Tech Bytes: Amazon's delivery warning

In today's tech bytes... Amazon's delivery warning.

The company is urging customers to pick up packages at its brick-and-mortar stores -  instead of getting them delivered to your door. The company says the goal is to keep the holiday season "spoiler free." But the move will also benefit Amazon -- reducing deliveries while online orders surge amid the pandemic.

Twitter is expanding its warning labels. The site has been flagging election-related tweets with disputed information as "potentially misleading." Now, Twitter is expanding on that idea, by showing users a warning if they try to 'like' a labeled tweet.

And a copy of Super Mario Brothers 3 now holds the title of most expensive video game ever. The cartridge recently sold at auction for $156,000. That beat the short- lived record held by a copy of Super Mario Brothers that sold for $114,000 in July.
