All the NewZ You Need Today
Was there even a weekend? If your week is anything like mine, it’s been a long one already. But we’re here, and we’re working it. Good job, us! This week, I’m working on putting together some new consultative offerings (stay tuned for deets!), cranking out new assignments and hosting a few lunch-and-learns.
We’ve got jobZ, productZ, newZ and perfect punchlines to kick off the week. To quote the acclaimed early 2000s lyricist Lil Jon, let’s goooooooooooooo.
Still taking pitcheZ for all my upcoming stories, but really looking for a some more for my Clean Plates piece, Energy-Boosting Foods That Don’t Have Caffeine. If you have a great addition for me, please send it my way! Read about all of the pitches I am looking for here please and thanks.
Stop lying, dammit. Netflix has added a disclaimer to its Season 5 trailer of The Crown following criticism. “Inspired by real events, this fictional dramatization tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II and the political and personal events that shaped her reign.” 😒
Netflix got the last laugh though. In 2023, the streaming giant will start charging users for sharing passwords. FKN petty.
Apple iOS 16.1 drops today. Updates include access to Apple Fitness+ without an Apple Watch, iCloud Shared Photo Library, Key Sharing in the Wallet app, and a new savings account option. Go to the gym and the bank from the comfort of your own phone!
YouTube Premium Family plans just jumped from $17.99 to $22.99 per month. Def sucks for the 11 people who pay for a YouTube Premium Family plan.
A new report by Cassandra found that 61% of Gen Z think that immersive experiences in the metaverse will create jobs and boost economic activity. I mean yeah obvi 20-year-olds have all the solutions to the world’s problems.
Chaos is in the air across the pond as Britain names its third Prime Minister in 7 weeks. Cheerio, bitches.
In a plan that sounds like it was hatched by Dennis the Menace, climate activists were arrested at Madame Tussauds today after throwing cake at the wax figure of King Charles. But guess what! They weren’t even the first Earth fangirl vandals. Yesterday, climate activists in Germany threw mashed potatoes at a Monet. And two weeks ago, Just Stop Oil redecorated a Van Gogh with tomato soup. Because everyone knows the only way to get taken seriously is to start a food fight.
