Web Exclusive: What's Trending

(CNN/WJLA) - An elderly woman is recovering after she was attacked by a rabid beaver.  83-year-old Lillian Peterson of Lake Barcroft, Virginia says she was swimming in a lake Tuesday, when the animal came at her and latched on with its teeth.

A neighbor heard her screams for help and got the beaver off of her.  Peterson almost lost a thumb and suffered serious injuries to her arm and leg.  She will undergo a round of rabies shots.

(CNN) - Online retail giant, Amazon, is expected to release its latest Kindle fire tablet and e-reader device today.  The current version is sold- out on the company's site, except from private sellers.  Amazon has been trying to chip away at Apple's hold on the tablet market by selling Kindle Fire at a much lower price than iPad.

(CNN) - Some people pay a little extra to be the first to board a flight or for a hotel room over a holiday weekend.  But when it comes to restaurants, are you ready to pay a premium?

According to a New York Times report, restaurants are catching up with the rest of the hospitality industry when it comes to variable pricing.  You can book online reservations for one-thousand restaurants on savored.com.  But you only get discounts for off-peak dining, and in some cases, that might mean dinner at 11 o'clock or on a weeknight.

(CBS/KHOU) - Things are about to get more cramped for coach passengers on United Airlines.  The airline has announced plans to install slimmer seats to fit more passengers.

The airline says it's going to retrofit 152 of its planes with slim-line seats reducing the seat size from 18 inches to 17 inches.  Many customers say that's just too tight.

The change will allow for six extra seats in the cabin.  United says it's passengers shouldn't notice the change, especially since leg room won't be affected.  The airline also plans to equip its entire fleet with wi-fi capabilities by 2015.
