In 2020, big businesses and institutions really started jumping into Bitcoin. Now Tesla has invested $1.5 billion into the cryptocurrency and is working on plans to let customers pay with it when buying its EVs.

Apple officially released its HomePod smart speaker back in February, which means it has now spent over six months on the market and six months in the hands of consumers like myself.
