What happened in the IT world this past weekend? Who knows, right? Hopefully you were too busy enjoying some downtime to care! Let us help you get back up to speed to start the work week with the most interesting IT stories from the weekend:

1. A South Carolina man was arrested after stealing 726 iPods and 49 HP laptops between April-May 2012. It is reported Todd Anthony Cofield Jr. stole over $160,000 worth of goods.

2. A recent study from the University of Salford in the UK said social media is making peoples’ lives worse and lowers self-esteem. Over two-thirds of the study’s participants said they have trouble sleeping after being on social networks and half feel uncomfortable when they can’t access their Facebook or e-mail.

3. Facebook apologized for accidentally deleting a post by the British non-profit company Article 19, which was a link to a Human Rights Watch report on Syrian torture centers. Facebook thought the post was offensive but admitted it was a mistake.
