1.) This didn’t take very long. Already, Subway is being sued because their “footlong” sandwiches come up a little short. After discovering their sandwiches measured about a half-inch short, two New Jersey men filed a lawsuit. Subway has not seen the suit, but explained that the baking process at individual stores may lead to inconsistencies. But the company has redoubled their effort in their more than 38,000 restaurants worldwide. A lawyer quoted in the Philadelphia Inquirer says the chain is shorting customers about 45 cents a sandwich.
2.) The newest fans of Apple’s iPad are a little hairier than the average user. The Smithsonian's National Zoo has kicked off “Apps for Apes,” a program that lets orangutans use the iPad as a way to stimulate their lives. The National Zoo offers more than 10 iPad apps that the orangutans can use, including musical instruments, drawing programs, and even cognitive games. Some of the apps the apes are enjoying include playing the drums on the tablet, tickling the ivories on a virtual piano, and a Koi Pond app that displays animated fish with music in the background.
3.) Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest chicken wing-eating day of the year. So it’s not good news today that the National Chicken Council has announced that there’s a shortage of chicken wings. The shortage is because prices for corn and feed are at an all time high. Because of that, companies are producing fewer chickens. The Council estimates wing consumption on Super Bowl Sunday will hit 1.23 billion wings, which is 12.3 million less than last year.
