Kim Kardashian West revealed what husband Kanye West gave her this Christmas: Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stock in major companies including Disney, Apple, and Amazon. In an Instagram story—visible to her 105 million followers—shared on Tuesday, the reality TV star and entrepreneur shared how Kanye delivered the stock-ing stuffer.
“So for one of my Christmas presents from Kanye, he gives me this little box with a Disney Mickey toy, Apple headphones, Netflix [and] Amazon gift cards and Adidas socks,” Kardashian says, as her camera pans over the box of gifts. “And I’m like ‘that’s so sweet, thanks!’”
“But then, I open the next box and it is stock to Amazon, where he got the gift cards, stock to Netflix, stock to Apple—hence the little headphones—Adidas stock and Disney stock,” she says in the next installment, revealing stock certificates for the five companies. Kardashian wrote “best husband alert!” as the caption.
While most of the certificates are hidden from the camera, viewers of the Instagram story can see that Kim was gifted 920 Disney (dis) shares, which the certificate says are valued at around $ 100,000. The Instagram story also shows that she was given 995 Adidas (addyy) shares, which would also have a total value of around $ 100,000 at current prices.

Once upon a time if you wanted employees to collaborate you’d probably encourage them to use Internet Relay Chat (IRC). But about three years ago Slack appeared on the scene, and since then it’s been eating IRC’s lunch. That’s because it’s much easier to install, get up and running, and use than IRC, making it massively popular with nontechies. And thanks to a well-documented API it’s easy to integrate with other programs and services. That means it’s customizable and infinitely extensible, which makes it popular with developers.
Australians want data. Lots of it.
The country consumed about 50 percent more data in the last three months of 2015 than in the same period in 2014, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ (ABS) twice-yearly Internet activity report, which was released Wednesday.
That’s 1.71 million terabytes, up from 1.15 million terabytes in 2014. It’s also a 23.5 percent increase on the three months preceding June 30, 2015, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop there.
In the year Netflix launched in Australia, along with homegrown streaming options like Presto and Stan, that increase is not too surprising. Not a month after Netflix launched in March 2015, Internet service providers like iiNet were already feeling the strain from the spectacular spike in demand. Read more…
