Web Exclusive: Google pays a big fine over privacy

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - Google is paying a $17 million dollar fine to settle a privacy case involving people who used Safari web browsers in 2011 and 2012.

 
A loophole allowed Google's Double-Clik adverting network to follow safari users without their permission.  The fine will be divided between 37 states and the District of Columbia. 
 
There will be fewer fresh turkeys this Thanksgiving. Butterball, which sells one in every four turkeys for the holiday, says there is a shortage of fresh turkeys 16 pounds and larger.
The company isn't spelling out all the reasons for the shortage, but says if you can't find a fresh Butterball, there will be plenty of frozen birds to buy.
 
More of the victims of notorious ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff could get some of their investment money back. That's according to the Manhattan District Attorney's office. More than 10,000 so-called third party investors lost money that they invested with outside financial firms, which in turn invested with Madoff. Liquidation trustee Irving Picard had ruled these investors ineligible for compensation. But now they can submit claims to a separate fund controlled by a department of justice-appointed administrator. Madoff is serving a 150-year prison term for bilking investors out of roughly $17.5-billion dollars. The government has recovered almost $12-billion dollars of that money.
 
And BMW unveiled the newest generation of its iconic mini. It's been a popular brand for the company, with 285-thousand sold last year alone. The latest version is a more fuel efficient model and is scheduled to go on sale early next year. Prices will start at about $24-thousand dollars.
