Elon Musk does not rest. One of his latest tweets hints that he’s at war with Apple!
Earlier this week, Twitter was filled with a series of tweets from its CEO, which were all aimed at Apple for allegedly threatening "to withhold Twitter from its App Store" and for pulling most of its ad spend on the platform. But, being the bigger person, Apple didn’t respond publicly.
Last week, Musk shared his idea of building his own smartphone if Apple pulled Twitter from its app store for violating its rules - but doing so would take enormous resources and time.

We can do a lot when we put our minds to it. But, are we able to control tech?
There have been recent ideas of implanting microchips into people’s brains with an aim of controlling the tech around us - by our thoughts alone! 🤯 Whilst it may sound like an unrealistic scientific concept, it is very much achievable.
You might not have realised, but microchips have already been medically implanted into brains due to their ability to record, transmit, stimulate, or even block activity in specific neurological locations.
The argument, therefore, boils down to this: is it ethically and socially acceptable to implant microchips into healthy individuals?

Dev, Data & Design 🧑💻
The amount of things to learn might seem overwhelming at first but just keep going. Little by little more and more pieces will fit together and everything won't seem so strange.
What is the professional progression like at Fika? I can see that you’ve moved up through the ranks quite quickly to become a senior software engineer.
One of the (many) things I love about Fika is that we have a very clear progression path with well-defined requirements for each level. The company will always support and help you to get to that next level.
How do you personally stay motivated when you face a big challenge during a project?
One of our core values at Fika is to try to "reframe challenges as opportunities", and this is really the key. If you're able to remind yourself when you are frustrated that the feeling of frustration and struggle is literally part of the process of learning and getting better at your craft, it really helps you push through those hard times. It's easier said than done of course 😂.
