Video: Net Neutrality, Celebrity Geek Hobbies, Secure Payments

This Week In 60 Seconds delves into the FCC’s net neutrality vote, reveals secret nerdy hobbies of the stars, and checks the state of secure payment systems.

Start your weekend with our video news roundup. We look at the reaction to the FCC’s vote to reclassify broadband Internet as a telecommunications service, and thus open it to new government rules.

On the lighter side, we share a slideshow that peeks at nerdy hobbies of famous people, including Vin Diesel’s love for Dungeons and Dragons.

Finally, we review efforts to make retail transactions more secure, including Apple Pay and EMV (chip and PIN).
