Technology is being more and more widely used in this era and as we are about to start to the new year, I have a feeling more technological inventions will come about. One of the new applications I found for the i phone is related to fruits and vegetables. This application is called the shoppers guide to pesticides and can be easily downloaded from this website. This guide gives the user easy to read information about which fruits and vegetables contain harmful pesticides, and which ones can be not bought in organic. I think it is a very interesting tool and makes shopping easy if you have an i phone.

So many new applications are coming out for the i phone related to food and shopping, and I think this is something cool to look at. Even if you only download it on your computer for free and use it as a quick reference before you go out to the grocery store and shop.
