In this May 7, 2014 photo, Rene Lima-Marin sits for an interview with The Associated Press about the circumstances of his sentencing and incarceration, in a meeting room inside Kit Carson Correctional Center, a privately operated prison in Burlington, Colo. Lima-Marin, who was sent back to prison after being mistakenly released 90 years early, says it was cruel and unusual punishment to put him back behind bars after he reformed his life. An appeal filed Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014 in his case also says his constitutional rights were violated when a judge in January ordered him to finish his sentence after he started a family during nearly six years of freedom. A judge in 2000 sentenced Lima-Marin to a total of 98 years in prison for multiple counts stemming from the robbery of two video stores when Lima-Marin was 20.

(Reuters) - Intuit Inc, the developer of tax-preparation software TurboTax, forecast a much bigger first-quarter loss, citing restructuring in its small business group unit. The Mountain View, California-based company earns most of its profit in its second and third quarters when people are more likely to buy its do-it-yourself tax preparation software in the lead up to tax season. Intuit said on Thursday its net loss widened to $39 million, or 14 cents per share, in the fourth quarter ended July 31, from $16 million, or 5 cents per share, a year earlier. Intuit's shares were down 1.6 percent in extended trading after closing at $85.81 on the Nasdaq. Read More

A Wall Street sign is pictured in the rain outside the New York Stock ExchangeThe S&P 500 broke two records during Thursday's session, climbing past its previous intraday all-time high of 1,991.39 and ending above its previous record close of 1,987.98. Market participants refrained from making big bets before Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's speech on Friday at a policymakers' meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which could provide clues on the timing of an interest-rate hike. Some investors also remained skeptical of whether the stock market's recent gains are sustainable, pointing to light trading volume. The S&P 500 gained 5.86 points, or 0.29 percent, to end at 1,992.37.

Google is testing its autonomous cars in a 'Matrix-style' version of CaliforniaGoogle has created what it calls a "Matrix-style," virtual version of California's road system that it's been using to test self-driving cars before sending them out onto the actual road, according to the Guardian. Google is apparently so thrilled with its simulation that it petitioned California's government earlier this year, in a letter obtained by the Guardian, to allow it to use these virtual simulations in place of actual driving tests when certifying a vehicle for use. "Computer simulations are actually more valuable, as they allow manufacturers to test their software under far more conditions and stresses than could possibly be achieved on a test track," Google safety director Ron Medford wrote. The simulation maps the entirety of California's road system and has been used to virtually drive Google's autonomous cars for over 4 million miles, according to the Guardian.

David Price of the Detroit Tigers pitches during the seventh inning of a game against the Tampa Bay Rays on August 21, 2014 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FloridaDetroit pitcher David Price tossed a one-hitter at his former Tampa Bay teammates Thursday but lost as the Rays edged the visiting Tigers 1-0. Five days shy of his 29th birthday, the American left-hander faced his former Major League Baseball club for the first time and took the loss thanks to the only hit he surrendered. A throwing error by Detroit shortstop Eugenio Suarez allowed Ben Zobrist to reach first base with one out in the first inning and Brandon Guyer followed with a triple to centerfield to produce the game's only run. Tampa Bay starter Alex Cobb and relievers Brad Boxberger and Jake McGee combined on a four-hit shutout to snap a four-game losing skid for the Rays.

Lei Jun, founder and CEO of China's mobile company Xiaomi, announces the price of the new Xiaomi Phone 4 at its launching ceremony, in BeijingBy Malathi Nayak SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - U.S video game service Ouya is turning to Asia to capture the growth that has eluded the startup on its own home turf. The Santa Monica, California-based firm has partnered with Xiaomi Inc to take its games to Chinese living rooms via the smartphone maker's new streaming boxes and "smart" TVs, an Ouya executive and a source at Xiaomi close to the deal told Reuters. Xiaomi, which in three years became China's top smartphone seller ahead of Apple Inc and Samsung, harbors ambitions beyond mobile gadgets. Last year, it expanded into the TV and set-top box business with its "MiBox" and "MiTV." Ouya Chief Executive Julie Uhrman said details are still getting hashed out but it's likely Ouya will get a dedicated channel on Xiaomi software installed on those devices, on which gamers can shop for and download a selection of its independently developed games later this year, Uhrman said.

Clayton Vila is finally taking hold of the reins. Vila has filmed with production companies like Stept, TGR, and Poor Boyz but always felt like he had to cede a little too much creative control to larger forces. This fall, the 23-year old will drop his first solo film project, Five, fo' free on the interwebs. This 11-minute documentary shines light on Vila's past, how he views himself as a skier, and why he decided to self-direct and self-produce his own film. If Vila goes as hard on this film as he has on his face—and there's little doubt the self-proclaimed perfectionist will—my fingers are poised and ready above my mouse to stream the shit out of this.

Here's an interview about Vila's idea of a good day—pounding the pavement sunup to sundown until he nails the trick, perfectly.

Cars and motorcycles are seen driving by the ICBC building in Buenos Aires' financial districtDistrict Judge Thomas Griesa on Thursday called Argentina's proposed debt restructuring plan "illegal" but stopped short of holding the country in contempt, saying that would not help resolve the dispute that led to the country's second default in a dozen years. Griesa said proposed legislation announced on Tuesday by President Cristina Fernandez would violate orders he imposed favoring creditors who refused to restructure bonds following the country's 2002 default on $100 billion in debt. Argentina missed a June interest payment after Griesa blocked payments owed to holders of debt issued under U.S. The proposal prompted lawyers for Elliott Management Corp's NML Capital Ltd and Aurelius Capital Management, the leading bondholders suing for payment after not participating in the country's restructurings, to seek a contempt finding.
