Episode Description 
We check in with a mother in Massachusetts who drew up an 18-point contract listing the rules her 13-year-old son would have to live by if he got a nice new phone. Stuff like: put it away in public, and don't use it to lie or cheat. And digital photography has been, to say the very least, a challenge for the first instant photo company, Polaroid. Now, the company is testing out a new business model: Physical stores where you go to get prints of the digital photos on your smart phone, while you wait.
