Starbucks recently partnered with Swiss Train Company SSB to create the first mobile coffee store on a train. Starbucks converted a double-decker train into a sweet store on wheels (er, tracks?), and it runs exclusively in Switzerland on the route between the Geneva Airport and St. Fallen.

Coffee and computer fiends (because they really are one and the same, right?) will love this wacky coffee decal for the Apple 5W USB power adaptor, courtesy of Etsy seller creativedecalskin. It’s made with high grade case vinyl, and the adhesive backing is waterproof and extremely durable.

We’ve all seen the desperate plea on social media from a friend: “Help, send caffeine.” Well, now you can do just that. As long as your friend is near a Starbucks, you can send them a gift card through Twitter and they can redeem it for glorious caffeinated life blood. All you need to do is connect your Starbucks and Twitter accounts and choose the recipient of the gift. I think it’s a fun way to send a little something to your friends and incredibly smart of Starbucks to figure it out.

For many people, being able to order a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks means fall has arrived. The drink is the definition of cozy in a cup. However, if you want to try something different, you can order a drink that’s like Harry Potter’s butterbeer. You have to be willing to be a slightly obnoxious, specific drink orderer, but it’s possible. Blessed Elements came up with the combination so take note: Order a creme frappuccino base with whole milk, 3 pumps caramel syrup, 3 pumps toffee nut syrup and a caramel drizzle on top.
I need to try this immediately.

What if the ongoing advertising war between brands meshed up with online gaming? Angry Brands would result! It’s a stretch, but artist Yakushev Grigory made it come to life with his art. The logos of brands like Starbucks, Google, Apple, and more are transformed into the birds from the Angry Birds and everyone should duck to be safe. Grigory didn’t turn any companies into pigs – yet.
