Ep. 65: Dogs uniteDonald takes a break from his at-desk occupy Wall Street protest to rant about the cellular monopoly and the disruptive potential of Republic Wireless. And while we are fine with robot slugs that can rescue us from toxic rubble, we have to draw the line...
It's Tuesday November -- and you are experiencing. The outstanding. Create podcasts I'm Donald now I'm Eric Franklin. I'm here. I was making noise in my Americans called in to see how or whether it's this I -- it seems even extra textured in my voice a little news had negative -- -- There's something more commanding about pounds -- that hasn't hasn't left little metallic today. I transformer he. -- -- police yeah you should go with that we should -- plan -- that every time maybe he even has. Stephen -- -- recording a make some better -- I mean by adding more screeching metal. Behind -- voices right. That's all it's actually that can be icann and the thing we need to steal it and as splintered podcasts that dislike the most unlistenable podcast ever. That's not just about us being boring talking messed up people don't care about. That literally is putting like shards of metal and horrible channel and our voices of fingernails. Were just discs options -- -- Horrible like Judy. To new it is voice in the background constantly singing what are quarry in -- it. And that it has -- a good idea to reference it in into the kind of feel like it is really -- -- and I just percent of coming -- my. AAF for the dresses and pass -- it costs. -- -- There -- only via drag and -- -- I need to do that. Recession Douglas and -- up there on the first I have is this sat at home I feel I felt kind of weird putting -- -- -- essentially a weird endorsement. In a certain -- but is making the relative was talking about this -- republic wireless. Nineteen dollar a month. Cellphone service plan that is this -- -- Of -- -- Plan and an actual cell service when you need it. -- It's an interesting concept. And ultimately need that -- the money trickles down over to sprint as the cell carrier through when he actually need to make a cellphone calling it use -- cellular network and a a Wi-Fi network but -- it represents. I feel like is this free mobile. Disruptive Spain. That has to be talked to share let's talk about it I have this available everywhere in the US and that's that's my first question is when you said it was. It's like this Wi-Fi. The -- were and I said this is basically that aids is making good on the premise that -- around or Wi-Fi. Connection. Most viewed about like maybe not in the car. That when your home when your work they've done it's lasers and X 60% -- day you've probably covered by Wi-Fi. In in the -- bye -- networks that you know like regularly use that your home or -- business network. Or when Sierra McAfee or something else we can maybe help use W 60% this -- this harassment and its interest in and so for those other times you not covered. And you really need to make -- call. We've -- I CD NA -- in here that can use Sprint's network right. To make your calls and yours hopefully got -- and noticed when you're in and out of range matter what you pick of the phone. You -- me as you know browse the web send text message or call. You can -- but the the phone is engineered to for the most part really try to seek out Wi-Fi is the best for solution. And only selling one phone. Right now. As 11 found its Android based Smartphone or not even funded by as a phone yeah that's it's over it's like what they support they -- that. There's an organic Apple get out of the four we have a large quantity hopefully of one -- -- -- yet. And it's not iTunes not a great Android Smartphone but it's the end it's for the people who feel like myself -- my mom this man parent who feel -- unnecessarily. Shackled. By a income monopoly state cellphone and cell provider industry okay. So what what does is give you other than that really cheap low price. What is is -- filling atlantis' does is give you use this thing. Low price ever got a contract free no price I don't wanna sell is don't know area in particular error although BS is them -- making it happen. But this -- disruptive idea I think -- How's it feel like it's -- listings whereas mr. tin foil hat here. I equal you'll see this company disappear in a week right now because what -- -- attempting to edu. Could potentially undermining industries so yeah dramatically. That could really screw things that somebody please and the head of that company. May have an accident. -- this week. I think you know as -- -- -- may never be seen again right. And and -- leading up to this launch apparently there -- -- and keep things. Hush hush that they couldn't they at least have a fighting chance and the QT bank may be -- parent at a time about it. But not for everybody. You -- everybody. The other than the price I don't really see much of it if it meant I what I would like as far as like the way people use their phones like when I am at work I'm using my phone. As a Wi-Fi. Device twenty dollars a month is and is less than half the price of like. T-Mobile twenty dollars a month. Exhaust and all contracts. No contact data at have a the text messages. Have -- a crappy Android phone. Plus -- now it's lead in these. Troubled times. Where they now we need -- -- -- you need only left because. It says this is denying the Niagara senator rain yeah share. To date -- data. This is the perfect time to be released in this won't cause I feel like you have the the -- -- is -- in this throwing about it dead you know -- share. So that. This Coetzer Kelly he's spent -- if I think this idea why he's a good idea of like the iPod Touch like you know is an assistant flight of the iPod Touch is the iPhone without the phone -- -- -- only -- we can wrap around. But there is like Vienna what was then the name of company and -- the little wraparound skin could have a sprint. He can have -- deal with it. And then you can actually hopefully make it he's content conduction make calls with it if you wanna -- sounds cool -- never took off right but it was awesome because you couldn't. It really -- -- Alec emergency calling features if you really need to call 91 on your -- iPod Touch you restrict red. Well you can call anyone. Let's -- If you were to look at the need to have the all the -- history -- sorted out -- you can read it -- that -- -- -- work as a -- antitrust case -- equipment he couldn't. Called on one matter. That this feels much is this really more like a proper phone -- its its its screwing over the entire. Idea that yet to have site users might -- all the time as -- Fifty dollar a month or more things like this is being anti forgy. OK but I get a handle it wife buys me faster -- -- -- in its share -- My -- that was that's important. I don't get it now I don't -- I love you love your cellphone bill and contract them I still I don't hate it -- useless -- needed to I like half of the -- wilderness that being. I am not ready to give up having a nice Smart phone and I'd go with is like on the -- like obese regained. Com phone to -- like a pay at a lower fee income stick it to the man and I. Believe -- the kind of guy we Donald jitterbug if demand it would save me from having to like. Bend over for a cell phone for -- -- you're the guy also with you know the wife and kid can I have -- life and you know makes more money to school. -- so much and I really worried about cuts and policy at the rally. GW -- occupying nap and I'll be the guy who opened on the the -- car. This does look for tag. It call I had enough enough hype around that thing -- and move on to my other love. Robots. This is a sluggish crawler vehicle. If the ad is just being developed hopefully for -- the purpose of it being -- kind of robot that can be used -- -- help. Go through. Water and patents toxic spills in my harsh elements and assault sealed up -- got -- being weird waterproof belly around it. That's a can roll over and that prevent itself from being mocked up by -- toxic to. It's creepy it's -- it's time -- end -- like it feels like there's something alive in there. Like moving around so it's weird roving guy with a blank. But I also see a -- -- it almost feels like it's an anti project -- he couldn't. Cozy for -- And it's come discuss the -- -- mood is. This is feels like -- -- when -- -- see it feels like it's too little to show what it does not look appealing to my point. So it totally just a project right now but day in the future as slug robotics is slowly. Coming through so. Good picture of slowed robotics is slowly coming -- -- the -- Aetna Aetna. -- I feel like -- one about the future of -- robotics people. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Businesses and not to spoil next story but -- -- -- -- horrible hunting I've seen. Military research project a dog thing that. This scary as hell is what it is and if -- had a swarm of -- same program roaming around it would be even cooler yeah like. This is just gonna be like a little -- like the little companion rat right where the bigger more terrifying robot like the big. -- -- Tank robot. Right this is can be as little buddy life -- in the robot a list they'll be like -- giant -- Tryon you know. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- He dials vision of the apocalyptic future and it's robots work -- -- there isn't new there's a new character in the cast of characters of the robot. We'll go ahead yet -- this is a little robot topped the -- -- voice was just like low beeps and like -- to Tampa Florida beach and -- but the big robot does he. Or disease that grow on. A giant kind of sounds -- it sounds exactly like -- Okay. Then that's just serving. Like of these general well like the female. Australian female voice which is to and -- -- Also not voiced a robot guide dog that navigates using a Microsoft connect controller on its head once -- -- it. Album yet now as much as I enjoy robots. Well. This actually makes nearly -- -- Will soon. Because a dog would have done this a real blog would have done a society much faster. -- is that jobs from real dogs. Where that's what is is this is conflict here. Like keep you want to be the most horrible person in the world you would -- -- to light a candle. And show them this video and say sorry suckers. King amendment that we would rather spend millions of dollars you know slower robot version of you been to not even die in union -- You might if it. -- the Paper food to feed you so you could do this job. -- -- -- -- Now there's a camel and crying dogs somewhere right now we're watching this video. Fare watch our video watchers feel and there -- not be. I I don't know bad guys deliberately trying to dress like. -- -- and -- its. I can say like senior citizen you know he does have that goes with it at Google I walked right as it -- -- -- he has committed. Welcoming this to be actually cool if they went all the way immediately or a connect controlled. Blocker. For senior citizens now movie control and that. You can to a premier connects there are now mean its little head would just feel compelled -- then Mike thank you to turn it -- -- the concept. In taking -- -- methods of convenience. I would need to -- -- the whole robot identity let's say the rule that is logs need to have their own Occupy Movement. And I could lead dog on the -- aid are Japan Japan's robot making facilities that will put them out of work that sounds like a really really. That's too large -- a title for movement. Yet he can't get a kind of kind of break it down and this essential parts and then go to but the list of demands is pretty short anger. It tunes was about. Making robots -- likeness that. Cost a lot of money when you could -- that since. Well said dogs of the world. Well it's like -- and welcome to release it in this town and its -- and now. I love it isn't a lot I love the show she didn't love doing this show and the awkward silence this. Usually start with the -- And diseases like that in these. Which is this if it is news is webpart in my heart that -- and -- Dodd and the but it would actually usually got me to -- the dogs that could be my thing yeah they can be hearing -- -- -- went out there who's looking for a purpose in mind yeah just get a bunch of dogs. Take him over to Japan and stage a protest you see what happens. Occupying Tokyo. -- And it's sorted out there you know I don't even working on this is eliminating dog problem. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well yeah sure that -- -- should argument beat me. But we really don't need though. Is the -- -- now this is a have. Retro -- killer. Low Mo camera that will make short videos. Using a 35 millimeter standard slide film I believe there. And -- you're unhappy about this. Am unhappy -- not that unhappy about this and still like it sat there. It's pretty and necessary. You can only see the videos using a bad. Alone -- can telescope film viewer to conceal them on this little tiny. Screen. And now its its another is not innovation it's being sold that your your local -- to deepen its -- a little girl of its. Radical like what they're doing -- that next splitting up like a single frame of standard found seek any kind this widescreen effect but. They're selling it as if it be something you need never be able to see and -- can -- county could beauty right you'd be looking into little. Loma -- scope viewer to see this the end result there. But down many. Nine bucks know if you're really into the whole. Vintage film thing. Like the way films these days we conceal the eat well and I don't like all the free apps and -- -- sick days so low back. Because ills of at a time and there's gotta be some -- as embracing such as family. And you got to be this. You now know that's the cool part though I must he had the worst airport yeah -- -- -- your vintage camera. Filling your girlfriend -- her or her skinny jeans in her. -- call -- of the bangs. Simply and that's you know that's happening somewhere some -- has that camera's film -- a friendly eat cheese. While lake. She spilled in the -- she's she's dressed in her -- skinny jeans and her. Room. I'm betting that 50% of the things that -- -- will be some kind of really you know dirty art school dorm room thinks that stuff. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Also get a fully clothed people would -- -- in the city that the thing. -- -- We had to get the -- quotient in their someone we did not have -- view -- to clean up trying to hold back all right well. Don't hold back anymore. -- Geeknews let's go there now. -- Geeknews. What -- -- as we got a little. Zelda fan -- -- Zelda series. As good as a gamer as -- -- -- a hard court hearing more you can play one game a year what -- that kid that played -- at some point right. I do you remember the original Zelda and I was a Sega master system back so as I had all kinds of -- and Nintendo. And it's like yeah you mean absolutely I hated them now I am I and need them yeah I -- what they had him okay and Zelda was part of that equation. -- -- You won't get to play because you know we don't think. So there's a new Zelda coming out for the week -- -- whips skyward sword. And -- -- a week ago I couldn't I think -- remember it was coming out but then my favorite videogame magazine. Magazine. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And -- kind of adult computer game magazine if -- Red -- next gen next generation back in the nineties this is kind of this that's this is what that was based off of it was -- -- be American version of edge magazine but. -- magazine is still bullish on although -- has gone. So -- -- perfect and they said this game. Is it a kind of -- justifies the -- basically kind of it. This is the reason -- with the Wii was made this game and it's because of Vietnam in album. The control the -- -- -- -- -- 11 control the use -- Wii motion plus. Hi it has a sense of adventure kind of an Indiana Jones kind of export exploration. Real tangible sense of adventure to it. -- Olympics doesn't look like them all and in a written review and I'm so stoked for this -- -- little -- -- like. I can't stoked -- -- only national HD and we know about that whole thing graphics and that's not a -- as a point of mostly in and I'm sure we'll look good for that system. But I am I'm stoked for this game so all the reports -- And now. You'll get you'll buy and we just -- am. I wouldn't let are heavily. So we believe I have install uninstall kind of like my -- a -- just to get The -- what something like that well actually. In your case you an Xbox so others say may be your kid like we can -- to scan it connect. You know and then he would have to even pick anything up. It is -- noticed them on golden years plan so whenever that. Version of Wii is out then that's that's why -- putting enough yeah I -- when I'm on the elderly creation of that. Intergalactic cruise ship that cereals -- you know the solar system yeah I'm gonna be -- that the deck of the cruise -- somehow -- be. Yeah concealed some -- blond. Artificial gravity and -- force -- that keeps oxygen inside it sure Andy's complained Wii bowling. The 2005. Version of -- -- right yeah of course it is it's kind of like that while he meets sweet yeah -- -- -- -- people like the. -- -- -- -- Com also this week. As well as the small release now this is -- where -- to be going to be you know I mean it's. Currently this call of duty game. I was -- this either and then I -- this trailer and I expect it. -- -- -- I don't know the us that's all it takes really from me is -- 00 well stitched together trailer animals are about even. Reynolds of saint the every review that read today it's saying -- -- -- one Modern Warfare you know this this change hopes that they've been. Using for the last you know -- for five years. Since Call of Duty 4. They use them here too but it still works well -- -- just know that going in that you're getting kind of the same game in the most -- great notes that I'm against multiple. -- excited about this -- coming today. If it ain't broke don't fix scenario called a defense you know I'd done you know -- confirmed that and he -- this -- and have a lot of -- Kill and she's really stuff -- -- -- basically the a lot of red dead yeah that's my. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Okay because of the over here in my pea shooter via phone which originated DOT's right and and -- I don't. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Have -- feeling for it yeah -- them. I think we should go to the what is what what -- the gun stored in -- It seems there have been held a gun stores -- whether we can -- -- -- and click automatic weapons inside this place I think we should and he was you do that has. I'm never gonna die either next time he comes from -- -- -- same time. Like I don't like that they kill people but I like. What they look like when you're shooting and -- -- -- to. And you -- and then it could be a whole other podcast we have this podcast we got them on what we cause people pain. With this sounds to me right right right right and then we'd have that moment -- -- -- its troubled done via. Then -- -- talk I'm sure like to actually listen to the iPod and your art exist -- I'm sure treasure hunts and crap out of the wasn't. -- probably you probably -- judicial prematurely. All ages and -- but it's -- -- -- like -- just liked the look and sometimes -- and elect when he frantic scene that that they've they've firing on -- that. That let nonlife -- like to see the damage it's. But I don't like when two people still I don't know its its we're down to sleep the whole thing is -- expressly meet YouTube thing I know I know that's okay that's the only reason that they exist in that's a problem and I have which -- makes me glad that these games exist maybe to -- take out some of that -- battery channel. On the -- one that -- games. He shouldn't. You know you do the math and we plan a lot of fat man so yeah I'll. -- has been that men -- I was playing the hell out of that man is I download the -- wing of bullets pac man star Batman again. CD's gone although some go on I was like 27% into the story. MIC this -- -- race. And like the developer having really efficiently said the mother is a rumor that is -- -- a patch for this. But having really addressed as I was so -- to supplant my little player don't just MIC. -- you really -- patch also airplane again bill giving -- money. I don't care. The little -- even so into it I was so it's -- it. Another one as an example where I'd rather be a ninja -- man like kill the guy with one Wii isn't killing one. As the environment not a mouse laying them little bat wing writer Eric you know and veteran and I. -- at all dead. We don't have to make that sound you shoot the gun -- its I don't know -- that's maybe that's the problem is every time you start shooting in call of duty is to let. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If you're frighten the children now in -- herald sun look at is crying there. Like that. We just be laughed and Emmys and I. The clown and dad that followed in the minds on how we did -- email we got an email from Matt who want to say after hearing Donald go. On -- nine. About the show misfits which he thinks is awesome I thought I would let him know about another -- Netflix on Jericho which obviously town sorry about account. That's about as nuclear attack on US. And one of the best TV series on Netflix and he thought I should know since I was going on and on you are missed it and how great you are god you know -- presidency and globe and this fits the club is let's let's stick I think you probably meant Eric. Yeah yeah you got me confuses. Donald Glover me. Then -- Donald Anderson -- down Glover tweet sent it might I add replies. And I can I serious I am so where dog lovers career right now I think is at least everyday. Island as an act replied it's meant for Donald -- that what goes. I flex is what's as well as handle I think he's Donald Glover of Vietnam and you know his followers but space in between now and -- -- out of some. -- lack of awareness how -- -- her -- I get Donald -- -- to our emails but Meehan replied let's also has great except it's actually kind demoralizing for my needs into its its people would much rather talk about Donald Trump or Donald Glover delegates here that well. So it is it means that -- you know and. I got -- treatment and it. I witnessed -- -- -- For instance. And you can email so you can create -- -- Dhaka it's -- dumped it. -- -- Some do. -- if you. -- -- here. We might be joined. And by the evil. -- -- Possible how would you do this and I'm not gonna I'm not gonna see posing herself herself on to the -- That's like it -- she now -- San Cisco office -- -- -- when am I gonna take over your podcast yeah she held holding a gun to your neck at. -- genetic. That -- that area. -- Is that -- you know how she can just look you pocket a media weapon I can just like com to shutter and another person doesn't even -- them to your shorts and she learned that Obama -- about -- And they have the cones so -- he afraid next week you might experience so you know. Just watch out people does excel -- prepared to enact them via the fearful for us now want to go for the -- -- -- Due to that next week I see that --
