A wonderful thing happened

A wonderful thing happened after the recent merger between eMachines and a company called FreePC. All 25,000 FreePC customers, taking advantage of the company's unique free-internet-and-computer-deal, were allowed to keep their computers with absolutely no strings attached. Real people benefitting from corporate business maneuvers? Gosh.

This got me thinking about corporate stupidity. Let's say they charged all their customers $50 to keep their PCs. I bet 99.9% of them would've paid to keep their nice, shiny computers. Now FreePC at least nabs an extra $1,250,000. It just doesn't make much sense to me, giving them away completely free. . . .
