Studies show that married couples live longer and happier lives, but there's one thing that's still getting some married women upset--they're the ones doing the cleaning!

A new study states that overall women spend seven extra hours a week vacuuming and dusting.

So what are the men doing?

According to the study, most men tend to work more outside the home, while women take care of the house.

And if you have a child?

Well for many women the household work doubles once they have a child!

What do you think? Do you feel that wives are doing more around the house than their husbands?

Should husbands start helping out their wives more?

Also, on the Dot-Com Desk, there are tons of cell phones out there geared at young adults and teens, but what about the older crowd?

One company called GreatCall has stepped up to the plate with cell phones made just for seniors.

The Samsung Jitterbug and the Jitterbug One Touch are rising in popularity.

The phones have large buttons and a bright keypad, so you don't have to worry about all that high tech mumbo jumbo.

Would you purchase a Jitterbug? Why or why not?

Let me know!
