Morning Mix Show Notes 10/18
Your Gourmet Guess, what will you be for Halloween and the iPhone has broken up its first marriage.
Your Gourmet Guess clue for today: This leans on two primary ingredients: pimento (all spice) and Scotch bonnet peppers. It can be applied to goat, shellfish, and tofu as well as chicken, beef and pork. (Scroll down for the correct answer.)
A new survey by Blockbuster says that most of us will not be dressing up as a political figure this Halloween. Maybe it’s because no Republican presidential contenders look all that distinctive, or it’s because the economy is so bad that dressing up as the President isn’t even remotely funny, but movie characters seem to be the hot costumes this year. One in four of us who are dressing up will be wearing a movie or TV themed costume and one in three will be an action hero or adventure star. Have you found your costume yet?
The new iPhone 4S went on sale last week and it is already being blamed for breaking up a marriage. Turns out, there’s a new app called Find My Friends which is completely voluntary, but if you want your friends to find out where you’re hanging and join you, you can allow your friends to see your location at all times. Well, a guy from New York City suspected his wife was cheating on him, so he bought her a shiny new iPhone 4S and without her knowing, he uploaded the Find My Friends app. She told him she was going to hang at a girlfriend’s apartment, but the app told a different story. Turns out, she was with a guy at his apartment in another part of the city. He took screenshots of what he found and said that it’s going to be very helpful when he meets her at the lawyer’s office in a few weeks.
