  • Here's how you can watch the presidential debates online

    YouTube announced that it will offer a live stream of the presidential debates leading up to the 2012 election. That means you can see President Barack Obama go toe to toe with Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney four times during October before citizens take to the polls on November 2.

    Usually, the debates are only shown during prime time on major U.S. television networks. YouTube's partnership with ABC News is just one way that people can stay involved and informed during the campaign and election process. The YouTube Election Hub will also offer commentary and analysis from its other partners, including Al Jazeera English, The New York Times, and BuzzFeed.

    While this is a great way to bring the debates to a wider audience, we've seen other attempts at livestreaming go awry due to copyright issues. The Democratic National Convention was just one of the recent events where video was taken down because a news agency claimed copyright over some of the material, and a political

  • Think you're safe? You'll want to think again after hackers breach 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

    When it comes to home security, few — if any — places in the world are safer than the White House. But, as it turns out, even the office and residence of the president of the United States of America needs to step up its computer security. It turns out that one of the building's computers fell victim to a cyberattack originating in China last week, although it appears that no sensitive information was actually stolen.

    The attack was made against a single computer in the White House Military Office. It came in the form of "spear phishing," where an email purporting to be official contains links to — or attachments containing — malware. It's not clear whether White House personnel were actually fooled by the email, but a spokesperson told Politico that the system affected didn't contain any sensitive or classified information.

    This breach of the White House's computer security should serve as a reminder that no one is immune to high-tech criminal activity. Now's as good a time as any to

  • Adidas tests life-size virtual mannequins to dress and pose while you shop

    Window shopping has just been redefined by Adidas with the rollout of its new interactive storefront window. The window is a fully functional touchscreen that lets you drag life-size products directly to your smartphone, which acts as a shopping cart. With the security of a one-time PIN, each shopping session is linked in real time to the display window. As with most online shopping carts, you can save products for later, edit product details, and even share your purchase with friends over social media or email.

    This isn't the first time Adidas has looked to virtual wall technology for shoppers, but this interactive storefront also lets you play dress-up with a life-size mannequin, complete with product details and action poses. But before you run out to your local Adidas store to play Barbie with its virtual mannequins, note that this service is currently only available in Nürnberg, Germany as a six-week pilot test.

  • Serena continues mastery of Sharapova for magical 19th

    By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - A sickly Serena Williams gave Maria Sharapova another serving of grand slam heartbreak on Saturday to win the Australian Open and bolster her claims to be the all-time greatest player with her 19th major title. Though wheezing, coughing and forced off court to be sick during a rain-break, Williams's serve stayed in the rudest of health and her athleticism astonished in a nerve-shredding 6-3 7-6(5) victory under the lights of Rod Laver Arena. In sealing her sixth title at Melbourne Park, Williams surpassed Martina Navratilova, the woman who handed her the trophy, and Chris Evert in grand slam title wins, while drawing level with fellow American Helen Wills Moody, third in the all-time list.

  • Mayweather dampens hopes for Pacquiao fight
    Mayweather dampens hopes for Pacquiao fight

    Unbeaten fighter Floyd Mayweather dampened talk of a possible mega-fight agreement with Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, a day after the Asian star's promoter said a deal was near. Mayweather posted a message on his Shots account that said in part "While they continue to lie about making the fight... I'm just going to continue to travel and explore the world on my private jet. Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum told the New York Post on Friday that he was optimistic a Pacquiao-Mayweather deal for a May 2 fight in Las Vegas would be completed in the next couple of days, with only a few final details to be settled between rival telecasters HBO and Showtime, the rights holders for Pacquiao and Mayweather respectively. Mayweather, who turns 38 on February 24, left England's Amir Khan hanging for months until announcing on his birthday last year that he would fight Argentina's Marcos Maidana instead.

    Super Bowl Sunday kicks off with scandal and spectacle

    The Super Bowl kicks off Sunday as American football seeks to put a scandal-plagued season behind it, with this year's spectacle featuring a Katy Perry concert, ultra-expensive commercials and a compelling clash between Seattle and New England. The extravaganza is expected to draw a whopping 115 million viewers -- or about one in three Americans -- and amounts to an unofficial holiday in the United States, where even those with no interest in the sport gather at countless Super Bowl parties. This year's championship comes with the National Football League battling back from a season of turmoil, accused of complacency and even conspiracy in its handling of issues ranging from domestic violence to concussion dangers. The latest controversy -- accusations that the New England Patriots intentionally deflated footballs -- has dominated news coverage in the days leading up to the game.

  • Tennis-Djokovic grinds Murray down to win Australian Open

    * Djokovic claims his fifth Australian Open title * Murray suffers third final defeat to Serb at Melbourne Park (Adds quotes) By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE, Feb 1 (Reuters) - Novak Djokovic ground down Andy Murray 7-6(5) 6-7(4) 6-3 6-0 on Sunday to win a record fifth Australian Open title in the professional era and consign the Scot to further grand slam pain Down Under. The pair waged a fierce baseline duel for the opening two sets, but after taking a 2-0 lead in the third set, Murray crumbled under the Serb's pressure to lose 12 of the last 13 games as Djokovic closed out an emphatic win under the lights of Rod Laver Arena. Top seed Djokovic sealed the victory on the second match-point, rushing to the net with a searing approach shot that Murray could only dump into the net. You are a great competitor," Djokovic, clasping the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup, said at the trophy ceremony.

    Cavs star Love makes triumphant Minnesota return

    Kevin Love scored 14 points and grabbed a game-high 17 rebounds in his triumphant return to Minnesota as the Cleveland Cavaliers ripped the Timberwolves 106-90 for their 10th consecutive NBA victory. Star forward Love had made it clear he wanted to leave Minnesota and he was traded to Cleveland last August in a three-team deal that helped give the Cavaliers the support needed to become a contender after the signing of four-time NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James.
