Tech News Today 1685: Samsung's Gift Horse  

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is part of a courtroom battle between Oculus and ZeniMax Media, a videogame publisher that accused Oculus of the theft of critical technology that made its way into the finalized Oculus Rift headset. Zuckerberg is confident that Oculus products were not based in any way on ZeniMax's technology.

According to a note to developers spotted by The Guardian, prices for apps in the Apple store are going up in the UK, India, and Turkey. The price hikes will affect apps for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Android Wear 2.0 is expected along with a duo of new smartwatches created in a partnership with LG and Google.

We'll finally have our self-flying cars by the end of this year, at least according to attention seekers at AirBus. At a tech conference in Munich an executive at the European aircraft maker says they will test a single-seat flying taxi prototype in Oregon by the end of 2017.

Episode #293 – Does Significance Drive You?  

The thing that’s probably keeping you from actually getting what you want.

On this episode Russell talks about the first time he met Tony Robins and what he learned about himself when driving in a car with him. He talks about the importance of not being driven by significance.

Here are some of the interesting things in this episode:

Find out how Russell felt meeting Tony Robins for the first time. Hear how Tony helped Russell realize what drives him, and why it needed to change. And Find out why being driven by significance will lead to a miserable life, and why you should strive to be driven by love and connection instead.

So listen below to find out how Russell has changed his perspective since meeting Tony Robins.

---Transcript---

Good morning everybody, welcome to Marketing In Your Car. It is so cold here. Insanely cold. All of the ice, or the snow is now shards of glass and it’s crazy. That was the noise, if you’re wondering why. I was driving over the shards of glass in my car.

Alright, so today I have a very special message and this one’s important for everybody including me. Alright so I’ll tell the background of this story. A lot of you guys know I talk about Tony Robins a lot. He’s coming to Funnel Hacking Live, I’ve been a big Tony fan for forever, as long as I can remember. And the first time I met him was a really cool story.

So I went to UPW, actually let me step back. What happened is I was at my house one day working when all the sudden my phone rang, I picked it up and it was somebody on Tony’s team saying, “Hey, Tony Robins want to meet you. Can he meet you today?” and I was like, “Is he in Boise?” He’s like, “No, he’s in Salt Lake, can you come over. He wants to meet you.” I was like, “I’m in Boise.” And he’s like, “Oh, I thought you lived in Salt lake, that won’t work then. He’s going to be in Tron the next week doing UPW. Can you come and be his guest and then he’ll have a chance to meet you there.” I was like alright, how cool is that, yes.

So I booked my everything to go to UPW the next week, and I’d never been to a Tony event, I didn’t know what it was. I assumed it was like a marketing event. So I showed up with my backpack and laptop and I was going to sit in the back and take notes. And I get there and people are jumping and dancing. If you’ve ever been to a Tony event it’s closer to a rock concert than a seminar. Anyway, I was not expecting that. By the end of day one you walk on fire, day two I had shin splints, I lost my voice completely. That’s how crazy it is. So if you haven’t gone yet, you should really, really go.

At the event, first thing he teaches this really cool concept called the six human needs and I don’t have time to go through all of them right now, but I need to touch on it, because it’s important for the next part of it. So basically the six human needs, there’s four human needs of the body. There’s certainty, humans want to be certain. And then there’s variety, you want things to be crazy. Those are two needs that kind of conflict with each other, but they’re both there. And then there’s significance, we want to feel great about ourselves. And then there’s love and connection. I think I’ve done a podcast in the past about this, but I could go on for, I could teach a two day seminar just on that because it’s so cool. And then there’s the needs of the spirit, which are growth and contribution which is a whole other….anyway, we could go deep but I want you to understand that there’s those four.

So significance, love and connection, certainty and variety. Those are the four that we have to get met in our life. And there’s one for you. Just so you guys know, there’s one that’s your driving force in life. You’re either significance driven, certainty driven, variety driven, or you are love and connection driven, and it’s interesting.

So I’m going to leave that there. I wish I could go deeper, but I can’t in this podcast, because I won’t make it to the office, it’ll be a long call. So anyway, so I’m at UPW, he teaches this stuff, I’m fascinated by it and then the next day I’m supposed to meet him. So day two of the event, Tony’s not facilitating it, there’s somebody else facilitating it. So I started getting text messages from Tony’s assistant. “Hey Tony wants to meet with you in an hour.” I’m like, “Alright.” Then I get a text like 45 minutes later, “It’s going to be two hours from now.”

Anyway, throughout the whole day, I think our meeting was supposed to be at 10 in the morning, I was getting texts every 30 minutes for 10 hours. They kept pushing and pushing and pushing and finally I get a text, “Okay, Tony is ready to meet you. Here is the address.” This is pre-uber and I’m like, “Okay.” So I jump in a taxi and give them the address and they’re like, “This is like 45 minutes away.” I’m like, are you serious, is Tony not in the hotel?

So I get in the car and we’re drivin

Not Dead Yet - Rick's Pick 2016 - The Best Radio You Have Never Heard Vol. 302  

NEW FOR JANUARY 15, 2017

For a full ten years now, (math properly checked this time) BRYHNH producer Rick From New York is tasked for what has developed into one of every year's most anticipated shows; Rick's retrospective of all the best tracks played on BRYHNH from the previous year, affectionately known as Rick's Picks.

Now to be sure, this "end of year Best Of list" is not what you might automatically expect. This is Rick From New York meticulously sifting through Volumes 274 - 300 and picking the finest tracks, new releases and classics you may or may not have ever heard before, that graced the BRYHNH feed from the past year.
And again, Rick has picked a list of winners like a six year old can pick a booger.
As you will read below, there is a hearty dispute over the linear nature of the events that led up to the thematic content dispute between episodes 301 and 302 that Rick attributes to a Mexican cactus debauch. But I heartily say this can only be settled by a Mexican cactus summit on my turf. Where my people can provide protection.
It's was only business, Rick. I always liked you.

So as the bell rings to start round one, I present to you; Not Dead Yet - Rick's Picks 2016


We now join Rick in progress . . .

I've been doing this for a while now.

In December, every year since 2006, I get a little kernel of anxiety in the pit of my stomach as the deadline for the January 15th "Rick's Picks" approaches. I want to do a good job of representing BRYHNH, staying true to the Brand while inserting my own take on the year's offerings, but... am I up to it?

A couple of times I thought about trying to back out because, after all, December can be a crazy-busy time and believe it or not, putting this podcast together has more to it than you might think, as I have written about previously. This year the kernel became a throbbing mass as I realized that my ears had died to most of my musical interests. Because the nature of my obsessions are not fully understood, or under control, I am constantly led down odd streets, and sometimes... blind alleys. How else to explain my year-long obsession with the music of "Hamilton: an American Musical"?

December arrived once again, along with the gnawing realization that I had only a very short time to immerse myself in the BRYHNH universe to pull out an acceptable contribution. Well, inspiration arrived just like a shiny Christmas morning; how could I not acknowledge the passing of so many music icons in 2016? All I had to do was cherry-pick the years' podcasts for my dearly departed playlist! Perfect! And easy, I thought. I promptly emailed Perry Bax with my idea, to which he responded with a hearty thumbs up, and encouragement that I was "on a good track".

Imagine my surprise when on 01.01.17 "In the Wake of 2016" drops. Bowie, Prince, Russell, Frey and Emerson...all there. Even a belated Leonard Cohen track I had planned on using on my fadeout! Was I upset? No. Taken aback? Definitely. But what's a bit of larceny between friends, eh? I may have emailed during a Mexican Holiday Tequila Debauch and in the cold light of day (ouch!), I'm sure Mr. Bax thought it was HIS idea.
Just to prove that I remain light on my feet after all these years, here is my musical riposte to "In the Wake of 2016".

Ladies and Gents, I give you "Rick's Picks for 2016: Not Dead Yet".

Alive and kicking, Rick from New York

Tech News Today 1681: Take the Tech News  

Alphabet continues to pare down its many moonshot efforts by shuttering Project Titan, its solar powered drone program. And according to Bloomberg, Alphabet is also in the process of trying to sell its Skybox Imaging Satellite business, which it renamed Terra Bella last year.

Verizon has confirmed that it will kick grandfathered unlimited users off its networks, if they are data hogs. If you use 200 gigabytes a month, you'll be required to switch to a capped plan or Verizon will show you the door.

Samsung says that more than 96 percent of its Galaxy Note 7 devices have been returned thanks to its recall after a number of exploding battery incidents. Thanks to the high number of returns, the Federal Aviation Administration has lifted its requirement that airlines issue pre-boarding messages warning against bringing the device onto flights.

Instagram is adding full-screen ads to your stories, but you can skip them. Copying Snapchat's stories has been a successful move for Instagram. Since launching Stories five months ago, Instagram has gone from 100 million daily users to 150 million daily users.

Pre-orders for Nintendo's new console, The Switch, will begin on Friday morning at 9AM eastern, snagging gamers a place in line to get the system when it officially launches sometime in March.

Matt McFarland from CNN discusses how taxi and truck drivers in upstate New York are pushing for severe restrictions to keep self driving cars out for up to 50 years.

Our Miss Brooks - Taxi Fare (06-19-55)  


Taxi Fare (Aired June 19, 1955)
Our Miss Brooks, an American situation comedy, began as a radio hit in 1948 and migrated to television in 1952, becoming one of the earlier hits of the so-called Golden Age of Television, and making a star out of Eve Arden (1908-1990) as comely, wisecracking, but humane high school English teacher Connie Brooks. The show hooked around Connie's daily relationships with Madison High School students, colleagues, and pompous principal Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon), not to mention favourite student Walter Denton (future television and Rambo co-star Richard Crenna, who fashioned a higher-pitched voice to play the role) and biology teacher Philip Boynton ( Jeff Chandler), the latter Connie's all-but-unrequited love interest, who saw science everywhere and little else anywhere. THIS EPISODE: June 19, 1955. "Taxi Fare" - CBS network. Miss Brooks has no money to pay off a cab driver, who becomes a constant companion. The system cue and the commercials and/or public service announcements have been deleted. Al Lewis (writer), Arthur Alsberg (writer), Bob Rockwell, Eve Arden, Gale Gordon, Gloria McMillan, Jane Morgan, Jeff Chandler, Jerry Hausner, Joseph Kearns, Larry Berns (producer, director), Lud Gluskin, Richard Crenna. 23:46. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Late Night Woman's Hour  

Lauren Laverne discusses the delights and perils of parties with seasoned partygoers Fran Cutler, Brigid Keenan, Bryony Gordon and Zing Tsjeng. Fran Cutler is the queen of party organisers, and thinks nothing of dialling Cher's number to ask her to perform at one of her legendary 'dos. Writer Bryony Gordon is a former 3am girl whose idea of a good night out is a party for two in her back garden with her husband. Editor of UK Broadly, Zing Tsjeng, is no stranger to the coolest parties in town, but always leaves at 3am when the 'blue plastic bag brigade' switch off Britney and start playing intelligent dance music. Writer Brigid Keenan is a former 'trailing diplomatic spouse' and once spent an entire party locked in a loo, dressed as Mary Queen of Scots. They are your guides for this Late Night Woman's Hour on partying. So have you fixed your hair? Lined your stomach? Drunk a glass of water? Your taxi is waiting.... The broadcast edition of this programme will be available on Iplayer soon after transmission. A longer version will be available as a podcast.

'He took everything away from me'  

Victims of slavery can be British - the story of one such woman is told in the memoir 'Sex Slave.' Under the pseudonym Anna Ruston, she writes about meeting a taxi driver she calls Malik when she was 15. He was kind to her but when she went to his house expecting to meet his family, she was held captive and subjected to sadistic sexual and psychological abuse for the next 13 years. Eventually she managed to escape. She's been speaking to our reporter Samantha Haque - her words re-voiced to protect her identity. (Image: Anonymous woman, credit: Thinkstock)
