Keep Track of Honesty in Advertistements at Mouseprint.org

If you are buying a pint of Haagen-Daaz Ice Cream, you might be surprised to learn that it is no longer a pint, but now only 14 ounces. You would have to be an eagle-eyed consumer to notice the slight difference in the cartons. The price has not been reduced, just the size.

To keep track of the shrinking pint, visit Mouseprint.org. The site also tells about some of the advertisements that don't really tell the truth, and will explain the creative use of asterisks by some companies.

Another great blog to subscribe to that discusses topics like this is The Consumerist.
