Disney testing out new mug technology in an effort out to stop drink refill abuse.Disney testing out new mug technology in an effort out to stop drink refill abuse.

The rampant use of hotel guests taking advantage of their refill privelages have finally put Disney over the edge. DIS Unplugged reports that they are currently testing new mugs that have embedded RFID chips in them. If you've exhausted your free refill privelages for that day, no soda dispensed for you. Take that, thrifty guests!

Starbucks giving away free coffee on April 15th, bring your own mug.Starbucks giving away free coffee on April 15th, bring your own mug.

The free coffee giveaway is an effort to raise awareness that we should all be ditching paper cups in favor of switching to a more reusable environmentally-friendly coffee container. This container would probably be a cylinder mug-like type of object - most likely a mug. More info (and a short flick) over here.

Cocain sandwiches, anyone?Cocain sandwiches, anyone?

Nope, not the smartest way to smuggle something into a country. Probably not all that tasty either.
