Buzz Out Loud
Ep. 1440: Hooked on Eagle Cam!It's the latest internet webcam sensation that has taken over the BOL crew. Google is bidding for some sweet telecom patents, but is anyone bidding on MySpace? We don't think so. Plus, Computer Love returns to brighten up this Monday.
Today is Monday April sports. 2011 about when the buzz out loud my name is Steven -- -- I'm Brian's song my headphones on it no idea lawyers that is that I am Hollywood wanted to let out about inside doesn't -- terminal link. -- devastated 14140. Cents while. The water became light what -- was -- -- the headphones on so. The other day it's a Monday and also our live stream is not happening. -- though unfortunately because -- stringing them babies -- -- implement the program. But we're getting you know -- have to download later Morgan upgraded the machines today and then hopefully everything will be back to normal. Yes we apologize for that but if you guys listening coming out those in the chat tomorrow will make it extra special party will make it up pre and now we. And if you've never been there then you know taken out cnet.com slash. -- -- -- It. Is not even file -- that machine will be upgraded -- infinitely everything we've got. And now for the -- youth. Two avenues -- is a new that we can ignored no longer can sprint for a lot of -- kind of like inside baseball writers like there's this weird stuff going on and and -- and -- to do. Now. It's a new company in -- like a whole new -- -- so apparently everybody reports for engadget has left and gadget post -- Alpert at. And at all I mean really it's like eight of them. And they're all going over to SB nation which is actually a sports broadcasting site to start a new -- that the direct competitor to -- You know what's insane about this move is that just -- -- -- When he letting gadget he said he is embarking on some new ventures and as been nation. Is really known for being a collection. Of aggregated sports sites specific -- teams that it is now. Built itself as this large. Destination spot to find out about all the latest sports headlines like sports news but in Canada more insider -- bloggers. People that might be closer to the team then let's say and yes pianist which cut which covers very a -- in depth but is more general -- nation feels kind of more like. Here I got -- home guy covering my home team right so the engadget crew. The linked up with the SB nation guys and they'll be working on developing a tech arm from them and it's not about. It's more about building a new. Media Platt former new media conglomerate that is sports that is tech that will potentially see other wings of content. And topics but -- -- really into the technology that they have an explanation and how they run and operate things well and -- bake -- who was the executive vice president that AOL. During the time where he acquired engadget who is. The guy running the show over -- -- -- so there's there's relationships that are happening also as well. Exactly and they say that what they're really excited about two is the technology and I think that's probably richer alarmingly thin like what they're building the web for what the web is doing right now. And that's you know that's something that they're thrilled by because they're also nerds. At. Yet it is there is this document that came out awhile ago -- AOL way and the Yale away was sane. That they wanted to target particles that were getting the most hits it. It may not necessarily been about content per say it was more about getting the most clicks and when you if that's a full -- oven and editorial. Division -- The people working there better. All about digging for the stories finding those little niches -- angles that are different -- covering things that you just aren't familiar with. But that kills that spirit in the kills the -- -- up on. And -- pretty much all -- gadgets up a meeting gadget what it is they're gone. Yet it's interesting. To both. Paul Miller and Ross Miller. Who when they left both publicly said they did not like AOL's editorial direction were very up front about that. And -- he said as -- nation believes in real independent journalism and the potential for new media to serve as an answer an antidote to big publishing houses. And SE a spam a point we couldn't be more -- not. -- effects it connected it. It is flat out the entire staff basically -- -- all of the founders thing. We're out here in and -- New York Times article about abide by David -- just. -- -- -- In Internet years -- -- long in the tooth and seems incapable of playing nice with the toys that buys. In and it doesn't help that AOL changed strategies more than as often as lady -- -- which is out sunglasses. And development. Bad news so -- we'll see how -- -- takes about com and I'm really curious the other new venture goes now. You know will still be here I mean not good -- yet I mean certainly you know I think competitive -- at CNET as well but I you know I'm of the opinion -- systems -- the Goodmail. And either -- talented guys and and I have to say it like in a lot of ways kudos -- them -- thing. We we're sticking to our editorial -- Like. And also in further proof that ale while at this point is -- no place to be for anybody. I mean maybe. It fair that the Huffington Post transition team because I think what part of what how what seems to have -- hunting as Apple Beers and I know really know what is what's really going on Mac there but it sounds like part of what happened is that after they buy. -- -- Things got really -- and I guess -- like. And after the about techcrunch Arrington was thrown barbs at engadget nobody -- up for them and whatever and and how upload now like the new darling. And I think it sounds like the part of what was going on there. Have a transition team has now officially eliminated all AOL freelancers and contractors. And they're moving all of that editorial in house they really wants. Full time employees who are expected to report to the office everyday for a forty hour work week and one freelancers kind of scattered around. One of and that's it hearkens back the old school days of centralizing all of your journals in one place. That can be -- we we here at scenic and I have a mix of the central news team here on site. And in different offices and also we have a blog network -- people contribute from remote locations. The -- -- try to bring everyone back and under one office which kind of throws back the old days after you know how offices were set -- but one of free lancer posted a note. Of how he or she they did -- reveal their identity of felt about this whole you know letting all the feel winters ago and one of the notes by the person by the -- that we will be replaced either by. A handful of people Pittman has -- -- or with young new read cheap writers who have yet to be hired them and they did offer them. To stay on board and help contribute if they wanted to. But for download for free -- -- -- And it truly taken -- of what the name free lancer. You might mean to them that hard it's cracked me -- lake -- county could still contribute if you like -- -- well actually that's kind of part of the -- a deal. They have. -- ton of free competitors and that has been one of the complaints. Since -- since AOL bought them is that apparently it because they -- has hired some pretty high priced editorial talent -- -- -- big names. And people of complain that like okay well now Howard Kurtz. Who was brought over from. The Daily Beast is apparently -- is making -- 600000 dollars a year right. But the freelancers are still being asked to contribute for the other ones who were contributing to up but before -- So there -- all liked Kerio. And then navigating it but honestly I kind of understand consolidating in the newsroom and saying like we want -- have a newsroom where everybody. Works together because the -- -- five does generate a lot of creativity you know. It's good to have a blend of both of them but it's definitely it's and it's changed to change as -- as Microsoft might say. However AOL's business and finance editors to be clear. -- it says it is not true that AOL has fired all of its freelancers he says the company is hiring some of them full time. So a lot of editorial changes before it no question who suffer awhile you know we're -- Republican around -- -- they have been the only place to go for journalism. If your you know in in journalism and -- like. In meaning you can and you know like on the one hand but the other -- in terms -- -- -- on the other hand. -- -- -- -- They're mad about something -- and they got it and they're smart guys -- yeah so I'm mad about this. I'm out about the email I got from Tivo they -- email address and my username and a my actual -- name has apparently been exposed. -- company that -- wouldn't even identify. And that really made me mad. Yeah so what happened over the weekend some of you. Might have been hit with this but you might receiving email from several companies organizations like you are on their mailing list for example Kroger Capital -- -- I had an email from Tivo whilst receiving you know from best buy it but looks like there's a security breach that enabled -- -- authorized person to see some of customers' names and email addresses. This -- -- that Epsilon which is a -- provider. Of email marketing service home so our friends and apps on her -- -- -- someone made a visit to the exposed us yet and it. Andrew went up on say there were just a few messages here and we certainly connected dots -- like what's going on here. But they were hit and everyone. And they said no other information -- than that was revealed which is. I guess a good -- -- the same time my email address I get enough spam I don't I don't want more. Yeah but that. I don't want anymore I'm not happy that that's -- there at least it is my spam catcher address. The airline now is the it's my own personal address. -- and -- -- the that it. At least they out that no personally identifying and personally personal identification information or credit card details were compromised just turning. But I didn't understand if it was like the company that -- contract with to send us news letters or if it was the third party email marketing company that -- -- -- amount of with tube. Of the things you might be their newsletter operating company. -- capital -- thirtieth though. You might if you wondered what the -- analysts capitalists are. And then another interesting news today Google is apparently -- 900. Million dollars. 900 million dollars -- Port 6000 Nortel Telecom patents nortel's -- Telecom company that's going out of business and and them Google is basically what -- -- -- it's like the dark -- -- stocking horse. Did so bidding will now start at 900 million dollars. -- this that this stocking horse at that sale allows other bidders to jump in now now that Google's. Kind of put their stake in -- said yes indeed throughout the 900 million dollar number now we had talked about these Nortel the Nortel Telecom -- that we're. Up for bid and a few months ago and one of the things is -- room several companies buying. For these patents because more than anything else and Google says in one of their blog post that. Part of the warfare or defense against all these patent lawsuits that are being thrown around from company -- company is to use it. As a little bit of defense as well as to give you the freedom to continue developed by securing other people's patents Obama -- -- again -- apparently -- overtime. Mottaki. So you -- -- use these to see -- hundred people. Yes. -- -- -- Yes I agree that on the one hand a company's best defense against patent related litigation is as they say a formidable patent -- -- that's totally true. It's but it's so that Google can make tons of money developing an amber and as much as -- this is -- Exactly. Like you know what it takes to be able to innovate in the business base 900 million dollars to be able to innovate in the wireless space. In whatever manner you see -- -- in what government you're you're capable of the only way. The you can and -- read about that the only when he can be safe from litigation is in fact you have 900 million dollars and 6000. Patent war chest -- -- that is not what is wrong. With the patent system like I don't know what is a solar pads make them might know Google you know that they're it is few other people into the -- round if they can't be that negative view. Everybody. I I would almost feel though -- these patents were valid enough Nortel would have. Been able to survive by suing other companies these. Patents cover wireless four G data networking optical voice semiconductors and other Telecom -- again if they were significant enough. I'm sure Nortel would have gone after more companies and at least been able to bring in a little -- -- itself is so expensive it okay we're already kind of broke they might not have been able to afford that it and they would have only been. Then a patent holding company but you wouldn't have any product behind them and that that and that's part of why they're getting rid of this -- -- I dispute there are so many different levels of -- are what what I don't even know specifically what these patents cover rate neither of us really do what are the specific. No violations other companies might be and with these but I just I'm just saying that if it was strong enough they -- actually made some money I don't know about that. I mean they may well right they're gonna make 900 million dollars minimum where the -- is gonna start. Like this is the best way to make money -- the patent portfolios to sell it off as opposed to trying to litigate over and over in -- But this if Google -- 6000 wireless patents and they -- like. Four G. Data networking optical voice semiconductors wireless. Like not just you know is it that they -- slide to unlock the -- -- -- -- -- this is actual technological patents. Google suddenly becomes. The big dot in wirelessly they -- me can -- -- carrier. I -- don't know how significant these specific patent you know what these pads actually are covering in those areas that are neither. You know I would like to know that. I would like to know but clearly they must -- somebody think they're valuable of the bidding starts at almost a billion dollar half a billion -- So will follow the bidding so far there have them in any. Word on any potential other bidders then it's just -- -- the starting point there and dynamic -- up there with a hundred or mastered meaning. And Apple. Apple can now into another area -- That's what I'm saying -- bidding war -- if it happen if there are significant enough Apple with the other hand there without a doubt -- If they -- Well wealthy well in the -- that's looking for bidders. This coming out from all things. Potentially -- sell off or -- an auction bidding section for the MySpace -- site which. A news corps has. Not only kind of thrown under the bus now but said an -- -- -- grabs you guys can take it and according to reports there is no bidder in. Not even in the lead there just doesn't seem to be any -- and a MySpace and there was any other MySpace faction in knowing showed up to -- -- -- those that. A -- I mean that now -- Though I mean it starts Wednesday I guess will see. They say there are maybe enemy about a dozen interested parties who get a walk through the book. And those getting into I had read and -- -- RI's global lead enabled. Leave that room immediately I just like deleted my MySpace page it to be like a month. I was still isn't down yet with an -- detail until -- moments ago what they did the redesign. -- it was the first time I take my page out in over a year and a half. And I said I can close -- down edit them. And you can't with new music without commercials playing now. Here's the thing though there'll always be a -- There's only sites we've seen that have been sold even referral like five million dollars yet just -- just -- -- -- -- from another country like a China holdings company or something like. Exactly and if -- -- who's interested. As its its right now private equity players Providence Equity Partners alleged that silver lake partners. They've been in discussions with -- -- They say it interesting that criterion capital partners which is the day then equity part. Partnership that by Bebo. Last year for -- and now. Sales -- Carolina -- might have ever remember that I would like Bebo you -- you you've got back. All right it's all right we're not only we can always the united no. -- amid the amid of the human missed -- -- -- but yeah I mean. I think that's probably what we're looking for -- -- MySpace by our new -- about MySpace for what with a 500 million dollars. And I I would be shocked. If they have -- the triple digit although there's no way there's no way mean there's no way -- -- -- million believe me be me. Maybe that's just to give you an idea of -- -- what -- MySpace is in. News corps recently showed that an operating loss of 156 million dollars for MySpace in the recent quarter. On the unique. Traffic. Has dropped 44%. In the recent months. -- from a year ago that if I have no one is it known as the mountain music artists. -- -- popular music artists are really -- using MySpace anymore. -- -- -- -- Okay so bomber near earth are -- my email if I know but also let that be a cautionary tale to -- Mehdi -- in this you know like. FaceBook will not last forever. Nobody ever -- -- we're gonna take quick break when we come back a sneak peek at windows eight. Sony gives us a hint as to what's. Going on with the next iPhone and there's momentum building for a terrifying new on -- -- Welcome back to buzz out loud is cnet's podcast -- -- start time and live streaming. Is does -- Monday have been here. It's such a Monday in a slow news day of it one of the biggest story that theme today and to. It was that there were when they carry and blue -- Jacks though. You know Microsoft has hinted that they wanna make windows look like some of -- it easier cleaner interfaces like the Xbox interface. And also implement things like the Kinect sensor. -- and whatnot. Maybe even some of the windows phone elements as well so it's only screen shots -- we have here. Showcase the ribbon. And if you're familiar with the -- -- The ribbon was. A bar that. Was right below the menu bar on Microsoft Office that gave you a variety of different options that went across so instead of having like a toolbar on the side. It was a little. You lose well liked it's more yet sort of a it's a graphical menus -- innovative instead of shortcuts on people are learned that you could see them and they were easily accessible. Del and everyone got used to it was like yeah I like to remain so it looks like it'll have and it's it's almost a little bit more dock like -- and it makes menu items a little bit easier to find. That sounds like also bits of the ribbon is a new kind of design feature that you'll see -- throughout windows -- And then apparently the two main features they think it can have our sink. Folder syncing across computers which would be on pace -- would act -- Drop box they would have web sharing and thinking and then. And then there and obviously that so I'd like more. The main and overwhelming design features the ribbon and in the main number overwhelming kind of new use feature is like this cloud integration and then -- -- thinking. There's also the welcome screen able to look a lot more like a windows phone lock screen them. Just as you know. Just -- -- it's really interesting they're describing it as like a hint of office a dash of Xbox. And it -- of windows phone subtlety acquired -- Good job -- -- is Mary -- involved in the creation of -- and I'd like to don't. Sure X and -- But but I didn't and some Windows Vista -- Nickelodeon. Through the Xbox -- Just. Wish the office spoonful of office is. -- spam. All right and that will not this is no one's life in Monday at the hard it is apparent not laughing we can't even tell -- pioneered. I'm gonna say that Stevens creek at face. That would tell us that now -- -- 120 it's. Monday all right that's another story as it happened over the weekend Howard Stringer Sony CEO had to sit down with. Walt Mossberg governing your -- is is a penalty if something like twenty dollars you'll see them talk about a variety of topics and during this -- Howard Stringer talked about how they were being affected. -- -- -- -- -- it was paraphrase the -- are best sensor technology is built in one of the tsunami affected factories but those. Go to Apple for their iphones or ipads is and -- something and they buy our best sensors from us. -- then upon hearing that -- -- afraid that apparently you can but apparently it's an aggregate -- -- in a re -- -- Sharon now I was reading that quote public figure quoted the wife and help her like night you know I was in that -- -- So list amenities together and outline if I was different -- anything about this is that. At the moment Sony doesn't make any of the centers for Apple's iphones or ipads -- and it's been rumored that. The next gen iPhone five will include an eight megapixel Sony sensor. And that omni vision which is the current. Contract did optical sensor for their cameras are currently in the iPhone -- so people like a cable. That's -- machine may be he just revealed that -- confirmed that he did it. Obviously he's not gonna say on the record yeah absolutely we have it but that -- -- lethal credit treated so that then omni vision shares. Affected by it this is what sucks when you're an Apple partner began the microscope is on -- Earlier today their shares dipped 11% on -- That they have lost the iPhone contract which again has not been confirmed it was a blurb in it in a -- town hall meeting type situation arch meter. -- however the street I guess had predicted in April last April. They reported that the fifth generation iPhone would have an eight megapixel camera from Sony -- the street had that same report correctly predicted the five megapixel sensor for the iPhone four from. -- -- And so that combined with this kind of like. Droplet you name dropped from stringer definitely has people. Selling selling out I'm -- -- which can you imagine like do you think I'm division had any idea is when your Apple partner at the -- hear anything but in the dark they do that their like. -- -- we fired -- what a -- I know for a fact many of my friends who work in the components business with Apple their portal -- in the dark -- like. Yeah you passable and about this like honestly I just don't know it let me know anything off and -- it's so unfair but I am I think it is it does seem. Like stringer may have suggested that the next gen iPhone will have an eight megapixel camera with a sensor from Sony -- to make it an even better camera than the iPhone currently has. -- the only thing I would hope. Is that there are also making the camera the wave better camera -- -- -- go in the next iPad because gimme a break. And that he gave me for -- -- -- V and that guy down in Florida -- than that and our source the computers -- and after is now Sony. Sir Howard Stringer also apparently said that Sony's first Android tablet honeycomb tablet. Will be on sale by the end of summer. And that it will come on sale for retail in the US burst in blue and little -- really know Sony is planning development gets -- -- -- Will we we hit I don't know fewer on the short we had we just dropped it it was like a piece of the -- We look at the article. This is the same image that we use where they were rumored to have some sort of like. For the tablet it looks like a getting a little mocha. At least in this case the I can only assume slightly simply Howard Stringer. Did say that it was happening I app piano I admit that kind of embarrassing the futile for the repeat paper used as -- come at least you know content. -- -- it does -- a while -- Canadian navy -- -- let them do that anymore he's gonna talk. I haven't I'm about -- with -- -- mail -- -- you're only -- the as the polluted river. And there's gonna be a bipartisan press conference on the hill today in Washington the latest sign according to the hill dot com. That years of lobbying on the copyright front by various stakeholders -- finally come to fruition in the form of new online piracy laws this year. Day -- we're not happy about this at all let -- -- should anything ever consumer friendly and knowledge they include specific allowances for personal fair use that limited personal sharing of the media that you own. Now him we and so I'm -- but we can't have that faith that you've just exhibited -- -- So. And now you know -- because they are a double layer is actually running the Obama administration and I'm not making matters like many many many -- -- -- -- lawyers are now serving in the Justice Department Joe Biden is aids. -- -- rule like a lap dog of the industry. Big time. And the drumbeat for unbelievably have -- -- and super restrictive piracy laws including the kind of -- that would would actually allow. The government to remove domains from the Internet was they apparently have just -- point -- themselves that. That bright anyway. That -- -- -- and I'm going to be good times. Yeah house judiciary ranking member John Conyers who's part of this group it's was -- -- millions Americans jobs are at stake because of these crimes. Which is why my colleagues and I will be coming together to carefully craft legislation entrant in nearly careful -- what we we've -- we mentioned there really could have implications of Howell. When they were first crafting this and had first come up in -- and discussions but this would target. Any website that sold counterfeit products so we are talking about eBay any website that shows counterfeit products on their search engines -- Google. So what -- so what are they going to do to really make this targeted and specific. If they are they gonna have a monkey go through eBay auctions individually take them down on behalf of the government. Now I don't think so there's no way. And the thing is that they continue to beat this drop right they continue to say. That millions of American jobs are at stake. That -- music and the movie industry in particular is suffering and on the brink of collapse. Because of the digital piracy and every time. That there is in fact some sort of an earnings report that comes -- like there was just a new report. About the MBA -- as the film industry is stronger than ever that just like last year they made more money than they ever have before. All of the numbers that they have come up with to try to prove the effects of piracy. Against as you know detrimental for the industry have been debug they have. Zero. Actual hard metrics to show at a loss of revenue. And yet they are still able to go and lobby congress and say. That this is a huge problem potentially affecting millions of jobs it's taking money right out of our pockets. And it is as far as we know because they do not have -- -- empirical method for determining that and they continue to make money hand over African best. Ally. And it is the kind of -- that keeps leading to catalog and the kind of law that means that you can't. Transfer music from one library on your part an iPod to another computer because you've -- think he -- wouldn't you know it never works out in the favor of the consumer and in fact this idea of taking down. Web -- Willy Nilly is. It will break the Internet. It also doesn't work because we saw what they did with directly for the Super -- they took down around I think the dozen or so -- -- web sites. And you know let that might have worked per day but most of them already pop right back up and really the movie industry if you're worried about what's making you lose money. Is movies like sucker punch that's why -- I that's why you're losing money okay up okay. It's just like a bunch everything cute saying that it is absolutely not Steve Jobs -- the music industry it's it's repackaged crappy music you know it's it's. There's the question of what people will pay for and trying to force them to pay or crappy stuff is not -- actually way to sustain a business. I'm sorry. -- -- That but speaking of lobbying. The AT&T CEO is attempting Randall Stephenson was attempting to lobby the world. In favor of the AT&T T-Mobile merger with its hilarious considering that almost no one. Thinks that -- good idea and no consumers who know consumer advocate the economist came out against it like that. Nobody but AT&T thinks that this is a good idea at all. And yet he is on this tour now the media tour with -- -- -- cherry picked media outlets. Being asked questions. That are that range from. To be completely unanswered I mean people are basically about -- -- -- and then -- -- what I think people I mean Reuters. And -- USA today and then assuming that they do you. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- His answer was. Make technology decisions we outlet marketing plans in place -- make decisions that drive topic that we -- marked with think we've done pretty well I think sprint has done a remarkable job over the last couple years we'll do very well tomorrow. The -- -- don't that's an even answer any clips that didn't come close to answering the question and -- There was no follow up. -- You guys at this point. Honestly into the job of the media to point out how obviously monopolies take this would be and to force him to answer questions in a manner other -- The rain just sort of -- patriotism rightly or would premiere. But at. Do your jobs I'm pretty Randall Stephenson is being an economic fact that -- -- but let's hope that he does because forgot they are working on that no follow up. He did say. But consumers only have to -- that this -- their big -- -- -- a follow up after that ridiculous non answer consumers only have to places where they can get an iPhone. That's really compare that that's his response that I know that there that's the big follow up a -- like bullies that it -- to estimate again iPhone to. You look up we'll make technology decisions may technology that in. -- -- -- -- And it's not yeah because -- got an impediment to your media here everyone please him and that no one wants to happen. -- -- -- -- -- -- And we need to get it we really did hit a whole way we really do it at such a minor and out -- -- held without -- science problem. There holding a science fair. The first ever Google science fair global competition for teenagers -- -- sciences as diverse as computer engineering space exploration. And medical technology other considering the US education system we can only in the neighborhood who -- will be home school. -- Getting getting the at Google tools and a kids' hands though or using them early on my -- like the Apple -- to get you know to get them around the technology and -- them is a good thing via. -- use -- later also Cablevision. Is launching their own iPad TV viewing at. Cable operator Cablevision Systems announces over the weekend its launch the optimum for Apple's iPad on the EU can. Only watch it at home. They didn't lay out which networks would be available which I'm curious about because of the whole brouhaha we had over with the Time Warner app but. You know -- follow in their fall in the lead just like -- Time Warner pushed forward Amazon pushed forward with these things just do it happened figured -- -- Exactly -- their emboldened Bible Time Warner and Amazon element. AT&T is raising prices on iPhone early upgrades by fifty dollars it will grow from 2492299. For the -- -- and so on. Now you wrote yes that yes -- -- that three yes. But also to their increasing all the prices for smart about phones by fifty dollars with no commitment excluding the iPhone and then. Raising the price of the early operator's packet about the manic or raising the present from of the conflict eight -- -- So sorry there I I -- in their trying to raise money to pay for their -- media -- And. Well they also allow people to upgrade early for no for. No additional fees with the most recent iPhone four -- -- was -- way to lock people into years and now -- -- like we just like crap load of money on that. So and we got people in the tears LE one on exactly so a lot of big mouth and out and I gain nothing and it they're not going to let. They're doing and it'd be like -- you're not getting out of that. Now. You'll get your own -- now they're evil they are the first hit is free yet. -- -- Also Amazon on there's a new tool coming that is out and available now on windows PCs that allows to turn your Amazon cloud drive. Into an -- drive. Just like drop box -- -- it's called that. Glad to net cloud desktop it is 4999 they're working on a Mac version. But this this is awesome yeah that's 35 -- drive potentially twenty gig drive you buy an album. At your spruce and -- -- -- -- imovie on science is. This land is just after BT and yes it can antibody to W found affirming their and I did I found of the morning out like. -- -- -- -- -- -- Dinosaurs. -- -- think that this is lost some. And it doesn't have a crappy name your -- cousin has been found in -- the new dinosaur has been nicknamed or named. Huge -- okay maybe it is now and after that this entire NS Magnus in honors -- -- the city in which the fossils were found. -- you change. Death left by tonight and NO -- it's not Korea's Korea Sarah tops I have easily the worst. Emirates -- several times it's okay it's a marketing that was it I think that was the new dinosaur -- -- is behind us. Yeah behind us like 99 million years ago and ever buzz kill so you would be scared of Mozilla now -- trust is I would be amazed I might let it eat -- just because -- -- you're beautiful if it ended that few racked. 'cause that -- is the amazing thing about that they -- you know it's really rare. To ever find a new carnivore of this time -- gotta admit though I think the artists traditions are getting a little more people with colors. I have not seen a dinosaur that colorful and a long time. You rock like the red that Bahrain and -- you know every nominated dinosaur book the idea -- so percolate. This. You chains are -- measured at eleven metres long stood about four meters tall and -- -- yet did. They -- the sixth time and bloom at the big mind also literally and Higgins for the dinosaur needs -- And now our happy and I love this story because basically -- -- about began as -- The new Internet sensation.
