Ep. 1281: Microsoft gets serious about tablets. Again.
Friday July 30 Washington -- Jason Howell I'm Brazill I -- regular welcome to -- I'll go cnet's podcast of indeterminate length episode.
12181. It's a happy Friday -- is always.
What is going on today I think I've -- regain health Steve -- is talking to all his.
Investors and stuff at a financial analysts meeting this week.
And he fine he said and make no mistake.
Microsoft is serious no really this time we mean it.
About Apple Computer's there were canard there again.
And -- for the first I mean how many times yet one more for the last time whatever hope for the first time for the last time he was very adamant to say that Microsoft is going to be doing -- tablet they've got a lot of people working on it they will not rest elements sleep until they.
Put it in in Apple's dominance of the tablet market he -- said.
Microsoft artists -- Apple has certainly sold more than I'd like them to canceled because I wanna I mean for Enceladus late.
The let's say that then that's -- coming into some socially.
There's a lot more than I -- liked them too well again something about it while they have the chance I mean now if you get treated it was a wrote this throughout the been covering this for years forever.
Microsoft had countless they at one point there were more models of Microsoft tablets in the market in the where iPad and there are a lot either execs have Amber's the iPad.
Maybe they'll learn made it on but then you think okay finally -- -- gets what Apple's doing right.
At the beautiful design integrated hardware and software.
On the way they appealed to the consumer pick page.
Several pages from -- -- and maybe Microsoft with all its resources and vendor relationships and channel relationships and consumer good will which they still -- lender and developer Google.
They can do some of that and then he says things like.
When you get -- a tablet for months it'll print.
Well it's gonna print these thousand -- amazing there's actually apps that allow -- to do that right now so I'm.
I'm excited about that but the thing about this also is you know.
Them launching their.
Microsoft themselves are the ones that are launched the talent there there depending on the third party in -- -- -- things out at the moment.
-- -- -- you know -- yes and no cause -- he's obviously mean Microsoft depends on hardware manufacturers to produce products where he said that.
This tablet will be -- Windows 7 tablet yeah.
He also said that if the hardware isn't ready they'll make the artwork if it isn't but yeah a moment you know they're not it doesn't unless we don't know anything rate and they they killed their carrier plan.
But that -- their own hardware that is not going that's not coming out so.
If they're working on some other secondary piece of hardware.
I'd be surprised at this moment.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
Demand for the iPad is still an insatiable rate PS the you know it's not like that.
Bell -- has dropped off at all no no it's high in Spain and -- not a word or is that I know that I mean there were they were trying to release added com.
Was it no its its out -- the countries that they want I was mixing up with Apple board but they can't keep up with the demand initials and it would be able to select that area of 2011. Help button though they're gonna they got -- -- -- -- -- big Christmas product.
-- said we're coming we're coming full guns the operating system is called windows.
You may have heard of it.
You might -- -- little operating system called windows.
-- actually -- a little surprised by that I would not be surprised it's the Microsoft code in the Nam the windows phone seven OS direction.
Call -- an OS or something.
Or you know the didn't explicitly saying that they're not doing that yes he did the Windows 7 -- he did he -- Windows 7 will be the thing and you know it we have the rattle your windows apps on and -- all the drivers and print and all that stuff but it's also exciting to people.
Necessary but an exciting. And it but.
The windows phone windows phone seven -- with them -- whatever it's called that OS -- actually quite good it's friendly it's pretty and is the and is designed for for protection yet.
Also at this --
He knew -- I just -- -- here.
-- cable also at -- analysts meeting Microsoft was discussing about their core businesses.
That -- that they're making it that at the front is you know the forefront of their focus on the Xbox and TV being office -- -- server windows phone.
Windows business users and SQL Server.
And -- just basically trying to show people what their prioritizing their initiatives and what -- they killed here so that's that I got suspects that that they have these eight business.
Units probably -- -- with with that's super duper senior VP.
Running them what do they kill -- -- anything not them.
Well that enable it does that in addition to those eight business units there also -- -- -- growth of these enablers.
Store marketplaces -- with support -- then.
Mice and keyboards etc. that'll -- you know that are there to help support those.
-- initiatives so this is a look basically into what is based in what looks like.
A miserable. Matrix organization. Here our businesses and here with answers along this line -- here are enablers along this line and if you're working at Microsoft are going.
Oh great -- I've -- to bosses actually not that eight office and they all want to base yet it times it.
Anyway well hopefully American.
Make it makes sense I thought those -- is that in their -- -- you know Microsoft has been talking about the clouds so much.
That shirt and a cloud service can be integrated across the board in you know -- to server the windows -- OS and windows but it is.
And and I would have expected them to explicitly.
Have the -- -- one of their business initiatives -- and they've been pushing satellite and innovate with all the features is that a business initiative or an enabler that to me sounds like you should be an enabler.
Data is neither -- and put in the with an enabler so.
While and they didn't put it in the in the initiatives either it's.
Windows server windows on windows business users who wrote the mice and keyboards enablers -- enablers of -- of -- ability to use your video cameras.
If it's that Microsoft doesn't want to be seen is that as a consumer hardware company and I guess. It's not it doesn't drive their vision such.
-- -- the have a vision doesn't really drive it just supports the Windows 7.
Well yeah you need a mouse to use Windows 7 on -- rate so it could only be if -- -- -- to your ability to use windows yeah right exactly.
But there there also we should be why understanding. They don't need nice.
They do they need they need our money they need any reality would be make -- -- -- item I'll apps will buy them obsolete business is alive and well actually less and less as the movement who -- --
Anyway. I don't really I don't want to be negative.
Pulled until -- they make it so easy now it's --
Internet Explorer nine beta is coming in September. Also -- I think coming out of this big analyst meeting there is a newly leak test build of 99 that's out there September will be -- --
And new graphics subsystems. And a whole bunch of new features probably an H you know five.
Is that the that debated slip though from August to September and I guess we'll see that coming up and in 2011.
-- alright okay that's cool.
But interestingly they might have a little bit of a problem getting people to pick pick up that that browser.
Especially in some countries like for example the United Kingdom.
Where the government there has said you know what we are not going to upgrade from I.
We've looked at the options.
And -- sticking on government owned computers with I. IDC. Sixty -- despite the fact that everybody else.
On -- our our continent in the EU France and Germany there are things get off my.
Full polls and what the UK as saying.
Is it is therefore more cost effective in many cases to continue using I.
Such as firewall and malware scanning software to further protect public sector Internet users they think it's too expensive.
To update their computers from I.
Much much safer browser so it's ever gonna patch up the old ship.
Until basically all the duct tape although often thinks the bottom like the -- well there's a -- interrogated there is an online petitions petition and over 6000.
Signatures work urging them to not use I.
When it was network was essentially hacked into his through IE six itself and so you would hope.
That the UK would maybe look at this but no never they're not going to.
It's more than just what it is that the cost of transition it's.
It means that developers who -- working for doing you know government.
Programs or products that run on a browser in the UK have to write for basics which is obsolete so now you've got a -- and I know any community.
Yeah and it means they can't use their you know new applications that are coming along basically are dropping --
Two. What 1995. There.
That's I'm glad I'm joking or not that far back but a lot 2001 student welcome wanna operated don't environmental again let's ten years ago that's that's light years away in the tech world absolutely that's very bizarre.
Muzzle break out little two wooden sticks its army to fire out over there.
Speaking of the bizarre. Our government is has a new bizarre way to make money we'll talk about right after this break.
Well if you thought that the UK sticking with I.
The reasons being.
We're out of money -- in my head that we never going to let me everything we turn to -- and if -- legalize Internet gambling that means those servers Camby can onshore.
-- and we can tax them.
If you win money from one of those tax Internet servers the money UN.
-- -- --
Yet DL Wednesday finance the house financial -- committee approved a bill that essentially is going to would delete would legalize online poker.
Overturning in 2006 there's a federal -- that I drove.
There's still web based offshore gambling so the these -- -- the hosts out.
As higher recently learned about like are people still doing this every -- yeah the the location of where -- servers or -- this is taking place is actually offshore and they can't be taxed as well correct.
Yes that's right -- eight its its they're kind of gray area here and this just you know this is like a lottery you know it it separates.
Gamblers from their money and it gives us the the the government a piece of it one of the great quotes from the -- this is.
Was this oops that's blister -- -- cannot use a computer today.
Well I can I can help be I got talk about the story a little more now the Treasury Department had this this is punishing they'll be the ones that are -- --
And regularly in the Internet gambling operator -- that leads me to believe that a -- initially.
If and as this goes through they would control who's going to get a license the athletic doesn't get too big.
Is that that's one thing that they do you have the ability to use that not that every Joe Schmo can also just open up his own -- gambling site here in the US.
-- representative Brad Sherman from California said.
We will pass a bill to do something important on the Internet gaming he said 42 billion dollars over ten years to be the impact from this.
One of the other great quotes from another story -- mr. frank says some adults will spend their money foolishly.
But it is not the purpose of the federal government to prevent them legally from doing it I agree perfect sense it's just -- them.
And it's -- he ought to foolishly spent that money give us p.'s media for that alone is money are soon taxed.
So anyway. Apple has patented.
A bunch of what look like just standard iPhone application concepts one for travel one for hotel booking one for fashion.
There is a big patent applications that we see and read write web where you see a -- -- -- and -- that just look like.
The design of an app apparently Brian this is goes a little bit deeper than just run and the -- of an app.
Yet you know on the every -- kind of -- -- -- like how how can you start how can Apple -- start patting patenting.
Applications. And probably around three or four months ago they -- also submitted similar things with on -- booking reservations for tickets for hotels.
And airplanes but it wasn't necessarily the application but it's also.
The back and the the infrastructure of the phone interface with some some sort -- public that tossed the device industries the information so.
These these may be additional add onto that previous filing that happened or what do we just haven't heard about so when you just see this right up -- like they're not gonna -- -- -- you can't.
Patent and -- but I I feel like it has to be more involved with the back end and then the execution of it with this application going hand in hand.
Well I should I would sure hope so because the other thing this looks like on the surface anyway is that.
They're trying to patent applications that there you know become -- leading developers at the developers building and that's how Apple's making -- right now the why what they think they could technically though.
You know by them doing this if their previous patent applications work for the infrastructure that -- that -- that's a cohesive solution that that would effectively.
Denies on the developers might be working -- answering yet.
So did -- -- we have the hardware -- that makes this unique product or the APIs of the infrastructure that you -- gonna happen to so they could -- -- developers by doing it in in one way or that the term down by competing with them.
And FaceBook we talk about FaceBook -- -- -- -- questions feature where you can ask a question or soon everybody will be able to ask the question on the home page inquire if universe.
Basically giving FaceBook a gigantic base of knowledge. -- that may be right maybe wrong but object to -- base of knowledge yet of created a bit of questions and their answers.
This would be huge because it would as it would if indexed because than anywhere you search for question and answer you end up on FaceBook heavily it.
-- -- is reporting that FaceBook has no plans to give search engines access to that database in fact they're blocking it at the moment.
So what's the best barbecue joint in San Francisco.
You'd want you Google that -- that Google results you won't get the FaceBook result there which is bizarre. I mean this FaceBook is all about opening things up the public in getting people into it.
And it is there is there any advantage of -- but.
I mean advertising implications of -- targeting what you know these social bee hive mind.
It's really -- gravitating toward there.
Is there'll would that be why they're trying to block the status of the oldest can't see it and -- you'll be wiser about advertising and catering towards where these people located what they're thinking about it talking about what this says if this hole but I don't think it will but if this holds this says that FaceBook thinks they can compete with -- and advertising.
Because people will learn to go to FaceBook to get answers the questions they will see that FaceBook serve ads there instead of going to Google thing that Google ads there and then going -- -- -- --
So. If this holds it says.
FaceBook is going head on Google's advertising business however I don't think -- whole I think because this product is brand new this is a nice transition that I I.
But a lot of I saw sparkles and I think that down once they get this thing tweaked out they'll open it up so that who Google index them -- -- -- more traffic from Google yeah.
I think it's Friday we need more -- data is there -- that it.
It's like this little -- summoned there.
This -- like it okay.
I don't know what do you think think they'll open up and keep private. I don't know if there it's.
Really -- -- at the moment because it's -- -- -- the traffic of people. Of it becoming the hub where things are people are going to get their questions answered yet.
I did it becomes a bigger thing maybe it'll -- protected if it doesn't take up and it does open up.
It is trying to protect themselves from all this privacy blah keeps coming back you know -- way to -- in the Q&A totally open everybody.
While they're making it totally open everybody that's the number of -- right.
Okay right so it's easier that's only five people know it is but you still have to be yen and give explicit permission to say yes one part of our.
So it -- -- FaceBook.
Quick headlines here a cool little feature in Google Earth.
Whether now pretty much I don't how real time it is but it's real time enough if you're planning -- -- the drive this afternoon to see where the clouds are.
If their -- to the beach -- big storm forming.
Google Earth of course is not it real time system it's basically satellite imagery. And they had.
I think historic weather data on it before or -- delayed by an hour to but now it any more real time weather data we can see like.
Radar maps and cyclones -- real that's become a weatherman pretty much all the weather. Well yeah.
We're all out there and yeah -- let's -- let's check out Israel alright now.
Someone's gonna make some dollars and -- have to think and the Internet weatherman design and I think this is you know this is fun is the look at casually out of its gonna really help because he got -- zoom in to that area but.
It naked in a great weather is like the Google Maps apps that we have already on our phones yeah be -- they haven't done that yet.
But -- they added that as an actual layer on top of the Google Maps app that we already use on Android and iPhone in Britain one of that would be.
See whether you -- it right well I'd like -- the -- but they can in there and this only applies and a couple of locations like San Francisco where we have micro climates where you walk a mile and with.
It was seven degrees and sunrise sunset it sixty degrees and foggy.
I like -- that -- so when I get on the bike you know I can no don't go that way definitely head into the fog that would study proceed.
But they're very few applications written back experience -- -- whether.
Rim apparently is planning a tablet with talk about the -- -- on the iPad and we will see it in November according to sources.
In a Bloomberg business -- story.
It'll have that same dimensions of the iPad might with -- idle screen.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth -- and will connect to the Internet through Blackberry Smartphones so you use you're the tether your Blackberry as a investigate where -- yet.
Yet it ultimately all these pads that are people are time -- they have to come out there in the holy season to get any traction is.
If people dropped out all its its definitely over.
I mean you really just saying I I really I really feel so because this -- this holiday season this is quoted in an iPad is potentially the if they get you get that stormont how many more millions of -- that gonna come -- and and that trickles trickles down the road.
And you have always competitors that are behind their trying to even get -- name of the game now people don't even think other mainstream consumers don't even think of any other company is a tablet company rate.
They think iPad so they gotta get down the holiday season and it's got -- get enough I am I thought -- still handicap in this this horse race Apple.
Android or Apple Google.
Maybe made Microsoft may be Blackberry may be web -- -- Google Google for for the for the techno -- files like us.
Now but because open source you're gonna see tons and tons of -- products and stick with some of them will be crappy with will be -- -- -- --
That Blackberry really I mean at the consumer brand.
Well I mean there are there are a lot of consumers to use blackberries and what are familiar enough with the Blackberry they aren't -- -- -- so they they have they have they have more of an attachment or so she's not.
This is a product that I've used before that I might like.
You -- I would just wanna go real quick this is kind of related to we're talking about back to Steve Ballmer -- actually one of the things that -- that he actually mention.
Is. If he -- us for the -- as for the Android in the tablet market.
If Microsoft can't compete against those devices shame us.
Yeah well guess what shame on -- Microsoft because you had a while you had a head start.
But it's interesting but I do think that the Android as a tablet platform does have the potential to rival the iPad as far as like mainstream knowledge these.
I tell you what -- you know the the the this leopard product you know it's gonna do it's gonna give the level -- -- -- imports money.
Get to the end Jeremiah side side battle -- and I think.
It's like two little kids on the side when -- -- -- the -- are just now economy and the -- table the stinking up products we don't really like so much the copy called the S announced never -- uniter we and 99 dollar color.
AO LCD resisted touch screen.
Android powered tablet being sold as an electronic book reader now it will use I think.
But by hardware it's basically a -- LCD -- it is not a high contrast ratio electronic ink tablet you know it's being sold as one and you're gonna see a lot of these things coming out.
-- -- undercut the Kindle -- particular Kindle.
It's not even close the Kindle it's not an e-book product yet.
So I mean there.
These upstarts are gonna do whatever they want I remember as CNET -- -- -- on it and it had some really cool on social.
Kind of features within their votes were -- -- you know basically create a book group and put in bookmarks and notes while you're all reading electronically Newton.
That's something that I would imagine all these other -- just basically taken at -- -- there's -- it it was really policies though.
They're doing some cool things.
There's a really cool product maybe it's -- weird product that sprint is working on called the --
And who -- it is.
It's a case for an iPod Touch that has a sprint three G data modem in it or iPod Touch let us get an iPhone.
So I it takes your iPod Touch and turns it into a three G device I guess you could run Skype over it yet to make into a phone.
It's also a hot spot.
So he can use hot spot for other devices.
Maybe what a weird little they -- just data everywhere but it's.
It's unique because I've -- -- -- -- how well the thing would catch on its priests if its slim enough I mean there's definitely people what if it's priced around like.
Once when he nine -- so I mean.
I think it's only people that would try that out my I just and I.
Why why why -- locked into account what it will of the contract he liked it depends the you know you and I get -- that your contract and the -- I mean sprint also currently is one of the -- -- that has unlimited data.
Now it's doing in the chat room -- very good question -- 11 word might.
Because the iPhone of course and iPod Touch doesn't have a microphone union it does what they -- -- -- iPods I don't know that that -- in and not.
If it did then basically you would be able to turn an iPod Touch into a sprint iPhone which is kind of cool might be involved in devices -- one would do.
But this is you know the iPhone you lie.
Using Skype -- in other voice that.
On a network that actually works even even with the Mike are you okay obviously would be like -- with a phone that there's no.
It might but it feels like and -- headset on and she.
Yeah so as you can now yeah it's an expert you know and I've got three device three products.
You know to do phone -- what I use that one but still you know if you hate -- the which apparently entire world does this is an -- I think it's entry in its cool.
And we've been talking for the last two days about.
The DNS -- key holders these are the people who have five of -- have to get together to.
Reconnect the internet's DNS servers if they are all taken offline by some.
Natural or man made disaster. We've been proposing that these key -- should be kept.
That the list of them should be -- closely guarded secret well according to the CNET for promise anyway.
It's not so hard to figure out who all seven of these -- -- -- the vantage.
So everybody so Paul -- in the UK yeah Kaminsky in the US young -- -- China.
Movies who have array in Burkina -- so.
In -- Canadian papers so those are the people who you have to compromise if you want to make the Internet and restart -- -- or so -- they -- may be.
All Carolyn B toys. Hello there is still deeply. As you read keys -- yet -- -- in unison.
And there's also a metal -- -- skeleton.
In the same cases where you restart Internet yet the -- that are sort of thing yeah definitely McCall arts the security politics that says the story the way overblown Internet can be restarted without these guys which of course.
Does -- the question --
Why do we have these guys have -- -- -- there's probably just the button and of the president's desk.
What the president's death is compromise. No more. -- got these seven people think you got one or the other that they'll say.
A lot of speculative fever here is but I wish we could add pictures of all these people -- they really looked like.
And then put them in superhero costumes and -- and those old suits and you don't need all seven of them the only five.
The final five but -- a case the united about the five -- in white.
Robes from so some of them have different parts of the -- yet so.
I'm just seen if five of the seven only are needed some of them have the same pieces of cut on and another when the codes were -- that that's overlap in a way that -- -- point.
Anyway our our science story today too much to handle this is just -- freaking currently this is a freaking cool story.
Certain -- -- we've always thought that each fall so that we find of a dinosaur tracks they're cops that yet little baby Trace their -- the producer up grows up and get them.
You know --
Armor on it and then it guys that that it's like last week we are -- week we were born.
We are the same shape we are and we grow bigger and then we got well apparently. Dinosaurs are.
Could be maybe more like frogs.
And butterflies that they met amorphous and -- -- more the -- actually wrote it changing from one form into another --
Really big because they're that is really large large forms so track terrorists is Dresser tops the story says maybe we should be -- it -- sourced now.
The research done at the Montana's Museum of the --
Says that triceratops is really just the juvenile form of the more elaborately be thrilled indeed born -- sorts. -- attracts or -- the BB tour of sorts they said by telling growth lines in the bones not unlike tree rings.
-- -- that they've come from different from animals of different ages button.
That just does -- we're -- after rewrite every dinosaur book --
Instead of going old scared for their capital and beat her so she.
But 500 pound -- and dinosaurs that -- but also it the point is that.
You know these are animals and have been extinct or -- whoever you -- potentially millions of years.
They are -- -- -- -- you know how can you really Telerate.
I don't know it's just. Despite angry French -- -- -- talking about frogs and anger and it's Apple so.
-- -- --
We got several them well actually is on our thing about Android up Android updates and security flaws yesterday and one of them came -- what.
Take is in regard it sold or Egypt or let you know that global market -- -- or auto update feature or aren't too.
-- -- --
They call their security not changed you while -- security.
-- -- out there are not sure.
Good to know as -- several people mentioned that and that is actually that's that's good good design point there that if there is a security change in an app that would be auto updated it will block the auto update opera as long as you use the user don't ages ago is that it.
Yet it is to be electric shock every one of those your security settings that change there are changing and it might not paying attention it's.
-- -- can out of phone.
Bush Chris --
-- to us and says as I watched episode proximity -- -- yet another example people not seeing the big picture with the robots. Why not train -- Nathan -- -- looking robots when a train a snake to put a -- it makes just as much sense robots are not humans.
Stop wasting countless hours and money trying to make them walk into legs like us.
Put some tank treads on these bad boys and -- that.
Forget flipping pancakes with heating elements of both of the robot hands and let him grab -- -- -- battered and without a perfect -- in any -- that you want that is true the whole idea behind -- is to accomplish things that we as humans can't or won't do stop limiting them to human standards.
-- -- --
Very thing point however one of things that humans can't want to apparently is teach people.
So how are we gonna have robots.
I mean are we gonna use technology to help educate our own little embryonic forms with robot so we have to make it look -- people at some point although the idea.
A robot with -- hands button.
Excellent -- yeah as a single single purpose robot there -- like the rumba for example at least -- a robot is just learning how to flip a pancake in it and it can probably do other things but if its hands are pancake makers.
And -- -- that's but it hello domain they want to your house they could replace half the -- that I hop.
That is true that we're -- -- liable and smear is.
That's what we need this.
-- -- --
I love it.
Are right now this email comes from don't know the -- of this -- don't know the person -- but it's in reference that discussion about the Blackberry and the touch screen and a keyboard.
Well the new Blackberry than 9780 is a slider phone -- -- physical keyboard and a touch screen able to be used while the phone is -- they in the or canoes there's a -- -- between -- T on August 3 I believe.
Thanks sent from Blackberry.
More -- more Android will actually I should just apartment and about -- rather -- fact very well actually.
Area that's actually related to what are -- -- question was yesterday we asked would you prefer. In the new -- Blackberry stick with -- hardware keyboard or touch screen.
And it was a resounding every single person that submitted an answer.
That's said that they would prefer to stick with a hardware however most of those people also did say that they would like the combination of both so it's not like -- get their wish him.
And and then a few other answers that we had a Friday we asked what was last picture taken on Kodachrome.
Few people wrote in said is probably picture the new DS LR. Be taken pictures on the bottom of combat boot of doom.
My day we asked what would you do with a -- both on what to do with the Expos -- if you found it.
-- -- -- said if I can do anything with it I would eat it well I won't eat anything.
An anonymous wrote in and said if I find it it's going right into a box and being shifted to 35 seconds -- Label got to Jason hello Jason at CNET and now would be great I will I do full a first look.
On -- -- -- is that Tuesday we asked track pad malice or another.
And malice and you can imagine resoundingly won because -- -- were -- most used to I think nothing came in second track.
In third and pretty low third if my if my MacBook had an -- on it I would love it Oda yeah but that's an idea with -- -- and have it loaded yet.
And then let's see here on Wednesday. Our question was should -- jail broken phone cancel the warranty and it was pretty resounding no as you would imagine.
But there was -- yes.
Someone actually -- that yes -- jailbreak your phone should cancel your warranty was probably someone who worked at the Apple genius bar.
Yeah well all these people like LaToya iPhone I don't know -- it looks -- you -- operative.
That's an island analysts so -- girl so today's question.
And I'm just coming up with a soft top but it's related to -- -- we're talking about the UK government ruling out upgrading Internet Explorer six and -- real answers here.
What is the what is the browser that you using that is older than it should be.
Like him what is the oldest browser out there I wanna find out who's still running like Netscape navigator -- -- area so send us -- message via Blackberry messenger tore pin number 245.
23 C 65 and be -- here I wanna know really.
What browser you're using that is maybe a little outdated and why you know and why the big question is why you know obviously most of our listeners probably have a -- exactly but can't have an old one there as well for some weird -- let us know so what -- -- -- -- -- but if they're not even like -- web -- easy -- -- --
-- -- --
The you can find all the show notes about this and all of -- other episodes below dot cnet.com. You can email us buzz at cnet.com and -- -- -- -- short message.
All right and -- thanks everyone have a great weekend.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
Just to -- really mean really means he's the reason evidently -- yesterday to show it really long.
And we had and happy and voicemail in its place so you know it's not the got to get a break and be honest we haven't really been receiving a whole lot of new remixes or really.
-- mention any lately.
