EDISON -

1. Parents, how many times have you told your kids, put your phone down.
Crosswalks have a similar message. This one in Kansas City is painted with reminders. "Make eye contact" and "Eyes up, phones down." The hope is they're paying attention to traffic. It's painted on the sidewalk because they're likely looking down...at their phone. 

2. Now you don't even have to put your phone down while lifting weights.
You just get a case that weighs 22 pounds that's part of a barbell. Real product in Japan cost about $100. Pretty sturdy case right there. The phone is permanently affixed to the barbell. Good luck putting it in your pocket.

3. Not that President Trump's attorney Michael Cohen doesn't have enough to deal with.
This morning, he got into an Uber in New York City. The car waiting for him. So hounded by the cameras, he got into the wrong uber. He's inside. Driver says, Are you Steve?  Cohen then gets out of the car to find his own uber ride.
