The holiday shopping deals continue today with Cyber Monday. It's basically a continuation of Black Friday’s increasingly online focus only with a slathering of old-timey sci-fi branding. As usual, we'll be rounding up the best deals all day long so keep it locked.

Having just spent a weekend with the four-part Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix, you'd better believe we've got something to say about the return of Rory, Lorelai, and pretty much the entire original ensemble. We'll also be sharing our thoughts on the “Marvelization” of Harry Potter in the new Fantastic Beasts.

And after suffering a two-month delay, Square Enix's Final Fantasy XV is finally getting a release on Tuesday. No doubt, Andrew Webster will have plenty to say about the game first announced as Final Fantasy Versus XIII over 10 years ago. We also plan to publish our This Is My Next pick for our favorite iOS and Android calendar apps this week.

We'll be looking at Audi's SmartFactory as well, featuring advanced ideas like modular assembly, VR, and metal 3D printing. And with any luck, you’ll also be treated to an interview with Aston Martin's chief creative officer Marek Reichman.

And that’s just a small taste of what's coming so be sure to follow The Verge everywhere we publish including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and even eMail by subscribing to our daily Command Line newsletter.
