In other highly anticipated news, LeBron James has officially announced his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. James was a league champion and MVP in both 2012 and 2013 with the Miami Heat and cited always wanting to return to Cleveland to finish his career.

The Federal Trade commission issued a lawsuit against Amazon Friday for allowing children to make unauthorized in-app purchases. The FTC who already sued Apple this past January, claims Amazon did not protect their customers by requiring a password or way of shielding customers from unwanted purchases made by children. The FTC is offering to drop the lawsuit if Amazon makes changes to their app.

In honor of 70-year-old Rubik’s Cube creator’s birthday, a giant Rubik’s cube was towed down Staten Island to Manhattan and back again. Fans are also celebrating the Cube's 40th anniversary this year.

New details have surfaced over the never before seen episode of Seinfeld titled, “The Bet.” The episode surrounds Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) potentially buying a gun for protection, as part of a bet. This episode is apparently one loyal Seinfeld fans never got to see as the cast refused to air it on American television, as it was too controversial for them. The writer of the episode is Larry Charles who went on to direct Sacha Baron Cohen films, Borat, Bruno and The Dictator.
