IN THE NEWS: MLB BLACKOUT RULES LIKELY TO EASE SOON

NEW YORK (AP) -- If you're a sports fan who likes to catch games online, you know the drill: you can watch out-of-market games with no problem -- but can't catch the games of your local team because of league blackout rules. Now, one of the major professional leagues is close to easing some of those rules. Major League Baseball says it will ease the blackout restrictions on games -- and the move could come as early as next season. Bob Bowman, who heads baseball's online business, says he's optimistic that a deal can be reached with the various cable operators, channels and ballclubs. Bowman says a few years ago, the two sides were "4 feet apart" -- and "they are now 6 inches apart" on the parameters of a deal to lift blackout restrictions.

IN THE NEWS: BARNES & NOBLE TO RELEASE NEW TABLET

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Nook is dying -- long live the Nook. Barnes & Noble is teaming up with Samsung to unveil a new tablet that will replace the bookseller's own Nook tablets.

The move had been expected; Barnes & Noble said back in June that it would join forces with Samsung to release cobranded Nook tablets this summer. One new twist: the new Nook will have a camera, something previous versions did not.
