While the new Nikon D3400 kit options were straightforward, things are a bit more complicated in the new AF-P Nikon lenses. Two different lenses are available in two different options each, with and without VR. An interesting decision here, perhaps with an eye towards bundling them in different ways and discounting them? Regardless..
… the four new AF-P lenses are now available for pre-order as follows:
These have been added to the new Interesting New Lenses of 2016 tracking page. We no longer track most non-RAW P&S fixed lens digital cameras over there.

In an email probably written by a committee or by a high ranking executive who is out of touch with the plebs, Adobe is announcing that you can start another free trial of their Creative Cloud products, even if you had previously started free trials. Their email “explaining” this:
