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)
Hey guys, it is John C. Morley here, a serial Entrepreneur. Welcome to the JMOR Tech Talk show. I can't believe, ladies and gentlemen, that we are already in the third week of February. Where did January go? Where did 2022 go? Oh, we have another great show for you guys tonight, as I'm sure you're aware. So let's get right into it, shall we? And in case you're new, there's a QR code you can use on your phone. Just open up the camera app, point to that QR code and touch the ellipse, and you'll be greeted with my links. You will get lots of great information to improve your life and many of the JMOR Tech Talk shows. So let's go ahead and share our first topic. Let's get started.
Electronic bag tags are ready for takeoff. So what is this all about? Well, basically, Alaska Airlines has made electronic bag tags available to elite mileage plan members with a broader rollout plan in the first half of the year. And walking into Sea-Tac Airport for an afternoon flight could be a lot easier with Alaska Airlines now serving kiosks to print bag tags, and you wouldn't be wasting time in the crowd anymore. So that's pretty much what's happening. So you might still have to wait in line to drop off your bag, but by the bag tag with it being attached, it'll be ready before you arrive at the airport. And in fact, it's probably been on your bag for several weeks for multiple flights at different destinations, making it even easier. And this is because an electronic bag tag about three by five roughly has a little device made by a Dutch company called Bag Tag, and it's powered by Nearfield Communications from a smartphone just long enough for a Bluetooth low energy connection to update the eLink display, the saying technology used in Kindles and other e-readers when checking in for a flight on the airline apps.
John C. Morley: (03:06)
After that, the electronic tag stays on the screen until it's updated for your flight. Pretty cool. And so, the question you might be asking is, when is my airline gonna have a bag tag? Well, so the bag tag gets you ahead of the check-in line a lot easier. And so when we think about, you know, what happens with the fact that you know, you're standing in line for such a long time, you use your phone to control your baggage journey, you check in and label your bag with just a few clicks, arrive at the airport ready to fly and avoid those wonderfully boring and unnecessary cues. So the nice thing about it is you don't have to worry about recharging because it is a battery list. So that's pretty cool. It withstands all airport conditions, and you can take control with the all-in-one solution.
John C. Morley: (04:06)
So the question is, is this something people will embrace, or is it something that people will be on the fence about? And I think when I say on the fence about, you know, it is a technology and it is something that seems pretty cool, it's a convenience, and the technology is pretty neat, but is it gonna work? Meaning, what happens when it goes wrong? So there have been some minor glitches around the globe, unfortunately, and in the short run, a lack of availability among different airlines means it's not a great solution for people who regularly fly on multiple carriers. So infrequent travellers probably won't see enough value in it. However, the electronic backpack will be worth the investment for many frequent Alaska Airlines passengers and for regular customers of other airlines as the technology becomes readily available.
John C. Morley: (05:04)
So your luggage arrives consistently on time at your destination. For now, this is primarily a system and test in the fact that the e-tags work reliably and not because of big technological leaps in bag tracking. It's a simple technology that has just been used in a new way. The electronic bag tags do not contain an RFID transmitter. And again, it's easier for the airlines to track and route bags, but it will require infrastructure upgrades at many US airports. So the nice thing about this is that they'll be able to control and make sure that your luggage gets to the right place automatically without you having to worry about it. So the question is, how much are bag tags? And I think that's an interesting question because the electronic tags are gonna vary, but it's about a $70 figure per device, so, you know, just under a hundred bucks per device.
John C. Morley: (06:17)
But again, you can use it on multiple flights, and supposedly it will help you do many great things. So I'm interested to see what's gonna happen with bag tags. I'm not a hundred per cent sold on it, but it's very similar to what they did in the US and the FedEx market, how, you know, they route packages using, you know, scanners and smart technology. So that's kind of, you know, what's been happening there. So we'll keep an eye on that, ladies and gentlemen, and we'll definitely keep you abreast of that technology and what's happening. So something new I wanted to share with you guys, and some other cool news that's coming up is the update to the Apple iOS 16.3.1. So this is another update by Apple. It's available for the iPhone eight and later, iPad Pro, all models iPad Air three third generation and later, and the iPad fifth generation and later, and the iPad mini fifth generation later. The impact is that an app may execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. And our use after the free issue was addressed with improved memory management, also the Xin root chi of Pangu Labs per the Google project. So there have been some fixes, the CVE chief threat, the vulnerability impacted web kit, the engine behind all iOS web browsers, including Safari, potentially allowing hackers to execute code on iPhones or iPads. Now, you might be saying to me, John, what is a CVE? Alright, common vulnerabilities and exposure. So definitely something we've gotta stay, I'm gonna say on the mark for, but I gotta tell you that updating your iOS phone is not a hard process. You can expect the first beta of the Iowa 16.4 to be released probably around this week or a little bit later.
John C. Morley: (08:25)
And rumours are the update will include the revamped home kit architecture initially released in Iowa 16.2. So right now, if I was to go to my phone, which is pretty easy to do, and I was just to go up there, and I was just to type in the word update, which I can do very easily from the setting screen, I'll see it says software update. Mine says automatic updates on it take a second just to pull up, which, once it does, it says iOS 16.3. Now right now, I have not updated to 16.4 the 16.32. they had a minor bug fix to arrive before 16.4. But the question is, you know, should I be updating? And I think the short answer is yes because anything you can do to make your phone more reliable and safe is definitely important.
John C. Morley: (09:23)
So the update to the 16.31 is 269.9 megabytes. Just go ahead here. You can see ladies and gentlemen and click on the download and install button. It'll ask you for your pin. And then what you're gonna see on your phone is it will actually say do you want to use the update? If you wanna allow it, you can continue with the update, and once you continue on with the update, it could take a couple of minutes. Once that happens, it's relatively easy. You know, you just kind of wait for that process to finish. And once that process finishes, it's gonna go through some things automatically. And once that happens, you're actually gonna get a little message. But it usually takes somewhere around a minute to maybe five or six minutes, depending on how fast of an internet connection you have.
John C. Morley: (10:19)
And it says once it's downloaded, it says the update provides important bug fixes and security updates for your iPhone. Once it's done downloading, which we'll return to in a second, we will install it. Now the important thing is that when you install this update or any update from Apple, it will basically take your phone out of service for a few minutes while it reboots. So the iPad, iOS 16.31, and the phone, iOS 16.31. There are ISO reports of bugs in the release and notably single-strength complaints, but the security of your device obviously comes first. And I gotta tell you that when it comes to security, I think that should be your first concern. So again, expect the 16.4 to be released either like toward the end of this week or probably next week. And rumours are the update will include the home kit architecture released in iOS 16.2.
John C. Morley: (11:17)
So pretty cool. The thing about iOS 16.31, you know, a lot of those say, Hey John, I don't wanna put up with this. Even though your phone is set to auto-update, I've noticed that it doesn't install automatically. Even though it says it installs automatically, it doesn't. So again, just to review, what are the updates in 16.31? Cuz I know some of your probably say, Hey John, I don't quite get what all the updates are, so let me try to go through them, you know, quickly, so you understand. So, first of all, the update provides important bug fixes and security updates for your iPhone. That's number one. As we said, CVEs are the common vulnerabilities and exposures, so iCloud settings may be unresponsive or incorrectly displayed if apps are using iCloud. Okay, supposedly, it fixes that, sir. Request for find my may not work crash detection optimizations on the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro.
John C. Morley: (12:15)
The release notes for the iPad are the same, excluding the crash detection update for the iPhone 14 models. And This update addresses what would trigger when people were not actually involved in a crash. Hopefully, this will fix that issue as well. So Apple released the 16.4 betas yesterday, but we're probably gonna see the 16.32 very soon, as I mentioned to you. So again, you can get to this by going to settings, general software update, download, install, or you can just go to settings and type update, choose software updates, and away you go. Now, since we started this, ladies and gentlemen, I am literally sitting at, if you guys can see, I'm not sure if you guys can see this on the screen; it might be a little hard. It actually says 16.31, but I know it's a little hard to see the phone.
John C. Morley: (13:03)
So right now, it's about one minute remaining. I know a lot of you're saying, Hey, John, I can't download the update because it says I'm on cellular. Now, you can still use cellular, but keep in mind that if you're not paying an unlimited fee, it will charge you a chunk of change. So do make sure that you're connected to a reliable wifi network and one that is secure. Once you do that, go ahead and go back to that option and download it. Now, right now, it says about 16 seconds remaining. Now on some phones, what will happen is, depending on the state, if you request the update, they'll say that it was requested, but then you have to wait a minute or two till it's actually there. Now, it says about eight seconds remaining on my iPhone here for iOS 16.31.
John C. Morley: (13:49)
And it's gonna take just a second, four seconds, well, it's gonna go to three seconds here in a second, and then it goes two seconds. Again, I know you guys can't see that. And then it's gonna go over to one second, and then it's gonna say the word preparing update. So it's downloaded, and preparing is when it's getting ready for installation. That'll include such as extracting and getting it ready. And then what it'll do is it'll actually commence with the installation. It will then reboot your phone and start finishing the process to initiate the installation process itself. So again, it's a fairly easy thing. Just remember that your phone will be out of commission. We'll come back to the iPhone update as soon as that finishes. So I'll let you know what's happening there in just a little bit.
John C. Morley: (14:39)
But it is very easy to do, and I definitely would encourage all of you to do it. All right, so smartphone warning, you wanna change these settings, ladies and gentlemen. So I know, know, mine is, is still updating, but if you were to go to your iPhone right now and you were to go to settings, and then you were gonna go down to where it says mail, okay, pretty easy to go to, you're gonna see something that says privacy protection. So settings, you'll scroll down to mail, and then once you get to mail, you will see privacy protection. Now, the question you might ask yourself is, how does all this work? Well, it's really pretty simple. Again, you're gonna go to settings, okay? And then you're gonna scroll down, and you're gonna select where it says mail. Once you select mail, you're gonna go ahead down to where it says privacy protection, okay?
John C. Morley: (15:35)
And then, on privacy protection, you're gonna slide the toggle next to protect mail activity to the right to enable the particular setting. So again, it is a pretty easy process, and I think a lot of you will be saying to me, Hey John, why didn't I do that? And it's not because you didn't want to. A lot of times, it's because you didn't know. And I think, ladies and gentlemen, that could be a huge issue for a lot of people. So you know, thinking about this option right now where I talk to you about privacy protection, and you can go right to the go-to privacy and security, and there's something called location services. There are tracking services, and you can literally ask apps not to track you. And there are other settings there as well. So again, there is something called a safety check, and go to safety check.
John C. Morley: (16:31)
You have an emergency reset, which immediately resets access for all your people and apps and reviews your account security. And you can also customize which people and apps can access your information and review your account security. I think that is pretty cool. But I think the most important thing is that Apple has always been focused on security. We know that. I mean, that's not really a surprise to, I believe, any of us. And so, my update is still on preparing update 16.31. So again, I think people get taken aback because they don't realize that security is a problem. And if you understand that security is something you have to stay on top of, well, you won't have an issue with it.
All right, let's talk about Microsoft Bing's chat. All right? This has been an absolute, how can I say, disaster because, you know, a lot of people don't get what's happening here.
John C. Morley: (17:36)
They don't understand this hype because, you know, Microsoft made this hype that the chatbot thing was gonna be. Because we're gonna be great. And I must tell you, ladies and gentlemen, that this chatbot thing, although interesting, is a problem. And this is a quote right from the Verge. Microsoft's Bing, and I quote, is an emotionally manipulative liar. And people love it. So users have been reporting all sorts of, let's say, very bad behaviour from Microsoft's AI chatbot in one conversation with the Verge. Bing even claimed it's sped on Microsoft's employees through webcams on their laptops and manipulated them. Microsoft Danes chatbot has been unleashed on the world, and people are discovering what it means to be in a beta test environment, or shall we say an unpredictable AI environment. I definitely think that this product needs a little more. How can we say a little more research or r and d?
John C. Morley: (18:47)
So my feeling is that this really should not have been released to the public. It should have been, I think, brought to a more controlled community. And I think that would've made things better for everyone. But hey, this is what's been happening. This is what's been going on. Everybody thinks that this thing is the greatest thing since sliced bread. But you know what, ladies, gentlemen, it really isn't, you know, anytime technology comes out, you don't have a chance to actually review it or, you know, go back and say, Hey, is this the right thing? Is this not the right thing? I think it's a problem, and we all know that Microsoft wants to make money, and that's no surprise. So we'll keep an eye on what's going on with the Microsoft Bing chatbot, but I recommend not using it.
John C. Morley: (19:31)
It's not ready for users or anyone in the world yet. It's still being tested. And the fact that it grabs data and reports things in a way that would not be so conducive to a lot of people, especially those that may not like technology or be afraid of technology, I think it probably should have been, let's say parking lotted and kept for just a small beta group and not released the whole world. But, you know, Microsoft decided to release it. So, you know, you get what you get. Here's something really interesting, ladies and gentlemen. A hyperrealistic robot of a famed artist. And I'll spell this name for you cause I don't want to mess up the name. The name is Yoyoikusama which makes people stop and stare.
John C. Morley: (20:24)
So what the heck is this thing? It's this new robot that was actually launched. But the thing about this robot is that it actually has a step right now where it says verifying the update. And then after it says, verifying the update, it's going to now reboot my phone. So that's almost, let's say, more than 60% of the update being done. So you don't wanna do anything about that. And literally, it's rebooting my phone. It's probably about two or 3% per cents of the apple logo that has come up on the black screen.
And so this hyper-realistic robot of the famed artist I just mentioned makes people stop. And the thing that's very interesting about this is that it's catching so many people's attention. I mean, so many people are stopping to say, Hey, what the heck is going on with this?
John C. Morley: (21:30)
And I think it's because it's so lifelike, and you know this tiny home robot will keep you company while you self-isolate the hyper-realistic robot of the famed artist that I was just mentioning. And I have to thank ladies and gentlemen that it's kind of the future of what they say, Blink. If any of you have read the book, I think a lot of people, you know, when they see something that's close to being lifelike, they're ready to jump on it. They're ready to say, Hey, you know, let's check this out. Let's try this because, let's face it, many robots out there are mimicking what humans are doing, but they're not quite exactly in alignment, okay? And this robot really caused a big stir in New York. So if you like robots and realistic ones, you'll definitely have to go to New York to observe this artist painting her famous polka dots in the window of the Louis Vuitton store on Fifth Avenue. You'll see there is a surprisingly realistic robot of the Kasama that makes movements and grimaces in a very interesting way.
John C. Morley: (22:59)
It turns out this is gonna be something that I think is going to captivate people because now it's showing art in a big way, as only Louis Vuitton knows how to do. This is an icon or iconic. I should say, a collaboration that's celebrating the blending or the melding of art, audacity, craftmanship and psychedelic proposal of Kasama. So this is pretty cool. Are we gonna see more of this? Well, a Bhutan pop-up space located in the meat packing district was covered in floor-to-floor infinity dots to echo the artist's celebrated Infinity Room and was also dedicated to the new Yayiokasama collection. And this is just interesting. I love when we're able to take technology and get people to appreciate where things are coming from. By the way, my iPhone is probably about; I'm assuming, maybe 10%. This Buddha process is not just a Buddha process; it's actually installing the 16.31 iOS update.
John C. Morley: (24:11)
But again, when there is an update, and it's about security, I would tell you you've gotta do it all right? I know there could be the potential of things not working right, but hey, your phone's security is the name of the game or any mobile device you have, laptop, et cetera. So security has to win over everything. And if it doesn't, you must readjust your priorities. That's my opinion, but I think you should follow something. And you know, more and more stuff is starting to evolve as we're in 2023. I think people are starting to wonder, you know, what's going on with technology. And before I take a quick leap, I want to ask you guys a question. You guys may or may not know the answers. What new technology okay was in the latest Super Bowl?
John C. Morley: (25:04)
Does anybody know the latest technology in the Super Bowl? So Fox Sports elevated its camera technology for Sunday's broadcast to the Super Bowl with more slow motion cameras than ever, an unprecedented two sky cams and a new artificial intelligence service that makes the most out of all the equipment. So they can really give an amazing production. So technology wins, and the football teams are being able to benefit from it. And the new AI technology could change game prep for Superbowl teams and engineers trained in algorithms to annotate football game film. I mean, this is something that is really, really cool. So the tech behind the game, the Super Bowl, is utilizing the most advanced technologies, including cutting-edge communication systems and high-tech video streaming. Now we've known about streaming before that, that's nothing big, but the face of the Super Bowl is changing.
John C. Morley: (26:06)
And by the way, ladies and gentlemen, my phone just came back online that took, you know, probably 5 to 10 minutes, and if I go to my update screen just to see that my phone has updated, I could see that my phone is indeed at iOS 16.31. So Camera Tech has come a long way. The Super Bowl halftime Show has come a long way. I mean, I think they got really crazy with the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl IT and event security benefited from the most advanced IT event security solutions around, with millions of people attending the Super Bowl. They had to really step up their game advances in facial recognition technology have enabled Super Bowl organizers to develop comprehensive security protocols involving physical and digital security measures. So really amazing how they have evolved and Super Bowl stats in real-time. Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event of the year.
John C. Morley: (27:02)
And knowing who the favourites are can help you make better predictions when betting on futures. The conclusion, of course, with all the exciting additions to the innovations of the Super Bowl, especially in 2023, we are definitely sure that it's probably the most talked about event in sports history ever with the new technologies; as we said, like facial recognition, security solutions, real-time stats and betting odds. There are so many ways to stay up to date on the latest news and trends of the Super Bowl. As I said, the halftime show supposedly had some interesting things. I watched it. You know, the first thing I thought about when I thought about the Super Bowl's Half show, as I said, gee, it's pretty dangerous. You might say, gee, why? They said it was one of the most-watched shows in recent history.
John C. Morley: (28:09)
I think the reason I consider it dangerous is the way they had all of these cables, you know, lifting things up and down. On top of all that, you know, the fact that Rihanna almost fell from one of the hanging platforms was a slight issue. And there was no harm to anyone before, during or after the presentation. But again, she almost fell. And all I kept saying to myself is, I think they might have gone a little too far with this Super Bowl game because I get that they won't impress people. Believe me; I get it. I get it. I get it. It's nothing new. But I think they went a little too far, and somebody could have really gotten hurt. That was my biggest concern, ladies and gentlemen, that somebody was gonna get hurt, possibly Rihanna, because I saw the way, you know, things were going up and down, and you might ask yourselves, you know, how did the tech work on the Super Bowl halftime show?
John C. Morley: (29:26)
And the Super Bowl halftime show got set up in just six minutes, okay? And you're probably saying to me, John, you know, this sounds amazing, but again you know, they designed the audio and had this whole choreographed event with the songs and lyrics. And my biggest concern is that this halftime show had people more interested in what was going on and less in the actual song. Yeah, I think that's a problem. It might have come as a surprise to you. The truth is that the Super Bowl halftime show performers didn't get paid for their concerts. Instead, the N F L pays for all expenses associated with putting on the half-down show, including travel costs. Why would they even wanna come out, so they didn't get paid? I mean, that kind of blows my mind. They didn't get paid. And the other thing that has me really bewildered is the fact that not only did they not get paid, but they've risked their lives on those platforms.
John C. Morley: (30:55)
They've risked their lives. I mean moving stages at halftime, that was something I think we were more concerned about what was gonna happen in the Super Bowl then, you know, the song, and I feel that when you take away from the song from the actor, okay, I think you've gone overboard. Now you know Disney, right? You know, MGM, you know Fox, and you don't know other companies that actually produce theatrical-type events. And I have to say that every one of these that I've been to they have wow factors, but they never go so far as to cause danger or to be so out there that you pay more attention to what's going on than the song or the actor. Now, if they did have something like that, then they have a special slot of time when that firework, when that event or attraction took place, but the singer wasn't singing them.
John C. Morley: (32:09)
My biggest problem was I thought we were too distracted by how things were moving around during that super halftime. And I just kept thinking that somebody's gonna get hurt, somebody's gonna get hurt. And there is a new rule. There are definitely new rules coming. Ladies and gentlemen. Yes, there are new rules. Facebook, Google, Twitter, and TikTok will face stricter EU rules. What, what the heck is this about? The new rules require large tech platforms to manage risk and external and independent auditing. Wow. Brussels and I quote the tech giants, including Facebook, Google, Twitter, and TikTok, face stricter online content rules in the European Union due to their huge number of users. Close quote. So I think the European Union is getting concerned at how fast these platforms are growing. And because of that, they're now imposing more, let's say, stricter regulations.
John C. Morley: (33:20)
The new rules, known as the DSA or the Digital Services Act, classify companies with more than 45 million users as very large online platforms or VLOPS and require them to do risk management and external and independent auditing. And you know, they will also have to share data with authorities and researchers and adopt a code of conduct. I don't think these people are gonna like this. Now, the European Commission has given online platforms and search engines until February 17th to publish their monthly active users. Those labelled as the BLOPS have four months to comply with the rules or risk fines. Ouch. We know that's gonna be expensive. Just this past week, on Thursday, Twitter said it had a hundred 0.9 million average monthly users in the European Union based on an estimation of the last 45 days. Google's provided one set of numbers based on user accounts and another set based on signed-out recipients saying users can access its services whether they sign into an account or are signed out. I see some people getting hefty fines.
John C. Morley: (34:35)
It's also said that the average monthly number of signed-in users totals 278.6 million at Google Maps and 274.6 million at Google Play. Three hundred thirty-two million at Google search and 74.9 million at shopping, and 401.7 million on YouTube. We know they gotta comply. Apple said only its app store was built for its iPhones, with over 45 million monthly users qualified as a large online platform. But it'll also apply the same rules to App Store for iPads, MAC computers, apple Watches and TVs, and to its Apple Books, eBooks and podcasts paid subscriptions. So again, the question is, you know, what's gonna happen? And so if you're still wondering what the heck is A V L O P. AVLOP are people that have a large number of users, a very large amount of users, and those are people that have more than 45 million users as they're referred to as VLOPs very large online platforms.
John C. Morley: (35:53)
And this is in regard to the d DSA Digital Services Act. Why are they doing this? Because the European Union fears that people are starting to get exploited by what's going on. That's why they're doing it. And they also, you know, they wanna make sure that their users are staying safe. They wanna make sure their users are staying safe. So if their users are staying safe, then I feel that you know, it's gonna be easier. But I don't think this is just gonna last, ladies and gentlemen, with the European Union. I think we're gonna see this all over the world, okay? I don't mean just one place. I mean all over the world and by all over the world, we're talking a lot, you know, and I have to say to you, big fines, big fines for, we've been talking to companies like possibly TikTok, right?
John C. Morley: (36:56)
We know TikTok got slapped a big fine by the French, right? Not too long ago. That was in January of this year. Now, somebody asked me a question, can you get fined on TikTok? So pop your short form hosting service TikTok has been fined close to 5 million pounds, which is about 5.4 million, by the French data protection watchdog for breaking cookie consent rules and making it the latest platform to face similar penalties after Amazon, Google and Meta and Microsoft since 2020. So I think many of these companies will be raising their fees because they'll have to recap them, right? They're gonna have to recap what is going on in life. And so if they get away with something today, does that mean that they're gonna get away with that tomorrow? I think we're gonna find out that the answer will be no.
John C. Morley: (37:57)
And the more that we look into technology, the more that we look into, you know, providers and, you know, just trends starting to emerge across the entire digital market as well as the non-digital market. A lot of companies are trying to sneak out, they're trying to get into doing things that are under their radar, and they're trying to say that they have a lower count like we just heard from before, but really they don't have a lower count. They probably have double or even more than that. So the question is, is this gonna become a lot of court cases back and forth, or are these companies gonna fess up and say, look, this is where we're at? We know we gotta own up, we gotta take our responsibility, we gotta do what's right for not only the European Union but for the American people because right now they're only doing this because they're on threat of getting charged millions of billions of dollars in the European Union.
John C. Morley: (38:58)
The question is, will the US do something like this? I don't know. I do think it's gonna take time, but I know that if they get burnt by the European Union, they are probably not gonna be able to do this in the US either because, again, if something they do affects somebody and let's say that European Union that citizen may visit the US, they technically could bring up complaints with the European Union cuz they were travelling. I mean, I don't know. There's a lot of speculation here, and I feel that where technology's going with Facebook and the fact that Facebook changed their name to meta, which we all know they're still Facebook, but they say they're Facebook meta, it just causes us to ask more questions to get some answers. But those answers cause us to keep asking more questions that we can't get answers to.
John C. Morley: (39:52)
And it's not because the companies don't have the answers; it's because they don't want to count out and give us the honest truth. Why don't they want to do that? Because they'd rather exploit us. They would rather manipulate us, grab our data and share it with people that are gonna pay them billions of dollars. See, that's the problem. And we know companies that did this in the past, and they'll say, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to do that. You know, doing it once might be, and I'm sorry, doing it two or three times with millions of people's data. Well, that's a pretty big fine. So before we wrap up tonight's episode of JMOR Tech Talk, I think what we have to be looking out for in 2023 is where artificial intelligence is going and where people are using technology to reference information. We saw what happened with Microsoft's AI engine and how it shouldn't even be on the street right now, but we know that they're desperate to get that in front of people to make more money.
John C. Morley: (41:01)
I mean, that's the name of the game. It's all about money. It's not about doing the right thing. And unfortunately, I have to be the bearer of bad news to tell you that there are gonna be more companies out there. They're gonna attempt to rip you off, that is gonna attempt to exploit you. Why? Because they feel they can. So it's up to you to discern what's out there and make a choice. Ladies and gentlemen, should I do this? Should I not do this? And remember, just because you're one person doesn't mean you don't have a voice. Everyone's voice matters. And if we all speak up and we all let manufacturers, and we all let Congress and different organizations know what we feel rules are gonna change, the European Union did this, not because they're so smart, they did it because of the people that are on the board, because of the community, because of the citizens complaining about what's going on, because of potential lawsuit cases.
John C. Morley: (42:04)
That's why they're doing this. They're trying to protect their behind. They wanna make sure that they don't get sued. That's the name of the game, ladies and gentlemen.
