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 everyone, it is John C. Morley here, a serial Entrepreneur. Welcome to the JMOR Tech Talk show. With today being Friday, yes, September 23rd. I can't believe we only have one more week. I know several of you have been asking, where is Marcus? He's around. He's been busy with some other projects that he's working on. Hopefully, we'll see him in a few weeks to a month. I'm not really sure when, but the show is continuing to go on, and we have some great guests coming up, and we have some live shows, which are gonna be really, really amazing. I also have a golf professional coming up in a few months that's actually gonna talk about how to keep your golf course and club out of the red, keep it profitable in the black, and use technology to provide those services that members want so much and able to actually cut your cost down for the club, which is usually a problem for a lot of clubs.


John C. Morley: (02:02)

So we'll talk about that with the professionals coming on in a few months. His name is Jason Miller. Like I said, he'll be coming on in a few months. So we're really excited to have him come on. So let's talk about today, shall we? So we've got a great show for you. The first thing I wanna talk about is some of the new features on the iPhone. I'm not sure if you guys know about the new iPhone, but there are many new features. Yes. Alright, so the first one I want to talk about is something kind of cool but a little creepy. It's called the auto hangup feature, right? So if you were to go into your iPhone and you're on version 16 point x or higher, what you basically have to do if you go to your setting screen, all right?


John C. Morley: (02:56)

And when you go to your setting screen, you can basically just go right in there, and then there is gonna be an option there under your phone that you can actually control the hangup. So what is this gonna do? It's actually really, really, really cool. So when you're on the phone, you actually can tell Siri to hang up the phone. Tell me that that is not cool or what. I think that is absolutely amazing. So, to have Siri hang up the phone for you, just go to your settings, just type in Siri. You can basically just go ahead and then touch Siri. You'll see a lot of options there, such as type to Siri here, will listen for voice input when you press and hold the side button, I left that off, Siri pause, Thomas default, you can make a longer or longest spoken responses automatic or prefer spoken responses. So that's pretty cool. Always listen for, Hey, Siri shows apps behind Siri. Announce notifications on the speaker. So Siri can announce your notifications to you over your device's speaker, which is pretty cool. The call hangup feature if you enable the call hangup feature, it will have Siri listening. Whether you're on a phone call or a FaceTime call and you have an iPhone 11 or a newer device, it will be able to hang up the call. So you just say, Siri, hang up. And so I was talking to a friend of mine the other night, and he's like, that's kind of weird. He's like, do that. And then as, as I was about to say, you know, it's pretty cool, I was just saying him like Siri. Because he is like, we could end the call, Siri hangs up. He's like, well, don't do it. And second later, the call got hung up, and I think that's pretty cool, but again, you enable that in your Siri setting. So it's really easy to manage. Pretty cool. I like that they added that extra option now for the regular long and longest. So that's pretty cool. So another new feature, ladies, and gentlemen, that they have rolled on are actually called the customized lock screen. All right, this is really cool. So if your phone is locked, you can basically touch your lock screen, and on the lock screen, you just touch it, and then you'll see customized. And then it says here, adds a new wallpaper to make edits. Or what I can do is I literally can swipe over, and I can pick what I want to be in there.


John C. Morley: (05:42)

So, for example, I can pick one of my photos. So a photo shuffle which I think is pretty cool. You can pick what you want very easily. You can pick different photos. Really, really cool what you can do. You can add new wall wallpaper. You can take photos. You can do people. You can do a photo shuffle. And then, by having a photo shuffle, you can choose which ones you want, which I think is really, really cool. So a dynamic set of photos that shuffle as you use your iPhone throughout the day. So you can select photos manually, or you can use your featured photos. So by selecting photos manually, you basically pick which photos you want.


John C. Morley: (06:30)

And it basically knows the photos by your face, which I think is really, really cool. So a great way to have the phone actually have your face on there with different positions. So that's really cool. Of course, you have things like astronomy; there's the weather, there's emojis, there's color, there's pride, there are collections. You have suggested photos, and you have the photo shuffle. You had the weather astronomy. You can do different emojis and different colors. Really cool. You can even set up if you want to have weather. And you can choose to have a weather widget on your phone, which I think is really cool. So I could choose, for example, what I want at a certain time or location, and it will be right on my lock screen. I think that is really cool because a lot of times, people want information, but they don't necessarily wanna unlock their phones.

And if you were an astronomy buff, well, guess what? You could then add a particular area and get the astronomy information about that, which I think is really, really, really cool. So the new lock customized screen feature is definitely cool. You'll want to play around with it. Some people have said they don't like it because you can't just add pictures easily. I found it easy, but it doesn't change your background. It changes the lock screen. And before, it was a little easier. Now you have to do a little more work. Not much, but a little more work. So check it out. Gimme your thoughts. Let me know what you think about that in the comments at the bottom of this show. All right. 

So there is something else there. And it's called the New Improved Texas Speech feature.


John C. Morley: (08:08)

I think this is the bomb. All right, so before you used to do, let's say, you wanted to do any type of speech-to-text, you would have this little microphone button. I'm unsure if you guys can see it on my back. You may not be able to see it so well cause it's kind of nighttime. But anyway, there's a microphone button on the right. If I touch that button, the button will have a little gray circle, okay? And it's all filled in. So it's a circle that's fully gray. When I touch it, I can not only talk, but then I also can speak. So let's say I wanted to touch it, and I'll say this is a test to see how well the new iOS 16 point x software actually works.


John C. Morley: (09:07)

I can type around while it's doing that and turn it off, but I think this is a cool feature. I have also found that the new 16-point x, from what I've been seeing, has been a lot more accurate than I've seen on other iOS versions. Your people are saying, well, what were you trying to say? It just seems like it's a lot more on track, and the words that I say actually make sense, and it's not something that I shouldn't say. So you've probably had that happen before. All right, another great feature, gentleman. I thought this was really cool. Schedule email sent. All right, so you go to an email message that you're gonna, you're gonna basically send somebody, and all you do is you take an email that you're gonna send, I'm just gonna just pop one right here.


John C. Morley: (09:55)

And I click on my message here. And as soon as I start typing something, I have to type something for my little up arrow to go blue. Otherwise, it won't go blue. I can hold that. If I just touched it, it would send it. But if I hold it, it's a send now, send 8:00 AM tomorrow or send later. If I say send later, then it actually lets me pick the month. It lets me pick, you know, basically the date. Okay, and I can go pretty far. I can actually go, I haven't tried it too far, but I can go even into 2026. It looks like I can keep going for quite a while. And it looks like, you know, 10, 15, 20. So you can definitely send ways in the future. But again, if you do send it now, that's just like, just touching the button as you had before.


John C. Morley: (10:56)

Send 8:00 AM tomorrow, which is a pretty standard one that you're gonna send it at 8:00 AM tomorrow, or you can send it later. And then, of course, it will be in your draft, your, your, your box to go out, and then you can always remove it from that box, which I think is really cool. And I know a lot of us have been asking for this feature. I know in Outlook, for a very long time, people wanted to have, you know, scheduled sending an outlook, but guess what? The scheduled sending in Outlook is not there yet. So you could delay the deliverable messages. So you can delay the deliverable messages by up to two hours by creating a rule, but that's really not the same. So I think they got rid of the scheduling in Outlook. I think that's something they definitely should put back.


John C. Morley: (11:45)

But again, it's not there. But I think this is great because a lot of times you might be typing something at night and you don't necessarily want to send it at 10 or 11 o'clock or 12 o'clock at night. You want to send it the next morning, which I think is really cool. And you could pick different times for each message, but it is sent at 8:00 AM, which is great because many people will send mail at 8:00 AM in the morning. So kudos to Apple for coming up with that. A really good productivity feature that I think many of you, whether you're in business or just using it in your personal life, will find very, very handy. All right, so a lot of great iPhone features. I wanna dive into another great iPhone feature. H gentlemen, you know what that is?


John C. Morley: (12:28)

That is the Unsend feature. That's right. So Apple has now added the Unsend feature to the iPhone 16. And so how does, how does the iPhone Unsend feature work? Well, I thought you would never ask. So to unsend messages on the iPhone, iOS 16, you simply long press on the message, tap undo send, and press voila. The message is unsent. Now, you'll immediately see an animation where your message explodes into little pieces before it's gone completely. That is really cool. So how to turn on the Unsend messages on iPhone?

So you can recall a message that needs to be an iMessage in blue. That's really important. Tap and hold on to the sent text bubble until you see the options menu. Select the undo send, and the message will be deleted for the recipient's feed as well as yours. Hopefully, they have not read it yet, but if they haven't read it yet, well, you are in good shape.


John C. Morley: (13:29)

Now, people said to me how much time I have to unsend a message on my iPhone. That's a question people are asking me. So this feature is only available for up to two minutes after the message is sent. When a message is unset, it's removed from both the recipient and the sender with a no indicating that an unsend occurred. All right? So they may not necessarily know what you sent, but they're gonna know that you are meant to send something. What was that? Oh, I was just typing something stupid, I unsent. And they're probably like, well, what were you sending me? So that is really cool. I think that is kind of amazing. All right, so you can edit the message, or you can unsend the message. So, that's just really neat. And I think the other thing I really like about the iPhone, iOS 16 is that you can now add, if you have home automation, you can now add that home automation.


John C. Morley: (14:28)

Yes, ladies, and gentlemen, you can add it right to your lock screen. So if let's say you have, whether it's Alexa or you have other kinds of things, you can literally add a brand new wallpaper or the existing one you have, you can customize the one you have. So you can basically go right to your screen, and you can just choose what you want. Now what I think is cool about the iPhone is you can create different views, okay? You have the ability to create different views, and you have the ability to create what we call different focuses. So what is a focus? Well, I thought you would never ask me. Well, a focus is really cool. So you now can have a do not disturb focus, which we all know what a do not disturb focuses. And you can set into all these the similar things.


John C. Morley: (15:13)

So I'm just gonna read it to you once. But basically, you can set whether you wanna allow notifications from selected people, apps will be allowed, and others will be silenced, like people, apps, et cetera. So do not disturb by default; none are allowed. And the apps, none are allowed because if you're a member, what happened in the old version of iOS? There was a bug with this. And people that were in just your regular contact list seemed to be coming through when you were do not disturb, and people didn't know why. So you have an options section where you can silence notifications and show them on the lock screen. Maybe somebody was trying to call you or text you. You can just click it, and they can look at the phone, and oh, shoot, that person's been trying to call me for hours.

Now I can go check it out. You could dim the lock screen and darken the lock screen when the focus is on. You can hide notification badges if you wanna hide their apps, and your allowed notification list will continue to be badged if that's the way you have it set. You can turn it on automatically at a certain time and off at a certain time. And you can also, ladies and gentlemen, basically, pick, so you can say a time, you could say, when I arrive at work, when I arrive at this location, automatically happens when I open this application, it automatically happens. Automatically turn on do not disturb at relevant times throughout the day. Based on signals like your location, app usage, and more. You could do that as well. You have focus filters, so you can customize how your apps and your devices behave when the focus is on.


John C. Morley: (16:44)

So you can have different focus filters like calendars, mail messages, and other things like power mode. I think that it's really cool that you can have that information. So you can set up a do not disturb focus. You can have a personal focus, a sleep focus, and a work focus. And then, you have the ability to focus can be shared across your devices. Turning one on for this device will turn on for all of them. So if you have, like, I say, an iPhone, and then you have tablets, it can go across. So right now, it says to me that my focus status, my current focus status right now, is just the one that I have, and it's just on right now. So pretty and pretty easy to do. And I think you're gonna find this focus feature really cool because, you know, as I said, you can go in and choose people, you can basically allow notifications from, and then you can pick the people.


John C. Morley: (17:40)

So you're probably wondering, how does it pick the people? Well, it normally shows the last set of people you were calling or texting on the screen. You can also say add people, and then you can just go through, and you can pick them by a checkbox right in your thing. If you go to the very top and you were to pick something like you picked a couple of people, you can literally go to the top, you can go to list, you can even choose, go to all, you can choose all phone and showing your list, and then you can pick it there. So it tells me how many contacts I have, which I think is really cool. Something else that I really, really like a lot is it has the ability to tell if I have duplicate contacts.


John C. Morley: (18:26)

So when I go into my contacts, which is, you guys know how to do that, it's really easy. There's also new navigation, the way they do the search. So there's a little search bubble at the bottom. You touch search, and now I can actually type what app I'm looking for or what I want and will automatically find that very easily. I don't have to spend hours trying to find things. So I think that is definitely really cool. You know, definitely, you know, check that out. But there are many great features I feel you will definitely want to use. And check out; this is not an iOS version. That is a toy. This iOS version is probably the first version I've seen by Apple that seems to be targeted at professionals and even people using the phone casually to manage their lifestyle without sacrificing the way the phone was implemented.


John C. Morley: (19:24)

So, kudos to Apple. Kudos, kudos, kudos, really good. I don't give them a lot of kudos, but I definitely want to give them kudos on this. All right, so that's a lot about the features, I'll talk more about other iPhone features in future shows, but I definitely want to share that with you. And if you're on the fence about whether you should go to this version, do it. I can tell you that it has not been very troublesome. I've actually found that the battery life has been better. I think that is really, really cool. When you're on your lock screen, you know, you have your airplane mode, your Bluetooth, your Wi-Fi, and your cell cellular icon all there on the screen. And if you basically touch it, the cellular has green.


John C. Morley: (20:10)

If you take that off, then that means that you've turned off your cellular, which you don't want to do. If you tap airplane mode, it automatically puts the phone into airplane mode, and you'll notice the wifi is off. I can also then turn wifi back on. But one thing that's interesting is that if I'm on an airplane, I don't like the fact that it turns off my wifi because then I have to go back and turn it on again. So I'm not crazy about that. You have the focus from that screen, and I could pick whether I want to be and not disturb personal work or sleep without going crazy to all these extra screens. I have the ability to change my brightness right here, which you're gonna then do with your focus. I can set my volume right here, which I think is really cool.


John C. Morley: (20:55)

I can choose the lock. Just choose on the lock or basically the phone's locked or unlocked, so I can do that. So if I was on a screen, I could very easily change that. So, for example, if my phone was locked, I could just change that really, really easily. I think a lot of people are gonna find this helpful. I think it's definitely gonna be something. So in order to get to the screen, you go to your top right and pull down. So if you touch the little lock with the circle going basically clockwise, if it's in the white so as right now, if you have it, that means the phone is actually in the lock. It basically means portrait orientation lock-off.


John C. Morley: (22:00)

So if it's red portrait orientation lock is on. If it's in the white portrait, the lock orientation is off. So what the heck is portrait orientation lock? Well, I'm gonna explain this to you. So, portrait orientation lock is a new feature. And it's pretty cool because you can basically set your phone in a neat way. So on the iPhone, the screen will follow and rotate to the landscape orientation when you tilt your device on its side. Turning on the portrait orientation lock will freeze the screen so that the screen will stay in place no matter which way your iPhone is turned. That's pretty cool. I think that it's cool to get you to that screen. You just go to your top right, swipe down, and you'll see that. Now next to that porch orientation lock, you have two little screens.


John C. Morley: (23:01)

If you touch that, you can actually do screen mirroring and pick a word of screen mirror two. Really cool. You have your flashlight option right there. Next to that, you have your timer, which I think is really cool, right there on the screen. You also have your calculator right on that screen. Very useful. And you have your camera right on that screen, right? So a lot of useful features. You have a little ear; on the ear, you could turn background sounds off, or you can connect the compatible audio device and listen live. So you might be saying, me, John, what is the new background off feature on the iPhone? Well, just explain it to you again. It's really simple. It removes the background. So when we talk about the background here, we're talking about the background sound, not the background picture.


John C. Morley: (23:53)

Okay? So the background sound is pretty cool. And it will turn off background noise on the iPhone, and you can tap background sounds to be on. And basically, it has a little intelligent engine, which I think is neat. And you might say, why do I need sound and background? Research shows that listening to music and background noise can offer various benefits, including improved cognitive performance, task performance, concentration, energy levels, and mood. So just a little bit about that. I think that it is really cool that they have hearing aid compatibility. You have the ability on the right side of the phone to see not only the level of your phone but the percentage right there on the top right. Right now, I can see that I have my camera icon, and I also have my microphone icon.


John C. Morley: (24:46)

Now, right now, it says the camera was used recently. Okay. And then, if I go to the microphone, it can tell me whether the microphone is, so I use the camera right now, but I haven't used it in a while. So just the microphone right now is in the orange State. So it's really cool information. It has the last song that I was playing on iTunes. So really cool. Now, on the bottom right of this screen (I could touch it), which is right next to the ear, it comes up. And guess what it does. It brings me right into my notes. That is absolutely amazing. All right, let's skip back on. I have a lot more great stuff to share with you for today, but I hope you enjoyed my little reveal of some of my favorite iPhone features.


John C. Morley: (25:33)

So definitely check those out. All right, well, Qualcomm chipmaker has said that the automotive features business will expand to 30 billion. Yeah, I didn't say a million. I said billion, millions to six, billions to nine. So the US chip designer QCLM said just this past week that its auto business pipeline increased to 30 billion, up more than 10 billion since its third quarter. Results were announced in late July. This jump in the future business was in regard to its new Snap Dragon digital chassis product used by car makers and their suppliers. Qualcomm said, I quote, it's Automotive Investor Day. The Snap Dragon digital chassis can provide assisted and autonomous driving technology, as well as in-car infotainment and cloud connectivity, hopefully better than the Tesla, which seems to catch on fire when it has a little bit too much play time cuz nobody wants to smash a window or figure out how to get out alive of their vehicle.


John C. Morley: (26:48)

That's definitely not a good thing. All right, so in other news, we have the Senate panel, which I think is really, really cool. Ladies and gentlemen. The Senate panel approves a bill to give news organizations more power against tech platforms. What's this about? Earlier this week, the US Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve a bill to allow news organizations to band together to negotiate with Alphabet Incs, Google, and Metas, Facebook and win more revenue. According to a congressional eight, the bill passed the committee by a vote of 15 to seven. It must now go to the Senate for their approval. A similar bill is before the US House representative. I don't know. I don't know if this is gonna be good or not. We have to see what's gonna happen.


John C. Morley: (27:45)

But unlike other bills aimed at reigning in big tech, some progressive groups oppose this measure, including public knowledge on the grounds that it favors big broadcasters like news corporations, Sinclair, Comcast, NBCU, et cetera. Opposing the bill are two technology industry trade groups, Facebook and Google, which belong to the computer and Communications Industry Association and net choice. So we're gonna have to see, is this gonna help? I'm not sure, but it depends on, I guess, how the bill is handled and how it's maintained and enforced. I think that's really what's important about this particular bill. So we'll have to stay tuned for that. Alright, ladies, and gentlemen, let's talk about Japan's new cyborg cockroach. This new cockroach that they've come out with is pretty cool. I mean, this cockroach they're talking about will do some amazing things.


John C. Morley: (28:53)

And you might say, John, what's it gonna do? Well, this new cockroach could be coming to a disaster area near you. But what is it all about? Well, the whole idea is that it can very easily find people after earthquake strikes and others that may be trapped under rubble, et cetera. But the potential application is a recent breakthrough by a Japanese researcher who demonstrated the ability to mount backpacks of solar cells and electronics on the bugs and control their motion by remote control. And so, the team at the Thin Film Device Laboratory at the Japanese research giant Reichen developed a flexible solar cell film that's only four microns thick. That's 1/25th the width of human hair. Wow. And can fit on the insect's abdomen. So the film allows the roach to move freely while the solar cell generates enough power to process and send directional signals into the sensory organs of the bugs.

The batteries inside the small robot do run out quickly, so the time for expiration becomes shorter. And they said, and I quote, A key benefit of a cyborg insect is that when it comes to an insect's movement, the insect is causing itself to move. So the electricity required is nowhere near as much. The team chose Madagascar hissing cockroaches for the experiments because they are big enough to carry the equipment and have no wings that would get in the way. Even when the backpack and film are glued to their backs, the bugs can traverse small obstacles or write themselves when flipped over. I think that's an issue because a lot of technology that's put out there can become useless when it comes into an obstacle, falls down a stair, or something like that, right? We need to be able to get back or autonomously without human intervention, especially if it's in a disaster environment, right?


John C. Morley: (31:02)

Otherwise, it would be no good to anyone. So research still has a long way to go, as they said. And the Riker research team uses a specialized computer and wireless Bluetooth signal to tell the cyborg roach to turn left, causing it to scramble in that general direction. But when given the right signal, the bug turned in six circles. So a little bit of an issue, you know, that turning left, right, but giving the right signal went in circles. So this is a cyber backpack with 5,000 yen, which is $35 worth of parts purchased at Tokyo's electronics District. And they're manufacturing them pretty cheap. Now, if they're manufacturing them for that kind of money, it might be the same for John. So what is this mean? So $35 could mean that the bug could be somewhere around a hundred bucks.


John C. Morley: (32:03)

I think once they put more r and d time into it, we're going to find that it's probably in a few hundred dollars more because we all know nothing works well, even if we have good hardware; if we don't have good software, right? Or firmware. So that's gonna be important that they've tested all that out. So lots of great stuff, you know, definitely happening. But if you had to say to me, Jonn, you know, the new tech news has to be, you know, what's been going forward. And I have to say that there is a lot of news out there, a lot of breaking news. The biggest thing I think right now that's been going on besides the chip challenges that have been happening is, you know, what's really gonna happen with technology and robots? And the other issue, which I think is really cool, is the UK is examining cloud service.


John C. Morley: (33:07)

And right now, it's being dominated by Microsoft and Google. So do we have a monopoly here with Amazon, Microsoft, and Google? I think we do. And so, do we wanna keep building other types of digital farms out there? Or do we want to be at the mercy of just, let's say, one or two companies that are gonna predicate what's actually going on? See, I think that's the biggest problem, even what's happening, you know, with Amazon Fresh. And you might say, John, so what is the problem with Amazon Fresh markets? Well, Amazon Fresh is having some issues. Let's just say that. So the solution to a problem that doesn't exist, what's going wrong for Amazon Fresh, is probably the biggest headline you see everywhere. Amazon is reportedly pausing the aggressive UK rollout of its Amazon Fresh Convenience stores following a few lackluster sales at its 19 existing London locations.


John C. Morley: (34:21)

So when leak documents not too long ago revealed Amazon's plans to roll out a further 260 Amazon fresh stores in the UK by the end of 2024, it seemed the online retail giant had everything it needed to succeed as a brick-and-mortar grocer. The massive brand's deep pockets, a history of disrupting retail, and early success in the US. The main attraction of convenience stores is their cashless experience using the same kinds of technologies found in self-driving cars. Amazon is able to track which items customers have picked up in stores and charge their cars automatically when they walk out. However, I think there are still some challenges. And as we said, the plans in the UK have been put on ice. According to the sudden day times, the retailer has walked away from dozens of potential Amazon fresh sites. But the question is why? Is it inflation? What is it? So retail consultants and founders, such as Richard Talks retail by Richard Hyman, say, and I quote, he wasn't surprised to hear the rollout of Amazon Fresh has faltered, quote, Amazon's attempts that physical retailing have generally given far too little emphasis to the retail bit. He argues they built it all on a tech element that is copyable and ultimately isn't enough to swing it.


John C. Morley: (36:00)

We all know that Amazon's about money, but they don't care about you. They don't care about me. And you know what? They don't care about what's best for our country, communities, people, families, and life. They just have one mission. Let's do what we need to do to keep making more money. We don't care who we hurt as long as it's not us. That's a terrible motto. But I have to tell you the truth, and this is what's going on. I mean, Amazon has never really been our friend. You know, their philosophy is that if something doesn't work, do something else. But they're also philosophy. If you're unhappy with them, don't buy from them. But yet they monopolize things, and then they buy things out, and then you can't get them other places.


John C. Morley: (36:56)

I think Amazon has a lot to learn about stores, and the concept of getting rid of people is a problem. I mean, they want a technology system to verify people's age and then sell things like alcohol. I don't know. I see this as a problem, and I find that investors are going to slow down, okay? They're going to slow down because I think they're really concerned about what the people are going to think. And our last story for tonight, I think you're gonna find a really good one. And that is something that has been talked about for a very long time, and it's actually called digital transformation, and it's revolutionizing how we supply energy. Now, that's pretty cool in itself, right? But what is this all about? I mean, what does it really mean?


John C. Morley: (38:20)

I think it means that there's definitely been a lot of research in this area. And so, digital transformation is starting to shape our world in a new way. Now, I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I'm saying that we need to be a little more cognizant of what's happening. So digital transformation, they claim that it is blurring the lines between physical, digital, and biological spheres. Cloud computing, AI, big data, fourth industrial revolution for IR are shaping the aspects, the personality, and the character of people's lives, right? And so, what does this mean? Well, some of the technologies utilized in oil and gas include artificial intelligence, blockchain, digital twin, a virtual model of integrating digital solutions designed to provide a real-time representation of physical assets, robotic process automation or RPA more on cloud, IoT, which you all know as the Internet of things. And then we have iiOT. So that is basically the interrelated computing devices and machines that are digitally on board to enhance everyday life.


John C. Morley: (39:54)

We see more with robots and drones, right? Virtual, augmented reality, 3D printing, whether it's diving underwater, whether it's bugged like the cyborg that we were talking about, whether it's new types of threat responses, whether it's making decisions that humans should be making, I think that's our big challenge. We're deploying all this technology, but do we really understand how it's gonna interface? And how is it gonna affect people in our world? If we don't know that, we shouldn't implement it. If we haven't tested it, right? And I'll say the same thing I had said time and time again years ago. It's great to have the technology to give us insight and to have a human check something out, but we should never use technology to be the final answer. Whether that's in someone's life, whether that's their care of life, or whether that's in any type of service being performed could be a medical service for a human being.


John C. Morley: (41:02)

It should never be a hundred percent autonomous because it's acting on data. But I feel that data is not personal. And because of that, we're now saying that people are numbers. And I don't think that's where we want to go. I know it's not where I want to be. I think we should use technology as a tool that allows us to research things and figure out how they should be done in actual live life. Not well. Let's just stick it to life and hope it works. No, you see, the people that are dictating this are the ones that are putting the money in, ones that are creating. But I think as a digital creator, inventor, or innovator, whether robotics or technology, it doesn't matter what space it's in or programming. We must be conscious civil human beings who understand we're building tools. And we have to understand that we're building them for the best good of all concerned.


John C. Morley: (42:13)

And that these tools should never be making decisions a hundred percent on their own. They should just be watchdogs to check things. If they're doing a process and that process is not life-binding. Fine. But we should never have the machines make the decision on something that could be potentially disastrous, potentially lose even just one life. Ladies and gentlemen, I am John C.
