Ep. 1462: May the Fourth Be With You Video Transcript
Today is Wednesday may fourth 2011 my name -- Stephen -- And I'm Brian Cooley hello. I'm Brad some -- -- not just internally today it is up to the 1462. In it. The house cnet's man of me now this is the problem to get the two of us in the room. Dogs -- ideally -- is just not it's just the man talent I'm not it doesn't it's it's not a stable Compaq you know that Netgear digital titled anatomy out man of media you like -- you hate that at international management. That's not we're now. No word at all and -- lays -- Molly Wood solemn occasion Bryant attorney with us now only got -- always a pleasure. It you know have a man who's guilty is even more of it were present the New York I just bought an -- cat -- -- I would never does. Which can be taken -- different way totally not right that I delete and edit it I haven't go to. -- equity you all you gotta and there are. The we're Herbert Greenberg -- -- -- it. -- -- -- Please let the -- -- -- you guys don't have the full frame needs he's gonna get the EU get the food into the van dyke. I -- the session the sidebar -- years ago why is that it on the Jawbone also yeah I was really competent was it was that was -- can preview release date and got little old. It goes a little via Google's. But pulled that off and attracting your target market -- -- you're. And I honestly I wanna look through the bosses don't knock it off that this is looking to -- Anderson -- -- get through your work those you can shape. -- and OK well we're gonna tell the stories and try to get through this show. And those -- but we we will but first up Sony more fallout from the whole Sony -- The house recently had actually it's -- just this morning. The house had a hearing on data that this morning to -- -- -- to ease where Sony. From their recent -- and apps one that -- -- marketing group that was also -- the about a month ago. Neither of them decided to show up so because this -- let's just say the representatives. Laid the smack of their twisted that they wanted to they -- and them to know how to feel Mary Bono Mary Bono Mack Republican for California. Chair the subcommittee on commerce. Throughout a few things that she was no fan of using a blog for public disclosure of the breached. So she asked yet for me -- single most important question is simply this why -- Sony's customers notified sooner of the cyber attack iPhone and ultimately believe all consumers have a right to know when -- personal information has not been compromised. And Sony as those other companies have an overriding responsibility -- them in Sony's case. The experts revealed about the data breach on their blog that's -- a blog I hate to pile on them but in essence Sony put the burden on consumers to search for information. That's another person yeah here's the thing -- coming off a little bit. A little bit not tech savvy because when you blog something you are just pulling the trigger immediately on as we know. The Twitter sphere via the FaceBook a sphere the rest of the Blogosphere you're basically a Prestowitz. She's making it seem like because obviously sees she's not using blogs much or her staff isn't or they would know these are like neural networks. I'm not -- there is a formal way to do this but the used to -- the press release I'm sure -- I don't know I guess they didn't put out a press restored the blog post but in this data age isn't a formal company blog post. As officials a press release. As utilitarian as a press release. I I think that maybe in May be in her mind does not on the old school address social ecology instead of leaking out of reasonable at first how about a formal email that actually apologize which Sony didn't necessarily -- -- -- up the -- -- they've got other issues of greater handling this is this also points to you how they've handled this so when you lead to that. Is it's not even. Necessarily. How to talk to people what it it it goes deeper into how. Culturally you know -- when -- when you have companies that are run overseas in Japan they operate differently from a cultural standpoint of -- they can't. I mean you get the story here they waited two days before they told law enforcement about this breach that was originally what the 77 million got -- reach it and it wasn't a small start now there's a -- -- was a 100000 and then it got bigger it started off big as we understand it. You -- you gotta make some phone calls when that happens and get some -- cover -- is good for -- is -- -- to have someone else in there with -- the FBI higher or whoever's of the US division based in San -- so yes they were called. US law enforcement. This all reminded me as we were chatting before the show get the show already it's -- this smacks of Toyota. As we covered to mitigate endlessly on a car tech podcasts on the things they got drawn on and brought called on the carpet forward. They didn't release enough fast enough openly enough to enough official parties that are involved you'll also -- -- they were of their holding back all the time a close in the -- -- -- You also have Sony who volunteered their second man in charge. Yeah the statement but I guess final boss the top dollar yacht the Sierra so you know -- right is very active in Sony dealing put up you know. Did the top of the top of the food -- didn't address it also yes sir stringer has not made a state -- -- -- in two weeks right and so are we gonna have you also have internally because we deal with Sony reps I have people that are. You know that I contact about the Sony PlayStation or that are their PR team yet -- -- they told me Sony. Corporate was holding all the information so tight to the chest that's gonna talk about overseas Japan's total credited -- they couldn't they -- even really make statements other than whatever was being released -- that on what -- -- when we heard from Toyota will trickling down individual custom. And Toyota that restructure their companies since the Toyota -- thing of last year were now the -- US division Toyota motor company of America has got. A a much more autonomous position they -- issue big statements now and just keep. Corporate in Japan in the -- Sony made may want to and may have to go the same way. Yeah it's -- it's definitely a different world in. Kind of trying to hide behind that -- -- -- isn't working its corporate cultural thing we're seeing with the major legacy Japanese companies -- -- -- -- a -- here it's -- -- -- it's two companies but -- It's -- it's not coincidence yet just -- -- also although they contacted. FBI officials two days it wasn't until five days later where they actually met with FBI officials to look into the breach yeah so -- -- Yes the you know they've they've. I think more than -- -- -- have a lot of companies -- dizziness everyone's gonna learn from what happened here. Let's face -- -- like this. It does paralyze a company that perhaps is not dealt with -- before I don't know all the majors Sony breach in the past. Ostrom of this scale has -- been there before you don't know what's gonna happen as you go into the breach so to speak but you gotta do it. I mean this is but when you when you're imagine you for sit there and you didn't you just -- seven you just allowed to breach of 77 million people. You know it's not gonna go well there's no good out of this for the time being you gotta go through -- to come out the other end so I can see where there's lots of folks -- each other Sony headquarters sales. -- -- you'd -- you know -- you -- before a strong policy in place that takes over the fear. So you'll we'll see how more there's I'm sure there'll be more information trickling out from there. But we're gonna move along to some cool news exciting news was modify. Still to -- you know spot -- not here in the US yet they're still working on the music deals to -- over in Europe spotted by is directly challenging iTunes. With their new music download store. And iPod -- -- and people like wal. How -- how they go about doing this well there's a few things that it's modify is doing a target can of this. New movement we -- they already have about approximately nine million users some of those are based on their ad model where you can stream. From their clicks for free but there's also subscription service allies view that. -- desktop application now has iPad iPod syncing or -- for the MP3 files and throw them -- two. Also it allows you people right well how does it. Does -- violate Apple's DRM. They're using it as a USB storage drive and accessing the music that way through their player OK you also for mobile phone users who aren't able to access spot buys. Service now free users can use the apps as well you won't be able to access streaming music where you can use the app. To talk to the spot a fight desktop tool to download and upload your music and the third part is making downloads available for people. You had no you have people who are streaming music -- for free right. But one of the pandora model yes one of the compelling reasons for them to try and push people. To -- the music is so that they can own it and -- it is leasing playlist instead of just you out I'm going to this cloud -- -- point. This predictive sort of service so they've -- -- pandora component of once they got a little bit of a bunch of their competitors in what they do a little bit of Amazon cloud player here as I understand it a little -- of pandora -- -- have flat -- -- from the what's the strongest thing -- -- -- -- you think it's going to -- -- a chance to really get some -- -- thing I did I got -- did you tell someone doesn't know about -- it does X would you -- I would say the most compelling thing about spot -- -- is a free. -- based subscription mile for music and that has access to the entire collection music and Democrats out there to -- More than anything that's the most compelling argument its iTunes about the price -- exactly but now that they're trying to put in hooks to be able to monetize this. They've renegotiating new licensing deals with -- -- some publishers to -- in cell and B three bundles. You know instead of individual tracks nearly had a problem -- they can only sell some tracks. From some albums they were priced individually can now buy purchase entire amp albums and bundles at a discounted rate kind of like iTunes -- -- all these hooks to. You know legitimize himself as a money making machine and monetize these nine million users. Yeah what's and considers -- interesting challenge of like you say still not US available yet but just that would be a big breakthrough when they can get there you know its commitment -- almost using the European market is there. As they're they're testing ground yet they Saturn rhapsody without the price tag. Write more aggressive breast that is a locker model about the price tag as opposed to store up Preston exactly yeah good good good -- Also if you guys are wondering what's going on what the iPhone the new iPhone five this is of course. Secondary information but it is gaining some steam AT&T -- heads to hold. A customer. I had written a customer AT and AT&T rep told a customer that there. Apple has told them of no new iPhone plans in June or July or July or July in the timeframe. They said the -- -- -- -- -- -- up plan to release the iPhone in the June to July tampering though there'll be a new version the future and a -- we have not been given release time for the new iPhone. We will release its information on our web -- when it's available also. If they were going to release a phone in June or July a lot of times the retail division. They have blackouts of when they can take vacation you know -- an iPhone by what you know about -- now you would hear about a blackout on on vacation time and it's. An odd time to do a major release of a -- they can refresh the iMac -- they did this week during the summer but -- just -- of the summer break now that's a weird time for retail -- -- Apple it's still a retail product when people are not their normal -- they may not buy. Until they get back from vacation. Those numbers matter -- Wall Street -- if they come in with them. A million fewer new iphones sold than the last refreshed before which Oracle one that came out in but I of the dual image and you -- -- -- -- -- -- eighty it was -- around union wasn't -- a year it's -- -- that's that's that's considered controversial -- in the retail space in most major products you don't release -- -- because you're gonna -- -- 61040% of people. Can't buy right away erratic town their out of the country they're traveling their busy right now -- vacation. So it's got a weird time to release a major -- And it more than aping Apple's not losing sales right now we know they don't they're not pressured to do district call for still selling totally straw obsolete -- anything iPad is the one able concerned about but even that's not major. -- there's that the -- I can tell you right now -- there's still people exit -- sixth Sony people -- waiting for that Apple Store for iPad every morning go by in the -- other -- yet I think most of their shortfall last quarter was because they couldn't make enough not because they couldn't sell and they did have some -- -- Also if you want -- talk about the additional AT&T news is the -- AT&T and T-Mobile deal. The Department of Justice has decided to pursue a more in depth in the investigation of AT&T'S plan. To buy -- T-Mobile Leo say thank goodness. This this is interesting does this now moves it from what was the optimistic view but an optimistic by AT&T was it would take a year to close this deal that was announced what in March. So -- to march of next year at the longtime. And then now it looks like it's gonna be definitely longer than that would be eighteen months pushing us almost a fall of next year. -- that's forever -- -- is I mean it's gonna be a long time either way we all say that it's probably going to happen yup. But in assessing -- more than likely illegals the department Justice Department. They can take a quick look at the deal approve it within thirty days in a process called in early termination or they can issue a so called second request. On indicating that an antitrust investigation likely to be prolonged. I think what's missing here is this answers the question we've had when we see new offers a new initiatives coming from T-Mobile stilts like. What are they doing -- they realize hey this deal may not go through obviously and be even bigger likelihood is -- -- may not go through. For a long time. That's the bigger likelihood is it does happen but takes a year and a half or perhaps more if we look at this story now. And even gonna consider renders wait for a year and half you know there are bonuses and promotions and raises being handed out the next year and a half a T-Mobile so people -- got their -- by running it like it's a business that's not being acquired by a parent. You also have on the from the consumer and this -- helical a lot of people are in their plans. They don't know if they really wanna stick with AT&T mobile or not if they don't know let. Really is going to happen the company -- we have the blast knows what phone tonight -- should I stick with parallels which violates. You can go right now buy a new phone it's gonna take all most of your two year commitment before this deals -- -- almost like it's not even an issue anymore good and something else for the next two years. And of of the time you come out of this current two year deal. They'll just be barely getting going on integration so you -- have missed -- -- There's not anything to act on in the next two years perhaps in that in a sense for the AT&T T-Mobile the mobile TT note -- mobile team -- -- -- team mode deal. Captured -- -- weird -- Russia and all right don't wave of genius. We're gonna take a little break only come back where there's still some more juicy information from the whole Osama bin Laden -- -- Lots computer data in the hands of US officials also Samsung's headquarters in US -- evacuated today. Followed with all that and more. Welcome back to buzz out loud -- frank -- in moose. With his nicely manicured -- one. Teach people how high that while. The clean -- Currently in the right president for adults of all cleaned today I had to notable -- -- right you brats are -- big audiences -- I came in showered today. -- of -- of -- the board's. Always do and as things are right -- come back the -- a solid in Laden's raid yields a trove of computer data. We heard about. Ambulance -- -- now seal team six right especially the writer of the book who co accidentally happen a write a book that's coming out in May. I genre it is nice timely right one of the seal team six is -- -- snipers and nice status out -- men. While that's guaranteed best seller done bone bank and IM serial -- determine of the guy who -- finished. Years he's been since 9/11 he's been analyzing 15100 audiotapes. Of Obama's though some as various messages as it happens as it happens all the time -- -- those those -- and -- too close to each other at this point history so he's been going over bin Laden's tapes and he just was about to publish the book and of course we whack the -- Quick -- right right I mean this could totally just changed your block. Wow so -- a lot of people were right in the breach on publishing a book around victors of this story. So of the assault force -- Navy SEALs they snatched computer drives and disks during -- we can raid on a some of the ones come -- compound thumb drives. Dvds and US officials. They -- they're obviously trying to find out if there's any TC did if there's even an inkling of information that it's. 5% of information on al-Qaeda that they did have. -- -- there's anything at all because this is that crazy safe house where they had no telephone wired or wireless no cell -- are allowed to be used inside and no Internet connections we couldn't track anything in and out of there. So what we do with computers which makes it -- -- -- that they had no Internet but really you. You makes you wonder it'll. What he was if you -- big secret they're storing a lot of original Internet burn to -- perhaps given to the -- career when it was a Madea's on the career -- it out so I guess they were doing sneaker -- in an of -- building. And the other side -- have nothing do with tech but I'm sorry why -- they keep describing this as a luxurious compound an exclusive neighborhood. This is adult. Pakistan that's a dump line I'm -- of the mainstream media is that sickened from. At least that's what I don't know if it's a -- it's all I've seen of all the different photos from every angle and videos have blood on my carpets and I. The name of what it was -- on the carpet that bedroom was like a crack house are you kidding me. A look during its exclusive compound has a limit managers who have come political he's been always been a crack house you can tell I've hey dude. -- scenes seem mime -- -- smoke and people it's like this is just that's not to of Palin -- not luxurious. What you think they have found on -- guys what does this -- existing. Bill Gross radio radio host was -- of this yesterday an arm and he was saying we found -- thing. Was it a total red Herring because oral or with the -- if we're saying we found something doesn't it mean that we know it's not valuable. Because if we did find something valuable we don't want even telegraph that we -- all those operatives out there us. But if we found something else like it's a bunch of crap it's a bunch -- nothing it's a -- a web browsing you know Lady Gaga photos on hard drives him. I wanna know what's on his iTunes playlist writes well on his way lives while it was on his playlist. And -- address is Google -- Because they had no Internet -- -- -- matter. And -- wanted to go to Google and iTunes playlist -- there aren't a beaver has beavers -- -- didn't have to -- and I think would have died the same. It does publicist playlist Sony lost his hearing by then right so it didn't really matter to him. Aren't. Anyways obviously we're making in light of the data but amazing mission critical yes there is so serious price and who knows it could be a serious true yet. In a -- picture that came out of the Obama. The Obama I guess you'd say -- missed the Obama -- mission the situation room photo -- and of you guys have seen this already yeah it's half way to becoming -- most. The viewed -- this is -- and this is like -- becoming one of the hottest pictures in Flickr history yes so currently at the moment. There's a snapshot. Of the no Cody guy falls locating in 2006. Its garnered are almost three million views of some waterfall via. Apple didn't desert the situation room right as there -- -- you know up to date Intel and you know reportedly a video stream of what was happening currently in 38 hours one and a half million views and. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Straight that's and then let's show the photo again and it's that picture we've all you need you could feel the intensity when. You look at that and -- -- could see like you know Obama's locked locked in. You always cancel their -- on the amount that's -- that forget that that's the best thing Hillary Hillary is the best one sees the great photo there. It's like -- her -- is all stretched it's just totally she's totally stressed. And you know you've got down -- -- -- -- -- -- -- over there which we to detail -- -- -- just -- it immediately the -- -- all they they said he was he was -- he had the I would -- his grandmother's rosary -- -- -- -- was going -- -- -- his -- trip he was on Obama's totally casualties came off the -- you know most of sloppy tennis track gently extract jacket -- is the only -- there is right browsers idealists the most deadly serious everybody's gonna attract -- most casualties in the room. And then we've got -- general chicken with its but right the general's second and I'd say he's up there -- -- -- he's just changing is open table Rezko for going to be here awhile sorry honey will have to move -- a little later and the much braver won. Is the woman in the very back its -- picking over a bit too and -- was to be in the room she's like god no classification but you snuck in behind the do in the blue shirt and -- trip and what's on the screen we could all be deathly mistakenly could be watching the -- for American Idol. It's a stock photo in leakage that we stock photo. The politically of course we haven't seen I don't think I haven't seen -- that is what they watch. That's from -- -- I -- all and a what -- even our ability to projected even if -- showed basically what can be on that screen that's the thing I wanna see what's. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So total ban helical also some of the fallout from the Osama bin Laden. -- raid in assassination. There we've been -- -- about how the unit terrorists or terror alerts are high because. After this you know there might be some you know. Retaliation or what else Samsung's US headquarters were evacuated today do you do -- for the -- it was earlier reported that authorities in Seoul Korea. -- also had their own threat. In that. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Decided to -- the plays and we actually even got like a little voice mail from one of our listeners to tackle this first children the middle is now. -- put out there. -- -- Your story. -- -- worked. Well. -- that he was actually in the New Jersey offices of Samsung North American headquarters and notably via. While so they did have an actual bomb threat -- citizen journalism at its finest. It we have we have our -- on the ground yours on the ground interest as the program hope that'll -- -- All right maybe not -- on the ground but i.s to your laptop PC the rental store furniture rental store aaron's. Is accused of using -- -- in key loggers on customers and this is how it came about. A couple crystal Bryan -- They were -- they had rented a Dell Inspiron laptop from -- adding -- mascot it's like friendly like cartoon dog if I recline. But that which they paid off in full in October 2010 you can read -- can read furniture and other items from them. One month ahead of schedule now -- data record the last payment correctly. Leading and -- store manager to show up at the bird home in December and in order to -- computer the store manager brought with him -- A photo of Bryan -- using the machine taken with the Inspiron a webcam as proof that they were still -- and whoops. -- I -- -- all the police there's an investigation and happened after. And -- aaron's cling to routinely install the PC rental agent which is an application allows you to remotely control. She -- customers activity. So they can keep a log of machine you -- they can also around the web cam and -- -- with -- remotely get those sent to NASA now now that's all -- all well. Now the -- issue -- -- to drop here I don't think it's in the story that average yet. Wasn't in the terms of service are the a contract. That says we can use whatever particular means yeah I get to and including. And remote software to their remotes -- -- verified behavior and capture certain assets from the machine blah blah blah you know phrased that way you might have where they have the right to do this even though it's gonna make you nuts. -- if there was something like that in their terms I would have imagined -- would have at least commented on they haven't. They have yet to -- you really think -- they lawyer -- sometimes it to say nothing for one my my my my other question is when it was taking the shots. One guess on a built in camera you don't have -- -- and and an indicator light so there's no way to know the cameras active Lego like unplugging came so that wouldn't help. The of the defeated that little light if there was a tally light -- -- even double sneaky but again. Yet this -- say in this homeowner who had this computer who's now flippant about that. I got a five year old boy runs around -- -- -- sometimes he jumps out of the -- and runs around the house win -- you taking pictures. How about my a white. Maybe she was walking by and I'll have addressed -- -- in the morning in January when your picture but that's not okay even in your terms if it's as I can use this technology. To maintain our asset. Not an every situation you -- we still have an expectation of privacy in our -- There's -- W neither statement on this yet and that they may not but this also reminds you a situation that happened last year. And I remember this lower Marion high school -- -- Lawrence school district that had laptops at homes and the staff or using the computers and taking pictures kind of refined. -- -- they -- they -- and -- of that. Now -- is gonna you are given real black activists I don't care what there terms say in the lease they have. This is -- this is not -- in other out of the home because once you get into someone's home. You have very -- a person who's not a celebrity. -- a very very high standard before you can invade their reasonable expectation of privacy it's the highest standard I can think it's like being in -- between -- At a public restroom -- a dressing room to store those of the three can't screw with -- and they are in one of those this is just there's no way to excuse this legal terms or not. -- rules will definitely has some sort of settlement the lower Marion school district had at and upsetting to settling to -- lawsuits for total. A 6101000. Dollars so we'll probably see something I really don't cheat on there in -- -- Also mum in acquisitions that might surprise you Warner Bros. home entertainment. Has purchased flexed her and raw tomatoes this ones all over Twitter if you haven't heard already if any of you guys use and love -- -- like idea. Awesome mobile Latin easily find out reviews information local movies it's just like clean interface PS also tied to run tomatoes reviews. And I don't know how many people don't -- -- around tomatoes and some people might -- lot of but our Warner Bros. now has acquired them in and inching strategy because Warner Bros. Was also one -- the first deals or not the first -- to pump out movies on FaceBook. Let's trial run with the Dark Knight that's -- -- going to add more movies. Now they've acquired flicks -- which does have pretty strong brand name in the mobile space they have of over 35 million downloads of -- app on Iowa and Andrew the real numbers also run tomatoes gets a privately twelve million. Visitors so these are two brands. That people. Have looked at and definitely shall leave it. Assessment -- have solid traffic -- assisting -- media companies are getting. Involved are acquiring are operating well established. What aggregation and metadata companies and and we just -- clicker recently. These guys are getting -- there it's -- companies -- got assets need to also -- that up with discovery and recommendation wanna put that altogether. And so companies have a lot of stuff they wanna get discover and recommend that are out buying platforms that can do that the question is. How independent do you leave the -- -- For example in this case with a -- or whatever the service is a via a media company acquires in this case the memo coming from the bosses at Lichter says. We're gonna remain independent we're not gonna to suddenly start skewing all Warner's you know and print surface all that -- you pay its day one you can always say that they want. Let's see what happens after -- actually comes in and starts to around the place. Yeah yeah and initially node in there in the you know the worry is that a cable cut. I wonder -- if if -- Warner Bros. movies we'll have the highest reviews on rotten tomato conflicts are now in their right that's the -- -- clearly -- regularly independent via in their press release for the acquisition when this -- seen one interest he noted that under the terms of deal flexible continue to operate independently likely said. But also expand its services beyond movie discovery. To enable digital content ownership and delivery across any connected to to the -- -- which alludes to Warner Bros. Pushing not only digital content further but treating some sort of cloud doing their own class -- service that you might see on TV -- -- mobile device in everyone's. And how this goes a little need because we all know it. Need a separate cloud service from every asset and just that's worse yet just for Warner -- I don't wanna go Warner Bros. to get their stuff because first of all consumers don't think that -- I don't have. I've almost no idea. What Warner that's what movie is meant I couldn't care less that that's going back to the old school I had to care what network carries a shelf I don't care don't want -- I just wanna go watch. X -- of the show is I don't wanna we're about Hooper who shot and produced -- who as a distribution rights do as a syndication rights which are different. Whether it's in syndication now there's a block on it is it in currencies in her that in reruns Altec crap we've had to go into the the last -- years -- -- -- -- -- -- might -- -- all -- and angry in different places. So I gather -- -- Warner Bros. acquire Netflix -- hopefully things will change too much for products we're gonna go to upload a quick hits now -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- She -- Nintendo dropped the price to 149. Dollars and we'll also be including -- Mario game in the bundle. We're expecting the new Wii announcement at. -- you'll be there I'll believe all the way there yeah you'll be you'll be releasing in the corner playing video out over -- see -- -- -- that. There's a little like getting one of those trailers an attack on appearing on the -- -- you got on the road has now what are what do we used to cost. It originally -- -- modify or call I actually -- if -- call when it first in it was around to putting -- 29 to forty little drop down a 179. Are now is supporting its accompanist are dramatic cut. In its its good and of I see here that Wii Sports is no longer bundled with the new low price point is that. Correct -- it looks like they're throwing in the Mario game like instead Mario Kart. And Wii Sports -- have to be something you buys separately. -- which is not what sort of that is like an opera don't collect an operating system built in -- -- -- expects Wii Sports to be on a -- at -- it's on. It's so saturated now -- everyone that had a we've for the most part of -- Wii has a week. Yeah exactly so it's kind of blown out. On the Internet also on -- in cool content. -- content that's come and you pandora's delivery and comedy channels. With in the pandora stations. They announce the launch of -- stations -- and just with as with music streaming. He -- -- -- tracks stick to those they don't like it a thumbs up or thumbs down to personalize what they hear. They won't. Feature you know the same. Variety your breath of continent available to music people that's kind of hard to do but they did say they can have people create stations based on a specific meeting energy -- Such as its interest there were -- now comedy is always a hard line. Company's -- because people view that very differently you can't list that you can't sort it by BP hammer instrumentation area are composer or anything it's a whole different animal run seen on Iran's proxy on -- this does is can be called look at the satellite radio channels are either totally -- -- -- -- When they're totally stupid is like -- I don't think there's a middle ground of Warsaw when -- is kind of in the middle little edgy. But not like -- this might be -- way to get there and. Some another reason why we love pandora follow along as they don't give up our location information and -- for laughs. Also local content coming American Airlines will soon be streaming video. -- mobile device the choice. They're going to be doing this over a Wi-Fi service on their planes to deliver the content directly. And your mobile device like your iPad to your Motorola zoom and you will have the ability to purchase -- movie. One at TV episode one question is. You tech savvy people even do this when melody written episodes themselves but there's a huge with tablets becoming a more more mainstream device there's a -- there's a -- I would of this. I would do this because when I'm on the road and I'm trying to fill up my iPad the hotel connections always -- woefully slow Sabrina takes overnight I get about 90% and I -- run the airport so I get nothing yet I hate that. That's what we don't know yet I don't think from this is this is going to be browser based or app based Yahoo! that we don't know that yet. So -- -- -- player app suddenly then they better do a good job in the software or this sucks -- -- if it's web based it might be a little more neutral and -- a better chance of working well but I bet it's gonna be app based. -- pricing hasn't been announced this is service costing five dollars for movie one to three dollar expert to -- in journalism -- adolescents yet this actually does make sense because yet. Filling up your iPad on the road it's too fraught ashes. It sucks is that I -- I know exactly time -- trying to get a movie. -- what airport I don't I don't -- -- -- bad CIA takes ten hours to get hi Def movie on your right and even a standard -- it's like six for a four by six hours sometimes hours at the -- -- -- need time to think about this I'm not planning my movies that much -- -- All right we're gonna go jump over to the -- gadget goodness. The -- all you cooling VS. Like the student's story today so I guess they can sell I get -- -- I'm reading about this thing the world's smallest atomic clock. -- my mind I'm -- a clock that you can actually read the time on the ties into one of those atomic time servers the navy runs or something. I had it all -- It's and edit -- it might cost like you know something affordable to be a hundred bucks or less considering it's the smallest -- -- of the about it's actually a component it's a module. But you see here from a company called symmetric com it's an atomic clock of me understand this right -- actually keeps time by measuring the decay of atomic material. That is inside the thing so it's not picking up those radio signal that's good of those radio signal clocks. Often can't get -- signal and apparently it's a hundred times smaller than any previous atomic clock so you wanna really super. Accurate atomic clock module for a project you're working on this is it it's about 15100 dollars apparently is a price break. For the rest of us who are doing expensive home electronic projects this is irrelevant. It's cool for much of industries does not some but that was a clock Reno pre built a finished good it's a component. So they say this component also continues to function would GPS signals are blocked. On makes it incredibly useful for deep underground or underwater use it also prove -- -- Andy. For blocking telephone signals from detonated explosive devices because -- -- -- -- it interference yet the actual -- that a cesium of the size of a grain of rice and that's -- gives off the radioactive stuff but they say. It's not gonna give you any kind of radioactive -- -- small amount of radioactive material anyway. You violent that the geeky as components for we've ever done about excellence nice -- -- -- RadioShack on a Saturday political scene North -- mainstream. But I'm not gonna look like like Pasadena this weekend are you kidding me do that not a -- used -- -- carry as -- on and you'll first register -- where they were doing this this is is this 3-D e-business apps and I -- debated every time -- come on the show every time I get -- with the space story. I what's this one here DARPA is gonna build a futuristic space exploration. -- that are rather they're gonna -- -- issued a call now for industry proposals this is very early stuff. On how to build the 100 year starship project. I read this and I immediately was happy because I won't be here -- a hundred years so one safe. I want to deal was -- -- -- to -- your project is more about building a spacecraft. Is more about it is about more than building a spacecraft genuine technology but the whole idea of getting all the disciplines together from. Biochemistry math biology physiology. So so social logical political all the sciences together into the way into the all the all the disciplines of how do we live out of the US out of the global area. In outer space for a really long time -- large numbers of people. And I still don't care next story. You know we we might be I'm gonna preserve your body just so that we can bring you back now don't seeded south the first -- is one thing I don't do well when it -- -- come out of the liquid hydrogen is -- karate kick you. Time. And are right analyst -- are happy any. There you go today for all of you that do not know and I really help you know by now yeah today is national. Star Wars day I didn't know until you gave me a pretty obvious clue. And a clue. Is that brands. The -- and it's -- -- head Bryan whom it's working. Look like -- -- instrument -- Sticks more than you wanna go. And they get enough. Our -- today's national settlers day alone -- lets borrowers -- you help us out in this whole. Endeavor is on their website they have this huge countdown to release the of their Blu-ray which will be coming out we we've heard it was coming out sometime around September. What is it September the twelfth it'll be rolling out internationally September the sixteenth -- coming out to North America. And outlets really annoying and but -- -- -- the same time -- visit there -- are -- website it's may the fourth. Dot Star Wars dot com you can check out you can if you like or send to the website your social networks and -- it there's this meter. That's as like something like 49% filled the on the more people that share the reveal more of the splash video. Owner all the stats for all the different countries that have that if chimed in on FaceBook YouTube or Twitter whose leader who's the -- -- Australians are coo -- for Star Wars went back. -- who leads the way Star Wars the most Spain Spain eight Star Wars -- That they -- like this the gotta say number I -- to load the video it takes ever ever ever and that it's just like file art from you know like. The art book that you buy. Ten years ago yeah like a behind the scenes green screen shot of -- ball fantastic and it's bull. Before it shows that 49% it's at if you. So can you clear my only I started loading it. Now out of the low teens this could take forever what does that loading it loads just a huge flash video of it are it's not -- -- cool it's -- the biggest it's the biggest flash insert downloading bin web history -- exits -- huge. But you know everybody wants to check it out -- Globally 81%. Write like you said so words what -- we're gonna waste ago. But like I said before -- -- just an hour ago is at 49 -- -- was. A for the completions movement facts. Us millions in Mozilla I'm also looking at the load of my flat -- loaded up classes take you forever but -- completion to reveal reveal all of everything okay while this is so complicated. This is like the promotion from hell click close tab. Next. Decode the website did crash when it announced it okay and in our final. Our final champion -- is this one is for you this is great Frankel -- Paint for -- it protects greatest app in iPad history. If you haven't heard about this it's one of those this has been everywhere the last 24 hours so you get this that you put on your iPad deceit or watching a video version its got a little rainbow. Colored mouse that runs around squeaks -- tracks your cat to swap them out but that's what cats do. The mouse the perfect meal a perfect balance -- that a fact. Protein moisture and carbohydrate. It's serious -- serious and only you only you would know every facet on the market seeks to emulate the balance of amounts only you would know that this same little tidbit that's a free service and as the cats wants the mouse it paints. You know virtually paints on the screen I guess he can then do you have a wireless printing needs but you'll -- are very. You gonna frame it and -- and its your friend does one do myself download and I know you do the general store had only painting ability believe me. You know this this is unprecedented arrivals -- my two year old -- -- I'm not gonna lie it's not bad it's not that it's not at all to take it out I'd -- it was -- -- for campaign for cats. I love it. There's an app for that our audits let's let's again -- -- -- What was not assault the apartments are -- -- -- up. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- All right I'll by the way Arens is got a picture you do in the hackers are monitoring your computer you -- -- Jesus sent the RI public computing agency veteran to all of this -- -- -- Tests at the cost savings strategy. -- -- get bigger picture of me now are asked right there in efforts probably in our first deployment of voice -- we have one of our callers he says. HBO go. May be a no go. It goes through you get to talk about -- you'll go yesterday -- because he was like the outcomes. That -- Off the iPad HDMI so. Pastrana com and pot and alcohol. He now about the in the lights and you put myself and -- -- the line -- not dongle. Plugged it in. Just HBO go logo on -- community. Then. -- -- So van -- back. He currently can't export video to another device. When using the iPad app so. That they get that together but for now. Just in the universe a lot going -- could work. First and all you want the best Barry White person nation's history. Family Guy -- Motorola for a -- -- wanted to MacDonald moment dongle slap on the thing blow yeah. -- -- slap that it is hand. Okay. The thing about as when he said. You can't help but be like maybe that's maybe not but maybe doesn't iPad one -- I was -- but it's not. There's no but there's no HDMI. Output path on that he has to be using it to. But the two promises that agreement goes -- the -- -- the little things -- here he -- is doesn't know he's not on HDMI and VG yet but he said he is -- in China but -- can't be there's no -- did not -- it's demise -- actually which would lead us to believe that the app. Has deliberately crippled. Video Al. From the HD look like this to me when Apple says that iPad two which is based on IOS four got three was only the key there'd does mirroring of all video -- -- of all video. Pending permission from the app was still BS potentially because the other the -- dot iPad one was that way it mirrors. Some stuff pending permission of the ad does little desktop iPad one would only mere video that you were setting out to at least -- he likened navigate the entire -- -- interface was great teaching but in terms of getting. All your media out to a television iPad two may not be any better than one depending on the app you -- -- yet that's a week that's real we also it's more than anything it's a week from HBO standpoint as you already subscribed to HBO -- your watching it on a big screen I suspect the reason -- their. Blocking this. Guessing here is because they are concerned about what this does for the residuals. Of these shows because a lot of the companies that produce and on the rights to these license and HBO they can get ratings from HBO because that's a well known track -- thing. They always have for decades in -- how to deal with that. Which they can then -- in to elevate the payments for syndication later it's all part of this whole trickle down thing. But anything you watch on a tablet it's still -- and measurable. Even if it's through an app like this it's just it's in it's it's the wild west I got -- -- that's the reason they're doing out of the that the bug I think it's HBO saying yet. We don't know how many people are gonna be watching on this sword is gonna limited just to tablets. To basically limit the limit the appeal yeah I didn't -- too popular too fast. I was thinking what T -- -- -- -- in the chat room that. Maybe if they don't want people although yard HBO go user to go over your buddy's house and then put it on their on their TV who doesn't even have HBO. -- because they are opening up to a possibility of you use more times and -- places in front of more people out there for scrubbing off more on measurable and view it viewing and therefore hurting residuals for syndicate and therefore also potentially. For many people who actually found an interesting thing about your content program to go by and purchase each -- right now which says Internet law limits the ability to -- -- -- it doesn't make sense I mean I know why they're doing. I mean I have yet seen the wire. Which is touted as one of the most -- TV shows delta two Wednesday it and it would be if someone and say that again I don't know and of HB no not gonna yet. Okay I am not even -- -- -- in the same way right there okay. On the emails it's so -- we got a couple actually more than a couple emails about some solutions. For people using credit cards and online some inevitably -- lottery don't take the first one. Hey let's do this on comes from Daniel Colorado I was missing the on musing on possible solutions -- the problem having credit card stolen and data breaches. I realize I have a solution for several years now I've been using -- discover card for any only -- because discover has a free feature. And allows you to create a single use credit card number when log into your online account -- These numbers will work. Will only work at the first merchant they're used for meaning I can create a single user credit card number four single -- single use credit card number for service like PS and and if PS and somehow gets hacked and number stolen there's almost no risk to me because several -- any use of that number at any non PS and merchants. Additionally you can have a certain number of active single use numbers any one time so if you really paranoid just spent a few minutes after a data breach treating new single user numbers for your online accounts. PSN and Amazon etc. And your stolen single use credit card numbers completely useless to hackers -- hopefully more credit card companies will be I in this feature and people use it. As a frequency of this sort of data breach grows love the show. Happy Star Wars day may the fourth. I didn't know about this bad debt yet this just didn't you get recently. Kind of like one term one time passwords been differently than they don't expire right away but they are for one merchant like -- cards -- -- your card you wanted but they live on continuously and you cancel them but it allows you not to go through all that pain of having to cancel your entire credit card account. Have an idea contact all those merchants you've got -- on file with Amazon and iTunes and all those guys and all that updating you just kill off one leg of it that's kind of cool enough but that. It's just such as you want to promote public -- we got -- -- of these guys -- -- -- just asking a wireless of the podcast today. And you mentioned you wish there was a credit card you could use for recurring payments. Bank of -- product called shops safe credit card lets you instantly generate -- random credit card with a user configurable date up to one year. Seeking use and random credit card for one -- or up to a year on a recurring like PlayStation network. It does on Etsy shops -- card does have a default -- particular in my pocket book as it does have a real one. So another example of that same idea you can generate these on the fly per merchant and in this case at least you can make it short term as well. And do it easily I assume on the web and on call because that's like death yeah that's sooner forget -- -- -- -- -- card ripped off and -- those operators. But thank you buzz town abuzz nation for -- getting back to us on the that's that's really give me an idea -- -- -- I'm sure a lot of -- now we're really sure about that either so now that is why we love you guys know all you are the fourth. It brain third brain. Actually yeah I'm sure you're going to -- -- service for a second under the brand and that it is supplying us with more information like the fourth little but a core I. This email coming from Jack W a smaller it's the other night I had a dream that my friend was asking me if it was okay and -- copy music from his computer to his phone. Just as I was about to -- that it should be okay a group of representatives from Sony drove up to us and armored -- plain machine guns at us. What's does this say about the music industry why is Sony trying to insult my dreams and should I sit there this. No you actually from a using a computer rented from -- You're -- they're able to insert things in your dreams -- -- take pictures of you having a nightmare you probably also abusing mind boggling drugs that's will be the main thing you should talk to the guy from the voicemail. Who sits down with a dongle of a glass of wine. Some were there. I'm just say someone in there there's a little and we'll see anybody go in there somewhere. Optic now throwing that out.
