Idaho man accused of using gun to force ‘moonwalk’
SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) – An Idaho man has been charged with assault after authorities say he ordered another man to perform the “moonwalk” at gunpoint.
The Bonner County Daily Bee (http://bit.ly/IGAoPn) reports 30-year-old John Ernest Cross was charged with the felony Tuesday in 1st District Court and appointed a public defender.
Police say they were called Monday to Cross’ home in Clark Fork after getting a report that he pointed a rifle at another man and demanded that the man perform the dance move popularized by Michael Jackson in the 1980s.
Investigators accuse Cross of using a semiautomatic rifle during the episode, but Cross claimed during his initial court appearance this week that the firearm was simply a pellet gun.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon say “I do” – again.
A publicist for the pair says they renewed their vows Friday at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.
Spokeswoman Cindi Berger said the couple celebrated with an “intimate ceremony after a romantic dinner at the beautiful Jules Verne restaurant” just after midnight local time.
Carey, 42, and Cannon, 31, married in the Bahamas in 2008 after a whirlwind romance that began just months earlier. Carey gave birth to their twins, son and daughter Moroccan and Monroe, last April.
Cannon was hospitalized in January and later diagnosed with inflammation of the kidneys. He resigned from his New York City radio show in February to help his recovery. Earlier this month, he said he’d document his return to health on his website in a show called “NCredible Health Hustle.”
The world’s largest technology company is planning to build a 21,468-square-foot eatery exclusively for Apple employees. It will be closed to the public. The idea behind the building is to create a space where workers can talk shop without fear of pesky competitors eavesdropping.
“We like to provide a level of security so that people and employees can feel very comfortable talking about their business, their research and whatever project they’re engineering without fear of competition overhearing their conversations,” said Dan Whisenhunt, director of real estate facilities, at a presentation to the Cupertino,

(CNN) — If you’re at a coffee shop, anywhere in Philadelphia, or if it’s late at night, hang on to your smartphone.
Losing your smartphone can be stressful, given how much important data and access to services a typical one contains. On average, people lose their smartphone once per year, according to Lookout Mobile Security.
Recently, Lookout analyzed phone loss data and found some interesting trends about where and when people lose their phones. This data is presented on a new interactive website, Mobile Lost and Found.
Lookout gathered data from its mobile security app, which is on more than 15 million cell phones around the world (mostly Android phones). In 2011, Lookout found 9 million smartphones. (The company considered a phone as having gone missing whenever a user logged in to Lookout via the Web to find a phone.)
“Losing your phone is absolutely the biggest mobile security risk cell phone owners currently face, even more than malware,” said Kevin Mahaffey, Lookout’s chief Read more
When Don Cornelius’ suicide became public, fans worldwide wondered why the “Soul Train” icon would take his own life. Now, his autopsy report reveals that illness pushed Cornelius over the edge, according to TMZ.
Since Cornelius suffered an aneurysm in 1997, seizures plagued him in later years. In the final six months of his life, though, the pain of his condition had become debilitating, causing Cornelius to fall in to a deep depression.

The autopsy report also reveals that Cornelius pulled the trigger from his left temple and the bullet exited his right temple. Oddly enough, there were also Read more
