that time. Cisco was still the dominant player, though is no longer commanding nearly all the market, the way it had been as a result, the company's earnings were lower than what they had projected previously. And so Cisco had to look for ways to cut costs. And if you've worked for a big company, you probably intimidate what happened next because one way companies cut costs after a rough financial year is by laying off employee's John Chambers essentially said, I've done goofed up. The really was more professional than I make it sound, and it wasn't like it was an obvious mistake on the face of it. The problem as chambers admitted was that Cisco had tried to compete in too many markets. Many of which had entrenched players like the home consumer market, for example. So the company was fighting a war that had too many fronts. And so changes said it was time to simplify CISCO's approach to narrow its focus. And unfortunately that also meant cut some jobs in the process because those jobs would no longer be necessary for the company's mission. Chambers wanted to cut expenses by about six percent, but six percent meant one billion dollars. Some analysts estimated that could mean the company might eliminate as many as ten thousand jobs which would be about fourteen percent of its workforce. Others said it was probably going to be closer to four thousand. Now according to Cisco zone time line, it looks like the real number was somewhere in between four thousand and ten thousand. At the end of fiscal year twenty eleven the company had seventy one thousand eight hundred twenty five employees..

So according to the allegations, these people were reportedly hunted down, captured tortured, and at least one instance killed. The lawsuits accused Cisco of knowingly providing technology that would be used in those endeavors saying, there's no way the company would not have known. That the tech they were designing for the Chinese government was specifically for the purpose of the government identifying singling out and pursuing specific individuals within China. The initial lawsuit was dismissed. When a judge stated, the plaintiffs had failed to provide evidence that Cisco would have known. The technology would be put to such use. The plaintiffs appealed with oral arguments happening in April twenty seventeen, but then the submission of the case was vacated pending the judgment on a different case that the supreme court was hearing.

"Two thousand six saw a big year of growth for Cisco company was really able to get out of that rut. It was in it was also getting into the business of Tele presence. It's, you know the whole video calling business, which in two thousand six was still a pretty young science and technology. It wasn't that it was really novel. Now, a lot of people had had made use of it yet. These days you can have it on your smartphone. It was still a dominant player in switches routers at that time, and it had grown to nearly fifty two thousand employees. So it looked like it was well on the way to full recovery and it continued to make strategic acquisitions. It also officially dropped systems from its name and simply became known as Cisco. They also launched a campaign called the human network. This was an advertising campaign pain to kind of position the company as one that had a place in the average household. Old and this was a relatively short lived attempt for Cisco to make a bigger move into the consumer electronics market space. Ultimately, the company would change gears and again, focus on enterprise customers. They would ultimately decide that it was a mistake get into consumer electronics. Now, one very disturbing story involving Cisco around this time that I started to emerge in the the around two thousand eight or so, and has continued to be a brought up in discussions since then was the company's involvement in supplying technology to China. Now, according to allegations, brought against Cisco by various human rights, organisations Cisco was instrumental in.

He's one year later that had gone down from twenty two point. Three billion to eighteen point nine billion, and there were three thousand. Fewer employees around, but. Still, and you're talking about billions of dollars in revenue. It's not like Cisco was suddenly on the verge of collapse. It just was suffering a pretty big setback. Those able to keep its footing and CEO chambers concentrated on trying to lead his company to reverse this trend and to go back into a period of growth. But it took a few years. Cisco revenues and employee count remained pretty flat from two thousand to two thousand four. So I, it was all about stabilizing the company, then it was trying to grow it again during that time, Cisco was doing other business. They had gotten into the voice over internet phone protocol system. So they were selling a VoIP phones. They had shipped four million of those by two thousand four in an introduced security solutions in two thousand five, and it appeared to be on a slow climb back to where it was.

I started offering cable modems for end users. This is one of the few products the company made for home. Consumers as opposed to enterprises. So they entered the consumer market in a limited way and experimented with this for a little more than a decade. And Cisco would later purchase companies like lynxes in two thousand three to increase this offering links this makes routers home, routers, that kind of thing, and head existed before Cisco came along. Then Cisco lumps links us and under its wing. However, Cisco would not hold on to all these consumer facing companies like lynxes, which Cisco sold to Belkin in two thousand thirteen one decade later. In fact, that time Cisco pretty much divested itself of all home market products in general, interesting side note by the way links this like Cisco was founded by a married couple.

"John Chambers had earned a masters of business administration from Indiana University. He had worked for IBM and their sales department in the late seventies and early nineteen eighty s and then went onto work for weighing laboratories makers of the Wang computer or Wong. If you want to use the correct pronunciation. I would say this was in the late eighties. This was a computer company that one time was extremely successful. A lot of people haven't really heard about Wong or Wang computers these days because they were again, sort of a business to business company. But by the time chambers left the company in nineteen ninety Wong was already on a downward spiral, and it would eventually declare bankruptcy, it would emerge from bankruptcy. It would then get acquired, and ultimately it would end up dissolving after a couple more acquisitions, maybe someday I'll do a full episode to talk about the history of that company anyway, by that time, John Chambers. Was already part of Cisco. He had joined that team officially in nineteen ninety one, and he would serve as the Cisco CEO for two decades. He would stay on a CEO until July twenty. Seventh, two thousand fifteen, and a lot happened in those two decades. So chamber serves as the news CEO of Cisco and it's business as usual meeting. The company is continuing to grow in the choir other companies. This was a time when people began to get incredibly excited about the potential of the internet. The mid to late nineties startups were beginning to bloom in the mid nineties, but that would really build to a fever pitch by the end of the nineties. It got crazy. The information superhighway was being hailed as the next frontier. It was where people were going to make their fortune. It was a land grab of massive scale. It was where we were all going to live, and we were going to have experiences in virtual environments that would let us work and shop. And play and experience life in a way we just could not imagine before the internet or at least that's how it was all sold to us. No one was really sure how it was actually going to shake out, but they were all sure that it would lead to this amazing virtual future and Cisco, a company that continued to supply the technology that made internet connect communication possible was profiting from this excitement and a very real way more companies were building out in that works at MIT, they needed the equipment that Cisco produced in order to do that. They were going to Cisco primarily because it was the biggest name out there. It was the dominant manufacturer of various network components like routers and switches. So if you need to build out your network, chances are you're going with Cisco hardware, they needed to establish safe networks,.

"Systems purchased from that time up to present day, it would probably take about twenty minutes to do most of the were companies that focused on technologies relating to network. So within CISCO's wheelhouse, they were largely companies that made routers or switches, or modems or firewalls. Others, however, were in related fields like computer security. There was even a couple of companies that were related to internet television back when everyone was convinced that was right around the corner when reality it would take a decade or two after that acquisition for any sort of internet TV to kind of take off. And even then it was an totally different implementation than what. People had imagined back in the nineties. Cisco would also acquire companies in the mobile space. Also in surveillance in voice over internet protocol in digital cable and more even in consumer electronics. More recently, the company has invested heavily in cloud computing infrastructure. So in all, Cisco has spent around seventy billion dollars in acquisitions and most of the products Cisco offers comes out of those acquisitions. So you could say a lot of CISCO's growth came from buying out other companies and adding to their own offerings that way John mortgage and his successor. John Chambers, both used acquisitions as a means for growth according to a two thousand to business week article acquisitions accounted for about fifty percent of all CISCO's businesses. CISCO's moves also meant that it maintained a dominant position in business to business enterprise and it focused on network technology. It was the dominant. Player in that space. If you plan to build out a computer network, chances are you're relying at least in part on technology from Cisco, this included internet service providers..

"More companies like Cisco have had numerous stuff. Splits and I'll talk more about the result of that. At the end of this episode. I just wanted to mention that it was impressive that a company would hold a split only a year after getting listed on the stock exchange. When Cisco systems I went public, it had the market capitalization of two hundred twenty four million dollars. So in other words, he took all the shares of Cisco that existed. You multiplied it by the price per share. You get two hundred twenty four million dollars. That's how much the market cap is for Cisco when it launches in nineteen Ninety-one. Just a year later, that market cap was already one billion dollars in ninety. Two Cisco was awarded its first patent which was originally filed back in nineteen Eighty-eight because patent applications can take a while the patent office takes awhile to review a patent and then issue a patent. It was US patent number five million eight thousand thirty two. That patent was for a technology called the interior gateway. Routing protocol or Iggy are p. that was a set of rules that routers would follow for efficient communications within a computer network. Peaking ahead for a moment in the summer of two thousand thirteen Cisco would celebrate getting. It's ten thousand US patent, but to be clear, Cisco also grew quite a bit through acquisitions, primarily, Cisco grew by acquiring other companies. So I imagine many of those patents were part of acquisitions and not just that that were filed by Cisco are in d. Cisco also opened offices in Canada and Japan in nineteen Ninety-two and hit revenues of three hundred eighty one million dollars and grew to eight hundred seventy five employees. Now,.

"So again, going back to that office building analogy, think of each office floor, not as having people who speak different languages on every floor, but different computer networks that are working on a different proprietary protocol in each floor. That means that computer systems on a single floor can communicate with each. Other easily because they're following the same set of rules, but computer systems on different floors can't communicate easily there each following a different set of rules. So you have this disconnect. This is where the concept of multi protocol infrastructure comes in in the case of Cisco, it was a multi protocol router. Now, a router is a device that sits between networks. It's kind of a connecting point. Sometimes we call them gateways, although for a while, there was a differentiation between router and gateway today they are largely one in the same, but these are connecting points between one network and another network. It could be two local area networks, so you could have a router between those two. It could be a a router between a local area network and a wide area network, including a local area network and the internet. So your typical home router sits between a residential networks such as one that covers one household. Old. Let's say that it's your personal router and it sits between that and the internet at large routers, direct traffic on the internet. So in data flies across the internet does so impacts. I've talked about data packets, many, many times. I won't go into it here, but packets can hop from one router to another until they arrive at their intended destination and different packets from the same file. Can travel very different pathways to get to that destination. Multi protocol routers as the name suggests are able to communicate through more than one set of rules. So they're kind of like interpreters, right? They can kind of interpret in one language and translated into another language so they can accept data falling one set of protocols and send it in a different set acceptable to the recipient and vice versa..
