There's some big news from Netflix. The company has struck a deal with Comcast to make sure its movies and television shows stream smoothly to Comcast customers.  This deal could also set the precedent for Netflix's dealings with other broadband providers.  The deal comes at a time when congestion is causing interruptions for customers trying to stream Netflix programming. That's a problem the company is hoping to eliminate.

Heads up for Apple users. The company is issuing a software update for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch after it was discovered that IOS 7 contains a serious security flaw.

Ben and Jerry's ice cream makes a big announcement today, releasing on Facebook and Twitter Sunday that it would be releasing some new flavors today.  The company switches up its menu about once a year.  The most recent new flavor was Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch.  It was inspired by Anchorman character Ron Burgundy.
