Our new toothbrushes came with 3, count ‘em, 3, free “music downloads.”  With lots of DRM.  And the site only works in IE.  And even then, I’m supposed to download a Sony DRM music player of some sort to play the songs.  Riiiiight.  Funny how tainted a brand can get from one little use of black-hat hacking methods to keep kids from putting music somewhere where they might actually listen to it.  Did I mention the Flash lander page?  I bought a toothbrush, I know, you don’t have to beat me over the head with a spinning, frothy toothpaste-laden brush.
