Toyota comes out on top again, Jimmy Dean moves beyond breakfast, and the battery the world has waited for.

The numbers are in and Toyota remains the world's largest automaker so far this year.  The Japanese automaker says it has sold more than 5 million vehicles worldwide in the first 6 months of the year.

Volkswagen finished second with just under 5 million vehicles sold, followed by General Motors.  Toyota, which makes the Camry sedan, Prius hybrid and Lexus luxury models, finished at the top last year with a record 9.98 million vehicles for the year.

GM was second and VW third.
