Steve Jobs on medical leave, Verizon iPhone reviews and DC Universe Online.

Jan. 18, 2011— -- Apple COO Tim Cook will run the company's day-day operations while Steve Jobs is on medical leave. Jobs, who has battled cancer before, announced Monday he needs to focus on his health. He did not provide details on his medical condition.

Verizon iPhone Reviews

The Consumer Reports Electronics blog calls the new Verizon iPhone "middle aged."

The blog suggests that potential buyers consider waiting for something more up-to-date. Consumer Reports also gave the AT&T iPhone 4 poor reviews.

Superhero Dreams

DC Universe Online is now in stores. It lets one or more players enter the world of Batman and Superman.

CNET's Dan Ackerman says you can't actually become these famous superheroes but it sure comes close.

"You have to create your own superhero or supervillain and work with those really well-known comic book characters who are going to basically give you assignments and then you and your friends can team up and take out bad guys or rob a bank if you are a bad guy," said Ackerman.

Ackerman added that it's a fun action game for groups but beginner players might find it tough to understand.
