Missed some of the big headlines from the past week? Don’t worry, Re/code has you covered:
- On Thursday evening, Re/code hosted a Code/Media event in downtown San Francisco, featuring conversations with YouTube celebrity kingmaker and Fullscreen CEO George Strompolos, Twitter’s VP of global media Katie Jacobs Stanton and Vox Media chairman and CEO Jim Bankoff.

- Amazon announced its own line of diapers and baby wipes, freaking out competing merchants who also sell stuff on Amazon. In other Amazon news, we broke down the five big things CEO Jeff Bezos revealed at an industry conference earlier in the week.
- After last week’s news that North Korean hackers might be behind the Sony security breach, we took a look at the destructive malware they used which also played a role in a 2013 hack against South Korea.

- Disneyland isn’t just the happiest place on Earth, it’s also the most Instagrammed. Coincidence? Probably not.
- Apple plans to offer free coding workshops in its retail stores, a nice preliminary rejoinder to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s comments criticizing Apple for its high-priced products. In other “Apple builds expensive stuff news,” the cost of the company’s new auditorium is reportedly a meager $161 million.
- Nintendo has been hurting badly for some time now, and it’s starting to look like it might never recover. For a company that’s dodged disaster in the past, could this be the beginning of the end?

- After School is an app that lets high schoolers gossip anonymously with one another. Predictably, it’s been kind of a disaster. We spoke with the app’s developers about their efforts to prevent cyberbullying and harassment.
