Social Cooking Preparing food becomes a social affair with apps, tools and games Implications - With a variety of apps and online recipe tools available these days, cooking has become infinitely easier for even the most novice chef. Now, the act of cooking is also becoming more of a social activity, with everything from social media cooking apps to social cooking games encouraging consumers to share recipes, cook together and more. As the world becomes increasingly connected through technology, it only follows that individuals' everyday activities, such as cooking, become increasingly intertwined and connected as well.

Portable Purity Convenient water filtration systems calm fears of polluted H2O Implications - Research has found a correlation between contaminated drinking water and health issues such as cancer, asthma and even learning disabilities. While many consumers continue to be unfazed by the water in their taps, an increasing number are taking extra precautions. Helping concerned individuals ensure they always have safe drinking water on hand are innovative water purifying systems that are convenient and easy to use. These purifiers and filters appeal to our innate fears of sickness by contaminated consumption, and as long as there is a fear (and as more consumers become aware of the issue), these products will receive attention in the marketplace.
