Remote-controlled robot snow plow that wows

Millions of Americans are digging out from the massive winter storm that has pummeled the east coast.

But what if you could get rid of that shovel and clear your driveway from the comfort of your own living room?

Massive storm leaves at least 16 dead

At least 16 deaths are being blamed on the massive storm, including a pregnant woman who was killed in New York by a private snow plow as she was loading groceries into her car. Her unborn baby was delivered by C-section and is in critical condition.

More than 600 thousand homes are still without power as snow and ice have knocked down trees and power lines.

Icy runways and poor visibility have led to at least seven thousand flight cancellations, leaving more than a million air travelers stranded by the storm.

Most major cities on the east coast were shut down, but New York city public schools were open and many residents weren't happy about it. Mayor Bill DeBlasio defended his decision claiming it was an unexpected forecast, but that didn't add up to NBC's Al Roker who blasted the mayor on Twitter.

"How dare @NYCMayorsOffice @NYCSchools throw NWS – (the national weather service) under the school bus. Forecast was on time and on the money"

New Republic: N.J. Gov. Chris Christie's career "built on a rotten foundation"

"Chris Christie's Entire Career Reeks: It's not just the bridge."

That's the title of a new cover story in a new issue of the New Republic, which suggests Bridgegate is just the tip of the iceberg and Christie's entire career "reeks."

"What Bridgegate has laid bare is the skill and audacity with which Christie constructed his public image. “It’s almost like people were in a trance,” Buono told me. Christie may have been misunderstood for so long because his transactionalism diverted from the standard New Jersey model. He wasn’t out to line his own pockets, or build a business empire. He wasn’t even seeking to advance a partisan agenda. And yet it was transactionalism all the same. Christie used a corrupt system to expand his own power and burnish his own image, and he did it so artfully that he nearly came within striking distance of the White House. When he got cozy with Democratic bosses, people only saw a man willing to work across the aisle. When he bullied his opponents, they only saw a truth-teller. It was one of the most effective optical illusions in American politics—until it wasn’t."

The author of the article, Alec MacGillis, is OutFront with CNN contributor Reihan Salam.

Comcast to buy Time Warner Cable: Will you pay more?

Serious questions are being asked about what Comcast's proposed $45.2 takeover of Time Warner Cable would mean for your cable and internet.

Comcast is already the largest cable and internet provider in the United States with 21.7 million cable subscribers.

Comcast deal to face antitrust hurdles

Time Warner Cable is a distant second with 11.2 million customers. If the deal is approved by federal regulators, Comcast will have a presence in 19 of the top 20 markets from New York to Los Angeles.

It will also control cable for about 30 percent of the nation.

Should that be a concern? And will you pay more?

It was all caught on a security camera. Among the losses was the one millionth corvette and the only 1983 Corvette in existence.
