I was right

It didn't take a genius to figure this one out. Yes I know it might have been obvious to some but back in October, I predicted that ISPs and hydro/electro companies would be giving computers away for free with a subscription.

It didn't take long before Telus became the first to do exactly that.

Telus gives you a free Dell C521 computer with a 3 year subscription at 41 bucks/month. You get a free $600 computer with a subscription that costs you $1476.

Next up: Microsoft/Apple will give you a free computer if you buy the OS, Office and a few years of support. They won't do it willingly but Yahoo and Google will force their hands.
