Coming Soon: Star Wars Burgers

"To promote the re-release of the Star Wars prequels in 3D, a French fast food chain is offering two varieties of themed burgers – the Darth Vader, on a black bun, and the Jedi burger (which is conveniently and thematically brown, it seems). Of course, this begs the question – what ingredients should be in a Star Wars burger anyway? Wampa meat?"

Windows 7 promotion raises cholesterol

If you didn’t know that Windows 7 was released yesterday, I’m glad to see that you have finally awakened from that coma. The Microsoft marketing machine has been in full gear leading up to the launch date, and the internet was abuzz with all sorts of news surrounding launch events. The Japanese chain of Burger King’s decided to get in on the action as well. The Windows 7 Whopper burger is stacked with 7 beef patties and a sprinkling of vegetation, and puts any other burger offering to shame, towering over them at 5” tall. The heart stopping delight costs 777 yen, which is about R65. A rather contradictory product tie-in, considering that Windows 7 is supposed to be less bloated, and this burger will no doubt induce the meat sweats. Of course, as with all Microsoft related products, one should read the fine print. The burger is only sold at 777 yen to the first 30 customers. After that, it goes for R120. No prizes for guessing how long the promo burger will be available, but suffice to say, you better get to Japan within the next 6 days if you want to wrap your chops around this Whopper.
