“A 3rd degree, category 5 Zucking” — Instagram TV’s YouTube move. Zoox’s (maybe) acquisition. Apeel’s un-expiring avocados.
Zoox had the biggest ambitions in mobility: self-driving, electric, robo-taxis. But now it may sell out to become Amazon’s delivery boy. Instagram’s latest move to share ad revenue with influencers is the first big Zucking of YouTube. And our “Unicorn of the Day” is Apeel, which hit a billion-dollar valuation (thanks to Oprah money) to be the anti-aging serum for your fruit bowl.
“This rocket self-drive to space or what?” — SpaceX’s capitalist milestone. Alexa wants podcasts. The COVID-19 umbrella challenge.
“Guac never forgets” — Chipotle’s early COVID-proofing. Twitter’s un-scared threat. Draft Kings don’t care.
