Farewell iPod, Spectacular Crypto Crash, Spotify's Metaverse Island, and the Great Resignation's Great Regret?

May 16, 2022

A huge week in tech which started with the news of one of our favourite tech products being retired: Apple's iPod.  On top, the markets were on a death spiral - as was the world of crypto...particularly $LUNA. We also cover Google's I/O announcements, Twitter updates, and a few other trending news.
