The World Health Organization recently announced a tentative link between cellphone use and cancer. While numerous studies in the past have made the same claim, the W.H.O. is now classifying cellphones in the same category as gasoline and coffee. Will the new classification require government regulation? In other news, the Pentagon has officially recognized cyber-attacks on the United States by outside forces as an act of war. Until now, the government hasn’t had a formalized approach for combating the growing threat posed by hackers. Cyber-attacks will only be met with force if it produces damage equivalent to traditional attacks. And finally, videogame franchise Call of Duty is looking to change the way people play the game online. Activision is launching Call of Duty Elite, which combines its games with a unique social network. Starting this summer, players can form online communities, find friends to play with and compete for prizes.
