Target will be the largest brick-and-mortar to offer a service specifically for baby goods. 

Time for a Breaking Bad bender: On a high after the show’s first Emmy last Sunday, AMC’s Breaking Bad will air its series finale this Sunday. The finale concludes six seasons following high school teacher-gone-drug-producer Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and his partner in crime Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), and the network anticipates over 8 million viewers to watch how the drama wraps up.

#Hashlarious: It was just another “JT Tuesday” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon when the show’s namesake and pal Justin Timberlake reenacted what a Twitter conversation would sound like if spoken in real life. In the hilarious video, the comedy duo go back and forth speaking solely in #hashtags, poking fun at the nonsensical nature and communication patterns of the social network. The short that went live on YouTube Tuesday already has over 8 million views.

Cheers, Cher: 67 never looked so good!

iOS 7 redesign makes people sick – literally: The newest operating system from Apple, iOS 7, became available to download last Wednesday, and though the download numbers continue to impress, there are many who are less than impressed with the redesign. Several iPhone and iPad users have complained of motion sickness and vertigo due to the rapid animations and 3-D like effects of the system’s design, causing nausea and headaches, among other symptoms. Unfortunately, users who have downloaded iOS 7 onto their devices are unable to revert back to the previous operating system.
