We are back after a week off with HEAPS of trending tech news: Elon Musk set to buy Twitter, the failure of CNN+ streaming service, Netflix shares tank, and signs of "NFT Bubble Bursting". We also dive deep into a few philosophical angles about AI vs. Art, and if we should recreate dead relatives in the metaverse as a way of grieving. We also touch briefly on Google's concept ambient notifications which are designed to reduce anxiety.
