Yeah. do think deserves another little bit of a or there was an article that put out that said, no matter how much the PS fi sells it will underperform compare the switch I think that what they're trying to get as the fact that there are limited consoles released on the PS for another ps five. Why They're limiting the. So there's GonNa be ten, million PS five consuls made for the end of this year off though ten million itself sold at line. See All ten million get sold at launch. It will still be less than the switch like the switches expected to sell more anything price makes. You keep giving me the church. Like visualize what you Give you an interesting question instead you just go. I'm trying to process okay like I have to visualize it my head. So there's like, okay. So the way were to it sound I'm I'm I'm wondering if it's broken down. In different stages like this is the first priority will be another pure early, ninety my toll but different parts or is it all once well? That's an interesting. That's an interesting point 'cause. They did say there will be more in fact Sonya's came out and said Hey. More PS fives will be available at launch than the PS four back in twenty thirteen. That's from the promise that they're making that. Will you be able to free order your consul or get a preorder in later links say the end of September or October that I don't know but people are throwing that around maybe the second batch will be September twenty second and I guess they might WanNa trip there if that is true, it's probably because they're. Trying to get ahead of Microsoft because Microsoft possessing, you can start pre ordering at the end of this month and you know Sony is all about trying to compete with Microsoft because that's the whole reason why they went second I'm revealing price they wanna see when how much the xbox series x and s costs I.

TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations
"And Tick Tock recently made headlines Everywhere when Resin Donald Trump signed an executive order. That would essentially ban the Chinese owned APP in the US for national security reasons. Unless it sells its operations here to an American company. And of course, if that were to happen. We would have nowhere to go to see a million potatoes singing. To Adele. And that would be a national tragedy. This week deal actually emerged between TIKTOK and American company Oracle but some people like Zachary say trump's tiktok policy effectively changes. Nothing. The argument goes like this. It will do little to protect Americans data from the Chinese government because there are still plenty of other ways China could get that data that this move is just a new kind of security theater basically. The hard work of data security according to this actually lies elsewhere. So, Zachary TIKTOK has been banned in Indiana a few other countries, but it's still pretty popular for now it's the most popular video sharing app i. can see why it seems like fun and there are mental creative. They're short I mean the whole nature of the medium has their time limited. What happened with Tiktok this week what happened this week? Should be clear but isn't. Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target. We'll be right back. Everyone wants to become a better leader this groundbreaking new book how to lead shows you how David M Rubenstein is one of the visionary founders of the Carlisle Group and host of the David Rubenstein Show where he speaks to leaders from every walk of life about who they are, how they define success and what it means to lead. Jeff bezos Richard Branson Warren Buffett Bill Gates Ruth Bader Ginsburg Phil Knight Oprah all of them and more are featured in how to lead this essential leadership playbook illustrates the principles and guiding philosophies of the world's greatest game changers discover the expert secrets to being. Effective innovative leaders. Walter Isaacson proclaims reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets, pick up a copy of how to lead wisdom from the world's greatest CEOS founders and Game Changers Bhai David Rubenstein available in Hardcover e book or audio, and we're back I get the kind of general personal security aspect of it. Where does the national security aspect of it come in? Is it because there's concern about people who worked at the Defense Department or the military whoever having to talk in in use in their households or people in the Defense Department are not allowed to use tiktok certainly not on their phones. For before this although they may have teenagers who That's vulnerability as well. So it wasn't primarily about like US government employees who might have sensitive data that tiktok would be the back door way that the Chinese government would spy on them but it was generalized sense of any foreign government that is using private American citizen data potentially for nefarious purposes represents a national security threat. Now, it clearly has not represented the kind of national security threat in the estimation of the White House right now when it's Russian. Manipulation of social media accounts the same principle should or would apply right. If you'RE GONNA ban, Tiktok you'd probably want to take action against the a variety of Russian media enterprises that are attempting to manipulate and hoover up American user data. Some of that data's you mentioned earlier in terms of third party is available to anybody for a price just because there's a marketplace for data. Which I think either most of us aren't aware of or frankly most probably don't care if politicos data on this podcast gets sold to fourteen vendors so that it can sell you and me products based on our other computer activity most people. Either like that, or don't care about that. But the national security concern is simply because it's a foreign government that could potentially. Use, our search history or browsing history nefarious. And again a, that might be true but be it's likely that all this kind of data is obtainable irrespective of whether or not a company called TIKTOK. Happens to have access to a lot of it. It's really interesting. So into this whole story comes oracle, you know huge hardware software firm but how did they get involved here? Yes. Oracle is is a multibillion dollar firm that has had the same public profile as Microsoft or Amazon or facebook or apple because most of its business is to other large companies, you know you and I don't tend to go out and buy Oracle piece of hardware because we don't need a hundred and fifty thousand dollars server or. Network system for our employees. They're largely corporate provider throw a huge provider to the Defense Department in terms of cheer equipment and material, and they're huge software company. They're one of the early Silicon Valley success stories and the billionaire founder Larry Ellison has been probably more conservative than not I don't know that I buy into the whole. This is a reward versus. A snub to the other potential main acquirer or partner for Tiktok, which was rumored to be Microsoft but this is an unusual. This doesn't usually fit oracle's business model. Well, that's that's interesting. So what is their interest in getting involved here perceived to be I'm not one hundred percent clear about that I mean look at could allow them to. Have a little bit more of a consumer facing brand. Again, I mean Oracle's. Primarily a software company primarily a database company. Maybe this could help them increase their databases. There's no way that this is a natural fit for goal. But at the same time north this a huge cost for Oracle, maybe it'll produce some American jobs. I mean. They're looking for growth just like everybody's looking for growth, and once you get to be the size of Oracle. Growth gets harder some of they're also looking for a DIFFERENT INDUSTRY TO BE President Chore? So. What exactly did they given? What did they get here that as of this conversation is not one hundred percent clear off so it was presented as or go by tiktok. That is not the case or at least it's not the case now and as possible. The deal will be scuttled or change given that all of this has to be approved by the government has to be approved by committee. Called Syfy S, which is the committee in charge of looking at global deals in terms of US national security, but it would seem that right now. The parent company of Tiktok saw own TIKTOK and get some of the economic benefits of TIKTOK. This Chinese company called by dance and that Oracle in turn will get a massive licensing deal to house Tiktok data and information on its own. Servers and using its own software. So the concern that the Chinese government would have access to that data would be allayed meeting under this agreement arrangement because the data would be managed by and it's housing would be arranged by a US company. The Chinese government could order by dance to turn over but by dance itself wouldn't actually have access to that data. It's interesting I mean based on what you said before it's they're they're they're moving this data from place a, it's not going to be in a different place and I guess the Chinese government will no longer have a key to the door. But as you said before there's many different ways that either the Chinese government or a lot of other. State or private actors can get hold on more or less any data they want to these days right? which kind of raises the question for point of all, this is ENA. It's certainly true. It would make it a little more challenging to get that data under that kind of arrangement. It seems like this a big fight over a big company. That's not actually really about. The literal subject of the conflict here. Yeah. It is totally fair to say that whatever the imbroglio about tiktok has very little to do with tiktok. And everything to do with US policy toward China. And the trump administration looking for some High profile optic to be able to say we're we're being tough on China and protecting American citizens. Again, the oddity of Tiktok is given that so many of its users or young adults. Who Don't vote although who would be? Extremely, Acetate it. If they woke up tomorrow and there's no TIKTOK meeting, it's probably not. The most popular move if what you're trying to do is gain support during a presidential election. So it's not entirely clear what constituency the served there wasn't like a huge congressional clamor for Oh my God. We're all big imperilled by these fifteen second videos. So where do you think things go from here in terms of into in terms of the real story behind all this in terms of the U., S., China relationship and the increasing in. them of that. So I think to some degree regardless of who wins the presidential election. there. Is a train that's left the proverbial station of increasing. Distrust and animosity between the United States and China. But within the context of an incredible amount of economic interdependence that you cannot just snap your fingers and several or at least not without massive massive harm to each part of that equation both the United States and China, and that's that's pretty unprecedented. Right? Right. That's like the Cold War analogy doesn't work because there was no economic relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union nineteen. Fifty S

"So this is the part that seems a little bit I'm serious, bordering on corrupt here Is that like that? The core of this change is just a swing of money from one Cloud service provider who happens to be have a CEO that the president really doesn't like to another Cloud service provider who's much more politically connected. That doesn't change the realist you which is whoever has the underlying servers, which is important. There are people who are logging into those systems everyday. They come in at 8 A.m.. They get their coffee or their tea, and it's their job to run. Systems that in tech things like data warehouses, production databases of the back and services that store personal data. The people who write and run those things. Right now, our bi Dan's employees and there's been no discussion of that responsibility is 20 overto Oracle, and that seems to be the difference between this deal on Microsoft. The Microsoft proposal was for Microsoft to buy everything the entire stack. And from Microsoft to rebuild it and operate top to bottom. Everything that was going toe be tic tac us. And now we're talking about Oracle plugging in here, a board of directors here, but it's a big middle chunk of the people who were actually doing the work. That is what we need to know about if we're going to figure out if there's any kind of risk here, right, Which is why some Alex they're saying that the way it appears to be structured. At this point, at least, uh, reminds people of the classic Javy structure that China has imposed on US firms for years and that we have complained about for years. Is that fair or not? I think it's totally fair destruction that's been proposed, is very close to the structure that Apple was forced to take where Apple's iCloud services are provided by a joint venture. That is majority controlled by Chinese shareholders. But then Apple still provides a lot of the operational and technical sport of how it runs. And and you know, if if this is a goal, then it does.

"For even the xbox series s because those appeal more to me because I they will be able me to do more things. You're still very limited on what you can do and what you can't play with oculus quest to I understand for for most of these units that the process of motion sickness headaches, dizziness those things that were very common with virtual reality way back when like I was saying in the early nineties and whatnot. And the stigma that was attached them. I know most of that's gone away but still people do not wanna put all the different apparatus for so many. For extended periods of time I mean, this is probably what were wearing right now on our heads with our headphones is probably the most we WANNA do for any extended period of time. So I want to hear your thoughts man I mean for me, it's not something I wanna do not want experience because it's just not overwhelmingly fascinating enough to me to say hey. You know what I gotta go ahead and step in that world because it yes. Other it's going to be a great experience for me for few minutes like it always is when I put on Vr and then the novelty goes away and I just feel like you know what I'm just doing the same thing I could have done when I've lying on my couch. I understand that perspective and it's a very valid one I think is one that Americans have right and I think I'm the outlier here because I spend so much time in goggles doing the the drone flying stuff that. I'm not bothered by putting on a goggle set like that especially, my my. First pair of goggles were big box goggles i. mean like they hung this off my face. You know. So it's it's there. They had a and for those that are listening they high hang like six or eight inches off my face right so you've got this gigantic thing hanging off the front of your face, even Yao and sometimes even longer than these oculus questions are. It doesn't bother me but I think it's because I've I've gotten used to over time and I only I'm only in my goggles for three or four minutes at a time right? Because my germs freestyle and racing drums they they don't stay in the air for more than five minutes generally especially when I'm doing some crazy stuff, it's down two and a half three minutes I understand where by the time I'm my goggles off. That's one of the VR sickness starts to set in for most people. Initially when I read the story, I was pretty excited about this oculus quest to look at the price tag and it's the same price tag is a xbox series S. hundred dollars mortgage you a playstation five digital only edition. I mean what is the attraction here because there's really none you kind of talked about it there's not a ton of titles for it. You know yeah you can go watch some some movies in your head said but why do you want to spend that much time in your headset plus also affected the interaction with other people the interaction on multiplayer I mean you can go right now and hop on a game and go into a multiplayer with. Dozens and dozens and dozens and hundreds and thousands of people right now, you can just go play four night and there's tens of thousands of people waiting for you. You can just go on NBA Two K. which hold a lot of people will be going ahead and playing right now you know same thing with. oculus yeah. You do have some multiplayer options, but it doesn't seem as infinite as the possibilities you have when you go ahead and play a console or you just interact with people on other avenues of entertainment and. To Me Vr is another form of entertainment. It doesn't seem to be for me at least the same thing as I envision it way I played consoles whatnot and I was talking about. Know when I went to see because I, you know when I go to see us every year I do see the latest and greatest and what's updated with. VR, virtual reality world thinks about nature but for a couple of years Microsoft had this aluminum. That's what it was called a Luma Room, I've mentioned the name and you would walk in and would have what you would see in a vr except it was you didn't need glasses and you just walked in and you experienced it in your room kind of like a holiday didn't work perfectly mind you at that point in time. But what? To me, that is the future I mean what we see on Star Trek with the go into the holiday and you know you have those experiences that's be something I think is the future of the way our world will be whether be now or one hundred years from now that's that's beside the point to sing. That is something that I think a lot of people are looking forward to then going ahead and experiencing it by putting on goggles and headset and having controllers and having this and having that and having more things than they already have right now. So I think it's a deep deep. Dive in it's a big step for a lot of people to go ahead and venture into that I. Don't think people want to go ahead and take the time or spend the money on to go and actually take that sub. It seems like Vr for a lot of people is that wall that wall that people don't WanNa go over right now. Yeah, and honestly just pulling up the few videos I've found on the aluminum if you could make this technology work. This is what I want. Why would I put on goggles or glasses or anything else? So you could just yet I'm looking at the this the gaps from this video. This is amazing. Absolutely, but unfortunately, Microsoft abandoned did I won't say abandoned maybe permanently but they kind of ditched it maybe wasn't practical or maybe it wasn't cost effective maybe they couldn't like slap a five hundred dollar price point on it and say, there you go. So you know they couldn't market it to a mass audience maybe they're still utilizing and developing in some way, but they didn't show it in recent years at CSM assuming they kind of put it on the shelf gather some dust right there at Microsoft's that's that's proprietary software that you'll see papa, one of the theme Parks Pretty Soon I'm sure I may be at but still It's just the concept that's where you want our future to go. That's what you WanNa do and you want vr seems to me just again when they were forcing it down your throat in two thousand seventeen, it just seemed like be something that. Is something extra. A lot of people didn't want didn't need Marcus. I mean before we head onto another subject I want to ask you this is the oculus quest to something that you're interested in buying mean. Is it something you wanna go ahead because he said of anyone either of us? Seems to be a better more attractive.
How the Gates Foundations values shape the world
"This week we've been talking with Bill Gates copy of the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and is trying to eradicate polio and malaria globally gates created a billion dollar climate investment fund. He has funded multiple factories to find a vaccine for Covid nineteen and the foundation is matchmaking companies around the world to get that vaccine distributed. Gate. Doesn't the position to do all of this because he's one of the world's richest people because he co-founded Microsoft and to be honest that's a little weird. So in part three here I asked Bill Gates how his philanthropy ends up doing. So much of the work of government he said some of it is mission creep take malaria. When we started out, we mostly thought that we would just increase the arm de because. You know for malaria, the people who die which at that time was over a million children a year they don't have enough money to have a voice in the marketplace. So there was no. Science, or willingness to fund on their behalf in a capitalistic system. And there was a little bit of foreign aid but much. So we came in, is the the biggest player in Malaria Ding. At first, I thought our role would just be to create the drugs and the nats. And that we weren't mean to fund the actual delivery side. Because once we have the tools. The uptake would be there in fact, it turned out that. It was much harder to. Have things delivered than we expected. So we were CO founder the Global Fund. Goes after three diseases HIV to Berkeley similar, and we were a founder of this Kavi organization that buys vaccines for the poor countries at the very lowest prices, and so those two institutions which we did in our first two years of existence to learn about delivery so far actually they've probably been the most impactful thing we've done. The R. D. promises to give us some amazing things including the tools that will help ascent malaria and. Make incredible progress on issues but the delivery side I underestimated how hard it was and how we would have to partner up to figure out what kind of axiom would be acceptable. What kind of medical intervention you know even how do you tell people that they really need to sleep under that bed net and that feeds back to the design of the product? Because you're a partner in the delivering, you see what's not working and we thought we could get women to take a daily pill. For, HIV prevention. And the uptake on that very very low, and so now we're working on something that you'd only have to take either a shot or a pill every ninety days because it looks like that would get uptake, but you're driven by the limitations of of uptake, and so that's why we've got to be deeply involved not just in rnd, but also the delivery side at what point do your priorities, the priorities of the foundation end up becoming the priorities for the world, and you've described a sort of a series of unintended consequences that pull you in deeper and deeper to. Ultimately, the work of governments in no case should countries depend on our philanthropy or any other philanthropy to solve a basic need? We can accelerate the RND and so yes, by spending money on malaria supposed to. Some. Fancy. Vacation or something. Yes. The world's resources are going more into malaria now than they did before and those million deaths are now down four, hundred thousand and so yes our values to change what gets funded in this economy and malaria just. was in my view grossly underfunded. You said it was either like it could be either malaria or a luxury. Good. But there's like a lot in between there and do you ever think maybe I. Should Turn My Lens on disinformation or wealth inequality or racism in the United States. Well we spend. We have two big things. We do one of inequity in the US, which is lot about education, and then there's global health I do believe you really have to focus and become expert. We're basically saving a life for less than a thousand dollars per life saved. These miraculous interventions in other fields. People have brackets interventions through the giving pledge. Make sure lots of plant perceived these high impact things some problems. Government's spending way more than plant. Can haven't been able to solve. So mostly flat becomes up with pilots pilots. Of a mentoring program pilots of. How schools could organize a bit differently. So we do a Lotta that but once we've committed to Milorad occasion we're not going to abandon that. Sadly, there's very few fields where you can save millions of lives for small sums of money. Bill Gates is Co Chair of the Gates Foundation.
Here's what time Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S preorders start
"Last week obviously, our top story was the xbox one s stuff and also the pricing on Xbox, one s and ex that stuff leaked as it turns out, we now know a week earlier Microsoft intended of so it wasn't gonNA come out that week it was gonna come out actually this week so that all would have happened yesterday I guess. in in the wake of that, the walking katter buddy there who is back on twitter leaks, the launch video in multiple parts that they would have used if they were able to launch the way they had wanted to, and it's just Phil Spencer sitting in a chair talking to someone else they'd do some game demos and stuff and. you know the videos about the console and everything, but it's kind of if you're into this stuff, it's kind of cool just go check that out.
DOJ Charges Chinese Nationals With Hacking More Than 100 Companies

The Department of Justice and FBI announcing three indictments alleged hacking scheme by part of a group known as a PT 41, loosely tying to the Chinese government that allegedly targeted 100 U.

Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rose in the five Chinese nationals now wanted the Malaysian nationals arrested with officials seeking extradition. Federal prosecutors say they've also been working with American companies like Microsoft and Facebook and efforts to thwart continued hacking attempts. Jeff Man, also
Former IBM CEO weighs in on TikTok deal
"Dance to find a way to restructure Tic Tacs. U. S operations or face US shutdown is looming with Secretary Venusian, saying it has to be resolved by this weekend, and reports are that Oracle is the partner trying to get that deal done. Welcome. Now, someone who is no stranger to doing big tech deals with Chinese Sam Palmisano was for many years. IBM is President Seo, including when the company's sold. It's PC business. So long go back in 2005. We welcome now back to Bloomberg. Great to have you here, Sam. So I say you've actually been through this process. Give us what you learned from that process that Oracle maybe facing right now. Well, thank you, Devon. Thank you for having me. I mean the process itself. Let me just frame it on the sense that we had a period time What they were better relations relations between the two countries. I mean, China, the United States and China was also in a different phase of their growth strategy, and they were still inclined to create global businesses that could be held in China that could expand Beyond their domestic market, so the circumstances were quite different than they are today. Having said that it's an extremely complicated process is run by Treasury. That's a fair process. They make a recommendation to the president states for approval. But normally at least in our case in the process, it becomes political. In that case, then, basically because we were signed an asset that we believe was just going to be commoditized. It was not a lot of technical differentiation and a PC as you see today, but fundamentally of the various parties on the hill got engaged, and it made it complicated, which meant we had to go through a second review, which prolonged everything, which puts the deal in jeopardy issue. They say time kills deals, but fundamentally, we hung in there and we got approval from both governments would perceive it. It's clear and nothing else is clear. It's clear that whatever Tic Tac has is not commoditized, use your word. Whether it's the algorithms being used, or the date of the personal data, which seemed to be the real center piece of the concern of national security, and therefore this deal is more complicated. How you really protect those data. Is that the big sticking point as far as you can tell I think it isyou know, I really do think it's It's a combination of the algorithms and the personal data on the the amount of the personal data and that's called the uses of the personal data now, their solutions that could be having been shutting people down those sorts of things, and I really do think that There's a pragmatic solution on the table that perhaps both governments could approve. That would at least take one issue off the temple in the U. S China relations and Let me explain what I mean by that, the current what I read anyway. Like you. We only know it's been reported, is that bike dance would maintain majority share of Tic Tac, but they would create a global entity that would be held the United States. Mark will be a technology partner and provide that infrastructure e clown except which makes sense for article on maybe by doing this sort of thing. If you can solve the issues around personal data and the uses of personal data, protect people's privacy that could be resolved. But you still the government approval on both sides and the Chinese also have the equivalent of devious In their in their processes. Well, yeah, it's clear that the Chinese have really a dog in this fight without a doubt. But is it possible from your experience to really for the US government to really be assured that those personal data cannot go back to the Chinese government is I think that was the thing that we're concerned about, right? Well, absolutely, And basically, you know the complicated thing here. We don't have any details. Let's start with the structure itself. The majority owner being bike dances. It's obviously a Chinese company. What's the government's model? Who's on the board of that house? Did any operate? They have passive investor, right you on and on and on, is in a financial deal. There's an operation if it's an operational deal, because we're complicated now as faras protecting the day that exists if it's all housed in the United States. It's somewhat easier, but nonetheless, I mean information's gonna be flying across the world, So you're always gonna run the risk of any us any nation or really any happier being able to get into that kind of an infrastructure. Now, having said that? I mean, I think a partner like Arco or an IBM enterprise tech companies have a lot of experience of protecting data. They do this for themselves and for large enterprises. Probably a better partner than let's say, your traditional consumer tech company might be able to provide. Well, that's exactly my question, because I don't think of oracles being a consumer facing tech business. Unlike a Microsoft or unlike a Google or a Facebook, why does this make sense strategically for Oracle? Oh, I think it actually thie take about clouds in the emerging architecture for computing in the future are co is way behind as it is, I'd be having made the other traditional enterprise players and leaders as we all know where Amazon and catching up his Microsoft, so to them. It gives them I think an entry point with a very large social media company into the infrastructure. I think we'll give them credibility and cloud and a moving into the future. So from that perspective to teach me that makes a heck of a lot of sense. They're going to be a minority investor. It's almost like an outsourcing deal and in the sense that you operate people's assets for them. But you acquired his assets and the acquisition is access will be equity get only is buy bread, so I don't have any insight to that. So you know they'll make an investment. They'll get the outsourcing of the infrastructure that would be House United States. And that will create jobs. I don't know if it's 25,000 or not. I mean, you're the reason why 25,000 to me. Sounds like a large numbers. Because Facebook is bigas. They are only has 75,000 employees. And finally, Sam. What if, In fact, it does not get approved if in the end President Trump says, I don't like this. What does that mean? Maybe for Oracle, but more importantly, for bike dance. Well, I think at the end of the day, I mean, well, they shut them down. I don't know, You know, I mean, I think quite honestly there ways to solve these problems are national security concerns concerns. I can understand that it's really the bigger issue is protecting protecting people's personal information. In fact, the matter is that David that you go all that information's already been hacked. I mean, I know everybody forgets about the OPM Hack and the IRS hack well that there's a ton of personal information's already been hacked his eyes over the world. I assume in China's well there's tons of personal information are ready on the Internet everyday based upon people's user. Behavior and what they do on the Internet. So I mean, I do think it's necessary and it companies need to protect people's privacy in the data, But I'm not sure that this deal represents what's necessary to solve that problem. Fascinating. Thank you so much salmon. Nobody. I'd rather talk to about this than you. That's former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano. More
The LG Wing 5G phone has a swiveling screen, because it's 2020, so why not?
"The LG wing is the leader in the wacky department these days, and we're happy to report that the LG wing is officially a real thing in the world that exists I l L. G announced the device at an event yesterday. And the LG wing is a smartphone with a swivelling display and Guimba camera. It's part of the new LG explorer project. And they said both an initiative and a category and will include devices to deliver distinctive and yet unexplored usability experiences and starting to get real feelings of like el-jisr modular line. That that, you could have used that same sentence for that module aligned with this with with this line. So I like that LG still has a wacky corner in the office works from home but. that is doing this sort of weird stuff and trying to figure out ways that you can. You can explore unexplored usability experiences. It's like the star, Trek Enterprise of. android phones are so. The specs on this is a it's going to six point eight, inch front display it swivels ninety degrees to. Mode revealing a secondary three point nine inch display underneath it. It's really kind of wonderful when you think about it, you can you can run up on both screen simultaneously. it's all based on this hinge mechanism that was tested over two hundred thousand rotations for five years. So basically, that's five years at one hundred swivels a day which I wonder how many times you would actually swivel per day that's interesting question but I guess they assumed one hundred. So there it is has a thirty two megapixel pop, Selfie, Camera And if There's your popup selfie camera. I do love good pop up camera there it is and if you feel like you have to have this. You'd better be verizon customers because it's give me on verizon first and then. Later this fall no US pricing yet. But in Europe the pricing is around one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine euros. So you can do the math and figure out what that would be dollars which we can do right now we want just to give some sort of sense of to USD. Thank you Google that would be about thirteen, hundred USD. So essentially, you could get, you could get the. Microsoft surface duo or the LG. Wing give or take one hundred bucks. That's kind of the world that we're in right now who are going to try and keep it at that price or if it will be will cheaper or maybe it's subsidized through verizon or whatnot but listen no one will have a phone that looks like your phone if you get the. I'll tell you that right now.
Russia, China, Iran having a red hot go at US political organisations
"Going to begin with a bit of a a tragedy in media, which is team at Reuters the security team at Reuters, we're onto an absolutely cracking story. That they had to hurry up and publish because they caught wind that Microsoft we're about to ruin their party time But yeah, they had a fantastic exclusive here about Russian efforts to target the. Biden. Campaign. yes. Reuters are reporting attacks against the same Biden. Campaign of this company called A. S., K. K. Knickebocker. who provide services for them they appear to be based on Microsoft's cloud and coming under attack from the Gi you fancy bit crew going up against you know people involved in the political world the Reuters reporting his focused on this particular organization. But Microsoft's the level of visibility across cloud infrastructure does seem to suggest that actually it's a much wider campaign going on for some time against a number of organizations across political spectrum in the US. Yeah. I mean Microsoft really did release a fair bit of information. It looks like at two hundred organizations targeted by Gi you. They also detect I detected a Chinese stipe backed group IPT thirty one. Basically invalidate email addresses and profile targets sort of doing recon work and they squashed a bunch of domains being used by the Iranians. It's. The contrast between now and two thousand sixteen right way. This stuff is absolutely being taken seriously. I've heard some people say, Oh, well, this is evidence that Russia's trying to interfere in the election. It's not I mean that that could be what they're trying to do but we don't really know what they're up to for all. We know they gathering intelligence. Yeah and the reports that we're seeing a marked swift information describes a whole bunch of attempting to gain access. We don't know what access was gained as a result of these attempts and then what it was used for like those kind of obscure to spot the sort of things that Microsoft reporting Eric you know exactly what you would expect. Right Password Password Reuse credential stuffing type things. Fishing all the usual sorts of techniques that as you said in two thousand sixteen. Worked very effectively and now in twenty twenty, twenty, nineteen, you know we are much better equipped that much much better equipped. To be able to those things, and this is one of the advantages of people moving a lot of this stuff into the cloud is we do get this kind of central visibility in a way that we we just went getting when everyone was using. You know you're here and hotmail there now there's a much more concentrated intelligence, available Microsoft and more. Of An understanding of why it's important to talk about the Microsoft price goes for all of the attempts here and how you know how frequently they were doing force attempts against various accounts and whatever, and they said that we using a pool of approximately eleven hundred Ip's the majority associated with the tall and an amazing service which I interpret that to mean. Mean Tour Exit nerds right and of course if you're seeing like. Hundreds of thousands of filed log attempts from tour exit nods you would think maybe that's how they caught this year. That's a little bit of giveaway. You know obviously being able to you know pull of exit cards are and be able to correlate that there's a pretty strong indicator and it's just kinda funny. I guess in a way because you know illustrating the very deal use nature of talk. Yeah, and Microsoft's advice. Here's a little bit confusing because they like here's enlisted five hundred and thirty net blocks that are associated with this activity and I'm like, do you mean for like? Is this the other ones that want? Already knew about. This other we had language in the release about how they separating forcing from poss- would spraying and you can tell like the fact that they've made a distinction between those things is the result of a really intense. Twain. Various people. That's that'd be my guess. But you know it's good that this stuff is being turned up right Yeah absolutely I. It's good. It's being spotted and being communicated, and also the defensive options for people like things like enable factor indication and monitor failed loggins like those are things that you know in twenty six were actually difficult for people and now you modular Microsoft's licensing from for. Know a much more straightforward for people to do, which is I guess an
Bill Gates questions FDA's credibility on COVID-19 vaccine
"Bloomberg dot com, Also in Bloomberg dot com. Let's hear a piece of another big interview from the Green Festival. It's with Microsoft founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gate, He chatted with our own. Erik Schatzker, Bloomberg's editor at large part of This festival. In this excerpt, Gates talks about politicizing Cove in 19 treatments and vaccines. Check it out. President Trump has made no secret of his desire to see a covert 19 vaccine soon. Ideally before the November election. How worried are you bill that the approval process is being hijacked by politics. Well, that would be a tragedy and any suggestion that I know politicians, you know, helped create the vaccine, or it's faster because of a politician is a very dangerous thing. You know, we saw with the completely bungled plasma. Statements that you know when you start pressuring people, Teo say, optimistic things. They go completely off the rails. And so the FDA lost a lot of credibility there. No, thank goodness the company's heir, saying that the FDA is open mindedness toe be asked for emergency use license before there's efficacy data. They're not going to seek that that shortcut. Do you still trust the FDA? I think in the FDA, there's a lot of professionals. Historically, just like the CDC was viewed as the best in the world. The FDA have that same reputation is a top notch regulator. But you know, there's been some cracks with some of the things they've said at the commissioner level. Hopefully, the staff
Oracle's Deal For TikTok May Not Include A Purchase
"Over the weekend we found out that Oracle has struck up a partnership with tiktok for the video sharing companies, US operations. We're still learning about how a potential deal would be set up, and we're also waiting to hear regulators on both sides of the Pacific will sign off on it but in the meantime we thought we'd take a step back. These two companies might seem like a bit of an unlikely pairing. So what to Oracle in Tiktok seen each other in the first place my colleague Aaron Tilly joins me to help us out with that Aaron thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. Okay. So a lot of people might have heard the name Oracle are probably not so familiar with what it actually does. So can you just start by telling us a little bit more about the company? Yeah. So it's a decades old legacy player in the technology industry really got it. Start selling to the CIA and intelligence agencies in the US focusing on database technology. So this is how complex data's stored on servers and you know really important critical technology but really in the weeds, the infrastructure of an organization's technology stack and you know throughout decades, they became a powerhouse in selling these databases sit on a company's data center, and throughout the years they've expanded to business applications that sit on top of those databases things like you know, human resources are resource management, kind of software, but they're real core franchise are these databases and storing data now. Called relational databases Oracle isn't the only one interested in Tiktok. Microsoft was also in the running. So from Ted talks perspective, do we know at Oracle has that Microsoft was maybe lacking it wasn't so much what Microsoft was lacking. It was more about what the companies were asking in the case of Oracle. They were more lenient in more willing to be a technology partner. Whereas Microsoft had much more ambitious plans for tiktok in wanted to acquire all of it including. It's all important secret formula, which is this algorithms. Oracle's just focused on creating a cloud business and Microsoft has a very loud large cloud business. An oracle is seeing this opportunity to put themselves on the map plus Oracle has a pre existing relationship with the trump administration, right? Yeah it's it's unclear to what extent the relationship between or coal and the trump administration had. The final decision here it was bite dances decision deciding that Oracle was the winner but certainly, Oracle's relationship with the trump administration hasn't heard. It's CEO Saffir. Cats has been with the trump administration and partner at the trump administration since the beginning in all of this leads to generally good feeling about Oracle, from the trump administration and around this purchase. And what about from Oracle's perspective what they see Intech Talk? For, them it. They see this as an opportunity to kick start their cloud business. So this would be. TIKTOK putting its application on its data center infrastructure, all of its hardware and software that it rents out to third party companies that the cloud model this would be a key player to get going Oracle's cloud. So this for them is a way of kick-starting their cloud. So this is a play in that regard. and I wonder if you could contextualized this in what's happening in cloud computing right now who is Oracle competing with and could this partnership help get there? Yes, the cloud computing industry has been around for A. Couple of decades, but it's really starting to pick up these days. Amazon really pioneered the model of called the public cloud. were, they rent out their infrastructure that third parties way back in two, thousand six and they are by far the market leader they have above forty percent market share the next comer in the market shares Microsoft, with around eighteen percent and so oracle's really late coming to this and they're naive and fifth place in terms of market share in this business. So they have a long ways to go and Tiktok won't bring them probably anywhere close to where Amazon and Microsoft. Is, but it does give them a certain credibility and that gives them a really high profile name in that's important building. These kinds of businesses is to have proof points. They can point you can show customers and say, we know how to do this, and of course, this partnership between Oracle in Tiktok is by no means a sure thing. Can you just talk us through the potential hurdles from both Chinese and American regulators? Yeah. There's plenty right now we're waiting to hear. From the Commerce Department on what regulations they're going to set around an executive order that trump put out there few weeks ago. This is an acceptable to them. The Treasury Department has very been very involved and we need to see if the satisfies the trump administration's demands for this Tiktok issue and earlier trump had been saying that it had to be sold to an American company. In this case, it doesn't appear like Oracle is going by tiktok outright more be technology. Partner. So we need to see if that satisfies trump's demands as it relates to national security that he said, it was about an on the Chinese side. There wasn't export law from China a few weeks ago about the exporting and purchase of of Algorithm suggested Algorithms that talk owns that does not appear to be part of the deal with Oracle so that will likely satisfy China, but we'll still have to see if they're willing to let this deal go through it all. All right our reporter Aaron telling thanks so much for joining. US Yeah.
Oracle Deal With TikTok to Undergo U.S. Security Review
"The Chinese owner of the popular video APP Tiktok has chosen oracle over Microsoft to be trusted technology provider in the United States. The trump administration has flagged tick tock as a national security risk over worries about funneling user data to the Chinese government, and it is threatened to ban Tiktok by September twentieth unless it sells its US business treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin told CNBC. The next step is. For the Committee on foreign investment in the United States or Syfy for short to review the deal there's also a commitment to create tectonic global as a US, headquartered company with twenty thousand new jobs. I'm not going to go into the entire proposal. We will be reviewing that at the safest committee this week, and then we'll be making a recommendation to the president and reviewing it with them. TIKTOK denies that it's a national security risk and is suing to stop the administration from acting the threatened to ban.

The tick-tock on TikTok
"There There is is word word today today to to the the deal deal has has been been reached reached the the deciding deciding the the fate fate of of the the Chinese Chinese video video sharing sharing tiktok tiktok early early contender contender Microsoft Microsoft and and Walmart, Walmart, and and part part out. out. The The US US database database giant giant Oracle Oracle is is apparently apparently in in the the deal deal is is not not exactly exactly a a sale. sale. It's It's a a partnership, partnership, but but there there is is hope hope it's going to meet President Trump's requirement that China divest itself of that part of the company. However. Comma there could be less to this deal than meets. Oracle's is because China state media is reporting that one thing that won't come along with said partnership is the algorithm that makes tiktok. So addictive and thus lucrative from Shanghai Marketplace Jennifer pack has the latest TIKTOK has been one of the most downloaded APPs in the US. It's full of short and snappy videos that stream on a loop to users in over one hundred and fifty countries videos like this cute clip of kindergartners in China bouncing basketballs in sync. It was widely circulated on Tiktok and its Chinese version dogging every time someone likes or swipes on a video like that one the data is fed to the APPs parent company by dense. It's machines used the data to learn what users want to watch next much like other social media. APPS. But by dance has been investing in this technology for years and the result an APP that can tailored content for users within seconds Shanghai User Oh. Young Thai says she's hooked. Whistle Man. She says, she limits herself to only thirty minutes a day on talks China version building. Otherwise, she'll keep watching health videos and never go to sleep her partner to Tanjung. Tells me he gets neck cramps from watching in clips on his cell phone. They are among the four hundred million daily showing users in China and tens of millions of American. Tick talkers whose viewing data forms the base of the algorithm behind Tiktok and it's extremely valuable. Says Tech journalist do Chen with the Chinese new site paying West. They use the data to improve the content recommendation. And cultivates user loyalties, and that user loyalty might be at stake if Tiktok gets passed off to a US company without the key to its rhythm. So even if Oracle gets to run tick talks US arm, the deal might not be a slam dunk after all

There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah.

So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure. This story in like a whole bunch of other like believable stories like this are in your new book money. The true story of a made up thing. This episode of the indicator was produced by Nick.

"All one word at checkout. sperry software work in email, not on email. So, we could talk about this to Microsoft's push into the personal space with everything. If we want to go news, we had one other topic. We're GONNA. Talk about, but some of the news is kind of interesting to into the personal space like personal teams like personal teams. And did you see this article? I'm going to send it to you right now. About. Bring the power of tasks into your personal life to stay organized. Did you see this one too so we can talk about personal team, so let's start with personal. Teams took personal teams. I'll be darned if I now, so the teams client the mobile clients specifically recently gained a capability where you can now signing with an MSA account and not be signed into a teams tenant. So in the past you could absolutely sign in with an MSA. Microsoft account a regular consumer Microsoft account as long as that Microsoft account had been invited through, be sharing in or whatever they call it does. He essentially use a free guest? Kennel? Yes, the teams. Yes, so like in my case you took my g mail accounts. You added into a team inside your tenant, and that meant I could sign into teams, theoretically with my g mail accounts, but everything broke. Yes, said theoretically don't ever change the username for your MSA folks and interact that way, but now what happens is if you sign in with an MSA on a mobile device so I've only tried this from my iphone. iphone just to kind of see what it was all about the experience inside an experienced things like that, you'll be presented not only with your list of tenants. If you are part of a tenant with your say, there will also be another option in there. That's called personal, and if you signed into personal, it doesn't present you with any tenant level features, but you can do things like chat and video calls back and forth with other MSA accounts. Yes, so it gets really interesting, I think you're in the same boat. I have a personal account into Microsoft count that both have the same email address easy. ID's yes. To both in teams tenant so I have like a personal one. That's my personal one. Then I have another one that is. Tied to that to count. It's really weird. But yeah, this personal thing is interesting, and we were talking about it just from a pure technology standpoint because. As we've talked about the four are so much of the stuff is driven by office three sixty five services. How they're doing all this? What's all is going on in the background with these personal tenants because you don't really have it office three, sixty, five ten, that everything's tied to so as I go through my chat chats. I'm guessing they're just awesome. As your storage files are pulling from my one drive calendar is most likely pulling from my personal calendar, but then as you invite other people to. To join your calendar is not pulling from your personal calendar. Where have anything in my personal calendar? Everything is in my work calendar I have a lot of stuff in my personal calendar, and there's nothing there. There's nothing that pulls from it unless it would specifically be pulling from my outlook calendar, which I don't use that one. Yeah, so calendar does not pull from it, but there's no lake. Underlying teams tenants so as you invite because you can invite other people to collaborate with the ideas now you can use teams for. Scheduling stuff with the family for sharing files with the family or with friends. Making calls, they now actually have a task. Hey Scott said to me. Yes, but with wants to chat with you because it up, but which hide which bend say hi to. That was my personal one night you meant to talk to. Him Ben. Let me send it, so it's doing some contact. Discovering things to which is which is cool right, but it's kind of interesting because. Like I'm assuming if you share files in a chat, it's just automatically setting up some sharing on one drive, but it's gotta be implementing team slightly differently under the covers because of that yeah. It's a different type of experience, so go into that chat that I just started with you on your iphone, so you'll have the chat tab, and then there's the whole dashboard tab at the top there, too, so if you go into dashboard then I can create a shared calendar. We can set up a safe which is a place to securely store sensitive information like passwords and IDs in your own personal safe. It's protected by encryption. Upload a file, so we're going to play with us. We're doing this live while we chat. Why can share with you here? Here's a picture myself from a drone preparing the file the following Oh interesting. Okay so get this Scott. I just went to sheriff I with you, and it's the following. Characters are not allowed back slash colon star, question mark quote greater than less than pipe, pound and percent site that sounds familiar doesn't know because those are all allowed in one drive now now those are allowed drive for share point one drive personal. Personal still has character restrictions. Okay, let me try to find. Here here's a PDF. FOR SCAN DOT uploading. So where's it uploading to because I? Think the files that gave me the option to choose from were already in my one drive. So I added a file to our files TAB. Now you've done it and I don't know where it uploaded to. So it does give us. It's teams functionality than to chat, so it's like one to one chat, but still has what do chatter one many chat now here's the thing mixing up the words when you go into the chat in the mobile APP and signed into a personal account, your first prompt is to go to the chat tab and tap here to create your first group, which is really a group chat, not an office, three sixty five group, or anything else that you might have thought as a group, so can I add other people to the group chat. You started church. Try It nope I. Don't think so chat dashboard..

It had was set for must sign for delivery. Home delivery, but the. Fedex guy came and knocked on the door. Open the door and he's standing there with his dad and I'm looking at him and I. As do you want me to sign? It looks at me. He Goes Scott. I said yes, because NAP, forget. Okay. Got, it, have you ordered any pizza? Since the whole lockdown for delivery now, but we have done delivery from a couple of different places, so we just got like Papa. John's the other day and it's interesting. 'cause same type of thing like they'll come up to your door and. We have doorbell, so we can kind of watch some of the stuff like they pull the pizza the pizza carrier that's keeping it warm. Nip at the pizza. Carry on the ground in front of your door. Put Your Pizza's on it, and then like backup six eight ten feet from our ring, the doorbell, and then back up like six eight ten feet from the door, and you open it like they're like there's pizza and you can reach down and pick it up and it's like this awkward wave of high can't even really come close to use. I gave you a tip on the credit card. Otherwise, it just have to Kinda. Throw money on the ground for you. And then you close the door and they come back and pick up the pizza. The pizza was sitting down and all that it's interesting. So the weird thing I've noticed during these times I don't do we. We do a ring doorbell. But nobody uses the doorbell, they'll walk up. They're all still recorded. It's got a big light on it like it's lit up Blake. Push this button and still don't use the doorbell. They still knock on. The door kills me. So speaking of doorbells. We have an interesting issue with ours the other day it wouldn't stop ringing. Got Stuck or if there was a software glitch or something, but someone rang the doorbell, and like for the next half hour every five minutes or doorbell would ring in. It wasn't just that the doorbell would ring leaked. The APP would alert us because that traders apple, so our phones or like there's someone at the door like what there's nobody there. And then we just sat there and watched, because we didn't know if it was neighbor, kids messing around or something and we're like Chernoff. There's nobody coming up to our door and the doorbell just keeps ringing so I went out rebooted the doorbell and it's been fine sense. Things that you don't hear in the past head, gartside and reboot the doorbell. Yes, so with all of that. We're very easily getting distracted at the beginning episodes lately. Let's impart some knowledge, so there have been some deprecation 's going on. You remember open at X. Open addicts. No, have you ever taken an open x class Nope I. Bet you have so lots of learning partners us open addicts as kind of a mook for course where delivery and open at x runs on Microsoft, Azure and it used to be a big part of Microsoft. Learning properties, so if you ever went and bought a class in the past like say you. We're GONNA go. you know, do your Asher certification or you were going to do like your Moss. Certification what whatever it was to. Say Moss certification from certification. Do have a certification APP i. know you gotTa. Mostert vacation. Wonder how many people know what losses that listen to this Everyone should mosses not to stuff that grows on trees, but the certification. Do you realize what Moss was? Years ago now it's not that bad. I mean Scott there were people that might be listening to a podcast that were like. Twelve years old. And they're now working in a professional industry. There may be people that don't actually know what losses all right well. Mosses the stuff that trees them, but anyway if you've ever taken a micro certification, you may have run into open at X., or some of the course where that comes out of there was watching videos or reading articles or things like that open at x. going away. It's being collapsed into Microsoft learn so the impact there is if you ever took a course in open. It is time for you to go sign into it, so it's Alexei Dot. Microsoft DOT COM go sign into open addicts, and specifically the Ayrshire version of it and go download all yours certificates, or complete any of your in-progress training and things like that, because it is all going away on July, thirty first, and it does not appear that it is going to be automatically migrated as. As far as your certificates or status and things like that over to the new Microsoft learn, which is where everything is being consolidated to interesting satellite me have an azure fundamental certification over there because I was playing around with Oh kinetics at one point soon have to go look at that and see if I have anything in there because I yeah, I. Miss That, so how much! Are they like on this whole habit of convenient people a month notice before they kill services. Well let's see I got this email on July first at eleven thirty six PM and the service will be retired on July thirty first twenty twenty. I can only go by the email. I have one month notice kind of like another service. I don't use it, but. It raised some news with mixer getting killed off with a month.

"Things like valley. spelunker where I go to one drive in a web browser I click on shared and drill down six levels to find the thing I want I. Just want to right here, right? It makes sense kind of like the fact that you can have access like you said to all those files, and you don't necessarily have to sink every share point site you have access to. This is lending you. Pick and choose what you want to sink of those things that are shared with. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, more choice more flexibility, good things, so is this out today? Gradually rolling out in public preview and we've will be available worldwide by the end of September twenty twenty. Through like? My test tenant and I. Don't see it there. I haven't tried in Mine I. was just jumping into mine as well because I have not shared with me, removed from my shared list. Yeah, I don't think I have it in mine either yet so I don't know exactly where it doesn't that roadmap, but he said September I mean it's. It's beginning of July. Next three months. You should have it there, so here's a fun one here's. Here's a fun limitation of thinking about like sharing files and folders and things like that. If you, so all those files are now shared with you a folder. They technically live in another users storage, so if you share folder with me and I think it to my desktop. If I delete the files from my desktop from the sink, they're also going to delete near share, which makes total sense right because that's where. I mean that's the way all the other products too right. Well. No, they ask to his certain degree. They ask great. Five is shared folder and dropbox and I. Go to delete something it says do I wanNA delete it just for me like do I want to remove it from my local storage or do I want to remove it for everyone which is different? Yes, that is true I had gotten. If they do ask in this one, it does not look like yes, they are immediately sent to the recycle bend. Of the user who shared it with you there is no prompted appears. Yup, the other thing about that is if you read that section about deleting so this entire article focuses exclusively on share point online, one drive for business Microsoft teams, but if you go down to that leading section, it talks about one.

It gets a little hairy probably could have set up the routing. Soleil went over the point to site VPN up into the azure through as some net, and then back over that site to site VPN to hit their local domain controller. Obviously, there's some risk there and that if that network connection goes down, you can't get to a domain controller so having one up. Up In azure gives them a nice secondary backup domain controller are they're not as dependent on that site to site? VPN, but you're routing tables to get people routing through all the different, some nets, v Nets and all of that can get a little wild as well. Run away from you quickly, and then all of a sudden near. Just you've implemented asymmetric routing and nothing works anyway. Yeah, or something breaks, and you can't remember where everything is configured. Never happened. No, not at all. We don't speak from experience there one bit. Yeah, so that was. That's my story and again it all seems to be working. I just have to get that power Shell Command to actually think the files because it appear to be triggering it, or for some reason, the Power Jacques Command wasn't picking up one of the changed. Changed Files Yeah, I mean you've got to invoke it, and then it still has to go out and reach out through the Croup and talked to the server and capture everything, and then get it across the wire. So there is still it's not immediate meal. This was like seven or eight hours after well, this commanded run like seven or eight times and. And there was still a file. It wasn't sinking to user to close it. It's a lot because it was after eight hours of waiting, and then it was there the next day, so we'll see I'll go dig through that and figure that out, but it would be nice if they could just authenticate against Azure ad and not need that separate domain service for the as your files, but I'm guessing there's something there with the whole m b and the fact that Azure ad is a real active directory. Welcome to legacy authentication stuff. Yes, we just need all share point because that takes here the sync issues. The only thing you don't have is you. Don't have it as a map network drive us.

Apps for Business Business Standard and then all of the office three sixty five enterprise as well as education skews which is super awesome disinfect. Yeah so things like advanced either. Very are only in those enterprise plans. There's probably some small businesses that would use it. Do you think like lawyer. Some law firms. That are probably. There's a lot of law firms that are probably less than three hundred users that may have a need for advanced discovery just due to their line of work. Some of that stuff isn't going to get included with your office. Three sixty five plan or Your Business. Premium plans so. I can't remember the other one I was going to do. You have that turn. Data loss prevention is one that also tends to know that when I did look at that one is included in everything they loss prevention is e discovery is not or advanced discovery the business premium plans do include in place holds an in place he discovery. Just not some of those more advanced features so really go take a look at this risk. Descriptions don't look at this at a super high level but yeah you have to avoid the marketing and the price and do all of that at a lower level they actually used to provide excel spreadsheets for these where you could do kind of pivots and filters and sorts. I've always found it helpful to go in. Make my own for those. So it is possible to still copy and paste the tables and things just out of the directly out of the or the mark down the on rendered markdown. That's offering get hub. Then put that into excel and be able to do to do those pivots based on how you want them. Because there's going to be a lot of noise in there that you can just kind of cut the noise out and get it to be what it needs to be right. So the first thing I do I copy and paste all dozen to excel and create a table and then I filter on the skew. I'm looking for for all the nose. So just show me everything under business premium that is set to know because that means that's not included and then I can. It makes it a lot easier to start from there when you're comparing what's a no in that column. I say yes. In one of my enterprise caloms. Yup just go ahead deletes. Excuse you don't want You get to where you need to be exactly. It's a little rough. I think you're in a potentially a little bit of a handicap position. Maybe coming in a small business and somebody like you are is saying well. Your best bet is to copy and paste from html into a spreadsheet and figure it out versus being an enterprise where you're buying thousands and thousands of seats you're going to have a salesperson at. Microsoft is very keen to sell those to you. And they're helping you figure that out or you have a finance guy that relieve likes excel and if you say he can go build me some really fancy excel spreadsheet. They'll light go hide in their cubicle for hours to create an incredible excel spreadsheet for. You know mark cubicle Spanish. No offense to anybody that's in finance and really likes their excel spreadsheets yet but yeah we didn't even get into our last blog article about securing everything your practical guide to securing remote work. I think. Security's maybe that's one. We can hold off and have as a conversation at another time because it does. I think it goes a little outside the boundaries of what you know when I put it in there about what we're GonNa talk about. We'LL GET INTO SPECIFICS. There of some things that you may or may not want to consider turning on like what are must haves versus not must have if you have access to these types of features like if you've got the licensing you're definitely going to want to turn some things on like full stop. They should just be on by default. Microsoft not might not turn them on by default for you. But they'll certainly be very vocal and I think you and I would be too about. Hey Let's light up the things that really make sense. Yes absolutely so to be continued next week because we don't have a topic for next week yet.

I believe in some of the lower skews so if you are a small business in you want to do voice calling you can just licensed business plans as well now and not worry about the enterprise plan just to give voice.

Three sixty five three the F. Juan. It's in the Microsoft. Three sixty five eighty three the Microsoft three sixty five business but not business premium did not realize they renamed that one.

What's your plan going to be there to move things move? Things were moved things through if you're gonNA move to G. Suite and get away from office. Are you giving up all your office licensing too because if you're maintaining your office licensing and you're already in license like what. What are you GONNA do? Just turn on the exchange component. You can't do that because you're still using teams it's kind of like it's a big mess as it professionals in the cloudera sometimes. It feels like we don't speak the same language as the rest of the organization so when stakeholders from finance or other departments start asking about a specific project or teams azure costs. They.

"Changing the products I think ultimately all this aligns to giving better prescriptive if guidance if the teams that built Microsoft teams want it to be all things to all people. That's fine but you better tell me the five or six ways that it can be all things to all people and it can't just be the marketing scenarios for it it's got to be clear deployment guide ends. It's got to be clear operational guidance. Guidance like tell me how to stand it up and then somebody will come back. And I've been guilty of this too right I. I've worked with customers. Who say Gimme the best practice? Let me out. It's like well I can tell you how to be the best bank in the world but I really can't tell you how to be the best retailer right that the best grocery store whatever it is. That's not my background where I've been I get some with that but somebody ultimately has to come out and maybe just say hey I can tell you how to be the best widget maker in the world and you know what if you're a customer and you come in when you buy it and you don't make widgets at least maybe you can see the scenario and align it to whatever it is that you actually do out there okay so this works for obviously SAS products. That's what we're kind of talking about there. For something. Like azure though that is the past. Let's talk about platform as a service. Can you really do that as easily early with that. Because they're they need flexibility so that people can build products on top of past service. Do you have to shift something something there or kind of like going back to windows windows core windows. That's about example. Let's just stop with that. Pass those services have to be flexible so that people can build whatever they might be trying to build on past. Do you think a lot of this feedback is coming more from paths services or. Is it more those office. Three sixty five though SAS services where you expect to buy them turn them on and not have to do anything well. I think it's a little bit of both also. Certainly you feel more pain with those SAS services where you've just bought it and you expect to turn it on and not do anything but in Ayrshire land or aws wherever as you go ahead and buy a pass service like a web APP great. I bought a web APP. You know you have to deploy your product or your website on top half of it or or your container or whatever. It happens to be so if they took something like that though again very clear like just line in the sand operational guidance like if I go into Azure and I want to know what is the performance of and Asher web APP. Well now I've got to go learn about APP service plans. I've got to go learn what small medium and large actually equates to you in all the different regions across like hey what kind of Vm. Is that actually running in the background. and Microsoft Comeback has eight doesn't matter we manage the VM. For you but for some customers it does matter because they already run a workload on premises where they can directly Acquai- we CPU and Ram to performance. Got US so they don't want to go through the exercise figuring out what is an ACU. How does an ACU MAP to? VM AM series. How does it Vm? Series map back to an APP service plan. and Oh my gosh. Why did I have to do all that data and then they want to tie in analytics and they have to go pull well and just completely blanked on the as your service?.

"This was interesting so and I took it a little bit differently than you did. Then maybe it's because I'm a consultant because I'd like to figure stuff out but my reaction. I think a bunch of other reactions from people were to do that. Because of the breadth of the Microsoft products and the ways they can be integrated together. The ways you can use different ones. It is is overwhelming and it takes a lot of effort to stay up to date. I'm learning new stuff every day. I have immigrated stuff together when you look at the way. I'm using AZURE AUTOMATION FOR SOME OF MY GOVERNANCE. I don't know maybe Microsoft did think of. Hey we can run off three sixty five power. Shell scripts now and Azure automation and tied in with Mike South. Three sixty five. Maybe they didn't but how does Microsoft how do you get some of those hacks and work arounds only relying on Microsoft and because every customer is different the way they use these may be different. So if you only hear from Microsoft to be honest Mike acceptors deploying this and a lot of an uprise tenants. They're not deploying or they're not working closely with the one hundred one hundred and fifty person shops and there's so many different ways to use this that Kim Microsoft truly give a one hundred percent prescriptive guidance the way that some of these people may want they want to sit here and have Microsoft. Tell them exactly what to do. But can you really do that. With the amount of flexibility that's in the platform in the the myriad of ways that people are using it. All right so I'll come back if people are complaining that it's too flexible. Maybe it's too flexible people. Maybe you have built a little bit of the wrong thing. They're like if you've made it so hard to use that. You can't provide prescriptive active guidance. It doesn't matter if it's the right guidance or the wrong guidance like in today's world finding prescriptive guidance based on that stance you're never gonNA to get it and if you can't provide that prescriptive guidance. I don't think you can actually tell me the why of why you built a why. That just doesn't work out and that that doesn't align those those two things don't comport to me and come back so you know there are always going to be customers who are one offs there the special snowflakes and the rainbow with twelve colors. The Unicorn. whatever it is those exist but quite often with this world where we buy shrink wrap things or ask products they really only should have like one or two ways to work right if you go by salesforce for crm. It's pretty clear what it does. How does it and then if you want to extend it you sit here and you go over into the forest platform or you purchase this module or you go out into this vendor ecosystem and you get these things but if you just want to light up salesforce for kind of course crm scenarios? Hey It's you know it's priced fairly clearly arguably more clear within dynamics and it's got a straightforward method to implemented. You want to do meetings in the cloud with video and audio if you looked at the way maybe somebody like zoom positions themselves versus teams for meetings which one's going be clearer for you to figure out what it does and how to get started with it. Yeah exactly I mean they're going to go to zoom. Zoom is very focused on we do online meetings and and Webinars so now you've run into the thing where all of a sudden because Microsoft designed the products to do all the things for all the people they mixed enterprise and consumer and small business and large business and medium business and monster business all together in the same place you know. That's certainly a part of it at least if if Israel's like it is right if you could give me prescriptive guidance like you said for being a small business and on boarding to office three sixty five like I want the next next next. The operational checklist where Microsoft feels. This is how I could on board to outlook and I'm not saying like on board to you outlook and use it. The Best I can. I'm just saying onboard to it and get it on. And then I can figure some things out later. But aligned to the real world not a convoluted food made up scenario where here's how you onboard to outlook and you can share your status from outlook two teams using this ad in and then your sales manager can come through team. I don't care about any of that I just WanNa know. How do I let license? How do I on board the user and how do I deploy the product? So going that route do you think taking something like teams. Let's take teams because teams tries to be everything and all the products for all the people should they have stayed with outlook for mail and messaging. skype is four. Four chat and phone calls in teams is for meetings. Should it have been or could there be an argument made that it should be broken down into more more one product. One US not this teams where it's meetings.

"Poor Click the link in the show notes below right so I have a few thoughts based on what you said do you think. One of them is fundamentally Microsoft's Christoph Documentation and this kind of goes back to what I feel like you kind of started with is the documentation that you get from. Microsoft Fundamentally League is somewhat geared more towards the how and not the why that is a good portion of it and quite often my take on it. It's it's geared towards the wrong how it's always geared towards getting started and getting started with what quite often to me feels slake a convoluted scenario or something that's not aligned to the way I see customers consuming Microsoft products out in the real world. They they often feel like they were designed in a vacuum and then you know the products released and then we have to integrate over time on an answer to a problem over in the tech a community or a forum or someplace else rather than actually just having clear and concise guidance in the first place like why did you build this. Okay okay you built it for this. Why now how do I do that? Well I guess they would have to know the why for why they built it because they obviously saw a I need somewhere. Do you think some of this too is Microsoft's reliance and partners in consultants. Because I mean let's look at the sheer scale of the Microsoft products. There's so many. Hundreds of them across azure office. Three sixty five makes up three sixty five got massive. How do they go about creating documentation? That's that in depth to cover those scenarios or do they just need to go a little little bit deeper or do they truly rely on consultants and partners to really understand a lot of that technical depth so they don't a father with that because they're relying a lot more on consultants and maybe the message. Does it get relayed to customers. I don't know this is kind of one. We're I'm I'm thinking on my feet here. Goes actually literally standing up. Yeah I certainly think that some of it. There's always the as a Microsoft partner somebody who's been in the partner ecosystem for a long time. Microsoft does rely heavily on their partners. Now I'm not sure that's always clearly communicated to customers immerse if you put on your customer not hey. I'm a partner to bill my customers just from a pure customer perspective. I already bought the product product from Microsoft. Why do I need to go and pay a partner to help me to play it? Because I'm paying Microsoft for this. They should why can Microsoft not tell me how to deploy their own product and sometimes for customers like I've I've worked with some larger enterprise customers with that turns into oh well we can bring MCS in well great great but MCS is consulting services right. They are services they're part of the field they're effectively and other consultants. There are a whole different business unit. Mike right they're or not the actual people that built it telling you how to do it and get it out there and push it forward so if the answer for are you know the majority of products ends up being well. You bought it and now you need to go buy a consultant to as a customer. How do you even begin to you rationalize that cost up front and would you ever really want to buy Microsoft thing again? If that was the answer that was just on the marketing page because when you go and buy office his three sixty five you go to the pricing page and you say I need this many F- flight senses or Eli Senses or Business License or whatever they are and then you just by those skews and you you expect it to kind of work and light up and do what it's going to do and that's just not the case. You need to immediately reach out to somebody else and ask ask for help. If you're not deeply ingrained in it and I think you have to pay a lot for that expertise and that's okay like people should absolutely be consumed compensated for for their knowledge. I'm not saying that you know you're not you're paying somebody to turn the rents you're paying them for the thirty years of knowledge and having turned that wrench bunch of times in the past so that is valuable but D- Anita in every situation or should you feel like that's the way it's going that you that you always do need it in every situation I think for a lot of the customers I interact with particular unlike the training and enablement side. They're always asking us for more real world scenarios like. Hey It's great that you showed me how to do this thing. But how does this apply to my environment which actually doesn't look that different than in other environments. Because you know I'm a financial services institution so we go out to all the other financial services you know like you're working with the Credit Union Union and all the other credit unions are doing the same type of Credit Union type things right if they're consuming the same product. But you can't get that knowledge out there anywhere and I get that because I have. I've had multiple customers where I'm interacting with them. We're talking to through stuff like and I'm going to go to office three sixty five myself three sixty five. Because that's where I tend to live a lot is the plane teams or our customers. I've talked with just rolling out share point in terms of sites it's a navigation and hubs sites and all that and the question I always get and I think this ties directly into this is what's Microsoft's best practice for deploying the service service it goes back to the how. How should we do this? Based on what Microsoft's guidance is around complete deployment and a push to go live of share point or push to live of teams. I want step by step instructions of the best way to do this. Yeah well I think some of that is is and that's another thing is you potentially may never get that guidance because of the way some of the teams approach product delivery today so as an example project CORTEX announced that kind of brand new product. Ready to go ready to come out. So Microsoft has announced that they want to bring customers in like early adopters to the CORTEX program as a part of bringing early adopters in they specifically called out so that we only want people who effectively are going to be nice to the product right. They're going to go with us. They're going to participate with engineering and they're going to be okay with these is kind of course scenarios and we really want to validate push through like okay but you might go through a six month interruption. Like that without ever getting like truly negative feedback acker figuring out. Why another customer like? It's not going to work for them based on on the constructs through the constraints and all of a sudden. You've got another products that came out as an island. It's not natively integrated into the rest of the things that feels like it was bolted on top. Whatever it happens to be? It's a very difficult place for customers. Customers to land. I understand where Microsoft comes in as a vendor and they certainly have some issues on their side but ultimately like if customers are buying these things. Then you've you've got a bigger problem as a vendor yeah I agree as it professionals and the cloud era. Sometimes that feels likely.

"Off teams commercial cloud try license. Going to be converted added to the exploratory experience. Are they going to wait. Until after April of two thousand twenty to start breeding them. So that in theory. You're only having to do veep. Deep to of teams commercial cloud trial because there were a lot of changes between those two because the team's commercial cloud trial was like exchange foundation and that's to the plan one. It was share point kiosk. And now it's going to be a line and there's a lot more services now included an exploratory Tori so that whole switch between all these different versions of your Microsoft teams commercial cloud could get a little goofy so if you are using this Jason Planning on trialing it for the whole year. You may want to keep an eye on some of those licenses and when you get kicked over if you get moved over or maybe you may even have some manual steps. They're to move to the new one. You may short answer is like who knows the pray and even the names of Lake Askew in the way it shows up in the in the toggles. Or if you're managing licensing was power shell or automated licensing thrashing things like that that is kind of always subject to change in there and then I think for things like this. It could be a little confusing like you know if you didn't know that. Hey people get even sign up for teams trials. You'll never see these licenses until somebody goes and signs up for it and then once they've signed up for it all of a sudden this stuff pops in so like there is no like hundred product licences. There is no teams exploratory toggle switch until that first user in the organization Zeeshan actually launches. It goes through the on boarding experience and comes out the other side. There's just weird things in here. So one of the good ones was. It comes with that exchange online plan one license because part of teams is being able to schedule meetings an in put all that stuff together. Well all it does is light you up for that exchange online plan one trial. It doesn't actually assign the P.. One licensed to the user that signed up for the teams exploratory experience and Adleman still needs to go sign them the license or else they can't what do meetings or any other functionality that relies on relies on that exchange mailbox which is kind of like in some way or another. If you're an Admin of a tendency you'RE GONNA want to figure out whether you allow trials what goes on and if you do you're still gonNA have to monitor the stuff because somebody's going to chat you all right so I have another one for you. Well know this wouldn't be applicable. Well maybe it would. You can only sign up for exploratory if if your current skewed does not include teams right not. If it's just disabled you can only sign up for exploratory. Well so for the eligibility ready for him so you need to have absent. Trials turned on. It's going to be a skew. So yes skew that has teams teams as disabled. I still can't sign up for exploratory exploratory. I think you can so like if you have business premium but its users who don't don't have an office three sixty five licensed that includes teams can initiate that exploratory experience slow Tori in that example. Let's go back to you. Have that mixed Hanan Hanan with. Let's keep it in the business world. We'll do business premium and business so if you have those users with office three sixty five business. Because they're licensed doesn't doesn't include teams. They would be eligible to sign up for that team's exploratory experience. Any of your business premium users if you had disabled labeled teams and their license when you went and picked the APPs they would not be allowed to Senate for exploratory correct. Yeah they wouldn't even be able to go through the experience now did that opens up a whole nother. Maybe end user training or adoption or kind of communication issue out there of. Why can this person sign up for it? But this other person can't or why do I see the other people have it. But I don't well then I started thinking thinking because if you have business and you sign up for teams exploratory and then your company decides to use it so they switched to business premium. How does that affect some some of these exchange online plan ones and some of these other skews that get lit up that you may have started using using that you may not get with business or is actually a downgrade from exploratory to business? I'm trying to think give business is. I can't remember off the top of my head and I'm not going to pull it up now because we should wrap up by the way meeting cancelled so I don't have to go three minutes ago. Lake Lake how that would work. And I can't remember like is think business premium might be all those planned ones so there might not be like some weird downgrade issue there. Yeah I don't know I think it's more when when you get into like those issues which are playing twos and or well yeah eastern bunch of not. It's not the ones but friends don't let friends by e want so there is that yeah anyways that was our team's experiences.

"So if you're running office three sixty five business ten in a matter business enterprise whatever it is and you don't have teams today you can just go and sign up for a free Microsoft teams trial and on the back end. That in the past was giving you things like a Microsoft commercial cloud trial license so that you could go ahead and and get all your stuff in place and it would stand up and give you that teams trial license and then if you needed exchange licenses things like that we would go ahead and laid up and do what needs to do because that's what this team's commercials club trial is it's not just teams. It's teams then all those office three sixty five services whether yes it is it is all all the things that need to come to support teams along the way. So what's happening is the Microsoft teams commercial cloud trial offer. You're that is a mouthful. Full is transitioning over to a new license or a new trial offer which is going to be called the teams exploratory experience. That's a mouthful either. So the teams exploratory exploratory experience. Like if you've never done a trial of teams in your tenant then this will go ahead and light up a whole bunch of stuff. So let's it's just rattled down the list of what's going to get turned on if someone signs up.

ATP that consuming all your memory. That doesn't run anymore on mine. Is it a broken. Oh I got it. So you installed Microsoft's web fluent fonts because you wanted to have semi light on your computer and and it screwed up all your electronics obsolete teams and now none of that. That was funny and to do that too. I have all kinds of issues. If you would like to find an issue with America. Come talk to let me know in reality. ATP for like the last two months just has trouble starting sap. I haven't tried to fix it. I don't know if it's running or not in the background but I don't have any you I into it but the biggest one that has raised way more noise than anything else is an issue with screen sharing hiring and Microsoft teams in to be fair. I don't know entirely where all the blame lies with us. It is Mike Saas. Everybody blames Microsoft. But there's been some twitter status is out there and all of this around Catalina because this issue surfaced with Catalina and Mike self teams and we can link to the thread out there and it's not actually anti-community it's an answer that Microsoft Dot Com. We are up to a grand total total now of seventeen pages of people discussing this issue and trying to get around it. But essentially what happens is in Mac. Os Catalina UH. They have that new screen recording security permission so in order for anything to work that in some way capture something off of your your screen. This could be snagged it could be web are deal webex could zoom. It could be teams. It could be any other screen capture tool screen recording tool blah blah blah blah. It requires you to give that APP permission to record your screen so naturally if you WANNA do screen sharing and teams do go give the permission. It'll prompt for permission and say permission retirement screen. Now the issue comes in after you've given that permission and you go into a teams meeting. Everybody has started complaining. Well everybody seventeen pages of people three hundred eleven people have the same the same question but they go to show their screen in they. It continued to get that prompt. You have to allow screen recording to share your screen. People go through and they're like I've done it I've reset it. I've UNINSTALL install reinstalled I've restarted. I've done all this stuff and he can't get it to go away. There was one person that discovered this. And I've kind of kept going with. It is certain APPS and I have a list of that. I've found about ten of them now. Black screen recording or black teams from determining that setting in some way. So it's Kinda like when you go. Click screen sharing teams. It has to loop through all the open APPs on your computer and see which ones you can share because you know when teams you can share like your whole screen and you can just pick certain APPs to share. It appears that when it hits certain APPS when it's looping through all of them just crashes out of whatever that queries that's running thing and it'll keep popping that up so I've found it with like harvest time tracking Microsoft to do Cisco VPN the photos. APP Catalina so max native photos APP if any of those are open screen sharing. It doesn't work. You get that prompt of go give permission as soon as you close those apps apps screen sharing work so you.

Pros and at users where we discussed the topic or recent news and how it relates to you the hurricane dorian episode of this podcast we spent some time talking about hurricanes news around hurricane doria followed up with asher and office three sixty five news the button doe that was anticlimactic. I was waiting for like a rocket ship taking off or something like that a rocket ship how about out a hurricane storming in on this hurricane edition of the podcast yeah. We seem to have a couple of these. Every year turns out. <hes> hurricanes are a thing yes and they are about as unpredictable as i was gonna. Come up with some cloud joke and i have nothing something's gotta be unpredictable in the cloud is the hurricane doreen seems to be where your settings are going to be in office three sixty five adleman about that there you go. That's very unpredictable. Yes always moving being in changing locations just like doria yeah so how sorts of fun times hurricane blown in so that means for me being out on a <hes> more the ocean side. I'm not as far inland as you are. I get to evacuate yes. I'm pretty safe here. I emptied the the back porch. I was going back and forth. Take the pool stuff into. I leave it out taking into leave it out and it's been so unpredictable i caved in my garage is jam packed with everything that was out the hard as a mess. This is hurricane. Season is one of the few times a year that you can actually actually put a car in our garage so we <hes> you know my wife and i are are northerners right haven't quite picked up my southern drawl and in the northeast or at least the northeastern united states when you have a house you have this amazing thing underneath it called the basement marvelous yeah where you can just store all of your things and then all of a sudden you move south and you come to this place where aware it's all sand in your backyard and everything sinks and russ and rots away and they don't have magical basements so i've come i'm to the conclusion after talking to several neighbors and others down here from the northeast that in florida our basement garage we we don't have anything to the way that says we were not allowed in like we have to put our cars away at night. They can be in the driveway so there's my basement but there is this like one to two times a year. You're where i need my basement so i parked my car in a garage. So that was saturdays. Adventure was getting ready for that and then i'm still at home now but they we started evac for the part of jacksonville that i'm in today so we're in kind of a lower laying area and then <hes> the part of town that we're in is is only accessible by a few bridges so if those bridges closed down because of wind or get damaged in some way and you haven't laughed kind of this the the island jacksonville then you can't get out which could be detrimental to emergency services like we only have like one or two hospitals over here and they're all pretty north so we're going to go ahead and do the responsible thing and just hop out to the other side of the intercoastal or as we love lovingly referred to it on this side. We just call it going to the other side of the ditch. You come to my side of the ditch yup. That's the plan. You know. It's it's monday the afternoon now and they said they started evac for everybody from saint augustine all the way up to jacksonville beach this morning so that all came through.

"Your settings for Microsoft teams what you will see up at the top is a little dialogue that says important removing teams admin setting in the new Mike, soft teams on Skype for business Edmund center if the setting unavailable here already been moved over there, but there are still some settings there. So from an org wide perspective, some of the government sendings you to think about is the first one is maybe, whether or not you even want to allow. Guest access to your environment. If you're going to allow people to ABC Gast's to your team's environment in if you're going to allow users inner teams to invite guests in, so this is one setting that should be looks like it may have gotten moved and mine. I have seen it both places both in the Microsoft teams under services and Adams in terms of being able to allow gestation. They're actually, in my now it is under the org wide settings in the new teams Adleman center if you go to guest access the very first radio button is just allow guest access teams are not allowed guest accessing teams. So that's one of those big settings that it kinda wanted to side right away. Because if people start inviting guests in it may be too late. So this is I believe this one is now by default for grad settings. It is. Yes. And then once you have decided can away. What guest access if you're going to allow guest access, or not, you do have a whole bunch of settings at organizational wide level. So when we're talking organizational level, this isn't specifying, these settings for a given team or even channel this is every single team within your tenant. Are you going to allow these settings are not so with under this guest access in the new Microsoft teams and then Senator you have things like if your guest are going to be able to allow or make private calls? So actually doing voice calls within your Microsoft teams environment. And then you have certain settings around meetings. So if you're going to allow IP video in your meetings for guests or not, if you're going to allow guests to have screen sharing in even what that screen sharing setting is. So you can disable it. Completely. You can say what they're only going to be able to share. Air applications, or they're going to be able to share their entire scream in, then you also have settings around messages in this is things like whether guests can add, it messages that they send or if they can delete them if chat for those guests is able to disabled, so you may only guests to be able to communicate with an channel or to be able to carry on that cameras Asian within two channel a team in that send private messages to other users in your organizations via chat, so you can turn off chat. You can turn off shifts. You can set rating on those Jeff's memes stickers. So all of these different settings that you may want to apply organizational wide around what those guests can or can't do to again. Maybe you don't want them to be able to do video or to be able to do screen sharing for security reasons for sensitivity reasons or to be able to. To make calls or chat so they can essentially chat with anybody in your organization. These are those org wide settings that you really want to think about what functionality should just guests people to do within teams or outside of teams. Correct. And then you have to be able to bring your users up to speed on that as well. So I've been in tenants before were where some of these settings for zincs like guests being able to share their screens is not on. So the very first time that you're on a call. And you say, hey, can you share your screen with me? I can't. Oh, no. There's certainly some end user considerations as well for consumption of these products by your users, not just the guests who come into that ten exactly kind of, once you move on from guests or even before you get to guest. You also have your team settings. So this is another one of those that is organizational wide. This is teams across the board. And this is more when you start getting into your end user settings, and maybe some of those settings that you might your end users to do these when you get into team settings internal users in guests are controlled differently. So a lot of those guests settings you can't set organizational wide for your internal users, and we'll get into that in a little bit how you kinda control some of those same settings for internal users. But team settings organization allied, this is something that you really should go into look it right away. Because there are a. There's a few key aims in here that are enabled by default that you may want to disable so within your team settings you have things like the Email integration if knew allow Email addresses for different channels, but the one that actually surprises me and I don't know that everybody realizes this is that files tab in eighteen by default has the option for your users to go in an ad share file dropbox box or Google Drive as cloud storage to the files tab. Inner Microsoft team. So if you're rolling out teams in near concerned about governance about data laws about where people are storing things, and you're not maybe blacking, these at the firewall level users may still be using teams. But then storing all their files and some other third party rather than using the share point site associated with teams. So one of the settings that you can do or glide is going and disable the ability for them to. Add share file dropbox box Google Drive any number of those. That's a check backs for each one within your team. And that is one of those that is on by default teams when Microsoft I enabled it, it was on so that may be one that you want to go down and go in and shut those off right away. If your corporate policy is would cheer point is our location. For those cloud based file shares that's a little bit of weird run. Like you said it is on on by default, and you have to make that decision. Do you moderate you allow that maybe he goes through a, some of Microsoft's Caspi tools or another proxy or something just to see what happens? But, but it can be difficult to get insight into what's going on, when she opened the floodgates in the stuff, south stuff's out there. Absolutely. So that's kind of the big one from that org wide sending you have a couple other ones around devices and how meeting room devices operate in. In terms of requiring pins authentication to access meeting content resource accounts being able to send messages that are tied with these room devices and conference rooms, but those are kind of those big team settings for internal users within the new teams. Admin center, one of the settings that may be valuable to you. That.
