WikiLeaks has begun publishing emails that it claims will expose dark secrets about the global security firm Stratfor. WikiLeaks is likening the private intelligence firm to a shadow CIA. But, Stratfor insists that the messages won’t expose anything close to a government conspiracy. In other news, a study by the journal Pediatrics found that active videogames like Wii Sports or Dance Dance Revolution don’t actually get kids exercising. The group of 9 to 12-year-olds handed active games didn’t exercise any more than those playing games with their thumbs. Turns out it’s not exercise if you don’t try. And finally, Netflix’s contract with Starz ends today, removing some of the service’s most popular content from its library. Starz provided television and movies from Sony and Disney like Toy Story 3 and Tangled. The companies aren’t expected to strike a new deal.
