On this note, I just got an alert from Gmail stating that my email was accessed from China (4 hours ago). Apparently this is relatively common. Nothing appeared to have changed, and I don't think there was any important information within the account. Both POP and IMAP access were enabled. Weird.

if you have an account w/ gawker or any of its subsidiary sites (kotaku, gizmodo, lifehacker, etc) their entire database of over 1.3 million users was cracked a few days ago. They have email addresses, usernames, passwords, etc. People who use the same name/password on multiple sites are getting hacked right and left.

M3post emailed me both times and gave me their IP addresses. What is Gawker? I dont have an account but I'll check and see what other accounts got hacked. Thanks.

Not much you can do other than change your password regularly.
