Stolen Target credit cards flood black market

Millions of the stolen credit cards snatched from Target shoppers in recent weeks are being sold on the black market, it's reported, amid some banks holding off freezing potentially compromised accounts out of uncertainty around the extent of the issue. Target admitted earlier this week that around 40m customers had potentially been affected by credit and debit card thefts in stores between November 27th and December 15th; now, new research indicates many of those cards have ended up being sold online, with the banks that issued them either unaware or reluctant to cancel them so close to the holidays.

First-generation iPad trade in plan offered by Target

The original iPad is getting rather long in the tooth these days having been on the market for three years. The first-generation iPad has been around long enough that most trade-in programs giving owners money to apply towards a newer tablet or other device offer very little cash for the first-generation iPad.
