Puppy Tragically Dies On United Flight: Add another customer service snafu to United Airlines list--and this time, it cost a family their beloved family pet. According to The New York Times a family was ordered to put their French Bulldog puppy's pet carrier in the overhead bin with the dog in it. A passenger sitting behind the family on the flight said she heard the whole thing, including the flight attendant telling the family that the pet carrier, which was under their seat, was a safety hazard because it was blocking the aisle. The family eventually complied--and discoverd that the dog had died when they arrived in New York. United Airlines has apologized to the family and said they're investigating the tragedy because putting an animal in the overhead bin is against their pet policy, which does allow passengers to pay $125 to travel in the cabin with their non-service animal in a pet carrier for the duration of the flight.
In the wake of social media outrage over reports that a dog died on one of its flights after being put in an overhead bin, United Airlines acknowledged in a statement that a "tragic accident" had occurred https://t.co/sU785zKWKH pic.twitter.com/hpNW7BckGN

Crumb-Resistant Keyboard? Yep, Apple is working on coming up with a keyboard that will help keep your keyboard cleaner. The Sun reports that Apple has submitted a patent application for a bunch of different ways to keep dirt out, including things to seal up spaces with things like brushes, wipers, gaskets and flaps, as well as a membrane under the keys that would some how push out air when keys are pressed, which would help keep it clean by expelling any dust or dirt.
Want To Burn Calories? Take A Bath. A new study finds that taking a bath can burn as many as 130 calories, which is about the same as taking a 30-minute walk. According to The Sun, the Loughborough University study found that to get the calorie burning benefits, the bath has to be 104 degrees and you have to sit in it for 30 minutes. They also found that it lowered blood sugar by about 10%.
