IN THE NEWS: CELEBRITY COUPLE WINS INTERNET FRIENDS
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello aren't the first celebrities to share a personal moment with fans online. After all, BeyoncT and Jay Z posted the first pictures of daughter Blue Ivy on their personal websites. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel used Instagram to share the first shots of their son, Silas. But the newlyweds might end up being the ones to tip the scales toward celebrities posting intimate images online -- instead of selling them off to celebrity magazines. Vergara shared 55 photos from her wedding to Manganiello on Instagram. And so far, fans are showering love on the couple. And some Hollywood types say other celebrities might start doing the same thing -- to make a closer connection with the public -- and to get more publicity than they might not have done otherwise.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Remember the massive hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment we found out about this time last year? Sony has been trying to make amends with those whose personal information may have been compromised. And now a federal judge has given preliminary approval to a settlement of up to $8 million between Sony Pictures and a group of its current and former employees. The judge has scheduled a final approval hearing for March. Under the deal, Sony agreed to reimburse workers up to $10,000 apiece for identity-theft losses and for things like credit-fraud protection services.
