Court Rules In Iceland's Favor Over Icesave Controversy
Icelanders have a reason to smile today. Icelanders have long been known as a clever and happy race, but today the volcano-dotted nation will host even more smiles than usual: A European court has ruled that Iceland hasn't broken the law by refusing to compensate for U.K.- and Holland-based deposits in "Icesave" accounts, after the collapse of the Landsbanki Islands bank. It also ruled that Iceland hadn't discriminated between its own and foreign depositors in the scandal. This means Icela...

Barnes & Noble To Shutter One-Third Of Retail Stores Over The Next 10 Years
Barnes & Noble has put up an excellent fight over the past few years against the rising tide of digital competitors like iPad, Kindle Fire, etc. But it would seem that the bookseller has still come up a bit short, as the Wall Street Journal reports that the company has plans to shut down nearly 20 stores per year over the course of the next decade.

SAG Awards 2013 Winners: 'Argo' Takes Top Prize; Is Best Picture Oscar Next?
Is "Argo" now the Oscar frontrunner for Best Picture? It certainly looks that way after the film won the top prize at the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night. This would be an impressive feat for the film, considering its director, Ben Affleck, got snubbed from the Academy Award nominations for Best Director earlier this month (the last film to come away with the Best Picture Oscar without a Best Director nominee was "Driving Miss Daisy" in 1989). "I am really amazed and stun...
