This week: UK households cancel streaming subscriptions to cut costs, tech companies urge EU regulators to apply new laws to Google antitrust case...

It's been a week of swings and roundabouts for ad tech; in the UK, Brits cancelled their subscriptions to streaming services en masse to contend with the cost of living crisis, although Netflix reported its subscriber base is growing again thanks to hits such as Stranger Things and Better Call Saul.

In Europe, tech companies urged the EU Commission to use new regulation to challenge Google's anticompetitive behaviour. The tech giant, however, was occupied introducing a UK-version of its AI-interaction app, allowing users to communicate with its potentially-sentient LaMDA system.
