Google launched a website dedicated to providing information for the 2012 U.S. elections. If you visit google.com/elections you can find articles sorted by candidates, issues and trends. The site also provides links to the 2012 political calendar and YouTube’s politics channel which curates election coverage. In other news, British Police believe that several newspapers hacked into potentially hundreds of email accounts including Gordon Brown, during his tenure as finance minister. The Scotland Yard police headquarters is investigating newspapers for potentially hiring private detectives to access peoples’ computers. And finally, despite more people activating Android phones, over 52% of mobile Web browsing is done on an iOS device. Even if you take iPads out of the equation, Apple has nearly 10% more people using iOS to browse the web. However, Apple’s success in mobile browsing has yet to translate to the PC.
