Automated Machine Generated Transcript:

Craig Peterson: [00:00:00] Hey, you had another fun time with Mr. Jim Polito this morning, and we went a little off-script, right? If you get my newsletter, you see all of the articles that I sent you now to Jim and the other radio shows I'm on.  You might know, I notice that today he went off script and we got into what will happen if there is a Biden administration with technology. How are things going to change?

I think I surprised him on a couple of things. By the way, I think they're going to change for the worse. I prefer having the market take care of this. People who are professional investors, venture capitalists, angel investors, they are lucky if they get it right one time out of 10. Government protecting and controlling the direction of technology and putting money into it, they never are It's just amazing what they've done to mess everything up and ruin lives and waste trillions of dollars. Yes, of course, I don't want the government involved.

We got into that and the alternative to Google that Apple's developing, that you may already be using that you're just not aware of. 

The way I put these together, by the way, is I record the stream online from the radio station.  In this case, there was a problem so we're missing the first,  30 ish seconds.  We're going to pick it up here mid-stream as I answer Jim's question about what will happen or what's likely to happen if Biden does assume the presidency when it comes to technology.

So here I am mid-sentence.

With the Biden presidency, this concept of the fairness doctrine. Yes. But on the internet, they were trying to put a thing in place where the federal government controlled the internet and what we're seeing as a problem right now with Facebook and YouTube and Twitter, et cetera. Would go internet-wide.

We've got to treat every bit fairly because every bit counts.  The bit that guy, who's a gamer living in mom and dad's basement that bit where he's got trillions of them a day should be treated the same way as grandma that might have a million a day, tried to get cat pictures and pictures of the grandkids.

Now grandma would end up having to pay for that little kid living in the basement, playing streaming video games all day. Pay for his internet because it has to be quote-unquote fair. That's my biggest concern

Jim Polito: [00:02:50] Now the Democrats don't have control of the Senate.  They could have a very weak, tie if the two races in Georgia the first week in January go the other way. I think it's January 5th. They would have a tie-breaker with Kamala Harris. But do you think that prevents a lot of this from happening or can Joe Biden through executive order? Do some of these things?

Craig Peterson: [00:03:18] that's a bigger question, right? That I get answered. I'd have to go to the Supreme court as to whether or not I had an executive order and could actually work here It's Ajit Pai as the head of the FCC.  Really made things better for us as a country, frankly, here.  All of the things they said would happen if we didn't put this fairness doctrine in place, didn't happen.

In fact, the opposite happened. We have had more investment in the internet.

The other thing is 5g.  What does 5g mean? Because if they decide that everybody needs 5g coverage, then we've got a bit of a problem. 5g for most of the cellular carriers, this is less true for T-Mobile. It's very true for Verizon. Verizon would have to have cell sites. Everywhere all over the country, because you can't have, those wonderful looking fake trees, every few miles, when it comes to 5g, you've got to have them every kilometer or less half a mile or so.

Jim Polito: [00:04:28] You know that,

go ahead. Go ahead. Because I have a question about that.

Craig Peterson: [00:04:32] sure. so what would end up happening is they would be forced to spend billions and billions of dollars. In order to broaden the coverage of the five networks, which would raise all of ours, Dell bills, smartphone bills, everything else. So there are so many things they can do. Yeah.

Jim Polito: [00:04:51] Yeah. That's now 5g just while we're on this. And I just want a quick answer. 5g is incredible, but it doesn't work like 4g. It doesn't work like the typical cell tower. You need them to be close to you to have 5g.

Craig Peterson: [00:05:07] You got it a small town, you don't have them on almost every corner and then a big city, like New York, if it ever comes back to life, you'd have multiple 5g cell sites just walking down one little block.

Jim Polito: [00:05:20] Oh my God. See, now that's the thing. You know what that almost reminds me of going back to being hardwired again, because with a cell tower, you can have distance and you can be in a remote area and still have a little bit of a signal 5g you can't, no, let's hope they keep three and 4g there. Do you know what I mean?

Craig Peterson: [00:05:45] They will. In fact, there is right now a satellite constellation being launched that provides 4g LTE from space. Yeah. as well as these newer technologies, like Starlink, which we talked about a few months ago, by the way, it is rolling out right now. And you can get it pretty easily, which is promising that gigabyte worth or gigabit.

I shouldn't say worth of speed. It's not anywhere near that right now. Ultimately it will be so five, G's going to even see competition,

Jim Polito: [00:06:18] Which would be fine with me. Which would be fine with me if they did. Alright, now

let's move on to Apple coming up with a search engine. Now look it, every time you talk with a person, a business person, they're always wanting to talk about where they show up in a Google search.

It seems that's all they ever talk about in Google, owns this market. Owns it. Yahoo was the first member. Yeah. They used to do that. Now, Google just took over and, so Apple is going to give them some competition. Like Microsoft tried with Bing, but how do you compete with that monster? And again, I would, rather than it be a different company than Apple, but is there a chance Apple can compete with Google in the search market?

Craig Peterson: [00:07:09] Oh, there is a very big  If you have an iPhone and you've updated to some of the more recent releases of iOS you're actually using Apple's new search engine.

Jim Polito: [00:07:23] I just got an update the other day, everything is changed on my phone.

Craig Peterson: [00:07:28] Yeah. Yeah. So now when you're doing this SIRI searches or other basic searches, right from your iPhone. You are actually using Apple's new with search engine. They're looking to take that technology, which aims to actively they're testing it out now on you, but they're looking at taking that technology and having just like you go to Google to do a search.

You can go to Apple to do a search. Now you mentioned a few that have failed. Amazon had a nine. I don't know if you even knew about that one, but that was a general search engine that Amazon had. Yeah. Most people never heard of it. You mentioned duck go, which isn't just a kid's game anymore. I have had to move a lot of my searches from Google to duck go because Google, it used to be dead on all of the time.

It's still really good for the more advanced searches when I'm dealing with technology. But if I'm doing anything political, for instance, this whole thing about Sidney Powell with scorecard and hammer that she has been talking about, which by the way, if you've been following that at all, That's the same thing I've been warning about for 20 years that happened.

And Jim, you and I, you even talked about that. How could an election be stolen? And I gave the basic formula and it looks like they might've used it. And we'll talk about that as that comes more to the surface right now, it's just basic, but, then I've used duck duck go. Another one you might want to use is quant Q W A N T, which is out of France.

And I, as a researcher, I use another search software in this case that I run on my Mac called  D E V O N THINK, and what devon think lets me do is go back to the AltaVista days. Do you remember AltaVista search engine?

Jim Polito: [00:09:32] Yes. Oh my God. Yes. Alta Vista.

Craig Peterson: [00:09:35] Yeah. And with Alta Vista, you could use what are known as Boolean El operators in Boolean algebra. So with Devon think I can do as deep a study as I want to do with word relations, root words, everything.

Pull their initial results. Either diva I'm thinking crawl sites for me, or they can go into anything. They'll go into the library of Congress pull stuff. They'll do research papers, Ph.D. candidates stuff, all the way through extracting results from Google, Bing, and others and give me a much tighter and better search that I get ever had with anything else.

So I've been forced off Google now for most of what I do

Jim Polito: [00:10:17] We had an earthquake yesterday. I think it was w I think it was a tech talk guru moving off off Google completely.

It caused a tectonic shift in the plates. All right.

Wait, hold on a second. There we go. There we go. Now it's now mine. Now my stupid statement is complete. Craig. This was fascinating.

This was great. You always give us a lot to think about, especially from the perspective of, the politics of what's happening and how that will impact things for us as consumers.

So look, everybody wants you to listen to Craig's show it's on every Sunday at 11 o'clock on WTA G and W H Y N. And it's a great show.

The also the powers that be at the station, if there are spaces in the weekend, programming. They actually dropped the show in for an extra chance for you to listen to it. You can always go to the iHeart radio app to look for it, but Craig, how else do folks get in touch with you?

Craig Peterson: [00:11:20] They can certainly go to my website at Craig Peterson.com.

You'll find all kinds of stuff there. And let me make a promise right now to our listeners here, Jim. And that is probably not this weekend, but maybe next weekend on my weekend show, I will do a deep dive into these search engines and how you can get around using Google. And we'll talk about alternatives as well to YouTube and Twitter.

And, w we'll do that either. Probably not this weekend, but probably next week then.

Jim Polito: [00:11:52] Excellent. Craig, it's always great to have you every Tuesday at this time. And we look forward to talking with you next week. My friend.

Craig Peterson: [00:12:00] Take care.

Jim Polito: [00:12:01] Thank you, Craig Peterson, everybody. Really a nice guy.

Craig Peterson: [00:12:04] I think I went a little along in that segment.

Jim had to really bail fast. Anyways, everybody, take care. I shall return tomorrow. And of course this weekend, I'm hoping to have a live show, this week. we'll see how it goes, as opposed to a best of. We're doing all kinds of renovations at the house. Getting ready for Thanksgiving. It's just a mess.

Anyway. Take care, everybody. Bye-bye.
