We text message family and friends everyday and it's the new way to communicate, but text messages aren't just for small talk anymore--they're now being used to keep young adults healthy.

Recent studies show that only half of adolescents take their medication on time and this can cause harmful long term effects.

And that's exactly why more parents and doctors are using something all teens are familiar with--text messages!

Some doctors in Ohio are starting to send out a text every time a young patient needs to take their medication and so far..so good.

Do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not?

Let me know!

And as the saying goes all men are created equal, but Apple's saying not all TV shows are!

It looks like some hit shows on HBO will cost more on iTunes than other shows.

So if you're looking to catch up on The Sopranos or get the latest on Sex and the City be prepared to cough up some extra cash.

Currently all TV shows on iTunes cost $1.99.
