Hello and welcome to the Daily Crunch for December 22, 2022! Greg here again. I handle the newsletter for Alex for this last part of the year while taking a well deserved break.

    The TechCrunch Top 3

    • Essential Spiritual Success: Over the years, the smartphone field has kind of boiled down to an iPhone no matter what the cool Android phone is right now. Is there room for another competitor? A group of former employees of Essential - a company that put one phone before shutting down and sold the brand to OnePlus co - founder Carl Pei - have thought that and are working on an Android-based phone on privacy under the OSOM brand (pronounced "horrible" for why not.)
    • The COVID-19 Bluetooth test has a bug: A COVID-19 test at home that uses a Bluetooth-enabled analyzer to deliver certified results? Sounds handy. Unfortunately, researcher Ken Gannon discovered that this one can be manipulated by appearance.
    • Fisher-Price Chatter also has bugs: Speaking of Bluetooth bugs, it seems that this nostalgia novel speaker may have some issues of its own. If you have one, you probably want to make sure that it hangs properly when not in use.

    Before spending six figures to develop a brand philosophy, early stage startup teams need to create a solid foundation that reflects their shared vision.

    In the first of a series of articles on startup branding, Fuel Capital CMO Jamie Viggiano walks readers through the process of setting up a workshop where your founding team can “dig deep to into your motivations, motivations and ambitions. ”

    This exercise is an urgent investment: If you hire a branding group or consultant, they will do this work without you and the result will definitely be less guaranteed.

    “Skiing is a costly workaround that results in uncontrolled and uncontrolled branding, directly and negatively impacting the company’s growth potential,” Viggiano wrote.

    Big Tech Inc.

    • Zillow makes house hunting co-op game: The pandemic got people to do more stuff together at a distance - working, watching movies, playing games, and so on. It also showed just how much people kissed around Zillow as a hobby. Zillow combines those two moves together, tapping Apple's SharePlay to allow users to hunt for homes together from afar.
