Buzz Out Loud
Ep. 1522: Is there ice cream for WiFi Day?It's 8-02-11 (in U.S. style date parlance, we know), and therefore it's WiFi Day ... we don't know what that means, but Molly's planning to get some ice cream out of it! Plus, Android malware that can record your phone calls and free WiFi in London, thanks...
Today is Tuesday August 2 2011. My name is Steven -- of I'm Bryan song. And I am Hollywood love in a buzz out loud is cnet's podcast for of indeterminate length at that so it gives money to welcome back -- and -- that it happened also gush Nelson and. -- -- -- Dirt about we're so happy that the show -- back in effect is -- -- the lovely and talented Sharon -- an excellent job killing spree yesterday. A you know what I'm -- out I don't look is good -- -- but I could -- There's one thing that I can do that insane but now it's gonna be back I was gone on -- a little trip out to Vegas. And but -- -- -- firfer -- reasons I was their for the evo. 2011 that is the world championship videogame determine where the best players around the world and some people might -- -- You go to that's -- -- -- -- it is amazing so. Sony was amazing it was this huge ballroom at the real probably packed at least. Locally over. At least over four -- 5000 people in house and you've got guys screaming like monkeys that there are -- -- WW turn of -- -- -- -- wrestling match. But these are people plane on a really high level it was -- a lot of fun it was a lot of energy. And it was. You know you -- people talk about could video gamers really become professional video gamers on the level of I won't -- a little athletes but it's getting there. It was his days it's ever been in the stream was over 75000 people -- live as it was happening at the main thing but it's grown and from this may be -- ballroom. They might go to at a convention center to a cool full on ballroom with like sponsors and boots and it was it was awesome -- -- Industry history and actually I think that shows the professional video game tournaments -- of wave bigger deal -- South Korea and Japan -- that only a matter time before growth and under here that -- the champions from Japan and other countries. Come to evo -- that this is the official world tournament. I go who is like the -- -- -- fighter He end up finally losing -- but an everyone went went bonkers like. You guys were screaming so loud like you could yield a spit against the back here next. I was people are jumping up and I had slowed growth but I -- it was awesome and just Serbian the same time but it's amazing and by the way I was in Vegas with. And there's not I'll show that just to be clear that He and his own time and is on diamonds are I know I -- that was like. I was lucky I was watching Ricardo update -- part of -- from games by. Update about it out of step on it -- probably would Alex find out of any value. Ricardo snuck up on mean he's like. We already filled our quota for Asians in this building and I'll that is your editor in chief of gamespot -- one. -- -- Now they really have him on -- that they don't mind that an elegant gaming or enhance these hours ago funny yeah also in other -- news it is Wi-Fi everybody. An outfit that have a higher YY day you guys. Will -- shot is 80211. Day. -- -- -- I beyond the -- by all day. Whilst I just you worked in the lobby yen in VP and there's some people though right that we did that didn't know why it's Wi-Fi and I can't -- I've put in a little search for pound Black Friday. The thing obviously you know -- -- -- black -- tailored to letters I did the search and there's someone and I love that she'd like didn't bother to Google it right T doesn't like. Feeling down dot dot dot what 80211. How to do with Wi-Fi at the fact that. And then pound -- Friday. -- -- so some folks can't be helped yet but at least they're trying to learn. -- I appreciate the effort anyway I love that it's like -- and think that outstanding 80211. -- -- eliminate you know a lot of things. It's -- congratulations guys. No place in a Wi-Fi router reset it for the day just to show that you care that it does this go get a little -- -- you -- -- 100. Oh but opened up to Wi-Fi network for today. Let's string of zed hey hey open your arms open your Wi-Fi there and let people in and until -- -- -- do that definitely don't. Safari it's just not that kind of world anymore. Now that -- it like whatever it is fifteen years in jail and 500000 dollars for acting linked them to them than you did don't you -- wanted to. The feds have pretty much made it no -- -- hook up anymore. Also no fine -- -- -- -- -- A bad press with that reports about the vandalism in the first place and then how they supposedly had shut up or blogger and then some other guy came forward relate. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Not for me. Might make that clear yet and it sounds like basically that there. It's been about a month of back and forth between one particular blogger and here in B and the bad press finally reached a peak this week and I have to say in my opinion. -- -- -- the right thing yesterday. This was a letter that is posted up on their own blog to their community and they out right. Apologized they say we are very very sorry they admit that they didn't handle it correctly. They felt that they were over the past four weeks they really screwed things up -- they did everything right to does explain that they were pretty much in the wrong the app for what they -- dead. Yeah when you first hear these knee jerk reactions as a company and by the time it trickles up to the top it takes time to put all the pieces together so blogger who is a victim has the power to. Pretty much throughout all the dirty laundry while this company -- reacting but they they did right in -- it in addition of that. They also announced that they're gonna be implement -- There -- new 50000 dollar air B&B guarantee in this is a good thing because this'll help legitimize people. To use -- service in case horrible stories like this. Ever happen again so it protects the property of host. From damage by air B&B it's a 50000 dollar guarantee they also added a few other producers like 24 hour customer -- -- -- The doubling their support team and they really want people that processor is because it's is that amazingly well it's it's grown and exploded in this -- -- one of those things that they're really taking them down. And they've added a ton of different safety related features -- -- a dedicated trust and safety department are reviewing suspicious activity manually. Verified profiles now. Safety tips are like basically suggestions like put yourself in a safe before you leave and -- -- -- product suggestion polls all -- the all of those kinds of things and and you know some people I tweeted about this yesterday and I said job well done they're -- me because it's -- -- rare. As we've seen with a lot of easily big high profile things like Sony taken note from this blog post -- you know what it says. We years sorry. We are sorry and it says it flat out -- just a blanket apology like you know we've screwed up. And we're sorry and also that 50000 dollar guarantee is retroactive so it will cover -- And any other host to have had bad experience that's a big deal to -- -- big deal and has a Washington Post. Points out it's almost beyond what's necessary because it. That's a little bit of a slippery slope that could encourage private. But they're still it's still willing to say like we want our service to sixteen. We're sorry we screwed up like I think that's very human of them and yes better late than -- and while that. This is what they say turning lemons. Into lemonade. Pay and who doesn't -- limiting it on a hot summer day the heat wave is still in us. -- -- Its own personal sites I love -- But really every indeed this actually makes this story I want you I appreciate you -- -- we -- have that we don't have them and thank. Now but it's certain they'd turn this disaster into their favorite resilient thing yeah I think -- -- adaptive flip they've got to be flipped at the right way they -- Bad news for Android users. Key it. According to at least one security researcher a new Android -- Trojan is capable that is -- -- this is a very. Recording. -- phone converse face and a previous -- and found by CA. Security firm -- details of incoming outgoing phone calls and then this new malware that was identified this week. Record to the actual phone conversations and AMR format. And then stores the recordings on the -- -- SD card. Dun dun dun him -- that -- the affected. I. He added a scary thing about this also is the Trojan you can only install it. If -- Android device owner clicks the install button that looks strikingly similar the -- installation screens that -- looks legit. It does it totally looks -- And then they say making the phone calls what triggers the payload in other words they recording and storing hospital -- They say -- it as it is. Already widely acknowledged that this year is the year of mobile malware we advise the Smartphone users to be logical and exercise basic security principles. While surfing and installing any applications. -- I -- I don't know what people. Really do with that. And -- they were -- Or it is they were -- in on their city. -- other. -- terrible -- the error or route you know even stocking someone that you know not that I've ever spotted doing this so I'm just throwing it out there but. If you might be into -- a lot of the a lot of exactly power grab the top your head at this clinic has satellite of creepy guy allow lies on the show. You know there's people that want. For example maybe have a circle friends -- you kinda have some interest in one of them but you and you do this weird stuff I'm talking to you guys listen you better not do this. That's a company gets you. Don't do it. -- definitely came to kill they came to collect this 71 year old man at least in Britain the -- who has been arrested this. On suspicion of involvement in the news of the world phone hacking scandal. According to the burglar British police force He was called in earlier today and -- arrested when He arrived it is being reported. That it's likely to be. Has really how many 71 -- -- dudes are probably involved in this -- -- who is a former managing editor of news of the world you left the publication in 2009. But it's looking like He may have been involved in. If you as the united and yet He is the guy that said okay guys go ahead and do this I'm okay with it being told that I don't think she is a key -- Probably wasn't making the calls the hacker. -- gotta admit. Egg to edit it just feels like this is getting closer and closer and closer to home to Murdoch. And it's already come home today across the pond to our side of the -- the New York Post has become involved doesn't last week New York Post employees were apparently ordered. By news -- legal department in a memo not to destroy discard Alter or change any potentially relevant documents. -- But it's potentially pretty widespread and -- into the further arrests stage. Also over in the UK does pretty cider does is -- and in honor of. I find an owner of -- -- in -- of popularized by the and that's the best part about his life I day -- day. -- -- -- deal like. It. And under. I don't know what I -- emitted -- different filming and scan. Now make it all -- possibly. Virgin Media. Call me when -- -- pathetic I know I'm I'm on vacation but clearly I'm not the only one might still be on vacation -- Though my article let's Begin a vacation and I as the -- stop it and again today this is the problem. You'd end up in -- people that are listing that sent here are not support it says I -- why would -- -- -- that -- cap nearly the size of my head. Definitely think -- and -- Virgin Media is apparently planning to try out free of marine public Wi-Fi scheme in London. That would challenge BT's open zone network which charges for access and of course offer free Wi-Fi all over London. Now this is the BT not myself I don't I'm not why am I over London now but version looking to make it a -- thing now BTU do you have to have charges that are socially with it so even though the Wi-Fi is there. So like you just jump on it's it's a paid for service -- virgin. This is interest -- we've heard about -- -- In cities been spread out for free even in Mountain View them you know Gould said there in a -- -- I see the Google Wi-Fi access but it never works then and that's one of the issues rate. Virgin might be able to plug in -- -- won't be enough people find out -- molasses slow. There's still probably gonna be some sort of sign in process we'll just gonna take a lot for them for this actually work I like the idea but we still haven't seen a successful. A real successful implementation of a city covered in Wi-Fi. Meaning -- by aperture. Although virgin is saying you'll be freely available to anyone at point five megabit per second so hilariously slow -- But if you're a home broadband subscriber up to ten -- bits per second to and service. The virgin service to apparently the BT is open zone network. Is -- BT broadband customers but when they charge it's like fixed pounds or ninety minutes -- browser IE which that they can US dollars is roughly like -- 140 dollars. Really know until it bubbles -- it accurately. President but the multi year joke about her porch it's it's ultimately -- -- He could expect. Apple right now your -- in and Steve giggled. I -- -- giggled and finally I'm happy smiling is so adamant. Brent on its so over me today none other you don't -- low or no you don't I'm really over. That -- put -- thing that we just talked about the fact a case so. I have been IA and yet this I have been waiting you know I didn't drooling about -- the gamblers like half. It's you know what I already have a MacBook Air I don't need a Mac but there. I got mine over the weekend but when I came -- the office today -- just when I got like lights and -- gonna go to Apple Store and I was gonna buy -- -- seven inch. A screen because I -- to big screen but I walked out with a thirteen inch MacBook Air war. -- It was a better value all. I think yeah I'm sure the better you went on to -- you're gonna go in and drop. Thousand dollars -- Marley African water is ridiculously expensive way to big mall early glossy -- your friend and I'm your friendly music -- explain this to mean if there is no explanation that's okay. You own an eleven inch MacBook Air that adds up till we could go you're completely satisfied than it did not have any desire for a backlit keyboard thirteen inch MacBook Air. Can you help me. And insane in my friend and -- if you know I have to admit its way. If after it is wait -- -- thirty -- faster that way -- is that. That and all that -- Know about I just -- -- -- to buy a minor and the public at Clinton and miners weight you gain and weight too -- and it's totally ridiculous -- not adamantly new furniture for it. And then wow look how fast that it couldn't -- You know what I think it is to get -- the -- to take it back and -- -- eleven it's evident it's. I've seen it I mean I've been telling you know Begin now that I've used it and see how old much faster and the like well that's why mentally in -- time. I just wanted to read title. The show what happened to Apple out loud there's no reason. I'll. The fact that at least a you know we -- let people know what's what's real you know it almost shouldn't be that easy to -- computer. The other things -- -- valid so it -- -- And there's only four choices and Allen -- went to make it go and click okay and computer like that like seven minutes or whatever and an early. -- And -- -- Anyways guys owe him -- we've been seen an amazing entries in the feedback loop with a video messages and phone called -- and so we'd like to hear your responses. Your reactions to this. I'm happy for Molly I just. Just sent an instant. But now it's technically it's exactly we talked about it's just like -- Our guys that -- its legal ad break but -- -- we return. We will. We will be Stephen will be -- -- -- -- -- during the break I can assure you pleasure he's wrong now believe will be talking about a competitor to Apple's reign at the touch -- to getting an update. Maybe try to make things work when. Hopefully then also the New Yorker. Doing alright with its iPad app. Tennessee -- -- one point two million dollars just from the Apple on things you'd go digital -- thing you -- digital. -- -- The bat out. On -- well. Wow or show worldwide yeah -- why. Worldwide and he's got they Yiddish. That was the from like Middle East -- He -- like a little plop it into the some come with. Had a on the -- that -- as -- popping. Up -- Now they would do little Clara -- of those great. Not yet as I know I -- I would like am I gonna say a word out loud they don't know what it is and and I made a mistake of saying a word in Almaty -- This period -- it helped me now Leo -- please please collar towns with with -- -- He did He included the transit translation well with the peninsula Hebrew thank you and escapes outlook that He grew and -- sometimes it's hard to think of forgive me okay they listen are so they know it's hard thing to apply and now illicit or show just to think like -- -- So. And a dollar okay we get it to Egypt and dumbo and -- with -- It. HP. After taking a beating on the touchpad and -- -- -- -- touchpad leadership and all of that. Has released a software update to the tablet that they hope will address some of the early criticism of the product and -- also rolled out. So word a fifty dollar price. Yes -- this free software update it'll make some changes designed to boost its stability fix bugs and improve performance that's -- and Emeril. Other outside of the design only of the flaws that thing was sluggish. With scenario. It's like walking through hundred -- and I love honey -- it was it was real slow and so that's some the changes they're gonna make it doesn't. Address any of the fundamental things that really it was -- like an iPad one. But two years later -- year and a half later also the rebate it's the it's an instant rebate that they're touting itself. The other saying that it is a limited time offer running through September 10. Let's be honest no it's not ending on September 11 they're actually in have a hundred dollar price cut to be a hundred -- price cut would do it for this thing like. Software updates to make it snappy you know some some programs that run well and then make it. 399. And then I think you will self you know it and there's nothing it's not that it's not bad not a bomb by any means it's just not as good. As the iPad in the county needs to be at this point or it needs to be -- -- to. That's the whole you know these companies are in -- good -- and I've seen Donald sometimes after reviewing tablets and He wants. Everyone wants desperately for there to be a tablet that really He feels a consumer the general consumption consumer will pick up the on the iPad and any -- after He desert as did his review of the touch up but how is it and it's like. You know it's all right it's good but it's it's not good enough. And in the -- as He -- beat up but he's mentally. -- and 58 is it to someone someone offers something. Did it like I I cover. How blitz. This -- I could not have let them. And that's cabernet -- -- under the tab that you can't let this. About one tablet though is definitely I mean there -- all of -- talk about is -- gonna revolutionize the publishing industry. And we have certainly seen people. Take -- that notion design things specific report for good or for ill in the case of the New Yorker iPad app which I also was very excited about -- it seems to be for good. It's working out for them in fact business insider reports that the New Yorker will make more than one point two million dollars from its iPad app this -- 20000 people of paid -- -- 999 for the year long subscription. Another 75000. Plus print subscribers -- also downloading the issue for free. Of their whole companion service that they -- if you have that physical version comes out to one point two million dollars per year. And -- revenue. And that's before factoring in the several thousand people who buy single issues each week for 499 which I've done I haven't on the whole subscription to think -- -- -- Unlike. It's one thing if you get the New Yorker every week -- menus had a stack eating into perspective the -- when you're on vacation or whatever but. If it stacks up on the iPad it's like yes I -- -- and of not reading that stuff over time cycle it's the newest thing out beacon and then -- wrecked. But -- but that periodic you know purchase of the single issues totally worth it there's a bunch of other cool magazines -- that are available for subscription like Vanity Fair and -- communicating -- I did the GQ. -- So it's interesting it -- interest now I want to be -- Girls can mean that of course you can tell you can actually girls should read that because they can help give their man some tips on how to actually -- -- that I should -- wanna talk. -- -- in fact that's -- some people -- -- a little problem when you drop a little I -- prepare yourselves for an Apple block even more than. Hold until your -- I know it's not gonna become an Apple -- -- -- that's what's going on and on and I think one day we're gonna do Apple. -- and Lafayette and mixture of the next anniversary for Apple we're gonna do an Apple out loud show. Am happy with -- and -- I don't know it's just so fast. Pulled. That's even sing is really noticeably its Sandy Bridge baby it's really -- But that's beginning at 1113 -- -- should be their new -- is Sandy Bridge. -- the bridge may -- Are -- -- anyway. And so we're we're gonna stop an -- ridiculous laptop to which by the way love mine but Apple's I cloud dot com beta launch for developers. They look like -- launch sometime yesterday I checked it out overnight but what you can do is if you are developer you can log -- -- the site and I'll show you. The -- cloud service in action because it talks to an it is a companion with the IOS five beta release that they've done so -- support for that. It'll be complete with the web applications over talks that they may not have it web France for these are web apps for these -- on the browser but tell their contacts mail like -- pages. But although they release a price -- users can sign up its five gigs free but then there's like ten gigs of storage. On for twenty dollars which makes it to fifteen gigs total and in twenty gigs of additional sort for forty. Fifty days for a hundred don't fear the thing though the hated like double the detail that they don't really talk about his. When you transition over to mobile me too I cloud. One of the features a mobile me has is is -- -- and it's basically like a drop box -- and store any kind of file from wherever I am from any computer. Put on here and access on any time the new I cloud service is going to get rid of an Apple hasn't talked about. -- -- Apple has not talked about that now if you go to outlet is there yet you go to Apple dot com's mobile me slash transition html. -- you know web page -- it'll tell you the details that they're getting rid of iWeb publishing in their old gallery but I just that's a big deal so. They've even set up with people how to. You know save all the files off your -- disk. And put a minute -- the place but no one knows about this and no one is talking about this and I'm like -- -- remembering that I should let people know that He won't be able to keep your files there. Also -- know gallery locking launching this fall and no iWeb publishing has actually looking at them. But -- little digital camera and does He want to take pictures of everything with my idea filler which ain't happening to -- for. So -- wonderful little mean for you know like forty for backing -- a little Canon twelve megapixel digital camera and it's so cute as anti everything public -- start -- like a lot yet. The photo blog -- in the Tumblr. It's time anointed -- and you can only upload one photo at a time and it -- to take on time and you know -- But I was like. What Apple had a thing for this. Yeah they did which they did and now they don't and now they wallet in the well I think they want right now there is no. Web publishing solution like that whole ecosystem is incomplete in that weird way. I think they realize that a lot of people are doing that stuff and other places now for Eli. L iPhoto would be nice ice is a quick push -- -- values here you know just push it straight from -- -- be great you know but a lot of us users. Aren't really and people. Our for the most part using that stuff -- like the diehard Apple fans again. People are going elsewhere but the whole I just think that's a big deal that's a really big deal not being able to have acquired the necessary documents is volatile to -- -- -- other services and what we say documents CI. It it's integrated with their. I works apps and -- those apps by and that -- those on the cloud but I want other things like my word files picture files that are independent from the whole Apple ecosystem wreck that's the thing. Right here comes posit you want TO -- actually that's mantra Eric thanks for awarding their -- the iPhone five rumors -- -- Not -- today but there are apparently photos that reveal the iPhone five design main. Which the only reason that we think is relevant is because apparently were also some photos taken in the -- yes we can permit. So it does is these are pictures revealed come from over in China at. The presidente anyway but I did it but -- if you -- take -- out this is -- form -- looks like the only reason why we're also throwing this in here. Is that over the weekend on tell trains. Which is you don't mass transit here public transportation here in -- California northern California. A picture was spotted by I was taken by someone on the -- trains and sent to nine to five Mac. And we look at the next link -- is from a distance but it does very closely resemble these pictures of this leaked out shot of these leaked out shots from China. Which act as -- look surprisingly like an access. Yeah -- -- whole -- the back of the -- looks a lot like tea it's like it's almost like a hybrid of like the flat iPhone with the curved edges now. And then also one analyst is nevermind Donna let's let's now and then at that and -- -- survey polled 260. People this time and I refuse. Microsoft and Nokia. Are going to it's time for our Windows Phone -- -- every line. And general windows -- -- -- that. Like guys okay can we just tell people so they know our daily -- ridiculous Piper Jaffray gene Munster stating the obvious analyst -- narrative in a violent ethnic and then we just have to give some context of unilateralist and a well exactly sorry guys I'm I'm dumping that story because. Gene -- is notorious for his in sixteen surveys like the Samsung Galaxy Tab iPad -- where He literally. -- 56 people off the street in new York and sometimes there's really -- release stating the obviously. You guys iPod bug and people are gonna like -- but it will buy it. Okay. And it's based on 260 people I talked on the streets. -- if you use. -- -- Windows -- chaser Microsoft and Nokia apparently are going to hold a special Windows Phone event on August 17. Two which many of us are thinking. -- -- -- It's like okay let's get the show on the road agonized in -- all integrate Windows Phone Nokia found in the go go oh let's do it -- that's gonna be in Cologne Germany. So I wanna go yet -- -- that road -- -- plans are that the physical form factor will probably closely resemble. The recently announced Nokia and nine which they launch with their -- platform which it was kind of their last hey look at what we were working with even. Though we're completely killing amigo project because they transitional to Windows Phone 7 rate the hardware looks really nice actually -- -- About that that's a good that's a good that's a win win. I mean we'll see if -- turned out to be all that it could be they Nokia hardware is. Beautiful it's always been well designed in that could be really a winning combination if they contemporary like. Really at this point I know it's hard hurry if kind of thing you can't -- -- river. But yet hurt. Yet try to find a literature when your whole Windows Phone 7 thingy going down I don't know with a him sent to me yet Aaron they're like still working -- the weapons falling apart we'll just wait till October end of September. 5 and she. We already know what's gonna happen -- just. Dividends here yeah well. -- survey let's try our product they had -- -- drag it. -- -- I am I am not happy I am not happy about -- and it's yours and you are it lets you -- It. There I hear a lot of tears in the buzz and now I milk side are not a bigger -- here a lot of tears but you know at the soliciting. So maybe maybe I'll be -- -- whenever I -- to drive away either love it I am. -- super excited to -- manga I really -- -- and -- -- but Google needs to get it together with and currently you can not. What is happening in the Droid X is arguably. A flagship phone for the Android platform it's a huge Verizon -- it's like you know it was. At launch. There's big. Big deal phone for them and they allow that gingerbread update to come out. Ruin that phone required a hard reset to even get it back to functional and then still like -- the GPS just stops working after a couple weeks unless likelier all the data from the cache -- the -- yesterday like a microphone button for speech detect it just doesn't work anymore and it can't stay connected to the network for more than five minutes and misses like. That's what gingerbread is done to this phone that is after a hard reset and -- reinstall every single app but the whole thing back together and Google has been like this cricket. -- cricket. Like you know what it's partly Motorola spot but this is Google's operating system and if they will not support it if they want not acknowledge it if they will not. Put out some sign that they're working with Motorola to fix it but the fact is that is not a functioning platform from. Like you can't just it's so Google to just like throw this thing out there -- -- your -- That's unfortunate that sounds horrible I do love -- CC sensation -- that iPhone is money. Well that's my favorite Android phone I'm just balancing out here now right now and people have got people not have those problems on HTC conflict I get that Motorola -- -- -- -- the update but there's gotta be a way for Google to support -- -- little bit better than. And I would not buy you know what here's what it comes -- here the HTC phones are amazing and that's good news. I don't know that I would buy another Android -- unless it was a nexus line from like a reference 200. Because that's when the one you know and feel that they're gonna give a crap about -- now I mean I haven't had any should be -- that's the way to go but I've now had a Samsung that was ruined by BS crap -- from Verizon. -- on and am now had a Motorola Android phone that was totally ruined by an amber an update Motorola as well fine but still. So those two are dead to me. -- -- It was like cool segment that we have Clinton smear tactic humanism and everything to -- freshmen in a brand new -- There there's a funny little Asian guy areas. Skype briefly yesterday -- -- on into the lake appeared on the and his beard and then just that people were like. Posting their screen shots and -- -- Stephanie officially reappeared in the -- -- Skype for iPad is now officially available it was I was dive video they're. Local gas there was no I don't -- download them -- -- this -- at a -- plan that. Also being increases their market share but Google guess -- still dominant -- has been somewhat successful market -- decreased to fourteen point 1% in July. From 11%. In June. Yahoo!'s. Also partnered with Microsoft so it's getting some -- traffic by using the being its queries are directed strict directly to being searched. Overall -- Google has increased their. Marketshare percentage points four point six percentage point to 65 point 5% in July. Globally it's it's bleak the -- and 83%. Being had. Three point 76%. But they just -- Growing -- -- -- -- if the songs or even swoop but 10% of that market to grow that that's a lot of -- and that's when I'll just keep growing. -- -- when I watch source code the other night and -- was that palace that it. Yeah yeah it's like things pretty cool. It's you know don't dig that deep on the plot in the math and so on his -- till all the computer programmer pretty not a computer opponents easily -- air force pilot. But he's a smart -- Well he's can archive is constricted is like you know anyway it's it's cool I liked it it was and how little memento thing on Google I like. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But it added a hugely big product placement thing and think about a lot of -- -- they did everything you watch ads like you didn't. The -- -- a lot of audiences. Google may have failed in its takeover attempt to group -- last year reports the New York Times but it is not giving up on the social shopping market they've acquired deal map.
