(CBS) - In Business News, airlines are rolling out new fees, but this time, you just might like them.

A corporate identity and brand consulting firm puts the Apple name's value at more than $98 billion dollars.

Google jumped to number 2 with a global brand value of more than $93 billion, pushing Coca-Cola to the number 3 slot.  



(CBS) - Ikea wants to help you make your home "green".

The Swedish furniture company started selling residential solar panels at its stores in England today.
