Yahoo is suing Facebook over patents, just weeks before the social-networking heavyweight is due to cash in with its initial public offering of stock.

Yahoo Inc. said in a court filing Monday that Facebook has infringed 10 of its patents covering advertising, privacy controls and social networking. Yahoo had threatened to sue Facebook last month, insisting that the social network license its patents. Facebook vowed to defend itself vigorously against what it called "puzzling actions" by Yahoo.

Yahoo fought PRISM, and PRISM won.

Court records obtained by The New York Times show that Yahoo had fought back against the National Security Agency's broad requests for user data in 2008. The company, which provides email service to hundreds of millions of people, argued that the order violated Yahoo account holders' constitutional right against unreasonable searches and seizures. The secret court didn't buy Yahoo's argument, and compelled the company to give the NSA digitally stored email and photos at its beck and call. Since the bombshell revelation of NSA's so-called PRISM program last week, the public has learned more about how the nine participating Internet companies let the government collect broad swaths of personal information from Internet users for national security purposes. The secret 2008 decision seemed to put a dark cloud over Silicon Valley: cooperate with the government to fight terrorism abroad, or you'll find yourself in court.

A Yahoo! News story published yesterday equates concerns about police brutality, the militarization of law enforcement and videotaping cops with wanting to carry out violent murders of police officers.

In a piece entitled Online rants, anti-government radicals fuel fear of U.S. cop killings, Senior National Reporter for Yahoo! Jason Sickles cites the murders of Las Vegas police officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo last month to make the case that there is "an exploding right-wing movement" which is "creating anxiety about attacks against police." Sickles notes that cop killer Jerad Miller posted of his intention to murder law enforcement officers on a Facebook page belonging to Cop Block, an organization that encourages citizens to document examples of police brutality. The fact that the organization has over 780,000 Facebook fans, all but one of whom have never murdered a police officer, doesn't prevent Sickles from honing in on the group as being partly responsible for the deaths of Beck and Soldo.

Like most children with a food allergy, Natalie Giorgi was raised with a keen understanding of how careful she had to be.

At 13, she knew that her peanut allergy could be deadly, and her parents were exceedingly cautious about what she ate. "She never put any dessert or anything that was questionable into her mouth without consulting someone," said Augusta Brothers, a family friend. But Friday night, years of caution couldn't save her.

Last year, Salem Ahmed bin Ali Jaber, a respected Muslim cleric in Yemen, gave a speech denouncing al Qaeda. Representatives from Al Qaeda came to speak with Jaber and his cousin in a private meeting.

During this meeting, they were all incinerated in a drone strike by the United States. The New York Times reported the death of these two innocent civilians in February in the context of discussing John Brennan's nomination to head the CIA. Yesterday President Barack Obama met with Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. According to Reuters, Obama praised Hadi's participation in the war on terrorism, while Hadi apparently appreciated Washington's help reducing the power and presence of al Qaeda. If there was an mention of innocents killed as collateral damage, Reuters made no note of it.

An ABC investigation has found what you might have suspected all along; if you leave your iPad with airport security, a TSA agent might just keep it for himself.

The investigators went to 10 airports and put iPads through the screening machines in the little plastic containers, and then didn't claim them just to see what would happen. Nine out of ten iPads were immediately returned to their owner, but as you'll see in the video below, one TSA dirtbag walked away with the iPad. ABC filmed the theft and traced the iPad to the home of the crook. You almost feel bad for the jerk who stole the iPad when Brian Ross shows up at his house. Then you remember that this criminal is also in charge of making sure your plane doesn't get bombed by a terrorist.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority was ordered by a Manhattan Federal Court to place "Anti-Jihad Savage" ads, starting early this week. The MTA had originally refused to accept the ads under their "No Demeaning Ad Standard" policy. After the ruling the MTA Spokesman said: "Our hands are tied." The ad copy states: "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."
