    Monitoring your kids' driving in real time

    Many new Ford and GM cars have built-in technology that allows you to monitor speed, signaling, and navigation when your child is driving. But when it comes to this type of digital snooping, teens and their parents often have differing opinions. Kids may call it an invasion of privacy. Most parents, of course, will likely feel otherwise.

    Your Facebook page or email could soon be passed on in a will just like physical property. Delaware is the first state to allow heirs access to their loved ones' digital legacies. Pedram Tabibi, a social media attorney, says in many cases this can be vital information, like banking and health data. He says current terms and conditions for websites such as Apple, Amazon, and Google won't let an account get passed onto someone else.

    In 2011, New York state was home to five hard cider-makers. Now, it boasts 29. The significant increase is part of an overall uptick in the number of alcohol producers in the state, as more and more consumers turn to locally produced beer, wine and spirits. According to figures released Monday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office, the total number of businesses producing alcoholic beverages in the state has more than doubled since 2011.

    Puerto Rico just balanced its first budget in more than a decade. Sales taxes are up. But optimism remains low when it comes to those making financial investments in the commonwealth. Maglan Capital hedge fund managers David Tawil and Steven Azarbad seem to think Puerto Rico itself is not in any imminent financial danger, just its major utility companies.
