I’m not even sure I know the words for this, but you know that long, long, long-running suit the Winklevoss brothers filed against Facebook and founder Mark Zuckerberg?

The one they settled like two days ago? Yeah, well, they’ve filed another one accusing Zuckerberg of suppressing evidence in the prior case. Offered without comment.

Also, from the world of online hacking, Electronic Arts is the latest game company to be hacked.

And in somewhat more serious news, the hacker group Lulzsec says its has hacked into the files of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
