There's another high-profile computer breach you need to know about.  StubHub is the latest victim to be hit by a massive international cyber fraud ring.  Cyber thieves hacked into accounts of more than one thousand customers and purchased tickets through the online ticket re-seller.  Arrests are expected in this case later today.  

There's a new faulty ignition recall to tell you about. Nearly 800,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Commanders made from 2005 - 2007 are being recalled.  The ignitions could disengage, shutting off the engine and disabling the air bags.  Chrysler is in the process of notifying owners.
 
Orange Juice may be good for you. but its popularity seems to be on the decline. During the past decade, sales of OJ were down 38 percent.  According to analysts, some of the reasons for that decline include higher prices and health-conscious consumers who are looking for lower sugar alternatives.
 
Here's something new for Target shoppers.  The discount department chain is set to debut a new shopping app this month.  It's called "in snap."  It lets users buy items after scanning magazine ads with their smart phones.  It's free to download, but keep in mind it is still in the test mode stage.
