THEY SHOULD HAVE USED DIET COKE
CNet reports that Pepsi's iTunes promotion goes flat:
Apple Computer said Wednesday that about 5 million free songs have been given away through a Pepsi promotion, far fewer than the 100 million tracks that could have been redeemed.
An Apple representative said the music giveaway was probably the biggest ever of its kind but admitted that the company gave away fewer songs than it had intended.
"We had hoped the redemptions would have been higher," said Katie Cotton, Apple's vice president of worldwide corporate communications. Customers with winning bottle caps have until Friday to redeem their free music tracks.
I'd love some "free" tunes, but not at the cost of drinking Pepsi or buying Ben & Jerry's.
