Lately, we’ve been quite obsessed with Nintendo and Space Invader swag, leaving Pac-Man feeling left out, isolated, and depressed. That’s why we’re showing the classic game some love with this Pac-Man Collectors’ Shot Glass Set. It’s a set of six 1.5 oz glasses, each with screen printed decals of the game’s characters…including the beloved Bonus Cherries! The set comes in a gift box, however only 2500 units were manufactured, for $30 USD. Hurry, before they’re all swallowed up (get it?).

Apple has finally gotten around to posting the details on how early iPhone owners can claim their $100 Apple Store credit. You know, the one that was a response to the backlash the company received after dropping the price on the iPhone by $200 - or 33% - just 61 days after it’s launch? It takes about five minutes, and Apple has done it in a way that makes it so only people who actually have the purchased iPhone in their possession, and activated with AT&T, can claim it. Here’s how it works:
- Head on over to the iPhone Store Credit page
- Input your iPhone’s AT&T phone number and serial number into the fields on the site
- You will receive an SMS which includes an access code. Enter the code into the site
- Print the result page, which includes the codes you need to redeem the credit at any Apple Store location, or at the Apple Online Store
To be safe, we’d recommend claiming right away, as you only have until November 30 to do so. If you bought your iPhone between August 22 and September 4, skip straight to the Apple Store itself, as you aren’t eligible for a $100 store credit - instead, you’ll just receive $200 in cash. For those who receive the credit, you can purchase just about anything sold by Apple, except another Apple Store Gift Card or an iTunes electronic Gift Certificate. You can use up to six credit codes when making a purchase at an Apple Retail Store and up to four credit codes at the Apple Online Store.
You have another chance to own a piece of a celebrity. Fergie was so moved by the sentiment of Live Earth that she decided to sell her Hummer on eBay and donate all of the proceeds to Global Green. The auction is part of eBay’s attempt at helping to save the planet with its Giving Works program, which donates 10 to 100% of sellers’ proceeds to benefit environmental charities. The bidding war will go on until Sept. 14, with the current bid around $64,000. We were just thinking that with all the gas it takes to move a Hummer, perhaps a better idea would be to offer up a more fuel-efficient vehicle.

What costs $12,000, is pregnant, but will never give birth? That would be this audio-animatronic, custom designed female bot up for sale on eBay. She was originally designed to demonstrate ultrasound equipment but we guess that her owner no longer needs her services. The unnamed robot (we’ll just call her Mom,) can move her eyes, mouth, eyebrows, nod, turn, go up on her elbows, rotate, and curl her wrists. After programming, she could also sing to her unborn bot while moving.
If you are interested, the seller would be willing to send you a DVD of her performance. You had better hurry though, as the bidding is set to end September 2. Frankly, as talented as Mom appears to be, we can’t envision living with robotic hormones running rampant.

While we were doing research on women who have better memory retention by drinking coffee, we noticed that Folgers is willing to help you age with more awareness with a free sample. We call that great timing. They also invite you to make your own commercial on their site, and they will donate $1.00 to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (up to $150,000) each time you create one or vote for others’. We figure that you will get such a rush from the caffeine in their gourmet coffee that your creativity will kick into maximum mode.

If you are as big a fan as we are for TokyoFlash’s distinctive watches, maybe now is the time to treat yourself to one of their elite watches, such as their classic Eleeno Eclipse Watch for $112.99. In honor of Uminohi (Ocean Day,) a holiday for expressing gratitude for gifts from the sea and the prosperity of Japan, they are offering a coupon good for anything from ¥1000 (~$8.00) to ¥5000 (~$40.00.) That’s a fairly decent deal considering many of their exclusive models run only in the $60.00 price range. The only catch is that you must use your coupon before July 16.

Still on the fence about discs? The Blu-ray Disc Association has launched a promotion through September 30 that will offer five free movies with any Blu-ray player, including a Sony PlayStation 3. Similar to a deal that HD DVD ran with Toshiba earlier this year, 21 movie picks include such choices as “Pearl Harbor,” “The Italian Job,” “Kiss of the Dragon,” and one of our fave Brooks’ films, “Blazing Saddles.” The company also reminds you that if you purchase a Panasonic DMP-BD10A, you can receive another 5 films. Although we appreciate the offer, we still think we will stick to NetFlix for the time being and save our movie-catching budget for when the war is over.
