Buzz Out Loud
Ep. 1445: We have lasers!The U.S. Navy demonstrates how it can set a boat on fire remotely using a laser. Which is super awesome as a video, and slightly terrifying as a demonstration of future military capabilities. Also, Steve Jobs finally agrees to an authorized biography,...
Today is Monday April 11 2011. This is buzz out loud my name -- Steven Beecham. I have Eric Franklin. And I am Hollywood welcome to our podcast of indeterminate -- it is episode 14145. -- wow. Have you heard Friday show you know that Brian Tong is once again on a tropical vacation which are once again totally buying land. -- I noted that as he still works -- somehow. In -- -- vacation every other week we bill littler. -- connections that you don't get tired at the card in the anyway but I'm excited because we get the tablet. The all star rotation this week starting with with -- -- favorite and the brightest star. That's inherent cooked up and -- is completely wax rhapsodic about yourself. That's my favorite governor. -- -- -- -- Now I'll say that for later and again and other -- -- often include. Opening it on the list yeah I got here was -- now. Not always thank you thank you. In the news today which we are only barely getting too because on the end of the total money today we were actually -- -- listening to banana ram and -- and that's how off the -- react in the soles of prisoners of -- I couldn't take my eyes off of -- the neighborhood -- -- With a bland and yet county now that outfits ruling it out this app greatly in the girls -- really -- -- Which is what I really appreciate. This -- -- I'm not game then you are there isn't a and its not a major beds is that these girls -- extremely plain looking. Yet they -- and yet -- likely be okay. India's. -- that the anniversary is actually tomorrow but we're -- celebrating today or at least talking about it. Today tomorrow April 12 is the fiftieth anniversary of -- -- -- He relic. Burst flight into space he was the first man to ever go into 8850. Years ago tomorrow. Everybody's right answer is about it and we know that a lot of -- with that the name after I wanna. He was only 27 while -- was a single earth orbit it lasted -- 108 minutes. And it is considered one of the Soviet union's most enduring Cold War victories. But it's interesting because. Apparently. One of the things that they have done in the past few days and weeks is release documents. Unclassified documents that have tried to. Disprove conspiracy theories about how -- aren't -- Because they mean there -- about conspiracy theory conspiracy theories -- and he didn't die in a plane crash. But that he was in fact murdered on the orders of Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev -- -- -- does loyalty to the party. He was pretty young when he -- and answer exactly what engineers later -- of years later can that was in -- -- test flight rate. Documents show -- Soviet probe concluding that he had most likely lost control of his jet actors were swerving sharply to avoid a weather forecasting balloon. I BellSouth kind of fishy to me -- It -- weather balloons involved diet that usually -- and almost certainly a Soviet ordered murder him. But let's get back to the good the victory yes when you think about how -- let people literally not at the time that that met a man might go insane just. Getting everything in space yet again. And -- blank space the space madness yeah -- and need to -- -- -- -- Well you know a little slow -- you know there are those Chuck Yeager is out there those kind of pioneering. Guys who just don't give -- And new -- -- my -- you know that held Jordan's of the real world -- -- you know that reference means and what you will and -- blogs are a minute. This agreement. Outlook and those are playing it. Up where I'll be viewed shortly geek pop band out there I'm gonna make it happen their treatment and -- Start your letter writing campaign now is -- that would -- and we're in a new. But I don't. Like -- and now they're. Tech news Apple CEO Steve Jobs is finally agreed to participate. In a book about his life -- first authorized biography will be coming in 2012. So that it's coming next year -- -- Many jobs aggregate have been written but none with his authorization in fact he he does not like it when people -- unauthorized biographies about him and they actually banished Apple banished works by John Wiley & -- department stores completely. Because wiley had signed up and unauthorized biography partly probably because it was called icon. Kinds Steve Jobs the greatest second act act in the history of didn't think -- meant -- -- but. -- He will collaborate with -- -- Walter Isaacson on a book called -- -- the book of jobs. It's a typically understated and humbled type of titles there are definitely. That will be published actually -- eminent -- it to them better parent company -- That mad -- us. -- actually say I think that has been working on the biographies since 2009. That it's been in the works for a -- -- share they talk about though why he. Was they got you know it's it's sort of like who is. This guy that he be the one of Steve Jobs and -- with his life story and that in he is this guy is like a very. Well known biographer he is. Let's see he was managing editor of the New York Times there are some really good -- -- -- -- -- He's written best sellers -- Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein -- the president and CEO of the Aspen and institute -- nonpartisan educational policy studies institute. And they say it is likely to be a landmark book about when of the world's greatest innovators. As -- -- who follows tech as much as you do know how interested are you in this reading this. Is this something that you actually EU the part of personal simply isn't something that interest you by his life story is that most of that kind of public. Already well. That's the question is here it's no -- brightly I'd be surprised if there's anything super revolutionary -- revolutionary. -- in there I mean I'm sure -- will read -- injured in mail app and certainly curious to know within their but you always do wonder. Sometimes the author -- biographies are the least -- In showed exactly allow you nick and kind of assume that they'll say oh yeah I mean can you imagine that that collaboration is basically a lot of Steve on -- new milk. -- and and no news that doesn't make you look. Want -- -- now. -- via. I mean we'll see it if they you know he's given Isaacson unprecedented access including access to his family. Which is very surprising colleagues -- Apple and a tour of his childhood home. But it still is unclear what will actually published via. The -- -- -- talk smack about Bill Gates. -- letter that you Paul Allen arrow in Africa under. -- -- It and Apple related news analysts are suggesting or at least reporting Avian securities -- in in an analyst note this morning that the new iPhone five should go into production in September. Which if true. Suggest that the new iPhone I will not be on the market until the end of this year or even early next year it's crazy that's really. Along the way they've been on the. Yearly cycle for the last three years -- whatever problems -- What he thinks clause in its -- -- -- label what's command delete the Apple buys it. They're putting in -- something really news -- really cool. -- is really has me. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The good news is that if -- -- -- to bike and I -- people actually who have been asking about it likely that I buy an iPhone parcel anyway yeah and other ask me that. As that to people like I haven't second generation -- whatever now. You can -- violent right now. But it part of it could be that analysts note the research -- speculates that there are also working on that lower price and horseback and not model model that's been rumored for on time that may mean they were. Work in on the whole development chain -- and. Could be that may be that that lower. -- -- one is the one as the been -- but there is another iPhone five that -- full price you know full specs. That's coming in July you know what would these rumors -- that they never really -- -- rights fiato. I have to admit that drumbeat about. Fall at least fall for the act and -- in pretty steady as -- -- the and edit this is true in to have an outcome until the end of year even after. Pretty surprising but at the same time. I mean they had huge constraint supply constraints just with the act on 4 am relieved to name any multiple -- -- orders that they have for the existing ponds have there working on. You know if if the display is contained in -- in Japan situation has exacerbated any other area newscast and that's I mean maybe it was supposed it it's very possible it -- it was but to go into production. Now or this summer via and that that Japan supply chain disruptions in longer. So but the good news for -- if you wanna buy an iPhone four. And that -- grateful. The beauty and -- if you instances this. Via the thing to believe -- -- If Beckett struck a deal with -- idea that the big Chinese search engine to open and super adjusting. To open it jointly owned social network in China. That would not be -- Right in between the recalls -- the -- would be a social network but it just be like kind of late. Government -- No government controlled -- -- Oh well. Without -- Yet so why didn't do it didn't like what -- just say oh launch biology is build your -- so I guess they are. It's Kelly the government of -- -- contracting FaceBook build them the social network or their country and -- -- thing. Because we definitely want to do business in China. If look at blocked in China right so we'll just build -- a whole other. I'm branded yeah totally censored government control -- -- -- can't organize and rise up against you. -- and by the -- event is but still gets to do business with the Chinese Government which lets not forget is. Yeah but they are the news that the Arab and power -- -- firefly can you know with Scott -- the I have an amateur credit. That we -- Chinese and then limited space -- -- well the whole mold yet DS that's. What part of that is because like -- -- US and Chinese governments kind of like them. Combined or merged at some point yet universe that's why everyone speaks fluent -- that's yeah yeah -- actually happening -- -- There. But the cool sounding. It is chemical. It is unclear when it's like headlines because during ventures need to be approved by the Chinese Government and I can take awhile but there amid reports for awhile. That this might happen I mean -- it's very. It's not -- business and -- you know it's Jeff flake. Is that -- but the idea though. These little hint at it is 100. I don't know if he's going to figure it'll be in my job after it and you stand about how we're not gonna be censored in China and watching their market share plummet as -- -- -- -- ambient light. A bigger than home and -- might get a super secret email system right it's not branded Google is merely -- -- -- Google he said ignoring it putting cool is not Google's something else yeah we definitely. I mean it. Now I gotta say the government though is that China you know -- it's a government body is some governing body -- it's. It's the Chinese Government yes I now look. I -- I don't live in China on the -- like her all I've only heard stories so I can't speak to. What that's like the live in -- under that regime -- It is -- -- working with government mean that. Like the worst possible scenario I'm just saying it's I don't know how old. I'll bet -- -- -- -- Huntley we internally government. Saying that vote what. -- -- If they don't do this than people have no FaceBook knows no social networking. I mean should people will find a way to do statement. You know with -- don't do this then there's nothing. For iPad and has been the argument that the argument that Google recently when they went into Tenet that look we're gonna try to bring as much light. As we can and because like you point out without -- you know without some option there will be no option but even ultimately Google decided. That the censorship was not worth that that they were not actually helping because the search result they were -- -- that's entered in the idea and I can think of nothing. Frankly more terrifying -- being -- social network in China. Like what information. You have circle on it to play in your little profile you like high. But then when it might end and Baidu is not but it is not the government actually Baidu is not a government run search -- okay in as much as anything not govern on rent and -- there's obviously a lot of influence but -- do is. Dot -- not as specific government -- that few companies -- giant companies getting together. And saying we're gonna build the others is very interest elated at -- not doubling down on FaceBook and time and there's things and I. And I really have much. You've got an email to your -- on the. It's not a dumb -- -- -- -- and it's not Facebook's shareholder at your enemies and like. You go evil. I do wonder what I do wonder what the conversations are gonna be like companies but no ability going to be a lot like -- at Twilight Zone episode -- will mean we think that will keep notes our. In the whole family or around him Mikey could destroy the world he wanted to and -- -- it's great it's great that you did that means you -- like every time every conversation below isn't great that we have this. Really -- -- good -- it is a great that we have hinted that the government picture of us and is it gives us gives us the social network through FaceBook. -- -- -- -- I'm really curious what that pharmacies is going to be yet so -- -- -- advocate -- -- that particular point. Let's take a quick break when we come back a very surprising settlement -- YouTube's new live streaming service and all of -- money that you are the way on your smart. Welcome back and everyone. It is Monday its -- mine damn hero Eric Franklin and being comparable to beat him -- and a and we have super surprising -- three actually regarding the George -- and Sony PlayStation 3 jail breaking case. Quietly went and settled. After leaving -- linked to the brink of nuclear war you know what the fleeing the country in the not -- the country and I'm just on spring break in the scorched earth Sony. Policy and we're gonna get all IP address and everybody I ever went there are gonna break and you aren't accurate now part of -- Robert and they were like. Yeah when I mean all those things and when we reached agreement -- -- in there and -- it's a little. Every time you connect your -- Should mean the more important things -- darva. Also -- -- boys that like a midwestern housewife dissolve under an outstanding job. Anybody ever. Haul truck -- -- -- -- And it -- that. Anyway. We had games and me and it settlement. Eight nothing basically happens is this agreement in principle of those hot. Agreed to a ban on publishing in the jail breaking codes that will never put that out there again. Security haven't you heard it and he but he doesn't have to admit any run -- He did say though which is always said it was never my intention to -- -- any users trouble or make piracy even easier. And then Sony just. On which -- I I don't it's surprising that he. Apparently suffered such a complete collapse in his rebellion. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It suggests that generally he says that the total capitulation by Sony and that isn't some it -- like. A little bit of that -- here with Tony -- going flat out write. Eight doodle where will not do enough smoke -- a -- angles Everglades hasn't dialed her line that everything's. And then there -- like. And yeah it might go way -- the the -- definitely feeling -- blink. Is probably the case something because the gotta admit that the drumbeat of negative press. Was getting pretty unavoidable for -- people like excuse me -- how are you gonna pull me into your little bite here with with George. How is my IP address relevant right now. And they do in fact one -- -- -- click that and and snagged on these and -- -- that you stock -- -- disagreement. -- -- it. Oracle and -- Arab and think it's totally anonymous that I am not willing to give anonymous the credit for this. Because I don't want to further empower our -- as your inane and -- back and nothing. And that's what you say that Sony. And the -- That -- -- -- -- that Sony and the neighboring planets in Georgia the volume shall not. An outfit -- Kindle 2. But -- at the end that Turkey got Matt from regret now. Opinions on the cancer here now and Adobe has released its new creative like five point five suite that one of the interesting things they -- announce a free update to Photoshop CS five includes a new SDK. And scripting engine that lets developers create tablet apps. That interact with Photoshop. Okay so blank. Not only Photoshop on the iPad but potentially all of these little. Types of apps so they they actually created three of them has example Adobe -- lava which is like how they're mixing in color scheme creator. Adobe easel which lets you do kind of -- Finger painting with no menus and tool bars on every free pixel of the iPad touch. Yup I've fingers on brand icon in. That's -- Adobe now volatility control Photoshop tools -- -- tablet. And those -- the three that they created so far. But I -- they're basically things like this could be in the digital creation. Easel like no other. -- -- -- because you use your hands and that's what. -- -- -- the -- hands when you're doing painting type stuff right into what really I'm and I sounds fun but as far as creating like real serious work. You -- about. Wolf serious sort of objective monotone. And carried out. I that people are saying like it -- -- the iPad like a Wacom tablet you know. And I think in those eighteen in our design department the tablet music and they're just much more precise Internet okay yeah sure these are like starter apps that are really fun and but Adobe says China shot the potential of all of these -- -- can -- Further -- this. Five years now we can have like really. Serious -- -- apps. In producers work on this campus. And creative input I mean it's true that that Arabs pointing out the iPad does not pressure sensitivity like a -- -- in tablet and your finger is nowhere in years. As with eyes -- -- to be but that you're just -- an iPad. I -- an earth stylus tablet coming out there there are there could be certainly tablets that have precedence to -- and -- This is just an amino also -- like he -- start so this technology mean tablet technology still kind of news in this in its infancy that's so. -- I think -- I -- people must implement the finger -- And when I think had agreement. As with most people that it -- -- -- -- actually Owens had to pay. His -- you can't just rolled out a YouTube live which is their web streaming service -- live web video streaming service they will be broadcasting point 47 -- at least they have that capability now so I don't know goodbye you stream. You know. -- live broadcast have to be scheduled they're launching with them some streaming partners. They -- that broadcast ought to be scheduled they -- to be listed for the times and where the broadcast of taking place we have that problem here. And then there'll also be -- comments section like the -- live mean we've -- but it will be all kinds of different and that's just one channel. Right yet it's just one channel you just go there and whatever is on -- so has everything that used in hands. Then what's this. Is -- matters is that you can bigger -- And they're kind of saying -- -- -- threaten them mainly it'll threaten them mainly because of its huge user base that begins at this as live on YouTube. Ray is that the Lima news stream right but if we're gonna go -- YouTube -- I mean I could definitely imagine like. Right now pupils sometimes thing on and do my concert -- -- -- -- right. But -- Charlie Sheen could have been on YouTube instead. You definitely that opportunities for -- -- is at home home radio shows. But coming. I totally free. Reign atop a black and -- sympathetic. Verizon also announced new service today that will let media companies deliver video streams less expensively -- -- to Smartphones tablets and in her neck and it TV. Basically Verizon. Is becoming like a content delivery network like Akamai or limelight. As far as I understand it so they'll let companies video providers. More cheaply deliver videos or live streams. Kind of by you know breaking up -- the -- packets and delivering them more efficiently. And then for -- -- you know you'll be able to access those video streams. And then let's see they will serve them B of storage nodes located near metropolitan areas meaning users stream and years geographical server. Thus allowing for faster streaming and better quality video -- -- optimize model. Which I was referred to as like the video Ponte expressed. Click instead of everything having to come from that -- live right. Instead of everything having come from our servers and Texas which were delivered crappy -- to Canada are North Dakota right it could actually be streamed from a little storage no and in Wisconsin. -- Now they're getting into that market but I find that very interesting because also seemed to suggest that for -- symbolic. -- He figured it was relevant to the -- And it's the way I understand this is this -- this -- For Verizon customers emulate particular network -- like okay. I think -- and and and that is smart because they are they understand that streaming video -- that mean. You know the market of the future and now they're getting into it -- bull. It's a pretty smart -- the pretty smart move but I have to say that I'll be watching. For Verizon's. Lower data -- in the future. And -- like our network -- -- -- XR network is uber content. And then an idea as attack and that Arab don't really get their -- -- my event like that and they gonna block net. And right on the one hand it could free up and with because it says were streaming more efficiently. And we're taking control of the street right so we are handling the delivery mechanism we're gonna make sure it's efficient possible we're gonna make senator band -- -- totally. Allocated properly -- But it's a little unnerving when really truss and do -- -- -- -- -- company did do that I don't trust in the -- actually do something. To do something that well yeah I doubt I feel like here. People they're human beings -- today this company as someone's gun going to mess up. -- not going to do their job very well well and also don't forget that they are completely exempt. Thanks to the FCC's new net neutrality regulations -- even those we went our party and -- attack but let's not forget that they're totally out from. The restrictions that would prevent them from creating tiered delivery network. Think it does charge more for her and other content providers again. -- Anyway it's a smart investment for them but. Both of the how else incidents -- them. -- smart business and pro consumer are -- increasingly rarely the same thing. It's figures that by an intimate. A new study by bill monitors -- that Smartphone users though the number I think can afford to -- -- -- them lists because apparently -- and users. Are wildly overpaid for their services they're wasting hundreds of dollars a year on totally unnecessary -- not surprising at all. It really isn't it -- the study found that people have a habit of signing up for contract with far more voice minutes than they need them that they use rather and that's the main reason that the price because that's the main reason is preparing that data. Its voice right now but it's not just that -- that they're also paying. -- and actually where you end up paying more is when you go over your monthly data limit. Yeah that's where they -- given me. Hats that increase would limit the -- and so give it up at the top when her using on that and now lives now Apple. The study found that the average Smartphone -- eat up a 133 megs of data per month. Which of course will only increase as wireless companies an attempt to implement more than. -- -- -- -- Luckily I am an iPhone one person from the beginning -- -- the contract with unlimited -- well I know I don't live in them. It's cute and I say just stick with the one yes we will have -- three -- it. -- -- Yet it it is interesting that it's been the voice minutes and data caps that are. Yeah. But a -- -- you don't get through the that the choices you have the options you have four for plans. Usually pick the lowest plan myself when it sometimes -- not. I guess. There's no other plan that get will be lower so I'm gonna waste of money no matter what details I was like that and I'm -- the cheapest plan. You get your -- overpaying. -- of -- what what what what what can I do about that. I definitely think that they bundle in it you know if it becomes the bundling problem on the one hand they bundle and way more voice minute right never exactly so there are -- and certain packages. I can't make up package acted as -- built don't baggage -- so that they'll be one thing but knowing -- that offer that so. And I'm taking what they're getting. And some emphasis. And yup -- taken it all right I'll get. I'm telling me everytime I bet it's sprint commercials with unlimited asthma and limited Batman and all of it personally and -- program like. Miller it's pretty and it really does -- -- increasing speed. There the the video available to. Consume and the media available to stream on your device is only increasing -- and then the caps are getting lower and the prices are increasing and it's just this like. Vicious kind of convergence where like word and make it that they're only yes money goes like that now the world's gone one way people another -- The word that people I've gone one way and the company they're -- that went into. Good times good times I that's that's it for today's consumer advocate thing -- let's move -- -- -- Streets below her as too little sun behind -- -- -- different time coming into it never really gotten. -- -- -- -- Or -- -- a court has a US appeals court has ruled that the legal lost winds. Yes they -- -- why they -- the -- but they also have to take it. Day they can not back out of their settlement with FaceBook over claims that. The -- Mark Zuckerberg stole their ideas that they had this settlements -- agreed to the settlement -- and valued at 65 million dollars. But the legal but we're saying no we -- we shouldn't have that take a settlement because there's internal valuation based but did not disclose we should get more FaceBook and we see them money. The -- of the -- hit tons of money well the movie told me. But they got tons of money all of the movie is fiction movies said we've featured. Anyway yet and I don't know they want they did a lot harmony they were trying to appeal the settlement but -- the appeals court -- -- -- now you're gonna have to take it out. The Auburn Maine school department and thank you to everyone who emailed us that that -- people sentiment. Every kindergarten student in this district and -- Maine will be receiving an iPad to the spot. The school committee about it Wednesday night and 200000 dollars for 285. Ipads for -- the students and the teachers. As part of a pilot programs of the students an iPad as early as may wow. Incredible -- Apple isn't doing as well. -- on Apple's. No I mean and it probably gets a little discount and other really good education only and let -- -- it's dominated made its mark okay now. They just they say they hope that they technology will boost literacy rates from 62% and 90% in two years. And they think that. Instance. I don't know you know -- -- -- do anything you -- your letters you can read -- hear your name all day until itself or immediately -- -- video games and -- all right. That's what they're gonna doing nano -- -- reading these kids. Molly until payday then they actually video -- people using video institutes like second graders algebra. It's amazing now we can do it in astronomy and it's an educational game giving it looks like immediately exactly. Guard says they're paying for 175 dollars for each -- -- they are getting an education. Now. And also I think personally. Up. Nothing is great I think it's awesome. The little jealous but. Which are the clear yet under your hood -- many reasons. Windows 7 has finally passed by Juliet -- this -- Windows 7 has now surpassed windows XP in the United States usage share. Yes in the first ten days of April windows seven's average daily share was 32%. Besting XP's average of thirty point 7% for the first time -- years maybe that's not it was a slow adoption but it certainly happen. -- on that -- Any time now reeling from its beat the CNET any tell CNET glad -- it tells you what you need. -- -- good but become a sharp. Has halted production of LCD panels for televisions in Japan because of that last -- earthquake and tsunami and is disrupted the supply of industrial gases and so because of that. They can't secure enough gas to maintain production. A two factories that make small and medium sized panels for devices like cellphones. And laptop PC. Which is bad news for anybody who wants to buy a sharp sharp flat screen television after about a month. But also sharp I think with making the new making like sidekick and he psychic. Anyway it's just and you know yet another sign of those disruptions that are currently ongoing. And finally Google has purchased Canadian mobile application developer pushed life. Presumably because they can't live in a world where companies named -- life. Which -- -- they're -- -- in. The terror bombings and abandonment of the pretty bad name. But what they do is they this company does think thinking I think it automatically synchronize its content on a phone without stored on a computer. In iTunes or Windows Media Player which -- people suggested maybe they're trying to -- the talent. Right to work on their -- -- music -- service of course it's totally. Okay now -- the cricket now for the goods -- that's. The US navy. Hey -- I'm maybe hey. The Pentagon with an -- over this because they've carried out their first average I shouldn't be fed up -- could potentially horrible and can't opt out. -- -- -- other earth at the ray -- and -- warship -- used to -- to set a boat on fire yes. Check out the animals were there. So we have the video playing it you're not watching the video extremely clear that basically like to that the boat and you're looking at it in everything and then. It on fire at them a really big if they could save. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Something hitting it like. Yet -- and there's like a -- a concentration of something light at one point net. -- -- -- that metal engines fire to start them and a -- insane. But I don't. The way they chose to actually test that though I like that as -- as an untenable it just looks -- a weird when their boat. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It -- and we're one step closer to the death rate of these in terms of the Somali pirates and birth surprised. -- You can see a bunch of sharks swimming up then -- lasers and heads. Peter -- programs like the future. Peter -- program up at their MLB warship Reagan project said. This is the first time -- high energy laser at -- power level has been put on a navy ship -- from that ship -- used to defeated target range in America and environment. I love your military analysts. A very -- and a bit either relatively unimpressive fifteen kilowatt laser. But they think that they would be able to daisy chain them together to provide beams of more than a hundred kilowatt hour and and that threaten humanity from. -- -- -- Or -- satellite and I argued. Cool and I remember -- analytic trying to kill Hitler and he's like everything easily sit -- the light. Builds them illegally what's cool it also needs and is in the small -- these are just boarded up. So since it -- -- -- That doesn't mean. It like it's stepped in picked up the futures of click it and how it kilowatt per megawatt greatly there's might sweep -- -- under. Read the 100000 paired up into -- the -- -- hypersonic solid flight to penetrate such as shield it like -- did not just yeah for lasers but actually to create. Suitably you. That's rooms ridiculous I'll grab read I know -- -- digital slot laser will kill me I'm certain of that it could upload umpire. I'm just saying when they get to the hundred kilowatt hour -- rig and turn its. That -- so they can -- you from space. -- -- -- kept up to all our future pop culture that we that we did a story recently where they're gonna shoot satellites. Old satellite -- lasers so yes. That's pilot -- lenders to just based and they sense in really bad. -- -- gonna push it with the lasers. And what you have definitely someone else's galaxy. Don't get -- in -- more -- -- I don't you killed well thank you -- and hopefully don't have enough -- that the kilowatt laser again. It architect reminded laughing at their heels in for opting to -- laser shield would protect me a minute. And -- I would not know exactly really they myself isn't there. And low RA -- happy ending anyone. That is not enough. -- -- Good news for the Boy -- they're finally catch up to the future. As part of the new stem curriculum science technology engineering and math. The Boy Scouts are getting a new merit badge in robotic now it looks like merit badge in. Raccoon with -- you have. Aesthetic of that that the only -- -- -- -- okay. And one of thirteen stem related merit badges but not to -- increasingly. Home wide reaching impact. The terror of a totally up the real meaning me -- -- web. The other -- I can get it up. -- -- -- -- -- -- the -- -- the bad apps must among other robot related requirements design build program and -- a robot demonstrate the -- and share their engineering notes tender robotics competition. Or do research on robotic contests and explain how -- ethernet. Bloom yes well in -- opened fire to -- the singularity is coming so it's the that there. Preparing the Boy Scouts aren't in any program. Asks -- -- -- books and met up. -- really disturbing conversation with my hairdresser about the coming link ecological apocalypse and I think that it might actually be more important to teach them to make a pirated to speak. I'm actually did -- this week and so you didn't -- It's Tuesday well then. Meyer's books that were made -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Sony Computer Entertainment America -- -- happy ending stories CEO Jack Trenton is making headlines because apparently just decided to go off. Go all crazy and lay -- some Mac on a Nintendo. He was trying to explain. And ultimately the little -- rhetoric but you've left that way around. The object pregnant. I think you're officially tomorrow you call something -- Nintendo. That I. And that's not implement it Nintendo. I don't know make it just really want to one of the Nintendo's.

That would be seen playing -- He -- on a Bart wore a plain. -- have one now because you also what. On earth will be the difference was that self respecting twice -- the port -- between periodically -- the DS. And lake appears here in a GP in Europe and active self respecting planet pending its -- -- fanatic should be -- that -- -- games I think you have an iPad. Or at cool Android phone or whatever it might be right I'm sorry that the hand held gaming system is dead right right tried to shoot the other guy -- making a dinosaur demise of not making it look -- exactly. Exactly and there are a thing. -- -- -- between -- that with the vanity thing yet. That. Good luck finding say about that -- you know it -- written bad karma. -- -- brilliance then. Not a good idea you know what I'm gonna my Mike -- and said. The Nintendo. At least that -- if he at -- Google did not hurting half the iPad has exactly and think if he wasn't. -- pretty much ends up on them. But that -- so possibly into your. -- -- -- -- and crew. Well I forgot about. All that the guy quit the -- and -- Cambodia. It before then. -- yeah. Particular the amazing we've -- if we get I got a lot of him. And creepy creepy voice -- Milton -- -- medically needy got a lot of lightly lot of area. Comedy is hard lightning only checked Valencia gotta come up with a new bit that we do appreciate -- did they attempt at an imitation of -- might put together like the best -- alone oh my god Albin told Larry that mashups yes we need it we need a -- -- -- -- -- -- -- As some animated ambling to digitally blurred -- I -- -- our -- today is is. Basically. Retailing us with detailed how he in fact may -- that the kids at -- confident that none of which are the Nintendo. Kate our first -- and he April Melbourne Australia were the -- -- -- in gadget blog I haven't we can. -- -- -- -- Talk like three Q Michael Mike annual boy needed -- -- like to.

Because it will GP. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- At least two of them are only in the house because my tablet iPad I never use only used it idea that sometimes weren't apparent. Mr. and then the iPod Touch I literally only -- so that I can be found in right. Usually do that in the same room. -- then how can also be. Yet he goes and and around. Evidently don't plan isn't doing our -- Indicated. Everybody comes up with a way to maybe they didn't know it and then that better than again -- bar the answer or you spend time. I just leveling your deride -- You can -- like the idea of diamond ever out of Australia with the kids -- -- -- another -- with an -- well. I think I am that -- listen to my show a much in mammoth and in the program right now there's usually a bit here's your devices. They'll those kids don't have a British on the -- -- and -- it is buried in a no we haven't been. For both cool -- I -- to the email Mike from being down -- and in Boston. And says this -- this one is aimed at -- -- idea. It says these apps read applications. Can -- it could finally -- at the sound volume in -- applications are not -- -- that are on a recent. These apps are not -- there is this is in regards to pandora. And other apps giving your personal data away wholesale -- -- -- he says these apps are not free. There's a cost to develop distribute and support every -- last application on the market. The biggest problem is that the consumers demanding something they've gotten accustomed -- on one platform to transfer over to another where it just doesn't work. Display ads only work when they -- on screen actual content and the phone is too small form factor to make that work. There for another way to make money is needed to deliver these apps to you at no cost. I agree they should be upfront about what -- what the application will track and share about you but there's no way out of this until we find a better source of revenue on the mobile device. At the end of the day you're complaining about something you get for -- they'll look a gift horse in them. -- -- -- point and we did say that these app developers don't feel like they have another way to make money. Ray will have her here but yeah I and the ability guitars an -- that -- put the dollar amount on yeah I mean liberate. It's just not like I am happy to pay for it -- -- If they will sell it to me and and it's true I know that pandora has a paid version -- -- it doesn't give them a way that. That information but the fact is like no app yet has the right that they know app developer nobody at the right they like I'm pretty. You can't have that area -- -- all bets are off. Or wherever you know we -- do want because you're not paying for a -- you repeat that it -- it. You're most afraid of the Wayne -- -- -- the -- -- -- them onto the face with disputes. I agree -- -- does need to be revenue model but the revenue model I mean honestly. Not just as a moral argument it can't be -- people's private information. Without letting them know because you're gonna get the data existed and it can be made illegal -- and not acceptable when in the short term Yuma you know losing any money. I in the long term maybe you -- delusional fortune closer. Here information. Stolen platforms and now probably time. -- then we can help -- -- banners -- -- -- Canada says on recent episodes of the only mention that Netflix is now placed -- for mad men online to American customers and author of a letter that mentioned the princess bride is not a Netflix. Interesting -- both are easily accessible already on Netflix Canada. It seems that we have a lot of content available that isn't offered in the US they -- to -- exact opposite of what we're used -- when it comes to online content availability where every -- we click. -- -- with the response the content you've requested is not available in your geographic region. It is a shame though that with -- -- -- ridiculous data caps an average is nobody can actually afford to pay enough for the bandwidth to actually want on the screen content. Either way he says because I'm a little down in Canada and -- I also want to comment or mark -- data while back which that the director James -- interest in science lesson it learned years ago before they stop teaching science in American.
