1.) Our beer is being watered down, and we don’t like it. At least, that’s what a group of Americans in California, New Jersey and Pennsylvania believe, and they’ve filed a class action lawsuit against Anheuser-Busch. Their suit claims that water is added as the last step before the Anheuser-Busch beer, like Budweiser and Michelob, is put into bottles, cans, and kegs. That makes it so the alcohol content is anywhere from 3% to 8% lower than what is listed on the label. The suit is seeking $5 million, Anheuser-Busch says it's groundless.
2.) There are some things you’d think you couldn’t put a price on; evidently naming your child is not one of them. A Los Angeles mother has sold the rights to name her child. BellyBallot, a website that lets your family and friends vote on your baby name via Facebook and other social media sites, launched a contest to be their national “Belly Branding” winner. From March 18th – 22nd, on-line voting will provide a boy and girl name that the woman and her husband are expected to give their baby. The couple is being paid $5,000 for their child naming rights.
3.) You may never have to walk to your mailbox again. Instead, for just 5 dollars a month, Outbox will collect and manage your physical mail. Simply sign-up, and via their web site or an iPhone or iPad app, you’ll be prompted to discard, deliver, prioritize or unsubscribe from any piece of mail. Three times a week, Outbox’s team of “Unpostmen” will empty your mailbox and bring it to a secure warehouse. If you’d like any of that mail delivered to your home or office, you make the request from your smartphone or tablet and it arrives a day or two later, at no additional cost.
