Ep. 1312: Poor little Tweetiebird gets a worm

Culture
Right so I'm Jason Howell dot -- -- in the middle of the -- lab. Boom boom -- -- has -- eternally episode 1000. 312. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But the united. -- -- She Apple notwithstanding I think it's good to get these time with people home office -- and it can't say that anymore they forget about you yes. It runs a surprise -- Jones author of accommodate what you do here I do like an editor name -- John. Foul came right I guess it's kind of it's talking -- -- an announcement that it. To -- the -- go home -- stuff. Anyway our first story is not a home -- story it is they Twitter story a pale pale worm -- fail warmed. The site. Twitter.com not -- -- the third party apps. Got invaded by a JavaScript -- cross -- JavaScript. Exploit which when he went to the site. And mouse over it it would. Re tweak your stuff and -- -- sites yet -- and so -- we're -- black that's nice of you we're going directed porn sites is pretty bad eating up to click anything was essentially just a roll over in the -- -- -- out -- mention would you. And savory things this is and this is not the way -- supposed to be and this is only on people that are still on the old version of the Twitter site not a new one. Right which is goes to the other story that's related to this which was the Twitter may have known about this a month ago and that's why would potentially we don't know. That the new Twitter which some people have. The with the wider display. Was not -- vulnerable does that split the ultra come -- narrowed -- about com one. The important news. Or or they just made so many changes to the new Twitter and it inadvertently they haven't fixed it by mistake yeah exactly if it is there any like. Ryan we like -- Twitter news this -- screens opinions that we could protest outside that's under a 140 characters that yeah well most the most appropriate signs are. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The -- -- what it Woodard is in -- -- now is they fixed it. They did you you don't you'll come across that you guys -- -- alright in about four hours once it's there was it was. Was the guy who. Put it out there. He put it out there and it spread extremely fast and people start to modify -- Magnus Holm via an effort to modify it it was an -- access which is cross site scripting attack. It will this. Fully patched within hours which is pretty good. Anyway so if you don't want that happened you again use the new Twitter -- literate guy. -- -- -- -- But good things -- features -- so it is so. The other half of that story is that there are a little too new little features coming to Twitter. One of them is auto complete so you're now on twitter.com and you type. At B. From my case I'll get all the -- with one of which is Brian Tong and I'll just pop down -- though you'd you won't be doing as many typos you're trying to message -- -- -- -- yeah. That little features coming another one is replied also when you reply to it to a tweet. Complete with that that A Twitter post. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Or the person who who put them both it -- everybody's so it it makes conversations. More. -- gets more people -- Congress -- a feature that I never knew I needed until a couple weeks ago I noticed him as he's -- But one thing that they actually have the -- -- capita don't think they have on here is the ability to easily these like everybody else and just reply to the original yeah accidentally used to be. Notified all of -- and yet done checked it quickly tell twittered. Your -- you to all the -- can't undo it you can undo it but on a light on some of these other clients they have an extra feature that allows you -- I -- yeah -- -- it makes a little bit easier so many of but it seems always be playing a little -- to catch up with these new features like year old mountain. That kind there quite. Well you raise an excellent point which -- -- thanks you so much for you now. That you really have -- that you can't just automatically say reply post and and not look at the screen even those who knows what they're how what they're changing what they're gonna be doing more and yet. They did they -- but not yet enact the URL shorten -- built in our -- it's remembering that is zero shorter and their right now. URL -- sorry everybody. -- earlier time I didn't hear about that. We have just fantasizing about a -- I want I would have on the chat room says yes of course you can be saying yes too many thanks to the and everything are like I am having that that sharpener. A long time. Twitter site and it wasn't always there if it was always there I guess some -- -- -- I -- from other sites that yeah it's definitely have. -- chartered society -- -- -- the needs it anyway. So. And -- on this story surfaced the day or so ago but it's moving up right now it's getting some play it's Intel's. Initiative it's experiment I will call it to intentionally crippled some of the CP news and use word advisedly. That are going into mid -- -- piece the -- -- PCs are being sold at best buy. And then if you want to make your computer faster. You. Go to Intel site where you get a card. That. For fifty dollars which will unlock some of the features in your CPU and make it after that -- the cache memory for example so you get the CPU which is capable of doing all these great things. You take it home. And if you want to really do all the stuff you really wanna unlock all those -- got to pay extra geek he go to Walgreens -- -- the gift card I'll get the Intel gift card they're pretty much it's a gift cards. Yeah that's instead -- mean if the thing about is it's targeting the lol the load and medium and user. Are they going to care about this you know. Well it's cheaper than a new computer via -- can put it off as long as you want it's a great gift hey I thought. Oh it's not suspect it is not -- -- one for my birthday. Gave me a fifty dollar card you'd unlock features a my CPU a look until the price -- Christmas it's gonna be the stockings stunner of the good gift thank you sunbeam RL three cache and hyper threading -- -- to everybody makes. Now these -- I would say the opinion on this is running about nine to ten and nine to one against that everybody's pretty upset they put this paper we capable chip. Out -- -- computers and then they intentionally withhold features unless you pay up you know at you -- Yeah I certainly understand that you know. You buy something. And you want all the features in the heart really got the -- we got the wire through there you know the transistors -- there wider than just do it supposed to do yet but there's a long history of this kind of thing I think they do this because they don't wanna make -- -- at the -- don't happen -- -- -- bunch of different kinds of chips now I know when you -- And then just like paper unlocking it from one. Oddly enough the way the chip industry works is that. Different speed levels and then again different features on chips are they're -- built and not not all -- not it's not like an I three and I seven -- the exact same chip but. You know they'll they'll take these chips and the make a whole bunch and then they'll do what's called -- -- which is they can test them. And the ones that pass certain test it -- at a higher spec than others and the others gets old and sometimes locked down -- those lower spec so that work we're doing higher ones are SEC over clockers basically yes sort of yet there they know -- run faster they know the memory work so they they marked -- they sell them for more of the better. So the hardware is is always been the same this is just taking that concept and kind of pushing it out to the consumer -- But. That to the people Europe complaining about this it it is just in some ways -- chip is. You know physical instantiate them and intellectual property and if you go to Netflix you don't because all the content on -- -- you don't automatically get all of it for you for free. But that's between. Service. And a piece of hardware and what can whatever it but that web calling question is how different is it really. It's. I think it's it's a huge perception to get it -- into the cynicism people have about really the entire consumer industrialised and -- now. Presenting its sort of software -- like this it's it's kind of like oh they just commented out you know the higher feature set and yeah. Well winter -- this is the -- I mean you can do in place upgrade ZoneAlarm software including windows. And I think that -- yeah people don't you just just give it the way it is and told him I mean if you don't get -- for my birthday I'm not to mention is just horribly confusing. Board the general consumer even for us it's -- confusing you know video -- consumer one of the things -- and that is that is interesting about this is that this is a low end machine and blowing chip and not doing this. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah -- the code for the -- I mean that the ridiculous not cool -- totally or are high -- or Blu-ray. Player that'll link that has the capability of doing -- EP. But they didn't have any idea to pay extra fees get access Linux it's a slippery -- so that you say -- -- that if you buy. A team that you know you can. By credit organs -- up -- that you should just get those for one the upfront and everybody should pay the same and that's the thing that's that is definitely a difference is the difference situation it's a certain it is a service where you're buying hardware I think you. Are paying money and and you assume that everything contained within that hardware and the abilities -- with and are now yours because you paid the money and you own it and a -- it just seems so very rudimentary and unnecessary. -- really is a perception issue council. Brilliant really from just like just a bit and -- point of sale. It. We'll see how this works -- because of a salesperson is gonna happen and tell them about and -- they're -- a dead -- it's. We'll see objects I mean I think you're intellectually correct it's not that they can different story but I think that emotional issues again and again I I don't think I don't think consumers will like -- -- -- -- what's going on now but no no no way. But -- be lumped together with you know that's by a -- -- the Chinese -- buy a warranty and everything to -- like you know the warranty and a fifty -- access to -- capabilities of CNN consumer CPU I don't know but it makes -- computer better okay yeah. And stuff because in the best buy employees has -- -- it was out there no I'm not I'm not saying there than it did say I did that last time I do that allowed on I -- Darrel in children is gonna be like I don't know and in billing via but it's better. They're gonna they're gonna be -- righteously IPOs -- -- -- him and I'm buying this thing and I gotta pay -- to make it work right yeah no thank you -- you yeah. Anyway speaking of -- speaking of which. There's a very very interesting story. Techcrunch this morning call FaceBook has quietly implemented they -- back to follow feature FaceBook it's changed. The way you reject incoming friend requests used to be. You'd be either confirm or ignore button announce that is that -- thing ignore it's like. Put off till later. Don't ever get exactly what button is called is it is it in effect now. Yes okay I just I just got a friend requests and it still gives me the confirm or not now not now not change easily confirm or ignore. Not now here's the thing. What not now does is it doesn't actually. -- you that person cannot see your posts what it does is it takes that and now gives you the the the follow an option to finally confirm or ignore but you don't see that ignore button until you click on -- -- -- -- -- -- -- now here's the thing about. Not ignore about neither confirming nor actually ignoring. If you send -- -- friend requests for an request. You can then get all my public stuff into your feet tall tales you'll -- activity would say at least requests and kill yes. Until I ignore you and then that would you don't see that -- going to my page. Directly so when I don't say not now to your friend will follow quest. You still get that I don't really know because I haven't ignored you I'd just put off the decision to later and FaceBook has decided to hide that this as well so you're now following that its interest in the really good news here is that they're gonna sell a fifty dollar unlocked. -- did that there -- an -- anybody else like that that is pupil. -- it's interesting it does take what you're used to seeing the what you being used to seeing to an entirely new page. Why are they doing that I've noticed so many changes in the friend request. Kind of page that you that you had over the last I don't know six or eight months it's like three or four different iteration of this -- -- request page. Yeah I mean I guess it doesn't surprise me that it's very confusing yeah -- basically today. They're trying to -- -- network. And yeah I do this -- -- -- making it easier to follow people harder to have people not -- you who don't want value and it's just it's makes it. Easier to say yes. And much much harder to say note or you don't even know or you don't even know what you're saying yes or no to I know because like ordinary sort of -- the station in vagueness initiative yeah. The Germans by the -- are big fans of obfuscation. Apparently they have a special work without a price sounds like a German -- doesn't. Anyway. And speaking a German V. The Germans in it this is in in regards to the whole pharmacy thing around -- street view. If you are in Germany you can now opt out of the street view of your house. And apparently hundreds of thousands of Germans -- that nine we do not want. There's nothing to Google to be taking pictures of the front of our houses. Please wore us out of street -- It very very popular feature. And -- professor of technology that tells the BBC's -- funny. German Germany -- excellent technology for building engines for example but it's not a revolution. It's about improving existing knowledge -- basically. -- -- fingers and aversion to this new technology in which -- -- interest it's a very tech -- culture is not. You would think. Tech Florida compared like what other countries I mean in -- about it but I think the like Japan and Germany -- I don't know -- in W come from. -- it -- I mean there's always. A certain point where there's the social norm you know in this case. Privacy -- -- you don't wanna jump in the pool German. German and Germany and many other EU countries are very. Give the user the and the Internet -- -- a lot more privacy rights we get here in the US. What do you think things about this is that this is for street view which is the mobile view where you can see -- -- houses which is what public. I mean that's by nature of the public view of your house with their. But they don't have here is ERG that's what I wanna obscure I mean if if price you know I had satellite view of gab about my yard you know the layout of where everything is. -- where you can sneak into the back your house right exactly does that. Alright now this next story come we have all heard many stories about the -- and I found that we're sick of it but this specifically. Survey was done by Credit Suisse just to find out how many people actually. The -- or how bad would it hurt once over AT&T want to write an iPhone comes out so the results of survey BC show that 23%. Of current eighteen G customers would switch to Verizon while 63% of those -- customers would stay. And basically did that that number would not content or hurt AT&T as bad as everyone held everyone pilot you know it to 60% we just the fact over but it -- -- We -- about how many who -- actually is gonna. Up and drop their care that they've been using so long you know -- or Verizon. You would be that you'd be the customers that -- he doesn't want anyway it's like the whiners that think later you know getting crappy service. Those are the ones who would go be happy plus at -- go ahead -- -- -- 20% 20% in do we know what percentage of AT&T customers have the -- -- that's -- -- quality these are specific -- these -- from. Specific to iPhone costs subscribers okay yeah so did this survey was they talked iPhone subscribers not people who are part of AT&T. The the second part of the survey that kind of was also inching is that -- -- surveyed customers -- the whole. You know -- are you satisfied. With -- service 51%. Of those customers our iPhone users were not happy. So -- more people obviously more people are dissatisfied with ATT than they are with an iPhone versus customers that does have a -- and a phone non iPhone and so is -- -- -- an iPhone user also kind of expects all right they expected that. Whatever that the level of the ease of use and wanted to Honolulu and wouldn't be telling them what they can oh but is wonderful things -- can expect from a program that -- have been in -- -- their mind frame -- they're different consumer. -- they've been jobs watched you know what though I will say this at somebody's probably gonna stay with thinking -- because I'm one of those really lazy people and -- switching service. I want 23% of the absolutely could really -- -- been added they just you know Credit Suisse 20% sounds like a lot -- you would think. You know it's a huge -- the calculator is -- -- one point four million of AT&T iPhone subscribers so. -- but it's that it would have less of an impact -- -- -- like wind and ITT's stock went up yesterday after this after this reporter. I still think. With family plans and everything else there's just. Large hammer people on any carriers that are just gonna stay with its you grim death editor but -- to be like driving through the city during burning man like well. Nobody's here and here you know what I -- a misquoted this sorry 51% of -- -- total customers are satisfied 41 person but compared to 41% of -- iPhone -- Than just a little less satisfied yet for her -- get any -- so they can -- longer your own it. When any price and incentives not so much although I hear it's easier to get a micro so that now fix their crappy service also -- if I also even though -- don't know exactly you will why or what happened if -- A long term -- of you know locked in AT&T I was able to upgrade earlier when nation -- you know they give you with the latest iPhone. -- penalize knows only on it -- nine -- -- yup they know that to you. It's okay yes this they did so when it's one of the aftermath of Google instant. The new search page on Google -- if if if you result as you type is that Yahoo! says hey guess what we have the patent to. It's that we're certain search results. -- -- -- whose a senior VP of search and a former search leader at Google said that. He says we think we we -- the patents the stuff and furthermore. It's we don't like it that much. So we have the patents or an and we we try to experiment with it -- bought all the way up but we're not gonna roll up because we think it's the knowing. Yeah what they say is the the annoying part of -- instant search is that with every single character you entrance page refreshes. Which -- -- another bus that why don't. It's actually not true by the way to go ahead at a certain point I think after you -- enough characters it -- -- -- and it it doesn't. It waits until you. Not stop typing yeah but it doesn't every single character does. Talks yeah I guess what I was thinking is why don't the why didn't they build the service because -- that's common complaint is that it's really hard to look at and argues because splashing out all the time why not have the space to be the Q for instance search because -- your search terms are. More words separated by -- usually a space means that word is part of my search Q why not. Run the search based refresh is less cancel bit more accurate. I would I was I would say you need to go talk to them obviously any did you know get together on who's obviously added -- if there were chunks or names that are hard to -- Yeah oh yeah totally or there might be things like URLs that I'm gonna right in there -- -- But letters run together and you want to predict that and when I type in HOW I know what I want and not -- and it's now. Well I I type HOW ELL space. And -- where you're faster -- is the night. Did it Kennedy paper preferred placement on those things like well -- the -- has -- ever has in place in school with -- money yet. Our behavior is of their raw material. And with instant. They have or behavior data currency him at if -- After Mark Hurd got -- that HP went over Oracle and Oracle sued him. They have apparently all made -- and this is the middle by the way it -- eight Oracle open world which is -- be. -- that was. Just down the street shut down such an -- by the way Oracle open world is the only tech conference. That has enough money behind that actually shut down a major thoroughfare and -- really quite something. -- but it's good for the local health businesses. HP Oracle according to. HP CFO an interim CEO Cathy let's check HP and Oracle have been important partners more than twenty years and are committed to working together to provide exceptional products that are. We look forward to collaborating with or a future they have basically settled. And -- has given up some of his money. I think of his. His severance package. He is also agreed to protect the intellectual property of HP and Oracle. And HP has dropped the suit so economical work -- -- Yeah okay having -- -- -- -- public to -- morally. Each. From this whole situation. Well he probably had to sign a pretty strong legal agreement about the trade secrets and the -- and and the business relationship that he had an -- that he can't think or well. And of course. While Oracle and HB do come do cooperate and our partners they also compete now that Oracle sun. That I was you know it's pretty scary to have. You know your hardware CEO go. Two companies it makes you are where it and -- the software's well and it's kind of possibly do not compete agreement in California that. -- -- -- that's I think at this level you know this rare air that these guys are breathing anything's fair game because they have you know more. Lawyer money and anybody can. You know they don't call it -- -- and he -- something else make a legal. Not that I'm cynical about. Law or anything and another -- And a lot of minor little feature here that we all like finally Google green document editing to the Android into the iPad so no new impetus for Wii is the latest finally they talked about yesterday -- -- -- the switch has been turned on so basically. You know everyone wants to use their iPad and edited to what they -- -- Let. There. Yeah. -- Google of the Google dot editing in tandem Leo right before our eyes it's multi user announcing. There's an. Op in your case -- what's weird is that existed on Android already the ability do that I've done that planning at times in the -- it's just not easy so what I'm wondering is what are -- talking about document editing coming to Android because it was kind of already there it maybe it's in -- Hamburg inward -- looking at spreadsheet can be generated this and do you couldn't. You could view. For I don't know but you couldn't they couldn't edit Gould's work processing correct that's I -- completely -- this this. Is when weighed more useful rat out the top on something like that we have a lot more about cellular. And you expect to be able to edit the dock -- -- -- world we're all -- for this but the questioner asking earlier was. How well this work if you're an environment where they can connectivity is -- and now one. Mean well we'll see because we were here yeah that would qualify -- ten minutes. Anything about this is like I have no signal in here it -- the dead zone in its its you know. I'm sure what that they didn't go back into a -- it'll just -- -- -- that's what I'd be really you know -- paid to be testing with. Mission critical element ya Adam. They also Google also announced two factor security and Google apps that so it's not just password but it you have to confirm on your iPhone as an option for people using Google in the -- in the -- -- -- Which is what I thought it in -- -- really. Clever alright now so little -- you guys -- in this guy you might look at you might recognize this guy. So mr. double -- our friend from the double rainbow fame. Basically there's no way apply now has created. You know his own iPhone. -- called of course -- because you know -- he's he's he's rich now he's the team it's been so he got it it's not this is not yet -- is just look at it this is called the double rainbow -- and if you look very carefully. They get lately but double rainbow remotely across your thing is Olelo. All right so you can you can mr. in the sky already like make. And I have a double rainbow. That's great that minority make -- -- money from the the Microsoft that. Where. I get my identity that -- Basil this -- -- -- -- -- it this guys make it surely can make many movies you know this is free right it's 99 cents come on I am of course I paid colon -- bright you like. Hours -- black -- and probably throw out a robust is like a gap but he leaving it there yeah you're right here awesome solar ray thank shaking his -- collective Italian electric my head because I think probably more more money from ads and making it free and -- -- -- that's ridiculous but went -- and I went through nine and first and -- get into -- that's exactly to -- -- All the mileage on -- insignia all the way across store. Well does it mean. And I I think this is this is kind of heart warming and adorable moment but I'm beginning -- mrs. Now after being -- nobody was posted like a year and a half before it became bay it was like generally had a bunch of other. Videotape that you through this there are many times the do's video that he gets that kind of traction yet take advantage of the opportunity to vote in decades absolutely you go gallery mode if I got him -- of McDonald's -- -- perfect aren't we got some voice -- that you would like to send us. A voice mail and have your voice played on buzz out loud call 806162638. That's 806 from six feet and -- he. Populace that anything just -- a -- Personas from today's from Sam from Tampa. Win here theoretically. Nor is what. -- don't you know what -- just cut to an overhead shot. And then once you get the voice -- -- we can -- it later and it's possible. -- To confine it. To my drop box. On the fly editing we'll fix them post it is behind the scenes. Yeah. -- but its crew it's Sam from Tampa. I wanna comment on your story about Tivo adding -- to the Tivo premiere. If you look at the screen shots and or is using the new high definition user interface which is only available on the premier. -- data that. They do you plan on supporting the series three at a later date we shall see. Personally I wish people would focus on improving the user experience and some of their video offerings like Netflix and Amazon instead of focusing on. Audio only content. Etc. very good points -- for -- really glad that we're gonna have pandora on my Tivo and all the existing out there's there's three entities. But he's done at the time and -- -- right I mean you know he there was a video service. Let's make you know Amazon and Netflix that really -- and -- you're right but then at the same time all v.s set top boxes they're really trying to kind of integrate the best. On media on the land and that just so happens to include services like pandora -- people actually really want on the image that's the home theatre guy what he thinks. Oh what are you saying hello hello to all eyes turn to John I mean -- to see -- pretty much. Every it every device just like Netflix. But he is actually right. In that. It's so -- about the Tivo premiere is that still feels kind of -- beat the inner -- even kind of goes between the new high Def interface in the old -- definite yes and -- which these issues. The interfaces on some of these services like Netflix and you two but it -- they -- you blockbuster Amazon and Amazon. Our maybe not quite as flashy as you'll see especially on things like Apple TV going forward. And that's. You know if they wanna be that Hoover box that's what -- did you and -- I mean there I hope. There were in the background trying get to plus on their -- that's every time a new -- must have service like that comes up and they don't have it. A at all be in in best presentation it's a problem. -- -- so I have a very close buddy of mine who actually worked. -- that was contacted by the interface team to redo the entire you -- A Tivo and so they -- -- all but he was so fresh they when he saw the final -- because exactly said they split it up. In -- they've been an HD which and -- it -- -- for no reason like they they completely did all the you like to be on HD across the board. But again there. Tivo someone at the top made a decision like no we don't wanna do we don't. For whatever reason we don't wanna do this -- and and also another complicates what he was. You tell these video services there is not one ubiquitous -- that kind of makes them come together sure Netflix and Amazon and blocked -- are all have different UI's. In two to themselves. But Tivo and needs them -- -- -- one so that at all at least looks and feels relatively the same they still haven't. That meant either on everybody trying to do that but it's not the hearts of video player -- library. Make -- you know what you're get me going on Tivo and all the things I hate. But you're right I got this I get a regular orbit three TV and and something and the interface goes from the old Tivo to -- squished up because it's the -- interface. Which is I mean how hard can it be to build interface that I know I just -- I can't tell you how press zero anti opera to my body was when he saw it does he worked on -- but -- to see the final product -- this site like. What that. And -- -- and along with -- on their little Hugo ranting here significant Leona lewis' I have all my music stored on my Windows Home Server and the -- will actually stream that. But the music streaming app from the key though is not just it's not. It's not even in the oven it's barely functional. And how hard is it that having a good -- thing that let's use you know. Scan quickly through big library -- music and help him another frustration is the they've actually two is get podcasts on their in the -- one. Where it off to watch this show is. -- it seems like. Believe that game like like the Friday issue of -- up late Saturday afternoon if something's. I don't think there's any user controlled. Like how often I fresh that feeds and the only reason why we talk about excellent I mean that's -- -- we we. Obviously we all 33 of them for -- right now only TiVo's like we just want the product be better than it is right now because it could be it. It has a -- it's -- that she will just have the -- argument to be so much better I mean I love it and I -- at the same time and they don't even have beloved team that doesn't even have the -- problem at big companies that were there installed and hundreds and hundreds of millions of homes -- Still has a tiny user base considering what a problem all the product is -- -- the time to experiment make it better of course that -- money. Anyway we're and paying them -- subscribe to every month I know ability and step it up our right we have one email from joining the techno sexual. -- -- -- Doing -- doing that -- that on episode 3011 rape and gang suggests that Verizon's new plan would be a better deal than mobile -- talking about the protector phone plan. -- eight dollars a month per phone for Verizon's new protection plan it will cost -- subscriber 96 dollars annually for the same services offered by the find my phone features. With Apple's mobile me. However with mobile me you also get push email online storage back to my Mac computers thinking and screens. -- green screen sharing services -- -- however mobile me is not just the better value it is cheaper. Because of mobile me you can use find my phone with an unlimited number of Iowa devices. So those cool because we didn't yet we did not know how much the the that for total care protection plan for a Verizon costs. Yet so now -- -- too much. -- -- that appears -- John thank you so much for step in and today. Great to be here they they -- saying -- for making room from here -- absolutely so what can people do to follow more value in the things right. Well -- that would be -- -- -- -- and twitters CNET falcon thank you for its owner of course that's what we do here.
