We are just hours away from tomorrow's Apple event and it is not what you think it is what daily tech news in a way that doesn't suck of course you do that subscribe button and turn on notifications so you don't miss the next episode yo what's going on guys welcome back to front page tech of course show that gives you all this tech news from one geek that is me to another that is you happy Sunday I know you never get a Sunday episode of front page tech but obviously tomorrow is the Apple event so today puppet a couple things Bryan the editor from page tech just got married just the look at him look at the loans

Go ahead and leave your love and your congratulations down in the comments section below I'm sure Bryan will read that but that leads me into my second thing more of a warning for the rest of this week Bryan is on his honeymoon in California which means this week all this week I am editing the show I know I'm as scared as you are so first up story numero uno yes the apple stream is tomorrow technically but they've already started streaming yep they've already started publicly streaming just an empty Steve Jobs

Theater if you tuned in if you look at it there's like five different camera angles sifting through and every so often they raise the curtain okay now I hate to burst your bubble but what we're looking at here most likely is just pre-recorded video this ain't live come on now but either way what should we expect tomorrow we've been hearing rumblings that Apple's getting ready to take on Netflix that's what everyone is anticipating Apple's own streaming service to take on Netflix Hulu that sort of thing that is not the case not what's

Happening so according to a report from recode we're not actually about to see some sort of serious competitor to Netflix or Hulu help it's actually much more boring than that and listen it's not like down the road we won't see a streaming service like Netflix or like Hulu from Apple but for now at least what we should expect instead of at 4:00 tomorrow is just services apparently Apple just gonna help other people sell their streaming video subscriptions and then they'll take a cut of the transaction like the app store put just more video streaming and

At least for now Apple's original shows and movies that they've been working on are also going to be a part of this service but don't get this confused here Apple's own content is not the core product here it's just a cool bonus I guess and there's also a chance that we'll see that new gaming service that we've been hearing about coming from Apple now real quick this isn't like Google stadia it's not cloud gaming nothing like that according to a report from Bloomberg apples version of this would be more like Spotify but for games basically how this

Would work I guess is Apple would collect the reoccurring revenue from the gaming bundle and then split it among participating game developers based on how much time users are actually spending playing those respective games so reports are saying that we could hear about this tomorrow as well but personally I think it would be a much better idea to save this for WWDC listen what we're seeing here what we're about to see tomorrow will be a major change for the direction the future of Apple their heavy heavy heavy focus on services more so than hardware and it

Kind of makes me sad it kind of makes me sad but I've been saying on this show for a while that because of declining smartphone sales overall the iPhone can't be Apple's bread-and-butter forever so they need to stop focusing so much on selling iPhones to people and start focusing more on selling things selling services to people that already have the iPhone so with the announcements tomorrow the new streaming service and all that stuff let me just make a small note here that it's kind of disappointing because if you really think about it Apple has been selling

Video subscription services and taking a cut of that transaction that's what they do with pretty much everything not even just video subscription services but subscription services period in the App Store it's just what they do that's what they do so what do you guys think I'm kind of disappointed let me know in the comments section below is this a game changer or like Nan this is definitely going to change Apple in the future direction of Apple but I don't know about a game-changer all right so speaking of gaming services especially after last week's

Announcement of Google's cloud gaming service Google stadia what is one company that you would never want to ever touch cloud streaming of games Walmart that's right I guess Walmart is also looking into launching their own gaming service their own cloud gaming service so according to multiple sources familiar with Walmart's plans who wish to remain anonymous Walmart is at least exploring the possibilities of launching their own cloud gaming service thing I know you're probably like but for why I got no freaking idea but Walmart could do it

Because money they have so much money they could do whatever they want and apparently that might include cloud gaming hah hell but I'm definitely confused because Walmart also had plans of launching their own video streaming service definitely one to compete with Netflix but then they pulled that idea that completely shoved that idea decided not to do it and they decided that like back in January so Wow they'll Frank would you do this Walmart just listen do us all a favor and don't listen I know you've been sitting on it
