An arrest has been made in connection with the Target credit data breach.  A couple from Mexico was detained while trying to cross into the United States.  They were caught with 96 credit cards with cloned account information.  The suspects charged tens of thousands of dollars, buying high end items at several retailers.  The purchases were made using account numbers from people in south Texas.  That has investigators believing that the stolen information is being sold regionally.

Apple has been offering in-store screen repairs for iPhone 5 since June. Today. it begins offering the same service for iPhone 5C.  The procedure takes about an hour and costs $150.  So far, the in-store service is not available for the 5S or for older 4S models.

Get ready for the latest food war.  This one is waging in the multi-billion dollar Greek yogurt industry.  In one new ad, Yoplait goes head-to-head with best seller Chobani, claiming its product tastes better. Dannon is also getting in on it.  The company says it will launch a new ad during the Super Bowl.
