66: Geared Up For CES


00:00:00   you geared up to stark cute girls at ski lot can you imagine not having Galaxy [TS]

00:00:13   Garrett CES it's like they don't even let you in hand them out at the airport [TS]

00:00:20   I saw I took up the ass I know why I took a stupid polarized somebody like to [TS]

00:00:28   add on Twitter on time [TS]

00:00:31   time magazine site today it was like answer these questions and will predict [TS]

00:00:37   your political leaning and they're not political questions are sensibly you [TS]

00:00:44   know it's not like you know what you think about gun control or something [TS]

00:00:48   like that and I came out [TS]

00:00:51   72% conservative according to this and one of them was that conservative [TS]

00:00:57   qualities was that I like dogs more than cats interesting but I don't think that [TS]

00:01:02   that's I think that's nonsense I mean I'm not saying that I don't think [TS]

00:01:06   there's any kind of I don't know maybe I'm wrong maybe if you polled thousand [TS]

00:01:11   people maybe you know maybe conservatives do like dogs more than I [TS]

00:01:17   don't know seems crazy to me it seems that the Internet has embraced cats more [TS]

00:01:24   than dogs I don't know why but I don't like yeah just lost a lot of my audience [TS]

00:01:35   there [TS]

00:01:36   retailer baseball now we should talk about we can talk about the poppies yeah [TS]

00:01:42   well for people who don't know there's there's a bourbon is a very complex [TS]

00:01:50   story but there's a bourbon brand called Pappy Van Winkle and and I guess they [TS]

00:01:54   were out for awhile you know like back in the seventies or eighties I don't [TS]

00:01:58   know they brought it back and they had this old fashioned they've had a [TS]

00:02:02   high-end brand and they have various vintages age there's tenure Pappy's [TS]

00:02:10   twelve-year Pappy's thirteen-year old ride which I believe since its rise an [TS]

00:02:16   entirely different mash really sort of it's the same brand but it's a different [TS]

00:02:19   beverage there's a fifteen-year Pappy's twenty year and then there's a 23 and I [TS]

00:02:27   think long story short you know it was sort of aficionados brand and you know [TS]

00:02:32   the order is the more expensive was it was always a little hard to find a [TS]

00:02:36   little expensive but then somehow at some point in the last two years or so [TS]

00:02:40   it it like exploded and everybody got on you know kind of caught on to the event [TS]

00:02:48   legal stuff is fantastic and now it's impossible to get what I had never heard [TS]

00:02:54   of it until until there was a scandal about it being stolen or something I'd [TS]

00:03:02   never heard of it and then like I don't know six months ago or something it was [TS]

00:03:06   like a piece is a huge deal you need to care about it I had never heard of it [TS]

00:03:12   there was there was an inside job at the at the end of it to the distillery or if [TS]

00:03:17   it's just where they store it but it was an inside job and a whole bunch of cases [TS]

00:03:22   of it was stolen [TS]

00:03:23   about six months ago nobody died I believe that crime is still gone [TS]

00:03:26   unsolved you know in pennsylvania has everybody was joking about that I don't [TS]

00:03:34   know I don't think so [TS]

00:03:36   pennsylvania's weird state where everybody including bars has to buy [TS]

00:03:40   stuff through the state and I don't think it's very tricky for bars to [TS]

00:03:46   obtain it but a local establishment we're very close to me here [TS]

00:03:50   great barbecue place also help you know clearly a great bar Percy Street BBQ at [TS]

00:03:56   9th and South here in philadelphia got their hands on the full the full six [TS]

00:04:03   flights for six varieties of of stuff of an illegal distillery and had a special [TS]

00:04:10   event yesterday at five o'clock I had no idea how was gonna go but I figured it [TS]

00:04:15   was going to fill up quick so I got there before five which was good because [TS]

00:04:19   I think they said by like 515 route [TS]

00:04:22   well what they did and it was pretty smart so they had all six I I can't help [TS]

00:04:28   but think they had more of the lesser varieties but when you came in the door [TS]

00:04:33   for the event there is a guy at the front door and you had to tell there is [TS]

00:04:37   a limit of three ounces per patron of anything you can only a person can only [TS]

00:04:43   get three houses and you had to pick it as you came in and they would give you a [TS]

00:04:47   little chip so I i picked two ounces of 23 in one ounce at twenty so I got two [TS]

00:04:54   chips 423 14 20 and then you know you could use that as you want it I wanted a [TS]

00:05:01   single to outpour of 23 I could've turned into [TS]

00:05:05   I went 111 I went 123 one of the 22 sorting see what the difference was an [TS]

00:05:13   animal back to the 23 and they advertise it is not breaking the bank because I [TS]

00:05:19   think they could have charged an arm and a leg for the stuff but they charged [TS]

00:05:21   very very fair prices [TS]

00:05:24   yeah that's part of the legend to that cost $200 for a glass of the you know [TS]

00:05:31   the good stuff [TS]

00:05:32   yea well and then now that it's gotten crazy like I mean quick look on ebay [TS]

00:05:35   here people are selling one thing he searched from on eBay for for most of [TS]

00:05:45   what you find are empty bottles people just selling bottles which I can't help [TS]

00:05:50   but think I mean who wants an empty I mean maybe I can see why some people [TS]

00:05:56   might want to keep a bottle that they drank if it was a special occasion keep [TS]

00:06:01   it as a memento or something like that but why would you want to buy an empty [TS]

00:06:07   bottle from somebody else unless you were looking to like going out with [TS]

00:06:12   something else [TS]

00:06:14   you know don't get it when I was in like high school and colleges to order a lot [TS]

00:06:21   of beer branded nonsense off ebay you know Zippo lighter and inflatable [TS]

00:06:29   fishing stuff just weird like Miller High Life crap which I thought was cool [TS]

00:06:33   but yeah I don't know why he would order an empty bottle of I've heard I i cant [TS]

00:06:40   even find some people have said that you know I'm not a legal it is and I guess [TS]

00:06:44   in certain states it's legal to sell alcohol on ebay but you know but that on [TS]

00:06:49   the second hand market the 23 year Pappy Van Winkle is going for like took $2,000 [TS]

00:06:55   $2,500 a bottle cuz it's just you can't get it you know the retail price the [TS]

00:07:00   retail price for the 23 is is a couple hundred bucks and is it is it awesome [TS]

00:07:07   I don't think any bourbon is worth a couple hundred bucks about that's you [TS]

00:07:12   know I mean like I like to spend the money I do like to indulge and buy good [TS]

00:07:16   stuff you know I like bourbon so I like to buy good bourbon but to me it isn't [TS]

00:07:26   even what I could theoretically afford it I get a certain point it's just [TS]

00:07:29   bourbon you know you can't drink that much of the time and I'm very very I [TS]

00:07:35   feel pretty confident that I would fail you know to to do a Pepsi challenge [TS]

00:07:41   between you know you know that I I don't know that I could taste the difference [TS]

00:07:47   between like you can you can if you put six Bourbons in front of me and said one [TS]

00:07:54   of these is 23 Pappy Van Winkle I'm not entirely sure all that I could figure [TS]

00:07:58   that does it have a happy in general doesn't have a strong noticeable taster [TS]

00:08:05   flavors and just urban the one thing that came out recently is that the one [TS]

00:08:11   thing that they do differently than a lot of other burdens are almost all of [TS]

00:08:16   the Bourbons is that they have a higher for now it's it's all in all wheat that [TS]

00:08:23   they don't they put the minimum amount corn in and that there's another bourbon [TS]

00:08:30   called JL weller which is made from the same match there is this thing I linked [TS]

00:08:37   to on during fireball month or two ago which tried to explain the complicated [TS]

00:08:44   relationship between various Bourbons in rise in Kentucky and Tennessee and Ohio [TS]

00:08:50   and other places where the made in the USA where there's all these early just [TS]

00:08:55   to rats right the AM or less where there's only a couple of what they call [TS]

00:08:58   the day start with a mash mash sold to these distilleries to turn into bourbon [TS]

00:09:04   but you know and presumably what happens is they'll take the same match that [TS]

00:09:10   meant [TS]

00:09:10   Pappy's the Pappy Van Winkle distillery will buy it and they'll put it put it [TS]

00:09:16   into barrels for aging and then they'll sample these every couple years just to [TS]

00:09:23   see how this battle going how's this going and that the better the barrel the [TS]

00:09:27   more the longer you know they'll let it go and only the best of those barrels [TS]

00:09:31   will go for the full 23 years and then the lesser ones will you know they'll [TS]

00:09:36   say ok this one was his bottle this one in ten this ones you know it's not going [TS]

00:09:39   to get any better than the bottle it but that there's this other brand jail [TS]

00:09:43   weller which is it retails for like I think it's like 18 19 bucks a bottle but [TS]

00:09:49   it's made from the same mash is Pappy and that it effectively in a poor man's [TS]

00:09:57   pappy it's more or less like the same match but they the stuff that wasn't [TS]

00:10:00   good enough to be turned in the keys and that it does taste a lot like poppies [TS]

00:10:04   ginger ale and it just so they don't put any ride at all in there [TS]

00:10:14   mash and so you know if you know just basic American whiskeys you know the [TS]

00:10:21   difference between bourbon in rise that rise sort of pepper and hot is the basic [TS]

00:10:28   difference him a basic bourbon and a basic right Pappy's to me and it's not [TS]

00:10:32   just knowing that it doesn't have riots like sort of the taste of it is sort of [TS]

00:10:36   what rise to bourbon happy is the opposite to regular bourbon it's less [TS]

00:10:42   separate less hot and smoother and really is a lot more drinkable need [TS]

00:10:48   anyway the tasting was pretty cool yeah but you know it and I did I Instagram [TS]

00:10:56   today because I gotta go there but it was like a one time only 15 minutes to [TS]

00:11:01   communicate these tokens and it came out of it that's a bride Tokyo and I brought [TS]

00:11:07   back from some whiskey but haven't really had a chance to crack into it yet [TS]

00:11:14   the other thing I thought was definitely true side-by-side going from the 23 to [TS]

00:11:18   the 2010 back to the 23 [TS]

00:11:20   absolutely tasted the difference the 23 which I I think I only had once before [TS]

00:11:29   in my life and it was on a trip to Vancouver three or four years ago with a [TS]

00:11:35   bunch of friends for somebody's birthday and it was before the whole Pappy's [TS]

00:11:40   thing exploded and me my pal gym ray saw it on the list of available disk and how [TS]

00:11:52   can this possibly be and was like a totally reasonable price per poor I [TS]

00:11:55   don't like $20 a poor and we we asked to really get shorts 23 shows the bottle [TS]

00:12:02   and you know I'd like to have him $20 report which was unbelievable [TS]

00:12:10   but anyway that I think the difference for anybody who cares is that the 23 is [TS]

00:12:17   little bit a little bit not here a little bit spicier I don't know it [TS]

00:12:22   definitely it's almost a little bit less like what I've associate with regular [TS]

00:12:25   Pappy's whereas the 20 is that smooth there wow that's definitely the Platonic [TS]

00:12:34   ideal of pappy which one is like the you know I would say the most common but the [TS]

00:12:41   one that's kind of associated the most with being the good ones that the 24 the [TS]

00:12:45   23 I guess I don't know I guess the 20 and the 23 or both fairly rare I've I [TS]

00:12:51   almost never seen it used to be not that hard to find it like that shit hole bar [TS]

00:12:57   in San Francisco the tempus no not that one little messed up I don't know what's [TS]

00:13:14   going on across the street from the Palace Hotel forget the name but anyway [TS]

00:13:21   they used to just habit sixteen seventeen dollars poorer than they ran [TS]

00:13:26   out [TS]

00:13:26   Parc 55 Hotel Bar used to have the twelve-year just sitting there [TS]

00:13:31   get it and you know wasn't examine only priced back in the old days ten to [TS]

00:13:36   twelve years the one that I used to see the most often but not quite the [TS]

00:13:40   youngest but not aged all that much to keep an eye out for it to see who are [TS]

00:13:52   members of the executive agency the Wynn Hotel and Casino used to have copies on [TS]

00:14:00   the list again very you know it's you know it's the Vegas strip and [TS]

00:14:05   everything's little bit expensive in the Wynn and Encore is the best place on [TS]

00:14:09   this trip so you know even more expensive but like totally reasonable it [TS]

00:14:14   was like a typical poor of a good bourbon when Iran Khorasan twelve [TS]

00:14:20   thirteen fourteen dollars in a staff Pappy's for like 16 crazy of course not [TS]

00:14:25   anymore not even listed which brings us to get the big roller [TS]

00:14:32   yeah I'll bad it can get up to like this right the sky casino there's a button [TS]

00:14:38   and go in there you know I was there for opening weekend and I haven't been there [TS]

00:14:44   since I haven't been to Vegas in almost 10 years of embarrassing that's a long [TS]

00:14:49   time [TS]

00:14:50   yeah you going to go in the elevator and there's a button that says KY casinos [TS]

00:14:57   like the top floor of course you can present you have to have a special card [TS]

00:15:01   to get in so I asked somebody at the hotel ones I went down the sky casino [TS]

00:15:05   and they're like like like people with $100,000 [TS]

00:15:11   it's like they don't usually like high limit live most casinos have like [TS]

00:15:19   highland area where a lot of background [TS]

00:15:22   and blackjack tables that start at $100 maybe even higher on the weekend it's [TS]

00:15:29   like for the people who like that high limit lounges yeah did you read that [TS]

00:15:35   book 10 years old now by a Wall Street Journal writer who got I think of [TS]

00:15:40   $40,000 advance and the book was that he was gambling has advanced away in Vegas [TS]

00:15:46   now I don't think so yes it was good i mean especially for you know that had [TS]

00:15:52   just turned 21 so is very exciting this is this the the gambling we can't afford [TS]

00:15:57   to do was he like like had a gambling problem or that was the premise like he [TS]

00:16:04   was a premise of the book right he's gonna take his advanced gambling and [TS]

00:16:09   then write about what happen and like the kind of treatment of guns yeah and [TS]

00:16:15   you know all the money he won and lost and won and in you know [TS]

00:16:19   interspersed with stories about his famous Vegas people and he was a wall [TS]

00:16:24   street journal reporter I think that was what the cover said you know I could [TS]

00:16:29   just be a freelancer something but yeah something like that [TS]

00:16:32   gotta find it up forty ok yes I'm like that I find it I'll send it to you [TS]

00:16:40   alright that'd be great yes it was fun and a great way to do it and you you [TS]

00:16:45   know you might go further than you think with that I forgot how long that he [TS]

00:16:51   liked stayed there until I think he got sick of it and then he still had some [TS]

00:16:55   money or something and then he came back again and lost all but maybe I don't [TS]

00:16:59   remember I don't wanna I wanna spoke too much of it but something like that it's [TS]

00:17:05   crazy which brings us to see yes yeah and what has now become an annual [TS]

00:17:10   tradition which is after see us I have you on the show we talk about CES even [TS]

00:17:17   though neither of us has ever have ever been I think last year I actually [TS]

00:17:23   listened to it yesterday and I think we pledge to go this year [TS]

00:17:28   dunno but the funny part is the funny part is I asked you to be on the show [TS]

00:17:31   this week so I thought you know I know you weren't there and you know I for [TS]

00:17:38   every reason that I asked you last year the same reason I thought you'd be a [TS]

00:17:41   good guide to talk about it you know CBS from the far this year and then after [TS]

00:17:46   IDM do and say hey can you have time to do the show this week as soon as I hit [TS]

00:17:50   Send I was like hey wait a minute deja-vu [TS]

00:17:52   did this last year and I quickly I was like oh yeah and then I remembered that [TS]

00:17:56   what we agreed to go and actually this year even more than last year I'm kind [TS]

00:18:02   of mad that I didn't go cuz everyone you know and I don't want to repeat [TS]

00:18:06   everything I said last time we can just linked to that show everyone I know who [TS]

00:18:11   was there for the right reasons seem to have a lot of fun yeah I totally agree I [TS]

00:18:16   can we could just maybe we could displace and all the audio from last [TS]

00:18:21   year but now I had that same feeling we're like at the beginning at the start [TS]

00:18:28   of the seems like if you go to cover the show in any sense whether you're there [TS]

00:18:32   to actually do like hundred posts a week like the very jarring gadget or even if [TS]

00:18:40   your gonna take a saner or filtered approach you know and and do a lot of [TS]

00:18:45   the filtering before you've presented to your reader like I don't like pubs new [TS]

00:18:50   site or something like that or like my favorite the wire cutter who did one [TS]

00:18:54   post for all of CES which is just a love it it's so awesome they took like the [TS]

00:18:58   most insane thing with 5,000 vendors it one post which is so great but even so [TS]

00:19:04   it seems like you go there you try to get there by sunday even though the show [TS]

00:19:08   doesn't officially start till Tuesday it seems like Sunday night the pre-show [TS]

00:19:12   stuff starts Monday there's a lot of announcements and then like Tuesday [TS]

00:19:17   Wednesday Thursday like the main show days [TS]

00:19:19   and I think the main like you're already you're already sweaty so when you start [TS]

00:19:25   drinking and gambling and whatever but it's in preparation I watched a bunch of [TS]

00:19:35   the verge videos and looked at some of those you know that every year there's [TS]

00:19:39   the article of the 10 most ridiculous things that we saw at CES in that kind [TS]

00:19:45   of stuff and the kind of comparison their release from to mind is is another [TS]

00:19:51   thing that of course never been to Burning Man it's just like the same just [TS]

00:19:57   a sea like endless CEO of ridiculous nonsense and and a lot of garbage and [TS]

00:20:03   people smell bad but if you're there for the right reasons it can be really fun [TS]

00:20:08   yeah I think the difference between Burning Man in CES from me in some way [TS]

00:20:15   like miss a daytime hours both of them there's a sort of I'd like to see it at [TS]

00:20:19   least once but then in Burning Man tonight you have to sleep in a dirty [TS]

00:20:23   tent where you at CES you can see hotel totally which had a real big deal for me [TS]

00:20:31   sleeping in a tent I'm kind of hoping I go from here till a long happy life and [TS]

00:20:38   eventual death with never having slept in a tent again so i dont no me hagas to [TS]

00:20:47   me as a burning Man with ya just you know any of those pictures there there [TS]

00:20:57   there can be thousands of people in the field of view it seems just unbelievable [TS]

00:21:01   and you know of course a lot of them are there to do actual work like there have [TS]

00:21:08   been some pretty good serious stories about people who are therefore actual [TS]

00:21:14   job functions and one of the things that seem ridiculous to me at first about [TS]

00:21:19   this year was like a Marissa Mayer's giving the keynote one but then I but [TS]

00:21:24   then I read an article about how you know as digital media has become so much [TS]

00:21:30   a part of the consumer electronics industry huge ad deals are happening out [TS]

00:21:35   there and so you know you see some very strange binds of who's that guy David [TS]

00:21:43   Blaine doing magic tricks in front of Dick Costolo from Twitter just to see [TS]

00:21:49   that has easy and yeah I'm sure Marissa Mayer and David Pogue you know went from [TS]

00:21:54   the keynote straight into a meeting with Samsung or something it's at a register [TS]

00:22:00   billion dollar check so they're people are doing work out there too but also [TS]

00:22:08   just insanity to it does seem like a lot of the consensus reporting i've seen [TS]

00:22:16   from CES this year is that the craziness was dialed down and not in terms of the [TS]

00:22:23   size and scope of things but just like the this stupid crazy I don't even [TS]

00:22:32   understand what's going on here sort of yeah no racist right acrobatic [TS]

00:22:40   and I saw a couple people mention that booth babes seemed to be on the decline [TS]

00:22:45   may be all they play listen to our show from last year and got some sense about [TS]

00:22:51   the one of things I was thinking about it would be funny if this was the year [TS]

00:22:56   that Apple actually had a giant booth and just didn't tell anyone like we did [TS]

00:23:03   they kept the Beyonce album a secret let's let's have a huge CES booth this [TS]

00:23:08   year to ensure every year as someone would report some rumor like oh no Apple [TS]

00:23:15   AAPL to give CES keynote [TS]

00:23:18   you know well and it was rampant after they pulled out of Macworld great I mean [TS]

00:23:25   it wasn't even just for the next year although that was one year was at a [TS]

00:23:28   fever pitch but even the next year there was a lot of rumor reporting that Apple [TS]

00:23:33   is going to do it [TS]

00:23:34   keynote in big exhibited yes and it's like now you know there's no way they're [TS]

00:23:41   gonna die from Nvidia's test test outbid them so I did think one of the big [TS]

00:23:47   stories and I don't know maybe the sample sizes too small to really draw a [TS]

00:23:56   conclusion that Apple of course wasn't there [TS]

00:24:00   officially which is not to say that one apple employees there there were you [TS]

00:24:04   know they're always hard to talk to you know component makers and stuff like [TS]

00:24:10   that and someone mentioned in an article [TS]

00:24:13   Apple retail buyers looking at that stuff to sell the stores yeah exactly [TS]

00:24:19   and I'm sure that there are engineers there to just you know just see because [TS]

00:24:24   it's the one thing that the something like CES does it get the entire industry [TS]

00:24:28   altogether and you can see stuff in person and as you know there's there's [TS]

00:24:34   reasons to to be in person you know that the behind the scenes stuff is important [TS]

00:24:39   chauffeur maybe more important but also Microsoft was not there even though they [TS]

00:24:45   you know for years that was CES was sort of their Macworld Expo it was you know [TS]

00:24:50   they were the keynote address the kickoff keynote for ten fifteen years in [TS]

00:24:54   a row dating all the way back to the bill gates era and then all the way [TS]

00:24:58   through most of this bombing but they are not only have dropped out of the [TS]

00:25:02   keynote they had no show Joe for presence at all nor did Google and just [TS]

00:25:10   a throw-in one more north north at Amazon now amazon has either but they do [TS]

00:25:15   make consumer electronics the Kindle line is I think it's impossible to [TS]

00:25:21   dismiss I mean that's the market share stuff I've seen after Christmas for [TS]

00:25:26   tablet use usage clearly puts the candles in second a very strong second [TS]

00:25:31   place in Aus but they were not there either [TS]

00:25:37   and their thing that struck me about all for those companies is that they're us' [TS]

00:25:40   companies and I think that you know unless I'm overlooking somebody tell me [TS]

00:25:44   if I am there are the four big us' consumer electronics companies like [TS]

00:25:51   Google Microsoft and Amazon and none of them were at CES it seems like it's [TS]

00:25:59   almost you know like the big exhibits are all from the agent companies right [TS]

00:26:07   Sony and Samsung LG right that's interesting and I don't know if there is [TS]

00:26:15   a wonder what I wonder why that is [TS]

00:26:17   yeah and I don't know if it's like I said there's only four of them and [TS]

00:26:21   they're all uniquely their own company right i mean Apple's not there just [TS]

00:26:28   because Apple's an American company just Apple and they want to be left alone [TS]

00:26:32   until they're you know have their things to announce [TS]

00:26:35   Amazon's kind of like that to ya even more secretive than Apple in many ways [TS]

00:26:41   yeah definitely Google though I think it's a little you know it seems like [TS]

00:26:46   something they might do you know how big hall and and you know either just to [TS]

00:26:52   promote their like Nexus line of stuff or you know or even have like a kumbaya [TS]

00:26:58   you know look at all you know how about every major Android phone on display at [TS]

00:27:02   one's just you know which they did for at least both years that I was at Mobile [TS]

00:27:09   World Congress in Barcelona they had a the biggest most popular booth with you [TS]

00:27:14   know smooth the people making smoothies and gigantic Android phones and they [TS]

00:27:20   brought out a bunch of Android developers and gave them little booths [TS]

00:27:23   in that kind of stuff and maybe they'll do that again at Mobile World Congress [TS]

00:27:28   this year right that's I don't know if they did it last year I wasn't there [TS]

00:27:32   last year but you know in theory I think of all those companies to that would be [TS]

00:27:38   least surprising if they did have a big CES presence would be Microsoft and who [TS]

00:27:42   will specially Microsoft the new Xbox just came out right tony was gonna be [TS]

00:27:48   there trying Nokia right right maybe and maybe the just the fact that they are in [TS]

00:27:54   the process of tryna by Nokia and the whole CEO turnover thing kept them out [TS]

00:27:59   but that seems weird and I also think that they really want Windows 8 on [TS]

00:28:08   tablets to gain traction I think they will do how could I think I think I [TS]

00:28:16   don't know is it more important than the phone I don't know but both are clearly [TS]

00:28:21   important I mean I think everybody agrees that the group cause of [TS]

00:28:26   Microsoft's [TS]

00:28:27   decline in recent years is that they have no traction in either the phone or [TS]

00:28:33   tablet markets and you know i i almost hesitate to say that once more important [TS]

00:28:38   than the other cuz I think that they sort of go hand in hand and even if [TS]

00:28:45   office and not window is the path forward or even the cloud services or [TS]

00:28:51   whatever that still needs that you know that that's more important for the [TS]

00:28:56   tablets offices not gonna do awesome on Android or something you know what I'm [TS]

00:29:02   gonna take it back I'm gonna say tablets are more important the Microsoft than [TS]

00:29:05   phones because for two reasons for one there's the phones are already a two [TS]

00:29:13   horse race with iOS and Android or iOS has a stronger position at the top end [TS]

00:29:19   of the market and Android has a stronger position as the majority market share [TS]

00:29:26   leader right and has the OEM market sewn up [TS]

00:29:32   whereas tablets I feel like alright iPad is clearly in first place way stronger [TS]

00:29:37   first place then then you know you could argue anybody has in anything other than [TS]

00:29:43   windows in PC market share and second places up for grabs [TS]

00:29:49   right and I think inevitably there there should be some kind of strong second [TS]

00:29:54   place right like you know even if it's really just ends up being the Mac what [TS]

00:30:01   the Mac was two windows at the height of the PC era somebody's gonna have an [TS]

00:30:06   alternative to the iPad and you know you know at least I feel like Microsoft has [TS]

00:30:11   a better chance of making Windows and Windows tablets be that than they do [TS]

00:30:16   putting a serious dent into either iOS or Android on phones so I don't know and [TS]

00:30:21   i also think it's a little bit more what the you know shoring up what they're [TS]

00:30:25   already good at like I feel like tablet sales are coming at the expense mainly [TS]

00:30:29   of Windows laptops else yes so that adds extra urgency and Microsoft count [TS]

00:30:38   started the whole tablets at CES thing I mean if you remember was it two weeks or [TS]

00:30:43   something before Apple you know unveiled the iPhone iPad bomber had that weird HP [TS]

00:30:52   Slate thing right right yeah the bomber keynote @ CES that was like a look [TS]

00:31:01   forward to i you know and I'll say it I regret that I never went during that era [TS]

00:31:06   to see how it's like the Bulls with Jordan now it's too late to take a break [TS]

00:31:12   and we'll get back to that CBS talk but first imma take a break and talk about [TS]

00:31:17   our first sponsor so happy to have him back on the show our friends at talks [TS]

00:31:22   and acts [TS]

00:31:24   talks goes around the world [TS]

00:31:28   selects the best coffee they can find roasted themselves in Los Angeles and [TS]

00:31:34   they ship it out the very next day within 24 hours of roasting so what you [TS]

00:31:39   do you love coffee you sign up for a subscription from talks and every two [TS]

00:31:46   weeks or whatever period you sign up for I'm on a two-week plan they roast fresh [TS]

00:31:51   coffee and within 24 hours they send it to you within a day or two I mean it [TS]

00:31:57   gets to me they always said that in the email when it goes out and gets to me [TS]

00:32:00   even all the way across the country within a day or two usually and it is [TS]

00:32:05   delicious [TS]

00:32:06   it is the best coffee I've ever had but the thing that I love most one of things [TS]

00:32:10   I love most about it is on the sort of person who if I find a coffee that I [TS]

00:32:15   like I just by that coffee over and over and over a week after week after week [TS]

00:32:18   until I get sick of it and tell the stories out of it [TS]

00:32:21   whereas with tongs I'm exposed to coffee of all sorts of righties literally I [TS]

00:32:27   mean anything you can imagine if it's good stuff and it's different [TS]

00:32:32   fresh roasted coffee is just so much better than coffee fining grocery store [TS]

00:32:38   stuff that weeks maybe if you're lucky maybe months ago so much better [TS]

00:32:43   really makes a difference will also have a new thing called the frequency it's [TS]

00:34:12   be true so I anybody out there who got who really likes coffee and and you know [TS]

00:34:17   as it tastes that goes above what you get at Starbucks but if you got you know [TS]

00:34:22   your relatives know you like coffee quote-unquote like coffee and gave you [TS]

00:34:25   Starbucks gift cards for the holidays you haven't used them because you don't [TS]

00:34:29   really go to Starbucks don't from now don't get my go-to talks you can put him [TS]

00:34:33   in there and put all that money into a tank subscription which is fantastic [TS]

00:34:40   that's that's very smart genius absolutely genius I love it so they did [TS]

00:34:46   a thing where they send it out I guess because they've sponsored by show before [TS]

00:34:49   they they sent me a Christmas card holiday card that included a Starbucks [TS]

00:34:54   gift card and there's no explanation I thought it was just sort of a gag I [TS]

00:34:59   tweeted in the city was like the best gag if I got but now knowing that they [TS]

00:35:03   have this promotion I realized it wasn't really a guy go sort of a setup for this [TS]

00:35:08   but anyway [TS]

00:35:08   talks is so great I'm drinking it literally right now [TS]

00:35:12   yeah I think Microsoft should it be [TS]

00:35:17   yeah I think for tablets honestly I think for phones cause honestly I mean [TS]

00:35:22   Nokia it to me they're making to me the second I don't know about this offer but [TS]

00:35:29   they're making to me the second most interesting phone hardware today but [TS]

00:35:36   they're still flailing they're not really gaining traction I don't know [TS]

00:35:40   that their sinking but they're not going to you know and if it's worth microsoft [TS]

00:35:44   money to buy Nokia or at least the handset division I don't know it just [TS]

00:35:48   seems to me like they oughta start on it keep pumping them into the consciousness [TS]

00:35:53   you know keep the pre keep invisible I don't know trade shows are obviously [TS]

00:35:59   very expensive especially I can't even imagine what it costs to have one of [TS]

00:36:04   those flagship exhibits at like a CES for big show like that that's sure to [TS]

00:36:10   millions of dollars yeah it's gotta be you know maybe ten million or something [TS]

00:36:14   on her right but you're talking about a company that spending billions with Abby [TS]

00:36:19   to buy a Nokia right and you know just in general and marketing and all that [TS]

00:36:24   stuff and the cost of losing the windows you know everything they have is [TS]

00:36:31   everything its hundreds of billions of dollars right so close range I just [TS]

00:36:38   can't help but think maybe the the CEO turnover is why they didn't do it just [TS]

00:36:43   to keep you know keep the distractions away but I don't know maybe a sign of [TS]

00:36:50   paralysis especially with that the new Xbox out and trying to build in [TS]

00:36:54   developer ecosystem around that and and you know be part of the all the fork [TS]

00:37:00   ATVs are out you know how cool would it have been to be to be able to play a [TS]

00:37:04   couple Xbox games and one of those things [TS]

00:37:06   there was one article also on the verge about how there's basically no for k [TS]

00:37:13   content to show up except Netflix had some said they were you know being [TS]

00:37:16   demoed on all the new TVs which is smart damn Netflix with a big presence without [TS]

00:37:23   having the big are maybe even any exhibits base themselves Reed Hastings [TS]

00:37:30   was just he was at every single event for anybody related to TV and it seems [TS]

00:37:38   like I would have to say if not the single biggest one of the big you know [TS]

00:37:44   count them on one hand themes of this year's CES was Fourcade TV set [TS]

00:37:50   definitely like you said the big question is will what are you well I've [TS]

00:37:54   actually there's two big questions for 48 TV sets 10 first one is where you [TS]

00:37:59   gonna get for k content because there's no point to it without Forte content and [TS]

00:38:05   so far the answer like you said his Netflix but even there they can't just [TS]

00:38:10   magically make stuff that wasn't shot for KB for K but I know that they're [TS]

00:38:16   going to you know the one thing they can control our their own shows and they [TS]

00:38:20   have in a house of cards which they're going to have available in porque ya [TS]

00:38:25   we're just the new season which starts next month [TS]

00:38:29   yeah couple weeks from now yeah I mean that's that's one of the beauties of [TS]

00:38:35   vertical integration have control over that sort of stuff for kids interesting [TS]

00:38:42   to me I'm kind of impressed by how inexpensive some of the supposedly [TS]

00:38:48   prices are going to be for those things I'm very frightened as to how much worse [TS]

00:38:53   the wire is gonna look it already does now I think I have to rewatch it once [TS]

00:39:00   more before I upgrade TV's or something like that [TS]

00:39:03   I guess it depends what it was shot on maybe the wires soldi I would go where [TS]

00:39:09   it was shot in a look it up this morning it was shot in SDE for by three years [TS]

00:39:14   there will never be an HDD remastering but didn't they should on film [TS]

00:39:22   couldn't they this I don't know the whatever article I read that there's no [TS]

00:39:28   chance to get that to go back in and turn it back into I don't think so D [TS]

00:39:34   you know a lot of the shows during that period like the first few seasons were [TS]

00:39:39   for by three and then you know something like entourage or something like that [TS]

00:39:44   and I think even the Sopranos like the last several seasons for NHD yeah and [TS]

00:39:49   there you know there was a shift and a half way through the wire all everything [TS]

00:39:54   was always St 4343 major disappointment [TS]

00:40:01   yeah it was sort of right at the tail end of that you know where is if you go [TS]

00:40:04   back a little further and you know like one of my favorite shows in the nineties [TS]

00:40:09   was NYPD blue oh yeah great show especially the first few seasons but it [TS]

00:40:17   doesn't break your heart that it that it's 423 standard definition because it [TS]

00:40:22   was the nineties what do you expect where's the wire it just feels like was [TS]

00:40:26   just a few years ago too early [TS]

00:40:31   here's the thing I think the bigger problem facing Fourcade is how many [TS]

00:40:36   people sit have a couch far enough away from their TV and have room for a big [TS]

00:40:42   enough TV or 40 actually looks better right and you get into these arguments [TS]

00:40:46   you know the apples definitions of a Retina display of [TS]

00:40:50   you know its distance from the screen and some math about the pixel size but [TS]

00:40:58   there is a certain point where you can't discern it right and when you went from [TS]

00:41:02   an old 43 standard def glass picture tube TV to a flat screen plasma or LCD [TS]

00:41:11   high-def screen [TS]

00:41:13   you know you unless you had some kind of vision impairment didn't have your [TS]

00:41:17   glasses on everybody had the same reaction which is wow this looks way [TS]

00:41:23   better I don't know that when I first got a HDMI enough talked about on this [TS]

00:41:28   show but I even would watch skiing because it looks so good like this is [TS]

00:41:32   crazy stuff like golf and tennis with these little tiny balls in the air [TS]

00:41:40   hockey was a big one hockey I think God hockey was unwatchable standard def I [TS]

00:41:45   never understood how people could watch hockey you couldn't tracks glowing [TS]

00:41:50   brightly was awful I don't know that for K for most people is going to look [TS]

00:41:58   better and I don't you know i think thats the problem the TV industry TV [TS]

00:42:02   said industry has is everybody spent a lot of money to upgrade and go to high [TS]

00:42:07   death flat panel displays an awful lot of money was spent in what the last [TS]

00:42:14   fifteen years ten fifteen years I got mine nine years ago when I think we [TS]

00:42:20   bought ours [TS]

00:42:21   around the same time I don't know that I think I got mine early 2006 you know and [TS]

00:42:28   I was right as they were getting cheaper lot of people spent a lot of money and I [TS]

00:42:33   still love my 2006 TV I mean really think it looks great [TS]

00:42:39   yes yeah I think it's gonna be one of those things where you know it will just [TS]

00:42:44   gradually replace the HDD components and if you are buying a mid-range and [TS]

00:42:51   high-end TV it will be for k if you're not it'll pry be 1080p [TS]

00:42:56   the way today we still bias 1080 I 720p TV if you wanna spend 300 bucks in [TS]

00:43:03   appearance been seven eight hundred bucks to get 1080p I just don't know [TS]

00:43:08   that it's going to really help the industry you know spur sales I am glad I [TS]

00:43:14   feel like the gun I don't think of the good news to me as someone who really [TS]

00:43:18   despises 3d is that the whole 3d thing which is like what the last two years [TS]

00:43:23   they've they were putting a 3d TV sets and I just man if I could've just faded [TS]

00:43:30   jeans you know to give me a wish and hope that it technology fails it would [TS]

00:43:35   be 3d TVs cause I can't even imagine a world where you know movies are all 3d [TS]

00:43:41   whether you need glasses or not I 3d really gets to me every time I see it I [TS]

00:43:46   should get a happy though that the good guys won on that one yeah I am glad it's [TS]

00:43:50   a technology lose over the course of a few years and and feel good about that [TS]

00:43:56   yeah I feel like common sense prevailed yeah like no we don't want and we [TS]

00:44:00   certainly don't want to work for goggles and dressed up like that and I don't you [TS]

00:44:05   know I think it was not because 3d was a good idea it was because the TV [TS]

00:44:08   manufacturers wanted to sell new TVs to people who already bought flat-panel TVs [TS]

00:44:12   and so i didnt work we're trying to upsell you know the the 3d TVs as being [TS]

00:44:18   significantly more expensive product then right as opposed to four ka which I [TS]

00:44:25   can in theory get behind because more pixels to me is always better and so [TS]

00:44:29   it's definitely you know I'm not it again I'm not a hundred percent sold its [TS]

00:44:33   gonna take off because I don't know that people are gonna be able to discern the [TS]

00:44:36   difference unless they can [TS]

00:44:37   get a big enough you know sixty seventy and screen yeah I don't know about your [TS]

00:44:42   household but I still come home sometimes in and see that the St version [TS]

00:44:47   of channels being watched and that no one could tell the difference I tweeted [TS]

00:44:54   about it over the Christmas break but my wife had like a day where she will like [TS]

00:44:58   Jonas was playing Minecraft and I was working in the office and she just had [TS]

00:45:03   like a relaxing day watching movies and was like three or four of her favorite [TS]

00:45:09   movies that nobody else likes came on like houseguest I hate she loves [TS]

00:45:14   houseguest anytime [TS]

00:45:15   house comes on she watches it's a terrible movie god bless her heart man I [TS]

00:45:20   wish we still have you know that but you know I'd come down to get coffee and [TS]

00:45:28   stuff and every every thing she was watching all day long with standard [TS]

00:45:31   drove me nuts maybe something like that is this better I would pay more money in [TS]

00:45:39   this is stupid because it doesn't make any sense I would pay more money to [TS]

00:45:42   Comcast to just take all the standard channels all of our lineup just get him [TS]

00:45:48   off so that there's nothing we can't watch standard I think if you dig deep [TS]

00:45:53   enough in the settings on your cable box you can override this tea somehow I [TS]

00:45:59   don't know I'm not sure I haven't tried that yet another thing I'm wondering [TS]

00:46:05   about his is the bandwidth though I mean if if fork a video is you know two to [TS]

00:46:11   four times more and with a stream [TS]

00:46:18   properly is it is going to watch Berlin be at what point does time warner cable [TS]

00:46:23   or compuserve however say okay well you hit your 200 gigs limit now now you're [TS]

00:46:29   done right charging you for it right because they're not really all that much [TS]

00:46:35   in favor of you watching TV over IP exactly by which I mean not in favour at [TS]

00:46:40   all [TS]

00:46:41   yeah that's a good question and a fix that no definitely not now with I saw a [TS]

00:46:51   couple reports this week that with compression and I don't know if they're [TS]

00:46:56   using 8265 or or what what the kodak is but that they think like it a lot of the [TS]

00:47:04   net flix stuff because Netflix actually is putting the rubber to the road and [TS]

00:47:08   doing it that it's about fifteen 15 megabits a second something like that is [TS]

00:47:15   what it requires not only I can I run speed test one of my stops working well [TS]

00:47:20   I only get about 20 21 22 down so and i still cant load YouTube videos half the [TS]

00:47:28   time you have 15 under that but it's so much so close to it though that it it [TS]

00:47:33   almost requires optimal optimal good weather just a perfect you know hope [TS]

00:47:40   that my neighbors aren't doing it to ya which is why Netflix actually is at [TS]

00:47:47   least publicly that one of the the fiercest companies in terms of publicly [TS]

00:47:51   praising and and and rating and ranking ISPs in terms of their quality [TS]

00:47:58   kind of interesting and lobbying you know things like [TS]

00:48:01   you know net neutrality and that sort of stuff yeah let me take a break here and [TS]

00:48:07   do second sponsor [TS]

00:48:09   another old friend of the show Squarespace Squarespace you guys know [TS]

00:48:15   they're the all-in-one platform that makes it fast and easy to create your [TS]

00:48:19   own professional website or online portfolio I just a right now you get a [TS]

00:48:26   free trial and 10% off your first purchase by going to square space.com [TS]

00:48:31   and when you sign up there's no special you are I'll just go square space.com [TS]

00:48:35   look and see what they have you want to use offer code Vesper ves P E R and then [TS]

00:48:43   they'll know you came from from this show I I just can't say enough how easy [TS]

00:48:50   is where space is to make your own website and to customize it whether you [TS]

00:48:56   are the sort of person who wants to get in and customize it at the code level [TS]

00:49:01   which you can do even starting with their great selection of templates or if [TS]

00:49:07   you really want to do it or don't even have the know-how to do it at the code [TS]

00:49:11   level want to do it visually through drag and drop it it's not just a hosting [TS]

00:49:17   service it really is a visual design door from making you know controlling [TS]

00:49:23   weight website looks they're constantly improving their platform they have great [TS]

00:49:28   amazing downright amazing tech support that works 24 hours a day seven days a [TS]

00:49:34   week and it starts at just $1 a month and that includes a FREE domain name if [TS]

00:49:40   you sign up for a year or more great temples to choose from [TS]

00:49:45   unbelievably low pricing to start great service and even have stuff like [TS]

00:49:51   e-commerce so you can hook up a store [TS]

00:49:53   and charge money over the internet for your service your products and services [TS]

00:49:57   which is the biggest pain in the ass in the history of of making your own [TS]

00:50:03   website so go to Squarespace dot com and I really really thank them for [TS]

00:50:10   supporting the talk show everybody in a long time listeners of the show know how [TS]

00:50:13   how how much support they've done this way use this code Vesper that's sort of [TS]

00:50:18   an in joke I guess you know that's the way there instead of custom URLs they're [TS]

00:50:23   using the sort of in joke style coupon codes to track it but if you use that [TS]

00:50:29   code when you sign up they'll know you came from here so my thanks to where we [TS]

00:50:37   went retirement as for k bandwidth bandwidth yeah and so Apple's you know [TS]

00:50:46   obviously said not at the show much much rumored to be you know possibly working [TS]

00:50:52   on some kind of new TV thing whether it is a full tv sadder you know big step [TS]

00:50:58   forward and Apple TV I wonder how for k what their stance on that is you know I [TS]

00:51:06   know there's a lot of people who think well that's what I you know people who [TS]

00:51:09   do know that the gene monsters of the world who thinks you know right that's [TS]

00:51:13   what Apple's been waiting for [TS]

00:51:15   right been waiting for for K know about that you know about that at all [TS]

00:51:20   yeah I would I would say no I mean I guess you know personally I have kind of [TS]

00:51:28   been waiting to upgrade my TV in case Apple were to have come out with one by [TS]

00:51:33   now you know when it breaks I'm gonna replace it with whatever South there but [TS]

00:51:39   I could see a lot of people buying an Apple TV because it came out and [TS]

00:51:46   therefore you know if it were for k that's how they would get that's how [TS]

00:51:49   they would justify getting a fork a baby but I think that that's not what's been [TS]

00:51:54   holding them back now and then I also wonder you know because Apple controls a [TS]

00:51:58   lot of the content that comes out of TV because they have [TS]

00:52:01   have you know they they sell and rent movies and TV shows but I honestly [TS]

00:52:05   wonder how how much control they have over getting that stuff in for k format [TS]

00:52:13   I don't think it's any it's not like they've got the original negatives for [TS]

00:52:18   the film's incomes can emit fork a resolution you know it's up to the [TS]

00:52:22   studios to provide you know you know I don't know that that just because you [TS]

00:52:29   know so much of Apple TV content comes from iTunes I don't know that that gives [TS]

00:52:34   Apple much control over getting the iTunes library in the forecast I don't [TS]

00:52:40   know that maybe I'm wrong and how did it work with the hd2 didn't start with two [TS]

00:52:44   separate movies or TV shows and remember don't know that you know it was but it [TS]

00:52:50   wasn't all at once they couldn't [TS]

00:52:52   yeah well obviously they don't they don't make the content so they can just [TS]

00:53:00   go out on their own and do it and it seems like another opportunity for the [TS]

00:53:05   studios to try to get something out of Apple you know before they hand over is [TS]

00:53:10   it even higher res tough especially with that whole ultraviolet they may have on [TS]

00:53:17   their own so yeah and Apple you know big picture is often they'll often make [TS]

00:53:24   great leaps forward with things like being like the retina display on the [TS]

00:53:30   iPhone 4 2010 was a huge leap forward in resolution over every other phone on the [TS]

00:53:36   market [TS]

00:53:38   literally double the resolution in only one dimension as the previous generation [TS]

00:53:43   of iPhones and you know three hundred and some dpi hundred-and-some dpi but [TS]

00:53:51   then ever since they've let it go and now it went from you know and now [TS]

00:53:55   there's other competing phones you know from the Android side that had four [TS]

00:53:59   hundred and some pixels per inch and I feel like with you know with Apple it's [TS]

00:54:04   like they'll make a big leap forward if they think there's a practical reason [TS]

00:54:09   for right and the original iPhone going retina was so clearly oh man this looks [TS]

00:54:15   so much better [TS]

00:54:16   special you know everything look better whereas I feel like going from three [TS]

00:54:19   hundred and some to 400 some dpi on a phone is you're just wasting battery you [TS]

00:54:26   know that it's not working with a horrible Android you are right [TS]

00:54:31   yeah you know see those wonderful Roboto 50 rendered in all their glory and I [TS]

00:54:39   almost think that from an apple perspective that 1080p is that sweet [TS]

00:54:45   spot looks really good and most typical household viewing scenarios you know in [TS]

00:54:57   terms of screen size versus distance from screen [TS]

00:55:03   well this was actually I still think it from this precedent for this to actually [TS]

00:55:08   wrote a story about this for forbes 2006 or 2007 when iTunes first started [TS]

00:55:17   selling movies and Amazon first though it's only movies that they were both [TS]

00:55:22   around the same time and what Amazon did is sold you a major download I wanna say [TS]

00:55:32   two copies of the movie one of them was a really big file and look good on your [TS]

00:55:41   computer and the other was a really small file maybe there was a pilot I [TS]

00:55:45   think Apple did that I seem to remember that maybe Amazon had remember anyway [TS]

00:55:52   alright I'll define the article I think it was able to do that too so anyway but [TS]

00:56:06   it didn't make sense to have a big you know 720p or 1080p file to show on your [TS]

00:56:12   standard death screen made no sense I here's article Apple basically Apple's [TS]

00:56:19   total files size was smaller than Amazon's and the question I you know I [TS]

00:56:24   was writing about was whether yeah Amazon had two files a large version for [TS]

00:56:31   computer and TV and a smaller one for a year like Rio mp3 player something like [TS]

00:56:36   that [TS]

00:56:37   for watching movies on your Galaxy gear yes exactly [TS]

00:56:44   yeah amazonas during 720 pixel within an Apple said DVD quality [TS]

00:56:51   640 pixels anyway the big picture is Apple saying we're okay not having the [TS]

00:56:59   highest resolution possible because there are better tradeoffs like download [TS]

00:57:04   speed that that make this better so I could see the same thing happening here [TS]

00:57:09   where they don't go with the most pixels possible on a TV but instead one that [TS]

00:57:16   will you know kind of hit the sweet spot in terms of bandwidth and content [TS]

00:57:22   library and all that sort of stuff I mean how lame would it be if Apple [TS]

00:57:27   shipped for KTV and literally nothing was was available in 4 case they [TS]

00:57:32   wouldn't even do that everything you have looks like shit on our new TV [TS]

00:57:36   well it would look like 1080p I don't think 1080p is gonna look worse on for [TS]

00:57:40   KTV said you know it's you think so now I don't think so I could be wrong but I [TS]

00:57:44   don't think so yeah well the way that nine retina apps look terrible on a [TS]

00:57:49   Retina screen but may have differences imperceptible from six feet away right [TS]

00:57:56   because if it's because I think it's more like with like the retina MacBook [TS]

00:58:02   Pros where you have those skilled sizes to simulate higher resolutions and they [TS]

00:58:07   still look fine yeah cause you're still only you're talking about pixels that [TS]

00:58:12   are so small even at the simulated size right the simulated pixel is bigger than [TS]

00:58:18   the native pixel of the display but that simulated size is still so small that [TS]

00:58:23   your it looks good your eyes [TS]

00:58:25   whereas when you upscale a non retina iPhone app on retina [TS]

00:58:34   those non-threatening virtual pixels are are big and you didn't see them so I [TS]

00:58:39   nearly certain and I'm sure I hear otherwise from you but I would bet that [TS]

00:58:44   1080p content looks like 1080p content on it this way yet and things like no [TS]

00:58:51   worse than it would on an equivalent size 1080p yep unless you get real close [TS]

00:58:57   which is you know which is not what happens for a TV or monitor that's a [TS]

00:59:03   different story but but what's the point of of power on all those pixels in [TS]

00:59:08   paying for all those pixels to watch 1080p when you could have just spent [TS]

00:59:11   less money on a 1080p native exactly that now there are things like you know [TS]

00:59:18   if if they have a gaming app store you know with vector based gaming artwork [TS]

00:59:23   that does look appreciably different na na na for KTV I don't know I guess what [TS]

00:59:30   to go good to see ya I just don't think to say I don't think four cases that [TS]

00:59:35   factor no I don't think so you know my my my thinking on this and you know just [TS]

00:59:40   from not having any real information but just kind of reading stuff over the [TS]

00:59:44   years is that Apple really wanted to have some sort of subscription service [TS]

00:59:50   that was just dramatically better and more interesting than a cable TV package [TS]

00:59:57   and couldn't get the rights for that and therefore kind of dropped the ball on a [TS]

01:00:02   lot of other stuff I don't know if that's true or not but that's that's the [TS]

01:00:07   perception I have yeah I wanted to how much of it is still fueled by what may [TS]

01:00:16   well just be a throwaway line in the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson [TS]

01:00:25   that that [TS]

01:00:28   somethin somethin bout TV in the job said I've cracked it and that's it yeah [TS]

01:00:33   you know who who even knows what that means I still am still have convinced at [TS]

01:00:42   least if not 51 percent convinced that the Apple TV we have today is the that's [TS]

01:00:48   apples TV plans and that you know they'll just come out you know it's [TS]

01:00:52   getting to the point where it's overdue for a new version but that it's just [TS]

01:00:56   gonna be another $99 box with maybe higher resolution than a better remote [TS]

01:01:00   I've said this so many times I still think it's the most likely scenario for [TS]

01:01:04   how they go forward that they just keep selling $99 set-top boxes and I'm sure [TS]

01:01:10   you know as a company that makes things with screens like I'm sure they've [TS]

01:01:14   tested out computers in every screen size imaginable they already make 30 [TS]

01:01:22   inch display where they did so I'm sure they've tried out TV set or something [TS]

01:01:28   like that but making that in your product as a whole different story I do [TS]

01:01:35   I do I love my apples I find myself using it much more than even I did a [TS]

01:01:42   year ago so I really hope they do more and you know it's one of those things [TS]

01:01:47   where they they had maybe one channel every few weeks you don't notice it but [TS]

01:01:52   if you remember even a year ago they were like you know even fill up the [TS]

01:01:56   first screen and now there's a lot of stuff on there [TS]

01:01:59   yeah I'm not watching but I think they had a pretty good year of adding content [TS]

01:02:04   Apple TV I really do ya think it suggests that maybe they're starting to [TS]

01:02:09   why I had read i think is HBO you know even admitted publicly that they made [TS]

01:02:16   their app themselves so it sounds like Apple has some sort of very simple tool [TS]

01:02:22   kit that they're letting other people use now to make those channels [TS]

01:02:26   yeah that to me could be the you know my best guess for what he meant by a [TS]

01:02:33   cracked it and it's just you know maybe it's some kind of next generation thing [TS]

01:02:38   bluetooth for the remotes and so they maybe you could even have like gaming [TS]

01:02:44   remote and a real App Store SDK and let people just you know put apps on Apple [TS]

01:02:52   TV the same way they do their iPhone and iPad but that would work with any TV [TS]

01:02:58   while IDs or distribute those boxes than a massive IC whenever one of my [TS]

01:03:09   neighbors get City vs massive cardboard box on the site the one TV said at CES [TS]

01:03:16   this year that did get a little bit of my attention [TS]

01:03:19   stood out from the others with LG because they announced one that runs [TS]

01:03:23   webOS which I had forgotten that they'd purchased they like purchased webOS from [TS]

01:03:32   HP what's what's the thinking behind that is just that it's easy to write [TS]

01:03:40   apps for it [TS]

01:03:41   JavaScript I i guess i dont know I mean and it's obviously the original [TS]

01:03:47   the webOS as we knew it from the Palm Pre phone and the telecom the PlayBook [TS]

01:03:56   was a you know i OS style glass touchscreen interface and obviously your [TS]

01:04:03   TV set is not a touch screen but it seems like they kind of kept it you know [TS]

01:04:08   so it's not really webOS as we knew it but its webOS base similar to how you [TS]

01:04:13   know had a low-level technically Apple TV the one you buy today is running iOS [TS]

01:04:17   version of iOS it's just not it's a totally different interface [TS]

01:04:22   yeah I actually did a research report about the various development platforms [TS]

01:04:28   for Smart TVs and it's it's horrible it's WAY worse than Android like it's [TS]

01:04:34   almost every model year has a different SDK and you have to test them like crazy [TS]

01:04:43   it takes months or even years to make it a smart TV app for a lot of [TS]

01:04:47   manufacturing case and there are using different technology and chipsets and [TS]

01:04:53   all this crap and is a lot of low level stuff so it's just a disaster so if [TS]

01:04:57   webOS is like hey just you know HTML and Javascript and you're all set [TS]

01:05:03   that's a huge advantage over whatever you know Visio or Samsung has been [TS]

01:05:09   forcing people to do and I could be a big advantage for Apple because Apple [TS]

01:05:14   not only has tons of developers now you know because obviously I mean I think it [TS]

01:05:22   would be almost shocking if the STK were anything other then Objective C and [TS]

01:05:26   cocoa API's you know but optimized for TV but they also suggest that they have [TS]

01:05:34   developers but that they have i mean let's go all the way back to 1990 and [TS]

01:05:39   say you know 89 and say you know you know go back to next and say they've got [TS]

01:05:47   twenty to twenty-five years of experience making a developer platform [TS]

01:05:52   that evolves over time so that it's not you know it is familiar [TS]

01:05:57   you know if anybody has written an iOS app room a cab the presumed AppleTV SDK [TS]

01:06:02   would be pretty familiar and that as it involves year over year over year it's [TS]

01:06:07   not gonna break it you're over year and that you're writing a nap in 2014 and [TS]

01:06:13   2015 it's going to be broken [TS]

01:06:15   you know it would be stable stable platform that evolves over time which i [TS]

01:06:21   think is a big difference compared to like what you're saying about [TS]

01:06:24   the smart TVs on the market today [TS]

01:06:27   yeah and also a platform that has been smartly designed for that type of [TS]

01:06:35   equipments gonna run on now whereas even even the attempts to kind of shoe horn [TS]

01:06:41   Andhra into it [TS]

01:06:42   TV you know and how well that's working for me and it is this sort of thing [TS]

01:06:49   we're even if they come out with and I think you know obviously it would be the [TS]

01:06:52   thing that would slow adoption the most is if if Apple's Apple TV of the future [TS]

01:06:58   is a whole TV set the whole thing at once you have to buy a new TV said but [TS]

01:07:04   it's all built in I think that would slow adoption because obviously the [TS]

01:07:07   price would be higher and it would rule out anybody who says well I just bought [TS]

01:07:11   a TV X number of years ago replacing it even for a cool one from Apple even if [TS]

01:07:18   you know their market share was very low like 23 percent of the whole USTV market [TS]

01:07:24   that hold 23 percent would be on their app store and even a 23 percent of all [TS]

01:07:30   households clearly I think that would make it the the most popular platform [TS]

01:07:36   for developers already even with just 23 percent market share because the whole [TS]

01:07:41   thing is so fractured especially if they know made it openly the trouble with [TS]

01:07:47   stuff like the Xbox SDK is there still very tightly controlled right right [TS]

01:07:54   that's my biggest [TS]

01:07:55   can't see that being the only way to run Apple TV apps like I could see that [TS]

01:08:00   being the preferred way like maybe the Apple TV has you know you don't need to [TS]

01:08:06   have some sort of other input for the whatever remote control they have or [TS]

01:08:11   something like that but I can't see them forcing you to buy it the whole [TS]

01:08:16   television to yeah I thought the same thing to that even if they come out with [TS]

01:08:20   it he said they'd still have set top boxes that you can put into other TV [TS]

01:08:25   sets but then you get into questions of you know latency and [TS]

01:08:30   and if you have apps that depend upon that the lesser latency of the native [TS]

01:08:36   you know the the whole shebang built into the Apple one by itself how they [TS]

01:08:40   run on the one that sucked up by HDMI has a additional latency or something [TS]

01:08:45   like that I don't know but yeah I agree I don't think that they would do it that [TS]

01:08:51   way did you do you see any any smart watches you like this week [TS]

01:08:57   no not at all although wearables totally seem to be the second big theme of the [TS]

01:09:03   show especially i think i mean it seemed to me from my the coverage I saw sitting [TS]

01:09:12   at home [TS]

01:09:13   wrist wearables some of them watches some of them more like maybe by quantity [TS]

01:09:18   more of them more like a Nike FuelBand like plain band around arrest I got [TS]

01:09:26   people upset I guess when I called out the pedal steel is being ugly horrible [TS]

01:09:32   right I don't like the old Casio watches that my uncle stash had and liked the [TS]

01:09:39   early nineties and you can still buy those that like american apparel and [TS]

01:09:43   it's sort of like american apparel style retro hip like yeah they'll also sell [TS]

01:09:47   you a pair of like you know like the glasses my dad was wearing in 1982 the [TS]

01:09:54   metal bar but it's almost to me it's more almost like a knockoff of those [TS]

01:09:59   Casias just like the integration of the band to the watch face it just seems [TS]

01:10:05   really really clinically done and I I like the first one is born [TS]

01:10:12   I don't have one but I do have one I have so I do have some experience you [TS]

01:10:17   know speaking of it but like I wrote on during fireball least the other one the [TS]

01:10:21   original one to me it's true to itself is it a beautiful watch know but it's [TS]

01:10:28   to me it's no uglier than any other digital watch it's a slightly awkward [TS]

01:10:32   form factor may be but you know it's to support its portrait landscape display [TS]

01:10:40   I'd I think it's a big step backwards in my opinion because I feel like they've [TS]

01:10:46   concentrated like and effectively from everything I've read that like the [TS]

01:10:51   screen resolution is exactly the same the screen technologies the same the [TS]

01:10:54   insides of the same like they they're like effort over the last year has been [TS]

01:10:58   to to to make these met all watches in metal and leather bands as opposed to [TS]

01:11:06   improving the thing that I think they should have been working on which is the [TS]

01:11:08   software and I know they have a 2.0 software release coming to but it it's [TS]

01:11:13   not a better computing device it's just supposedly a better and more attractive [TS]

01:11:18   watch but to me it's not it's really horrid the juju people had spent that [TS]

01:11:25   whole year making the case look better as thats what was gonna make it right [TS]

01:11:30   more competitive against the inevitable iPad right and the thing that got me and [TS]

01:11:34   no offense to the public people and I'm rooting for them I hope pebble becomes a [TS]

01:11:38   long-term success [TS]

01:11:39   terms of you know who I would love to see a power company like people grow and [TS]

01:11:43   become a success I just feel like this generation is a step backwards and that [TS]

01:11:48   they've lost their way they've lost their eyes off the ball [TS]

01:11:54   but they said it a couple came out at CES and said we've made it our watches [TS]

01:11:58   look better and all the tech press was like pebble has made their watches look [TS]

01:12:02   better because that's what they said as opposed to looking at them and the same [TS]

01:12:06   man he's up watches are ugh yeah so here's the next annoying trend for the [TS]

01:12:14   next year maybe forward is tech companies like that the nerdiest of [TS]

01:12:21   nerdy tech companies pretending that that they have friends in the fashion [TS]

01:12:27   industry [TS]

01:12:28   case in point this invitation my wife was a fashion journalists got inviting [TS]

01:12:34   her from Intel to the CES wearable technology briefing for an intimate [TS]

01:12:39   session on what's next for Intel in fashion is the microchip company [TS]

01:12:45   semiconductor company inviting fashion people to hear what they're doing in [TS]

01:12:51   fashion like I can't even imagine how awesome that I think my favorite part of [TS]

01:12:55   that invitation is the word next though there have been previous Intel is [TS]

01:13:02   opposed to Intel's previous forays into fashion when they took pentium three [TS]

01:13:09   chips that failed testing on the assembly line and turn them into [TS]

01:13:12   necklaces when they added YKK zippers to the bunny suit [TS]

01:13:22   yes you know of course Apple to just hired the CEO buries so that's cool but [TS]

01:13:29   you just gonna be on and on and on about it was when I read this department store [TS]

01:13:36   called opening ceremony is doing something with some I don't remember [TS]

01:13:42   some wearable tech stuff all its all this wearable tech stuff we got passion [TS]

01:13:46   people gonna be ok but yeah i feel like i dont know I feel like different people [TS]

01:13:55   obviously have different tastes and of course no doubt zeroed out my mind of [TS]

01:13:59   course there are some people who think the new pub watches look just fine or [TS]

01:14:04   even good course but I think in the mass market I feel very very confident [TS]

01:14:08   betting that they are gonna go over like led balloons and number two they cost [TS]

01:14:14   two hundred and fifty bucks which I know by the standards of like a Rolex or [TS]

01:14:19   something like that is low but that's you know it's probably more than you [TS]

01:14:23   know a lot more than the average person has ever spent much of her life it's [TS]

01:14:28   decent chunk of change in the same amount of money you spend on an iPod or [TS]

01:14:35   something like that and I feel like gets a pass from a lot of the tech either the [TS]

01:14:45   tech crash or Tech fans who read the tech press because they're a little guy [TS]

01:14:50   and there is an upstart but kick-start or success but two hundred and fifty [TS]

01:14:55   bucks is two hundred and fifty bucks and if they're charging $250 for a consumer [TS]

01:15:01   to buy this gadget it should be judged by the same standards as say Apple or [TS]

01:15:07   Amazon Kindle Samsung or anybody it's the same two hundred and fifty bucks and [TS]

01:15:14   you know if Apple came out with a watch that looked like double it it would and [TS]

01:15:20   should cause their stocks to collapse caused like a 50% decrease in the price [TS]

01:15:26   of the stock [TS]

01:15:27   because it would have to make you think that if they came out with a watch it [TS]

01:15:31   and it looked like the double steal I would say the company is doomed and [TS]

01:15:35   every type I was wrong [TS]

01:15:37   steve Jobs was the entire company [TS]

01:15:41   Jony ive is a fraud right and I'm not saying that that means that pebble is [TS]

01:15:46   doomed I just think it means that people still has a lot of work ahead of them to [TS]

01:15:50   get there because you can you can excuse pebble as an upstart for having [TS]

01:15:54   something but I still feel like it's up to the tech press in the critics to call [TS]

01:15:59   it as I see it as it is right yeah it's a you know an early adopter [TS]

01:16:05   nerd nerd toy and that these guys are basically you know a lab upstart cool [TS]

01:16:10   that's awesome but it's being pitched as if it should be a some sort of [TS]

01:16:14   mainstream things right and I don't think it's there and I don't see it I [TS]

01:16:20   think the fitness trackers kind of sort of our if you're into that you know and [TS]

01:16:25   and I was thinking about that this week it never really occurred to me before [TS]

01:16:28   but everybody knows everybody follows the stuff knows that Tim Cook has worn a [TS]

01:16:33   Nike FuelBand for a couple of years at least and is on the board of nineteen [TS]

01:16:40   raid I can't remember any Apple executive publicly using technology from [TS]

01:16:49   any other company ever and I know it now Apple unlike you have a kind of [TS]

01:16:53   relationship and I know that you know like the integration with the iPod but I [TS]

01:16:59   think it's a dangerous you put in your IQ + yeah whatever it's called but [TS]

01:17:04   there's a good thing you can buy to put your sneaker and when they announced it [TS]

01:17:07   I remembered thinking like so is is jobs gonna wear nike sneakers instead of his [TS]

01:17:12   new balance and he did like the one event he had like a pair of Nikes on [TS]

01:17:15   so it's not any way back [TS]

01:17:19   yeah just for that event but I i and I always wonder about that like if you [TS]

01:17:25   know and I think about some of the stupidest things because I feel like [TS]

01:17:28   nobody else I'd love to get the story on that like did somebody have to go up to [TS]

01:17:32   Steve Jobs and say hey Steve better if you were apparent nike's and like what [TS]

01:17:38   was his reaction or what did Jobs himself say give me apparently keys to [TS]

01:17:41   wear for this thing yeah did he did with them I don't remember exactly how it [TS]

01:17:46   went but it was a member I don't know was a long time ago guess it was like 90 [TS]

01:17:53   are 2005 2004 2005 but I can you know after that is jobs was on stage wearing [TS]

01:18:05   Nike shoes and he certainly did you know obviously the Nike shoes Nike tractor [TS]

01:18:10   and I can't remember anybody else wearing a sonata fitness hobbyist no I [TS]

01:18:20   don't think so but it looks like he's a jock yes if not a jockey's like Tiger [TS]

01:18:30   basically mound bayou and stuff like that definitely fitness efficient and [TS]

01:18:39   like you said he's on a keyboard yes which has always been weird to me [TS]

01:18:43   recently I guess he pulling an Eric Schmidt I don't know and it's it would [TS]

01:18:48   seem the extraordinarily out of character for him to pull in Nike Eric [TS]

01:18:52   Schmidt yeah which would be to unveil like a Nike Plus Nike FuelBand killer [TS]

01:18:58   yes Apple gas gas water whatever right gasped and it's not just because he's on [TS]

01:19:05   the board and you know and that he wears one but they they even specifically [TS]

01:19:10   called out Nike when they announced the iPhone 5 ass with the m7 co-processor [TS]

01:19:20   you know in that it's not just for the iPhone used but third party apps can tap [TS]

01:19:24   into it and at night he was the one that called out you know an app has shipped [TS]

01:19:29   and at night he has an app that can use the data from you know that they've [TS]

01:19:33   they've Apple stance on that is sort of been that you know that is therefore [TS]

01:19:38   everybody's not just then yes and I where they work together on something [TS]

01:19:47   like that [TS]

01:19:48   well i gonna make shoes shoes for something then we're a mean wearable [TS]

01:19:55   stuff definitely me as technology has everything shrinks you know everything [TS]

01:20:01   from cameras to two batteries to the CPUs mean wearable is obviously have no [TS]

01:20:07   future directions for computers but what are they gonna do write what you know [TS]

01:20:13   put it in Clayton Christensen's did you [TS]

01:20:17   terms with what's the job to be done what are you hiring these wearable [TS]

01:20:22   devices to do and it seems like the one thing that's been a success so far is [TS]

01:20:27   stuff like the FuelBand and fit debt where you're hiring these devices to [TS]

01:20:31   track what you've done all day and tell you how far you've gone and you know to [TS]

01:20:36   help you track your goals for burning calories throughout the day but that's a [TS]

01:20:40   niche and I feel like it's already being satisfied that you like anybody who just [TS]

01:20:44   wants to know how far they walked in how many stairs they've climbed you can [TS]

01:20:50   already buy a device at a reasonable price that works really well and [TS]

01:20:56   integrates you know with your computer so you can store the data and stuff like [TS]

01:21:00   that I don't have any building it into the iPhone right [TS]

01:21:06   chips already built into the iPhone you know and [TS]

01:21:10   I just don't see that as a market that's ripe for disruption right just doesn't [TS]

01:21:16   seem like there's any kind of problem with those devices if all you want to do [TS]

01:21:20   is track fitness their day seemed to work really well and be pretty elegant [TS]

01:21:24   as opposed to the pre iPhone smartphone market which was a mass and the phone [TS]

01:21:30   said terrible interfaces and confusing and you know everybody you know how to [TS]

01:21:36   use their phones and it was just right for something like that fun to come in I [TS]

01:21:41   just don't see that in the fitness tracking now time to say again Apple [TS]

01:21:45   shirley is working on wearable stuff tiny little things but I don't think of [TS]

01:21:49   fitness tracker is that yes could be something that does fitness tracking as [TS]

01:21:55   part of a dozen other things but that's not at the device just as you know i pod [TS]

01:22:03   is also a nap but whatever the music you know the way so yeah I don't know and [TS]

01:22:09   you know what is the job hiring it for ya I don't know I feel like that is just [TS]

01:22:15   it was not answered by anybody at CES I didn't see anything that makes me think [TS]

01:22:19   wow that's that's kind of important step forward i guess i another thing I was [TS]

01:22:24   did you see that the wearable thing that record audio around you [TS]

01:22:29   for ninety minutes on Hulu percent ninety seconds yet sixty 60 second [TS]

01:22:35   continuing forget the name of it s on the verge quarter yeah something it's [TS]

01:22:42   interesting because I do feel like that's that's inevitably where some of [TS]

01:22:45   this stuff is going right the ideas you got sixty seconds of recording at all [TS]

01:22:50   times and it just drops off at 61 seconds ago just dropped off at the end [TS]

01:22:55   of the buffer but then if something has happened within the last minute that you [TS]

01:22:59   want to save you hit a button and it saves that audio so if you know [TS]

01:23:05   you know it's the audio equivalent of capturing that photo that you're [TS]

01:23:12   watching happen as you take your phone idea pocket and I remember I forget who [TS]

01:23:16   linked to a bit late one of the questions on the website is is it legal [TS]

01:23:21   which is half funny in the creepy Shenzhen have sort of you know we're [TS]

01:23:26   gonna have to face this because just think like if you just go for it [TS]

01:23:30   ten years is probably even too much but ten years from now the storage on our [TS]

01:23:37   phone size devices is gonna be so much bigger and hopefully battery life will [TS]

01:23:45   be so much better at doing something like recording a 60 minute buffer of [TS]

01:23:50   audio you know would not strain the device at all and so why not like how do [TS]

01:23:54   you know if somebody isn't recording it and you know and and project forward [TS]

01:23:59   with something like Google glass that people wear on my glasses with a much [TS]

01:24:03   smaller camera and heads up display so that it you don't see it [TS]

01:24:09   per say you know what happens if you can't see the camerons somebody's [TS]

01:24:12   glasses you have no way to distinguish between someone who's wearing non smart [TS]

01:24:19   glasses and regular glasses and it has the storage that it can just or a 60 [TS]

01:24:25   minute buffer at all times so that you don't have to record in advance you [TS]

01:24:28   can't just decide hey this last five minutes has been sensational you know I [TS]

01:24:32   just saw I don't know cab burst into flames on the street I've got footage of [TS]

01:24:37   it I didn't remember to hit record but I can't just say right now they say the [TS]

01:24:41   last five minutes [TS]

01:24:42   yeah I just got into a really great argument with the drunk guy I wish I [TS]

01:24:46   could post that to SoundCloud or something I'm not entirely comfortable [TS]

01:24:50   about that I don't think it's a great idea but I I am it's happening right now [TS]

01:24:55   you know exactly exactly that's my main point where it's going to be so we kind [TS]

01:25:01   of have to come to grips with ya and figure out how you know what's going to [TS]

01:25:05   be considered acceptable [TS]

01:25:07   and for better and worse like all those Russian dash cam video of my life so you [TS]

01:25:15   know this is absolutely an upside to this is not a separate device but it's [TS]

01:25:22   it's an app on my Apple you know whatever it now I guess that's probably [TS]

01:25:27   the best in a in in a weird way those Russian dash cams which apparently [TS]

01:25:32   everybody gets you have to have your insurance even mandates it in russia [TS]

01:25:36   because something like so much insurance fraud problems in russia and in car [TS]

01:25:43   insurance that everybody has these always on dash cams they're always [TS]

01:25:47   recording when your cars on and so yes you said your YouTube is just fall of [TS]

01:25:53   all sorts of fantastic footage that never would have been captured before [TS]

01:25:57   it's almost like thats the canary in the coalmine like the future of everything I [TS]

01:26:03   get some point everything will be like Russian Tascam everything that happens [TS]

01:26:07   will be if it if it was all wish we could put that on YouTube you'll have it [TS]

01:26:10   to put on YouTube shifted you see that the plane crash today did you know some [TS]

01:26:15   some guy had his GoPro camera on while he was in a plane crash in you know [TS]

01:26:22   survived but there's a YouTube video [TS]

01:26:25   yeah it was maybe you played but when I was looking at Twitter this morning it's [TS]

01:26:33   whatever it was [TS]

01:26:34   retweeting [TS]

01:26:35   the act crazy you know that's the new normal is that that everything is [TS]

01:26:39   recorded so even scary stuff will be able to see generally see a lot in that [TS]

01:26:46   direction at CES I kind of was wondering if we were gonna see a bunch of Google [TS]

01:26:54   class sort of you know heads up display type things and didn't see anybody had [TS]

01:27:03   anything like that [TS]

01:27:04   gonna sell one but it was just very you know even more primitive than Google [TS]

01:27:11   glass was almost more like an oculus rift [TS]

01:27:15   yeah like big and I saw somebody else had one it was meant for safety workers [TS]

01:27:23   it was a safety glasses with a built-in heads up display and you know which i [TS]

01:27:30   think is a fine idea somebody on Twitter you know I think something like safety [TS]

01:27:39   glasses with a built-in heads up display well that's great because if you're [TS]

01:27:43   already wearing safety glasses you're not concerned about you know fashion at [TS]

01:27:47   all it's a practical you know you're in a practical situation so why not have a [TS]

01:27:52   heads up display if you could help you you know in terms of you know doing the [TS]

01:27:56   job that you're doing they have the safety glasses on in the first place [TS]

01:28:00   right if you're like a chemist or something like that you can have you [TS]

01:28:05   know by step instructions for the expression workers something building a [TS]

01:28:11   building in your own it [TS]

01:28:12   reference the plans right or consult about the supplies you know do I need [TS]

01:28:17   the IKEA instructions right but it would be cool if you're a construction worker [TS]

01:28:25   and you need more I don't know now that you bring it up on their heads up [TS]

01:28:31   display you know use gestures or buttons on the side and and and then have them [TS]

01:28:36   sent up to you or something like that without having to you know take a phone [TS]

01:28:41   out of your pocket or something like that would be great [TS]

01:28:44   by and see anything like that now and that's one of those things where you [TS]

01:28:51   know maybe they're they're hiding in the corner but no one now posted I don't [TS]

01:28:56   know someday I'll have to get out there and find the words let me take one last [TS]

01:29:01   break here and thank our third sponsor before we finish up the show and our [TS]

01:29:05   third sponsor and its a trifecta longtime sponsors of the show is our [TS]

01:29:12   friends at an event apart an Event Apart is the conference for web and designers [TS]

01:29:21   for people who make websites it's an intensely education to Dale earnings [TS]

01:29:27   session for passionate practitioners of standards-based web design it was [TS]

01:29:34   founded by web visionaries Eric Meyer Jeffrey zelman jeffries opens name is [TS]

01:29:40   all over the web standards movement the before and after of what it was like to [TS]

01:29:45   make websites from the web standards movement started is like night and day [TS]

01:29:49   like not to interrupt or be dramatic but his book literally changed my life [TS]

01:29:55   the orange one yep Yeah Yeah right now [TS]

01:29:59   yeah [TS]

01:29:59   yeah [TS]

01:30:00   what we want is that when did that come out probably I don't know I bought it in [TS]

01:30:03   like 2004 so and just learning web standards like can completely change the [TS]

01:30:11   way I made websites I wondered to honestly I know again sound like [TS]

01:30:15   hyperbole i general genuinely wonder whether CSS ever would have made it as a [TS]

01:30:20   mainstream technology without Eric Meyer because Eric Meyer he made it [TS]

01:30:26   understandable you know it's a weird a weird way to specify styles and it was [TS]

01:30:30   really weird compare was weird compared to what we did before CSS on the web and [TS]

01:30:35   it was very weird compared to what designers were used to in the print [TS]

01:30:38   world and Eric Meyer really help make that understandable where the two guys [TS]

01:30:42   are started an Event Apart they're not the only speakers at the whole great [TS]

01:30:46   lineup of speakers and also the only thing that really set an Event Apart [TS]

01:30:51   about is that it's not just want to hear it [TS]

01:30:55   tours and it comes to you effectively they have upcoming events in Atlanta [TS]

01:31:03   Seattle Boston San Diego washingtonDC and Chicago and I think that only runs [TS]

01:31:12   through August adding you go further I think there's one in Austin coming up [TS]

01:31:17   San Francisco check the website you'll find one near you for the coming year [TS]

01:31:21   I've been to an Event Apart several times i three or four times and it's [TS]

01:31:27   always great it's always knew every year the speakers are always on the cutting [TS]

01:31:32   edge and stuff all sorts of new stuff like stuff that we take for granted [TS]

01:31:37   maybe even today like responsive web design where you make one design that [TS]

01:31:44   scales to go from everywhere from a 3.5 inch iPhone to a 27 inch iMac [TS]

01:31:50   came on stage at an event part go to an event and Event Apart dot com to find [TS]

01:32:00   out more [TS]

01:32:01   to find out the the dates and locations where they're coming and if you use this [TS]

01:32:06   URL and Event Apart dot com slash talk show just talk show know that I don't [TS]

01:32:15   know you came from here and you can try and cities schedules tickets and more [TS]

01:32:19   can't recommend it enough great great conference and anybody who build [TS]

01:32:24   websites if you you owe it to yourself to go so what a CSCS I guess the only [TS]

01:32:33   other big thing I saw was that there's a lot of car companies who are there yeah [TS]

01:32:40   I know I wonder if there i mean you know I guess they they want to be considered [TS]

01:32:46   consumer electronics as well and it's really hard for him because I've never [TS]

01:32:53   owned a car so I don't really know I got member when cars got CD players in our [TS]

01:32:59   school and now I get in the cabin they have the name of the song that's playing [TS]

01:33:03   and i'm just still another did that on the radio [TS]

01:33:08   piano you know and Ford and Microsoft I guess have that kind of alliance [TS]

01:33:14   yeah and and there was something that already in Android but it didn't seem [TS]

01:33:20   like it was a lot more hyped before CES than when the show came in land in terms [TS]

01:33:25   of anything that was actually announced yeah just seems so so forced I'm still [TS]

01:33:35   waiting for to see how the announced back at WWDC but still you know it seems [TS]

01:33:42   like the cards are gonna come out until later this year how this iOS in the car [TS]

01:33:46   turns out which is more or less [TS]

01:33:50   a way to let you use your iPhone presumably but I work with iPads too but [TS]

01:33:55   you bring your iPad or iPhone to your cart plug it in and then the UI of your [TS]

01:34:01   car is driven by iOS I don't know you know I have so many questions about that [TS]

01:34:08   I feel like you know they did just kind of threw up a bunch of you know here's [TS]

01:34:11   the car companies who have got on board so far and in theory it sounds great and [TS]

01:34:16   one of the things that sounds great about it is that rather than build say [TS]

01:34:20   build Android 4.3 into the dash of your car but then you keep your car for 10 [TS]

01:34:26   years and ten years from now you're running an old version of Android if it [TS]

01:34:29   was forward-thinking enough and it was just you plug your phone and then when [TS]

01:34:33   you get a new phone and your to your car get smarter to ya you get new stuff and [TS]

01:34:39   you keep going forward and a new OS and perhaps and all that stuff you know like [TS]

01:34:46   in the same way that Steve Jobs on stage seven years ago the original iPhone [TS]

01:34:51   introductions saying let's get rid of all these little plastic buttons on [TS]

01:34:55   these phones because you can't change them over time and if you come up with a [TS]

01:34:58   new idea in six months you can't add a new button joystick or whatever to do it [TS]

01:35:03   let's make it all software I feel like that same sort of logic applies to let's [TS]

01:35:08   let the brains of the car's computer be your phone because you're gonna upgrade [TS]

01:35:13   your phone a lot more fruit most people at least are going to upgrade the phone [TS]

01:35:16   a lot more frequently than their car unless you leave to get people who [TS]

01:35:21   attended you know maybe upgrade on the phone like cycle but people who buy [TS]

01:35:27   their card oh yeah and I saw actually really interesting chart on Twitter [TS]

01:35:31   today which is like how people commute and I have something like seventy [TS]

01:35:35   percent of people commute in a car by themselves so it actually is like a real [TS]

01:35:42   abuse case and a real market there's no millions billions I guess about hours a [TS]

01:35:48   year or so far commute so that's certainly a market for audio apps audio [TS]

01:35:57   advertising [TS]

01:36:00   I don't think games are or video really well I guess for the backseat well it's [TS]

01:36:05   about attention right i mean the quote-unquote attention economy which is [TS]

01:36:10   sort of us sounds like a buzzword but I think it's an important really is an [TS]

01:36:15   important component of understanding the whole you know computer industry today I [TS]

01:36:22   mean that computers / entertainment industry is that all sorts of things are [TS]

01:36:27   constantly in flux except for the fact that we only have 24 hours a day right [TS]

01:36:33   everybody only has so much attention and it's it's become them you know it's a [TS]

01:36:38   limited resource and you know the supply is constant and the demand is ever [TS]

01:36:46   growing or I guess the supply of potential I guess it's that I guess on [TS]

01:36:51   the supply demand curve the demand is constant because we each only have so [TS]

01:36:56   much attention to give but the supply of what we could give it to his infant and [TS]

01:37:03   has been mostly you know dominated by terrestrial radio forever basically [TS]

01:37:10   right and even you know what's the bigger change in recent years has been [TS]

01:37:15   satellite radio which is just terrestrial radio better using a [TS]

01:37:22   different distribution technology it's far closer to terrestrial radio in terms [TS]

01:37:28   of experience and content than the internet or anything exciting [TS]

01:37:34   interactive [TS]

01:37:35   yeah I think it's interesting I bet this one of those things where just to get [TS]

01:37:39   this technology in the car probably has at least a two year maybe three year [TS]

01:37:45   lead time so that's probably part of the answer as to why it's one of those [TS]

01:37:51   things that they cannot mention quickly and then hope you don't think too much [TS]

01:37:55   about unless your gonna be developing for that sort of thing but once it's in [TS]

01:38:01   there if it is modular if it's something that you know your phone is powering [TS]

01:38:05   kinda like a real a real use case for the Palm folio maybe but there really is [TS]

01:38:13   built into a car it actually makes sense but I you know I think like your said [TS]

01:38:18   wait with that statistic we're seventy percent probably the Americans got it [TS]

01:38:21   camp you i think i mean america's clearly skewed in that direction of you [TS]

01:38:28   know solo commuters in a car but you know certainly it's no certainly not [TS]

01:38:35   unique I mean there's you know people who drive to work all over the world but [TS]

01:38:41   if you can get them to shift their keep me from being bored to death while I do [TS]

01:38:46   this for an hour or two hours or in I'm know there's all sorts of statistics on [TS]

01:38:52   the number of people who have like two hour plus commute day and shift that [TS]

01:38:57   keep me from going insane from the radio whether it's stressful or satellite and [TS]

01:39:05   switch that to iOS or Android you know any other platform boy that's a huge [TS]

01:39:09   opportunity like to suddenly have two more hours [TS]

01:39:13   somebody's attention today going into the you know app economy and economy [TS]

01:39:20   yeah and you know I guess the early adopters are the new york city cabbies [TS]

01:39:25   who have chat lines that they're on all day just kind of interesting you know [TS]

01:39:31   that's not really a mainstream thing but [TS]

01:39:34   that that's certainly one thing that could be more easily done with some sort [TS]

01:39:39   of a platform in your car [TS]

01:39:41   yeah I I have no doubt in my mind I mean I haven't done any I haven't conducted a [TS]

01:39:46   survey maybe I should I don't know but there's no doubt in my mind that the [TS]

01:39:49   whole rise in podcasting as a popular and you know something I can actually be [TS]

01:39:57   a business is a large part driven by commuters definitely I mean I don't [TS]

01:40:03   commute so I i listen too far fewer podcasts then most people who listen to [TS]

01:40:09   the show but I think back to the years when I did and then this is the thing [TS]

01:40:14   we're done the matter if you're in a car and I mean people on you know who walked [TS]

01:40:18   a worker it take a subway to work or anything like that any kind of public [TS]

01:40:21   transportation [TS]

01:40:22   you know you can listen to podcasts and I was no doubt in my mind that it [TS]

01:40:26   commuting is the attention fuel behind podcasting as a business [TS]

01:40:34   yeah I think that I'll be definitely one of the the home screen apps on whatever [TS]

01:40:40   that UI looks but I think it wouldn't it be great if forecasts or whatever it's [TS]

01:40:45   going to be great to get your yes under cats Marcos podcast app overcast [TS]

01:40:54   overcast yeah that would be great if your podcast that were on your phone [TS]

01:41:05   whereas natively accessible in the car as turning on the radio right that's to [TS]

01:41:12   me is what this iOS in the car hopefully is getting out where you don't it's not [TS]

01:41:16   like you're sitting there fiddling with cable connectors and a phone interface [TS]

01:41:21   that isn't really meant to be used while you're in the car you know when you want [TS]

01:41:25   to turn on the radio you just punch about right and then the station you [TS]

01:41:29   twisted dial [TS]

01:41:30   will not be great if you can pick through your podcast that easily and [TS]

01:41:34   that drives me nuts that Siri doesn't understand the concept of a podcast they [TS]

01:41:40   have I say play the latest episode of the talk show even in the native pride [TS]

01:41:45   cast at ya boy would be great if you get Siri you know in this opens up a whole [TS]

01:41:53   show about you know Syrian third party apps but boy wouldn't it be great if you [TS]

01:41:58   know every podcast app could just provide series with a look here's a [TS]

01:42:03   structured data in the format you want here's the content I have to offer and [TS]

01:42:08   so that the person can say way the newest episode of the talks so talk show [TS]

01:42:15   in overcast and where I left off listening to headphones iCloud knows [TS]

01:42:21   well I guess that would be up to each app but I think it their own way even [TS]

01:42:27   when podcast were part of the iTunes App you know the music app ipod whatever is [TS]

01:42:33   called it still couldn't couldn't handle it can do songs albums and all that kind [TS]

01:42:38   of stuff but can't can't handle podcast right I hope that's the other thing to [TS]

01:42:44   me is clearly the future of entertainment in your car if if not the [TS]

01:42:48   present right from sure there's a lot of people it's already the present but the [TS]

01:42:51   future of entertainment in your car it's not FM radio and I thinks that satellite [TS]

01:42:58   radio temporary cluj [TS]

01:43:01   howard stern it's casting its its cellular IP right and why pay for some [TS]

01:43:11   kind of cellular IP built into the car when you've already got your phone with [TS]

01:43:14   you every single time you step into the car and your car has plenty of energy to [TS]

01:43:20   bear to keep your phone charged while you use it you know so hopefully that's [TS]

01:43:27   the future but there didn't seem to be any kind of major progress on that front [TS]

01:43:31   at CES I was curious whether anybody was going to come out with something [TS]

01:43:36   compelling before Apple does and it doesn't seem like that happen but maybe [TS]

01:43:43   maybe that's the wrong venue for another 90 yeah maybe you know you never know [TS]

01:43:47   but you know but then why else would all these people be a show or something like [TS]

01:43:52   that I don't know Detroit car show or something anything else good that's [TS]

01:44:02   about it so next year we're going to Vegas we have two yeah let's do it got [TS]
