Today's top stories...

Flaw puts Windows PCs at risk
Yesterday, Microsoft released an emergency security patch for Windows. The flaw allows hackers to take over a machine remotely. It has been used in fewer than 100 targeted attacks. XP is most at risk.

MySpace, Indie labels kiss and make up
Indie labels and MySpace are reaching agreements. The indies were angered when MySpace launched a new service. The big guys got equity in the service. Selling your music online? My column will help!

Newspaper site growth not enough
Traffic to newspaper sites grew 16 percent in the third quarter. Newspapers averaged more than 68 million visitors. Still, this is not enough to offset declines in print revenue.

Doctors create 3-D model of heart
Doctors have created a new model of the human heart. The 3-D model realistically recreates heart rhythms. And the model can be customized. It should improve training and patient care.

Sony’s stock drops on revised earnings
Sony revised its profit outlook for the fiscal year. It said profits would decline 59 percent from the previous year. Its stock tumbled. This is just one more sign of the worsening economy. I predict TV prices will fall!

Teen allegedly behind Jobs rumor
A false report that Steve Jobs had a heart attack appeared recently. It was allegedly posted by an 18-year-old. The SEC is investigating. It may not prosecute unless the teen had a financial motive.

Woman arrested for virtual murder
A woman killed her husband after he divorced her. The murder, like the marriage, was virtual. Still, the woman was arrested for the computer crime. She could get five years. Is this fair? Hit my Message Board.

Tough times? I have help

The economy is sliding, and taking some of my listeners with it. A lot of people are interested in making money on the Internet. They want to save money, too.

I've got a bunch of ideas on my new Money Center. For instance, I have links to many free programs. Whatever you need to do, you should find a free program. I've got free coupons, and lots of other free stuff.

Want some extra cash? I have many links to legitimate opportunities. Unlike the offers in spam, these have been vetted. They're Kim safe!
