  • Millions of Apple users can now sue Google for its Safari hack

    Millions of Apple Safari users in Britain have been given the green light to sue Google amidst proven allegations that the search giant implemented a workaround to bypass Safari security and install tracking cookies on both desktop and iOS versions of Apple’s web browser. Why? Because over 90% of Google’s ad revenue comes from advertising and they wanted to deliver higher-cost targeted advertising to OS X and iOS users.

  • Sorry, George R.R. Martin, you're wrong: spoilers are important

    Game of Thrones is a singular case in pop culture. In other cases, such as The Walking Dead, the show has so little to do with the source material that it's irrelevant. Game of Thrones, the show, seeks to be a mostly faithtful adaptation of the books, but Martin is an author that famously releases new books when they're done ... and not a moment before. Fans of the property have to make some hard, and kind of weird, decisions: Do they wait for the books, or watch the television show as it's released?

  • JetBlue Pilot Who Caused Flight Diversion Sues Airline

    Clayton Osbon, 52, filed his suit three days after the crash of Germanwings Flight 9525, which has raised concerns about pilots’ mentally stability. He said JetBlue’s failure to ground him before the flight caused him public embarrassment and the loss of his career and reputation. “JetBlue failed to make any effort to ensure that Captain Osbon was fit to fly despite clear evidence and warning signs that he required immediate medical attention,” according to a complaint filed Friday in Manhattan federal court. Morgan Johnston, a spokesman for Long Island City, New York-based JetBlue, declined to comment on Osbon’s claims.

  • 2015 NFL mock draft: Malcom Brown to San Francisco 49ers at No. 15

    How will a crazy offseason in San Francisco affect what the 49ers do with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft? Speaking of Fooch: he's also here to make a first-round pick for the 49ers in our 2015 NFL mock draft.

  • 'Unholy alliance' of Islamists threatens Sweden: spy chief

    By Alistair Scrutton STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden, once cited by Osama bin Laden as the kind of country al Qaeda did not attack, is facing a rising threat from Islamist militants because of the crises in Iraq and Syria, its spy chief said in an interview on Friday. Anders Thornberg told Reuters the number of Swedes traveling to fight in those countries had tripled in the past year, and record immigration to the Nordic country was making it vulnerable to infiltrators from militant groups. Expanding on comments in the security services' annual report last week, he also said Russian espionage had stepped up since the Ukraine crisis: one in three Russian diplomats in Sweden were operating as spies, and there were signs of "war planning" from Moscow to test the country's defenses. Sweden's traditional neutrality was long seen as shielding it from militant threats, as acknowledged by al Qaeda leader bin Laden in a speech in 2004.

  • The Five Words I’ll Never Say to My Children Again

    “When a mom says, ‘Don’t make me tell Daddy’ or ‘Wait until Daddy gets home,’ the child concludes that the father is the source of power, the one who wields justice, who enforces right and wrong,” Laura Markham, Ph.D., a child psychologist and author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids, tells Yahoo Parenting. “You’re teaching your kids that their father is to be feared and their mother is not in charge—we don’t really have to care what Mom thinks, except in so far as she will tattle on us.”  Not good for mom and not fair to dad.

  • Can an Abortion Be Undone?

    Women who opt to get an abortion in Arizona within their first two months of pregnancy may soon find themselves on the receiving end of some unusual advice from their doctors. A medical abortion, which works within the first nine weeks or so of gestation, involves taking two pills within a few days of each other. This week Arizona lawmakers passed a bill that would require doctors who perform such abortions to tell their patients that if they reconsidered their abortion after taking their first pill, they should return to the doctor for a procedure that can allegedly "reverse" the abortion. "This is a great day for women in Arizona who are considering getting an abortion to get all the facts they need and a great day for Arizona taxpayers," Cathi Herrod, president of the Center for Arizona Policy, a conservative group that backed the bill, told Reuters.

  • Mercedes to build world's first premium pick-up

    The German luxury brand says that it plans to enter the market by 2017 and that its first pick-up will take styling cues from its SUV range and comfort cues from its existing executive sedans. Mercedes says that the decision to move into the mid-size pick-up market, currently dominated by US brands, is because of a huge shift in recent years -- from commercial to personal use and from wanting something that is utilitarian to wanting a vehicle that's as comfortable and refined as it is practical. "We can perfectly serve customers looking for a vehicle that offers a high level of utility and at the same time has the comfort, safety, and design of a Mercedes-Benz passenger car," said Volker Mornhinweg, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans.
