We talk everything technology how it relates to news in your life -- -- very -- and if you have any questions at all feel free to bring him into -- any kind of depth that you want.
In regarding our topic it is on FaceBook of course on Twitter right here on the chat on fox news live dot com.
And the link of course you know it is lined -- foxnews.com.
We have some great guests today we have Allison -- talking about some outstanding technology for military we have -- -- -- from -- -- go to the second we also the guest here live in studio.
And then at the -- our show we have some of our gadgets will be able to show you highlight in -- back to the couple that are gonna stand out that you have not seen before I guarantee.
And the not gonna break your pocketbook -- -- one it's being released.
Just today you'll be the first person in the world to see alive here on -- -- life.
All right so with that we're gonna go right to New York with our perks first guest Eric ever bomb is joining us and he -- -- Sosa popped.
Associate publisher of social media -- and you find him ads really ever bomb.
Also his own PR website which was open -- -- Eric thanks for joining us really -- thanks so much for having me it was great to be here.
You know I know we're gonna talk what the news flow and social media and it may be no better time to talk about that in the last week we had of course a blast in Texas that.
They killed a number of our first responders and people that were nearby but of course we had the the two bombings on the took place in Boston last week and so much of social media took part in that.
Some to the detriment unfortunately of the story but a lot of it to the advancement of the story to help.
Identify the suspects outlets talk about that -- just talk about the news flow on social media well here's.
Thing about the news -- if you think back -- this is when I realized.
That there was going to be a of a marriage of social media and real news of you know you know journalists who -- they are who want real journalists and real journalist.
You know people that write for the New York Times and people who are bloggers.
When captain Sully landed that plane in the Hudson.
And the very first photo of all the people on the wing came from Twitter long before it hit it it was on any network I -- It social media is not gonna play a role in the way to information is disseminated it and -- in the news flow.
I think that it's kind of the wild wild west in the news now and we're gonna have to.
We're gonna have to figure out how how to get accurate information because there's an awful lot of misinformation that's spread.
In the -- everybody's rush to get the information out fast as they possibly can.
-- remind viewers to you can weigh in on Twitter on FaceBook right here on our chat line -- while monitoring a mall and so our folks in New York so feel free to ask any questions -- -- -- for that matter.
You you mentioned about some of the flow it and how it's really relating to social media I guess what my question is how -- stories being told because.
You know obviously got people that are.
Going to have their own book -- to be political or own agenda of any type for that matter.
Obvious people there really are trying to tell stories that maybe don't have a background and happening yet people that are very -- -- what they do so.
How are these stories being told when using social media well.
I mean when you social media is indicative by the way in Boston the very first photo which.
Was on Twitter with it but in in under sixty seconds that's the first place we got a visual of what was going on -- on Twitter.
Eight the which immediately feeds into broadcast.
You know you have it 24/7.
Many of them.
Just like here you know networks were covering things all day long.
And then eight and -- and they look at social media look at FaceBook they look at Twitter they look at a variety of places.
To see you know what information they can -- but.
Sometimes they also report based on things that they re I mean there was it.
A poor kid at Brown University his name came out in Boston who had absolutely nothing.
To do with anything you can't leave his room now.
Because a lot of people reported and a lot of people have since you know apologize for reporting it but they -- And and this doesn't happen just because of social media I mean it it it's always happened in the news anyway.
I mean the news happened so quickly what I would suggest the people think.
I mean I'm a news junkie in my office they have twelve different screens -- I watch everything on the Internet and on you know in the real world.
You know television what I would suggest to people is when there's a big bad breaking event turn off TV a turn off your Smartphone.
It'd turn off your Twitter feed -- take a walk.
-- -- -- as the next day.
And you'll have at it it as -- Accurate of a reflection on what happened the day before as your friends who are glued to 24/7 news cycles.
Course summer I disagree with you there -- say turn on and monitor and understand.
You know -- to follow who not to follow at the same time.
Do some research and -- you know would be see somebody report something.
Go on and look -- anybody else reputable going with that.
And if not keep -- on the side -- may be something that may be coming on the pipeline that eventually does does happen you mentioned some of the pictures that were posted that weren't even the right people -- one of them ended up on the front page of the New York Post to me.
That happened you had CNN news reports stuff.
And a lot of it does come from social mean of course that didn't just snowballed a before I ask my next -- -- do wanna get a couple of shout outs as you know as an online shows we will not people like me watching from all over.
But people from Asia last week they were talking about today when it Shaun -- Taylor is watching from Trinidad and Tobago.
And we have Ron Reagan Alex is -- say is she's from Jersey -- -- -- clothes are close to home watching his Wellesley appreciate them tuning in.
A lot of this information -- that's the other issue that -- you mentioned maybe -- Check out the next day and I say would know watch those speeds right now but be careful of misinformation and understand.
The people are gonna throw things other than -- truth that's what you have to do your research and know who your follow -- You had a problem as it -- commented John -- I'm not gonna take my own advice I'm going to be glued to.
You know a dozen different news sources and they will tell me different -- when a reputable news station reports something.
-- -- for May I look at that and say.
-- I take it with a grain of salt until it's confirmed.
You know what.
I was up in in Newtown.
I sat on a desk for an for a network for a day.
And I saw all the way to police handled the information there and a police lieutenant -- what -- -- who -- -- press conference every other -- and then every other day.
Said basically look if it doesn't come from me it's not fact.
You're asking a lot of questions about a lot of misinformation.
We will tell you what we factually now and that's all we will -- Mean.
That that's somebody you can trust and that's the sourcing and trust other than that then that I think there's a lot of rumors of fly around.
And a lot of people who believe those rumors and if you look at the number of -- -- for instance in Boston.
The number the amount of things that were -- we -- that was -- information was staggering.
Completely and and -- -- -- Boston there's been a lot of because -- political stories during the election season it was a mess we talked about it here.
On Fox News about -- -- -- live -- -- -- people were just tuning out because there was so much stuff being print online.
Whether it be on your FaceBook or Twitter or whatever you happen to be watching interest.
On -- -- a lot of misinformation people of course had political agendas.
You know any I think actually appoint one of rampant that have been for a last question your lower Moran is watching us.
-- she says I read this I put on a -- one points and we're alive about the show as you put I read this as we are alive and -- thought well that's good.
I guess the point is there that even when you have -- you have to to small little line.
A lot times you're looking you'll read it and because there's just so a quick blur basically you might miss construe what's been type -- PG.
Direction well you know what as easily as anybody could misconstrue.
What you are -- -- saying right now and then somebody out there probably is.
When you have as such a small number of characters.
And -- can tell him you know have a perspective so briefly -- there's a lot of room for -- and that.
All right -- ever mom from New York you can follow on.
Are really Albert Basel one Al RE ALY have a bomb it's on Twitter of course the associate publisher at social media -- appreciate you coming on great information.
And use her money people that even if you aren't in news junkie it's okay to follow those those speeds that make Syrian before you hit the re tweet but -- a little bit of research and understand.
Whether -- breaking news or whether it's political or whatever it is so make sure that you might yet ensure that it's something that's true before it is automatically assume that somebody saying something that's that -- true.
That's for sure Eric thanks for joining us thank you so much for happening.
When we come back we have guests are not only in New York talking about the new technology that the military -- using and how you can get involved also right here in studio in Los Angeles and of course.
We have our gadgets as well one that is gonna surprise you haven't seen anyone else in the world.
Thank you get an idea what -- might be -- on this table right now you can send your -- art you can chat right here on line and see if you get right.
All right thanks for joining us and -- back here in about two minutes.
Welcome back thirteen past the hour 1013 of course here in the West Coast I want to clarify because -- last -- we have a common about it when you're with social media.
How the news -- and how people can get misinformation perfect example is.
I his Twitter handle I thought was really ever bomb.
Because I read it fast and small for how -- paper and a perfect example is its real yeah ever bombs so.
RE AL and in last name of course is why a VE RBA -- women -- up there on the screen so it tells you of course.
Who goes back to -- point which is.
You know you with with social media what Twitter with FaceBook somebody things are so quick and so small that you really make sure.
It's a close look at it and that is the perfect example -- caused by me.
Us that clarifications out there.
We got to go back to New York where we have Allison -- of course you know she's a defense special for foxnews.com some great comments in recent weeks talked about some of the -- combat ships and everything.
What's so cool about this is how the next you can be and people are getting involved in developing the next amphibious assault vehicle we know.
From the shift going now from the other heirs of the world to the Pacific.
That's really gonna come in handy in -- so -- -- ways it can be used.
Allison joins us live she has some pictures of the concept vehicles and we also know -- -- have an article up soon out of -- but up soon on foxnews.com.
So Alison thanks for joining us and tells about this this contest -- this.
I say event how people got involved.
It's different setting item and could -- -- all those American I innovators they've already done it they've really cracked it this is a three part and that's.
Held by dark -- which is sort of that.
The -- described as the mad scientists.
They are really more -- guy out of the box thinkers.
And they had a point to create they want to help the Marine Corps because the last say this isn't about forty years they've been using the same forty years plus.
They've been using this scene insidious combat -- so this is.
Kind of how the storm the shore that's kind of how people might understand it how you get from ship to shore for the Marines.
So it there's been a lot of complaints that it's been difficult to maintain its getting increasingly difficult to operate they have an upgrading it but.
Who doesn't want to armories to be as safe as possible and be given the best advantage in superiority that we can give them.
When the you know in the event that we have teacher.
As you've suggested events -- -- in the Pacific.
So this event is a three part solution to a problem -- Marine -- spent.
Three billion dollars plus on this -- -- -- -- not come up with a -- girl that works replace -- three million dollars.
Super one million dollars a team of three guys just collaborated from three different states it -- Texas California and Ohio also go to those states.
They came together in this kind of virtual for urged that DARPA has created to -- -- -- people from all around the country.
To participate in this challenge out so they -- 19 dollars this week very exciting but there's still two more opportunities for any and innovators that are out there.
Who have loved -- need to help our military and create designed their very own military vehicle for the.
-- you mentioned the three states California Texas and Ohio that's.
By the current political you can lay and -- -- -- stayed loose they wanna kind of goes back and forth and really.
-- incident -- that is yeah.
Think we'll have a economical coincidence spray unit -- amphibious vehicle you know we we we talked about -- impact which for those don't know the rim of the Pacific exercise they have -- Brings really thirty different nations that are US along with point nine others.
Mom that are all partners and Pacific to do all kinds of activities -- in the Pacific into some great maneuvers over the course of a month.
-- and preparation for everything from the humanitarian response to to military.
-- and you know a drastic Russian military.
Exercises so to speak.
We saw a lot of the amphibious vehicles there and a lot of them are big they're heavy they're hoping they work what they're not necessarily up to date with today's military.
And we do know they have some of like the hovercraft if they're great to -- a wants to get to land of course and things slowdown so it's really overseeing some right there online using one of the amphibious.
A Unisys used right now -- It -- works but not necessarily where it needs to beat today so -- Tell us we we know so far with these this this this these first group of three guys what they've come up -- And you've as -- you've captured in a nut shell out of play you're gonna put me out of a job about -- careful of that ten dollars.
I see happening U I setup and then you can -- -- on ending the Liberia.
No I -- I know I love working -- because he's now they have such command of the area but.
I -- -- actually I brought some footage of rim could that you're familiar with that so they got to see a bit about it and I have for gonna throw up.
A bit more footage but -- I was pretty cool shows the actual -- how it.
At that would help explain to.
Viewers how -- -- get you know this is why its own -- that Marines here this is from exercise.
I Camp Pendleton -- you're going to see how these amphibious attack of vehicles are assault vehicles.
And it's pretty slow moving like he described doesn't exactly look terrifying empire the enemy.
As -- what they'd like to do with the new vehicle is dead marine -- senate these near requirements and he's he's off the -- kind of like we're seeing each -- to carry seventeen Marines.
They -- -- beach at least twelve -- and it has it twelve miles out from -- so.
Why that's super important is right now.
-- them their only two miles out which -- I don't need to explain to -- really creates quite a vulnerability for our Marines so -- we wanna do is keep the ship it's far out from shore as possible.
And have an assault vehicle that can get them in safely to shore as quickly as possible.
Another key thing is which people might not realize it -- -- operate on land so.
I found just about getting the Marines onshore it's about giving them the capability they need to -- effective and -- lethal as possible so.
They wanted to have the Abrams people -- from -- you are with the Abrams -- so they're not to have those sorts of capabilities in terms of speed.
And -- -- ability right now it's nearly falling short and it's such a desperate need it's.
The cut it's just not it's a sad story was got a 63 billion dollars.
It's a shame that money could've gone elsewhere so I'm really hoping that we'll get the word out and encourage other innovators.
There's about a thousand participated in this round I'd love to see those numbers go up I'm sure Darko was well -- But I mean I -- to your thoughts -- -- and I and what we need to see what you hit it won't capabilities.
A couple things raising money when a government that never happens 12.
Tell us about things that's that's what they've come up with correct rate means on -- it's fast adaptable next generation ground vehicle.
Exactly right so it's get isn't it given me -- put they're still looking for this -- in a -- -- this is the winning design.
After the first stage -- look at it the first time -- -- they had to focus on mobility and drive chain so.
I know -- -- -- putting a whole lot more about this idea.
But the next time they'll be focusing on -- chassis.
And -- a -- challenge will be the overall vehicle so not only to get a chance to win the prize money you lost get a chance to actually see your vehicle made that they'll make it in.
I foundry which is pretty exciting cool and all of that happening is -- they'll have to be it'll compete with other vehicles from the traditional sectors so.
You -- your usual big companies.
Trying to win the bid for this but I think it's just such a fantastic idea.
Yes it does push them and yet it -- of them and it wanna take -- advocate group.
I decided to just who worked with -- in Toronto I'm working people they can go to let's outline dark like I -- working they find out more information about the -- take -- look at.
I'll be by nature I put all that -- -- concept holidays that hasn't done that yet come but.
It is -- they can go to our bottom line and I foundry and vehicle -- Archie website that they might want to have a look at.
And I really encourage people to you know it's a great opportunity.
To help all military and how cool -- -- like how often do get to design a vehicle will actually be used by air ride horses.
The clock for -- the prize money isn't so that I that -- that -- Developing the next and fitness assault vehicle Alison there -- article be up on line soon you can find it of course -- foxnews.com.
I'm sure -- -- a -- -- -- its second and out and seeing all the more information of course to obviously get a lot more in depth that we came here.
So check it out foxnews.com we'll be up today Alison thanks for joining us is always good to bad.
All right so we go from New York back at a loss -- -- -- -- guest live in studio talking about if you have a PC at home which.
And how many of you have apples like -- right.
No the PC of course is still the most popular computer in the world.
But we have some great information coming up about what the future PCs may or may not -- -- live right here in studio and of course we have.
Our gadgets one of them you've never seen before in the first person -- be the first people to see it today as it's released today for the first time that's coming up you're surely stick with us.
Welcome back just once -- past the hour to point to -- course here in the West Coast and everything East Coast they so we're gonna north West Coast time we have had a luncheon here on the West Coast we do have a guest in studio.
I see affair -- he's with info street you can find there what's that infamous thestreet.com you also you Twitter is.
Asked era that's correct FAR a H if you don't know -- -- on Twitter you can follow what -- Farrah.
And it helps of course ask those questions right here.
On fox news live or on Twitter on FaceBook you talk about how I cloud computing.
You know is being used by a lot of people and I use it we present for my iPhone seeks to my.
IPad two in my mind I'm a Mac -- had a PC in my office but I mean.
Mostly Mac and -- -- and intimate pictures values you're a lot more than that but how you know how -- -- really becoming bomb.
Did the norm.
What does that mean for PCs.
So what has happened is that the world has gone through.
-- revolution and each revolution after while becomes an evolution like you know when the CD's first came out there were evolution revolution over cassette -- now they're.
Kind of the next generation.
So what happened is that we went through a revolution.
And -- what happened was that the operating system what was windows or Mac or whatnot became irrelevant and people are using applications straight to the clout.
So because of that the next step of that is the device.
That you are connecting to becomes irrelevant so that you could use any device at any point at any time to access your data in -- applications.
More than more than half of all businesses in the US are currently using the -- What does that mean what does that do obviously people are using them more Mormon obviously there's opens up the possibility some problems -- the same time and it's such a great ability for a lot of people to keep connected with each other with themselves with multiple devices does that mean the PC -- obviously has to adapt.
What the PC could adapt but there's a limitation to quote unquote -- -- meaning that.
It is local and they just had -- but we are no longer local and we're no longer tethered.
So we need to be with something that works with how we work today.
And therefore we need to work wherever we are we need to have access to information whenever we needed and we cannot be always added to ask -- Just Sydney at -- machine so therefore.
Any device that is on us is the most valuable device and that is not a PC you don't -- -- -- right so does that mean.
Did he sees near.
The death what death is a very strong I -- -- -- asking if she becomes PC becomes yet another access device and it becomes a lot more irrelevant that it used to.
People can still obviously -- -- it still has to be a PC UPC usage correct -- -- listening to dialed down version we're talking about like we see on our cell phone type situations -- -- in this situation is that when you're doing cloud computing most of the heavy lifting is done to console any old piece -- -- do.
He used to be that every 23 years people had to replace a -- he couldn't just too slow they can work anymore.
But now you most of the computers in the copy axis and with a browsers so any PC was -- There's -- a lot of bad local uses for PC people want to.
You know views may be -- local files.
You know like ward -- or talk like that they can do it -- -- -- prefer local or they want to.
Make a -- -- to their pictures -- there's still value but is not as central.
To our every -- life -- he used to.
Right but I'm waste here at their worst this and on the show next moment -- which has soared gadgets but for example this is the new Samsung galaxy note which Cameron talked about -- a minute.
-- bring up his immunity this this obviously is not apple based this has got more the PC idea to -- mean what.
Is this what we're talking about that -- we talking about something that's.
You portable light easy not the typical PC which again the reason why my -- -- -- PC is because the business applications and it.
I she likes apple but PC really is where it's at for her grasping for years -- What does that mean for people like that would.
That's exactly one of the things that has -- is if you look at the amount of sales that apple has had recently a lot of people achieve it at two iPhone and everything but it's reality is.
The base of application is substantially wider before if he had a business application only ran on PC you have to work on PC.
But not the best of breed applications are under cloud so you could use your Mac user -- -- tablet you could use anything so that's why it's not as.
It basically doesn't have -- local arguing that cloud has become the great democratize or were before we used to -- other PC people or Mac people.
Now we are our own people and we can use any device to get to -- it.
The devices in the operating systems that run them have become irrelevant and bring all that is relevant is what we wanted to do at this minute.
That's the way to access the that is exactly right all right we'll see if -- -- -- cut dot com you can find more information about them a poster -- com also you can follow and that asked era.
That's act as there of course if you're on Twitter really -- time great information yes on the -- the thought about the -- becoming so popular and think about you know.
Houston and access a cloud in the clouds really -- the -- isn't going to be that's exactly well that NASA will present at that -- is legendary here thank Barack are run a break -- quickly come back we will once again just to -- -- -- -- -- he'll be able to to watch his show some of the guys who live in studio including one on how to you know one of them.
The Samsung galaxy we have right here but we also have something you've never seen before there's been released just for today.
Stay with us we'll see that couples a couple of -- that's about a minute and a half.
All right welcome back it is 28 past the hour we have a couple things to show -- here could at the -- of -- in a personal data segment if you haven't seen before something we do each week.
Try to say things you haven't seen before homes to me something is new for today.
We have a couple of really cool items of Saudi right now in fact we've done only be of the galaxy was a get two and a second but there's we're gonna start up with -- where to go -- others this.
He is a very cool is all the Bluetooth -- this is -- today you could not on this before the day is literally the release date the Bluetooth all right here.

And then from your -- you can be anywhere you can change the color you can change turn on you -- off.
Call the Bluetooth all are really -- cost of cool idea one of the things coming out of course as we get more more involved with our Smartphones a one of the great things you can do is use the -- -- 01 of the fun things you can do -- -- -- use a Bluetooth folded in sixty dollars.
At blue bull dot com the next thing is win cleaner talking about PCs effect on line here Robin Robin soul asked about the updated Microsoft surface.
And I'll look into that they'll try get your report that for next week I don't know about that.
But I -- that would take a look at that our Robin soul who judge you two out comedy -- on here on the live chat.

Eight point oh this is the new one.
This and we just got in the mail as well really cool -- -- back and forth.
It's just it's so interactive and so user friendly when it -- signed on to it earlier -- commercial.
It asked me everything from Dropbox to Google.
I mean to sync up right away with a -- five.
-- very user friendly again I'm an apple guy.
But I gotta tell you this thing is incredibly impressive Tom avalanches to -- -- -- but I'll give you a full report next week but so far so good.
And you can swipe back right through everything -- if you show that right there you see there's the main -- is like run over to the the calendar.
You can keep going to right field right on flip board -- fantastic new thing out from Samsung of course also could be a phone is a large phone but he can be -- While more for you on this next who have a chance to mess around with that it's out right now the prices vary from everything from how much did you want to.
If you wanna unlocked or not so the prices very really widely so what do predatory prices up there are forty and academia to find an -- -- And the last thing for -- this -- audio tech because now it's one of those that had phone companies out there that a blessing really in the -- you mean out of heard about.
I can't tell you we found about five years ago we're at CES.
We know there out there you hear more of the bigger name some public and is a big company in my downplaying that.
But sometimes they get may be a lost in the shuffle but I hesitated -- for head phones have been fantastic and use -- a -- done number of different ones.
This is the new one this -- -- call the Sonics sport they're 9995.
They were on absolutely.
Made to work at -- you're doing physical activity.

Over the last five years one of those companies get to big company but sometimes -- you you hear more of these of the flashier once the beats by doctor gray and that kind of thing.
But I detect a -- -- ones as well.
All right that's our show for today again -- -- -- we showed -- the -- -- the blue -- the audio technical and the Samsung -- the galaxy -- point -- we're gonna show this to you next week we'll have -- -- the ball for you next week along -- along with some new gadgets as well with these two will be -- -- To show you put him in place.
And be able to give you for -- and the Samsung and help would be able to change the color on the bold.
