S6 E8 - Life: TBD

"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions. After leaving the military in the lack of answers has left you frustrated in probably more than a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of what can sometimes be craziness that is your life after the military. See you can turn your post military life into your best life. Now when i was working on this show. I thought you know. I don't even know what this next. Show season six episode. Eight is going to be about so in the show. Topic is making my notes. I just put to be determined. Dvd to be determined. And i thought you know what that is a perfect title or or maybe more appropriately. I think it's a good topic especially right now as it feels like we are nearing the end of this year. Long over a year now global pandemic that is covid nineteen and the truth is it's it feels like our lives have been in a to be determined status for that entire time right so you can't go anywhere you can't really get out of the house much. Could there's not a lot to do now if you like the outdoors. Maybe this was the perfect time for you to do that. but you wanna go shopping. You want to go out to dinner somewhere. We'll sorry you can't because everything is closed so our lives of felt like we're in a to be determined status but you know pandemic aside. Maybe you're wondering some more practical things you know. Maybe you're wondering if you ever be happy or if you ever get married or if you'll ever have kids or maybe you're wondering if the tonight is in your ears. Whatever shut up. I know i wonder sometimes. Or if you're ptsd symptoms will ever subside. I'm willing to bet that you felt an and maybe you're feeling right now that your life is on hold it. It's all in this kind of this murky to be determined status so my question to you is this. How will you know when your life is no longer on. Hold in this episode. I'm gonna share six elements of forward progress with you and buckle up. Because they're not easy. But i can assure you they are worth it. So by way of introduction mining aaron perkins. I'm a us army combat veteran also hosted. This podcast. I've been focusing on the veteran community. You basically ever. Since i got out you know i should be more honest with that right for a very long time after i got out on myself and focused on figuring out what my next steps were what my forward progress looked like once. I finally kind of got a handle on what my own life was looking like or what. It should look like what i wanted it to look like. I thought you know what. I can't keep this to myself. This is not something that i can say. Okay well i figured it out. All my other veteran brothers and sisters can just figure it out for themselves. So i wrote a book called resolve. That is a step by step guide. That takes you through the process of rediscovering purpose after the military but that aside today i want to talk about something really specific and and and a lot of the elements of the book. Come into to today's show. But i want to talk about those six elements afford progress with you. So look no matter where you're at you can live your best life. No matter what phase your life is in your best days are ahead of you and that and that's a key element and it leads right into this first piece. I want to talk about. Get your mind right. And i know you've heard so much about it. No doubt about mindset and how important your mindset is and how much it matters this. Honestly the most important aspect. Because if you don't get your mind right you are setting yourself up for failure if you are going into any challenge. Excuse me any challenge in your life. And you haven't i said okay. Let me you visualize what i'm going to do. Maybe let me rehearse it so to speak. Let me planet out now. Let me go tackle it. If you don't do those things then you are really like. I said setting yourself up to fail but more important than all those all. Those things i just mentioned is what comes before that and that is believing that you're going to be successful. So here's the thing when it comes to mind set right. It is not just a one time event. It's not just this decision. You make to say okay. Well i'm going to be Positive in this particular in this particular regard or I am going to say okay. I'm gonna change my mindset for this one time only. I know i normally have a negative outlook and i think that nothing is going to go my way and i it seems like life is crashing in on me but this one time. I'm going to believe it's going to get better. It's going to be better. Look your mindset. it's a regular event. It's not just a one time event. Maybe it's daily. It might be several times a day. Mindset is absolutely huge and a big part of the mindset is asking the why behind your desire to move forward or more specifically than. This is where i told you some elements of the book will come in. Maybe even the why try and so in the resolve book So i put together for the book. What is called the nine line framework. It is a guide a plan for you. The veteran to step through one step at a time for rediscovering your purpose after the military and line one in this nine line framework is why. Try you know we've already had purpose. We've already done so many things for our country and for allies for families. Why try and that. And that's one of the questions you have to answer in the book. I share more about how to get to that point right but element too so i wanna get your mind right get that mindset all clicking in the right direction element to is discover your purpose and you've heard me talk about a few times you've heard me say that discovery purpose rediscover your purpose even on this show on this episode and again talk a lot about this in the book and i wrote it with the belief that you do not have to suffer through life after the military. I'm going to say that again. You do not have to just suffer through life after the military because there is life after your military service you know. Maybe it's a whole new career or a whole new hobby or new opportunities. You simply couldn't take advantage of you. Were in the military purpose. Looks different for all of us. When i'm friends he was a medic In my unit that we deployed with and he is. He's big into fishing like that's his thing now. I'm not talking like you know. He just goes allen out on the lake every now and then this guy is a competitive fishermen really really great at his skill set and he has found a renewed sense of purpose just in fishing. And you know what is he doing. They're right what is he who what does he really getting at when you look at it like well okay. Cool like he's into fishing. But what does that mean as far as you know his life moving forward or discovering his purpose. Look here's what. Here's what i can guarantee you. In his life in his his new fishing fishing centric life right. He's got a family and everything that he's taking care of but this this is one of the best things for him because he has a passion for it and in that passion he gets to live out what he is really loving about his life and so in his day to day life where he gets to talk about fishing and and go fishing and all this. He's building these relationships with people around him and he's doing so much that it is. It's so cool to see when a veteran really really discover is in uncovers who they're meant to be after the military and again purpose different for all of us. So where i find my purpose are where my old dock mimetic buddy found purpose and fishing. Yours is probably going to be the same and don't expect it to. You shouldn't expect it to look the same as anyone else's that's why again that i created the framework that you can use to discover your own sense of purpose and the next element that leads me right into this. One is forgive. Look forgiveness is one of the least talked about aspects of transitioning from the military and it is arguably the hardest i say arguably because some people never even come close to really dialing into what it is. They need to forgive. They need to forgive themselves. Do they need to forgive. You know an old battle buddy Unit commander you know those who've been victims of trauma or If they have. Ptsd from their from their combat service. You know what are the elements of their lives that they need to forgive and again you know i feel like i'm talking about the book a lot and i'll be honest i am because there's so much more in the book and this is line three it walks you right through the process of forgiveness and forgiveness is not saying you know what it doesn't hurt it's not saying it wasn't a big deal. Forgiveness is choosing your own freedom. And i think i said this on the last episode of but holding onto unforgiveness or or bitterness even is like setting yourself on fire and expecting the person you were bitter at or angry at or holding a grudge against expecting them to die from smoke inhalation so all forgiveness is as tough as it may be all it is all it breaks down to is that you are choosing your own freedom so get your mind right. Discover your purpose and forgive what you need to forgive. Forgive who you need to forgive. Maybe that's you. Maybe that's someone else helmet four. Uncover you in other words. Understand how you tick. What types of choices do you make in specific situations and one of the best tools for this is a personality assessment and yes. That's part of the book as well. That's part of the nine line. Framework is discovering your personality. Because let's be honest in the military you know. Personality is fine when you're hanging out with your friends or your battle buddies or whatever you want to call them right but when it comes to getting the mission done your personality kind of takes a backseat. It seems to knocking out the mission to getting to mission success getting to mission completion and so a big part of your post military life like who am i to figuring out what it is that you are not only passionate about. But what are you naturally geared toward and in the book. I use a tool called sixteen personalities. And you can check out at sixteen personalities dot com that's one six personalities dot com. There's also a myers briggs assessment. There's the disk assessment. Which kind of is how you function in a work environment and so uncovering who you are and the key elements of your personality are really critical to your moving forward in life that brings me to the fifth element. Make a plan. The fifth element of moving forward in your life is to make a plan. Don't just imagine a plan get one now. Look i want to say something about plans here. Right it's a whole lot easier to turn to the left or to the right if you're already moving. Have you ever set in a vehicle. You're sitting in the driver's seat and you turn the wheel all the way to the left. It's kinda hard to do or maybe you need to turn it all the way to the right. It's kind of hard to do because the tires just kind of moving on the on the on the surface there and you're like this is. This is really really difficult. But if you're moving you can turn the wheel just slightly to the left or to the right in. It's a whole lot easier. So when i talk about making a plan you don't have to have every single thing figured out before you start moving. Make general plan now. Look there are a lot of great plans out there. The resolve book has just one of those. Which i've mentioned is the nine line framework. Now let me be honest with you here. Scrawling down your plan on the back of a cocktail. Napkin is about one hundred miles ahead of someone who never writes down their plan at all. There is a fundamental shift in our brains in imagining a plan and then writing out that plan so make a plan element six get accountability. Accountability is like magic. If there is some magic element to rediscovering your purpose and to moving forward in your life. Accountability is really kind of that magic. And you really get to kind of see behind the curtain so to speak and it's kind of the inner workings of how that m- all that magic happens and accountability can compel you to do things. You would not ordinarily do so take for example of a group of friends right so every saturday you go for run with those friends and you know you have to get up at five thirty. Am and it's saturday and you really have to work today. But you're getting up at five five thirty because you're going to go for a run with these friends and it's not just about the run. It's about the fact that if you don't show up there to give you a hard time about dude where were you like. Why were you not here. This is this is ridiculous right. And they're gonna they're gonna mess with you about it and and if you're a guy that they're gonna call out your man card and be like. Hey you know like we showed up. Why didn't you and so the there's this element of like men getting up at five. Am to go run now. If you're like a big into running and you do it anyway. Maybe this story doesn't resonate with you but for most of us. It probably does so. We're supposed to be showing up to this run right and we're like okay. Well here we go. Let's go tackle this thing but Man tired. I don't know if i want to do at this morning at saturday. I've gotten up early every single day this week. I have a hard all man. I just remembered these guys are going to be there. And i had better show up. Or they're going to give me a hard time and the thing is sometimes. It's fun accountability. It's it's light hearted but sometimes it's someone pointing their finger at you and saying. Hey why aren't you doing what you need to do or challenging you to say. Hey here's the next step for you. Here is what you need to be doing in your life. Go do it so element. Six is get account ability. So let me quickly go over these one more time number one. Get your mind right. Your mindset is critical and big critical part of that is asking the uae. Or the why tri- why should i even bother element to discover your purpose. How do you do that. Well one way you can do. That is pick up a copy of the resolve book. I go through that whole process. There and that process is called the nine line framework part of that nine line. Framework is forgiveness. One of the least talked about aspects of transitioning from the military. But i think one of the most critical element for uncover. You check out a personality assessment. Again you can look in the show. Notes shared a couple of links in there and you can use sixteen personalities. Dot com myers briggs disc assessment of variety. Once you can use but uncover how you naturally tick element five. Make a plan. don't just imagine it. Don't just think it write it down if you write it on the back of a cocktail napkin. That's fine at least write it down and remember. You don't have to have everything figured out before you actually start moving. It's a whole lot easier to make adjustments if you're already moving file element here elements six. Get accountability and accountability. Is that magic simultaneously that magic and it is the secret behind everything else that happens in your life. Can you do things without accountability. Sure is it a whole lot harder absolutely because again accountability. Is this thing in our minds. Says hey someone else's relying on you to do this to be that saturday morning. Run to show up at work to be at that volunteer opportunity. You promised you would be at an an again accountability. I cannot stress enough. i wish i could. I guess technically i could shout and scream and throw things and you know you know bangel desk and things like that but really accountability is so huge and it takes a certain level of maturity. It takes a certain level of maturity for to do that. Now look we all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith. In jesus christ while i hope these elements have helped you. I hope they hope you think about not only whether you should move forward in life but what your next steps. Are you're practical next steps. Four moving forward in life. And i'm going to ask you specifically right now to go. Pick up a copy of resolve at courage to fight again dot com. Maybe you're not ready to pick up a copy of the book and if not just go follow us on social media where facebook courage to fight again. instagram same thing Twitter at courage again a. We're the most active on facebook. Though post a lot of things there you can join our post nine. Eleven of veterans families facebook group on. That's also great way to get connected.

Biden urges UK and EU to preserve Northern Irish peace amid Brexit row

"Good. Friday agreement of nineteen ninety-eight ended thirty years of conflicts between mostly catholic nationalists fighting for a united ireland and mostly protestant loyalists who want northern ireland to stay part of the united kingdom. But now the accord is in jeopardy. According to david campbell chairman of the loyalist community's council. He's calling for dialogue with the eu and island to change the northern irish protocol. That he believes has breached fundamental principles of the original deal. This follows an announcement from loyalist paramilitary groups that they were temporarily withdrawing support for the peace agreement due to concerns over the brexit deal but it has further repercussions beyond europe to has been mcevoy news a political reporter and monocle twenty four regular and has been covering. The story is here to tell us. Good morning to you. Vinian thanks for joining us at. This is clearly a big problem. Here in britain and for the eu. Why is it resonating across the atlantic. Good morning yet has huge resignation across the atlantic you have a massive irish diaspora in america. One in ten americans consider themselves to be from irish descent. You go to the half american presidents having lineage and the man in the white house now is probably the most closely itunes irish issues. That has been since john f. kennedy and so we've now got the brexit arrangement in place in old nada and there was a reason why the northern irish people voted most strongly than any nation in the united kingdom to remain in the eu. Because it is a self-described post conflict society. Those wounds were still hearing and brexit has opened them up and caused issues and as well as the united kingdom and the eu the us will say played a big role in achieving peace in northern ireland. And it is worried that the westminster government has been to a reckless in its handling of northern ireland and things could start to come upon say loyalists particularly angry. We have to remember over the course of brexit with theresa may. She didn't have a majority off to the two thousand seventeen election. so she's struck this alliance with dp which is the main loyalist party. She gave them all kinds of funding for that backing To get her brexit deal through it contains something cold the irish back stock which they became unhappy with that it would have prevented having border arrangements of they were the ones who encouraged conservative backbenchers to keep looking at so now the situation is that. Despite bar johnson's promises he is betrayed. Loyalist parties in northern ireland in that he has allowed the creation of an irish seaboard between nineteen noland and the rest of the united kingdom. And so it is that that has enraged loyalists because they think that it is a barrier between them and the rest of the u. k. That isolates them and that it leads to more synchronization with the republican violence because north non has stayed in single markets and not go on with the rest of the united kingdom. So of course. We know that the have been major power players struggling currently with the brexit rules and their supporters. What does this mean for northern. Ireland's devolved government. Yeah we have to remember. The nolansville government was actually suspended for three years until january loss. If it had been an independent country it would have been the longest in europe to not have to working governments But what it means now is that we've had them up running for a year and all kinds of problems are coming up. So you know the prime minister. Boris johnson traveled. Auden's elliott this This month he actually didn't meet with chimp Sane the other main partners in that power sharing agreement that has said waves. That says you know. The the westminster copy relied on his effect on governors of. What's going on there. It's only dealing with one of the parties but the loyalists themselves having problems in their ranks. Because of this seaboard you had a administer effectively northern ireland a playing a sort of unilaterally moves late on friday nights a few weeks ago where he sort of blocks the construction of the border checks at poets and the hiring of staff unilaterally and that really set things off because they're just trying to frustrate the creation of this border which brussels assigned up to the uk has signed up to in law and for the first time last week the biden white house made clear that it supports the northern ireland tricycle. And that everyone else. Apart from the loyalist consider this now a settled issue to move on

10 Things Student Pilots Do Wrong

"What's up wally bobby. How are you doing great another week. Another episode we love doing these shows for. Y'all hopefully. You're enjoying them are. We've got a number of new five star reviews on itunes and other platforms. If you're enjoying the show please take time to Write us a review and if we should be doing something different or better don't hesitate to reach out and let us know that as well lots of good questions and ideas for the show coming in also and someone said something about Us covering some of the top mistakes that student pilots make and lo and behold. We found an article. And we're gonna we're gonna borrow this article and talk about our thoughts on some of these things in flight magazine. Which is the texaco flight. Training magazine from the ao pa. Still the one that i get imprint. I much enjoy it. has a lot of good things in it as a relates to flight training. So if you're not a member of the go register you'll get the magazine for free either imprint of electronic but way back in january of two thousand eighteen There was an article written ten things ten mistakes. That student pilots do wrong. And we're going to talk about those while the examiner. I know you see a lot of things that go wrong. let's jump right in. We've we've done some of these topics but we'll we'll go through all ten of them. What's number ten number ten pertains to checklists and lonely appalled. We have done a An episode on the usage It is something that is required to be graded or or evaluated. Rather i should say on a check ride Pretty much on on all the landings. All all the takeoffs and everything down there in in One of the elements that i'm supposed to be looking at as proper use of checklists and You know it's pretty simple. If if you don't use a checklist you're obviously not properly using it. So i see Occasionally on on check. Rides that that applicants. Are you know especially for our landing checklist. They're just using gump's and they're going through it and they're going through their mind. But there's not a checklist anywhere close And that's that's really a bad habit pattern I and i know Maybe a cessna one seventy two especially a fuel injected one where carburetor heat is not Introduced to the the scenario. There's really not a whole lot to do As far as landing. You know as far as Checklist items But it's it's a habit pattern it something that is required and it something expected When you get a job plan a big airplane especially at an airline. Checklists are are used. They're used every time You know. I fly big airplanes and some of our checklists. Only have three items on them. And i have a memorized. But i still pull out the checklist and i look at it and i read it and i i respond to it appropriately so it is a big item. You know you're not gonna fly the same airplane all the time. You may fly. An airplane now has cal flaps. You may be flying. Fuel injected one seventy two. And you're used to that but today you're flying an end model and you've got carburetor so you got carburetor heat to be considered and that's all on the checklist Landing lights Just just everything. That's on the checklist is it's there for for a reason so you know it's something that that We we need to do better with you. And i think as a student pilot when i was training you i did get lulled into this fact that i'm flying saint planes. They don't the school when i was going here. Only had one seventy two. So i was always flying a one. Seventy two all tricycle fixed gear aircraft. You could get lulled into that. But i've flown a lot of different types of aircraft. Now and if i only thought of those items on one seventy two n p models than if i did like you said flu anything else that i could get myself in trouble or hurt pretty quick right so number. Nine on. This list is poor weather. Planning i find that to be something that I find myself chasing people down talking about on a regular basis at the flight. School people learning how to fly. They wanna go. They wanna go And they just i don't. I don't think as much as we talk about it. I still don't think students understand. The dangers of what weather can do to us. And that weather as europe pilot and you fly weather is not necessarily the same three or four miles from here. We can see here. Might not be what. What's going on three or four miles away And it's it's shocking. I think i've told the story of trying to fly to brenham to see my dad. Not that far away didn't do a weather briefing or really understand all about the weather.

What is psychological strength?

"Everyone welcome back to the building. Psychological strength podcast. My name is april. And i'm your host. I am so excited that you tuned in this week. I'm absolutely freaking out am completely giddy. Because this week is episode number drummer. All two hundred. I'm so excited before we jump into what the content of the actual episode is. I want just give a little shoutout and a little. Psa to anybody who is thinking about starting a new project and feels apprehensive about your ability level. You may be. Don't feel comfortable. Maybe you feel like you're comparing yourself to other people who are further down the road than you I'm just gonna tell you start. Let's go all the way back and you can actually do this. You can go on your podcast app. All the way back to episode one to three. They are still out there all the way back then. This podcast had a different title. It was called women inspired. This podcast had a different focus. That was actually very unfocused. Which is something. That i did wrong right so didn't even really think about my title wrong. was not focused on a particular topic wrong might cover art. I spent about fourteen seconds designing it. I think in powerpoint wrong wrong wrong. Wrong wrong I didn't really research how. I should set myself up on itunes or anything like that about how to make the podcast successful wrong and i had terrible audio quality. I edited myself all of these things. I did all of them wrong. And yet here we are at two hundred episodes with a growing thriving audience. It happened because i made every mistake and just committed to trying to figure them out so for you if there is a project that you wanna take on whether it's gonna create a website or a blog and you don't know how to start if it is. You wanna learn how to watercolor paint or snowboard this year or whatever it happens to be get out there get started and go suck for a little bit. It's gonna be fine It's so exciting to see where we've ended up the focus that we have in a topic area that i am so incredibly in love with and so passionate about and frankly a topic area that can help one hundred percent of people who stumble across this podcast. And that's why you know. We call the podcast building psychological strength. Because we want to teach you how to use some really rigorous tools and techniques to help yourself thrive and live better and for this exciting celebratory. Two hundred episode of the podcast. We wanted to dive in a bit to what we mean by psychological strength. Because i'll be super honest. We made it up. It's not a thing it's not an actual thing. We made it up and the reason why we made it. Up is because so much of the field of psychology is very academic focused. It's very behind the closed doors of a therapist's office it is i've tower academia and all of those things are very important and they play a role but they are not mechanisms for getting information out to a wide audience. So what we wanted to do with this. Podcast is talk about some of this really cool rigorous stuff in a way. That's a bit more approachable. And we came up with the term psychological strength because it really encompasses all of the facets that we think about and this is you know even in the ivory tower even in academia in therapeutic settings all of the facets that we think about that go into a person's mental wellbeing and the two hundredth episode. We want to dive into that. So ashley's here with me. We're having strength today and what it is and what it means and why you should care am so excited in before we do april. Just congratulations two. Hundred episodes is a big deal and i remember the beginning. I remember when you first. But do you know what i remember. It was seeing it and then having the thought. Oh my gosh. I really wanna be a guest. That would be so amazing. And then they were in the early day you ask at. It was like one of the coolest experiences i've done. Because i just felt so awesome and then here we are and i love getting to be a side kick and regular guest on with you and to senior podcast grow and evolve and become really laser focused in see this audience grow to and we have such a cool community around peak. Mind in in this concept of psychological strength. So let's get busy. Let's dive in. I love it so we do all this setup right because we talk about psych strength as though. It's a thing that everybody should understand and realistically you probably have a pretty good idea as to what it is. It's exactly what it sounds like. But there may be more detail and more facets to it and what you might not or than what you might realize so we want to go through in particular four different facets of psych strength to help you understand how important of a we'll call it skill this is in your life and how impactful it can be in so many different ways so we'll dive into these four along the way we'll talk about why they matter and give some really concrete examples so right out of the gate. We'll go with the most obvious one aflaid do that kind of on a soapbox for jag. Okay so ask a mental health professional and one the soap-boxes determine mental health I do it. I said right vad. Okay but here. Here's here's the reason why. It's a very real thing and are dedicated. Almost twenty years to improving mental health. But the issue. The reason why. I don't like it is because then we talk about mental health and physical health like they are separate things in really think that the data show the research shows your lived. Experience shows that we need to be looking at health and wellbeing as just this holistic kind of thing and i don't mean holistic like woo crystals in in whatnot. I mean whole person. Every facet of it but part of the reason why i really gravitate toward the term psychological strength is because it does draw those parallels to physical health. That people are used to thinking about. We're used to thinking about our health. And taking steps like exercising and different kinds of exercises in different goals of like cardio versus stretching versus weight trading in we talk about eating habits and sleep and all of these things to help us feel better and to really to do better in our bodies we need to in the exact same thing with our brains

Why You Should Consider Audiobook Creation Exchange For Your Book

Why You Should Consider Audiobook Creation Exchange For Your Book

"What's happening? It's down here and I'm just tickled to death that you take a little bit of time out your day to spend a little bit of time with me this episode 78 and the first in the series on self-publishing an audiobook. We had been talking about self-publishing a book online for the past 16 weeks. So I I'm just I'm over it. There's other avenues we can look at but honestly, I just want to kind of switch over to them. Antibody book publishing if you're not there just yet. I really believe you should get there like ASAP and I'm going to give you some very good reasons here and stays episode. I know some of you might be thinking. Oh my gosh, it's overwhelming. There's so much stuff. I've gotta learn. I don't know. It's too expensive audio books are more important than ever. People are now consuming downloadable audio content through the ways of say podcasts and audiobooks. So you've got to get off the game now become an early adopter before this train takes off. I'm telling you that back prior to 2015. There was something that was called the Kindle Gold Rush to wear off everyone within their mother was publishing things on Kindle Direct publishing and making hand and money hand-over-fist easy for me to say Right. Now that's happening in audiobook publishing and if you are not getting in now, I really think you got to do it as soon as humanly possible and there's many options you can take advantage of one of the best places to start is going to be audiobook creation exchange now for brevity's sake I'm just going to call it a CX. So just remember that you need to remember audiable creation exchange is owned by Amazon. All right, originally started back in May of 2011 was actually put together by audible. So that's pretty interesting. In fact, they distribute audiobooks only two three platforms Audible and Amazon, of course and iTunes, which is kind of a peculiar relationship off considering that Amazon and apple are essentially competitors. In fact when you want to price match a book you want to drop it down to free publish it through apple and dead. Do It free there and then you'll have Amazon go ahead and price match fun fun fact, but here's the funny thing about iTunes you can tell that the competitors because you only get 25% royalty before a CX takes their cut. So yeah, that's right. You get twenty-five cents out of every dollar When you send it on over to Apple iTunes for your audiobook, so just just a heads up. There are other options. In other ways that you can make far more money as far as royalties go when you go into iTunes, I'm going to talk about that in future episodes for now. Let's keep on a CX so they actually serve as a Marketplace between a narrator's and rights holders. Now, that's the people that own the rights to a particular work most of the times if you're a person who's listening to this podcast, you're probably an author so you are actually a rights-holder. There are few ways that you can do narrator deals. Okay, you can do a finished price per hour right finished price per hour actually works like this. You have an audiobook let's say it's ninety five hundred words and maybe when it's read out loud, it's an hour's worth of listening content. That would be a finished our so you would essentially be paying a narrator per finished our for something like this. So let's say for instance I get a hold of my buddy Anthony Flashman and Anthony charges. Say two hundred two hundred fifty dollars per finished our I'm just saying this is a rough guesstimate. I'm not sure if that's what Anthony still charging but that means if I have for instance a month to our book that's going to run me $500 for him to do that book. Now some of you are kind of cringing you have to remember on the other side of things as a narrator. They're not just simply sitting down pressing record and calling it a day. They've got to go through your manuscript. They actually have to highlight certain areas. They have to prepare for it. They have to look up certain words and the pronunciation of those words and if you're dead, Fiction work. They're going to probably have to study the characters and figure out specific dialects or how they're going to deliver it, you know voice acting in general takes a lot of preparation

Pigments: How Houseplant Leaves Get Their Colours

"Thanks for joining me professor knocks Mukunda and we have got some very interesting things to talk about today I have been looking at my house blunt lease for many years and wondering why on earth they are the amazing colors they are, and I'm hoping you're going to Brown provide some of the answers to those questions today in this leaf botany. Special I guess the first thing to ask, and this is really something that I kinda thought I knew. But then when I thought more deeply I realized I have no idea exactly what they are, what are the pigments that turn our plants different colors. So, there are definitely leaves that. Will Pop digman set on Nieves and? Garanti that give beautiful cutters. Examples being anthem silence, which gives the to see join moten. We'd McConnell degrades and then we'll so flavonoids. Give useful. Yellow and orange carrots. And these old ham from when a complex high tech. which is sufficient. Honest but. Cuts pigments actually in the plant with time it's just set. Starts to break down and supervisors. sedating changes. And to. They become pregnant. And so we get to see them and enjoy them. So we've all these different wonderful pigments contributing to the of leaves but what are they actually doing to help plug and to offer different functions have quite a few options are. Actually, so The bright treat cabins and even the you knows oranges. Mainly the attractions who on itunes and to assist sage dispersal. And that will so. The fruit, but that will suspect as protected. So they've perform the function of. UV protection. and. Eight to ask that have pigment in order to deal with the harsh. Light. and. Louise these as protected. And some plots. Use the. Particularly the character Lloyd's. and. Additional pigments who accessory pigments. To insist with voter circuses. So. There are a variety of different functions. At Any Interesting to have an onset have these wonderful kindness often consoles express. Pigments. Stress. So in addition equity. Stressful. These pigments the as. Me East to deal with reactive oxygen species. There are so many different wonderful combinations of colors that we get implants. One thing that I. Often asked is about changes of color implant. So for example, somebody will report the their cactus or succulent. They've moved its location on it. Suddenly gone taking on a red tinge is not some kind of retrospective action by the plant to protect itself. Is it a kind of a stress response when you get those red tinges what actually is and I'm really glad you've mentioned. Documents and too high because they often produce a different set of pigments. And these are known as e two lanes and he troot has that very deep. Ribs hip he read Jala. and. This would be. Detailing that it's actually juice and with the lanes again, some of 'em yellow, some are gonNA slash orange men of the rate. And it's fascinating that. Group of plants which belong to the order of curiosity. Quite, a hard one to pronounce. May. They has evolved metabolism and some of them generate signed INS, and it's often dependent on which hots of the tenets that the Itchy femme. So the red really a day for protection.

Grading the Intel Era

"Today we're going to dive deep a bit on how the MAC ended up on Intel chips and how that went and how it's ending in the near future. Yeah I thought this'll be fine. I'm also a sign that you agreed to the idea. Early. Talk for an hour and half about. Processors like yes let's do it. So yeah a little bit different than a normal episode, but it's not every day that the MAC makes a big transition, those of us who follow the Mac and really care about as a platform. This is big important stuff. So we thought we could take a week and and talk about this here. It could be very soon that we see the first apple silicon Mac Apple said definitely by the end of twenty twenty, and here we are in the middle of October. So it could be anytime I mean they they definitely, GonNa have an iphone announcement soon, and then the question is, are they gonna say oh, by the way, we also have the silicon new apple can Max? ARE THEY GONNA? Wait for another? Announcement for that but but it's happening and I do think that the history of Intel can really kind of give us a good idea of what to expect going forward. Yeah, absolutely. So let's let's Kinda start there with the switch to Intel. So this this took place a lot longer ago than I thought it was everything feels like it's ten years ago was not ten years ago it was fifteen years ago. At WBZ, two thousand and five I've got a bunch of links in the show notes to the stuff. As we talk, you can go find the resources. This is the same keynote that podcast added to itunes which is Wild. The same one account like that. Though kind of feels nice for this episode well, I feel like back then in hindsight, apple was moving a lot faster because. They're bigger company now bigger companies move slower but they were they're crazy stuff like every announcement and this is right in the heyday of. I. Tunes and ipod stuff every time apple got on stage not just WDC. Would they had music events and they had macworld still? I tunes and ipod announcements were always part of the story and anytime you are thinking about announcements on this timer watching videos. It's just ever-present because it was a a huge deal for apple necessarily what got them to the size they were before the iphone launch, and then of course from then to now, it's been a drastic drastic change but the ipod and they were really important in the in this sort of. Really from two thousand and three, a couple of years in maybe two, thousand, eight or nine when it finally started to fade to engage grounded the iphone ipod tunes just like we're on stage we're GonNa talk about the stuff. Yeah I went back and watched the keynote and first of all, I just forgot how comfortable Steve Jobs was as a presenter. He's just. So I I mean the thing that made him good was he was just so comfortable and. It looked like he was just having a conversation with you as anybody who does public speaking can learn a lot from that but. What I thought was interesting was the parody between things he was saying then anything's apple said a few months ago as they announced the apple silicon transition definitely a lot of echoes of this event at Wbz twenty twenty. Down to even some of the same language and as we move into the technology side of it, a lot of the tech is being. Reused or new tech is using old names at least this is. Something that apple definitely leaned on I think this time around and this even wasn't hells I processor switch they went from the sixty eight K series to the power PC series. And we're not really getting into that today that was a relatively rough transition and places. Basically, a lot of the system software HAD TO BE EMULATED FOR AWHILE? Apple's hardware is moving faster than it software than. But they finally got their act together. But at this point, in two, thousand and five, the power PC train had basically just run out of steam and it's it's no. It was no mystery as to why they wanted to do this to said actually been rumored for a little while not as heavily rumored as the apple silicon stuff I think but the apple was also a lot more obvious in this which Intel was because like. Apples at this hiding their own chips. Of course, they WANNA use them for everything. I mean, they were already making apple silicon in all their mobile devices and people could already benchmark them against Matt does just slap that thing in and call today you know. I'm sure it's harder than that I don't mean to be going into it but. You know to slap it in there and move on.

"Answers. You have to figure saying, if you're an apple user, you probably got a bunch of things from smart news or someone else, saying there's a big apple event. There's a big apple event today. Well, here's what it isthe. There was a big apple of that, but there's not a full but it's kind of a good thing. They're going to start bundling some of the apple things because Apple doesn't have warehouses, their distribution or any way to compete with Amazon, But they the Amazon prime, you know, gives you the shipping the services and all those other things. Apple has everything. Pay for iTunes You pay for apple plus TV. You play, You know apple. Everything is just kind of all over. But what they're going to do now is finally bundle it mainly and it's going to save people money. And it's their targeting families. So what happened is when we went into lock down all of sudden, people's iCloud iCloud storage became a huge things because people are everyone in their families on some sort of a product rates, and they're working from home when whatever else crazy things they're going on. So the iCloud started to get a lot of extra business that it wasn't having. So now what you're going to be doing is Apple's family sharing system provides as many as six people could be on each service. So Apple plus Apple music apple

Five Super Good Rules for Recovery.

"He's sober sellers. It is hot hot hot down here and Peachtree city. Georgia and I'm kind of excited today have got some exciting personal news for myself. I've decided I'm going to move I. Think I mentioned this one of my former podcast but I'm quite excited about it a little nervous but overwhelmingly happy anyway that's a little bit to share with you on the personal note today. How Nice is it when you get a whole bunch of written reviews on Itunes and others, verses deliver to you in a week. Thank you guys for being. So kind I. thought I'd read one today. This is from actually I think I'm the leave off the name just in case this person wrote I am a thirty nine year old mom of three girls recovering from what Len has taught. Me would be a moderate to severe substance use disorder I am two hundred and forty days sober Woo Woo, -gratulations Lynn she writes thank you. You are helping me learn healthier coping skills and you do so with so much love and light God bless you. Thank you so much. I can't tell you how warm I feel on the inside knowing that I'm helping someone out there. It feels so so good tim. I'm going to offer you a nother five ish list I dunno, I just called it that but I just did in last week's podcast I shared about five ways to transform a shame and I came across another list this week from addictions and Recovery Dot Org that shares the five rules of recovery which I thought were pretty brilliant I think any time that we are. Kind of going about our days lackadaisically which. Many of us doing these days except for you parents who are sending your kids back to school I'm sure you're days aren't so lackadaisical but oftentimes we get caught in the Rut or were overlooking our needs are definitely you parents and can get lost in the day to day life that we all have, which is why I want to up our game on. Sick recovery skills we can all benefit from going over these and paying closer attention to what may be getting lost in our day to day rituals or programs of recovery. Or calendars schedules all that kind of good stuff and remember recovery is for all of us. When I first started my journey using the twelve steps of a I would read them to other people including my family and folks are like well I. Think we all could kind of benefit from taking these assessments of ourselves becoming more aware of things in our lives and I couldn't agree more. Remember that you can apply recovery to anything in your life. If you're feeling low, you can recover from that. If you're feeling stressed, you can recover from that. Recovery is a return to a more normalized state. Of Health of mind of body whatever you need it to me. So try and listen with a close ear today. If you don't have a substance use problem think in terms of your anxiety or your depression or your. Compulsions to do things for other people whatever is causing you problems in your life. You may be able to apply some of these rules or principles to just change the language up a little bit because we are going to be specifically talking about addiction. Alright then rule number one, create a new life where it is easier not to use or create a life where it is easier not to behave the same

Material Shortages, Paneled Ceilings, and To Vent or Not to Vent

"This is senior editor patron mccomb. Today I'm joined by Rob Watson digital brand manager. Hey. there. Kylie Jacques Design Editor. Hello. And producer. Jeff. Rose I. Well, it is a pleasure to see you all this morning. Thanks again for joining me. Pleasure. So I want to start off lending briefly Kylie someone commented on Itunes with regard to the podcast, and they said some very nice things many more about us. So you should definitely take a look at that. I want to encourage all of our listeners to please review the podcast it really helps us out both in terms to know that we're doing a good job and to help others find it. So if you do that for me, I would be super appreciative. That com that was dated on July twenty ninth but prior to that the most recent one was like the end of April. So. Get to. Work People. And thank you in advance I. Look At. Rob, what are you doing? What have I been doing? Well, you know. I. Keep talking about that Porch but kind of done with there's nothing new about. Other night other than last night i. just sat out there and enjoyed a glass of wine even though it's not completely done yet just sat there and watch the sunset. So drinking hooch on your new deck is the best thing ever. But actually the next project I'm not actually the next project because it's a big one is It's been so hot and Muggy lately that for years on and off have been like do do we want to pool problem is we're very particular about our garden and I would I would have wanted my daughter was little thrown up crappy pool in the backyard just to cool off but it doesn't fit into the. Landscape design apparently of our property. So So We've been totally disagree I went above ground. Pool absolutely. Fantastic. As. Long as I picked, the right would grain right? Well, I, I was going to get I was GONNA. Actually just plant some. Or Tall. Grass in front of it so that you know you can kind of hide it but the problem is I just don't have the space for that. So we've been talking about we've a narrow lot with a twenty foot setback from both sides and it's sixty feet wide. So that means we could just put something in the middle of our yard and there's not very many places to do that. We found this one garden bed that we're willing to take a chunk out of. And possibly dig in and put build a concrete soaking pool. So it's something that it's something that. Is Basically. Yeah. Basically, it's bigger than a hot TUB, but it's not something you can swim laps in. and. and. Probably. Even. Though seems kind of a bit labour-intensive thing. Probably do it with pouring slab in doing a block wall and plastering the block wall in doing stone coping in behind the why you think that sounds labor intensive. Well, actually I had. I had this great idea My. Daughter about how hard liens working on your property tactic. Even offered her a little bit more money than you're paying per hour. Maybe she could dig. Don't you dare? Rolling. So it would probably stick up about it would be right in the lawn. So probably stick up about sixteen inches out of the lawn with a stone top on it so that it would act like a garden benches well and Maybe That or not your own disaster at well, I've actually been just searching around for ideas on. Pinterest in elsewhere and phones mice examples have found some one example of some women in. The. Netherlands who built one by herself and his. All this cool stuff. All these cool details that she did is basically the same methods of construction and one of the coolest things was that Like well, this too small swim in this thing and those those jet pools you can swim in place or like thousands of dollars. While this woman bought thing, it's a it's a harness that you hook to some d rings in the corner of the pool and it doesn't same thing holds you back. Easy swam against this idea the harness. For A jet. You don't need a jet you swim in place to harness keep you from swimming forward You know I'll help dig thing if I can use it now on that. Okay. Sure to harness. Of wacky and honestly the Dickens give me really easy because. All the sand is going to be wheelbarrow downhill from the site and my my ground is all it's like a thirty. Patients one. GOING DOWNHILL My ground ground is all course sand. So a guy I dug a trench to my barn for conduct wants by hand and it was no big deal. Easy.

Is Apple dying?

"I want you to bring in our next guests. I've been to an apple apple Amazon all morning, and I think you've got some great insights here. But I got one story I'm standing on Fifth Avenue. With one of the great giants of early Apple Analysis. Lawrence Haverty of Putnam and of Gabelli, and everyone around us was talking about the death of Apple and Larry have already stood. Next to be and he said, Tom, it is total baloney. Larry. However, he was right 10 years ago, telling that might have been the 1st 2nd 3rd 4th Exactly. We've done that. I think we've done it five times since it's well joining us Now we're lucky to have a meet Dario Nardi ever caught outside Apple analyst with us right now, I made how on Earth do south, $26 billion worth of iPhones. Or the world simile Shut down. You know, That's a great question. I think it's a combination ofthe perhaps having the right product launched. I see a lower price product. But importantly in the apple management extensively about this The benefits of the economic stimulus that kind of permeated through the ecosystem. For them. Something is a combination of those two. But for the one of the really make it, perhaps to Corbett, where we've all been fixated on how public cloud off from his data centers are the new narrative. Perhaps the importance of Apple and its ecosystem is also gone up, especially from a consumer standpoint, so I mean, let's be really clear about this. Is this a consumer staple something you have to have or luxury goods company that leverage the massive fiscal stimulus of the last few months? It's somewhere in the middle of this right now. It is definitely a higher prize Luxury. Good, aspirational product. There's no denying that right. You could buy a cheaper for me. Goodbye, Cheaper piece if you want it. So there is a luxury element to this, but it has also the same time become business people built for individuals that work everything delivered in the stats. Apple Hod I thought with fairly impressive, which is 50% of the Max and iPad was the first time buyers ever 75% of Watts was sold to the first time buyers ever. Wow. I mean, that is tremendous, and it really highlights the importance of the hardware aspect of apple. Even though a lot of people were saying heading into this year, This had to become more of a services company. They had to get more revenue. From their iTunes and there are other services that was in line with expectations didn't have the massive beat of the other hardware focused aspects. What do you take away from that going forward? Yeah, you keep it up services are field was up 15% of the no, Not not not a terrible number, but clearly not the way it's been going in the past. I think the reality of services It's a massive business today. There are lots of puts and takes to it. And so what they saw was perhaps the advertising business licensing business. There is actually a ghoul, um, and apple care business, which is effectively the Newport Those those products of those services were declining. A bit more faster, did not grasp the flipside was things like Apple music. Things like APP store did much better if it was a bit of focus. Your tale of two cities. But you step back and think about this just keeps validated the point that this is diversity at scale. And even if you don't see services are iPhones rate, things like Apple Watch Variables and Max are doing better. I mean, I've been looking for an entry point on Apple for seven years, and I'm still searching for myself. A January 1st, mate, I want you to tell me the kiss and kiss January 1 return on Apple. This would 10% dividend growth. And also with that massive, persistent share buyback program, and I locked in for an 8% return day one. You know the buy back alone, a TTE least for the next four years. It's not longer probably will give you about a 6% return that she ever doctor will be about 6% right? You know, the dividend yield. Given the stock has improved. Paramount is about a one person today it's in the ZIP code. It's about 7% return between buybacks and evidence that you get annually. I look at this folks and just extraordinary. What was just said. They're about a 7% return day. One is well. Tim Cook spoke about the social issues. That they are not zero sum. Anybody in economics knows that that is back to Torsten Veblen. Is Apple, adding to society or they just stealing share from everything else out there that can't compete. Um I would imagine that they are more adding to the society. Worse is not, And you know, if you look at Apple's market shit, it is not a large number by any means any metric that they're playing right? Attend a video eating what Apple is done what others have done. Perhaps make things more productive, more interactive or efficient. Everyone benefited from that transition if you may, but I don't think that Taking anything away. That probably added to the society. We tried to have this conversation in the last Lets do it again. What's behind this stock split? Well, I think the official's times was, this makes it more accessible for investors will stand. Julie, not if it matters right. It doesn't create much economic well hear the end of the day, right? If I own one Charlotte for Chester. It's a bit of a non event. From our perspective From economic perspective. It's a non event. But their take is it helps the smaller retail investors more so we should do it.

"Back to is podcasting. There is no centralized authority. It uses this decentralized technology to spread files into update pod catches about when a new podcast is published. It's great. I wonder if all all the problems that we have right now with fake news and things that seem to come from the fact that people get their news from social media wouldn't be as much of a problem if we still had google rita are do think there is a very interesting interesting sort of alternative history internet where google looked at the niche popularity garrido and rather than declaring that the niche popularity clarity was not enough declared that google reader would be the basis of eight to tempts to compete with facebook and twitter because there was actually already burgeoning urging social network on that platform. You had the ability to share posts to people who could follow you google rita. Not many people used it but for those who did it was it it was a social network social network built around sort of vaguely long form commenting on news articles rather than in those days one hundred jordan forty characters. I think the information ecosystem would be better. Had the happened but it didn't happen. It said the thing is software doesn't actually have to disappear for people to feel chagrined. Sometimes an update is enough to cause pain. Google google maps is really good example of that where the difference between google maps now and google maps of ten years ago is quite enormous the software ah software that the web app has taken on a huge number of extra features. It has degraded in performances quite road but it needs a lot more computing power to to do what it did ten years ago. It's changed in much the same ways i- chains had and i think if you compared the app ten years ago to the web up now how it might not be clear which was better or at least it would be a lot clearer which changes had made it harder to use or which things that you liked had been deprioritize. A good example for instance is the google maps of today doesn't really have the satellite view that it used to has a three three d terrain view but it prioritizes that over plain flat satellite imagery which particularly if you're on a low powered computer doesn't work great similarly. It's <hes> it deprioritize of the drag and drop street view which a lot of people used to use religiously legislatively. It's in some ways slicker and when it works well it works better but it degrades really gracelessly when you open google maps. It doesn't assume that you'll have to look at a map anymore. It seems that you'll that to find a restaurant nearby or to <hes> look talent from country or perhaps to to you know get it to chart directions in a call between two places. It gets in the way if you know what you're there for. The flip side is if if if you don't really know how to use it it's much better that kind of dumbing down. I guess of technologies is something that if you wanna style jake for anything about decade old that's probably what point to do. You think that the reason people sometimes get annoyed over updates to apps is because often these updates happen without any announcement just very suddenly it's announcement i think is also it's consent. It's people like to feel consulted. Top the option of saying no and again this is <music> a difference between what used to happen to software ten or fifteen years ago and now even if it is a downloaded application on a computer it particularly if it's a smartphone app it will probably have automatically up dated and the first you'll know about. It is yeah when you open the new app. It's new that's brought huge improvements in a number of various particularly insecurity the ability to automatically patch a security vulnerability has changed the landscape made it much much harder for criminals to to do what they would do but the flipside is suddenly. You don't feel like you are a valued user. You feel increasingly like you all the the product that you are having these changes foist upon you and it's that much worse for web app where you don't even have the option of not downloading the change. It's it's just you light up a website one day and it's a new website one of the things that hold across the lower technology is people like to feel like they are consulted like they're involved and if they don't they they they re badly rarely.

"Listening or viewing experience, which meant that you can listen to an album or watches show on one. I tunes connected device, you could pause it. You could go to a different device connected to that same itunes account. And you could pick up right where you left off. So if you're listening on your phone when you're walking home, walk through the door. You switch it over so that your computer is using airplay to play it through your wifi connected. Speakers, it picks up, right where you left off when you're listening on your phone. This version of I tunes was also the official end to ping ping was done. It had only lasted a little less than two years. Really and apple kind of abandoned it, and it also had I cloud integration built into it in two thousand fourteen the company would release the last major update to IT tunes. I tunes twelve and this one guy. Some pretty harsh criticism as well when it came out once again, apple made big changes to the user, interface, they did not go back to the old user interface. They changed it more. They remove the sidebar again, if you had put it in with, I tunes eleven it was gone, again, making it pretty difficult to add back in, you could do it manually, but it usually would require you to do a quick search on the internet to figure out the steps you need to follow the playback bars changed as well, in general, a lot of users looked at the changes and said that the control and menu system was actually less intuitive and useful as a result. Not everyone hated the changes but the people who did hate them really hated them. And they wrote long detailed posts on the internet about why the changes were possibly the worst thing ever. And I a little bit with that. But I did come across one article that legit stated categorically that. I tunes twelve was the worst song. Wear apple ever released, and that it should be recalled and I came across more than a couple that gave instructions on how users could roll back their version of items to an earlier version. So that's never good to read, if you're releasing software. And this is also when apple gifted every I tunes user with a copy of the U2. album song of innocence, whether they wanted a copy of it or not, lots of people complain that the was taking up valuable storage space on their devices, particularly on iphones, and also that it wasn't actually easy to get rid of the album, that eventually prompted Bano from YouTube to actually apologize publicly for the whole goofed up. An apple with eventually let users delete the album more easily and update. I tunes twelve integrated support with apple music, that is Apple's music streaming subscription service. So here we get to the point where apple is doing. The thing that Steve Jobs, said, no one wanted to do more than a decade earlier, though. Obviously. Had changed significantly within those intervening years. So for ten dollars a month, you could sign up and listen to music streaming on demand from Apple's entire database, and.

"Encounter new music where you'd find out that your favorite artists happens to be a big fan of this obscure artist. New think, well, that's got to be interesting. And you go out and you buy all of their stuff. There was one big problem. Nobody was using ping, at least not enough people to justify continuing the service. So why did paying fail? One big reason might have to do with a nother social platform. Everybody's favorite monopoly Facebook. The rumor was that apple had originally included. Facebook interoperability in paying users would be able to share. They're paying activity directly to their Facebook pages and that made sense because everybody was already over at Facebook. That's where all your friends already were. So this would help attract people who weren't using paying, but who were on Facebook, and then they would see this service and the notifications and think, oh, I should check that out, but before paying could even launch something changed. And the story of heard most frequently is that Facebook pulled support from the app that this was decision on Facebook's point, not on apples, and that it was possibly in an effort to avoid helping give a boost up to a potential competitor. So you could argue it was a anticompetitive move ping failed to gain any real traction and didn't survive to make it to items eleven which launched in two thousand twelve so wasn't. Terrible experience. Well, I can't say from a personal perspective as I actually never used it. I never really heard anyone bash it. But at the same time I never heard anyone say anything positive about it either. It just sort of was, and then it really wasn't in addition to paying I tunes ten would introduce airplay that's the updated version of the earlier feature called air tunes that I mentioned with air, tunes users could stream music from there. I tunes PC to another wifi connected device on their network. Airplay would work very much the same way, except it would eventually include video media, apple also had more products that were compatible with airplay at this point. So they were able to sell those as well. The third thing that I tunes ten introduced though it would only be fully implemented in. I tunes eleven was I tunes match. I also mentioned this earlier. So this service was to address the fact that we were shifting away from having a centralized personal. Computer as the hub for all our entertainment, you know, back when I tunes launched in two thousand one that was how things worked, you would have your MAC, computer, you probably have just the one MAC computer, and you can have it act as the home for all your digital media, and in those early days, that was pretty much just music or maybe audio books as well. If you wanted to burn a CD or load songs onto an MP three player, you would do it by using that machine, you would burn CDs in that machines CD burner. It would connect your empty the player to that machine. Everything was centralized to that one gadget but by two thousand eleven things were different now with clouds services and cloud storage. We could have all our stuff living on computers that are out on the internet somewhere. Sure it wasn't sitting on our computer at home, unless we chose to download everything. But the flip side was that we were using any device to access our cloud account. We'd get access to all. Of that content. So if I got a brand new phone, I wouldn't have to sink it with my home, computer, and slowly poured over my entire musical election or go through and figure out which songs I wanted which ones I didn't I could just access my library of music in the cloud. Anyway. I teams match is a sort of a solution to a practical problem. See if you'd purchased your.

And anecdotally, which I, I realize it's not really evidence. I can tell you that in my experience, using on a MAC, while not perfect was way easier than using it on windows, and anyone who has had, I tunes, installed knows how it can place a really big demand on computer resources. But things were about to get even more messy with I tunes ten the last version to release during Steve Jobs. Lifetime he would pass away in twenty eleven the flagship app from apple got a bit of a makeover until version ten the logo for itunes was a CD with a pair of eighth notes on it after all back when the first version of. Itunes came out. That's the narrative apple relied upon the idea was that users would rip music from their store, bought CDs and create a digital jukebox on their MAC computers. But the CD was a bit of an outdated symbol by this point, and the updated logo was a simple pair of musical eighth notes on a circular blue background. There is no more CD in the background. But the feature the gut a lot of attention, and most of it was not really positive was the addition of a new social networking element in the I tunes program called ping. The purpose of paying was to make it easier for users to share with one another. You could share information about your favorite artists your favorite albums..

"From the I tune music store since its launch making apple the largest music retailer beating out WalMart, at least according to Apple's own press. Release other reports would state that apple held a strong second place behind WalMart. So your mileage may vary on that particular point, it would eventually replace WalMart one way or the other question is just as when did that really happen. And the pace was picking up. It was four billion songs when the company made this announcement in April of that year. But then in June, just a few months later, the company reported that the number of songs, sold now topped more than five billion, which is incredible. That it's, it's an amazing achievement to have gone from four to five billion in just a couple of months. The closest competitor online with apple in the music department, at that time was Amazon, which had only been selling digital music downloads for about nine months. When apple hit that five billion songs sold milestone, Amazon sales were about a tenth of apples, but it is fair to point out that apple had been in the business for five years at that point. And Amazon had just gotten started business was going really well. In fact, it was enough to get discussions going in various state governments in the US about the prospect of taxing, I tunes digital downloads. The concept faced a lot of opposition, particularly in California, not by not by coincidence. That happens to be where apple has its headquarters, the gradually many states would pass legislation allowing them to collect taxes on digital purchases. Not all of them would cover. I tunes store purchases, it's a state by state sort of thing, but New Jersey would be the first to do. Do so. Actually, the Garden State technically had done it in two thousand seven before any of this other stuff was happening. Version nine of items would come out in September two thousand nine once again, apple introduced new features with their increasingly gargantuan digital jukebox program. One of those was the itunes LP feature. It's sort of like the bonus features on a DVD for some albums, you could get lots of bonus stuff like music videos, live concert footage. Liner notes artist interviews, and more. So that was kind of like getting a whole bunch of collector's edition stuff with your album purchase for certain albums. Not all of them had this. Similarly, apple introduced items extras which had bonus features for some films available on itunes. So you could get deleted scenes and interviews and stuff like that. When you download it your digital copy of, let's say, Batman begins, I was one of the first movies to feature these extra things then you would just you buy it from the I Itunes two in. store, and along with the film, you would get access to this extra material. Another new feature was home sharing which would allow itunes users to share their libraries on up to five computers, within a household each person in the household with an itunes library could do the same with the others. So the shared library, could grow much more quickly, and I'm sure it was a popular feature for folks who are living with housemates, apple discontinued home, sharing starting with itunes version twelve point two, apple also added an app management and sinking features and I tunes nine to let users arranged their app layouts, which then could transfer over to their iphone upon sinking. With the computer one thing that apple would take out of the music on the I tunes store, starting with I tunes nine was the R M or digital rights management. Apple had already negotiated with music label EMI to remove DRM from that labels music on the store a couple years earlier. But everyone else. Still had DRM attached in two thousand nine the company was able to remove it from all the music in its store, and Steve Jobs had been an outspoken critic of DRM, but took some time for apple to actually digit. Amazon had already been selling digital music DRAM free for some time that it'd be fair Amazon's file format was MP three while apple was using a, a c files that were at least marketed as being higher in quality, so you were balancing things out. Did you want higher quality music, but with the R M or did you want the lower quality arguably recordings, but without Diarra now as a concession to music labels. Apple also agreed to introducing variable pricing on music tracks.

"And this wasn't actually, an apple invention much like tunes itself. It was something that they had seen from a different developer. And then acquired it, it was the work of an artist named Andrew Coulter Enright, who came up with the idea of representing files in a visual way in which you could flip back and forth through them like a slide show, and apple would acquire cover flow and then implemented it in itunes, seven point. Oh, so that users could browse through their music collection by album covers sort of as, if they were standing at a shelf, the Ming through all their record albums. So you can kinda get the visual appeal, although as I understand it, very few, I tunes users typically talked a lot about using it, because it could be a little bit of a hassle. I don't know. That's anecdotal like. I don't know if apple ever gathered any information about it. I do know that it wouldn't hold onto cover flow forever and later on apple would be involved in that patent infringement lawsuit against mirror world technologies and later. The parent company for the mirror world technologies, which was network one, and it was all about cover flow at the heart of the matter was a patent that described a system that organized documents in the stream chronologically similar to the way that cover flow worked, but the patent dated all the way back to nineteen ninety nine so it definitely predated the itunes version of cover flow, while the court case went back and forth in favor of either one party or the other as it was making its way through the court system, getting appealed and pushed a higher and higher courts. The two parties would eventually agreed to a settlement that gave apple a full license to use the technology and eventually apple would phase out the cover flow because again while it was really flashy. It was not necessarily the most practical user interface. Other features that joined the I tunes family. With seven point O included, gap, gaps playback..

"The item store could mean going from obscure to famous in very short order to get featured someone at apple had to take notice of you and it really helped if you happen to be really good. Which is why my colleagues, Josh and Chuck house of stuff. You should know got featured on itunes pretty early on just a few months after they had launched stuff, you should know and that propelled them to the spotlight where they flourished, mice show has appeared in the top ten technology podcasts frequently over the years. Sometimes even reaching number one on occasion. I remember taking a screen shot, the first time that happened because I was chuffed to bits, so to speak the algorithms to determine placement in the top ten were never really entirely apparent but it became clear that showing up on this page is really helped bring an audience to the show. Another feature introduced between versions four and five but really emphasized in five was party shuffle, which does not describe the type of dancing I do when I'm at a social gathering, although that would also be accurate. No party shovel would create a shuffled playlist. So instead of keeping the next song a mystery where you would have a song playing and you have no idea, what's coming up next. The feature would actually take a list of songs and shovel the order, so that the user could actually still see the full list of songs, and that gave users the option of customizing, shuffled, playlist and moving songs or even removing them completely from the queue. So you might have a nice list of songs. And you think I don't even know what order to play these in. So you could use party shovel, it would automatically randomize the order of that list. And then you can look over it make sure that it's still, you know, seems like a good party mix is pretty handy. If you're building a playlist for a party, and if you don't want six slow jams playing back to back eventually this feature would evolve into something else called itunes DJ, but that's a slightly more complicated story that I might touch on a little later in this episode similarly, apple had also introduced a service called air, tunes, which allowed users to stream audio from one wifi connected device running, I tunes. So really we're talking about a MAC, computer because this is really before the. Phone and ipod touch errors. And then you can stream that to another wifi connected device around that same time. Apple also introduced a piece of hardware called the airport express. It's a wireless access point that also had an audio output, Jack. So you could stream music from your MAC, computer to your airport express outlet, and you can have speakers plugged into that outlet, and you could play music in a different room. So that was the basic idea. You also had to have an Ethernet cable plugged into that airport express. But it was a way that you could expand or extend the way you could play music through a space. So it was an interesting idea. Now later, apple would evolve air tunes into a similar service called airplay, which eventually could handle all sorts of media not just audio streaming. I'll talk about that a bit later to by the time. I tunes five point. Oh, came out the apple music store played host to more. Than two million songs ten times, the number the store had opened with back in two thousand three oh and Steve Jobs, had a new type of hardware to show off at that particular music event..

"But it got better for apple. Because the company also saw a big jump in ipod sales. So we'll just introduced the third generation ipod, and it was a hot commodity now apple is making money both off the hardware side, and the service side of digital music. Apple had launched the store in April two thousand and three and updated it in October of that year, adding some features like the option to buy online gift certificates for family and friends and also an allowance feature that let users create sort of. Music Bank account. They could put money into this allowance, and that would help them budget, there entertainment purchases. So they'd say all right, we're gonna put ten bucks aside, and that's all I could use this month. So I'm gonna put that my allowance at once. That's gone have to wait until the following month before I put another ten dollars in there. It was kind of a way to control purchases. I'll and it was also in that update that I tunes would finally come out to the windows, PC market now, as someone who got itunes around that time for a windows PC, I can tell you that the effortless experience enjoyed by the MAC users, wasn't quite the same one I had when I used, I tunes, which felt like a sluggish behemoth on my windows machine. But we'll chat more about the differences in the next episode. Apple is able to get the music labels on board with this move to windows, largely because jobs had user data to support his argument, the labels saw that people were eager. Purchase music online. If it wasn't easy experience. They didn't have to worry about downloading corrupted file or worse, yet accidentally getting hold of malware when they were trying to download the song. They also knew that the quality of the recording would meet their expectations because it was all coming from apple and the users hadn't ditched the concept of purchasing albums. So I had made itself, a home over on windows machines with the blessing of the music labels and it was a license to print money by the end of the year, the items music store, reportedly sold more than seventy million songs. That's a lot of music, many factors contributed to Apple's phenomenal growth in the two thousands. But I don't think it's high personally to say that I tunes contributed an enormous amount to the financial success of the company, it certainly would prove to be a powerhouse in the years to come by two thousand four the music store. Contributed to two hundred seventy eight million dollars in revenue from quote. Other music products into, quote, according to Apple's annual financial report. Now that category wasn't just I tunes music store. It also included. I pod accessories, the ipod itself was separated from that category as well as ipod related services. Now just a peek into our crystal ball for a second on the tenth anniversary of the music store, launching that would be in two thousand thirteen analyst Horace. Did you estimated that these store generated revenue in excess of twelve billion dollars? That'll put that in perspective, apple, the company, the whole company reported a total revenue of eight billion dollars in two thousand four so a decade after launching the I tunes music store was generating far more revenue than the entire company had managed during its launch period. But we've got some more stuff to talk about between the years, two thousand four and. Two thousand thirteen. So join me for the next episode where we'll continue the I tunes story and how the program grew and maybe even talk about why it grew beyond all reason before it finally met its end in the summer of twenty nineteen. But this wraps up this episode if you have suggestions for future episodes, whether it's a company, a specific technology, a person in tech, or any other technologically oriented topic sent me an Email, the address tech stuff at how stuff

"But audience at the time was in negotiations with a different company and it kind of put apple on hold, and the opportunity pass them by and on a side note today, audience is no more. It was actually discontinued in two thousand four and whether this was another example of one of Steve Jobs, as favourite quotes frequently attributed to public Picasso that being good artists borrow great artists steal that's beyond my knowledge, but it does seem plausible that apple might have taken some inspiration from audion after having that meeting in two thousand one another new feature in, I tunes three was the introduction of smart playlists, essentially smart, playlist, allowed itunes users to set certain rules. That the program would follow moving forward in order to automatically create playlists. So let's say you're a big fan of the band. The shut ups got a playlist of all their songs, and you could just keep adding to that playlist, as new albums come out from the shut offs. But with smart playlists, you can set up a rule, so that every time you added new songs to your library from the shut ups those songs with automatically get added onto that particular playlist, I tunes also had a play count for songs added in, I tunes three so you could create a playlist of the songs you listen to the most frequently that list would change dynamically, the more you used I tunes to listen to stuff. So maybe one month you find. You're just really fixated on the classic song come a little bit closer by Jay and the Americans. And because you've listened to it a billion times. It pops up on your most played playlist but over time you get out of this whole. Fixation on the song. And eventually, it gets swapped out for some other song that now you are totally focused on, I tunes three also added a feature called sound check the purpose of soundcheck is to act as sort of level is our for volume and maybe experienced this kind of thing where you're listening to digital music. And one song is pretty quiet. So you're turning the volume way up so you can hear it properly. And then the next one comes on, and it's way too loud. It's blasting your eardrums to minimize that kind of experience sound check will attempt to bring the volume of different songs closer together to the same level to avoid a jarring experience. One last thing that I tunes three added was support for audible dot com. Audio books back, then audible dot com was its own standalone company..

"Than competitors were allowing, and most importantly, it would be free to download for MAC users, the tagline for itunes was rip mix burn and jobs announced that it was available right then and there for any MAC running OS nine and the crowd went banana a week after the presentation apple reported that the I tunes software had been downloaded two hundred seventy five thousand times. Remember it was only available for the MAC computers. At that time, Matt computers running OS nine for that matter. And the MAC had a very small market share. So topping a quarter of a million downloads in a week was actually pretty impressive apple gave a quick update a few months later in March two thousand one with I tunes one point one, the major part of that update was making I tunes compatible with MAC OS ten systems now skip ahead. Ten months? Steve Jobs appeared at a special apple music event. He took a different approach at this event and talked about value. See the first version of tunes would burn CD's as normal music, CDs, not as MP three CDs. A normal CD can hold a little more than hours worth of audio and N P three CD can hold more than one hundred songs as data, but it could only be read by special CD players with MP three capability. Those were slowly becoming more prevalent, including vehicles. So it was something that was worthwhile. And then you had MP three player options, the newest of which would be the ipod jobs talked about how the ipod would hold a thousand songs on it while fitting in your pocket, again, it's old news to us by the time it was a sweet sales pitch. Never mind that other MP three players had been on the market for quite some while jobs had. Even alluded to them, back in the initial itunes announcement, and this isn't an episode about the ipod. So I'm not going to dwell on it for too long. But at that same event jobs announced some updates to the itunes software. Now, I tunes two point oh, could burn MP three files to CDs rather than creating a new audio CD, and that would allow users to put way more songs on a single disc as long as they had a player capable of reading MP, three files, they'd be good to go. Apple added a couple of other options to tunes at that stage as well namely, cross fading and an equaliser. Well, Steve Jobs was setting things in motion to blast apple off into the stratosphere items continued to evolve when I tunes three released in July two thousand two it was with few new features now users could assign songs a star rating, which allowed them to sort their music library by how much they liked particular songs. So if you wanted to just listen to. Songs you really loved. You could choose the max rating and include all those other, you know songs that you had said were fantastic. And exclude all the ones that, you know, aren't really your groove at that moment. Notably that was a feature supported in an earlier, digital media player application, a different one, one called audion now, according to cable Sasser, who is co creator of Audie on. He had met with Steve Jobs and had a back and forth about the differences between itunes and sound Jan and the audion digital media player. And he had pointed out how audion had some features that I did not, which would give their software a chance in the market against the giant. I tunes jobs actually pointed out that the version of itunes that Sasser was talking about was just version one point. Oh, and that subsequent versions would add features features like the ones audion had Sasser. Also said that he found out apple had allegedly originally intended on purchasing on and turning audience into IT tunes. And that sound jam was technically apples second choice..

"Was software called sound jam MP, and we're done max and it was interoperable with the diamond Rio MB three player jobs, somehow heard about this software and was impressed with the work done by the former apple employees. So he had apple purchase the application. They also hired can Kate and Robin to come back into the fold at apple and Robin, by the way was in charge of itunes all the way up to its dissolution. Kincaid and Robin joined a team that took sound jam MP and they began to transform it into something new something belonging to apple. And this leads us up to January ninth two thousand one when Steve Jobs took the stage at the back world conference. He started off talking about OS ten and he moved on to talk about hardware for a while. And about an hour into the presentation somewhere around fifty five minutes. He segue over to talking about music now. This was months before the company would reveal the ipod that was still a secret. So at this stage jobs was talking about the process of taking music, CDs, and ripping the music to your computer jobs, talked about stuff that I think we all take for granted these days, he talked about the opportunity to take a music collection. Rip it to a hard drive, and then create playlists from that music you can mix and match anything you like you could have a playlist with two songs from the New York dolls three for Mickey pop half a dozen from David Bowie, four from talking heads and gush really likes to listen to a playlist like that. Anyway, you can make the digital equivalent of an old mixed tape on cassette or you could turn your computer into a digital jukebox. But unlike a cassette, you could reorder those songs any way you liked anytime you like you would never be stuck in one particular configuration, the beauty of. Having your music in a digital format is that you have tons of options, so you could shift things around or even listen to your entire music library on shuffle..

"So just let that sink end in just. Three months, the company lost more than fifty million bucks. No wonder many people predicted that apple was not long for this world. Steve Jobs was named by the board as the interim CEO, he would actually refer to his own title as ICAO cute. Right. But it was serious business analysts predicted that apple was about three months away from bankruptcy. When jobs took over, so you had a huge hurdle to overcome any made some really big changes. Some were seen as cute like the I Mak some were seen as the deepest of betrayals like when apple and Microsoft announced a partnership in a five year agreement to have office software. Come over to the MAC. And while not all is decisions were lauded by the apple faithful. He did get the ship turning around at the MacWorld conference in nineteen ninety eight he announced that apple had ended the first quarter of ninety eight with a forty five million dollar profit by the end of that year. The company had earned three hundred nine million dollars. In two thousand Steve Jobs made the transition from interim CEO to honest to goodness, CEO and behind the scenes at apple work was progressing on a trio of big projects that would transform the company, one of them was the OS ten operating system, which is still the basis of MAC operating systems today. One was items and one that would come out a little bit after the other two was the ipod. Now, keep in mind at this stage, apple had not yet fully reestablished itself, Steve Jobs could still fill a room for a press conference, but this was years before apple would while crowds with the iphone or surprise skeptics, like me with the ipad, apple, the company was still on uncertain footing though it had been an upward trajectory after nearly falling apart in the late nineteen ninety s one thing jobs, new to do was the pay attention to emerging. Trends, one of those trends, that was just starting to gain traction involved, the MP three audio compression format early adopters were starting to rip music from CDs to their computers and a couple of companies had created portable MP, three players, the digital equivalent of a Sony walkman cassette player, but one that could hold a library's worth of music. And a couple of former apple employees named Bill Kincaid, and Jeff robbin had created an interesting program that could turn a computer into a digital jukebox specifically a MAC computer now both Kincaid, and Robin had worked on Copeland that MAC operating system version that Amelia had discarded in favor of the next platform from Steve Jobs, once the decision was made to ditch the work. They had done Copeland. Both can Cade n Robin had left apple and they went on to pursue work at different companies that were separated. And working on individual opportunities. Now, the origins of what would become itunes should be pretty relatable to anyone out there. One day, Bill Kincaid was driving up to a race track to practice driving his race car at super high speeds. I mean we've all been there, right? Anyway. He was listening to NPR when he heard a bit about the diamond Rio MP three player can Cade wrote that this was actually the first time he had even heard of the MP, three file format which is kind of interesting because it was definitely in the news because of file sharing ball. Get into that more than a bit toward the end of the report on NPR the person on the radio said something like it won't work with max and can Cade being a former apple employee thought he could do something about that. And he ended up enlisting his former co worker, Robin in the effort, so Kincaid built the back end of the program and. An enlisted Jeff Galvin to work on the front end the user interface side. And the result.

"That was, how things were done. So I think technology just advanced, and that totally changed our habits around what we want to do with our music. No, I completely agree in again, I at the risk of sounding like a genetics dinosaur here, I feel, I have felt myself going through this transition, where the idea of, of media of individual content ownership was very much like you just by once. Right. And then it's yours forever and moving. To the idea of streaming, which aka subscription services, it is quite a change. Because as you're saying you really renting access to it. You you're not owning it. And when you decide to stop paying that monthly rent, you lose access to all of it. So there's a big trade off there in terms of like how we even conceive of what individual media ownership is, and it couldn't have happened without some of these softwares. And then as you're saying the connectivity that has paved the way for that. Is that a fair analysis? Yeah. I think so. That's totally fair. Okay. So, so tell me more than about what is apple doing his, apple changing its business model around the current reality, where in eighteen years after the first introduction of itunes. Yeah. Apple is absolutely changing. Its business model apple is at its core a hardware company. You know, conic devices I body Mahathir axe iphones. Everything like that. And recently just this this past year. Apple's had some difficulty in its earnings. They've. Come out and said that people aren't upgrading their devices as often as they used to were seeing prices get higher, especially for the iphone, which is like the big moneymaker people aren't wanting to spend that money so frequently because the devices work for a really long time. So what we're seeing is Apple's moving into the subscription services, and we see that reflected in this change that they're making. I tune, so apple music is a monthly subscription it gets into this whole streaming trend which we just talked about, and that for them is a monthly fee that they're receiving from subscribers which is a significant chunk of change. And with this new TV program that they are going to be launching this year. That's why they have the TV app now because you'll be able to watch your shows. Well, actually Carmen stand by here for just a second. We are talking about the death, perhaps long-overdue of I tunes, but how technology and in this case, this particular program changed, our concepts of music ownership and how we listen to and access media in the digital aid. There you happy. I tunes is gone are you, did you switch over to streaming full-time recently or or a long time ago. We've got comments coming in here online, dams ovation says good riddance, I can't stand. I tunes bloated poorly designed inconvenient and was never that great a media player to begin with. We'll be back. This is on point. This is on point. I Magnin chucker birdie, we're talking this hour about the death, perhaps long overdue of itunes. Apple is retiring what was once. It's it's central content app in favor of three new. I guess not really new for your iphone, but three different separate apps for music and TV and podcasts. And we're talking about how I tunes was part of a family of technology that changed our concept of what it means to own and how we listen to music, specifically. But media overall, we've got a lot of comments coming in here. Online, Sam Winston says, I haven't bought music since the nineties, Janis Hansen says, or Janet Hanson says, I will miss I tunes. I use it to listen to my playlist with my own CDs, but I'm on a PC will I be able to continue Ashley Carmen will she be able to continue using windows? Yeah. So I tuned. These changes are only happening for MAC users, I tunes as far as we know. Now, we'll continue to exist on windows same experience. You've always had okay. And I remember Steve Jobs, said that when they finally way back in the day when they finally introduced itunes to windows windows users, which they held off for, for a while that he said it was it would be something like giving a glass of ice water to a person suffering in hell. That's how proud he was the clean interface. Or let's go to the phones, Michael is calling from Detroit, Michigan..
