Apple Releasing iPod Touch iPad Mini This Fall

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

iPad mini hitting market in October

In response to competition from Amazon and Google's seven-inch tablets, Apple is reportedly releasing an iPad Mini in October.

The shrunken version of the standard 9.7-inch iPad will feature a 7.85-inch display and cost customers $299 if they are looking for 8GB of memory.

Steve Jobs' successor, Tim Cook, was not a huge fan of the smaller screens, but has decided to launch the product to compete directly with Microsoft's Surface.

Apple is also releasing the new iOS 6 operating system during the same month, which is prompting expectations for yet another iPhone.

Are U pumped for brand new versions of your favorite technological toys?

Rachel Zoe Reveals Her Tiffany & Co Windows!

Filed under: Rachel ZoeElizabeth TaylorJewelry

The world can finally see Rachel Zoe's custom designed windows for Tiffany & Co in honor of the upcoming Academy Awards.

Having unveiled her latest collection of inspired work, we see that Rachel fused fashion with Hollywood.

For example, she used the famous Fleur de Mer brooch worn by Elizabeth Taylor as the focus of one of her designs.

But finding her focus wasn't as easy as one may think.

She explains:

You have to conceptualize something very large, like a very special idea and concept, but it has to really fit into a very, very small box, so it’s a very specific process.

Fashion overlaps, style-wise, so it was about making [the backgrounds] very different. For example, the 30s and 40s kind of involved more feathers and maribou and diamonds and boudoir.

Absolutely-fabulous!!

Please, peruse le photos below to see the unveiling URself!!

5,000 Kids A Year Are Injured From Falling Out Windows

Filed under: Baby Blabber

Baby Window Falls

That's a staggering number, guys.

5,000 kids a year are hurt from window falling. That works out to about 14 cases a day.

A DAY.

"We still are seeing over 5,000 children a year treated in hospital emergency departments across the country for injuries related to window falls, said Dr. Gary A. Smith, study author and director of the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. "That's 14 children a day. This continues to be a very common, important problem."

Boys were involved in more falls from windows than girls were. In addition, the younger children made up two-thirds of the injuries. The injury rate was highest at age 2.

"These are kids who don't recognize danger - they're curious, they want to explore and when they see an open window, they are going to investigate," Smith said. "Kids at that age tend to be top heavy. Their center of gravity is up near their chest and so as they lean out of the window to see what's going on, they'll topple."

"What we're finding is that most of these aren't these really high-rise buildings," Smith added. "These are just often homes or apartments that aren't high-rise, where children live. This is a problem that extends to small towns and even rural areas across the country."

That's crazy! People should be more aware of these problems… seriously, we feel like "falling out of windows" would be a major concern that people would already handle!

Here's what you can do:

Parents of children younger than 5:
-Use window guards or locks
-Do not allow any window to be open more than four inches
-Move furniture away from windows so children cannot climb on it

Parents of children older than 5:
-Educate children and teens of the risk of climbing out of a window or jumping from it

Do it! Your kid's safety should ALWAYS be a priority!

Stay safe!
