-- -- -- Good morning -- -- from the West -- 1 o'clock -- -- of course we know -- our thoughts and prayers -- with everybody not only in Boston but also.
What's going on in west Texas and we'll keep you updated of course on those two story throughout the this half hour but of course we're -- technology and how it fits in with the news cycle.
And actually there may be no pertinent time no more heard -- time to talk about that then today and how this is helping with the Boston investigation we have a number of different guest today.
-- we also course will be talking about technology and some of the gadgets you can find it'll be later on this half hour you can -- -- On foxnews.com right here on the chat but he also can weigh in on Twitter on FaceBook and will be monitoring those.
All throughout the half hour program -- wanna start off right away with what's going on -- -- -- continued search for.
Those responsible for the bombs that.
Killed three and maimed so many others and we do know that the investigation is progressing and they have some very promising leads.
-- and one -- -- being told this morning this is all working is with social media and also with technology from the street.
-- ever gonna go with our first -- right after the Spokane Washington.
-- Larry -- a forensic video expert he's here to -- it was about how social media is being used in gathering evidence and helping.
Oh with this investigation Larry thank you up for joining us forensic video solutions dot com is your website.
We do appreciate you -- -- joining us this morning.
I guess my first question do it very simply put.
What is being done how are they using social media we've heard some reports about how it's being done -- what have you heard and how the -- being handled.
It in regards to the ongoing investigation by the FBI and all the local law enforcement agencies as well.
Well there's and a group -- the social media missed it.
Action is or other information dissemination.
Really not -- -- -- Six days.
We are having a little bit technical difficulty with.
With Larry -- a microphone or work on that.
In the meantime -- its duty to update of what's being done right now -- me what we're hearing.
A while -- working on his on his audio -- could run -- go to -- come -- -- we'll have a Larry.
Before we go to break -- you know we've heard this morning and that is this the FBI says there has been I was significant social media.
Work uses -- -- say a round of the time.
Of the bomb blast -- taken -- -- the ability for them to basically highlight that go through some of this -- that an investigation -- as evidence is part of the investigation.
And they have been able to identify what they believe are some significant leads by using this.
You also -- have all the pictures and video that we do know police officers were at the airport trying to contact people as they left.
Boston do you look at their to look at herself Baltimore time to look at the cameras -- more time.
And for them to be able to possibly pass along that information because again the more video you have and the more information you have the better the investigation goes we have Larry back now get from Spokane -- -- -- -- Sorry -- that course again we lost a microphone.
About what basically can be done if they mentioned there have been reports this morning and they've been able to isolate.
Some of the social media usage directly after the bombing and right before they've been able to identify what they believe are some leads -- -- Well social media is is.
Used by various.
Law enforcement -- -- government generally is information dissemination when we start talking about evidence collection and analysis.
It's been -- from the very get go of course for collecting.
Evidence for all types of crimes almost every crime.
-- committed has that digital components.
In and and subsequently.
Social media can be used as leverage to by law enforcement -- you.
Obtain more information about an individual or group who sharing information regularly on the Internet.
In these particular situations.
The government has an opportunity.
To look at better solutions utilizing social media for the collection.
Publicly submitted evidence and and that it's big opportunity that I think the federal government is certainly looking obviously there's tremendous not a cost involved with implementing.
Technology at the skill that it would need to be implemented -- -- -- to local agencies.
But there -- a number of ways it's being used the unions today.
Or or hearing that -- there.
Was some sort of evidence they believe found.
By using social media directly afterwards I mean I don't know that was somebody posting to.
You know social media website or whatever I ask two questions the first one -- reported to that is how can they -- these cell phones and we've been told obviously yourself on the track but.
They can -- they can track at that time it was actually used to be the theory is that the cell phone.
Set off these bombs -- that's one of the theories out there so -- -- they'll literally track it down to this the second that that bomb blast went off and then.
That identify those numbers being used at that point.
Well there's a number of variables involved but there's also a number of technology that can be used to track cell -- -- lives and track activities which towers they -- off from things of that nature after the fact.
It's just a matter of how long -- service providers maintaining.
Those records and things of that nature and it -- Throughout the throughout the industry.
But but there are technologies -- commercially available and technologies.
That you've probably read about what is -- -- -- device it's been used the federal level.
44 impersonating in -- impersonating a cell site and -- -- held cellphones in the local area to believing it they'll fight.
And therefore the traffic is and -- routed through through it.
Those technologies that existed and been utilized for a number of years well over a decade.
And -- likely the mid ninety's.
Now all squandered the social media aspect because only -- people be posting a line who had nothing to do this of course.
There's a good possibility that person responsible could have been using social media as well.
But going back to social media we know that the law enforcement gone to the airports.
Our daughter ports of entry and and tried to ask people if they can see their cell -- that they can see the video on the cameras and pictures and -- try to compile all the evidence.
I assume people are also surfing the web.
Looking at social media web sites.
That potentially -- pictures and video also from.
Prior to and also just after even during the actual events themselves.
What we have is substantial change in in the collection of this type of evidence just within the last ten years if you can imagine.
So immediately after the event we've got you know thousands and thousands the general public.
That that are in possession of evidence.
Pertaining to you to an incident.
How do we get that evidence in two days there's not a unified.
Solution for a law enforcement collect that evidence other than to to -- ask the public.
Uploaded to try and put in place systems.
To allow the public to upload that information.
It was more reactive.
Approached -- -- that isn't to say that the federal government hasn't thought about.
Implementing solutions to improve that certainly I know dark.
-- -- -- And RB a couple years ago looking to try and find a vendor to help them development solution.
For these type of situation.
Right on the -- question where do we had one viewer the waiting here on FaceBook -- half asking if there's been an arrest and get.
There has not been an arrest a boat -- we've been told there had been some some significant leads that have come.
And much it has come from using video cameras.
And of course technology that was available at the time it's happened.
I the last question for you is it's obvious that forensics now.
Very much includes social media and in some respects social media could be the key now -- -- you so much video so -- some particular being posted so instantaneously.
Yeah I absolutely.
In in this particular event you know again immediately the public was looking for a way to participate.
And assists which is absolutely required in these types of -- the incident.
I'm in -- immediate way that they know how to share what they have recorded to their own to other devices.
Through social media.
And and -- law enforcement.
You can imagine.
Is not only.
Overwhelmed but they're they're dealing with -- collection of all of that evidence through some of those.
When shared generally.
Through social media.
We're looking at degradation of -- -- certainly not be the best practice for submitting evidence or or painting the other and certainly they found something of interest.
They want to get to the regional recording they wanna get to the original source of that evidence because it provides the best quality.
All right Larry -- a forensic video expert.
Joining us for Spokane Washington is what says forensic video solutions dot com we do appreciate you coming on.
We will absolutely have you back on again talking about this is this investigation goes for -- I'm sure.
As we have other investigations and and stories such as this you can see right -- -- video solutions that is -- website they Cingular for joining us all stay in touch.
Thank you so much revenue.
The problem all right -- gears just a bit from the investigation -- -- we're gonna head to New York in and Dennis Neil from Fox Business Network talking about how.
Amazon is dialing in the television and you know there's so many different -- Outlets now getting into TV.
Not only in two TV itself but just programming for example stars and and DirecTV and all that the networks doing it but Amazon.
Getting a television Dennis is here to judge join us live tells about this significant maneuver and how -- business is getting -- -- TV game.
And the money game thanks for joining us.
Hello Adam -- you know and Amazon revolutionized retailing.
Revolutionize the book benefits and now maybe wants to revolutionized television so it's got fourteen original pilots for original shows you know.
Netflix the way it made its business first was by taking shows that Hollywood makes and -- good at that and bring him on line.
But then that -- moved into original programming and -- quite a bit and now Amazon is borrowing a page from Netflix and doing this with fourteen new pilots.
And they show an online and Amazon and then they're gonna let them.
Crowd sourcing -- -- viewers vote on what once they wanna -- -- taken forward if they take the pilot and turn into a series.
You can only see the series -- -- member of Amazon prime a prepaid.
-- nine dollars a year you get three or two day shipping on your products.
But Amazon's also offering free movies and TV shows and they're trying to do this original pilot thing to build more -- to get more people.
To join Amazon prime.
There's some key points -- you got a question about the strategy.
Yes I mean it's it's anything to last night we.
I was told my wife and we actually watched one of the star series for the first time -- and there's so much out there I think that's the big question a lot of people having -- television world.
He is how much is too much to me and other going to be too many series frustrating to gather in -- and find time to watch -- mean.
I was also thinking but the technology the technology -- advanced so much that you could make Florence for example won the series we're watching look like you were in the time amenities so.
If this same type -- thing is obviously being done now is the technology it's more affordable.
Is Amazon had to put an -- numbers out there how many people they think they're gonna be able to garner -- -- and again I don't think buzz whatsoever all about some of the.
-- actions they haven't the bigger question for me.
He is the idea of a company moving so far beyond its core competency yet.
This is Netflix and Amazon both get a little big for their -- here and and thinking hey you know what Hollywood or get up.
Compete with -- and we'll do just as well as you do at designing original shows even though that's not any expertise we've ever had now.
In Netflix is cases they're gambling a hundred million dollar they did house of cards a very critically praised series fifteen episodes.
Original series one of the first times that Netflix had ever done that.
But you know what.
They posted it it ran the dvd release came up from Sony because that -- sold off -- dvd rights what was that all four.
And -- for the network business to tell is what to follow a long time.
You're lucky if one of every ten new shows takes hole -- and any kind of laughing hit.
And so I don't know why and that -- 33 million paying subscribers.
Amazon prime has may be at most.
Ten million so it's a -- -- by comparison.
Would you really go sign up for Amazon prime because they have these new pilot you've heard about or because Amazon bought and paid for exclusive online rights to the second season of Downton -- the very.
Crazy much popular British show so bad -- what's gonna bring it Amazon prime Downton Abbey.
Not some new show beta is starring Ed Begley junior about startups in Silicon Valley from guys we've never heard -- I just I wish them well I hope they do great -- it.
But I really feel like Amazon isn't as best at reselling stuff made by others that is what the company is about.
The company is no Hollywood mogul and Netflix and -- both I kind of wonder why they would want to compete.
With the suppliers of the contents that they then.
-- -- -- You get a steal it but does now we're resisting some of our viewers are weighing in how much they love -- house of cards that's a great point.
And also -- the sheer number talking about here talking about one or two shows they're producing to go along with the shows they purchased but fourteen matches.
To me it is unheard that's -- you are following this of and if a food fight strategy you -- -- little -- how that.
Beginning at the -- one mistake they make money pay law we'll stay attached dishonest on this this is realistic we're seeing so many different companies get into this.
Are trying to make a buck and also trying to get some some buzz with their shows as did house of cards.
Are gonna steal from the fox business network of course you can follow him on FBM.
As well as online appreciate joining us from new York and -- level being talked about this but thank you Adams.
It is up fourteen past the hour right are two great guests so far of course the person talking about technology and how it's helping with the Boston.
Our investigation as well as that is still talking about Amazon getting into the television race we have more after the break coming back and also look into the half hour we have our gadgets will be able talking about or affordable yet it's.
You can find now that you may have seen anywhere online or on your computer and for that matter we also have a a colossal surprising there as well stick with us we're back in about two minutes.
Welcome back it is sixteen past the hour to sixteen of course here on the West Coast won sixty out east we -- go to San Diego for Nathan.
A unique situation it really plays into our last guest perfectly we with the FBI and of course we had in the still talking about.
How Amazon's getting -- television of course -- -- been around for a lot longer than Amazon the TV world that is.
And they've got to producing with their release of a game as well as a show at the same time -- that show.
Which came out defiance which came out -- on Monday was their largest.
Premier since 2006.
So appreciate Nathan come on talk about the show the premier oh what a big -- it was for the scifi network and also how plays in the video game that they can pay for joining us in San Diego.
Thanks for having out of but -- -- it's -- pretty great because of the show got craters were reviewing and the game of course lost to the for the -- so.
It's been really great -- and pretty exciting to see how insulting tying together.
Because I mean there's there's been five years in the making so it's it's it was a big moment both the launch of the game and of course throughout the show.
How unique is this Nathan how -- is to launch a game -- a show.
At the same time I'm sure -- and following that question no one else how nervous were you know when you put five years and -- these two totally separate entities but yet they're connected.
Bomb to ensure that both of them went off well which they did.
Well yeah I mean -- I think the main -- and of course was it was us learning.
To have a title -- get into the game development ultimate TV show and and and for the future people how to make it didn't do development and that's kind of what the first struggles there are so it's I -- it yes it was a long road but I think that's.
With a lot of preparation amount seeing that you.
Real interaction between the -- is -- you have.
-- just crossing between the game in the show and you also have.
World events which materialize both in the -- and show the same time.
But yet it's been a huge launch Steve we gone through -- issues with of course with the game in terms of of the launching.
But that's simply because we're dealing with success problems we should have a lot of people that are coming up playing.
Tell us how it is -- -- viewers can no politics card the video game but in the show and and it can have a say in how the show develops tell us how that happens how.
Had a interactivity is not only help for the scifi channel on -- for your entity but also how it actually works.
When it comes of the nuts and bolts.
We have a limitation that was kind of a little bit like the learning experience for went through in terms of finding out.
What we could actually pull off here for for the first season so what you see is more that we we have storytelling into different ways we have.
The television show which just as there's -- more.
Character drama you have but the game itself which Morissette and San Francisco.
We have more the wild west -- on the frontier so we have a lot of freedom in terms of storytelling and also.
Really lurching towards the different mediums -- the game.
As a first person shooter but they're pretty sure there it's it's it's it's -- the type.
-- a different type of story.
So what we were -- consulting there is is but larger world story and -- -- value crossover litre between those two locations.
And those two mediums but so what -- -- they have respect you have characters starting for example in the game.
And they then transition over to the show and start.
Like -- -- the story over there.
But you also have who are true and -- you have.
The training for example.
-- Coming out.
So it in the in this in indoor itself.
And that changes the game world as well at the same time so both that you you have the stories intertwined but you also have.
The effect of the world itself you'll see.
A certain number of circumstances where you have.
He didn't look like.
Getting a mention in the show as well also.
We are taking the first steps here but -- say that cross currents.
Describe it pretty well in terms so that you -- are crossing over the story between the two.
To -- shuffle of game and so.
Obviously there's -- first of its kind.
Especially on a large scale like this.
Bob was there -- worry that you might lose some people obviously the hardcore gamers people made more.
Involved in this kind of technology would be interested.
But was there or the more casual viewers wouldn't wouldn't take -- obviously you guys did great so that may not be the case but was there to kind of worry there.
How you take that into account but -- during the casual viewer would still be interest and still be able to follow along.
Yes so from the beginning and I mean yesterday that that is pretty unique because it's never been done on this scale before.
I mean both pockets are huge we have -- -- people developing the game and for side -- Production of the ridiculous as is the biggest the -- states so.
Of this scale also meant that that you don't have to watch the show to play the game and you don't have to play the game to watch the show.
So what you have there is that it's it becomes an -- experienced due to do both.
That means that you can be casually watching the show and you don't have to be heavily involved or even thinking about the game to enjoy the show.
And that's kind of like a conscious decisions that were making is that.
That they aren't inherently -- reliant upon each other.
And you can experience -- of the world's without having.
-- to -- around to get the context of what's happening around you so.
-- It's it's it's a mixture between.
We have a common audience we also have like is that there's a more casual audience.
They can fully.
Enjoy the show without ever having to play the game and people that that don't.
Like -- can still play the game and have a good time.
So it's it's it's from the beginning and and and that's kind of also why we decided to do.
-- work with the new concept with that this defined world is that we were with before.
C a universe which could be applied to both mediums.
But also be CPA and ended.
Thabeet get to tell -- stores without being being directly.
Reliant on each other and therefore I mean everything that happened socialistic type test so there.
Well -- -- -- go from here.
Have you had other companies contact you are there other developments tonight ideas and development what's the next step for you guys.
Obviously -- did you did during this successes as huge.
Yeah I mean if there's two things there of course and have our focus is based entirely on defiance something that through because.
Fashion modeling game we have five eligible content -- Throughout the year before -- before that forcing them to.
We have entire development team working on.
Creating a -- so I mean there's there's a lot of things just developing that it plans further actually modeling game because that's essentially what the -- is that.
You know a lot of -- have paid content that comes throughout the year.
So the game is maintained an -- was precious this is a long term the question sort of speak.
Interest from other companies yeah I mean I think -- a lot of them -- Are still on the offense in terms of what they want to do they are looking towards us and seeing how it goes with the entire concept -- they is that -- -- But.
I think I think that's.
More people will be willing to go into transmit.
The French media in general I mean I it's -- is -- -- there's other ways of doing them that better than them online entertainment television show of course.
So I I expect more to happen there.
That being said.
I think that's even the opportunities that we have with the -- knowledge that we recently just beginning.
Witten when you have the end of the season -- -- it was a show essentially the power goes back to the gamers in terms of wealth driving restore life.
Two -- -- two what happens in between -- one assistant to.
They in the game will be able to affect what actually happens in -- two on the large scale where so yet and we recently just beginning so at the -- there's none of the group but quite a.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yet exciting content that's for sure and it directors and executive producer of defiance the game.
-- dot com is the web -- in fact we have a deluge they right now that's the the game and the show on the -- -- network -- doing very well their largest they're their best.
Season premiere and since 2006.
So fantastic development for you guys and gusting to about how your inner weaving -- -- and bringing viewers into the whole concept of how the show's gonna go we will look.
Keep an eye out for that and we appreciate your time.
-- -- -- -- All right.
So from San Diego to Spokane Washington to New York to hear a loss and had I guess from all over the country take a quick break we come back.
We'll do our gadget segment we do each each week that a couple people that a chimed in asking us to show more of some of the things they can use to monitor their -- we'll talk about that.
And -- get critical concept that you solar energy that might help you the next time you go out for camping trip.
We'll -- -- that as well stay with us.
Welcome back twice haven't passed the hour -- 47 here -- Los Angeles and great -- so far you can find of course the links to these interviews that we had.
Our online at foxnews.com.
-- lived there for awhile the first guest of course talking about how technology being used social media is being used to track down the Boston bombers.
-- -- most talked about how Amazon -- a television.
As well as the TV shows last game defiance that was from San Diego.
I now we have time for a get a -- my wife is watching and homes and a couple of gadgets here I'm sure she'll be happy to to see about.
Then I'll bring home at some point to try out even more so than here in the office the first -- wanna get too is the gold zero power.
A cool zero power.
It basically there's a number of different once you get final line -- -- -- the looks on each over there goals zero dot com.
On this happens to be the -- And to serve a fifty it's called this the package that we had your chance to test test -- you can see here's the solar panels it's very small effect pulls up nice and stand.
Even has the the power cable in the back and see -- -- is open a new backpack very nicely.
Been very impressed by -- every interest charges -- Smart phone seven times you see here's the unit also is a -- can zoom in on it.
Has the big connections in the back -- charge a cell phone seven times the assault camera three time the tablet twice.
Duffy is a laptop -- -- dukes in the life of your laptop like -- more hours.
Very impressive what I that was nice about with a small are you put this thing -- in your backpack when you go out for a hiker you're someplace out camping this summer.
And you're able to power your stuff and as we know that has become quite tedious for many of us -- get on the field.
The next thing is once -- -- is all over the places from RCA to USB -- -- charger.
How do yours you're seeing what's great about this is -- has a three prongs in the back it was -- your normal outlet.
It makes it -- And outlets still that you had a two USB chargers as well this from again from RCA filling 1999 anything to so affordable and I can tell you and you all know home while the Smartphones and tablets everything.
A USB charger is invaluable as well I get RCA the next thing -- -- artists and Tiki was show this last week.
-- a chance to play with -- some more.
Are basically this one I have got the iPhone 5 adapter for it but this connects right to the bottom of your phone -- 119 dollars -- and asking us some of the health things you can do.
You put your finger right over the top and pulls in the specs I have -- -- to give me 12 here.
It allows them onto your hearts on there's there's there's like three or four major.
Things you can do with it -- I was impressed by the ability to put your finger -- the top.
Makes -- your out of a light.
And that is -- that goes along with it on the -- appears well and it it monitors your heart rate and it's it's pretty darn accurate to protect against couple other things of a surprise.
But how well it did now won't work here because the studio lights -- so bright -- to put under the table it would actually tell me in my heart rate.
Amongst a number of the things one of the many health devices out there what -- like what this is it's small it's light and again.
It was very accurate what would -- we can tell so far.
At a -- thing we have four is our golf club and -- don't know.
There it is that'd be edited to golf cents a quarterback in the box -- that's a golf club to go in the back your hand.
We have a one earlier a couple weeks ago the connect your golf club the monitors your swing this does the same thing.
It's pretty accurate it's light it's a wearable has a 3-D motion and has the ability -- -- to computer in your Smartphone.
Up I was impressed with the Billy -- on your hand.
On for me it felt more comfortable than having it the one on your club now I have a friend -- -- the club one it likes it better.
Bomb but I gotta tell you for someone who's trying to improve their golf game.
On the golf since a one of those things out there right now there's a number technologies this one's been pretty impressive again on its goes round of golf glove on the back your hand.

So that's -- -- out -- this week we have the goal zero power.
We have the the plug from -- CA where the Tiki health monitor TI in KE.
And then of course the golf sense but because of the back of your golf club all -- -- white all -- -- all the -- -- -- -- right now on the -- and for that -- -- -- -- on the market.
So that's our show for today.
As you can -- -- -- packed a lot of stuff in here and a half hour you can continue to weigh in here online you can also weigh in out throughout the week on Twitter and FaceBook.
Tell us what you want to show we obviously people the ones he's -- golf stuff we've -- that form the last couple weeks so probably that's just some golf stuff for a few weeks but.
