Bonehead Of The Day

Two young girls spreading holiday cheer were kicked off of a grocery store's property for singing Christmas carols.

The girls chose a store near their home to give shoppers "a warm fuzzy feeling." They made a sign stating they didn't want any money and no one went into the store to file a complaint either. Instead, people stopped outside to listen to them.

The girls hadn't even been singing for an hour when they were told they had to leave the property. They were told the store policy didn't allow carolers.

Introducing The Detachable Keyboard For Your Smartphone!


A detachable keyboard is coming for the iPhone, thanks in part of Ryan Seacrest who invested a million dollars in the project.

The Typo Keyboard costs $99 and is due to launch in January for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S handsets. Other smartphones and tablet versions will then follow later next year.

The physical keyboard slides onto touchscreen phones to make it look like a Blackberry.

When a user wants to write a message, email or Facebook post they can type on the physical keyboard and the key strokes will be sent wirelessly to the phone in real-time.

Weird Stuff People Leave Behind During The Holidays

The holiday season is a popular time for leaving things behind and stocking lost and found boxes in airports and malls.

The most common things left behind in malls are bags full of brand new clothes. Be sure you keep an eye on your latest purchases when you're out shopping.

At one mall, two of the oddest things people have left behind include a bicycle and a pair of crutches. The grossest thing ever left behind is lunchboxes full of old food.

Any clothing that is left behind for longer than 90 days is given to the Salvation Army and any expensive items left behind are put in a safe.

After Black Friday the lost and found bin gets especially crowded with items like earrings, watches, phones, credit cards, car keys, passports, wedding rings and those buzzers from restaurants that tells you when your food is ready.
