6:15 Mom's never have to worry about NOT getting a hold of their teens again. There's a new mom created app...App Forces Kids To Pick Up When You Call
If your teen never picks up when you call, you need the app "Ignore No More." The app is the brain child of a New York Mom who hired developers after being fed up with her teenagers not answering her calls. The app is $1.99 and allows parents to lock their kids' phones from a separate device, forcing them to call a list of select numbers in order to gain access to the device. The application's website reads, "No calls to friends, no text, no games, notta' until they call you back. When they do, you can unlock their phone if you choose to do so. How's that for parental control?" http://time.com/3135763/ignore-no-more-mom-app/
6:45 Wouldn't it be great to enhance the experience of taste? What am I talking about? It's called the “Aromafork”. Read on friends, read on.
Aromafork Makes Scents for Mealtime
What's better than tucking into a nice, juicy steak? How about if that meat tasted simultaneously like berries, or mint, or bubble gum? The gastronomic geniuses behind the company Molecule-R have cooked up the Aromafork, a utensil that uses specially-designed scent diffusers to enhance your meals with various scents.
Taste buds can only recognize five primary tastes -- salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and a fifth known as umami -- sort of a catch-all for savory flavors. However, much of taste is based on scent, and noses can pick up far more aromas. According to the product's website, "The AROMAFORK provides a flow of aromas upon inhalation, therefore doubling the flavors your brain can [analyze]!" Basically, the product's scents trickling up from the fork trick the brain into combining the smell and the taste into one different taste.
One 59-dollar kit includes 4 Aromaforks, 21 selected aromas, scent droppers, papers for diffusing the scents on the fork, and one "multi-sensory evening program." http://molecule-r.com/en/volatile-flavoring-kits/179-aroma-r-evolution.html
7:15 Little girl Chloe Smith gave her parents a piece of her mind and it went viral. I wonder what they did to piss her off? Regardless she tells her parents a note that she will not be participating in reading with them tonight. Boom! Tell em Chloe.
8:15 See, the Facebook messenger app isn't as bad as people think it is. Mainly because we already give away all this information but we don't normally pay attention to it.
8:45 MTV Video Music Awards are coming on this Sunday, August 24th. I used to always look forward to it, but the fact is, the older I get, the less I know the artists and I feel out of touch. This year however will prove to be much better than last year's with (Miley twerking...remember that?) Maroon 5 and Beyonce and I'm excited to see Sam Smith are slated to perform.
