iPhone 12 – IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT!?

by birtanpublished on November 2, 2020

Okay okay you got to see this because when I saw it at first I was like I don't want it but but then I was like I do want it what tech news in a way that doesn't suck the subscribe button in turn on notifications if you're sitting on the toilet right now yeah what's going on guys welcome back to front page tech fatah the show that gives you all these tech news Wendy tells me to another that is you yes me of course the still vociferous youtuber that is of course according to this article from Forbes yesterday we got lots of stuff to cover today in not lots of time yeah that made sense last show of the week

Let's do this okay so first up for the day's story numero uno this might be it the final update in the t-mobile Sprint merger thingy we got a date ladies and gentlemen April 1st that is supposedly when t-mobile and Sprint are trying to aim to finish the merger get it all done over what we've been dealing with this for a couple years they've been talking about it for more than a couple years I've been reporting on it for a good four years but they put out this press release ladies and gentlemen it is happening it is a happening according to Mike Seaver to his

T-mobile's current CEO and president but a reminder he's about to be the CEO in May when John ledger leaves he said with everything now approved the new agreement in place the focus is now on closing the transaction creating the brand-new t-mobile company according to him as early as April 1st so here we are finally we're at the finish line it is here it is happening it is official and more importantly finally Sprint customers you'll be able to make a real phone call and have service you won't have to like you know the thing that you do now where you try to make the phone

Call and you just you know your service has held together by good vibes and chewed-up bubble gum I mean I don't know if you've ever seen him this is this is what a sprint service tower looks like and the good news which is not a surprise after this is all said and done the name is just t-mobile that's the name of the company is gonna be the new t-mobile because if we named it sprint it would still feel icky and sticky so t-mobile it is April 1st alright next I've got some apple news for you some interesting really interesting Apple news actually

According to Bloomberg in by Bloomberg I mean the website not this guy Apple is actually weighing their options and may allow iPhone and iPad users to set third-party mail and browser apps as defaults instead of using the iOS defaults like Safari in the stock mail app which is very very not Apple and normally I would just laugh at this and not believe it what it is coming from Bloomberg and since we like to focus a lot on reputation in this show this is coming from Mark Herman specifically from Bloomberg and he especially with Apple stuff has a great track record

Even though at the surface it really doesn't make sense for Apple to do when you remember this it starts to make a little bit more sense we've been talking a lot about the lawsuits the arguments about whether Apple is a monopoly or not specifically their App Store the way they handle their App Store saying that Apple gives its own apps unfair advantage in the App Store over third party apps which to that I would say no shift absolutely they do they built the ranking thing what do you want I say the same thing about the Google Play Store like they built the platform of course

They should favor their apps more they built the house you're just renting it that's how it works but when you think of all the backlash in court battles Apple has had over this this might be their way of playing nice a little bit I mean sure I don't mind this I'll welcome this all the way because for people like us that care and want to make the changes we can do it and then for the people to buy it they can just use it normally and have no idea that this is a thing that you're allowed to do either way it's fine I welcome this I would also welcome with zero complaints the

Ability to about Siri for Google assistant and then maybe my phone wouldn't be so frakking stupid okay so next up we're gonna talk about Twitter and I want to warn you this is weird I don't like it and it's yucky there's a project underway behind the scenes at Twitter where they are considering showing labels if they believe a tweet is harmful or misleading or as they say harmful e misleading so this all leaked in a recent Twitter demo and effectively showed that they're considering putting little labels like this under tweets from politicians or

Other public figures if they believe that public figure has an influence in the tweet that they have tweeted has misinformation in it or lies the tweets in question would have little red or like orange labels underneath them applied to them that instead of just saying hey dis a real it would actually just include what they believe to be corrected information from fact checkers different journalists and another possibility being information supplied by other users yep that last one is indeed as terrible of an idea as it sounds in one version of this Twitter is

Considering giving users and moderators the ability to earn points or community badges if they contribute to this stuff in good faith and act as a good leader okay so before I mention anything else regarding this I would like to just slide my opinion in here real quick which is Frank a bunch of that so looking at these examples cool I am fine with this right I'm fine if the platform wants to do something like this there's just there's just one little tiny problem I do not trust Twitter to tell me what the truth is like not even a

Little bit I don't trust the fact checkers I certainly don't trust other Twitter users Frank no on a scale from 1 to all of them how many drugs are you on Twitter absolutely not No away I don't want this like not even a little bit this is the issue here this is where Twitter decides if they are a platform where our users freely publish stuff tweet stuff or if they are a publisher where they decide what information is more valuable I mean in this demo here the the tweets that are labeled not real lies or misleading those are not only they not only do they

Get those little tags under them those cute little badges are red or orange they also get shown less like they get suppressed hidden shadow banned like if you want this platform to be a platform be used as intended put the burden on the users to actually do the research and understand what the truth is cool but you telling us what is the truth and what is not the truth is especially letting other users tell me what is the truth and what's not the truth hey na you deciding what's true and what's not true what to elevate and what to suppress is it makes you a publisher

And less of a platform and that is that's kind of scary I'm gonna be honest if I knew that we could trust Twitter to tell us what is the truth and what's not cool I'm all for this put badges tell me what's real tell me wants to lie from politicians from public figures cool fine awesome but the problem is I don't trust that I don't trust Twitter to tell me what the truth is sorry sorry everybody else and last up for the day our favorite thing on this show fake fake iPhone renders so real quick this actually happened yesterday or the

Day before I don't remember all the days are blending together it's all the same man you know I saw this I was like okay so we're not gonna talk about that there's absolutely no reason but all day yesterday people were messaging me emailing me tweeting me this be like oh my god do you think this is real haha people no it's not nup are you high like what in the flying Frank obviously it's not real people come on this is it's just a modified iPhone 8 that's that's it this is not the iPhone 9 that's not the iPhone 9 or whatever it's

Gonna be called what about the iPhone 12 I was scrolling through and I saw this today this is a concept render that I strongly believe was made by the person is like a fun thing like look I made this this would be cool if it was iPhone huh right but I saw websites run with it being like wait if we've been wrong the whole time this is the iPhone 12 what whoa this is crazy I'm not gonna show you any of those articles not gonna give anybody any attention just look at this this is the render again it is not real however if we could just do a little thought

Exercise real quick so I looked at this right I was I saw it and I was like huh well that's disgusting little thicker forehead at the top supposedly for face ID but then a little notch at the bottom for touch ID now real quick touch ID is in fact coming back to iPhones that's a real thing but according to the reports it's coming to like the power button like touch ID will be integrated in the power button in like one I phone this year like a budget iPhone but if we could just consider the other one again this is not real it's just a concept but I just I saw this and I was like that's

Awful get away from me but then but then I was like hold up I think I want that let us know down in the comments section if this is if this is something you would consider I mean I know at first glance is kind of icky but to me it's icky in the same way that like your first son is that's kind of ugly and disappointing but like he's your son and you gotta love them anyway so here we are this kinda icky iPhone is the ugly son that I gotta love anyway I think I would buy it I think I'd give it a check is okay I would buy it that's what this is

Fine let me know in the comments below again last show of the week we might as well have some fun here right and that's it that's the episode that's the show hopefully you liked it you learned something if you did hit the like button if you hate my stupid face the dislike button that one works too that buttons for you if you're new here subscribe and stuff have a good weekend or not I don't care see on Monday
