A former employee of Cold Stone Creamery in Iowa City is accused of stealing money, cakes, and other treats from the business. His name: Conor P. Fudge!
YEP!! Security footage caught him stealing money from a safe, as well as cakes and containers of ice cream. Fudge has been charged with third-degree burglary and an aggravated misdemeanor count of third-degree theft. Court records do not list an attorney.

Two British men earned a golden ticket to the big house after instigating a drunken street brawl – while dressed as Oompa Loompa characters from the Willy Wonka movie.
Louis Gelinas and Matthew Wright, who were decked out in green wigs and orange face paint for a night on the town, downed a few too many Gobstoppers and ended up drunkenly challenging two other men to a fight – because they didn't like the way the other guys were dressed.
Wright was sentenced to 10 months behind bars, while Galinas got off with community service. (The Independent)
A fake advertisement telling Apple users that they could make their iPhones waterproof by upgrading to new software tricked a bunch of users into breaking their phones.
The joke advertisement, which closely resembles Apple’s official ads, was sent out on different social networks. “Update to iOS 7 and become waterproof,” claims the ad, explaining that “in an emergency, a smart-switch will shut off the phone’s power supply and corresponding components to prevent any damage to your iPhone’s delicate circuitry.”
Those who believed the ad upgraded their iPhones – and then dunked them into the water to test the new “new feature,” turning their phones into paperweights. (The Independent)
Those haunted houses will be opening up in the Quad City area soon...but this one in Pennsylvania takes it to a whole...totally wrong...level...
Shocktoberfest in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, is challenging visitors to strip down completely naked before entering the haunted house.

Now that you've installed iOS 7 with all of its new bells and whistles, you realize that new features come at a price - battery life. There is an extremely noticeable decrease in battery life based on consistent running of background processes.
To help you with having the newest software, and still having good battery life - we've put together 4 things you can do to help increase your battery life.
1) Disable Background Motion
The dynamic wallpapers and 3D parallax in iOS 7 are extremely visual effects, but also are very big battery killers. If you are willing to give us these two new effects, you will be on your way to a more efficient battery life.
Disable this by going into Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion
2) Stop Location Based Services
Almost every app you install will request access to your location. This along side location tracking, the compass, along with iAds for local advertisement placement all use the GPS to determine your location. They all also cause a decrease in battery life. Turning these features off, will make sure your phone isn't always trying to determine your location.
This is how you stop location based services: Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services
Make sure Location-Based iAds, Popular Near Me, Compass Calibration, Diagnostics & Usage, and Traffic is turned off.
3) Background Application Refresh
In iOS 7 comes the addition of background application refresh, this allows some of your apps to automatically update themselves with you are not using them. It's a great feature if you hate updating your apps, but also causes your phone to always be pinging the app store to search for new updates. If you are willing to give up this feature you will increase your battery life.
Turn off this feature here: Settings > General > Background App Refresh
4) Disable AirDrop
AirDrop is the new file sharing option for iOS 7. It allows you to instantly drop files between any other iPhone 5, 5C, or 5S running iOS 7. While it is a handy feature, it is consistently looking for other devices that could be around you. This causes a much higher usage of your phone and battery.
Disable this feature open up the control center by swiping up from the bottom of your screen, click AirDrop, and then Off.
