With Monday upon us, it’s hard not to sit around daydreaming about the quickly fading memory that was the weekend. Maybe you spent it in the tulip fields of the Netherlands (as some of the TNW team did), or perhaps you just spent it trying to get over your horrific hangover, as the other half of the TNW editorial team did. Whatever you did, there’s a good chance that you weren’t paying much attention to tech news.
Luckily for you though, we’ve put together a quick list of everything you missed so you can get back up to speed in just a few minutes. All you need to provide is the coffee.
