This reminds me of the future school in the Simpsons that was sponsored by Pepsi. I believe credit could be gained by answering any question with Pepsi.
I am sure that I saw an advert for this towards the back pages of my Fantastic Four comics circa 1982
I visited Christchurch about 6 years ago and all bus trips were the same price regardless of distance traveled.
Of course I can not say if it is still the same, But I did appreciate the flat fare structure.
it doesn't service the customers who put their media library on a server instead of on disc.
With the lack of CD support, It also limits those of us who do put it on disc.
Agreed, I can't wait for open tablets that will allow "Real work" to be performed!
I thought that this was about education/research rather than amusement
Not a shill, but the following is a great read. http://www.amazon.com/On-Edge-Spectacular-Rise-Commodore/dp/0973864907/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1380580238&sr=8-2&keywords=on+the+edge+commodore

You can't. Because it was never advertised, it was never even mentioned on the box. The only 'promotion' it ever had was a few Sony reps talking about it and the fact it was included with the console.
I would say that reps speaking publicly about features of an product constitutes advertising. A bonus feature it may have been. They included it and spoke about it to target a segment of the population that would be interested in this. For some users this 'promotion' formed a part of their purchasing decision.
Besides which, it wasn't forcibly removed, you were free to choose not to agree to getting the latest version of the PS3 firmware if you wanted to. They made you choose between Linux and the latest firmware but you still had the choice (so that Navy example everyone gave as pretty much the only people who had found a use for it wasn't affected).
Yes you had the choice, however, by forcing this choice on your customers, you were limiting more than just access to the PS network.
Users could keep the other OS, and stay off the PS Network and not be able to run any new Playstation Software. Games released after the update required the latest firmware. For those who wanted the Other OS as something to tinker with on the side, this choice crippled their Gaming machine.
