MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's competition regulator on Sunday approved AT&T Inc's $1.7 billion purchase of local cellphone company Iusacell, with unspecified conditions, a statement said. The Federal Competition Commission said it set conditions on the deal to "avoid risks to the process of competition" in markets where Iusacell would compete with Carlos Slim's America Movil, which previously counted AT&T as a minority investor. America Movil is Mexico's biggest mobile operator, while Iusacell is a distant third. ...
In 2016, a rearview mirror with a video display built-in will be a standard option on the Cadillac CT6, the carmaker's upcoming flagship sedan. With the wide-angle video feed enabled, the "mirror" will offer a field of view up to four times greater than that of a standard mirror, according to GM.

We've got to be honest: we don't really know much about the plot of the upcoming Final Fantasy XV, but we're irresistibly drawn to the idea of a road trip movie in a fantasy world.

It's official: Saturday Night Live has spoofed a podcast, and, of course, it's none other than the hugely popular Serial. Fortunately, the skit is up there with some of the finest work to come out of this uneven season. Cecily Strong pulls off a pitch-perfect Sarah Koenig who's moved past true crime to answer some age-old mysteries about Santa Claus. The Christmas connection is probably the weakest link here, but did you ever think a podcast would be big enough to be parodied on SNL?
By Steve Holland and Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama moved to prevent U.S. anger at North Korea from spiraling out of control on Sunday by saying the massive hacking of Sony Pictures was not an act of war but instead was cyber-vandalism. Washington's longstanding dispute with North Korea, which for years has centered on its nuclear weapons program, has entered new territory with the accusation that Pyongyang carried out an assault on a major Hollywood entertainment company. ...
Dish customers are in the midst of another channel blackout — hardly an unusual occurrence for the feisty satellite TV provider. This time it's Fox News Channel and Fox Business that are missing from your lineup. The two channels went dark last night as both sides, Dish and 21st Century Fox, failed to come to terms and renew their contract.
