While many feel the online TV service Aereo would shake up the moribund broadcast industry, it's more likely that if the company wins its case at the Supreme Court, consumers would face an even more fragmented TV landscape.

There’s a new dating website in town. This one doesn’t care if you like brunettes, how often you shower, or if you would ever have sex on a first date. Instead, it wants to know what you like in a portfolio. 

I think I'll stick with OkCupid.

J.K. Rowling says she made a mistake in matching Hermione with Ron. The real mistake? Making the choice either/or. 

I defend my nerdy, kick-ass witch hero and make the case that Hermione didn't need a marriage for a happy ending:
It's sad that the choice for Hermione Granger had to be either Harry OR Ron.

"Unless the issues that BitCoin raises are addressed in a thoughtful and proactive manner by existing authorities, the disintermediating power of technology is likely to have a disruptive impact on currency systems and those that regulate and rely on them."
Digital currencies are a threat to current financial systems, say Alec Ross and Jonathan Luff.
