Exclusive: FBI warns healthcare sector vulnerable to cyber attacks
By Jim Finkle BOSTON (Reuters) - The FBI has warned healthcare providers their cybersecurity systems are lax compared to other sectors, making them vulnerable to attacks by hackers searching for Americans' personal medical records and health insurance data. Health data is far more valuable to hackers on the black market than credit card numbers because it tends to contain details that can be used to access bank accounts or obtain prescriptions for controlled substances. "The healthcare industry is not as resilient to cyber intrusions compared to the financial and retail sectors, therefore the possibility of increased cyber intrusions is likely," the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a private notice it has been distributing to healthcare providers, obtained by Reuters.

Amazon's eroding tax advantage, bid to sustain growth in focus in first quarter

AT&T margin weakness fuels concern about U.S. cellular sector
By Marina Lopes NEW YORK (Reuters) - Increasingly aggressive discounting is taking a toll on AT&T Inc and U.S. cellular rivals as they struggle to attract customers in a nearly saturated market. While recent price cuts by AT&T led to a surge in first-quarter subscriber adds that beat Wall Street expectations, average revenue per user fell, triggering a 3.2 percent share drop. Other wireless carriers' shares also declined, with T-Mobile US Inc, which has roiled the industry with a series of discounts and new pricing plans, down 2.8 percent. AT&T's result and the share fallout is the latest sign of how U.S. cellular phone providers, once seen as companies with strong growth potential, are having to resort to discounting in a bid to retain or lure clients.

Facebook gets U.S. antitrust approval to buy Oculus
Social network giant Facebook Inc has won U.S. antitrust approval to buy Oculus VR Inc, a two-year-old maker of virtual reality goggles, the Federal Trade Commission said on Wednesday. Facebook said on March 25 that it planned to buy Oculus for $2 billion in its first-ever hardware deal. Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said at the time that the proposed transaction reflected his company's desire to bet on "the platforms of tomorrow." The deal was on a list of several proposed transactions that have been cleared by the U.S. Department of Justice and FTC. The Oculus buy was one of several high-profile purchases by Facebook, which recently won antitrust approval to acquire Whatsapp, an instant messaging service for smartphones, for $19 billion.

IBM unveils new server model to tackle big data, analytics

The POWER8 servers, the product of a $2.4 billion, three-year investment, are part of the company's decade-long shift to higher-value hardware technology. IBM said the machines are 50 times faster than the low-end x86-based servers it sold to Chinese PC maker Lenovo Group Ltd in January. "For IBM customers in particular the POWER8 represents a generational jump forward so far as overall performance and system capacity goes," said Charles King, an analyst at Pund-IT in California.

U.S. regulators to propose new net neutrality rules in May
By Alina Selyukh WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. regulators are expected to vote on May 15 on a new set of so-called "net neutrality" rules aimed at making certain that broadband providers do not slow down or block consumers' access to legal Internet content. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler on Wednesday said he plans to circulate his proposed rules among other commissioners on Thursday, teeing them up for a vote at the FCC's May 15 meeting. The rules are expected to ensure that network operators disclose exactly how they manage Internet traffic and do not restrict consumers as they surf the Web. Wheeler has in the past indicated that the new net neutrality rules were not expected to address the issue of interconnection, or agreements in which content companies pay network providers for faster access to their sites or services.

The case was Paroline vs. United States, in which a woman, "Amy," sued a Texas man named Doyle Paroline for possessing two images of her being raped when she was 8 and 9 years old. A federal judge ruled that Paroline was not liable for Amy's restitution because there was no proof he contributed to her abuse, but a federal appeals court judge decided the opposite way and ordered Paroline to pay $3.4 million.
