Lizard Squad, a hacker group, has been pretty busy over Christmas. First it knocked down PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, bringing online gaming on PlayStation and Xbox consoles to a standstill, and then set its sights on an anonymity network called Tor. Lizard Squad shifted its focus over the weekend, saying that it would “no longer attack” gaming services, and instead go after Tor with a zero-day exploit.

Each year Apple conducts a special retail store event for people who are based in Japan. The event actually stems from the tradition known as Fukubukuro where retailers will fill a bag with mysterious products and sell that bag for a lot less than the original price, customers only get to know what’s inside the bag once they’ve purchased it. Apple follows this tradition and has given away MacBooks and iPads in the past as part of its Lucky Bag event.

Samsung has a habit of releasing multiple variants of its flagship devices. Usually there’s little difference between these variants, the most common being Samsung’s own Exynos processors instead of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips, and these are distributed as per particular market requirements. Some variants tend to be limited to one country, take the Galaxy note 4 S-LTE (SM-N916) for example, which is destined for launch in South Korea next month.

For example this year Amazon gave away applications worth $220 for free, while other services had their own offerings. Apple has been doing something similar for the past six years, known as “12 Days of Christmas” or “12 Days of Gifts,” but it appears to have halted the promotion this time around.

A report out of Denver brings to light a rather interesting incident that occurred a week ago. A man purchased one PlayStation 4 bundle from a Walmart in Stapleton, Colorado and was surprised to find two bags of rocks inside the box instead of the console. Its not uncommon to hear about people being duped, but usually its limited to purchases made off of Craigslist or eBay, rarely does one expect this to happen at a major retail chain. There’s more than meets the eye to this story.
