kids apps for ipad:Mini Mining


Because there are tons of good matching and puzzle games already and, perhaps more importantly, lots of them are FREE. The case in point is Mini Mining by Airy Labs. It's a well-done matching game; kids can play by themselves, against a friend, or even online in kid-safe environment against other kids around the world. And it is free. From our review: Once the game gets going, the goal is to make the matches the fastest. The full screen of unflipped cards is shown momentarily, so those with a really good, quick memory will do much better than those of us who do not. E beat me two out of three games. Matching certain items provides more points and power-ups. For example, matching rockets increases your card flip-speed and matching lamps provides a quick glimpse of the board. There are easy and hard modes, which change the number of cards to match on each page.

Snack Company Says It Lost $20 Million After Starbucks Allegedly Broke Contract


A snack company based in Carlsbad, Calif., is claiming Starbucks breached a contract with it, leading it to struggle financially.

Eleven shareholders of Mellace Family Brands (MFB), which produced Mama Mellace's Chocolate and Mama Mellace's Organics snacks, among others, filed a lawsuit last week against Starbucks Corporation, saying complaints from Starbucks about Mellace products were actually due to a gas leak at a Starbucks facility. The shareholders allege that because of Starbucks' breach of contract, the company has suffered damages "in an amount to be proved at trial including, but not limited to, costs of business improvement, ongoing lost business while operating and foreseeable lost future profits, all in an amount exceeding $20 million." Zack Hutson, spokesman for Starbucks Coffee Company, said the company had discontinued business with Mellace Family Brands due to "ongoing quality issues." Hutson said Starbucks chooses its suppliers, of which it has 14,000 globally, by inspecting their "quality, service and value." "We're committed to meeting and exceeding the high expectations of our customers," Hutson said.

Woman loses 85 pounds on Starbucks diet


Every coffee shop has its regulars. But 66-year-old Christine Hall calls Starbucks her second home. That's because Hall eats all of her meals there, and she said it's helped her to lose nearly 85 pounds in two years. "Losing weight is hard," Hall said. "But I realized I could do it. I found a system that worked." Hall said she lost all that weight by counting calories. Starbucks puts nutrition information on the labels of their packaged foods. That made it easy to keep track of exactly how much she was eating. "A lot of people look at the top shelf and they think its muffins and fattening things, but look down on the second shelf and there are really healthy choices," Hall said. So she starts her day with oatmeal and black coffee – a total of 145 calories. Lunch and dinner is a Panini or bistro box - depending on which kind, that's anywhere from 220 to 460 calories per meal. "To get the protein every now and then, I get the ham and cheese panini and that's 340 (calories)," Hall said. "If I go for a bike ride, I can come back and have a brownie." But registered dietitian Rebecca Scritchfield said Hall may have trouble maintaining her Starbucks diet.

Mango, Real Madrid y FC Barcelona ganan a Google entre las empresas favoritas de los usuarios de Twitter en España


Los usuarios de Twitter del mundo tienen entre sus empresas favoritas a Google, mientras que los españoles se decantan por las de moda como Mango y deportes como el FC Barcelona y El Real Madrid.

Esta tendencia recuerda a un estudio publicado por LinkedIn en julio, que aseguraba que los jóvenes del mundo buscan empleo en Google, Accenture o Microsoft, mientras que en España Mango es la más consultada.

El número de seguidores de una empresa suele estar relacionado con su posición en el sector. Sin embargo, mientras en el resto del mundo las empresas más seguidas forman parte del 'top 25' de las empresas más importantes, en España sólo el 60 por ciento de las grandes empresas tienen el apoyo del público en las redes sociales.

Son datos proporcionados por el último estudio de Apple tree communications, en el llamado Twitteroscopio, que analiza qué marcas son las que realmente aprovechan todo el potencial de las redes sociales.
