The Talk Show

48: Eddy Cue Is Going to Jail

 

  johnnie no I'm fine I'm excellent so we're gonna news is we've got it you [TS]

  know I here's what I'm thinking I'm thinking is a couple people who noticed [TS]

  the last couple weeks on the show has been the whole show talking about iOS [TS]

  urban design some people are fed up with it so I've got a new topic I want to run [TS]

  it by ear [TS]

  this is why I asked you on show this week Derek Jeter's returned to the [TS]

  Yankees are so i'm waiting for a free rides return yeah I don't think there [TS]

  isn't I wanna know I wanna know when that's happening on that is working the [TS]

  concession stands right now I think they got him into rehab he's doing he's doing [TS]

  a rehab stint working the concession stands a beard guy guy a ride he said it [TS]

  should actually do that endeared him to fans do you have a did is there like a [TS]

  classic do you go to games that much you could have been a few yeah I mean you [TS]

  know it's you know get over them at least once a year I try to i get to [TS]

  Yankee Stadium you know hopefully I'd like to go twice a year at least so far [TS]

  this year is there is there a signature guy like a peanut guy we had a penis guy [TS]

  who actually worked at the Kingdome think before you went to say since [TS]

  retired but he was like he would do i mean he would throw the peanuts at you [TS]

  from Lake 50 feet away there might be but I don't have enough to know that you [TS]

  know they used to be a kind was it was a fan knows a guy who used to like a [TS]

  season ticket holder like an old guy like a drum [TS]

  passed away early moment sales for the guys name we don't know yet but the guy [TS]

  and he eventually he disappeared and just didn't show up for work [TS]

  people were very concerned about it in the paper the articles in the paper and [TS]

  things on the news about finally decided not to go to work for a while but he [TS]

  would be would throw the peanuts from afar now one time he whipped me and it [TS]

  went behind my head kinda through gonna throw you know music I guess I know what [TS]

  I did what I did to deserve that but and I you know I managed to reach behind my [TS]

  head and grabbed the bag but it but it flew open and the peanuts went [TS]

  everywhere and there were some people in front of me to come over from building [TS]

  or something but weren't very happy about that didn't did not understand the [TS]

  that this was that this was a fan favorite thing to do in the penis and as [TS]

  he turned his back and stuff like that yes yeah yeah i've seen [TS]

  yeah I do realize that his fam so you've actually gotten peanuts from the guy I [TS]

  have yeah I was bill on time and I don't think he's I don't think he's there [TS]

  anymore but I'm not positive yeah that's the joy going to the baseball game I did [TS]

  go to a game this week though I went to join us and I and jonathan Jones his [TS]

  best friend and his dad we went to see the Phillies had a good time so weird [TS]

  game was a very weird game the Phillies lost to the Nationals for 21 and every [TS]

  single run in the game was a solo home run kind of a weird game and Cliff Lee [TS]

  who was pitching for the Phillies and I we've already lost the entire audience [TS]

  by the way [TS]

  Cliff Lee pitched for the Phillies they lost 41 he gave up four solo home runs [TS]

  but he actually pits a phenomenal game he he had to give the exact numbers on [TS]

  but something like he finished the game with seventy strikes and 12 balls he was [TS]

  like the highest strike the ball ratio since the year 2000 like in every single [TS]

  major league game in the last 13 years he just had like the highest strike the [TS]

  ball ratio I I honestly think he might have thrown for bad pitches and every [TS]

  single one of them was hit four home and that was the day was bizarre game he was [TS]

  like on fire and yet the Phillies was kind of weird how the Phillies doing [TS]

  this year not so good there like nine games under 500 I don't know what they [TS]

  did last night so maybe there would really weak division did nationally East [TS]

  I think terrible there's no excuse for not winning a division of the Mariners [TS]

  so it's so painful I am I really don't watch the games that much anymore she [TS]

  can't bear to but I'm at a party game happens beyond what I used to do in [TS]

  Philly when I was in college in the nineties when the Phillies after [TS]

  Phillies had a great team in 93 and 94 is this strike and like 95 96 we would [TS]

  just check the schedule and look for when Kurt showing his pit now we really [TS]

  did look look for home games were Curt Schilling was gonna pitch and just go [TS]

  you know then we'd circle and then we go see him on Curt Schilling days cause I'm [TS]

  Curt Schilling days the Phillies are one of the best teams in baseball and when [TS]

  other guys you know that's where the Mariners alike with ya feelin so yeah [TS]

  yeah so is Rickey Henderson is he played he played in the money went down the [TS]

  guidance loves the game so much [TS]

  cards apparently but downplayed the minors for a while after he finished [TS]

  with the A's sorry I was always a big Rickey Henderson ice cream he's so much [TS]

  fun he's he's one of those guys who the rare guy who talks about himself in the [TS]

  third person right never use first-person pronoun it's always tricky [TS]

  and yet somehow you love him for it and you don't think wow what a douche you [TS]

  think you know what the Yankees to the Yankees have great tradition while the [TS]

  other teams don't i guess its cuz they don't have been don't care about [TS]

  tradition Yankees have all old-timers day every year they did that a couple [TS]

  weeks ago so they invite you know a whole bunch of you know all-time yankees [TS]

  to come and they play a game before the game [TS]

  eleven o'clock you know you know in some of the guys are only out for a couple [TS]

  years and you watch him and you think he looks like he could still play he had [TS]

  like a ball out to the wall it went out and Ricky was there this year Ricky [TS]

  plane and did of course to the snatch catch in the crowd went right and that's [TS]

  the sort of thing where you just [TS]

  if it weren't Rickey Henderson you signed outfielder do its gnatcatcher [TS]

  what an asshole but I think well of course he's gonna do that you can't just [TS]

  make a regular catch real news this week I guess the biggest news is got to be [TS]

  the the [TS]

  e-book price-fixing case right now would be it so i guess i guess im not [TS]

  surprised that I lost it didn't seem good you know and I know it sounds funny [TS]

  it seems like it too would think this type of case is it is not like what you [TS]

  think of when you think of a court case because there's no jury it was like [TS]

  before a judge and it's supposed to be this way they gave seen a lot of people [TS]

  say that this was a controversial cuz this judged coat is it colder coats [TS]

  coats so I know its current coach she said before the trial started that she [TS]

  found the DOJ is case against Apple compelling you know and rain in LA [TS]

  people like wall how can she be the judge of she's already before the trial [TS]

  said that but apparently in this type of case so much of the evidence is [TS]

  presented beforehand that that's it's actually perfectly acceptable there's no [TS]

  that's that's no reason for Apple to to complain they might have other you no [TS]

  reason to complain but not that yeah we just think that they go into these [TS]

  things and that their case and then the judge said well alright but that's not [TS]

  how it works well that's how a jury case though works in case the jerry is [TS]

  supposed not to the judge right the jury is supposed to start with a complete [TS]

  blank slate as to the facts and only become you know only the facts presented [TS]

  in quarters posed to be tendered but apparently when it's dry before judge [TS]

  doesn't work that way so I guess I'm not surprised because you know it's almost [TS]

  like it was like a courtesy of you guys are screwed by them but they going to [TS]

  appeal Apple seems adamant about it [TS]

  yeah and I you know I feel like you know everything Apple makes people crazy I [TS]

  mean you and I have talked about this many times how Apple makes Apple [TS]

  incorporated makes people crazy and now that this is out there some certain [TS]

  people who like Apple somethin somethin guilty price-fixing and it's there you [TS]

  go there the evil empire there [TS]

  the worst company in the world and i really think no matter what your [TS]

  thoughts are on Apple I really do think that it's the cases a lot more subtle [TS]

  than that and it certainly is not the case that Apple in any way like [TS]

  fix things so as they dominate the e-book industry because they don't [TS]

  dominate the book industry they're not even the leading [TS]

  I guess their second Amazon but it's a distant second ninety percent something [TS]

  like that yeah it's crazy I mean there might even with iBooks being like I [TS]

  think a relative success I think you could still say that can go in the [TS]

  Kindle Store is a monopoly on e-books so it's very strange that the company that [TS]

  enables you know sort of made this case all along like isn't it strange that the [TS]

  company that doesn't have a monopoly is the company that the DOJ days is [TS]

  pursuing for unduly influence in the market [TS]

  Senegal sénégal take on that would maybe be related to an Apple was brought [TS]

  before congress few months ago was like may end and at the time it was sort of [TS]

  it was noted that they don't really spend that much on lobbying compared to [TS]

  a lot of other companies in particular Amazon is one of them an amazon has had [TS]

  spent a lot of lobbying because of the whole sales tax that's been a real big [TS]

  concern from them and they spend time trying to work that issue to try and [TS]

  make that think about you know so that it would work well for them and but you [TS]

  know if you were so if one were cynical one would say that going could say that [TS]

  if Apple is but more time [TS]

  greasing the wheels of politics maybe they wouldn't be in the position of [TS]

  their end [TS]

  you know that there's somebody tweeted that to me today and I tweeted back to [TS]

  them that I didn't think so that was congress in this is Department of [TS]

  Justice's executive branch the judges I you know judicial branch and you know I [TS]

  am NOT saying the judges are completely apolitical but once you're appointed a [TS]

  federal judge you don't have to keep getting reelected so there's no there's [TS]

  not as much money shouldn't be employed I don't think there's any kind of the [TS]

  judge but the case was pursued at all right [TS]

  the justice department is bombers justice and I don't even think it's a [TS]

  secret I think that the fact that that it was Amazon that brought you know you [TS]

  can't it's like Amazon can file a suit against Apple like this but it was [TS]

  Amazon that went to the DOJ and said hey guys should go after these guys there [TS]

  they fixed they fix this [TS]

  Sherman Act yeah I know but I don't think it's even a secret that the Amazon [TS]

  you know petitioned the Department of Justice to pursue a bonus regard our [TS]

  good friend out of banks at tidbits had I think I'd like to it yesterday I think [TS]

  he had an excellent overview like you read the judge's ruling I did read the [TS]

  whole room I read a lot of it though and it was it was actually I thought it was [TS]

  fantastic clear in terms of just not being like legalese or anything like [TS]

  that like something legal dumb dumb like me just reading sort of follow her logic [TS]

  and you know which bits of the evidence she found it interesting and compelling [TS]

  and Adam you know road I think a good summary of that yeah yeah I was rushing [TS]

  to finish it before we go so what's your take [TS]

  well it's always been kind of a weird thing he does seem you know first blush [TS]

  it seems like what why are they going after Apple instead of going after [TS]

  Amazon but at the same time the things that they went after them for it wasn't [TS]

  so much the agency model as it was the things that they did on top of the [TS]

  agency model in order to try and make sure so they did they wanted to switch [TS]

  to the agency model but they also want to make sure they could still sell books [TS]

  at the same price that Ms Huntsville books for so they would get most favored [TS]

  nation status in order to be able to price things lower to match Amazon's [TS]

  braces and then there was the other thing it was but there was a two things [TS]

  that were not so much related to the agency model is just more specifically [TS]

  setting the prices was the other one was at the tears yes the tears that the [TS]

  setting specific pricing tiers right that you know that Apple I think you [TS]

  know this all sort of makes intuitive sense to but the ebook guys wanted much [TS]

  higher prices like has paid you know our or hardcover books the publishers the [TS]

  publishes the publishers you know had been selling bestsellers like you know [TS]

  Stephen King comes out with a new book or fifty shades of grey comes out with a [TS]

  new book and that that's going to be like you know he's going to be a [TS]

  bestseller and they're like twenty-five thirty bucks hardcover but they sell [TS]

  them to the booksellers at like 15 16 bucks with those $30 suggested price in [TS]

  the add up to the booksellers to price it somewhere between that suggested [TS]

  price and whatever the hotel costes but you know best sellers are generally in [TS]

  hardcover in the twenties and they've always managed the book market sort of [TS]

  like and this is obviously even predates home video but it's sort of like with [TS]

  movies were first movies going the theater [TS]

  and are only in the theater and it's like 10 bucks a ticket to go see it in [TS]

  to make a lot of money that way and then they weighed in in like you know four [TS]

  months later whatever the the home video thing comes out and then you can buy the [TS]

  DVD and blu-ray or buy it on iTunes or whatever and then three months later six [TS]

  months after that then maybe they'll put it on HBO HBO to train in two years [TS]

  later than some stupid commercial channel these tears rolling down the [TS]

  book market has always been first the hardcover and then some number of months [TS]

  later than they come out with a nice paperback version of it and it's cheaper [TS]

  even though it's the exact same book just you know and probably way more [TS]

  cheaper than the difference in the actual materials between hardcover and [TS]

  paperback books that that the whole concept of ebooks sort of distress that [TS]

  there's there's no you can't make like a good version and a better version like [TS]

  paperback hardcover there's just the book ratner may be nice nice bounce [TS]

  terrible you can get a comic sans version shouldn't even mention that some [TS]

  seventies somebody out there and you know like all of like you know like the [TS]

  music industry before it they want to put the genie back in the head and go [TS]

  back to the days when they could sell the new Stephen King book for $29.99 [TS]

  instead of 999 and I think a poor based on you know I'm looking at the testimony [TS]

  Apple went to these guys and said look you know you guys gotta get realistic [TS]

  the ebook you know fifteen bucks is kinda high for any you know that that [TS]

  should be like your target for like hype like a bestseller 15 bucks I trust us we [TS]

  know what people are willing to spend online transaction you know a lot of [TS]

  music we saw a lot abs [TS]

  15 bucks is really what you should be you know looking at 12 and 11 for older [TS]

  books or something like that and yeah but it looks like that that sort of [TS]

  hearing strategy I guess they got you know it's not just like a suggestion it [TS]

  was sort of like a rule from Apple yeah definitely counted against yeah I mean [TS]

  when you take that and you take it to all the major publishers and say hey [TS]

  let's let's do this [TS]

  ok that sounds like you know what you traditionally think of as well and then [TS]

  there's also the collusion because they had the phone records and showed that [TS]

  you know prior to 80 QS like whirlwind tour of the new york publishers you know [TS]

  that these publishers had made very few calls between each other and then as [TS]

  soon as you hit town there's a whole bunch of calls from simon schuster doe [TS]

  Random House Random House to whoever else suggesting that they were you know [TS]

  all sort of the other thing is I I don't know how this could have happened [TS]

  without saying without Apple saying you guys should if your gonna switch to the [TS]

  agency model which is really effectively it's not that complicated it's the App [TS]

  Store model where you set as the seller you the publisher so you don't set a [TS]

  wholesale price you set the resale the retail price and we take 30% and you [TS]

  keep 70% and that's it [TS]

  you set a price customer pays it and will give youth seventy percent of that [TS]

  that's another way of thinking about it is that Apple went to these publishers [TS]

  and said we we want to sell e-books exactly like we sell apps you set a [TS]

  price will give you 70 percent and will will handle all the distribution I don't [TS]

  see how they could have done it without getting them all on board right [TS]

  and I guess that's the other thing I'm can still confused about is what what [TS]

  could I have done differently to not be guilty of price fixing in this case [TS]

  wouldn't have been enough for them not to get the MFN clause the whatever if [TS]

  you're selling it at a lower price somewhere else we get to match the price [TS]

  is if they wouldn't have had that clause with that have been enough that might [TS]

  have been enough I mean I would think that Amazon would have had less of an [TS]

  objection and would have been less likely to take you know go to the [TS]

  justice department and say go after these guys I don't because that's what [TS]

  really because I think that's what Amazon really wanted to be able to do [TS]

  though is they want to do they want to have these loss leaders of the could [TS]

  sell just to get people to come to this site right because with the agency model [TS]

  you can't sell at a loss because it's you don't you know there's no there is [TS]

  no wholesale retail difference it the seller and the creator Pixar retail [TS]

  price and you just give him seventy percent of it there is no way to [TS]

  undercut the price and apple an apple never would have been able to sell those [TS]

  books for that price because the publishers wouldn't have set them lol [TS]

  raining on Arizona chugged along happily as it as it had been and I'm not sure [TS]

  about this is my guest and because they would steal still some books at $9.99 I [TS]

  guess maybe the other way would be that would have made Amazon happy and I can't [TS]

  help but think would have made this a non-issue from the Department of [TS]

  Justice's angle is ok you call it the agency model and let's say you know John [TS]

  Holt comes out with a new novel published by random house and Random [TS]

  House wanted to sell for $14.99 Amazon can still sell it for $9.99 and just [TS]

  give you seventy percent of $14.99 [TS]

  you know like it's the fact that the contract for these publishers in the new [TS]

  agency model you know forbids the retailer from changing the price you [TS]

  know that [TS]

  the price you said it has to be I guess the fundamental issue in the whole thing [TS]

  is the fact that Amazon is right is such a believably different company than [TS]

  anybody would have ever expected to exist they don't pursue profits and [TS]

  their shareholders don't don't hold their own hair dont care there you know [TS]

  and and I'm not even saying that doesn't make sense that there isn't a certain [TS]

  sense to it because look at what they've done to the physical book industry right [TS]

  they've they've not quite destroyed it but almost destroyed in borders is out [TS]

  of business [TS]

  Barnes and Noble is in trouble and it's the fact that this whole the whole [TS]

  traditional wholesale retail pricing from the publisher publishers [TS]

  perspective was built on alright we'll set a wholesale price of fifteen bucks [TS]

  for the book will put a thing on the cover that says retail $30 and we just [TS]

  assume that everybody we ship it to you know from booksellers to wal-mart's to [TS]

  whoever is gonna sell it at a retail price in between 15 and 30 dollars you [TS]

  know probably closer to 30 if they want to sell it closer to 15 go nuts but they [TS]

  know it's going to be about 15 because if it was under 15 it's unsustainable [TS]

  because it's a loss right and nobody can go forever selling books so nobody [TS]

  everything except Amazon figured out a way to do that by selling enough other [TS]

  stuff for profits to break even and so you know forever they've they've sold [TS]

  books at a loss just so that they can dominate the industry and I don't think [TS]

  anybody ever anticipated that a company would existed for how long as Amazon [TS]

  been telling box probably about close to twenty years you know for fifteen 15 [TS]

  days sixteen seventeen years [TS]

  would continuously so however ebook at a loss to Louisville and I they just never [TS]

  anticipated that and then I think taking that same business model te books where [TS]

  Amazon didn't have to destroy the existing infrastructure of physical [TS]

  booksellers borders Barnes and Nobles you know the the smaller ones that are [TS]

  inside your malls targets in wal-marts and everywhere else for you could [TS]

  traditionally buy books they didn't have to destroy that because the e-book [TS]

  market was brand new and Amazon came right out of the gate and and sort of [TS]

  established themselves as the leader ever being a pilot of the time thinking [TS]

  of great books will be able to pay a lot less for books cuz it's just you know [TS]

  it's just ones and zeros [TS]

  paying basically no I don't know about that then maybe I maybe an inflation but [TS]

  I mean paperbacks 478 bugs I just as I thought we'd get ebooks for like two [TS]

  dollars because there is no printing costs they just sent you the MBTA you [TS]

  would like to see author's stars [TS]

  well I also assume that the authors weren't really getting all the money [TS]

  anyway and I didn't care of Random House start keep sending the same amount of [TS]

  the Opera just squeeze out random house I do think and I think that's something [TS]

  about this ebook case for it it's it's more complicated than then I think a [TS]

  typical case because there's a bunch of interested parties clearly there's [TS]

  Amazon and Apple and Amazon and Apple are both fine [TS]

  what they're both very very successful companies enabling particular doesn't [TS]

  need ebooks they could just get out of the e-book business and it would be a [TS]

  rounding error in their finances you know people would probably still read [TS]

  just as many books on their iPads which dentist do it all on Kindle app probably [TS]

  wouldn't decrease the actual reading of the box on iPad there's the publishers [TS]

  there's authors and then of course there's consumers the readers and so [TS]

  what I see on Twitter and in my email from people who send me feedback on my [TS]

  coverage of the case which hasn't been extensive i mean but you know there's [TS]

  there's there's definitely a strong contingent of the consumer side probably [TS]

  people listening to the show right now but definitely people who read my stuff [TS]

  whose take on it is is as simple as lower prices are better for consumers [TS]

  period and so you know amazon selling all ebooks are trying to sell all of [TS]

  them at the most $9.99 was great for readers and Apple's entry into the [TS]

  market breaking that and raising a lot of e-book prices to $15 you know and and [TS]

  an average that's now somewhere between ten and fifteen dollars is you know in [TS]

  and of itself bad you know the market is now in worse shape than it was before [TS]

  and so it's good that the department of justice when after Apple because this is [TS]

  a bad thing you know there's a certain logic to that argument but i'd i'd [TS]

  really think that the show [TS]

  short I I think it shortsighted because I don't think it's I don't think that [TS]

  the Amazon dominating the e-book market was gonna be good for consumers in the [TS]

  long term right I don't and you see it there was a near Times article last [TS]

  month about how amazon has started now finally raising prices on physical books [TS]

  after years and years of always being the lowest you know price now the day [TS]

  dominated so strongly and they've driven so many other competitors out of [TS]

  business now they're starting to raise prices and I think that's almost [TS]

  certainly what they would have done or might even still do with the e-book [TS]

  market sunday is grow dominated so strongly that they can eventually you [TS]

  know that everybody is dependent upon them and then they can say okay now [TS]

  we're gonna keep selling books like I think that their long-term plan was in [TS]

  the short term keep I need wholesale ebooks at 15:14 15 bucks element $9.99 [TS]

  at a loss but then eventually go to the publishers and say you know we're sick [TS]

  of selling these things that allows we're going to keep sending them to [TS]

  people at 999 but we're only gonna give you $7 and now we're going to keep $2 of [TS]

  it and take it or leave it and if they're selling ninety percent of all [TS]

  the books they might have to take that I think that's the future that publishers [TS]

  feared and I don't think that there's any reason to think that that's crazy [TS]

  theory and i know i think thats sort of along the lines of the argument Steve [TS]

  Jobs laid out in one of the emails that they had his evidence I think to Rupert [TS]

  Murdoch's james Murdoch [TS]

  they the individually published books for Apple got in there was there was [TS]

  flipped rate newsday takes her before Apple launched the App Store [TS]

  did they stick they take an eccentric seventy percent as opposed to 30% [TS]

  remember what I missing something but it was something I'm assuming that it was [TS]

  individually published book I think it was you could because you could publish [TS]

  a book as an app on the App Store came out but now basically taking 70 percent [TS]

  and an apple came out and they had to flip it was only taking 30 percent so it [TS]

  doesn't yeah I mean even though their bare selling things cheaply now more [TS]

  than ever that that always selling things deeply isn't necessarily the best [TS]

  thing I think the App Store Apple's App Store is also an example well and I [TS]

  think that there's a certain fundamental truth to it that it's it is ultimately [TS]

  unsustainable I mean at some point in theory I think you know and maybe you [TS]

  know maybe we literally talking that decades and decades long event horizon [TS]

  Amazon can't keep selling them at a loss [TS]

  something's gotta give you know it's unsustainable and it's all you know in [TS]

  general I think it's better to set up a business to be sustainable right from [TS]

  the start you know and the agency model is sustainable because it's you know [TS]

  there's no selling at a loss involved yeah I guess I wondered what sustainable [TS]

  means though if it had been doing it for 15 years that's a fairly long horizon [TS]

  yeah I guess so [TS]

  the thing that has always made me you know I'm a double-double side of the [TS]

  argument is the fact that the authors guild I mean to say all authors [TS]

  certainly Authors Guild doesn't speak for everybody but the authors guild was [TS]

  strongly on Apple's side you know it was against Amazon side you know any any [TS]

  other thing too i mean it's not even about sustainability [TS]

  it's just sort of the it's the way that pricing is part of your branding right [TS]

  here prices party for any product is sort of part of the brand and you know [TS]

  the publishers were concerned about the $9.99 e-book pricing because they felt [TS]

  like it was setting the you know the expectation in consumers minds the [TS]

  e-books were worth a lot less than physical books and you know it's like [TS]

  you even said a few minutes ago that maybe that is right you know you know [TS]

  that because you're not paying for all of this paper and printing in all the [TS]

  physical shipping in that truck loaded up with all these books to drive across [TS]

  the country and ship these books everywhere they you should expect to pay [TS]

  a lot less maybe but the publishers didn't like it and realized I think [TS]

  correctly I think that the longer Amazon went selling bestsellers like brand new [TS]

  books for $9.99 the more strongly entrenched in consumers minds it would [TS]

  be that that's what books should cause ebooks should cost values the product is [TS]

  almost like a control issue that they've lost they lost control over the pricing [TS]

  of their own product which i think is frustrating and maybe they're wrong [TS]

  maybe they're wrong about expecting to get those higher prices but I don't [TS]

  think that they were wrong to think that they should be the ones who get the pic [TS]

  the price for their product [TS]

  yea certainly agree with that let's take a break we'll come back to keep on any [TS]

  books for a little bit but [TS]

  devices registering ISBN numbers for each of your books because certain [TS]

  booksellers who are going to sell books that don't have them and different [TS]

  publishers have all sorts of different climates well here's the thing tableau [TS]

  and when you're ready to go use that code the talk show so my thanks to [TS]

  tableau publishing for sponsoring the show kind of freaky Baresi sponsorships [TS]

  have been booked weeks in advance and I i did not you know I didn't call judge [TS]

  coats and say hey could do this week because I have sponsors in e-book [TS]

  Publishing is I guess going to jail house works again that's where they got [TS]

  it right [TS]

  a work-release program he seems like a guy who could handle himself in jail [TS]

  yeah it does he's doomed trends so you know ya him and Bob Mansfield would come [TS]

  and just run the place five men already have no doubt man forced out they [TS]

  wouldn't trade my cigarettes in trouble now I have to pay a bit to pay back [TS]

  people who bought you know about that too I guess that you know first Apple is [TS]

  is said there you know who knows if they're going to follow but they said [TS]

  they're going to appeal and I guess if they do then has to come first let's [TS]

  presume that either they don't appeal or they appealing lose then it's it's a [TS]

  separate hearing to establish damages and and you know [TS]

  apples can have to pay some number of million dollars [TS]

  where does the money go though I don't know does did the government has taken [TS]

  or is it somehow reno yeah I think you'd end up well I know it's not a class suit [TS]

  right as a class action lawsuit [TS]

  I don't see how they could possibly return the money to consumers I think [TS]

  they pay the fine to the government the government keeps it right Obama said [TS]

  that works right there en know how to get into that will the Google lives of [TS]

  the people who made it through the sports references I guess that's how it [TS]

  works [TS]

  yeah I guess I mean that's what's so well Microsoft there she was different [TS]

  they basically had to break up their products [TS]

  fine and that was a bigger and more complicated and wider reaching case [TS]

  because again that was that was about the fundamentals of the company I was [TS]

  about Windows and Office I mean it was about everything that Microsoft [TS]

  Microsoft case was truly about everything [TS]

  fundamental to the company whereas like I said you know if the ruling were i [TS]

  mean i dont this isn't even on the table but if the ruling where Apple is forced [TS]

  to leave the e-book market iBookstore shutdown that would I i would have [TS]

  almost no effect on Apple whatsoever I mean maybe that's overstating it a bit [TS]

  but you know I think would be embarrassing certainly but certainly [TS]

  gives its early gains Amazon will leverage yeah but the routine which [TS]

  ultimately is bad for consumers but anyway that's not what's happening but [TS]

  the other thing though is that it's not gonna put the genie back in the bottle [TS]

  and switch the market back to the way it was before wholesale retail like the [TS]

  agency models still stands between even with publishers [TS]

  and Amazon you know I got a bunch of the publishers are guess all of the [TS]

  publishers rather than stand without balloon fight the case all of the [TS]

  publishers settled with the DOJ you know a year ago [TS]

  months ago and I guess just paid fines but they didn't really have to change [TS]

  the way they do business so is the next phase of the trial was supposed to be [TS]

  damages but you know i think thats [TS]

  judges is going to pick some number of you know fifty million dollars an apple [TS]

  pays fine and you know all things gets forgotten but I i mean it I don't think [TS]

  that from you know henceforth books are sold on the agency both both an iBook [TS]

  store in George Street seems like you know the people who were hurt the people [TS]

  I guess theory is also that Amazon customers were hurt by it too I guess so [TS]

  but its money back to Amazon customers right but there's nothing like the [TS]

  tactics were illegal you know are found to be illegal [TS]

  you know that that the way that Apple to all of them and said hey everybody else [TS]

  is on board we want you on board to that's what he let me just like you said [TS]

  before the agency model itself there's nothing illegal about it i mean nobody's [TS]

  complaining or saying that the app stores in any way you know price fixing [TS]

  it was the collusion between the publishers to all do this it ones and [TS]

  Apple as the coordinator of that maybe facilitator is the better word because [TS]

  they were gonna add you know open this high-profile store where the very good [TS]

  start [TS]

  so we are paid less in taxes next year [TS]

  yeah exactly tax-cut thanks to my new macbook 13 MacBooks for long so I guess [TS]

  there's anything else on ebook thing we should maybe we talked about the other [TS]

  big suit that's coming up is that the only reason to see if I can find the [TS]

  Apple should protect me from my porn addiction is a big case I love to hear [TS]

  about it a Florida man is so this is above the law which I guess is a law is [TS]

  suing Apple for millions because he couldn't be bothered to figure out how [TS]

  iTunes works he is complaining that Apple products should ship with [TS]

  basically the child protection on so that people cannot accidentally visit [TS]

  porn sites because he accidentally visited porn sites and it ruined his [TS]

  marriage accidentally yes accidentally [TS]

  apparently taped in instead of Facebook popular porn sites I'll say it also [TS]

  starting with F and ending with book alright that's a good way to put it [TS]

  accidentally you know how that happens [TS]

  yeah that's what I does swear words were you were gonna put in regular words so [TS]

  we wound up at fbook dot com and there's life went to hell right and clearly [TS]

  marriage his marriage was ruined because it couldn't stop looking at naked ladies [TS]

  defective a defective MacBook they can't just quickly stopped showing him he was [TS]

  asking it to show up and the complaint is written so great i mean it's a [TS]

  terrible thing but the bits that are quoted in this piece or just seroquel [TS]

  that that's a court case I can get I yeah I'm looking forward to this I hope [TS]

  this goes to trial [TS]

  don't think you will want to get I want to see Phil Schiller on as human beings [TS]

  themselves Apple employees know that a man is born full of harmonies and [TS]

  attacks attacked two by women engaging in sexual acts with the intent to cause [TS]

  vicarious arousal direct quote from the from the lawsuit I gotta feeling that [TS]

  this guy I gotta feeling this game I need a better lawyer than himself I like [TS]

  this is really a lawyer and and also also he has his own band name of yeah [TS]

  and they say I looked it up earlier host warriors [TS]

  here's my favorite part of his his lawsuit is the the unfair competition [TS]

  close and you know he's got a point now Apple's already just you know two days [TS]

  ago been found guilty of unfair competition so I think he's got a case [TS]

  here [TS]

  unfair competition and interference of the marital contract plaintiff became [TS]

  totally out of sync and his romantic relationship with his wife which was a [TS]

  consequence of his use of his Apple product I mean I'd write stop that all [TS]

  the rest of it there you go that's it there's your case he got out of sync [TS]

  with his wife he also claims that if this is help help the actually help the [TS]

  porn industry if Apple is so because it will be an unregulated internet partner [TS]

  and is hurting brick and mortar or a mom-and-pop mom it is the guy from above [TS]

  the law [TS]

  first of all mom-and-pop shops gonna be is going into the pantheon of greatest [TS]

  phrases in legal completely like this part of the point of began desiring [TS]

  younger more beautiful girls featured in porn videos then his wife who was no [TS]

  longer 21 his failed marriage caused the plane of two experienced emotional [TS]

  distress to the point of hospitalization plaintiff could no longer tell the [TS]

  difference between internet pornography and dependable intercourse do the [TS]

  content be accessed through the Apple products you couldn't tell the [TS]

  difference if you can't tell the difference you may be doing it wrong [TS]

  am i screwing my wife at this or am I looking for no I can't tell nobody had a [TS]

  red and it was yeah it's got it because the pixels would have been a dead [TS]

  giveaway that's right it would have been a dead giveaway so we'll look forward to [TS]

  more about that well and that coincidentally enough leads us directly [TS]

  into next sponsor our next by our second sponsor is domestic beast and they have [TS]

  absolutely nothing to do with pornography domestic beast is in fact a [TS]

  small design agency and they design all sorts of stuff but here's the thing that [TS]

  they love they love dogs and they hate ugly dog stuff all the paper you know [TS]

  for your dog and hate all the ugly stuff to their designers so they design their [TS]

  own well-designed well-built dog stuff and it's all in one place and they built [TS]

  their own store and you can go there [TS]

  go check it out right now to check out this stuff is great at WWW dot domestic [TS]

  peace 2.com and you could tell us to get to the website you can see our man this [TS]

  is nice to nice design site they've got great products of clever stuff they've [TS]

  got a dog bowl designed to make dogs eat slower cuz I've seen dogs I don't know [TS]

  but you got a dog but there are some dogs who who are sort of pathological [TS]

  about food and and will try to eat at all it wants yes my dog grown now he [TS]

  goes through no I mean my dog growing up was sort of like that like he he was [TS]

  sort of like Great Depression dog there are like that [TS]

  he would try to eat and terrible food once where they've got a ball that can [TS]

  make a dog eat slower here's a great one [TS]

  this is great they've gotta poop bag that shaped like a mitten for easy pick [TS]

  up isn't that great now that you know if your this is a city dweller you know [TS]

  what to do with the poop is a serious issue for civilized people here I [TS]

  guarantee you I would be appalled if there is anybody out there who listens [TS]

  to this talk show who's one of those dirtbags who takes her dog out and let's [TS]

  improve and it looks you know does like a left right and if nobody's looking [TS]

  just walks away and leaves it there because you know you're that's the scum [TS]

  of the earth right there [TS]

  yes everybody listen to this show civilized you pick up the poop but how [TS]

  do you pick up they've got a great they've gotta poop in there you go [TS]

  as amazing quality dog products that make sense work great and fit your style [TS]

  domestic beast dot com we're doomed by I think this is a fantastic sponsorship [TS]

  for this show because the show in general has nothing to do with dogs I [TS]

  don't generally linked to dog related stuff but my audience I would think is [TS]

  defined by people who have good taste in like the nicer things and so those of [TS]

  you who have dogs I this stuff is is right up your alley [TS]

  it's like almost like the canonical [TS]

  this is amazing well you know it's tough we have to buy any way except for the [TS]

  probably the codes and stuff like that but the poop bags I mean we have to buy [TS]

  the food bags anyway I also like the day just call it poop and you have her over [TS]

  the thing that says Cebu [TS]

  and it's it's also I would just further say and and to me it just speaks to the [TS]

  design quality of their products are eight implies it the website is just too [TS]

  lovely I think it's a terrific terrific website yeah I have an internet famous [TS]

  poodle and I do know that know your your pool is not yea big 85 pounds eats so [TS]

  maybe he can slim down a little bit big as well as barely a little bit little [TS]

  bit overweight but big ass pool is is one of my favorite dog breeds it really [TS]

  is I i mean it since I did she get the big ass proof that the technical name [TS]

  for that breed each as far as I'm concerned there's the miniature poodle [TS]

  standard is what it is actually there's you know but that's so standard is the [TS]

  big one [TS]

  yeah standards the big one yeah that's what see but I would you think the [TS]

  standard be like the middle high one that is because thats miniature and then [TS]

  the small and dirty cup teacup that's the one where like that shakes all the [TS]

  time and that they will see like girls who put him in there person just walk [TS]

  around town centre [TS]

  your your dog what you don't seem grants grant that's a good dog so grant [TS]

  probably does not fit in a purse no person fit in anything [TS]

  she gonna car he's already doesn't like he's not crazy about the car but he [TS]

  wants to go wherever we go so if we're going to the car he wants to go get my [TS]

  car gets used to get car sick when he was little when he was younger and he's [TS]

  he's better about it now he doesn't really get that sick but he's not crazy [TS]

  but the car he doesn't he doesn't stick his head out the window [TS]

  my dog grown-up Chester he he he was ahead sticker under the stick his head [TS]

  out the window just not for it just any even if the window isn't even open a [TS]

  crack you would like me to make this thing go down on a stick my head out the [TS]

  window fell out the window down the road [TS]

  yea well fortunately my brother was on a leash and he basically just we were [TS]

  driving she's a small west highland terrier and and he just like we're [TS]

  driving along and he was like hanging on at least she's hanging there by the [TS]

  leash like show DVDs so she was alright so she was fine nothing happened just [TS]

  before setting up maybe they forgot about that after allowing them to put [TS]

  some kind of SPCA warning no dogs were harmed in the making of this grant know [TS]

  when you're taking him to the vet know my dog growing well actually I think he [TS]

  probably does when we get close [TS]

  ouija we could see knows he recognizes places we get close to them we would [TS]

  take to Chester Chester was my best we could determine it was probably about [TS]

  three-quarters pool hall and maybe like one quarter Pekingese or something like [TS]

  that but looked the curly hair but physically looked a lot like a pool was [TS]

  closed but he is likely to take him a lot of places to come to shopping and [TS]

  window [TS]

  but he would spend a lot of time you know so we took a lot of places in the [TS]

  car he got a car couple times a week when we took him to the vet he knew [TS]

  before we even left that he just knew he knew and he would go like rigidly [TS]

  carpet and I could make you pick them up [TS]

  supposed to like if you know something you know you just open a door near under [TS]

  the car he knew you could maybe you could smell an idea I don't know [TS]

  something about that always amazed me [TS]

  yeah amazing how much the user knows it's just talk to him and his sister [TS]

  just like smelling like trying to figure out what what's going on as you can tell [TS]

  how I feel about going to the dentist how you feel about going to the airport [TS]

  yeah but yes it is actually exactly can we are you comfortable talking the talk [TS]

  about that I'm not comfortable talking about but we can talk about it in the [TS]

  plane that crashed at SFO a week ago was about a week ago yeah yeah it's almost [TS]

  exactly a week ago it was easy ana which I had never heard of before and after I [TS]

  was I thought it was the airline lost its so amazing is that was she an [TS]

  Oceania Oceania Oceania airlines Shiamak oceanic [TS]

  be close enough yeah and I'm gonna make light of this a little bit I'd really [TS]

  don't I do not mean to make light of the the two teenagers from China who died on [TS]

  the flight many of the people who did have some luck on the plane actually [TS]

  crashed it was a crash there was fire the tail ripped off the plane and have [TS]

  like three hundred and three people on the plane only two people died which to [TS]

  me is amazing [TS]

  yeah yeah I mean you know someone who is uncomfortable flying it's actually you [TS]

  know it's terrible but it's also because my my image is always just like the [TS]

  whole everything goes right yeah everything reduced to dust [TS]

  it's heartbreaking to think of the girls who died and I don't mean to make light [TS]

  of that and some people who had to go to the hospital for varying degrees of [TS]

  injuries lot of people you know neck injuries and back injuries from the [TS]

  bouncing up and down and I guess even with seat belt a lot of people hit their [TS]

  heads on the overhead think well I guess you can I mean well depends on how tight [TS]

  you to see what did you see the video so there is a guy now I avoided any who was [TS]

  just you know I forget how far away he was from from the airport but not too [TS]

  far you know had a good view of the runways was there with his family on a [TS]

  trip like his kids in the camera they were just watching planes land and he [TS]

  had his camera you know right there and saw the plane the whole thing it's kind [TS]

  of amazing footage but it did it like hit you know I guess that happens a [TS]

  plane was coming in way too soon and was gonna hit the water before the pilot [TS]

  realized it and tried to pull up but it was too late to pull out but that's why [TS]

  the plane hit tail first pilot had the nose runny nose pointing up to try to [TS]

  get back up in the air but it was too late and so it it tell first in the tail [TS]

  broke off whole plane hit the ground and then bounced up in the air and then came [TS]

  back down and skidded to a halt but I guess when it bounced a lot of people [TS]

  went up in it there had some people are but there were also a couple hundred and [TS]

  some people were like a hundred and sixty people who walked away unscathed [TS]

  right on Twitter it's amazing the sky David I make pronounces your name wrong [TS]

  you see you when David Eun you know and it seemed to work for Samsung was he was [TS]

  the first guy that the picture he posted on Twitter that I don't know just yet I [TS]

  just crash-landed I just crash landed at SFO [TS]

  tell ripped off its a path link yeah most like the picture everyone seems [TS]

  most everyone I work for Samsung think so but he is Korean maybe he does but [TS]

  the second reply to rumors from a friend of the show [TS]

  frequent guest dan Frommer who's to say holy shit glad you're okay but it's you [TS]

  know he took the picture like I don't know maybe fifty feet after he got out [TS]

  of the airplane but he's fine but here's the thing that you follow the rest of [TS]

  his treats then and you see that he didn't leave SFO for like another seven [TS]

  hours and that this is the part I wanted to bring up I feel like if I'm on a [TS]

  plane crashes and I'm lucky enough that I am ok well I just wanna go six or [TS]

  seven hours let me get my walked off let me just going to go have dinner right [TS]

  drink right when I have a drink [TS]

  yeah I assume they they they want to interview him I can you probably know [TS]

  like any accident you want to make sure I mean maybe have somebody checking out [TS]

  of a meeting to go to a doctor but I can do it I feel alright you know is that [TS]

  absurd that I just feel I am I saying expected immediately go i mean clearly [TS]

  and pick up here but I would you know I feel like an hour at the most I feel [TS]

  like you know take my name down sure that you are having to fight you know [TS]

  list you know put mark me down as being OK and you know and I know it seems like [TS]

  there would be paperwork I guess but it seems like six or seven hours of [TS]

  paperwork is asking a lot airport everything takes longer to reply I guess [TS]

  I would be ok you probably have to fill out some certainly can't even imagine [TS]

  as all other luggage is probably the burned after that well in the luggage [TS]

  goes on the bottom right so you have to presume that that just got destroyed by [TS]

  the friction and that's the plan is it didn't go on the wheels it to slit I [TS]

  would I would guess that luggage that was underneath was pretty much toast for [TS]

  you probably stuck in a while back but maybe the overhead bags the stuff you [TS]

  put over your seat might have been right now and I guess that's the other thing [TS]

  too though I would want I would want it you know once you get the fire out can I [TS]

  get in there and get my over head back that asking too much of my name is you [TS]

  know you're the ones who crashed the fuck an airplane to let me get my bag [TS]

  and let me get on you know get on with my trip but you probably thought of this [TS]

  right [TS]

  have you ever thought about this I mean I think about it every time it's just [TS]

  the FB fly over the water and then you see a bunch of rocks and then there's [TS]

  the there's the runway right yeah and everyone you know every time I find I [TS]

  think wow it's kind of amazing that they pull this off all the time [TS]

  think like every once in a while someone would just guess so I don't know that [TS]

  does seem you know again now I'm not making light of it seems it seems like [TS]

  it was pilot error to see you know it doesn't seem like yeah that's what's [TS]

  that's what that's what I guess it's the sort of thing they weren't going fast [TS]

  enough to go on like a hundred and thirty heard and it made it clear that's [TS]

  it [TS]

  CTEK there's there's a lot more land in front of the it still raised sort of [TS]

  plateau to fly over a bunch of others wrote in it raised in a climbs up but [TS]

  they're still before you see the actual runway I think there's a lot more dirt [TS]

  short you probably just get on it seems to have really long [TS]

  runways because I don't really even recall seeing the beginning or end of a [TS]

  runway it seems like we're already landing in the middle of it and already [TS]

  you know taking off always in the middle of it I i dont maybe I'm wrong but I [TS]

  think we have a very long runways the one airport I've been to that I am NOT I [TS]

  have had you on we talked about your uncomfortable yes like anxiety I'm not [TS]

  I'm not nervous flyer said that before but the one airport into that have to [TS]

  say made me a little nervous is Wellington New Zealand yeah unbelievably [TS]

  short runway at the runways about 30 feet long commercial airliners and you [TS]

  don't know that when you're landing like the first time you go and I'm not you [TS]

  know I don't like stare out the window while we're planning on using it anyway [TS]

  but we took a high tech web stock and went to the mountain that looks at you [TS]

  can look right down over the airport and its like shockingly short runway and [TS]

  that made me a little nervous about this taken off the next time really seems [TS]

  like you got it back up to the last inch and in really gunned it and then you [TS]

  don't take off like the plane doesn't take off until he gets to the end of the [TS]

  runway seems like like a white you get like one shot my brother landed on [TS]

  aircraft carrier once I'm that crazy that when you think about it he says he [TS]

  does military military expert at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey [TS]

  and occasional in the past is gone on to these ships to do talks officers so yeah [TS]

  yeah so he stopping his he'd you you basically just get use to a stop the [TS]

  only way it works is with those like bungee cords right yeah you gonna hook [TS]

  launching and landing [TS]

  tell her both to land and there's like something I think [TS]

  something like a slingshot yeah yeah but the distal get the plane to stop it's [TS]

  almost like flying into a net right here is the other part about this that I i [TS]

  this would make me very very nervous have to say even as it generally not [TS]

  nervous fires the fact and I think about it makes intuitive sense cuz they [TS]

  investigate the hell out of these things to fight you know they're going to [TS]

  investigate every single detail of the plane is that that the plane I don't [TS]

  know if it is as we speak but as of yesterday or the day before was still [TS]

  there on the runway at SFO the burned-out hulk of the crash plane [TS]

  because you know the FAA investigators were still going over it it's like a [TS]

  crime scene almost like you can't can't move in [TS]

  yeah and so like you know there's all sorts of tweets from people who are like [TS]

  freaked out because they're like to their plane is taxiing around to take [TS]

  off and it's going around crashed airplane like I have to admit that that [TS]

  would that's really freaky that's a disturbing ya [TS]

  a flat at Tokyo and Simon and we got held up for just a few minutes and they [TS]

  said they came out and said we're gonna be here for just a minute while they [TS]

  clear some debris off the runway and I look out the window and I see these [TS]

  chips these days in jumpsuits with hardhats on Dragon a big piece of sheet [TS]

  metal and apparently on takeoff the plane in front of us just like dropped [TS]

  piece just fell off and then they turned around and came back with us so that was [TS]

  the first thing I saw before the 11 hours flight so my wife [TS]

  amy is like you nervous fire very nervous and she was when this happen [TS]

  plane crash happened she was very keenly following the breaking news but I think [TS]

  also like you like she was a following a breaking news but like not like looking [TS]

  at the pictures look at the pictures 1 watch the video but keenly observed in [TS]

  this mid makes her a flight anxiety like now that there's been a crash like the [TS]

  fact that like I said what is great because this is like the first it's been [TS]

  like four and a half years since there is like the longest stretch in the [TS]

  history of the united states without a commercial air for airlines yeah which [TS]

  really is amazing right and only two people died in like the you know it's [TS]

  more safe than ever before [TS]

  almost dramatically so doesn't reassure you and she was like knows a lot more [TS]

  reassuring than it was when I had years when it happened [TS]

  yeah yeah I mean for me it's kind of a six and one half because it's in a way [TS]

  because my face my fears just like the whole thing goes so it's kind of like [TS]

  well you know sometimes you have an accident and that doesn't happen but at [TS]

  the same time enough for you like it almost like a like a wily coyote type [TS]

  thing or maybe like the only reason that these planes can fly is that we think [TS]

  they can play and eventually the laws of physics are gonna catch up in the middle [TS]

  of a flight the laws of physics are going to say hey a gigantic bucked hey [TS]
