BusinessWeek found out that When the World Cup Is On, Stock Markets Go Quiet. Saumya Vaishampayan at MarketWatch wrote, “Chilean traders basically stop trading during Chilean World Cup games.” Matthew Levine from Bloomberg View called it “Good analysis of the quality of England's World Cup teams.” Tom Gara at the Wall Street Journal added some numbers, “In the last World Cup, trading on the Chilean stock market dropped by 99.5% when Chile was playing.”

After a week of buzz, TechCrunch’s Mike Butcher writes that Yo App Was Allegedly Hacked By College Students. Melissa Martin from the Winnipeg Free Press wrote, “Their mistake was trying to own ‘yo.’ They cannot own ‘yo,’ it must stay open and free to all, like the moon.”
