REAL star of the royal wedding

BRITAIN: Kate Middleton's brother recited Bible passage off by heart to overcome dyslexia

Kate Middleton wasn't the only one who spent a sleepless night worrying about their words in Westminster Abbey on the day of the Royal Wedding .

"It has emerged that James Middleton, Kate's younger brother, had to learn the reading he delivered in the church off by heart in an effort to overcome his dyslexia," reprots Daily Mail.

"James, who read an extract from Romans 12, knew that if he looked down to read from the Bible, his dyslexia could have caused him to jumble up the words," said the paper.

James delivered a 'word-perfect' version at last month's wedding, which was watched by two billion people around the world.

Any mistake would have lingered in the memory of viewers since it was the only reading at the wedding and was delivered soon after Kate and William had exchanged vows, said the paper.

James is a successful entrepreneur who has never let his dyslexia hold him back in life.
 
Facebook may have leaked personal info: report

Bangalore: Facebook users' personal information could have been accidentally leaked to third parties, in particular advertisers, over the past few years, according to Symantec Corp's official web blog.

Third-parties would have had access to personal information such as profiles, photographs and chat, and could have had the ability to post messages, Symantec's web blog said.

"We estimate that as of April 2011, close to 100,000 applications were enabling this leakage," the blog post said.

" ... Over the years, hundreds of thousands of applications may have inadvertently leaked millions of access tokens to third parties," posing a security threat, the blog said.

The third-parties may not have realized their ability to access the information, the blog post said.

Facebook was notified of this issue and has confirmed the leakage, the post said.

The blog also said Facebook, the world's largest social networking website, has taken steps to resolve the issue.

Facebook was not immediately available for comment.

Facebook has more than 500 million users and is challenging Google Inc and Yahoo Inc for users' time online and for advertising dollars.
