Today's top stories...

Google raises privacy fears
Google frequently launches services that gather personal information. This has privacy advocates worried. Users don’t know what Google does with the information. Nor do they have control over it.

Yahoo! gears up for election traffic
Election Day typically drives traffic to Yahoo!’s Web site. Last year, the site had 80 million page views on Election Day. Yahoo! expects this number to double or even triple this year.

Violent games, violent kids
A study shows violent video games increase violence in children. Younger children are most susceptible. Previous studies did not offer conclusive proof. So, check these family-friendly video games.

Wecorl exploits Windows flaw
Remember Microsoft's recent emergency security patch? The Wecorl worm exploits it. Wecorl can circumvent some firewall configurations. It installs a Trojan and a rootkit. Be sure you’re patched!

Firefox hits new high
Firefox’s market share broke 20 percent in October. However, it slid to 19.97 percent at month’s end. Firefox’s growth comes at the expense of Internet Explorer. IE’s market share is 71.3 percent.

Windows shows strong growth
Critics can say what they will about Vista. But it is driving Windows’ market share. For the second time in three months, Windows usage has grown. About 20 percent of Web surfers use Vista.

Putting an end to wrap rage
Hard plastic packaging has caused much wrap rage. Stores are paying attention. Amazon has launched a “Frustration-Free Packaging” initiative. Tell your wrap rage story on my Message Board!

Video of the Day: Manipulating computers with thought has always seemed a reach. But as this video shows, it is rapidly nearing a reality.

Cool Site of the Day: You may watch the election returns tonight. But you don't have to depend on TV. Most networks have election sites.

Digital Minute, on your radio: Many people are using sites like eBay to make extra income. It's a great idea. But I have a word of warning.

Free Download of the Day: Cable and satellite aren’t the only sources for television. Favorite shows are available online, too. And they're free.

Tip on the site: You're on a plane. The guy next to you won't shut up. So, you don noise-canceling headphones. Better, you listen to music.

There's more below, but first a word from us...
