#46 - Will Big Gaming become Big Tech?

20 mins | Sep 7, 2021

Today's episode from 8th September 2021. First this morning: What is the metaverse, and more importantly, who will it belong to? We peek into future of technology by looking at a lawsuit involving some of the biggest names in tech. History could well be written by the victors of this court battle. Later on, what if nothing mattered? Your name. Your job. Your life. We delve into nihilism and why it could actually help you to better understand your own time, money and energy. The metaverse is the newest buzzword in Big Tech's sphere. Facebook, Apple, Google and Microsft have all invested considerably in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality devices. But are they the only ones showing an interest? The Economist analyses how Epic Games' (the creators of Fortnite) lawsuits against Apple and Google over their app stores symbolise a highly contested battle over the future of these technologies. Wendy Syfret reflects on the idea that the rejection of all beliefs and values could be the key to helping you find happiness in the wake of Covid in this piece about nihilism from The Guardian. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
