Buzz Out Loud
Ep. 1372: You're just groping airToday's show is more than a little off the rails, thanks to talk of the Sean Connery "Jeopardy" bot, a giant pancake maze visible from space, moochie friends, and air-groping. But there's news here, too: Facebook adds facial recognition to photo tagging,...
Today is Thursday December 6. Point them. -- -- -- -- I'm -- on Donald bell I am Hollywood welcome to buzz out loud -- podcast of indeterminate length it is episode thirteen 170 tune. -- Exactly and another volume and -- We're really the X we're keeping it together great keep it together wrote to Doug and all the -- of Munich to the -- at this point. Don't expecting much from -- and one on one of the new balls we that it today is Donald bell address -- and how it can help us and the third ball. -- That kind of -- yeah -- it. San wanna take it there and -- -- just -- softball. Adult. Donald third -- ball really well that'll be my legacy wonderful Oscar -- It's millions of and I have to navigate athletic -- and if you said miles it. Arlington time that are out and -- now that were fired surrogate did not mean that any new. It's like that'd facial recognition to photo tagging now when you upload and you -- -- FaceBook will basically examine it and then use facial recognition compared to other photos and then tried to like recommend tagging suggestions. That the upload and -- So -- you upload like. A bunch of photos already use the -- them. It's to make these -- -- you haven't tagged at saint what 3040 acres some bombing would have the -- they're just finally tell. People that use them these photo -- face recognition of -- -- users is that thing. I find -- story about this is everyone that used facial recognition there's always those people that it thinks you look like -- -- They can be men and sometimes they can be women there. And that's when the feature other data network is now -- mr. excel about the suspect to help you know really big Macs and you don't like -- euphoria really disturbing. Not all that come how they got -- out by believing him. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- All if you bought infinitely -- and it's actually I could actually I -- -- I actually think is really cool and I have finally come around to realizing that maybe the best thing about it but to me is the photo sharing in the at a tagging. And the fact that -- if someone comes to my house or party. I can -- them and they can see the pictures and their -- concede even if they might add another link and a party you have this makes I'm tagging myself from photos more of a full time job. That photo now there's a reason that it didn't -- myself and there is that -- that mr. You are going to be you will be opted in. She didn't rise in the future you'll be -- in. You'll be opted into this feature if you want to get out keeping go to customize settings and uncheck suggest photos of me to my friends. The new name will no longer the death and product tag only and -- that you manually. But you the other thing you can do is like one -- it suggests things -- as if the same person and this is what kind of mean that same person -- in. 33 photos you can just click a tag and then -- -- of those the -- antsy as long. Well they have a solution for you -- they do the reverse. The total tax paid for that event detect my face and I'm tactic that he -- you might find it should do that -- -- now would be Beasley. Antithetical to everything an -- -- cool new feature but. That would be -- unfortunately. They -- a feature will debut in the US in the next few weeks. I we have a passel of Apple news and Apple fires. The first of what could be many who knows. To rockets and an attempt to do you rail that CES -- They've announced that the Mac apps store will open for business on Thursday January 6. The week earlier than all the rumored. Militants against -- which would limit it. Not just be cleared -- lineup at a Mac store. You guys if you want you can lineup in -- -- your computer. But this is specifically the app store you -- timeout don't deprive them of their ability to the lineup and -- max the artist -- to celebrate -- the worship at the -- Mac. This -- and I I it. -- you you know I'm sure there's only one at least one person that might lineup at an Apple strength the dignity it says uses a date that the Mac app store with unbelievable. -- this is a meal though -- -- thing is it that can be news crews out in front of Apple. Ideally I'd bet people line up minutes that's gonna make a story Adam -- -- -- -- -- enthusiasm here I now believe that the appellate and that the Vietnam like if you well you any ethnic. -- -- We -- -- little about Mac app store if you don't remember it is the thing that will literally let you download free and paid apps cure aided. -- the iTunes store -- -- actual computer. Yet and alternatives go check out the city and Mac apps are level have any of the restriction that's what's become about a couple weeks yet if -- the cool -- and not even just yet. Cool ones are just apps literally says that they parity animals known on Google may be some thirty captain during that -- -- -- -- -- -- the opportunity -- Come out of the Mac app store will only be available to snow leopard users at lunch and then will of course come with -- There ago also -- -- according to Digi times doubled the times story here there are set to launch an upgraded MacBook Pro and iMac models in the first happened when he eleven. Yeah the first -- isn't really a surprise because that's more than seven or six months past the time that the last on the MacBook pros were launched before the back to school season some tidbits about this those that they said that the MacBook pros -- -- for. MacBook -- updated with potentially new form factors. I would assume -- -- and look more -- liked what we see in the MacBook Air not that slim but probably a lot like that and then the other thing is they mentioned that an iMac. Would have a different panel size and a new price point. For the mainstream market interest and missile may be a really low cost that's not. Many holidays -- -- now. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Amazing that a lot of -- out there and Apple TV but that it's time after reporting that Apple has added two additional touch panel makers -- -- and elect and -- To its touch panel supplier list for iPad to rule. Which would suggest hopefully -- fulfillment expenses instead of the moment problems when I've had to. Inevitably launches shortly after you but I've had one for Christmas and -- But the other nifty thing is that despite market report saying Apple's likely -- seven inch iPad as well as new iphones sources in the supply chain. Say they have not heard anything about orders for an instant. They've heard of seven point two it announced it had. But not evident that -- how much a part that that was -- it with you to confirm I mean it you know conflict. Steve Jobs was very clear and he has been very clear that the reverse them up on before. But it sounds like at some point they developed a seven inch tablet and Steve Jobs like now. Will work my friends in the on -- -- -- -- -- they were in about when the iPad was even mean third -- -- of the very very first. Version of it was a seven inch before -- existed and the very first mockup was a seven inch tablet so. You know it's been and that its plans all time yet -- -- put in their fingers in years tonight. -- -- -- -- They figure this one out and let the matter is I mean certainly all indications are that they decided they don't do you rate is interest -- people put their fingers in Dudamel. Anyone who's coming out the seven inch and -- tablet not stepping -- the Pennington can mean that -- Science. I really am -- it doesn't like the -- -- great it'll be your next smart phone could happen it couldn't you know I have no I think our -- -- it but it. But how will be a sudden death the other streak that if I've got the cyclical -- called them a long tablet -- you like. It is -- limit their millions of -- to get them -- -- what Donald like. Wind them up and a lot didn't go the -- on the mainland tablet that's. Media I thought as -- -- pretty -- actually -- -- Galen now animate original Aureus that's what collaborative. In other top news today Twitter has raised 200 million additional V fifty dollars on. From Kleiner Perkins with Kleiner Perkins being the lead investor no word yet on whether they're going to make any -- and it. It was funny I mean even remember last year there -- a report com that said that they might be in the black basically someone kind of like. I think with business -- they put together the numbers of you know. How much they're getting from their ad revenue but then failed to factor in like their overhead costs of employees know and so they still -- to -- they -- have not yet announced if there. Really actually proper ones right from what I gather. No I don't think at this point they still not -- that we are profit. Now I mean they're not talking about being like any give it the only thing about profit effort lately -- -- but -- -- -- -- you know cash. -- where revenue where and what of the popular positive test positive exactly know Twitter I think it's not that anything about it. And -- its earnings they continue to say we do totally planned to make money sometimes. We want to. And lest you think there is not a new tech bubble building that seems to be enough. Why is this is the micro -- although like it's just like Twitter -- now it's like everyone else. Then the bubble phenomenon beyond Twitter isn't as ridiculous is this it. Totally clear pile of money via this is just completely like 200 million dollars I mean they say you know okay it's gonna help -- expansion efforts. It worth -- we're telling the world that Twitter is not for sale we believe that -- -- We believe twitters it outrageous claims that -- 175 million registered users are not primarily -- which come -- they -- totally aren't I mean it's just. Maybe I will be proven wrong but I sort of feel like Twitter. Can't help but be a giant -- like I don't see them. Having a plane began its it and for -- from a financial sampling it. From yeah I mean -- thing you know I feel like there's no way for them -- -- helped -- along get more users and it's and then they'll just be MySpace you know. And -- and if they really wanna make any money right date they're gonna have to be acquired basically if they as a company that -- in and a and then I think that's where they really turn into my. -- -- I think you'll be acquired action to -- this for the prediction of an idea being probably acquired for way too much money and then to lead users to the next thing that's the I just don't Anderson that he and I to -- -- million -- happy here. When are you going to have a play him how many years -- -- take -- down unit daily but I don't know that that's enough is enough and that up. Let's take a quick break when we come back we're going to talk about supercomputers on jeopardy and a massive upgrade to being.

Holiday help desk Mondays at 1 PM Pacific time starting November 22 at cnet.com slash live. Welcome back to buzz out loud IBM's got a supercomputer but it's not what you might think of it's a -- compute supercomputer to compete in jeopardy and in jeopardy now a while ago IBM's people who grandchild project. The -- We know in their in the chess showdown of I don't know of of a lifestyle pages -- the ages in -- know what they're doing is they have a computer called Watson. And this time they're in an attempt to beat some of Jeffries most successful can't be him on TV this fall. Atlantis is a -- -- this a four year project they've been working on. And one of the difficulties -- challenges. The computer. It's -- it's been fed the questions it is listening to the questions that buy out the back so. Understanding interpreting the human language they understand in the context of it and then been able to process is that the information Google relies facet lawful and that's that's what you think pregnant and another candidate if not it's not connect to the Internet on their database of answers based on -- dictionaries. On you know maps documents and -- web generated you know information the more relevant but. On site. It does it all itself and I argument I thought this is just think the automated Google -- Quick hits a -- there. I definitely that. But the thing is it that the challenge is like -- said that natural language part of it like the way that did the jeopardy questions are -- sometimes the actual trivia. It's not that hard but they pose the question in this very complex or kind of trick of the link UK go to speak. The county and I totally is yet to be -- sometimes -- you know it's like those crazy -- public is where the answers -- deep within the syntax and that for a computer is like that's the ultimate -- test straight like. And it. Listen and respond the same way that -- that's pretty fascinating. Yeah they they tested it against some of the other you know an eternity champions -- -- see how would interact with I this is just amazing artificial intelligence when. An old days they use an example here because they said okay well how how does it really -- the contents of a lot times you know we topped. We like leave our statements -- open ended in kind of ambiguous -- we don't even close. -- -- cardiologist out -- -- like correcting it instantly forgets that key -- -- -- question yeah and out. And all -- yeah other -- it what's what's a smart about this thing though is that. Although it -- know how likely the answer is if it's not confident of it or it doesn't feel that the chances of the answer has are correct it's not going to buzz it. And that is still not winning and it can they talked about like what the big part of the game play of jeopardy -- don't answer the question if you're not serving as you get penalized for and so what can actually. Come up with the correct answer. But also as they maintain this great he -- with the creators and meaningful competence in the answer answer to then decide whether or not even attempt to -- Yeah its -- the lake it's just that I don't know it -- to imagine a computer having Vista I mean this is fully if this thing winds like. Game over rated as -- -- it has accomplished -- -- absolute human level I hope this Easter -- at the end of it does when you look like makes them look like -- -- smart -- they and then compared to some kind of self righteous stance. The I have to admit I like to be in Florida I kinda wanna see these guys that the actual jeopardy he doesn't go down Ken Jennings and Brad Ryder. I don't know about that much about Brad -- wrote a play like Ken Jennings -- low lying. Because he was tends and the smart you -- aren't the smartest guys in the -- always sometimes kind of -- -- party -- It that -- take the fun out the -- building and I Celsius also built like the rival Sean Connery but now think. That really make it interesting. It did so according to this thing it's going down in all January just right yeah there. A lot of -- and there. Any -- for terminator. As in this one instance if we and that totally less exciting newsmakers not to than building massive upgrade to the Bing search and -- You know target FaceBook integration mean like -- and the court search results improved mapping features you'll get maps of venues like shopping malls museums transit directions on. A check in function low -- -- -- for and a share your what I what I -- -- there's a novel idea. And then being. Vision which is -- -- camera viewfinder and you bring an object into it still it will detect attacks present -- -- letter tool to select -- for the -- and or and the market and in return third time that detects detects something is -- the that a whole bar -- we've seen but. India. Like a DR. All they can point your camera at any landmark and -- search for a nearby business. Actually really cool again. It does it still doesn't really answer the question why wouldn't you use Google -- -- using it but -- -- you know if you're using them -- like the Samsung fascinate and you don't have a choice exactly. Molly now remember that it then. -- I gotta say that did not into the question of when -- -- Google and I'm. Its -- images -- it like if they're going to ports themselves onto your phone infantile this the ultimately be enlightening. They also hit all time market -- high in November it was up. -- Over a much overhead. But -- the best -- -- -- -- -- to what -- the eleven point 8%. I think marketshare an all time amateur eleven point 8%. So there's still hanging. I -- go. I mean honestly let's seal -- -- flavor so old they also mention that if you combine -- score with Yahoo! because right Yahoo! is now using being. There are certain use phenom the actual -- engine search would go up to 20%. Which is pretty significant. And Bing is not gonna take -- down anytime soon but they've done a very good job of marketing -- to the masses where you where even though Google is the main thing they've been about ways to make a little -- They have ninety million users using being that's pretty significant. And then yeah yeah it'll go away still does the Zune didn't Apple's iPod yeah yeah absolutely and this decapitated by making people use it to what is the way to do it exactly -- I would love you let the -- I mean I would love to see their dollars per user in in other countries because it. The amount that they must be paying for product placement -- advertising and mean it really is. Will once they stop spending will they be able to keep and you -- getting paid seeking right now via. Bing -- -- -- limiting it. Including that theory that -- not that -- If CBS -- remote and of birds like. I was on the -- -- -- -- -- everywhere it's on every showed us at this time. In other news for Microsoft I. Has bumped to the -- and time hours or up -- 99%. In Microsoft funded study the they -- -- -- -- that I. Was born and now -- for now so this app -- application reputation they use like a hash tag identifies the file contents and then a -- it. I'm against other you know dot. Of ones that okay they're gonna let -- or ones that they're gonna warn you of may match it up also arm against you know all of the other quote unquote browsers. And on the -- I blocked -- -- percent of them what they did. 636 malware distributing sites that they ran against them IE eight. Block 90% Firefox warn users of just 19%. Of the same sites will safari Chrome and opera. Percentage. Warnings 113 answer the. Zero yeah -- opera down interest and I mean that's a little unfair because Microsoft has created a list of. Apps that -- I look at my web site that gravity meditation period but I am sure they're not like the most. I'm assuming they're not the most obscure ones -- I -- -- at least -- they would pick up some stuff via absolutely sending. We will always be wary of a headline that basically says Microsoft has -- -- -- them however. There you have it yeah I mean IE nine is definitely and some good. One click note here they said in -- the Firefox safari Chrome opera anti malware blocking they were land Google's own safe browsing API in their scores dropped. -- between ten -- -- since the last test. -- like Microsoft this kind of picking itself up acting like -- horrible I use and after these. You got now Windows 7 by nine like an hour to do it'll do not track button thing they ask no I mean they they they are actually -- -- kick in about anyway I just sent. Windows phone seven lake in May -- this -- -- gonna -- -- well you know I like it now. Just Microsoft plays along and that's -- deal. YouTube is an interesting story it looks like YouTube is in talks to buy next new networks. Which is a web video production company seeming to suggest that YouTube might be getting into creating original content. And -- -- this. I'm gonna -- if you like like you even like this story I like it out and. You -- -- I want to -- ordinary Canadians on new I want I want I like watching quality content I don't mind watching you know the dog skateboarding once in awhile but you know for YouTube -- the pilot we've been talking about early years offers you know. Diversify what you have sure they're still making boatloads of money up people putting up -- for Frieden and -- their ads to written but if they you know to actually have high level. Production quality content on their. I would I would appreciate that adamant that pilots and that -- It's changing their model ultimately yes I got a living I didn't like it -- It likely that says drum up a little bit roaming up and really that's not what you do you don't you know you're on the business of creating and distributing content and -- business of distributing content that. I know that's not how well are there because they'd -- In the -- -- do you like video rentals -- -- have different to natural networks have -- channels of content on there on -- the I'd like to know -- this idea has been spun off the that the success of those efforts but it hasn't -- them. -- -- But at that I would never like wanna Stein is coming from just trying -- have the ability that -- -- -- -- are probably trying to find another way to spend -- taxed on it I mean when you. Look at kind of all of the things that Google is involved with and all the things that they keep getting having -- partly to. If Google the search company and you have to you know you have to at this point acknowledged that YouTube is part of Google the search company there. Database of video. If they get into content creation like as soon as Google gets -- content creation I feel like things start to get really fuzzy in a hurry in just the same way that we talked about. Like is it okay for Comcast's -- NBC and potentially be offering you like. Internet bundle that includes enhanced contact list in an ironic -- late morning at Apple and Google also as the the company -- Android company then. And Android as an -- as the competitive I'll less. -- OS has iTunes they've got there there there media -- corner -- -- is totally. You know -- like no no way to compete against that except you know I mean with -- came out the tab that was the whole thing -- need this like Samsung media hub. Where they don't try to add that their own version of what iTunes has it on the ratios among -- Google doesn't really have that yet in -- -- except for there -- YouTube app. In YouTube's. If they can make something that's a little bit stronger offering it to see it competing against what Apple has just offering or even been able to lockdown agreements to make some sort of robust media store. -- -- that's what -- and we've been hearing now on the music front for Obama to that seems like it's even closer to happening if they're gonna have much more. He announced on music offering them -- -- like -- now it's okay you don't have -- -- YouTube also I think that's the right thing and that's the -- -- avenue home page and looked. There -- similar -- companies. I haven't pulled up here that down you know they're going through January that it is God's gonna show yeah definitely let have a combined list now -- -- your subscription your friend activity. And your recommendations into this one easier to analysts and then -- -- of the subscription upload Abbott the only one thing that channel guide to. It says that you'll never miss a videos of metallic look Spore videos and today the all for absolutely this video. You can delete anything. If you don't wanna watch it the connect -- -- graded out so videos URD -- if they have like a red. A red message feature but if -- has the party wants to be great out -- you know where you left off botanical looking public key you. You can refine things -- -- watch -- an easier inbox and then you can watch older videos without leaving home page that making it a little making it much more of a sort of. Your personalized media experience instead of just their endless everyone's looking -- the plant -- -- -- FaceBook application of the homepage that he's a fun. Yeah it's interesting that they are trying to really make it. So much more in just like -- -- coming here for the content that I'm interested in not just like to browse her it is you know it's it's. -- in though because of the same time that's lit and when I ability to I mean you got it yet. And plan ahead and when I go to -- like I mean sure I'm one systemic irrelevant -- to me was all like mine up. Randomly like let's look at this video willingness and there isn't into the death of the viral video -- I'm not. No home yet it's the -- into each other once you start on Monday the recommended videos via online can burn. They told me some hired anywhere. It just looks like from -- -- -- it just because a lot more of the videos -- channels you subscribe to you which is okay. -- Bad news for all of these city -- if you. They created crop circles and build giant gingerbread houses and apparently -- -- freezing lake and plan attacks. I ordered to try to seriously gonna -- seriously she says that I'm not kidding and -- In order to try to get Google to roll out ultra high speed broadband in their town. -- has delayed its decision. On the -- piper community selection until early 2011 -- that there were. Too many applicants of -- One yes -- worth it. All the mayors he just did that for fine but no relation to the school experience that -- -- -- -- -- about this than they Gigabit per second broadband network that at literally any -- you cannot use this story than things that people are doing that. Like one town built -- -- -- auto leveling and it made the agency from it and -- but has found that lets and a -- the effect of the -- Donald in the present content. And this would be felt sad -- -- -- actually got her place shark and it's got this news. The -- Corel has been delayed if recovering some hospital somewhere or something like halo and everything good for -- town -- lake. Really yeah and and I even -- right here's the highlights for is out now remember this Google Kansas renamed themselves the capital city power. Yeah okay but I say Duluth Minnesota the mayor Don -- jump to the Lake Superior in just a T shirt and shorts and they -- -- other mayors you want Google fiber you jump and a Lake Superior. That's what he said and in Sarasota Florida. Cities on Google this is where on the mayor Richard Clapp jumped into a shark tank to -- his dedication -- The thing is dedicated that I really like this -- at my only immoral pancake means that. So I can say yeah yeah like you know -- We're naming CNET at town and we're building a pancake made -- can be seen from space but what would you do you really Internet speed a hundred times the speed you have for free what would you seriously what -- plummeted. -- and you know I did not know you get what that firemen audio let me. What you'll want. Hello I tell -- -- in my town to lower their expectations. Has not commented that. I'm gonna look like what cellular has what's available now on the same -- -- that felt and how -- -- an -- -- -- -- your town they -- they deserve -- -- set up. -- use the Internet so much. I love the vague possibility that they Google I just -- to imagine that Google evolving punk Pirillo. There is no cyber attacks Rolla they're not -- I think it's one -- the likely yield management again it. -- virus and is before we go a German computer. Expert computers. Like virus expert has analyzed the -- net code the program code and the effects. Of that virus and determined that the virus probably -- -- -- Iran's nuclear program. By two years he says it was nearly as effective as a military strike but even -- and there are no fatalities from the virus and know full blown war has from a military perspective. It was a huge success. And we talked about this last week of basically. The recommendation was emperor to scrap and throughout all of their computers and essentially service -- would get dad just get on that. What I had better start raising he also said that them they and -- analysts also found that they think the stack that warm probably took several years to develop. And that it was unquestionably. In their opinion a government project either Israel or the -- -- -- -- Still ugly as this that we -- -- from that two years of new company mapping app project on -- they're not -- this means some angry people have let engineers -- their lack -- ready -- on -- it doesn't have. It's gonna under I mean virus -- as you know whether it actual virus or computer virus like it's scary business to -- -- because you cannot control -- -- -- -- in the wild and we suspect -- Wreaking all kinds of havoc I mean it was declared in of the biggest threat to institutions -- -- Institutions in the countries where it was infecting computers like crazy so it's it's scary -- -- have. All right -- transition over to look what that's. Apple iTunes receiving an update ten point one point one -- it was supposed to fix crashing you know when bugs -- it appears that it's. Now also causing crash scene and leaving some users and able to open up their applications. Still like what you know that that 96 meg download. As totally worth it. It's so that I usually freaked out -- refused to data I don't and drag on even as the guys in charge of those reviews sometimes my god -- -- really do now I -- and I let all the updates pass for a couple months of a pain now and I -- -- -- -- is -- don't -- yet another -- that they must -- his -- just letting us -- wait is over at the -- -- is officially available in the US we talked about this earlier -- against Google considered it just threw her land because they wanted to know that -- officially confirming. That is on sale today. Through best buy and best buy mobile stores across the US and online. It sold unlocked it to be bought for 529 with out a service plan 199 with a T-Mobile service plan. Also invest by related news they mysteriously halted the sale of Verizon's Droid two global Android throw this report -- boy genius report there's. Rumors that -- might be price -- disagreement but at the end of the day best buy as much in the -- anymore. Yet started to see they said that they may be best I was undercutting Verizon's prices. In. In store in store and then you know violating an agreement with President -- though people may be we're getting -- -- payment. At -- -- -- that I speed rumors let's do a little short rumor mill -- It's like stamp that out yeah I like that. DirecTV. Marketing at research -- seems to suggest the possibility. That the NFL Sunday ticket. Could become available over -- -- -- you couldn't see that you're. The trainer and an idea a little -- yeah lock unlock and could be available long -- my Apple TV Boxee. And Blair. But pop up also on your iPad or other -- connected tablet when. I. Or on your Smartphone the -- this would be the an early bird. -- -- -- -- They if it will move if it happens everyday photo frame digital NFL Sunday ticket for potentially -- it looks like about 1999. Per weekend as streaming plan for union company -- other. Device. It's the only major sports league at least in the US that's that doesn't have an online digital service yet -- BA NHL -- they all do it now. The -- an -- now hold that stuff really tight so -- yes there pain in a day. Anyway of if that happens to be pretty. Because I have to admit sports as one of the only reason to hang on and in the chat -- with -- that's -- -- -- the AT&T regulation and today. Then and it is like Yemen didn't you also tweet about signing up for an already done. Copy it and saying Natalie for cable but more if you're cable provider that they did not dot paper -- deepen -- -- -- and the average user real thanks -- nothing at Philip skipped the cricket by the way which is that Google TV gets updated with Netflix dual view and an Android app. But still no actual I was wondering if you're gonna go back the night at the you know it's called -- -- -- update though it's gonna have voice. Recognition that's control. And now how good their voice can you correct in that is pretty the if -- how many tickets Leo's ETV -- and might be in my -- Don't press the button. Onto the judge -- -- Out and it -- -- owners and -- -- the -- and about that the algae optimist to act is now official it is that. The first dual cores Smartphone. And it onto it and you're at a four inch display and 1080. We really. Battery life nine minute. But not really -- -- Gained thirteen year growing and growing and -- at Listerine in -- side burns constant the -- keep recording time exact -- Handwriting and optimize to take advantage of to court orders that is like handling foundation for that -- out that come out. Features at an audience in Nielsen media -- knows I mean. As they -- he might he have one core -- and a -- -- out. Had that though -- we're totally get in about the battery the battery life -- -- chat room when we talked about -- before the battery life optimization actually that's been better with dual core because it uses less power and need less power and in. Maximize the power when he needs now is probably the -- on the last. With the it is -- -- the -- that the that is the real question is what you know and is Android two point to optimize we'll we'll have to get into -- It says. That it will launch with Android two point gain but -- committed to releasing Internet updates. In -- course. Don't know and it's getting under the US by the way it -- is gonna start it's gonna launch in Korea next month. Then Europe and another in the house anglers that is the only real learning -- outbursts all get the hang out my Droid X for at least a few more months.
