1.5 million card numbers stolen

Culture
It's Monday, April 2, 2012. I'm Bridget Carey on CNET.com. And it's time to get loaded. More than 1.5 million Visa and Mastercard credit and debit card accounts may have had there information stolen. The 3rd party payments processor to Visa and Mastercard...a company called Global Payments. Held a press conference Monday to say the data have reach to it's system has been contained. And it doesn't believe any fraudulent charges have been made using those stolen numbers. And aside from the card numbers, the company reports no other personal data like names, address or social security numbers has been accessed. The payment processor also isn't giving any details about how...it could have happen because it says the investigation is ongoing. Visa has dropped Global Payments but it said it would work with a company in the future once the issue are resolved. The App...HBO GO is now available on more entertainment devices like the XBOX 360 and Roku. Problem is, not every cable provider is allowing customers to use that. HBO GO is a way for HBO subscribers to watch shows and movies on demand on different devices. It's already been on iPhones, iPads and Android devices and to access that users have to proved they pay for HBO through a cable provider. Mobile devices aren't a problem. But Comcast and Time Warner are not allowing HBO subscribers to use the App on the XBOX 360, Roku or...even a Samsung Smart TV. Seems like Comcast and Time Warner see viewing HBO on demand on another home theater device is a threat to it's own on demand offerings. Just when we thought the Angry Birds game couldn't possibly get any bigger. Now there's a cartoon series on the way and a movie. The widely popular game will become a weekly animated series of (shorts?) this fall with 53 episodes each lasting about 3 minutes and available on a variety of devices. The movie though won't be ready for a couple of years. You might have hear about an App called girls around me. It used public (4 square?) and facebook data to automatically pint point the location of woman on the map and this woman were not signed up for this App service. There is a public out cry over privacy and last week (4 square?) blocked the app from using it's location data. Now the (Russian?) (??) is being targeted on fairly as a escape goat for privacy issues. Does girls around me have a valid point. After all it was just showing woman who are ready publicly, published the location for anyone to see. But naturally people get (??) it out when information is using a way they didn't expect like an app that encourage people to find them and hit on them. Just another lesson in being careful about the information you share online. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Bridget Carey for CNET.com. And you just been loaded.
