 Hi everyone. I'm John C. Morley, the host of the JMOR Tech Talk show and inspirations for your life.


 John C. Morley: (01:02)

 Well, hi, everyone. It is John C. Morley, serial entrepreneur here, and welcomes to another fabulous episode of the JMOR Tech Talk show. It is great to have you here, and we have an amazing show for you this evening. So thank you so much for tuning in. You know, a lot's been going on in the news. I'm sure you've been following things with Ukraine and all kinds of stuff. Still, something interesting that popped up in the news is that NVidia is unveiling new technology. This particular technology that they have is supposed to speed up artificial intelligence. So that's pretty cool. And NVidia is announcing these new chips. This new technology they're claiming will boost the computing speed of increasingly complicated artificial intelligence algorithms to knock the competition pretty much out of the water. The company has a new graphic chip known as a GPU, a graphical processing unit.


 John C. Morley: (02:15)

 They'll be at the core of the AI infrastructure, and this new H 100 chip and the new pro chip called the grace CPU super chip are based on the British chip from basically the arm LTD technology if you're familiar with that. And it's the first RM-based chip from NVidia to be unveiled since the deal to buy ARM fell apart not too long ago, as you remember. So NVidia announced its news, supercomputer EOS, which is said to be the world's fastest AI system when it begins operation, which will happen soon enough. And so, with information in the world, using AI and doing it quickly is something that is going to be very interesting to a lot of folks out there. I mean, a lot of folks, well, you know, apple and lots of other companies, well, there's always something going on, especially when one company has an idea and, you know, you have your sandbox and they have theirs and you want to play in their sandbox.


 John C. Morley: (03:26)

 Well, you can't play for free. You, unfortunately, have to pay. And this case came to court and I'm going to say made Apple some money because, you know, Apple was claiming you know, a while back many different things, but what had happened, this is interesting about this whole, I'm going to say the whole phenomenon is that this other company when we talked about the W land the Wildland they settled the patent dispute with the license agreement that they put in place. And so Wildland's parent company Quarter Hill said the agreement settles all court cases between Wildland and its subsidiary Polaris and the Apple United States, Canada, and Germany. So the thing about it is that Apple sued Wildland in 2014, in case you didn't know.


 John C. Morley: (04:36)

 And they sought a ruling that did not infringe patents related to allocating bandwidth in a wireless network. Well, the wireless land claimed that the iPhone five and six models infringed by using the LTE wireless standard. Apple, sure enough, went back and said that there was a problem and they were sure that they had a case and they did. They convinced us appeals court in Washington DC in February, not too long ago to reject the 85 million jury verdict against the iPhone maker because of problems with Wildland's expert testimony. That's pretty amazing. The decision was the second time the court had overturned a multimillion-dollar verdict for Wildland in the dispute after rejecting a 145 million jury in 2018. Wildland's primary business is buying patents in the fields, including wireless communications, computer chips, and the automotive industry, and licensing the technology to companies.


 John C. Morley: (05:45)

 That's pretty interesting. And for Apple to get involved with that, it just really kind of amazes me you know, to what happened and knowing what's going on and, you know, and what they're doing, I feel that you know, where they're going with these things is really to figure out the people that are going to use the technology and possibly exploit it and then go after them. So they're no dummies, they're buying things so that when you get close to their sandbox, they can Sue you and make a lot of money. So that is what happened, with Wildland and what they're doing, but, you know, ladies and gentlemen, what's Japan up to now. I mean, that's what I want to ask you. What are they up to? Well, Japan, Suzuki’s SkyDrive sign deal is to now develop, get this ladies and gentlemen, they want to not only develop and market flying cars.


 John C. Morley: (06:59)

 This is wild. So it almost looks something like a helicopter, but it's not a helicopter. It looks like something you've seen in the movies where, you know, you have your place where you sit, and then on both sides, there are two sets of propellers; One is at the top, One is at the bottom and you have that on both sides of this. I don't, I want to call it an aircraft or I want to call it, they call it a flying car, but I don't know if I call it a flying car, but that's what they're calling it. And so this is going to open up some eyes and I know definitely on the world for traffic, it's going to alleviate traffic. definitely on the roadways and maybe put them into the sky. So we'll see what's going to happen with that endeavor, but they're investing a lot of money.


 John C. Morley: (08:01)

 And the companies, unfortunately, did not disclose the details of the investments in their partnership with what's going on, but you can be assured that Suzuki has roughly half a share of the auto market right now. And Suzuki has announced that it plans to invest 104.4 billion. Okay. Rupees and that's 1.37 billion in its India factory to produce electric vehicles and batteries. So this is very, very interesting with the SkyDrive technology, the partnership, and where it's going. And I think the world is going toward electric battery vehicles mean hands down. I mean, that is just, a no-brainer. And a lot of this AI technology is going to hopefully make operating these vehicles a lot safer and be able to cut down on expenses because if we're using AI, the car can actually, or the vehicle can use less of its resources to be an ability to get to a destination and manage the different let's say, systems onboard that is currently used.


 John C. Morley: (09:22)

 Cause that's a big problem with a lot of electric cars is as soon as you turn on one of the gadgets on your car, it just sucks the life right out of your battery. So we're going to keep an eye on what's going there. And I know a lot of you probably by now are sick and tired of the gas prices. I know. Well, unfortunately, Lyft and Uber are now imposing surcharges for the gas increases? Seriously? what you knew this had to happen. I mean, even companies like, like us were imposing small gas fees and, you know, for many gig workers, their vehicles are how they make a living. And as independent contractors, their sole responsibility is to keep them clean, running, and full of gas. And in the weeks we've been seeing the latter part has gotten much more burdensome for these people. So now, you know, when you think about your car and having to put gas in it it's one thing that you run outta gas, but now every time you go to the pump, the prices are rising, you know, estimating fuel usage shouldn't be too challenging, but it is getting challenging. So if you had to ask me right now, what are the average gas prices in let's just say the United States let's take a look at that. All right. The average gas prices in the United States. Okay.


 John C. Morley: (10:55)

 And this is thanks to AAA they have a great site for this. So the current average national gas price on regular is $4 and 24 cents. The mid-grade is 4.63. The premium is 4.91, and the diesel is 5.04. And the E85 is 3.71. But that doesn’t mean you are going to pay that you could pay a lot more money than that. Yeah. You could pay a lot more money than that. And so how do you, how do you figure this out? I mean this gets crazy because gas prices are just, I mean, they're absolute, when I tell you and staying saying they're insane. Everything that's going on is affecting gas prices. And there are sites out there that tell you the top trends. there is gas, and cost calculators out there. But I think the real problem comes in is that when we have to show this money out of our pocket, we have to somehow add that onto another bill. Because if we don't, we're be losing money for traveling. The average cost per mile is increasing as your gas region's price increases. So a lot is happening. And I still don't think we're out of it yet.


 John C. Morley: (12:35)

 I think we're probably going to see gas prices raised probably through the end of the summer. I hope that's it, but I think we're still going to see them raise. And as we know gas prices, right? Gas is more expensive. Okay. You know, when gas is more expensive in the wintertime, that's correct. Because retailers, they switch to selling this winter blend fuel nonsense around September 15th. And while these blend fuels appear to be cheaper to produce, the complications of the switchover can result in temporary bumps in prices. And so is it cheaper to get gas when it's cold? Well, according to many experts out there, gasoline will be denser in the cool of the early mornings, meaning that you're going to get more energy per gallon than later in the day. And the basic facts are correct, but the advice may not be so gasoline does expand and contract a little, depending on its temperature.


 John C. Morley: (13:38)

 So we talked about how you can save money on gas. I told you how you can try to mix and experiment with your car. I know I started doing that for the first time, several weeks ago, where I actually put the middle grade in, and then I put the high in, and then I started putting the low in and I gotta tell you, my car still runs fine. I don't recommend doing that on a long-term basis, but for a few months, I think it'll be, you know, just fine. Uber and Lyft are offering fuel surcharges, and they're also offering cashback offers for workers. But is that enough?


 John C. Morley: (14:15)

 I don't know. I think we're going to have to see it was not too long go. Uber started rolling out a feature that allows drivers to pause incoming trips, to find a nearby gas station through integration with getting upside. And by getting few with those stations, drivers can receive up to 25 cents per gallon, depending on the location. The company said that you know, Lyft had announced a similar partnership with the company, but when we asked them about efforts in what was taking to address rising fuel prices, Instacart also tied a partnership now with getup side. So I think a lot is going on and I think gas prices are going to change, but you know what state has the most expensive gas do you think? Everyone? I know we got people been asking me this question the state that has the most expensive car Gas ladies and gentlemen, do you know what that is? The most expensive states for gas right now are currently, are you ready, California! At $5 and 74 cents, then we tie coming into Nevada 4.96.


 John C. Morley: (15:36)

 Winter gas prices are going to go down. I think that's the billion-dollar question. And the thing about it is, ladies and gentlemen, gas prices are up, but there's no reason for them to be up because we have plenty of supply. it's just of everything that's going on. And now we just got out of this other debacle. they're using this as an excuse because I was talking to some gas station owners and they told me quite frankly, they don't make more money when the gas goes up. And I thought that was kind of strange. They don't. The only people making money are the gas suppliers, not the gas stations. They don't like it when the prices go up because they don't make money when that happens. So that's a pretty bad thing, you know, but we're going to keep on track and see what's happening there because I think it’s important.


 John C. Morley: (16:38)

 But in addition to what you're doing, add a small gas surcharge, but don't put the fee in with your regular price of service, call it a surcharge. I think that's, really, really important. And so what I want to tell you is that when you think about gas and you think about the resource, knowing that electricity is on the way, I think this is another reason why gas prices are going up. But if we had to ask experts, you know, why are gas prices so high right now? Anything people would say. Well. Are Americans using more gas? Are they?


 John C. Morley: (17:37)

 I think what we're finding out is that they can't stay like this in some states they're over 6 dollars and 27 cents. That's absurd. The economy cannot withstand gas prices like this. This is putting an impact on lots of people's businesses and profits. So if you have a business, you need to charge a gas surcharge, right? Right now, there are a lot of theories as to why gas is high. People are saying gas prices are high because of this and that. they're high because of that but really why are gas prices so high right now? They were going up before the Russian invasion. That's number one of Ukraine, but the geopolitical let's say tensions and inflation and COVID 19 and the pandemic are still going on in some areas. So these are also factors that are pushing up gas prices, right?


 John C. Morley: (18:44)

 Gas prices are so volatile. So it becomes challenging, right? And it's almost like any kind of supply chain right now. We're waiting months to get things like printers and other products that normally we could just go to the store and get, and we can't get that. So we are at a disadvantage right now because we're used to getting a product, going to the store, and ordering it. You can go on some sites and they'll rip you. for three and four times the cost of what it normally would be. And if you want it bad enough, they believe you will pay for it. So we'll keep an eye on Lyft and Uber. And again, I understand why people are charging more money for gas. I think that's fine. I just don't think we want to get excessive. So let's say we charge 10 or $15. That's fine. Let's not go charging somebody a hundred dollars on a small service call. If you're going a long distance, I get it. But let's make the fee proportionate to the travel you're using. And then I think people will be very understanding. And then when this situation goes away, the surcharge goes away for your bill, but it's is not a price that you throw on your bill. That is so very violating you. And I have to explain it to you so very vital

John C. Morley: (20:02)

 All right, ladies and gentlemen, if you haven't known we have something called Wi-Fi 6, right. Wi-Fi six has been out for quite a while. Okay. And Wi-Fi 6, just to let you guys know there was some other Wi-Fi before. right. So Wi-Fi four was an 80211 N we all remember that it was a 2.4 and a five gigahertz network in 2009. Wi-Fi five was 80211 ACR. It’s like, oh wow. 80211 ACR. But it was so like gung-ho because of the expanded five GigaHertz networks. Then we got Wi-Fi 6, 80211 AX, which is the 2.4, and the five gigahertz in 2019. So now Wi-Fi six E is out. And so what's the big hype about Wi-Fi six E? Well, there are some differences. Okay. but what are they? Wi-Fi Six E is pretty much the same as Wi-Fi six with one little caveat. It has an E at the end. So that E stands for extended such as an extended number of usable wireless bands the six gigahertz band. So again, extended, it's an extended number of the usable wireless bands. So, the six gigahertz band is a means that Wi-Fi six uses extend the six gigahertz band. So that's pretty cool. Six gigahertz is the new frequency band ran the range from 5.925 to 7.125 and allows up to 1200 megahertz of additional spectrum communication. But why does six even matter so much? So unlike 2.4 and five and other wide-open networks, the six gigahertz spectrum is occupied only by efficient Wi-Fi 6 connections. Thus, you don't have to deal with those annoying troublesome traffic connections that just kind of weigh the network down with extra overcrowding and channels on the new open six gig band.


 John C. Morley: (22:21)

 Also won't overlap with each other. So that's another great reason to have it, it reduces the network congestion. So six E allows for seven additional, 160 megahertz channels that will double the bandwidth and the throughput enabling many more. Yes. Simultaneous transmissions at high efficient possible speeds. So that means that if you're watching an 8K movie or doing augmented reality or virtual reality, large file downloads are going to do all of this without any buffering. That means without any lag, without any little seeing that little circle goes around, oh, when they going to finish, I was watching a movie. So nobody likes that. Right. So Wi-Fi 6E is pretty amazing. And the thing about Wi-Fi six E is that you know, we're expanding just like we're going to see a six network, you know, where things are going to be changing. Devices are going to be more intelligent. Right. And so people said to me, John is Wi-Fi seven's coming? And, and why do you care about Wi-Fi seven? I, I know everybody wants to know this. So Wi-Fi seven will mean a lot more reliability it'll operate on 2.4, five gigahertzes, and six gigahertzes, frequency bands supporting transmission rates. Get this ladies gentlemen of 30 gigabytes per second. Oh my gosh. 30 gigabytes per second.


 John C. Morley: (24:02)

 Wow. That's what I remember, I didn't say it. It's not a thousand megabits a second. it's 30. So we have one. We're doing one right now, 1,001 gigabits per sec. So now we're going to be able to do 30 of that 29 to 30 times faster. That's pretty good. So that’s a big jump from a 9.6 gigabit per second on a Wi-Fi six E that's currently out now if you have awesome environments, but is it worth it? I think the question comes down to what are you going to be using your network for if you're going to be using it for just checking email? Well, the, and it's probably not going to be, you know, the ticket for you, but Wi-Fi six E is still very, very popular. And so the Wi-Fi seven, by the way, has the new nomenclature at the end, the eight.


 John C. Morley: (24:59)

 Oh, the new standard of Wi-Fi. And so the 802 it's the 80211 BE. Opted that on the screen there for you and 80211 BE is going to be the new standard. So 80211, in case you're wondering that's the Wi-Fi model for the OSI. And so the 80211 BE is an extremely high throughput EHT. So it has the potential to transfer a lot more traffic and is a lot more reliable. So if six is going to be more intelligent with devices, seven's going to probably have that seven might even have some additional security features if they decide to do that. But the question is what's coming after 5g. What comes after 5g in cellular? Cause that's been a big buzz, right? So after 5g comes six G and six G is going to be amazing.


 John C. Morley: (26:13)

 So again, it's following the same standards that we have in our homes, but the reason and I like Wi-Fi six and I do everything with Mac encryption and things like that. But you know, when you use devices that are managed properly and that can efficiently transmit traffic, you don't drop, I'll give an example. Some of the old Cisco devices and phones, were only operating at the 2.4 level, right? And at the 2.4 megahertz van, there was lots of interference in there. And that, and that was a big problem. 2.4 gigahertz was a lot cheaper. And so what this is going to mean is the network's going to use more power and it could mean more interference. But the question you're probably asking me, John is how much is a 7G router, right? I think that's probably the biggest question. Is there even a 7G router out yet? Okay. So 7G is coming. Okay. we are not here yet. It's coming. The latest routers we have is going to be Wi-Fi six E.


 John C. Morley: (27:41)

 And so getting the latest Wi-Fi six E you're going to spend a few bucks. You're going to probably spend somewhere around 6 to $800. So remember ladies and gentlemen, when you buy a product and it is now like it's something that's cutting edge. You're always going to pay more money. If you wait six months, that product could drop down 50% because when it's new, they haven't mastered the production and they haven't sold a lot of it. So that's why the price is high. Because again it's kind of trying to become a marketing trend, but it's not. Now I have a question for you. And that is when you think about technology, right? And you think about artificial intelligence and think about all this stuff. The biggest thing I want to know is where is the standard going to be to make sure that people's security is on board.


 John C. Morley: (28:43)

 Now I want to share one more important thing. And it's really important. We all know what's going on with Russia and Ukraine, but do you know that Russia, because of all these sanctions that are be putting, being put on them by other countries, by the U.S, by other international groups, it's getting them very angry. And so what they're doing now, and this is why I want to caution you. They are getting very specific with ransomware tax and are going after places like people in America, and people in certain countries where they're posing these sanctions because these sanctions are right now costing Russia to lose a lot of money. So I urge you right now that if you don't have ransomware protection, think again, it's not a question, of if ransomware rule attack you, but when, if you're not properly protected, a lot of people download free games online. And I think that's fine, but you gotta know what you're downloading. You gotta trust the site because people are downloading things. People are downloading other programs. Do you know what it's doing? It's stealing the windows license code by putting in another code and stealing your code. And now your windows suddenly don't function, right? Because the Microsoft servers see that it's a bootleg copy, but it wasn't in the beginning. It's like they stole it. And then what they do with that code is they sell that code.


 John C. Morley: (30:16)

 Interesting. Right?


 John C. Morley: (30:20)

 What do you need to do to stay abreast of technology, especially with ransomware and things like that? The biggest thing is having an awareness of what's going on in the world because everything is changing, ladies and gentlemen, every single day of our life. But people ask me every day, what is the most important area of technology? And I think a lot of people are going to say security and I would agree our trends are AI online streaming, virtual reality, augmented reality, which we talked about on-demand apps, and custom software development. Okay. So when we think of technology and we talk about specific areas, we're thinking about safety, right? Medical technologies. Because when we talk about technologies that are going to save people's lives, we have to make sure it's not going to harm them, or possibly expose them to a data breach, which could steal their identity. agriculture and biotechnology, energy and power technologies, communication technologies, transportation technology, construction technology, inventions, and other innovations, right?


 John C. Morley: (31:39)

 When we get access to more AI, we already have AI now, but think of AI as a lot of brains thinking together. And so if you can model the human brain, which is what AI is, and it can learn like the human brain does, but it could do it faster. That's who we get. We can get supercomputer power. Now a supercomputer doesn't have to be AI, but that's really where things are going. And it is amazing what is going on with artificial intelligence. I mean, whether we're talking about cameras or we're talking about security. artificial intelligence uses a database, okay. To have its benchmark. If it doesn't have a benchmark, then it has to build it right. But storing this data, ladies and gentlemen, is, let's say, not cheap because it takes a lot of data to be able to make calculations, analyze things and make decisions that an AI model would use. Okay. When we think about things like robotics, right?


 John C. Morley: (32:56)

 And the way a robot walks are using artificial intelligence, they're learning how to operate and not operate. We all remember the movie War games, right? And there was this whole thing where they were playing this game, Thermonuclear war, but it was a simulation. It was a game. It was not a real game. You'd think of it. It was a game that was designed to teach the computer how to learn. And it was also originally taught by its creator, a game called Tic-Tac-Toe. And it learned a very valuable lesson. And that was sometimes the best way to win a game is not to play.


 John C. Morley: (33:52)

 If you have a choice, ladies, and gentlemen, to pick a piece of technology to have in your life, you want the technology to be safe. You want it to be reliable. You want it to not have any data breaches, right? And you want to make sure that that product is going to be compatible while still being secure with your network and other networks. You want to make sure it's easily upgradeable. You may want to make sure it's affordable depending, but if you just buy something because you see it on a fund site or something like that, that's not the best use of your resources and your money. So we, as a population needs to make choices in what technology we want because that's going to propel us forward. What is developed later on in the world, technology can go many different ways? However, there still needs to be a governing body to make sure that technology does not get into places it shouldn't be. I said this once before. Technology can either be used for good, or it can be used for bad. Technology itself is not bad. That's important to know. You know, ladies and gentlemen, it is always a joy to be with you. And I love sharing information about technology and just helping you guys understand that we have choices in our life and when we make these choices we're able to empower or depower our life. So right now, take a moment and make decisions that are going to power your life and everyone else in it. As I told you, the main reason I'm here is to become a better version of myself and help everyone else become better versions of themselves. It has been a joy to be with you tonight. And I have had so much fun, engaging with you and sharing some wonderful information that I know unpack the quality of your life and those you care about. If you let it.
