Dyson’s Zone is a headset cover that handles the air you breathe and pumps it into your face. Now that we know the price ($949!) and launch date (March 2023), the company invited the press to wear the baffled device in and test it out a bit more extensively.
With a dark blue color with copper accents, it looks a bit more subtle than the press image. But it will still turn around. The Dyson zone is not designed to protect against COVID-19 or other viruses, as it does not stick to your face. The air purifier’s filters have a double-layer design with potassium-rich carbon to capture acidic gases. The company claims the filters will block 99% of particles, including those as small as 0.1 microns to “filter out city smoke and pollutants”. However, you can use accessories such as the N95 mask attachment – also supplied by Dyson.

He asked users if he should resign and they decided to vote yes.
Elon Musk booked his own Twitter leadership over the weekend. “Should I resign as head of Twitter? I will follow the results of this poll,” he tweeted. The poll ended and 57.5% of users voted “Yes”, compared to 42.5% who voted no (with 17,502,391 votes) – a decisive 15 point difference. It remains to be seen whether (and how and when) Musk will follow through with his poll, as he has yet to comment on the results. Shortly after announcing the vote (and when it tipped to Yes), he tweeted “as the saying goes, be careful what you want, because you can get it.”
The vote follows a flurry of activity on Twitter after Twitter announced an abrupt rule change banning users from affiliated with competing platforms and banning some influential users soon after. A backlash ensued, prompting an apology from Musk, who also tweeted that “in the future, there will be a vote on major policy changes.” Then, in another poll yesterday, @TwitterSafety asked users if they should “have a policy that prevents the creation or use of existing accounts for the primary purpose of advertising to platforms.” other social media platforms or not.”

Instagram has been focusing more on Stories this year, and that extends to how users create their 2022 Summary — whether you like it or not. Select at least three photos or videos and Instagram will automatically stitch them together into a Story with narrative templates from the likes of Bad Bunny, Priah Ferguson, and DJ Khaled.

It ‘abused its dominant position.’
Europe has hit Facebook Meta owners with complaints that their Marketplace classified service is unfair to competitors. By linking its main social media site to Marketplace, it has a “significant distribution advantage” over rivals, the EU Commission wrote in a press release.
“With its social network Facebook, Meta reaches billions of monthly users globally and millions of active advertisers,” the EU’s High Commissioner for Antitrust said in a statement. “Our initial concern was with Meta linking its dominant social network, Facebook, with online classified advertising services called Facebook Marketplace. This means that Facebook users automatically have access to the Facebook Marketplace, whether they want it or not.” All of this is in violation of EU rules that prohibit abuse of a dominant market position. The EU reserves the right to fine up to 10% of Meta’s annual revenue and prohibit this practice. The head of Meta’s EMEA competition said “the European Commission’s claims are baseless.”
