52:13 I used to live in Japan. IR was used to transfer contacts. So, when people were exchanging numbers, you would see them pointing (most flip phones) at each other like two remote controls. I had a blue Panasonic 920p. And Panasonic STILL makes flip phones now!
"where is the trust in the press"? Ha Ha, ask CNN, etc. We are tired of being lied to and there is a lot of that going on.
Correction for all the WhatsApp comment since US folks might not be familiar all that much with the app.It's basically the opposite of what David said. Brian Acton and Jan Koum, WhatsApp founders, have been from start very strong and vocal privacy advocates. They are responsible for implementing Open Whisper Systems' (Signal) end-to-end encryption algorithm on WhatsApp in a non half-assed way, which was what Facebook Messenger did among others like Google Messenger (it's an optional feature on Messenger, WhatsApp adopted it platform wide in a seamless transition, eveyone's message is encrypted by default).WhatsApp already has end-to-end encryption, it was implemented in 2016, before most other big messaging systems started thinking about doing it. The only thing the app does not encrypt is metadata, which Signal does. Signal still has stronger privacy implementation, WhatsApp wins on features.The reason why both co-founders left the company was due to Facebook forcing their way into collecting data from WhatsApp when they had initially said they weren't going to interfere with the app in the first place. It's not official, but I think they gave interviews on the topic. They left because Facebook was trying to destroy a significant part of the mission state of WhatsApp by trying to use it as a platform to put ads, harvest user data and such.One of them, Brian Acton, left to start the non-profit Signal Foundation. So you see, the reasoning here is obvious. They were unsatisfied with Facebook's internal policy of exploiting user data and selling it. They didn't want to be there when Facebook eventually overcomes resistance and shits all over the privacy part of the app.Facebook actually backtracked a bit on it, saying it happened only in tests and giving other types of lame excuses they are constantly giving these days, but the co-founders left because they weren't happy with Facebook's grubby hands approach and privacy destroying methods.It's also among the reasons why I don't trust Facebook when they say they are turning a page, because they only SAY it, their actions have proven hundreds of times over and over again that what they say do not correspond to what they do. Facebook has tested over the years several new things that essencially harvest user data and deliver ads on WhatsApp, but none of them were implemented platform wide just yet. If they do integrate WhatsApp with Messenger, I'm deleting the app altogether and turning to Signal only.It's also why I have been looking into alternatives to WhatsApp. Because I think eventually Facebook will have it's way with it and destroy the whole thing. If Facebook was really interested in making things more private, they would call back both founders of WhatsApp, give it back to them, and let them take care of it. But that's not happening because once again, all this marketing speech from Facebook's standpoing of turning a page and the future is private bullshit is nothing more than posturing for marketing's sake. They only have the courage to talk some crap like that because no one understand privacy anymore these days. It's all bullshit. They don't mention what they are going to use to achieve that, and all recent actions of the company, including asking for e-mail passwords, the constant leakaged of private data, the thousands of privacy rending "tests" they are constantly doing, all points to the opposite direction.

well, i don't think YouTube music just rips the audio from YouTube video, there is a drastic difference in quality between YouTube and YT Music's quality,. The rest of the show was enjoyable though.
Android official name has always been the version number, whether it's 1.6, 2.3, 3.1, 4.0, etc... The dessert name was always a code name. They didn't start putting the code name forefront until around the later on as Android as an OS matured.
Also check out the original Reigns! It is an amazing game also!
I liked the second gen Nexus 7 because of the size, screen, and stereo speakers that was there just like the (Kindle) Fire HDX that was 8 inchesI want to get one of both
