Netflix launches an online retail store

Hackers have broken into the systems of Electronic Arts, one of the world's biggest video game publishers, and stolen source code used in company games.

CNN reports they stole the Frostbite source code, which is the game engine that powers the FIFA, Madden, and Battlefield series of video games, among others.

The EA breach was not a ransomware attack.

Netflix has opened an online shop selling products inspired by shows like "Lupin" and "The Witcher."

Current offerings include hoodies, necklaces and a kendama toy, all inspired by "Yasuke" and "Eden."

Netflix.shop is only running in the US for now but will expand to other countries in the coming months.

Coinbase and 401k provider ForUsAll have teamed up to give certain companies the opportunity to include cryptocurrency investing as part of their retirement plan.

The platform, called Alt 401(k), will allow workers in participating companies to transfer up to 5% of their account balances into a coinbase-traded cryptocurrency window. They will have over 50 cryptocurrencies to choose from.

Online sales are expected to grow between 18% and 23% this year.

Shoppers are reportedly buying luggage, shoes, new outfits and makeup, according to the National Retail Federation.
