Episode 278 includes the crypto implosion affecting nightclubs, a Twitter hack bigger than feared, and is Apple really spying on you?

Episode 278 of the Transatlantic Cable kicks off with news that the previous Twitter hack, back in 2021, is actually much larger than initially suspected. Not great news for the already troubled social media site. From there, the team discuss recent news that nightclub owners in Miami are struggling with slumping sales after the recent crypto crash. It appears many crypto advocates moved there to spend their hard-earned coins, but are now having to tighten their belts.

Staying in the cryptocurrency world, the next story looks at yet another crash with BlockFi moving into receivership. Is this the crypto bubble bursting? Time will tell, it seems.

To wrap up, a story for all the Apple fans out there, with news that Apple appears to be tracking its users, even if those users have asked them not to. Concerning? Possibly – especially considering that they made privacy a key focal point of their recent advertising campaigns.
