Business Briefs: Carlsberg, flying taxis, Neil Patrick Harris

Posted: Updated:

Luxury car company Aston Martin is expected to announce its IPO this week on Wall Street, plus quarterly earnings from Fed-Ex and Cracker Barrel.

After decades of environmental concerns, those plastic six-pack rings could be going extinct. Brewing company Carlsberg says they will get rid of the plastic rings on its products. They will be replaced with new type of packaging made with recyclable glue, according to Cheddar. The strong glue will hold the cans together at their sides and after the cans snap apart everything can be recycled.

The futuristic world of the Jetsons is one step closer to reality. Business Insider is reporting start-up Vertical Aerospace conducted its first test flights for an airborne taxi service earlier this summer. The company's goal is to provide flying taxi services in the U.K. by 2022. To begin, a vehicle would hold two people and a pilot with plans to eventually allow four passengers.

Actor Neil Patrick Harris and his celebrity-chef husband David Burtka may have fame, fortune and success, but they recently stopped by Cheddar to share their struggle with something so many other parents deal with - regulating tech time.

"It's so hard though, it's so hard, because iPad technology is fantastic, it's fantastic. You don't have to play violent, horrible games, there's games that teach them how to spell the letters correctly, there's math games that follow and adjust based on their strengths and weaknesses - so it's a tricky conversation,” says Harris.
