After Math: Oh boy, new toys!

Seven feet of Christmas cheer: For $115, Amazon will be more than happy to deliver a Douglas Fir to your front door. Just be sure to tip the delivery driver if you live at the top of a four-flight walk-up.

$60: Want to “Switch” up your gaming experience? Now you can relive the nostalgia — and hand-cramping ergonomics — of the original NES controllers with the new generation of Nintendo console!

$1,100: The Xs Max only $300 more than last year’s flagship Apple phone. What’s the big deal? It’s not like you’re going to trade it in for an updated model exactly 11 months and three weeks from now.

The Spotify App is shown in an Apple iPad mini

10,000: Spotify finally, finally got around to loosening its chokehold on the number of songs its users can download for offline playback and did so in a big way this week. The company announced that it would effectively triple the cap, jumping from 3,333 songs up to a cool 10,000. Because who doesn’t love round numbers?

The 21-day bitcoin challenge

There is a documentary series currently airing on iQiyi, China’s Netflix equivalent, about a Chinese bitcoin enthusiast who attempts to survive 21 days by merely living on 0.21 bitcoin, or $1,300, without any help or donations.

Her name is something of a nom de guerre – a nickname, with “You Bing” directly translating to “having a disease,” and the whole name alludes to the girl’s over-enthusiasm for bitcoin.

Watch out: there’s a new web code exploit that can crash your iPhone

 You should always be wary of links sent over email and social media – even if they seem to come from a trusted source – but it’s worth being particularly suspicious this weekend: iOS security researcher Sabri Haddouche just discovered a new block of web code that can crash and restart an unsuspecting iPhone.

There’s no way to actually run any malicious code using the exploit though, so you won’t find any of your apps or data compromised as a result of visiting one of these webpages. You might, however, find your iPhone crashing instantly after you’ve opened up what looked like an innocuous web link sent by one of your contacts.

Don’t panic

You can dig into the source code of the exploit for yourself if you know your CSS [...]  read more
