We went phishing for all the best, most interesting tech news from the past 24-hours. From Medium's rule changes, to Nike having to cough up some money, here's what we caught in our nets.


New York Magazine under fire thanks to Bill Cosby fans

Late on Sunday night, New York Magazine's website crashed thanks to a denial-of-service (or DDoS) attack from a bunch of hackers that seemed far from impressed by the magazine's incredible cover feature, which featured 35 women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. The site appears to be back up now, so make sure you head over there to give the story a read. (The Verge).


Nike cough up $25 for FuelBand owners

Nike have agreed to offer FuelBand owners a $25 Nike gift card or $15 cash for dodgy claims made about the activity tracker's abilities. The company decided to offer up the "gift" in order to halt the rather expensive class action lawsuit they've been fighting for two years. If you bought a FuelBand between January 19, 2012 and June 17, 2015 - you'll have until January 4, 2016 to make a claim. (Geek).


What happens to your Facebook account when you die?

It's probably not up there with the "porn stash" debate (eugh), but obviously a big enough concern for Facebook to spend time on a solution. UK users of the site will be able to nominate someone to take over their account when they die. Access to private messages will be restricted. (The Next Web).


OnePlus unveil OnePlus 2, which is great for pun writers

Chinese startup OnePlus have followed up their hugely successful OnePlus One smartphone with OnePlus 2. It's an invite-only phone, and is available without a contract for $329. Given the amount of power packed into the phone, it's hardly a surprise that people have gone crazy over it. (CNET).


Medium tackles revenge porn and doxxing users

Beautiful blogging platform, Medium, have announced they're taking on revenge porn and posting private information by other people (doxxing). "We want Medium’s rules to be like the most human and practical kinds of rules - rules of hospitality, rules of the road, golden rules," says the company. "They show what we think it means for our guests to treat each other civilly, at least, and admirably, if possible. Now it's our job to apply those rules thoughtfully and fairly." (The Next Web).
