Culture
Today is Tuesday July 12 2011. My name -- Steven -- of. I'm Bryan song and I am I glad to welcome so read up about the wake up. About love that podcast and it certainly it is episode 18100 and -- and I -- -- -- to notice right off the bat. Totally mimic how about teacher I order from -- -- dot com thank you and the people -- -- -- -- like. It out at the in 1988. Then when the tunnel is established the score is still use it while. And you got to go to the reference don't get it from the Calvin and hobbes comic but it because I always talk about how Apple is playing Calvin ball that developers can change the of course they do everything I. I wish I had an Alvin an Apple developer story to talk about alignment my teacher today about a -- Surprisingly enough we don't impact impediment to -- the scoop -- think -- -- a girl teacher I really appreciate -- type of public. The women shapes T shirts instead of the cheap new feature -- that things get American Apparel and that -- a little -- With that with a shorter Levys. In fact that ninety. -- -- -- I promise you got the island where I got a -- indeed an argument. For those have you not watching the podcast it's an elegant sure. -- it's a navy blue. With touches of Orange and white blue express is a balloon and it's it's it's like a shield it in at mapped out and look like it's like -- -- -- -- school delicate crest. -- -- Thank you for that it thanks for the tip. You know -- think you. Google right now sane think -- all those close to ten million users they put on their blog that they'll be surpassed -- The ten million mark some time. Today ten million users -- -- I I have to say it like we had a little controversy over that then and in the -- ever get -- -- now. No way -- -- -- I don't know -- it just doesn't -- it -- but -- hard to believe -- as I said. -- think about FaceBook has over 700 million right now I think of all -- users and activity of their ten million Apple I believe that. I could see it in Google gets like a billion people. Searching it. Ever known could -- didn't but they know they've opened and a lot. I was able -- -- people like flood -- yesterday -- by yesterday we like when we says you know if you email us we'll give recently -- Google in metric -- Google -- in it we got. Rule. We had some early users it was like a lot -- -- CNN and the buzz in box. -- -- that shows that people are listening personal that was really the test if we got one email that wouldn't really sad yet. The answer but is it -- this well according to Paul -- And -- not about Paul Allen but the guy has been using sort of US Census Bureau model or information and other surname based analysis. He says that among other things. There's a -- last big growth in users just from yesterday at -- to tonight when he posted this last night. Is -- 30% -- he thinks 2.2 million people. Have joined Google plus in the past 32 to 34 hours. -- and that Google plus could. Easily -- ten million users today and then reach twenty million users by the coming weekend if they keep -- invite button available. Oh well it's pretty freaky because you just -- by people those by people in and buy at least five people are known that a. It's the pyramid scheme it totally over the positive opinions game I mean it is -- it's true that if they keep in Manitoba and. I mean I have noticed like every single day basically just like thirty more people that you and you know I do want more -- -- -- -- Crimea. I often it is the issue but it's okay. -- -- -- 15100 more people I did meet today anti -- like more bad oh look here's five marking the I -- -- more people to tell Google plus because right now my -- is kind of being overloaded by a few specific people. You might know you are but please just cut it down a little did I beg of you when there's more Google wants it that way I -- I -- -- -- edit Arabs that he needs a lot. A lot normal as graft understands group now because because the moon lake Zuckerberg -- his beastie buddies say human blurred negative understanding it it's. -- -- -- Please yelled look out I mean really this that is pretty remarkable and and if people stick with it and that's the question right. -- also people -- -- in -- Google responding back to their blogs and big gondola truck -- has led the charge the senior vice president and unit Google. And that they will be. Rolling out some new changes coming out this week they've heard a lot of criticism but a lot of positives and negatives in the really trying to be responsive to what the audiences. I think overall the responses more than positive. -- I think it's -- I'm surprised actually that he likely that would that he is coming out basically being humble and -- lots of criticism for Google plus because you know. The more you use it the more electric and need this and then you know then the -- not that intuitive or they should be private messaging or the fact that you can't. -- my biggest complaint actually is that you can't post a message on someone's wall yet again just put a note on from a -- you have -- price. Tag them and opposed and now you have to directly hurt them in a post -- that's probably the biggest thing right now that's or so used to at least from the Facebook's re. But I mean again like this is what they have managed to accomplish right out of the gate with a very -- limited beta. And they're having -- group already if it continues to get better and people -- to it because I'm still. Primarily using FaceBook because I know that's where my peeps are viable way upon my peeps are showing up on Google plus I think that -- -- -- have -- trouble. There's also some -- and how to that we're coming out with on CNET about how to import. Your pictures from FaceBook. And throw them in directly to Google plus and that's huge and that is huge I'll be really big -- right now -- only -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I can just do little. Get him over there. If -- friends over to your photos over its. I get those photos -- that's -- that's huge and apparently the Yahoo! mail workarounds still working for -- and that's that's been written in India though monitored the content. Of at least even if FaceBook has not totally -- is now about how they are all of a sudden under at least a pressure more than may have been a long time ever. There's a new startup called can tango who is paying attention to this idea that people might want circles they might want friend categorization. -- To be honest I think the circle thing is gonna be left in less important to Google plus as -- -- -- into good PR cent now. But people -- tried categorizing friends for on time in early works like. The golden rule still applies here which is that if you don't want in on the Internet don't -- brightly just trying to put it in your one randomly people who like. Curse words and in -- -- -- Like your -- your dirty can expect their -- I can you or your -- one yet it's not good but not good to be on the Internet don't put on the -- however. There that's a start up that's working with FaceBook called to tango that actually hoping to manage. And segment your FaceBook contacts. Yes so what contained it does is it scans. Your network this is. Think it is like out on -- extra layer on top of FaceBook and based on how people are connected to maybe do here. What high schools you went to where you lived how much you interact. It treats. And according to their algorithm it's pretty accurate this is from was against it this little article that's posted -- -- from. It's a -- all things digital article via the out so -- you know high school friends. I don't wanna filter through all that myself than it is kind of nice if there is some sort of algorithm vs some sort of plugin that -- do this for you. It does run off of its own. -- right now. On on the iPhone so -- kind of makes it an actress that you can't this is an integrated into FaceBook and really if FaceBook wanted to. Acquire them down the road and plug -- -- back could be useful rank right you have to post from this app but it. It's so -- that does it all for you. Yet an -- just an interesting sort of ways it's an interesting endorsement of that content thank you for the word universe needed -- -- -- -- -- In. Big -- -- -- HP. And possibly an admission that things in really goes. That it ends HP has decided to shake out. It's webos division in a pretty big -- Stephen DeWitt is now the senior vice president of webos. And he replaces. John Rubinstein who let me deal webos -- from palm. He will assume any product in a recent role in -- p.'s personal systems -- basically goes over to. Personal systems and PC that encompasses webos but -- -- is in charge of everything now from webos to engineering to marketing. An HP has that changed the name from palm to webos global business unit. Yeah it's itching to see what's -- projects does his. His history has been doing hardware and not necessarily software he came from Apple's -- VP of hardware engineering. And so when he took the lead of webos everyone thought okay he's gonna take some these things from Apple -- ecosystem. -- software and build it into it but webos when it launched with its in its current form it dismissing a lot of things the app and doesn't have that polish. You would expect from a software product that is your OS for a brand -- -- -- Now actually the hardware is not all the -- harder -- -- -- mediocre -- the hardware is like iPad one level hardware you know in denying it or not but -- it's sort of like that it's not all the way there. And they you know HP although they're not giving reasons for the switch -- DeWitt was formerly in charge HP's personal systems group in the Americas. Where he did I mean as we know HP's marketer has really grown they've done a good job of positioning themselves. As a competitor to. Apple -- -- you know to creating like more high quality hardware and made easy make it easy profitability and market share grow. That seems like it if they take that and and a proven track record. Turnaround yeah it's just like. Is the touchpad going to be. -- -- Although the big thing about -- deterred on the -- is Dili. And that's -- -- -- ever wonder boy that's a bad thing okay no okay. But -- the touchpad when you if you've seen it or messed around with that we we were expected we were excited about this thing it feels like a tablet from 2000. And likely 2010. It really does it really a shame really good competitor to the iPad at -- Not -- and it's like you on -- though less is sluggish and now it's nice but it's like it's it'll its its really a bomber actually they -- I. You know like at out of the dark horse for a long time we -- I we enter -- and webos does -- -- and a potential Munich yes. Good for them for saying we're making the leadership states. Amendment that. That it does feel like an admission that liked -- -- -- -- -- other companies admit that a move toward incident -- dwell on it and try and just shake it up when you when you've lost your battery you gotta rebuilt yet don't -- like double that rim when you get back. Has that open letter from your senior executive and an appearance by our prophet like. It worked fine. We got this that are profit playbook rocks. But that that -- he talked about water on the deck there's no water on the act bishop as well. -- -- -- -- yourself you're not gonna Netflix is offering now they've put out a little shake up in their plan pricing. They're now offering a bare bones dvd plan which -- actually surprised -- that that they were to get rid of dvds it completely. But again kind of suggests they may be listening. To people they're also offering new though more expensive. Plans that include both dvd rental answering. Yes of the company's new 799 per month plan will we offered this is going to be one dvd out of time and limited basis. They're also bumping up the price of their combo plan. So -- -- a 999 for unlimited streaming and a limited dvd rentals you're gonna need to pay 1598. But they're really separating at least a dvd only specific plan from a streaming only plan. The and then that bumping the price up of the combo plan. I mean it basically combine those are just saying there is no more kind of unlimited streaming and unlimited dvd rental there's only this combined plan that is. A lot more expensive. And does not include unlimited dvds that's a major difference right signaling a one out -- time. While that and the sixteen dollars must -- at sixteen is a little more little more -- -- -- little more chunky. So even though they're offering the bare bones dvd plan what this really suggests. Is that they're trying to make a plan that includes dvds and streaming and palatable. They're saying like you can get the media that you want to -- -- -- streaming. But if you wanna combine streaming dvds you're gonna -- like a huge premium because what we really want you to do is move -- -- -- They're gonna push people one -- one direction or the other -- Although in a blog post Netflix that they do see a very large continuing demand for dvds and that they needed to make that change. To be profitable and ethnic and I may have like you would not believe it. And -- so little make. -- -- It they went they -- -- -- that they haven't I did it stop me in my tracks that look like. At that they went on to -- -- 79 as a terrific value for -- the streaming and the in the what do we do before the show. We just permanent music scanning my own. He's the plan and no old Mac -- didn't -- -- okay we're we're gonna wanna make a change you stream on the take a look at just so that may check. Where -- and we are afraid we're done with us. We're definitely got it got out and then thanked everyone turned it on Indian -- that -- -- and I get so -- Out so there. Mr. let's look -- a break. Three collect a day you know -- apparently didn't take a break. -- -- come back we're gonna talk about -- partnering up with other companies in hopes of making some more money and then anonymous because they -- it. Not -- at Needham goes after the military personnel. Hello. There are -- -- this -- that Digg consisted entirely accommodate urban -- -- And that's it -- mainly due to load the entire dot -- top level domains. What we -- is they -- them -- out -- out of season. -- -- I love that any any top -- shadows by and by -- guys rock you guys rock -- I really keep on rocking with the stories. Foursquare partnering up now you guys that use foursquare religiously. Know it's -- service but one of their biggest problems is they still need. To make some money it did they don't have the biggest revenue stream so what they're doing is they're partnering up with a series of companies living social gilt Groupe and AT&T. To bring partnerships and deals with -- ten milling users. In hopes to build this new revenue stream to work towards you know I mean -- actual business model for the service which is. Very addictive in certain situations like when I'm on vacation I'm like foursquare and all over the place really -- not not so as much when I'm home -- -- get bored with it via typical metal grab. This is a good thing for them. Yet pretty smart that they deals programs so far hasn't proven very lucrative so -- smart of them to go and partner with the deal providers so they went straight -- group -- five I would meet. Those the gilt city actually which is pretty exciting that's the subsidiary of -- group that offers daily -- that you know -- -- -- -- because they mostly do on their. Yet if they say that flows in the -- it's absolutely lovely. So that was smart of them man I gotta say though I feel I feel the force. Life force draining out of foursquare like it just doesn't seem very relevant and I don't see very many tech and market like. People places check in Newton and now. It might just be -- As laws that as -- the deals are did that's the whole reason why I was motivated to get in a -- in the first place right we're just much worse. It's the same for -- we're just motivated by the deal that matters some if they can get all those different groups -- those deals that matter to these different segments of people using the stuff than will be all right yeah interesting reverend Tarrant does go -- is -- that. -- all eyes detected out. Ticket two -- well but I don't know does go all I haven't used a -- -- all have deals linked to them. I'd. I don't remember it you know that's why stop getting -- -- the -- let me know. The dealer what -- if anything's gonna keep people -- and that's probably that. Why did it. Did I B times asks that the the the right question today why did anonymous hacked Booz Allen Hamilton and released 90000. Email addresses for active members of the military email addresses and past and passwords. -- -- We -- you wanna -- up liking you. Eight continuing the -- -- activity is anonymous broke into a server that was operated by Booz Allen Hamilton Hamilton of image which is a military contractor. They've been disclosed log in credentials including. Those 90000 military email addresses and passwords. -- they also claim that they expose maps and keys for various other treasure chests. Buried on the islands of government agencies federal contractors in -- -- white hat company's -- -- -- Yet not well know. I gotta say anonymous said in a statement on -- may have that the reason they get is that it was in fact the low hanging fruit that Booz Allen Hamilton. Was had extremely -- security and anonymous than we were shocked at you with security and one of the company's servers. The made it easier for attackers to run their own application -- -- SQL database they said that Booz Allen Hamilton. Was more like a puny wooden barge rather than -- state of the art battleship -- how about this you guys tell them for once. And tell them to beef it up instead of exposing the -- service people who serve our country's. User names and passports and -- I like it hurt him in -- if you wanna make a headline for yourself find succeed but this isn't this isn't helping anyone skates well. Use your skills against the bad -- He wanna make a single -- to sound. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Says on my dear god morality is a decision premier and I are eaten -- that saw. It the Obama administration. Has asked a federal judge to order a Colorado woman to decrypt her laptop she's accused of a mortgage scam. And the Department of Justice under the Obama administration has apparently asserted it. That it has the power to force citizens to decrypt. Information on their hard drives -- that case is making its way through the courts. And depending on what the ruling is it could turn into a precedent setting case because the dependent -- first proposed to says. That the order. Ordering her to decrypt -- information in turn over potentially infringing information would violate the Fifth Amendment. This is this is really insisting yeah I'm -- -- -- you could look at this in two ways they talk about an analogy of okay well. If -- -- from the on a piece of paper that was coated in a way that I knew. What I how would I have to decrypt that code. Is at the same as. You know password protecting mystique encrypted hard drive or. Are you looking at this -- as a key. To a -- of a physical safety like -- if you are using that analogy. In cases before have you been requested to turn over that he'd open -- -- to get access to those documents rank. I mean the fitness of the Fifth Amendment in case you're not familiar with that the US constitution broadly protects americans' right to remain silent that is why we have -- Miranda warning of the right term in silent. And that's why if you're compelled to testify in court. You have the right to say I exercise my Fifth Amendment right to remain silent on the grounds and I may incriminate myself. And so if this if the appeared. If the ruling is. That you have to turn over information even if it will encrypt -- then potentially that could. Really change the definition basically in the Batman. Now let's let's be clear -- this woman who is who -- -- looking into she's not. Like a saint by any means there's -- her present her troubled bank fraud wire fraud money launder money laundering. As partisan attempt to use false by court documents but it still is bringing -- -- This this case of Q what can the government -- person to do -- not do in regards to our pastor protective -- It'll be -- to see how it shakes out -- it is interesting how technology continues to push the boundaries and -- -- three to finalize than anything and they have to relate them to what's currently in place like physical goods a locked to a safe. Vs someone hand right right -- yeah there's no precedent to this. There really isn't and there -- suggesting -- -- -- -- deck and -- writes in his or the much of the discussion has been about what analogy comes closest. At this point it's like and you can keep it -- if it's considered -- safe. Then you could be legally compelled to hand over the key to. At that happened but other examples include the Supreme Court saying independents can be forced to provide fingerprints blood samples voice recordings. On the other hand civil libertarians say that you cannot be forced to give compelled testimonial communications. In which case -- encryption darkened at the pass phrases are considered communications. It would. Interesting we'll be watch and it. And -- a U wanna take a guess or -- I think they're not she's not going to decrypt or her computer. I agree. That's my gut I agree I think the Fifth Amendment is sufficiently broad that it would that it would cover that I don't think it's like -- -- a -- because I think the information that may be content. Decrypt and captures information -- via. I'm a move right ahead to the -- story actually we have a little data. The data porn for you -- you -- project has put a result of its the first survey that it's -- looking at Smartphone ownership. Which I think it's fascinating to that this project as you know sort of they basically -- research into like our lives on the Internet so -- the first time that they've done device specific information about our lives on the Internet and they found that. 35%. Of all US adults own a smart phone. And that 25%. Of those people prefer Smartphones to. I love that that's all of us here via a -- -- I really do act list that there in my house for the laptop and other room in your own phone -- and supplement on the -- Let's see they say when the -- -- just mobile phone owners -- if it's like they say. Twit 35% of all US adults own a Smartphone but if you narrow that down to all the -- -- -- -- a phone at all than an amber -- that 42% of Smartphones for Smartphone ownership eighty -- 87% of Smartphone owners go online or get email and 68%. Do so daily. 53 Google's that by the way the 53% of Smartphone owners are online multiple times that oh definitely flash Alford -- Well this is you know -- now that I look at this survey a little closer this is also the same survey brought to our. The same group that likes to break down -- -- Smartphone ownership by -- in at ethnicity I'm still trying to figure allocated -- -- Our right not that there's white nonhispanic black thing on it at a make -- are. We're 100%. Smart Asians -- separate spent some -- -- the I'm just -- And I'm trying to find my identity according to the U research study does actually -- ridiculous just give me some. Bar. I don't bar right down right down the bottom candidate -- well because -- that raises a whole can of worms -- behind a huge argument about it and the Asia Pacific islander on marina I've -- -- -- forms that I -- it's. This -- bundle together that's on things I need identity with -- serving our I don't know where my -- -- Speaking of the numbers. Apparently Steve Ballmer take some swipes at Apple's Mac sales numbers and everything you know where -- actually also other interesting for -- -- of course on him. He -- put a Mac sales -- -- -- windows machines have sold somewhere around 350 million units. -- compared to other companies that when a name to only sold around twenty million units but there are also other kind of -- -- it's about this -- earlier push gene. Xbox and being right Xbox is their most successful physical. Hardware product that we've seen to date so their time out to be an integration one thing that I thought was -- -- is he talked about Windows Phone 7. And he claimed that they've sold. -- -- so they've sold millions of phones. Loaded with Windows Phone 7. -- though yet although he also said that he did not considered a success yet. I'm trying to have you seen a Windows Phone in the wild yet. One that's that's my barometer via -- one so maybe they're sold into business or maybe they're sold into Microsoft's business like employee unit. But I haven't seen too many Windows Phone 7 users -- and millions of phone -- -- -- That's in his name but -- main push is talking about the integration across all their products Windows Phone 7 until Microsoft Xbox so there you know tablet platform blob. It's -- integration is their big push for the coming year and that should but he he made it clear that Windows Phone 7 has -- -- Houston. On that topic he shouted we've gone from very small to very small but it's been -- -- of the year. Little a little a little ways to go. You know the crowd of the audience gets company here those type of raises. Many are at let's move on to the cricket -- in this. -- Mac pros and MacBook Air is rumored to launch this week with OS-X lion that's according a nine to five Mac. My sources are still I don't. I don't think the Mac pros are coming this week but -- closing on the stored in an overnight shift. -- we should expect to see at least MacBook airs this week. According to insiders and Knutson and by the annals to people who -- for the new cannot wait for -- this go may cut as many as 101000. Jobs -- or about 14% of its workforce to revive profit growth. The cuts include as many as 7000 jobs -- be eliminated by the end of August -- Which is insane as we know it seems as exiting -- and it's less profitable and profitable businesses. Like flip video little -- one you have. Mainly because other competitors are taking marketer and they're just trying to name -- and images products. It too many employees and we're trying to do too -- thing. But they're hiring in China and setting up all that Big Brother I read airlock. That's when it after they've decided to other energy -- off and -- buying them to have the Chinese Government -- And have the big is in the back -- with from the consumer side you also have that -- product. That -- because of its price has really been impossible to catch on. -- -- -- -- and notes they went they went. -- -- probably mean are you still get NASA is now when he said -- -- into the back and -- I -- -- I -- big. What is in your. -- -- -- Call -- also. Horrible sad more depressing news for -- is beginning its -- linked -- has passed MySpace. As the number two US. Social network. Can you believe that I let her at that matter any linked in his continue to -- it Dave Dave -- -- -- spot for business but men. -- -- greater being that's sexy back to MySpace when linked in Kenya -- now it's pretty bad. I think this is Timberlake burst big mistake in -- back guy knows what's up but now that's. You know I did say though out of all the celebrities. Becoming -- of directors of a company you know it will land with Intel and gaga with -- written that. A musician actually aligning with MySpace makes the most sense out of all of them because it was a music product by nature. So we don't have cancer causing carved -- -- we'll see but Linkedin kudos to you -- -- down MySpace. -- -- And Siebel finally catch -- -- snapped at long last at least with the iPad app which is the band been around since late last year and only worked with the Tivo premiere. Which -- -- only 47 people have heard about not just say is -- They have now rolled out the iPhone and iPod Touch version of the app which is basically the iPad app reworked -- smaller screen and all of them now work. With the Tivo HD and series three boxes although all features -- -- I appreciate yet that's the thing you can't access all the features but at least you can schedule recordings. Premier -- devices I have an old school -- -- so I feel like. While they sent me a little love after -- a year and a half moons summonses they finally right now maybe we should make the mobile app that's compatible there are other parts -- -- by the premier. I have one thing I -- myself gathering dust -- -- the universe in an area. Nineteen Craig's list. Compared with that you're at one -- anyway you can find inside. In any other suns bounce and benevolent and now the object of the future -- -- -- You'll never admit that some excellent. And I think it's that it how bad things. We all make mistakes that ensured that sing about but he does think about a lot of the global whistle -- -- blow the whistle at -- they have been able to listen. And report. -- happy happy anniversary -- -- I love that headline on parts and I -- at 265. Years the most distant planet. It back where we found it six and then and now this actually pretty awesome I did not -- -- So Neptune was basically discovered -- -- seen. Another. Little info nugget is Neptune was also the first planet discovered via a mathematical prediction rather than by telescopic observation. A -- man named earlier let me live via live games in the end ineptly. He he's a mathematician that puzzle puzzled by I -- you -- Uranus is refusal. I wanted to -- the other way to act the way gravity said it would should so he predicted the existence of -- -- -- And then they discovered it with a telescope later on if you -- -- -- -- is like yes this doesn't look read the gravity doesn't look right up there think there's a big giant body floating around -- -- right that's an X ray he just math. LL -- live happy amendment is big. I.s and of them yeah props to you and happy. Anniversary. It's no it wasn't here but anyway you're never -- Neptune and earth year love it. -- let's get to your calls and emails. Just email today actually although keeping calls -- in -- One and it's excellent 663 is our phone number and we we have made a new rule.
