Gotta Watch: life-saving phone; electronic wonderland; bittersweet homecoming

Phone drops death's call – Some may think cell phones can kill you, but an Atlanta valet would argue otherwise. After being shot in the chest outside a nightclub, the stunned man reached into his bullet-holed coat and pulled out his now dented cell phone. I wonder if EMS kept snapping their fingers and asking, "Can you hear me now?"

CNN infiltrates the gadget nerd-dom- CNN's Dan Simon unveils some of the latest in futuristic gadgetry at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, including a 92-inch 3-D TV as thin as a quarter. It'll cost you $6,000, but why does your kid really need college anyway?

Refugees risk death to return home – CNN's Ben Wedeman tells the story of Southern Sudanese refugees returning to their homes just days before a referendum will decide whether the country is split in two.

    CEO's annual salaries are in the millions. Then they go crying to Uncle Sam for a bail out. They get it, then back to step one. That's not why Obama helped them out.
