Sell your Soul to Microsoft, Get a Free Laptop
According to several sources, it seems that Microsoft has given a bunch of Ferrari laptops to select bloggers who promoted them through the year. And we're not only talking about A-list bloggers here, they also handed a few to operators of low-traffic blogs. I'm sure you can imagine that this has caused quite a firestorm of controversy through the blogosphere.
Assuming it doesn’t use Sony batteries, this laptop blows everything out of the water. It retails for a hot $2,299. But if you write about Microsoft, they might even give you one for free. Is it ethical? Probably not. Is it worth something to hard-working sweat and tears bloggers? Hell yeah.
