The Angle is tech x society

Over a decade at TechCrunch – with short breaks to work at Apple and Shopify – I (hi, I’m Darrell Etherington) have seen first-hand how tech shaped and eventually came to dominate society, transforming everything in its path and remapping the world to the sleek bevelled contours of the iPhone.

From Apple, Google, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Microsoft – to more recent leviathans like TikTok and OpenAI, subscribing to The Angle will provide you an insider’s view into what’s going into the tech industry decisions that shape and shake society.

The Angle publishes twice weekly – a Friday update that rounds up the most impactful news in tech from across the industry, highlighting the best reporting and the stories that matter most. Whether you want to know how it’ll impact your business, or what it means for you as a person just living your life, you’ll get that here.

On Tuesdays, The Angle delivers a more in-depth analysis of one focused topic or story for that week. I’ll examine the implications of product launches, policy decisions, investments, executive shifts and acquisitions. If you ever ask yourself ‘what’s the angle here?’ when reading the latest tech news, you’ll find out in this second weekly edition.
