Yahoo's email service outage, or what has come to be known on Twitter as #YahooMailFail, is entering its fifth day and continues to keep some users from accessing their messages. The company said Thursday that it has restored access to email for 97% of the affected users. It said it was able to deliver 80% of the messages those users missed during the outage, which began late Monday night. By now, those figures have likely improved, but many users are still tweeting that they cannot access their accounts.

After the coffee. Before pitching my young-adult novel.  The Skinny: I saw "Catching Fire" on Saturday and enjoyed it, though I set a high bar for dystopian fiction. Oh, and for the sake of self-promotion, I'm writing the weekly box-office projections now, so watch out for that. Monday's stories include the box-office wrap-up, Katie Couric's latest career move and the two Hercules movies coming out next year.  Daily Dose: The possible courting of Time Warner Cable by Comcast and Charter Communications could mean another squaring off between media moguls Brian Roberts and John Malone.

Is Katie Couric cutting the TV cord? Yahoo officially announced Monday that Couric is joining its ranks as its “global anchor.” After more than three decades on the air as a journalist and talk show hostess, the 56-year-old will now add Internet explorer to her resume, helping to develop global coverage for Yahoo. As part of her new position, which is still being defined, Couric will conduct monthly interview series and serve as the “face" of  Yahoo News. The confirmation comes after word leaked late last week that she'd be jumping ship from ABC News for more digital pastures.

Well, that was fast. Katie Couric is on the move again - and her daily talk show is evidently headed for the skids.  The veteran newswoman is about to join Yahoo in an "extensive deal," according to the Hollywood Reporter. Details weren't reported, but Couric already repurposes bits from her talk show for a feature on Yahoo News.  The latest development will likely mean curtains for her talk show, "Katie," which has struggled in the ratings over the last two seasons. It's also the end of Couric's ties to ABC News.

We're only five days into the charity 'stache-growing season and the Movember movement, now in its 10th year, seems to be sprouting up all over the place, from the "Today" show anchor desk to 7 For All Mankind Kind jeans to the Internet -- where Yahoo is reporting a huge spike in searches for both "Movember" and the phrase "No Shave November. " Last year a bunch of guys at the offices of L.A.-based premium denim brand 7 For All Mankind (including, we're told, the brand's president, Barry Miguel)

WASHINGTON -- The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting Internet data -- almost certainly including American email traffic -- as it transits to Google and Yahoo servers abroad, according to the latest disclosure from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden . The documents, reported by the Washington Post , describe a project code-named MUSCULAR, a cooperative effort with the agency's British counterpart, GCHQ. Even though NSA has been obtaining data directly from Google and Yahoo with court orders through the previously disclosed PRISM program , the new documents show it also has been taking data without permission abroad, outside the oversight of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Alabama Coach Nick Saban addressed the Yahoo allegations that one of his star former players, D.J. Fluker, received impermissible benefits while attending college. Saban on the Yahoo article: “I didn't read the article, I just came from practice. I know [Alabama Athletic Director Bill Battle] has already made comment on the story. I will say from an administrative standpoint, our people do a fantastic job. I think we have one of the best programs in what we try to do to help our players make good choices and good decisions when it comes to agents.
