News Roundup for Parent Bloggers, Facebook Wants Your Organs Edition

Posted by

Bleeding heart
Facebook has now made it possible to share your status as an organ donor, bringing awareness to the need for organ donation. While the power of Facebook has already inspired potential donors to declare their intentions, Mark Zuckerberg declared that it was his girlfriend who inspired him to lead the initiative. (In other news, Mark Zuckerberg has a girlfriend.)

In other news:

Blogging baby Avery has passed away. I wish she had had enough time for everything on her sweet little bucket list. Rest in peace.

Microsoft rebrands and reimagines its cloud service, killing off Windows Live.

Apple may not be on board, but consumers evidently are ready to purchase an iPad mini. Then again, a smaller tablet may be even easier to forget at the airport, which evidently happens more often than you might think.

In other travel news, Spirit Airlines has a plan for offsetting rising fuel costs – charging up to $100 for carry on bags.

And there’s your weekly round-up! Check back in next Friday to see what’s caught our eye.

By day, I'm an editor, a writer and the mama of three girls, one of whom was adopted from Vietnam in 2007. By night, I'm a mama in pajamas and can be found lounging on the couch in my bunny slippers with a glass of wine (red, of course!).
