Candy Crush injury

Here’s what happens when you play Candy Crush on your phone ALL DAY for six weeks.  A California man tore a tendon in his thumb while playing Candy Crush on his cellphone and didn’t even realize he was injured.  The 29-year-old had been playing the popular game all day for six weeks since he had just left the military and didn’t have a job yet.  He tore the tendon which is a painful injury but said he felt nothing until much later.  Doctors say this shows video games can temporarily numb people’s pain and this might be why some people play them excessively and actually become addicted.

Best or worst alarm clock

A new app will make it easier for your cellphone’s alarm to get you up and going in the morning by making it much harder to ignore.  The alarm will only turn off if you physically get out of bed and scan a barcode while in another part of your house.
The inventor of the “I’m Up Alarm” says, “We all hit the snooze, toss and turn, and fall back asleep.  Then we do the morning dash because we lose those coveted morning minutes.”

The app links your phone’s alarm to a QR code that can be placed anywhere in your home that’s not in arms reach of your bed.  For example, the code can be placed on coffee mugs or magnetic buttons in the kitchen.

Jon Bon Jovi reality TV show

Rock star Jon Bon Jovi is teaming up with a bunch of entertainment bigwigs to produce a new nonfiction TV series titled “If I Wasn’t a Rock Star.”  The show will feature music stars who ditch their celebrity lifestyles to go back to their hometowns and experience the lives they may have led if they hadn’t hit the big time.  Bon Jovi says, “I was drawn to this project simply because it will be a celebration of the working men and women of this country.  They are the real rock stars.”

No network has picked up the series… yet.

Turn off your phone, get a discount

A restaurant in New York City is giving customers a discount for staying off their cellphones.  Lebro’s Restaurant is now discounting bills by 10% when families don’t use their phones during their meals on Sunday.  Customers are happy with the idea, taking to Facebook with positive posts.

Meanwhile, golf fans going to the Masters this week will have to leave their phones at home, in their cars or at the gate before entering.  If anyone is caught with a phone they will be escorted out.  Masters officials want fans to pay attention to the action and interact with each other.  Hmmm, nice idea!

A woman on the $20

Many are speaking out in support of changing the face of the $20 bill to include a woman who played a significant role in U.S. history.  Over 250,000 people have voted in an online poll from CNN to get the list down to these four women: Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt and Wilma Mankiller.

The “Women on the 20s” campaign is looking to oust Andrew Jackson for his role in running Native Americans from their lands.  The involvement of Wilma Mankiller is due to her being the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation.
