Obama's Cell Hacked

Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it only resulted in paid leave for some Verizon Wireless employees. In a press release last night, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam announced that employees had "accessed and viewed" Barack Obama's personal cellphone account, which was inactive. The accessed device was a regular flip-phone, so no emails or other data was involved. According to the release, those "employees with legitimate business needs for access will be returned to their positions," while others will join the ranks of the recently unemployed. "We apologize to President-Elect Obama and will work to keep the trust our customers place in us every day," McAdam said in a statement.
