Sony launches a new option, which will give you a $50 discount on your purchase if you choose to crapify it. On Engaget, here.
In other words, they’re charging $50 to not crapify your computer.
I have a Vaio and actually really like Sony product. However, someone has their head screwed on backward to think this idea is going to fly. It shows such a complete disconnect from the market.
Sony got a good start appealing to enthusiasts, with beautiful hardware design. But I can only imagine some freshly-minted MBA product manager coming up with this brilliant idea to “monetize” crapware. I hope that same bozo who thought up this absurd idea will be so fired.
Of course, there’s always the free PC Decrapifier. But that doesn’t beat a clean machine to start.
