NEW YORK â¿¿ Women of America, are you leaning in? Sheryl Sandberg's book urging women to "lean in" to their careers, rather than step back, came out last month to a huge burst of publicity and hearty sales. But the Facebook COO is hoping to create not just a best seller but also a movement. We look at one of the self-organized "Lean In" circles organized by a group of professional women in New York. By National Writer Jocelyn Noveck.

NEW YORK â¿¿ I've seen Android phones get better and more powerful over the years, as Google and phone manufacturers pack devices with more and more features. There comes a time, though, when less is more. I'm afraid we've reached that time. By Anick Jesdanun.



NEW YORK â¿¿ The BlackBerry has finally caught up to the world of touch-screen smartphones. It took time â¿¿ six years, from the launch of the first iPhone â¿¿ and it may be too late to save the company that makes it. But the BlackBerry deserves to be taken seriously again. By Peter Svensson

Zombie stories never have happy endings. So when the heroes of 2011's "Dead Island" made it out alive, you knew there had to be a catch. The catch is that any video game that isn't a complete flop gets a follow-up these days. And as "Dead Island Riptide" (Deep Silver, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, $49.99; PC, $39.99) begins, the zombie virus has infected the ship that rescued the survivors â¿¿ and they soon wash up on another undead-infested tropical paradise, called Palanai.
