Culture
It's Wednesday in the. Winnipeg and that he doesn't help time Bryant though I am Molly let -- welcome to -- out -- and it might get it. Ultimately it's up that thirteen 160 what you assistant number every line might food here is getting their commitment to music and you are. I can see a halo is also the first of -- so happy and while. -- -- Later in the month that advocates think it's really early -- it'd be in heaven can you think they now need to -- presently every single -- -- December and wife Sydney. Make it election why shouldn't -- -- and now as beautiful smart imperfect and he would. That is the name that I can see it halo everytime I can -- -- And I'm gonna stop. Though it sometimes you wanna do regular update. About what's happening in the world that I think that's what people on the show -- -- -- Actually they come to the -- for news like this but -- amount to about Verizon is launching its four G wireless network. On Sunday December December -- that this so about 70% of thirty markets that they said they had initially get into. Will be getting their LT network long term evolution. Areas including New York City Chicago Los Angeles Boston and. Our home sweet home -- -- Francis -- Ayala. -- lunching in 38 markets completely they'll get server error I originally at. And they will get service starting Sunday it'll have street view maps available on flights starting -- to show the exact location for the network is available -- so far. Like sprint -- -- with the WiMax rollout that. Litter you know I don't know what you're doing a radio station temperatures go and they were aryan LA. And they were saying of -- here and in Cuba later recount that's definitely -- -- body -- for now with all the cool service will be available more than sixty airports. In which will be hot. And operate thinks -- mostly right I mean and not mostly bit right now you can only -- it with USB. You know pop up now -- -- data plans and hardware that's gonna be available because -- -- -- like only us LT but. Don't even know of any LTE Verizon's the technical experts holders get they're gonna have to USB modems can like those portable modem cards on the for -- LTE network. The handset -- -- -- be expected by mid 2011 so we're still a little ways from there. Dale wise it's by being planned for fifty dollars per month or ten gigs for eighty dollars per month. And ten dollars. Predict overseas which is actually cheaper they say than Verizon's current sport -- three GUSB modems that appear to start at sixty dollars a month for five -- anything tonight and British and that is the -- though. It it -- surprisingly a little cheaper although I'm sure that once those hands that's -- Elena you can expect the additional ten dollars a month. Cost for that but -- The Verizon has been saying. For awhile that they are planning to have a pretty big CES and he and I think this is part of the reason the packet -- -- -- my prediction yet as that there when I can hear about a road -- and at the yet. At all not up number and what about all not for Verizon but from Apple probably by the end of the month. Now you're gonna say no useful ambient -- I thought I would I mean I've been him. For awhile I would like it's coming tomorrow in -- -- it's like well -- -- talkative you Verizon people here in there like corporate communications you know -- -- and it might be one of those things that -- Apple literally it can drop the bomb on everybody right I don't try these days ahead of time in the Indian cycle we're in -- Apple's -- and Apple definitely be the one who does that though not her -- Overture. In the I don't think it happening yet but -- That's my little tiny baby prediction -- The best thing about this orgy -- though they're coming out strongly -- -- it was -- it was in the few markets Thursday they're rolling out pretty heavy so this is -- at least you know. They -- -- from what's printed in Roanoke the -- so people know what's going on yeah it's gonna be a pretty cohesive like launch right off the bat. Yeah absolutely and -- there is a pretty it's kind of a lot of market. I mean a 38 is in the definitely big Rolla. They are also lets you there was little -- they're not -- allow voice over IP. -- -- out of the gate which I suspect would also include video calling meth and -- -- with an appetite that -- Front facing cameras and the new going to be the new black and bones in the next year in of the ancient human male that over there. Probably small in somewhat fragile. Four G network initially but. It's common people it's -- -- it's come -- and it's good because we need all other -- wire in broadband network to work with. The worst -- -- Comcast try to break it now I'm getting a little update on yesterday as level three contest dispute contest. Today basically -- late yesterday. Put out their own letter to the FCC. Responding to level -- complaints not much. In there that we didn't say yesterday. That but Comcast wanted to reiterate that what they think -- level three is doing is that they were a backbone provider. Now they're trying to act. As a backbone provider and Expedia and like Akamai but not have to pay to deliver video content like Akamai did when -- have a Netflix. Yelled one small. -- ethics at the hard line and -- my but it looks like in this letter itself. What happened is went up my first suggests that first told Comcast that all we need more ports mean we need more -- -- -- -- to your network. Comcast initially provided them with six ports and no charge they wanted something around when he said so Comcast's from a goodwill -- -- would like. Okay then they kind of figured out what level three was trying to do was to get access to their network they. The request for 27 contests and said okay we -- 86. World we're willing to open up when he more ports for your bandwidth. But that's when will you like no we should get those ports for free because we have -- peering agreement already until at least it shows that Comcast did take some goodwill in an at least initially you know or at -- -- the -- the outfit okay -- He says he said -- It doesn't say -- not everything that Comcast didn't do that I'm just saying that's that it at this point -- is a huge he said she said. And they're coming on backing for the -- thing we absolutely did not. Say often take a minute bitterly -- and I think that's the thing in that we Berkshire at least it was a soft there's at least according contest it was softer. A stance and was first picked -- I'm happy to super super bad guy in that they -- only I think their ball -- I mean really the end result is that no matter what's gonna happen like. -- this is something that. So as CD indicated an as a means that the term of the content delivery network that what partly sparked this is that. And there is a really interesting article that was going around late yesterday that have that the reason that level three -- and Netflix delivery contest from. Our contract from optimize was that they intended all I can basically steal Comcast -- that they were able to offer a lower price to Netflix. For delivering that content -- -- and I was because optimize and other content pure play content delivery network. Do you have to pay -- -- somebody like Comcast to deliver that. That content so. Let's be clear these guys is do you already get paid on -- and to get paid by you. And they get paid by the people who want to deliver content onto their networks. And then they want all the more money from all kinds of different -- that's why they're trying to keep their model and that's why -- and while -- Yeah exactly so. Did it anyway -- the threat of yesterday said. Yes -- level three was able to totally effort -- a great price because they were planning to just take advantage of this peering agreement. More than quadruple the amount of traffic that they're putting out Comcast lines and then hopefully not have to -- Them. -- -- day everyone knows -- noble houses can affect consumers Comcast outright said they will not. Block any access to Netflix date because -- dispute ranked at the end of the day there's clinic if it gets to that have a level the ability deliberations. Have a mediator come in between them to resolve this but. Netflix is not gonna be shut down just because -- level 3COM -- That's the -- -- will feed you think they would just turn it off. While I mean various the UK it if you look at the way that like the carriage licensing -- had -- on the TV's I mean. They did that was that way the New York -- look at new York and bath and not getting fox. Like you this can get pretty bad it definitely -- -- it's all about money and the other bottom line about -- is that if anybody's gonna and a -- as bright -- with. Consumers as usual on that note a little bit the FCC does plan to announce on Wednesday its new proposal for net neutrality. -- -- They are. Been in a nutshell they're apparently going to proposed. A version of net neutrality regulations that would be a little tougher than say Verizon and Google had originally -- or in terms of especially. Exempting wireless networks from net neutrality regulations. But it would not. Change the way that there -- FCC -- broadband providers that they would still be regulated. As an information service which is a pretty light level of regulation not as the common carrier with some people asked or because -- These people can't be tested and then they would they would have had to be basically reclassified. But that's not -- not gonna proposed rate -- classification according to and so the Associated Press got an advance copy of the speech. It would basically say wired broadband providers would have to let subscribers access all legal content applications and services. Including Netflix. With the flexibility to manage their own network congestion. Wireless providers would have to disclose their network management practices and they would be prohibited from blocking access to web -- are competing applications like VoIP services. Which is different -- so Google and Verizon when they had -- that original plan about it that and only asked for transparency not any like restriction on blocking. Sites -- content. So that's a little bit better but then it would leave the regulatory framework in place. Now they also said though that. With the new with the new rules of -- -- that. The -- companies could would be able to sample -- usage based pricing. With -- -- -- deal with that -- that the business plans and you know the higher tier models but. I guess if someone is really sucking up bandwidth -- on the planet happens -- -- -- and be able to charge for that. Yeah I mean it it may be that that is it does seem you know as we move forward and like wireless broadband networks are so. That so prevalent and so potentially -- you know the -- alternative to wired network that does seem a little unfair. That wired networks. Like wired broadband providers to charge a flat imminent -- it does make sense to charge -- usage. To have usage based pricing if it's the alternative to -- -- -- I'm starting at -- and data caps. -- -- -- If if you have just. A flat -- can only every is 215. When -- gigs a month by Time Warner -- -- that you're. Roadrunner like that doesn't work Agatha Brothers may be paid more than that I'm not -- -- -- -- And try to think about all the various things -- have -- about that particular position over the past years over the past year and a half the tube or five and can pick up her. -- threat the pathetic. Anyway okay. That's the net neutrality a paper today. In other big news of the day I'm like a -- thing. Google is apparently going to lives they say the Wall Street Journal that is in the final stages of watching -- long awaited e-book retailing mr. Yes so what's different about this model is that they're going to offer the ability for you to. Get access to -- but they're not gonna be able to have an exclusive device that them they're hoping to use it to the browser so. Obviously every device out there has web browser so their goal is that. You don't have to have any special lap you just have to have a device that has a connection to the Internet and you'll be able to access but they're -- what they're calling what Google editions handle -- open call -- And there are key details missing still including what percentage of revenue Google share with independent but certain other retailers it's also not clear how many books selling partners. Who have lined up. I hope this isn't one of its Google TV executives -- but they don't have any but after that turns out that night in a work. I would say if the a royalty scheme is pretty much the same as what the others are offering it. We won't see any light you know fracturing or cern. -- publishing houses not being available on their Google editions platform and as long as the royalties are online now one thing that -- -- -- that because obviously Google. Runs the search show. They have the ability to use this is a proper -- over on the right hand side of a column suggests books that are available. Through search based only looking for that -- Google -- you can then potentially get the books they have a lot more publicity -- policeman. Of Google editions potentially where people -- accident it will be like -- to storefront. We've taken out -- -- I can already tell you that justice or the EU is not gonna be happy about. Amazon not gonna get at them I'm not gonna happen oh well all -- it does become the played unbelievable the integrated model right right -- can you -- -- handle getting the search Google or Google offers the service few potentially participate or purchase I think Google never really had a star -- -- this is gonna be. Now you can stay on Google and you can start paying them on Google and look -- -- about -- there's gonna be a cooking book about carrots and there's going to be a group on about terrorists. Baja. And there's gonna be a map of -- -- farms here neighborhood. And restaurants providing parents Paul and carry it reviews I'll and the best carrot cake that's -- cake totally at whatever -- -- they're -- -- and all of that your neighbors but you like it all of this happened and he never even actually the Google universe. And -- there be taken -- than. I -- -- like a little bit more about. Welcome back everybody now you guys love your. A new report from change wave research says that the iPad share among. Is up 16%. To thirty -- percent. Basically what happened is that the iPad rose and -- share. Dropped fifteen points to 47%. About gap between the two is slowly -- -- and of the whole debate between. Versus LCD or single function versus multi function device that's happening. That there's there's they're getting closer to each other. Though it's really interesting about this though is that they don't talk about what app people are using to read those -- in the Kindle has I think -- 65% marketshare in terms of just over all. E-book usage and sales and I think of that is all about. The software know that the genius thing and Amazon has done is -- lecture yeah. Okay our Kindle marketshare may be down to 47% which is still very healthy. But. And that's just among you readers but in as far as we -- can we had a similar report about iBooks are not taken up at -- yet ready these mammoth gonna. -- -- -- It's pretty interesting yeah it's also interesting that the I will be very curious to see what these numbers -- like after the holidays -- -- there's a hunt and interest. In the Kindle three and it might just be in the little. Universe. That we live in that likely people are asking about gift ideas and sent -- Kindle three is huge -- that it's so much cheaper. Get a Kindle three device those is a device that for like definitely crosses the holds little tech bubble that -- I -- it the and here's the thing they also said 90% Kindle owners more likely to read books on the device will that make sense -- that's really what it's for 76% of iPad owners. I don't think -- -- -- let's. While some of these surveys are amazing maybe like earth as newspapers there's something no Elizabeth for his reading at all because some parents and some people who just got three and of the Kindle. Patterson -- I have read more now that I have a device that has backed. I definitely do but then I still love buying a book on vacation that's a real book and I'm not to get -- iPad to the beach now I would to vaccinate -- I would tell the Kindle three to the beach -- -- -- their name. Are vastly and I think that's why people still prefer those over olive you know you're gonna have a dedicated reader like definitely not I -- -- have all. And it quickly detect and -- to take effect inventory of your house and I'm it would hurt the -- and on the train but it would hurt even more orderly and -- on right exactly. If and a lot of any aesthetic and and if it's good they're currently -- Now and -- panel drink -- Wiki leaks today that drama over Wiki -- continues not even natural in the cable -- -- diplomatic gossip anymore. But now supposedly there were early reports that Wiki -- -- coming and -- all kinds of denial distributed denial of service -- At least one. Hacker who's calling itself and how activist says that he was the guy who knocked it offline for several hours through Didi -- -- become the jester looked out. And the Internet has really turned on. -- it is kind of interesting all by itself but then now all MSNBC is reporting that with. What's going on either in addition to you or as opposed to. Those dvi to pack is that Amazon.com. Which -- its main web host -- -- like. Kicked it off or that they left until the site is down now may be in -- you can totally imagine them and then. And we've had it with the constant media -- that you can't live here anymore. But they have somehow been evicted. I did she know how the Internet community reacted because -- can we also received some of responses where will we were like I don't we feel about this because. Something's behind closed doors are meant to happen behind closed doors. I remember reading emails -- people -- you'll actually know we should know as much information as possible. It depends on what so that when you wanna be on but the fact that the Internet was like no we actually are in approval we don't approve of the stuff we're going to take you down. Yeah it's really interesting that founder of Wikipedia said that Wiki -- was being super irresponsible on bordering on criminal. I mean it's definitely not and has been embraced it hasn't embraced and and I think that's a really interesting -- is that it's a really interesting response by the web community because obviously the Internet community and is a little information wants to be free. Kind of community you know but in this case it's like you know what. There doesn't seem to be any benefit to that it's sort of like information wants me freeze or can help people but all this really seems to be doing is. Creating problems and and -- creating. Global geopolitical problems and I don't know not the way I think that a lot of people on the web want to see the idea of an open data or an open information. Yeah I think that -- has a lot of but I cannot laugh at those covered on the news was pretty much like drama right there wasn't any. -- Political anything there and there aren't any actual. Make -- -- anything happened at all like on a diet ugly gray line this key is whatever. On top exactly and they just I think it and then you can put -- -- they went too far out of lake via. They -- is the thing that's really good until the one person -- -- it and wickedly kind of ruined like. -- -- -- And -- not only yup the title the motivations of the company what was really behind it -- it wasn't really. The goodwill of information probably knots -- I'm gonna put up in the show -- have we did a report. -- -- -- -- John Young who is a guy who registered the domain name the unique org and the founder of propellant and I think it's -- really interesting and you have it open at the show notes on -- and chat room. My tech it. -- some perspective of the companies yeah yeah he's started -- to register the domain but then is not happy about what it is not about how. Yeah -- -- and it's pretty -- in -- sciences. If it believes the ads running now -- -- -- -- he's having some trouble you'll probably hear about it menus in their -- -- after him. It is that the I in other anarchist moves down to. That co-founder of the pirate bay Peterson has started a new project to provide a decentralized PPP eight the NS system. Because now the US government is exerting as we know it in seen. Potentially First Amendment violating. And they -- the government is taking down domains at their behest of the entertainment industry. And has this is like what everyone was afraid of because -- US department of -- -- -- I can't that the US has -- the insert promptly trampling all over the Internet now that it's happening. PP -- But what -- they gotta do now yeah I like and how it. Then looked AS AP to PD NS is a community project double free Internet users from imperial control. Of DNS by -- Imperial genital -- track that down. Due to a director of marketing content. No the no central -- points of failure but -- -- are gonna yesterday again that's what's gonna happen. To the web is that we will start that he had fracturing into a bunch of different you know. Private or PP gains in math. Systems that can now -- -- this is the rebel the -- exactly and if there. Now if you want anything -- more often when you make it. That you wanna be a rebel with your note the -- Kohler has been -- rooted. So we all know the note is the color LC DE reader with the web browser. 800 megahertz processor. Axed the -- The fine people and XTA it not been able to route -- he could install apps like. Angry Birds and essentially take control this device. As a tablet device for and it's 250 dollars via so if you're a hacker that wants to get -- -- white not gonna -- the device. That's going to be able to run despite the cortex A eight processor for 250 dollars at. -- like it here if you're comfortable with reading and reading really at this point has incentives -- become -- -- -- one click process like you may see some instability afterward. But it's very doable for almost everybody. Whether you could argue whether it should be like certainly helped keep 100 farms or with like YouTube's think that hacking -- -- -- them. Reading is just for -- But if you are savvy. The 250 dollar full pledged seven inch Android tablet in Brandon Presley got -- have done and done. Also. Will Barnes and nobles like block this Marino is the release -- patent the whole patent game mouse of Reading I don't know if depending on who's behind the updates for this -- Barnes & Noble I don't know if they're the type -- -- -- that's gonna be as aggressive about that at home is in in their DNA is are they gonna be like a no we need -- it's like -- Apple to like -- even Verizon -- anything that's gonna. The cable to just quickly jump on this. And they also and -- and you will they want to -- have a very low market generic and amp and they only have 4% market share compared to those other two. And if this is the kind of thing that gets the -- movement -- they really might go for. Then approached the microphone attachment -- -- like we really love it but now that we've seen how how fired -- people are back in the Kindle or the -- We. We meant it to be like analog to pick up. I had with ala will open I don't think I -- -- level of impact and and they didn't have it because this can definitely move -- In other news I OS four point two recently released -- been found that -- supports technology for reducing the network congestion in this is a big deal obviously. Anyone -- use the iPhone in from coast to coast. So they've found that tests from Nokia Siemens networks found Siemens networks found that it has support for network controlled -- pharmacy technology which basically. Not only improves the battery life but most importantly minimizes the network congestion and now the trick is also it has to be on the carrier side implemented. It's unclear AT&T has put this in -- now -- -- but. You can imagine that they went and implemented really soon if it does because -- -- one of the issues with Apple app actually Apple's safari browser the way that. It sucked in data it wasn't compressed it was a full full -- data so it bog down the network that alone. -- been able to support this technology. Well not only help AT&T but help Verizon's networks and I wonder if it almost might be a PR -- -- when Verizon gets -- like the iPhone works perfectly fine on our network has. Where you think yes it beautiful. It's very interesting and it's really good timing because it does it does suggest that you know -- go to city go to Verizon Verizon's network -- -- handle it better but -- that was the early complaint about the -- and not only. -- its users not only -- people snap -- up in Arctic areas. And -- its users and use more data and there are being bigger in on the network but that on top of that the iPhone itself. The way that it connected network. Of more demanding and -- -- remember -- universities and but that -- -- are an owner campus because of the -- and the like I'm in addition to being injured in any. A pretty good technological development there. -- a little -- -- the big news let's move onto the cricket. Twitter has now decided it tests -- it -- pretty sure that you're not trying to pretend to be in Canada and it's getting -- and the verified account system it has not and taken down the icons that -- aimed at users -- -- -- -- will continue to. There -- selectively verify accounts most at risk for -- nation on a one up and highly irregular beat. Please -- in an email hoping to get there hide -- -- The hottest -- celebrity uber famous eight years and media I think it's like if -- the president in India in appeared. -- -- In. We were just talking about the pre show really by now most. Of the celebrities out of society got on Twitter -- on Twitter and and you -- selling most of the makers are pretty. -- I love the fictional characters and -- -- the -- look technically a little political. And a but it -- think of people I mean people do like that -- knowledge that people sometimes ask me. The -- it's not where I am. Not -- -- It's easier it out rightly there are those that can't it. It's weird it is definitely weird that Twitter rolled out. In the first and is now getting rid of it like a winner in this without much work I can't hire them and people listener by county probably other management that are. Also a quick -- Virgin Media TV. It's a new set top -- -- -- powered. By TiVo's software. With a one terabyte hard drive it'll one unique feature it also have three tutors who have been able to record triple program mean it uses the Tivo remote. I wonder if you connect get access to the second quarter of the processor so that. It would be sad actually be whole area is not -- if the Tivo interface was better and -- more smoothly on this device. I economic actually -- -- it's not the same hardware and fortunately it's gonna be available in the UK only right now in the probably will stay in the UK mid December. -- -- But figures -- that's a good sign it's the first Tivo powered set top box that were helpful. Facebook's co-founder Chris Hughes has officially launched a site called you well -- he is describing as a social network. First social activism so it'll let you discover causes that matter to you and your friends and an over time keeping -- -- -- -- and by keeping -- he means you know come up with more donation opportunities but. Also. The -- on rumor that won't go away. Supposedly today the board it's like the rumor on the rumor of the thing that hasn't happened but is gonna happen but still rumored. Group fund's board will be meeting today. The event of -- -- tomorrow but it's today to decide on the Google deal if they want the bottom by Google if they wanna stay independent considered IPO. Who knows -- -- where into the -- there's a lot of. Today another case but they -- The comments -- and using a common feature collect the following response welcome. But it doesn't fit that commented that earlier -- yet but isn't yet. Ignore the extremely bad video in -- Steve I -- -- -- That suggests that all sides seem to be pointing three PlayStation Portable phone -- Coming December 9. -- So this morning we are like on the block on the video game blogs they just -- ism no one had any mention of this. -- if this is happening with it looks like there's also a link on to the invitation. Which features. So -- logo with like the PlayStation buttons and a phone button. -- -- -- button that that looks exactly like it with the -- of places -- on those notes in part on the top left. It does. Insisting and it's so it's it in French it says you're invited to basically the biggest presentation of the last ten years. On December ninth. Twenty hours with 21 dollars and -- a 8888. PM minus when he minus. Okay got it in our -- it seemed so and it's -- that it may -- Sony Ericsson France potentially unveiling and -- what if it's. Only like available only you can -- be -- -- -- on the bathroom that these are in Europe in IE but the Leo I mean there's the the video. Looks like any other phone it's not you can even tell it to gaming on it could be and yeah. Now that are okay and look at it don't look at video is not helping but interesting friends imitation. In other gadgets -- in other gadgets that I might like or heard -- slot that Google Earth now features 380 three's. So the engineers at Google lot of work -- this arm I don't know if they change based on seasonality or color. The -- Google has added three trees the latest version of cooler -- and it. And are asking if it -- Wow how amazing is -- worth my process cycle I don't know. -- And -- I don't I'm inclined to think no. I can go to the range of personal reasons jury territory the -- in Brazil now go to the rainforest trees and thirty character -- of the Greenbelt movement. In -- -- reforestation said in Kenya which looks like my Sega Genesis that. Amazing. There -- -- a lot of different departments a rig called. A. Bush says there had -- the network as we have had some pretty awesome times news out of capacity but keeping keep this -- and yeah plus news news. The entire Internet seems to want to come out and buzz kill our. Absolutely. Overwhelming excitement about NASA's -- our brand tomorrow. For example headlines like this -- universe today dot com would stay calm down NASA hasn't -- any alien whatever thing. While you'll. The Atlantic senior editor. Elect a month ago that -- -- sad to quell some of excitement about possible and if -- terrestrial life I've seen the science paper it's not that. -- Honestly I hope this is like some -- Covert Apple thing -- NASA those nights we just showed you the wrong paper variety. I want aliens skeletal remains. -- or nothing. Just because some participants you -- in fields that are related to oceanography here acknowledge your -- -- does not mean that they serve as a required here cannot make an announcement. -- life other than that and earth has been discovered. Speculative bloggers. -- however. But ever -- as you know that I'm I'm over this. I want a happy ending. And to dozens. When there are from Mars -- have been better part of men are from Mars women are from Venus or in this case the women -- Apple's iPhone and men prefer Google's Android. -- so a survey from Nielsen you know pulled people what phone they looking for. On the they found that. When viewed by gender. 32% six email response that they wanted an Android phone while 20% -- the iPhone the women on the other hand Charlie prefer the iPhone thirty. Point 9%. While 22%. Of women so they would get -- -- device. Which leads me to think that. In our studio -- has. A -- it acts. And that is the Android -- -- like the -- and and I have. Was that say about me I don't I don't take care of my hair I don't put on my hair I don't put on make up -- certainly there. You might -- pretty how do they know about may have. I'm. It does a lot whenever I am always and -- -- -- girl. Owning your girl -- Madera. -- is world aids day and that they that are not. At all at how. Ending but it is world aids day there's a project happening on Twitter that you might actually find to be -- tiny bit of a relief various celebrities are going dark. On Twitter and FaceBook. -- so that they as part of a one million dollar fund raiser for world aids day so there if you follow any celebrities are participating in this. That you'll -- a post that says like. IPhone Ryan Seacrest that that -- -- that it. And then go here to this. Lastly statement investment and you'd then there will be videos featuring them as lying in half and misrepresent what the campaign -- calling their digital. So there's like two sides the story read okay says celebrities disappear. So that we pay money to an organization in hopes that the celebrities come back. Why don't they just stale -- of soot and promote the cause which is probably more likely to have someone donate. Yeah but that on the flip side. It's kind of a good thing that they're disappearing now because. I mean fiercely I don't mind if we get the spun up to 999. 1999. Dollars. And just keep it at that we don't have the one million and all these people like the card -- in all I got any comeback and they. Policy and everything that's at dollar donation Tony I send out that points and now and the world will be about a play it definitely I get the pain like -- -- -- -- not -- meaning also that this this makes the perfect time to go impersonating celebrities because they're all gonna. And there's no -- verification. Had. I don't really wanna create -- -- That account saying I -- back Seacrest out. Actually have the retirement suggesting tweeters on the that you -- you impersonate an account but -- like -- -- and that's okay. That is -- And anyway it's definitely probably -- owning -- And and enjoy your spam free liberty -- like I said donate up to 90919. PM and then.
