🚀 Big Tech & Startups
The battle of the tech giants is never-ending. Is TikTok about to be the reigning champion? 👑
According to the research firm, Omdia, TikTok recently surpassed Netflix as the second-most popular video service for American users under the age of 35. But, YouTube is still in first place.
It’s a different scenario here in the UK, TikTok doesn’t even come close to taking the top spot. Instead, it sits in fifth place as the most-watched video service, falling behind iPlayer, Netflix and Amazon.
Netflix and YouTube are safe for now. Both platforms continue to own the 35+ age group, however, TikTok has big plans to bridge this gap. They’re also aiming to become the go-to search engine for Gen Z, meaning YouTube needs to ramp up its game if it wants to stay at the top.
🔭 Science & Futuristic Tech
Mission complete 🚀
NASA has successfully completed its Artemis I mission! After a historic journey around the Moon, the Orion spacecraft splashed its way into the Pacific Ocean.
Recap: The spacecraft set off on an unmanned journey. The only crew onboard these test flights were sensor-rigged mannequins and soft toys, Snoopy and Shaun the Sheep, as gravity detectors.
The spacecraft successfully landed on Sunday, reaching speeds of 24,500mph on its way back down to Earth. Now that Orion’s back on the ground, NASA will start capturing data from its sensor-equipped mannequins on board so it can get ready for future missions involving humans.

Discord is introducing ‘Linked Roles’. The new feature will be rolled out in the next couple of weeks, but what can you expect?
Admins and moderators will now be able to grant people access to certain channels and even entire servers based on which third-party apps and websites those people have connected to their Discord account. Supported accounts include the likes of Twitter, Steam, Reddit and more!
Discord is aware of privacy concerns, that’s why you’ll only be able to see a list of the roles you’re eligible for based on what accounts you have linked. You can then choose if you want to accept them.
