Surgical Mesh used in Hernia Repair Recalled

Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, has issued a voluntary recall of ETHICON PHYSIOMESH Flexible Composite Mesh following two studies that found patients implanted with the mesh had a higher risk of hernias re-opening and requiring additional surgery.  The company states that it believes the higher rates of revision surgery to be a "multifactorial issue" but has yet to pinpoint the factors causing the product's failure.  In addition to the Physiomesh problem, Johnson & Johnson is facing thousands of lawsuits related to its vaginal-mesh inserts.

Pokémon Go: How to do it Right

The new augmented reality game by Niantic Labs, Pokémon Go, has already passed the 100 million download mark with no sign of stopping. When you turn on the app, an accurate map of your location is superimposed with PokeStops , Gyms, and 142 of the original 151 Pokemon (three are not native to the Americas and the rest are not yet out), effectively turning planet Earth into the Kanto Region. Despite the AR being in its initial stage and lacking things like trading, live battles, and an accurate tracker, users are everywhere and are already making a noticeable impact on interactive technology culture.
