Other news we’re watching

  • Zoomers love TikTok – Remember when your parents joined Facebook and it instantly became uncool? Well, it seems like Instagram is headed in that direction as well. TikTok is naynaying (sorry, we couldn’t resist) across Instagram’s parade with the youth as it’s surpassed Instagram for kids aged 12-17.
  • Apple Wants to Kill Your Steering Wheel – Remember when Apple courageously removed the headphone jack from the iPhone? Well, their next target is to make the steering wheel obsolete in your next car. Count us in, as long as we can watch the newest episode of The Morning Show while commuting to work.
  • $0 in Revenue, World’s 3rd Most Valuable Car Company — The EV company, Rivian, is the world’s third most valuable car company at approximately $140B, despite delivering less than 200 vehicles. Honestly, we wish we had some witty commentary for this…but we’ll let you fill in the blanks on this one.
