Rupert Murdoch’s son James Murdoch agreed to the payment of $1.1 million to a victim of phone-hacking by the News Corp.-owned British tabloid News of the World, the paper’s current editor told a parliamentary committee in London, Bloomberg reports.

James Murdoch oversees European and Asian operations for News Corp., which also owns Fox. Rupert Murdoch has said he wasn’t aware of any payments to settle legal cases stemming from what was reported to be an extensive phone-hacking operation by the newspaper. The paper has denied the charges.

  1. Thanks for your visiting this http://www.watchau.com online store.

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
