Business News: Most flyers don't want cell phone ban lifted

(CBS) - It looks like most Americans just want peace and quiet in the sky.

The Federal Communications Commission begins debate today on lifting the ban that prohibits the use of cell phones on airplanes.

But according to a new Associated Press poll, almost half of Americans are against the proposed change.

In another study, even younger folks agree, 52 percent of people 18 to 29-years-old prefer no cell phones in the air. 

(CBS) - It's going to be a busy day on Wall Street.

There are two Initial Public Offerings and starting today, you can own a piece of food services company Aramark and Hilton.

The hotel company is checking back in with wall street after 6 years, that's when it went private.

Shares are priced at $20 dollars valuing the company at more than $19 billion dollars.

Hilton will be the biggest hotel IPO in history and could be the second biggest IPO this year.

Even bigger than twitter.

(CNN) - Facebook "likes" the S&P 500.

The social networking site is going to join the benchmark index later this month, according to Standard and Poor's.

Joining the S&P 500 club brings Facebook a bigger investor base and a validation in the business world, which also makes it easier for people to get a piece of the company.

Shares of Facebook increased a little more than four percent on Wednesday.

(CBS) -  Bob Barker, come on down.

"The Price is Right" has been honoring the legendary game show host all week.

Today he'll be back for the second time since retiring 6 years ago, to celebrate his 90th birthday and even present a special showcase.
