Microsoft's Bill Gates and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg have contributed a combined $9 million dollars from their respective foundations to a Non-for-profit group that is working to improve connectivity in schools.

Paper copies of "Newsweek" will begin rolling off the presses next year.

The magazine stopped publishing print editions a year ago.

But now, the weekly printed version will be paid for by subscription fees instead of advertising.

Newsweek's editor expects the magazine will cost less than $10 dollars per issue.

Ford motor company is introducing the platform ahead of Mustang's 50th anniversary.

The Mustang GT will still have a 5.0-liter V8 engine, but with more power than the current version. 

A V6 engine version is also being offered for price-conscious buyers.
