The Top 3

  • Tim Cook and green bubbles: Christine is an Android user and her iPhone-using friends talk about “green bubbles”, but until now she didn’t know that this was a problem. Christine’s speech bubbles come in all different colors and even tell her who is “speaking” in a group. However, she has now learned that her iPhone-using friends secretly hate her green bubbles. Tim Cook is on their side, Ivan writes.
  • Environmental Mesh: That’s the name of the new Istio service mesh from Google and We will yield to Frederick to explain what all that means.
  • Electric devout: Jeep has three, three new electric vehicles, ah ah ah!, ready to hit the market from 2023, Jaclyn reports.

Startups and VC

It’s day 2 of Y Combinator-vaganza, which means we’ve got buckets and buckets of news for you. Assuming news comes in buckets, but that’s a talk for another day.

Tage reports that YC’s latest batch cuts the presence of African startups by more than half, and Anna, Alex and Tage are curious where Y Combinator is hunting for startups in 2022. And Kylea explored 7 AI startups that stood out among the YC hopefuls, and a ton of writers selected our 11 favorite companies from Day 1 and Day 2 and the moonshots.

After meeting hundreds of companies since the downturn began, Garg has written a fundraising guide for seed stage founders hoping to take it to the next level.

“I’ve noticed a common trait among founders who have organized successful Series A rounds: they’re great at telling the stories of their companies,” says Garg.

Big Tech Inc.

So much Apple, so little time. The Apple iPhone 14 event dominated our second day news cycle, especially this one by Greg, who we think summed up everything about the event nicely. If you want to read every drooling detail, head over to the Apple Fall Event Hub.

Speaking of things to salivate, Christine wrote a short piece on Bloomingdale’s foray into the metaverse with its new virtual store that looks like it will make your wallet envy.
