(Reuters) – Although Seana Mulcahy considers herself tech savvy, she was thrown a bit when her 8-year-old son Logan not once, but twice, ran up charges using apps downloaded from Apple Inc’s online iTunes store.
The first time, he downloaded a free game and ended up spending about $60 before Mulcahy, 42, an internet advertising and marketing executive from Andover, Massachusetts, received a notification of the charges a couple of days later.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Not all coffee is created – or brewed – equally.
Caffeine levels in coffee can vary sharply, which means it matters where you go if you are looking for a pick-me-up.
And that matters to a lot of people. More than 80 percent of U.S. adults identify themselves as coffee drinkers, according to the National Coffee Association.

March 11 (Reuters) – A few weeks after Melanie Mendez and
her husband returned home to Massachusetts from South Florida in
January they received a bill from a rental car company for $555.
The reason? Damage to the 2012 Hyundai Sonata GLS they had
Mendez, 41, says the damage was there when she got the car,
but a diagram made at the time of the rental noted it on the
wrong side of the vehicle. While she normally pays more
attention, this slip got away from her. And once it was done,
there was no convincing the rental agency that it was
pre-existing damage. She had to turn to the Better Business
Bureau, which eventually got the charge dropped.
