How did your wireless carrier rank in Consumer Reports' annual survey?  It seems Verizon earned the highest overall rating.  Top marks also went to AT&T for its 4G reliability and last place went to Sprint.

Gamers were standing in line again overnight.  This time they were waiting for Microsoft's new Xbox One to be released at midnight.  The console is marketed as a multi-media device.  In case you are hoping to get your hands on one, you should know that they retail for $500.

This holiday season, it seems Black Friday bargains aren't confined to just one day.  Walmart is among the big retailers starting Black Friday today.  That's one week ahead of the actual Black Friday.  Loyal customers at Sears and Kmart will also be able to start getting some special discounts today.

If you're a sports fan, there's an app you are going to want to download.  It's called "Sports Center" and it's new from ESPN.  It replaces ESPN's "Score Center," which is the most popular free sports app of all time.
