Tetris & Breakout piggy banks makes saving fun againBack in the day it cost just one quarter to play your favorite arcade machine. Well, now you can play two Atari arcade classics for just one penny. They aren’t totally faithful to the original arcade machines, but hey it only costs a penny and you get to save that penny. A penny played is a penny earned.

Every coin you drop in starts a new game, which is much cooler then say, dropping your coins in a bank shaped like a pig. These aren’t easy to find outside of Japan, but Strapya World is taking pre-orders and they will ship them worldwide. They’ll cost you $39.90.

Zeno device helps emo teens remove acne
If the mpion MP3 player didn’t remove your hardcore teen acne, try this Zeno device. It claims to be an acne Clearing device, that will improve your complexion. In fact, it’s the 1st FDA approved home gadget to remove acne.

The tip heats up when applied to a pimple. Supposedly that will cause some sort of a shock to the bacteria that causes acne. They claim that “two to three 2 1/2 minute treatments spread over 24 hours are sufficient for most pimples” and most pimples will disappear. There’s no question that this is the geeky gadget way to remove acne, but does it work? I think if ANYTHING worked the way they claimed, there would be no need for this product. It retails for $184.95.
