ATLANTA---On the Business Beat our focus is on a major truck recall, new products from Apple and quick weekend getaways.
A major recall this morning for the 3rd best selling truck in the U-S.
It's the Dodge Ram---with almost 250,000 being recalled for possible steering problems.
Chrysler says it will tell dealers which trucks have to be repaired to correct a possible linkage issue that can cause a loss of control to the left front wheel of the Ram.
And discounts on the way this morning from Delta for a quick weekend getaway.
You can leave on Saturday morning and return either Monday or Tuesday.
Atlanta to Savannah is $69 one way.
Remember the tickets are non-refundable

And reports this morning that Apple is working toward a Fall debut of a new version of its iPad and a new iPhone.
Experts say the new iPad will be a high definition version with double the screen resolution.
It may also have more sophisticated photo editing software.
The timing would allow Apple to include its new operating system OS 5, which is due out in the Fall with some 200 added features.
On the new iPhone, the Wall Street Journal reports it is due out in late September and will be thinner and have a more powerful camera.
