Apple remains the No. 1 device manufacturer in Millennial Media's advertising network with a 25% share.


"Bankruptcy" is a popular search topic today after a study showed that the number of Americans aged 65 and older declaring bankruptcy is on the rise.

The study conducted by John Pottow, a law professor at the University of Michigan Law School, showed that by 2007, 7% of those filing for bankruptcy were 65 or older, up from 4% in 2001.

Professor Pottow said that more than 66% of those 65 and older who filed for bankruptcy blamed credit cards for their financial problems. "They're using credit cards as a maladaptive coping mechanism," Pottow said.

The research also showed that about 40% of adults were still struggling with medical bills after they filed for bankruptcy.
