Today's top stories...

Atlantic Records hits digital milestone
More than half of Atlantic Records’ sales come from digital products. No other record company can claim this. Unfortunately, overall sales are declining. So, the company is looking for new sources of income.

Get ready for Cyber Monday
Cyber Monday is the day following Thanksgiving weekend. Almost 84 percent of online stores are planning promotions. But weak sales are expected. Are you ready for Black Friday? My column can help!

Army to invest $50 million in video games
The U.S. Army will spend $50 million developing video games over five years. The games will be used for training and recruiting. The Army also plans to buy and modify a commercial game.

Job seekers flock to networking sites
Membership on professional networking sites is rising sharply. This is due to the weakened economy. Unemployment hit a new high in October. Job seekers say networking is essential in tough times.

Wikipedia’s medication information lacking
Researchers have found few errors in Wikipedia entries on medications. But, important information like side effects is often missing. Visit my site for a safer source of information on medication.

Used computers still being dumped
Demand for used computers in emerging markets is high. Yet, many used PCs still end up in landfills. Transportation costs and export fees are hampering recycling efforts.

Spam making a resurgence
Spam is rebounding after falling 75 percent. The decline followed the shutdown of hosting firm McColo on Nov. 11. Spammers may be using different botnets to send junk mail.

How do I look?
Researchers have developed software that improves one’s looks. It enhances photographs based on innate beauty preferences. Not everyone likes the changes. And some call the software unethical.

Let's all be thankful

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I have plenty to be thankful for, including my wonderful family. You along with my millions of listeners and readers make my dreams come true every day. I will always be thankful for your attention. Working with you has been my pleasure.

Since it's Thanksgiving, I've decided to give my great staff a break. Instead of going to the office, they're coming to my house. They will cook a huge meal, wait on me and then, wash my car! Naaah, that's a joke. They'll be off Thursday and Friday. So there won't be any daily newsletters. We'll be back at work on Saturday.

I hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. Let's be thankful for all the brave men and women at home and abroad who are at their posts to protect us. Enjoy your holiday, and thank you for letting me be a little part of your life again this year. And say a prayer for our troops who are in harm's way.

With love,
