- why don't you join a gym or something? - luke, leia, go to your rooms. - aren't they a littleold for that, hunnie? - oh, mellody. - playing with toys again, are we? - it's nothing. - you know, they wouldn't put me in charge of dreamworks studios ifi couldn't solve problems. tell me the truth, sweetie.

what's wrong? - abrams. - [j.j. voiceover] director'slog, production day 2013-7.15 i've just embarked on my new mission, star wars, episode vii. our first production meeting is scheduled to take place--(alarm going off) (phone clicks) hello, who is it?

- hey, j.j., it's george, george lucas. - george. it's so great to hear from you. what's up? - well, i just wantedto say congratulations. how are things going-- - thanks george. now don't you worry yourself,

i got everything under control. - did you get the box of notes i sent you? - i certainly did. and i'll definitely take allof it into consideration. - great, so, i was thinking (knocking) (villainous music)- j.j., where have you been? - busy, kathleen, busy. - the meeting is starting.

now. - really sorry, george, i gotta jet. may the force be with you. (dial tone humming) (clears throat) - hello everyone. welcome to our first meetingfor our star wars vii. i'm so glad to have some of youback from my star trek team. as well as our veterans from star wars.

now, may i present, head producer and new president of lucasfilm, ms. kathleen kennedy. (applauding) our goal is to reinvent star wars, like it has never been seen before. i want to hear yourthoughts, please anyone. - well, there is noquestion that the people are gonna want to seeluke, leia, and han again. - true, but, how aboutsome new characters?

like, a storm trooper, i've always wanted to seewho's under those helmets. - no way, kid. george was always very adamantabout not putting a face to the dark side. - actually, i kinda like that idea. but what about some brand new droids, like one that rolls around or something. - no.

- hey everyone, all ideas are valid, so, let's just-- - you know, i really thinkwe need to call george. he would know what to do. - i don't know, george sort of lost it when he made the prequels. - hey, george is thecreator of this whole thing, so how about a littlerespect for the franchise. - maybe so, but peoplewant something new now.

something fresh, like whatwe did with star trek. (chattering) - now, hold on for a sec. - let us show some respect. - wait, are you with us? - play anymore because--- think i have a big mouth? - i'm a director, not a therapist. - quiet, everyone. now i know some of youhave worked with george,

and others haven't. but he's retired now, and like it or not wehave to make this work. so, are we all clear on that? (resume chattering) i have a bad feeling about this. (melancholy music) - dad, did you hear what i said? - yes, leia, so when do you start?

- don't worry leia, there are plenty of other jobs out there. - that's okay, i'll find something. - by the way dad, you should go see j.j.'snew star trek movie, into darkness. it's so epic. - oh, really? good for him.

- you should be really happyhe's redoing star wars. - stop it, luke. mellody, how are things overat dreamworks these days? - really busy. our new film is coming out this week and everyone's workingovertime, i'm just-- - hello kathleen? it's george. listen, i know you're busy,but i just want to see

how things are coming along over there. give me a call back when you get a chance. - george, can i see you for a minute? (heels clattering) what are we gonna do about this? - nothing dear. i'm fine. - that's not good enough. i have a lot of responsibilities

and i am basically planningour wedding by myself. and your kids, theyneed you to be present. - i love you - i know, but what about star wars? (exciting, anticipatory music) - and with preproductionfor star wars vii under way, i now present the man of the hour, j.j. abrams. (cheering and applauding)

(crowd chanting) - hey, san diego.(crowd cheers) so great to be here. thank you everybody for coming, you truly are the best fans. - now we'll take some of your questions. - so, j.j., are theregonna be any lens flares? - (forces laugh) very funny. but you know, lens flaresactually give the environment

a much more realistic-- - boo, lens flares! (crowd booing) - next question, please. - so, j.j., do you like star wars better, or star trek? - well, they're both great franchises, that i am honored to be apart of. - but which one j.j., which is better?

- uh, you can't really compare the two-- - [kathleen] star wars. j.j. and i both love star wars. (crowd cheering and jeering) next question. - mr. abrams, how much of an influence was gene roddenberry onyour star trek films? - gene roddenberry'soriginal star trek series certainly laid the foundation,

but we had to make certainchanges in order to move forward. - what are you gonnachange about star wars? - i'm glad you brought that up, because we've got somethingthat you're all gonna love. we now present to you, thenew star wars vii lightsaber. - [woman] what is that? (confused chattering) - that is not my lightsaber. - well, i know it mightcome as a surprise,

but, overtime you'll see-- (gasps) that is not my lightsaber! - george, this is not the time for this. - this man has no considerationfor what i've created. he doesn't know the firstthing about my vision. - you're a fraud, j.j.! - go back to star trek. - it's a trap!

- oh yeah, well at leastmy vision won't require me to go back and changeeverything in 20 years. (angry chattering) - you haven't seen the last of me! - i'm not afraid of you, george. - you will be. you will be. (ominous music) (tense, anxious music)(jeering)

(tense, anxious music) (booing) (thumps) (yelling and jeering) (whirring) (groans) (villainous laughing) (tense, foreboding music) - fascinating.

the force is not strong with you. (cat purring) - j.j., we need to talk. - mellody, you don't understand. star wars is my life. i mean, was. - well, i have a life, too. it's been five years, george,

and i can't wait for you anymore. you need to decide, what's it gonna be? - i had a meeting withdisney this morning. and they've asked me to startlooking for a new director. - what? how could they do this to me? - i can't do this anymore. (sniffles) i just can't. (emotional, dramatic music)

- mellody. come back, please. - george, it's all george's fault. he's turned everyone against me! help me, kathleen, you're my only hope. - i am so sorry j.j., but it's out of my hands now. i'm sorry. (door clicks)

(thuds) (despairing music) (villainous music) - abrams! - lucas! (tense music) (shoes clattering) - [j.j.] i've been expecting you. - i know.

- i find your effortsto be highly illogical. - you're destroying my life's work. - you have done that yourself! and now you're destroying mine! - the time has come to end this. (light saber hissing) (laughs) - you're no match for me, old man. - you underestimate the power of the fans.

(light sabers hissing) - is that all you got? feel the wrath of my trekkies. energize! (high pitched humming) (foreboding music) and our phasers, george, they're not set to stun. engage!

- attack! (yelling)(phasers firing) (light saber hissing)(phaser firing) (frantic, anxious music) - when i left you, i was but the student. now i am the director. - only, a director of evil, jeffrey. (grunts) (light saber hissing)(phasers firing)

(yells) (groaning and yelling) - it's all your faultmy team is falling apart and the fans hate me! - and i've lost everything because of you. the force is strong with me. (force humming) you failed your mission, jeffrey. - i find your lack of faith disturbing.

- this ends, now! (light sabers hissing)(grunting) - you.. will be.. assimilated. resistance.. is.. futile! - [man] stop! fear's the path to the dark side. fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate. hate leads to suffering.

- gene? gene roddenberry? how are you here? - the universe is quitefascinating, my old friend. let's just say i managedto beam down for a visit. you know, when i created star trek, i didn't expect it to last for 50 years, and yet, here we are. - it is an honor, sir.

- it's good to meet you, too, son. after i left this realm,you gave my dreams new life. but, just as george couldnot have made star wars without my creation, youcould not have made star trek without his. you need each other forboth our dreams to live on. george, you've been given achance to live your own life. i was not always the bestfather because of star trek, but you can be.

trust your feelings, george. star trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity when we begin to appreciateour differences and ideas. and in life, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few because the force bindsall of us together. only together can we ever hopeto bring peace to the galaxy. (light sabers extinguishing)

good. - gene, come back! we need you here. - don't worry, i will be. live long and prosper. (uplifting music) (hopeful music) - thank you george, for everything. - there's been an awakening,

and it's you. - but i'm not the director anymore. they've already been looking-- - don't worry about disney,i'll take care of them. you just take care of star wars for me. - i will. - and j.j., the forcewill be with you always. (gentle, hopeful music) (faint applauding)

(bells tolling) - make it so. action! (robotic beeping) (trumpets blaring) (exciting, adventurous music) (robotic whirring) (upbeat, triumphant music) - [gene] space, the final frontier.

these are the adventures ofgeorge lucas and j.j. abrams. their new mission, toexplore strange new galaxies, far, far away, and to become the heroesthey've always imagined. to boldly go, where nofilmmakers have gone before. (joyful, uplifting music)

sony blu ray player


christian trozinski: hello and welcomedear viewers of digitalfernsehen.de to a new video special. today, i want to show you three very special tvs, namely we have on the left sidethe 75-inch sony kd75x9405c, in the middle the samsung 65js9590 and on the right side thepanasonic 55cxw804. why we show just these verydisplays here in combination has a simple reason, because all these tvsare direct led lcds

with local dimming, that means, all three tvs featurea full-screen led backlight and individual sectors can be controlled independently in the brightness,in order to increase the contrast. the second characteristic is that allthree tvs are compatible to the new hdr standard. hdr means high dynamic range and will be available, for example, via the streaming servicesamazon instant video, netflix,

but also on the uhd blu-ray from the end of the year on, that means, it is no longer just a matter of having as many pixels as possible, but it is a matter of coveringa brightness range as large as possible. a much, much larger brightness range, as it is the case with the current video signals. now, some might ask:why have you omitted lgs oled tvs here? the reason is simple:

the information comes directly from lgand is therefore not our presumption: the current generation of lg's oleds is not fully compatible to hdr.this involves the newly introduced eg9609 models. these will get an hdr-update, however, this only applies to the online streaming andrepresentation via the usb media player, lg itself has informed us,that via hdmi input hdr is not supported by the tvs.

the second problem with the oled tvsis the image brightness, that means, we have here abrightness range of approximately 130 nits for full-screen image display, up to 400 nits in the luminosity of small details. this is insufficient for the new hdr standard, there will be delivered up to 1000 nits, or the material will be mastered in up to 1000 nits brightness. this provides in principle that thetv you got at home

should be able to manage approximately these 1000 nits. subjectively, we believe,that oled has no problem to process the hdr signal, but that's not really the intention, because we could already examine many, many hdr prototypes in the laboratories of the tv manufacturers that run up to 4000 (!) nits, and the image impression is justcompletely different from an oled, converting the signal and outputs it in 400 nits. the performance of the three tvs we have here

differ, of course, substantially, because they have also different price points. we now just start with the screen on the right, the cxw804 of panasonic, which from 55 inches on provides a direct led backlight. the 50-inch model gets along with an edge-led lighting yet. here are brightnesses achieved up to 580/600 nits. the direct led local dimming

operates in estimated 16 zones. this was not quite easy to analyze this really one hundred percent, but the backlight control just gives the impression thata distinction is made between left-right, practically two columns plus eight lines. so, it is relatively easy for the tvto darken black bars, but the left-right subdivisionis very, very rough. if you, for example, display a small object in the middle thecomplete screen width is illuminated.

the tv in the center is thesuhd flagship of samsung. here, top brightnesses up to1,000 nits are achieved, so far more than with the panasonic. in the color-calibrated mode about 900 nits. for this display it is relatively easyalso to increase the detail contrast, because here we got 150 differentdimming zones. the dimming runs comparatively filigree. the 78-inch version of this tvhas 240 dimming zones. the test model is unfortunately no longer here,but we were able to test it already

and could detect 240 dimming zones. even converted to the screen size you then just have to say that the 78-inch version of the js9590 has therewith the currently best local dimming control. but the drawback is that the '78 by no meanshas the luminosity of the '65. left we have the already mentionedx9405c of sony in 75 inch. here gigantic peak brightness are achieved even in the color-calibrated mode. here we manage around 1,300 nits and the local dimming workshere in about 84 zones,

that means, we have detected here 14 columns and 6 lines where it is dimmed. at the beginning let's look at the black level performance of the tvs. the special thing about this test image is, that we here have a very extensive image display and that the signal electronics can interfere with. at the moment you see the correctrepresentation of this image area, that means, we have here a gray boxsurrounded by a black picture frame. to bring the black level performanceacross to you properly, i now switch off the ambient lightand set the camera

into overexposure, that means, the box in the middle will appear very, very bright to you. i think now it is relatively difficult for you to see which display, in this particular case, provides the better black level performance. in any case, the panasonic on the right shows a low lightening, due to the dimming in only two columns. that means, this rectangle in the middle causes even at such an image forslight brightening in deep black. to the eye it is still obvious,â that the samsung in this case

shows a slight brighteningin deep black, too, while sony comparatively wellreduces this brightening and shows for the mere perception the best black level performance. so if we use here a very extensive image display, this signal processing and this led control seems subjectively to be the best with the sony. in this picture here i can show you well how bright the displays are compared to our room lighting.

at the moment i set the exposure so, that you can understandour room lighting very well, how bright it is now actually in the test room. you notice already that the image brightnessin all three tvs is now too much for our camera, not for our eyes. we can recognize here in the test lab all details without any problems, but not our camera. i have to stop down here now. now you can see all the details in thepictures, you also note,

that our camera sensor reacts completely differently to the light generation of the samsung tv compared to sony and panasonic, that means, we have here always this typical blue violet staining, which is never visible to the naked eye. what is secondly visible is

that samsung, although the tv is very very bright,reduces this optical contrast or this surface brightness more than, for example, panasonic and sony. the sony is in the surface brightnessby far the brightest tv, but then comes alreadythe cxw804 by panasonic, while samsung prefers to automatically dim down the imagewhen extensive images are shown. by comparison samsung still reaches

about 400 nits at this image,panasonic nearly 500 nits, sony 600 nits. i want to demonstrate here, how the number of led zones affects the dimming effect.we have a full black background and now some information displayed on the screen. i will now again turn the light off. here you can see two things well: the text on the samsung and on the sony

appears overexposed at the moment,suggesting that the image brightness of both tvs is better. but to the naked eye here the advantage of this suhd-local dimming solution is obvious, because there is just a relativelyslight halo effect around the text, but a very, very brilliant display. that means, the brightness is now onthe suhd clearly much better than on the sony, so you just have to say thatvery, very small details

are more brilliant and have a higher contrast on the suhd, while on the sony also areas around the text are brightened considerably. here you can clearly see, that this little square, too is most brilliant on the suhd. even with this size is the suhd stillthe most brilliant

and from this point on, now thesony solution scores points, that means, now the sony tv is more brilliantand the samsung tv already dims down. what's quite interesting is the way,the local dimming is modulated via the signal level.i just show you here a very, very dark illuminated area and you can see here, i think,very nice on the samsung, how around those areas of the symbols such fields are generated.

these fields you can see, if for example in a movie a subtitle appears. then you realize that kind ofbrightness overdrive. this is also recognizable with the sony tv, however, significantly reduced, that means, a question to ask would be, how often or how clearly can theintervention of the local dimming be seen? then we'll have to say, it is a bit more discreet

on the sony tv, that means, you more rarely notice how this dimming works, whereas with the suhd of samsung, precisely because these small details are revealed so tremendously brilliant, such effects can occur more often, where you realize where thislocal dimming takes place. you have always to keep in mind: it really is here acontrast enhancement via local dimming zones.so you don't have, so to say,

a pixel perfect brightness generation, as is the case with oled, but no matter how many zones there are, in the end it is always a certain area, in which the brightness is adjusted differently and finally is as it were a compromise. here we can once again look at the overallbrilliance, that meansthe color brilliance and the brightness. here you could already tell,that the sony with its enormous peak brightness is so bright now,that we even at

completely dimmed recording can no longer represent these details without overexposure. the difference in brightness is just extreme, even compared to asamsung suhd tv. here we have a scene fromthe movie "interstellar". i'm going to try again,to turn off the light, to give an impression,how the black level performance acts in the movie mode.when we here use the complete

exposure, our camera provides, then you can very well see, that the panasonic on the right shows a comparativelybrightened black level performance. now it gets quite interestingin this constellation with the stars and outer spaceit's just even for the 150 zones of the suhd simply no longer possible, to make a clear distinction. the brightness information are now so filigreeand so close to each other, that even these 150 zones are not sufficient,to draw the universe pitch black now. it is recognizable now

that the image display converge highly compared to the sony tv. only in this bubble,which is there, this black hole, you can recognizes differences in brightness.as i said, we are here in overexposure.if i dim down now, you notice that in the picturenothing will burn out, but it is really difficult, in practice always to say,"the samsung has the better black level performance"

because it depends on the image. since the sony of course has a much, much higher peak brightness, the eye can also be fooled more easily. from a purely subjective view,it is really very, very difficult, to declare a winner,that means, which display offers unambiguously the higher image contrastin tv or movie mode. here in this setting it can be seen very nice, how limited the number of columnsof the panasonic is. i'm going back in the underexposure thatâ you get an impression that here

in the details nothing burns out. our camera sensor is just limited here. when i go back here in overexposure, then you realize that in principleover the entire width of the image of the panasonic a uniform brightness extends. it is really a priority line dimming here, while with sony and samsung indeed sectors around thewoman are recognizable.

here, in the lateral areas of the image, where now just black is displayed, in fact, the brightness is heavily reduced, while it is not possible with panasonic. here can be seen,as with the samsung tv is attempted to increase this peak brightness in the area of these fireworks. but this in principle provokesthat halo effect, while funnily enough the scene is nowmore comfortable with the sony tv,

because the signal processingchooses to prefer the black level, that means, the fireworks arereduced in the brightness compared to the samsung tv, but this halo effect istherefore suppressed. that makes it justso incredibly difficult, to declare always a clear winner, although on paper it should be aclear-cut matter, that means, the samsung suhd with 150 dimming zones should actually be clearly better. but in practice it is not,

because the sony in return provides a much higher peak brightness and the signal drive followsa different logic. we have of course now just aseen a fraction of what we could be testing for hours or even days. but we can draw a for usvery surprising conclusion: normally, it is assumed,that the development in the area of lcd technology will progressthrough this new hdr format the way more and morelocal dimming zones will be installed. we had already in the past

for example, 512 dimming zones with full-hd televisions, sometimes even more atselected special prototypes. but there is no indication that it will actually come to this development. there are two reasons that contradict. if we compare the samsung tv in the middle with the sony tv on the left,then we have to note objectively, that the greater number of local dimmingzones ensures that

details, that is small luminous dots, can be displayed more brilliant and thatunder certain circumstances, the halo effects may be reduced, but the sony tv offersa significantly higher peak brightness and it also offers the much larger picture. to be fair, we should now place the samsung js9590 in 80 inches next to it. we would then find that ithas even more dimming zones, but it has only half theimage brightness of the sony.

the manufacturers are actually switching over to limit the light output. now it is a relatively simple calculation,that the more led zones are controllable, the more leds are actually installed,and the more leds are installed, the higher is the energy consuption, if really all leds have to operate; what is very, very often the case with full-screen display. in the end you have to ask yourself whether to opt for an extremely highbrightness

and then probably automaticallyruns the risk that the number of zones is not that high, or you can choosejust a very, very high number of zones and are a bit patronized by the manufacturer,who then restrains the brightness. the only reason is namely that the energy efficiency or the energy efficiency logodoesn't score too low. that is, if the manufacturer hadn't install this limiter, then such a display wouldeasily consume 600, 700 watts and would be unsallable so to speak. the difficulty for manufacturersnow seems to be really,

to build an hdr display, that on the one hand providesthis enormous peak brightness. here we have to say that the sony display actually complys 100 percent with the hdr specifications, while even the 65-inch samsung not 100 percent manages this,that means, it is very, very close, but also this display falls short of the targetdefault brightness and the 78-inch samsungeven fails to get close.

on the other hand the samsung suhd tvsmanage the display of small luminous dots much more brilliant and also manage to increase the maximum contrast. therefore, we see basically two developments,which will be there even in the future: there will be manufacturers who install less dimming zones and will probably thereby achieve a higher maximum brightness, while other manufacturers aspire to the highest possible number of dimming zones, to reduce any halo effects orjust to display the details brilliant.

even after days of comparisonswe are not able to say what we like better in the end. many, many pictures just live from avery extensively displayed, high brightness control and there even the panasoniccxw804 series partially outclass the suhds, because there the brightness is relativelymarkedly decreased. i hope we didn't make you too much uncertain by this video. in conclusion, we can say: whether large or small number of dimming zones or oled or led lcd,

in future the display qualitywill dramatically improve, because we have content that on the one hand already requires this high peak brightness, on the other hand all displays are, of course, able to convert this content compatibly, so that you have the subjective feeling that you by now can use this contrast plus. i hope you enjoyed this video. i would be delighted if wemeet again next time. take care.

huawei phones


hi, i am nina. today i will be showing you how to make an ipod case with the rainbow loom. this case is suitable for the ipod 5 and the iphone 5. if you have a ipod 4 or the iphone 4 or 3, it doesn't really matter. you have to make instead of 15 rows here you make 13 rows. and here you actually use 11 pegs you will only use 9 pegs. you can also see that i've made a small charger hole and you will need a bigger one. i will show you how to do that later, when i get to that point. and i really like putting a charm on it as well.

you also have a hole for the camera. so let's get started! we first have to make sure our loom is in the right position. to do that we take out our middle row of pegs because we won't be using it. we will also be taking out our big blue piece in the middle but we will first be taking out our right row of pegs, and when that's done then we take out our big blue piece. we will not be using this piece. but we will be using the right row. but we will turn this row around. and then press it down.

now turn your loom upside-down and take out the small blue piece closest to you. and place that all the way to the end. and press it down. so that it looks like this. we begin by placing our loom vertically down. then start by grabbing a single blue rubber band and placing it from the bottom 2nd peg to the top 3rd peg. placing it in a figure eight or in a cross. and press that down. do the same but from the 2nd top peg to the 3rd bottom peg.

do the same with the following pegs. and one more time. do it one more time which is also the last time. so that you have four crosses in total. or four figure eights. then skip one row of pegs. and if you have an ipod 4 you will only do three crosses and skip three rows of pegs. and you will only do nine pegs instead of eleven. so skip on row of pegs and start again with the following pegs.

make four crosses in total again. one more time. like this. now grab a single rubber band and go from the 2nd bottom peg to the 2nd top peg. in a figure eight or a cross. do the same with the 3rd bottom peg to the 3rd top peg. and also with the 4th pegs do this till you reached these pegs. but don't do it with the pegs without rubber bands.

now press everything down. turn your loom the right way again. then grab a singe blue rubber band and place it from the 2nd left peg to the 2nd right peg. without making a figure eight. now go up one in the right row. do this till you reached this point. now go from this peg to that peg. now go al the way down and also do it over the pegs without any rubber bands on it. as you can see i reached the end.

and now i can start hooking. you are going to go in the 2nd peg on the left hand side and grab the bottom two rubber bands. and take these rubber bands over the peg and release. do the same with the next pegs. and this time there are three rubber bands. hook these over as well. grab the next three as well. three again. on this peg there are only two.

on this peg you can't hook the rubber bands over because there aren't any. so do it with the next pegs again. two here and three there. three here. and two here. it is really hard to grab this one because it sticks to the other rubber bands finally, now turn your loom around and start hooking in this row. bottom two and after that there are three rubber bands. and now grab the two again.

and skip this peg and continue. now turn your loom around. and now place white rubber bands. your going to go from the 2nd left peg to the 2nd right peg. and go all the way to the end. first do the right side. and to make this case you will need sixty-five rubber bands office colour if you use three colours. and in total you will need about two hundred rubber bands. and go back again.

like that, now hook up all the blue rubber bands. so grab the bottom two. if you did every thing right you should have two blue rubber bands on every single peg. you will also hook these rubber bands. now turn your loom around and start again. then turn your loom around. then do the same but with red. now we are going to hook all of the white rubber bands over. turn your loom around again.

do this three more times. i will be right back. i have done it three more times and i am going to do it one more time. so i am going to do it one more time. now i am going to hook up the bottom red rubber bands. now press everything down. like that. and go in te 4th peg on the left side. go in the 1st rubber band and then grab the other rubber band.

now hook that rubber band over the peg and on to the peg in front of it. do the same with the next one. one last time. now i have hooked six times. now i am going to go on the 5th peg and take of those rubber bands. do the same with the next rubber bands. also on the 7th peg. on the 8th as well. and on the 9th.

but don't take of the rubber bands on the 10th peg. so you have on five pegs no rubber bands. now grab your blue rubber bands and go from the 4th peg down to the 3rd. then go from the 3rd to the 2nd. now go from the 2nd to the 2nd on the right. and go down twice. now we are going to start hooking. so turn your loom around. and grab these rubber bands from the back and hook them over.

do the same with the next two. and these two to. then hook up these two. now hook up the rest of the row. now hook back again. and then the bottom one. now turn your loom around again. continue this fourteen more times. but if you have an ipod 4 or another smaller device you only do this eleven or twelve more times.

well, i am done. as you can see i have done my fifteen rows in total. and now i am ready to do this part. so i turn my loom around. so that the arrows on the left side are pointing towards me. and the arrows on the right side are pointing away from me. so you are going to count four pegs on the right side. and just start placing rubber bands all the way round. over all of the pegs.

wait, i have to change colours because i have just used red. i have to use blue instead. as you can see i only have one rubber band here but that is normal, so if you thought that's wrong its not. because there only comes one rubberband. so just go all the way round. now you can start hooking. you start hooking on the left side. just hook these to. but don't hook this single red one.

first we are going to grab this first blue one on the 4th peg and hook that up. hook up all of the blue rubber bands on those five pegs. until you reached the peg with the single red rubber band on it. don't hook any further. now go back and hook up that red rubber band. then hook up the rest. you can see on this case that we just made this white row which is this blue row on my loom. and then i have one row left before the camera hole so i am going to make that row now. which is going to be white.

but we have to turn our loom around. and just go over all of the pegs like that, now we can star hooking again. you will hook up all of the blue rubber bands, also the ones that we just hooked. on this peg there are three rubber bands. press everything down again. and now i am going to make the camera hole. to do that you count nine pegs up and go in the 9th peg, grab the bottom rubber band and hook that up. then go in the 10th peg and hook that rubber band up as well.

that's it. now take of the two rubber bands on the 10th peg. also take of the one rubber band on the 9th peg. then press everything down again. now i am going place red rubber bands again. you just do the same thing as we did before. so go from the 2nd left peg to te 2nd right peg. and go all the way up. now go down once.

as you can see these two pegs don't have any rubber bands on it and just keep it that way. so skip those two pegs, we will go over them in the next row. and now just start hooking. and on this peg there are three rubber bands to hook over. and press everything down. turn your loom around and start again. but then with blue rubber bands. now go over the empty pegs as well. as you can see the rubber bands are hooked here so we will hook them now.

so go in the 8th peg and hook the blue rubber band up. do the same with the 9th peg and with the 10th peg. like that, now you know that it's secure and you can start hooking. but there are no rubber bands on these pegs so don't get confused. and on these two pegs there is only one rubber band. do this one more time. turn your loom around and start hooking up all of the blue rubber bands. and do all of them also the ones we have just hooked up. that was this white row we just did so now we have to make the top part.

so just do the same as we did for the beginning. so turn your loom vertically. and just lay the crosses again. but don't skip any rows of pegs, so just do the entire loom. but don't do the entire loom just the pegs we have used. so you make ten crosses in total. so that means we will use twenty rubber bands. make sure the rubber bands aren't twisted and don't overlap each other. now go back to the beginning and start laying rubber bands over the two pegs across from each other.

like that, now turn your loom the right way again and hook up all of the white rubber bands. turn your loom around and continue on the other side. they aren't completely secured jet so to make sure they are we first have ti turn our loom around. and go in this peg and grab the bottom rubber band and hook that forwards. go in these rubber bands and grab the bottom rubber band and hook that over. continue this forward. all the way to the end. but make sure it is the bottom one otherwise your case may fall apart. now i have reached the end and i am going to grab the bottom rubber band and hook that to the peg next to it.

now turn your loom around and just continue. like that and now hook this last rubber band. now stick your hook in this last peg. grab a single rubber and pull that through. and place that rubber band over the other rubber on you hook. and pull on the first rubber band. now you can take your case of your loom. now that your case is of the loom it's not the form that you want it to be so pull on the edges. i have put a heart charm on this case and i would like putting one on this one two.

i have already made one in orange. here it is and if you want to make this heart charm to tie it on to i have a video for it. this is a good idea for the world cup because of the dutch colours. you tie it on like this... you have this loop, pull the loop on the heart through the loop attached to your case. but make sure the heart is still on the other side. pull that loop over the heart. and now pull on the heart. so that the heart is attached to your case.

thanks for watching an i hope you are going to make this beautiful ipod case, bye see you next time.

huawei p7


let's do a review for cubot s208! first of all, it costed 120$ about 90€ from pandawill. let's check how it startups, cubot logo shows up, oh it makes noise too :p. this is the phone, it says that i don't have sim card, indeed i don't have. the phone use 2 sim cards, one micro sim and one normal sim card. 3g works in greece (wcdma 850/2100mhz). oops, the video doesn't show the letters on the phone. it says i don't have a sim card. menu is like that, it has notifications and switches, wifi bluetooth, etc.

it has a greek language so don't worry, the menu is custom from cubot i guess as it's a bit changed from a normal android phone. it's 4.2.2 version jelly bean let's see. greek, here they are. about phone, s208 4.2.2 as i said, custom version: cubot. let's see, jelly bean, let's play with the beans :d. this is it. wireless update, it has a new version, which released 1 august 2014 as you can see! very nice indeed, cubot updates and cares for their phones!

nice built in application for wireless update. it didn't come with the latest version as i bought it before august, it took almost a month to arrive. this is the menu, launcher is a bit different like miui, the applications are on the desktop. (edit: latest firmware update has a menu) here are the contacts, calls, sms. browser here, let's see. it loads fast. weather! internet is fast. it doesn't seem to lag anywhere.

it has capative buttons that lights up only when you press them, i guess for battery saving. it has an option to close the applications you previously opened. let's see how the music is playing. sound is good, it has a bit high volume. take a look at the phone. volume is nothing too much or less. let's see the pictures, the screen is very nice , very good colours, the video i am recording loses some of the colors that i currently see! nice resolution. it doesn't seem to lag anywhere, i have more than 150 hd pictures inside the phone, it has nice resolution and colors.

here is the menu of the pictures, you can change it like this. let's see how videos play, this is the trailer of expandables. it has very nice colors! you can easily watch a movie on it's 5 inches screen. i am very satisfied with it's screen, it's very nice, the colors etc. resolution is 960x540 pixels but it's hard to understand that it's that low. 5 inches ips screen. gpu mali-400 and cpu mtk6582 quad-core clocked on 1.3 ghz. phone memory is 16gb very nice! you can use a 32gb max sd card if you want, it has 1gb of ram.

dual cameras, front 5mp and back 8mp with flash. as i said before it has dual sim dual standby, it isn't active. so if someone calls you on the first one the second one will show as busy. nice videos. here on the menu it shows preview of the movies before you play them. nice feature. here's the camera. wtf this is a video xd. it has a lot of features, 8mp as i said.

flash! it has power but nothing too much. let's see what the phone has on default, caldendar nice and simple. gmail, google, local. it has a radio, cause many phones doesn't have. video playing program, e-mail program. outlook - gmail and manual settings to add your own or a different provider. it had google earth on default!let's check it! is that a video? lol. anyway, i haven't used google earth much, that's it. downloads,it has clock for alarm, timers.

it had chrome too and not the default browser only, nice. calculator, let's see, it has a scientific feature too, nice. backup program, but i don't have an sd card inside. sound recording program, not many phones have this. maps, navigation, news and weather, play books, play games, play magazines, play music, play store, it has play store! scan, let's see.i don't know wtf is that :d. oops i don't have a sim card. it has a shortcut for wifi! youtube application!

google settings! that's the default ones, i downloaded 2 games. let's check them, that's fast and the furius 6, it seems like a nice and heavy game, it takes time to load. recording the video loses quality, it is really better on my eyes.it has colors, but what can we do... :p nice graphics! nice legs! haha :). oh ! it can drift too! nice!:d it wasn't that hard. let's play one more round to check it. it plays fast, a nice phone indeed, i can't say it got hot much.

phone reacted fast quitting from the game. let's close the previous applications. the phone is really fast, it doesn't lag anywhere!! let's play this game, subway surf, oops i meant surfers sorry :p noooo! how could i screw up like this?! it doesn't lag anywhere :d it plays really nice! oops, missed that.it's ok, that was the game. phone is really fast! that's all. for anything else, just ask me.send a message or a comment and i will reply.

here we can delete the notifications. some of the parts here aren't yet translated, they may translate it on a different version update but i am not that sure.it's not much of the deal, you can get used to it, even if you don't know english. here you choose what switches you want, really handy! that's all!goodbye ! :)

so what's up guys? what's it been three or four weeks? >> yeah, it's not been that long, not aslong as it has been since the summer, so. >> that's true, that's true. yeah >> i don't know life is pretty good. i'm happy. so. >> yeah.

>> yeah, you okay? >> doing well right over here with theoverpowered electric long board, so. >> that's right. that's right. we play with that a little bit outside. sorry audience you didn't get to see us. we will post to video later but it's justa remote controlled awesome long board and you can zip around everywhere, right? >> oh, yeah.

yep. >> pretty fast too. i know they don't understandskateboarding but they'll think that you put all this effort forth just to go likea few feet and this thing like solves the problem. >> exactly. >> can i tell push you up though? >> oh yeah. you can go like 20 miles uphill. it's 20 miles per hour.

so it's crazy. >> wait, so how fast does it really go, like? >> it's like 21 miles per hour yeah. on the motor like you can godownhill and everything too. it's ridiculous. >> i have to get one of these in my life. now that i've tried it i need one. when you first got it i was likeoh, that awesome but i don't know. now i know.

so september and early october have been prettyhopping in the tech world so we have more topics than we can possibly handle today. that means this is going to be along episode with lots of goodies. so if you want to hear something specific and youthink we're a little long-winded check our website or posting on soundcloud for time codes andthen you can go exactly where you want to go. we're going to kick things off today by talkingabout the upcoming retirement of onestart and from there we'll hit the big news which isgoogle alphabet and all the recent updates coming out of apple and then we'llround out things with a couple of tech absurdities and interestingrumor on campus.

cool? >> yeah, sounds good. >> we're going to start this segmentoff with a little history lesson. way back in 2001 before ipods and iphonesand my being able to enjoy a cocktail out of a keurig machine iu launched onestart. it was a portal to basically every universityresource the classifieds, the bursar payments, paycheck info, benefits, timesheets, and on and on. it was like that closest door you haveto slam shut before everything falls out but now after 14 years of being a dailypart of our lives iu is putting onestart

out to pasture and replacing it with one.iu. here to talk to us about onestart'sretirement and one.iu is likely "back to the future" fan eric westfall. welcome eric. >> thanks, great to be here. >> before we get started canyou tell us a bit about yourself and your team's role with onestart and one.iu? >> so i've worked at the universityfor i guess almost eleven years now and when i started i was actually on theteam that was working on onestart and it was

of course was already out then andpeople were using it at that point. it's grown a lot over the years. eventually i came to be the manager ofthe team that works on onestart and one.iu and so our team is responsible foronestart, at least in the short amount of time it has left and we built one.iu as well. >> you know, as i said before onestart's beengoing for 14 years and retiring a service that has been around thatlong is a pretty big deal and i think some people are thinkingyou know, if it's not broken why fix it? so can you tell us what brought about this change?

>> yeah, i mean onestart hasbeen around for a long time and it's served its purpose well hereat the university over the years. but you know we're always looking for waysto provide better service to our students, staff and faculty and really there was, there wassome feedback that we really have been getting over the years saying that it's justtoo hard to find stuff in onestart. you know, if you go into onestartthere's, you've got links on the left. you've got tabs across the top and when youclick on one of those there's other links so there's a lot of clickingaround to find things. there is a little search feature in onestartthat probably not very many people know about

and maybe they don't use it and itdoesn't really work all that well. so really it was, you kind of had to, you kindof had to know where you were going when you got into onestart to find what you were lookingfor or you had to go to like the knowledge base to read a knowledge base article aboutwhere do i find this in onestart. so you know, it was really all about the factthat people, particularly students were like this, it's too hard to find what i'm looking for. and you know we get obviously with students comingin each year we get a lot of new people every year and all of those people haveto learn how to find things. so we went with one.iu.

we wanted to create a system that wasreally simple for people to be able to find what they were looking for. and that was really the inspirationand that's how one.iu came about. we read and even hear in uits talk aboutone.iu having an app store experience and this is an app store reallyonly in the visual sense, right? >> that's correct, yes. yeah, you know we incorporated a few thing thatyou kind of see in app store like experience and really in your smartphones and your tabletswhere you have kind of these little links or tiles or apps that you click on that takeyou to what you want to launch,

so if you want to launch facebookor twitter or whatever it is on your phone you'll have alittle app on there for it. so we use kind of a similartile-based experience inside of one.iu. so you know you search forwhat you're looking for. maybe you want to check your grades, checkyour class schedule, pay your bursar bill, whatever and you'll see these tilesthat come up that present tasks to you that you can click on to go do that. so that's kind of part ofthe app store experience. the other part of it is we allow people to writereviews on tasks so if you want to review canvas

or you want to write a review about the classregistration system you can go in there. you can give it one to five stars and youcan write a review and the really nice thing about that is that it helpsthe people who are owners of those services get faster feedbackthan they might get otherwise. you know, i know that uits does annualsurvey where we get feedback from people which is really great but being able to getfeedback a lot quicker is really helpful as well because those of us who run theseservices will know what's working well and what's not working well and we can reallymake improvement based on that feedback we get. so that's kind of the other part of it that wecan give kind of as part of the app store part

of it is that ability to writereviews and provide feedback. >> okay, that's great. so it really is as easy as search, click,done in that if i type in bursar or if i type in maybe campus bus, a taskpops up for campus bus. i click on it and i'm there. i'm exactly where i need to be. yeah, our motto is search, click, done. so we really, we want people to be able tosearch for what they're looking for, click on it and be done rather than having to kind oflike in onestart they had to click around

and find what they were looking for. and that works really well especially for newpeople who like students coming in to be able to find things but also it works wellfor people who have been here for a while because they may know the names of things. they can just search for things and find it. for those that don't like that kindof search-based experience it's easy to create favorites inside of one.iu aswell so you can click the little heart on the tile and add it to your favorites. the next time you log-in it will be right there.

so we kind of tried to blend the best of bothworlds and if you talk to staff that had been at the university for a whilethey will probably like onestart because they know where everything is, right? so they know where it's at so they don't reallyhave to search for it but we're trying to kind of blend the best of both worlds by havingfavorites in one.iu for tasks and services that people use a lot and just add them toyour favorites because they're right there. but also allowing you to search forthings that you may be looking for. >> are there any particular tasks that aremaybe the most popular tasks on one.iu? >> yeah, well e-mail is very popular.

a lot of people use e-mail, canvas as well. you know we have actually on someof the regional and iep line, bloomington campus is doing this event calledgame on where we get to talk to students and staff but mostly students and one of the things we hearabout is a lot of them really they get into canvas and they do a lot of their work in canvas. that's where they spend most of their timeassuming their professors are using canvas for the class so a lot of them, you know maystart at one, get into canvas and then spend a lot of time in there but of course you know there areother things they have to do outside of canvas, like they have to pay their bursar bill.

they may want to look at their grades, their classschedule which they can actually do that in canvas as well i believe, so you know thoseare canvas, e-mail is pretty popular. iu classifieds is very popular as well. it's kind of like an internaliu craig's list almost. >> right. >> and on bloomington the bus routes, the doublemap bus tracking is really popular as well, so those are some of our ones that tendto show up at the top pretty consistently. definitely, right after gradesare posted the grades task shows up right there near the top as well.

everybody wants to know whatgrades they got in their class, so. >> make sure mom and dad, keep mom and dad happy. >> if i try to visit onestarton october 22nd what happens? >> if you try to visit onestart onoctober 22nd you're going to see a message that tells to go to one.iu instead. >> so it is gone. >> it will be gone, yep. onestart will be gone and you will haveto go to one.iu to get to everything which will be a better experience hopefully foryou to find the things that you're looking for.

>> are there any services on onestartthat have yet to make it to one.iu? >> no, we've really been working over the pastwell, really over the past couple of years. that's one thing that people may not know isthat we actually brought one.iu online in october of 2013 and we've been runningit alongside of onestart. that was really a very deliberate decision becauseit would give time for people to get familiar with it and time for us to make surethat we moved things over so you know, we really have done everything we can to makesure that the stuff from onestart is in one.iu and we've worked a lot directly withpublishers and people that own that particular, you know those pages and that content in onestartto make sure that we're doing what we can

to make sure they're represented in there. and there's stuff in one.iu that wasn't inonestart either because it's much easier to put things in one.iu than it was to putthem in onestart so we really have more in one.iu than we ever had in one.iu. >> do you have any examples of what'son one.iu that isn't on onestart? >> well, there's you know a task in one.iuthat can take you to the apple store. >> oh, wow. >> that's one example i knowabout off the top of my head. and that wasn't there wasn'tanything really like that.

i don't think there was in onestart, so youknow one of the things that we've been doing too when we've been talking to groups as we have beenmoving them away from, as we have moved them off of onestart and setting up tasks and servicesfor them in one.iu is we've also said, well what else do you have that would make sense? what else would somebody want to look for? what might somebody else search for? do you have another system that we mightwant to create another task for in one.iu? so we've really been trying tomake it so when somebody's looking for something that they can find it in one.iu.

>> will more tasks be coming toone.iu as other service providers find that they need things for people to access? >> oh, i'm sure that there willbe more that will be coming. you know we get requests all the time forstuff and so you know there may be new services that come online or somebody realizes hey,it would be great if we have this in one.iu. i think that once we see onestart retired too andeverybody is really using one.iu heavily hopefully that will help spark some ideas and peoplewill be like hey, you know it would be great if we had this in one.iu sothat students can find it. so yeah, i'm sure that our work is not done.

>> it never is, it never is. what's the most important thing youwant our audience to know about one.iu? >> the most important thing i want them to knowis that it's meant to be the place where you go to find the services thatyou need at the university. so the important thing about that is if youdo go there and you're looking for something and you can't find it let us know. there's a way inside of one.iu by the sign-inbutton where you log-in to send us feedback and one of the options is that youcan't find what you are looking for. we really want to know about that becauseif you're going there to find something

and i can't find it we wantto find out who owns that and make sure we can get it published in there. and i would add another thing isin between now and october 21rst if you're still using onestart, stop. go ahead and make the switch over to one.iu. you'll be in a better positionthan if you just wait until the 21rst of october to make that switch. >> all right, fantastic. well everyone, one.iu officially replaces onestart

when the service retires onwednesday, october 21rst. any nerd worth their salt knows thatoctober 21, 2015 is back to the future day. the same day that marty mcfly and doc browntravelled to in "back to the future part 2." this means that one.iu is the future. if you haven't gotten into one.iu frame ofmind yet as eric said take care of it now. it's not enough for us to saythat time isn't on your side here. time is up. learn more at restart.iu.edu or simplyget started today at one.iu.edu. thanks eric.

>> thank you. >> either of you still on onestart [inaudible]? >> no, i mean i used to clock-in on onestartbut now i use it on one so i don't know compared to one the onestart looks very outdated but it'sall i knew when i was here as a student, so. >> yeah it's awesome. >> yeah, if you've been here any time in thelast 14 years onestart is all you know so. >> one.iu feels like it's definitelyeasier to find things and like on the start page it shows you things that itthinks that you want to go to like classifieds or the time thing is on there and someother stuff so i think it's very intuitive.

>> also there's a task on one.iu for "talk nerdy"so if you are unable to remember the address which is talknerdy.iu.edujust go through one.iu.edu. >> so what else does one have onit because since i'm not a student. i don't use it very frequently soi mean like you said there's a task for "talk nerdy," what do you mean? >> i mean that if you type in talk nerdy tome or even just talk nerdy it will find it. if you click on a task itwill take you to our website? >> so can it search like otherpages iu has as well? >> i think you need to have atask in one.iu for that to happen.

>> oh, okay. >> so we happen to have one and othersites do as well but not all of them. >> it does a lot of [inaudible] like grades andlike transcripts and stuff like that as well. >> bursar. >> which was super confusingbefore and now a lot easier. >> yeah. yeah. >> and like before if you're on your phone and you're eight links deeptrying to get to something now -- >> you're trying to picture zoom and it's --

>> yeah, now it's much, much easier. so of friday google as we know it is no more. it's been restructured as alphabet which is now aholding company that includes google, the x lab, the sidewalk labs, calico, nest, fiber,and google ventures and google capital. this is a really, really big deal. it seems to separate the moonshots likeself-driving cars and cancer detecting pills from the money-making operations,things like internet. so they can go after really rad things and stillturn a profit and keep their investors happy. what are your initial thoughts?

>> i guess my question for it is allthose companies that were originally under the google umbrella but now it seems likethey're just side by side with google so does that mean that google has likerelinquished control of all of those or does alphabet have it now? >> oh, i see what you're saying. can google still talk to like the, i mean likewhat is it nest and some of the other companies? >> well, before they were likenest was a subsidiary of google and now it's a subsidiaryof alphabet not of google. so does google have any like power overthose companies that were once controlled?

>> i mean i feel like what is larry and[inaudible] are going allow communication between everything and probably keep it the same. i don't know. i feel like it's more for just keepingthose side projects like isolated if they -- >> yeah, i think it opens up transparency and itallows it because you know you lose a lot of money on these investments and so that's not impactingsearch and youtube and all these other -- well i guess youtube is kind of a behemothbut a lot of these things that bring in money that might, those investmentsmight pull down a little bit. >> they kind of just transferred like the restof those to alphabet instead of from google.

>> right, right. >> well, that makes sense then. >> so it could be really cool but i mean it couldalso mean lots and lots of really awesome projects that they couldn't do before theycan do now, they can try now. >> i think the thing that's also nice about it isthat google had their hands into so many different like things but you didn't really know about allof them because there were so many to look at but now that they're all separated ithink that will make it a little bit more as you said transparent and we'll know what'sgoing on up underneath this umbrella now, so. >> uh-huh, well i think the thing that'sinteresting is that the alphabet motto

where google had the motto of "don't be evil"whether they abided by that or not, that's gone and now the alphabet motto is "dothe right thing" which is ambiguous. >> i think it's kind of tough havinglike the motto of "don't be evil" because if you get rid ofthat are you now being evil? >> you know like what's going on? >> yeah, it's like if you're just doing the rightthing now who are you doing the right thing for? >> are you doing the right thing for society or -- >> or yourself. >> -- or yourselves?

>> super vague. >> like doing evil makes money. >> doing the right thing doesn'tnecessarily make money. >> well we'd just like to think that googleis going to keep their integrity intact so. >> well, i'm sure they think they willbut you know power corrupts, right. >> yeah, especially these days. >> it does. does anybody remember that tv show "heroes" whichwas awesome first seen and then absolute worst? and now they have "heroes reborn" and the bigbad company in "heroes reborn" is trying to round

up all the people of power so theycan use their powers for technology? yeah, their motto is "doing good is goodbusiness" which sounds pretty similar to me. >> yeah, yeah. >> i guess time will tell what will happenwith alphabet and the rest of the companies. >> well, i don't know maybe the x labis really what we need to be afraid of. >> yeah, lots of weird stuff going on over there. >> the weird, cool stuff. like i don't think we really need to be afraid of, i don't know google ventures,google capital or search at all.

anyway in other alphabet newsthough google announced that, they announced the upcomingrelease of the nexus 5x smartphone and the 6p phablet along with android marshmallow. >> i saw both of them and theyweren't really what i was expecting. like on the previous nexus the flash was aroundthe camera but now they've kind of moved it off to the side and i thought thatwas one of the beautiful things about the previous one, sothat's one thing i don't like. i felt like it looks like, what's that one companythat used to make phones that look very similar to iphones shuame or something like that?

>> oh, shuame i think. >> shuame. yeah, from china. >> yeah, it looks like one of theirphones that they made previously, so. >> i do like i mean it looks like the[inaudible] quality is incredible on the thing and it's made by huawei i think, right? >> yeah, i think so. either them or lg. >> lg makes the 5x and then huawei makes the sp.

>> okay. >> and i don't know the fingerprint scanneron the back is just i don't know you know, if your phone is on your bedside and then youhave to take it up and then i'm back to -- >> i don't know if that's themost ergonomical thing but. >> is that on the 5x? i was going to say because on the 5x it would makesense for lg to put all that stuff on the back now but since huawei i mean they traditionally havemade very inexpensive like lower budget phones, so there's some things like theway google is trying bring them out to make them more well-known manufacturer.

>> yeah, especially they don't have alot of presence in the united states. >> one thing i wondered like these are, there'snothing really special about these phones. they're priced below the flagship phonesand it seems like for a while google had to make nexus phones to show theworld how good androids should be, like this is how android is supposed to be. this is pure. this is great. this is what you can do with it. do we need that anymore?

>> i think this is more for those hardcore, well not hardcore you know thereal, the people that love android. it's like the platform they want. they like the pure experience. they can't find it anywhere else and i thinkit's honestly just google just saying thank you to them more than anything becausethose people are really outspoken about android too and they tell all their friends. hey, look at this awesome phone and then theygo to verizon and they give them you know, 6 galaxies and stuff, so i don't know, yeah.

>> but i mean previously as you were sayingthat they always had something that was like revolutionary in the software. like i know like with one of the nexusphones you could take that sphere of photo but now there's not been anything that's reallycome out that kind of like changes the game but i think the same thing goes for apple either. i mean they just had their new phones come out and i don't really think there'sanything very special about them, so. >> right, that's right. >> i think we're kind of hitting like anevolutionary kind of point with smartphones

that it just gets like for user interfaceand features it's more incremental. >> right. we're waiting fora massive game changer again. >> yeah. i think everyone is like out of ideas. >> they just keep getting faster and more ram. >> we can craft a nice model around that. get some more passionate commercials. so speaking of kind of maybe we're plateauing abit with smartphones, iphone just released the 6s and the 6s plus, sold 13 million phones on opening weekend breaking their ownrecord but that sale includes china.

you know is this a letdown of sales for them? >> i personally don't think that thephone did as well as you thought it would because like normally the daythat like google or not google, the day that apple releasestheir new phone for preorder it's like back ordered within hours and that's it. but like when i ordered my phone i orderedit like three days after the preorders opened and it was still not back ordered and it's, ithink a lot of them now still aren't back ordered. i think it depends on thecarrier and the size and what not but normally they would be back ordered well intolike november or late october and i don't think

that happened until like a weekor so after the preorder date, so >> yeah, right, right. >> and you guys, do you guys have yours now? >> uh-huh. >> yep, the 6s plus. >> how do you like it? >> i love it. >> i mean, honestly like my iphonebut i personally don't think that i got anything extra out of the phone.

it's a little bit heavier than before and it'sa little bit thicker too just so they could add that like sensor behind the screen to do the 3-dtouch and i like the 3-d touch feature and i think that will be very beneficial when more apps canuse it but right now it's like all the apple apps like the messages and phone calls and e-mail andsafari can do it and maps as well and then -- >> i think instagram. >> yeah, instagram, yeah and that's it. >> can you talk a bit about 3-d touch. i only know what i've read. so i don't have a --

>> so there's like a sensor behind the screenthat measures how far in you push on the glass on the outside so it's like obviously very, verysmall like space wise and so if like you want for instance to hold down on the message iconif you force touch down 3-d touch down on to that it will show you likepeople you recently talked to. you can click the name andgo directly to their message. >> oh that's nice. >> yeah or instagram you can hold downand go directly to like your activity feed or go to like post a new photoor something like that. on the camera if you 3-d touch down like that youcan choose whether or not you want to go straight

to a selfie or to like a live photo orsomething so it's just kind of adding a shortcut with like the press of your finger to the app, so. >> yeah, and they you also have like the peek andpop kind of words that apple made up but that's like in messaging you can kind ofpush down a little bit on a message and then you can kind of get a preview of it. you don't read it to see if you read,receipt and all, you don't read it but and then you push a little harderand then it pops into display. i don't know how to describe it anybetter but you should try it out. >> so, i mean because you're not, you're a littleunderwhelmed, rather but you really like it.

>> well, i think it's a really coolfeature but i always forget to use it because there's not many otherapps that actually can utilize it. so like most of them like i said, there areapple apps and then like instagram and that's it. if there were more apps that could usethat feature then i think it would be -- it would give me, i guess it would give me abetter experience but like what liam was saying when you can peek into a message withoutactually reading it that is good. so like if i'm busy at work or whatever and i haveall these messages i can quickly glance at one of them without marking it read so i canremember later to go back and read it or like if someone sends you like a link to alike website or sends like an address or whatever

that you could also 3-d touch down on to thatlink as well and you can preview that website or preview that address withoutactually going into another app so i think those are prettycool the features about it >> yeah, and then i mean the 3-d touch is awesomebut also like they doubled the ram too which a lot of people don't know about so that appscan stay open longer in the background. like you have more tabs and safari can stay openso there's a lot better processing in the graphics and the cpu too which theydon't really advertise too much but it's a lot faster thanthe 6 which is really cool. >> and finally a higher megapixel camera.

>> yeah, really. >> finally like three years, four years later. >> but it doesn't really match up. it is at best comparable to the otherbig phones with great cameras, right? it hasn't bested them anyway. >> i don't think it's betterthan samsung's camera. like i was at the zoo the other weekend with mynephews and we were watching the dolphin show and a lady in front of me had like this biglike galaxy note or like galaxy s6 or something but her camera was just likeit pulled in so much light.

the pixels i guess were much larger so likeher pictures looked way better than mine did and i'm sitting right behind her taking thesame exact picture and i'm just like whoa, i have this new camera but idon't really see the difference because hers is still like besting me with it, so. >> well that surprises me because that used tobe where apple won hands down was the camera. they had a fantastic camera phone. >> so i don't know. like with my s6 i take fantastic photos. it's incredible.

i can't take photos. they look amazing. it looks like i have all this processing,that i have some kind of clue, not a bit. >> yeah, i think they need a bigger sensorand like bigger pixels that way it can allow in more light and you can take better qualityphotos especially low light photos well, so. >> okay. so a lot of other things have beenannounced from apple in the last few weeks. probably i think the biggest maybe the ipad pro which is kind of basically a microsoft surfacethree years later. >> has it really been threeyears since the surface came out?

>> we're on the surface 4 coming out soon, right? >> yeah, four is coming out next month. >> wow. >> so, i mean it looks like a bigipad but like the keyboard looks just like the surface's keyboard and then theyhave that pen that you have to buy separately. >> the pencil? >> yeah. the pencil for $100. >> it is outrageous that that comes separately. >> yeah, i know.

>> and the keyboard is it's all separateand then it comes out to like over $1,000 which then you could goodbuy a mac book, you know. >> yeah i know. and the surface you can get for what, $700 andstill get the pencil with it and everything. so i know, when i first heard the price ofit oh yeah, it's going to be like comparable to like the surface's price and then i realizedthat those other accessories come separately so. >> that is absolutely outrageous. i understand the pencil also as an accessory orselling the keyboard as an accessory but they need to come packaged together for one price.

>> right, yeah. >> i think the pencil surprises me because as weall know steve jobs famously bashed on styluses or styli i'm not quite sure what the plural ofthat is but he also told tim cook to do it right and not waste time wondering what he would do so. >> i think like kind of the argument one couldmake in defense of like steve you could say that use the pencil for only drawing andwriting which isn't, i think like steve's like argument was you don't want to do a stylusfor like touching, you know like opening apps and stuff like that but then idon't know what his opinion would be on like drawing and like trying to like --

>> well it seems that there's a really greatopportunity to maybe with the design community that i think who uses wacom tablets you know ithink you know we're largely a design office, the it communications office and we're mac heavy. i think there are maybe two pcs in our office sothat might be a market they're trying to tap into. it would be reasonable. >> in effect, i think that's only onereason to create this surface pro. like what are the other reasons? i feel like they just made itbecause they feel like they had to. >> well i'm talking more about the pencil.

>> oh, the pencil, yeah. >> the pencil capability that maybe you cancapture those people who use macs for desktop or at-home use and then they're out sketchingor drawing and they need a tablet with them. >> uh-huh, i think it's cool that it has onethat's battery powered and it has those features like you tell it to do shadingand all that other stuff. if you want like a thicker lineyou just push harder on the screen. so i think that stuff is cool but i still thinkit should have just came with the [inaudible] pen. >> the way you charge it too it's a little -- i know we were talking about this beforethat you kind of just stick it in the side

and the pencil just sticks out like verticallyfrom the ipad and it looks like a tail. >> that's just asking for -- >> it's kind of weird. >> the nice thing about thatthough is you don't have to worry about a separate charger for the pencil. >> that's true. >> so. you just pull off the little capstick on the ipad for 15 minutes or actually like 15 seconds gives youlike 30 minutes of use so. >> is it that fast?

>> yeah. so i think that's pretty good. >> the only thing is the, what is it, the otherthing that will announce is the pixel c. it has like the inductive charging keyboard. i think apple could have donesomething like that with a pencil in it. like it almost charges it wirelessly. >> they'll do it in a couple ofyears and we'll all be wowed by it. >> yeah. when are we going to getwireless charging on the iphone? like that should have been out years ago. >> it should have been out.

>> like years ago. >> well, they'll wait for everyone else toperfect it and then they will do it and -- >> but it's already perfectedwith the true charger like. >> just like put that sensor inthe phone like everyone else did. >> put those in the cars too. >> well what there will be anotherevent like may or something maybe that's when we'll get the wireless charger. >> the f 1-7. >> in a case.

not even a phone. >> so a couple of other things. we've got ios 9 which is out and hear causingsome problems for people as well as watch os2. >> yeah, i mean it's not verydifferent than ios 8. i mean there's a little bitof cosmetic difference. so like the keyboard is a little bit different. the font of the phone is differentin which you'll notice if you really paid attention to stuff like that. but my biggest issue with it is that mycalendar doesn't sync and like i have meetings

and everything that need to be in my calendarand like i got an e-mail from work actually. it goes if you upgraded, if youhaven't upgraded to ios 9 don't do it because they haven't fixed the calendar issueso like i'll add something to my google calendar at work and it won't show up on my phone. it will put like something on mycalendar there saying that i'm busy but it won't actually put the eventthat i had just typed in there and then now my watch doesn'tsync the calendar either, so. >> that's a big problem. >> it's a problem for me because i was soexcited for ios or watch os2 so i could use

like the multicolor like modular displaybecause that's like the coolest one on there and then the calendar is sitting right inthe middle and it says no events today. and i click on it and there's absolutely nothingin my calendar and i'm just scrolling through and there's nothing in my calendarbut my phone has all this stuff. so i don't know what the issue is betweenthat but i've tried looking at every remedy that there is online to fixit and it hasn't happened so. >> what about you? are you having any issues? >> no, no real problems.

i mean my watch's battery is like horriblebut i think do any unpairing kind of trick to fix it is the way to go butyeah, no real, no complaints really. i mean the one thing thatthey kind of left out on it that i was looking forward the mostis called i think like something where your apps only download the necessarycomponents for your phone particularly so it doesn't take up as much storagebut that wasn't included in there, so they pulled it at the last minute. it's like a little developer thing but, yeah. >> one thing that they did add to ios 9 thatonly works on the iphone 6s and 6s plus is

that the hey siri feature and my phone had that. like it has it on the iphone 6 andlike the 5s i think but it only works when your phone is plugged up to power. so if your phone is like charging you can say likehey siri will do this for me and it will do it but only when it's plugged up but now that workseven without being plugged up so it's a lot more for me it's a lot more efficient because i'mconstantly needing reminders to be made and alarms to be set and like calendar things to be createdfor me so now that i can do that without having to have the phone in my handi think that's pretty cool. >> that's nice.

>> is that only a 6s feature? >> the 6s okay. >> i tried it today on mybrother's phone and it doesn't work on his phone but it works on mine, so. yeah. but it also has like siri, you haveto like say hey siri like five times, in different ways so that it canrecognize your voice from different like ways that you speak and what not. >> so last episode we talked a bit about thekeurigs for cocktails that are coming out and now it seems that keurig has createdthe keurig kold with a k for sodas

and hot beverages, teas, juices,anything you want. >> i think it's a pretty cool idea. like i'm excited about it if it wasn't$370 i would have had it by now but -- >> that's a bit much. that's kind of steep. >> it's stupid. >> i don't know about that. >> it's pretty cool though. i mean you put it like normal temperaturewater in there and you put these little k caps

like they have the syrup and everythinglike you need to make the soda and within like 40 seconds it like will chill your waterand then carbonate it and mix it with the syrup and out pops like a normal cokethat you would get from the can. >> you have a classic coke at home. yeah. >> or you could pay a dollar or less. >> yeah, but then you've got to drive. anything that you can drive that you can do inyour home and i don't personally buy soda at home. i would just drink juice or water and sometimesi want like a pop or sprite or something

and if i could make it onmy keurig then there it is. >> it is very rare that i want a soda athome very, very, rare and if i do instead of mixing something with theaforementioned keurig for cocktails. i cannot imagine that thereis an actual market for this. >> well you know how the soda streamcame and everyone was hyped about that? >> i think this just does it better. >> but it wasn't like $370. >> also you can buy the sodastream at bed, bath and beyond. >> those are like knock-offs too.

>> you can probably find the keurig there too so. >> you probably will but it seems that ifyou're a person, i think the big reason to use a soda stream is that oh, i'm gettingaway from all these excess chemicals that you see in coke or shove it down my throat andnow, you know coke is back for your home. >> yeah, because they partnered with coke so. >> oh well. >> i don't know, i mean the market of like peoplethat pay like for a $400 soda machine i think goes against the kind of people whowould pay that much money -- >> i absolutely agree.

>> i think the price is definitelymore than it should be. because i mean the cocktail one is around thatsame price but that's like, that's cocktails. that's like a legit thing. >> that's a whole other level. >> but for soda though, $400? >> this seems more like a desperate move to mefrom the soda industry to get into your home. people are drinking less soda and drinking water. bottled water at best if they'rebeing from a soda company. >> this is i think this islike a last gasp effort.

>> well apparently keurig has been working onit for a while they just haven't released it. so this is just kind of like oh, here's a projectwe've been working on for a couple of years. i don't know if the timing's rightbut we've perfected it so here it is but i think the price should be a lot lowerand but keurig hasn't really done anything new. i mean they have their machines but theyjust keep updating like the displays on them and the appearance of them but there'snot been anything like revolutionary come out since they released the keurig so. >> well, i think you can say that aboutcoffee machines in general, right? >> yeah. because keurig wasit and now like what else?

so maybe this was just tokind of like i don't know, we don't know what else to do so here's soda. >> i feel that if you needsoda in your home that badly -- >> -- get a 12 pack. >> yeah. and i think there was like a report acouple of days ago in the wall street journal of like soda year to year sales arejust, soda in general like coke, pepsi, all of them they're just decliningso fast, i don't know. >> so maybe it's just a partnership we're seeinglike keurig here's our new thing and then coke like we need to sell more coke so.

>> one thing that does get around as cities passmore ordinances with soda taxes and that kind of thing you could get around it that way by -- >> but those k cups are stillgoing to be expensive. i mean now the k cups are expensiveyou can make your own for much cheaper but you can't with a soda so i don't know. i'm curious to see how well it's going to do. we'll be able to see in due time. >> yeah, we'll find out. count me amongst the skeptical.

>> i think i'm probably not going get one. >> so i think maybe that should havebeen the sad trombone in tech but alas. >> we haven't found out yet so -- >> that's true although -- >> maybe it will be soon. >> also sprint has had anothercolossal run of budget cuts. do you want to about that? >> yeah. so obviously sprint hasn'tbeen doing that well recently. i mean they tried to acquire who was itlike metro pcs or something like that?

>> i think so. they tried, i think they triedto align with t-mobile. they've struck out all over the place. >> yeah and now they have like thebig push like "try our new network. it's so much better." and like honestly i'm kind oflike hmm, it's still sprint. like i don't know how much better it could be buti think they bought like some spectrum recently but so they actually have budget cuts now for like2.5 billion dollars that they're trying to cut from all their expenses and obviously a tonof jobs are going to go with that as well

so hopefully that doesn't meanthat the unemployment rate is going to go back up but we'll see what happens. >> it shouldn't be impacted thatseverely just because of sprint. >> i mean i don't know how many people theyhave that work for them but i don't know. that's a huge budget cut though, 2.5billion dollars so and i don't know. it seems like they can't i guess get ahead. >> i don't think they're ever going to get ahead. >> yeah. i think there's reallyonly room for three. you know t-mobile and then the other two.

>> yeah. and they could have been a big player ifthey just made good decisions like back in the day when they tried to be the first company with4g and then they bought all the wimax spectrum like no one got that except for sprint andso and it obviously tanked really quickly. so then they had to spend all this moneyto catch up with everyone who now had lte and they still had wimax and they'relte is like as fast as at&t's 3g and so they just can't seem to get ahead. >> no, they can't and they won't and things likewe'll buy up your iphone contract or whatever that kind of stuff was, it's not going to work. >> they're probably going to have to get rid ofthat now because they're cutting all this money

but that's like their only wayof getting new customers is by offering like these new incentives. like we'll pay you for your old contract. we'll buy your phone and you'll get a newiphone every year like something like that. that's not a cheap venture for the company. like that's going to cost them a lot of moneyso i don't know what they're going to do. >> well good look to you sprint. i'm not a believer in that either. that's two runs that i'm totally skeptical.

>> not a good run there. >> one great thing that we've heardabout happening and this is just a rumor but there have been a lotof iphone thefts on campus. apparently students are ordering iphones. they're get sent to the residencehalls but being stolen in route and iu pd has supposedly gotten involved. i heard that they have a list of all the iui-numbers that have been stolen or siri numbers or whatever you want to call it and they'relooking at all the classified ads whether it's on craig's list or iu classifieds and forany new iphones have shown up on there

and they're basically going under cover andtrying to figure out whether this is one of the stolen iphones and if it is obviouslyi'm sure they're going to take action but if it isn't they just kind oflet you go about your merry way and you may have wasted time meeting them thinkingyou're about to make the sale and it turns out they're under cover andthey wanted to just make sure that you weren't selling a stolen product and ithink it's kind of cool because when i was here as a student i really didn't know whatiu pd was doing for us as students. i knew that they were aroundticketing us and everything but i didn't know they wereactually being proactive on campus

and looking out for our best interest. in a way, i think that more studentswill acknowledge and appreciate so. >> in a more visible way. >> yeah, i really wonder likewhere they're being stolen. i mean like in kind of liketransportation you know. is it like fedex or ups? is it in the residence halls or? >> i don't know because -- >> are they getting to campusand then disappearing?

>> yeah, i don't know but apparently the boxesare, they're sealed back up so like you get to this box thinking there'sgoing to be a new phone in here but there's nothing in there but the receipt. >> i just can't imagine howdevastating that would be. >> i know after you've spent all thatmoney on a phone and then i'm sure like the cellphone company is going togo like look you're going to have to go through police department to get it back. >> we've mailed it. we've done our due diligence.

>> yeah, i mean. fob shipping points. >> i mean technically it's not ourfault or verizon's fault but it sucks. yeah, you know, you've got the mail[inaudible] you go to open it up and then -- >> they know you have to wait for weeksmore just to get another one, too. >> it's probably going to be a longtime before they get them back. >> yeah. you don't get a refund on that. >> no. >> you know.

oh. >> i wonder what are the studentsdoing that had this happened to them. >> i hope not buying another one. >> off contract like 600, 700 bucks. i would be so pissed. >> they may need to just go directly to the at&tstore or wherever and buy the phone out of store. >> that would be like good pr on their partfor like at&t or verizon they would be t like, hey we'll give you a phonewhile yours is being found. >> yeah, especially here i mean like a lot

of the students here all useat&t so it's close to the mall. it's easily accessible and i think that i thinkif that would be something to kind of help them out i think that maybe it would be good prbut it would also be great customer service because the students really appreciate it and thentell more of their friends who don't have at&t about it or verizon or whatever and theywould be like this is what they did for me when my phone disappeared and this iswhy i stay with them and whatever, so. >> yeah. i mean that is cool actually. good idea. >> at&t do it.

they're listening. >> so i think that's all we've got today. do you guys have anything tothrow in before we wrap this up. >> no. that was a lot. >> we may have taxed our listenerswith too many topics so. as a final reminder to everyone out there thestate wide it conference takes place october 19th to the 21rst here in bloomington. that is the largest technologyconference in the state. you are invited to attend the opening keynotetalks on october 19th at the iu auditorium.
