Then, Netflix plans to stream some of its shows, including Breaking Bad and Orange is the New Black, in 4K Ultra HD. But not a lot of people have the ability to watch ultra HD right now.

Also, a famous baseball player dies of cancer from chewing tobacco. We look at the smokeless tobacco industry, where sales are up
