    You can order Girl Scout cookies online, but there’s a catch

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) – Girl Scout cookie fans can finally order their Samoas online, but it looks like the scouts could still learn a thing or two from Amazon. Customers can’t just go to the Girl Scouts web site and click the buy button. They’ll still have to interact with a Girl Scout at some point in the process … or at the very least, one of her parents. All Girl Scout cookies have to be ordered through the organization’s […]

    Republicans respond to President Obama’s State of the Union address

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — The race for the next U.S. president was evident on Tuesday night as plenty of potential Republican contenders criticizing President Barack Obama’s tax proposals, while Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, defended the President’s State of the Union address. Mitt Romney took to Facebook to argue that Obama was dismissing the message that voters sent to Washington when they voted for a Republican majority in November. “He ignores the fact that the country has elected a Congress that favors […]

    President Obama: “The state of the union is strong”

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Barack Obama made a feisty pitch for economic populism in his penultimate State of the Union Tuesday night, touting the improving economy on his watch and making the case that government has a role in ensuring equal opportunity for all. Obama began his speech at 9:10 p.m. in front of a joint session of the House and Senate, declaring that “the shadow of crisis has passed, and the state of the union is strong.” “At this […]

    Facebook wants to crack down on fake news articles

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Facebook wants to crack down on the scourge of fake news stories that go viral on the social network. You’ve seen them in your feed: false reports of celebrity deaths, conspiracy theories presented as real news, promises of free iPads if you share a link, quotes attributed to the Pope that he never said. Facebook hasn’t hired a team of dedicated fact checkers to read every article. Instead, it’s outsourcing the task to community members with […]

    Sony’s ‘The Interview’ tops $40 million

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Remember when “The Interview” was almost scrapped by Sony Pictures? Well in little less than a month, the film has hauled in $40 million through on-demand rentals and another $6 million in theaters. The production budget was about $44 million — so the movie studio can now celebrate that it’s surpassed that total. But it still has a ways to go. Sony has to split the revenue from rentals and ticket sales with the distributors. Furthermore, […]

    Walmart customers can pick up their 2015 tax refunds in cash

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Walmart customers can collect their tax refunds in cash at stores this tax season. The service is an alternative for taxpayers who otherwise might get refunds via check or direct deposit. Walmart says it won’t charge customers any fee to pick up the cash at its stores, but that tax preparers may charge up to $7 to arrange the payment. Walmart will certainly benefit from having customers in the store with a fresh infusion of cash. “It’s always […]

    10 things to expect from Windows 10

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Microsoft is planning to lift the curtain a bit higher on Windows 10. The company has already shown a handful of features in September. Most of those new bells and whistles were aimed at people who use Windows at work. On Wednesday, Microsoft is expected to give a consumer preview off its Windows 10, or in its own words: “a glimpse at what’s to come from the world’s most-used operating system.” Here are 10 things to […]

    President Obama heads into State of the Union on ratings uptick

    Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama heads into Tuesday’s State of the Union address riding the first uptick in his approval ratings in years, but he’ll be speaking to a room full of more Republicans than Democrats for the first time, providing for a new dynamic in the annual ritual. Fifty percent say they approve of the job Obama’s doing as president, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released on Monday. That’s the best Obama’s fared since the spring of […]

    (CNN) — The militant group ISIS has threatened to kill two Japanese hostages unless Tokyo hands over $200 million within 72 hours. In a video posted online Tuesday, a masked man clad in black and holding a knife stands over two kneeling men in orange jumpsuits against the backdrop of a barren landscape. The masked man links the threat against the two men’s lives to Japan’s support for the U.S.-led coalition that’s fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria. “Although you […]

    Alabama man ticketed for eating while driving near Atlanta

    An Alabama man is in shock after he says a police officer in Georgia gave him a ticket last week.  The charge? Eating while driving. Thousands of people do it every day around the metro Atlanta area.  But a man from Alabama says taking a big bite out of that burger is exactly what got him in trouble with Cobb County Police after he went through a McDonalds drive-through on Canton Road on his way to visit a friend. “The […]
