Shipments of Galaxy S4 delayed

Sprint and T-Mobile are delaying shipments of Samsung's latest flagship phone, citing inventory issues. The delays in the Galaxy S4 appear to be the result of supply disruptions from Samsung, rather than heavier-than-expected demand.

Redesigned $100 bill to be ready in October

The Federal Reserve said Wednesday that it will begin circulating a redesigned $100 bill this fall, more than two years after its initial target. The Fed has set a new target date of Oct. 8. The redesigned note incorporates added security features, such as a blue, 3-D security ribbon and a disappearing Liberty Bell in an inkwell. Benjamin Franklin's portrait will remain on the $100 bill, the last note to undergo an extensive redesign aimed at thwarting counterfeiters with ever-more sophisticated copying machines.
