News quiz: The week in tech

InfoWorld news quiz: Dec. 3, 2010: WikiLeaks makes secrets plain, Uncle Sam claims 80 domains

Read any good diplomatic cables lately? WikiLeaks dominated the news this week with the release of more than 250,000 classified State Department documents, and the fallout hasn't stopped since (turns out diplomats aren't as diplomatic as they seem). But that's not the only incident causing InterWebs outrage. A division of the Department of Homeland Security made headlines by grabbing the domains for more than 80 sites accused of piracy and counterfeiting, Google inched toward another major acquisition, Apple banned more apps from its iTunes Store, and Facebook moved one step closer to replacing the ballot box in American politics (talk about your worst nightmares). Can you vote your way to a perfect score? Give yourself 10 points every time you get one right. Now begin.

1. WikiLeaks found itself at the center of a Web maelstrom this week after it released the contents of thousands of diplomatic cables. Which of the following is not one of the revelations contained within the documents?

a. Afghanistan's vice president is a drug kingpin
b. China's government was behind the Google hack attacks
c. Russia's Vladimir Putin and Italy's Silvio Berlusconi are lovers
