Automated Machine Generated Transcript:

[00:00:00] Craig Peterson: They would take over TikTok. They would literally own it and operate it in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, other countries, which are really concerned about what China's been doing.

Hey, I was on this morning with Mr. Jack Heath. We even got our friend, Justin, involved. He was talking about some of these conspiracy theories regarding the White House and what they want to get rid of Tik-Tok.

According to him, it's a campaign thing, but I think I straightened him out pretty well. This is Craig Peterson. I was on this morning, on New Hampshire today. And here we go with Jack Heath.

Jack Heath: Speaking of Tik-Tok. We're going to go to our tech talk guy to talk a little Tik-Tok with our tech talk guy. Get it. Tech talk.

Craig. Good morning. What's going on with this TikTok? I'm barely familiar with it. I know that one guy in New Hampshire though. I did remember this in the Keene area. I think does some kind of amusing, it takes images. I'm doing his music and it's he's got hundreds of thousands of TikTok viewers.

[00:01:00] Justin McIssac: My, my kids have TikTok. They're both insane for every

Jack Heath: tell us what it is, Justin, and then Craig can give us his take

Justin McIssac: It's this video app where a, you can take video and that sound, you can add images. You can do different effects, like a green screen in the background, and they get shared, shared, and commented on and stuff like that.

It is the latest craze. During quarantine, a lot of kids are doing different TikTok dances that go viral.

Jack Heath:  In a creative tool with a lot of videos.

Justin McIssac: Yeah. Yeah,

Craig Peterson: Yeah and TikTok has built into it of all, a whole bunch of stuff. In fact, right now, if you're a musician, the place to be is TikTok.

It's the number one music site right now, generally speaking. There's a lot of competitions on it where it's a, let's do this, let's do that. And so people try and one option. The other person and the kids are having a lot of fun.

Jack Heath: My question in the news today, why is president speak with CEO of Microsoft about buying it?

And there's a question and concern about China [00:02:00] what's going on?

Craig Peterson: Yeah, this is very concerning, frankly, because it is an app and it's living on our phones and we're giving away some personal information and that's where the President's very concerned because remember now the socialist, the communist government in China has control of it every company in China. It is demanding many times from companies, complete client lists, et cetera, which is why I'm absolutely anti-Lenovo for instance, and Lenovo PCs.

But with TikTok what's been happening is the kids have been using it. So we're concerned about having their usernames and the GPS coordinates being sent to China. This means that they can easily tell where people live, who their contacts are, who they're connected to in the online world. Then that's a security problem.

Jack Heath: Interesting. I guess you think Microsoft is going to get involved here or not?

[00:03:00] Craig Peterson: Yeah. Microsoft last week was very tight-lipped about it. This week. Microsoft has admitted that it's been talking with the whole of Whitehouse. Trying to figure out what to do here.

They would take over TikTok. They would literally own it and operate it in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, other countries, which are really concerned about what China has been doing. We caught TikTok just about three weeks ago grabbing your copy buffer every second. In fact, multiple times a second, which means if you had a password that you had copied and were pasting in, or you had a bank account number that you had copied TikTok now had a copy of your bank account number, anything that you had copied to paste on your phone, right?

Whether or not you're planning on pasting it into TikTok. Okay.

[00:04:00] So these other countries are worried about it as well.  Microsoft is saying, yeah, we're not hot and heavy on this, but they're going to finish talking with Bytedance, which is the owner of TikTik no later than  September 15th. Six weeks minimum before anything starts happening.

And then once it does start happening, it's going to take months because Microsoft says it's going to do a complete code review. Look at all of the software, look at what it's doing. But initially, what they're going to do is just try and move it all to the US on US servers.

Justin McIssac: Yeah. So a couple of things here, Jack.

[00:05:00] So first I think it was four to five months ago. There was a big TikTok fellowship in the US military. When troops would have downtime, they would do like silly TikTok things, which is basically what the app is ostensively for. So I think it was the US military warned all the troops to stop using TikTok. You can be giving away information to China, like where you are and things like that. Yeah, which you don't jeopardize your own different countries to have. The other thing is it's opened up a bit of a debate as maybe not a debate, but a discussion. You're giving away your information all time while you're also giving it away to Jeff Bezos and to Mark Zuckerberg and all these other people. At what point are you not giving all your data away to everybody anyway.

The third thing was. I don't think we mentioned this. The president over the weekend on Friday said he was going to ban TikTok

Jack Heath: Right. That's another part of this.

Justin McIssac: Just wipe it out. Yeah. And, so two things from that, some of that I believe has to do with giving data away to China. The other thing was there was a viral movement on TikTok to try and, kinda mess with the different rallies. I think they got the president's attention.

Jack Heath: I think there's another story. In the middle of everything you just said, Justin and Craig, and that is, I don't have a playbook for the Biden camp or the Trump camp, but I've noticed, and the President did it the other day when he was talking about Herman Cains passing.

When he read, he went back to the China virus. I don't know if you caught it, and I predict, and I'm not saying it's right or wrong. I'm just saying it okay. Analysis here. As we get closer to this general election, post conventions in the, really intensifying. 2016, who talked about taking it on China, who talked about China.

[00:06:00] I think President Trump is going to get, I think you just, you heard it here. It's saying right or wrong. I'm not asking you again, enter politics, but the ads that are coming out, Paul said this batch of ads you take on Joe Biden, watch for the whole China piece, right or wrong becoming a more prevalent part of the Trump campaign. That's why he mentioned the TikTok thing, the virus, stealing our intelligence, all the stuff about China. I just think it's going to be a big part of the general election. I may be wrong. There's some commentary

Craig Peterson: I think your right on that. A good reason to, but I've seen it firsthand. China's stealing our stuff.

It's been incredible. I've seen businesses completely turned into nothing. Destroyed because China stole their information.

Justin McIssac: Jack, one thing you are saying the name wrong. Its JINA.

Jack Heath: We come back. We're going to check-in
