New consumer alerts on Amazon. A new feature shares product recall information for items bought on the site. Customers will get a personalized email.
They’ll also see an alert banner on their “Your Orders” page, which links to more info about the recall.

Next, a rare pair of Apple ‘sneakers’ is up for sale, by auction house Sotheby’s. The shoes, complete with the old apple rainbow logo, they were created for the company’s employees in the ’90’s. A pair has never been sold to the public. The price tag is $50,000!

And finally, a cool way to beat the heat. This “fan jacket” is going viral in Japan.
It has its own central-air system, two built-in electric fans that keep a gentle breeze blowing around your body. The “fan jacket” first hit the market years ago, but it’s been updated thanks to improved technology.
