CHO me the outrage – I have to admit that I am more than a little surprised at the lack of lashback against Yahoo! and their new Shine.Â Ask.com recently decided it was going to be a niche search engine, dedicated to “married women looking for help managing their lives” and now Yahoo! has seemingly taken the steps to create a sight dedicated to the “Chief Household Officer” (CHO).Â According the story on Yahoo News, Yahoo said the site will have “attitude,” “personality,” and humor, while providing advice and secret tips like “a friend.”Â Maybe it is just me (and am I really the right one to be offended by this?), but about the only way I could see Yahoo! making this a bit more misogynistic,Â would have been if they added to that saying something like, “would be just like your best friend, only it won’t steal your boyfriend.”Â The only thing I can figure is that the content is good enough to keep people from being annoyed by the marketing mis-steps.
Comparison shop on the fly – So you are shopping in a store and see something you like, but you are thinking, “I could probably find it cheaper online” but that requires you to avoid the instant gratification of buying it “now” right?Â Well, not anymore.Â Amazon has now started the TextBuyIt program, which people text the name of a product, its description or its UPC or ISBN to 262966 (that’s “Amazon” on the keypad) from anywhere their cell phones work â€” including from inside physical stores.”
And you thought it was just to wake you up – According to a new research report, coffee may cut the risk of dementia.Â So, as it turns out, not only will coffee enable you to keep up with your kids, it will help keep them from driving you nuts.Â (I’m joking, please no e-mail defining what dementia really means)
Not Just Wrong, well beyond it – Every time I think I can’t see anything new that parent’s do that would bother me… bang… there it is.Â This time, it is an article in PhiladelphiaÂ Magazine about mothers taking their pre-pubescent daughters in for Bikini Waxes, eyebrow waxing and other spa beauty treatments.Â Tell me, what are the odds of these girls not growing up with severe body issues?
