General Motors is issuing another recall involving 1.5 million vehicles.  This time it's for airbag and brake issues.  Last month, GM recalled almost 1.6 million vehicles for defective ignition switches.  GM's CEO Mary Barra says something went terribly wrong at the company.  She's now promising to fix the safety defects and the company's response to them.

You'll soon have a new place to trade in your used video games.  Starting next week, Walmart will let shoppers trade in used video games at more than 3,000 stores.  You'll receive gift cards that can be used in stores and online.  And there's another first for Walmart - the stores will sell refurbished used games.
