Tech news
On Thursday, TikTok's CEO, Shou Zi Chew, will be opening a lion's mouth and placing his own head into it. He's giving testimony in the US Congress for the first time, a scary thing to do. And at stake is the future of the phenomenally popular video-sharing app in the US. "I think that there is a real risk that if this hearing doesn't go well… that could have a massive impact on the future of TikTok," said Chris Stokel-Walker, author of TikTok Boom. Mr Chew is likely to face a barrage of questions on TikTok's relationship with China, what data it collects, and what it does with it. He'll also be quizzed on why several journalists were spied on by ByteDance employees - something TikTok has already admitted. Mr Chew will say user data is safe - away from the reach of the Chinese government. He knows politicians from all sides want to see the platform either sold - or outright banned in the US.

National Day of Unplugging (March 3-4, 2023)
A day for raising awareness of the presence of technology in so many people's lives and which encourages people to "unplug" when they can (maybe by going outside and doing something in nature?)

Digital clone is digital version of you saved in cloud. With modern tech you can make the clone speak what you want with some limits. You can supposedly have conversation with this clone after you die.

Has the android standby time improved?
So I bought a new phone, charged it before I went to bed and left it on and the phone was not charging. Before I went to sleep I had 99% of battery left and I had the same 99% during morning. So no battery was wasted even though I had my phone on. On a last phone it would use 10% of battery of I left it on at night.
