Google’s big October event is today, and rumors suggest we’ll see a ton of new hardware unveiled, including new Pixel smartphones.

The event will also tell us more about Google home, the Amazon Echo competitor that Google previewed at I/O earlier this year, including likely when you can get your hands on one.

Chipotle Mexican Grill will roll out chorizo nationwide.

The burrito chain previously launched a limited release of the spicy chicken and pork sausage in five markets back in June.

Chipotle executives say the reaction to the chorizo tests were overwhelmingly positive.

Stocks fell broadly yesterday, led by drops in utilities and real estate.

The Dow lost 54 points to close at 18-thousand 254.

Auto sales went flat in September.

General Motors, Fiat Chrysler and Ford Motor posted U.S. sales declines in September, but they all edged analyst expectations.

As cultural attitudes about pregnancy have shifted, so, too, has the maternity aisle.

Traditional maternity companies, long dominated by the giant Destination Maternity chain, have shrunk 0.2 percent each year since 2011, according to the research firm Ibisworld.

Many are looking for clothes they can also wear after they’ve had the baby.
