10-year-old crashes mom’s SUV in attempt to buy herself fast food

A 10-year-old girl who allegedly stole her mother’s car to go to McDonald’s ended up getting lost on the way and collided with another vehicle, a statement from the Kansas City Police reads. The young girl was taken to the hospital following the incident, but it is reported that she only suffered “minor bumps and bruises.” According to officers, the young girl woke up on Wednesday morning and wanted to go to McDonald’s. Instead of waking her sleeping mother, she took the family's Chevy Tahoe herself. The girl drove for a couple of miles before getting lost and then collided with another vehicle while attempting a turn. — Yahoo! Lifestyle

Dear Apple and Samsung, $1,000 is way too much for a smartphone, consumers say

For Bill Wilson, it's simple. He won't pay $1,000 for a smartphone. Period. "I'll be hanging onto my iPhone 6 Plus until grim death," says the radio production manager from Gainesville, Georgia. One grand "is just too much money for what you get." Wilson is in ample company. This week's earnings reports for Apple and Samsung both showed a clear trend: consumer resistance to the ever-growing high prices of premium smartphones. The iPhone line now starts at $449, versus $350 in 2018, and topped at $1,100, while Samsung's premium Galaxy phones are near the $1,000 mark as well. A new model, the Fold, will break all pricing records when it's released in September at close to $2,000. — USA Today

Why Bill Belichick and some players are not depicted in 'Madden NFL' or other video games

Any fan of the "Madden NFL" video game series will know that in some editions certain players and coaches are replaced by stand-ins or may be absent, but why are some iconic figures in the NFL no-shows in the game? The short answer is that EA Sports does not have the rights to use certain players names or likeness in their games. The coach who most conspicuously missing from the game over the years has been New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, and that will continue in "Madden NFL 20." The six-time Super Bowl champion in New England is not part of the NFL Coaches Association, which licenses the coaches' likenesses, so EA Sports cannot use his name or likeness in the game. EA Sports and the NFLCA agreed to a deal ahead of the release of "Madden NFL 2002" and anyone not in the association is subbed out of the video game. — CBS Sports
