…Fingerstaches give your face some style?

Fingerstache

You don’t want to let your MacBook have all the moustache fun now, do you?

Gama-Go’s Fingerstache temporary tattoos give you the ability to apply a moustache to your face with the flick of a finger, but the freedom to take the thing off at the end of the day as well so that you’re not stuck with hipster branding for the rest of your life.

At just $5 for a pack of 19 Fingerstaches, it’s a can’t miss deal on a pretty sweet style.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Zero S?

Zero S

The Zero S is “a high performance supermoto motorcycle that is revolutionary because it is fully electric”.

With a Z-Force power pack and a handmade aircraft grade aluminum alloy frame, the power-to-weight ratio of the Zero S is as equally at home in an urban environment as it is in the occasional off-road detour, and will take you as far as 60 miles at up to 60 miles per hour. Plus, with an electric motor providing instant acceleration, there is plenty of torque available to make the bike as fun as it is green.

If the fastest, cleanest and lightest bike around sounds like a good deal to you, then check out the Zero S. The world will thank you.

…The Mac Bundle Box sells apps for charity?

Mac Bundle Box

There’s something about Macs that just makes the app developers want to bundle, and the latest offering is the Mac Bundle Box (their fourth!), a collection of thirteen apps worth more than $333 that is selling for just $49.

In addition to the great deal they’re offering buyers, they’re also offering to do some good too, with 5% of each sale is going to Charity:Water, an organization that’s helping to build wells for the more than 1.1 billion people who don’t have safe drinking water.

The included applications are Relationship, Code Collector, DrawIt, Espionage, Cover Stream, DEVONnote, QuickScale, Project Calculator, Transcriva, Magnet, Involer, Stuf and Blog Assist, so if you’ve been looking to pick up any one of those, then perhaps now’s the time to pick up all of them and do some good while you’re at it.

…Wendy’s gets an F in Frosty-nomics?

Wendy's Frosty

I have a strange habit of checking the price per unit of the things that I buy, partly because I like to examine the motivation that companies think they need to give you in order to entice you to buy a bigger size.

On a recent trip to Wendy’s, I was waiting for my order (Spicy Chicken Meal and a Small Chocolate Frosty) and staring at the menu when I noticed something strange: Wendy’s doesn’t entice you to buy a bigger size at all. In fact, they actually price the Frosty so that the biggest size isn’t the best deal.

Here’s how it brakes down:

  • Small Frosty (12 ounces) = $1.19 (9.92 cents per ounce)
  • Medium Frosty (16 ounces) = $1.69 (10.56 cents per ounce)
  • Large Frosty (20 ounces) = $1.99 (10.05 cents per ounce)

Though a Large Frosty does cost less than a Medium Frosty, the Small Frosty costs less than either of them, which means if you’re looking for the best deal, you should actually just buy two Small Frostys and pay $2.38 for 24 ounces of Frosty goodness! (At 9.92 cents per ounce.)

I don’t know if this is the case at all Wendy’s, or if each Wendy’s has some choice over how they price their products (let me know in the comments if you’ve noticed the price of a Wendy’s Frosty lately) but it sounds like someone needs to take a repeat course in Frosty-nomics!

I guess sometimes it pays to pay attention…

…Mac Mix will save you some cash?

Mac Mix

Mac Heads take note: Mac Mix could be your chance to save some serious cash on a bundle of the best Mac applications (Maclications?).

Unlike other shareware bundle events, which offer a discount bundle of pre-selected apps, Mac Mix lets you choose your own bundle. The end result is a bundle that has no fillers, and contains only the applications that you want and/or need.

Obviously there’s got to be a catch, so the discounts increase as you buy more apps. Any single app starts at 10% off, but if you buy three apps, that quickly climbs to 30%, and by 12 apps, you’re saving a full 75% off of the retail price. With 28 apps to choose from, picking out 12 good ones shouldn’t be too hard.

So what’s available?

Highlights include Parallels, MacGourmet, Forklift, HoudahGeo, TextExpander, Comic Book Lover, and much, much more.

Each app is categorized into one of five groups (productivity, web tools, image and video, system enhancements, and entertainment) and you can read up on each app before buying, including a star based rating system, and a bullet point feature list.

And if that’s not enough, part of the proceeds go towards planting trees to help out the environment, so you can probably get a write-off from the purchase of a Mac Mix if your tax guy is willing to be creative.
