CNN accidently sent welcome baskets to CNN+ staffers who were laid off after the subscription service was shuttered, an innovative mom creates a subscription service for school supplies to help teachers, and a report shows that 54% of consumers who canceled subscriptions are rethinking their budgets. Also, Meta pushes publishers toward short-form video, Square expands the integration of Afterpay to in-store POS, and Microsoft wants to grow its cybersecurity business with new managed services.
