Good news if your iPhone or iPod broke and you had trouble getting Apple to fix it. "Wired" says Apple has agreed to make cash payouts to consumers in a $53 million class action settlement. Apple has been refusing to repair or replace some devices if a hidden indicator tape showed signs of water exposure. The tape's maker says sometimes humidity alone can cause the tape to turn pink.

Meantime Google has unveiled a new feature that lets you control what happens to your digital assets when you die. "Inactive Account Manager" allows you to have your G-mail messages and data from other google services deleted if they're not used for a set period of time.

Investors are looking at a report on March retail sales and also at quarterly results from Chase and Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo is downsizing bank branches to cut costs. The Wall Street Journal says the bank is testing a very small branch where instead of teller windows, employees walk around with tablets fastened to their hands.

And Starbucks is getting ready to unveil a new frappuccino, the "Caramel Ribbon Frappucino." "The Daily Meal" says it comes with four different kinds of caramel in it. The website says if you want a salad to balance out all the sugar, Starbucks is also unveiling a bunch of healthy salad dishes.
