In the past, this would have meant going to the cinema but the arrival of online streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu means that it’s now easier to arrange some movie magic at home at the time of your choosing.

What movie should you choose to hit the perfect mood? ExpressVPN’s infographic for Valentine’s Day uses a clever flowchart design to help you decide.

These are unique digital assets that can be bought and sold using the blockchain, with the record sale currently over $69 million for a collage of Mike “Beeple” Winklemann’s images.
