I Bought It. Why Can't I Fix It?
"Several years ago journalists and kepler was on his very first work trip. He was an intern. Us news and world report. At the time he was excited. We did carry okay the first day and i got a little bit drunk. Nothing crazy but i fell asleep with my laptop in my bed watching comedy or something like on netflix. When jason woke up the laptop had moved down to the end of the bed without him realizing it and what happened next. Has that painful almost slow motion quality that anyone who is broken anything expensive knows all too well kicked it off the edge of the bed and the lcd broke on on me laptops. So the screen wasn't broken but if you opened it was just us all kinds of crazy colors and tickets be apple store and they wanted seven hundred dollars exit money that jason. An intern did not have so. We figured why not try to fix this thing myself he went on ebay and found a replacement. Lcd screen for fifty bucks. A fraction of the price that apple had quoted him and then he found some instructions online. It actually took me like ten hours to do like couldn't get the screen off. And i remember at one point. It was like four in the morning. And i grabbed in exacto knife which is not something you want to take the wires but i was just so frustrated and i just couldn't get the screen off to put the new one end eventually jason fixed screen and he used that computer for six years but the experience opened his eyes to a really important story in the tech world.

And it's so hard to do it yourself because manufacturers from apple to samsung to microsoft. John deere make it that way.

But they didn't mean it but when you have somebody who's got three days threefold as they can do whatever i think about the people who work in jobs where they work Three longer days on and then they have three days off places that are seven day places. How much they love the three and three in this case. We're talking about four on three off. I mean it's something that. I hope that the bosses at various places will see the wisdom of in even for themselves. Having more time with family with friends. It will be a fuller life a better career doing that. And i think people are better workers when they have more downtime. Like that

If the organizers are successful it would be the first union for amazon employees in the us. There is a lot at stake. Cure for the workers for amazon and for the rest of the tech industry. So for more on this we turn to our reporter sebastian herrera. He covers amazon and ecommerce for us. Hey bashing thanks for joining. Thanks for having me. Okay so bring us up to speed on this unionization effort. Who's been leading the charge. And what are they pushing for. Well there's a set of pro union workers inside of this facility in bessemer who have been leading the charge alongside of the union which is the retail wholesale and department store union. And they've they've basically been trying since the start of the election obviously to rally workers for pro union vote. They're trying to change. What a lot of employees bring up at work at these facilities which is breaks. Pay other benefits and what they focus on. Two is the rate at which they have to work because at these facilities employees are expected to fulfill items that go into packages hundreds of items per hour. And it's pretty taxing on these employees. Because i do it for ten hours a day you know they pretty much in the same spot isolated for amount of of the day and they are penalized. If they don't fulfil items at a certain rate you could easily be fired for for not making rate so they point to that as something they feel can change. They point to the fact that even though amazon offers fifteen dollars starting pay that it is really not enough to make a living wage. Some of these employees they go to second or even third job to support their families. So i feel like with as of successful advocacy as a company is amazon has been they could be receiving more and so they're ultimately fighting for these various
All About Crane's Critter Care
"We are back we are doing a new segment where we bring on a small business owner so we can talk a little bit about their business about what they do. What kind of issues or problems. They've come up. Come against in starting in running a business. You know maybe business during kobe and whatever comes up and so right now we have with us gen from cranes critter care john. Thanks for joining us for the first small business segment. Thank you so much for inviting us into i actually chow four chinchilla friends with me this ursula one thing. That's a little bit different about further care. Is we go far beyond just captain dogs. We do all sorts of exotic whether it's earned small mammals sarmiento reptiles anything because we have so many people that have pets chats dogs in. I noticed when i was working at the ap l. That was a big issue. People were having was not being For anything other than just basing cat dog or if they had animal what medical issues. So that's one thing that Critter cares able to do is we can do animals with medical issues whether that be needing shots multiple times a day medications multiple times a day. We can do dogs or cats with behavioral issues. That could normally go to a kennel or normal. Dog sitter whether it be sonic stranger danger or anything bats. We also work with harder cheeses. I personally love the challenges in house. Seven years experience were sheltered in animals because training shelter. Animal is so much different than training in that. You thought from the pet store in today's nickel company though. It's just a little bit different methods of going about things but it's been really great overall. We've had to change a lot of cova right. And that's one thing. This kind of bennett trick is as cova comes up each month. We have to kind of a daft. Do whatever we see that customers are looking for whether if the people going out of town so that increase number of training sessions of we noticed people wanting more medical care people wanting more educational seminars. So whatever people are looking for cranes critter cares filling in that gap and just go with the flow of were covance. Add in what people are meeting with as far as animal care. So where would you say you start. Sounds like such an amazing and valiant effort that you're doing especially for individuals in the community. You're almost like an immeasurable acid because through You're still trying to push still trying to make sure that the animal care is first and foremost so what pushed you into his avenue this world so i actually started adding animal shelter as a veterinarian assistant. I was there for four years and then i switched to another shelter as their main foster four nader doing educational seminars. And that's one of the biggest issues i noticed was i was in the intake department where people would surrender. Animals in have issues in a big thing is lack of education whether it be their animal has issued. They don't know how to properly train or fix it. So then immediately playbay. Just surrender or their four hours a day. Don't have anyone to let them out in the they don't have time to have an animal or someone passed away or moved out there. Sheila left behind. They have no idea how to take care of. It can shallow surrender over and it's one of those things where the more education were able to provide the public a lot. More people keep animals in their homes. Take better care of their animals. It makes a better relationship between the owner of pet in more animals. Just stay healthy happy home. So it's a little bit of keeping animals out of the shelter keeping almond good conditions just for improve quality of life for everyone right. Yeah no so. I wanted to actually ask about something along those same lines. Since we've been going through cova. This is something that we touched on. In in one of my classes actually we were talking about Pharmaceuticals and medications for animals versus for people Was he was business of biology through. You're talking about big pharma quite a bit but you know one of the things that came up is that there's different right if you have a life threatening disease or disorder. You're probably more likely to get that medication than you would. For a life threatening disease or disorder for an animal or at least some people are so along those same lines of what you were talking about. One thing that i was hoping to kind of get out there. One thing i think that needs saying is i'm sure that lots of people bought a new animal because the kobe right. You're locked up. You're stuck at home. You need a buddy someone. Yeah but that said tat. I'm slightly concerned that we're gonna see a big christmas dump ejup fact at the end of covid right where everyone is like. Well now. we're back at work now. We're back at school now. We're busy now. We don't have any time and so well. We have to get rid of the animals. So i guess i wanted to kick it over to jenin. Just see what you thought about that. Do you think that phenomenon is going to happen once we quote unquote get back to normal and like what could you say to pet owners. That currently do have their pet that you know maybe thinking of doing something like that so i completely agree and that's something even when i felt the shelter we talked about with so many people now that they're working from home temporarily were adopting animals but they're not thinking in the future a lot of those times so that's one thing during summer especially i focused on was doing seminars in different on how to prevent separation anxiety. That's gonna be one of the issues as well with on people getting poppies. The puppies are missing to people being home all day leaving for maybe two hours tops and all of a sudden you're drastically or changing their schedule their way of life pretty much by being gone nine ten hours a day. That's going to have a lot of issues with separation. Anxiety being the biggest one and then i see a lot of people once that happens to run around to shelters reasonable surrender.
Some Capitol Hill Lawmakers Back Amazon Workers' Attempt To Unionize
"Nearly six thousand amazon employees who work at a warehouse in bessemer alabama are voting by mail on whether to unionize. If they do this will be the first union amazon facility in this country. Here's jennifer bates. Who works there. I keep butterflies and butterflies. Normally come to calm me but hey this is my stomach faithful. It seems like it's getting bigger and bigger full of butterflies. Because there's no break in. Think i don't know how kogo nerve wracking. The election ends later. This month and i should mention. That amazon is a financial supporter of npr. But we cover them like any other company. Some lawmakers support the union. Including senator marco marco rubio or republican and of course president biden also michigan congressman andy levin earlier this month. He and a group of democrats traveled to bessemer. Good morning congressman. Good morning noel. How are you good thanks. What did amazon employees. They're tell you about why they want to unionize. Well you know a union election so often are about basic dignity and that was really true here. I was shocked to learn what it's really like in there They work in a facility. That's like fourteen football fields and it can take ten minutes to walk to a break room. They've to half hour breaks in a ten hour shift so they might get effectively ten hours to eat lunch be by the time they walk there and back lot of them. Don't feel like they can go to the bathroom. Except on their break. And they're watched and quantified every second they're monitored visually a listening geo positioning and every second they're not on task is measured and if they have a certain number of minutes off task in a week they could be fired sometimes might not even be a person involved it was really kind of dehumanizing to me. Here's the argument. That amazon makes amazon. Says look our employees. Earn fifteen dollars an hour which is a good wage in a place like bessemer alabama. Some of them have health benefits. 401k's essentially they have got the benefits that a union would get them. They don't need a union. What do you make of that argument. I'd like to tell that argument to any national football league player and the actor and a movie any presenter on major television or radio networks all of whom have a union every single one. The idea that unions are only for people who are the most poorly paid. It's ridiculous the one person who is unionized. That every airline is the pilot so this argument is ridiculous. These workers deserve a seat at the table to discuss a safe workplace. During a pandemic they deserve a seat at the table to have a workplace. That's human and a real person can go to and great make fifteen dollars. An hour amazon should pay them a lot more the owner of the company. The main owner had his wealth increase. Seventy eight billion dollars during a pandemic and they're about pay jeff bezos in their bag bragging about paying people fifteen dollars an hour there. What's wrong with workers having their own organization just that they can have input in their in in their work lives. And that's all these people are seeking is a seat at the table during this trip to alabama that you went on your colleague congressman jamaal. Bowman said this doesn't stop with amazon. He mentioned lift. Uber tesla and walmart as well. What is the ultimate goal here. The goal is for workers to be able to form a union and bargain collectively. If they darn well please. Noel were down to six percent of private sector workers in this country needing union. We're gonna pass the proactive in the congress and the president is going help. Lead into new era when workers can have a say at the table. It's long pastime in this country. Michigan congressman andy levin. Thank you
How Psychedelic Drugs Are Making A Comeback To Treat Depression
"Depression. It can be a difficult mental illness to pin down. It can feel different for everyone and even those who struggle with it can have trouble identifying bought. It is a mostly came to understood that. I had depression through talking with my friends for the longest time. I kind of system that everyone felt this way. Like weird just like general malays for this twenty nine year old. Depression surfaced about six years ago and began as a feeling of being disconnected with the world. I didn't want to eat because they didn't feel like i deserve to eat. I don't know. I didn't hang out with friends because i didn't feel like i deserve to see my friends. I didn't feel like i should be punishing them by talking to them seeing them. This person uses they them pronouns. They're a maryland resident and work as a software tester. They sought help for their depression. Trying numerous types of treatments may visited a bunch of different mental health professionals and tried different types of arby's In different types of medication but it always kinda felt like things were getting worse and worse and a current really find someone who has really helped me understand what was going on like. I still didn't even believe that. I had depression. All the while the depression advanced it felt like being alive and lake wanting to die rolling constantly fighting over like the resources in my mind then. Their health insurance lapsed in two thousand eighteen making the situation worse a surprise solution appeared while they were scrolling on social media and a posting from johns hopkins university researchers and then one day i was kind of like clicking through facebook and i actually found this ad four like this little simon. Study silla simon. That's the psychedelic drug found in magic mushrooms. And i thought it was fake remarks. I didn't expect there to be you know like a a legitimate study showing up on like facebook ad but they had no insurance basically they were out of options so they called wanted to have hope again from the wall street journal. This is the future of everything. I'm janet babbling today on the podcast. How the hallucinogenic compounds silla zyban once associated with nine hundred sixty s drug culture is making a comeback and giving people suffering from depression and other mental illnesses. Hope for this twenty nine year old study participant. Depression was not something that happened in their family. My family's from the caribbean and lived in america probably for about lake in years. We came here in ninety nine. It's kind of interesting because where from like a place that doesn't really view mental health. The that like america's mental health. It took me a while to realize that. I was having mental health problems that i was kind of experiencing depression. Depression affects a staggering number of people hundreds of millions worldwide according to a study published in the peer reviewed journal the lancet in two thousand eighteen. The pandemic didn't make things any easier. Last june about a third of people who responded to web based surveys said they suffered from symptoms of depression or anxiety disorder. Those results were published by the centers for disease control and prevention the protocol for treating these conditions hasn't changed much in the past few years. What we've been using is typically one of two things either a medication that people take every day or we have psychotherapy dr. Alan davis is clinical psychologist and an assistant professor at the ohio state university. He's also an adjunct assistant. Professor at johns hopkins university. A lot of people will improve with either medication or therapy or both to basically have both have a better chance but it doesn't work for everyone. Some studies report between ten and thirty. Five percent of patients suffer from treatment resistant. Depression and davis is that similar to what he's found in his own practice working with veterans suffering from substance abuse trauma and other mental health issues. So he began looking for alternative treatments present and welcome to psychedelic science. Two thousand and thirteen in twenty thirteen davis attended a science conference and came across a study exploring the use of silla. Sivan a chemical compound found in specific varieties of mushrooms to treat cancer patients with mental health conditions. The compounds documented facts include feelings of heightened awareness ecstasy visions and changes in the perception of reality for researchers say one of the most useful qualities is its ability to dissolve the ego to allow a user to observe oneself from the outside in the study of cancer patients. The drug was able to alleviate some of the anxiety and depression that can be associated with having a life threatening illness. I was just inspired by that word. I thought gosh this really could have a strong impact in the areas that i'm working with veterans and with others davis became part of a team of researchers at johns hopkins university that put together a randomized clinical trial. Twenty four participants. They were administered. Silla sivan with talk therapy to treat their depression. Enrollment for the trial took place in two thousand seventeen and twenty nineteen and the results were analyzed in two thousand twenty. Most of them had had chronic depression meaning decades of experiencing depression though not some had had it for shorter amount of time but this study was a weightless control trials so some people came in and started treatment right away. Others had to wait eight weeks before starting treatment so we had a comparison group. The study subjects received an extensive intake examined questionnaire to confirm. They were suffering from symptoms of depression. Participants were screened for schizophrenia. And drug use as these conditions can interfere with suicide and treatment. The big worry many people have about psychedelics is what's often referred to as a bad trip. Mary negative hallucinations. That can be scary and this is kind of trip that can go bad. Martissant received hefty doses of these drugs. The doses are based on weight and they vary slightly but patients receive around twenty milligrams in the first session a bit more in the second session to minimize the risk of a negative experience. Davis says researchers focused on controlling. What's called and setting. They work ahead of time to ensure the volunteers current mood and surroundings while taking the drugs. Remain as calm and comfortable as possible and so we spend about eight to ten hours with people before they ever get the drug talking about what the effects are talking about. What may or may not happen when they have this experience and that's why we have to train professionals there with them not only to prepare them for that but to help them through the experience when it happens because a lot of people have anxiety coming into the session. The person we spoke to the twenty nine year old participated in davis study group in august of two thousand eighteen. They had no prior experience with psychedelic drugs and didn't know watch expect basically went in kind of blindly. I don't have any other options. So that's kind of my thought process at the time was just basically kind of sticking anything to the wall and hoping it would work after fasting the previous night the treatment can cause nausea. They were placed in a small tranquil room fitted with a comfy couch. The whole room was a really really cool in very comforting because like they had like these statues like imagery in their end like. I think one of the muslim dowa tibetan model. I wanna say this and like there was like this nice lamp. It's off this really. Soft light psychedelic assisted. Therapy participants are encouraged to bring in objects from home to make them feel more comfortable. Some bring in ten bears pictures of family. The twenty nine year old brought a lightness of an ancient sumerian goddess. Soon nana once they were settled in the room. They were given two pills in a wooden cop the therapists top that the sivan would take fifteen to thirty minutes to start working. In the interim they were told to put on ice shades and headphones. That would play a selection of music they choose from classical tibetan chanting african drumming and modern music too. Once the drug fact the participants says the first session became a kaleidoscope of mental images and sensations. I remember being in lake. Felt like mount olympus the fall of the gods like oval the clouds and suffering them. And then one of my god's up to me and she gave me a key fell through the clouds. And i felt all the way down through the earth and i ended up in hell which is really strange because they don't remember being scared even though i was in hell and i remember asking like hey you know why am i hair And it was like haiti's leading me through hell kind of just like showing me around for life this very cold and desolate last. He was like of course. This is where you would come like. This is where you've made your home. The self revelations continued throughout this long session and turned intensely personal. I remember like hearing like the beats. Come on and i felt myself in like this place like all of my ancestors were and i was really close to my grandfather when i was a kid. And he died. Probably around when i was like four and i saw him kind of materialize And he walked towards the youth like these. She'll bananas which is what he's doing her then he handed one to me and i always kind of was afraid that if he was alive he would be disappointed in me and i remember asking him you know. When am i supposed to do like if my family like my parents and lake my siblings can accept me and he said that he'll always be there for me and my ancestors will always be there for me and i like that scene just like it. Metsu in mental to me after about seven hours than drugs started to wear off when it was over. You know you're still kind of like feeling it but just not as intensely so just basically like this really happy kind of floaty failing and we couldn't drive so like i had to have a sister pick me up. They ended the experience hungry and exhausted as for the depression not much appeared to have changed then. They tried the silla sivan trip once more this time with the stronger dose and after that these say they experienced to palpable shift. It felt like i was back into the world again like i was in reality. A lot of people said that not only was there. Depression differently felt like they had come out of dark hole that they've been in for years but a lot of people regardless of whether they're depression was gone or or reduced said that there was something really meaningful different about how they view their life initial results for the study reviewing outcomes from up to a month after the sessions were completed found that silla sivan plus therapy was more than four times more effective than other treatments. Such as medication alone at one week. Fifty eight percent of the sample were in complete remission from depression that actually lasted up to four weeks. After fifty four percent of people were in complete remission and were now studying those same people up to twelve months after to see how long that remission lasted the rest of the participants in the study. Were not in remission they were still experiencing clinically significant depressive symptoms researchers have yet to publish the results of longer term outcomes for all the participants their condition up to a year after treatment and this was a small study. Just twenty four people. Some scientists remain skeptical of this kind of treatment not just of silla simon. But of the validity of the data an outcomes for all studies involving psychoactive substances

I would authorize the purchase of a mac pro four four john for a._t._p. And say here you go you agree yeah. I feel like if if john is not doing that i think are marco. Marco will get one just because he wants to have that experience. Who knows maybe he'll sell it to john or he'll. He'll return it was i was gonna cassation. Do you remember which i completely agreed with. This is unlike this was months ago like weeks ago where that was something. That jump said was a possibility. A monka was like there's no way i'm excellent to you and i right. That's true because wrong with it. You even no matter what joan would say. You know that cutaways blamed out.

I think marco will buy a mac pro at some point in the first two weeks yeah. I don't know if it'll be day one but i i believe it will happen. I reckon he will have one on the date they ship though right right because it won't ship immediately eric and they'll take preez for a bit but i reckon he'll he'll have made his decision before. The shipping window expires the display now i. I don't know if he would bite a display. I actually think there is more a stronger chance been buying the displayed in the mac pro even because my diet for a laptop i don't agree i think i think he's very excited about the potential six inch laptop and if he does that he doesn't want us one of the ones right so look at the protest lay xia. I think john will buy a mac pro in the first three months and he'll buy that l._g. Display do you think you'll get one and he'll put tape on it. I do i do i do because here's why unless apple comes out with an apple branded thing which i don't think they are now that l._g. Got updated. I i think he will because he's gonna want the mac pro and because he's not john is a very practical person and i can't see john buying an inappropriate an inexpensive monitor he could take it though like just from a design perspective i don't i think i think he's gonna do stuff to try and mitigate it and and then he'll complain about it but it's like is five thousand dollars worth the opposite of being completely frustrated every single day wait for the next ten years if you're just joining us this is the accidental tech podcast fan podcast.

Jonah has written and said mike. I noticed the number of tweets from u._k. Swift uses sang apple. Cod is no big deal and in has features that have been around for a while in the u._k.

So one to the last point yes definitely <hes> <hes> because the united states a love america for many reasons banking is not a thing that is very advanced in america who <hes> everything the thing about the financial process there is kind of held back right like contactless cards right like we all spoke about apple pay being accepted everywhere and it still is like accepted. Basically everywhere in europe still not everywhere in america even if the contact was thing exists. Maybe it doesn't work. Maybe this chip. Maybe it's not maybe apple pay works. Maybe did you see there was a story in the new york times about how they're updating they're going to get rid of the metro card yet a card with a magnetic stripe on and they're gonna go for for their public transit and they're going to a contactless contactless system and apple pay works with it and it's this whole thing that they've they've taken way too long to do to go to a full contactless system great sounds great but there aren't contactless credit cards in america. They made a run at it about five years ago and then like it seems to have fallen off and so one of the funny things that's happening is as a part of this transition banks are sending chip cards with contactless tactless aspect contactless chip in it as well to people with zip codes in the area of the m._t._a. In new york because they're going to need it to tap to enter if they don't have a like apple pay kind of thing and so. I just laughed when i saw that because just like literally oh jeez. I guess somebody wants contactless credit cards but they're not gonna like send everybody a contactless credit card. I think some some credit cards will let you request quest won. Some won't but apparently all the credit card manufacturers are like okay. We got to send it to the people who live around new york city because they're going to need to take the subway but <hes> <hes> it's just <hes> it's ridiculous but <hes> so i think people are low people were talking about like the money management stuff right the grouping of transactions and all that kind kind of stuff. This exists in many places in the u._k. But i have not seen any credit card company that does this so a lot of debit card and like bank accounts like these new the internet focused banks do this stuff but i've not seen any credit card that does it at least from any major provider <hes> but showing stuff about like how easy is to repay and focusing on showing you what your interest is. A lot of that stuff is pretty new especially in the credit card space even here but more than anything the the integration and the way that everything works in the way cashback works stuff that is that is pretty unique to apple cod like it isn't innovative product especially in the credit card space <hes> even if some of these features are available in some of types of banking products..

It's not showing me either current right thing here and that's all starting to go away which is great too much more reliable. 'cause files functionality was already pretty good but its reliability. Ali was poor and it feels like it's not only more functional but more reliable now so i want to talk to you about on that tops soon the thing that keeps coming up but there's a specific reason you posted a tweet. The other day talking about the tweet says this is why the arm mac book is inevitable inevitable and what you were talking about is the galaxy book s which should really be a product that not many people care about because it's just like ah samsung made ultralight windows laptop right like it's. I don't think you can correct me if i'm wrong but i just don't feel like a lot of people that use p._c.'s have the kind of loyalty to the laptop maker in the way the apple customers. Do you know i can imagine people moving from device maker to device make them more frequently so the idea of somebody being like excited about the galaxy book s just seems like a strange one for me except until you you hear a little bit about what the device has going on so this was their unpacked event where they showed of the new ten which i think looks really cool but maybe conversation for another day so this device is using qualcomm made on chip. It has integrated lt because coco's making it. It is a fabulous product lucked but the thing that's super interesting which is bonkers to consider. It gets twenty three hours about relief yeah. That isn't good title. That is absolutely unbelievable like you have taken that to a product where you would feel like you'll battery never ran out right twenty. Three hours of continuous tenuous use is not a thing you can do in a day so as long as you really you could try but like you you know you've got other things going on life at that point the the if these numbers are accurate i don't samsung or in the business of being accurate as they can write that they stay said they tested a on continues video playback twenty three hours. I mean that is that's unbelievable right a laptop that level of battery life yeah. It's that's the that's it's the dream. This is my my reaction is definitely like here's how arm laptops look. Here's what apple could do would apple do it or were. They use all that power. Savings to reduce is the battery even more. It's apple who knows but this is a tiny laptop right leg ultra thin like thin than a macbook pro pro laptop right like it is it's tiny so yeah they could make it smaller but they could make it smaller offer twenty alabama or whatever right and people would still list is the mines thirteen inch as well.

I think it's maybe a healthy thing where the final will ship and a feature that they announced as being an i._o._s. Thirteen thirteen won't be there and they'll say that's coming later and <hes> because they couldn't get it to work right and that that may be the case with some of these features that are being pulled no doubt but i think it's i think it's a good sign.

J.j abrams was for his overall deal <hes> but it's the fact is that netflix amazon and disney were for all bidding for these guys because of game of thrones and net flicks decided they were gonna. They were gonna put money so yeah so they got them. There is a strange because we were talking about j._j. Rightly decided like if i if somebody's done something once they can definitely do it again and that's not always the case i would also say j.j.

"I'm sure a listener has already written in no no. It's it's it's <hes> it was. It was mike when they announced apple t._v. Plus the services event they didn't mention bundles and they did mention a price and then disney announced just what their pricing was so. I think this is one of the things as disappointing as as it was for all of us to not have apple talk about its pricing strategy. It was so oh smart for them not to do that because they have had the whole summer to think about what their pricing is and what they're <hes> forgive the phrase go to market strategy. She is with apple t._v. Plus they'd had a lot of time to think about. It and i don't know what they're going to do. Because part of me thinks it's apple. They're going to price it way more than you want because that's the rule of apple pricing using is that it gets priced way more than <hes> than you want part of me thinks they want to be aggressive because they want people to sign up for this thing and they want to increase their services revenue but they also want to get a lot of people to try it. So you know my my best. Guess is that it will be bundled with apple music and it. They'll be pretty pretty aggressive about it. It wouldn't surprise me if they bundle it with another channel if that makes sense if they say like get apple t._v. and one channel of your choice for for this price and it could be h._b._o. Or showtime or starz or ethics or whatever they wanna do they could do something like that and obviously be kicking most of that money back to the partner they they would be able to offer kind of like more content for for the price because apple's only really got as far as we know. We got these originals. They don't have a catalog of any kind which is a tough sell <hes> but if i had to guess it would be that they will be aggressive in bundling it with apple music that it'll be the cost of apple music subscription plus a few dollars yes and the the argument they'll make is this is your best deal forgetting music and video together but i don't know it makes it hard the rajiv the the short answer is yeah. They are going to have to do some more really sell it now like yep every data log right. It's like literally we've got some. We've got some originals we got back catalogue movie catalog as far as we know we've never seen any reports of that and that makes it a a syria or a service with limited appeal and they're going up against disney which has got their whole catalog and a bunch of originals with these you know huge franchises is behind them so i think honestly if this is at the iphone event and i'm not sure it will be but it may be. That's the best place for where it all eyes are on the iphone. So if you wanna lift your service you would put it in the iphone event at the beginning because everybody watches that event. That's the most popular most watched event apple does the whole whole year they're going to have to. It's going to be one of the more interesting things at the iphone. Iphone event is a price announcement apple t._v. Plus and i know that seems really weird but ah i think it's one of the great mysteries that we have. We have a decent idea of what the iphone is going to be but what apple is doing with apple t._v. Plus we have if no clue and that's kind of exciting. I'm still gonna stick. Oh my prediction. I don't even think they're going to do it but i think they should do it. If you give apple money for like apple music apple news plus applegate you g- apple t._v. plus. That's where i'm going to go like it comes as a sweetener for another service if you're an apple subscriber. Are you get access to their shows. All right could be talking of <hes>. There is a teased today of the morning. Show which is jennifer aniston reese witherspoon. It was boon and steve carell drama show day out today a katiza really along with a twitter account which is the the morning.

You get a bad rap okay. Let's talk about this. I was gonna say bringing someone who cares about the mac. That's not true you care about the mac you care about the there's this like mentality. Have these moments to where people will say like oh you know these people who are like ipad people like federico unlike fair and mike and i'm like <hes> and jason like <hes> like i very clear that team both but i think it's like well but you use a like you. I have like big mac that i work at at my desk all day and i got an ipad that i use mobile. I'm using both of them but it is very easy to say oh. You're one of those people you're one of those people.

I like that so anyway but but steven loves loves the back going back in at at a level that i perhaps due and you perhaps don't and <hes> and so having you in memphis gets a little barbecue flavor right there and then throw ruin stephen hackett and you're rolling up some barbecued madison i dunno trash cans and then the oeste it is very possible. The i'll we're recording smells ch- with the lasers right here in the snell zone it is that's what we're hoping to do is in in person <hes> in in my the office episode of upgrade what would be more fun than that think as horrifying as this sounds the week after which would be the first week of september that timber. We're expecting to be drafting by then yeah that would be the the big fade out of the summer of fun right. It'd be the last hurrah. The summer of fun would be drafting for the iphone event assuming the iphone event is the the week following yup which i think it will be. I would imagine september tenth will be the iphone on event right if we're not draft in on the twenty six which seems unlikely we'll be dropped in the ninth i ca. I can't imagine them releasing the iphone in october and that will be the situation so we will very likely be draft. We have like two mall summer fun episodes and then it's iphone draft so back to actually state <hes> <hes> but we gave to you anyway. We have a hashtag snow.

Suppressing these emotions of insecurity, instability, all types of different things or just inappropriate. That's what keeps most of us dead at some area of our life. And so I say, right. I'm in a trusted space with a trusted person. And even I wasn't and he didn't receive at the right way. Then I'm probably just not supposed to be close with them. So we had looks at me smiles.
