After years of getting shut out of the new car market, young buyers are back. A new report by J.D. Power and Associates shows teens, all the way up to the 35-age group, are making up 23 percent of new car sales. That's the highest since 2008. It's not just that study. Another group that tracks new vehicle registrations found a similar trend. Buyers 18 through 34 made up 12 percent of all new vehicle registrations from January through July.

The Paris Auto show is underway. Auto sales in Europe have been in steady decline. Research indicates Europe won't bounce back until 2014. In the meantime, French companies like Peugeot, Citroen and Renault are showing off their latest models.

Those angry birds may be a little angrier today. That's because "bad piggies" have arrived to steal the show. They're available today in the Apple app store and Google play for just 99 cents. The game is still based around physics like angry birds, but there's no destruction. Instead, the goal is to get the "bad piggies" from point A to point B on a map.
