  1. AT&T security breach exposes iPad 3G customer data (updated 2x) [ZDNet] “AT&T and Apple have suffered a major privacy breach, exposing the email addresses and ICC-IDs of over 114,000 iPad 3G customers — possibly many more.”
  2. US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Wall St trims losses after consumer data [Reuters] “U.S. stocks trimmed losses on Friday after data showed consumer sentiment improved in early June to its strongest level in nearly 2-1/2 years.”
  3. Twitter All Set to Monetize With Smallthought Buy, URL Shortener Launch, “You Both Follow” Feature [SearchEngineWatch] “Is Twitter readying to serve search marketing to brands and businesses? At least, it very much has the look and feel of it, as the micro-blogging site has acquired analytics company Smallthought Systems”
  4. Google’s Caffeine: a Transition From Months to Seconds [PCWorld] “Newshounds and marketers may still debate whether Google’s Caffeine, which now delivers search results from updated sites within seconds, is fast enough. But it wasn’t too long ago that it was acceptable for Google to update its index only once every 30 days.”
  5. Microsoft Security Vulnerability Disclosed [InformationWeek] “Microsoft was left racing to patch a Windows Help and Support Center vulnerability after Tavis Ormandy, an information security researcher who’s charged with keeping Google’s products secure, Thursday publicly disclosed both the bug as well as proof-of-concept attack code.”
