  • We’re all getting ready for Avengers: Endgame, and Marc and Laura are thinking of cheating on their friends.
  • Queen Bey blessed us all by dropping Homecoming on Netflix. We’re ready to bow down – are you?
  • Laura is around 100 pages into the Mueller Report and has some lesser-reported deets. What would YOU do if you got a phone call in Russian on election night?
  • If your selfie has no visible likes on Instagram, how will you determine your self-worth? Twitter and Instagram are testing hiding like counts from their audiences.
  • To VR or not to VR? Sony’s PS5 to be modular and VR-focussed, while Xbox and Google are banking on streaming. Our official gaming correspondent Marc weighs in.
  • Netflix harkens back to simpler times by testing a feature that will play a random episode of a popular show.
