CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

CVS says it's taken a long look at feedback from its customers -- so it's shortening its receipts.

The CVS "extra care" receipts are notoriously long. People have posted pictures of receipts several feet long online and some of the receipts are taller than the people themselves.

CVS says it will trim the reward portions of its receipts, but still offer the coupons and discounts. The company says the new -- shorter -- receipts will be more convenient and better for the environment.

One such receipt was posted by Todd Visioli, a FOX producer in New York. After shopping for school supplies with his daughter, they received one that was particularly long.

So long, in fact, that it's as tall as his daughter! She's 4 ft. tall, by the way.

    A tiny new spy device aims to automatically transcribe and Tweet overheard conversations. It's called Conversnitch.  Brian House and Kyle McDonald are behind the eavesdropping device.  They say it bridges the gap between (presumed) private physical space and public space online.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City's horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years. A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues.
