It was a weird, wild weekend for tech fans, with CinemaNow restoring customer store credit on Friday night, AT&T going on the offensive over cell phone unlocking and Netflix cutting off developer access to its public API. Missed those stories? Fear not, we're kicking off the week with a recap of those and other tales from the world of tech, so read on...
Imagine getting a great deal on gift cards, only to have the retailer take them away -- without explanation -- the next time you try to shop there. This real-life nightmare is currently playing out for CinemaNow customers, who watched helplessly as thousands of dollars disappeared from their accounts last weekend.
While there wasn't a huge amount of tech news over the weekend aside from an Evernote security scare, we've managed to dig up a heaping handful of tidbits for you, including a look at Apple's Lighting Digital AV Adapter and future Campus 2 headquarters, as well as missing store credit for CinemaNow customers and more. Won't you join us for a quick Monday morning catch-up?
We don't know if there's anything hotter in the hopper than the Frys.com iPhone 5 deal we posted earlier today.

Find out about this and more inside.
With fears of a Mayan apocalypse behind us, we can now get back to our hopes and dreams for the future -- such as an iTunes Match-like service to convert our DVDs into a cloud-based movie library. (It's not here quite yet, but CinemaNow has something pretty close.)
