China is denying an Australian media report that hackers in Beijing stole top secret documents from Canberra. The ABC program alleged that hackers breached the Prime Minister's office and cabinet, as well as the Departments of Foreign Affairs and Defense. It also claimed that a cyberattack from a server in China stole blueprints to the new headquarters of Australia's top intelligence organization. Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard describes the report as "inaccurate". And a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman says the allegations are, quote, "a baseless accusation".

Mercedes-Benz is taking steps to help emergency responders rescue accident victims. The luxury car maker is putting high tech barcodes in its vehicles. Paramedics and firefighters will be able to use their smart phones to read the codes and find the best way to rescue injured people from damaged cars. The codes will include information how to pry the vehicle apart and reach an accident victim.

Daft Punk has set another record on Spotify. The music streaming service says the French duo's new album had the biggest number of streams in its first week in the United States. Spotify isn't saying how many times "Random Access Memories" has been streamed, but it was more than the 8 million that set the previous mark. Daft Punk also set a Spotify record last month "Get Lucky" had the biggest streaming day for a single track in the U.S. and the United Kingdom.
