New Smart Countertop Tells You What to Eat
The Orange Chef Countertop – a food prep pad with a build in scale takes fitness apps a step further by actually telling you what to make. It can actually calculate what you’re putting in your crock pot or blender and let you know if you’re breaking your diet. You can stick with the USDA’s suggestions for intake or customize your goals.
You can install adapters to Vitamix mixers and Crock-Pot slow cookers that will monitor how much food you’re putting in and automatically log it in the app’s food diary. But all this convenience comes at a price. The Coutertop base is $199 , the Vitamix adapter $20 and the Crock-Pot adapter $10. Plus you’ll still need to do some manual entering, just as with any food tracking app. You can learn more about the smart counter top on the Orange Chef’s website.

Judge Gives Woman Okay To Serve Divorce Papers Via Facebook Message
A New York judge ruled that a woman who was having a hard time tracking down the physical location of her husband to serve him with divorce papers, can send him his divorce summons via Facebook message.
In the ruling, the judge wrote, “This transmittal shall be repeated by plaintiff’s attorney to defendant once a week for three consecutive weeks or until acknowledged.”
The missing hubby has no permanent address and has been dodging attempts by his wife to serve the papers, but he is still active on Facebook.
