Apple recruits superstar DJ to drop some Beats in CNET UK podcast 422
Hello and welcome.
You're listening to CNET UK podcast.
This is episode 422 for Friday the 20th of February, 2015.
Apple has recruited a super star DJ.
Samsung is hinting at the S6 and scientists have proposed a. A tenth of a chip that would give you Terminator vision.
I'm Rich Trenholm, and joining me in our high tech London studio this week is Luke Westaway.
I am sort of like the Terminator.
In many ways, yeah.
I absolutely will not stop.
[LAUGH] That is so true.
And you always say you'll be back.
[CROSSTALK] That's a disappointment.
I'll be back, no, no hurry.
We have as always in the podcast so check it out on CNet.com or YouTube.com/CNet.
So for now let's start with the news.
Yes, big news in the music world.
Apple has hired Zane Lowe, the well know, probably one of the best known.
Names in british radio, in fact
Yes, I would say so.
Kiwi Lowe has been at the BBC for decade, before that he was he worked at MTV.
Remember on the MTV2 Brown Couch?
That's actually all I remember him from.
He sat on the sofa bands would come up, also sit on the sofa.
Great format for an interview.
We should have a sofa!
We should have a sofa and a green screen so it looks.
Looks like we're flying through space.
People have said that before, actually, about the whole sitting down.
Did we decide where we're standing up last week [UNKNOWN] there was a reason.
[CROSSTALK] Sitting kills you, that's why.
Well, anyway, yes.
So, he's, he's left the BBC, he's going off to work for Apple.
I mean, he's best known as a DJ, but he's also known, he's very influential music industry figure, which is, presumably, Apple's thinking in this.
He's been a kind of music director for the international festival Beat the Rocks.
He, he's, written and produced for, Tiny Tempah, Jason.
And he also co-wrote and produced a track on Sam Smith's album, which is Grammy nominated, so he was over at [UNKNOWN] the Grammys-
So presumably, he's going to be doing something related to beats and iTunes.
So, do we know anything about what his actual job will be?
No, no, not really.
I mean, so, the, the statement Apple has given is that ,. They are excited to have him join the music team, because he's one of the foremost music taste-makers in the world, and a legendary music curator.
So there you go.
He, he will presumably have some hand in curating music.
[LAUGH] Glad that's cleared up.
Curate is probably the key word there, right?
Because, if they, they're rumored to be making.
A music service.
Music services need curation.
Because rock and roll isn't all jumping around in a hotel room-
And throwing a fridge out the window.
Careful curation, indexed curation.
That's the spirit of rock and roll.
So what are our readers, listeners, and viewers saying?
Well one commenter on the story says, this isn't a real diversion to the man's career, but it makes sense.
It's nothing to do with musical talent or insight.
He doesn't have any.
And I K Rup says I'm sure this is Ivine's doing.
You remember he is the man who's, along with Dr. Dre in charge of beats.
That's probably his job at Apple advising Cook to hire the top talents in the music business.
I don't know what is going on here, but it looks big.
Something really special is coming in town for the new music service.
That's where all the clues are pointing.
What could it be?
What could it be?
What could it be?
What could it be?
Well, well that's part of the news we're going to find out soon.
We have no idea.
Or, or even if there is anything.
They might just be collecting all the musicians.
[LAUGH] Starting with Dane Low, I mean.
Starting with Dane Low.
What list has Dane Low at number one?
Start at the bottom, work your way up to the top.
Which is the Sugar Babes.
Yeah, that's what we're working up to.
Yeah, the, not the original.
Get the original Atomic Impact back together.
If you can Apple.
Go for it.
I think even Apple's budget stretches that far.
What else is happening?
What's happening is that Samsung has been hinting at some features for the Samsung Galaxy S6.
Which as we are all marking our calendars is coming out.
We are always.
Certainly would be announced on the first of March.
And cause what they've done is they've they've done this blog post about, wireless charging of of mobile phones and other devices.
And they've said that 2015 is going to be the year of of mob, of wireless charging.
Which suggests that the S6, that their big flagship phone will, presumably, have some kind of wireless charging,
To it, so that's, that's kind of interesting.
And it, the thing is about while it's charging we talked about [INAUDIBLE] recently with Starbucks but it, there's two competing standards.
There's the PMA and A4WP which use power maps.
And then there's the keystone that, which is backed by the wise power consortium and that's used by Aces, HTZ, YOA.
LG, Motorola [UNKNOWN] and Sony.
Is Motorola pronounced Chi?
It is pronounced Chi.
I always say it wrong but I do know.
Well maybe you, you said it wrong I could never remember.
Who knows, who knows.
So anyway, yes that's the one that has got most of the phones companies backing them so presuming that's going to be the standard.
But for some reason the other one's holding out.
But yeah, there's a possibility that the F6 mic should be dual standard [CROSSTALK].
Well, that would be cool.
If you, yeah, if you read between the lines-
Well, wireless charging is, is really cool.
But normally, people are sort of taking it up.
Would be very, very neat.
Cuz it's been a barrier, hasn't it?
The multiple stands is a bit of a problem.
Starbucks got around that.
We talked about this a few weeks ago.
Because Starbucks is putting in some of its London coffee outlets.
Like little dangles you can plug into your phone
Which makes a wireless charge when you plonk them down on the, on the table.
On a wireless charging pad.
So I thought they get around the standards problem.
Starbucks, very elegantly, got around the problems of wireless charging by making it not wireless.
Well, but they're doing their best in a crazy, crazy world.
They're making their way.
But we should see more about, the S6.
At Mobile World Congress.
Which starts at the end of next week.
Isn't it amazing that
MWC is coming around and it was at, Mobile World Congress Rich
That we discovered that while it's charging sounds like a double barreled surname.
[INAUDIBLE] charging here.
What a, yeah.
Lost something, at that trade show, yeah.
Little window into what it's like.
Well, first of March is when the S6 will come out, and we're gonna be at the launch so look out for photos, videos, hands-on, first impressions, all that good stuff.
All the good stuff.
So so yeah.
You wanna know what the people are saying?
Comments, tell us, hit me with what people are saying.
Okay, well, Davidjo723 says glad to see some improvements in wireless charging namely the inclusion of all the standards in a single device.
This commenter goes on to say, I love taking advantage of this with my current phone and I can't remember the last time I actually plugged it into charge.
It's not the most important feature on my phone, but it certainly is nice to have.
It, it is a good idea and it does give you the potential to, to charge your phone anywhere.
As long as they have it.
It, it's pretty cool.
Meanwhile O Q one underscore Lee says, I've owned a Samsung smartphone, laptop, tablet and a few other things.
Nothing ever works as advertised and we'll never buy another Samsung product again.
I stopped using the laptop after two days it was so bad.
[LAUGH] Similar to Samsung's previous features, fingerprints sensor, heart rate sensor, eye tracking, etc.
I'm sure that while it's charging.
Will also not work.
That, though, that's funny because the the eye tracking, do you remember when we heard about that before the phone came out, whichever one it was.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I think it was the X4?
Smarts day, smarts.
Or whatever it is.
But it was like, you can control this phone with your eyes.
And then it came out and does anyone use that?
I don't know.
I'm not sure that would be-
Well, the problem is that you, you can sort of control it with your eyes.
[LAUGH] It does kind of work, but that you really need your eyes to look, to- for looking.
But that's the thing, it's one of those, it's one of those features that, you just turn off immediately.
And it - -
because it doesn't work most of the time, and then it does it when you don't want it to.
Got game, one two one two finally-
Oh, we've got game.
One two, one two one two.
Oh, I thought it was a different card game.
Yeah, no it's.
Not one of the other, at least, 1,211 card games.
Says I'm all for wireless charging and appreciate Samsung uses Beats testing the technology for Apple iPhone users.
Oh, a oh, there it is.
Like, so you'll maybe be in a comedy.
Go in a hat.
One two, one two.
Has raised some important and thought-provoking points.
And he's holding a mirror to our own assumptions.
Hate to be the one to say it but, yeah.
It probably, like, for a while is charging to really takeoff and
And it's, it's probably gonna be an iPhone.
Because that, that's what's gonna make like be, you know, like everyone sort of rush to get it into their tax season buses and stuff.
Not because the iPhone is necessarily better but it is
It's just sort of, it's the one that's got the impact.
Exactly, yeah, yeah.
I see, yeah.
And also, it's better.
[LAUGH] I'm only kidding.
Yeah, so, also happening this, well very soon, is sort of speaking of like new, weird, newfangled features and stuff.
That was an awkward segue but I'm gonna come to the right and power through.
Sony's version of Google Glass.
I hate Google Glass because we have to say it.
Goo, Google Glass.
[CROSSTALK] Anyone would think we were drunk, which, we're not categorically denying, we're definitely not drunk.
Ignore the fact that I'm drinking from a mug that obscures what you can actually see.
No, it's just water.
I'm just drinking straight gin.
yeah, no, the, the Sony smart eyeglass developer edition SED-E1 [CROSSTALK]
I know, I mean.
This is the thick of it.
So, I'll run through the specs before we start laughing at it.
Let's not wait.
If you're watching the video you can see these on screen.
If you are listening to the audio version track it down, what these things looks like.
They're enormous.>> They are and, you know, they are.
I mean my goodness like I, I, I would feel bad making fun of how ugly they are.
Well so this is the thing like so.
They, they, they they, they project kind of a heads up display in front of you [INAUDIBLE] like I think they pair with you phone via bluetooth.
They can only show the color green but they're.
Yeah it's, it's they're, they're costing 520 pounds but for up for pre-order in the UK right now.
So if you want one of these God awful horrible things, then, it's your funeral.
You can, you get, it's 520 pounds, $840 in the US, it's about half the price of the original Google glass was, and it is a developer edition, so it's not aimed at consumers, specifically.
But, they look absolutely terrible.
They look awful.
They look huge.
You know what's amazing?
We saw these, you and I together actually, in Berlin at the [UNKNOWN] trade show in September last year.
And, you know, we were talking, we were looking at them.
We were like, ooh, we're not sure about this.
And, you know, there were so many people there like, obviously [INAUDIBLE].
And it does look like, it does look like this.
I mean, even that big dongly, dangly puck thing.
Well, this is the other thing.
Not only are they huge.
They aren't wireless.
They're attached to a huge, like, it's like a hockey puck size thing and you you've got the battery in that.
It's got the, you talk into that to make phone calls [INAUDIBLE].
It, it's very frustrating [INAUDIBLE] because Google Glass.
You know, wasn't the most sort of elegant, neatest looking thing ever.
But like it's, it's what, like three years old now probably.
Since, since it first became a thing people were actually wearing.
On their faces.
Yeah I mean it's not too bad and it's just like years later here's what Sony has and Sony is, is historically famous for miniaturization.
In design and stuff, you know.
Like look at the, look at like the Walkman and Discman and stuff like that.
Like, they're really good at making, well, they have been in the past really good at making.
Existing technologies small and, and really nice
So I don't know what's going on here and also like, what.
Like they, they've they've sort of released this into the world
at exactly just after Google says we're stopping
Google said this is a terrible idea
[INAUDIBLE] We're rowing back.
I hope he didn't divert too much effort from other projects.
So what, what are our readers and listeners saying about this?
Are they, are they fans?
Well they, they are actually a lot more charitable than we are.
Oh, no wait.
Derek Gore says I predict a huge flop, poor Sony.
So Wobble says maybe the first product in history to make Apple and PC users join hands and yell in unison that they'd all found.
The worst thing created this decade.
To be fair, she should be [UNKNOWN] this is aimed, I think, largely at businesses, so it's the sort of thing that [UNKNOWN] if you need to be hands-free when you're in the factory or the plant, or something like that, you can go up to a piece of machinery, and it'll show you what.
To attach pictures and stuff.
Gotta be, gotta be hands free, in the factory.
Coltron says hm, $1500 to look like a creep, or $840 to look like an idiot?
Tough choice, yeah.
Well, maybe it'll be fine, maybe it'll be fine.
Fingers crossed, that's ,. Speaking of looking like an idiot.
Washing Machine Gate.
This is one of my favorite stories.
This is fantastic.
It's been a, LG has released CCTV footage of the moment of its executives is accused of attacking a Samsung washing machine.
Well, this is, the trade show that we just, just mentioned, actually.
IFA, this was in Berlin last year.
It's a trade show where all the companies get together and show off their new products.
And they've only just got round to watching all the CCTV footage.
Well what happened, so what happened is that LG accu, sorry, Samsung accused an LG executive,.
One Jo Seong-jin.
I'm not sure if I pronounced that correctly.
But he's the head of LG's home appliance section.
He's the LG executive.
And he was with some other LG executives.
They were checking out the competition as, as you do.
And he he looked at a washing machine and he started like, you know, fiddling with it and stuff.
It's on the screen now if you're, if you're watching the video.
And here he lands on it, and he, like, puts his weight on the door and stuff.
And Samsung claims that that's corporate sabotage, and they, they've really hounded him.
So, LG has released this video, to show that it wasn't as bad as all that.
There is this I mean there you can see, but he does actually put his back into you can see when you watch the video.
He does sure.
But yeah but LG claims this is the kind of standard engineering test that he would've just done so.
Who among us can say that we've never been at a trade show and just sort of you know, seen how strong.
Oh, I've broken something at trade shows.
Yeah you know when, you know when hybrid table PCs with detachable screens first came along, that ones that kind of.
That they've, they've got conflict because they've got the, these lap tops where the screen comes off and it becomes a tablet.
Right in there, they click together.
To be one screen.
Cause the hinge.
Junk, yes, Right.
So the hinge bit is quite a complicated bit and over the course of three days.
I can't remember which company it was.
Had this tablet sat out it was only like a prototype, it wasn't finished.
[CROSSTALK] Someone else [UNKNOWN] can get theirs.
[LAUGH] Someone else [UNKNOWN] so it's been opened and fiddled with all day for three days, and I broke it, completely broke it.
To the end.
I've had enough of this!
Just threw it to the floor.
Snapped it over your knee.
Put the pieces away.
But this is a fantastic story, though.
I, I, I would like to read all my reviews in that fashion, actually, from now on, just [INAUDIBLE].
yeah, this is a fantastic story.
So yeah, LG and Samsung.
I guess you could say LG is trying to spin the story.
They're airing their dirty laundry.
Yeah, it's [INAUDIBLE] wash, though.
No, but it should stop other execs from trying the same thing.
In other words, Rich.
It will act as a detergent.
If we could finish the rest of the vodka right now, we're going to go on like this.
And yet, yet.
We've run out.
I think we've run out now.
Stop listening if you don't want.
Something, something rinse something something cycle.
The ones we thought of in advance.
But I'm not sure off the cuff.
Cuff delivery was really like.
I, I see.
We sold it.
So what's what's, what's [INAUDIBLE] have we heard from any [INAUDIBLE] on this one?
Visual feed says all LG would have had to do was design a defective washing machine door and Samsung would have copied the door to their washing machines in a matter of days.
I'm [INAUDIBLE] gave you a hard time.
It's my turn actually.>> Even releasing a new model before the end of the trade show.
That's not a leak it's designed to was your floors to, you just need to buy the optional S Mop for it to work properly.
S Mop, I could just see something doing that.
Actually we need to move on as well, I know that we've had a great deal of consumer advice, but we don't have time unfortunately for a. Somebody who's complaining about the, ice in his freezer.
Well, yeah, but you know,
You can see that on Facebook if you really want to look at it later.
So, yes, so, speaking of mistakes being made, by that, that guy, that LG guy.
Here's some more mistakes that you might want to cover up.
Or get rid of.
So this is a guy who student in Canada who's come up with a tattoo removal cream.
So if you regret at tatoo then there's a guy called Alec Falkenhamhe's he's in Canada's Dalhousie University.
And he's come up with a technology called Bisphosphonate Liposomal Tattoo Removal which is as coincidence that's my mother's name and it.
So that's actually where my research was going as well.
So I mean I'm happy for the guy that he got there first but I mean it's pretty much what I was thinking.
Well you've got a better marketing budget so I think you should be okay.
So what it does is it targets one blood cell called macrophages which kind of, which sounds quite gothic and they sound like the bad guy aliens in something.
yeah, the cream essentially encourages these white blood cells.
To eat up the old macrophages and carry away the pigment in your skin causing the tatoo to fade.
It's much less invasive, painful, and time consuming and it's much cheaper than laser removal.
So there you go.
Could you could you run up, could you wait for someone who has a tattoo to fall asleep and-
[LAUGH] Rub it all over.
And remove that tattoo.
Or draw a smiley face or something like that.
That would be amazing.
yeah, so this, but this guy has four tattoos of his own and he doesn't regret any of them.
How has he been testing it, Rich?
He's been testing it on pig's ears, I believe.
He's made a right pig's ear of it, you might say.
The worst of the pigs on, on a statue, and they were like.
You know anything you can do about this?
Do not want this to follow me around.
I have a job interview next week.
Well there you go.
You could probably do something about the Pokemon you've got tattooed on your body.
Yeah, and I don't regret that so.
All a hundred fifty one up my spine.
Why would you regret that?
Why would I regret that?
You, you, but you actually have real tattoos.
I do have real tattoos but I don't regret any of them, even the dolphin or the chinese symbol that says Samsung.
The dolphin, haha, yeah.
Yeah, check out my dolphin tattoo, haha.
yeah, so, moving on, the, people who are planning to go to Mars have been whittled down to a hundred, so that twe-
two hundred thousand people applied for a chance to go with a non profit.
Private space travel company to go to mars.
And the number has now been whittled down to just over 100.
There's there's 50 men and 50 women, and five are from the U.K.
Our readers aren't sure about this, though, are they?
No Stormspace says I'd much prefer they send robots.
I had first to build a working and stable habitat.
Then send professionals.
I have no desire to watch people die on national TV.
Well that [UNKNOWN].
There is a reality show element to this, so yeah.
Is the reality show element going to take place on earth?
Presumably, it's not going to be them actually in space.
We'd have to wait ages for the day.
That's true, actually.
Well, anyway, victoria_123 says, frankly, I don't understand how someone can not only have the design.
But tell their family, many of the original applicants have spouses and children, that they wanted to leave them forever and go to Mars.
That's, that's the sort of passive-aggressive thing my mom would say.
She'd go, well, I don't see the appeal of going to Mars, frankly.
What's wrong with staying here?
[LAUGH] I mean, come on, it's going to Mars, for god's sake.
He wants to have people on Mars.
That's pretty cool.
Yeah, but like, what a conversation.
The awkwardness of that chat would haunt you all the way to Mars.
You'd, you'd look back at Earth.
You'd be the first person to look back at Earth from Mars, and all you could think was like, right down there is someone who I told like.
I'd rather be on Mars.
Cuz it's a long trip.
You're in there for three hours with a bunch of, three hours, sorry, three years, or however long it is.
With a bunch of strangers and then you get there and it's just red and dusty.
[LAUGH] Again, why would you want to go to Mars?
It's just red and dusty.
In reply, to that comment, WitchDoc59 said, it's much like the explorers of several hundred of years ago who set sail for the New World without really knowing if they would ever return again.
Well, the settlers, they left the old world for the new world, knowing they will never see their friends and family again.
What would our world be today if all these people had stayed home?
Well, I bet we could've avoided a fair amount of trouble, to be honest, if old world, new world settlers had stayed home.
We could have all just hung out.
But that was a good point about, you know.
Very like a the spirit of exploration and [INAUDIBLE]
We've got time for one more comment on that subject.
But go on ask anyway.
All right then.
[INAUDIBLE] As seriously as this project is making light of a manned mission to Mars it's supposed to be a mission not.
I just takes one mechanical problem to kill the whole crew, and if you don't have your best people there to fix it in time, everyone dies.
Well that, that is true, obviously, but,
There's lots of concern in the comments about basically this being like a reality TV show gimmick thing, rather than a proper, serious mission to Mars.
Is that fair?
I don't think that's fair, because they've recruited scientists and other technical types.
That's right and yeah.
Am I right thinking that they've also recruited, recruited one guy who, who says he's a martian?
Well, yes but.
A 58 year old man from Poland who goes by the name M1-KO.
And said he's a martian sent to earth who would be happy to help us explore his home planet.
But, does it mean they're not taking it seriously?
I mean, I don't want to be in a spaceship, necessarily, with Mike the martian.
The martian, yeah.
Long time to be in a spaceship.
He sounds a bit like the novelty tie wearing guy, a bit like the guy in the office [CROSSTALK]
If anything, he is evidence that we shouldn't be doing this.
Because he left his home planet never to return, and now he goes, I wanna go back.
So, should we really be, you know [CROSSTALK]
So anyway, good luck to, the five from the UK.
That's, Allison, Ryan, Hannah, Maggie.
And Clare, good luck from,
Good luck from the CNET UK podcast, that is pretty cool.
Okay, and our final, last story, this is a great one.
This is about a scientist who proposed a cortical modem which they reckon is going to be a chip the size of a couple of coins,
Which you will stick in your head,
And that will implant directly into your, your visual cortex.
And allow you to to see like a heads-up display like Terminator or Robocop as you're walking around.
Coin, coins aren't that small.
Or is it like a 50p or something?
Yeah, getting it to, into your ear is probably gonna be a bit,
yeah, yeah, it'd be the size of two quarters, it would cost $10, and yeah, it sounds fantastic.
I mean, it's pretty clever, and it's using something called optogenetics which involves.
Altering DNA right, and then-
And turning them on and off with light because they're light reactive.
So you can fire neurons by shining lights on them.
That's pretty impressive.
And then possibly you can control control neurons.
So it could as, as well as having a cool heads up display, it could also you know, potentially cure.
To your site last night and your logical decision.
Oh, well, I mean, ask it as well.
And 0B3Ben0B0 says, and then they'll give the undocumented API to the NSA.
[LAUGH] Well, that's true.
Although, the NSA should already know.
But if they, yeah.
Well, that's enough of this week's news.
Lets go to feedback.
Okay let's hear what you guys have been saying.
Richard Ambler said if the temperature is ten degrees and we add on the windchill factor, it now feels like five degrees.
Surely the temperature is five degrees and not ten, isn't it?
Well, he raises a good point.
But like, temperature is, is subjective.
So it kind of, it kind of makes sense, right?
Because you're saying like, if it's, if at the moment it says ten degrees, even if it feels like ten degrees, it's still ten degrees.
Like it might feel like, it might feel like five degrees to us.
Like if you're a very, you're a very hearty man, Rich.
You probably don't feel any temperature change.
I don't feel anything.
You're always at cool room temperature.
Yeah, you know.
No matter where you are.
Well the room, you know the room from room temperature, that's whatever room I'm in.
[LAUGH] That's how the measure it?
Yeah, that is, yeah.
So they keep that a constant.
Andy [INAUDIBLE] says, I have a Google cardboard.
Which is Google's like make it at home [INAUDIBLE] the Oculus Rift thing.
Yeah, yeah, you own [INAUDIBLE] it and you've got a virtual reality headset.
But it's hiding my eyes when I use it.
What can I do apart from stop using it.
Well don't hide your eyes, Andy.
Your eyes are your best feature.
Well I mean, I, I don't think it's possible to use Google Cardboard without hiding your eyes.
So I wonder if maybe Andy means hurting my eyes.
In which case, don't use it if it's hurting your eyes.
Take it off.
Definitely take it off, yeah.
If anything's hurting, stop doing it, as as I tell my, my wife on a regular basis,.
I know [INAUDIBLE]
Regular screen rates [UNKNOWN] and, that's, whatever screen you're using, whether it's a computer at work or [UNKNOWN] a TV at home.
[UNKNOWN] So it's a good five, ten minute break every 50, 60 minutes, are good for you.
And remember, sitting down is killing you, so get up and have a little wander.
Yeah, and don't just look at your phone cuz that don't misses the point.
Craig Dobson says, daddy or chips?
I think we we both have to answer that one, don't we?
David Francine says Lollipop or iOS 8?
Haven't had a good phone shout-down in a while.
[LAUGH] I think, you know, I think part of the reason for this is like, it's, it's done.
We've lost the will to argue about this stuff.
They're all the same.
I'm done, David.
I mean, they're not all the same, obviously, because there's Windows Phone and the.
Which is the best?
Well it's not the same, let's just put it that way.
Which is the best?
Not, Mike Bat says why don't Americans say maths?
Well it, because we took the S with us when we left.
It was part of the you know, the settlement.
They, they got to keep the country, we got to keep the S out of maths.
It could be awhile.
In fact, it's because, so there's different arguments about this in [UNKNOWN] so the idea that mathematics ends in s means some people shorten it to maths, but the idea that mathematics is a maths now that just happens to end in s.
And it's not actually so much for plural, it's why someone would say math.
And both are kind of right.
Math now is a thing that has quantity, but is uncountable, like anger, music, sushi, or cinnamon, that kind of thing.
But interestingly enough, this is one of the things, when I actually looked into this, you think that the British was is going to be older, that the Americans came up with some new-fangled way of doing it, and they're wrong.
Use of math goes back to 1890 in the United States.
And the use of maths goes goes back only to 1911.
So the, the Yanks got there first.
It's still maths guys.
Oh yeah, obviously it's still maths.
I mean, probably what happened was we spotted that that was happening in 1911 or whenever and said like.
Let's just correct that.
Problem, problem solved.
Josh King says just one question.
Will Samsung ever stop using its Galaxy brand, and keep up the good work.
Oh thank you, thank you Josh.
[CROSSTALK] it's too successful isn't it?
Yeah, I think so.
I mean, they have dropped it from some things.
They dropped it from the Gear smartwatch devices.
subsequent, the first one was called the Galaxy Gear, but then after that it's just Gear.
So I don't know.
Yeah, let's see.
They're obviously keeping for, for the tablets.
If you are interested in Galaxy devices then, our producer Mark, who you will never see, has made an excellent video plugging every, well it shows every single Galaxy device.
Every Galaxy device ever.
In one amazing.
There's like 300 of them.
[INAUDIBLE] Yeah it's like an intimidating fly through.
It takes mere minutes, and it's like all flying through.
And you're just overwhelmed by the sheer volume of how many there are.
Dizzying volume of phones flying right over your face.
So yeah, So check that out, that's on Cnet.com I think it's called every galaxy device.
Every galaxy device yeah.
So David Butcher says Hi guys.
I just got back from the Integrated Systems Exhibition in Amsterdam.
It was huge, with many, many impressive 4K and 8K screens, but little new tech-
Yep- What events in 2015 would you really recommend visiting?
Well, you know what, you don't have to visit events because we do that for you.
We do the hard work so you don't have to.
Doesn't sound like a great deal, you don't have to visit events.
Cuz we are doing it.
[LAUGH] Well, so we're going to Mobile World Congress in, in like about a week actually.
So look out for new stuff from that very, very scene.
That's the big phone and tablet show [UNKNOWN] of wearable technology and all that kind of thing.
Plus, the S6 will be there.
The new HTC phone is probably gonna be there.
Yeah, every, everyone's gonna have new phones there.
So yeah, we, we'll look out for that.
But if you do wanna go, there are other shows that are on a [UNKNOWN] from the fact that you've been to the integrate systems exhibition that you.
You've got some kind of an IT background, you might be interested in the wearable tech show, which is coming up in March.
Again, we're gonna go to that, but that might be interesting too, that's in London.
And Ether, [INAUDIBLE] in September, is open to the public.
Open to the public, yes.
So anyone can go along to it.
That's pretty cool.
That's in, that's in Berlin.
Loads of new stuff.
You can go along there.
and mess around with washing machines with LG executives.
And finally, [UNKNOWN] Ahmed says in an email with a subject line of which why the sky is blue, guys I-
Because it reflects the,-
Guys, I heard you one of the podcasts talking about it, well it's due to sun rays reacting with the layer of ozone.
[UNKNOWN] that's not a. A real word.
You must think we were born yesterday.
It's reflecting the sea, all right?
The new Marvel bad guy, Ozone.
