It wasn’t long for the long arm of the law to start busting these hackers that have been running amok all over the web and now in Britain a Facebook hacker has been arrested and is about to extradited to the US.

China has now turned into the official Soviet Union Lite as it has taken up the mantle of shifting responsibility for everything to someone else as long as it’s bad news.

An entertaining survey about Facebook came out last week and the findings are sure to raise an eyebrow or two.

Other startling findings by the study are that information about sex is shared 90% more than the average post. Also, Facebook relationships are happier than single people relationships.

Hackers again have wreaked havoc as it’s reported they’ve broken into none other than the top secret Lockheed Martin that is the manufacturer of US military weapons.

The inside story of Sony Corp’s war with hackers is coming out and it looks like the war is nowhere near over.
It is now known that Sony had been under threats and attacks for years. They’ve been the target of the group Anonymous, a loose group of terrorist hackers that have been wreaking havoc against corporations, governments, and religions.
