FLASHBACK! Ep. 1223: We'll be watching you

Culture
Mean yeah. Today's Friday may seventh 201090s now I'm -- -- from Hollywood -- -- buzz out -- CNET podcast of indeterminate -- -- episode 12123. Lu -- the Brian Tong for saving our -- and I -- -- I could let them through -- goes down it click the big thing happened last Friday I think -- right hey why can't we really learned our lesson do we forget that the schedule co -- So. -- -- -- Well and don't throw Brian Tong there then we're like oh my -- who has the best. Possible option we never looked began has nothing to do right now and we are -- -- the Nobel Prize all is there any NASA facilities and they'll always have it you could be some sort of about it -- probably -- like DT Friday attended that meeting Friday that it it -- it's easy. It is. We actually we -- to start off today show with. A spanking a public spanking up public -- may not cause it won't be weird that's why I'm here it will not only I mean -- prime time here's those things by. I mean it's not like that don't know so the other today it we recommended sort of by proxy. The drive dot LY. App for Android because a lot of people wrote to us that hey this app does otter responding to attack than driving. Thousand of you like it got whimper kept that up in order it. -- okay turns out did didn't -- art was. I'm still feeling any. Oh this because when we heard about it I install the during the show and then later found out that they had like automatically followed me to their Twitter feed without without asking. So I I removed the the app and I also realize that they -- -- up for automatic estimates text messages when I installed the app -- today -- -- -- move this up few days ago it's already to strike -- I. I already total users sorry it's -- think dot -- drive I think they Ottawa. That a and -- today I get onto my -- but -- account Alec my profile. And within my profile there's you light no. Drop the drives -- dot alive like they have automatically like to me to it and FaceBook as well -- -- obviously. It's amazing that they did all of that stuff without asking you symbol but seriously it opted demands of following. Net in them on Twitter and then what they like the -- SMS yes for SMS notification that I had an ongoing internal -- and live. And people wonder why we hate these new privacy changes which we will talk about later -- -- it and yeah yeah and I'm and we hate anything that is often -- do not do or opt out our -- -- don't -- to me and you opt out features. Especially like applications. Frees -- just so used to find these applications installing right -- and expecting that if you like you can just -- -- I took it -- But yet but the effects are still there and it's a bit and and knowing it. And knowing that it -- like you know if this does not -- -- let's be clear this is drive lately behaving badly right. But the way that -- is -- I'd never be applied like it like for the rest of his life. It can -- of the Michelle up there's like that do love drive -- dads like in the -- and is asking how did it know you where you logged in on your Blackberry while I was logged. I'm okay I got this -- -- -- and the wave. You know they've integrated everything in his -- and it makes it very difficult to no end there -- TV and expects that this might happen. I guess that actually makes perfect sense now but I think about it they are always log your life and that's exactly. -- that is today's anyways -- loud public spanking that's right drive -- good idea. Bad behavior over the logo would do little I think we need -- satellite and that's not a matter that happens a -- thank that out pretty blue and -- potential of like they understood. -- -- It's -- it's -- authority -- enough according to the higher ups which it's not an outlet now it's not know it but it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- FaceBook has announced that it is rolling out location based check in services. And that MacDonald -- leaders partner and pollution which is I mean. Kind of funny but as as early as this month may the social networking site will give users the ability to post their location within a status update McDonald. Is building an application but that would allow users to check in -- one of its restaurant and have a featured product appear in the post. Such as an -- quarter pounder who bore him while it was. So that they you know when I first heard this. And -- -- -- that it's funny like McDonald's one McDonald's but then if you look at the larger picture of this thing right now they're able to partner and this is one thing that where it. Could have some more says not to mention that it's but as 450 million users that. As more businesses partner with them will potentially use these location based services but the the food stuff the craze that is going while right now the double down it can't -- I hop has this new pancake that has cheesecake in between the two pancakes. And it's one of those things that as these crazy. One way to see this is that these crazy food phenomena as take off. I could see someone who uses state that be like I want people know that I mean the double down here right now I want people to know -- in the cheesecake and a right now it just creates this -- mentality where people are. More willing to play with it and then it's -- expanding to other businesses and then you have all will face but community to pull from. Wow that its its sickens with the other cute if that thing happening and I first of all that -- Kate thank you as well. -- -- -- It thickened now that doubled down to is not like to work is the -- in between UVs public opinion yeah he's seen as your bytes that it in the fried chicken is there but that's true she uses and that than. The pride chicken of the -- to -- is -- cheese and two pieces that they can't. And anyway. They I then I. I'll I'll get I -- totally out animal that they can get now but -- -- that we think about the whole basement I think having the idea of faith but getting like basically. Look out or expert is the only. -- Internet and now it I mean it's you know -- -- just crossed. A million users. Now FaceBook is getting into that game like that and they got 300 million of them. It it shows that this do you think that the check in thing is here Tuesday you know whatever reason though I don't care I personal or I'm no and I really I -- the -- do not want my FaceBook news feed. All of a sudden just be a list of where everybody everybody as -- -- -- and I -- and boring is that. I'd actually rather see them just put that put -- that what they're eating Allah Twitter campaign and now it's dead there. Not just like -- now I'm -- you know I'm diner. The the only thing that those other apps even though they have a smaller community have going for them as they have that that game element right. Yeah badges. Does not have any errors but not too difficult to believe that -- but -- that -- -- -- -- and this at all well and if anything actually they're probably gonna start they're gonna get way better deal right -- -- yes hello -- many users -- for the marketers -- argument kind of experimenting with more -- You know now they're gonna be all over the statement and if that is -- mr. comin' up with. Prizes and LB specials and I -- -- this to me if anything is going to take that. That check in idea to the next level. Yeah and especially for vendors and stuff like that because through foursquare if you happen to be in the mayor -- something. And other place and the actual vendors there is working with -- foursquare they'll offer deal 25% off frame of the mayor ball block. Well if they are now dealing with with FaceBook instead of who's who the hell is foursquare like everybody does it -- of those deals are probably gonna come. And also and also kind of another piece this puzzle that I read earlier just popped in my mind. I recently won the venture capitalist or birth or foursquare I think they're -- Anderson -- it's big pulled out of their funding just like them. About a week you actually got a week or we can have ago showing the momentum and or squares -- of been -- of the champions of the location based services. But you see like you said the advertisers going to -- FaceBook platform that has -- that's kind of a telling sign as well. Also Google this week said at the web 2.0 expo that latitude. Which is essentially. At least has the potential to be a fourth where like app. Is not only not dead but it has three million users sportswear just crossed the million my -- regenerate -- heard of has two million it's comforting. Ha -- that over 10% of all Android users are using latitude and latitude is the app that runs on Android phones that -- that basically just kind of follows you wherever you go no you aren't into it right you opt in mid and a man luckily I -- -- about it and certainly an outline here. -- -- -- -- that's that's really nice of them and it says in the like Google Maps integrated into your Google Maps and stuff like that's the latency other contacts using latitude where they are on yeah right now and what the one thing -- it's in is that because the iPhone platform which obviously has millions tens of millions of devices out there. Has not at the moment I'm until the new iPhone OS comes out. Integrated location services to run the background Google has not been able to implement latitude on the iPhone platform at all right so the fact that they're having this mobile growth or latitude user growth. On sure what they played out that Lee said. -- a quarter of their users have zero friends. Maybe as well so maybe they opt in and they don't really -- it yet because no one else does. But the fact is out once that opens up and if they've may apply app for the iPhone with they probably will be able once they get access to the guy on -- -- an avid an Andrea that's right growth absolutely. Once I think once Google -- you know that what this shows that anything is that they are waking up to the fact at this location based service model is. -- -- exploding and pretty much the next big thing you know and that there and that they feel like they're perfectly positioned they haven't always on product. It's already on phones its its native to the platform that is -- anything double digit growth. And they could put out a native iPhone up. And that they're they're they're basically just and a at least that -- to put out -- -- -- it. Strange thing is though there's something different -- -- like I'm afraid to use latitude I'm afraid to opt into it. And like I've been using foursquare and since the summit -- -- like our and I guess I got you know try to insult out. So I don't know exactly why I launched what foursquare and -- in the places because it's not like actually get anything out out of didn't but I -- just because they feel like I should. Whereas with -- like I'm afraid to I feel like. We got -- with the whole buzz thing yeah and then it's that whole like idea of does anyone out there who happens to know my profile -- Google knowing exactly where I -- at any time like with foursquare. For some reason is different with -- I've I've determined that these are the people that level that I want to know where I -- when I checked in somewhere with Google. I don't know for certain who gets that information and that. I like bigger than I am willing to get it up with. Look of the group all of just -- here -- like they're -- machine that let me on it they are creepy and they they know everything about you like they're not as overt. As if that necessarily with -- we know everything about you and we're gonna do whatever we want that anytime anytime any day in the very making enough money than -- -- Allegra be about it. But they know everything latitude is connected with all service that anything -- other things the creepy about it is that it always thought. -- the latitude is always running in the background basically compiling a constant history of where you've ever -- drive. -- -- your -- so little cycle the law. -- step that you take liked. It you do if you gave yeah you'll have a little hydrant in around where you've been like a one handed that's kind of ST on the other hand it's kind of scary -- -- -- don't want that information I don't even wanna know where I've been yeah arrived at the. You know that's bad but that's -- now and I'm happy little unknown -- let's put the past behind them. And I don't even know we cannot think of we're going after Google it -- -- let's move on. I doubt and -- and about their lot now one day I didn't you use. -- -- -- -- -- Went in there I think it would probably in Edmonton one. Analyst -- and let's figure experienced massive user well but we'll get to that later yeah. Births actually gonna take a little bit of a break and then when we come back Nokia and Apple and not only one. This podcast is brought to you by Squarespace -- web design tool that allows anyone to easily add picture galleries forums FE -- or any other type of page to their own website. Without knowing a line of code find out more at www. Squarespace dot com. Are you laughing at other. -- -- -- -- things every breath you take. I'm hoping asking him to protect them from Nokia is doing Apple well and the they've bowed to him that he's the nicoderm and -- -- -- -- -- -- -- cannot do that -- we continue. -- -- well later -- mega look at it out that holds and then moving back to when about. -- -- On my blog post production of the -- -- Apple for patent infringement against filed a lawsuit alleging. That Apple infringes Apple I've -- three -- specifically. In printed on I have both of Nokia's patent they are tied to technologies -- -- -- and data transmission. User -- using positioning data in applications. And innovations and antenna configurations and improve performance and they've. -- -- who what phone that's coming out doesn't do this. Yeah I am you know and they had their point -- yeah -- yeah. It might my -- -- -- Pacific they I'm just saying. Yeah they they did -- similar lawsuit let in at earlier 2009 bullet in the iPhone -- on GSM and wireless Lan standard patents. And helping anything has come out of that yet. That's in its -- even. Volley ball back in -- I think -- yeah this one though apparently Nokia is serious about bringing it to -- settlement or trial quickly they filed in the western district of Wisconsin which is a so called. Rocket docket if you think it they went to Wisconsin did they wonder -- -- the video because apparently that particular. Court. It gets these things -- Moving quickly so and gadget thing that means we -- -- the real movement. On this dispute in our lifetime because -- Many don't really what I didn't like these these lawsuits if -- seem to be like Saber rattling or you know there is the way to get -- -- -- -- -- that you hear about the big file but when the last I heard about when being settled her. Or completed like the -- Echostar won. That happened something happened something that Sony made a little money in the they both moved on three years later right boot just like they're yelling and each other -- the more. An Intel on the other hand is apparently preparing to go to war against Apple. You go and -- because. The -- has I guess just started for them the way right they just realized like oh crap we should. Be fighting instead of just like what they did is they built this really big -- empire kind of up on a mountain like a month. Night among portrait that whatever Amanda invading words just have been slowly climbing -- the -- Linley -- holes in the fortress and an antenna like bulk up. Yes that's all a bunch of money for the first time in six -- -- -- lots than Nintendo's president. As Al right called Apple as the and then pull them out as the enemy of the future right. While this I love Japan I love and it -- like the idea that your business cultures based on Catholic terms of war and a half. -- hilarious and yeah the enemy of the future -- He just -- a business way. Because apparently for at and Nokia error net Nokia and Nintendo just announced that their profits were down for the first time in six years as image in the reversal ports and made them think thank. Who's the real problem here because it's not thinking necessarily Sony and Microsoft even -- -- -- after making their own forays into -- oriented gaming the iPhone. And of course the iPad are big competitors in. That that more casual gaming arena and especially the areas that they DS has been like their big moneymaker we think of that we had beaten anemic but India is the -- net that they have another part time. You know it -- the experiences of basically bottom line is you can put an iPhone and iPod -- in your pocket. You can't really put a DS in your pocket yeah and and they came out with his figured yes XL that's like twice the size of a DS and I don't know why. That's not gonna help -- and it's new 3-D EDS. That's just weird when they call them -- immediate future I'm sorry but the worst and it been going on a long time their. -- and I keep them doing anything any time at the press and I don't want civil war's over but it -- is in my mind I mean. Like the DS's blown away. They're gonna have to be something totally different but it can't just -- new versions of idea because the thing about the DS that pretty much only -- to it. I'd say casual kids in that very -- very very casual gamers but those very very casual gamers. Are gonna get an iPhone got -- and very device I mean I think is missing about a little -- even to say that Apple is the enemy of the future any smart. Any mobile platform Android is the enemy of the answer I mean I know that you know the iPhone has. All the buzz right now -- the big you know kind of gaming -- -- But like there's no reason that the Nexus One incredible that HT TE -- I mean yeah huge debris that until -- screen and it seller on that are in all of the things that you need to -- -- gaming platform out of it like there's not any of those devices are the enemy of the -- -- hardly does Apple. Anyway. That little -- that it felt like the Nintendo will see which duty three a legit guys know -- that they're not hold. And appear FaceBook or are once again just. Lot out missing I think at least in my opinion completely missing user sentiment. Let's or at least being buried indeed -- There there there in some sort of bubble well we have no idea what type of error is -- that bubble. Because basically they're saying that users love the privacy changes and that the media AK us and other -- are the ones that are. Bringing awareness to what these privacy changes are and making people hate -- but because of them. Great but actually real uses the side. You know because no one in the media actually spoke against -- Colorado we don't actually isn't a talk about it they -- and I'm gonna bring. Not among the 300 million people that live network and especially -- that what the tech press we would never is that. Ethan beard director of -- developer network said quote the response from users speak very very loudly that they love what we're doing. I think there's a lot of other -- that's not coming from users necessarily. There's been a lot of interest from the media from organizations and officials but -- -- the user response. Has been overwhelmingly -- I'll tell you know why it's -- positives because no one knew what they no one even. Ten out of ten people like talked about this'll privacy being -- you what was going on -- like -- like this that yes. -- -- -- So I -- -- And I and that way they I mean it's true I think that the people who have a sense of how public every I mean that's the problem in some ways you know -- -- you can eat. Your Facebook is out an out banking on the fact that most users don't know anything. About privacy they don't know the difference between what's public and what's not a lot of them frankly don't care because they don't totally understand the ramifications. Or the ramifications -- that big -- deal and they just aren't so philosophically. You know opposed to the idea that like. I mean what if they you know the airport's just started coming along and -- the -- perhaps. You might well follow at. -- -- So anonymous that I'm glad FaceBook feels that everyone loves it and that -- -- the bad guys they just don't know. They don't don't know what they're going on don't and it is unconscionable to me that if that would basically be like. They love it -- trust me explain it later they love the drag that we slip into the water to keep them happy you know like it's a little. Your users love it yes you know what it is the job of the media to say okay. Ignorant masses. It's true you are not aware that this is happening you are not aware that FaceBook is taking a -- of your information and putting it out publicly without you totally being aware of suddenly. And you can anyway and it's totally different way without asking you and you think like. Because they got that now I'd like -- instead of just the word you know like now it does doesn't like gods like a link that connected to the people in a -- yeah. So here's the thing. That's why they call as the watch -- -- you watch anything but. I'll be more at ease didn't condemn them to talk to prop -- the Clinton to. And we have a theme I think it's now completely. -- and it. Only one of those people at. Well what exchange but what is up with a Google search pages like don't like every time but. Google says the date they have they changed that the search result page. -- public is -- right yeah. Yeah and -- a landing page -- there when I went thousand expecting it to the ultimate economic counts just the thing that is once you actually considered an answer to us options and said yeah it -- it. -- didn't really he's very much but yeah -- All I mean what we're talking looks totally weird but it was couple days before Google -- anything about it and and now they've set -- -- in a blog post yes we have new layout -- you're surged. Wasn't I actually got the record to I didn't have somehow been changed -- like Yahoo! that the that would so like our. They said that it was you meet rising expectations for search from increasingly savvy users they want you to take the design and making a little bit better the left hand navigation panel. This must offer more functionality. Without distracting from primary search is actually -- -- -- it looks a little -- being. Now in Manhattan. Which is kind of interest thing they said it repressions and streamline the look feel and functionality of Google first. I mean I'm not -- to get all crazy about re designs or anything but a first. -- -- it does as they look at it a little more it does look cleaner but for some reason -- -- -- nice the fact that had so much more if -- there's more information there even as jumbled as it was. -- able to make sense of it I think in the long run this is. -- no one's gonna be affected by this but it does look a little cleaner what else is many ads on the side. It was strange to me he is that it just and it looks like they took the top left hand corner stuff and put it along the side. -- -- -- -- -- almost like they're they're duplicating it is putting it ended in places. And a stack is I mean I use that those links to all the time -- events and urged the images mode are going to new users you know you've pulled out -- blogs of the stuff clinics will be easier. This kind of like why you know it is guys it's the colorful icons. That users really relate to Malia Abbott yeah exactly seriously they don't want until words but I thought has little colors look but can't for a purple images. Blue this is fun that's what it is I think the other thing that it. And it looks to me like but you know what I don't like about it now I finally have pinpointed when and if it bugs me. Is that because they put that left -- them there the whole page and the results area is narrower. -- that -- the page longer and I like I can't see as much like I really liked -- to get a lot of my information. Without clicking through -- -- seemed a little description that -- up there and now I feel like it's a little less readable. And I can't see as much stuff on one page is very subtle though we're just pointing out ought to be some it's gonna be like -- has complained about now -- -- -- -- -- like I don't want to separate them but you know what that I'm typing it out about what I don't like as I I don't I can't see as much information. At a glance so in terms of doing like really 33. I -- and of having the smart painted yeah. Which is probably what they want to -- you to click on -- links and make more. AO. You have totally -- that. Understand Amazon -- -- -- what I'll -- I'll be watching you to rule. -- a benefit Canada. And every every step you make every year revamp your every move you make. You take and make. -- get a judge has to make the media's requests and a consortium of media outlets including -- -- -- had been asking a judge to read deal. The reasoning basically behind issuing and granting the search warrant -- Jason -- on the Gizmodo editor who. Revealed the details about the off -- -- and -- -- a judge has. -- that request yet used to make it public right now. The the reason for the ceiling on the judge says is that the document currently contains names of two individuals at the please don't want to alert. But they're still trying to investigate that are part of this whole big thing. So -- that's the case that makes that I've -- for the select YURYYU. Keeping things -- mountain but if they're trying to you know follow a few more threads. Okay I actually and but they'll they'll put this thing -- You think out of I don't think it can't figure it always has been -- We're maintaining the security of an ongoing investigation which may well be compromised by the disclosure of the search warrant affidavit okay -- like. The phone is back in Apple's possession yes. Big guy who'd found the phone. Has been found. Big the editors who talked about the phone. -- have had all their computers -- Yeah and then I think they even know about the person who like tried to help -- -- alone for the various blogs but there's two other guys Molly. We've got to know there's two other guys we've got. Yeah we've got to figure this out what which. What is definitely -- How -- bigger more out about the fact that a drug got lost bone another guy picked up and Intel the bartender about it meningitis belt is the -- how in God's name has has turned into like a 24 level investigation had. I don't -- going to you know let's think you could passport not -- that all doesn't not investigate likened likened murdered Sunday but the -- really looked. Yeah yeah what. -- -- I mean I am sorry bit. This is getting ridiculous. But. More ridiculous error -- beyond me watching you keep. Our task force's network. That's right -- hard -- task -- dollars -- editors. And editors and -- their product news that borders has the Kindle now. And it's hot it's hot right beautiful it's called the Cobo. -- And if it is an ugly mother -- visual blue thing on it fled with a little meaning what you mean that's the cool -- -- It has a -- the back did not look at that that a quilted like I like material. Like like. I that the clause designers and think we know it doesn't really matter right -- -- it's -- about -- -- -- -- clone it's a little weird with that blue blob on there but. It is a 180. Dollars. Many don't know it but I just not to my copycat and cottage. -- -- spell cat like reflexes -- theory -- that equipment -- added even -- yeah. But it's only 150 -- and I have to say. That the media Blake oath that I wanna go back and I'm a month from -- yes. This is the scandals are still pretty expensive price -- -- -- if you -- and then an iPad like Wi-Fi eight iPad apps that 500 have -- hundred or you're gonna have for the basic you have but you but you get a lot more. For that for that and I hope so I just feel like. A year ago the Kindle paradigm of pricing and everything like that kind of -- a lot more sense now suddenly that -- Being priced really high it doesn't signal -- lot of sense and most prices need to come down 150 is actually within that range. That if all you really care about are in a -- a lot of books I'm reading it. You know this might just be good enough for -- and I'm not much money. The -- -- thing is gonna have really is a of the brand dean and the name of the Kindle. Being so recognizable and now the -- that -- going to be sold in retail outlets like target. People and I mean who. What. Target demographic is totally -- -- what the -- -- rate. In general so -- and why it you know how how are they gonna make people know about the Scoble I don't think -- Willis is gonna be on the -- if someone happens to see it and see the price point that's on the pick up. If anything -- know what I'm hoping is that it it with price put pressure on him avuncular that and yeah yeah I gotta say I was totally like. I am buying my mom Kindle from others Davis is the year if you can't get around one iPad and -- it's. Our holiday and returned -- -- mom but trust me it's really having. Has she wanted it as a reader public and -- Kindle and I go to Amazon I really thought about it now I go there and -- like blues and I and I literally that might help. In god how is the Kindle the -- -- it happens. -- let's get the one I like I can't believe that they -- -- on -- when I need at least what many nine. It -- been done I would have lot of it would have been on the late tonight and -- -- as an 199 separate from my from the -- seriously totally. Yes so I I feel like this price point is really important in the in terms of the marketplace development like I really want you to practice readers can now -- that the good start. Also near. I think they have to get. Especially like now that I think about the beginnings of the MP3 kind of movement. Where he had all those players and they were really expensive and it really in retrospect they help like -- six minutes -- that's. He had to transfer on like a couple of CDs and -- or whatever yeah you're okay with it because it is the new technology and not allowed you you know to have that extra -- -- -- Pretty small player play a couple of CD's of your pocket. I feel like the. It you know -- also when your time out that that that you metre challenge also is even if the next generation of it's not a big -- jump because we have these LCD screens with better looking color you know to make an. A hundred to 200 dollars more than the previous generation they don't have that advantage in our brain cell. And now I'd I think for the tablet integrate it and temple it into those little hybrid greens they can for integrity -- -- Alec. Now -- the of the idea of spending that kind of money or just. The outlawed -- is still. Did I just -- I don't get to build and pilot and everything -- -- -- -- you could fit. No intent. Alright I'm here on the stock market news because we are super while I'm on them. As a financial analysts myself I'd like -- that's right. The now it didn't -- -- up in the New York Times actually it's on the blog -- book. About how part of the reason that the -- I don't know if you heard but there was a pretty big stock market crashed yesterday here in the United States. And people are speculating that it was. -- her possibly caused by a city group -- entering a instead of an M per million. During. A particular trade and that that may have. That that that essentially caused them in -- cell. -- as one official put it a huge anomalous and -- third in selling it looks like in Chicago. And then if that off all of this trading based on computer algorithms because every part of this doctoring system now is so heavily automated. Interconnected and fast moving. That one little typo like that is that -- is like unbelievable. Ripple. That spiraled out of control in conflict a total cascading effect and a massively get 20% drop or more -- -- 10% drop. In the -- That actually -- the near key exchange stock exchange to halt trading. Or -- out that they were freaking out like what's going on there to think on the go -- The -- acted like show this kind of level and then also it -- off the map. And then comes back up. Yeah it's pretty crazy but though that the red appointment times -- think that if they talked about how everything is so so wired for efficient he now that the market can respond. In milliseconds. To any little changed but that's so much faster than people can respond that -- -- like. Billions with the -- of dollars in damage before. People can really even get a chance to react. They make a -- of -- you know the downside of super technologically automated systems yet it's so far reaching you can't just do. There is now -- the UKL and do yeah on that -- like. Maybe maybe it's okay if the programs implement now window like are you sure you want it they'll along with this in action yes are you sure sure -- like I think they should assure you wanna be -- seven I think that would be okay physics review literature. He triple -- -- because they've got so they thought they spam this there's this high frequency trading which is rapid automated buying and selling. And in recent years it's taken off it now accounts for fifty to 75%. Of daily trading volume actually different kind of trading. That is super fast more than 60% of trading in stocks -- on the New York Stock Exchange take place on separate computerized exchanges. And yeah maybe they do need to have them better built in -- -- -- FYI if you sell a billion shares of Procter & Gamble right now. That in a break the Internet the world that's gonna break the world -- atoms in the chat room recommends that maybe they should get a clip be for the stock stock market. You can I thought it looks like you're trying to posts seven billion shares of Bryan gamble some than any I don't know little and I don't do it. That's all. Your -- to break the world into and -- -- In. I doubt -- -- high frequency trading. And then finally if you if you do make a bad decision of some sort -- time -- Billington and -- Mac and but if you make a bad decision. It looks like may be washing your hands and just wash your hands of it. Can actually make you feel that this -- gotta be a Friday story here is right on a Friday at times I make -- air. A couple of researchers at the University of Michigan conducted -- study asking students to choose between two objects out of several they had ranked. When the students washed their hands after making the choice they seem to experience left cognitive dissonance. While in two did not wash their hands behaved as if they needed to justify their choices themselves. -- -- You decide on Mac and cheese instead of salad then. And then you're you're like Aaron agonizing -- -- used to -- but apparently you just go and watching him think you're kind of -- -- did wash our hands -- chooses the right decision that you know -- that it. -- -- -- lost my hand I read this story and I immediately felt like. -- they they if that college students about the task of choosing -- -- but themselves out of that a thirty and then ranking them in order Akron. Participating they got the -- of there if there's extra things TD. But then when they group like and they were split into two groups -- watch again today and the others just evaluated liquid soap packet. Let's switch whatever elected so when -- -- group just rearranged their 1080 students that did not wash their hands ranked the CD they chose higher. -- like they've given -- job is that I was that why your choice there's that button right now. That'd justify why they took that when they were trying to say like I -- -- and -- I've -- that -- -- number thick book war. But the student that did wash their hands just ranked it about the same they were like whatever and I don't know an arena the treaty recent. I'm good I'm glad people are paid for that I don't like this this is crap that the university is it's not like they were taking time out of our lively where that -- or someone took time out of their lives when they -- -- -- these guys we'd have washed their hands what do we do hey guys I don't know does make it -- oversaw the -- don't even though it uses CDs anymore let's just -- thirty out there and let his kids rank them in wash their hands. -- -- -- -- I know I don't know the -- is that physical cleanliness never broader impact on individual psychology than previously thought with it. It's important and is now everybody watching it watching have been linked to abolition of moral guilt -- -- -- a perception. -- -- So clearly. Every time I make the Prius joke that Tom I'm gonna wash my hands you the -- -- Every time you decide to me that this show as -- enough. And you feel like he needs you know you gotta -- that to tell. Them those again. I like it the chicken lunch hours. Are we are we gonna do emails or any of it now for -- -- it's not there right now -- from Kyle who called us that 1806 let's -- the any key to victory in answering. And said if they like -- and dances with. -- It's not -- Kyle from -- -- what this show. So we've been talking about creepy -- -- reading the news on -- via and got -- -- pat from. Travelocity and flights from Columbus to Berlin. Not that weird but I studied abroad in Germany and have recently been looking at ticket all around the Internet. For going back to visit. This movement that's -- little too perfect I'm not -- I'd be concerned because I checked and you -- in these. -- -- -- -- Yeah it editors work. -- blah -- you fail Obama can be hidden than than the government and the reason all being flung. And every step you take all over any Internet. They are watching you like that if you're logged him. Especially if you're like an -- if -- like at thirty that we I mean it's kind of it's kind of funny -- This is the thing that we got talking about right and the -- when he's like. It that's -- you know be that this is how it's supposed to work. Every click -- this is an Israeli civilians and guess that however on the other side that it be theory though use if you decide that -- -- that's cool if you're actually going around the web looking at. Personal massager -- or acted not -- problem or even in my computer -- you know that you aren't yet again and I look at that -- Port for example. You know it's just sort of like depending on what you're doing -- on the web you may want to consider a lot of the the query goes by the charting private yet he's getting a bit but -- -- -- -- how. Load it in half ago FYI you're being -- -- enough that they can do with it. Now you know. You know -- and emails this one's from Paul from the University of North Texas Molly. I took your advice from several days ago it started deleting my profile data. To make my FaceBook profile as bare bones as possible that way when they -- finally just ot me in a publicly sharing everything there is nothing left to share. I logging yesterday to have a pop up from -- -- -- me to verify some of the new settings he gets let. All of the items I -- deleted were there and I had to uncheck every field. As do not share them this -- did and I have deleted it and why isn't it gone. -- -- -- love the show. Habibie is exactly we're talking about yeah and that's probably one of the parts I have hardest part time reading through is that if I choose to delete something new expected to be deleted by it sounds like it -- just kind -- remove -- they hold on of the information age and it might be useful to them they they. Painted in the in the picture that you know if you decide Q. Re sign up for it they're kind of doing you -- to start information so it's a little bit easier for you if they cut -- -- -- out not if it. I don't you may want -- eventually some days that's why were holding -- but still flight. You want depleted the -- can you delete your FaceBook account. You know you'll you can deactivate it you can yeah yeah it definitely still hold on that if they -- -- all the data and in fact that was one of the changes that they announce -- -- eight which was that instead of now storing your data per predetermined set of time and then deleting it. They're -- gonna keep it -- And break even even -- third party you know app developers they used to have do you have your data go away after 24 hours yeah you know like. Twitter novel all these other -- that -- -- data they now have the ability to hold her upper and as long as they want now actually. -- -- -- And -- you okay. In Washington you. Yeah this is how -- pop yeah. That's how they wanted to work on we gotta we got going he'll love it we got some other like emails -- -- files from people like well if you don't like it just -- It's it's it's shut down -- -- yeah what that it. That's the problem I want you to be a -- -- I believe I really -- what about your energy attachments and -- deactivated. That is so annoying how both of us in the media just keep talking about -- not and it. I mean everyone loves and you'll -- is that -- we see these as people look at that. Ten everything from Washington they kill me. And says better not wish for net neutrality with too much bigger as I understand it. They would stop things like podcasts with with what they consider not have anywhere like conservative blogs podcasts and the like. The problem that scenario is that the next administration might consider other things like -- I'll have to be of no -- We don't need government stomping on -- -- -- Love the show. And I think he has that little can. A panel of but I love can felicity there's this really terrible thing has happen. In the world where -- net neutrality somehow. I'm not exactly sure how became a part is an issue instead of a technological issue because I guess. That because of business -- not -- apparently now but net neutrality is simply -- At principle that would mean that certain content cannot be prioritized. Over other content. By ISPs in terms of delivery so like and I feel like okay so let me just make it easier right. Comcast can't say we're gonna bring you Google Video faster than Hulu video and let's Hulu pays us more. That's what a -- Internet it it means that a content provider like Hulu might have to pay a little protection money to Comcast. In order to make sure that their data gets delivered in a timely fashion there would be a higher tier. Of service. But those content providers. Already pay to have their stuff delivered though and then consumers -- pay to receive it and they pay more if they wanna get faster more reliable plans. There is no -- the what's happening is that the telecommunications industry wants to get paid to -- -- three times really heat they wanna get paid by the consumer with various tiers of pricing plans they also want to get paid by the content providers. For delivering their content. And then they want the content providers in some cases the have to pay extra to make sure the content gets there even though it's their job you just deliver the content. So the principle of net neutrality is you'd have to deliver the bringing content you're getting paid or. I don't know at what point does became a weirdo partisan issue but I do know that at some point Michelle Bachmann went on TV and and that it was like. Gonna meet government censorship and that the idea protecting net neutrality was with something that was going to lead -- the government being involved. In deciding. What content gets delivered and that is. Absolutely. 100%. Ball that is not true and in no way -- net neutrality ever be construed as. Any government having any control over content that gets delivered they are simply saying you can't charge people more. Or you can't throttle content that you don't like alcohol. That is all holidays it's not it's like them saying that your mom doesn't have to pay more to call you. Please please please. Its body. Write to these people were trying to just I don't know I don't understand it that they don't understand it or if they're just like people who loved crazy lie but those are creeping ice. Net neutrality has nothing to do government censorship. -- -- -- Thank you Monica. But that that's how -- it's getting up that's how did the kindness and that's what happens when like it becomes just a bizarre lobbying thing that that the telecoms are lobbying. That government and they're just trying to say like we have to do everything we can't stop -- -- we wanna be able to charge people as many times as possible -- delivering content and we wanna be -- I mean ultimately these other building their own content network they have a huge conflict of interest. Which is that they want to deliver you Internet video. And then ideally be able to charge like Hulu -- Google more -- make sure that their Internet video -- there and they wanna prioritize their own traffic earth. Like there it is not about and somehow they turn it into a political issue -- never should have been. It is a technological. And business issue and you and you see the headlines -- The government is instead making moves to control the Internet you know people automatically think the governments of all they see the more control. And they don't they don't think about oh they're trying to regulate how the Internet flow of data is going -- to say -- control we don't want that we're scared this is that and it becomes the whole thing. -- -- -- -- Wow it leaves no that's it's not. No one -- Absolutely yeah I really I don't you guys have bookend to -- I think we need a wash our hands and now. -- wash my hands how how about this -- it is is that Michael rates and since I can't believe no one said this yet. It is the turn on the alternate directions pretty I don't Alter them -- -- -- I realized Madonna theatres in 101000009 guys later on top dollar. -- -- there. Going to be outstanding proof right wow okay sorry -- on the -- -- great yeah. It's fantastic Leo. You -- that everyone here that on TV and like understand that that's what the yeah I may. This -- -- it does not have to be. A political issue and I am not necessarily trying to take one side -- the other I just know that one site at this point three net neutrality is crazy.
