Pre-show: John explains Nirvana

⏹️ ▶️ John it’s the special episode time i was doing a special episode of what was

⏹️ ▶️ John the topic i don’t know what the hell is the topic ever on that show your libido

⏹️ ▶️ John mosquito

⏹️ ▶️ Casey your libido uhm

⏹️ ▶️ John yeah that was a smells like teen spirit for those keeping track

⏹️ ▶️ John smells latin spirit was a band no it was what was a song by the band

⏹️ ▶️ John nirvana i

⏹️ ▶️ Casey am aware

⏹️ ▶️ John of the song yeah and in that song there were lyrics that rhymed a lot and i said one of

⏹️ ▶️ John them and that was a reference

⏹️ ▶️ Marco john is explaining nirvana to us i

⏹️ ▶️ John made the reference you had no reaction then i explain what the reference came from still no reactions i feel like i have go

⏹️ ▶️ John deeper i didn’t think it was funny enough to react to music is like a series of sounds that

⏹️ ▶️ John people find

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey pleasant this is how

⏹️ ▶️ Casey this is going to go is this how it’s go start

Twitter quality filter for all

⏹️ ▶️ Marco ah it is august we just recorded a show two days ago and we’re recording again due to

⏹️ ▶️ Marco this time as my vacation schedule for once nothing really has happened i mean some

⏹️ ▶️ Marco some things have happened like in the world but nothing really has happened in tech with the exception

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that we have some twitter update that’s kind of interesting but other than that what else is going

⏹️ ▶️ Marco on

⏹️ ▶️ Casey can we can we dig a little deeper in this vacation thing you speak of how do you know whether or not you’re

⏹️ ▶️ Casey on vacation just whether or not you wake up in your own bed

⏹️ ▶️ Marco oh wow yeah

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Casey see that is how

⏹️ ▶️ Casey this episode is going to be

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that yeah yeah so

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Casey let me

⏹️ ▶️ Marco rephrase by saying i’ll be out of town

⏹️ ▶️ Casey well done sir so

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John guess i’ll

⏹️ ▶️ John, Marco be out of town next

⏹️ ▶️ John are you taking out cause that’s how you can tell right

⏹️ ▶️ John, Marco actually that’s true and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the whole family is going including out of

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Casey hope oh

⏹️ ▶️ Casey and hops oh it’s just an hops

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, Marco yeah

⏹️ ▶️ Casey all kitty so willing to share where you’re going would you rather keep that close to the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco best we’re goin to the beach for you know just like what everyone else does you and we figure it’s not hot enough here we

⏹️ ▶️ Marco need to go somewhere a little bit hotter

⏹️ ▶️ Casey i can tell you all about hot these days actually today wasn’t terrible it was only about ninety ninety five and i don’t know what that

⏹️ ▶️ Casey is in celsius because i believe in units it makes sense anyway we should probably start with some follow up now that i’ve given

⏹️ ▶️ Casey everyone at least a little bit of grief marco had just dropped a hint a second ago twitter

⏹️ ▶️ Casey has enabled the quality filter for everyone and as far as we can tell it’s the

⏹️ ▶️ Casey same quality filter that verified users get but i don’t think mark when i noticed

⏹️ ▶️ Casey this but we have just confirmed it i think john is the one that noticed this it is on by default

⏹️ ▶️ Casey which is super interesting and not the case for verified users so verified users who

⏹️ ▶️ Casey have not turned this on they wouldn’t have the on and and marco looked

⏹️ ▶️ Casey at the overcast account which is verified and and your quality filter is not on is that correct

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah basically like if if you if you had the setting before it will keep your

⏹️ ▶️ Marco setting even if you never touched it so it’s not like a like a triple state like you know one zero or no kind of thing

⏹️ ▶️ Marco where like no would just be the default it’s not that it’s actually like if you had it before and you didn’t

⏹️ ▶️ Marco say it you have it off now and it doesn’t really matter anyway so this is great news because

⏹️ ▶️ Marco this is exactly what we were complaining about last episode and last time we talked about this also why

⏹️ ▶️ Marco wouldn’t you have this available for everybody and last episode i even said like you know i’d

⏹️ ▶️ Marco even go as far as to say that this should be on by default and when i was saying that i had

⏹️ ▶️ Marco no hope that they would actually ever do this both making the making the feature

⏹️ ▶️ Marco available for everybody and also making it on by default either of those things would have shocked me so to have

⏹️ ▶️ Marco them both happen and to both happen very quickly it’s a pretty major step and first

⏹️ ▶️ Marco of all it’s a little bit of a slap in the face that like apparently there was no reason really why they

⏹️ ▶️ Marco couldn’t have done it for everybody already let’s you know

⏹️ ▶️ Marco set that aside for now we have it now so you know positive thoughts we have it now this is very good

⏹️ ▶️ Marco this is way better than i expected this is a sign that maybe maybe twitter is starting to

⏹️ ▶️ Marco take their abuse problems and their trolling problems and their just general jerkins problems

⏹️ ▶️ Marco maybe they’re starting to take that a little more seriously and you know honestly maybe not this could

⏹️ ▶️ Marco be just like an easy quick fix they just threw out there because they had it ready but even doing this

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is a big step and if it bodes well for for future steps in this direction and additional

⏹️ ▶️ Marco steps in this direction that’s good too so i i’m hopeful about it i’m kind of i’m

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a little bit reserved in that but i’m hopeful that twitter is starting to really care about this problem

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and and take steps to to improve their service for everybody and not just celebrities

⏹️ ▶️ Casey yep john your thoughts

⏹️ ▶️ John the verified thing is still out there like the idea that if you have an account that frequently people are impersonating

⏹️ ▶️ John you and stirring things up by tweeting things that pretend to be you that people then reach wheat and screenshot

⏹️ ▶️ John and think you said and come back you know like the whole the idea of verifying that yes this is

⏹️ ▶️ John i am really the person with this name and in this you know picture and this all these

⏹️ ▶️ John attributes that should still be open even though the quality filter is open to everybody so there’s

⏹️ ▶️ John still a ways to go that and like the quality filter it’s the type of thing where they totally could like it already

⏹️ ▶️ John the future already exists in some ways it’s easier to enable for everybody’s in some ways it’s harder because there is

⏹️ ▶️ John that human component of verifying your identity or whatever and as we said in the past you know find charge

⏹️ ▶️ John money for it or something like that but it verification continues to be the

⏹️ ▶️ John appstore of twitter where rejections don’t make any sense and no one can figure it out and it’s

⏹️ ▶️ John all mysterious like what recently the at pfm account got rejected for verification

⏹️ ▶️ John and i saw a couple other puzzling rejections but on the other hand people all the people are getting verified so

⏹️ ▶️ John if no one knows how it works um anyway that’s i guess that’s the next stepping stone and easy things twitter could

⏹️ ▶️ John have done a long time ago but didn’t

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah and also you know to give them credit also you know the whole verified

⏹️ ▶️ Marco status is problematic as we’ve discussed before and you know one of my core arguments about

⏹️ ▶️ Marco verified being a problem was you know it was it was more ok when it was only

⏹️ ▶️ Marco about identity verification and it starts becoming increasingly problematic

⏹️ ▶️ Marco as features or status are tied to it and so what they’ve done here is

⏹️ ▶️ Marco they’ve just removed a major feature that was exclusive to verified people before and they made

⏹️ ▶️ Marco available for everybody so it has it has taken a big chunk out of the out of the problem the problems are still there

⏹️ ▶️ Marco there are still lots of other problems with verified that as being what it is and bringing what it does and having

⏹️ ▶️ Marco this weird inconsistent you know subjective review process but removing a major

⏹️ ▶️ Marco feature of it as an exclusive and making it available to everybody is a big step in the right direction

⏹️ ▶️ Casey that sounds excellent

John bought a camera

⏹️ ▶️ Casey ah john you are poorer in the last few days than you were

⏹️ ▶️ Casey the a few days prior would you like to tell us about that

⏹️ ▶️ John yeah i finally bought a camera and now we

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey had some discussions about it on past

⏹️ ▶️ John shows no big surprise about the camera that we that we were talking about the camera that i had tested for

⏹️ ▶️ John a week the camera was pretty much a no brainer for me you know because like and as many

⏹️ ▶️ John people as soon as i mention camera the camera people wrote and tell me all the differences that they like and i was good to hear different people

⏹️ ▶️ John stories but what they liked about their camera some people trying to sell a microporous some people trying to sell me on the

⏹️ ▶️ John aps c fuji’s and you know the availability of lenses and how cheap they are and how good quality

⏹️ ▶️ John they are and there’s lots of different arguments on all sides but the you know the sony

⏹️ ▶️ John is the is the devil i know sort of and it has several attributes that are really like specifically in terms

⏹️ ▶️ John of first photos for action shots and how good it is at finding focus very quickly we

⏹️ ▶️ Marco should point out once again you have again failed to mention the model number it is the sony a sixty three hundred right

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i mentioned that

⏹️ ▶️ John before yes sixty

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey three hundred

⏹️ ▶️ Casey on this episode i was sitting here waiting to add it to the show

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John house

⏹️ ▶️ Casey waiting and waiting and waiting

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John and we already

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey know it

⏹️ ▶️ John already and the small size because a lot of the other aps c cameras are like oh it’s also an aps c but

⏹️ ▶️ John the sony’s are really very small and that that that counts for how i want to use it as is not quite ready to

⏹️ ▶️ John sign up for the big giant camera the sony lenses are the situation is not as great as other cameras i acknowledge

⏹️ ▶️ John that and so that was my most difficult part i knew i was going to get the body i got the body without any lenses i knew i didn’t want the kit

⏹️ ▶️ John lens because i had it and it’s not great and so i had to decide what i was going to get the easiest and the first

⏹️ ▶️ John lens purchase i i got was the fifty millimeter one point

⏹️ ▶️ John eight that sony sells because i had rented that i’d used it i’d usually take pictures of people’s face people’s faces

⏹️ ▶️ John indoors with low light and i’ve gotten a lot of good pictures out of it and i really liked it and yet as many people point out fifty

⏹️ ▶️ John million years is a little bit close yet to back up a lot to get people framed the right way in

⏹️ ▶️ John indoor environment but that’s somewhat problematic but the thing is two

⏹️ ▶️ John parts of this one the sony thirty five and the other thirty five i saw were all not as good lenses

⏹️ ▶️ John as the fifty in terms of optical quality and you know if it has a stabilization in all these

⏹️ ▶️ John other things so the fifty was the you know they were not as good lenses and they cost a similar amount so you know to pay three hundred

⏹️ ▶️ John fifty dollars for a worse thirty five millimeter i’d rather spend the hundred fifty dollars on a better fifty and the second part

⏹️ ▶️ John is i like to take candid shots i don’t like post shots that much and having a little bit of extra some

⏹️ ▶️ John even indoors let’s you get a nice good head and shoulders portrait of someone

⏹️ ▶️ John you know laughing in a natural way when they don’t know you taking a picture if you’re not right in their face so i

⏹️ ▶️ John like the fifty even if it is slightly challenging in some situations and and we like the pictures that

⏹️ ▶️ John come out of it and then the next one i got and i waffled in summer a long time but i eventually pulled the

⏹️ ▶️ John trigger is the really flat twenty millimetre pancake lens nice

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment which

⏹️ ▶️ John is not a not a great lens and it’s pretty expensive for what you get but in the end i had to say

⏹️ ▶️ John look you can’t argue with the the size it makes the camera much smaller much lighter and

⏹️ ▶️ John it’s not a bad lens it’s just it’s not probably worth the money i paid for it but i got that and i also got a bunch

⏹️ ▶️ John of lens protectors which is not a thing that i had thought about before but i read a couple of articles and like oh you should always get a lens protector

⏹️ ▶️ John like you know what it is easier to clean the lens protector that is to clean the lands i imagine there if there’s dirt on lens protected

⏹️ ▶️ John it’s worse than if there’s daring land so maybe i’ll come to regret this but they’re cheap side bottom and

⏹️ ▶️ John i’m going to give that a go and i’ve been taking pictures just find trying to find excuses to take pictures with the stuff around

⏹️ ▶️ John the house and everything um i’ve been playing with the autofocus on this do you have

⏹️ ▶️ John that assigned to one of the buttons on your camera mark

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i have not assigned to a button my camera does have the eye focus i tried it for a few days up front

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that i ended up turning it off because sometimes like you know like most autofocus

⏹️ ▶️ Marco systems if you’re holding the shutter you know the trigger button down and it doesn’t have

⏹️ ▶️ Marco focus it’ll wait until it does have focus before it shoots the picture and there were a couple of instances

⏹️ ▶️ Marco where i missed a shot that i could have gotten because it had focused

⏹️ ▶️ Marco distance wise but it had not found the eye in time and it was just like a second too late finding

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the eye and that that like made mister shot so i turned it off and i haven’t experimented with it since then

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that was a long time ago and there have been a number of firmer updates since then so maybe i should try it

⏹️ ▶️ John so the mine and probably yours as well as you can adjust that of like what has priority should i take

⏹️ ▶️ John the picture when you push the button or should i not take the picture until you have focus and there’s like three or four settings in that range

⏹️ ▶️ John the extremes of the range or luck when i press the button take the picture regress of whether our focus and the other extreme is never

⏹️ ▶️ John take the picture till you are focus and the other thing with iota focus it’s weird on this camera because there’s it’s not assigned

⏹️ ▶️ John to anything by default you wouldn’t even know the future existed unless you accustom assigned it to a button and i assigned it to a button

⏹️ ▶️ John and you have to hold down so i’m half holding the shutter and then my thumb is pressing the iodo focus and

⏹️ ▶️ John if it doesn’t find an eye just like going go back to regular you know portrait thing you can tell the green circles on their

⏹️ ▶️ John face it’s like i found a face i’m going to take a picture of it but if i push down the

⏹️ ▶️ John little ought to focus thing if it doesn’t mediate find an eye then i’m like all right well forget about that but if it does immediatly find

⏹️ ▶️ John an eye and i keep that held down it will track the eyeball as the person moves is pretty amazing um and the other feature

⏹️ ▶️ John of the camera i find hilarious again yours probably hunted to is a facial

⏹️ ▶️ John recognition and ranking so you take small pictures of everyone in your family like their face looking

⏹️ ▶️ John at the camera and the camera remembers them and if you all three of them are in the frame it will prioritize

⏹️ ▶️ John them in the order that you select of who’s going to be in focus wow it’s pretty grim when you think about it it’s

⏹️ ▶️ John like sorry sorry second child you’re not as important as you have to pick in water right but if you think about it

⏹️ ▶️ John it’s actually you shouldn’t think about it in terms of take a picture of your family think about it like taking a picture of like you go on

⏹️ ▶️ John a trip to new york city you want to take a picture of your kid in new york city street it won’t accidentally grab focus on a stranger

⏹️ ▶️ John who’s walking by right it will always prioritize your kid looking at you and never accidentally grab

⏹️ ▶️ John focus on someone else so lots of cool software based features that are all really fast and really

⏹️ ▶️ John good is probably why this thing eats battery um and so yeah i really do i really am

⏹️ ▶️ John happy with the the body of the camera where the lens situations little grim probably going to rent

⏹️ ▶️ John a zoom for my wife’s vacation and if we like it we’ll probably buy it but

⏹️ ▶️ John no zooms out there are calling out to me in terms of price performance i think what i end up with

⏹️ ▶️ John is a way too expensive like that uh that seventeen or whatever it is seventeen seventy

⏹️ ▶️ John a thing that’s not a great lens but it’s very compact and very versatile

⏹️ ▶️ John and then maybe something with like a three hundred millimeter range that’s just actually a crappy camera but gives the maximum

⏹️ ▶️ John range on it i don’t know anyway i think i’ve bought enough camera crap for a while so it’s all

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment here on my and

⏹️ ▶️ John i’ve taken pictures of mostly taking pictures of my family playing pokemon go as that’s what they do when we’re all home as they

⏹️ ▶️ John go out for a walk and capture pokemon and taking pictures in the supermarket and

⏹️ ▶️ John generally being annoying to all my kids and just trying out the camera but that’s fun i’m happy with it and like i

⏹️ ▶️ John said in three or four years old just buy a full frame camera

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah so a couple of notes first of all a good call on the pancake lens the twenty millimetre

⏹️ ▶️ Marco pancake i i wish that lens was available in full frame but it’s not so i can’t really

⏹️ ▶️ Marco use it but we for our five d mark twos that we’ve had as our big camera

⏹️ ▶️ Marco for a long time ever since they came out until i got this camera a couple years back when it came out we got the cannon

⏹️ ▶️ Marco forty millimetre e f pancake and that is a great lens and it’s like a hundred and fifty bucks and it’s

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a really good quality lens and it’s incredibly small and the effect that a very

⏹️ ▶️ Marco small light lens has on the way your camera feels and how just how

⏹️ ▶️ Marco how you handle it where you bring it how often you bring it it’s a massive difference and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so i strongly suggest if anybody has has a camera that and you don’t have

⏹️ ▶️ Marco any really small like pancake or pancake like lenses just get one and try it because

⏹️ ▶️ Marco you will bring your camera more places you’ll be amazed how how much of a of a difference it makes

⏹️ ▶️ Marco if you have a cannon i think they recently made a second panic i haven’t been paying that much attention um

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i think there’s a there’s a wider angle one like somewhere in the twenties but there’s there’s the forty millimeter

⏹️ ▶️ Marco pancake that’s fantastic and whatever pain lances have become popular in the last you know

⏹️ ▶️ Marco five years or so so whatever system you have a look for the pancake lens in

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a somewhat wide focal length and use it and you’ll be you’ll be very surprised

⏹️ ▶️ Marco how good it is and and how easy it is to carry your camera in with it and in fact for that reason

⏹️ ▶️ Marco my camera like i have i have the the thirty five two point eight prime the fifty

⏹️ ▶️ Marco five one point eight and the ninety macro in the in the sony fe line and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i almost always have the thirty five millimeter two point eight on there because it is just so small and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it is not a pancake lens it is it is not quite that that short distance wise

⏹️ ▶️ Marco but it is it is still very small and just the difference that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco makes on how the camera feels is just immense i’ve been saying so definitely get a pancake lens if you can

⏹️ ▶️ Marco secondly i will point out also that i’m kind of surprised you picked this camera

⏹️ ▶️ Marco based on our discussions because for what for what you wanted which

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is like you you basically wanted a superzoom replacement and this isn’t that um you know sonia

⏹️ ▶️ Marco has the r x ten and there’s many other brands that have that have super somes as well many of which

⏹️ ▶️ Marco are very good and all of our listeners wrote in to say that the that might micro

⏹️ ▶️ Marco four thirds and i think some people might have pointed out fuji x for this attribute as well

⏹️ ▶️ Marco but especially micro four thirds was very good for zoom lenses because of the smaller sensors and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco therefore having been able to have smaller lenses and less complex lenses for a big zoom

⏹️ ▶️ Marco reach so i am kind of surprised you didn’t go with that for that reason all these systems have these

⏹️ ▶️ Marco different pluses of monism as as we’ve discussed micro four thirds it really excels in

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in things being generally a little bit cheaper lens being a little bit cheaper a lot a lot more lens choice because

⏹️ ▶️ Marco they’ve just been around for so long and so many different brands make the lenses for it sony really excels

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in sensor quality and recently in focus advances autofocus advances

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in merit but it’s overall it sony really especially excels in having

⏹️ ▶️ Marco really amazing sensors getting lots of megapixels with very low noise and incredible dynamic range

⏹️ ▶️ Marco being able to be captured sony just kicks butt in that area and where sony

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is falls short is some of the kind of pro e type handling

⏹️ ▶️ Marco stuff and also lens like zoom lenses in particular like sony the primes

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that are available for sony cameras especially the full frame ones are generally amazing they’re a little expensive but

⏹️ ▶️ Marco they’re generally amazing zooms have always been sony’s weak point that the sony lineup

⏹️ ▶️ Marco has had fairly mediocre zoom lenses in it most of the time there like there is now

⏹️ ▶️ Marco very recently there’s been a couple of extremely high end ones that are huge heavy and very expensive in

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the new sony g master line but basically everything below that has been really hit

⏹️ ▶️ Marco or miss mostly miss so i am a little bit surprised you picked up given all that

⏹️ ▶️ John well so like i said i looked at superzoom first before i was even considering all this like better camera

⏹️ ▶️ John thing because that’s all my wife’s thing like hey she wants a better camera right i was just like well my super zooms getting kind

⏹️ ▶️ John of old maybe look at another one and i looked at all the super zooms they were out there and they all seemed like worse

⏹️ ▶️ John overall than my camera like they were better in many ways but also worse in ways that i didn’t like either the zoom

⏹️ ▶️ John wasn’t as big or like the arc ten like the thing is gigantic to realize how big that is it is huge and again it

⏹️ ▶️ John was one of my things i didn’t want it to be too big i didn’t want to spend fifteen hundred dollars

⏹️ ▶️ John for a non interchangeable amara just seemed weird to me and a and you know

⏹️ ▶️ John i still have my panasonic it still works i can still use it but the thing that was the real convince and

⏹️ ▶️ John you know the reason i’m glad it is as i rented it and i took it for the that the one time of year i take the most pictures

⏹️ ▶️ John like i take pictures you know throughout the year probably not as much as i should but when we go on our vacation to long island

⏹️ ▶️ John i take literally thousands of pictures right that is the most pictures i take all year in the most demanding circumstances

⏹️ ▶️ John of the most different people in the most different environments and the superzoom for the waves thing you know taking pictures

⏹️ ▶️ John in the way i like i said i brought both cameras to the beach use the some a lot but by the end of the trip

⏹️ ▶️ John even when we were at the ocean i was using this camera and yet i couldn’t get up as close and it probably helps that the

⏹️ ▶️ John days that i was doing is the beach that the surf was in close so maybe it would have bee different if it was farther away but like i said

⏹️ ▶️ John i still had the other camera and even with these things zoomed out i was happier with the zoomed out pictures from this camera

⏹️ ▶️ John that i could crop with the crappy zoom lens that i rented like i didn’t rent a very expensive zoom lens like a four

⏹️ ▶️ John hundred dollars zoom lens or something um and the range on it was you know half

⏹️ ▶️ John to a third of what it is on the super zoom and still this came out ahead and as i said the reason i would

⏹️ ▶️ John get expensive cameras once you take pictures indoors without a flash with a decent camera like

⏹️ ▶️ John you can’t go back to the other way that’s i why i don’t like the whole marcos cameras it’s depressing i

⏹️ ▶️ John don’t want to think about it like and that’s why they want to go micro for the like the whole reason i’m spending money this is i want

⏹️ ▶️ John a bigger sensor that can get more light and yes that means the lenses are going to be more expensive and i could get better

⏹️ ▶️ John zoom lenses for the micro for this like this is what i want i want i want a big sensor i want

⏹️ ▶️ John pictures that i couldn’t take it with any other camera can’t take with my iphone can’t take my supersonics there’s just not

⏹️ ▶️ John enough light and this is what that gives me and can i use it for all my zoom things for that

⏹️ ▶️ John one week a year when i need zoom the answer is apparently yes like it’s a different set of compromises

⏹️ ▶️ John but i do take pictures indoors and other things when i’m on vacation and like you know the proof is in the pudding i had both cameras there

⏹️ ▶️ John i used both of them and like if you watch the ratio by the last trip to the ocean it was like i’m not even taking that one out of the

⏹️ ▶️ John bag i’m just going to use this one for everything just because everything was so much better about it except for the zoom so

⏹️ ▶️ John you know so i’ll keep that i keep my out for super sms i don’t rule out like later if they make if panasonic for

⏹️ ▶️ John example makes another camera like mine that is just updated in all the ways but maybe even

⏹️ ▶️ John a little bit more compact and maybe optically a little bit better with the same zoom range i’ll probably buy it right because

⏹️ ▶️ John those are cheap they’re like you know six or seven hundred dollars compared to you know these interchangeable lens cameras

⏹️ ▶️ John are everything a billion dollars so i’m pretty happy with it i

⏹️ ▶️ Marco mean you you’ll pay that much for a good zoom lens at least on the your camera you have

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, John way more than that i’m probably

⏹️ ▶️ John appy zoom lens with a short range is a thousand bucks

⏹️ ▶️ John, Marco yeah

⏹️ ▶️ John it’s rough like you know but and i’m just thinking about like day to day i think this will make me take more pictures

⏹️ ▶️ John just normal stuff of like my family you know around the house and going out and taking walks and

⏹️ ▶️ John stuff because i’m not going to attach a big zoom we’ll probably just have a little pancake on there but it’s nice when we go out like

⏹️ ▶️ John after school and after dinner when it’s kind of dusk and it’s and it’s dark that i can actually get usable pictures

⏹️ ▶️ John ah you know my family walking under the street lights with this camera without a flash and that

⏹️ ▶️ John just wasn’t there was an environment where i would take any pictures before i wouldn’t try my phone and i wouldn’t bring my super

⏹️ ▶️ John zoom because the superzoom is actually it’s not heavier than this but physically dimension wise it’s bigger than

⏹️ ▶️ John than this camera with the pancake lens on it right so i feel like this is a good compromise

⏹️ ▶️ John for me now and i’m sure i’ll learn a lot using it and then you know we’ll see where we go from here

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i think these days so many photographic needs are solved so well by just your eyes iphone

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and that and the progress that iphone cameras have made has been so remarkable

⏹️ ▶️ Marco but the areas that they will never be able to match stand alone cameras are

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in or areas where you just need a large advance and expensive sensor

⏹️ ▶️ Marco you know like i funds have a lot of constraints on that camera obviously size is the most obvious

⏹️ ▶️ Marco one but also cost is a big one that camera module the entire camera module has to cost what like thirty bucks as

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i forget what the component breakdowns show it has but it’s somewhere in that range like it’s it’s not a ton of

⏹️ ▶️ Marco money that goes into that and so so you have no space you have very little money

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and you have to be able to mass produce a ton of them that’s always going to be more limited than

⏹️ ▶️ Marco what you can sell in a dedicated high end camera for a thousand dollars like that and that that can

⏹️ ▶️ Marco have this big body around it and have this big sensor that’s way bigger than the phone center and this giant lens taking off the front

⏹️ ▶️ Marco of it rel you know giant relative to to phone sensors and phones are not always be able to have

⏹️ ▶️ Marco like more advanced processing and software and tricks they can do with the software

⏹️ ▶️ Marco to make up for some of these some of these shortcomings that they have in their just tiny little cheap

⏹️ ▶️ Marco optics however i think one area where they are always going to struggle against

⏹️ ▶️ Marco big cameras is in low light sensitivity and a in dynamic range a little bit too

⏹️ ▶️ Marco but but especially low light sensitivity just because that is something where the physics are just working so much against

⏹️ ▶️ Marco them and that’s probably never going to change because phones are never going to become these you know

⏹️ ▶️ Marco two inch thick things that have that have this thousand dollar sensor and amazing

⏹️ ▶️ Marco glass in front of them like the market well that’s just not where they’re going so so i i think if you’re

⏹️ ▶️ Marco going to buy a camera that is not just your phone it benefits you a lot to get one that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is exceptionally good in low light just to really maximize like the difference and the justification

⏹️ ▶️ Marco for having a separate camera at all

⏹️ ▶️ John well again you can never say never because i always picture like a phone that’s like this you know

⏹️ ▶️ John magical thin thing where the entire back of the phone is basically one giant sensor plus this amazing computing

⏹️ ▶️ John power to somehow combine all light hitting that sensor without a lens in front of it to figure you

⏹️ ▶️ John know what i mean like light gathering the task copy i will gather all the light for you and then magic computers

⏹️ ▶️ John will figure out all the light hitting it like maybe there’s things that can tell what angle they hit the sensor out instead of just levels

⏹️ ▶️ John of light like you do have enough surface area basically for to imagine a future phone using it as

⏹️ ▶️ John yet undetermined technology where you could gather all the light hitting the back of phone and that’s plenty to have amazing the light

⏹️ ▶️ John photography but the technology is ah no nowhere on the horizon but i just you

⏹️ ▶️ John know like it’s not we won’t always be stuck with pinholes is what i’m saying so in the distant future

⏹️ ▶️ John that could be solved but for our lifetime i think we’re probably everything’s had their holes

DSLRs and “pro” gear

⏹️ ▶️ Marco betterment investing made better

⏹️ ▶️ Marco we got a couple of people asking us or as i think it might have just been the same person twice asking us

⏹️ ▶️ Marco um why we didn’t mention d slrs at all in these camera discussions recently

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and i have my reasons do you guys have any reason before before i jump in

⏹️ ▶️ Casey too big to carry that’s a good

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, Marco one i’m serious

⏹️ ▶️ Casey i’m not trying to be funny like the reason one of the biggest reasons i won micro for thirds it was less about

⏹️ ▶️ Casey cost so that was a small factor but more i knew i was already going to have

⏹️ ▶️ Casey something bigger than i really wanted that i had to carry and if i’m going to do that

⏹️ ▶️ Casey i want to try to make it as small as possible and like john had talked about earlier to my

⏹️ ▶️ Casey to my requirements micro four thirds was a really good happy medium and i didn’t want to go

⏹️ ▶️ Casey as big as a dslr although i went back and forth and back and forth about it and in fact i think i bothered

⏹️ ▶️ Casey underscore and marco a lot asking well what about this what about this what about this what about that and and eventually

⏹️ ▶️ Casey ended up on four thirds just because i didn’t want to carry it

⏹️ ▶️ John yeah for me it was size but also like i mean you know we know for years even just tangentially

⏹️ ▶️ John you know not really in the camera community but just like touching on it because i would like read things in deeper

⏹️ ▶️ John view and that’s that’s how figured to have with super soon again everything you just see which way the wind is blowing and the wind was blowing

⏹️ ▶️ John away from dslrs for regular people and i had a five

⏹️ ▶️ John d mark to borrowed from a particular source for my brother’s wedding that i used

⏹️ ▶️ John to take pictures so i know how big they are and how heavy they are i know how the little mirror flappy thing and all the

⏹️ ▶️ John other business like it just it just seems like it’s kind of like marko with his bmw versus his tesla

⏹️ ▶️ John the merriest one seems like oh this is clearly the future and even though because the market has been for so

⏹️ ▶️ John long that the dslrs are the high end i’m not sure that will always entirely hold

⏹️ ▶️ John and it just it was way outside that you know the merriest

⏹️ ▶️ John camera i brought is the whole the whole selling point for me is like is that it’s so small that like that the lens is laconic

⏹️ ▶️ John lly big on it because it’s so darn small and you can’t can’t get a desolate that big there’s not enough room

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the main reason why i don’t have a diesel anymore is what you guys said it’s mostly about size

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and also about the way the wind is blowing like one of the things that swayed me like you know we had we bought

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the five d mark two when it came out in two thousand eight and antifa i used a pair

⏹️ ▶️ Marco of those for her all of her pro photo stuff i went through you know all that went

⏹️ ▶️ Marco through a lot of our like high end hobby and of course all of our family stuff until about you know a year ago

⏹️ ▶️ Marco when i got my a seven or two and when one of the reasons i upgraded finally

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i mean first of all a camera that run that is in common use from two thousand eight

⏹️ ▶️ Marco until twenty fifteen is pretty good at that’s a pretty great run and that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco kind of shows like one of the reasons i was able to go that long and it’s still a great camera just

⏹️ ▶️ Marco you know it’s falling behind on a lot of the tech areas now but um when you get a really high end

⏹️ ▶️ Marco full frame professional grade camera it lasts similar you know similar to john mac pro which

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is at the same age actually but anyway the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco thing with sars though is you know yeah they are really big like you you can’t just casually throw

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a full frame slr into your back like that you you got to really decide to

⏹️ ▶️ Marco take that with you you know they’re they’re big they wail out the lenses are big they weigh a lot i didn’t

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i wasn’t that convinced that the size difference would matter that much until i lived with the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco sony for a little while and then i picked up tips camera to do something with one time and i was

⏹️ ▶️ Marco like oh my god like it felt like i was picking up an aircraft carrier like what is this thing like what

⏹️ ▶️ Marco how did i possibly use the this for that long and uh but that being said

⏹️ ▶️ Marco though there are still differences and mainly

⏹️ ▶️ Marco while the while the merriest cameras have all the action going with a lot of the tech advances these days

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and in particular a lot of the lens advancements these days i would still hesitate to call them

⏹️ ▶️ Marco professional cameras because you know pro obviously it’s a very loaded word in a lot

⏹️ ▶️ Marco of markets and it is mostly used for marketing in most places and it

⏹️ ▶️ Marco goes both ways you know companies put pro on put the name pro on things that aren’t

⏹️ ▶️ Marco necessarily quote professional grade and a lot of people who aren’t professionals buy pro gear

⏹️ ▶️ Marco aspirational and so there’s a lot of like agar in what that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco means however uh when you’re when you’re shooting things with a pro camera

⏹️ ▶️ Marco you need certain attributes that i don’t think any of the marilou vendors offer

⏹️ ▶️ Marco certainly sony doesn’t offer him first of all you need the battery to not be as much of a problem as it is i

⏹️ ▶️ Marco mean like that’s number one with the sony’s is they are awesome in so many ways but the battery life is terrible

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and and part of that is because you have to drive this lcd screen in the viewfinder and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in the in the back display so often you know and and s sl rs get away with only having

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the the back review screen and having optical viewfinders so you don’t really you know you sing through the lens you’re not lighting

⏹️ ▶️ Marco up a screen for all that looking time

⏹️ ▶️ John i think i recall seeing like a battery case for your phone or for somebody’s phone have you

⏹️ ▶️ John seen those things through the camera you mean yeah like it’s just

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a big big giant battery yeah i mean there’s battery grips and and they they basically like they like shove

⏹️ ▶️ Marco this protrusion into the battery port and have this big bass in the camera that usually holds two or three battery and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that’s you know that that’s something it obviously makes this camera a lot larger and heavier and that produces

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a lot of the advantages it has over but also you know slrs are just larger in general

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so sla batteries can be physically larger they can have way more capacity and on top of all that they’re you know they’re they’re

⏹️ ▶️ Marco doing less case they aren’t lighting up two screens all the im

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Casey so

⏹️ ▶️ Casey old on how often are you charging your sony though because my microphone thirds i

⏹️ ▶️ Casey charge once a month and and even when i was at the beach snapping a ton of pictures

⏹️ ▶️ Casey it i might have used maybe fifty percent of the battery and it has you know two lcds

⏹️ ▶️ Casey just like you’re describing are you charging your sony like every day when you’re on a vacation or when you’re

⏹️ ▶️ Casey taking a lot of pictures you have to god that’s terrible

⏹️ ▶️ John well well see like i was i was worried about the the battery life because on your view they always

⏹️ ▶️ John give like a number of shots for your battery capacity and my panasonic is actually pretty good i forget what they

⏹️ ▶️ John had it rated as like four hundred something or five hundred something but when i think like oh i take a lot

⏹️ ▶️ John of pictures like i would always bring have a spare battery i always bring the spare battery to the beach with me with my panasonic and i

⏹️ ▶️ John never needed to use it i think maybe one year because i forgot the charger of at night the night before i needed to use it right

⏹️ ▶️ John for the sony its number was lower on deeper view like it was it’s like it wasn’t that bad but it was lower

⏹️ ▶️ John and i was like i looked at the physical size of the battery i’m like really this looks so small because the battery is physically smaller than

⏹️ ▶️ John my panasonic battery so i felt like oh this is a bad sign so i had two batteries with me and i always you know

⏹️ ▶️ John charge every night and put the fresh one in and put the other one there like i was all ready to go every time i went to the beach i had two batteries

⏹️ ▶️ John always lasted all day i don’t think i got below like maybe i won’t below fifty per cent sometimes but i

⏹️ ▶️ John was pleasantly surprised about the better life but forget about more than one day if you are actively shooting

⏹️ ▶️ John a lot of pictures the end of the day you’re going to have to change a thing and i don’t mind like that’s all i wanted i like

⏹️ ▶️ John can i do my most demanding day fine like margo was right that it’s not if you were like doing a sporting event and taking

⏹️ ▶️ John a bazillion pictures it would probably just burn through the batter completely and you’d have to be swapping the batteries but for my use

⏹️ ▶️ John having two batteries and having knowing that one can basically last through almost anything that i have done and you know

⏹️ ▶️ John i don’t mind carrying another one of the little bates cause they’re not big they’re not heavy enough battery runs out it just swap it and it’s

⏹️ ▶️ John not a big deal so i would like it to be better as with many things and i feel like there’s more room in there maybe for a battery

⏹️ ▶️ John but it wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be but it’s definitely not like your micro fort there you’re

⏹️ ▶️ John charging her once a month forget about that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco no i mean because yeah casson in generally the battery life is a little bit worse mine is worse than yours i’m

⏹️ ▶️ Marco pretty sure because the full frame has the even more stuff to do electronically inside the images are even larger

⏹️ ▶️ Marco to process all you know all this stuff my battery life is probably among the worst in the in the camera industry

⏹️ ▶️ Marco right now do

⏹️ ▶️ John you do you have the same battery as me that’s what i was thinking do you actually have the same model of like it’s like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the whatever whatever whatever fifty

⏹️ ▶️ John yeah that’s the same battery i have so that so that’s why your better life is getting worse because your camera is is bigger sense

⏹️ ▶️ John or bigger screen like everything about it is going to use more battery than mine does and you have the same actual

⏹️ ▶️ John physical battery in it so that’s no good

⏹️ ▶️ Marco um so battery life is one of the things that differentiates pro pro am but another one is just like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco just handling durability speed support you know professional

⏹️ ▶️ Marco doesn’t always mean that it has the best features or the fastest whatever the fastest

⏹️ ▶️ Marco hardware or the highest end hardware the highest specs that is not what professional means that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco often you know results in that but not always professional means

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that you can use it to get your job done and it’s not going to fail on you so that’s why you know

⏹️ ▶️ Marco like if you look at you know a topic that we are near dear to toasters now

⏹️ ▶️ Marco god all of the toasters that john has tested and love so much will with very degrees

⏹️ ▶️ Marco of love so much um if you actually tried to use one of those toasters in a bagel shop

⏹️ ▶️ Marco where they need a toaster a lot like this is like a commercial duty rule if you used

⏹️ ▶️ Marco any of those toasters even the nice like three hundred dollar ones they would burn out and die

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in like two months at most because they’re not made they aren’t made for a heavy workload

⏹️ ▶️ Marco they aren’t you know they would overheat or they would have problems like they’re not made for that and if you

⏹️ ▶️ Marco look at it like a toaster that’s in like a bagel shop you have one of those like belt drive toasters those like a thousand dollars

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and you look at and you’re like that’s stupid this toaster i can get at at macy’s or whatever

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is like forty bucks and has way more features than that but that forty dollar thing will die shortly

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and you can’t do like all this toast at the same time with it and everything else and that thousand dollar really basic belt

⏹️ ▶️ Marco drive one at the bagel shop is going to work for a long time pro gear is is you know

⏹️ ▶️ Marco this is a metaphor for most truly professional gear and if you look at what what the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco mid range and high end slrs are like you know and i’m really talking about like cannon and icon here

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i don’t think anybody else is really in this game anymore canon and nikon and i think cannon owns quite a

⏹️ ▶️ Marco bit of it these are like machines that are designed to do work and never fail on

⏹️ ▶️ Marco you as much as i love my sony camera i would be surprised

⏹️ ▶️ Marco if it still works perfectly eight years from now whereas the canon

⏹️ ▶️ Marco does cause that’s a program camera the sony is a really high end feature and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco spect camera but it does not handle like a professional camera it doesn’t feel like a professional camera it

⏹️ ▶️ Marco doesn’t feel like it has the longevity and and the ruggedness and i think generally speaking i think

⏹️ ▶️ Marco people’s experiences online have backed that up where you’ll hear about like pro pro photographers who took

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a sony a seven series camera like to antarctica and fail or something like that like and you can do that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco with other cameras because they’re made for like hard use extreme conditions they’re always ready

⏹️ ▶️ Marco they’re like you know i mean you know within reason of course but like you know they’re they’re generally just more

⏹️ ▶️ Marco rugged and they they’re also just you know they’re they’re faster they have more physical buttons and yet

⏹️ ▶️ Marco they’re larger and clunkier and heavier to get you all that stuff but you know that’s all there they have dual card

⏹️ ▶️ Marco slots because you know that way you can you can have like a backup in case one card fails or whatever else there’s so many

⏹️ ▶️ Marco affordances there and if they break there’s generally better service available to

⏹️ ▶️ Marco for pro gear not always but usually and that’s that’s another area where sony has been criticized as having

⏹️ ▶️ Marco kind of shoddy service for like for pro kind of use all these merrilee cameras

⏹️ ▶️ Marco like they really don’t handle like pro cameras they they don’t have the strength and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco ruggedness and durability of pro cameras and they don’t have really like the the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco design workload of pro cameras and that that won’t change so i think and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco honestly when i do handle an essay are these days there are parts of it i do miss i miss how

⏹️ ▶️ Marco incredibly responsive they are i miss how just how fast i can snap off shots and have it be no problem

⏹️ ▶️ Marco at all and see everything i do miss a true optical viewfinder sometimes and there are certain things

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that as musing that i miss about my sony like as musing i miss things like focus peaking which i don’t think you can do at all in

⏹️ ▶️ Marco an slr because the way the system designed um things you know like there’s all sorts of things that you

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that you can that you have the luxuries with with marilu cameras that you can that you really can’t do with users but

⏹️ ▶️ Marco if i was going out like shooting an event again like like i used to do with tiff when i was when i was her

⏹️ ▶️ Marco second shooter i would pick an slr still and probably for the foreseeable future because

⏹️ ▶️ Marco they for actual pro use where every shot matters you can’t have any delays you can

⏹️ ▶️ Marco have anything fail you can’t worry about the battery i mean when we were shooting with those with the five ds you know tif and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i shot a bunch of weddings together because she she’s a ending talk of er and we would shoot together i can’t i

⏹️ ▶️ Marco think maybe i worried about the battery level once in all that time you know i

⏹️ ▶️ Marco used to be full up the cars before before the battery would run out you just never had to think about the battery because it was so

⏹️ ▶️ Marco big and with the sony i’m thinking about the battery almost every time like almost every day shoot with the sony i have to watch that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco are level and then it got down like twenty percent go to the extra out of my pocket you know it’s it’s not

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a professional piece of equipment it produces very incredible photos but it is not pro

⏹️ ▶️ Marco gear and solar’s not all of them are but many slrs are pro quality gear and that difference i think will

⏹️ ▶️ Marco always be there just because of the the market realities and the physical realities the others two market

⏹️ ▶️ John there you go the ways again you know you’re not going to jump on that

⏹️ ▶️ John, Marco getting back

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment to to the wind is

⏹️ ▶️ John blowing like it it reminds me kind of the i mean not quite the same

⏹️ ▶️ John allergy is not perfect but it’s i think it’s a similar enough situation that i can put you into the right mind set to understand

⏹️ ▶️ John how this is going to go when professionals all use some cameras best digital cameras were crap we all remember

⏹️ ▶️ John that time were all to remember that where of course you know digital cameras are fine they’re an interesting toy

⏹️ ▶️ John but it’s ridiculous you will never compare to thirty five min the film film professionals all those professional cameras

⏹️ ▶️ John from canada and icon they were all not disa the slrs without the d in the front of them because they

⏹️ ▶️ John you know they are professional camera for all the reasons you stated and they weren’t digital because everybody knows that digital may

⏹️ ▶️ John have some weird advantages but you can’t take decent pictures with it and that slowly

⏹️ ▶️ John really really slowly changed and there was a time when no professional photographer use digital and

⏹️ ▶️ John now almost all of them do unless they’re a real artsy fartsy um it just so happened they stayed in the same form

⏹️ ▶️ John factor that dslr at that point and there’s a lot of you know

⏹️ ▶️ John not baggage but history there it’s it’s you know even if it was universally better it would take a long time as people have

⏹️ ▶️ John tons of lenses and they’re used to the cameras they like and is established people for you know know how to fix them and they are

⏹️ ▶️ John kind of familiar with the machines and the way they work but there are still advantages

⏹️ ▶️ John to merely in terms of like a continuous auto focus of a moving target that

⏹️ ▶️ John you could you know never do manually focusing and that the dslr is not fast enough to catch for very very fast motion

⏹️ ▶️ John for things like sports photography um and of course all the size advantages and all the other

⏹️ ▶️ John things i’m not saying it’s inevitable but i feel like the main thing keeping d slr

⏹️ ▶️ John is dominant now is because man like the inertia that manufacturers are making there’s

⏹️ ▶️ John no reason you couldn’t make a professional murals camera just what happens no one is doing that because the market is in dslrs

⏹️ ▶️ John and they’re really good and the advantages having shift over enough but i feel like this is a slow migration

⏹️ ▶️ John that gradually over time like sony’s kind of doing it first to the meris camera’s like oh this is a great way

⏹️ ▶️ John for consumers to get a camera that has a little bit bigger sensor ah but you know that we know consumers don’t want to buy

⏹️ ▶️ John an slr because they’re really big so this is a great advantage for them and sonny was like you know we can make even better

⏹️ ▶️ John camera like that maybe we can make a full frame one and maybe we can make good enough that professionals might notice and all

⏹️ ▶️ John things margot said about them not being suitable for the job are still true but you know they’re creeping

⏹️ ▶️ John up on that no one knowing before the eighth seven and our camera

⏹️ ▶️ John there wasn’t a thing that even existed and now you know sonny’s probably the wrong company to do it but like all it’s going to take

⏹️ ▶️ John is for you know five years from now or whatever for nikon and canon to make their first professional merle camera and

⏹️ ▶️ John that’s just like then you’ve passed the tipping point and it’s just a matter of time then before they all switch over because i think the

⏹️ ▶️ John advantages are important enough that eventually people will make professional murals cameras even if they’re not doing

⏹️ ▶️ John that today

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that’s a that’s a fair point i mean i guess i should clarify that you know i don’t i don’t believe

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it’s impossible to make a pro grade pro handling marilu camera there’s nothing about the merrill us

⏹️ ▶️ Marco component layout that prevents pro cameras from being made that i know of a davis aren’t

⏹️ ▶️ Marco made and and even even the very expensive ones like like the fan r two are professional

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in quality but not professional in handling and responsiveness and ruggedness and everything so that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco being said sony is rumored to be working on something that the rumors had to call

⏹️ ▶️ Marco on the a nine that is allegedly a pro like marius

⏹️ ▶️ Marco with the a seven series sensors so that could be really interesting if that’s real and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco if it if it actually is pro handling and all this being said

⏹️ ▶️ Marco if i were to look at an salar again today i would probably end up looking at nikon honestly

⏹️ ▶️ Marco not canon because canon has just not been keeping up at

⏹️ ▶️ Marco all with sony in dynamic range and high iso noise performance

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and nikon uses sony sensors and so like the nikon d seven fifty

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is an incredible camera it’s not even that that new anymore it’s an incredible camera that has

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a beautiful sony sensor in it that’s very similar to the a seven r one censor

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i believe um and yet so i would almost certainly go nikon if i was going essilor

⏹️ ▶️ John fault so he can tell us what’s going on syracuse

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey why

⏹️ ▶️ John is this house is my fault they just explain once again once again tiff i decided

⏹️ ▶️ John to do to use boot camp for this game the day i decided to do it i spent some time waffling around and

⏹️ ▶️ John seeing how much windows ten costs before eventually deciding to go with the copy windows seven that i had i wiped my

⏹️ ▶️ John boot camp partition made a new one installed windows seven installed steam and played

⏹️ ▶️ John all of inside everything i just described took place in one day that’s all i’m saying

⏹️ ▶️ Casey oh god wait can you hold on a second

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment i just want to play a three hour game i just want to play it it’s a three hour

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment game it’s this is the gilligan’s island of of games here

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, John you go on a three hour

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment tour and you end up there for your whole frigging life because you’re dealing with windows nightmares

⏹️ ▶️ John what’s going wrong here how how this is not happening this has been like days week it’s been a long time

⏹️ ▶️ John it’s been been a long time not even counting the whole time about waffling what you should do and then even after the decision has been

⏹️ ▶️ John made that we’re going to go boot camp and still i assume you have not played this game

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment oh because this whole bootcamp thing was pitched to us as oh it’ll be no problem it’s just bootcamp

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment you just put it on the

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, Marco disk

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, Casey and you

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, Marco have your little

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment partition and you just plug it in and it’ll be so easy you should just do it it’s so easy i

⏹️ ▶️ John did this like it’s not speculation like it should be easy i actually did it

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment if you actually wrote out the steps it would take to have

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, John this

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment done

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, John we totally would have just

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment went with the initial marco idea of let’s just throw some money at the problem and buy an

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment xbox because we should have done that because

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, John the

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment infuriating i’m almost about to break i’m going to kick all the computers

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment in like in their faces like i’m so angry

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment windows

⏹️ ▶️ Marco all right so here’s here’s what has happened so the other night as you know we have a child

⏹️ ▶️ Marco he is young we haven’t had a ton of time to develop to this problem so you know a few weeks ago whenever

⏹️ ▶️ Marco whenever we talked about it first i had created this this bootcamp this

⏹️ ▶️ Marco bootcamp installation of windows ten using a real windows ten product key thanks to a

⏹️ ▶️ Marco listener who who graciously sent me one actually well i hadn’t entered it yet

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Tiff Arment that

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment was tonight’s problem thanks thanks windows your tattoo of

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment the warning signs all over everything you do if you don’t go

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, Marco right

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Tiff Arment so

⏹️ ▶️ Marco anyway anyway so einstein is ten choosing the like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco remind me later option on the product he screen because why wouldn’t you click that and then

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and then um i saw it like on the this external samson s so that we could plug it into

⏹️ ▶️ Marco any computer we wanted to because sometimes i might want to play a game sometimes it might be on my laptop

⏹️ ▶️ Marco on pontes desktop so we set it all up on my laptop

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and figuring that i could just plug it into tiffs imac to play the game when she was ready because her imac

⏹️ ▶️ Marco was in use she was working and using it and i didn’t want to disturb it during setup so i set the whole

⏹️ ▶️ Marco thing up as a bootable boot camp drive on the ssd from my laptop night book pro

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment and i got the message of oh don’t worry whenever you’re ready to play this game i got it all set up we just need

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment to plug in i could bring it here i could bring it there i could put it on this i could put it on that and you’re going to be

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment ready to go you just let me know

⏹️ ▶️ John that’s exactly how i sounded so i feel like you’re still yelling at me about that and you realize this is your husband and even

⏹️ ▶️ John it’s not me i live over here in this house

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment and i know where

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment that house is john but i

⏹️ ▶️ John didn’t do this i take no blame for this whatsoever you should be angry at marco

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment previous destinations in my g p s t and i can find you that’s it that’s all it takes

⏹️ ▶️ John in the computer with you and i’ll have you set up

⏹️ ▶️ Casey driving over to tim now wait whose house john’s house yeah driving over to john’s

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah yeah so anyway uh so i plugged the plug the drive into tips computer so

⏹️ ▶️ Marco you know she has like this one night set out which was a couple of days ago this one night set out that this is the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco day that she’s able to play this game finally so put her kid to bed i start shitting

⏹️ ▶️ Marco on her computer and rebooting the boot camp drive and of course since the boot camp

⏹️ ▶️ Marco installation was something like two weeks old it had a software update go to the software

⏹️ ▶️ Marco updates okay update update

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Tiff Arment read the

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment software update a just a software update i think you need to fix that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah it had multiple software updates didn’t

⏹️ ▶️ John you use windows for like years and years before you use the mac like these are rookie mistakes that i don’t even

⏹️ ▶️ John use windows

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment the only reason i use

⏹️ ▶️ John it for camp and even i know the day you decide to play your windows game is not the day to find out you have windows updates

⏹️ ▶️ John like there’s always a prep day where you install all the windows updates and make sure everything is said to go

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment every day you find out every day is a windows update day every day

⏹️ ▶️ John but is it like you can you can defer them anyway

⏹️ ▶️ Marco you have left the prep day out of that three hour total that this took you then

⏹️ ▶️ John no that that day that i did it i did all the updates because it was a full day it was a weekend i did i did

⏹️ ▶️ John the hemming and hauling about doing it i did the research i did the creation of the partition i did the installation i did

⏹️ ▶️ John the endless windows updates and then after dinner i played the game because it’s too oh my god all

⏹️ ▶️ Marco right so anyway so you know we we boot up we go to the software updates um

⏹️ ▶️ Marco every few times that it boots it gives the the non system disk error

⏹️ ▶️ Marco on boot for some reason like that old dos error i put it on instagram like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah so windows is windows it’s a total pile of garbage as it always has been um

⏹️ ▶️ Marco because i haven’t used windows since xp of course took me a long time

⏹️ ▶️ Marco to find certain settings and like things like how do i change the resolution and things like that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco anyway so when i first installed it i thought you know

⏹️ ▶️ Marco just in case because i because i created this installation on a macbook pro but

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i’m running it now on a five k i mac just in case let me update the because when

⏹️ ▶️ Marco when we first launched the game on the mac the frame rate was terrible so like all right maybe i need to update the video driver

⏹️ ▶️ Marco because it didn’t install the one for the imac maybe it only installed the one for the mac pro

⏹️ ▶️ Marco even though it’s like one package of support files for all hardware supposedly okay

⏹️ ▶️ Marco reinstall the tools you know get try to fix a stupid frame rate issue finally we get it we

⏹️ ▶️ Marco get it going and we get the game going and i eventually figure out the resolution and have to reboot through all the stupid

⏹️ ▶️ Marco updates so we’re already like two hours in now all this stupid updating and rebooting and

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment we only have so much time right because we have a child who goes to sleep and once he goes to sleep we only have so much

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment time to play the game before we’re exhausted and we can’t stay up anymore so we have

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment a limited window

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Tiff Arment yeah

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so this this terrible like rebooting cycle and drivers and all this b s eventually

⏹️ ▶️ Marco we get the game finally to run and then then it’s like wait there’s no mouse support we got a plug in a controller cause

⏹️ ▶️ Marco there’s like a controller options like how do we do that and we try to use the keyboard and we eventually

⏹️ ▶️ Marco came to that but first first we like well we don’t have any game pads for pcs but it’s like but we have a p s

⏹️ ▶️ Marco three controller we have a ps four controller we have an xbox three sixty controller and everything like oh you can

⏹️ ▶️ Marco just plug these in they’ll just start working so we tried a few of those and of course none of them actually worked even though

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the x xbox the xbox three sixty controller came closest that it actually should have in in whatever

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the current name is for device manager however it didn’t the game didn’t recognize it for whatever

⏹️ ▶️ Marco reason like the they just couldn’t assign things to it so oh well that you know never mind so eventually we’re like our fine keyboard

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so we went to keyboard then it finally starts playing the game okay finally it’s

⏹️ ▶️ Marco like you know it’s probably like ten o’clock finally we can finally start playing this game

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so i leave the room because i didn’t i didn’t want to disturb her with light from my computer because the screens are so freaking reflective

⏹️ ▶️ Marco um so she’s playing the game in a nice dark office i leave the office it called me back in like four minutes

⏹️ ▶️ Marco later the game broke what i come in and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it’s just like it had quit to the status like it had minimized itself to the status bar as if you what

⏹️ ▶️ Marco used to happen i don’t know if it still happens in windows gaming but what used to happen if you accidently hit the windows key and or

⏹️ ▶️ Marco invoked alt tab in any other way

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment so i got accused of did you did you put your finger on a button and i’m like no i do not have a finger

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment on a button i

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, Casey would know if i hit a button

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, Marco a

⏹️ ▶️ Casey it’s

⏹️ ▶️ Marco smart i just wanted to rule that out because you know it’s it’s

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Tiff Arment right there on the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco keyboard next to all the other buttons anyway um

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Tiff Arment have it has a great but

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it happens to the best of us every pc gamer accidentally hits the windows key sometimes it always happens anyway

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so so of course i see the game like minimize the task bar and of course once

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the game is minimized to the task bar you can’t get it to resume like that that’s it it’s over you have to like force quit

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it you can still hear it you can still move the character around but you can’t like there’s no way you can get a back full screen again

⏹️ ▶️ Marco because windows gaming apparently has not advanced since this was a problem in nineteen ninety nine

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment and the cursor disappears the curser totally disappears you i can’t even do anything

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah because the game captures the mouse cursor still you have to like all tab to

⏹️ ▶️ Marco nothing else to get the cursor bag it’s like i am shocked that windows has not fixed

⏹️ ▶️ Marco these problems in the like sixteen years since since i first started seeing it like how really

⏹️ ▶️ Marco how have they not fixed this anyway they haven’t because windows is terrible so anyway we

⏹️ ▶️ Marco eventually like you know i get back in the game where we try every boot and we tried installing other video

⏹️ ▶️ Marco drivers looking the internet for solutions of course the internet fill garbage so i leave you know

⏹️ ▶️ Marco tiff tries again and we start getting this this balloon that comes up that the video

⏹️ ▶️ Marco driver has stopped responding but it has recovered so first of all

⏹️ ▶️ Marco who the hell writes these messages like why why does a user

⏹️ ▶️ Marco need to know like what what is a regular person i mean we are experts sort of not

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in windows are gaming but like we are computer experts and i know what all those words mean and i

⏹️ ▶️ Marco still can’t tell you what the hell is supposed to do about that maybe it’s the ram

⏹️ ▶️ Casey marg you don’t even understand yes

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, Marco i

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John don’t even

⏹️ ▶️ Casey understand margo you think those error messages are bad imagine just a hex coat that’s all you get is a hex

⏹️ ▶️ Casey coat an error has occurred hexo and then you just go scouring

⏹️ ▶️ Casey the internet hoping that somebody has hit this before and has a fix do

⏹️ ▶️ John you remember what i told the story in the pocket and remember do you remember what i had to do to get my video you know basically

⏹️ ▶️ John to get my video drivers store do you remember that no cause i had i took a few runs at it where i installed the

⏹️ ▶️ John bootcamp drivers i would install windows and then install the boot camp drivers but every time i install the boot camp drivers had

⏹️ ▶️ John made my system un bootable like he would boot back up and unrecognized do you want to try to repair and he would try

⏹️ ▶️ John to repair and it would never succeed and it would be like oh well right so what i had to do was install without

⏹️ ▶️ John the drivers then do apple’s little boot camp driver installation but stop it as soon as

⏹️ ▶️ John sound works because it makes a sound when it installs the driver and i had to

⏹️ ▶️ John, Marco forcibly

⏹️ ▶️ John kill the driver installation and then install like i had three things i had had windows

⏹️ ▶️ John itself i had the the ati drivers from the radion drivers

⏹️ ▶️ John like third party drivers from the radion site four boot camps specifically so amd says these are the ones

⏹️ ▶️ John used for boot camp for this video card right and then i have the apple drivers and the combination of three of them as i had to do

⏹️ ▶️ John them in a certain order and i had to kill the apple one as soon as sound worked and that is the set up that worked for me

⏹️ ▶️ John that was like an hour’s worth of fusing there so it’s never easy and i think it’s easy but i figured it was because

⏹️ ▶️ John my computer is ancient and like it would be easier on a modern computer

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment i feel like when people go through all of these steps to do something simple and they recount

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment all the steps and the craziness and it took me a day and i did this and then i did this and then i got into work and

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment now it works and it’s fine i feel like it’s like a bell like a badge of honor

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment right that everyone’s wearing now that oh look how many things that i did to get my

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment thing my my my simple task to do to play a game just a game just a game

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment that

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, Casey let me remind everyone said though

⏹️ ▶️ Casey let me remind everyone i was making a fairly lucrative living in windows and did everything in my power

⏹️ ▶️ Casey to leave that behind maybe maybe that was for a reason maybe that reason might

⏹️ ▶️ Casey be windows

⏹️ ▶️ John this just reminds you of why why we all have macs like this is this is the reason why but see

⏹️ ▶️ John the trick is that if if this is proposed as a solution is an easy way to play a game

⏹️ ▶️ John by somebody no for for you know you first of all i had more faith in mark’s ability

⏹️ ▶️ John to but second of all the most

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey important the most important thing

⏹️ ▶️ John marco can have these struggles because the timeline is already incredibly stretched out because of all this you know hemming

⏹️ ▶️ John and hing and trying to side what’s going to do you don’t present it as ready to play unless

⏹️ ▶️ John you’re sure it’s ready to play like you don’t like the making the promise like go and drive

⏹️ ▶️ John everything’s all set like you should have known like tip should not you shouldn’t even talk to tip about this until you’ve

⏹️ ▶️ John you’ve loaded it played it for fifteen minutes reset it to the beginning of the game and say okay now it’s ready for

⏹️ ▶️ John you like that’s when it’s actually ready you don’t you don’t involve her unless she wants to do it herself fine then she can

⏹️ ▶️ John deal with all this crap but if you’re going to deal with the crap don’t call her in to look at it until it’s really done that’s

⏹️ ▶️ John a secret to all the gigi like stuff you’re you know doing for your family whatever you don’t want to show them what

⏹️ ▶️ John it actually takes to get this done you don’t call them into the room until the thing is already loaded in itunes or netflix

⏹️ ▶️ John until it’s already cuing up until you’ve seen the paramount logo appear like you know all the network connections are

⏹️ ▶️ John working you know you signed in you know everything has a head soft for update the popcorn is popping they come and they sit down

⏹️ ▶️ John and you hit the play button but it was already about to play like that’s what you gotta do

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment the everyone who is in a relationship of any kind would totally

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment pat me on the back because i didn’t say i told you so at that moment when he

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, Marco brought

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment up it was in your eyes oh yeah well i can’t keep it out of my eyes i mean i got to show you a little

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment bit i

⏹️ ▶️ Marco mean you’re giving me like the look so hard that i didn’t say it

⏹️ ▶️ John yeah she held at me on twitter instead that she was transference she’s just taking it out on me

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah so anyway so eventually it this keeps this stupid like display driver

⏹️ ▶️ Marco stopped responding but we figured it out but yet this is still a problem that we need to alert you with via a balloon that kills

⏹️ ▶️ Marco your game ah this problem kept happening and i tried you know this is like there’s like an ati driver control

⏹️ ▶️ Marco panel so i kept opening it up and like turning down settings i tried lowering the resolution which is

⏹️ ▶️ Marco not easy anymore but i eventually dug down and found all this crap in their new interface

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that’s even worse than the old one and eventually figured out legal let me turn in all the settings turned on all the anti

⏹️ ▶️ Marco thing carl like turned down everything that i know to be complex and it still kept having these problems on the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it’s not like an issue of it overloading so i thought maybe just maybe

⏹️ ▶️ Marco this is because i had created the installation on my laptop and i was running it on a five k mac

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and so i thought let’s just try playing the game on the laptop so

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment we abandoned ship from the imac yeah so i moved to the chair to survive

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment the survivors you know got in the boat and we left the imac and we moved on to the chair

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment with the laptop

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah so finally went over finally play the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco game on the laptop and it what was the what was the first problem you had there was

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that was that

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment the one no i just needed you to get my pen

⏹️ ▶️ Marco right and and we’ve ran out of power almost and this that that was another balloon

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Tiff Arment ten percent

⏹️ ▶️ Marco warning right

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment yeah yeah the battery almost ran out because

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, Marco we

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment took out to plug in because it’s a laptop

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah it turns out when you play games laptop batteries don’t last very long what a surprise so

⏹️ ▶️ Marco anyway

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment so i go back to play the game tonight since i stayed up so late last night trying to finish the game in time

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment but it gets just got so late i was i was very very tired

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in the ultimate insult i went to bed before she did and

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment then alexa turns off all the lights on me which was the worst but i had her turn it back on i felt

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment so cool oh

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, John good

⏹️ ▶️ John for moonlighting though right it’s good for atmosphere for

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment that

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment well i had it mostly dark i just didn’t want the whole house to be dark like the other rooms lights went off and

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment i was like plunged into the you know pit of darkness so i had to have her turn it back on but anyway

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment so tonight heath podcasting i have my game on a laptop it’s portable

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment i can leave the office i can go play wherever i want and i sit down and i’m getting ready to play

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment and a message is tattooed in the corner of this dark game it

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment says activate windows go to

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, John settings to act if they window

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment marco

⏹️ ▶️ John never activated that’s right then when you left the part of the story it’s like a click to

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment see register later like yeah you caught that little little see that he planted there so it’s tattooed

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment on the bottom of the game everything is dark and you know if anyone has played inside you kind of see

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment the it’s a lot of silhouettes it is it’s very distracting when you have big white letters

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment right at the bottom of the screen shouting at you about activating your windows which

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, Marco whatever the hell

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment that means whatever the hell that means and so i go to the settings so it could tell me and it says

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment there’s a button that says do you want to know what the hell this means and so i click the button and it tells

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment me that i need some sort of key and i need to have this program go in and

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment change settings on my computer in order to get this key and what does that just makes me panic so

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment i’m here texting marco while he’s podcasting asking him for a key and he’s like can you wait

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment i’m like no there’s this huge ugly tattoo all over my game and then in that process the game stops

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment boot it won’t boot anymore it just won’t it just stops it’s just spinning into

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment the abyss steam doesn’t work nothing’s working finally he sends me the

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment message with the key in it so thank you whoever gave us that key you’re

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment awesome i put it in i mistyped it i put it in again

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment and it works and then i have to shut down all the programs that i had open and open them again because

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment it can’t figure out what i just did and so now the game is sitting on the

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment laptop and it is running and it looks great and marco calls me in here so

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment that’s where we are

⏹️ ▶️ John i’m so glad that a journey is only available on the console because

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey this

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment is

⏹️ ▶️ John like totally destroying the experience of inside which is this moody you know atmosphere game you really want us get

⏹️ ▶️ John into in a quiet house and i in have to worry about it instead you’re being accosted by terrible little

⏹️ ▶️ John balloon asking you to update windows

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment tell me about it i should have like a one driver

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment i really just should have stayed up all night last night and finished it i think i have only about like forty minutes left

⏹️ ▶️ Marco oh my god yeah it’s so in conclusion bootcamp

⏹️ ▶️ Marco sucks john you were wrong and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, John when to suck

⏹️ ▶️ John you suck an installing boot camp i think that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i can’t really argue with that but i mean it sounds even from your experience it

⏹️ ▶️ Marco sounds like there’s just a baseline level of windows crappies that you have to deal with

⏹️ ▶️ Marco even if you do everything right well even if you have a pc and it seems like that is approximately like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco seventy five percent of the trouble that we had so it isn’t even that much less than the trouble we had

⏹️ ▶️ John well but you but you did you made bad choices you didn’t activate immediately you didn’t think about the fact that you

⏹️ ▶️ John had to update you installed one attached to different hardware than you were going to play on like is there all mistakes that i could guide you away

⏹️ ▶️ John from you you presented as a tip before you knew it was ready like some of these are just procedural marriage

⏹️ ▶️ John mistakes and some of them are technical mistakes windows and like and see when i’m doing

⏹️ ▶️ John it myself i am both the preparer and the person who am playing for i’m the most demanding customer for playing i don’t want

⏹️ ▶️ John to even begin the play session until i’m absolutely dead sure that everything is all set right

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment john next time you say that this is going to be fine and it’s so easy just put something

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment on this thing and then we can play it you’re going to come over here first and do it for us and then i

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment play

⏹️ ▶️ John i feel like you should bring the computer to me for this service but yea oh

⏹️ ▶️ Casey there’s a surprise john doesn’t want to leave the house

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John now but he would have seen margaret

⏹️ ▶️ John likes to drive places and

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment his

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, John test like

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment pizza we can show up i’ll go with that yeah i do that

⏹️ ▶️ John it seems like

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey fun so here

⏹️ ▶️ John so now now that we’ve got you both here and you’ve had this terrible experience like another thing you need to know is the care and

⏹️ ▶️ John feeding of a boot camp partition and steam like oh

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment god come a in

⏹️ ▶️ John in the future the for marcos is fine there will

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment come

⏹️ ▶️ John, Marco a time in the

⏹️ ▶️ John future when you want to use this again to play a game will there really yeah don’t assume that because

⏹️ ▶️ John you played a game on it three months ago that you’re like oh i already have that i’ll just go into it and download the game and play you will

⏹️ ▶️ John not there’ll be windows updates there will be steam updates you might have to update your drivers after both of those

⏹️ ▶️ John happen like it’s you know you have there is a car on feeding of it the longer you go the longer

⏹️ ▶️ John it takes now that’s why i still usually allow for like with an existing boot competition like when i had xp

⏹️ ▶️ John i allowed for one day to install by the game to all the updates launch it make sure it runs

⏹️ ▶️ John the next day would be the play start playing the game which is not you know it’s not that bad you

⏹️ ▶️ John just but you just have to plan for it if you go in and say okay this new game is out i’ve set aside

⏹️ ▶️ John this time i’m going to boot back into boot camp for the first time in three months you will not be playing that game for

⏹️ ▶️ John a long time right so you have to have the you know if you use the boot camp partition every day it’s

⏹️ ▶️ John fine like it’ll you know sort of it’s like using your mac every day every once in a while the updates or whatever but it

⏹️ ▶️ John really kills you if you just leave a dormant for months and months so keep that in mind and the next time a game is out and she wants to play

⏹️ ▶️ John it get it all set up for ahead of time make sure all the updates are run launch it play a little

⏹️ ▶️ John bit of yourself delete the save game go back to the beginning make sure he and i don’t think your campion is healthy already because

⏹️ ▶️ John those buttons those bubbles with the the the you know well maybe once you activate it on the laptop it’s fine but if she’s

⏹️ ▶️ John gonna play it an imac wipe the whole thing start over reinstall on the imac from the beginning when she’s not there or something you may

⏹️ ▶️ John have to sacrifice your own sleep to do this instead of just going to be early because you’re tired from fighting with windows

⏹️ ▶️ John so what part of this is the fun playing the game which is you’re supposed to let her have all the

⏹️ ▶️ John fun and you do all the work

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment this is it if i’m still here i didn’t really leave i just

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment feel like that knowing that there is another way to do this where you just turn on a game

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment and it’s there and maybe there’s one update is

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment, John just how much better

⏹️ ▶️ John i think you i think you under underestimate the number of updates on consoles like you x box one out of

⏹️ ▶️ John the box you’re not playing you know inside on that expo until you run through all the updates the xbox system

⏹️ ▶️ John software then download the game and then whatever patches it’s not it’s better it’s way better i’m not going to

⏹️ ▶️ John say it’s not but it’s not like oh the xbox just arrived set that up for me and after i finished

⏹️ ▶️ John lunch i’ll start playing no you want

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that’s the problem it’s like like we we think of consoles as like the way the sega genesis was it just literally

⏹️ ▶️ Marco always works exactly the same way you plug in the game you you turn it on it starts immediately it plays that game

⏹️ ▶️ Marco you’re done

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment well that’s the way steam on mac works

⏹️ ▶️ Marco sorry of

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, John you’re

⏹️ ▶️ John constantly using your mac and you’re constantly updating it and i bet steam updates like every other time you lunch it anyway even on your mac it’s

⏹️ ▶️ John just that you’re constantly doing that so the updates aren’t gigantic and there’s not seven of them it’s just you know the cost of doing business the

⏹️ ▶️ John ongoing cost of just using your mac and running the updates all the time whenever you feel like it

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment i don’t think i want to pay this cost john well

⏹️ ▶️ John marco is supposed to be

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment i said why

⏹️ ▶️ John he does all the work you have all the fun

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment yeah why is he the one paying this cost why are why aren’t i getting berated to learn how to do all this stuff

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment myself come on that’s the

⏹️ ▶️ John obvious you could but then you have to pay the costs and then you have to have the fun like that’s what i did in no one else in my family

⏹️ ▶️ John is helping me set up my boot camp out on i pay the cost and i have the fun i’m just saying in the situation if market was going to

⏹️ ▶️ John do it for you then you that’s the arrangement you can have if you want to do it all yourself and not trust market to do it because maybe

⏹️ ▶️ John you have exactly as much now edge about windows as he does which is entirely plausible then you should

⏹️ ▶️ Marco anyway hope this game is good you want to go finish

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment it yeah i need to go finish this game i’ll see you on the incomparable john

⏹️ ▶️ Marco okay joy thanks a lot incomparable for causing all this

⏹️ ▶️ Casey matthew s wrote in and said i’ve spotted a new trend whilst commuting on

⏹️ ▶️ Casey the london tube every day and it drives me all caps nuts before returning

⏹️ ▶️ Casey the iphone to their pocket or bag i’d say probably ninety per cent of the sixteen to twenty two year olds quit all of their apps

⏹️ ▶️ Casey and then flick up control center the control center panel and turn the brightness

⏹️ ▶️ Casey to zero before putting the phone to sleep what

⏹️ ▶️ Marco why because they want a thinner iphone

⏹️ ▶️ John that fits perfectly with the ah with the quitting all the apps which we have discussed at length

⏹️ ▶️ John on other shows and is mostly pointless and possibly detrimental depending on what’s going on

⏹️ ▶️ John turning the control center brightness down is exactly the same kind of like it makes no logical sense if you think

⏹️ ▶️ John about it because brightness must be he used as a battery and even though putting to sleep i feel better about turning the

⏹️ ▶️ John all the ay down cause it accidently wakes up in my pocket or the next time i wake it up it’s this is a bad idea people

⏹️ ▶️ John it’s like there’s no end to the number of things that people will do like putting chicken entrails or

⏹️ ▶️ John in a circle around their bed at night to make their phone charge faster or

⏹️ ▶️ John, Tiff Arment whatever there is no end to the things

⏹️ ▶️ John they will do like if if we could put more things in like control center and settings and stuff that

⏹️ ▶️ John seem to be power related before they put their phones to sleep that’s the best one because the screen is basically off when you

⏹️ ▶️ John put it to sleep and yet they still want to turn the brightness down and you know like the energy used by pulling

⏹️ ▶️ John up control centre is probably you know negates the energy they save by having the brightness

⏹️ ▶️ John down and meal a second before the hit the power button to put the thing to sleep

⏹️ ▶️ Marco but wait there is some validity here because if the notification comes in that causes the screen

⏹️ ▶️ Marco to light up it will then be at lower brightness for those like five seconds

⏹️ ▶️ John i know i understand yes i briefly on and yeah i know i know but like but seriously like the

⏹️ ▶️ John amount of time they send on the double tapping the home button and flicking those things up and the gpu cycles and

⏹️ ▶️ John energy like

⏹️ ▶️ John, Marco flick which

⏹️ ▶️ John like there it’s just this is not not to mention time which is a resource that is not

⏹️ ▶️ John renewable like this is not a good use of your time if you’re doing this please stop if you see your friends quitting

⏹️ ▶️ John apps try to convince them that is not the thing to do i really desperately hope it apple does like

⏹️ ▶️ John makes force quitting apps require like double key ignition like the nuclear

⏹️ ▶️ John launch code type things like makes it so much more cumbersome so that to actually force quit every single

⏹️ ▶️ John one of your applications would just take way too long and then that will force people to stop this as i think they’ll

⏹️ ▶️ John they’ll give up if it takes seventeen taps and wait in a the a tap and hold on in a force press to force quit

⏹️ ▶️ John one ap will they yeah i think i’ll just take too long like they won’t be able to put their phone away they’ll have

⏹️ ▶️ John to spend fifteen minutes then you know we talked about this and the other extreme is to just give them a button that makes

⏹️ ▶️ John all the pictures go a but doesn’t actually force quit anything but you still legitimately need a way to force quit apps on

⏹️ ▶️ John your phone so that has to exist it’s just that this is such a mess this this whole interface

⏹️ ▶️ John apple is partially to blame but so are people passing around sort of superstitions

⏹️ ▶️ John about what you should do to your phone and yes margo i saw your dig there yes apple and make phones with more battery

⏹️ ▶️ John we all agree

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah i mean that i’m not going to beat that horse to death today i’ll wait till they annouce the new phone

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, John but

⏹️ ▶️ John if they did you think it would stop these people from like turning their brains down and i don’t think it would because it’s not it’s not founded

⏹️ ▶️ John it’s not evidence based medicine as they say which as we as we call normally medicine

⏹️ ▶️ Marco well but you know if you know if if people weren’t always running out of battery

⏹️ ▶️ Marco ah they wouldn’t be so desperate for solutions and even if these solutions

⏹️ ▶️ Marco are fake or ineffective there is still a very clear demand here that customers are saying

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and have been saying for a very long time my battery doesn’t last long enough and therefore i’m

⏹️ ▶️ Marco going to seek out stupid tricks to make it last longer

⏹️ ▶️ John but the bad thing about these tricks is they do them like so everyone has had the battery run out at some

⏹️ ▶️ John point and the more you have around the more you’re gonna see how the superstition so there’s a truth to that right but the other thing

⏹️ ▶️ John is that like it runs out because they were out for a long day they played a lot of games there was a bug in the

⏹️ ▶️ John os or a bug in some ap that burned through their battery and that that triggers the seeking out of the you know ask

⏹️ ▶️ John asking other people in your tribe what do you to make this magical device not run out of battery and they tell you all these tricks and

⏹️ ▶️ John you you do these tricks religiously and the next day your battery doesn’t run out and you attribute the

⏹️ ▶️ John fact that your battery didn’t run out the fact you did all these tricks and say but you don’t need all that stuff say no i do these things

⏹️ ▶️ John and now my battery doesn’t run out like they don’t understand that the reason the batter ran out the day before had nothing to do with not doing those things

⏹️ ▶️ John it was a different situation so they every time they do these every day they go through and their battery doesn’t run out and

⏹️ ▶️ John they do all this stuff reinforces in their mind the idea of doing these things causes the battery not to run out which is not the case

⏹️ ▶️ John right and so there’s it’s almost impossible to commit some they should stop doing this as they like

⏹️ ▶️ John but when i do this it’s like lisa’s rock and the simpsons you know this rock keeps away tigers you know and

⏹️ ▶️ John it sounds rich how can the rock keep away tigers and lisa says you don’t see any tigers do you and then homer says lisa i’d like

⏹️ ▶️ John to buy that rock like that’s that’s how the

⏹️ ▶️ John, Marco human brain

⏹️ ▶️ John works so it’s impossible to convince people these things don’t work so i think the battery life and the iphone

⏹️ ▶️ John could stand improvement but for most people it lasts to normal sort of medium to

⏹️ ▶️ John light use day have you says it’s still not sufficient which is why you have battery cases and those are the days people run

⏹️ ▶️ John out of batteries and those are the days that drive them to seek out these things

⏹️ ▶️ Marco but you see but that’s see that’s that’s the problem here like we mentioned earlier in our in the camera discussion

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i was saying how like you know these new merrills cameras have especially like the high and sony ones

⏹️ ▶️ Marco have terrible battery life and on my sony i have done all sorts of stupid tricks to try

⏹️ ▶️ Marco to stretch the better life a little bit further because it just isn’t good enough and i have all like you know i keep the phone on aeroplane

⏹️ ▶️ Marco mode so i don’t use any the wifi features i have all these like all the screen turn off really fast and you know all this stuff like all

⏹️ ▶️ Marco these tricks to try to save a little bit of that of that power because it’s so scarce meanwhile i never

⏹️ ▶️ Marco once had to seek out a trick i had to save battery power on my slr because the battery was

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so ridiculously big and it didn’t use that much of it that it was just hardly ever a problem

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the solution to this problem is to fix the sim symptoms that cause people to seek

⏹️ ▶️ Marco out these solutions in the first place and i’m not like when people say like oh where can phones go they are

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so mature now i don’t know what phones can get better at really they can get better at this this is one

⏹️ ▶️ Marco big thing that has always been a problem with with almost all portable devices especially

⏹️ ▶️ Marco cell phones and i think it’s really time to start thinking about the problem differently it’s very clear

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that the way apple thinks about this problem is they have the way they they they they run these certain

⏹️ ▶️ Marco tests of like you know voice usage and light web browsing and everything but i think

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it’s increasingly clear that we keep coming up with really cool things we can do with these phones

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that use something or other that needs a lot of power whether it’s the g p s chip or the camera

⏹️ ▶️ Marco or the high end cpu speeds and maybe using the gp to do a bunch of cool three d stuff

⏹️ ▶️ Marco using a r composite and using advanced processing whatever the case may be we are coming up with things

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that we can do with these phones that just destroy the battery and along with the ones we already had things like you know turn by turn

⏹️ ▶️ Marco directions like that that slaughters the battery because you’re keeping g p s on i don’t think this makes for a good

⏹️ ▶️ Marco overall product that the story is the battle we will be good enough as

⏹️ ▶️ Marco long as you don’t really do much with it why should i be penalized for using it the way you know

⏹️ ▶️ Marco using all these great features that you’ve added and developed and and or that i’ve bought in the appstore

⏹️ ▶️ Marco or more likely taken in the astor gotten in the ap store um you know why is this ok

⏹️ ▶️ Marco why is the status quo and and why why is this considered good enough oh yeah

⏹️ ▶️ Marco well it’s totally normal for any non trivial use of your phone even

⏹️ ▶️ Marco if you just do trivial things for a long time during the day those battery life estimates are

⏹️ ▶️ Marco based on very light usage of your phone and having it off in your pocket most of the day

⏹️ ▶️ Marco while our phones are increasingly becoming our computers that’s on how people use computers people use computers more

⏹️ ▶️ Marco all day than that it’s like i feel like we our standards are too low both us as consumers

⏹️ ▶️ Marco our expectations and apple standards in this area are too low that we need to start thinking about like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco how amazing could the phone be if the battery was not the same

⏹️ ▶️ Marco as it was now was not just like fifteen per cent bigger what if it was four times bigger

⏹️ ▶️ Marco like how how would that change the way we can use these devices how would it change how how

⏹️ ▶️ Marco many of these stupid habits would people no longer need to do if the average

⏹️ ▶️ Marco person during the two years they owned their phone never ran on a battery or maybe it

⏹️ ▶️ Marco happened once you know like things would change dramatically but we are never going to

⏹️ ▶️ Marco get there if we keep making these little tiny incremental improvements because we’ve declared ten hours wireless

⏹️ ▶️ Marco web or whatever to be good enough

⏹️ ▶️ Casey well i think that we are there it’s just that we’re there by strapping backpacks to our phones and

⏹️ ▶️ Casey that’s why apple made the battery case that’s why mophie makes a killing with every new phone i

⏹️ ▶️ Casey agree with you by and large that we really should expect and ask for a little bit more juice on

⏹️ ▶️ Casey these phones and and i think we’ve talked all three of us have talked about this to death on prior episodes but really

⏹️ ▶️ Casey the the fix today is to strap a humpback or to turn your phone into a humpback

⏹️ ▶️ Casey phone and then the problem solved a real time follow up on the real pressing issue here

⏹️ ▶️ Casey which is the luna the really ridiculous habits of the youths of

⏹️ ▶️ Casey britain when your phone is in your pocket it will not

⏹️ ▶️ Casey light up at least on ios ten i just sent myself a push notification i had my finger

⏹️ ▶️ Casey mashed on the ambi light sensor and it did not light up

⏹️ ▶️ John yeah maybe maybe there’s chances where it could if it’s facing a certain direction maybe different o s as did like a lot of the superstition

⏹️ ▶️ John stuff is based on like maybe the current one doesn’t do they don’t they don’t again it’s not evidence based then updating it based

⏹️ ▶️ John on current scenarios and as we sat on pathos fourth quinton can actually cost you battery life if you’re just going to use that same appian

⏹️ ▶️ John and you’re causing it to launch from a fresh state over and over and over again it’s better to resume it it’s better to have it suspended and resume

⏹️ ▶️ John it better for your battery the thing you’re trying to save but i think this whole topic segues nicely

⏹️ ▶️ John into the action the first time in our topic list which is talking about the iphone seven rumors which mostly stuff that we

⏹️ ▶️ John talked about before but you know another topic we visited before is like oh this one looks like it’s going to be about

⏹️ ▶️ John the same size and shape as the iphone six and i assume the insides as

⏹️ ▶️ John they usually do will become slightly more power efficient in various ways so if it’s the same size as

⏹️ ▶️ John the iphone six the insides are more power efficient it should get better battery life right

⏹️ ▶️ John like this should be it’s not like when mark was talking about four times bigger but it seems like

⏹️ ▶️ John it could be potentially a change to the trend were from year to year battery life is basically

⏹️ ▶️ John the same they just you know basically like they they they they have a new phone but they make a little bit thinner and they

⏹️ ▶️ John try to you know the insides take less power but they use less but they put a smaller battery in it to make it thinner and they try to you

⏹️ ▶️ John know like the ipad they try to keep it around ten hours keep their stats around the same and vary some go up and some go down it’s

⏹️ ▶️ John not a smooth slope but for this is going to be the third year in a row with the same physical

⏹️ ▶️ John size phone i have to think that this has to have better battery life at least better much better better life than the

⏹️ ▶️ John six not just like a little bump in the graph but significantly better and if it doesn’t i wonder what they’re using

⏹️ ▶️ John like have they found a new way to suck up all that battery power because like

⏹️ ▶️ John it may be too much to ask as we have so many times before apple please make one fat phone like yeah don’t

⏹️ ▶️ John make all your phones fat but just make one fat phone why not make one fat one for the people who want lots of better

⏹️ ▶️ John and one fat laptop yeah exactly right but if they’re not going to do that this may be again one of

⏹️ ▶️ John the potential silver linings of the otherwise fairly unremarkable iphone seven from what we

⏹️ ▶️ John know from the rumors and potentially infuriating iphone seven with no headphone port is hey

⏹️ ▶️ John it could have better battery life than the sex and success in a way that people would notice they’ll still

⏹️ ▶️ John force quit all their aps and turn the screen brightness down but whatever

⏹️ ▶️ Marco no but it’s see that’s the thing like it’s not the way you get better battery life is

⏹️ ▶️ Marco by a dramatic change in the power efficiency of the components or by increasing the battery

⏹️ ▶️ Marco size that’s how that’s how this happens not by like you know not by like fifteen percent like if it’s fifteen percent

⏹️ ▶️ Marco more battery life that’s nice i’ll take it but that’s not going to change anybody’s behavior that’s not going to be a radical

⏹️ ▶️ Marco shift in what we can do with these devices that we couldn’t do before

⏹️ ▶️ John i can change new users behavior because if they never actually run out of battery they won’t seek out these tweaks

⏹️ ▶️ John like you said if you never get into a situation you run out and it could be that for huge philosophy or fifteen

⏹️ ▶️ John or fifteen percent more is enough to get them over the hump were like before their bet they better would have been

⏹️ ▶️ John dea and they would had an hour left until they get home and put it on the night stand and now it lasts that extra hour and

⏹️ ▶️ John has thirty minutes to spare after that so they feel like maybe they feel like i just made it maybe they have a little bit of anxiety

⏹️ ▶️ John but i did never actually literally run out of battery i think that’ll go a long way to helping and i really like

⏹️ ▶️ John three years same size like the components since i can get smaller too making room for more battery like

⏹️ ▶️ John all same form factor for three years i think if you add up all the small

⏹️ ▶️ John gains over those years the difference between the six and the seven is going to be huge different between success and

⏹️ ▶️ John the seven maybe not as huge but this is all predicated on something we’re not sure about which is

⏹️ ▶️ John they could have done the same thing with the be like oh we have a more power efficient process and we’ve

⏹️ ▶️ John you know reduced a number of chips and some of our chips are made on a smaller process than they used to be like the ancillary supporting

⏹️ ▶️ John ships so we do have a power drop let’s use that to crank the clock speed or let’s use that to add more

⏹️ ▶️ John cars to the g p u like we have no idea what’s inside the system on a chip so could be that everything i’m saying

⏹️ ▶️ John is not true and in fact they they basically use their budget of extra space and

⏹️ ▶️ John extra power to make this phone faster because that’s the only thing that i’ve heard about this phone besides

⏹️ ▶️ John the dual cameras on the supposedly on the big one that makes you it makes someone think that it would be better

⏹️ ▶️ John than the success is like well it’ll be faster because you know it i’ll have a better system on a chip on it and doesn’t

⏹️ ▶️ John everyone like faster and yes i do like faster just complaining about slow iphone last week and dual cameras

⏹️ ▶️ John might be neat but on the other hand they’ve taken away the headphone port and the thing looks the same so

⏹️ ▶️ John maybe that’s not enough

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that’s the thing i mean like from from what we know from rumors well know in quotes what the rumors say

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so far and what we’ve heard from various birdies and tipsters is basically that yeah

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it’s the same shape and size it’s a little bit lighter weight and it’s you know faster

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a lot faster supposedly and there was there was very briefly a macrumors repost of a story

⏹️ ▶️ Marco blah blah i like appeared in their feet and then was nowhere on their site but i say it of course

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that there was allegedly a lit deep bench test of the new of the new a ten

⏹️ ▶️ Marco ship and if it was real it showed roughly a fifty percent performance increase

⏹️ ▶️ Marco over the eight nine so that’s cool you know if that’s real and you know that kind of matches

⏹️ ▶️ Marco up kind of what we’ve been hearing so you know that’s it it is probably a lot faster and that’s great

⏹️ ▶️ Marco but if if things get more power efficient apple spends it basically like any gains they get

⏹️ ▶️ Marco in efficiency they spend it in other places and they keep roughly the same target battery life

⏹️ ▶️ Marco because they they think in general they’ve that they have good battery life and that’s where i think like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco no like we we need to work on that assumption there there was a great post on six colors a couple of years ago where

⏹️ ▶️ Marco jason basically went through and grafted the battery life over time by apple’s various testing

⏹️ ▶️ Marco metrics of iphones and ipads and the iphone graphis varies a little bit but

⏹️ ▶️ Marco they’re all kind of in the same range and the six plus comes out and it’s like a big jump up it

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it doesn’t include the s generation got too old and the funny thing is like the ipad battery life it’s just

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a straight line like it’s always ten hours they’ve changed no part of

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that because any advances they make in power efficiency et cetera

⏹️ ▶️ Marco they they basically spend by making the battery smaller or

⏹️ ▶️ Marco by increasing the power budget for things like a faster cpu so the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco apple is clearly you know like as jason put it in this article solving for x

⏹️ ▶️ Marco we like they’ve determined like a certain battery life to be this is good this is a good target

⏹️ ▶️ Marco we don’t really need to get much better than this so let any gains we make then we can make the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco devices thinner and lighter or whatever or make the cp s faster or whatever and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that this is the problem like i don’t see how we get off this treadmill basically like i see us continuing

⏹️ ▶️ Marco to make these incremental advantages the incremental advances over you know here and there like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco like you know next year supposedly we’re getting an oled screen and that’ll be a big power savings but

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is that is then going to go into making the phone thinner and lighter probably or you know putting other

⏹️ ▶️ Marco you know making other components use more power or whatever else like that’s probably going to happen instead because apple feels

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that this is good enough because if they didn’t feel this was good enough they would release a thicker one then you could buy for more with

⏹️ ▶️ Marco more

⏹️ ▶️ John battery power the thing about those graphs is apples controlling all aspects of them they control the product they

⏹️ ▶️ John also control the methodology of the measurement that’s true and i assume apple is adjusting the methodology because

⏹️ ▶️ John they do collect like all those stats and everything and what you were saying before is essentially telling apple

⏹️ ▶️ John apple you’re you have to change your methodology even more than you have been because people use your phones in a different way as

⏹️ ▶️ John they can do many more things like if people are reading twitter you know in two thousand eighty two thousand nine people

⏹️ ▶️ John are reading twitter on their phones it’s like it’s a table view full text and they’re scrolling it now people are snap chatting

⏹️ ▶️ John that is a whole different you know battery use sort of profile so

⏹️ ▶️ John i assume apple does update its methodology over time and based on a dice data

⏹️ ▶️ John that should say wow people are really using more power per minute of staring

⏹️ ▶️ John at their phone because the applications are using as you said are doing more interesting things so i would hope that they would update their

⏹️ ▶️ John methodology i can see a scenario where they keep that graph basically level but keep changing their methodology

⏹️ ▶️ John to say normal usage is now uses way more power than it used to and i think they must

⏹️ ▶️ John have been doing that already because it’s not as if normal usage on a three g s is the same as normal usage on on a six like

⏹️ ▶️ John they must be doing that it’s just you know again we we’re all saying that they’re they’re off the curve like they think everything

⏹️ ▶️ John is fine and they’re and they’re under maybe just under maybe under by a big amount and there are many ways they can solve and they don’t

⏹️ ▶️ John seem to be doing it if they’re but i still feel like they’re within shooting distance of it especially keeping the form factor

⏹️ ▶️ John the same for three years in a row and the faster c like fifty percent is a big jump uh yeah

⏹️ ▶️ John you know so you get the advantage of things like race to sleep where how can a faster sleep you help you

⏹️ ▶️ John save battery because it gets done with its computation goes back into low power mode faster right

⏹️ ▶️ John you know we’re all speculating we don’t know what the profile of this ship is they could burn all their extra energy on just more

⏹️ ▶️ John jeep eu chorus for all we know because they love to do that and it’s really easy to add them and they do make your games faster

⏹️ ▶️ John but

⏹️ ▶️ Marco but here here here’s here’s a problem though so much of modern computing you know and much of

⏹️ ▶️ Marco it with apple devices right right in the middle of it is based on this idea that we have to just conserve

⏹️ ▶️ Marco conserve conserve just sip power everywhere and never push anything too hard for too long the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco race to sleep is a big part of that what if we had so much power that we could actually

⏹️ ▶️ Marco use the cpu i know this is a radical

⏹️ ▶️ John concept that’s called a desktop computer and i have one

⏹️ ▶️ Marco yeah this is a rad hood concept i know but like like over the weekend i was um this

⏹️ ▶️ Marco past weekend i was getting some work done on my macbook pro i’m not playing games on it we’re getting some

⏹️ ▶️ Marco work on of the mac pro and i was running xcode and i was i was working on the mp three encode or doing some tests

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that we talked about last episode using xcode doing some bills and then occasionally having having like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco one minute or so burst of all four course being maxed out and then going back to ex code and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco code and going back and so you know it was moderate to heavy use not even i’m not even talking about like a handbrake

⏹️ ▶️ Marco transcode for two hours like i’m just talking like it would max out the course sometimes for a minute

⏹️ ▶️ Marco or so and then go back to moderate use of xcode this made this laptop that is not very old

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and that when you’re not doing much on it has like a ten hour quoted battery life have instead

⏹️ ▶️ Marco a four hour battery life and that sucks like it totally changes

⏹️ ▶️ Marco how to use it like when if i can use it around the around the house which i was doing like all over i mean we were we

⏹️ ▶️ Marco were upstate at at my in laws place so i was like you know lounging around

⏹️ ▶️ Marco not not being plugged in tied down anywhere like it was great but if you if you

⏹️ ▶️ Marco have to plug in like every few hours to boost that back up that’s a lot less useful and it’s a lot less

⏹️ ▶️ Marco compelling and wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to do that and here they are apple has basically

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i mean you know we’ll see what the new mac pros have in store but i’m guessing they’re not

⏹️ ▶️ Marco going to have twice the battery life i’m guessing they’re going to have about the same battery life and be thinner and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco lighter and that’s what people want and that’s fine i wish that wasn’t the only option cause right now like everything

⏹️ ▶️ Marco apple makes is a thin and light and thin lights are great for being thin and light they’re only ok for battery

⏹️ ▶️ Marco life a lot of customers have different needs and this is why like i i really

⏹️ ▶️ Marco i mean i guess i’ll stop harping on this after this but i just i really am sad to see that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco apple really keeps reducing the amount of choice we have we have we have more and more choice in

⏹️ ▶️ Marco areas that don’t matter like color and we have ever ever less choice

⏹️ ▶️ Marco on factors that are important to people like me things like battery life and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and high end specs and things like that and that worries me for

⏹️ ▶️ Marco my future happiness on this platform

⏹️ ▶️ Casey well but your your painting your concerns are the only ones that matter and

⏹️ ▶️ Casey apple’s clearly making these decisions based on on what all

⏹️ ▶️ Casey of the millions upon millions upon millions of iphone users want i do agree with

⏹️ ▶️ Casey you that twenty five to fifty percent more battery life i think would make every single iphone

⏹️ ▶️ Casey user happier but with that said i don’t think

⏹️ ▶️ Casey doubling the thickness and maybe that’s aggressive i don’t know but but even even a hundred and

⏹️ ▶️ Casey twenty five percent of the thickness now that we’re all used to these little slivers of of metal i don’t

⏹️ ▶️ Casey know if that would make a lot of people happy and i think a lot of people would look at that and go oh even even if

⏹️ ▶️ Casey the same person that just went oh would would really love to have fifty percent more battery life the

⏹️ ▶️ Casey first reaction would be oh kind of like if they don’t know remove the headphone jack or something um

⏹️ ▶️ Casey but i’m i’m torn because i think i think to some degree you’re

⏹️ ▶️ Casey projecting a little bit what your personal needs and desires are and and saying these are the only ones

⏹️ ▶️ Casey the matter because i guess what you’re human and since i have similar wants and needs for my devices i tend to

⏹️ ▶️ Casey agree with you but i don’t think we should throw everything out and say

⏹️ ▶️ Casey oh this is b s and they’re not really they’re not really doing what anyone wants because i think most people do just want

⏹️ ▶️ Casey a thin light phone that lasts all day the problem is that i don’t think many people can get to

⏹️ ▶️ Casey that last all day part the way it is now and john it alluded to earlier said earlier if it was fifteen

⏹️ ▶️ Casey per cent better maybe that would give you over the hump well yeah that that’s probably true

⏹️ ▶️ Casey for a lot of people but in my case i’m i’m probably

⏹️ ▶️ Casey at between ten and thirty per cent at the end of most days and i think another

⏹️ ▶️ Casey ten or fifteen per cent if i ended the day at between let’s say twenty and forty per cent

⏹️ ▶️ Casey that wouldn’t make me stop stressing about my battery life if i ended the day at fifty

⏹️ ▶️ Casey per cent all the time like i did on my watch then i would not be stressed by battery life any more

⏹️ ▶️ John in a the personal problem is the personality

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey tree and one

⏹️ ▶️ John percentage to become anxious because we all know people who like use their phone with a little battery meter and the red and they’re fine with

⏹️ ▶️ John it and other people when they get close to fifty percent same thing with gas tanks by the way he i

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey asked

⏹️ ▶️ John fifty my wife asked me the other day she was talking about the light in the dashboard and like what light she’s like you know light

⏹️ ▶️ John comes on when you’re runing along gas like i’ve never seen that light and neither should you what are you doing

⏹️ ▶️ John, Marco you know that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco light existed but like you know casey like i’m not arguing that apple should make products to

⏹️ ▶️ Marco fit me period and ignore what everyone else wants i do wish there was more choice and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco even if that choice wasn’t perfect for me you know right now like you know the the way apple targets

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the battery life and and other factors but you know i think it’s the big one the way they target

⏹️ ▶️ Marco this you basically have an entire product line where everything has roughly

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the same battery life or you know or fairly close or and

⏹️ ▶️ Casey we talk about the laptops we talk about the phones because the phones if you really want it if you really want battery life

⏹️ ▶️ Casey go plus club

⏹️ ▶️ Marco not if the screens on the plus has way better battery life if you’re talking on it or if it’s playing

⏹️ ▶️ Marco music with the screen off but when the screen’s on it isn’t that much better it’s it’s is i think it’s a little

⏹️ ▶️ Marco bit better but it’s not that much better um so you know a lot of these areas where where like using the screen of

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the gp or like lot a lot of these things i actually wouldn’t be tremendously better but that and that that

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is fair that is you know it a is a lot bigger phone and you know i would i wouldn’t mind if my

⏹️ ▶️ Marco success was thicker anyway apple has spent the last few years basically reducing

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the amount of choice we have in the areas or in in in something like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco the iphone where now we now we have more choice than the iphone but we have a lot of choice in in ways

⏹️ ▶️ Marco that maybe don’t matter as much and one of the big things that like everyone

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is so so often needs is more battery life and we don’t really have a choice there the only choice we

⏹️ ▶️ Marco have is a crappy choice of bolting on additional battery packs to it like external which

⏹️ ▶️ Marco sucks because they are they have to have you know all the overhead of being an

⏹️ ▶️ Marco external peripheral their own casing their own circuitry their own charging their own ports

⏹️ ▶️ Marco their own cables or connectors like all the all the crap that’s overhead that isn’t just the additional battery

⏹️ ▶️ Marco so that is a crappy solution and i hope that is not apple’s long term only plan and

⏹️ ▶️ Marco finally i will close this by there’s a great line in our chat room a few minutes ago from

⏹️ ▶️ Marco chris l t d saying what’s the point of having consumer and pro lines if the consumer

⏹️ ▶️ Marco and pro lines are basically the same thing the consumer

⏹️ ▶️ John lines get updated

⏹️ ▶️ Marco oh my god that’s amazing thanks led to our three sponsors

⏹️ ▶️ Marco this week a hover indocin and betterment and we will

⏹️ ▶️ Marco see you next week

Ending theme

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment now the show is over they didn’t even mean to begin because

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment it was

⏹️ ▶️ Casey accidental

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment oh it was accidental john didn’t do any research

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment marco and casey wouldn’t let him because it was accidental

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment it was accidental that you can find the shona at

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment p dot fm and if you’re into twitter

⏹️ ▶️ John you can follow them c a

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment s e y l i assess that’s k c s m a r c

⏹️ ▶️ Tiff Arment a c u s siracusa is accidental

Post-show: Google Duo :(

Chapter Post-show: Google Duo :( image.

⏹️ ▶️ Casey so john and i shared a private moment before the show is it something that you need

⏹️ ▶️ Casey to keep private well no now i’m going to tell tell the whole world about our private moment we used

⏹️ ▶️ Casey google duo together

⏹️ ▶️ Marco is that the thing where people can show obscene pictures to other people who didn’t agree to it

⏹️ ▶️ John yep that’s the one

⏹️ ▶️ Casey yes you could choose to do that if you so

⏹️ ▶️ John desire is that whole idea is that it shows what’s on the you know before you even accept the call

⏹️ ▶️ John you see video from the other verse i think there was something about that when i was doing it like only if they’re

⏹️ ▶️ John in your contacts already that happens or there’s some when we talked about it it was after google i o and they they demoed

⏹️ ▶️ John the future and they didn’t memories that they didn’t say anything about they need to just say a sentence and said of course you can turn this off or of

⏹️ ▶️ John course it only works in ex and y situations but instead they said nothing and just presented it as look isn’t this great

⏹️ ▶️ John when you pick it up before you hit the button that says yes except this video call you’re already seeing

⏹️ ▶️ John video from them and it’s like no no one thought about it for two seconds that’s terrible unless unless

⏹️ ▶️ John there’s some kind of limitations and i’m not sure what they are i’m still not sure what travis cases call each other

⏹️ ▶️ John and we don’t care um yeah

⏹️ ▶️ Casey but i don’t think i saw you before i agreed to the call i thought that future

⏹️ ▶️ Casey was android only

⏹️ ▶️ John what it said there was a thing that came up on my screen that i thought that i tapped like like

⏹️ ▶️ John a typical computer as you tap it away before you read the thing it was like oh keep in mind that you’re going to be on video is that

⏹️ ▶️ John okay and and it was the button was like okay got i it unfortunately we tried this like just before we came on

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey here you have your phone

⏹️ ▶️ John with you yeah it’s all right i’ll try it right now here we go i’m going to do your little

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey right said do you want my phone

⏹️ ▶️ Casey do you want my phone to be to be locked to be in the duo ap how do you want me to do this

⏹️ ▶️ John it doesn’t matter video call call you

⏹️ ▶️ Casey the phone is okay incoming call from john syracuse

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John the same

⏹️ ▶️ Casey notification and okay i do see you do you see me but before you had accept oh god

⏹️ ▶️ Casey oh god sorry no i did not see you before i accept a muted what the hell

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John i is

⏹️ ▶️ John say settings knock knock on it that’s what it’s talking about

⏹️ ▶️ John knock now

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey yeah yeah yeah let me let me let me try you let me down

⏹️ ▶️ John your he accept all right

⏹️ ▶️ Casey wait are you calling me or am i calling you you

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John can call me

⏹️ ▶️ Casey all right let me try calling communication smile knock knock us on god i

⏹️ ▶️ John say that’s the thing of saying telling you to

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey smile your i video and

⏹️ ▶️ John i see you right now and i have not yet accepted oh

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey then i might get in a decline

⏹️ ▶️ John i can decline or accept an i’m going to decline you

⏹️ ▶️ Casey i will then wait wait go the other way one more time i want to see this now

⏹️ ▶️ John yeah so the future totally exists here we

⏹️ ▶️ Casey go this is super interesting okay so i can see you right now you

⏹️ ▶️ Casey can’t see me now oh interesting i am declining you cousin amber

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John so this is

⏹️ ▶️ John the exact feature we were talking about the fact that

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey my

⏹️ ▶️ John mistake my mistake before casey had decided whether he wants to accept this call he is forced to see me

⏹️ ▶️ John and there that’s the the the feature is called knock knock and i think if you turn that setting off it would

⏹️ ▶️ John you know anyway i mostly want to use it just to see how is it compared to face time because that’s that’s the role of this thing it’s basically

⏹️ ▶️ John cross platform facetime if you can’t do face time with your relative because they all have android phones because you have an android phone

⏹️ ▶️ John and they have iphones or whatever if everybody gets google do then you can do essentially the same

⏹️ ▶️ John stuff as face time a cross platform is out worrying about getting everyone in your family to use

⏹️ ▶️ John iphones or getting everyone in your family to use android and whatever the predecessor app to this was if there was one so i so

⏹️ ▶️ John i think that’s good the brief time that we used it the one feature that was annoying both of us was that

⏹️ ▶️ John the little window that shows you like shows you yourself like this is what the other person is seeing right now

⏹️ ▶️ John it is cropped to a circle which is infuriating because of all the things we were showing each other i was

⏹️ ▶️ John trying to show in like my files box in the basement and we were comparing our files boxes this is what we ended up showing

⏹️ ▶️ John a other anyway i couldn’t tell i couldn’t tell that the whole file box was in the frame because

⏹️ ▶️ John i had i was holding my phone in portrait orientation because that’s basically the orientation of the files box and i wanted to get

⏹️ ▶️ John the whole thing in the shot but because the preview was circular i could never tell if it was entirely in the frame

⏹️ ▶️ John now you can’t tap the circle which switches it and now all of a sudden the video i’m sending takes up

⏹️ ▶️ John my whole phone and casey’s video is in a tiny little circle and that helps me frame things but it’s not

⏹️ ▶️ John really an improvement now he’s in a little circle and i want to see him so i feel like this is a solved problem make the preview

⏹️ ▶️ John of the video the other person is seeing the same aspect ratio and like show the full image

⏹️ ▶️ John so i know what the frame boundaries are because the circle is i felt like i was looking through a little porthole and constantly trying

⏹️ ▶️ John to like make sure he was seeing the whole thing but other than that the video quality looked good we didn’t

⏹️ ▶️ John have any disconnections that work fine the little ring tone that you kind of heard over my microphone depending on how much marco

⏹️ ▶️ John edits out sounds nice and pleasant so i mostly give dual thumbs up except for the knock knock feature being

⏹️ ▶️ John on by default and possibly existing at all and the circular i didn’t think it

⏹️ ▶️ John was

⏹️ ▶️ Casey done by default i thought i had to turn it on maybe i’m wrong about that but i thought

⏹️ ▶️ John i think maybe on first launch it says that little like i said the thing that i swept away without even looking at it

⏹️ ▶️ John the thing i hit it was like okay got it i think it was telling you about knock knock just so you’re aware this knock na

⏹️ ▶️ John thing is on i think the only option was okay got it but i can’t go through the first

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey launch well though

⏹️ ▶️ Casey what i saw was what you saw because i had only received a call i had not placed one and it was just telling

⏹️ ▶️ Casey you hey right now you’re actually visible so you know don’t do anything stupid

⏹️ ▶️ Casey but i had thought in settings where there is absolutely a switch to flip for knock knock

⏹️ ▶️ Casey on or off i thought i had expressly gone in there and turned it on but if you don’t remember doing that

⏹️ ▶️ Casey perhaps i’m remembering

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John now

⏹️ ▶️ John i definitely need to do that the first i’m actually we should see so turn knock knock off on your end and then i’m

⏹️ ▶️ John going to call you one more time because i think the setting applies to your

⏹️ ▶️ Casey ending knock now

⏹️ ▶️ Casey don’t

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John you

⏹️ ▶️ John wish you had the

⏹️ ▶️ Marco solar oh i’m i’m so upset that i missed this okay i am prepared

⏹️ ▶️ Casey for you to knock on

⏹️ ▶️ John me what did you just didn’t you just instagram story what did you enter a store i think you interm story the the

⏹️ ▶️ John the screenshot of your windows in the booting

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey yeah okay i am

⏹️ ▶️ Casey getting an incoming video call i see nothing i just see a screen

⏹️ ▶️ John yeah so so basically you’re controlling it not what you send but what you receive

⏹️ ▶️ Casey okay so wait so with me having knock knock off i’m now going to call you

⏹️ ▶️ Casey can you see me at this point i’m twisting my phone back and forth just to show you that something’s moving

⏹️ ▶️ John no and in fact it just shows a blank screen

⏹️ ▶️ Casey i like yeah that’s basically what i saw so apparently if either of us has knocked knock off then

⏹️ ▶️ Casey it doesn’t it doesn’t

⏹️ ▶️ John happen yet so we just need to have that off by default or mean make people more aware of it

⏹️ ▶️ John in first lunch or anyway who knows i get regular people won’t mind it but it just seems like you

⏹️ ▶️ John won’t mind it until the first time you do mind it and then you’ll be like oh i don’t do

⏹️ ▶️ Casey this did you not did it quiz you after the fact as to whether or not

⏹️ ▶️ Casey the call was good did you notice that

⏹️ ▶️ John it did not quiz me no quizzes

⏹️ ▶️ Casey oh interesting i got on mine um what did this say hold on one

⏹️ ▶️ Casey second i took a screen shot of it ah this is a terrible screen shot that i won’t be able to put in the show us because

⏹️ ▶️ Casey i look like an idiot but how is it called quality skip unhappy face bad or happy face good

⏹️ ▶️ Casey actually i’ll take it i’ll crop just that little dialogue me put that man shane

⏹️ ▶️ Marco can i skip this entire topic

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Casey no can

⏹️ ▶️ Casey i put

⏹️ ▶️ Marco an

⏹️ ▶️ Casey unhappy face on it if you’d like or you could you know what you should do is i’ll i

⏹️ ▶️ Casey will put this uh this image in the show notes and you can just like sketch red

⏹️ ▶️ Casey circle the bad one how about

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John that is that what that means you happy

⏹️ ▶️ John what is what is it called pinpoint now i forget

⏹️ ▶️ Casey we’ve been using we’ve been talking about this for a minute and a half we talked about photography for twenty minutes

⏹️ ▶️ Casey more than that and you’re already getting grumble he doesn’t have the a install he

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John should have been stolen right now he should have been a

⏹️ ▶️ Casey cool kid like

⏹️ ▶️ Marco us it’s so far you have not given it a ring endorsement in my opinion

⏹️ ▶️ John do you have family that doesn’t have iphones that you would like to face time

⏹️ ▶️ Marco with

⏹️ ▶️ Casey no well see

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John that’s the thing we

⏹️ ▶️ Casey do have as i’ve talked about many times in the past my whole family is all ios aaron’s whole family

⏹️ ▶️ Casey except aaron is all android and there have been times that we would really like

⏹️ ▶️ Casey to video chat with aaron’s mom or actually my grandmother has

⏹️ ▶️ Casey a um some sort of android phone that’s i believe expressly designed for senior citizens so

⏹️ ▶️ Casey there’s i think the whatever physical buttons are on there are very large and and i think that it’s

⏹️ ▶️ Casey it’s been sim over simplified and all the fonts are gigantic by default well anyway

⏹️ ▶️ Casey next time i’m around her i hope i will be able to put duo on her phone

⏹️ ▶️ Casey even though it’s ancient and then we would be able to video chat with her it’s not a jitterbug but it’s along

⏹️ ▶️ Casey those lines just get her an ipad i’ve thought about it but i don’t know it’s just one more thing for her to

⏹️ ▶️ Casey manage so anyway so i’m excited about this i completely agree with john

⏹️ ▶️ Casey that the circular um little porthole into yourself is freaking terrible i

⏹️ ▶️ Casey do like that you can tap into your own image and bring it up full screen like john had said because there’d

⏹️ ▶️ Casey be times i’ve wanted to do that in facetime and i can’t it handled rotation just like facetime does which is a good

⏹️ ▶️ Casey thing that’s a compliment um and the video quality was great dials instantly

⏹️ ▶️ Casey when i was video chatting with john on the show moments ago it seemed like there was very very

⏹️ ▶️ Casey low latency mean all good in my book i approve

⏹️ ▶️ Casey but i would certainly use face time as my default modus opera and

⏹️ ▶️ Casey i and then if for some reason i need to video shot with an android user then that’s what i do i was for

⏹️ ▶️ Casey i

⏹️ ▶️ Marco just get different friends

⏹️ ▶️ Marco, Casey different

⏹️ ▶️ Casey family too i try

⏹️ ▶️ Casey, John to

⏹️ ▶️ John keep you you can you can pick your nose you can pick

⏹️ ▶️ John, Casey but

⏹️ ▶️ John um yeah i’m going to keep on my phone because i keep all sorts of apps on my phone i really ned to go through and clean stuff out but

⏹️ ▶️ John i’ll probably keep it

⏹️ ▶️ Marco cool
