We know deflating and disgusting it is to sour milk. Well know there is an app to help you to remember to get more milk. The milk is in a new jug where the amount of milk and quality are monitored. When the amount is low or the pH levels are bad, your phone will send you a text. You can also just simply check up on your milk through the app too.
I chose this article because I thought it was pretty cool. I am not a big milk drinker but using technology to eliminate everyday hassles is something I think is overdue and innovative. I hope more apps like this due come out.

The new iPad has been released. The third in the line of Apple tablets but not the iPad 3 rather the iPad HD. The new generation of tablets has nearly no new additions externally and the ones internally are minimal. The new iPad is 4G LTE compatible, holds a new A5X processor chip, and improves its "retina" screen. It will be interesting to see if Apple can continue to dominate the market with a new tablet.
I found this interesting because I am curious to see the progression of the iPad. Even with few improvements, will it sell or rather how many will it sell? I am curios to see if people start to explore other tablet options due to the underwhelming revamp. We will see.
