Sometimes, you wonder what these folks are on. This from The Register …
This week’s award for the Most Astutely Selected Software Bundle goes to BT after the teleco tried to hook potential purchasers of Asus’ Linux-running Eee PC 900 by offering to ship it with a copy of Microsoft Office.
BT is offering the 20GB 900 for £335.99, but if anyone out there is willing to buy it for £422.34, the telco will include a copy of Office Home and Student in the box.
This despite the fact that, just a little way further down the page, BT’s list of Eee specifications admits that the elfin laptop is not “Office ready”.
The Register calculates that buying the bundle saves each punter a whopping £1.76 on the cost of purchasing the two products separately.
Like I say, what are these guys smoking?
