Worried about your social after life? Now you can designate a party planner.

In the event of your untimely demise Facebook now allows you to designate a person to make sure all your important posts are still being seen. Called a legacy contact, this is the person that will manage your Facebook page while you rest comfortably six feet under.

First you have to choose someone you can count on to keep your Facebook page up and running. To do this first you go to settings, then security and then legacy contact. Once you type in the person's name you have the option of sending them a message informing them of the responsibility they have been entrusted with. That message lets them know they are your legacy contact because you are confident they can get the job done.  read more »

CNet is also reporting that Apple might reveal the apps that will be available and confirm how long the battery would last.  read more »

A Massachusetts man is making money out of snowballs.

This winter the east coast has been hit with freezing temperatures and up to ten feet of snow in some cities. Now Kyle Waring is shoveling up his winter wonderland and sending it off to people in warmer climates.

He started by shipping one pound bottles of snow for $20 but he discovered that it had melted by the time it reached his destination. Turns out the bigger the package of snow the higher the chance of it staying frozen. So now he ships six pound packages of snow for $89. By the time it reaches its new home, the snow has gotten a little slushy but the package can still make about ten to fifteen snowballs.  read more »
