Hey guys it's tech take a -- level in for Adam Housley today it's Thursday happy Friday ET is so this who -- talking about.
Right out the back the president present a bomb in April signed an executive order.
Which prohibits American companies from providing all manner of technological support for the Syrian and the Iranian government's this includes web hosting.
Even after this orders several Syrian government web sites are still being hosted by American companies plus there's this.
Next year 2013.
Yes we'll start making computers right here in America apple CEO Tim -- Is announcing this after a hiatus of that what it's almost twenty years good for him.
So we look who's here to talk about all of his Jeremy Kaplan -- theory of the science and technology editor at foxnews.com hey Jeremy good to see you thanks for me on the show.
So you know these companies will start with this whole what web hosting your lot of these companies are unaware that there actually hosting some of these Syrian government web -- That's the weird quirk of the whole thing because the -- the hosting situation works.
It's not just that there's a computer and somebody comes up -- as -- must open your computer there's often a lot of intermediary agents.
So one of these companies we host web sites for examples one of them and they were a number of these companies or found to be hosting these sites.
Somebody who come to them and say here's a site.
Which -- come to them from someone else they don't know exactly what's being hosted on their sites.
Very very quirky situation however recently when the when the Syrian government shut off the Internet in the country together all those -- of the fighting over there.
It was funny people -- Willis Syrian government web sites are still up how -- their sites be up when they get shut off the Internet.
That's why because -- over here in the US so once these companies as we just sit a lot of not realizing what they were doing but once they found out they they take immediate action.
Yet many of them were shocked to find that this is that you in the case feasible that we we don't wanna look at we're supporting this Syrian government.
Some of them said you know we don't care about politics one way the other other but this is patently illegal so we're gonna take it down.
Do all the ones that we spoke to said it's already been taken down -- in the process of taking these things down but it's kind of -- situation you know.
Are you held responsible -- you legally responsible if something if you don't know what's there and if the company's new contract and we didn't put it there was a third party that put it there.
What do you do yeah and plus it seems like -- complain that thing looks and if they found out that they were.
Doing this inadvertently doing this they're like we're out.
Click click whatever disconnect pull the plug it's done we're not doing that -- so.
Exactly think they responded the thing that I'm curious about yes I wonder -- the Syrian government was doing this intentionally.
Were they collecting their things and places they knew you were a little bit more reliable.
You know given that the Internet might not be as -- as reliable robust over there.
Yet you know that's the -- and point hard to -- we don't know but that said that's an interesting thought so let's talk about apple this is good news.
That the they're gonna put most pretty much all of manufacturing I'll be here in the US.
Well -- wouldn't go that far OK in fact what we learned what we learned very little Tim Cook has said publicly in a couple of interviews now we're going to start.
Making computers in the US now -- choice of words -- is very important.
Can -- manufacturing didn't see assembling didn't say which computers left a lot of this up in the air.
But any sort of thing like this I think is a fantastic step forwards as you mentioned before apple stopped manufacturing in the US twenty years ago when he years ago -- used in the computers in California.
It just became hard to do that.
So even though I know you're saying it's a matter of semantics we're not quite sure how much production we're talking about manufacturing being done here in the states.
But nonetheless -- -- making some sort of moves to -- to make it better here inside our borders.
That's a really good question and they did not say why and it's hard to tell why it seems like from a business perspective that wouldn't be the best move it's bound to cost more money.
And -- good brushed off some questions about whether the cost of Mac's gonna go up because of this he's -- what's more important is -- we have the capabilities can we do this.
We can bring the know how backed the US so so it was a good idea I don't know.
Sounds like there's some sort of pressure not -- -- staying where the Great Depression may be coming from but the whole idea of made in the US it's an -- it's -- is a US companies that he camp for everything.
Because it suddenly -- so here in California and to Cupertino but all the works really going tomorrow so as -- -- -- I personally think it's wonderful I think it's great that we can bring this to get back to the US.
It probably not gonna be although -- what is going to be like against me help me.
The Sam Adams beer company.
Something like 1% of their beer in Boston.
The Brooklyn brewery company and bring him microbrewery here in Brooklyn yes or -- live 1% of their Beers brewed in Brooklyn.
-- where -- splits -- that it is -- and where is it it was at a Brooklyn where is -- continue to go upstate New York it's it's is still in New -- gets -- -- budget like -- in Brooklyn it would that there is when look at cream -- type thing -- -- they do that to -- good anyway he would let everybody know that we can catch all of more details about -- which Jeremy was talking about on -- -- that companies -- -- article.
-- posted -- to go to foxnews.com.
And you get all the details very interesting stuff.
And it doesn't get on you for finding out what every candidate has always Jeremy and good for apple it's and I applaud this.
Very timid applause all around yet Jeremy Kaplan did you see things -- did rest of the day too good weekend.
All right it is five after the hour I think anyway -- -- -- back after a short break about talk about getting hooked up.
Welcome back of my own apple Adam -- is off this afternoon watching tech take right here foxnews.com -- so let's go right now how college.
-- -- those are seen as the bridge between pre Internet generations and those who will never ever ever.
Ever ever ever know world with -- -- Internet or cell phone.
Plus how does technology.
And model the way this generation views marriage relationships work.
Has -- upbringing had an impact on the way -- -- equality in our country good questions this has been answered and Jack Myers he is here hijacked.
Hi you guys hear that he's the author of hooked up -- up is the book here it is.
Hooked up a new generation surprising take on sex politics and saving the world.
So where do you want to start first of all how did you come to start to search studying the -- I was really studying the transformation between the pre in the post Internet and looking at the differences between those -- who.
Born before the Internet and those born after him what I found was this little bridge generation five years born nine 95.
Who have the sensibilities and sensitivities of the pre Internet age but our first window the prism through which we can see the future of Internet native.
So right so we've been broken down and full screen here who are the -- up in a generation as you sit there for between 19811985.
College graduating class and they by the way only comfort 20% of the total pulling us we'll get into the other room -- in a moment.
But let me start with Jason and asked how the -- their upbringing has impacted that we -- you.
Very well because they've grown up on line -- they have a completely it's almost like they're DNA is being built in a different way.
They don't understand the concept of having to encourage diversity in human rights because it's second nature to them it's a birth right.
They're they're measured by their creativity and their ideas not by there at the color of -- skin or their gender or their age or.
-- size in and therefore they're they're growing up with.
Far less restraints and new restrictions in -- -- boundary a sense of total equality they also don't understand.
Silos hierarchies they don't understand organizational chart so they're coming out of college into the workforce.
Not really understanding the concept of traditional organizations are very collaborative because they've been online work collaboration is the norm.
But I know you're very impressed with this group makes you mentioned something that's interesting -- that is because they are going into the workforce and think they're very Smart.
We -- coming into that workforce where there is still more structure depending on where you -- -- -- it.
A lot of them are getting some of the cooler -- jobs better he would hit cubicles and they can weird you know converse through to work.
Okay that's that I went very well -- -- they go into the little ourselves off.
There's a throw themselves on -- down on the couch and they say what's up dude yes absolutely know that that that there is a but there's a power is in place that they should be respective -- even aware of.
It I think that I think it's good I think that it's good that there without some boundaries but I also do believe that there.
Should be better understanding of respect that you just talked about when you throughout this next thing we're looking at the profile of the hooked up generation.
And ratings they're born between night when in 95 break there on Facebook.
Most of them play online bill or the console games -- and -- -- percent of -- were texting right they shop online pretty much that's all they didn't go everything they don't go to Africa more restaurants really -- so.
And one even hit.
And then they expect.
New technology where where we look at and say oh my god -- what's coming how we gonna manage -- all how we gonna deal with think they expected and they embrace it when it's there are so they're the first generation that's really.
Born into technology in the idea detective -- acceleration.
I was very fascinated because part of that the -- title here -- new generation surprising take on sixth.
Porn I read it at that -- -- but that court is.
-- been ubiquitous for most of their lives available it doesn't impress them what's most interest in his.
-- that for the next decade 60% of college graduates are going to be female.
The workforce is going to be heavily impacted by a female centric point of view.
Business almost every aspect of civilization is sitting in the US and and globally is going to be have you heavily influenced by women.
And and and women coming out of college and our study we found that really accepting of male immaturity if you with the -- if you -- and and there they consider themselves equal.
What I heard over and over again in our interviews with with young women is.
You know they wanna have fun they want to go on dates but the last thing they want is some immature guy dragging them down.
They really want they're focused on their careers of the first generation to grow up.
Without a belief that they're going to be more successful than their parents they know how how hard it's going to be.
But they're not motivated by money they're motivated by doing good by making contribution by being fulfilled for having my iPhone experience isn't.
Isn't that wonderful I you know I mentioned something you and which is what is how old you are without boundaries and and millennial.
In -- perhaps when they go into some of the more structured workplace atmosphere is.
That they might have to learn -- higher here respect however let me flip -- -- is now what is it that we can learn from the little else.
Actually the right question in fact -- founded an organization.
-- -- -- women in media mentoring initiative.
For women in the media entertainment.
Marketing and advertising careers and it's the whole idea is -- -- turning.
And it's that would they have as much to teach coming out of college and into the workforce as they have to learn and it's a balance so.
Meant to -- now is a two way dual process where.
Women with experience have as much so learn as well as to teach.
I think it's always it's always a give and take when you mentor someone let's take a look at this these guys are spending all kinds of time online doing everything online.
They're texting their on FaceBook and if -- need to update daily.
Beer you know they're blogging of course you Skype but who wants to make the phone -- -- regular phone CNET based their tanks -- -- You know gateway beaten detects and only 57% of them on Twitter.
But again so they're able to multitask everything is about technology everything is not having two -- -- devices going at one time.
We asked them how much time is spent on different activities -- -- came out to about 36 hours a day 36 hours a day.
So 36 hour of the day.
We've multitasking so.
Oh let me see less mention they're 24 hours in the day -- -- -- somehow managing to -- 36 hours of activity.
In two to visit our our day you know -- because if you.
Listen texting is quicker you know face looking up a database but they're like OK this wish she's doing I think that got it and so it's his fat guy like -- You see these you walk on a college campus and you see kids walking in groups and -- talking in the looking down in their texting idea and sometimes say what -- -- -- -- -- in their texting each -- though having congress I.
I -- within conversely I don't.
I know specially girls -- The -- trying to say something funny but if things are under a zombie and girls are Smart.
-- valuable to manage you know and -- we end there -- like that you have finally come -- the best -- -- -- higher research and study that you have -- -- I do appreciate -- it's definitely feminist -- Well I'd like that.
We've been having here you're OK with me there's the -- hooked up it's by Jack Myers a new generation surprising take on sex politics.
And saving the world thinks let's -- really interesting -- have you enjoyed it we'll come back if it.

Yet Peter Griffin reports of some cool I've renovations that were made to the city's first casino right -- -- That's right on the -- front of the golden gate hotel and casino I was the first one built in Las Vegas way back in 1906.
They just finished up some renovations for the first time in fifty years and he doesn't look too bad.
Los Vegas is first don't sell just gotten extremely go.
The golden gate is -- -- an -- The key Las Vegas hotel there's always represented -- -- Las Vegas beer after opening its doors in 1906.
