In the time-honored tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous, I recently entrusted my fate to a higher power ? specifically, to a new software program that shuts off my access to the Internet for a designated time. I finally had to acknowledge that I was helpless in the face of my addiction, which has had me, especially in recent weeks, tapping my e-mail "refresh" button like a lab rat trying to get cocaine. I know I'm not alone in my hardwired weakness for novelty. Yet while constantly seeking out new things was once a helpful instinct that alerted us to new foods, mates or danger, it's now a siren's call to being chronically overwhelmed.

Four months after Nick Adenhart's tragic death, a makeshift shrine to the fallen Angels right-hander continues to grow outside Angel Stadium. . . . "It's something that fans initiated," Angels spokesman Tim Mead says, "and it will stay as long as fans feel a need for it." . . . Adenhart and two friends were killed early April 9, only hours after Adenhart pitched six strong innings in an Angels loss, when their car was broadsided by an allegedly drunk driver. . . .

Housing prices are plummeting. Jobs are evaporating. And the economy, as a whole, is in free fall. But despite -- or perhaps because of -- such relentlessly bad news, there's an up side -- for daters, at least. Singles are wading into the online dating pool in record numbers, giving virtual matchmakers their best traffic figures in years -- and users even better odds for finding a snuggle buddy, a fling or the One.

A hacker Tuesday claimed to have stolen 50 gigabytes of information from 79 banks over the last three months. The hacker, whose Twitter handle is Reckz0r but who also goes by " Jeremy " according to a PasteBin post, posted a text file of his hacks that contained a portion of the data he claimed to have stolen -- enough, he said, to prove he isn't kidding. Within that text file are details from 1,700 individual Visa and MasterCard credit cards accounts, according to ZDNet . The details posted by Reckz0r includes people's names, card types and both their postal and email addresses.

Facebook is currently testing a video "Call" button for its Timeline profiles, giving more prominence to its little known Video Calling feature. The social network confirmed that the button is being tested on a few people's profiles, being placed under cover photos and in between the current "Message" and gear buttons. That location is a familiar spot for the "Call" buttonĀ since that's where it was previously located after Video Calling was launched by Facebook last summer, as can be seen on Facebook's page for the feature.

Dear Frank and Jamie: Would you mind putting off all the ugly accusations, recriminations and posturing by attack-dog attorneys until after our team tries to win the World Series? We'd all appreciate it. Keep in mind who the other children of this divorce are. And, by the way, we don't want to have to go to two Dodger Stadiums when this is over. Dave Stuart, Westlake Village To all of you blue-clad visitors who tried to turn Petco Park into your house, don't expect any sympathy from Padres fans on the impending McCourt divorce.

Behaving like Scrooge is typically not the best way to win points with a date. But a new study concludes that many love seekers think savers are actually more attractive than spenders. Savers are viewed as having higher powers of self-control than their free-spending peers. That kind of discipline can extend into other areas as well, making life more pleasant for potential mates, the study said. For example, savers may also be more careful about exercising and watching their nutrition.

LinkedIn said it is working with the FBI to investigate a cyber attack in which 6.5 million of its users' passwords were stolen. The company told the Los Angeles Times that it is working with the federal agency after announcing on its blog that it was working with law enforcement to find more information about the recent hacking. Earlier Thursday, the business social network also told The Times that it had not verified any break-ins into its users' accounts, which it also announced later in a blog post . The company said that a total of 6.5 million passwords were stolen and published online but that only a small subset had been decoded successfully.
