It's worse than that. They are trying to get companies to join in a program where, for convincing employees to use Windows Live Search (a Microsoft product) and Windows Internet Explorer 7 (a Microsoft product), they receive bonus money – in terms of rebates for: you guessed it: Microsoft products.

Refugee children are the only thing I hate more than fair trade. Suddenly I'm perceptive rather than a cunt.

...into the light of a dark black night.
