Memorial Service Held for First U.S. Ebola Victim — Family and friends of Thomas Eric Duncan, the first and so far only person to die of Ebola in the U.S., gathered Saturday for an emotional memorial service in North Carolina. Mourners celebrated the 42-year-old's life at Rowan International Church in Salisbury, where his sister, mother and nephew worship, according to NBC affiliate WCNC.

Catholic Bishops Approve Revised Report on Gays — VATICAN CITY (AP) - Catholic bishops on Saturday approved a revised document laying out the church's position on gays, sex, marriage and divorce, saying the report was a "balanced" reflection of church teaching and pastoral needs.

The Revolutionary New Feature Apple Didn't Talk About — Apple unveiled a pair of new iPads during a somewhat subdued event Thursday at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters.

Apple iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3, iMac Retina: Hands-On — There were three big dates on Apple's calendar this year. The first was June's WWDC, where it presented iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, the second was a surprise event last month that presented us with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch.

Here’s Why Netflix Can Shrug Off its Stock Plunge — It's not every day that a brand-name stock loses a quarter of its value in a matter of minutes, as Netflix did after reporting its financial earnings Wednesday. It's even rarer when executives respond as if it's no big thing. After Wednesday's stock market close, Netflix reported a net profit that exceeded Wall Street's expectations.

Apple iPad New Version Rumors and a Look Back at First iPad — With Apple rumored to be unveiling a new iPad Thursday at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters, it's a great time to look back at the company's very first tablet - which, notably, was also the last new Apple device presented by late CEO Steve Jobs, who passed away within 2 years of the iPad announcement.

That Adorable Dog in the Sink Doesn't Have Ebola — We finally have good news about Ebola: That adorable dog in the sink you saw on Twitter Wednesday doesn't have the disease. In fact, the pup isn't even in quarantine, as this tweet suggests: How do I know that? Because that dog can't possibly be Bentley, the dog that belongs to a Texas nurse recently diagnosed with Ebola.
