Google+ is opening its door to teenagers. If you’re between 13 to 18 years old, Google+ will provide certain safety measures to prevent you from over-sharing your information. The precautions include warning messages about posting publicly and preventing strangers from joining video hangouts. In other news, while AT&T added over 700,000 new subscribers in the fourth quarter of last year, it still suffered tremendous losses. The company took a huge hit following its failed merger with T-Mobile. After a $4 billion break-up fee, AT&T ended up losing $6.7 billion last quarter. And finally, Nintendo’s newest game system, the Wii U, will be released in time for the 2012 holiday season. Once the king of videogames, Nintendo is really struggling to keep up with its competition. The company said it expects to post a loss of over $800 million by March.
