Bass Ackward


You know how PCs all ship with loads and loads of crap pre-installed? Jukeboxes and "download-accelerators" and ISP trials and loads and loads more?

Well, Sony has acknowledged this problem. And is offering to ship new computers without all that stuff. However, they require that you pay a $50 premium for them to "remove" it! They call it the "Fresh Start" program.

Clearly there's something very wrong in Windows-land.

  1. Ha! Reminds me of when I noticed that unscented Charmin cost more than scented!

    I guess I might be persuaded if they were removing the scent of pine or like the scent of the screams of millions of dead trees or whatever.
