The hacker group LulzSec, known for attacking the websites of government offices and security agencies, has announced that it will halt its operations. With its ‘final letter’ the group released internal documents from AT&T, including user names and passwords. Global law enforcement has been pressuring the hackers for some time. In other news, the Obama administration recently announced a $70 million robotics initiative. The money will be used for the research and development of robots that could work cooperatively with people. NASA, the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health are backing the program. And finally, California’s Supreme Court is about to rule on a case that would make it illegal to sell ‘mature’ rated games to anyone under the age of 18. The industry is currently responsible for self-regulation, and developers feel the law would liken videogames to pornography, instead of an R-Rated movie.
