There have been claims circulating that the quake in Chile has affected the Earth's speed and axis of rotation; other, probably more accurate, reports have suggested that the Earth's precessional wobble has been altered.

What's the correct story?

For anyone who is interested, Dr Dave discussed the Chilean quake and its impact on Earth's rotation in a recent episode of Ask the Naked Scientists - http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/podcasts/ask-tns/
