        There is a huge difference between an emoticon sad face and a real sad face. Expressing a real sadness is always more satisfying than expressing something with an icon.
        It's time to pony up for prepaid iPhones, avoid password scams and quit your mayor obsession already. I’m Bridget Carey and this is your CNET update.
        It's confirmed that iPhone is coming to Virgin Mobile at the end of June. But you have to drop a hefty 650 bucks to get the 4s. And that's because since there's no two-year contract. Plans start at $30 a month. And if you do the Mac, it's technically cheaper in the long run than spending $200 in being tied into more expensive monthly bill for 2 years. But you’ll get less talk minutes. Virgin uses the Sprint network.
        And if Android is more your style, Samsung's flagship phone, the Galaxy S III, will soon be available on all carriers. Expect this to be a hot seller. It's coming to Sprint, AT&T Mobile on June 21st. For rising AT&T, Sprint’s already begun taking pre-orders this week. It will come in white and blue and this summer, AT&T will be selling a red version.
        There have been several password security breaches this week. After LinkedIn confirmed that hackers compromised users’ passwords, eHarmony sends an alert that many of its user passwords were also hacked. Anyone who has been compromised will have their passwords reset and will be prompted to create a new one.
         But that's not all, even the music service Last.fm has also recommended that its users should change passwords after discovering some passwords have been leaked.
        With all this news of passwords being exposed, some seriously shady websites have popped up. Stay away from websites that ask you to enter your password to see if you've been hacked. I'm seeing these problems on social networks. Even if you think it's trustworthy, do not give some random website your password to check anything - just change it yourself to be safe.
        And the biggest danger with password security breaches is that hackers will try your password on several sites -- like trying a key in many locks to see how many it they can open. So make your passwords different for any site that stores personal information. If it's a word in the dictionary, it's really easy to crack. If you want something memorable and complicated, abbreviate a song lyric or phrase, and spice it up with some numbers and upper and lower case characters.
        And today's app to watch is Foursquare. It’s just got an overhaul in design and functionality. The focus is shifting away from the race for points, badges and getting crowned mayor of the coffee shop. It's more about discovering new places and reading recommendations from other users. At the center is the Explore button which pinpoints the places that were near you have a bargain or special, and which are popular at the moment on Foursquare. Users can also like in comment on other check-ins.
        That's your tech news update for today. For more on stories in today’s show, visit CNET.com/update from our studios in New York. I’m Bridge Carey.
