Bob Iger, Media Mogul — Subscriber content preview. or Sign In After a decade of running Walt Disney Co., CEO and chairman Bob Iger shows no signs of flagging.

Metal Shards in Food Are Not Uncommon — Kraft Foods is recalling 242,000 cases of its Macaroni & Cheese product because "metal shards" have been found in some boxes. The recall is getting lots of attention both because of the size of the recall and because the product is so popular.

Season 5 Episode 14 Spend — "Spend," episode 14 of the fifth season of The Walking Dead , doesn't skimp on the gore. Perhaps the title is a nod to what the producers anticipated having to do to pull off so many stomach-churning (also, stomach-dismembering) visual effects. Or perhaps it's a nod to the writers' willingness to let blood toward the end of a season.

Meet Lei Jun, China’s Phone King — Subscriber content preview. or Sign In Far from a household name in the U.S., Xiaomi is China's top smartphone maker, valued at $46 billion.

Use a Dollar Bill to Choose Your Size — Apple's "Spring Forward" event on Monday answered a lot of questions about the company's upcoming smartwatch.

Apple Reveals More Apple Watch Details — Apple gave more details about its upcoming wearable computer, the Apple Watch, at a press briefing in San Francisco Monday. Some six months after unveiling the device, CEO Tim Cook filled in many of the blanks such as how much various versions will cost and how long the built-in battery will last.

Apple Introduces 12-Inch Retina MacBook — Apple today unveiled a svelte new addition to its lineup of laptops: the new MacBook. At a press briefing in San Francisco, the electronics giant introduced the long-anticipated update to its MacBook Air line. CEO Tim Cook touted the device's light weight-2 lbs.-and thin enclosure.

Everything the World Knows So Far — The Apple Watch is arguably the company's biggest launch in years. The upcoming wearable, expected to go on sale in April, is the first all-new product category for Apple since the introduction of the iPad in 2010. Some six months after unveiling the device, CEO Time Cook is getting ready to take the stage and give the world more details.

Season 5 Episode 13 Forget — Should I stay, or should I go? That's the essential question the main characters are asking themselves as season five of The Walking Dead begins to wind down. Episode 13, "Forget," finds the members of Rick's group trying to acclimate to their new, uber-normal surroundings in a self-sustaining suburb of Alexandria, Virginia. Lets You Configure Apple Watch — Apple's smartwatch is nearing launch. More information about the device is likely to be revealed on Monday, March 9, during a press event. Details have trickled out slowly since the Watch's unveiling last year. CEO Tim Cook has reportedly said he thinks it could possibly replace your keys, for example.
