While the tech world stands by for today's iPhone announcement, some unscrupulous hackers are taking advantage of the fact that we don't know exactly what the new phone looks like yet -- with a fake email, supposedly from Apple, announcing the "iPhone 5S." The email comes with an "order now" button that security experts say could lead to an infected computer.

Bank Teller Appreciation Week starts today.

************************************************













Tampa, FL. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers waited nearly eight years for a Monday Night Football game at Raymond James Stadium and the youngest team in the league was going to leave an impression.

So against the Indianapolis Colts, the baby Bucs proved they would grab, push, shove and fight.

And that was just what they did after the whistle.

Overcoming more than a football field in penalties, the Bucs also showed a sellout crowd and national television audience their will to win and flair for the dramatic.

Quarterback Josh Freeman extended all 6 feet, 6 inches of his body for a key first down and two plays later running back LeGarrette Blount exploded for a 35-yard touchdown run with 3:15 remaining in the game to give the Bucs a 24-17 win over the Peyton Manning-less Colts.

St Petersburg, FL. -- A big inning did in the Rays in Game 3 of the American League Division Series, as the Rangers took a 4-3 win Monday at Tropicana Field.

By losing, the Rays put themselves in the precarious position of having no room for error: one more loss to Texas and they will be eliminated from the postseason.
