The government is expected to announce a billion dollar settlement with Toyota today.  The issue is whether or not the company misled regulators about what it knew about cars that suddenly sped up.  Under this settlement, the automaker will avoid criminal charges.

If you've ever been frustrated by trying to solve the Rubik's cube, you might not want to hear this. A new world record has been set for solving it.  A Lego robot named "Cube Storm Three" completed the puzzle in a little more than three seconds! It happened at the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham, England.

Corn dog lovers may be surprised by the size and price of one being sold at the Arizona Diamondbacks stadium this season.  The "D-Bat Dog," as it's called, is 18 inches long and sells for $25!  It's stuffed with cheddar cheese, jalapeno and bacon. It also comes with fries.
