NEW YORK (AP) -- It's nervous time for subscribers of T-Mobile. Hackers have gotten their e-mitts on personal information belonging to about 15 million T-Mobile wireless customers. The data theft may even include those who may have applied to get a phone plan or financing of a device through the company. That's because the hackers got into the database of credit reporting agency Experian -- which T-Mobile uses to check the credit of those applying for its service. The swiped data includes Social Security numbers, home addresses, birthdates and other personal information. The breach affects T-Mobile customers who applied between Sept. 1, 2013 and Sept. 16, 2015. T-Mobile users can sign up for two free years of credit monitoring service. The bad news about that? That service is owned by Experian. T-Mobile says it's trying to get an alternate monitoring service lined up as soon as possible.
IN THE NEWS: AMAZON TO STOP SELLING APPLE TV AND GOOGLE CHROMECAST
NEW YORK (AP) -- Amazon is playing hardball in the video stream arena. The online retailer says it will stop selling Google and Apple video-streaming devices. The reason: it wants to boost the profile of its own Prime Instant Video streaming service. Amazon has made Prime Video a big part of its Prime loyalty membership program. But neither Apple TV nor Chromecast work with Prime Video -- so Amazon is pulling the plug on them. No immediate response from Google and Apple on the Amazon move.
