Buzz Out Loud
Ep. 1469: PlayStation Network: safe enough for America!Sony is firing up the PlayStation Network again and most of America should have access by now. But the Japanese government says it won't allow PSN back on in its country until Sony can ensure that it's triple-dog-super-secure. Which, uh ... I kind of...
Today is Monday may sixteenth 2011 mining Steve -- I'm Brian solve an eye of Hollywood -- -- -- buzz out loud in this podcast of indeterminate length -- episode 1469. And -- you guys have only listen to us an idea you should definitely -- -- -- into the video version because. Whole new world we got a whole -- Little Lan at my do you now plan language you know -- -- now -- man -- where where else you don't find out aluminum. Name. Whatever guys. As well as we are deep blue sea like the walls with amazing they look amazing they finally get the studio repainted thank you so much our production crew needs is. Chris prince Ali -- Steve's part of it totally Charlie bird like -- -- in for gone crazy on the lighting we basically just. Where we did we beg them for help and they delivered in Spain blinking with them and hold each week and a few other surprises in this the other guys gonna see you later yet still work in progress but this is already appeals brand new I know celebrity studio deep blue. Deep blue beads he got it beat deep blue and I think that -- -- -- new baby. Now you -- is down deep blue. -- -- -- Was it was deep blue sea in the movie where Phil Jackson gets eaten by the shark that is readily recognized that day but know and we'll get suddenly advise our. In the middle of a dramatic stuff. Is like on the level of Independence Day and has beat the president's -- presented -- like. And it does that -- -- -- the U beyond that I mean ever that that's the matter. It's not and not -- -- the content but that thinking can that the thinking band together referred. You get rid of -- for at that super great -- it'd. Not -- -- -- Monday and sometimes I know we may not be bringing that the high as -- energy on a Monday today is now today today's again days so we start things off for the Sony PS and update. It is -- back online in May not necessarily be backed up everywhere but Sony has been -- is that. They've been ruling it out throughout the US last night. I was able to jump on -- actually was on Saturday I was able to jump on the PS -- network you do have to be. You have to download the -- update that prompts you to change your password and -- servers were hit so hard that a lot of people couldn't get on immediately but. Around late last night I was finally able to jump on and that played until like 121230 -- -- and Intel and that all that I -- I had started to you but. Also you know states like East Coast. Some some some areas in this -- southern area are not -- this is a map that Sony said will let you know when states are ready to roll. Out of you guys can confirm if the PS the network is up everywhere because of our republic personally -- map it was actually -- I don't remember how to read. You aren't gonna -- -- -- out like because valuable that's the Mac does that mean -- all -- US is -- I think it does them I think that's what they're trying to say is that they say if your state is illuminated by your service has not been restored please be patient they can take a while for the servers to -- fully. But I do you think that green means. Darlene green is an -- Also because -- servers were hit so hard. They were down yesterday for about half an hour period because everyone's. Been -- the servers to really give me any passer call answer no idea they get to download a firmware updates and install that but then you should be back online unless. You're in Japan. Where. The to Japanese government does -- no we repeated no thank you. Thank you think you think you've got we're all your hard work -- coming but we're gonna have to pass on this one we're getting we're getting going and say -- thanks to the new PS and network and held. You can ensure. And provide us with complete satisfaction. That it is as secure as it can possibly be. Damn they wanted the first thing is that they -- -- promise that the counter hacking measures. Announcement -- said but the -- -- measures have not yet been fully enacted one of the reasons why Japan is a little app -- They don't want it they don't -- rolled out there yet arm also secondly Japan wants them to make sure and show them. That further preventive measures have been taken to ensure that all the user's credit card data personal information of private data won't be exposed. To Sony's only service again you know. They -- doing like the double. -- eyes cross UT's. Show me is working with. I I. It wouldn't let me a thing. I would also like though they. Why you have to pay and the only country that like actually you know how you said that you -- gonna have counter hacking measures in place. But you you don't like that. Demand knowledge actually you haven't completed your camera -- measures and we want more detailed and we -- -- actually like you to make. Triple dodged her yet that the credit card numbers are not exposed. It does no one else. To that I would want I want. -- they sell like legitimate requirements don't -- I mean. I guess I'm not sure why no one. Yet put those two stories together in the went about how the -- coming back online but Japan doesn't feel the security measures there are -- enough because. Frankly they should be a -- they should be Fort Knox for -- on if they're gonna turn the network back on so where's the disconnect there. We'll -- disconnect is if you've been Jones Nina player video games for three weeks. Its like getting fire in survivor. You can't go without fire you don't care how you got the -- is someone stole it couldn't you just want your fire. You adolescents about I really pretty good about it and that's the Monday however. Yeah I mean I think that's -- -- -- and I think they were concerned that people -- -- the -- is that they think America one of their games but I think through. Which I think -- often link American gamers would rather have the multiplayer gaming then the -- -- Factors that -- the object. A minute and a security company -- not -- All we -- our patented and and her and and proprietary triple dot factor authentication. Sounds -- RA Google and good luck American gamers understand don't -- when your credit card and. We do have -- if kind of a little excerpt of the official statement for Sony do you still wanna hear yet again -- -- as the root cause right. -- second in command and apologizing and explaining everything -- Here. Hello my name is causal Kurai and I'd like to share some news about -- -- season -- services. First of all. I'd like to send my sincere apologies for inconvenience. The service notices cause you. And want to thank you for older patients -- you've shown as we work through this restoration process. Since the attacks and networks we've been working around the clock to bring -- and media services that online. The service is being restored and bases and am pleased to say that the first base has -- been launched in most regions of the world phase one this includes. -- from PlayStation network and curiosity services. Online game play across PS3 and -- Music unlimited you have a current subscription -- Access to third party services such as Netflix Hulu Hulu and NOB -- Friends list chat functionality to -- B comparison. And PlayStation home. All PS3 customers must change your PS and and curiosity account passwords. Your new password can only be changed on the same PS3 in which your account is activated. Or through validating email confirmation. And we will be returning the rest of -- services including PlayStation store and purchasing features curiosity. As soon as possible. You know you've invested in Sony the PlayStation network and curiosity services. And we will do everything we can't to regain your trust and confidence. RAR -- have hot -- over produces the hell out of everything through a government -- You can see the idea nice smooth -- didn't see the video there are sold to glow sticks in the background so that -- have not. They were in unit tired than -- they could. I don't need no apologies that unit Ted -- of -- put them. You compute involved. They add that that also sounds like no word on curiosity -- want one thing that is down is that you can't purchase. Any good to the PlayStation store yet but that try to redeem some -- -- costing cochlear Medicare never. Edit they're still working on up part. I'd get canal and -- -- and audio -- there's they -- gonna try to work more of those Stevens Canadian or more though than to make more in the new the they because we cover the -- that might be a good idea I can't imagine that they were all half of the -- the unit -- -- compact and it hopes to bring the journal. Take a cue from Sony every line. -- that it's Sunday -- emerging actually on how hackers were able to break into the Sony PlayStation network the most salient detail appears to be. That they were able to get in through Amazon EC two cloud service. That it was kind of the vector. For fueling the attack they signed up for legitimate server rental through the EC two service it's unclear how they specifically used that service to push the attack out. But that was at least the starting point. -- -- -- Sony still says though. That there's no evidence to indicate that the networked credit card numbers were actually stolen an attack -- they still claim that. And they've held -- Latin so no. That might be a good thing -- definitely at its but -- it -- further bad news for Amazon and in some ways because they ran as if you do not service they've been able to be pretty hands off about it. But now they're saying it it is not the first time that the service has been used for ads by third party for -- purposes it's kind of one of those things where. You shouldn't necessarily blame Amazon for it because like -- -- -- you can blame anyone upset -- that are out there -- -- yeah but it. But with some of the details or at least during we wouldn't. They -- where you take a quick break when we come back. The US is releasing its international cyber strategy galore movies coming -- instant streaming on Netflix. I'll. Lol c'mon and excited and AT&T here deal that is indeed did you could feature. Blog about the buzz out loud everyone I'm Molly Wood and time -- even beat him. Traffic and hurled. We are basking. And the increasingly strong paint fumes here in deep blue. Also if you missed it over the weekend we pushed out in new feature on Friday. The best of buzz out loud that's where I digests the it I think Friday show with -- video only working on getting an audio version of that but it was basically. Ground up literally that best of moments from the previous week and -- try to do that every week. Aliens it doesn't mean where I can have a Friday show but now it is highly coincidental that out of they actually did take -- -- but I'll highlight -- a London hot news topics obviously some of our -- your moments. A little bit of computer love. All the above its little flavor of our show don't -- stuff that you don't have time to listen every day because. That happened like you're on vacation. And now you obviously passed and -- -- -- I had back to the news everyone. It happened over the weekend Lime Wire settled it with the 105 million dollars to settle copyright infringement -- That is down from the 75 trillion. Dollars that I think it. The music industry had requested and pianist I don't know how they're gonna get any money I don't think that they -- I wonder if they appealed to get a higher higher settlement I'm sure they did right -- I mean -- -- 105 million dollars is the ultimate amount that Lime Wire agreed to pay interestingly. Daily tech and others pointed out. That. None of that money was going to go to artist -- me and I'll just went to the hard to read into the pocket yet. Even the Wall Street Journal writes it is hard to see how the and -- very aggressive pursuit of pirate to scored a lot of publicity which may well have a strong deterrent effect. It is also had the effect of alienating some music -- and not necessarily just. The pirates. The settlement will do little to nothing apparently to improve the major label label image of course and as we mention that because they're not getting -- -- money it's a record windfall but the record windfall and none of it is going to the -- So in case any of you are aspiring musicians and wondering if that middleman helps you out -- all like all they've ever done really. Teacher granted they handle some of the marketing. Right -- -- in this -- named I'm not sure you need that as much anymore and they all they really ever done is serve to Jack up the prices of CDs and and now they're just standing in the way of using digital distribution of your music and not given any of this money so if you look at this money this total 905 million. That pretty much paid for -- -- there legal fees to pursue this on going. Read the do nothing for the artists like -- isn't it just goes into the war chest literally the work -- the war on people that they you know they claim are pirating music. -- I just I don't understand how that continues to be defensible and I'm glad that the Wall Street Journal and other like mainstream press. Are starting to pick up on the fact that it's really just a shell game. You know it's -- they managed to extort these settlements out of individuals. None of which goes to artists and then you know I mean even the Lime Wire founder admitted yet you know what. Turns out people were pirating music on my service it totally worked but. If -- what he was ripped off it was in fact the artist or not not -- mania and money. Though. Good job. Our our name. You're doing -- thing also on win. You -- the White House is planned to unveil their cyber security strategy sometime today if not it already is being discuss it'll be the first of its kind policy document. To really target Howell of the US government works with other nations and addressing the role of cyberspace. Also one of the top priorities of the White House. Has been sued targeted as like a variety of bills that would require summer infrastructure like the power grid financial -- transportation sectors. To really come -- with plans to better protect us. In case of computers were also tied to these computer networks all of those infrastructures become public plans and bills to prevent things are happening when those things collapse. So that it hasn't -- in the millions there's been a huge initiative I think our governments and if the first of its time policy document of course it. I'm interested to see what it says that it didn't have that story recently that that they even on -- -- cyber security tough for people and that the act and they're out of that well that with Dallas for intrusions are yeah. They would build lay out what they want to do. Not a silly how they will do it hopefully it includes a pretty significant funded segment on how they're going to hire really good hackers. -- a -- -- -- my fingers. -- -- Thousands of people gathered in Turkey on Sunday to protest the government's plans to implement an Internet filtering system in August. They were carrying posters at that things like free bands links now and hands off our Internet. The government has said that the filtering option will offer users the option. -- filtering system will give users the option of choosing between varying levels of access to the Internet with the main goal being. And that I love this old chestnut -- in this valley that to protect children from indecent content. Yeah the problem about the kiddie porn right there the problem with this is a lot of journalists over there are speaking up about is that. This is not just a tiered system but it would allow them to track. The users and individuals of the activity they're doing yet the problem with that'd. Bull hockey -- that is absolutely not -- ultimate all their ultimate goal is just leave that attract citizens. Not because when you choose a package that is not the free protect the children completely packaged. And then you have to pay more and you have to give them all of your personal information and let's be clear I'm sure that that -- all -- still be heavily censored because. -- Internet. Is already heavily -- there like 7000 flight I think that are unavailable. In Turkey. Yet that there -- also mean there's already tools for -- if you really want -- Protect the children whom there are already tools and software apps out there that. Limit you know there's even specific browsers right that limit what sites kids can go to -- better child safe. And you don't need to really put this in place saying. Okay fine if you wanna have your kid wander around on your computer on the Internet it's kind of -- to -- apparent -- Monitor a certain extent on what they do but as to how the government put -- -- -- and say okay these are the tiered plans and we're gonna be tracking your activity. I bet that that doesn't have absolute ball like it is yeah I don't. No one should believe for a second that the aim is -- now. That'd as even remotely as -- effectively protecting the children from indecent content and by the way. In that country and many other countries -- definition. Of indecent content. Is pretty disturbingly broad you know it's not like they're necessarily just talking about pornography -- out and out censorship. And censorship combined with. Complete Big Brother tracking. It's been it was at least at some point over the weekend a trending topic on Twitter like it was like Turkey censor web censorship or something like that I'm happy to see that. The web community is is also on the side the professors. I would also say this probably is pry one of the more peaceful protest you'll ever see I don't think -- in order I don't think down. I really don't thing like geeks and nerds are gonna be throwing rocks yet again. Bing and hold their signs are that they might swing their mice around like -- you oxidant with a Clorox that's that's a that's about as violent as it's going to yet. I hope so they were. At the keyboards keyboards. Keyboards and mice -- the next next -- right right here. Or track you via right now I love it also academy crazy story from the launch team that came out on -- -- -- -- -- campuses project -- -- his. Start up. Conference being emailed to you that right start -- conference -- but they put out the -- very -- very cool story about bit calling. The appeared appear currency ads appeared -- digital currency that its creators hope will essentially replace money. That it's and it's open source untraceable it's not you can't just manufacture. -- points the way you know it would be just as hard as -- -- -- counterfeit US currency. To try to create and there's an algorithm specifically designed. To create these and there's an entire. Market I mean this is just fascinating basically how candidates take was if the most dangerous project we've ever see SO that has such a high likelihood of like. Replace state money and being virtually impossible to take them. Yet -- bit coins their virtual coins it's in a form of a file that's stored in your on your device so you can. Trade them in different ways one would be like direct peer to peer. You can do an escrow service like clear point if you guys from Miller -- that or Riyadh bit clinic currency -- where this has been gaining momentum. Is then they mention that they had heard and -- buzz and chatter about this bit -- currency. Because in some cases it's telling you set a -- -- currency that's used for you know. There are -- good real good uses for but also you -- exchange of illegal goods. -- for the most part -- people have been using. At least. Okay I shouldn't -- for the most part you -- hackers look onscreen in out of the woodwork but it was uncovered -- -- because people were. Using it to -- -- -- the online drug marketplace called silk road market which was trading in. All kinds of drugs obviously and then people were using that point you to buy it but that is hardly. Hardly the only is there a site web site now 99 designed. It's basically a barter system at this point because there is no kind of gold to back it -- him. And obviously the downsides of -- It it's just virtual currencies though he had like seven -- -- on a USB flash drive and you lost the USB flash drive but that. -- -- so whether we talked about the big -- algorithm. So they -- because it has this complex algorithm that limit it's not like anyone can produce this money -- that or this type of -- so they say only 20000021. Million what bit points can be made but he certainly 140. You're -- there is. A dust up between software that can make a bit points but at this point the electricity in time it would take to actually -- one -- larger than the actual value. Of the bit calling via your laptop might take. Five years to make one and they currently trade at six dollars and -- cents per bit point. -- -- it I mean the market. Stuff economic -- are fascinating their entire forum thread I I spent like three or four hours just reading about the -- -- out of that. That there's a very active kind of like economic theory about it and you can big you can use offered to bid to try to purchase it going. To acquire them that way. The Tara missing -- -- and Adam Curry and the EFF are accepting donations in bay point and it's also it really is it it's just like this kind of underground and because it's basically unstoppable -- says it's technologically sound partly because it's open source. And the algorithm itself with technologically -- and yes chat room that algebra and algorithms can be stolen and hacked but these are. They're like they're really smart hacker people -- -- -- -- left that open source for the content of like updated its -- They found the concern about the legalese that -- is you could say for example they use an example the story about the -- there's a bartender. And you hand them over. 550 dollars in cash and then he transfer you a bit -- -- USB drive and then you which again is untraceable -- city could then. To hand over -- USB drive to your friendly local neighborhood dealer. And transactions are totally that's that's slick -- yeah I mean that's a real slick. It's fascinating. It it is legitimately scary readily visit. Alternate currency is the kind of thing that destabilize his government ultimately. And it -- there is no small -- representation of anarchist. Philosophy and -- going forums. But I adamantly. Frankly and I'm pretty I'm mad at the -- And you can understand how that kind of revolutions at that can -- -- I'm going to deal with at that point I'm. I honestly I wanna get -- acquire -- basically is just -- I I got some big clients totally want to expire and become -- declined. Absolutely mind best and -- might invest in -- The electric gas and ethnically. And tell them at the act on them and then and there like a of those are worth -- game and you go to jail. And -- -- I'm assuming that no bid -- cannot attack which I would -- -- another benefit. You also can gain interest on your behind -- you don't plan on using it in like for one -- -- higher air -- by the plan. And their mother their own their their own market regular trading -- -- and so they're trying to like invest in them when their low. And then ran out of them -- I mean that the economic editor. It's -- -- others have been calling -- or an app. It is so. -- -- And it sounds like it is I mean let's think it's -- the point where it's on the show it's kind of you know it's reaching like a little bit of math equation in the geek. Community and so I suspect that we are not far away from the point where difference really arguments are to do something about it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Think about it you'll be you'll be making it rain you'll be thrown USB drives -- in the admitted hitting hitting girls in the face I hit the page. But I'll let it rain on earth hour an event -- get up now just can't reiterate I -- that big coins in your general direct. -- at that. And it'll make -- arraignment on. An eating. So fascinating and I'm following what is it big client and refinement -- -- -- info on Twitter and it does post public forum thread constantly impose is really a lot -- but it is. I mean I mean you can get down there and read up more on this it's fascinating it's this past means it really is it it's one of the only. And first heard of like viable it's not eat it's not lose threads on -- currency backed by US dollars it -- its own currency. And it is spreading. Under and it's also cross country universal would believe that. Believe that. I've -- it through -- lighter news. I'm a little later. The post Disney Miramax movie studio has signed a deal with Netflix. They well -- -- it's a multiyear package they -- could be worth more than a hundred million dollars to. Miramax and it would make more movies available for streaming on Netflix and now there's a little -- to administer a little a little catch him. The little -- is that -- like that data and some of the titles for example would be available -- the good news undue risk to kill bill volume one into Shakespeare in Love pulp fiction and goodwill d'alene and -- The minute I don't -- party went in neatly into the -- in the bigger settlements show I've actually not seen that movie yet. Yes out of all the movies I haven't seen I have yet to see Apple -- I'm serious. I -- a serious. I've seen a lot Emily for the -- them back alliance are going to start flying into -- out there Alec. I was gonna keep their ill. What they'll claim. That but -- -- Did not not -- we are going to have a politics and our needs at that they can -- Sleep over buzz -- sleep over here in the deep blue sea. Yeah. Dude it's totally like a movie -- -- recently. And projectors being right there and have them and I came here. Actually not -- our studio with double -- -- I mean if we don't spend enough time here already there in our lives yeah I've not had hardly ever -- wanna do a -- in anyway it will -- we can stream pulp fiction as Latin that it currently available at that time because apparently -- several hundred -- -- movies won't be available all at once but rather with quote. Dozens of titles being added on a rotating basis. So politics -- become available so when he fifteen and -- -- does that mean bill once it added. It's. They constantly being rotated or just it doesn't have been added -- a team like are they gonna take off and then make them available or just. Add to the pot. The rotating basis -- what concerns me it's something they like might become available and then go away for awhile and then come back in -- maybe they can only have so many available in the catalog at the same time which we thought. Also the Miramax library will only be available for streaming to Netflix subscribers in the United States. And in Canada. They need more love they need a -- well and you know it that's. Just after nine bull with you -- like that just makes no sense on that we know now it doesn't make sense that's its content deals. Rent those and the content mills are just increasingly they're so Byzantine -- so ridiculously high to get off the stick to make it happen my dear Miramax. Good job recognizing that Netflix instant streaming is kind of. Eric maybe. And make it work and a -- at -- make it work and make it work. Although like what they're stars deal they rotate movies in and out because on a limited time Catholics they definitely do with a lot of have deals but the difference is that those are new movies that. Something like Toy Story 3 -- kind of understand it like white at least rather have it sensitive have to buy it. -- -- like mere -- sorts their library movies like pulp fiction and haven't seen. Should be available. Every day. -- -- -- -- this is the key back -- and and you have to -- EP. You'll never build a successful service in people show up and -- also excited abroad and -- When you -- consistency is the -- pure example Hulu plus and Hulu yet. That's a case study that we need to you have no idea what's gonna be there when it's advocate total crapshoot -- implement like that -- -- I. Honestly I bet that's a little bit a little manner of death but simply -- -- a lot deeper. No -- Never pay a pilot in cricket selling. The. That HP -- the year the new webos found them from AT&T has an off contract price of 349. Dollars or 399 dollars. But has showed up on Amazon for 4999. On contract there was briefly it. -- -- -- had tiny crop off all Blair they looked at it for 49 and you -- with no contract with cuddling. All 101043. People who want the -- to immediately pre order and then all those orders -- implement pulpit but still. Think about that contract is a good price -- that on especially considering that all the webos people I know. Are freaking crazy for. Especially if you have really tiny hands to if that's in the near the -- act. -- -- is a smooth film because it was accede the first phone I've played with that has the webos that. Really flows like butter ray because the game was nice but -- it -- announcement except. It's like you can't read once it's on it. Now -- -- to me to be a small it's the Q this phone I've ever seen. But that's typically not a good thing at from a user base from a -- -- that you know how it's highly tiny its super cute. But you also -- -- calls 900 faulty Blackberry Playbook. It. Engadget posted of variety of the serial numbers not all number necessarily sold but one of the issues was editor sixteen gig Wi-Fi tablets. Had a faulty build of the OS that would result in the devices being -- and able. And unable to properly load software on their initial set -- yet animals like lol it's just a software fix but it there was something. -- -- -- to the terms and conditions of the -- and then it just hangs there you can't really do anything about and in doing so they're calling though I. I don't know does anyone here does any of you -- all listeners do you have a playbook. I mean I don't know someone out there are actually by playbook -- I was paying 900 is a pretty small number of faulty tablets except that I was I literally put in the generally out of -- with old. Molly ever the optimist that's it it's like oh and that -- -- guys have a playbook. -- other off the news for the day. Twitter has reached another milestone a major line night -- -- the did not see this come and Lady Gaga. Has become the first user to reach ten million. Followers. C two heated. Ten million monsters and speeds as we did it it's an illness -- -- you -- London smiling. Does talk like that -- concerts I can tell you that density. But I am well you know did not know. It's like adding a human like it's an analyst -- -- -- hand of you really isn't. Athletic center was the first user to reach a million followers in April 2009 which now relegated to a million you're -- to do that with the right kind of accidental promotion. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Beyonce got there without writing even a single tweet I think that's amazing. He has and now -- just the links to her website and I went that because this article I went to that he still has yet to -- Is is a million people followed Beyonce waiting for that first tweet and ninety pretty smart million dollars. And in case you're wondering yes Justin Bieber is closing fast. It was there were it was a race pretty much between -- in the gaga and now. Everyone is expecting he -- secure the number one spot for frankly I'll go well Lady Gaga and keep that from happening. Okay. We're gonna make that a quick -- -- talk about that anymore now also Samsung. Has says it's treated at ten point one -- display will -- -- resolution 4560. By 1600. Pixels resolution. About it equivalent to at 300 PPI display a little under the retina display which is a lot smaller on the iPhone but you can definitely plan. On scene he's rolled out in a variety of -- and -- and also. If Samsung and Apple can -- things out I wonder if you might even see on the next iPad. Canada and if they -- things out really really -- name and that if you guys don't remember their -- -- -- -- patent lawsuit within -- with the iPhone. -- -- -- allegedly makes products that look identical on Apple products. Some other stuff -- -- some -- You've been against Nokia will abandon -- OV flash go by Brandon -- -- an aggregate matter for now does it really invited sounds like some of the mouse click and a. -- -- -- -- But I actually think that may be highly productive anyway it was the mobile services brand Nokia's -- percent super hard but they're going to rebrand it as Nokia's services. Later this year and there will be no more. Standalone. Kind of went and served as unclear whether that's related to Mac goodbye -- -- -- dial via. Okay let's go ahead and up -- has only gotten so we have -- Seagate gulf like satellite portable drive now this is just out we have -- review on our website W review let's check is now this is a 500 gig. External hard drive from seagate. It's -- by. IOS type device user. Is that it can talk directly to your something like an iPad. And then you can stream movies -- saw this thing in action on in our labs into -- -- HD EV DO blonde movies directly to the iPad flawlessly that is the 500 gigs so. Completely awesome for the traveler not only just for storage but if you wanna stream content directly it does stream pictures really slow. And -- steam because. The Apple TV had an issue with. Loading pictures. From your libraries over -- over their networks. This here with the -- with a photo shoot it visibly cash at its loading all the photos individually it also you can't like -- -- scroll through instantly. That takes a while but a security agreement HD movie -- -- must be a software issue. And like -- bug but today. It's nice active throw all my movies on -- -- is the battery life on the -- throughout port five dollars but I think this is a killer travel device at a -- companion. The super cool and also rumors are floating around that the I've an iPhone five. Early prototype has apparently been spotted in the wild. And that it would feature an edge to edge screen I guess -- purported to be an iPhone five G -- A five year whatever it's called -- five. Four -- side by -- RS where I do.
