    The couple's spokeswoman, Lauren Littlefield, attended a news conference Friday with Hoosier Lottery officials.

    A spokeswoman says a central Indiana couple won the $536 million Mega Millions jackpot drawn this month, but they've chosen to remain anonymous.

    The couple's spokeswoman, Lauren Littlefield, attended a news conference Friday with Hoosier Lottery officials. Lottery director Sarah Taylor confirmed the couple purchased the sole winning ticket for the July 8 drawing.

    Littlefield says the couple and their two children live just north of Indianapolis.

    She says they bought five tickets with computer-generated numbers at a gas station along Interstate 70 in Cambridge City while heading to a youth sporting event.

    Taylor says the couple will take a $271 million lump sum, after taxes. Littlefield says they were first-time Mega Millions players.

    Indiana allows jackpot winners to remain anonymous.

    [NATL] New 'Soundwave' Tattoos Can Talk, Play Music

    What if tattoos could talk? That's what Nate Siggard, CEO and founder of Skin Motion, is trying to do with his soundwave tattoo app. It works like this: users can upload sounds and voices to the app, creating a waveform of the audio. They can print out these waveforms and have them turned into tattoos. They can point their mobile phone or tablet device at the tattoo and use the app to play back the sound.
