This holiday season was a good one for Amazon.  The online giant sold almost 37-million items on Cyber Monday.  That's an average of 426 a second!

Fords is set to show off its re-designed pickup at next month's Detroit Auto Show.  Reports are it will be made of military-grade aluminum.

On Saturday, more than one million out of work Americans who have been unemployed for more than 26 weeks will lose their benefits.  An emergency program put in place five years ago had been paying for the benefits.  Despite intense political wrangling, Congress failed to renew the program.

For about two hours Thursday, Delta airlines was offering super cheap airfares.  It wasn't intentional.  A computer glitch is to blame.  Good news for those who took advantage of the deals -- Delta says it will honor the incorrect prices.
