The White House says it has fixed HealthCare.gov, relaunched on Saturday to serve 50,000 users simultaneously so people can get insurance by the Jan. 1 deadline.

The U.S. Capitol dome was completed 150 years ago today. It will soon be encased in scaffolding to fix thousands of cracks and restore it to its intended glory.

The panda cub at the National Zoo has a name. Bao Bao, chosen by 123,000 online voters, means precious or treasure.

Thanksgiving spending was down in stores compared to last year, despite earlier-than-ever holiday hours, but online spending was up.

Imagine what this will do to sales: Amazon unveiled its drone delivery prototype program "Prime Air" on "60 Minutes" Sunday. The flights can deposit packages up to five pounds within a half-hour inside a 10-mile radius. CEO Jeff Bezos said he hopes to introduce drones in the next 4-5 years.
