Glenn explains why Google will outperform Apple in the future

On Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook delivered his highly anticipated keynote address in Cupertino, California debuting two new versions of the iPhone and the company’s first smartwatch called ‘Apple Watch.’ U2 also gave a surprise performance at the event and gave away half a billion free downloads of their yet-to-be-released album. On radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Stu gave their thoughts on the new product launch.

“Did you see U2 released its album for free on iTunes,” Glenn asked. “I would like iTunes to release their watches and phones for free.”

As TheBlaze reported, the Apple Watch is the company’s first completely new product in four years. Additionally, it is Apple’s first wearable device and considered the most ambitious expansion since Cook replaced Steve Jobs three years ago.

While Apple junkies will undoubtedly be lining up to purchase the watch when it comes out early next year, Pat was not particularly impressed.

“I just found out moments ago it works only in conjunction with the iPhone,” Pat said of the Apple Watch. “Get back to me when you've got it working on its own.”

The latest versions of the iPhone both come with larger screens and a more streamline design. The iPhone 6 will feature a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus will have a 5.5-inch screen. The screen resolution on the Plus version will be sharper than previous iPhones and the battery life will be longer.

Apple also announced a new payment system known as Apple Pay. According to TheBlaze, consumers will be able to use their phone cameras to capture a photo of their credit cards. Apple will verify the authenticity of the card and store the information in the phone’s Passbook account so people can make payments at a retailer. Partnerships for Apple Pay already include Apple Macy’s, Whole Foods, Walgreens, and Disney stores.

Retailers who participate in the Apple Pay system will need to be outfitted with the proper hardware and software. Pat and Stu believe this represents yet another step toward societal domination for Apple.

“They're smart,” Pat said. “Almost all of society is going to have to buy Apple products.”

But Glenn wasn’t so sure.

“Here’s the ironic thing. Apple is servicing the wealthiest 1%: America. We're the ones buying all the Apple stuff because we can afford it,” Glenn said. “Most people can't afford this… In some parts of South America, the Apple iPhone is a thousand dollars. In Africa, it is the same.”

Glenn believes it is Google – not Apple – that will prove to be the technology company of the future.

“Google [is] building the rest of the world. Apple is spending time on America, and America is a dying market. America is a market that is not going to have all of the wealth that it once had or currently has in the next 10 years,” he explained. “So there are people that are predicting that Apple is on the wrong course because they are going for the elite instead of going for the masses.”

Pat, however, didn’t agree.

“I like the tact that Apple is betting on America. I like that,” Pat said. “They're an American company who are targeting Americans. I think that's great.”

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
