Bill Cosby Case To Consider Broken-Agreement Question

Entertainer Bill Cosby heads to court on Tuesday in what is expected to be the first of many attempts by his attorneys to derail his sexual assault criminal charges.

Rubik's Cube-Solving Robot Set To Break Guinness World Record

Some Kansas City software developers built what they believe is the world's fastest Rubik's Cube-solving robot. They built it in their spare time, partly because one of the guys wanted something to do with his new 3-D printer. Their machine can sort out a scrambled Rubik's Cube in just a little over one second. That's much faster than the second fastest robot and not quite five times faster than the quickest "human speed solver." A judge from the Guinness Book of World Records will judge the robot.
