The father of a teenager who was portrayed online as being connected to the Boston Marathon bombings has a message for the news media: "When they put something, they should be sure about the information." The father of Salah Eddin Barhoum spoke out after his son said he's afraid to go outside after his photos were posted online as possible suspects in Monday's blast. His photo was also plastered on the front page of the New York Post. It turns out the Barhoum and a friend weren't considered suspects -- and the FBI has since identified two others as suspects. But Barhoum says he's convinced that some will blame him for the deadly bombing, no matter what.
Viacom's lawsuit against
is failing to gain any legal traction. For the second time in three years, a federal judge has kicked the lawsuit, saying the online video site doesn't have to police itself against people posting copyrighted video clips. The judge ruled that as long as the site removes videos when copyright owners object, YouTube is in the clear. As part of the ruling, a judge in New York says Viacom never proved YouTube was aware of thousands of videos Viacom said were stolen from its TV networks such as Comedy Central and BET. Viacom isn't letting the issue die there; it says it will appeal.
is trying to make some of its more popular services a little more appealing to the eye. The site features upgrades to its weather and mail apps. For example, the weather app for Apple's iPhone will still provide temperatures and forecasts -- but will superimpose them over slideshows of landmarks and scenes in the city chosen. Yahoo has also cranked out a mail application for the Apple iPad and other tablets that run Google's Android software.
