How tech guru Clayton Morris joins the company right now all right -- -- got cut to store as a way to go through first of all I wanna start with FaceBook.
Is -- possible information that FaceBook passed a -- it's 845.
That is the source of value to that company that's been -- theme this week.
You agree bingo absolutely you know people are sort of down on the revenues -- I'm surprised but if you actually look and you compare where FaceBook is right now with the young Google almost the same path almost the same path so.
-- that -- trajectory.
Things -- that -- trajectory hold true.
But to -- the real value isn't WIRED Magazine get -- great piece and that's about three years ago.
Saying that -- the company did that Google is scared of why because at the time they were keeping all that information private.
If I was gonna search Stuart Varney and look for your FaceBook profile wouldn't find it if I did that on Google -- -- hidden kept -- behind a wall because to them that information was incredibly valuable.
Now FaceBook is open that lever they've opened up a damn about last year or year and a half or so so I do a search unable to find information about you through your FaceBook profile.
That information is ridiculously valuable.
And I would -- -- forest argue more valuable than Google because they know everything they know what TV shows you're watching.
I read the Washington Post -- the Wall Street Journal in these social reader app that's built in the FaceBook so what does that mean that means I'm reading the Washington Post inside of FaceBook.
So I click on this article about the Super Bowl all of my friend suddenly see that I'm reading an article about the super -- They then click on that article they want to and there are so the Washington Post is seeing an increase like this because it's built in the FaceBook.
And you can I presume you get a profile.
Of each of those 845.
Million worldwide users and is a very interesting and detailed profile food at all whether you all what they do how much been the whole -- lacks a -- -- that -- even beyond just the likes -- mood did you think about the moon in The Who have a bad day right that's in the status update.
Haven't had Dave today so what sort of advertising who cast -- that's Big Brother right it's it's better than I went to a movie.
-- -- there's two assumptions you're one.
-- advertisers are gonna com.
Two on the click through to them and I guess -- the third assumption is I'm not gonna get annoyed by all that and leave and go try something else because eventually it's didn't you know -- diminishing returns.
Eventually I'm gonna get his capital the -- -- that you something unless.
Unless -- targeted for you right.
When I'm on Amazon now -- buy books I just finished reading a book on president McKinley the other day and right underneath that with a recommended titles for me.
And I thought I have never heard of these three books I click through all three of them and they were they were perfect and I added them to my wish list because they were targeted for me.
Now I see all sorts of weird things in -- to have no relevance to me.
You know I want it to airplane flying lessons -- I would never wanna do that that's -- on the interest me if I see that sort of stuff.
That I'm less likely to click through with its target and I'd -- love it between Google and face -- Who will have more targeted and hence useful information right now FaceBook.
Why -- global launch Google+ earlier this year.
And -- trying to unify all these folks are unified.
It's on one platform.
So right now I would say FaceBook I think -- FaceBook as a one company -- scared of.
Real facts thank you very much indeed feel forma appears last appearance on the show -- you said that Microsoft is the open coma.
I pose some stock -- Microsoft that thing is gone -- over thirty dollars a -- look at it now thirty dollars and three.
Clinton thank you very much and they -- welcome however you mention.
That that coming out with a new Xbox towards the end of 2013 I know that's way help that right.
That's a big deal tell me why well I think look they've managed to cut the fat at Microsoft and focusing on the things that are making money.
They're starting to really unify their platforms giving them out -- what what does this new Xbox -- have some new capacity -- -- much faster.
Much faster visual enhancement well look in the gaming space you've got eight years I think the Xbox has been on the market now like 67 years.
And they still sold millions of them -- Christmas time.
So -- -- this need like in the phone I don't have a new phone every year what can I literally Xbox in 2013.
I can sit there I can.
Change channels -- -- the wave of my hand walk into the room and say Xbox I wanna watch Barney and company.
-- goes right it recognizes my face knows that I'm in the room so it automatically wakes up from being asleep.
And -- to might might user profiles I -- do video chat with my friends my family around the country because -- recognizing my face and it'll be much faster.
And the graphics will be that much better.
So and if you're gonna have to wait for -- sort of technology but people are getting excited about it they aren't they that's also the sort of looks like very much debate Clinton could build up that was good one person like I said it's over thirty dollars -- chatter won't get a lot retirement -- for a guy like.
