Welcome to the world Keurig Kold

Tired of going to the store, pantry, soda machine to get your carbonated fix? Well, Keurig, the coffee pod making company, has come out with a soda making device called the ‘Keurig Kold.’
The device according to the AP allows soda DIYers to make their own “single servings of cold beverages including Coke, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, and flavored seltzer waters,” as well as eventually cocktail mixers. The problems are many and make this device a turn off for me.
The Coke K-‘cup’s won’t work in your existing Keurig (about 17% of American households have one), so you have to pony up for the $369.99 Kold, which is for sale as of today. Plus a little more than a buck per delicious 8-ounce beverage. I can get a bottle of coke for a dollar at the seven-11 down the street.

Facebook will always be free that post is a scam

If you went on Facebook within the last 24 hours you may have seen this message: ___
Now it’s official! It has been published in the media. Facebook has just released the entry price: $5.99 to keep the subscription of your status to be set to “private”. If you paste this message on your page, it will be offered for free (paste not share). If not, tomorrow, all your posts can become public, even the messages and photos that have been deleted. It does not cost anything for a simple copy and paste. “Better safe than sorry.” Channel 13 News was just talking about this change in Facebook’s privacy policy.
As of September 28, 2015 at 6:47 p.m. PST, I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, or posts, past, present, and future. By this statement, I give notice to Facebook that I strictly forbid disclosure, copy, distribution, or use of any information in my profile and/or it’s contents for public use or to be used against me. The contents of my profile is private and confidential information. The violation of my privacy is punishable by law (UCC 1-308- 1 1 308-103 and the Rome Statute). NOTE: Facebook is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version. If you do not publish a statement, at least once, you are allowing Facebook, use of your photos, as well as the information contained in your profile, and status updates. YOU MUST COPY & PASTE ONLY. DO NOT USE THE SHARE OPTION!
____
These are the reasons why I feel that this is the personification of a scam. 1. the miss use of legal terms. Per CNET:
“violation of privacy can be punished under the Uniform Commercial Code, a set of laws that govern commercial transactions in the US. However, the section cited in the message deals not with privacy but with contract terms that conflict with certain rights.”
2. it didn’t come from Facebook. If Facebook makes changes to your settings they shall send you an email.
Per CNET: Users also now see regular notifications alerting them to changes in Facebook’s privacy policies and terms of service.
3. The message shown above doesn’t cite a media source, such as ABC, CBS, CNET, Mashable. We are just to take the word of someone. Also, saying that channel 13 was just talking about this, means nothing to anyone. That would be like me saying that channel 5 was just talking about the football team. Your vagueness makes me smirk with hatred.
Although I must commend Facebook to use current events within their message warning that this is a scam. ___
“While there may be water on Mars, don’t believe everything you read on the internet today,” a Facebook post says . “Facebook is free and it always will be. And the thing about copying and pasting a legal notice is just a hoax. Stay safe out there Earthlings!
