Priciest ever Super Bowl ads sell out
The Super Bowl has never been a cheap place to advertise, but this year it's setting a record.
Even at the game's highest rates ever, CBS has sold out of commercial time.
The average 30-second spot in the Feb. 3 game has sold for an average of $3.7 million to $3.8 million,
with a few spots going for "well over $4 million," CBS Corp.
Looking forward to some of these pricey ads

January 20, 2013, 6:22 amDucks Hammer Canucks
VANCOUVER - It didn't take long for the Vancouver Canucks' goaltending
controversy to heat up again.
Cory Schneider, the netminder tagged as the club's new starter, allowed
five goals on 14 shots before getting the hook Saturday as the Canucks
suffered an embarrassing 7-3 season-opening loss at the hands of the Anaheim Ducks.
"It doesn't matter what market I was in," Schneider said of being in the spotlight.
"If I played this way, it would be unacceptable anywhere in the world. So I'm not
too concerned about where I am right now."
Schneider was pulled in favour of former No. 1 goalie Roberto Luongo after allowing
a trio of goals — including two in 11 seconds — just over three minutes apart early in the second period.
"I've learned that, in a market like this, you have to be accountable and responsible, and you
have to perform well in the crease," said Schneider, who signed a three-year contract extension
in the off-season. "Tonight, I didn't perform well in the crease."

From now on, thoughts will cost a nickel
A box full of shiny pennies at Northgate Stamp and Coin in Edmonton, May 4, 2012. The last penny was struck Friday at the Canadian Mint because it is being eliminated. Pennies aren't worth much. Even a 1859 one only goes for a few dollars. The exception is a 1936 Canadian penny with a raised dot under the date fetches around $360,000 to $400,000.
April 29, 2012, 12:08 pmYou are being watched
"You are being watched. The government has a secret system: a machine that spies on you every hour of every day.
I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror, but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like you.
Crimes the government considered irrelevant. They wouldn't act, so I decided I would. But I needed a partner, someone with the skills to intervene.
Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You'll never find us, but victim or perpetrator, if your number's up...we'll find you."
April 1, 2012, 12:12 pmManitoba kitten wins $1M lotto jackpot
A kitten hailing from Brandon, Manitoba has been awarded a $1 million grand prize by
the Manitoba Lotteries Corporation in a charity lottery event.
With equal parts embarrassment and amazement, MLC spokesperson Marlene McPherson presented Snowflake—an 11-month old Balinese kitten—with a novelty-sized
cheque made out to the sum of one million dollars late Friday afternoon.
Snowflake's owner, Margery Kemp, was on-hand to accept the prize money on behalf of her feline companion.
Kemp, 52, had purchased two tickets for the Manitoba Heart and Life Charity Lottery three weeks prior to the draw.
Like most ticket purchasers, Kemp wrote off the tickets as nothing more than charitable donations and playfully registered one of the tickets
under her new kitten's name.
About three weeks later, a ticket registered to ‘Snowflake Kemp' was randomly selected in the grand prize draw.
"Can you believe it? My cat is actually going to be taking care of me," joked Kemp. "Let's just say Snowflake will be getting only the finest cat food from here on in. I owe her big time."
As bizarre as the situation sounds, MLC lawyers insist that the kitten is lawfully entitled to the prize money.
"Manitoba's laws pertaining to lotto winnings are pretty clear," says Andrew Chow, a senior legal consultant for the MLC.
"The ticket registrant, unless deceased, is the one who gets the money."
For its part, the MLC will be conducting an overhaul of the terms and conditions of its lottery services and products. While Snowflake's bizarre win will
go down in lottery history books, it is certainly a case no lotto corporation would like to repeat.
~ Happy April Fools!

Apple spends some of its $98B cash hoard
Computer maker to pay $2.65 a share quarterly and spend $10B buying up shares
Apple Inc. is finally putting its cash hoard to work, introducing a quarterly dividend of $2.65 US a share
and starting a $10 billion share buyback program.
Apple says the dividend will start in its fiscal fourth quarter, which begins July 1.
The buybacks will begin in its next fiscal year, which starts Sept. 30.
Apple is sitting on $97.6 billion in cash and securities. For years, it has resisted calls to reward
shareholders with some of that money.
Since the death of CEO Steve Jobs, management has signaled that it's been considering options for the money.
“Combining dividends, share repurchases, and cash used to net-share-settle vesting RSUs, we anticipate utilizing
approximately $45 billion of domestic cash in the first three years of our programs,” said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO. “We are extremely confident in our future and see tremendous opportunities ahead.”
The expectation of a dividend has already helped send the stock up 37 per cent since Apple's latest earnings report.
In pre-market trading, the shares touched a record level of $600.23, up 2.5 per cent from Friday's close.

February 6, 2012, 11:53 amMan wins $50,000 on Tom Brady's safety
A safety is a rare play in any game, but for it to happen in the Super Bowl as the first score of the game?
No one would expect that to happen. No one would lay a bet on something so unlikely, right?
Wrong. Jona Rechnitz bet $1,000 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas that the first score of the game would be a Giants safety.
With 50-to-1 odds on such an unlikely score, Rechnitz is walking away from Las Vegas with a $50,000 pay day.
The safety came when New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was flagged for intentional grounding from his own end zone,
giving the New York Giants two points. Brady's lapse in judgment started the game off on the wrong foot for New England, and
gave Rechnitz a cool $50K. Do you think he'll send Brady a thank you note?
