Ep.1390: Pentabular screws and the bourbon fairyOn today's show, Brian Cooley kindly drops in to keep the streak alive -- with bourbon! Also, to discuss one analyst's counter-intuitive assessment that the Nintendo 3DS is priced too low. Well, I suppose it is, if you're a shareholder. But we're happy....
Thursday January place. When you look. And it is results. I'm Donald bell pie in Hollywood closet about fell -- because I -- indeterminate length episode thirteen 190. Brian Tong and fill on the beach in Hawaii which we're not mad about it often. -- I don't care. Actually we don't care and Donald and frankly this week they -- -- on -- -- anytime soon we are united and burn up wanna be a dear Abby has no use for me it'll simpler yet. Yet we really -- -- bride. And -- and the thing funnier pub that floppy. If you can't audit it and I love I. Meyer said grandpa. People are excited about it especially because we have a whole little passel of tablet news and we've been tested due mostly ignoring. IPad two rumors all week. Ignored iPad two rumor roundup. I have ignored new rumors. But that is blunt is anti can ignore them -- the the latest apparently -- that Apple's developer release of violent or -- beta two. Provide -- even more in visual evidence confirming that the next iPad will carry a front facing camera. Apparently there is a daytime. Icon and Apple camera app icon and a photo -- app icon. So yea nothing innovative I mean out. All those are kind. If -- Apple hasn't done before and I mean really when -- the very first one came out. There they took it apart like -- expert gamer and you're gonna enter the biggest rumor of all would have been think there's gonna be printed and an. Well -- -- all the other tablet makers right apparently one. It didn't know they they got if they're holding on the board G -- great -- -- I like HDMI out ray you know we've got older data. -- and there's still there's literally sell much speculation and back and forth about the resolution. On the screen that refuse even. -- that and that's human numbers for me in an audience. Has nobody seems to know I read like a more -- And feels like -- Q where it's not like people are really on the fence about. Whether the iPod and iPad is gonna via breakout product and camp I thought something against it made up late 87 and of these figures it was -- -- Bentley 87%. Tablet sales. And you know like -- with. It's the one. -- hopefully they'll be better competition next year and hopefully that second generation will be able to step up to that competition. But it's not like. Is gonna be there the one little killer app that they might include that he is gonna make or break whether you buy it -- going to be the iPad right -- -- it like. Being slightly feature. Deficient compared to the competition had never -- right. Exactly I hope they dragged their feet I hope they do something -- slip -- and gives you give the competitors the chance they catch up and. Make something cool the other without but an interesting actually Alan at lets you take -- -- and then apply filters to them. I'll all of the coolest apps in the world right now make them in the -- and in the one against them and their different ones -- Other platforms they don't have what they never did that one where you can you could. -- the Star Wars hologram effect. With my abatement. Forget that keynote years ago Whitney introduced. -- the the ability to fill in the black background behind you when you're doing. Lake -- your voice a year video chat really yet and -- -- hang. I'm gonna let him again and a animator they did they pulled that old -- -- have that now -- photo Booth. And mechanical -- But bad news for -- Graham. And all those apps that are right now at least right now making a killing being you know making your from the crappy -- Photo is one -- -- advancing at an. And ethnic photo Booth I'm on my on -- looks -- -- -- -- is always fun when you when you get a new open happy take pictures of yourself indicator whenever and then you never -- and using it yet taken out of the -- and I quote. And -- not -- the photo Booth yet. But -- -- it is now all but confirms. The non news is that the the iPad -- almost certainly have a camera. Yet though no rumors on when again that there were expecting -- -- some kind of announcement by the end of the quarter. HTC so in other -- news on from Digi times ago in Bernal although they have access to that the players. It times reporting that HTC plans to launch three tablets in the first half a 2011 a flier that they would start shipping in the US market. In March and would be basically like a big version of the HTC desire Smartphone and run Android 2.3. It says it will -- -- -- in cooperation with -- Telecom carrier. Aiming to push sales ahead. Of the planned launch of rams playbook in March and Motorola zoom in April. According to the great I wish they'd done this last year I wish that I asked them directly I think age at CES. It if you going to make it and appreciate now you don't like Molly Wood -- and -- -- -- -- you dive. Awkwardly dimmer -- you can you tell me that truth. But it does however it seems like the way that they're gonna try to get it out the door before the playbook and to do it that the Zune man is by not waiting for any -- that they're gonna -- 2.3 on it and and let you upgrade to three point now. Okay. Well. The bride and the street you know I have black well. And -- uses the stupid history campaign. -- the -- -- that. 51 day I. Not out I -- the one -- is -- it's a legitimate state. Oprah because methods 51 days and -- and I mean I think it's probably like only thirty days since last that a dream I've been conditioned. I am right. Brian Cooley and that but -- Alberta and don't handle -- -- entitles the fact that we're drinking in the studio does not mean silent leaping ahead. Imagine others five really it's just because it's there and until he's writing and -- from in one it would be that would be taken otherwise that's okay okay -- are high but they've only heard it right means truly scared it's okay if they don't dying not me you and -- -- -- -- -- on celebration of whoever now. In case you missed yesterday -- -- do not know what in the blue Glickman happening in this. 88. -- statistic. -- minded reader listener noted that and less. One of the Bryant's shot in today we would break a streak of fifty shows in a row that absolutely name Brian on -- -- -- this. The beautifully -- who kept track of that it's like while I would so this is the fiftieth. 51 okay we've review -- movement moving through the -- now into the next level. Okay -- -- indicated -- down here but tomorrow -- -- -- -- probably the case technicality we've worked out complete BS again we created an epic -- all if you will begin tomorrow the -- is going to be produced from New York as a special episode. It's gonna be like. Ackerman and -- -- and Jeff Bakalar doing a New York buzz out loud. But then that's not happening here into the feature any regular real BO. -- It's not a -- lot of Veoh will be free -- wells so it. So things really easily we don't want to screw up beta right -- while you're at it well we know about it. This is covered the living mean in -- -- -- three years you'd like. It's becoming more important as it happens -- just be Brian out loud still trying to become important. -- -- going to be that important. I think -- -- They must know somebody named Brian in your right right it's got to deliver on its own random strangers not does you good -- -- -- gonna at all there's gotta be like you say. Orders are happening on Friday that it and the mail room up here but he's somebody but the cranky -- -- the lobby before we -- -- Brian I have got I don't care that Poland ran up the street now a matter of math and now I don't. But the thing if they don't it doesn't matter we can specialist and then again. -- -- -- -- -- -- I haven't seen in order to really keep the street bowling -- put in -- historic. I got it is walking your liquor and you're good. -- do and those kind are thought I -- I. I don't wanna crank out practice volume that you need to ask if it really unbelievable reliable -- where developers say. Has admitted to me of how do you -- that much -- all right. So this would surprise me. We talk about the DS coming out the previous -- yesterday at 249 march 27. I think we have a lot -- on it hit the market we didn't know that before. The business researchers know what some now Wall Street who says I'm surprised by the price I don't open this thing up -- like I'm being he thinks it's never gonna solitude for united too much you know it's it's fairly straightforward single purpose device very cool -- it but. He says no their -- go to the money on the table -- -- England ordered three. If the why they're practically giving it away 250 dollars it effectively and Sierra -- right. You know what this -- its way to consumer friendly. It's literally what basically yeah it's not shareholder friendly -- know consumers are gonna love it leaving money on the table. You'll actually sell them. But says it all good patriot boxes right he's great. -- no public I think people would definitely in the hype cycle but long term and this is classic and and that is what to do what we would like 200 dollars are sold out they sold out in months no one could get one yeah and it became this giant picture -- it was gonna happen but we also came out before there is that can act before there is the PPI and any other console had a kind of motion controlled game that is the first meeting. Abbott I think for as far as hand held game is concerned to very different -- in a varied from place now like. Android atlas games and we were in the -- -- lock on. And -- game at an outlet there is that -- factor how partisan right take it. It is cheaper than I thought it was going to be. No -- I thought it was gonna be 300. By 299. United and error and downturn nothing -- days of the guys I -- -- -- in the once they get this the demand on the depth review discounted product I'm surprised because the -- assume it's just game. Doesn't do anything on stream media that has the three cameras. As a pre -- but it really only for gaming and it's not like you're gonna you can take native Wikipedia -- -- I'll definitely have an Apple think it didn't even though. Probably yeah yeah okay and noted that. We have what it was an amazing -- -- -- -- -- An -- that we -- larger than. It is not new content you didn't ever again okay -- Blogger idol champion Joey and of these bands that go out if it's a got a -- hard on that -- -- -- burglary while you are all outstanding I frankly I think it you know now would be probably independent. An anti burglary fell will be right back I -- -- mother and. That Cogent analysis of the Nintendo 3-D S I think has brought you read them special batch of urban and only -- -- beacon endeavor and thankfully it that we're gonna have a great show from now on -- -- bank who claimed that brings more and a -- A wagon -- that the -- breaking story anymore although I will say just for the record -- -- -- -- -- -- other big news of the day at least early this morning we had a whole discussion yesterday about how to pronounce the name because it's not it's not actually. It's not right but he says that -- -- and have and the -- like either him -- his parents didn't wanna go -- the -- Telling people actually -- anyway the dissent by justice pathway linked Favre hadn't -- You can't -- because there's no you can't -- MA if there's not an accent. It's just not correct. It can Canadian Allison that in print. And it thickened and implication that it. That we have let this thing is then mine -- -- -- image spam that empathy. Game. They come and get -- demand then all the that's enough. Public stopper -- And I'm gonna -- the name on it okay moving on in fact is Google Voice apparently. Offered and then rule he removed it. This feature that would let you port your own phone number for twenty. Fully ported over bully -- -- over and already had that you separate Google Voice number or maybe he gave Google Voice to handle your voice mail on your phone that you can actually get that -- actually about to -- boys via now twenty dollars. We'll get used your phone number ported over to Google Voice completely and break -- contract to be careful. It will break -- exactly that -- the one -- to worry about if you think you -- Could be Donald bell on the out of contract and he waited for something like this that jump on can you get what -- you and how closely. -- blow up. -- -- I don't know at. Yeah let's do you think it is only a twenty dollar option to leave the ground realize that if you do -- you are breaking a contract you what -- -- when you port number you're effectively canceling. Your current contract that dude if -- out of contract or honestly I mean. In some ways your contract is throwing good money after bad -- If you have it pro rated down it like a hundred -- there's something that might just be a payment or Q and you're gonna stop making -- payment that might only be and I am assuming. Maybe incorrectly that she could -- it back over to -- -- on it doesn't work out now. I would think that many many so I hope you do that if you port Mac and -- and I'm. Just proceed with constantly be really sure that you wanted to -- And also and you know that it -- it popped up on the Google Voice options and then -- away they say that they're still testing it. And group life and in Canada it's pretty and -- so -- that parties. I mean especially -- as. The number of people actually making voice calls anymore is shrinking week to week -- like it's could be the answer let's just. Take voice calling off the table -- given over -- -- -- And then we just have our data plan and it's not being locked into place there are other data only -- yet for -- now. Incredibly alive that were relating cares away with you for allowing no of the like -- -- all data only plan right of -- -- -- -- You a lot of times when you ask why they have it happen that -- did -- I know. -- -- We do an amber hello. And and in fact Alex and data -- -- like threaded habit forever hitting records aren't might actually be that good carrier looks like T-Mobile has won through for another -- Verizon -- okay. While the -- that's a good idea. There is in the -- data only plan for iPad. -- Yet they should just like you Tito says he does admit that they're -- to impact the whole thing that -- And then. I was on picnic yesterday and I southern pole like get an Amazon 2.0 Amazon gift card for ten dollars. And then in my friend -- -- the -- -- -- like three you do this and making -- the deal for free to buy books from my classroom you know like I'm not gonna do that but also -- accurately ultimately -- this. -- -- -- -- And -- it did you know the tech community exploding with a freaking genius that is living social. Which had been offering that's ten dollars off at twenty dollar Amazon purchase. And then apparently they've sold a million. Of these Amazon gift cards for twenty million dollars in total -- -- it in -- it blew up it was like. The Internet decided yesterday that it's okay if everyone really -- their friends all together and decides to jump in on this -- well. I think we all do it it's fine but -- actually I wouldn't have known about otherwise and that is pretty the great cell out of one mile. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 103 dollars. And I was nervous and at an apartment so living social Amazon recently invested a 175 million dollars. In this company image though there you know they're able to give them these kind of special deal. And you know that when they sell. A million Amazon gift -- they're gonna make. And -- -- nobody in about -- -- only counseling I mean authority money spent basically an -- party picked like in nonstick and the costs thirty. Now Apple or I'll get it -- -- Anyway living specialty group on competitors though if they keep up stuff like fifth. Nicknamed it can have it could prove to be a genius -- -- Amazon. Also ingenious news. And -- Angry Birds people they have hit the freaking jackpot. Though they'd like your grip on every plant arm and Angry Birds like she used a in the Motorola but that the F and they were having a drawing for a gigantic Angry -- -- The Hutu in the kind of stuff animal it was one of when your kid can actually crashing the progress -- and he's that it was like the most popular part of the. The belief that had as soon matrix or believe they didn't -- I got Angry Birds who made salad because how awkward -- think that's a different convention and night arcades. -- But the any -- and the hits keep coming for angry red it was only this much urban. It's it's not the -- yet it movement isn't them -- -- yet. A Gerber at is about to become an animated years. Apparently boom -- Rovio plans to turn it into a television. -- -- he did tell the British TV industry saying he doing media dot net that we don't know if it can apparently only in the UK. Or what but that is there and that farm bills mean acts with the mafia wars and the -- now -- are among -- okay. You might be able to -- typing in the network bigoted and they could -- veggie tales and just put like a few more to help our farm. Type things -- man with no no no no way. I. Greedy Angry -- movie in development -- Probably and I'm sure it is in the magic of Reading are stripped out there. This is that -- kind of makes -- I mean this is it's it's right for this is fertile ground to make -- -- -- Yeah I mean because -- actually. I was thinking about it like -- tell Libya about a minute I actually -- and one with the Mac -- fact that at. And if there's no dialogue noted that -- I don't. Have. In and this is gonna get cartoon -- -- -- are collected for now applicable to kind of violent. It's -- area I'd let the TVs the characters don't recognize no swearing street I don't want to know what happened. Would have -- -- and how did they manage to do anything considering that their heads only. It's hard that it's hard to -- up like a bird -- when you don't have any arms. They made -- animated scenes -- add on in gummy bears in the eightieth straight -- this is much more. Relevant than that. It is again yeah I would fill out watching in value of the compares the now nine in the -- that -- mentioned baby monkey mania. And its parent that might have heard. From now on really I know we can't. I -- news for Nokia Internet that's enough having fun and the show now. Serious now in -- it's bad news yet another setback for Nokia the Finnish mobile phone giant has canceled. The US release of the act in which was gonna be an exclusive to AT&T and one of their flagship. Touch screen Smartphones. -- Long. Home menu. Thea yeah I know that there are and always have been Nokia defenders but when even the Wall Street Journal says it leaves Nokia further behind in its effort to correct the major strategic weakness. It's poor showing in the US market. And I think that where I'm -- like you'd like -- you've been doing. They must just be watching their sales -- is dry up data day and night. All the lies in the -- themselves about their strengths -- You know on Smartphone market now and secondly it is so far -- now and now and it's smaller. It can only -- -- -- specialists and really the department market the only growth market right now I mean every you know the the feature phone market is pretty well saturated. Smartphones are a huge growth opportunity in the US. And they're just not present they're basically now in the US only present with an eight which has no carrier support. -- released the X seven with going to be one of the few Nokia's mark and it may be the only one in recent memory. That had carriers of this nation but the -- eight although it you know a really great phone. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now as bad news of bad news -- but good news for each account -- like Donald. Actually -- really carry -- -- -- -- later he's in Iraq that's right I does that hit notepad have -- Smart -- -- oil in this march 1 at the part -- Now actually I've been I've been rocking the windows that -- -- for the past week. You come and -- the modern world that you -- they need it but new low tech mobile site. Although this is a brilliant move but if but -- in it nevertheless -- would still like to see them improve their smart -- -- but they have launched basically a feature phone compatible version of FaceBook. And then you have an iPhone or windows phone 700. You get a tablet probable pick it. And helps them out of that Redmond. Has come and the last story authority of India -- lake -- though all those feature phones that it may for the elderly. They can get on FaceBook now. And mobile phone that's actually pretty good because the data plans are the reason that most people aren't life -- on and there are countries that don't have data on. Data fees than in the can access the phone and it optimizes for lower and cell -- they -- it provides a better FaceBook experience. For our most popular features including easier in a million homes green contact synchronization -- -- photos and updates. Honestly I might use this on my mark on it and let me because that actually pay her there with African dog. -- the dog like half the time it doesn't load at all it takes for ever to go through photos I want I want to optimize. Maybe yeah maybe Nokia issued a school its heels in this way for the return of the dumb phone movement in May be able. The Smartphone thing will run its course and then there's gonna be this. Announced that it can geometry surgeons can't. The introduction of duck -- just like I'll go and they didn't. And the beauty at Motorola -- like maybe it's got Disney on ice pack and put toward its -- Android phones they are sticking with apparently their strategy of locking down Android now. Motorola has the EU's technology built in which will in essence. Brick your phone if it detects that you have if you're running an Opera Software such -- like an unauthorized rom. Or an authorised version of the standard operating systems -- you know it feared that. As many Android users are now at least in these early Dayton the type who wants to review found -- put on whatever custom rom. You want. Motorola. If you this is actually like a tweet from from. The matter up at the official -- account and Motorola employee it says quote if you wanna do custom roms -- buy elsewhere we'll continue with our strategy that is working. Thanks. For what you'll see -- -- -- on Motorola saying like look we want to be the maker of the definitive. And Android. Smartphone and -- acting in a lot of consumers minds may he'd draw laid. An Android. And all the Droid commercials that are the -- Motorola commercials and they kind of think of that as the Android phone yeah you know. And I think -- playing to that and I think having that that little. Now part of the phone that -- -- -- and bricks the phone. Do something other than their prescribed version of what -- -- should be is going -- that motivation. Yeah I can see that and I might buy that argument if it weren't if they didn't have like the moto blur custom UI on top of it if they were actually. Making them access. And saying look this is the most recent version Mandarin all the time minutes you know -- and unfettered Android and trust me it's the best you can get -- you want and what they're really saying is. We have moto blur we have are customized version. We join -- estimate that probably -- don't support it. But I don't I if you root your phone you void your warranty anyway. Let the -- thing about how Motorola. Have claimed the name Droid -- of people people he recalled non Droid -- -- now and and -- And like we were questioning their decision to pay Lucas about for the name and now it's -- totally came -- it seems like there brand is. And right -- Android is their breath and don't think. Via a negative in some -- and I think they're probably transit but but then who cares right can't even though it's not is that it's not of their. One person who reached their own and put the custom rom on it if we go around and convince everyone else that they shouldn't financing company had a crappy thing. You know yeah -- -- it is it is an appellation -- Right now county is something I about a -- down to like look we're protecting the consumer. I preventing them from screwing up all the awesome work we did you know to make this a good experience. It really means that if you if you really want to your problem -- -- -- prominent and I -- generally don't get a Motorola. I mean. I personally I don't care that I wanted it I don't like Nina I never wanted to jailbreak an iPhone and I panic I don't like to be in a running gunbattle with my manufacture and it. But I preferred then to buy the phone that at least offers me. As much as I can get Writely can not gonna take -- totally -- Samsung phone well. At least I can install a custom launcher on -- Motorola on the gets rid of my -- You know I mean it's not like I can tweak it enough that I'm happy with -- to read it though the paper it's okay. Although I don't -- -- -- built up they. It but well within their purview. This week we are complaining about how Netflix that I feel like I got my first -- Netflix. That was so mad about how they won't let me manage my dvd -- on my mobile now that that's just a lame. And stupid and -- Although. Then there -- the story today that said that Netflix pays twenty times more and postage per movie. That it doesn't end with the basically cost them twenty times more -- deliver you a dvd. Then it does to stream -- movie. Which would kind of explain why. They want to push with portraits in a notably that like my local post office -- the box just forget FF act and did I think got a better I -- they got energy I mean that's actually probably taking into account the fact that they get a cut rate deal via verbal. -- double the -- Giuliani had the bad for the post office. Of Adobe's. We'll we'll be do it over to a streaming only version and then some many. It did -- I'm sure they've got dedicated Netflix handlers in the and there Regina you know what I got through email I got the Netflix is apparently I think Netflix -- probably propping up the postal and publicly on assuming you know they. -- they're getting a lot of money from just Netflix. But. It does it still not gonna buy that argument that thinking girls meaningfully different about them. -- like I get it it's great that it's more cost effective but nobody is gonna pay anything for it if they can't watch what they want -- content asking yeah exactly. Hopefully. Spotted is going to start you know getting making -- actually get. Launched that -- -- -- almost out -- a boycott talking about I think that there. As it did it's that to tech unicorn but. Last week New York Post reported a spot I was close to -- Sony deal and now. Although Sony declined to comment. All things. US -- -- -- Do not that there are launching now that I know there one -- are closer to -- -- Which is literally all of the lip service plan from them and I mean by -- time it happens. I mean I'm sure will happen. Either after or at the same time that Apple will have some kind of subscription service -- is. -- in Google or Amazon. Care yeah. And they don't care we all agree that we don't care of about -- Amazon has apparently purchased load. Which I totally out the dirty movie service but the great name company -- but it's not. It is evidently the Netflix in Europe. And Amazon bought them for 200 million dollars. All right that news for people who are so excited that they were gonna get a Playboy app. On the iPad that was going to be and censored and have all of the back catalog and then also they were gonna get to crow about Apple's hypocrisy. Now now turns out a Playboy iPad app -- easily get when you actually listen to. Hugh Hefner -- or yet -- follow up and I asked them about them what it is if -- in India web. If the -- as well it's going to be a iPad you why ask. You know web app right ray is gonna be -- -- app. Now it's not. They are gonna have a centered -- a non nude app that will be submitted the Playboy spokesman for the article article that yeah but there. And bikini pictures of the. -- you want immunity on the iPad he thought to go to the Internet like you did the start at. Microsoft says that a third party application is the reason behind that windows phone seven -- -- -- is apparently a lot of people were reporting. That they were burning through their data allotment in super short time. Even when they were connected to Wi-Fi. And they were blaming windows phone seven. Specifically Microsoft gently determine -- third party solution commonly accessed from windows and is configured in -- manner the potentially thousands larger than expected data downloads. In a -- if they want but if they're looking into -- gonna. Great now we know it takes economies -- -- -- now again. How do you like it. If -- has been filed and a neat is neat haven't don't dive into a lot of the it. And -- and much to dive into that it does look at this lot of -- to do with it and it is. It it behaves is very -- is everything I loved about the Zune polished interface. And -- armies and HDCs around version of our recruitment and a I think if you were picked out of the student Hayden and. And you think it. I got your cricket for today and -- year super short little windows on an ingredient. -- -- -- -- This is just. If I had to grant date is what it is the that there are reports that Apple is quietly rolling out. Not content with proprietary software hardware him. Totally and -- and ideally totally un hackable ecosystem Apple is also apparently quietly rolling out a new type of screws. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Prevent users from tampering with -- opening up the iPhone four is a high chance they say play a single I turn up in the iPhone -- -- exactly. That day I remember -- being kind of weird that the iPhone four in this first -- picture's coming at the show that had screws in the dock new dock connection. And we had they had those is that that. Other B may be exposed do they use this -- on the certificate torque wrench kind of do that they use -- laptop is removing your replacement hard drive. But -- -- -- just different enough to require an entirely new type of proprietary. -- That they don't even manufacture yet -- -- -- booklet designed. That's who has specific to the -- it up well I am helping many many curse words behind my hand like real. The devil's advocate part of me is what will they -- their Apple they can do whatever they want if their own product if they wanna make parents do for -- but I do feel like. It's this is like. It goes against any kind of -- collide. Coal. Kind of when my parents -- like a reputation it developed over having all these different kind of ecologically sound materials and everything you can't get into the device and repair it. Easily then it's it turns into landfill it is the very definition of a -- -- -- I mean I'm sorry that's just ludicrous. Like you -- your. You're absolutely rightly that really not only its consumer unfriendly -- -- very soul now. But Apple has been moving more and more and more in the direction of the machines that you can open up but you're right I mean it is fundamentally environmentally unfriendly to say. Now I'm sorry when the thing -- this is dead. -- well I -- -- the other side to that though is that I'm sure they all make this screwdriver. You know a matter of minutes I'm sure there's some there's some companies -- authority working on sixty bucks a exactly -- in this viewed ever for -- -- it. And Apple have the -- -- idea that I bet you anything that they have some sort of patent on the potential lobby alert screw design right and that you have to literally life and the ability to make this third -- from Apple and that -- an app that will cost sixty dollars but even if you spent sixty dollars on your analog -- screwdriver and open up your act -- -- you'll almost certainly -- the port act and ultimately it is pleased to waste -- a waste of time for them to have done this it seems and a waste of everyone's time in mind that they develop the technology open the device and repair. Is just appalling. But you know maybe the thought the onboard -- -- Europe's developing that universal charging standard. And I'm bored of them or know -- now they -- that they did -- I'm tired of behavior and I've had -- done. On buzz report -- at least I think that dot com has the iPhone four liberation -- -- -- 995. Kit it includes a pendulum driver to replacement Phillips screws. And irregular militants. It may be -- as they play frank it's built -- and catch up and I'm being a computer that's event that -- -- only Wellington methods of -- -- almost certainly. -- -- -- -- -- -- An outlet. -- I think we need and you pretty warm clothes movies. Prepare for double -- and principal in -- -- This is amazing so apparently. Video -- -- story today. They don't -- the infamous red super giants are -- -- -- -- -- that's actually abuses that gonna be adequate and -- but. I'm definitely on donates as a bit -- diet that's. I can wear an American mind really if I didn't take too revealing -- to its. But you would think that -- ideology. Is predicted to go supernova. And the supernova may reach her at the -- -- -- while. In which it will die or if we don't died apparently we will enjoy the view -- like. -- a little while -- -- would have a -- on view. -- -- -- -- They would at that would at least appear that way and the if I can actually have be close enough to give us the radiation or heat and it would look really -- and sky in and. Though apparently okay it could happen in a million years. Or it could happen report point out we don't really know when when it's gonna happen but if it does -- would become night. -- I would become day for several -- on earth because it would be so bright it would be tens of million times brighter than. And so we would not only have two sons but we would never have. Night at like two weeks early Q it's totally Catherine.

Why -- -- version of Android it's under development by many factors but -- the development version of Iowa. They're counting Android adoption when -- piece. Of its development cycle getting it onto the actual device has only just began. -- Now that fragmentation is an issue for Android but. The life cycle for a phone is pretty short compared to say computers and great on that -- and -- software and within six months also updated in hardware. But the point and pay and prelude that has over 50% adoption. It be a lot more if something -- it in on the way. -- -- -- -- it's tough it's tough out there and stepped up effort -- 900 developers and people at the beast in every version of Android to get to work on that particular tablet and a toaster oven. -- -- -- -- But in it is a fair point to say that Apple gets to -- all of the testing behind the scenes in the super secret lab named because it only runs on the one phone and it's the one version of and -- and that there's also a kind of.
