UK police arrested 5 people from the group Anonymous, who are responsible for the DDoS attacks on behalf of WikiLeaks. Those arrested were male, age 15 to 26 years old, after almost a year of investigation. Following Julian Assange’s arrest last year, the group launched cyber attacks on several websites that restricted WikiLeaks from using its services. In other news, Microsoft’s second quarter earnings are in and they had a more profitable quarter than Apple. With $6.63 billion in profit, Microsoft surpassed Apple’s record profit of $6 billion. The growth is thanks to the holiday favorite Xbox Kinect and over 300 million copies sold of the Windows 7 operating system. And finally, News Corp will launch the digital publication The Daily on February 2nd, available on the iPad. The publication will cost 99 cents per week and is News Corp’s most recent effort to revive the newspaper industry. Will this tablet specific publication find the subscribers it’s looking for?
