IN THE NEWS: iPHONE SALES
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Apple' profit picture is brighter these days -- due to the success of its recently released, larger iPhones. The company reports that it moved more than 39 million iPhones in the last quarter -- a record for that July through September period. The success in iPhone sales helped make up for sales of Apple's iPad tablets -- which have been disappointing. Apple said iPhone sales rose 21 percent over the same period a year earlier. By contrast, iPad revenue fell 14 percent.
AP correspondent Diane Kepley reports there is mixed news for Apple products in the third quarter of the year.

Lewinsky says it's time for society to fight back against those who use online postings to tear down people. She says there is a "compassion deficit" that needs to be reversed -- to keep the Internet from being blamed for teen suicides and celebrity exploitation.
